I guess I'll start. Here's my ShikaTema oneshot.

Shippuuden time period. Temari is unable to act as liaison for Suna in the chunin exams due to the flu. Tsunade sends Shikamaru to get her paperwork. He gets a little more then paperwork. ShikaTema

“I had that dream again,” said Shikamaru. He and Choji were lying in his favorite spot to cloud watch. The grass was soft and a healthy dark green. Shikamaru ran his hand across the grass and turned his head toward Choji.

“What dream?” asked Choji with his eyes shut.

“You know the Nara curse dream as I’ve come to call it.”

Choji chuckled, “Oh, the bossy women dream?”


Shikamaru sat up and fingered a lone daisy.

“This time it was a little different.”

Choji opened one eye, “How so?”

“Well, usually everywhere I turn there’s a bossy women in my life. Tsunade-sama, Ino, my mother…..and they are all talking at once…or better yet whining. You know…do this do that.”

“Okay, what was different about this particular dream?”

“There is only one woman, and she has this…..I dunno….sweet voice.”

Choji sat up and laughed, “A sweet bossy voice?”

Shikamaru folded his arms and sighed. Choji stopped and crossed his legs to sit Indian style.

“I’m sorry….go on….a sweet voice.”

“She’s talking to me, but I only see an outline of her body. There’s too much light behind her.”

“What is she saying?”

“At first she sounded like the usual nag, but when I listened closer, she was encouraging me. All I could make out is… can do so much more.”

Choji rubbed his chin, “What did you say?”

Shikamaru stared in the distance, “Nothing. I just kept straining to see who she was. She reached out her hand and then…… pain in the neck father woke me up by pounding on my door. I may not live at home, but that don’t stop him from pestering me.”

“Ugh,” said Choji.

“Tell me about it.”

“Do you think it’s someone you know?”

“There’s something familiar about her.”

“Shikamaru!!” called out a voice.

Both turned their heads and saw Ino heading their way.

Shikamaru smirked, “I tell you one thing, it certainly was not her.”

Ino heard the two laugh and put her hands on her hips as she approached.

“What’s so funny?”

“Nothing. What’s up?” said Shikamaru

“Tsunade-sama wants to see you.”


Shikamaru dusted his hands and got up. Choji chuckled.

“I’ll see you later.”

“Yeah yeah.”

Knock…. Knock

“Enter,” said Tsunade without lifting her head. Shikamaru entered and stood before her desk.

“You wanted to see me Lady Hokage?”

Tsunade raised her head, “Yes. As you know the chunin exams are soon. Usually Temari comes here acting as liaison, but I’ve received word that she is sick. I need you to go to Suna and gather the important papers we need.”

Shikamaru rubbed the back of his head and huffed, “What’s wrong with her?”

Tsunade tilted her chair back and interlaced her fingers.

“Poor thing has the flu bad. I’d like you to leave today if possible.”

“The flu? I don’t want to catch it.”

“I’m sorry, but it’s the only way. It’s too much for a hawk to carry.”

Shikamaru frowned, “I’ll leave right away.”

“Thank you.”

3 days later

Temari paced in front of Gaara’s desk. Between sneezes she spoke.

“I can still go…”

“Go back to bed. I’ve got it covered.”

Temari paused, “What do you mean?”

“Shikamaru-san is coming to pick up your paperwork.”

“Cry baby? When should he be here?”

“Sometime today.”

Temari ran her fingers through her hair and looked down at the pajama’s she was wearing.

In a daze she smoothed out her shirt.

“I better get in the shower then…huh.”

Gaara watched her leave and shook his head.

“I’ll never understand her.”

Shikamaru adjusted his backpack and entered the Kazakage Tower. A few villagers nodded their heads knowing him well.

Gaara’s door was open so he knocked on the door frame.

“Knock knock.”

Gaara stood up from his desk and waived for him to come in.

“Close the door behind you please.”

Shikamaru did as he was told and walked up to Gaara. He bowed respectfully.


“Please call me Gaara.”

Shikamaru raised an eyebrow.


Gaara opened one of the drawers on his desk.

“Temari has the rest, but here is the list of genin that will be participating in the exams.”

Shikamaru took the scroll, “Thank you.”

“I’ll take you to Temari’s room.”

Temari stared into her foggy bathroom mirror. She took a hand towel and wiped away the condensation.

“Why am I nervous about Shikamaru coming?”

She scoffed at herself and chuckled, “Must be the fever.”

She put on her regular black kimono and sat at her desk.

She turned when she heard a knock on the door.

“It’s me Temari,” said Gaara.

“Come in.”

Shikamaru followed Gaara silently.

“I gave him the list of genin. You have the rest.”

That said Gaara left and closed the door behind him. Shikamaru broke the silence that engulfed the room.

“So….how are you feeling?”

She turned and pulled out some more scrolls.

“Nothing I can’t tough out.”

Shikamaru walked up to her and examined her face.

“Glassy eyes, pale and…..”

He touched her forehead with the back of his hand.


Temari narrowed her eyes and slapped his hand away.

“Don’t touch me cry baby.”

Shikamaru sucked his teeth at her insult.

“Just give me the rest of the crap so I can go.”

Temari sneezed into a tissue and put her hands on her hips.

“Where’s the fire? Besides, not all of it is done.”

“Not done?”

Temari huffed, “This is the first day in a week I’ve been out of bed.”

Shikamaru’s face softened. He looked over her shoulder.

“I can fill out that stuff…..I do it for Konoha. You really should be in bed.”

Temari coughed and got up.

“I guess your right. Here, you can start this while I change back into my pajamas.”

Shikamaru began to fill out the empty sections of the scrolls. Temari changed into a white tank with dark purple capri sweats. When Shikamaru turned around he could only see Temari’s silhouette since the sun filtered into the widow directly behind her.

Images of his dream returned in a flash. He shook it off and returned to his work. Then she spoke.

“Shikamaru, why aren’t you a jonin yet? You can do so much more if you put your mind to it.”

He stiffened and thought to himself, ‘That voice…’s Temari. Calm down…it’s just a coincidence.”

Temari sat on the bed next to the desk.

“Did you hear me?”

“Uh….yeah. The answer is I got enough work already.”

“You’re so lazy.”

Shikamaru smirked, “So I’ve been told. Now YOU get into bed.”

Temari smiled and climbed under her blankets. She let out a sigh and watched him write.

“So….how long will you really be here?”

“I guess till this paperwork is done. I can’t give Tsunade-sama incomplete forms.”

Temari sat up and took a scroll.

“Lemme help you.”

Shikamaru raised an eyebrow.

“Trying to get rid of me?”

Temari nervously fingered the scroll and stammered a little.

“I didn’t say that. I um…want you to stay…well…”

Shikamaru smirked and resumed working. Temari furrowed her brow.


“I didn’t say anything.”

“What are you thinking?!”

Temari got annoyed and climbed out of bed.

“I’m going to make some tea.”

Shikamaru got up and held onto her arm.

“I’ll make the tea. Stay in bed.”

Temari’s heart fluttered by his touch. Fighting it she snatched her arm back.

“No….I need to get up.”

“Tch...stop being so troublesome.”


Temari spun on her heels and left the room. Slowly Shikamaru sat back down in the chair thinking about his dream.

‘My dream was about Temari…the most troublesome woman of all. Figures…….and yet, she’s beautiful at the same time.’

Not long after, Temari returned with two cups of tea. She paused when she saw him staring in the distance.

“Earth to Shikamaru.”

He quickly snapped out of it.

“What? Oh…sorry.”

Temari handed him the tea.

“What were you thinking about?”

He fought the burning blush as hard as he could. Temari smiled and sat on the bed facing him.

“You’re blushing.”

“If you must know, I had a dream with you in it.”

It was Temari’s turn to blush.

Shikamaru waived his hands, “No no no. Not that kind of dream….sheesh.”

She felt her heart flutter again.

“Um…what was it about?”

Shikamaru took a sip of tea.

“You were encouraging me to do more. Kinda like when you asked me about being a jonin before.”

Once again silence filled the room. Shikamaru reached over and took the scroll out of her hands gently.

“I got this. Just relax.”

Temari stared at her empty lap.


She lifted her head, “Huh?”

“Relax. I’ll ask you questions if I need too.”

Temari relaxed and got comfortable under the blankets. Not long after she fell asleep.

Shikamaru put his pen down and yawned.

“What a pain that was.”

He looked at Temari who was sleeping soundly. Some of her silken blonde hair covered her face. Shikamaru reached over gently and moved her bangs out of her face. Smiling, he got up and gathered the scrolls.

“Get better,” he whispered and left.

An hour passed…..

Temari’s eyes fluttered open. She sat up fast when she saw Shikamaru and all the scrolls gone.

“He left without saying goodbye?”

She jumped out of bed, changed and ran out the door. Gaara was walking down the hallway. She nearly glomped him.

“Gaara…..where’s Shikamaru?”

“He left some time ago….”

Temari didn’t let him finish. She sucked her teeth and ran out of the Kazakage tower. She looked back and forth. The village was bustling with venders and patrons.

‘No sign of him,’ she thought to herself.

Disappointed, she turned to head back inside when she heard Kankuro’s voice. She turned back around and followed the voice. It led her to a dumpling shop. Both he and Shikamaru were sitting on two barstools, backs facing her.

Grumbling to herself, she stormed up between them.

“What’s the big idea?!”

Both men turned to her. She glared hard at Shikamaru.

“What are you talking about?” asked Kankuro

Her gaze never left the Konoha shinobi.

“I’m not talking to you Kankuro.”

Kankuro raised both eyebrows.

“Well, it’s been nice knowing you Shikamaru.”

Kankuro picked up his puppets that were near his seat and started to leave. Shikamaru reached out his hand.


Kankuro waived and kept walking. He turned back towards Temari.

“Did I forget something?”


She sat down hard in the now empty seat that Kankuro was in. Frustrated she huffed a few times looking for the right words.

“Ya know….I thought we were…..we’re friends, right?”

Shikamaru wrinkled his brow in confusion.


“So…friends say goodbye before leaving don’t they?”

Shikamaru glanced at the ground. If she had any idea how bad he wanted to wake her. He looked into her eyes.

“You were sleeping and you are sick. I didn’t want to disturb you.”

Temari’s posture relaxed. She stared at Kankuro’s empty water glass.

“I wouldn’t have cared.”

Shikamaru chuckled, “I think it’s time for your meds again. You would have killed me.”

His chuckle slowed to a stop when he saw her reaction. Her eyes lowered to the ground.

He cleared his throat, now getting nervous.

“What’s wrong Temari?”

She got up from the seat and shook her head, “Nothing….forget it.”

Shikamaru watched her leave for a second, then got up. He paid the bill and followed her to a secluded road. As she walked, she fought tears of frustration.

‘What the hell is wrong with me?!’

She felt her body freeze.

“What the…”

Shikamaru had his hands together for his Shadow Paralysis Jutsu.

“Don’t you want me to say goodbye?”

He let her go and walked up to her. Her face was pink with a blush and her heart began to beat faster.

Jokingly he stuck out his hand, “Bye.”

As soon as Temari’s hand touched his, she closed the gap between them with a soft kiss. Shikamaru smirked and returned the kiss. Feeling his smile she broke the kiss, but stayed close to him.

“You’re smiling pretty hard there cry baby.”

He wrapped his arms around her waist and sighed, “I’m just thinking how nice it will be to have someone take care of me when I get what you have.”

Temari’s eyes widened, “Oops.”

Shikamaru took his pack off and pulled out a scroll and handed it to her.

“I think I forgot this and need you to bring it to Konoha as soon as possible.”

She smirked, “I’ll give you a 24 hour head start.”

When an ugly, green elf was unleash from a void, thanks to the death of King Kai, it unleashes a gruesome black mist that engulfs the living worlds! During a prime time of training, Kakashi and Iruma are giving a long lecture to Naruto and Sasuke's lack of teamwork. Suddenly, Kakashi and Iruma stops talking and looks eerily down on the ground.

Sasuke: Naruto-*beep* They're evil.


*Kakashi and Iruma dashes for an attack dealing much damage to Naruto*

Sasuke: *up in a tree* Too bad for you're my bait!

*Kakashi and Iruma continuously gang-up and stomp on Naruto as Naruto guards himself like a turtle*

Naruto: EhhEYY!!! This is SOOooOO farfetched!

Sasuke: Mokun-no-Snake-Oil-Nine-Tail Boken Fire of the Toilet Seal Art! *A huge potable water and massive fire engulfs Kakashi, Iruma, and Naruto as it sends them off frying in Sasuke's ultimate Hellfire art* *laughs out menacingly*

*Sasuke hears a *poof* and the real Naruto appears from Sasuke's feet since Naruto had been posing as Sasuke's shoes since*

Sasuke: When did he...*Sasuke reflects back when Naruto, Sakura, and Sei walked into a dojo where he took of his shoes; upon the training, at the time, Naruto didn't show up thereafter.* Bastard...

*However, Naruto smiles and "Naruto" *poofs* as he is actually a toll of paper bombs*

Sasuke: ... Are you serious?

*Sasuke ends up in the Tower of Kirin and easily defeats the ugly, green bug with his new move*

*No...not the Chidori!! He didn't learn it yet!*

Sasuke & Naruto: Big Bros. Kamehameha!!

*Suddenly, the screen goes black and the someone is screaming and the lights turn back on into a studio*

Beven Spillberg: WHAT WAS THAT?!! I thought you've read the script!! How the heck is any of this the Avatar: The Last Airbender?!!

*Walks away in disgust as the whole casts picks up their scripts to reread the documents*

Kakashi: Don't worry Naruto. At least this D-rank mission is entertaining.

Sakura: I want to be Bulma! Right Sasuke-kun...I mean Vegeta?

Sasuke: *walks out*

Sakura: I'll get you someday!!! *Sakura says to herself*

Naruto: Ah!! DARN IT!! I wish I could do the Kamehameha furreallzz!! Kakashi-sensei!! Can you teach me?!!

Kakashi: *sighs* *reads his book*
