- It must be at least fifteen hundred words.

- It may be canon-compliant, AU, slash, OOC or any other kind of story, so long as it fits the other criteria.
At a Ramen Stand by StarsOfYaoi
One-Shot – 5,228
Summary: In a ramen shop, one of the many in the Elemental Countries, a ninja shares his past with the owner, until the one he is waiting for will come. Or not.
Comment: This is one of my favourite Naruto stories and it is emotional and heartbreaking. I especially like how the author finishes the story. It is left up to us, as the reader, to decide whether Naruto was met by his precious person, or Konaha’s hunter-nin. I have read this story several times and whether it has a happy ending or a tragic one usually depends on my mood that day.
Sacrifice by Daydreamer79
One-Shot – 6,085 Words
Summary: As Hokage, Naruto has to make a decision that could mean the death of the person he loves the most.
Comment: An emotional and entertaining story.
