Really good team 10 story, keep it up!
| Gulanticus chapter 8 . 6/20/2011
Nice to see ya spending some time with Ino. And interesting use of the Shadow and Katon Jutsu. I'm looking forward to the exams; to see if you will have Shikamaru and Temari fight

Great build up to the big event, really enjoying this story so far.

I would have added 'Humility' to the title of this chapter as well. It's 4:24 in the morning, so forgive me for being a little loopy. I'm thinking that Shikamaru's 'guilt' could have been scretched a bit more, but even thinking about it now, I would eventually have to agree that, at their stage of alarm staging, seasoned shinobi would have been able to avoid it...or if not would have only delayed them a moment. I'm not sure if you are going to make Shikamaru confess that he fell asleep or if you will let the matter go, now that each has seemingly made a vow to be better. I was about to write something in the vein of 'with great powers comes great responsibility', but as I mentioned, I'm quite tired so I hope you are familiar with Peter Parker and how his uncled died, thus leading him to be Spiderman the crimefighter rather than the wrestler.
Thank you for sharing, and quickly I might add, and I look forward to your next chapter.

Ouch, cliffie... Great chapter, though! I was so happy when Shikamaru managed to split his shadow I hope the next update comes soon, cliffhangers are so cruel :P

Thank you for posting so quickly! Your plan for Shikamaru was predictable in a sense but that's ok. The way you wrote it, gave enough shock, that I expected Shikamaru to be ripped in two in the next chapter. Shika is my favorite, yet I'm looking forward to how Choji deals with his first kill. You left enough foreshadowing in the previous chapters for the reader to know that he does want to kill, but now that he has, I'm waiting to see what his psychy will be like. If I have to make a critique, it would be about the way you are writting Ino. You have given the reader more about Choji than any other character, but Ino is the least of the four you develop her more or keep her in the background since you have now open the way to develop Shikamaru?

Wow... This is so good. I love the way, your story matches the manga, and how you can actually keep all the characters in place. You don't make them OOC, but they stick with their peronality. Shikamaru is my fave, so I'm glad you made a story about him an d his teammates. I'll also give you credit for the way you write, you know how to use the words and draw the reader into the story.
I can't wait for the next chapter!

Thank you for sharing this chapter. I have always been fond of Choji's gentlessness. When I first read the description, I thought that Shikamaru was going to be the focus. I'm glad that I am wrong on that count. I do not have much or any in way of constructive critism. I hope that you continue writing in spite of my lack of offerring.

I LOVE THIS! :)
| Gulanticus chapter 3 . 6/7/2011
Hmmm, I will be watching this story with great interest.
| elektricstorm chapter 2 . 6/4/2011
I'm really liking this so far! :D I hope the 'thing that makes Shikamaru try harder' hasn't happened yet, though, otherwise it'll mean i missed it XD
| Marian Nara chapter 2 . 6/1/2011
I really like your fic, and I know but I hope to update soon
Part of the review was very interesting and I liked
when speaking with Shikaku Shikamaru
I no longer know what happens if you update soon
Until then :D

I love this! Your writing is excellent - very smooth and a pleasure to read. You really understand the characters, too; you've done a wonderful job with developing them. The story and the characters fit nicely with Naruto canon but at the same time you are adding details that we haven't seen before, making it fresh and new. Shikamaru is a favorite of mine, along with Team 10 (and their dads), so I'm really happy with all the lovely details about them you share with us in this tale.
I look forward to more whenever you are able to add to the story!
