I LOVED this! Oh my god, I want Temari to beat up Aya and Koto so bad. Like, really bad. Hehe, this story is bringing out my violent side. :) I truly loved the interaction between Gaara and Kankuro. It was heartwarming and totally aww-worthy. 10 out of 10!

Omg that was adorable! *gives basket of cookies* It was so beatiful how throughout the story, you managed to stay with the original topic, but also get the message across.
Oh, also, I think u should write a sequel! I know you're probably like "stupid demanding wolfe13. Who does she think she is?" and I sowwy bout that. But you have such a good set up here! I'd like to see how the guys worked together and found love.
Or you could not write sequel. You're the author, so it's all up to you!

I suppose there are no words to describe how much I love your Sand siblings fics, especially how are you portraying Kankurou. I liked him a bit in the manga and anime, but I began to like him much more after reading your fanfics. He's just wonderful older brother to me now, just close to perfection. As for the story, I wish you wrote much more of those. You're really amazing writer.

This story is really awesome. I don't know if you like incest, but I really like the idea of Gaara and Kankuro being together. Great work,

Haha... this chapter was so cute!
| InoShikaChou chapter 6 . 7/5/2011
I really enjoyed the conversation between the brothers at the end. Gaara's come a long way in this story. I'm glad he was able to trust and depend on his siblings instead of going to Naruto for help even when they were both at the dance.
It was nice to get more background on Koto also. It emphasizes how the characters have a life outside of what we see in the anime and manga and that Gaara isn't the only guy in Suna capable to getting a girlfriend. But what exactly happened between her and Kankuro that was so painful? And what will Temari actually do to her when she finds out? Also, if the story had continued who would Gaara have ended up with, Aya or Kaori?
Anyway, I loved this fan fic and how Kankuro and Gaara got a lot closer. Sorry, I didn't review earlier. Things have just been really busy. But it's always great to find a good story about these two characters and their relationship which is far too often overlooked.
| Mystical Sand chapter 6 . 6/27/2011
I love how Kankuro bonded with his brother by teaching him how to dance. It had a sweet family feel to it, and it's something Naruto couldn't have helped Gaara with. They seem to have made quite a bit of progress with Gaara's discomfort with physical contact too, especially judging by the last several paragraphs. It was nice to see how much Gaara has come to adore Kankuro and how much he wants him in his life.
Kankuro's wish to protect his siblings just feels right for his character too. It's something that has always been there, even at the very beginning of the series. At least Gaara appreciates it now, and Temari may not mind under the right circumstances.
I also like how you wrote the brothers' relationship with Temari and the subtle differences in how she said "ototo." A lot of writers make her closer to or more protective of Gaara than of Kankuro, but it makes more sense this way. She grew up with Kankuro and even now seems to have a stronger bond with him. I can only imagine what she'll do to Koto when she finds out what happened.
Another thing I really liked was how even though Naruto was at the dance too, his interaction with Gaara (or Kankuro as Gaara) was very minimal. It was nice to see him appreciate his siblings and rely on them more. Kankuro's talents as a performer really came through too when he was able to fool so many people who know his brother, someone who has a much different personality and mannerisms. This was a very creative use of his abilities.
I really enjoyed this story and am glad you finished it. It had some really wonderful moments between the brothers.

this was so sweet :) the most beautifully written gaara fic ive read in a long time. i adore your portrayal of gaara, innocent and confused, i see him that way in the series too.
and your kankuro was gorgeous! his brotherly-ness and affectionate side was a joy to read, and you managed to keep him totally in character despite the sort of ooc-ness of the fic... your writing is superb :)
i just loved this fic to pieces, it was sweet, funny and entirely squee-worthy xD

Kankuro and Gaara's conversation at the end was wonderful, especially how Gaara is starting to show affection for his brother. The image of him kissing Kankuro on the forehead and saying he's precious to him was so sweet. I love how they grew closer after all of this.
| anthropomorphychan chapter 6 . 6/13/2011
I truly enjoyed how you portrayed their family dynamics and how you developed the relationship between the siblings. I think it's very sweet and very thoughtful. I'm glad to have read your fic. It's a wonderful heart warming story. You did a great job. :D

You never fail to amaze me.
| MidniteCurse4Eternity chapter 6 . 6/9/2011
I love this.
The ending was really nice.
Poor Gaara. She stole a kiss form him. Kankuro should have confronted her. It would have been funny to read.
I loved their talk at the end.
And thank you for updating.
I really enjoyed reading this.

So...who is Daisuke?

I love this chapter.
Sooo cute and funny.
I loved how Tsunade and Gaara made jabs at each other. It made me laugh. Especially the part where Gaara mentioned the Ninja Death match. Oh Gaara. (:
hahahhahh "The Mob"
Poor Gaara. At least he can dance now.
I like Hitomi. She's really interesting. And Kankuro got to dance with her.
Ohh, that Aya girl. I wonder what's going to happen.
And thanks for updating. (:
| InoShikaChou chapter 5 . 5/29/2011
Tsunade was quite gracious. I'm glad Kankuro's lessons paid off, and Gaara was able to make it through that dance. I'm really curious able Koto. What happened between her and Kankuro? How long were they together, and when did they break up? What do Temari and Gaara know about their relationship? Did Temari do anything to her once she found out how she hurt her little brother? Also, will Gaara take a romantic interest in either Aya or Kaori? I can't wait to see what will happen.
