I love it! Before reading this, I hadn't realized how messed up Kairi's year would've been. *sigh* poor girl. I guess this trio really has gone through a lot. Great story!

Until next time~ Peace.

I LOVE IT BECAUSE IT'S SO HONEST!

This was wonderful. I love it when Kairi's portrayed as more than a helpless sissy. And the year Sora was asleep has always captivated me.

Wow. This is the side of Kairi that you know is there, but you never really see. You brought it out beautifully. My fav line - 'She hates them today because its the only way she'll be able to love them tomorrow.' There was so much power in that one line, and it was the perfect way to end the story. Kudos

Nice story! You really know how to get inside some one's head and show their emotions and thoughts.

I have a suggestion: Make a story like this, but in Riku's or Sora's PoV.

Keep up the great work!

I really liked this. I can't find the words exactly to explain in specifics, but... yeah, it's like I get it. Thanks for writing something good.

I saw that pic too. I gushed when I saw Kairi in the same cinematic cutscene as Aqua and Mickey. Plus Greek-i-fied Zack.

Yeah, this one was dark and angsty, but if that was Kairi's year she sure as well had to have been harbouring some measure of spite towards her two best friends for indirectly putting her through it.

Four days from finals? I've already gone through two of five. One's on Saturday too, which really sucks.

Zack Fair is also going to be in BBS. :D I think I just died and went to heaven.

So wonderful. Your second-to-last paragraph was just GOLD. I'm inspired to write angsty Kairi now. People who label her 'annoying' never stop to think that the real battles aren't won on the field. Look at people like Cloud Strife, like Leon, like Auron. They're strong, sure, but their psyches? Not so much. And that's what matters.

I loved the idea of Kairi's date (in a 'good plot' way, not in a 'let's rape Kairi!' way XD). What would happen when Sora discovered it? What would happen when Riku did?

This story spawns plot bunnies like Don Imus spawns flamers. In a good way. I loved it.

Plenty of angst, yes... but very well written! I can't wait for Birth by Sleep, either. Thanks for the post; good luck on finals.

I actually feel sorry for Kairi in this. Poor girl missing out on all of the adventures. Maybe she'll have some adventures in BbS? Too bad she won't remember them. XD

Yuck... college finals. I finished mine today thank the lord. Good luck on them! :)

Cool~!

Yeah, this is an angsty one. A little short too. But you portrayed how Kairi felt during the last year pretty well. Especially the part where people thought she was crazy when she talked about Sora. o_o

Anyways, good job! Good luck with your finals!
