I absolutely lovelovelove this collection!
Here's just a random idea - I know you've already finished this series, and it will have no impact either way, I just had to get the idea out of my head - naming each chapter after things they are good at in reference to the title e.g. lying, loving, breaking up p1 etc., games p1 etc., chowfeel?
Yeah it was way cooler in my head... XD Love your stuff! xx

I don't know why I have never written a review for your stories but I've been reading them for at least 4 years...
I like your style as an author very much, as well as the personnalities of the characters in your stories, it always feels so real!
Anyway, just thougt I would tell you you write my favourite ShikaTema stories :)

I'm uncomfortable with the concept that the rape was never explicitly talked about between them and that it was just internalized on both sides and then everything was okay by the end... Idk I know it's just a fic and that this was written years ago, but consent is very important I feel like to represent rape in a normalized and romanticized way can be harmful to readers of all ages, especially those who are engaging in sexual behavior for the first time and think this is a good way to start

I'm your 8th grade health teacher
I loved the "not 16 times in a row"
I can't realistically imagine it would feel pleasurable / be able to be done within like even a 3 hour movie bc of the refractory period but I'm into it. It really did reminds me of #yung love

uflasdkfjaslfjasdls this was so cute omfg. I had to leave my computer/body when Shikamaru said "Like a predator?" literally so funny... I love your writing style. Very funny & honest & quick & unexpected. This was a lovely chapter.

I really enjoyed this chapter 11/10. Loving the concept of Temari holding the power, or at least the outwards impression of it. Loving the concept that shikamaru assumes she needs him and then her going and throwing that right back in his face and HIM leaving the bed because he can't handle it. Loved the way it was written, the power dynamics, the content.

I have recently gotten into a shikatema binge and stumbled upon your fic. I find it to be one of the better ones, especially with the build of the sentence structure. Few authors can build long, descriptive sentences and punctuate them with short ones. Its a rare trait that I like in fics. I also enjoy the lack of strict adherence to a timeline. Their is a timeline, you know what happens, but you write what comes to you. Update please, I would very much love to continue reading this fic.

I like it, eventhough sometimes I get annoyed with 'I am' instead of 'I'm'...

I'm not sure if you ever solved your problem here (yes, I'm re-reading... again) but I'm pretty sure that the fic you were looking for is "39 Days" by Mussimm (another one of the many incredible, but unfinished, ShikaTema fics out there)
I'm sorry that I haven't left reviews on all of your chapters (and in your fics 'Mistake' and 'Station X' but I find that I tend to have a hard time with giving quality reviews on one/two shots because it's hard to really delve into the flow of a story line (which is usually my focus in reviews). In addition (especially with ShikaTema fics) I tend to empathize a lot with Temari's character, so the angsty bits tend to hit me a little harder than I'd like to admit and I have to kind of bolster myself emotionally to re-read and really critique the heavier plot lines that you build (which makes me sad, because your writing is SO detailed and beautiful!)
As a general review for your style, I've always admired your ability to build a story with descriptions and introversion, rather than dialogue. I often find myself completely immersed in your scenes (especially in 'Station X' when you developed each scene using different sensory signals)- which as a drawback usually leaves me even more emotionally drained after completing the story!
However, I will most definitely keep reading through your works, and I promise to do my best to review more often! (it also doesn't help when I read stories on my phone... which unfortunately happened with 'Station X').
