Scattered Puzzle Pieces (Naruto Fanfic)
Rasa and Karura hoped for a third healthy child, but complications occurred resulting in their third child being born prematurely. Frustration grows for Rasa upon realizing his youngest isn't normal either, causing a strain on his marriage with Karura.
Disclaimer - I don't own Naruto. This story is a situational AU, and also an AU where Karura lives.
Note - When I saw that the prompt for this #fanficfriday was #bigchange, I got to thinking about how having a preemie is hard on some fathers, as there is a fear of accidentally hurting the child. I also got to thinking about how having a child with autism is known at times to put a strain on marriages. Gaara also shares certain traits with those on the spectrum, so things ended up clicking together.
Doraemon is also a popular children's Anime over in Japan, plus a childhood favorite for the creator of Naruto.
