I like Sai too, and he's so under appreciated and under represented (even by Kishimoto himself). This was such a beautiful oneshot, bittersweet and filled with lines that are full of so much meaning.
One of the best oneshots for Sai, or any character for that matter, that I've seen.

I sometimes wish FF had a 'like' button similar to face book, because sometimes it's hard to pin point what it is that makes a read so satisfying.
*Hits the imaginary 'like' button*

As usual, poignant, to the point, and perceptive. Sai really grows on people, does he not? You do a fantastic job getting into his brain. Kudos!

Soo...perfect. So Sai. Love it dearly.

This is lovely, I love Sai - It's very inspiring. I love the dynamics you presented between the team :)

I like Sai too. The most minor of minor typos (is to are), but who really cares. Very elegant. I pretty much binged on your stories today. Heheh. Subtle and a tad bittersweet. Sai's character is certainly someone underrated and there is so much to him. I enjoyed the way it was written and the psychoanalysis. You took a sweet concept and wove into something akin to quivering on the edge of a cliff. Thanks for the story.

Wow…being in Sai's head is weird…but not as weird as being in Sasuke's head!

Oh I love Sai. Everything he says makes me roll over laughing, even when it's not supposed to be funny. I just find him incredibly amusing. Awesome job on this. I thought it was a good idea of what he could be thinking.

So, I think this is something like the sixth review I've left you in the last few hours? I imagine your inbox, if you bother with alerts is getting full, so I'll cut straight to the part where I tell you how much I love that you did a Sai-centric piece that encompasses how socially inept he can be, while still throwing in how much he loves his teammates, even if he doesn't know that's what's going on.
I also really love that you used teaching them how to draw as the central thing, and the details like ink in Naruto's hair, and hoping other people doodle stick figures in the margins of Sakura and Naruto's imagined future make for really, really nice imagery.

I love your Sai!
| darlingfox chapter 1 . 9/6/2009
This really is a beautiful portrayal of Sai.

Your explanation of the 4 person team -its efficiency due to its number, really set my mind reeling and went damn, that makes a lot of sense. Situation dependent of course, but it has me convinced for this particular shinobi context.
