Amazing Idea. Amazingly Written.
I liked the way you wrote this confrontation. To be honest this is the sort of thing I've been waiting to hapen in the manga.(Although I doubt It will seeing as were its got to now.)
Your angst is impecible and Can honestly say this is a all time favourite.
Keep up the good work, I can honestly not wait to see what other idea you have.

I loved this! You kept both Naruto and Sakura true to character. And your description was enough to paint a picture in my head but it wasn't cumbersome. Your dialogue was very well done too. I hope that you'll write more stories soon!

this is a really good interpretation of naruto and sakura's relationship. i really can't wait to see what happens when they meet up again in the manga. but somehow i can't see sakura confronting naruto about his feelings for her. but either way i can't wait to see what happens!
your story really does remind me of 181 in the manga. the characters display raw emotion. i think you did a great job and i can't wait to read more of your work.

That was a very well done one shot. I agree with other reviewers, this seems like what would happen in the manga.
Thank you for posting the story, please write more :)

I was waiting for someone to write about the recent events that was Chapter 458. (EPIC CHAPTER for a NaruSaku veteran - aha) Though I have a different envision in mind on what will happen between Sakura and Naruto meeting up, I think your image of it is equally amazing.
Seeing Sakura tackling Naruto with sheer stength numerous of times in the fic at first seemed a little exaggerated, but then again, I think that's probably the only thing Sakura would know how to express herself; with her power because her words have always failed her when it came to talking about feelings. Though I think once would have been sufficient enough to get the point across.
Thanks so much for putting this up to read, it was a joy. :)

I feel bad for Sakura's character because I've always believed she was held back by the author of Naruto (sorry I can't remember how to spell his name). She could have been so much more but for what ever reason she rarely rises to the occasion. So I am not holding my breath that things will get better in the manga although I would like for her and Naruto to work out. But whatever my perceptions are, I liked your story because it's good.
I guess I just like that it's realistic and portrays both Naruto and Sakura as friends who may make not be perfect but are at least trying to be unselfish. Good job.

This may be my first review ever, but you deserve it ;)
Even if I personaly think that Sakura won't actually run for Naruto after her little talk with Sai because it will come out too OOC (or at least I think so, Kishimoto-sama seems to be evolving their relationship pretty slowly), you made it really in character. Maybe the intro was a bit odd (Kakashi and Yamato didn't say a thing, it's like they're actually NOT there), but the talking went smoothly.
I do think Sakura will at least TRY to change that "cursed" promise as well. I'm a NaruSaku fan, but I'll be more than pleased even if she ask so just because they're friends. Naruto deserves someone to think in his own good, and if he can't, I'll love if Sakura takes that role. And you reflected that in your fic amazingly.
458 has been a chapter that opened up a lot of doors, and one of them was NaruSaku being possible in a way that's not just Sakura going just "Oh, Naruto, I just realized that I love you!". And as you shown here, she might not say a word about her feelings, but I'm sure she won't remain the same, either.
I'm not sure if I'm ever making any sense, sorry, but that happends to me when I read something that I really like It was well written, in character and more possible than most of the stories around here. Congrats! And keep the good work ;)

If only Naruto and Sai can catch up to Naruto at this point
