I have been faithfully checking out the sites with the Naruto WIP I've been following and have been mostly disappointed. One site that hasn't isトマト畑でつかまえて(http://www17.ocn.ne.jp/~tsukino/naru/index.html), which features the modern-day AU with NaruSasu and ItaSasu. The present day timeline has been put aside for extended flashback time! Oh, the past is even better than I'd hoped for. Sasuke is locked up in the house as the treasured "priestess, " which really is some kind of sacrifice. He'd snuck out and met young Naruto and had lots of fun, which ultimately gets him into trouble. But the big problem arises when some kids start disappearing in the area. The Uchiha have to do a sacrifice to appease the gods or whatever. Sasuke is in major lock-down due to his escapes and the fact that he will be "sacrificed." Itachi sneaks into the area of the residence where Sasuke is held, and lo and behold, mean grandpa is molesting Sasuke! This makes Itachi's blood boil, and coupled with the knowledge from the wet-nurse that the "sacrifice" is not for show as he'd been told but something real, this causes him to break. He goes to the grandpa and stabs him. I think numerous times. He then goes to Sasuke to escape with him, but then grandpa shows up again! He's not dead, because HE'S NOT HUMAN. He's some demon or something with a long life sustained by the lives of the missing children. Itachi makes Sasuke run away while he grapples with DEMON GRANDPA. Sasuke runs away, but finds that the servants have all turned into zombies out for his blood. He's cornered, but he's saved at the last moment by his parents. They finally rebel against DEMON GRANDPA and want to help Sasuke escape, but DEMON GRANDPA shows up and cuts them up. In front of Sasuke, of course. Looks like the end of Sasuke as he's choked to death. But just before he blacks out there is a bright flash of light, like THE SUN. When Sasuke wakes up his brother covered in blood is there. His cut up parents' bodies are there. DEMON GRANDPA is not mentioned. But Sasuke has other problems, because his brother then rapes him. Yay! This betrayal is what pushes Sasuke over the edge and makes him seal his memory. The residence is set on fire, presumably by Itachi.
That's as far as the flashback goes. I'd guess the next chapter will be back to the present. In any case, I thoroughly enjoyed the mishmash of cliches. I hope the author keeps writing, and keeps writing with the momentum she has now. The question I really want answered is, what happened to DEMON GRANDPA?
