So I just remembered how Anko (and Hinata) had a curse mark, and how Orochimaru kind of had fail-safes in those in case of his demise.And she's pretty much right next to the 3-tails at all times.
After declaring his intention of calling a summit of the five Kages, the Raikage quickly shoos everyone out of his office before you can got another word in, claiming that he is very busy. You currently stand outside of the Raikage's office doors with Tsunade and Bee."I can't really blame him for being in a bad mood, all things considered." Tsunade says. "But I don't think this was necessary."Tsunade looks a bit haggard, but more than you would think from just the fight and treating everyone. Bee meanwhile, has his arms crossed and is tapping his fingers to his elbow nervously."Aw naw, this just ain't right." Bee starts. "Those guys got Yugito way too easy. I want to help put these Akatsuki guys down, but no doubt bro's gonna have me locked down for a while. I probably ain't going nowhere.""It's a reasonable reaction." Tsunade responds. "We can only hope that by the time of the summit, we'll be able to put together an ultimate countermeasure to Akatsuki. We'll head back to our village once everyone's recovered enough, and start preparing.""I hear you yo, need some time to make a plan." Bee goes on. "I'll lay low til then, and we'll take a stand. Most important thing right now is staying out of their hands, right?"With a nod from Tsunade, Bee says farewell and leaves, claiming that he's off to enjoy his freedom while he can, and Tsunade heads back toward the hospital.>A.Head back to your room and relax>B.Go see the others>C.Follow Tsunade>D.Follow Bee>E.Other
>>43595734If I remember right, Orochimaru can't just regen from a curse mark on his own. He needs someone to perform the operation for him, draw his soul back. Without that, it's just a bit of his chakra serving as a marker, and won't do anything on its own.
>>43595745>A.Head back to your room and relax
>>43595745>>43595745>D.Follow BeeBEE TRAIN ME. PLEASE.We got a snake sword and electric powers, you'll fucking love us!
>>43595745>C.Follow TsunadeTsunade-Sensei, i think we should go after the rest of Orochimaru's lackeys. Uzumaki Naruto, Karin and Yakushi Kabuto. Karin had some research about taking the bijuu out of the jinchuuriki's body without killing him. And Yakushi Kabuto was a truly dangerous medical nin. We should send a tea to track them down and capture them. What do you think?
>>43595669IT BE TIME FOR TEH NINJA ANTICS BOIZ
>>43595669So, guys.Some things.>We are unstoppable in Melee except against maybe pain, thus we should track down Lee to learn Taijutsu>We should ask Neji how he does his maneuvering in midair, then combine it with our giant leap and LEARN HOW TO FUCKING FLY>Get a block of wood, put hand on either side, experiment with various lower intensities of impact chakra, manipulating it to create new effects (that QM will have to think of)>>43595745>C. "Hey...you holding up alright? That can't have been easy for you."
>>43595745>D.Follow BeeHe's tight.>>43595755Well, there's still going Kabuto, now with zombie Hokages.Also, I think that our line of questions to Naruto was on the right track, but we addressed the wrong person. Should've asked the Nine-tails if he was alright with being sacrificed like that instead.
>>43595810We could also take a trip to monkey mountain, learn monkey sage mode.
Seriously guys, Orochimaru was a pretty resourceful guy. We should hunt Kabuto/Naruto/Karin and put an end to this. Karin made the research and Kabuto because he is frickin' Kabuto and i don't want to fight zombies.
>>43595850We can do the Neji thing, then perfect it on Monkey Mountain.
>>43595867To bad we don't know the zombies are coming. To Kon's memory, he's never used that jutsu. Everyone's going to get caught off guard.
>>43595850You mean our Oozaru Mode!Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go!
>>43595925I think Orochimaru still used the reanimated Hokages in the invasion, it's just that Sarutobi had backup this time so drastic measures weren't needed. So there's probably someone back in Konoha who knows that the threat is potentially out there.
>>43595925Hell, in canon i always wondered why they never hunte Kabuto down. The guy was Orochimaru's second in command and a ridiculously good medical nin. Now, he has the Jinchuuriki of the Nine Tails and Karin with him. Geez, seriously, send someone after them at least. Maybe Shino. He's not doing anything and he is our resident badass.
>>43595997Bigger fish to fry?He's obviously our next target now. We just took off one head of a snake. Orochimaru has tendency to HYDRA it up. HAIL HYDRA. Sorry nervous tick.
>>43595997>He's not doing anythingFuu not withstanding.
>>43595850I'm still not convinced the monkeys have senjutsu. If anyone would have known the monkey version of senjutsu, it would have been Sarutobi, and he didn't use it. He even had a breather during the fight where he could have gathered nature chakra, so it's not that he didn't get a chance to do it.
>>43596029Do we even know where Hashirama learned it?
>>43596020Holy shit, i forgot that. Shino is such a badass he is doing best girl after saving her from Akatsuki and managing to keep her alive after losing her bijuu.Hell, by now, he probably has unleashed the Shino Sage Mode.
>>43596029I'm sure whatever training the monkeys have for us it will be extremely useful. Senjutsu or not.
>>43596061I'm surprised Shino hasn't delved into medical jutsu since his bugs are surprisingly effective at keeping people alive.
>>43596056No, he's never mentioned as having any summons. Though his version doesn't have any animal features to it, so it could be he didn't learn it from a summon at all. Maybe the whole "incarnation of Asura" thing combined with his Wood Release already giving him a tie to natural energies let him figure out senjutsu on his own.
>>43596029Some guys were saying we should leave the monkey training for Konohamaru and go after the snake contract. Hell, at least they have a Sage Mode (And we'll be able to do some jedi shit with Kusanagi). However, Enma is way too awesome to give up on monkeys.
>>43595971Except he was fighting Jiraya and Itachi. There's no telling how that fight went exactly unless we ask. As for Sarutobi, he was poisonned when they fought and he didn't need to use it.Unfortunatly there still wouldn't be proof that Kabuto could do it to, so no excuse to go after him early. We could make 'incidental' preperations though, like better ways to completly immobilize a target or something.
>>43595770>>43595803>>43595810>>43595823https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yAKb5xMqbs&list=PL4C928EAF7AA5B906&index=17You follow Tsunade to see how she's holding up. She heads into the hospital, where she finds a seat at the end of a hallway out of the way from all the other visitors.You take a seat next to her."How are you doing, Tsunade Sensei?" you ask. "That whole ordeal must have been something.""You better believe it, kid." Tsunade sighs. "It's been so long. And now all the memories we shared are coming back to me. Even though I tell myself he had changed, it's still tough. There were still things that reminded me of our younger days, up until the very end. He had that look on his face that he always had whenever someone got the best of him. Even after we fought Hanzo he would always say there were things he could have done, more jutsu he could have used but didn't. He would always justify things like that. He was like that yesterday too. It really drove everything home. And now, I've been worrying about Jiraiya too. I wonder how he's going to feel about this. He always regretted not being able to stop Orochimaru back then. I just hope we get the chance to talk about the old days again."Tsunade looks like she's deep in thought.>A.Tell her you're concerned about something>B.Ask about Orochimaru>C.Ask about Jiraiya>D.Leave>E.Other

>>43596135>A.Tell her you're concerned about somethingSo how do we prepare for the next attack by the Akatsuki? With the death of members they're going to need new members. People we don't know. Tobi is a good boy... >B.Ask about Orochimaru>C.Ask about Jiraiya
>>43596135>E. There was probably a good kid in there, somewhere. Everyone always believes they're doing what they need to...
>>43596135>A.Tell her you're concerned about something>C.Ask about Jiraiya"That reminds me: Lord Jiraiya was acting weird after he heard that someone with the Rinnegan was in Akatsuki. And later I walked in on Itachi trying to convince him not to go take on a risky mission, though I didn't gather what it was. I don't want to pry, but do know what that's about?"
>>43596186We forgot to take their rings with us, haven't we?
>>43596209This, so much this. Add how we think something happened in the past, he's trying to hide it
Alright guys I've got a plan. We form the UN.We propose it as an anti-akatsuki kind of thing at the kage meeting comprising of a handful of each nations best and brightest. We can also sell it as a way for the nations to foster inter-village peace and trust and whatever, we pretty much make it sound like we'd be a completely neutral organization that all the nations can rely on for whatever they need to ensure peace.But the kicker is that we start building it before the summit. We have friends in the stone village. We talk to stonekage's granddaughter and a few family members and convince them to back us.Then we talk to Kankuro and Temari and get them on board and then we'd have the sand village with usBug girl would probably be pretty easy to convince if Shino is there (and lets admit, he's pretty badass, he'd definitely fit in with what were planning)We helped the snow princess chick, I'm sure she'd be willing to help in some way even if it's just manpowerAnd Bee seems pretty friendly towards us.The only village I don't think we'd have anyone backing us for is the mist but if we get everyone else backing us then that'll force them into supporting us because the numbers would be against them.We meet with everyone and get them on board with the idea before the meeting and then (in the nicest possible way) force the Kages to agree to itWe get a dedicated anti-akatsuki taskforce and a way to keep the villages in check
>>43596135>B.Ask about Orochimaruasides from the bad we should ask about who he used to be before he fell from grace
>>43596232I say we build our own village. A place where ninjas can live without being sacrificed by their villages, a place where they can live without the fear of being abandoned by their homelands.And then we call it Outer Heaven.
>>43596332With blackjack and hookers. Y'know what forget the village and blackjack.
>>43596332Now we need the snake contractAlso an eye patchMaybe some cigars
>>43596332> We'll make kunais from their ashes. Take them into battle with us.
>>43596406We'll of course need cigars, but we'll need artificial ones, so they don't leave smoke or ash in the field.We'll give them to our Phantom. We've always preferred the real deal.
just as a thought, is there any reason we couldn't train one of our monkey summons to lay traps for us while we fight? it might take a bit a practice to for the both of us to be on the same page but it should be pretty effective
>>43596463Or become a target for enemy snipers.
>>43596484Boss, get down!
>>43596504>Our ninja name is "The Boss" or "Big Boss"I am erect
>>43596527Well, Konohamaru already calls us that sometimes. So maybe.
>>43596463Well, our Lil'Bro is a Sarutobi, our sensei was a Sarutobi and Asuma is pretty cool. Ans both the Third and Asuma smoked, let's get into the family's tradition. Just waiting now 'til Kabuto clones us.
>>43596559Liquid Lightning, Solid Storm, and Liquidus Thunder.Ninjenfante Terrible.
>>43596559Imagine the destruction that would follow a Kon v Kon battle.
If we learned how to fly we could be called the Roaring Comet.
>>43596588what happens when our heavenly lance hits our barrier?
>>43596148>>43596184>>43596186>>43596209>>43596231>>43596317>>43596318With Tsunade's reminiscing, you're starting to get a bit curious. And you're not Jiraiya, but talking about it might help her feel better anyway."What were they like, Sensei?" you ask. "Back in those old days of yours?"With a slight smile, Tsunade starts to recall the times the Sannin shared together, from their first day as a team with the very same bell test you took, to their legendary battle with Hanzo from which they earned their title.As Tsunade finishes describing the battle in the Hidden Rain Village, a concern resurfaces in your mind."Wait, Tsunade Sensei." you interrupt. "That reminds me. Lord Jiraiya was acting weird after hearing about the Akatsuki member with the Rinnegan, who was wearing a Rain headband. And later I walked in on Itachi trying to convince him not to go on a risky mission. It might not be my place to ask but, do you know what that was about?"Tsunade looks down."Yeah, I know." she responds. "On our way back from the Rain, we ran into three orphans. Jiraiya stayed a while to rain them, try to let them have a chance in their war torn little village. It turns out one of them had the Rinnegan. There's no doubt who that Akatsuki member is. There's no way it could be anyone else. Jiraiya went to the Rain to learn the truth. He's probably there right now."Tsunade looks very worried. The meeting you saw before was likely them talking about this mission of his.>A.Change the subject>B.Assure her>C.Inquire further>D.Leave>E.Other

>>43596733I'll second these
>>43596816Better not to invoke Susano'o. If we do, some Uchiha asshole is just going to try to establish dominance.
>>43596672Heavenly Strike, Terrestrial Aegis, Terrestrial ArmorI'm all for differing themes. Heaven represents mind and Earth represents body, a nice bit of philosophy in the move naming
>>43596733I remember seeing a fair amount of support for Divine Aegis, so that might be the one to useThere's been less consensus on the other two though
>>43596816Dude, i know Kon = Susanoo is the one and only official canon, but those Uchiha guys will be pissed.
>>43596881I kind of want to name the punching one "Heart Strike" because it's pretty much the Herza Hauen from GUNM, but it just doesn't sound catchy enough when translated. "Heart-Stopping Strike", maybe?
>>43596881I vote yes to all three.
>>43596672Impact Release: Whispering BlowsImpact Release: Harmonic SilenceImpact Release: Choir's Canon
>>43596733>Heavenly Strikewe already have Heavenly Lance, i'd kinda like to mix it up morei'm a little partial to Percussive do to "having powerful impact" (then again it was my vote)>Divine Aegisworks for me
>>43596672Going back to that idea a load of threads back about offense/defense/utility theme naming;Divine Strike.Demon Wall.Devil's Armour
>>43596930Takehaya. From Takehaya Susanoo-no-Mikoto. But only when we unleash our true potential and create our Kekkei Genkai most powerful jutsus.
>>43596672For the third move, I nominate "Shintai Armor".Literally refers to the "body of a god", the physical part of a landscape in which a kami is thought to reside.
I might call it for Divine Aegis, there's strong enough support and then you've got your Spear+Shield theme going with those two movesBut I'll let you guys keep talking it over for a while, I'll get back to writing
>>43597021When Kon learns to supercharge himself with his Impact Jutsu by directing his own power inward. Then he realizes the legend and ascends to the legendary Super Shinobi.
I still want to get around to develop disintegration techniques. Lots of potential for destruction when it comes to vibration.
>>43597050The name is way too strong for a jutsu that's not yet perfect. I say we leave it for the ultimate Impact defense jutsu, when we get stronger. Raiden for attack and Shintai for defense.
>>43597065Takehaya Mode Kon wielding a Impact coated Kusanagi side by side with Monkey Sage Konohamaru wielding Enma.That'd be really badass.
while we are talking about moves,half of our release is lightning right. how about something where we build up a large positive charge of impact chakra in one hand and negative in the other then clap them together for a more directed shockwave
>>43596627>C.Inquire furtherif he does find the truth will he be able to handle it?
>>43597133I feel like "Kongou" should be used in the name of our ultimate techniques. It's the Japanese word for the Vajra, the indestructible thunderbolt weapon of Hindu myth. Impenetrable and irresistible, and the name references thunder. It's also already used in the Japanese name of the Adamatine Staff Transformation that Enma uses, so if we learn from him it would be a nice tribute. Finally, the Vajra is the weapon of the god Indra, meaning that we can reference the whole "Asura and Indra" thing in the process and tie it into the setting's specific metaphysics.
>>43597133I don't think it gets much stronger than that, just more efficient uses of it. I mean seriously, where do we realistically go from "armor made out of shockwaves"?
>>43596650>>43596652>>43596686>>43596756Tsunade look really worried. It makes sense that this would all come to a head with Orochimaru's death. You try to reassure her."The Fifth will be fine." you say. "He was the Hokage. I'm sure he can get in and out just fine. Do we know anything else? Are those other orphans members of the Akatsuki?""They might be." Tsunade replies. "There's just too much we don't know about the Rain. They're too secretive. That's why Jiraiya went alone. He told me since I always lose my bets, I should bet on him not coming back. Talk about a joke in poor taste, right?"She forces out a laugh before she stands up. I'm going to get some rest. Everyone should be good enough to start heading back tomorrow morning, though our pace may be a bit slow. You should get some rest too, Kon."After Tsunade leaves, you head to the cafeteria for meal. Hospital food isn't very appetizing, but it's only for one day. It'll just make your uncle's food taste that much better when you return.By the time you're done, it's evening. You could turn in early, or see if anyone is up to hang out.>A.Head back to your room to rest>B.Seek someone out>C.Other
>>43597255>>B.Seek someone out>Bee? Or is he long gone?
>>43597255>B.Seek someone outcheck on the other team, and apologize for not checking on them sooner
Reassure her some, ask if she want to go get a drink, we don't come to this land often. Side note, take snake contract as a second, green chakra, become known as the Jade Serpent, become leader of land of rain, unite the world under our wisdom.As far as moves are consirned we need an ultimate move. My vote some kind of impenetrable bubble shield that heals and restores heal and chakra to those within it.

You still need to give Shikamaru those puppets anyway.You head through a few hallways until you reach the room they're staying in.As you walk in, you see Asuma and Ino sitting off to the side, and Shikamaru, Choji, and a Cloud ninja in the room's three beds. The Cloud ninja seems to have a lollipop in his mouth. Everyone seems to be in high spirits, joking around.You see another Cloud ninja beside Choji's bed, the girl with red hair from before. She seems to be handing Choji some takoyaki she brought."Wow! These are great!" Choji says, as he shovels them in his mouth. "Thanks, Karui!""Well, they're a village specialty. I figured you'd like them more than hospital food." Karui replies, scratching her head. "And well, you know. You deserve it for protecting everyone back there."You head over to Shikamaru's bed and hand him the two scrolls that you sealed the puppets into."Thanks Kon. I owe you one." Shikamaru replies. "Then again, I probably already owe you a lot, I'm sure. Just make sure you know I'll help you out whenever I can.">A.Stay here and talk to someone>B.Head back to your room>C.Other

>>43597771>>43597699Seconding. Kon should remember to take the time to be a little shit. He's only 16, after all.
>>43597740Shouldn't their rings still be on their corpses, and therefore already be in our possession? You know, since Tsunade took Orochimaru's corpse to autopsy, and we gave Shikamaru Sasori's corpse to be used as a puppet.
Hey, Laze. Recommend you see this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXuMZDXaP5s
>>43597699>>43597720>>43597726>>43597771Seeing the atmosphere, you decide to chill here for a bit with everyone else."So Shikamaru, how's Temari doing?" you ask, grinning. "I'm sure those puppets will get you on Kankuro's good side, huh?"You prod Shikamaru as he turns his head a bit away from you."Come on, me and Temari?" he asks. "She's such a pain. Always getting on my case over every little thing. Not to mention, she's tougher than me. It's a bad match no matter how you look at it. I'm just trying to keep the Leaf and Sand on good terms. I'm not looking to get involved with her."Given the fact that Shikamaru's gone out of his way to get involved with Temari before, you're not convinced. But you drop it for now.You spend the rest of the evening chatting with everyone, before heading to your own room and turning in.The next morning, you and the other Leaf ninja are at the gate, ready to leave. Bee is there with Karui and the Cloud ninja with the lollipop, named Omoi. Apparently they're his students.Bee sticks his fist out in front of you."Nice meeting you, kid." Bee says.

Then we'll team up, and beat Akatsuki by a mile. So even if you don't see me, keep that smile, yo."Everyone bids each other farewell, and your group heads back to the Leaf village. It takes a few days, Asuma and Choji can't exactly keep a fast pace up with their injuries.When you do arrive, everyone disperses at the gate except Tsunade and Neji."Kon, I was going to be the one to make the report." Neji tells you. "You can join e if you want, but I wanted you to have the opportunity to go straight home if you wanted.">A.I'll come along>B.Thanks for covering, I'll do that>C.Don't sweat it, I'll give the report>D.Other

>>43598616>A.I'll come along

Report in and then go find sasuke
Hold up a bit guys, have to run some errands
>>43598707Next break will be supper guys! So take your smoke break, food break or bathroom break now. Intermission.
>>43598661We really should give it to Anko. She'd be far more capable of using it than we are, and it would be some nice symbolism for her to use the sword of the man who took away her life to protect the new one she's made for herself. Because to find love and start a family despite what her former master's betrayal did to her ability to trust means she's won the fight against Orochimaru in a way we never could. She deserves a good trophy of that victory.
>>43598789Or, or... We could use it because honestly, we are field agents and part of the hokage main squad, we'll find a better use for it. Let's take snakes as our second summon.We just need to find Kabuto now. Shit.
>>43598843There's nothing Kusanagi can do that Enma can't, and we already have a contract for him. It's redundant and a waste of resources to pursue unlocking it.
>>43598843>For someone without a contract with the snakes, it's likely just a very sharp sword.this implys to me that for someone with the contract its better than just a sharp sword, i'm in fave of throwing it at Ankobesides we already have lots of weapons and should have just gotten our gantlets
>>43598616>A.I'll come alongman I still feel bad from Laze mentioning in a previous thread that we're basically his only friend. It'd be nice if we could bring him along whenever we next spend out down time with a group of friends
>>43598900>should have just gotten our gantletsIt's been like two weeks, top, since we left for the stone. Probably less.Laze has already said that the gauntlets would take a few months to actually make.
>>43598843Besides I would rather keep our second hand open for a different contract holding out for some unknown spiders to help with traps

"I can't imagine it will take long."The three of you head to the Hokage's office to find Itachi waiting."Welcome back, everyone." the Sixth greets you. "From what I've heard, your mission went exceedingly well.""It did indeed, Lord Sixth." Neji replies. "We've eliminated two of the Akatsuki at once."Neji gives his recount of the events, and defers to you for some details. Tsunade then says her part."We finally seem to be making progress, it seems." the Hokage says. "Thank you all for your hard work. This operation was not assured any results, but you came out of it better than we ever dared to expect.">A.Ask about Orochimaru's captured subordinates>B.Ask about plans for the summit>C.Ask about something else>D.Say nothing>E.Other
>>43598900Kusanagi can move on its own and change its size, making it able to do ranged attacks by either floating over and attacking or just extending the blade. And it can turn into a snake, of course. It might be able to do more, but if it can we never see it.
>>43599154>A.Ask about Orochimaru's captured subordinatesHow are we holding onto Suigetsu? He's made of water. No cell can hold him. Did we stick him in a jug? That's a serious question.
>>43599154>A.Ask about Orochimaru's captured subordinates>E. I'd like to interrogate one of hem, Juugo. Apparently, he respects people who manage to put him down when he goes all out. It may be easier for me to get some answers from him.

>>43599186>>43599190>>43599210>>43599255>>43599289>>43599306The most prominent concern in your mind is the fate of the three people you were able to capture at Orochimaru's hideout."What happened to Orochimaru's captured subordinates?" you ask. "Did they arrive without incident?""They did." Itachi responds. "They have actually been surprisingly cooperative. No attempts to escape whatsoever. We've been getting what information we can from them. You all did a good job bringing them here. If you have a reason to speak with any of them, feel free to do so. Sasuke has been doing just that lately."The Hokage leans down to reach a low drawer as he changes the subject."I was looking through some things left in the office, and found some of Lord Jiraiya's things." he says, pulling a piece of paper out from the drawer. "I found something I thought would interest you. Lord Jiraiya kept it this whole time."Itachi hands you a piece of paper. It's a page out of another village's bingo book. This page is focused on a familiar person, a woman whose picture you've seen often."Tempest of the Hidden Leaf: Saeko Karagowa." you read out loud.The page details her achievements, and known capabilities. It says she's the Leaf's greatest practitioner of Wind jutsu."Since you're starting to make a name for yourself, I thought it would be appropriate to give you your own title." the Hokage goes on. "Rather than letting someone else do it, wouldn't it be better to take a name to honor your lineage? I was thinking 'Storm of the Hidden Leaf'.">A.That's perfect>B.I've got another idea>C.Lord Jiraiya had this?>D.Other

>>43599583Time to unveil some family wind jutsu? Did Dad ever get a ninja name?
Man, Itachi's so nice to us. Dude really seems to like us, he's always getting our input and valuing our contributions and all that. I don't know, maybe it's just his management style in general, but it makes me wonder if we're fulfilling some psychological need of his. Shisui's dead, his brother barely talks to him, and he never really had any peers. Kind of feels like maybe Itachi needs a friend and is awkwardly trying to get that from interactions with his subordinates.
>>43599992Itachi for best bro.
>>43599992Almost makes me forget the fact that mind fucked his entire clanfite me
>>43600167Punished BombermanA fallen legend

Even if it's just a title, having a connection like that to your mother just feels right."It's perfect." you reply. "Lord Jiraiya had this?""That's right. I found a lot of things that he kept over the years. He had pages for his other students as well." the Hokage tells you. "He's not the kind of man to throw memories of his students aside. As much as I'm sure it hurt him that they all passed, I'm also sure he would still be proud of them. I know he's dismissed you in the past Kon, but please understand. He's a great man, he's just been through a lot."You hand the page back to Itachi and he puts it away in the drawer before speaking again."I've received word of the summit next month." the Hokage says, turning in his chair. "Traditionally, a Kage is accompanied by two bodyguards to the summit. Neji, Kon. I wanted to know if you would like to join me on the trip to the Land of Iron."As the Sixth turns back to face you, Neji answers."Of course, Lord Sixth." he replies. "I would be honored."Itachi looks to you expectantly."I don't mind if you'd rather not. If it would infringe on your training, please disregard it.">A.I'd like to accompany you>B.Sorry, I have other things I need to do>C.Other
>>43599992We should invite him to lunch at our Uncle's.>>43599583>A. That's perfect>C. Lord Jiraiya had this?>D. Why don't you stop by my Uncle's later for lunch? You could probably use a break.

>>43600319>>A.I'd like to accompany youAlthough training later would be good time permitting, ready to go monkey mountain with Konohamaru.
>>43600319>A.I'd like to accompany youAs if we would ever say no.
>>43600319>A.I'd like to accompany youWe need to work on combo moves with Nej. It's not just an excuse for more bro time
>>43600319>A. I'd like to accompany you.>C. Why don't you both come by my Uncle's for lunch? It can be our own small celebration for a solid blow against the Akatsuki. I can even go round up Sasuke and Haku.
>>43600375>>43600319Aww yeah. Supporting.
>>43600333Seconding this, our Uncle obviously has the best food in the city anyways>>43600319>A.I'd like to accompany you
>>43600480Suck it, Ichiraku Ramen. Then again, it makes sense that they wouldn't be doing as well. With Naruto being evil, they've lost something like 60% of their income.
>>43600375There's no way you could turn down an offer like that."I'd like to accompany you." you answer."Thank you, Kon." Itachi responds. "I know I can count on you and Neji.""Why don't we go to my Uncle's for lunch?" you suggest. "It can be our own small celebration for dealing a solid blow against Akatsuki.""That sounds wonderful." the Hokage smiles. "I'll be there in a few minutes once I wrap things up here."You, Neji, and Tsunade leave the Hokage's office, and Tsunade heads off, claiming to have some other business, leaving you with Neji."Shall we go straight there?" Neji asks. "Or did you want to invite someone else?">A.Go straight there>B.Go find someone>C.Other
>>43600567>A.Go straight there
>>43600567>B.Go find someoneThe rest of the team. Sasuke, Haku, and Tenzo. Assuming they're available.
>>43600567>B.Go find someone>Sasuke>Team Asuma>KakashiMaybe Tenzo if we can find him/Nej knows where he is.
>>43600567>>B.Go find someoneMy team and Asuma's team. Also Tenzo and Haku if they're free.
>>43600567>B. "I'll track down Sasuke, you track down Haku?"
>>43600586Supporting this, find the team.
>>43600567>B. I'll go grab Haku and Sasuke. Do you know where Tenzo might be?
>>43600567>B.Go find someoneKonohamaru
>>43600567Find the team that came with us, our old team, Haku, Tenzo, Konohamaru.
>>43600645>>43600638gotta have our little bro with us
Well, if you're having a celebration, it'd only be fitting to bring everyone involved."Let's just bring everybody who was on either team." you say. "I'll invite Konohamaru too.""I'll gather team Asuma and Haku, then." Neji responds. "You should be able to find the others. Captain Tenzo is likely pulling guard duty once more, but it might be worth seeing if he can join us."You first look for Konohamaru and find him at the training ground with his team. He gladly goes ahead, and his teammates silently thank you for granting them an extended break.Next, you head to Kiba's house to find him lounging with his girlfriend and Akamaru."Celebrate? Sounds like fun!" Kiba says. "You don't mind if Tamaki comes along, right?"You nod and Kiba gets up to lead the way to your Uncle's place, saying he'll catch you there.Next, seek out Sasuke. He's not at home, so you decide to check where Itachi said he's been recently. You find him coming out of the building where they hold prisoners."Huh? What's up, Kon?" he asks as he notices you. He seems a bit nervous. "Did you want to see me, or...?">A.We're celebrating a successful mission>B.Thought you'd need some company>C.You seem to be doing something>D.Other

>>43600877>>43600887>>43600902>>43600920>>43600961Even if Sasuke's not in the mood, it still can't hurt to make the offer. It might even help him cheer up."We're celebrating a successful mission." you explain. "Everyone's getting together at my Uncle's place for lunch. Lord Itachi's gonna be there, and team Asuma, Neji, Kiba, Haku. You want to join in?"Sasuke looks down for a second before looking back up with a smirk."Yeah, alright. I'll come along. I'm not going to be the only one left out."With that, Sasuke heads off.There's one more person to check. You go to the academy, your old classroom, where you expect to find Iruka Sensei. He'll be able to point you in the right direction.As you enter, you find that your job is in fact, a lot easier. In the room, you see Iruka Sensei doing paperwork while accompanied by Captain Tenzo, Anko, Sai, and the young Taiyaki.Tenzo is standing off to the side, as Anko and Sai are playing with Taiyaki."Hello Kon." Sai greets you as you enter. "Good to see you. Did you know babies will laugh at anything? I'm thoroughly enjoying myself."Sai goes back to playing with the baby, as Tenzo turns to you."Hey Kon. How's it going?" he greets. "You and Neji did a great job.">A.Invite him to celebrate>B.Ask him something>C.Ask someone else something>D.Other
>>43601206>A.Invite him to celebrateparty time

>>43601206>A.Invite him to celebrate>D.OtherAsk Anko if she has any time free later we could meet up to talk about what to do with Kusanagi. Whatever we do with the sword, whether it be hunt down the snake contract so we can use it, give it to her, or return it to the White Snake Sage, she'd be the one to consult on it.
>>43601240seconding>>43601206But I don't think it'd be wise to get Tenzo away from the jinchuuriki, especially when it's one of the only two the akatsuki need.
>>43601206>>A.Invite him to celebrate
>>43601206Invite him to celebrate.Not everyone. Only the people on the mission please.
GUYSWE NEED TO INVITE KAKASHI
>>43601313And Konohamaru and Kiba's girlfriend.
>>43601341Supporting for this, his entire squad was heavily involved with taking down two akatsuki and capturing important ninja.Sensei should come.

There might also be another solution."We were all going to celebrate the mission's success by getting lunch at my Uncle's place." you explain. "I wanted to know if you'd join us, Captain. If you need to keep an eye on Taiyaki, maybe you could all come along?""It is true that I can't abandon my post." Tenzo replies. "I'd like to join you, but it could only happen if Taiyaki was also there."Anko speaks up. "Celebrating Orochimaru's death, right? I see no reason not to come along for an occasion like that.""You go ahead Anko, I still need to finish my work here." Iruka says. "I'll see you at home.""I don't want to impose either. It's not really my place." Sai adds. "I'll just head home. See you later, Taiyaki."Sai waves at the infant as he leaves."Fine then. I still have plenty to celebrate anyway." Anko says, picking up her son. "Tenzo, let's go.""Right." Tenzo responds, as they make to leave. "We'll see you there, Kon."That's everybody you intended to bring. Unless you want to hit up someone else.>A.Nope, that's good>B.There is someone else>C>Other
>>43601446Though it would be funny if we forgot to invite him. Especially since Tenzo and Itachi were his subordinates in ANBU, too. All his students have forgotten about him.
>>43601530>B. KAKASHI SENSEI!
>>43601530>B.There is someone elseKakashi, but can we skip the scene where we pick him up and just go to the party?
>>43601530SENSEIBEANS MUST COMEBRING KASHI NO NOT THE HEALTH FOOD YOU FUCKS
>>43601530>B.There is someone elseKakashi.
>>43601642Nah, it'll be fine. It's a restaurant, we're customers, once you phrase it like that it's easy. I'm sure Uncle knows how to deal with large parties, and we bring him good business. Hell, keep this up and the restaurant is going to be THE place to go for Konoha's jonin.
>>43601530>B. There is someone elseif it hasn't already been done get Ten Ten to come.
>>43601530If he's hiding we just need to put his magazine under a box-and-stick trap.
>>43601549>>43601565>>43601604>>43601605>>43601607>>43601607Given that all of his students were involved, you feel like it wouldn't do to leave Kakashi Sensei out. You're able to track him down, and he joins you as you head to your Uncle's restaurant.As you enter, you see several tables pushed together to make one giant table, and everyone you've invited at it. However, there are also some familiar yet unexpected faces present."Keiji my friend, more of those gyoza!" your uncle Katsuki shouts. "And make sure not to go easy on the spiciness! I want to feel the burn!"Next to Katsuki, Deikida is wolfing down some food. She stops when she sees you enter."It's about time, Kon!" she yells. "We've been waiting for you all day!"It seems they finally got permission to visit the Leaf. Shizune and Shizuka are here as well. Itachi stands up."I want to thank everyone that made this mission a success. Please, enjoy yourselves to the fullest. I'll cover all the expenses."You and Kakashi Sensei take a seat and start eating. Everyone looks like they're having a great time.>Talk to someone (Who?)
>>43601799>Talk to Katsuki and Deikida. Ask them how things are at the stone.
>>43601799>Talk to someone (Who?)Katsuki and Deikida. Ask how they're liking Konoha, introduce them to our friends (though they probably have done so themselves by now), all that jazz.
>>43601799just have casual conversations with everyone, catch up with Kakashi, get to know Itachi and Kiba's girlfriend, get a bit of info about how things are travelling at the Stone from our other family.
>>43601858i'll second this
>>43601858Keep it calm for once, maybe ask Haku to teach us 1 hand seals this month
>>43601799>Catch up with Kakashi, gush a bit over the infants, chat some with Itachi about Sasuke when he was just a scrawny little kid (in earshot of him of course), attempt to vanish entirely when Uncle starts regaling EVERYONE with stories about us at that age, cheer on Katsuki when he takes on Asuma in a drinking contest, and of course, help out Uncle in the kitchen since it's such a large party.
>>43601972Sounds cosy as fuck.
>>43601972>gush at the infantTry to make explosive puns at him, he giggled
>>43601799Watch Kakashi closely, see if we can finally get a peak behind the mask.
>>43601799>>43601972I like this. I really like this.
>>43602084It's far better as a mystery. I know I wouldn't want to ruin the allure if I was QM'ing.
>>43601858You decide to try and get a little bit of conversation in with everyone.You start with Kakashi Sensei right next to you. You tell him all about the mission, and he listens intently."I won't lie Kon, I'm a bit jealous." your teacher admits. "That's quite the accomplishment you've made. Guarding Taiyaki was important, but a mission like you did is always quite an experience. I wish I had been able to see all of you in action. It's always different than seeing you while training."After catching up with Kakashi Sensei a bit, you greet your relatives."The stubborn old man finally let us come here!" Deikida laughs. "I wish he had relented sooner, this is great! Nothing ever happens at home, anyway!"She's eating quite an impressive amount for someone who can only use one hand. Her chopsticks are moving like lightning.Your uncles seem to get along exceedingly well. They look almost like old friends. Asuma also seems to fit in, and the three of them laugh as they drink and share stories.Kiba's putting most of his effort into entertaining his girlfriend, telling her about how heroic he was fighting a dangerous enemy ninja. Tamaki seems to humor him, and reacts with awe to his tale. You contribute a bit to the story, talking up your teams accomplishments. You chat with them for a bit before moving on.You find Anko and Shizune letting their sons fumble around together, and gush over the babies for a bit. Itachi comes over and starts talking about looking after Sasuke at that age, only for Sasuke to come and interrupt his story.You talk a bit with everyone as the afternoon goes on, and it seems like everyone has a great time. For a while, you head to the back to help your uncle with all the orders.After a couple of hours everyone is all celebrated out, and they start to get ready to leave. They all thank you and your uncle for hosting.>A.Talk to someone before they leave>B.See everyone off>C.Other
>>43602177Ruining it for you then.
>>43602195>B.See everyone off
See everyone off and bring some food to the prisoners
>>43602195>You find Anko and Shizune letting their sons fumble around together, and gush over the babies for a bit. Itachi comes over and starts talking about looking after Sasuke at that age, only for Sasuke to come and interrupt his story.>Ah, I remember when Sasuke was at that age. He might be a grouch now, but back then he was the>Sasuke: Grouchiest baby ever and never had any fun.>Itachi: Really? Because I remember you->Sasuke: No.>Itachi: ...I have pictures.>Sasuke: I will burn them.>>43602246Seconding this.
>>43602195>B. See everyone off.>C. Help Uncle clean up, then pack up some Goyza for the nice, cooperative prisoners.
>>43602246Voting against. Bringing food to the prisoners is a dumb move.
>>43602349Not how votes work dumbass.
>>43602377You're right, sorry. Let me reformat that.>>43602195>C.OtherLiterally anything other than bringing food to the prisoners.
>>43602349>Not wanting even the Akatsuki to hear of the fabled Karagowa gyoza.>Not wanting Deidara or Hidan to sneak into the village in plainclothes just to get a taste>Not wanting to convert them to THE PATH OF RIGHTEOUSNESS through the power of DELICIOUS HOMESTYLE COOKING!
>>43602377>waaah someone didn't like my stupid suggestion they're obviously a dumbass
>>43602431Literally not how votes work retard.
>>43602195>B.See everyone offThen go see the prisoners. Don't bring them food, though, that's something we should run by the interrogators before doing.
>>43602432This. Be a good nephew and show just enough kindness to hopefully convert them.
>>43602527>haha i bet he feels bad about being called a retard online
>>43602246You see everyone off as they leave. Most of them you'll see again soon, but Katsuki and Deikida are disappointed."It's a shame we can't stay long, but we'll try and come back when we can." Katsuki says. "Now that we've been, there's no way we aren't going to get as many meals here as we possibly can!""Don't forget to talk to your Hokage about teaming up to fight the Akatsuki!" Deikida insists. "If you forget, I just might have to shoot you with a cannonball."Your relatives head off, as do the rest of the guests. Everyone seemed like they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.Afterwards, you help your uncle clean up the restaurant before taking some of the remaining gyoza and putting them in a box. You plan on going to meet the prisoners, and if this can loosen them up, it's worth a shot.You head back to the building that they're being held in, and go inside. Recognizing you as a Jonin, the guards let you pass into the holding area.You find two adjacent cells, Hinata in one, Suigetsu and Juugo in the other."Hey, that smells good." Suigetsu gets up and walks toward the bars. "That for us? You shouldn't have."Suigetsu and Juugo both take a few gyoza and munch on them, while Hinata doesn't move."She's just feeling down still." Suigetsu tells you. "Just leave some here for her, she'll eat them later.

>>43602562>C.There is something I wanted you to tell meKabuto. They know where he'd go now that Orochimaru is dead?
>>43602562>B.You guys seem awfully cooperative
>>43602562>A.Just stopping byIf we're planning on getting their trust, we shouldn't ask anything thew first time we see them. Wait until the third or forth time after being nice and polite to them.
>>43602562>A.Just stopping by
>>43602562>D. A bit of both, actually. For one, Jugo, I was wondering...what exactly was up with that. When you transformed, you literally transformed. Different personality, axe hand, chakra jet boosters popping out of your back...there a story behind that?
>>43602562>A.Just stopping by>B.You guys seem awfully cooperative
>>43602562>A. Just stopping by.>D. And trying to drum up potential customers. I'm not gonna be leaving 'till I get the chopsticks and other stuff back, though. No offense.
>>43602603>>43602646third for interrogation master
>>43602562>A. Just stopping by.>D. "Hinata, I'm not sure what made the village so unbearable for you, but if there's something I can do, let me know. I'll be back with more soon."
>>43602599>>43602603>>43602615>>43602631>>43602646>>43602670>>43602670>>43602673>>43602685You don't want to put too much pressure on them this soon. If you can slowly get them to trust you, maybe they'll give you some information."Just stopping by." you reply. "You guys seem awfully cooperative.""Yeah well, we all got beat. Have to take it with grace, you know?" Suigetsu responds. "At least I got to try out that sword, even if it was just for a bit. It was enough to hold me over for now."Suigetsu seems like he could talk all day if you let him, so you cut him off before he goes any further. You leave some gyoza for Hinata to have later, and take the box back before leaving."Come back anytime!" Suigetsu calls after you. "I could always use company that's actually willing to make conversation!"You head home and relax for the rest of the evening. Your uncle tells you that he enjoyed having so many people over, despite how hectic it got."All those people celebrating your latest achievement!" he says. "If that's going to be happening on a regular basis, I'd say you've got it made! Katsuki was quite the character, too. Hope he comes again soon."You talk with your uncle for a bit longer before turning in for the night. It feels good to be back in your own bed again, and it doesn't take long for you to drift to sleep.>End of Chapter 43Busy with drill this weekend, so next thread will be on TuesdayTwitter is @LazeQMDo we have a consensus on those tech names, by the way?
Oh, just stopping by, oh yh sasori and orochimaru are dead. Stay cool and casual the whole time. So how'd you guys end up there anyways?
>>43602834I think Divine Aegis was pretty popular for the shield.
>>43602834There was only consensus for the shield. Strawpoll is necessary.
>>43602834If we go with what that one anon suggested before with the slightly weaker but more numerous shields, we should go with 7 Circles of Hell, to keep with the Divine/Devilish theme we decided on.
>>43602834>Impact Release: Name still TBD>A technique that lets you imbue your strikes with Impact chakra, causing shockwavesSmite>Impact Release: Name still TBD>A technique that creates a barrier out of Impact chakra, blocking attacks.

>>43602950>Divine>DivineWill our next tech be called Divine too?One name per tech, if we have two techs with similar names then it'll just be embarrassing.
>Impact Release: Name still TBD>A technique that lets you coat your body in Impact chakra, knocking back anything that hits you. High chakra consumption if sustained over long periodsDivine Retribution.
>>43602961Eh, then just change divine armour to Golden Fleece
>>43602993>divine armour to Golden FleeceI like it.
>>43603043>>43602993Is that something Kon would name it?
>>43602993Eh, I'd rather go with something from Asian mythology. How about the Sesshōseki, a stone that killed those that touched it? Would fit with the reactive armor aspect. It's also associated with the death of a fox, so it's appropriate if we use it to fight Naruto.
>>43603124That's even better!
>>43603086Maybe Kon is a secret westaboo who read a lot of books about the mysterious lands to the west.
>>43603086>Is that something Kon would name it?Whatever names we pick, Kon picks.So if we all agree on it, then yes.But >>43603124 has a better idea.
>>43603124Damn that's good.
>>43603124That's pretty neat.
>>43603124Fitting. Of course, if we do name it that, we will be contractually obligated to make sure this is the finishing blow against Naruto, or at least incredibly instrumental during that fight. I mean, you remember when we finally named Heavenly Lance, right?
>>43603189>you remember when we finally named Heavenly Lance, right?Not that Anon, but no.And we could name it that but not use it. It'd be a funny running gag.
>>43603189We can name the attack that kills him "Miura-no-suke". That was the name of the samurai that killed Tamamo-no-Mae, one of the most infamous kitsune in Japanese legend (and whose death curse created the Sesshōseki). Or we could name it Shinsho, after Genno Shinsho, the Buddhist monk who reportedly exorcised the Murder Stone of her evil influence and convinced her ghost to seek virtue.
>>43603247Daym son, I like it.
>>43603247>>43603124Are you the anon that suggested >>43597242, too?Because I'm liking all of these.
>>43603487Yeah. I'm kind of a mythology nerd. Only a dabbling interest, really, I'm no scholar, but I know enough to name things after myths. And the Kongō fits too well for us not to use. I think it would work well for any senjutsu techniques, since the Vajra is a pretty big symbol in Buddhism and so it makes sense for an enlightened sage to wield it. Plus, "Sage Art: Kongōsho" sounds pretty badass.
>>43603516You, I like you
Still a fan of Demon Wall
Just need figure out our absolute defence and our big bad ass attack.
>>43603704How about "Indrajit"? Name of a great warrior, given to him for defeating the god Indra. His birth name, Meghanada, means "thunder" and so is quite fitting for Kon. And his favored weapon was a invincible flying chariot infused with the all-destroying power of the Brahmashira Astra, so the name works for either defense or offense. Oh, and Indrajit could summon magic snakes, so if we do somehow get the snake contract it would be very appropriate.
You know the day Jon finally opens his eyes ever so slightly I just want them glowing white while wisps of green leave them (think of arthus eyes), then everyone knows suits about to hit the fan and whatever area he was in is rubble a second later and some godly instramentalcore is blacking in the background
>>43604168Autocorrect makes some strange sentences, huh?
Why don't we rebuild a good Akatski and take over the Rain Village, make it the centre of our combined forces ANBU? The village gets the cuisine of all the mains, becomes a trade centre and the operating base of the great Black Ops ninja every to walk the earth Blank steel Hunter nin mask, no headbands, black outfits and everyone is taught one handed jutsu
>>43604205Oh yeah :/ and randomly banned phone IPs
>>43604221Why not use the land of rice fields? Orochimaru is dead so we already got a vase area
>>43604253Rice fields has a better climate, as well. And we'd have more easily reachable food supplies.I don't think Black Ops is the best core for it, though. Seems more like a diplomacy/PR thing. Centre for Intervillage Cooperation or some such.
So, for the next month.We could learn Taijutsu from Lee/Guy, become an absolute fucking terror in melee combat.We could LEARN TO FLY LIKE A FUCKING EAGLE by applying a steady expulsion of impact chakra from points on our body using Neji's technique.We could just work with Neji to come up with a combination technique (my current idea is sending a stream of impact chakra through Neji ala Heavenly Lance except that he redirects it so that it hits in a line instead of a single point).We could learn additional medical ninjutsu from Tsunade.We could train with Sasuke without actually holding back. Fight him as furiously as we fought Orochimaru. That oughta get him out of his funk and be some good training too.We could perfect using Impact chakra to move quickly around the battlefield, may require additional training of reflexes to react properly at that speed.
>>43605951Oh, and we could also work on developing a means of sensing vibrations through our feet as a type of Sensory jutsu. Would probably only be rudimentary.Side note, when is Kakashi's birthday?We need to get him a signed Ichi Ichi style pocket watch. A fancy one. Because we said we'd buy him a fancy pocket watch so we could be even more upset whenever he was late.
