Shinobi Quest #19This 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 and her teammates took some time to rest in the tourist village of Yugakure after their hard-fought success. After meeting Nori’s godfather, Jiraiya the Toad Sage, the teams took some time to dip in the hot springs. Afterward, Tsuki decided to hit up the shops in town, only to become separated from the group and have a frightful encounter with a man in a black cloak with red clouds.We rejoin the team as they arrive back in Konoha- a mission well done….
On the end of your second day after leaving Yugakure, you’ve finally made it back to Konoha, and you couldn’t be happier. This mission was fraught with danger, both before the mission even started, and after it had ended. In the days since the incident with the robed man, you’ve really begun to realize how dangerous this world can be.“Everyone, well done!” you hear Itachi announce upon reaching the front gate of the village. “We’ve completed our mission without incident! There were definitely some unexpected circumstances, but as Shinobi we must be prepared for these twists and snags wherever they appear.”“Yes!” Guy shouts in agreement. “As long as the fires of your youth burn brightly, you can overcome any adversity! As long as you work hard and believe in yourself!”You don’t find yourself particularly moved by the praise. Everyone sort mills about at the entrance for a while, before Itachi and Guy announce that they’ll be leaving to follow up with the Fourth. Everyone else acknowledges this, and wishes them luck.You… 1. Request to be present for the reports.2. Stay behind with the others for a while.3. Head home. You’ve never been so ready for your own bed.>Write-in
>>48016892>1. Request to be present for the reports.Also tell Itachi about that weird guy we met last time.
>>48016892>1. Request to be present for the reports.Tell Itachi about Hidan. And that he said Kakuzu.We don't know his name, but describe everything about him.
>>48016892>2. Stay behind with the others for a while.You, uh, messed up your trip and name wargle
>>48016892>>Write-in>Head home and talk to Danzo about what happened and ask for some training to prepare you for what is to come
>>48016933Shhhhhhh he tryina be ninja.
>>48016892>Tell Itachi about that scary insane guy
Oops thread ate my trip. Don't mind me~
>>48016892>1. Request to be present for the reports.
3 for the reports, and one that is essentially a 4th vote.Writing...
>>48016892>3. Head home. You’ve never been so ready for your own bed.Tell Danzo about Stabby McCrazyfuck.
Just make sure we tell Itachi about them before he's in the office. Don't wanna surprise him
“Itachi-sensei? Do you mind if I come to listen to the reports? I have some other things to say too; things the Fourth may be interested in as well.” you ask, drawing some looks from the others.“Is this about what happened in Yugakure?” he says, his concern bleeding through his voice.“Yes.” you reply simply.He nods, and beckons you to follow him- you wave goodbye to your friends and teammates, and they wave back.The two jonin are quick, but not so quick that you cannot keep a reasonable pace. You know where they’re going, anyway.You soon find yourself in the hallway outside the Hokage’s offices. Itachi explains to you that because of the circumstances surrounding the events you witnessed in what is now being called “The Land of Sound”, the Hokage has called a meeting including several of the town leaders. He asks that you recount your tale only when called upon.You, Guy and Itachi head into the Hokage’s office. Minato is seated behind his desk, with several other clan elders situated nearby. Kakashi is still absent, you notice, probably still in the Land of Waves. Panning around the room, you name off several of the clan heads present for the meeting; Hiashi Hyuga, Choza Akimichi, Shikaku Nara, Inoichi Yamanaka, Fugaku Uchiha, Shibi Aburame… and a few others you don’t recognize.The three of you walk in, and bow. “Thank you for coming so quickly, you two. Tsuki, your presence is unexpected, but not unwelcome. Itachi, please proceed with the report.” Minato says, very direct and businesslike, as opposed to his normal way of speaking.You…1. Do as sensei asks, and wait to be called upon to speak.2. Interject at key points with pertinent information.3. Spend the meeting scanning the crowd, instead. >Write-in
>>48017644>1. Do as sensei asks, and wait to be called upon to speak.
>>48017644>1. Do as sensei asks, and wait to be called upon to speak.Listen to how they react and then go over it later with Danzo to see why they reacted the way they did and how to use it to our advantage
>>48017644>1. Do as sensei asks, and wait to be called upon to speak.We'll get our turn.
>>48017680>>48017644Indeed>1. Do as sensei asks, and wait to be called upon to speak.However keep a light eye on the crowd, see how people react to things.
>>48017644>3. Spend the meeting scanning the crowd, instead.
Good little Tsuki waits her turn.Writing.
You stay quiet as Itachi goes over the mission- talking briefly about the disturbances that rumors had mentioned for weeks; when the description of the attack you witnessed begins, only a few of the elders present seem to react at first; however, when Orochimaru’s name comes up, the mood of the room immediately turns sour. Many seem worried; Shikaku and Hiashi are the only ones seemingly remaining calm. Fugaku Uchiha, though, seems particularly distressed. He’s scowling, and gripping the arms of his chair nearly hard enough to leave marks. He stays this way the rest of the meeting, seemingly not paying attention to anything else said.The overview of the mission itself is straightforward, talking about enemy compositions and the successful rescue of the Mayor. He does offer glowing praise for your plan to draw out the bandits, and even glosses over the embarrassing hit you took near the beginning. Many of those present are disturbed again when the identity of Yojimbo and his cohorts are revealed- nobody seemed to expect former samurai to be involved.The crowd murmurs a bit in discussion as Itachi finishes his report; however, he begins speaking again shortly afterward.“There was something else. Something strange happened to Tsuki here during our return trip through Yugakure. She wouldn’t tell me at the time, but she requested to come before the Fourth to explain.” He says.The council then turns to you- Fugaku Uchiha’s eyes seem to burn straight through you. Is something wrong with him?“Tell us then, Tsuki.” Minato says, calmly.You…1. Stick strictly with what happened and what you know.2. Make some guesses in logic that make sense to you.3. Play up the event.4. Call out Fugaku’s anger first.>Write-in
>>48018285>2. Make some guesses in logic that make sense to you.But ask Itachi about Fugaku's anger.
>>48018285>1. Stick strictly with what happened and what you know.Operate under the assumption others have knowledge that you don't.
>>48018285>1. Stick strictly with what happened and what you know.
>>48018285>4. Call out Fugaku’s anger first.>1. Stick strictly with what happened and what you know.
>>48018285>1. Stick strictly with what happened and what you know.Hold His gaze for a moment before turning to talkDescribe what they were wearing and their names, I believe given the events in the former Land of Rice fields this person I encountered fits the bill.They gave me the impression they were going to watch me and my team until we were out of the area and that they were going to engage us and possibly civilians were I to reveal them at the time.
>>48018382>>48018285This don't call out his anger, more stare the fucker down for a moment before turning and giving our report. Hidan and Kakuzu, something about Lord Jashin
>>48018321Save that for after, but totally agree>>48018330>>48018382These Lads get it
>>48018285>1. Stick strictly with what happened and what you know.Then after you tell that these are conjecture2. Make some guesses in logic that make sense to you.
Sticking to what we know. Maybe stare down Fugaku a little.Writing.
>>48018536>Maybe stare down Fugaku a little.>a little>not a lot
>>48018554There are other people in the room, Anon. Can't start a scene.yet
The Red Clouds are coming, remember to make sure we say their names and fashion sense. How they were unafraid to engage and kill and ninja...and Hidan was defiantly not being subtle, so looks like a classic case of intimidation.
>>48018603>Can't start a scene.I'm not saying we should make a scene.Just stare his ass down.
>>48018661don't do it to much...he does have a god damn sharingan
>>48018673What's he gonna do?Start a scene in front of the fucking Hokage and his own son?
>>48018718The Uchiha are a sneaky bunch.
>>48018673Got damn eye-niggers. Should have purged them all back in '73... *grumble grumble*
>>48018727Why again are we acting hostile?
>>48018727In front of his own son?>>48018756We're not acting hostile. Just staring his cunt ass down.
>>48018763Okay, why are we staring at anybody?
>>48018814'Cause he's staring at us.Didn't you read the previous posts by Wargle?
>>48018831Yeah, there's the disconnect sorry. Why are we staring back at somebody who's not our peer?
>>48018873>Why are we staring back at somebody who's not our peer?'Cause he's being an asshole.So we're having a stare down.
>>48018887Oh, I like you.
>>48018285>Fugaku Uchiha, though, seems particularly distressed. He’s scowling, and gripping the arms of his chair nearly hard enough to leave marks. He stays this way the rest of the meeting, seemingly not paying attention to anything else said.>>48018661>>48018673>>48018718>>48018727>>48018737>>48018763>>48018814>>48018831>>48018887The man is having a freak out over the bloodline stealing monster and you lot want to glare at him.> Gee guys, he's probably terrified for his 12 year old son with magic easily stolen eyeballs. What a dickhead, better give the stink eye!
>>48019057>over the bloodline stealing monsterThe way he's looking at Tsuki makes it seem like he thinks she's involved or for some reason dislikes her quite a bit.So, until it's cleared up: He's an asshole getting a stare down.
>>48019057>The council then turns to you- Fugaku Uchiha’s eyes seem to burn straight through you. Is something wrong with him?Goddamn sharigook needs to chill out and not hate stare at a 12 year old girl.
>>48019057But he's clearly staring at you very angrily. A little bit of the stink eye wouldn't hurt.
You gives a rough overview of the earlier part of the day, and meeting Jiraiya. Minato’s hardened expression softens at the tales of his teacher’s antics. “As I ran down the alley, I ran into a man. He was tall, wearing a dark robe with little red clouds. He had greyish hair and ruby-red eyes- they might have been pretty if they weren’t so terrifying. He seemed utterly insane, yelling and screaming like a madman, threatening to hurt or kill me. He kept mentioning a Lord Jashin- took it very seriously, too. He also said he had a partner of sorts, a man he called Kakuzu, although the man never appeared.” you report, reliving the experience.“He said he’d be watching me. That he’d kill me and sacrifice me to his god. I believe he was, too, at least for a while. I didn’t feel the need to get Itachi-sensei involved at the time- we still had our mission’s success to report, and I didn’t wish to risk having civilians caught in the crossfire.” you finish.“Black Robe? Red Clouds? If it’s who I think it is- this could even more trouble. And the proximity to Orochimaru’s conquests is too much to be mere coincidence…” Minato muses. That name again; Orochimaru. At it’s mere mention, Fugaku again tenses up. You look right at him- his fidgeting clear to nearly everyone in the room.He won’t activate his eyes, not here. They’d be on him in a second. So you keep the gaze. And keep it. And keep it. Eventually, he stands.“Fugaku?” Minato says, turning to the elder Uchiha.“I’ve heard enough. That monster still runs loose, and you parade the progeny of his former comrades in arms in front of me like a circus. I will not simply stay here and be insulted like this! After all the things we’ve done for this village…” Fugaku rants.
>>48019075>>48019098>>48019103Fugaku has two modes.Smug and Angry.Why is the Moon Princess trying to give then angry when we could be giving the Smug? We're much better at being haughty.
“Father, enough.” Itachi commands.“You don’t run the house yet, child. I will never understand why you choose to follow this weekling, Itachi. Did Shisui teach you nothing? The pain caused upon our clan in the name of “peace”? I will not sit here while my son has Danzo’s puppet dancing at my son’s side. It’s a disgrace, Minato. You…1. Let Fugaku keep going.2. Interject. 3 Mention the clan’s great records until Minato’s tenure as hokage.4. Antagonize him further.
>>48019150>1. Let Fugaku keep going.sympathy gone. Give him more rope to hang himself with.
>>48019150>2. InterjectAnd you disgrace yourself and clan by acting this way.
>>48019150>4. Antagonize him further.Make him cause a blunder by playing stupid about Danzo
>>48019150>3 Mention the clan’s great records until Minato’s tenure as hokage.I like this option.
>>48019150>1. Let Fugaku keep going.
>>48019150>3 Mention the clan’s great records until Minato’s tenure as hokage.Own this man in the best way. The technically correct way.
>>48019150>3 Mention the clan’s great records until Minato’s tenure as hokage.As in "Great" records?If not then>1. Let Fugaku keep going.
>>48019150>1. Let Fugaku keep going.>2. Interject. Extend an olive branch, Be the bigger woman. "I'm my own woman Fugaku."
>>480191502. Interject. 3 Mention the clan’s great records until Minato’s tenure as hokage.
>>48019150>3 Mention the clan’s great records until Minato’s tenure as hokage.>4. Antagonize him further.Mention the clan's great records, then say: "Although that might be more your fault than his."
>>48019150>2. Interject. >3 Mention the clan’s great records until Minato’s tenure as hokage.
>>48019150>3 Mention the clan’s great records until Minato’s tenure as hokage."Well if I'm responsible for whatever it is my parents had to do with Orochimaru, then by that logic you should be responsible for the sins YOUR predecessors committed."
>>48019150>2. "Forgive me my ignorance, my lord, but who is Orochimaru?"
>>48019150You gonna call the vote and start writing at some point?
>>480191503 Mention the clan’s great records until Minato’s tenure as hokage.
Mixture of mainly 3 with some 2 and 4.Bitch mode, activate!
>>48019452>Bitch mode, activate!Shade Mode, more like.
>>48019452Well really the fuck is Fugaku's problem with Tsuki?
>>48019491He sees us as Danzo's puppet.
>>48019491He says so in the previous post.>>48019150>my son has Danzo’s puppet dancing at my son’s sideThat, and he's just generally a shit.Not evil, but a total douche for sure.
>>48019508He can puppet our dick.
>>48019452Tsuki's angry, She gets colder and bitchier when she's angry.
>>48019508So we're getting mad because he thinks that we might be subverted by a guy who is known for subversion, and is rude.
>>48019546He's also saying some stupid shit.
>>48019546He also implied that our mom was Orochi's buddy.
>>48019546>>48019557Stupid and probably traitorous/seditious shit.>>48019560Father, I think, actually.
>>48019560There is probably truth to that I'd wager. I guess Mom and Dad were friends with Orochi at one time.
Sauce (this universe anyway) and Blindy are okay though
>>48019582I wouldn't be surprised if her dad built him a snake launcher or something.We need to get a snake launcher.
>>48019633Sasuke and Itachi are cool.There are probably others that are cool, too.But Fugaku a fuccboi.
So the head of the police is just saying that because parents were friendly with a Sannin and have taken in Danzo Tsuki, a child, must be evil? Without talking to her at all? Wow great detective work.
>>48019683And he also said that Itachi follows a weakling, i.e. Minato.And he said it while MINATO IS RIGHT THERE IN THE SAME ROOM AS THEM!
>>48019683You don't have to be evil to kill off everyone else in your clan except your little brother.
>>48019452Fuck. This is not becoming of an aristocrat, guys. We should be asking who Orochimaru is, what our father did with him, and apologizing for any mistakes made. Seriously, has it not been made clear that our dad is a shady dude who may have done some fucked up shit in the past? We don't even know what is triggering this outburst and we're snapping at him. We're supposed to be better than this. Smarter and more proactive, if not kinder.
>>48019700Uchiha clan purge when?
>>48019712Fuck off anon, talk shit about daddy Danzo get hit
>>48019712I agree, but anon had voted. Giving shit pull is too strong it seems.
>>48019700The old bastard has balls, gotta give him that at least. And Wargle!Minato hasn't really impressed me with his abilities. I'm sure that he could kick Fugaku's ass in a fight, but Fugaku has a fancy clan name and money and a crap-ton of not-dead Uchiha.
>>48019712>>48019734He'd probably just say that we're faking ignorance and would give us more shit.So either way, he's still gonna be an asshole.
>>48019712Why should Tsuki apologize for something she didn't do? Fuckgagu can fuck right off.
>>48019683>>48019700Fugaku was never the sharpest kunai in the pouch.>>48019704He was 13 with PTSD and thoroughly manipulated.>>48019712We are 12. He's a full grown adult bitching about his grievances in front of all of the other Clan leaders and his military dictator.We have every right to put him in his place.
>>48019742>And Wargle!Minato hasn't really impressed me with his abilities.He hasn't had anything to do right now.>>48019756>Fugaku was never the sharpest kunai in the pouch.Clearly.
>>48019756But how did he become Clan Head then?
>>48019753At least that way we'd still have our dignity. Responding to such a flagrant remark should be below us.
>>48019742but Minato has a fancy hat!
>>48019779Inheritance.>>48019782Meh. Fuck him
You start to laugh. It’s pathetic. You really can’t help it.“Ohohohohohohoho!~ You have some nerve, talking about my father like that. Especially considering your clan’s history? Alas, the mighty Uchiha. Founders so integral to our village’s founding that your most famous member is a traitor. The clan who sees itself as superior in it’s informal exile. And you, the man leaning on the younger generations to bring honor back to your family. But you accuse my father, who works tirelessly to contribute the best way he’s able to this village, of being in league with some monster?” “You know nothing child! After what those two men did to our clan….. And you harbor one in your own home! As some sort of privileged guest no less! Then sure enough the other rises from the shadows, and who should be there to witness it but you!” Fugaku says, practically spitting the words.Minato slams his hands on the desk-“ENOUGH.”A wave of energy pulses through the room, and everyone stops.“Fourth, I..” Fugaku starts.“You’ve made your opinions clear, Fugaku. Time and time again. I understand you did not approve of how I chose to deal with that situation, but that was a long time ago. I assured you then, and I assure you now, it has been taken care of. Leave my sight. Don’t come before me again until you’re ready to work towards a future for our people. Together.” Minato says, with as forceful of a command as you’ve ever heard him say.Fugaku rises, and storms out.The other clan leaders murmur to themselves….“Tsuki Norihime.” The Fourth Hokage says, his piercing blue eyes almost glowing in the dim light of the room.You…1. Address the Hokage with respect.2. Say Fugaku deserved it3. Grumble and pout4. Stay silent.>Write-in
>>48019800>1. Address the Hokage with respect.
>>48019800>1. Address the Hokage with respect.Bow deeply.
>>48019800>1. Address the Hokage with respect."I apologize for my outburst."
>>48019800>3. Grumble and poutDon't toady to him, we've expressed ourselves.
>>48019800>1. Address the Hokage with respect.>Write-in."My pride and anger overwhelmed me. I apologize for making a scene."
>>48019800>1. Address the Hokage with respect.Pls no telestab
>>48019800>1. Address the Hokage with respect.Bow deeply, apologize for the outburst.
>>48019800>4 Reply to the Hokage with a healthy dose of "shit I may have gone too far">>48019789True. I had forgotten about the fancy hat. But don't all Kage get a fancy hat like that?
>>48019831>>48019800Bow so low we break our back if need be.
>>48019800>>48019866>1. Address the Hokage with respect.Oops...I may have got a little to into it again...
>>48019800>1. Address the Hokage with respect.But don't apologize. Don't even argue. Fugaku insulted our family, called our integrity into question, and accused us and our house of aiding an enemy of the Land of Fire. He was in the wrong, and we were right to say sonething, because based on the fact that he didn't jump in sooner, it seems clear that Minato wouldn't have done much of anything had we stayed quiet.Like I said, though, be polite and respectful. He is still the Hokage. No apologizes, though.
>>48019926I agree with this
Respect the hat, Tsuki. Respect it.Writing.
>>48019800>Realize that our comment about the Uchiha could have hurt Itachi's feelings.Apologize to Itachi.
>>48019976Later when we can talk to him alone. Also ask what the hell his dad is so mad at.
>>48019996"I was out of line sensei, but your father is a steaming turd-blossom. No offense."
Naw he called us Danzo's puppet...I mean he's right..but he just made a fool of himself and now no one will believe him
>>48020031>Implying Danzo and ROOT won't be our puppets.Please anon.
>>48020019"Yeah, I know. Sometimes I wish I could just... I dunno. Kill them all. Except for Sasuke, of course. I have to let him become a raging douche. I'm a great brother like that, right?"
>>48020046first we have to play the part then take over. But I think this could be interesting...I mean what if they ask us to become a spy/informant on Danzo just as we are to Danzo and the Hokage....we're a god damn double agent...but on which side? We're pulling an Itachi.
>>48020054"Ever stand over your father's bed holding a kunai? Just staring. Knowing you could end all of these egotistical hatemongers? Burn it all to the ground?!""uhhhh. No sensei.... Not really. That might just be a 'you' thing""huh..... "
>>48020078More like we just influence Danzo with our actions and charisma to work to our goals instead of his. Inspire loyalty to the extreme. Nothing less for a woman of our position.
You bow. Lower than you’ve ever bowed to anyone.“My Hokage.” is all you say, staring at the floor of the office.You definitely overdid it. You just picked a fight with your Sensei’s father- and the head of the most powerful clans in Konoha. Father wouldn’t mind- the Uchiha didn’t buy from us anyway. Danzo would probably approve of your putting the hateful old man in his place.But…. here? In front of the Hokage and the other village leaders?You hold the bow even longer. Eventually the pressure in the room seems to dissipate. “Rise, Tsuki.” Minato says, quietly now.You rise, and meet his gaze. He looks tired. “You may not know this, Tsuki, but during the last war, I won a battle against a large force of enemy shinobi. One hundred of them, if estimates are to believed. By myself.” He says, looking at nobody in particular.“Not for glory. Honor. Accolades. Money. I did it because it needed to be done to protect my home. My victory there was what led to me becoming Hokage- according to the Third, I was the only choice. I didn’t really want the position, but I’ve grown since then. The position needed me. There was one other put forward- Orochimaru. A legend- but the Third didn’t trust him, and for good reason. He vanished one night, and shortly there after we discovered some of his horrific experiments. Things that led to the monsters you witnessed, I’d wager.” He stands, and walk over to you.“Tsuki Norihime. I ask you now, will you do whatever is necessary to protect our village from monsters like Orochimaru?”1. Yes2. Unsure3. Dodge the question
>>48020181>1. YesAfter the shit we saw? We don't want that happening to our village do we?
>>48020181>1. YesWere not lying, just not saying what we think protecting the village means
>>48020181>1. YesThe Norihime are strong!
>>480201811. Yes"The village, and the people I love within its walls are my greatest concern. I know it may seem to be the desires of a foolish girl, but I will do everything and anything in my power to protect it. If that means slaying a hundred men, or sacrificing myself like Ebisu. I will do it, without hesitation. I will do it without remorse."
>>48020181>1. YesAnything. Even use the comfy chairs. Ohohohohohohohoho.
>>48020181>1. Yes"whatever is necessary" can be quite interesting after all...
>>48020231DON'T ANY OF YOU BE FORGETTING THE TRUE HERO OF THIS STORY
>>48020181>1. Absolutely. I understand the part he played in my birth, but that means nothing if he's a threat to my home.
>>48020231Why we gotta ruin things with a speech. Guy just wants a yes or no.
>>48020181>YesI already agreed to this when I got this headband
>>48020231No, please.It sounds too try-hard, even though I agree with the idea.The phrasing is shit.
>>480203061am brings out my shit side. I'll go into a corner of shame.
>>48020231No to the speech. Just a simple yes.
Tsuki will do whatever is necessary.Writing.
>>48020328You had a good idea there, but the phrasing is just trying way too hard.Don't be ashamed. Just try to build better sentences.
>>48020376Don't do the speech, though.Just a simple yes or a "I already agreed to this when I got the headband." thing.
>>48020379Again. The 1am after rolling sushi for 9 hours leaves a lot of rambling in my head. I do appreciate how nice /tg/ tends to be in general though.
>>48020391Yeah. I like that better. I hold by the Ebisu tribute though. At least personally.
>>48020301>>48020181This, its simple and good
>>48020328It was poetic. A little anime; a little much. But poetic. I'm inspired to sudoku like Ebisu to protect my students
>>48020420>after rolling sushi for 9 hoursIs that a fun job?
“Yes, my Hokage. I’m sorry if my dedication was ever in doubt-” “It wasn’t, Tsuki. The other clan heads should see what I already know. You will become a wonderful shinobi of the Leaf.” he cuts you off, before ending with a chuckle.“You and Itachi are dismissed. Guy, pick your jaw up off the floor- I just had it cleaned.” Minato says, before returning to his desk. You and Itachi both bow, and exit the office.You both walk in silence for a while, not saying anything to one another.You hope you didn’t hurt his feelings. He said that was estranged from his father, but it’s still his dad. Sasuke, too. Both of them have shown you nothing but respect, even if the younger Uchiha is a bit smug for his own good.You find yourself at the top of Hokage Mountain again. Itachi flops down, laying on the grass. He hasn’t said a word this whole time- now he’s just staring upwards, toward the evening sky.You…1. Apologize for insulting the Uchiha.2. Apologize for insulting his father.3. Apologize for causing a scene.4. Say something else. (What?)>write-in
>>48020508>3. Apologize for causing a scene.Seems to be what he would care about most
>>48020468I love it. My boss is a cranky racist Korean dude, but we talk dragon ball Z and Starcraft. I have been working at it for about a year now, and I am finally starting to feel really confident in myself. I am no where near a sushi chef yet though.
>>48020508>1. Apologize for insulting the Uchiha.>3. Apologize for causing a scene.>Write-in."I will not apologize for insulting your father, however. He may have his reasons for disliking my father, but he was an ass about it."

>>48020508>1. Apologize for insulting the Uchiha.>3. Apologize for causing a scene.Ask why his father disliked our family as much as he does?
>>48020508>3. Apologize for causing a scene.His dad's still a fucking dick though.
>>48020461I'm pretty sure that if we sudoku we'd be taking out the students too.>>480205081. Apologize for insulting the Uchiha3. Apologize for causing a scene.> Ur dad a shit tho> Replace him soon plz

>>48020525Sounds awesome though.Keep it up, Richie!
>>48020508>3. Apologize for causing a scene."I was out of line. If you want me to train with Guy Sensei for a week, I would understand." so we can see our husbando?

>3. Apologize for causing a scene.Because we don't want it too reflect badly on him>1. Apologize for insulting the Uchiha.Between you and Sasuke, your finding a new and better way. Showing the world the Uchiha are good people and can work for a better village together
>>48020572Haki is husbando
>>48020586Haki don't think I've heard of him. He related to Haku?
>>48020572>>48020586>>48020606Don't even start.I'll get out the spray bottle.Don't think I won't.
>>48020606Ya he's his twin brother funny enough you never see them in the same room though
1 & 3Writing.
>>48020606is's his non-canon tombay sister, i think..
>>48020508>>48020580This but maybe lighten the mood. with something like "I really do need to stop running my mouth so much, im sorry Sensei"
>>48020572>>48020586>>48020606Too early for this.
>>48020545Shhh shhhhhh shhhh if it worked out for Saint Ebisu, it will surely go well for us. If not, we will join him in Ninja Valhalla for our selflessness. ...that's how the ninja religion works, right?>>48020508>3. Apologize for causing a scene.This encompasses all the rest, and honestly, everything else was pretty dang true.
>>48020586>>48020606Git ur gosh durn One Piece out of here
>>48020629>>48020616I was kidding. I have a husbando in mind right now, but i wont start pushing on him until the right time.
>>48020672Wait this isn't a one piece quest?
“I’m sorry.” Itachi says.Wait, what? You were just about to….“N-no sensei! I went too far- you and Sasuke have been great to me, and I should’ve never said those things in front of the Hokage and the other elders-”Itachi laughs.“You wouldn’t have said anything if my father had not kicked that nest of curls. He’s a bitter man, trying to provide for and advance a bitter clan. Many of us younger generation of Uchiha are trying to leave it behind us- my brother and I, and before us, my cousin Shisui. Many in the village don’t trust us, but Father and the others think fear is the way to respect- they’re wrong. Fear is what got them where there are now. It’s why our ancestor Madara abandoned us. So I reject it. All of it. Shisui taught me that. Fear and hate only cause more problems, in the end. It’s not just an Uchiha problem, either- our entire shinobi world is plagued by it. It perpetuates our petty struggles and pointless wars.” “I’m rambling, though.” he says. “Don’t apologize for standing up to my father. The Tsuki here-” He pokes you gently in the chest, where your heart is.“Is just as important as the Tsuki up here-”He pokes in the forehead. Again. He smiles.Your face goes bright scarlet. You cannot handle this.....Deep breathes, Tsuki. Deep breaths….You…1. Ask him about Danzo2. Ask him about Orochimaru3. Ask him about Shisui4. Ask him about himself.>Write-inPick only one.
>>48020809>1. Ask him about Danzo
>>48020809>2. Ask him about Orochimaru
>>48020809>1. Ask him about Danzo>2. Ask him about Orochimaru
>>48020830See>>48020809>Pick only one.
>>48020809>2. Ask him about OrochimaruIs he really as bad as they say? He did try to help my mother and was trained by the third.
>>48020809>1. Ask him about DanzoWell he is living in my home I guess I should know about him...for another persons perspective.
>>48020809Why does every picture make Itachi look like a woman
>>48020852Why would we ever tell anyone that we know that anon
>>48020809>1Better understand the Devil under your own roof
>>480208091. Ask him about DanzoWe need to know about the man. It would be irresponsible not to know as much as we can about him, with the amount of trust we place in him.
>>48020809>4. Ask him about himself.TEACHER STUDENT FORBIDDEN LOVE GO!
>>48020809>1. Ask him about DanzoWe can ask Danzo on Orochimaru, and it'd be nice to get an outside view.
>>48020891I SUPPORT THIS SHIP SO HARD>>48020809I have to say, in light of these accusations, it'd be good to >1. Ask about OrochimaruTo know what we're being accused of fraternizing with.
>>480208092. Ask him about Orochimaru
>ITT we make secret second dad dissapoint.
>>48020952I know anon we need to still love him all the same no matter what this lying Uchiha tells us
>>48020809>2. Ask him about OrochimaruAsking about Danzo is dangerous, we might let it slip that we know more than we should.
>>48020952Nigga we put Fucboigu on top of our shit list, dude's gonna be proud as fuck that we trolled him.
>>48020809>3. Ask him about ShisuiWho is this mysterious Shisui you speak of? Tell me all of his secrets.
>>480208091. Ask him about Danzo
Big old vote, but Danzo wins out.Writing.
>>48021039Finally, we can learn of secret second dad's career as a shinobi basketball allstar.
“Sensei. I… have a question.” you start, unsure how to proceed.“Go ahead, Tsuki. I’ll answer to the best of my ability.” he encourages.“Well, your father really hates Danzo. He openly admits many in town don’t trust him. Why? He’s never been anything but loyal and genuine with me….” you ask, still unsure of the question.“That’s a bit of a tough question, and it goes far beyond either you or I. I know Danzo has done many questionable things. He worked with Orochimaru for many years, building spy networks and running covert operations, researching strange and horrifying things. But according to him, it was all for the Leaf. He isn’t lying, either.” he says, tapping his temple.“These would detect it in a heartbeat. He truly believes that everything he does is for the benefit of the leaf- and it’s hard to argue with his successes. He served as the main advisor for the Third for many years, and headed his own division of ANBU, which he called ROOT. The issue was, ROOT was loyal only to him- not to the leaf. This inevitably lead to conflict as Danzo began to disagree with the route the Third was taking in international politics. He envied him greatly, I believe.”“He tried to make a power play- and failed. He was stopped by Shisui, in the end. He had been doing experiments using Sharingan, to increase his own personal power. It’s not known how many Uchiha he killed for his macabre collection, but when his plots were exposed, the town rejected him wholesale. The odd thing was he told everything to the Fourth after his encounter with Shisui, freely admitting to his crimes. My father demanded him executed- Shisui left the Village in protest, and the Fourth pardoned him. It was shortly after this that he formally entered your father’s “service”, although they had known each other for many years before this.”
>>48021283young dazno was damn fine.
As you ponder this information, Itachi stands up.“Not for me to badmouth him, though. If he had a hand in raising you, he obviously instilled some good values- and we’ve seen nothing of him since I’ve run ANBU. Even if Father won’t, I do believe that he may be a changed man.” He laughs again.“I didn’t mean to end on such a dour conversation, Tsuki. You should probably get home. I have a feeling I’ll be leaving soon- the Fourth will have me join or work with Jiraiya to gather information on Orochimaru, I’d wager. I’d like to work on a training plan for my favorite ladies before I go. Meet me tomorrow at noon, let’s say by the memorial park. I hear Ebisu’s monument is finished- I thought you might want to take a look. Have a good night, Tsuki.” he says, walking down the path away from the mountain.You have a lot to think about- a common theme among these busy months as shinobi. You also have some questions that only Danzo can answer….
And we'll be ending it here- gotta sleep sometime boys.@WargleQM for headpokesNext thread will be Friday.Post thread begins now!
>>48021322Is Shisui a member of the Akatsuki?
What did the other clan head think of our little snap back with Uchidouche any patucularly intresting or funny responces?Why was Guy's jaw on the floor?So...Shisui left the village...like...he ain't dead to our understanding?
>>48021322Damn you for ending here. Nah thanks for running mate!
>>48021322Goodnight and thanks for running.
>>48021301>Shisui used his Sharingan on Danzo instead and probably left to infiltrate Akatsuki>Danzo's fall from grace pacified WORST UCHIHA, and likely many of the clan's hotheads>The Uchiha are still by and large a shitWell then, it appears that situation's still rather knackered.
>>48021343It's fine, we'll get secret second dad to teach us how to harvest eyes and finish the job for him.
>>48021368If we murder all the Uchiha then we never have to worry about that circle of hate bullshit
>>48021326Akatsuki's definitely got some differences, but I wouldn't get ahead of yourselves just yet.>>48021334Some, like Choza, thought it was hilarious. People like Hiashi thought it was a bit much, though he definitely deserved itOthers thought you were disrespectful to an elder.Guy was shocked by how outspoken you were- he's never seen you like this before.Last time anyone saw Shisui, he was definitely alive.
>>48021381exactly! besides, he has presumably 10 eyes on his arm, he can part with one or two to give us a jumpstart.
>>48021410Tsuki seems to be getting admirersany of them girls?
>>48021438The closest were getting to yuri in this quest is Haku anon
>>48021438Yuri is shit.
>>48021410Did Orochimaru help make Tsuki's release?And were/are Orochimaru and Yoru Norihime friends?
>>48021468Yoru really doesn't have "friends" in the normal sense. Neither does Orochimaru.
>>48021410>disrespectful to an elder>when said elder basically accuses your family of treasonOld man needed to put up or shut up. It's a sad day for the Leaf when a twelve year-old girl has more balls than its entire council of elders put together.
>>48021452>>48021459I don't really have a horse in the shipping race. Just wanted to see how big the field is for the Tsuki bowlTsukiXUnrequited crush on Itachi seems cute I guess
>>48021487What about research partners?And Orochimaru totally helped make her release, right?
>>48021368>>48021381>>48021416what if we took Neji's eyes then with secret second dad's help implanted a sharingan over the vulnerable spot? Damn, Orochi would probably be down to try it. If only he was our secret second dad... implying Orochimaru didn't just murder Danzo and take his place as the ultimate cover in this universe.
who needs magic eyes?Tsuki will gain the ultimate counter to them. post time skip chest beefers
>>48021510I would have thought with our stellar release, we would create a shining light that would render eye-based techniques useless.
>>48021510Im telling you man, we honeypot neji hard then when he falls for us we go on a mission with him, arrange an "accident" and voila, those peepers are as good as ours.
>>48021498>Orochimaru goes into deep cover as a disgraced black-ops master>Decides to play to type and mentor a promising young student>Gets so into his role he actually starts to find it enjoyable>Loses interest in being an evil, manipulative fucktrumpet
>>48021531That would be one hell of a tweest.
>>48021530I'm sure people would totally not notice that Neji's eyes are missing.
>>48021530We could anon shit like that happens all the time>>48021546We couldn't recover the body
>>48021526your're not thinking shounen or chuuni enough! hypnotic bursts of light to aid genjutsu! Laser vomit, a la Oozaru! Flashing neon signs to announce our glorious entrance upon the field of battle ohohohoho~
>>48021546That's why we honepot him! so when he feels the end is near, he GIVES them to us.
good thread guys, thanks for running wargle.
Always enjoy *reading* these quests.I have still yet to arrive in time to actually participate! (slightly annoyed)Thanks nonetheless, Wargle. Looking forward to #20.
>>48021496Who ever said it was unrequited, anon? Itachi totally wants to poke Tsuki's forehead.
We are never gonna take any eyes especially form Neji (he deserves better) or Best Uchiha (likewise), nor will we get them implant, far to ghastlyI hope Hiashi's rep of us was not to soured, I want old Hyuga to like us
>>48022006Well, who knows what's going to happen when the canon Chunin exams roll around. Could be the case that Itachi dies fighting Orochimaru, leaving an eye each to Sasuke and Tsuki, and Tsuki gets a promotion to Chunin so the village's jonin senseis will stop dying
>>48022367>dat spoileranon pls, no that'll only happen if we roll consecutive 1's. Ebisu 2.0 Shinobi Boogaloo
So if Itachi is gonna be too busy to teach us, who's gonna e his substitute?Anko for Team Mega Milk?
>>48023097 Anko is good. Personally I'd prefer Genma, what with him being on the same genin-team as Ebisu and Guy.
>>48023097>>48023122We'll just be doing training sessions on our own.Hopefully we can get Tenten to teach us Taijutsu and Kenjutsu, though.
>>48026922>We'll just be doing training sessions on our own.>Hopefully we can get Tenten to teach us Taijutsu and Kenjutsu, though.yeah, sounds good -- got me thinking ....If this comes to a vote later on, here're my proposals (in order of priority):1. Train with Danzo *tied w/* TaijustsuKenjutsu-Train with Tenten3. Team-Train with Nori & Hinata4. Solo-Train
>>48027254We should focus on our strengths now like intelligence, agility and hand seals.We have to beat Shika at shoji!
>>48027572>We should focus on our strengths now like intelligence, agility and hand seals.>We have to beat Shika at shoji!I imagine *hint hint* training w/ Danzo would entail training up our hand seals, as a byproduct of training various jutsu with him. Then again we could just spend a simple 15 minutes a day, solo-training hand seals -- that's all it takes really: building muscle (& chakra-molding) memory through practise.Similairly I can imagine *hint hint* Danzo posing various riddles/mental-tests to us; though they'll most likely remain limited to shinobi-related topics. Perhaps we could spend time with Father for intelligence development -- maybe we could play a game of shoji against him! .. or simply assisting in his work (considering it's stuff on the forefront of design and engineering, in this setting, it'll probably double as an INT-boost).Which reminds me, when we get the chance we gotta talk to daddyo about his business dealings. Just getting his side of the story would be enough. For agility: I'd say team-training w/ Nori & Hinata (Jyuuken being an Agility-Perception based fightan-style). It also gives us a chance to develop our team co-ordination gotta get in on those team-ultis bruh
>>48027572Or work on buffing our weaknesses.
>>48030138We should focus on what build were going to be and get the reat of the skills up to average
>>48030195I agree, but I don't want to have our weakest skill(s) be less than 2 or 2.5 either.
>>48030138>>48030195>>48030548It makes sense to inoculate our liabilities.Quite a shame that a shinobi of the leaf got OHKO'd by a mook. FIREY training with Guy & Lee when?
>>48030745At some point, I hope.And it wasn't a OHKO. It was a slap out fo nowhere that she wasn't expecting.Only got knocked down for half a minute. Or ten seconds.
>>48030745>>48030763It was a bad roll
Rolled 1 (1d001)>>48031098
