Ahh, this was so well-written. I think you did an amazing job describing the world from Gaara's point of view.

I must say, when I was told this was the best "canon" Gaara interpretation...they really weren't kidding. You seem to understand him in a way. Almost too well. Your writing is lovely, and I'm a bit sad that you have not updated in over eight years...but I suppose you have your own life to attend to. I do hope you come back to this story some day. Even if it's not likely.

Wow, this is just so brilliant. I love how you depict Gaara's introspection. You are awesome at depicting realistic characters!

I really like your take on Gaara: he seems really in character and you can empathise with him, which is hard to do with a young Gaara, since he's so irrational for some things, and yet totally rational for others. The introspection bit was really well done: I liked all the bits with the teddy bear, and Yashamaru... but it did go on a bit long. Aynway, though. It's awesome. XD

You MUST update this. This is one of the best Gaara fanfics I have ever read, and I would be very interested in reading more. In that one author's note you said this story clocked in at twelve chapters. It is my sincere hope that you post these.
Gaara's thought process, and your portrayal of his life after Yashamaru, it just breaks my heart, but in the best way.
I am wondering about how Temari and Kankuro are handling the fact that Gaara just ran out of the house all helter skelter with no protection.
So, I again implore you, please update!

I agree with another commented that this is perhaps THE best depiction of Gaara I have seen anywhere. Absolutely amazing.
I disagree with some of the other comments of your chapters being too long and such. I think they are perfect. I believe your story, and that's what any writer aims for I can feel it and see it.
Beautiful. If only you had finished it.

I really hope you're eventually planning to write more of this story. I really like it. It's probably one of -if not- the best 'transition' stories I've read. The last chapter was a little monotonous, but I personally enjoyed it, though I really like how you portrayed Kankuro and Temari in the first chapters. Very good, one of the best, I hope you keep writing!

I wonder what temari is thinking/or doing when Gaara left.

YOU NEED TO FINISH THIS STORY! It is really good and it is one of my favorite.

Great story overall, I love how the writing reflects Gaara's thoughts and emotions. I have to admit though, this chapter dragged a bit and since it was so long, it felt even longer. Gaara is totally in character, and it's kind of neat to see how he might think about his life and the people around him. Is there more coming or is this the end of the story? It'd be neat to see how he goes from mentally unstable to Kazekage.

It's a good story though very sad and long. Perhaps a bit more could happen in the chapters?
