I just want to say I love your writing. I'm sorry I don't say it enough. I'm never sure what to leave in reviews and feel I shouldn't bother you with the same old, 'I loved it' over and over again on your stories but... yeah. I love them. Even though your portrayal of Yami is very different I enjoy it. You take as long as you need and do as you do. I just want you to know your work is very much appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to write.

As always I love to see updates to this story.
I hate to hear you say you think anything about the first half of this story was wasted. I think it has been some of the greatest fiction I've ever read and I am very eager to hopefully reach the end of this story. But I am also familiar with the great surge of dismay that comes with realizing two ideas for one story are incongruent with one another. I hope you get things straightened out in such a way that pleases you, that you may share them with the world.
As it is, this chapter was deliciously dark. The idea that Yugi is just along for the ride, knowing he's helpless against Yami's intention to who-knows-what? makes whatever he's planning seem that much more frightful, if even Yugi can't stop him should the need arise.
I realize the last line wasn't meant to be terribly specific, but it gives me the imagery of several men standing behind Yami shooting into the sky for dramatic effect. While not entirely impossible, I doubt that's what you had in your mind. A little more detail would have been great. Or, you know, the next update.

So is it just me, or is Yami taking Enthusiastic Walks?

Oh my goodness loving the story so far! Waiting for the next chapter eagerly.

Phew! I can't wait to see Seto again - and I really want to see where this shooting leads us. I am assuming at this point, like Yuki, that it is something to do with Gozaburo in the other timeline? The plot thickens!

Still eager to see Kaiba awaken, but watching Mokuba's relief was, well, enough to alleviate the tension. He tries to be Nii-sama, but he's not quite there. How close he can get, though, is heartwrenching. A boy that young shouldn't need to be like Kaiba. Kaiba shouldn't even need to be like Kaiba.

Cheers in the fanfic and cheers in my heart. Not only for my favorite story to be back up again, but for the recovery of my favorite fictional big brother Seto Kaiba. LONG LIVE THE KING!

Pay back bit**es! XD That's where Yami went. XD
Update soon! (This pretty much goes for all of your unfinished stories ;) I've become addicted to much of your work,. Can you tell?)
| Ruby of Raven chapter 40 . 6/9/2016
Oh Gods, YES! XD Do it, Yami! I'm right there with you!
No wonder Yami's obsessed with him, Seto's his idol! Oh MY Gods, I can't believe it! Thanks for putting into words everything I feel!
| Ruby of Raven chapter 6 . 6/9/2016
XD poor Clinton! XD he just got that sour cream!

Oh, I was so hoping we'd find out how Seto was doing in this update... I'd actually forgotten about the Valery twist and had to re-read some of the previous chapters to catch myself up again (don't worry, I promptly became addicted again).
I particularly liked Valery's way of distinguishing Yami from Yuugi; it definitely made me crack a smile!
Crossing my fingers that an update on Seto's condition comes sooner rather than later. (But I know that you've got a lot of projects going on. But puh-LEASE! I seriously just go back to chapter 48 sometimes just to feel the tingles and chills it sends down my spine!)

Thanks for the update!

I love your stories but you make me angry. As "Dr. Mini Pie" also commented, we're waiting for Seto's reappearance, and this story has essentially been on hold for over a year. I've been following your work for a good while but I'm noticing the pattern that you tend to get very side-tracked, usually right at the part where I'm hanging on the edge of my seat for an update. Then you start a new story and it makes me not want to read it.
For a very long time I wound up addicted to checking my email every hour, just in case there might be an update of this particular story. I've never read a piece of fiction, fan or otherwise, that I've wanted to read so desperately. Now that you've updated again after so long, I almost wasn't even excited. Your writing and characterization is impeccable. Your writing habits, as far as your audience can tell: not so much. Please finish your stories.
That being said, this chapter was interesting, if not the update we're all waiting for. I very much enjoy getting more familiar with the version of Seto's childhood you create.

I have read this so many times, but I think Yami's last line is my favourite from the entire thing 3
And yeah, the duel-for-Mokuba's-safety thing was. Um. Only in YGO, man, only in YGO. (Every so often I get the urge to take all the plot events and rewrite them the way normal people would react. i.e. with guns and throwing people in prison)

I really enjoy this story, great writing! Except Seto's been in surgery for a year and a half now - talk about nerve-wracking!
