Title: Road to Heaven Author: Crimson sun06 Rating: M Genre: Adventure/Mystery Status:WIP Fandom:Naruto Words: 87,127 Pairings: none Summary: For generations Team 7 has produced some of the greatest shinobis of their age. Their feats of legend while earning them the love and admiration of their peers also brought with it the hatred of their enemies. It has been said after all, that the curses of the fallen can bring the very angels crashing to the earth. Is that the fate that awaits them? Or can they pave a better road? Link: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10833833/1/Road-to-Heaven-formerly-Fallen-Angels When I started this story it was to explore what would happen if Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura were sorted into different teams after their graduation and how it would affect their growth as shinobi? And this was the end result. An AU fic where Team 7 is formed not after graduation but during the Shippudden. Though the differences are more than skin-deep. These are the same characters(for the most part) who have made different choices and undergone different experiences than they did in canon. So in place of 12 year old rookies you have a team of fairly experienced and competent shinobi who have a more or less developed skill-set and have undergone some major character development before the start of the story. There are a few OCs running around whose presence will make sense eventually. I've tried to give special emphasis on the character development in the story which means that there are no insta-friendship and bonds of brotherhood between the members... yet, and my plans involve them undergoing a lot of changes both in the way they view the world and how they view each other. Just finished writing the first mission and thought now was a good time to take a shot at the library. PS I have put this on wba and the link is my sig, even though I have changed the title. The ff.net version is the edited version... for the most part anyway.
