| X-elemental chapter 5 . 10/8/2013
Elder first cousin with history of hatred towards main house, the man who loves her sister, family-murdering psychopath and traitor who's liable to leave the village if he feels it benefits him.
From the outer side...Something like a disliked younger sibling?, ignored in favor of sister, ...girl to stockholm into 'love'?, genetic stock.
Kumo should be nice. I heard they love Hyuugas so much they would kidnap them.

All of the marriage proposals sound so interesting that i wish you created a short dabbles in which we could see hanabi's future for each guy that she could have married.

I feel horrible for Hanabi whose life is being laid out by people who don't care at all for how she feels. I hope she finds a way to escape from this all. I also have a lot of respect for Neji for trying to protect her and lessen her suffering.

Well it seems I should consider my desire for this story to progress towards Neji/Hanabi as having been dashed upon the rocks of the Inuzuka clan; though I shall hold out in anticipation of Hinata realising Kiba is not befitting her sister.
“He would be good to Hanabi and care for her, even if he didn’t love her. He could do what Neji wanted to do for her sister but wouldn’t be able to.” – What can he do that Neji cannot, if he’s marrying her by Hinata’s request it can not be that he will offer her a true romantic relationship. His clan could perhaps offer her a chance to escape from the oppression of the Hyuuga for brief moments; but Hanabi is the kind of person who would not wish to escape, to instead stand tall, and that Neji can help more with.
Ahh I could list my theories for many more lines, but shall not, for I fear it would cease to be a case of predication, and become instead a attempt to change your own opinions and plans on the future of your story.
I shall remain hopeful of a Neji/Hanabi relationship, as Kiba annoys me far too much to, in my mind, be paired with one of my potential favorites.
I look forward to another update.

Well this certainly is a mess! Poor Hanabi, only a bargaining chip to further her clan :'(
And poor Hinata, feeling she had to abuse Kiba's love for her to protect her sister :'(

*blinks* Ah. Neji. Makes sense now. That would be a great pair there...But so would Kiba. He would be sweet to Hanabi. It would be cute, bu if Hanabi found out that he only proposed because of Hinata she might resent both of them...(might? She would.)Wow. It gets better and better. Update soon please!

I really like this story. It's refreashing to have a Hanabi-centric fic that doesn't put Hinata in a bad light. Although I annoys me that her clan is full of a bunch of *insert multiple expletives here*. But oh well. Well written, good story-line. Keep it up.

I quite like this chapter particularly when she was weighing the marriage proposals. Talk about picking your poison.
| AmillyCalais chapter 4 . 7/3/2009
i can honestly say i don't get it.
hanabi got the seal mark..
but hinata got the pain?
that itself is confusing but
what happens to hinata now..

I feel this story has a lot of potential. The distance between sisters is heartbreaking as is the growing apart of Neji and Hanabi. Hanabi's ability to endure her damnation is admirable.
The way elements of your plot mix is fluid and makes for an interesting story. Of your stories, this one is my favorite.
I'm curious to know why Kiba asked for Hanabi's hand instead of Hinata's...
| Ssol L'statha chapter 3 . 3/30/2009
I do hope this has not been abandoned, I have a bad habit of starting to read a fic, only to find it will never be completed.
So who could the mysterious fourth offer be from? My theory is Neji, he is not one to shy away from answering a question with the truth, unless it is about him. He may not love Hanabi romantically, but wish to marry in order to prevent her from being sworn to a man she doesn’t know or care for.
Then again I am a Neji/Hanabi fan so I look for chances of the pairing.
I’m not exactly sure that’s going on with Hinata, she feels pain whenever a branch house seal is activated? I understand how she might switch powders to make a scar instead of a real seal, but to somehow afflict herself without anyone noticing something strange about the ceremony is odd.
I can not bring myself to like Hinata for what she did, Hanabi is a strong character, and unlike Hinata she always has been. However I always feel that however skilled Hanabi is, she was a slave to the expectations of the Hyuuga. Hinata cheated her out of a choice she made for herself, by undermining Hanabi’s sacrifice, even if Hanabi doesn’t know it.
I hope Hanabi discovers what happened, I don’t imagine she would be pleased.
In closing: please update.
| IMIGHTEADEU chapter 3 . 12/28/2008
So Hinata experiences the effects of the actual seal but Hanabi has the mark such that she is recognized as a branch house member? Am slightly confused.

Well it's interesting but I'm not sure where you're going with it. Your writing is clear and you don't get bogged down in unnecessary details.
