>>43711177PRAISE THE HOKAGE!
And there's Boruto quest, right on time
>>43711177To do list>Git gud at sword>Git gud at PUNCH (Involves potentially training with Lee)>Git gud at FLYING (Involves potentially practicing precise expulsion of chakra with Neji)>Git gud at sparring (Involves beating Sasuke's shit in, may need a Sannin standing by to stop the fight before someone dies)>Kiba needs to git gud (Involves no holds barred training with him and akamaru.)>Ask Tenten out on a date. Call it a date when you do.>Babysitting the Jinchuuriki
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxNCOajIvEM&index=3&list=PL4C928EAF7AA5B906After several days in the woods, and one on a stiff hospital bed, you can't help but sleep in a bit once you return to your own. You wake up after giving yourself an extra couple of hours, and head downstairs to eat breakfast. Your uncle seems to have anticipated the late awakening, and has only just started fixing your meal.You join him in the kitchen to help out, then quickly eat together before he has to get the shop ready for the day."I could barely believe it, Kon." your uncle tells you. "You've got so many great friends and colleagues, and you all looked like you were having a great time. That mission of yours really must have brought everyone's spirits up. Let me tell you, that's the dream right there. Good on you, kid."Thinking about it, this actually was the first time anyone's been able to deal any real damage to Akatsuki. It makes sense that everyone's excited, though you still have work to do.But not right now. You haven't been given any instructions on your return, and until you're given some, you have time to do as you wish. After finishing breakfast, you leave your house and think over what you want to do.>A.Go train on your own>B.Go meet up with somebody>C.Go see the Hokage, find out what to do now>D.Other
>>43711289>Ask Kurotsuchi out on a date. Call it a date when you do.There, corrected that for you.
>>43711308>>A.Go train on your own
>>43711308>Git gud at sparring (Involves beating Sasuke's shit in, may need a Sannin standing by to stop the fight before someone dies)I vote this. We didn't really push ourselves against Sasuke. We should.
>>43711308>C.Go see the Hokage, find out what to do nowIf he has nothing for us.>B.Go meet up with somebodyAsk Gai and/or Lee for help. We are going to develop our taijutsu to our limit.
>>43711308>>A.Go train on your ownCan't slack off. Tempting as it would be.>>43711289>>43711325Not even ten minutes in. I think that might be a new record in this quest.
>>43711308>B.Go meet up with somebodyHaku, one handed seals pls.
Go train with tsunade to be able to take care of itachi, ask shiz for extra pills to. Otherwise chill with sauske and provide conversation for sui
>>43711308>B.Go meet up with somebodyTrain with someone else.I don't remember if anyone is still injured. Lee and/or Neji for taijutsu training if they're up for it.
>>43711308>B.Go meet up with somebodySpar with Neji or Haku.
Get 1 handed seals from Haku
>>43711374I'm pretty sure Itachi is well taken care of, now that he's married to Shizune. Smart man, marrying a doctor capable of dealing with his health issues.
>>43711415That's why he's the hokage.
Pick up our gear from 10/10
>>43711308>B. Go see Lee
>>43711372>>43711386>>43711408Thinking over what kind of training you can do, and who you can train with, your mind drifts to Haku. You remember him performing one handed seals. Perhaps if he could teach you, you could use jutsu more efficiently.You head off to find Haku in his usual training spot, behind the Yamanaka's flower shop. He's swinging that giant sword with one hand again, as diligently as ever. He stops and takes a break as he notices you arrive."Hello, Kon." he greets you. "I had a wonderful time at the celebration last night. I must make my way to your uncle's restaurant more often. We don't seem to have any missions coming up, and the Hokage has given us some time to ourselves. Did you come to train with me? Ino is off with her mother today, so I wouldn't mind the company.">A.I wanted to learn how to make one handed seals>B.I just wanted a friendly spar>C.No, I just came to talk>D.Other
>>43711642>A.I wanted to learn how to make one handed seals
>>43711642>A. Sure. I was actually curious about those one-handed seals you were using. Do you think you could teach me?
>>43711642>A.I wanted to learn how to make one handed sealsBut i wouldn't mind a friendly spar
>>43711642>>A.I wanted to learn how to make one handed seals
>>43711642Could we ask him tips on swords too? He must've picked up a lot since he started training with it.
Please pick up our specialist made gauntlets
Learn 1 handed seals. Tell him to be on guard while we are away and tell the others, Naruto will come to rescue his pals I bet
>>43711642>B.I just wanted a friendly spar>A.I wanted to learn how to make one handed sealsBecause of course we'd like to learn from him, but even if we don't it would still be nice just to hang out with a cool dude like Haku. Wait, shit, that's an inadvertent pun, isn't it? Uh, okay, a rad dude like Haku. Yeah, there we go.>>43712012I don't think they're finished yet. I assume Tenten will contact us when they are.
>>43711663>>43711672>>43711698>>43711721>>43711726Haku seems to be in a good mood. Hopefully you can get him to teach you his secret."Sure thing, Haku." you tell him. "I was actually curious about those one handed seals you were using. Do you think you could teach me?"Haku puts his hand to his chin and thinks to himself for a bit."I suppose I might be able to." he muses. "I never really thought about it. I kind of just learned how to do it on my own. But I'll try."For the rest of the day, Haku tries to explain how one handed seals work. It's slow going, since he needs to think about it before he tells you, but you feel like you begin to understand.In theory, anyway. Channeling your chakra with only half of the usual seals is quite the endeavor, and it may take weeks until you get it down. But now that you get the concept, you can practice on your own in your spare time.As the afternoon drags on, Ino and her mother return with tons of flowers. Ino smiles and waves at the two of you, before a concerned look spreads over her face. She comes over to you."You two been training all day without eating, haven't you?" she accuses. "You can't keep doing that! Come on inside, and mom and I will get you something."Ino goes inside, and Haku looks to you."I've taught you what I can, I think you can manage on your own from here." Haku says. "You don't have to stick around if you don't want to, I'm sure there are many other things you want to do today.">A.Yeah, I have somewhere I want to go>B.It's fine, I was getting hungry anyway>C.Thanks, but we're not done training just yet>D.Other
>>43712082>>B.It's fine, I was getting hungry anyway
>>43712082>>B.It's fine, I was getting hungry anyway>C.Thanks, but we're not done training just yet"Show me what you've got Haku!"Liquid Ocelot mode.
>>43712082>B.It's fine, I was getting hungry anyway
>>43712082>B.It's fine, I was getting hungry anyway>D.OtherAnd thank Ino and her mother for their generosity.
>>43712082>B.It's fine, I was getting hungry anywayAfterwards we get our shit from Tenten.
Go chat with prisoners
>>43712082>B. It's fine, I was getting hungry anyways>D. Maybe someone else's food will help me appreciate my Uncle's more. (Lightly joking)
>>43712082>B.It's fine, I was getting hungry anyway>C.Thanks, but we're not done training just yet
>>43712082>>B.It's fine, I was getting hungry anywayFuel is needed.
>>43712134THIS, then prisoners
Holy shit, Kon is a protoss zealot! Shield and gauntlets to channel energy blades
>>43712219Considering how we fight, I'd think we're more of a jetbike + spider mine guy.
>>43712082>>B.It's fine, I was getting hungry anywayDiscuss sword training!
>>43712430We use staves anon
>>43712102>>43712109>>43712118>>43712119>>43712126>>43712134>>43712144>>43712147>>43712152Well, you do have some other things you want to do, but you can't ignore this hospitality. Or your stomach."It's fine, I was getting hungry anyway." you tell Haku.The two of you go inside, and take a seat around the table as Ino and her mother fix some food for you and Haku.They bring it out and sit with you."Thank you for your generosity Ino, Mrs. Yamanaka." you say, before you begin eating."Oh, think nothing of it." Ino's mother responds. "Ino's always been bringing friends over, she's just a social butterfly. But Haku's friend coming over is a rare occurrence. It's a shame, he's such a nice young man. I hear you and your teammates were the ones who helped him out and brought him here. I have to thank you, it's been wonderful to have him here, he's like the perfect son I never had. So diligent and compassionate.""Talk about a stroke of luck huh, mom?" Ino adds. "No doubt the best thing that's ever happened to us."Haku looks almost embarrassed to hear himself talked about like that. Despite usually staying calm at Ino's comments, he must not be used to flattery like that from her mother.You are just about finished with your snack.>A.Finish eating and go>B.Stay and chat>C.Finish and continue training with Haku>D.Other
>>43712082>A. Yeah, I have somewhere I want to go.Let's go see Tenten. Also, correct me if I'm reading too much into this, but is he subtly telling us to leave so he can eat with Ino?
>>43712538He lives with Ino, I don't think he's hurting for private time
>>43712535>C.Finish and continue training with Haku
>>43712535>A.Finish eating and goWell that's just adorable, Haku. Have fun.
>>43712535>A. Finish eating and go.>D, Suggest you and Haku meet up and spar sometime.
>>43712535>>A.Finish eating and goOkay. This is awkward.Let us flee from the awkward.
> I hear you and your teammates were the ones who helped him out and brought him here.Yeah, we had beaten the fuck out of him and almost forced him to see his father figure be killed by our sensei. Thus we became friends.
>>43712483Actually we use a knife on a rope.When did we get a staff? Is it a retractable one that can split apart and become two escrima sticks? I'm totally down for going all Storm Nightwing on people.
>>43712535>AGo talk to sauske and Kiba, bro hang time. On the way get our stuff from tenten.
>>43712535>C.Finish and continue training with HakuSword vs Staff!
>>43712718>>43712483What Staff are you guys talking about? You mean Monkey King Enma?
>>43712696It is, actually. Enma, the boss summon of the monkeys, can turn into a copy of the Monkey King's staff. Makes for a really powerful weapon due to being able to change its size and mass at will, and can split apart into multiple staves at once. We haven't really learned to wield it yet, though, since we don't quite have enough chakra to summon Enma as a main weapon all the time. It's part of the plan for later on down the line.
>>43712765You know what we do have tho? That other sword from Gato's men.Y'know the one we stole the hat from?The other one we gave to Sasuke right?
>>43712535A. Let's see the ol team. We should spar with them, see how they compare
Why do we still carry around the regular Katana when we have the kusanagi sword?
>>43712908Because we still need to give it to Anko.
>>43712908Because we just got that and haven't been on a mission since. Also because we're divided on what to do with it.
>>43712623>>43712632>>43712646>>43712711You decide to finish eating and excuse yourself here."Thank you for the meal." you say once more, as you bow to Ino's mother. "Haku, let's spar sometime.""Of course, Kon." Haku replies. "I'll be willing to help you anytime."Ino and her mother wave and wish you farewell as you leave the Yamanaka residence.You decide to check on your order, and go to the weapon shop. Tenten isn't there, but by talking to her mother, you learn that your gauntlets should be ready for you in three weeks.Afterwards, you leave the weapon shop and consider your options for this evening.>A.Go hang out with somebody>B.Spend the rest of the day training alone>C.Go home early>D.Go see the Hokage>E.Other
>>43712928Fuck off, Orochi-senpai gave it to us, not Anko.
>>43712970>B.Spend the rest of the day training alone
>>43712970>D.Go see the HokageI dunno why, I just wanna.
>>43712755I mean, some of the voices in my head WERE telling me to buttrape him right there, but they were way too few in numbers. So we just restrained him and brought him back home after throwing a knife in an old man's head.
>>43712970>>B.Spend the rest of the day training alone
>>43712970>A. Go see Kiba and Sasuke. Seriously, when was the last time you three trained together?
>>43712973He gave it to us because he knew we wouldn't be able to use it properly. It was him taunting us.
>>43712970>D.Go see the HokageAnd then>E.Spend the rest of the day and the night training with Gai and Lee. SPRINGTIME OF YOUTH MOTHERFUCKER!
>>43712970>>B.Spend the rest of the day training aloneWe really need to get back on our speed training.
>>43713064>Speed TrainingSTRAP AS MANY WEIGHTS AS WE CAN. On our legs, our arms, our body, our neck, our waist, our feets, our head, everywhere!
>See Boruto quest>Scroll down for leaf village quest>mfw its on too
>>43713115The Takeshi/Kon team up is inevitable.Naruto has shown cross-dimensional travel is possible.It's gonna happen, goddamnit. Even if I have to write it in a fanfic myself!
>>43712970Go see Kiba and Sasuke
They said a month over 4 weeks ago?
>>43712970>A. Go hang out with Kiba and Sasuke. Train like hell.
>>43712992>>43713004>>43713064You decide to take the rest of the day to yourself. You head out to the training area and continue working on one handed seals.Though more complicated jutsu may take a while, you feel like you're already close to using basic jutsu with a single hand. That couldn't take more than a few days of practice.You also try to practice increasing your speed again. You're fast, but you haven't gotten much faster since you trained under Sarutobi Sensei. From the bingo book entry, your mother apparently had incredible speed too, so it only seems appropriate. You train, but it will take quite some time to increase your speed by a significant amount. You'll have to keep a regimen up.As it starts to get dark, you head back home. You eat dinner with your uncle, then get to bed.As you leave your house the next morning, you see a giant toad outside of the Hokage's office. Not a common occurrence these days. Something may be up.>A.Go to the Hokage's office>B.It's not your business, go train>C.Look for someone>D.Other
>>43713321>A.Go to the Hokage's office
>>43713321>A.Go to the Hokage's officeHow giant a toad are we talking here? Size of a dog, size of a horse or size of a building?
>>43713321>B.It's not your business, go trainI mean, the Hokage likes us and all, but we can't be barging into his office whenever we feel like it.
>>43713199They said a couple of months
>>43713321>A.Go to the Hokage's officeGod I hope Jiraiya isn't dead.
>>43713321>>A.Go to the Hokage's office
>>43713321>A. Go to the Hokage's office>D. Go there in one Impact-enhanced leap into the air.
>>43713321>>A.Go to the Hokage's officeNot dead, then. Maybe.
>>43713357>>43713372>>43713385>>43713402>>43713412>>43713417https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8rQ6JFZ4hQ&list=PL4C928EAF7AA5B906&index=16You get the feeling that you want to know what's happening. Even if it's nothing, the Hokage may have something for you, anyway.You go inside the building, and Izumo and Kotetsu let you into the office without issue.When you arrive, you find several people inside. There is Itachi behind his desk, Sasuke, Neji, and Tsunade. Tsunade is treating a fifth person. It's Lord Jiraiya, with one less arm than you saw him with last."Heh, another visitor?" the Fifth grunts. "Does the whole village have to learn about my sorry state?">A.Ask what happened>B.Ask if Lord Jiraiya will be okay>C.Stay silent>D.Leave>E.Other
>>43713417This, make it elegant
>>43713627>A.Ask what happened>B.Ask if Lord Jiraiya will be okay>e. The Rinnegan user did this?
>>43713627>E.Other"Giant toads tend to attract attention."
>>43713627>E. "See, this is why you don't go off on your own, doesn't matter how confident you are." Fuss over him alongside Lady Tsunade.
>>43713627>A.Ask what happened>B.Ask if Lord Jiraiya will be okayHe survived aw yesssProbably because unlike canon jiraiya this one had responsibilities still and stayed strong Come end game naruto unless we get some cosmic descendant stuff the fights will be much more of a group thing than naruto+sasuke vs the world
>>43713627"Thought maybe I could lend a... well, you know."
>>43713652>>43713627This. Also, holy shit he's alive! That's going to make this way easier
>>43713704Start with this, definitely start with this
>>43713627TIME FOR THE ARM JOKES.>Who disarmed you lord Jiraiya?>Do you need a hand? >I guess your all right now.
>>43713742Somewhere, Sai just came.
>>43713627"Apparently so.">>A.Ask what happened
>>43713704>>43713742Time to make it onto Jiraiya's shit list.
The only thing really keeping us from end game level is fountains of endless chakra. What lets sauce boss do all his bullshit? Naruto makes sense, but not sauce man.
>>43713627>E. You realize what I have to do now, right?>You could have stopped it. You could have taken someone with you and avoided this whole mess. But now...>>43713742 This
>>43713807Laughter is the best medicine.It's very...handy.
>>43713742The first two are weak as shit, but the third one is a thing of beauty.
>>43713627Ask tsunade if she wants a hand healing. Otherwise ask sauske if he wants to fill us in?
>>43713829Totally should summon Enma to berate Jiraiya for going off on his own like that.
No jokes way outta character
>>43713809I always figured it was some Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan thing. Like it's magnifying his yin energies or something like that, to fit with Naruto's huge chakra supply being because he's full of yang.
>>43713921Alright then. When someone says we're being a bit insensitive or inconsiderate, we can go on a small schpiel about how he's inconsiderate for going off half-cocked against the Akatsuki like a moron, risking himself (one of the Leaf's greatest ninja) in some personal mission against them.
>>43713921It's a joke, mate. We don't have to be blandly agreeable all the time.
>>43713915I'm sure Shima and Fukasaku already did that. They were probably with him at the time, berating him all the way through the fight for being so reckless.
>>43714013I do hope one of them didn't die for Jiraiya to live.
>>43713999Weren't you aware? "Bland" is Kon's defining characteristic.
>>43713652>>43713684>>43713689>>43713709>>43713786"I just came to lend a... well, you know." you stop yourself from making any jokes in poor taste. "Is Lord Jiraiya going to be okay, Tsunade Sensei?""He'll live." Tsunade tells you. "But he's taken quite a beating. He's not at the age where he can just shrug that off. Not to mention the arm. This is what you get, Jiraiya! You shouldn't have gone off on your own!""Yeah, I get it." the Fifth responds. "It won't happen again. Whether I like it or not.""What happened, Lord Jiraiya?" you ask. "Did the Rinnegan user do this?""He calls himself Pain." the Fifth begins. "We thought Hanzo was still running the Rain, but it's a ruse. They all worship this "Pain". As for his true identity, I'm pretty sure it's my old student Nagato. But "Pain" consisted of six men moving in tandem, and none of them looked like Nagato. There may be more that I didn't see.">A.Ask more about Pain>B.Ask how he plans to fight Pain next time>C.Ask something else>D.Other
Eating dinner guys, back in a while
>>43714107>A.Ask more about Pain>B.Ask how he plans to fight Pain next time>D. Could he been have controlling them somehow then? The Rinnegan is an unknown after all.
I always imagined Kon as appearing cool and calm on the outside but if you looked into his mind even Jiraiya would blush. For all we know he could be a hardcore masochist, he uses the barriers not for his safety but yours
>>43714107>C.Ask something else"Can you tell us more about the Rinnegan? Maybe it allows him to move six people in tandem with one another? It would be like the Yamanaka clan's ability. A mental merge of some sort."
>>43714107>D.Other"Maybe he was controlling them from a distance, then? I know that some of the genjutsu cast with the Sharingan make the target look like they have it, it could work the same way for the Rinnegan. He might be able to hole up perfectly safe while he sends mind-controlled servants to do his business."
>>43714107>C.Ask something else"You confirmed he/they were working with Akatsuki, though?"
>>43714107>>A.Ask more about Pain"Remote fighter, then. Six disposable bodies, so he can fight without any risk to himself. Lure them out, then go after the source."
There's a chance it still is nagato, using a puppet like technique? How did they work together well enough to do this to you of all people
We need to tell Itachi that the leaf is in danger, we have prisoners, information on pain and the three tails. We need to act fast and be ready. They will come for us and likely when the kage is away. We need to move the kid and prisoners the fewer whom know the better
So it's not out of character knowledge for us to assume that they're being remotely controlled, right? I mean, Sasori was just killed, so we're already primed to think in terms of puppets. Even if they looked like people, we know that corpse puppets are a thing. I don't think it would even be too far a leap to go to "those weird piercings let him puppet them at long distance without chakra wires", and figure out that trick, too. At the very least that's less of a stretch to assume than "they're the congealed dying will of Uchiha Madara except not really because they're actually the hidden third son of the elder demon Kaguya (who was really an alien) who tricked Madara into thinking he created them as part of their plan to revive their mom".
>>43714542I think we'd have a few good ideas but let's go with this one mostly. Don't wanna meta but this response is actually good and makes sense
>>43714150>>43714186>>43714226>>43714266>>43714310>>43714407You think over what Lord Jiraiya has said. If Pain really is Nagato, then he may have some way of controlling people from a distance."Lord Jiraiya, We don't know exactly what the Rinnegan is capable of." you start. "Nagato may have a way to control those bodies remotely, like puppets. What else could he do?""You may be right. Those bodies were all people I encountered before." the Fifth says. "Among them was one of my other students, Yahiko. Through his body, Pain said Yahiko was dead. Perhaps it is in fact Nagato controlling their corpses. I wasn't able to see all of them in action, though. I fought only three of them myself. One could absorb chakra, like Kurotsuchi saw, and one could summon several creatures to fight. I didn't see what the third one did, but they could all coordinate their senses. If one of them could see something, they all could. And when I defeated them, they were revived, likely by one of the three I didn't fight. He's a tough customer, and I probably didn't even see all that he's capable of.""We may yet learn more from the body you retrieved, Lord Jiraiya." Itachi speaks up. "We're just glad you've returned alive. We were all worried about you, you know.""I honestly didn't expect you to return, Master." Sasuke speaks harshly. "I thought you would put too much stock into the sage's prophecy, and let yourself think you failed. I'm glad you didn't let it get to you."The Fifth smirks. "So you knew about that, huh?">A.What prophecy?>B.Tell Itachi about your concerns>C.Ask how you'll all deal with Pain>D.Other
>>43714874>A.What prophecy?>B.Tell Itachi about your concerns
>>43714874>B.Tell Itachi about your concerns
>>43714874>>B.Tell Itachi about your concerns
Holy shit let's try to steal a rinnigan for Us! Even if it only gives us the power of a single path it'll be well worth it
>>43715237At the very least when we kill Nagato remove the eyes. We don't have to destroy them, but for God's sake don't leave them with the corpse. Hide that shit.
>>43714907>>43714908>>43714987>>43714988>>43714997The mention of a prophecy makes you curious, but there's more urgent matters to discuss right now. You turn to the Hokage."Lord Itachi, I'm concerned about the Leaf." you say. "We have prisoners, information on Pain, and the three tails here. We're a huge target. They will likely attack while you are away next month. We need to take some precautions.""I understand, Kon." the Sixth starts. "Though we have tried to keep the three tails Jinchuuriki a secret, we have no way of knowing if it's actually been kept. Regardless, the first two factors are enough to make us a target. It may in fact be best to move Taiyaki and the prisoners for the duration of the summit. However, if they do attack the village and too many of my elite ninja are gone, the village may certainly be forfeit. A delicate balance may have to be achieved. We have some time to prepare before the summit.""I will take this time to train at Mount Myoboku." Sasuke announces. Jiraiya looks at him incredulously. "I will undergo the sage training. With it, no enemy will be beyond me. Not Pain, not Naruto.""I don't think you have what it takes to finish that training yet." Jiraiya chuckles. "But I'd like to see you try.""We also have gathered some more information on Akatsuki." Neji finally speaks. "We just might have time in this month to track another two of them down.">A.I want to use this time to train as well>B.If we can deal more damage to Akatsuki, then we should>C.Getting a plan together to protect the prisoners and Taiyaki is our top priority>D.I have something else I want to do before this month is up>E.Other

>>43715325>C.Getting a plan together to protect the prisoners and Taiyaki is our top priorityI want to vote for training senjutsu or taking out more Akatsuki. But ultimately this is more important.
>>43715325>A.I want to use this time to train as wellbut>>C.Getting a plan together to protect the prisoners and Taiyaki is our top priorityI want to go to Monkey Mountain. But the kid, at least, is more important.
>>43715325>C.Getting a plan together to protect the prisoners and Taiyaki is our top priority
>>43715325A monkey mountain
>>43715325>BThey will come to us Neji, use this information to have counter measures for each, spread this information as far as you can. Sauske take the three tails with you while you train until the summit is overAs for the prisoners, we know Naruto will likely come for them, have a trap ready.Akatski have a method of entering and leaving with no trace, up security like mad, I want seniors pulling triple shifts dammit. Call in shikamaru favour help us founder the Akatski.Finally no one besides us must know the location of the three tails or its all over, we Jeep our training going. Good luck gentlemen
Sorry guys, I have to run some errands, back in a few minutes
>>43714559I want us to say all this and be told we are fucking insane.
>>43715452Go for something like this, except I'd suggest we leave poor seniors alone, did you mean sensors by any chance?
>>43715452Shit I meant >C
>>43715325A. Money mountainE. I want a rinnegan
>>43715325E. Can tsunade implant a rinnegan into us?
>>43715730I think we should go to monkey mountain while everyonevelse does >>43715452 Ask if we can have the rinnigan
>>43715786>>43715730>Wanting eye bullshit.
Sure why not throw the thought out there if they could put the rinnegan into us? For science
>>43715834They have better candidates than us to put the rinnegan into.
>>43715849Yeah, but we are the protagonist. Well sorta
>>43715866Relevance? Unless we lose an eye, there's not much to justify getting rinnegan hax.
>>43715866It would not be very in character for the Leaf to put the most powerful kekkei genkai into the head of somebody that's not their greatest fighter.Laze would live up to his name if he let you metacunts get away with anything close to that.at least wait until we're strong as fuck.
>>43715939We all don't need meta to know the enemy will destroy it given the chance, the Hyuga do it all the time. Grab it now while it's there or loose the chance forever
>>43715809IMPACT EYESSHOOTING IMPACT ENERGY FROM OUR EYES
>>43715939Also, I don't think anyone will respond very well if we call dibs on an enemy's organs. I imagine that's the sort of thing Konoha tries to discourage in its ninja from an early age.
>>43715362>>43715372>>43715378>>43715594>>43715637You think on what to do. Sasuke's declaration has made you eager to go off on training of your own, but you can't just leave the village that easily when you could help."As much as I want to train as well, getting a plan together to protect the prisoners and Taiyaki is our top priority." you say. "Akatsuki will come to us and we need to be ready. Naruto will likely come after the prisoners, so we can set a trap. Then we have to make sure Taiyaki is in a completely safe place that no one knows about. Maybe with Sasuke to Mount Myoboku? They wouldn't be able to get there.""Naruto won't come after them." Sasuke says as you finish. "They say they'll see him after Akatsuki accomplishes its goal. They have no intention of going anywhere until then. They trust Naruto implicitly. Setting a trap with them is a waste of time.""So you say Sasuke, but we can't be entirely sure. It may just be a bluff." Itachi responds. "As for your idea Kon, as secure as a land of summon creatures may be, I don't exactly think that sending an infant there will go over well with his parents. Though we might work something out. Anyway, if you want to train in this time, I would insist that you do. For all we know, you could not get another chance for a while. I'll let you take the day to think on it.""Yeah, I'm out of here." Jiraiya announces as he gets up. "I need some rest. I'll see you tomorrow for that training, Sasuke."Jiraiya leaves with Tsunade in tow, and everyone else follows suit, leaving Itachi to his work. You're standing outside the Hokage's office with Neji and Sasuke.>A.Talk to Neji>B.Talk to Sasuke>C.Go find someone else>D.Go somewhere>E.Other
Also don't know why you guys were thinking you could call dibs on the Rinnegan
>>43716081Good point laze,We should also call no-callbacks
>>43716045>B.Talk to Sasuke
>>43716045>A.Talk to Neji>B.Talk to Sasuke
>>43716045>>A.Talk to Neji>>B.Talk to Sasuke
>>43716045>C.Go find someone elseGo find Konohamaru and get prepped to go to Monkey Mountain
>>43716081Ninjas don't honor the dib system? Our new ninja way should be the way of dibs
Well given that I think Monkey Mountain is the way ahead, though only if we keep up 1 handed training to. Tell Itachi we will go there, but first ask if he thinks those eyes can be implanted. At beat we have a powered down path ability at worst we are apart for the enemy net and can see what they see while we keep ours covered
>>43716045>C.Go find someone elseEnma. Tell him that look, we get that he wants to honor Hiruzen's memory by teaching Konohamaru, but insisting that the only way we'll get training from him is with Konohamaru is dumb. The kid's great, we love him, but we need this more. Konohamaru's a genin, he's not going to be involved with any of the threats we're going to get thrown at. So just teach us now, and we can make up for it to Konohamaru after Akatsuki are dealt with.
>>43716081Ah ok Laze I'm, >>43716155 so ignore my rinnegan part
>>43716155I think you're confused, anonIf you removed the eyes from the body Jiraiya brought back, they'd be normal eyes
>>43716155You mean the ones in the dead Path of Pain? Those aren't real Rinnegans, without Nagato to channel his chakra through them they're just normal eyes. It's just an aesthetic effect to him controlling someone, all the powers are still back in the main body and just channeled to the Paths.
>>43716136Second. Monkey Mountain Konohamaru, Monkey Mountain!
>>43716175Konohamaru is a Chunin
>>43716251Oh, I must have missed that. Well, congratulations, Konohamaru. My point stands, though.
>>43716251did we ever give(order for) him and his team the chakara metal weapons?
>>43716136Fourthing this. Let's monkey mountain.
>>43716319No but we should before we leave. With the team name on.... Also Knuckles for rock Lee one says green the other says beast, he may be able to push his chakra into them even if he can't use jutsu for shit
>>43716359Are we slowly gonna arm everyone? It'll take a few years but would be worth it
>>43716136This is the best opportunity you'll get to train with Enma. You should take it.You say goodbye to Neji and Sasuke as the three of you part ways, then go to search for Konohamaru. You find him at the same training ground as before, drilling his teammates again.Ebisu is also here, but he seems content to let Konohamaru handle things."Come on you two, Chunin exams are in two months, you guys don't want to get shown up, do you?" he shouts.He turns to greet you as you approach."What's up, bro?" Konohamaru asks with a smile. "That party was great!"You tell Konohamaru about your intention to train under Enma for the next month, and he gets excited."Finally! I've been waiting for this!" he flails his arms a bit. "This is going to be so cool! I'll go get my stuff!"Before anyone can tell him otherwise, he runs off back home. His teammates stop their training and look around in confusion before receiving directions from Ebisu and heading off. Ebisu comes over to you."I take it you and the young master will be training together?" he asks. "I know he's stronger than I realize, but please take care of him. I'm counting on you."After giving you his approval, Ebisu leaves. It seems there's no issue on Konohamaru accompanying you.You still have the rest of the day before you.>A.Train alone>B.Go find somebody>C.Go somewhere>D.Other

Go and talk to the prisoners, last chance for a while, poor Sui must be going mad. Talk about why he wants the swords, which leads to talking about kisume then to akatski and finally to Naruto. Make it clear we actually have nothing against him since heading out to blow the world up.Maybe chat to Hinata ask how's she's been?
>>43716700Oh yeah, I like that. Tell Juugo and Suigetsu we're going on a training trip and won't be able to visit them for a while. Hinata can go hang, though.
>>43716614>>B.Go find somebody>tentenWe have seen her in a bit.
>>43716700Have a word with the prisoners, maybe even ask them that if they see Naruto again before us we wanna have a chat, not a fight, a chat
>>43716954 >oh hey guys, if Naruto destroys the Leaf Village and helps you guys escape, can we have a bit of a chat with him? Doesn't need to come to blows!
>>43716980Pretty much, though that ain't his style from what we have seen
>>43716646>>43716682>>43716692>>43716845Since you'll be gone for a while, you decide to see everybody before you go.You stop by Kiba's place to find him chilling with his girlfriend again. You tell him that both you and Sasuke are going off for training for a month."What?" Kiba shouts as he gets up. "Aw man, it's the Chunin exam finals all over again!""Maybe you should be more serious with your training instead of using any excuse to slack off, Kiba." Tamaki laughs."Fine then!" Kiba growls. "Just you wait, Kon! You and Sasuke can't just disregard me! I'll train hard too!"You leave and go see Tenten next. She's in the weapon shop today. You tell her about the training too."Really, now?" Tenten rubs her chin. "One month of training? Well, I'm close to a breakthrough, I can feel it. I just might be ready to show you the results of my own training by the time you get back. Look forward to it!"Afterwards you think of seeing off your uncle, but he's at home. If there's anything else you'd like to do today, it'd be good to do it now.>A.Go see the prisoners>B.Go see someone else>C.Go home>D.Other
>>43717026No, his style is to betray humanity because some people gave him mean looks when he was a kid. Wow, is this Naruto a shitty person. He might act like a nice an understanding guy, but he's scum.
>>43717051>B.Go see someone elseKakashi.
>>43717051>B.Go see someone elseKakashi and Haku.
>>43717051>A.Go see the prisoners
>>43717051>>B.Go see someone elseKakashi-san
>>43717062I think you're overreactingI mean, I don't think he actually thinks he's betraying humanity, plus who knows what Obito got into his head
Warn kakashi and Haku of what's up but go chat with the prisoners
>>43717162He thinks one of two things. The first possibility is that he thinks what Obito lets the majority of Akatsuki think, that the Ten Tails is going to be used as a superweapon to convince people to be nice to each other by nuking everyone every time there's war. That makes him a horrid tyrant, and therefore has betrayed humanity. The second possibility is that he thinks the truth, that the Ten Tails is going to be used to trap everyone in an eternal dream while their souls are slowly digested to give power to the Ten Tails' jinchuriki. In which case he's conspiring to kill everyone in one of the most horrifying way possible, and therefore has betrayed humanity. Either way, he's planning on causing huge amounts of death and destruction all because he got some glares when he was a kid.
>>43717292Nobody knows the truth about the ET though
>>43717316Okay, fine, so there is a middle ground of "thinks he's trapping everyone in an eternal dream in which free will is an illusion". Which is still betraying humanity.
>>43717073>>43717099>>43717117You have one other person you want to see. You seek out Kakashi Sensei, and find him at the grave of ninja killed in action. You've only seen him here a couple of times, but apparently it's part of his usual routine. He must have the names of some important people on there, but you've never heard him talk about it."Oh, Kon. How are you?" Kakashi asks as he notices you. "Quite the celebration the other day. You deserved it, though. You've already grown into quite a capable shinobi."You tell your teacher about your plans for the month. He seems unfazed."Just going to keep moving up aren't you, Kon?" he muses to himself as he looks back at the grave. "I guess you boys have got your own things going on now. I really had fun being you guys' teacher, you know. Before then, I was just a wreck. I had lost too many people, and wasn't willing to get close to anybody. I like to think that you kids helped me as much as I helped you."Kakashi turns back, and you can see the smile beneath his mask."Good luck, Kon." he says. "I know you'll keep surprising me with how strong you get. After all, you've got things to protect."It's getting late at this point, so you head home.Over dinner, you tell your uncle about your training."Oh, I'm used to it by now." he says. "You just keep going, I don't mind. The stronger you get, the better! You're doing us all proud!"After eating, you go up to your room and get your things together, then get to bed.Starting tomorrow, the next phase of your training begins.>End of Chapter 44Next thread is on FridayTwitter is @LazeQM
>>43717351>free will>not an illusion
>>43717489Thanks for running, Laze. See you Friday.
>>43717514More of an illusion than usual, I mean.
>>43717489Thanks for running Laze!Looking forward to going Super Saiyan 4 Monkey Sage.
>>43716081Everyone knows about the international dibs protocol. And the no-take-backs accords.
So have the leaf mind interrogated the prisoners
Out of interest Laze yay back if we chased Naruto instead of Orochimaru would bee have been caught? What did we change as it were? Only asking cos it's in the past now and wanted to know what could have happened Last question Laze who is Ur personal favourite girl?
>>43718306They haven't yet because they are answering all questions as they're askedThey will once they are given a reasonThis is all standard protocol>>43718529You would have gotten btfo honestly, but you might have come out with a bit more info on NarutoThey wouldn't have been able to capture Bee, but they would have escapedTemari
>>43718838This is me, forgot name field
Cheers Laze have a great night
>>43718855So, what ranks are everyone? Who's Chunin and who's Jonin?
>>43722260Kon is the only Jonin, everyone else is ChuninExcept SasukeAlso Neji doesn't have a rank as an ANBU, but he'd be a Jonin
>>43724692Shikamaru isn't Jonin yet? I'm...surprised.
>>43724692So Kiba got laid right? Right?
>>43724727No, but if it wasn't for you, they'd have needed to promote him alreadySo basically your existence is delaying his promotion>>43724749Yes
>>43725376Kiba got laid! Who is next anons? Kon must wingman!
>>43725376...can we retcon saying Shikamaru should be put on the planning committee?
