Shinobi Quest #8This quest takes place within the lands of the Five Great Shinobi Nations (aka Narutoverse) starting roughly around the beginning of the original series. The world of this quest remains similar to the original, with slight but notable differences in certain areas, based upon the passage of time from a single slightly altered event. (It’s a goddamn Naruto Quest, you bastards. Have fun, participate, and write in when you feel inclined. Most of the outcomes of this quest will be determined by you, the players. Critiques and questions are always welcome, as my knowledge of the weeby shit is not all encompassing.)http://pastebin.com/WiPdCqLHPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Shinobi%20QuestLast thread, Team 7 had a fateful confrontation with one of the former Seven Swordsman of the Mist, Raiga Kurosuki. After dispatching his minions, the Kurosuki Family, our intrepid team decided to backup their sensei, who was embroiled in a fight with Raiga. While at first the fight seemed to be going well, Raiga regularly displayed abilities the girls simply were not ready for, or could not predict. As a result, Ebisu took a devastating wound from Raiga’s Lightning Dragon Tornado; an attack intended for Hinata. After apologising to Tsuki, and imploring her to find her teammates and take care of them, Ebisu used a power self-destruction technique to make sure Raiga was defeated.Despite the overwhelming sadness, Tsuki took charge, and the remaining Team 7 Genin took the necessary actions to complete the mission. After a brief chat with the Hokage, Tsuki met up with Hinata, who finally released her emotions.We rejoin Tsuki a few days later, as a man has arrived at her abode…
You’ve been dreaming of storms, as of late. Flashing lightning, blistering wind. The roar of thunder…Driving, continuous rain.Raiga was dead. You knew that. You weren’t even scared, really. That’s not what the dreams meant to you. Hopefully, talking to Guy sensei will relieve you, somewhat. You assume the loud voice downstairs is him- it’s incredibly boisterous, carrying all the way from the foyer into your bedroom.It’s also 6 am. His knocking woke you- and the calling for “Ebisu’s fine young ward” to come and see him.This will certainly be interesting…You…1. Get dressed, and go meet him.2. Make him wait. It’s 6 in the morning!3. Have him meet you in your room instead.
>>47547800>Get dressed, and go meet him
>>47547800>1. Get dressed, and go meet him.Always greet a guest in your home.
>>47547800>1. Get dressed, and go meet him.
>>47547800>1. Get dressed, and go meet him. Somber and subdued, but classy and refined. We are may be in mourning, but that doesnt mean we have to be a slob.
>>47547800>2. Make him wait. It’s 6 in the morning!
>>475478001. Get dressed, and go meet him.Apoligise for my tardiness I've not been sleeping well of late you understand (bring the headband to give guy because they were on a genin team together, glasses our ours, keep it tucked away for the moment)
>>475478001. Get dressed, and go meet him'Sup wargle?
>>47547847Of course sleepyanon wants to stay in bed longer.
>>47547800>3. Have him meet you in your room instead.
>>47547800>1. Get dressed, and go meet him.We are a polite princess!
Meet the guest in the foyer. Even in the sad times.Writing.
ReminderNever done this b4, pls no bully
>>47548058thank you for this tribute anon
>>47548058the sins of our dice....
>>47548058What sins? Tsuki did nothing wrong.
>>47548142Not tsuki's sins. Your specific sins, anon. He knew what you did.
>>47547934So Tsuki started crying hard at the end of last thread once Hinata hugged her let loose the wetworks right?It seemed like it was appropriate timing to let it out.
>>47548142we all know what you did anon, we see you.
You decide to get this over with- you were the one who sent for him, after all. Getting up, you decide on something simple, but elegant. From what you knew of the man, Might Guy wasn’t someone who cared much for fashion, anyway.You also take Ebisu-sensei’s forehead protector with you, although you aren’t sure if you wish to give it to Guy or not.After dressing, you head down the central stair into the foyer. Standing there are two men- almost clones of one another. Bowl cuts of black hair, with similar green dress. The smaller one’s eyebrows are very striking. Lee, you recognize- an academy classmate. Looks like he got a haircut to match his teacher’s.They both turn to you as you descend-“Ah, young mistress Tsuki! I was told that you requested my presence immediately! A hero must always respond to the requests of a young lady in need!It is I, Might Guy! Konoha’s Sublime Green Beast of Prey! Keeper of the eternally burning fires of youthly passion!”He poses.“Next to me is my prodigal student, Rock Lee! Although we have only been together a short time, he has learned much!”“H-hello, Mistress Tsuki! It is nice to see you again!Lee is also posing.These two are a bit much for you right now… You…1. Respond in kind, with similar levels of enthusiasm 2. Get to the point, it’s too early for this silliness.3. Hand him Sensei’s forehead protector, quietly.
Rolled 3, 7, 3, 2, 10, 6, 3, 8, 2, 3 = 47 (10d10)>>47548058;_;Ignore the rolls. Just testing
So I asked Wargle on Twitter about this.When/If Tsuki chooses or is chosen to lead the new cell of ROOT, should it be called Blue Sun?Or will her bingo book name be like Konoha's Blue Sun?
>>47548058This is great, anon.I'm a horrible person.
>>47548181>3 Hand him Sensei’s forehead protector, quietly.Quiet dignity and composure.
>>47548181>3. Hand him Sensei’s forehead protector, quietly.Apologize for not being able to help save him.
>>47548181>2. Get to the point, it’s too early for this silliness.Completiment Lee on his nice posing though
>>47548200How about "Konoha's Full Moons"?
>>47548181I'm sorry Guy but as you know I was the student of Ebisu, look down. He asked me to tell you something, he said your father has been avenged, land him the headband notably holding back tears. Say we are sorry we could not save him and tell him what happened/how he went.
>>47548181Same intensity, different emotion. Burst into tears.
>>47548181>3. Hand him Sensei’s forehead protector, quietly.
>>47548200You are a genius anon. I support it.
>>47548181>2. Get to the point, it’s too early for this silliness.
>>47548181>2. Get to the point, it’s too early for this silliness."Were it any other situation I would outshine you both with my charm and natural beauty. I wish to talk to you about Ebisu."
>>47548181> Respond in king, with similar enthusiasm, and pose, and then try not to cry, but cry a lot
>>47548200>>47548236Why not Blue Moon?
>>47548261...They see us standing alone...
>>475481813. Hand him Sensei’s forehead protector, quietly.
>>47548181Seconding >>47548240We did hold them back a lot earlier for being professional, but this isn't professional
>3. Hand him Sensei’s forehead protector, quietly."I'm sorry. It was supposed to be a simple mission."
>>47548261Too flat, the name needs heft, impact, weight.
3. Quiet dignity.Writing.
>>47548313The Azure Moon Princess of Konoha! how many more words can we fit into this title?
So, Wargle, you always meant for us to get the swords, right? Bit of an OP thing to get as a fucking genin. If I were kage I wouldn't let a babby leaf ninja touch that shit.
>>47548336The Radiant Azure Moon Princess of Mighty Konoha!
>>47548336>>47548360We need to name our release the way Minato names his jutsu.
>>47548355we don't actually have them. We gave them to the 4th until we are old enough and strong enough to properly use them.
>>47548261>>47548313>>47548336Blue Sun fits our release more than Blue Moon.
>>47548355Its just a sword. With out training it is no different than any other chakra conducting weapon save for its history.
>>47548360>>47548373Boys, this needs to go all the way. Introduction monologue!
>>47548387Super Blazing Blue Sky Fire Stars Mark 9? (its just phoenix flower jutsu with our blue flames)
>>47548236>>47548261>>47548313>blue moon>too flat>two moons>heft>weight
Random thought: Kiba is going to be badass as hell with our unique release. We really need to tell Danzo we must learn how to sword gud.
Blue sun, is the name of a merc group in both firefly and mass effect. Our release is blue fire, and is probably going to be named sun release or plasma release. Blue sun is a solid name.

>>47548550We're trying to see how many words we can smash into a title. Mouthful is the POINT
>>47548580Repeated radiant, see me after class.
>>47548584>>47548550How about we do both, make a short and easy to say acronym that expands out into more acronyms that also expand, until the full title takes several minutes to say.
>>47548584Ah okay.I'm doing two other things while reading this thread, so I missed the context.My mistake.
The two of them are so happy… You hate to have to ruin their day like this…You hold back the tears- you’ve cried enough over the last few days.You pull out his forehead protector- still scorched and slightly warped from Ebisu-sensei’s final technique. Head downcast, you extend it outward with both hands.“I’m sorry. It was supposed to be a simple mission.” you start. Guy and Lee both stop smiling, and look down at what is in your hands.“He told me to tell you… that he avenged your father. Raiga Kurosaki of the Seven Swordsman of the Mist is dead.”You expect shock- or maybe anger, from Ebisu’s former teammate. Instead, you feel a reassuring hand on your shoulder.Although he is crying, you can see that he’s standing strong as well.“Ebisu’s flame of youth has gone out…. But lives on in you three. Remember that, Tsuki.” he says, his voice emptier of emotion than you could have imagined.“I always told him to put the past behind him- That my father had sacrificed his life so that our flames could flourish. I know he didn’t go seeking the danger… but it touches me that even after all this time, he felt it necessary to take what my father said that night to heart.”“Your sensei was a good man, and a greater friend, Tsuki. I feel that he may have not been appreciated by those within the Leaf as much as others- but he always did what was asked, no matter how little respect and admiration he recieved… and in that way, he was a better shinobi than many of us could ever hope to be.”“Please, keep that, Tsuki. Keep it close, and always remember that his fire lives on, within you and your teammates.” he finishes, the tears having stopped flowing freely from his face.Lee, on the other hand, is bawling. You respond…1. Positively. You will take his words to heart.2. Neutrally. You don’t really grasp what he’s going on about.3. Negatively. Sensei’s death will be avenged. Somehow.
>>47548640>1. Positively. You will take his words to heart.
>>47548640>>1. Positively. You will take his words to heart.
>>47548580> Behold! You stand before the Resplendant Azure Moon Princess of Glorius and Mighty Konoha! Wielder of the greatest release known to ladykind, indeed all kunoichi - the Dazzling Blue Moon Dragon's Incinerating Flame Super Dazzeling Release! Bast in my Radiant Majesty
>1. Positively. You will take his words to heart.Time to don the circular shades and inherit the Will of Fire!
>>47548640>positively.We are a Shinobi, and there is no revenge to be had anyway, beyond redeeming the weapons that forced Ebisu to sacrifice himself.
>>47548640>3. Negatively. Sensei’s death will be avenged. Somehow.
>>47548640>2. Neutrally. You don’t really grasp what he’s going on about
>>47548640>1. Positively. You will take his words to heart.Tear up a little.
>>47548640>1. Positively. You will take his words to heart.My sensei taught me the most important lesson, to follow your own path, protect who you can...no matter the cost. I'm sorry to bring your feelings down Guy and Lee, please if you'd like breakfast ill see something is prepared. Also mention the Park expansion. [ROOT mode engage]
>>47548640>1. Positively. You will take his words to heart.Awkwardly pat Lee's shoulder to try and cheer him up.
>>47548640>1. Positively. You will take his words to heart.He may be a goofy bastard, but he knows how to touch hearts.
was it decided who our new teacher would be? If not I think Gemma would be an interesting choice considering he was a team mate of ebisu and was never really that important of a character in naruto. He is apparently a really strong jounin and knows the flying thunder god
>>47548740We don't get to decide, that's Wargle's decision.
>>475486403. Negatively. Sensei’s death will be avenged. Somehow.
>>47548640Seconding>>47548721In that we ask them to stay for breakfast as our guests.
>>47548740I hope it's Anko.Team Mega-Milk best team.

>>47548893Could use a brilliant or brilliance. Especially since you get the dual meaning of bright and uh... bright.
>>47549038Either way works really.
>>47548781Given last thread we were talking about her being an extremely late bloomer it'd be more like "team several years of breast envy and lady-doth-protest-too-much 'flat is best.'"
He might be a bit strange, but Guy seemed to be a good man. You hold sensei’s forehead protector close- and meet Guy’s gaze. “Thank you. Though our time together was short, he taught me possibly the most important lesson a Shinobi can learn- that we live our lives to protect others. I will honor him always.” you say, the knot in your stomach only just now beginning to loosen.“The Fourth put forward to use the Mission funds and the Bounty from Raiga’s death to fund an expansion to the memorial park- Ebisu-sensei will have his own monument there. I thought you should know.” you continue. “Very well. I’m glad Ebisu will finally be recognized for his service- though I am saddened that this is what it took.” he responds, wiping away the remnants of his tears.“Would the two of you care to join me for breakfast? It’s the least I can do for interrupting your morning with such sad news.” you offer.Lee looks excited, and turns to his sensei.Guy laughs.“I must decline, respectfully of course, young mistress. Our training regimen is quite strict! No food before our morning excercises! If you ever feel the need for my assistance, Tsuki, please never hesitate. I will gladly do my part to pass on the knowledge Ebisu did not have the chance to.”Lee deflates.The two of them bid you farewell, and before long you hear them running full speed down the mountain. Certainly a unique pair, those two.You look down to Ebisu’s protector again- you will make him proud.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------You find yourself restless after meeting with Guy and Lee. Maybe their energy is infectious?You decide to…1. Find Danzo. You need to become stronger.2. Go to the Hokage’s offices. You have some questions about the future.3. Check up on Nori- you know she’s awake, but haven’t had the energy to visit yet.
>>47549250>1. Find Danzo. You need to become stronger.We can ask questions later and I'd rather let Nori heal up before we talk to her.
>>47549250>3. Check up on Nori- you know she’s awake, but haven’t had the energy to visit yet.
>>47549250>3. Check up on Nori- you know she’s awake, but haven’t had the energy to visit yet.Also, make a note to invite them over for food some other time.
>>47549250>1. Find Danzo. You need to become stronger.
>1. Find Danzo. You need to become stronger.Obsessive need to be stronger intensifies.
>>47549250>3. Check up on Nori- you know she’s awake, but haven’t had the energy to visit yet.Go see Danzo afterwards.
>>47549250>Check up on Nori- you know she’s awake, but haven’t had the energy to visit yet.She woke up to him being dead, probably kicking herself over "maybe I could've done something."
>>47549250>3. Check up on Nori- you know she’s awake, but haven’t had the energy to visit yet.team first, then we go full training montage with danzo
>>47549250>3. Check up on Nori- you know she’s awake, but haven’t had the energy to visit yet.It's not like we're friends or anything... Bala!Aww, poor Lee. Seems like either he wants a break from the training, or he's got the biggest crush on Tsuki. Probably the latter.
>>47549317Totally forgot about that. Changing my vote.We gotta be a good leader to every member of the team.
>>47549332Probably just figures we have awesome food. Which we do.
>>47549250> Nori, then DanzoWe must protect our friends by becoming stronger. It is the only way.
>>47549332>I mispelled baka. >Time to commit sudoku!Once I learn how to play it, that is. >>47549351True too! I'd just like to think it cute if he did.
>>475492501. Find Danzo. You need to become stronger
>>47549332He stayed back a year to graduate alongside us (probably in the hope to end up on the same team) its DEFINITELY the biggest crush.
>>47549414Agreed. Tsuki+Lee best couple
>>47549250>1. Find Danzo. You need to become stronger.It is time
Lee is worst husbando
>>47549432Someone else agrees!>>47549457I bet you want yuri, don't you?>>47549476False! There are far worse husbandos available!
>>47549432>>47549493Add a third person to that list!
Neji way better. Or literally any wealthy mans son who will be bullied by Tsuki.
Shika is best husbando, a boy of fine breeding and sharp mind, just what we like. haku can be our servant/bodyguard.
>>47549506>Neji. Kek. >Any wealthy man's son. Kek. >>47549510Alright, you've good taste at least. Though, Haku=Lee<Shika. Because if we husbando Shika, then best girl can't get with best guy.
>>47549553>that spoilerShe is nowhere near best girl.
Y'all niggas are forgeting the best possible choice.Haku
Lee and Tsuki do actually have a similar intensity that I could see leading into a good chemistry.
>>47549589But, the hair. And the eyebrows. If he changed his appearance and clothes maybe, MAYBE, I'd be willing. But not until then.
>>47549573Haku is for waifuing not for husbandoing
>>47549589Plus they're such an unlikely couple that I really like the idea of them getting together.
>>47549573>Sullying the bloodline with non-Leaf bloodFilth.
>>47549589I do like this.
>>47549493Don't lump me in with yurifags because I recognize that Rock is a useless commoner and ugly to boot.
a child with a blue bowl cut with drills
>>47549703Nah, it's a single vertical drill spike, pointing straight upWith drill eyebrows
>>47549703It's a bowl cut shaped hair style, but made up of drills.>>47549720EVEN BETTER
>>47549703I will shoot myself before I draw that. (Lee's pretty sick thou, not my cup of tea sadly)
>>47549720bright blue drill eyebrows. maybe a drill-shaped pompadour?
>>47549703Look tsuki maybe wouldn't be able to get Rock Lee to stop copying guy, but there's no way she'd let her kid get away with anything that dumb.
do we need to go after a guy in tsuki's age range?
>>47549660Our moms not from the leaf dingus
>>47549763Sarutobi's pretty hot tbqh familia
>>47549761>but there's no way she'd let her kid get away with anything that dumb.Or she does, but it's a different colored Guy outfit?Blue suit with a black sash-thingy?
>>47549740Seconding the drill pompadour.
You decide to go visit Nori.As you walk through the Village on the way to the Hokage’s residence, you marvel at how quiet is in the morning. In the years following war, the Fourth’s leadership has been quite good for the village, and it has been growing steadily- so your Father says, anyway. You suspect Danzo would frame it differently.You see the occasional shinobi running by, either on the road or across rooftops, on some mission or another. Konoha is a living, breathing thing, kept alive and protected by her citizenry. In this quiet moment, you feel pride in being a Shinobi of the Leaf.These thoughts occupy your mind long enough that you barely notice time pass as you finish the walk to the Hokage residence. While not as grand and opulent as your own manor, this building has housed the families of the Hokage since the village’s founding. In it’s own way, it’s just as impressive. A few moments after you knock, a mop of red hair answers the door.Eh…?The sea of red hair parts, eventually showing a face.“....Yes? It’s a little early for house calls…” it says whilst yawning.This could only be Kushina Uzumaki- wife of the Fourth, and Nori and Naruto’s mother.“Sorry, Mrs. Uzumaki. My name is Tsuki Norihime- Nori’s teammate. I just wanted to check up on her, to see how she’s feeling.At the mention of her daughter’s name, she seems to snap awake.“Ah! Tsuki! Yes, please come in! Hinata has already been by- although Nori doesn’t seem to be feeling any better about what happened. Minato told me the shortened version.”Her expression softens.
>>47549761Actually from the right angle maybe she could get Lee to change it up. "Do you think Guy wants you to be a second, smaller Guy? No! Don't just copy him. Make it your own!"
>>47549850Subtly guiding him into the perfect husbando, eh?Just as planned.
“I’m sorry this happened to you girls. Death is always a possibility in our line of work, but rarely does it happen so early. I’ll let Nori know you're here… wait just a moment.”As she goes to walk upstairs, she turns to you. “...and don’t mind any loud noises you hear coming from upstairs.”That’s certainly an odd thing to say… you wait near the door, pondering this. As you do, you hear Kushina voice, echoing throughout the house.“NORI! WAKE! UP! YOUR! FRIEND! TSUKI! IS! HERE! TO! SEE! YOU!”You’re rather taken aback… why is she shouting?These yells are accompanied by loud knocks on a door- loud enough that you can hear them from where you’re standing. Kushina certainly was an interesting lady….She comes back downstairs, face as sweet as can be.“She’ll be down shortly. Please, take a seat.” she says through a genuine smile.Right….You go to the living area, and sit down on a nearby couch. While you wait, you think about how you wish to approach this topic with Nori…1. Gingerly. You’re not sure how she’s been taking it.2. Bluntly. You don’t have time for her self-pity.3. Stoically. You need to put up a strong front as team leader.4. Positively. Sensei may have died, but he lives on within us. We need to look towards the future!
>>47549850>>47549876And it's also a genuinely good idea/point.
>>47549876Technically speaking, we could just subtly convince him into everything, he is very suggestible.And by that I mean we could just use Genjutsu.
>>47549510This Anon gets it. We must go with the superior genes to create the ultime children. With Shika's smartness and our beauty, they will be basically gods.
>>47549888>3. Stoically. You need to put up a strong front as team leader.with a side of comforting.
>>47549888>3. Stoically. You need to put up a strong front as team leader.We need to be a rock.
>>47549888>Gingerly. You’re not sure how she’s been taking it.
>1. Gingerly.to get a grasp of her mood adjust accordingly.
>>475498883. Stoically. You need to put up a strong front as team leader.
>>47549888>3. Stoically. You need to put up a strong front as team leader.But some positivity, too.
>>47549888>1. Gingerly. You’re not sure how she’s been taking it.Let's see how she is doing first before putting a spin on it.

Eventually after about 30 minutes, Nori arrives, looking like she just rose from the grave.Definitely not morning people, these Uzumakis….“Morning, princess.” Nori greets, flopping down on the couch next to you. “Come to cry to me like Hinata did? Not that you’re as sensitive as she is…”“No, although I did want to talk to you about it, all the same. How are you?” you say, trying and only somewhat failing to hide your amusement at how she looks.“Straight to business then? I like that about you, Princess. Though you’re prissy and a little stuck up, you treat me like an adult.” she says, leaning back into the couch. “I’ll be straight with you, princess. Ebisu was more than just a teacher to me- he was sort of my bodyguard as well. Father assigned him to me at a young age, and as result, he died. I could’ve- no, should’ve done more. I know we could’ve taken him if we had tried harder…”You think you understand Nori’s sentiments, and although she seems better on the surface, you can see Sensei’s death did just as much damage to her as you or Hinata.You….1. Agree with her. If your team had been stronger this wouldn’t have happened.2. Disagree. You should’ve followed sensei’s orders and let him fight Raiga on his own.3. Disagree. It was bad intel- nothing could’ve prevented this outcome.4. Place blame on someone (Who?)

>>475502172. Disagree. You should’ve followed sensei’s orders and let him fight Raiga on his own.
>>47550217> Place blame on the ENTIRE VILLAGE (ROOT option)Kidding.> Agree. We must be stronger.
>>47550217>4. Place blame on someone (Who?)Raiga, he's dead now, all we can do is know that he died alone and in pain.
>>47550217>1. Agree with her. If your team had been stronger this wouldn’t have happened.Focusing on making the team stronger as a whole.
>>47550217>3. Disagree. It was bad intel- nothing could’ve prevented this outcome.4. Place blame on someone (Who?)The guy that killed him. Also the guy who hired Raiga.
>>475502174. Place blame on someone (Who?)Kiri they should have kept their ninjas in check
>>47550217Maybe we could've... but probably one of us would've died, at least. Ebisu's last words were making sure you guys were okay, he wouldn't have wanted one of us to die to save his life. Beating ourselves up over what we could've done isn't just useless. Its disrespectful to his memory.
>>47550217>3. Disagree. It was bad intel- nothing could’ve prevented this outcome.
>>47550217>4. Place blame on someone (Who?)Theres no sense playing the blame game it is what it is, Raiga is dead, the one hired him on trial. It's over in that regard, we've all learnt from it and im sure you've heard the will of fire speech more times than you care to count.We were ill except and ill prepared for it, such a thing will not happen again. Im glad your doing ok, if you need to talk you know where to find me.
>>47550217That picture makes her look like she has jaundice. Do they not include flesh colored pencils anymore or something?
>>475502173. Disagree. It was bad intel- nothing could’ve prevented this outcome.
>>47550302It's Naruto universe Simpsons.
>>47550217>1. Agree with her. If your team had been stronger this wouldn’t have happened.If Tsuki was stronger she would have felt confident enough to go there together and maybe things would have gone different
>>475502173. Disagree sometimes these things happen its not our fault that the universe hates everything thats good in this world
>>47550217>1. Agree with her. If your team had been stronger this wouldn’t have happened.
>>475502172 . Disagree. You should’ve followed sensei’s orders and let him fight Raiga on his own.
>>47550378We would've needed to leave someone behind to guard the client regardless.I still think if the overall team was stronger we would've beat Raiga's butthole, but eh. Apparently it's not a common opinion.

After this we have gotta go to Danzo, say we need to get stronger, use sensei's hold headband as a belt instead of our, own. While with Danzo we will become the ultimate weapon. the princess is not needed down here.

You shake your head.“No, Nori. While yes, if we had been stronger, this may not have happened, the core issue was bad intel. We had no way of knowing that they would have a missing-nin, especially one of that caliber. If we had known, it would’ve been listed as a B-Rank mission, or maybe even higher.”“No mission will ever be certain princess, ever. If we had perfect intel, no shinobi would ever die on the field of battle.” she retorts. She does kind of have a point…“Well, to prevent that from happening, we’ll need to be stronger. All of us.” you determine. “I don’t want you taking on all of that weight by yourself. We’re friends, and can do it together.”“....Friends, huh?” Nori chuckles. “Fine, princess, you got yourself a deal. I’m gonna hold you to it though- you need to put some muscle on those little wings of yours.” “I didn’t mean- whatever” you sigh. “As long I know you’re on board. Hinata will need both of us to cheer her up, anyway.”“Right, that’s easier said than done.” she agrees. “We have a while though, I doubt my dad is going to be comfortable assigning us to any missions until he decides who our next sensei is.”Right, you had been wondering about that.You…1. Ask her opinion. Surely she knows who her dad might pick.2. Wave it off. Ebisu is your sensei. 3. Let the topic drop. Danzo is your true teacher as far as you’re concerned.

1 & 3.Writing.
Why is everyone going full Danzo all of a sudden? I'd like to keep our options open for the time being, we're barely genin at the moment.I like Danzo, he's based, but I don't know about going rogue, if we have to .
Danzo is your teacher seems... uncharacteristic given how affected by Ebisu's dying we've been playing tsuki as.
>>47550883Danzo has already brainwashed most of the Anons into ROOT.
>>47550883ROOT!But seriously good training. If he decides to betray the village or compromise our ideals or something we'll cross that road when we come to it.
>>47550883Because most of us are sick of playing the goody two shoes and want to play something different for once
>>47550883We just saw how our desire to help without the strength and CONVICTION to actually do anything got our sensei killed. This must never happen again. We must get strong. Us and our new friends will protect the leaf, with a will of fire. A will of fire, and an iron fist if need be.
>>47550883idk, but between Danzo and Ebisu, whoever it is is gonna have rather a lot to measure up to. That said, over time Tsuki's opinion on whether or not this is the best choice may change.
I'm not. Danzo is helping us in certain areas. He's more an extra-curricular teacher.
>>47550909Provided he doesn't pull a Winter Soldier on us.
>>47550883My reasons are a mix of >>47550909>But seriously good training. If he decides to betray the village or compromise our ideals or something we'll cross that road when we come to it.And>>47550918>Because most of us are sick of playing the goody two shoes and want to play something different for onceBeing an anti-villain is going to be interesting.
>>47550904Agreed, not sure what happened.
>>47550941Are you sure you're using the term you mean to use?
>>47550941>>47550918Can we not go Sasuke levels of edge, here? Because that seems to be where this is heading.I'm all for Danzo teaching us shit and doing sneaky shinobi stuff, but I'm not for that type of thing. Antiheroes are only good in small doses.
Remember kids. If Danzo says freight car or benign, we run.
Everything for the Leaf. I'm fine with going total black ops but I don't trust Danzo at all. What he wants is not what is good for the village. Trees need both light and darkness to grow. If he makes a powerplay. We end him.
>>47550883We really don't have any reason IC to not like him a ton. He has been good to us and as far as we know, IC, did nothing wrong. Given how much this diverges from cannon, I think it is perfectly reasonable to trust Danzo until he gives a reason not to even with metaknowldge.
>>47550982I can only wonder what kind of activation phrase he's got us connected to.
>>47550960>Are you sure you're using the term you mean to use?Yes.
>>47551003"Hohohoho" the inverted version of our own laugh, could result in shenanigans come xmas time.
>>47551003maybe some kind of poem about the moon and a dragon to go with our Dragon Release.
>>47551040Way shit goes it'll be just fineOh oh oh, how to rob men blind.
>>47550997In other timeline, danzo was at worst a ruthless but reasonable man. He did what he thought was best for the village. By demanding the death of the uchiha clan, he guaranteed the safety of thousands of innocent civilians. Good of the many and few. That whole thing. He did what he had to. That may be exactly what this village needs right now. Minato is too idealistic.
>>47551020Okay cause uh, I don't think most people actively want to be come a bad guy?
>>47551073Maybe in this timeline, though, instead of "the good of the village" its "the good of the family"
>>47551073Is there... any evidence whatsoever that Minato's leadership is causing any problems?
>>47551079Good, bad, were a fucking child soldier. Shades of grey.
“Well,” you start, “I had been wondering about that. I can’t imagine the list is very long. Many jonin already have teams, and I figure some might avoid taking us on…” Not that it really matters. Ebisu was your sensei, and you respect and honor him for his sacrifice- but Danzo is the one who taught you everything you know. You don’t see that changing.“If I was a betting woman; which, I am, by the way; I’d look at it this way.” she says, which only one eye open, reclining on the couch. “You and Hinata are the daughters of VIPs. I’m his daughter- and we all nearly died on what was supposed to be a D-Rank escort mission. My brother and Neji certainly didn’t have this problem- but then again, their sensei is Kakashi. While I respect Ebisu, he wasn’t ever on Kakashi’s level- few ninja are.”“But, there is one other. Kakashi is my father’s right hand- and he most certain does have a left.” she says, pausing for effect. “Itachi Uchiha. The man’s a prodigy, and one of the strongest shinobi in the village. If it was anyone other than him, I’d be very surprised.”Uchiha.You’d certainly seen the man a few times, but hadn’t ever gotten a read on him. You really didn’t know all that much about him either- only that he was the prodigal son of Fugaku Uchiha, and Sasuke’s older brother. Oh, and Danzo really didn’t seem to like him very much.This sounds…1. Good. He could probably teach you a lot, since he’s a prodigy and all.2. Ok. You really don’t care all that much, as long as he doesn’t get in your way.3. Bad. Danzo certainly didn’t seem to like him, and you trust his judgement.
>>47551073I'm hoping that if Tsuki gets enough influence with him she can temper the way he does things with some extra perspective.Honestly a lot of problems would be solved if people had someone they trusted giving a second opinion.
>>47551099Yeah I think you mean anti-hero.
>>47551079We're a student of Danzo. Probably gonna be evil.Also>>47551099>we're a fucking child soldier.
>>47551100>2. Ok. You really don’t care all that much, as long as he doesn’t get in your way.We will reserve judgement until we meet who ever ends up as our instructor.
>>47551100>3. Bad. Danzo certainly didn’t seem to like him, and you trust his judgement.But neutral. We shall form our own opinions as befitting the Norihime heir.
>>47551100>2. Ok. You really don’t care all that much, as long as he doesn’t get in your way.
>>47551100"Is a prodigy the best person to teach us? Sometimes they have a hard time getting through to people who don't pick up on everything right away."
>>47551100>1. Good. He could probably teach you a lot, since he’s a prodigy and all.Danzo may be smart, but he seems really against anything related to the Hokage, and we have seen no reason not to trust his judgement.
>>47551100>2. Ok. You really don’t care all that much, as long as he doesn’t get in your way.We'll see how it goes.Personally, though, I'm hype.
>>47551100>2. Ok. You really don’t care all that much, as long as he doesn’t get in your way.Just because Danzo doesn't like him doesn't mean he's a bad person. We don't like Nori after all.
>>47551100> Cool, a prodigy could teach us a lot>>47551134You know we're not, like, Danzo's disciple, right? We can think for ourselves.
>2. Ok. You really don’t care all that much, as long as he doesn’t get in your way.Pragmatism for the winattachments will only bring grief.
>>47551100Well this is concerning. Maybe not bad, but in character, definitely a cause for concern.
>>47551100>1. Good. He could probably teach you a lot, since he’s a prodigy and all.Learn what you can from these people, understand them, learn from them. Danzo is still our Shadow Sensei.
>>475511001. Good. He could probably teach you a lot, since he’s a prodigy and all.Itachi is crazy good, being his student can't be a bad thing. Danzo might not like him, but there's nothing we can do about that. OOC, remember that Itachi decided to work for Danzo, and even went against the Hokage on his orders to genocide his own clan. They may have different viewpoints, but their methods are very similar.
>>47551153I don't know what you mean here anon.
>>47551190>even went against the Hokage on his orders to genocide his own clanAfter danzo framed the matter as "either your clan gets genocides or your clan gets genocides except your brother."
>>475511003. Bad. Danzo certainly didn’t seem to like him, and you trust his judgement.
>>47551204I mean just because Danzo says anything we don't have to automatically default to his opinion. He isn't, like, our Dad, or anything.
>>47551153Don't you want to make him happy, anon?
>>47551223I know. Did you read the rest of the post? Ya know the part where I did say we would form our own opinion?
>>47551223Apparently he was there just about as much since tsuki's actual dad is one of those "always working" types and Danzo is our butler.
>>47551003bargain bin sale
>>47551231Please dont hit me again daddy T_T
>>47551100>3. Bad. Danzo certainly didn’t seem to like him, and you trust his judgement."The left hands of powerful people tend to do... unsavory things."
>>47551245Blue Light Special
No strong feelings one way or the other. (2.)Writing.
>>47551238Well, from what I understood you were backing up Danzo's opinion even if you wanted to remain mostly neutral. Apologies if it wasn't your intention.>>47551231I really want Danzo to be a nice goy in this timeline. He's a cool dude.
>>47551003Lunar Eclipse to turn it onSolar Eclipse to turn it off
>>47551284Ah no worries anon. At least ya were being civil and not flinging insults. Should make myself clearer next time though yeah?
>>47551317>>47551273>>47551245These are all really good.
>>47551284I agree. If he was actually the guy he said he was in canon, I would probably have no problem with him. But his insecurity towards the third hokage affected him to the point where he believed that his own personal ambitions were what was best for the leaf.
“Hmmm. Don’t the “left hands” of people generally do some unsavory things?” you respond.You don’t really care- Danzo headed ROOT, after all. He said was entirely dedicated to clandestine operations. “Yeah. The guy definitely isn’t a shining beacon in the night- He helps dad run ANBU, I’m pretty sure. But if he wants to keep us safe, Itachi makes the most sense.” she says.“Also, I’d expect to be chasing cats for a while, Uchiha Prodigy or no.” she sighs. “I love my dad, but he’s going to shelter us from anything dangerous until he’s sure of our abilities.”“NORI! YOUR FATHER IS ENTIRELY JUSTIFIED IN WANTING TO KEEP YOU SAFE! DON’T FILL YOUR FRIEND’S HEAD WITH SUCH NONSENSE!” Kushina screams from somewhere in the houseScary…. Definitely worse than Maru.“Go ahead and go, princess. A war is coming.” Nori grimacesYou leave the Uzumaki residence- with much yelling filling the air.You decide to go1. Visit Hinata2.

You opt to go visit Danzo. You need to become stronger, and right now Danzo is the only person who can help you achieve that.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------You stand again in front of Danzo’s small chamber in the basement of your manor. This time, though, you don’t even have to knock. “Come in, Tsuki-dono. I’ve been expecting you.”You do so, and see Danzo sitting on his bed.“I figured it may take a few days for you to wrestle with your guilt, then to come find me, so we may begin. Am I correct?” “Yes, Danzo.” you respond. “Ebisu-sensei died in part due to my weakness. I shall not allow that to happen again.”He chuckles. “You are too hard on yourself. Ebisu was a ninja of the Leaf, and his final decision was his, and his alone. I didn’t know the man well, but continuously berating yourself for his choice won’t make you stronger. Come.”Again, you find yourself riding the elevator down to the old ROOT facility, and once again, in the training area.“Now. From what you told me, the Shadow Clone Technique I taught you was very useful on your mission. This is good, and I am glad you have been practicing it.” he begins.“Now, obviously you still have much to learn. We will not start your training today, as I suspect the Fourth will eventually call upon you to issue you a new protector. However, as always, I am interested in knowing how you wish to progress. Training is nothing without desire, Tsuki-dono. Remember that.”“Now, tell me how you’d like to progress.”You…1. Would like to learn Taijutsu.2. Would like to learn Genjutsu.3. Would like to learn Attack Jutsu.4. Would like to learn more Defensive or Utility Jutsu.5. Would like to focus on honing your release.(This will affect how Danzo trains you. This will not be the only training you receive, so do not feel like you are locked into a single choice.)
>>47551752>1. Would like to learn Taijutsu.Gotta work on that huge weakness.
>>47551752>1. Would like to learn Taijutsu.We need to get better physically.
>>475517523. Would like to learn Attack Jutsu.Play to our strengths
>>47551752I'm down for genjutsu, attack, defense/utility, or our release.
>>47551752>1. Would like to learn Taijutsu.>5. Would like to focus on honing your release.we need to learn how to punch people until they light on fire
>>47551752>3. Would like to learn Attack Jutsu.we currently have no real method of causing damage besides arrows and fan smacks. we need to apply our high ninjustu ability to our offense.
>>47551752>3. Would like to learn Attack Jutsuand a bit of >5. Would like to focus on honing your release.Danzo is not the guy to teach us taijutsu.
>>47551752>1. Would like to learn Taijutsu.
>>47551752>5. Would like to focus on honing your release.
>>47551752>3. Would like to learn Attack Jutsu.
Taijutsu is really important, and I don't know if it matters in this quest but chakra capacity is directly connected to the balance of mental and physical energy. Right now we are WAY lopsided, and some more physical focus could greatly increase out ability to use ninjutsu. On the other hand, our element is really important, it doesn't matter how much chakra we can make if we have nothing to use it on. So either we lay the foundations for ninjutsu focus, or we learn ninjutsu and then work until we can use it more than once a day without passing out.
I think it would make more sense to seek a female instructor for taijutsu, danzo seems more like a ninjustsu resource.
As a friendly reminder, Danzo is the only one who knows about your release. As a result, he's the only one who can help you develop it.Unless you plan on telling others.
>>475517523. Would like to learn Attack Jutsu.5. Would like to focus on honing your release.
>>47551825ON second thought, Itachis is far more likely to ficus on basic physical training than advanced elemental manipulation of a unique element that only Danzo seems to know anythign about, so: >>47551752>5. Would like to focus on honing your release.
>>47551832Danzo is not a great resource for taijutsu. Our new sensei is a genius at it, as well as shuriken jutsu.
>>47551752>5. Would like to focus on honing your release.Itachi should teach us all the other stuff, we'll come back to those when we want the forbidden stuff.
>>47551784Changing to 5, since its a training option unique to danzo, plus we'll have a new sensei soon and we have a training session scheduled with the 4th (a while till that but still), we'll have plenty of other chances for the more standard ninja stuff or to shore up our weaknesses,
>>47551867>Our new senseiIs not chosen yet.Nori was just making a theory.He probably is our new teacher, but it hasn't really been confirmed.
>>47551867He's a genius at EVERYTHING! Everything except not being insane. Seriously, he's more fanatical than Danzo, and that's saying something!
>>47551846I think anons are focusing on one thing right now Wargle.
>>47551867was our new sensei actually confirmed? And yeah, figured danzo wasn't a melee type.
>5Get Danzo to help us hone our skins with this technique, such as a pheonix flower variation. this would also likly teach us how to use both lightning and fire too.
>>47551899Yeah, was just letting everyone know, you know, as a pointer ;PWriting.
We should combine this release with body flicker, leave blue fire back to the future marks where we were, we will become the fastest ever.
You feel it’s time to work on your release. It’s the one advantage that only you can bring to battle- might as well hone it.“I’d like to work on my release.” you respond.“Very, very good. I trust you’ve kept it a secret?” He inquires.“Yes, just as you asked.” you report.“Excellent. We will focus primarily upon that, then. I suspect your new sensei will cover some more basic training as well. I don’t mind if you come to me specifically for things only I can teach.” he says while smiling.“As a suggestion, remember that your release is made up of a combination of both Fire and Lightning chakra- as a result, techniques that utilize these chakra natures may be affected by your release, especially when it becomes more developed. You will also be able to alter existing techniques, or even create your own, in time. I will help with whatever I can.”“Now, you are free to go. I suspect you will not be engaging in missions, or at the very least, missions that challenge you, for some time. Therefore, we will begin within a few days.”Is there anything you’d like to ask Danzo about before leaving?>Write-in
>>47551975plasma whatever release clonethe enemy punches it, they punch supa hawt fiyah
>>47552053We got given legendary swords in exchange for a promise. Can he get someone to teach us swordplay?
>>47552053Why didn't the Mist village hunt down that missing nin?
>>47552053Would it be possible for you to locate a swordsmanship teacher for me?
>>47552053"Help me Danzo. I need to be stronger. I need to make sure I feel this way again. I need to be strong enough. Strong enough to protect this village. I will never again stand by as a comrade dies. Promise me. Promise that you won't let me."
>>47552053So Pheonix Flower+Our version and a lightning Clone+ our version our the way to go? We learn a techniue of basic nature first then aply ours to it.
>>47552120might i suggest you leave that to Itachi? since he knows about the swords. Right now Danzo is helping us master our unique ability and in secret, no one else knows so use this time wisely.
>>47552072>>47552086>>47552120I'm pretty sure whoever we get as a sensei could teach us that. Learning our element is actually important to use it too. Without the lightning they're just really awkward, really attention grabbing swords, nothing special.
Reminder that Itachi is not confirmed to be our sensei
>>47552134Its not his thing though, Itachi is all about a mix of Gen and Nin, you would want either Yuugao or Hayate who are almost pure Ken
>>47552053Help me Master this Blood Line Danzo-sama, a weapon must be tempered to be most effective.
I'm going to call it a "Ask about Raiga and his swords"questionWriting.
So presumably, itachi or whoever will check our chakra nature at some point. Wouldn't the complete lack of surprise be a little suspicious?
I forget to check tg when I get up and almost miss another entire thread.>>47548058Doing the good work Anon.>>47547983Yeah, but why is it raining inside my house?
>>47552183Our raw, untrained chakra is blue fire, but we could just send out lightning or fire if we learned how to use them. I'd recommend lightning, since it goes with the swords. We'd need to practice until we could produce lightning chakra on command, but kekkai genkei users ave excellent talent in the elements that make up their affinity, so it shouldn't be too hard.
>>47552263Wait, it's blue... how'd I miss that; Fox fire release, cause fox fire is generally blue
>>47552263we should combo it, open with lighting forcing our foes to go full wind defense, then whip out some brutal fire attack that only makes it worse .
>>47552263I mean that he'll presumably give us chakra paper.
>>47552350That's what I meant, the paper isn't magic, it detects chakra. If that's our noraml chakra then we get the blue fire, but if we intentionally channel lightning natured chakra into it we'll get a different result.
>>47552317They'd just associate it with the nine tailed fox.Come to think of it, the two tails is made of blue fire. So that's a thing.
>>47552400It crumples up then is set on fire.You can't fool the paper.
You decide to ask about Raiga- and his swords, the Kiba.“As I told you before, Ebisu-sensei was killed by Raiga, one of the Seven Swordsman of the Mist- or rather, he was one, once. Since we collected his weapons, I wanted to ask a bit about him and the Mist Village. Why didn’t they hunt him more aggressively? Also, I’d like to learn how to use swords, as the Kiba are lightning-infused blades. Seems like it could pair well with my release.” You ask.“Well, to answer your first question- the task of hunting missing-nin is one that all villages partake in- simply because finding a specific ninja in our wide world can be very difficult. As I am to understand, the Village Hidden in Mist is going through a rather tough period- as many of five of the swords belonging to the swordsman are missing. If the Fourth is smart about, it will remain that way. As for why they weren’t actively hunting Raiga? They probably were. That would explain why he was in the western half of the Land of Rivers, near the Land of Wind. To be as far from home as possible.“Finding you a Kenjutsu instructor shouldn’t be difficult- I know two shinobi who wouldn’t be adverse to it. However know that Kenjutsu is a Subdivision of Taijutsu, so training general Taijutsu skills will still be mandatory. Focus on shoring up your Taijutsu skill, and then I can arrange for Kenjutsu training.”
>>47552425I think we should go for some kind of Chinese dragon/celestial theme. ALso get the Team to go ROOT, Danzo's Angels
After discussing things for a while, you and Danzo head back up into the manor. You bid him farewell- it’s now midday.1. Go see Hinata2. Go see the Hokage3. Go somewhere else. (Where?)
>>47552498>3. Go somewhere else. (Where?)go visit the memorial stone
>>47552498>3. Go somewhere else. (Where?)River bank, train on our own a bit or see who's training there.
>>47552498>3. Go somewhere else. (Where?)The memorials.
>>47552498>1. Go see HinataAsk Hinata if she would like to do some training together by the river. Lets get to know her a little better and also improve our own Tijutsu
>>47552498>3. Go somewhere else. (Where?)The library.
>>47552439>>3. Go somewhere else. (Where?)>River bank, train on our own a bit or see who's training there.We talked about training, now its time to commit to it.
>>47552498>>47552511>>47552533This get Hinata stop by the Memorial stone and go training together down by the river.
>>47552498>Go see the Hokage.I don't know why, nor do I know what we'll do or say when we get there, but I feel like this is the right choice.
>>47552498>3. Go somewhere else. (Where?)Training grounds while shadow clone goes to Library
>>47552433That's not how it works at all, pure elemental chakra is pure elemental chakra. Kakashi's crumples even though he can use all 5 elements. The combination elements aren't actually even real elements, they're just combining two of the normal ones. For example, Yamato isn't channelling "wood" chakra, he's channelling earth and water, then mixing them together.
>>47552599We have both lightning and fire, so both affect the paper.
>>47552599Yes, but you have an affinity. Our affinity is perfectly even and intertwined between fire and lightning. Thus the paper.
Nabbing Hinata, and going to the memorial stone.Writing.
>>475525511 into 3Get huge.>>47552433Ehhhh, that's not canon.The paper works by reacting to the chakra that's channeled into it. So when fresh genin do it they put in their raw chakra and the reaction reveals their nature.Nothing in there that precludes actively channeling only one type of elemental chakra to fool the paper.Sure it wouldn't work against a sensor who can feel natures or the good old red eyes of hax, but it'd fool most sensei. After all, why would they be checking to see if their genin are up to something during chakra nature testing?They'd do it if they were properly paranoid.
>>47552626>>47552630If that's how it worked we'd never be able to use lightning or fire jutsu separately!
>>47552679...how? How do you come to that conclusion?Affinities are essentially having a small amount of elemental chakra in your system naturally. Having twin balanced affinities doesn't stop you from using jutsu any more than having one affinity.Something something Yamato can use both earth and water jutsu. He doesn't have to use wood.
>crazy idea:what if we, instead of learnunf single handed seals, we go the total oposite direction and devellop full body seals, effectively replacing each seal with a complete style of martial arts that allows performing jutsu while engaging in CQC. I know this is quite a long term goal , but i think it will be worth it, downside would be of course that if we get hurt, it will be much harder to perform.
>>47552720The if is saying "your logic demands x, x is wrong therefore your logic is wrong." In this case, "if we can't fool the chakra paper then we wouldn't be able to learn fire or lighting at all, we can, therefore we can fool the chakra paper." Now that doesn't necessarily mean that reasoning is CORRECT but they're not disputing what you THINK they are.
>>47552679No. Think of it like this. Chakra is a soda fountain. Sasuke's fountain leaks coke, but his sprite also works. Kakashi naturally has sprite, but he got coke, diet, mountain dew, and orange soda. Naruto just had orange soda leaking everywhere.We have coke and sprite constantly leaking in equal measure. If you were to taste it, they are constantly an even mix. We are able to separate them though. This is the dumbest analogy ever, but I think it works ok.
>>47552735We are not firebenders. Go home.I love you though.
>>47552743You are drunk. Also go home. And maybe bone up on sentence structure.>>47552744Yes thank you.
>>47552744So you agree with me then! Or you think that we can never learn normal elemental releases. If we can learn to produce one type of elemental chakra on demand, we can PRODUCE THAT TYPE OF ELEMENTAL CHAKRA ON DEMAND!GET IT?
>>47552743oh another downside would be that it would obviously take longer to form the seals as you whole body moves slower than your hands and fingers, though it would provide less of an opening for enemys to exploit if that is even represented in the mechanics
>>47552778I think that would imply that chakra paper would react to all your natures instead of just primary and/or bloodline
>>47552762Not drunk just phoneposting
You decide to go visit Hinata, since you’ve already seen Nori today.You walk down the familiar path to the Hyuuga compound, and as you do so, you are greeted by the dull roar of a crowd- seems something is going on.As you walk inside the compound, you see what you could only hear before. A great many Hyuuga have gathered, with Hiashi standing in the center with a boy not much older than you… Hinata’s cousin Neji, if you had to guess.“Neji and his team have passed the second round of the chunin exams, and set a new record in doing so! The fastest on record!” you hear Hiashi announce to the crowd. In response, the crowd seems to cheer the young man on. He simply waves, seemingly unfazed by the attention. After a few moments, you see Hinata in the crowd, and walk over to her.“Hinata! Have a minute?” you say, trying to catch her attention.“Tsuki-hime! Of course! Sorry, was just celebrating Neji’s achievement- his team beat the old record for finishing the second round of the tournament. Father is proud of him, and is happy about the glory he’s bringing the clan. I, on the other hand…”Hinata looks dejected. “Father hasn’t said anything, but I know he’s disappointed. I wouldn’t blame you if you held me responsible for sensei’s death, too, Tsuki-hime.”You, of course, would do nothing of the sort.You…1. Deny it emphatically.2. Brush away the concern.3. Question the source of this feeling4. Change the subject.
>>47552805Just picture the alien guy with sharingans saying "Kishi"
>>47552805The chakra paper REACTS TO ELEMENTAL CHAKRA!if we CHANNEL ELEMENTAL CHAKRA into it, it will REACT TO THE ELEMENTAL CHAKRA! How can you not understand this?
>>47552822>3. Question the source of this feeling>1. Deny it emphatically.time to be the teams mom.
>>47552735A punch or a kick is a more easily contested action. Hand seals can't be blocked, so they're simply better to get off a complex jutsu.Nintaijutsu is a different thing entirely.
>>47552822>1. Deny it emphatically.
>>47552822>1. Deny it emphatically.Basically tell her what we told Nori.
>>47552822>3. Question the source of this feeling"we all let him down, but id say for genin fresh out of the academy on our first mission, we did about as good as can be hoped for, we where just in way over our heads"
>>47552822>>3. Question the source of this feeling>>1. Deny it emphatically."It is my fault. I should have listened to sensei. We should have all stayed away from that fight. "
>>47552822> Question source> Deny, deny, deny!Therapist no jutsu is go
>>47552834It obviously doesn't JUST react to elemental chakra, because in general people have more than one nature and it only reacts to their primary one unless they've got a bloodline.
>>47552822>3. Question the source of this feeling.>>47552834From the wiki.>One's affinity can be determined using pieces of paper made from a special type of tree that is grown and fed with chakra: when the paper is exposed to even the slightest hint of chakra, it will react according to the chakra's latent nature.So I think this means you can't fool the paper without tipping off everyone watching that that's what you are doing.
>>47552822"I only sent a clone, I'd be way more to blame than you." Then when of course she says it wasn't our fault, "so it can't have been your fault either"
>>47552837good point, bummer
>>47552837So what I'm reading here is we should pioneer the creation of... TONGUE SEALS.
>>47552909>>47552923You channel chakra into it and it reacts to elemental chakra, it's extremely sensitive, so it can pick up the small amounts someone with an affinity produces normally. If you know how to produce elemental chakra, you could just channel THAT into it instead of your normal chakra. In addition, no one with a kekkai genkei has ever used a piece of chakra paper on screen or in the manga, so we have no idea what would happen. All we have is Kakashi, and then laetr Yamato saying "wood chakra" doesn't actually exist, all he does is produce earth chakra from his right hand and water chakra from his left hand when he does the handseals.
>>47552969...But I don't want to learn hentaijutsu.
>>47552969>>47552946>>47552837You could use a ninjutsu technique to enhance you taijutsu abilities though, if I'm not confused. Give yourself stone arms or light your hands on fire. I can't recall any particular examples but I know it's been done.
>>47553069That only helps if our taijutsu is competent enough to let us hit and not get hit in turn. We suck at the fighting part, as well as the damaging part.
>>475528221 into 3We are going to be this generation's Danzo, sans sociopathy. We're going to make sure that everyone can do their jobs and protect our home. Right now that means supporting our girl Hinata. Girl needs some hugs.
>>47553097>>47553069It'll let us make up for lower strength if we fire punch people, though we would need to actually practice proper form.It does mean we could possibly pick up some things from Hinata, as if we're relying on flaming arms to damage people, we're working with a similar 'precision over strength' style.
“Hinata, it wasn’t your fault. I talked to Nori about this, and we decided the we all need to become stronger- to honor sensei’s memory, and to make sure something like what happened will never happen again.” you say, emphatically.She smiles sadly. “You’re being nice, Tsuki-hime. You and Nori tried your best- my attack was completely ineffective, and sensei died taking an attack that was meant for me. I agree that I was stronger, though, it wouldn’t have happened. I can only hope I’m not a burden for all in the future.”You don’t think that Hinata would reach this conclusion on her own… is this the result of Hiashi’s scolding? Or….As the two of you talk, the crowd surrounding Neji and Hiashi disperses. Neji and Hiashi exchange words, after which Hiashi goes inside the compound. Neji then works his way over to the two of you. “Tsuki Norihime, I presume? Uncle Hiashi has told me much about you and your family. He didn’t mention how cute you are, though. I’m Neji Hyuuga.” Neji says with a casual smile.You blush, just a little. “I understand you’re responsible for keeping my cousin Hinata here safe- I thank you on behalf of the entire Hyuuga clan.” He says, this time bowing his head to you.“Neji…” Hinata mumbles, and he shoots her a look.“Please continue to keep an eye on her. We’d all be devastated if something happened to our heiress.” he says. While you don’t detect any malice- something about the way he said that bothers you.You…1. Let the subject drop. Not your place to take place in Hyuuga clan in-fighting. 2. Tell Neji that you will gladly continue to keep Hinata safe.3. Tell him Hinata is fully capable of protecting herself.
>>47553142>3. Tell him Hinata is fully capable of protecting herself.
>>47553142>3. Tell him Hinata is fully capable of protecting herself.at least, she will be once we anons are done with her.
>>47553142>1. Let the subject drop. Not your place to take place in Hyuuga clan in-fighting. Root works behind the scenes
>>47553142>1. Let the subject drop. Not your place to take place in Hyuuga clan in-fighting.Dont get involved in internal affairs.
>>47553142>2. Tell Neji that you will gladly continue to keep Hinata safe.Work in something about how it's important for team-mates to watch eachothers backs. We don't want to seem callous, but we don't want to imply she's helpless.
>>47553142>1We work unseen, don't confront or cause any more trouble for Hinata.
>>47553166Actually, changing to 1, no point making an issue of it yet, just gotta train hinata up to the point she can wreck shit and let her ability speak for itself.
>>475531423. Tell him Hinata is fully capable of protecting herself.OMG he called us cute!
>>475531421. Let the subject drop. Not your place to take place in Hyuuga clan in-fighting.
>>47553142>1. Let the subject drop. Not your place to take place in Hyuuga clan in-fighting.
>>47553202>>47553142this, we'll protect her as well as we trust her to have our back, it's why ninjas work in teams after all
>>47553142>1>2I'll keep her safe Neji-san, i'm looking forward to seeing how you do in the finals. So that smile head tilt thing. We're onto you boyo.
>>47553142>1. Let the subject drop. Not your place to take place in Hyuuga clan in-fighting.>2. Tell Neji that you will gladly continue to keep Hinata safe.
>>47553248yus, tease the Neji a little.
1 with a bit of sarcastic 2.Writing.
>>47553227I know right? I'm behind a computer screen and I'm blushing.
“Oh, I’ll gladly keep her safe, Neji-san. I look forward to seeing how you do in the finals!” you say with a saccharine smile. He’s definitely been reinforcing Hinata’s self-deprecation, then. Shame.“Yes, the finals. I’m not too worried, Naruto is by far the strongest opponent, and we’re on opposite ends of the brackets- should be a good fight. I hope you come to watch me fight, Tsuki-chan. I couldn’t possibly lose with you cheering for me.” he says again, with that damn smile.Well, he’s certainly forward. But if he thinks it will be that easy, he’s got another thing coming.“Well, I’m sure having my support would be a boon to any competitor- maybe I’ll talk to Nori about wearing one of her brother’s jackets to the fight? Ohohoho~” you laugh, with your eyes narrowed slightly.“If so inclined, my lady.” he says, although you can see him twitch slightly.“Though make sure it’s one that’s unused- Naruto wears those garish things until they fall to pieces.” he says, then departs with a wave. “I hope to see you soon, Tsuki-chan.”As Neji leaves, you turn to Hinata. “Don’t mind him, Hinata. Let’s go to the memorial.”She’s glaring daggers into Neji’s back as he leaves, but your suggestion breaks her out of it.“Sure, I’d like that.”The two of you head to the memorial park, and just take some time to relax a bit in the open air. You also take some time to say a prayer for the departed, as well as honor Ebisu-sensei.Is there anything you’d like to talk to Hinata about?>Write-In.
>>47553468Adress the elephant in the roomher sel confidence that is
>>47553468"Hinata I'm you're friend. If you ever need to talk to someone about your problems, I'm always available."
>>47553468Talk to her about our need for a new training regimen, and our new goal. To have Hinata slap the smug off that cuteface. so we can smooch it
>>47553468Ask why she thinks she's the weakest of the three of us? That is most likely us.
>>47553494Pretty much, it'll make her hesitate in combat if she doesn't think she's capable and hesitation in this line of work is a death sentence.
>>47553468Confidence talk with Hinata, mentioning how Sensei believed in her, he'll berate you because he's hurting in some way. Just gotta snap him out of it, or slap him out of it, either works. Im going for a Neji route, we can slap some sense into him can claim him as our own
Talking to Hinata about self-worth.This will also be the last post of the night, since I'm getting tired and we're slowing down.
>>47553468Complement how she did in the fight Did she like the bow? wanna be our team sniper with god damn xray eyes!
>>47553581Not bad but I'm sure there is a better match from the main House of Hyuuga.
As you both lay in the grass, you decide to talk to Hinata about herself.“Hinata. Why do you think so little of yourself?” you say rather bluntly.“E-eh?!” she says, sitting up in a panic. “I-I don’t I know what you mean, Tsuki-hime!”“Nori was your only friend, and even now you let people like Neji walk all over you, even though in status he is lesser than you.” you say, very matter of factly. “You have no confidence.”She pouts. “You’re being mean, Tsuki-hime.” “I’m being honest, Hinata. I want you to believe in yourself. You’re capable of great things, and I want you to truly believe that!” you say, turning to her. “I’ve always been rather timid and quiet, you know.” she starts to explain. “When Neji’s father died, he began to talk down to me- never directly, or with malice, but you can see it. He hates me. I’m not sure why, and I can’t work up the courage to ask. It’s only gotten worse as we’ve gotten older, too.”“Well, I’m setting a goal for you right now, then Hinata.” you say standing up.“W-what’s that?” she inquires.“You’re going to beat Neji Hyuuga.” you say, flashing her a winning smile.
>>47553672>“You’re going to beat Neji Hyuuga.” you say, flashing her a winning smile.Goddamn right
and that's a thread, boys. Didn't quite get as far as I'd like today, but it will make getting to the timeskip easier next thread. Character and Worldbuilding is important, to.@WargleQM for letters of love and admirationI'll be hanging around as usual while I archive
>>47553672Tsuki does not think small.
>>47553702Great thread Wargle, when's the next one? Weekend?
>>47553702When is next thread gonna be?Whats out Chakra control like? So Does Neji like us or just thinks we're hot
>>47553702Thanks for the run Wargle.
>>47553702When can we expect the next thread?Thanks for running, too!
>>47553729I'm willing to bet that it's somehow a Hiashi Keikaku.
>>47553729>>47553719Was planning for weekend, but might sneak another one in to get to the timeskip.>>47553729Pretty decent, for a Genin. I can hammer it out as a distinct stat, if you guys want. Neji's putting the swagger on because he's heard good things, you're cute, and because you come from money. He doesn't really know you enough to say he "likes" or not.
>>47553761Maybe him and Danzo have had that "talk"
>>47553770>I can hammer it out as a distinct stat, if you guys want.I'd like that, but if you said no then I wouldn't mind either.And what does Lee think of us?
>>47553790It messes with the way the statbooks calculate the totals, but I'll figure something out.Lee is a whirlwind of emotions
>>47553702Wargle obviously we all went ot the accadamy together, are there any people we got along with etc? any we didn't. What does Shikamaru think of us? any of the other teams hear about your uhh...encounter?
>>47553806I covered it in the first thread pretty well, I thought.Your friends were Sakura, Ino and TentenYou had a friendly rivalry with ShikamaruYou didn't get along with NoriMost other people weren't on your radar.
>>47553806Also worth noting that Naruto and Neji weren't in your class, as they graduated early.
>>47553839>>47553845If chakra control was made into a X/5.0 stat, at what level would ours be?
>>47553886well good for a genin so I dunno...2.5 or 3?
