I think my comment is already long overdue since this fic ended in 2009 and today's 2018 so that's like 11 years gap? I am not sure xD But I will still say it, alright? Your story is so damn good! Probably the best ByaRuki fanfiction I've ever read! From start to finish it's a beautiful package and this being my favorite ship as well, just can't get enough of them. I love every single chapter. Thanks for bringing it to life XD

I've never read a ByaRuki ff but I'm willing. I love the way you write! Oh my god, I cannot wait. From the reviews I've read (SPOILERS DOWN BELOW) I've gotten a really good vibe. I'll review as I go along, Author-san!

Ah, my emotions are on edge and I don't know how to start typing out my review... It was all so intense, so deep. I cannot help feeling an existential vacuum *cries disconsolately*
You have written something very special and full of meanings, this story is not about a simple but a very complex romance in which a high amount of emotional and moral burdens have weighted down the characters. I have to recognize your merit and the value of your work; I do believe you have talent and much more creativity :)
First off, because there must be something to start off with, I want to point out the psychological aspects in the story since you did not take the romance thing easy but you developed it to a large extent, unfolding all a weave of emotional conflicts, moral and social prejudices, taboos and a great deal of eroticism hovering above and along the plot. To Win You Back is a love story brimful with such a sensuality that is characteristic of the genre that it addresses: an illicit romance born in the restrained desires of two people who know that they cannot be together but still are incapable to dismiss what they feel. Aw, your byaruki is so passionate *heart* I have spent breathless days reading this ff and now I am like I cannot get over it is finished *sniff*
As I said, I dim your work as a very deep one considering it is only a fanfiction due to the themes that you risked to deal with. Although we are just talking about a manga couple, the tone of the story makes you look at it seriously given the level of emotional complexity that the characters have reached and the large process of evolving that they were put in through. No doubt, this is the strong point of TWYB; the characters went through many circumstances that made them shatter bit by bit until they found themselves nude and faced with their own feelings; feelings that were strange in the beginning, scaring and in the middle and stronger enough to overcome in the end. What I liked the most about Byakuya and Rukia is that they have accepted they loved each other even when that love meant a negative thing to them, and the maturity they have shown at assuming that their feelings were not to be an easy task to affront. Both characters have acted consequently and based on the principles of duty, the most marked feature they have in their personalities. There were some moments of ooc but these have not affected the plot, on the contrary, like I mentioned on other review, may the characters have needed this oocness to stand in situations that would help them fight their inner battles.
A clandestine romance adds a lot of spice to the meal, the first chapters have been delicious due to the secret nature of the relationship: all runs at the hostel’s house, in a little bedroom, and then the suggestive attraction between the handsome teacher and the timid student that blows it all at full blast. I mean, I was drooling throughout the whole story xD Your managing of the scenarios was awesome as well, since it is one of the strong points in your writing and you get to drag the reader into the atmosphere that you have created and drown it with a flood of images that are overwhelming and astonishingly enticing. I still have in mind the entire chapter of the funfair with the merry-go-round and the one of the dance in the school; these were magical chapters that I recall somewhat nostalgically. You have a special ability to gnaw at a reader’s heart like me with such sensible images.
I would like to quote a lot of scenes and lines that have taken me to the seventh heaven there and back; the lemons left me speechless, breathless, mindless! And not because of the smuttiness itself, but for the romantic and sooth, soft-hearted way to tell it. I will read TWYB over and over again to fall for this pairing on and on and on… Because you have for sure accomplished your goal: making people to fall for Byakuya x Rukia *heart*
Bleach has ended and it was bullshit. Renruki is cannon and it was bullshit. I prefer to illusion myself with ffs, nobody will set me off from byaruki shipping mood.
Thank you very much for this story, do believe me that I would like to say a lot of things more about it but I cannot get the words out, perhaps I should have had to wait some days ahead to comment on but just no, I really wanted to tell you how much I loved it. Really, really thanks :)
I hope you can finish Demons and Emperor, I would love to read those stories but I do not know if you are still writing and if you will be able to complete them. Anyway, it is a fact that I will still be hovering over your profile, enjoying the beautiful byaruki fanfictions that you have given to the fandom. Cheers!

I am really amazed at the turn the story has taken, I mean, what I least expected was that Hisana jumped into action D: When I first read her coming out I turned some disappointed because she's not a character which I'm fond of and I see her as an obstacle to the relationship between Byakuya and Rukia. We already know that she's dead but... as you said on one line up, it's Rukia who is with him now.
I'm sharing a quote from a byaruki one-shot that has been writen in spanish and which explains perfectly this situation: "I am the one here now, I am the one who needs you. It's been fourty years without her but it's been fourty years with me as well." (Rukia to Byakuya) And that is how it is indeed, Hisana has long passed by and Byakuya is not a man who gets stuck on the past, he has a lot of responsabilities and the weight of his social status on his shoulders. But most importantly, he has lived a long time with Rukia and you can easily think that she has taken over the place in his heart that was ocuppied by Hisana before. Because, even if it sounds painful to say it, I cannot believe that Byakuya still loves Hisana after all the time that has gone by since her death and even more when the time that he has spent with her has been so short in comparison to the long decades that he has lived along with Rukia :/ I think she didn't deserve him because she didn't love him back *angry mood* Or at least she didn't love him back the same way he did. Rukia so deserves him much more than Hisana!
Okay, turning back to the story, an encounter face to face between the two sisters is just awesome, due to now it is a matter of fight for love, and if you may find it somewhat cheesy it's not like that because the characters must face their sorrowful past and overcome it to go ahead; Byakuya and Rukia, mainly Byakuya, need to overcome Hisana's shadow to gain peace in their hearts and move forward.
All the Arrancar issue has been cleverly crafted as well, it feels like reading the pages of the manga. Even though, I'm missing the horny and slutty byaruki scenes xD Lol
Thank you very much for replying to my reviews, I feel so honored *goes Rukia's blushing mood*

Omg, I can't stop laughing! My cheeks must be as red as Rukia's XDXD Lol. True, this fanfic, besides being a byaruki story, is a big monument to Isshin Kurosaki :D Lol! Such a pervert man, all his scenes make me double up with laughter. Poor Byakuya, "Date?" XDXDXD Sorry, this review is such an icoherence but I'm all cracked up... xD
