Someone may have pointed this out already but: "Earth, fire, water and wind: the four elements forming the base for most ninjutsu." You forgot to mention lightning.

Great story! They were always my favorite team and really wish that more focus could have been on them from the start.

"Take your fate and… shove it up your ass!" By far the BEST PART OF THIS CHAPTER! I freaking love Hinata for that one and more then once shouted it at the screen during the Chunin exam Arc.

Yeah Ino! Those battles were super cool.
| TheOnlyWayOut chapter 8 . 3/25/2013
Good breather chapter. It's been pretty heavy and while I still wouldn't call this light, it was a nice break.
The scene between Asuma and Kurenai was adorable. I'm not usually one for romance but the feels! It made me smile.
It's great that Ino is stepping up! I'm kinda bummed it's genjutsu 'cos as you said, all the token-females learn it. I like that there was a justification for it and it really does round out Team 10's abilities. Anyways, I would call Ino or Kurenai girly or weak- they'd kick your butt if they heard that.
What Shikamaru thought to do with his shadow was really cool. I'm glad somebody else thinks he'd be a fire elemental instead of a mysterious sixth shadow element or something. Fire does create shadow...
And Temari's showing up!
On to the next chapter...
| TheOnlyWayOut chapter 7 . 3/25/2013
"His legs were burning in minutes and his ribs became knives of agony sticking in his chest, but he only pushed more speed through to his protesting muscles. But no matter how fast he ran, his shadow stayed right behind him. And clinging to him even tighter than his shadow was his shame, as deep as the ocean and colder than ice. His legs carried him farther, desperately trying to deny the truth he knew in his heart: he couldn't run away from himself."
Beautiful. I have a question, though. How did Ino know that Shikamaru didn't set the alarms?
| TheOnlyWayOut chapter 6 . 3/25/2013
Wow! Just stared reading this story and I haven't been able to put it down. You have a great handle on the characters. I liked especially how you played Asuma and Shikaku. Shikaku's drinking problem in this (while never mentioned in canon) is a clever and fitting addition to the character. And Asuma is just such a lovable Team-Daddy!
Poor Toshiyo! Jeez, could the situation gotten any worse for Team Ten? Anyway, on to the next chapter to find out. Just wanted to say I am loving this fanfic so far.

| 1sunfun chapter 17 . 2/17/2013
Shikamaru and his squad were hidden behind various trees, awaiting the arrival of their pursuers. Hinata was crouching behind the tree closest to Shikamaru, her byakugan activated so she could monitor the incoming attackers. She flashed eight fingers at Orochimaru, and gave the hand signal that meant they were approaching in a straight line
The Orochimaru should also be Shikamaru.

| Tandy Sandman chapter 22 . 1/20/2013
This is probably one of the best Shikamaru centred piece I've read. Thanks so much for sharing, I really enjoyed it!
| LucianUzumaki chapter 9 . 1/1/2013
If you target a shinobi of this village, be prepared to pay the ultimate price. In Konoha, even the shadows can kill. I love that line. I've always been a fan of Shikamaru. He is bad ass to the core and the fact that he doesn't flaunt it makes him that much cooler. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite team 10/shika fics.
