This was so heart felt, it really did almost make me cry! I had to stop myself from tearing up... but wow, it was just plain lovely. Awesome story, great job! P.s. Neji was such an ass but that was exactly what Sasuke needed to escape. Mikoto was so spineless it disgusted me.

The ending to this was rather abrupt, and a little unsatisfying. Sasuke was in love with Naruto for over 12 years, then all of a sudden, Naruto shows up after they've been separated for 8 years and they have sex. All the problems were fixed so easily and without trouble. And yet we'd had three and a half chapters of Sasuke holding in his feelings and pining for Naruto. One kiss when they were teenagers and now they fall into bed immediately after reuniting as adults? I didn't want more major drama, but I did want something from the fic that showed everything Sasuke went through wasn't for nothing. With it happening easily like this, it makes it seem like if Sasuke had confessed all those years ago, maybe he would have gotten Naruto without much trouble. And if not, I at least wanted to know that Naruto had suffered the way Sasuke had when they were apart for all those years.
There was no explanation of Naruto's feelings, like when he realized he could like another guy, or when he developed feelings for Sasuke. Had he ever experienced the same kind of homophobia Sasuke did? Or was this a "gay for you" pairing? (Ugh.) And did he ever obsesses over Sasuke the way Sasuke obsessed over him? Obviously, he missed Sasuke because he was his best friend, but had he also been pining for him all those years they'd been apart? Or did he only realize the attraction while they were easting ramen? I think there was a lot in the "I've never" game that got said that we really missed out on.
Also, and this is just me, but I found it a little distasteful that Sasuke's first time with Naruto happened after a drunken game of I've never, same way that it happened with Neji. I really didn't like the unintentional connection between the two guys, particularly since the NaruSasu relationship was so much more meaningful and didn't need that kind of drunken stupidity as a catalyst.
And lastly, speaking of Neji, I really, really wanted Naruto to talk to Sasuke about that. They never once discussed Naruto's reaction to the video being passed around. Why the hell didn't he try to defend Sasuke when Kiba started picking on him in the cafeteria? He was there when it happened! Why didn't he pull Sasuke aside during school, prior to lunch, to let him know someone had sent around a pornographic video of him? What kind of friend was he?! He essentially let Sasuke be gossiped about all day without his knowledge. How humiliating! Naruto should have been running around deleting those videos, not sitting on his hands and letting people call Sasuke a slut! And why didn't Naruto contact Sasuke after he ran out of school to ask him if he was okay? When Sasuke came over, Naruto never said a word about the whole thing, which was shitty of him. Sasuke had to mention it, but Naruto acted like he'd forgotten about it, which was so fake! You mean to tell me he'd forgotten about someone sending around a porn video of his best friend (who he thought was straight and a virgin!) getting fucked by a guy only a couple of hours earlier?! As if!
All of these were major, major failures of friendship on Naruto's part and Naruto never got the chance to justify his actions. If nothing else, I wanted to know what Naruto thought when he saw the video itself. Was he shocked? Disgusted? Turned on? And of course, what did Naruto do after Sasuke left? Did he get angry at Kiba for what he'd done in the cafeteria? Did he beat the crap out of Neji? Even if, at that point, Naruto didn't have romantic feelings for Sasuke, all of these people ruined Sasuke's life and caused him to lose his best friend. Do you seriously mean to tell me Naruto took that lying down?! He was okay with the fact that Sasuke got disowned and was forced to move to another state all because Neji wanted a little high school popularity?
Sorry, just way too many lose ends in this fic. I don't mind lose ends with plot stuff as much as I mind lose ends with character development stuff, and that's the major issue here. Naruto never developed as a character beyond the idealized glimpse we got of him as a kid in the first couple of chapters. If he was worthy of being Sasuke's partner in the end, then we really needed some closure on the Neji issue, particularly since Naruto didn't look that great over it. We also needed to know what his feelings were for Sasuke. Was that "I love you" after they climaxed sincere? For how long had he felt that way? The small town setting of this fic was an interesting one, but the character development needed a lot of work.

besides some little things & i assume typos this was very cute & written pretty well. it seems like it shouldn't be more than a T rating though. it would be way better if there was a full lemon at the end (not only for the hotness lol) it just seemed pretty rushed & doesn't really feel complete without it after all that pining away if that makes sense? you should add it in! :D

Oh it was like a cup of hot cocoa. It was warm and sweet with a depth and richness that has you going back for more. And when your done you have this warmth inside you now from the experience but you still want/crave more.
Sweet story. The end seemed slightly rushed and would have liked a bit more of Naruto and Sasuke at the end because he was someone that he has thought about for so long. I understand that you eluded to people to think of where they end up on their own, just craving for more since he was such a instrumentatal part or Sasuke.

Epilogue would be AWESOME! I want it! I want it! I need to know whether Naruto moves to the city or Sasuke moves back to the countryside? How does Naruto handle Sasuke's job and its strange circumstances, and suspicious boss? Will Itachi be more accepting of Naruto this time around? What about Sasuke's parents? Do they never come around to the idea of their son being gay? How will Sasuke's friends react to Naruto? AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! So many questions! Please bestow onto me the answers!
Ehem, a Epilogue would be nice thank you, heh.
