|Reviews for Never Too Late|
| Read at your own risk chapter 1 . 5/30
Natsume seems like a straight-up homophobe.
The thing about his dad, though, is that if he's a druggie who doesn't have an ounce of love for his child and wife, he isn't going to marry someone 'to take responsibility' and get disowned by his wealthy family. People like that just leave or run off or continue life as if nothing happened.

Cool. I love it! I was never good in
one-shot where the heroine narrates.
I mean, gahd you portrayed the story
in undeniably beautiful words! ))))
OA? No way! I'm acting like this because
you are so cool. Hwahaha!
Make more of like this ;D

You made me: like that in your story. It's really great and awesome. I'm hoping for a sequel and perhaps it'll be a series too.

I love the part where you portray his paranoid personality disorder. It's so Natsume and I can see him behaving that way. The ending, however, leaves me feeling a little disheartened. It sounded rushed.
Nevertheless, it's still good.
Voting has started, BTW, please help in spreading the word. Thanks.

I like this story, Natsume ended trusting Mikan a bit, I guess. I think you were the first in the DOMN, right?
If I could, I would've rated this ten-billion stars. :D

waw. uhm. i was really absorbed in this one-shot.
really, i think it's cuz i take things too seriously because i think about things deeply. (people get mad at me for giving serious answers and think i'm mad at them when i'm just thinking about how other people would feel about their questions/statement whatever. whoops, sorry. rant. xD]
i guess i get really absorbed because... i was thinking relaly hard about how natsume was feeling. how people who have that kind of disorder feel.
really, yu did great portraying natsume. :)
and i like how mikan isn't annoying in here. xD
waw. i'm like really thinkin' now.
thanks for givin' me stuff to think about! [disorders, that is x]
i'm glad i found this oneshot thru janique on fb x]]
i really liked this oneshot :)
i have trust issues too, NOT THE DISORDER XD just from an incident that happened~ i can totally relate to how natsume feels. :3
so yeah. it was a nice oneshot.

ANNABEL, I AM PROUD OF YOU, DARLING! MY REVIEW SUCKS; I’M REALLY SORRY. I WROTE MY THOUGHTS DOWN AND IT’S SCATTERED. FORGIVE ME! I DONT WANT YOUR PLUSHIES TO HAUNT ME!
B-O-O-O TO NATTY’S DAD! HE’S SO MEAN! HOW COULD HE SAY THAT ABOUT NATTY?
OMG, AT SEVEN HE KNEW THOSE WORDS? THAT'S SAD. :c
HOW COULD YOU DO THIS, ANNABEL? WHY DO YOU TORTURE POOR NATTY?
UH, YEAH NATTY. THE PROFESSIONAL PYSHCHIATRIST(sp?) WHO HAS A DEGREE IS TOTALLY WRONG. EYE ROLL.
"GRAY MATTER"? WHY IS IT GRAY?
RAWR. IMMA KILL NATTY. I LURV STRAWBERRY! PSHT, YEAH, HE D-O-E-S HAVE MENTAL ISSUES. :c
OH MY. NATTY IS TOTALLY DEFINATELY JEOLOUS OF RUKA AT THE FLASHBACK PART.
HE CAN HOLD A FAKE FRIENDSHIP FOR EIGHT MONTHS? WTF?
WTF? RUKA IS HORRIBLE FOR DOING THAT TO MIKAN. WHY DID HOTARU EVEN AGREE?
YAY! MIKAN IS TRYING!
MAN, I FEEL SORRY FOR MIKNA. ESPICALLY THE PART WHERE SHE KNOWS NATTY LIED TO HER ABOUT FAV ICE CREAM FLAVOR. SHE'S GETTING HITS ONE AFTER ANOTHER. YOU REALLY MADE THIS PART...REAL.
LOL, YOU USED THE “DENIAL” PUN! WOW, ANNABEL. :D
FINALLY, NAATY REALIZES HE’S BEING AN IDIOT.
AWW. I WAS SO….TOUCHED. IFELT AS IF I WAS READING A STORY FROM A BOOK. IT WAS THAT WELL DONE. AMAZING JOB. THIS TOTALLY BLEW ME AWAY. YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY, 100% WIN. LIKE, I’M SERIOUSLY IMPRESSED.
JUST CURIOUS: WHY DID THE HAVE THE CAKE? WAS IT REALLY TO GET NATTY TO DO SOMETHING DIRTY FOR THEM?
ALSO: WHATEVER HAPPENED TO HOTARU; I’M SORTA ANGRY AT HER RIGHT NOW.

I felt so touched because of this. Natsume is obviously a teensy bit OOC, though I think even because of his sickness, you still managed to portray him nicely.
I also think you should make an epilouge of this, you know, just so we knoe what happens (because I wanna know) :)
Anyway, hope you win the contest with this story since it deserves to be voted for. It's hard to portray Natsume when he has a disease that is not arrogance, huge ego-tism, self-loathing or just plain pride.
| One Heartbeat chapter 1 . 1/20/2010
I, for one, think your fic was brilliant. :) Long fic... so I'll write a long review. :D Damn this was like... 70 words. Gosh I can barely make 20.
Natsume was very in-character; I liked it because Natsume DOES act like that in the manga (jealous of other guys Mikan's with, especially Tsubasa), and so it makes you think, maybe Natsume IS sick in the head with Paranoid Personality Disorder. But of course we know he isn't (or is he?), so that's a bit out there. But it totally makes sense to me.
Natsume has such a screwed up family, I picture his uncle as a fat, old, rich man. Teehee.
"On that night, four days after my seventh birthday, I first learnt what was 'heartbreak'." After reading that I thought that you were going to end each section with one of his learning experiences. But nevermind. :)
"I didn't feel sad, I didn't feel like crying, not even when the police told me that there was a birthday cake in the car, probably intended for me." That's just sad. I was hoping that his parents were finally being nice, until you mentioned them wanting him to get illegal drugs for him. That's even more depressing. ): Good job.
I don't really like strawberry ice cream either. I'm more of a vanilla person, but strawberry is okay I-
"I was sick in the head, and I needed help." One step up for Nat. :) He finally admits he's a crazy.
"He didn't ask why at all, and I would have jumped up and kissed him.
If I was gay, that is." That so reminds me of Narumi, by the way. It just DOES! Heehee~ Reminds me when Narumi kissed Misaki in the manga... :D
"She sobbed brokenly in my arms, and I wrapped my arms around her stiffly, not knowing what to do." Natsume not knowing what to do END OF THE WORLD. Oh wait that's Hotaru, haha nevermind. But you know... 8D
“Natsume. It's never too late.” Annabel I get the title! Ahh right at the last line I understand... I'm so fail.
I love your choice of disorder... makes me want to pick a better one for mine, and it makes me actually WANT to start my DOMN contest entry, because I haven't started it yet and... *sigh* fail again. Anyway, good luck with the contest! You definitely have a chance of winning.
