Air and Darkness
- Recommended by Nitramy, Ack Sed, Arcane Azmadi, Khym Chanur
- Pairings: Shikamaru x Temari
- Synopsis: Nara Shikamaru, you will take Temari to be your lawfully wedded wife. To have and to hold, for better or worse, until the chauvinist pig chasing her is satisfied this isn't a trick. You may now scream in terror.
Break to Breathe
- Pairings: Shikamaru/Temari
- Synopsis: Shikamaru has a mission to Suna, which must be completed before Tsunade's death. But there's more in store for him than a six-day round-trip and a paycheck.
- Notes: Terminated. Author is now trying to get published as a mangaka. I personally love PSI Teleports works - but none of them are remotely as awesome as this one.
- Recommended by AwayLaughing
- Pairing: Shikamaru/Neji
- Synopsis: "Neji has always been in control. There's just one problem. It's killing him - and only Shikamaru can tell. But sometimes being pulled back from the edge is just as dangerous as being pushed there." First in a series, +100k.
- Notes: While there is some debate on how IC the boys are (this being a crack slash fic and all) it certainly isn't heinous in its characterization and the tensions and emotions are depicted beautifully. This does seem to follow the canon in that it does not change or rebuke any of the preexisting events.
- Tags: Slash NSFW in regards to lemon and lime as well as violence.
- Recommended by ASTK928
- Pairing: Naru/Hina
- Synopsis: "Relationships are slowly built from the ground up and it is something that you simply do not rush into. Naruto was flattered after hearing Hinata's confession and the two of them will take the small baby steps that will lead them closer together." +100k
- Notes: This was written right after the Invasion of Pain Arc so some details may are outdated.
- Tags: NSFW in regards to lemon and lime towards the middle chapters.
Duty Before Honor
- Recommended by: Legendia Advocate
- Pairings: Gaara/Naruto (Main), Itachi/Sasuke, Zabuza/Haku, one-sided Deidara/Gaara, implied Sasori/Deidara.
- Synopsis: Naruto wanted to know where his friends went every Friday night. When he's taken to Club Secret his question is answered and he becomes hopelessly entangled in the ancient battle between Vampires and Hunters. GaaNaru, ZabuHaku, ItaSasu.
- Notes: Updates slowly, but the chapters are generally about five thousand words per chapter when it does update.
The Greatest Thing You'll Ever Learn
- Recommended: by adelz2
- Synopsis: Sakura knew why Tsunade didn't want a virgin on this mission. Things might get out of hand. Acts might be carried out too far. She was glad Kakashi was accompanying her, but right then she wouldn't have minded the entire population of Konoha.
- Pairing: Kaka/Saku
- Tags: NSFW
Legends of the Foxwife
- Recommended by: Kittykittyface230
- Pairing(s): KakaIru, with a side of NaruSasu.
- Synopsis: Iruka is a twenty-something with a Plan: get a good job, get married, get a house, have kids. What he didn't expect is for the plan to be ruined by an enigmatic new colleague who Iruka just can't seem to forget. Ongoing, but updated regularly. Set in a sort-of high-school AU, revolving around teachers rather than students.
- Tags: Lemon and Lime, a couple of times, although the author always posts a warning before them.
Man of Dreams
- Recommended by: rakku
- Pairing(s): KakaNaru
- Synopsis: Collection of KakaNaru oneshots based on the fox-wife legend, which can be found in the first chapter.
- Tags: Lemon in some of the oneshots, though the author posts a warning when there is mature content.
- Notes: A few are AU (such as the one set in Ancient Greece, involving Athenian pederasty) but almost all are within the canonverse. Some are crack, most notably "Bun in the Oven" where everyone thinks there's M-preg involved when there really isn't, and Hilarity Ensues.
Missives in Pink
- Recommended by: Soulseller
- Pairings: Hashirama/Madara, Hashirama/Mito
- Synopsis: Hashirama put his highest hopes, dreams, and delusions into Konoha's creation. One was that, maybe, Madara didn't really hate him. Another was that, maybe, he didn't really love Madara. From Konoha's birth to the First Hokage's death. Onesided HashiMada.
- Notes: Onesided means exactly that. And this is not a het fic.

Savior of the Blind and Broken
- Recommended by: Dellanotte
- Pairings: Neji/Tenten
- Synopsis: "The craziest things people do for love start at age seventeen." For instance, Tenten confides to Lee that she likes Neji. Naturally, Hilarity Ensues. Two-shot.
Somewhere I Have Never Travelled Gladly Beyond
- Pairing: Hinata/Kisame
- Recommended by: Robofeather
- Synopsis: Hinata gets captured by Akatsuki. Itachi gives her a drug that blinds her. Her mysterious saviour from the men of Akatsuki is a man named Kisame, whom she cannot see, but begins to trust completely, maybe even more than just trust, maybe....love?
- Notes: Complete. Seems like an odd pairing at first, but the author makes it work extreamly well. Itachi's character can seem a bit questionable, but overall a must-read for anyone looking for an interesting new pairing.
- Pairings: Sakura/Deidara
- Synopsis: Naruto had been bragging all day that his new jutsu was his best yet. Sakura and her new situation beg to differ. Post timeskip. DeiSaku.
- Notes: It's a pretty interesting premise, even if it isn't completely original The romance isn't too fast or slow, but progresses rather naturally; nor are the characters ridiculously OOC. Complete.
Truth Unfolds in Wave
- Recommended by: Athena1337
- Synopsis: Set in a diverging timeline where Naruto brought Sasuke back from the Valley of the End - Sasuke is eighteen, Sakura and Naruto seventeen. They're still teammates and a strange kind of friends, though nothing more; Naruto still in love with Sakura, Sakura still in love with Sasuke, Sasuke still trying not to feel too much for either of them, and then due to Kyuubi's influence, here they are, the three of them in bed.
- Pairing(s): Naru/Sasu/Saku. Tons of other characters are seen in here - mostly canon, with a few originals worked in during... well, that would be telling, now wouldn't it?
- Tags: Lemon, once or twice, but there's a heads' up before any of that. Some violence, of course; this is Naruto we're talking about.
When Insanity Calls
- Pairing: Naru/Saku
- Recommended by Very Melon
- Synopsis: Six months before Naruto's return to Konoha, He is placed on a team of familiar faces who is being sent to Wave. Naruto wasn't expecting this mission to escalate to a life changing experience nobody would ever forget. Completed.
- Pairings: Sasori/Deidara (Main), Sasuke/Naruto, Itachi/Kisame.
- Recommended by: Legendia Advocate
- Synopsis: -AU shonen ai- -Saso/Dei, Kisa/Ita- Dumped in a mental institute, Sasori is befriended by a pyromaniac by the name of Deidara. With the help of Deidara, Sasori struggles to face the past he is so desperately trying to forget.
- Notes: Likely to not be continued. Currently ten chapters. Always in first person point of view with very few exceptions.
