Oh geez, I wish I had written this. It's just so damn good. How could I not wish it was mine and feel like reading through this a second time?
I must say, you really did do an awesome job at writing Kyoko's POV in the two chapters that you wrote, well done. Also, those lyrics... They really are the best out there, no joke.
I shall never get tired of listening to your interpretation of the song lyrics on repeate repeatedly while I listen to the English cover of the 'And I'm Home' song that you posted... Which you kinda did end up self-advertising yourself on there too after all, haha.
Keep up the great work. Amazing work on the vid and story writing skillz!

Yes. I'd probably be a better critic if I actually liked the pairing, and was not reading this because I saw your adaptation on YouTube.

And then Kyoko adopts a name of Hamlet's suicidal girlfriend.

Well, that was depressing.
| Sergio Turbo chapter 1 . 11/8/2012
I think you succeeded. This was a really good reading.
I think you managed to explore Kyoko's emotions very well, and I don't see OOCness anywhere. Good job!

This was beautifully written; a wonderful piece for this pairing. You got the characterization perfectly and I loved the development of Kyoko's resolve and especially the end. Amazingly well done!

Sadness level: Almost teary-eyed.
Firstly, I guess the only written error that caught my eye was Kyouko calling Mami "Mami-san". It seems a bit out of character, but it's also one helluva nitpick. More importantly, the story seems to mix present and past tenses at points, which while there might be a point behind it, breaks the flow of the story.
Enough of the negatives, now for the positives. You do a good job on writing Kyouko, and the fight scene was well enough orchestrated (no pun intended) that I could follow it with the show in my head. The hopeful ending was a nice touch, and it provided a few laughs in an otherwise quite depressing story.
It's a true-to-style retelling, not counting Kyouko's "realization". It's done well, and I enjoyed reading it.

I like how you used the lyrics to accompany the scene from the manga in Kyoko's point of view.
It fits well and I like it.
Not much to say other than good work and that's it due to bouts of burnouts, ongoing laziness, and some other things going on now.

Oh. My. God.
This story was just unbelievably touching O_O
By the last line I was just going "awwwww!" XD
No, but really, I like it, lots~ It's well written, you followed what happened in the actual story really well, while also including your own take on the Kyouko and Sayaka route in Kyouko's thoughts. It was all just so charming :3
| worthlessvalor chapter 1 . 11/18/2011
Awesome, man~ I practically re-watched the episode right after reading your fic.
Totally love how you pictured Kyouko's thought. XD

I thought the lyrics didn't take away from the experience, rather it complimented it. Unlike the actual scene, Kyoko didn't try to talk to Sayaka much in this fic, which is fine, but I would've liked to see that. And I dunno why but this part:
"who the hell do I think I am, thinking to myself words of heroism and sacrifice and love, trying to sound all cool like some damn Power Ranger?"
Somehow it killed the catharsis of the following realization Kyoko had for me. Power rangers...really? Or perhaps it's more appropriate if (sorry don't remember the anime in detail too well I gotta rewatch it methinks) in the anime they were talking about power rangers. If that's the case then the comparison's fine. There's gotta be a more serious comparison than power rangers though. Samurai maybe?
All of these are very minor complaints though. Overall Kyoko's thoughts as she faced down Sayaka's witch were very accurate and profound. I very much enjoyed reading this thanks for pointing it out to me :).

I've gotta give it to you. I really liked this fic of yours. I haven't properly read an anime fanfic for a while now, in fact I've been out of touch with anime for about a year now. Recently though I've started watching again, and prior to my anime-hiatus I used to get unhealthily obsessive with them all the time. I've been in more fandoms than I have fingers. But my recent viewing did almost nothing to me. Yeah, I enjoyed them and all, but after it was done I simply moved on. None of them left a lasting impression. Then came Madoka.
To this day I'm still baffled by the fact that it was Madoka that did me in. And I almost gave this a miss too because of the whole magical girl genre. But because of all the good things I keep hearing about it and because my favorite composer Kajiura Yuki worked on the music, I decided to pick it up if only for the music. Looking back, I'm so damned glad I made that decision. PMMM is pretty much the best anime I've seen in a long while. And I watched it in one go, so there's a lot to process in the days that followed after, but the one thing that really stood out for me was Kyouko and Sayaka's relationship.
Which leads me back to your fic. I really liked your interpretation of what was going on in Kyouko's head in this scene. It's very believable and flows well, how her thoughts evolved from wanting to save Sayaka to realizing that she couldn't. Not in the way that she wanted to anyway. You know I didn't like Kyouko at first cause she was obviously introduced as an antagonist character but after her back story reveal my opinion, like Sayaka's, changed. However, I never quite saw the KyouSaya tangent...until Kyouko's sacrifice. It's weird, but immediately after my supposedly nonexistent KyouSaya feelings exploded. And well, I know I'm ranting and probably not making much sense, but thanks for this fic.
Oh, and I loved what you did to the lyrics of 'and I'm home'. Really, really neat. Good job overall!
