>This is a quest taking place in an alternate version of the Naruto world during the same time period as the story, with a few notable differences. You will be playing as Kon Karagowa, a Leaf Chunin. Your character is defined by your choices, so write-ins are always encouraged.

Hell Yeah, it's Kon time!We really need to have a power boosting time skip if we don't want Sasuke to become way more powerful than us.
>>43073843O ye this Hype
>>43073884Going by stats alone he already is. Sasuke is Kon's superior or equal in every stat except Stamina, and he's not far behind in that. Kon just seems to be better at using what he has, bridges the gap.
"I see." Itachi says. "Before we get too far into your report I'd like to hear the others, assuming there are no similar issues. Asuma, why don't you go first?""Of course." Asuma responds. "We met both of the Cloud's Jinchuuriki, Yugito Nii and Killer Bee. It seems that the village treated them both very well, and Killer Bee had apparently somehow even made friends with his tailed beast. Though how he managed to do so seems to be a closely guarded secret. Anyway, the Cloud said that they will take any measures necessary to keep Akatsuki from abducting their Jinchuuriki. I think we can rely on their cooperation in the future.""That's good. Excellent job, Asuma." the Hokage replies. "You and your team can put in a more nuanced written report later with the specifics. Guy, how were things on your end?""Slightly less successful than Asuma, I'm afraid." Guy answers. "All we really managed to do was get the Stone's two Jinchuuriki, Roshi and Han, to stay together and watch each other's backs. The higher ups are all too stubborn to concede any further towards their protection. Though I must say, Kon here may be the key to our inter-village relations with the Stone. He was given quite a warm welcome.""As I suspected." the Sixth notes. "Your lineage did indeed prove useful on this mission. Is there anything in particular you wanted to add before we move on, Kon?">A.Nothing>B.There is something
>>43074037>>B.There is somethingI managed to strike a friendship with the granddaughter of the Tsuchikage. We might use that in the future for contacts, besides my family.
>>43074037>B.There is somethingthey were trying overly hard to be welcoming to me
>>43074037>B.There is somethingThe Stone Ninjas need to be more subtle with their attempts at recruitment
>>43074037>B. "Konohamaru managed to learn that the Four-tailed beast is a monkey, and implied that it once spent time on (mountain place). It implies that the tailed beast was once a summonable creature for those with the appropriate contract, which in turn implies that other tailed beasts may be summonable."
>>43074037>B.There is something"I'm not sure if this will actually be useful, but Roshi claimed that the Four-Tailed Monkey associated in the past with the monkey summons that I and Konohamaru are contracted with. I don't know if it would work, but if he's been to Mount Kakazan before then it could be possible to send him there again if things get really bad, keep him out of Akatsuki's reach that way."
>>43074037>A.NothingCan't think of anything that happened that's actually worth mentioning. Only one of Sai's puns.>>43073884Technically there hasn't been a point in this quest where Sasuke wasn't better than us in every imaginable way, except maybe the snow country and against Kakuzu.
The Kages grand daughter has taken a shine to me, if we are able to talk to her she may mention something to her grandfather which may sway him.Otherwise I suspect that there was more going on there than meets the eye
I was thinking, we really could use an inside man on the Akatsuki. Like Itachi was implied to be giving some info for Jiraiya on the manga, if i remember well (Jiraiya said he had an inside source on the Akatsuki, or something like that)
>>43074037>B. Yeah the tsuchikages daughter wants my dick.
>>43074193>Tobi is a good boy!
>>43074115>Technically there hasn't been a point in this quest where Sasuke wasn't better than us in every imaginable way, except maybe the snow country and against Kakuzu.And yet he believes himself to be far weaker than Kon, and doesn't show nearly the level of performance that his theoretical strength should allow for. Kid needs to boost his self confidence and realize that the power was inside him all along. Hopefully Jiraiya will be able to help him with that.
>>43074236Well that was his problem in the original series too. He was always better than Naruto, but he only saw Naruto's improvement as being better than his, despite the fact they were fairly even.
>>43074206What if in this reality, Tobi is Kon
"Konohamaru discovered that the four tailed beast is a monkey, and spent time with the monkey summons that Konohamaru are contracted to, on the Mountain of Fruits and Flowers." you say. "That may have some interesting implications. Also, the Stone seemed a bit too friendly to me. Like they were trying to recruit me. Even the Tsuchikage's granddaughter seemed overly friendly.""As for the four tailed beast, while it is interesting to know, I dubt it will be of any use to us so long as he is sealed in his Jinchuuriki." the Sixth goes on. "We'll just keep it in mind for later. Regarding your treatment, it may be to our advantage. If they are so eager to get on your good side, you may be able to convince the Stone of making concessions that they wouldn't otherwise. Something to think about. Kurenai?""Right. First off, the Village Hidden in the Mist doesn't seem very committed to the safety of the Jinchuuriki." Kurenai starts. "They don't actually have any in their possession right now, and merely helped us track down the Jinchuuriki of the six tailed beast. Said Jinchuuriki, Utakata, was also uncooperative. We tried to at least make conversation, but he kept fleeing. While in pursuit, we ran into the Akatsuki. One of them had already made off with the Jinchuuriki, but he had some method of flight, and we were unable to pursue. That left us against Kisame Hoshigaki, famed Monster Swordsman of the Hidden Mist. His skill alone made him formidable, but his sword devoured chakra. None of us could mount an effective offense against him. Eventually I made the call and had Tenten and I evacuate the others. We returned here for recovery, as the Mist seemed uninterested in taking any further countermeasures against the Akatsuki.""I see." the Hokage thinks to himself. "That is a bit unsettling. I'm not sure exactly how we might garner the Mist's cooperation. Thank you for the reports, everyone. You're dismissed for now.">A.Talk to somebody here>B.Go somewhere>C.Other
>>43074483>A.Talk to somebody hereTenten"How you're holding up?"
>>43074483>B.Go somewhere Let's just wander aimlessly, I'm sure something exciting will happen.
>>43074483>A. Talk to Tenten, see how she's doing. She might be taking her loss a little hard.
>>43074483>B.Go somewhereThe archives, pick up copies of the dossiers on all known Akatsuki members and study them for the next time we encounter them.
>>43074483>A.Talk to somebody hereLet's talk to 10/10
>>43074559I agree bring tenten with us to, to help and to chat with.
>>43074533>>43074553>>43074613>>43074615I know you guys are waifuing Ten-ten, but you've got to let her be alone sometimes so she can actually improve herself. She hasn't seemed to be on a single successful mission yet, and seeing us be awesome probably isn't going to help her self-esteem.
>>43074635Her team just got stomped, we wouldn't even be friends if we didn't quick stop and say, "Hey, you okay?"
That Kurotsuchi girl was pretty cute.
How close are we to summoning Enma on our own?Or getting Konohamaru to the same level as quickly as possible?
>>43074663Her team always gets stomped. It's becoming a running thing now, and she needs to work out how to get over it without relying on us. Every-time you comfort her, she becomes a bit more reliant on Kon, and eventually that's going to get her killed.
>>43074533>>43074553>>43074613As everyone leaves the Hokage's office, you approach Tenten."Hey." you greet her. "How are you holding up?""Me? I'm fine." Tenten replies. "It's the others I'm worried about. Shino got the worst of it, he's in pretty bad shape. Haku got a ton of chakra drained from him too. I mostly stayed back and ran support, but nothing was getting through to that guy. You think we could've had someone from the Mist there as well, but they just saddled us with this dweeb named Chojuro who couldn't stop stumbling over his words every time he opened his mouth. He led us to Utakata, then left us to chase him by ourselves when he ran off. Anyway, it sounds like you had a much better time.">A.Tell her about your mission>B.Tell her about meeting your family>C.Ask how the others are doing>D.Leave and go somewhere>E.Other
>>43074824>>B.Tell her about meeting your family
>>43074824>C.Ask how the others are doing
>>43074824>E. Seriously, what is up with the Mist Village?
>>43074757We've done it already. We just don't have quite enough chakra to be able to do it reliably in combat.
>>43074824>C.Ask how the others are doing>E.OtherEat at Uncle's with 10/10>B.Tell her about meeting your family
>>43074824>D.Leave and go somewhereMeet up with Uncle, tell him we met our other Uncle.
>>43074824>E.Other"Ten years on and you'd still think we were at war.""You wanna go do something? Take your mind off Akatsuki and the other villages for a while?'
>>43074824>E.OtherDidn't Fuu go with team Kurenai? what happened to her?
>>43074939No, I don't think so. Firstly she isn't a leaf Ninja, secondly she ia probably in Taki now able to make friends due to being no longer being a jinchuuriki.
>>43075045>"There are none. We've accounted for that." Itachi answers. "Kiba is going with Asuma's team, and I've made arrangements for the Waterfall Jinchuuriki to join Kurenai's team on this mission. The numbers are all even."From #31
>>43074790I don't think you have a clue what you're talking about. 10/10 is very competent she has only beeb on a couple missions with Kon, so I fail to see how she is relying on us at all other than as a fwllow leaf ninja and friend. This recent mission was just bad luck, They ran into Diedara and Kisame, most ninja would have difficulty managing yo fight either of them and not lose people, the fact that they were able to get away and keep everyone alive speaks highly of them.
>>43075092Ah well, they probably went their separate ways after the mission was over.
>>43074859>>43074888>>43075062"I got to meet my dad's family while I was there." you tell her. "They're all pretty fun. Turns out they like explosions just as much as I do. Considering my dad was cast out from the clan, I got way better of a reception then I expected. They pretty much treated me like one of their own. They even invited me back any time.""I glad somebody had a good time, at least." Tenten sighs."You want to head to my uncle's to eat?" you ask. "We could talk over dinner.""Sorry Kon, but I have to head to the hospital." Tenten responds. "I dropped my teammates off when we got here, but I haven't seen them since. You're welcome to join me if you want to check on them too.">A.Sure>B.No, I need to see someone else>C.No, I'm going to head home>D.Other
I think it'd be the coolest shit if Tenten friendzoned us.
>>43075230>A.SureIt's polite, and half the reason Haku's running missions for the Leaf is because we forced him to survive the Wave mission.
>>43075230>A. sure!We should pick up something special for each of them. A get well gift!
>>43075230>A.SureGotta check Snow boy(girl)
>>43075282Whilst that would be hilarious, it would just mean everyone would jump after Kurotsuchi, who actually wants our D (to get our Kekkei Genkai for her village, but still.)
>>43075381Not so bad, she seemed nice. Even if that relationship is based on her duty, duty makes a stable relationship that can bloom into something more. At least, that's what those Game of Thrones books kept hammering into my head.
>>43075282tfw once 10/10 rejects us we can't go after Fuu because she's going to end up with shino
>>43075381I would actually laugh if we ended up with no one and Itachi would the only Hokage that fucked up getting a new Clan based on a Bloodline for the leaf
>>43075381Kurotsuchi's outfit is better and she's the more powerful of the two, for sure. But Tenten looks closer to the one True waifu in the franchise.
>>43075426Ha, I've been looking for that reaction face for some time now. Well, I think that Fuu bit is for the best, she didn't have much besides being quirky and dead.
Hmm If Deidara is teamed up with Kisame, who is Naruto teamed up with Akatsuki?
>>43075457I'll be honest, I don't actaully know anything about naruto, I stopped watching it somewhere after the chuunin exams, I just like her desin
>>43075476My guess?ZetsuMaybe Hinata
>>43075381I'd prefer her over what has become a joke character.
>>43075493wasnt pain always with konan?
>>43075508Yeah, being friends with someone isn't so bad unless they're interested in you romantically. Then you gotta reject them while committing seppuku.
Has Kon worked with a staff yet?Mite be good to ask Tenten for some personal...staff time.
>>43075493Can't really imagine him not being partnered with Konan.>>43075502Hinata is possible, but unlikely. She's never actually going to be strong enough to be considered a proper Akatsuki member especially if she's reliant on her curse seal. Guess it's probably Zetsu.
>>43075518I can barely remember any people from Akatsuki, let alone their partners. My apologies.>>43075537quit asking a girl how to work the pole
>>43075508What joke character?
>>43075245>>43075253>>43075266>>43075281>>43075283>>43075293>>43075348"Sure." you respond. "I should bring them something too."On the way to the hospital, you take a detour to your uncle's restaurant and pick up some fresh gyoza to go. It's not much, but they'll probably appreciate something other than hospital food.When you arrive at the hospital, you make your way to Shino's room. Inside, you find more people than you expected. Kiba, Choji, Shikamaru, and Ino are here. Haku is also here, leaning on Ino's shoulder."Are you sure you should be up, Haku?" Tenten asks."I'm fine." Haku insists. "I've already mostly recovered."Next to Shino's bed, you see Fuu. She has quite a few bandages, but she looks alright for the most part."Hey, other friends!" Fuu smiles and waves at you. "You'll never guess what happened! So Shino was so worried that shark guy's sword could eat the tailed beast's chakra from me and I would die again, that he protected me and got hurt himself! Someone actually did that for me! Thank you so much, Shino! You've got to be my best friend!""Uh, you're welcome." Shino mutters.>A.Talk to someone>B.Offer food>C.Other
Maybe we should go train and do that research known akatski thing
>>43075558...but she used one against our knife on a rope lesson.I just wanna see Impact on other weapons in general.
>>43075578B. Offer FoodOOC, Shino, oh my ~
>>43075578>A.Talk to someoneShino. Tease him relentlessly about him and Fuu sitting in a tree.
>>43075381I actually think that Kurotsuchi > TenTen. Can't friends end up being... friends? But since most people want TenTen, i think we have more chances of ending with her. Which is cool, anyway. But my biggest concern here is: where is that guy who wanted us to attack/betray Itachi and go nukenin? He hasn't said anything about how dangerous Itachi is yet. Maybe he is dead.
>>43075578>>A.Talk to someoneShinooffer to be a wingman
>>43075578>B.Offer foodGuess you guys must be sick of the stuff in the hospital
>>43075595it's a matter of principole, anon
>>43075578>Offer food.>Give Choji's his first>So was the game plan after everyone recovers? Special training with one another?
>>43075578>B.Offer food"Never pinned Shino as the romantic type.""Some gyoza, on the house for the lucky couple."
>>43075634Sai get out of here!
>>43075607>Can't friends end up being... friends?Well, that worked with Naruto and Sakura.
Offer food, then take shikamaru aside ask if he wants to help us research the akatski, if anyone would help it's him. We can't keep letting this happen
>>43075578>>43075604Seconding. heheSoo, guys, do you think we could talk to Itachi about the possibility of getting advanced training? Or training to hunt nukenins so we'll be more prepared against the Akatsuki members? Maybe training/joining the ANBU or something, i don't know.
>>43075661For a given definition of "worked"
>>43075676Yeah, it was pretty hilarious
>>43075661And the rage of their shippers was hilarious.
>>43075670We should join anbu
>>43075696>WasNigga i can still taste the salt of their fucking assblastednessIt never ends this shit, let me fucking tell you...
>>43075670This could be cool. A year with ANBU to prove we're good enough to be Jounin, and with all the inevitable experience it should make us a stronger ninja. Plus it means everyone else can grow skill off-screen. I mean Kakashi probably hasn't awoken his funky Sharingan yet because he's too busy doing pleb missions with us.
>>43075749He was canonically doing pleb missions over the time skip, plus he already has the Mangekyo Sharingan, he just doesn't know it/know how to use it.
>>43075749If I remember right he's had it since he killed Rin, it's just that he doesn't have the chakra capacity to support so it remains inactive the whole time. I'm not even sure he knows he has it.
Is Fuu Shino's queen now?
>>43075710Too distinctive. Everybody would know exactly who's behind the mask.
>>43075770>>43075779Well maybe awoken is the wrong term, but he certainly didn't learn to use it till the time-skip. And Soloing missions is a lot simpler than having to look after Captain Explosion and Dog-boy, and probably means more down-time to train.
>>43075710I would be down for joining ANBU, would give us an excuse to walk around wearing a Monkey Mask that's actually our monkey pal in his transformation getting a good look at everyone we meet.
>>43075731The Hall of Anal Devastation is still alive, getting bigger and bigger with their tears and butthurtness.>>43075749>>43075710I agree. Joining the ANBU would give Kon field experience in a way common missions would never give. We'd learn with actual specialists on hunting nukenins.And c'mon, Itachi and Kakashi, two of the biggest badasses on the original series were ANBU at some point of their lifes. ANBU woul be really good for Kon.
Y'know, I don't really see us ending up with anybody. Like, 90% of romance is dialogue. And everytime we say something, people go, "yeah, okay" With a foundation like that, any romance we pursue would feel flat. Maybe we should just marry our job?
>>43075871I think it's just that Laze doesn't really go in for dialogue.
>>43075661Wait, what? WHAT?! I NEVER WATCHED THAT FAR WHAT THE FUCK?
>>43075902Yup, which means it's just gonna be us and our bombs and maybe passing down the Kekkai Genkai to more homemade tags...
>>43075902You could say he's pretty lazy at dialogue.
>>43075905Naruto and Sakura are just friends. Naruto is with Hinata and Sakura is with Sasuke. But the NaruSaku fandom was so upset about that. It's kind of funny, in a sad way.
>>43075960You could say that.
>>43075578>TFW realized Fuu is like StarfireI dont know how to process thisC.OtherSo how are you doing now the tail beast is gone
>>43075980You know, I always figured Sakura and Sasuke really deserved eachother.
>>43076002They're the worst female and male characters in the series, so yeah. They really did.
>>43075602>>43075632>>43075640>>43075641"Seems like you're making some good progress, Shino." you grin. "I brought some gyoza for you guys. You're all welcome to have some, as long as you get to it before Choji."Everybody takes a few and munches on them before Kiba speaks up."Speaking of which, Choji fell hard for this girl in the Cloud." he nudges Choji's shoulder. "Too bad he just couldn't speak up. Come on buddy, I can help you out. I've got a girlfriend, you know. Just listen to your senpai.""Stop it, Kiba!" Choji whines. "I don't need you making fun of me."It seems Shino's injuries are serious, and he'll be hospitalized for a while longer. Haku was just drained of chakra, so he should be up and about again soon. Fuu apparently should be good to return home in the next few days, but she says she's going to see how long they will let her stick around.Tenten leaves after a while, citing paperwork to be done. Shikamaru leaves to do the same. Luckily, Sai volunteered to do the paperwork for your group, so you are home free.Everyone else just decides to hang out in the room for a while, chatting it up.>A.Talk to somebody>B.Head home>C.Go somewhere else>D.Other
>>43076047>>A.Talk to somebodyAnd how did you get your girlfriend Kiba? Hmmm? Actually open an eye for that.
>>43076047>>B.Head hometired as fuck
>>43076047>>A.Talk to somebodyItachi. Let's try the ANBU way for some time.
>>43076047>B.Head homeLet's tell our uncle about our family, I'm sure he'll be happy to hear we had a nice relaxing mission.
>>43076047>D.Other"So does Tenten just not realize I like her, or what?"
>>43076047>"Seems like you're making some good progress, Shino." you grin.>"yeah, okay"
>>43076093this, then we go off and do some more training
>>43076047>A.Talk to somebodySo who's the madwoman that's dating with ya?
>>43076131We've met her.
>>43076047>A.Talk to Itachi about joining ANBUthen>B.Head home and tell our uncle the news about our family (And that he should totally open a restaurant in Iwa and start a franchise)
>>43076093Do you really want Ino to tell you the truth? In-front of all your friends? I mean that'll be super embarrassing when she says "Fuck no Kon, you're a creepy stalker"
>>43076093Time u to get girl advice from our friends
>>43076047>>A.Talk to somebodyFuu
>>43076047>>43076177this tbhMaybe not tell him to straight up open a show in Stone, but do tell him about meeting our dad's family.
>>43076093'You got friendzoned hard Kon, sorry bro. Well that our the QM doesn't want to write about that kind of stuff and ignores it. Could be either or really."
> Turns out TenTen started dating Neji while we were at the Snow Country
>>43076047>>D. Tease ShinoThen>>B. Head home
>>43076047>>43076093This one>>43076195Id rather we know if that's the case than keep fighting a losing battle
>>43076047This>>43076200Want to know how is she coping and her ability
>>43076202>Uncle meets dad's family> They join the business> Our Explosive Curry becomes the most famous dish in the world> Our uncle gets richer than us
>>43076246That IS kind of a fair point.Just get it all out there already or nothing will ever happen.
>>43076246You've already lost the battle because it's fairly clear that Laze doesn't want to write any romance, otherwise something would have happened already.
>>43076332Seems that way.
>>43076332Plenty of bromance tho.
>>43076093After Tenten leaves, you ask a question out loud, to no one in particular."So does Tenten just not realize I like her, or what?"Everyone stops talking and looks at you. Ino's sigh breaks the silence. She hands Haku off to Choji and walks over to you, speaking quiet enough so no one else can hear."Nice tact there, Kon." she jokes. "Look, it's not you. Trust me. Tenten's interest in guys seems to have just completely dropped off these past couple of years. I thought it was weird too, but I think she's just getting really into her training. If you really want to talk to her about it, you can. I don't think she dislikes you, so don't be like that."After getting Ino's advice, you decide to head home. You arrive to yet another delicious feast set out by your uncle."Good to have you back, Kon." he laughs. "Eat up! I'm sure you're dying to tell me about your trip, huh?">What do you tell your uncle?
>>43076246>>43076332>>43076311Alternatively, you could just be going too fast with trying to date Tenten.
>>43076507Ino is based
>>43076518>two years>too fastI just want SOMETHING to happen on that front.
>>43076507So I guess nothing short of straight out confession works on Tenten.
>>43076574Ino confirmed for wingman material. Or maybe we should wingman Ino? Either way, we must repay this kindness.
>>43076627We already wingman'd her by bringing haku
>>43076507How do I get a girl to realize I like her?
>>43076507>What do you tell your uncle?Family and the reception you got.Also looks like nothing is going to happen on 10/10 front in quite a while. We should focus on keeping the Jinchuunki alive.
>>43076507"Well, I met my other uncle for one thing. They were way more friendly than I'd imagined. So was the Tsuchikage's granddaughter, for that matter.""Apparently Itachi thinks I could really help relations between our villages."
>>43076507That we met the other side of the family, that they actually seem pretty nice even if it probably was on some level political, and that despite that we have no intent of leaving so don't go feeling worried. Oh, and we found out we're strong enough to block an attack from a jinchuriki, so we're feeling kind of badass right now.
>>43076507>Ask uncle for girl advice after we tell him a redacted version of the mission.>Think they'll let us set a shop up in their village? Double the profits and maybe bring more family into the business.
>challenge tenten to spar at a secluded place with a decent view>set up romantic picnic instead>surprise surprise
Well, i say we go for Kurotsuchi now. At least she wants us. >>43076507We tell him about our family and that he should meet them; (I really want that franchise)
>>43076734I kinda like the idea, but what if she gets mad because she just wanted to train
>>43076734>>43076730I don't think you guys understand subtlety, Laze basically just said he's not doing romance. At least with tenten, but give up.
>>43076777>If you really want to talk to her about it, you can. I don't think she dislikes you, so don't be like thatI didn't quite get that read.
>>43076769Easy, then we tell her to fight us, and if we win she has to sit down and enjoy the picnic, if she wins she can decide on a condition for us.
>>43076769I'm with this one. If we want to get her on a date, we need to get her to a point where she's satisfied with her training so she doesn't get mad at us for wasting her time.
so can we talk to kakashi or the Hokage about maybe joining anbu?
>>43076507Laze be honest. Do you want these guys to cool with it the 10/10 stuff and romance in general in your quest? Its understandable if you do, not everybody is comfortable writing stuff like that.
>>43076892First, ANBU is by invitation of the Kage only. Second, we'd be dead fucking obvious. There's no hiding our identity.
>>43076507>"So...I met up with my father's side of the family. Fun people, but I'm holding judgement until I try their cooking. You've set a pretty high standard in that regard."
>>43076953We had dinner with them.
>>43076672>>43076693>>43076702"Well, I met my other uncle." you say between bites. "My father's side of the family is a lot friendlier than I expected, even though it may have been a bit for politics. Either way, the Hokage said I could really help the relations between our villages. Maybe you could open up another restaurant there?"Your uncle laughs at your remark. "I might just look into it. Sounds like you had a great time. No unexpected fights this time?""Well, we were attacked once by the guy we were supposed to talk to." you admit. "The guy was pretty strong, but I was able to block his attack entirely, so I'm feeling pretty good right now.""Is that so?" your uncle laughs again. "You're getting pretty tough now, aren't you? Soon enough, you'll be an elite ninja! I just know it."You and your uncle talk for a while longer, then you head up to bed and sleep. In the morning you have a summons from the Hokage, which strikes you as odd. Something this urgent shouldn't happen this soon after a mission.You rush down to the Hokage's office to find Itachi sitting in his chair."Thank you for coming here so quickly, Kon." the Hokage says. "We may have to send out another team already. It seems the three tailed beast has revived. If we leave it be, Akatsuki will surely retrieve it. Normally this would be the Mist's problem, but in light of recent events, I fear we may have to take this matter into our own hands.">A.I'll help>B.I think we need to cooperate with the Mist on this>C.What do you plan to do?>D.Other

>>43077067>C.What do you plan to do?Mist has been profoundly unhelpful so far. Maybe we can have our own Jinchuuriki and not totally fuck it up like Naruto this time.
>>43077067>A.I'll help>C.What do you plan to do?Way I see it, Mist has proven their lack of concern for the state of their Tailed Beasts. Even if we could get help from them, I'm not sure they even deserve a say in what happens to the Three Tails.

>>43077199Well, that doesn't really start until after the timeskip, anyway.
>>43077148Laze, I'd really recommend working on your character interactions. A large part of what makes Naruto an interesting world is the characters, because despite how sueish and poorly utilized they were in the series, a lot of them had a shitton of potential.
>>43077199I got it!>Impact Release:Overcharge>Takes feedback energy and unlocks our chakras>Blue lightning instead of blue sweat

"I was going to send a team with you, Kakashi, and a few other ninja over there to fight the beast, then have the sealing team seal it. If you don't want to be part of this though, I understand. You just came back from a mission, so you can sit this one out if you're so inclined.

>>43077232>>43077344I know, I always try not to assume too much about how you guys want Kon to be, but it always ends up just looking like he gets ignored or is boring or something cause I never have much interaction with himI know it's an issue, but I still don't know what to do about it, cause I just hate putting words in your guy's mouths
>>43077413>A.I'll fight the tailed beast for you>C.Who will be the vessel>D.Suggest someone to bringI'd like Neji, if he's available. Assuming he isn't already on the team. Dude's proven himself to be fast enough to dodge point-blank attacks from a Tailed Beast. An Aburame or Nara would also be useful, in case Akatsuki shows up. There aren't many ways to defend against their techniques, they'd be great for deterring them.
>>43077507Wow Laze you're both a really nice guy and quite a laze manYou're more like Sans than Shika really
>>43077482In canon, Rin was a teenager when she became Three-tails' host.
>>43077543I'm half expecting there to be another wham moment when we ask Itachi who is going to be the host and he says something like "The former host, Norita Rin". Cue credits!
>>43077507>I know it's an issue, but I still don't know what to do about it, cause I just hate putting words in your guy's mouths I don't mind if you take some liberties man, it helps flesh out the character since most of the time we are picking from 3 sentences.You know what helps a fuck ton I've noticed in quests is including the main characters internal thoughts, especially on how they came to the choice the players made.For instance>>43077413>As much as you want volunteer immediately to help out the Mist, it might be better to see what the Lord Hokage has in mind first. Don't want to go stepping on anyone's toes after all.>"What do you plan to do, Lord Hokage?" you ask.Like that.
>>43077482Just gonna say, Isobu uses shockwaves too. He might actually share our release.
>>43077507I'd suggest giving vague options for dialogue choices, and then elaborating from there, taking decent bits from any in depth suggestions people offer. That way you'll be able to give Kon more of a personality. >>43077595This guy knows what's up. Honestly, the dialogue you do have is pretty damn good, at least it's not bad by any means.
Inb4 Sasuke is the new host
>>430776055 words come to mind High Pressure Water Dragon jutsu
>>43077637That actually sounds like what Crusty did in the begining of HMQAnd that quest is fucking awesome so theres that option
>>43077732Yup and Crusty is one the best writers I've seen in questing.
>>43077507Honestly, you should try to work on it even if it means "putting words in our mouths." Longer conversations would be good, if only because about half the characters come across as rude assholes for how quickly they shut down any attempt to talk to them after a few sentences.
>>43077438>>43077441>>43077448>>43077452>>43077461>>43077464>>43077470>>43077482>>43077511The fact that Itachi has put this much trust in you is quite a confidence booster. It wouldn't do to back down now."I'll fight the tailed beast for you." you answer. "I'd recommend bringing Neji if he's not already on the team, he did well against Shukaku just like I did.""I believe I can get him free." the Sixth replies. "The two of you fighting another tailed beast together does sound appropriate. Is there anything else?"Next you ask the most important question. "Who is going to be the vessel, Lord Hokage?"Itachi sighs. "This was the hardest part. The benefits of a Jinchuuriki staying with their tailed beast from as early in life as possible are too great to ignore. Sealing it in an adult or even a teenager can be catastrophic to their potential. With that in mind, I will most likely go with my decision of the most recently born child to one of our high ranking ninja, a boy of two months named Taiyaki Mitarashi. However, I have not been given a second opinion. Do you think that choice is appropriate, Kon? Would you rather see someone else bear the burden?">A.No, that's what I would do>B.I think you should seal it in someone else>C.I don't think I'm qualified to give my opinion on this, Lord Hokage>D.Other
>>43077855>A.No, that's what I would do"It's a messed up situation sir, but it doesn't seem like we have many options."
>>43077855>C.I don't think I'm qualified to give my opinion on this, Lord HokageAll I can say is we need to treat him like a normal kid, and MUCH better than Naruto.
>>43077855>D. I don't know anyone that young, but I do agree that it might be best to choose someone who is only just starting out their life. However, we should take care to avoid the mistreatment of these individuals. It has caused animosity before.
>>43077855>D.Other"Son of a high ranking ninja...name is "Mitarashi"...HOLY SHIT ANKO REPRODUCED?!"
>>43077855>>B.I think you should seal it in someone elseAkatsuki are out there and it makes more sense to have someone who's at least semi capable of fighting from the start.
>>43077855>D.OtherI volunteer, even if i know the risk
>>43077855Anko had a kid?!>>A.No, that's what I would do"It the best choice in a long list of bad options."
>>43077855>>D.OtherI personally don't particularly care who you seal it in, I only care about this. The village takes care of this child. We welcome, comfort and support them. It doesn't have to be coddling but they must feel that they have a place here. However you think is the best way to go about it than do so. Putting it into a teenager will mean there will already be friends and family for them, putting it into a child will mean the village will always know them as the vessel and then it's up to you to make sure they're treated well.
>>43077855>C.I don't think I'm qualified to give my opinion on this, Lord HokageTelling you to change someone's life isn't something I'm really capable of doing, but it would be better to give it to someone who already understands the what's going onI would offer myself as vessel but I think you would reject, still, the offer is there nonetheless.
>>43077855>>C.I don't think I'm qualified to give my opinion on this, Lord HokageBut if I have to say anything, it would be this: Don't treat the kid like a monster or weapon."
>>43077855>D.Other"Only problem is the Akatsuki will literally be hunting a baby. Is it worth the risk in order to find someone who might be better capable of defending themselves?It's a hard decision, and knowing which is the right path is difficult."
>>43077855>>B.I think you should seal it in someone elseIf this were any other point in time I'd agree wholeheartedly but, at the moment Akatsuki seems to be our number one concern. I'm not sure if we can risk having the host be some one who can't fight back.Also>>43077879
>>43077855>D.Other"Roshi and Han are barely associated with their village anymore, the Mist have lost both of theirs already, and I don't need to tell you what happened to Naruto. Though sealing it into a newborn may have higher potential, I've seen no evidence of that potential having been reached.""That being said, I couldn't suggest anyone else to put that burden onto. It wouldn't feel right."
>>43077855>B.I think you should seal it in someone elseIt'd be like taking candy from a baby for the akatsuki to... steal a baby
>>43077855>C.I don't think I'm qualified to give my opinion on this, Lord HokageBut...B.I think you should seal it in someone elseSomeone older. With Akatsuki out there, we need someone that can defend themselves. I'd volunteer myself but that seems a bit selfish.
>>43077855>B.I think you should seal it in someone elseHe realizes adult jinchuriki were getting fucked up right, and he wants to start off with a useless baby
>>43077855>B.I think you should seal it in someone elseOffer our body for the glory of the leaf
QuestionIf we get Biju do we have our Stamina jumped to 5.0?
>>43077855>B.I think you should seal it in someone elseIf rin can survive sealing then so can weLaze pls
>>43078011We could trySupportan
>>43077855>C.I don't think I'm qualified to give my opinion on this, Lord Hokage
>>43077855>B.I think you should seal it in someone elseUs.On a sidenote, becoming a jinchuriki would shoot our chakra control to hell
>>43077855>B.I think you should seal it in someone elseConsidering Sasuke is going to come back all buffed up, we need a way to get stronk, so I recommend us for candidate.
>>43078056We can train with other jichurikisLike 4 tails for example....
We already have a Bloodline, we don't need a Bijuu as well. Someone more appropriate. Someone with excellent chakra control. Someone with a knowledge of seals. Someone like... Tenten.
>>43077855>B.I think you should seal it in someone elseThis is what Sarutobi sensei meant when he was talking about the will of fire, we must put our lives on the line and beecome a jinchuriki.
So after we become a junchuriki, we would have a house excuse to run if and train on monkey mountain it with someone else, just tell Itachi we need to become one with our tailed beast and learn how to use it properly
>>43077855For the love of god, faggots are suggesting us in a samefagging sperg. PLEASE do a numbered vote.
You think hard on the subject. Itachi has a point, but is it worth the risk? You don't quite know."I don't think I'm qualified to give my opinion on this, Lord Hokage." you respond. "But remember that the Akatsuki are after the tailed beasts, and a baby can't defend itself at all. At the very least, I know we need to make sure that the Jinchuuriki is treated right and not ostracized.""That much is assured." Itachi tells you. "Anko and Iruka have promised that the child would be raised with love and care, regardless of his circumstances. As for sealing it in someone who could fight, such a sealing would be disastrous to said person's battle potential. It may be years before they can even use their own chakra properly again, let alone the tailed beast's. And they would never be able to commune with the tailed beast as well as a younger person would. I can't in good continence do that to any of my ninja, who have trained so hard to attain their skills. I had decided to leave all my ninja as they were, and we could focus on protecting the new Jinchuuriki. Unless that is, you truly believe there is someone else who should do it.">A.No, we need all our ninja in top condition>B.I could do it>C.I know someone who would be willing>D.Other
>>43078192>>B.I could do it
>>43078192>A. No, we need all our ninja in top condition.
>>43078192>A.No, we need all our ninja in top condition
>>43078192>>A.No, we need all our ninja in top condition
>>43078192>A.No, we need all our ninja in top conditionWe already got our special release. I rather not go DOUBLE special snowflake.
>>43078192>B.I could do it
>>43078192>A.No, we need all our ninja in top condition.It's all good. Stick with the monkey-sage plan! We're strong independent ninja who don't need no Bijuu.
>>43078192>>A. No, we need all our ninja in top condition.Well then, I guess we gotta protect the child.
>>43078192guys, suggesting us would be an awful idea. We can serve the leaf in a FAR better capacity as we are now.
>>43078231I don't understand why people keep getting this idea that the monkeys can teach us Sage Mode. There is absolutely zero evidence for them being able to do that. It's like back when people were just assuming that we had the Kaguya bloodline.
>>43078192>B.I could do itWhat exactly is going on with that prophecy the toad sage made, i wonder
>>43078192>C.I know someone who would be willingRock Lee doesn't web been use his chakra, it would impact him the least
>>43078192why not give it to Lee who doesn't use Chakra anyways?
>>43078258They can teach usNaruto had shit chakra control compared to us and Enma likes us enough that he could teach us shitSage mode is totally possible
>>43078192>B.I could do itWe need more power if we're going to face Naruto
>>43078192>I could do it.
>>43078192>B.I could do itI'd like to see us augment our bloodline using Isobu's power.
>>43078275Probably completely off the rails. The prophecy was due to the Great Toad Sage detecting the presence of Asura inside Naruto. Given that Naruto is acting completely against Asura's principles, it's not likely that he's sticking around (whether or not Sasuke has Indra is uncertain). Asura's probably transmigrated over to someone who can better fulfill his philosophy. Who is probably not us, sadly.>>43078297No, I mean "Why do people assume the monkeys have Sage Mode"? Nothing has indicated that. There are only two summons that are confirmed for being able to attain it, the toads and the snakes. And given that I'd expect Sarutobi to have used Sage Mode if he knew it, and there was no reason for the monkeys not to have taught him that if they knew it, they probably don't know it.
>>43078292He uses chakra, he just can't use it for ninjutsu or genjutsu.The fuck do you think the gates DO?
>>43078313>>43078332>>43078337>>43078344You realize that we lose ALLLLLLLLLLL our power if we do this right?
>>43078292Please let this be a thing.
>>43078346He also can, at the least, manipulate it well enough to walk on walls and water like all the other ninja can. There's actually no indication in the series that he has any physiological problem with using chakra, just that he lacks any skill with manifesting it.
>>43078192>>A.No, we need all our ninja in top conditionAnko and Iruka? Huh. Cute.I don't remember even seeing them in the same room in canon.
>>43078192>B.I could do itI'm aware of the loss of power, but in the long term it's a great boon.
>>43078403Canon was left behind a loooooong time ago, anon.
>>43078418Not really as we lose our release for several years, will never be able to befriend it, and can barely use it's chakra.
>>43078192>B.I could do itNaruto is probably going to wreck us.

"We'll keep the child safe.""Thank you, Kon." the Hokage says. "It's not an easy choice by any means, but with all of us working together, we can make things work. We need at least one more member to go on this mission. Is ther anyone you want to work with, Kon? Or that will work well with Neji or Kakashi?">A.I can't think of anyone in particular>B.I have someone in mind>C.Other

Why are idiots going with B?We can't use the biju correctly and we'll lose our godlike chakra control and our bloodline for who knows how many years
>>43078470>>B.I have someone in mindLee
>>43078470Shino if he can heal in time, he can sap it's chakra to slow it down and if need be steal as much as possible from the Akatsuki if they come calling before we finish the job.
>>43078470>B.I have someone in mindMight Gai.
>>43078470>C.Other"I've worked well with Shikamaru and Tenten in the past. Really, it just comes down to who agrees to go along.""After Shukaku, I wouldn't put facing down another tailed beast onto anyone."
>>43078470>B.I have someone in mind10/10I'm sure she'd appreciate getting to work on these high level missions, plus her sealing is top notch
>>43078470>C Do we have anyone good at dealing with tailed beasts specifically? I remember that both Madera and The First both had their ways of dealing with tailed beasts very effectively. Doubt we have any wood users though.Hint Tenzo Hint.
>>43078470>B.I have someone in mindLee
>>43078470>B. Tenten. Her summoning seals would allow us to move around the battlefield instantly.
>>43078470>B.I have someone in mindGai. He works well with Kakashi, and he's awesome. Dude can kick so hard he breaks the fabric of reality. Granted, it kills him to do so, but it's still badass.
>>43078519>>43078470Fair point. Wood boy is literally the village specialist on tailed beasts.
>>43078490>>43078502>>43078526First of all, we kind of just agreed to Sixth's plan. Second, we haven't advanced the notion to Lee of getting the turtle monster sealed into him, nor have we even asked Six. And Lee DOES use chakra. All ninja do. He'd be almost as fucked as we'd be.It was a stupid idea. Let it go.
>>43078553No dude. I just wanted to fight with Lee thats all.
>>43078474They're thinking about the end game, I think, where if you don't have a mangekyo or a biju you're worthless for anything other than being a chakra battery. The problem is that while we'd be plot-relevant then, it would render us plot-irrelevant until then. And that's honestly just as if not more boring.
>>43078519>>43078546Yamato is leading the sealing team
>>43078553>Is there anyone you want to work with, Kon? Or that will work well with Neji or Kakashi?"I was responding to that question. Use that reading comprehension of yours.
>>43078470>>B.I have someone in mindShino would be good, but he's in no shape for a mission."Sai and Tenten, if they're up to it. Gai. And we have to be prepared for someone from Akatsuki to show up. We're probably outgunned, so right now, I'll take anyone willing and able."
>>43078470>B.I have someone in mindAnyone but Tenten. Clearly we're trying too hard with her, and she won't be particularly useful for this operation.
You think about potential teammates."I've worked well with Tenten and Shikamaru before." you say. "Even in my previous match against a tailed beast. Lee and Gai Sensei also have good synergy with Kakashi Sensei and I.""I'm afraid I can't spare Shikamaru or Tenten at this time, I need them here." the Hokage replies. "Lee and Gai, I could work into the team. I think that's about all I can manage for this now, but I think it will be enough."Just then, the door bursts open. Haku is standing in the doorway, Ino behind him, a look of worry on her face."Lord Hokage, I also wish to go on this mission." Haku says, giving the Sixth a deep bow. "I am sure that swordsman will show up again. This time I will be ready.""If Haku's going, I'm going too!" Ino demands. "He needs me to watch after him."Itachi sighs. "I don't think it's a good idea to send you on this mission, in the state you're in. Much less if you intend to face Hoshigaki again."Haku is holding his bow."Please, Lord Hokage." Haku pleads. "I have something that I must do. I must face that swordsman again.">A.No way, Haku. You're in no condition to go>B.Are you sure he can't join us, Lord Hokage?>C.Other
>>43078751>A.No way, Haku. You're in no condition to go

>>43078751>B.Are you sure he can't join us, Lord Hokage?
>>43078751>>A.No way, Haku. You're in no condition to go"He probably won't be there anyway. He's just had a mission - Akatsuki will likely send someone fresh."
>>43078751>A.No way, Haku. You're in no condition to goWe didn't save your life just so you could throw it away.
>>43078192>As for sealing it in someone who could fight, such a sealing would be disastrous to said person's battle potential. It may be years before they can even use their own chakra properly again, let alone the tailed beast's.So is the assumption that all the people in canon who became jinchuriki as teenagers or adults and did just fine did so because of plot powers? I'm not disputing this, I'm just asking if I'm reading the logic right. Because the only person I can think of who go sealed later than early childhood and didn't have some Sage of Six Paths bullshit was B, and even he was a few years younger than we are right now. Well, maybe Ginkaku and Kinkaku, but I remember one of the observers of their fight hypothesizing they were descended from the Sage, so they're probably a bust.
>>43078764>>43078783>>43078788>>43078819>>43078826"No way, Haku. You're in no condition to go." you insist. "He likely won't be there anyway, if he just had a mission. Akatsuki will be more likely to send someone fresh.""Kon is right, Haku." the Hokage adds. "For now, you need to rest. Your chance will come."Haku stands back up. "Understood."He leaves, dejected, with Ino in tow.Itachi sighs yet again. "I hope he doesn't take that too hard. Well then, Kon. Time is of the essence. I'll get everyone together immediately. You leave at noon.">End of chapter 33Sorry if it feels like today was short, I kind of feel like that tooRunning again on FridayTwitter is @LazeQM

>>43076932Nah, we have virtually no presence. We just use explosive tags to compensate for that. We'd do fine as an ANBU.
>>43076932What is it about us that would be so obvious?Our bloodline yes, but we do need to start branching out to other things, and we need more experience, even Jiraiya said so.

>>43079077>Also yeah, SotSP powers are bullshitWhich worries me, because we have no access to them, and all of the major villains do. I'm sure you have something planned to let us be able to match up against them, but I'm having trouble thinking of what it would be.
>>43079088 Who else in the village is known for tossing around explosives in ridiculous amounts?
>>43079176Unless Kon has tits, our identity would still be obvious.
>>43079240Except ANBU wear form-concealing clothing. So it wouldn't be.
>>43079262Does it have a hood?
>>43079309Cool, let's get a dog mask, the opposite of monkeys.
>>43079309Anbu look so boss, it's a shame they only showed up in order to get their asses kicked to show how badass the enemy is.
Also I thought I was being pretty funny with the baby's name, but no one caught it
>>43079544food jokes, way to stick with kishimoto's theme
>>43079544I think I caught it (taiyaki being a desert often made using anko paste, right?) but I was too distracted by "HOLY SHIT ANKO REPRODUCED WE'RE DOOMED".
>>43079544Does it have something to do with the Six-Tails?
>>43079593The jokes builds on the parent's names, so I thought I was being clever
>>43079622But Iruka means "dolphin", not "fish".
>>43079622Also, interesting that the kids last name is Mitarashi
>>43079640In Japan they're the same thing.
>>43079622Wow, when it came to dolphin puns, you really BLEW it!
>>43079665No, "fish" is "sakana".
>>43079718Somebody doesn't get jokes.
>>43079746Were you going for dolphin being caught in nets and being sold as tuna, or something like that?
>>43079640>>43079690Hey, if there was a pastry filled with red bean paste that was shaped like a dolphin, you can bet I'd have used thatBut I took what I could getI still thought it was pretty good>>43079660Well, Anko is a higher status than IrukaPlus it's not like Iruka has a family that needs its prestigious name passed on
>>43079763Iruka and Anko had baby?... oh man.
>>43079763>>43081938>Iruka and Anko had baby?I need to know the story behind that one
>>43081952I bet Anko is the top
>>43081973I think playing an omake as Iruka trying to confess to Anko to be even more entertaining.
>>43081952Actually, they met during the invasion and hit it offIruka was all too willing to indulge her sweet tooth, so they just kept spending more and more time together and wellIt happened
>>43082014Also this is me, guysForgot I wasn't at my computer anymore
>>43082005>>43082035I support this
>>43082005>All that delicious spaghetti>Not even the mangekyo can contain itFunded>>43082014....No marriage?
>>43082054Yes marriage, you just didn't know about it, they kept it smallSai was there, but he doesn't tell anyone anything unless they specifically ask about it
