Shinobi Quest #10This 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, Tsuki Norihime did some planning with Hinata, picked up some practice swords, learned about puppetry and her newly named Stellar Release, and asked about her mom.Oh, and the Hokage came to visit.
“Obviously the quality of Konoha’s leadership leaves much to be desired.”The last thought to go through your mind as Itachi Uchiha, the man indicated to be your new sensei, left your house. Had you hurt his feelings? You hoped he wasn’t that fragile- though he didn’t seem angry, just sort of disappointed.Minato, the Fourth Hokage, seems frozen to the spot. He cannot believe Itachi just left.Eventually, Kakashi Hatake, the Hokage’s right hand, speaks.“Well, now you’ve done it, Tsuki. Cut right to the heart of the matter.”You turn to the white haired-man, who has put his little book from earlier away.“The Hokage wants to keep you safe- all three of you. For a new teacher, you could certainly do worse than the prodigy of the Uchiha household. Looking back, I’m grateful that my students didn’t reject me so off-handedly.” he says, walking toward the Hokage.“The Hokage didn’t make the choice lightly. All ninja spend a few missions chasing cats, Tsuki. Just because you think you are above it, doesn’t mean you are. And besides- I hated cats. Still do.Anyway, excuse us.” he says. He wraps his hands around the Hokage’s waist- then *poof!*- both them of have vanished!”Is that some sort of jutsu? Interesting. You feel…1. Somewhat vindicated. You’re still not happy about this.2. Remorseful. Maybe you shouldn’t have been so unpleasant.3. Nothing. You’re glad this interruption has ended.
>>47615696>2. Remorseful. Maybe you shouldn’t have been so unpleasant.
>>476156962. Remorseful. Maybe you shouldn’t have been so unpleasant.Tfw anons are bullying best Uchiha just because they want to hang out with DanzoI like Danzo, but Itachi's pretty cool too.
>>47615696I'd rather cut to the heart of a matter than dance around it. Apologies if that gave offense Itachi-Sensei.
>>47615696>3. Nothing. You’re glad this interruption has ended.We weren't really that disrespectful, we just let it be known that he wasn't Ebisu and didnt care one way or the other if he was our sensei.
>>47615724I chose it 'cause the character wouldn't really like it.I do like both Danzo and Itachi, too.
>>47615696>4. Mildly apprehensive. While you don't actually regret saying that, you're sure it'll bite you in the ass later.
>>47615696>2. Remorseful. Maybe you shouldn’t have been so unpleasant.We should go apologize.
>>47615696>>47615735None of the original options really feel right, so yeah this.
>>47615696>2. Remorseful. Maybe you shouldn’t have been so unpleasant.Lets say sorry to him later and begin anew, i'll give Itachi a chance, may be a good learning experience for him and us
>>47615666Nice Satan trips Wargle, but you forgot again.
>>47615696>>47615735Actually, yeah, this.
>>47615696>1. Somewhat vindicated. You’re still not happy about this.>2. Remorseful. Maybe you shouldn’t have been so unpleasant.On the one hand Itachi definitely wasn't the intended target of criticism. On the other hand both Kakashi and Minato didn't seem to understand the ACTUAL concern or give Tsuki a chance to explain. They seem to assume she's just being a stuck-up bitch rather than considering the possibility that she's legitimately concerned that Minato's going to end up stifling her team's growth out of fear.
>>47615696>4. Confused. Why didn't Itachi defend himself?>1. Vindicated. If he can't defend himself, then obviously we were right about him.>2. Remorseful. We didn't want to hurt his feelings, though...Tsuki is still a teenager, if that. It's okay for her to make mistakes.Just remember that people die every time you do. No pressure.
>>47615696>For a new teacher, you could certainly do worse than the prodigy of the Uchiha household.We need more evidence of that than simply being told so! A kickass ninja does not inherently a good teacher make. We're entirely within our rights to worry that concern over keeping us safe has sacrificed us actually getting taught.
>>47615756Oops. Swore I threw it up in the title.Some shitposting this way comes, I suppose.
Also, remorseful, but with some variety and conflicting emotions tossed in.Writing.
>>47615696Seconding>>47615781We should go explain this to Itachi.
>>47615781Hmm... you've got a point. Maybe we should chase down the Hokage and try to explain things.
>>47615841Nah.Explain it to Itachi, though.
My suggestion for us during our Uhiha guided teaching is firstly make up like a mature person and a refined lady, apologize for our tardiness and say how we look forward to learning under him, give a polite bow and get down to business.For all the thing Itachi is and isn't, he is a hard worker and a caring (but a little twisted) person. I say we make up and hit the montage
>>47615822Do something along the lines of what this guy says>>47615781>>47615841>>47615851Yeah we should apologize and explain what we meant to Itachi. Its not his fault we don't want to be useless.
>>47615870Make up, but explain that we don't want to be treated like fragile dolls despite the Hokage's understandable fear of his daughter and two VIPs being hurt.
So wait, now when something super serious comes up is Minato not gonna have any right hand men to send out. Or would we go with itachi thus ruining the whole point.
>>47615899>Checkedand I concur
>>47615930He's got more than two trusted subordinates.
>>47615887Just going to point out, Itachi was the only one of the three who treated Tsuki's concerns with any degree of seriousness.
>>47615961Those guys are for something merely serious. I said SUPER serious.
>>47615930>>47615930We took his left hand, not his right hand
>>47615930I imagine that if something super serious comes up he'd send a different jonin. Kakashi is not really that super amazing compared to the other jonin. Its just that he has the Sharingan. One of the reasons Kakashi is in his position is probably because Minato can trust him, being his pupil after all.>>47615971We should still apologize, its not like we are some uncouth mud farmer.
>>47615988A bunch of subordinates at once, then.Or we get Genma or Anko as temp. teachers.
You’re conflicted. While you meant what you said- Itachi himself wasn’t the intended target of the your criticism. He personally hadn’t done anything to stifle you, and in fact didn’t even defend himself.Why? Why would he just walk out like that? Maybe the reaction he had gotten from Nori and Hinata hadn’t been spectacular, either….“Tsuki.” You hear your father’s voice from your left- he’s been here the whole time, silently observing. You had entirely forgotten.“Yes, father?” you respond dutifully.“Did you tell the Lord Fourth about your concerns before just now?” he questions.Oh.“That may have ah.. Slipped my mind, Father.” you respond, eyes downcast.He laughs. “Just like your mother. Do me a favor and at least make nice with Itachi. His ANBU corps are big customers of mine- and while I doubt he’s gonna find a better deal, it’s my policy to be on friendly terms with our clients. Last thing I need is him to be bullied by my over-eager daughter.”You…1. Decide to go find Itachi. It wasn’t his fault.2. Will make nice later. You don’t feel like tracking him down.3. Start with the Hokage, instead.
>>47616047>1. Decide to go find Itachi. It wasn’t his fault.
>>47616047>1. Decide to go find Itachi. It wasn’t his fault.Get it done now, strike while the iron is hot and all that.
>>47616047> Itchie-sensei> Then Minnow-kage
>>47616047>3. Start with the Hokage, instead.Easier to find then Itachi. He's a weasel.
>>47616047>1. Decide to go find Itachi. It wasn’t his fault.The Hokage's kind of a moron.
>>47616047>1. Decide to go find Itachi. It wasn’t his fault.I dont really like Minato in this setting.
>>47616047Actually you know what we should do? If Itachi has any skill at teaching Sasuke would probably know from getting shown something. It'd be nice to clarify whether our concerns actually have merit.
>>47616074He was way cooler when he was dead.
>>476160471. Decide to go find Itachi. It wasn’t his fault.Find him and apologize, say we are sorry we were flippant and rude, we know he is going to try his best and is also following orders. Say we genuinely do look forward to learning from him and are sure we'll be attentive students. Give a respectful bow.
Why are you guys here and not in the quest board?
>>47616118Because we ca
>>47616092>flippant and rudeTry to suck his dick less, anon. Tsuki's concerns were fully justified, and they'd be just as valid if Kakashi had been assigned to her team instead. It's a matter of whether Minato assigned Itachi to the team to help their growth or hinder it.
1. Wins. Time to go apologize to the sad sharingan.Writing
>>47616137They were valid, but voiced in the least tactful way outside a silent middle finger.
Question!Do we show Itachi the Stellar release?Pros:He's our Jonin Sensei, he'll probably find out eventually.He can help train us in it.He has the Sharingan, and can probably use it to get a better idea of just what the hell is up with it beyond just being Really Really hot.Cons:Danzo might not like it.It'll probably be noted someplace official, and thus the Hokage will know about it, as will some possible foreign ninja villages.
>>47616158Let's ask Danzo first, before we do anything about it.
>>47616158For the moment lets still keep it a secret.
>>47616158Danzo asked us not too, so not unless we get the ok or we have too.
>>47616158>Do we show Itachi the Stellar release?To be determined. On the surface he appears to put a lot more thought into how he interacts with his future team than anyone else involved, but we have no way of knowing how that initial appearance will translate into reality.
>>47616158I suggest we keep it a secret until Danzo says so
>>47616158>what the hell is up with it beyond just being Really Really hot.Um, excuse me, its Really Really hot and evidently has Mass, get it right.
>>47616158Well the Sharingan can't copy a Kekkai Genkai. So Itachi's guess is as good as ours or Danzo's.
>>47616072>>47616074Minato is Minato. He's the source of Naurto's doofy optimism and never say die attitude, and got automatic cool points for being dead and knowing neat techniques.But he's also a huge dork- and being strong doesn't mean you're a great parent. Especially when you're leading a nation and have a lot more things to worry about than your daughter and her friends not liking their teacher.
>>47616222No, it can't copy it, but it can read how chakra interacts with the world with far more accuracy and theoretical understanding than the Byakugan.
>>47616224It might be noted at this point that I grew tired of Naruto himself after the Zabuza arc.
>>47616255Literally the first arc in the series
>>47616047Our princess has bullied ItachiThis is the best quest
>>47616224I thought Kushina was the source of all that, or at least the optimism
“Yes, father.” you say. You head outside- surely he can’t have gotten too far.You quickly scour the manor grounds, but don’t see him. It’s midday- you doubt he’s hiding anywhere. Unless he can teleport like Kakashi seemed to be able to…Eventually you see him- standing by the railing overlooking the Hokage mountain. While you initially don’t want to interrupt his peaceful moment- you probably should.“Uhm… Itachi-sensei?” you start- it comes out a bit awkward and quiet. You aren’t used to addressing him this way.He slowly turns towards you. “Ah, Tsuki. I hope I didn’t cause a scene- I doubt Minato took that very well… Your teammates had very similar reactions. I think he was hoping that you would be a bit more accepting. Is there something I can do for you?”“I… wanted to apologize. For all of us. We’ve been worried about how the Fourth was going to handle Ebisu-sensei’s replacement, and figured he was going to assign us a bodyguard instead of a teacher. We want to grow, not be strangled to death. We know that we can become strong, and serve Konoha as well as any other shinobi!” you gush.Itachi smiles, and walks towards you… and pokes you right in the middle of your forehead.“...eh? Ow! Why would you…?” you react.“Come, sit with me, Tsuki. I would hear hear about you and your teammates, your wants and desires. If you want to become strong, I would be more than happy to help you achieve new heights. All of you three have great potential- it would be remiss of me to stagnate that on the account of Minato’s desires. He’s a good man, Tsuki- he just worries. Ebisu’s death greatly troubled him, and it was then he came to me, asking for me to take his daughter and her friends under my wing.You…1. Take him up on his offer, and spend some time with Itachi.2. Politely decline, but say you will meet with him soon.3. Decline. You’ve said your piece.
>>47616224It's the Goku DilemmaGreat fighter, fucking amaaaazing fighter, total moron outside that.
>>47616501He picked up his verbal tic and his contrarian habits from Kushina. Kushina definitely had a temper that Naruto didn't pick up, though.
>>47616518>1. Take him up on his offer, and spend some time with Itachi.Don't say anything about our release, though.Also!>Itachi smiles, and walks towards you… and pokes you right in the middle of your forehead.Pic fucking related.
>>47616518>1. Take him up on his offer, and spend some time with Itachi.Very well.
>>47616518>1. Take him up on his offer, and spend some time with Itachi.
>>47616518>1. Take him up on his offer, and spend some time with Itachi.I doubt our teammates would be much inclined to talking, and I doubt anything we said would change Minato's position.But this is good. I'm thoroughly convinced that Itachi gets it.
>>47616518>1. Take him up on his offer, and spend some time with Itachi.We got poked.
>>47616518>1. Take him up on his offer, and spend some time with Itachi.I WANT TO CUDDLE HIM
>>47616583>We got poked.I know right?!>>47616587At a later point, yeah.
CRUSH ON ITCHIE-SENSEI WHEN
>>47616602Probably when he does something no one else can and saves the day. At least in Tsuki's eyes yeah?
>>47616607This ship has no breaks. FULL STEAM AHEAD
>>47616602Why not now?Though I still like the idea of a morally flexible Ojou and the goofy Rock Lee.
>>47616602Right the hell now
>>47616602Itachi's one smooth motherfucker. but I don't think Tsuki would be in full crush mode from a simple headpoke right?....
>>47616649Probably after a few more one on one conversations and a couple more pokes.
So we gonna give the speach about how we wanna help Hinata become the Sun of Konaha? The radiant light of the day, we'll watch the night.If he asks why we do the night say our name dont really give much of a choice
>>47616677Nori, not Hinata.
>>47616677I was about to ask what the fuck you are on about. But then I remembered what Hinata's name means.
Spending time with Itachi.Writing~
>>47616527He seems to be a good leader. It's mostly parenting that he's failing in.
>>47616355...I never knew I needed to bully Itachi before.Let's bully him more. It doesn't hurt to be a little bit tsun, right?Or maybe now's the time for dere? After all, we don't want to be one of *those* intolerable girls. If Tsuki's gonna do it, she's gonna do it *right!*So, pick 3 for tsun, or pick 1 for dere?
>>47616725I was saving that for Winnie Quest, but I'm glad I got to use it here.
>>47616757You're welcome, Anon!

“S-sure, that wouldn’t be so bad, I guess…” you mutter.You aren’t sure what to make of this man- he took your apology at face value, and now wants to spend some time getting to know you. He’s definitely earnest.The two of you walk over to a nearby tree and sit down, across from one another.You aren’t really sure how to start…“Ah, let me start, Tsuki. It’s often easier to open up to people when you know more about them.” Itachi says, with the same gentle smile.He talks about himself, his childhood among the Uchiha clan, about his love for his younger brother and his family. He says that while they’ve grown apart as he’s gotten older, that he would still do anything for them. He talks briefly about his brief time at the academy, and his own time as a genin. It seems he too lost one of his teammates early in life. You can tell he’s trying to downplay his own accomplishments- graduating the academy at 8, becoming a chunin at 10, joining ANBU at 11… and made it’s head at 16. It’s insane. Is he even human?You listen to everything. You figure he’s skipping over certain things, but it’s probably because of his ANBU work- classified stuff, as Danzo has explained.“Well Tsuki, that’s me, more or less. I hope I didn’t bore you.” he says.Far from it. He’s very interesting- for more than just a few reasons.You…1. Begin to tell him your story (leaving some things out)2. Begin to tell him your story (Tell him everything)3. Have a question before you continue. (What?)
>>47616957>1. Begin to tell him your story (leaving some things out)>3. Have a question before you continue. (What?)What is it like to work for ANBU? If you can tell.
>>47616957>1. Begin to tell him your story (leaving some things out)Love dad, getting along better with teammates, the full details about the mission, Danzo's wisdom and worldliness, the maid's cookies, missing mom, that stuff. Don't talk about how we know Danzo is ROOT, nor how he's training us, nor all the other potentially damaging things.
>>47616957>1. Begin to tell him your story (leaving some things out)Our release, and maybe our training with Danzo.
>>47616957>1. Begin to tell him your story (leaving some things out)
>>47616957>1. Begin to tell him your story (leaving some things out)Our release, Being shown ROOT,
>>47616957>1. Begin to tell him your story (leaving some things out)leavin out Danzo and our release and the shadow clones.
>>47616957>1. Begin to tell him your story (leaving some things out)Don't talk about our release.
>>47616957> 1. Begin to tell him your story (leaving some things out)ROOT base, release, and maybe Danzo training
>>47616957>1. Begin to tell him your story (leaving some things out)Don't talk about our release, ROOT or any of that stuff.
>>47616957>1. Begin to tell him your story (leaving some things out)Pretty much tell him everything, including we know Danzo, but leave out our personal training and our Bloodline. He'd already know this but by admiting it we are becoming more trustworthy>3. Have a question AFTER you continue.What was it like working for the ANBU, I can see the appeal, no red tap, just doing what needs to be done
>>47616957> Tell him your storyWargle already said he knows that Danzo works for Dad.
>>47616957>3. Have a question before you continue. (What?)Have you ever uh, taught anyone anything? Kinda missing from the story (or at least the summary of it we got)
We should make an offhand joke about how this will be a learning experience for everyone. So many Smiles to protect
1. Telling slightly redacted storyWith questions about ANBU and his teaching.Writing.
You take a deep breath...“Not boring at all, Itachi-sensei. I do have a question, but I’ll wait until after I share.” you say.“Of course, Tsuki. Please, go ahead.” he responds.You start with something small- one of the first memories you have. Sitting on your father’s lap in his study, both of you looking out the window. He was explaining how the electric lights in town work- and you understood. This made you happy, and you said as such. Father laughed, praised your intelligence, and patted your head. It’s a precious memory, and one you hope you’ll remember forever.From there, you explain your life growing up in the manor, being collectively raised by your Father, Maru and Danzo. As you mention Danzo’s name, you look for any reaction- but he doesn’t seem to react, other than to be listening intently. You continue, talking about how Danzo taught you the basics of ninjutsu, chakra application, and so on, and how this teaching helped you greatly during your time at the academy. You talk about your friends, and about Nori and Hinata. He laughs as you talk about your interactions with them- he seems genuinely amused by your story. You talk about getting to know Nori and Hinata better, and eventually reach your introduction to Ebisu-sensei. You talk about the bell test, and it’s results, and Nori’s use of her strange chakra. He nods at this, but says nothing. You go on to talk about the mission- and you spare no detail. The entire event is practically engraved into your mind, anyway. Eventually you reach Ebisu’s self sacrifice- it still wrenches your insides to think about it.Eventually, you reach the here and now. You sigh.
“It’s definitely a bit odd to hear your entire life summarized and put into words” you say- although it does give you perspective.“You’ve been through a lot, Tsuki. You and your friends handled it very well. I know Ebisu is proud of you.” he says, looking off into the distance. You’ve heard it before- from the Fourth and from Guy, but it’s still reassuring to hear.“Thank you for sharing, Tsuki. I appreciate it. Now, you said you had a question?” he inquires.“Well, yes. I was wondering, how is it to work for ANBU? Seems stressful- yet liberating, in a way. Doing what needs done at the Hokage’s command.” you say, resting against the tree behind you.Itachi laughs. “You romanticize it a little, I think. We’re not unlike most shinobi. ANBU is simply an extension of Konoha’s regular forces- just specialized in clandestine operations.”“...but yes, it is liberating, Tsuki. If it’s something you think you might be interested in, after you and your team have grown, don’t be afraid to ask for admittance. I think you’d be a wonderful fit.” he says, beaming at you.“...I had one other question, too, sensei.” you say, quietly.“Oh? Please, go ahead.” he responds.“...Have you ever taught anyone else before?” you blurt out.He goes wide eyed for a split second, then laughs again.“Still worried about what I can teach you, or rather, my ability? I suppose I cannot really blame you. I taught my younger brother much of what he knows- and as director of ANBU I am responsible for the training of new agents.”“But no, you three will be my first official team of genin, if that’s your question.” he says, still chuckling.
“Now, I have a question for you. I am skilled in most of the disciplines of the shinobi- and I’m most curious… What would you have me teach you?” he questions, still wearing the smile from earlier.1. Taijutsu & Kenjutsu. You wish to shore up your weaknesses and potentially learn swordplay.2. Ninjutsu. It’s your strong point, and you know Itachi must know lots of useful techniques.3. Physical training- speed and strength. While not directly applicable, you feel like these are important foundations to expand upon.4. Chakra control and Hand-sign usage. While you feel you have a good grasp on these as well, there is always more to learn, and who better to teach you these skills?5. Genjutsu. You’ve heard the Uchiha was especially skilled in these abilities.
>>47617655>3. Physical training- speed and strength. While not directly applicable, you feel like these are important foundations to expand upon
>>47617655>1. Taijutsu & Kenjutsu. You wish to shore up your weaknesses and potentially learn swordplay.
>>47617655>1. Taijutsu & Kenjutsu. You wish to shore up your weaknesses and potentially learn swordplay.>3. Physical training- speed and strength. While not directly applicable, you feel like these are important foundations to expand upon.For now it would be better to focus on my weakpoints right sensei?
>>47617655If were going puppet either 2. Ninjutsu. It’s your strong point, and you know Itachi must know lots of useful techniquesor 4. Chakra control and Hand-sign usage. While you feel you have a good grasp on these as well, there is always more to learn, and who better to teach you these skills?
>>476176551. Taijutsu & Kenjutsu. You wish to shore up your weaknesses and potentially learn swordplay. Physical training- speed and strength. While not directly applicable, you feel like these are important foundations to expand upon.
>>47617655>1. Taijutsu & Kenjutsu. You wish to shore up your weaknesses and potentially learn swordplay.If you have the skill and the speed you don't need the brute strengthNaturally we wanna learn a bit of everything, but lets start by shoring up a big weakness
>>47617655Itachi's actually physically frail...I'm gonna go with either Ninjutsu or Genjutsu.
>>47617682I agree with ya man, im suggesting the sword play just to bring our melee to at least 2ish but then planning on shifting to chakra control heavily
>>47617655>4. Chakra control and Hand-sign usage. While you feel you have a good grasp on these as well, there is always more to learn, and who better to teach you these skills?we've got tenten for taijutsu training, we don't need an advanced instructor for that yet since we suck at it so tenten should be enough to get us to 1 or 2 taijustsu
>>47617655>1. Taijutsu & Kenjutsu. You wish to shore up your weaknesses and potentially learn swordplay.Get this up first.
>>47617712He was somewhat frail in canon due to his plot-illness.His strength stat is a 3.5, which while not amazing, is above average.He has a 4.5 in Taijutsu.
>>47617655>2. Ninjutsu. It’s your strong point, and you know Itachi must know lots of useful techniques.Let Danzo hire somebody for the punch-n-sword training.
>>47617655>2. Ninjutsu. It’s your strong point, and you know Itachi must know lots of useful techniques.>4. Chakra control and Hand-sign usage. While you feel you have a good grasp on these as well, there is always more to learn, and who better to teach you these skills?Genjutsu can come later
>>47617682>2. Ninjutsu. It’s your strong point, and you know Itachi must know lots of useful techniques
>>476176552. Ninjutsu. It’s your strong point, and you know Itachi must know lots of useful techniques.Since we already have 10/10 for Kenjutsu and by extension Taijutsu
Hmm, would it be better to be strong, fast and clumsy at hand to hand combat, or very skilled but slow and weak? They both have their benefits, but our speed is decent, and our strength is kinda useless if we can't get into close range anyway. >>47617655>3. Physical training- speed and strength. While not directly applicable, you feel like these are important foundations to expand upon.No matter what, being strong and fast is important. Kenjustu, ninjutsu, taijutsu, genjutsu, puppet, etc... all get improved if we're fast. Like Sanic heghog fast, really goddamn fast!
Look anons if we want to do puppetry we have to start working on it now, its not something you can just dabble in you have to either fully commit to it or not do it besides their are plenty of other good tajutsu specialists its a waste to not work on chakra or Ninjutsu with one of the best in the village
>>47617655>2. Ninjutsu. It’s your strong point, and you know Itachi must know lots of useful techniques.taijutsu training is for tenten, or possibly some guy Danzo knows.
>>47617847If we're hitting with a sword that channels our release, no real point in being the biggest and the strongest.Still not really down for puppetry.
>>47617868We got a teacher willing to teach.Why not fucking ask hiim?>>47617655>1. Taijutsu & Kenjutsu. You wish to shore up your weaknesses and potentially learn swordplay.
if we do go puppetry should we make one based on pic related?
Pretty contested, but Taijutsu wins. Will throw some ninjutsu in there as well- obviously he'd teach you some as well. Writing.
>>47618009Sure why not. Think of all the weaponry that you can hide under the shawl.
>>47618056>but Taijutsu wins.Good.
>>47618009>>47618066What about going for a mass approch, have 10 little ones, one for each finger, while its hard to control so many, if they are small and have a simple function it'd balance out? Make'm freaky lil fuckers since its ROOT stuff. some can be bombs, some can contain poison, bear traps for mouths and so on
>>47618133You could do both. Kankuro, Sasori and Sasori's grandma all had scrolls the kept their extra puppets in. But I don't think we'll be using ten at once for a while.
>>47618133I could back this
>>47618162Nah I imagined them as a situational thing, like if fighting clusters of foes. Sorta have a selectionPuppet Team #1: Our go to battle puppetPuppet Team #2: The 10 little swarm puppets
>>47618133I'll only back this if they look like cute little bunnies.
>>47618133Those are pretty damn cool, makes me think a tad of Menma's Masked creatures a little. But I could get behind a horde of Puppet Goblins. Makes for a nice contrast to, Nice and neat Tsuki, creepy ROOT

“I’m rather unskilled in Taijutsu, sensei. While I would love to learn some techniques from you to utilize my natural ability, I really need to shore up my personal combat abilities.” you finally say, after much consideration.“The two need not be mutually exclusive, Tsuki. I agree that we need to make sure you are at least moderately able to cover all aspects of the shinobi- and I suspect you’d like to be able to use the swords you took from Raiga, am I right?” he responds.“Yes, I would, sensei. I’ve already bought a pair of practice blades to begin learning- I feel like I’ll be able to make great use of them.” you answer.He stands up, and offers you his hand to help you up.You take it.“Thank you for giving me this chance, Tsuki. I now understand your reservations, and I promise you won’t regret your choice.” he says with his soft smile.“N-no problem, sensei!” you stammer, quickly retracting your hand. “B-besides, it’s Nori you’ll need to worry about! She’s a wild one! And she’ll probably be late to boot!”He laughs. “I look forward to talking to them both in earnest. We’ll accomplish much together- I can feel it. I only ask that you give me some time- I can’t promise to change the Hokage’s mind overnight.”You nod. With that, Itachi begins his decent down Hokage Mountain. “Tomorrow, meet me on top of the Hokage’s offices. Morning should be fine, there’s less people then. Bring your swords. We have a lot to cover!”You bid him farewell, and exhale.You really aren’t sure how to feel about him, but you can decide tomorrow.
>>47618203hide the mini puppets in the dolls dress? Also give said doll lots of brutal serrated weaponry.
>>47618266I like the cut of your jib anon, we can practice puppetry on our legion of stuffed toys at home that we undoubtedly have at the end of our bed
>>47618266Maybe one puppet is humanoid, but is secretly two puppets?Top half and bottom half are separate but act like one.>>47618230YES
Please go puppets they are fun to draw and design
>>47618263...damn he's good.And cute~
>>47618314oh god they start off cute and fluffy when deployed but then they twist and warp when the hidden weapons start coming out...
>>47618326I only support puppets if we do it secretly as part of our Root persona
>>47617884>He doesn't want the Naruto equivalent of a standCome on anon
>>47618344Thats the Plan, puppets are our ROOT personas thing. Hell im willing to fail the Chunin exams if we have to, so we can hide our power level...i'd rather not though.
>>47618346>>47618342>>47618314>>47618266Jesus I'm liking this puppet idea more and more.
Time is river, flowing ever forward. The next few months of your life will be very busy, you suspect. You will have to make a great many choices on how to manage your time between training, missions, socialization, and independent study.But, you look forward to these challenges. Is there anything else you wish to do, or anyone you wish to see?If not, we will initiate voting on how to spend the next four weeks of Tsuki’s life.1. Yes, I want to do/see… (What?)2. No, I am ready to move forward.
>>47618346>he doesn't want dual lightsabersdon't disappoint me like this, man
>>47618378Just wait until we get the best puppetry teacher of all Tsuki of the 100 puppets when
>>47618386>2. No, I am ready to move forward.
>>47618390>Not commanding a puppet with the pommel of each sword
>>47618390We might be able to do both.>>47618386I don't know. I can't think of anything of the top of my head.
>>476183862. No, I am ready to move forward
>>47618365Does it matter that much? I'd rather keep the puppets secret then use them in the exams. It's not like there won't be another chance to take them.Hell, why does anyone take the Chunin exams their first time anyway, what with how much death and dismemberment can possibly occur.
>>47618390Dual Lightsabers are shit anon, you either go one or the double bladed
>>476183862. No, I am ready to move forward.Aside from continuing support lets get going>>47618390Don't worry anon, we'll channel our chakra into our puppets so they can use them. Secondly imagine channeling this chakra into the threads and using those as weapons! we're fucking Walter!
>>47618386>1. Yes, I want to do/see… (What?)Grab a little practice puppet to practice with at home. Bonus if it's cute.
>>47618417Any plebian can use a puppet, Kankuro is proofWe have an incredibly powerful innate ability that's fairly unique to us, swords that can channel it, and a teacher who wants to expand on it, why waste it with puppet faggorty?
>>47618458I'll back this.
>>47618414That's not Chiyo
>>47618458>>47618474We can get that later on.
>>47618344>>47618346>SUTANDO-DAWe've seen puppeteers that hide and use their puppets from a distance, ones that fight from inside their puppets, and even one who puppeted himself, but have we seen someone fight alongside their puppet? A puppet that stands beside us in battle, a clone that isn't a clone, imbued with special powers and great strength... I'm down for a mechanical stand!>>47618390>two swords>we use one and the puppet uses the other
>>47618458Moving our stuffed animals around the room all happy and playfully, start havng our teddy open the door for us, walking him around the house taking him on adventures?
>>47618472puppets shooting plasma blasts while we hack people with lightsabers
>>47618472Anon its one of the hardest things to learn in universe an only a handful of people are actually good at it
>>47618458I think we can allocate time for that when we vote for actions in the timeskip.
People puppets cannot use chakra that is one of their weaknesses. So having them use one of the swords isn't an option neither is them using our release.
>>47618490We already have the perfect thing to yell when our stand punches people
>>47618511good thing we can git gud at more than one thing at once, thanks to shadow clones
>>47618386I'm >>47618416And some faggot is quoting me acting like that's his post >>47618503
>>47618386Get hinata to wear ebisu's glasses.
>>47618503shit not sure which one is me. I did a generic vote for move on.
>>47618490Well, we could always have a Shadow Clone manipulating our puppet for us, and fight alongside it that way.
>>47618525no, human puppets CAN use chakra, which is why they're better than regular puppets.
Yuri time with Hinata and/or Nori when?
>>47618557So we're just going to buy a human puppet at the store then? Prety sure that's taboo. Not against learning puppetry but don't make things up.
>>47618557I think he meant it as an exclamatory remark, like 'People, puppets cannot...'
>>47618585I hope not.
>>47618585>>>/out/We have Patrician tastes, and will require a husbando. Preferably Lee or Haku.
Seems like everyone is ready to move on.Time skip cometh.Writing
For anyone who doesn't know heres the info on puppets http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Puppet
>>47618490>>47618534We can even do the physically impossible poses with chakra strings! >>47618549Or we could just get gud enough to fight and puppet at the same time, ultimate coordination and teamwork with only one person! >>47618525Puppets can't use chakra, but seals can be activated at a distance, and electricity can be produced by machinery. >>47618557>>47618594>>47618596Only Sasori knows how to do that, and besides, it's really freaky.
>>47618615Itachi motherfucker, he's one smooth criminal and only five years older.
>>47618615Lee or Itachi.Preferably Lee.
>>47618632>Its really freakyWe must make sacrifices for the village anon
Lee is worst husbando
>>47618649You do realize human puppets are made out of dead people, right
>>47618658Shit-tier opinion anon~~although he's not that great either~~
>>47618632>Only Sasori knows how to do thatChiyo does too.
>>47618678Of course anon, the Leaf has alot of enemies
>>47618615Haku is best girl
Naruto a shit
>>47618627All this and http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Human_Puppet tells me is that Human puppets retain their chakra and kekkai genki. Nowhere is it mentioned that we can't channel our own chakra/Kekkai Genkai through normal puppets.
>>47618739It doesn't say it can happen either. The point of human puppets is so that they can do jutsu. Regular puppets can't because they never had a chakra system to begin with.They're not like melee weapons, which you're in constant contact with, they're at a distance. Chakra strings can be cut, too. So that's a thing.
Ok Bunny Puppets, each only like a foot tall#1 Kunai for paws, nice and simple Melee bunny#2 The Bunny from monty python, got a bear trap for a jaw#3 Poison bunny, punch it and a cloud of poison gas comes out#4 Bomb bunny, he goes boom after grabing your face#5 Needle bunny, it spins around hurling needles from its floppy earsAnyone got more ideas?
>>47618794>>47618739Actually, I just remembered that you TOTALLY CAN USE NINJUTSU THROUGH PUPPETS! Remember when Neji killed that archer by shooting chakra through his chakra strings?
>>47618806Those are good for now.
>>47618830Through strings != through puppets.
>>47618806A metal bunny that works as a lighting rod for our jutsu
The first thing you’ll need to do is try to determine how much time will be spent on training, how many missions you accept, how much time you wish to study on your own, and if you wish to spend time with others.How will you spend Week One?1. Focus primarily on training (Will go to training subvote)2. Focus more on missions (Will increase your standing within the Leaf)3. Focus more of independant study (Increases INT and can learn Jutsu from the academy library)4. Spend time with your team / other people. (Grow closer to your comrades or people of your choice. Will write a little vignette detailing the experience)5. Do all 4 equally.
>>47618830If we did that our threads would become like that laser room from Resident Evil...which is awesome
>>47618856>1. Focus primarily on training (Will go to training subvote)
>>47618849If anything, that's better.Means we can Stellar Release chakra garrotes attached to our puppets
>>47618856>1. Focus primarily on training (Will go to training subvote)Maximum overdrive!
>>47618856>1. Focus primarily on training (Will go to training subvote)To be ready for a mission which can come next
>>476188561. Focus primarily on training (Will go to training subvote)
>>47618830Not chakra strings. That was spider-man, the guy with six arms. Totally different. He was using spider web shit.
>>476188561 and 4
>>47618887Here's a link for proof or whatever, since I didn't recall it and had to google https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODKRd4taApA
>>47618806What about a bunny which contains a sealing jutsu or something? like it jumps on you and a seal effects the opponent (depending what we load it with)
>>47618856>1. Focus primarily on training (Will go to training subvote)>>47618830Naw that was physical threads made by a technique that conducted chakra.
>>47618887>>47618913Ah, still I see no reason that shouldn't work for chakra strings. They're like actual wires made of chakra, people even get tied up and tripped by them! At the very least we could do like >>47618857 and create laser tripwires and garrotes.
You choose to spend the time training.You may choose a training partner to help a particular skill grow. You will also grow closer to them over time, although less than if you were relaxing with them.1. Danzo (Stellar release training)2. TenTen (Taijutsu)3. Itachi (Taijutsu & Ninjutsu)
>>47618990>3. Itachi (Taijutsu & Ninjutsu)
>>476189901. Danzo (Stellar release training)
>>476189903. Itachi (Taijutsu & Ninjutsu)
>>47618990>1. Danzo (Stellar release training)
>>47618990>1. Danzo (Stellar release training)3. Itachi (Taijutsu & Ninjutsu)Balance pls?
>>47618990>2. TenTen (Taijutsu)
>>47618967Eh, I dunno, man. Just seems to me like you wouldn't need to make human puppets if your regular puppets could already do ninjutsu. Sasori never did it, so I don't see why we could. Unless QM fiat I supose.
>>47618990>3. Itachi (Taijutsu & Ninjutsu)Lets bond with Sensei for a bitmight i suggest this set up for our monthW1: Training with ItachiW2: Training with DanzoW3: MissionsW4: Do all 4 equally (Training with Itachi)In our personal spare time learn puppet stuff and practice with our own stuffed animals
>>47619050The human puppets were to us OTHER PEOPLE'S techniques. Like the Kazekage's kekkai genkei. Sasori could never use that by himself, but by channelling his chakra through the puppet he could.
>>47618990>>47619090Ill support this, also gets thing moving a little better
>>47619090Oh shit a man with a plan. That looks really good...
>>47619091What I'm saying is that if he could use his own ninjutsu through his own puppets, then why did he make a bunch of human puppets? I mean, sure, kekkei genkai I can understand, but all of the puppets we saw him use were previously alive people. Don't see why he'd go to the trouble if you could just do it yourself.
>>47619100Hey guys, what if we made puppets that could be controlled by special little chibi shadow clones from the inside?
>>47619127He was a freaky sicko psychopath who likes turning people into "art". He doesn't NEED a reason to turn people into puppets!
>>47619090swap missions with spending time with teammates, and we've got a deal
>>47619127Because Sasori as a puppet master. His own skills and techniques where all about the creation and usage of puppets.Why wouldn't he want a puppet that would let him do elemental ninjutsu?
>>47619127Human puppets, on average, are stronger and more resilient than your average puppet, and retain all special skills related to it- Sasori has a few with Sharingan, for example. But it's forbidden and murder, usually, so most people avoid it
>>47619090My fucking man, here's the plan
>>47619050>>47619127Sasori didn't really have any special Jutsu skills apart from puppets. He created and used human puppets to use their special Jutsu and Chakra. He was also a sociopath so I don't think he cared about ethics much.>>47619090Might as well do this.
>>47619090In the interest of time, who supports this plan? 1. Aye 2. Nay
>>47619090This is good
>>47619090nah, we need to start helping Hinata get stronk too
>>47619090I don't see why we can't learn the basics of puppetry through shadow clone jutsu whilst we do other training with Danzo. Isn't that the main reason why shadow clone jutsu is so good.
>>47619213 >1. Aye
>>47619255We're not that stupid.
>>47619229We're not good enough to hold a clone that long without doing literally nothing else.
>>47619213>1. Aye Yeah go for it, so long as we social during our missions
>>47619255Anon, you don't have that ability!
>>47619280Nor the stupidity.
>>47619213>1A resounding sure why not, can't wait to cheer for Neji in the finals, lets work on sorting him out
>>47619213Nay, want some teammates in there
>>47619188Forgot about the durability and stuff. I guess that makes sense. Still doesn't explain the jutsu-puppetry problem, though.
>>47619303I'd rather have teammate time outside the timeskip so we get more dialogue personally, also were likely to only get summaries of interaction during the timeskip so...
>>47619303We will do during training and missions
>>47619313I'll look into it before making a final call on it. I don't distinctly ever remember the puppets doing jutsu on their own, but I can't see why you could use the puppet to origination point for your techniques to fuck with people.
>>47619299Not a bad idea. We said we'd go and look for an opportunity where we can observe Neji's abilities when he's not sparring or training. Bring Hinata along, of course.
>>47619368Eh. I always saw puppetry as a 'mind over matter' type thing, like good ol' engineering vs hardcore ninja magic, so maybe I'm just partial to that idea. Whatever you choose, Wargle.
>>47619407I've always seen it as engineering plus ninja magic, ninjaneering if you will.
>>47619213I'd want to at least raise them social bonds with the team somewhow
>>47619428Well, being able to use jutsu willy-nilly also seemed like it'd get rid of the drawback of the technique, too.
>>47619484The drawbacks of the technique is needing to build a robot and spend ages learning how to use it, so most puppet masters are relatively shit at everything else, which means they have to focus even more on the puppetting, wich leads to them being even more shit at everything else...It's a vicious cycle. Ninjutsu isn't even that good with puppets, fuinjutsu seems to be the alternative that most puppet users go with. Things like explosive tags and poison gas can sub in for most ninjutsu pretty well.
>>47619572Plenty of sealing techniques can contain a jutsu for later use, those can be used with puppets.
>>47619572i think Tsuki's exceptional enough to learn puppets to some degree and still be a ninjutsu powerhouse, that said, we'll just have to see. though I wonder if we could give puppets fusion cores made from our release...
You opt to follow this training regimen:W1: Training with ItachiW2: Training with DanzoW3: MissionsW4: Do all 4 equally (Training with Itachi)Week 1:You report to Itachi-sensei as requested, and he proceeds to educate you on the basics of taijutsu (+0.5) and Ninjutsu (+0.5). He also teaches you the Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique, a basic C-rank offensive ninjutsu. You also feel yourself growing closer to Itachi…Week 2: You opt to spend this week focusing on your release training. Because you stole him last week, both Hinata and Nori will benefit from training with Itachi. (+1.0 Stellar Release Mastery, will go further into this in a moment) You feel yourself becoming closer to Danzo….Week 3: This week you focus on completing missions. All the missions you are given are menial tasks, but you perform them with gusto. (+ 7 Completed D-Rank Missions, +Team 7 Bond) Week 4: You decide to spend time doing a bit of everything, while training with Itachi. While you don’t feel yourself become more proficient in Ninjutsu, he does continue to teach you Taijutsu (+0.5). He also teaches you another Fire Technique: Fire Dragon Bullet, a short-range fire technique you saw Ebisu-sensei use during the fight with Raiga. You also complete a few more missions (+ 3 Completed D-rank Missions). You spend some time in the academy library, but not enough to make any significant impact on your abilities. You do read up on the basics of puppetry, however, and pick up a basic practice puppet from TenTen’s shop.Writing Team Event, then we’ll go into the Stellar Release information.
>>47619597I don't know about that. The kote is treated like a big deal and that's all it does. The only things that work like that pre-Boruto seem to requires blood and chakra to work.
>>47619597The kote will not exist for another 20 years or so, anon. Sorry.
>>47619619Do our fire techniques look blue?If so, any reaction from Itachi on that?
>>47619626well, we've got danzo so weird blood magic isn't completely out of the question, eh we'll figure something out.
>>47619626not a Kote, thats way later stuff. The Scrolls containing Jutsu still exist, Shikamaru used one in the anime vs kakuzu.
>>47619646>we've got danzo so weird blood magic isn't completely out of the questionOh god.What if he offers implanting someone's special eye into ours?
>>47619639Right now you're simply using Fire Release, so it doesn't bleed through. However, you can try to blend stellar chakra into an ability, to see how it affects it.More on that in a bit.
>>47619650I'm not sure that's what you think it is. Judging from the other times people use scrolls I'd guess it was either:a) just a bunch of water sealed in a scrollb) a jutsu formula, like what Kakashi used to summon his dogs underground a is noting but a regular storage seal, and b is just the written equivalent of handseals, you need blood to activate it and still need to use all the chakra you normally would, it only saves you time.
Tsuki's Current Stats:Tsuki Norihime Ninjutsu 3.0Taijutsu 1.5Genjutsu 2.5Intelligence 2.5Strength 1.0Speed 2.0Stamina 2.5Hand seals 2.5Total: 17.5 Stellar Release Mastery Level: 1.5/5
>>47619674>Tsuki will acquire bloodlines and shit via her Danzo>No one will know about thisI never knew how much I wanted this
>>47619719People would notice if her eyes were different.
>>47619696I see; is that a jutsu, though? Or did they just seal a bunch of water in a scroll? Puddle No Jutsu?Not being antagonistic, just wondering.
>>47619725 Not if they're on her arms
>>47619748no idea, think it's down to interpretation
>>47619748I think sealed water into a scroll.>>47619753Oh shit.Good point.Very good point.Maybe have them under her hair on the back of her head? Or on/around her shoulder blades.
>>47619756>interpretationThe bane of arguments about canon everywhere.
>>47619707lift some weights gurl
Didn't Jaraiya seal amaterasu's flames in a scroll?
>>47619763Eyes are plug and play anon, just stick it in when we go on a ROOT mission then return it after
I feel like that's a bridge too far for Tsuki and night actually get her to go "okay maybe Danzo's shit got shut down for a reason." Of course Danzo probably realizes this, which is why he wouldn't offer it.
>>47619763Or we could just internalize them if their like byakugan or something with xray vision which I recall some magic eyes have... eyes on the inside and all that.
You, Nori and Hinata decide to spend the day relaxing: with shopping! After all, summer is in full effect, and you all need to coordinate your look; especially after that last mission, where a cat tore of Nori’s coats to shreds- she fully intended to keep wearing it, but you insisted.You also bring Itachi-sensei along. Although you frame it as a group teambuilding excercise.He very quickly realizes this isn’t the case.The three of you begin to pile your bags upon him; soon enough he is carrying multiple bags piled high.“G-girls, I don’t quite see the positives of this exercise…” he groans“Nonsense, Sensei!” You shout from ahead. “You just have to keep up with us!”This is greeted by laughs of approval from Nori and Hinata.The three of you take off running, while Itachi struggles to keep up while balancing your purchases…(+Team 7 Bond)
>>47619804>>47619763>>47619725>>47619753WE HAVE A TEAMMATE WITH A BYAKUGANSHE KNOWS WHAT WE EAT FOR BREAKFAST EVERY MORNING WITHOUT HAVING TO ASK
>>47619854>“G-girls, I don’t quite see the positives of this exercise…” he groans
>>47619894Forgot to add:But seriously, though, that's adorable.
>>47619854Being Itachi is suffering
>>47619854It's funny because he'll get us back somehow like a muddy mission or something
Alright, this is gonna be somewhat messy. We're going to start with Technique creation.You have reached a high enough level of mastery with stellar chakra to create a technique- through rigorous trial and error, you are able to refine a chosen proto-jutsu into an actual technique. During this time period, you’ve also tested various applications of stellar chakra.Known Proto Jutsu, with currently known effects:1. Add more chakra! (short range blast of intense heat energy)2. Try to condense the chakra (creates tiny sphere of light)3. Attempt to direct the flow of chakra (mid-range blast of energy)4. Internalize the chakra (energizes you and makes you feel stronger and faster- for a time)5. Use a different body part to try and utilize the chakra (Focusing Stellar chakra into different body parts produces different effects)(Choose One Proto-Jutsu to Refine)
>>47620065>2. Try to condense the chakra (creates tiny sphere of light)
>>47620065>1. Add more chakra! (short range blast of intense heat energy)Shotgun
>>476200652. Try to condense the chakra (creates tiny sphere of light)
>>47620065>1. Add more chakra! (short range blast of intense heat energy)
>>47620065>6. PUT SOME JUTSU JUICE THROUGH THE PRACTICE PUPPET!
>>47620065>Attempt to direct the flow of chakra (mid-range blast of energy)Starlite ninja go!
>>47620065>3. Attempt to direct the flow of chakra (mid-range blast of energy)
>>47620065>2. Try to condense the chakra (creates tiny sphere of light)sure why not. Especially if it has similar effects to the last tiny sphere of light we made.
>>47620065>4. Internalize the chakra (energizes you and makes you feel stronger and faster- for a time)I wanna do more damage to whoever hits us through severe burns than they do to us.
>>47620065>1. Add more chakra! (short range blast of intense heat energy)Keeps taijutsu focussed enemies away!
>>47620065>2. Try to condense the chakra (creates tiny sphere of light)This looks like the right amount of ridiculous stopping power to mix with our fire techniques covering short range.Though I wonder what we'd get with doing 5 through our eyes.It's probably going blind
>>47620184>>2. Try to condense the chakra (creates tiny sphere of light)Dat spoiler thoEhehehehehehe

Light ball it is.
>>47620264So we got a rasengan nuke?
>>47620310Really wish we could come up with some thing that isn't a rasengun varient, don't get me wrong it's cool, but it feels like being a copycat you know?
>>47620065>5. Use a different body part to try and utilize the chakra (Focusing Stellar chakra into different body parts produces different effects)Eyes
>>47620310Nah. It's more like a little grenade.Rasengan spins, while this is just super dense.>>47620322It's a cool technique, so why not make our own variant of it?Same with the Chidori, if/when we see it.
You’ve worked long and hard to make it practical- and you think you’ve done it! By consistently pressurizing the chakra, you can create the sphere. While it is quite chakra hungry, it’s destructive power is quite amazing.The biggest issue is actually hitting anything with it- it has weight, and the longer you hold it, it gets bigger and heavier- making it even more unwieldy. However, you’ve determined that if you build up a large flow of stellar chakra behind it, you can release it all at once- firing the sphere off forcefully. It allows you to hit foes more reliably, and you can charge it for a time to increase its destructive power. It’s downside is just how consumptive it is- with your current levels of chakra usage, you feel like you’d only be able to use this twice, maybe only once if you charge it up.But, it certainly looks pretty while it flies- like a shooting star, or a comet.What do you wish to name this technique?
>>47620322This less whirling ball of chakra and more miniature star in our hand. It's just close enough to a rasengan plebs will notice.
>>47620344Star bolt Jutsu?
>>47620344Stellar Release: Shooting Star!
>>47620310>>47620322It behaves nothing like the rasengan my african companions
>>47620344Stellar Release: Meteor Shot
>>47620344Star core jutsu
>>47620344BLAZING WHITE LIGHT COMET STREAK JUSTICE POWER ANNIHILATION SPHERE NUCLEAR INFORNO DEMON BLAZE MK II NO JUTSU!
>>47620344Stellar Release: Meteor Grenade/Cannon
>>47620344Stellar Release: Corona Crash
Stellar Release: Shooting Star!Stellar Release: Meteor Shot!Both are plausible. Which would people prefer?
>>47620368I kind of like this one. It's straightforward and fits this one well. I'd rather save some of the other more abstract names for when we're running out of ideas.
>>47620397Specifically this is to represent the density, and also for if we decide to use it to just absolutely destroy something at close range where it wouldn't be a shot it still applies.
>>47620344Stellar Release: Starfall, because it would come arcing down
Stellar Release: Crashing Comet
>>47620344Hoshiton: NagareboshiSteller Release: Shooting Star no jutsu
>>47620464>>47620466 here, supporting Shooting Star
>>47620464>Stellar Release: Shooting Star!
>>47620464Could we, at some point, mix Earth and Stellar chakra?
>>47620464Eh I guess out of those two I prefer shooting star.
>>47620464shooting starits too good pass up
>>47620469Maybe at the most basic level, but I think naming the different techniques is good.For example, if we just build up the mass and smack someone with it to destroy them, we could call it Meteor Hammer or the like. We're basically making up an entire school of jutsu here based off of the basic release.
>>47620513I think a suicidal shadow clone could work too. Once it uses all the chakra up it explodes.
>>47620496You could try it, but generally Elemental release chakra doesn't play will with others.>>47620469Using it at close range is a really bad idea>>47620498Sorry anon, trying to keep everything moving
>>47620539>Using it at close range is a really bad ideaSpecialize our defenses first!
>>47620531I'd like 'Nova Clone' for that one
>>47620539>You could try it, but generally Elemental release chakra doesn't play will with others.Alright then.Was gonna suggest calling it Meteor Shot if we can grab like a rock and use Stellar chakra with it.
>>47620539>Using it at close range is a really bad ideaThat's why we combo it with Shadow Clones. They can use it to punch people without any issue.>>47620575I say we use Meteor for names if we ever find a way to turn it red.
You decide on Stellar Release: Shooting Star! (You have unlocked Stellar Release: Shooting Star Technique)During your training to hone your Stellar Release, you reach an epiphany- you should try infusing Stellar chakra into other techniques. Not all techniques will be compatible, but it’s worth a shot to see how the effectiveness increases- you figure obvious choices are techniques of the Fire or Lightning release. Others may also be a choice, if they react to chakra. You might need to be careful, though, as Stellar Chakra is very volatile.List of Compatible Jutsu Known:Shadow Clone Jutsu (Mastery Level too low)Fire Dragon BulletGreat Fireball Technique (Mastery Level too low)Do you wish to try combining Fire Dragon Bullet with Stellar Chakra?1. Yes2. No
>>47620599Is there... any reason NOT to try?
>>47620599>1. Yeswhy not?
>>47620589I want Meteor for if there's actual rock to it.>>47620599>1. Yes
>>47620599>YesWhat could go wrong? Absolutely Nothing
>>47620599>> 1.YesAlso Wargle are you going to have the main jutsu level up as well?
So anyone else looking for the chance to turn gaara's defense into glass while he's wearing it..
>>47620599Two words: Atomic Breath!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqgdWu4IvfM
>>47620687Was totally thinking about that yesterday.>>47620691>that linkWe totally need to do this at some point.Grab our enemy, kiss them, and just unleash a shitton of Stellar Chakra.
So folks anyone think our god damn jutsu could be like a Necron Gauss flayer? If we hit someone, it continues to burn and spread unless they can get a medic asap even after we leave. Leaves the skin black and dead, crumbling away
Might as well try it, right?While performing the signs for Fire Dragon Bullet, you try building up stellar chakra in your stomach instead of just fire chakra.You feel it build- it churns in your stomach, and you nearly feel like you’re going to vomit.You power through it.After what seems like an eternity, you exhale- expelling breath of bright blue flame!As it strikes the dummy, it goes beyond just burning it- the dummy seems to melt away. It also leaves residual flames that seem to burn for longe than normal.Very interesting indeed….(You’ve unlocked Fire Release: Stellar Dragon Bullet! It consumes more chakra than the standard technique, but is more damaging if hit. Think of it as napalm vs standard liquid fuel flamethrowers)
>>47620065>Use a different body part to try and utilize the chakraCan we do this with eyes and have positive result?Also, I now started to remember old filler of Naruto about bunch of ninjas gaining similar power from fallen meteor.
>>47620746I did a reverse image search and came across this cute little bundle of awesome.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAXuwCbSv4A
>>47620746Fuck yeah. Just need our teammates to give us an opportunity to unload huge amounts of damage.Which is great, because Nori's chakra chains seem like the perfect combo.
>>47620861Saddly we are keeping it hush hush for now.
>>47620878Honestly the earliest we should reveal this shit should be the Chuunin exams
>>47620861I don't think we can use this around our teammates. They'd probably get curious about the blue fire. I think the plan is to use regular lightning and fire techniques with them, and then stellerize them in secret.
>>47620861>>47620878>>47620884Yeah. We should really get advice from Danzo about when we should reveal this.Chuunin exams are a good suggestion, though.
You feel accomplished, looking back upon the past month. You feel stronger, and you know your teammates have learned and grown as well. (Updated the pastebin!)These are small steps though, and you know this. There are probably still several weed picking and cat chasing missions in your future, but you cannot help but feel that if you continue to train and work hard, you and Team 7 will achieve great things.Before you fall asleep, you remember: The Chunin Exam finals are tomorrow. You’ll definitely need to be there.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Calling it here, boys. Next Thread will be Monday or Tuesday night: Expect a big one.@WargleQM to whisper me sweet nothingsPost Thread Chat Begins Now
>>47620894Thanks personally I would want to keep it secret till Jonin exams but that might be way to difficult
>>47620905thanks for runningWhat are Itachi's impressions of Team 7 after the timeskip?
>>47620886We were also gonna keep shadow clones a secret but the moment a mission went beyond what it was supposed to we blew that load.
>>47620905>The Chunin Exam finals are tomorrow. You’ll definitely need to be there.Yeah we do!>Next Thread will be Monday or Tuesday night: Expect a big one.Oh shit!Thanks for running!
>>47620894>>47620884Keep in mind that if we wind up doing some dark shit and it gets connected to the blue fire we can NEVER let people connect it to us.So either we keep that shit on the down-low, or we try to split it up into different sections. Like I don't think the blue fire and shooting star can be easily connected, they don't look or acts like eachother at all. But that's to normal eyes, for all we know they're easily connected by anyone with a sharingan or byakugan.
>>47620906Eh, save release for chunin exams and save puppets for jonin exam?
>>47620931Or murder anyone we fight with it.
>>47620942Good way to get our humans puppets
So, I just realized we don't have a plan for the written exam. Not sure if we can pull a Naruto this time around. Maybe we've got enough intelligence to actually push through it? Then there's the question of our teammates.
>>47620942Which it seems may happen with any technique from it.Also Wargle are Fire and Lightning releases going to level like Stellar?
>>47620960Yeah. Melting them.>>47620966I think we're smart enough. Or we can read moar and become smarter.
>>47620920He thinks you all have great potential, and he wants to help you reach itHe's also a little stressed out because he doesn't know how to deal with a gaggle of teenage girls
>>47620933We will only use puppets in our yet to be made alter ego. It's perfect because people will never trace a normal ninja back to one who uses puppets. If tenten ever asks about that training puppet we bought, tell her we lost interest and continued with our normal training.
>>47620966We've got plenty of time for it. If we come up with a way to coordinate we can leach off hinata.
>>47620976>He's also a little stressed out because he doesn't know how to deal with a gaggle of teenage girlsHilarious.
>>47620988False Sound Genjutsu them the answers.
>>47620973No, as they are basic releases that most shinobi can use at least one of. I instituted the leveling mechanic behind your unique release so I could measure it, and also to gate certain techniques and combinations off behind a level wall.
>>47620988why not just straight up bribery
>>47621015So does Itachi belive we just have Fire Release and not Lightning? or what because us naturally using two with little effort may ring a few alarm bells.
>>47621011Boruto Quest? ;P>>47620974Sakura is the lowest level intellect character smart enough to answer all the questions on the exam; her INT stat in part 1 was 3.5
>>47621015Has our character asked Danzo about when we should reveal the release during the time skip?And has Itachi asked?
>>47621011We aren't playing Takeshi, and I don't think we know any genjutsu(barring academy jutsu). On an unrelated note, how do our arrows react with fire or stellar chakra?Explosive chakra arrows when?
>>47620760The Land of Bears Arc.That wasn't body movement, it was chakra shaping while (mostly) standing still using the changes in their chakra due to radiation poisoning from said meteor.
>>47620966We're not taking the chunin exams right now, and if we were Hinata could easily get the answers. The question is how to get the answers between us. Maybe chakra string telephony? Attach covert strings between us and use chakra pulses like Morse code?
>>47621029Smart enough to answer.But was she smart enough to get them right?Though I think we'll do good with a 2.5
>>47621022>>47621031Danzo's answer is to wait as long as possible before revealing it. There's no hiding it again after that.You have no idea what Itachi thinks about this subject. He hasn't asked about it, however.
>>47621015Okay. Jutsu Mastery? What is it and how do we know we are getting close to mastering a jutsu?Also: sweet nothings.
>>47621054Has Danzo commented on our training with puppets? No social part with him? :(
Im actually keen on ditching the Bow, maybe give it to Hinata.
>>47621052Though getting it to three with some library visits while also picking up some useful jutsu wouldn't be a bad idea I think.
>>47621052She answered them correctly, by herself, without cheating.
>>47621054> wait as long as possible before revealing it.It's an ace up our sleeves.We don't use it until we have to, at which point we bust out something crazy and obliterate the threat.
>>47621067Very true.>>47621069Then we'll do well.
>>47621059You got a social part because of Week 4. You gotta spend more time with Danzo to get me to write, anon <3>>47621059You haven't shown Danzo the puppets>>47621055It's only for Stellar Release in general, measuring your ability to harness stellar chakra- not specific techniques. You'll know through using the techniques how proficient you are at themSend sweet nothings to Twitter as instructed
>>47621067Or maybe just play a lot of shogi against Shikimaru.
>>47621102I would very much like to do this in the near future.
>>47621102Could work, especially if we want to explore his viability as a potential husband for Tsuki.
>>47621022I think in general people are not going to assume a new kekkai genkai popped. "Just happened to be a natural at a second release beyond their primary one" is gonna be WAY more common.
>>47621096Okay was just and you'll accept my sweet nothings here or never receive them.
>>47621125Just curious! Fucking goddamned bullshit phone!
>>47621022>>47621122We could just be a ninjutsu prodigy, we DO have an insane score for a genin already.
>>47621102>>47621112>>47621115He'd agree- but if you don't keep it interesting he'll get bored.
>>47621148Only one with a stay at 3.0 besides Nori's bullshit Uzumaki stamina.
Ok folks next time we really, really need to buckle down and learn puppets better. like put a decent amount of time into it
>>47621186Puppets are never going to happen, sorry.
>>47621186I think Orochimaru's gonna make his move next thread.I think shit's gonna go down serious.>>47621215I want puppets to be explored, at least, but it's not gonna happen next thread.
>>47621186I don't like puppets: they encourage over investment in one tool. Chakra threads though...
>>47621186I'm keen for that. especially for altar ego
>>47621223Wrong Chunin exams anon. thats in like 6 months.>>47621186So long as we can eventually work our way up to more than one puppet fuck yes.
>>47621186Only if by practicing lots it means Danzo will get us a cool teacher. considering the few options all of them are pretty badass
>>47621262Are you sure?This is a Quest, not canon. Shit can be quite different.
>>47621186>>47621215>>47621223>>47621235>>47621249>>47621262I think that puppets are a good tool, but specializing is a bad idea. The bunnies seem very useful in battle and allow us a bigger arsenal. It's not like we're hurting for cash.
>>47621283But the bunnies are puppets anon? as seen in >>47618806
>>47621283In Naruto specializing isn't a bad idea though, in universe almost every ninja is specialized anon
>>47621283Yeah, a few simple specilized mini puppets seems good, plus controlling multiple puppets is probably a chakra control thing and were pretty good at that, so the bunnies could work.
So are we going to cheer for that bastard Neji? He did call Tsuki cute. But he is branch House and a pain to Hinata.
>>47621283Why is Specializing bad? In Boruto quest we are being a multi tool/genjutsu, in Leaf ninja we're a ninjutsu/melee bulldozer, why not specialize her? whats the problem?
>>47621317I say we cheer for him since Naruto has Nori, Hinata will be neutral
>>47621317>>47621340Nope.Cheer for anyone who is fighting him.Especially Naruto.
>>47621309Yes, I'm saying learning the basics is a good idea. Puppets are useful, but my issue comes in investing that time to go from average to great.>>47621313But right now we want to learn to be good at swords, bows, Stellar, and puppets. That's not specialization. If we want to be even halfway competent at those things we need to make concessions in how much we know of others.>>47621329Because simply put there is a lot more potential in not being a one-trick pony. I think that we should work on puppets and Stellar personally, but I understand some people want to work swords so I'm willing to admit we can stand to learn some Kenjutsu.
>>47621283What if we use chakra threads strung between kunai to entangle a target, then ran Stellar release through them?Stellar Detcord.
>>47621380I think the method I was aiming for is we have a shadow/Stellar clone fight among the puppets while the real us is hidden away from sight ready to make a get away if needs be.
>>47621223I wasn't saying I was opposed, but it's pretty much guaranteed that well consistently choose not to put into investment into puppets, mostly because it'd suck so much at the start. (Also stellar release and also sword training for the speshul sord is already two shticks, a third would stretch us thin)
>>47621380>>47621390>>47621402>>47621316>>47621309>>47621283SUTANDODA A puppet used more like a very versatile weapon instead of a combatant itself would be awesome. Instead of carrying around weapons and ammo, the puppet does, instead of us attacking directly with a sword, we use the puppet's arms to fight for us.
>>47621340Cheer for him in the most transparently false way possible. Get his name wrong, shout terrible advice, etc.
Posting Puppets (imagine channeling our chakra trough this thing)
>>47621445Puppet doc ock would be kind of cool.
IM still a fan of the Puppet swarm technique myself, I feel it suits Tsuki, each crafted lovingly and high on aesthetics, like Sasori
Implying the Princess shouldn't have an escort
The Princess keeps her hands, soft and clean, not dirtying them with combat.
>>47621473>each crafted lovingly and high on aestheticsWhenever she has a stressful day, she just comes home and starts working on her puppets.
>>47621485An escort yes, but an entourage is too big
>>47621543Whens the puppet she makes that looks like her dead mom?
>>47621556Why not just use her mom's corpse?
Tsuki works hard, then returns home to lovingly craft her puppets and all their pieces, crafting each with love and care, engraving and working on each till the early morning. Carves her own little symbol into them, she has found something to calm herself and craft something beautiful. Slowly her collection grows from a single body guard type, a swarm of bunny's and an all manner of designs based on what she has seen in her life.
>>47621564Its probably not in any use able condition unless her dad preserved it.
>>47621619Bone puppetAnd I was joking.
>>47621619>Behind her Dad's fire place is her Mom floating in a giant tube Mr.Freeze styleThat would be a great reveal
>>47621628Well her dad is already probably a secret Nazi, so that wouldn't also be too unlikely.
Checking in after the fact. Let's see what happened while I wasn't looking.>>47619854Hooray! More bullying Itachi! This pleases me.>>47620344Did......did we just get a Rocket Propelled Grenade?
So reminder, Puppet practice, practrice, practice. Then Danzo will get us an awesome teacher
>>47621795>...did we just get a Rocket Propelled Grenade?Yes.
>>47621802I'd rather work on earning Kiba back and developing Stellar Release. If anything gets abandoned I'd easily say puppets get it first.
