ThreeKittiesDancing chapter 1 . 9/11/2014
Aww, when poor Naruto asks Kakashi "Why does it hurt so much?", you can just feel your heart breaking for him! This was a wonderful little snippet of a story that feels like it was cut right from the anime. Like something that should have been in the manga and anime. (Honestly, didn't Kishimoto know how to build on the drama and angst that was already going on there?!) If something like this had been added to that scene in the story, it would've made Kakashi more sympathetic and empathetic. As Kishimoto chose to waste him, Kakashi was far, far too hung up on Sasuke. You could even make a case for Kakashi's favoriting of the sociopathic Uchiha jerk and outright negligence towards Naruto, who was only HIS SENSEI'S orphaned son, for crying out loud, that led to the tragic way their fates turned out. If only ANYONE had decided to make Naruto their favorite, and thought to really train him and educate him properly, so he would've been prepared for what life had planned for him. It's sweet little stories like this one that show us what should have been.

I thought that given the content of this fic it would have been title 'Why does it hurt?' but, non-the-less it was enjoyable to read. I think that you gave the characters such a realistic effect that I can actually see this scene occurring in the manga. Just a side-note but, I thought that Kakashi's mother died in childbirth though I could be way off.

I like this story:) I think it could have happened, if Kakashi had been the one to speak to Naruto instead of Jiraiya. Unfortunately, we don't get much time with Kakashi or with his thoughts, so it's hard to know what's going on underneath the mask and porn.

But I think this could very well fit. Kakashi, after all, still has some hope in his wayward student. For Jiraiya is has been too many years since Orochimaru's betrayl, with crimes much more horrible, and Sasuke has too many similarities to have hope for Sasuke, I think. He just wants to spare Naruto pain, which is a different sort of wisdom.

I don't really believe that caring even when it hurts should be done because it makes us different from violent, murderous sociopaths. I think we should care even when it hurts-sometimes BECAUSE it hurts-because each person should try and make the world a better place than it was when they arrived...but ultimately that is what Naruto and Kakashi do and try to do anyway:)
