KK and Kristin's Naruto Recs!
|||||Akeboshi- Wind (Naruto)||]|
Character/Pairing: Hyuuga-centric (Mostly Neji, though)
Comments: This fanfic just struck me as being unique in that it's very...scientific. I don't mean that in a bad way at all, though--it's a really interesting, thoroughly thought-out story that offers a lot of insight on Byakugan and its users. The writing is really nice, too. :)
Title: First Frost
Character/Pairing: SasuNaru, LeeSaku, KibaHina (yay, my OTPs!)
Comments: This fanfic is just wonderful--it's humorous, fun, nostalgic, and fluffy, but not overly so. It's a very feel-good type of story. I swear it makes me happy every time I read it. The characters are a joy to watch in this one. The interactions between Kiba and Naruto, and Naruto breaking into Iruka's class and releasing the kids just made me endlessly happy. And, with this combination of pairings, how could you go wrong?!
Title: Naruto Primer
Character/Pairing: Everything and everyone possibly imaginable.
Comments: Arbitrary, weird, crack-ish, but fun. Good to read while things are loading or downloading, or when you have absolutely nothing better to do. Exceedingly long. No, really. It's more than 100 chapters. While I wouldn't say this one is funny enough to merit sitting down and reading it in large chunks, it's a good time-waster, and amusing in a very quirky way.
Title: song of the unknown child
Comments: Heartbreaking and beautiful--a very nice character focus piece. One-shot, and absolutely lovely. It's nice to see a fanfic that has a focus on Sakura that is like this--it's definitely a different way than she is normally portrayed, and I like that a lot. It accomplishes a lot of sentiment although it's rather short.
Character/Pairing: A little of everything.
Comments: Glimpses of the Konoha characters in the future--wonderfully done, very poignant. The writing is so nice and it all just flows so well. Everyone is so well-rounded, the writing is beautiful, and the last little bit is so...I don't know. It hurts. Lovely little fanfic.
Comments: It has Hokage!Naruto AND SasuNaru! And it's hysterical! The mental images it renders are priceless. XD Just read it. You'll laugh. Ah, we all know how dysfunctional Konoha could be/will be(?) when Naruto becomes Hokage. It just makes me endlessly happy, as Hokage!Naruto generally does.
Title: House of Leaves
Comments: Wow. Just WOW. Some of the more gorgeous writing I've seen--very deep, very emotional. The plot is interesting, and the characters are spot-on. I absolutely love it. I hope the author comes back to it, she hasn't updated in a while. Anyway, I highly recommend this one. I don't think I can adequately describe how much I enjoy it.
Title: Persistance of Vision
Character/Pairing: Kakashi and Obito-centric.
Comments: This one is so beautiful, it almost made my eyes mist up in Econ class, and that was the second time I read it. That's saying a lot. Very sad, very sentimental, extremely nostalgic. I adore it. The concept of the fanfic by itself is really interesting, and the way this author pulls it off is masterful. I definitely recommend reading it if you need something to cheer you up, because this is just...so sentimental. I love it.
Title: Dear Foolish Little Brother
Character/Pairing: Sasuke and Itachi-centric
Comments: Humorous. Very silly. I don't know, I thought it was funny. XD
Title: I Fell in Love With a Boy
Comments: One of the few AUs I will ever like. :P It's just so hysterical I can't help but love it--the writing is incredibly clever. It's first-person, Naruto's perspective, and snarky in all the right ways. Hasn't been updated in a long, long time. Probably would have been better as an original story, but it's great fun anyway.
Title: A Girl Thing
Character/Pairing: Kakashi and Sakura friendship 'fic.
Comments: Tired of KakaSaku? I know I am (but then again, I never liked it in the first place, so this isn't saying much). This is sort of a...counteraction to KakaSaku, and has more of a humorous edge to it. It's more of a realistic look at the relationship between teacher and student. And it's rather cute.
Title: Scratch and Sniff
Character/Pairing: Kakashi, Obito, and Rin
Comments: I adore Team Yellow Flash, and this is a nice little fanfic about them--about how each of them affected each other, and about how they deal with things... I dunno, it's a one-shot that just struck me as being a nice, feeling-type story. Does that make sense? At all? ^^;
Title: The Lie
Character/Pairing: SasuNaru, Sasuke-centric
Comments: This one has Sasuke pinned, and it's a really painful, beautiful, lovely fanfic. It really gets me for some reason--especially the last few lines, and how much impact they have after having read the rest of the story. ;_; So gorgeous.
Title: Naruto World Facts of Life
Character/Pairing: Little bits of everyone.
Comments: Just some nice little drabbles that counteract weird trends in fanfiction. They're just fun to me for some reason, and they really express some nice truths about the series that some people overlook. ^_^
Comments: Sasuke, you had it coming. XD Silly and fun and cute.
Title: Avoiding the Issue
Comments: Another silly little implied-sex fanfic which just makes me laugh a lot. XD Somehow, stupidly, I can see this happening and I don't know why, but it's funny.
Rating: PG-13 (I think?)
Character/Pairing: Bittersweet semi-SasuNaru
Comments: This fanfic is a little bit confusing because of the timejumps and just the ambiguous way it was written. You must read it anyway. It is, again, one of the more beautiful pieces of writing I think I've ever seen. It has a very bittersweet, downtrodden tone that I really like, and it's just...absolutely beautiful. Please read it.
Title: The House Guests
Comments: Eee, this is so cute and funny! It's definitely in-character, and it's just adorable. Makes me laugh every time. This pairing doesn't get nearly enough love. ♥
Title: On Your Mind
Character/Pairing: SasuNaru, InoSaku
Comments: XD; Nice to see InoSaku getting some love, and it's just fun. Oops, maybe I shouldn't have told you the pairing. Oh well. Enjoy it anyway.
Aughh... I'd better get going. I still have mass archives more (wahh, where did the one about Kakashi and the cat go? I can't find it! T_T) but I'll work on those another time (I need to figure out what to do about the ones where I have a ton that I love by the same author). Enjoy the ones I did post, though. ^_^ Good night!
