Extra! Extra! For those who ignore author notes & end notes (hey, I know I do), today’s update is the penultimate chapter of News Hound. The fanfic will be complete in 20, so if you’ve been putting off reading the story until it’s done, your wait’s nearly at an end. Although … as it says in the oh-so ignorable end note to Ch19, Iruka’s story isn’t really finished. His ongoing mission will be going on. I’ve already begun writing what comes next in the hopes it’ll be complete before my fanniversary in September. You heard it here first! Look forward to Cub Reporter.

It occurs to me that some of you may not be as much of a geek about Naruto as I am. And that you might appreciate a visual reminder of some of the other characters in this story. I’ll sneak that in under a cut so it doesn’t spoiler readers who are waiting for this fanfic to be complete before starting.

**Author’s Note from Ch2** For those who maybe didn’t make it all the way to Episode 469 of Naruto Shipuuden, you’re missing a vital piece of information. Sukea is an alter ego that Kakashi uses when information gathering. To the delight of screencappers everywhere, he reprises the role in Boruto, so there are plenty of opportunities to (finally) get a gander at the Copy Ninja’s bare face.

New Story. New Fandom. I’ve always sort of wanted to write for the Naruto fandom. (Iruka is my all-time favorite ninja. So there.) Early this year, I started messing with News Hound on the side. Just a scene here or there, in between all the other things I was supposed to be doing. (I like having an escape!story for days when I’m feeling rebellious.) Lo, and behold, the thing behaved so well, it’s essentially complete. TWO chapters to give you a running start. New chapters will post every Tuesday.

Summary: Iruka is sent undercover on a mission that bears every resemblance to an enforced vacation. It’s the world’s most boring assignment. And the loneliest. Until a chatty photojournalist named Sukea starts hanging around. Canon Divergence. [Iruka & Kakashi/Sukea/Hound]
