Feeling somewhat weird about shitting on another recommendation in a row, but oh well. Dance of the Dog God began well enough, but for some reason just didn't hold my interest too well, so I skipped from chapter 6 to... 19? 20? to see how things look in the future. I'm not sure what's up, but it's like an entirely different fic. The beginning was somewhat rough around the edges but it had the potential to be decent and wasn't canon rehash #3212, but holy shitballs, what the hell happened? Some authors visibly improve over the course of telling a story, here it's the exact opposite. I was literally stunned at the change in quality. Flow got completely fucked by 'funny commentary', author went with the route of 12 year old clan heirs being 'really serious' about paying off 'blood debts' (remember those HP fics with 12 years old Lord Potter in front of Wizengamot and the like? yeah, you'll feel right at home), Team 7 behaving in the first part of the Chuunin Exam like complete lunatics and nobody cares, it just keeps on going. So, fair warning - things get weird here.
