I just died from "touching conclusion" over load...fabulous once more.

It would have been infinitely more interesting if Kisame had came home earlier. Not to interrupt earlier but to overhear some of it. xD

[It was what she needed to hear, and a smile crept over her features. "So it's real," she said softly, gazing hopefully into his pale blue eyes.
He made a small huff of exasperated laughter. "Don't be stupid," he pressed his lips to her brow as his arms wrapped around her shoulders, pulling her in, "Of course it is."]
Yay, I love that!
Hmm, nice fight. I'm glad you took it there and your reasons are great! Yotsuba IS that type of guy to underhandedly try to kill them. Ugh. What an idiot. But then... those assassins did almost succeed! Seriously though, I knew it wasn't over. How could they fall prey to one of the classic blunders? Never assume they're dead and let them sneak up on you! DUHH. *frustrated puff* xD

MUWAHAHA. Yeah, it was awesome when she punched him. I'm SO glad she did. Deidara really wouldn't have been satisfied otherwise and it was awesome and a fitting punishment for that guy.
Wow that is NOT where I saw things going. Haha. But hey, it was interesting. And I know you used it to make her realize that she loves him. And I kept imagining Deidara overhearing that convo. They would've noticed HIM around but I wonder if they'd notice a clay rat. *strokes chin* Although I'm not sure he has any REASON to follow her like that...

DANG IT. I have to find me an artist. I want someone who looks at the world in such an interesting, beautiful way. I love how this particular artist feels about flaws and makes her feel beautiful. :) He has to love her. Sakura MIGHT be missing the forest after all.

Oh god he's making me nervous! He's having all these doubts NOW? Do you know what it would DO to her if he freaks now? He told her she wasn't alone. He absolutely cannot leave her now. *frets* It's different if it just doesn't work out. But this... eek. He needs to be happy too. X_X
*slowly relaxes* Ok, I'm glad Sakura realizes this as well and isn't taking his state of mind for granted.
Hmm, bathroom scene was fun!
HOLY CRAP. Deidara IS scary when he's like that. But I'm glad Sakura is able to appreciate it. *I* don't, not REALLY. I have an inherent fear of fanatics I think. He needs Sakura not to be afraid though, so again, I'm glad she's not.
And I'm glad what he was worried about didn't cause his behavior to change. I'm glad he's opening up to her too, accepting these feelings. And you know if he's scared, how scared should Itachi have been? xD *grins ferally* But then, he was really CURIOUS about those feelings. So I guess that made the difference...

*smiles* You know... Back in Perception, in that clearing, when she made Deidara back down from that fight. I wondered why you had to do it that way. In what way was that necessary to the story? For some reason, I had wished she hadn't done it. But now... considering this story... now, that has so much significance. It wouldn't be quite the same without that hug she'd shared with him the night before AND that scene in the clearing.
Hmm. I've questioned your choices before. (obviously *points up*) so I'm trying to hold back from criticizing the stuff he found in her backpack. That photo album is just too convienent! But I guess... maybe it's not so odd that she would make it in the first place and NORMALLY it would be weird for her to have it with her, so easy for him to find, but she's living out of that backpack. She doesn't have a home to leave it in. Still, all he needed to see was that picture of her with Kakashi drawn by Sai. That would've been enough. STill though, him going through that photo album let us READERS see some parts of the storyline that we missed. So... ok. I accept this.
[With Sakura, he would create masterpieces.]
That paragraph was amazing. It says so much about his character. I love how he thinks. That paragraph was explicit, but it was so beautiful.
T_T Sakura made me cry at the end. But I'm so glad that she did cry, because you made a point of saying earlier that she HADN'T cried and that stuff has to come out. That is a huge part of grieving. I'm so glad she was able to let go.

["Cliches are cliches because they HAPPEN and are proven effective."]
That is an awesome quote.
[He had a passing thought that if she ever decided to wear that getup with those knee-high boots of hers he couldn't be held accountable for what happened.]
HAHAHA. Yeah, I loved that line about the boots the first time, and this time it's even better. You're really good at using that writing techinique-mentioning something and bringing it up again to give it more meaning.
[He grinned up at her with a gleam in his eyes. "You cut your hair off in battle with a kunai? That's so hot."
She gave him an odd look. "I was twelve."
"It's the concept, yeah," he said with a small shrug.]
Haha. Yes. It is hot. It WAS hot even back then. *shrug*
[She came out a minute later wearing a short black skirt, dark purple blouse and – aw, hell – her knee high boots.]
HAHAHA. Those BOOTS. Those dang boots! Oh Deidara, you poor soul.
Wow, Sakura. You are being utterly pathetic. But so very human.
HOTT. *fans self* HOTT. Even... you know... actualy hotter for me than the Itachi scenes. There's real FEELINGS here that Sakura and Itachi didn't share. I feel like this relationship really is the one that was meant to be. Well, they were both meant to BE-as Sakura said in perception. But this is the one that's meant to LAST. I love it. It's so romantic. *swoons*
Anyway. Danng. Sakura making out with his hand. That was so awkward but so... yeah. Hot. Those kisses that followed. *swooning all over again*
You know, in Perception Sakura was drunk the first time she kissed Itachi but she was able to tell him to stop. She said, "Not like this." But she wasn't THIS drunk and now she's a different person AND starved for this kind of action. *cough* so it's understandable. But interesting to make the parallel.
And ohh I LOVED the last paragraph. I loved it SO SO much. I love cuddling. Cuddling is just so NICE. I liked the scene at the beach as well. Sakura shouldn't have turned him away and gotten into that fight with him and acted so pathetic, especially since she just made it painfully obvious how much she actually WANTS to be with him.
Ah, that kiss! That whole scene! *freaks out* It was SO GOOD.

[So it was odd but nice to see him in such a natural and relaxed state in the dark tank and pants he'd slept in, his long hair loose around his shoulders and slightly mussed. A few strands still hung over his eye, but most were carelessly tucked behind his ear. She liked the look, it was more personal, and it somehow made her feel closer to him.]
*swoons a little bit*
Haha. I KNEW it was going to happen, but it was still hilarious when the clones started flirting.
I really loved the end! I loved that interaction. They were actually very mature about it. I thought it might lead to a kiss when he told her to turn around, but I'm glad it didn't. I enjoyed it more that way.
[It was no good and it would only cause problems, but she couldn't help it; being around him made her want to let go of everything she was holding on to and just feel positive about her life and her future again. She couldn't do that, and she felt guilty and torn up just thinking about it. ]
WHY can't she? Of course she can. She NEEDS to. No one who loves her would want her to keep suffering. She's just SCARED. If she can overcome her fear enough to date frickin UCHIHA ITACHI, she can open her heart to Deidara as well. (

Hahaha. Yeah, that was awesome. How he blew up the building and she beat up those guys. I'm glad they got to laugh over it all.
I really enjoyed their flight on the bird. I love that she smiled for real and he noticed since you made a point of him noticing her fake smiles before.
And hey, they did a nice job as newly weds! The simple act of standing next to each other, half hugging in the lobby while he signed into the room. That was nice.
I also liked when they entered the room and the escort said something so superficial that annoyed them both. That was such a real, human interaction there. At least to me.
And boy... Deidara is sexy and at least she didn't start picturing him in the shower or anything. xD

I liked this. I'm glad they met again. I'm glad you decided to write this /type/ of continuation-something unexpected that WORKS.
| WritingRin chapter 1 . 11/20/2010
I can stomach the angst but I'm glad it's not going to last. I love that this story is about redemption and recovery. That assures me that it is worth reading. :) Idk how I feel about Deidara having to save her, but he's not really doing that, I guess. She /mostly/ saved herself.
| brian chapter 4 . 11/9/2010
this is great! read this other story WITH DAWN COMES THE AKATSUKI its a good one too
| yukihime184 chapter 1 . 10/20/2010
I admit I wasn't really a fan of DeiSaku at first and one of the few times that I really find this pairing enjoyable is in your fics XP Kishi-sensei didn't really go into Deidara's character in the manga but if I had my say, I'd like his personality to be exactly how you made him. A misunderstood, slightly insane, yet really wonderful person deep down. I thought this was a really good sequel to Perception and I think that Sakura was really lucky to have experienced so many different kinds of love with so many people and that she got her happy ending the end. This entire story was so full of hope and promise that even though it everything seems lost and there's nothing or no one left in the world to care for you or make you smile, every cloud always has its silver lining :D
