That was a neat little twist to the story. Well written. I like how the game of Shogi changed into a game of words, etc.

I'm surprised you don't have more reviews than this. I'll just have to add another one to your collection.

Please write a second part to this. This is my absolute favorite pairing but it's so rare. Most of the Asuma/Shikamaru fics are very short and/or very depressing. I liked your story very much and I especially liked your Shikamaru. He is a difficult character to write but you got him very well. Most people don't. And I liked the pace and tone of your writing, too.

So, please,continue this, if you can. Maybe something with a happy end (if I may be so bold)? This pairing sure deserves it.

Nice story, I like how it ended up as just one big dream, and how we don't get to see Asuma's reaction. Also, now we know how old Shikamaru and Naruto are in 'There's a light'!

I have to ask: How is this a prequel? I mean, I don't see anything related to the story, not even NarutoxShikamaru. Unless in the future of 'There's a light' Asuma will start pining for Shikamaru, in which case I can' wait!
