So this was difficult to read, in a good way.
I think I'll need some tea now. And fluff. Yes, that's a good plan.
Thank you for the story.

I can't say I enjoyed reading this story - but I couldn't stop either. It was - I must say- a depressing piece of work; Nevertheless, it was magnificent. I particularly admired how you portrayed Sasuke's macabre introspection. It is a darker and more mature version of the actual character in the Naruto series. Just one thing that irked me: Mikoto. In your story, she is so weak-willed. Remember, this is a jounin-level shinobi! One moment, Sasuke calls his own mother a "bitch," and the next time Mikoto and Sasuke are together, they are sharing secrets while Mikoto is grinning "mischievously." I really wish Mikoto wasn't so submissive (especially with Kushina as her best friend) to everyone else in her family (there were countless times I just wanted her to punch Fugaku), but, then again, I am not the author. Overall, great job!

I really liked part 1 with Sasuke's pov and it's very well written, detailed and the mood is just right for this kind of story. I do have one big issue though; part 2 with Itachi's pov is horriby, horribly out of character. Now, I'm not one to hammer on this usually but a lot of things you wrote in his part just don't match with his personality or with canon mentioned things.
I don't know how far the serie was back when you wrote this but by now it's revealed that Itachi deeply loved Sasuke and that he was a very caring older brother. The circumstances didn't allow him to act upon this but he did care a lot about him. I also think you wrote him a bit too harsh/cruel/uncaring at some points, he was always respectful towards Mikoto and yeah, I don't think it's really how Itachi in character would've thought/acted, but it's a good story if you consider it a darker version of the canon story.
It's just that the Sasuke part felt rather canon and more in character so I expected Itachi's part to be like that as well so the contrast made it even more clear how not canon he was written. But I did like readin it a lot nontheless :)

I've read this so many times. Well over seven. And I can honestly say I don't think I'll ever get sick of it. The language is beautiful as well as poetic and powerful. You are talented.

This writing style is just so damned different than all the others that I think I'll reread this. And again after that. And again. And because this says SO MUCH about their relationship.
(I think killed the brackets.)

First of all: WOW!
Now that I have managed to overcome my joy at this fic, I would like to inform you of a few things.
The way you show that even in the darkest of times, there was still some light showing. Though the story is a clear tragedy, you described the hope shining through subtly, and that was what made this story so great for me. You portrayed the emotions of both brothers amazingly well. Your perspective of their story was interesting and drew me in very well. Your writing is very well done and the story was very original and unique.
Awesome Job because honestly this was a story worthy of so much praise.

Your writing is just beautiful - flowing smoothly (as Itachi would prefer, of course) and showing the characters perfectly, especially Sasuke. It's just brilliant. :)
