I've never read a self-insert before. I usually see the letters 'OC' and skip right over them, but this seemed...I don't know. Sort of interesting? Or maybe I was just bored. Either way I quite like this.

Kabuto tried to kill Sasuke out of what seemed to be jealousy. Why not Kimimaro as well?
Lovely fight scene.
| Sheaman 4/24/13 . chapter 30
No, don't feel depressed. This was a lovely depiction of just what could go wrong with this kind of training. It is not often done, and I applaud you for it.
And for the story as a whole, but I'm not finished with it yet; I will likely write a more comprehensive review at the end. Let me just say that I like what you have done with this, and her forgetting key events in the Narutoverse makes a lot of sense, even the bits that seem so aggravatingly memorable.

The immense detail really astonishes me and really sticks out from the rest since most are about telling the story but it seemed as if you were really immersed into your story and concepts. Because I could really see how dedicated you were in this fanfic, it provided me a great story that got me finished with what was left of it in a few days. Even though you booted Sakura out of team 7 I liked how you still made her important. She wasn't just some ex-kunoichi, she began specializing in medicine. I also really liked how although you did follow the canon you changed it in areas in the original story to make it really interesting. It wasn't just a boring retelling of the original and a replacement and wasn't a "Oc X Canon Character" but revolved around friendship which was what Naruto (series) really revolved around. Although it may not revolve around friendship as the fanfic goes on but when you just began a story without the idea of setting up your OC with another Canon Character it was nice and fresh. I see a lot of potential as many who also read it probably thought so as well. This may even be my favorite fanfic of 2013. I just hope as you still write this that you don't lose your touch in writing, your story truly is entertaining and beautiful and genius. A story like this in a website like this is hard to find so keep up the good work.

I was rereading this fic and came upon the Shikako/ Gaara part...maannn they are adorable! I really hope you make the pairing Shikako/Gaara ;)

I LOVE your story! I love how you twist the story in your own way and I can always picture the battle scenes clearly in my head. Just a few questions, are you going to write chapters on all the filler episodes or are you going to move on to Naruto Shippuuden? Is Shikako going to get a summon, because I think a panther summon would suit her style and through them she would achieve Shadow Sage Mode.
Your Faithful Reader,

Wonderful for share your time writen that.
I really liky the thought of the Self-insert character . my favorite was the "sword of thuder god" lightsaber that was epic like only lightsaber can be .

Can I say I might be in love? I found this and have spent every second of my free time in the last 2 days reading to reach this point, and now I'm off to go check out the sidestory as well. You are amazing. The depth of though is clear as well as the effort put into Shikako. I love the moments between her and her team (loved the bonding between her and Kakashi) as well as her and her brother. I'm fascinated about how things are ganna go. I wonder if she will ever reveal/be discovered that she has been reincarnated. On an even more fangirlish stance- I loved your Gaara (he is tied with Naruto as my favorite character from this anime). The picture he got made my heart all warm. So I'm hoping to see more of him. I'm really excited to see what comes next!

Ohohoho! Things are certainly progressing interestingly! ;D
I must say, this is by far my favorite SI/OC Fanfic EVER. You have quite the skill with plots, words (those battle scenes), and characters, and I am thoroughly enjoying myself. I love your planning and logic and I love Shikako's logic and traits. I wish I could elaborate what and how much I love this story but sadly, I am still recovering from the sheer awesomeness I just read. *collapse in a puddle of awe and amazement*
-WARNING: VERY LONG. ALSO I AM SORRY ABOUT HOW MANY SUGGESTIONS AND THOUGHTS I PUT IN. I HOPE IT DOES NOT SEEM I AM PRESSURING OR DEMANDING ANYTHING TO BE INCORPORATED INTO YOUR FIC. I AM SIMPLY THROWING OUT SOME IDEAS I HAD. THANK YOU, IF YOU ARE READING THIS, AND PLEASE AHVE A LOVELY DAY, YOU BEAUTIFULLY BRILLIANT WRITER YOU.-
I am curious if Sasuke will still leave the village. I have a feeling he will but now...for some different reasons. Perhaps to stop his friends and those he's come to love from being hurt? And he knows, especially after this, that Orochimaru will continue attacking directly and indirectly until he obtains Sasuke (and his body). As well as anger because Sasuke isn't powerful enough to keep everyone safe now? Hmmm.
I'm not sure. It...definitely feels like Sasuke will leave Konoha. However, you are the master plot weaver and I trust that you have something in mind for Sasuke's development and character.
However, if he does...I feel as if Shikako should be there. As he's leaving. Not to tell him to stop. Not to go with him (though maybe she would think about it if only to keep him safe? And then she immediately shoots down the idea. Or perhaps she can sense him straying to the gates. Knows he's going to leave, thinks about going with him, and then just decides to go talk to him?). But, more like 'Hey. I know you're going to leave and seek out Orochimaru. And I'm not going to stop you. I have my own duties here in Konoha and I will not go with you. Only you can forge your own path and if you want to do this...then, that's okay. I'll miss you, yes, but...you have to do what you have to do. Just...be careful. And remember the numer one rule of Team 7...No dying'.
I just...ugh. Feels, man.
But if Shikako does talk to him if he chooses to leave...I kinda hope you'll put the number rule of Team 7 in there. I remember it from the Zabuza and Haku arc (Which by the way are we ever going to see them again? It would be pretty cooljust a suggestion for a future chapter possibly), after Sasuke almost died...and I really liked it.
Oh! And I know you talked about how there would be no romance developing since hey, they are only 13, and Shikako isn't mentally 13 and is not comfortable with being in a relationship with an actual 13 year old or anyone younger or close to her, but...I think if you choose to continue into the Shippuden timeline...perhaps integrating some romance? If not Shikako liking someone, some liking her? She would be viewed as a regular teenager, since no one is aware of her, ah, more mature mindset and some (say side and or main characters) could possibly develop a crush/feelings for her.
Maybe even...Sasuke? /shot. ;
Sorryyyyy...but, I am picking up some possible romantic vibes from him that could be played upon. Shikako is close to him and as been there for him...maybe you could address how he (and other characters) feels and thinks about her...not romantically...but just honestly. If not in this story (since it is in Shikako's perspective) but in "Sunshine Sidestories" (which I also love. 3).
I also think it would be awesome if Shikako begins to like the Icha icha series and bonds with Kakashi That would be really cute C:
Ahahah! Sorry, for the long review! However, I wish you luck in finishing your story and send my sincere expressions of love and adoration for this fic. I can't wait for the next update, but please take all the time you need! I understand real life coming first, writer's block, or simply trying to make sure the chapter is just right. So, take the time that you need and please have a lovely day :)

This chapter FEELS like depression. Honestly, very reminiscent of people undergoing severe depression. The lack of motivation is the worst part.
Kudos to your story and writing skill.

UPDATE PLEASE I AM DROOLING FOR MORE
please don't let this piece of excellent work collect dust
| Gearworks 4/15/13 . chapter 1
creative in the use of OC and good weaving of plotline
| PsychoticSky 4/14/13 . chapter 33
I really enjoyed this chapter, the two matches were just awesome. I'm glad Ino was against Temari as a kunoichi vs kunoichi thing. If there was one thing that really irritated me abouth her when they first showed her (apart from the natural (in kishimotos mind) attraction to sasuke) it was her taunting, espescially to TenTen with that whole little girl thing, no offense to her character, Ino put up a good fight and actually could have won if she had thought through on the last attack.
Shikamaru and Shino's fight was really interesting, I'm glad he didn't forfeit...it seems Shikako comes in really handy as a seal supplier. ;D
And gotta say, I loved the banter her and Kiba had going on. XD
| PsychoticSky 4/14/13 . chapter 30
I'm reading the chapters of DoS again and I'm glad I did, seeing as how I forgot about alot of the earlier events that shaped Shikako. She really just intergrates herself so well in the story...This emotionless state of hers was seriously freaky though.
