I don't like the ending, ;-; I want Sora and Kairi to be together and everything is finally perfect. TTTT ;-; ;_; ;;
| marycutie19 chapter 61 . 5/6
Oh my gosh! Im srsly not satisfied with the ending, haha. But, I'll be looking forward for the sequel! Waaa Finding Hikari is one of the fanfics that gave me a reason to cry and put me at rage. Even though the ending came out late, its still worth it :D Keep writing! And, goodluck :)
| AJ chapter 61 . 4/16
Talk about the mother of all bittersweet ending. Need to reread this whole story since it's all done now.
I would to read a sequel to this because after all of that, I feel a bit empty from this.
| DecisivePumpkinHead chapter 61 . 4/15
Holy shit. I absolutely cannot wait for the sequel! I've followed this story since the day you put it up, and honestly, it's my favorite to date. You can bet your ass I'll follow the sequel. I'll be waiting in the corner. Crying. While reading your other fics.
| NoodleOodles34 chapter 61 . 4/7
Very excited for the sequel! Can't wait!

This Fanfic was actually the very first one that got me hooked on reading fanfiction in the first place. This has definitely been one of the best pieces of work I've had the pleasure of reading from start to finish. Not only did it capture the subtle essence of the main characters in a modernized light, it also reflected some of the emotional challenges that the writer had to face over time, through the actions of the main characters.
Princess-Xion, I can say that you've definitely made more than an slight impact on my reading experience. It takes great potential to compose works such as this...and even greater strength of the heart to channel your emotions through your writing.
I'm looking forward to reading the sequel of "Finding Hikari" as well as any other works you may create in the future. To conclude this review, allow me to quote the poem that has stood as a cornerstone not only for my friendships and my girlfriend, but also for authors who find serenity through their works. This was written by Kairi and read by Sora at the end of "Kingdom Hearts II."
All credit to the following poem goes to Square Enix and the initial creators of the "Kingdom Hearts" series.
"Thinking of you, wherever you are;
We pray for our sorrows to end,
And hope that our hearts will blend.
Now I will step forward to realize this wish.
And who knows;
Starting a new journey may not be so hard,
Or maybe it's already begun.
There are many worlds,
But they all share the same sky;
One sky, one destiny."

it's over. I may not have been with this five for nearly as long as other readers, as I've only been with Finding Hikari since chapter 52.
Still, this fic was such a roller coaster of events and at times I found myself really emotional -cough Nami's death cough cough- and I just wanted to thank you for not ever failing to add some sort of major plot twist or cliffhanger that left me in suspense while I tried to guess what would happen next.
Can't wait for the sequel!
To be honest, I would have liked this just as a stand alone, but there were just too many loose ends that weren't finished that would always leaving me wondering. Looking forward to seeing what happens next!
| TheNotSoTalentedPoet chapter 61 . 4/6
What a ride this has been. As someone who's been reading this since its inception, I can say that this is a long time coming. I remember that you said that this would be far less dramatic than Love Must Come, and wow, was that inaccurate in the end. I also recall you saying very early on that Xion's role had run its course, and that also was not not the case. I apologize if you've amended the note about Xion, but the other one is plain as day on Chapter One. But, two years, and infrequent update schedules can excuse that.
On the whole, this was a fantastic read. Pretty much every character was likable, even Sora after his motivations were revealed. The descriptions were vivid, and the picture painted was one of excellent clarity. The twists were engrossing, though I did guess most of them. And, probably the biggest point in this story's favor, you managed to keep it exciting AFTER the initial climax at the beach. I personally would have gone maybe five chapters after that, solely to tie up all loose plot threads. But you kept at it for way longer than that, and managed to not make it seem forced. I was skeptical, I assure you, but my fears were assuaged. And the ending... I like how it's actually a realistic take on it, and definitely the most sensible option there was to choose. Regardless of how in love they may be, Sora and Kairi are lightning rods for severely fucked-up shit. Especially when they're together. They seem to be irreparably damaged, and time apart is crucial to their sanity.
Plenty of room for a sequel, and the promise of it being less of a clusterfuck is a relief. I will say that this is a tough act to follow, but I'm sure that you'll pull it off in the end. Cuz you're awesome.
On that note, I offer my sincerest thanks at the shout out. It really warms my cold, barely beating heart to know that someone as talented as yourself would call my writing great. I don't care if no one follows up on the recommendation, because the fact that you bothered to is enough gratification for me. Seriously, you rock, madam. Thank you.
| Nano1012 chapter 61 . 4/6
I was pleasantly surprised by this chapter an I really look forward to the sequel. Although I was thinking the end would be happy, I prefer how you've ended this until the sequel because its so much more realistic. That fauna would not be healed in a day, or a week, it would take lots of time, an I've noticed many authors look past that( me included for one of my stories, which I should fix probably.) so I'm very impressed with your skills. It's amazing, and I know it takes guys to write things like this, and although I haven't experienced things this difficult, I know many other have, so you, an all others are amazing inspiration! Keep on being who you are because it is purely the best thing I've come to see/read in life.
| SiChri chapter 61 . 4/6
Wow. Not the ending I was expecting, and it leaves me feeling kind of empty (in a good way), like I cannot process it. You wanna know why? Because it's maybe the most rational and level-headed choice Kairi has made in the whole story! What a pleasant twist :)
on that note.. A sequel!? YES!
You know, it's kind of nice seeing the complete tag on this story because it reminds me of a time when you were updating every 2-3 days. Looking back I've changed so much, I cannot image how you feel to close another chapter in your literary live. :)
| CarelessWhispers13 chapter 61 . 4/6
Wow, I've got to say I didn't expect that ending. I honestlu figured everyone would die or there'd be a happily ever after. This, however, was a realistic ending. This also shows how much Kairi's grown for her to actively seek help. I'm proud of her. I'm also pumped for the sequel! Hopefully Kairi isn't put through, shall we say, extreme abuse like in this story. Goodness, that girl needs a break! I sincerely hope she and Sora get the help they need, an I hope they do get a happily ever after at the end of the sequel! I've enjoyed this story so much!

OMG YAY FOR A SEQUEL! andimgonnabetotallyhonestwithyouiloveyourlemons! Lol so excited! :D 3
| CataclysmicContingency chapter 61 . 4/5
Oh. My. Fucking. Gosh. I don't normally cuss or anything, but I am so happy. Like I'm on drugs (er, no offense to Sora). I was literally jumping and jumping when I saw that you had updated. Then I saw "STORY COMPLETE", and there was something in my stomach. Like, a feeling of excitement and joy, but at the same time, anger and sadness all conflicting with one another. I don't even remember how long I've been following this story (even from when I didn't have a fanfiction account (oh, yeah, I'm Denise, by the way), but it's been a very long road. I have cried SO many times during this journey, and I love how you brought our favorite characters from our favorite games to life on one rollercoaster. Each chapter was SUCH a pleasure to read, and I remember checking three times a day on my iPad for the new update on your account (because I didn't receive notifications BECAUSE I didn't have an account) and squealing when there DID happen to be a new chapter. I can't even BEGIN to describe how talented you are and funny you are and how awesome you are. PLEASE, please, please! Never stop writing. Ugh, this was my favorite STORY (no, not fanfiction. Story.) ever! I loved Kairi's sass, Sora altogether, and their bumpy relationship and unadulterated love for one another. The plot is just flawless, and how you managed to pull this off and make it even better than expected, I don't know. But, you did it. I love you, senpai. *cue dramatic music*
LOL. Anyway, I am totally looking forward to the sequel. I kid you not, as I was scrolling down, I had this inner conversation with myself.
-Wait, why is she packing. WHAT?!
-Well, she's leaving because Sora's high again.
-WHAT. NO. But—!
-Re-lax! They'll make up sooner or later.
-THIS is the last chapter! Dingus!
-OH MY GAWD. *scrolls to see sidebar* The chapter is almost finished!
-Surely, they can make up in this time. Or perhaps there's an epilogue.
-NO, THERE ISN'T!
Then, I read the final author's note. And I wanted to rip my hair out because I totally disregarded the author's note in the beginning because I was so excited to read the chapter itself. Sigh. I am a dingus.
Wow, my review itself is turning intoa 61-chapter fanfic. Just kidding! I am looking forward to both the sequel and Guardians! I hold high expectations for you, but I hold no doubts of you meeting them.
Keep up the fan-fricking-tastic work!
| SoraxKairi7 chapter 61 . 4/5
AHH YAY you finally completed this fic! The sequel is a must after this chapter and I wholeheartedly look forward to Sora's side and his rehabilitation, as well as Kairi's. Maybe I missed it, but is there anywhere in this fic where the title was incorporated? I think it meant finding solace in the death of the fetus and Kairi accepting that she needed help? That's a little rough interpretation and probably doesn't make much sense but yeah.
This was definitely a bumpy ride! It can only get worse in the sequel! You did an absolutely splendid job on this fic and you definitely should be proud of yourself for such an accomplishment! 61 chapters sure is a lot, but that didn't matter! (I remember reading like 40 something chapters in a row and reviewing ALL of them XD) I blew your inbox up
The fact that Sora's on cocaine will really make the sequel dramatic. Drugs are horrible. I knew he was on something when he skipped happily (and crazily) around and was so excited for Kairi to hear those lyrics. His mind was on a speed run and he didn't know how else to handle the pain he endured from Riku's torture. That's enough to fuck anyone up.
Hmm. I can't really think of criticism. Reactions to the outrageous situations were pretty realistic imo, so you had that down. Descriptions were compelling and really put us in the character's head, even though this was written in third person. We felt their excruciating pain and sorrow throughout the fic and you left no room for mercy with each character death. (ROXAS!)
I hope Kairi's relationship with her family gets better as she goes through rehab. Also, the band will totally skyrocket to the top, but Sora has to get clean first! I wonder what you're going to do with the gang. He can't just quit, so surely lots of drama will occur! Xehanort, tho...
You have a talent for crime stories and the overly dramatic. It's just your thing. Take pride in it!
