Reviews for It Started Over Coffee
Bloomingsunn chapter 11 . 9/27
I love this story, even though I read most of it in translation into my native language. It is very gentle and insanely pleasant to read dialogues, to see the characters' relationships and their development. My heart died in love and care a million times during the reading. Tell me, how can I contact you to request the translation of the remaining parts?

i recently saw something about Joliet so of course I had to come back and read this for the umpteenth time. ISOC has such a special place in my heart. I remember starting this back in high school and then coming back once it was finished. And reading it again I can't help but smile when the mention of Dreams, Seattle, and New York come up. I don't have to say how well written this is because I think it's SNS royalty now. But I just want to say thank you. This whole ISOC-verse has been such a comfort for me through my adolescent and into early adulthood. When Seattle was being posted I was going through a really horrible breakup that actually left me homeless for some time but reading your gave me an escape. A home to curl up in. When I first read This one i was in high school and thought the notion of meeting someone you felt so strongly for and connected with so instantly was kind of like a fairytale. But now at the age of 27 (cries) I couldn't help but smile more because I met my Partner in a purely by chance way when I was 23. And just the same way we became inseparable and started living together basically a few months into dating (the world being plunged into quarantine was also a factor) It's crazy the way things happen isn't it?

This was a long winded thank you but it seems disrespectful to come to this Story and not leave a comment. Thank you.

Hello Raz,

I've been reading coffee after almost a year and was reminiscing about your 'talk to me' days when you first started with this dialogue narrative. I've been reading your writing for more than a decade now. Perhaps 14 years? I was there through Norwegian wood, Sometime around midnight and talk to me. Just love how this element of 'dialogue' has evolved into your style, and it's very beautiful. I hope you are well.

Never imagined the coffee universe to grow so big, I can't decide who I love more, The OriginalCoffee!Sasuke or the NYC!Sasuke. I love all your Sasuke's (and naruto's ofc), they have so much character, personality and depth.

Just wanted to quote that dialogue in SAM:

N: Wait, can you call me an idiot?
S: Alright, you are an idiot.

So funny and so cute.

(Not too relevant, but I was watching an episode of RizzoliIsles while I read this chapter last night and it just made me feel so /ahhh!/ that they didn’t do something like this in the show (but like PG rated for tv).)

I read this a long time ago, so I forgot almost everything. It’ll be interesting to see what happens. And I don’t remember if I read the whole series or just this fic.

Yoo! You have no idea how much I love your whole "It started over coffee" universe. It's absolutely fabulous! I love your characters, their repartee, their universe and... In fact absolutely everything.

I discovered the story a few years ago, thanks to "All is ever dark" who translated it into French. And I needed some time to perfect my English enough to be able to read it in VO. And discover with great pleasure the whole universe ! Whether Itachi and his flirtation with Naruto, Kiba is his side a little crazy and a good best friend, Minato and his sweetness ... Even if Naruto and Sasuke are still the best!

And it's really nice to discover fics taking place in our world without the painful coming out and the permanent judgment. We want more painful gay ffic. Everything is light, Naruto is open-minded, as well as his entourage, and Sasuke understanding and patient. And! My God! Their chemistry ! It's gold in my eyes and cotton around my heart! And that's why your story has a special dimension for me.

And I would love, with your permission, to translate the rest of your universe into French. And let other French speakers discover it!

Feel free to answer me as you like! I still love this universe and your work !

Have a very nice day !

It was really a good story, I loved it!

Also, feel obligated to mention that, to be safe from STD's, one must also use protection during oral sex. Just for next time

My goodness. I so so love their chemistry in this. I love how their relationship wasn’t rushed but at the same time I’m frustrated at how slow it was. But I think it was wrapped up nicely. It was definitely a roller coaster and I wish I read this before I started dating because there’s a lot of really insightful and helpful tips in having a healthy and pleasant relationship.

There are times when I cry, laugh and even snort at this fanfic that I really regret not having read it earlier. But I’ll definitely read this one more time before I go to the side stories. Thank you for this beautiful classic.

Why the hell is this story so sweet!? ARGHHH I freaking love it. It's so good, the development, their relationship, how they talk. Oh my GOD how I wish I had this.

Hello my internet friend. How are you? :) I think about this fic and come read it every few months. Love it! I hope all is well
Guest chapter 11 . 4/23/2021
FUCKING AMAZINNG! HOLY COW. My heart felt ever moment in this. Made me realize I wish my life had this. I'm missing a piece too. Haha, amazing job. I would rate this 100/10. Theres not a single thing wrong with it, the gradual build up is perfect and both characters personality and characteristics shown through. Maybe the best part is how it began. The perfect begining and perfect end. I loved how their conversations fit together perfectly and so smoothly. Even though there was a roller coaster of feelings from time to time. Just genuine love. Thank you for allowing us to read this. Really needed it in my life right now.
