This story is really wonderful. It's short, but there's a lot of story here. We learn quite a bit about Naruto and Sasuke, what their lives are like, what kinds of relationships they have with their families, and what kind of personalities they have. Other fics would have taken several chapters to get this far, which I think would have lessened the impact of the story, unfortunately. There's enough character development here that I think if you changed their names, this would actually stand up as a piece of original fiction.
The ending was my favorite part because it was a real punch in the gut. It was obvious that in a very short amount of time, Naruto managed to have a positive effect on Sasuke, and yet he would never realize it because he'd never be able to remember it. They'd never be able to go much beyond what they have right now, unfortunately. Which is incredibly sad because this is a friendship they both really need, but it can never really develop, always stuck at 50 First Dates. And yet, there's still something positive here because Sasuke defended Naruto from the teasing and Naruto helped her act a little more human, so it's better than nothing.
(And I'll just have to imagine that someday Naruto manages to get back a little bit of his brain functions. Enough so that at least he knows who Sasuke is, even if he doesn't remember everything about her. Is Naruto an absolutely hopeless case? There has to be some potential there, otherwise, why would he be going to school? Book learning isn't possible anymore for someone who has lost declarative memory. And from Naruto's perspective, it would be too frustrating for him to go there day in and day out, class after class where the teacher is talking about material he can't remember. So maybe that's why they send him to school, because there's still a chance?)

Okay, first of all, I have loved you since I joined FFnet many years ago, and yet I have never read this before.
What is wrong with me.
Also, what the hell, man, WHAT THE HELL.
I was busy losing myself in your wonderous magic, and then, all of a sudden, it ends. On such a bittersweet note, at that.
Anazingly in character, and ugh, just UGH.
You've opened me up to a love for Naruto/fem!Sasuke and that ship is now sailing strong.
(I know I'm late; shut up.)
Okay, yeah, lemme just love this forever, okay.

I'm torn between smiling out of happiness and crying in sadness.
This is truly a beautiful story, I can't help but get all tingly inside. The characters are in character, even though Sasuke is a female haha Though this might make her more sensitive to emotions and not as cold hearted...
The bond at the start really reminded me of the bond Sasuke had with Naruto. And then, after learning of Naruto's condition, Sasuke started to see him in a different way - though this does hurt...
I read this story a few times, and each time I did - I was close to tears. Your writing flows really well, and I can even feel the 'pang' in my heard when Naruto asked for Sasuke's name the second time. Oh Naruto...so blissfully ignorant though this does hurt Sasuke indirectly.
This is an amazing and beautiful story. Thank you for writing this! :)

This made me cry. It must be so horrible that your friend forgets everything about you every day...
| Serendipithy chapter 1 . 11/27/2011
Strangely, this reminded me of The Notebook, even though I have only seen parts of the movie (because I'm never quite in the mood to bawl my eyes out.)
I concur with Sasuke's feelings: I felt a strange ache for Naruto's ignorance myself. His blissful little world, where he'll forget something the next day. I feel especially bad for femme!Sasuke though. ):
Brilliant overall though. :)

I want a sequel now...

Sasuke-chan nice, for a girl.

and this is the kind of story where you go, 'and so i cried.' when there's no apparent reason for you to cry. i really liked how just plain creative and unique this story was; especially taking in the prompt. it was also just so damn sad. the characters are portrayed so freakin' well, too, given the female sasuke and the amnesia-naruto who are so many worlds apart from eachother and their canon selves. And yet, and yet...you managed to make it so similiar to their canon selves, too, and so basically? this story is just plain amazing.
however, i think the genre shouldn't be romance. im not sure what it SHOULD be, but...i dont know. dont listen to me.
either ways, thankyousomuch for a fab read. fav.

this story was good but kind of sad and there was just a bit of romance (but it kind of works seeing the characters and the situation)

I love this, poor Naruto and Sasuke... I like the way you wrote the story, especially when Sasuke tells the story of her life and Naruto listens.

It's one of those stories where there's no particular thing to like but everything falls into place to just make it something really great. Even though it's a one shot and I checked couple of times to make sure, I can't help but think it would make a great short story.
The characters have depth to their personalities, the plot is meaningful and overall it's really worth reading due to the author's excellent writing skills.

oh wow...just plain wow. I like this story a lot. The whole idea about the amnesia is really well done. I'm quite surprised that this is the direction you took given the prompt. I'm not surprised with sasuke's behaviour, nor naruto's, but I like the feel of it.
I really really want you to turn this into a multi-chapter fic, pretty please?
