Keep up the good work. Very well written.

I don't agree with your view on what would've happened to Haku if Naruto and his friends hadn't vouched for him. I highly doubt they'd want to execute a near extinct bloodline wielder. I could see 1 of 2 things happening (well 3 but it's tied into one of the options) they'd either seal off his chakra and bind him to the village to live as a civilian in hopes that he'd eventually find a female to settle down with thus hopefully continuing his bloodline making the leaf stronger OR they'd send him off to prison (which is where the 3rd option I mentioned comes into play) where most likely Danzo would eventually secretly take him out of the prison and put him into his ROOT forces which wouldn't be to difficult with Haku already having been at least partially broken by Zabuza having claimed him to be nothing more than his tool and then even more so later at the death of Zabuza. So I believe Danzo could easily break him the rest of the way making him into an emotionless killer and then eventually use him to produce more Hyoton wielders within his secret army.

Love the writing and the story, but I have one big criticism. Naruto seems to rely on Kurama's power far too much and seems to do barely anything to up his own natural strength and speed. It seems, to me at least, that Naruto simply uses Kurama's power at the drop of a hat instead of relying and improving on his own strength.

you really don't understand the KAGE bunshin do you? In the case of the KAGE bunshin you DON'T use SMALL amounts of Chakra you have to have AT LEAST JONIN level reserves and the point is to pour LOTS of chakra into it. I know Naruto is younger at this point than in canon but you're describing EXACTLY what happened when he tried to do a STANDARD bunshin. IF in canon he was able to learn the KAGE bunshin in a matter of somewhere between 1 - 3 hours with ONLY READING the instructions from a scroll having someone actually explain to him exactly how it's supposed to be done should make him learn it quicker and also by telling him to put AS MUCH chakra into as possible instead of saying to use SMALLER AMOUNTS (PLAIN RETARDED SAYING THAT FOR THIS JUTSU) then he should be able to get it faster. I mean seriously why say use smaller amounts when this is a jutsu that requires LARGE amounts of chakra

I like that Zabuza died defending Haku.

I hope Naruto can get along with the kyubi soon. Kurama is one of my favorite characters.

Sad that the kids couldn't spend time with Sasuke right after the massacre, but I guess that's what would have happened in reality. Poor Sasuke. :(
Great fic! I like the character development and Iruka :)
| Colonel Sausage chapter 2 . 8/22
Nice chapter! Some additional breaks between scenes would help with the reading but the writing is great! I like where the story is going! Looking forward to more.
| Colonel Sausage chapter 1 . 8/22
Maybe it's just my time of month when I get overly sensitive with the feels, but this first chapter made me cry. I think this is a great fic and I think you should keep writing!

So this feels horribly out of place to put in a review here - after Naruto "dies" and all - but I have to admit, your version of Naruto is just about as frustratingly dumb as the one in canon. I love the pacing you've got for the relationship between Naruto and Hinata, I love how Naruto is getting more emotional support from Iruka, and I love how Team 7 has been growing and improving by training together. But in the end, it got so bad you had to use the freakin' Kyuubi to remind Naruto to develop his other ninja skills and not put all his eggs in one demonic-chakra basket. Given the number of people supporting him both personally and professionally (unlike anything that happened in canon), one of them should have pointed out the obvious to Naruto *long* before the point where Kurama felt it necessary. You write well, especially when it comes to battle scenes, but I get an impression that you tend to lack the imagination to diversify Naruto's ninjutsu skills, or perhaps are simply too comfortable writing him with his canon skill-set to consider expanding it here. It's frustrating, given how much he should have improved by all standard measure, but I'm just not seeing it yet.

I read the other chapters after this to 31 but I'm reviewing here because I want to make a comment.
Over all great story, better than the three I tried reading after this. the grammar is well done, as is the spelling.
My one comment is that I know they like to rest after training, but for Kakashi to roll onto the conveniently placed couch in the middle of the training ground is just lazy. Aren't spelling mistakes fun?

This is a great fic! I love the character development. I've been reading it nonstop for the past few days and I can't wait until the next update! You sure know how to keep things interesting. I mean the final exams, a tough mysterious probably non genin, a unthinkable Uchiha and finally more serious training, totally in love!

Politics can be quite the pain in the butt, can't it. Poor Tsunade. At least nothing bad's happening to Naruto though. $5 says it was Danzo or one of his agents that messed with Naruto. It's good to see you're still updating, looking forward to the next chapter. Until then.
