Naruto Fanfiction
Recommendations List

A Prior Warning:
Most of the fanfics on this list are yaoi/shounen-ai stories.
In other words, they contain boy/boy love and/or sex.
Each adult fanfic has an appropriate rating warning.
Thank you! ^_^

Last Update: September 2012


For a Dream by insteadofdeath
Pairing: SasuNaru
Summary: Nearly two decades ago, Konoha was destroyed by the Kyuubi. Now two boys visit Konoha's ruins, each searching for something different. Instead, they find each other.
Nettie's Note: I found this fanfic by accident but I was amazed by it. It is a gorgeous piece of writing. A nice, long one-shot. Well worth a read!

Brotherhood Contract by xXloveless19Xx
Pairing: KakaNaru
Warning: AU, sex
Summary: Naruto is looking for a sensei to teach him the way of the samurai. He encounters Kakashi who's well known for his formidable swordsmanship. Naruto begs Kakashi to take him as his apprentice and he accepts, but only if Naruto agrees to a contract...
Nettie's Note: I usually only enjoy KakaNaru for the cuteness factor, but this fanfic is an exception. Well-written and sexy. A very enjoyable read.

Say Hello To Your New Partner by firefly
Summary: Kakuzu was told he’d receive his seventh and final partner in a week. He wasn’t sure he liked the evil, conniving glint in the Leader’s eyes when he told him that his new partner would be special.
Nettie's Note: Hilarious crackfic. Still makes me laugh even after all these years.

Stiff Competition by mischief maker 2.0
Warnings: Sexual boasting
Summary: "So. I hear you’re trying to take my title." - What can the top dog do but harass the new guy? Genma vs. Naruto
Nettie's Note: Genma and Naruto boast about their sexual conquests. Really funny stuff.

Parallels by et2brute
Pairing: GaaNaru
Warnings: Implied sex
Summary: After Gaara's resurrection Naruto can't sleep the night before they return to Konoha and pays Gaara visit.
Nettie's Note: A powerful and well written story. This is one of the better GaaNaru fics I've read.

Callow Lamb by firefly
Pairings: Hidan/Female OC
Warnings: Darkfic
Summary: Fair hair had shone through the darkness, slicked back and framing a slender, pale face. His lips were quirked almost mischievously, a contrast to his bright eyes, and she found herself wondering how a grown man could look so…angelic.
Nettie's Note: A dark look into the life of Hidan, in all his religious glory and angelic good looks. Marvellously written. This story is bound to haunt your thoughts and change your perspective of Hidan. Yes, the female character is an original but it makes the story all the better. Hidan fans (like me) will adore this story.

Surrender by Triste
Pairing: ItaNaru
Warnings: Major nose-bleed-inducing smuttage (
Summary: Itachi has hot sex with Naruto when Jiraiya is away.
Nettie's Note: Awesome sex scenes and brilliant writing. What more could you ask from a One-Shot? If you like ItaNaru, then this is definitely the fic for you.

Darkest Desires by Triste (Sequel to Surrender)
Pairing: ItaNaru
Warnings: Heavily-implied sex
Summary: Funny how one night can suddenly change everything and turn your whole world upside down. Sasuke learns the truth about Naruto and how Itachi managed to make his way into his life.
Nettie's Note: Sasuke watches in disbelief as his older brother screws his best friend. Okay, that was crude, but the fic isn't, so read it. Unlike Surrender, Darkest Desires does not have a full sex scene, it's far more implied, but just as good.

Pet Him Backwards by FlamesEmbrace
Pairing: SasuNaru
Warnings: Sex
Summary: You only hurt the ones you love especially if you only love the one you hate. Tales of sparring matches and other things in the rain.
Nettie's Note: Ah, the sweet smell of SasuNaru rivalry. I just love those fics where they are in character and actually fight. Pet Him Backwards is one of the best. Any SasuNaru fan will thoroughly enjoy this.



(If you read these, please review)

Beyond War by Om0cha
Pairing: SasuNaru
Summary: The Fourth Shinobi War has ceased but the world continues to search for Naruto Uzumaki. The one entrusted to keep him hidden from both sides can only wait for a day that never seems to come, for the day when he can finally remind him, breathe.
Nettie's Note: My favourite fanfic. Epic plot, everyone's in character and the descriptions and dialogue are spot on.

Mark of the Fox by Twisted Vixen
Pairing: ItaNaru
Warnings: AU, graphic violence
Summary: A serial killer is on the loose in Konoha. Capt. Itachi Uchiha is heading the case. But as he gets more involved in the case – and more involved with the only coherent survivor – he finds out that it's much bigger than he ever thought.
Nettie's Note: Very disturbing at times. Poor Naruto! I love this story, but I wish it was updated again!

Hyakumensou by Agni
Pairing: ItaNaru
Warnings: Sex
Summary: A contract signed eighteen years ago has turned Naruto's life upside down. How will he cope with this new, troubling development in his life that he cannot escape?
Nettie's Note: One of my favourites. Updates are few and far between, but I'm hopeful it will be completed one day! :)

Drowning by NoNoWriter
Pairing: SasuNaru
Warning: AU
Summary: Being at the top of school hierarchy, it was Sasuke's 'duty' to make Naruto's life hell. Until the boy saved his life, leaving Sasuke to drown in feelings of regret.
Nettie's Note: Lovely stuff. It's heartbreaking at times, but it's also sweet. The writer is apparently rewriting this story.

Breaking Apart by cloudydayz
Pairing: SasuNaru
Warning: Sex, rape
Summary: A love story between a sadistic, possessive Sasuke and a damaged, vulnerable Naruto.
Nettie's Nest: This story is told from the alternating POVs of Naruto and Sasuke. I love how different they are. Sasuke knows what he wants and he's ruthless about it. Naruto is broken and fragile but frustration and anger simmer beneath the surface. Well worth a read! Don't know if it will ever be updated though.

White, Surge Red by Sugahlei
Pairing: SasuNaru
Warnings: Sex, some gore
Summary: Sasuke does a bad thing. Everything changes, Naruto doesn’t care …but then, he’s got a different reason to live now.
Nettie's Note: One of my favourite SasuNaru fics. Insane Sasuke is written very powerfully. And the complicated relationship that develops between Naruto and Sasuke is bound to draw you in.


Missing Pieces by Rosa Lui
Pairing: SasuNaru
Summary: When Konoha's walls are breached and the embodiment of its heart and soul is stolen away, the only person who can help is the one thought to be long past redemption.
Nettie's Note: Pure excellence. I enjoyed every minute of it. It's a multi-chapter fic, but it seemed to fly by for me!

This Place is a Prison by tsubaki-hana
Pairing: ItaNaru
Summary: Strongly then kindly forcing a decision. Itachi will do anything to complete his mission.
Nettie's Note: A beautifully-written story about Naruto's depression as he waits to die at the hands of Akatsuki, and the strange relationship he develops with the silent Uchiha Itachi. The writing style is just perfect for this story.

Skinless by Shivvlan
Pairings: SasuNaru
Summary: It’s said that beauty is only skin deep and that to truly know a person you have to look beneath the flesh to the soul within the casing.
Nettie's Note: Read this fanfic and you're liable to fall in love with Sasuke. He is the protagonist of this story, and is kept in such perfect character that I almost wept. Okay, I didn't almost weep, but I was damn pleased. The fight scenes are simply amazing; you can really visualize Sasuke in action. An absolute must-read, even if you despise shounen-ai. There are only very light hints of SasuNaru affection. It has a sequel that is also very good - Underneath the Underneath. The sequel has far more SasuNaru.

Spiral Falling by BeccaAmon
Pairings: SasuNaru & Others
Warnings: AU, sex
Summary: Finding companionship and maybe more from your most hated rival. Falling willingly with arms wide open.
Nettie's Note: Very awesome high school fic. This is a fic that grabs you from the beginning. I wish all high school fics were as brilliant as this one.

Surface Flaws by ineXpressible
Pairing: SasuNaru, Implied SaiNaru
Warnings: Sex
Summary: Naruto had always thought that when Sasuke returned to Konoha things would continue from where they’d left off. When they don’t, he ends up wishing he were as invisible as he felt. It seems for once his wish may just come true.
Nettie's Note: A wonderfully written story, with some very creepy moments. The complications between Sasuke and Naruto are expressed perfectly.


That's it for now. I hope this list proves useful to you. Be sure to check back on this list for updates once in a while. Have fun reading, and remember to review! It only takes a minute and it means the world to the writer.
