Title: Burn Limits Author: Taivasalla Rating: T Genre: General (I think?) Status: WIP Fandom: Naruto Pairings: None listed, doesn't seem that there will be any, or if there are, that they will become a main focus. Summary: Sakura grows up in a shinobi household. Haunted by a broken father, she ends up on Team 7 a different person. Link: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7980726/1/Burn-Limits The fic is currently 5 chapters in, three of which were added in the past month. The story was originally put out in 2012, but the author's returned to it recently. The story is Sakura-centric (lol, Republic) but I've still found it quite interesting. The premise is that her mother dies in the Kyuubi attack (I'm pretty sure that's how, at least) and that leads her to grow up with more exposure to the shinobi lifestyle. She's more emotionally fragile, but also more competent. That's not to say that she's an angsty character throughout, but that she's more 3-dimensional and OC from the Sakura of the anime/manga. It remains to be seen where the plot is headed - so far, we've bypassed the Wave arc, and are back in Konoha. Hopefully, the author has an overarching plan for the story, though it seems that it's been planned ahead to past the Chuunin exams by the most recent AN. Nonetheless, from what we've seen it looks to be more of a character driven piece than plot but can't be sure with what we've been given as of yet. At first I was hesitant to post this as it's yet to come into its own, plot wise, but I found it interesting enough. The update rate has been great so far (~1 chapter/week) but that should be expected to fall a bit now that the prewritten chapters are through.
