"Beyond Clichés: Shikamaru" by SubtleQuirk
Characters: Original Character(s), Other, Reader, Shikamaru, Various, You
Description: It's simple: write a ficlet, one-shot or multi-chaptered work based on Shikamaru that DOES NOT include the following:
[x] mentions of cloud-gazing
[x] having him sleeping and/or falling asleep
[x] involvement of Temari
[x] overexcessive use of his catch phrase (what a drag/troublesome)
[x] having him fall for a brash/obnoxious/tsundere-type personality
Anything is accepted in terms of approaches to the challenge. Fluff, angst, lemons, whatever.
The only other stipulation is please DO NOT submit something yaoi-related. Friendship is fine, but implications of a romantic or sexual relationship with Shikamaru must be heterosexual.
