I just finished reading the message that you constructed on your profile. I wish to inform you that I am relieved to know that there shall be no abandoning of your stories. I apologize for not seeing it prior to my initial review. Good luck and have fun writing. I look forward to reading more.

I started reading this story a few days ago. It is lovely. You have me hooked, fixated and very much intrigued. I would understand if you feel that I am in no position to ask this of you-given how I have only recently stumbled upon your work and become a fan, compared to all your other long-time fans, but please do not abandon this story. The preparation is done, the stage, set. All that is left is for you to decide in what direction and manner this beautifully and meticulously written story should take. Congratulations on your success thus far.

Okay, so this is officially my favorite ItaSaku fic of all time. Wow.
A new story arc! I think a jealous rival figure sounds like a great idea. Kiba is a...rather unlikely possibility, and honestly I wondered if Sakura wasn't eyeing Neji up a bit on the mission (the long hair thing comes to mind), but based on this chapter I think Naruto is in the best situation to intervene between them. Which is awful, because he is absolutely the one character I want to understand Sakura's situation above all others. It would be emotionally crushing if he didn't take the news about Itachi well...oh I can't even think about it, too many feels! I don't even know what masochistic streak made me feel the need to open my big mouth and suggest it! D:
And here is the part where I'm supposed to beg and plead for an immediate update, but I read the blurb in your profile about not abandoning your fics and will refrain. Instead I urge you to take your time and work when you're interested in it. Whether the next update comes 1, 5, or 20 years from now, you bet your ass I'll be jumping for joy because I won't be forgetting this fic anytime soon. THANK YOU FOR WRITING THIS!
In the meantime I shall content myself with your other work. :D

Best ItaSaku kiss ever? Quite possibly. 10/10.
Regarding your author's note, I hate that reviewers made you feel that was necessary to explain. All fanfiction characters are adaptations of their originals (I believe it's impossible to anyone to be "in character" outside of the context of the source material), and the question is merely whether a given adaptation is likable, well-rounded, believable, and a good fit for the context of a fic. All of which I personally find your Sakura to be. I agree with your analysis of her character from Itachi's perspective, but honestly I would've never used such negative words as 'ditzy' or 'annoying' to describe her. She's rusty and naive, sure, but just as intelligent as her canon counterpart, and 150% more ballsy to boot. She deduces everything that Itachi doesn't want her to, and she DOES contribute to their strategizing, even if the others don't always agree with her. I like her.

"'I tested the limits of your attraction to me for future reference,' Itachi explained, his voice toneless and clinical."
You should have seen my face when Itachi just put that out there. No really. I'm sure it was priceless. Their dialogue is like a chess game. They say so much with so little, or nothing at all, or all the wrong things on purpose. Or on accident. The reader has to tease out the truth from all the red herrings and it's a delightful challenge, because of course the characters don't really understand themselves either. I think. Sometimes they do? It's so hard to say!

Oh, I'm sorry for spamming your inbox, but I can't resist reviewing something this good. Even over and over again, haha. It's been a long time since I've been so enamored of a fic.
I love how Sakura and Itachi can't stop pushing each other's buttons (and Sakura doesn't even know she's doing it!). Both of their reactions to this situation are so believable, and their relationship is developing in such an understated way. And there's more subtext than I can handle, like 60% of this story isn't even written on the page, I love it!

Wow. Just, wow. I am ENTHRALLED with this fic. Instant fav, and it's only the second chapter?
Clearly I am putty in your hands.
