Man, you just have a knack for breaking my heart. I didn't expect this to get so down in the dumps. My favourite part was when Tangling said she would smile, whether fake or genuine, and that she learned it from watching him. Also, the way she is desperate for someone else to remember him the way she remembered him. Ah, well done.

My feels.
So glad to have stumbled on another well-written GinRan angst fic. And "Home had died in Karakura Town" did it for me.

I think if an artist had dipped a brush directly into Rangiku's heart and dragged it across paper, this would be the result. A beautiful, poignant winter melody.

Wow, that was amazing. Bittersweet and beautiful and ephemeral and a million other adjectives I could use but would never come close to pinning down this lovely one-shot. It was an absolute joy to read.

I think I really needed something like this after the Deicide arc. It's so wonderful that I don't know what to really say. It just hit all the right notes with me. I guess the reason why I love the GinRan pairing so much is the bittersweetness of it all. I've always liked angst a bit too much to be healthy. "

Love this so very much!

Aww, this was so touching and sad! There are tons of Gin/Ran angst fics out there, but this one really stands out: the emotions are so vivid, and the moment feels so real. I especially like the line "Home had died in Karakura Town." Rangiku really feels in-character and true to herself, too.

Thank you for writing!

Wow, this was one of the saddest things I've ever read, but it was amazing. The fact that she almost told the man about Gin was a very nice touch, and the whole thing made me feel soooo bad for Rangiku.

Beautiful. :) No matter how many good Gin/Rangiku fics I read, there still aren't enough, and this is a lovely one. There isn't really another pairing like it. I especially liked her italicized thoughts. Thank you. -

Oh. Oh wow. That was definitely of higher caliber. I really have nothing to say that would be adequate enough to describe how I felt and would do justice to the level of your ability. That was really brilliant and very well done over all. If you ever publish a book of original works, I would most dearly like to know so that I may by it. Really. This was more than just poetry, very good job.

I don't know by what miracle my wish you wrote onj this very theme came true, but I feel almost grateful for this little bit of insight. I knew you could write what I only imagined Rangiku now felt. It is beautiful though really very sad. makes me wonder what it would be alike if Gin was alive and came back by her side. Such a wistfull wish, I really hate that sad and empty look in her eyes, as she is a wonderful person.

Thank you very much again, it was lovely.

*cries*... it feels like he just died all over again... *cries some more*

Thank you, it was very beautiful... I wonder if Rangiku's even aware all the scarfs she had bought are in shades of blue?

Although, I think Gin would want her to forget about him and his failure, that's why he left her so little to remember him by. She wouldn't be able to move from that spot otherwise...

Thanks again :)
