    Summary

    To make a tragedy, you break something beautiful and frame the pieces. To make a victory, you break something mighty and rebuild it piece by piece. To make a life, you glue the pieces together and hope for the best. Kurama's still getting the hang of this ‘human’ thing, but given that he’s 30 years back in time with catastrophes to prevent and a blond brat to save, he’ll have to figure things out on the fly. Luckily, living with Naruto's been good for his ability to improvise, if nothing else.

    Summary

    I feel pretty strongly that the second half of Naruto diverted all the momentum of the first half, where what I wanted to see was what would happen if it speeded up instead. This arc is an AU of canon, in which Kakashi dealt with Sasuke differently after the first fight with Itachi and Sasuke never left Konoha. Changes spiral off from that point.

    This is also the arc where I change all the things that truly made me tear my hair in canon, such as the carbon copy generations, the sidelining of the women, the apotheosis of Naruto as a solitary hero, and Itachi turning out to not be a villain. So none of that happens. There is, however, Sakura/Sasuke/Naruto goodness.

    Also featuring a dash of Kakashi/Iruka and a side arc about Hinata and the Hyuuga clan that somehow shoehorned its way in while I was innocently contemplating ninja sociology.

    Summary

    Naruto is an antisocial bookworm with a strange tuna obsession who knows more than he lets on. Sasuke is determined to give them the best in life. Sakura wants to learn how to crush buildings, among other things. Kakashi tries to keep it together, even when his team turns out to be total maniacs; that is, when Naruto isn't dumpster-diving or talking to ghosts.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    great world-building re: seals & sealing; amazing & also hilarious relationships/interactions between characters not seen together in canon much at all.
