Foist mantle on someone responsible, then retire.
At least Sasuke has a better chance of not going insane, though. :)

Blazed through this in one day, and all I have to say is: WOW. Your understanding of the characters is brilliant. Makes me truly wish Itachi could have been Hokage truly, and not just a shadow protecting Konoha under a guise of villainy.

Bahahaha! I couldn't help laughing at how Naruto's favorite Jutsu failed. Haha, hilarious. This is a pretty cool story. ;) I'm gonna continue reading now.

Thank you! I greatly enjoy this fic and would be delighted if you would continue writing.
I appreciate the dedication of keeping your characters in character. I have not read nor felt that any character is distinctly out of character for a reason not already given. Furthermore, your ability to keep the characters grounded while writing scenes that might warrent other less talented writers to exagerate skill or power for the sake of hypedbole is astounding. The style of story telling is interesting. Rather than tell the story of Naruto, the character, or of the titular man, Itachi, you tell more about his reign as Hokage. Constantly switching view points, just to point out another factete to Itachi as a person, or of the effect his mere presence induces in the world around him only proves it. Personally, while I generally prefer the standard 1st person take on a piece of fiction, (fan made or not) I am liking this style, as I understand the point of it. Being in Itachi's head all day would be boring, but being in everyone's head is telling the story from a broad base, no longer isolating yourself, allowing you to not only tell the tale better but I assume, as a writer, giving yourself the practice getting into many characters heads, and writing as them rather than only one character.
Thank you again, write more soon!

This story was amazing. Itachi as the Godaime Hokage.. It seems like a wonderful solution, and Itachi is an amazing Hokage, but one can tell that it isn't suited for him. He's just caring out duty, just as he was doing just so in the manga. Itachi's mother's point of view was the most haunting. I've never thought her to be that kind of character. Naruto interactions are exactly how I've imagined it though, and all the chapters, both unepected and not are masterfully written. I really did enjoy this new idea of Itachi carrying out the Hokage's mantle.
