| young kagome chapter 20 . 2/1/2012
I absolutely, undoubtedly LOVED this story! It was beautifully written and you got most of the characters down to the tee all while adding your own lil personality and spice into it. Brilliant. I laughed I cried I got angry I got excited, all in all you did a kick-ass job! Great..no excellent job! Even though I don't necessarily like kakashi and sakura im looking forward to reading the sequel. :)

I absolutely love all of your works. The description is beautiful and the characters are well-written. In addition, the storyline, while sometimes has been done before, is new in many different ways.
I have to ask though - where did you get the number 35 for the amount of bones in the hand?

Oh that story was amazing and im almost reluctant to read Silver Lining because of Im quite favortive of Kakashi... But I just cant not read it!

I can't even tell you how many times I have read this story. I love everything about it! The characters are so well rounded. The plot is fantastic! You are definitely one of the best Naruto fanfic writers on this site. Every time, and I mean every time I get to an emotional/intense part my whole body literally swells with emotion and I try hard to suppress my eyes from watering! I know its a good story when that happens and it only happens to a few other impressive fics. Kudos to you and I'm going to continue with finishing this story. :D

So you're the one who wrote Vespertine, my first fanfic on this! I thank you for that!

Really good story.
| kkstev chapter 19 . 12/13/2011
I know this is pretty old, and I know you already have a lot of reviews, but I just wanted to say that I literally could not stop reading your story from start to finish. It was so well-written and flowed in a way that made sense, and had an amazing plot.. Well, I just cannot wait to read the sequel!
| jenniferisvip chapter 19 . 11/27/2011
Oh my goodness. This story was just beautiful. It made me laugh, cry/tear-up, and everything else in between. I think the saddest part for me was when she had to say goodbye to all four of them the night before and then when Deidara and Kisame had to leave. Oh, and the smut scenes were awesome as well (; Time to go read Silver Lining now!
| Mandarins chapter 20 . 11/20/2011
I love your story. Seriously, I read it all day and started Zero of my homework. xD
I've never cried so hard for a story before, but Itachi's death broke my heart onto so
so many pieces.
| Secret world chapter 20 . 11/8/2011
i realy loved the story. a lot of people make the sakura and itachi parring all about sasuke or have them fall in love right away.
i love how you didn't do any of that. it was a good read and i will be looking at the next one. i half expected her to be prego in the end but i kinda like that she is not.
I love the kakashi sakura idea too. i dont usualy read them but i guess ill make an exeption.
you will be hearing from me soon.
| I'm in Love with ItaSaku chapter 18 . 11/1/2011
It's a good story! Really amazing. But I can't help but tear up when Itachi died. But still, it is still a beautiful ending.
| Ioga chapter 20 . 10/19/2011
It is over! I have had my nose glued to this fic for so many days, and now there is no more. Except for the sequel! \o/
Towards the end I was starting to get a bit distracted with the cutesy wedding bits and socializing and all, but when Sakura walked over to Kakashi and the initial cute awkwardness hit in, it just made my heart melt into a little puddle on the floor. I need to remember this Kakashi, it was an interesting new angle for me.
The way the Akatsuki vs. everyone else setting got unravelled was nice, I was kind of wondering how it could ever end up to form an equilibrium that you could end a story with. And it just worked out. X-)
The Itachi drama got somewhat less dramatic after the drunken meeting in the hallway (mwahahahhaa); the lemon was smooth as usual, but after seeing a few from you I was kind of feeling the moves were somewhat "standard perfect" for their first round - might have expected that Itachi would have some more roughness around the edges if he wasn't generally interested in womanizing and all that. ;) But hey, some of it was probably Sakura's being impressed too...
I'm going to have to read Silver Lining too, but I really have to break off for a little bit to return some reviews and stuff before I vanish for days again. :D
Thanks for this!
| Ioga chapter 12 . 10/15/2011
Looks like the story is getting towards the lemony bits. I've liked the mind games, but sometimes it's taken a bit of stretching of suspenders to keep that disbelief in check about Sakura's arguments on why to stay put and be a good girl - like not being able to make it through Stone Country _alive_ by herself. But when considered as her subjective rationalizations rather than information from the all-knowing narrator, it can be written off as her own cognitive bias! ;)
Still eagerly reading, thanks for this!

I have two word for you: dee licious.
The keep-alive premise you have set up for SakuraAkatsuki is maybe the most credible I've seen so far, and I've been seeking out this sort of stories every now and then ever since elle6778's Contentious Heart sold the ItaSaku pairing to me. It actually kept me awake last night, pondering how a keep-alive premise could be ported to Tenten. (Sans bait; I could mostly come up with an elaborate storage scroll of hers holding something the Akatsuki wants back in one piece. I'm not sure if I can spin a story from just that yet though. But if I do it's because of the inspiration from this fic.)
The KakaSaku fluff was cute, and awwww, one-sided the unusual way. :)
Then there was battle. It was arrr nom nom. I like the strong Sakura you've built up here. I'm occasionally a bit confused with mild departs from canon that I'm not sure are actual departs (like whether Tobi would be willing to pretend to be weak up to almost dying, when he can flow through people's fists), but it's a speck of dust in the honey sea of breaking every bone in Deidara's hand, or Itachi coming to finish the unkill.
In chapter 3, you describe "another pair of stirruped boots" (Itachi's) coming to Sakura. I couldn't figure out what it means for boots to have stirrups - they're the thing in saddle to put your foot through, no? I tried to ask people if it means some form of spurs, but I'm not sure why Itachi would have spurs in his boots either. (Itachi on horseback. HAHAHAHAHA- I mean oooh totally cool. *glances around nervously* ;))
And the interactions, mmmmm.
In chapter 5, Sakura leans on the tabletop / island to eat, but once Kisame shows up she's sitting on it? "She hopped down from the counter".
And just when things are getting comfy, BAM Itachi goes mental. Holy adrenaline rush, Batman!
I'm now working my way through ch 6. This story will be over all too soon! Why can't I summon this kind of devouring speed on "educative" books...
Thanks for this!

Just so you know, I've read nearly all of your Naruto fics and I LOVE THEM. You are an awesome writer and I wouldn't be surprised if you're a bestselling author in real life. Wonderful descriptions, perfectly romantic scenes and great phrasing.
