Heh. Nice. Another good work with nothing wasted. I enjoyed it heartily. Thanks.

I love it! It's so cute. This is why ShikaTema SHALL happen! To parody the irony of his desired 'normal life' and to draw a parallel to his scary mother.

The comparisons to what he wanted and what he got were sweet. The description of his daughter was cute as could be. (She wants to marry her Grandad? Daw.) And last line was adorable.

*snickers* close... and they say shikamaru's a genious. That was awesome. It was like a toal reflection on what could happen if it did happen. Deffinatly fanfiction; but still suriprisingly sincere.

"but on his wedding night he'd admitted to himself that the sinuously lascivious way his princess of Sunakagure and ambassador to Konohagakure in one had seduced him away from any vestige of self-control was anything but average."

I am 100% drunk on your prose. Writing must be a delicious procedure. Who needs half-assed criticism? Can't I just say you're-great-you're-great-you're-great?

Loved it! I had a nice chuckle from it and you really captured Shikamaru's twisted sense of humor and logic.

Yes! I'm practically laughing with squeeness right now.

I love the way it is written. It's just so Shikamaru. Great job.

The last line is especially lovely.
ionizable chapter 1 . 9/25/2006
gah you should honestly write more shikatem. heck, if i could write half as well as you, i'd be writing instead of reading. Dx

bah, your stories are really good, if a little short. but that's okay, because the content is what matters, not the drabbly-ness.

keep writing~!

I like how shika is in character all the way through. That's what makes a good story.
NutBuster chapter 1 . 8/22/2006
Haha, this was a nice one-shot. Though it was sad that Kankouru's wife had died. Heh.

I really liked the way it ended. But it was interesting that you didn't put 'how troublesome' here. It's the first fanfiction I've read that didn't have it. xD But it works, so it's okay.

My favorite line here is " Shikamaru might still have a shot at dying before his spouse, though. There's not much either of them might do about that, although he suspects that Temari will die right when he does just to spite him. " Very in character.

Keep up the great work.
