| Hakkuchi chapter 16 . 12/9/2011
The chapters leading up to and including Karin's death made my eyes watery. And I haven't shed a tear for a long time! I hope you are still writing. I wonder if Karin will ever regain her memories. I suspect she will, and when she does, she'll be devastated once more. Thank you for the story! I'll waiting to read what happens next if you do decide to update.

That was heartbreaking. To lose your twin right before your eyes, feeling useless. They were meant to grow up, grow old together. Coincidentally, I was listening to a pretty sad song. So, when I was reading how Karin was thinking back to all those times they spent together and how she wished she had told Yuzu how much of a wonder she was, I thought the lyrics "But once upon a time never comes again" really hit the message home.

This is so interesting. I mean, usually it's Karin trying to pick up the pieces for a broken Toushiro after the death of Hinamori. I can't wait to see how Toushiro will fall for his "sister's sister" and what will happen when Karin gets her memories back. It reminds me of the song Cosmic Love by Florence and The Machine. Happy New Year, hope it's full of inspiration.

What? WHAT? Mare, you've set my mind afire with curiosity. Are you trying to kill me? I'm trying to ease my way back into the world of reading fanfiction after a hiatus of many months, and almost straight off the bat you've got me hooked onto something that's cunning, brilliantly written and just confusing enough for me to demand more. Bloody fantastic work on this. Keep a...eh, you know the rest.
Also, I must now forgo sleep just so I have a chance at catching you online for a chat. I need to hear what you have planned for this!

Awesome story so far. I have really enjoyed it.
Please update soon!

What! this is interesting...Hinamori Karin...And i am so glad that Momo didn't die xD
So she did forget who he is (to her). And she did forget her surname...(kurosaki)
I am curious! How did Karin get to know Momo, or maybe thought that Momo was the Yuzu that she's been searching for?
Someone feeling so familiar, but not quite her...:p Not the sister that shares half her soul...
But now, Toushriou has another sister. :D
Ah...and it was Karin who was playing with his hair...and so the girl jotting down notes was Momo?
Waking up to see Karin...:D Like a rising sun, i guess.
p.s. your roman Numerals for chapter 8 is wrong. Should be Viii. lol.

But i thought he was in the 4th barracks...
Did time fly so quick that she's already a shinigami now.
Though i wonder how does she remember him...or she didn't forget at all :D
You surprise me...just when you think you're writing about this, it's acctually about that...XD
I love discovering your fic.
| Moon Of Jupiter chapter 14 . 9/30/2010
Rangiku and Ukitake...how could we miss them, like an aunt and an uncle, maybe it is now that the word 'family' is truely felt?
That he is not alone and loved and cherished...
Well, at least i feel this way when reading this chapter.
tho i can't seem to see who the person that is 'jotting down notes' is - Nanao?
The only person that i can link to that does that...
And the last visitor...Yachiru? Hiyori(nah)? but that doesn't seem right either :D
p.s. I wonder what is wrong with fanfiiction dot net these days!
I can't access it at times! sighs...

I absolutely love how you write Hyourinmaru and Toushriou's inner world.
I find that it is something so magnificent to read off your writing. His wisdom and your ability to bring a different light to it without sounding drone like...
His road to discovery...i love this chapter...
problably my favorite so far :D
| PunkRockHolly chapter 16 . 9/29/2010
Alright. I'm glad he's awake, but a little confused. A good four chapters though, haha. I wasn't expecting a huge update! It made me happy. ] Very curious and excited to figure out what exactly is going on...
| trekkiexb5 chapter 16 . 9/28/2010
CAN'T KEEP UP...with your story updates! I left the computer for 15 minutes and POOF! another chapter! Regardless, awesome story, way different (and that's a compliment) than anything else.
SO...If I walk away for an hour, will the story be completed? :P
| Moon Of Jupiter chapter 12 . 9/15/2010
I absolutely love this:
"Go find it," Hyourinmaru commands, so sure hope is not lost, "Go find the man you will become, and discover the boy you are."
This sentence is so powerful!
it just hits me so hard because i feel so strongly about it towards Toushirou...what he NEEDS to do! what i hope he could do...what i wish he would just go and...go and DISCOVER. Something ELSE! ANYTHING...sighs...
update soon girl!
| Moon Of Jupiter chapter 11 . 9/15/2010
Ah, you did't scare me that much...i sort of figured it out when i pressed the PM reply button :p
Tho i acctually really quite liked the idea! :D
Hyourinmaru being the embodiment of his soul, him being hyourinmaru - a dragon :D
I really liked chapter 10, soaring above the heavens being 'him', i felt it was...
and there was freedom...sort of a moment of excape, protection and just to think, and maybe even to run away for the time being.
And really, the spirit of, this and the last chapter, really reminscent of Miyazaki's 'spirited away' and his 'Haku'(loved that boy/dragon too.), also seeming like a person searching for himself :D
I am looking forward to 'how' will their meeting be like :D.
Tho i wonder if Karin will remember at all :D
| Ryfee chapter 12 . 9/15/2010
Tattered. Broken to the core. Scars etched to his skin forever. The cold, numbing pain, the one that ignores the surface, but always freezes the heart - an escape?
When one loses the sight of himself... I'd imagine it's like death. No. It *is* death. His eyes are open, but he can't see anything anymore, all painted in black. He's breathing, but all he can inhale is splinters. He can move, but he moves everywhere and nowhere. He smiles at the nothingness. His heart is beating, but he cannot feel anything. I think... I think it's the most terrifying death. Knowing that all is lost, feeling everything but *nothing*, stagnant, ghostlike, hovering aimlessly amidst oblivion. That feeling is so overwhelming and lonely and dreadful.
Who is a man without a face behind the mask? Towards the end of this chapter I got all teary eyed. I can relate to... this a lot. Do the choices we make define who we are? Or do we hide behind the choices, and become the identity we choose? It got me thinking a lot. When one's persona is lost - is it still possible to rediscover it? Is *our* self something akin to *purpose* or *heart*? One we can find along the way... one we can discover through journeys of tears and smiles? I would like to believe in that. An iridescent hope. One worth pursuing. The last two paragraphs are just too touching that I can't help but shed tears.
| Ryfee chapter 11 . 9/15/2010
Losing yourself is such a dreading thought. I really adore some of the lines you used, example: [Perhaps, they never have. Maybe, he's never touched the ground.] I told you we might have some sort of telepathy. :P
The sky, the clouds - the silent, peaceful refuge. Offering eternal repose, where all is drifting in cunning serenity.
This feels even lonelier than the previous chapter. Losing the purpose of his life, losing his life, losing *himself* altogether. I LOVE the last two paragraphs. Especially the last. Although sounding poignant, it gives me a glimpse of hope, however tiny it may be.
