Part of what I like most about your stories is your views on Sasuke. Particularly your 'for want of a nail' (the 'nail' being a pedophilic snake obsessed psychotic narcissist closet homosexual with a severe Vitamin D deficiency [a.k.a. pretty Voldemort] and/or a misguided avenger complex) interpretations of him. And this one in particular is really something. Normally he's the jackass, the rival, the villain, or the butt monkey...but here, he's the rock. He's not the strongest or the best, but he's the one who keep everyone grounded. I have never seen the like of this Sasuke in all the fandom. I'm really looking forward to seeing his successes and failures in the future, and how they make him grow.
If Sasuke wants answers about his own Naruto, then he'll have to ask the other Naruto why he smiles his empty smile.
Make Itachi the Hokage. It's so simple. How the hell did I miss that?! I have seriously got to remember that one while working on my own stories.
There really isn't much to say about young Naruto. His history is too much of a mystery to really comment on his story. All that we can be sure about is that at the point where cannon Naruto decided he'd stop letting people see him cry, and give those that hated him something to hate him for, young Naruto went the same way as Garra and closed himself off from everyone who wouldn't make the effort to get through to him. You admitted somewhere that Danzo had a hand in shaping young Naruto, but I can't see what it could be, as the prime motivator to turn Naruto into a weapon -to reinforce Konoha after the losses suffered from the Kyuubi and Uchiha massacres- doesn't matter thanks to the resolving of the Uchiha rebellion and appointment of Itachi as Hokage candidate. The only other reason I can tie to him making Naruto a weapon only works if he shares Tobirama's bone-deep distrust of the Uchiha to the point where he would break Naruto just so he'd have something to throw at the Uchiha if they tried rebelling again.
Kakashi spreading the good wood- er, word of the Ero-Sage, while nothing I haven't seen before, is uncommon enough to still be fun to read. Now if only he would show the badass potential to become Hokage that he was born with -which is something I'm debating rewriting one story to include because I remembered how much I like that subplot- he'd be damn near perfect.
Saukra...wants...to train...with Guy and Lee...? I feel like I should be watching out for swarms of locusts and raining fire. In the worst case, if she ends up in a jumpsuit could you not make it one of the forest-green ones the guys wear? Any color that matches her hair better would do, even if it's just pink with red accessories.
Keep up the great work!

Ha I knew this was preslash. Though no romance is probably better.
| voidblade6 chapter 4 . 2/22

I am very interested in your story. The way that it is told entirely through the eyes of Sasuke, and to a lesser extent Sakura, illustrates your ability to keep things tightly contained to a characters viewpoint. The original display of skills in a non-massacre AU is also extremely interesting to see.
But I have been burned on the yaoi before. In story's and in games, I have read/played to the point where I said to myself about the male/male relationships "No, they don't have feelings like that! They're bros and they're eating steak, and talking about life and war...over a bottle of wine... and now they're talking about settling down...God damnit!"
So please, in the interest of preserving what few barriers I have protecting my sanity, please message me back about whether or not this is going to be Yaoi. I don't really care, and if you can pull it off well, good on you, but I need to be prepared. Surprise buttsex is the worst kind.

Good story please update soon.

A good chapter. In terms of Philosophical and emotional disposition, Tobirama, was perhaps, the ideal guy was intimately familiar with the horrors of the Shinobi world from a young age and it was probably due to him that the more idealistic Hashirama survived as long as he did.

He also had the necessary mentality to be Hokage as Hiruzen pointed out in the manga. He might have been slightly too young though.

"You're all so bland I can't even hate you guys"
| BiblioMatsuri chapter 12 . 1/21
Sakura has a "soft spot for foxes." Wait, Naruto told Sasuke, but how would she know?
| BiblioMatsuri chapter 6 . 1/21
Hypothesis: The change that led to Naruto's state and the lack of an Uchiha coup/massacre was that Danzo was too busy de-personing Naruto to mess with Itachi/the Uchiha in general. (I could be wrong, so I'll just keep reading.)

"I know that the ship tease gets a bit heavy at times but... Forgive me, I just love teasing fangirls. I can't help it."
thats an understatement last time i read a Friendship was Kakashi Iruka friendship that devolved onto Yaoi.
It's very disturbing.
