[NaNo] Close Quarters 8/7 - Naruto - Naruto/Sakura

AHAHAHA WHAT. Apparently I lied. I was about to close the word doc for the fic but then I noticed the tab bar on the side wasn't at the bottom and I scrolled down and wtf there was a whole extra chapter that I hadn't factored in. Well, no, I'm lying again - now that I see it, I think I decided at the beginning not to include it because it introduced some OCs and I hated them, plus it was about to take the story in a new direction. I'm going to post it anyway because it's pretty long and there were some funny moments, but I won't cry if no one reads it.

Title: NARUTO AND SAKURA'S DOMESTIC ADVENTURES! Close Quarters, chapter SUPER SPECIAL BONUS
Series: Naruto
Length: 9109 words.
Character/pairing: Naruto/Sakura, Konoha ensemble.
Rating/warnings: Set about two years from current canon, so just speculation for future events. Rated M for lingerie?!
Summary: Her house, as she'd expected, was gone.

Sakura had, quite obviously, never been involved in something of this magnitude beforeCollapse )

Okay, I promise that is it from me. My eyes are so tired they're about to close so I'm going to bed. If you did end up reading it, let me know what you think, and if not, maybe next time, eh?

[NaNo] Close Quarters 7/7 - Naruto - Naruto/Sakura

We have an ad campaign here in Australia for the responsible service of alcohol, complete with dodgy acting and the awesome slogan "No more, it's the law!" That was just a segue into how there's finally no more of this fic - here we have it, the end of an era those long hard weeks of work in November. Like everything else I start, I honestly wish I could finish this. Fifty thousand of nothing is still nothing, however, and so I guess it wasn't meant to be.

Maybe now that I've purged this story from the dark recesses of my soul, I'll be able to write stuff again.

Maybe. ¬_¬

Rating/warnings: Set about two years from current canon, so just speculation for future events. Rated M for lingerie?!
Summary: Her house, as she'd expected, was gone.

The compulsion to yawn burned at the back of her throat and she tensed her jawCollapse )

Again, I wish I could have written more, but my brain went the way of Toriyama-kun's, unfortunately. But, if all goes to plan, I should be able to start a new fic very soon.

Wish me luck, guys~! ♥

[NaNo] Close Quarters 6/7 - Naruto - Naruto/Sakura

I just watched a show with my housemate that involved a man called Gordon Ramsey, and now my life seems about 23948209348 times better than the poor sods in his kitchen. THE WORLD IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE.

Also, INOINOINOINOINO.

I really really really like cup ramen.

[NaNo] Close Quarters 3/7 - Naruto - Naruto/Sakura

I really hate where I am as a 'writer' at the moment. The laziness that has always ruled every other aspect of my life has finally slithered in and taken control of my creativity, and now whenever I do get a rare stab of inspiration, I can't bring myself to lift a pencil or otherwise commit to anything because I know I'll never finish it/I won't be satisfied with it anyway. I keep second-guessing myself and it's trapping me in this cycle of inactivity.

So, yet another attempt to get me out of this funk. Let's see if I can finally just get these damn chapters out of the way - I'm sick of them hanging over my head. I'm unhappy with most of this one, a lot of Sakura's thoughts are very messy and muddled, but I'm too over this story to care at this point. Also it's nearly midnight and I have to work tomorrow. RARGH!

Title: NARUTO AND SAKURA'S DOMESTIC ADVENTURES! Close Quarters, chapter three
Series: Naruto
Length: 4899 words.
Character/pairing: Naruto/Sakura, Konoha ensemble.
Rating/warnings: Set about two years from current canon, so just speculation for future events. Rated M for lingerie?!
Summary: Her house, as she'd expected, was gone.

The best thing to do, Sakura decided, would be to skip townCollapse )

And I don't know why I spelt mum as 'mom' - it just felt more natural in that setting. Go figure.

[FIC] Open Doors - Ghost Hunt - Mai, Lin, Naru

I think I've lost count of the number of entries here that start with, "So I was talking to Molly and she challenged me to write a fic..." because that's pretty much the only writing I get done now. Impromptu stuff can be fun, but I really wish I could sit down and apply myself to something, to create a plot and follow it through. Instead I keep churning out random stuff like this, and when I saw random, I actually mean it.

To give you fair warning, Molly and I were discussing the likelihood of Lin being a sex god under the guise of an emotionally-stunted xenophobe. The result? YES WE THINK HE JUST MIGHT BE.

Me: Mmmm sex god Lin
Molly: ;D I wouldn't say no to that
Molly: HE'S TALL
Me: SO TALL
Me: I so want to write a crack fic now
Me: About Lin being a sex god
Molly: You'd never do it though
Molly: WHY EVEN TEASE ME?!
Molly: TEASE
Me: I'M SORRY
Me: Will you be going to bed soon? :(
Me: Because I could whip you something up now
Molly: Oh please
Molly: WHIP AWAY
Me: OKAY

So I did.

Title: Open Doors
Series: Ghost Hunt
Length: 1473 words, oneshot.
Character/pairing: Mai, Lin, Naru.
Rating/warnings: UTTER CRACK. I'd rate it PG for leading dialogue, but there's actually nothing of a lemony nature. Written in less than half an hour, so I seriously doubt all the spelling/grammar is awesome, although I did check it quickly when I coded it.
Summary: Nope, that was definitely Lin, but as she’d never heard him before.

Mai let herself into the SPR officeCollapse )

[NaNo] Close Quarters 2/7 - Naruto - Naruto/Sakura

Second part of seven. Every time I code one of these chapters, I'm struck by the overwhelming urge to keep writing this story, but then I remember how it was going nowhere and...yeah. *sighs*

Title: NARUTO AND SAKURA'S DOMESTIC ADVENTURES! Close Quarters, chapter two
Series: Naruto
Length: 3484 words.
Character/pairing: Naruto/Sakura, Konoha ensemble.
Rating/warnings: Set about two years from current canon, so just speculation for future events. Rated M for lingerie?!
Summary: Her house, as she'd expected, was gone.

Sakura rolled her eyesCollapse )

[NaNo] Close Quarters 1/7 - Naruto - Naruto/Sakura

I think this is the last fic in my TBC folder, and I wish very much that I'd been able to do more with the idea. But when you hit chapter eight of a story and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAS HAPPENED it's a pretty clear indicator that you're doing something wrong. *sighs*

Feel free to rip this stuff apart - it's pretty much the most recent thing I've worked on, so it's going to be a good example of my current writing style. That said, I never got around to the editing stage, so expect some crappiness. When I write, I generally run with an idea, and if I don't know what word to use in a sentence, rather than pausing and interrupting the flow of thought, I just type ________ and keep going. When I coded this chapter I filled in the _______s pretty quickly and so there may be some less-than-awesome choices.

BUT HOLY SHIT BEK, STOP TRYING TO JUSTIFY STUFF!

Sorry!

Title: NARUTO AND SAKURA'S DOMESTIC ADVENTURES! Close Quarters, chapter one
Series: Naruto
Length: 5162 words.
Character/pairing: Naruto/Sakura, Konoha ensemble.
Rating/warnings: Set about two years from current canon, so just speculation for future events. Rated M for lingerie?!
Summary: Her house, as she'd expected, was gone.

Tsunade took the moment of confused silence that followed the comment to dump a load of paperwork in Sakura’s armsCollapse )

[FIC] Untitled - Naruto - Sakura, Kabuto

I think I've mentioned before that the only writing I do now is stuff quickly cobbled together in response to challenges set by nushi_akubi. I was procrastinating today, unwilling to start cleaning my room, when she announced that she wanted some Kabuto/Sakura, and she wanted it NOW. Obligingly, I threw this together, and while it's not Kabuto/Sakura, it does have both characters in it...so...yeah. Anyway, I dashed this out in about 20 mins, so don't expect much - it's part of my new plan, to post everything I write, regardless of quality. Growing as a writer, and all that. (And I wanted to show that I'm not all talk. Just mostly.)

Title: Untitled
Series: Naruto
Length: 1304 words.
Character/pairing: None, just Sakura and Kabuto. And then Naruto and Sai, in a lame attempt to tie things up.
Rating/warnings: Vague allusions to manga stuff with Orochimaru?
Summary: An unexpected meeting, the expected result.

As best she could tell, they were aloneCollapse )
