Whoa, what was number five about?

Your stories always seem to have this really sad overtone to it.
In a good-heart-wrenching-way though. I really like it.
(and is it just me or are you implying something on the last one?)

a bit strange…but good…

Nice speculations. (Itachi is the better brother FTW though, which pains me to admit... le sigh...)
| ChristinaAngel chapter 1 . 7/10/2008
Clever! Especially the last one (again) and the poking forehead thing.
| Beboots chapter 1 . 2/3/2008
Definitely for teh win. :3 I thought that this was brilliant - that Itachi developed the forehead-poke thing from Shisui, his little spar with Kakashi, wondering if he failed the test when he didn't kill Sasuke, a believable Kisame-Itachi interaction, and that lovely bit at the end... :D Wonderful! You did an awesome job. Rock on! :D

Such a poignant story in so little words-you nailed Itachi's fights in ways people struggle with or avoid all together.

This is such an interesting perspective on Itachi. Loved it!
| Kaira-chan15 chapter 1 . 6/3/2007
This was definately different. Very interesting, good job! I liked the last one, especially.

Oh, I like this one. I never chanced upon such a simple, short, yet wholesome character study that details the intricate, finer elements of one Uchiha Itachi before. In few words, you've managed to convey the different, various sides of the prodigious Uchiha, along with his interactions with different characters in the series. I exceptionally liked how you incorporated the short scene of Kakashi and Itachi's interaction. Interestingly, those two sentences were more than than enough in causing me to be intrigued..And all this time, the idea of Itachi having been friends (um..ahah) with Hatake hasn't occured to me until now. And come to think of it, it IS possible in a funny sort of way. I liked Shisui's gesture towards Itachi, too. XD
The part with his little brother Sasuke was exceptionally poignant..and nearly enough to tear me up at that point.
going onto my favorites, regardless of the short length of this fic. it's what makes this whole read commendable and enjoyable anyway. complex, subtle and beautifully written. (:

I'm no Itachi fangirl, but I almost feel sorry for him...

Wow, very nice. Another short, 20 Truths type thing, which I am starting to love of yours. And Itachi losing is a very original idea, which I like. I espcially like the one with Kakashi. Well, keep up the amazing work!
