*~*~*~*~*~* BtB Series in order*~*~*~*~*~*

BtB Fic Icon by Okami-Rayne BREAK TO BREATHE
Neji has always been in control. There's just one problem. It's killing him - and only Shikamaru can tell. But sometimes being pulled back from the edge is just as dangerous as being pushed there. Shikamaru/Neji (YAOI)

OTC icon by Okami-Rayne ON THE CUSP
Corralled into troublesome celebrations, Shikamaru learns that Birthdays can do more than bring people together or push people away. Sometimes they can bring people back - pulling the Past with them. (Yaoi/het)

Requiem Icon by Okami-Rayne:bulletblack: REQUIEM
- Death is a fate we all share...but its aftermath can leave us divided. In the shadow of Asuma's death the shinobi of Konoha find that grief, unlike death, isn't just a thief in the night; but a night in itself. (Shikamaru, Shikaku, Inoichi, Chouza + ft. Choji, Ino, Kurenai) [Multi-chapter]

Under These Scars Icon by Okami-Rayne:bulletblack: UNDER THESE SCARS :new:
- Fate’s changed the game but it’s not over between the players. With Kusagakure’s mission as the final round, Neji’s agenda is finding his freedom. Shikamaru’s agenda is forgetting his fear. But when an old and unfinished game threatens to pull Shikamaru back into the shadows of his past, Neji must make an impossible choice; his own destiny or Shikamaru’s darkness. NejiShika, ShikaNeji [SEQUEL to Break to Breathe][multi-chapter]

While I have not read your story yet, you have another fan due to TV tropes. :)


First heard of your story there, went to the story itself, and since it has Neji in it and the great reception it has...I'll get to reading it one day. :) . I am sure I'll enjoy.


Neji has been my favorite character for almost as long as I have been a Naruto fan, eight years now.

Just a thought that I had about your amazing series (I've read it multiple times and I never get tired of it): have you ever considered publishing the BtB series in the form of e-books? I'm sure that everyone would love to get a copy that maybe even includes all your beautiful artwork! As I said, it's just a thought :)

I forgot to write this in the review for chapter 13:
Whenever I feel like imagining a "happy ending" for Shikamaru and Neji after BtB, I imagine team Gai and the rookie 9 bar Sasuke having lunch together or celebrating something and they suddenly hear Neji say something funny to Shikamaru, who laughs, and they all turn to look at him like- Neji... made a joke?? Neji is... funny??? !! ????? does-not-compute ?????
So the scene where Kiba laughs surprised at Neji's joke made me very happy.
Thank you :heart:

...Still feel like a spammer. I could send you notes instead if you want? Guess what! I made a new picture for you! This one's about Kurenai. It's called "Will This Ever Get Easier?" Much love to you! -3- (...that's supposed to be a kiss) Oh wait, here: :wink:  Wow I can't believe It took me this long to realize I could do that. Sweating a little...

Hi again! ....I feel like I'm spamming. 0.o
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I made another fan art picture for Under These Scars. It's called "Your Move". I hope you like it! (It took me a couple days to make, so I'm gonna go pass out now. X_X)

 Hi! I just read your new chapters, and as usual you've done a stunning job. Genma and Kakashi's interactions had me on the verge of tears at one point, and Shikamaru's frustration with Neji was very palpable. I'm loving Ino and Kiba a lot, and the Yamanaka's have such a keen feeling of despair around them. I simply adore the sadistic way you squeeze so many feelings out of me! :3

Hey, Rayne!
I was talking to a friend of mine about BtB, and I was trying to explain Neji's struggle with Need and Necessity. However, I speak Spanish, and while in English these are two words that could mean the same, we only have one word in Spanish- “necesidad”.

So, trying to find a different word to express Need, I found “anhelo” (a vehement wish). I looked it up later in a Spanish dictionary to make sure I had the correct word, and I found out that “anhelar” (“anhelo” is the substantive, “anhelar” is the verb) used to have a meaning we no longer use:
Now it means “to wish vehemently for something (or someone)”. And it used to mean “to breathe with difficulty”.
I thought it was a beautiful coincidence. Like, when Neji “anhela” (needs, wishes strongly), he can't breathe properly. Needs to have Shikamaru to breathe.

Aren't languages a beautiful thing?
Anyways, I thought you'd like to know, if only for the curious coincidence ^^.

Love,
Ysvel

PS: just found out you have a tumblr and decided to stalk you in here as well as in ff.net and dArt... hope that's alright xD
