>You are Kirai Kodomo, Jounin of Konohagakure. A veteran of two shinobi world wars, you were assigned a genin team by the Third Hokage in a poorly thought out decision. Nonetheless, you’ve been working to turn Team 8 into a squad worthy of their instructor, and to that end have been training them vigorously and without mercy. It’s been about a month since they were assigned to you, and already the results are beginning to show. You just wish that the brats would be a little less annoying.“I hate you, asshole. I really, really HATE you.”You must admit, you would find the dog boy’s vehemence rather impressive were it not for the fact he was twelve. Or perhaps he was thirteen? You couldn’t remember, much like you couldn’t remember his name, but the point was that he was difficult to find legitimately threatening. Of course, the fact that he was huffing about this in the middle of his exercises earned him a smack on the back of the head, courtesy of your fist. It shut him up.“Inuzuka, that is not an appropriate way to talk to your superior. Besides, your mother was nice enough. A little rough around the edges, I’ll admit. I have just the way to make it up to you, anyway.”He glares at you.“Make it up to me?”“Indeed. After morning training, I’m planning on requesting a C-rank mission from the Hokage.”“Excuse me, Kirai-sensei,” the bug brats breaks in, “but I do not believe we have, at present, attained the level of experience required to perform a higher rank mission.”“Nonsense, Aburame. Most genin fresh out of the Academy…well, the ones that pass their jounin instructor’s exam, anyway, are prepared for C-rank missions immediately. The only reason we make them perform D-ranks first is because we need some grunts to hand off all the boring missions to, and genin, being the lowest ranked of our ninja, are the obvious choice. Now get back to your water-walking or I’ll have to bring out the bugspray.”The bug brat took your threat seriously, returning as quickly as he could to his chakra control training. Ah, if there was an upside to having to deal with the brats, it was that you could punish them with near-impunity, so long as it didn’t result in serious injury.Once your team is suitably exhausted from their morning training, you collect them and start making your way over to the Hokage’s tower. Unlike the first time they had morning training, you don’t have to haul them around personally. Clearly all that physical conditioning was working. Instead of passing out or collapsing in pain, they knew how to grit their teeth and push through it. That sort of perseverance would serve them well in the future.“Kirai-sensei…you aren’t a clone?” asks the Hyuuga.“Nope. C-rank missions aren’t generally dangerous but I still can’t have you guys leaving the village without me being there. If something happens to you your parents would literally kill me,” you say. Then you start hopping on rooftops towards your destination.
>>1848782You push through the door of the Hokage’s office, only to notice he is accompanied once again by your team’s old chunin instructor, a man who seems constantly angry at you for some reason. You figure he must have previously had a rather laid-back teaching style, and was horrified at how hard you were pushing his former students. You could respect his audacity at questioning our methods. That didn’t reduce the annoyance it caused you, though.“Hokage-sama,” you nod. “I would like to request another mission.”“Yes, yes. Hmm. What would you prefer? Babysitting civilian children, capturing an escaped cat, walking the Inuzuka clan dogs-”“Excuse me, Hokage-sama, but I was actually hoping to request a C-rank mission.”“WHAT?!” shouts the chunin. “You can’t be serious. They’ve only been genin for a little over a month. They’re not ready!”You glare at him. He glares back.“I judge them to be capable of successfully completing a C-rank mission, so I am requesting one.”He doesn’t respond, knowing that any further outbursts would cause you to break out the good old forehead poke, but his glare gets even keener. You take back that thought about his laid-back teaching style. The kids at the Academy must have been chastened by his temper quite often. Or at the very least silenced by it. Perhaps it wasn’t a hopeless institution after all. Could do with a little curriculum reform, of course.The Hokage sighs.“Are you absolutely sure they are ready, Kirai-san?”“Yes.”“Then since I doubt I can dissuade you, I will allow it.”“Thank you, Hokage-sama.”“Very well. There are two C-rank missions available. The first is an escort mission. A merchant traveling to the Land of Mountains wishes for a shinobi escort to protect him from bandits and the like. The second is a mission to deliver a prisoner. A civilian fugitive from Sunagakure fled to the Land of Fire and was captured by one of our outlying outposts, and Suna requested that we hand over the prisoner to one of their genin teams in the Land of Rivers, under the supervision of a representative from Tanigakure.”>Take the mission to the Land of Mountains. A relatively simple escort mission should be a good introduction to C-ranks for the brats.>Take the mission to the Land of Rivers. The genin team sent to pick up the prisoner may be participating in the Chunin Exams in a couple of months, so it can’t hurt to scope out the competition.

>>1848789>>1848816>>1848829Land of Rivers it is. writing
>>1848783>Take the mission to the Land of Rivers.Man. Escorting a prisoner? Just think of all the awful, traumatizing shit that could happen to our students in a situation like this...
>>1848873The real question is what sort of suicide watch should we have? If they guy fled the country, Suna might execute him for what he's done.They'll have to listen to him beg, threaten, and sob like a baby in the face of his well-deserved end. And, of course, he might need a suicide watch (which we'll totally force the genin to take part in)
>>1848889We should have the Hyuuga doing that with us maybe she will grow a spine then.
>>1848873I know, isn't it wonderful?
Oh boy, futa Naruto quest!That's who the QM is right?
>>1848947No, we all thought so too, but no.
>>1848783>Take the mission to the Land of Rivers. The genin team sent to pick up the prisoner may be participating in the Chunin Exams in a couple of months, so it can’t hurt to scope out the competition.Oh boy time for our zabuza equivalent
>>1848953So he's just some kinda faggot?
>>1848988Yes. But a good humored faggot.
>>1848868The Land of Rivers was a buffer state between the Land of Fire and the Land of Wind. Its shinobi village, Tanigakure, was effectively a mutual puppet of Konoha and Suna. Although due to Suna’s recent monetary issues the village had begun relying more and more on Konoha. It was a safe area, clear of bandits and regularly patrolled by Tani, Konoha, and Suna shinobi alike. It would definitely be less likely to give some combat experience to your brats, but the chance to collect some information on Suna’s genin was a chance you couldn’t let slip you by.“The mission to the Land of Rivers sounds fine,” you say. “Out of curiosity, what was the prisoner’s crime?”“He murdered one of the many cousins of the Land of Wind’s Daimyo,” says the Third, taking in a long drag from his pipe afterwards.“Was it politically motivated?”“Suna did not inform us. But it is possible. Therefore it is crucial that the prisoner is delivered safely.”“I see.”There were a number of things to consider, now. If it weren’t for the fact that the exchange was to take place within the safety of the Lands of Rivers, you doubt a mission of this importance would be classified as C-rank and given to mere genin. Thankfully, with you along it would be a simple affair. More concerning was the fact that this mission was assigned to Konoha at all. Why wouldn’t Suna shinobi be entrusted with escorting the prisoner, retrieving him from the Land of Fire themselves? It implied either a lack of confidence in his own nation’s shinobi on the part of the Daimyo of Wind, or increasing tension between the two allied villages of Konoha and Suna requiring an exchange to be done in neutral territory. Or both. Can’t forget about both.The Hokage takes a long drag of his pipe. He’s probably considered all of this already.“The prisoner is located in one of our outlying outposts, as I said earlier. This scroll contains the exact coordinates of the outpost and the exchange location. I expect you to be on your way by tomorrow morning.”You nod, grabbing the scroll and leading your genin outside of the Hokage tower.“Alright. Aburame. Hyuuga. Inuzuka. A few words before you head home to start packing. First of all, make sure to inform your parents that you’ll be gone for about one to three weeks. I’m being cautious because normally it only takes one week to travel to the Land of Rivers, but weather conditions are always a concern on missions traveling outside the Land of Fire. Second, please ensure that you pack an appropriate amount of items for a one to three week journey. I’m sure they explained this in the Academy, but it’s crucial you don’t over or under pack. Lastly, I expect you to be on your absolute best behavior when we meet with the foreign shinobi. Any funny business and you’ll have started a war. We shall meet in front of the village gates in precisely two hours. Understood?”
>>1849017They all nod, and then you dismiss them.You head home to your shitty apartment, and begin to make your own preparations. You take a month’s worth of ration bars, a lot more than needed but easily carried due to their compact nature. You’ll have some extras in case foraging doesn’t go well. Besides that, you take your arsenal of shinobi tools, some emergency food pills, and a lot of weights. The brats probably think they’re going to escape their training during the mission, an illusion you will shatter at the earliest opportunity.“Right. Now let’s go wait.”Thankfully you don’t wait very long, as it appears you were correct that the Academy still covers timely packing practices. Either that, or they had help from their clans. Nonetheless, everyone is assembled on time. The dog boy even seems excited for some reason.“What’s got you so happy?” you ask him.“This is the first time I’ve left the village,” he says, with Akamaru barking in agreement. Apparently not even you could ruin his good mood. At least, not your words. There were still other things you could try.“It is also my first departure from the village,” says the bug brat. “I am looking forward to examining the varieties of insect species in the Land of Rivers.”Hearing that, you glance at the Hyuuga girl.“U-um…me too.”“I didn’t realize you were interested in insect species.”“I-I mean, u-um…I haven’t…”“Relax, I know what you meant,” you say. You pat her on the shoulder. “This will be one more step towards your future goal.”“W-what?”“Don’t worry about it. Now, let’s be off!”And with that, you and your brats set off from the village of Konoha, towards the outpost that captured the prisoner.
>>1849017>>1849020“Are we there yet?” asks the dog boy.“No. Do not say that again, either. That phrase is older than you. Besides, with those weights on, this has been some good training,” you respond.You take a moment to glance back at your genin. Now that they’re not able to train constantly, you’ve attached weights to all of their bodies so that even traveling would serve them some good. They complained, and by they you mean the dog boy, but their complaints mattered little to you. Even Akamaru had weights attached to his legs, as you’d forced him to walk on his own four paws instead of hitching a ride on his partner’s head as normal.“But it’s been a whole three days! Didn’t you say it’ll only take a week to make it to the Land of Rivers? We aren’t even at the outpost yet.”“Kiba-san, you must remember that is to be expected. Why? Because the Land of Rivers is on the border of the Land of Fire, as is the outpost, the amount of time in between reaching the two of them will be significantly shorter than the amount of time it takes to arrive at the border.”You nod.“Correct, Aburame. You should take a look at a map someday, Inuzuka. Konoha is located centrally in the Land of Fire, so the distance from the border outposts to any given location in the Land of Rivers is negligible in comparison.”He glares at you. At this point you’re used to it, as you’ve had to deal with it quite a bit since he’s been assigned to your team. It was not the first time he’d done it today, and it would surely not be the last.“E-excuse me, Kirai-sensei…the outpost is coming up,” said the Hyuuga girl. She’d been training her chakra reserves in addition to her muscles by regularly activating and deactivating her byakugan. And it appears that she was able to notice the outpost far in advance of you with it. Bullshit eyes. Least they weren’t as bullshit as the sharingan. Now that was some bullshit. You remember when you were assigned to a mission with Uchiha Fugaku, back before his son had murdered him, and-“U-um, sensei?”“Yes?”“Did you…did you hear what I said?”Oh, right. Coming up on the outpost. Better get ready. You take out the scroll, which contains the Hokage’s personal seal. Without it, you won’t be allowed to retrieve the prisoner.The outpost itself is nothing much to look at. It was one of many of its kind. Poorly staffed and managed, as it was on the border of a friendly state. No point in defending the border with Rivers, as Tanigakure was no threat and Suna was an ally of both Konoha and Tani. It contained within it a squad of chunin, and a single tokubetsu jounin. The latter had only arrived as an interrogator, apparently, and wasn’t even here normally.
>>1849017>>1849020>>1849024You show the scroll to the chunin on watch, who then leads you inside the outpost. You order your genin to wait outside as you enter the impromptu interrogation room. Inside, tied to a chair, is a young and handsome man resting completely unconscious. Next to him is a considerably less handsome man, one that you recognize instantly.“Morino Ibiki. You’re the interrogator? Was it necessary to have the head of T&I interrogate him?”“No, but I was in the area already for a previous mission and was called in as the nearest available interrogator. I don’t see the point myself, he confessed almost immediately as to why he was here.”“And why’s that? If I’m allowed to know?”“The man’s an idiot who thinks with his lower head. He’s a lower noble in the Land of Wind, who became the lover of the wife of one of the Wind Daimyo’s cousins. Apparently, she convinced him to murder her husband so that they could be together. He didn’t think to question this. The wife wanted her husband gone, but she made sure that her lover was caught in the act so she could get rid of them both. He fled to the Land of Fire because he’s afraid of both the Wind Daimyo’s retribution and the wife tying up loose ends by killing him.”“Ah. Does she have the money for shinobi? I can’t allow a genin team to deal with that.”“No, her role in this was already discovered, not that the prisoner knows that. She would have been executed, but the Wind Daimyo has similar flaws to the prisoner and decided to punish her by demoting her to a commoner and making her a concubine in his harem.”“Typical noble behavior, then. Won’t be able to hire shinobi when she’s busy satisfying his lust, anyway. When will the prisoner be awake?”“For a few hours, maybe. We didn’t knock him unconscious, he just fell asleep. He hadn’t slept the whole way here.”“I see. Is it fine if I take the chair?”“I don’t work at this outpost, so I have no idea. Take it up with the chunin outside. Now I’ll be on my way.”Ibiki leaves. You grab the chair and hoist it over your shoulders, prisoner still attached. Then you follow him out of the room.“Alright, here’s the deal. It’ll take another few days to make it to the Land of Rivers at our current pace, so I’ll be removing your weights. Then we should be able to make it there and back to Konoha by the end of the week, as promised. That being said, I won’t make it too easy. You’ll be taking turns carrying the prisoner with you. Got that?”“Yes, Kirai-sensei,” says the bug brat. “Who shall carry him first?”“Well, since you asked…”You have a feeling that the bug brat would have frowned were it not for the general stoicism of his expressions. He complies, of course. He knows the consequences if he resists too much from his observations of the dog boy.
>>1849017>>1849020>>1849024>>1849027When the prisoner finally awakens, it is at the worst possible time. You are busy crossing the border into the Land of Rivers, talking to some Tani shinobi, when he suddenly starts screaming from his place on the Hyuuga girl’s back.“What is this? Are you taking me to be executed? NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!”He continues to repeat that over and over again, causing the Tani shinobi to begin laughing.>Forehead poke him into unconsciousness. He’s too annoying.>Threaten him to be quieter. It should be entertaining to see his reaction to killing intent.>Lie to him and tell him he won’t be executed. Will it be as fascinating to see the look on his face when you hand him over to the Suna genin as you think it will be?
>>1849028>>Forehead poke him into unconsciousness. He’s too annoying.No reason to bully the guy.
>>1849028>Forehead poke him into unconsciousness. He’s too annoying.
>>1849028>>Forehead poke him into unconsciousness. He’s too annoying.
>>1849028>>Lie to him and tell him he won’t be executed. Will it be as fascinating to see the look on his face when you hand him over to the Suna genin as you think it will be?Maximun asshole.
>>1849028>Threaten him to be quieter. It should be entertaining to see his reaction to killing intent.Hope our gennin don't get intimidated. wasn't the point of them brigging him so they could him beg and make then grow some spine and develop some trauma?
>>1849028>Threaten him to be quieter. It should be entertaining to see his reaction to killing intent.Let's flex our pragmatism a little bit, and show our little genin how to get a job done with sharp words.
>>1849057Wait, I thought we were treating them? First C-Rank mission and all that.
>>1849028>>Forehead poke him into unconsciousness. He’s too annoying.If we scare him he could piss himself, and no-one wants that.
>>1849064>and no-one wants that.Heh, let's make Hinata cry.
>>1849064Yeah, we should only do that when Kiba's carrying him.
>>1849060>>1849068>>1849067Point and now that i think about it this could attract enemys to our location.I think a better idea would be to make one of then to keep watch on the prisioner while everyone sleep. Think of it kids trying to keep watch at a killer who nega for his life while they slowly become more and more tired from lack of sleep.>>1849028>>1849057Changing my vote to poke his head.
>>1849030>>1849032>>1849041>>1849064Forehead poke it is. Writing.
Anyone want to refresh me on the current political situation with the villages at this point? Hell just a description them to begin would be good since it's been ages since I've read or seen Naruto.
>>1849020>you take your arsenal of shinobi tools, some emergency food pills, and a lot of weights. The brats probably think they’re going to escape their training during the mission, an illusion you will shatter at the earliest opportunity.I love this MC.
>>1849113This is when the kids of the main serie had finished the academy. By now Naruto and his group must be going to the C-rank mission where they fight Haku and Zabuza. So Fire( the country of the leaf ) and wind (the country were the sand village is) are allies this is before the chuunin exams and these gennin we will be meeting will participate in it. In other words we are about to meet Temari, Kankuro and Gaara.
>>1849120Kirai is like a dark sided Gai. Hinata, Kida and Shino will become one of the best team.
>>1849152Think he meant Might Guy. But I also like how Kirai is (very) slowly becoming softer. He patted Hinata on the shoulder even.
>>1849159>I was joking about are teams names
>>1849079With no warning, you appear before him in an instant. The fear on his face is quite apparent, but any further screaming is prevented by the poke you deliver swiftly to his forehead.“Now, I believe we were about to be let in?”The Tani shinobi seem quite shocked at your speed, a fact you smile at internally. It takes them a moment to gather their thoughts and remember what you were actually talking about.“Er, right,” says one of them. “Everything checks out. Head on in.”And with that, you lead your genin into the Land of Rivers.The landscape of the Land of Rivers is quite self-explanatory. There are a lot of rivers, surrounded by huge valleys. It’s not very defensible, as there is little obstruction that shinobi cannot bypass. Thus the reason that Tanigakure never amounted to much, being in the shadow of its larger neighbors, Konoha and Suna. That being said, the brats seemed to enjoy the landscape. You never understood the concept of natural beauty very much, but you could admit that the rolling hills and glistening waters were picturesque. Or you could if you hadn’t traveled through this area dozens of times and grown bored with the views.You make good progress, and arrive swiftly at the location where the exchange was to occur. By then, night has fallen, and as the Suna shinobi haven’t arrived yet you decide to take a rest. The location itself is a small bridge above one of Tani’s many titular rivers, so you make camp on the banks nearby.“Kirai-sensei. Do we have any idea as to when the Suna shinobi will arrive?” asks the bug brat.“No clue. Konoha is further away from this location than Suna, but Suna has a much more rugged landscape. For all we know, they got caught in a sandstorm and delayed for a few days. It wouldn’t surprise me.”“I see. Have you ever been to the Land of Wind?”“Yes, actually. I was part of delegation that was sent there during the Second Great Ninja War to help create our current alliance. I always knew the sandstorms were bad but that experience showed me just how bad they were. The ambushes by Iwa shinobi didn’t help.”“You fought in the second war?” asks the dog boy. “You really are old.”“For a shinobi, maybe. That’s beside the point, though. One of you will be taking the middle watch, since that’s generally the hardest. I’ll be taking first. Have a nice nap.”And with that, you take up your position, watching the bridge and scanning around for any sign of approach from the Suna shinobi or the Tanigakure team arriving to supervise the exchange. Nothing happens, so you’re left waiting until the end of your watch, when you wake up the dog boy to take up your spot. You only pretend to sleep, of course, but you still have to get them used to this sort of routine for missions. You’ve been doing it every day of your travel so far, but now that you’re in foreign territory it’s even more important to be diligent.
>>1849230Plus there needed to be someone watching the prisoner.As one by one your genin are forced to take up watches, you continue to scan the horizon. In the end, it’s the Hyuuga girl’s early morning watch that begets the first signs of foreign shinobi. You ‘wake up’ immediately, and order the girl to awaken her teammates while you approach the shinobi in question.Four of them, all from Suna. Three genin, and one jounin, judging from the respective ages. Similar in structure to your own team. You examined them all in detail. The children were unknown to you. The red-haired brat seemed the most dangerous of the brats, though, given the mild murderous aura lifting off of him. And the hints of fresh blood on his trousers. Blood that wasn’t his, given his total lack of injury. His teammates were unremarkable in comparison. The jounin was one you recognized from the Third Great Ninja War, named Baki you think. He was only a chunin then, so you guess he must have been promoted sometime since then. You and Baki step onto the bridge simultaneously. He gives a hand signal to his team, ordering them to stop and stay off of the bridge. You do the same to your own groggy genin, and that’s when the negotiations begin.“Where is the prisoner?”“Hold on a moment. Your name is Baki, correct?”“Yes. Have we met?”“I believe so. Baki, I was told that there would be a team from Tanigakure here to supervise the exchange. But here we are, without any Tani shinobi in sight. And with one of your genin displaying fresh blood on his trousers. Why is that?”“Tani is not the most competent at times. As for the blood, we had a mission in this area prior to this one. We completed this mission just before coming here.”“I see.”You consider that for a moment. If that was the case, why did only one of his genin have blood on them? You don’t remember much about Baki, but you do recall his wind blades. Not exactly a ranged attack, so he’d certainly be splattered in some blood himself. Maybe his other two genin were ranged combatants, and he had left the fighting up to them and the red-haired brat? To test them, maybe? Who knows. That being said, you did get the feeling something was a bit off.You take a closer look at his genin. The red-haired brat had the character for ‘Love’ on his forehead for some reason. His eyes indicated severe insomnia and an almost disturbing lack of emotion. Given the fan on the back of the blonde girl and the wrapped-up piece of equipment on the back of the boy wearing…makeup…you had guessed correctly that they were both ranged fighters. The former likely specialized in utilizing ranged wind jutsu with her fan, the latter with the Suna-specific art of puppet mastery. That wasn’t what really struck you about them, though. What struck you about them was their body language towards the red-haired brat. They seemed hesitant to be near him, actively fearful even.
>>1849230>>1849232“Are you going to deliver the prisoner to us? Or are you just going to keep staring?”“I’m considering both options. The parameters of my mission required that there be a team from Tani to supervise the exchange. There is no team from Tani to supervise the exchange. Can you confirm your identities?”Baki tosses you a scroll. Sure enough, it has the proper seal. Scrolls, however, could be stolen. Hmm…>Hand the prisoner over. There’s no point in starting an international incident and possible war with Suna just because Tani is too stupid to get their shinobi here in a timely manner.>Keep the prisoner. There’s something fishy about this whole thing, and just because you recognize Baki doesn’t mean that there isn’t some form of deception going on here.Sorry for the wait, I had to go do something.
>>1849241>keep the prisoner. theres something fishy here
>>1849241Fuck it.>Keep the prisoner. There’s something fishy about this whole thing, and just because you recognize Baki doesn’t mean that there isn’t some form of deception going on here.>"Tani were supposed to supervise, so we're waiting on them. Not about to half ass this just because they're late."
>>1849232>Keep the prisoner. There’s something fishy about this whole thing, and just because you recognize Baki doesn’t mean that there isn’t some form of deception going on here.
>>1849241Hand the prisoner over. There’s no point in starting an international incident and possible war with Suna just because Tani is too stupid to get their shinobi here in a timely manner.
>>1849241>>Keep the prisoner.
>>1849241>Keep the prisoner. There’s something fishy about this whole thing, and just because you recognize Baki doesn’t mean that there isn’t some form of deception going on here.
FYI, I'm not worried about us dealing with Gaara, we're a fucking Jounin, with access to the Gates, I'm worried he'll fuck up our team though, or go full retard and kill the prisoner.
>>1849248>>1849249>>1849252>>1849257>>1849262Keeping the prisoner it is. Writing.
>>1849267Fucking up ong team may be a good thing, would give them a drive to get stronger
>>1849278I mean... not if he straight up sand coffins them
>>1849278They'll be dead.
>>1849295Ehh, if they can't handle a little sand coffin the youngins were meant to die I say.
>>1849302Right, back in my day we used to have to sand coffin every morning before breakfast and every night before bed!
>>1849310We were thankful to be able to experience the sand coffins. Kids now a days with there "friends" and "medical assistance" are just waiting to die.
>>1849269“I’m sorry, but we’re going to wait for the Tani shinobi to arrive. If that’s alright with you, Baki?”It is then that the most curious thing happens. Baki turns around, looking at the red-haired brat on his team. The red-haired brat stares at him wordlessly. Then he turns back towards you.“It…it is not.”“I see. Why not?”“I am not at liberty to disclose that.”“Oh. Village secrets. I understand. Still, we’ll have to wait for the team from Tani. Unless you intend to claim the prisoner by force?”“If I have to. It doesn’t have to come to that, though. Wouldn’t you agree?”“It doesn’t. If you wait for the team from Tani, then it doesn’t.”The two of you stare at each other for several moments. He breaks off first, sighing heavily and turning back towards his team.“Temari, Kankuro…Gaara. We shall wait here for the team from Tani to arrive.”The red-haired brat doesn’t seem pleased with that, looking up at the jounin with…something. You couldn’t tell if it was disdain or anger, truth be told. Or both. Can't forget about both. The brat was hard to read.“Sensei,” says the blonde girl, “Are you sure that’s…going to be okay?”She looks towards the red-haired brat, who doesn’t turn his own attention away from Baki. You feel a flash of killing intent, though it subsides after a few seconds. What the hell was up with this kid? His teammates are terrified of him, his sensei is terrified of him, and frankly you’re starting to get a bit unnerved at the situation yourself. That’s when you feel another flash of killing intent.“Kirai-sensei!” shouts the dog boy. “The prisoner!”You turn back, only to see that the prisoner is being surrounded by some form of sand. The hell? It must be controlled by the brat somehow. “Sabaku Kyuu,” says the red-haired brat, as the prisoner is surrounded by Sand. “Sabaku-” Shit, whatever he’s about to do you don’t like it.>Attempt to break the prisoner out of the Sand Coffin.>Fuck it, the prisoner is probably already doomed. Focus on preparing your genin for a fight.
>>1849310And you had to make it yourself, with your own sand ground by hand from rocks. Not like today, with some generous Suna brat coming round do give you one from fresh desert sand. Luxury.
>>1849320>fuck it, prepare for the fightwe definetely will need to use the gates, but i doubt they have a chance against us
>>1849320>>Attempt to break the prisoner out of the Sand Coffin.
>>1849320>>Attempt to break the prisoner out of the Sand Coffin.Nope,we aren't giving up this mission being already pretty short on money.
>>1849320>>Fuck it, the prisoner is probably already doomed. Focus on preparing your genin for a fight.
>>1849320>>Attempt to break the prisoner out of the Sand Coffin.Activate that first gate nigga
>>1849320>Attempt to break the prisoner out of the Sand CoffinGaara isn't stealing our goddamn paycheck
>>1849320>Attempt to break the prisoner out of the Sand Coffin.The red-haired brat is asking for a forehead poke.
>>1849325>>1849329>>1849337>>1849342>>1849345>>1849351>>1849356Saving the prisoner. Writing.
>>1849356Honestly, with his armor and sand, it'd probably take 2 or 3.
>>1849362With or without the gates?
>>1849362So it's the reverse of the hellspear the third raikage used in that more fingers = more power
>>18493621st gate may kill him so like 2 hits
>>1849358The sand is moving fast, giving you only a brief opportunity to save the prisoner.“Kaimon, OPEN!”With the fresh burst of speed given to you by the first gate, you smash a kick directly into the sand coffin. It doesn’t budge, the Sand merely reforming itself and making its way up your leg. Shit, he’s going to crush your leg alongside the prisoner if you don’t do something, and quick. Thinking to yourself for a moment, the answer becomes obvious.“Kyumon, OPEN!”The second gate allows you to effortlessly break free of the coffin. You utilize the moment this gives you to swing in mid-air and unleash another kick into the coffin, this time shattering it and freeing the prisoner. You catch him as you land. The prisoner, now very much awake, begins screaming frantically. You give a swift forehead poke to shut him up, then toss him, chair and all, towards the Hyuuga.“Team 8. This battle is probably not safe for mere genin. Bring the prisoner back to the outpost as fast as possible. NOW!”They don’t bother arguing, rushing off towards the direction you came. Baki scowls.“Temari, Kankuro, pursue them! I’ll stay with Gaara!”“I’m afraid that’s not going to happen,” you say, and launch yourself towards the already moving genin.Your first kick hits the puppet-master in the chest, but the sound that emerges is not bone breaking. Wood? Frowning, you flip and kick downwards towards his sheathed puppet, and this time the sound is, in fact, that of bone breaking. Clever trick. Not clever enough. You easily dodge the multiple wind blasts the girl sends your way to defend her teammate. Then, just as she unleashes another blast, you smile.“Katon: Goukakyuu no jutsu!”Her smirk clearly indicates that she thinks you’ve made a mistake. The wind blast will empower the fireball, causing it to engulf you entirely. Or at least, that’s what it would have done if you hadn’t used the fireball as cover for a substitution jutsu. When she suddenly finds herself on the receiving end of the expanded fireball, you rejoice in the fact that you’ll have added another kill to your count. She just starts screaming.Of course, then the annoying sand shows up again. It pushes her out of the way, knocking her into a tree and likely breaking several of her bones in the process. You are not sure if that was to save her, or merely to get her out of the way. Well, no matter the particulars, she’s managed to avoid dying today. Perhaps it was for the better. Nah.The red-haired brat marches right through the fireball, apparently not sustaining any damage whatsoever. It’s then that you notice Baki coming up from behind you, brandishing his wind blades.
>>1849424>Leap into the air and unleash fire jutsu down on them. With the second gate open, you should be able to leap pretty damn high, so it’s doubtful that they’ll be able to get you up there. Though considering the red-haired brat’s durability, this will likely do damage to Baki only.>Fuck Baki, the red-haired brat is clearly the threat here. Attempt a Dynamic Entry to his face.>Screw this, catch up to your genin and rush back to the outpost on your gates-enhanced legs.
>>1849424>>Fuck Baki, the red-haired brat is clearly the threat here. Attempt a Dynamic Entry to his face.
>>1849426>>Leap into the air and unleash fire jutsu down on them. With the second gate open, you should be able to leap pretty damn high, so it’s doubtful that they’ll be able to get you up there. Though considering the red-haired brat’s durability, this will likely do damage to Baki only.
>>1849431>fuck baki, the red haired brat is the threat here
>>1849426>Fuck Baki, the red-haired brat is clearly the threat here. Attempt a Dynamic Entry to his face.Gaara will get in the way too much, we need to take him out
>>1849426>Fuck Baki, the red-haired brat is clearly the threat here. Attempt a Dynamic Entry to his face.
>>1849431>>1849440>>1849466>>1849467Dynamic Entrying GaaraWriting
>>1849471Holy fuckShit is seriously about to hit the fan
>>1849471“Dynamic ENTRY!”The force of your kick as you launch yourself forward, enhanced by the power of the second gate, generates enough wind behind you to knock Baki down. Sand swirls around your body as its launched towards the red-haired brat, but your speed is far too great for it to provide a legitimate threat. You can actually see the surprise on the brat’s face just before your foot slams directly into his cheek. The impact sends him careening backwards, but you don’t let up. Instead, you grab his ankle as his body is still in mid-air and then slam him into the ground.He’s starting to hyperventilate, and his face is…cracking. Into sand. Is his entire body coated with the stuff as some sort of protective measure? Shit. It’s possible that you would need the third gate to actually kill him, and you’d-Your thoughts are interrupted by the brat.“YES, YES, HELP ME PROVE MY EXISTENCE!”The shout is accompanied by sand blasts aimed in a circular formation around you. You jump into the air to dodge, but they follow you upwards. Furthermore, you can see Baki still on the ground preparing some sort of wind jutsu to aim at you. And apparently the red-haired brat's teammates have left while you were distracted, and are probably pursuing your own students now. Fucking great.>Open up the third gate and slam directly down onto the red-haired brat with as much force as you can muster. If you’re lucky, this should kill him in one blow. Baki will be easily dispatched afterwards, and then you can pursue the other Suna genin. This will likely force your own genin to escort you to the nearest hospital afterwards, though, as the more gates you use the further the strain on your body.>Sand can be made into glass, right? Launch the largest fireball you can downwards, hopefully repelling or blocking the sand. This will hopefully give you the time to Dynamic Entry Baki, which should kill him in your current state.
>>1849501>open up gate 3
>>1849501>>Sand can be made into glass, right? Launch the largest fireball you can downwards, hopefully repelling or blocking the sand. This will hopefully give you the time to Dynamic Entry Baki, which should kill him in your current state.
>>1849501Fireball, but use the wind jutsu to give you an advantage against the sand, letting it whip up and spurr the intensity of the flame.
>>1849501>Sand can be made into glass, right? Launch the largest fireball you can downwards, hopefully repelling or blocking the sand. This will hopefully give you the time to Dynamic Entry Baki, which should kill him in your current state.

>>1849509>>1849513>>1849514>>1849515>>1849519>>1849520Fireball jutsu+dynamic entry on Baki. Writing.
God dammit Gaara stop being a shit already.
>>1849534>gaara>not being a shitIn other news this may jump start the war with the sand
>>1849543if we manage to kill or seriously injure gaara, that war will be over instantly
>>1849545ThisThe tailed beast going on a rampage in the middle of the Leaf was literally the only thing they could have done to win them a warBut even then Guy or somebody would have eventually killed Gaara and the war would be won
>>1849543Well at least Baki won't use Orochimaru to invade the leaf during the chuunin exams.
>>1849545But it also releases a giant sand demon
>>1849523“Katon: Goukakyuu no jutsu!”The fireball slams into the sand, which recoils for just long enough that you’re able to aerially spin and redirect your course straight at Baki. His senses are barely fast enough to even perceive your speed, his eyes widening just a moment too late. Your leg turns his head into a bloody pulp, scattering brains as far as the river. Smiling, you turn around to face the red-haired brat.The sand appears to be gathering around his right arm, forming into some kind of clawed hand. You think it’s strange at first, but that’s when you feel the chakra. You are no sensor, and as such normal chakra was imperceptible to you. This, however, was something so very different from normal chakra that if it weren’t for your years of experience, it likely would have provoked fear in you. As it is, it did rile your nerves quite a bit.Memories hit you like a flood. You were part of a whole platoon, under the command of an experienced jounin. As a newly promoted chunin, you were eager to get your hands bloody. Traveling near Amegakure, a village that was being regularly devastated by the conflict of the Second Great Ninja War, you were ordered to find and capture a jinchuuriki. His name was Roshi, the host of the Yonbi. His strength had been the end of many of Iwa’s enemies, and Konoha was eager to send an assassination squad after him. Given his power, they sent a platoon. Your platoon.You can still remember the hateful aura of the chakra, coating the whole area with malice. The scent of lava searing human flesh. The screams of fear as experienced shinobi were tossed aside and murdered with inhuman brutality. You and a few others managed to escape, but the rest were slaughtered. The few that escaped with you would die later of the injuries and burns he had inflicted anyway, leaving you as the only survivor of the whole affair.This chakra was not the Yonbi’s. It must be the Ichibi’s, that being the bijuu owned by Sunagakure. Shit.>Flee and save your brats. You do not want to deal with a jinchuuriki right now, and you aren’t sure how they’ll handle the Suna genin sent after them. Worst case scenario, they are outmatched and they all die, and that is an outcome you cannot allow.>You have to take out the jinchuuriki. You don’t like it, but you’ll keep opening the gates until you’re able to match his strength, and then surpass his strength, and then defeat him. The problem is, you have no idea how many gates this will take, and your brats' lives could be on the line here.
>>1849501>>1849510>>1849523Late, but support.Are write-ins allowed?
>>1849510>>1849574Write-ins are allowed but with the gates your speed was enough to straight up murder Baki before he got the jutsu off, thus rendering this suggestion irrelevant.
>>1849573>You have to take out the jinchuuriki. You don’t like it, but you’ll keep opening the gates until you’re able to match his strength, and then surpass his strength, and then defeat him. The problem is, you have no idea how many gates this will take, and your brats' lives could be on the line here.Killing the Jinchuuriki will be more than a justification for our squad getting a bit fucked up, i trust the 3 of them can handle it, especially as canon shino can beat kankuro at some point
>We just killed BakiWew
>>1849573>>Flee and save your brats. You do not want to deal with a jinchuuriki right now, and you aren’t sure how they’ll handle the Suna genin sent after them.

Maybe you should add write-ins as a prompt option so we'll know it's available.

>>1849586>>1849587>>1849588>>1849590>>1849597Fleeing and saving the brats. They better be grateful. Writing.
>>1849586>>1849606>>1849592Probably. Maybe we could try giving his legs a quick kick to cripple him for a while?>>1848782Have we finished our lightning nature chakra training yet?
>>1849621Your lightning chakra training is almost complete. You'll be able to learn the lightning jutsu fairly easily afterwards. For now, though, you are stuck with fire jutsu only.
>>1849606>>1849606So, anyone up for explaining what that kid was and that if he is in the exam to quite?"You may be annoying brats but you are my annoying brats."
>>1849658Of course holding information from our team is the last thing we should do.
>>1849573>The few that escaped with you would die later of the injuries and burns he had inflicted anyway, leaving you as the only survivor of the whole affair.>When someone brings up Kirai's war memories.>"You weren't there man... you weren't there man.">>1849626Damn. We can't taze Gaara before leaving, what a disappointment.>>1849658>>1849667Yep.
>Flee and save your brats. You do not want to deal with a jinchuuriki right now, and you aren’t sure how they’ll handle the Suna genin sent after them. Worst case scenario, they are outmatched and they all die, and that is an outcome you cannot allow
>>1849606No. Fuck this. You are not fighting a literal demon right now, not when you have the brats to worry about. You think of a way to extract yourself from this situation, and you come up with it rather easily.You launch yourself at him, sweeping his legs and causing him to trip. While he’s confused, you create an illusory clone and then start running full speed in the opposite direction. Clearly fooled due to his bloodlust clouding his vision, he begins his attempts to assault the clone, giving you a window to escape. With the second gate active, you easily catch up to the Suna genin, who are themselves catching up to your own genin. It’s a good thing you removed their weights and injured the Suna genin, otherwise they may have been caught by now. The Suna genin do not notice you in time, allowing you to grab the both of them and sling them over your shoulders. You rush towards your brats, and begin fleeing with them.“Listen up, I have two hostages with me right now-”The blonde girl looks like she’s going to say something, which reminds you to deliver swift forehead pokes to her and her teammate.“Alright, let’s try that again. I have two hostages with me right now, and I’m hoping that their parents are important enough in Suna that war will be avoided. We’ll be taking them back to the Land of Fire at full speed. Do you understand?”Your genin do not argue. Though you pretty much expected that, as they had no idea what was really going on. “One more thing,” you say, “Seimon, OPEN! This is the third gate. Using it will mean I’ll have to be rushed to a hospital, but for now, hop on my shoulders. We need to get back to Konoha, and it needs to be right fucking now.”“B-but sensei, I’m carrying the priso-”“Do I look like I give a shit, Hyuuga?” you say this knowing your skin currently looks blood red. “Just carry him while I’m carrying you. Now fucking get on.”The brats sense your lack of patience and quickly get on you. It’s time to fucking run.The Tani squad you run past are shocked at your speed and unable to stop you. You feel sorry for the poor fuckers that are heading in the direction of the jinchuuriki, but you have to push on. The Land of Fire’s border outposts are rushed past in an instant. Multiple Konoha patrols notice you and are blown away by the wind generated by your speed. Without their physical conditioning training, you are pretty sure that the brats would be unable to hold on. You’re even pretty sure that the bug brat nearly fell off several times, and only continued holding on due to the dog boy’s aid. It takes you nearly a full day of running before you reach the village.
>>1849710You leap over Konoha’s walls, and the ANBU patrols that immediately set upon you are totally unable to stop you as you rush towards the Hokage’s office full speed, breaking down the door with a Dynamic Entry. The Hokage himself has noticed you, as his Hokage garb is already tossed aside in favor of his black battle gear. When he sees it’s you, he drops his guard only slightly, but it gives you the reprieve needed to drop your genin and the captured Suna shinobi in one massive clump of adolescents and deactivate the third gate.You pant, falling to the ground in exhaustion. “Kirai? What happened?”You muster the energy to look up.“Shit happened. Lots and lots of shit.”He stares at you questioningly, and the ANBU following you manage to catch up, apprehending you forcibly.“What happened, exactly?” the Hokage asks, clearly not in the mood for your jokes.“One of the Suna genin, apparently a jinchuuriki, assaulted the prisoner after I refused to hand him over until the Tani squad arrived. He subsequently assaulted me and my genin team, alongside the rest of his squad. His two teammates are here as hostages, their jounin instructor was killed by me during the fight. I ran here to deliver the news as soon as possible.”You can’t hear what the Hokage says next, as by the time he says it you are unconscious.
>>1849710>>1849720When you next awake, it is in a hospital bed. Konoha’s hospital is a place that any career shinobi eventually becomes familiar with, and you are certainly no exception. You’ve been here more times than you could ever possibly remember. This time is a little different, however, as you notice that someone has actually left flowers and a note by your bedside.Get Well, Sensei -HinataWho was Hinata, again? You figure it must be either the bug brat or the Hyuuga girl. The dog boy would probably not give you flowers. Anyway, this is the first time you can recall anyone ever bringing you any gifts or visiting your bedside while you were in the hospital. You’d have to awkwardly thank whichever one of the brats was Hinata for this later, or, alternatively, avoid the subject entirely. You preferred the latter, really.You test your strength, and you can feel the injuries from using the gates have been mostly healed. Hmm…>Get out of bed, hop out the window, and try to find out what the hell has happened since you became unconscious. Has war broken out?>Stay in bed for now. You’ll need a bit more rest to be fully healed, and it’s comfortable enough.
>>1849724>>Stay in bed for now. You’ll need a bit more rest to be fully healed, and it’s comfortable enough.The problem has been sufficiently caused. Our role is done.Let other people deal with it.
>>1849724>Stay in bed for now. You’ll need a bit more rest to be fully healed, and it’s comfortable enough.>Make enough noise to get a nurse over here and ask questions.
>>1849724>Stay in bed for now. You’ll need a bit more rest to be fully healed, and it’s comfortable enough.
>>1849724>>Stay in bed for now. You’ll need a bit more rest to be fully healed, and it’s comfortable enough.We can ask about what happens next when we recover. Also lets check if we have dicks drawn on our face or something like that.
>>1849733>>1849736>>1849737>>1849741>>1849749Alright, staying in bed.
>>1849763You decide that it is probably best to just wait and relax. After all, you aren’t dead, so you probably aren’t going to be executed. Yet. That means they have enough confidence in your story that a war might be going on, but it also means you are temporarily safe. You close your eyes and get some rest.The next time you wake up, it’s because someone has knocked you in the side of the head.Your eyes open, and you can see it was the dog boy. It’s nighttime, now, and he’s glaring at you. His mother off to the side, her hand on his shoulder. Ah, she’s forcing him to be here. Great. You really needed to be interacting with one of your brats when you are trying to relax.“Hey, asshole-”Tsume slams him in the back of the head. It’s just enough to chastise him, so when he starts talking once more it is in a considerably more polite tone.“Sorry. Hey, Kirai-sensei. Mom wants me to thank you for saving our lives and stuff.”You look at Tsume, who nods gravely.“Facing a jinchuuriki in the field, huh? Kiba could have died. You too, actually.”You nod yourself.“Yes. I am mostly fine, though. I fled when he started unleashing his demonic chakra. Tell me, how is the state of things at present?”“Suna is outraged that you kidnapped the Kazekage’s kids.”“I what?”“Kidnapped the Kazekage’s kids. The brats you picked up were his kids. Good job by the way, it might have come to war without those brats being hostages.”“I…okay. I suppose that is good. How close is it coming to war, anyway?”“Very close. You want the details, you’d have to ask the Hokage. The exact negotiations with Suna are being kept secret for the most part. One more thing. Your hospital room is being guarded by ANBU. You are not allowed to leave at present. And no one is allowed to visit you for more than two minutes.”Ah. So perhaps you were to be a sacrificial lamb, then? Given to Suna to be executed by them as recompense for the killing of their own jounin? Similar to what happened during the Hyuuga incident. You would voice your suspicions, but that wouldn’t be very wise. And Tsume likely understands the parallels anyway. Probably why she brought her bratty son along, so he could say goodbye to his sensei one last time.Still, you should probably think of asking something before they are asked to leave by the ANBU. You have enough time for one question, most likely.>How long have I been out?>How is Team 8? Are they also being held responsible for what happened during the mission?>What happened with the jinchuuriki? Was he retrieved by Suna?>Something else?
>>1849797>How is Team 8? Are they also being held responsible for what happened during the mission?
>>1849797>>How is Team 8? Are they also being held responsible for what happened during the mission?
>>1849797>>How is Team 8? Are they also being held responsible for what happened during the mission?I think the Kazekage could control Gaara, so assuming Snek hasn't replaced him yet Gaara should have been recovered.
>>1849807>>1849809>>1849815>>1849820>>1849822>>1849823Asking about Team 8. Writing.
>>1849797>How is Team 8? Are they also being held responsible for what happened during the mission?I just can't wrap my head around Gaara being sent on a mission that would involve not killing forgin shinobi
>>1849827That's why he was upset.
>>1849827Probably assumed we wouldn't make an issue of it considering it was a simple prisoner exchange. Had everything gone well we'd only be in contact with them for a few minutes. From there, what they did with the prisoner wouldn't be our problem
>>1849826“I see your son is here. How is he and the rest of the team? They aren’t being held accountable for anything that happened during the mission, correct?”“No, they’re fine. The Hyuuga and Aburame even visited you a few times. And they didn’t need forcing, like Kiba here. They’re all clan kids so the Hokage’s doing everything he can for them in the negotiations. They weren’t involved in the killing of that Suna jounin anyway, so the Kazekage doesn’t care much.”“The Kazekage is here personally?”“No, but he’s-”An ANBU cuts her off by grabbing her and dog boy, then using a shunshin to transport them out through the window. He returns as swiftly as he left, nods at you, then makes once again towards his post. Well, now you were in the dark again. Great. You consider what would happen if you were actually slated to be executed by Suna. Perhaps you’d be next to that prisoner you tried to save. Next on the chopping block. You consider if your life was worth saving that idiot, and quickly come to the conclusion that it wasn’t. Damn it.Best to calm the nerves. You get off of your bed, then begin exercising. Your body is mostly recovered, but you have no idea how long you’d been unconscious or how much your muscles had atrophied from overusing the third gate and not exercising during that period. You do everything that you are able to given the limitations of the hospital room, and the nurses that come and bring you food don’t bother to stop you. You’re a ninja, after all, so they have some pretty good reasons not to object. By the time that you’ve exercised to your satisfaction, it is a new day, with the morning sun shining brightly into the room.The door opens, but this time it is not a nurse. Rather, it is the Third Hokage. Accompanied by an ANBU escort. Well, it looked like your time was up.“Kirai Kodomo.”You stare at him.“The investigation into the occurrences in the Land of Rivers is complete, as are the negotiations with the Kazekage.”This is it. You don’t believe in any gods, but you do consider praying.“You are free to leave as soon as you are recovered.”“What?”“Surprised, are you? The jinchuuriki was retrieved this morning. He killed several dozen shinobi of Tanigakure, and Suna is now intentionally trying to downplay this incident. Therefore, you are free to leave.”“Several dozen? Doesn’t Tanigakure only have about 150 ninja?”“Yes. I believe he killed about 40% of their total shinobi.”“And they aren’t at war with Suna?”“No,” he says, sighing.Well, guess that’s how it has to be when you are the bitch of Leaf and Sand. They would be crushed if they even tried to resist the combined decision of Konoha and Suna. At least you weren’t going to die.>Updates end for nowSorry, I have to go somewhere. Updates resume Monday.
>>1849886Man, sucks to be Tani. Ah, well, at least we're still awesome.
>>1849886Why would we think river would go to war they lost almost half their ninja it would be utterly retarded to try and fight a war after that
>>1849909People get emotional and shit? People also hate looking weak. But yeah it'd be a pretty catastrophically dumb idea
>>1849827>>1849830>>1849831Gaara and his team were in the area to kill some bandits. They were the nearest team when the prisoner was captured, so they were ordered to do the exchange and allow Gaara to execute him instantly. Gaara had actually slaughtered the bandits on the previous mission when they arrived to the prisoner exhange, which is why he was a bit bloodlusted and wanted to execute the prisoner immediately. Baki knew this, which is why he wanted to get the prisoner right away as well. Ironically, nothing would have gone wrong if you had just handed him over right away, but it turned out fun this way besides.Oh, and for anyone who is curious about roads not trekked With regards to the Land of Mountains mission, the Land of Mountains is right next to the Land of Lightning and you would have dealt with Kumo sending a jounin to kidnap HinataPhoneposting so different ID
I never understood why Konoha killed one of its shinobi to apologize to the nation that tried to kidnap a clan heir during negotiations i mean that right there is why I'm pro Danzo
>>1849886I mean, they're in a very good place for the transportation of goods right? If someone set up a company there with good enough roads they could become a pretty successful merchant by advantage of the location.Kind of like how if Gato wasn't retarded and actually taken advantage of the trade hub Wave would've become with the bridge.
>>1849921>Oh, and for anyone who is curious about roads not trekked With regards to the Land of Mountains mission, the Land of Mountains is right next to the Land of Lightning and you would have dealt with Kumo sending a jounin to kidnap HinataThat would have been pretty cool to deal with
>>1849935The Cloud was there under the guise of a diplomatic mission, and there was no proof he tried to kidnap Hinata. I outside observers, it looked like the ninja was killed for no reason.
>>1849886Welp, the mission was a disaster and several people died. Fuck.
>>1849953non of them people we give a shit about tho
>>1849953We are alive and so is our team time to train our brats to fight a jinchuriki.
>>1849886Did I say Monday? I meant tomorrow, Saturday. I forgot that it was Friday, and thought it was Saturday instead, and since I have something to do on Sunday...yeah, I'm retarded so sorry.
>>1849953>Welp, the mission was a disaster and several people died. Fuck.At least we got some team bonding?
>>1849973So are we going to train them even harder so that we don't have to go through the trouble of saving them in the future?
>>1849973well Shinos normal bugs are useless gentle fist is not that good against normal jinchuriki nonetheless Gaara so Kibas our best bet
>>1849953But we literally forced out the only card suna hasWe can prepare for TWO lose jinchuuriki at the exams
>>1849983Of course fucking brats.>>1849990Kiba it is.
>>1850108WellWe have to be prepared for sauce,garaa, and whateass monster gai pulls out his ass
>>1849973How about we train them to run away from jinchuriki? Genin shouldn't fight jinchuriki unless they're also jinchuriki, and Kiba needs to learn to think things through. They can be Big Damn Heroes when they're crotchety old jounin like us.
Am I correct in seeing that the only name Kirai learned was Akamaru's? Poor Kiba.
>>1850274exept Kiirai thinks Hinata wants to off Naruto
>>1850744Maybe he's a secretly a dog person. Or else it is indeed weird that the only name he bothers to learn is the one of the dog
>>1850755So we teach her hyoer chakra conservation and make sure that her clan teaches her a shit ton of seals while making sure she fights with a clear mindThe most important things to do when fighting jinchuuriki is stamina, a plan,and a way to actually beat the thing
>>1850800Would naruto's tailed beast be harder of easier to beat than Gaara's? I didn't go very far into naruto, so the only memories i had about them is that gaara has bullshit auto-defenses and that sand is one hell of a weapon product of a partial possession or something.
>>1850874Nart has bullshit reserves of infinite chakra and can never have them cut off because he throws a hissy fit and the beast pushes the chakra through. Only way to beat Nart of KO him almost immediately before he can get into his "Believe it" or "My Ninja Way" mode/rant. Just make sure you do it before clones and then its smash the crown of his skull hard enough to make him forget his own fucking name and have him black out.
>>1850885Damn, how there was supposed to be any tension if he was effectively invincible? My memories of him are just the ones of some brat who had unusually high chakra levels but that also (at least during his childhood) had shit chakra control and ate through his reserves like if there's no tomorrow. I have read he eventually gets bullshit tier with sage modes and stuff, but you make it sound that even if he didn't have that OP shit, he would be invincible the moment he's pushed into possession mode
>>1850898Yeah. That's one of the problems with Nalt. The world is pretty interesting though.
>>1850898yeah pretty much almost every fight early game and a bit mid game is won because he is so bad the fox just takes over. he himself is actually a shit ninja as the shadow clone thing is only because "muh infinite chakra" thanks to foxy and throw more rasengan at it.
>>1850911Shit, that sucks, a lot. I feel like it was the right choice to drop the show when I did, although I also agree with what >>1850908 said. The premise had potential, but its misuse by the author drove me into abandoning it. Fortunately, NOIP is doing a great job using the setting to great success and live up to its potentialAnd I think i've read some rasenmemes before, something about how pretty much several power ups were just the rasengan, but stronger.
>>1850932The first few arcs set up something cool then they went ahead and abandoned their own rules and just hoped no one would say anything. Alongside making certain characters OP as shit cos the author cant stop sucking their dick like Minato and Itachi
To weigh in on all this discussion of Naruto, I feel it is important to note a couple of things. First of all, the stuff about Naruto being invincible is false. In Shippuden, the seal begins to weaken and strengthen his connection to the Kyuubi. Prior to that, he would not be able to summon enough of the Kyuubi's chakra to prevent himself from dying all the time, so there is still tension retrospectively. Remember that Sasuke had him knocked unconscious and could have killed him at the end of their first fight in the valley.That being said, I do have my own host of gripes with the series. In particular, Kaguya in general, as well as the bullshit regarding transmigation. If you don't know what I'm referring to, good for you. Like all shonen series, it also has a problem with utilizing its full cast of characters with interesting abilities and powers and instead focusing on a few gimmicky ones in the main cast. In my mind, the golden age of Naruto was everything from the start of the Chunin Exams until the end of the Sasuke Retrieval Arc. There's still a lot of enjoyable stuff in Shippuden (dunno about the fillers, I read the manga and only watched the anime afterwards so I was able to intentionally avoid it), but the overall plotline begins to suffer and side characters are shafted in favor of less interesting alternatives. For example, I cannot remember a single fight that characters like Neji or Lee had in Shippuden outside of filler. Oh, and when they fought themselves.
>>1850946I hope that NOIP really tones down some of the powercreep. I've read that endgame naruto gets into dragon ball territory with how bullshit their powerlevels become, despite ninjas supposedly are about assassinations and stealth missions.Specially stop with the copycat eye power. I know it started as just a damn good tool to learn superfast ninjutsu used by other people, but judging by the shitton of uses it has in the wiki, it becomes pretty retarded in the kind of asspulls it can perform
I actually can't remember much from Naruto beyond Orochimaru assassinating the Third Hokage. Though, going off context, I'm assuming that this Baki bloke is a character on the show, and wasn't supposed to die at this point...So, how much can we fuck with the established timeline of the universe here? Obviously, anything that changes will effect everything that it would come to interact with or otherwise effect, which is taxing to write for, and will become even more straining as more changes are piled on...
>>1850960The Akatsuki death irked me in many ways, some were good others not so>ItachiLol I wanted to die and make you strong>KisameWent out like a boss actually no complaints>DeideraIm here so Sasuke can get a kill>Sasorii didnt actually dodge that attack because ive decided i want to die after all>HidanNIGGA YOU GOT PLAYED >Kakuzuomgosh look how strong the chosen one is>Konanyeah we dont really have a use for you anymore>Pain/Nagatoyou should have been the final boss Nigga, your fuckin dumb.>Zetsuyour twist is bad and you should feel bad>Obitoyou stupid, stupid, stupid fuck.
>>1850991Baki was Gaaras jonin instructed and killed a spy who was deathly ill and that's it
>>1850964With regards to powercreep, I'm keeping things canon but making sure everyone remains relevant. It'll only really become an issue a long time from now anyway.>>1850991You've already changed it in ways that I cannot reveal, but by quite a lot indeed. I'm trying to avoid giving characters too much plot armor, though I don't want to go too far into the 'everyone can die' mentality that things cease being fun. Since having fun is ultimately what questing is about and all that.>>1851009Yeah. My annoyance was that their ultimate goals were lame and edgy. Also that many of them were introduced purely so they could reveal all of their abilities and die in one arc. Black Zetsu is basically just a plot device because Kishimoto had no idea how to kill off Madara, who was a far better final villain than Kaguya. If it weren't for the blatant author favoritism towards the Uchiha as villains, I feel like a lot more would have been done with them.That being said, the Akatsuki ultimate jutsu in the Storm games is still badass.
>>1851046Have you considered having Naruto interacting with the MC for a "fellow orphan" arc?
>>1851169Throw in Kabuto and we'll be ballin'.I think we should bring the brats to the orphanage to help spruce it up a bit, if Kirai doesn't already do that once every couple of months himself.
>>1851046>author favoritism towards the UchihaWasn't it Kish's editors who stuck their fingers in and said "No, I get what your doing, but the Uchiha's though"?
Guys what if, like, instead of Orochimaru giving Sasuke the Mark, he gives it to Hinata.Because he wants big tits.
>>1851327But wasn't his whole regeneration/skincrawler thing for Sasuke just a ploy to get the Sharingan on himself?I mean yeah, big tits but how would he even know Hinata would get thicc?
Got some fanart I commission of Kirai, sorry if it's not what everyone was wanting I just had no idea what he looks like.
>>1851335Looks good to me
>>1851335Very noice, tho I thought he's supposed to be Veteren level of ninja on the likes of the Sanin?
>>1851576Went back and read the creation thread, states he was a Genin when the Sanin were doing their thing, that'd put him at like 12 or 13 then, Sanin had to be what, 18 or 19?So he's like in his mid-to-late 40's.
>>1851601And to be fair, 30 years of constant fighting is long enough to call someone a grizzled veteran in my book.
>>1851335That's pretty good IMO, I imagine him as a little more beefy and with a bit more salt/less pepper in his hair.
>>1851649Eh it was just a sketch with some color, I'll probably find some other dude willin' to draw and iron out the details with'em.
>>1849945Yeah and the Kids might have actually got to do something and get that sweet sweet XP
>>1849886>>1851046Taki is gonna send out Fu aren't they?Man, Jinchuuriki have such shitty lives....Let's get Kirai to Adopt/Kidnap Fu
>>1852019There's something I never understood about the tailed beast hosts. Probably (or not) the manga answered this question, but why most of the human hosts of those god-like being are treated like shit? One would think that giving a nice life to those cursed children would be better to make sure they are nice and never use their power for wrong, but at least from the two examples I remember, they were being constantly shitted on, as if those guys didn't think about the consequences of bullying somebody who could very likely harbor grudges against mankind itself and go berserk on their asses with their power.
On an unrelated note, has anyone noticed the trend with Naruto Quest MC's names? Kon, Takeshi, Tsuki, Kuro, and now we've got Kirai. It's like every MC's name starts with either a K or a T.
>>1852066But living nukes tho
>>1852076From what I remember, the only one that was even remotely treated well was Killer B and only because his father was Raikage when he was sealed as well as because his village realized that after 3 or so generations that maybe, perhaps, having some modicum of respect for a supernatural kaijuu demon was better than trying to break it to your will.
>>1852019I think you are misunderstanding. Tanigakure, the Village Hidden in the Valley, is the one that was just massacred. It is a hidden village lodged in between the Land of Fire and the Land of Wind that has nothing canon about them other than the name and thejr symbol, as they were never actually shown. Fuu is from Takigakure, the Village Hidden in the Waterfall.[Spoiler]But let us just say that the knowledge of their being a jinchuuriki genin from Suna has encouraged Taki to test their own weapon, so you are not wrong[/spoiler]>>1852066>>1852076>>1852081Jinchuuriki weren't treated badly so much as treated fearfully. When you look back at, for example, Gaara's childhood, he was not mistreated in any way. People were just scared shitless of him, which is traumatizing in a different way. The real problem is that the seal weakens do to strong emotion, so in order to actually use them as weapons the villages had to make seals that were intentionally weak and would make them unstable emotionally, or I guess prod them a bit to make them angry.
>>1852086Huh, fucked up that spoiler tag. Oh well, nothing I can do about that. You were going to find out soon anyway.
>>1851182The orphanage was an awful place to him. Remember how he got his nickname by being a surly bastard to the other children there?Why would he go back and spruce it up when he can train instead.
“Kirai-sensei. What exactly is a jinchuuriki?”You look at the bug brat. Actually, you look at all your brats, even the dog. It doesn’t seem like they’re concerned or anything, just legitimately curious. With the term being bandied about quite a bit due to their recent mission’s spectacular failure, you can understand why this would be the case. Well, time to make them concerned, then. Especially given the Hyuuga’s goal, it was imperative that they all understood what they were doing. You just wish the Academy had explained it to them so you didn’t have to bother doing it yourself.“A jinchuuriki is the power of a human sacrifice. You are familiar with the Kyuubi, the great fox demon that attacked our village when you were all still in diapers, yes?”“Indeed. He was defeated and killed by the Fourth Hokage.”“Right. Anyway, the Kyuubi is one of a series of bijuu, tailed beasts. Demons of incredible power composed of hateful chakra, these bijuu were considered valuable by the hidden villages. However, they were too powerful to control. So the villages began to seal them within humans. Human sacrifices. These people became weapons in the Great Ninja Wars, at the cost of their own humanity. The bijuu slowly ate away at their sanity, as the chakra of the tailed beast could only be brought forth by the emotional instability of the jinchuuriki.”“Holy shit,” says the dog boy, looking at you strangely, “and you actually fought one of those things?”“Yes. It’s not the first time. I suppose I should hope it’s the last. Truthfully, I escaped before he could release the full power of the tailed beast. His was the Ichibi, by the way, the one-tailed tanuki, the weakest of the beasts. The Kyuubi is the strongest.”“Is?” asks the bug brat. Clever little bastard, he is.“Was, sorry. He was our village’s tailed beast. We also utilized jinchuuriki, but never in battle, only as a method of sealing the tailed beast and protecting the village. That was the decision of the First Hokage, who had actually captured all of the tailed beasts himself and gifted them to other villages in the hopes that the mutually assured destruction using them would lead to would encourage peace between shinobi. It did not.”“That sounds…naïve,” says the bug brat.“Konoha was founded to create peace between the clans in the Land of Fire. The First believed he could copy this peace across the whole of the world. He had already done the seemingly impossible by uniting the Senju and Uchiha. Call it naïve if you wish, but the First did have some reason to think he could do it.”“I…think…”“Speak up, Hyuuga, I can’t hear you.”
>>1852121“I think…that it was…a noble goal. Do you think it will ever happen, sensei?”“World peace?”Sage of Six Paths, you hope it doesn’t. Then you’ll be out of a job.“No,” you say, “I don’t think it will ever happen.”“I see,” she says, eyes looking downward.Hmm. The Hyuuga appears to have hoped for a ‘yes’. Perhaps a bit naïve herself, then. Thankfully you can circumvent her normal peaceable nature by utilizing her hatred of the Kyuubi’s jinchuuriki, otherwise you’d really be worried about her lack of murderous desire. To that end, you pat her on the shoulder.“Cheer up. Once you accomplish your goal, you’ll be able to pursue whatever you want, world peace or whatever. That being said, you’ll need to work hard to accomplish it, okay?”“W-what?”“Don’t worry about it. Now it’s time for morning training, you slackers! And it’s time to get serious about it. The Chunin Exams are in two months. If you’ve hated the last month of training, then you are in for some real pain now. Your lives will be on the line then, if you choose to do it, and I’ll force you to do it anyway if you don’t want to, so…if you don’t want to die, you’ll have to work your hardest now. The Hokage has given us a six month suspension on C-rank missions, so all we’ll be doing is training and D-ranks and more training.”They groan. You smile.After morning training is complete, your shadow clone ushers them off for a D-rank while you start your own training.The piece of paper crumples. You can now form enough lightning chakra for Raiton: Sanda! Of course, you’ll need to track down Kakashi again so he can explain it to you, so you should probably go do that. Ceasing your exercises, you get up and start looking around.And looking. And looking. You can’t find him anywhere, actually, so you decide to break into his apartment again.The traps are new, but easily avoided. He’s not here, huh? He must be out on a C-rank with his own team, then. You’re sure his probably won’t go as out of control as yours did, though, and that’s probably for the best. What to do, then?>Track down someone else to teach you Raiton: Sanda. You can’t think of anyone in particular, but surely someone knows it, right?>You weren’t paid for that last C-rank, but all the D-ranks you’ve been doing have given you a considerable sum of cash. Since it’s getting late, you could go out and have some fun. And by ‘fun’, you mean alcohol.>Go track down one of your fellow jounin-sensei for a chat. You should probably find out whose sending their genin into the Chunin Exams.
>>1852086Whoops. Apologies. I misread Tani as Taki >///<There was only a letter difference between the two
>>1852122>>Go track down one of your fellow jounin-sensei for a chat. You should probably find out whose sending their genin into the Chunin Exams.I think we're still due a chat with Asuma.
>>1852122>Go track down one of your fellow jounin-sensei for a chat. You should probably find out whose sending their genin into the Chunin Exams.
>>1852122>Go track down one of your fellow jounin-sensei for a chat. You should probably find out whose sending their genin into the Chunin Exams.Might be able to find someone to teach us Raiton along the way.
>>1852122Can Kirai draw? If so>Draw Kakashi and Asuma having naked gay sex on every available space in his apartment>Track down someone else to teach you Raiton: Sanda. You can’t think of anyone in particular, but surely someone knows it, right?I think op said we were close to finishing this
>>1852122>>Track down someone else to teach you Raiton: Sanda. You can’t think of anyone in particular, but surely someone knows it, right?Do you have a twitter or would consider getting one?
>>1852122>>Go track down one of your fellow jounin-sensei for a chat. You should probably find out whose sending their genin into the Chunin Exams.
>>1852131>>1852133>>1852134>>1852153>>1852159Alright, tracking down another jounin-sensei it is. Writing.
>>1852162Considering that the brats will be in the Chunin Exams in a couple of months, you figure that finding out what the competition is like will help them immensely. To that end, you’ll have to track down another jounin-sensei and find out if they’re entering their genin in the exams. Who, though? Kakashi’s off, and the only other jounin-sensei you know are Gai and Asuma. A cursory check shows that neither are currently at their respective training grounds, so that’s out. Hmm…Your best bet is probably to just scour the village, searching for whoever you can find. Not the most efficient method, but you can cover a lot of ground quickly, so it shouldn’t be too difficult.Leaping around on rooftops comes as second nature to you, and feels great after all the time you spent cooped up in the hospital. You look around, but unfortunately cannot see anyone in the village itself. Instead, you decide to head for the village gates, hoping that one of them will return from a mission soon.Those two idiot gate guards, you forget their names, look at you strangely as you do push-ups on top of their office and stare straight ahead at oncoming traffic. They don’t question it because they don’t have a death wish, and so you are left alone for about an hour. Eventually, Gai comes streaming through the gates with his team in tow. “Kirai-san!”You try to think of why Gai seems annoyed with you, and then remember that the last time you saw each other you forcibly stripped him. Awkward.“Hey, it’s that guy!” says the girl. What was her name? Ten-something. You’ll find out if she proves impressive in the exams. She is Gai’s student, so she should, right?“You are the one who laid hands on Gai-sensei!” shouts the boy who looks just like his sensei.“Yeah, yeah. You’re the kid I nearly killed that one time. You doing okay?”“I am fine, you villain!”He does a pose in imitation of his teacher. This brat really needed to get a life, he seemed like he would follow his teacher into being known as some weird person that no one except possibly Kakashi liked too. Then again, you shouldn’t be talking. As far as you know, no one likes you at all. And you prefer it that way. It gives you more time for training and missions.You do notice that the Hyuuga brat glares at you, but he’s not as mouthy as his teammates. Yeah, you beat the crap of him as well. That was only about a month ago, it’s understandable that he’s holding a grudge but he should really get over it. C’mon, this is a ninja village, near-death experience should be valued for making the brats stronger. This is what was wrong with modern Konoha. You blame the Third Hokage’s senility.“What are you doing here?” asks Gai.“I was just training by the village gates. Hey, Gai, you’ve heard about the upcoming Chunin Exams, correct?”“Of course!”“I wanted to ask if your team would be entering. Mine are, so I wanted to spy on the competition.”
>>1852205If it were any shinobi other than Gai, you wouldn’t put it so bluntly. If this were Kakashi, for example, such a statement would provoke an eye smile and a snarky comment before he went back to reading his smut. Because this was Gai, however, all it provoked was booming laughter.“Haha! They are indeed!”You see, Gai would view the enemy having intelligence on his students as positive. It would give them more of a challenge.“Really? Are they ready for it?”“I should be asking you that question, Kirai-san! My own students are brimming with youth, but are yours truly prepared for the glorious challenges ahead of them?”“Probably. Enough not to die, anyway.”“Haha! That is enough!”You consider this. Three genin. You don’t recall their names, but you do have an idea of their skills. For the mini-me not imitating Gai’s taijutsu would be an impossibility. The question is, how skilled was he? Would Gai really teach a genin how to open the gates, for example? You know you would, but you were a bit of a special case. The girl you knew nothing about, other than the fact she could throw a lot of damn kunai. As for the Hyuuga brat…He might very well be the biggest threat among the Konoha genin you are aware of. His skill in the Gentle Fist far surpassed your own Hyuuga’s. Assuming he wasn’t some sort of crazy person unfit for command, then his promotion to chunin was pretty much assured. You had to hope it wouldn’t be on the back of your own brats, however. You know for a fact that none of them would be able to beat him currently, probably not even with another two months of training.You say goodbye to Gai and his team, only to find out that your shadow clone has sent your own brats home for the night. Sighing, you decide to head back to the training ground and train until morning, when the brats would return for their morning training. In the exercise time, you would devise countermeasures for Gai’s genin. And probably also the Suna genin-you had no desire to see your brats killed by a jinchuuriki. Their parents would kill you, and as much as you disliked them you didn’t want to see brats with potential killed off before their prime.You are already focusing on physical conditioning, but now it’s time to add another layer of training. After all, you did say the next two months were going to be hell, right?
>>1852205>>1852206>Plan A: Clan Techniques. You’ve been focusing mostly on improving their physical abilities, letting them practice their clan techniques separately. Now it’s time to get serious. The dog boy and Hyuuga girl have flawed taijutsu. Their forms are imperfect. As a taijutsu expert, you could beat proper form into them, helping them master their clan taijutsu and shore up their weaknesses. Meanwhile, the bug brat, who has been training extensively in stamina and chakra control, is now strong enough on those areas to divert time to mastering new techniques with his kikaichu. >Plan B: Exam Preparation. You don’t know exactly what’s going to be on the exam, but you know it consists of three stages: the first being based on knowledge, the latter two focused on practical shinobi skills. The first of the two practicals was a team exam, and the second was an exam that is the same every year: one-on-one battles in a tournament. Make sure they study up on anything they’ve forgotten from the Academy, particularly the dog boy, and begin regularly sparring in both teams and one-on-one. Perhaps you can rope another genin team into this for more training.>Plan C: Time to Open the Gates. Screw everything else. They need a trump card, and you are going to give them one. Right now, the dog boy is on track to open the first gate by the exams, but the other two are behind him. Unacceptable. You are going to have to do some pretty unethical things, but by the Sage of fucking Six Paths you are going to make sure that all of three of them can open at least one gate by the time the exams start. You are not going to let them fall behind their peers, they are going to kick some major ass or you are going to kick their fucking asses. As it is, you are going to have to get their asses into gear, and this means going nearly to the death training wise. No matter. That’s what you have to do.Sorry for the wait, I was distracted by something urgent but I'm back now.

>>1852227Has their shared hatred for Hates Children caused them to improve their teamwork any?
>>1852227Will we be able to train them enough to get at least 2 gates down b y the next Chunin Exam?
>>1852251I think we may have focused too much on physical training to do much teamwork exercises. Personally, I was hoping the C rank mission would have done this...
>>1852251At the very least, I hope they are stronger than in canon, considering that their training is of a much higher quality and they aren't being babbied, they are being trained to be the best by a strict teacher of questionable mental sanity and common sense
Didn't we have an option at one point to hit up Kurenai to get her to teach one of the brats Genjutsu? Think it was Hinata?
>>1852256I mean our sanity and common sense is pretty solid from a old killing machine ninja perspective
We should be put in charge if the ninja acadamyStop the hot trash from flowing through its gate
>>1852227“No. That is not correct. Do it again.”“GATSUUGA!”Just as your shadow clone did the last time he tried that, he grabbed the dog boy by his hoodie and tossed him and Akamaru against the training post.“No. That is not correct. Do it again.”“Can you just tell me what I’m doing wrong already?!”“When you spin, the moment just before you hit your opponent, you flinch your head slightly to the opposite direction. You are instinctively afraid of having your body and especially your face forcibly slammed into things. You need to train this habit out of yourself. Do it again.”He glares, and you smile from where you are perching on top of the bug brat’s body. Speaking of the bug brat…“Aburame. You need to improve the amount of time it takes you to explode your insects. Otherwise you’ll never be able to catch someone with sufficient speed.”“Yes, Kirai-sensei. Will you get off of me?”“Of course. Now do it right this time.”The reason your real body was training with the Aburame was to avoid having his insects suck enough chakra out of a shadow clone to dispel it. This wasn’t a problem with the dog boy or the Hyuuga girl. They’d have to keep up with you in taijutsu, something they were both years away from doing. That being said, you do take a moment as bug brat is dusting himself off to take a look over to where your second shadow clone is duking it out with the Hyuuga.You don’t know the exact katas of the Gentle Fist, but you have her practicing her strikes constantly. You dodge all of them, naturally, and every time you do so you give her a painful but not necessarily damaging strike to the back of the head. By now, you’ve managed to get the handle on you lightning chakra, and can deliver mild electric shocks whenever one of your genin does something you don’t like. It’s quite useful in that respect. You’ll have to train further in order to master any actual jutsu, like the one you still need to learn from Kakashi, but the fact that it’s already serving you well is a good thing.Then, as you casually sidestep another swarm of insects, you notice something you do not at all like.Your shadow clone had an obvious opening. It must have been intentional, trying to give her a chance to strike. The Hyuuga girl, with her byakugan active, clearly noticed it, but decided to strike at a different area instead. She was hesitating to actually strike you, something that you recognized as a manifestation of her peaceable nature. Shit. Guess you got to beat some violence into her.
>>1852295“Aburame, I’m leaving a shadow clone for you. Understood?”“Yes, Kirai-sensei.”With that, you dispel the clone fighting the Hyuuga and approach her. Her byakugan deactivates, and you can see the look on her face is downcast.“Y-yes, sensei?”“Let me ask you something. You have a goal, right? A dream? An ambition? All kids your age do, so I know you have one. I even know what it is.”“R-really?”“Yes. I noticed how you reacted to Uzumaki.”Her face reddens considerably. Clearly your theory was correct, and she was embarrassed that her hatred was discovered by her jounin instructor. Apparently you are not as useless in social situations as you think.“Now,” you say, smiling “I’m not sure why you feel the way you do about that kid, but I’m sure he serves as some sort of motivation to become stronger, right?”She’s too shy to actually say anything, just slowly nodding at your words. Good, this was progress.“You cannot become stronger by hesitating in combat. Therefore, I will aid you achieving your goal by teaching you not to hesitate. For the rest of morning training, this is what I’m going to do. I am going to stand here, and you are going to strike me, no chakra to prevent my tenketsu sealing. Just strike me as hard as possible. If you hesitate, I will deliver an extremely painful electric shock to your body. This is what is called ‘conditioning’. You must realize that in a combat situation, hesitation can mean death. And if you are dead, then you cannot achieve your goal. Correct?”“Y-yes, Kirai-sensei!”She seems surprisingly enthused about hitting you now. You must have said the right sort of thing. The rest of the day involves a lot of electric shocks, but that was just part of the fun.You continue to drill them. Day in and day out, you drill mastery of their clan techniques into them. Little by little, you correct their flaws. Every time the dog boy’s Gatsuuga is a little off, you beat form into him and the dog until it is on again. Every time you evade the bug brat’s kikaichu, you make sure he regrets it. Every time the Hyuuga hesitates to complete a strike, you burn the realization of her failure into her memories with the crackling of electric shock. You see their improvement become rapid, far in excess of what you expected. They tapped into their potential, and proceeded to grow.
>>1852295>>1852298Bug brat’s control of his insects is soon near perfect. He can overload them with chakra to explode them, manipulate them efficiently, replenish their numbers swiftly, and even managed to increase the speed at which they drain chakra. In combination with his stamina and chakra control training, he can utilize a large number of insect-based jutsu without depleting his chakra to dangerous levels. His ability to endure hits also grew considerably during your weekend training sessions, and now you are pretty confident that even his Inuzuka teammate would not be able to take him out in one blow.Speaking of the dog boy, him and his partner became much closer. You realized that one of the things that could potentially improve their taijutsu was for them to get intimately familiar with each other. They’d trained together extensively, but they were both fierce individualists at the worst of times. You beat this out of them with extreme prejudice. They move like they are one being, and their techniques improve greatly for it.The Hyuuga girl’s hesitation is seemingly gone, at least in your spars. You are sure there is work left to be done on that count, but every time she fails at anything at all, you remind her of the object of her hatred and she perks back up again. You are actually impressed with the level of determination she has when his name gets brought up. You should maybe find out why she hates him so much at some point. Was it related to something he did to her in the past? He seemed like a harmless simpleton. Anyway, with your support her mastery of Gentle Fist is increased immensely. In particular, she could now use the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms, though admittedly not perfectly, when before she was restricted to the use of the Thirty-Two palms.There is also something else. Something you didn’t expect at all, but you suppose should have expected anyway. They were beginning to bond.When they trained together, they became more and more considerate and aware of each other and their abilities. They started thinking up new way of combining their techniques all on their own, without your input. It would make you proud, but you disliked them too much to use that word, so instead you just figuratively patted yourself on the back at the strength of your tutelage. Clearly something you said or did something that led to this. You really are a great teacher.Of course, that was when they attempted to kill you.
>>1852295>>1852298>>1852302You were doing push-ups on the training ground, waiting for the brats to arrive. They hadn’t yet, wish was odd, as you made sure to punish them severely for tardiness and it wasn’t yet the weekend. That is when you felt ants crawling up your leg. Well, they looked like ants, but you knew right away they were kikaichu under a transformation. Explosive kikaichu. Shit. The brats were trying to take you down, now? Had their combined hatred of you led them to this point? Or maybe it was just the bug brat snapping? You couldn’t allow this. Your normal tactic of simply flexing the kikaichu off wouldn’t work due to their explosive nature, so instead you merely substituted with a nearby log.Huh. Transforming individual kikaichu. That must have taken a lot of skill, wouldn’t work on you though. “Tsuuga!”You casually sidestep the dog boy’s attack, only to notice that he has a scarf in his mouth, one that he throws at you with his mouth as he spins right by. The scarf then transforms into the Hyuuga girl, who aims a Gentle Fist strike straight at your forehead, no hesitation. Good. Of course, you dodge. Only for a swarm of kikaichu to descend on you from above. Above? What?You looked up, to see the bug brat standing on top of a massive swarm of kikaichu. The brat could fly with the fucking things now? Damn, that would definitely be useful tactically. You reflect on this as you effortlessly evade the swarm of kikaichu.You then have to deal with the Hyuuga girl, whose kick is on track to slam into your chin from below. You lift your head up slightly, rendering it outside of her reach, but she smiles. That’s when you notice that there is an explosive kikaichu on her ankle, one that is now heading towards your face. You jump away, only to be met by the dog boy and Akamaru, who has transformed into a beast clone.“Kaimon, OPEN!” they shout in unison.WHAT THE FUCK-“GATSUUGA-”Fucking hell, how did they get a hold of the gates? You had taught him the process, but hadn’t actually attempted it yet. Has he been training on his own time for this fight? Impressive.
>>1852295>>1852298>>1852302>>1852304Though, even with the gates, he and Akamaru were still not matches for you. When their spinning attack came barreling towards you, you simply grabbed the Hyuuga as she aimed a Gentle Fist strike towards your head, tossing her at the dog boy at laughing as they collided in mid air. Akamaru, still barreling towards you, is easily dealt with by leaping up and slamming a kick into his head to serve as a springboard upwards. Once you were in the air yourself, you launched yourself at the bug brat and gripped the edge of his trenchcoat.You kill the kikaichu that assault you with some simple muscle flexes, then throw the bug brat into his teammate’s unconscious bodies, rendering him in a similar state.Huh. That was some skill they displayed there. They were getting better. Perhaps they wouldn’t pass the Chunin Exams this time, but by next year’s exam they would be shoe-ins. You weren’t sure how they stacked up to all of their competitors, but you were pretty sure they had a greater chance than you initially expected. That being said…You forehead poke them into consciousness, and they look at you fearfully.“Trying to get the jump on me, are we? I think some punishment is in order.”The following weeks are very painful for them, but very entertaining for you. It evened out, and was good training besides.On the weekend before the Chunin Exams, you had successfully tracked down the bug brat. You’d managed to force him out of watching ant colonies and beetle mating rituals for weekend training a few times now. He was doing some bug-watching, but the curious thing was that he seemed surprisingly unfocused. His kikaichu were buzzing around him like crazy.“Aburame?”“Kirai-sensei.”“Is something wrong?”“I do not know.”“You don’t?”“My kikaichu. They are hungry. Very, very hungry. However, their dietary needs are already being fulfilled by my chakra. Something, however, is driving their hunger. I do not know what.”Huh.“Have you tried to calm them down?”“Yes, but they are demanding food. They are refusing to accept my chakra for some reason.”“So what are you going to do?”“There are only two things to do. My clan does not have any records of this condition in its records. I checked already. The only options are to track down either my father, who might very well be on a mission at the moment, or to ask a medic-nin to determine if there is something is wrong with my chakra that would cause the kikaichu to consider it unworthy of eating.”>Try and track down his father. Perhaps he would have some knowledge of this condition.>Go and find a medic-nin. Chakra diseases are quite serious ailments, so it’s best to know if he’s ever going to be a ninja again.
>>1852256>>1852256Sanity is really overrated. Besides all the ninja that live past a certain point and survive certain things have quirks to keep them kinda sane.
>>1852305>Try and track down his father. Perhaps he would have some knowledge of this condition.
>>1852305We are going to the Hokage to ask if your father is on a mission, If he isn't we track him down. If he is we are going to the medic-nin.
>>1852305>>Try and track down his father. Perhaps he would have some knowledge of this condition.>>Go and find a medic-nin. Chakra diseases are quite serious ailments, so it’s best to know if he’s ever going to be a ninja again.Both are viable options to do. And unless his dad says not to go to a doc if we talk to him. We can still have him checked out.
>>1852305>>Try and track down his father. Perhaps he would have some knowledge of this condition.
>>1852313You'll be starting with this is you choose to track down his father.>>1852317You are just choosing what to do first, you can always go for the other one later.
>>1852305>>Try and track down his father. Perhaps he would have some knowledge of this condition.Bug king to know what happens to the bug prince
>>1852305>Try and track down his father. Perhaps he would have some knowledge of this condition.A normal med nin wouldn't know shit about this situationAlso we need to talk to kiba about how he achieved the gates
>>1852309>>1852317>>1852318>>1852321>>1852325>>1852327Tracking down Aburame Shibi. Writing.
>>1852331“Right. Well, going to your father sounds like the best bet right now. You say he might be on a mission?”“He doesn’t go on them as often due to his duties as clan head, but it is a possibility.”“That’s fine, we’ll just pop into the Hokage’s office and ask.”You grab the bug brat, his insects still whirring around you, and hop off in the direction of the Hokage Tower. It isn’t far from Senju Park, which is the particular bug-watching sight that the bug brat had chosen today. However, you don’t even make it to the tower before you spot something odd enough that it causes you to stop in your tracks.On the street is a massive collection of kikaichu, so large that it is actually blocking people from walking through the area. You can barely catch sight of what’s within it, but you do manage to grab a glimpse of Aburame Shibi from inside of the teeming swarm. You and the bug brat head into the swarm to investigate, and for the normally quite defensive kikaichu seem totally disinterested in biting either of you.When you enter, you can see that there are multiple Aburame all standing together, commiserating about something. Aburame Shibi is at the head of the group.“Shibi,” you announce, making your presence known, “What the fuck is going on?”He turns to look at you.“Kirai-san. I do not know. For some reason, the Aburame clan kikaichu have all gone mad with chakra hunger, but have no desire to eat their hosts’ chakra as normal. However, we have located the source of this issue.”“The source?”“Yes. Are kikaichu are trying to lead us in a certain direction. We determined this because they are always facing their feeders in this specific direction. Presumably they sense a particularly tasty chakra, and they want to eat it more than they desire any other food, even their own host's chakra. Thus, we are very slowly making our way towards the source.”“I see,” says the bug brat, “Then I will accompany you to find this source, father.”>Join in too. You’re curious as to what has the Aburame clan insects in an uproar.>Nah, this reeks of clan business. Just track down one of the other brats and have weekend training with them.
>>1852342>>Join in too. You’re curious as to what has the Aburame clan insects in an uproar.Even if they are creepy
>>1852342>>Join in too. You’re curious as to what has the Aburame clan insects in an uproar.
>>1852342>Join in too. You’re curious as to what has the Aburame clan insects in an uproar.
>>1852342>>Join in too. You’re curious as to what has the Aburame clan insects in an uproar.Whatever this is, it's affected the entire Aburame clan at once. It's entirely possible it could get worse as it goes on.Like it or not, someone that isn't suffering the effects needs to go with, in case it incapacitates them entirely.
>>1852344>>1852347>>1852348>>1852349>>1852350Joining in the search. Writing.
I'm a bit surprised this comparison hasn't come up yet desu
>>1852375We don't have a Private Pyle on our team. They are all equally worthless
>>1852377>They are all equally worthlessHey now, Shino'sbetter than dog boy at least.
>>1852377are they really useless or does Kirai have very high standards?
>>1852398He has very high standards for his beloved corps
>>1852398High standards. Kids on his days weren't pussies who whined with just a little bit of tough love
>>1852402>>1852401>>1852399Can't wait to see them kick ass , they were overlooked quite a lot .
>>1852402>>1852398Didn't you just see Biki get his head kicked into mush? The standards are there to keep the kids from getting rekt out of hand
>>1852351“I’ll tag along too. It’s best a non-Aburame is there in case this ‘source’ incapacitates you.”“Your help is not needed, but appreciated, Kirai-san. Very well. You shall accompany us.”The process of walking becomes very slow as the kikaichu gradually lead you and the Aburame to your destination. The insect procession blocks everything in its path and forces people to move aside as it trudges its way down Konoha’s streets in search of the source. You never thought of the Aburame as being particular ravenous before, yet some of them are starting to get visibly excited at the incoming meal. Does part of their kikaichu’s hunger rub off on them, maybe? Who knows. Nonetheless, it was a bit disturbing.“What the hell is that?” shouts a girl. You can barely make out her shape from inside of the swarm, but her voice seems quite young.The kikaichu go haywire, swooping all over the place and buzzing like mad. You turn to look at Shibi, whose eyes are unreadable through his sunglasses.“What’s the deal? Why did we stop?”“We have found the source of the chakra,” says Shibi, pushing up his glasses with his forefinger, “I believe it is that girl.”“What? Does she even have enough chakra to feed a swarm this big?”“I do not know for certain. However, I have a theory.”“I do as well, father. Would you allow me to state it?”“You have permission,” responds Shibi, turning to look at his son.“After our C-rank mission in the Land of Rivers, Kirai-sensei explained to us the concept of jinchuuriki and bijuu. I did further research and was interested to discover that the Nanabi was a kabutomushi. If our theories are converging, as I believe they are, do you think that she is the jinchuuriki of the Nanabi?”“Indeed, Shino.”A jinchuuriki? Oh, fuck no. They were going to try to swarm a jinchuuriki with nothing but a bunch of kikaichu? Shibi seems to detect the concern on your face.“Do not fear, Kirai-san. Now that we know the source, we can call off our kikaichu.”All of a sudden, the mass of kikaichu descends, returning to their hives. Only the bug brat’s remains buzzing about.“Shino.”“Yes, father?”“You will have to train your insects further. You cannot allow them to be distracted by the jinchuuriki’s chakra. Do what you must.”“Yes, father.”A strange thing happens. Some of the kikaichu return to the bug brat’s trenchcoat, but others simply fall out of the air and start twitching on the ground.“I have purged the noncompliants, father."“Very good, Shino. Remember that those who resist must be eliminated, or else they shall taint the entire gene pool.”The bug brat nods at his father’s advice. You are just standing, staring back and forth between Shibi and the bug brat, trying to process what just happened. After determining it was just clan secrets and so you shouldn’t question it, you turn back around to face the girl.
>>1852410The jinchuuriki, if that is what she indeed is, looks like a total brat. She wore her Taki forehead protector on somewhere besides her forehead, like a typical brat. Mint-green hair and orange eyes? Was that natural, or was it an effect of the Nanabi’s chakra, much like the whiskers of the Kyuubi jinchuuriki? Anyway, she seemed a little terrified, which was to be expected after having been accosted by a massive swarm of kikaichu.“Hello,” says Shibi, in as close to a welcoming tone as any Aburame was capable of, “Welcome to Konoha. I am Aburame Shibi, Clan Head of the Aburame.”“Er, okay. I’m Fuu. You’re an Aburame, huh? Was that what all the bugs were buzzing around for?”“My apologies, Fuu-san. They were being difficult with us on this particular day.”“I understand, I guess. Just, uh, please keep them off of me, okay?”“If that is your wish, Fuu-san. I see you are a shinobi of Takigakure. Are you here in Konoha for the Chunin Exams?”“Yup. Don’t tell my teammates where I am, by the way, they’re trying to track me down.”“Very well, Fuu-san. Allow me to introduce you to my son, Shino.”Shibi slowly pushes his son forward, whispering something into his ear. Shino nods, then approaches Fuu and extends his hand.“Hello. Welcome to Konoha. I am Aburame Shino.”Fuu stares at his hand for a moment, but then smiles and accepts it. Her handshake is bit off, and you can tell that the bug brat is experiencing actual pain from the force of her grip.“Nice to meet you. I’m Fuu. Wait, I already said that, didn’t I? Heh. Well, nice to meet you anyway. I kind of have to run, so…”She lets go of his hand awkwardly, then jumps on top of the next building. From there, she proceeds to escape at full speed. Does she really not want her teammates to find her?Anyway, the Aburame disperse and you and the bug brat begin to slowly walk towards the training ground. However, the bug brat stops in his tracks, clearly considering something.“Kirai-sensei, can I ask you a question?”“Sure, I guess.”“What do you do when you like a girl?”>Fuck this, knock him unconscious and bring him to the training ground.>You fuck them, obviously. Give him the bluntest advice imaginable to shut him up.>Explain the concept of romance. You’re not sure how well you can do it, you’ve never been in love.>Is he really asking this? You figure his father would have already explained this sort of thing to him. Give him ‘the Talk’.
>>1852411>>You fuck them, obviously. Give him the bluntest advice imaginable to shut him up.KEK
>>1852411>>Is he really asking this? You figure his father would have already explained this sort of thing to him. Give him ‘the Talk’.The birds and the bees.With emphasis on bees.
>>1852411>You fuck them, obviously. Give him the bluntest advice imaginable to shut him up.There are some other thigns like romance and love and declerations and such, however the best way to really get a girl is to either save them from certain death or to bring them something they really like. So Ask them if they have something they want, and fetch it. Pretend they are me when I want the best efforts from you.
>>1852411>>>Is he really asking this? You figure his father would have already explained this sort of thing to him. Give him ‘the Talk’.>The birds and the bees.>With emphasis on bees."However, if you are asking for advice on romance, you are speaking to the wrong person."

>>1852433Don't forget to add Toruc's post in too.
>>1852433Hmm. Aburame Shibi does seem like he might be a little hesitant to explain to his son any lewd concepts. At least, that’s what it seems like from your impression of him. Perhaps you should give him ‘the Talk’ yourself. How to do it though…maybe you should make an analogy using his insects?“Aburame. How do your insects reproduce?”“Well, generally speaking, the female will begin to secrete a specific pheromone that attracts male attention. Once a large number of males has surrounded her, she will mate with each one in turn until her body is overflowing with their sperm cells. The males will continue to mate with her until they all die of exhaustion. When the now pregnant female kikaichu lays her eggs, she dies on top of the egg sac, and is devoured by her newborns once they hatch. Now, there are ways to affect this process-”“No, please stop, I’ve heard enough. That’s not how it works in Humans,” you say, rubbing your forehead in exasperation. Looks like that was a wash. How else to explain?“Why would how it works in Humans be a concern?”“Well, because, um…right. Listen up. It’s like this. Have you ever seen a girl, and just been like, wow, I want to get with her?”“I do not understand.”“As in, an ‘I want to make babies with this person’ kind of thing?”“I do not understand.”“Uh, you see, that’s a manifestation of what’s called ‘sexual desire’ or ‘lust’ for short. You see, it means that you, um, want to…overflow her with your sperm cells, yeah? That make sense to you? And that’ll get her pregnant.”“I see. Is this why my mother is deceased? No, that can’t be. Kiba’s mother is still alive…did he devour his father instead? That is common in some insect species, though not Kikaichu. Perhaps dogs eat their fathers instead, and the Inuzuka have emulated their behavior.”“No, you are not understanding me. It’s, well, the human woman just gives birth afterwards, you know. She still lives.”“So they do devour the father instead. Then why are my father and Hinata’s father still alive?”“I…listen, no one devours anyone, you…”You look very carefully at the bug brat. His lips, normally a firm line, are now curled up slightly at the edges. He’s fucking with you.“…you should stop being a little shit and get to morning training, Aburame. You should know that if you’re looking for advice on romance, I’m not even remotely the person to ask. You’re speaking to the wrong person.”“Clearly not.”You give him an electric shock for that.“Yes, clearly not. Ask your father or someone else who has been laid before. Who is it, anyway? The girl you like?”“Is it not obvious?”>It’s got to be the Hyuuga. They’re teammates, nothing else makes sense.>Must be one of the Aburame. They’re a weird bunch, and incest is common in clans.>There’s two other girls in his class. Maybe it’s one of them? You don’t believe he’s shown interest in his teammate before, so perhaps.Fuu is not an option because Kirai is autistic

>>1852462>If it's the Jinchuuriki, you might as well neuter yourself now. As you said before, undesirable traits, like idiocy of the highest order, must be purged so they do not taint the gene pool.

It better be one of the two that passed.”“You mean Sakura-san and Ino-san?”“Yeah, yeah. Those are their names, right, Aburame?”“May I ask a question, Kirai-sensei?”“Yes?”“What is my name?”“Aburame.”“My given name, sensei.”>Shiki>Shikon>Shitarou>Shikamaru>This is not a real vote, do not really vote on this>Shinoto>Shin>Shiko>Shiyo>Shiyon“Uh, it’s something with an ‘S’.”“Shino. My name is Aburame Shino.”“Yeah, something like that sounds right.”He stares at you for several moments. You give him another electric shock.“Now it’s time for training, Aburame.”He grimaces. Good.“Don’t look so sad, Aburame. The Chunin Exams are coming up soon. Maybe you’ll have a chance to devour that jinchuuriki’s bijuu chakra.”“Oh?”“Yeah, I saw how you were looking at her. I don’t know why, I guess it’s just some Aburame clan thing, but you looked like you were wanted to just eat her, right there. Just get a few good bits of her chakra into your system. That’s real savage of you, kid.”“I do not believe-”“Shut up about what you believe, Aburame. I’m not religious.”>Updates end for nowSorry, I have to leave early. Updates will resume either tomorrow afternoon or in a new thread Monday afternoon. Chunin Exams start next session.
This is an excuse to train the living shit out of him until he has to crawl on the ground like one of his precious bugs, by the way. The only reliable way to attract a suitable mate, after all, is to reach peak performance.
>>1852526>“Shut up about what you believe, Aburame. I’m not religious.”
SHIT! I missed the update! Oh god that was so much fun NOIP!Also here's an updated picture of Kirai lookin' a bit older.
>>1852551He reminds me of a pissed off WWII Jap general. I like it!>>1852526Session was great today, thanks for running man
>>1852551this scream "LET'S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS. TO DEFEAT THE NINS"
>>1852551That's really good. Pretty much exactly how I imagine.
Is the reason why Kirai doesn't care about learning the kids name is because we lost all our friends/squad members when we fougth that Jinchuriki? So he doesn't want to get attached to others? Nah i guess he's just a asshole.
>>1852726Consider it this way- would Kirai believe having a name to be something necessary to ninja?
>>1852726I think is a combination of Kirai having a hard childhood and no people to get attached to, and him being an asshole.
So, how proud are we of Kiba learning the First Gate?
>>1852775My reaction of "WHAT THE FUCK" was the same as Kirai's. I can't wait to see him use it in the Chunin Exam
>>1852726I get the feeling he's lost a lot more than just one team from that jinchuriki fight. He probably spends a lot of time at the memorial, and unlike kakashi, it isn't just to reminisce about a couple of people.After all there are very few old ninja for a reason.He keeps a photograph of himself and his old genin team hidden in his apartment. He's the last one left. He only takes it out when he's drinking.Just think, decades and decades ago, he was just as upbeat and optimistic as Nawaki. Two world wars and the death of almost everyone he ever cared about beat that out of him.Now all that's left is cynicism and loyalty to Konoha and his job. The fact that the third insisted he take this job of training kids was because he recognized that Kirai needed this to keepvhom grounded.
>>1852787I love this.Especially this bit: >He keeps a photograph of himself and his old genin team hidden in his apartment. He's the last one left. He only takes it out when he's drinking.
>>1852787>He keeps a photograph of himself and his old genin team hidden in his apartment. He's the last one left. He only takes it out when he's drinking.Shit, that's depressing.Now that I think about it a lot of the younger guys are lucky, they've all got other Jounin they can just shoot the shit with, while all the older people(older than us) got their own groups too.We're like in a constant state of loneliness. Which I guess makes sense since we were just a Genin during the Second War, so all of the people our age might've died.
>>1852787>He keeps a photograph of himself and his old genin team hidden in his apartment. He's the last one left. He only takes it out when he's drinking.Thats fucking stupid.hes an asshole, stop trying to make him likeable and making excuses for his shit manners.
>>1852822Gotta have depth to the character.
>>1852822Your salt has been noted and disregarded
>>1852822While I'm not entirely sold into photo sentimentalism, there must be a reason why he's an unlikable asshole with everybody, and having dulled his feelings for other through battle losses might work as the reason behind his assholeness
>>1852787excellent suggestion, i really dig it. Disregard this chump >>1852822
>>1852822I have to agree with this. Kirai as it is doesn't need a deep backstory, he being unlikeable is what makes him likeable.
>>1852835He's great as he is now but eventually we are going to want to explore what makes him tick. He needs to be more than a 2-d character in the long run. Was he literally born an uncaring, charismatic asshole? If not, how did he become that way and how long did it take? These are questions worth exploring I reckon. Depth in a character is great
>>1852835>>1852822As much of a cliche the 'detached lone veteran' is, it kind of is in essence what a grouch of a ninja would be. For Kirai, I feel like this can work because we're only given his pragmatism and spartan way of life to base it on and nothing much else.Yeah he had a rough upbringing, and he's similar to Kakashi in having his team dying, but he's not overcome with grief or rants on it because of it. If anything, it is just the simple action of being an angry, asshole that endears him to us and makes us want to know why he acts like that. Personally, I like a funny douche as much as the next faggot but I have to side with the prior arguments for his depth.
>>1852787Nah. Like you said, he was a genin during the second war. The incredibly bloody war with a ridiculous rate of attrition.He has several photographs. Of several teams.Each one has his grin grow dimmer, until the last one where suddenly he's all teeth and glaring into the camera.After that team died, he didn't bother showing up for the photographs.
>>1852856Now, that's a little over the top.
>>1852856>Each one has his grin grow dimmer, until the last one where suddenly he's all teeth and glaring into the camera.>After that team died, he didn't bother showing up for the photographs.
>>1852856NahWe apparently like war or at least want every genin to be trained like what they are, child soldiersAlso thats a bit too edgy for my taste
>>1852866Let me clarify, it's a little over the top because a step by step progression in a bunch of photos is kind of silly, as well as redundant, narratively.1 photo showing him as a surly, but still normal kid with friends and hopes and dreams is enough because it shows the difference between how he was then to how he is now. The step by step progression isn't needed because it's implied by the difference in the two.
>>1852875I'm not saying I'm down with the stuff anon wrote but it would contribute to us wanting genin to be trained like proper soldiers. Seeing everyone we know and give a shit about being slaughtered time after time could only lead us to forcing our own genin to train until they are the best they can possibly be so it doesn't happen again.
>>1852866>>1852875>>1852880>>1852884Maybe that would be more fitting if this was an actual anime? Like this would be in the opening or the ending.
Woah, all this debate about Kirai's character is starting to make my head spin.Well, I suppose the good thing about Kirai being an old veteran is the stories it provides me as an author. I can draw on his experience to explain his actions and character, simply because he has experienced so much. With regards to his backstory, there's a few things I want to clarify.Firsy of all, Kirai was never on a genin team himself. He was sent into the active shinobi forces as soon as he graudated because they were in the middle of a war. He had basically no time to adjust to shinobi life before being thrown into the thick of it, in other words. But instead of perishing like so many of his comrades over the years, he endured. He grit his teeth and beared with it, and found that ninja work was his true calling.The platoon sent to take down Iwa's jinchuuriki was one of many events of which he is now the only survivor. It doesn't matter to him more than any other event like it, save for providing him with more experience in fighting jinchuuriki. He wasn't attached to the team, and their deaths barely affected him. By then, he'd already become a chunin and shoved aside his emotions. He never had the time to develop attachment to people, growing up as a dour orphan and spending his adolescence as a child soldier. He very honestly doesn't care about anything except for his work.Kirai has never had a friend or a lover to comfort him. He's never had a mentor or parental figure to guide him. He's spent most of his life as a cold-blooded killer, and his assholery is a reflection of this. He's never had to deal with people except for when he's killed them or been on missions with them, and in the latter case he's outlived every single comrade he's ever had. There are no living and active shinobi of his generation save the Sannin, and they are several years older them him amd haven't met him in person.So, in other words, Kirai is a naturally sour individual who was never taught manners by anyone, whose comrades all end up dying before him, and has been killing people for longer than most of his current peers have been alive. If he seems like an asshole, and he is certainly an asshole, this is why.
>>1852875Maybe his life experiences dulled his feelings so much due the many deaths he witnessed that he actually came to see ninjas as expendable assets if they aren't strong enough, and as soldiers expected to go beyond their 100% if they live through training.I mean, he seems to have lost so much interest in life as something valuable that he saved his genin only to save himself from being scolded by their clans rather than out of consideration for their wellbeing. That and he pretty much hates everything and doesn't even have sex drive judging by how the red dristrict didn't do shit to him while Kakashi at least uses his libido as escapism for his own issues
>>1852899Cool, alright well that's interesting and provides some good insight into the character. Thanks for the clarification.
>>1852899So, basically he's a sociopath. Awesome.
>>1852911Not a natural one. You can think of his sociopathy as a coping mechanism to deal with all the accumulated trauma. He never bothered getting close to anyone after he realized that life is ephermeral and they might very well be dead tomorrow. Over time, this developed into just not caring about humanity at all, and so he focused all of his being into his murderous work.
>>1852916How do other jounin and the influential people in the village/world see or think of Kirai?
>>1852919Yeah this, I wanna' know what others think of him.
>>1852919Gai seems like he's our only "friend"
>>1852925>>1852921I think he'd be that guy that barely anyone, if anyone, likes and they only tolerate his bullshit cause he does good work and isn't a treasonous shit.
>>1852925We might get along with Asuma too.
>>1852899Being responsible for his genin team is a weird, new thing for him then, he's pretty much forced to get attached to them and develop a closer acquaintance with their families. I'm betting that by this point Kirai would make sure the death of anyone who hurt his brats was especially painful. He's invested time and effort into them, maybe he'll even remember their names once they hit chuunin.>>1852919I'm guessing most see him as an asshole who they don't know well, nor are they really interested in getting to know better, he's abrasive at the best of times. But he's one of the strongest of Konoha and focuses on the mission, so nobody is going to complain about being in a squad with him. And if shit hits the fan and you really need backup, Kirai splatting an enemy ninja with a Gate enhanced Dynamic Entry is one of the most inspiring sights you'll ever find.
>>1852919Kirai isn't the most famous ninja of all time, but he does have a reputation as being a tough old bastard. I suppose I should go by specific individual, yeah?[b]Konohagakure[/b]In Konoha itself, Kirai is known as an expirienced and respected jounin to the village's shinobi but is mostly unknown to the civilian population.Kakashi: He thinks of you with pity, mot that he'd ever actually say it. You remind him too much of what he used to be like.Gai: Views you as an astute comrade and ejoys fighting you, but feels you lack the true understanding of YOUTH needed for a shinobi of Konoha. Basically he finds you too much of a dour bastard to hang out with when not sparring.Asuma: Doesn't like you very much, but doesn't hate you either. Likes your assholery when not directed at him.Kurenai: Thinks of you as an old grump. Hasn't been a jounin long enough for the two of you to develop a working relationship.Third Hokage: Views you as a sad product of the shinobi system and feel partly responsible for having created you. Secretly hopes you grow fond of your team and develop humanity.Aburame Shibi: Respects your skill, thinks you are far too harsh in your training.Inuzuka Tsume: Appreciates your harsh training, but doesn't actually like you very much in any other respect.Hyuuga Hiashi: Doesn't trust you with his daughter, but also knows that you can teach her a lot.Aburame Shino: Looks up to you, and believes your harsh training is making him a better ninja. He appreciates your experience and wants to learn as much from you as he can. Fears your punishments.Inuzuka Kiba: Hates your guts, but respects your skill as a ninja. Has even started to enjoy the training. Fears your punishments.Akamaru: See Kiba.Hyuuga Hinata: Is scared of you, but also appreciates your desire to aid her in her goal. Doesn't like your training, but willing to bear with it to become stronger and impress a certain someone. Fears your punishments.Uzumaki Naruto: Thinks you are a cool old guy from that one time you met.Uchiha Sasuke: Doesn't appreciate you wasting his time by kidnapping him and forcing him to spar with Kiba[b]Kirigakure[/b]Known for having clashed with multiple notable Kiri shinobi, including the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist.Mizukage (Yagura): Is currently under Obito's control, and thus doesn't think of you much at all.[b]Kumogakure[/b]Is hated for having killed a huge number of Kumo-nin over the years.Raikage: Has no personal grudge with you, but is aware of your existence. Like with any shinobi known for speed, he wants to prove he is faster than you.[b]Iwagakure[/b]In Iwa, Kirai isn't very well known. He was removed from the front after the disaster with the jinchuuriki assasination platoon.Tsuchikage: Is older than you by quite a bit, and remembers you from the delegation led to forge an alliance between Konoha and Suna that was interfered with by Iwa.>cont.
>>1852973Sorry for fucking up the formatting.Anyway:Roshi: Would recognize you as a survivor of the platoon that tried to assainate him. Feels guilt about the people he killed back then, and his actions in general as a weapon of Iwa.SunagakureIs known by some older types as part of the delegation that forged their current alliance with Konoha. Recently came into the spotlight for nearly breaking that alliance and clashing with their jinchuuriki.Kazekage: Views you as a loose cannon, doesn't like you at all.Gaara: KILL KILL KILL KILLTemari and Kankuro: Mad that you kidnapped them. Very mad.TanigakureHates you. Blames you for the death of their shinobi.
>>1852899I want to give Kirai a hug. I know he would break all my bones for it but i still want to do it.
>>1852911He's a FUNCTIONAL sociopath anon.
Just as an aside in regards to chakra nature and channeling through weapons, water is the only basic nature without a listed effect. What do we think that effect might be? Concussive perhaps?
>>1852973>Kurenai: Thinks of you as an old grump. Hasn't been a jounin long enough for the two of you to develop a working relationship.this needs to be corrected, more jounin missions>Uchiha Sasuke: Doesn't appreciate you wasting his time by kidnapping him and forcing him to spar with Kibafuck, we should have waited for kibas training to progress before doing this. still, might make sasuke underestimate him during the exam.>Kazekage: Views you as a loose cannon, doesn't like you at all.control your son, you shit.
Was Fuu canonically in the Chuunin exams?
>>1853006She was in the second lot of exams hosted in the Land of Wind iirc
>>1852986>TanigakureWas that the one place were Gaara went berserk? Also to bad for Shino guess his waifu will try to murder us.
>>1853005It's funny the kazekage saying that Kirai is a loose canon when he has sended Gaara. That little shit needs to learn how to control his brat. A good forehead pokes or something.
>>1852973I love the Third's and Kakashi's views on us.
>>1852973>Shino actually likes us.This, uh, this is weird. How would Kirai react to this?
>>1853017Tanigakure was where Gaara massacred the shinobi, yes. Takigakure is where Fuu is from. Tani and Taki are two different places, despite the similar names.
>>1852973>Aburame Shino: Looks up to you, and believes your harsh training is making him a better ninja. He appreciates your experience and wants to learn as much from you as he can. Fears your punishments.I knew there was a reason we hated him the least. Pretty much exactly what we want from our students.>>1852986>Kazekage: Views you as a loose cannon, doesn't like you at all.But goddamn it, we get results.>>1853017Tani, not Taki.
>>1853026So what were Baki's last thoughts when we killed him?
>>1853039Probably "Holy shit he's fas-"
>>1853039>"YES! I don't have to deal with Gaara anymo-"
>>1853039"I knew this fucking psycho would get me ki-"
>>1853005It's all part of our master plan.Kiba got his ass kicked. When he eventually does the ass kicking, he'll see the training paying off.
>>1852973>Aburame Shino: Looks up to youAww...
>>1853046Speaking of plan, how much of canon have we begun to unravel? Like, Chuunin exams are going to be the point where we see the fruits of our labor, but do we have any predictions as to what has changed?
>>1853057We probably strained sand-leaf relations meaning that the leaf will be prepared for the invasionAlso killing baki might unravel some plans
>>1853057I'm hoping we still get the Gaara/Lee match, but aside from that I'd like to see other people fight each other......Oh fuck did us fighting Gaara with the Gates possibly give him a heads up on what to expect?!
>>1853063You may or may not get a Gaara vs Lee match. Basically, your actions have changed who gets in and out of the Forest of Death and in what condition. Then I'm just planning on randomizing the matches to make them different from canon but rerolling anything that wouldn't be fun to write or read.This way it is really rather unpredictable, you know? Unless I get something stupid like Sakura vs Gaara it will completely random.
>>1853075Would be pretty cool to see a Neji vs Sasuke match.Or a Naruto vs Hinata.
>>1853077Yeah. I'm trying to make the third part of the exam as interesting as possible because there won't be as much to do during the first and second exams, seeing as you won't be present.
>>1853085Unless we disguise ourselves as a Genin that is...>"I am Suki Hito(LIkes People), and I am a 12 year old brat brimming with idiocy."
>>1853091>(Likes People)That's fucking hilarious
>>1853091>>1853094I fucking love it.
>>1853075Is Orochimaru-sama still showing up in the forest?
>>1853107Shop the headband and shitty anime hair on him and then it will be perfect.
>>1853114I am not sure...Since they lost Baki and Gaara is in a more agitated state, Orochimaru may be postponed as a result of not having an inside man in Konoha.
Actually, what I'm probably going to do with regards to the Forest of Death is make a pastebin called "What Happened in the Forest of Death" in case anyone is curious whem the third exam comes around and they have no idea what's going on.
>>1853121I would have suggested doing a perspective shift to our team while in the forest but this works.
>>1853121That sounds fun.
>>1853091you son of a bitch
>>1853121Seconding the perspective shift here >>1853122but that's fine, too.
>>1853122Problem is you'll have other things to do while they're in the forest. I can't tell you what, but there will be other things.
>>1853121Look forward to reading it>>1853116I have no photoshopping skills
>>1852831Sometimes an asshole is just an asshole anon...
>>1852840Every a piece of media which has tried to explore why an abrasive, cynical character is the way they are has been tedious and awful.House. Rick & Morty. The whole process only serves to suck out the magic of these characters and replaces it with [RELATABLE DRAMA]...
>>1852899I wonder how long its gonna take until the genin team start to get curious about his history. Probably it will start because they wanna find his weaknesses. At the very least it will be a very eye opening and probably depressing experience when they try to find some peers of his and fail spectacularly.>>1853136Fair enough.
>>1853530i could see trying to find any former genin teammates or peers and then getting depressed
>>1853530>>1853577>Team H8 goes looking for Kirai's old squad buddies. >Can't find any of them.>Eventually just go look up the records for them.>"Ai Taiyo: Killed in combat.">"Shibo Sokudo: Killed in combat.">" Kasai Hato: Succumbed to injuries, dead.">"Bin Moriagaru: Killed in combat.">So on and so on.>Eventually Team H8 heads off to find Kirai and tries to hug him.>He thinks it's a tactical assault and ends up smacking the shit out of them.
>>1853577Note that NOIP said "living and active". There are almost certainly a reasonable number of crippled veterans and possibly a few who retired. If they go looking they'll find one shinobi without legs, another who had all their joints destroyed by Iwa torture, 2 with serious spinal injuries from a Mist swordsman, and a guy who quit as a chuunin and runs a bakery.
>>1853613>and a guy who quit as a chuunin and runs a bakery.Oddly enough he hates Kirai too.
>>1853611>Kirai doesn't remember their names>not because of trying to forget or because it was so long ago>he just never learned them>but if his team bring up how some of them died, he then remembers them by the nicknames he gave them>He remembers that a ninja he called Stumpy died after losing his limbs>Laughs about the coincidence>Kiba hates him even more>Shino is disturbed>Hinata looks shocked but actually thinks it's funny tooMaybe having him be an asshole because he finds joy in being one might be better than just adding 'sad backstory #4367'.
>>1853737I mean, that'd be funny just because it's IC that Kirai doesn't really value life or people in general all that much.
>>1853737The Hokage is hoping that being responsible for a genin team develops his humanity, he fears that we will mold our students into existences just as sour as he is.Shino actually looks up to him, which is just fucking weird.I wonder if Kiba and Naruto are going to keep running into each other while getting ramen. They could have some hilarious conversations, like who had the worst first mission, whose sensei is more of a jerk, and if us or Kakashi would win in a fight.
Hey can I have a link to the archive for this quest? Looks kinda fun and I wanna catch up
>>1853878Also OP's twitter account so I don't miss this going live?
>>1853878Here is the link for the archive:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Naruto%20Jounin%20Quest
>>1853761>Shino being weirdThat's just Shino being Shino.
>shino is the only one who likes usWe must push him away as soon as possible
I made a twitter.twitter.com/NOIPqm Next update will be tomorrow, in a new thread most likely. But we'll see.
>>1854696> shino is the only one who likes usThis is only means that we haven't been 'training' him hard enough...If the exams weren't literally tomorrow I'd suggest that we force them to train 18 to 20 hours a day...
>>1854767No need to be extra harsh with him. Sure, being feared and hated gives Kirai his sick kicks, but if he can create another no nonsense murder machine like he is, all the better. Now, if only we coul make Shino get rid of all his earthly desires and embrace the murder, it would be the best.
>>1854773> No need to be extra harsh with himBoo!Get off the stage!
Honestly, noone's been talking about it but I really want to see how everyone will react when they see Akamaru open one of the gates.
>>1854897I'm actually kinda curious about how opening the gates affects Hinata's gentle fist.Also, does Hinata have an 8 pack yet because of the training? KIba and Shino probably do.
>>1854898The extra speed will affect things
>>1854903Well with the increased speed and strength, she will most likely be able to take down an enemy with a single gentle fist strike.The excess chacra could effect the range/accuracy of her Byakugan
>>1854904Yeah hopefully a range boost if she opens the gate. That along with extra speed is going to be pretty powerful.
>>1853005Anything we can do to ruin and marginalize Sasuke in the future will be great
>>1854905Maybe thats her equalizer against nejiWe need to get them all in a group and ask them who knows the gates and who doesn'tWaitCan shinos bugs learn the gates?
>>1854909>successful insect eugenics program where Shino has access to thousands of consistent 8-gates critters
>>1854909Nah the bugs cant but maybe them eating a bit of Shinos super charged chakra might have a bit of an effect
A couple comments:No, Shino's bugs do not possess a complex enough chakra network to utlize the gates. This does not mean they do not receive a boost from it, of course.Hinata has a well-developed musculature, but it is too soon for a eight-pack. Kiba, on the other hand...Only Kiba knows how to open the first gate. If you had chosen to train them in how to open the gates, Shino and Hinata would also be able to open it and Kiba would be able to open the second gate.As an aside, I have finalized my outline of what will occur in the Forest of Death and who will fight who in the preliminaries. Let's just say that things will get [i]interesting[/i]
>>1854913I mean, the bugs have chakra, right?So they could potentially learn the gates, right?
>>1855116For some reason I can never format properly when phoneposting. I should stop trying.
>>1855118You can only format properly if you're the literal OP of the thread. As such, posting from your phone wont let you do it
>>1855123Ah, is that why? Well, whatever. I will stop trying
Best idea, have a bunch of shinos bugs to take huge loads of his chakra. Open all 8 gates.when its about to fizzle out and kill him, have the bugs refill him with chakra so he doesn't die.Infinite 8 gates uses!
>>1855116Ok thats fineStill the idea of a super swarm is strong
>>1855137>Open all 8 Gates>RIP in Pieces Shino It's not just an issue of using all your chakra, you also literally burn to a crisp. Opening the gates puts huge physical strain on the body and the 8th gate kills you outright
>>1855137Won't work. Eighth Gate causes the user's blood to evaporate. It isn't chakra exhaustion that kills them.
>>1855152>Get shit ton of mosquitoes>Supercharge and supersize them>Have them refill Shino with the blood of those he's slain>????>Profit
>>185515> Eighth Gate causes the user's blood to evaporate.Jesus christuh, 7 gates then?
>>1852973>Raikage: Has no personal grudge with you, but is aware of your existence. Like with any shinobi known for speed, he wants to prove he is faster than you.So we should act like the Third Reich-age?
>>1855169Having them have to access anything past 2 as a core battle strategy sounds like a bad ideaMight Guy's a genius so he got a bit of leeway with the side effects
I won't be able to make it back to my computer in time, so I've archived the thread. Chunin Exams will start tomorrow. I have a lot planned for it, so...suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/1848782/
>>1855137Not that simple. Using the 8th gate is so strenuous on the body it literally turns the user to ash when it's finished.
>>1855169Basically the gates are a last ditch effort.Anything beyond gate 2 is going to leave you pretty much helpless and in need of immediate medical attention after the effects finish. Even if you only use the first two gates, it's going to be difficult to fight further and you should really go to the hospital anyways. That being said, I think it'd be pretty cool if Kirai had some other taijutsu trick up his sleeves besides the gates. Every other jonin has techniques that make them stand out.
>>1855541Maybe some kind of complex maneuever only possible with the help of a clone? It's not like naruto is the only one who can use clones for practical combat uses.
>>1855541Well lets see, our dude is a taijustu specialist right? What if, what if we have our common everyday Taijutsu that is used like most normal ninja, but our quirk as it where is grapples, pins and throws? Like a Luchadore or something with beating people by making them bend in ways that really shouldnt?Or we could go acupuncture, but I feel like that doesn't fit in well with us since I imagine we're pretty much in the category of hit it hard enough it breaks.
>>1855834Our nin element is fire right? Maybe something to do with heat dispersion, like our body is able to convert excess body heat to chakra, or we momentarily focus the part of our body through which our body heat is released causing it to become scalding hot, or maybe we just dump body heat extremely efficiently allowing us to do crazy taijutsu shit easier and for longer?Alternatively, our quirk could be related to our apparent lack of need to sleep...
Our training is focused around exercising to near death right?Maybe our thing is super super human endurance which is why our training is effective and why we can go so many days without sleeping
>>1855834>>1855917Can't we just go full shoryuken and leave it at that? A fire-endowed uppercut counterpart of the Leaf Hurricane/Whirlwind?
>>1855995Exactly what I was thinking. All this other stuff is a bit much and kind of out of theme
>>1855954This seems like the most likely option...
And here is the completed version of the Kirai commission.
>Fire element>NinjaClearly we just need to stick to the basics
>>1857256Or go even more basic
>>1856651Jesus christ, why does he look like my dad?
>>1857356Perhaps there is something your dad isn't telling you? Have you tried opening the 8th gate for failing to get an A that one time in math class?
>>1857358Maybe this is why he divorced my mom...he was just as angry too.
>>1855541Not really somthing that can cripple a genin is not as big a deal for a jonin
>>1857386The third gate had us in need of hospital as an extremely fit taijutsu specialist jonin
>>1857388We are old.
>>1857389Old for a ninja, not old. And we're still in incredible shape.
We can do the Knockout Poke thing.Maybe a form of Pressure Point combat that's basically a peasant's variant Gentle Fist style, aimed at shutting down an opponent's nervous system with every blow through the use of chakra? It'd explain why they threw Hinata at us, at least. Teaching her pressure point combat will give her an extra edge over her opponents if she blends it with the more classical Gentle Fist style (which targets Chakra Points instead of Nerve Points)
The talk about fire element made me think of a weird trick Kirai could have developed for dealing with poisons and whatnot. He already infuses chakra into his body to make it hardy enough for taijutsu. So he applies fire to himself, turning his heart into a furnace with fire chakra, he's tough enough to handle it and it burns the poison out.
>>1857461You'd have to raise your body temperature to dangerously high levels to even attempt to do that. This isn't an parasite or bacteria that you can burn out with a fever, it's a chemical, possibly inorganic agent. Your only bet is to hope that it is possible to denature the particular poison used on you by exposing it to immense heat, which I'm fairly sure isn't always possible, and it might not even be possible at all...You can't sweat poison out of your circulatory system...
>>1857388We used the third gate for a day straight
>>1855390Any idea in howmany hours you will start the new thread?
>>1857452She can mix it up, hit them with a little of both so they're royally fucked.
