These are Naruto Stories that I feel are the absolute best out of all the rest that I've read. I spend about two hours a day reading, so I like to think I can spot a good one. Stories with massive amounts of OC's won't be in this C2. Be sure to set the rating to allow 'Mrated' fics to see the rest of the archive.
