| Poodie chapter 1 . 6/29/2017
This One-shot spills out everything. From the first paragraph, I knew, I just KNEW, you were going to portray this beautifully. I believe, with every fibre of my body, that this is exactly what Itachi was thinking. You managed to input all the emotions; the fear, anxiety, saddness EVERYTHING!
I was so impressed and amazed and completely captivated by this. For some reason -one that also happens to be unknown to me- I always either search for, or just instantly read one-shots that are like this. No lie. I literally feel the need to cry, and you, my friend, have made me cry. I felt it. It bubbled and hurt in my chest, because, in reality, Itachi's back story is one of THE SADDEST backstories ever! To be honest, my order is;
If you think about it, almost every (Note: I said ALMOST) character in Naruto has a sad backstory. But Itachi trumps them. And you, have just portrayed that in the most real, and in depth way I have ever read. And I love it!
Words honestly can't express how I feel about this. Really, they can't. So I rather stop rambling and wasting time and just leave with this; This is perfect. I love it. It is now on my favorites list. Thank you! :')
P.s I feel in love with the Title the moment I saw it!

Beautiful story...you potrayed him well... Itachi lived a horrible life, he had to go through so much pain and till the end he was the hero, not only for Sasuke but for entire konoha! Thanks for this amazing one shot!

This was devastatingly heartfelt. If my head wasn't hurting so badly and my eyes weren't so dry, I'd be crying. And, no, I'm not just saying that. I can be very emotional when it comes to Itachi, though I'm not altogether sure why. He's just such a... purely good character, even when he's so very good at acting bad. Anyways, what you've wrote, well, I don't know if it's what he really thought, but I can say for damn sure that it felt like it might be. I hope you're writing more Itachi stuff, but that's just because I'm a huge fan of his. Though, he probably wouldn't like that, huh?

Wow, that was amazing...I always felt for Itachi, even when I was about nine years old, sitting with my brother in front of the TV which was unlike me, he happened to be watching the episode where Itachi returned to Konoha. Coincidentally, the second and only other time I was able to sit and watch an episode at that age was the episode where Sasuke left Konoha. You could just tell there was so much more to their story than anyone ever knew, it really established my desire to delve into the story on my own a few years later. I think this one-shot shows us some of that...always felt deeply for the brothers, their story breaks my heart sometimes.
Absolutely fantastic. It's hard to be, you know, enthusiastic about it given the material, but I loved it just the same. This was a very touching and emotional read. Have a good one!

omg T_T i cried. OH THE FEELS
| Ephemeral Blossoms chapter 1 . 10/4/2012
I find this so incredibly sad. Considering how little we knew about Itachi at this point, it's nice to see what he may have been thinking about as he was dying.
| A chapter 1 . 7/12/2012
I... I don't know what to say. I'm just glad Itachi finally got his closure in the manga. I couldn't bear it if they just left it at that, with Sasuke being too late an' all. I'm glad to see that you've done a good job characterizing Itachi, few authors know how to properly do a character introspection without having it get dull. Good job with this, Itachi's fanbase can never be too big!

"I fall to the ground in hopes that you'll never know how much I love you."
The whole story was very whoa. I could hear Itachi saying it and feeling the forlorn he was experiencing.
But that last sentence wove everything perfectly. And god, does it hurt. I always felt so sorry for Itachi, for having to do something like that and Sasuke losing a brother that loved him too much.
It was great, I swear. I loved this.

OH MY GODD! :( THAT WAS SO SAD! OMG I LOVED THE ENDING!
| Skylan chapter 1 . 3/13/2012
Nearly brought me to tears at the end. ) :
I really hate the horrible life that Kishi gave Itachi and Sasuke. I feel so bad for them ) : It isn't fair! Ugh. I just want time to rewind and for Sasuke and Itachi to live happily in Konoha (after slaughtering those damn elders) with a strong brotherly bond. *sigh*
Anyways, this story was an amazing read. I'm usually not big on reading 1st POV, but it was nice to see someone's views of Itachi's thoughts.
| sadistic dreamkiller chapter 1 . 3/13/2012
You've transcribed Itachi's thoughts well. He'd endured hell on earth and you did wonderfully with the tribute to him. I know that hollow feeling of confirmation you speak of that indeed, he was one of the good guys. T_T
I cried when he died the first time I read. It was horrible.
Anyway, I see there seems to be a comeback of ye writers of olde as of this year. Hmm. Must be the end of the world. :D Gods are stirring from sleep, I must keep track of you as well.
