"Naruto would later name the rebellious fraction he gathered to fight against Madara the Sakura Battalion (there was babble about trying to preserve the fleetingly beautiful things, but everyone knew who it was for).
Sasuke would never marry."
The last line is SO powerful. It almost leaves you winded.
Thought I love angst, I'm glad this is just a short little bit; it'd be devastating if there was a huge amount of build-up only to have it turn out like this in the end (but then, it'd probably be epic too.) ... thank you for sharing this!

I really liked how all the chapters were different from each other! :D

That was beautifully depressing! Now I've got to find an uplifting story before I let it get to me! ;)

How cyoote. Sasuke never married:) I love the whole narusasusaku friendship love thing going on in this chapter.

The last four words broke my heart. I could only wish that Sasuke would feel something like this for poor Sakura. He's definitely hurt her enough. Someone needs to tie him up and drag him back to Konoha pronto.
Anyway. Beautiful as always. :)

I hope Sasuke just realizes Sakura's worth in the manga.
LOVE UR WORK, as usual.
I hope for more stories!

And you call yourself distracted. XD
This is beautiful, Annie.

Heartbreaking, poignant and absolutely beautiful, this came so close to making me cry! There's just something about the introspective way you wrote this that just makes me feel for the entire Team 7. I loved it so, so much.

I'm dying for snow (it's annoying because Australia doesn't have snow in winter; at least not where I live).
Wow... that totally broke my heart.
and this line... very poignant:
"They had always left her behind. This time, she won't wait."
It's annoying when you die, you don't really know the things that happened after then.
"Sasuke would never marry."
While it can also be said that it was simply because dear prideful Sasuke-kun cannot find a wife befitting him and several more reasons, the fact that he didn't marry because of Sakura and that he didn't want anyone else outweighs everything.

"Because Sai had gotten it so, very wrong; this isn't some stupid half-assed love triangle, there has never been any competition. It will be Naruto and Sasuke, Sasuke and Naruto, theirs a bond so knotted, twisted, frayed but unbreakable that there is no space for a third. She fills the void and bridges the gap, but that is it."
So painfully beautiful and insightful. I am also really intrigued by Sakura's feelings upon her death... I feel like this could be a very realistic mentality in these circumstances, and I think you captured her wonderfully. I also especially loved the very last line.

this is the sort of heartbreaking ending i kind of imagine and dread for the long way home. it is beautifully written and it's always a pleasure to read your work.

nice. I love that beautiful image of the snow falling and creating an early grave for Sakura.
