Very ingenious way to use "Iwa-nin's love confession to Sakura" canon scene into your story! It make a lot of awkwardness between sakura and shi...How long you think that Shi or Sakura finally find eureka moment to find out how separate enemy and ally's chakra? can't wait to read next chapter!

This is so well written! Really, the characterization has floored me. You've done a very realistic job of portraying the confusion and trauma of war, and I really think that Shi's initial attitude towards Konoha (that everything is kind of their fault) is plausible.
You've made me like Sakura again, too. My opinion of her took a huge nosedive after the fake confession/emotional manipulation scene, but reading this has made it go back up a little again.
And poor Genma and Shizune. God, that would suck.

lol, i read this right after responding to your reviewer response message...was kind of pleased to see i somewhat called it in regard to their encounter after the Danzo/Sasuke fight :)
I've decided i know what my favorite part of your writing is...no matter how AU you go with things, you somehow manage to keep everything well grounded in Canon. Character personalities are spot on, even in cases where romance might evolve between an unlikely couple...the characters you write about, even when in radically different situations, are still at their core the same characters you grow to enjoy from the series.
In cases like Sasuke from DBH, he is still definitely Sasuke, many many events there are different, but it does not feel like a different character, rather just a different path that character might have taken.
Sakura's encounter with Shizune was amazingly emotional, I really felt for both in that moment.
Shi and Sakura's discomfort after the Iwa-nin's confession was equally well written. You could definitely feel all the awkwardsness there.
Great work once again
Until next time :)

Awesome story! Can't wait for more! I love how you take a segment of the war that's bloody, harsh, sometimes unrewarding and unnoticed and bring it to life! More please! :)

Here we are, another great update!
I'm loving the way Shī was cast here. To see that as well as being top medic medic and bodyguard of the Raikage, he has his own flaws and mistakes that need to be perfected and practiced too. I currently find myself surprised that he was also trained more for the battlefield rather than the laboratory and continually tries to find out why he cannot make full use of his skills with the other medics around.
The part where Shī has a conversation with Akari would also have to another thought-provoking scene. It's was actually quite funny seeing how quick she drew him out of his shell and into his feelings of Sakura. You can obviously tell he's rather reluctant to talk about it but he does consider it at the back of his mind - regardless of how relevant or irrelevant the idea of 'love' may seem to him. The dialogue was captivating as you didn't make the viewers 'read' the conversation, but alas, made us 'understand' the conversation as well as relating it to their current situation.
I found myself laughing at his reaction towards Naruto's sudden arrival. The way Shī keeps on pondering Naruto sensory skills and comparing it to his own was rather amusing. If it was created in the manga it would also be another heartwarming moment for both Naruto and Sakura so I'm glad you decided to place this in here.
Weirdly enough, I don't really have to say about Sakura as I find you write her extremely well. The part where she notices Shī's sudden change in attitude would definitely be true to her character. The pacing between all of the characters is also pleasing so take take your time.
Looking forward to the next installment - you write so fast! :)
