I never realized the potential in this pairing until I've read your series; it's tastefully done and you completely captured the characters. To visualize and to strip the damage done in them by time and experience left me breathless and kept me wanting for more. The innocence they experienced with their respective canon couple (Misaki and Nowaki) is different in this one but delightful all the same; Hiroki is less bitter and Akihiko is somewhat softer(?) this time. They have a different chemistry but their sparks is undeniable.
Thank you for sharing this story. It was a roller coaster ride ( though I am quite saddened that it is still in hiatus. I hope to see this in the future :) )

Hey, just wanted to you that I love your story. It's so hard to find a good akihiko/hiroki story. Thanks and hope you update soon

Hello, you are officially my favorite fanfic author all time. As much as I love The original pairings I find these two just perfect for each other on so many levels. Recently came across Volume one and read all the chapters in a row sacrificing my much needed night sleep and needless to say it was so worth it. And you can imagine how happy I was to see volume 2. Love your writing and the fact that you update and finish them in a timely manner. Can't wait for chapter 3 3

Oh this made me smile! Love all the cannon references, though you've really turned things on their head and shown Hiroki as claiming, once again, his place as Akihiko's equal, which is one of the things I'm adoring about this pair.
Also, I would totally love it if to support his assertion in this chapter, Hiroki actually becomes a closet hiphop fan. Because seriously, it would just be funny.
Can't wait to see more!

The thing about this pairing is that when you think of it, it makes an awful lot of sense that they're perfect together, and that they can actually fuel EPIC stories. I don't know why the JR creator made mismatched pairs (but I'm thankful for Nowaki); maybe it's a BL formula and that perfectly matched couples seem boring.
Your writing, on the other hand, just proves how perfect they are together, and that perfect couples are far from boring. You write their dynamics so seamlessly that to me, they're even more real and believable.

So great to see this chapter revamped and back up. It really made me smile. Once again, I love the way you're manipulating canon, yet adding a different flavor to it. It's more mature and manly and god these men are hot together. As much as I love your angst, it's nice to see a lighter chapter and the characters (Hiroki) not as stressed.
And Akihiko and that car. Grrrrrr! Not much of a car person myself, but that pairing in my opinion is hot. Rich young author with a sexy car. Yum. No wonder Hiroki grabbed him the first chance he got. That kiss was extraordinary too, made me crave more manly Novelist loving, which according to canon, I remember happening at the end of this particular date ;)
Loved the ending too and the addition of the complicated stereo. Heh heh. You keep putting up chapters like this, and you'll have everyone coming to your yard.

I wonder if anyone has ever put 'There once was a man from Nantucket...' to rap music? Now THERE's a poem for Hiroki...I'm sure he would totally enjoy that one! lol!
Still one of my favorites, my friend! (the story, not the limerick!)
| Usakko chapter 2 . 10/28/2013
Ya see...I'm so conflicted, cause I go from loving Akihiko in this fic, to hating him in Escort.
Lol, oh the emotional rollercoster.
Love it as always! Xx

Luff the fluff! Had to look up two words glad to know my word pusher puts out high quality stuff.
| Kitkat3195 chapter 1 . 10/19/2013
After everything that happened in volume I, Hiroki didn't know that they were going out? *facepalm*
Haha. He's adorable though...and sexy.
I love Hiroki's mother for sending the fruits and I especially love the reason she does that. Yay for supportive mothers! :)
YES, I am ready for the Romantica date done Novelist style!
I look forward to the next chapter! :)
| barettachante chapter 1 . 10/18/2013
I am soooo lovin' this couple! Hot, hot, HOT not matter how you look at it (or have I said that a million times before?)
Getting ready to check out your new story!
Hugs and Kisses, Darling!

This is going to be so much fun. Great to see these scenes redone with all of Hiroki's adult certainty and confidence. The interactions with Aikawa are great, too.
I love the poem. Hadn't come across that one before.
And bar none THE diet for deliciousness is 80/10/10 high carb raw vegan. 2500-3000 calories per day of almost exclusively fruit and salad greens. And no alliums. Too much of a pain to follow long term, in my opinion, but a 1-6 week stint quarterly or so is amazing health wise. The fact that after the initial few days of detox it turns you into human candy is a side benefit.
