    Summary

    There's been a storm brewing inside Sakura ever since Sasuke left to seek out Orochimaru, and the growing realization that she might not be half the shinobi her teammates are. She's always been the one that held back and let the boys finish the job, but it's clear she can't let herself be the weak one any longer. It's time to take her fate into her own hands.

    It started with breaking into a library. But after a slew of what could be arguably called bad decisions, Sakura puts together an unlikely team of shinobi and decides to take on several impossible goals: defeating Akatsuki, keeping her loved ones safe, and, the most impossible goal of all: the unification of the shinobi world.

    Sakura's not going to be the weak one of Team Seven anymore.

    (A pre-Shippuden divergence AU. Updates monthly.)

    Summary

    It's a self insert fic. You know the drill.

    Featuring a grumpy protagonist who wants mochi, clean socks, and to maintain possession of their life and eyeballs in that order, a troll-dad sensei who's genuinely trying to understand the pint sized weirdos he's been saddled with but isn't sure where to start, and two team mates who are honest to god twelve year olds who canonically didn't mature until after the handy dandy time skip.

    Where, please, is the unsubscribe button, because I'd like to request a different afterlife.

    Summary

    Naruto realised quickly that she was different from the other children.

    She saw it in the way people stared at her with something mean in their eyes, the way their gazes scraped against her like needles and knives. She saw it in the way their lips twisted when they spoke to her, if they bothered to speak to her at all—and how she wished they didn’t sometimes, because it felt like the words monster and demon were branded into her skin, and she didn’t know why—

    But she was different in other ways too.

    Hair too bright. Eyes too blue. Marked cheeks and sharp teeth.

    And there was the itch too—something under her skin that writhed and howled. Something hot and uncomfortable, pressing against her insides like it wanted to burst her open.

    OR

    Naruto learned hate young. Learned it through the dark looks and disdain from everyone around her. Learned it through the taunts of the other children and the sting of the matron's hand on her cheek. Learned it like the blood that sat at the back of her throat when she bit her tongue to contain the fire inside her.

    She learned to smile so she wouldn't cry.

    Chin raised, eyes bright, teeth bared.

    Summary

    She bows low, her arms against her sides, saying something even Gal doesn't seem to understand. Then she points at herself, before pointing at the man.

    “Sakura,” she says. “Sasuke.”

    Gal smiles, the kind that Barukh cherishes. “Welcome to Ishval, Sakura.”

    Summary

    “We are still under wartime policy,” the recruiter had told her parents. He had an envelope in his hand. He sounded sorry. “She has two parents who are successful ninjas. We would be remiss to overlook her potential based upon that alone.”

    The Third Shinobi War never ended. Konoha needs more soldiers, grabbing anyone who can fight, especially those who can't say no.

    Summary

    Katsuyu spits acid in her eyes, and Sakura must prove herself worthy enough for the slugs of Shikkotsu Forest to heal.

    Or, it doesn't translate to 'damp bone forest' for nothing.

    Part of the resolve 'verse but can stand alone.

    Summary

    This will sound a little ridiculous, no matter how Sasuke phrases it. I see dead people is embarrassingly tacky, and I'm half-spirit seems like something Sakura might say when she's stoned sky high. So he settles for a shrug.
