Author has written 21 stories for Naruto.

I love kakiru. All my writing on this site is really exploring the dynamic between them. But I like a good story too. Found this pairing looking up the sex lives of dolphins. This summer I was helping a friend analyse Orca DNA to find out info on their sexual relationships and decided to see if there was info out there on dolphins. Googling sex and dolphin, this is where I ended up. Sometimes life is stranger than fiction.

Thought I'd add a little on my take on the guys' characters. I don't see either of them as fucked up or damaged. They've been put through life's wringer, but haven't we all to some extent. They are both strong, intelligent and independent, but in ways that compliment each other.

Kakashi is cool and analytical, may seeth inside, but never looses control. With a wicked sense of humour and a dirty mind. Can make logical leaps that no one else would see. While we're working our way from A to B to C, he cut straight to F long ago, but sometimes he may miss something along the way as a result.

Iruka gives the relationship its spontaneity, full of emotional flashpoints. Sweet and caring but not a pile of goo by any means. With a quick temper but quick to forgive as well. He has worked hard to put his prankster past behind him and values his current status, although he has retained his sense of fun.. Unlike Kakashi who doesn't give a hoot what anyone thinks of him, he cares a little too much.

PS I'm the one who can't stand cold wet feet.

PPS In response to some who've commented, these stories are not intended to form a single arc. They all arose as separate nusings in my strange brain, that wouldn't let me be until I wrote them out. So don't expect exact consistency in things like powers, events, other details. Unless it is from the manga, each of these is likely to be tailored to the specific story.

Tampopo.

I haven't added to this in forever, but reading through, it still pretty much all applies. Just one more thing though. I'm not a writer, I don't aspire to be a writer, and don't claim to have any particular writerly skills. However for those who do, if there are any tips you care to share I'd be grateful. I don't generally ask for comments, although, like everyone i enjoy reading them. And I promise to reply any signed reviews, after all it's just good manners :)

Letters from a friend reviews
Not real fiction just me having a bit of fun. Letters originally written by Iruka and collected by Naruto. Mostly fluff. OK maybe some angsty bits too. Yaoi KakaIru but not too explicit. No real spoilers but vague references to events before the time skip

The Hesitant Hentai and the Tenacious Teacher reviews
Pure fluff and silliness with a side of naughtiness and a few scraps of other equally inappropriate stuff. How Kakashi got iruka.. or was it the other way around? Rated M to be safe but no lemons, though chap 5 comes pretty close.

Princess Poppy reviews
A 'little mistake' from a past mission. It's hungry and it needs it's diaper changed. Shonenai yaoi Some humour some angst and even a little bit of plot. Chapter 18. The final resolution.

Something Lost, Something Gained reviews
Kakashi meets Iruka, with a different twist. Not soft and fluffy. This was supposed to be strictly a oneshot, but somehow it spawned a sequel. And now a second sequel, the lemony conclusion.

An Encounter at the Stone reviews
Something I wrote a while back. A brief encounter that hints at why team 7 passed where others had failed. Shadings of future KakaIru if you squint, but could be read as friendship.

First Kiss reviews
One shot. KakIru. Yaoi. Sweet and fluffy but slightly sad. Rated for sexual situation, but no action in this one.

The Blood of the Wolf reviews
Blood can be many things, birth, death, life and strange jutsus. What is the connection between wolf blood, white hair and the fate of Konoha? How will Kakashi save everyone and his own soul? Action, sex, language. Yaoi. Kakairu. Rated M for a reason.

Some Kind of Puzzle reviews
Humourous fluff, lots of innuendos, some gentle groping. Written as a seasonal gift for the KakaIru community. Especially for those who dread Some Assembly Required.

Kakairu. The relationship from two POV. Kakashi intellectually, all genius. Iruka intuitively, all heart. Follows a parallel track to the manga up to about ch 138. Now finished.

The Lying Truth reviews
Kakashi and Iruka. Just a little nothing that came out of a discussion about lying, telling lies, laying and getting laid. Fun with the language featuring our favourite liar. Rated M for adult situation. No sex.

The Fiercest Fighter reviews
Kakashi x Iruka. Kakashi's wasted and Iruka must fight for both of them. Violence, language, yaoi. My attempt at a kickarse fighting Iruka fic.

Star Crossed Lovers reviews
Kakashi x Iruka. Sad tale of what happens when true love is denied. KakIru, KakAnko, kakaHini, GaiIru, IruOC, Kakasak yaoi. Happy ending for those who don't like their tragedy tragic. Finished.
