I think the Tsunade-influenced side of Sakura came through beautifully! Of course the traits of her friends and teachers would rub off on her to some extent; I like the idea of Sakura going wild, since she's usually portrayed as so responsible and even a little uptight.
I didn't expect the appearance of Team Taka, but I liked their inclusion all the time. We never really got to see how Suigetsu, Juugo, and Karin would have reacted to Sakura's unexpected presence, but I feel like you captured their reactions perfectly.
Excited for this one, too! You're on a roll, gurrrrl.

Throughout each drabble, I really like your portrayal of Tsunade as Sakura's mentor, mother figure, and confidante. It's one of the relationships that isn't explored as thoroughly in the manga as I feel it should be, but one of the most significant to the story. Tsunade helped Sakura evolve into a strong kunoichi and a skilled medic-nin; she is more relevant to Sakura's development later in the series than even Sasuke or Naruto are. I like how you take the time to explore Tsunade's connection with Sakura, even in an AU story like this.
I like where this is going so far! You did a great job painting Sakura as a new but determined character, and even though she's not yet comfortable in her surroundings, she's got enough of a backbone to stand up to Sasuke and catch him off-guard. I like that dynamic, I'm curious to see what you do with it next.
You're an amazing writer, and this was an amazing chapter! Thank you! :)

Another exciting prospective idea! This story started off good and looks to be getting even better!
I love Sasuke's attitude, and his condescending manner of speaking to Neji, who had no choice but to take it. It's Sasuke's character perfectly, his arrogance and proclivity towards provoking others he views as beneath him. And I love how all of that is discarded when he knows Sakura needs him.
Another well-written, original chapter :) Thanks for sharing!

What an intriguing idea!
Most of us want to believe that Sakura would never betray Konoha for Sasuke, and that he'd come back beore that was even an option. But this is a conceivable, well-written idea that I don't think I've seen before: the concept of Sakura throwing away absolutely everything for Sasuke.
I loved how you wrote Tsunade's relationship with Sakura, how she was so extremely disappointed in her decision and her anger at Sakura's comparison of Sasuke to Dan, but how she ultimately understood Sakura's motivation. It's Tsunade to a T.
This is a wonderful story so far, I'm excited to see what happens next :) Thank you for sharing!

Sad but realistic, I love this :)

I like the theme for this one :) You really know how to end your stories.

"Eager to finish all of this and live on."
I like that, I wish it had been like that in the actual manga :\. Also, Sakura does deserve to be chased by the boys now :]

Askdjhaskjd this is an amazing idea, please continue it! It's like The Walking Dead. And you've had so many ideas up until now that I was wondering what you would come up with next, and this is great! :D

Haha love this one! Very cute idea.
| Pepper 6/27/12 . chapter 11
Love this! You can put them in any and every situation and make it good!

I spelled Paparazzi wrong.

This chapter is FANTASTIC. XD You gotta love the Papparazzi, huh? They make the best headlines...they're a bit true too. -

I've never really been all that fond of zombie stories...but this one I loved! I do hope you continue it. I liked how the way Sakura survived was more through resourcefulness than fighting, sometimes I find that people overdo the fighting scenes with zombies, making them too epic to be realistic. You did a really good job with this!

For some reason, until you mentioned it was Sasuke I thought it was Itachi. XD Still, it's great either way. :)

This is cute, and I love how you keep Sasuke in character. I can't quite figure out why this is titled Wild Horses, though.
