    Title: Seals are Easy, People are Hard
    Author: slythefoxx2
    Rating: M
    Genre: Family/Humor
    Status: WIP
    Fandom: Naruto
    Pairings: None so far, but Naruto/Fem!Haku, Naruto/Hinata and Naruto/Harem are possible
    Words: 65,249
    Summary: Naruto's reaction to his isolation is different from canon. How will Konoha deal with a Seal Master Jinchuuriki with muted affect and a perverted streak a mile wide?

    Naruto is a seals prodigy and has Asperger's (or something like it). Danzo has a change of heart. The story does not earn the "M" rating, IMO, so far. I think it's funny and I like it a lot, after a re-read. It's kinda light like Dreaming of Sunshine, but instead of being asexual the protagonist is a budding "Gentleman Pervert".

    Guess I'm gonna have to read this so Xion isn't the only one keeping this thread bumped. I'll post a review in a bit.

    This story was so bad it killed @Zombie .

    I have a high tolerance for certain kinds of garbage, so I read it all. Bland characters, plot contrivances and blatant wish fulfillment make for a poor story. Naruto is the author's mouthpiece for explaining why every character in canon is a complete idiot.

    Some of the ideas in this story are mildly interesting, but the dull, clinical prose doesn't really work for exploring these ideas. I can almost believe the bland prose is intentional to match the stories emotionally stunted Naruto, but ti doesn't get better when we're seeing other characters' points of view. The pacing is pretty okay. It's probably a bit too fast, but that's the only reason it kept my interest.

    The story is mostly free of purely technical mistakes. 2/5.

    I had the idea to do this epic long review, but yeah, it killed me.

    Its pretty fucking terrible.

    Highlights is Danzo who is tired and wants kids to be kids.

    Naruto doing everything, and I mean everything with seals.

    The casual sexual comments that the author peppers throughout for "humor" I guess, but it really just reads really creepily.

    Naruto not being really all that autistic, just so stunted from being neglected for so long he doesn't understand basic human interaction.

    It has all the makings of a trashbag. The author picked out some semi-popular tropes in the Naruto fandom and then just shit them on the page.

    Its not like the writing itself is bad, just the idea, the execution, and the all around general motivation for why they're writing it.

    Its almost like they're unaware of how real humans are supposed to act...

    O waiiiitttt...

    Maybe its autobiographical?

    Anway, 1/5. Would not read again.

    The real mystery of the universe is why anyone would want to write 102,932 words of self-indulgent wank, when you could just, you know, watch porn and masturbate.
