    Summary

    "I entered the Ishval War in my final year of training at the military academy. Usually a cadet is sent to the battle field for acclimatisation during one's graduating year. In my case the academy happened to be based in the East Area. They were short on manpower then, so I was dispatched to Ishval ... In the end I gradually became embroiled in the conflict."

    Everyone who returned from Ishval changed, and Riza Hawkeye was no different. She caused more deaths than any other person - not only with her own hands, but also with the weapon she unleashed upon the world. No-one could return from a massacre like that the way they were before.

    Moon's parents would do anything to keep their daughter safe, even if it meant sacrificing the chance to raise her in order for her to get a chance at life.

    Summary

    With graduation coming, and with betrayal still sour on her tongue, Adrienne goes through life the best she can, with her energy slowly sapping away. She continues to fight, not knowing why, when she comes across monsters being bullied in a coffee parking lot. With anger behind her actions, she scares them off, not knowing (but somehow feeling like this happened before) she set off a chain-reaction to cause her life to become more chaotic than normal. Will the changes help her continue her life, improve it? or Will the changes bring her to a much darker path, to one once unfathomable for her?

    Updates are erratic. I will add Tags as the chapters come, so if it increases, then check them for any warnings for my more gentle and wary-hearted readers. (Most tags are in order of when added, so keep an eye) I also always respond to comments, so feel free to give recommendations, ideas, a nice chat, etc.

    Summary

    Hari Kurono has lived all ten years of his life in a monochrome world. Nothing mattered to him, and it was all meaningless. He didn't admire heroes. He didn't despise villains. He didn't have any hobbies. He simply existed, going through the motions of life with no passion or purpose.

    And then the day arrived where all of that changed. The day he met Kai Chisaki.

    (Warning for some small description of violence)

    Summary

    In another life, Orochimaru never leaves Konoha, opting to remain within the village that equally reveres and reviles him. Fighting a bitter battle against forces within the village that are more influential and well-positioned, he finds himself gifted with one last shining opportunity: three children, a team of genin, handed to him because Konoha has no better choice. Orochimaru agrees to become a jounin-sensei for the first and the last time, taking into hand the next generation's Team Seven: Uchiha Sasuke, Nara Shikamaru, and Uzumaki Naruto.

    [ A gradual exploration of the author's most prominent Naruto headcanon, with a good!Orochimaru (well, sorta good) who eventually becomes the Godaime Hokage. Lots of chakra theory, cool jutsu, in-depth backstories, diverging plotlines, relationship development, political intrigue, and den mother Orochimaru parenting feels! Be prepared to suspend your disbelief, for this will be another one of my long-running intense worldbuilding reboot AUs. Let's go have fun! ]
