Overturn - serendipitousDescent - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
The wind moves through his dirt-streaked hair as he looks out on a broken village. His life must be quickly coming to a close now, each second bringing him closer and closer to the end he's desired for years. Giving up isn't so difficult when there's nothing left to fight for.

Then Obito tells him he's only one suitable for the job.

And fighting isn't so much a choice as it is something he's flung into head-first, his last decision ripped away from him in its entirety. But if he doesn't have a choice, he might as well try his best now that he's here. [179,762]

Scenes from a life where Sasuke was born first - Natarie - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
Otou-san said things like that sometimes, about Itachi being better. As if it mattered that Itachi could have graduated the Academy before Sasuke if he and Kaa-chan hadn’t held him back, or that somehow Itachi always understood what their Otou-san tried to teach him better and at a younger age than his Nii-san.

Being able to hit a target didn’t help him understand people, especially the way they said one thing and did another, even when it was a regular day and not for a mission. And they didn’t understand him—that being good at being a shinobi didn’t mean he liked it or that he wanted it. He wasn’t cheating or doing in on purpose for attention, it was just the way he was.

Of Harrowed Hearts - Sable_Scribe - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
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. [187,242 at 34 chapters; WiP]

[...There are no words to describe the sheer awesomeness of this fic. An epic in the original sense, a marvel that sweeps you off your feet and keeps you glued to your screen. There is no character-bashing, no character-blinders here; Naruto may be the main character, but as the fic goes on the lens widens to include every one of the Rookie 9, the jounin-senseis, several elite-jounin, a few missing-nin and most of the tokujo. It is riotously funny in parts and heartbreakingly sad in others, with a continous thread of friendship woven throughout the entire tapestry. IT'S A WIP, BUT DON'T LET THAT STOP YOU.]

Stormborn - blackkat - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
Flashes of an unknown past haunt Naruto, entwining his steps with those of a former life no longer content to stay forgotten. There's a voice on the wind and another lifetime in his head, and it’s time for Uzushio’s Storm God to rise once more.

(The soul of a city is a hard thing to kill. Uzushio is still aware, still waiting. And now, with the rebirth of her greatest Kage, it’s time to call her people home.) [136,326]

Locker Room Therapy - Asuka Kureru (Askerian) - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
He's never going to know the truth. Minato and Kyuubi are identical twins. There's absolutely no way to prove which one of the two actually fathered him.

(Apart from taking Kyuubi at his word, but Kyuubi lies. Naruto knows that Kyuubi lies.)

It's sordid, is what it is. And that's why he'd rather think about Sasuke punching him, kissing him. It's weird, but at least it's normal-weird. His-life-weird. It's not waking up handcuffed to a lead pipe and being held down as a psycho with his father's face calls him "my son" and carves into his cheeks. [6726]

backslide - blackkat - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
Naruto’s friends are gone, his lover is dying, Konoha is destroyed, and Madara’s second return has pushed the entire world to the brink. Hunted and harried, Naruto is sent back in time to upend Madara’s plan before it even starts, and sets about changing everything. Butterfly effect nothing: the world is at stake, and Naruto is hardly about to let it fall to ruin once more. Not while he’s still breathing. [128,352]

[Ridic amazing time-travel fic. I like this probably better than I do canon (except for its tragically low levels of Gai), and I usually honestly *hate* time-travel fic. If it was all like this I could be converted.

Also it's super freaking long! I didn't even read it as a full view fic, it's so long, and I _detest_ paging between chapters.]

Recommended for Admission - pentapus - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
All around him children perked up like little wolves. The girl on Kotetsu’s shoulder was suddenly wide-awake. Ah, a Yamanaka. Of course.

“Iruka,” Kotetsu said with feeling, “I am a red-blooded ninja in my active-duty years. You cannot keep this from me.”

“I’m red-blooded too,” said the Yamanaka girl, pale eyes earnest.

"No, you're not," Iruka said automatically.



The war ends. Iruka gets promoted. Things go differently for Kakashi.[25,470]

Summary: AU Orochimaru takes a genin team. That poor, poor man. 17 moments of spring.

12. Looking at them, Orochimaru wondered if Sarutobi-sensei hadn't just chosen the three genin hardest to kill.

Really, you just suggest a few experiments that require human subjects, and suddenly everyone thinks you're some depraved evil mad scientist.

Sakura’s parents run a foster home. Guess which orphans they take in. AU. [Ugh, this is so pitch perfect, it's amaziiiiiiing. I just want a novella in this universe, I want to, like, roll in it and glory in its existence. I need ALL THE SIBLING SHENANS, GUYS. ALL OF THEM. Also, as a foster sister this rang pretty true; the only part I don't like is the summary, for reasons that are too pedantic to get into.]

Ibiki's Apprentice, a naruto fanfic by may wren - FanFiction.Net
The Academy's teachers thought they were getting one over on the Hokage, graduating an ill-prepared Naruto while Iruka was sick. The Hokage knew he was getting one over on the entire village when he assigned Morino Ibiki as Naruto's Jounin sensei. [4595] [Ok, I was genuinely surprised when this turned out to be not that bad. I'm not sure why I clicked it in the first place, but it's actually an interesting, if short, read.]

In Bond and Blood - thehoyden - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
"I want to make Naruto my heir," Kakashi said bluntly.

To his credit, Iruka didn’t freeze in the middle of taking a sip of tea, but he did set his cup down after a careful swallow. "This is sudden," Iruka said cautiously.

Kakashi looked over at the curtain fluttering in a brisk, early autumn breeze. "Not really. I’m turning thirty tomorrow."

Iruka drank from his teacup again, and Kakashi knew he wouldn’t have to explain further, jounin life expectancy being what it was. You were either good enough or lucky enough to survive, or you weren’t. In either case, Kakashi believed in being prepared. "Happy birthday," Iruka said after a moment.

Kakashi inclined his head in thanks. "Imagine my surprise when I learned you beat me to it. Very sneaky, Iruka-sensei. Tell me, how did you convince Naruto to keep his mouth shut about the adoption?" [12,918]
