Comments:
Ryuushi is an amazing OC. Daughter of a Kirigakure whore, survivor of Bloody Mist and a scarred pre-teen war veteran (and much, much more) she is by far one of the most psychologically complex OCs I’ve ever encountered. She is also, weirdly enough, one of the most principled. Anyone can die for a cause or abhor blatant injustice but relatively few people (or fanfic characters) actually independently try to make the world (and  a better place in the kind of constructive, methodical and even underhanded way Ryuushi does. It’s fascinating to read.

Throughout the fic, but especially early on, Aleycat makes amazing use of the setting of the Naruto world to tell a story. Kiri is not Konoha. That very fundamental fact shapes much of Ryuushi’s actions and opinions well into adulthood.

I just can’t recommend this fic enough – I really can’t.

*Update* – Okay, it’s been a while, I have to say I’m not quite so keen on this fic as I used to be. The beginning is still as great as it always was, but as more and more stuff has gotten piled in I feel as if it’s a bit…directionless. Start it by all means – by perhaps be prepared to jump ship.
