I stumbled upon Fallen Leaves recently (which made my life better!) and wandered over here after I'd read through it.
I'll admit I was wary at first, since the premise and backstory were so different...but that went away completely about four lines into "Don't Fear the Dark." I was absolutely floored by the level of writing and world-building in these new stories! I shouldn't have been surprised, really :)
I'm loving the new interactions and the amazing characterization. I can't wait to see more Team Six banter. They're hysterical together! I'll miss Raidou's little brothers, but I think seeing him in a leadership role will be interesting, while playing off the "big brother" role he seems to fill so well. It was also fun (and very different) to see Kakashi take up that role with Naruto. I'm excited to see how the new team situation effects Genma and Raidou's relationship, and what comes out of Ryouma and Katsuko's "unholy alliance"...
Anyway, sorry that was a bit long and rambling...I really just wanted to say I love what I've read so far, and can't wait to see what you come up with next!
We love long and rambling. We will listen to people ramble at us all day. <3
Man, I can't even imagine reading through Leaves in one go. I think there's something like three million words over there. I'm impressed by your tenacity! And super pleased you followed us over to Legacy, despite wariness. We love hearing when we win people over. :D
(Because I'm curious, how did you find Leaves?)
Don't Fear The Dark was one of mine. I AM DELIGHT that you enjoyed it. World-building is one of our very favorite things to do, especially because the canon world of Naruto leaves a lot of space to place with history and culture. It's really cool to hear when people enjoy it.
There will be more Team Six coming up soon! We actually have a big first mission for them that's nearly completed. Lots of banter and action and badassery.
I do kind of miss Raidou's brothers, I admit. They were a lot of fun. But I'm really enjoying writing the broship between Raidou and Katsuko, and allll the general headaches that Team Six will bring him. (There are many to come, I'm sure. XD)
Thank you so much for your review!

Three million words? Wow! Yeah, I found it back in June and couldn't stop reading...which is funny, I guess, because I'm actually brand new to the Naruto fandom. My sister only just convinced me to watch the anime this summer.
How did I find it? Good question. Uhm. I believe it was via the fic "Childhood" by Taivasalla on ff.net. I liked it enough that I not only read through the rest of their fics, but checked out their favorite authors list, as well. Kilerkki and Nezuko are listed, and both linked to Leaves in their bios. Kind of a convoluted explanation...
Haha, I can't get the image of little!Kakashi out of my head, insisting that the mask is "evil!" It popped into my head at work today, and made me laugh (Out loud. At my desk. My coworkers already know I'm crazy, though :D) I'll keep an eye out for Team Six's first mission! I'm sure it'll be awesome, in more ways than one!
I agree that the Katsuko-Raidou broship seems like it will be worth the trade off. Reading those two together just makes it impossible not to laugh! Poor Raidou...I hope Genma has lots of painkillers on hand for those headaches ;)
