Since it's been ten years I'm sure you won't be continuing this story :( This is the second time I've read it and it's so good! If there's anyway you'd ever consider coming back to it, I really wish you would. I've fallen in love with these characters!

Wow. That's really intense. I hope you update soon now that your last authors notes indicated that you picked up this story again. Thank you for a good read.

It's been a long time since you've added a new chapter. Please keep writing Chains and Flowers. I really want to know what happens next. No one can even guess the outcome. Please...

Wonderful story, I must just say.
For a while I was confused on what would come from it. But as I got to know Conari a bit more it was easy to follow the story line and I soon found the story quite interesting. How Conari struggles mainly to maintain a good imagine in public while also wanting her own identity. Then having to struggle with her sexuality and to be accepted for who she is. That ain't easy I can tell.
I will start with one of the more interesting parts of the story. Her relationship with her family. I'll start with Sora, the girl seem to have grown a bit on her sister, which I think is really good. When the story begun I was under the impression said little sister mainly did what her mother taught her when it came to respect and treat her sister. But as they did come to share well friends of sort they grew closer. Quite nicely done there. Moving on to Georgia. I can quite clearly see what the problem is. She is a racist little bitch. However the main problem I think between Conai and her is that the man in the family had someone before her, a Indian non the less (how dare he?) and had Conari who he loves very dearly though he's a bit of pushover and don't stand up for her, but perhaps he will more now when Aunt Deepa is coming into the picture. Over all I get the control and possessive feeling over her. She want to be in charge. The father, I don't really dislike him, it's more that he feels like a passive figure, always there lurking around in the background technically have the power but either to oblivious about things going on or too much of a coward to use it.
Moving on with Brent, I rather like the dynamic between her and Conari, even from start it was clear that they held interest for one and another. One even sexual or emotionally attracted faster than the other. I love how you've developed their relationship from secret friendship to full out fight with knifes involved to a secret relationship of sort. My favourite part that so much reminds me of a friend is Conari's insecurity in bed. I find this part among the most realistic parts of the story. Where most would make it the easiest and simplest thing in the world, Conari struggles to all the way. That was excellent done.
Moving on I also liked the whole Misao/Brent/Conari situation and how things between the three unfolds and what becomes of things. The way the three feel and the things unsaid between them.
And lastly I'd like to mention Anastacia. Since I myself is by far from the "popular" kids or the extreme tomboyish people but rather something in between I kind of got the bad vibes from her. But I couldn't put my finger on what it was. I suppose that "fake" lifestyle creeps me out a little and I don't think anyone underneath really is like that, but it's simply a cover for something else. Some beast ready to lunge out with its claws and drag you back into its cave. But even so, I found it odd how it was later revealed about her odd behaviour when with her boyfriend. I can't shake the feeling that she by far creepier than she gives appearance of being despite the current situation between herself and Conari. It feels she has something planned and at the right time and place will execute this plan of hers. Whatever that is. One thing feels very clear to me though I might be wrong, is that she's somehow obsessed with Conari.
Over all I love your way of writing, while I normally find it harder to write from first POV myself I also like it by far better than third. I like how you as a reader can really connect with a character. Much like how you can't see other's feeling from your own eyes but simply judge from what you think. I think you've done that excellently throughout the story so far. Those sort "third pov moments" are quite neatly done though at times a bit confusing when trying to figure out which description goes to whom and what they're on about. But I think you did it better than I think most would've. I do feel that those wouldn't be completely necessary though. I think you would be able to get those part into the story anyway. But that could be a preference thing from my side only.
What else. Nah I don't really have that much to say. Like I said. You have a lovely way to write and describe feelings, events and even surrounding. I think your story by far feel more realistic than most I've read the last few years when it comes to FP and FF stories. You truly know how to write. I'd recommend you to keep going, if not for us reader then for yourself.
Oh, I almost forgot, the first part on the first chapter still has me going nuts. I can't let go to wonder who it's about and who it is in the hospital. It was a really nice way to introduce us to the oncoming story.
I don't think I have more things to blabber about. I'll let you be
Until Next Time
