Down to the Bone (PART 1 BC THIS IS 7800 characters omg)
tfw you're too excited about the new thread that you can't actually focus enough to read it. ╰(✧∇✧╰) I've written like 150 words of this comment without even being able to sit still for long enough to get past the first sentence. Sometimes being too excited for this impeads my ability to actually read it. It's terrible. :3 (I'm pushing the rambly part where I talk about the podfic progress to the end of the comment, lol). AND APPARENTLY THIS IS GOING TO BE ANOTHER LONG REVIEW. SORRY, NOT SORRY.
*takes a deep breath* Okay. I can actually do this.
"Out of the goodness of his heart, he added trunks and pants, too." -- Ryouma is so generous. I feel like if he hadn't Kakashi might have just turned around and walked right back out. It would have been a tough call between remaining unflappable vs being uncomfortable. The poor dear.
"Do you know the kanji for 'dick'?" -- PPFFFTTTT. Kakashi is apparently dedicated to helping Ryouma. (Unsurprisingly, yes, I realize this. You've been building up his character very nicely so it's not shocking how much he's willing to do to help out his friends. It's just he doesn't want anyone to know he cares. Because that would be sooo awful. Plus I'm sure "Dick" is a fairly common kanji in the books that he likes [o h m y g o d, Kakashi plz.]) To be fair, while formal language classes tend to stray away from 'rude' language, every class I have been in has, as soon as the teacher is out of hearing, strayed into what vulgarities people know. It's a wonderful facet of humans.
"(And where had Kakashi learned the characters for 'squirting'? Raidou'd said that book Kakashi was always carrying around was actually porn, but… Really?)" -- I love this about (particularly your) Kakashi. It really r e a l l y out of character at times. Particularly the demi/ace!Kakashi you've been pushing. [not that he's identified as such in text that I've seen but it's been reading that way to me and I've been loving how that plays into the dynamics of the team. Particularly with way more flirty/handsy people like Ryouma. It's a learning experience for them both!] People are complicated. And o h my g o d. I still remember that beautiful moment when Ryouma suggested they go see the IchiIchi movie. (/ω＼)
And then ""You're not actually terrible at this." Ryouma didn't, quite, fumble the cards he was sorting" - DAAAAAAAAAAWWWWW. TEAM BONDING. THIS IS THE CUTEST. AND THEN EVERYTHING ELSE. THIS WHOLE CONVERSATION. I WANT TO JUST PULL ALL OF IT AND SCREAM ABOUT IT BECAUSE JUST-- *w a i l i n g* I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THESE FEELINGS. They are both a little broken (everyone in Anbu is). They both are acknowledging their failings. I JUST WANT TO HUG THEM BOTH. SO MANY FEELS. sdlfajk;sdlkfjas;ldkfjassdlafkjsdlkfjasldkfj. LKTJSTDLKJFLKSDJFLKSDJFLSDK. I CANNOT VERBALIZE THE FEELS. THERE ARE TOO MANY IN THIS PART. BUT IT IS THE BEST! THEY ARE BOTH HOPELESS. SO MANY FEELS. I CANNOT CONTAIN THEM. (this screaming just keeps getting longer every time I tab back over to the actual story and find that OH MY GOD. THEY ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT THEIR FEELINGS. Somehow this is even better than a training montage and I was just saying the other week how that was my favorite.
((Also, only bringing the non-porno cards to the office is a good idea. I'm just imagining Kuroda seeing those and LSKDJFLKSD. No.))
((A l s o. OH MY GOD THIS COMMENT IS GETTING SO LONG. @___@ Again, sorry not sorry))
OH MY GOD. KATSUKO'S RANT ON HER SWORD WORK. *swoon* She is so beautiful. Kakashi would be such a little shiiiiit. OH MY GOD. "...he makes the stubborn face at me and says, 'Fine, no viper strike, but if I do a—' and then he says some Earth Country move nonsense and grabs my wrist to show me. And I, foolish Sensei that I am, I stand there and wait patiently for him to show me what he's talking about." SLKDJFSLKDJFLSKD. FLSDKJFLSKDJFLSKDJFLSKD. THIS LITTLE SHIT. AHHHHH. TRAINING MONTOGE IS ONCE AGAIN MY FAVORITE. (this would probably change AS SOON as feels start up again, but oh my god. I'm laughing so hard.)

Down to the Bone (PART 2 BC THIS IS 7800 characters omg)
(wrt Ryouma showing off his kanji reading skills) TBH, Kakashi being a good teacher is the most surprising thing about this. I think it has come up before... maybe it was in a different fanfic or some tumblr meta or something. Actually, on reflection, I'm pretty sure it was tumblr meta talking about him and Team 7. BUT, the point was that he was a genius that picked up things extraordinarily fast. So trying to explain them and break things down to teach others could be difficult. But it works so well and it just warms my heart and I want to hug EVERYONE in this party.
AND THE KURODA COMES BACK AND RUINS EVERYONE'S DAY. *rips out hair* UGGHHHH. HE IS THE WORST. lksdjflkasjd. I want to know why he was chosen. He's in Anbu. Is he one of Danzo's picks? Is he just better at hiding this around his superiors. He's just such an asshole it seems unbelievable that he's managed to get so far. UGH. ;___; Ryouma was so happy. He's doing so well and fucking Kuroda comes in to shit on everything everyone loves.
"The edited notes from your latest meeting are on your desk. I took the liberty of re-organizing some of them for you. I hope you don't mind." AHAHAHA SUCK IT. Holy hells, you have done an excellent job developing the awfulness that is Kuroda.
And dawwwwwww, Gemna trying to defend Ryouma. He's so wonderful and I just want to give him 10000 hugs. He is the best. He is actually the perfect lieutenant for this team and I just adore him and Ryouma working together. I'm pumped for Gemna+Ryouma times in the stack. It's going to be awesome.
And fuck. Kakashi drawing Kuroda out. Forcing him to give him work. God. "It sounded perfectly respectful, but Ryouma could think of at least three swear words Kakashi could fit into the same number of syllables." Kuroda isn't going to ever win any brownie point from Kakashi, at least after how Kuroda's handled his team.
And AHHHHH. MORE BACKSTORY! I've been wondering so much what's up with Katsuko's and Kakashi's families (I mean, obvs not Sakumo but...). There's been a handful of hints dropped and I've been dying to know more. I adore all the offers to kill people in this chapter. It's just so... *sigh* assassins, man.
"I set him free and send him off into the wide green world to roam where he pleases." -- I'd say Katsuko has the best dialogue but, somehow, they all have the best dialogue. So ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ "I'm sure the sociopaths are charming." -- Oh Kakashi.
Also, I have podfic'd the whole of the prologue! It's in the process of being edited but I'm hoping to actually post it soon ;___; I really really want to post it but it still needs some fixes and I have to re-record some lines and blah blah blah. And then I'm really thinking I'm going to just post the whole of what's included in the e-book prologue at the same time so I want to finish all of those threads even though Mama Come Home is basically done. I love this story so much! It's been a whole lot of fun recording. I have to say, I'm really looking forward to get to the main plot of the story. Not that I don't enjoy the oneshot preludes to the story. But once the Anbu Trials start up things just get so intense and I love it and then there is all the snark between e v e r y o n e. The whole team is just one sarcastic pile of adorable killers. It's going to be interesting getting through A Man Who Is Not Afraid without just melting down from too much blushing, lol. (*/ω＼*)
WONDERFUL CHAPTER! There was too much failing and I barely made it through it. But I loved every second!
