Whoa. I've never seen a story quite like this before. What irks me is that he'll never be with her..well, at least it doesn't seem so the way you described it...( But it was such a sweet story, I've got to love it.

Wow. I just finished this beautifully written story, and wow. I have mixed feelings about it though. I love the story, don't get me wrong. But I feel like Sasuke and Sakura deserve a happy ending, er, happier then that. Poor Sasuke-kun went through so much in your story. I loved it though. This story is a definate *fave*

Oh my gosh! You put Obito in this? I was crying!

Wow, Naruto really got me jumping. It was like watching Naruto on tv, when he's about to do something drastic but good. I was jumping, swinging my arms, yelling, "Go Naruto! Get him! Tell him!" Then I was laughing. Wow.

*whew* And the end comes. And such a bittersweet ending it is too. I'm surprised he's still intent on carrying out his revenge. Has he not learned anything from the journey? But I suppose he has, and yet learning and actually putting the knowledge into action are often two very different things. What a pity.
Anyway, this is really a great story - very well-written and touching. I hope you do eventually start on a sequel.

Ah, so this was the "unexpected" ending that you warned us about. It's a bit sad, but not entirely so. It is still somewhat of a "happy" ending.

I'm speechless. What a poignant chapter, with the appearance of light in the darkness. I loved how you described him as "wisdom itself and honor and strength and sacrifice"; it was silly for me not to think that he would show up in a tale of self-sacrifice and redemption like this.

Definitely a fairy tale, in all its cruelty and beauty. It's good to see that he chose to give up the past, rather than the present and future; hopefully, after this, he will continue to focus on them as well.

Wow, I'm stunned by the price. Certainly, I've been wondering what sort of price a dead person could pay, but ... wow. I'm touched by the depth of feeling in this chapter.

"I noticed I've made Sasuke more softer, but I guess that's because noone else is around to watch him act that way; if you read the manga, right before he leaves, the decision is harder and more emotional than he lets on when Sakura confronts him"
Indeed. Really, no one could be as dark as Sasuke is without being a very emotional person. If his departure from Konoha and his only remaining "family" didn't hurt, he would haven't felt such a burning need to leave.

In one of the earlier chapters, I thought for a moment that Sasuke would leave in a hurry, without explanation. I'm glad he took the time to say a proper farewell. The scene was very moving.

Naruto works his magic! It's surprising that a character so annoyingly loud could inspire so much hope, and you captured that aspect of his character very well.

This is certainly turning out to be a painful encounter for Sasuke. I can see that's he's dreadfully torn now. It would have been interesting if they thought to ask him about Itachi.
In any case, I see you've chosen for the parents not to remember, and that Sasuke has chosen not to tell them. I can't help but wonder that, if he did tell them, perhaps they'd tell him that they didn't need revenge. And maybe he'd be able to get on with his life, finally.
But then again, I suppose this is a story of redemption, where Sasuke has to find his own path away from the darkness.
