I love your stories.
As for advice, I think it would be a good idea to explore further into the difficulties of seperating himself into "Masumi" and "Purple Rose" and trying to keep them from overlapping.

This has been really interesting so far.
I wonder if Masumi is going to confront Tsukikage about her and Ichiren's relationship (which wasn't anything seedy I think but still), since that situation is quite similar, except the younger woman is in love with the older man. Would she have accused Ichiren of being a pervert when she was an older teen if he'd felt the same for her?
I just wonder if she'll see how similar the situation is to hers, in a manner...

This is relly good! I love the conversations between Hayami and Tsukikage, and I hope so much that Tsukikage realises who 'Purple Rose' is. Maybe she could start suspect when she ask Maya about 'Purple Rose', and realise that this could be the very proof she has searched ;)
I really wish you write more soon!

Fyuuhh...the most cynical tantrum I've ever read. Keep going!

Man, I love your characterization! Your Masumi and Tsukikage send chills down my spine with how intense they are. You capture their personalities exactly. It's so refreshing. And your Mizuki makes laugh out loud! :D :D :D I wish I could give ya more advice and/or observations but that's all I got. ; I love this though, you did an amazing job! :D

"Maya didn't know why—really didn't know why—but Masumi's sombreness disconcerted her." KYHAHA! Yay Maya!
LOL "I'm flattered that you would give me such a high mythological ranking."
"...was like flicking water on a greased up duck" That's...so original!
Your writing is just so...witty! I can't get enough of it!
"You free to say what you want about us, madam," - "[You're]..."
"I don't Maya to become like you, - "I don't [want] Maya..."

LOL, "Is she a camel?" x)
Awesome chappie. Great detail, great comparisons, and amazingly, even the most confusing emotions of each character were displayed clearly!
You're an INCREDIBLE writer!
| Justonereason chapter 3 . 1/11/2011
let's start with my favorite line:
'it's better to know how to use the Devil to your benefit than to ignore his existence'
what a strong sentence!
anyway i always love the dialog you made, and to be honest i never picture Tsikikage this way, but i believe she sense something on Masumi too.
and about the essay betwee masumi and tsukikage...please do...i will read it if you ever publish it!PROMISE!
keep up the great work!

didn't i tell you how much i luv your version of masumi hayami? i didn't? well, let me tell you once again then: i luv your deviated interpretations on the characters, especially on masumi hayami. with his weird sense of humor and masochistic tendencies, you've successfully turned him into human. i also luv your mizuki, how she managed to balance between her job and her insane urge to stick her nose into her boss' private affairs. and the banters.. that's just sth you do with your superior when you've known them for a long time. the way mizuki handled masumi kinda reminded me of my former boss whenever his quirks came up [we've known each other for 10 years]. but of course, masumi being drop-dead gorgeous is like a triple bonus that paid off some of the headaches. i also like your maya, and tsukikage being theatrical on daily basis. keep up the good works, and i hope you'll update Taming The Shrewd soon. ganbatte! XD

I'm always thrilled when I see your penname appear in my inbox. :D
Overall, hilarious chapter. How those two were at each other's throat...
You have very vivid imagery in your writing.
Thanks for the good read.

Love the story, Hope you'll update the story. ASAP!
| AL chapter 1 . 9/30/2010
I actually come to your writing and re-read the dialogue. As a writer, I'm struggling with speech; as a reader, you've got me on the floor laughing (creating witty jokes is another flaw of my wooden-ness). You're very inspirational
PS-I've read most of your work, just decided to leave a comment here randomly. Haha
| pheecat chapter 2 . 9/4/2010
Wow, this chapter was difficult to read. Tsukikage is evil in her own right, even though she probably thinks her motivation is noble. And, at the end Masumi just seems frozen and unfixable. Sure he's successful in the business world, but this chapter makes it seem even more remote that things could ever work out between Maya and Masumi. It was well-written, just kind of depressing. Having said that, I'm still curious as to what will happen next.
