I forgot to add to my previous review. I loved the progression of the story, weaving flashbacks into important emotional reveals. plot was sewn to together seamlessly. and the point you made about Sasuke loving Amoto without expectation. chef's kiss.

wow. my first fanfic after years of not reading. really took me back to my childhood. I'm glad this was the fic I chose to read to bring me back to fanfiction. I think you gave the correct ending based on the setup of the story. and boy is the angst first and foremost the genre.
I think you did an amazing job characterizing everyone, even Hinata. you didn't bash her nor paint her to be flawless. Sasuke is truly cursed. it left me sad but in a good way. you did justice to the story. the epilogue made me nostalgic. I loved all the characters. I will miss those flashbacks of what could have been with Naruto and Sasuke in this universe... thank you for finishing the story despite having started it ten years prior. I binged it all in an evening.

Okay, I almost never review but I’m pissed as a matter of fact I’m furious. My biggest issue with this story apart from the ending and killing Amoto (totally unnecessary) is hinata, she is so manipulative and terrible, naruto should have left her not only because of sasuke but because she’s a terrible person. Hinata is everything that no woman should ever want to be and I also hated how disturbing the ending it was the furthest thing from a happy ending and it felt like everyone was too much of a coward to face their feelings and it felt like they all settled it was such an unfitting end to a story this captivating

Could you write an alternate ending? Where Amoto lives?

Dude f this ending. I'm crying so hard rn. Guess it's time to refresh my soul with some Sasunaru stories with fluff and happy endings. (Even though i didn't like how it ended you did pull it off...so respect. But you don't get more than that from mee) X***(

First, thanks a lot for writing this awesome story. It makes me think, really, and (almost) cry.
Despite all the amazing things of the story and the way you tell it, I feel kind of disappointing with the ending. It's not because of the SE (to me), but I think that the problems are pushed away, not solved.
Well, I know it's the important event of erasing memory that make this story. And of course, it's hard to find someone help people (or lovers) the way Naruto does to Sasuke, but it is just unfair, when Hinata, and Tsunade was trying to save him without letting him know. His life isn't be decided by himself, 'edited life' - as you said. We can all have friends, family beside to help, but only ourselves can deal with our own problems completely.
This reminds me of Itachi's life. He didn't know Sasuke's wishes, and decided Sasuke's life, lead to terrible consequences. We need to face the problem, not throwing them away.
At the end, that freaking forbidden jutsu is used again! Arghh... I feel so sorry for Amoto, because that crazy event must have changed something there, but things just keep going on, Sasuke even forgot it. They have suffered for more than 10 years, and Naruto's son that both Naruto and Sasuke love, died for them. After that, they must become stronger to make better decisions for their lives, protect precious people, bonds; not that situation of Sasuke...
I don't hate, but cannot sympathize Hinata with what she has done. When they were younger, Naruto helped her to stand up and fight to change her fate, to live the way she wants, then why did she erase his memory? And kept him from living his life.
Although Hinata truly loves Naruto so much, as she said that Naruto moved on and chose her over Sasuke, she also can move on if Naruto continue searching for Sasuke. She can find somebody else who loves her entirely, rather than marry Naruto, knowing he doesn't love her at all. Maybe, just maybe, she could erase his memory to save him at that time, but not trying to make it eternally, and living with a lie for 10 years.
The way Hinata admires, then loves Naruto, isn't the same bond as the two lonely boys'. They lost everything, except each other.
Anyway, I know you haven't updated any chapters for years, but if you've ever read this, please forgive my writing mistakes, and know that you did a great great job!

I was sad when I read you hadn't finished writing the fic and this last piece available was just some kind of consolation prize but no... no no no no no, this is pure bs x_x like, huh?
There should at least be a "Tragedy" tag somewhere, in which case I wouldn't have bothered with reading x_x
Nobody deserved this x_x

I don’t know if a reviewed this before but gah why is the second time reading this more hurtful? I remembered the plot but I didn’t know how it ended so I stayed up for till 4 a.m waiting for the ending and then it wrecked me. This story is just filled with so much pain and it reminds me of of the new Naruto series Boruto. I wanted so much more for sasuke and I wanted to cure some of his pain. It’s rare to read a story without a happy ending and while I’m trying to figure out a different ending to make it okay in my mind I just can’t... anything I think about will leave broken hearts. This story is so good though, I’m glad you gave a “sort of” ending. Let’s viewers who come later actually see what you were thinking.

It's sad. Despite those happy-like epilog, it's indeed sad.
