So if you are interested, give it a try!
New reader here, recently found this story last week, finished it in about 5-6 days, and I made this account recently just to say this.
I don't know Naruto lore that much aside from the games (PS2 Ultimate Ninja, I think) and some episodes from pre-shippuden, but your fanfiction about this fandom got me hooked to some Naruto stuff that everytime I'm reading this, I always have a wikia page of Naruto ready so that I can fully immerse myself in the story with extra additional info from the canon lore from the wikia (such as characters, locations, skills/jutsu, etc)
All in all, I want to say that I wholly enjoy reading your stuff. Your "Asami" is (well, probably) a new and unique character who won't limit herself to stuff like some useless 'morality' and 'virtuous actions', and it is so fresh to see. Plus, the carnage, the blatant mockery towards her enemies, and her just being a literal goddess of death in a loli figure makes her my personal favorite character ever written in a fanfiction stories.
With all that said, I hoped you continued Asami's journey, for I'll always be on the lookout, just as others will...
Thanks for the nice words.
Btw, my new novel uses Asami as well.^^
Haha looks like im not the only pirate pillaging the wikia
@Rizon Don't tell anyone. Wikia was my best friend as well. I haven't even watched Naruto to the end.
I know me and I know you... and i know i'll certainly check it out
Welcome on board.
Tho I'm sad that you're discontinuing this one, I'll definitely show up.
I might one day continue, but I expect easily another 200 k words from the second part and that is a lot for a story with a small audience.
It's over again. RIP. Maybe I'll reread it for the sole purpose of helping you edit it next time OwO
Here a thank you sushi for being a wonderful reader. Thank you for your support.
I can't find quality naruto fanfics anywhere. The same is with novels with prideful, arrogant, and maybe even crazy MC's. They are avoiding my grasp. I shall find them, as they remind me of myself o.o
@Booper150 I think I understand now your avatar. XD
This book was godly
Glad you like it.
It's just a suggestion, but maybe change the name of the story? I dismissed it about 4-5 before I read it. It's a great story, one of the best I've read, and I find it a shame more people don't read it.
Of Para bellum?
@Assurbanipal_II while as proud Italian I started reading it only for the title as I really hated fanfics before this one, here latin is studied in our high school equivalent by a lot of people, I agree that with another title it might catch more the eyes of new readers.
@Assurbanipal_II I'd say rather something shocking. Not many know latin and not knowing what it means and too lazy to search for demotivates a reader. A suggestion would be "The Uchiha Princess of Annihilation" or something that makes you stop and click in a list with hundred of names.
@Heromzor I see. Five years Latin and Greek here on my side as well.
@Assurbanipal_II it sounds like one of our tipes of high school, we have specialized education for 5 years, well specialized is a big word as it isn't as specific as university.
@ForgetfulAtheist I think 5 years is fairly common across Europe for high school education. But, yes, I frequented indeed the liceo classico.
@Assurbanipal_II I did only one year of Latin in general school, there was only one profile that did Latin in high school. And I bet most don't even remember much, as is was one of those courses where you did nothing but a project for marks. If I'd have to guess most readers can't even identify it's Latin. Going even further in this assumption, they probably skip it thinking that it's written in Spanish or something.
@Heromzor Thanks for your observation. It is indeed helpful. Sadly, it seems that in today's times only senseless titles work.
@Heromzor only thinking this made me have an aneurism.
@ForgetfulAtheist Indeed, every Latinist turns in their grave if they hear that it is supposedly Spanish.
@Assurbanipal_II Well, this is just one idea. This story easily made it into my top 10 and if finished it will probably be in my top 5, maybe even top 3. This is why is saddens me so much to know that you put it on hiatus. So much potential for the story , Konoha being weakened and being attacked sparking a Forth Ninja war before cannon, neko sage mode making Asami more proactive, teasing and sadistic, Asami attacking and destoying Kumo while its forces attack Konoha, Naruto falling off his path because of Asami/the war, Sasuke remaining in Konoha, Danzo resorting to Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation and so many more ideas that work with your setting.
@Heromzor Well, I would have done it, but as said the numbers of my readers didn't justify the investment. We speak here about a story of 200 k words easily and that is honestly a lot that needs to be written. Lots of thinking, lots of polishing and as I go for quality and not for quantity my chapter take long to write.
@Assurbanipal_II That's why I'm suggesting changing the story name as a way to get more readers. I'm hoping that will motivate you to finish the story .
@Heromzor I appreciate your enthusiasm. I will think about it even when I have grown attached to the name.
@Assurbanipal_II yeah i also ignored this the first few times but i ran out of stuff to read so i went back cuz the cover seemed nice
"I came looking for copper, and i found gold"
This was one of the best fanfics i ever read, and the most likeable MC in narutoverse. Sad rhat this came to an end, but happy that i could enjoy ur author's skills. I'm surely going to read ur current work~
But really? You liked her? Can I ask you why?
@Assurbanipal_II Well, it's all my perspective but; the way she is resolute on her decisions and go through the end with them, the gap moe is also adorable, I rly enjoy how she can be both sweet and savage, her monologues are also funny...
And I can't help but to think that even though she's violent, she's a caring person on her own way, I mean... her mangekyou activated when her team died, so she rly cared about them, she was always willing to make the hard but necessary decisions, like killing the wounded to save the rest. Even though she wanted war, was for the sake of keeping Konoha safe and she went berserk cause she rly felt betrayed. IIcant help but enjoy her character, she has some faults but thats only normal.
I honestly would enjoy watching her becoming some kind of Empress for the Ame and controlling it while Pain and Konan kept playing god. Akatsuki could get a real army and become a real huge menace. The arc where she played general was enjoyable and gave a new perspective... wel, I loved all arcs!
Anywaaays... To resume it all, I got hooked. Read it all in one go, my only complain would be that I would enjoy reading even more, but well, im starting the other serie of urs. hahahaha
@Zukigi Thanks for taking the time and writing a comment. I appreciate your words. I particularly like that you enjoyed her general arc.
And, indeed, something like her taking over Ame and doing her own thing in the background because Pain and Konan are too busy playing god and angel was planned.
