    Summary

    This consists of two novels and several sidefics all set in the same AU continuity. The basic idea is that when Naruto moves into his own apartment, the Third Hokage asks Ayakawa Yukiko, the building's owner and manager, to look after him rather than leaving him completely on his own. Yukiko is a mostly retired ninja, but Naruto catalyzes her to change her life. Then those changes snowball out to the rest of the village.

    The second novel is currently unfinished, but I promise I have not abandoned it! I posted chapter 16 in December of 2015, after making a host of punctuation and phrasing edits to chapters 1-15 (and fixing some tone issues that had been bugging me for several years). The ff.net version is now up to date as well.

    ETA, 9/16/16: I apologize sincerely for the lack of new "Guardian" chapters. 2016 has been a cruddy year for me, but hopefully things will pick up through the fall and winter and I will be able to get back to semi-regular writing. *crosses fingers*

    I'm now hopelessly attached to all these OC's, incomplete but still good

    Summary

    “It’s a mistake,” Steve whispers. Neither of them have moved a muscle, too busy gaping down at the living, breathing, actually-here-somehow baby on their doorstep, blinking against the morning sunlight.

    “There are no mistakes with babies,” Bucky whispers back. “That’s the whole goddamn point.”

    Summary

    The story Hippolyta told her daughter when she was a child was that she carved her from clay. That Zeus breathed life into her, this child she so desired, that she came into being.

    This, Diana learns, for all that it was a kindness, was a lie.

    Diana tells her daughter the truth; that she was born of love. Imperfect, too brief, human love.

    The truth, Diana thinks, the ticking echo of Steve’s watch pounding away in her head - her heart - is rarely a kindness.

    Or Diana; after.

    Summary

    Gaara muses on how odd it is for the first touch he shares with a soulmate to be on his face. Who touches someone for the first time on their face? What ninja lets anyone get so close?

    Naruto’s face is a Technicolor masterpiece by the time he is 17.

     

    A platonic (or not) soulmark AU where you leave colors on each other's skin the first time you touch.
