Bro please come back \3
I reread this every month because it’s so good
Been 8, almost 9 years. This is leaves too strong impression and I love it so much. No one else has ever written a better Sakura Fanfiction. This is so original, so well-plotted, I love how frickin cool Sakura is. The POVS are done super well. And Shiki is an amazing character that is extremely likeable.
Thank you for writing this Fic
| Arjan Hut chapter 5 . 8/28
It's been years since I read this - I truly cannot believe that this is like a remnant of my childhood. Little bits and pieces have stuck with me through the years and when I really think about it I'm surprised at how much this impacted me. I originally hated Sakura as a kid and I stumbled across this story when I was beginning to realize that the issue I had wasn't so much with Sakura as a character but with Kishimoto's writing of female characters. (Although I didn't so obviously see that was the issue, but I did start to get a feel that something else was wrong beyond Sakura.) It was incredibly refreshing and even inspiring to see where you brought Sakura and the journey you set her on. It kinda opened my eyes to that fact that there were no limitations when it came to what you could write a character to do or be (especially a female one). This fic definitely raised the bar out of how I expected fiction to treat female characters as well as how I expected people to respect women in real life. It's warming to see that you're still writing fic and for Sakura. (I'm still in fandom spaces, too!) I will always have so much love and appreciation for this fic. (Literally, I had such a crush on Jun, omg.) I won't lie, I'm sad to see that this likely won't be completed, but I'm grateful that you still have it available. Even if you have no desire to return to it, I would appreciate it dearly if you even just listed bullet points of tidbits and plots that you had planned. Thank you for writing such a story. :)

This fic is insanely fucking good. I hope that it gets updated again, but if not, I've really enjoyed all that's been written.

Hello! I reread your stories constantly but I recently downloaded the app and starting listening to it audio book style (which really makes all the deadpan dialogue and passionate dialogue a wild time since it is said like Google translate and no punctuation is mentioned). when listening audio book style, it also reads all the author notes which has really brought a new dimension to this story. Realizing that just Sakura's missing parents started this is sensational because you are can read it as a nature vs nurture. Either way, I've been reading for years and don't think I've reviewed. I love your character developments because you think of everyone and that you can write multiple POVs since those are amazing!
My favorite part of your writing is that all characters have dimension and you think about how they'd react. There is actual logic! I also can't stand rewatching the series anymore since I can realize how irrational it is for ninja to act like this. For a military based government, it drives me nuts but your writing and thought process let's me enjoy the story without going crazy with secondhand embarrassment.
Thank you for your writing and for existing!
| Hi chapter 22 . 9/12/2022
Adore this fan fiction and always check if its updated
| Pupporce chapter 22 . 8/21/2022
Do you plan on updating this again one day? Its really good compared to other kekkai genkai fics ive read.
| ZanMorgan chapter 22 . 8/9/2022
I hope you're doing great!
I just wanted to tell you that I love the way you write Sakura in your fics - Kill your Heroes is easily one of my favorite fics! I know it's been years since you've update this particular one but I really do love this fic and come back to it every so often. The Haruno clan is especially interesting. While I love the fact the Sakura is the one who doesn't come from a clan or have the blood and/or history to support her (she's truly and completely self-made) there's something I've always enjoyed about fics that give her more of a family/background and when writers explore how growing up in a clan could've changed her character. And giving her not only a clan but a kekkei genkai!
Do you think you'd ever come back to this fic or do something similar?
| Mernom chapter 3 . 7/1/2022
It's probably far too late to ask now, but having Sakura's team meet clan members from other villages at some point would be interesting.
| mandorakat chapter 22 . 5/1/2022
this is really interesting. I hope you continue
| mandorakat chapter 11 . 5/1/2022
I don't like how her weapon is reprimanding her and making her cry like that. what an asshole. weren't they just talking about him holding get back? his emotional manipulation and power over her because he's her only real family and friend and emotional connection is totally f-ed up.

| Nkeonyelu chapter 22 . 4/17/2022
