Sometimes Naruto wonders. And just once, the Yondaime wondered as well.
- Why can you write Naruto introspection so well? It just ain't fair. In character and yet thoughtful in a way we rarely ever see Naruto, and yet know is there. Anyway: 'Tis a thing of beauty.
The darling Yondaime is a lot more ... focused than I've seen in similar fics. It fits, but he doesn't seem as positive in his outlook as others would put him. Here he's more like a do-your-duty-and-die type person. I'm not certain I agree with the interpretation. I'll need time to digest it. Still, brilliant, and wonderfully sensitive story.
- This is wonderful. So insightful!
It has the subtext that alot of fics out there are missing...
The subtext that I try ever so hard to put into my own fics but never quite manage..and you've done it so perfectly.
^_^ I repeat- this is wonderful.
