I really loved this story, and I actually cried a couple of times reading it... and it's seriously really hard to get me to cry, but this story is so great. You know- or at least I think you do with how well you write it- what it feels like to have a loved one commit suicide, and also what it's like to actually go through depression and how freaking hard it is to get over it. As well as needing to make the final step yourself, whether it's death or a road to happiness. That's what I like so much about this fic. Not only is the writing awesome as heck, but instead of just Sasori saving Deidara from his darkness, you had Deidara save himself. And friends. Even though the two of them loved each other a whole lot, you never forgot to write interactions with friends and made it seem just as important as the rest of the story.
Also, the ending! Ah! That last sentence is perfect. It's final. Some fanfics I read like this kind of leave you hanging at the end, but you made sure to finish and made sure everything was patched up before you did. Thanks for posting this online!

There is something very wrong with you for writing something this sad.
There's something even more wrong with me for having read this far despite said sadness.
Sasori is one of my favorite characters from this series, and I'm quite fond of Deidara too. I want to keep reading, but... I just can't. It hits far too close to home. But I couldn't leave without saying anything, because you clearly have skill as a writer. More than that, though, you clearly have experience with depression, either being depressed or seeing someone else suffer through it. Whichever one it was, I hope it disappears and stays gone. Someone with your talent has a great future ahead of them, and depression of this level is... Well, it's awful.
Anyway, I hope you keep writing. :)

I just wanted to say this story is absolutely beautiful. I love it so much, and you are such an insanely talented author. The way you portray the mentality Deidara and Tobi have on "love" and just how backwards it can be, and how Deidara effects Sasori, who effects Konan, and how Deidara effects Tobi, who effects Zetsu, this pain is just circling around the group. I love "slice of life" meaningful stories, and this is the best one I've ever read. It gets me all teary eyed, and yet I need to read more. It's drawn me in so much, which is why I haven't actually reviewed yet, but figured I should, so I did. I am shouting, "Deidara! Don't you see Sasori's the one that loves you!" (And vise versa) I cannot wait to read the rest, and once I do, that will be my next review.
Thank you so very, very, very much for this wonderful, heartfelt story of love, and friendship, and life.

This is fucking amazing. I apologize for swearing but this is just an amazing story.
The way you write emotions, the connections, the everything. You feel like this is all real. Half the time, I expected you to say that half the things you wrote were quotes from other people. But gosh you're amazing to think and write this story, to not stop writing it, to keep putting out amazing chapters.
Are you an author? If not GO AND TRY! Keep in writing, you have a talent. The final chapters nearly had me in tears especially when I thought sasori had died. I look forward to more of your stories

you have no idea how much this story is helping me. my friend has been suicidal since middle school and i've always tried my best to help her, and reading this...it just...i can't explain it but it gives me ideas and hope for the both of us. I won't ramble about my problems, i just want to say. Thank you.

This fanfiction is just absolutely beautiful! The quotes at the beginning were really deep, especially this one. It made me see suicide in a different light; I'm glad they both survived. In fact, I was almost crying when I thought Sasori chose his mom last chapter. This is AMAZING!

I absolutely loved this story!

This story took away 3 nights from me, cost me some tears, left me tired and sleepless and I abso- fucking -lutely love it. That's all I can day about it. It's amazing, truely one of the best things I ever read..
It's definately worth a fave!

This is such a great story, it really got me thinking. It's so deep...
| This-is-Bob-Brown chapter 17 . 12/19/2012
This story kept me up until 3am... (It was so hard to just... stop reading)
It was really emotional, but not... I can't think of the word... cheesy? Or overly angsty (ok, maybe a little, but I never saw it as something to ruin the great read)
The story was so interesting, it captured me.
Although quite a few people don't, I really like long stories. It just has so much more in them, and they don't miss a thing! Ah, expect the scene where Sasori apologizes to Hidan. I really just can't remember that ever happening. Either you didn't include it (which is quite possible), or I just can't remember readings it (also very possible).
But yes, although I don't have any ideas swallowing my head after reading this, I know that this story will bring me great inspiration.
Thank you for sharing such a beautiful piece of writing with us, and thank you for going through with writing this over such a long period of time.
I wish you luck and inspiration for your future works!

this is the single most depressing fic I've ever read. And I loved it.
Seriously though, I had to stop reading half way through because nearly every chapter made me want to cry and the only reason I didn't stop reading all together was because I was hoping for a happy ending. It took me like 2 months to build up the courage to finish reading it.
But I'm so glad I did finish it! It was definitely worth it :)
Also, the song Never Too Late by three Days Grace reminds me so much of this story.
(Though saying that, I love most of your stories :3 )

For the first 14 chapters I was constantly screaming at my laptop's screen, "SASORI YOU IDIOT. HUG HIM TIGHT AND CONFESS!" and when it said "...I can't leave mother again" (or something similar to that) I started crying...a part of me knew it wasn't gunna end like that but I was heartbroken anyway..Really good job on this!

This is an epic masterpiece!
I loved this story. You had such complex characters and themes. Sasori's internal conflicts were painful to read-I read this story with a clenched fist half the time.
Yay for metaphors and similes! So many writers don't use these. Sometimes I run into stories without even any real imagery. Great job!
Fabulous ending-sweet, but realistic. It's hard to end projects this big-you need to give it the perfect ending to give the reader a sense of closure, to deliver your characters from the storm, but also make it realistic-suicidals don't become contented people overnight. I actually wasn't entirely sure you could do it. Thanks for proving me wrong-this was the perfect was to end it.
The one thing I didn't like was that the story focused entirely on Sasori, Deidara, and Tobi, with the occasional interlude by Konan, Zetsu, or Hidan. Itachi and Kisame hardly made an apearance in this story at all, and Kakuzu and Pein had minor roles. I kept expecting one of them to come by and see Deidara and have one of those deep conversations he has every chapter with Sasori, but it never happened. But I guess you did that on purpose-Sasori, Deidara, and Tobi were the ones with the major internal conflicts. You probably already thought of this, and wrote your story this way for a reason.
I hope to read some more of your stories-This was an incredible show of skill with a pen...er, keyboard.
Keep writing! You're very good at it.
