"I am the son of Shikaku Nara and Yoshino Nara, formerly Yoshino -,"
This makes it sound like before she was married, Yoshino Nara's name was Yoshino Yoshino. It sounds a bit odd, but of course if this could be what you were going for, and in the end Yoshino's maiden name really doesn't make much of a difference.
Anyways, I saw this story when I was checking up on that awesome Harry Potter story you've got going on, and I have to say, this looks like a very promising start. Shikamaru actually using that massive brain of his instead of being a lazy-ass like the rest of the Nara, well, I haven't actually read anything like that before, and it sets up a story that I very much want to read.
Good luck with both of your stories, you're a great writer with awesome ideas!

"Even one of the civilian-born girls - Sakura Haruno - could answer those types of questions perfectly."
Both of Sakura's parents are ninja. They weren't in the manga, but that's only because Kishimoto couldn't come up with a place to add them in.

You know there comes a time when out of lack of things to read I click on the author link in my favorites list, just to see what else they've written.
And lo and behold, I find this gem, published just 2 HOURS AGO.
Followed and Fav'ed

Hey! I like the idea for the story, and I'm a sucker for Shikamaru, so it's really nice to see something so promising coming up. Just one tiny thing: We seem to have an abnormal number of Aburames in Konoha, including Choji and Kiba, besides Shino ... Just wanted to point it out xD

This style is totally different from The Evil Overlord List which I feel is way more upbeat, but I love it!
