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: Sometimes, even the softest breath on still water can create tsunamis. Several weeks before meeting his genin team, Kakashi is sent to find a bounty hunter responsible for the deaths of five missing-nin, all rumored to be part of a secret organization. But Uzumaki Kurama is far different than anyone expected, and ripples are starting to spread.

Reccer's Notes: This is one of blackkat's fics, so. Fluff, slash, some plot buried under the fluff, introspection. Very relaxing fic to read. ...Most of the time.

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.
