Title: Fire and Ice
Ship: Older!Hitsugaya/Matsumoto, some Matsu/Gin
Summary: Sequel to the author's first story called Blood and Ashes. BaA does not need to be read to understand this fic; continuing the story of HitsuMatsu. Hitsugaya is older and he and Matsumoto are still figuring things out. It starts out fluffy but turns into a VERY intriguing mystery/drama. Becomes AU later on. Dark & angsty with some adult themes, language, etc. IN PROGRESS
Dragon Ball Z
Title: Chains and Shackles
Summary: Somehow, the proud Prince of Saiyans is stranded on Gaia, wearing a ki dampening collar and enslaved by a certain blue haired "Mistress." The first multi-chaptered fic I ever read featuring this couple. I re-read it recently and it's still just as good.
**Title: The Red Dragon Tetrology
Summary: After the Majin Buu Saga, an old enemy returns to destroy the Saiyajins of Chikyuu (Earth) and take over the universe with the help of the Red Dragonballs. Just what are these Red Dragonballs? Who is this old enemy? Read and unravel the incredible universe that Lisalu has created. This story is long and inspring. She literally creates another reality. Impressively written and is the best DBZ fic I've ever come across. However, it is was ABANDONED after the first 2 chapters of the 4th book. The good thing is there are THREE other books containing several long chapters before that cut-off point. Read at ur own risk!
Title: World Enough and Time
Ship: Bulma/Vejiita, mentions of Bulma/Raditz
Summary: An A/U fic in which after the destruction of Earth, Bulma joins the Saiyans in the fight against Freeza. I found this story the summer after 10th grade and would re-read it often.
Title: Duty Before Honor
Ship: Sakura/Kakashi, slight Sasuke/Naruto
Summary: Sakura knew why Tsunade didn’t want a virgin on this mission. Things might get out of hand. Acts might be carried too far. She was glad Kakashi was accompanying her, but as things developed she wouldn’t have minded the entire population of Konoha tagging along. Sounds cliched right? WRONG. This story is action packed, humorous, filled with drama, sensuality and a little bit of romance. Great read.
Title: In Stone
Summary: When it looks like everything might be taken away, Gaara can at least be grateful that he doesn't have to meet his challenges alone. Sakura finds Gaara badly injured and helps him get his strength back. Again, this might sound cliched but it isn't. A very real and in depth look at the life of a Kazekage.
**Title: Pain Binds Us
Summary: He would break her a little more each day. Each night something of who she was would be erased. She wondered if eventually there would be nothing left except what he wanted her to be. So first things first...this is a SANDCEST fic. If this offends u or grosses u out in anyway, just keep on scrolling. The most acurate depiction of Gaara I've read and an insanely wicked type of character development; akin to that of Harry Potter. This fic has convereted me to sandcest and has made Gaara and Temari my newest OTP! My favorite Naruto fic to date. Awaiting the sequel!
Summary: Tension permeated the air as she waited, counting minutes until the inevitable. Waiting had always been the worst part. Again, this is a SANDCEST fic. If this disturbs you, just keep scrolling! If not, then be prepared for a GREAT fic. So extremely well done, it leaves you wanting more. Long One-shot.
Summary: The Akatsuki think Sakura will be the perfect bait to lure the Kyuubi but they get a whole lot more than they planned for. A story about the blurred line between good and evil and how what we think we know can be proven very, very wrong. Dwelves into the Akatsuki point of view and Itachi's twisted mind. Questions the who/what/where/when/why of what it means to be good and what it means to be evil. The best portrayal of Itachi/other and quite possibly the best Naruto fic I've ever read.
Title: Silver Lining
Summary: Sequel to Perception. Eight years ago they said goodbye forever. Now, when they have both lost everything, fate has thrown them together again in the most unlikely of ways.
Title: Still Waters Run Deep
Summary: Hinata stumbles across a heavily injured Sasuke in the forest and smuggles him into her house. With her father away, anything could happen. An attempt to write SasuHina somewhat realistically without glossing over Sasuke's MAJOR ISSUES. This story is heavily detailed and very emotional. Divulges Sasuke's psyche and relationships in a no holds bar way. Not for the faint of heart! IN PROGRESS (slow updater)
**Title: The Valley of the WIldflowers
Ship: General, includes varitions of all ships and nothing stays the same
Summary: As another fan aptly says "this is the weirdest, one of the longest and overall the best fanfic I have ever read. Its... really hard to describe but it rules. Its another version of the first season. Its an Alternate Universe fic. If you have a lot of time on your hands I suggest you read this. If you don't, I wouldn't get into it. It really is hard to stop reading it. I read it during finals week, that was not the best idea." A winding and involved tale that deals with who Naru, Nephrite, and all the scouts and dark kingdom kings really are...Endymion and Beryl too! Includes angels, hell fire, tragedy and a shit load of new characters. This story has stood the test of time. It is almost 10 years old. SIMPLY THE BEST SAILOR MOON FANFIC EVER WRITTEN!
Title: Two Plants and a Girl
Ship: Knives/Meryl, hints of Meryl/Vash
Summary: Meryl becomes more important to Vash than he wants to admit. But Knives sees it. Knives capitalizes on it. But he finds it increasingly difficult to exploit the Insurance girl, for reasons far too old, and not buried deep enough.
