Silver Queen is well-known fanfiction author in the Naruto fandom. She's from New Zealand and joined in 2002. In 2011, she started writing Dreaming of Sunshine, her longest work to date. She's also written fic for Yu-Gi-Oh, InuYasha, Harry Potter, Spirited Away, Batman, Buffy, Star Wars, Alex Rider, Infinite Undiscovery, Sky High, Star Ocean. Before late 2011, most of her works were one shots. Her sister often beta reads for her.[1][2]

Notable works

Silver Queen's noteable fanworks are all tied to Dreaming of Sunshine. In addition to writing, she also has often drawn Shikako, scenes from Dreaming of Sunshine, and related characters, as well as vidding Naruto and a variety of other anime together to create AMVs that explore what Naruto might look like if Shikako, the main character of Dreaming of Sunshine, were actually present.

Her art has had a definite effect on the fanart produced by the Dreaming of Sunshine fandom, especially when she draws and posts things that haven't occurred in the fic yet, such as Shikako getting sage mode.

"Progression" by Silver Queen




  • Dreaming of Sunshine - Team Seven (link) — 09 Sept 2014 — Uses Offspring's "You're Gonna Go Far, Kid" and focuses a lot on the fight with Orochimaru in the Forest of Death as well as Shikako's fight with the Sound genin.
  • Dreaming of Sunshine - Nara Twins (link) — 14 Sept 2014 — Uses Aviicii's "Hey Brother" and explores Shikako and Shikamaru's relationship, especially during and after the Stones of Gelel arc.
  • Dreaming of Sunshine - Shikako Nara (link) — 08 Jan 2015 — Uses The Cab's "Angel With A Shotgun" and various Naruto and non-Naruto anime clips to give the illusion of Shikako actually being in the anime.

Blanket policy and recursive fandom

Silver Queen encourages and enjoys recursive fanfiction and other fanworks of her work. On her profile, she has the following blanket statement:

NEW: Regarding DOS Fanfiction:

A few people have asked for clarification on this issue, so here it is.

  • Yes, I am fine with people writing things in 'DOS-verse'.
  • You don't have to ask for permission first.
  • Please let me know so I can read it and archive in the Heliocentricism community.
  • Have fun.[3]

Silver Queen maintains a community of recursive works on at the Heliocentrism community, and a sister collection exists on AO3.

Fan comments

You've got a wonderful way of making me care about characters I don't care about. [4]
