Team Gai Fic Recs
Team Gai is my fav team in Naruto. I llooooovee them so much; they seem close, especially after watching SD. I used to not really notice TenTen or Team Gai that much, but that changed after I started watching SD. From that, I realized how much Team Gai cares for each other a lot, and they became my fav team (especially with the SD ending 1)! Not to mention Naruto shippuden ending 15 too!!!! :D I LOVE THEIR DYNAMICS!! Here’s some Team Gai fics I like!
Sweet but a little melancholic? Heartwarming and Angsty at the same time? IDK, these fics seem to have a more serious tone compared to the silly ones mentioned later
- Something Like Family Series by slash4femme- Pre-shippuden Team Gai bonding together as told in Neji’s POV. Close to Home is before the chunin exam; Days Before the Fall is right before Sasuke leaves. Features some Kakagai and Team 7 too. Ugh, Gai is such a sweetheart!! I love him. ^^
- Lessons by ChavreJuane- Vignettes of Team Gai growing closer to one another and the lessons they’ve learnt. Man, my babies have grown!
- ‘The Miracle Team’ by grassyhyuuga- Summary is: “Team Gai doesn’t believe in miracles. And that suits them just fine.” I read this fic and was like dayum. For real, I know Team Gai is treated like comic relief most of the time, but this shows how badass they and their dedication could really be. There’s so much potential with them…
- Still Life in Pale Green by forgetme- Okay, so this is a Kakagai fic, BUT there’s some stuff related to Gai, TenTen, Lee, and Neji that really stood out to me, and I’m just reminded of their bond! I rreeallly loved that particular scene.
- your hard work and fervor up to now and the future by forgetme- I like Kakagai a lot. this is a Kakagai fic, but it also has a bit of team Gai in it. I especially love Neji’s conversation with Gai here.
- hair by valcrie- Tenten’s thoughts while Neji dies. Tenten loves her boys in Team Gai so much. :’( This one is prob full on angst, I guess.
Silly, Lighthearted fics that made me laugh
- Celebration by theJammys- omg, this is hilarious and honestly I feel so bad for Neji, Lee, and TenTen. After getting promoted, the three students follow tradition and celebrate by getting a meal together. BUT, what happens is they get food poisoning, crash at Gai’s place, and Gai sensei ends up taking care of them. But, hey, that’s one memorable bonding experience right?
- Sexy Flexing With An Eggplant by theJammys- Another hilarious fic that made me burst out laughing! It’s an AU LeeGaa/GaaLee fic where Lee tries to woo his neighbor, Gaara, at the supermarket. Lee sucks at it, and gets the help of his roommates/ friends: TenTen and Neji! All the interactions are so humorous!!
- Trying Promises by gladdecease- A cute fic where Team Gai goes to Suna for the Chunin Exams! Features some Gaara and Lee moments. imo, the best parts are Lee’s interaction with Gaara, but the whole dynamics with NejiLeeTenten and Gaara is quite funny too.
- The Great Chignon Caper by kanames_harisen- This is a funny Team Gai fic written in the SD style. Of course, that means the involvement of Orochimaru and Kabuto too. LOL.
