Oh. my god! This was so sweet and beautiful. I really felt the love there.
| Yoko Fujioka chapter 1 . 10/10/2013
I have to say that this was literally written like a professional book, I could not even practically see the scenes , but I could even smell the coffee, hear the boy's voices, everything. I really and seriously felt like I was there, watching a movie instead of reading ebony words on a blank page.
The characters were so realistic, too, I loved the way they interacted, and the way you skipped between the different events in Matthew's life with fluid ease. :)
As a hopeless romantic, I kinda wish the ending had been more fluffy, but I guess that doesn't really fit them or the way this is written, so beggars can't be choosers XDD

I cannot tell you how much i absolutely love this story. I first read this ages ago. And i have read it so many times after i can't even remember. I pretty much know this by heart, but i still like to go back and read. One of my favourite EngCan stories ever.

You never cease to amaze me in everything you've written. Honestly, from the description to the characterization, you always get it spot on. Lovely story, as always :)

This had a very realistic view on life, and you showed the characters' dimensions so well! This was beautiful, really! X3

There needs to be mooore of this pairing

Reading this again, even seven months later, hasn't changed my views of this story at all.
It's absolutely amazing, with a stunning storyline and wonderful characters.
Sure, they're kinda pre-made, but you make them unique.
Description played a big role with that. Take burnt coffee and sweat for example; appealing to a readers senses is a wonderful thing. You also describe the cafe amazingly, giving it character and a cozy, homey feel.
I also love Matthew's character growth, from quite shy college freshman, to basically graduate/young adult, keeping his.. almost childish atmosphere in tact.
Basically, God we need more writers like you, and I really need sleep, because it's 12:23 and I have a Chem test tomorrow.

...damn it. Two fics in and I'm already shipping this pair like you wouldn't believe.
BARISTA AUs WILL NEVER GET OLD. I love barista AUs. Um. You've also managed to make me quite hungry (and thirsty!) and I wish I'd had Arthur helping me with calculus. Maybe then I wouldn't have flunked it in high school, ha ha.
But, um, yes. I love this. The slow and natural progression of their relationship, yes. And coffee shop AUs are my favorite thing in the world, so. You are quite possibly my favorite person in the world at this moment :D

EFF YEAH! Happy CanUK endings are so rare -like sososo rare- I'm going to put this on a golden pedestal as the 1st CanUK fanfic I've ever read to leave me d'aww-ingly satisfied
| Jenn chapter 1 . 7/29/2011
That was amazing. Fluffy without being corny and overly sweet.
You reminded me about a really lovely English-style chocolate house (I don't know the proper English name. They served hot chocolate there.) in my city. Unfortunately it was closed because the city council stuck its nose in there with the city development plan as a sorry excuse. The woman who created the cafe had been promised some time before that she'd be able to buy the place. So far it had been rented. And then they sprang this on her.
I fell in love with that place. So did many others.

(please excuse my all caps spasm) OH MY GOD, I LOVE THIS. You have combined my love of coffee shops and maple tea/ ukcan! I LOVED it!You made it a one shot, but there was still an actual story to it. Arthur and Matthew seem very human, and their emotions realistic and powerful. I really honestly enjoyed it. I love it enough to want to turn it into a doujin.
May I please turn it into a doujin if i credit you? ( QQ please)
