Rachmaninov: Pianoconcerto no.2 op.18 - Anna Fedorova
that's the piece I was listening when I read this fic. I'm the kind of person who doesnt believe in coincidences so I can only say that it was destiny.
your fic punched me in the gut. then in the face. then in the heart.
i didnt read the lemon because there's no link on your profile, but it does not matter. I'm in joy. Such a heartbreaking, lovely, amazing, bittersweet, cruel, the cruelest fic that I've ever, ever read about this pairing. I will never, ever forget this.
You can pace a story like no other. Your scenes go forth building and building in a crescendo and suddenly the harsh truth of everything is revelead on this made up fairy tale world of Gokudera explodes so beautifully that my heart is still aching.
There is two moments in your story that I cried. The first was when Gokudera, upon seeing Tsuna on the coffing and letting go of the fantasy, did no delude himself with the facts anymore: his Tsuna loved Sasagawa Kyoko, never realized that Gokudera had feelings for him, never made him his right hand man, never listened to him playing the piano... I must admit I cried copiously at this. Like, oh god, this so heartbreaking.
I can totally see now: Gokudera might have wanted to help Tsuna with the kids, but didn't have the self confidence that he could do it (is it why he thought that Yamamoto wouldn't fuck up, because he in truth didn't?); Gokudera was never named the right hand man, Tsuna didn't calm down at his mere presence, he was just a normal guardian (maybe it was Hibari, that's why he was confided the plans or why he was sleeping by Tsuna's office?); I do believe that Gokudera finished his missions so much more quickly than usual, he might even have runned to Tsuna's office first thing after had arrived - this hurts so much in perspective, damn - but Tsuna only smiled, never understood his frantic eyes or prefered to ignore, i don't know...
It kinds of make you want to punch Tsuna a little. Or a lot.
The second time was... well, it was all the scene of Gokudera back in the past. You wrote his arguments with himself wonderfully but here, in this last scene they are superb. It was at the best part of the concert I was listening too, so imagine this poor reader of yours having an heart attack.
Gokudera was so nonchalant at his returning to the past at the outside, but you could see that he was almost a lunatic man on a mission. "(Write the story, Gokudera)" Oh gawd ;A; - I'm crying again. I'm kind of lost too. I don't remember what I was trying to say.
It was the "Hello?"/"Goodbye". I was just. so. strong.
I'm frantically trying to keep this fic in my mind as the one that Gokudera was the fox, the one where he saved his other Gokudera fairytale ending but I can't. Because at this point in time, Shoichi must have already used the time travel thing from the Bovinos, he probably have already kickstarted all this shit, and while Gokudera doesn't know, without Irie his younger self wouldnt win and now all I see is two fucked up Gokuderas and I can't. My little heart absolutely cant take it. So I'll read this as the fic where Gokudera was the hero of his own story and set things right. I need to read it this way, you know?
Let me breath properly now. I've never made such a big review... It was so perfect. One of best fics that I've ever read, if not the best than certainly it is in the top 10. I can see all the work that you put on this, it must have took so much time and patience. You must understand the reader pleasure of finding the golden story amidst all the scavenging and I feel like I have found it in your fic. Needless to say, I'm cloud nine now. And suffering haha
Thank you so much, so much for posting it!

There is no coherency. No words to explain how this makes me feel. God, the last line is so innocuous but hits so hard. I'm honestly not sure whether I would prefer this version of events or the original canon. My heart hurts. Thank you for writing this.

Oh. My. God. This is perfect. In. EVERY. Aspect. I'm, like, dying right now. I just- I have NO words. At all. And the ending. You, my friend, could be a freaking novelist. This story was absolutely BEAUTIFUL, I'm almost crying. I am astounded. Epic work, dude, simply EPIC.

I love this story! It's great and I can't even take how amazing it is. Just the whole flow and how Gokudera keeps changing his story and everything is just perfect. I really loved reading this. Nice work :)

wow...that was beautiful...so...deep and tragic. I think this fanfic has to be the best to describe how Gokudera would've felt when Tsuna died. Wow. just wow

I have no words to describe how amazing I found your story. I was weeping like a child by the end of it. Well done.

I agree with everyone else. I'm just sort of sitting in a stunned silence with tears in my eyes. I never cry at stories, but you've done the impossible. That's just how good this is. I'm not sure if I'll be reading the lemon, though. Nothing against them, it's just that I don't really think it needs one.

Can't be explained in words.
| Mockingjay Rose chapter 1 . 12/22/2011
This is so sad, so deep, and so beautiful.
I love how you wrote Gokudera's character- forever loyal, forever willing to do anything for his boss.
I love you for writing this, even though I will probably be crying myself to sleep. (Yep, I can be an emotional one)

at first i was utterly confused. but then as i progressed through, understanding came, then i learned to love it. and now, it's in my favorites list. good job. this is a good heart-breaking story of gokudera hayato who failed to convey his overflowing love for sawada tsunayoshi, his beloved jyuudaime.
| ZiYu chapter 1 . 11/1/2011
This is absolutely stunning. Everything, from the cadence of the narrative to the story's structure to the striking details of every scene portrayed...and above all, the comfortable warmth of those fairytale events and the strokes of humour that echo their past memories, the way they are cruelly juxtaposed with the despair and anguish and denial and insanity...
Hm. I'm rambling nonsense. But this is a story that just tugs you in and leaves its tracks in your mind, and...it's a wonderful piece. I'm not being coherent at all, but I just wanted to say "thank you for writing this". This is a beautiful fic. )
| Chaotic Memory chapter 1 . 10/4/2011
This fic honestly took my breath away. I'm still mulling the story over in my head.
That ending? Wow.
The structure of the story really hooked me, how it all flowed and the way Gokudera was portayed...
Sorry if this review is incoherent!
