Summary: The devil is in the details. Shisui. Itachi. A sorta love story. Novella.

Reccer's Notes: An interesting cocktail of humor and drama- Shishui as a narrator is hilarious. The minutiae of daily shinobi life is somehow made interesting. Danzo is called "resident ghoul and esteemed leader of the Vampiric Assholes Squad", and if that doesn't say it all I don't know what does.

But it's not all happytimes; this is set directly before the Uchiha Massacre, and as Itachi's Uchiha best-friend-maybe-more, he's intrinsically involved in the Uchiha coup drama. He doesn't actually know everything, though, and the underlying thread of tension throughout the lightheartedness is wonderfully done.

(Knowing what is to come is... very depressing.)

And, ooh, the characterization. Baby Sasuke is adorable, Itachi is not an actual emotionless rock, the Hokage is neatly balanced between Too-Sentimental Grandpa and Machiavellian Shinobi Leader, Shishui is despite his personality still an Uchiha, and Danzo is a manipulative bastard.

Summary:A body floats downstream, currents eddying about the slender fingers, the waterlogged bandages, the long pale hair that spreads out like sunlight’s reflection on water. Her name was Yugito Nii, and her dream has ended.
Excerpt )

Reccer's Notes: A look into a minor character of the Naruto universe. Touching and somewhat depressing, because jinchuuriki do not lead happy lives.

Reccer's Notes:
A short but lovely character piece on Uchiha Sasuke. Unusual writing style, with some clever use of parentheses, but rather fitting all things considered.
