    Yeah could be both. And not to mention they all might be kids right now, but Shikako really isn't. Pretty sure she is the kind of moral person who really wouldn't consider any relationship with someone "her age" like the rookies simply because she has like 20 years of life experience more than all of them.

    Guess I am so used to pairings in fanfiction that I jumped to the wrong conclusions.

    I am glad to be wrong :)

    However I still think they treat each other way different than they treat everyone else. Unless I remember incorrect I think their dialog sometimes turn a tad awkward.
    That could however probably be explained with a combination of
    a) Team 7 being the thing closest to a family for Sasuke combined with Naruto being away.
    b) The issue with the Uchiha coup and Sasuke potentially being killed of just for saying the wrong thing.

    again, it could all be because of what I expected/dreaded...

    Cheddar probably got it right:

    Lots of people have relationships at 16. They're 14-15 right now, IIRC, because theyr'e still in timeskip territory, but a relationship at 16 seems pretty normal to me.



    I enjoy fics with little shipping, so y'all might be right, it's better not to introduce too much of it and mar a really good doc. On the other hand it's an interesting way to explore Sasuke's and Shikako's quirks and traumas.

    A bit of a great flight for something so trivial, wouldn't you say? If they are a member here (regular or otherwise), they will. If not, then it seems highly unlikely. Unless, this forum is a go-to place for reviews. If so, then it's certainly not in my knowledge.

    You should always assume that not everyone will know about a forum's popularity. Or is that a prerequisite for registration as well?

    I can see some small hints that Sasuke is developing some attraction though I feel Shikako would never involve herself with a 14 year old. I don't think it'll ever come up though, it would stress their friendship going into the conflicts with Akatsuki and Danzo that are coming post timeskip (I'm assuming they're still coming, who really knows though.)

    Though, actually, that could be interesting if Sasuke starts to drift further from Shikako before Naruto comes back. Would he try and strike at Itachi alone?

    I think you'll find that if you ever write a 100k+ fic, thereby devoting a significant amount of time (years) and effort to writing something... you'll google it at some point. Probably with the word 'review' attached in some form.

    Do that for this fic and DLP turns up fairly quickly, along with Reddit and some sites that the author has more control over. It hasn't got anything to do with knowing that DLP exists and coming here specifically to look and find your fic.

    I think it more likely than not that they've run across this thread. That doesn't mean they check it often, but I'd be surprised if at some point they hadn't google'd their own fic. To make sure it wasn't being plagiarized if nothing else.

    What?

    Touchiness aside, SilverQueen is aware of the thread.

    'At some point' is not the same searching for it frequently, which is precisely what I stated that, 'it is unlikely that she would ever read it.' Not when so many, more popular, venues are available for checking.

    However, I never claimed that it was an impossible prospect. Anyhow, this is a completely pointless debate. Whether she reads it or not, doesn't really concern me.

    Touchiness? *Chuckles* Well, all right, then.

    Well, that snowball sure took its time to get to the proper size, but it finally did. All the little changes resulted into this big one. I'm curious how Silver Queen will handle a War Arc since most authors I've seen try their hand on it in ff.net didn't actually know a lot about wars. Thankfully she's not most authors, so I'm pretty hyped for the next chapters.

    She has finally (at least it seems) thrown canon completely out the window. I can't wait to see what she has planned. I am also wondering if we will be seeing Naruto soon. I actually hope we don't. The story has been better without him to me.

    Agreed. Naruto feels too much like canon!Naruto-- by contrast, Sasuke and Kakashi have really come into their own.

    I'm really hoping the training trip will result in a similar change to Naruto, more in line with what 3 years of tutoring under Jiraiya should do.

    There is a new updated chapter out now. It is not appearing because ffnet is screwed up right now though. It is also saying it was updated April 14 or so for some reason. So enjoy.

    That's really weird. Doesn't even show on my favorites as updated like others that didn't alert have.

    Interesting chapter. We know more or less what Shikako is working on in terms of improving and getting better. We have some plot stuff happening, albeit more in the background than anything. And we have an idea of where Shikako's thoughts are going in terms of what she wants to be doing.

    All of that said, there wasn't a ton of movement or things actually happening. But as usual I'm okay with that, given that at least it felt like things are moving along in some way.

    I think that side story (well, those few paragraphs), gave me a lot more than I expected. I love how this story handles consequences, and how the impacts grow. Here - it's a perfectly natural follow up for the scene at Hokage's office in the last official chapter.

    It perfectly and logically answers the question on what Shikaku is going to do with that information.

    Yet, at the same time, it doesn't spend time on it in the main story - I'm sure we're gonna see the impact of Shikaku's
    attempt to maul a motherfucker
    , to borrow the wise words of tomato, in the story, and it's gonna be a surprise for our protagonist, and might just go very terribly wrong (or right).

    I think it shows how a good writer can take out bits and pieces that are cool, but would break the rhythm of the story. I sat back and pondered this, and realized that this way, the main story keeps a lot more focused, and I love it for it. Whenever I feel like it, I can go and look at these side stories, but they are my choice - the author didn't get me to read through these little bits - and made my original experience better.

    I'm not sure I'm putting it to words in the right way, but bottom line is - this is one of the very few stories that I keep wanting to go back and reread, and I think I like it more with every run-through.

    Also, it's actually updating, which is a miracle these days.

    I have been reading this fanfic for almost a year now, is really good in my opinion, but lately, I found that it doesn't catch my attention like it used to do.
    I hope, that Shikako will end up with someone. I also think that Sasuke has feelings for her. I canĀ“t wait for Naruto to come back to Konoha.
