Aww, I've been intrigued when I saw this in some fic recs, because it's Shino and Tenten. They're characters that are just, "there" but with minimum development and exposure. And aside from the typos and some other mistakes that I didn't notice (if there are), it was quite an enjoyable read. Sometimes the "goals" are quasi-spoilers though. Haha, it just feels that way. It's likewise good that the brevity matches the wit in it. The pure dialog at the end of the chapters are so win.

Loved the fic! I don't think you should worry so much about Shino's POV, because I loved every bit of it you wrote. It's a very untouched character, not much is known from him in the series, so there aren't a lot of fics about Shino; however, the way you made him was just perfect! Also, the OC family was very well developed, I hope I could read more about all of them.
I've seen there is an unfinished sequel to the fic, and that you actually have not updated for more than a year so I guess maybe you won't, but just you know, I will be waiting for more!
Thanks for writing,

Happy Fanfic Writer's Appreciation Day!
It's been some years since I read your fics, but I remember them. I really enjoyed your Naruto works- the reason I found your account- particularly this one (The Middle Ground) and the other Shino / TenTen works. I'm a Shino fangirl at heart, and it's nice to see well-written, interesting stories that feature him as one of the main focal characters. The dynamics you have between him and TenTen always made for a fun read.
