| Nom de Plume chapter 1 . 12/27/2014
I cannot believe I never left a review for this... I know writers say that reviews don't matter as long as the material is read & acknowledged but please, we all know reviews are literal tokens of appreciation. If a writer can take time out of her/his life to put her/his ideas out there, we readers can take a moment of our time to say thanks, too!
I thought this looked familiar but even on a second read-through, it reads as fresh and as well as the first time did. Your characterization of both, but most especially Sasori since this was mainly from his POV, was on the freakin' dot. How blasé and straightforward he is, how he detests waiting, how he was already thinking ahead of his 'moves' on painting, and the little thought-tribute to dear grandma Chiyo. How precious. Haha. At the end here, it really makes me wonder how Sai and him would have interacted. It is unfortunate that you don't have more stories contributed to these two but I guess I should be thankful that you decided to write for this pairing at all.

I like the portrayal of Sasori as a painter, rather than a puppeteer.

I liked the whole paragraph with the sentence, "It was always interesting to watch people study portraits of themselves." ...and how Sasori never says please and just orders her around (in a good way? Do I make sense?). Anyway I like the fic!

Adsjhfsdgh! I LOVE THIS fanfic! I love the way you wrote everything, their interactions, the dialogue, the detail and the description- it was perfect. *u* I wish I could write like that orz. But keep writing. Love quality SasoSaku fics!

This was truely a beautiful piece. The character reactions and everything was spot on. I look forward to reading more stories from you, hopefully more SasoSaku ones .
| ailleurs chapter 1 . 11/13/2012
Wow, this is really lovely! The characters are believable, and your writing style is lovely :) Very nice one-shot! PS. I don't usually read SasoSaku, but figured I should give it a try since it's SasoSaku month _v

Your story was amazing. Wow.
Seriously, it's one-of-a-kind, a perfect mix of Sakura and Sasori's real personalities, and the way you explained the whole thing was absolutely impressing. I really, really liked it and couldn't stop reading until the very last word. It deserves to be in my favorites.
Most of the SasoSaku stories I read for the past week didn't fascinate or catch my attention at all. But yours did. Frankly, it's kind of hard to find a story that would intrigue me, so I will definitely support you to keep writing. :)

I didn't know there was a SasoSaku month either :O
Either way, this was really good. I mean, you don't see a lot of good fics for SasoSaku-not that there aren't ANY good ones, but the pairing isn't exactly written by a lot of people. I think you perfectly captured the essence of both Sasori and Sakura-his hatred for being kept waiting and her determination-and turned into this which was just fantastic.

I agree with you. 3k words might not sound as impressive to others, but it is also a miracle for me to write that much in just two-three days.
AND OMG, THIS IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
I read it all the way without stopping at all! I usually got distracted sometimes while reading stories even when they are less than 3k words but yours got me entertained throughout the whole story! :)
Just want to tell you this is really amazing! You give fabulous descriptions and wonderful explanations and nice dialogue and- and so many things that are really great! You should write more! Especially Sasosaku since they deserve more love! Hahas!

Well, first of all, I just loved it to pieces!
Your AU interpretation of the characters (especially Sasori) was both interesting and spot-on; I know that's one important aspect that we fanfiction authors always strive for :)
Sasori's fascination with Sakura's coloring was very believable due to his artistry, and it served as an intriguing foundation upon which to begin such a relationship. I went crazy for the romantic, flirty-yet-subtle vibes between them at the end. Like I said, it was gold.
SasoSaku is such an under-appreciated pairing despite their canon interaction right before his death, so it's always such a joy to find a golden fic like this!
Thank you so much for contributing this oneshot and keep up the excellent writing!

this was one of the best sasosaku fics i've read in quite awhile!
| sasukes chapter 1 . 11/8/2012
I love SasoSaku so much. And this was so beautiful and simple and just. Wow. Can I also say your writing's evolved a lot? It's more... How can I put this. Mature. It's more mature.
I love it.
