Take Me Back to the Start and Dangerous Game

(Link)

So with Take Me Back to the Start – I’m still loving Minato; he just radiates good vibes, and it reflects so well onto the other characters. Kakashi’s conversations with him are as close to open as you can get with Kakashi, and that’s fascinating to see. Equally interesting is the way Kakashi interacts with Naruto; I’m still trying to fit ‘babysitting’ and ‘Kakashi’ in the same sentence, but it’s working out quite well. Naruto is so very ninja and so very four-years-old.

Kakashi propped his chin on his hand and wondered what normal civilian children looked like. Their parents must be so bored.

I think my favorite part, though, was when everyone conspired to keep Minato napping.

What Sanda said, about keeping the action but adding the warmth – I definitely agree with that, and I really, really like the directions these threads are going.

Dangerous Game

Gosh, guys, I’m on the edge of my seat so often with these threads I’m about to fall straight out of my chair. I love that feeling.

What Dark was saying earlier about Kakashi having a less traumatic past really shows when he’s around Ryouma; there’s this little thrill I get every time I see him showing his trust to others; or throwing out little bits of sarcasm that are something closer to playful, rather than scathing. It’s also interesting to see Kakashi’s arrogant side come out during his interview – I had wide eyes, slack jaw, and a little laugh of disbelief during some of his answers.

My jaw also dropped when Ryouma actually considered the prospect of teaching Kakashi his jutsu. Their exchange after Ryouma’s interview (during which I held my breath most of the time) was among my favorites so far. Not to mention, “Worse than an alley cat,” might be my new favorite description for Ryouma.

I remember Five Finger Fillet coming up a few times back in Leaves; I enjoyed that part lots, along with the camaraderie-competitiveness between all the candidates. The side characters are just as vivid as your fully fleshed out main characters.

I adored QM and his stash of weapons. I’m eager to see what Ryouma’s going to end up doing with his; even more than that, though, I’m excited to see their masks.

Apparently constructive criticism counted as less than extreme respect. Kakashi considered a future filled with bugs.
That’s a favorite line of mine.

ALSO I’m really delighted you guys are enjoying my reviews, aaah! Your replies to my replies make me bounce in my chair with excitement, you have no idea. You’re a wonderful bunch and I love getting to chat about your threads with you <33 Thanks for sharing!

I'm glad you enjoy our replies to your reviews, because YOUR reviews (and everyone else's!) make us message each other in utter glee: "DID YOU SEE, THEY LIKE OUR STUFF!"

I loved helping out with Take Me Back To the Start (writing Minato and Naruto was a BLAST), so it's delightful to see that you enjoyed it, too. It's so, so fun to see the changes in Kakashi that result from having a living sensei and a pseudo little-brother, people who love him and whom he loves in return. And you're absolutely right that it changes his character in ways that go beyond his interaction with Minato and Naruto. He still has sharp edges, but they're not quite as ready to draw blood (even his own).

Really glad you're enjoying the Kakashi/Ryouma exchanges--they still surprise us, too! Five Finger Fillet was my idea but entirely DK's execution. Wasn't it awesome?

Thanks again for your lovely review!

Minato's totally the Ubermensch -- he's one of those people that makes you better just by being around them, which is a joyful and very frustrating quality in a parent-figure. XD You should get to see Kakashi with Rin fairly soon.

Equally interesting is the way Kakashi interacts with Naruto; I’m still trying to fit ‘babysitting’ and ‘Kakashi’ in the same sentence, but it’s working out quite well. Naruto is so very ninja and so very four-years-old.

All credit to Ki for Naruto being a realistic four-year-old. I'm really hoping we'll get to see more of him, actually. The "what if" of Naruto growing up as a normal (ish) kid is one that totally fascinates me.

What Sanda said, about keeping the action but adding the warmth – I definitely agree with that, and I really, really like the directions these threads are going.

*DELIGHT*

Gosh, guys, I’m on the edge of my seat so often with these threads I’m about to fall straight out of my chair. I love that feeling.

PLEASE DON'T HURT YOURSELF, WE WOULD BE SAD.

What Dark was saying earlier about Kakashi having a less traumatic past really shows when he’s around Ryouma; there’s this little thrill I get every time I see him showing his trust to others; or throwing out little bits of sarcasm that are something closer to playful, rather than scathing.

That's really beautifully described. And excellent, I AM DELIGHTED AGAIN. I'm still finding my way a little with this new, younger version of Kakashi, and because he is younger, he slip-slides a little more than the Fallen Leaves version as he figures himself (and other people out), too. But I'm very glad to hear he's working. :D

And he's an arrogant little bastard, you're right. That'll be coming out more, too.

I had wide eyes, slack jaw, and a little laugh of disbelief during some of his answers

TOTALLY THE REACTION I WANTED. :D

Yet more delight that you're enjoying Kakashi and Ryouma. You're going to have SO MUCH FUN when you get to see the full team, which should be very soon. Looots of banter.

The masks are totally fantabulous; I hope you enjoy the reveal. Ki also did some really magnificent stuff with the oath-taking from Minato's side. Also coming up soon!

Apparently constructive criticism counted as less than extreme respect. Kakashi considered a future filled with bugs.

That’s a favorite line of mine.


Hah! Really? Thanks for picking it out. I love hearing what lines resonate with people, or make them laugh.

ALSO I’m really delighted you guys are enjoying my reviews, aaah! Your replies to my replies make me bounce in my chair with excitement, you have no idea. You’re a wonderful bunch and I love getting to chat about your threads with you <33 Thanks for sharing!

WE LOVE YOUR REVIEWS SO MUCH. Thank you for sharing them. I think there's a bit of a feedback loop going on, between your delighted bouncing and our delighted flailing. XDD Chat to us anytime! <33
