>This is a quest taking place in an alternate version of the Naruto world during the same time period as the story, with a few notable differences.

You stand in the Kage box of the Chunin Exam finals arena, having just been witness to a historic agreement.The Allied Shinobi Forces. A union of the Five Great Ninja villages for the first time ever. Cooperation like this had absolutely no precedent. But it seems the lingering threat was just that great."We should discuss our exact goals later this evening." the Tsuchikage suggests. "For now, give us some hours to ourselves.""Of course." Itachi replies. "I will have a room prepared for us to conduct our initial meeting.""Good." the Raikage says. "Make sure to bring your top men. We have quite a few things we're going to need to hash out."With that, the other Kage and their aides take their leave. Looking around, you see there are quite a few people lingering in the stands as well. The disruption seems to have generated a lot of confusion. Sasuke hasn't even left the center of the arena."We're leaving, Kon." the Hokage tells you, as he and Neji head down the stairs. "Join us back at my office whenever you're able.">A.Follow them immediately>B.Go see Sasuke>C.Go home for a while>D.Go see somebody else>E.Go somewhere else>F.Other
>>45603675>B.Go see SasukeCommiserate with him over how Akatsuki ALWAYS shows up to interrupt the Chunin Exams. I know they're evil, but this is just rude.
Just finished reading through the archives. God damn, this is a fun quest.You guys could totally have banged kurotsuchi a few sessions ago though. She said she could eat your cooking forever, you say "stick around, I'll make you something special".
>>45603675>>A.Follow them immediately
So, something fun I realized since last thread: With Rasa alive, Kon is going to have to take the place of Gaara when it comes to family drama in the Fourth Ninja War. It fits perfectly, we've got a parent whose moves are a counter to our own and who our best chance at defeating will come from distracting them with emotions over how far we've grown. Throw in the (possibly joking) comment Laze made about Kon getting his final powerup from his mom, and Kon vs. Saeko should be a cool match.

>>45603675>B.Go see Sasuke
>>45603804>>45603927>>45603959You decide that before you spend your entire evening at the Hokage's office, you should check in with your friend. You jump down to the center of the arena where Sasuke is still standing, apparently in deep thought."So Akatsuki went and interrupted the Chunin Exams again." you say jokingly. "I know they're evil, but that's just rude.""Heh. Actually this time, I'm almost inclined to thank them." Sasuke replies. "Now we know exactly what their plan is. It's much better than sitting in the dark like we've been doing. Now that I know the truth, I know what I have to do.">A.I guess it was nice of them to inform us>B.Ask what Sasuke thinks of what Madara said>C.Congratulate Sasuke on his match>D.Go see someone else>E.Leave and head to the Hokage's office>F.Other

>>45604126>F. Other"Could you do me a favor and look over your clan's records? Try and find an Uchiha listed as killed in action, but who wasn't returned to the village for burial.""If this " Madara" is an imposter I'd like to know who he may really be."
>>45604218I kind of want to not discover it early, if only so that Kon can call Obito a liar when he does the reveal. "You lie about being Tobi, you lie abut being Madara, why should we believe this Obito identity is the true one? No, you're probably just trying to mess with Kakashi's head by pretending to be his dead teammate. And I, for one, am not impressed, you haven't put nearly enough work into this deception."
>>45604281Honestly we should do this either way. Especially if he gets all monologue-y
>>45604145>>45604154>>45604166Sasuke seems pretty sure of himself. That's always good."Congratulations on that match, by the way." you go on. "That was quite the show. Especially that last jutsu. Lord Jiraiya was freaking out about it.""Thanks." Sasuke replies. "I didn't think I'd need to pull it out for Gaara, but I figured I'd end things with a bang. Gotta make the village look good, after all. Anyway, I need to go see Itachi real quick. You're probably headed that way too."You nod, and the two of you leave the arena in the direction of the Hokage building. On the way, you swing by the restaurant to tell your uncle you'll be home late tonight.You and Sasuke make your way into the Hokage's office to find him and Neji accompanied by Lord Jiraiya. They stop talking as you enter, and Sasuke makes his way up to his brother."I'm ready." Sasuke says. "Let's do the exchange.""While I appreciate your enthusiasm Sasuke, this is a bad time." the Sixth responds. "I'm going to need to be using these eyes a bit longer, and the procedure will leave us both blind for a time. I'll let Shizune know, and we can work out an appropriate timeframe that doesn't cause any conflicts.""Fine. I get it." Sasuke sighs. "Don't mean to cause an inconvenience. Just tell me when it's ready."Sasuke waves at you as he leaves.>A.Ask what that was about>B.Ask what the Hokage has planned for the alliance>C.Ask him what happened with the three tails>D.Ask something else>E.Other
>>45604382>B.Ask what the Hokage has planned for the alliance
>>45604281To be fair, for you, he's claimed to be Madara from the start
>>45604382>A.Ask what that was about>C.Ask him what happened with the three tails
>>45604382>B"Swapping eyes? Neat."
>>45604421Doesn't mean we cant criticize mercilessly
>>45604382>A.Ask what that was about
>>45604421I thought we heard about the Tobi identity from one of the Akatsuki. Maybe I'm misremembering. The point still stands, though. If someone's already using an implausible fake identity, there's no reason to believe that the next implausible identity he tells us is real.
>>45604382Holy shitI didnt even think about itachi getting new eyes from sasuke and vice versa, itachi's going to be a force of nature
>>45604462We really need to get that grumpy monkey on our side, or we're going to be left behind, fast.
>>45604480We're gonna need more than that anon
>>45604382>>45604382>A>C>B>DSomething ain't adding up, why is so called Madara making a show, stealth would be better, he needs those other nations, he just won't admit it. Secondly what happened to kakashi I didn't see him. Also Kakuzu implied it was not Madara, he was many things, but he never liked to me
>>45604560Its easy being a super suspicious detective when you know the the plot isnt it?
>>45604701Wonder if Kakashi saw MMadara's face in the interrogation, would blow the Madara thing out the windows.
>>45604411>>45604441>>45604453Now that Sasuke has left, you want to get up to speed on the Hokage's plans. Though you are a bit curios about the implications of that conversation."What was that about, Lord Itachi?" you ask. "Are you going to swap eyes with Sasuke?""That I am." the Sixth replies. "If two close relatives with the Mangekyo Sharingan exchange eyes, they can become immune to its deteriorating effects. They can gain the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan. To be honest, I'm quite glad Sasuke has finally agreed. My eyesight is nearly gone as it is. With this, I don't have to worry about being a burden any longer. To a degree, anyway."With that portion of your curiosity sated, you move on."So what do you have planned for the alliance, Lord Itachi?" you inquire. "Anything for me?""I don't want to make any big commitments as far as planning goes until we hear from the others." the Sixth begins. "I want to make sure they are accommodated first, then work around them. They already are predisposed to be annoyed whenever the Leaf tries to call the shots. I don't want to cause any unnecessary friction. Just know that you are one of my top assets. You will be one of the strongest game changers out on the field in this war. I want you to pay very close attention later this evening and think about how you can best utilize your talents, and those of your comrades.""Itachi wants you to be one of the Leaf's chief decision makers." Jiraiya adds. "Unlike me, Tsunade and Shikaku, you have hands on experience with our finest young ninja. You know best what they're capable of.">A.Ask what happened last night>B.Ask about recruiting more allies>C.Ask about something else>D.Wait for the meeting>E.Other
>>45604382>Is eye swapping a family tradition?>B>C.Isn't swapping eyes with a sick dude a bad idea?
>>45604736Could be. Obito did hold Rin as she was dying, depending on just how a Tailed Beast disperses with its host's death Isobu might have seen him. In which case Kakashi would probably recognize him.
>>45604773>>A.Ask what happened last night
>>45604773>A.Ask what happened last nightHow'd the Three-Tails interrogation go? Any actionable information?>>45604782It worked fine in canon, Itachi's sickness seems to be confined to his lungs.
>>45604773>>A.Ask what happened last night>>B.Ask about recruiting more allies>>E. If we have time, get Uncle to Cater the meeting.
>>45604773>A.Ask what happened last night>B.Ask about recruiting more alliesWe should try to recruit as many of the smaller villages as we can. Especially those that supply us with basically all our equipment, food and other vital things.
>>45604821So....why doesn't he get a lung transplant?Do the new lungs deteriorate or something. We've got a bunch of Uchiha's, one or two of them could give their Hokage a lung. Even if they don't agree with him, having Itachi as virtually leader of the clan is an important thing. Hell Sasuke is the clan leader now, they'd listen to him.
>>45604773>E. I want Shikamaru there with me. I might have the political experience, but he's got the strategic mind we'll need.This can go with anything else, really.
>>45604870leader of the clans*
>>45604773>>45604889I'll back adding Shikimaru as well.
>>45604773> e think of jutsu combinations with the other village heavy hitters.
>>45604870I don't think they know how to transplant lungs. Eyes got a priority because they're the easiest way to steal a bloodline, but other organs seem to have been ignored.
>>45604993Weird. They have entire ninja medical team who can do amazing shit.But one organ transplant is out of their reach.Naruto's technology is fucking weird.
I was under the impression that when madara and his brother did the eye exchange, only madara ended up with the eternal mangekyo. Was there ever a reason for this?
>>45605144They didn't actually know about the Eternal Mangekyo. What they knew was that Madara was going blind, and Izuna was dying, so Izuna gave his brother his eyes. Madara getting the Eternal Mangekyo was completely unexpected, and Izuna was too dead for him to get Madara's eyes in return.
>>45604817>>45604821>>45604837>>45604844It's a lot of responsibility, but you're prepared to take it on. In the meantime, you remember the issue that came up last night."What about the three tails interrogation?" you ask. "Did you get any actionable information?""We did learn some interesting things, mostly thanks to B and Gyuuki." Itachi begins. "If they weren't there, I doubt things would have gone well at all, considering how much trouble it was with their help. We learned one important thing above all others, that will help us greatly in our negotiations with the Mist. It seems that both the Third and the Fourth Mizukage were under the influence of Madara's genjutsu. He has basically been in control of the Mist for decades. It was Madara through the Third Mizukage that set up the entire incident with Rin and Kakashi, then he took control of the Fourth Mizukage, Yagura, as well. It seems Yagura's reputation as a perfect jinchuuriki was only possible because Madara was controlling both him and the three tails. I have no doubt the Mist will have no further qualms about facing Madara now. Beyond that, we learned some things of little relevance to our situation, but meeting Gyuuki seemed to have jogged the three tails' memory a bit. He goes by Isobu, and apparently the tailed beasts were all created by the Sage of the Six Paths long ago. Isobu referenced it as not long before the last time he saw Gyuuki. Truly strange to think about, but not immediately pressing. Anyway, that's about as much as we could get out of him. He said their memories get shaky after dispersing.">A.Inquire further about the topic (Write-in)>B.Ask about recruiting more allies>C.Ask how Kakashi Sensei is doing>D.Suggest something regarding the meeting>E.Wait for the meeting>F.Other
>>45605204>C.Ask how Kakashi Sensei is doing
>>45605204>E.Wait for the meeting
>>45605204>Should we tell Haku about Madara controlling the Mist? It would mean that Zabuza's entire life was the result of Madara's control. Something that would probably spur Haku into VENGEANCE mode.
>>45605256ICE COLD VENGEANCE.
>>45605204>B.Ask about recruiting more allies>C.Ask how Kakashi Sensei is doing>D. Shikamaru. Get his lazy ass at that meeting.
>>45605256Not really. Zabuza mostly just did whatever he wanted. He even tried to kill Yagura just because he wanted to be in charge. Madara really didn't have much impact on Zabuza's life, if any
>>45605452But he was the one controlling Yagura.
>>45605452>During the term of the Fourth Mizukage, Yagura, Kirigakure began the practice of pitting Academy graduates against each other in death matches as a final exam Yagura -> Controlled by Madara -> Madara is responsible for the death of the hundred of students killed by Zabuza
>>45605204>>D.Suggest something regarding the meetingShikimarue and catering. Gotta plug Uncle's business.
>>45605452So if Yagura was a cool dude, Zabuza would still have been a dick?
>>45605204>CAnd I already have a few ideas of who can go where but we will see. Otherwise I'm curious my lord do we have any... How should I say...side goals you want me to aim for?Finally given what we have learnt, did we learn anything about Madara's abilities themselves?
>>45605596Supporting this. Ask about political undercurrents
We really need some huge combo move or multi stage move, to create a vast storm which we exploit somehow. I mean were are the Storm of the Leaf until we get a better name
>>45605754So fire pretty much just trumps impact style, we should see if any other elements boost it, in the way wind boosts fire. Or even better, if we know anyone with a kekkei genkai that boosts it.
>>45605221>>45605384>>45605543So the Mist should be more willing to cooperate now. That's good. You didn't see your teacher at the exams. You wonder if he's alright."How is Kakashi Sensei doing?" you ask. "Nothing happened to him, did it?""Kakashi will be alright with a bit of rest." Itachi responds. "He was under quite a bit of stress, but now that he knows the truth behind the incident, I think he will be more resolved than ever. It's been bothering him for a long time, you know. I only met him a few years after the fact, when we were both in ANBU. He was still suffering from pain he felt at that time. But he has gotten better, in no small part thanks to you and your team. If he had learned this truth back then, he would likely have been consumed by revenge. But he's in a better state now, thanks to his bonds here. He will be just fine."You get an idea for the meeting."Maybe my uncle could cater the meeting?" you ask."If he can, we would all be ecstatic, I'm sure." the Hokage replies. "Today is a busy day, though. But even if he can't the effort will be appreciated nonetheless.""Also, can we make sure Shikamaru is here for the meeting?" you go on. "I'd like to have his opinion on things.""Well, Shikaku was already going to be present, but I suppose it can't hurt." the Sixth muses to himself. "He'll have to fill his father's shoes one day, after all."With that, you go off to take care of things. Meeting with your uncle, you find that he is happy to cater the affair. He assures you that he will take care of it.You head back to the Hokage building and go to the meeting room. There is a big table in the center. Everyone from before in Itachi's office is here, as well as Tsunade, Shikamaru and his father. They all seem to be waiting for the others to arrive.>A.Wait in silence>B.Talk to someone>C.Other
>>45605591Considering he wasn't even a student at the academy, and decided to slaughter the whole graduating class, yes. He most likely would be
>>45605888>>B.Talk to someoneTalk to Shikimaru and his dad. See if they are aware of any KIA Uchiha's whose body was never recovered.
>>45605888>B. Talk to someoneThe two Shikas. I want their take on the meeting, maybe compare notes on the mannerisms and tastes of the various kage. Give them something to model future interactions and decisions with.
>>45605888>C.OtherMeditate and go into Sage Mode. See if Madara left any spies here.You know he'll eventually figure out a way to block our sage senses...but until then USE THE SHIT OUT OF IT.
>>45605803We're lightning and wind, which are amplified by earth and lightning. I think that's Magnet Release, if I remember right. We should try comboing with Rasa.
>>45606114Wait, what am I saying? Earth and lightning is Explosion Release, not Magnet. Yeah, we need to combo with our cousins.
>>45605888>A.Wait in silence
>>45606148Kon's release can counter explosion release, but maybe we can enhance them too? And if thats the case, maybe we can make special explosion tags enhanced with impact chakra to make them more explodey.
>>45606275We combo well WITH fire, imagine firing a fireball I to our Impact sphere? Quite a fucking boom
>>45606316Impact isn't quite explosion but it still is a concussive force, yeah?
>>45606275It would be the other way around. Depending on whether it's used in opposition or combination, Explosion chakra merging with Impact chakra will either negate Explosion or strengthen Impact.
>>45606316The thing I find interesting? The Impact sphere was destroyed by Amaterasu, but also destabilized it. Amaterasu's whole thing is that it's not just super-hot but also super-controllable. Impact must be overcharging Fire so much that the user can't sustain it. That means that if we can find a way to avoid getting caught in the backlash our Impact spheres would actually be the perfect counter to Fire techniques. Prematurely detonate them, cause them to explode in the caster's face. Literally, given that most Fire jutsu involve exhaling the flame.
>>45605937>>45605963You head over to Shikamaru and his father. These two are the guys whose smarts you want to rely on. As you approach, Shikamaru greets you with a sigh."Hey Kon, thanks for inviting me." Shikamaru says, jokingly. "Glad you have such confidence in my opinions.""Quit whining." Shikaku bops his son lightly on the head. "I'm getting up there in years. It's only natural they want you to start taking my place. So this is your buddy Kon, right? Didn't think much of you when I saw you at my door that night, but it must not have occurred to me just who you were. You've accomplished a lot more than one would think from looking at you. I'm sure you and Shikamaru will continue to be a great team in the future. Ain't that right?""Yeah, yeah." Shikamaru grumbles. "You can count on me."You ask the father and son whether they can keep a close eye on things during the meeting, and tell you what they think afterwards. They agree, and tell you that that's what they are there for."After the meeting, just ask us anything in particular and we can give you our thoughts." Shikaku tells you. "If you think something might be important, don't hesitate to bring it up."After you chat a bit, the other Kage start to arrive. The Tsuchikage, accompanied by Kurotsuchi and Akatsuchi. The two bodyguards both wave at you as they enter. The Kazekage, accompanied by his three children. Temari and Kankuro also wave in your and Shikamaru's direction, while Gaara greets you with a stare less cold than usual. The Raikage, accompanied by his two aides and his brother. B shoots some kind of hand sign in your direction.The Mizukage and her aides haven't arrived just yet, but your uncle does, with plenty of food for everyone in attendance and then some."It's an honor to serve a meeting of the Five Kage!" your uncle bows to them as he enters. "Keiji Karagowa, at your service. I hope you enjoy the food, it's our finest!">ContinuedAfter errands, sorry
>>45606349Yeah, it's like the kinetic force of an explosion
>>45606609With an added electrical component. I've been thinking of it as a room temperature plasma, expands with a lot of force and discharges electricity, but very little heat.
>>45606591>Keiji KaragowaHoly shit, our uncle has name!
>>45606666He's had a name for a long time, it just rarely comes up in the narration because Kon's so used to thinking of him just as "uncle". But it's been used before.
>>45606666He got one in thread 04 IIRC
Alright. I need everyone's help on this. How do we abuse 10/10 and the flying thunder goddess to blow up the moon? I am thinking combo it with our two (soon to be eternal) Mangekyo sharingan users to launch space meteors and shit at it.
>>45606666>>45606693>>45606730>>45606741But it came up again...he's gonna die at the meeting, isn't he?
>>45606917That's a bad idea. Laze said that The Last and Boruto The Movie are canon to this quest's continuity. We blow up the moon, and angry moon man comes down to steal Neji's fiance and shoot us all with lasers.
>>45606933Saying your name is a death flag?Shit.We'd better start assuming an alias. >'Nok Awogarak'Perfect. No death flags for us!
>>45606951>Laze said that The Last and Boruto The Movie are canon to this quest's continuity.Didn't see any of themWhat happened in them?
>>45606591"Every Kage in this room besides the Raikage has already eaten at your restaurant, Keiji." Itachi replies. "Rest assured, you have no shortage of fans in this room."Your uncle dishes out all the food, and thanks the group again before leaving. Not long after, the Mizukage and her aides arrive. They take a seat, but everyone unanimously decides to eat first before starting.A few minutes later, everyone is ready."Welcome, everyone." Itachi begins. "Thank all of you once again for joining me. We can now begin to discuss the terms of our alliance. First and foremost, I would like to nominate the Raikage as the leader of this alliance. It is his village in the most immediate danger, as such he should direct our forces. Are there any objections?"There is some grumbling among themselves, but surprisingly, none of the other Kage object. They all agree to let the Raikage lead."Thank you, everyone." the Raikage takes the floor. "The Cloud greatly appreciates your support in its time of need. Now, we all know the most important factor here is the protection of the jinchuuriki. As such, B and the Leaf's jinchuuriki will have to have a separate force from the others to protect them.""Ah naw, bro. That ain't gonna flow." B interrupts. "I'm done hiding while you guys all fight. I need to be a part to try and make things right. Besides, at a time like this you can't divide your might. Just let me fight with you and stay in your sight.""Absolutely not, B!" the Raikage slams his fist. "It's too dangerous!"The brothers are at odds.>A.Let them resolve this alone>B.Interject>C.Whisper something to the Hokage>D.Other
>>45607200>A.Let them resolve this alone
>>45607196Well, in The Last, about three years after canon ends the last member of a clan of Moon Ninja directly descended from Kaguya comes down to Earth to kidnap Hinata, steal Hanabi's eyes since his own were destroyed, and then threaten to destroy the world unless he and Naruto get to have a big dick waving competition. Okay, he says he's planning on destroying the world anyway, but we all know he's really doing it just so he can one-up the competition for his waifu.In Boruto The Movie, two members of Kaguya's species come to the planet to...something something eat the world, I think. They're not very well developed. They're basically just Kaguya 2.0, wanting to absorb everyone's chakra. That takes place about two years or so after the manga epilogue's flash-forward, so around twenty years from now. Something for Kon to look forward to, I guess.
>>45607200Have them play Janken to decide what they do.It's better then arguing.That's how Dragon Ball characters settle shit.
>>45607200>B.Interject"B, your brother is going to be busy coordinating our forces. He won't be able to keep a watch on you in combat, not without neglecting his other duties. Dedicating ninja to guard you and preserve his peace of mind will more than make up for the loss of combat strength that will be invested into it. I know you want to fight, that's completely understandable. But please, for your brother's sake if no one else's, listen to him."
>>45607200>CMight I suggest an alternative, we strike the Akatski first. Send an elite team to eliminate and destroy what akatski resources we can while their army marches on the cloud.B can stay with the main army both for safety and as a lure. The hit team can move in and hit Madara. If that team fails the akatski will still be weakened and engage them in a slow withdrawal. B stays with the main army, which if needs be can divide later
>>45607200Wouldn't it be super beneficial if the Jinchuuriki were grouped in one place, had a minimal defense force that can be wiped out by one S Ranked Missing Nin for Madara?They'd be safer within the bulk of our alliance, not separated.
>>45607526But if both of them are in one place, that leaves the possibility of both being captured at once.
>>45607590I was thinking that special defense force would guard both of the jinchuuriki.If they had two separate teams, that'd just leave them as bigger targets.
>>45607312>>45607387You can't really put your hat in there now. The two of them need to work this out alone.After a long fit of arguing, B's stubbornness eventually wins out. He says that he will join the fight and there isn't a damn thing that can stop him."As much as I don't want you to, I admit I can't stop you without wasting too much of our battle power." the Raikage sighs. "Just promise me you'll be careful. Anyway, that means the Leaf will have to have the utmost protection for their jinchuuriki. I trust you have it handled?""We can handle it." Itachi replies. "We have a method that is nearly foolproof with minimal personnel investment. You have little need to worry.""So I can hope. Good enough." the Raikage continues. "Next on our agenda, the minor villages. The Rain is apparently already on Madara's side.""The Leaf has good relations with the Waterfall." Itachi says. "We can almost assuredly get them to join us. As for the others, we can try to reason with them. Though maybe the rest of you have more rapport?""We can try, but don't expect much." the Tsuchikage replies. "Most of the minor villages are not fans. We will send people to the Grass, but no promises.">A.Suggest something>B.Remain silent>C.Other
Eating dinner, back in a while
>>45607643>A. "We have connections with the Yukigakure. We even saved the princess. So they're on good terms."
>>45607643Why are these smaller villages going to Madara's side in the first place? If we can address this then we can severely limit his capabilities without spilling blood
>>45607643>A.Suggest something"Snow owes us some gratitude, we might be able to swing assistance from them. A lot of their technology only functions at upper longitudes, so they'd be useless for strike missions, but Lightning is far north enough that they should be able to help mount a defense."
We visit any of the other smaller villages?How about the other teams?We should really pool our mission logs together and see who likes us and who doesn't among the smaller villages.I kinda wanna visit the Star Village.That peacock method is GOAT.
>>45607643>C."The Snow may be reliable. My Genin team did them a favor, and the Princess and I still exchange letters. We may be able to win over others through diplomacy."
>>45607842It gives you radiation poisoning, it's not that great. Also, since it's from a filler arc it's debatable if it actually exists in this continuity.
Battle plan, while our negotiations teams deal with the smaller nations, we need to track down the akatski and find a base, see what their strengths are, see what their force is like.. We have a head that can help us there. But seriously destroy the head once we know. Otherwise who knows what will happen
>>45607951I'm saying this because engagement with an unknown element is terrifying, especially when one is apparently ninja devil.laze is an army dude, he knows what I mean, I wanna use everything I was taught.
>>45607951>>45608034Akatsuki. Get the name of the enemy right, before you blow up some cat skiing fan club.
>>45608093In his defense, the resemblance is pretty strong.
>>45608093It's my damned mobile auto correct... Question is when did I write akatski... How long has this been?
>>45608124...Damnit those are cute kitties....Well since Akatsuki means Daybreak or Dawn....should we name our group something like...I dunno 'Dusk'? Which would be...Yugure? That sounds cool.We are the Dusk before the Dawn! >>45608190I didn't mean to come off like a jackass(I know I did upon re-reading), but it's a small error that bugs the fuck out of me.
>>45608249Nah, that doesn't work for me. Akatsuki calls themselves that as a whole "dawn of a new world" thing. Naming ourselves "dusk" has the same connotations of one world ending and another coming into being. Which is something we're trying to prevent. I say we just stay the Allied Shinobi Forces. Trying to define ourselves by our opponent only validates them.
>>45607683>>45607717>>45607855You know of one minor village that will surely come to your aid."The Land of Snow may be reliable." you say. "My team did them a favor some years back, and they owe us a debt of gratitude. Saved their princess, you know. We also may be able to win other villages over with diplomacy.""Ah, I had nearly forgotten. Good call, Kon." the Hokage replies. "We will enlist the help of the Snow. As for the other minor villages, it is always worth the effort. We should all send out combined teams to show how serious we are.""I can agree to that." the Raikage goes on. "We should try to reason with every village we can. Save maybe for the Rain. I don't know if there is much hope to reason with them. Although, do we know what Madara's force looks like? It can't just be Rain shinobi. Who else does he have under him?""I can answer that." a familiar voice responds as it enters the room. It's Ino's father, Inoichi. "We've gotten all the info we could from that Hidan, and sealed him away just in case. I can give my report now, if you'd like.""Is that alright with everyone else?" the Sixth asks. The other Kage all nod."Unfortunately we probably didn't get as much as you'd all have liked." Inoichi begins. "His constant pain mangles his thoughts a bit, and makes it hard to focus too thoroughly. It also seems that he was the most recent Akatsuki member. That being said, we know all of the remaining members of Akatsuki proper. They are: Madara, who had revealed himself as the leader to the others upon Pain's death. Naruto, the nine tails jinchuuriki. And an enigmatic figure known as 'Zetsu', who has a strange plant around his head and is divided neatly in half vertically to be black and white. He was only typically seen melding into the ground or walls. There is also the likely possibility of Orochimaru's right hand man, Kabuto, assisting Madara. So expect the remains of Orochimaru's followers to fight as well.">Continued
Is the sound village even still a thing?
>>45608489We hit them hard, but they exist as decentralized cells. There's always the chance we missed some.
>>45608521Huh.Any attempts at recruiting? Having some sound based allies would be neat.
>>45608379"Hidan was vaguely aware of Madara's planned forces." Inoichi goes on. "Madara had apparently claimed to be preparing a force one hundred thousand strong. Hidan had caught a glimpse of one of these soldiers of his, and they seem to bear a great resemblance to 'Zetsu'. We are not entirely sure of their capabilities. That's as much as we can tell you about their force. Hidan was aware of several bases that Akatsuki would use, but not of where Madara typically stayed. We plan on scouting out the locations he knew, but we don't expect any big breakthrough. That's all."The Kage all think on this info."One hundred thousand, plus whatever other support he can gather." the Kazekage muses. "It will surely take all of us working together to defeat him.""We have no time to lose." the Raikage stands up. "We will all return to our villages and prepare. Our next convening will be to decide our exact strategy. Hopefully by then we will have amassed all the support we can. I wish you all the best."With that, the other Kage and their aides get up to leave, save for the Mizukage, who Itachi asks to stay briefly.>A.Stay here and watch>B.Go catch up to someone before they go>C.Talk to one of the people here>D.Other
>>45608635>A.Stay here and watchWe are the Hokage's bodyguard.I do wanna ask Inoichi if Madara could use his sharingan to implant false information into Madara's head to lead us into traps, but that would be questioning his abilities...
>>45608635>C.Talk to one of the people hereInoichi. Ask if Hidan knew anything about "Madara"'s abilities other than his teleporting.
>>45608689into Hidan's head*That sentence made noooo sense.
>>45608635>>A.Stay here and watch
>>45608635>B. KurotsuchiThe next time we see her we may be at war. Granted we'll be on the same side, but some things may need to be said before then.
>>45608739Dammit, Kon shouldn't have to go to war a virgin.
>>45608778He shouldn't have go to war sober either. I'm betting Kon is also a drunken master like Lee. That's why Laze won't let us bust it out until we're really in trouble
>>45608635>AI'm ready for sexykage rage.
>>45608635>C. Talk to one of the people hereShikamaru and Shikaku. If Madara has 100k+ army, he has to be storing it somewhere. It'd be obvious on the surface, so it'd have to be underground. What locations would be viable for this?
>>45608861Except instead of taijutsu it's "OH GOD WHY!!!!!!!!"jutsu.
>>45608861Kon's monkey style devolves into just acting like a rabid monkey with feces throwing and biting peoples faces off.
>>45608968Oh, our opponents wish it was their faces we were biting off. When monkeys fight, they go straight for the balls. Rip them right off.
>>45608968Feces that EXPLODES!>Now that's what I call a stink bomb
>>45608902His ultimate Sage technique is to drink so much that everyone else gets drunk.
>>45609009Sage mode healing powers would probably apply to healing the drunken state. Could be unstoppable in drinking contests.
>>45608996You son of a bitch, you made me laugh!
>>45609009>>45609054...What if we fermented the fruit from monkey mountain and turn it into alcohol? Chakra boosting booze!
>>45608689>>45608728>>45608877You decide to stay for the next portion as well. Before Inoichi leaves, you catch him for a quick question."Did Hidan know anything else about Madara?" you ask. "What he was capable of besides his teleporting?""Afraid not." Inoichi replies. "He had only seen Madara twice. He also seemed to not really care at all. The change of leadership had little impact in his mind. It seems Hidan was just not one to pry. Unfortunate for us."With that, Inoichi leaves, and you turn your attention to the Mizukage and Hokage's conversation."I have some information that you would likely be very interested in." Itachi begins. "With B's help, we interrogated the three tails and learned some astonishing news. Both the Third and Fourth Mizukage were under the effect of Madara's genjutsu. The Mist had been under his control for decades."The Mizukage, listening intently, stands straight up, her eyes wide."What?!" she exclaims. "You mean the entire period of the Bloody Mist is all Madara's fault?!"Her two aides look very concerned as well."I'm afraid so." the Sixth continues. "All of the Mist's misfortune seems to have stemmed from him. Madara has been playing us all from behind the scenes."The Mizukage's fists are shaking."He will rue the day he crossed me!" she yells, to no one in particular. "Our alliance will grind him to dust! He will wish he really died to Hashirama!"The Mizukage continues her rant for a while until her aides are eventually able to calm her down."It seems we have more of an interest in this war than we thought." the MIzukage sighs. "We still want to iron out our deal later, but now this is personal. Madara ruined my village's credibility. He can't just walk away now. The Mist will give the alliance their full support."After talking a bit longer, the Mizukage and her aides take their leave. It's just you with the rest of the Leaf ninja that attended the meeting now.>A.Talk to someone>B.Leave>C.Other
>>45609101It didn't seem to have a high sugar content, we'll need a lot of the fruit to get anything decent proof. Though that would just give it even better senjutsu-boosting properties.
>>45609142>B.LeaveRight, let's hit up our friends and get started on preparing for a war.
>>45609142>A.Talk to someoneAsk Itachi why he doesn't get a lung transplant if eye transplants are possible.
>>45609238Because he doesn't need to, Shizune's got his lung problems well-treated. And if he did get a lung transplant, he'd be laid up in physical therapy for months while a war is on. It's just not practical.
So, I'm thinking, and we may actually be in a better position to fight this war than the canon Allied Shinobi Forces would be. Like, here's our advantages and disadvantages, compared to canon.>AdvantagesThe Uchiha clan is still alive. They're one of the largest clans in Konoha, means we've got around a thousand more ninja. Tsunade isn't Hokage, so the greatest healer in the world can devote her time to healing instead of organizing soldiers.We've got four times the number of sages as canon did, even if one of them is going to be of limited help due to his injuries and missing arm.Rasa is still alive, gives us an extra very powerful combatant.No Naruto to distract everyone with his histrionics and lead B into dangerous situations.Obito doesn't have the Jinchuriki available as zombies, means that he can't use the Tailed Beasts through his Paths of PainSasuke is on our side from the beginning.>DisadvantagesPain didn't revive our forces, so we've got about 200 more casualties than we had in canon. A good number of them were probably ninja. One of them was Chouza Akamichi, so we're down a giant.Naruto is on the enemy team, so the army of clones will be fighting against us, not for us. Said clones should be weaker, though, no access to Tailed Beast Chakra Mode. So all in all, I think we're doing a bit better than canon. Of course, that will change once the Ten-Tails gets revived. Without Orochimaru to revive the dead Hokages, and without Naruto to give everyone Nine Tails Chakra Cloaks we'll be having a much harder time. But for the war itself, if not the giant monster, we'll be solid.
>>45609226>>45609300Everything seems to have been handled here, so you get ready to leave."That was quite enlightening." Shikamaru says. "I guess I've got a lot to think about in the next month or so before we get our forces in order. Kon, let's get all the guys together some time to hash things out."You nod in affirmation, then leave the others to talk among themselves.It's late. A whole lot later than you are usually out, but the light of the full moon illuminates the village well enough. You're heading back to the restaurant, when you notice Sasuke. He's sitting on top of some kind of jungle gym, smack dab in the middle of a playground. He looks to be deep in thought.You go over to greet him.>A.Hey Sasuke, you're out late>B.You want me to fill you in on the meeting?>C.You look like you've got something on your mind>D.Say something else>E.Other
>>45609468>C.You look like you've got something on your mind
>>45609142>ASee what the shika two think of the gained Intel Otherwise, let's talk to Neji some, ask how the clan is doing and are they ready for war...suggest he invests in a tougher vest..
>>45609465You're forgetting that there's a good chance the four Kage as well as the Yin half of the Kyuubi has been cut free from the Shikigami.
>>45609468>>C.You look like you've got something on your mind
>>45609511Minato was the only one in the Shinigami's stomach, by the way
>>>C.You look like you've got something on your mindWanna talk bud? Filling in on the meeting? Your thinking about Hinata ain't you
>>45609511>>45609523Shit, you're right, the First, Second and Third Hokage's should be on the side of the zombies. I don't think the Fourth will be, he'll be too busy being double dead from having Yin Kurama pulled out of him, but that does still strengthen the zombie side significantly. Well, fuck, I guess we're screwed even earlier than I thought.
>>45609465Think we can make an Impact Chakra Cloak to substitute?
>>45609468>D.Say something else"Aren't you a sight for sore eyes."
>>45609545No. We don't have nearly the chakra capacity to pull that off, nor the protagonist bullshit to improvise a new move like that out of nowhere. And even if we could, it wouldn't be as useful as an across the board power boost like the Nine Tails Cloaks gives. No, based on the currently observable evidence, we're completely fucked. I have faith that Laze wouldn't do that to us, though, so there must be something he's planning. Can't think of what, but at least that means it should be a fun surprise.
>>45609640Well I mostly meant a cloak just for Kon...I didn't expect him to pull it off for an entire army.
>>45609664Oh. Well then, we already have that, actually. We just don't use it because it hasn't been particularly useful against any of our opponents.
>>45609479>>45609520>>45609539>>45609540You make your way over to Sasuke to try and talk, leaning against the structure below him."You look like you've got something on your mind." you say. "Care to share?""Heh. Sure. Might make me feel better." Sasuke looks down. "I was thinking about what Madara said. And what that means. And some other stuff. It's complicated.""I've heard about our clan's past." Sasuke sighs. "The 'Curse of Hatred'. How most Uchiha that gain power start to lose themselves in hatred. Madara was said to be like that. I was thinking that maybe the only reason I wasn't was because of Itachi. Because of his genjutsu. If he hadn't influence the whole clan, who knows what things could be like today? I can't say with confidence that I would be able to escape the curse of hatred. When I thought about it, the clan being under Kotoamatsukami was almost like I was in the Infinite Tsukuyomi. Everything was far better than it had any right to be. So I guess I can see where they're coming from, at least. There are some things that they just can't experience in this world. I don't want them to succeed, but I don't want to deny their cause. I kind of get it. The 'me' that is free from the curse of hatred only exists because of a mass genjutsu like it."Sasuke looks up to the full moon, prompting you to do the same."Like the Infinite Tsukuyomi."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsEcuJql1Sk&index=5&list=PL9079B89C6A2EE759You think you see something rise up in front of the moon. At that moment, just briefly, you feel like the summer moon turns red. It almost looks like a sharingan. But it's only for a moment. As there doesn't actually seem to have been anything in front of the moon after all, you quickly put the thought out of your head.Though you can't shake the feeling that something is very odd.>End of Chapter 66Wow, bit of a short thread yet againAnyway, next thread should be on FridayTwitter is @LazeQM
>>45609933Aaand we just got dumped into our Road to Ninja aka limited tsukiyomi. I'm ready Laze, im ready
>>45609933We're in Road To Ninja now, aren't we? Well, this should be an entertaining few threads before we get back to the real timeline. I wonder: Will our Naruto being evil mean that this Menma will be good? Should be fun to find out. Thanks for running, Laze. I look forward to seeing you Friday.
>>45609933So, how are we gonna blow up the moon?
>>45610008So is the Kon there evil?
>>45610019We collapse it in on itself after perfecting our Rasengan variant.
So, what's the over/under on this universe having Saeko Karagowa be the Fourth Hokage who sacrificed themselves to seal the Nine-Tails? If canon Road to Ninja can have Sakura's dad be the one who did it, I don't think it would be much weirder to have one of Jiraiya's other students be the one to take that role in this version.
>>45610041Kon won't exist there. So no one will know who we are. Except Sauce.
Any previews of the alters Laze? Kon rolling in babes
I hope this world is like canon world, a slight alteration, Kon died as a baby in the nine tails attack.
Wow, so I just realized that I may in fact have set you guys up for major disappointment. I was going to go in an entirely different direction with this. Sasuke's monologue there was supposed to be the big hint. Hopefully you guys aren't too disappointed with what I'm actually going to do
There should be an evil counterpart of Kon called Kaizo or something. He should have a name change like Menma.
>>45610158Welp, and now a couple of you got really close
>>45610158Yeah, I just realized it before you posted, based on this guy's >>45610131 comment. We're doing It's A Wonderful Life by showing Sasuke and Kon the canon timeline, aren't we?
>>45610158Fuck.... We are already in place it....fuck. Our sauske is gonna change or something. Oh God... Are we gonna get
>>45610216We've been in the Genjutsu World all along. The moon flashing red was like what happened in Road To Ninja when the illusion started breaking down. Kon never existed.
>>45610216Have we been in Infinite Tsukuyomi all along? Are we actually a figment of canon Sasuke's dream in IT? Did Madara/Kaguya win?
>>45610271Holy shit... We're are canon sauskes perfect best friend.... Oh shit. We are the dream.... Mind fucking blown. We are sauskes imaginary friend
>>45610271>>45610368....Are we Sasuke's spirit guide/animal?
Imagine the mind fuck going up to a monument dedicated to the ninetails attack, Kon sees his name.
LAZE MY HEAD IS SO FULL OF WHAT THE FUCK RIGHT NOW
>>45610397Maybe his conscious?
Kon is gonna suddenly be in a world where he doesn't exist, his perants never met, uncle never opened the store, we are a null. Worse still we may look a little like a stone nin suddenly appearing in the Leaf...
Assuming that this is the canon timeline we're going to and we're not just an imaginary friend of Sasuke's, it's going to be kind of a let down for Kon. Not for the audience, don't get me wrong, I'm sure it will be entertaining to interact with canon. I just mean that Sasuke will get hammered with canon Sasuke's whole...thing, but the alternate fate Kon will find is either "doesn't exist" or "background character". Not exactly the greatest mindfuck you could have come up with, Obito.
>>45610436Great, we're Jiminy fucking Cricket.
It sorta makes sense.>Sasuke has the perfect team. No knuckle-headed Naruto and no annoying fangirl Sakura to bug him.>His brother and family are still with him. Even better, his Itachi is Hokage just like how he felt he deserved after he spoke to the Edo Kages.>Naruto "the loser who always gets in his way" is now the villain.
>>45610471Worse, not only would Kon's parents have not met, they'd probably still be dead. His mom certainly would be, all of Jiraiya's students are gone.
>>45610514Even if it turns out that we're not an illusion, those factors are still going to seriously fuck with Sasuke's head and make him start wondering if we are. Honestly, the two universes are so different that I can't see him knowing which one to believe in. A world where everything seems to go right for you is just as unlikely as the one where everything goes wrong.
So Laze, how are all the Kage holding up with Madara showing up?
>>45610586They're all pretty anxious. The stories of his fights with Hashirama are the stuff of legend. Even the slightest possibility that they could be going up against him is enough to send chills down the spine. But an alliance like this has never been seen before in history. They all have no doubt that this will be the strongest force ever gathered on this Earth. If it can't defeat Madara and his army, no one can
Are you enjoying us all loosing our minds Laze?Secondly are peoples opinions of the Leaf improving?
>>45610630 Is there a character that could even possibly EVEN TOUCH Madara Uchiha? Let alone defeat him. And I’m not talking about Edo Tensei Uchiha Madara. I’m not talking about Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara either. Hell, I’m not even talking about Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan and Rinnegan doujutsus (with the rikodou abilities and being capable of both Amateratsu and Tsukuyomi genjutsu), equipped with his Gunbai, a perfect Susano’o, control of the juubi and Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju’s DNA implanted in him so he has mokuton kekkei genkai and can perform yin yang release ninjutsu while being an expert in kenjutsu and taijutsu.
>>45610741It's kind of funnyIn general, yes
>>45610752I’m also not talking about Kono Yo no Kyūseishu Futarime no Rikudō Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan (which is capable of Enton Amaterasu, Izanagi, Izanami and the Tsyukuyomi Genjutsu), his two original Rinnegan (which grant him Chikushōdō, Shuradō, Tendō, Ningendō, Jigokudō, Gakidō, Gedō, Banshō Ten’in, Chibaku Tensei, Shinra Tensei, Tengai Shinsei and Banbutsu Sōzō) and a third Tomoe Rinnegan on his forehead, capable of using Katon, Fūton, Raiton, Doton, Suiton, Mokuton, Ranton, Inton, Yōton and even Onmyōton Jutsu, equipped with his Gunbai(capable of using Uchihagaeshi) and a Shakujō because he is a master in kenjutsu and taijutsu, a perfect Susano’o (that can use Yasaka no Magatama ), control of both the Juubi and the Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju’s DNA and face implanted on his chest, his four Rinbo Hengoku Clones guarding him and nine Gudōdama floating behind him AFTER he absorbed Senjutsu from the First Hokage, entered Rikudō Senjutsu Mode, cast Mugen Tsukuyomi on everybody and used Shin: Jukai Kōtan so he can use their Chakra while they are under Genjutsu.
>>45610768I’m definitely NOT Talking about sagemode sage of the six paths Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Super Saiyan 4 Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, Rinnegan, Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, and Geass doujutsus, equipped with Shining Trapezohedron while casting Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann as his Susanoo, controlling the Gold Experience Requiem stand, having become the original vampire after Alucard, able to tap into the speedforce, wearing the Kamen Rider Black RX suit and Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju’s DNA implanted in him so he has mokuton kekkei genkai and can perform yin yang release ninjutsu while being an expert in kenjutsu and taijutsu and having eaten Popeye’s spinach. I’m talking about sagemode sage of the six paths Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Legendary Super Saiyan 4 Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, Rinnegan, Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, and Geass doujutsus, equipped with his Shining Trapezohedron while casting Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann as his Susanoo, controlling the Gold Experience Requiem stand, having become the original vampire after having absorbed Alucard as well as a God Hand, able to tap into the speedforce, wearing the Kamen Rider Black RX suit, with Kryptonian DNA implanted in him and having eaten Popeye’s spinach while possessing quantum powers like Dr. Manhattan and having mastered Hokuto Shinken.
>>45610778How would Madara get the Kamen Rider RX suit? That just doesn't make sense, he's never been thrown into space. Yes, that's my problem with this scenario, I'm fine with all the rest
>>45610901>>45610778Madara vs Kaguya from DBZ Human Quest. Who wins?
I wonder if anyone else for our would will be in the same tsukiyomi as us? Like if this is RtN will sauske be our sauske? And our foe is a sauske who fell to the curse of hate?
Imagine if Kon only existed in the single reality, only this one. Let's gather a sample of all the demon chakra again momentary godhood and go full Madoka, project Kon across time and space, Kon appears across every world, becoming the Kamina of the Naruto world, waking everyone up. (God damn that Gurren laggen dream world sequences and their waking up).
>>45610940No anon, we all lose.
