Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: Chapter 95 opens with Kakashi telling Shikako "Do you have enough explosive notes? You might only be able to level a very small country." [[spoiler: Guess what happens when Shikako and Aoba run into some Jashin cultists.]]


* FanPreferredCouple: As of the Kusa Chunin Exams Arc, Shikako/Gaara has been gaining traction amongst the fanbase. Shikako/Sasuke is it's rival.

*** Jirobou - [[spoiler:Neji. He is WeakButSkilled, and his individual skills make him the best fit for TheBrute, who is UnskilledButStrong in contrast.]]
*** Kidomaru - [[spoiler:Ino, and Shikako herself. Shikako is a talented GuileHeroine to match his EvilGenius, and she works well with Ino due to their family techniques.]]
*** Tayuya - [[spoiler:Shikamaru and Choji. Of all the Squad, they work together the best and can combine their BrainsAndBrawn qualities, which is important given she is the Four's second-strongest.]]
*** Sakon & Ukon - [[spoiler:Naruto. He's the strongest of the Retrieval Team; also his Shadow Clones and improved strategic sense can both outmatch the twins and counter their unique Kekkei Genkai.]]
* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: About the only major criticism this story gets is that the plot ''hasn't'' changed much. Even though Shikako has good reasons for not wanting to try and change certain things, TheStationsOfTheCanon have thus far been followed to a large degree. Variations of each story arc basically pertain to "things are a little better for the heroes", such that people are almost ''hoping'' for the ButterflyOfDoom to kick in (despite Shikako's attempts to avert it), there isn't much original material (yet), and InSpiteOfANail (though lampshaded) is in full effect). This may finally get a subversion with the story's [[spoiler:version of the Sasuke Retrieval Arc.]]

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: A few years after its debut, newcomers to this story have come to criticise it for certain story elements of the Naruto Self-Insert: reincarnation-into-twin-of-canon-character, replacing Sakura on Team 7, not acting to more drastically change the timeline, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking first-person POV]], etc... Fact is, ''Dreaming Of Sunshine'' itself was the pioneer for these story elements, most other stories playing FollowTheLeader; while not the first story to use at least some of the elements, it was the first story to actually put them all together, and other stories with greater differences from canon are simply further evolution of the formula (leaving DOS newcomers to be spoiled for more original plotlines in the genre).
* TearJerker: [[spoiler:Ino's catatonic state]] in Chapter 62.
** In retrospect, how tired Shikako seems when Naruto confronts her about killing their enemies. "Then find a better way Naruto. Because I dont know what it is."
** Shikako flashing back to [[spoiler: her time in Tsukiyomi]] also count. Seeing how much the events of the story have damaged her really pulls on the heartstrings.
** Shikako and Shikamaru's fight in chapter 98.
** It's implied in chapter 16 of Sunshine Sidestories that Kakashi feels really guilty about Shikako [[spoiler: getting kidnapped.]]
** The loss of [[spoiler: Shikamaru's arm.]] Pretty much all of Chapter 114 really.
** * The entire Hospital Arc is Shikako and [[spoiler: Sasuke trying to save their sensei, from a medical condition from his [[MagicalEye Sharingan]],]] despite the fact he has given up on life.
