You are truly one of my favorite authors on this site. I’ve read and favorited basically all of your (Naruto) works because no one can have me obsessively reread stories the way you do! You’ve made me laugh out loud with your humor sometimes, you know that? And the way you can incorporate sadness, drama, and action in one story so flawlessly is just mindblowing. Also, I’ve weirdly expanded my music taste because of you as well. Songs I’d never heard before like “One Week” and “Macho Man” are now in permanent rotation since reading your fics. You have great taste! I hope that you’ve continued your writing beyond fanfiction, because it would be a huge loss if your gift wasn’t shared with the world. Thank you so much for the time and effort you’ve spent writing for us. I hope you’re doing well, wherever you are!

I had a great time reading this, apart for the plot, what i liked the most was the conversations, it amazes me how you can make all the characters flow with each other like that. I got sad, i laughed, it was a rollercoaster, and one i really really enjoyed. Ps. And you got a talent for lemons, really, it’s not easy to find story’s well written in all the aspects. Loved it 3

Wow.

Reading this was definitely an experience. And an emotional one at that.

It brought back a lot of feelings, a lot of emotions that I thought I'd mostly buried or forgotten. I too was once in love with my best friend. We never had a friends-with-benefits kind of a relationship (as we were 'never' at any point more than just close friends), but the hurt that Naruto feels over the course of this story at Sasuke's initial disregard for his love really struck a chord with me. That speech Naruto gives Sasuke about his feelings not being 'nothing' right before he breaks things off with him really hurt me to read because it was written so well. And it was written so well because you got the emotions down perfectly. Man, did it hurt being reminded of how that felt through Naruto. And man did the tears subsequently come once I was done being reminded. That's how good you are.

I had the song 'Good Enough' by Evanescence on replay as I read this and it seemed to really add to the reading experience. I thought the feel of the song and the lyrics really match the tone of the fic.

To Tom Vilchez and ppl who might be contemplating commenting hate: I don’t know if you’ll see this, but like, you chose to click into this fic, past the M warning, and past chapters 1-23. Maybe reconsider.

hey xxx, i know it's been years since your fic has finished and i really can't count of how many times i've read it over the years. this is one of the narusasu fics i will always come back to. i just wanted you to know that your fic is so head of time. it perfectly fit taylor swift's illicit affairs. i listened to that song after reading your fic and it tripled the pain the angst. i hope you're doing well right now, you are and will always be a treasure in this fandom. love lost!

Okay. I’m having a lot of feelings about this, and I realise it’s been 10 years since you finished this and you might not even see this comment but I hope you doooo. This fic was just epic. I laughed, I cried, I flat out screamed in some places. Made inhuman fangirl noises — the absolute works. This was a total roller coaster! In the best of ways! The plot was just insanely engaging, and that character development!? Holy shit! Socjxfhiefhbswhq! When I first started reading I was like ‘nooo Naruto stand up for yourself’ and by the end there when he actually did I was speechless because omg did they both grow as people and were so multi-faceted, and yes, Sasuke was a bastard, which we all love, no one can deny that, but I never thought I’d actually see his toxic behaviour being addressed and worked on. Here I was just thinking it was an indulgent plot device and a ‘hello’ at canon Sasuke, but I was amazingly wrong because it was so much more. You did an amazing job. No idea if I’m even making sense at this point since it’s 12.30am here and I don’t know how I even found this fic to begin with. On an important side note, I’m glad Sakura had a realistic redemption arc. I’m glad Naruto and Sasuke got back together in a realistic way too. Like, the amount of hours and effort you put into writing this really shines through. There was one line that I totally LOVED (amongst so many others omg) and that was Naruto saying that he and Sasuke kind of make each other insane and legit. They really do. Their bond is so intense canon-wise, and this story really emulated that.

I have only recently gotten back into the Naruto fandom after soo many years of being in others, but I’ve always held a soft spot for my OTP. After I finished rolling around and screeching about this fic ending (loved the slice of life stuff too btw yessss) I clicked into your profile just to see if you were maybe around still on AO3 or tumblr but no luck. Which is understandable considering it’s been so long. But THEN I clicked into your favourites and holy shit, I did a double take because you’ve got my narusasu fic in your faves. Can I just say… I’m kinda honoured (lol srsly) right now. Your fic has moved me in such a way that I want to print it out like the olden days and put it in a binder because it’s just that flippin good, so to find that you really digged my crappy lil fic too lol is just,,, Crazy. I went through my reviews and you left me a lovely review too, so I hope sincerely that this review to you, 10 years very late, is another thank you. I hope you’re doing well in life, whatever fandom you may be in these days. Thanks again! I’ll stop crazy rambling at you now lol XD;

I've already posted one review, and i still stand by it. But by this one too. The thing is, it felt like he was cheating on Naruto, not on Sakura. And I really hate these kind of stories. They claim to love someone, and they still sleep with other people. When you actually, truly love someone, you can't sleep with others. Not because your body won't let you, but because your heart wouldn't. Maybe it's just the way I feel and I'm completely wrong. But i just can't believe you actually love someone when you're able to so easily sleep with someone else, kiss them, touch them and all that. I mean, I could sorta forgive Sasuke, because he didn't seem to admit his feelings for Naruto not even to himself, but Naruto? He claimed to have loved Sasuke for years, yet just because Sasuke got married, he had to try or actually slept with someone else, instead of trying to move on first? That doesn't sound like love to me at all, if it's so easy to be with someone else, even if it's just sex. So no matter how nice the story was, how sweet it was at the end, every time I think about it, it still hurts and leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. They were both sleeping with other people far too easily when claiming to love each other, Naruto even made Neji fall in love with him and hurt him, just 'cause he slept with him and started dating him way too soon. They just hurt each other... Maybe I'm too sensitive. I don't know. But i can't wrap my brain around loving someone and yet being so easy to kiss, touch and sleep with someone else, be it just sex or not. It was a nice story, but too many scenes still hurt a lot, even with the happy ending. Even now, thinking about it, it still hurts. It was really great, but...it hurts...

Hello. I just finished reading this. And while I totally hated a few things in the beginning, and they hurt my heart a bit, I absolutely adored it. I love Naruto, and all his friends, and I'm slightly obsessed with MM love stories, so I absolutely adored this. I would've loved for Neji to find love too, but I still adored it. While at first I thought it would leave a bitter taste in my mouth and hurt my heart more, I am glad it didn't. It became sweet, and it made cry several times during the story, and shed a few tears of joy at the end. It's my first time here, and this is the first story I'm reading, so I don't yet know what's out here. But I really hope I'll be finding more stories like this. It was sad, but yet happy and so very sweet. I loved it so much.
