Being ignored and gazed at with hatred can lead someone to become a boisterous and loud orange-wearing shinobi, but it can also drive him to become a silent and invisible introvert. Of the two, Naruto takes the logical choice for a future in the Ninja World. Team Sai-Naruto-Sakura. No pairings. Future of bloodshed and grittiness assured.

The Twisted Family Tree reviews
Uzumaki D. Naruto knew it was wrong of him to steal money from that straw-hat wearing guy but he couldn't afford to go home empty-handed - that only lead to very little food and a lot of pain - so he decided to risk it. Even years later, he still wasn't sure if he regretted it or not. Young!Naruto Brother!Luffy SHP!Naruto DF!Naruto. Starts after Zoro joins Luffy.

Pulling Your Own Strings reviews
When Naruto came bursting into his office demanding to learn about puppets because they were 'super cool' and 'so badass' the Sandaime simply handed over a scroll detailing the little information Konoha had on the art. He didn't expect the boy to pursue it much further and he certainly didn't expect the boy to reinvent the skill all by himself. Puppeteer!Naruto Manipulative!Konoha

The Shadow Of A Flash reviews
The only thing Naruto hated more than the whispering behind his back was trying to live in his father's shadow. Sometimes, just sometimes, he wondered what life would be like if his father had sealed the Kyuubi instead of the Sandaime. AU. Minato lives. Quiet Naruto.
