Sequel to Spring Fever. So why didn't Iruka just refuse Kakashi's rather odd proposal? Perhaps the spring season is to blame once more.
(#) Macey_Muse 2006-08-01 08:07:57 AMMay I take this opportunity to say that I love your writing?
I keep meaning to review something of yours, but forgetting. I think I've read everything you've written (except The Source, as you said there'll be an updated version up so I'm waiting to read it) from aff.net, Dacia's GW site, your LJ and now here (after having been seduced into joining by your lj-post). Your Wufei is genius, your Lee so real, and On/Off Switch is the hottest thing I've ever read. Also, the details in your works fascinate me, especially Freeport's political system. I loved the diner in this fic; -not- the place to take someone on your first date. Except, in a Kakashi/shinobi way, it completely is; he took Iruka somewhere he obviously trusted to be safe, and showed him something most wouldn't get to see. Which is about as romantic as I could imagine Kakashi getting, really ^_^
Author's responseThanks! A GW as well as a Naruto fan, happy to see that ^_^ Yes, only Kakashi would think that joint would be the perfect place for a first date...and be right about it. Iruka's got his work cut out, but he'll love every minute of it (and go insane on a frequent basis)
(#) CASEY 2006-10-03 08:02:06 PMIloved it lots and cant wait for the next part to be finished so i can read it. I loved it so much. You really got kakashi's personality done pat. Thanks for the great read. bye
Author's responseThanks ^_^ I've still not started on the third part, beyond a few lines; I'm busy with real life annoyances these days. I hope I can get to it before I completely forget what I wanted to write!

As if the writing style itself weren't fully endearing, your characterizations are beyond my scope of praise. Your Iruka blows me away, especially, and you Kakashi is just... Kakashi!
There are too many beautiful parts of this fic for me to condense it into a list, but I do love the restaraunt as a whole.
The only thing that comes close to an issue: Ibiki is a special jounin, which is something of a glorified chuunin. Why would he frequent an establishment for high-level jounin? (Not that it doesn't totally suit him)
(#) d 2006-12-30 09:48:04 AMTook me -ages- to track this sequel down, but wow was it worth the effort. I know you've veered into other fandoms and pairings since (and am a big fan of the one's you've chosen, so yay) but wouldn't complain at all if you did a follow-up to this.
Whilst there are innumerable bits of this fic that I love, I think my favourite is Kakashi's invisible silent laugh. That made me smile. Mmm, and Iruka's calm admittance that the menu wasn't going to lead to rapturous sex. (curses, foiled.) And the end, where Iruka's level-headedness and pragmatic relationship evaluation wins hands down.
I -love- this story.
Heehee, It's great to see the other characters making an appearance, the fortune cookie was a cute touch. I really wished you'd named that veteran/cook/waiter/manager but it's probably as great if you didn't... Beter, adds mystery, although you might have mentioned some of he names scratched into the counter you tease. Anyways, I love the way things are going. And if you end it right here, I'd be happy too, although, I'd be happier if i continued... hint hint.
(#) cheydancer 2008-12-15 11:03:40 PMFound your fiction over at lj and there was an allusion to Spring Fever, which I couldn't find linked over there... so a quick google turned up this page and am I ever so glad to have found it.
I certainly love your very frank and somewhat caustic Kakashi, but the win is definitely feisty and practical Iruka.
Both stories are not only funny, but offer a wealth of believable insight into the characters themselves and you are awesome in the 'show, don't tell' department of storytelling.
