No Strings Attached: A flight of fancy after a puppet show will spur Naruto on to first a hobby and then an ambition. He will rise to the top of the ninja world just as his puppets rise on invisible strings.
If you like my stories, you should really check out DarkHeroOrion. His story Birth of a Legend: The Fox Druid is really good and deserves more accolades. Visit his story and leave a review.
Darkness is My Friend CHALLENGE: Recently, I have acquired a taste for Blind Naruto fics. I would like to see a fic in the mold of Zatoichi, the Blind Swordsman. Naruto would have a nodachi hidden as a cane. He was born blind, none of this 'angry villagers poked his eyes out' crap. His sense of hearing and smell, taste and touch are all enhanced. He still contains the Kyuubi, but I leave its involvement up to you. Pairings are what you wish. If you wish to take up this challenge, I would suggest renting the Zatoichi movies. Not only are they good, but you would get a feel for the fighting style and the facial expressions of a blind person. Watch the old ones, not the ones with the guy with white hair! Good grammar required.
Jiongu CHALLENGE: We've all seen various Akatsuki members take Naruto in, but I've never seen this one. What if an angry, bitter Naruto, one who didn't know acknowledgment, ran away from Konoha at a young age, swearing that one day they would see him again. He comes across Kakuzu, who attempts to kill him at first, but is amazed by the child's resilience. Intrigued, he lets the child accompany him on his bounty hunts as tests of his endurance. Upon finding that Naruto is also an outcast of his village, he uses the kinjutsu Jiongu, the Black Tendrils, on the boy. Pairings, if any, are what you wish. Kyuubi's involvement is up to you. Naruto is a bitter, jaded individual against the Leaf. Good grammar required.
Oblivion CHALLENGE: I've seen a total of four stories for a Naruto/Oblivion X-over and I can't believe that this hasn't been tapped more. As an avid player of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and a HUGE fan of the Dark Brotherhood missions, I extend this challenge. A young Naruto kills one of his tormentors out of anger and is visited by Lucien LaChance in his sleep. Offered a family and the love he's been denied, he pledges his loyalty to the Brotherhood, the Dark Lord Sithis, and the Nightmother. A Naruto who revels in the kill. Just imagine the argument between Naruto and Hidan...Sithis? Or Jashin? Feel free to contact me for details. Good grammar required.
The Crow CHALLENGE: One fic...I've seen one fic for this. Such a travesty. People like to write about Naruto dying and going to the Bleach world, but what if his purpose on Earth isn't finished yet? What if there was something left undone? Sasuke kills Naruto at some point but, what if, instead of going to Seireitei, Naruto was brought back to fulfill his destiny? Because sometimes a soul cannot find its way to the light of the afterlife before immersing itself in the darkness...Naruto/The Crow Xover. PM me for details and help. I want to see this one!
Anyone interested in these challenges, feel free to contact me for further details or guidance. And be sure to notify me. I'll give you a bump below here on my profile. Happy writing!
