My favorite pairing for Naruto is NaruSaku, but it's followed closely by NaruHina. That being said, I'm not too big of a fan of harem stories, so you'll only see one or the other from me at a time. I've also got an incomplete NaruTen fic up for adoption, anyone who wants it just has to drop me a message.
One of my favorite characters of all time is Obito Uchiha. I relate to him a lot (Well, I wasn't crushed by a rock and then set out on a mission to bring my lost love back with a massive genjutsu; but in other ways we're similar!) So yeah, you can expect to see a lot of Obito in whatever Naruto fics I write; especially Altering Fate.
To anyone out there who is struggling as a writer, keep at it! Don't let others discourage you; just use their criticism to make yourself better. I've been writing fanfiction since I was six or seven years old (one of the first being a Dragon Ball fanfiction creatively titled "The Blue Ribbon Army" cause I was an imaginative little bastard) and I've never really stopped. Over the years, though, there have been many times when I figured it wasn't worth fooling with and I was tempted to stop. Now, almost fourteen years later, I'm glad I had the hobby. I'm definitely not the best writer in the world, but I think I'm pretty good, and that's because I always strive to stack up to my peers. If you see a good author, whether on the internet or in a book, analyze their writing style. You'll be surprised how much you'll pick up if you focus. Remember, you'll never improve if you don't push yourself! Having a kick-ass beta like Nokito-chan doesn't hurt either, haha.
Writer's block is a foul demon. Find something to fight it; don't let it consume you! Personally, I use excessively loud music to imagine the biggest plot points in my stories; then I work my way forward or backwards from there. You might have another trigger, make sure to experiment! Nothing feels better than kicking Writer's block in the balls- trust me on this one.
The cover art for Altering Fate is a scene from ACT II: Part 1. Kudos to my sister for her epic fanart! You can see more of her work at http://padfootspuppy.deviantart.com/
My grandma passed away October of 2013. She was such a big part of my life and was one of my biggest inspirations. The world is a lesser place without her, and I'll never stop missing her. Rest in peace, Nana, you've earned it.
Well, I'm sure you are all just sitting on the edge of your seat with interest about my profile, but I fear that I must wrap it up.
Have a good day, and to my fellow writers...
...May your pencils never leave the page!
