In another life, Orochimaru never leaves Konoha, opting to remain within the village that equally reveres and reviles him. Fighting a bitter battle against forces within the village that are more influential and well-positioned, he finds himself gifted with one last shining opportunity: three children, a team of genin, handed to him because Konoha has no better choice. Orochimaru agrees to become a jounin-sensei for the first and the last time, taking on the next generation's Team Seven: Uchiha Sasuke, Nara Shikamaru, and Uzumaki Naruto.
[ A gradual exploration of the author's very liberal Naruto headcanon, with a good!Orochimaru (well, sorta good) who eventually becomes the Godaime Hokage. Lots of chakra theory, cool jutsu, in-depth backstories, character development, political intrigue, and den mother Orochimaru feels! Also featuring: BAMF baby Team 7! Be prepared to suspend your disbelief; this will be another one of my long-running intense worldbuilding AUs. Let's go have fun! ]

Tenten doesn't actually dislike Gaara, okay. She got over the whole "crushed his leg and almost his dreams and therefore deserves to get stabbed through the throat" THING. However, if Gaara thought that because he was the Kazekage he was allowed to play around with Lee's heart then he had another thing coming. It was very, very disrespectful of him, whether or not Lee had never looked happier than when they were holding hands.
(She didn't care if he was the second coming of Hashirama himself. If anyone wanted to seriously date her friend, then they needed ask- it was only polite.)
When Kankuro wakes up it’s in a room he doesn’t recognize with a view from the window he does.
Only problem is the Playhouse’s storage facility was torn down eight years before the war began.
The time-travel fic literally no one asked for but I wrote anyway!

"When he looked back on it later, Iruka’s prevailing memory of the first few years after the Kyuubi attack wasn’t even really a feeling, but rather a sensation: hunger."
After growing up alone and hungry, Iruka is very careful to live his life under the radar, even while he remembers the dog-masked Anbu who saved him. He's irate when he's forced to teach a certain jinchuriki in his classroom and wants nothing to do with the boy. Then he notices the worst thing in the world: Uzumaki Naruto is hungry.
