Wow, more angst between Sasuke and Sakura. But as they say the more you hate the more you love.
Anyway, I like the conflict. It's still the Land of Iron murder attempt. Heh. It's very characteristic of Sakura to feel guilty about that and hide from him.
Though what I loved the most in this fic was Sasuke's reason for returning :) It was quite sweet.
Btw, I'm pleased to see this fic of yours. I loved your one shots :)

You're not one to disappoint on purpose.

Hey, what the heck do you mean, your palms are sweating? It was super-so descriptive, it really painted a picture in my head. Can you make Sasuke take a shower in every chapter?
Did you rewrite the whole first chapter? Or add a chapter on the front? I thought it was great before, too. Hehee, you did awesome here, SU, I'm still dying to see the rest and you KNOW it, lol.
Thanks for the story,

Refreshing story! Awaiting to read more and more!

Great start! I'm hooked-I can't wait to see what happens next between Sasuke and Sakura xD

OH MY GOD! IT'S HERE! IT'S HERE AND I CAN FINALLY STOP GOING INSANE WAITING TO FIND OUT WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN AFTER CHAPTER TWO.
I actually love you right now. Can you tell?
Heehee, okay time to be serious (I'm still squealing. Cannot be helped). I love this C! I love your use of language and imagery; "The last rays of the setting sun were slipping below the horizon " and "swirling curls of steam", to name a few - oh you make me so jealous with your writing! I love the sly, subtle humour that lingers between the lines - in Sakura's interaction with Ino, Shizune and Tsunade, with Naruto and Sasuke being competitive as usual. The characterisation is spot on! All of them behave exactly as I imagine - the dialogue is so naturally and effortlessly done!
And your Sasuke...CAN I JUST MARRY HIM PLEASE? I have a fatal weakness for tortured souls and my gosh - there are a whole bucket load of issues here. I love how he and Sakura are so similar here, while being so very out of sync - they both hold themselves accountable for what happened in the Land of Iron. They each feel like they have betrayed the other one and destroyed their bond with their own actions. There is so much misunderstanding and shouldering of blame here! I just want them to talk and straighten things out! So deliciously frustrating, C! This is perfect. Perfect. And I do not know how much longer I can stay coherent.
WHEN ARE YOU UPDATING? This is going to drive me mad, knowing it's all written out already. You want to send me chapter 3 yes? I WILL STILL LOYALLY REVIEW EVERY CHAPTER WHEN YOU POST THEM I PROMISE.
Just kidding. Sort of.
Adding to favourites because I love you and the story and I am just so happy to see that now everyone else can get an opportunity to read it too.
Oh. MUST CATCH UP WITH THOUGHTS ON THE MANGA. YES.

The first chapter is wonderful! I am literally falling in love with this story - mostly because of how you portrayed Sasuke and Sakura.
The way you portray their feelings is just wonderful! I am more than amazed. I like the fact that you are equally paying attention to them both and your way of establishing a connection for their current behavior through one simple word 'coward' just gripped me. Even if they were thinking of the entire situation in a different way, they both in the end consider themselves cowards. I never knew that one word can say so much about someones feelings, but you obviously showed me that it's possible. I think that it's a wonderful way of explaining their situation.
I also loved the fact that Sasuke's reason for staying home is to protect Sakura. You really managed to surprise me with the 'at least I owe her that much' line, but in a very pleasant way. Reading that just melted my heart! :) Oh, and his reaction to the pink blur and all those feelings that flew through him at the moment... I have to praise you for that wonderful description! I think that these small little things make you a wonderful author.
I love that you are making the interactions of the members of Team Seven progress with a steady pace. It makes everything even more realistic. I also love Naruto's role in this chapter! I mean, the way he is the one that stands in the middle of things and is the one that struggles most to make things work is definitely something he would do. I feel like I can see an image of him holding Sakura and Sasuke's hands tightly and tries desperately to bring them closer, exactly as if he is the medium that doesn't let them drift even more apart. I don't know if this makes any sense to you, but I wanted to share my thoughts with you. :)
Now, I will quote you (I just can't help it)...
'Why was his life becoming nothing more than a blur?
As he slid into bed, pulling the covers high over his head like a cocoon, Sasuke wondered numbly if this was how he'd die—just fading away little by little.'
I can't even find the right words to say about this. I just know that it speaks so much about everything that has happened in Sasuke's life. I see so much feeling in this little paragraph and that is exactly what made me quote you. I had to tell you that I love it!
The flow of the story is just perfect. I love the development of the happenings and how there are so many promising scenes that make me anxious about the following chapters. I already have a feeling that you will feed my insatiable brain with so much loveliness as the story progresses. The anticipation is already killing me! I hope you'll be updating soon, 'cause I really really love this story and I think that it's growing on me so much that I feel like it's already high in my list of Top 5. :) You did an awesome job writing this! Now, you are definitely not sweating alone. ;)

Nice first chap. Keep it coming please.
| wingedmercury chapter 1 . 11/8/2011
Hiya:) I really, really loved this fic. You have Sakura and Sasuke acting just so IC, which is hard to do, IMHO. And you have such beautiful imagery too; I liked the bit where the buildings were all lit up and twinkling like fireflies.
Anyway, please don't take too long to update- I gatta see what happens next!
*runs to add this fic to my lil' C2!*
| XIIIsirius chapter 1 . 11/8/2011
Loved it! I love Naruto here he's always trying so hard... And Sasuke and Sakura! I hope that training comes up... Anyways I'll be waiting for the next one!
| my destination chapter 1 . 11/8/2011
Since Karin will be in this as well, and Sasuke also tried to kill her, will there be some tension between them like that with Sasuke and Sakura in this story?
| xFlawed Imperfectionx chapter 1 . 11/8/2011
This is awesome! I'm VERY much looking forward to the next chapter. It's SO hard to find good fanfics, so I LOVE it when I find something like this!
| therentyoupay chapter 1 . 11/8/2011
Oh my gosh! I am so excited that you're doing a chapter fic. I love all of your one-shots, and I'm really excited about this concept. I think that you have all the characters down really pat, especially Sakura, and I love how nicely everything has been set up in this chapter. I can't wait for the inevitable tension and drama! :D Any idea how long this might end up being?
| Tiger Priestess chapter 1 . 11/8/2011
I love the angst and I hope that Sasuke and Sakura will be able to forgive/accept each other again. Especially until they get married and have a lot of Uchiha babies!
I don't mind Karin showing up as long as Sasuke doesn't like her.
Great start on your story!
