Shiranai Atsune chapter 5 . 9/13
So instead of bringing a bear, Fuyuhiko went with Akihiko to a toy shop so he can choose his own bear?

Can't they just go to a build-a-bear shop?

He chose the bear... or the bear chose him.

Love at first sight huh?

Hmm... wonder what kind of bear did he pick?

Onyx eyes huh? I think I might have an idea...

What was it wearing?

Handmade... so it was made by someone's hand from scratch and not in factories?

Suzuki... so this is where it all began.

Soul-mates huh?

Bet he's thinking "this is the one... it must be."

Wink?

Can next chapter involve Akihiko meeting Haruhiko? Or at least, something involving Haruhiko more please?

Why did Akihiko ask for bear? What put that idea into him? Was it because of the time Tanaka gave him a bear for his birthday?

Hey, wait a minute, why do they live in some apartment? Why aren't they living at some big fancy rich mansion?
Shiranai Atsune chapter 4 . 9/13
Well... his tutor is... ...uhm...

I can't believe his mother did that! Taking his story as her own?!

UGH!

Wait, he hasn't shown anyone his "real words" since? Then what has he been showing her?

...is she mentally unwell? She's calling him "Autumn" even though they're alone together...

Man, what is wrong with her? Why is she like this?

"cruelty of men"? Does she mean Fuyuhiko?

Who's "he"? Fuyuhiko... or Haruhiko?

Yup, definitely Fuyuhiko.

"an investment to his financial future"?! Okay, "worst mother of the ever" award goes to Aiko Usami!

Oh... he didn't know about it until now... sure, he has heard whispers, but this is the first she's told him.

OUCH.

...so... Aiko is a writer as well... angrily talking to her editor...

And apprently she is out of her latest "conquest" and is suffering from writer's block?

Meanwhile, sad enough, Akihiko is living the gloomy life as "Autumn" in school...

...when he first lost his "mother"...?

Wait a minute... Aiko is dicussing with her own six-year-old son... ...lemons?!

What kind of mother is she?! Not to mention, referring to him as her "orphaned nephew" to her lovers?!

He saw them in their apartment less than a week ago... wicked smile... she saw him too...

This is sooooo messed up... in many ways and different levels.

What is this? Please explain this to me...

Sweet! I've always wanted to read more stories about Akihiko's life! Especially his childhood! England! ...family!

Don't even care that this was posted ages ago; I have to tell you how much I adore and admire this fic, just like everything else of yours I've read. Like you, I love to get a glimpse of a character's backstory to see how they became who they are in the present, but honestly, I think your explorations of the JR cast's pasts are even better executed than the original JM chapters. The characters feel so much more rounded than they do in the manga. The attention to detail is exquisite and even though it's fanfiction, I feel like I have a deeper understanding of the canon characters after reading it. My favourite out of the stories was 'New Word', but all of them had an equally emotive, clever and interesting plot that I seriously didn't want to put down. And to top it off, the writing was as beautiful as always.
In short: I may be late, but I loved this. Thank you for writing. :)

Oh my god. Akihiko is so adorable as a child! I have younger siblings that I take care of and love very deeply. Children are a soft spot for me, (Even though I suppose some could consider me a child as well, being a teenager) so when I read this I wish for nothing more than to dive into this story and hold the young boy and tell him that he is indeed an important existance. *Sigh*

Once again, lovely writing. :)

I'm finding it harder to come across such enjoyable reads lately, so seeing you still kicking and producing such great stuff really makes the lack of other material more bearable. This was lovely to read, and just what I needed, I enjoyed it immensely.

Ah, I'm so happy you updated!

This was rather nice (short and sweet). I love how you've written Akihiko and Suzuki-san's first meeting. Can you call it love at first sight? Fuyuhiko's still an asshole, though.

Damn you are a good writer! How long does it take you to write these? I adore your grasp of language. Perfect work as always

That hurt, poor Akihiko. I wonder how Misaki would react if he knew about this
FangLovesMeMost chapter 4 . 4/13/2014
Poor Akihiko... :( it's so sad that he has to deal with all of this.
Your writing is lovely, and I think of all of it as part of the real series. Everything just fits so perfectly. Thank you for writing! :)
