I know you'll likely never read this message, but still, I'm posting this anyway.
I first read this story a LONG time ago... I'm talking more than a decade, I'm talking like when Naruto was still the new hot manga/anime that had everyone in a tizz, when people were still wondering if Yondaime truly was Naruto's dad. To date... despite that it's stopped at Chapter 23, and will likely never update again - it's still one of my FAVORITE mpreg fics, ever.
This fic has been my favorite for so many reasons, and KakaIru wasn't even a pairing I cared about. I absolutely loved the interactions you had between Kakashi and Iruka, their banter, Kakachi's wildly inappropriate comments and Iruka turning from a dolphin to a shark in the blink of an eye, the whole tenderness of the whole pregnancy and everything, Iruka wearing down Sasuke enough to talk with him AND the revelation of why he made a better person to approach Sasuke instead of Kakashi... I could go on and on about how much I love this story, nearly every part of it is a delight. I absolutely still love the part where the children chart Iruka's progress on the wall -
it stands out so much in my head as one of the sweetest things I've ever come across in any preg fic.
You've probably moved on with your life and whatnot, and I hope things are a lot better for you, wherever you are. I don't have any expectations of this to be completed, of course, but I figured it was due time to leave a comment on this thing which I've quietly kept at the back of my mind for a good part of a decade to squee over whenever I need something to pick me up. Your writing is just an absolute joy to read, and it's so descriptive (Kakashi's freaking poetry every time he hits on Iruka, man) and easy to follow. I hope you're doing well with life in general, as well as whatever you're writing for (if you're still in fandoms, or writing, or maybe you've even started on your own original work!). Thank you for creating this work.

I just found this little gem, and it's pretty amazing. I usually skip mpregs because they are so damn biologically implausible and then skip over all the issues and emotions that comes with that kind of situation. I know it's been a long time since this has been updated. And that's ok. If the muse is dead or in deep hibernation, then that's how it is. I'm just glad that you left up 23 fantastic chapters to be found and enjoyed.

He really does have the worst timing. I feel horrible for him, but also for Naruto because he'll be mortified when he finds out why exactly Kakashi is furious with him.

How I love the way you twisted Sasuke into an elaborate knot and then went about untangling him. And in such a way that reading between the lines unmasks far more than what's actually written.

I love how nervous Kakashi was and how down to earth Iruka was. It's such a great contrast! But it really makes me think of how that would have gone if their roles were reversed. Perhaps they should warn Naruto about this next time they see him?

It's been ten years since you last updated this wonderful story. I'm hopeful your muse will wonder its way back to this story before another ten years pass.

LOL. I love this. And I can't imagine the amount of pre-pubescent angst you get when the idiot clicking runs out of chapters. I'm glad that I mostly write for fandoms where the target audience is usually a bit older. You're a trooper. Great read.

Why do they keep using the young male honorific with Sakura? I can't imagine her being okay with that

Such a good story! I've read the whole thing in 4 days. I'm sorry that your work seams to be so crazy. I teach preschoolers, so I know that work can get verry tiring sometimes ... or all the time, anyway I just wanted you to know that I truely love your story. You are a gifted writer, and though I really would like it if you updated again, I do not wish to harangue you about it.
I will shortly be looking through all your other stories, because you have such an enjoyable writing style in this one. Please do your best! :-)
