You're a great writer. Your way with words is truly fantastic. But having read this story through, I'm left with the impression that this is 'an exercise in helplessness', wherein everyone manipulates Neji and everything goes to hell in a handbasket, repeatedly, and then stays there. TBH, I'd have liked seeing Neji become stronger and then tear Kabuto's head off (or at least escape), rather than what feels like a futile struggle against this not-so-gilded cage he's been put in. No offence meant, because this really is a great story, with lots of interesting details and with an interesting portrayal of Neji and his descent into madness. It's just that it feels like 'Tragedy' would have fit with the 'Angst' label better than suspense.

OMG! That was delightfully mindfucky! It was INSANE! Keep this going, PLEASE! Because this is just TOO incredibly fascinating to be simply left alone! Keep it up, I BEG you! PLEASE! I haven't been this captivated in the longest time, so it'll kill me if you quit on this! Keep it up please! GAH! I just simply love you for this story! :D

I really like how you've separated the fighting styles of the Branch and Main House. It's something subtle that those outside the house wouldn't realize, but to those who practice jyuuken, it's a very obvious caste difference. Great idea.
Your description of the effect of the curse seal was excruciating. The amount of poetry in it was largely the most tragic portion of the passage. Somehow I knew that Temari's bird was going to end up cooked, but it was still made an impact at the end.
I like the theme of the chapter titles. Please keep writing!

How do you call the phobia of finding the best fic you would probably ever read of your favorite character and have the fear that it may not be updated?
Please tell me you are updating soon. If not, at least reply my review saying so. Don't leave me in limbo, that would be so cruel.
See you. Best fic ever!

First of all, congratulations on producing a truly amazing, beautiful, mindfuckingly crazy and awesome piece of writing. Though I left the Naruto fandom a few years ago, this is one of the fics that I come back to for a re-read every six months or so. It's just that incredible. The plot, the characterization, the metaphors and the originality that you brought out in this story deserve recognition. So thank you for writing it.
Given that you haven't updated in two years it seems that your inspiration for the story and/or interest in the fandom has vanished. I don't want to accept this but I understand that when the words won't come, the words won't come.
But I'm still longing for a sense of closure to this story. If you have no objections, would you post/link to some kind of timeline or notes you have left on Nightingale? Or provide a rough summary of the next events or how the story wraps up? Of course a continuation of the story would be beyond great, but at this point so much time has passed I'm coming to accept the reality that this story is probably discontinued. So please, please have mercy on us faithful readers and provide us with a bit of closure on a true fandom classic?
Thanks again for posting whatever you have,

Neji is such a pleasantly fucked over character - you think you'll update this ever?
hope you do

Are you going to update this someday?

Temari is going to be pissed! ...and by extension, Gaara...
That grandmother is very realistic. I've known of people like that, what's more, their affections can switch depending on who rebelled more or became more or less /useful/.

Holy hell! You've effectively screwed around with my mind with this fic. There's so much that's disturbing and wrong. The action is intense and adrenaline-pumping, and the ideas are just... holyomgwow.
I'm usually not interested in fics where people defect from Konoha, but this is amazing and I don't regret starting reading this at all.
I EAGERLY AWAIT NEW CHAPTERS.
| Celestial Secrets chapter 16 . 1/28/2011
I love how intense this story is. There is so much mindrape and so many cringeworthy descriptions that describe Neji's situation that we almost want to be sick ourselves. It's be really super awesome if you could continue this, but as that's unlikely, I'm grateful that at least this much is available to read.

interesting but confusing at times.
| FindRevolution chapter 16 . 11/12/2010
This is indeed an amazing story! I love it, even though I'm not quite sure why. I was going to stop reading it, but for some reason I just kept going. It might have been the awesome chapter titles... phobia names are so interesting! Anyway, thank you for decreasing the level of world suck with your lovely literature!

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL STORY EVER!
Oh please oh please update it one day (yes I know it's 2010 now instead of 2009) but I can hope.
Also, this is my favorite story in the world.
