The stories I’ve finished reading
A sequel to Arcanum. The story continues from chapter 79.
This story can be read separately but would make more sense after reading the first part.
Orochimaru & Sakura end up at a different time, but will they find each other again? A lot of healing, growth, and closure is to be expected in this story. You have been warned ^^
- Part 2 of Second Chances
Sakura Haruno is given a second chance in life. Second chance to relive her life. This time, Sakura is done caring for others. She is done with Konoha. She is so done. Sakura embraces chaos and her own power.
With all her knowledge of the future, Sakura searches for her own path in life. Fuck Naruto and his quest. Fuck Sasuke and his revenge. Fuck Kakashi and his PTSD.
- Part 1 of Second Chances
When Naruto is kidnapped from his orphanage at age three, Kakashi is so done with this shit. He gets Naruto back, tells the Hokage where to go (politely, because he isn't suicidal), and raises the boy himself. Or, you know, tries and is proud when there aren't too many explosions.
Then everybody starts to copy him and it's a whole thing.
He wanted to help rebuild the village....have his face carved into the mountain, but...he never got that chance. He was staring for so long that he thought that he had seen the shadows of the buildings that used to be there, he thought he heard the laughter and cheers of all the people that once lived there. But now it was nothing more than a giant grave, one big enough for a village.
A village that he saved.
A village that was still afraid of him.....
Naruto get the chance to go back in time and change somethings, but he doesn't know what until he gets a message. Until then, he's free to do what he wants without consequence from the Gods. While he's going about things, he makes friends and finds that he's allowed to share memories with certain ones, and he does. How much will this change the future he knew before?
After being alive for thousands of years, Kurama thought that he’d seen the depths of humanity’s idiocy long before he ever was forced into bondage at the hands of an idealistic idiot and his seal-master of a wife.
Given the current situation surrounding his latest jailor clearly he’d been wrong.
Considering how high that bar was before the latest clusterfuck he was witness to while bound and contained inside an insignificant human – fleshies, he’d never understand how they functioned with all their oozing and shedding and blech, give him good clean chakra any day – it was almost impressive.
If the reason for their current idiocy wasn’t something as fucking idiotic as human politics and as ridiculous as taking wrongful revenge on an innocent human-kit, that was.
Kurama is done with humans, his vessel clearly wasn't being taken care of, and Naruto ends up raised away from Konoha by a skulk of spirit foxes and one very grumpy fox bijuu who has issues with intermittent bouts of rage against humans in general and idiotic seal masters in particular.
