Good thing we agreed on our appearance and what are we going to focus on in nearby future
You quickly move to calm Tazuna."No need to get angry, Sensei and my team are all here." you tell him. "A worker or two may leave, but we will stay here and protect you until the bridge is done."Tazuna's fist unclenches. "That's right. You've all proven you can do it.""Giichi." Tazuna addresses him calmly. "This bridge is the only hope of our nation. It's getting built even if I have to do it alone."Tazuna turns to leave. "Let's break for lunch."Later on in the evening, you and Tazuna are going around the market. Or rather, what passes for a market there. There are almost no wares in any of the stores, and the impoverished citizens line the streets. More than once, you have to deter pickpockets from trying to filch your bag.In one instance you expect a thief, but are greeted by a child. He's filthy and and his clothes are old and worn, but he smiles as he holds out his hands towards you.>A.Give him some ryo>B.Give him some food>C.Give him nothing
>>42198619>A.Give him some ryoI think we'd be more likely to have some money on us than any rations, we probably left that back at the house with the rest of the supplies. We'd only have a protein bar or something similar.
>>42198619>B.Give him some foodFood will be waaay to expensive here.
>>42198619>Dkidnap him and make him join our village
>>42198619>B.Give him some food
>>42198619>Give him a kunaiHe will be our new apprentice!
>>42198619>>B.Give him some food
>>42198675>>42198732>>42198739>>42198770https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_7a0bexfmI&index=8&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85You hand the kid some snacks you had in your bag. His eyes light up and he thanks you as he runs off.Tazuna comes up next to you. "That's what we're reduced to these days. The children have to beg for scraps because their parents have no work. And no one has the courage to stand up to Gato. That's what we're building here, not a bridge. We're giving this country courage."Later at Tazuna's home, your team and his family are sitting at the table eating dinner. Sasuke and Kiba look pretty beaten from training, but they are still managing to shovel an impressive amount of food into their mouths.From your seat, you notice a family photo with Tazuna, Tsunami, and Inari in it. It looks like there was someone else as well, but the top-right corner of the photo was conspicuously torn out.>A.Ask about the photo>B.Ask Sasuke and Kiba how their training is going>C.Ask something else>D.Stay silent
>>42198915>A.Ask about the photo>B.Ask Sasuke and Kiba how their training is going
>>42198915>B.Ask Sasuke and Kiba how their training is going>C.Ask something else>How can I improve my chakra control more?
>>42198915>B.Ask Sasuke and Kiba how their training is going
>>42198915>A.Ask about the photoAll in favor of lobbing a harpoon at Gato?
>>42198915>C.Ask something elseits time for traps!
>>42198915FUCK YEAH, KONQUEST>C. "Where IS Gato based out of, in this nation?"
>>42198915>B.Ask Sasuke and Kiba how their training is going>C.Ask something else"So where should my training go from here, sensei?"Don't ask about the photo, it's pretty obvious even IC what the story is with that.
>>42199005That's what we are doing tonight anywayWe don't need to rehash canon anymore or get infodumbs that were in series
>>42199025It's not really obvious but general context is
>>42198940>>42198951>>42198966>>42198979Sorry if it feels like railroading guys, but the exposition has to happen one way or another. I'm trying to keep it condensed though.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhTLFoQMwA0&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=43You inquire About Sasuke and Kiba's training."Sasuke is doing pretty good now, he's almost up to where you got." Kiba explains between bites. "But I'm catching up! He's not gonna beat me!"After his boast, Kiba catches Inari looking at the torn photo. "Hey, what's with that picture? Was there somebody else in it?" he asks bluntly."That's Inari's father." Tazuna says. "They called him a hero here once."Inari gets up from the table, clearly distressed. His mother chases after him.Kakashi inquires further, and Tazuna tells you all the story.He tells of how the man, Kaiza, met Inari and became his father figure. About how he saved the village in its time of need, and about how he was made an example of when he was the only one to stand up to Gato.The story leaves the room in a solemn atmosphere."Well then..." Kiba stands up. "We'll just have to show Inari how to stand up for himself! Let's get back to training.The next day comes.>A.Go with Tazuna again>B.Make Sasuke go, you want to train more>C.Make Kiba go, you want to train more
>>42199274>A.Go with Tazuna again
>>42199274>but the exposition has to happen one way or anotherNot at allWe don't really need this to kill GatoOr for anything reallyYou should stop trying to stick so close to canon
>>42199274>A.Tell Sasuke to get good. You want to get some training in by lunch.
>>42199274I think you missed part where we go and kill Gato at night man>A.Go with Tazuna again>Train chakra control while here
>>42199274>A.Go with Tazuna againWe'll swap out once one of them gets to the top, too. Only fair.
>>42199340>>42199368I hope you guys all realize that killing Gato was never a part of the mission, and Zabuza got away with it because he was both a rouge nin and died
>>42199368>I think you missed part where we go and kill Gato at night manIt was explained last thread why that was a terrible idea.
>>42199274>>42199381Sounds about right.
>>42199274>A.Go with Tazuna againGet a big tub full of water and stand on the surface, so we can still get some practice in.
>>42199407I don't remember that part>>42199404Nor is it our mission to trainBut it makes it easier
We could practice by setting up razorwire traps while upside down on the bridge.
>>42199469Yes, but training won't get us severely disciplined for assasinating someone without orders. That's the sort of thing that gets you declared a missing-nin, at best. There are sort of rules about not just killing people because we don't like them, it kind of prevents us from getting into wars all the time.
>>42199469No it complicates hte mission even more and endsa up with the possibility of us becoming a missing nin.
>>42199274>A.Go with Tazuna againAnd we should do the water bucket plan.
>>42199519>>42199525I am not saying we should just go and kill himWe would obviously ask Kakashi first and if he says no then we won't
>>42199314>>42199331>>42199358>>42199368>>42199381>>42199457You decide to let Kiba and Sasuke both get more training in while you keep an eye on Tazuna.Over the next few days, you come up with a few ways to get some training of your own in while you do your job.You practice walking on the underside of the bridge until you can do it automatically. You get in plenty of your usual weapons drills. You also try getting a tub of water and standing on the surface of that, but you have a bit more trouble with that one. It might take a couple of weeks to get down right.On one morning, about a week after your arrival, Kakashi Sensei is back in top form."I'll be accompanying Tazuna myself from this day on." he says before looking around. "By the way, where are Kiba and Akamaru?""He probably stayed out all night training." Sasuke states. "Should someone go look for him?">A.I'll go>B.You go, Sasuke>C.He'll be fine>D.Other
>>42199404Not to be rude, but that was not what you said last thread. You said it would be a bad idea because he has a lot of guards, and then we showed why that's arguable.
>>42199659>A.I'll goif you hear explosions send help
>>42199659>A.>D. "Just give me a piece of that bacon. Even if he is captured, he'll smell it a mile away."Also, Give Kakashi a rundown of what we've placed and where, so he knows where to look for any kind of tampering.
>>42199687There are multiple reasons why it would be a bad idea, but I did mention that your mission was elsewhere
>>42199659And then Kiba somehow ended up meeting Haku and getting his "precious people" speechCan you please at least try to not rehash canon?Or are we actually in IT?
>>42199659>>A.I'll goKiba can smell well enough he probably recognized him.
>>42199659>A.I'll goSee, we need to go, because Kiba would be able to identify Haku by smell and then they'd fight and Kiba would die. We're saving your life by intercepting the cute trap before you get to him, Kiba. Yes, this is purely altruistic on our part. It certainly isn't my fetish.
>>42199731>Hey man there's this bandit group with history of raiding villages nearby and our mission is to protect this village, should we go and kill them?>That's stupid man, our mission is to defend village and not to kill bandits
>>42199810Actually, the village itself could burn and we'd still expect payment. Additionally, these aren't bandits, this is a multi-million dollar crime lord who probably has very influential criminal people everywhere who would then want to fuck us over for killing him. (I'M LOOKING AT YOU, DANZO)
>>42199810>Good point. Even if we managed to kill their leadership, leaving our clients alone would leave them open to attack from all the other hundreds of bandits. We should stay nearby, and take advantage of our ability to control the battlefield of this smaller area.
>>42199920>DanzoYes he's reason setting sucks but he has probably nothing to do with GatoWhy would you think he has anything to do with him anyway?And it's not like anyone will know it's us who did it
>>42199701>>42199706>>42199718>>42199723>>42199804>>42199805https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tI55p41FYik&index=3&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85You take off towards where you guys were training.When you approach, you see Kiba talking with someone you think is a girl, while Kiba is wearing biggest dumbest smile you've ever seen. Next to him, Akamaru is barking his head off, but Kiba is ignoring him."Yeah, I'm gonna be Hokage you know. I'll protect the whole village then! Pretty cool, huh?">A. Interrupt>B.Stay hidden>C.Other
>>42199994>C.OtherRealize that this dude looks like hunter nin that took Zabuza and kill him>>42199934The problem here is that bunch of bandits is better that jounin and his ally
>>42199975We are twelve, I don't think we have actually killed someone. I somehow don't think that Kon's plan A would be murder.
>>42199994>B.Stay hidden>Watch on in amusement at Kiba.
>>42199994>Practice controlling our chakra and hide in the trees.
>>42200030>We are twelve, Kakashi was jounin at 12>I don't think we have actually killed someone. We were trained to kill people>I somehow don't think that Kon's plan A would be murder.It would be to explode our enemies
>>42199994>C. Wave the bacon around subtly
>>42199994>C.OtherJoin Akamaru, see what he's on to.
>>42199994>>A. InterruptIn the name of friendship, we must knock him down a peg or seven.
>>42199994>A. InterruptWingman for Kiba on this, though. Make up some excuse for our interruption that makes him sound awesome and badass.
>>42200043>>42200076You stay hidden in the trees."I'm sure you'll become very strong with a dream like that. We'll meet again." the girl? tells Kiba before getting up to walk away. "By the way, I'm a boy."Kiba recoils in surprise. You struggle not to give your position away laughing, but you notice the boy glance in your direction as he leaves.You approach Kiba as he's still reeling. "There is no way that was a guy! Huh? What's that Akamaru? You say we've seen him before?">A.He was the tracker nin>B.Keep it to yourself>C.Other
>>42200279>C.Other"Aren't you supposed to be able to smell things like that?"
>>42200279>A.He was the tracker nin"Hey Kiba, I'm not gonna judge you."
>>42200279>"You'd think he would change his hair. The height, the posture, she even saw me. Definitely the tracker nin. Seriously, I don't even speak dog and I could tell that's what Akamaru's been yapping about for the past ten minutes...oh man, wait till Sasuke hears you were hitting on a boy."
>>42200279>A.He was the tracker nin"He could have stabbed your neck full of needles, but he didn't."
>>42200364he even saw me*
>>42200279He's working with Zabuza. Which means Gato will attack the village and the bridge.We should post guard at the house and bridge.
>>42200279>>A.He was the tracker nin>>C.Other"I'm not judging. Hot is hot. And hey, he didn't stab you, so you might have a shot."
>>42200311I'm sure his own musk masked that pretty well.
>>42200279>A.He was the tracker nin
>>42200352>>42200364>>42200380>>42200420>>42200454>>42200463>>42200474"He was the tracker nin." you tell Kiba. "He even saw me in my hiding spot. Aren't you supposed to be able to smell things like that?""Shut up!" Kiba barks. "I was distracted, okay?""Well..." you start. "He didn't kill you even though he certainly could have, so maybe hitting on him saved your life?"After giving Kiba a hard time, you both return to the house.The next morning, Kakashi declares that you are all done with training, and will be guarding Tazuna as a team from this point."Wait." you tell your Sensei. "I think we should post someone at the house, just in case.""It's certainly possible that Gato may send people here." Kakashi admits. "Who do you think should stay then?">A.I'll do it>B.Kiba>C.Sasuke>D.Other
>>42200738>A.I'll do it
>>42200738We'll do it.Time for a home alone ninja edition.
>>42200738>D. Iunno, there's merits to each of us. Kiba's fast enough to get to one place or another quickly, Sasuke's got the most powerful jutsu, and I've got traps. Speaking of traps, that tracker nin looks alot like a girl. Don't ask.
>>42200738...or we could bring the potential hostages with us rather than splitting our forces?
>>42200738>D.OtherSet traps around the house then everyone can head to the bridge.
>>42200800Seconding the trap comment.
>>42200738>>B.KibaHe's the fastest. He'll be able to get to the rest of us soonest if there's an attack he cant handle alone.
>>42200738>D.Otherwe'll set traps.
>>42200738>A.I'll do itI really don't think just setting traps is gonna be fine if there's no one around to follow up on it.
If we do stay on defense we should be sure Tazuna knows that we can't guarantee that the house won't become his next building project when we're done.
>>42200781>>42200785>>42200844>>42200900https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kQWQiMypjc&index=18&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85"I'll do it." you tell him.After everyone leaves, you set up traps in some prime avenues of approach. Wires, explosive tags, the whole shebang.Sure enough, only a few hours later your premonition comes true. Two thugs with swords start to approach the house. Much to their dismay, they walk right into one of your wires.Behind them, some explosive tags go off, prompting them to draw their swords and run further ahead to get away. When they do so, they run into another set of explosive tags and are blown up in the air. they land just short of the house, burned all over, and clearly in no condition to threaten anybody."Please don't kill us." one says. "We'll leave you alone! Uhh... they're attacking the bridge right now, you know? You don't really have time to deal with us, right? You should hurry!"Behind you, Inari looks worried.>A.Leave these guys, just go to the bridge>B.Deal with them further>C.Say something to Inari>D.Other
>>42201269Knock them out and ti them upThen Hit the bridge up.
>>42201269Kick them in the head until they are unconscious then move on to the bridge
>>42201269>Enemy triggers trap and explosion doesn't even hurt himWe suck at traps>B.Deal with them further
>>42201269>D.OtherTie them up, toss their swords up on the roof of the house, and take the smaller ones hat.
>>42201269>Tie them up and then steal the hat and at least one sword.We dreamed of this hat.We wanted this sword.
>>42201269>C.Say something to Inari"We can't kill Gato due to politics. We can kill all of his thugs that threaten us. Here's your chance kid."
>>42201269Swords, hat and eyepatch.I have bridge to debut on.Tie them up and tell them a explosive tag is rigged should they move.
>>42201269>C.Say something to Inari"Stay inside, and make sure you keep clear of the traps. I need to go be a hero."And then head to the bridge.
>>42201269>D. "Who and how many?"
>>42201299we should also tell Inari to hide somewhere sage
>>42201269>B.Deal with them further"Inari, be a bro and bring your neighbors over here. They can take it from here."
>>42201269>>B.Deal with them furtherKnock them out, tie them up, take their weapons. And the hat. Then bridge.
>>42201269>B.Deal with them furtherAt least tie them up with wire/rope on their hands and legs. Then knock them out. Never trust bandits. >C.Say something to InariTell him to we're going to help at the bridge. Get in the house and keep safe with his mum.
>>42201326>>42201331>>42201413TAKE THE HATseconding all calls to take the hat and at least one sword
>>42201450We definitely need the sword, so we can at least pay back Tenten if we don't get Zabuza's.
>>42201450>stealing a sword from a samuraiIt's like you WANT to make an enemy of the guy.
>>42201478It's normal swordProbably of shitty quality too
>>42201567It's still basically free money for Tenten, even if it's nothing special.
>>42201555he's piss weak and a runaway. There's literally nothing he can do about it.>>42201567it's better than nothing. At the very least we can trade it in.
Ah, the proud /tg/ tradition of looting.Swords, any ninja tools they have, that guy's hat. Take 'em all, they're ours now. And while we're at it, can we make ourselves look like one of the thugs?
>>42201299>>42201311>>42201317>>42201324>>42201326>>42201331>>42201340>>42201402>>42201413>>42201429https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pWEtpcFCjo&index=15&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85You knock both of the thugs out, and stash their swords away. You also really like the shorter one's hat, so you decide to take it for yourself.Afterwards, you turn back towards Inari. "You should probably make sure you and your mom stay safe. Maybe meet up with some neighbors. I've got to go."You take off toward the bridge. Soon enough you arrive. It's already enveloped in mist, likely a result of Zabuza's jutsu.Upon closer inspection, you see two fights occurring. Who you think is Zazbuza and Kakashi Sensei are clashing one-on one, and further along the bridge you see some sort of weird panels surrounding a couple of people.It's then that you notice Tazuna standing alone, with no guard.>A.Try to assist Sensei so he can beat Zabuza quickly>B.It's too dangerous to leave Tazuna alone, what were they thinking?>C.Kiba and Sasuke probably can't beat that guy, I should join them>D.Other
>>42201691>C.Kiba and Sasuke probably can't beat that guy, I should join them
>>42201691Explosive tags on the trap. Biggest boom we can manage
>>42201691>C.Kiba and Sasuke probably can't beat that guy, I should join themWe are not gonna be the Sakura here, god damn it.
>>42201691>D.OtherCould we imitate that thug we took the hat from and make it look like we killed off Tazuna? Use that momentary distraction to our advantage?
>>42201691>Kiba and Sasuke probably can't beat that guy, I should join themBut DON'T rush in
>>42201691>B.It's too dangerous to leave Tazuna alone, what were they thinking?
>>42201691>Get tags ready to detonate those panels. They're probably bad.
>>42201691>>B.It's too dangerous to leave Tazuna alone, what were they thinking?Then start lobbing explosives close to the panels on one side.
>>42201731>>42201743>>42201749https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qthu7Z_pglk&index=21&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85You decide to sneak around to those panels. You approach from under the bridge like you had practiced.When you get close, you can see more clearly. Inside the panels, which seem to be made from ice, are Kiba and Akamaru, along with Sasuke. They look pretty cut up by senbon, seemingly wielded by the tracker nin, who is somehow inside the ice panels.You think about how best to approach.>A.Run inside the panels>B.Try some explosives on the panels>C.Other
>>42201951>B.Try some explosives on the panels
>>42201951>C.OtherTry to explode the panels, but also prepare a more physical barrage immediately after.
>>42201951>A. Try to get inside the panelsThey need our help, gais
>>42201951>>B.Try some explosives on the panelsBoom is always best plan.
>>42201951>B.Try some explosives on the panelstime for stealth explosions
>>42201951Drop smoke in the enclosure. Its not like Haku has supersenses, so they should be able to break out.
>>42201951>C.OtherCause as much damage as we can, and try to get Kiba and Akamaru out to look after Tazuna.We really should have included that in our plans.
>>42202056If he can't aim correctly he will probably go for killHe hates killing but if there's chance he can't knock them out he will probably kill them
>>422021041. Damn hard to kill with those things2. Meta as fuck.
>>42201975>>42201991>>42201997>>42202018>>42202054https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pWEtpcFCjo&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=15You prep some explosive tags and attach them to kunai.You throw them at one of the panels and they explode. Unfortunately, it only causes a few small cracks. The hunter nin notices you and makes a quick seal with one hand that shores up the cracks immediately."You'll need a lot more than that to destroy my crystal ice mirrors." he says. Even if you attack from both sides, you genin just don't have enough strength."From inside the mirrors, Sasuke looks at you.You know he means to try that trick again. You throw more explosive tags as he preforms his hand seals. "Fire Release: Fireball Jutsu!"Once again, the combination of Sasuke's fire and your tags cause a huge explosion.Before the smoke even clears Kiba jumps in, and with the strongest strike he can manage, shatters the mirror."How do you like that?" he asks.Sasuke and Kiba look pretty worn. You've destroyed one mirror, but several still surround your teammates. Somehow you get the feeling that he won't let you whittle down all the mirrors, but you don't know what else to do.>A.Go in the mirrors>B.Try some more explosives>C.Give directions>D.Other
>>42202375>>B.Try some more explosivesBoom didn't work? NEEDS MORE BOOM.
Can we use shadow clone and physically carry tags over?
>>42202437We haven't learned shadow clones yet, we can only make illusory ones.
>>42202375>B.Try some more explosivesplan B is twice as much explosives as A
>>42202375>D.OtherTry and run the line from our weapon between some of the mirrors, pull him out of his own technique.And for god's sake, have someone watch Tazuna.
>>42202375>D.OtherCan't they just leave? Are the mirrors moving with them when they try to get out?
>>42202466so trap his mirrors?changing vote from this >>42202464to >>42202466
Lets blow up the ground underneath the mirrors. Let those fuckers sink into the ocean
>>42202466Or if we have wire, fake him out with kunai that have fake tags on them, and use it to run wire around the inside of the cage. At least restrict his movement, make it easier for Sasuke to aim.
>>42202375>Kiba. I'm going to draw him out. You hit with fang over fang. Sasuke, go for a feint!
>>42202524This doesn't seem to be a bad plan. It'd give Sasuke and Kiba a chance to work on their chakra control, and we already know the mirrors aren't a complete sphere.
>>42202524That would have been good if we'd have done something OTHER than run straight in as soon as we'd arrived. But now that Haku knows we're here, how do you propose to drop a section of bridge as a surprise?
>>42202524The mirrors are already floating. They are suspended in the air. The bridge is pretty damn thick concrete anyway, it'd take a long time to get through it.
>>42202524Arn't the mirrors floating anyway? I really don't think that be a good idea. Not to mention dropping our squad mates into a position they can't up in.
>Explosive tag cracks a mirror>Kiba can shatter these with punch
>>42202724Yeah, welcome to the Naruto universe.
>>42202724You know in canon they were talking about being able to destroy them if they attacked from both sides, rightThat's what you're doing
>>42202375One destroyed mirror should be enough of an opening for one of them to escape, get kiba out of there, kiba helps kakashi, we help sasuke break out
>>42202813If Kiba escapes, he goes and watches fucking Tazuna.I mean shit, that's the reason we're even HERE.
>>42202521But how do you trap a trap?
>>42202524You want to blow up the bridge our teammates are on, over some water, while they're fighting a water user?
>>42202929Big buff shirtless dudes. Why do you think Zabuza dresses that way?
>>42202466https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qthu7Z_pglk&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=21"Kiba, use this opening to escape!" you yell.Kiba starts to run towards the gap in the mirrors, only to be met by a hail of senbon. He crouches over Akamaru to shield him. The masked ninja appears before him and kicks him back to the center."You will not escape." the masked nin states. "I was told to keep you here especially".The rain of senbon returns in full force, Kiba taking hits all over. Sasuke seems to be having some luck dodging, but is taking hits as well.Now that you know he's moving from mirror to mirror, you try to catch him with your kyoketsu-shoge, but to no avail. He's far too fast for you to catch. Unimaginably fast.>A.Keep going for it>B.Try to break another mirror>C.Go in>D.Give directions>E.Other
>>42203145Wrap wire around the mirrors, slow him down and deny his movement.
>>42203145Explosives with fang over fang combo!Tag each mirror.Sasuke shuriken it up!
The idea that wrapping one of his mirrors will do anything is silly
>>42203145>E. Tell them to take coverBreak out the Moab.
>>42203145>>42203180Razor wire is fun. If he tries to pass through... cheese cutter.
>>42203145>C. Go inWe need a better vantage to use our kyoketsu-shoge. Also, Kiba and Sasuke are getting torn up, we need to help them.
>>42203145>A.Keep going for itTry scratching or damaging the inner surfaces of the mirrors on one side of the cage. He was quick to repair them the first time, maybe he needs the surface to be undamaged to use each mirror.
>>42203233And how exactly do we set it up in a way that he won't see it?And I am pretty sure that wire is not standard part of arsenal
>>42203265Use the trap wire in thicker bundles., we just need to cut mirrors off.
>>42203252And we've learned the only way we can break the mirrors is to hit them from both sides. We lose that ability if we go in, and we lose the ability to get back to Tazuna, who we're SUPPOSED to be guarding.
>>42203145> Signal Kiba, transform into a log, have him substitute with us.Kiba needs to rescue Tazuna.
>>42203265Doesn't matter if he sees it or not. If he doesn't, it's curtains. If he does, he either removes it or avoids it. Either way, it slows him down.We have wire. Not sure if it's razor wire, but so long as it's strong enough and reasonably fine there's little difference.
>>42203350I don't think you realize we don't have how to set it up in first placeUnless we mastered earth to such degree we can make things fly
Still say scratching as many mirrors as possible at once could be a winning plan.
>>42203350>razor wireYou keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbed_tape
>>42203434Attatch it to something and throw. Yes that'd be fiddly in reality, but realism is not exactly a strong point of the series.>>42203514Would you rather I said monomolecular wire? Because that's an arse to type every time.
>>42203630Throw at what, we are on fucking bridge
>>42203180https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjjkHg5FOhk&index=6&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85You figure if you can deny his movement through the mirrors, it could give you an edge. You approach the nearest one and pull out all your wire. You throw it up around the mirror and wrap all of it around. The mirror becomes completely enveloped, but you're out of wire."Enough of this." the masked nin states. "I don't have time for you to keep trying every way to deny me the use of my mirrors. I'm going to end this now."He leans out and throws some senbon in your direction. You take a bunch in your leg, and you lose feeling. He's not fooling around anymore.He begins another rain of senbon from in his mirrors. But somehow Sasuke dodges, even grabbing Kiba from out of harm's way."Impossible!" the masked nin declares. "The human eye cannot follow my movements!"Sasuke looks up. You see something familiar in his eyes. The Sharingan."I... can see." Sasuke states.Kiba, clearly in pain, rolls over and gets to his knee. "Thanks Sasuke, but I think we've only got one more move in us."You think as hard as you can. This new development may have given you all a chance, but you only have one shot.>Come up with a plan
>>42203752Kiba makes a break for it as we throw a hail of explosive-tagged kunai, and Sasuke helps one of them connect as Haku tries to attack Kiba.Boom.
>>42203752sasuke can follow his movements and tell us when and where to throw our kyoketsu-shoge to trip him up and pull him away from those damn mirrors, then we disable his hands with the chain.
>>42203848Seconding this plan.
>>42203752Sharingan for Brosuke.We gotta get him to copy fang over fang and have three spinners at once.
>>42203752Throw Kunai with explosive tags up into the mirror. All the explosives we have. Yell for Sasuke, he'll hopefully take the hint and use his fireball jutsu to set them all off. A nice, big boom
>>42203752Kiba needs to evac. We hit as many mirrors as we can with the rest of our explosives, Sasuke runs interference until we can make an exit. Wounding Haku is a bonus, we need to get our team out of his killing field.
>>42203752Kiba, fang over fang, keep moving as long as you can, your movement might be enough for him to get sloppySasuke, use the distraction to find an openingWe'll use the time to rig the mirrors with as many tags as possible
oh god damn it guysWe said we'd go full feels/Naruto in order to save Zabuza and Haku, but then you left it to Kiba. Fuck.
>>42203974Kiba is a pretty good stand in for Naruto. Sadly that would make us Sakura as Sasuke is our Sasuke stand in
>>42203848>>42203872Sasuke's the one who has a chance to actually hit something, even if he's directing us we'd be shooting blind.That's not as effective as giving Sasuke a situation where he can attack himself.
>>42204164I'm alright being Sakura. Except for the pink hair and sasuke fetish, she was a decent character. And before anyone says 'But she was a cunt' everyone was a cunt from Naruto's point of view. Except Hinata, she was a stalker.
What if we gave Sasuke the kyoketsu shoge
>>42204259That would basically be >>42203795 except it's a weapon we have no idea if he knows how to use.
>>42204259He's not trained in its usage.
>>42204233>Sakura>A decent character Since when?
>>42204259>we give sasuke the kyoketsu-shoge>he takes a liking to it>becomes a staple of his fighting style>through a single moment in combat we drastically alter sasuke's fighting style
>>42203962We need to all use our speed, Sasuke can run interference to get Kiba to Tazuna, we are basically pinned, so we should try to empty our pouches of explosives to cause a distraction. We need to get Tazuna out of here, so that is top priority.
>>42204403The time for that was several combat actions ago. Right now we need to take care of Haku, or he'll just continue getting in the way of our mission.
>>42204448>Our missionYou mean the one that is lying defenseless as we fuck about?
Gonna go eat guys, back in a bit
>>42204482Don't bitch at me, I've been suggesting it all along. But at this point it's either we take care of Haku or have him come for us again later.I choose to remove him as a threat while we have him outnumbered.
>>42204571Well than what I think we need is a massive distraction, like a bunch of explosives and substitutions. That way Sasuke can get an opening to get Kiba and him out.
>>42204650That's why I suggested >>42203795That's the whole POINT anon. Create a situation for Sasuke to attack effectively and end the fight with this next shot.
>>42204571Yeah, Haku's serious now so we should just do like a massive attack
Hey guys let me show you future events!>Sasuke or Kiba get knocked out by Haku>Some bullshit happens and they wound Haku>Zabuza get's protected from Kakashi by Haku>And everything else is identical to canon too>Including Zabuza dying by Haku
I wonder if they'll call this the Kiba bridge
>>42204698I know, I see what you're goinng for, I'm agreeing. I think that what we need to do is cause a distraction and let the others do as they may, since we can't exactly call out the plan without tipping Haku off.
>>42204758It'd be less retarded than saving Zabuza and taking him back to the leaf tbh
>>42204758Then vote to do something different.
>>42204797All you need to announce is "Kiba, make a break for it" and Sasuke should be clever enough to take it from there.
>>42204815He is missing-nin for a reason. That reason is countless amounts of child murder.
>>42204841OOC, Haku has 4 intelligence. I think he could infer it too.
>>42204819I doLast time we did something that wasn't following canon OP said that exposition about something that pretty much everyone in this thread knows is needed>>42204815The best part of the whole thing
>>42204871Then he'd be letting Kiba escape by not reacting. And at this point he's still surprised that Sasuke can see him. Can't quite believe that.So there's a better than even chance we can catch him with this. And at least if we fail we'll have failed trying something more meaningful than temporary escape.
>>42204843Technically, that's just the reason he's ninja. He's missing-nin because of one -failed attempt- of child murder. Sorta. I think. How old is Yagura again, because he looks about 12?
>>42204942But in those mirrors, Haku is almost impossible to hit. Heck, in canon, the only reason he lost was Naruto going beast mode. I don't mean to be a downer, but the technique he's using is considered almost unbeatable. I think Sasuke can figure out on his own what to do instead of calling it out. I think "Kiba run!" is the most we can do.
>>42205109Wait, disregard, I misread.
>>42205109Time for our kekkei genkai to awaken on one of their apperant death's!
>>42204969He introduced that thing where students kill each other
>>42205109Yeah, that sounds fun, or we can blow everything up
>>42205109Again, Sasuke can see him move and can move fast enough to try for an attack. All we need to do is give him the best opportunity and the best weapon we can.
>>42205209>and can move fast enough to try for an attackI found the error
>>42205209He doesn't know how to use the weapon we...WAIT THE SWORDS! TOSS ONE TO SASUKE!He knows how to use one.
>>42205246...a not shit option. I'm impressed.Yeah, let's throw a sword to Sasuke.
>>42205246From the very beginning I've been saying "a kunai with an explosive tag". I've linked that suggestion several times.
>>42205167...yes. That's how he became a ninja.
>>42205304Let me rephrase it so you can understand it childYagura (Mizukage) introduced that ritual that Zabuza crashed at quite young age to become ninja
>>42205167Actually, they stopped doing that because of him.
>>42205167>>42205304Wait, you meant Yagura. Nevermind, misread.
>>42205281Did you not catch the part where we unload with those as a distraction?
Your mobility is down, but you have to help your teammates. Sasuke can see the enemy's movements, he just needs a means to hit him hard enough. You decide to toss him one of the swords you took. If Sasuke can't stop him with that, he can't stop him at all. You just need a distraction."Kiba, make a break for it!" you yell. You pull out the sword as you do. As Kiba runs, you toss the sword to Sasuke through the gap. He catches it and makes a jump for the masked nin. You throw all the explosive tags you have to slow the enemy down.The masked nin, slowed trying to avoid the explosive tags, goes to throw senbon and stop Kiba, but is halted. Sasuke holds the sword up, locked against the senbon.At that moment, Kiba and Akamaru come through. "Man-Beast Taijutsu: Fang Over Fang!"Refusing to disengage, Sasuke holds the masked nin in place, still surrounded by the explosions of your tags. As a result, Sasuke is grazed, but he holds out through the pain.Kiba's attack curves around Sasuke and hits its mark. The masked nin is launched back to the ground, and his mask shatters. The mirrors follow shortly, the focus keeping them up broken.The three of you approach the young boy. It's the very same one you suspected. The androgynous boy in the forest.>A.Restrain him>B.Say something>C.Go to Tazuna>D.Go to Kakashi Sensei>E.Other
>>42205895>Call bullshit on Sasuke being faster than Haku
>>42205895>A.Restrain himKiba Guard Tazune, Sausuke go where you think you'll be most effective.
>>42205895>E. "Sasuke, go check on Tazuna. Kiba and I will secure this one."
>>42205895>E.OtherSend Kiba and Sasuke towards Tazuna while we restrain Haku. That gives us a chance to grill Haku.
>>42205895>>E. Kiba restrains himSasuke goes to Tazuna, we go help Kakashi.
>>42205895>A.Restrain himSasuke or Kiba goes to Tazuna and the other goes to Kakashi.
>>42205952And by "grill", I mean demand to know why he refused to kill us. Limb shots with needles when he could have killed our teammates? Outright saying he was just trying to keep us out of the fight?It's dead fucking obvious. Only question is why.
>>42205895>E Other, what >>42205952 this anon saidOnly we get to do butt stuff with Haku
>>42206021What is this "butt stuff" you are talking about?
>>42205983Seconding this. Also tell Sasuke he can keep his sword.
>>42205895>>B.Say something"Kiba, Sasuke. Restrain him. I'll guard Tazuna."Kiba is stronger and faster than either of us. Prisoner holding is likely a strong suit, and with Sasuke to cover blindspots Haku is going nowhere.Tazuna needs guarding.Any of us gets involved in the Zabuza fight is going to get in the way and little else.
>>42206049It's similar to the thousand years of pain jutsu, only it is the thousand years of pleasure jutsu.
>>42206049>>42206150A-anonNaruto is best boy though
What's with all this smut talk? Aren't we like, twelve?
>>42206122Seconding this plan.
>>42206344As if that would ever stop us.
>>42206344That said, we still need to get Tenten something nice while we're out. Especially since Sasuke's probably gonna get to keep the katana we threw him.
>>42205932>>42205951>>42205952>>42205983>>42206021https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ug070QK674&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=7You quickly restrain the boy with rope, and keep him held down as best you can."Kiba, Sasuke, go guard Tazuna or see if you can help Kakashi Sensei!" you direct.Though tired, they do so. Leaving you alone with the boy."Why?" you ask. "You could have killed us all easily, yet you refused to do so."The boy is silent for a moment before he speaks."I am a tool." he begins. "My only purpose is to serve Zabuza, and I have failed. I thought I could preform my duties without killing you, but I was wrong. I am now a broken tool, of use to no one. If I cannot serve my purpose, I would rather die."At your inquisitive look, the boy explains further. About the discrimination against those who carried his kekkei genkai, the deaths of his parents, and his purposeless existence until meeting Zabuza. He spoke fondly of serving under Zabuza, having a purpose."But that is all over now." he finishes. "There is no longer any meaning to my existence."So please, kill me." he pleads.>A.Comply>B.Rebuttal>C.Stay silent
>>42206344It's an off color joke man. And you should see the guys who want to try and 'get with' Kaguya or Tsunade, or any other woman old enough to be our mom. Let alone the obvious fact that an older woman who is way more powerful than a bite sized twerp isn't going to be seeing us as anything other than a son or little brother at most./ss/fags are so fucking weird.
>>42206398I still vote Zabuza's sword. She'd love that thing.
>>42206122We could always give Kakashi the other sword.
>>42206403>That... Everything you said just now is so flawed I can't think of a single rebuttal right off the bat. I'm a bit in awe at your thought process.
>>42206403>B.Rebuttalthats dumb, don't depend on others to provide your purpose, create your own
>>42206403>B.If you have nothing then things can only get better or stay the same. My parents are dead and you don't see me sulking.
>>42206403>>42206468>>42206474>>42206489We should do all of these.
>>42206468I change my vote from>>42206489to this!>>42206468
>>42206403>D.Write-in: "Sorry buddy, I don't really agree with you."Then just knock him the fuck out, Loot EVERYTHING off his body that could be a weapon or used to escape, and tie him down with like a billion feet of rope.Then plunder dat booty
Hey guys, just got word that power's back on at home, so I'm headed back. It'll be about half an hour.
>>42206403>B.Rebuttal"Even a broken knife can still cut. But a dead man can't fight for anything or anyone, so I'm not gonna kill you.""Find whatever meaning you will in that."
oh goddamn man, as entertaining and funny as they are, i don't think any of these options are gonna keep haku alive and possibly be our bro back at our village
>>42206403>>B.Rebuttal"Bull. You never had a purpose. Nobody ever does. Purpose is a lie we tell ourselves to make life more palatable. Nothing matters except what we choose. You lose whatever you want to live for, you find something new, and you remember."
>>42206584Then you try suggesting something.
>>42206403>If we are done talking about being a tool, you're wrong. You CHOSE not to kill us, my kunai don't choose to hit or not. You aren't a tool, you have standards, that makes you more than that. On the other hand, maybe you should think a bit on it yourself. I have to do stuff.>Then knock him out.
>>42206403>B.Rebuttal"A broken tool can be repaired, swords to plowshares and etcetera...and besides tools don't have loyalty"
>>42206684Not that guy, but I think >>42206552 has some decent chances. Convince him he still has a reason to live.
>>42206403>B. Throw a bomb out over the side of the bridge, detonate it before it's out of sight. "Did you see that? What was the purpose of that explosive, from its conception to its detonation? Ultimately meaningless, since it didn't accomplish its intended use of harming the enemy, right? But I found the explosion beautiful, in its own way. Vision distorting in a perfect sphere around the tag as the force pushes air away, then the flames flowing in to fill the void left behind, immediately snuffed by the lack of fuel. Then, as the flames go dim, smoke arises, in patterns twisted by each gentle brush of air as it rushes in to fill the void that was made a moment ago. It might not have served a purpose, but I still found meaning in it, simply for being beautiful. And you are alot more than just beautiful, Haku."
...If we save Haku and bring him back to the village won't everyone assume he is a she? And think of all the misunderstandings that would come from Kon hanging with Haku all the time.>I don't get it man, every time I ask a girl out I get slapped and called a two-timer.
>>42206403>Haku, even I can tell that you really care about Zabuza. That's something a person does, a tool wouldn't be upset about failing at all.>People might be able to act like they're tools, but I don't think it's very healthy for a person to entirely stop being a human being. Repression isn't all it's cracked up to be. So if you can't find meaning in that existence or purpose, then can't you make a new one for yourself?
>>42206773I change from this>>42206710BEAUTIFUL
>>42206856You're trying not to smile. You will fail, anon.
>>42206773haha wow thats both an answer to his question and it sounds like we are hitting on him. I like it.
>all these anons coming together and hashing out what to say so that Haku and Zabuza can liveI love you, /tg/.
>>42206773This is the cheesiest, most Naruto-y one. Yes please.
>>42206892And that's why I hate it. It's pedantic and creepy, and forces something about the character's sexuality.
>>42206925Dude, Kon's twelve. He probably doesn't have sexuality. It barely even reads of us hitting on him anyway.
>>42206925What, that we'd hit it even if it technically wasn't a girl?
>>42206925The GM can fix what is not correct, as he did when replacing a write ins mention of Uzumaki to Nara.It's not hard to take a voters write in and make it IC. Trust me, I know this.
>>42206925Is it really? I think that we have to give this guy something like a compliment, it doesn't force much of anything. And it sounds like actual show dialogue.
>>42206925Also>pedanticWE ARE TWELVE ANON. WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?
>>42206982And the show dialogue made my skin fucking crawl sometimes, it was so bad. Try talking how you think the character would talk instead.>>42206950We're calling him "a lot more than just beautiful.
>>42207036Well, he is. He's also a scary af ninja.
>>42207036Well, Haku is pretty cute whether you make him a guy or a girl. It's not wrong. Nigga be elegant as fuck.
>>42207069In what universe can that be construed as anything ASIDE from making a pass?
>>42207110And who said we aren't making it?
>>42207129Okay, I'm for the explosion thing, but we are not making a pass, we're fucking 12
>>42207178Then why are you so against us calling a guy beautiful? It seems like the right thing to say. And it's hilarious.
>>42207206I'm not, I was actually arguing for it, but we shouldn't be making a pass at anyone, at least until post time-skip.
>>42207178I'm not even in favor of that. Because we are fucking twelve, we have no business philosophizing that verbosely about a fucking explosion. It's fucking silly.I'd kind of like to say something that would make this interaction count, because I doubt that we'll get much of another chance to talk to Haku again.
>>42207253I'm hoping that Laze takes the best of what we've offered up, some kind of ultra combo of all the good bits.
>>42207253Suggest something, then. I typed up that pile of overly complex trash because I wanted something that'd make Haku reconsider offing himself like a bitch.
>>42207288My suggestion was >>42206552Simple, truthful, and short, and you can combine it with another short one for added emphasis. That's what I was going for.
>>42207285That seems to be the best. We've got a lot of options that are decent at their core, that are held back by stupid shit, because tg can't write dialogue.
>>42207342You would get fired from suicide line within a single day
>>42207350My first offering was >>42206468I had a plan in my head but the moment I was confronted with Haku's issue? It's just so stupid. I'm not surprised we're having issues with figuring out what to say.
>>42207361He's our current enemy, not a random civilian. The most we can and should do is make him think twice about dying and refuse to kill him ourselves, but if he's determined to kill himself it's his choice.
>>42207413Well, I mean, it's not like it's a real issue. Haku just isn't right in the head. . I think if we really want to save Haku, we need to keep him from killing himself until he can meet with a Jonin or something that actually knows how to help him.
>>42207413Try thinking about this from perspective of shinobiYou will be surprised how different will this look from that perspective
>>42207422Sir, this is Naruto. We must go full shounen! Shounen does not stand by as someone is trying to commit suicide! We must full understanding!
>>42206773Is everyone okay with this if we cut out Kon just straight up calling Haku beautiful, I mean I kind of like it otherwise
>>42207511I would be totally okay with that.
>>42207504Letting him do as he wishes IS understanding.
>>42207511Yeah. Kon an innocence.
>>42207511If you must, so long as you impress that idea that there's more to Haku than he's giving himself credit for.
>>42207511I still despise it start to finish. It could be shorter, simpler, and focused less on watching shit blow up and more on actually talking to Haku. But do whatever man. It's ultimately your call.
>>42207511It changes messageAnd I don't mean it in sexual wayIt changes message from telling him that he could become our tool to that no matter what he will do it's a waste thanks to the fact he no longer has master
>>42207580I thought the message was that he still has purpose even if he can't accomplish his intended one.
As the writer of >>42206773The point of it was to show that something doesn't have to have a purpose to have meaning, and that having either is enough of a reason to be around. Even if Haku has lost his sense of purpose, he can still find meaning in everything he has done and everything he might do from here on out.
>>42207689I thought it was that he's more than a simple "tool", and that he has the ability to choose his purpose and how he pursues it. And that he's only truly "useless" if he's dead.
>>42207689Think about it from Haku's perspective>There is beauty in broken tools>Too bad your master is fucking dead because you failed your purposeThere is nothing stopping him from thinking about Zabuza and how he failedThe beauty comment takes his mind from it
>>42207773In truth version without beauty would be better fit for Zabuza if Haku died for him
>>42206773You think on everything he said. You try to associate with something you know, and eventually come up with something.You take an explosive tag and throw it off the edge of the bridge, for it to explode in the air."Did you see that?" you ask. "What was the purpose of that explosive, from its conception to its detonation? Ultimately meaningless, since it didn't accomplish its intended use of harming the enemy, right? But I found the explosion beautiful, in its own way. Vision distorting in a perfect sphere around the tag as the force pushes air away, then the flames flowing in to fill the void left behind, immediately snuffed by the lack of fuel. Then, as the flames go dim, smoke arises, in patterns twisted by each gentle brush of air as it rushes in to fill the void that was made a moment ago. It might not have served a purpose, but I still found meaning in it, simply for being beautiful. You already have more than that going for you, but if you die, then you truly have nothing. Not even a chance to find meaning. So I won't kill you."The boy looks down and remains silent.From further down the bridge you hear a strange sound, like chirping birds. You look up and see Kakashi Sensei preparing an attack that looks like it's meant to kill Zabuza.The boy you've restrained looks up, concerned. He starts to struggle with all his might to get free.>A.Hold him down>B.Let him go
>>42207836>A.Hold him down
>>42207836>A. Hold him down
>>42207836>A.Hold him downAs best as we can, anyway.
>>42207836>B. Let him go
>>42207836>>A.Hold him downSorry, but if I know my sensei, one body or ice mirror in the way would not stop what he's about to do.
>>42207836>A. Hold him down"Sorry, but I have my own purpose."
>>42207836This speech does fuckall to someone who sees himself as tool
>>42207836>A.Hold him down"I really am sorry. I know what you want to do, but I can't let you. You know that."
>>42207836>>A.Hold him downKnock him out, if we can.
>>42207836>B. Let him go>"Woops"
I am not sure if OP will make Haku escape anyway because he loves following canon for some reason or will something actually changeI am also not sure if saving Haku will actually throw us out of canon rails
>>42207836>B.Let him go
>>42207836>B.Let him go>"Take your master and leave"
>>42208018>because he loves following canonWe could have decided to go home and not bother with this. We didn't. We've been given choices and the majority decided that this was what we should be doing. Stop whining about it.
>>42208089For some reason, people keep voting for the canon options.
>>42208129I-it's not like we like Naruto or anything, you d-d-dummy!
>>42208129We wanted to have fun with Haku. Taking him back to the village, we're breaking the canon order of events.
>>42208129And the complainers will have to deal with it.
>>42208129Because so far the canon is good.
>>42207844>>42207858>>42207862>>42207869>>42207870>>42207944>>42207965Using all the strength you have left, you hold the boy down. He thrashes as hard as he can but can't break free, forced to watch as his master is run through by Kakashi Sensei's attack.Zabuza falls to the ground, still breathing lightly, but clearly for mere moments more. The gaping wound indicates that there is likely no way he could be saved.The boy under you stops his movement.>A.Head over to Sensei and Zabuza>B.Stay put>C.Other
>>42208198Yeah, but I'd be interested in seeing us deviating more from it. Which I guess will happen regardless once we get to the Chunin exams.
>>42208204>B. Stay put
>>42208204>C.OtherTell Haku we're sorry. It's the least we can do.
>>42208204>A.Head over to Sensei and Zabuza
>>42208204>B. Stay put"I'm sorry. But what's done is done."
>>42208216We can deviate from canon when it nears the shit point, Anon.>>42208204Seconding>>42208237
>>42208204>B.Stay put"It may seem crueler this way, but if he cared about you half as much as you cared about him I don't think he'd want you to throw your life away. And make no mistake, if I'd let you go you'd have been killed, and Zabuza would still have died.""Don't throw your life away. Remember those you've lost, and honor their memory."
>>42208204Nab the sword.
>>42208347Oh shit guys.This means we'll have to let Haku keep the sword as a momento.
>>42208204>C. There'd be no meaning to dying like that, Haku. And it wouldn't have accomplished much anyways. Against all three of us, Zabuza would still have died, and then there'd be noone who knew him to remember him."
>>42208371Oh hell no.
>>42208371And his headband.
>>42208371I'm fine with that. We have another sword to give to Tenten, one that isn't known for butchering thousands.
I don't think you guys really understand Japanese mindset
>>42208371A memento, as in, a grave marker?
>>42208398All four of us, sorry. Five counting Akamaru.>>42208417No, I don't. Do you live in feudal japan and/or have you done extensive personal research on the Bushido code?
>>42208371nah, we're nabbing the sword for ourselves, or at least TenTen.
>>42208417Most Japanese don't understand the feudal "Japanese mindset" anymore.
>>42208445We are not.
>>42208415The reputation makes coolerCooler= better In the Naruto universe that is.
I like how tired Kakashi will have to kill all these bandits nowAlso we haven't motivated that child to make him go and rouse people
>>42208493No, it's Haku's to decide what to do with.
>>42208204>>B.Stay putA pity, but not unexpected.
>>42208499Maybe he will give it to us?As his new important person, ehh.
>>42208517I sure as hell don't want it, the Seven Swordsmen will want it back and I am not confident at all in our ability to do shit. I'm still surprised the sword plan worked, and I'm the one who suggested it.
>>42208555Hm, maybe we could have a feng shui motif with all this foresight into the future we have?
>>42208499Can we take haku as our new tool?
>>42208517He probably hates us now
>>42208609No. Not only is he stronger than us, he probably hates us.
>>42208609That speech we gave makes us look like bad masterKakashi has bigger chance of taking Haku as toolAnd he killed Zabuza
>>42208609He could be our trap
>>42208665Yeah, we're pretty hypocritical for wasting one of our explosives and then sitting on Haku, not letting him do what he wants.
So I am rereading mangaThe fact we pulled out victory against Haku is bullshitAlso Kakashi defeated Zabuza so quickly only thanks to Kyuubi
>>42208682Ma manThats my masterplan
>>42208718I guess that makes the power of teamwork superior to that of a magic fox, eh?
>>42208682I intend to release him into the wild as a rogue ninja after this.
>>42208769The problem is that teamwork is not that great in comprassionAlso Kiba, Akamaru and Sasuke should be in way worse state
>>42208718That's why I was really surprised the sword worked. I'm not complaining, we would have died otherwise. And yeah, we basically fucked any amount of canon beating that technique.
>>42208769>Chunin examsA Wild HAKU Appears!Go, AKAMARU!
Talk about foreshadowing
>>42208804You know.... i was thinkng using kakashi and sasuke to copy fang over fang. We will have 4 spinnibg drill. They can use wire too
>>42208220>>42208255>>42208266>>42208325>>42208513https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ug070QK674&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=7"Sorry." you tell the boy. "But if I let you go and die, Zabuza would still have died to all of us. At least you haven't died for nothing."Zabuza turns his head. "Haku..." he groans. "So in the end you were too soft... too kind. I wasn't able to change your true nature. Even though... you were a great tool... I still wasn't able to achieve my dream."You notice the boy beneath you, Haku, is now crying."Fine..." Zabuza states. "Do... as you wish."With that, Zabuza passes. Kakashi begins to walk over to you, when you all hear a group approaching from further down the bridge. It's a short man with a cane followed by a huge group of thugs."Well, well, well." The short man, assumably Gato, says. "So that's all the Demon of the Hidden Mist could manage. Pathetic. But hey, I don't have to pay him anymore, so thanks for that, hahaha!">A.Say something>B.Do something>C.Stay silent>D.Other
>>42208872Really? Now you show up? Kakashi can I kill him?
>>42208912Holy shit, anon. You're making us as much a manipulative little shit as Orochimaru. I approve, of course.
>>42208872>B.Do something>Pull out some shurikens.
>>42208872>A.Say something"Whatever Zabuza's dream once was is in your hands now. Like it or not, your duty to him now is to survive.""Don't forget that, Haku."
>>42208872>A.Say something>D.OtherAsk Kakashi if we should do something about him and those sword wielding assholes.>>42208912>>42208952Let's not do that.
>>42208872>A.Say something>B.Do somethinglooks like you brought the party with you, now we can have a blast. (throw exploding tags)
>>42208915Even wounded Zabuza could wreck usAnd these guys killed himDo the mathAlso as we won't get support from villagers we will actually need to kill them allA drained jounin with two wounded genin and explosives maniac without explosivesAnd to boot Haku will attack us soon
>>42208981They killed him because it was like, 50 vs. 1. Even some of the best ninja would get murdered under those odds.
>>42208872>A. "Hey, Kakashi, if I give you my new sword can I get first picks on whatever these assholes brought?"
>>42209017Not reallyAlso the problem is that they won't retreatBut the true problem is Haku and the fact he won't hold back on us now
>>42209032Enough with the sword, we don't even use or care about swords.
>>42208872>>B.Do somethingUnlike Zabuza at this point in canon, we have full use of our arms. Throw a kunai into Gato's throat.
>>42209063No, I mean we still have one of the two we lifted off those thugs. Sasuke got one, we still have another.
>>42209091We should at least save that for Tenten. Kakashi probably wouldn't want it anyway.
So who want's to bet we somehow motivated Inari to rally people even though we did nothing that would do it?
>>42209076Do it! Are the mercs gonna get paid by a corpse?
>>42209123Might have been Kiba... But we can take'em!
>>42209128They wanted to kill team 7 after Zabuza killed a bunch of them and Gato
>>42208872>B. Kill the crimelord with a knife with a tag.
>>42209150Well, Kiba has become our Naruto. I know we're Sakura, but who's Sasuke? I bet it's Kakashi.
>>42209183We're actually not Sakura. We do stuff, and are important to the plot, and have some actual drive.
>>42208912DO IT FAGT
>>42209203But Sakura was important to the...Okay, I can't even fake it. We are better than Sakura in any way that isn't healing. And she still exists in this universe. Maybe Kon really doesn't like her for some reason.
>>42208912Let's fucking not, shall we? We've gone all this way to keep Haku alive, and have him start thinking that maybe he can find a new purpose after this and keep living.I don't wanna undo that.
>>42209228It actually won't do what you think it willIt will make him remember we are reason Zabuza is deadAnd I have no doubt he has no heart to kill anymore
>>42208912I don't want this to win, even though it's my write-in...so...
>>42208872>D. OtherLet haku up"Fight, run, from now on it's your choice"(Sorry if it's shit, it was just the first thing that came to mind)
>>42209309>The person responsible for Zabuza's death!>I have chance to avenge Zabuza!And that's how we die horrible death
>>42208872>Hey Gato? Fuck you.We have weapons and can probably kill him. So let's fucking kill him.
>>42208872>A.Say something"Haku. You have to survive to keep Zabuza's dream alive, and my mission is to keep Tazuna's dream alive.""We both have to do what we must."
>>42209405His goal was revenge
>>42209431And what do we know about that IC? Have we ever really spoken to Zabuza?
Welp, my write-ins have won the last three votes, and I just deleted what would have been a fourth write-in win. My work here is done. Goodnight, all, and enjoy your clusterfuck
Hey Laze, might want to archive just in case you forget later.
>>42208718Not really, Haku himself says that the technique is very chakra consuming. Not to mention even in the manga Sasuke was starting to read his movements better to the point that he singed Haku with one of his fireballs. Sasuke went down because he took a barrage of senbon in the place of Naruto. This is not so much an issue here because Kiba is faster than Naruto, heck he's faster than Sasuke. So all those little factors together plus eliminating his range of movement slightly was just enough for us to eke out a win. Also Kakashi how was Kyuubi the only reason Kakashi beat Zabuza? Last I remember at the point the fox only powered up Naruto.
>>42208959>>42208979>>42209076>>42209174https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daPo6q4FXDw&index=20&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85Gato walks his way over to Zabuza's corpse. "While I'm here, I might as well get my kicks in!" he laughs as he kicks the corpse. "Alright boys, let's get ready to clean up."You get up and prepare a tagged kunai. As you throw it, the thugs move to intercept. They stop however, when they are surprised by a pillar of ice.Gato, his foot still held up ready to kick Zabuza again, is surrounded by ice, Haku having made a hand sign behind his back when you got up."Wh-what is this?" he manages to stammer before your kunai hits him dead on in the forehead. The look of disbelief is the last thing on his face before he's blown to smithereens.The thugs look around for a bit before seeming to come to a consensus. "Well now who's going to pay us, huh?" one asks. "I guess we'll just have to take it from that village, then! Come on, boys!"As they begin to make their charge, a crossbow bolt hits the ground in front of them.You look to see the villagers, all led by Giichi, together with what weapons they could find."You were right, Tazuna." he calls. "This bridge is our town's hope. If we don't want to spend our lives wasting away to nothing, we have to fight while we have the chance! Down to the last man!"The thugs look apprehensive.>A.Say something>B.Do something>C.Other
>>42209609Once again, I'm just glad we survived it, I was dreading it from the second this mission started. The crowd is less disconcerting because we have enough explosives to do crowd control.
>>42209609Kakashi would won anywayHe used dogs thanks to KyuubiAlso you are forgetting AkamaruHe's not indestructible you know?Haku was also going for nonlethal nearly all the time
>>42209635>A.Say something>"Leave," pull out more kunais, "Or [else]."
>>42209635>A.Say something"Leave your weapons. Take only your lives and your shame. Consider yourselves blessed for the privilege."
>>42209635>A. "No pay, no weak townsfolk to roll over while you rob them, and nowhere to run. My advice: drop your weapons and surrender. At least then they might let you live."
>>42209635>B. Begin throwing more explosives at the thugsThe fireworks stop for no man!
>>42209635>A.Say something>"This village is now under the protection of the shinobi of the hidden leaf village. If you try and stop the production anymore, we'll wipe your pitiful company off the map."
>>42209635I have very strong felling we aren't following canon only thanks to votersAlso voting to cast kai
>>42209635Are you planning on starting another thread?
>>42209635>>B.Do somethingStart throwing, lazily, no real hurry. Aim for anyone who looks like a possible ringleader>>A.Say something"Leave, now. Or you don't leave at all."Also, I have to say.Tazuna roused the villagers. Tazuna therapy jutsu'd the village into helping.Tazuna?I... what?
>>42209770It's not a great spot, but I'll wrap it up for now with the next post.
>>42209756?>>42209796OP just want's to write canon with different charactersOnly time we decided to go against canon he railroaded us into canon for no reason as that event was fucking pointless
>>42209846Who knows, maybe Kiba and Sasuke gave plenty of motivational talks while we were away?
>>42209846On the plus side, after this arc, that's probably going to change. I am still in shock that we survived. Naruto was either truly a shit, or we are amazing.
>>42209900Our survival required more plot armor than survival of Naruto had
>>42209921I feel like we've been cursed because of how not special we are. Because we don't have anything super notable about us, we keep having to be saved by a ridiculous amount of plot armor. We really need to either get training super hard, or find our kekkei genkai soon.
>>42209945Feng Shui, we should start learning it.
>>42209945And the worst part is that we could have had perfectly legit adventure if OP decided to ditch Wave
>>42209945Maybe we can train really hard to get good at blowing up stuff. Like Deidara level good.
>>42209945We don't necessarily have the kekkei genkai, but I do agree.I say up Genjutsu so that we can make people think they're walking up to their friend, but it turns out it's just a humanoid bomb dummy.
>>42209977He had bloodline to make explosions and forbidden technique from Iwa to make clayTraining has close to nothing with it outside of becoming S rank in other stats
>>42209945Maybe that is our kekkei genkai.Uchiha have sharingan hax, we have unconscious probability manipulation masquerading as plot armour.I'm being facetious. I think. I hope.
>>42209966Then become Joseph Joestar?>Your next line is...
>>42209994Genjutsu is just good to know anyway if for no reason other than countering other genjutsu, and really drilling our reiatsu control can make that easier.
>>42209968You mean if the Voters had voted to not go on the Wave Mission? Because we had that option. How can you not understand that it was the players who voted to go through with the mission? We were given the option to go back to Konoha. The majority voted to continue the mission because everyone likes Zabuza and Haku.For fucks sake stop being a little bitch about it! I get it, you're a fucking retard. You can stop posting now.
From pure curiosity OPHave you seen whole manga?Or anime at least?
>>42210033That's abandoning mission we were givenWe never actually got choice of mission
>>42209675>>42209676>>42209670>>42209796You pull some more kunai. Everyone else on your team does the same."No pay, no weak townsfolk to roll over while you rob them, you might want to leave with your lives while you have the chance." you say before throwing a few kunai at the thug's feet. "Or you could just not leave at all."The townspeople all brandish their weapons.The thugs all start to run backwards off the bridge, several making comments akin to "It's not worth it."As the townspeople cheer in celebration, your team walks back over to Zabuza's corpse. Haku had made his way over there, and is leaned over it now."How can I live now." he mutters. "I am back where I started. Alone and without a purpose in this world.""You know..." Kakashi Sensei starts. "I felt like that too, once. There was a time in my life when I had lost everyone I cared about. I was living without a purpose. But you have to keep on living. If you do, you can always find something worth living for. I don't know what it could be for you Haku, but you can't find it if you're dead. Keep living, and find people to live for."Haku stays silent. You don't know if anything that has been said will get through to him, but you do know that your mission here in the Land of Waves is as good as complete. The townspeople have stood up for themselves, and the bridge will be built. You can rest easy for now.>End of Chapter 7Alright, there we areSorry to those anons that are disappointedTwitter is @Laze QM may run tomorrow, may not, keep your eye out
>>42210092No the original mission was to babysit some Lord's son.
>>42210092>Oh no, anon called me out on being wrong>Better move the goal post!Sure, I'll play along. We had the option of telling Kakashi we didn't think we were ready for a C rank mission.
>>42210047I have read the whole mangaI ditched the anime early during Shippuden, after the rescue Gaara arc
I have faith in OP. Before this mission, and even during the early bits of it, there were plenty of options and chances for us to diverge from canon, I think it's just this mission that's a problem. Seriously, I think it's because we're so comparatively weak.
>>42210134Was Naruto ever even born here? Feel free to be cryptic or just not answer.
>>42210154Still think he's that ANBU guy we saw earlier.
>>42210134Yeah, Shippuden's quality isn't that good.
>>42210154The fifth has a short ANBU with him, we think it may be Naruto.
>>42210177I'm curious, is our family's Kekkei Genkai something we've seen in canon, or is it completely new?
>>42210129You should reread what I wroteI don't really see how I am moving goalposts
>>42210177Yes! Naruto a best.
>>42210198Kon's family doesn't have one.His father's family did, but he didn't get it.
>>42210198I still haven't decided exactly. I'm considering between a couple of options.Also yeah >>42210224
>>42210200Why are you not responding to my post, in which I proved you wrong again?Could it be that you have nothing to refute my point?
>>42210224Right that's what I mean. >>42210245Cool. It might be kinda special snowflakey, but I'm holding out hope for some kind of dojutsu.
>>42209900At this point Naruto was really shit and the only thing he had going for him was grit, buttloads of chakra and the fox. Heck Sasuke got taken out of the fight from protecting him.
>>42210323Naruto had the amazing power of Deus ex machina.
>>42210262It really would be. But I just want us to get something to keep us from ending up totally outclassed.
Would you a Naruko?
>>42210419Naruko best girl. Failing that, Tenten.
>>42210419In a heartbeat, but I'm unattractive.
>>42210432Mah fucking nigga!
Still wanna see Tenten flip her shit about us bringing back a "cute girl".
>>42210458Anon, Naruto/kos are for cutes. Not Slaanesh style lewds.
>>42210472If we get Haku to come back with us, which is a big if. Maybe Kakashi could help us out with it, though.
>>42210419Cute, but annoying. Probably not.
>>42210500You must get proper consent and first give tender lovings. Otherwise I cannot accept it.>>42210533Are you saying that Naruko would be worse than Sakura or Ino?
>>42210581Sakura and Ino are the worst regardless.
>>42210590Ino isn't even close to as bad as Sakura
>>42210503Well, we WERE the one who restrained him instead of letting him throw his life away. So that could go either very well or very poorly.
>>42210615Early on, she was kind of a mega bitch to anyone that wasn't Sasuke. She did get better at least.
>>42210590Sakura can be okay. All of team 7 grew up well.
>>42210581I don't think anyone would be cruel enough to say that.
>>42210629Holy shit, that would actually be incredible.
>>42210624Sasuke is literally an autistic man that is more comfortable around children than adultsHow is that growing up well
>>42210647Well, considering the circumstances I'm surprised he's not worse.
>>42210647Ask Itachi.Fucking Itachi. Sasuke was such a cute kid too, but noooooo, mister 'best brother ever' decided he had to repeatedly mindfuck Sasuke because surely that won't be bad for him!God damn it Itachi! At least now Sasuke has some sort of peace. And his kid isn't as fucked up as he is.
Also, have we decided on Tenten for waifu?
>>42210693No, but she seems to have a following.
Rank the currently available girls (girls that kon would know/know of and are in the same general age group) in order from least to most likely that he would choose
>>42210693>>42210699I say Tenten for best friend instead of waifu.
>>42210693She's the only girl kon's interacted with so far, we can't make that decision yet
>>42210693What's funny is that if you guys hadn't decided to go shopping, you may not have even seen her again outside of the chunin examsBut look how it ended upShe's the only genin outside of your squad that you've had a conversation with so far
>>42210706I'd like that.
>>42210701An unnamed classmate? Who knows. The Uchiha clan is normal here, so we can't assume that Sakura or Ino are the same as in canon. And no Naruto too, so Hinata is probably different.We have a paint Sai instead.
>>42210701SakuraInoHinataTentenAnyone I'm missing? We should know all the leaf village genin, since we were in the same, but other than that, I can't think of anything else.
>>42210706Bestfriend'ing should always come before Waifu'ing.I'm going to be waiting to hear more about the changes to the setting before I move to waifu anyone. In case we have a Naruko. Shame we aren't a girl, this series has a bunch of hasubandos. Then again this is /tg/ and we'd surely be a lesbian due to the majority rules. It's so sad I could almost frown.
>>42210701Ami (that bully girl, she a shit)Sakura (pinky is pretty shit)Ino (is slightly less shit)Hinata (personally always found her annoying and kinda creepy, but not really all that shit)Tenten (cool but gets no screentime)And there are no other female characters Kon's likely to know in his age group. I think. Did Shiho (Shika's stalker, in the I think it was codebreaking department) ever go to the acadamy? Because if so she goes next to Hinata.
Honestly, it seemed even going in that Tenten would be the best choice. She has more fortitude than a wet paper bag, she's not a total bitch, she has no snowflake powers, and on top of that she opened up to Kon immediately.I really doubt we'll find a more tolerable girl in our own village, and cross-village has never REALLY been an option in the setting until after the Shinobi World War.
>>42210781Wait!The daughter of the guy who runs the ramen shop! It could be like Romeo and Juliet!
>>42211012I think she's a little out of age group. And a civilian, as well.How taboo~
>>42211047Hey, marrying a civilian would be better than letting marriage interfere with your professional career. Jia Xu did it, and nothing bad ever happened to him!
>>42211155Could be fun.Seriously, though.Could we just not waifu or husbando? At least not for a good long while. Let things develop as they will.
