|Reviews for Novocain for the Ninja Soul|
| locket-girl chapter 7 . 9/3/2012
Addictive, although confusing at first because you didn't write in chronological order. However, after I've read the entire story, everything made sense, every puzzle-piece fell into place. I like your Sakura very much because she is both: strong and vulnerable. I've noticed that most of your female protagonists are never overbearingly strong (like Mary Sues) but not helplessly weak (like victims) neither. They are rather...hm well-balanced, having hit the middle ground.
The vehement arguments between Sasuke and Sakura was so realistic, I thought it was autobiographic at first. I could really picture it happening in real life.
Sigh...the days are growing colder and the sun is saying goodbye quicker. I hate the up-coming autumn season. -.-"
Anyway, will you ever update this story? I think it would be a waste not to and I want to know what is going to happen to poor Neiji.

Hi there! So I know this story is a bit old, but I just stumbled across it and couldn't stop reading it! I actually hadn't realized it was unfinished, otherwise I wouldn't have tortured myself with the neverending cliffhanger, but honestly you're a great writer. Like I said I know its been a long time, but I know I, as I'm sure others would as well, definitely appreciate seeing you continue to write! Hope to hear from you soon!

I agree. I love this nejixsaku fic and have been waiting for an update. The suspense is killing me. Any idea when there will be an update?

Okay, so, I applaud you for turning the story on its head for me. I definitely didn't see that death coming.
Sakura has either been kidding herself or just wants an excuse to be violent and raging. I'm going to go with the former. Fukao totally got justice. Go Sakura! And Naruto and Hinata!
You do a fantastic job making ninja ninja. They do what they have to do without flinching and without criticizing each other too much.
I know it's chapters and chapters away, but I'm waiting on Sakura to white-horse-knight Neji and sweep that damsel off of his feet!
| Girl-chama chapter 6 . 8/6/2010
Touch and go, touch and go. I'm waiting for the catalyst between them, even if it is mostly memories.
May I mention again that your setup is fantastic? The webs you've woven between all of the characters is really good, and unconventional as well. You do a good job of fleshing out references made earlier.
I am mostly curious now to see if the new training field is going to be used for something more than background. Will it play a larger role in the overall story or is it going to simply be a prop that is used here and there?
| Girl-chama chapter 5 . 8/6/2010
Wwwwaaaah, it's getting more and more intense. All of this agony for Neji and still only memories as far as interaction goes.
I do wonder about the place he ended up. Castor (and props for a non-Asian name) seems way worse than Fukao at this point. I wonder about him a great deal, given his ability to originally see through the mission, but also where has he brought our Hyuuga scion?
Reading on. I know this is going to kill me when I get to the end of what you've written so far.
| Girl-chama chapter 4 . 8/6/2010
Okay so Ino will live. I know. I believe it. She did such a good job, and Kiba as well. And of course Neji too. It sucks that they still lost the mission.
Now it's Sakura to the rescue!
On to Chapter 4!
| Girl-chama chapter 3 . 8/6/2010
Hmm, I'm ready for the interaction between them. At least Sakura's showing some remorse, I suppose. Damn Neji and his pride! Though honestly he took a worse hit here than the one to his ribs, even if he *was* expecting it. *sigh*
| Girl-chama chapter 2 . 8/6/2010
Hmmm! I like it thus far. This is an interesting setup. Most authors tend to stick with the more "traditional" aspects of growth and training that Kakashi alluded to here. But taking it in a progressive, future-forward direction strikes me as more realistic. I am glad that it comes under Tsunade's impetus.
I like the dynamic you have between Neji and Sakura set up already; you certainly do tout your angst, don't you? I am curious as to who she cheated on him with. And the reflexive comparison with Tenten and Lee was not lost on me.
Moving on to chapter 2.
| Girl-chama chapter 1 . 8/5/2010
This is my cup of tea. I think I'll shall have a read. With a side of closed tenketsu and a smattering of medical ninjutsu, if you please.
Bring on the angst. So, SO glad that you're out of retirement. It only took me twenty minutes to track down your pen name and another few minutes to read through The ShinjiOri fic. I'll probably re-read A Last Request tomorrow, after NNS, of course.
Tonight, though my brain is already muddled from the day and I want to be able to give you well thought out reviews. You deserve them.
And don't delete anything else. Ever.
