| SunBinamra chapter 9 . 6/19
I have to agree with JoTerry and say this story was "frustrating and addictive at the same time." It was painful to see Ichigo and Rukia fall so far (and part of me was wishing for someone - namely Uryuu - to confront Rukia at some point...) but somehow I couldn't stop reading. You are an incredible writer to be able to pull out so many feelings from your readers. Well done!
| JoTerry chapter 9 . 10/9/2014
This story was frustrating and addictive at the same time. I was hoping for a different, if not happier ending even though I knew fully well somewhere along the line that you never meant for it to go that way. Everyone was totally out of character except for Renji and Rangiku. It was heart wrenching. Somewhere in the middle of it, I was actually truly pissed off at where the story was heading. It was so cruel. You made it sound so frighteningly real that I swear this was written based on first hand experience. Was it?

intense is the word. i'm really impressed with this-the scope of the story, the reality and vulnerability of it, the fact that you tackled really difficult emotional breakdowns. as an ichiruki shipper, it's painful, but for people who have experience with these kinds of relationships, it's interesting to see it played out with our ship (another facet, i guess). thank you for this story. however, i do crave a golden epilogue (ashamedly). i know at this point ichigo and rukia have gotten passed what happened between them, but i'd like to see ichigo as a wiser, happier man looking back on that time "in his youth." it almost feels like it's just not enough to know he can survive, i kinda want to know he can go on to live a full and happy life. who knows, maybe get nel back? is that too much past? either way, the story touched me. thanks again. and keep writing!

Fuckin' intense, man. Awesome job!
| Fenris Jin chapter 4 . 5/31/2013
Enrique Iglesias isn't gay? Really? But I already burned down all his posters!Oh gawd, my prized and gold framed centerpiece! NOOO! T_T.. LOL
Yeah, so Rukia is still a total female dog.. I don't know how she's supposed to deserve Ichigo in this fic. Hrm.. I always believe in karma.. but as much as how Rukia has been a terrible wreck in this story, I can't bring myself to read more of her cruelty.. nor her karma. So, I guess this is my stop. Thanks for the read! :)
| Fenris Jin chapter 3 . 5/31/2013
Oh my goodness, Rukia was such a female dog! I don't know if I can take more of this attitude from her.. T_T

Rukia is being plenty mean to Ichigo. Can't we all just be uhh.. lovers? LOL
| Fenris Jin chapter 1 . 5/31/2013
Uryuu was such an evil bastard.. XD, Pranking a drunk man.. and he was supposed to be the reasonable kind? LOL
Hmm.. Quite an open relationship they have. To have openly admit such a thing.. This is not quite the normal route. I think I like it! :)

That was an amazing tale. It's such an compelling story that questions our world, and tests the true meaning of loyalty and friendship. With the pressure of everyday life, it's a spellbinding story that catches your soul and tugs on your heart.
You really captivated your audience, and probably made more than a few of them cry. I'm extremely impressed, and so very proud of you.
Thank you for writing probably the best Bleach fanfiction I have, and/or will ever read. :)

... I'm trying so hard not to cry over this, and failing so miserably...
How I got so emotionally involved with this story, I'll never know, but I did.
and the end is just... finished, yet it isn't. I've come to learn a story ends either with a happy end, or with the main character dying. this however... it's not finished, in the sense of his life is all there. and he wants to live it. and thats it. finished in itself.
I don't know, I'm confused, I'm touched, I don't know what to feel. ...they love each other, and they learn to let go. Is that really enough? learning to survive it?
I dunno, it seems Ichigo doesn't either, though he's obviously coming stronger out of it... ah, I don't know what to think.
Maybe I have to calm down first... and yah, that's a first, having to calm down from a story.
thank you for writing this. I'll certainly never forget this story, it seriously touched something in me, related in a few ways to me... so yes, thank you.

I have a love/hate feeling for your story (I'm a very contradicting person lol) Didn't really like it much at the beginning (mainly b/c of rukia's character) But your writing kept me intrigue and I fell in love with your story when reading the final chap!
Never had I read a story (or book) that I related to (emotionally) so much that it brought me to tears. Your last chap spoke truth and it hit me about my life. So thank you for this brilliant story.
Btw...if there's another review under the same username, my bad and to make it short touch screen phones are a bitch!
