Once he's envisioned the outcome he desires, Kyouya begins to plan, and devise, and very quickly he realizes that Fujioka Haruhi is going to be a problem.
- I registered in FicWad just so I could review your story. :)
I'm not generally a fanfiction reader because I lack the patience to find real gems worth reading. (Hee!) My friends usually just link me directly to fanfics they enjoyed.
Today though, I decided to try my luck. By happy chance, this story was the very first Ouran High School Host Club fanfiction I read. It was a very enjoyable piece.
What I admired most about this piece was how it retained the ambiguity of the manga.
Major plus points for me included:
1) A well-crafted story,
2) An engaging writing style
3) Fantastic usage of the English language!
I was hooked from the very first sentence. It's not easy to write something that follows the plotline of the original manga, and at the same time, present a creative and unique story. This author succeeded though.
I look forward to reading more Ouran High School Host Club fiction from evil_whimsey!
p.s. It helps that Kyouya is one of my favorite characters in the manga. Hee!
Author's responseOkay, um. Can I marry you? You are completely awesome. : )
Lass, I gotta tell you, this review absolutely makes my week. It's a wonderfully articulated response, the kind a writer dreams about getting, and it's just flattering as all get-out.
"King, Queen, Knave" was a troublesome, difficult story to write, and I worried a lot that it would end up being inaccessible to everyone who read it. But your commentary eases my mind considerably, and you can't imagine how pleased I am that you found the style engaging, and the overall story enjoyable.
Thank you so, so much for going to the trouble of signing up here, and reviewing. It really means a lot.
Drop me a line, and we can work out the details of the engagement. ;D
p.s. I love Kyouya to pieces, and he is ever so much fun to write. Oh! And that other story, "Dressed" is a continuation of "K,Q,K", if you're interested.
(#) mechan 2007-02-07 03:23:57 PMwow, can we say brilliant? there's nothing i enjoy more than a fanfiction that actually captures the characters as they are meant to be. and i love Kyouya^^ i am very much so looking foward to more.
Author's responseWhat a great comment. Thank you for sharing your response with me! Hopefully some day I'll be able to get back to work with Kyouya, and finish the overall story. He is so interesting to write, and at least in the back of my mind, there are further adventures in store for him.
