| Tonnerre chapter 9 . 5/13
Well damn that was incredible. Akio is up to his old tricks and I wonder, does he even know what he's doing anymore? Juri still can't see that Shiori is toxic and Kozue continues to drag Miki down. I think one of the key theme here is letting go of toxic relationships and not longing for the past when it's long since dead and gone. Otherwise, we keep ending up in the same song and dance.

I am so glad you returned to this story, it's like slipping into an old comfortable sundress, reading it again. Comfy and fun.

cant remember if i already read chapter 9 or not because i cant even remember the 8th one even though i read it for sure last summer. i read both stories/novels twice because i liked them a lot (maybe i should do it again because my memory is shit obviously). anyways... new chapter! yay! it would be nice if you continued. someday.

So glad to see you're continuing this fic! I honestly followed with zero hope of being able to see the end of your incredible world here. Then, on but a simple day, like so many others, wondrous news! sharnii has returned!
A great chapter too! I feel so bad for Juri and Miki, they're being pulled right back in to the pain surrounding Shiori and Kozue from the series. I think you bridged the gap nicely for that from the anime, though. I was skeptical about Juri, since the show puts so much emphasis on her moving on from Shiori with her new locket and jokes about Utena's picture. But by drawing them all in with hopes of rescue (not their original feelings as seen in the anime) I can believe once they are back in that situation, moments of weakness occur.
Anthy's final moment of clarity, one that none of the others may have even realized, even Utena (at least to the same degree and deep understanding of their allies' hearts that Anthy has), of miscalculation was wonderful. Moves and counter-moves between here and her brother. So similar but completely different than Roses Grow.
Can't wait for more!
| Sierra Arcanum chapter 9 . 1/11
First of all, I want to thank you for the amazing stories! I've read Roses Grow before and then stumbled upon it's sequel, Thorns Wither.
Both stories are amazing, and the way you portray the characters is also wonderful! This is some sort of closure for me, I'm so sad that I've finished SKU and there was nothing left for me... But that's why I love your fics!
You really made my year, I am in love with your writing!
Good luck with the trilogy (if you ever plan to finish it), and even if you can't, I still thank you for the great experience it has been so far.
- My best wishes, Sierra Arcanum.

Great Chapter! I love how strongly you portrayed Utena. This chapter was so suspenseful, can't wait for the next update. Thank You. Sharnii
| icancervive chapter 9 . 1/10
hah! new chapter! pleaeeeeeese finish this story. i love your writing, it's so inherent to the characters, the way you write them captures them perfectly, pushing beyond but still managing to grip their core emotions and thoughts; straying, journeying, but still staying much too close to home. it's pleasingly balanced and paced. my only issue is that I'd like to time jump to your next update, because I have to reread everything to "get to that place" in my head and in my heart, not that I'm complaining, coz i dont mind rereading something this beautiful...that time jump craving though

Sharnii! I can't believe it's been so long since you last updated, it really hasn't felt like it's been nearly 2 years! I actually went back to the beginning of the story and read it through, to really savor the new chapter (also to catch up on what I've forgotten, haha).
I'm so excited to find out where this is going.
It was a wonderful chapter. I realized how much I missed your writing and how much more I've fallen for these characters because of you. You never fail to deliver!
Happy new year! Here's to another one. D

One thing I didn't comment on in the PM is my love for your Tokiko. Her character is left purposely sparse in the TV series, such that she could be either good, bad or both. You've made her a very exciting femme-fatale figure here in TW, and I'd love to see more of her down the road.
Plus, much love for the cliffhanger at the end *heart*

These two stories are amazing, and I now accept them as canon follow ups to the series. I don't know if you will ever update this again, but it's okay if you don't. While I would love to see the conclusion, I can imagine one for myself.
Heh, I will just assume that Anthy and Utena save the day and each other with just the right amount of conflict and angst in the process, Akio stops being a meddling bastard, Juri forgets about that heartless bitch Shiori, Miki either rescues Kozue or moves on, and they all live happily ever after, especially Utena and Anthy, who will have found a solution to Utena's... unique... performance issues and gone on the best honeymoon ever, hehe.
Thanks for writing such awesome stuff. It's been a blast! :D
