when eighteen-year-old, post-war Sakura is thrown back into her tiny, pre-Academy body, she makes a decision. she'd had a childhood once already, and this time, she's more interested in Not Dying when the inevitable shit hits the proverbial fan. so she will work harder, care less, kill more, and smile when she's done.
and hey, if she ends up reviving an extinct nature transformation to attract the most corrupt, power-hungry man from her timeline, all the better for her, right?
- Part 1 of shit happens
what if, upon arriving to find Konoha ravaged by Pein, Sakura hadn't gone with Shikamaru and Chojuro, but with Yuki? how would everything have changed?
AU-of-an-AU featuring our favourite ride-or-die baby assassin and disaster troll
Fist poised to punch a goddess. A glare from opalescent eyes. A flicker of chakra.
Sakura’s fist met Kaguya’s face at the same time her vision went black.
When she woke up, it was to find herself twenty years in the past, with a pair of eyes she’d personally helped shut staring down at her.

During their mission to Wave, Sakura realises how behind she is in her training and decides to do something about it. She vows to become a shinobi her Village and her teammates can respect and depend on. But Sakura has always been a paper-ninja, so her first stop for inspiration is the library where she finds unexpected help in the form of one very bored tokujo who quickly goes on to become an integral part of her life. Soon, despite the neglect of her sensei and all odds seemingly against her, Sakura's destiny begins to change.
Thirty year old Kakashi was supposed to have been killed by Pein during the Invasion. Instead, he wakes up in the body of his twenty year old self.
(It gets a lot more complicated.)
