I really liked this and I think you did a very good job!

I really loved this! Even though it was a huge one-shot, I just loved the way that the story flowed from one point to the next. How their encounter brought them together and their family issues were resolved, it's seriously amazing. I wasn't at all bothered by the sex scene, only because it was written how to say tastefully and not in really disgusting terms, but in a certain discreet type of writing? You get what I mean, right? Because I can't count how many times I have stumbled upon on lemon and it was written horribly. This though was written beautifully, from beginning till the very last sentence.
I really loved it and I hope that you do make a sequel, I'd be excited to read it! c:

This might be 4 years too late but thank you for writing such a beautiful story! The way you portrayed the characters was amazing. I enjoyed all 84 MS Word pages of it :3

First of all, I love lenghty fics. Sometimes it could get boring but only when the story doesn't flow. But you have some serious talent. I was entertained every step of the way, honest.
Secondly, I love Ikuto. Almost 90% of the time I wanted to shake some sense into Amu. I mean Who would prefer girly-looking Tadase over drop-dead gorgeous Ikuto?. I don't like to see him suffering but I this is my favorite Amuto story, hands down.
Finally, my perverted self would have liked to see more Amuto smut but actually your fic is perfect just the way it is. I don't know why people give so much grief over silly things, and conveniently forget to read the N/A. I mean, come on!.
Don't worry dear, there are a lot of people who loves you and your wonderful masterpieces.

I don't know how many times I've read this fic, its definitely one of my favorites. So incredibly mature. I've enjoyed reading every single word of it.

My goodness, this was a beautiful story. I don't usually delve into the fic list for Shugo Chara! unless it's been recommended by one of the series' writers I favor (so thank you, . h e l l, for letting me learn about "Taking Initiative," which eventually led me to this piece).
I love a long, well-written and thought-out fic, in which each characters in the story are well developed, but their stories don't overtake their roles in the plot (that's what spin-offs and sequels are for). And you did that here with many of the minor characters (thankfully). When you wrote that Ikuto used to visit the amusement park with his sister and a friend, I thought for sure it'd be Tadase. However, I do like how you stuck to your main story-line without going off on tangents, which you could have easily don't with Ami's and Tadase's parts.
I'm so impressed how you made Amu experience such character development, especially when I was in agreement that she was acting a bit childish at the beginning. How you handled that aspect of her, and along with her character's level of logic and reasoning, was just fantastically done. And not just Amu, so many of these characters have such impressive development within the plot that you can really feel a sense of connection to their plights and troubles.
Just as impressive is the message(s) you convey in this story, making what I read beyond a simple romance (though your more intimate scene were just HOT!). I mean, I appreciate a good romance, which this was; but even more so, I adore when a writer writes a fic that goes beyond the romantic love scenes and adds depth to its plot. So bravo to your ingenuity.
I especially loved how you smoothly incorporated so many elements from the show into your story, such as Ikuto's strange methods of going place to place, Utau's and Kukai's ramen fixation/competition, and the dumpty key and humpty lock (XDXDXD!).
I did think that the change from Amu's and Ami's confrontation to Ikuto's inner struggle about his and Amu's relationship was a bit abrupt. Perhaps, putting a bit more space between the closure on the girls, just to let us readers be able to really feel the conclusion of it, and then letting Ikuto have his part. I can understand why you did it because it fits well with the part where Amu stated she didn't need Tadase to be happy, but it still felt a bit awkward at the first switch. But overall, it didn't detract from the epicness of the story.
So, I'll end this review by stating that it's fics like this that give me such a feeling of kindred spirits with the fans of this series. That there are fans who aren't only concerned with just the ships, but also with the characters and their growths and interactions. I'm so glad to have read this fic and I hope you do continue to write more in this fandom.

This was so far, one of the best Shugo Chara fanfic I have ever read.
It was so very well written that I fell in love with this story more than once.
You made it l

Please excuse me while I go fangirl.
Yeah, this was long but it was worth every single word; I never got bored, not even once. Where to start? This was an amazing AU. I loved the characters. Ugh. Everything was so incredibly realistic and what Amu and Ikuto were going through eats my heart.
| LemonNinjaa chapter 1 . 1/2/2014
Oh my god, I don't think I've ever read such a fantastic story. It was gripping the entire way through and it didn't seem fake or predetermined at all. The development and depth was clearly evident, the characters were believable (and so were their motives) and woah I just want to keep reading but it's over. :( Such a beautiful story, I'm so glad I had the pleasure to come across it!

Oh my God this one-shot should of been a story.! It would of been amazing.! I love how Amu and Ikuto got to spend more and more time with one another till they became a couple. Especially how Ikuto made a special song for Amu.! 3 That was just so sweet and cute.!
"Ikuto was in awe of how screwed up both these sisters were." I kept laughing at that.! It was just so damn funny.! .

What a great story! I loved the multiple POVs, particularly Ikuto's :)
