And, what's not to love about that team? :)

Best. Team. Gai. Fic. Ever.
You've captured so many facets, so many nuances of their relationship, and you've done it perfectly. Everyone is fully in character, but very richly developed at the same time. The histories and habits that you've given them are believable and convincing. Not only are you an excellent writer, I love the format you have chosen to present these facts in; the segments are highly effective in the way that they vary in length. I especially love how you tied it all together at the end by connecting the last story to the first, the conclusion of the fic to their beginning as a team.
All of the snippets were fantastic. No criticisms. I laughed at the moments of youthful enthusiasm and team bonding and I felt genuine emotion when I read about their pains (Hyuuga Yuuki's maiden name! Lee's family! Oh lord, the psyche test and Iruka's reaction!). I really appreciate your take on Tenten too - you really understand her character.
I hope this wasn't too overwhemling, but I just really loved reading your piece. Great work, and thanks for sharing!

These stories are hilarious!
Neji is a freaky mutant...interesting take. And tanking the psyche test!
Tenten and being amidextrous...so much fun! I'm ambidextrous, and I love surprising people (or at least confusing them) by switching hand while I'm doing things like writing, or eating. And playing myself in wii games rocks...though my right keeps losing to my left in ping pong...
Lee...the only one not proud of his heritage! Poor kid. He will become great though, Yosh!

Ha ha ha! I love it! You are pretty darn talented, you know that?

That was funny and not so funny in turn. I love you're depiction of Neji and Tenten's relationships, and I want to here more about Neji's mom! I also particularly liked the incident with the fire and the scroll and Neji learning Kaiten. Yeah..Neji and Tenten are two of my favorite characters, in case you couldn't tell. I love you're writing style-it's so pretty. Have a peanut butter cookie!

VERY nice story; I love the way you thread the different snippets and snapshots together (for what's probably my single favorite team in the whole series, no less). Your insights into their characters are dead on, and very touching. You're absolutely right; you just KNOW that Neji and Shino would react that way, that Lee is going to "die spectacularly" one day, and that Iruka would flunk Neji on psychological grounds with the force of a brick off the edge of the Empire State Building.
In terms of suggestions: the main one that struck me was to wonder how Tsunade would be the only one who knew that Neji had those stealth skills at ten? Wasn't she away until he was 14? And, for that matter, why would he want to conceal such an ability from his teammates? It just seemed a little odd.
Anyway, that's just a minor thing. Overall, this was a really impressive, enjoyable read. You really bring these people to life, and provide some fascinating background to the lives of these characters. Thanks much for sharing this!

Wow, this story was amazing, I totally loved it.

B/C of the fic, I now love this team.
| hauntful yay 5/31/08 . chapter 1
Oh, that was so nice! More people should do these- my favorite part was how Neji deals with migrains, and how Lee is the only descendant of real ninja. Great job!
| Mariagoner 5/25/08 . chapter 1
This is an amazing character study of the team. Wonderful job!

Aw, you can write warm fuzzy! It's a warm fuzzy with a couple dark, sharp-edged burrs firmly stuck in its fuzziness, but still, a warm fuzzy! I love it. You are a truely excellent writer. I'll keep checking back in the future. (incidently, I'm not reading the zelda fic because I haven't played any of the zelda games, and am avoiding spoilers in case I do in the future.)

Squee! This is just so nicely done! Everything flows so nicely together and their characteristics fit perfectly.
This was my favorite line:
Little things like having no idea what he was doing never stopped Neji before.
| Roseveare 3/14/08 . chapter 1
This was great. I really enjoyed all the backstory you built up here.
| Muria 1/22/08 . chapter 1
What insight... This is very powerful...
I enjoyed reading it! I hope you write a lot more about Team Guy! You have a really cool perception of them.
