| AceSoleil chapter 45 . 6/10/2014
I just stumbled upon this fic a few days ago and started working my way through it. Can't believe I'd missed it up until now, it's so well written that I caught myself crying from time to time. This is probably the best Kanji/Naoto fic I've ever read because there was never a moment that they felt out of character. I hopeto see it finished one day, but even as it is now I think it was totally worth the read.

So is this fic dead? I've had this followed for months now, but damn, it's like this story has tripped right before the finish line. I hope this isn't the case, because this has been one of my favorite fanfictions, definitely my top for Persona, and it would be a crime to stop it so close to completion.

I'm thoroughly enjoying this :) at first i thought you wrote Naoto a little too aggressive and defensive. But after a while i warmed to it :) Best fanfic i have read in ages and looking forward to the next one :O

| FezzikTheMighty chapter 45 . 1/27/2014
so i waited until i caught up with this story and with out a doubt this is the best i have ever read. It is so beautifully done the parts you added fit together perfectly with the real story. All i can do know is be extremely sad that i no longer have a buffer 40 chapters to take up my downtime and must wait for more. Best story i have read on fanfiction

I'm pretty sure this was the story that sparked my interest in this couple, and this is such a great fic! I feel like the characterization is spot-on, and Naoto's and Kanji's relationship is portrayed really realistically. I love Naoto's interlude chapters, and this one was no exception!

Whoa, this story is amazing! Just spent the last three days reading it, and it's so well written! You have the characters down perfectly, and their emotional situations. Best fanfiction I've read in ages! :)
| Patcheresu chapter 43 . 9/6/2013
Not only have you, at this chapter, successfully written a well paced and grandoise Kanji/Naoto fic. Not only have you written a real romance. Not light fluff, not star crossed visions, none of that. You took ideas from both P4 and P4-Anime and made a beautifully done novelization of Persona 4. It's nothing like the flavor of Fairly English Story, but its absolutely and completely what I'd want, expect, and admire. I'm racking my brain trying to think of a problem.
Uh...the fight scenes aren't that good and for once, Souji isn't the Perfect Run Souji. Kudos for using the manga name even when the canon one was revealed. Even better, your personality for Souji is actually the canon P4A one, with a little overbearingness. You managed to even handle Social Links well.
This. This is what a good novelization is capable off. Sometime, as a personal request, just reread parts of this story and compare it to other reworkings of the original story, even if its only Kanji's scenes. I just can't think of words to describe this fanfiction. And unless there are minor canon deviations that are put right back on track I didn't notice, or care to notice, this gets a solid recommendation from me and I don't read Romance novels.
| Lena chapter 45 . 9/2/2013
This thing is so amaizing I didn't have a proper sleep for last week - read it till I can't keep my eyes open. All characters are so real and your own vision of the story got me hooked. And now I feel so empty that there is no chapters left to read.
Well, anyway, thank you very much for all the time you spent and efforts you made to write the fic. You are very talanted and I've already read several other stories of yours, so I gonna follow you up. Keep it up!)
| Lady Cheshire chapter 45 . 8/20/2013
This chapter was right up my alley - visceral, piecemeal, and just the right amount of convoluted. It really has the strong feeling of coming toe to toe with a god. It's all very unnerving and really crowns the last chapter nicely. Again, seeing how Naoto tries to piece her relationship with Kanji into the team dynamic is so fascinating, it's almost like she's always observing the buzz of her teammates but it's Kanji (and to a different degree, Souji) that draws her into the fray.
Dahhh, this is so good. Apologies for the delayed feedback!
| Lady Cheshire chapter 44 . 8/20/2013
It's interesting to see Kanji and Naoto try and navigate their relationship into the team dynamic, especially under the intense environment before the showdown with Izanami. What I love about this story is that maddening crescendo - Kanji or Naoto, but really both of them, act in a way that's maddening and endearing to the reader, but you write their learning process as it unfolds, not all at once. So when Kanji finally realizes that both he and Naoto are scared, it's just that much more rewarding for me as a reader to say 'YES, YOU JACKASSES!' It's nice to see the characters sort of embrace that vulnerability too (Naoto asking Kanji to stay).
I just have to say, though. . . Margaret, you sexy beast!
| BonusParts chapter 45 . 8/20/2013
This is a really interesting way to bring in the events of Arena (I assume that's what this is; I only borrowed Arena for a night) without damaging or counteracting the structure of the main story. I like the way the characters are coming back together after the Big Fight, too; it's almost like they're finding themselves again. Without Souji's direct influence, which I always thought was important for the group as a whole.
Usually, these Interlude chapters focus on Naoto more or less alone, trying to sort stuff out, but it's great to see her take the leadership role. It's very fitting, too, for her personality, especially noting how far she's come: trusting the others, balancing their input. She's really grown up!
Really nice work all through this one. Even the transition moments from the deaths to each character's reappearance read very smoothly, no mean feat. In fact, it might be the smoothest example I've seen of this sort of narrative convention, yet. It's not a small or short development, bridging the events of multiple games into your own retelling, but it works.
