Like what in the world. I can't even begin to describe my love for this story! Everything about it is just so perfect in every way! You've depicted each character perfectly, giving them reactions and views spot on with no signs of them being even slightly out of character! I'm in love with this story!
I feel so much empathy for each of them! If I were hikari I would be so broken I couldn't function (which would probably show if I ever tried to write as her. I wouldn't make her herself which makes you so unbelievable) Poor poor Koushiro! Oh my word, out of any of them I would end up the most like him! I love him so much! I hope things end up all right in the end :'( but perfect stories can't always have a happy ending so I completely understand if it isn't. I would almost prefer it, actually. Give your full and honest ending. Whatever you think is the best :)
Can't wait for more! Hope everything is going well for you and that maybe you'll get a chance to update soon!

Hi, I ve read your essay and hope to translate it ! Can I do this with your kind permission?

This fic is really great, the format is different, but well done. The only problem I have in relation to it, is that I didn't find it earlier. Can't wait for the next! :D

all right lady you waffled about long enough Whens the next chapter hmmm?
| Aqua Vargas chapter 1 . 1/2/2013
Well.I'd say that I'd been really really impressed by your extraordinary conprehension of the characer in DA and DA02, especially... I can't pick someone out as you've described everyone so well (and no offense, which is rarely seen amoung the fics written by the authors in Europe or America, considering the cultural diversity. However, even in Japenese or Chinese Fandom there are still many people seeing nothing but the extrinsic feature of them, I can assure you...) While I still say that the chapter for Miyako is too brilliant even for me to have ever imaged. It virtually makes me stopped to rebuilt the inherent inpression of her
This story reminds me one song, which was exactly performed by Taichi. 新しの太陽（Brandnew Sunshine） Have you ever listened to that? Its lyrics can perfectly reflect Taichi's inner image in DA02, as a grown, mature pioneer, just like you do. Urge recommendation! (However I have nearly wept over Miyako-chan's quesion, lol)
And I'm now wondering if I can translate this story into Chinese (or Japenese also). It would be more than a fanfic but also a model characterization for many authors. Certainly all rights will served by you still, and I'll link it to you after finishing if you like. Hope it would not bother you.
Looking forward your reply. Best wishes and a tardy HAPPY NEW YEAR :)

I love this story...the time and detail you take into crafting Tai's relationships with everyone...its cheerful at times, then heartbreaking. I hope you finish this. So far, I think you couldn't have done a better job. It's great. The emotions of all the characters are fully realized and I've been reading nonstop for a few hours. Really, really well done.

Is this story is still alive?

It's been a while since I've read this fic. I must say that, even after all this time, you hit all the heartstrings when it comes to the "Taichi being caught in the past" plotbunny.
I will say that now, rereading, some parts could probably be better with a bit more subtlety, but I know how hard chapters are to change after so much time on ff. It's not anything very damaging anyways ;
I'm glad Taichi is coming back in the end (thought you've been hinting it in the AN for a while now XD). I can only hope that it's just not a, "Hey guys, I'm back!" but also some kind of transformative experience for him. (We've spent ... uhm 12? chapters on how it changed the way the other Chosen Children perceived him, so that's already done.)
Thanks for writing! Late review is late but I found some Digimon fics to pull me back in and then I had the urge to reread yours ;

Please update! I want Taichi-kun to live! Koushirou-kun can't be alone! Preetty please!

Okay, got home from work, went downstairs to a loud session of movie watching and drinking guests, check my e-mails and see this update! Of course there is no putting off of the reading of this update, but what to do? Too much noise and this is the only computer in the house that works, it's Frankenstein's monster, far to heavy to take upstairs. So I plugged my ears hard enough to hear my blood pounding. Now everyone's nagging me on why I'm all teary eyed.
I want to wrap Koushirou up in a blanket and snuggle him. Probably wouldn't help, but at least I'd feel like I was doing something. You're making me feel helpless that I cannot help this fictional character. Bah. I've never felt love of that variety before (familial love sure, lots of it) but I can clearly imagine that having it for so brief a moment before it was ripped away from you would burn... horrifically. And you definitely show how it's burning Koushirou.
The bit you mentioned about the scar in the digital world healing made sense even relating to our world. The earth tends to heal over with little fuss. Humans not so much. I'm convinced that the earth will heal itself and continue on long after humans are gone.
The last line about refusing to let himself hope was very strong too. Hope is so very often considered a good thing, but sometimes it can be the thing that ruins us. I read a book once called... I don't remember actually... but in the end hope was the thing the characters needed to abandon in order to free themselves. Koushirou needs to move forward but letting himself hope, would make him falter under the grief, I guess? That's how I'm reading it. If I'm way off base, I apologize.
Anyway, I need to go to bed, because I have a crazy weekend coming up that starts tomorrow. Thank you so much for updating. I really do look forward to your chapters so much. I'm on the edge of my seat here!

i love your story i love your plot i love your writing style i love everything. so today i was on fanfiction trying to feel less horrible about my finals when i came across your story and chose it. it was so incrediblely amazing fantastic i had to read it from beginning to end in one sitting. there are no words to describe what you have written because it was that good. my favorite character from digimon has always been tai so you writing about him made me extremely happy especially in a more thoughtful light because we do not often see that. that was probably one of the things i liked best becausee it gave really depth to tai but what i like most was that you touch on real emotion that all of us feel so i would like to thank you becaue you made me feel better about my finals and i review in hope that you update soon!

Did you mean sow a seed, as in plant a seed? You wrote sew a seed, as in stitching a seed, which doesn't make a lot of sense.

i am in LOVE with this story, and i don't care how long it tales to finish it, because it will still be amazing!

I'm not crying. I don't know what your talking about. *scrubs eyes*
Okay I might have gotten a little leaky there, but I blame the music. For some reason Adele fits this chapter, not so much the lyrics but the tune itself. Especially since Turning Tables came to an end just as I finished the chapter and the music upswelled into definite striking notes as Hikari came to her decision.
My blaming the music should not downplay your new chapter in any way, just so you know. The emotions were rife and heavy. I got a clear and painful image of Susumu folding in on himself against the wall, unable to hold himself up; of Yuuko raging hysterically against the loss of her child; and Hikari sitting silently through it, staring into space as if she's unaware of any of it - even though she is.
Let me reiterate the awesome quality of your writing. You always leave me struck dumb for awhile after reading. I have to pause and think before I can review.
I'm literaly on the edge of my seat for the next chapter. I think that one might make me full out bawl. I'm also looking forward to seeing what happens to Taichi's glittery remains. Is he going to be reborn? Will he become a digimon? Will he be a voice on the winds of the digital world? So many questions and possible outcomes of that 'interesting development.'
On another note: I've actually just finished re-reading the whole story and can I say that I am so very glad that you got swept away by this story and decided to make it longer. Because it is just brilliant.
