Someone needs to kill Shade. Seriously. She brings out a cold fury in me that I thought was only an expression. Calling Naruto a monster. Bad enough the village does it but for that demonic slut to... Grr ok no longer a cold fury. Lets just say someone better fix this or Im gonna break something.

I'm actually disappointed that you decided to end this story. I didn't even have trouble with the pacing as I read through it, as I was enjoying the focus on character development instead of action, and think this story could make a superb fic with not too much more skill than presented here. Yes, you overpowered your OC's and put too much focus on them early in the story, but balanced that out over the course of the story with all of the attention given to expanding upon the Hyuga family and making the two mages much weaker if not given the time to prepare. There was a bit more citrus than I like, but that is really a matter of taste.
Two things I would like to add to my prior review is that the word is hollow, not hallow, and you abuse apostrophes rather horrendously. Since this is apparently an older work moved to the top of the list by the announcement that it is dead, I hope you have already corrected these flaws. If not, well, your work is still good enough here to read even with those issues.

Yay for WAFF! What can I say, I'm a sucker for the warm and fuzzies.
I like what you did with Sasuke and Sakura. While it is a bit out of character, it is exactly what canon Sakura needed to hear, and at least you give the excuse of Sasuke having someone to compare her to to inspire him to tell her what she was missing.
Part of why I go ahead and add this review way back here in such a long story is that I have noticed that you have never used lose/loose correctly in any usage I can recall seeing in your works. I suggest looking on wiktionary, as it will do a better job of describing the difference than I can do, and I personally find the site to be a wonderful resource when I am writing and want to make sure I am using the right word/spelling. No way am I going to stop reading at this point, I merely wanted to offer that bit of constructive criticism while it was fresh in my mind.

Seriously, you have taken naruto to another whole new level of stupid :/
| dragolf chapter 41 . 7/8/2012
my opinion is to complete this
as you said you wright for yourself so why not finish it? even if the oc character overtakes the story some its still a good read and i would have liked to see the ending but i guess if your not gonna finish it then its fine just another to add to the grave

there's nothing more sad then a child begging for the love of another, a lost child that doesn't know love is heart braking

| dragolf chapter 2 . 7/8/2012
is this a crossover? cause iv never heard of the new characters your introducing if so can you tell me where you got them from? it sounds like an interesting story

This may sound slightly odd, considering that the fic is already well past this chapter, but i honestly with that shade would come out the "winner" in this fic, in fact, i would very much like to one day see an off-shoot by you with that very aspect in mind. I understand that you must be busy and that this is only a hobby, so by no means do I'm think as to tell you what to do with your free time. I mean this as little more than a suggestion. I very much enjoy stories were the main love interest is pitted between an existing character and an OC. It is just rather uncommon that the OC wins.
Beyond that, simple astounding chapter in a story already well past its expectations.

Hmmm. Reading this "After writing for some time, I understand the need to flesh out the canon characters properly and THEN introduce an OC that doesn't overwhelm the story." is a little disturbing.
There's lots of rules people around here try to tell other people they have to follow. Usually rules relating to OCs and AU stories.
Don't know how many times I've seen "reviews" that start off with "great, another crappy OC story I'm not going to read, they all suck".
They don't all suck. And the author of the OC/AU story has just as much authority to write what they envision and about what characters they want to write about as the original mangaka.
So in this story? The author has just as much right to put her OC's front and center, pushing canon characters to the side and minimizing them as much as she wants, in order to tell the story she wants to tell. And anyone who says otherwise is a jackass.
Me, I'd like to see the rest of this story. There's little I've seen that's wrong with it; it's a damned entertaining story through 40 chapters.
