    Summary

    Sasuke deserted the village. Naruto is being taken away for his own safety. Sakura is left with the broken remains of her team and a teacher that's barely in the village, but she'll find a way to make this work. She has to, because all those lectures about teamwork had to mean something. Didn't they?

    (Or, Sakura and Kakashi remain a two man team and events change from there)

    Summary

    Sakura finds herself far from home and she breathes easy for it. A mission to the far North-West, far far away from Konoha on her own and it's not hard, but it's exactly what she needs to find herself.

    She picks a few flowers as she goes (something to bring home when she returns to Konoha) just because she can. She'll present them to the man she loves who is waiting for her to return. It's the start of their garden and Sakura intends to make it grow

    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.

    Summary

    "Don't you feel," Sakura whispers, "like the city is rotting? We all watch the crows, while they just keep on watching you. I went on a walk with Naruto yesterday, and when he breathed on my hands, I felt no warmth. Kiba's dog is howling every night. Shizune has been missing for a week and when I knock on her door, Tsunade says nothing and simply sends me away. Where did your brother go, Sasuke? Where did your brother go?"
