Just wanted to say I really like your story and would love it very much if you would continue on with it. :)
It's a very rare and nice read on Atobe and an OC!

This story is as good as an oc fanfic can get. Searching for good atobexoc fanfics is really hard. Somehow,although the sequence of events is a little confusing,the writing is so managed to make all the non oc characters n character, and Risa and Aiko aren't Mary-Sues as well. I hope you will continue this story . :)

Atobe and Risa should just end up together (again)!

Hmm...I think I'm still confused about why they broke up in the first place... I hope they get back together though!

That was great! Amazing, even! Fantabulous! Yes, I just made up a word. I really enjoyed the flashbacks to show their relationship. Or what their relationship WAS when they had a relationship of the romantic kind. My tummy felt all squelchy when I was reading the part when they broke up, when he forgot his birthday and other parts. IS THIS SQUELCHINESS INTENTIONAL ON YOUR PART? I get it when you say you like to have readers realize things on their own. One of my pet peeves are writers explaining important things or (this may seem a little obnoxious of me) readers asking about important things.
I was a little confused between what was happening at certain parts, but I think it's due to the fact that the characters are practising a lot of... introspection. Is that the word? Anyway, it's all in their mind. I imagine for me to comprehend it, I would have to BE the Atobe or BE the Risa since it's their thoughts while you've written little actions or explained anything. At least, that's what it seems to me. I like that, though it IS confusing because my reading comprehension is little to no good. _
This may be due to the fact that I read all the chapters late at night with my vision going blurry or because of my lack of reading comprehension, but if I'm right, I can't believe that Risa didn't make it for starters because she was worried for Atobe. ): I am quite sad to hear that and I'm hoping you somehow get her into the starters, no matter how cliched it would be to do so!
Thanks for writing and good luck with the next chapter.

I've always like this fanfic of yours but since I haven't visited it in so long, I thought you haven't updated yet. And so, I finished reading it up to the latest chapter awhile ago.
It makes me cry. Perhaps because I can somehow relate to the situations. But, really, you're doing a great job. Keep it up and please update soon!
Tell me. Tell me that this is going to be a happy ending. Please!

Hello! Just wanna tell you that the story is really good, but I do sometimes get confused in the earlier chapters when it goes on the flashbacks. And I do hope you find the time to update regularly. Thank you and goodluck! :)

Interesting. I like Fuji's role in the story - it really fits his character very well.
I have to admit though, this chapter seemed a little confusing jumping back and forth so much. Then again, it might have been because I haven't read the story for so long that I've kind of forgotten what had happened previously. Nevertheless, it was still a decent chapter.
I'm looking forward to more!

...oh dear. Risa what now?
| No-thats-not-my-name chapter 9 . 5/27/2012
I am totally loving this story! I'm sorry if I haven't reviewed much, but I've been following since chapter 4 and I have to say I adore every minute I spend reading it. Great chapter! Please update soon?

Right now, they seem to be going around in circles...love never did come easy, especially with Atobe, eh?
| sh4dee chapter 8 . 4/20/2012
Interesting - this seemed a bit of an "in between" chapter where there wasn't much in terms of development of either the plot or the characters. I can see how you planted seeds for later development though with Aiko's funny mistake.
I actually quite like the idea of cutting flashbacks out later on. It would be stupid to have them going on forever because you've got to get back to the present eventually! Randomly having flashbacks isn't necessarily a bad idea either, but I think whether or not it turns out successful will depend heavily on how well you write them and integrate them into relevant parts of the story.

ahhhhhhh new chapter! :D
- OMG ATOBE YOU FORGOT HER BIRTHDAY
- these flashbacks are so heart breaking TT_TT I'm really enjoying them though! I'll miss reading them 8( but I think small snippets of their relationship would be cute as well, though they might not fit in as well with the flow? I think they'd work best if they somehow relate to the main storyline, but it's too early to say anything I guess xD I look forward to how things will unfold though :D
- also I love Oshitari's role in all this lol :D and Fuji's small part!
- HAHAHAHA AIKO'S "WHY WOULD I EVER WANT TO DATE HIM?" AHAHAHA. I'm really liking Aiko's character too, she seems like a great best friend :D
thank you for updating, I look forward to the next chapter! 8)

Haven't finished reading everything yet, but I thought I should comment after seeing your author's note at the end:
- No, chapters can never get too long ) The longer the better (my opinion only, of course)
- Making sure the number of OCs doesn't get out of hand is definitely a good idea, but it's still ok at the moment. I'm still following the story fine.
- Chapters 2 and 3 aren't awful. There's no need to rewrite them )
I'm loving the way you switch between the past and the present. A refreshing approach to story writing that makes it much more interesting to read than the usual stuff.
I quite like Risa's character; her flaws make it possible to identify with her (because nobody's perfect in this world!). I think it'd be interesting if there were a little more character development though... I'm not sure how you could do that for Risa, and you might not agree with this, but it's just something that I thought could (hopefully) further improve the story.
It's a great story so far )
