Glad to see you're still interested in this story, I know I am ahha! Love the Saiyajin culture references and think I like the flirting leading up to the relationship much more than the result :) can't wait to see what happens next! It's been a great story, I can't believe you're able to write so well with so much going on in your life! Gifted! C:

I just wanted to say that I read all of your story that you have so far and I love it. There are a few times where you change details such as is Burma dr briefs real dad or adopted one? But other than that I love the story and cant wait for you to finish it. Oh and I love vegeta having a tail, its cute.

Yeah. 2015 critiquing a 2009 story. Take it for what it's worth. I think people are just shocked that Vegeta was strong enough to force Goku into SSJ when neither of them were using ki - and suddenly future father-in-law is fast enough and strong enough to be a surprise. It doesn't matter if Vegeta was toying with him - he could sneeze and hurt someone if he weren't careful. He would never allow someone to embarrass him like that. If you wanted them to build common ground, you don't do that by using strength with Vegeta - if you show enough prowess to surprise him, he answers by one upping you. In your story, he is gregarious. Saiyans aren't prone to socialness (well, they were in one chapter and then they weren't in another). Apparently Bulma's family is very close. USE THAT. Why? Because there is no scaring Vegeta without a kill response. But if you want him to be more civilized and socialized... socialize him with 'how its done on earth.' This whole story is about culture shock - bringing him away from the violence inherent in Saiyans and closer to the squishy, mushy, human, emotional stuff. But, as a Saiyan, he respects a little spine. Bulma is way too insecure and full of fear. Vegeta spent his entire life killing those types. If he wants to emulate her and uses her as an example of how to be an 'earthling,' to fit in, he'd never choose as his 'mentor' someone who would run away from someone teasing her, backing down when she was pushed into a corner, or cowering out of fear after she's decided there's no threat (you don't flirt with someone one day then remember you're terrified with them a day later). She's either strong or weak and you tried to make her both at the same time instead of a gradual change from one to the other and its confusing. I'd say for things to make sense, she can't be afraid - because she's gets confused so often as "Saiyan" in Vegeta's mind (which is why he can relate to her). If she'd slap a Saiyan for calling her a bitch - why the hell would she run away from an exboyfriend teasing her about the size of her tits? She spends most of DBZ declaring how gorgeous she is and yelling at people for acting (in her mind) improperly. She also spends 90% of DB and DBZ off exploring on her own. Obviously daddy trusts her to take care of herself. The whole sword and repo thing is interesting, but way too far fetched in the context of this story. Dr. Briefs should either be a scientist or a baddass... he can't really be both overly well or else there would be no purpose for the other fighters. I mean... a scientist with capabilities to create WMD in the form of a sword that can take out Vegeta so close to SSJ (close enough to force Goku to transform when they're not using ki...) Why the hell would Goku be needed at all, ever? Just have dad come kick the crap out of King Piccalo, Vegeta and Nappa, and Frieza. And if dad hates his little girl being hurt so much - why would he allow a porn star in his house with a exboyfriend who still had the ability to make his daughter feel insecure?

Neat story! Thanks for writing.

I've been waiting from a update from you like forever! This is one of the few dbz fanfics I've reread a lot so do your best and take your time!
| Spellweaver10 chapter 25 . 1/16
Your writing had improved during the last chapters. I couldn't let this fiction, until I had finished it.
I really liked the fact that you gave a mysterius tone to the story with Bulma's past. A thing that I found slighty disappointing is that after all these chapters Vegie and Bulma are not yet a couple or at least admit that they have romantic feelings for each other, but oh well...

Horray! You're back! I'm sorry about all the woes in your life and I hope this new year brings more joy for you. Thank you so much for not abandoning this story, I can't wait to see what you come up with and I look forward to the new chapters!

I just finished re-reading this story, and I have to say this is such an awesome fic! I fall in love with this fic all over again. I'm glad you came back and still love this couple. Hope to read the next chapter soon.
| LVR4Trunks-n-Vegeta chapter 25 . 1/11
This is a great story. I love how you have Vegeta and Bulma trying to figure out each others customs. What happened to Bulma while she was in that institution? Will Vegeta get her to tell him? Are they falling in love with each other without even knowing what is happening? Can't wait for more updates.

So happy your back and I will get to find out how the story ends! Sorry to hear about all of the things that have happened to you while you've been gone. Hope you update again soon!
