"Spider Thread":

A former assassin is reborn in the Naruto world circa the Third Shinobi World War. Brash, impulsive, and very very self-involved, Tomoe decides to become a ninja and faces a sea of obstacles in order to get what she wants, provided she ever figures out what exactly that is.

Main Cast: a liar with sociopathic tendencies; a very touchy-feely Shisui; Itachi, who's trying his best, really; and Kakashi in the role of a long-suffering surrogate brother.

"This Transient, Floating World":

A rather down on her luck office worker, after a mishap in the reincarnation office, bullies god's employee into a better deal on her new life. Or so she thinks.

Cast: one girl who can't feel pain and thinks the Shinobi world ought to put itself in order or by god she will make it; one boy who insists she isn't stupid despite mounting evidence to the contrary; and a few parents in sore need of therapy.

Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language.

Ghost Stories by ViiA01 reviews
Sakura didn't believe in gods and monsters and demons. But when she is pushed down a well to unlock an ancient seal, Sakura has no choice but to play a centuries old game where the players aren't human. But these aren't the demons of myth, not twisted monsters, not minor gods. They're older, darker, than that. And they aren't the only ones with an agenda. MultiSaku.

Obelisk: Kingdom of Gods by VesperChan reviews
Entering the final kingdom, Sakura stands atop a castle of sand to face down the gods who first orchestrated the curse and began the bloody tradition of collecting human souls in a little black obelisk. Gladiators, Egyptian gods, and blood thirsty pharaohs paint a vivid picture on the inside of her mind as she sleeps, dreams, and struggles once again.

Sasori by Darkpetal16 reviews
It's not all that likely to be reborn in the Narutoverse. And it's definitely not likely to go back time in the Narutoverse after being reborn there. So then why, pray tell, does it still happen? AU / Sequel of Sakura / Time travel.

Monsters have come at least to feast on what is left of her bones and devour her wounded heart. Beyond the scars and bloodshed, her soul is beginning to fade under the dim lights of another enchanted speakeasy and ruby eyes.
