Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter, Naruto, and Hannibal.

Hello!

My name is Noa, I'm a full time student in University with a part time job trying very desperately to squeeze in time to maintain my sanity and finish my novel, and on the side I get these strange notions that I have time to write FanFiction. I'm guessing that that's why the 'maintaining my sanity' portion of time is constantly disappearing.

As for stories, I usually read in the Harry Potter, Torchwood, Assassin's Creed, and Naruto categories, although some of my favorite stories come from outside of these, and beyond them I've found myself reading Firefly, Doctor Who, Avengers, and much more. While I am a sucker for fluff/angst/silliness of certain characters, ships, and tropes, I firmly believe that the best stories lie not in what characters they contain or ships they sail, but rather a polished style of writing combined with a well developed and executed plot, and most ships can sail if well written, and in the long run if the story is good, it does not need a ship to keep me reading.

Stories that have stuck with me:

The Man With No Name - Frostfyre7 - What intrigued me first was the crossover--Firefly and Doctor Who?--although I was skeptical that it could go well. A sort of 'too good to be true' feeling. But I started reading, and more than once found myself with a grin on my face at the beauty of it. One of the best things about Frostfyre7 is the attempts to taking on a style and sticking to it. What I've read of Ff's other works agrees with what I found in The Man With No Name - the style always starts out a bit strong, strong enough to make it's point but bordering on the edge of trying too hard, but as the story progresses so does the writing, relaxing more naturally into the style. I have not read much in the Firefly category, so I cannot compare to category tropes or whatnot, but Frostfyre7 did an excellent job in combining characters here.

Twenty Matters of Pride to Hyuuga Neji - Kraken's Ghost - I will say that the first of these three I read was Twenty Unknown Secrets of Maito Gai, and I absolutely loved how Kraken's Ghost took that common writing exercise and turned it into a story. Then I read Twenty Matters of Pride, and found that style better three-fold. But really, if you read one, you should read all three.

To Sink Into the Earth - Vyscaria - a short story focusing on one of the guards of Assassin's Creed. If you've played AC, you know how many guards get killed throughout the course of the game, without any story or apology, which is strange considering that every time you kill a target you have a reason, and every time you kill a civilian you desynchronize a bit with the warning "Altair/etc., did not kill innocents". So what about the guards?

Currently following/worth checking out:

The Never-Ending Road - Laventadorn - One of my favorites at the moment for how much it focuses on plot and story progression.

The Open Door - RoslynStVincent - (on here in French, on AO3 in English). A bit more of a romance story than most of the long ones I follow, but after reading a bunch of pretty bad fluff I was glad to find something with a plot and good style to go along with it.

Oasis - Renaerys - Being that it is in the Naruto category, I was NOT expecting to find a zombie story. Yet here we are. Centered with the strangest two charcters to be stuck together, as well - Ino and Kimimaro? Hasn't been updated since February, and Renaerys has started working on other things since, but I can hope...

Status of my stories:

Ongoing: A Fire Does Not Seek a Forest (It Burns it All the Same). Crossposted to AO3 (username thenoacat). Will be updating weekly for at least the first 50k. Beyond that, we'll see.

Harry Potter and the Slytherins - IF I do continue on this one (its a big if, guys) I may completely scrap/rewrite what has happened as of yet, and will be pushing myself to get the pacing to a decent speedy rate. Honestly, half the reason this one paused was because I've laid it out to have slow pacing and it is a LONG story. So yes, for now this gets the potential "eternal hiatus" stamp. Sorry, guys.

Of Water and Ink - this WILL be finished. I can guarentee that. However, I cannot guarentee that it will be finished in the next few months, until the school year is out. I will TRY to get to it sooner, but as I've written above, it's not a priority, and I'm barely squeezing in my priorities here. But yes, it will be finished. SOMEDAY. As soon as I write the end.

The Never-ending Road by laventadorn reviews

Magical Relations by evansentranced reviews

To Sink into the Earth by Vyscaria reviews
Xavier was just one of the innumerable guards who fell to Altair's blade. So why was he different? Both men lost their fathers at a young age, and were driven to kill for vengeance. The only difference between them? One was a Syrian Assassin and one was a Crusader. Well... Xavier used to be a French choirboy. A look into the grey areas of the Holy War, and what it is to kill a man.

Desmond's on the run, again, but its all different and turned on its head. People he thought were his friends are now the ones he can't trust, and his enemies and captors grow by the day. But you can only chase something for so long before it turns around and bites you back.

The Wendell That Wasn't by opalish reviews

The Man With No Name by Frostfyre7 reviews
He hadn't really counted on getting into a pub brawl over the color of his coat on some speck of a planet, or signing up with a crew of petty criminals. Still, he'd always wondered what really happened to those Lost Colonists from Earth...

A Fire Doesn't Seek a Forest (It Burns it All the Same) reviews
Lily Potter (single mother, accomplished mediwitch, newspaper-proclaimed madwoman) would do anything to keep her family safe. Braving Azkaban, denouncing the most powerful wizards in Magical Britain, fleeing to France, and hiding her son's identity are only the first steps. A tale of love beyond reason, sanity, magic, and death. cross-posted to a03

Of Water and Ink reviews
Years after the end of the war, those who survived linger on-and in some cases, those who should have died twice still walk the earth. Ino outlived her teacher, her best friend, and took comfort in the images she has branded into her skin. Itachi lives while his brother, his family, his mission are all gone. Two paths become one road.

Harry Potter and the Slytherins reviews
Harry Potter begins his story as usual, until he hesitates under the sorting hat and gets thrown in Slytherin. Which sucks. Begins closely following the story of Sorcerer's Stone and gets more and more separate.
