| Jman7 chapter 23 . 7/15
I kind of disagree, if any thing this fic follows Garnet’s personality from the games TOO much (or maybe I’m misunderstanding you), what I mean is that canon wasn’t that good and it would be better for FFIX fics to IGNORE canon.
| Anonymous chapter 1 . 7/15
You don’t have to follow the games “details” and you don’t need to follow the games “characterization” of Zidane and Garnet because let’s be honest FFIX was really poorly written and Zidane and Garnet are poorly written characters, their love story was poorly written especially with how Rebochan describes Garnet and her stupid “return to Alexandria” actions and ABANDONING Zidane, not to mention all of Garnet’s wangst after the attack on Alexandria which you really could have just pretended never happened, it was forced drama (and people whine about Cloud and Squall and VII and VIII in general as being “emo and try-hard”), not to mention it contradicts the chapter before that where Garnet didn’t want to be away from Zidane, while Zidane is just acting all hunky dory, if anything Zidane should have been the more angstey and sad one here, it was dumb in the game and it was silly here (I mean no offence to you, I’m just giving criticisms against the game itself, IX is really overrated and has a lot of it’s glaring flaws overlooked).
Other fanfics like “Filling in the Blanks” and “The Thief and his Princess” ignore the games canon and it’s much better for it, having a much better done, deep and strong wholesome love story for Zidane and Garnet.

You know, I come back to this fic at the times I feel the most lost, and somehow it digs me out of whatever hole I'm in. So, thank you for that.
As a side note: I always forget that 16 year old me was an avid reviewer, so when I get to the bottom of this chapter and see your reply comment to .14karatgold. (i.e. 16 year old me) it cracks me up. Especially because 16 year old me clearly had feelings but lacked the suavite to express them constructively.
Anyway, thank you for everything you do. You're a true star in this fandom.

Having repeatedly re-read many of the chapters in Brick By Brick and Foundations over the span of a few years, You have without a doubt set the bar on how Garnet's personality should be. Not just her's however, you managed to bring to life pretty much every character in a way that nothing short of spectacular. I'm no professional writer, but have written a couple of fics for FF9 of my own and often find myself wishing i had the ability to portray the characters as well as you have done. Here's hoping you Decide to write another story for ff9 in the future!

Pretty sure the Behemoth was on disc 4... Also, Zidane is pronounced Zih-dahn.

Sargatanas isn't available until you have the airship. You also accidentaly typed Lost Continent, instead of Outer Continent.

A ship's rudder would be at its stern, not its bow. Bow front, stern back.

I could not even begin to count how many times I've read this since 2009. I kid you not, I reread both BBB and Foundations in their entirety (usually in a span of two days, or a single sitting if I feel like ignoring life enough) at LEAST three times a year. Thank you, truly, for your wonderful writing. I wish I would come up with a comment for each and every of your works, but I'm hoping this will suffice and that you'll see this. I was 13 when I found your profile and have been a fan ever since. It's been 9 years and I still loiter around, re-enjoying your brilliant stuff and secretly hoping that you'll return to here some day. I just thought I'd let you know that you have truly left an impression on me, and I'm sure other readers of yours will say the same. If ever you produce original works, I would be more than eager and excited to read them. Sending my love and my wishes your way! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for such wonderful thoughts that have left such wonderful memories for me, as well as honouring such a wonderful game! Take care X

| freyja0taku chapter 18 . 1/1/2016
It's random but cute.. hahah.. Should've been an extra chap of fur beneath her fingertips .. Poor Eiko.. she didn't get it.. I wonder if Vivi did.. hahah xD
| freyja0taku chapter 16 . 12/31/2015
What Zidane said was wow.. hahah and a jealous Garnet? It's so funny.. xD and I also prefer to say his name Zi-dayn. just not Zee-dan.. no :3
| freyja0taku chapter 15 . 12/30/2015
Oh.. I really like their talk here.. but I kinda don't like the fact that you made Garnet speak to Amarant first .. instead of Zidane.. I was also shocked that she made it to Alexandria without companion.. hahah but it's still a great chap.. :3

I've no clue if you'll ever see this review but in case you ever do I just want you to know that wow this fic means a lot to me. I started reading it when you first started writing it and I finished it back then too. And rereading it has just caused it to resonate with me more. In the 5 years since I first read it I never once forgot about it. I cried during a few parts because you wrote the interactions between Zidane and Dagger so well. There was development and you really filled in the blanks that weren't included in game. This story is beautiful and I look forward to finally reading all of Foundations. The day I saw that Foundation received an update I was so surprised, so happy 3 Maybe you look back at this fic and think "It could have been better" or "I wish I'd have done this instead" but I think it's lovely. I am positive I will read it again someday and I really hope you're able to come across this review at some point. Thank you for making something so special for my favorite game 3 3
