I really enjoyed reading this and I loved seeing a plausible, well-defined, older Keyop and his family getting some fanfic love. I found the pacing generally good but a bit uneven in places and I could have used a bit of backstory about the multiple teams and their members. However, the story line and concepts you explored rank among the best in our fandom and it's a unique and interesting read. Kudos!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. Actually there were two other stories that went before this one but I had to remove them for editing and have not had the heart or motivation to fix and repost them. As for the pacing in this one, I think it reflects the stuggle I had finishing it. I was getting a lot of input from people and was having a hard time meshing what they thought the story needed with what I wanted in the story. Thanks again for the encouragement.

Garnet, this was a lovely piece. I loved the way you wrote Keyop as well as the pain and touching emotions you put into the story.
The story seemed to have a nice flow to it as well.
Author's Response: Thanks, Cloud. I was kind of worried about the flow of the story because of all the challenges I had writing it. I'm glad the emotions came through clearly. And as for Keyop, I just love writing about him and writing his character. This is the most fun I've had with a character in a long time. Thanks again for reading and reviewing all the stories.

Garnet, even reading it for the second time I am still blown away by its' beauty! Still gorgeous, simply gorgeous!
Author's Response: Thanks, Green. Hearing that makes me blush. I'm glad it holds up under more than one reading. Thanks.

That was great fun! Much enjoyed the story, and your depiction of Keyop as an adult. I did get rather lost with all the non-canon characters, but I suspect that's because I haven't read any of your other stories.
And she definitely isn't a Mary Sue!
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it, Cathrl. Yeah, the non-canon characters are even sometimes hard for me to keep up with, and I've been around some of them for months now. I'm starting to think that most of the characters in Gatchamaniacs have become developed enough now that very few of them could truly be classed as Mary Sues anymore, but I alway feel safer warning people that she shares a few things in common with me, but not many.:) Thanks again for reading.

Very touching, and sometimes painful, story.
(You forgot to check 'completed' for this story.)
Author's Response: Thanks, UW. I also need to edit so that I can thank everyone who gave ideas and challenged me, even when I did get overwhelmed.:) I didn't check it as complete because when I was uploading, I didn't know if I was going to get it all posted in one sitting. I just forgot to go back and check it. I also need to add it to the series. Thanks, again for the encouragement and ideas.
