This was definitely a wonderful read! All of the characters were portrayed really well, and I enjoy your writing style. Not to mention that the ending was absolutely perfect and adorable! A job well done, and I look forward to future works.

I really cannot even express how much I love this. I've already linked this story to four people because I am so hyped about it.
First of all I really just want to hug you for having Black Star say that Maka is like a sister to him, because that is all I want out of life. I ship Soul and Maka to the ends of the Earth but I really really want her to be best friends with Black Star. So the fact that you had that in there already earns a million cool points from me.
The way you deal with Soul and Maka's home lives is heartbreaking but perfect. The characterization is spot-on, and I liked how you changed things up to fit the AU. Maka lives with her dad but is practically living alone. And instead of having her mom to turn to, her mom is dead, and that's why Spirit is out with women every night. And Soul has an inferiority complex that he can't shake because he doesn't have Wes there to tell him that his music is great too, because Wes is also gone. Plus that would make Soul feel worse, because Wes was a prodigy to begin with and everyone knows that when someone dies they become 3 million times better at things because they're dead and humans honor the dead by exaggerating their good qualities. So I bet that people still mourn the great violinist Wes, and that probably makes Soul feel worse about himself.
So it makes me really happy that when Soul first plays in their room, Maka compliments him. The way that it affects him is heartbreaking, but kind of in a good way, because he's finally being recognized for the talent he has. And it probably really helps him to teach Maka how to play the piano. And when they both broke down after Scrabble I was practically in tears myself. Maka's outburst about her father's life was enough to leave my heart in shambles, but when Soul admitted how happy he was when he found someone who liked his music, I was a puddle of emotion.
Having Maka be a black belt at karate is a genius move. It would have killed me if you didn't have Maka in some type of martial arts or have her familiar with fighting, considering she is such a badass in the anime and manga. And the fact that she managed to beat up Giriko and be so proud of herself is just like Maka. She didn't care how banged up she was as long as she taught the jerk a lesson and helped someone else in the process. And it was completely adorable how worried Soul was about her when he couldn't find her and how he took her home and bandaged her up (along with some other types of healing, wink wink). Good on ya for showing that Soul always wants to be there for Maka, and that it absolutely eats him up when she gets hurt because she refused to ask for back-up. That was so spot-on I wanted to cry. And honestly I am surprised the Maka was so taken aback by Soul's confession that he liked her a lot. I was almost sure that somewhere along the line they had already gotten together after the Scarbble incident because they seemed so close in that moment. So when I found out that she didn't even know that he liked her, I was shocked. I guess it doesn't seem as obvious to a girl who spends most of her time alone and only knows about love from what she reads in books and what she doesn't see her father do.
And the ending was just priceless. Because Maka had been there for him all along, and that was one of the reasons why he wanted to get to know her from the start. She gave him "her life savings" because she liked him piano playing so much, and thought that she should give back to him since he caused her so much joy. Gosh, that's just such a cute ending.
Honestly there are a ton of other things that I liked about this story, but if I list them all this review will be longer than the story itself. Let's just say it's safe to say that I liked the entire thing and it's not gross at all. In fact it's probably one of my favorite SoMa stories. So thank you for writing something so great and I hope to read more from you.

I absolutely, positively love this! I started crying when Soul started talking about Wes, and when Maka told him about her mom. The story in all was fantastic with the character developement, it wasn't rushed at all. The ending, however, absolutely blew me away and I LOVE IT. Definitely favoriting this and telling my peeps. :D

awww that was sooo cute!

I might be crying? I love your style-it all flows together so perfectly. The metaphors are really creative as well, like when you described Maka's eyes. I wish I could give you some constructive criticism, but I'd have to scour this line by line to come up with anything of use.

God mother fucking dammit! That was amazing and I'm just holding back the tears- nope one fell. I think this is great and I kind of wanna puke from how sad this is making me. I don't want to favorite it because I'll read it again and be sad again, but I will :( I'm gonna go cry some now, thank you!
