    Title: Quotidian
    Author: firefly
    Rating: M
    Genre: Drama/Suspense
    Chapters: 9
    Words: 75,748
    Status: Complete
    Fandom: Naruto
    Pairings: Hidan/Temari (sort of, not really)
    Summary: When she accepted the graveyard shift of border patrol, Temari expected to find nothing but snakes and scorpions nestled between the dunes of dark sand. Amongst them, the last thing she expected to find was a missing nin out for a midnight prayer.
    Link: FFN

    I've looked around and haven't seen this posted anywhere yet, so I'll go ahead and recommend it.

    This story is about a relationship, but it is not a romance. It's also possibly the best characterization of Hidan I've read so far, and really delves into his personality far beyond the "immortal masochist who curses a lot and really likes killing" surface.

    I'm really not sure how to exactly describe this story, but I know that it's a work of art. The prose is well constructed, the imagery beautifully horrifying, and the characters wonderfully insane. It's enough to keep the reader slightly off balance for the entire ride, and yet begging for more at the end. This is the kind of text that I would have expected to be reading for a creative writing assignment, except this is a fanfiction.

    This likely isn't everybody's cup of tea, but if you like artistically beautiful toxic trainwrecks, you'll probably love this. 5/5 for me.

    It's been so long pinned to the Review Board without any reviews. Is no one reading Naruto any more?

    If it gains no reviews within the next five days, I'll move it into Almost Recommended despite the ratings (obviously it's not worth to be reviewed).


    EDIT: Ok - it got at least a few votes now. Thus -> library

    I've read this ages, and while I can't remember the particulars and specifics of the story, stuff like scenes or lines, I do remember it being excellent and loving it. Then again, all of firefly's stuff is worth reading.

    She writes a lot with Temari and usually does a great job with her, so, yeah, doubt this story is the exception. Giving it a 4 out of 5, simply because there are stories where even after years of not reading them, I still remember scenes and lines vividly and this was unfortunately not one of them.

    No, although it's expected that you give a numerical rating for the story (1 being the lowest, 5 being the highest) after you've read the story, as well as what about the story you liked/didn't like to justify the score.
