Stories I've Beta-ed (and definitely recommend!):

'Mirage of Faded Pearls' by NessaMoon http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6389655/1/Mirage_of_Faded_Pearls (NaruHina fic)

'Fearless' by britata348 http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6884323/1/Fearless (NaruHina fic)

Other NaruHina Fanfic Recommendations:

Ah, NaruHina fanfics are my favourites, no doubt at all, and finding a well written one is such a nice feeling. If anyone's interested in seeing the stuff I like to read, check my 'Favourites' list below - every single writer on there has written at least one NaruHina fic that I was hugely impressed with and I'd highly recommend their work to anyone that's struggling to find something good.

Oh, and if that's not enough, have a look at Perpetual159's website and I can pretty much guarantee that you won't be disappointed - not only is she a fantastic NaruHina writer first and foremost, her site is well and truly a treasure trove of quality NaruHina fics all in one place and I can't thank her enough for the effort she put into gathering them. Makes my life so much easier when I'm searching for something fun to read! If there are any NaruHina fics you've read that you think are worthy of a place on the site that haven't already been added then by all means recommend them - the bigger the collection the better!

Status Update:

'Five Minute Panic' and 'Extreme Training Methods' are both complete - who says I can't finish what I start?!

'Waiting with Hope' could probably do with a lot of editing here and there, so be warned that I doubt I'll be updating it in the near future (although I want to make it clear that I have not forgotten about the story and I have no plans to abandon it). I won't be changing anything major or plot-related, but certain sections could definitely be improved, so I want to spend some time touching up various scenes - I started writing this fic as a sixteen year old and, no offence to my sixteen year old self, but I was a much worse writer then than I am now (I damn well hope so at least!). I will get it done at some point though, so thanks to all that have read and reviewed so far, it's much appreciated.

'Gardening Love' is a bit up in the air, with a second chapter and maybe an epilogue planned, depending on what the readers think.

And a third, currently unnamed story, is in the works as a submission to Perpetual159's 'Dattebayo Challenge.' The idea of the challenge has always appealed - writing for the sake of being silly and not being serious seems like a great way to just enjoy the writing process - and it'll be really good fun to participate in. Plus it'd give me a chance to test my lemon writing skills, heh. I don't think I'll be publishing it here though, since this site bans stuff like that, so I'll try and find somewhere else to post it and then let people know.

Extreme Training Methods reviews
After hitting a stumbling block in her efforts to learn a new jutsu, Hinata takes a leaf out of Naruto's book and decides to try some rather unorthodox methods…

Preparing for a first date is never easy. So how will Naruto manage when Hinata's coming around in just five minutes and he isn't ready at all? Submitted for the NaruHina First Kiss mini-contest.

First it was just the seed of an idea. Then it became a hidden, secret dream. And then, thanks to Hinata, Naruto's idea of making his very own garden became a reality. Submitted for the NaruHina Gardening Contest.

Waiting with Hope reviews
When Hinata accidentally discovers the day that Naruto is due to return from his long journey with Jiraiya, she decides to wait for him at the gates of Konoha. Just how much will this one act change things between herself and the one she loves?
