Author has written 2 stories for Naruto.

Writing is complicated (but at least it's less complicated than life). There's nothing quite like losing yourself in a story, and sometimes it's too hard to pull yourself out. Is this a bad thing? Maybe. Who knows.

Chasing the Wind is currently undergoing major revision. All I can say is: expect a lot of changes.

27/06/17: The first re-written chapter of CtW is up! The pace is definitely going to be slower than the original version to highlight important moments which showcase some sort of growth or development - whether that be character-wise, plot-wise or in terms of relationships. I ended up deleting the original because it had been around for so long and it felt discouraging to have a reminder of the story that had me stumped and unmotivated for years. Changes in life weren't the only source of conflict; I felt as though the lack of clear direction and overly ambitious nature of the original CtW had me grasping at too many things at once and only ended up pushing away my enjoyment of writing. So I've started a new version of CtW with different characterisation and a clearer vision of where it's going. I'm excited to share this story with you all, and hopefully it's as entertaining to you as it is to me!

27/08/17: Hello everyone. I've been battling the final boss of academic life and struggling with chapter 3 of CtW, so hopefully that explains why it hasn't been updated in a long while. Still working on it, but it's slow going. Hope you're all well, and I'll see you in the next update!


Please consider the schedule of any author; they have many things going on outside of fan fiction.

My inbox is open to anyone with questions, suggestions or just a 'hi' or 'hello'.

Making Arrangements by CrownsofLaurels reviews
It takes a Village to make a relationship-Or, at least, a bunch of over-reaching grumpy old farts, a military leader with a bit too much to drink, a nosy but well meaning kunoichi, eight ninken, and the power of youth. And a really cranky chakra monster with nine tails and a penchant for swearing. Kakashi/femNaru

To Be Lost on the Road of Life by AthanatosOra reviews
Obito became the Jūbi Jinchuuriki and consequently got smacked to oblivion and back, with words and Naruto's fists.

Laying Claim by JanuaryEclipses reviews
SasuSaku. An ancient law in Konoha permits people from prominent clans to buy people who aren't from clans at all. Unfortunately, Sakura just refused to believe it until her mentor confirmed that, yes, she was now owned by Uchiha Sasuke.

The Way of the Wind by just enough reviews
ANBU Captain Uchiha Itachi had things well planned out, until a medic-nin with ridiculous hair went and made herself interesting. Sakura insisted she was just doing her job, but Itachi didn't quite see it that way. Non-massacre. Sakura/Itachi.

Fractured Hesitation by Flours reviews

Cloud Age Symphony by slexenskee reviews
Let it not be said that being Uzumaki Naruto is anything approaching easy; he has an obligation to the future but a duty to the past, and a time-traveling jutsu that lets him travel between both. OR: Naruto travels between the past and the present, and somehow loses himself in the process.

Chasing the Wind reviews
When pieces of Sakura's life start to fall away, Uchiha Shisui strangely seems to be at the centre of it all. But if there was one thing she was certain of, it was that there was more to him than sharp red eyes, tilting lips and a ghostly reminder of who he had once been. AU. Non-massacre. Shisui/Sakura.
