| Pearl Byakugan chapter 18 . 3/20
I'm glad that I stuck around after getting through the first chapter, as I was not happy with Sasuke's behavior. However, your writing skills were enough to pull me through, and I was pleased with the way the story unfolded. Thank you for taking the time to write "Dawning," and many thanks to your hardworking beta as well.

This was my first ShikaSaku fic (I typically read SasuSaku or NejiSaku) and AHHH. I loved it! The story had me grinning like crazy, excited to see what happens next, and rather sad to see it's done. Glad to have found this, and I'm glad to have found a new pairing I like.

I love this. So, so much. Please consider writing a sequel to this story. Finding good fanfiction to read is rare nowadays.

Thank you for writing and sharing.
I liked Shikamaru in this story.
It's amazing how Naruto is like 'He is dangerous' about Sasuke.

This fanfiction is so amazing. Shikamaru and Sakura pairing is totally epic here. I read this fic over and over again. Those two aren't my OTP but you made me realize that their pairing isn't that too bad. I really loved the plot so damn much and how you get involved the Akatsuki. It is so freaking awesome! Seriously. :P I will support your future stories about Naruto. :))

All i have to say is... Dont insult Gaara you fucking Bastard face! (Towards Sasuke)

Wise Shikamaru :) However I'm a little off-put by this weak Sakura... This is Shippuden meaning that she should be a total badass. I know, no fighting has happened yet but I liked to believe that emotionally she was better than this :/

I sincerely enjoyed your story to the point I stayed up late to finish it all. I LOVE Shikamaru and Sakura as a couple because they are so damn fun together. Both of them are geniuses in their own right, but they're so damn different they would tango, bicker and be a handful to everyone. If I could create the right situation of political intrigue, I bet they would play chess with the world... just 'cuz.
With him being as lazy as a fat barnyard cat and her being the biggest busy bee (sans Lee)... their clash is practically a class 9 on the Richter Scale.
Thank you so much for your story! I had a lot of fun reading it.

I've been reading this story for years, back when it was shiny and new before the actual manga canon made fools of all our theories. I fell out of this fandom for a while and never finished your story until just now, after a random whim got me watching Naruto again and I realized I missed this fandom. Im so happy to see you finished the story! Shikamaru and Sakura are both so brilliant i love to see them together. And you recovered so well midway through to tie it in with canon as well as you could! (Though i did get a spoiler in your authors note as imstill behind... lol oh well). Will there be a sequel? I would surely love to read one but even if you do not manage im just glad you finally finished this fantastic story and did not leave us hanging! Great fic! ShikaSaku 5eva lol!

So, I've read a few ShikaSaku stories the last week and I've come to the conclusion that yours is one of the best. Hell, only "Things you just don't talk about" by Enodia, is on the same level of awesomeness (but I might be biased 'cause it was the reason I even got into this pairing).
Your fanfiction truly had some epic moments, though. And you keep Sakura and Co. in character. I've heard that some people gave you a hard time about your portrayal of Sasuke, but I think that you did everything correctly. He is a really selfish person, who showed until recent manga chapters not even a hint of redemption and even yet I'm still unconvinced. He tried to kill his former teammates a few times too often in my opinion. And I'll never forget his blatant disregard of Itachi's wishes where Konoha was concerned... trying to destroy it, after all Itachi did to save it. Yeah, selfish person alright...
But oh, well. I truly love the way you had Sakura and Shikamaru interact. All felt completely realistic and you probably know how difficult it can be to find a story like that. I even went to your tumblr page in order to read the deleted scenes. You truly got me hooked. ;)
Well, if you do start a sequel I'm certainly going to read it, but enjoy your brilliant accomplishment now. You did it! You finished your story and I think you absolutely deserve to bask in the afterglow of that. )
