Hands down my most popular work is my multi-chapter canon alternative found family fic Family is Worth Fighting For. I was listening to Ed Sheeran’s Perfect one day and the barefoot on the grass lyrics stuck in my brain. In no time the fic was born lol.
Although I’m proud of that story and so pleased at its popularity, it isn’t the one that is dearest to my heart, however. That one is Catch a Falling Star. It follows ballet dancer Kakashi who after suffering a bad relationship and surviving meets Latin dancer Iruka who helps him learn what love really looks like-the kind that strengthens you instead of tearing you down. It’s a real labor of love.


My most popular KakaIru story is one of my earliest ones: ANBU Bedtime Stories. I don’t know exactly what it is about that one that makes it so, but I’m glad they enjoy it!
My favourite, though, is This Is Not A Romcom. It’s just 100 words, but it makes me giggle every time I reread or recall it!

Tenzō is not sympathetic to Kakashi’s plight.


My most popular is definitely The Home of Hatake. It’s my most recently completed KKIR fic (even though it’s already 2 years old ahh!) and the longest one I’ve posted. That fic was such a joy to write, I wanted Kakashi and Iruka to have Sakumo in their lives. He was really fun to write, especially interacting with Naruto. :slight_smile:

My other most popular based on hits alone is Hot Lead, Tempered Steel, which started as a play script project for school many years ago! I had two more parts to an expanded universe planned out, but I never got around to them. I still have those outlines, maybe I’ll get the gumption to finish them some day.
