| Guest chapter 4 . 1/30
As an avid fan of crack pairings and very underrated characters I'm hoping for a SasuxIno turn out. Feisty meets fiesteier type romances are always more entertaining than your typical love struck teen brand of story. Though as much as I love me some Korean Drama worthy romances, I'm sure that this story's plot will certainly hold its own without the love aspect, if Rise of the Uchiha and the original story are anything to go by. Update fast :)

Hi. I think your story is great and I love your writing. However, my one complaint is that you've made Shikamaru and co too overpowered. I realise that they've grown and matured because of the events in the last story and this, but their growth was rather unbelievable.
It's too late to change that as you've already developed them as characters, but I just wished to leave that critique.
Please continue with the good work. Best regards.

What an amazing story (I also read your first fanfic about Team 10). I don't know how to say it better... thank you for sharing this !
I love the way you think of Team 10, even if its not exactly as expected. We see how they learn to deal with life in general, and most importantly, how to be a shinobi of the Leaf. I'm happy that you were able to change and improve credibly the abilities of Shikamaru, Ino and Choji. I also love Temari (even if I was a little disappointed by her failure in her match against Shikamaru), I'm looking forward to her future couple with Shikamaru. Speaking of couples, I was really convinced by your establishment of Asuma and Kurenai.
Please excuse my mistakes (my mothertongue is french), but I had to tell you how much I enjoy your story.
Good luck !

Guess what?! I love this chapter like A LOT!

But never mind!
As long as there's ShikaTema's part, i won't complain!
And Lady Tsunade is really really . . . cool in this chapter :D I love it!

"I'm not hungry." Coming from Choji, that's a flashing alarm sign.
Ow. Talk about there not being any good choices.

Ah-ha. Let me guess: Choji runs off before Ino has a chance to tell Sasuke to f*ck off. (Possibly with sharp pointy things pointed at soft vulnerable places, if he doesn't take the hint.) Lousy, lousy, lousy timing.
| BiblioMatsuri chapter 2 . 4/2/2013
Nitpick: At one point in the chase scene, Neji is described as the "Uchiha genius." Typo?
| BiblioMatsuri chapter 1 . 4/2/2013
*facepalm* Green-eyed monster much, Ino? And as usual, Choji is too blinking self-sacrificing for his own good.
...I'm going to guess that Sasuke finds out at least part of what he'd forgotten (and then some) at some point. Hello, fallout.
Shikamaru as a jutsu creator: Builds off the foreshadowing in OotD, and is potentially awesome/terrifying depending on whether or not someone is on the same side of the battlefield.

Thanks for persisting with this fic despite your commitments. I've been appreciating the journey, with the various elements of shinobi life and teenage life thrown into the mix. The chapter lengths and the fic's progression has been steady so far, and I'm curious to see where it goes on from here. Nice work, so far, with attention given to each relevant character. I feel for Ino and how she's been made to sacrifice so significantly, and for dear Chouji when he sees the act unfurl (and Ino's anguish watching Chouji witness this that will undoubtedly occur too). It surely reminds one of the fact that shinobi or not, these are youngsters who have been assuming heavy responsibilities which somewhat forces them to grow up more quickly, but that in the end, they're still teenagers.
I find Shikamaru rather less mature and intuitive than I would expect of him, both in and out of Temari's presence, but I can understand where you're coming from with this.
Looking forward to reading more.

Yay you're back. I've been waiting. I can tell you've put a lot of thought into this chapter. Tsunade is a real leader, not just in the military sense but in the knowing thy enemy and friend kind of way. Also it was funny to see Sasuke getting beat up like Naruto. I also about died when he gave her a thumbs up and did the ninja way thing. Also, Temari is fearless, which is refreshing since most stories have her denying her feelings for Shikamaru until they literally throw themselves at each other. Good for you. Really really can't wait for more.
