Reviews for Happenstance
appletree98 chapter 16 . 4/8/2013
I'm so confused right now. The last three chapters completely messed up my head; I am not even sure what exactly happened... I don't even know who died for sure. Who got the happy ending? I'm not going to lie, I was totally waiting for a happy ending. I did not see that coming from Matthew. I can't find Sacrasmus or Journey, I was hoping they'd help.

In the last line he said thank you Alfred. Do you mean Arthur?
Summerssevenseas chapter 4 . 1/27/2013
Matthew said Alfred instead of Arthur. Is that a typing mistake or...? I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK OF IT! *Cries in corner*

Wow, this was a fantastic story! All the twists and turns and WHAM!S
I love how you wrote everyone I feel like you really explored the darker side of Matthew and Arthur's characters and I love that.

Love it so far. When they said "A Canadian journey!" I died laughing cause I could totally see that. Good detail

*continues to laugh at the canadaian related things that drunk al and Arthur said*

:D *looking forward to read the rest now*

Okay. So I was extremely stupid in reading this fic just before bed time. Because now I am so befuddled and enamored and I don't even know to even consider sleep now, because I need to read everything else. And and. Yeah. This fic says everything that I ever wanted to say about life, and more. So, er. Thank you. Thank you for writing this. This fic is making me think differently.

Weeee excellent

ok i went to my email and saw "(new chapter) happenstance: chapter 16" or whatever its s'pposed to say and my mind exploded a little. just a little. at first i was like, "le fudge? another chapter? i thought it's done? confuzlledddd _ " and then i read it and went, "oh yeaaaah they did mention a proposal! :D"

i didnt think he'd propose like that tho. ya know, with a "alfred was going to do this but..." etc etc etc. and i also think gilbert was absolutely thrilled with matthews plan of thinking they're a couple. lol matthews like, supah sneaky and devious. its interesting :)

what else to say...oh yeah! i spazzed in my bedroom when it was like, "al's not dying from the accident. he's dying from lung cancer."

my mind was brain fudged and i became confused. again. thanks man. i appreciate the brain twists ur giving me. awesome.

again, i was glad this chapter was posted for i was curious as to how that proposal went down ;D

My most favoritist story *hearts*

adieu

lin :D

I finished this fic.

Two words for you:

DA FUQ?

That is some major, major mindfuck. The hints strewn across the chapters make me question everything! It's good to read a fic where the story keeps me thinking; it makes for a very suspenseful read, because I never know whoever they mutually know will show up, or the next time Matthew disappears again.

One thing though, is the fact that there's too much backstory. Another way of phrasing this would be that the backstory is somewhere else entirely, as in another fanfiction, which makes the story too confusing at one point. Maybe this is how you create your mindfucks, but too much and the story gets troublesome. For me, I actually find that very annoying, because to admit it, I'm arrogant to an extent and don't like it when I don't understand something fully.

So a suggestion would be to sum up small backstories and include them as chapters in the fic.

On another note, your writing is very easy to read; hardly any spelling errors, and the scarce grammar misuse of then and than.

Please, write on! OuO/

To tell you the truth, the only reason why I ever clicked on this was because I wanted to read a CA/UK fic. I didn't expect this...

I saw very little grammar or spelling errors, so I applaud you for that. Your characters were a bit occ at times, but not so much that it ruined the story. The only thing that got me is that some things didn't make that much since. I didn't understand how Russia and Ukraine fit into all of this, if Canada was engaged to America, then how was Russia America's boyfriend? Another thing I didn't get was what Liechtenstein was talking about that involved Belarus, Korea and Japan. Maybe I had skipped over something when I was reading.

Other than that, the story as a whole was a good, there were a bunch of nice, suspenseful twists that I personally didn't see coming.

And I believe that this is the best, not one of the best, ending I have ever read in my live for a story, which is really saying something. If I had the ability to change the ending, I wouldn't even think about touching it.

O hi, I just read this entire story in one go! /sips coffee

Okay well it's a little difficult for me to properly assess all of my thoughts since I did just finish reading the whole thing and I'm terrible with words, so I hope this review makes at least a little sense.

Sorry, I'm a little speechless, actually. I can't get over how you've managed to weave together so many stories and how everyone played a decisive role in Arthur and Matthew's journey. The whole setup was perfect and you didn't overplay it imo. I especially loved how you didn't force the side stories, but kept everything at a minimum and left clues for us to find (really loved them, thanks!).

I enjoyed being mindfucked (hehee), especially at the part where it's revealed that Happenstance is actually written by Arthur himself, and then Matthew filling in the missing links... so much love for that. However, the end left a few gaps in the story, and left me unsatisfied. Why would Arthur want to change the ending of their journey? Does he even know what really happened? How much does he actually know? Yet I can't deny that I thoroughly enjoyed the unreliable narrative.

Or maybe I missed something, lol.

There's actually a lot more I want to say about this story but then I'd just ramble... so in short, I love your story and your style, and this is probably my fave fic now.

I really enjoyed the ride, thank you THANK YOU for sharing this lovely story!

The ending ruined the whole story for me.

I actually came to read this as a crack!fic for England and Canada, which is what I was hoping for.

Lovely twist, but I hate AmeriCan. So.. When I found out, I went to the alternate ending and felt even worse. I wanted to click away from the story, but I thought of saying this before I went.

Sorry, but the AmeriCan ruined the whole story for me- Not to mention you confused the hell out of me in some parts.

I also hate the way everyone's always blaming England for everything, it seems unfair on him- After all, America should've taken responsibility too, and if they knew they were going to get that drunk, then somebody should've gone with them.

Not much more to say other than I'm not too fond of this story anymore. :U.

/leave.
