[fic] fragmented dreams  
I come bearing fic!

Title: fragmented dreams
Rating: T
Genre: Romance/Fantasy(ish)
Pairing: NejiTen, of course :)
Summary: AU. She has loved everything about him that hurts. Neji, Tenten, and half a fairytale.

one day you fall for this boy.

PS: Has Neji or Tenten appear in the manga lately? Is it worth catching up to?

*wibbles* This was lovely and haunting. Alas, my fairytale background is lacking -- was this based on one at all, or did you create it yourself?

Neji and Tenten recently appeared in chapter 488. At least this particular chapter is worth reading, in my opinion, because of some EPIC AWESOME TENTEN ACTION. Here, start of relevant pages. If you've been out for awhile, the only thing you really need to know is that Sasuke's gone bonkers and Naruto has decided to Take Sasuke On Himself...and kill him. (Yeah, I know. What, Kishimoto. Just what.) As for what's happening currently in Naruto...um...yeah. Basically I think the most fun part about the manga currently is seeing all of the short cameos of other characters while Naruto does More Training. That's the polite version. :P

Hee, thank you! :)
It isn't exactly based on any specific fairytale, it's more inspired by a lot of those kingdom stories. My fairytale background isn't better than yours, I'm pretty sure.

Thank you for telling me that! I haven't been reading for months already, and at least I have something to look forward to now, if Neji and Tenten recently appeared!

I really really enjoyed reading this. I've always liked canon NejiTen more than AU for a few reasons; one of them being that in most AUs I've read, the characters (particularly Neji) are quite OOC. Not all fics are like that though. Yours is brilliant in that you've cohesively merged Neji and Tenten into a setting very different from Narutoverse. I'm quite used to reading NejiTen fics where they're surrounded by action, danger and some sense of urgency or another, so reading this, where everything is vague, mysterious and filled with so much emotion was quite a treat. Do write more! I'm a fan. :)

PS. I just noticed that the story is divided into 7 sections with a time lapse in between each section. Very interesting formatting, very fitting too seeing that the title of the fic is Fragmented Dreams. I thought the NejiTen interaction in the third section was nicely written, poetic and oh so sexy, by the way.

Thank you! You're really too sweet ♥
I don't think this one is terribly IC, but I'm glad it works for you. I guess I'm tired of reading NejiTen AUs in which characters (particularly Neji, I agree) are OOC, because there are quite a lot of them, especially in FFnet...

I think I agonized over that part for the longest time, so I'm really glad you like it :)
