|Reviews for Paperclip|
| banal chapter 1 . 3/9
As a ruiner who comes from a long, long line of ruiners, I wish to extend my gratitude. I cannot imagine why my husband finds it endearing, but your wonderful representation of Natsuki's embarrassment and subsequent naive efforts with the paperclip are just lovely and do shed some light for me.
I like the honesty you give these two. You build faithfully on the characteristics and backstory we are given in the anime and extrapolate a relationship dynamic that feels right for me as a reader, a kind of natural evolution. That Natsuki reads Shizuru's body language so well is a normal progression when you spend so much time with someone, but she's still oblivious enough on occasion not to connect the dots to figure out that Shizuru is being deliberately evasive for a reason. Too many people make Natsuki dense but you haven't, which is most appreciated. I always felt it was unfair.
Also appreciated is a nod to Shizuru's jealousy. Not crazy, and somewhat founded in this instance, but certainly a factor that I always assumed she would just have to battle with if they ever ended up in a relationship... and written sensibly here!
Of course, everything negative completely withers under the weight of the affection Shizuru feels for Natsuki, and her endearing, total lack of awareness when it comes to anything communicated with subtlety.
Thanks for this. It was very sweet. Also, sorry I rambled a bit :/

This just gave me the feeling of worry that I'll do something like this in the future, haha.
Also, this was wonderfully angsty with the way they fought. You captured both Natsuki and Shizuru perfectly! Thanks for sharing this. It's just so Natsuki to propose with a paperclip when faced in this situation, heh.

Hahah...this is a really funny and yes, I do say sweet! Not sugar candy but better...dark chocolate. Yeah I messed up a couple of times, let slip some information that was to be "secret" so I do understand and can relate very whole heartfully on this fic.
You are such a prolific and talented writer. Please do not stop and I wish to give a shout out to your muses, friends and everyone!

Haha, thanks, I am definitely a ruiner. I spoiled so many surprises already that I have enough material to write a book :D
Sweet fanfic :)

Exquisite cute work! I love it!
| Guest chapter 1 . 11/28/2013
Nicely done but, honestly, I finished it still feeling really annoyed and put off by Natsuki. After the, "This isn't happening. Shizuru…" what I really wanted Shizuru to reply with was, "It is no matter. Now at least I know who you would choose in a choice between myself and Yuuki-han."

What a very nice one-shot. Shows us what a little misunderstanding could do. Glad that they were able to kiss and make up yay!
| Foilan chapter 1 . 11/14/2013
I did not see that coming! You surprised me completely! XD ( in a way i couldnt ruin it :P)
Great one-shot and love the dedication on the end! And overall, i love it! :)

Heh, this is why making plans without the knowledge or consent of the person you're making them for/with can be a really bad idea. (It could be worse...I myself react so badly to surprises that it's entirely possible that had I been Natsuki, the answer would just have been "no"...but then, my wife knows that.) Looks like Shizuru got caught up too much in the romance of the moment...so that she'd best learn that lesson for the really big planning stage that comes next! (I also appreciate how you preserved the surprise for the sake of the reader with the title and summary-I'd been imagining something completely different!) A fun and sweet fic, in all.

Very very cute! I loved the way you played Shizuru's jealousy as a way to distract Natsuki from figuring out why shizuru would want her on Friday ;)

You can count the day as good/lucky when amidst the heaps of crap that appear in this fandom lately, you find a true diamond like that.
Heart-warming, funny, focused on the details of characters behaviour - like the way Natsuki recognise Shizuru's angry... I could go on and on.
Thank you, dear Author, for this piece :)

This was a fabulous one-shot. I loved the plot twist and enjoyed every bit of the story. Also the A/N was pretty funny too.
