First for happy birthday Laze
>>43952287Second for one less year of life.
>>43952287Happy birthday Laze, mine's in 5 days so I'll celebrate mediocrity with you
Three cheers for 'I'm Writing Magic Ninja Fanfiction on My Birthday' Laze.
>>43952287one year closer to deathHuzzah!
>>43952361One step above 'I'm reading ninja fanfic on my birthday'...I'm gonna kill myself brb ಥ_ಥ
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqjdtR1Po-E&index=23&list=PL4C928EAF7AA5B906You prepared yourself for this, but it's daunting nonetheless. You stand in a room that seats the five people that sit at the top of the ninja world.The Sixth Hokage. The Third Tsuchikage. The Fourth Kazekage. The Fourth Raikage. The Fifth Mizukage.The five ninja leaders sit at a U-shaped table, each with their bodyguards standing directly behind them. Across from the table, the host Mifune sits alone. He has just given the Raikage the floor, and you listen intently."By this point, we all know of the threat Akatsuki poses." the Raikage begins. "The Leaf has been attempting to create joint operations between villages in order to take Akatsuki down. Now, I understand that we will all likely not rest until Akatsuki is defeated. Given that, I will ignore the use of Akatsuki's services by the other villages, and Akatsuki's composition of ninja from all of your own villages. The only known tailed beast that remains out of Akatsuki's grasp is the eight tails, am I correct?"As all of the other Kages nod, the Raikage shoots Itachi a glare before continuing."I have no doubt that we can defeat Akatsuki. But I have also looked at the long term. The military power of the five ninja villages has drastically declined after losing their Jinchuuriki. The villages that retain Jinchuuriki will have a significant edge. Though I admit that includes my own, it was merely circumstance. Were there a village that kept a Jinchuuriki from Akatsuki in secret, they could be considered as intentionally attempting to throw off the balance of power. Say for instance, if a village gained possession of a tailed beast in without the knowledge of the other villages."You think you know where this is going. The Mizukage has been burning a hole into Itachi with her glare, and you doubt it's due to his good looks.>continued
>>43952454Because it's not like they only had their jinchuriki to start with because Hashirama gave them the Tailed Beasts as a sign of good faith. The current power balance exists because Konoha wants it to, and that's always been the case.
>>43952542And more to the immediate point, the other tailed beasts were known. When Naruto left the village, Konoha was considered devoid of Jinchuuriki. A non-target. No reason for the akatsuki to waste resources on it.In other words, the perfect place to hide a Jinchuuriki.
Happy Birthday Laze! And we even invited all the Kages!
Wasn't that the same tailed beast that they stuck in Kakashi's waifu? They don't get to bitch if we keep it after they gave it to us. Even if they did intend to use her as a suicide bomber
>>43952620And they brought accusations of dickery.
>>43952661That's just kage's pre-negotiating about the cake. They just want bigger slices and they're gonna leverage with their accusations, dont worry about it.
Happy birthday Laze
>>43952454"And if so, who is to say that said village would not continue to do so after the tailed beasts are released from Akatsuki's control?" the Raikage goes on. "They could gather all of the tailed beasts before anyone could have a say otherwise. Swipe them right out from under our noses. Well, you had best all be prepared. Because it is already underway. The Mizukage has come to me with evidence that the three tailed beast was sealed not by Akatsuki, but by the Leaf! And unsurprisingly, the shifty eyed Uchiha refuses to tell us of his own volition! So how about now, Hokage? Do you admit it? Did you seal the three tails into one of your own villagers to get another Jinchuuriki?"Every eye in the room is on Itachi. You could cut the tension with a knife. After a lengthy silence, the Hokage responds."I did approve of the operation to seal the three tails into one of my own villagers." Itachi admits. "As you may know by now, we lost our own Jinchuuriki many years prior, and had no way of directly thwarting Akatsuki's plans. We took the three tails in order to put a stop to Akatsuki's ambitions. Nothing more, nothing less."As Itachi is speaking, you see both Neji and the eye patched man from the Mist turn suddenly and look about in seeming alarm, before returning warily to their positions.As Itachi finishes, the Raikage gets ready for a rebuttal.>A.Stay silent and listen>B.Whisper something to the Hokage>C.Whisper something to Neji>D.Other
>>43952648I'm pretty sure they had it in between then and now. It was let loose from Yagura when he was deposed and killed. And since Obito was the one who drove him insane with illusions, it must have happened after Rin was the jinchuriki. So they must have captured it again after it reformed, and feel like they should have gotten first dibs on reclaiming it this time.
>>43952772>C. Whisper something to Neji.>"Issue?"A single word, nothing more, nothing less.
>>43952772>D.OtherPart of senjutsu training is developing sensor skills. They'd be weaker without tapping into the flow of natural energy, but we should still have them. Feel around, see if we can sense anything too.
>>43952542Only the extra tailed beasts were gifts. Each village had captured one on their own. The Cloud had the eight tails, the Stone had the four tails, the Mist had the three tails, and the Sand had the one tail.
>>43952454birthday hype! Have a good day m8!
>>43952772>C.Whisper something to Neji"What's up?"
>>43952772>D.OtherCan we gather natural chakra to enter sage mode and be able to better sense chakra to find out what the Neji and the Hyuga theif are noticing?
>>43952839That's right, I forgot that Hashirama's flashback showed that some of them had already been captured. The point still stands that he gave away a huge amount of power for the sake of concessions. If Konoha wanted to dominate the world with the power of the Tailed Beasts, we would have done it eighty years ago.
>>43952829>>43952880>>43952915>>43952953Neji may have noticed something. With your training to use Nature chakra, you may be able to sense whatever it is that he saw. You stand perfectly still and gather Nature chakra. As you do so, the Raikage goes on."We cannot simply take you at your word." the Raikage responds. "You already have covertly entered the Water Country and taken their tailed beast. The Leaf is currently the village with the greatest manpower. If you were to accumulate Jinchuuriki, you would easily be able to force the other villages to comply with any of your demands. The Sand is already a victim of this. Kazekage, surely you want to be in control of your own village's affairs! We cannot let the Leaf gain too much power!"The Kazekage is silent for a bit before reacting."I've had enough of tailed beasts and Jinchuuriki." he states. "They've brought me nothing but grief. If they didn't exist, my wife and son would still be alive and happy. My son would never have become a threat to my village. I may be a dog of the Leaf, but if that's what it takes to never have a tailed beast set foot in my village again, then I will bear it."You finish gathering Nature chakra and enter Sage Mode. You feel for chakra around you. Beyond the sixteen sources in this room, you feel various small sources of chakra, likely the samurai guards. You also feel another large source of chakra, but it's a bit strange. Like it almost blends in to the ambient chakra in nature. That one is hard to track, but it feels like it's far below you and moving away. Far enough down that it should be underground even.You open your eyes. The Raikage is about to speak again.>A.Stay silent for now, let the summit finish>B.Whisper to the Hokage>C.Whisper to Neji>D.Other
>>43953129>Whisper to the Hokage>Spy, possibly Akatsuki, probably know about Taiyaki. Advise leaving as soon as possible.
>>43953129>B.Whisper to the Hokage>C.Whisper to NejiBig Chakra signature below us, likely Akatsuki, Taiyaki may be compromised.
>>43953129Zetsu, of course. You said that given the forces here that any villain you had show up would be killed easily, not that you wouldn't have any show up. And there are lots of Zetsus, killing one means nothing. Clever, Laze, very clever.>B.Whisper to the HokageAlert him to the spy, mention that any information said in this meeting is therefore compromised.
>>43953129>D.OtherSummon a monkey and give him a message for Konohamaru. Say Taiyaki's been compromised and to warn Kakashi and the village.
>>43953189This. Also, happy birthday Laze! I hope it goes well for you. Make sure to eat some cake or something!
>>43953212No jutsu in this room.
>>43953185This but avoid using his name, saying the three tails is comprised would be better.
>>43953289Then leave the room. This whole thing is a farce, and us being here isn't going to effect how Itachi plays things out. The Byakugans didn't really sense anything so mentioning the chakra is just going to look like a political gambit rather than an actual problem.
>>43953333Can't do that without the Hokage's permission. If we just up and left the guy we're supposed to be guarding in front of all five Kage, how would that look?
>>43953365WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU CARE HOW WOULD THAT LOOK IF THE FUCKER IS AFTER COLLECTING TAILED BEASTS AND BUILDING A MASSIVE DOOM DEVICE YOU DENSE FUCKER.
>>43953333>>43953212These. Gotta make sure the babby stays safe.
>>43953365Like we're dealing with the fallout from the other villages finding out we have the three-tails. The way I see it the meet is going to be split. The Cloud and Mist against Konoha, Stone staying neutral as always and the Sand with us.
>>43953386We need some tact, you moronic assbrain. It's not like Itachi's going to just sit there once we tell him.
>>43953420OH YEAH BETTER LOOK COOL IN FRONT OF THE OTHER KAGES INSTEAD OF WARNING AND AVOIDING THE DESTRUCTION OF THE WORLD HUNGNEGNGGHRUGHRUGRHUGRHRUHGUHGUH *Aneurysm*
>>43953420And if Itachi mentions anything it's going to look like political maneuvering. The Mist telling Cloud about us taking the three-tails is clearly because they're against us, so mr half-byakugan isn't going to say anything about the chakra, which means it's just us and Neji, talking about it, which is going to look fake.
>>43953452You seem like the kind of person who would fling his feces at someone during a Google Board of Directors meeting out of snark.
It isn't out of order to simply ask Itachi if we could leave for a bathroom break is it?
>>43953171>>43953185>>43953189>>43953265If that was in fact a spy, you have no time to lose. Disregarding the Raikage, you lean down to whisper to Itachi."Lord Hokage, I sensed a chakra signature spying on the meeting." you inform him. "It may be Akatsuki. The three tails might be compromised."At that, Itachi suddenly stands up and puts his hat back on."I apologize, but some urgent business just came up." the Hokage says the the room. "I need to return to my village immediately.""Where do you think you're going?" the Raikage shouts at Itachi. "Nothing has been resolved! You think you can just leave at your whim? If you walk out of here, then you are turning your back on any hopes of this issue being resolved diplomatically!"Ignoring the Raikage's protests, Itachi leaves the room with Neji in tow. You begin to follow, and see Kurotsuchi and the Tsuchikage looking at you with disappointment."Even after learning of the three tails, I thought we'd be able to talk this out reasonably." the old man tells you. "But it seems your superiors don't really care about inter-village relations after all..">A.Leave without a word>B.Say something to the Tsuchikage>C.Say something to Kurotsuchi>D.Other
>>43953500You guys have very little faith in Itachi's ability to handle this situation.
>>43953129>>C.Whisper to Neji
>>43953483I only throw rotting vetegables, thank you.
>>43953185This, but say Three Tails
>>43953511>B. Spy at the meeting, possibly Akatsuki, Mizukage's bodyguard noticed it leaving after Tayaki was mentioned.
>>43953511>D.Other"I'm trying to make sure there are villages to have inter-relationships with, instead of being destroyed by the hubris of this council and the Akatsuki."
>>43953511>B.Say something to the TsuchikageTell the Tsuchikage to ask the Mizukage what he sensed at the start. And mention to Kurotsuchi that Senjutsu is probably a bit better than half a byakugan at finding spies.
>>43953511 #>B.Say something to the Tsuchikage>C.Say something to KurotsuchiThere's someone spying in the meeting, we need to find out who it is
>>43953511There was a large chakra signature that left as soon as the three tails was mentioned, Our village may be under attack soon thanks to that. We Want peace, but if our home is about to party to the full might of the Akatsuki's wrath, we must move fast. Neji and I felt as did the Mizukage's aid, although I imagine he'll deny it. We apologize, after our home is secure we will return.
>>43953594I meant Misukage's bodyguard.
>>43953511>B>C"I sensed a powerful chakra underground beneath the meeting room. If that was a spy our village may soon come under attack and Akatsuki may come one step closer to their goals.""What would you have me do? Stay behind and negotiate on my own?"
>>43953511There was a spy, this is exactly why we didn't tell anyone about the three-tails though that failed apparently.
>>43953511>>43953554This.Then>D. While you are pointing fingers and doing politics, i'm trying to guarantee the existence of each damn village. Ask your brother, he actually knows what is going on."Gi full Shepard on this motherfucker.
Raikage fucked up by spilling the beans and now he thinks we're being petty shits about it.Hilarious.
>>43953511C. 'Kurotsuchi, I need you to trust me right now'Also are we a half monkey thing right now?
>>43953511>>43953657I like thatFuck politics, get results
>>43953657Hey, he's not the asshole who ruined everything, he just doesn't realize that the asshole who ruined everything is an asshole that ruined everything. So rather than call HIM an asshole ruining everything, we should just tell him that the asshole ruining everything is in fact an asshole ruining everything.
Guys, can we NOT just throw politics out the window and make an absolute ass of ourselves in front of all the Kage? Jesus fucking christ try and be subtle for once in your lives.
Y'know Konoha has two Akatsuki death's under their belts. We captured Naruto's allies and even held our own against other members. I don't see any other village doing really jack against them. Realistically we should be the ones in charge of how to deal with the Akatsuki.
Any chance we might be able to follow the spy-chakra?
>>43953702Of course he is not the asshole ruining everything. But we need to make him realize that he is turning into the bureaucrat that accidentaly helps the asshole who ruins everything into ruining everything with his politics. Make him go back to the field.
>>43953763Yeah but that's better served by first letting him know that the asshole ruining everything is an asshole ruining everything, rather than making accusations at him that don't even really apply. He's not pointing any fingers, he's just listening to the guy who was, and frankly he's got no good reason not to. Telling him about the spy DOES give him a decent reason not to listen. If he still chooses not to listen, THEN i'm all for going full-Shepard, but we should give him a chance first.
>>43953511>B.Say something to the Tsuchikage"A large chakra signature underneath the building left the area as soon as it was confirmed we had the Three-Tails. The Mizukage's sensor-nin can confirm this, providing she sees fit to be as open with information as she demands we be. We can only assume that this summit's security has been compromised and that Konoha will soon be under attack. We'd love to stay and talk, but protecting our jinchuriki just took priority over talking about him."
>>43954045I like this one
>>43954045I like it, but it seems like a bit much to say in passing. I do support getting as much of this to them as we can, though.
>>43954045This seems like the best of all worlds. It points out that we've actually got a good reason to leave, mentions that the lip-service that frankly all the villages have used 'oh sure we'll protect the tailed beasts, oh wait they're all dead whoops.' And should get them bickering amongst themselves rather than at us.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIzqWXK9jKAYou all must look uncooperative, but there is a serious issue that has to be addressed right now. You don't have time for politics."A large chakra signature underneath the building left the area as soon as it was confirmed we had the three tails." you tell the Tsuchikage. "The Mizukage's sensor-nin can confirm this, providing she sees fit to be as open with information as she demands we be. We can only assume that this summit's security has been compromised and that Konoha will soon be under attack. We'd love to stay and talk, but protecting our Jinchuuriki just took priority over talking about him.""This wouldn't be a problem if you hadn't butted into the Mist's affairs with its tailed beast in the first place." the Tsuchikage responds. "I suppose all you can do now is go back. You will have a long road ahead of you if you intend to make up for this, however.""Just.. good luck, Kon." is all Kurotsuchi says.With that, you chase after Itachi and Neji. The three of you immediately start heading back to the village at the fastest pace the Hokage will set."If that was an Akatsuki spy, then it would be ideal for them to attack while we are still gone." Neji says, as you all run. "We have to return as quickly as possible."Over several days, the three of you head back to the Leaf as fast as possible, with little rest.As you approach the village, you can see smoke rising. As you suspected, the Leaf is under attack. Before the three of you can draw any closer however, several figures step out in the road in front of your group. They all seem to be ninja. A man with half his head wrapped in bandages and a scar on his chin walks to the front."Long time no see, Itachi." the man says. "Or should I say, 'Lord Hokage'?""Danzo." the Hokage pants, still tired from the travel. "I hoped I'd never see you again.">A.Ask who this guy is>B.Ask why they aren't protecting the village>C.Ask Itachi what to do>D.Other
Also errandsBack in a bit
>>43954259>A.Ask who this guy is>B.Ask why they aren't protecting the village
>>43954259>C.Ask Itachi what to doKeep it simple, we don't have time to worry about introductions. Just let us know if we need to kill him or not.Also, fuck, I thought he was confirmed as dead. I must have misinterpreted something.
>>43954259>D. I don't know who you are, but we are on urgent business for the Leaf Village. If you interfere with our passage, we can, and will, use force.
>>43954259>>A.Ask who this guy is>B.Ask why they aren't protecting the village
>>43954259>C.Ask Itachi what to doI do so hope he didn't murder all the Uchiha's whilst we were gone and steal all their eyes.
>>43954259>C.Ask Itachi what to do
>>43954259>>C.Ask Itachi what to do
>>43954259"Hey, if you've got a super eye underneath those bandages your not being subtle. Kakashi-sensei does that too, and so do a lot of ninja who steal eyes!"
>>43954298He was confirmed in jail, actually.Looks like a jailbreak.
>>43954259>D.OtherLord Itach, is he friend or foe?
>>43954259>C.Ask Itachi what to doIf the guy is in our way he's clearly a problem, no point in asking why he's not helping. Just confirm our orders with Itachi and then fight.
>>43954259>We didn't warn the village by summoning that monkeySo much for that.
>>43954343Well, he was in prison, right? So they probably forcibly removed the eye before throwing him in there. More likely he's just bandaged that side of his face because he doesn't like showing the empty socket.
>>43954505I say we start covering one of our eyes and pretend we have some super-secret Impact Eye technique. When in reality we just wanna wear an eyepatch for fun.
>>43954539Well, Laze has mentioned that he imagines that in the future of this quest's timeline we'd be the jonin sensei for Taiyaki, Shizuka and Mirai. So a jinchuriki named after a food, a Uchiha directly related to Itachi, and a comparatively normal girl. If we didn't become the quirky jonin sensei who covers one of his eyes at all times we'd be severely remiss.
>>43954644We should cover both eyes then! Learn how to see with our nature sensing full time!
Hey, I share your birthday! Happy birthday, birthday buddy!
>>43954671>cover both eyesBlindfold or two eyepatches? I mean, while we could just slide down our protector thing, something about dual patches is pretty funny to me.
>>43954748Duel patches, definitely.
>>43954298>>43954335>>43954336>>43954342>>43954362>>43954479https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhzotCfAo7s&index=37&list=PL4C928EAF7AA5B906You don't have time for this. The village is under attack, and you need to help. If the Hokage tells you to fight him, then you will."Lord Itachi, what do you want us to do?" you ask. "Will we fight him?""We should make quick work of him." Itachi begins to say. Before he can continue, Neji interrupts."Lord Hokage, he has a sharingan!" Neji alerts him. "And his arm... is covered in them!""What?" Itachi gasps in disbelief. "You were missing an eye and arm when you were thrown in prison!""Indeed I was." Danzo replies. "It is so good to have loyal followers. They kept them safe for me. I then could get them back and use Kotoamatsukami to manipulate the memories of the guards and those who would read my mind.""Wait... Kotoamatsukami?" Itachi stammers. "You have Shisui's eye?""And quite a useful eye it is." Danzo responds. "Once I eliminate you, I can use it to convince everyone in the village to follow me. I can rebuild it stronger than ever. This eye will perform a far greater service with me than with Shisui."You see the Hokage shake with rage. You've never seen him show much emotion at all, but now his anger is clearly evident. He pulls his vial of pills out and swallows the four pills he has left all at once."Kon, Neji. go to the village." Itachi insists. "I am going to kill him myself."The Hokage intends to take on Danzo and all his followers alone.>A.Insist that you and Neji stay to help>B.Let Neji go ahead and help Itachi>C.Tell Neji to stay and help while you go ahead>D.Do as he says>E.Other
>>43954748Two eyepatches covering a blindfold which we put our headband over.That way no genjutsu can ever work on us!
Also breaking for dinnerSorry for the breaks back to back guys
>>43954828>E.OtherSummon our three monkies and blind, deafen and mute the bastard before he makes a move!
Hold your votes we need to tactics!
>>43954835Unless we run into Kurama or Ranmaru, of course. Fortunately, they exist in filler land, where the QM hates everything and I'm the only one who remembers they exist.
>>43954828>E. Lord Hokage, you are in no condition. If it were not for the danger the Akatsuki presented, I would have insisted a slower pace. Allow me.Then summon Sarujizo and kick his bitch ass before he unravels that shit.
>>43954828>B.Let Neji go ahead and help ItachiI doubt he's alone
>>43954828>E.OtherPoint out that Danzo's plan is stupid, since the Kotoamatsukami has a considerable recharge time, and there's no way he can mind control enough people fast enough for the remainder to not kill him.
Question would using Mizaru negate the effects of the Sharingan? I'd figure the Byakugan and the Rinnegan would bypass it.
>>43954828>D.Do as he says>E.OtherAsk Neji to scan ahead and see what other threats are around. Also summon Sarujizo and put him on, we're going to need Sage Mode long before this is over.
>>43954828>E. Summon Sarujizo and powerfuck Danzo before he can do anything.
>>43954917Hashirama cells, son>>43954941Sharingan offers genjutsu resistence, and Mangekyo increases itShisui's eye would be immune to Mizaru
>>43954828>D.Do as he saysyou wife would never forgive you if you cont come back to here
>>43955028>Hashirama cells, sonIn canon the Hashirama cells he had only reduced the cooldown enough to let him use it once a day. How much more does he have grafted to him now? Is he just wearing a Zetsu like Obito does?
>>43955028But his normal wouldn't be, and while he has his sharingan eye covered up....HE CAN'T SEE.
>>43954828>C. Telll Neji to stay here while you go ahead.We are still mediocre at best at resisting Genjutsu. If he hits us with Kotoamatsuki, that's game over. Neji, at least, might be able to beat that.
>>43955075Same amountHe plans on crossing that bridge when he comes to it
>>43954828>C.Tell Neji to stay and help while you go ahead
>>43955028Well we can still make him deaf and mute right? And make one eye go blind, forcing him to use the sharingan to see. Which should drain his chakra a shit ton like Kakashi.
>>43954828>C.Tell Neji to stay and help while you go aheadWe should probably wait on Sage Modo until we fight Pain in the village.
>>43955155What if we sat down and gathered it while watching Itachi fight? >Nah I'm good boss. I'm going to meditate real quick but it's gonna take five minutes for me to gather the chakra.>doo doo da doot doot da doo doo i'm a charging my attack
>>43954828We need to protect Itachi, so either Neji or us should stay while the other heads to the village to get help.
>>43955283One of the other nin would kill us.We worked with Sarujizo specifically because doing that wasn't an option.
>>43954828>A.Insist that you and Neji stay to helpThe sooner we defeat these guys, the sooner we can all go back and help the village. Itachi and Danzo can go head-to-head while Neji and Kon take the minions.
To be perfectly honest I'm hoping Itachi pulls out a bullshit ability and one shots Danzo. Fucking Danzo.
>>43954828>A.Insist that you and Neji stay to help"We are your body guards sir. We stay by your side."
>>43955347Think Danzo know what we're capable of? Or just based on the fact that Itachi made us one of his guards, he's discerned we're actually a threat.
>>43955401No, but if we seem like an easy target he'll take advantage of it.
>>43955386>one shotYou do remember that he has ten extra lives, right? It's literally impossible to one-shot him, because he retroactively turns his end into fiction, ten times. Even if you have a retcon gun to delete him from existence, you'd have to shoot ten more times.
>>43955387I really hope he doesn't respond with 'Your duty is to your village, not me. Kages are expendable but not their people.' or something along those lines.
>>43954828>A.Insist that you and Neji stay to help
>>43954828>D.Do as he says
Okay, let's try this one more time>A.Both stay and help>B.Neji stays to help, you go to the village>C.Both of you go to the village
>>43955526>C.Both of you go to the village
>>43955526>A.Both stay and help
>>43955526>B.Neji stays to help, you go to the villageFuck it.Can we summon one of our monkies before we get into the village?
>>43955526>B.Neji stays to help, you go to the village
>>43955526>B.Neji stays to help, you go to the villageWhatever, someone needs to get down there.
>>43955526CIf there was a prison break we're gonna need all the help we can. Itachi is a beast.
>>43955526>>B.Neji stays to help, you go to the village
>>43955425I know. I can hope though.Fucking Danzo.
>>43955526>>A.Both stay and helpIt should be over quicker. hopefullyFD
>>43955425Retcon Gun is totally going to be our new jutsus name.
>>43955526>>A.Both stay and help
Did all y'all miss the part where Itachi is tired from travelling at full speed for a few days? He needs our help.
>>43955671We'll leave him the three monkeys and Neji. They'll be able to handle things easily enough.
>>43955526>B.Neji stays to help, you go to the villageThe Jinchuuriki is the objective, here. Neji can handle himself.
Calling it, B winsWriting
I swear to ninja jesus if Neji fucks this up...
>>43955770would that be Madara? or Hashirama? SPS? Rabbit chick?
>>43955738Damnit, I think it was a draw and you picked the option I didn't want. If Itachi kicks the bucket now I'mma be super sad.
>>43955526>>C.Both of you go to the villageDanzo may have lots of lives, but Itachi is fucking hax. He's got this, no problem.Although I do think we and Neji should take out Danzo's minions to keep them from distracting Hokage sama.
>>43955922Bro, itachi is sick and his endurance is not his forte in this verse, also he's tired from travelling.
>>43955804Well it was Naruto in the series.So...I guess we're Ninja Jesus.Or at the very least Ninja Peter.
>>43955738Can we Impact Shinshin and explode one of Danzo's men before we leave?
>>43955958Unload all our exploding tags on them as a farewell gift! ALL OF THEM. >This is how I killed Orochimaru, asshole!
>>43955958"I'll escort that asshole in the white-cloak back to the village. Most of him, at least.">Proceed to Impact Shunshin THROUGH him
>>43955954He also has a technique designed specifically for countering Izanagi. It's called Izanami, appropriately enough. So the moment he sees Danzo use it he'll activate it and negate Danzo's biggest advantage.
>>43955994What would happen if we destroy all of Danzo's eyes at the same time?
>>43956036He'd be an ...eyesore.
>>43956075Get the fuck out.
>>43955542>>43955550>>43955552>>43955592>>43955596>>43955603>>43955727You're a bit hesitant to let the Hokage fight alone. He could probably beat all of them but he's tired from the trip. It would be better to leave someone to help."Neji!" you call. "Lord Itachi might need some help. You should stay here and back him up. I'll head for the village.""Alright." Neji responds. "I'll keep him safe. Take care of the village for us."You nod, then take off past the group of ninja unopposed. They seem to be focused on the Hokage alone.On the way you summon Sarujizo, anticipating a fierce battle. You will likely need Sage Mode. As Sarujizo gathers Nature chakra in his mask form, you can feel yourself transforming. Soon enough, you arrive at the village and sense out for chakra. There are a number of strong sources, many of them likely locked in combat.From what you can tell, there are three major areas you could intervene.At one in the center of the village, there are a few chakra signatures fighting a larger one.At another in the West, there is a lone large charka signature with several smaller ones moving away from it, and fighting other chakra signatures.And in the East, there are two large chakra signatures fighting one on one.There are several other sources of chakra going around, but none that are immediately recognizable as enemies. You have to decide where to help quickly.>A.Go to the center>B.Go to the West>C.Go to the East>D.Other
>>43956132>D.OtherFIND OUR UNCLE MAKE SURE HE'S SAFE.
>>43956132>C.Go to the East
>>43956132>B.Go to the WestSounds like that's someone who can provide reinforcements. Everyone else is currently tied up by someone else, but if they can call in more fighters it will be difficult to contain them.
>>43956132>A.Go to the center
>>43956132>A.Go to the centeri'm worried about the east but clearing out the center should help reinforce the others
>>43956132West is Naruto. East might be Pain and Kakashi doing their thing. Center is probably Ino-Shika-Cho fighting someone. I want to say Kisame.
>>43956132If this is the akatsuki then it looks like kisames not here which is bad.
>>43956132>>D.OtherFind Turtle baby, protect turtle baby.
>>43956132And in the East, there are two large chakra signatures fighting one on one.
>>43956132>B.Go to the West
>>43956233I really hope Tenten put a reverse summoning jutsu on the baby just in case.
>>43956132>>B.Go to the WestThat is where it looks like our help is needed most.
>>43956132>B. Go West
>>43956262We got Genma and his team to watch over them. They know the Hiraishin. I'm sure Taiyaki was teleported out the moment trouble started.
>>43956132>>A.Go to the center
Wonder what Jiraiya is doing. Surprised we don't see any giant toads jumping around.Also do you think we should try to summon the fourth monkey against Pain or do we have to train more for that?
>>43956479I think we asked about the fourth monkey. But He won't let us summon him until we do something for him or prove ourselves to him.
>>43956479We need to get Shizaru's approval directly before we can summon him. Summoning him will probably be part our end-game power up.Speaking of monkey summons, what does Sarujizo's mask form look like? Because I was thinking the traditional Peking opera mask/makeup for the Monkey King would look pretty cool. Pic related.
>>43956523I really hope he's our King Kong summon. We're due for a giant monkey/ape thing.
>>43956132A. Secure the center, most likely where most of our forces are tied up
>>43956182>>43956239>>43956279>>43956280https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNTQzUSuO5k&index=56&list=PL4C928EAF7AA5B906The West seems like it's the place that needs your help the most. You head there as fast as you can.When you arrive, you find a number of giant animals rampaging, destroying all the buildings in sight. All of them have a spike though their heads, and their eyes are ringed and purple. Just as the Rinnegan was described."Kon, have you come to assist?" you hear from next to you. It's Shino. "Tenten is using her space time ninjutsu to help evacuate, and Haku is likely with Ino right now. I'm glad you came along. Most of the chunin here can hardly scratch these creatures, and they aren't letting up. We need to take down the summoner."Shino points to a figure standing atop a building. One that the giant animals are taking measures to avoid. It's a woman with orange hair and piercings. She is wearing an Akatsuki cloak and has purple ringed eyes. No doubt about it. This is one of the bodies of Pain that Lord Jiraiya talked about. She looks in your direction and summons another giant creature.Your fight to defend to Leaf village is about to begin.>End of Chapter 48Leaving it there for todayRunning again on SaturdayTwitter is @LazeQM
>>43956609Thanks for running, Laze. See you Sunday.
>>43956609Doesn't matter how many bodies we take out.We gotta find the one that revives them.Meanwhile if we do kill one of the bodies, we should reverse summon it to Monkey Land so Pain can't revive'em...
>>43956624You are posting in the wrong thread. I'm not sure how you did this, but you did.
>>43956624....The fuck you on about anon?
>>43956609Will one of the other Kage's have the idea that if they go help the leaf the leaf will be indebted to them, so all four kages rock up and assist?Oh and thanks for Running.
Wonder how pissed each kage is at us. Will the Stone bear a personal grudge to us now?
>>43956813It's his fault we're in this trouble in the first place! I say we should be the one to hold a grudge.
>>43956813Nah, it sounds like Onoki understood. Mist is probably pissed at us, though. And Cloud probably isn't, but will pretend to be for the sake of political maneuvering.
>>43956813We left for a good reason. If they have a problem with that to bad. Like I said earlier I hope one of them has the idea to follow us so we owe them.
How fast is our lance?
After this whatever happens head to stone, not as a ninja, as Kon. Talk time and heart to heart
>>43957389Bretty fastThey could potentially shunshin to dodge it if they see you firing it thoughSo like, slower than a gun I guess
>>43957488So if no pain eyes were looking we could snipe. Second, honestly how much irreparable damage did we just do
>>43957788What do you mean
>>43957813I think he means when we walked out and shit. Like, how much irreparable damage with our relations and shit just happened.
>>43957951Rasa doesn't give a shit. Despite his objections, his village is doing way better than it has any right to after betraying an ally like it did and he knows it. His plan for the future is basically to keep his head down and build up the Sand's power where he can so he can hand it off proudly to KankuroOnoki is a bit miffed. You made a big deal about the villages working together, then they learn of the three tails and you guys bail. He could come back around, but for now his opinion of the Leaf is pretty shotA is mad cause he intended on working everything out at this summit. You basically walked out on his meeting, so he is pretty pissed right nowMei knows that you needed to leave, but she was already pissed at the Leaf for taking the three tails, so she's finding it hard to sympathize
>>43958063>Mei is miffedGuess no romancing her then
>>43958063And when they hear the leaf village was literally on fire by the time they got back and the Hokage was killed in the battle?
>>43958110You remember that the option to work with the Mist existed, right?Fucking nobody voted for that at all>>43958128They might feel bad
>>43958149>option to work with mists>tfw a lurker that timeFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUOh well...what's done. is done.Time to sacrifice and confess
>>43958149>Rasa: Aha! This is my chance to even the score out for being an asshat a few years back!>Sand village Aid makes the score politically even>The Sand Village can celebrate its autonomy for the first time in god knows how long>Temari is no longer pressured to be perfectly decent as the ambassador to the Leaf>fucks Shikamaru on the spot.
>>43958149Probably because it was never indicated that the Three-Tails reformed in the Land of Water. I'm looking over the archives now, and this thread is the first time we've been told we entered Mist's territory to seal it. Combine that with the Mist having been shown to be uncooperative and uninterested when it came to protecting the jinchuriki, and it makes perfect sense that no one voted for it.
>>43958063I was worried that we had shit the bed taking off out of nowhere like that. God knows what we're gonna do to repair relations now.Looks like the Ninja Cold War is gonna continue!
So if Itachi dies I don't think Jiraya would want to be Hokage again. Might be down to Sasuke Neji and KonThat's if Kakashi doesn't want it too.Should we do it, guys?Keep the position warm for our little bro and try to fix all this political bs?
>>43958317The Leaf only knew it reformed due to Kurenai's team seeing itI guess I should have made it a bit more clear that it was in the Water Country thoughAlso yeah, the Mist was being a bitch about it, that's fair to sayNothing you couldn't have talked out with them though>>43958336>implying Itachi will dieThis is the first time he'll get to break out the chakrazord since Rasa
>>43958387So...when will Kon sing "why cant we be friends" ?
>>43958441When he goes to karaoke
I'm surprised the other kages weren't understanding about the fact that there was a spy that just found out about the hidden Jinchuriki and that the village was likely under attack. Hell, they could've all come along and we could've continued discussions.
>>43958387>Nothing you couldn't have talked out with them thoughRight, but why would we have wanted to? They demonstrated that they didn't care at all what happened to the jinchuriki, so why even ask them about what to do with the Three-Tails? The only reason to include them would be because we would have to enter their territory to deal with it, and as I said, that wasn't clear at the time. I think if we had known that we would have voted differently. This doesn't feel fair to pull a "you screwed up and cost yourself political capital" move now.
>>43958063So did they assume we were lying about the attack to get out of having an awkward conversation? Because if they didn't and are just mad at us for leaving, these guys suck and I don't want to work with them in the first place. Our village is under attack, that takes priority.
>>43958487You have way more knowledge of Akatsuki than they do, and none of them actually realized the scale of what you would be facingNone of them are particularly willing to stick their necks out for you anyway, thoughAlso remember that the attack was assumed on your part, you didn't actually know for sure it would happen immediately, it just seemed likely>>43958573Once they learn of the attack they'll come around a bit concerning your departure, but the issues remain unresolved, so don't expect everything to be hunky dory>>43958496That really was a complete lapse on my part, it was one of those things I just took for granted and didn't realize I needed to mention it
>>43958641So can we retcon it, then? Get rid of the "invaded Mist's territory" bit and just leave us with "had a jinchuriki we weren't telling anyone about" as reasons why they'd be mad with us?
>>43958641>Once they learn of the attack they'll come around a bit concerning your departure, but the issues remain unresolved, so don't expect everything to be hunky doryWell it also demonstrates exactly why we didn't tell anyone we had it. It didn't work out in this specific case, but it demonstrates exactly how valuable being cautious was seeing as the moment the akatsuki heard we had it they attacked.
>>43958641Well. Kinda can't have a Kage without a village y'know? They would've done the same exact thing if their village had been at risk.Only we would've offered to help them. Because Kon is not an asshole.
>>43958696Yeah, this whole thing seems to be "the Kage are assholes and for some reason this is our fault". I say fuck them. We don't need their help. We'll defeat Akatsuki on our own, reclaim the Tailed Beasts, and then not give them any.
>>43958681Afraid not, but "invading their territory" was really not what they were ever concerned aboutIt was always about the tailed beast, they consider the three tails theirs since they captured it themselves all that time agoI guess I forgot to mention it since it really is just incidental, they are far past caring about that>>43958724I don't see how it's your fault at allKon pretty much just went with what the Hokage said for most things, you can't really say you're all that much at fault for not insisting on doing things differently
>>43958785We go by pokemon rulez here son. If its not in a ball, its fair game!If they catch one, then we can't complain either.
>>43958814But that's hard, anonWhy would they do that when they can just complain until everyone gangs up on the Leaf and makes them give it back?
>>43958839That'd be handing over a child from their parents to do that.And after our mistake with Naruto, we're not gonna give them a child to turn into a weapon. I bet they'll want Haku and the sword back too.
>>43958875It's politics anon, they want whatever they can wring out of you
>>43958875I don't think Haku was ever actually a citizen of Hidden Mist, and he got the sword from his mentor. The fact that his mentor defected with it or that his parents are from the country are irrelevant.
We should have stayed behind to represent the leaf.
Lol imagine Itachi just throwing Kon the hat saying this is his kinda thing before leaving to save the leaf
>>43959101>"Alright. I'm in charge now. Point to Raikage>Fuck youPoint to Tsuchikage>Fuck youPoint to Kazekage>Your coolPoint to Mizukage>And I wanna fuck you>I'm out!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTOKJTRHMdw
>>43959101Kon was secretly the Hokage the entire time!How would Kages react to THAT!
>>43959142>Point to Kazekage>>Your coolDid someone actually just post thatI mean, I don't have a problem with him, but I only ever heard people call him an irredeemable scumbag
>>43959194People are very reactionary. I remember Sasuke used to get a lot of shit some years ago for being an emo loser, and now everybody loves him.
>>43959142Not pointing to mizukage and kurotsuchi and saying us three, champagne and impact techniques tonight
>>43959194To me he just seemed like a guy totally disenfranchised with the world. He builds, people fuck it up. He was just lethargic as balls. Poor dude thought he found a way out the dark with Orochimaru... He was wrong
Not following sample's footsteps and becoming the land of sounds kage. But rename it something first
>>43959450Land of Quakes.
>>43959469Village hidden in the rubble Village hidden in the mountains
Would Laze ever let us build to that I wonder I mean the last mizukage was dumb young
Well I'm going to bed, so thanks to everyone that wished me a happy birthday
Peace out Laze don't forget to archive and have a great birthday
>>43959220I don't. He was a fucking wanker, and had more plot armour than god.He should have been dead like 15 times during the series but never wound up losing the fights he should have lost, and pulled new bullshit out of his ass every single time he showed up.I like sause-man in this quest because he isn't canon sasuke, but canon sasuke is a tosser.
