I've held myself back from making this post for a year because I had hoped to find this particular fanfic, but I'm ready to admit to defeat. If anyone can tell me which fic this is, I'd be beyond grateful!
- Naruto is the sensei of a genin team (with a Hyuuga male and an Akimichi female, and if I remember correctly then the other male was an Aburame but I could be wrong)
- Sasuke returns to the village and lives with Naruto, but he is still considered dangerous and almost criminal. He is only allowed to live with Naruto because Naruto vouches for him
- Naruto's genin team is sent to deliver a scroll (by Tsunade, if I remember correctly) to Naruto at his house, and encounters Sasuke...unfortunately, the Hyuuga activates his Byagukan, which sets Sasuke off
- Naruto arrives and luckily, disaster is avoided...and I distinctly remember the Akimichi's POV, because she finally understood why her clumsy and silly sensei was considered strong by other shinobi
- The scroll was actually blank
I can remember more details if that would help, but I didn't want to overwhelm the post. Thank you in advance!
Edit: Ironically, despite trying for months and never succeeding, I suddenly discovered on Google which fanfic it is, shortly after posting this request...it is "At the End of All Things" by Silvaren.
