    Summary

    Sometimes the hardest battle isn’t enough to change a heart, sometimes all the war and blood in the world isn’t enough to shift a single destiny.
    Sometimes a simple touch is enough to break down the strongest of barriers, sometimes a single word is enough to make the world quake.
    Sometimes the most reaching of changes comes in the form of a little boy sad enough, strong enough, and kind enough to make friends with a monster.
    Sometimes one change makes waves.

     

    Naruto has been hearing the rumbling growl in the back of his head for as long as he can remember. He’s seven when he tries to talk to it for the first time. He’s the dead last, the failure at everything, so he doesn’t actually expect to succeed.
    And when he’s suddenly standing, knee deep in murky water and face to face with a demon, he has no idea what to expect.
    As it turns out, the world could use something unexpected. 

    In which Naruto discovers the real meaning of the word monster, Sasuke discovers power and strength and learns the difference between them, and Sakura discovers that being herself is not as selfish as she thought.
    Where Kakashi learns to fight again for what he loves, and Obito never stopped.

    Summary

    He's 16, exams are this year and Naruto's facing two more years in school after that... except maybe he isn't and he never thought the prospect would be quite so terrifying. He's crossed the line from concerning to perilous and now his life within the safety of school surrounded by the people he's known since he was a kid is looking like its going to collapse around him.
    After threats of being kicked out of the school upon failing the year, Naruto's trying hard to contain his anxiousness and fear, despair creeping over him as the reality he will never pass consumes him, but despite what he'd initially thought, his situation isn't a hopeless as it seems. Someone steps up to help and Naruto will grow to realise he has more in front of him than he realised as the year continues and hope begins to grow within him once more, perhaps for more reasons than one.
    OR
    Where Shikamaru is more perceptive than the rest of his peers and realises he isn't willing to let go of someone who means so much to him, and if that means dropping the lazy act he's carried with him and showing what he's truly capable of, well, the stakes are more than worth it.

    Summary

    Pain is familiar. Welcome, really, to someone like Sasuke, who has felt the sharp heat of loss and the cool slice of metal through his skin. In all honesty, Sasuke has endured so many different types of pain for such a long time that he has forgotten what it feels like to be healed, or at least not in a constant state of hurt.

    Looking at Naruto hurts Sasuke, sometimes.

    Summary

    “So that’s what rich people do on holidays; throw expensive shit into the lake. That’s cool. I would've never guessed.”

    Visiting his parents for the holidays was never easy for Sasuke. Running away and spending his Christmas with the annoying, hot blond stranger he'd met on the bridge was not what he'd call the healthiest course of action. But there was just something about the way he smiled that made him hard to walk away from.
