Authors notes:

Origin:
Back in 2009 I found out that Shikamaru was born one day ahead of Ino. I thought this was adorable and really wanted to do a story about it. A big part of the idea behind this is that Shikamaru is a genius. I mean, he knows so much, and because of this I think it would be so cute if he wouldn’t be able to figure out this mystery  something that all other would have gotten.

Process:
As I mention, it was from 2009. When I first got the idea I sat down, wrote some notes and, yeah… it kinda stopped there. Then, years later, I picked it up again and was finally able to finish  – and that during CampNaNoWriMon July 2014.

Triva:
This story was supposed to be a one shot, but then turned out to be three parts.

The plan was to complete it before thier birthdays in 2009, but that never happened. In 2012 and 2013 I picked it up again with the same intentions, but I was never able to get it do. Then, in 2014, I finally did it. However, it was July, and I decided to wait so that I could put them up so that the last chapter would be on their birthday.

Pintrest:
I made some pins while working on the story. Feel free to check them out:
