I'd rather be born as a cat. Or even the non-descript background character. But no, I got reborn as Yamanaka Ino's replacement, in the epicentre of incoming chaos. Oh right, but my name wasn't Ino because apparently existing differently in the womb caused even that to change. Also I have purple eyes, maybe that's why.
Cue abusing the Yamanaka heiress status. Cue acting as a therapist. Cue dominating the world with the power of common sense. Cue seizing the chance for a better life because Ino was one of the most disappointingly executed character Kishi had ever written.
(SI as Ino's replacement. No current pairings. Rated M.)
"When you begin to notice a wound, that's when it begins to heal. If a patient can feel pain, you'll understand that it means they're on the path to recovery."
"So this pain..." Naruto absently grabbed at his chest. "Will go?"
"Maybe." Tsunade shrugged. "Maybe it'll leave an aching scar. It's impossible to save everyone, but I can teach you how to try. Today, I'm going to teach you Iryo Ninjutsu. I'm going to teach you how-"
The corners of her mouth quirked up, but it looked more grim than anything else.
"-To heal a wound."
-"I believe that Tsunade-hime had fixed a wound that no Bijuu or Med-Nin ever could."-

(Or, Tsunade is forced back into Konoha and told to take an apprentice after a... let's call it a 'meeting' with the Elders. Hyuuga Hinata, Haruno Sakura, Yamanaka Ino... those are the suitable candidates. But Tsunade won't go for 'suitable', she's going for a challenge- someone who will be exceptional. She absolutely does not know how her presence and her words would affect the Konoha Rookie 9.)
The One Year Contract.
Something changes and a turn of events cause an eleven year old Naruto to be whisked off to the ROOT HQ. The Academy class is told that Naruto would be back for the Genin exam but not before then.
Twelve months later, a similar looking Naruto returns with a smile that’s just as sunny before. But if one were to examine it long enough, they’d realise that it held an undertone of grim determination and icy detachment.
(or, what would happen if Hiruzen was just a little too tired, and Danzo's whispers were just a little too convincing?)
"No, nononono, Sasuke," Naruto desperately grasps at Sasuke's shirt, now fully died a rusty brown copper. He can already feel the elaborate seal tugging. "Seals are my thing, you son of a bitch!"
"Dobe," Sasuke smirks but it's more of an endearment now. Naruto just wants to see his face one more time but these goddamned tears-
"Y-you have to come after me, yeah?" Naruto blabbers. "Promise me, teme. Promise me, Sasuke."
Sasuke... doesn't answer.
"I love you." It was a phrase unspoken and Naruto had wished that Sasuke would've said it for the first time after this five-going-six year war. He can feel the pull of the seal and I don't know what to do- helpmeSasuke.
He opens his mouth and Naruto wants to scream at him, yell and demand why? but he-
The seal fully activates, the runes shimmering across his limbs, weaving throughout his body and latching onto his soul, his chakra. No. Nonono. Naruto gets pulled fifteen years into the past.
I love you too
[ 取るな ]
Luna had always lived by two straightforward tenets to validate her existence: 'be grateful' and 'be useful'.
Born with a naturally 'weak' constitution, at the age of a handful of days, Tolluna Zoldyck deemed herself a 'failure' since birth. (She even failed to die.) Before she hits the double digits, she hopes to take that back at any cost. If there was one thing she'd thank, it'd be Togashi's amazing power system; Nen had so much potential, and she was going to scope out all of it.
(or, the Zoldyck Family doesn't know what to think of their only daughter and her scarily wise eyes, but her relentless determination to prove herself is definitely something admirable. If only she herself could see it.)
SI/OC as the sixth, youngest, and first female child of the infamous Zoldyck Family.
SI/OC who bullshits the hell out of the Nen system (as she should).
