I was so confused as to who was who in this till the end. Garg.

I'm so glad i figured out who it was early on. What you did was really clever. How you kept switching from possibility to possibility, with the only the little details in the interactions between our main character and specific characters, was brilliant. Although, I did doubt my choices on several occasions throughout this story. Still, very well done.

Sobs. Too beautiful for words. I love how intense their friendship is...and how Sasuke truly feels and how Sakura has come to understand what lingers between him and and his best friend. I love the fact that this story could be exploring the underpinnings of a more romantic type of love, but if it is really only just about a platonic relationship, I'd find this sweet and mellow and natural-a very special, protective, genuine bond between two people who were always meant to end up friends. I can actually visualize Sasuke acting the way he does here and what I admire most about him is the vulnerability in his heart and yet the firmness with which he said: "And when he wakes up, I'll be here. I'll be the first thing he sees. So he knows he's not alone." It's because of Naruto that Sasuke is able to summon such strength. It's because of him that Sasuke is able to admit what he needs and voice how he feels. Sasuke understands Naruto's fears because he harbors the same; he knows how hard it is to be alone, to be isolated and to be overcome with sadness. But that is not why he fights to stay by Naruto's side. He does because he cares. And Naruto's smile makes the world appear a little more kinder than it is. ;)

I love it. This is really good. You can feel Sasuke's desperation and feelings that it makes you cry. Though at first I was focusing on who was narrating so I don't really feel the emotions. Have to re-read it when in the end its Sasuke's the one who was narrating. Though at first I was imagining Sasuke's the one narrating, in the middle of the story it change to Naruto b'cos of the words "dragging his ass back to Konoha" then apparently its Sasuke.
A very emotional fic. Good Job! You've manage to make me cry. If only you could make a sequel of what happen after Naruto woke up...

I loved it. The end.

I was constantly switching between who I thought was narrating. At first it was naruto, then when he scowled at kakashi i knew it was Sasuke but I slowly switched back to naruto until the end. When i discovered it was defiantly Sasuke i had to go back and re-read to get the full effect which was so deep. Seeing Sasuke actually show some emotion over Naruto moved me, not to tears though because i was concentrating on trying to figure out who was narrating more then letting the emotional impact hit me. Great work though. :)

I.. am crying so hard right now. I think this is one of the greatest Naruto x Sasuke story out there. The depth of their bond, not yet lovers but so much more than friends and Sasuke's surprising devotion to Naruto is heartbreaking. I absolutely love how you characterized Sakura. And when Sasuke was reduced to killing his pride and saying, "please", I cried all over again. I'll be re-reading this many more times in the future. Thank you for this!

I thought it was Sasuke throughout the whole story, then near the end I thought it was Naruto...turned out to be Sasuke.

Wow. I thought I'd read this before, but apparently I hadn't. O.O This was super awesome, and super LONG! Thanks for that! ;)

This story was very uplifting. I adored the way you wrote it from Sasukes perspective and wrote in the other characters. You're an amazing author.
| Seraphinia chapter 1 . 8/5/2010
Wow, you really did a great job. You captured his desperation to be with Naruto and the conflict that Sakura had with her emotions because of his behavior. I personally think that Tsunade would be a bit more understanding, but well, that's not important.
This story sucks you in and even though your heart gets heavier with every line you can't stop reading until you're at the end.
It was great.
