| redhairdream chapter 7 . 4/22
I really really like this. It was sweet and well written. It had a bit of a cliffhanger at the end but only the kind that makes you wonder instead of angry that you didn't find out. The conversations flowed effortlessly and sounded natural. You could be a professional for all I know. But either way, well done. Really well done. :)

What a sweet ending! It obviously makes the most sense, and I love that it took them some time to figure that out. I was hoping for a bit more of the documentary discussion at the end, but the last line is also very poignant. This was excellent, and I'm so glad you decided to participate in Resbang 2013, and I can't wait to read 2014's!

Their banter was a lot of fun; it really felt like them, and I was giggling. I can't wait to see the last chapter!

Ahaha I loved the weirdo who tried to steal her shoes. The reviews were great, and again I think you chose to tell this story in a really great format.
| Twin-Lupus chapter 4 . 11/30/2014
This was really sweet! I love Blair's piece of advice. I also really love that she's using her mother's outfits. Excellent work!
| Twin-Lupus chapter 3 . 11/30/2014
I really enjoyed this chapter! There were a few grammatical errors, but they didn't hinder my understanding of the story. I'm glad we got the backstory to Maka's parents, and it feel very fitting to canon. I'm excited to see more of Soul's creepy acts.
| Twin-Lupus chapter 2 . 11/30/2014
Another super cute chapter. I loved Maka trading the books for the kid's magic trick - it was sweet and very like Maka. Their magic battle was great, and the last few lines were hilarious. Great work!

I'm sorry I'm reviewing this so late, but I am really intrigued by this particular way that you're telling the story! I like the idea of the documentary format, and you have great comedic timing. I'm excited to see where this goes!

THIS IS JUST WOW. I am a complete sucker for magician AUs, and you absolutely rocked this one. Soul and Maka were so in character, and you have a beautiful writing style. I really love how it was under the format of an interview. Though I usually don't like endings that leave too much for the information, this one was perfect. No better way to end such an amazing story!

Wowza. I love this. I especially love independent Maka! She with the Amazing Willpower able to withstand Soul Eater's Adorably Sexy Infatuation and get what she wants while still getting him. And then Blair, who is such a perfect roommate; she makes me wish I lived with a porn star cat as odd as that sounds (which probably doesn't sound odd at all to other people in this fandom).
I must read more of your things.

Oh I love magic-based ideas, and a magician AU was such a good idea! I anticipated this when summaries were first posted, and now I'm so happy to have read it! I liked their arguing and how they complimented each other! I also really loved the fact that they used each other's cards :) You kept things about them too; how Maka likes him just the way he is, and how Soul is at his best with Maka. It worked so well. And the ending- "we could be like partners or whatever" was so perfect! I also liked the inclusion of the snippets from their documentary interview, and those critics talking about their show! It was a nice touch! :)
One thing I'd like to point out, though, is that when Soul is in disguise in one of the earlier chapters he says his name is "Aaron" and a moment or two later, Maka calls him "Mark" instead. Just thought you should know But it really didn't take away from the reading :)

And of course, it's horrible of me to forget to mention that translucent sprinkles also produced some great art for you . (posting this review for chapter 6 instead of 7 because ffnet wont let me submit two reviews for one chapter)
| Lueur-de-L'aube chapter 7 . 12/26/2013
I love the parallels you made to the original manga, how Soul's stage and magic work is dark and how most people try to make him change his style. But Maka accepts him as he is, which is the thing that makes them work so well and successfully together. And in the end, everything comes full circle and it isn't Maka who becomes HIS assistant or the other way around, but they are equals, partners.
I thoroughly enjoyed your story and yyeann provided some great art for it, too. Keep up the good work!
| Lueur-de-L'aube chapter 3 . 12/26/2013
I really love your premise! I also like your sort of framing device with Soul and Maka providing comments for the interviewer(?) I like their interactions a lot, they're witty and funny to read. Soul having been a fanboy of Spirit is pretty amusing, considering how they act towards each other in the manga.

Sorry I had to, Pokemon is just too cool! Hate it when your all pumped up because you crushed them, then they bring out their level 999 and keep using the damn full heal! asdfghjkl
