I'd really enjoy at least a one-shot to see what life for Terra and Cloud is like after all this craziness. I love this fanfic btw, and it's one of my favorites for any Final Fantasy related fanfic. Frankly, it's leagues better than the story that the actual game had. lol

This fic was very good, and I love the quotes you add in at the beginning.
Very fitting you chose quotes of Chaos and Cosmos for chapters 37-39, with 40 having the description of Omega from V.
I nearly had a squeal when you chose Kairi's poem from Kingdom Hearts as the quotes for the Epilogue
It's a fitting closure, Jecht and Golbez are back in the home worlds, and our couple is together.
I applaud you!

Hey! I would like to say something about your chapter 31 where the Emperor and Jecht battle. I am a veeery big Emperor fan and this chapter really made me furious. The way you mock Mateus and his powers is outrageous! First of all he is defeated by Jecht alone! Lets recall Final Fantasy 10...in this game Jecht is only a human with some powers granted by Yu Yevon. And in FF2 Mateus is already really powerful IN THE BEGINNING of the game and in the end of the story he is literally TWO GODS AT THE SAME TIME! So Mateus Jecht but how is it that even when the Emperor has the crystal of darkness he is easily defeated and Jecht can land blows on the Emperor like his powers were nothing (and now the Emperor literally is a god with his crystal). And on top of that Jecht smashed Mateusmeteor (STARFALL! Which is the Emperors GREATEST ATTACK!) to pieces with JUST BARE HANDS! (In this scene my mind was shouting "WHAT THE FUUUUCK!") And when Chaos kills the Emperor he literally throws away his only MASTERMIND. Mateus created their schemes and is the most intelligent of all the villains. So (stupid) Chaos just throws his greatest asset into a pool of lava... _ and the Emperors pleading and crying to Chaos to safe his life was so OFF CHARACTER. He is the fucking EMPEROR! HE WILL NEVER PLEAD OR CRY TO ANYONE! And his death over all was really insulting to this great character - Mateus deserves better. I understand if you prefer Jecht over Mateus but that scene wasnt realistic and I really dont get why you even wrote that SHITTT! (sorry...) in your great story. I really enjoyed this far. But I dont know if I can bring myself to read your story to the end. You ruined my favorite character and I can never forgive you. ( sorry if I was too harsh on you...)

Thank you so much for writing this, it's been an enjoyable ride from beginning to end. The action was epic, the storyline itself intriguing, and every character was fleshed out so well, you left no one's story undertold.
I know that sometimes writing something this massive and sticking to it can be one of the hardest challenges to accomplish, but you've more than surpassed those challenges, and the passion you have shows brightly through the words in this story.
Here's to this story's Cloud and Terra, and all of their comrades.
| Ikatsui chapter 41 . 9/12/2012
I very much enjoyed this. It took me several days to finish, and I enjoyed the time I wasted. This fanfic is superb, dragging me along for quite the ride.
Now, if only you made a continuation. Terra adjusting to life in Cloud's world would be quite the interesting fic.
| Non entity chapter 1 . 8/22/2012
Seeing as all I've been doing is reviews I decided to dig up some old favorites and see what got me into the in the first place.
I can honestly say that this story alone held a strong place in my heart from the moment I clicked on the title to read chapter one ages ago. I distinctly remember dealing with a poor Internet connection and nosy family as I sat down to read. Even after I got my own set up for fanfiction I still used the junky pc to read this, because it was where I started the journey, so why not finish there?
Enough on me though, time for the hazy stuff. While at least six months since I can last recall reading this, I can say I was hooked at every chapter. I saw characters interact in ways that made more sense than the actual games depiction, and eventually regarded your own tale as vastly superior to the original. Even after duodecim came out you stuck to your guns, while incorporating the slightest hints about things from before that could have happened. The tale woven was excellent, and the subtle romance was quite nice in comparison to what is on this site (mostly junk and fangirl posts that should be relegated to fansites). I appreciate the time, effort, and quality that went into this piece of work.
So we salute you, Mr. Actually Writes Good Fanfiction Guy (echoes) and we give you a cyber beer in thanks. And a plate of those cookies too. Supposedly they're actually not bad.

I really love it.
| Maeniel Celeres chapter 41 . 11/12/2011
A perfect ending...to a perfect story.
I have been reading this story since you first posted it in 2009, and upon reading the first chapter, I was hooked, eagerly awaiting the next. Hated how long it took for you to update, but when you deliver such excellent chapters, the wait is worth it.
Every chapter since that very first has been well written, and while it may not be exactly how the games story went, I actually find myself liking you're version better.
The Cloud and Terra romance was very believeable, and was well worth the wait when it finally came to a head. I never really thought of them as a couple to be honest until I started reading you're story, and watched videos on the Japanese version of the game (Before I got my own copy of course). Got to say, I think it will be my favourite Cloud pairing from now on :).
All in all, I loved the whole story, and epilogue was really satisfying...I loved how you showed each character, back in their own world. Although I must admit, I did want to see Tifa and the gangs reaction to Terra...but I suppose that would have been too much, and possibly harmed the ending. The epilogue with Tidus...well I always thought that the time he was away, was the time that he was fighting in Dissidia...I tohught it fit in rather nicely. But I do like how you did it, so Im not complaining.
Congratulations on finishing a fantastic story, and sharing it with all of us Drake.

A long project complete, and one hell of a great story!
You did an awesome job and had me hooked since the beginning
| 3 Phantoms chapter 41 . 11/8/2011
Alas the tale comes to an end. It's kind of sad that it's ended but I liked the ending all the same. Good luck with your future projects, I look forward to them! BTW couldn't Shinryu have just sent Terra home then transported her to Cloud's world? After all he sucked 'em into the converging world.
| LordofVermillion chapter 41 . 11/6/2011
It's always a bittersweet feeling when a story ends. I thoroughly enjoyed your work as well as your interpretations of Dissidia lore. I'm pretty sure some fans might cry for a sequel, but I honestly think it's best to leave what happens afterwards to fan interpretation like all good stories.
Have a good one and I hope you'll continue writing when inspiration hits you
| Seproth chapter 41 . 11/6/2011
... wow I don't even know where to begin. First and foremost congratulations on finishing a story of this... scale. Easily one of if not the best piece of Dissidia fanfiction out there (no offense to other authors) and easily the longest. Holy hell
This chapter alone took me something like 2 and a half hours to read.
With that said I mean... even I don't know what to say. I have questions. Most of them are where do they go from here... which was the point of the epilogue
I suppose first and foremost was Omega the true villain of this entire story? Was he planned to exist or did he just pop up at some point and you ran with the idea?
Do you plan to if anything do the occasional one shot set in this universe you created if anything just for your own personal amusement or are you content with everything as it is and letting us the fans imagine what comes next for our heroes?
Well I have more questions I'd like to ask but I need to get my thoughts back together its been a long day of reading this.
With that said I loved your story I've been following it for... what two years now? Ever since chapter 12 when Terra and Cloud fought Gabranth. Actually I never even read the opening chapters I just started there. Hmmm I suppose I should go back and read the opening chapters.
Really I'm sad to see the story end but all great stories come to an end.
As I said before congratulations sir, you've wrote an epic story and it ended beautifully... Goodbye Shards of memory. You've been an epic tale
Thank you drake for sharing this story with us. *bows* I do hope to see more from you soon. Your an amazingly talented writer. However I think for now you've earned a bit of a break from writing.
