Kushina wants a baby girl, and what Kushina wants Kushina gets. For a scrawny orphan with dreams too big, pink or blue really don’t matter, especially when little Naruto prefers orange any way.
Gaara of the Sand may be a fearsome shinobi at fifteen, but nobody ever said he was a pro at weathering life, puberty, and the politics of physical union between states.
AU. Naruto with Kushina’s chakra chain and barrier power. Gaanaru.

Naruto isn’t gay they said. He thinks other men are gross they said. Well if frequently turning yourself in to a gay orgy doesn’t make you even the slightest bit gay, I don’t know what does.

Q: Hey! I heard Book Three of Korra sounds really promising, and supposedly has tons of Korrasami moments. You had mentioned before that you had lost interest because of the HUGE disappointment that is the development of Korra (I feel u man), but it looks like there'll be more Lin too
I heard the same too and while I was skeptical at first, rumors of a much less obnoxious and much more mature Korra makes me water at the mouth. I’m one of those nostalgic people who couldn’t quite forget that naive, wide-eyed sheltered girl of ep 1-2 of Season 1 Legend of Korra and wept when she was so badly handled.
The non-existent toxic love triangle is another big thing to look at. Female friendship and character development is icing on top. And of course, there’s Lin… but I still fear the possibility of her being manhandled.
I guess we will see. If the writers have learned anything about respecting the levels of their audience from the complete disaster that is Korra season 2 and the absolute garbage teenage love triangle (which I think is an insult to teenagers with some modicum of sense to them), then perhaps this Season 3 may stand a chance of making up for its predecessor’s follies.

Q: Ahh long reads. lok/atla, hp, naruto are all fine with me. i don't suppose you know any good rule!63 stories? romance, humor, angst, adventure, tragedy are good too.
So sorry for answering this one so late. Right after receiving this question of yours, my usual editorial cycle (that time when writers/journalists/editors/photographers go a little batshit insane under the pressure of the horrifying publication deadline and the mounting workload) descended upon in all its hypnotizing and terrifying glory and I must succumb if I wanted to live and go on to write more stories for my dear readers!!!! I must succumb or it will eat me alive!!!
… Anywho… without further ado, my recs:
Uhh… sorry to say that I don’t really read that much of LOK/ATLA. The ones I actually like tend to be short one shot. So far… I have no actually found any multi-chapter fic that really makes me quiver a little bit.
II. Harry Potter (boy oh boy):
1/ Almost a Squib by BajaB
Summary: What if Vernon and Petunia were even more successfull in ‘beating all that nonsense’ out of Harry? A silly AU story of a nonpowerful, but cunning, Harry.
Why it’s here: it’s funny (in this dark, sarcastic way that comments a lot on the idiosyncrasies of a world where the strongest, not necessarily the wisest, the most effective, the most driven, the most kind, or the ones with the greatest vision of the future, rule every one else). It’s original. It’s bold in its pop philosophy. And it’s complete!!
2/ Evil Be Thou My Good by Ruskbyte
Summary: Nine years ago Vernon Dursley brought home a certain puzzle box. His nephew managed to open it, changing his destiny. Now, in the midst of Voldemort’s second rise, Harry Potter has decided to recreate the Lament Configuration… and open it… again.
3/ Harry Potter and the Hero’s Path by TheJackOfDiamonds
Summary: AU Ritually abused by the Dursley’s, young Harry Potter learns to count on himself. After discovering magic at a young age, he practices to become stronger to protect those weaker than him.
4/ Hit The Ground Running by Tozette
Summary: The Horcrux in Harry’s head wakes up and begins talking to Harry long before he’s ever heard the name Voldemort. Philosopher’s Stone AU. Warnings for some instances of child abuse. No pairings. (No, seriously, no pairings.)
Summary: As per the Hat’s decision, Harry gets Sorted into Slytherin upon his arrival in Hogwarts - and suddenly, the future isn’t what it used to be. Spoilers for all books.
(Well-written rule 63 one shot)
Summary: Voldemort has a little fun with the Elder Wand before he dies, and minds are screwed with afterward. Potters always go for redheads. The Peverells were necrophiles. So Harry likes…? Crack, light Gryffindor/fem!Harry, DH AU oneshot
7/ Steps Far From Paradise
by Lady Salazar
(in the case your taste of rule 63 goes to the darker spectrum. Mine goes both way)
Grimmauld Place is a house that has seen many wars, and as Harlas Lily Potter discovers, some magical wars never truly end… Slytherin/fem!HP. Sorta. OotP-era AU, Dark themes
8/ The Dragonmasters
AU. Harry Potter disappeared! While the Wizarding world sink into war, Harry is thrown in a whole new world and left to fend for himself. He will have to prove himself worthy of bonding to the long thought dead Magical Dragons and becoming a Dragonmaster.
9/ The Wizard of Gotham
After failing to cheat Bruce Wayne on a deal for drills, Vernon Dursley takes his frustrations out on Harry Potter, by abandoning him in Gotham City.
10/ Harry Potter and the Spirit’s Heart
by LoneWolf218 reviews
During the chaos of the World Cup, Harry stumbled across a mysterious corpse. Now haunted by thoughts not his own, he must survive the rise of his mortal enemy, the Dark Lord Voldemort. Harry will need every bit of courage he can muster to survive. (Harry Potter / Dragon Age crossover)
11/ The Prince That Was Promised
He remembered being Harry Potter. He dreams of it. He dreams of the Great Other too, a creature borne of ice and death with eyes red as blood and an army of cold, dead things. He is only the 2nd son of the King, a spare, but that changes when things rather left in the dark come to light, and Westeros is torn asunder by treachery and ambition. Winter is coming… but magic is might. (Harry Potter / Game of Thrones crossover)
12/ It’s a Mad, Mad World
Souls are tricky things, especially when some don’t come on time and others come too early. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, Harry has to go find out what is wrong and fix it. It’s been a while since he’s walked amongst the living though, and even longer since he’s interacted with them. Still, he’ll have some fun poking around in the meantime. (Harry Potter / One Piece crossover)
(Here’s a nice rule 63 fic. A case of Naruto born female and not transformation. But this fem Naruto is written very naturally and while the fic is definitely more the fluff and feel good type, it does not feel forced at all and can be very entertaining and , at times, rather hilarious. I certainly enjoyed it)
Iruka always told her that skipping out on the Academy lectures would come back to bite her on the ass one day. At least the confidentiality clause of this latest mission would keep her from having to hear “I told you so.” Kakashi/femNaru
2/ Naruto: Ramen Days
After dying at the end of the Sand-Sound Invasion, Naruto finds that his life is governed by a strange set of rules that he is still trying to figure out. VideoGame!Naruto
The Yondaime hadn’t miscalculated. And he wasn’t all that golden either. An angelic exterior hides far more sinister motives. Long live the Hokage.
(This is about the only Naruto gets a cool bloodline limit that I like. The bloodline limit in question is inspired and based on the ability of a manga series. It is, in the simplest way, the ability to see the ‘death’ of all things and be able to trigger this death before it is due. The development as well as progression of the ability as well as Naruto’s adjustment to it is well-written and paced. So is the way other people and the world react to it.)
Naruto has an unpleasant encounter, and gains an equally unpleasant power. But how much of his power is gifted, and how much is his own?
5/ Spying no Jutsu
Disguised as a girl, Naruto will spy on Kage level kunoichi at the Cute Polar Bear Hot Springs Festival. On a related note, Sasuke deals with his growing attration to a mysterious new kunoichi. Also, the first ever Iruka Love Polygon. That I’m aware of.
A few mishaps and some awkward observations lead Gaara and Naruto to question their sexuality and the nature of their friendship.
7/ The Eyes Have It
by Shana the Short
(a rare Sakura develops an eye-based bloodline limit. The sudden appearance, subsequent development and progress of the ability is handled very well. It’s not a hax ability like many other failures. Sakura as a character is affected by her sudden budding power and slowly, but very realistically, matured past her canon fangirl stage. A very nice read. It’s finished with the promise of a possible sequel)
[FANOWRIMO CHALLENGE] Most people seem to think that developing a doujutsu is a wondrous, unspeakably lucky occurrence. Considering that she now has to deal with an ability she has no idea how to use, family drama, fashion crises, and the world’s most rude and vulgar doctor, on top of getting to know her new genin team just after graduation…needless to say, Sakura begs to differ.
(If you ever need a good, long chuckle while reading Naruto fic, this one is for you)
Naruto makes a good shinobi, but a lousy weapon. Danzo has finally managed to connive Naruto into Root, or so he believes. Naruto, who will now be within reach of his emotionally inept, traumatized, fanatical devotees. What on earth was he thinking?

Q: Do you have any fic recs?
Too many to be honest. What kind of stories do you want? Fandom? Genres (e.g. adventure, humor, fantasy, romance, etc…)? Pairings (or lack there of)? Length? Themes?

Q: Anyway, thank you for giving me such a good read and I hope you won't give up in finishing Tis Femina! I don't know if people have asked you these questions before already but: 1)Are you a woman?(I'm betting on this to be a yes) 2)Are you updated with Naruto? 3)How are you lately? 4)What fic are you working on right now? (Since I saw your update schedule, I want to fuel my hopes on TF being updated soon) 5)How did you learn English? I hope some of these questions aren't too personal for you.
I won’t give up hope of finishing Tis Femina either! :D
As for your questions:
1/ There are as many people who think I am a woman as there are people who think I am a man. I have been called sir, bro, dude, pal, that crazy guy who wrote Tis Femina, sis, I bet that’s a girl (this one coming from a guy who followed Tis Femina for years and replied to criticize every chapter. He has a funny way to show his support), etc…
To be honest, I have never thought my physical gender (I am asexual, though not aromantic, so that may have something to do with it) should be a huge deal. A writer is a writer is a writer. My real life pen name for my professional work is also a unisex one so people don’t actually know my real gender (many times I turned up for interviews and surprised them when I didn’t appear the way they thought I would. I deliver plot twist even in real life!!!!)
I’m curious though. Why are you so sure that I’m a woman? This question is also to all of my readers who see this post. Why do you think I am a woman/man?
2/Yes I am updated with Naruto. I started to reread it from the first chapter the other day. It fills me with nostalgia. I remember that I first started reading it when I was still a wee highschooler.
3/ I’m good. Really busy with my writing assignments and my story-boarding job. I just saved enough to buy my first house. It’s a run down old thing but with a bit of money can be renovated into a charming abode. I can’t wait!!!!
4/ I’m currently working on From the Garden of Gods (the 3rd chapter which I hope to finish in a week). I was bitten by the inspiration bug and it’s not leaving me alone. After this phase past, I will get back to my usual roster, starting with Cognates of Heaven, followed by Ascend, followed by Book Air, then followed by Tis Femina, then coming all the way back to Mirror Mirror.
5/ How did I learn English? I myself couldn’t quite answer that question. I used to be very bad at that you see. I used to be the deadlast in my English class and couldn’t even understand when the teacher gave me a 2 out of 10 for my Eng paper along with the comment “Very Bad!” I thought she was complimenting me since at the time the only Eng phrase I know that had very was ‘Very good’. Then one day I happened upon a fic (I think it was a Hunter x Hunter fic) that I really liked but since my English was so abysmal I couldn’t read all of it. In my frustration, I swore to improve my Eng… and… well.. you know how the rest went. So I basically taught myself Eng by reading and writing copious amount of fics… which eventually gave me writing skill enough so that I can start professional Eng writing.

Q: I've been looking at your posts and noticed the lack of posts rooting for Tis Femina, and this is what brought on my urge to "Ask". I find it simply astounding that a non-native speaker of English could write such a beautifully thought out Naruto fic that has almost everything I want in a fic (plot wise, length wise, grammar wise, not so on updating but, beggars can't be choosers). I hope I haven't offended you with my statements.
How can you offend me with that glowing praise!!???
Anyhow, I’m glad you enjoyed it!
