Fanfiction – Needless Gender Confusion

Needless Gender Confusion by Sarah1281

This is another crackfic oneshot, because I still haven’t had time to take notes on anything longer… specifically, it’s a Naruto oneshot which was probably inspired by the variety of reactions in the Naruto fandom to the “By the way, I’m a boy.” “No way! You’re prettier than Sakura-chan” reveal.

The basic premise behind this 1,334-word fic is that Haku is a girl… pretending to be a boy pretending to be a girl… and Zabuza is as confused by that as you are, except we get to laugh as his frustration mounts in a very Abbot and Costello-esque fashion.

Again, it’s hard to write a long review for such a short fic, but here’s a brief quote to give a taste of the character of the story:

“With long hair, I could pose as a girl!” Haku realized.

“You are a girl,” Zabuza felt the need to remind her.

“That’s certainly an advantage I have, then. Because – no offense – you really couldn’t pull cross-dressing convincingly off,” Haku said honestly.

As crackfic oneshots go, I’m not sure whether I’d give it a 4.5 or a 5 out of 5. I need to re-read more of them to regain my sense of perspective.
