Okay, I just found this fic yesterday and it's been a while since I was in the XXXHolic fandom.
Actually, I hope you don't mind if I downloaded your fic from . I did it so I could listen to it as audiobook (I got a phone app that can read text aloud) so I can multi-task - do my work while enjoying listening to this story (since my schedule's rather hectic that I really don't have time to actually read books and fanfics).
Anyway, let me just say that I love this fic. I really don't mind if some of the characters were a bit OOC since I think it's sensible anyway based on the set up of the story itself. Just like when Watanuki had become a bit insane - yeah, I think even a being of magic like him would indeed lose a bit of his insanity if he keeps losing his lovers due to the cruelty time and mortality, and then keep searching for his intended with the uncertainty of whether he'll get to him on time or getting to him too late.
I think one of the saddest part of this story for me is when Haruka died in Watanuki's arms. That really broke my heart. And to be honest, I think the love between Haruka and Watanuki in this fic is stronger than Shizuka and Watanuki - I mean I can't helped but assume that in this fic, Watanuki's true love was actually Haruka and not Shizuka; and that the only reason why Shizuka was with Watanuki forever was because Watanuki need to abide with the rules that whomever is intended for him should be the one to spend the eternity with him forever regardless if the one he truly love was his intended or not. For me in this fic, Haruka was Watanuki's true love - but unfortunately he was not his intended. That was really tragic.
And anyway, I kind feel sad for Watanuki and Shizuka, too because ... given that Shizuka needed to lose his memories in order to be with Watanuki, I don't think true love exists between them. Shizuka was like a brained-washed puppet and was only with Watanuki to merely play the role of being his intended without a "real" free will. Also, I can't helped assume that deep inside, Watanuki was suffering, too because he had no choice but to accept who was intended for him, otherwise he would have no one else-and maybe this was the reason, too why Watanuki turned a bit insane and evil. Sorry maybe I was just thinking too much but this is what I honestly think and feel. XDDD
Also, I'd like to say that I really love this hunter vs. witches set up. You did an awesome job writing this story that I could totally imagine the world you created. The fighting and magic were all well-described and narrated. This kind of genre and set up are one of my favorites (one of the reasons, too why XXXHolic is one of my favorite anime/manga) - I love dark, supernatural-fantasy.
Anyway, keep up the good work and thank you very much for this fantastic fanfic. :)

Great story line but the ending felt me feeling some kind of way. Watanuki was a bit harsh wasn't he.

I really enjoyed this story. The plot was great but I do feel a little bad for Subaru that was kind of a bitch slap for him.

Yesssss This story was amazing! 8D Thank you for writing this, because you've truly made my day. I've been swamped with projects and my grade was on a decline just from stress alone. Thank you for this, I think I'll be alright now.

This was written and finished in 2011. Do I care? NOPE STILL REVIEWING.
THIS FANFICTION WAS SIMPLY AMAZING AND I DONT EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF. Oh my goodness the way you portrayed Watanuki was just too much for my heart to handle, it was amazing. I loved every bit of it. There was so much about him that just made me adore him. His possessive attitude, manipulative, vain, just EVERYTHING I wished every uke would be. Oh my goodness. I loved their relationship. The fact that Doumeki had such a fiery attitude and turned into almost a puppet afterwards. I love it so much. I can't stop saying how much I loved this.
I truly wish that you had another fic with Watanukis personality like this, but I've read your other and enjoy them just as much. you're an amazing writer. And I hope that even though it's 2015 you haven't stopped. It would be such a disappointment. Maybe one day I'll look and see you've created another story. Thank you for allowing me to enjoy such a well written story.

I loved it! It was a great idea and I'm impressed you wrapped it up so well. The story line was very interesting, I especially loved all the cameo's of other CLAMP works! Fantastic job. I'd love to read more of your works! I hope you write another xxxHolic fanfiction sometime soon! I just love them. Ever since I read Entangled I've been hooked on your writing!

Um. Err - well basically, I've just finished reading this fic the whole through and...(is probably going to be shot by someone for saying this) I wasn't really a fan of some bits of this story tbh...
It's just I couldn't help but feel some of the characters were kinda OOC - Seishirou was I think for example, he isn't the type that gets outwardly obviously furious and swears and barks at people (even when Fuuma ripped Subaru's eye out in front of him), and even Watanuki (though I guess he's been around a whole while) seemed quite Yuuko-ish - especially the way you introduced him and the way he was /literally/ all over Doumeki from the off - that's...not really what Watanuki's like tbh...
I think Fuuma and Kamui probably would've done more as well, based on their personalities - but the story wasn't around them so fair enough I guess.
I think Watanuki was needlessly quite cruel to Subaru - Subaru hadn't done anything wrong, but yet he seemed to taunt him by dangling Doumeki in front of him and almost mocking him places, and then there's the ending which just seems like an extra (and...kinda needless imo) kick in the teeth...
The ending seemed a bit...I dunno, there were quite a few loose ends (?) or maybe I just managed to overlook it _; the Hunter Association split up, but what happened to everyone involved? What happened to Kamui and Fuuma and Seishirou? Did they all die...? Did you put Seiichiro and Subaru together btw? (Also putting him and Fuuma's dad in at the end seemed a bit random, it didn't really bring much to the plot or anything...)
And one last thing, while I'm thinking of it - the 'final battle' seemed a bit almost...anticlimatic :\, maybe I was distracted at the time, but apart from Seishirou getting injured and talking to Subaru, this 'great battle' - I almost missed it it over so quickly...
And the massacre of the Council people. That didn't fit with me either I'm afraid. I didn't like that, it seemed a bit cruel and unneccessary to kill ALL of them but three people...? Not sure I liked that side to Doumeki Watanuki tbh :P
I don't know - for the reasons above, (I mean, I liked the world you created and the general plotline) but there were aspects of it I didn't agree with and just kinda didn't fit with me.
But maybe that's just me being picky and pedantic etc. Maybe I'm just a sucker for "HAPPY ENDINGZ 4 EVRI1 XD!1!111" etc...:P
I haven't read Unnatural Light, but this was an original idea as far as I'm concerned and I liked the concept of it :)
(I'm sorry if I seem like a total bitch and this has managed to turn into a flame O_O if it has, it's totally unintentional - this is just my opinion on the story...)

At some point Kimihiro was too much like Yuuko. I remember he was quite like her at the end of the series, but never quite on the spot. I did enjoyed the story, but the ending kinda left me sad.
| Sachiel Angelo chapter 5 . 4/14/2012
holy! Did Kimihiro just topped Doumeki!
| thesleepless chapter 11 . 4/1/2012
it was a beautiful story :)
i love the idea of doumeki and watanuki being together forever.
i don't think that doumeki is being used by watanuki. it was his destiny to be with him, and it is not like his life were good before. forgetting his past might have been only for his own good after all the grief he withstood.
hope to read more stories like this in the future :)
