Fandom: Naruto
Pairing: Shikamaru/Temari
Genre: Tragedy, Hurt/Comfort, Romance
Rating/Status: PG-13 / 490 words, complete
Summary: In the aftermath of war, Temari stands beside him, steady. And Shikamaru finally understands.

Author's Note: This one has been sitting in my drafts for well over a year (soon after ch.616 of the manga came out, to be exact), which means there's a peripheral mention of SPOILERS that occurred in said chapter. It took so long to get posted because I kept struggling with the wording, so it ended up getting stashed away until now.

Professionalism, it appears, is overrated where Kise is concerned. It's like déjà vu, really. In short, this is Version 2 of Professionalism, Except Not Really. PG / 275 words, complete.

I initially attempted to write another version that wasn't as crackish as the first one in hopes of getting it to fit into that long fic I wanted to write... except it turned out practically the same. So here it is too, for archival purposes. It follows pretty much the same formula; the two may as well be identical.

Professionalism, Except Not Really - Take Two! )

Fandom: Kuroko no Basuke
Characters: Kasamatsu Yukio, Kise Ryouta
Genre: Gen, Crack, Silly Stuff
Rating/Status: PG / 216 words, complete
Summary: The one where Kasamatsu's life is in Kise's hands. Or (less dramatically), Kasamatsu is a passenger and Kise is the pilot.

Author's Note: This was written about a year ago when I tried to imagine what Pilot!Kise and Passenger!Kasamatsu would be like after the whole future jobs thing was released in the character bible. It was supposed to be part of a longer fic, but it refused to be anything other than crack (which would have been ridiculous for the fic I was planning). So here it is, by itself, along with a version 2 that turned out so similarly it's probably more accurate to call it version 1.1.

Fandom: Naruto
Characters: Haruno Sakura, Hatake Kakashi
Rating/Status: PG / 499 words, complete
Timeline: Future fic, probably 2-3 years after The Strongest
Summary: They left her behind, and she finds herself living the lives of the dead.

Author's Notes: A stand-alone sequel-ish thing in the same universe as The Strongest, though I didn't originally intend to write anything of the sort. Somehow, my brain started brewing a ton of "Where Sakura Goes From Here" type of scenes. A couple of them morphed into Terribly Monstrous Things, none of which I'm able to tackle at the moment... so I compromised with this, to shut my brain up. It may or may not eventually serve as backstory to one of the aforementioned Terribly Monstrous Things, but I suppose it's irrelevant anyway as this stands on its own.

Fandom: Naruto
Characters: Haruno Sakura, Team 7
Rating/Status: PG/PG-13 for blood / 404 words, complete
Timeline: Future fic for confrontation between Team 7. No spoilers.
Summary: Sakura became the strongest just for them and for this moment, but sometimes even that isn't enough.

Author's Notes: This was completely inspired from reading the latest Naruto manga chapters 305-306, but there are no spoilers. It's a future snapshot so it's purely made up. Finished within 15 minutes... but it's angst so it takes me faster to write. :p The style makes it kind of choppy though, and it's also the first time I wrote something using present tense. I might build around it later?
