Naruto is like an ex boyfriend of mine. He was good at the big gestures and went through periods where he was super-romantic and wanted to be with me and do things for me, but then for the rest of the time (which was most of the time), I was secondary in his life. That's just like this Naruto. You called him a whirlwind at sweeping people off their feet, and that's exactly what he's doing to Sasuke. He's decided he wants Sasuke (for now) and is aggressively going after him. Once he makes some headway with Sasuke, he'll pull back and run away again. It's what he's been doing for the ENTIRE fic and is also very consistent with this kind of personality type.
The Naruto in this fic is incredibly self-centered and has very little empathy for anyone else. Realistically speaking, he'll never have a successful relationship with anyone, no matter how much he claims to love them, because of his narcissism. If Naruto truly loved Sasuke, he would have forgiven him for falling for Arashi and been happy that Sasuke was happy. After all, what did he want? For Sasuke to stay alone and miserable for the rest of his life just so Naruto could feel the satisfaction of knowing he had both Hinata and Sasuke's love? And if the Naruto in this fic was truly capable of love and empathy, he'd recognize how much he's hurt Sasuke instead of rushing headlong into seducing him. He definitely wouldn't be trying to breakup Sasuke's relationship with Gaara. But this Naruto has never once put another person's needs ahead of his own and never would.
The fic may be trying to push messages like "true love conquers all," or "love can change a person," but I know from personal experience and common sense that it's just not possible. Naruto is a lost cause.

I really enjoyed this story. I read it on first and decided to to Google it to see if there were any updated chapters. Luckily I found two and I am hoping the author continues this story because I look forward to reading the ending. Please update.

F*ck Naruto. Let Sasuke move on with Gaara. That sswipe Naruto can go find somebody else. Naruto threw Sasuke away first on purpose. He doesn't get to throw a hissy fit just because someone else came along to pick up the pieces. And now he's repeating the same mistakes all over again with Sai. Oh, but he's trying to have his cake and eat it too continuing to date Sai while trying to seduce Sasuke. Naruto and Sasuke's relationship is 100% based in the past and based on nostalgia. Sasuke kissed Naruto after looking at a few photo albums and it was the best they've gotten along so far. If they hadn't been so knee-deep in memories, Sasuke might not have given in so easily. But good memories 10 years ago don't make for a good relationship today. At one point in time, every relationship was happy before it soured and this NaruSasu relationship has soured like bad milk. Team Gaara FTW.

Update asap pleasee?

Naruto Sasuke are my OTP for this series, which is why I started reading the fic, but I gotta say, the more I read of this story, the less I want to see them together in the end. Minato (Arashi) was a 1,000 x better than his son, and I really ship him and Sasuke in this fic. It makes me sad to see Sasuke move on from someone wonderful like him to someone worthless like Naruto. In 9 chapters, I haven't once found Naruto to be likeable OR sympathetic. I don't want him to finally get Sasuke when he hasn't done a single thing to deserve a happy ending.
I'm not saying Naruto is evil slime. He's not, but he's a terrible friend to Sasuke and was a terrible son to Minato. From the death of his father, Naruto experienced what it's like for someone you love to die when there are still unresolved issues between you, and even with that lesson in mind, what does Naruto do? He continues to treat Sasuke horribly and run away from him. What it comes down to is that Minato was there for Sasuke, but Naruto never was. Not before Minato died (after Naruto's marriage), and not since Minato died either.
I think it's totally fine, and totally understandable that Naruto would choose to ignore his feelings for Sasuke when they were young. Not everyone would want to go for the unknown and have a romantic relationship with their best friend. It's also understandable that he got upset about Sasuke x Minato. But the problem is, Naruto cut them both dead. He didn't spend a few months wallowing in anger before trying to come to terms with it. He turned his back on the both of them, and didn't want his wife and son spending time with them when Minato was the boy's own grandfather! He robbed his son of a relationship with his grandfather because of his own selfishness, and he treated Hinata badly on top of it. Plus, with all the running away Naruto has been doing, he doesn't seem like he's being a good father to his son. (With all those business trips he's taking, just when is going to see his kid?)
And then there's the shameful way he's treated Sasuke throughout this whole fic. As far as Naruto is concerned, everything has been all about *his* feelings. He runs away when he wants to, comes back when he's forced to, and has never stopped to consider how his actions have affected Sasuke. Not when he walked away from their friendship. Not when he called Sasuke a whore after Sasuke comforted him after his ordeal at the bank. And not when he decided to spend months running away from Sasuke once again. (He's gone on at least two long-term business trips that we know of, one for 3 months, which Kakashi was supposedly OK with, and now this latest one for four months.) That's at least 7 months of running away. And it bothers me knowing that without Minato's direct intervention (through the terms of his will), Naruto probably never would have reconciled with Sasuke. (And where's the guilt for how he treated his father, and the gratitude that his father would try and do something like this for him?)
And now that Naruto has been forced to come home once again, what does he do? He goes and finds himself a boy toy to ease his own unhappiness. He doesn't know Sai is working for Orochimaru, but that doesn't really matter since from his perspective, he's using Sai. Naruto is as bad as Kakashi and the other workers thought Sasuke was at the beginning of the fic. The difference being of course that Sasuke did end up loving Minato, while Naruto is just straight up using Sai. And now that Naruto has finally decided he wants Sasuke for himself, instead of trying to mend the friendship first and taking it slow, he's jumped into trying to seduce Sasuke, without even a qualm for the fact that Sasuke has a boyfriend, and that that boyfriend is a friend of his. If Naruto changes his mind again, he'll be hurting two of his friends very badly if he ruins Sasuke's relationship with Gaara.
So yeah, Naruto isn't an axe murderer or anything, but for the life of me, I can't see what Sasuke ever saw in him, or why that love never dried up. "Love is blind" is an excuse which only takes you so far. After all of Naruto's shitty behavior, it stretches the limits of credibility that somehow he'd manage to stoke Sasuke's fires yet again. Sure, when they were teenagers, but NOW? After everything he's done?
You might say Naruto showed his true colors in walking away from Sasuke and Minato the way that he did, so really, that should have killed Sasuke's feelings for him. And since the death of his father, you can't say that Naruto has managed to be even a halfway decent friend to Sasuke. They were trying for a while, but the situation got messed up again once Naruto was forced to confront his own feelings of attraction. In fact, as Sasuke pointed out, even old classmates like Shikamaru have treated Sasuke better than Naruto did.
The last straw for me, as far as Naruto was concerned, was when Naruto called Sasuke a whore after Sasuke painfully bottomed for him for the first time, which he only did for Naruto's comfort. (Why oh why didn't he give something like that to Minato instead?) Did Naruto know it was a somewhat painful experience for Sasuke? (He didn't seem to care much about Sasuke's limp the following morning. How about while they were having sex?) While Naruto may not have known that it was Sasuke's first time bottoming, *surely* he knew it was Sasuke's first time being with someone after the death of his lover. He couldn't have been kinder about things? And to imply that Sasuke was a whore not just for him, but had been for his father as well, it's just too much. Once again it was all because Naruto was feeling threatened and scared, with no regard for the collateral damage to anybody else. It's worse that Sasuke is supposed to be someone he's friends with and loves, and worse that Sasuke was treating him kindly by attempting to treat his wound when Naruto snapped.
Anyway, I apologize for the rant. I'll say this: it's the first time I've ever disliked a Naruto so much, which is probably why it caught me so off-guard. Usually, Naruto's part in this type of fic is played by Sasuke, and Sasuke's part is played by Naruto. (Most writers would've cast Sasuke as the one getting married and had Naruto seeking comfort in Itachi's arms.) So I'm grateful that for once, it's Naruto that I don't like instead of always Sasuke.
Well, since I just can't seem to enjoy this Naruto, I think I probably won't continue to read this fic. (I'm also not crazy about Minato and evil Orochimaru having had a past together.) I do wish you luck with the rest of the fic.

I feel stupid. I usually never read an unfinished story. I hate waiting. But I liked one of your old stories so... yeah. I liked the plot of this story so I started reading right away. It wasn't only until the 8th chapter that I realized this wasn't complete and you haven't updated in 3 years. My sad sad life. Please update! It's hard to find stories where Sasuke is the uke and the story actually substantial.

I like this story. The relationship is developed nicely. I hope you'll update even though it looks like you won't.

LOL I'm glad that you're proud that you uploaded that chapter in less than six months but...*cries in a corner* But it's been YEARS since you've updated! How could you! I thought...I thought there was something more...How could you just coldly ignore us after you put so much passion into this?
LMAO Okay, okay, I've gotta stop. My friend is doing all the play-acting to this review and it's cracking me up. But seriously, I really hope you update soon. I can't wait to see what happens! And when are Gaara and Neji going to get together. 'Cuz you KNOW they're perfect for each other, ne?
Loved this chapter. Heck, love this STORY! Completely awesome! The plot is great. My only recommendation would be a beta. There are a lot of spelling errors and misused words. But overall, still a wonderful story.
Well, gotta go to work! Keep up the great work!

I realised that it has been two years since you have updated this story, will you do so anytime soon?
I absolutely love this story! I'm so curious as to what happened between Orochimaru and Arashi
