| Kreyana chapter 2 . 9/28/2012
Too bad you didn't include the return to the village. This was very unique. But, I have to say that, while there was definitely adventure, I didn't see much hibt to the romance inclusion. Leon & Cloud holding hands is about the only thing that catches. Maybe a little more, very hidden in all else.
At any rate, it was a great use of imagination. You should do more RiSo stories.

This was a really good story, but still sounds open. Enjoyed reading!

applause, applause! Very entertaining, I love the fairy-tale aspect of this!
| Dan-Dan x chapter 2 . 9/1/2010
Woow! A perfect little fairytale in itself! Your Sorikus are always adorable! I felt for Riku, poor soul. I loved every minute of this!
| Tiggerz16 chapter 2 . 7/16/2010
This was so good. It was different from a lot of other stories and I actually felt like I was right there watching everything happen.

Utterly disturbing; giving the essence of what nightmares are made of to the core. Beautiful, and very strong. Loved it!

I have to say, when I first started I figured some cliche soriku one shot but as I read, wow! It was like experiencing an epic fairy tale with enough morbid scene to make the Grimm Brothers happy. I definitely loved Sora's role in this, the bushy tailed little protagonist that defeats the darkness despite the odds, not with brte power but with heart! which I guess is the theme of Kingdom Hearts when you think about it o-o; But loved loved loved how you portrayed Sora I totally expected some fluffy soriku or something like a kiss at the end, but I definitely loved this all the same! So maybe I should just summarize this into somthing more coherent-Freaking awesome (and long lol) one shot!

I love how you translated the dream sequence from the cartoon. Poor Sora, he almost fell apart a time or so ... but I must say I love Anti-Sora, and your incorporation of him in makes me smile very, very much X3
Sorry for such a delay between reviews - I ended up with no internet for a week.

I never even knew about Halloween is a Grinching Night until I found this, but I must admit I love your portrayal more (though that may just be because a kid's movie isn't allowed to flesh out non-PG aspects, and you write them so richly). They really fit into their roles, except the Grinch was considerably more able to be made a fool then Maleficent. And, of course, Max couldn't talk like Riku can.
Ya know, I don't know many people who can turn a half-hour holiday special into a story that's 39 pages with the first half alone - that's amazing talent, and descriptions so lifelike you TASTE it. It's LONG, so I feel bad, since it took me a few days to even finish reading the first chapter, but then it's made of so many treats for the imagination that I can't bring myself to be at all annoyed it takes a while to read.
... Semi-interesting side note thing is that just the day before I found this I was thinking how you had written, starred, and abused most of our favorite characters except for Sora (Water was Riku, Unfamiliar was Roxas, Neg0Axel, MaHDemyx). Now just get a story around Zexion, and the list is almost complete! Insanely long-winded review complete, sorry!

OH NIGHTMARES. OH MAN. OH I'M SO GLAD IT'S STILL DAYTIME. I'M SERIOUSLY GOING TO NEED TO GO FILL MY BRAIN WITH HAPPY THINGS FOR THE REST OF THE DAY SO THAT I DON'T HAVE ANY NIGHTMARES. GUH I'M SO SCARED!
Wow, OK, so Maleficent would have had me at the zombies. I WOULD HAVE LAID DOWN AND GIVEN UP RIGHT THERE. Ugh. (I can't do zombies, I just can't.) And then the SHADOW. OMG THE SHADOW. IT FOLLOWED HIM FROM ONE NIGHTMARE TO ANOTHER WITH HURTINGS AND PAIN AND AUGH! The city one, when it popped out of his creepy shadows on either side? MADE ME WANT TO DIE. Hello, Sora getting into scary predicaments that aren't even HIS! Yay for getting to live through the scary worlds made for OTHER ppl in the game. WITHOUT WEAPONS OR THE ABILITY TO RUN UP BUILDINGS. And stuff. And I'm freaked out.
There is NO. WAY. I'd have kept going. And OH. HOLY. FUCK. When you brought in the crib with the baby, I almost freaked tthe fuck out, because I didn't know the baby was going to be just a BABY, and just CRY. And I was so strung out by this point that I was ready to scream just because it was a BABY, therefore it was like, in my mind it had already turned into some Chucky-doll thing and started laughing and screaming and attacking Sora. My mind was...IS...still reeling from all the nightmares.
OH I WAS SO RELIEVED WHEN HE GOT OUT OF THE NIGHTMARE AND MALEFICENT HADN'T GOTTEN TO THE VILLAGE AND THE SUN WAS COMING UP. OH GODS I WAS SO RELIEVED. And RIKU! BRave boy, finally! Taking a stand! But of course, that would be the time to, if ever, because he was right, she really couldn't spare the time to coerce him at that point. OMG YES. UGH SUCH RELIEF. SORA ESCAPING WITH RIKU BACK TO THE TOWN WHERE NO ONE DIED. *sigh*
But ohh, when she comes back...oh man. I hope Sora and Riku are all grown up and MARRIED or something by then (*giggles and grins*) and Sora will probably go up to meet her like the fucking amazing martyr he is, and he'll defend the whole town again, because he's probably the most un-scare-able guy ALIVE now. I mean, after getting through that, sure, she'll think of worse, but he's the only one besides maybe Riku who can be even prepared for the fear, and he's the ONLY one who has fought her and won and therefore KNOWS that he can win and survive. I think they'll be OK, as long as he's there to protect the town...and I guess they'll have to figure something out to defend against her in the future. YEESH. I wish she'd just DIE though. I was hoping it was close enough to dawn that, without a slave to pull her, she'd not make it back in time. DIE EVIL BITCH. Guh.
Man...that. Was. Scary. Trying to get the heart rate back to normal here...trying to daydream about Riku and Sora, and Sora helping Riku recover from all that darkness, and them being all bonded so nicely from shared terrors. And then love and kissus and passions and nyahh, OK, I'm grinning again. Silly me. XD
Oops, I looked at the end of the story again. *back to scared* O.o Whew, you're amazing. You'r just...UNGH. AMAZING. You can write ANYTHING. Which is awesome. I AM SO BLESSED AND FORTUNATE TO KNOW YOU! A;SDLFKJKLDFS SISTER DEAR! ONLY YOU COULD WRITE SOMETHING SO SCARY YET WONDERFUL AND ENTHRALLING!
I'm still gonna go fill my head with happy, though. Maybe re-read MaH AGAIN again. Lawl, or some manga. I've been behind on my yaoi manga lately...OH GUESS WHAT! It's Miyamoto Kano's birthday! TODAY! (And I found out where I knew her from and then realized I had not read NEARLY enough of her stuff, so I'm enjoying LOTS MORE OF IT NOW.)
OK. And that's not review material, so I'll shut up. XD
I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU SO HARD!

SQUEAL. OF. FEAR.
(Baww, fuck, took me fucking long enough to get to this! *sobemoemo* )
Abusing Sora for a change, I see? LMAO, oh dear. I just...keep adding more and more injuries onto him in my mind. He's starting to look...pretty awful. DX Poor thing. And Riku. OMG POOR RIKU. You are just...sadistic all over the place for this one huh?
OH. MAN. You had me from GO, with bein scared. THE WIND. OMG THE WIND. THE SMELL! You made me realize how much mentioning SMELL can do for description, because I imagined that smell and it was like FOREBODING OMG AND SICK CREEPY FEELINGS. WOW. And everyone's alarm and the TENSENESS. NYUHH, MY SPINE IS CRAWLING. And...just...EVERYTHING. I was so, OMG WHAT IS GOING ONN! And then Sora got knocked over and I was like OMG HE'S DEAD...WAIT. HE CAN'T BE DEAD. OMG HE'S HURT BAADD! WOW.
And his encounter with Riku! Oh man, I was worried when the carriage flipped, I was afraid Riku was gonna be crushed...and he almost was I guess. OMG SO SAD! Riku asking if Maleficent was letting him die! If Sora was an angel! Oh that poor thing, I feel so terrible for him! And how he tried to warn Sora away, and then thought Sora was killed! Ugh, poor Riku.
But wow, I'm just...so in awe of Sora right now, his bravery and not giving up. SO SORA! And so wonderful. :D :D But ohh ohh oh I don't think I'd tempt Maleficent like that. Ugh. I have such a WEAKNESS against nightmares...and she's...UGH. She's SCARY. Like, SERIOUS SCARY. There at the end! OMG. YIKES. AND WHY? WHY THE TOP OF THE CARRIAGE? PLEASE DON'T TELL ME SHE'S JUST GONNA KEEP ROLLING MERRILY DOWN THE MOUNTAIN WITH HIM ON TOP, THROWING NIGHTMARES AT HIM ON A LITTLE ROAD TRIP OF CREEPINESS! GAH THAT WOULD DESTROY ALL HOPE! SHE'D GET TO THE TOWN! *freaks out*
OH I'm so glad I'm not reading this at NIGHT. I don't need to be scared like this at NIGHT. Ugh. No nightmares, plz. BAWW YOU ARE SUCH A GENIUS OF EVERYTHING MY DEAR! HOW CAN YOU WRITE SCARY STUFF SO WELL? YOU ARE AMAZING.
Gah, I have to keep reading now, even if I HAVE forgotten some of the things I wanted to say. (You have to admit, it's pretty long...hard to remember everything.) XD GAH PLEASE DON'T KILL ME WITH SCARY LEVELS IN THE SECOND HALF. *CLINGS FEARFULLY IN A DEATH GRIP HUG*

I love this so 3
| Tekko chapter 2 . 6/7/2009
...Oh wow. /Wow./ This wasn't anything like I was expecting it to be and I have to say, I wasn't disappointed. I find action/fight sections difficult to pull off but this had me at the edge of my seat! This had heart-wrenching, gut-churning, nail-biting action and made a melting pot of emotion run through me. Very few errors, as well (all of which I noticed being with spacing).
I would love to see more from this timeline (from Riku getting settled to Maleficent's next strike) myself. Bravo to infinity - simply amazing.
| Faye Silo chapter 2 . 6/4/2009
It took me forever to read this but i truly enjoyed every word of it. THe way described everyscenewas a mazing and you never lacked in the visuals. I loved how you brought the nightmares to life in my head, ignited them and set them free to roam. It shocked me how long the story was and I'm glad you had the heart to finish it. I'm sure it was difficult and I give you props. Please continue writing.
