    Summary

    Inoichi’s decision to adopt the boy was a spur of the moment thing, but he stood by it, and he could not be prouder of both his children, even if they lived to give him grey hair.

    Or, how a Yamanaka-trained Naruto went and cheerfully dismantled the last shreds of Sasuke’s self-image because conventional therapy obviously wasn’t working well enough, and then proved that even the best minds could be entirely dumb when it came to romance.

    Summary

    Part One: The Third Hokage is dead, and while Kakashi might not be the only one who thinks it's suspicious he is the only one who has two valuable genin to protect. He takes drastic measures to do so - including leaving the only home he has ever known. But he's going to come back, and Danzo will rue that day.

    Part Two: Team Seven's return to the village was successful, but they are going to be caught up into a whirlwind of politics and subterfuge, things ninja thrive on. Naruto begins to realize that his world is far more broken than he ever understood.

    Interludes: Three Monkeys, a character study on Sasuke, Sakura, and Naruto in-universe. A personal challenge to present a facet of their characters not through the usual method of introspection, but through scene(s) with other characters. All Things Strive, missing scenes from the years that they were outside the village.

    Summary

    She starts wearing the binder because chest compression is helpful considering Sasuke shoved an arm through her tit during the war. When she pulls back her hair and a stranger calls her 'young man', it spirals from there.

    Or, the one where the boys of Team Seven try to teach Sakura how to be a dude, Shikamaru has a sexuality crisis because his crush is hot in every gender, Ino is a wardrobe consultant to the stars, and Sakura figures out how comfortable he can be in her own skin.

    Summary

    Shinobi seem to harbour this bizarre impression that civilians are somehow... soft.

    Sakura aims to disabuse them of this notion.

    (The one where Sakura is a farmer's daughter, and knows better than most the value of hard work and, more importantly, the importance of co-existence within an ecosystem.)
