Long solid story. I’ll admit I didn’t like the Japanese worlds in the story, I kept forgetting what they meant and it just felt out of place when it was written in English, and took me out of the scene. I was here for the Sasuke x Hinata relationship and I think it was done well enough here. Although I do wish Hinata took more initiative than she did because it got a little stale with her blushing and acting like she was the same Hinata from the beginning of Naruto. Sasuke’s was written perfectly fine.
I skipped over a few paragraphs when it came to the end with Kobuto. Neji x Tenten moments were cute, but I wish we saw a little bit more of them, maybe like a mention here or there after they kissed. Sakura and Naruto were written well, and still makes more sense than Sakura x Sasuke or Naruto x Hinata.
All in all I give this a 8/10.

Was a bit hesitant to read at first, because it was stated that Itachi was still evil. More than 10 times trying to read it but the intro part where you said Itachi was still the bad guy kept me from trying. But I'm glad to read it finally. Can't seem to put down my phone for couple of days. This story was beautiful. The epilogue truly give closure. Would love to read this again in the future

This really is a beautiful story and could actually fit in the Naruto anime/ Manga
. Too bad Kishimoto did not give that importance to the byakugan and a story around it. Considering the ultimate villain is a byakugan wielding woman, and there being a tense imang, I wonder why Kishimoto never thought that a kidnapping of Hinata will actually trigger a war, more than Sasuke's defection. The potential of konoha's enemies, like orochimaru or akatsuki, gaining byakugan and sharing an, is so much more of a plot than the "new world" pain, madara or even Sasuke envisioned.

Also gomen nasigomen nasai. Maybe a typo.

Hi, thanks for the great story!
Short notice on daijoobu.
You probably already know this by now, but "daijoubu" can either be written with a u daijoubu or with a macron/line above the ō daijōbu. It shows that the vowel before it is a long one (also called Chouon).
In Japanese long vowels are written double, like ii, uu and aa e.g. Okaasan.
The exception are o and e. O always gets a u e.g. Ohayou, daijoubu. (There are a few exceptions, but only a few like ooki.) And e either is doubled or gets an i e.g. Oneesan, eiga.
The easiest way to always write it the right way, if unsure, is to go with aa, ii, uu, ee, ou or ā, ī, ū, ē, ō.
I hope this helped.

At least you say that Sasuke is turned on by her exaggerated reactions to the simplest touch.
Her waking up to Sasuke and his activated seal was really scary btw, I literally got scared, reading it in the dark alone.
And now their mission, yay

Hinata is just one blushing pixie morsel...
