The Tale of The Utterly Gutsy Shinobi: Naruto knew something was up the moment he landed in the strange forest; being sucked into the sky should have been his first clue. How's a shinobi supposed to adapt to such a strange new environment? Easy, one step at a time.
Edit @ 8th December 2013: (n)th number of patch done for this story. It's been quite an overhaul. So enjoy a more polished and well-rounded read.
Rough synopsis (Also spoilers):
After the battle with Pain, Naruto is transported to Earthland after a malfunction with the Anima. Having no clue as to how he came to another dimension, he struggles to adjust to his recent discovery, and in his ensuing anger, destroys part of the forest where he found himself in. Feeling terrible after allowing his anger to get the better of him, he recovers, stunned but determined to find a way home.
His first few days are spent acclimatising himself to the new world. He meets his first few friends in the town of Camoa and Diligeon, who after being rejected from the first guild [Mermaid's Cove] he found, then point him towards another called Cait Shelter.
His initial meeting with its youngest member and her feline companion does not go off to the best start. Slowly, the trio begin to bond, and Naruto finds himself getting comfortable with his day-to-day routine in his new guild, but is sceptical that he does not feel entirely welcomed by the isolated community chiefed by their Guild Master, Roubaul. He brushes it off as part of him being the third member of the guild to have joined from the outside. Their first mission ends in shambles, but the three reaffirm their committment to help each other and grow stronger as a bonafide team.
It is only weeks later before Naruto discovers a new organisation [The Ninth Circle] who declares an interest in him courtesy of of an unstable individual known as Stange. Stange shows interest in his potential, having seen the destruction he had wrought in the forest near the town of Camoa. Naruto is found out to not be from this world, whom Stange initially implies that he is from Edolas. The man is intrigued to learn that he is not, before suddenly leaving with a vague notion that he has information on other worlds. Naruto is frustrated at his failure to learn more.
Three years pass.
Naruto is older and more experienced, and barring his first mission with his team, has accomplished a decent record of missions under their belt, but they fly under the radar due to how small and unknown their guild is. There's isn't much that could faze him in this world, and he grows more and more comfortable with the routine he has with his team. In the time skip, he has slowly been accruing information on how to return home from his network of contacts. He then finds information pertaining to The Ninth Circle, but it leads him to a faraway town near the borders of Fiore. He is reluctant to go and leave his team alone.
This immediately follows a relaxing weekend in Akane Resort for the trio. Naruto is unable to find a connecting train to Hargeon, and is left stranded in Magnolia during their annual Magnolia Harvest Festival. At Wendy's behest, the team stays for the night and Naruto and Wendy visit Fairy Tail. After initially being denied entry, he develops a budding friendship with Mirajane the next day, but is unaware that Wendy has an ulterior motive during this visit. He follows Mirajane back to her guild and sees Wendy being confronted by an irate Gajeel. Naturally, Naruto steps in. The ensuing fights ends wholly in Naruto's favour, and before others could enter the fray, Makarov stops it altogether.
A tense meeting ensues between Naruto and the Fairy Tail mages, but Makarov is flippant about the entire thing, even after angering Naruto with a callous remark about Wendy. The tension thickens between Naruto and Erza, but disappears entirely when it is made to seem that Erza is punishing Wendy for Naruto's actions. In the end, Naruto and Erza come to an understanding and Erza, in an effort to save face, proudly declares a friendship between both their guilds.
Weeks pass after the event at Magnolia, and Naruto is called into Chief Roubaul's office. Over the years, their relationship has devolved to the point of only exchange pleasantries; terse but cordial. Roubaul calls him out on it. A fierce discussion ensues, with Naruto unhappy with the way Roubaul has treated Wendy. It ends with Naruto undertaking a mission with the Light Alliance to destroy Nirvana and stop Oracion Seis... and a sucker punch as Roubaul not-so-discreetly implied that he knew about his status as a jinchuuriki. He then asks Naruto not to let his faith waver in the presence of Nirvana, or else the evil within him would corrupt and devour him whole.
Staggered by the implications, he leaves without a word.
The mission to destroy Nirvana begins in earnest. Unknown to the rest, even his teammates, Naruto has his own objectives to complete, after being tasked to help destroy Nirvana by Chief Roubaul. After the briefing with the Light Alliance at Master Bob's summer mansion, the rest board The Christina, an airship owned by the Master of Blue Pegasus. Naruto leaves a clone aboard with his team and leaves to scout for his separate objective. He is later ambushed by the Flying Hellfish, an assassination guild under the thumb of Oracion Seis. Similarly, the Light Alliance is ambushed aboard the airship, and Naruto is helpless to do anything as The Christina explodes with the rest still onboard. The survivors, injured and weary, are immediately pounced upon and defeated by a full strength Oracion Seis.
Brain takes Wendy and Charle with him to revive Jellal, but in the battle, Angel falls to Gray, spent after sustaining her Celestial Spirit Gemini during the ambush. He then leaves her in a perpetual state of near death.
When Naruto arrives at the scene of the explosion, the Light Alliance is in shambles with their two major players, Erza and Jura, half-dead. The rest round on him and accuse him of having an ulterior motive in the mission. Exhausted and worried for his own team, he finally relents and explains his other objective. Many remain unconvinced, but Angel sort of vouches for his story. In return for information, she begs Naruto to kill her. Despite the initial arguments from the others, he agrees, but does not go through with it at the end.
The others remain wary of him when they plan their next objective to rescue Wendy and Charle. They break off in their own groups and it leaves him alone. Unknown to the rest, one of his clones had already encountered Hoteye, and he prepares himself for his next confrontation.
*Up to Chapter 14 only: Those Who Fight.
A Gritty Reboot: A surprising discovery led Harry to question the fine line between normality and the supernatural. Drawing inspiration from the generation's brightest minds, he sought to answer the proverbial question. Was he a mutant or some sort of humanoid alien? Complete
A sequel is not in the works. While it does sound appealing to pull something like Jbern's 'The Inner Eye of Harry Potter' and chronicle the life with a chapter for every year, I neither have the patience nor the talent required to detail all of the seven years of Hogwarts. Though introducing a masked vigilante on Wizarding Britain does sound pretty enticing.
