Chapter 3: I just read the first 3 chapters to get an idea, and I have to say its very promising, and I for sure will continue! Chanyeol sounds charming from The bit we got to read thus far, and Baek is quite funny. I am already intrigued by how they’ll meet again in that club, and I am honestly so glad I found this. For a chanbaek stan I feel stupid for just now discovering you and your fics haha. Anyways, i’ll look forward to reading more :)

Chapter 52: i’m really overwhelmed by the events occurring all at the same time WHICH IS GREAT. bc real life is just as complex and i love it. i can’t make up my mind on whether to root for chanbaek or not. baek growing up the way he did and making him the way he is now really hurt chanyeol. i’m just glad baek is getting his life together for himself now. anyway, i can’t wait for the next chapter! thank you for sharing!

Chapter 3: OMG OK I AM FINALLY HERE \O/ TTT why haven't I read this earlier !!! This is starting out great, I'm so intrigued! ;; I love how this has two POVs; it's very interesting to see their train of thought and to see eo from eo's point of view TT

Oh noes we have a smol poor overworked Baekhyun TTTTT Poor bb has so much on his mind ;; His situation at the office is very genuine even //I// can feel the stress just from reading it lmao no wonder he's so exhausted D; I am already feeling attached to the characters by the way ;; and it's only C3! Your Chanyeol especially u___u he's turning out to be such a PRECIOUS BUB omg I love him already! That scene where he sleeps at the station, waiting to take the first train home? The sight is so soft :( I want to cuddle him he's so TT His soft spot for Baekhyun is soooo cute eeeep I'm squealing >ㅁ<

Phoenix Rising TT it's the act that's going to kill me isn't it ;;

Your writing is amazing as usual ♡ I love the descriptions in this; the scenes are set very well and I can visualize everything clearly and your words flow super well ;; What I've always loved about your writing is that it's very inclusive??? omg there is DEFINITELY a better word I can't think rn AAAAA what I mean to say is that, every scene isn't just about the characters, their environment, the side characters, the people around them are well included and it's nice to read it really makes me feel like I'm there? Like hovering and overseeing the scene HAHAHHA XD On to the next chapters >< ily ill brb

Chapter 51: You know, I should feel angry at Jongin because what he did was really uncalled for, but I can't help but feel sympathy towards him. I feel like he's left in the dark and someone should really try explaining the situation to him, but then I wonder, is he too far gone from reason? Would it make a difference?
And maybe I feel a little resentful towards Baek for not coming clean to CEO Park, though I understand why he hasn't done so. I just got the idea that he was ready to lose it all, including his job and reputation, but he still covered up the truth. He needs to realize he's not the only one who can lose everything and jumping off a bridge won't solve anyone's problems.

*sighs* The last few chapters made me cry. Why did you make me cry? Wae?!
Chapter 19: Wait. So after manyyyyy chapters later I just realized that Baekkie is cheating ??
Chapter 26: I cried. Congratulations to you. I feel for JaeHee, I do. I have been in her shoes, so recently, and it's so fresh in my mind. And I have been in Baekhyun's shoes as well, long back. And it's never easy, is it? You wrote this chapter so sensitively. You write very well :) I wish JaeHee well. I hope she finds someone who can give her what Baekhyun couldnt.
Chapter 50: :'''''''''')
