Hello. I'm fully aware that I'm five years too late for this party and as you stated at your profile, you've most-definitely moved on from fanfiction writing. However, this will not stop me from typing this review. Even though the chances of you possibly even reading this review is close to zero, I would still like to to thank you with all my heart for creating this and as well as all your other works that you've graced us.
This was utterly beautiful. You're one of the few authors that I've ever encountered that created fanfiction, this piece of literature that majority of modern society frown upon on because most of the time it's nothing more than fan delusion, into something much serious and a work of goddamn art. This one of the fics that made me want to curse the orignal writer and ask them 'WHY CAN'T THIS HAPPEN IN THE SERIES?!' Oh my gosh, seriously, I was literally banging my head against my pillow and was screaming that line. I th

As a die hard fan of two different couples, one of them being Narusaku, the way you wrote Itachi and Sakura has converted me into a ItaSaku lover! The way they interacted towards each other made it seem so realistic to me and the best thing of all is that they were still in-character! This story was a masterpiece. In-character, well paced, the raw emotions, not to mention the hot scenes! ;) After I finished reading a full chapter, I kept craving for more. Even in the last chapter I wanted me more! lol Off to read your other stories! :) again nicely done!

Oh my god, this was amazing! So well written. I have no words to describe how utterly incredible your story is. Just... wow. Speechless.
Seriously, I wish I could leave a more comprehensive review, but this just blew my mind.

Hi. Sorry, I was the guest who said hi because I tried logging in to post a review after I typed hi and it totally glitched on me and only posted hi. So...anyways. Listen. Your story is incredible. I loved it from start to finish and the way you wrote the characters made me love it even more. I never once felt like they were out of character. On a more emotional note, I am an avid fan of Itachi because of his true sacrifice to Konoha and I honestly want to just thank you for giving Itachi his own happy ending in this story. Sakura has been my role model since I was young and first started following the series. But, to finish off and not ramble on, like I said. Thank you for this story. I know it sounds weird but with Naruto ended now, and my journey to adulthood is now reaching a finality of sorts, your story was just what I needed right now. As weird as it sounds. I'm rambling now. Sorry. Again, thank you for Itachi's alternate happy ending. My two favorite characters were perfectly painted into a happy ending I always pictured. And you portrayed it flawlessly.

You know, this was my very first fanfic that I read on this site and this particular work was the reason why I loved fanfiction and how it inspired me to write. I first read this when I was 12 and everytime I rushed home to read this because it the way you wrote was magical and it was enjoyable. No words could describe how I felt exactly about this but really, I really enjoyed this and I found it sad that you didn't want to continue writing because really, this was the best thing I've ever read on this site. Anyway, this is a great story and really, reading it back after 4 years ertainly made me appreciate this gem more :

This was so powerfully and beautifully written. I spent the last three days reading it, which seems absurd for something of fifteen chapters. But it was really filled with enough content of a story double its size.
In the real deal, compared to this, it just seems such a depressing tragedy that Itachi and Sakura only met once. And even then it was brief and the two of them weren't truly facing off with each other. I feel that if the manga had gone a completely different route, they would have truly enjoyed each other's company.
For now, though, this story has sedated me with all the desires that will never be fulfilled by Kishimoto. It's so well paced, reasonable, elaborate with exquisite detail, easy to follow without having to swallow something completely ludicrous that is found in most fanfiction, and a truly emotional journey. Itachi and Sakura have been my favorite characters, even before Sakura proved herself and the truth of Itachi was revealed. And though I still appreciate the story that Kishimoto has given us, I still can't help but feel as if these two characters have been shitted on the most.
I sincerely appreciate you sticking to Sakura's natural talents, keeping true to how strong and raw she is despite what the majority of the fandom believes. Out of all of them, she's grown the most, getting to where she is all on her own and you kept to that so nicely in this story. Also, I actually really liked the way you had Sakura realize that her initial feelings towards Sasuke were nothing more than superficial. With where the manga is heading now, it still irks me how desperately she holds on to her love for him and it's holding her back. Do I want them to be together in the future and have Sasuke realize what she truly is to him and have Sakura's infatuation grow into something deeper and more caring? Yes, but that's because that's where I think the story is heading and it's the only thing relatively reasonable that I'll grudgingly swallow. However, if I really had it my way, things would have gone way differently and Sakura would be better met by either Itachi or Kakashi.
That's why I loved this piece you've written here so much. Because for those of us that love her character and are frustrated by the injustice her creator has dropped on her over and over, you give readers like me something to hold close, a 'second chance' when we're obviously not going to be all that fond of the real outcome. If that makes any sense at all.
I noticed very few errors that I'll critic because I like to give fair and honest reviews. Also, judging by your message on your profile, you're aspiring for bigger things than writing fanfiction, so I'm sure you'd appreciate constructive criticism more than most. Mostly just forgotten spaces between two words that were obviously minor typos. That and maybe space out your chapters more? Though, it could just be your style of writing and, if I had been a reader way back when you originally wrote this, than I'm sure I would have been thrilled with the enormity of the updates. I just mean that there was a lot to take in per chapter when they could have separated out, maybe even making this something around thirty chapters.
Is that an necessary fix? No. Just my own opinion. :)
I do hope you still read reviews that you receive despite being done with fanfiction. I just want to thank you for taking me through this journey with such a wonderful story, and for making it easy with your talented writing skills. If you do in fact publish something- or have already- I'd pick it up off the self in an instant. Good luck if you do have those aspirations, and thanks again.

| Marya chapter 3 . 7/2/2014
I love this story so far, its plot is pretty different and the characters are very likeable! Just one critique: you write Sakura as if she's around 30 year old, instead of 17. She started training with Tsunade when she was 14. She doesn't have years of experience. Unless you deviate from canon, it's hard to picture her as a veteran. Even if she'd spent those three years with her head stuck inside medicine books memorizing information, she'd be falling short (especially considering that Itachi's problem resembles an autoimmune disease, which is not something one sees every day even in a ninja village ). I understand we're talking about a different kind of medicine here though, so I will try to think of Sakura as a 17 yo doctor prodigy.
