As much as I love Ino, she's coming off as a playgirl in this story but it plays well. LOVE IT!

This will always be one of my favorite fics ever, and I have read it multiple times over this past year, but somehow I never mustered enough courage to write a review. Maybe it's because this story is too epic for words and I couldn't quite find the right ones to say how I feel about it. All I know is if ever there was a Shikamaru:Shippuden, this would definitely be it. Thank you for writing such a wonderful story, and I hope this won't be the last.

This is my favourite Shikamaru fanfic of all time!

I love how despite that Shika tries to deny his attraction to Ino, he can't help but admire her. And there's some jealousy. Ughh I don't like Temari but she's here in the story as a foil for Shikamaru and Ino's relationship. Temari is kinda disturbing for being so overtly flirtatious and lecherious. I sense a lot of angst in the future. And a lot of heart break.

That was sweet. Shika notices Ino's beauty and the hidden side most people don't get to see.

I read this about four years ago. But whenever I need inspiration to how a slow, believable, love story should I always think back to this fanfic right here.
First off, sure, fanfiction aren't our own characters, but it takes a great amount of dedication to keep them in character, likable to the reader, and to create a story around the original story.
Moving on, your story has always been the epitome of all romances of any on this whole entire site in my eyes. I was just a freshman kid in high school and I knew this writing was something special. The way you moved the plot along, how well rounded you made the other characters, and your ability to make an original character in fanfiction that could very well be just another one of Kishimoto's is inspiring. I remember reading your story and being so engrossed with it, I had to closed my door shut off everything else, and shut my blinds in my room and read. You made me laugh, cry, and go 'aww' in so many places. Best of all, you truly touched with me with compelling moments of such human emotion I just cannot believe you created something so wonderful and it was fanfiction for goodness sakes!
I'm not even into naruto now, but I still love to read my favorites parts of this story and remember how it felt. The moments when you were sure Ino and Shikamaru finally had it figured out. The times Shikamaru was torn between Temari and his feelings for Ino. Every time Ino shed her layers and revealed her true feelings in the smallest ways. This whole story was jammed packed with nuances and details that really made this a special romance. You could even write such wonderful action! Such as when Lee had been fighting Genda!
It's years later and I scold my younger self for have apparently never reviewed. But I came back to say your love story about Shikamaru and Ino had really inspired me to write romances that long, slow, and true. Now I strive to write love stories that make people laugh, cry, and feel and want so much for the characters. Because that's what you did. You are an amazing and talented writer, and I'd read an original novel from you any day of the week. Thankyou.

This was a really enjoyable story. You managed to bring out shikamaru's and ino's characters very well. It was also really fun to see the interactions with other naruto characters, especially the quirks of lee and naruto. Thanks!

This is a really good story! It's really wonderful how you managed to keep shikamaru's lazy yet suave attitude:-D Thanks for writing! Looking forward to finding out who he actually ends up with:-)
