even thuogh the story came out late it's really fine with me n_n you seemed to amaze me evrytime a read your story, and this chapter is a source of a good example/advise on how to understand oneself, not just applicable to shikamaru but also to other people who doesnt really know themselves like me. i dont really know who am i fully, i just based it on how people think i am but denying some fact other people thought of me. and as for shikamaru getting confused of himself made it more realistic i mean yeah he's a genius but even a genius have difficult shit sometimes. and like every other story/chapter you made, you make each in every character act/think natural. well that's what i think of your story i dont know what other people think but for me its perfect! i really like this story and this chapter! no i fell inlove it! it's addicting like cigarettes. good job! i'm still looking forward for the next one!

When I first read the author's note and saw the phrase "psychology references", I automatically thought Freud! And that would've been really weird, but I thought Jung's ideas worked really well in terms of the character development.
I loved his conversation with his shadow-self and how he learned things about his own psyche that he did not necessarily want to know about. It has definitely given his character a depth that most fics lack.
There were a few moments where I felt that the sentence structures could've flowed more smoothly but aside from that it was very good.
Can't wait to see how the whole situation is resolved!

Hellyeah I'm excited! I wonder how you will resolve this mess that Shikamaru is in. It's gonna be EPIC isnt it :)

possibly the most in depth exploration into Shikamaru's character that I've ever read.
You really have his whole pscyhe down to a tee. It was brilliant to read I must say- I study modern political thought and we're just about to move onto Jung who I was dreading after being dragged through Freud but I'm quite looking forward to it now- I may make notes from this chapter :P
the whole "inner" shadow Shikamaru was ingenius- such a good ploy to be able to explore darker facets of his character without roaming into OOC- it was all very fight club- which was definitely a good thing!:D
one more chapter-is the next chapter the last? say it ain't so!
can't wait for your update!

I like the way you handled the ghost encounter, I figure every story needs a personification of a part of the main character's self for introspection. In this case you went with Shikamaru talking to his subconscience, or so I thought at first. I figured you probably confused it and had meant subconscious instead of unconscious, but then he started to explain more into detail what how he works, and I got what you meant, so that was good.
Also I like how you quickly gave him a personality that's very distinct, ultimately he's an OC but he didn't feel out of place at all. Personally, if you consider what he represents, I would have made him more chaotic and frivolous instead of roguish and almost dominant, but I guess that's because he refers to himself as the shadow, so he has to be a little like that.
Only criticism I can think of, is that with this chapter and the previous one, the events in the plot are not moving as fast as they could be.

Wow. Loved the imagery. Loved the way you portrayed Shikamaru and Temari's relationship - the undeniable connection threaded through with this feeling that something really bad is going to happen. Poor Shika, though. Damn Danzou. Anyway, aside from a few typing/spelling mistakes, I thought it was brilliant and I'm looking forward to the remaining two chapters so please continue!
