Summary: Team 10 is given an important mission. More or less.
Why: This is just a nice slice of life from the average day in the life of pre-timeskip Team 10. I like it for the amusingly accurate Shikamaru voice and for the chance to spend a little more time with some of my favorite genin. Not deep, but great for a few moments of entertainment.

Summary: Shikamaru-facilitated Ino/Sakura. That's about it.
Why: I really love the Shikamaru in this, who says so much with so few words.

Summary: Are you actually encouraging me to enter into a bisexual threesome?
Why: I love the way that the author writes the Team 10 relationship in this story. Also, I really liked the Chouji voice and the way the story kind of centers around him because he gets far too little love from fandom. There are a few formatting issues, but the cute moments and lines that made me smile outnumbered them by far.

Summary: In which everyone in Konoha has relationship problems, and Naruto and Ino may just turn out to be the most well-adjusted of them all.
Why: The first thing that drew me to this story was the idea of Naruto and Ino being the most well-adjusted of them all. I have to admit, that intrigued me, even though it's a pairing I never thought I would read with one of the two main characters being someone I'm not too fond of. What kept me reading was that Ronsard really makes this pairing work. Sure, parts of it are silly, but other parts of it are just perfect for both characters. I loved the idea of Ino being the one to corrupt Naruto, and the way that the author never loses sight of the fact that no matter how much Naruto and Ino complain, they are always there when their friends need them. Most of all, I loved how sweet the romance between Ino and Naruto is, and the way that it kind of creeps up on you until you realize, "Yes, that's just exactly right."

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.
