Oh, no, you think, she started a sidefic again instead of writing the main thing. Well, yeah. Sorry. I'm having the writer's block of the century. Teamworky drabbles are the most I can do at the moment. . (encouragement is okay, whining because I should hurry up is not. We're clear? Thank you.)
SO! This is going to be a series of drabbles-and-ficlets (meaning SHORT), spreading from the moment where Teamwork's timeline diverged from canon to just before "The Night". It was born because someone reminded me that canon-Naruto doesn't have this kind of relationship with his Kyuubi, and I realized that even though I've SAID that the shift didn't just happen in one day, I've never yet really SHOWN it. And then I realized it was an opportunity to show the way other things evolved, too, so I ran with it. I'm having fun.
The drabbles are in chronological order. They start just after Naruto and Kakashi bring Sasuke home, after the fight at the waterfall. I'm not detailing what really happened during the fight; THAT, hopefully, will come out during Teamwork 2.
THERE WILL BE MENTIONS OF FOX SEX IN HERE, as in, Kyuubi having sex in his original body (not bestiality because no human is involved). You were warned. It's not graphic, promise, and not meaningless either, and YES I'll warn you in advance. There will also be blood and gore. There will be fluff and humor. There will be Naruto being a typical teenage guy. (mm yaoi and het and yuri and -- well, damn, that's all. I really need to find new kinks to play with, these are starting to feel so ... normal. XD)
There will be fic, when I'm done babbling at myself. ...Here, I'm done.
For his thirteenth birthday, Naruto gets a concussion.
'... urgh, not any less creepy than last time.' That's not the hospital anymore, is it? Greenish walls, sickly green light, water sloshing around his ankles -- or something that looks like water. But it's thicker, heavier. Like clear blood -- or like drool. Ew.
Red eyes stare down at him, from so high above it makes him queasy to guess the exact distance -- or maybe it's only because of the nauseatingly malevolent chakra. /What do you want this time/
'Nothing. Got here by accident.'
'Yeah, I'm not especially happy to see you either, furball.'
Flash of teeth in the dark. /You wouldn't be that brave without the cage, brat./
The tone is offending enough that he almost lets the fox provoke him into getting closer, to prove him wrong. But he's not quite that stupid.
He wakes up to Sakura shaking him awake. Behind them, Kakashi is holding down a sneering, heavily bandaged up Sasuke in place. So the bastard won't apologize for knocking him out, eh? No problem. Naruto will just get his due the painful way. He forgets about the meeting, and pounces.
