Author has written 17 stories for Naruto.

My avatar is part of a picture I commissioned from Curtis Hamilton.

The story covers for 'Iteration' and 'Real' is by kyuubi1010 (aka Gaia77). Both wonderful gifts, thank you.

About me

I have always enjoyed fan fiction, from imagining new stories for others' characters, through the variety of published fiction based in the Star Trek universe, to the explosion of fan fiction on the web.

I have joined this community to publish stories that base other people's characters in my universe. I first published these stories on adult fan faction dot net but I have been persuaded to reproduce them here to seek a wider readership and because this site allows for more interaction between readers and authors.

In 2015 I published Cast Adrift, the first book in a space sage. It is available as an ebook from the usual retailers.

I also now have a website. It is mannahpierce with www before it and com after it with the dot and the @ in the usual places.

About my fanfaction stories

'In the cold of space you find the heat of suns' is a Naruto/Sasuke pairing fanfic set in my far-future SciFi AU/AR. I started this as a project over Christmas 2009 and soon found it fascinating. Beyond Naruto, Sasuke, Iruka and Kakashi I had no idea which other characters I would choose and the roles they would play. I did know that I wanted Sasuke to have not grown up hating Itachi. I also knew that I would relect the fox demon part of Naruto by making him a human with some fox genes. Having decided that it was natural to develop him in a way that reflected my deep admiration for my favourite author, Cordwainer Smith.

The other unexpected pleasure has been the challenge of developing a story when the earlier chapters have already been shared with readers. I find myself keeping options open, particularly as characters have a tendency to go their own way in my fics.

Ageing

Purebred humans on age retard do no show signs of aging (i.e. they look 25) until they are about 70, whereupon there is very, very gradual aging (which can be disguised by specific treatments) until they are 100. Age-retarded purebreds look middle-aged between 100-120 and then age very rapidly in the last standards of their lives. Some hang on until 140. Those willing to take ‘drastic methods’ have been known to make it to 200. There are always rumours of people who have lived three or four centuries by transferring between bodies.

Time measurement

‘Standard’ is shorthand for ‘standard year’. This is necessary because each planet had a diffwerent length year. For readers, a ‘standard year’ is one of our years, an Earth year, but in the story that fact has been lost in time, as has the location of Earth (if it still exists).

A ‘div’ is short for a ‘division’ and there are ten divs in a standard.

Minutes and seconds are, again, Earth minutes and seconds.

A ‘ship’s day’ is 1440 minutes (one of our days). Days on planets vary. Ship’s chronometers count seconds, minutes, ship’s days, divs and standards.

Hours are not used except on some planets to break up the local day.

The World of Mannah Pierce

The world of Mannah Pierce is our world in the far future.

Homo sapiens has left Earth and spread across the Milky Way.

The historical thread linking the world of Mannah Pierce to our world has been broken many times and in many places. None of the humans in Mannah Pierce’s world know of Earth, nor of the spread of humanity from Earth. All that remains are traces of our Earth-bound civilisation in images, languages, music and legend, and the belief that Homo sapiens began on one planet, a planet with a year that was one standard long.

There have been many, perhaps countless, cycles of interstellar migration and planetary colonisation. Empires have peaked and declined. Technologies have developed and fragmented. Populations have separated and merged.

Known history speaks of the purge. Once there was an elite with an unprecedented and subsequently unequalled level of technology. Unfettered by laws, mores or ethics, they yielded absolute power, until those they abused revolted. Their technology was purged, but shards of it escaped, scattered across the galaxy.

Most persistent is their genetic technology. Gene complexes lurk within populations, carried by otherwise unremarkable individuals. If two identical gene complexes meet at conception the geneticist’s intent is revealed: a brilliant musician, an empath, a mentat, the ultimate courtesan, endless possibilities only limited by the geneticist’s skill and imagination. Such homozygous recessive individuals are rare in the genetic mix of the interstellar community; common in isolated populations. Historians speculate that the population of each planet was seeded with one gene complex, then the homozygous recessive individuals harvested like any other crop.

Fragmentation followed the purge. Knowledge and skills were set aside. Populations were trapped on planets by their ancestors’ zeal. Slowly technologies were rediscovered or reinvented. Brave explorers crept across interstellar gulfs.
