If any of the formatting looks funky that would be because this site has a funky way of handling fics. and as i consider that an unnecessary pain in the ass, don't expect regular updates here.

The Fall of Icarus Explanation: 06.13.2012
'Fall' is a drama, not just a Neji/Naru. If you aren't a slow world/mood-building-character-analysis type of reader then this is not the story for you. To clarify, 'Fall' is about Neji and the Hyuuga in general. It's about Hyuuga culture, how others see them, why they act the way they do, what Neji was so pissed and frustrated about in the beginning due to Hyuuga culture, how others perceive Neji or other individual Hyuuga, how Neji has changed, and most of all why Naruto's offer to change the Hyuuga struck a cord in Neji, and helped along the crush Neji has on Naruto.
In general: I don't read fanfiction for this series, so i don't really know, and really don't care what the 'canon' pairings are. previous experience with multiple fandoms have taught me that the 'canon' makes no sense. most of the time, whoever is in the first 3 episodes are who ends up paired together, whether their personalities are compatible or not. there is a lot more to a relationship than just proximity in my opinion. that being said, i started writing Fall back in '04 after waiting more than half the series for a character who really resonates with Naruto or Kakashi -- which i thought was sad, considering their team is the main one. all my pairings are based on 'evidence of it working out' as presented in the manga or the anime (not filler eps).
Confession: I fully admit that Shino/Tokuma is a guilty pleasure of mine. I never write couples that don't have any evidence of working, but in this case i didn't see any evidence against them either.
Fall Hiatus?: Some parts of chapters are specifically to explain more about Hyuuga dynamics or advance the story; i don't always use Neji to do that. The problem is, readers are so caught up on which characters are speaking and if they like them or not, that those readers are not paying any attention to what those characters are saying. That is exactly why this story doesn't work as fanfiction. It needs a clean slate. At this point I don't know if I'll update this as a fanfic again, but the original version will be on my livejournal account (link above). Friend me to see it. Thank you for your time and support.
