Author's Note- o.O wow, I didn't think so many people would respond. I'm touched. Really! And I don't really want to right a sequel to this one (it's just not a good fic without a little live Naruto), so I'm starting a new one soon! Keep your eyes peeled if you're interested, okay?

To Reviewers-

Ria Sakazaki- I'm glad you liked it! It was my first angst, so I was really nervous about it

the third Rave Master: Zero X- I'm proud that I almost made you cry! In a good way. I'm not a sadist. Really. cough cough

poofspoon- I HATE those fanfictions! So no sappy funeral scenes, honest.

Narutofreak22- okay, I'll try to. I already have one concocted in my head...evil laughter

Kyuubi-kun- why, thank you! Did you think it was going to be bad?

KraZOtaku- backs away slowly He's in a happier place! And it's not my fault people didn't review! DON'T KILL ME!!!

LoveinItStrong- thank you! A most wonderful, two-word review you sent me. I was honored by its sincerity. bows

lina- Yeah, I'm stopping it here. But I'm writing another one soon, on the (slightly) same track, so check up, please!

Sasunaru-fangurls- Thank you! It's always hard to portray Sasuke, b/c he's usually so cold and brooding...

anonymous victim- WOW!!! My first flamer!! glomps angry reviewer Even though it was full of cussing, I still thank you! And I will keep in mind your touching words. It IS starting to get cold, and my fireplace will need more fuel...although, I can't really throw in my dearest computer, now can I?

FiendisHSerapH- I'm glad you liked it so much!! When I saw your review, I fixed the fic so it said the song, but just in case you didn't read it, it's "Is it Mine, Lord?" by Supertramp.

Dreamlife- I'm glad you think my work is GOOD work!

WaterBookLover- I am writing another fic, but I can't assure you about when it'll come out. I'll try to hurry!
