I have been waiting and watching and rereading this beautiful roller coaster but please tell me you have given up on it completely

I've been enjoying the depth of research into Japanese culture and practicalities up to this point, was kind of amused by Naruto's glaringly American interpretation of everything, and loved the creative characterisations of Naruto & Sasuke and all the associated fun until this one glaring issue in this chapter.
That is - the comment about Japanese women being the "antithesis of fierce". If it's just Naruto being an unreliable narrator as per usual, then it's just another hilarious example of his kooky POV. If it's meant to be a neutral comment (which is how it comes off, being slotted in two pretty neutral statements about what Kushina and Minato are doing, so if it's intended to be the former then maybe rework that paragraph a little so it has more of Naruto's 'hippie voice' in it), then it comes off as a either a hiccup in your research or another poor interpretation of the Japanese concept of "yamato nadeshiko", which can be summed up as "Silk Hiding Steel".
The ambiguity in tone leading to the second interpretation really wrecked the second half of this chapter for me, because it either makes me question the depths of your research/immersion in Japanese culture or your writing ability, both of which I had a great deal of respect for until this chapter.

Well you ended it right where the money is didn't you. Cliff-hanging for 5 years. Not nice.

lowkey Naruto is a completely a-hole in this one but god I love him.

Wow, this story is completely fantastic, absolutely amazing. I absolutely love the development of Naruto and Sasuke, both of them as separate and as a couple, Naruto's thoughts in love, in being in love, in Sasuke are completely beautiful, he's just so honest, so in love, and he gives everything for it! And Sasuke, with that last chapter, broke my heart, honestly I don't think Fugaku has excuses, one thing is trying to protect your family, to take care of your children but what he does it's just completely abuse, there's no other word for it,
I think what most infuriates me about the situation it's that he knows that is a bad thing, because if he didn't think like that he wouldn't mind if other people knew, but instead he forces Sasuke to lie, and I wonder for how many years now. I really hope Sasuke can escape from all that, because it's not only that his own father treats him like this, without any concern about his son's life or integrity, but Mikoto and Itachi? How can they be son blind? They live with them! Naruto, who just came into Sasuke's life knew something was wrong and he was right! And them? They had no clue!
But finally the true is coming out :) I wish you could continue this story because is amazing in every possible way, every chapter is incredible! Wonderful story.

Wow... This is so freaggin good, this last chapter git me biting my nails and about to fall of my chair... Can't help but wonder why is it always the amazing stories (because I changed my mind, this is not freaggin good, but AMAZING) are the ones not finished most of the time...
I don't complain, though. I enjoyed while it lasted, and who knows? Maybe one day you'll come back...
Take care *grateful grin*

I don't think I ever told you how much I loved this story of yours and that is a real tragedy because I think you should know that it's one of my locked-in, all-time, forever favorites. I fall so far into this story whenever I come back. Your writing is really just my style. I know it's been a long time since you updated this story but I'm always curious about the ending you had planned—not telling you to update, just telling you I'm curious. I hope in my heart that it turns out okay in the end, I guess because this story touched a part of me inside that I haven't told anyone about (like all favourites do) and so I need it to turn out okay for me to be okay. If that makes sense.
You're still the best, antisaints. Always. Thank you for this story.

Shit is going to go down! (Since it doesn't have more chaptes, in my head) damn, thank you for the story.

Dude. You can't writ 108,729 words and 18 chapters of pure unadulterated literary genius and not continue it. It's hearsay! You better continue, or else I will be very sad. Possibly cry a bit. There might be some anger mixed in there somewhere as well. It probably won't affect your life in the slightest, but hopefully the knowledge that somewhere, some girl is really sad because of you will motivate you to continue writing this awesomeness. Hopefully it will make it to 159,000 words, but beggars can't be choosers. Keep writing!

This has done such things to me, I mustn't speak of them.
