I think this is one of the best portrayals of Jiraiya I have ever read. Part of it is the content, but one thing that struck me was its simplicity. Often the twenty truths format is drawn out to far, but the simple insight you put here is touching.

I would have rearranged a few of them for a bit of a greater hit, but this was -brilliant-. I'm a sucker for well written Jiraiya, because there's so much there, so much backstory and so few people exploit that but you gave him more than a face, you created a history and gave him dreams and loves and talents and for that, this fic shines. Simply -shines-.
Your writing is very tight-there's nothing that's missing, nothing left out, and nothing that's too much, so you've got a kind of power there-and it's goddamn brilliant, i must say, to read. I wish i could say more about how much i loved this, how great and well done, but i just keep revisiting some of the most brilliant lines and reimagining your Jiraiya and absolutely loving him and I guess that was the point, in a sad, desperate sort of way.
Fantastic, once again.

Wah, I told myself I shouldn't read this since Jiraiya was my favorite character and this would have obviously depressed me the whole day, but... couldn't help myself -sniffles-.
Not exactly sure how to feel about the whole linkage with Kurenai and Tenten, but overall it was very well done.

I miss him. Well done, I love the Kurenai and Tenten are his daughters part. I love the NaruTen implication even more! The history fits him and I never consisdered his background past the canon flashback. The gears are turning now. Great job,updated your stories soon, I am off to read them again.
Tsunade suggested porn. (:

That was amazing and really well written! I don't know if any of it was true, but it was still awesome!
| MobMentality chapter 1 . 2/6/2008
A very worthy tribute to Jiraiya, who has always been my favourite Naruto character. I am interested in who in canon the blame shall fall upon for never taking care of Naruto.
| Aires Drake chapter 1 . 2/6/2008
I actually started bawling while I was reading this. It was really touching and an amazing tribute to Jiraiya. Bravo!
| Bloodreaver Alpha chapter 1 . 2/6/2008
Fascinating, even though it's not truly a 'fanfiction' per se. Oh, it's fiction, and it's by a fan, but it's not a story. It's an exposition, a diatribe, if you will.
Still...well written. I liked the little Naruto/TenTen blurb in there. Vintage Jiraiya (raises glass). To the Sage of Mount Moko.
| Ibozun chapter 1 . 2/6/2008
I loved it. I think you really have the nature of the character in this 20 cups.
| Beff chapter 1 . 2/6/2008
It's inspired! I very, very much like how you tied in TenTen and Kurenai - definately something that I haven't seen before.
