That was a good ending.

Great ending. I'm trying to cry. Keep up the good work.
| Shadow Zeranion chapter 11 . 2/24/2008
Another great series. I like your take on how Orochimaru took care of Kyuubi and how he was eventually defeated. It has a bitter-sweet feel to it and I'm glad you were able to pull it off so well.

| Taliath chapter 11 . 2/24/2008
Brilliant! Very well done story. A bit short, and I did hope to read more of the journey Naruto would've taken to get to this point-but I'm glad that you've managed to finish this very original fic.
I hope to read new fanfiction from you soon!
| THE UNKNOWN chapter 11 . 2/24/2008

| King Hawke chapter 11 . 2/24/2008

| Chronostorm chapter 11 . 2/24/2008
Well it was a sad but happy ending i overall liked and its ending though i wonder what will happen in the years to come i guess it is irrelevant though i expected to go through little bit more given all the points of view you had with the way you were planning to end it, it would have been impossible to do anything well good job on a good fic.
| Muria chapter 11 . 2/24/2008
Wow. That was really cool. I love the whole story line... especially the ending. Highly original and very well-written... :) Very fun to read!

This story is not as "entertaining" as your other works. It's value is its provocativeness and depth that make readers think. There's also a historic precedent. I'm going to guess you are somewhat well read in terms of modern and ancient western history.
Components of Orochimaru's pacification campaign and his use of ANBU reminded me of totalitarian regimes of the early 20th century, while the ending reminded me more of ancient Rome. I was tempted to say Orochimaru resembled Julius Caesar in how he tried to conquer all and sought godhood, but obviously you twisted the ending a bit. "Minato" is the exact opposite of the Roman Empire and Naruto is nothing like Octavian Caesar (Augustus). Still I can't help but wonder if the three people that knew what happened (Naruto, Hinata, Haku) was a play on the second triumvirate (Octavian, Mark Antony, Lepidus).
I guess in that sense, this story is closer towards the beginning of the Roman Republic post the reign of Roman King Tarquin the Proud than the end. Your mentioning of the divisions of power (Kage, aristocratic council, public assembly) is also rather representative of the divisions in Rome (office of consuls/temporary dictator, senate, tribune of the plebeians). And I'm sure we can imagine all sorts of way in which "Minato" could eventually fall apart just as Republican Rome did in the absence of wise and just leadership.
These things probably weren't even on your mind, but like I said, this story promotes thinking and made me recall some of my history lessons so well done. :) Very well done.

Heh :D This is deffinately a twist I would never have expected :) Nice story :)
| dan01 chapter 11 . 2/24/2008
This chapter was absolutly stunning and amazing. Pleas make a story about manato surviving and staying as the hokage and leading Leaf into a time of peace and make it epic like
A Mothers Love.
