The following are the recorded responses of Eyazahrid to the feedback he received on the above listed chapter and the story in general for the week following. This document is to serve as a replacement to the traditional Author’s Note at the beginning and ending of chapters and will be kept separate from both the above listed chapter and any future chapters unless deemed sufficiently important.
“Mei: Reveal his identity. It might slow him down.
Naruto: Oh no! My identity has been revealed! I can no longer show up in public! What ever will I do?! Oh yeah. Henge. Hide in the shadows. Flaunt my godliness. Flaunt my status as a Daimyo. Whatever can I do?”
Obviously the only real option you listed there is flaunting it. It’s been too long since I compared him to an animal so I figure I’ll go ahead and add Peacock to the list.
“You are a great writer, you should take all the time you need.”
I appreciate the sentiment but that ‘s a very dangerous string of words to send me. As the patron deity of procrastination and self-loathing I can put off writing a chapter and feel like shit about it indefinitely.
“Honestly dude, we love these stories from you, but I personally think you should look after yourself first and foremost before you even think about posting more, theres no reason to overwork yourself/cause undue stress :D”
Another great sentiment. If only not writing didn’t cause me an equal amount of stress as actually trying to hit a deadline.
When will Naruto meet au ?”
It’s coming up, though not in an immediate chapter. The snakes will be seen again soon to start us on that path.
“for as long as this story has been going, and how frequent and rather high quality the chapters are, honestly I wondered how you kept up with your life.
it’s good to know you’re taking a break to get everything together especially when things are this chaotic world wide. be it corona, protesters getting ***up, riots or who knows what’s next. take your time but stay safe as you do get things set up for your self and the others you chose to help.
A great story is well worth the wait and cliff hangers are something we all should be acclimated to. but still sadly people stilL bitch over them.
stay safe, stay sound and help out.
-Whispers of an espurr
To be perfectly honest, I have no idea how I did it either- both the writing and everything else. Think the fact that I don’t really have a life probably helped significantly. Disconnected and packed up my gaming rig yesterday so now I just have to uninstall Youtube from my phone and I should be distraction-free.
Thank you, make sure you stay safe too.
“The chapter was great, so now Konoha will learn of Tsukuyomis identity, looking forward to the reactions. Orochimaru is acting strange as always, with the exception that he normally wears his old face when he changes the body, so calling him Sasukemaru was a bit strange. Hanabi getting her own team and starting on the reformations is also interesting, that her team of wolves takes on the less then desirable trait of Narutos workaholic self is a bit funny.
To your AN, all the best for your future plans, if the story gets set a bit on the back burner it’s no problem, reallife always comes first.”
I referred to him as “Sasukemaru” specifically because Orochimaru has not- yet- modified Sasuke’s body in any way. Everyone in Naruto’s apartment is seeing Sasuke walking around.
Like parent like child.
“Awesome chapter as always! Looking forward to him revealing his true form/nature to Hanabi. She’s a smart girl, she’ll probably take it well, then do a Mai or something.”
-Senyor Fier Mensheir
Why do I have the strangest suspicion that “do a Mai” is being used as a negative connotation?
“Well a person (who I won’t name) basically told me to tell writers exactly what u think (they used this logic to spam my stories) so here it is.
Everyone in this Naruto universe isn’t an a*** basically.
I want Mai to die seriously along with Tsume.
Naruto and Haku are weird together.
I loved the beginning with the whole leaving Naruto plot but when you added the wolves and all these of their storylines it made me disappointed.
I hope this review /rant helps!”
I will never understand the hate for Mai and Tsume.
Naruto isn’t with Haku and as I’m streamlining things she won’t end up with him in any capacity. A pity, really, but compared to some of the other things being cut it’s relatively minor.
Not sure how having more story could disappoint you but as mentioned above I’ve cut out a lot of my plans so that things are more streamlined and Naruto-centric. Hopefully my readers prefer that.
I’d like to thank you all for your overwhelming support. I appreciate all the well-wishes I’ve received in the last two weeks. I’m still trying to do my best to get chapters out at the same rate as best I can, I’ve just been really busy trying to get things in order. I hope to have a handle on everything soon enough before I end up just making larger messes of things but all we can really d ois see how everything plays out.
Until I next have your attention,
