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

>>45988322FUCKINGHYPEWE'RE STARTING TWO POINT FIVE HOURS EARLYThis is what I needed to face what will otherwise be an awful week.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axAUn85fv0U&index=4&list=PLCAX4az9U5wgLq_gvwVeoA3mZEI79NfQSYou sleep in fairly late, this quite possibly being your last chance for a while. When you get up for breakfast, your uncle is already hard at work in the kitchen, but you'll see him plenty this evening, so you're not worried. You eat, then wave goodbye as you head outside.You are leaving the village to head to the Allied Shinobi Forces Strategy Meeting tomorrow. Today will likely be the last chance you have to talk to many people on casual terms for a while. You think about who you want to go see.>A.Go see Sasuke>B.Go see Kakashi Sensei>C.Go see Konohamaru>D.Go see Tenten>E.Go see somebody else (Specify)>F.Don't visit with anyone>G.Other
>>45988422>C. Go see KonohamaruMake sure he listens to his sensei while we're gone. We'll be back before he knows it.
>>45988422>D.Go see Tenten
>>45988422>A.Go see Sasuke
>>45988322And of course you start running right when I have to go to work.
>>45988422>D.Go see Tenten>B.Go see Kakashi Sensei>A.Go see SasukeIn that order if we can.
>>45988422>C.Go see Konohamaru
>>45988422>>C.Go see Konohamaru
>>45988422>>D.Go see Tenten
>>45988322Laze is Somnious, right?
Your all brosWhats the best way to get an artfag to draw something for me? Every time i've ever tried to get something from a draw thread its been ignore
>>45988437>>45988608>>45988627There are plenty of people you want to see, and you'll try your best to get time for them all today. You decide to make your first stop Konohamaru. He's one of the few you definitely won't get a chance to see soon.You find him with his two newly minted Chunin teammates outside the academy. They're all gathered around their Sensei."You better come back alright, Sensei!" Moegi tells Ebisu. "If we're not allowed to come, then that means you have to be fine without us, right?""Well kids, who can say?" Ebisu chuckles. "There always comes a time when a student must let go of their instructor, whether it is of their volition or not. Of course I'd rather live a long life myself, but my own teacher gave his life for the village, and I don't think he had any regrets. To live up to Choza Sensei's example wouldn't be so bad. Anyway, you can't know that everything will be okay. So I want you all to be ready to set out on your own if it comes to it. You're all Chunin now. I'd love to be able to come back and continue teaching you all, but more important to me is to know that you can go on without me if it comes to it.""Don't talk like that, Sensei!" Konohamaru shouts. "You're definitely coming back, we still need you to teach us!"No one seems to have noticed your approach.>A.I remember when you didn't want his instruction, Konohamaru>B.He'll come back safe for sure>C.Your Sensei is right, you have to grow up sometime, Konohamaru>D.Other
>>45988793No, this is my first quest
>>45988863>A.I remember when you didn't want his instruction, Konohamaru
>>45988863>C.Your Sensei is right, you have to grow up sometime, Konohamaru
>>45988863>A.I remember when you didn't want his instruction, Konohamaru>D. But then, you weren't too fond of me either at the time.
>>45988793Somnius is in Europe for a semester, he's not running until he gets back in may or June
>>45988886HHMMMmm. Sounds like something a hiding Som would say.
>>45988863>D.Other"I still get lessons from Kakashi-sensei all the time. Ebisu isn't done teaching, you just need to find yourself until he's ready to continue. I did that when I met Sarutobi-sensei remember?"
>>45988889>>45988914>>45988920The contrast between now and your first meeting with the two is striking. You can't help but smile."I remember when you didn't want his instruction, Konohamaru." you say, making your presence known. "Though, you weren't too fond of me then either.""Bro!" Konohamaru makes his way over to you. "Well, that was a long time ago! I've matured now! Ebisu is a great teacher, and he still has so much we can learn from him!""I still get lessons from Kakashi Sensei all the time." you assure Konohamaru. "Ebisu will still be there to teach you, he just wants you to be alright on your own.""Yeah, I get it." Konohamaru looks down. "I guess we're just kind of anxious since we're not allowed to go. If anything happened, we'd just have to deal with it. It sucks not being able to make a difference. You're going too, right bro? Man, I wish I could go so bad. This is gonna be the most important battle in the history of the village, but I can't take part. How am I supposed to become Hokage like this?">A.There will still be chances for you to prove yourself>B.This wouldn't necessarily make you a good candidate for Hokage>C.Maybe you still can take part>D.Other
>>45989269>A.There will still be chances for you to prove yourself
>>45989269>D. By doing exactly what the Hokage's supposed to do. Keep the village safe, even if everyone else is absent.
>>45989269>A.There will still be chances for you to prove yourself"I succeeded in Shizaru's test. Achieve that and your path to Hokage will be one step closer.'If we line it up with the fight, we can have Oozaru out of the mountain to fight with us while Konohamaru is in the mountain. We knew how much time it took, just line it our time line up...He's smart. He could give figure out.
>>45989447That sounds an awful lot like cheating.
>>45989308>>45989317>>45989324You can tell Konohamaru is pretty frustrated. He reaches down his shirt and pulls out the First Hokage's necklace, then frowns at it."When Lady Tsunade gave this to me, I said I wouldn't die before becoming Hokage." Konohamaru grumbles. "But I didn't intend for that to mean I wouldn't do anything dangerous.""There will still be chances for you to prove yourself." you insist. "Even after this war, the village will still need protecting. For now, just look after the village while everyone else is gone.""Okay." Konohamaru sighs as he puts the necklace back. "I guess the more time I get to train, the better I can look when I do need to save everyone, huh?"You say farewell to Konohamaru and his team, then leave then to their teacher once more. You still have several people you want to see.>A.Go see Tenten>B.Go see Sasuke>C.Go see Kakashi Sensei>D.Go see someone else (Specify)>E.Other
>>45989605>C.Go see Kakashi Sensei
>>45989605>>A.Go see TentenDon't we need to get to put the reverse seal on herself or something? So she can teleport to us? I remember somebody mentioning this in a previous thread.
>>45989605>A.Go see Tenten
>>45989605>A.Go see TentenWonder if Komohamaru will ever get a chance to show his stuff. I don't think he's actually been in any big fights and he's probably as strong as us right now
>>45989708I wouldn't say as strong as Kon.... He is definitely at Jonin level though.
>>45989644>>45989675>>45989703>>45989709You decide to meet with your teacher next. After a bit of searching, you find him at the KIA monument. You've seen him here before, but those times, he always had a somewhat pained expression on his face. This time is different. Like he's made a resolution to whoever he came to see. Just after you arrive, Kakashi turns to greet you."Ah, Kon. Morning." he says, waving. "You're headed out early to HQ, right? So with the Hokage tomorrow. Most of the village's Jonin will be a couple of days behind you.">A.Ask what he's thinking>B.Ask what he plans to do in this war>C.Ask about something else (Write-in)>D.Wish him luck and thank him for everything>E.Other
>>45989942>A.Ask what he's thinking>B.Ask what he plans to do in this war
>>45989942>>C.Ask about something else (Write-in)Let's ask him about his team. What it was like as a Genin when he was a kid.
>>45989942>A.Ask what he's thinking>C.Ask about something else (Write-in)You fought in a war when you were recently promoted Jonin too, right?
>>45988831Have something for them to draw that piques their interest.
>>45990056>>45990084>>45990178>>45990180You want to know a bit of what's going on in your teacher's head."So what is it you're thinking about, Sensei?" you ask. "Do you have something you want to do in this war?""Oh, I've been thinking about a lot. Mostly about the past, but about the future, too." Kakashi replies, looking back to the monument. "I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to fight Madara. But they will likely need me elsewhere. Maybe if I get a chance somewhere in the war, I'll take him on. But my duty to those that are still alive outweighs my duty to those that have already passed."Kakashi seems to be getting sentimental."You know, I don't think I ever told you about when I became a Jonin, did I?" Kakashi asks. You shake your head in response. Kakashi has made brief references here and there, but he's never told the whole story.You and Kakashi sit down and eat some lunch as he tells you about his time in the Third Great Ninja War. How he lost his eye, and was gifted one by his best friend before his death. You get the feeling that this isn't something Kakashi would have told anyone so lightly before. After his story, the two of you stand up."I've lost a lot, Kon." your teacher says. "But as long as there are still things for me to lose, I'll fight to stop it. So you do your part to stay safe."You bid Kakashi farewell and set off to your next destination.>A.Go see Tenten>B.Go see Sasuke>C.Go see someone else (Specify)>D.Other
>>45990429>A.Go see Tenten
I just want to hug kakashi. I think he needs it.
>>45990470>>45990482>>45990520>>45990541Next on your list is to see Tenten. You head to the weapon shop you're so familiar with to find her sealing a whole mess of weapons into several scrolls."Hey, Kon." she greets you, looking up from her work to wave briefly. "Just finishing all my preparations. Now that I've got my seal on all of these and have them memorized, I should be good to go. I can unleash a volley, then be anywhere on the battlefield before you know it. Pretty cool, huh?">A.That is pretty awesome>B.Tell her about her assignment>C.Ask if she wanted to fight>D.Other
>>45990636>A.That is pretty awesome>C.Ask if she wanted to fight
>>45990429>B. Go see SasukeBros before potential waifu targets
>>45990636>A.That is pretty awesome>B.Tell her about her assignment
>>45990684>Not saving the best for last.
>>45990673>>45990694>>45990744Just imagining facing that move is making you dizzy. You doubt there are many that could actually defend against it."That is pretty awesome." you reply. "Were you looking forward to being able to fight?""Well, I'll never get a better chance to prove myself than this." Tenten says. "After this, everyone will know that I'm the greatest kunoichi of all time! I can just imagine the look on everyone's faces! I mean, it might be a bit early for me to assume, but I think I can surpass Lady Tsunade. I just need one chance to shine."Tenten looks pretty pumped. It's like she's been waiting her entire life for this moment.>A.Just wish her luck>B.Tell her that the Hokage thinks she has a higher strategic advantage than in battle>C.Tell her not to get ahead of herself>D.Other
>>45990972>B.Tell her that the Hokage thinks she has a higher strategic advantage than in battle
>>45990429Oh, good, we have the context needed to give Obito a real bad time. Because now we can respond to him revealing his identity with disbelief that Obito would have arranged for Rin to die horribly, so he can't really be him. That should shake him, give us a better shot in that fight.
>>45990972>>B.Tell her that the Hokage thinks she has a higher strategic advantage than in battle
>>45990972>B.Tell her that the Hokage thinks she has a higher strategic advantage than in battleCan we give her impact tags to add to her collection of attacks?
>>45991064>>45991126>>45991129>>45991136>>45991147Tenten's excitement makes this next part difficult to say. Hopefully she won't be too resistant to the idea."That Hokage thinks you have a higher strategic advantage than in battle." you start. "He wants you at HQ ready to deploy forces to anywhere on the battlefield, instead of being out there fighting, yourself."Tenten stops sealing weapons."He does, huh?" Tenten stares down at the scrolls for a while, before sighing. "That makes sense. I mean, it's a smart move. I don't want to ruin everything by glory-hounding. I mean, I'll still be fulfilling an important role."Tenten rests the side of her face on her palm and sighs again."I really wanted to get a chance to show off, though.">A.I'm sure people will still be impressed>B.You might still get a chance to fight>C.Your job will be much more important than just fighting>D.Other
>>45991352>A.I'm sure people will still be impressed>B.You might still get a chance to fightin fact given how things are liable to go sideways you might be the only person stopping thing from disaster.
>>45991352>A.I'm sure people will still be impressed>B.You might still get a chance to fight
>>45991352>B.You might still get a chance to fight>D.Other"Don't worry, I expect that pretty much everyone is going to have to fight by the time this is all through."
>>45991401Very true. If the Ten Tails matures enough to start throwing around Tailed Beast Balls (though it's are more cone-shaped. Tailed Beast Spikes?), Obito is going to target HQ. Having Tenten there to be able to teleport everyone out could prevent a lot of casualties. And the Ten Tails is almost certainly getting to that stage of development, what kind of final boss gets defeated before it can show off its true form? So yeah, Tenten is definitely going to wind up being a big damn hero.
>>45991352>B.You might still get a chance to fight
>>45991401>>45991416>>45991440You try to lighten Tenten's disappointment a bit."I'm sure people will still be impressed." you start. "In fact, a lot of things could go wrong. You might be the only person that could prevent a disaster. Besides, I get the feeling that you may get the chance to fight before this is all through anyway.""The thing is, I know you're right Kon, but the little girl in me wants to show off how cool she is now by defeating some powerful enemy instead of moving other people around really fast." Tenten gives one more sigh before standing up. "But this isn't about me. The best thing I can do is serve however they think is the most effective. I'll do as I'm directed. Still really hoping I get that fight, though."You talk with Tenten a bit longer before saying farewell, then you leave her to finish her preparations. Next, you head to the Uchiha compound to see Sasuke. You find him sitting with his mother, relaxing while he can, it seems. He's wearing the flak vest now, under his cloak."Hey Kon." he greets you. "You're leaving tomorrow, right? Good luck.">A.Ask how the new eyes are>B.Ask how he'll handle this war>C.Wish him luck himself>D.Other
>>45991744>A.Ask how the new eyes are>B.Ask how he'll handle this war>C.Wish him luck himself
>>45991744>A. Ask how the new eyes are.>D. "Better be amazing, if you hope to keep up with me." Cocky Grin(tm)
>>45991744>>A.Ask how the new eyes are"So how are your eyes? I mean Itachi's eyes. Wait, their your eyes now so..."
>>45991744>A.Ask how the new eyes are>C.Wish him luck himself
>>45991744>A.Ask how the new eyes are"Can you finally see your brother's vision?" Worth it.
>>45991744>D.Other"But can you see why kids love the taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch?
>>45991764>>45991780>>45991824https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4WSE-jyMp0&list=PLCAX4az9U5wgLq_gvwVeoA3mZEI79NfQS&index=5Sasuke looks pretty ready. Where you once saw hesitation and wavering self confidence, there is nothing but resolve now."Good luck to you too." you shoot back. "So how are the new eye treating you?""They're pretty good. Itachi and I trained together to further master them, and sure enough, no more blindness." Sasuke answers. "I can form Susanoo now, as well. I think I can finally say that I'm just about on the same level as my brother."You were starting to think you'd never hear that sentiment from Sasuke."So how will you handle this war?" you ask. "Is there a certain thing you want to do?"You are already anticipating Sasuke's answer."I'm going to confront Naruto again." Sasuke says. "Not immediately, of course. I will help out the war effort where they need me. But I just feel like Naruto and I are... supposed to face each other. More than that, I have to do what I can to come through for them. I'm still working out the exact words, but it's as much for me as for them."You look to Sasuke's side and see his hand gripping a headband that's not his own.>A.If you think you need to, then I support you>B.Let someone else handle it, you'll be more useful elsewhere>C.You are way too invested in this>D.Other
>>45992190>A.If you think you need to, then I support you
>>45992190>B.Let someone else handle it, you'll be more useful elsewhereBecause I want to fight Naruto.
>>45992190>>A.If you think you need to, then I support you
>>45992190>B.Let someone else handle it, you'll be more useful elsewhere
>>45992190>A.If you think you need to, then I support you"Still I the only way I could one-up you with that would be beating Madara on my own."
>>45992190>A.If you think you need to, then I support youSo if we get a destiny fight with someone, Sasuke has to let us fight it.Madara is a good choice.
>>45992190>D.Other"So is it okay if I take on his goon squad, then? I've been wanting to get back at them ever since they betrayed my hospitality. That was just rude."
>>45992190>>C.You are way too invested in thisEven now i dont know why he cares so much, maybe for Hinata but why Naruto.
>>45992384The illusion made him see that Naruto would help him no matter how far he fell. Sasuke doesn't want to be one uped by canonaruto.
>>45992384Probably has something to do with what he saw in the alternate timeline. Something to do with seeing how their situations could be reversed, or something like that. I hope so, anyway. Because the only alternative is that Naruto somehow still has Asura's chakra in him, and it's calling to Sasuke's Indra chakra. And if that's the case then it confirms that Kon doesn't have Asura in him, and is going to be tossed to the side just like everybody else lacking Ototsuki-derived chakra.
>>45992190>B.Let someone else handle it, you'll be more useful elsewhere>C.You are way too invested in this
>>45992211>>45992234>>45992246>>45992256>>45992297>>45992316It's hard to tell exactly what's going through Sasuke's head sometimes, but he looks like he knows what he wants to do. You're not going to stop him from doing this."If you think you need to, then I support you." you reply. "I know you've thought about this a lot, so I think it's best for you to resolve it too. But just remember we're still here to help you out if you need it.""Oh, I won't forget." Sasuke says, relaxing. "I know the only reason I've come this far is thanks to the help of so many other people, you included. So I don't intend to let you down either."You speak with Sasuke and his mother a bit longer before leaving. It's still not quite evening yet, so you could have time to see someone else. Or you could head home and see if your uncle is ready to close up.>A.Go see someone else (Specify)>B.Go home>C.Other
>>45992368I guess we'll end up fighting Sage Kabuto. We don't really have any major enemies seeing as we just demolished everyone that wasn't Kazuku, and we just killed him the other day.That or Kabuto is going to revive the four Hokage instead of Orochi doing so, and we're going to have to fight all of them, as well as our mother.
>>45992612>A.Go see someone else (Specify)Haku!
>>45992612>A.Go see someone else (Specify)NEJI!
>>45992612>>A.Go see someone else (Specify)>SakuraHumor me
>>45992612>>A.Go see someone else (Specify)Check up on Neji.
>>45992630I'm not sure that he could revive all four of them. Hashirama and Tobirama are sealed by Itachi, the stupid plot device mask wouldn't let him get access to them. And Minato is probably too drained from being double-murdered by Obito and his own son. We're probably just going to wind up fighting Hiruzen. Which is for the best, he's the one we've got an emotional connection to.
>>45992726Tell him not to die
>>45992698>>45992726Thinking over who's left, you decide to go see Neji. He'll be coming with you tomorrow, but it might be nice to use this time to talk on casual terms.You head to the Hokage's office, but Neji isn't there. The Hokage is here, with his wife and son."I guess it's okay for me to stay, then." Shizune says. "Lady Tsunade is more than enough to handle the medical corps. I'll just run the hospital here while she's gone.""I really wish you'd stop putting yourself down, Shizune. I didn't trust myself to your care on a whim." the Sixth says, before turning to you. "Kon, did you need something?"You say you're looking for Neji, and the Hokage directs you to the Hyuuga compound. You thank him and leave.Arriving at the Hyuuga compound, you're a bit nervous. You haven't been here before. Luckily, at the mention of Neji, you're let through without incident. You see Neji standing in the yard, as a young girl watches him from the porch.They both take notice of you as you approach."Good evening, Kon." Neji greets you. "Making the rounds? I have no doubt that our ninja are all well prepared.">A.Ask how he's doing>B.Ask who the girl is>C.Introduce yourself>D.Other
>>45993032>D.Other"Oh, me neither. But it still feels nice to have one last conversation with everyone while things are still calm."
>>45993032>A.Ask how he's doing>B.Ask who the girl isIs she your new bodyguard, since your the head of the house? Surprised Sasuke doesn't have one yet.
>>45993032>A.Ask how he's doing>B.Ask who the girl is>D.Other"Oh, me neither. But it still feels nice to have one last conversation with everyone while things are still calm."
>>45993032>A. Ask how he's doing>B. "That Hanabi? ...wow."
>>45993032>D.Other"You make it sound like it's a chore. Really, I just like talking to people.""I don't think we've all been introduced?"
>>45993032>A.Ask how he's doing
After this we need to go see Kiba, see if he's mastered entering sage mode yet.
>>45993068>>45993113>>45993121>>45993166As Neji converses with you, the girl stares somewhat blankly from the porch. You turn your attention back to Neji."Oh, I don't either." you respond. "But it feels nice to have one last conversation with everyone while things are still calm. So how are you?""Just refining my skills, as usual." Neji replies. "This will be my most important trial. All of the training and attention I've received will be paid back here."You glance at the girl again. She's done almost no moving since you got here."So who's the girl?" you ask. Neji responds immediately."This is Lady Hanabi, current heir of the Hyuuga Clan!" Neji makes a gesture towards her. "Lady Hanabi, this is Kon Karagowa. I've told you of his exploits, you remember, I'm sure."The girl stands up and approaches you before bowing."It's nice to meet you, Kon Karagowa." she says. "Thank you for always assisting Neji."Hanabi turns to Neji."Neji, you don't still have to be so formal." she says, face still stoic as ever. "When you return we will be equals, after all.""Yes, that's right isn't it?" Neji forces a smile.>A.Ask Neji something (Write-in)>B.Ask Hanabi something (Write-in)>C.Wish them luck and head home>D.Other
>>45993490>A.Ask Neji something (Write-in)>B.Ask Hanabi something (Write-in)"So you are going through with it, then?"
>>45993531>D.OtherSo when can i expect to see the baby?
>>45993531>C.Wish them luck and head homeHonestly I'd make a joke about how husbands are always servants to their wives, but that seems more like a bitchy Shikamaru comment rather than something Kon would say.
>>45993636Dude, she's twelve years old. Even if they do go through with this, that part isn't going to happen for many years.
>>45993531>A.Ask Neji something (Write-in)>B.Ask Hanabi something (Write-in)You going ahead with it? You two going to be ok?
>>45993666SatanIt's a joke. I want to see less seriousness in neji and his embarrassed face
>>45993531>A. Ask Neji something"So, should I bring some of my Uncle's rations or no?"
>>45993703I know. I just think it's in poor taste.
>>45993531>A.Ask Neji something (Write-in)Sit tight buddy, you'll be ok. You got lots to do after all this so the war is the easier part. For the love of all though please don't do anything stupid and get stabed>B.Ask Hanabi something (Write-in)A pleasure to meet you at last, offer to shake her hand lower the awkwardness a little, I hear great things about you too. I know Neji is a pretty formal guy so please bear with him, he does lighten up I swear.
>>45993531>>B.Ask Hanabi something (Write-in)Make a joke or something, lighten the mood, we are Neji's wingman after all. Mention how nice the Compound is and how we should visit more often.
>>45993535>>45993676Despite the awkwardness, both Neji and Hanabi are speaking as though they're sure."It's nice to finally meet you." you shake Hanabi's hand, hoping to lighten the mood a bit. "So you two are going through with it then?""Yes." Hanabi states matter-of-factly. "It's not as though I ever disliked Neji. It will take some time for us to adjust, but I think we can manage. Our union is the best possible path forward for the Hyuuga.""I still feel a bit as though I am making things more complicated than they need to be." Neji adds. "But Lady Hanabi insists that there is no way she would rather solve the Hyuuga's dilemma. I'm sure I'll come around eventually."The two of them are awkward, but they seem determined to make this work. You don't think there will be too many issues. You chat for a bit longer, then leave the Hyuuga compound.It's getting to be evening now, but if you're quick, you could make one last stop before you head home.>A.Go see someone (Specify)>B.Go home>C.Other

>>45994242Seems like more of a "morning of" sort of deal.
>>45994089>>45994197>>45994253You decide to make your last stop the hospital. It's been quite a while since you've actually had a chat with Tsunade Sensei.You arrive in the director's office to find Tsunade going through stacks and stacks of files. Lord Jiraiya is also here, doing what he can to help with his one arm."Kon, good to see you." Tsunade looks up as you enter. "I'm just getting these files ready for reference in the field. If anyone has a condition that may come into play while I'm healing them, I need to be able to look it up. I hear you're going to the strategy meeting tomorrow. You've really moved up in the world, eh?">A.Say something to Tsunade (Write-in)>B.Say something to Jiraiya (Write-in)>C.Wish her luck and go home>D.Other
>>45994058Has anybody ever brought up the fact that their cousins yet? Cause that shit will cause their children to get webbed feet and stuff.
Hey, I forget. Did we apologize to Tsunade for being an angry all those years ago?I just remembered someone talking about it a while ago.
>>45994406>A.Say something to Tsunade (Write-in)>B.Say something to Jiraiya (Write-in)"You can do big summons Jiraiya and Tsunade, any advice for summoning and working with Oozaru?
>>45994406>A.Say something to Tsunade (Write-in)If a student doesn't try to surpass their teachers it's like a slap on the face. How else would either know they've done the best they could?>>45994427that'll just be called a new kekkei genkai
>>45994427No it won't, it's only after several generations of incest that any physical deformities occur
>>45994406>>D.Say something to them Both (Write-in)Thank you for everything, thank you for the guidance and faith you've put in me. Ill try my best, stay safe. How about when this is all over we have a nice meal at the restaurant eh?>C.Wish her luck and go home
>>45994494>ANo but we should defiantly apologize now>BPlease don't loose another arm, but thank you for believing in me>C
>>45994406>B. So, I've got this giant monkey and I want to know how to use it effectively.
>>45994534But their cousins. Like that shit is gross man.
>>45994659Oh please. Who here HASN'T fucked their prepubescent cousin before?
>>45994659Half-siblings, genetically, given that their fathers were identical twins.
>>45994659>>45994813It would be kinda funny if they gave birth to twin boys.
>>45994499>>45994531>>45994579>>45994613>>45994645Tsunade is looking at you nostalgically. She must be considering the difference between now and when you met."Well, a student has to surpass their teacher." you say. "If they don't, then neither of them has done their best, right?""So you've surpassed me now, have you?" Tsunade laughs. "Well, you just might have. We'll have to see."You have another question, and pose it to both of the Sannin in the room."How do I deal with a giant summon creature?" you ask. "I figured the two of you would be able to give me the best advice.""Well, it depends on the creature in question." Tsunade answers. "Some are more willing to cooperate than others.""In general, I think there's a best way to go about it, though." Jiraiya adds. "Try to make sure that when they're summoned, their target is obvious. The less it seems like you're ordering them around, the better. If you actually want to give them orders, it might take some building of rapport. If you were going to summon a giant monkey, I'd only do so in the most dire of circumstances, against a clear enemy."You thank Tsunade and Jiraiya for all their guidance, and wish them luck. You also address Tsunade one more time."Tsunade Sensei, I want to apologize." you say. "For getting angry at you all those years ago. I let my anger get the best of me, and it just made things worse.""You're still worried about that?" Tsunade ruffles your hair. "I wasn't exactly acting on my best behavior either. I think we can both safely put that behind us. But thanks. You may not realize, but your earnestness did its part to help me come around. Now you just get out there and do your best. If you really have surpassed me, I want to see it."You thank her again, then head home. Your uncle has already closed down, and a meal is laid out just for the two of you."Welcome back, Kon." he greets you. "A bit late, but you were catching up with all sorts of people, right?">Continued
>>45995000You take your seat, and the two of you begin eating. It tastes a bit different than usual. Like a lot more care has been put into this particular meal. Every single taste that glides across your tongue feels very deliberate. Your uncle must have been working very hard on this meal."So Kon, how is it?" your uncle asks, setting his chopsticks down. He looks very tired, but from worry rather than fatigue. "I tried some new things, but I think it turned out alright.">A.It's delicious, Uncle>B.Talk about something (Write-in)>C.Tell him everything will be alright>D.Other

>>45995149>>45995159>>45995187>>45995196>>45995219>>45995312More than anything, you want to reassure your uncle. You can't stand seeing him worry like this."It's delicious, Uncle." you smile. "You don't have to worry about me, everything will be alright.""Thank you, Kon." your uncle says, before gripping the bridge of his nose. "I know I can believe in you, but... I thought the same thing about your mother, you know. I knew that no matter what, she'd be okay. Until one day, she didn't come back. Now, I trust you, Kon. Everyone tells me how strong you've gotten. How much everyone depends on you. How you've accomplished so much. And I'm so proud. But I can't help but worry. Worry that the day's going to come when you just don't come back. How could I even go on, then? It was hard enough the first time, but I pushed through for your sake. If I lost you, then for whose sake could I go on? My own? I don't think I could do it. Sorry for being such a downer, Kon. I know you still have to do your duty. Me piling my worries on your shoulders isn't helping."Your uncle is holding back tears at this point.>A.Give him a hug>B.Tell him that you will come back no matter what, you won't end up like mom>C.Tell him that you'll do whatever it takes to keep him and the village safe>D.Other

>>45995616>D.Other"It won't just be for your sake that you go on, Uncle.">A.Give him a hug
>>45995616>A.Give him a hug>D.Other"There are only two reasons I wouldn't come back to the village: an enemy so strong that he can end the world as we know it regardless of what any of us can do, in which case whether any of us die fighting or not becomes a moot point... or I end up married to Kurotsuchi."
>>45995616>A.Give him a hug>C.Tell him that you'll do whatever it takes to keep him and the village safe
We're going to have to fight zombie mom and dad aren't we.
>>45995616>A.Give him a hug>B.Tell him that you will come back no matter what, you won't end up like momI don't wanna disappoint uncle
>>45995989We'll definitely face zombie Mom. Zombie Dad might not show up due to alternate-reality Dad having already made an appearance. There's only so many times the villains can confront you with twisted shades of the same dead loved one before it loses its impact. But zombie Mom should show up. I'm pretty sure that fighting her is going to be this continuity's version of Gaara vs. Rasa. Child fighting parent whose powers are the perfect counter to theirs, winds up winning through a combination of cleverness and overpowering the Impure World Resurrection's control through their pride in how we've grown. Laze has even said (though he might have been joking) that we're going to get a power up from fighting our mom, just like Gaara got after fighting his dad.
>>45995989I hope so.I think that's also been predetermined, too.>>45996002>that picYou motherfucker.I love you.
>>45996002And now I'm retroactively changing Uncle's voice to be Mako. I hope you're proud of yourself.
>>45995655>>45995660>>45995735>>45995777>>45995864>>45995885You get up and embrace your uncle. He's always been so worried about you whenever you go off to do something dangerous. You can barely imagine what it's been like for him."I'll do whatever it takes to keep you and the village safe." you tell your uncle. "This is an enemy that threatens the whole world. If I don't do everything I can, that could just be the end. But I'll do everything I can to try and come back, too."Your uncle returns the hug, embracing you tightly."That's right. My nephew is helping to save the world." you can see the tears start to flow. "Go ahead and do your best, Kon. I know if you try hard enough, I'll see you back here in no time. And hey, if this doesn't kill you, nothing will, right?"Your uncle tries to laugh it off, as the two of you let go."I really should stop worrying." he sighs, wiping his eyes. "It doesn't help you one bit. I just gotta believe in you and be ready for when you get back. We're gonna throw the biggest celebration ever, you hear me?"Your uncle seems to have cheered up ever so slightly. The two of you finish your meal, then go to bed. It doesn't take long for you to doze off.The next morning, you're up bright and early. You get your things together and get ready to leave, saying farewell to your uncle.>A.Go straight to the gate>B.You have time to hit one place first (Specify)>C.Other

>>45996240>>45996250>>45996251>>45996282>>45996287>>45996303>>45996322You decide to waste no time heading off, and go straight to the gate. As you walk, you take one last look around the Village Hidden in the Leaves. There aren't many people about this early, but those that are, are going on about their usual business. Not worried for the fate of the world. You resolve to keep things that way.Once you arrive, you find the Hokage accompanied by Neji, Shikaku, and Inoichi."Welcome Kon." the Sixth greets you. "With you here, that should be everyone. We've got all the attendees for the strategy meeting. All our attending Jonin should be following us within the next few days, with the rest of our fighting force not far behind. They should all arrive within a week, and be ready to begin drilling the battle plans we help to devise.""Is there anything you still need to do here before we leave, Kon?" Inoichi asks.

"We'll move at top speed to reach the HQ as fast as possible. It'll take us a few days, but we'll have one to sleep it off before the meeting itself.""Then let us be off." the Hokage replies, as you all take off.As you go, the five of you pass through the lands that may be host to the battles. After leaving the Land of Fire, you pass through the Northern part of the Land of Hot Springs. You see some people already evacuating. You all eventually reach the Land of Frost, a small country on the isthmus between the Land of Lightning and the continent. The evacuation is in full force as you cross. You all eventually reach a large building near the border of the Land of Lightning."This is the Allied Shinobi Forces Headquarters." Inoichi says. "We may be the last ones here, or the Stone may be behind us. Either way, we have time to rest. We should take it while we can."Your group is led inside and showed to your rooms. After a night of sleep, you wake and inquire about the meeting to learn that the Stone attendants are still asleep. The meeting will not be for a few hours. You have some time.>A.Relax in your room>B.Talk to someone from your village (Specify)>C.Talk to someone from another village (Specify)>D.Other
Running some errands, back in a while
>>45997022>A.Relax in your roomWell, if Stone's still asleep.

>>45997022>>45997127Seconded. Infact we should be in sage mode as much as possible after the fiasco that the last meeting was.
>>45997117Yes and yes. Monkeys are playful, monkey sages should also be.

>>45997062>>45997086>>45997117>>45997127>>45997150>>45997230>>45997242You decide that after the mess that happened at the Kage Summit, it would be a good idea to get a scope of things out here just in case.You quickly get some provided rations and eat breakfast, then find a nice quiet place to meditate. In Sage Mode, you feel out all the nearby chakra sources. As far as you can tell, there's no intruders, though you obviously don't recognize everyone here. At the very least, there are none underground like before.After a couple of hours, you get bored. You decide to wake up Kurotsuchi early to perhaps relieve your boredom. As you attempt to quietly enter her room, you hear a gruff voice."What do you think you're doing?"You turn to see a stout man with a large nose and goatee. He doesn't look particularly enthused to see you.>A.Just here to see Kurotsuchi>B.Introduce yourself>C.Oops, wrong room>D.Other

>>45997606>B.Introduce yourself>A.Just here to see KurotsuchiAnd now we wind up in a pit. Her dad's pits are deep, wide, and durable enough that even the Ten-Tails can't dig its way out of one (at least, in its immature state). No one will ever find out body.
>>45997606>>A.Just here to see Kurotsuchi>>B.Introduce yourselfI'm pretty sure the anons saying we should sneak into her room were joking.>>45997660>>45997666Plz no
>>45997716>I'm pretty sure the anons saying we should sneak into her room were joking.Not really. Teasing a girl you like on the eve of war is something I can see Kon doing, at the very least to shake off nerves.
>>45997686And if asked whether we really needed to sneak into her room to confirm that, we can point out that the alternative was Sage Mode and that tends to make people we don't know uncomfortable.It'd look an awful lot like we were ready to kill.
>>45997606>>A.Just here to see Kurotsuchi>>B.Introduce yourselfShit eating grin, 100%
>>45997759>>>45997606I was not joking, why lie now? Kon is a strange fellow to say the least. Say we were gonna surprise her be honest
>>45997606Just smile and introduce ourselves, now if you will excuse me I have a target to prank...you like mad...are you made....she's not your daughter right?
>>45997606>Well, if I tried to bring her breakfast and she was already awake I'd just look silly, wouldn't I?>So, being a ninja, I decided to observe the situation prior to the teasing.
>>45997642>>45997649>>45997660>>45997666>>45997670>>45997686>>45997697>>45997716You can feel this man's glare eat into your soul. You decide that honesty is the best policy."Hi, I'm Kon Karagowa. Monkey Sage, and one of the Hokage's attendants." you introduce yourself, trying to play it as cool as possible. "I was just here to see Kurotsuchi, maybe play a little prank if she wasn't awake yet. All in good fun."As you finish your sentence, the man reaches his arm out and grips your shoulder."Nice to meet you, Kon. I'm Kitsuchi." the man introduces himself, his grasp on your shoulder getting tighter. "Kurotsuchi in there is my daughter, and she's told me about you. Now, call me crazy, but the last boy she was interested in blew up part of our village and became a terrorist, so I'm more than a bit concerned when I see another one creeping into her room while she's asleep. And even assuming you don't have any hostile intentions, there aren't a whole lot of things I'd be comfortable doing in there with my daughter while she sleeps."You can feel the sweat dripping from your forehead. Before either one of you can say any more, the door behind you opens. Kurotsuchi peeks out of the crack in the door."Dad? Kon?" she asks, half asleep. "What are you doing right here?">A.I was just here to see if you were awake>B.Just meeting with your father here>C.I was going to wake you up as a joke>D.Help me>E.Other
Real talk, no waifuing here, but does anyone think that Kurotsuchi is actually a good match for Kon? They've got complimentary personalities, that's not the issue. But I worry about whether the relationship could work in the long term. Kurotsuchi wants to be the next Tsuchikage, and going by canon she's quite capable of that. But being in a relationship with a Leaf ninja could hurt her chances, cause people to wonder about split loyalties. The same could happen for Kon as he rises in importance, dating a Stone girl could damage his prospects. So do we really think that the career issues can be overcome well enough for them to get together?

>>45998355I meant more in the sense that while they flirt, they're not in "sneaking into each other's beds early in the morning to fuck" territory. There's nothing physical about their relationship. Yet.

Your shoulder is starting to ache."Hey, Kurotsuchi. I was just coming by to see if you were awake, and maybe just pull a little prank to wake you up if you weren't." you begin. "Then I met your father here, quite a grip, this guy. He seems to be under the impression that I was going to do something bad, you think you could help me out and explain things?"Kurotsuchi looks back and forth between you and her father, then yawns."Kon's not going to do anything, dad. Trust me." she rubs her eyes. "Although I wanted to get a bit more sleep, which he'd have deprived me of anyway. Oh well. I'm up now. I'll be out in a couple of minutes."Kurotsuchi closes the door, leaving you with Kitsuchi. He lets go of your shoulder, and the two of you step a bit away from the door. Kitsuchi seems to be a bit calmer, but he's still glaring at you.>A.Ask him about himself>B.Ask him how things have been in the Stone>C.Say something else (Write-in)>D.Wait in silence>E.Other

>>45998997>>45998998>>45999031>>45999032>>45999035The silence is heavy. You don't want Kurotsuchi's father to keep a bad impression of you, so you try to strike up a conversation."Sorry about that, I hate to get off on the wrong foot. You want some coffee?" you offer. Surprisingly enough, Kitsuchi heads toward the kitchen, and waits while you prepare some coffee. He drinks some, then finally speaks."Not bad." he grumbles."So how have things been in the Stone then?" you ask. "And could you tell me a bit about yourself? I'm curious."'We've been training our forces full time." Kitsuchi says, still sipping at his coffee. "Our village's forces are the most adept at battlefield control. We have the entire alliance's lives in our hands, so we have to be prepared. As for me, I'm the greatest master of Earth Jutsu there is. You could say the world is at my fingertips."As Kitsuchi speaks, Kurotsuchi arrives. She takes some coffee and takes a seat."That was a bit irresponsible of you, Kon." she tells you. "You know it'd be ideal for everyone to be as rested as possible for the strategy meeting. Though I can't say the initiative is entirely unappreciated."As she speaks, Akatsuchi and the Tsuchikage also show up, just having woken up, it seems."All these trips the past year have been murder on my back." Onoki complains, before noticing you. "Ah, Kon. Good to see you here, my boy. I see you've met my son Kitsuchi."Kitsuchi grunts, as Akatsuchi and the Tsuchikage start fixing their own breakfasts.>A.Talk to someone here>B.Go find your group and get ready for the meeting>C.Go talk to someone else>D.Other
>>45999495>B.Go find your group and get ready for the meeting>Early Monkey gets the fruit
>>45999495>A. If by 'met' you mean nearly murdered. I was attempting to leave Kurotsuchi with a big helping of breakfast in bed, and no obvious sign of where it came from. Obviously, it didn't work out.
>>45999495>B.Go find your group and get ready for the meeting
>>45999495>Everyone has tsuchi in their name>Kontsuchi doesn't sound half bad>'Hey guys...can you call me...Kontsuchi as my family nickname?'
>>45999495>>B.Go find your group and get ready for the meeting
>>45999495>B.Go find your group and get ready for the meeting"I should probably prepare for the meeting. As much as I'd like to catch up Kurotsuchi has a point, it's not the reason we're here.""Maybe when there's more time."
>>45999495>B.Go find your group and get ready for the meetingCan we bring them breakfast?
>>45999756I don't think its your intent but that does sound kinda weird when you are around her parent and grandparent.How bout a simple 'Talk to you later Kurotsuchi.'
>>45999555>>45999619You decide that since everyone is up, now is the time to prepare for the meeting. "I need to get ready for the meeting then, Lord Tsuchikage. Excuse me." you say, bowing before turning to Kurotsuchi. "Talk to you later."You go to the rooms of your fellow Leaf shinobi and make sure they are also awake. Once all of you are gathered, you head into the war room.It's quite a large room, with all sorts of machines with seat for people to hook up to. In the center, there's a giant ball of water, cycling through displaying various areas. Beyond that is a table, with maps laid out across it, and a variety of tokens on the map. It seems this is where the strategy will happen.The five of you take places on one side of the table, while you look around. The Stone is still getting breakfast, but the other Kage are all here, as well as their attendants. Mifune is also here."Ah, the Leaf arrives." A says, noting your group. "Just a few minutes to wait on the Stone, then we can begin.>A.Wait quietly>B.Talk to someone in the meantime (Specify)>C.Check out the map while you wait>D.Other

>>46000032>>C.Check out the map while you wait
>>46000032>>C.Check out the map while you waitGather more sage chakra while we wait.
>>46000087>>46000108You take a look at the map on the table. It has some notes on it already, but it shows the isthmus that will play host to most of the battle. The Land of Frost makes up most of the isthmus, and is bordered by the Land of Hot Springs and the Land of Lightning. The southern portion of the Frost/Lightning border is the Lightning Desert, while the upper border is mostly heavily forested. The forest goes all the way down the isthmus to the Land of Hot Springs. There are also some marks on the Western coast above the isthmus, where there are large beaches.As you look, the attendants from the Stone arrive and take their places."Excellent. Everyone is here." A says. "Now we can begin. As you are all well aware, I will be acting as Supreme Leader of the Alliance Forces. That means I will stay here at headquarters unless I am needed in the most dire of circumstances. From the numbers we've gathered, we are likely looking at a force near equal to Madara's, with 100,00 troops. We won't be too outnumbered, which gives us exponentially better chances. We have decided that our army will be divided into five main divisions, with other specialized divisions. What we're here for is to decide our assignments and placement."The Raikage looks around the room."The first thing to do is to decide the assignments of the other Kage." he explains. "Since I cannot be on the field, one of you will have to act as regimental commander. In addition, the Daimyo demand to have a Kage as a guard. We have a safe house set up for them at our rear defensive line, near the Snow ninja. That is easily the safest place for them. So who's it gonna be?""I will guard the Daimyo." the Mizukage speaks up. "I can handle the defense of a small group without worry.""Very well." the Raikage says. "I will leave it to you."Just then, Itachi pulls a kunai from his cloak, and tosses it in the Mizukage's direction for her to catch.>Continued
>>46000545Yeah, we have The Yellow Flash's teleport jutsu. What of it?
>>46000545"Take this." the Sixth says. "It bears the seal for the Flying Thunder God technique. In the event you are needed at the battlefield, we can have you brought easily.""The Flying Thunder God?" A asks incredulously. "You have another shinobi that has mastered it?""That's right." Itachi replies. "And she will prove a great asset in this war, to be sure. As for me, my condition does not suit me to be the regimental commander. Unfortunately, my contribution in this war must be brief, so I will wait until the time at which I can make the most impact. For that reason, I will stay at headquarters to begin with.""I see." A grumbles. "Then I guess that means you're too old to be regimental commander, eh Onoki?""I intend to fight on the front lines all the same." the Tsuchikage replies. "But I may not be the most suited. Rasa could do it, couldn't he?"Everyone turns to look at the Kazekage."I could lead troops easily enough." he answers. "The question is whether they would follow. And I can say with almost certainty that they would not. No shinobi outside of the village has any reason to trust me. I would be no good in the position of regimental commander."Everyone in the room starts to speak among themselves. No one seems to have expected to reach an impasse so soon.>A.Offer your opinion (Write-in)>B.Ask the Kazekage to reconsider>C.Talk to someone in your group (Write-in)>D.Other
>>46000545>100,00That should be 100,000 obviously
>>46000763>A.Offer your opinion (Write-in)The way I see it the options are:1. Mifune2. the leader of either Waterfall or Snow.3. An S ranked Shinobi from one of the major countries. If Jiryia had his arm he'd be the obvious choice... Perhaps Kakashi Hayate?
>>46000763Ask the Kazekage to reconsider. If a well respected Ninja from another village was given status as second-in-command it should ease the tension enough.
>>46000763>>A.Offer your opinion (Write-in)Why not have Lord Jirayra be the commander? He surely has the experiance, and his injury won't impact his ability to give orders and lead.
>>46000896I agree with this. Jiraya was also a kage at one point if it helps.
>>46000763Definitely either Jiraiya or Kakashi. If it needs to be someone present, then why not ourselves? Or perhaps Neji.
>>46000890>2. the leader of either Waterfall or Snow.speaking of waterfall and snow, did they even get an invite to this conference?
>>46000890>>46000891>>46000896While everyone mumbles to themselves, you speak up and offer your opinion."Lord Jiraiya could be regimental commander." you suggest. "He has the experience, and his injury shouldn't impact his ability to give orders and lead. Perhaps with the Kazekage as his second-in-command, we could ease the tension.""Hmm..." A thinks for a bit. "No doubt one of the legendary Sannin could do it. And if he had Rasa at his side for assistance, then his injury would be a moot point. What do you think, Rasa?""I have the utmost respect for Jiraiya." the Kazekage says. "If my assistance is required for him to lead, then I have no qualms.""Then it's settled." the Raikage makes a note on a piece of paper. "With your Magnet Release, you can even give Jiraiya a bird's eye view of the battlefield. This will work perfectly. Next, we move onto divisions. The main five will be the First, or Mid Range Battle Division. The Second, or Short Range Battle Division. The Third, or Short and Mid Range Battle Division. The Fourth, or Long Range Battle Division. And the Special Battle Division. We will also have divisions for various other means, such as Sensors, Intelligence, and Medical. One of the most important side divisions will be the Ambush Division. What we want to decide here and now is the composition of the five main divisions and the Ambush Division, as well as the leaders of the other side divisions."The Hokage turns to you."Do any of the sound appealing to you, Kon?" he asks.>A.Yes (specify)>B.I want to wait and hear more>C.I don't want to belong to a division>D.Other
A. The Special Division
>>46001256>>A.Yes (specify)I'd say 3rd division. We can do both CQC and mid range combat effectively, but don't really have any artillery-esque jutsu as would befit the long range division.
>>46001256>>B.I want to wait and hear moreKinda want to hear everything before we decide.
>>46001256What does the 'Special' Division do exactly?>B.I want to wait and hear more
Maybe it's best for Kon to have some freedom in his plans. As in, it's probably best if he can move around to support and complement the other divisions wherever he's needed. I don't know for sure though.
>>46001256I wanna hear all the jobs before any decisions made.Placing the right pieces in their place before we see where Kon goes is important.Madara will hit that division hard as fuck.
>>46001256>B. Let's get the big picture.
>>46001440I think a squad that skirts around the battlefield would fit Kon well. Get a group of extremely versatile ninja to be a group on a type a standby except they're always on the move doing something till they're desperately needed.
>>46001256>>B.I want to wait and hear more
>>46001256>Yes (specify)Special Battle Division seems to suit what we can do
>>46001256>B.I want to wait and hear more"My newest Sage form means I'm leaning Special Battle, but I'd like to hear more before a decision is made."
>>46001426>>46001435>>46001498You feel like you don't have enough information to make a call yet. You intend to make a big difference wherever you're assigned, so you want to get the big picture first."I want to wait and hear more, Lord Hokage." you reply. "Having a bit of freedom might be best."You and the Hokage return your attention to the Raikage."First, we'll get the obvious out of the way." A starts. "Let's hear nominations for division commanders.""I have several." Itachi speaks up. "Inoichi and Shikaku here are perfectly suited for the Intelligence and Strategic Divisions. In addition, The Medical Division can be led by no one other than Tsunade. I would also like to nominate Kakashi Hatake as the leader of the Third Division, and Shikamaru Nara as the leader of the Fourth Division.""That's a tall order, Hokage." A replies. "But the first three are no-brainers. They will be implemented immediately. As for the leaders of the Third and Fourth Divisions, let's wait until we head from some of the other villages. As a note, I will be appointing my aide Darui as leader of the First Division, so that's right out.""Most of my high ranking ninja will be with me, guarding the Daimyo." the Mizukage says. "But Ao here is perfect to lead the Sensor Division.""It will be done." A notes. "Kazekage?""I nominate my son Kankuro for leader of the Ambush Division." Rasa responds. "And I nominate my daughter Temari for leader of the Fourth Division.""Since no one has claimed the Second Division, I nominate my son Kitsuchi to lead." Onoki adds. "I myself will fight with the Fourth Division.""The Fifth Division can be left to me." Mifune speaks up. "I will be able to direct it.""Then we're left with only one issue, it seems." A says. "We have two nominees for leader of the Fourth Division. Will either withdraw?"Both Itachi and Rasa shake their heads.>A.Shikamaru should lead>B.Temari should lead>C.Ask Shikaku his thoughts>D.Ask Temari>E.Other
>>46001839>D.Ask Temari"You know as well as I do: you've got the personality to lead, and Shikamaru's going to be constantly feeding you advice anyway."
>>46001839Why not mirror but reverse the overall command: let Temari lead, with Shikamaru as second in command/advise.
>>46001839>>D.Ask Temari"Would you prefer to lead Fourth? Honestly with Shikamaru as your second, you two will make an effective division.
>>46001902This guy has the right of it.
>>46001902>>46001916>>46001932>>46001944You have no doubt that the two of them working together would make an effective division. You get Temari's attention."Temari, would you prefer to lead Fourth?" you ask. "With Shikamaru as your second, he can be feeding you advice anyway. While you've got the personality to lead.""I like the sound of that." Temari chuckles. "And I'm sure he'd fall right in line under my command.""She's right, Lord Itachi." Shikaku notes. "We just can't go against our nature. Let's make Shikamaru second-in-command."With Itachi's agreement, all the division leaders are assigned. A goes on to explain the deployment strategy."First Division will be stationed on the Northwestern coast, taking out any enemies that approach by sea." he begins. "Second and Fourth Divisions will form our defensive line on the border. Note that we intend to funnel all the enemies we can to Fourth Division, as they are both the Long Range Division, and they are stationed in the Lightning Desert, so they have no worry of collateral damage. They are intended to be our meat grinder. As for Third Division, they will be further ahead on the isthmus, breaking up the enemy's front line and dividing them. They will likely have the most dangerous position. The Fifth Division will be spread out along the isthmus, breaking off portions to assist the other divisions when necessary. The Ambush Division will go forward and perform hit and run tactics on the enemy where they can, while the rest of the support divisions are back here at our rear defensive line. Let's start getting nominations for other prominent members of each division if you have them.""Well, Kon?" Itachi asks. "Have you given it some thought?">A.I want to be in a division (Specify)>B.I'm still not sure>C.I don't want to be in any of these>D.Other
>>46002199>>A.I want to be in a division (Specify)whichever the one kakashi is going to be in. I really want to be there for the zabuza haku fight.
>>46002199Third division. We can fight at full power for a long time. Just helping out every once in a while is a waste.
>AI'll start here, if worst comes to worst I can be redeployed anyways, plus If there is a brunt I want to be there.
>>46002257>>46002296>>46002309After thinking on it, you make a decision."I want to be in Third Division." you say. "I can keep fighting at full power for a while, so I'll be able to do the most good there.""Very well, I'll make you Kakashi's assistant commander then." the Sixth replies. "But remember that you may prove a valuable asset elsewhere. I might need you to move about the battlefield. However, expect the bulk of your fighting to be done under Kakashi's command."With that settled, the rest of the Kage start to assign positions. Soon enough, it is done. The army is organized and ready to be assembled. You all leave the war room anxious, but confident in your decisions.War is just over one week away.>End of Chapter 72Next thread should be TuesdayTwitter is @LazeQM
If we fight the Gold/silver brothers we could nick the fan.Kon is best suited for rapid deployment to danger zones, but if we have to start somewhere either 5th or 3rd division makes sense
Awesome, did any kage have us pitched to command? Or anyone hope we would? Where is Kurotsuchi been deployed?Did we made bad first impressions with her dad? Are the ex demonhosts joining us? Where sauske gonna be?
>>46002507You were anticipated as a possible commanderKurotsuchi was going to be deployed to Second with her father, but she insisted on joining Fourth along with her grandfather, so they eventually relented and let herKitsuchi is wary of you, but he was always going to start out that way to a degreeThey willHe will start with the First, but like you he is ready to move
>Thanks for running LazeSo we are fighting on the beachhead awesome, when you said Konkaro stepped up how much by?Does Itachi have any underhanded schemes up his sleeve? Since we are clearly an S class threat how often do you expect us to be bouncing around?Kakashi gonna be happy been incharge of us again?
Naaaaw did we pull the 5th outta retirement....Where would we gave been put if we let them pick?
>>46002636You're not on the beach, that's First DivisionBy a lot. Note that this Kankuro has been fully prepared to take up the title of Kazekage nextNot reallyQuite a bitOh yeah>>46002665They would have made Onoki do it despite his age
>>46002727So which jincheriki are with us? I assume B is at base, how fast is mum gonna show up.
>>46002789None are here except B, the rest are on their wayYou have a while
>>46002805Do the baddies have any non cannon nasties other than Naruto headed our way
>>46002901Ur mom lol
>>46002934How long have you wanted to be able to use that as a viable response to someone? Was it worth the wait?Anyone looking forward to teaming up with us?
>>46003076In all my cleverness, I just thought of itI'm not even totally sure who you may team up with, the situation will be highly volatile and may develop in unexpected waysWe're coming up on the real deal, anon. The big leagues
>>46003120So are we going to find ourselves redeployed a lot? Because while Kon being in the Third Division makes sense tactically, they don't get in that many interesting fights. The really cool ones happen to First and Fourth. The best Third gets are the Seven Swordsmen, which if we're being honest were kind of underwhelming. Or have various butterflies meant that this timeline is going to throw more at Third Division?
>>46003307You'll likely be redeployed once the Third Division gets its main adversaries dealt with
>>46003307Also there is one person that fights Third Division that will totally fuck you six ways from sunday so have fun with thatThey are pretty unassuming in canon though
>>46003322Cool. That does make sense, Third Division's stuff gets dealt with on the first day of a three day fight. There should be plenty of fun stuff for us to do. We'll almost certainly get done in time to fight more stuff.>>46003337You mean Pakura, with her Scorch Release? Yeah, that will be tough. Though given how many people we have we can probably hand her off to someone better suited while we take on her partner, who has Explosion Release and therefore will get fucked six ways to Sunday by us. Still, even if we do have to fight her, you're right that she's unassuming. Just doesn't have the wow factor of some of the other fights. But hey, we haven't gotten there yet, maybe the lack of interesting canon details just means you'll be able to invent lots of cool stuff for the quest.
>>46003405Kabuto rigged Pakura to hunt you down specifically
>>46003448fucking snake nerd
>>46003448Yeah, I should have expected that. Still won't mean much. We're not going to get caught by Zabuza's mist due to our sensor abilities and Wind jutsu letting us blow it away. So we're unlikely to be separated from other people better suited to fighting her.
