Don't know if you'll see this, but I read this long ago and have only now gotten around to reviewing this story.
Thanks for writing a rather interesting and compelling story, even though and especially because the ending didn't agree with me personally - for my perspective's just one, and I'm glad to see another take on SAO.
And while many have talked about how bittersweet the ending was, I'd like to say it's actually hopeful. Kirito probably seems like he's lost Asuna - but frankly, unlike canon Kirito/Asuna, this version of Kirito seems like he'll be able to move on from that and keep on living, and perhaps that's the message of the story.
Perhaps Kirito may have lost everything he gained in SAO, Asuna's love and perhaps, if he throws out the seed, even the last connection to that steel castle. But despite that, as Kayaba says, "it's time for the New Game to begin", and as long as Kirito lives, it always will be. Even in the real world, his journey has just begun. And perhaps that is what hope truly is - not that bad things, even terrible ones, don't happen - but that despite that, one can continue to live on, to pursue the adventures and dreams still over the horizon.
Once again, thank you for writing this!

You know a Gungale Sequel would be nice... Kirito x Sinon
Sinion help kirito with his PSTD regarding the Laughing Coffin . It would be more realistic for Sinon to be more composed and better equiped to help Kirito. Encountering Potential Laughing Coffin memember Makes him more Unstable and Muderous.. He has Hard time with sleeping as well.

That is think the sisters and bad writing if you're just going to disregard the rules to fuel a Narritive.. Allowing Red playersxin town Makes no logical sense.
The next time you make a story please avoid making unnecessary drama

As for the AN about the orange and red players, it's probably because the Kirito's cursor was forcibly changed by Kayaba, rather than as a result of him actually committing a crime, so he'd not be restricted by the same penalties that other orange players have. Also, a red cursor dictates a monster. If you commit a crime, no matter how bad, your cursor will be orange. They are just called "red players" to differentiate between players that commit non-lethal crimes, and player-killers, or in SAO, murderers.
