Summary: During a diplomatic mission to Suna, Naruto and Sasuke discovertheir hormones, the Kazekage discovers he is rather annoyed by thisdevelopment, Sai discovers dog curry and Shikamaru discovers he standsalone as the sole pillar of common sense, against the rest of theworld. While wearing Temari’s skirt.
Why: The summary pretty much says it all. Penelope-Z writes brilliant crack with one-liners that a lot of writers (like myself) would love to be able to produce. I laughed like crazy reading this. Definitely one of the best Naruto fics I've read recently.

Summary: A series of vignettes taking all the Naruto fic cliches and turning them on their heads.
Why: There are about 15 of these, and they're short, which I usually find to be kind of a downside, but these work beautifully at just this length. They take some of the more prominent cliches in the Naruto fandom, and they basically debunk them by showing what would actually happen. I think my favorites have to do with Iruka, simply because his girlification by some fans drives me up the wall, but there are a lot of good ones here.

Summary: In which Sasuke attempts to discover the way to Naruto's heart.
Why: Sasuke's approach to 'wooing' Naruto is simply priceless, and the ending teleports this from the realm of highly amusing to amazing.

Summary: In which Naruto trips over Sasuke, Sasuke turns various different colors, and there is a lot of arguing over the size of crushes. Now with 40% more insults!
Why: I can so see Naruto and Sasuke being like this: Sasuke won't say it, but you know it's true, and anyway, Naruto says it loud enough for both of them. Kaeda really does a great job of capturing both their personalities. Oh, and there are some great lines in here!

Summary: Apparently the rumour first originated from Sakura, who gossiped to Ino, who told Chouji, who in turn mentioned it to Hinata in an attempt to distract her from the bag of crisps she was eating at the time.
Why: Penelope-Z does some really amazing crack fic. I think I spent the entirety of this fic either snickering to myself or resisting the urge to reach into the computer screen and smack Kiba on the head (possibly while still making noises which vaguely resembled snickers). Just thinking about this story is enough to bring a smile to my face. In fact, I'm so busy smiling that I can't think of anything coherent to say about this, so here, have an excerpt:

“You know, out of all people in our year, you and Shino remind me of Naruto and Sasuke the most.” Shikamaru mused, raising a thoughtful eyebrow.

“Um,” Kiba said eloquently, suddenly sobering up, as he was caught in a vision of an alternative universe where heartthrob Shino, the last-of-the-Aburame avenger, cackled evilly, as his bugs darkened the sky over Konoha, while Kiba, the village idiot, faced him off with a huge spray can of DDT. His brain attempted to make sense of it, exploded in the process, and gently leaked out of his ears.
