|Reviews for The World of Dating, According to Shikamaru|

This was hilarious. It's so Shikamaru, setting up all of his grand plans before he finally realizes that they just don't work on girls, lol. Despite how serious the aftermath of Asuma's death was, I think the cigarette attempt made me laugh the most. Thanks for the great read~

This had me smiling and laughing the whole time, inimparticularly enjoyed how Azuma explained relationships.

Ha, this was almost crackish in its humor because Shikamaru was such a major dork. Such a dopey lovestruck teenage boy. Adorable. This is the kind of Shikatema I like to see.

This was utterly HILARIOUS. Especially the part after poor Asuma died- the fact that you managed to make me crack up laughing at that part is astounding. XD

Hahah, this was adorable and HILARIOUS! It was nice to get to know Shikamaru under that lazy, indifferent exterior :)

Very cute! I love the storyline and the way you used the point of view so smoothly!
Good job and have a nice day!

As you no doubt cunningly planned, I found myself giggling and snickering about every other paragraph. Well written, well characterized, and well plotted, you fiend. :)

Love this! So funny, and I love that Shikaku thinks his son is gay, that's the best. :)

Haha, this was too good. The characterization of Shikamaru was in character, yet...different. A good different. Really appreciated the little sentiment where Asuma compares women to a "game of chess", because, after thinking about it, I realize it's completely true.
On the Temari/Shikamaru pairing - it's good for this kind of story. Though I'm more of a Shikamaru/Ino shipper, I appreciate this regardless.
And on a final note, I really liked Shikamaru's interaction in the beginning with his father. It was just...really, really funny, esp the part where he says that the Nara men usually go for strong women; and in Shikamaru's life, there ONLY seems to be strong women (ie: Ino, Temari, etc). So I appreciated that bit.
Okay (: I'm done. I realize my review is completely out of order and way too short, but I honestly really enjoyed this piece overall. Happy writing!

I'm not entirely sure how I feel about the glossing over of Asuma's death [which, to be honest, would have put quite a damper on your humor!fic if you had delved into that, but...] but I thought the rest of your fic was wonderfully engaging and the quiet humor in here was hilariously funny. [Asuma and his thoughts on women... bloody priceless.]
Your Shikamaru!voice was superbly done, and man-everyone around him was so in character it made me want to grin like an idiot. If only these things would happen in canon...
Oh, and great job fitting the events into canon-that's not always easy. Fantabulous job all around!

Funny and cute! Loved it!
Ah, poor Shikamaru…
| ThisAccountIsInactiveForever11 chapter 1 . 12/13/2009
That was a cool story! I loved it! But yeah, I never thought Shikamaru was sexist.. To me, he was one of those boys that just didn't understand girls and had all this pressure crap about acting 'manly'. Temari is the perfect match for him. _
