Yays! i read this fic a long time ago but forgot to add it to my favs.
so on to the fav list it goes!

Wow, that was an excellent fic! I really enjoyed it. What the five did was risky, but I was glad to see that they were able to stick together and carry out on what they believed, even when the adults weren't brave enough to try. Life is no doubt going to be hard for the rest of their lives, but they have each other. I have to admit that the threesome did surprise me, but it wasn't in a bad way. Poor Hinata... it's a miracle that she's still sane.
Thanks for sharing!

You know, I started reading this story not sure what I was going to get. The first few chapters intrigued me and so I kept going. I'm so glad that I did. I'm about halfway through it now, and I can't remember now why I hesitated at the beginning.
I think this is the first story I've read (I'm fairly new to the Naruto fanfiction fandom) that focuses more on Sasuke than on Naruto. I like it, especially because you have been very meticulous about showing just how much Sasuke's stay with Orochimaru has changed him. I like the little hints, like him pulling his katana out of the guy sideways instead of just back out, or the snakes that keep popping up, that show just how different he is. His struggle with the mangekyou worry me, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see what happens.
Oh, I also thought that Naruto's own problems with the fox demon's chakra were very unique and I loved how everyone came together to solve it.

Ssauke's an idiot here. A selfish scared idiot... I like the Naruto personality though!
| Plug chapter 22 . 6/25/2006
I put off reviewing this story for a few days because I wanted to give it time to settle in my thoughts, until I had something of an articulate picture to draw my conclusions from. Even now I'm still not really sure exactly how I want to go about this, but I figure it's kind of silly to make such an epic drama out of writing a review for a piece of fanfiction I might as well forge ahead, damn the torpedoes.
I don't want to say "This is the greatest fic I've ever read!" even though part of me is really pushing me to do just that. The only reason is because my own tastes in literature oscillate at frequent intervals so I don't know if I could back that up a few months down the line as I read more and more. So I'll just try being honest without labeling your story: I enjoyed this on an extremely personal level. You managed to scribe a breathtakingly visceral story here, one so wrought with complex emotions and personal thoughts that I'm having a very difficult time thinking of a comparison.
I very much enjoyed the ambiguity of this story. I liked how the characters would often talk in fractal, wandering sentences as if they weren't certain where to begin or where to end. I liked how the conclusion of the story felt both so beautiful and affectionate but so horribly empty and sad at the same time. I liked how well you handled Naruto's "final scene" that even knowing what was going to happen walking into that scene you still managed to cause a tremendous ache in the readers anyways. I liked how you handled Team Seven's relationships with people outside of their cell; an attempt to diversify, to branch out, but always being muffled and dulled because the other people weren't Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura. If that makes any sense.
And most of all, without a doubt, I found it profound the enormous affection you created between those three. You did it with such restraint, understatement and subtlety. You wrote these characters *so well*. The final chapters of this story had an intensely profound affect on me that has stayed with me for days. It hasn't been years since a fanfic has done that. Thank you so very much for sharing this story with all of us.

I'm really bad at leaving reviews - far too lazy to do it - but I felt obligated after spending a couple of hours reading this story. It made me ache; my chest was tight, I had trouble swallowing and it really hurt to read this. The plot, in and of itself, was really nothing special but the way the characters worked within it, the changes they'd gone through and how broken they all were, made for a deeply affecting reading experience. I'd really like to read the story that inspired this.
| Berserk chapter 10 . 6/1/2006
I'm sorry but there's something very wrong with the dialog. Maybe there's just too much of it and not enough of everything else, I can't really place it, but it makes the story annoying to read that I gave up on it.
| darkangel chapter 22 . 5/27/2006
now that chapter just confused me...so who was the kid with sakura?
sasuke's and hinata's kid? i dunno...so confusing...
how're you gonna answer this question...
anyway, good story, i don't usually read just naruto stories, usually crossovers, but it was good

this is a wonderful wonderful story and you do have some real talent. Very touching and evovles from the beginning without any effort. Bravo
| curlyalien chapter 22 . 5/16/2006
it took me a couple of days to finish reading, but i would sacrifice more days with pleasure. it is ended though and the last paragraph being thoughtful yet simple was a really well ending. you developed the characters very well too and the dialogs were brilliant and very realistic. the all story was so real and a lot of stuff on lacks it (don’t think i don’t include me o the lot). i like how you wrote all the emotions and made all the fanfic a truly sad and dramatic tragedy without all the damned soupishness and cry me a river stuff. and i’m glad that you made me take the dictionary again ‘cos i wasn’t using it for a long time while reading fanfics. blah blah . . . i just wanted to write something more than cool story (no my vocabulary allows to write more than that!)
whatever the hell just don’t waist your talent

Gah! I mean, gah! I love the buildup, the choices they make, the meaning of friendship and love and trust, even the angst and broken hope and, and, everything! You left me breathless when they decided to rescue Naruto. Kudos to you! I think this story is my favorite Naruto fic!
| False-Image chapter 22 . 5/1/2006
Still the best fanfic I've ever read. _ It was depressing though because of what Kakashi had to do and everything, but realistic and very well written. Still love Team seven _
| ShaJen chapter 22 . 4/26/2006
Good chapter. KEEP GOING! This is one of my last-remaining obsessions...so HURRY UP! I need to call my friend half-way across the country and rant and rave about SOMETHING, don't I?
| dreamlifter chapter 22 . 4/14/2006
expertly written story. read it in a week. loved the 3d characterizations and the tragedy. Although i found the story to be too tragic, it was very realistic and well thought out. much respect.
