iLupinus chapter 1 . 1/30/2012
I'm going to have to agree with miss owl. I've recently lost a friend of mine, and I was blubbering like a baby at the funeral, and it was closed coffin. Once they showed the video about his life in the beginning, I was in tears.

I will be the first to say that I don't like Yagyuu. Okay, so I hate the Gentleman. But, I do know that as the Gentleman, he wouldn't think that way. Expecially about Niou's death. The thought that crying your heart out for someone at the funeral is wrong... that thought itself is what is wrong.

And the off-handed "shame he's dead" is not something that makes people feel okay with this fic.

It is beautifully written, but it is just wrong in my eyes.

As someone who has very recently lost a friend in a car accident, I found this fic extremely disrespectful. From the line of "Shame he's dead. Still... that's life, grim though it is. Accidents happen. Or rather, 'crashes' happen" to you writing that it's disrespectful to break down at funerals. I really hope that's not actually your own thoughts on the subject and it's just your interpretation of Yagyuu's character. Because it comes across as very ignorant and trivialising of people's grief when it comes to losing someone close to them suddenly.
