I liked your story, and you are right, Tate gets a lot of unnescarry(sp? I can't spell this stupid word . . .) hate. So does Takeda for that matter. But anyway, I liked it.

I have to say though, as someone who has nothing but absolute hatred for that steaming pile of shit known as the Mai Hime Manga, believe me when I say it wasn't the Natsuki/Tate pairing that pissed me and everybody else off, it was the stupid Key system which not only left the Himes underhanded, but failed to make any sense. Yeah, I see your Mai/Tate and raise you a Nao/Takeda and a Midori/Parrot. Those and literaly 'bout a billion other things make me want to scream "fuck you Sunrise!" at the top of my lungs, but I digress . . . Keep up the good work!

Amen to your author's note. I love the manga and consider it better than the anime (the Otome manga trumps all). The way I see it, villifying Tate is the only way people can think of to break him up with Mai so she can get with Mikoto. Heaven forbid some one take up the challange to think up a believable reason for them to go their separate ways.

Anyways, great fic. Like said before, everyone is nice and in character. Hope you write more.

Oh, and *Shameless plug* be sure to check out my Mai/Tate fics too!

I agree with every word that you menioned in your intro Author's note. And while I too am a ShizNat fan, I don't understand how people can alter other characters' traits and psyche's to the point of unrecognition (some even alter physical traits - found this out when I was chatting with someone online). It's much disrespect for the original concepts. Should they choose that route, then they should just make it an original story with original characters.

Anyway, lovely story here. I can't wait to read more of your work. Cheers!

Awesome! I haven't read the manga, but it totally works for the anime canon, too. Sweet, IC and funny - I giggled at "...You cook for her?" I hope you'll write more in this fandom.

Also, much *word* to your author's note. Character bashing really sucks.

Beautiful! I'm one of those who appreciate the manga, especially when it comes to Mikoto (much more mature there), and I truly enjoyed this story. It's well written and kind of funny, but the best surprise has been that all the characters are IC. Good job! Would you write more in this fandom? (*puppy eyes* )

Ah characters how I miss you. Thank you for writing something character driven, it makes roaming the site worth it. While I do like Shizuru and Natsuki, reading something that is one well written and two not villifying anyone makes me wish that there was more character driven stories out there. They're so much more satisfying then some porny piece of shit. Thank you

dude thank you for this wonderful little surprise. To find a fic with this pairing anymore is a once and a lifetime event. Keep up the good work and try to churn out more with these two, this world needs more variety
