This last chapter gave me goosebumps. I absolutely adore your writing; you've captured Tenten perfectly, and I love her interactions with her teammates.

...I'm speachless... That was sooooo deeeeep! And man, that was epic!

like i said, lord have mercy on anyone that takes away her boys...
btw, i knew about the sword thing, though i've used it as 'a person wields a sword because all they want is war', though the idea of it being a 'last resort' weapon never escaped me, and someone with Tenten's proficiency it would make sense. you can kill someone with anything, why wield a weapon designed solely to take human life when something else is easier or on hand? kill with a sword when it means it... its a beautiful concept...
have to say though, i like the concept of 'Lady in Red' here then the normal idiom for it... and i can see it, with how things have lined up, if/when Tenten's the last member of Team Gai alive she'll have nothing to hold her back, nothing to keep her in this world, so either she'll go on fighting until she dies or kill herself after her revenge, to create new bonds after would be so painful and tragic... though she'd be one scary shinobi in nothing but red...
heh, this ones so much more 'serious' then your other ones i've read, kinda funny... but some times 'reality' and over-thought is necessary/nice...
does make Tenten that much more awesome...
personally my vote for the 'sudden' shift to white was they she'd be 'unofficially' accepted into the Hyuuga clan XD but hey, i'm all for this as 'another' reason :3
Till next *salute-waves* Sayounara, Toboe!

i really liked this, i mean i read the others and i totally agree with them but this one really sets it home. you don't need chakra, you don't need a big show of skills to kill a human being, its simple, no matter how strong someone is a simply slit in the right spot without their knowledge will let a person bleed out and they die. Tenten really is the most effective killer/assassin in the entire show when you really think about it, she is never unequipped and has perfect accuracy her skill is hitting a target, its PURELY taking life, it is very sad when you think about it and her character.
makes you wonder if that's the real reason all her badassery is off-screen, other then Temari, which was a bad setup to begin with, she hasn't really lost, give the girl a weapon and she knows it practically instantly and she can kill with it with perfect efficiency. sure the guys are 'stronger', that makes them better 'fighters' in a sense, but as ninja their primary job is to kill and be unseen, that's Tenten's job to a T. the fact that they 'solely' use her as 'artillery' from the shadows is just brushes over that fact. people really only pay attention to the 'front row fighters' never really giving the appreciation to the ones that really pull this sh*t off...
the part about her most likely going insane is true, being the 100percent accurate killer, if she sees it that way then yes, yes she is, but how we perceive things can change that, though it could just be lying to yourself. it definitely hits home the reality of their jobs when you 'really' think about it.
i like the last part, her snapping, its a good thing, even if its bad, it means she still cares, she's still human... and lord have mercy on anyone that takes out her 'boys'... 100percent killer, she will do without fail what is necessary to save them, i'm glad you have her like that, not pussy-footing around or getting emotional, just snap and takes down a small army, because she can, she's not weak, she's not the emotional wreak some of the others can be, she's definitely had more experience then the rest if you put it in this light, doesn't make it any 'better' for her, and while i'd love to say she's 'stronger' for it i can't, having to kill and suppressing the morality of it then having that which is most precious almost taken... she walks the finer line then all of them...
i'm glad Team Gai knows it, even if they don't say it, they know it and do what they can to push back the tide...
i'll be checking out the rest, just had to say something, the tragedy and truth in this piece needed it...
till next *salute-waves* Sayounara, Toboe!

That is an interesting thought with regards to swords. Never really thought of them that way. Thoroughly enjoyed this chapter. :)
