| Broken-Hearts-of-Angels chapter 1 . 10/18/2008
Really...? I can't remember a story written from you (or any, now that I think about it) of Mikoto portrayed as weak. I've always seen her as pushy with her sons and demanding in that type of motherly way about their relationship status's. It's odd how you've written that asian mothers are supposed to be the way Mikoto is acting, when MY mother acts the complete opposite. how does not being able to even date till I'm 18 or possibly sound? Dreary? I know. :P Well, I personally find Sasuke feeling mortified and showing it hilarious in my own sick way, as well as Itachi being swarmed by not fangirls, but by salespeople. I LIKED IT! and Itachi continues to keep that personality of his by slightly dancing around people's questions.

...And I happen to like sunsets, rainbows and unicorns!
Good job with this! I'd much prefer a little break from all the angst and read a genuinely funny anecdote about Raman-verse Sakura and Itachi. :)
I really do hope you write more!

I have been a lurker of your fiction for a while and I must say your ItaSaku's have been very enjoyable :) You managed to keep their characterizations intact despite whatever situation (massacre/non-massacre AU) situation you put them in. Very well done. I will probably search you out on LJ, if that is alright with you!

Loved it! I'm all for the fluff complete with rainbows and unicorns. And I don't think Sakura was a weirdo at all - shopping is shopping! And Itachi did not lose any of his "cool" points by being a willing companion to her. I also liked how you characterized Mikoto here. So I say MORE! More of this version of the Uchihas and more of your Ramen-verse stories.
Thanks again for sharing your stories with us.

Is Itachi blunt enough..."me"
Itachi and Sasuke grocery shopping HA!
| WinterVines chapter 1 . 10/18/2008
Yes, Wikipedia is grand. I love how you ended this fic. I can just imagine the look on Mikoto's face at his reply. He is about the only person that Sasuke wouldn't have a chance against. I am quite amused by the whole grocery scene too. Ha! Take that, Itachi. You shall be forced to interacting with things other than your kunai.
I also love your themes for your fics. I like the other aspect of their life. There are definitely enough fics about their sweet skills and what tough mission they had to go on. I like these ones with the stranger (at least in their world) bases. Besides, I bet it's more challenging to come up with a scene for noncommon topics like yo-yos, butterflies, and paint. It's lovely to expand the brain.
I do believe that your version of Mikoto is how I would picture her in a non-massacre setting. As a mother she should be worried about her sons, as well as be able to tell when they are acting strangely. Wonderful work as always. Now I shall cease talking your ears (or incidently your eyes by reading) off. Thanks for sharing! -KG

Wonderful! I can't wait to read more that are in the Ramen!verse.
| diet coffee chapter 1 . 10/18/2008
Absoluely perfect! I was getting frustrated with Mikoto too, but I couldn't help but laugh either. Amazing! Love the humor and the last scene was absolute right. Good job!

When Itachi decided to go ‘get some things’ with her, the man really had no idea what he had inadvertently agreed to.
Best line for me. :D
I did like this Mikoto, and honestly it's not just Asian moms. My mom is on my ass to have damn kids and doesn't seem to understand that my no means no. (Now she's bugging my sister mwhahaha) My husband is hispanic, so you can imagine the heartattack his mother had when I told her I'm never going to have any. (I'm a troublemaker :D) I will not be used dammit, makes a person feel like a damn factory or something.
Anyhow it was very cute, and honestly I love reading them a bit more humanized. The jutsu flinging as you say it, is a pain in the ass to write at times. Honestly I love grocery shopping and cooking myself. I like being able to choose what I'm going to eat ahead of time. It's nice having that power. :D I understand how Sakura feels and I could almost feel her giddyness in the beginning. My husband likes to come with me, though he tends to rush me. The ease and non angst of this universe is lovely and honestly it's nice to see these fics written by someone who understands the culture the Narutoverse comes from at a deeper depth and integrates bits and pieces into it. It breathes life into it. As always good luck in your writing and the next bit that you do.
