I don't like to write reviews often, but I NEEDED to say how much I absolutely ADORED this story
I loved everything about it, and your grammar and spelling was impeccable; which doesn't happen often enough in fan fiction. This was VERY well-written (or at least I thought it was), and the imagery was fantastic! I am SO grateful to you (Araine) for writing this!

Beautiful! Excellent vocabulary, strayed from the unfortunately common XXX that occurs every minute between everybody, while still painting a good image. It's really interesting overall.

I thought this story would be short, because it only has four chapters
I was beyond wrong.
However, I am grateful I was wrong. c: I really enjoyed the story, and was always curious of Lau and Ranmao's past. Though I believe that Ranmao talked more than she usually does, it's understandable, because all the times we saw her she was in the presence of other people, rather than only with Lau. So, in my opinion, this story has no flaws. At least, none that I found.
Thank you for writing such an interesting story.

Love it! I like how you described the relationship between Lau and Ranmao.

I thought I had reviewed but apparently no.
So, very nice to see such a good story about those two. I find Ranmao and Lau's relationship very interesting, and they're both suite mysterious, yet you can see that they're close to each other.
You did a very good job about them both on their respective personality. So no problem of characterization.
I also like the fact that you used Ranmao's POV, since she's always a background character!
And last point, all the past you've imagined for them is well thought and there are no parts left out and you've written all that with a very good writing style! I myself really like old Chinese/Japanese way of life and culture, so this was a nice story to read!
You should keep on writing about them, you did good!

Wow. This was soo insightful, and meaningful.
The best story i have read in a very, very long time.
| firequirks chapter 4 . 7/15/2012
That was absolutely wonderful! It seemed that you had background knowledge of the Chinese mafia?
| FerItzel chapter 4 . 7/9/2012
I love it. I love your style and I just love everything about this story.
It would have been good for it to continue on but it still was a good ending. :D

Awesome story! Probably one of the best fanfictions i've read in a long time! The characters were great and in character, the ploy was awesome, the idea was gold and the writing was amazing. This story definitely deserves an award of some sort. I would love if there was a sequel ti this story or if you wrote more Lau and Ranmao stories that would be just as good.

Why do people not realize how awesome this story is? Why does it only have nine reviews? This is a WONDERFUL amazing awesome excellent brilliant cool fabulous enjoyable stupendous phenomenal fantastic groovy story!
However, the end makes it seem like a sequel needs to happen. (Hint hint) Lau says that China hasn't forgotten them yet, and then it just ENDS. Why? Your writing is so good that I don't want it to be over...
Are Ranmao's club-things actually called Chui? I've always wondered what they were called.
I'm sorry that I'm so bad at leaving reviews...
Till your next story!
| A Madder Sky chapter 4 . 6/30/2011
This story has such a sad lack of reviews... I normally don't review, yes, I'm a horrible person, even when it's a good story, but you deserve it! The characterizations in this were stunningly well portrayed, and everything made absolute sense :3
You definitely keep everyone in character, and your historical and cultural backgrounds are nice and accurate - I think. Heh, I don't reaaally know anything about China. The story had a great flow, and I enjoyed the way you skipped between present day (or, well, present day in kuro) and the past.
I'm looking forward to reading more of your work in this fandom (or maybe you could attempt a Code Geass? I'd love you forever) and thanks for the good read

Very well done, and most athentic piece of Chinese based literature I've found on FFN. You must have done a lot of research, or are you Chinese too? I greatly enjoyed this, both the back story and the present day one. Everything you wrote, really makes a lot of sense with the anime. Beautifully done
| The XIIIth Card chapter 1 . 4/19/2011
Ranmao and Lau don't get nearly enough attention. I don't personally know a lot about China, but I like what you've done with the backstory so far.
