This wss a very vonfusing story, but it was good. I got like 90% of it.

Fabulous story! Over the years and considering the amount of screentime Shikamaru gets, it's hard to find something marginally original but you've done it :D
I especially liked how you emphasized the shadows because isn't that exactly what the Nara clan is known for? The idea of "walking" through your shadow to overcome yourself was interesting in and of itself, but the fact that Shikamaru's worst enemy was indeed Shikamaru himself made it relatable in other terms. Kinda like finding yourself without the cliched-ness, you know?
I definitely did not expect Aunt Sadako's story but at the same time, it wasn't inherently shocking, which means you did a great job of writing it. One thing I noticed was that Shikamaru was particularly short-tempered and talkative; while that doesn't come as much of a shock considering his upset shadow and the circumstances, it was just a bit unsettling for this change of character. You expect Shikamaru to be eternally composed but I guess that while this was written in third person, it also focused mainly on Shikamaru so it was likely just the fact that it was his thoughts plus his words that made him seem loquacious.
Overall, great job! You tied in other important characters from Shikamaru's life smoothly and acknowledged his relationships and shadow very neatly. :)

What an awesome story! Great read. I loved how you brought it to its conclusion. I didn't see the ending about Aunt Sadako coming - that was really sweet.

Nice ending. I like the big reveal about Sadoko, and the bit with the kittens gave things a lighter note.

Great story, really fits into your Slow Burn arc but weaves it's own thread.

I don't know how to handle or describe the feelings I got when I realized that this was the last chapter for this story, except that it was beautiful. The ending was sweet and satisfying too. 333

Oh, Shikamaru...denial is not just a river in Egypt. ;)
I am, as always, in love with your characterization.

Really cool development of Shikamaru's character. I anticipated the voice being Shika's subconscious, but not the shadow outliving the person. Also, Aunt Sadako seems suspicious to me. Could she possibly be a shadow herself? Interesting, really really good!

Oh my gah! It's almost finished. o3O
This has been quite a successful and ultimately beautiful read
into self-discovery and realization. The way you conveyed everything was just simply amazing.
Thank you for this fic.

Huh. That was an interesting realization scene. Not the usual Massive Battle for Dominance, but a game of words... interesting.
