  • The Opposite of Reflection by coincident
    • Recommended by Kraesil
    • Synopsis: The man who destroyed Kiragakure, and the woman who saved it. A fairly long- as in roughly 14k words long- fic filling in the gaps left by cannon when it came to Mei's rise to Godaime Mizukage.

  • Stolen Light by Silver Haired Seireitou
    • Recommended by LastationLover5000
    • Synopsis: A short, one-shot, where Madara reflects on the state of the world, and his own past, as he casts the Infinite Tsukyomi. (one-shot)
    • Comments: While brief, it's a rather interesting look into the psyche of the infamous Madara Uchiha, who, I think everyone can agree is a psychopath. This story actually sums up how I sympathized with Madara fairly well in fact, this story places it in words more eloquent than I could come up with and it could make those of you who hate Madara see him in a different light. Or, you might not change your opinion at all. Give this quick one-shot a read and decide for yourself.
