Author has written 2 stories for Naruto.

I like overused tropes.

Been reading fanfics for a long time now and I decided to branch out and try to make my own. I wanted to make something that I would want to read. If I continue writing after Crafting a Legacy is done, then you can probably expect to see my takes on common tropes that pervade certain fandoms and try to make something nice to read.

I'm probably more familiar with Naruto than I am other anime, although Bleach is definitely up there too. I play video games quite a bit, and I'm a big fan of Star Wars.

I don't take requests, although if someone has an idea I might come back to it for inspiration at a later time for a different story.

My stories are written by only myself and without a beta. There is no external influence, it's just me.

People who complain about non-canon compliant content in... fanfiction:

If you're on this website, then you've probably already been exposed to people taking liberties with canon material in their works. Don't come here expecting things to be the same and then proceed to complain that things have diverged from your preconceptions of characters, events and settings. If you see something unusual, maybe have a think about it before jumping to conclusions. If you click on a story that blatantly says in its description that it's going to be different, and you wonder why it's different, that's on you. Not the authors that write these stories.

Go read something else if you're just gonna bitch about it. Writing is one of my hobbies, not my job, and I'll do it my own way and at my leisure. I appreciate reviews, but not ones complaining about something so unbelievably obvious that it really shouldn't need to be said that you're gonna run into stuff that you don't agree with, is different, or don't like outright.

Support:

I've created a monetary support account for those of you who would like to give gratitude outside of reviews for my work. This will not provide any addition benefits outside of my own gratitude for your support. This isn't mandatory, I'm not going to withhold chapters, it's just there if you feel like you've got a bit of spare change and would like to support me going forward. I'm listed as Faulty Hero on the site, though I can't link it. Thanks for your time xoxo.

Beyond Crafting a Legacy:

I've been toiling over the idea of optional sequels to the story by way of crossovers, Harry Potter comes to mind. Although while that will be fun, I don't want to bite off more than I can chew when it comes to writing when I'm already quite busy. As always, chapters are slow to create but I hope you enjoy them. I have enjoyed writing an Uchiha Naruto story and I only hope that it becomes regarded well in the future. Going forward, I may continue to write common tropes in Naruto fanfiction in my attempts to 'make them good'.

My goal was to revitalize the writing community and help readers understand that just because a work contains tropes, does not mean that it's bad. I hope that I can do this better, Crafting a Legacy is my first work ever and I can only hope that it has instilled a desire for more fics like it and get people into these kinds of fanfiction.

Update: 13/10/2023

I've decided to publish a new story! Vortex is an Uzumaki-downfall-centric story, based around Naruto having been born into the clan and the massacre occurring a short while after the Kyuubi incident in Konoha. As always, updates will be slow. I can't prioritize fanfiction over my fulltime job and partner, but I'm eager to hear what you guys think.
