Author has written 3 stories for Naruto.
Holy balls, that was a long hiatus.
Anyway, I'm back... kinda... So, yeah, I've been busy with life and such, nothing much I care to elaborate on, but still. I thank those of you who reviewed, despite my stories having gone this long without a new chapter. If not for those (and my recent bouts of excruciating boredom), I'd probably not be writing this now, so there's that. Aaaand now I've come to realize that I have no real explanation for the apparent abandonment of my stories... Meh, I'm sure it'll work out well in the end.
So, clearly some updates for The Fox and Boar are long past due... And as much as I'd love to upload the 10k word chapter I have on my desktop, a recent series of (awesome) ideas and a twinge of writer's block/boredom made me reconsider, well, the entire first part of the story. And, due to that boredom, I actually put down all my thoughts in a document (the file so far has over 2k words... which is quite a bit, considering it's broken fragments in list format of vague ideas I want to incorporate later on), only to realize I have, like, 8 "sections" to get into... Some of which expand on core elements from the first edition, while some create huge plot changes, and so on... And that's only a portion of all the major stuff I want to get down in this fic... So, yeah, I've been busy typing and whatnot. Too bad for you lot, though, since the promised update has been delayed... again... But! In the process of getting stumped by The Fox and Boar, I came up with loads of new stuff for both other fics, so there's that. But since my oldest is my most popular, I'mma go ahead and keep working on the new edition, and not even dedicate time to updating the other two until I have at least 20k words down. That seems fair, sorta.
Right... So, if you're still reading this, I've decided that having a beta would be, iono, freaking awesome at the moment since I'm so scattered with ideas (and real life, but who cares about that...). If anyone wants to consider helping me sort ideas (and to have access to chapters days before I post them), send me an email/PM to let me know. Other than all of that, be patient for a new chapter sometime soon...
Fox and Boar: (Major rewrite in progress) Naruto's life is in danger on a mission and Ino does the only thing she can think of to help him. Unfortunately, she sees more than she should and comes face to face with the Kyuubi. Soon after, Naruto is told of a prophecy where he must decide the fate of his world, and eventually all worlds. Naruto must sacrifice much in order to protect everything he has worked for and loves. With the help of a demon, a lone boy must stop the most dangerous people on the face of the earth, but is it too late? Has a once trusted former ally sealed the world's fate instead? Read and find out. Watch as a boy matures into a man with the help of those who care for him. But remember that nothing is ever as it truly seems. (NarutoxIno) Yeah... this description will prolly be needing a rewrite soon enough, not to mention a possible change in title... still haven't figured that out yet...
The Falling Leaves: A squad of genin is sent to retrieve a captured teammate and some nearly die in the process. Now a boy must search for his own destiny as he meanders through life with no real purpose until someone offers him a chance at something new. Naruto, a low ranking ninja from the heart of Konoha, sets out on a journey with his perverted teacher in order to become powerful enough to help his friend escape from the darkness. But what happens when an enemy ninja follows them on their path? (NarutoxTayuya)
Uzumaki Naruto: Master of the Elements: A group of villagers attack Naruto one evening and one man steps up to defend the poor child. Tenzou, given the codename 'Yamato', takes on the responsibility of caring for the the young Jinchuuriki. And with it, comes the promise of change for our blonde hero. Naruto faces many challenges on his path to be acknowledged, but at least this go around, he has the support of someone else. Watch as the village outcast grows and flourishes as a ninja under the tutelage of a competent sensei and masters a phenomenal new ability the shinobi world has yet to see.
