Reactions and Reviews

Message (not) received describes the story of Yuuri, left behind after Victor’s death in an accident. This story does not employ typical methods of narrative; instead, the author uses snippets of texts conversations, documents, and letters to set up a clear and stylistic story. This is a very unique fic with a distinct persona that is very enjoyable intriguing. It is incomplete, with promises of more chapters to come as the story unfolds. I really enjoyed this fic and thought the author’s ambitious story-telling method created a vivid yet understated scenario.[1]
Nice use of short and succinct sentences to drive in the feelings. The setup is a bit vague so I'd really like to know what happened.[2]
