I really enjoyed this chapter. On one hand, Itachi is one of my favorite characters and he is totally amazing. But on the other hand, he really unnerves me some times. Great job with this though and I look forward to your next update.

Hey there, Author!
I hope this conveys my sincerity effectively. I stumbled across your story a couple of days ago and it has completely absorbed me. I'm glad to say that it actually moved me, case hardened as I am. I've been reading fics for years and I'm glad to tell you that I found yours thrilling. It was well written -your prose is commendable- nicely punctuated and was for once a well thought out story. It is also in keeping somewhat of what we could possible expect from Neji and Hinata. In particular, I found it impossible to tear away from the way Neji is just drawn to his princess and this unique relationship they have. How they have this special bond, that is just theirs, no matter how hurtful it is or how cruel the world is -or they are to each other- to them for keeping their bond intact. Apart from that I do have some opinions and question that I hope you won't mind. I don't understand why Hinata keeps calling Neji niisan and why it doesn't bother him? I understand that it's her special word for him and the weight it carries between the two, but why this in particular? they aren't siblings..and cousinxcousin is not frowned upon in most societies, it's legal biologically, politically and socially.
Secondly, does Hinata still love Neji as much or is it decreasing? because over the few final chapies you made Neji's feelings clear but hers seemed to me a bit ambiguous. They share a special bond, where he protects her in his own way and loves her in his own dark mind, and I'm sure you mentioned in Possession that she loved him throughout, unconditionally and sincerely? perhaps a more elaboration on that might be helpful? or the questions he asks himself, one way might be to answer them through Hinata's thoughts for example and yes, this is a VERY bad example but it's the only one I could find at the moment, so here goes: like in chap 13: "Why? Why was she always running away from him?" stuff like that, when it runs through Neji's head, I wonder it too, but the answers to these things seem too subtle sometimes. or like in chapter 6 " "This is not destiny," she spoke, her soft voice barely audible. "This is wrong." " I don't know what she was referring to when she said it was 'wrong' i.e. that they were cousins or was something else the matter?
Anyhow, I read Possession too, but I seem to be much more fond of this work of yours. I hope you do extend it. In this one Neji seems more...redeemable and more aware of his love for Hinata, consciously, and realizes quickly if he crosses the line or if he really hurt her. I wouldn't mind (at all) if this were to turn into a fic on its own, independently. I'm glad to have read this over and over again, it's a beautiful story and you've shown a beautiful relationship, with all its flaws and all its strengths. Overall, Bravo! I don't usually review so much, but for this I was compelled to.
Have a nice day and please update soon, I'll be holding by breadth. D

Ahh, the pains and annoyances of having two older brothers. I could relate to that.-_- Interesting chapter, can't wait for more.

I liked it, but some how this just feels strange to me... This chapter reflects emotions and concepts a young child (as they are at this time) are far too mature. Children can feel these things, I'm sure, but understand them like Neji is supposed to be doing? Impossable even for a genius. And the excessive use of japanese words mid sentence is distracting and has much esence of weeboo. (Srsly just say cute.)

"It wasn't the little brothers that were such a nuisance. It was always the older ones causing the trouble. And now, instead of only one, Hinata found herself with . Just fabulous." Haha, that was awesome! xDD And very true with Hinata..

This whole thing is awesome. But one thing that gets me. The main house consists only of the head, his wife, his unmarried children, and his parents (if they are still alive). Multiple branches form from main house. With all of the younger sons marring and creating their own branch (well, some of them might become an 'adopted son in law' but that's kinda rare), and these branches create their own branches in the same way, and so on. Each further branch answers to all of the branches above it, and the main house. They all consist of the same members as the main house: The head of the branch, his wife, his unmarried children, and his parents (again, if they are still alive).
It's actually possible that Neji would be married to Hinata as an adopted son in law. (Though I have no idea who would actually head the main house. Naruto 'verse is different enough that it's pretty much wild mass guessing on that part.)
Sadly I can't give you all the right words, or a better description, as I can no longer find the source, and google proves to be of no use.

Great chapter. I loved it! So cool that you're not giving up on your fic or readers. We won't give up on you ether :)
Please please update soon!

Neji's line near the end was so poetic, reminded me of Romeo the dog. I think my heart stopped ;_;... **sniff* Too good, but my favorite part has to be whenever Neji calls Hinata "Brat-sama." 'Tis the best-est.
