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]

Shikamaru punches a hole through Sakura's wall. She can't really deal with that until she has her morning coffee. [1084]

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.

When Haruno Sakura looked around her and realized she had become far more than she had ever thought she could be, she was, oddly enough, waging another verbal war against her parents. [2482]

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.]

survival of the fittest - cywscross - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
Sakura is thirteen, still a Genin, lost in the middle of Earth Country, lugging an unconscious Chuunin around, and so far beyond scared that she’s moved right on to pissed off. [24,790]
Shikamaru sighs in a way that somehow conveys both fond exasperation and grim concern. “Between the two of us, you're worse off than I am now, and you're still the one carrying me around.”



“I’m fine,” Sakura automatically deflects, and Shikamaru doesn't argue. They both know the truth what with the evidence right in front of them, that Sakura is too pale and too thin, just like Shikamaru, and with way too many torture-inflicted injuries to really belong anywhere except in a hospital bed. But she’s also the only one of them who still has two working legs which means she’s still their only way of moving forward.

Something in the water
Tsunade notices a distinct disinterest among her ninja for the opposite sex. Or any sex.
Tsunade frowned. Strange. She'd seen Kakashi reading before, though she'd never paid that much attention to it. He was reading porn all that time? How bizarre. Not the 'reading porn' bit; after growing up with Jiraiya, Tsunade had no more faith left in the male half of the human race. What was strange was that his attitude; Tsunade had seen people read rules and regulation with more passion and involvement than that. Either Kakashi was the best undercover op in the entire village by far...or he was the only man on the planet who actually did read stuff like that for the stories.

"He needs a girlfriend," Tsunade muttered, glaring at the tuft of white hair which was now the only thing visible of Kakashi behind the decorative pillar. "I take it he doesn't have one."

Sakura choked on her punch; Tsunade had some as well, though hers was, shall we say, spiced up from the contents of a discreetly hidden bottle. She was determined to survive this dull official function somehow.

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.]

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]

runespoor7: And then we'll make the rules
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.]
