I guess if I can't find enough fanfic for my current obsession (Gintama) featuring the characters I want, I'm going to have to write the stories myself.

It's my own damn fault for loving side and secondary characters so much.

And I still have to keep working on the follow-up to my Naruto fic "Broken" so that will get finished eventually.  I have three "chapters" done already and the rest of the story is in my head, just need to get that translated to text.  *sigh*

Why does it have to be so easy to write these stories in my head and so hard to get them into text so others can read them, too?

Title: Broken
Author: Rhyssa Fireheart
Pairing: None at this time
Fandom: Naruto
Rating: T+
Disclaimer: Don’t own it, never will. Just like to play around with it in my mind.

Originally posted in June over on Fanfiction.net (which is where I archive almost all my stories - gaming related ones aren't there).  I could have sworn I'd posted this here to my journal but I can't find it if I did, lol!  I do have some follow stories in my head, just need to take the time to write them down.

Shinobi don’t fall out of trees. They receive rigorous training in chakra control in order to stick to the sides of objects (such as trees) or run across water or even to move quickly in short bursts, making it seem as if they can disappear. So why was she lying on her back gasping for breath, sprawled in the grass with a large root digging into her back? Not that it mattered, she couldn’t have fallen, obviously, because shinobi aren’t supposed to fall, at least not after they’ve graduated and become genin and chuunin and especially not once they’ve reached the rank of jounin.

Dragging herself to her feet, she tried straightening up, gasping at the line of fiery pain down the left side of her back. Something was wrong back there; something beyond simple bruising caused by a not-fall from the trees, but now wasn’t the time to worry about that. Right now she needed to get moving again, get back up in the trees she hadn’t fallen out of and keep going.

Forcing her body to keep moving, she jumped back up into the branches of the tree. Pausing to rub eyes gritty from dust and lack of sleep, she leapt to the next branch and then another, the uncertainty of her steps fading after several more jumps. There was still a long way to go before she arrived at her destination. Not that it mattered; nothing anyone could do would help the dead.

It's only been just about 13 months, so let's call this an annual update, why don't we?

First up is a manga page coloring of Haine and Naoto from the manga Dogs: Bullets & Carnage.  It's from an earlier chapter but I'm not sure what page exactly.  This was originally done for the manga coloring contest over on the One Manga Forums.

Teaser:  Haine and Naoto from Dogs: Bullets & Carnage

Next up is a fanart piece for another contest on the One Manga Forums, this time for digital art.  I messed up though and missed the due date for entering, so instead I used the extra time to actually do a decent background for once.  Character is Ino Yamanaka from Naruto.

Teaser: Ino Yamanaka - Naruto

Both teasers link to the full-size images on DeviantArt.

So I did a straight out fanart piece recently - Sakura Haruno from Naruto.  I had an awesome reference photo that I worked from and did the entire piece in about 5-6 hours.  Not entirely happy with how the hair turned out, but I'll live.

So after watching Shippuden episode 34 and seeing my beloved Yamato finally animated and given a voice *swoon* I felt compelled to do something I normally don't - create icons.

I present to you 10 different icons with 49 variations. All can be used as bases (since adding text isn't my strong point) and I'd appreciate credit, but it's not a biggie. I'd like to see what others do if you use any as a base though. *smile*

So I was reading the latest chapters of a fanfic called Duplicity over on FF.net by BeautifulSilverSilence (She's [profile] beautyissilver here on LJ).  In chapter 5, she describes the team (Kakashi, Genma, Raido, Asuma) needing to go undercover for part of their mission, and Genma ends up having to wear a kimono.  I loved the idea and felt compelled to draw it, so now I present to you:

Genma in a Kimono!

Well, I finished another (older) cover from the Naruto manga, this time chapter 158 featuring Shodai Hokage.  I think it turned out rather well actually and looking back at my first cover piece (the Kankuro one) I can see how much my technique has improved.  That's a good thing I guess.  So anyways, here's the final piece (teaser):

I decided to color one of the panels from chapter 296, page 10 showing Sakura after she was injured by Naruto in his four-tailed Kyuubi form.  I planned to use the image for an avatar, but wanted it colored first.  Once I got started, I felt coloring the whole panel instead of just parts was the way to go.  I also ended up leaving the lineart as part of the image but reduced the opacity some so that it wasn't too harsh appearing.  I'm not too sure I like how her hair turned out, but that's why they call this practice.
