Much Needed EncouragementShe couldn't help but be mesmerized by his boldness. He never paid attention. He was always talking. And yet, somehow this annoying brat still seemed to be near the top of his class at the Academy.Much Needed Encouragement by chakragoddess
"Nara...," she heard him whisper. When there was no response, he whispered a little louder. "Nara..." She looked at the boy with the ponytail that sat in front of him. No reaction. "Nara!"
"Do you mind, Boruto Uzumaki?" Aburame-sensei turned away from the board to look squarely at the blonde source of his irritation.
"Wha - huh?" Boruto exclaimed. Giggles could be heard. He seemed absolutely clueless that his antics were actually causing a disruption to the class.
Aburame-sensei sighed. "I was just about at the end of the lecture anyway." He stepped away from the board and returned to his desk at the front of the class. He started to rifle through a few papers.
She continued to watch Boruto, w
Wind and Fire Chapter 14Jento could see that he Black Ant-like puppet was now starting to open. This was his chance. His strategy to get to Kanoshi not through force, but through intelligence and dialogue had apparently worked.Wind and Fire Chapter 14 by chakragoddess
Jento continued to put up a front even while the opening in the puppet was still not large enough for him to fit through.
“One last thing,” Kanoshi started. “Will you join me in this fight against your comrades?”
“Fight those three? Of course!” Jento replied, still pretending that he had been turned.
“Wonderful. They are sure to be digging around my puppet shop even now. I’m so irritated that they are probably in there,” Kanohsi said. He was facing away from Jento, but he eventually turned to face him. “Now - ”
And with that, he stopped short. His hands instinctively grabbed his stomach. He noticed a liquid redness now spreading into his cl
Wind and Fire Chapter 13Kanoshi let both arms fall to his sides, presumably dropping his chakra strings. He closed his eyes and put his hands together to presumably begin his next attack.Wind and Fire Chapter 13 by chakragoddess
“It’s not a puppet!” shouted Kankuro. Kankuro sent Sasori towards Kanoshi. One of the doors on Sasori’s body opened, but before anyone knew it, there was a loud boom that hit right beside Sakura. Whatever it was, the wall next to her came crumbling down. Where the wall had been now stood a gigantic statue (or could it have been some sort of puppet). Whatever it was, it wasn’t moving now so its purpose must have been to do what it just did….push the stone wall down on someone.
Sakura’s three teammates instinctively ran towards her. They converged on where she was (she was still visible, even with some rubble on top of her).
“Jento, keep an eye on Kanoshi. Make sure he doesn’t attack us while we’re h
Wind and Fire Chapter 12The room in which Sai was located was very dark. Kankuro called out to Sakura and Jento and before long, all three shinobi were in the room, flashlights on, trying to free Sai from his bonds. He had been tied with very thick rope and had a blindfold over his eyes.Wind and Fire Chapter 12 by chakragoddess
“What on earth happened to you?” Jento asked Sai.
“We should get out of this room,” was the only thing Sai said in response. “I find it very strange that something was left behind that I could kick around and make noise to signal you with. We still don’t know what he’s up to.”
Kankuro’s flashlight moved around and eventually spotted a small metal tea kettle not far from Sai’s foot.
“Then why did you have us come here?” Kankuro asked.
Sai paused. “I guess that’s a good point, but it was my best strategy at the time. He casually mentioned he would be had to be in the village for an appointment at
Wind and Fire Chapter 11The next day, the four shinobi were getting ready to commence with their duties. Sai was dressed like a villager, as usual. The other three were in their usual shinobi garb since they were no longer trying to blend in or not be seen.Wind and Fire Chapter 11 by chakragoddess
“I’m leaving,” Sai said as he was about to walk out the door. In general, they did not leave together. Sai was not heading to the exact same spot as the other three anyway and they couldn’t risk being seen together around that house at all.
“Where to today?” Sakura asked.
“There is a large downed tree on the west side of the house in that small wooded area. I think I’ll sit there for the day,” said Sai.
“Sounds good. Be safe out there. We’ll be about 15 minutes behind you,” Sakura said.
“Can you hear me?” Sai asked once he was outside, making sure one-way radio communication was still working.
Wind and Fire Chapter 10Occurring at the same time Sai is near the field sketching….Wind and Fire Chapter 10 by chakragoddess
Sakura, Kankuro and Jento were bored for most of the day. Yes, they kept their eyes peeled for anything unusual. Sakura, of course, had radio contact with Sai so if anything were to happen at his end, she would immediately know. So, as you would guess, random conversations would pop up now and again to break the silence. Some were more boring than others, but at least it kept the time moving along. There really wasn’t anything for them to do other than monitor if Kanoshi would show up again.
“So how is it having Naruto as the Hokage,” Kankuro asked Sakura.
“It’s different….and yet again, at the same time, it’s not. I’ve been around him so long that even the slight changes he’s made since taking over from Lady Tsunade haven’t been too difficult to adjust to,” said Sakura.
“I think I know what
First of all, thanks to Blindbandit5 for my avatar. I commissioned a banner from her for my blog and this was a lovely piece of it. She does great work!
I'm mostly a fanfic writer, both here and on fanfiction.net (there I am known as aangfan). www.fanfiction.net/u/2383742/a… I try to dabble in other things, but that's just fun stuff.
I started a fanfiction group called "Fanfiction for Fans". Please join. Why? Because I tend to write on the border of T/M rating and frankly, there aren't too many places to post where that kind of work will be accepted. Also, I write in many different universes. I started with Avatar: The Last Airbender (which will always have a special place in my heart). I then wrote Dragon Ball and Bleach. And I'm sure I will branch out as I have greatly enjoyed both InuYasha and Fruits Basket manga/anime with Full Metal Alchemist underway as well.
Here are my works thus far:

My Opinion on Shipping
I write this because I love romance and shipping in the fandom. I just when I read a good get-together.
I don't care what you ship. Some are weird to me....others are just ok. I have my fav's, but those who are rude and crude because someone else ships something different? You're a loser! The most important thing is that the art is good or the story is written well. PERIOD.
