Author has written 7 stories for Naruto.
Some parts of my stories I love, and some parts I hate. I am learning as I go. I post them online because I enjoy reading other people's stories, and I hope that someone might get some joy from reading my mine.
But at the end of the day, I write my stories for me. I make no promises about how long it will take me to update them, reviewing my chapters with 'UPDATE THIS!' will not make me write any faster. I have a life outside of fanfiction, and I hope you do too.
I also (usually) know exactly what direction my stories are heading towards before I even post the first chapter. In true Shakespearean fashion I believe there are only two types of stories that are believable; comedies and tragedies. Comedies are light hearted, are allowed to be out of character (within reason), and end with the couple getting together. Tragedies are heavy and dark, and usually do not end happily. So, no, I won't add an extra chapter onto my drama where everything ends 'happily ever after', no matter how much you sob in your review. Sorry, if it doesn't work for me, I can't write it.
Those things being said, I love each and every one of your reviews, whether praising or critiquing (as long as it is respectful). Unlike some other authors, I don't care how long or short your reviews are, even a simple 'good story' is most appreciated :)
I'm only here for Naruto fiction, I don't read or write anything else. I love this community, and the freedom that it gives us to make our favourite characters and settings into whatever we want them to be. I like to take advantage of this to it's full extent, trying to stay away from canonical pairings, and enjoying something different for a change. If I could encourage you to one thing, it would be to give pairings that you had never imagined a go. I have read some incredible Kimimaro x Sakura fiction, and I have written my own Jiraiya x Sakura below. Give it a go, you might find you really like it!
Good luck with your own writing, and I hope you can find some enjoyment in mine :)
STORIES IN THE PIPELINE:
What I'm working on currently:
She didn’t know who he was. Didn’t know his name. Didn’t know his age. Didn’t know what he did for a living. She didn’t know anything about him. All she knew was that she was currently experiencing the most intense pleasure she had ever felt in her life. And he was giving it to her.
Plot Summary: Every Thursday afternoon, Kakashi has sex. It's wild and full of passion...and it's with a woman he doesn't even know. A woman with pink hair and jade eyes, and an astonishing ability to avoid eye contact. She initiated the rendezvous months ago, but he still doesn't know her name and they've barely spoken more than two words. At first, Kakashi thinks he's hit the jackpot. He's been offered no-strings sex on a plate, and he doesn't even have to engage in meaningless small talk to get it. He's living every man's dream. Or so he thinks. Pretty soon Kakashi begins to realise that sex without intimacy is not as fun as it seems...
The Female of the Species: Multiple pairings but mainly will be either ItaSaku or Kimi(maro)Saku, not decided yet. Fic Based on the poem The Female of the Species by Rudyard Kipling. Will also contain SasuSaku, KakaSaku. Multiple chapter fic, will be a MAMMOTH fic that will probably take a very long time to write, as it will span over many years of Sakura's life (hence the many pairings . . . no, I wouldn't make her quite so slutty, don't worry). Dark angst-ridden fic which will eventually focus mainly on Sakura's dramatically transformed personality and loyalties.
Plot Summary: A life full of love and then loss has made Sakura a cynic to love. Till she discovers a love she never thought would be possible again, even more powerful than ever before. But fate is cruel, and when her heart is ripped to shreds yet again, Sakura becomes a hollow shell, a shadow of her former self. Then one day an incident of self-preservation uncovers a dormant force inside her that awakens a power that no one ever thought possible. A force more powerful than the revered Uchiha and Jinchuuriki combined. Fleeing her native village Sakura embarks on a new life as a dangerous missing-nin, and with her new-found power crushes all who stand in her way. But someone is watching her. Someone with a power to rival her own. And when the two come face to face the girl who had resigned herself to never loving again is suddenly sucked into a black hole of the darkest and most dangerous affair in shinobi history. Their combined powers and intense connection make them an unstoppable force leaving death and destruction in their wake, and all hope of good defeating evil seems lost for ever. But when a love long forgotten impossibly resurfaces, which side will she choose? Good . . . or Evil?
Coming at some stage...
A Life Forgotten: NejiSaku. Multi-chapter or One-shot, not sure yet.
Plot Summary: Sakura has failed at being a kunoichi, ridiculed by her peers and turned away by her friends and her shishou. But what is left for a used and abused kunoichi whose only skill is to seduce for a living? Yes, Sakura has become a prostitute. Living in the slums of Konoha and servicing the village's little known and well hidden seedy underworld, she has escaped the humiliation of confronting the faces of her past everyday, but at what cost? Day after day of giving her body to endless strangers but keeping her heart locked securely in an impenetrable safe inside her, and facing the inevitable prospect of a life forever without love, she believes this is her only future. But what happens when one of those faces from her past unknowingly shows up at her door? Can they help each other make a new start, and both learn to love again? Or is Sakura in too deep?
The Underneath: SasuSaku / KakaSaku. Multi-chapter. Angst/Romance.
Plot Summary: Sakura Haruno’s life is everything she ever dreamed it would be. She’s head medic at Konoha Hospital, apprentice to the Fifth Hokage, she has lots of successful friends, and she is married to her childhood crush, the man of her dreams. At least, that is the image that is portrayed to everyone else. Beneath the surface however, Sakura’s life is hell. The dream-life that she had strived for her whole life was just that – a dream. In reality, her friends are shallow self-absorbed gold-diggers, her job is stressful, and she’s struggling to cope at work with her many recent absences. Absences that are becoming frequently necessary due to the many bruises and injuries she has been receiving lately. For beneath the mask of glamour, success, and beauty, Sakura has found herself trapped in a web of lies, neglect, and abuse, inflicted upon her by her controlling masochistic husband, a master of manipulation and pretence. But someone else has noticed the charade, and is deeply troubled by her suffering. Someone who cares for her more deeply than she ever imagined, and as Sakura soon discovers, he will stop at nothing to free her from the clutches of a man hell-bent on keeping her under his control forever.
