i don't even know how to begin this review.
this is one of the most beautiful, heartbreaking, enlightening, thoughtful things i've ever read - fanfiction and "real" fiction included. i found myself crying - sobbing more specifically - to this story at 2am and i wasn't the least bit shamed of this fact. i try to say these words out loud but i just can't describe the emotions you made me feel through out this story.
this was brilliant and beautiful and i thank you infinitely for such an amazing piece.

Wow okay I'm listening to "Magic of a Smile" and boy does it feel fitting
This was an amazing story. A story of becoming human again, and something true. Wow. I can't. This is beautiful. It made me laugh, it made me smile, it made my heart ache. Congratulations, mrie. You gave us a story we'll never forget.

I have to tell you, I have read this fic about 3 or 4 times now, (and I never reviewed, sorry! although it is in my favs) and it just amazes me how it still moves me everytime!
It's the most beautiful, sad, bittersweet, breathtaking love story I ever read.
I think it amazing how you manage to impart so much emotion in a story and still keep light in a way. Or innocent. I can't really explain it.
And the thing I probably love most about it is that you make Itachi and Sakura so absolutely, completely, unquestionably human!
Whoever told you you couldn't write, that you should stuck to science had to be blind, or jealous or the biggest idiot that ever lived. Because you write beautifully and your style is extremelly refreshing.
Thank you for creating this amazing work!

This was beautiful and amazing. First off, you are SUCH a good writer. I loved the style, the pacing - you gave Sakura such a unique voice. I loved the way she narrated and her perspective, and the interludes with itachi were an unexpected treat. First person is often done terribly, but here you totally nailed it - showed why first person can be so powerful and compelling. I loved how you had their relationship develop, and the bit where Sakura explains their type of love (not lustful or passionate, but so much deeper and soul-mate-esque) was perfect. So so good. I was hooked the whole way through, and very pleasantly surprised that this wasn't a tragedy. Thank you so much for writing. I'm so glad I stumbled across this is someone's favorites, and look forward to reading the companion piece and your other work!

Wow, I love this! Pointless fluff (if I may say so :D). but very well-written, and extremely cute pointless fluff. It didn't make me want to scream, or throw my laptop against the wall either, so that's nice. :P

ALL THESE SADNESS AND PAIN...WHY?! :'(

No,no, don't ever regret referencing poems! As I'm reading this, "this is how the world ends, not with a bang but a whimper" is bouncing around in my head and adding this extra dimension to the story. I'll be honest, it's compounding the sadness- which is brilliant. I know it's been ages since you finished this story, and maybe you'll never see this review, but I think you deserve some confirmation that your references are awesome and appropriate.

I've never read something so beautiful, detailed, and emotional.
I have to bookmark this because it's so perfect.
So wonderfully descriptive and imaginative.

"I've told you that I loved him, and love was never meant to wait on the sidelines. Love was never meant to give up."
This was such a beautiful read. It was surreal. The emotions felt real.
Konoha was misspelled though and the piece was not devoid of mistakes. Nevertheless, it was a great story.

This story just broke me a little, but in a good way. Especially the 'listen' parts. You play emotions and feelings like a fine musician, that much I can tell you, and I absolutely love this story. I'm really glad you fell in love with itasaku, because that gives me hope that you'll write more stories about them and I can barely wait :)
Never stop writing - you are exceptionally good with words! ;)

OMGOSH you had me whimpering and crying like a little girl almost the whole time and I wish and wish this was the sort of ending Itachi had for he most of all the characters on Naruto deserve it
I had an amazing emotional time reading your story. Thank you for sharing it with us
