Whoa...that was really dark and sad
But it was written so successfully that I cried myself
| Phenoix12 chapter 4 . 11/14/2010
I enjoyed this story; it was a nice combination of love, loss, friendship, and even a joke here and there
I almost laughed at the part about heaven having paper work and bureaucracy.
The ending was simple, short and sweet. A good ending for the story.
I’ll give this story a 7/10 on my grading scale.

Well, I liked it honestly. Though it starts off dark and a little fumbled- the shock right after the truck hits was good - you cinched it nicely at the end I believe which really pulled me in.
Perhaps a little heavy for the thoughts despite Konata's acting, but that could just as well be how determined she is to put Tsukasa's emotional state before her own heartbreak of loosing Kagami. She can be a deep character and I can respect that for you trying to show that side. Even a lighter slice-of-life genre understandably gets turbulent and controversial when presented with something that isn't a day to day occurance for which it is built up around. This fair exploration proves fanfiction is a means to take it that one step further or off to the side.

Sir, you have done an excellant job with this. Taking something as bright as Lucky Star and turning it into such a depressing shortfic is quite an achievement.
My only complaint about it would be that it was somewhat TOO short; the idea could have been expanded and played out more, especially with some of the more minor characters like Ayano and Misao.
But as it stands, a very worthwhile and thought-provoking read.

This story was very enriching to read. It felt very philosophical and emotional. I really enjoyed reading it and I'm very glad I did. Seriously, a congradulations to you, the story just flowed off the page and into my heart.
| Scraggles chapter 4 . 7/11/2009
This made me cry . . in a good way, if that's possible. It's dark, yet sweet. Emotions like that hard to find in most things Lucky Star. In short, I love it. It sort of reminds me of the brother I lost. I guess he was like a twin, since we were a year apart. He died before I was born, so yeah, not exactly how Kagamin died, but I still can't help feeling like Tsukasa, wondering what would have happened if he lived.

The last chapter seemed a bit off, I was expecting some dating or more romantic expression between Konata and Tsukasa. It's great that Kanata and Kagami were there for the graduation but be very careful using anime spoilers like you did with that Ga Rei Zero line, you might have spoiled it for somebody.
The last chapter really seem misplaced though, it's technically a good ending but you skipped over the entire relationship development with Konata and Tsukasa so I can't really cheer for the couple. They only seem connected by a tragedy rather than each other. I really loved how each chapter was small in size, it made it easy to read. Over all, decent story with its strength in style and feeling but a flawed ending chapter.
| StaminaRose chapter 2 . 4/21/2009
ah... im sorry. i tried i really did, and i even made it to the end of chapter 2. but honestly, it has struck me that i am unable to read even the best written sad stories in the Lucky Star universe. I guess its cause she show itself is very bubbly and cute that this kind of tragedy type situation just doesnt fit in with it. its like if in the middle of Bambi suddenly Al Capone burst in and started negotiating with Thumper for the rights to half the forest. you could write it better than anything has ever been written, but it still wouldnt work at all.
Honestly i wonder at the liklihood of a truck going a significant speed anywhere around their hometown. let alone anyone being able to miss something like that at a crossing.
| Kingpin chapter 4 . 4/14/2009
Wow this got me really bummed.
I really like how this played out though, and wanted to give you praise. Considering Lucky Star is so fluffy, you managed to handle this topic with realism and it works nicely with the mood. I also thought Konata's dialog fit her to a tee.
The newscast at the end got me thinking though. Had the Hiiragi family sued the trucking company perhaps some later suffering could have been avoided. I'm not sure, on a personal level, if I would be celebrating the system rather than internalizing the ordeal and trying to support the other suffering families at that point.
This shouldn't be my soapbox though. Job well done for you! And In My Life is a beautiful song. Nice choice there.
| bbbvccvt chapter 1 . 4/10/2009
this was a good story over all but the first chapter, where kagami got hit, i actually felt a jolt in my body lol, i was like " oh shit..." .
but good story, good story, i liked it :D
| RezleVettems chapter 3 . 4/6/2009
Good chapter but it seems like it is getting very philosophical and questioning though a funeral does tend to do that to people. You made a very good depiction of a pre-funeral scene at the house but I dislike seeing Konata taking this entire event so lightly, you'd think she'd be more depressed than that or at least crying when she's alone so it seems like she's suffering as well.
And who comes to a pre-funeral event drunk? I'm not complaining, just wondering to myself-I can imagining someone doing that. But I don't think Yui was close enough to Kagami to be so down as to drink. Good chapter and a date might be the right thing to help Tsukasa cheer up. Maybe Kagami haunting somebody.

After reading this through, I shall now proceed to eat my own words. *Nomnomnom*
The story really turned out to be great and not over-dramatized like I predicted. It has a really natural flow to it like it was happening in real life. The dialogue was great and the way you use all of the characters is spot on too. You even through in some interesting text about death and religion as a whole. The only thing I'd recommend is toning down some of the English References. The Star Wars thing was cool, but a little specific.

I liked this chapter too, though not too fond of Tsukasa cussing everything seemed pretty good. People usually like a story exactly like the anime/manga but I perceive your story as a "what if" and it's really good. But Konata referencing anime compared to the loss of a sister is a bit much-probably the only part I would take out of the story. The fact that you show Kanata and Kagami in Heaven is great and I'm hoping you show a lot more of them. It makes the story a bit lighter which is good, try to find a balance in that.
| Chiyo And Osaka Fan chapter 2 . 3/27/2009
Another really great chapter and the ending was great for this one and you really have characters spot on!
| RezleVettems chapter 1 . 3/23/2009
Your story was well written and your descriptions were perfect. Though some may be a bit uncomfortable with the cursing it is realistic though not for the Lucky Star setting. The nurse slapping was a bit much but that's really my only issue.
I hope Konata is able to relate the death of her mother to Tsukasa's loss but a relationship but around a death may not be the best kind, if anything the relationship should be purely for emotional support and temporary. But the writing was really top notch and hopefully this fic won't be too long.
