This is how I always imagined for the manga to end. Very nice with keeping in character.

that awkward moment when you realize that sakura did indeed stupidly wait

Oh wow, what happened to you. NaruSaku? This is so OCC from all sides I can't stand it. Should have paid attention to the summary.

You captured my exact thought of how it would be if Sasuke came back, expecting Sakura to be waiting for him. All the fanfics I see, though well written and interesting, sound like fanciful dreams of 12-13 yr olds. My realist mind just sees it that, if I'm Sakura and the only connection we had when we were 12 was him disliking me, then the next time I see him he has no qualms against killing me? I'm not going to be all lovey-dovey and only slightly wary of trusting him, with a relationship starting only months, weeks or sometimes days after he comes back. Not to mention i feel it would be kind of pathetic and sad for Sakura to not have a relationship with someone else, when Sasuke seems like such a lost cause.
... I've done another mini-rant... sorry bout that...

Ah it's so hard to find a good story in this site anymore so to finally find one is awesome. I loved this oneshot! Keep it up, your writing is beautiful!

Huh. Yeah, the SasuSaku ship takes a lot of plot and character development for me to fully support. The same goes for any ship Sakura is in. Pfft, I'm a sucker for any good, well-written story.
Thanks for writing and posting this one!

You are brilliant. I absolutely love every characterization of Sasuke you manage to create in your stories, because for some reason, they are so believable! I'm a huge supporter of Sasuke and Sakura being together, but I totally agree - sometimes we need to see Sasuke knocked down a few pegs.
Although I have to admit, I almost thought maybe we'd see Hinata at the end in the bar, watching Naruto and Sakura from a distance, to show Sasuke that someone else was on the same page as him. (Well, not entirely the same page, since Hinata has loved Naruto since forever.) I thought it might be pretty interesting if that were the case. To give us some hope for Sasuke being happy at the end. Instead, we got some angst. But what a heart-chilling angst it was. I loved every second!

Oh god! This is the third story from you I've read! And I love this too! iloveitiloveitiloveit!
| unearthing chapter 1 . 7/8/2014
This was awesome! I've read so many stories where Naruto gets left in the dust or Sakura waits forever and treated so cheaply. It's nice to see them be happy together and for Sasuke to realise his failure and that people move on!

this is the first postcanon narusaku fic I've ever read. And promptly love.
sasusaku has been my ship from day one. don't ask me why, it just did. but in the light of recent chapters, I think many shippers have been forced to re-think and become more critical. at least it's true for me. I finally asked myself 'why', and I didn't like what I'm finding one bit.
their 'relationship,' if there's ever one, is tragic at best, so don't ask me the worst part. I hate to admit this, I do. unless Kishimoto (if he ever got his shit together [like, seriously? Kagura? what the fuck?]) prove otherwise, it'll remain true and impossible.
So that's why I truly adore this fic, because you obviously think deeply and it all make sense. it's fair and when all's said and done, all team 7 members get what they really, truly deserve.
well now, for the nth time, there are still amazing sasusaku postcanon fics out there, like Entropy and Variance. and impossible or not, it'll still take a long while for me to forget a long-loved ship, so I'll still hope, yeah?
