|Reviews for The Promise: A Tasuki and Miaka Love Story|
| Aeliel chapter 6 . 2/4
I just started rereading your story and I wanted to mention, I noticed your little easter egg for Tasuki's song Setsunakutemo...Zutto. Love it! I actually have that song on my Ipod -.
Can't wait for your new chapters. It's been about 7 years but I'm still as intregued as when I first read it :)

This is such a great story...the best fanfic I have ever read. Has a few grammatical errors, but it still GREAT! I do hope that you continue and I look forward to reading the rest of this story.

I really like where ur taking this story! I think its clever to have Miaka become a "Priestess of the Four Gods". More than that, I think you're approaching it MUCH better than i've seen others try to do it. The way you're going about it seems MUCH more believable. Others that i've seen try to make up OCs to take the role...and never making as much sense as it should...
But YOU! D
Ur presentation is excellent! So i definitely look forward to whats to come!
P.S As always, love the humorous moments!

You already know how amazing i think you are X3
But what i havent pointed out yet is how well you do at 1.) Humor. You insert some really humorous moments and so nicely! I really laughed when Tasuki pretended to be Hotohori XD
2.) I'm quite jealous with how you describe people's physical features. The way you described Miaka and Tasuki...man...when i describe people, it just doesnt paint as clear a picture as urs. How do you do it? I know we all look at people differently, but you do it so expertly and poetically!
Gyahhhh! I have so much to learn!
Wonderfully written chapter as always Senpai!

This chapter made me really disappointed with Taka. I understand what he's trying to do, and I guess its admirable, but i can't believe that he's not taking Miaka's feelings into account! Makes me wanna go over there and chop him in the head and slap him around a bit.
Miaka needs to learn to break free and follow her heart!
You did a wonderful job as always Senpai of showing the heavy emotions that Miaka and the others have. And I like where you took Miaka and how she's spent her life since her time in the book. And I appreciate how you handled Tetsuya as well. I feel like he and Keisuke aren't appreciated as much as they need to be. And i cant help but wonder if Tetsuya's hypothesis was right about whether or not Taka wanted to honestly be by himself for a while...hmm...
I look forward to her return into the universe of the four gods!

Even by this first chapter, I'm amazed by ur colorful language and how it paints such an image! You are wonderful at description and everything. Idk...its kind of hard to describe for me. Srry I cant put all my amazement into words, just know that I think you're a really talented writer and I'm so happy to be learning from you!
I decided to start reading this story so that i may be further inspired fore LH5W. I feel as if it will really help me! And once again, though I REALLY can't stand the Tasuki x Miaka pairing, I'm willing to bite through it so that i can observe the wonderful writing style, how you tell a story, and how you handle the characters. I look forward to the ride!
Until next chapter senpai! Keep up the great work!

I'm so glad to hear you'll be updating your stories again this year! I've been waiting a very long time for this and am so excited that I had to go and make sure my story alerts are set haha 3

I've read and re-read this story several times since you released it, it truly is amazing, and I hope you will continue regardless of how long it takes. You've laid things out beautifully. I would like to point out I have found a few typos through out the story if that concerns you but I will over look them if you continue _. Best of luck.

Hay. I've just discovered a love for tasuki and miaka together and I must say that your story and tale of them are my favorite! I love that you made Yui a voice of reason. and I adore the dvelopment of Tasuki and Miaka's relationship! There were multiple times that I had to set this down and just squeeee from glee. I couldn't get enough of this, so I read this whole thing straight thorugh, and it's now 4 AM, lol. I was also really excited to see on your user profile that your still working on this, even though there hasn't been an official update since '07 D this gives me so much hope since there are so few good writers still active with this pairing. And considering the restrictions at , I want you to know that if you decided to post an a different venus (like LJ, AO3 or any number of other sites) that I am more than willing to follow and would just like a heads up on where to find your stories D
Thank you so much for writing this, I have enjoyed it so much thus far and am ever hopeful that you will finish it one day :)

This review is so overdue, and I apologize for that. I've been a reading your amazing stories for years now, and also remember speaking with you years ago through email occasionally, though I can't remember the name I went under then.
My point being, I am still a huge fan of your work, and was delighted to see that you are still working on these stories. Namely the FY ones, as it has remained my favorite anime series. I've always been a big fan of Tasuki and Miaka, and I've yet to find another author that could capture them as well as you always have.
I could keep going on, but in short, I hope to see new chapters soon because I've always loved your work and can't wait to see where you're going to take us.

ok, this has got to be one of my absolute favorites. I could beg and throw a temper and whine but instead I'll just ask. please...update?
| Kneazle chapter 26 . 6/28/2012
It must have been ages since I last read this (and apparently reviewed chapter 27) - I leave it on my favourites so that I can go back and reread bits; I did "Leather and Lace" the other day earlier this week - but imagine my surprise that as I'm reading it, some sentences are more polished, there's more details added and some things are changed! Did you go through your chapters and edit them?
I also wanted to say how much I love your characters. It's very easy to slip into bashing someone when you want to change the canon of an anime, or in the fandom I predominantly hang out in, Harry Potter, but you manage to show that all your characters- good and bad - happen to have two faces. They all have their high moments and their low moments, and because of that they always seem far more *real*.
I truly do hope a new chapter is on its way, if only because it took 26 chapters to get into the start of the story! If not, I completely understand that real life and familial obligations are far more important than that of fanfiction, however much we enjoy writing and reading it for our own pleasure and escapism. I hope you take away from this review how much this reader enjoys your work, your writing style, and your characters and that if you're not going to update this - hell, maybe you've got a published story out there I can devour instead? :D
