    Summary

    What drew Iruka wasn't what he knew about Kakashi. It wasn't words or facts. It was the little glances and glares, the slow touch, the chime of laughter. It didn't come together through reason, and it wouldn't be dissuaded by it.
    Each little moment had piled in the corner, suddenly bringing him to the overwhelming truth.
    Once he had found it, he could set aside his fear. Even his grief. He could peer into the shadows with a tender heart.
    Once he found it, he knew with certainty that his life had been worth every harrowing step.

    Iruka is forced on a journey that will carry him far from the life he's known. Together, he and Kakashi will push through trials beyond his imagination and into a world that borders on the fantastic. When it's all over, he'll have a story that no one will believe.

    Summary

    Iruka’s life has fallen apart in the year since the kyuubi attack. He spends his days pulling pranks, arguing with his least favourite ANBU, Hound, and becoming more obsessed with teenage jounin Hatake Kakashi for reasons he doesn’t entirely understand. Then he starts hearing the stories.

    Several orphans have gone missing – branded as runaways by a village still licking its wounds, no one is searching for them. But there are rumours whispered by the village children: rumours of the bogeyman, a shadowy figure who emerges from the underworld, perhaps a man or a monster, with messages from dead parents to lure the orphans back to the Land of the Dead.

    Iruka doesn’t know what to believe. But the danger is real, the adults aren’t listening, and somebody needs to stop the bogeyman. It might as well be him.

    Summary

    The memorial stone should be a place to mourn the dead.

    To Umino Iruka, it's a place to speak to his parents, and the mysterious ANBU who listens.

    Follows Iruka from ages 10 to 26, and the many ways Kakashi changes his life.

    (This is the same story line as Unspoken, but from Iruka's POV. The two stories can be read completely separately and understanding of one does not hinge on the other, but I do recommend reading both if you feel so inclined.)
