|Reviews for The Girl From Whirlpool|
| MaliBiser 6/17/13 . chapter 27
I came across this story by googling 'Recommended Naruto fics', and I wasn't disappointed. Many people commented that you did a better job than Kishimoto, and I'd say you sure took the skeleton he offered and filled it out very well. The writing style was good and easy to follow, but what I liked most was the effort you put into embedding canon events! Brilliant how everything, every little detail fell into place! And it's highly commendable that you chose to write from Minato's POV - and stuck to it. This was a Minato story as much as MinaKushi, and I'm glad you explored his faults (kind of a goody two-shoes, a bit gullible and dull sometimes...), since in the canon he's a bit too perfect. And what is especially great is that you managed to draw Kushina's character so well, based only on how others saw her. Also, the story wasn't rushed, and the chapters were nice and loooong. The only things that weren't to my taste are that some of the minor characters were OOC (I really don't think Inoichi's a pervert), and the humor (which was really great and had me chuckling non stop) was misplaced at times. You would sometimes use humor when the situation called for serious and grave, and for me it felt like you were undermining the tone of your story. Just my opinion, and it won't stop me from faving, cause 'The Girl from Whirlpool' was a great find. :)
So... How about an update?

I really like the last 5 lines! "It's not staying is it?" says sooooo much it just makes me laugh.
Truth to be told, this is the second Naruto fanfic I've read in earnest, since I wasn't all too sure about Naruto fics. But then I found this story! I'll have you know that I stayed up reading as many chapters as I could before I had to force myself to turn off my computer.
I really like this fic! Too bad I have to wait like everyone else for the next chapter though... I had two fun days of just reading and pressing the next button over and over again about 30 times (Because I reread some chapters XD)
Very well written and awesome :) The words seem to be just flowing nonstop! There were so many times I just had to laugh at the most random things that were added, or just at how well it was woven into the dialogue.
Too bad it looks like this hasn't been updated since 2011... IT DOESN'T SEEM HALF DONE EITHER! :O
Thanks for publishing this story!

I chuckled at the Sakumo/Minato interaction in this one. X-D
| Prescripto13 6/13/13 . chapter 3
I chuckled at Kushina and Minato engaging in the "my sensei vs. your sensei" debate, and the lengths they went to in order to settle it. I imagine the allure of a masked, talented 23 year old "reformed bandit-sensei" to Kushina would have been great, lol. X-D

| ZerefinaCheney 5/25/13 . chapter 1
I demand an update
| antiyok 5/23/13 . chapter 27
i hope this gets continued...
| Mizuno Tenshi2 5/21/13 . chapter 27
Wow, I hope this story gets continued someday, it's really good. Though the ending that fits with canon is just too sad, isn't it?

I just read this for 24 hours straight, got to this chapter, and realized to my horror that it wasn't finished.
This is me, asking you, on behalf of all the people in the Naruto subreddit ( r/Naruto), to please continue this. If you need inspiration or support or just a good group of people to "hang out with" online, I'd suggest making an account and posting that you're the author of this wonderful story. They'd love you there.
And, just to let you know, you should write a book. With your writing style, you'd succeed flawlessly. This story has enthralled me, and I will continue to check up on it, as well as check r/naruto to see if you post. Please consider continuing this work of art, and thank you for taking it this far.
Schloopers, of r/Naruto

I really enjoyed this story. Wish it was longer though, but great job!
| babygong 5/18/13 . chapter 4
PLEASE update this. I'M BEGGING YOU. This story is so amazing, you can't just abandon it!
| Domos Bread 5/12/13 . chapter 1
I like it. It's just so cheesy when they get to be like that, desperately needing to confess to each other.
| TheGirlOfMyHeart 5/10/13 . chapter 27
Come on, please update. :) I'm dying for a new chapter. Oh, and by the way, I don't think I like Minato's beard, though... XD
| justanotherfan 5/9/13 . chapter 27
Oh man, I wish you'd continue this.
Excellent grammar, spelling and flow. I love your writing style so much I wish I had it. One of the stories with the best character developments in my opinion.
However, what I really love about this story is that when I'm reading it, it seems as if you're simply narrating what you see in your eyes. I don't feel like you're forcing down their throats what to feel/do when confronted with a certain circumstance because the dialogue, the characters they interact with, the situation and the like work so well together.
Oh, and this, I really like this line: "What kind of father would turn his own child into a monster?" Oh damn, that burned.
Overall, one of the best fics I've read. Yeah, and even if I said earlier that I wish you'd continue this, I won't really end up reading all the chapters anyway, since I get all emotional when it comes to the tragic end of the Namikaze-Uzumaki family (and I think I'm going to cry if you write about the ending, especially when you've portrayed Minato and Kushina so so so wonderfully). xD
