Shinobi Quest #25This 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 the team were attacked by strange wooden men deep within the ruins, prompting the them to flee as fast as possible. While fleeing, the team came across a strange lump, which upon further inspection, was hollow. After alerting it’s occupant, Kurotsuchi, about the coming horde, the shinobi and Dr. Lemeza continued to flee as fast as possible through unfamiliar terrain, unfortunately slowed down by Lemeza, who was adamant about carrying some box with him from the ruin’s depths.After cutting a bridge as a last ditch attempt to slow the creatures down, the group of six reached the outside, Tsuki never being more grateful to be in the sweltering desert heat. Unfortunately the victory was short lived, with the Akatsuki members Kisame Hoshigaki and the man presumed to be Shisui Uchiha emerging from the ruins via some odd technique of Kisame’s.Though Tsuki had been successful in convincing Itachi not to engage with the rogue Shinobi before, the conflict was beginning to look unavailable….
Shisui speaks.“Hello again, Itachi. I’m upset you didn’t come see me, but, considering the circumstances, I’ll forgive you. This world certainly does like to bring us together, doesn’t it? You’re still loyal to the Leaf, as I figured you would be.”“Shisui. I don’t know why you’re here, but you don’t need to involve any of them.” Itachi spits back at the robed man.“I didn’t know you thought so little of me, Itachi. Attacking women and children? I’d truly become what the Leaf thinks of us, then, wouldn’t I? Hah!” Shisui leers back at your sensei.“We’re here on business, nothing more. Although….” the robed man continues, pulling back his hood. Uchiha hair and face, same color of eye- except for one. His right eye, which contained a sharingan of an odd shape- and it was active, while his other one was not. A wicked scar covered that same eye.“My dear cousin, the people of Konoha consider us monsters. Look what they did to me! I served them faithfully, but yet in the end, I was pawn to be thrown aside!”“Until you see this truth, you will be nothing but a pawn as well. I had hoped growing older would have opened your eyes- but it seems you have retained your ideals…..""...Maybe I should teach you another lesson? It will be just like old times, Itachi. I’d like to see how much you’ve learned….."
Yes! time for Ohohoho~!
The tension between the two men is palpable, but neither of them has moved. Shisui’s cohort, Kisame, has not drawn his weapon; he seems content to stand with his arms crossed behind him. He’s not going to interfere?The fishy Akatsuki member catches you looking at him-“Don’t worry, Konoha brat. If I wanted you dead, you’d be dead already. You and all your little friends. Hahahaha! Though I’m sure at least one of you might sate Samehada….” he says, his sharp teeth producing a menacing grin.“Kisame.” Shisui says, his gaze towards Itachi unbroken.“Yeah, yeah. I’ll just go bake in the sun. I hate it here, Shisui.” he complains.His vision turns back to you again, and his toothy smile returns.“You don’t know just how lucky you are.”You believe him. For the time being it seems he won’t be involved….But that leaves Shisui. Dare you try to interfere in this clan feud?You…1. Don’t interfere. These men won’t be swayed by words.2. Try to appeal to Itachi once more.3. Try to appeal to Shisui. Surely this can wait?4. Try something else. (What?)>Write-in
>>48525491>1. Don’t interfere. These men won’t be swayed by words.
>>48525491>2. Try to appeal to Itachi once more.
>>48525491>4. Nope. I'm not losing another sensei to self-righteous stupidity, whether his own or an enemy's. A pleasure, Shisui, Kisame, but we'll be going now.
>>48525491>1. Don’t interfere. These men won’t be swayed by words.>>Write-inSecure our surroundings aside from the current antagonist, check in on our Doctor. Is he ok after getting out of the ruins?
Looks like we aren't interfering. Writing.
>>48525642>No, Tsuki, I have to fight him.>Oh? And what's so important about fighting him?>We were friends once...and now he's...like this. If I can put him to res->Nope.>But Tsuki->No. That's stupid. You're being stupid. Stop being stupid sensei. You have three genin and you've only been available as our jonin trainer for half that time. We're not losing another sensei like this. We're leaving, and that's final.>Bu->THAT'S FINAL!
>>48525735>Shisui just makes the whipping noise at Itachi the whole time
>>48525781>Kisame is just laughing.
>>48525798And Akatsuki gets a recording of that spread around the ninja world.
>>48525822Itachi gets the highest killcount ever, people keep laughing when they recognize him.
>>48525822>>48525798>>48525781We save the sensei only for him to commit sudoku from the embarrassment
>>48525798>Akatuski brings us in as a hard counter for Itachi
>>48525491>1. Don’t interfere. These men won’t be swayed by words.Create a Clone and send it scouting around for a way home/back to a safe zone
Do decide not to try talking them down. You were able to talk sensei down before…. But this is different. You doubt Shisui would listen to you, anyway. Your eyes dart around to your surroundings- best to be aware of what’s around you if this is going to happen. First, Lemeza. The client is the priority, after all. You spy him standing towards the back of the group, clutching the box he brought with him. His coat is ragged and bloody, both from the wooden men’s attacks, and the effect of Nori using her chains to catch him earlier; he’s also missing his hat. He seems entirely focused on the fight about to unfold, and you don’t blame him- though he does seem a bit jittery. Adrenaline? Fear? You can’t blame him- two powerful shinobi are about to square off, and he’s just a civilian.Nori is on guard nearby, her chakra chains wrapped around her forearms. Her loose fitting clothes are mostly intact- looks like she was able to avoid most of the wooden men’s attacks. She’s squinting in the sunlight, her mask tied off around her waist. Hinata is half the distance between Nori and yourself; her Byakugan active. Or are they still active from your escape from the ruins? She has to be exhausting herself using them for such a prolonged period of time….Kurotsuchi, meanwhile, is atop a nearby dune. She’s observing, but you can she’ll be ready to flee in a moment’s notice. This isn’t her fight, and her client is dead or worse. No doubt the mission has already far surpassed her expectations. Your eyes flick back to Itachi-sensei. He hasn’t moved- and neither has Shisui. The Akatsuki member is staring straight at Itachi- in fact, it doesn’t appear he’s broken his gaze. Is it some sort of Genjutsu? You’re beginning to worry….1. It has to be a genjutsu! Try to help Itachi escape!2. It may be a Genjutsu, but you don’t have sharingan- there’s nothing you can do.3. Surely if it was Genjutsu, Shusui would’ve taken advantage by now?
>>48526099>3. Surely if it was Genjutsu, Shusui would’ve taken advantage by now?
>>485260991. It has to be a genjutsu! Try to help Itachi escape!Apply senbon to arm.
>>48526099>3. Surely if it was Genjutsu, Shusui would’ve taken advantage by now?eh walking into an ongoing genjutsu battle is a bad idea.
>>48526099>3. Surely if it was Genjutsu, Shusui would’ve taken advantage by now?We might be a tad outclassed here.
>>48526099>3. Surely if it was Genjutsu, Shusui would’ve taken advantage by now?Make sure that we have no genjitsu on us or Nori, Hinata first.
>>48526099I'm one of >>48526140 or >>48526144Adding >>48526193>Make sure that we have no genjitsu on us or Nori, Hinata first.to my vote.
Avoiding genjutsu battle while checking yourself. Writing.
>>48526099>3. Surely if it was Genjutsu, Shusui would’ve taken advantage by now?Tell the others to get Lemeza to safety.
So if we end up passing the Chunni exams we should ask Minato for two or three months off active duty so we can train. We can tell him that we want to make sure were strong enough before we go out on missions since were a huge target with our families money and our release
>>48526406That implies we show people our release, Which we won't bloody do.
>>48526443We will if we fight Gaara.
>>48526443We said we were saving it for the exams
>>48526443We are probably going to be using it at the exams.
>>48526495I just hope it doesnt kill someone.
>>48526509We should have better control by then. We also have that nice buff that increases all our parameters we can use.
>>48526509I'd be fine iwth killing someone if it's an "us or them" type situation and it's in the Forest of Death.Other than that, I'd rather not kill someone.
Are we going to try to bribe people in the exams?
>>48526557Yes but we need to do it in front of the judgesFollow me on this one, if we do it infront of them it shows that we know how to use our skills to our advantage. If we do it backstage then its just being dishonest
>>48526557No, End of story.
>>48526557>>48526566>>48526572>>48526582>>48526589No that anon, but I say only to get Nori to pass the written portion of the exam.Pay a guy, or Ino, to get answers.Then that's it. The rest will be passed with skill.
>>48526582We're a ninja you fucking idiot.
We're really just sitting back and letting this guy do whatever he wants to Itachi's head?
>>48526613What do you suggest we do?
>>48526582Anon, Tsuki is a business woman and a ninja. Dishonesty is a required skill.
>>48526582We... actually do it where they don't see it or we get through out because we got caught cheating. Cheating is allowed if they don't see it.
>>48526613I can't tell who is winning. We might inadvertently fuck up Itachi if we interfere.
>>48526633Maybe letting people see it once can work to our advantage, same way Team Guy sandbagged a little in the exams letting people bully them.
You aren’t entire convinced it’s Genjutsu, but you quickly prick a finger with a kunai to check- The pain and the little bead of blood confirm it; no genjutsu. Internally, you sigh with relief.Something does seem to be going on between the two Uchiha, though- Itachi has dropped to one knee, and is breathing heavily. What exactly just happened? Neither of the men moved….Shisui is smiling. “Now, do you understand? We’re all cursed, Itachi! Our destiny writ in blood! No matter how hard we-”Itachi vanishes. What?Half a heartbeat later, Shisui is gone as well.You can hear them, though- and the sand shifting gives it away. They are simply so fast that your eyes cannot follow them; you believe this technique is called the Body Flicker, if you’re remembering it correctly.Maybe if you had Hinata’s eyes…. But you don’t. All you can do is follow the brief afterimages…. As you strain your eyes, however, something else gains your attention- the ground. It’s shaking. Every so slightly, but it’s there. What could that possibly mean?1. Assume the worst, and alert the party.2. Make a clone, and take Lemeza to safety.3. You’re probably just tired; you need to stay to support Itachi.
>>48526757>1. Assume the worst, and alert the party.Sensei time to go! NOW!
>>48526757>2. Make a clone, and take Lemeza to safety.Tell everybody, though. Kisame, our friends, etc.It could be those plant people getting close, and I don't think anyone wants that
>>48526757>2. Make a clone, and take Lemeza to safety.
>>48526757>2. Make a clone, and take Lemeza to safety.Mission comes first
>>48526623I don't know.. but I don't like this.>>485267572. Make a clone, and take Lemeza to safety.
>>48526757>1. Assume the worst, and alert the party.>2. Make a clone, and take Lemeza to safety.Is the dune worm that Tsuki was so worried about finally happening?
>>48526757>1. Assume the worst, and alert the party.SANDWORM!!!
>>48526757Wait what did Lemeza grab!?
>>48526757>1. Assume the worst, and alert the party.
>>48526757>2. Make a clone, and take Lemeza to safety.There's a ninja underground.
>>48526757>4. Yell out, "SANDWORM!"
>>48526557Yea, but not for ourselves but to get Nori to pass as well. CAPITALISM OHOHO
>>485267571. Assume the worst, and alert the party.2. Make a clone, and take Lemeza to safety.
>>48526875But rather take Lemeza yourself and have the clone stay to observe.
>>48526837If Tsuki does do that, should she not tell her teammates?This will make great practice on our future under the table deals.
>>48526807He's had a box tightly in his grasp since the first confrontation with the woodmen. He seems unwilling to leave it behind.
>>48526837We just need to find a way to cheat the info to nori.In any case, chances are that Wargle might just come up with something new instead.
>>48526969Cpould we yell at Lemeza to give it back so we don't all die?
>>48527009We'll see if the Thing just keeps veering for him.Then we yell at him.
>>48527009Lets see if what's in the sand is only going after Lem before telling our employer to get rid of his prize.
>>48527009>>48527030Why?It's just a box. We don't know if it's connected.
>>48527039Mysterious ruins full of weird shit and he took something out. Stands to reason that some guardian might want it back.
Also, assuming the worst.Writing.
>>48525283Holy crap I'm late.
>>48527104What did Kevin Spacey do this time?
>>48526908>>48526980Sure, we can hold it over her head.And I think that would be a lot easier to pass on the knowledge if we could use some genjutsu or had a summoning contract by then. Or we could just create something, like a image sender. Take a picture of our completed test and send it to her. Though we wouldn't need to bribe anyone then.
>>48527260>Its the head of our stuffed bunny rabbit
>>48527274Art of blushing Tsuki clutching a bunny plush with Kaguya horns to her chest when?
What was Tsuki's stuffed animal growing up Wargle?
>>48527523You say that like she didn't have all the stuffed animals.
>>48527535But she must of had one that she cared about the most
>>48527535and a little stuffed zoo keeper to look after them
>>48527551And I bet it wasn't a bunny if you're implying that.
>>48527523>Tsuki is moon in Japanese>Rabbits are connected to the moon in Japanese folklore
>>48527561I wasn't I'm guessing a teddy bear
>>48527551But then the others would get jealous. And the tea party's would start getting awkward.
>implying genius engineering dad didn't just give us a shitton of legos and puzzles
“Everyone! There’s something below us! The is ground is shaking!” you yell out to everyone present.“Princess, I was just joking about the Sandworms, ok? Now really is not the time-” Nori stops mid sentence, as the rumbling become a bit more audible. Thinking quickly, you summon a shadow clone, and send it to collect Lemeza. The rumbling grows louder, and Itachi and Shisui separate, with each man going to their respective side. Both are injured, though Itachi seems much worse for wear. With a loud rush of sand, a large beast bursts forth!It’s huge, with several gaping maws- and looks exactly like wooden men from earlier. Atop it’s pale white form is several heads- some oriented oddly.“THIEVES! YOU VIOLATE HOLY GROUND, THEN ROB IT AS WELL! PAY WITH YOUR LIVES! GET THEM! GET THEM!” The multiple heads say at once, the garbled speech barely intelligible.Around you, several more of them begin surfacing from the sand.“Hey, hey. You Zetsu are really annoying! It’s rude to interrupt a duel! How many of you do we need to kill, anyway? I’m taking this up with old monochrome when we get back…” Kisame complains, drawing his sword.Zetsu? Is that what they’re called?Your clone immediately fights off two of the zetsu going for Lemeza- seems like the fight with the Akatsuki is on hold, for now. Everyone relocates in a defensive position around Lemeza- the fight begins again!How will you fight?1. Defensively. Protect the client at all costs.2. Offensively. Let the others worry about protecting Lemeza while you burn some zetsu.3. A mix of both, when the flow of battle allows.4. Try to retreat instead!
>>48527650>3. A mix of both, when the flow of battle allows.No stellar though
>>48527650>1. Defensively. Protect the client at all costs.Only use stellar if absolutely necessary.
>>48527650>3. A mix of both, when the flow of battle allows.
>>48527650>1. Defensively. Protect the client at all costsHas Kurotsuchi fled yet? Or is she still observing?
>>48527650>3. A mix of both, when the flow of battle allows.>LAMEZA GIVE IT BACK THE DAMN BOX!
>>48527650>1. Defensively. Protect the client at all costs.
>>48527650>3. A mix of both, when the flow of battle allows.The Clone Defends alongside Hinata.Us and Nori engage the monstrosity. Fire+Wind Combo's when we can.
>>48527650>3. A mix of both, when the flow of battle allows.Give them back the flower and box.
>>48527695No we keep box, box ours now.
>>48527717>>48527717Don't you know the first rule of archaeology? If you find it its yours
>>485276502. Offensively. Let the others worry about protecting Lemeza while you burn some zetsu.With Itachi in bad shape and hinata probably tired from using her eyes this entire time, we're the most suited towards being the offensive force on the team right now (alongside Nori)
IT BELONGS IN A MUSEUM ...THE NORHIME CLAN FAMILY MUSEUM TO BE SPECIFIC!
>>48527759>>48527782We're not British, anons.
>>48527717>>48527729can we just take out the contents and give them the empty box back for a running head start?
>>48527804Yes who cares about the box, we want the treasure
>>48527650If things get bad though we go full on retreat with the contact. The akatsuki won't kill Itachi and they can clean up this mess. The mission comes first, and I'm not giving up this box!
>>48527650>3. A mix of both, when the flow of battle allows.keep the box and flowers. Fuck these panzy ass anons wanting to give it all away.
>>48527796We totally are an ohhohoho ojou-sama so we might as well be
Mix of Both offense and defense.Anons, roll me some dice.1d100, first three.
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>48528000Rolling
>>48528014Sensei death #2 coming right up.
>>48528014Fuck.Glad crits don't count.
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>48528000Well heres for a 100
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>48528000>>48528014oh goddamn it, there goes Itachi
Rolled 66 (1d100)>>48528000
>>48528030That's good.>>48528032Crits don't count.
>>48528023Please anon, at worst Hinata/Nori will get Neji'd
>>48528014so glad crits were removedsorry Ebisu sensei, you will have to wait a little longer before you get company
>>48528014You fucking would. Makes me glad I'm not counting crits. Christ.
>>48528061Nah just have the Team visit the memorial.
>>48528062I'm sorry...And I hope it's just highest roll, and we're not rolling for each member of Team Itachi.
>>48528091Just highest roll, for now. But I will start varying what roll results are for in the future- though I'll let you know ahead of time.
>>48528116Okay, good.And thank you for letting us know.
>>48528014>Angry Ojou-sama noises!
High of 84. Writing.
>>48528062>3d100>no critsOne of the only systems where that shit isn't dumb with 3 dice and you are too frightened to employ it. I am disappoint.
>>48528155HE DIED FOR OUR SINS!!!!
>>48528155NO MORE DEAD SENSEIS!
>>48528155we crit fail a lot, we'd be dead like 2 times over at this point since those fails also seem to show up at critical junctures
>>48528200So this is the opposite of Mecha Space Pirate then
>>48528187Please anon, Tsuki isn't an insufferable twat. Pic related is far more similar to Tsuki than Umaru is.
>>48528155as far as I know, there are no crits at all- fail or success. Seems pretty fair as long as the consequences for failing or passing the DC reflect that change
>>48528190>>48528194One of the things that made this different and interesting from the other Naruto quests. Boruto Quest rest in peace>>48528200Dice fun. The pain cannot continue over a statistically significant number of rolls. Unless it does.
>>48528219yeah, I mean we just crit seduced another important character over there.whereas tsuki's debut in regular combat consisted of being bitchslapped and ko'ed
>>48528262I swear the last two potential crit fails would have had us either dead or missing limbs, but its only the combat rolls that do this, anything economic or social we roll high at. kinda fitting actually.
>>48528262What happened with Boruto quest we haven't heard anything from Mini at all
>>48528265>>48528288Everyone take a moment to thank daddy for paying our way through the Academy
>>48528309Its dead Jim. Unless it picks up to die once more in like 3 threads like Sith academy quest.
>>48528333I wonder who we would have ended up with, my money was on Snow queen or our team mate
>>48528345Yeah. Either of them would have been cute with Takeshi. I suspect Ai would have been the main choice.
>>48528377Yeah, her too.
You concern yourself with the immediate task at hand- defending Lemeza. With the four of you in a defensive formation, the battle quickly becomes a repeat of the ruins- these individual zetsu don’t seem particularly powerful. Across the dunes, the Akatsuki members seem to be faring well against the zetsu, which is to be expected. Like before, you call on Nori for a combination technique, using her Gale Palm in conjunction with your Fire Dragon Bullet to great effect, although the zetsu aren’t packed as tightly as before. The big one, though, proves pretty resilient. The swathe of flame clips it, but it doesn’t seem to do much. It may take a bit more to effectively damage it…You have a couple options, and are free to engage with him since the defense is going pretty well.You…1. Ask if any of your teammates have a really powerful technique they’ve been hiding.2. Use a stellar technique3. Engage a Team 7 Combination attack!4. Do something else. (What?)
>>48528377She has a picture of poop on her jacket.
>>48528413>3. Engage a Team 7 Combination attack!
>>48528413>3. Engage a Team 7 Combination attack!Is it time for Getter?
>>48528413>2. Use a stellar technique
>>48528456Not in front of the Akatsuki anon
>>485284133. Engage a Team 7 Combination attack!Something to make Ebisu proud.
>>48528413>3. Engage a Team 7 Combination attack!Either >Hinata uses her Rotation (I can't remember what it's called, but the sharp one, not the one Neji used) to pin down Zetsu>We use Phoenix Flower Jutsu>Have Nori reinforce it with Gale PalmOR if Hinata knows Wall/Thirty-Two/Sixty-Four Palms>Have Nori pin down Zetsu with her Chakra Chains> We use Phoenix Flower Jutsu>Hinata uses Wall/32/64 Palms after the shuriken are embedded in Zetsu to push them through him
>>48528413>3. Engage a Team 7 Combination attack!>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQZIpdAoQUc
>>48528499>Tsuki used Selfdestruction!
>>48528413>3. Engage a Team 7 Combination attack!I can't pick anything but this.
Team 7 Combination Attack!Writing.
Is it time for a Stoner Sunshine?
Looks like Wargle may be dead>>48528646Hoping for a stellar spirit bomb in the future
>>48528977It's only been about 27 minutes.
>>48528977We didn't give him much guidance on what this combination attack would be, like that one anon, so give him some time to think up something good.
>>48529052>>48529001how many anons in this thread are still awake?
>>48529052Maybe this one anon's words will be heard. Please Wargle...
>>48529077Plenty it's not very late.
>>48529077I'm nocturnal at this point of my life, so I'll be here for awhile.
>>48529077still here, only 10 pm here.
>>48529052As a fellow QM, every time I'm left to come up with something cool on my own I'm giddy with excitement.
>>48529077It's like 1:01 AM here.
“Itachi-sensei! I have an idea! Can you handle defending the client for a moment?” you ask, deflecting another Zetsu’s strike.“Yes, for a time. Please don’t overexert yourself, Tsuki.” he says- you can tell he’s not fighting at full strength here, so it’s best to hurry.You summon the girls to your side, and briefly go over the plan. Hinata nods in approval, while Nori looks at you like you’re insane- and maybe you are. Only one way to find out!As you three rush forward, you see Itachi create three shadow clones to take your sports in the defensive formation. “Nori! Hinata! Now!” You say, as the three of you run towards the monstrosity.Nori fires off waves of chakra chains, attempting to pin it down. As she does so, Hinata bites her thumb- summoning several snakes from the earth, biting down into the creature’s limbs. As they do, you see poison spreading through it’s limbs. As it struggles, Nori crouches down, allowing you to get on her back.“Princess, this better work.” Nori says, as she stands. “It will. Trust in me, and trust in Hinata. We can pull it off.” you respond back, not really giving credence to her concerns. She’ll see.
>>485291153:03 PM for me.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQgXvmtI_ug“Ok, go!” You shout- and Nori uses her strength, to wrench you and her up into the air, propelled by wind chakra. It’s a rough ride, and you almost lose your grip- almost. You soar high above the creature- you’ll only have one chance at this. “Now! Do it!” You shout. “Wind Release! Gale Palm!” Nori shouts, the wind tunnel propelling you even further into the air- stop only by Nori’s chains. For a few moments, it almost feels like flying. “Fire Release! Great Fireball Technique!” you say, executing the technique. As you fire it into the wind tunnel, it grows, and grows very quickly- it would be very hard to control from below. As it falls it continues to grow ever larger- hopefully Hinata can pull off her part. “8 Trigrams! Revolving Heaven!” you hear Hinata shout from below. As she winds up below the creature, the giant fireball envelops them both- before her rotation begins to spin it place.The result is not unlike a great flaming tornado- easily the most powerful attack you could’ve used right now without revealing your stellar techniques. You just hope Hinata’s ok.
>>485291491 A.M. Here. Where the hell are you anon? Christmas Island?
>>48529165Australia, actually.I looked it up!
>>48529149aaay sup melborne, adelaide here.
>>48528265>>48528323>KO'edBut that's wrong.
>>48529303It is wrong, but no one corrects it.
soooo.What do we call this?HinaNoKi?
>>48529356Yes we need to name every move something that can be taken sexually so that when Tsuki is older shes embarrassed by all her move names
>>48529326We got stunned, still bad, but not getting KO'ed
>>48529347>HinaNoKi>ヒナの木>means "Tree of Chicks"Ha.
>>48529154But seriously, whoa. Something tells me we're all being looked at for Akatsuki recruitment or assassination one day after this.
>>48529347How about Fire Style: Blast Wave Wild Dance?We have to trademark the name though.
>>48529375Can't disagree with you there.
Nori releases the chains- and the two of you are immediately blown away. You tumble end over end, before Nori rights the two of you, slowing your descent with another Gale Palm. You land in a heap- but the two of you quickly scramble up to see the results. The creature is entirely blackened. For a moment, you think it might be moving- only for it to crumble to ash- completely and totally incinerated.Hinata stands below the creature- her clothes are burned in places, and her hair looks singed; her face covered in ash- but otherwise she seems ok. The attack not only incinerated the large one, but many of those in the surrounding area- giving you time to collect her.“Hinata! Are you alright?” Nori yells out as you run to her side.“That was… dangerous. But I’m fine- my Byakugan let me see chakra, after all. Thankfully I was able to redirect most of the attacks power back upwards, or dissipate it around me.” She says, smiling.“You’ve certainly got some nerve there, Hinata!” Nori says, laughing. “I never would’ve expected the old you to take that much of a risk.”“Tsuki said I could do it, and I believed her. She hasn’t let me down so far.” She says, looking to you for confirmation. You blush a bit in response. “I just thought it out- everyone had their parts to play. But seriously, both of you did great!”With the death of the large Zetsu, the others seemed to have stopped spawning- there are a few remaining, but Itachi takes care of them in short order. The three of you run back over to him- only him and one other shadow clone remain.
>>48529347>>48529401What?!Too perfect. That's it.
>>48529429>“Tsuki said I could do it, and I believed her. She hasn’t let me down so far.” She says, looking to you for confirmation.
>>48529429Aw. Precious Hinata.
>>48529460Hinata a cute.How long more before she asks naruto out. wonder if Nori has the hots for anyone.
>>48529505>Hinata a cuteIndeed.>How long more before she asks naruto out.No clue. We could encourage her to do so at some point.>Wonder if Nori has the hots for anyone.No clue.
>>48529505Well I think this Hinata will have more self confidence, and the reason why she came to admire Naruto arnt quite true to this canons Naruto. So it would make sense for that attraction to not exist in this timeline.
>>48529460I always manage to forget how sweet Hinata can be. Having a friend who believes in her makes a world of difference.
>>48529505>wonder if Nori has the hots for anyone.MoneyItachihttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OlAx4Dok38
>>48529535Clearly she's attracted to Nori, the girl who believed in her, and gave her confidence.
>>48529535Well it's still possible she likes him, considering how close she is with Nori, and he's apparently pretty suave and handsome.
With the immediate threat over, he releases the remaining clone.“Well that certainly was… flashy. But I can’t argue with results. Are the three of you alright?” he says, full of concern.“We’re fine, sensei.” You report. “How’s Lemeza?”The doctor seems a bit out of it, and is still clutching that box.“He didn’t take any hits, but he hasn’t said much. I’m beginning to worry about his mental state.” Itachi says, turning to look at the doctor.“Itachi.”Shisui’s voice- damn! You had hoped they wouldn’t be done so soon…The party looks over to where the Akatsuki were before, only to see a field of quickly decaying Zetsu. Shisui has his hood up, and Kisame has donned his hat.“Think about what we’ve discussed. The future of everyone depends on it- especially those girls you’ve trained so well. Farewell, cousin.”The two of them begin to walk off into the desert- and to your surprise, Itachi doesn’t attempt to follow them.Instead, he addresses the group.“Come, let us return to camp. We need to look after Lemeza.”
Flirty and aggressive hinata when? Pursuing Tsuki?
>>48529545You mean Tsuki.
>>48529545You mean Tsuki?
>>48529535>So it would make sense for that attraction to not exist in this timeline. the stage is set for her Tsuki crush
>>48529540>Implying Sensei isn't ours and ours aloneOr maybe Izumi's; her status is unknown to us at this point
>>48529545I'd be okay with this. I've always had a thing for Hinata, and our character and hers have a lot of similaritys and differences where it counts. I think it would make sense at some point in the future.
>>48529571>>48529587>>48529607>>48529535I'd rather have:Tsuki - Left HandHinata - HokageNori - Right Hand
>>48529607No yuri anon, we have to keep the bloodline going. If you want Tsuki to date a girl then its going to be Haku
Tsuki is straight and is hot for teacher.not against Tsuki, Nori, and Hinata learning how to kiss by practicing with each other though
>>48529650What? She can marry a guy all she likes, having a friend on the side is something nobles do from time to time.Granted this is all predicated on Hinata making the first move.
>>48529650Owe who gives a shit about the bloodline. We're already keeping it a secret as of yet so we can do what we want. If they give us too much grief on that platform, I'd just as soon have us defect from Konaha.
>>48529714>Defect from KonohaAre you even following this quest anon?
>>48529714>He wants to defect from the largest villageAnon, do you want to ruin her business and are you right in the head?
>>48529698That's easy, she never really liked Nori before, so it's not a stretch that Danzo (and the voices in Tsuki's head) would compel her to scheme in favor of stealing Hinata covertly while simultaneously getting the Heir of the Hyuuga Clan('s sister) under our(his) thumb.
-----------------------------------------------------------------The four of you sit around a table- upon the table is the box.Lemeza refused to give it up when the party returned to camp- he was haggard and delirious.Once you got inside, Itachi used his Sharingan to put the professor to sleep- and you cannot help but agree with his reasons. The man was clearly not in his right mind. But why? Was it the Zetsu? The ruins? The box itself? It certainly doesn’t seem to hold any power over the four of you- and Itachi even handled it when setting it on the table.That also reminds you- you still have that flower in your case. You’ll need to find a moment to check on it here shortly.“Well, let’s open it!” Nori says, peering at the box over the lip of the table.“It… isn’t giving off any Chakra. Or the box is containing whatever is inside.” Hinata says, staring puzzled at the box.“We might wish to wait for Lemeza, girls. We shouldn’t anger him” Itachi says, peering over to the doctor.“Hell no! He might start getting all weird again. Or maybe he just needed another smoke?” Nori says with little tact. It certainly does raise a good question. What to do?1. Deal with the Box now.2. Step outside to check on your flower first.3. Deal with neither.
>>48529798>2. Step outside to check on your flower first.>1. Deal with the Box now.
>>48529798>2. Step outside to check on your flower first.
>>48529798>1. Deal with the Box now.Money's on Rabbit contract

>>48529714>Doesn't give a shit about bloodlines.>Wants to defect from Konaha.You disgust me.
>>48529798>1. Deal with the Box now.I feel we should take it back with us...my father's labs can contain it in a safe environment, secondly apparently it has dangerous effects on none ninja...>2. Step outside to check on your flower first.Make sure the sample is secureDaddies lil girl bought him a chemical weapon and a PsyOP one. Ain't we sweet.
>>485297982. Step outside to check on your flower first.>>48529714Worse case scenario we just continue the blood line with a donation from Neji
>>48529798>1. Deal with the Box now.>2. Step outside to check on your flower first.It's all about the box. What's in the box? How much is what's in the box worth?
>>48529815If it is I want it now dammit now!
>>48529774>>48529741>>48529731You anons have no imagination. I think the story could be much more interesting then than the standard 'follow in narutos footsteps' quest. And how I have it in my mind, it wouldn't be reasonless, but to change the village. Aaaaaanyways we don't really have any motivation to have thoughts like that in character. But yea, still don't give a fuck about the bloodline.
>>48529815I think Kaguya had a horn broken off before she was sealed, so that could be in there. >>48529798>3. Deal with neitherIt would be nice to have coherent Lemeza for the box and Ino/Inoichi/Ino's mom for the flower. Inoichi might work for either, considering his abilities.
All of us right now https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SiGpvj1PwgU
>>48529654That would be cute. I could get on board with that.
>>48529853I too am a connoisseur of var
>>48529863Were going to be the head of Root anon were not following in Naruto's footsteps at all were kind of going the opposite direction
>>48529889Yea, ideally I hope things go in that direction. That appeals to me the most.
>>48529889>>48529908Head of ANBU, ideally.Follow in sensei's footsteps

>>48529963how bout a bitchin' boa?
>>48529979Boas are fucking ugly.
>>48529953Your really about that Phoenix arnt you anon?
>>48529979Not big enough anon, we need Mitsuru levels of fur coat here
>>48529990Hey, boas are awesome. If only there was a way to have a boa that turns into a coat.
>>48529963>>48529979she can afford both now though
>>48529997Wouldn't it be a Hōō?

Flower power first. Writing.
>>48530019They don't look good together though
Also ain't no Hokage gonna tell me what to do with our uterus.
>>48530046we can just buy a fur coat though....it doesn't have anything to do with the summons...
>>48530061They can't really do much anon its not like having multiple husbands will help restore the clan
>>48530034I don't care about the summon m8. Boas are just fucking stupid.The only time you see them is on an old hag or a trashy gay bar.
>>48530097>Boas are just fucking stupid.Usually.Sometimes they work, but not always.
>>48530080We aren't even a real clan, speaking of clans are the only non-heirs that are eligible Itachi, Hinata, and Neji?
You excuse yourself for a moment, and walk outside.It’s getting late, and after the explanation of events travelled throughout the camp, many of the other nation’s exploratory parties have began to pack up. Kurotsuchi fled when the battle with the Zetsu started, and her things were gone from the Land of Earth camp- presumably the death of Dr. Tamaishi meant she had failed her mission.Dr. Afzal has not been seen since heading into the ruins- and nobody from the Land of Wind camp seems particularly keen on looking for him.You open the container with the flower inside- it seems to have closed up. It doesn’t look withered, per se, but you are worried that it might without nourishment. You do know one thing that the flower does consume…..1. Feed the flower.2. Don’t feed the flower.
>>48530105We aren't Jessie Ventura, its not going to work
>>48530124Hinata is currently the Hyuga heir, anon.
>>48530128>1. Feed the flower.
>>48530097summons aside, I'm for getting a fur coat>feed itI know I'm going to regret this choice
>>48530128>2. Don’t feed the flower.
>>48530152Is there no Hanabi? >>48530128>2. Don't feed me, Seymour
>>48530128>1. Feed the flowerBut bleed into a container and let it feed off that. Not let it feed directly from us.
>>48530128>2. Don’t feed the flower.>>48530134
>>48530128>2. Don’t feed the flower.Don't give into its powers
>>48530128>1. Feed the flower.Time to work on our singing
>>485301281. Feed the flower.>>48530163Fur coat =/= boa.Fine with a fur coat.
>>48530177You made me post thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KGCqFjSWA4
>>485301281. Feed the flower.Too tempting.
>>48530169Hanabi only became heir after she beat Hinata in a fight, in canon.Hinata's probably not going to lose that fight, this time.
>>48530169I hope there's a Hanabi. Hanabi's a cute, and she seems like she'd get along with Tsuki.
>>48530239Shut up Jimmy
>>48530240>mfw ROOT!Tsuki grooms Hanabi to become her 2nd in Command
>>48530260Go to break, Piggy Boy.
>>48530266So lets get our poaching list togetherHanabiHinataTen-Ten
>>48530266I want this. We should do this.
>>48530238I thought that fight happened before this point, but maybe they haven't had a chance yet. Hanabi is still pretty strong for her age, and the position of clan leadership fits her better, even with a more strong-willed Hinata. Your call though. >>48530240This guy gets it.
Feed me, Seymour.Writing.
>>48530266Owe dang. That would be very Danzo of us.
>>48530293It actually didn't happen at all; in canon it would've happened shortly after she became a genin, I think. Due to differences in personality, and her actually showing growth, I don't believe the elders would've questioned it.
>>48530355I'm surprised they didn't question her constitution when Ebisu died (for our sins) because the Hyuuga elders are some harsh fucks.
>>48530355In this universe is Hiashi the ck2 master he is in the show?
So we're taking this flower to Danzo to figure out what it is right?
>>48530414Before we do anything with it, how about we put it in a secured box first? Don't want pollen to fly around.
>>48530392Ehh Ebisu was a jonin. I don't think anyone saw that one coming.
>>48530414I thought we were taking it to the Yamanaka's because they actually might know being florists.
>>48530438Danzo firstthen maybe Yamanakas
>>48530414Danzo or the Yamanaka familiy.
>>48530414I was under the impression we were gonna take it to Ino's family. Or is that just the cover story? I'm sure they'd be able to figure it out better than Danzo.
>>48530438Evil flower, kills people, might be a secret weapon. Danzo is probably the better option.
>>48530414More like the Yamanaka's. Because they're flower experts. If they don't know, Fugaku Uchiha might be the person with the knowledge to tell us about it. But we don't know that and he hates us for being uncouth with him that one time and associating with Danzo.
>>48530438This is purely need to know if Danzo doesn't know he has a contact that would know
ROOT HAS A YAMANAKA CLAN MEMBER IN ITS FOLDhttp://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/F%C5%AB_Yamanaka
Say, has Danzo ever given us any indication that we shouldn't tell dad about our release? He's our dad, and we would definitely trust him. And besides, having him on board with our release means he could potentially design something to help us amplify or control it more efficiently.He's obviously on the level enough for Danzo to be his butler, and he's got a dubious enough past to understand the value of having Danzo teach us the way only the ROOT can. It might be worth having that conversation with him.
You decide to feed it your blood. You want to keep it intact for your trip back home, after all. You don’t really want it touching you, so you make a shallow cut on your palm with a kunai. You let the blood drip slowly into the container; and the effects are immediate. The immediately begins unfolding, blossoming once more into it’s beautiful pale shade of purple.Despite how pretty it is, it really is quite the dangerous plant- you like that about it, though. Kunoichi are taught the art of flower arranging- and you cannot help but think this flower bears resemblance to the kunoichi ideal: Beautiful and Deadly.You decide to check on it once a day or so, just to make sure it’s staying fed. Once you’re back in Konoha, you’ll need to decide where you want to take it; Ino’s family certainly would be able to identify it- but you wonder, would Danzo be able to weaponize this plant? Having a unique weapon based on such a thing could only stand to make your family more powerful…Well, those are thoughts for later. There’s another piece of business to attend to, after all.You wrap your hand in a fresh bandage, and sit back down at the table. Lemeza is still asleep, and probably will remain so unless Itachi wakes him. Your team is still sitting around the box, though they don’t seem to be as focused on it as before.You know you want to open it, but how to approach it?1. Wake Lemeza and open the box.2. Open the box without Lemeza awake.3. Actually, I’ve changed my mind about opening the box.
>>48530436She was pretty shaken up by it is what I meant. Hanabi, while an expressive person later on, does still respond well to pressure.
>>485304941. Wake Lemeza and open the box.
>>48530494>2. Open the box without Lemeza awake.
>>48530489We don't know that and ROOT is more dead in this universe than canon.
>>48530392If you remember, you all only grieved for a few days before reaffirming your desire to grow stronger. You guys actually rebounded pretty quickly from that. >>48530413Absolutely. No reason for him to be any different.
>>48530494>2. Open the box without Lemeza awake.If he asks the box was empty
>>48530494>1. Wake Lemeza and open the box.There could be a trap.
>>48530494>1. Wake Lemeza and open the box.
>>48530516"Officially" disbandedthey're not the governmentjust the conspiracy
>>48530520I thought there was a timeskip of about a month in there, my bad. >>48530494>3. Actually I've changed my mind about opening the boxWhile part of me wants to see what's in there, another part of me doesn't want to trigger some sort of Otsutsuki apocalypse.
>>48530494>1. Wake Lemeza and open the box.We should probably ask the man who knows more about the box first.
>>48530494>1. Wake Lemeza and open the box.let's not go full pandora's box here guys
>>48530494>1. Wake Lemeza and open the box.Bugger it I want to see what he does.
>>48530679>He starts raving about rabbits and the eye of the moon, before trying to eat the flower
>>48530712>Tsuki meets Kaguya in Shippuden>Both accuse the other of stealing their gimmick
>>48530724>Meeting KaguyaAs much as I like the Mother of Chakra, that's not an easy feat
“Itachi-sensei? Can you wake Lemeza for me?” you ask politely.Hinata and Nori look at you inquisitively, but say nothing. Itachi rises, and makes his way over to the sleeping archaeologist. He rouses the man with little effort- maybe he was just that tired?“Lemeza. We’re about to open the box. We figured you would want to be awake for this.” Itachi says.“The box? I…. sorry, my memory is a little foggy. But yes, let’s see what’s inside.”Lemeza rises, and the five of you stand around the table.“It’s quite old, and rather unadorned. But… I’m not entirely sure why I took it. I guess that I just felt that it was important?” The doctor says, lightning a cigarette. When did he grab that?“You were guarding it with your life, Lemeza. You nearly died twice over this dumb thing.” Nori says, her voice dripping with contempt.“O-oh? Did I? I apologize- I wasn’t trying to make more difficult for you shinobi. You definitely did everything we could’ve asked of you, considering the circumstances.” Lemeza says, scratching the back of his head. Nori huffs, but you doubt she’ll hold the grudge for long.“Well then, let’s take a look, shall we?” you say, addressing the group.You…1. Let Lemeza open the box.2. Open the box yourself.
>>485308362. Open the box yourself.
>>48530836>1. Let Lemeza open the box.
>>48530836>2. Open the box yourself.
>>48530836>1. Let Lemeza open the box.just in case it goes full Ark of the Covenant
>>48530836>1. Let Lemeza open the boxAnd if any ninja present should open the box, Nori or Itachi would be best
Opening the box yourself.Writing.
>>48530489Huh. That might be a thing, if he's still around and has ties to danzo. If he was ever root in this universe at all.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MC7H1rOU1GgGingerly, you undo the simple metal latch on the front of the box.You look around to Lemeza and your team, who all nod at you, in turn.With utmost care, you open the lid of the box- it creaks as if it’s been a thousand years since it was last opened.Inside, a singular porcelain white egg rests on a small velvet pillow- there seems to be no dust, or sign of aging. Odd.The egg itself is adorned with an image of two crowned rabbits, bowing before a great tree. Atop the tree, a singular red eye rests. It has ringed pupils and has 9 tiny tomoe etched inside. Truly, the details are amazing. A simple look atop the egg links it to a chain of spun silver.You lift it gently, to inspect it further.The eye stares with intent- it’s unblinking image uncompromising.អ្នកកាន់ ស៊ុត ជាម្ចាស់ក្សត្រីYOU HOLD THE EGG OF THE QUEEN.Your extremities feel…. cold. You gasp for breathe, and your vision darkens.You clutch the egg to your chest as you lose consciousness….
>>48531018YES ITS TIME TO BECOME GRIFFITH
>>48531018We should start a cult based on our egg-induced visions
And we'll end there, boys.Join us tomorrow for the next chapter!@WargleQM for delicious theoriesThread will begin at around 7pm central tomorrow. I'd like to take us all the way up to the beginning of the exams, before I take a short break to get my schedule sorted. POST THREAD BEGINS NOW
>>48531018>អ្នកកាន់ ស៊ុត ជាម្ចាស់ក្សត្រី>You scored a princessFuck yes we did. Or she did.Either one.
>>48531059So what was Tsuki's favorite stuffed animal growing up?
>>48531059TOSSED SALADS AND SCRAMBLED EGGS!thanks for running
>>48531059Are we gonna become Griffith?And when/if we ally with Kaguya, are we gonna be Not!Femto?
>>48531059Thank you for running, Wargle.
>>48531059Shit thanks Wargle. Very excited for tomarrow.
>>48531018>YOU HOLD THE EGG OF THE QUEEN.Ominous.
>>48531059Thanks for running Wargle, tomorrow will be fun, even if your threads always throw a monkey-wrench into my evening.
>>48531082Ayy, more Kaguya art, all too rare.
If we become Griffith, resolve to sacrifice our comrades, and the egg of the King activates....I'd be down for rabbit summon and full Kaguya derail
>>48531094I would have to agree with you for the fact that it would be amazing to see that shit go down
>>48531094The only way to save Konohagakure, is by ruling the world.
>>48531068She actually had quite a few, but quickly grew bored of them in turn. Danzo gave her a plush taper that she keeps in her room, it's the only one not in storage.
>>48531063That translation can go a few ways. It could also mean egg of a queen.
>>48531094Actually reviving Kaguya seems farfetched. The egg probably has either a metric ass-ton of chakra in it, or a special kekkai genkai/Otsutsuki power/kekkai mora derivative.
>>48531071Are you?Is such a thing even possible? You guys control Tsuki, not me.
>All of this Griffith talkDo you want us to be killed by Not!Berserk?Which might be Hinata.
>>48531071but who will Tsuki rape?
>>48531139>Denying Tsuki the power that is rightfully hers>>48531144Uhhh Nori? Alternatively No one, why would we rape someone?
>>48531144Of course she will anon. Of course she will.
>>48531144We went over this before, Costco is Hinata, Nori is Guts, Were Griffith, and Konohamaru is Isidro
>>48531150But we already know the path to gain world power and it's money, business ,and underhanded tactics. We don't need to sell our soul to demons.Probably to the cold hard cash.
>>48531144Nori, and then sensei. And then Hinata. And then sensei some more. And then Hinata and Nori at the same time. And then sensei and Hinata at the same time. And then Minato and Nori at the same time, because he'll figure something's amiss. >There was no captcha for this post
>>48531111>Danzo gave her a plush taper that she keeps in her room, it's the only one not in storage.D'Awwh~
>>48531126Yeah, but what would Femto!Tsuki be like?
>>48531111Does she have a cute name for it?
>>48531198I mean, Femto is basically Griffith.Just, all, you know.God Handy.Imagine Tsuki with unlimited power.You can figure it out, anon.
>>48531202It's name is Yume.
>>48531242That's so cute~
>>48531247Everything about tiny Tsuki is cute
Ok folks I think we have found what Tsuki is keeping from this mission for herself.
>>48531227Who are the God Hand in this universe?And I mean like: What would her demon form look like?>>48531255Indeed. Weird to think that she might become Griffith.
>>48531268Agreed. It can't be trusted with anyone else.
>>48531247>>48531255So who's on board the Tapir/Baku summon contract train?
>>48531282Nah one of the summons is Definitely going to be Rabbits now, and the other is either Phoenix or tigers>>48531277Lets be honest loli griffith was really cute too
>>48531282Sorry, bud, but moon rabbits/fire roosters are too hype to pass up.
Personally I'm down for actively screwing over kaguya and going full conspiracy v. conspiracy.The world is where we keep our things. Like our money, our friends and our Danzos and Itachi.Also Father.No way are we letting her take our things.We'll take her things. If she tries to pull that space-monarchist crap we'll introduce her to the biggest revolt ever.Free-will is important; it's what allows the market to work, people to work for us and allows people to recognize the superiority of Norihime products.tl;dr: There's only room for one vainglorious moon themed chakra user on this rock.
>>48531277Who says there even is one? This is Naruto, not Berserk. Becoming griffith in spirit and becoming griffith in actuality are very different things.
>>48531319How do you revolt against Kaguya? She only revives once infinite Tsukuyomi takes place, because that's Black Zetsu's keikaku, and I don't see anyone with the Rinnegan capable of using Susano'o, do you? And she'd likely be preceded by Madara anyway.
>>48531319ah so we're Greed for FMA...>"I want everything you can possibly imagine. I want money and women, power and sex, status, glory! I demand the finer things in life!" Bunny Train is a go. We shall become the new Moon Queen the throne has been vacant to long
>>48531328>Who says there even is one?We found a Behelit. (More or less)And would we become a God Hand or an Apostle?>>48531368>We shall become the new Moon Queen the throne has been vacant to longThat'd be cool.
>>48531357NuROOT v. Akatsuki mostly.Unless we have to deal with having her as our spirit animal or sage-trainer sort. In which case it'd be somewhat more complicated and likely breakdown into less blood letting and more negotiations and diplomacy.
>>48531398That could be cool, while theres an epic fourth war, in the shadows it's the Akatsuki Remnants and new members vs NuROOT.
>>48531388It's incredibly blatant homage, yes. But rewriting the quest to become Berserk would be rather against the spirit of the quest. The egg obviously serves a purpose, but if you're expecting the Idea of Evil to show up and Nori to start using a giant sword, you're going to be disappointed.
>>48531423Then can we at least rape Hinata to get to Nori after we join Kaguya?
>>48531398Sadly, Kaguya isn't in spirit form like Hagoromo (and maybe Hamura, everything surrounding him is kind of murky) or transmigrating like Ashura and Indra. Her consciousness was sealed in the moon, and she can only be revived when Black Zetsu infuses the Ten-Tails' Jinchuriki with her will. As for NuROOT vs Akatsuki, I'm pretty sure either the Eye of the Moon Plan or Nagato's MAD would be well under way by the time it got on its feet.
>>48531423True. I'm just excited, confused and a little anxious about it all.>Nori to start using a giant sword, you're going to be disappointed.Nori should use a giant sword anyway, though.That'd be cool.
>>48531448Doesn't mean running actual stealth/espionage wouldn't be important regardless.
>>48531484>Eye of the Moon Plan comes to fruition"Well Dream Danzo and Dream Itach, good work, victory tea party at my mansion astride the Hokages' Heads!"As we turn into drill-haired Zetsu>Nagato's MAD plan commences"Well, the Raikage decided to nuke the Tsuchikage, who decided to retaliate while nuking the Kazekage, good thing Sand is too poor to afford nukes.""What about Mist?""Took care of itself. ""Wow, thank goodness the two of us survived Rain's initial destruction of Leaf.""Too bad everyone else is dead.""Quite."
>>48531527The point wasn't that it's be useful v. Infinite Tsukiyomi.You can't just assume we're going to be slapped into a coma and expect us or anyone to be useful without "because plot!".The MAD thing could at least in theory be set back, derailed or otherwise via espionage/spy work.
>Samehada is unique for being a sentient weapon that gains nourishment from the chakra of others and as such, the blade is at its happiest when engorged with chakra that possesses both a distinctive and pleasant flavour. It apparently greatly enjoys Killer B's chakra since, according to Kisame, it tastes like octopus. However, it has shown displeasure towards fire-natured chakra, stating that — according to B — it's far too hot.Something tells me he woudnt like our chakra much.
>>48531901Dunno, maybe Lightning would qualify for tangy?
We're totally gonna fuck sensei, right guys?
You guys have the wildest imaginations and it's great.
>>48533620No clue, but canon Itachi basically showed an interest in two things: Konoha and Sasuke. So we're in entirely unknown territory here.>what's in the eggIs the new lingering question.
>>48533847I think we all know what's really in the egg.
