Lii-yu.Madara chapter 7 . 8/13/2019
Is there a possibility of continuing this story. I find it very interesting, how you portray Orochimaru- Sama. although I believe he would sound or behave quite similar to how he is as an adult. I am thoroughly enamored with the premise of his relationship with Teuchi-san.

I am not sure if pursuing a relationship with Tsunade- hime would be appropriate after the war however, I would like an exploration of his integration back into Konoha, well as much as allowed during the rebuilding. Also his relationship with Teuchi-san and Uchiha Sasuke during this time.

Thank you for the beautiful story.

wow, just wow!

Although I personally think Orochimaru-Sama would, from a young age speak the way he speaks as an adult your portrayal of both he and Teuchi-san is perfect. Teuchi-san is a treasure

This will be one of those stories I keep coming back to for years. so beautifully written from a point of view few can express, my favourite being the war as seen by a civilian food stand owner. Thank you for this beautiful treasure.

The jump is a bit ridiculous there. Originally it was only going to be for like an hour at 200, then it jumped to 300 for 14 hours. Like... Zefuk? Even worse is that Ichiraku who we've come to believe is a very honest and kind man, doesn't find anything wrong with this. Business man or not, that's a bullshit jump and he know it. Knowing that Orochimaru may be homeless soon if he doesn't give him the deal. You have him at 14 hours a day, thirty days a month, that's 420 hours, 300 Ryo. Notice a problem? I'm entirely sure Ichiraku frowns on what is basically slavery. I also doubt a so called Genius would take something that stupid!

Even if we forget the amount that actually is, by maybe... Making Ryo way more than USD? That jump from 30 hours to 300, for only a 50% increase. Math just isn't working here!

Damn, good story. Always interesting to see a villain humanized without being derailed. Orochimaru, Voldemort, Kel-Thuzad. It doesn't matter really. Besides, flat characters, especially villains, are terribly boring. Who cares about the guy who wants to destroy the world "For the evulz"? Give me a someone who wants revenge for his family, is jealous of his brother, or looks after a small child. Far more interesting

Considering the number of characters in various series that REALLY REALLY care about their hair. Unsurprising.

I like this story. You titled the last chapter truly, it was bittersweet to see how Orochimaru changed over the years in the snippets. Thank you!

This is amazing work. So in character and yet it seems weird to picture Orochimaru like that. It fits, though. Very insightful and I love the perspective of the story.
