I LOVED THE PART OF KIBA'S CALL WITH TSUNDADE
| lollie chapter 24 . 2/8
Without a doubt this fic is in my top 5
It would be in my top 3 but i'm not happy with how it ended. I did like the ending (love happy endings) but it was a little disappointing to have the end be about Hinata and Kiba then Naruto and Sasuke :/
Apart from that i loved it!

I must honestly say, I'm a lurker... I hardly ever comment on fanfictions - unless it's a really freaking good story.
And you know what?
This story has completely stolen my heart. It's BEYOND good.
I read the whole thing, all 3 stories, and now that it's over I feel like something inside me died. I hate it when you read a story that completely devours you suddenly ends... This story has been a part of my daily routine, everytime after college I'd come home and spend at least 3-4 hours on this. I freakin' stayed at home despite a friend celebrating his brithday because of this fic, just because it was so awesome it didn't let me go!
So I want to thank you. Reading such amazing stories is a rare thing. It was perfect from the beginning of "Roommates" to the end of "Follow the Leader". Completely and utterly perfect. And you better be proud of this because you did so well that I am definitely going to re-read this story in a few months. I can already tell you that I am going to feel as devastated as I am right now once the story ends again.. Well, duh, however. Definitely worth it!
Please do me the favor and never take this story down. Never delete your account or anything. You are truly an amazing author and I really enjoy reading all of your fanfictions. You should feel proud of yourself - You deserve it.
Everyone who hasn't read her stories yet - Do it. You will have a great time, but be prepared to feel a little lost once the story ends. You won't want it to end, because it's too good.
And again, thank you for this story. I really have to thank you so, so, so much. Reading this brought me so much enjoyment, so many emotions...
Just thank you for this. You are simply amazing

You never fail in amazing me, sarge, ever.
I absolutely cannot, cannot, Thank you enough. For this story and ALL of the other ones as well.
Nor can I Thank you enough for the hard work you've put in every chapter in each of these stories. The time you took to write and go over and just the mere time that you took thinking of the plot or the story in general, Thank you. :)

Oh my god. NOO! Not Kiba! He was like my favorite character.
I literally started crying when i read that part. Yeah, i know, it's not real, but still, it was Kiba!
Love your story still though. Even though you posted this years ago, but i just started reading them, so yeah! :]

I remember reading Roommates my senior year of high school and reading Blood and Tears right before starting college. Now I make it a sort of tradition to read those two at the start of a new year. However this year I did not manage to read them due to life getting in the way. That being said, when this story came out and my friend recommended it, both her and you cautioned the darker turn it will take. I took your "if you liked the way Blood and Tears ended don't read this" to heart and each year I would only read the first two. But this night something in me said "it's time". So here I am, first chapter in, seeing the characters once more and bringing back all the events that happened before connecting them, and there's no turning back. Here's to the ending!

This fic is the best thing I've ever read in my life. If you changed the names and published a book I would buy every single copy and make a special bookcase for them. I. Love. These. Stories. You are the best fucking writer I've ever come across. I..I don't think I can express how much this trilogy made my days. I'd come home from school and quickly turn on my computer to spend hours and hours of awesome fan fic reading. It was an amazing story. I loved how it just wasn't about Naruto and Sasuke having sex. The story was just...AWESOMENESS! You were super sneaky with your plot twists but it made me so happy. I would get all sad that you killed off someone or something bad happened and then BOOM! They're back. Especially when Kiba was back. I was like "I FUCKING KNEW IT! He couldn't have died!" Thank you so much. Thank you thank you thank you! You are a THE literary master and I shall worship these three works of pure greatness in my memory throughout my whole life. So...ya... Thought I'd write that down... Um... Ok... Bye...

Brilliant ending. I like that you changed it to a happy one _ im glad i did read the whole trilogy and not stop at the second one. i was panicking when i got to chapter 20 of this cause i thought there was not ending and i was going to hunt you down and make you finish it but silly me i didnt scroll down enough to see the last four chapters :S
You write very well, create a clear picture and just do what you do really well. I may even read the trilogy a couple times more when i have time :P I've read a couple fics but your one really clicked with me. Im glad i found and read it, I kinda feel better for reading it cause everything is okay in the end and if its not okay then its not the end !

I have a lot of mixed feelings about this fic. If you don't want to read a long-ass review, then I'll just say in summary: the plot was good, but your character development could use some work. If you want an explanation for why I think so, then keep reading.
It seems like the main idea behind this part of the trilogy was just to torture Naruto some more and that's about it. What did Naruto learn by going through all of this? How did he change as a character? What was the theme of this story? A lot of that kind of basic storytelling stuff is missing from this part of the trilogy. I think if you'd just killed Sasuke in the end then that would have made the whole fic really feel pointless - saving Sasuke was the driving force behind the whole plot - so thank god you didn't go down that path.
The plot of this fic was good, I can definitely praise that aspect of it. The betrayal with Pein, Sasuke's kidnapping, and all of Naruto's tasks were pretty exciting. And as I said, saving Sasuke was the whole point of the plot, so it was good that they managed to do it. If Sasuke had died, it would have been like going to a movie about a runner trying to make it to the Olympics and then 5 minutes before the movie ends, the runner misses his flight. People would wonder why the hell they sat through the whole movie only to get ripped off in the end. You can pull off a plot twist like that if and only if the theme of your story was about disappointment, or if missing out on the Olympics was meant to teach your main character a lesson he needed to learn.
But what did Naruto need to learn in this fic? He was an annoyingly beloved character, so you'd think he didn't have a flaw in the world with how often everyone kept telling him it wasn't his fault, don't worry about it, etc. Terrible things happened to everyone Naruto was closest to and they all kept pitying him and having faith in him. To me, the realest character in the fic was Neji because he got pissed for what happened to Hinata (come on! anybody would feel the same way in his position!), yet everyone got mad at him for it. Yes, Naruto had suffered and was suffering, but did that mean people should happily go to jail/get shot/get expelled for his sake?
When Sasuke was kidnapped and Pein asked him who was watching out for him if he was so busy watching out for Naruto, I thought that might be where Naruto's character development was supposed to be, that he he was going to realize he never did a good job protecting Sasuke the way Sasuke protected him. But that didn't happen. Sasuke was kidnapped, Naruto was emo; Kiba was shot, Naruto was emo; Kiba died, Naruto was even more emo; Sasuke died, Naruto was the emoest; then everybody came back to life and Naruto was happy. The end.
BTW, the Anon below makes a good point about doing too many character death psyche-outs. I already said why I thought Sasuke's death would have been a bad idea, so it's not like I wanted either him or Kiba to die, BUT when it comes to plot twists, you've either got to shit or get off the pot. Either kill someone when you say you're going to, or don't do it at all. Two pretend deaths in a single fic is two too many. I'm not even sure why there had to be a pretend death with Kiba to begin with. Him pretending to die didn't contribute anything to the plot, other than make Naruto more emo, and more pitied.
Well, even of this wasn't the concluding fic to the Roommates Trilogy that I would have liked, I tip my hat to you for not only having written a trilogy, but have completed the whole blasted thing. Not many fic writers can boast of having done that. Good show, madame.
