Notes to Readers: Thank you so very much for taking the time to read my little story! And taking the time to fav Kokoro &/or post your reviews! Some of you have even been so kind to add me as one of your favorite authors as well. It has been both encouraging and heartening to hear your positive feedback on the story and Naruto's nickname. I'm rather partial to it as well. For the record, I did look it up and it can be used for both girls & boys.
Kokoro Story Status:

11/25/15: Chapter 18, is now uploaded and online!!!!!!!
11/20/15: Chapter 18, how I love and loathe you! Have no fear, great progress was made, especially last night. Believe it!!! Personal deadline to publish this troublesome chapter this month. Yes, you've read that right! Aiming for this Thanksgiving. This author has not given up! And she will cry youthful tears of gratitude once it's edited and online.
10/19/15: Grrrrr!!!!! It's been two years now. Wrote up to chapter 25 while wrestling with that infernal chapter 18. Rather love the story in 18, it's just got several weird plot glitches that are roadblocking it. Hoping to have it done for you by this or next month.
10/3/13: Reversed the order of the 1st & 2nd chapters. Seemed to make more sense and will hopefully make the story more engaging at the beginning. Let me know what you think of this set up instead.
Side note: Camp Nano did help, but unfortunately I've written myself into a corner on Chapter 18 and spent the last few months wrestling with it. With Nov. comes Nano again. Armed with Word Wars, pocky and carob chips I shall endeavor to thwart this writers block and continue Kokoro's little epic tale.
6/18/13 - Chapter 17 online. Good news, I'm joining the NanoWriMo Camp as a rebel this July! To hash out some more chapters for Kokoro! So there won't be any updates until Sept./Oct.
5/18/13 - Uploaded Chapter 16 in the wee hours of now Saturday morning. It was one of those eternal "proofing, tweaking and revising" ones. Pretty happy so far. Might updated it later with break lines if they don't show up. Enjoy & thanks for reading! Even if its only this profile. :)
4/12/13 - Chapter 15 online. Iruka vs Kakashi professional shinobi POVs!
4/7/13 - Updated story summery! Been wrestling with it for quite a while and much happier with it now.Chapter 15 is undergoing final proof. Oddly I forgot to post the update notice of Chap. 13 back in Feb.
3/23/13 - Chapter 14 uploaded. Dedicated to all the night owls out there like me.
1/3/13 - Chapter 12 uploaded. Kakashi's rambling havering thoughts. What's been going on for the last two years?
12/11/12 - Chapter 11 is online! Happy Holidays and thanks for subscribing, sharing and reviewing Kokoro.
11/18/12 - The good news is I've written 4 new chapters! The negative is I'm only at 9,000 words so far and have a whole lot of editing one my hands in December. But, its been a lot of fun as my characters have hijacked my story and took it in a totally different direction than I plan.
10/29/12 - I have join the Nano's November Challenge as a rebel! Hopefully starting in December & onwards you will receive future regular updates as I edit Kokoro's adventures written next month. Details on
6/6/12 - BAH! Been wrestling with chapter 11 and currently behind on 2 beta requests. But, fear not I haven't forgotten you my dear readers. As they say, "Good things come to those who wait."
3/3/12 - Chapter 10 uploaded! Paperwork, Secrets and a serious pickles mishap all in "A Day at the Office"
1/27/12 - Uploaded Chapter 9 - Iruka's made his appearance in chapter 8 but his true debut is here! Unlike most fan fiction clichés, he's neither super strong nor a dunce. Plus, he's going to be quite an integral part of the story and in the Hokage's plans.
- Uploaded Chapter 8.
1/1/12 - Uploaded Chapter 7 & made minor fixes to typos to chapters 1 & 5.
12/23/11 - Uploaded Chapter 6.
11/3/11 - Chapter 8 has been written and is currently being tweaked and smoothed out. Then it'll be added to the Beta Queue.
Chapter 6 & 7 are still being proofed by my amazing & most wonderful Mom.
She can spell like really good, knows punctuation well and is great at grammar! See, "Blessed are the patient, for they shall read well... better written than I write."
9/11/11 Updated Chapter 1 & 2, changed Naruto's age from 8 yrs. to 6 yrs. And Kokoro's to somewhere between 8-10 yrs. old. Why, cause it'll make more sense as the story progresses.
Chapter 5 uploaded on 8/20/11.
Fanfic Thoughts & Preferences
Lately become fascinated in reading fanfics on Sakumo what if or history perspective pieces. Open to recommendations.
I'm not into character bashing, especially of fathers. And some my favorite "what if" story are "Team 8" by S'TarKan. Also, a cool Time Travel with Obito I'd recommend to check out is "New Identity in the Past" by Dreamyin. Dreaming of Sunshine by Silver Queen is an amazing self insert that is so uncliche. There's even a lightsaber it in! Even though I'm not into reincarnation its still one of the best stories I've read. I'm in awe of her ability to stay in the first person perspective.
A fan of well written Iruka fanfics. Particularly for Iruka & Kakashi platonicfriendship fics. Such as "True Confessions of a Paperwork Ninja" by Goldenkizamu and the "Not Over Til The Paperwork Is In" series by WhyMustIWrite.
I've done a LOT of reading of almost any Iruka Fan fiction and feel pretty confident, excited & happy about this story. Though I must admit I was quite inspired by the Paperwork series, (see above for title & authors). Yes, in Kokoro's story, our poor Chunin will be deluged by some bureaucratic duties. Hopefully delight you with unique twists.
I believe in free speech, but personally not interested in reading the "Icha Icha" genres in Fanfiction. Wish this website made it easier to exclude these from my searches. If anyone has attempted a Iruka & Kakashi straight friendship search you know what I'm talking about. And no, excluding the M rating doesn't put that much of a dent into the results.
So instead of wading through it all, check out & subscribe to the "Iruka - Underneath the Underneath" Community. If you have suggestions, feel free to pm them to me.
