Fandom: Naruto
Pairing: Shikamaru/Temari
Genre: Romance, Hopeful Feelings
Rating/Status: G / 380 words, complete
Summary: A second in Tsukuyomi can last days, and minutes a lifetime. Shikamaru has lived it all, and he remembers too clearly, her presence. Reaction fic to Shikamaru's portion of the dreams in ch.678.

Author's Note: This came from thinking too much about the dream sequence shown in manga ch.678 and how we only saw one moment out of what may very well be a lifetime for them. There aren't any real spoilers per se, but it might be a bit confusing without having read said chapter (which, in itself is pretty standalone... I jumped straight there myself, after who knows how many chapters I missed). This fic is directly in response to the portion that has every ShikaTema fan out there screaming.

Applicable prompts: [ profile] 500themes, #047 - One dream, one lifetime.

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.

Applicable prompts: [ profile] 500themes, #169 - A time for tenderness.

Genre: Part-Gen, Part-Romance
Rating/Status: PG / 359 words, complete
Summary: Kise likes to think he knows his girls. But then there is Aida Riko, tiny-bit-terrifying and not-quite-girl but obviously-very-girl.

Author's Note: Written for [ profile] basketballpoetsociety's "Perfect Zodiac" challenge on Tumblr during the Amnesty round. The idea is to write something for a pair that has the best zodiac compatibility. Kise/Riko was one of them. :)

Fandom: Naruto
Pairing: Gaara/Sakura
Genre: Romance, Drama, Humor/Crack
Rating/Status: PG-13 / complete
Summary: Four snippets; a tiny peek into the various shades of Gaara and Sakura.

Author's Note: These are just a few short drabbly things (not inter-connected) written back in January on Tumblr for the GaaSaku month event. I'm only now realizing I actually never got around to archiving them here. Due to the delay and the fact that a couple of them are super short, I've gone ahead and lumped them together in one post.

All of these are written with prompts or specific requests in mind, but they also crept out of some kind of head canon where Sakura and Gaara are sort of already in a relationship... I think. The latter explains the somewhat lame title of this collection, unfortunately.

Applicable prompts: [ profile] 500themes, #84 - How you suffered for your sanity, #88 - Serenity Incarnate (for the 1st one and the 2nd one, respectively)

Summary: Tenten had always thought relationships could come later.

Author's Note: Initially posted on Tumblr for the NejiTen shippers. SPOILERS for the most recent manga chapter, 614. You've been warned!

Characters: Nara Yoshino, Shikamaru/Temari
Rating/Status: G / 207 words, complete
Summary: This day may have arrived sooner than she originally thought, but Yoshino couldn't have said she was all that surprised.

Author's Note: Originally written back in 2010, during my bout of run-on sentences phase. I had left it lying around because I kept wondering if I should expand on it further. Reading it again recently, I realized that there really isn't much I want to add, so I'm posting it as is, with a bit of clean-up.

Applicable prompts: [ profile] 500themes, #364 - Bless the union.

Timeline: End of Draco's 5th year and Ginny's 4th year; OotP
Summary: In the wake of his father's arrest, Draco lets go of certain things and Ginny realizes that some things are irreparable.

Author's Notes: I think it may have been one of my beginning fanfics. A first stab at writing a oneshot type of story. A first stab at writing a Harry Potter fic. A first stab at writing Draco/Ginny. Yep, many firsts. :P

Characters: Ren/Nana, Oosaki Nana POV
Rating/Status: G / 625 words, complete
Timeline: Some time after Nana moves to Tokyo, and BLAST forms anew. Exactly when is a bit murky, but no spoilers for any specific bits.
Summary: All she ever wanted was to be just Ren and Nana, without parenthesis.

Author's Notes: Written on a whim for the 04/18/2006 challenge, "(in parenthesis)" at [ profile] 31_days. It was my first attempt at writing a NANA fic - quite unplanned but it popped up out of the nowhere the moment I saw the theme, which resulted in super speed writing all in one go at the last few minutes of the theme day.

Just Ren and Nana )

Timeline: Probably during or after the time skip.
Summary: Temari realizes some things quite suddenly and unexpectedly.

Author's Note: Digging around my computer sometimes yields the strangest things I've forgotten about... in this case, some really really old fics I tried my hands at and never really thought was good enough to post at the time. Here's one of them, written almost two years ago on May 6th, 2006. *_* Reading it again now, I'm reminded of why I stopped writing ShikaTema even though I love the pairing to death. I really have a knack for writing boring fics on the two. -_-;

Timeline: Undefined future, no spoilers
Summary: In Team 8, there were certain things you simply don't speak of. Perhaps it was because of this that he never really knew her at all.

Author's Notes: Here be the next part of "The Paradigm of Understanding" - ah, goodness, the title is such a mouthful. I suspect the next part will be a while solely because I'm busy with work, and anything I'm posting these days were really written last month while traveling anyway...
