That was a very beautiful (and believable! and very IC) way to end:) It's always nice to read fics when Sasuke learns how to overcome being a robot and becomes human:)
| wingedmercury chapter 8 . 11/25/2011
That was well done; not too dramatic, not too mushy, just right:)
| wingedmercury chapter 7 . 11/25/2011
Lol, Sakura was a total dork:) I loved the awkward silence, oh lord!
| wingedmercury chapter 6 . 11/25/2011
lol, Sasu is so pathetic without Saku:)
| wingedmercury chapter 5 . 11/25/2011
I like how Temari picks up on the subtlety of Sakura's emotions; well played. Not over the top there, but just enough.
| wingedmercury chapter 4 . 11/25/2011
Ah, Sasu grows up. About time!
| wingedmercury chapter 3 . 11/25/2011
I like the descriptions here, how Sasuke is literally an illness she has to get through.
| wingedmercury chapter 2 . 11/25/2011
Yeah Sakura! Leave that punk!
I liked how you used Sasuke saying "Sakura" to transition between Sakura's thoughts and Sasuke actually standing there; it had a nice flow:)

I love your writing style best when it's present tense; I fall right into the story.
I love how Sasuke called off every single flight to Suna; just his luck, I'll wager she took the greyhound :X I don't even know what he's done, but Sasuke...you done bad.

I'm back. :DD And with sugar in my system! Oh, joys!
I have a perfectly good excuse as to why I am just now reviewing. Three words: Final Fantasy XIII. I'd like to see how Kakashi would beat that. XD (PS: Yes, it would be fun to have a contest with him. Though I'd probably not get an excuse out fast enough before I faint in the presence of the one-eyed man )
So I guess this will count as both a review and a reply to the previous one? xD I have a feeling this will be considerably longer than most reviews I've ever typed up. ._.
Imagine my surprise hearing that (and don't worry; my lips are sealed. ;P ). In my opinion, the story is actually pretty well-off for someone who's writing it as they go. But I understand. Most of my experimental stories are like that. None of them ever reached the ending, because I eventually went brain-dead, hehe. ' And since I never do manage to finish my stories (I often have large gaps of 'durr' when it came to my own writing), I just review. But really, it's a bad habit to fall into-not filling in the gap between the beginning and end. I mean, I've always viewed the in-between events to be the most important, because it contains the climax of the story (then again, who am I to talk, when I've never really finished a story myself? -_-" -emo corner- ). Anyway, my own habits aside, you seem to be doing pretty well for your part. Just thought I should warn you, though. ' Oh, and Kubby lived a very happy life. I'm actually proud he managed to live three years. :)
Ack, you wouldn't believe how many stories I've come across that have those sorts of plotlines! Then there are the stories where it's set in a high school, Sasuke's a player, and Sakura's the school nerd. That's another common one I find. Now, they're all not that bad, but I just get tired of reading the same thing over and over sometimes. I mean, to think, I would have thought a lot of people have had the idea of putting Sasuke into Sakura's shoes for a change. I'm glad you're one of those people who managed to do just that.
Could have read this earlier, lol. Just today (or yesterday; depends on how you look at it I guess), I stayed up until 4 AM trying to beat Orphan in FFXIII. xD I honestly have an obsessive problem. " Anyway, that aside, I can definitely see the difference that Sasuke's character took from the beginning of the story. I mean, you can clearly see the contrast from the first and last chapter. By the way, loved what you did there, returning to the coffee shop with a much more different outcome.
I also love how you've actually shown weakness in Sasuke. With that weakness, in this case, feeling desperately lost without a loved one (funny; that works in the manga, too), I feel it's a sign that he's actually grown to become a remnant of human for once. And my favourite part had to be, "several small eternities." It just hit me deep in the gut how strong those words were. Reading some of your other reviews, apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks so. :)
And I can totally see what you meant about Sasuke and Sakura individually recreate their own character. What you said makes sense. I guess they both kind of learned something from each other, then?
I have to wrap this up now; brunch is ready to be eaten and father gets very testy when everyone isn't downstairs ready to So beautifully done, General. Thanks for the great read. :)
