Matters of State by Yahboobeh
  • Recommended by: Orchidperson969
  • Advertisement:
  • Status: Dead; last updated August 2015
  • Synopsis: Middle Ages AU! In a world that favors beauty, sex, murder and money, these young teens must find their place in the court of King Hiuzen [sic] Sarutobi. But when the king falls ill and dies, the succession of the throne becomes jumbled when an idiot prince is ill-prepared to rule, a missing princess returns, and a duke seeks revenge and the crown.
  • Pairings: Naruto/Hinata, Sasuke/Sakura, Neji/Tenten, Ino/Sai, Shikamaru/Temari, Ino/Shikamaru, Ino/lots of people, actually
  • Comments: Mostly focused on the tangled romantic lives of the various characters, this is a creative, well-written medieval AU, with an author who really knows her stuff when it comes to court life in Tudor England. Alas, only five chapters have been posted, and the fic hasn't been updated for years, so it seems that the many dangling plot threads may never be resolved. It does have quite a few semi-explicit sex scenes, so be warned.

A Stitch in Time by anoceaninthesun

  • Recommended by: jeya_013,Tropers/
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: The battle is over and Kaguya is no more. But for Sakura Haruno, it still isn't the place for her happy ending...or the time. Fresh from war, Sakura finds herself in a new era, on a new journey. While trying to find her footing, she finds something else unexpected: a place among legends. SakuraxFounders poly!endgame
  • Pairing: Founders/Sakura, Madara/Sakura, Hashirama/Sakura, Tobirama/Sakura, Izuna/Sakura
  • Tags: Romance, Adventure, Humor, Polyamory, Time Travel, Slowburn
  • Comments: What can i say? This is seriously a gem especially if you're someone who can't be satisfied with one end pair on sakura reverse harem fanfictions you have read. It has an awesome plot with an equally awesome writer. I like the pace of the story as you get to know the characters with a nice balance of development, plot, and character-wise. Try it, you might find yourself loving it!

Chase The Wind by kayura_sanada

  • Recomanded by: Blaidd Dunn
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Since before he could even remember, Gaara had heard the sound of the howling wind in the back of his mind. He always wished he could find the person on the other end of that sound, that elusive being who might love him for who he was.
  • Pairings: Naruto/Gaara
  • Comments: A story where Naruto and Gaara are soul mates despite being from different villages and one being a homicidal maniac. It starts as a simple retelling of the Chuunin exam arc emphasising the characterisation of both boys, but moves on to a For Want of A Nail AU where Gaara works to be worthy of Naruto's unfailing love and they struggle to be together in their situation. The way soulmates work in the ninja world, the benifts and dangers are worked in really well- it's no cheep gimmic but a core part of the world. If soul mate A Us aren't normally your thing this is a good place to try- everyone remains in character and the world works consistantly throughout. I normally dislike soulmate AUs but this is wonderful.

Blind by ObsidianSickle

  • Recommended by: Kurtulmak, Nitramy
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: It was almost time, Orochimaru was going to take his body as a vessel. He hated being used... He refused to be used. With that thought, he took the kunai in his hand and slashed across his eyes.
  • Pairing: Sasuke/Sakura
  • Tags: Romance, Family, Eye trama, slowburn

Cosmetic Fetters by lovebugga

  • Recommended by: jeya_013
  • Pairings: Sasuke/Sakura
  • Synopsis: In addition to his catalyzing gymnast career, he fancied pissing his too self-reliant makeup artist off. It's not like she could go anywhere; she was indentured by legal contract and vanity. Kind of like him.
  • Tags: Romance, Drama, Alternate Universe (AU)
  • Comments: A relatively new fanfic and was published on July 21,2017 with 7 chapters so far. As said from the synopsis, Sasuke is a gymnast with a narcissistic attitude who likes to piss sakura which happen to be his newly hired makeup artist. This is a refreshing read for me as i've never encountered a story with such concept before. The characterization were well portrayed along with very detailed description of scenes that you read. Give it a try, The updates are also quick so you won't have to have your eyes go white with the waiting.

Air and Darkness by wayofthepen

  • Recommended by Nitramy, Ack Sed, Arcane Azmadi, Khym Chanur
  • Status: Complete
  • 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.

Are You My Forever After? by Dana-Eliza

  • Recommended by beeruckzII
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Various
  • Synopsis: In a world where the name of your soulmate is written on your wrist, not everything is as easy as it seems. 9 stories are told. The struggles they have, how they deal with their soulmates and how some of them avoid theirs. Does a soulmate always mean a happy ending?
  • Comments: The chapters' layouts are quite unique and the concept itself is very original. And this is just the tip of the iceberg to a fantastic story! You really need to read it! Heck, I don't even like some of the pairings here and I think this story was well paced and put together! — beeruckzII
  • Warnings: Sexual references, swearing

Break to Breathe by Okami-Rayne

  • Recommended by AwayLaughing, Mycomp
  • Status: Complete
  • 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 some may hesitate over the rather strange pairing, rest assured all the characters are quite IC and beautifully depicted. Emotions and setting are very well incorporated into the mood of the story. It takes the author a few chapters to truly hit her stride, mostly in regards to pacing, but it's very well structured. The story is confirmed as following canon as closely as possible, working to incorporate original ideas where appropriate without refuting canon. — AwayLaughing
    • It's the first part of a series, and both this story and the rest of the series are complete. Very long, but well-paced, action-packed, no bashing of anyone, and the characters and their relationships with their teammates are well depicted and in canon. The original characters are necessary, interesting, and well-developed. The themes turn really dark at times, so heed the warnings if triggers are something you need to take into account. The dark parts are very respectfully portrayed, though. All in all, a masterful series. — Mycomp
  • Tags: Slash NSFW in regards to lemon and lime, as well as violence and death. Some non-explicit references to sexual violence and rape.

Child of War by homesweethomicide13

  • Recommended by beeruckzII
  • Notes: On DeviantART
  • Status: Might be dead since it hasn't been updated since February of 2013. The author says it's because of the story being stolen.
    • Vanished from the internet. Author has deleted it from every site it was uploaded on.
  • Pairing: Kakuzu/Hidan
  • Synopsis: He was just an orphaned teen, an abandoned child of war. Nothing new to rogue soldier, Kakuzu. So why does he feel the need to keep him at his side? AU.
  • Comments: This story is magnificent in the developing of Kakuzu's and Hidan's relationship. They - like all relationships - have their ups and downs and disagreements while staying by each other's sides. And they're also kept in character! Not to mention that instead of a full 69 years of age difference between them, there's only about 15!
  • Warnings: LOTS of swearing and cursing, violence, some blood, mentions of sensitive topics like slavery and death, and in the later chapters, the author has said there will be some sex scenes.

Closer by Lynns

  • Recommended by ASTK928, Pastykake
  • Status: Complete
  • 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 be outdated.
  • Tags: NSFW in regards to lemon and lime towards the middle chapters.

  • Recommended by Synonyms
  • Status: Dormant
  • Pairing: Kakashi/Obito
  • Synopsis: Left or right, forwards or back, there's always a choice. Obito chooses to return to Konoha, and the world rearranges itself from there. A series of non-chronological, interconnected shorts.

Duty Before Honor by SilverShine

  • Recommended by adelz2, Wint
  • Status: Complete
  • 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

Exceptions by IncessantOblivion

got a boy in the war by Lisse

  • Recommended by Tdwally
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Minato/Kushina
  • Synopsis: Naruto's parents don't so much fall in love as accidentally trip over it.
  • Notes: This is an old fic and has some assumptions about how the Kyuubi attack happened that are inaccurate. However, those only appear in the last part of the fic and are minimal enough that they can be more or less ignored without hampering your enjoyment.

The Greatest Thing You'll Ever Learn by QuartzApple

  • Recommended by Kittykittyface 230
  • Status: Complete
  • 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.

Hooray for bad Intel by Hawk

  • Recommended by fruitstripegum
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing(s): NaruHana.
  • Synopsis: One of the worst things that can befall a ninja, is going on a mission based on faulty Intel. But for Naruto and his temporary team-mate, it might just turn out to be the best thing to ever happen to them! Completed! Rare pairing!

How Uchiha Sasuke Romanced Haruno Sakura by Nakoujou

  • Recommended by Epic Vizard
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing(s): Sasuke/Sakura
  • Synopsis: Otousan? Romantic? PFFFF," Sousuke spat in disbelief. "You're as romantic as a hippo," added Kimiko dryly. "So Otouchan is a hippo?" Kenji quipped. Uchiha Sasuke smirked. It was about time his kids learned how he romanced their mother, Haruno Sakura.
  • Notes: Easily one of the best Naruto fics I've read. The author keeps with the canon of the time of her writing (2011-2012 if you were wondering) and hits characterization and character development spot-on. The Uchiha children in this fic are the best-written out of any fic I've read, and each child just grows on you. Its premise, events, and characters are those that can rival the canon in my opinion. The style of How I Met Your Mother was gracefully and fittingly used. Aside from a few grammar mistakes and a bit of a dragged-out middle part, this fic is extremely excellent.

La Belle Dame Sans Merci by elveljung

  • Recommended by Nero 81
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing(s): Naruto/Sasuke
  • Synopsis: Life goes on after Sasuke's departure, except for how it doesn't. Three years after Valley at the End, Naruto is trying to mend broken promises, and Sasuke's just trying not to break.
  • Tags: Dark themes.

Legends of the Foxwife by ladywinterfic

  • Recommended by rakku
  • Status: Complete (One-shots)
  • 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.

The Line by livezinshadowz

  • Recommended by ZeronosVega, Trixie Lulamoon
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Naruto/Ino
  • Synopsis: When a young Ino tries to use the Shintenshin for the first time on Naruto, something goes wrong and the two find themselves temporarily stuck in the other's body. A series of moments depicting the evolution of their relationship, from acquaintances to friends to something more, all by crossing that metaphorical line created when a boy and a girl forge a bond.
  • Comments: An extremely well written fanfic about what would've happened if Ino had decided to prematurely test her Shintenshin jutsu on Naruto before mastering it back in their Academy days, and how it would change the entire series as a result of this one small act. The pacing of their relationship is incredibly natural and fantastically well-done, and the characterization is spot on. Highly recommended.

Little Mouse by Stitchpuppy01

  • Recommended by beeruckzII
  • Status: Dead
  • Pairings: Gaara/Hinata, Naruto/Hinata
  • Synopsis: He is a predator, skillful, ruthless, and twisted. So why is it he cannot kill this one little mouse?
  • Comments: This is a very interesting and entertaining read that keeps everyone in character. Keep in mind that this is before Gaara's Heel–Face Turn. Sadly, it appears to be dead since it hasn't been updated since 2009... — beeruckzII

Man Of Dreams by ckret2

  • Recommended by: Soulseller, Xinette
  • Status: Complete
  • 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.

Missives in Pink by syaoran no hime

  • Recommended by Dellanotte
  • Status: Complete
  • 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.

Morning Glory by Ninja Sheik

  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Anko/Orochimaru
  • Synopsis: With vengeance on her mind, Anko struggles in a search to hunt down the man who ruined her life, Orochimaru. A new feeling starts to bloom within her as she is now thrust in a dangerous tempest of the darkest desire and passions of the heart.

Porcelain by Sepultus

  • Recommended by Nikkori 17
  • Status: Dormant
  • Pairings: Sasuke/Naruto
  • Synopsis: "His matted, sun bright hair is hard to miss. His tanned skin dirty from sleeping on the ground. Clothes faded and holey. Shoeless. An imperfection, a nobody, in the hot Poland summer heat of 1940. And despite all of this, he gets a perfect, porcelain skinned somebody to fall in love with him." Naruto's a young orphan boy living in war-torn Warsaw, Poland, naive and unaware of what's going on around him. He finds a home with a group of boys and they help each other survive the torments of living in the Warsaw ghetto and evading the "Jackboots", or the Nazi soldiers. All the while, Naruto falls in love with a German boy, Sasuke, but how could he ever love Naruto, a supposedly Filthy Son of Abraham?

Reincarnation by GeishaGirl93

  • Recommended by beeruckzII
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: "In a different life, in a different time and place, you would be my husband."
  • Pairings: Kabuto/Orochimaru
  • Comments: The raw beautiful emotion is so amazingly written and believable. If you enjoy this pairing, read this! — beeruckzII

Savior of the Blind and Broken by AkaYukiBloodySnow

  • Recommended by Robofeather
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Hinata/Kisame
  • 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,
  • Notes: Seems like an odd pairing at first, but the author makes it work extremely well. Itachi's character can seem a bit questionable, but overall a must-read for anyone looking for an interesting new pairing.

Still Life of an Annihilation by ckret2

  • Recommended by fsdfsdfsd
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: One-sided Madara/Deidara
  • Synopsis: Once, Madara would have given anything to make sure the young artist stayed free forever. But by the end, he just wanted to keep Deidara for himself. And that is how he destroyed the most beautiful thing in the world. Oneshot.
  • Comments: Thus far, the only example of this pairing that is neither crack nor smut, and actually done well. Unlike most slash works with Deidara in them, he's kept completely in character—which is why the story has no happy ending. Written before the revelation of Tobi's true identity, but after he claims to be Madara.

The sun within me by fangirlandiknowit

  • 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.

oh wise one by atomicmuffin

  • Recomended by: Blaidd Dunn
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Pairings: Shikamaru/Naruto/Hinata OT3
  • Synopsis : A good advisor would not waste time and brain resources pining for their Hokage. Or their Hokage's wife. Possibly both. Unfortunately, Nara Shikamaru was not that advisor.
  • Comments: Post series but pre-Boruto, this is perhaps the single sweetest and most well rounded poly romance and funny as hell to boot.

Legacy by cr4zypt

  • Recommended by Naru Hina Fan
  • Status: Complete Sequel: Dead (last updated January 2017) Alternate version: Dead; last updated March 2018
  • Pairings: Hinata/Naruto(Main)
  • Synopsis: Madara's lineage did not end at the valley of the end. His legacy lived on through Minato and into Naruto. Sharingan Naruto. Strong/Godlike! Naruto.
  • Comments: A great story that starts what if Madara was not killed at the Valley of the End and what if he had a child that would grow up to be the Yondaime Hokage.
  • Warnings: There is a lemon in one of the chapters, one of the main characters is murdered.
  • Has its own TV tropes page. Legacy

Eroninja by TheLemonSage

  • Recommended by Witchfinder
  • Status: Ongoing (With a number of spin-offs)
  • Pairings: Naruto/Multi
  • Synopsis: Naruto is given a scroll containing the secrets of making women fall for him, a scroll he uses at first on the women around him but soon on the shinobi world as a whole, giving birth to the Eroninja.
  • Comments: Let's get this out of the way: This fic is 50% harem and 50% story. The first quarter of the story contain the expected lemons as Naruto gets paired with virtually every named female in the series (as well as numerous other series, though they are woven into the story and are a part of the Naruto universe rather than it being a direct crossover). After around chapter 19 or so, the lemons slow down a tad and the story picks up around the start of Shipudden, with the various women in Naruto's family having a major impact in the story. That itself is this troper's favorite aspect of the story: The women aren't simply there for the harem; they play a massive part of the story and get massive screen-time (sometimes more than Naruto himself). Minor (female) characters are spared and are given immeasurable depth, and Heel–Face Turn are aplenty. The story is over 1 million words long, Trope Overdosed (it can be found already as an example in a number of pages on TV Tropes) and is divided into arcs. The writing style and characterization -especially Naruto as he becomes more experienced- may not be for everyone, but it is quite the ride if you're willing to stick around. This troper actually prefers this over to what Shippuden turned into.

He Makes Me Laugh by PunkInuzuka

  • Recommended by Darth Caesar
  • Status: Completed
  • Pairings: Naruto/Temari
  • Synopsis: Temari was a harsh, clever woman, but she loved for simple reasons. [NaruTema]
  • Comments: It's on the short side of fics, but it’s definitely develops the romance between Naruto and Temari well, albeit being fluff.

  • Pairings: Naruto/Hinata
