You have no clue how many times I've read this fanfic of yours . Too many times lets just say, and you know what? I'll probably read the whole thing again. You just captured Eugene and Rapunzel so perfectly, it felt like this could be canon stuff in the Tangled universe. Your writing is amazing , I love so many of your other fanfics as well and gahd I hope you upload new Tangled stuff in the future . A girl can hope :D thank you so much for sharing such an amazing fan fiction and hands down you are on my top authors list. Your awesome!

That's all I can really think of to say.

Oh my god this is way too perfect. I know I'm late getting to this but I just had to say that this fic was AMAZING and I loved every minute of it and oh wow. You're amazing. I can't wait to read more of your writing!

Why can a story, whose purpose is basically pure smut, have me sniffling at the happy ending on the last chapter?
The answer is that you wrote a damn fine story.

That's all I can say.

Just discovered your story-never seen the movie, but I love your writing, and am looking forward to reading more. Thanks for sharing your words with us.

Loved it. Really, it felt so canon. Except for Disney, of course, at most would only have alluded to your M-rated scenes, so this actually felt more realistic. It was very sweet and well-written and you did a wonderful job. :)

your authors note makes me wonder what all of my teachers are doing when they 'check their e-mails.' hahaha Great story though! I love it! You have a wonderful prose style that's true to Eugene.

Forgot to say, I found his story in the middle of the night and read in two days so addictive (lunchtime and after arriving from work) and skies! I'm 21 years old and I was stuck in a fic about Tangled was amazing (well, I like the movie, but now I'm wrapped it up to the neck); Oh, I was so entranced by his writing that I forget to mention about the characters. I loved the realism that you put in the text, for the maturity of the feelings of each character. They followed a (much more natural than those of disney, thank god) natural rhythm. Loved the way you treated Eugene. A guy with his experience, not a silly teenager (as some fics do). I also liked Rapunzel, she was very faithful to the history of Disney. Still not looked like an idiot, but a person of 18 years, with desires and confusions of a normal person. The way you handled the personality of each character-including animals-it was very, very cool. His story is fascinating. And what I liked is that even using terms like "condom" and some other things, it was not forced, it was not a grotesque error or anything. Was plausible for the 'alternate Earth' Disney. In the end, I loved everything you did, conflicts, new beginnings, EVERYTHING. Congratulations. And excuse the mistakes. Brazilian girl, still learning.

Oun, this is the cutest thing I've read today. I have a serious crush on Tangled, more precisely by Eugene and Rapunzel and you put it so ... * _ * So speechless. Congratulations, the nuances of the story, the way you described every feeling and frustration of Eugene, was simply too much for me. I like his point of view, was ... Amazing.
The care that you had to choose his words when writing made a difference. You left everything tasty reading. Sorry if I sounded confusing, I'm not so good at writing in English as I am reading. Congratulations, you won one (or more) Brazilian reader.

I salute you sir.
I appreciate that you understand the gravity of your errors, and are willing to pay the appropriate penalty. I'd say two death sentences, though, for not being willing to go back and take five minutes to fix them. Maybe hung, and then shot while being hung? Sounds like it would work. Maybe throw in some fire for good measure.
Although I understand your dismissal of any importance to it, I feel you should go and correct the errors (Well, not now, but if you noticed so soon you should've done it at the time). Because fanfiction is amateur and serial you have opportunity (and I'd say a duty) to fix such obvious errors. I just don't understand why some people are so obstinate in this regard. Oh well, what's done is done.
Still great writing. Third Person Limited Present Tense is a weird style to write in, but you do a good job with it.

Oh my god, you made it worse. I'm speechless, really. Utterly speechless. Especially since you mentioned sheep intestine condoms too.
Gregor Mendel was mostly dismissed for his work, and it wasn't recognised by the scientific community until 1900 or so. Even Darwin hadn't known about it! I am so disappointed. I was so hoping you wouldn't make this mistake as I was reviewing the last chapter.
Great writing though.

OH GOD THE ANACHRONISM. MY EYES. THEY WEEP BLOOD.
You're a grown man! And a teacher! This is basic stuff! Darwin published his theory in 1859, and didn't even conceive of it until the 1830s. YOUR MISTAKE IS UNACCEPTABLE. I REFUSE TO ACCEPT YOUR EXCUSES.
This is 'officially' set in the 1780s on Real Earth and definitely, no matter the plausible forward chronological stretch, pre-Darwin. Even if this is to be AU to proper earth history, it would still be pre-evolutionary-theory. Evolution is not a thing yet; people (in Europe, of course) believed at that time that homo sapiens sapiens was created in its current and only form by God in His image.
And genetics was stuck in the "blending inheritance" phase, which, for anyone too lazy to look it up, is that offspring tended to be the "average" of the parents. Which has obvious problems even here, as Rapunzel is shorter than both her parents by a wide margin, though her hair and eye colour fit the model. Anyway, bringing anything factual into a story requires RIGOROUS FACT CHECKING! RIGOROUS, I SAY! Don't skip out on five minutes of reading on wikipedia just because what you're writing is fanfiction. There is no excuse for unintentional anachronism!
I liked the rest of the story anyway, though, to this point. Nice writing, and definitely a sensible take on the whole "raised in intentional ignorance of everything" thing that Rapunzel has going on. Got the characters just right too, I feel.
Anyway, you seem like (from the first five chapters of this story and your profile) an intelligent man who didn't need me to explain this to you. I just couldn't let such an egregious error alone. I'd like to apologize for my inability to let it alone, though. And for my long-windedness. My mind, it holds much wind.

This was beautiful. I love how this was void of all the teenage-drama-esque crap that most Tangled fics seem to be riddled with and actually contains real problems that mature relationships face. The characters are nicely developed and real and I appreciate how you portrayed everyone, very true to their original characters.
Very nice fic.
