It's nice to read a time travel Gaara. I've seen everyone time travel at some point - Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, all the Rookie 9 alone or together, Kakashi, even Obito. Gaara is my favorite character so I really wanted to see how he would change the future. Recently I read a fix where Shikamaru and Gaara travel back in doesn't have enough Gaara. Thank you for this fic.

Keep up the good work! I can't wait to read more about what would happen when Gaara reaches Konoha.

Awesome fic, wish there was more but this is a good ending... maybe a sequel?

I want you to know: I ADORE THIS.
You know those times when the reader/viewer solves a problem or figures something out way before a character whose supposed to be crazy smart? This is the first story I've read where that hasn't been the case. You make smart characters legitimately smart. I salute you.

Oh SNAP. Humility was never more well-deserved. Those punks. I like Gaara's casual therapy.
Ooh, early on and things are already shifting...

This fic sure is intense. I like how it is Gaara centric instead of the usual Naruto or Sakura ones. Looking forward to the next chapter.
Thanks for the fic.

It is refreshing to see a Not Sakura or Naruto time travel story and have it done well! Can’t wait to see the next update!

I already reviewed one of the chapters, on one of my previous read, but I just needed to say, Gaara and Chiyo's interaction pulled at my heart strings. Chiyo, so resigned, and Gaara, as strong and accepting as he is, I feel like he's scared.
Now this chapter, gfahfhadjkmah, I just, the relationship between Gaara and his father is so complicated. It was never explored too much in canon, iirc, but with the time travel element it's all so different. I feel bad for Gaara, and I feel bad for his dad.
Still not sure how to feel about Risa! I think I could grow to like her, but so far she hasn't shown any bad sides, and it's hard to trust a character just yet when they've only shown to be very kind and likable civilians. That's never a safe narrative. Who are you, daughter of a baker? Will you protect Gaara? He deserves to be cared about!
Ahhh, well, thank you for writing! I don't know if the story will continue, but as you can see, I've loved every moment of it, even without an ending! Thank you for writing!

"... I remember this because I went through a pyromania stage when we were younger.""
SAME. Every child should go through a healthy stage of pyromania and intense interest in dangerous things.
"... and so many were already gone. Gaara, his mind supplied treacherously."
YEAH I LOVE HIM TOO, BAKI, I KNEW YOU WANTED AN ADORABLE KID LIKE GAARA, he's the best and even though he doesn't need protection I want to protect him forever
gfjjhkhgshgsfjhgsfj GAARA QAQ
AND THEN hfDShahjgadjh (btw the two older kids just PANICKING over a dead body while Baki is just Done With It All asking them what the fuck is up? The Funniest Thing Ever)
AND THEN GAARA (his clone at least) JUST, GFAHFDAH I am so beyond myself, I am having so many emotions and they're All Over The Place.
