The Obligatory News Update!
Monday, June 28th, 2010: I've noticed a slight uptick in traffic and quite a few messages from people pleading with me to update. I know it's been quite a while, but I have not abandoned the fandom. I am just VERY busy with life and all writing, fanfiction or not, has taken a back seat to my final year of my second degree, work, family, and such. I write when I can and when my muse cooperates. While the newest chapters of part three of the Shinri/Soutou series are written, I keep going back to change them as things in the manga change. I can be a slave to canon sometimes, and I don't want to completely fubar a character if I can help it. Your support is welcome, and I will be back someday, I just can't be sure exactly when.
Some Stuff I Think You Should Know
Emi here. Thanks for stopping by. I'm a longtime reader of Fanfiction, and often review, but find myself now yearning to join the ranks of the published. I have several ideas bouncing around in my loony head, so bare with me as they ooze out into digital medium. I'm currently a student, and working, but I hope to keep updating at least once a month. Though not a writer by trade or training, I fancy myself a decent storyteller if only because I spend too much time reading. I'm an artist by training, and hopefully soon by trade, as can be witnessed by my DeviantArt account.
My primary fandom, and the subject of my current story, is Naruto, though my tastes are broad and flexible. I tend to learn about good stories via word of mouth, and am willing to give any subject, pairing, crossover, crack fic a chance if well written. I am a bit of a stickler for canon, though I understand that if I want a story to follow the original exactly, I should go read the manga.
I fancy myself fairly proficient in Japanese, though my first language is English. Since most readers on this site are also English speakers, I promise I won't confound you with inappropriately scattered Japanese phrases. I will restrain myself, and maintain a level of Japanese language knowledge that the average or casual Anime fan will understand. No need to impress anyone, since it will more likely just make my stories less readable.
I enjoy music, reading, movies, and all of the other things a healthy and productive member of society is supposed to enjoy. Just don't tell anyone.
The Book Shelf
真理 Shinri - "Truth" Sakura's humdrum life as a Konoha medic-nin takes a turn for the worse, though admittedly less boring, thanks in part to a mysterious gift unintentionally left to her by an ancestor.
Rated: M for language and the last chapter
Timeline: Canon until two years into time skip.
Main Character: Sakura
Main Pairing: Ok, it's VERY one sided LeexSaku right now. This first part has no real pairing and no smex. Sorry. COME BACK LATER.
争闘 Soutou - "Struggle" Even with the companionship of her trusted canine, Sakura is finding the life of a missing-nin difficult and unforgiving, until a chance encounter with a feared enemy offers her the opportunity to discover help in the most unlikely of places.
Genre: Action/Adventure/Drama/Romance (Oh my!)
Rated: T, never got to the part I thought I would. Try part three.
Timeline: Continuation of Shinri, less than one year prior to Shippuuden. Maintains general timeline and spoilers up to current manga chapter (454).
Main Character: Sakura
Main Pairing: Itachi x Sakura
A Special Treat: It's Kattan! Awww!
The Cutting Room Floor
Hesitation – Itachi only needed the final order, and he and his ANBU team would carry out their final and most morbid of missions. But the Sandaime hesitated, and that one brief moment was all the Uchiha clan needed to make their move, throwing Konoha into an endless and bloody civil war.
Main Character: Itachi and Sakura (shifting pov)
Main Pairing: Itachi x Sakura, duh.
Timeline: Begins with Itachi age 20, Sakura 15.
Update June 25th: Will be rewritten and chapter three will be posted soon, I promise!
Grey Brain Matter
Shinri will become at least a Trilogy. Possibly more if my muse monkey cooperates. Part Two is called 争闘 Soutou "Struggle". Part Three will be called... dunno yet. The last part will be called 希望 Kibou "Hope".
Candlelight - It was a status symbol for rich Shinobi clans to pay for their daughters to attend Kunoichi school and become the wives of powerful Shinobi. But Sakura didn’t care for finding a husband, or being obedient. Sakura wanted to become a Shinobi herself, a seemingly impossible task for any woman.
AU: Narutoverse but the culture more closely resembles that of feudal Japan. More emphasis on nobility, money and tradition, no female Shinobi, etc.
Main character: Sakura
Timeline: Begins with Sakura age 8.
Porcelain - Konoha is safe and prospering, but at the cost of the lives of everyone Sakura had ever held dear. Broken and empty, Sakura wastes her days fantasizing about what she would have done differently, until Utatane Koharu, on her death bed, out of guilt gives Sakura the opportunity to do just that.
Genre: Drama/Action with a twist of romance
Main character: Sakura
Timeline: Begins with Sakura age 26, then back to the beginning of the series.
