That was obsessively creepy at times, but I'm glad it was a happy ending. Very very well-written story, definitely worth a read.

man i read and re-read this story so many times. i had moments where id use the OST from the anime to make the moments more memoriable. kinda had lillium playing in the background in chapter 14 when they had their first time and even though you had details it was easy for me to imagine the kind of bliss lucy was feeling when kouta admitted how he felt as they were doing it. the ending was good. i prefer this over the manga's ending. hell even though the anime only had 13 episodes i still liked how it went more than manga cause i think it's ending just didn't sit well for me. only thing i can imagine happening is the baby being born and acting like Nyu where she wouldn't really inherit any of the kind of hate her mother had i guess to show that Nyu would be the start or hope that maybe a peace can be found between humans and diclonis.

That is what would happen had he said his cousin was a girl.
By the way, in the end of the anime, it's only kind of a cliff hanger.
You see, the person at the gate was Kaede. The ending of the music-box simbolizes Lucy's (the human hating diclonious side of her) death. When her horns were shot off, she lost her diclonious powers, and ibso facto lost her diclonious feelings.
The clock that never worked starting simbolizes Kaede's (the human "good" part of her) return, in that it has been so long since both had been heard.
So, yeah, I hope that clears up some stuff. Great conclusion to a great story. Arigato!
I don't speak any Japanese(weaps)

Excellent! This is the best EL story I have read yet. I like the fact that Lucy got a little slice of heaven in the end. I am also glad that Kouta did not care for Yuka at the end. Please keep up the great job.

I just watched Elfen Lied this morning, and I immediately went looking for some good fanfiction. I am really glad I found this, and I loved every sentence! Great work!

Just have finished this story, and... it's weird. On the one hand, and objectively, it's a very well-written story. But on the other, and subjectively, I just cannot accept Lucy being the same sociopath that she was in the original (and a borderline yandere on top of that).
This Lucy built her life on lies, and never saw people as anything beyond monsters; it is pretty hard for me to sympathize with her, or accept a happy end that she just did not "deserve".
I am not saying it's a bad story, but it was not enjoyable for me.

Just finished reading this (managed to get it done in a day) and I can honestly say I'm crying so so much! You're an amazing writer

I loved your story. Though I'm completely fine with the ending, do you have any plans for a sequel?
| DW2S chapter 1 . 9/20/2012
Decided to reread this story, my fav elfenlied fic to be exact, hmm would love to see more stories like these!
| Lu Bane Na chapter 14 . 9/13/2012
I want to say alot about this chapter, but I can only think of one thing, and that's that I loved this chapter.
| Lu Bane Na chapter 12 . 9/13/2012
I wonder if you're gonna evolve their relationship to more then just friends. I can't imagine that they haven't kissed or anything in those six years. Putting up with hell for 11months a year, I can't believe she hasn't tried to get a little more comfort from him.
I'm excited about this whole new plot you have going. I can't even recognize the canon anymore.
| Lu Bane Na chapter 10 . 9/13/2012
Man, the love and desperation she holds for him is so heart tearing.
