Oh. My. Gawsh. YOU'RE KIDDING ME, RIGHT? HE DID NOT JUST - NO. WHY? IT WAS SO GOOD. I think I even shed a tear. Yes, you're just that good. YOU SHOULD ACTUALLY MAKE A PREQUEL. Sorry, that was just the fangirl inside of me. It was actually amazing. Bravo! I don't think anyone could make me dislike Deidara so much in a oneshot. Great job! It was FANTASTIC!

Oh my god, this is so sad. I love Hinata and Itachi's relationship together, but, oh man, I wish they had a happy ending. This is beautiful though. There's so much emotion between these two quiet, idealistic people.

Because of Itachi's implied death at the end, as well as the epilogue of Hinata's (grief?) acceptance, suddenly the entire fic was cast in doubt over whether or not all the scenes were chronological from the start or if they seamlessly transitioned between past and present. It's a very cool and interesting sensation. It made me want to reread the fic to figure it out. It also made me want to reread because now with the ending in mind I'd reread it with new eyes; it's like rediscovering the fic all over again.
First time I saw a non-Massacre fic without a Sakura pairing, but Itachi's canon mentality of self-sacrifice blended with the subtleties and nuances of ItachiHinata's quiet existence pleased me. The only thing I had a hard time bending my head around is that Itachi fell in love with a twelve-thirteen year old genin Hinata (but than again Itachi doesn't fall in love with conventional virtues). Also, I was taken aback by Itachi's blunt admittance of love in his own head because the effect of that declaration was made even stronger by Itachi's previous, physical, very subtle ways of showing appreciation for Hinata: the scent he falls asleep to, random and rather inopportune food cravings, fixation of adhesive labels. Very subtly done in that you let the reader come to conclusions that don't need to be spelled out by the author, which is why I was so surprised at Itachi's free use of the word love, albeit in his own head.

Wow, this is... what an ending! I totally didn't see it coming. So powerful- depressing but absolutlely mesmerising! Great fic.

Oh, wow. This is the first ItaHina I've ever read (although I am SUCH a pairing whore, especially with Itachi XD) and it really blew me away. I love the quietness of it and how you were able to convey the depth of their relationship together by honestly *showing* it to us rather than telling us.
And the end - *sob*.

First let me say that I am not in a place where I can log in at the moment, so I apologize in advance. You'll have to go looking for me if you want to respond.
Second. I've read some of your oneshots before, and I can't believe I haven't reviewed before. This was very well-written; it was more a book of random moments in their marriage yet formed a cohesive story. All the part "stuck" together, if you get my meaning; not everyone can manage that. And the emotions were so very believable, which is more than can be said for most romance oneshots written these days. Your characterizations of Itachi and Hinata were both excellent.

This is so unbearably sad, my heart broke :( thank you for writing this.

It was beautiful.
The ending nearly broke my heart, but it made the whole story even deeper.
It's a piece of writing worth remembering, that's for sure.
I liked how you managed to blend together actual moments from the manga (like encounter with Haku or Chuunin Exam) with your fiction.
And I love your creation of Itachi.
Thank you for the story!

eeek, T_T ITACHI! I thought it was very well written
| Dee chapter 1 . 7/4/2010
Aw, man.. That was beautiful. Perfection. I teared up and dripped on my laptop a little. This has converted me to ItaHina, that's how damn good it is.
I just love the chemistry between them, and how you've portrayed their relationship - it doesn't feel forced at ALL. Damn, I can't say how much I love this. Keep it up!

Tragic, and beautiful...
...Beautifully tragic. Best one-shot I've ever read, incredibly in-depth for a one-shot aswell. Very nice job.
| fhclause chapter 1 . 5/18/2010
It kinda heartbreaking, yet beautiful... It's realistic, for ninjas always have the chance to die anytime...
Just sad that Itachi died...
