The Name Rant
I really hate those Naruto stories where people insert OC's and give them Western names. Hello, people! This is Naruto- a show where everybody has some weird old Japanese name no matter how they look. If you want, you can borrow names from other anime. For all I care your OC could be named Kenshin, Megumi, or Ryuzaki, but whatever you do, DO NOT, and I repeat, DO NOT name them Kayla, Alexis, or Emily for that matter. If you want to use these names, go to fictionpress.com where such characters may be appreciated. If you still insist on using said names I suggest you could use a Japanese variation such as Kira, Areshi, or Emi. But seriously- NO ENGLISH NAMES! You ain't 4Kids people!
The Uchiha Corp Rant
Every time I read a Naruto AU fic that takes place in our beautiful 21st century world, I never fail to see the existence of an Uchiha Corp. It's cute at first, but then, it gets annoying. It's funny because if stuff in the Naruto world were paralleled into the real world, the Uchiha family would be nothing more than a bunch of cops. That's right, ya heard me. Cops. As in, The Fuzz, The Boys in Blue, and in the UK- Bobbies. There should be no Uchiha corp., because frankly, the Uchiha's just don't have that kind of cash. There's the possibility of an Uchiha Bakery, as there were an Uchiha couple who owned a rice cracker store, but it's just one of those ma and pa business establishments.
I can understand the existence of a Hyuuga Inc, but that's because it has already been established that the Hyuuga's are filthy-stinkin' rich. The proper structure of the Naruto world ala 21st century would be:
Hyuugas- rich corporate dudes
Uzumaki-Namikazes- politicians or military people
Sarutobis- politicians or military people
Akimichis- restaurant people or pharmacists
Inuzukas- pet store people or veterinarians
Aburames- entomologists (bug scientists)
Harunos- doctors or any other normal-person line of work
Rock Lee's family- gym instructors
TenTen's family- the ammo store people
Now, I'm not sure if you people notice this, but I've been flipping through several works to discover that everyone's favorite dog-boy is in fact a very versatile character- so versatile, that his character can be twisted almost as much as a bendy straw. You don't believe me? Well, read this list and see for yourself.
Best Friend!Kiba. Yeah. This is the most common type of Kiba there is. And my favorite. Almost everyone who writes a Naruto fic uses this type of Kiba. He is usually found in romance fics as Naruto's (or any other protagonist's) best friend and/or first friend, as opposed to the canon Naruto/Sasuke BFF-ness. Other uses for him include adventure, AU fics where he is the first friend that Naruto (or any other protagonist will make). He is loud, cheerful, and generally serves as a comic relief character. He also provides advice (when Naruto tries dating) and comfort (when said girl /het/ or Sasuke /yaoi/ crushes Naruto's feelings). Usual pairings for this Kiba are KibaHina (het) and ShinoKiba or KankuKiba (yaoi); but he can also be found as a single man (this one's for you girls).
Brother!Kiba. I'm guilty as charged of this one. In Naruto adoption fics, the Inuzuka family will occasionally adopt our favorite blond-haired kitsune (though Uchiha/Hyuuga adoptions are far more common). This Kiba is very much like Best Friend!Kiba, except now, Naruto (or your chosen protagonist) lives with him 24/7.
Lover!Kiba. While SasuNaru dominates as the premier Naruto pairing (I'm pretty sure this one is outnumbers all the NarutoxGirl fics), there is always a daring few who will write a KibaNaru. My favorite is Sister Yamanaka where Naruto is a girl named Naru and was adopted by Ino's family. True, it's not a yaoi, but I really enjoyed the way the author portrayed the slow yet gradual relationship between Kiba and "Naru". It's cute because those two bicker like an old married couple. :P Other popular Kiba pairings include KibaHina, ShinoKiba, and KankuKiba.
Evil!Kiba. Ah, the bane of many Kiba fans, myself included. While he's not evil in the sense that he's plotting world domination or some cliched crap like that, he's definitely no Mother Teresa. The complete and total opposite of Best Friend!Kiba, this Kiba is usually a homophobe (yaoi), a bully (dark/angst/tragedy fics), or one of Sasuke's cronies (occasionally in fandom, never gonna happen in canon).
All's Fair-haired in Love and War is in the process of being rewritten. I'm really sorry for the inconvenience.
