>>42630219First for being sealed with Kurama in 60 threads
>>42630219Hype for calling Tsunade a cunt.
>>42630219fuck i leave for work in 5 minutesguess ill be reading the archive
>>42630219Posting a visual aid.
>>42630253I'm pretty sure that if you're not an Uzumaki or have the Rinnegan you can't have a Tailed Beast sealed in you past age ten or so.
More time with monkey man Enma and his cool monkey family.
>>42630283I'm gonna bring up again that I really think we should get our Genjutsu up a little.I'm not saying it should be a focus (priority number 1 should be getting Strength to 2), but it's a massive, glaring weakness. Right now even scrub-tier Genjutsu practitioners could rape our brain.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=li05DqEnjx0&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=53Tsunade just keeps putting down sake, with Sarutobi Sensei having his share. You and Konohamaru just munch on some appetizers as they arrive at your table."It's like a reunion, all these familiar faces showing up at the same time." Tsunade murmurs. "And they all seem to want favors. Who's next, Jiraiya?""Jiraiya's currently recovering from his own run-in with Orochimaru." the Third says as he takes another drink. "I take it Orochimaru wants you to help him recover?""That's right." Tsunade responds. She takes out a deck of cards and shuffles it before placing it between her and her teacher. "But you're both out of luck, I don't do that anymore."The two of them start to play a hand. "There's no point. I heal them, and they go off to die anyway." Tsunade starts. "Especially the Hokage. Your predecessors and your successor, throwing their lives away all for the sake of the village? Money is one thing, but a life's another. To risk your life against all the odds? That's a sucker's bet. They lost their lives alright, and the village is no safer than it ever was."Next to you, Konohamaru is trembling with anger."You've changed, Tsunade." the Third replies. "I could never have imagined that you would say such things.""The years have taught me a great deal, Sensei." Tsunade goes on, as she places her cards face down on the table. "There's no point in trying to be a hero, it's a fool's game. This Itachi can go die without me.">A.How dare you>B.Stay silent>C.Other
>>42630283Huh. We've got the same Stamina as Kakashi and only half a point lower in Speed. Get our Taijutsu up a little higher and we might be able to spar with him. That would be cool.
>>42630358Sensei you sure this is Tsunade? Might be a fake Orochimaru replaced her with to stall us.
>>42630313You can, Rin had Isobu sealed inside her and would have been fine with a proper seal instead of one that was meant to break. It's just better to put it in a younger kid so their chakra can meld with the beast's better
>>42630358>C."Wow, I knew you would have a cheerful disposition, but damn, you're brighter than the sun."
>>42630358>C. Try to control your anger, keep a straight face, fail to realize that you're making the entire building gently shudder with your steady release of force through the booth
>>42630358>C.Other"Yeah, bad shit is going to happen no matter what. But it would be worse if we didn't try. Just because we all die in the end doesn't mean the time in between doesn't matter."
>>42630358>A.How dare youBitch just touched the mommy and daddy button.
>>42630359Sharingan. You can effectively count him as having an extra two points in Speed and Taijutsu thanks to anticipating attacks. Same with Saucey Broske.
>>42630358>A.How dare youShe justi nsulted our parents. Even if she's a sanin she can go fuck herself.
>>42630358>C.Other"Your life must be really terrible if you've got no-one to give it up for!"
>>42630358>C.Other"If you think my parents' lives were wasted fighting Kurama, you've missed the point of the exercise. He's sitting here, right in front of you.""You have the ability to save a good man from an early death. Don't choose to let him die."
>>42630358>C. "How can someone this stupid be a genius...anything? You become a ninja expecting your coworkers to die. It's sad, it hurts, but you just work harder. Not give up. Do we really want someone this...fragile working on Itachi?"
>>42630459Yeah, but we're probably not going to push him far enough in just a spar for him to pull that out. I just think it would be cool to fight sensei, show him how far we've come since last we saw him.
>>42630358>who did you lose to make you so sad?
>>42630358>C. Accidentally break the table with an involuntary shattershot, then tell her to go outside so you can settle this without breaking the entire tavern.
>>42630358frist of all, how dare yo u
>>42630358>C. Slam your fist on the table, smash it. "Outside. Now."
>>42630358>C.Other"Ma'am, if you're too out of practice to perform the treatment, you can just say it. It's okay, any healer would be expected to have had their skills dulled after years not using them. You don't have to act tough to hide your lack of confidence."
>>42630587Anon your drunk. Go home.
>>42630587>>42630633Goddammit, I knew Kon was lightweight. Guys, we need points in our drinking skills.
>>42630524>>42630519both of these
>>42630358>C. Press your hand against the edge of the table. Send some Impact Chakra into it in such a way that the corner of the table hits Tsunade's stomach. Much better than breaking a table.
>>42630657>>42630633Its a meme you dips!
>>42630358>>42630431This is good.
>Tfw anons can't roleplay and never stay in character
>>42630358>C. Stand up and walk away.
>>42630792What would be Kon's reaction then?
>>42630792Congratulations everyone! We got our first retard!
>>42630358>C. "So, how much did Orochimaru offer you that you're willing to let a good man die for it?"
>>42630877oh shit shots fired
>>42630877That's it, everybody, nothing else we can say. The shit has been talked and it has been spoken well.
>>42630358>>42630877DingdingdingWe have a winner, you all can go home now.
>>42630524You notice that you're unconsciously causing the table to shake with your chakra. You calm yourself just enough to give a response."How can someone this stupid be a genius...anything?" you ask in disbelief. "You become a ninja expecting your coworkers to die. It's sad, it hurts, but you just work harder. It would be worse if we didn't try. Just because we all die in the end doesn't mean the time in between doesn't matter." you turn to your teacher. "Do we really want someone this...fragile working on Itachi?""Her skill is unparalleled." the Third states. "There can be no one else."Tsunade scoffs. "You can't lecture me, kid. I've heard it all before."Meanwhile, Konohamaru has reached his limit. He jumps up and dives at Tsunade, arms flailing, stopped only by his grandfather."Don't you disrespect the Hokage!" he shouts. "It's my dream to become the Hokage, just like my grandfather, and protect the village he dedicated his life to!"At that, Tsunade freezes. She glares at her old teacher. "Damn you, Sensei. You knew exactly what you were doing, bringing this kid here!"Konohamaru points straight at Tsunade and makes a declaration. "I don't care who you are, nobody disrespect the Hokage and gets away with it!""What, you want to fight, kid?" Tsunade replies.The situation is starting to get out of hand.>A.Stop Konohamaru>B.Let them fight it out>C.Join in>D.Other
>>42630358>A. She pushed the dead parent button
>>42630934>>42630992>>42631026>>42631072>>42631082Aaaand it's not used.
>>42631082>D.Other"You're really going to fight a child? That's just stupid. Even if you win, you'll still look bad. How drunk are you?"
>>42631082>C.Join inDog pile!Piss of the bitch so we can feedback one of her good hits
>>42631082>D."No, we're fight, old lady. It wouldn't be fair for you to beat up my friend when he isn't even a ninja yet."
>>42631124My bad. Was pretty much done by the time it got all that support.
>>42631082>C.>D. "If Konohamaru's fighting, I'm in too."
>>42631142He's actually above genin level IIRC
>>42631082>D. "Wow. How much did Orochimaru offer you that you're willing to let a good man die and beat the crap out of your sensei's grandson just for kicks?"
>>42631142>>42631143Fuck, I meant to put we'll instead of we're.
>>42631082>D.Other"So which one of you is the child, here? I'm having trouble telling."
>>42631082>>A.Stop KonohamaruPoor kid's going to get pasted.
>>42631185Wait, is he a ninja already? I thought he was still in the academy and just been training with us.
>>42631082>D.Other"No, you're fighting me, you old hag"
>>42631221He is. But with Sarutobi having more free time in this universe, Konohamaru's gotten some pretty good training.
>>42631082>D. "No, Konohamaru. This one's mine. Nobody disrespects my parents like that."
>>42631221He's not a ninja officially, but he's above genin thanks to our training
>>42631082KonoHamaru, Wait til you're grown. No Tsunade you'll fight me.
>>42631244Ah, okay then. Still, my point stands.>inb4 Konohamaru becomes Hokage at some point and is glorious
>>42630877And thinking on it, this reply doesn't make sense anywayHer healing Oro wouldn't stop her from healing Itachi, and she said she wasn't going to do any healing at all anyway
>>42631082>A.Stop Konohamaru"You're too worked up to fight her.""Let me do it."
>>42631407The implication is that Orochimaru paid her to not help the Leaf.
>>42631082>A.Stop Konohamaru"Konohamaru, you want to become Hokage, you shouldn't lower yourself to fight something lower than trash."
You pull Konohamaru back. He's just going to get himself hurt."Fighting a child?" you taunt. "Maybe you've had too much to drink. Why don't you fight me, instead? You did insult my parent's sacrifice, after all.""Fine." Tsunade replies.All five of you get up and leave the tavern. Tsunade stands down the path from you and holds up her finger."One finger." she says. "That's all I'm going to use to defeat you."To the side, Tsunade's aide is freaking out. Sarutobi Sensei looks concerned, while Konohamaru looks ready to jump right in himself.>A.Throw projectiles>B.Run up and hit her>C.Blast her>D.Other
>>42631575>D.OtherBite our thumb, like we're doing the Summoning technique, but make the seals for Shattershot instead.Gauge how drunk she really is.
>>42631575>A.Throw projectilesSet her up to>C.Blast herShattershot the bitch
>>42631575>A.Throw projectilesand get ready to use substitution
>>42631603>>42631575this. plus she wont expect our bloodline
>>42631575I wonder if this would work so let's try it! >>42631603
>>42631575>D. Charge forwards, prepping some Shuriken, throw them and intentionally miss. Meanwhile, vault over her, letting the rolled up explosive seals unfurl as we wrap her around in explosive wire.>Fuck getting anywhere near a Sannin.
>>42631575>A.Throw projectilesI'd rather wait for her to attack us and use Feedback before we announce our release.
>>42631575>>42631603This is a dishonest, sneaky, and cowardly way to begin a fight.I approve wholeheartedly.
>>42631575>>42631636Seconding this. Keep the impact stuff on the backburner for now.
>>42631655>using feedback against fucking TsunadeAll kinds of fucking stupid. She has 5 strength BEFORE enhancing it with her chakra. She has an IC reputation for being absurdly strong.Just use it now, as a surprise.
>>42631603>>42631636Both. Knock her back with a sneaky Shattershot, then wrap her up in wire while she's still numb.
>>42631689We're doomed to lose this fight, anyway.She's a fucking Sannin.Feedback is pretty much the only thing we have that can hurt her.
>>42631689Besides Feedback doesnt reflect the damage, leaving you unharmedIt gives back the damage full force back to the attacker but we also feel 100% of the attack as well
Balls.We should have made a bet before we started. She'd never give up a chance to gamble.
>go get food>come back>anons decide YET AGAIN that we can never have a quest protagonist who loses his cool, and should instead just passively snipe at people like a middle school girl
>>42631743And opening with something less timid doesn't tell her anything about our release, how it works, or what we can do with it.Impact release is what we have that could conceivably have any sort of effect against Tsunade. So I say we go all out.
>>42631749I mean use Impact release now, not feedback.Same team, anon. Same team.
>>42631575>Build up impact chakra in the feet until it feels like a twig ready to snap>Rocket forwards at stupid speeds>Punch her squarely in the gut with a chakra-enhanced punch>nurse the bones that broke from the extreme tension
>>42631770We still can>>42631575>D.OtherYou're pretty cocky. How about a bet? We win and you give Sarutobi Sensei a sponge bath
>>42631689a) We aren't going to know about too much of her abilities.b) She's a fucking Sanin, if she's actually fighting us for realsies, nothing we do apart from Feedback will do anything.c) I'd take a solid hit on her as a win, even if we get knocked out.d) Showing her the strength she still has can be a motivator to stop her being a shit.
>>42631818>She punches back your hit>She crushes your fucking hand/wrist/etc due to the fucking inertia>LoL this kid is fucking stupid
>>42631863Nah, she's only using the one finger. More likely with those levels of force she'd wind up impaling us. Entirely different sort of stupid death.
>>42631845you do realize that if we counter her with feedback she'll punch a hole through our torso right?
>>42631863Because heaven forbid we act in a sub-optimal manner, even for five seconds during a fight where there is literally nothing riding on it.Then we wouldn't be winning!And everyone knows that one must win at everything!
>>42631920>implying she has no control over this>implying she actually wants to kill us
>>42631929If we pretty much get our limbs useless while motherfucking orochimaru(and possibly sasori) is close by then thats an amazingly stupid idea
>>42631969Isnt she drunk?
>>42632021>implying Tsunade can get drunk
Say, does Tsunade actually know specifically who our parents are?
>>42632093Never gave her our name, but I'd assume she would. After all Minato's pretty well known, and Kon's mom was on his team and apparently well known in her own right.
>>42632093Probably not, she's been away from the village since before we were born. Though if she was told she'd be all "Oh, your mom was one of Jiraiya's students? Not surprised she died. They all do, in the end."
>>42631603You decide to try and pull one over on her, while she might be drunk enough to fall for it.You bite your thumb as if you were making for the summoning technique, then start to make hand signs to use your release.She gets into a stance at first, but her eyes go wide as you make your hand signs. She recognizes that they aren't for summoning. She rushes forward straight at you, as you use your technique."Impact Release: Shattershot!" you fire your technique and it hits her straight on, but not before her finger hits your forehead and you go flying backwards.You're on the ground in a daze for a while, before Tsunade walks up to you. She doesn't look very injured, but her movements look stiff."I don't know what you tried to pull, kid." she spouts down at you. "But a green Chunin like you has no hope to stand up against a sannin. And I don't know how you thought this was going to convince me of anything."You get back up to your feet on your own, no injuries but a sore spot on your forehead.Konohamaru looks like he wants to take a turn himself, despite seeing what just happened to you.>A.Let's go again>B.Let Konohamaru try>C.Try to convince her somehow>D.Fine, we're done>E.Other
>>42632093She has no idea who the fuck you areShe would recognize your mother's name though
>>42632156>E. "It's not supposed to convince you of anything. This is for my parents."Let's go for that wire thing, then.
>>42632156>B.Let Konohamaru try
>>42632152>if she was told she'd be all "Oh, your mom was one of Jiraiya's students? Not surprised she died. They all do, in the end."Okay, if she does that, THEN can we actually get angry instead of just acting like a catty cunt?>>42632156>A.Let's go againOne hit. We need to get one hit in. Bitch insulted our parents.>>42632206I'd say hold off on that until we've gotten our shit handed to us a couple more times.
>>42632156>E.Other"Convince you? Nah, I just wanted to fight. I'm surprised you've managed to keep your skills after so many years inactive. What's your secret?"
>>42632156>A.Let's go again“Choosing to let one of our own die... that's not how the Leaf Village teaches its ninja to act.”"I'm willing to keep going until you remember that."
>>42632156>A.I second what this guy said.>>42632206
>>42632206... our parents would want us to throw ourselves headlong at a Sannin till she cracked our skull open?I think you mean that protecting our village honors their sacrifice, not that they'd be too thrilled about the current situation.
>>42632340>... our parents would want us to throw ourselves headlong at a Sannin till she cracked our skull open?No.That's why I kinda like it.Have us actually act like a 13 year old who's pissed off and not thinking straight.
>>42632340Actually thats a good to do right now, remeber we a kid who got pissed offNot enough to tell her to fuck off, since she didn't mention our parents specifically, but we're irked enough to punch her fucking face in.
>>42632340Why yes, that is what I mean. But unless you want to spend our remaining 30 seconds of consciousness explaining that to her, let's just go on the attack.
>>42632156>A.Let's go again"This isn't for me, now come on, you think that flick is enough to take me down? Give me your best!"Then get ready with feedback
>>42632156>>A.Let's go again"How about we have a wager on it this time?"Feedback is good. All the force in her finger pushed back on it might actually break something.If we can avoid taking it on our head, we might stand a chance.
>>42632540We could just flashbang the bitch...We have a flashbag type tag right?
>>42632540This. I don't know what tsunades stamina is but I'll bet even she can't take her own attacks.
>>42632206"It's not supposed to convince you of anything." you tell her. "This is for my parents."You pull out some shuriken and throw them as a distraction, while you vault over her with your wire ready.Tsunade catches the shuriken on her finger, but is wrapped up by the wire. Your success is short lived however, as after a moment, she just breaks right through it.As she turns to strike you in the head again, you see Konohamaru behind her, jumping into the fight. He seems to have lost his temper.>A.Try to use Feedback>B.Try to dodge>C.Tell Konohamaru to get out of here>D.Try to give Konohamaru an opening>E.Other
>>42632645>D.Try to give Konohamaru an opening
>>42632645>E.OtherChakra. Empowered. Headbutt.
>>42632645>B.Try to dodgeDodge a few attacks and then intentionally take one then>Feedback
>>42632645Wait, what about the explosive tags on the wire?>A. Try to use Feedback>D. Try to give Konohamaru an opening
>>42632645>A.Try to use FeedbackTake the hit, but make her take it as well.
>>42632645>A.Try to use Feedback
>>42632645>E.OtherPoint out that busting out of that wire used more than her finger. She loses.
>>42632684>>42632691>>42632697... are we really trying to break her finger here?
>>42632691You are not using explosives in the middle of the street. You also kept your release weaker to avoid too much collateral damage
>>42632645>a. Knock that shit right at her.
>>42632645>C.Tell Konohamaru to get out of here
>>42632731Fuck her, she dissed our dead parents and is now trying to pick fights with like, an eight year old and a thirteen year old respectively. If she can't take it, she shouldn't try to use it on a couple of kids.
>>42632739And there's our bet. "I was just trying to keep collateral down. One week, you and me, outside the city. I'll take you down." Then she makes a bet.
>>42632645>>A.Try to use FeedbackTake it somewhere other than our head if possible. Make her knock an arm aside to get at it.
>>42632731We're an angry thirteen year old right now. We're not thinking like a ninja, we're just trying to RIP AND TEAR! RIP AND TEAR HER TITS! SHE IS HUGE! THAT MEANS SHE HAS HUGE TITS!
>>42632807Shame on you. You offend the dignity of Doomguy for naught but casual titillation.
>>42632645>E. Kick her in her giant tits while she goes in to strike you.>Open yourself up to your hormonal urges when you see the effects of impact-release shockwaves on them.
Guys, can we get her with knife on a rope and channel our power through it?
>>42632152I think it'd be some delicious karma if she liked our parents, and this is how she finds out they're dead.>>42632739>kept your release weaker to avoid too much collateral damageWe need to work on developing that Beam tech.
>>42632962>if she liked our parents, and this is how she finds out they're dead.If that's the case, can we blame her for their deaths? Right to her face? Something along the lines of "Maybe if you hadn't abandoned the village like a coward, they'd still be alive."?
>>42632684>>42632691>>42632697>>42632712>>42632746>>42632751>>42632756>>42632790You get ready to use the only thing that's sure to hurt her. You make sure to block with your arm, so her hit doesn't nail you straight in the forehead again, then release your technique."Impact Release: Feedback!" you use the move as her finger strikes you and you go straight to the ground.She recoils and grabs hers her finger in pain. Meanwhile, Konohamaru tries to jump her and gets knocked to the ground for his efforts.You manage to get back up, but your arm is aching something fierce.Tsunade is still nursing her finger as she addresses Konohamaru. "This kid's a Chunin, and he's having trouble against me using one finger! You think you can do anything?"From the ground, Konohamaru shouts back at her. "Maybe I can't, but I have a move that can! I'll summon Enma, and he'll beat you!"At that, Tsunade bust out laughing. "You're kidding right? Try again in a few years, champ. As you and this other kid are, even together you both couldn't keep up with me.">A.Try to attack again>B.Tell Konohamaru to cool it>C.Say something>D.Other
>>42633122>A.Try to attack again
>>42633122>B.Tell Konohamaru to cool it"Stay the hell out of this, Konohamaru! The old hag's mine!"
>>42633122>B.Tell Konohamaru to cool it>A.Try to attack again
>>42633122>C."Funny, why would we want to keep up with a bitter, old drunk who abandoned her village and is so selfishly self-absorbed in her own self-pity that she won't save an innocent man's life?"
>>42633122Konohamaru! Together! We can summon Emma together!
>>42633122>DLet Konohamaru summon Enma
>>42633202Make it "bitter, drunk old hag" and I can work with this.I love "old hag" as an insult.Especially since women in anime always completely lose their shit at being called one.
>>42633209Enma...spellcheck. Fuck.Though emma of any choice is good too...
>>42633122>D. "Only 'cause this is a town. If I didn't have to worry about collateral, you'd be a smear by now." Remember, 13 year old filled with Chunin-level confidence and righteous anger.
>>42633209That is an interesting premise. I second this>D. Summon Enma together with Konohamaru"All your energy at once Konohomaru! We can do this together!"
>>42633122>C.Say something"You're not getting it. It's not about winning. It's about working out my aggression over how much of a bitch you are, you bitch.
>>42633122>>B.Tell Konohamaru to cool it>>A.Try to attack again
>>42633239Especially Tsunade. She really hates it. That's why she looks so young, she's got a constant transformation up to keep herself from looking so old. It only drops when she uses up all her chakra healing, which ironically makes her look even older and makes her worry over her appearance worse. It's a vicious cycle.
>>42633202I vote this. It's brutal.
>>42633122>C. "So, you gonna add another finger after I broke that one?" When she's laughing, "Wait, what's so funny?"
>>42633122>C.Say something"My parents sacrificed their lives for our village, and for me. I choose to honor that sacrifice by using my skills to serve that same goal: protect what's important to me.""I may just be a Chunin in your eyes, but at least I'm still TRYING. Which is more than I can say of you."
>>42633311>she's got a constant transformation up to keep herself from looking so old. It only drops when she uses up all her chakra healing, which ironically makes her look even older and makes her worry over her appearance worseWait, what?
>>42633369Yeah. She's like 50.
>>42633122>C. "I'm still more than you. Because even though I'm just a kid, I'm still trying, and still helping people. I'm more than you, because unlike you I have no intention of becoming an old, bitter, self-centered drunk with a mountain of debt and a gambling addiction just because someone I love dies."
>>42633369She's one of Hiruzen's students, the same age as Jiraiya. But she's really afraid of old age so she uses her jutsu to stay youthful-looking. And when it drops, it drops because she's tapped out, and being so drained of chakra makes her look worse than she would if she just let it deactivate.
>>42633379I knew she was solidly into milf status age-wise, but I just figured it was a combination of "Ninjas, son!" and the fact that nobody in anime looks middle aged, they're either youthful or fucking ancient.
>>42633122>>42633411Holy shit that's brutal...this, but prep a feedback for when she comes at us all angry.

>>42633637>You weren't explicitly told this in text, but we can handwave it and say Sarutobi told you about it some time in the past few weeksYeah, we did skip over stuff and could have easily been told that then.
>>42633637We're about to die, but it shall be a glorious death defending our ideals against a bitter old woman. While I wish we could have gotten closer with Tenten and been a great ninja of the Leaf, I'm okay with this death.
>>42633411"I'm still more than you." you tell her. "Because even though I'm just a kid, I'm still trying, and still helping people. I'm more than you, because unlike you I have no intention of becoming an old, bitter, self-centered drunk with a mountain of debt and a gambling addiction just because someone I love dies."Tsunade doesn't respond. She just turns and starts walking away."Come on, Shizune." she calls. "I don't know what I was thinking, fighting with a kid."The woman, Shizune, apologizes to Konohamaru before taking off after Tsunade."Well now what?" Konohamaru asks. "We can't just go back empty handed.""I'll keep talking to Tsunade myself." Sarutobi Sensei says. "I need to get through to her.""Well, I'm gonna do more training then!" Konohamaru announces. "What about you, bro?">A.I'll train with you>B.I'll help out with Tsunade>C.Other
>>42633710She's not gonna murder us, anon.Although I am in favor of us holding a grudge against her over dishonoring our parents' deaths, at least until and unless she does something big enough to earn a grudging respect.

>>42633950>>42633985Don't lie. You two just wanna be there to see her face when Sarutobi-sensei tells her who our parents were.
>>42634074You know what? Forget the medical jutsu and blackjack...
>>42634093Is it that obvious?
>>42634123But we need the medical jutsu otherwise Itachi is fuckedAnd we need him alive and crap...
>>42634093Hey, I'm just hoping she feels bad about it and extends an olive branch, so we can tell her to blow it out her ass.
>>42633860>>42633877>>42633890>>42633891>>42633947You agree to train with Konohamaru starting tomorrow. Sarutobi Sensei heads off on his own, while you and Konohamaru head to your hotel room."I'm gonna perfect the Summoning Jutsu, just you wait!" Konohamaru boasts as you two get ready for bed.You hear a knock at the door. Konohamaru gets up to answer it, and finds Shizune at the door."I wanted to come apologize for Lady Tsunade." she says. "She's not the type of person you think she is. She didn't used to be like that.">A.We don't care>B.What happened>C.Other
>>42634203>C. Explain quickly or leave us alone.

>>42634203>C.Other"I know that. It's just hard to sit there and listen to that kind of crap from someone who used to be so great.""I just hope Sarutobi-sensei can bring her to her senses before it's too late for Itachi."
>>42634203>C. "You know, my parents died fighting the nine-tails. I never knew them. But I know they died protecting something precious to them. It's obvious that whoever she lost, she has no respect for them, not enough to let them die for what they believe in. If she did, we wouldn't be having this conversation." Close the door, go back to bed.
>>42634291I don't really think we're that insightful
>>42634203>>C.Other"We know. Otherwise, sensei wouldn't care about her half as much as he does. So she didn't used to be. But... she is now."
>>42634203>C.Other"And how the hell does that give her the right?"
>>42634345It's the whole reason we're upset, we're not a stupid kid, and we've had all evening to be broody about it.
>>42634203>C. OtherInvite her in at least.
>>42634399No, we're upset because she called mom and dad's deaths meaningless.
>>42634465You clearly don't remember how easy it is to construct what seems like a valid argument when you spend an evening being angry. Do you even Broody?
>>42634291This.>>42634499>>42634399We don't have to be a brooding edgelord to be able to rant about our trigger.
>>42634451>>42634203Seriously, this. Shizune's not the bitch here.
>>42634291You know what, this. No kid quite calms down that fast.Unrelated note, I'd like to start practicing a beam attack tomorrow.

We can only hope he can talk some sense into her before it's too late for Itachi."You invite Shizune in, and ask what happened to Tsunade in the past.She tells you all about her brother, Nawaki, who coincidentally bares a striking resemblance to Konohamaru. About her lover Dan, and how both he and her brother dreamed of becoming Hokage. And about how they both died shortly after being gifted the necklace Tsunade wears."Ever since that happened, she's worn the necklace like a curse." Shizune goes on. "At one time, she cared more about the village and worked harder for it than anyone. But now, it's not just that she doesn't want to perform medicine, ever since that day, she's been afraid to. I know it's not right of her, but please don't hold it against her.">A.I still don't like her>B.She needs to get over herself>C.I understand>D.Other
>>42634291>not enough to let them die for what they believe inSee, this part is stupid. NOT dying is preferable, and Kon sure as fuck knows that.
>>42634740>>A.I still don't like her>B.She needs to get over herself
>>42634740>C.I understand"But I can't approve. She's letting their memory keep her from protecting what they held dear."
>>42634740>A.I still don't like her>B.She needs to get over herself>Ninja die, It comes with the job, We're all prepared to die if we have to
>>42634740How do we get her to overcome her fears in time to save Itachi?
>>42634740>B.>D. Sounds to me like she just hasn't accepted people die in our line of work. I want to feel bad, but I knew that even before I became a ninja.

>>42634399>we're not a stupid kid>>42634740>A.I still don't like her>B.She needs to get over herself"She thinks she's the only one who's been hurt? Everybody's got dead people. At least she has memories of the people she lost."
>>42634800>>42634810Wow, where did that fucking edge come from? That's absolutely not something I'd see Kon saying, even IF he was mad.
>>42634803Tell her to get it the fuck over, its been yearspeople die all the time but ya gotta move on
>>42634740>>A.I still don't like her>>B.She needs to get over herself

>>42634740>C.I understandBut>A.I still don't like her"It'll take some time to get over all that. And,">B.She needs to get over herself
>>42634870Then how do you want Kon to express being angry? Because I see it as him MAYBE fighting and in the end going to vicious backhanded remarks because we've already established that Kon's something of a charismatic fuck who knows it.
>>42634870>Our parents died for the sake of the village>we grew up admiring them because of what they did>we tell an old hag to get the fuck over the death of her loved ones>said old hag is a sannin of the leafhow is that edgy?
>>42634740>>C.I understandbut>>B.She needs to get over herself
>>42634982>>42634740Pretty much this
So, Laze. Did you ever watch that second vid I tweeted you?The one with Haku?
>>42634926By not jumping straight to the fatalistic "we're all ready to die" bullshit? Kon keeps going way out of his way to protect people, it's clear from his actions that he values life more than that.Calling out Tsunade for lacking the resolve to keep saving people? Totally fair game. For abandoning her duty? Same deal. But death shouldn't be on his mind to that degree, because I don't think it fits.
>>42635005Yeah, I saw. Funny stuff. Is Revolution basically all goofy stuff like that?
>>42634944>"ninja die, it's part of the job"That's not the same as honoring Kon's parents and their sacrifice. They didn't WANT to die, they probably weren't TRYING to die. They were just that dedicated to his life and to the lives of others.Accepting one's own death as inevitable and fighting to save people are two different concepts. One makes for an edgy 13 year old. The other does not.
>>42635045Actually, it's just some big tournament thing. Whenever you unlock enough characters, though, they do have funny little things like that you can view.Once.Also the Mecha-Naruto thing. Which I found physically painful to play.
>>42635009In my eyes, Kons deal is that death is to be expected but avoided at all cost and you should only go forth if you have a critical task in your hands
>>42635134>death is to be expectedThere you go again. Kon has done everything within his power to actively prevent death. At high risk to self, sure, but he absolutely hasn't accepted it.Saying otherwise just isn't consistent with how he's behaved.
>>42635219Just because it happens doesn't mean it has to be done quietly. It's not black and white. He'll do everything he can to help his friends, family, and home, even at the cost of his own life.
"I understand, but I still don't like her." you tell Shizune. "She needs to get over herself. It's been years, and she's not the only one who has to deal with their loved ones dying. It's tough, but we have to do what we can to protect the ones that are still here."After saying her piece, Shizune leaves you and Konohamaru to your sleep. The two of you are up bright and early to train on the outskirs of town."I'll show that old lady!" Konohamaru boasts. "Let's get summoning!">A.Practice summoning with Konohamaru>B.Insist on something else>C.Practice something else on your own>D.Other

>>42635297Sure. But after the fact it's not something to dwell on.
>>42635280>C. Practice beam attacksNeed something more directly offense.
>>42635280>A.Practice summoning with KonohamaruOffer some tips, if we can give any.
>>42635280>>D.OtherTry to improve feedback while Konohamaru is practicing summoning. We need to keep an eye on him so he doesn't go too far.
>>42635280>A.Practice summoning with Konohamaru>>42635348It literally doesn't work that way, anon. Cooperative summoning requires a massive fucking ritual. It seriously looks like something you'd summon Satan with.
>>42635358i'm not saying to dwell on , i'm saying thats how i think Kon's thought process operates.
>>42635280>A.>>42635384Now I want a Demon summoning contract.
>>42635439That exists. Summoning the Shinigami costs your soul though.
>>42635439>"Yo beelzabub, get over here some shit up for me here, you little faggot!">"Bitch you can't tell me what to do!"
>>42635475get over here and fuck* some shit uphow did i miss that?
>>42635475>"Bitch, this contract says I can!"
>It's been years! Get over it! What the fuck happened to Kon, did he lose his empathy between threads? Quality roleplaying lads
>>42635566>Quality roleplaying ladsThe sad part is so many people seem to think this qualifies as exactly that.
>>42635566No, he just completely lost his temper when Tsunade talked about sacrifice (like what his parents did) as a stupid, useless thing to do. We've all agreed that that's his 'Do Not Touch' button.
>>42635613I'm just watching this thread while also watching Watership down
>>42635566We're angry, right now. She pushed pretty much the only button we have, and pushed it hard. We're probably going to feel bad about it later, but right now we're in a pretty bad place.
>>42635652Indeed, It's his big shiny red button that says "DO NOT TOUCH YOU IDIOT!"
>>42635613Can't wait til they start trying to be witty (emphasis on trying) and delivering monologues
>>42635566>Old hag starts shit talking about how the sacrifice of people that died is useless>two of those sacrifices were our parents>thats our trigger buttonIt's IC m8
>>42635652It might've made sense before you kids metagamed and decided that we knew she had gone through something similar, if anything knowing that she had lost relatives should've put us in a position of empathy.
>>42635652>We've all agreed that that's his 'Do Not Touch' buttonFirst of all, I never fucking agreed to that. Second, just because you're upset doesn't mean you suddenly gain a completely different personality.Too many people are playing this as what they *think* a thirteen year old would be like rather than what would be consistent and reasonable for a character who's been long since established as fairly reasonable, friendly, and generally decent. Anger can most certainly manifest in forms other than petulance, and it would have been a better fit to the character.
>>42635327>>42635330>>42635332>>42635333>>42635373>>42635384>>42635439You decide to join Konohamaru in his endeavors.On his first try of the day, Konohamaru manages to summon a small monkey that crawls up to perch on his shoulder, and then speaks.""Hey kid, I'm Sarutaro." the monkey says. "Nice to meet ya."Konohamaru is ecstatic. "Oh yeah, this one can talk! I'm getting closer and closer to summoning Enma!""You want to summon gramps?" Sarutaro laughs. "A little small for that, don't you think, kid?"Konohamaru isn't discouraged, and spends the next week at practice.You yourself, manage to make some progress. Over the course of the week, you manage to summon three more new monkeys, and choose between them consciously.The new monkeys you've met are known as Mizaru, Kikazaru, and Iwazaru. They seem to be proficient in genjutsu, though you haven't found a way to get them to work well with you quite yet.After a week has passed, you and Konohamaru wake up one morning to find that Sarutobi Sensei never returned for the night, which strikes you as odd.>A.Try to go find him>B.Go back to training>C.He's probably with Tsunade, go find her>D.Other

>>42635774>A.This can't be good...
>>42635797I'm not lad, I'm sick of this happening every quest
>>42635839As the one who started all this, I agree with you. Kon's had time to calm down, think seriously about what he did, and probably regrets it. It's time for him to apologize.
>>42635842They probably don't do what people were shooting for, but it may be a vaguely similar effect.Just less BDSM involved.
>>42635872As long as she apologizes also.
>>42635774>C.He's probably with Tsunade, go find herChance to make amends.I figure once we've spoken to her in a calm state of mind, and not heard it secondhand while still angry, we'll shift from wanting to donkey punch her to trying to help her see that it's not healthy.

You find the Third passed out at a stall. Apparently he had been there all night.When you manage to wake him up, he's in bad shape. "She slipped something into my drink." Sarutobi Sensei tells you. "She may mean to betray us."Soon, Shizune finds you. "There you are!" she says, panicked.

>>42636088>>A.We have to go stop her>>C.Sarutobi Sensei needs to recoverWe need him to stand any chance, but he's in no state to help right now. Shizune is a medic. What can she do to help him?OOC, Sarutobi's not as young as Jiraiya (there's a rare sentence) so he might have more trouble fighting with his chakra control screwed.
>>42636180That always bothered me. If Tsunade refuses to practice medicine anymore, how did she teach Shizune? I can accept her managing to keep her skills by virtue of just being that good, but Shizune shouldn't know any medical techniques.
>>42636298When do you ever see Shizune doing any particularly advanced medical stuff before Tsunade gets her shit together?
>>42636380She shouldn't know anything, is my point. And she clearly knows some, because she's seen assisting in healing people after they come back to Konoha but before Tsunade could have taught her anything. I don't get it.
You know, I wish I hadn't missed the contract threadConsidering our penchant for tricks and traps and our appearance, i'm surprised no one thought of foxesNot kyuubi obviously, but surely there are foxes we could summon without nine tails>>42636130Supporting
>>42636422She knows a little. She doesn't know nearly enough.
>>42636437IIRC in that same thread Enma told us that we can have 2 different contracts so foxes are still a go
>>42636140"Either we need to stop her or help her." you say. "We can't do either from here.""Agreed." the Third adds. "We have no time to lose. I'll just recover as we go."The three of you follow Shizune to the remains of Tanzaku castle to find a crater that wasn't there before. Negotiations must have gone badly.Nearby, Shizune spots Tsunade's jacket. She has her pig Tonton sniff it, and lead you farther out of town.You all arrive just in time to interrupt a battle in progress.You all appear with the assistance of a smoke bomb, and stop Tsunade from being struck. A ways away, a man addresses the Third."It's been a long time, Sarutobi Sensei." he says.Your teacher responds. "That it has, Orochimaru."You then notice just who it was attacking Tsunade.

"I can deal with them!"Tsunade has pressure on Kabuto, but before she can finish him, he stabs his own hand and the blood splatters all over Tsunade. Her eyes go wide and she stops moving."I knew things would get bad now that the Third Hokage showed up." Kabuto says before punching Tsunade in the face, sending her flying back to Shizune, who catches her.

>>42637026As a second summon, sure.But right now I think the only way forward is summoning what we have. Sarutobi's been poisoned, Tsunade is down, Konohamaru is like eight, and we have no idea what Shizune is capable of.Summoning Enma versus taking on Orochimaru and/or Kabuto as things stand... I'd take trying for Enma personally.
>>42637166I HIGHLY doubt that we'd be able to summon enma right now. But I don't doubt that if we use our impact chakra and really push it we'll summon a badass monkey who can at least help.
>>42637236I don't think a nature transformation does anything, anon, because that's just not how the technique works. And even if we get some random monkey we can ask them to let Enma know that we REALLY need him right now.Plus we've already gotten the genjutsu monkies. It makes sense that today, in a clutch moment, would be a strong possibility of getting Enma.
>>42637282I really REALLY doubt it. The chakra involved in invoking the big boss of any summon group is massive. Naruto only pulled it off in Canon because kyubi hax.
>>42637014>D. Konohamaru, stay back.>E. "I can handle Kabuto, Sensei. He'll be in the next country when I'm done."
>>42637013>B."Come here, Glasses, I've got some tricks to show you~
>>42637344Also, we can't summon Enma because Sarutobi will have summoned Enma. He can only be in one place at a time.
>>42637406"I'll show you why it's really called Impact Release."
>>42637427>Sarutobi>the guy whose limbs aren't working right because of the poisonJust saying, when it turns out he can't we'll have to.
>>42637344If memory serves Hiruzen has the same Stamina as we do at this point.It may be difficult, but Kon could do it.
>>42637079>>42637108>>42637128https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lZp2RIBQZ4&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=30"Konohamaru, stay back!" you call. "Sensei, I can take Kabuto.""Very well." your teacher bites his thumb and makes some hand signs. "And I will fight Orochimaru! Summoning Jutsu!"At the same time, Kabuto has also performed the Summoning Jutsu. From his, are produced two giant snakes. Sarutobi Sensei however, must still be under the effects of the poison, as he only manages to summon Sarutaro."Uh oh, boss." the monkey says. "I take it you weren't looking for me?"From his perch on the snake's head Orochimaru speaks. "Our Tsunade must have done something to Sarutobi Sensei here. Perhaps she meant to sacrifice him? No matter. I will fight him. Kabuto, do with the others as you please.""Of course, Lord Orochimaru." Kabuto answers as the two giant snakes dive towards your group.>End of Chapter 21Running again tomorrowTwitter is @LazeQMSticking around
>>42637637Thanks for running. Laze. See you tomorrow.
>>42637637Thanks for running!
>>42637637Obligatory question regarding gainz: did we get dem?
>>42637736Not during this week
>>42637637Was a fun read today Laze. Hey, now that's Gaara is a goner and missed his redemption stuff, we can totes redeem Kabuto right? Right?
>>42637637Thanks for running, Laze. Was fun.
>>42637637So, do we blast him to the other side of this fuckhueg field to start, or wait on that one until he's holding Konohamaru?
>>42637769He gets redeemed in canon, so there's no reason it wouldn't be possible here
>>42637768Figured about as much.Last question, to put this issue to bed: is it possible for Kon to summon King Enma? Because it should be, but a lot of people seem to just be assuming it's not.
>>42637855It's possible but still difficult, even if you weren't in the middle of battle right nowIt's unlikely you'd be able to pull it off
So guys... how do we win this?
>>42638102We could liquify Kabuto with a super-powered impact punch. I doubt it, though.
>>42638102We blast him as he comes close, then pull the Shuriken move we were gonna use on Tsunade. But this time, we use the wire covered in explosive tags.
Obligatory Tenten post.She may get mad at us running off like this, but really she should just be glad when she finds out Orochimaru didn't manage to eat us.
>>42638840Don't worry, affectionate cuddles and ample apologies should help out.
>>42638871No cuddles yet.But we can offer to take her out to dinner. Somewhere that's slightly fancy and isn't Uncle's.
>>42638914Fuck, what restaurants are there in Konoha that are fancy?
>>42638914We could ask Tsunade about that once we decide we don't hate each other anymore. She was a teenaged girl once.
So Sage mode when?
>>42639067Will we look like Super Sayan 4?
Guys, how do we ask Tenten out on a date? where do we take her?
>>42639101Look at her dead in the eye and just ask her outIt's not that hard...
>>42639101I hope Neji tears that ass up.
>>42639132We're thirteen. We need more spaghetti.
>>42639157Writing a on montain with explosives?
>>42639001>once we decide we don't hate each other anymoreSo basically, once we sit down and talk directly to her while not hopped up on anger and adrenaline?
>>42639185"Tenten, will go out with me? - Kon" written into the side of a mountain?The greatest demolition job in history, and it's all for asking out a cute. That should get a yes from her at least.
>>42639185I was thinking a bomb thrown into the air, releasing confetting over most of the village that says, "10/10, my place 8PM this friday?"
>>42639259> releasing confetting>Not using fireworksCome on anon
>>42639291You have a point. Actually, more I think about it, the more I like the explosives thing. We take her on a walk to the place where we fought Shukaku, and off in the distance are these mountains. We take her to the top of a tree, trigger the explosives from over a mile out, and they say, "Tenten, will you be my Girlfriend?"Actually, I wanna ask Sarutaro.
>>42639350Great, instead of spagethi the shit out of it we overhype the fuck out of us asking her out.
>>42639390Yeah, might be better for a marriage proposal further down the line.Confetti might be good for asking her out, though.
>>42639444But to do all this shit we gotta get confirmation that she's into KonBecause right now we're only friends and just that
>>42639499Let's ask Neji. "So, uhm...Tenten...I hear you two are friends. Does she, uh...say anything about me?" Try to be smooth, fail miserably.
>>42639545You know that time in the forest is the only time they've met since Neji graduated
>>42639572Wow that's shittyGreat for us tho
>>42639572We'll talk to Shino then. Or Hinata. It'd actually be a good excuse to talk to Hinata and see how the mark is changing her.
>>42639614You are now realizing that Hinata has not had a single line of dialogue in the entire quest so far
>>42639715Well thats not that was that one time she looked at us(i think) and look away...holy shit hinata didnt say a single fucking thing even in her match
>>42639715...oh my...I wonder how different she is without naruto.
>>42639804Easy. She's fixated on us instead.And we never noticed her.And we're about to ask her if she thinks Tenten is into us.
>>42639804That's actually a really good questionSince naruto does not exist in this universe
>>42639715THIS IS THE SADDEST. POSSIBLE. THING.
>>42639832that is sad...still going for 10/10
>>42639614>>42639804>>42639832>>42639851>tfw she's crushing on kon in this universe>tfw we break her heart by asking her this>yfw it causes her to give in to the curse mark
>>42639832Oh wow.I mean, I felt bad for Hinata before.But god damn.I...I almost want her instead...
>>42639879Thats not why orochi bitch gave her the mark right Laze?It's because orochi is Chaotic Stupid right?
Hinata isn't interested in you, guys>>42639914Oro just likes marking kids with keks, and Hinata went out of her way to attack him in the FoD, so he wanted to see what would happen
>>42639958>Hinata went out of her way to attack him in the FoD, so he wanted to see what would happenOkay 2 thingsWhy she ever do that? Isn't byakugan able to tell the difference in chakra to tell the difference between her and Orochimaru's power level or somethingWas orochimaru ever been this randumb in the series? i seriously can't remember
>>42639958>he wanted to see what would happenI am convinced this is the main reason why Orochimaru does anything.
>>42639958So who is she interested in then?
>>42640020So Orochimaru is the Naruto's version of Aizen?
>>42639804She hates her own weakness and has no role models.She likely has severe family issues and now is cursed to be drawn to orochimaru to gain power.When she finally snaps and gives in to seeking power, abandoning morals and bonds, she will be dangerous indeed. Imagine a super emo hyuga who specs into heavy ninjutsu and even surpasses what she normally did in canon regarding her own bloodline mastery.
>>42640015That's the big question, now isn't it?Oro has always just done whatever he wants>>42640042I told you guys before, it's a secret
>>42639832I Wish.Hinata is probably focused on being stronger than Neji instead of fixating on anyone
>>42640074It's fuken Sai isn't it?
Laze, would you consider writing out what we missed during the invasion that would have been seen in the show and not a secret, but you never specified. Like jiraya's fight, or hinata getting cursed.
>>42640102You should have asked me that before the thread was about to fall offRemind me tomorrow
>>42640074 Does she pine for the determined and kind rock lee? Or is the allure of her own bloodline too strong? Captcha please stop asking me to pick turtle knob
