- Part 1 of The Lives Worth Saving
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.
- Part 1 of Against the Sky
Naruto is a genetically modified soldier, used by the government to win a war, then thrown in prison because he was too dangerous and too valuable to be allowed out. The military police run the state after the war. And they are led by a pair of ruthless, elite officers who are the last to carry a powerful, unmodified bloodline. DARK FIC. See tags. Sex will be violent enough to possibly trigger, so don't read this if you don't like it dark and rough. 18+ ONLY, please.
Sasuke is an overworked Civil Rights Attorney who meets an annoying blonde at a ramen stand after work. What follows is a series of meetings in which Sasuke realizes perhaps the blond isn't so bad. I wrote this fic in part because of carrotcakebanditdoodle's art featuring a cute little Ramen AU where Nar owns a ramen stand, and honestly? I felll in love.
