Drabble. Temari POV. They'd watch and wonder just who he was trying to become, because every so often Shukaku would interfere.
- When rating this there was a four way tie between Moving, Original, Insightful, and Funny. I picked Insightful, just because I think you really went to the most effort to delve into Gaara's reformed character in this piece. But the ending was moving, and the idea that Gaara is pretty much a failure as a shinobi without Shukaku (although probably correct) is not something I'd really thought about before, which makes it both Original, and me giggle, because Shukaku is out to screw Gaara's life up, and it's wonderful.
