I had read this story long ago, didn't review it, and had forgotten it. The angsty, dependent, and desperate relationship you paint between Ino and Sakura works wonderfully. They truly love each other, but they're often just so mean to each other and themselves. Your narrative prose is very poetic and helps create a more hazy, dramatic, tipping edge for the story.

Interesting and realistic story somehow. I liked it. The very small parts when they actually do exchange real sentences with each other are well fit as well. Very nicely written. From both perspective but without getting the feeling you're jumping and squeezing in stuff between the two.

For some reason, I feel I must review in lyric. Perhaps it's because it's 7 AM and I've been up since 10:30 AM yesterday:
If only you knew what's inside of me now,
You wouldn't want to know me, somehow,
But you will love me tonight;
I know we'll be all right
In the end.

Also, I think this is the most ninjaing I've seen in one of your Naruto fics yet. You really like the social interaction stuff, don't you?

Liked, real suspenseful. but you need to let more on about why Ino's such a monster. It seems lacking...

This was great. Very powerful and full of emotion. Well done.

100x, my admiration for your fiction is indescribable. (I've read your other works too, just couldn't find the right words to comment). Actually, maybe I've reviewed before...well I can't bother to remember right now.
You wear cliches in new ways, your prose is elegant, tender, and just beautiful. Somehow you manage to keep the character's authenticity in just the right way, while still in tune with their hearts.
I luuff it!
I love the title even more. Would it be ok if I used it in a poem I'm working on? It fits perfectly...I'll send it to you if you want. But it's not fanfiction-related nor is the writing anywhere near as talented as yours.
Continue writing, you've just converted me to the world of Naruto fandom. :P

Bittersweet, but I like it.

It was wonderful and cute.
| Melitza 7/17/08 . chapter 1
Profound. The depth and startling clarity you provide in each little section is amazing. Granted, I still don't necessarily get Ino's promiscuity, except perhaps, that it is just a part of her nature... and I (assume) the ending is hinting at they're kinda-sorta-together again...
But anyway - this was amazing in the complexity and the poignancy. I think it deserves a FAV! _

I've never seen anyone write Sakura and Ino together this believably. Ever. It's stunning. I was crying at times. It was achingly beautiful. You're writing is so fluid and seamless and rich. I feel well fed after having read this.

That was beautiful.
I see it, I saw it, and it was wonderful. I was there, in the hospital, looking at Ino's face.
I remember that song from My Girlfriend, In Canada; the last one, the Bob Dylan one.
This...I'd love to find something as...pretty as this again.
There's actually a lot of hinty InoSaku in the real series; not once does she actually say anything about loving Sasuke, just 'You're not good enough for Sasuke-kun.'
Thank you. So very, very much.

masterpiece... is all i can say... :,)

You've got me speechless. Goddammit, you have me speechless.
| Nozomi-sama 11/4/07 . chapter 1
There is so much depth to your writing. It's like a peel of the other layers to see what's underneath kind of writing. I think it's fabulous.
This one-shot was very bittersweet. But Ino and Sakura were spectacular in this. I got this sort of fragile feel from them though out the story. But then that one violent scene manifested their strong feelings.
Oh, and I've been meaning to favorite you forever, but I kept on forgetting. So, yeah, I'm favoriting you because your awesome.
