Dogs don't sweat. Neither do bugs. But they don't do well in the heat, either, for that exact reason.
Sakura has gotten better at the tunneling thing, among other earth-related tricks. That's good, since the whole cast will be surrounded by sand for the entire chapter.
Right, this isn't the first mission from the anime. This is completely different, meaning you made it up, meaning everything is planned. Meaning there's no way this sentry post won't be attacked in the night.
Wow. For people claiming to be ninjas, the boys here are astonishingly predictable...even Kakashi. I'm reminded of a World of Warcraft parody which you might recognize: "LEEROY...JENKINS!" Even if Sasuke was already the strongest ninja ever (not yet, but someday), he wouldn't be able to beat all the bandits in time to save everyone in the caravan with just his taijutsu. Good thing Sakura's the SMART teammate.
Sakura "Diglett" Haruno used Explosion!
It's probably better to build up Hinata's tolerance for gory massacres all at once; it's not a pretty job, but ninjas have to do it. At least the Byakugan is an excellent justification for how Hinata could see the whole skirmish at once.
It seems Sakura could not keep her promise; so the two-pronged attack was actually a three-pronged attack, with the goal of getting Hinata alone?
Ninjas have to read the hidden meanings within the hidden meanings. This scenario was a very good example of that concept. And honestly, it's about time Sakura messed up her analysis. Between always being right and putting Sasuke at least three places down her priorities, Sakura hasn't seemed much like Sakura. Most of it is justified by the spy thing, but Sakura does not prioritize ANYTHING over trying to get into Sasuke Uchiha's pants. Never in a million years.

There's one word you have spelled wrong every single time up to this point: "exercise". It wouldn't be very hard to ignore this spelling error normally, but exercise is a major part of everything a ninja-in-training does, so the error reappears often.
At least you used the same incorrect spelling every time, which makes it easy to tell what you meant to say. However, the spelling you used, "exorcize", is another word; it means to send a demon back to where it came from, which is something that may also happen around Naruto.
Aside from creating confusion about the meaning of the sentence, this type of spelling error can't be caught by your text editor's spelling checker. It's not a misspelled word or and example of bad grammar; it's just a different word than you meant to use. A computer can't make judgements on what you want to do, only on what you did. Please be careful with editing.

I had a memory of Pokemon: the Third Movie, or more specifically the third Pikachu Movie that came with it: "Sakura doesn't want Naruto to get hurt. She's the SMART teammate."
Sasuke and Naruto are both idiots, especially at this early point in the anime, before they all get first-hand experience of what happens to idiots who try to be ninjas.
However, since in she has a sword of Damocles hanging over her head in this AU, Sakura has been forced to mature faster than them. Given the constant effort to avoid being noticed, Sakura couldn't just stay ditzy for Sasuke, so her personality in general would definitely end up very different by the time she joins Team Seven.
It might bug Inner Sakura that she's generally more effective, if not stronger, than Sasuke, which would make her Sasuke's rival rather than his love interest. Of course, he'll probably quickly overtake her with his utterly gamebreaking Sharingan. That eye is just cheating.
Still, Sakura clearly has what it takes to be a ninja. On a team with the Nine-Tails and a Sharingan user, Sakura will need every little scrap of advantage and cunning she can grasp in order to keep up without those exclusive perks, and being smart enough to pass Kakashi's test by actually figuring it out is a good start. Sakura Haruno: The Smartest Ninja!

Keep it up, Sakura! Stay determined! You can get better, just look at how much you accomplished on your very first day with that scroll!
I wanna cheer for her.

Sakura just instantly jumped into hatred and fear of Naruto due to the Kyuubi, though it's perfectly undertandable.
Still, that instinctive denial that Naruto and even the Kyuubi could be people, too - and if they are, then they were heavily abused by everyone around them - is what guarantees the failure of Jinchuriki to prevent their sealed demons from destroying their homes. Except Naruto, who is truly one-of-a-kind in his relentless optimism.
One of the perks of being the most hated person in the world is that it doesn't take much for every single day to qualify as the best day ever. Naruto can find silver linings under every piece of trash.
Sakura needs to catch up in that regard; she has more than her share of troubles too, and if she can't find any more reasons to survive the pickle she's in, then she simply won't.

Whoa, I was brought here from TV Tropes, and I am not disappointed in the slightest, even though I'm not usually into Naruto stuff. The concept is interesting, your grammar and spelling is perfect, and on top of that, even this chapter is huge! And there are still 25 chapters left to read right now; I could be at this for a while! Rest assured that I added this to my favorites, and I'll continue to review as I read.

this chapter hurts my soul. being my second reading and knowing what's coming i just want to say that- that i'm deeply offended by you *runs away crying*

Being this is one of the best stories I've read on this site, and one that shows a unique concept for Sakura, I must ask, will you continue with this story? I worry that I have a found another wonderful, spellbinding tale that has been abandoned. Wishing you the best. Cheers.

Which teacher with silver hair?
| earfluffy chapter 20 . 5/30/2016
Yeah, that's what I thought. I really don't know what she thought was going to happen to her, and I'd have been disappointed in you if it had been all sunshine and roses like Sakura was expecting for some reason.
