Author has written 6 stories for Naruto.

Just to give everyone the huge warning, I am an engineer. Therefore, if my writing lacks a creative flair or just plain sucks, you know why.

I usually use music to help inspire the mood of a story, so here are "Soundtracks" to go with some of my fics:

Sakura's Gift: A two-part bittersweet Valentine's Day/White Day inspiration for SasuSaku.

Fic inspired by: "Like You" from The Open Door by Evanescence (track 8 Full Video Clip)

Lingering Glances: A Hanabi/Neji fanfic. "There isn't another who has received such thick Hyuuga blood...watch closely, Hanabi." Never did I know at the age of 7 how those words would form the path that my feet would inevitably choose to follow.

Theme songs:
Part 1. "Duvet" by Boa (acoustic) Full Video Clip
Part 2. "Criminal" by Fiona Apple Full Video Clip

A Strong Wind

I didn't want to take time in figuring out a plotline for a chaptered fic, so I wanted to try my hand at a dramatic one-shot. Hopefully that's how it turned out. I think I like it, but it's really hard to judge your own work. Thanks for reading!

Song used for inspiration: "Arcadia" from Vision of Escaflowne (track 2 of OST#3 Short Clip - it's the last song in the video, after the dog has attacked the lincoln log village...it was the best I could find)

What Words Can't Say

I had a dream a while where Sasuke and Sakura had secret meetings under a tree like those in the Forest of Death and just had to get the story out. This is the first time I've actually even attempted to write anything outside of an English class, and I very much appreciate specific criticisms.

Soundtrack
1. "Cry Baby" from Otogizoushi (2nd ending theme Full Video Clip - Otogizoushi 1 season ending SPOILERS - do not watch, only listen if you don't want to be spoiled, also not the right lyrics, and it doesn't sound like the version I have, but at least it's something)
2. "Evenstar" from The Two Towers (track 8 Short Clip)
3. "This Eden" from Song to Fly by Kanno Yoko (track 5 Short Clip)
4. "Artisan" from Song to Fly by Kanno Yoko (track 8 Short Clip)
5. "Kaze ga Fuku Hi" from Vision of Escaflowne (track 18 of Lover's Only album Short Clip)
6. "Strange" from Scarlet's Walk by Tori Amos (track 4 Full Video Clip)
7. "Young Hearts Run Free" from William Shakespear's: Romeo and Juliet (track 8 Full Video Clip...AND Suggested Visuals)
8. "The Ship" from Song to Fly by Kanno Yoko (track 9 Short Clip)
9. "Blaze" from Vision of Escaflowne (track 12 of OST#3 Short Clip)
10. "Bother" from Spider-Man (track 8 Full Video Clip - amv for FFVII: Advent Children)
11. "Do What You Have to Do" from Surfacing by Sarah McLachlan (track 5 Full Video Clip - amv for Inuyasha)
12. "Heaven's Not Enough" from Wolf's Rain (track 1 of OST#2 Full Video Clip - amv for Wolf's Rain)
13. "Hello" from Fallen by Evanescence (track 9 Full Video Clip)
14. "Gotta Knock a Little Harder" from Cowboy Bebop: The Movie (track 16 of Future Blues Soundtrack Full Video Clip - movie ending, doesn't really spoil anything)
