Nice piece. Tsunade is such a rich character, and I like how you tease out her resentment and numbing.

The problem with reading so many fan fictinos of one single brilliant author is that after some time, one doesnt know what to say any more...
I can just say this was yet another awesome oneshot and that I absolutely love the way Tsunade thinks of her team, her teammates and her family and home. Especially her characterizations of Orochimaru, Sarutobi and Jiraiya are most fitting, and I like how she (well, you) mention the Yondaime, Kakashi and a few other characters along the line as well.
The most brilliant phrase surely was
"The day their teacher died, Orochimaru lost two hands.
Tsunade won three: two pairs and a Royal Flush."
But also, the paragraph about Naruto - about how his smile actually is a trademark of the Leafs shinobi, about Jiraiya and Yondaime wearing it and Kakashi faking it was great. And, of course, the end, with Tsunade losing her bet and returning home - because, it the end, thats what Konoha is to her and to all of them.
A really, really nice story - absolutely beautiful.

This piece was absolutely brilliant.
"The day her teacher died, Orochimaru lost two hands.
Tsunade won three; twice two pair and then a royal flush."
For some reason, it took me a while to understand what you were trying to say, and then it CLICKED. I love the cleverness in that, how Orochimaru lost his arms and Tsunade won "hands" in cards. xD great job!

That- was awesome.
It's too late at night to think of anything really legitimate to say, and I'm currently unable to offer any critisism, so... yeah.

A beautiful piece. Brilliant words, it just made me wish I could write like that. Great Job!

I know this story is about Tsunade, but I can't help thinking about how much I love Naruto.
| celinae chapter 1 . 2/10/2006
An interesting and not *exactly* angsty oneshot (I would make the category just "General," but it's your story XD). But still good.
Ohh, I love the hand metaphor.. XD

I think I've told you before how much I worship your writing, but hey, it can never be said too many times. Thank you for the great work, and keep it up, please!
Btw, I was a little confused as to Jiraiya's "three boys." Are these the Yondaime, Kakashi and Naruto?

Wow. This was really good. I love the emotion and imagery; quite vivid. Great job! I'm adding this to my C2, hope you don't mind.

Yet again, you've managed to make me cry. Thanks. :D
