Here I am! Leave it to the last chapter and I take this long to review...(lol)
It took me until JUST now actually to finish the chapter. I'd read most of it, then got distracted with a bunch of other things and wasn't gonna review until I read it all, Sooooo...
Yaaaaaay! It's been such an awesome ride reading this story! This chapter gets 5 stars because it's part of the story and the whole story was great right to the end! It was one of my first real good stories on here when I joined. Now the ending...awwwwww it's kinda sad...but still happy! Shadow always feels like he has to do everything alone (minus being in Team Dark). I can imagine another crisis or something happening where Shadow has to come back and/or save Rachel again and her getting real angry at him and saying: "What?! YOU REMEMBERED EVERYTHING THIS WHOLE TIME AND DIDN'T SAY NOTHING?!" Or something like that, which makes me laugh! I'm happy he didn't forget and Rachel's finally back with her family. Sad about her grandfather. Even if he was wrong, it's a shame he'd gotten sick and let himself go like that. Overall you made yourself a great story.
If you want to, are you ever gonna do anymore with this storyline in the future? Like oneshots or somethings? Maybe some that follow the video game's canon. If you want to.
Thanks again for writing this story! It was cool.

When I started this story many years ago, I, for lack of better words, fell in love with it. I saw myself in Rachel... and Shadow. These two and their love for each other got me through moving, my own grandpa's death, and my new life as a city girl. I was never your biggest fan, nor an avid watcher of this story. But like I said before, I did love it, and watching the human and the hedgehog walk away from each other is bringing me to tears as I type.
Thank you, for this incredible story. You are truly one of the best on this website. Good luck, and know that I will never forget this love story.

It took me a stupid-long time to read the end of this ;_; This fic is good. Real good. Like I remember things from the first chapters that I read once, who-knows-how-long-ago. It's that unique! The ending wasn't happy. I adore that, screw deus ex machina! ...Most importantly, I don't think I skimmed at all :) Keep writing! It doesn't matter who reads it or what it's about, but keep sharing the magic :D
| JustAGoose-Feather Quill chapter 36 . 1/5
Wow. This story is actually finished. Though i knew it would end (as all written stories end even if the real ones don't), i didn't want to think about it: i enjoyed reading this story so much!
Sorry i haven't read the released chapters until now, i'm just a big lazy-bum with writing, no matter how enthusiastic my mind will be about ever idea i think of. The writing part is always the hardest for me, probably because i know that i'll be spending an eternity on it. Anyways back to the topic:
This story has certainly inspired me and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The length of each of the chapters, at a glance, brought a certain amount of shock, both the horror kind and the excited-happy kind, as i didn't want to stare at my computer screen for so long, but i wanted the adventure to last as long as possible.
It's hard for me to think that it's taken you four years to write this. I know i'm an absolute shocker with the time lengths that last between my own updates, but to see that someone else has taken more than a year to write such an amazing story, motivates me to keep going, that writing does not take an eternity. I guess it's just something that you've just got to do.
Getting back to the topic:
It's impossible to pick a favourite part. I'll have to read the whole thing a few more times if i'm to determine my top ten scenes. What really kept me reading was a few big things:
1. The way you've written the story. it was detailed, yet not overly so that it became a tid-bit boring. The vocabulary range and use of similies and such, ensured that wasn't reading the same thing. It helped a great deal to keep your story different from most other stories that have similar general plot lines regarding Shadow (mine own included).
2. The in-character depths. too many writers tend to tweak an already-made character's character, making them someone else and unrecognisable. You not only kept each of the existing characters in character, but did an amazing development that SEGA themselves should have gone into (and probably might have if they'd not changed to the new Sonic Boom series). I'm impressed with the character development you had through out the story, and to have still kept the characters as themselves can be an irritating thing to accomplish (for me in particular... or perhaps just me if no one else). Reading this story didn't feel like i was reading another Sonic Fanfic. I don't know how to word it so i won't lest i do so in a way that comes out in an over-the-top melodrama-style.
3. The plot line originality. Although there are quite a few Shadow romance fictions on this website (mine own included) a lot of them tend to be too expected and cliche. You, however, have succeeded in keeping us readers thrown off balance by every twist, in a volcanic-sounding laughter with the humour and unexpected, yet understandable, actions of the different characters, Rachel in particular.
4. Your OC was original and relatable. Being put in such a situation, who knows how anyone might actually act (i wonder how often kissing would come up :D). Rachel's personality, her actions/reactions to what ever Shadow did and her thoughts were understandable and just suited her so well. I will sometimes cringe at a wacky character who just goes along with everything, but i was completely comfortable when reading about Rachel. She was different yet she certainly provided much of the best drama parts of this story.
As a rating it is a definite 5 out of 5. If there was anything that i would have wanted differently, or would have changed it would only be halving a few of the chapters into two parts...and the swearing, though in certain parts it was just PERFECT!
My own admiration for Shadow is very much similar to your own (and i too cringe at things i used to think); i find myself drawn to his character mostly because of the mystery that surrounds him. Of all the Sonic characters, i feel that his actions and thoughts are both expected of his character, yet when i think i've got a better grasp of his personality, he surprises me with another action. I find his character to be expected, yet his actions unpredictable. I suppose that is what gives him first place in my head. I think SEGA left too much of him out of the story. I feel like it's up to us writers to figure out what motivates him, after moving on from Maria i feel like he's been left out a bit too much.
Anyways, if you skimmed through half of this i don't blame you. I didn't plan on writing so much. I guess once i've started i can't stop.
I've greatly enjoyed reading this, as i'm sure you picked up. That ending was brilliant, especially those last few lines. Brilliant i say! I would love to read a brief scene in the future of this story. Rachel made me think that he's really gone forever, but Shadow makes me think that he might return. Should he end up doing so, i'd love to see the reunion, however it may go.
Right. I'm stopping now.
Again, it's been a great pleasure reading your story and i hope to read more like it again.
As i've always said:

I remember seeing this story being updated when it was just beginning, but for some reason I never read it right away. I think I started reading this when it was around ten or so chapters. I loved reading the journey between Rachel and Shadow, and Rachel herself is an amazing character. Many people in and outside the Sonic fandom judge Sonic OCs (For good reasons most of the time), but if someone told me all Sonic OCs are terrible I would point them to this fanfiction. (And a few of my own OCs XD)
Out of all the Sonic fanfiction I have followed/favorited over the years this was the only one I kept up with, and at some point I will go back and reread this story from the beginning.
I hope you have a fantastic new year and I cannot wait to see what you come up with in the future.

Wow, it's been 3 years huh? That is crazy. Thank you for writing this journey we've been through. It was always a pleasure seeing this story updated and seeing this story come to its satisfying conclusion brings good feels too.
I don't think I can add here what I (in my few reviews) or anyone else said. I highly enjoyed this story; loved how you wrote Eggman, loved the POVs, loved how you didn't describe Rachel but everything in the world around her. I don't think I noticed that for a few chapters. Idk if you ever described what she looked like but I always imagined her as a long haired brunette.
Anyway, this is an amazing story that I'm glad I read.
Good luck in your future endeavors & keep on keepin on. Merry -belated- Christmas and have a happy New year.
p.s. Here's a basket of muffins. One is comes with the review, the rest are for completing your fix.

Sorry I'm late!
Congratulations on finishing the story! :D Knowing Shadow, he's not returning for a LONG time at least, but no one will ever forget him.

Amazing story, brought a tear to my eye! Hope they do end up meeting again, it'd be a lovely sequel xxxxx

I can't believe this story is over. It was one of the first fanfic I ever read. I think I was 15, such a long time ago. I feel like I grew with this story. I will never forget this fanfic. Its left an imprint on my heart and it will always be one of the best fanfics I have ever read. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication. As a fellow writer I know how hard it can be to keep writing, and updating but all your hard work was worth it. I can't wait to read any future story you write.

I am rendered speechless.
This story has been incredible to read since the very beginning. Such an intricate plot, such immense character development! I have to say, this has been one of the most intriguing fanfictions I've ever read. I'm having such a hard time believing that three years later, this story has come to such an astounding conclusion. The nostalgia is almost overwhelming, as I reflect upon my very first encounter with this story and upon the completion of this final chapter.
And that last chapter, though! I read it (and reread it multiple times) about five hours ago, and I'm still not over the initial shock and immense waves of feels that came over me. I actually cried upon reading it! I've been reading fanfictions for years, and only three have actually made me shed tears. This is definitely one of them. Absolutely amazing.
All in all, I just wanted to express how great this story is, and how fantastic of an author you are. Reading this story has been quite the journey, and I'm glad I have been able to partake in it all the way to its stunning conclusion. :)

OH MY GGGGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDD I CANT BELIEVE THAT ADTER ALL THIS TIME THIS STORY IS ACTUALLY OVER LIKE WHAT HOLY SHIT
It's a very satisfying ending, that's for sure. Except...wasn't shadow only staying away because he wouldn't remember her? If he does, then why isn't he with her? Her family? Because of everyone else? I don't get it...
Wow...still can't believe that this story is finally over. It's crazy, I started reading it forever ago yknow? Nuts...
It's been a great ride, this story was amazing! I wish my stories could be as perfect and loved as yours here is, I'm jealous lol

Of course you're not trash! The fact that you made this note means you're not. Things got busy at times throughout making this whole story, but you never gave it up or let it get you down and trucked through it! That's part of what makes a good author!
So Looking forward to the next (long, YAY) chapter and so happy it won't be over just yet!
Review you soon.

| clueless1164 chapter 34 . 12/18/2014
I just wanted to say that I am so happy to hear that you haven't given up on this story. I admit I was slightly starting to doubt that you'd come back and finish it but thank you for telling us that you are :) I started reading this story about 2 or 3 years ago and I always looked forward to each and every update. I even reread every chapter that was up so that the story would be fresh in my mind when I finally read the updated chapter xD so please, do your best, don't hurry (we can wait, and those who can't can suck it xD) I'm sad that's it's ending but I hope it's an awesome ending :) thank you for coming up with such an awesome freaking story, it's beautiful xD
