Yaaaay! Natsuki kissed Shizuru. :) Even though it was a one shot, I could feel the anxiety and intensity. Great story.

This story has left me practically speechless.
For a narrative with such power and art, it's simplicity is astounding. Yet it is that same brevity and plainness that makes this work so powerful. I never imagined that such a heartwarming and soul-stirring exchange of emotions could happen in the few minutes that the damned director of Mai-Hime decided to stop the ShizNat brodcast.
There is really no better example of Natsuki's character development than this masterpiece. The last line in particular really opened my eyes to the budding romance after Shizuru's graduation and the HiME Festival/Carnival, which should take place immediately given our protagonists' characters.
Other fanfics tend to start "future-fics" a few days after the anime ending, claiming that Natsuki totally pushed aside Shizuru's latent and exposed emotions for a rather decent amount of time. That always seemed like a stretch to me, because Natsuki of all people values Shizuru's feelings above all else; in no case would prolong the turmoil in her best friend's heart, and thus she would've given at least a sign of hope, indicating that she's trying, to her most treasured person.
In any case, I'm surprised that this story is rather unknown. (Based on the number of reviews and favorites.) You are quite the renowned author so I would think that the readers/subscribers of your other fanfics would read this as well. Perhaps it's brevity scared them off. Well, they're missing out. :)

My, it seems all Latin teachers are quite fun. Back at school we were studying the language with an old granny, ex-doctor. She seriously adored Latin and always yelled at us something like "Lingua latina non penis canina est!" when we weren't doing our best or paying attention (sorry, if I wrote it wrong, it was years ago). Ah, good times
Considering the story itself, I'd always find your writing style fascinating. As if I'm really observing happening scene from not so far away, but not feeling as a third wheel at the same time. And I always thought that Shizuru would leave Fuuka (or at least try to do so), so this is "my type" of fanfiction.

It's always great to revisit, re-imagine and rewrite their relationship and you did a heart-wrenching yet heart-warming twist to it.
Thanks for writing!
