This story was amazing. I loved how you made him as nervos as his father was at his own wedding. This whole story made me laugh and smile and even mad at Ino's many assumptions. Great job!

Very beautiful and thought provoking!
Not even a mention of the cliche "I love you" to make it all perfectly subtle :)

This was amazing! You legitimately encompassed a wide range of emotions and reactions that can be difficult to write, but you handled it quite well. :) Everyone was so very much in character, particularly Shikamaru and Ino, for which you should be extremely proud. Every time Ino was said to be feeling a certain way, I could feel it right along with her. In all honestly, this story was just as emotional as high-strung Ino because so many times, you're led to think "they're almost together but oh wait, plot twist!" Much appreciated.
I really liked your inclusion of Ino's feelings regarding her friends' growing up and her fear of being left behind. It seemed very characteristic of her. As for Shikamaru, the subtle hints and his ever-present troublesomes made him that much more endearing. You're a great writer who sets a realistic pace and makes some of the best use of dialogue that I have ever seen. The story flowed extremely smoothly and the interactions between all of the characters - especially Shikamaru and Ino - were so true I felt invested in them myself.
During the first few chapters, I had a couple favorite scenes. But as the story progressed, there was just too much to love (overall, though, Shikamaru's speech and their repeated failed conversations really stand out because they were just so very emotion-driven and entertaining). The wit, the style, the conventions, the lovely ShikaIno - you mastered it all. Beautiful story. :)
