Beautifully done. It's been a long ride, but I enjoyed it all the way.

Although it's been so long I'll need to reread the whole thing now, which is for the best, I'd say :wink:.

Why did I have to sit next to a window?
That was freaking genius man, love when something comes full circle like that. Huge congratulations on finishing, you did a great job. I feel like I should be posting a huge wall of compliments, but there are no words for this. This is a huge accomplishment, and it's hard to say something meaningful when I only picked this up last month. Great job Thanatos. Great job.

You've got to let it go dude. The "blank and I" versus "blank and me" usage is so minor that it's not considered a grammatical error by even the International Baccalaureate.

Well done, bud. Don't know if you plan on writing much more KS things now that you've managed to complete this (or write anything else at all), but I commend you for completing your story and writing something very, very good. I like that the ending wasn't quite cliche as a lot of endings seem. It ended on a one-liner, but there was no lovey-dovey stuff, no real form of the two characters really getting all mushy with each other; more or less, I'm trying to say it felt realistic. There was a realistic talk between two people in a romantic relationship that ended without really focusing on the two being lovers. The conversation between the two of them was nice and level-headed, very down to earth without really getting overly metaphorical and lengthy. Everything tied up short, sweet and to the point.

Again, well done. Be proud of your will to finish something that, while it's not a literary masterpiece, is something that you can look back on and be like 'damn, I wrote a lot that one time and it felt pretty good'. Wish I would have had your will to commitment when I was writing a lot, but hey, I still go around and write some shit when I feel the urge come on. Best of luck with whatever you choose to do writing-wise (if anything at all) in the future. But more importantly, be glad of your accomplishment and take some time to relax. ;)

And so it ends. Great work man. I always looked forward to your new chapters and was never disappointed. I wish we could send you back in time to work with 4LS to make this one of the canon routes of the VN :lol:

Congratulations! You must feel awesome in finally completing a project that took you over a year. Thanks for sharing this wonderful story with all of us.

A fitting denouement.

As for the story as a whole, I'm glad I found this when I did. Well done Thanatos. No one can take this accomplishment away from you.

Damn, beaten to it.

I'm not sure there's much I can say that hasn't already been said. Writing continuously for nearly two years is an achievement in and of itself, let alone crafting a wonderful story in the process. I think back to those early chapters, where we criticized the contrivedness of Hisao's coincidental encounters with Akira, and I realise that, like Hisao's own story, it's only been up from there. It has been a hell of a ride, man. Thanks for taking us on it.

Bravo, well done. Beautiful fic with a wonderful message. Hisao seemed so lost in life, but by the end of the story, he's content and has goals to strive for, not to mention the lovely Akira by his side. The whole experience of reading this really felt like an actual route.

.....so the wine wasn't poisoned? :mrgreen:
Girls: Hanako/Misha > Lilly > Emi > Shizune/Rin
Routes: I realized that every route has its own charms, but felt that Shizune's was lacklustre. It has Misha though!

It's been a heck of a read, kudos. I like how you ended with the obvious parallels to the start, it really drove home how Hisao has changed from the man he used to be.

It was a nice ride, shame that its over. But all things, especially good ones, must come to an end. Good job thanatos and thanks for finishing this amazing story. While I cross my fingers for a sequel I know it won't happen anytime soon. If we ever cross paths, I'll be sure to buy you a beer.
I'm just a rusty old goat and a poor writer by anyone's standards, so no need to take my advice to heart, and when you do, take a handful of salt with it.

Whether or not it's an error depends on the gramatical context in the sentence.

I've always considered endings to be bittersweet. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed this psuedo-route and congrats!

Wow, just wow. So well written, and the most perfect yet simple ending we could have asked for. I used to be a Lilly fan, but now it is definitely Akira all the way for me.

Bravo, Thanatos.
