Guest chapter 1 . 5/18
This is awesome! yet so sad. Actually, I think I love Karin a little because of this.

And no, I didn't hate Karin personally. But if a certain Uchiha is involved I preferred Sakura over her. That's all.

I still don't understand the band aid part. They were obviously hickeys but where did they come from because you said sakura didn't given them to him? great story though I first read this in 2013 and I always find myself coming back to read it again.

i'm a sasusaku die-hard shipper. i'll put up a shrine in my room for them. HOWEVER reading this left a bad taste in my mouth. cheating is cheating whoever does it.

That was sad and beautiful...and I'm glad you made it from Karin's POV, that makes it a lot easier to swallow. Sasuke's something else tho...well, he's Sasuke. Good thing he now has a kindhearted Sakura to balance him out. But that was really sad...and beautiful. And this review ends now.

There's really no way to romanticize what Sasuke and Sakura did and make it OK. If Sasuke and Sakura are so in love, Sasuke shouldn't have married Karin in the first place. At the very least, they could've had the decency to formalize a divorce before getting together. "I let him go too" says Sakura about Sasuke and Karin's marriage, as she blatantly continued to have an affair with Sasuke after he's married. The "love" portrayed here fails to be cute or romantic when it involves treating other people like crap to get your own gratification. You did a great job in showing a grittier and more realistic portrayal of love. While there are plenty of stories that laud the idea of being loyal to your love interest and putting him or her first at all costs, this fic does a fantastic job of demonstrating how that mentality is not morally sound and can blind your sense of basic decency and respect toward other people. Normally anyone who's an obstacle to the main pairing is villainized in order to dehumanize them and make it OK to do horrible things to this enemy-to-true-love. I appreciated your sympathetic Karin because there are a lot of stories that romanticize the whole "male finds nicer girl than his currently bitchy girlfriend" trope (which really begs the question of "Why are they dating in the first place?"), and I felt like yours was a more realistic take on affairs. I have to say though, your Karin is probably much kinder and much more gracious than most people would be in that situation. A situation in which literally the only thing she was doing wrong was existing because god forbid someone inconvenience the extramarital affair of true love.

THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE FANFICS EVER. Also, I love how Karin was depicted here - not the TOTAL bitch kind at all! And, that's quite refreshing hehe. ANYWAYS, THIS IS A CLASSIC

I read this and its absolutely amazing. The level of angst and heart wrenching pain and love just.. Gripped me. I felt so sad after I read this, the angst was heartbreaking. It is a absolutely gorgeous piece. I appreciate Karin now and I love her, but I also love SasuSaku. Still so painfully beautiful.

I don't know. I've read this countless times but I still feel hurt for Karin. Damn, I still couldn't stop myself from hating Sasuke and Sakura. Selfish, really. If they loved each other so damn much that they couldn't afford living without one another, then why hadn't they married in the first place? They just had to go and involve someone else who clearly was very devoted to her marriage. I mean, to see your spouse cheating on you so blatantly, not even denying it nor trying to hide it, is death in itself and to endure that for years, god, there's just so much heartache that someone could take. That's commitment right there. And Sasuke, the self-absorbed bastard never even gave the marriage a chance. He married her for God's sake, might as well make it work, right? But no! He had to sleep with another woman and would not even show a single ounce of remorse for it. What the hell? And whatever babble Sakura may say, it would never change the fact that she helped in destroying a marriage, slept with a married man, and devastated said married man's wife in the process. And as far as I know, if you do that, in love or not, you're a mistress, a home wrecker. They're just really so fucking selfish.

Sasuke's still a jerk. If he wasn't gonna let Sakura go even if he's married, why didn't he just marry Sakura in the first place? That's horrible.

P.S. If canon Sasuke is gonna end up with a girl, I would like that to be Karin. Not because I hate Sakura, I just want Lee-kun with her (I don't know why I like them together).
