I absolutely adore this story! Don't get me wrong, I love reading fics with protective!Ichigo and/or weaker/shyer!Ukitake, but this is such a nice change of pace! I love how you included his illness without making it into "OMG. STOP THE FIC. HE'S DYING" drama. You kept it in mind so it was still there while not making it a huge deal. Also, I love Ichigo's sarcastic attitude! I feel like there's not enough fics out there that keep in mind that Ichigo is a TEENAGER. He's bound to be angsty and frustrated with all this crazy stuff going on! Just..thank you, for all of the consideration and time you obviously put into this! It has been totally appreciated! *reads again*

I can't seem to keep my hands off this story. Started reading it for the third time now Every few months I have that urge to refresh my memory of it and it didn't disappoint me even once yet :) And here comes another huge thank you for writing it!

I love this story, it was so fucked up , sensual, colorful worded, and just plain sexy. I really loved the way you portray Ichigo as a bit messed up, it was a new perspective and you did it really well. This was a masterpiece. And, uh, I'm the hundredth reviewer! Yay! Congratulations on getting a hundred reviews. 3

After about the gazillionth time reading through this fic the guilt finally got to me and I just had to review.
I absolutely adore this fic, it's one that I keep coming back to and find myself enjoying all the more each time. Honestly, I don't know how this hasn't got a thousand reviews because the writing certainly deserves that!
I love your writing style, it's really captivating and almost mysterious, and the first time I read this really made me intrigued with what was going on in Ukitake's head. The way you write the characters is a breath of fresh air and has a really lovely balance.
I decided to review on this one rather than the Ukitake sequel because I really want to see this get to at least a hundred views so more people can notice and read this wonderful story. The last two lines of Ukitake's oneshot sequel describes my view on this fic: I'm completely addicted and I always have to return to it because it's fabulous!
Can't wait to see the sequel! Try not to keep us waiting too long ;)

This was one of the sexiest stories I've ever read. There's really nothing more I can say about it. Just sooooooo sexy...

I don’t review stories often, but this one has moved me so much that I couldn't resist. I had planned to review it the night I finished reading, but I
Upon seeing the Yaoi warning, I was going to handle it as I often handle the stories of this genre - simply skip all the pre-Yaoi plot and go straight for the “cream”. Yet this story got me hooked from the very first sentences… Your style is so smooth and flowing, effortless to read and follow, yet really capturing.
I absolutely adored how you interpreted and developed Ukitake’s personality. We haven’t seen much of him in the series, aside from his duties as a Captain, we have no idea what he is like in everyday life. I would never have tried to see him as a “Fucking Rocstar”, or Apocalyptica-type music lover, or even a dancer before, but now it just seems to fit him so perfectly. You portrayed him in a completely different light than most writers of this fandom, and I liked it a lot.
Dialogues seem to be your strongest side. Besides getting a kick out of of their battle of wits (Ichigo was doomed to lose here…), I loved the contrast between Ichigo’s rough, very teenage-like wording and Ukitake’s sophisticated speech. Maybe a bit too sophisticated, but I certainly didn’t mind.
Only one drawback… You could probably have put more variety into Ichigo’s language. I have nothing against “fucks” and “shits” at all, they’re a great spice when used adequately, but seeing in every second sentence kind of ruins it… not for me personally, but stylistically. “Fondly” and “it’s whatever” were a bit overused too, but these minors things get lost in this overall high-quality writing.
Needless to say, I loved the passion scenes too. Your attention to details - stroking thumb, the hips, the lashes - makes it ever more fascinating. I tried hard not to see it all in my head - for my own sanity. Even a person who have never heard of Bleach could fall in love with this certain Taichou after reading this!
The ending is ok. Well, it’s probably fitting, it only annoyed me a bit because I always disliked Kiyone and Sentaro. Trust them to crush Ichigo’s hopes of getting… ahem.
Anyway, great job! One of the best stories I've read in a while :) Please keep writing

I stumbled across this story by accident and I read it, I have to say this was the most beautiful story I have ever read. A round of applause with a standing ovation to you.

I truly admire people that can write such a small time-frame and still make their stories interesting. You did a fabulous job, especially making such ordinary things seem so extraordinary. Can't wait for the sequel!

That made my day complete. i'm looking forward to both the one-shot and the sequel. you have such a graet ability to write emotions and situations.
