I'm really glad you wrote all these stories about these two, because Tsuruko is my favorite character. I like how you included real scenes along with made up scenes, along with scenes told from Tsuruko's perspective, all blended together into a perfect patchwork quilt with no fraying edges, no questions and empty spaces.

This is probably one of the few anime which made me shed anything close to tears of sorrow for the characters, and this fic in particular does a good job of making me grin... In a weird mix of relief, sadness, and nostalgia that I can't put my finger on.
I like the way you time skip through the years, showing the changes and the things that will never really change. The use of words borders on poetic and honestly, I want to read more works with this kind of rhythm and feeling in them. You describe them well, and despite it being quite awhile since I watched the anime I'm able to remember who they are just by reading. (Not sure if this serves as a compliment or not though. OTL)
Not sure if this is an error or just my pitiful grasp on the English language, but what do you mean by 'and Tsuruko looks at him looking her.' Is it meant to be looking *at* her? (Second last chunk of text)

You did another Anohana Yukiatsu/Tsuruko story. This is brilliant stuff, recounting some of the scenes from Anohana while adding a few of your own that are memorable and can be most likely happen if we had more Anohana episodes. I don't know about the rest of your stories, but thundercow, you are a brilliant writer for Anohana; you capture the characters so well and if I could write as well as you could, I would be over the moon. I do prefer your other story just a tiny bit more but this... this is gold.

Beautiful. Tsuruko & Yukiatsu really have a complicated relationship and I think you captured that perfectly well. Sometimes, I wonder how Yukiatsu never noticed Tsuruko's feelings, especially since he's so smart.

"It's not you."
Oh my god, that hurt a lot.
I love the way you describe/write. It feels 'natural' and clear (if that makes sense) and you can actually understand what Tsuruko feels. Aaaaah, i love it. I love this very much.

Just finished watching Ano Hana and this piece tugged all of my heart strings. This is so beautifully written!

(i keep favoriting your stories, ah)
i agree with you that these two are amazing together! i really liked your chronicling of their years of school together after what happened, and, ugh, the way you wrote their interacti throughout and then that little paragraph about the rest of the spb made me have anohana feels all over again. brilliant work, as always, thundercow!

I don't even know what anime/manga you're writing about, but your description and prose make it easy for me to understand. It's beautiful, absolutely beautiful.

amazing story! I can really imagine them being like that with each other when younger. And Tsuruko really understands Yukiatsu as you described! great work!

I love how you showed Tsuruko's emotions in your story. I don't know what to say anymore except you really did a good job conveying Tsuruko and Yukiatsu in your stories. Tsuruko's always been my favorite character in AnoHana. I love how she keeps her feelings bottled inside her yet manages to maintain a straight face. She's strong yet weak. You showed her quite well, beautifully.

You deserve a pat on the back for making me favourite this story only halfway through. Brilliant! I love it. Really liked how you did the little scenes and the ending just made such a huge impact because of the details and moments of Tsuruko and Yukiatsu was building up from the start. And I think the way you depicted Tsuruko was just amazing.
Even though it took Yukiatsu awhile, I'm still glad he finally opened his eyes and noticed Tsuruko. I was just dying when I watched Tsuruko fade away sadly in the anime.
