    Title: Tales From The Blue Sea
    Author: Tarhish
    Genre: Action/Adventure
    Status: WIP, over 200K words
    Fandom: Naruto/One Piece crossover
    Pairings: Minor Naruto/Hinata
    Link: Chapter One

    Author summary: Nearly nine hundred years after the end of the Void Century, Gold Roger discovers the Elemental Kingdoms. In his search for the True History he encounters a very ancient Uchiha Madara and a very young Uchiha Itachi, changing the fate of the Uchiha Clan forever. Now, Madara's only remaining servant, Tobi, must make the best of his imperfect understanding of his master's plan as he begins preparations to take the entire world by storm.

    Eventually, as fate would have it, Itachi holds the future of the Uchiha in his hands, and his youthful dreams of the ocean lead him to made a very different choice than he might otherwise have made. As a result, Sasuke and Naruto grow up with a different life.

    Years later, strange ships start arriving at the fishing ports east of Konoha, and Naruto and Sasuke are sent to investigate.


    My Summary: So, while this is not the best thing since sliced bread, it is the only Naruto crossover I have read without cringing. I'm not a fan of crossovers in general, but this fusion was done well enough, and it isn't immersion breaking. There is no bashing, explicit or implicit, which is quite rare in crossovers.

    The story switches between perspectives a fair amount. Luffy and Naruto get a good amount of screen time, but Sasuke and Tobi are the most interesting characters (Sasuke is the main character, although the author doesn't explicitly say that).

    Parts 1 and 3 have a good pace, but part 2 drags a bit. It follows canon One Piece a bit too close. Overall, it's a good time waster. 4/5.

    You got their name wrong, but I enjoy this story. It has very few readers and comments but the author keeps trucking.

    The best part about this story is that it's actually planned out in advance and is nearing completion.

    I did. My bad. Could a mod fix the thread title? I don't think I can.

    This is one of few Naruto crossovers that don't make me want to claw my eyes out, and in fact really enjoy reading.
