Such a beautiful love story :)
| Go Go Bear chapter 9 . 12/4/2012
First, I want you to know that I do love this fic: the difference in viewpoint for each situation, the misunderstandings because of that difference, how both characters want to make it work anyway, etc. Loved it, wonderfully heart-tugging, and all that glory.
However, that said... You almost lost me here at the end with "Loosing Kakashi and loosing Sandaime..."
Seriously. Almost. Lost me.
Despite being only a few paragraphs from the last of it, I nearly bashed in my monitor out of extreme frustration. I understand that this was written seven years ago, that your grammar has likely dramatically improved since writing this, and that I'm probably picking at an embarrassing scab, but "loose" instead of "lose" has been in every single effing Naruto fanfic that I have read. I mean, wth? I have never seen an error so widely made across one fandom before! It is getting borderline ridiculous!
*sigh* Well, sorry for the whiny rant. The story itself is still fantastically good and I am delighted that you did decide to expand it beyond the "first little snapshot." Very sweet and sad all bundled into one great fic!

The first two chapters were my favourites. There was such symmetry in their thoughts, it was beautiful. I loved how both of their POVs ended with the same sentence - they completed and complimented each other wonderfully throughout and ended their thoughts in the same place.
I have to admit though that I, too, would have preferred this story to have ended at chapter eight, sad though that might have been. I haven't read many stories where Kakashi's status as a jounin played such an integral part in the relationship between Iruka and him. Usually it's all, "Don't underestimate the chunin," or "Mr. Jounin is sooo strong." Not many acknowledge the characters as they've been shown to be in the manga. It's new for me to think that their equality at home should in no way be mirrored within the rest of the village. Jounin trumps chunin, sure, we all know that, but somehow most people seem to forget that a jounin automatically has authority over a chunin. Kakashi does have it right, and not many people have written it as you have.
Suffice to say, I greatly enjoyed this story. :)

After searching throughout section I finally found you! The story that portrays Kakashi and Iruka's personalities truly! Its is so them and they are acting how they should Iruka shy and Kakashi sneaky perv. Sorry for rambling on but have read a lot of good ones so was being to think I would only find bad left.

I am SSOO glad you didn't leave it at Chapter 8. I would have reached into yours story, beat the crap outta Kakashi and drag him back to Iruka.
And Iruka! OhMyGwad! I wanted to hug him and never let him ago about half way through the chapter! He's right, for a genius, Kakashi's really dumb sometimes! lol.
ReallyReally great read! Thanks for the story! ]

A wonderful, beautiful story. I loved the raw emotions and evocative imagery. Please keep writing. I know this is an older story, and maybe you have moved on with life, but even if you no longer write for FF, pleases do not let such a talent go to waste. I am going to your profile now to read all other stories you have written. Thank you for such a wonderful experience. I hope you receive this review personally.
