[livejournal.com profile] redbrunhja has been sucked into the quicksand that is Naruto, and I've been plying her with fic recs and so forth. I thought now would be a good time to consolidate a list of all my favorite Naruto fanarts from various places. Naruto fandom has some truly talented fan artists.


Pretty / General / multiple ships / all characters:

Oh, awesome sauce! Thank you so, so much for doing this! I'm having a ball going through these links!

Also, your new default icons is fabulous. Is it gackable by any chance?
From: [identity profile] redbrunja.livejournal.com
Fantastic!

And oh, yeah, I totally see how that song works.

There's sweetness and intimacy, but also a darker undertone.

Oh, exactly. Which since it's Sakura & Kakashi, really works.

Have you ever listened to it?

Oh, exactly. Which since it's Sakura & Kakashi, really works.

Oh yeah. In my head...

[hinty hinty]

...Kakashi is not "the perfect sexy gentleman with a slightly introverted personality whose only real flaw is that he loves too much and can't express it" like I've seen in several fics. My Kakashi is a perverted guy with a moral compass skewed heavily by a lifetime of ninja-ing, who has already passively-aggressively started down a path that will lead to him fucking a barely-17 year old girl, and he's not going to feel that guilty about it. He's also got some stalker obsessive tendencies waiting to come out later, and he keeps underestimating Sakura and then constantly having to re-evaluate who's in control of the relationship.

And Sakura is...not perfectly charming, either. She's as manipulative as Kakashi is (though she's growing into her skills) and she has a tendency to blame other people (including Inner Sakura) for things she instigated, and she jerks Kakashi around like a toy. She's in such a hurry to grow up, but she doesn't even know what that means. She can be callous too, sometimes worse than Kakashi.

They're two odd people-- one who is trying to pretend she's normal and the idealized version of herself, and one who is trying to pretend he's nicer than he is, deep down. Yet they end up being perfect together. Who's using who? Who is acting like the adult? Who's going to get more hurt? Can they even make each other happy?




Sakura: Well I had a happy. I had four happies. That was a good night.

From: [identity profile] redbrunja.livejournal.com
*nods*

That's not quite who they are in my head, but I really see where you're coming from, and I do believe the Kakashi is less nice than he pretends. (Hello, assassin at what, eleven? I kinda want to shank whoever was sending him out on those missions).

I'm definitely giving them both a more-than-canon spin, but the cool thing is that both Sakura and Kakashi's characters in the manga are adaptable enough to make it work. I hope. ::cross fingers::


I do believe the Kakashi is less nice than he pretends.

Me too. Or maybe he doesn't exactly pretend, but he lets other people pretend for him, and doesn't tell them otherwise. Anyone with a reputation like his and who fights like we've seen can't be a "nice" guy. A good guy, maybe, and capable of nice moments, but not a nice guy like Naruto is a nice guy. I still remember the scene right before the chuunin exams, where Iruka's like "Do you think they're ready? they're just kids." And Kakashi says something like "They're not kids, they're my soldiers." (probably with the unspoken implication of "and that's why I'm a fucking jounin and you're not.")

BTW, when you read the fic Transition Anchor, there's this short scene in the hospital where Naruto asks Kakashi a pointed question (I don't want to ruin it) about issues of loyalty, and Kakashi gives him a non-answer, and Naruto's like "Oh." because it's an answer in itself.

(Hello, assassin at what, eleven? I kinda want to shank whoever was sending him out on those missions).

This one-shot and its sequel express my full horror of the ninja system rather thoroughly.

It's worked so far - no reason to think it will stop. ^_^

Yeah, I totally remember that scene. It was intense. Also, is Iruka not a jounin? I thought he was, even if he was teaching at the Academy and not a genin team.

This one-shot and its sequel express my full horror of the ninja system rather thoroughly.


FUCK YES. That is exactly how fucked up that system is, and I'm so glad that people are doing that. Actually, the first Naruto fic I started is my response to how it's always the female ninjas who are asked to use sex, and has Kakashi as the one who is expected to fuck someone in order for the mission to be completed. I'm really looking forward to finishing that one for several reasons.

Iruka's a chuunin. He probably sleeps better at night.

It's implied that there's more chuunin than any other rank, because jounin is always being called "elite", and even within the jounin it's implied that the ones who teach the genin, like Kakashi and Gai and Asuma and Kurenai, are more "elite" or "special" jounin.

If you follow this to is logical conclusion, and look at characters like Iruka, this means that most chuunin are lifers. If you don't become a jounin by 25 you probably never will be, since ninjas in the villages seem to reach their pinnacle in their 20s. Hence people like Kakashi and Itachi.

That is exactly how fucked up that system is, and I'm so glad that people are doing that.

Yeah. I just reread those after linking them, and they still kill me. Six year old Kakashi tying his show laces at the end. And then, in the next one, his sensei saying "they won't be your whores" to Sarutobi. oh MAN. It's so horrible. And it's written with such pathos.

I think they picked Kakashi as the perfect character for that fic, too, because we know enough about his character to imagine that a six year old version of Kakashi really would go into that situation believing it was necessary. It kills me:

But Kakashi already knew that everything would be okay, because Kakashi was a ninja. Either everything was all right, or you were dead. And though there was a funny, empty feeling in his chest and the pit of his stomach, he was most definitely not dead, because he was still breathing.


kimi no vanilla, who wrote the second one, "One Candle", is very good and I have at least three of her fics favved. I particularly like Fade Away, which is basically "the last hour of Uchiha Sasuke on this earth" put to prose.

For so many different reasons. I was like, 'wait, but he has the special flak jacket!' and then I remembered that that comes with Chuunin rank, not jounin.

But Kakashi already knew that everything would be okay, because Kakashi was a ninja. Either everything was all right, or you were dead. And though there was a funny, empty feeling in his chest and the pit of his stomach, he was most definitely not dead, because he was still breathing.

That was the line that slayed me too: because Kakashi believes that NOW. As long as he's breathing everything is fine-just-fine.

I hope you finish that fic. I'd like to read any fic you do for this fandom, actually.

I love it too much to not write it, but it's probably going to take a hella long time. I'm working on my original novel, and working almost full time.

You know, when I see that icon, for the longest time I thought it said "When I grow up I will marry you" and I thought it was Sakura thinking it about Kakashi, and that's why it was on a binder notebook.

I only just realized it's the other way around.

You know, the artist actually did two version with almost the same pose, and the other one, is 'When I grow up I will marry you.'

I picked this one because I like the thought of KAKASHI being the one in love and waiting and ...okay, maybe no pining, but longing certainly, while I think Sakura's done enough of that with Sasuke.
