| Emily and The White Rabbit chapter 4 . 4/28
I just love love love the way you manage all characters!
I always loved Kobato so much! And the names you chose are so perfect! And Dovie and Alex are married. This makes me ridiculously happy. And making Ian his brother is perfect T.T
And that thing about Zack, that he is a protector and needs to protect something it's so accurate for him!
Okay, I'll stop fangirling now

"They're housebroken and they don't take up much room. Can I keep them?"
Oh Finn. You're so cute TTTT I really like the idea of Fai/Finn taking them in from the streets. It warms my heart too much TT_TT
Finn hiding from cops sounds really interesting and something very Fai/Finn-like to be honest lol
I can't see the page where you show his car and I'll die with my curiosity unsatisfied but well, I just assumed it's a regular volkswagen beetle blue? I don't know much about cars so anyway xD

There is Doumeki to save the day! Zack now, it fits him *o*
I love this couple so so so so much (I think they are my second OTP besides Kurofai of course!) and you get their characters so well. I think I'll love you more with each cap lol
| Emily and The White Rabbit chapter 1 . 4/28
OMG that was really great!
I'll admit that in the beginning I was like "Nooooooo, don't change their names o" but I really really really liked the ones you chose. It matches the originals perfectly and I quite impressed the effort you put in choosing them and this story in general.
Poor Avril, don't think that, you're beautiful TTwTT where's Doumeki when he needs him? ajdhakjsdhak
I love Kurofai! I love you now

So ... this made me cry...
It's beautiful how you managed to put this story into a realistical setting and I love the parts from Zack/Doumeki's pov :)

I'll admit I was sceptical at first but as soon as I started reading I loved it! It made me cry though...
| Ren chapter 27 . 10/28/2014
Oh my god. That was the best AU CLAMP fiction I ever read. No, hold on. That was the best fanfiction I ever read! Thank you so much!
I especially enjoyed the caleb/finn, of course, and the Ian/Grey thing. I haven't read Kobato yet, so I had no comparisons but nevertheless i loved it.

Wow...I devoured this story. Absolutely amazing. I was honestly quite hesitant and the names threw me off at 1st, but after just a few chapters I was completely absorbed in the story. I have to admit, the only Clamp works I've read/watched are Tsubasa and Card Captors so...the characters of xxxholic and Kobato were fairly new to me. In the beginning I was a bit frustrated with so many characters and story lines going on at once but for the most part, I actually came to enjoy those characters and their story lines as well. I became especially fond of Watanuki & Doumeki and their interactions haha If I didn't already know how xxxholic ended, your story certainly would have sent me on an xxxholic reading binge.
The last chapter would have been better for me if there were a sequel for me to sink my teeth into. I mean, what better way to get your readers minds racing than to leave them with some questions? Although your author's note indicates your intention to write a sequel...there doesn't appear to be one yet? Is there still a chance for one? Will we ever see it? I would love to read more about these characters and what happens next with them. Although it seems unlikely that there will be a sequel after so long, I certainly hope that you do continue this story one day.
If you do write this sequel, I would definitely like to see more kurofai. I felt quite deprived of them until the climax of their story began within the last few chapters.
As for Gray & Ian...I'm quite sad to hear that you see veering from the path that you already set them on and see them finding other people...I found Gray to be so interesting and would love to hear more of his story. However, you really made me love Ian & Gray as a couple as well...it would be depressing to read about them moving on. HOWEVER! At the end of the day, this is YOUR story. I may not be happy with all of the decisions that you make but I will respect them. I love that you are listening to your characters as you write them rather than forcing them into a box or story that you have in mind.
Truthfully, I want to read ANYTHING that you have to offer us. You are an amazing writer and I'm totally about to go devour the rest of your Tsubasa fics! kekeke Thank you for this amazing read!
| BrokenWings2602 chapter 27 . 5/9/2014
Oh yes please, a sequel would be absolutely lovely! :D
I just stumbled upon it a few days ago and I instantly hooked! And it's one of the best AU! TRC fanfics I had read so far!
And the final chapter is... Well, hilarious. Mostly the part where Tsubasa-kun (Lee) indirectly accusing Doumeki (Zack) about hurting his precious Watanuki (Averil). - "I will kill Zack Williams", hahahahahahaha... XD
Ok, now for the sequel... Do you have plans to introduced Freya (Chii/Elda's twin sister)? She can be named Felicia. Or maybe both Kazahaya and Rikuo from "Drug & Drop" (originally "Legal Drug")? Rikuo can be named Rico, still don't know about Kazahaya though...
Or maybe Miyuki from "Miyuki-chan in Wonderland"? I personally think it would be entertaining if you decided to include her...after all, she's a chick magnet...to women. *wink wink* ;)
These are my thoughts/suggestions for the sequel. So you actually don't have to include them (though I wish you do), but then again, it's your story after all.
Looking forward to read the sequel! Can't wait! :D

1. This epilogue pretty much left me with questions that simply won't be answered if all I did was stare at the last chapter. Quite a way to end the story though, especially the one with Yvonne and Clarence. I was NOT expecting that.
2. I will honestly say I was quite apprehemsive about reading this at first. Very few have actually succeeding in writing a fic like this. The names got me confused at first but I figured them out better as I went through the chapters. The author's notes helped to. After having read all of this though, I can honestly say I love it. It's unique while still maintaining the canon-like events. Although, I'm honestly much more interested between what happens with Finn and Caleb rather than Averil and Zack.
3. I know this is probably very late but, yes, I would really love to have a sequel although sadly I don't have any ideas right now that I can suggest.
4. Ian and Gray are a mystery to me. I'd like to read more on them. Also, I'm not sure if you mentioned it in your A/N but I never quite grasped which of CLAMP's characters are being represented by Ian, Gray, Dovie, Alex and Oscar.
| Guest chapter 1 . 9/14/2013
I read this story a few years back and whenever I revisit clamp and kurofai I always end up here. It took me a while to find out the name since I forgotten but really this is my favourite fan fiction even to this day. The characters are just so spot on that I just can't complain. Anyhow I just wanted to write a review on my appreciation, thank you.
| Guest chapter 27 . 9/14/2013
Include gray and Ian. Maybe you could try to make Ian's girl the type who can hold her ground as well as motherly? Someone who won't get scared off by his dad, anyway. Maybe it was the dad who introduced them!
As for gray, maybe a girl who knows taekwondo and doesn't hesitate if she and gray fights. And she's stronger than gray. The 'seems more like friends than a couple' type of relationship would probably work.
You're really good at this. Keep it up! Good luck with it!

I absolutely adored this story. It is either the best or second best Tsubasa AU I have read. You will be posting the sequel on right?
| BLEACH IT WHITE chapter 14 . 7/6/2013
Last night, I read up to chapter 14 and went to bed and 1:30 am. HOLY COW. This is exactly what a Tsubasa AU should be. The characterizations are absolutely perfect, and though when I started I was wary of the name changes, now I can't think of how you could do a modern, set in America AU any other way. I really appreciate all the obvious research you put into writing this. You treat each illness carefully and with respect, and it's not often, I've found, you come across that. It reminds immensely of John Green's treatment of illness in The Fault In Our Stars, and if you haven't read that book, know that this possibly one of the biggest compliments I can give. I also ADORE all of the crossovers. I haven't read Kobato (though I did find that subplot of the story very interesting), but xxxHolic is near and dear to my heart. The really fascinating thing about your writing is that when I'm reading the Tsubasa sections, it feels like a Tsubasa AU, and when I'm reading the xxxHolic sections, it feels like a xxxHolic AU. That may sound kind of obvious, but you manage to recreate the expirience of reading xxxHolic and Tsubasa side by side. They are very different stories which interconnect, and you portray that perfectly. Also, KOHANE! She's one of my favorites, and I'm glad you brought her in earlier than in the original. I really enjoy that we also get to read Zack's POV on Averil. (great way of bringing in the April 1st thing, by the way.)
So, in short, A job.
