Shinobi Quest #41This quest takes place within the lands of the Five Great Shinobi Nations (aka Narutoverse) starting roughly around the beginning of the original series. The world of this quest remains similar to the original, with slight but notable differences in certain areas, based upon the passage of time from a single slightly altered event. (It’s a goddamn Naruto Quest, you bastards. Have fun, participate, and write in when you feel inclined. Most of the outcomes of this quest will be determined by you, the players. Critiques and questions are always welcome, as my knowledge of the weeby shit is not all encompassing.)http://pastebin.com/WiPdCqLHPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Shinobi%20QuestLast thread, Tsuki Norihime returned home from her training to discover that her first round match was going to be against her friend and teammate, Nori Uzumaki. Immediately Tsuki began to plan- eventually decided on a rather unorthodox approach: buying up the rights to Ichiraku Ramen, Nori’s favorite restaurant. After a conversation with an impassioned artist, Tsuki headed home to rest up before her final free day before the exams….
>>612411Yeeeah!Welcome back Wargle!
>>612411Time too enter the Chunin exams with a god damn hostage
Where am I? I seem to be in some sort of heavenly thread. Oh thank god its Wargle!
>>612411nice, super excited to participate this time!
We need to be on the top of our game tonight anons, Tsuki will not lose this exam
>>612451I just want to embarrass Minato.
>>612451Don't ever say that.
>>612438>Business ninja Tsuki is on the case!You think Drivers would feel better knowing we're less Thomas Edison and more Howard Hughes?
HA HA HATime for Naruto.
>>612451I for one propose we also use this as a method of expanding character depth. Show we have our dads tenacity and utter cold will too win, no matter the cost, no matter the morality, we will win.
>>612463Why what could possibly go wrong?
>>612451Thanks a lot asshole, now we're going to fail.
>>612473I disagree. The ends do not always justify the means.
>>612490Its not what you believe, its what Tsuki believes
>>612473>>612494Tsuki actually is friends with Nori though.
>>612490I disagree, the end always justifies the means. Any argument otherwise is from those too scared too do what must be done.But seriously lets hold off this argument for now
>>612475At least we haven't made any romance related promises hinging on the outcome of the exam, eh what other death flags do we have around here though, i'm sure we have a few...oh hey... what if the behelit makes Tsuki go full femto during the exams
>>612473>Implying we aren't one of the most ninja genin in the exams due to being able to pull at emotional entanglements and look at things in a somewhat detached manner simultaneously alongside being a functional person.>Deidera's face when SUDDENLY THE RESTAURANT IS A HOSTAGE>DEIDERA'S FACE AGAIN WHEN WE LOOKIT NORI AFTER THE FACT ALL "Nah man, you gotta respect your partners. This was almost a side benefit of getting in on the business"
>>612498yes, yes she is so imagine what we'd do too our enemies. Besides it shows Tsuki was not raised by ninja but rather a cold calculating arms dealer with a little off help from an old ninja fair enough, but an old ninja who ran Black Ops so dark it got removed
>>612490we're essentially mercenaries. the ONLY thing that matters is that we complete whatever job we're given.
eh, after the ramen shop hostage thing is done maybe we could get nori's input on what the decor for the new restaurant should be like.
>>612526Indeed.Though it should be both her and other frequent customers. Like take a poll and see what could be improved.
>>612533yeah, that'd be good.
>>612494Tsuki doesn't believe it either, thats why.She didn't attempt to bribe the examiners during the first portion to get Nori through, choosing to do it the proper way.Her first response towards learning the circumstances of her mothers death was that she'd rather not have those powers either. It was only after speaking with Nori and Hinata that she accepted it.
You wake shortly after dawn- finally giving up some time later, after much tossing and turning.So much for sleeping in.Though, it’s probably for the best- you have a lot to get done today. Between practicing with the orchestra, taking your plans down to Teuchi at Ichiraku Ramen, and preparing yourself for tomorrow, you doubt you’ll have very much free time.Slowly shuffling out of bed, you take seat at your desk to give the paperwork for the “New and Improved” Ichiraku’s another glance.--------------------------------Several hours later, once you’d finalized your plans for the project- and Maru had dragged you downstairs for breakfast- you meet the orchestral director outside, along with his members. Although they were professionals, and had been given ample time to prepare, it would be wise to see them go through the motions a few times in person, just to ensure there would be no slip-ups at the exams. You’re only going to get one shot at this, after all. Your… enthusiasm for watching them seems to make the director nervous- though, he shouldn’t be. Better they mess up now and not during the exams- you wouldn’t have to dock their pay!You chuckle lightly to yourself as the orchestra begins to warm up……----------------------------------------All in all, it could’ve been worse. You only had to correct the director four times- and the last ten attempts were flawless! You would’ve stayed longer, but business waits for no women- even a Norihime.The meeting with Teuchi goes as expected- the man still seems somewhat exasperated by the speed of which this is progressing, but you assure him that, yes, this is happening, and yes, his new physical location will be top of the line.“Oh, and Teuchi? If you and your daughter could come to the exams tomorrow to model the new uniforms, I would greatly appreciate it. I’m planning on letting the world know our grand re-opening, and having you both there would add immensely to that image.”“O-of course, Ms. Norihime! We wouldn’t dream of missing it!” he replies.You smile warmly. “Thank you, Teuchi. I’ll leave you to your clientele- and remember, Ichiraku’s is closed tomorrow, alright?”The ramen chef bows his head- and you bid him farewell. Everything is coming together quite well- and you’ll likely have some spare time this afternoon.
>>612526Well yeah, just because it's a hostage now doesn't mean we can't let her have some say.We're keeping it though.
>>612545For the love of all that is holy lets learn how too put chakra into our swords or go rescue Tonrei before the bunnies drive him into crashing the moon.
>>612558You are metagaming way too hard my man.
>>612558We should test out stellar chakra on those samurai swords and see how it reacts. Better to not be surprised during the exam.
>>612568Wargle went on record saying Stellar melts most metals.
>>612575can it melt steel beams?
>>612578it burns at least as hot as jet fuel, so probably.
>>612578 well, it's not jet fuel.
>>612588Found the shill>>612575Maybe let's not use it on Nori, then?
I'm really looking forward to our announcing the new partnership in a grandiose and over-the-top way as a means of promoting it. I'm laughing like a tard already just thinking about it.
>>612593Area denial maybe. Direct attacks would be really really dangerous.
>>612593Well we gotta deal with those chains if we get caught somehow.
>>612607I'm cool with melting the chains, just not with melting her face off.
>>612607Those chains aren't normal metals. They're the chains used to chain down the nine-tails. 10 bucks says it won't do anything to them.
>>612607Can't let two get a hold on us, or it's game over.
>>612593That would be why we have the restaurant as our nuclear option instead.Fighting on equal terms with Nori means a real risk of blowing one of us to bits
>>612621I'm sure we could heat them up, but yeah. Avoid chains above EVERYTHING else.
The manor is bustling when you return- even more so than yesterday. Pulling a servant aside, you quickly learn why-“Master Yoru has returned from the Capital- with another large contract from the Fire Daimyo! There are rumors of another large hiring wave for the Capital offices and the production facilities- Maru has us working double time to keep the grounds in top shape!”You thank the servant, and let them go about their work- Father’s return is timely. He’ll be in a good mood as well, since the dealings with the Daimyo have seemingly gone well. A shame your schedule wasn’t open enough to pay the Capital a visit.You could go speak with him, but there will always be time for that later. You have precious little time before tomorrow, and you should be sure to use it efficiently. For example….1. Go speak to Danzo about the Flower from the Ruins- you’d like to see how it’s progressing.2. Talk with Father about chakra-conducting metal, bringing the swords you have as an example.3. Take the evening to patrol Konoha instead. There’s been lots of strange folk about recently….4. Actually, it would be nice to destress- maybe you could have a party for your friends? It would be nice to catch up with some of the girls that you haven’t been able to spend time with….5. Go to bed early. No nonsense- you need to be fully rested for tomorrow.
>>612627>>612593We gotta use it in the fight. Or else it'll be nearly impossible to win.
>>612634>2. Talk with Father about chakra-conducting metal, bringing the swords you have as an example.
>>612634>3. Take the evening to patrol Konoha instead. There’s been lots of strange folk about recently….Tsuki believes in putting Konoha first
>>612634>4. Actually, it would be nice to destress- maybe you could have a party for your friends? It would be nice to catch up with some of the girls that you haven’t been able to spend time with….
>>6126341. Go speak to Danzo about the Flower from the Ruins- you’d like to see how it’s progressing.
>>612634>2. Talk with Father about chakra-conducting metal, bringing the swords you have as an example.Daddy time.
>>612634>1. Go speak to Danzo about the Flower from the Ruins- you’d like to see how it’s progressing.I WANT THAT FLOWERBLOOD SUCKING CHAKRA BATTERY AHOY
>>612651>>612634Forgot to mention>Be sure to tell him about Ichiraku
>>612634>2. Talk with Father about chakra-conducting metal, bringing the swords you have as an example.>>612646This is just asking for another Akatsuki encounter. No thanks.
>>612634>3. Take the evening to patrol Konoha instead. There's been lots of strange folk around recently....
>>612634>1. Go speak to Danzo about the Flower from the Ruins- you’d like to see how it’s progressing.>2. Talk with Father about chakra-conducting metal, bringing the swords you have as an example.both are better. See how our projects are coming along
>>612634>4. Actually, it would be nice to destress- maybe you could have a party for your friends? It would be nice to catch up with some of the girls that you haven’t been able to spend time with…
>>612634>3. Take the evening to patrol Konoha instead. There’s been lots of strange folk about recently….It won't win, but I still want to save the guy who can teach us kenjutsu, since I'm pretty sure he gets offed here in the original timeline.
>>612680We aren't getting new weapons by tomorrow. Lets have slice of life fun before the tourney. and snake man 2: serpent boogaloo
>>612634>2 Then >4
>>612689Im on the fence as to whether the sand are actually in on this with orochimaru.Some of the reactions from the sand siblings after tsuki kissed gaara seemed to be quite friendly in nature. Odd, if they were planning to immediately turncoat during the fight.
>>612712maybe they plan on kidnapping her or something, that is a possibility.
Talking to Daddy about weapons n stuff. Writing.
>>612718>>612712Or they can be totally fine with one ninja, but still be up to shit/planning to wreck up a village except ideally for this one girl their brother has a crush on.
>>612712A bit meta, but I doubt Wargle is going to have things pan out like they did in canon. I expect him to surprise us.
Hey, what if our war fan was made of chakra-conducting materials?
>>612739If there's gonna be a rescue arc, it would be interesting to have Tsuki be the one kidnapped.
>>612746>Mai Shiranui using fire moves.gif
>>612755It is gonna be Neji if anyone.
>>612755>>612760Or it'll be a bunch of people getting kidnapped.
>>612737Abit far fetched but possible, though not that likely.Also considering that a good number of akatsuki have been spotted in the village, that might be the main attack force and the sand are actually not involved.
>>612757I got your back senpai
>>612766Thanks anon.>>612764Idk, like what if they'd rather not punch our face in but are willing to if we cause a problem?Leaf's a big place, what're the chances of running into us mid-murder?
>>612755>>612760I can see it going either way. He might even try to grab both-- since Neji has the curse mark but he seems VERY interested in Tsuki. Either way, Sound Four when
>>612782Extremely high, considering we'd literally be in the same arena.
You rummage through your closet for a bit- until you find the two katana from your encounter against the Samurai months ago. While the swords are of a higher quality than the ones from TenTen’s family shop, you’ve avoided using them- chakra conducting metal is valuable, and you have no idea how stellar chakra would react to it.However, you certainly can think of someone who could acquire more of the material, and have a vested interest in seeing what it can do- Father.Locking the sheathed blades unto your belt, you approach Father’s room to find it open, the scent of cigarette smoke wafting gently outwards. You knock gently on the doorframe, as usual.“Ah, Tsuki! Come in. I have much to tell you about my trip- and evidently you have something to show me! What are those?” he responds, spinning in his chair.“Katana taken from some Samurai we fought on the border of the Land of Hot Springs. They’re made out of chakra conducting metal- I wanted to show them to you, and possibly see if you could think of anything.” you explain, unsheathing a blade for demonstration.“Chakra conducting metal- quite the useful alloy. The armor we produce uses high quantities of it- bolters the defenses of those that wear it, for a time. Weapons, though- never made a lot of headway there. Kunai launchers and even heavy senbon casters- they were always far more profitable, being usable by the common man. Though, I wonder- how does it react with your unique ability?” he asks.You figured that question was coming.“To be honest, I’m unsure- these were valuable enough that I didn’t want to waste them. I worry they may melt, honestly.” you answer.“A reasonable concern. Potentially, if we reforged them- but no, even then, I’m not entirely sure they could take the heat. We would need something of much higher quality than these blades- though I wouldn’t exactly rule out other weaponry.” he says examining the free blade.“Other weaponry, Father?” you question.“Oh, I’m rambling- but imagine, instead of a sword, we took the standard kunai launcher as a base? Obviously the entire thing couldn’t conduct your chakra, as it would likely still melt- but if we used the properties of your ability to power it, insulating the chakra conducting pieces with other materials? Pressurised weaponry, superheated projectiles…. Maybe even projecting the energy itself?” Your father muses.Handing the blade back to you, he lights up another cigarette- all black. Norihime brand.“The possibilities are endless, really. It’s entirely new class of weapon. Not something we could widely manufacture, of course- you’d be the only one who could even power the thing. But still, the possibilities….”
>>612875Tsuki with a BFG?
>>612875Give Tsuki a sholder mounted Plasma Caster like a predator? We should also grab some gear from dad for the exam. Nothing too lose after all
>>612875Maybe a war fan?
>>612875chakra plasma gun?could somebody use electric chakra, use that to create a magnetic field, and create a railgun, or would that require a kekki genkai
>>612902I definitely want to the the war fan get some more use
Maybe we can try too use some of those chakra shields but pump stellar chakra out at the last moment to create a death wall of stellar chakra briefly
>>612902>>612916Everything with time.
>>612916You mean our war fan with random symbols on it?>sounds ideal for genjutsu
>>612875This son of a bitch is thinking of a way to use Tsuki's chakra to power a fuckin PLASMA CANNON! Imagine the possibilities when applied to, you guessed it, phasing.
>>612927Genjutsu isn't special snowflake enough anon.
>>612928>phasing>not Stellar druidism
>>612927Never ever>>612930Not every quest should be Boruto Quest
>>612936this is a ROOT Quest
>>612936Not every quest MC needs dramatically different niches. Useful is useful. We have the stats for it, might as well learn what our skill level will allow.
>>612953Yeah we should, but that is in the future.
>>612953Yeah, like puppets.
>>612934JJ in Vulcan Sage Mode.
>>612957Ok, I can get behind that. It's too late now, but I think it could have had some useful purposes in out upcoming match.
That does certainly sound promising- but would likely take a lot of time and money to develop, and you’d need to be there every step of the way, to test the weapons. “Sounds promising indeed- but very time consuming.” “Indeed, it would likely take quite a while. But hey, if you ever have some significant downtime, just say the word- we can take a vacation to the Capital, spend some time at the R&D lab. That would certainly get some heads spinning- though you already seem to have some fans there.” he says, laughing.“I’m… not exactly sure what you mean. Why would I know anyone from the Capital?” you ask.“Well,” he says, holding up his box of smokes, “I met that archeologist you mentioned a while back. Dr. Lemeza Kosugi? He certainly sang your praises- while also petitioning me for funds. Kept going on about the “Biggest Discovery of his life” and a “Stone of Gelel”. I penciled him in for a visit in a few months- I didn’t really have the time to listen to his proposals at the time.Also, I met this funny magistrate- recently promoted, apparently. When he heard our name, he mentioned you- thought it took me a minute to figure out what he was talking about. “Does the "Mighty Moon Princess of Konohagakure" ring any bells?” he teases.Your face erupts into scarlet.“I… I was just trying to keep the assailant distracted!” you stammer.
>>612961I think it might be too late for that one man..
>>612973We're only 12. We've got a long time to try them out at least.
>>612984Puppetry's really something you've got to dedicate almost your whole life to.
>>612984No puppets anon, just take gadgets. I say this as someone who loved the idea of puppets.
>>612972No this is our epitaph now, we shall own it!
>>612972>Stone of GelelOh fuck that movie tho
>>612991>>612992But puppets are gadgets.And Tsuki can get to pre-Exam Kankuro levels if she dedicates herself to it for six months.
>>613008That isn't good enough for a timeskip. And gadgets are more simple devices that don't take months to master.
>>612991We won't know whether or not we can use them effectively unless we try! We haven't even been a shinobi for a year yet, right? It's worth a shot.
>>613008No, no she fucking can't.
>>612995But Yoru just found his power source for flying ship!!
>>613008no. We can use gadgets and gear sure, put puppets, their time has passed
>>613018We know exactly how Puppets would have worked out. If we focused on them from the start it would have been fine, but now it would be too much of a setback to try and focus on using them.
>>613018I agree. We can at least give it a shot and see if it'd be worth it in the long run
>>612972>Also, I met this funny magistrate- recently promoted, apparently. When he heard our name, he mentioned you- thought it took me a minute to figure out what he was talking about. “Does the "Mighty Moon Princess of Konohagakure" ring any bells?” he teases.
>>613021>No, no she fucking can't.She can too.>https://twitter.com/WargleQM/status/739543364215967744Hell, she can be even better with a great teacher.>>613034They're still being used, actually.
>>613008>Tsuki can get to pre-Exam Kankuro levels if she dedicates herself to it for six months.What's your basis for saying that? Kankuro is a talented puppeteer who had loads of experience by pre-exams. We're definitely a highly capable ninja, but we're not some snowflake MC who can do everything effortlessly. Plus, all the good puppet masters are from suna so there'd be nobody to train us.
>>613043That is not good enough. Imagine how much we could progress with everything else in 6 months time.
>>613053See my post >>613043
>>613008I think at this point Tsuki is just an avid admirer of puppet masters. It doesn't fit her skill set much anymore, what with her boing so ninjutsu focused, but she could certainly appreciate the chakra control necessity and the mechanical complexity of the puppets themselves.
>>613053>What's your basis for saying that?https://twitter.com/WargleQM/status/739543364215967744You might have a good point about teachers, though. Maybe Danzo has some contacts? Or we can get dad to hire someone?
>>613063>>613059NO, 6 months is way too much time to get mediocre at something that wouldn't be our primary focus anyways. Stop trying to push it so hard.
Do you think he heard about the *technique* Tsuki used to distract Gaara?
>>612992Me too, I've settled for gadgets as well. We can accomplish much of the same effects with a little imagination.
>>612991>>612992All you would have to do is learn the basics of puppetry, then use gadgets and SCIENCE! to fill in the blanks. They would basically be robots
>>613062>>613063>Stellar chakra threads.
>>613071Speaking of gadgets, I think we're going to need them in our fight against Nori. Any ideas for specific ways we can use gadget power to avoid getting Nori'd?
>>613065I think it could be a good counter to our rather weak Taijutsu (even if we have gotten better), and could help specialize further. If we had puppets now we could, say, use a puppet to distract Nori while we used our big gun ninjutsu.
>>613053>not some snowflake MCActually I think we are.>Weird hair.>Super rich.>Unique power.>'Freinds' with the main characters.>all the boys want her.>being fought over by special summons and the Big Bad.It not a bad thing. But Tsuki is a snowflake.
>>613083Except you can't use chakra if your controlling a puppet.
>>613082>DrugsI.E. Crazy purple knock out gas.
>>613065>o get mediocreExcept Kankuro is good at it. Not mediocre.
>>613083Imagine how much worse our Stellar would be if we focused on Puppets instead. Now stop comparing the two lines, they would be too fucking different.>>6130936 MONTHS>>613086Not all the boys want her, friends is a strong word for Naruto.
>>613080Learning how to use chakra threads however could be pretty damn useful puppets or no. We could use them for levitation or maybe even telekinetically dual wield swords while our other hand uses hand signs. Or maybe even be similar to nori's chains. Hell they could be a damn useful weapon when applying stellar. Just thoughts, hope other anons put it in the back of their minds though.
>>613097Everyone else we know has Taijutsu. I think that puppets would be a unique thing if we didn't boost any of our other stats. Plus we have Norihime Genius, imagine how much shit we could load a puppet with. Gadget plus puppet for more power.
>>613103Boy. Think how much better we would be at everything else. Because that tweet says NOTHING but Puppets for 6 months.
I wonder what It would take to make an AI in this setting or if we could just stuff a biju in a robot body...
>>6131036 months spent literally in any number of better ways. Stop shilling, puppets are over and done.
I just want to help Toneri
>>613082Maybe. If we disorient her, her speed won't mean anything if she can't hit us. Stellar Thunder makes us produce blinding light, but we're trying to keep that up our sleeve for now. So perhaps a flash bang or concussion grenade of some sort? Alternatively like the other anon suggested, some sort of debilitating gas, we bring our masks and make sure it can filter it out. We could give ourselves a significant advantage.
>>613110Should have brought that up months ago when we were still shit at Taijutsu and had legendary swords to use in the future then.
“Well, it must’ve worked, he held you in quite high regard as well. Never a bad thing to have a government official in your debt.” he says with a sly smile.“Speaking of the government…..” you say, desperately trying to change the topic.“Ah, yes, the meeting with the Daimyo. It went quite well- the instability of the northern regions has concerned him greatly- he’s even considering sending in his troops to restore order. Of course, they would need to remain there, to keep the peace…..” Your father laughs heartily.“But, even if he decides to commit to that, he’ll need to arm his men much more than he has in the past- and we’re just the people for the job.” He says with a wink.“New weapons and armor to be distributed solely to the Daimyo’s government. He also wants to expand reliable rail service across the Land of Fire, with all tracks leading back to the Capital. Thankfully the advances our allies in the Land of Snow have made will come in great handy here- and it’s a project he’s quite eager to pursue. If we had sole contractual authority over the development of the national rail system….” Your father is practically drooling.You cough gently to get his attention.“Ah, right, sorry. Always looking toward the future, my dear. It’s a blessing and a curse, sometimes. Regardless, I won’t keep you. I know you have much to do- keep these swords for the time being- they’re of good make. Those Samurai from the Land of Iron take great pride in their weapons.”The irony of a Shinobi using a Samurai’s weapons to fight other Shinobi isn’t lost on you- their leader Yojimbo certainly seemed to have a deep-seated hatred for them.As you sheath the blade and prepare to leave, your father hugs you from behind.“Love you, my little shinobi. I know you’ve been doing a lot of thinking- and it’s ok if you haven’t forgiven me. Your mother would be proud to see you now.” You rest your free hand on his, for just a moment- before he lets go.
Can't wait for Gaara to lose his shit y'all.
>>613122I wasn't here then, and am trying to make up for lost time.
>>613132Can't wait to whoop Gaara's emo ass.
>>613093He wasn't that great in the chuunin exams, anon. He was ok, but nothing to write home about.>>613086Fair point. I mean we're not *so much* of a snowflake that we can just do everything without major downsides. All indications are that puppetry is not something that can be done by ninja very well unless it's their main vocation.Also >'Freinds' with the main characters.I wouldn't say we are that much. Nori is an OC, Hinata is a side character, the rest are only vaguely friends. We don't really know Naruto and it seems we barely know Sasuke. Outside our team, we're interacted mostly with InoShikaCho, which at this stage of the story is still the scrubbiest of all scrub teams.Happening to have Danzo as a cross between kindly uncle and manipulative overlord, and one of the very strongest ninja as our sensei, is pretty damn snowflake though. (Although does Itachi even have his mangekyou sharingan here?)
>>613113Says you, faggot. I ain't gonna drop the puppet brainstorming just because you want it to stop.
>>613124>Your mother would be proud to see you now.”Let's wear her headband, if we have it.Not on our head,, obviously. But on like our arm or waist.
>>613133But it's not helping anything anon. Bring it up when we train not now. It's fucking annoying to read the same shit again.
>>613133We tried before friend. It was a cool idea. Bring it up again when we have the option for a long training soujourn.
>>613132Were going to do pretty much what Naruto did for him except he's going to also want to marry us so honestly not that different from canon
>>613142iirc we already do that... or was that ebisu's?
>>613125Are you baiting or just not getting it? 6 months to get where a character is now in an art is not worth it.>>613133I wasn't there either, but I moved on. So can you.>>613140Have fun wasting time then, you could just brainstorm gadgets instead.
>>613139Because that's all he used.While we can use more than just puppets.And Tsuki's a genius. He's not.
>>613139No, he doesn't
>>613142Theirs just one problem with that. She was a Kumo ninja. Which means her headband is not a leaf headband. I can't remember if she was allowed to be a ninja for the leaf
>>613150You can't use other techniques when a puppet is active. Also if we spent 6 months on puppets we basically would have nothing else. The genius thing applies to whatever we focus in.Stop trying to shill something when we can't even act on it. All it does is cause arguments like now.
>>613157Yeah, she's from Kumogakure. They're hostile to the Leaf, and vice versa.>>613148We do neither of that. We have Ebisu's in a case or something.
>>613161>Also if we spent 6 months on puppets we basically would have nothing else.Except we have a lot of other skills and techniques.>>613149>Are you baiting or just not getting it?Yes.
>He also wants to expand reliable rail service across the Land of Fire, with all tracks leading back to the Capital. Thankfully the advances our allies in the Land of Snow have made will come in great handy here- and it’s a project he’s quite eager to pursue. If we had sole contractual authority over the development of the national rail system….” Your father is practically drooling.So, rail is a recent invention? I'm getting a sudden urge to set up a trading company in ninja india and start taking over states directly to protect our business interests...
>>613168You win, I'm mad. I'm just gonna hide your post now. Well memed. Someone acting so fucking stupid on purpose baffles me.
>>613168we can't use those techniques when a puppets active though (besides taijutsu anyway), can't toss fire balls and control a puppet at the same time for some stupid reason, and with tsuki primarily being a ninjutsu user that would severely cripple her.
You know, we should at least tell Teuchi that we're doing a publicity stunt for his restaurant during the exams, and the actions we are about to take in no way reflect the security of his business. So we don't freak him the fuck out.
>PuppetsI thought this died thirty threads agoPls anons.Pls.
>>613187The bait is too strong, I'm sorry.
>>613185yeah... I'd really rather not spook a business partner with this stunt.
>>613187What is dead may never die!!!
>>613180Thank you. And I do think we should at least try them out. See how it feels.If we don't like it after trying it, then I'll drop it.
>>613185>>613195Seconded.>>613187I started joking about it, then it started snowballing.
>>613185No we need his reactions to be real or Nori might pick up whats going on
>>613179Norihime East trading eh? How very.... Exploitable >>613180pic related >>613196But rises again harder and stronger
>>613187Go back to writing slave!And gimme my eldrich moon bunnies!
>>613209>tfw you forgot the pic welp
>>613212NO, NOT THAT ARGUMENT TOO
we need NEW stupid arguments if we want to move forward.What is/are Tsuki's favorite pizza toppings?
>>613227Pepperoni and Cheese, she isn't a savage.
>>613227Spinach and anchovies.
>>613227Tomato or BBQ sauce?
>>613227ham and pepperoni, red onion
>>613231Goes great with ham.
>>613227>>613230I could see her as a 5-cheese pizza type of gal, with Yoru being a supreme pizza loverluxury only boi
>>613227Probably pepperoni and varius meats. and jalapeño
>>613227sun dried tomato, artichoke, mushrooms, garlic and chicken.
>>613254Now I'm hungry and sleep, fuck.
>>613243>>613231you fucking savages>>613231>>613252better, but I could see Shikamaru as more of a Hawaiian pizza type>>613230too plain for a princess>>613245Nori is the one that loves meat, anon>>613257I could see it>>613260the real answer
>>613257Mmmmm...Jeez I'm glad we have a high post limit.
>>613092Would knock-out gas work? Seems to me that a ninja would easily avoid it. Or is the point to deny an area of the ring to Nori and sit there with our mask on?>>613121A flashbang sounds great. Do they exist thoughFor my part I want to endorse smoke grenades and trip wires of the sort I believe Sasuke used against orochimaru in the forest - if we're quick at placing them, anyway. I don't know whether we have the skills to use them properly.Also does my sneaky trick sound workable:>smoke grenades down>pop many regular clones>plus one shadow clone>smoke clears>Nori uses her genius-level intellect to work out the shadow clone is us and chains it, thinking she's won>We pop out from our disguise as a rock and hit her with a fire dragon
>>613268I tasted mustard
>>613227what about hinata
>>613227Sausage and onion.
>>613257Man, that actually sounds awesome.
You spend the little free time you have staring out your window out to Konoha below. On your desk, you have a few keepsakes- Ebisu’s charred headband, nearby to mother’s- the symbol of Kumogakure crossed out on it’s face. You knew precious little of why she chose to leave- according to Father, it wasn’t something she spoke about often. You knew Father’s travels took him all over- those early days of the Third Shinobi World War is where much of his fortune was made. He lost a lot of travelling companions during that time- and even sold the information he learned about enemy nations while traveling to Danzo- but when he met your mother, the story changed. He said he found her wounded, far from the Kumo border- a victim of some skirmish, most likely. He had connections at a nearby temple, and brought her there for healing; though it quickly became evident that was the battles were flaring up again, he’d need to stay for some time.You aren’t sure if it was Father that convinced her to leave- he really doesn’t seem the type, although he can certainly be persuasive. He also isn’t the most reliable storyteller- his propensity to embellish stories always has you taking him with just a grain of salt.Regardless, the villages are hostile now- you suppose the truth of the matter will likely always be a little obscured.Changing into your pajamas, you tuck yourself into bed, grabbing Yume for emotional support. In some ways, you’ll always miss your mother. You cannot help but wonder just how different you would be if she had been around- and what things she could’ve taught you. But, you also like your life now- your friends, and your aspirations. There’s no telling how different life would be- or even how you would be. It’s a strange thought- and one that eventually drifts off into sleep.
>>613273Hey, I like it so far. Could use some tweaking but I like the general idea.
>>613276maximum cheese, because dairy. Also cream sauce rather than tomato.
>>613288>He had connections at a nearby templeHa.
>>613288But, you also like your life now- your friends, and your aspirations. There’s no telling how different life would be- or even how you would be. It’s a strange thought- and one that eventually drifts off into sleep.OH YEAH NOW THATS WHAT IT CALL CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
>>613296OOOOOOOHHHHNow I are of understanding comrade
This was the best my googlefu could do for rogue kumo headband
>>613316Looks like a turd
Dawn…. Again.Itachi’s training certainly straightened out your daily routine- even if you really didn’t want it to.Might as well get ready, then.Dressing in the Silver and Fur outfit you requested, you take the time to fit your utility belt around the waist- it may clash slightly, but your tools are important.Smoke bombs, Wire, Kunai, Shuriken, Explosive tags- you make sure you have an ample supply of each, just in case.You reattach the Samurai’s Katana to your belt- and take a breath.You take some time to do your hair properly, and give your nails a fresh coat of paint. As the sun climbs higher, you feel like you should be ready- but before you leave, there’s something you need to say.Walking over to your desk, you address the two headbands.“Mother- Ebisu-sensei- I’ll make you both proud.”It’s not exactly a prayer- but you’ve never really been the praying-type.Heading downstairs, you can see Maru has prepared a light breakfast- to go, thankfully, as you don’t have the time to be wrangling with her this morning. As you eat, the din of the Orchestra warming up reaches your ears- good. They know their places, and when to play; it’s almost time for the show to begin.Once you’ve finished, you start the long walk down to the arena. It’s been six months since the last exams ended- and you’re determined to leave these as the victor.
>>613366No he'll blow the whole thing if he knows Nori will see that he isn't reacting honestly
>>613366You mentioned that you'll be mentioning Ichiraku's during the exams. You just didn't specify.
>>613366This>>613368Granted I'm sure he can figure it out faster given how much money we threw at him.
Right, I'm off to bed just in time to miss the action.Don't lose, anons.
>>613377As long as his first reaction is honest then thats all we need
>>613378>implying we will actually fight this thread
>>613382we are preparing to fight hunger with Ichiraku Ramen, a proud member of the Tsuki Corp family
Because you left so early, you have little company on Konoha’s streets. When you reach the Arena, the only people that seem to be about are the tenders- though you quickly spot Genma among them.You hail him, and approach. For a split second, you see concern on his face, but it’s gone nearly as quickly as it arrived.“Morning, Tsuki. Ready for the first round?” He asks.“As I’ll ever be. Should I head in?” you respond.“Yeah, should be fine. I imagine the others will be arriving soon. This place will crazy within a few hours. Be sure to put on a show, yeah?” He directs, giving you a thumbs up.You return the gesture, and head inside. To your surprise, however, you aren’t alone as you enter the arena bleachers-Standing alone in the center of the ring is Gaara- just sort of staring off into the distance.That kid certainly does rub you the wrong way. Why is he just.. standing there?You consider saying something- then again you don’t think you want to draw his attention onto you.You…1. Call out to him.2. Don’t. Best to stay away from him.
>>612991Honestly, ninjutsu is something you got to dedicate your whole life to.Puppetry has the advantage in that in everythign it requires we have intense buffs in it. We can easily master jutsu, our control is near unmatchable, and we can easily invent new puppets fast enough (And have enough manpower to manufactor them) that we could make a new puppet for every major mission, then throw it out and never use it again.In fact I'd go to say the only reason we don't appear DESIGNED to go to puppets is the fact all the players seem to loathe the very idea of doing it to the point it never even got to get to vote.Granted we don't NEED puppets, but if there is ANYONE who could use puppets, its Tsuki.That is also not including the whole meta of "Wargle would not let us make a character unplayable because it will destroy his own quest". This isnt dnd, Wargle only has to balance the game for one person.There is only ONE reason not to take puppets, which is the same reason not to take Rabbits, or take taijutsu, and it is "I dont want to use puppets I find them lame."And thats a completely reasonable reason because the only arguement a pro puppet guy has is "I think puppets are cool and I want them."
>>613393>1. Call out to him.
>>613393>2. Don’t. Best to stay away from him.

>>613416his cheers might be more murder presents. not sure if want, considering where he'd get them.>>613418Gotta befriend the shit out of gaara. Even if I don't personally prefer husbandoing him.
>>613393>1. Call out to him.One day he won't be such an ass, we don't know that yet, but we were probably his first kiss regardless.
People stop voting.
>>613432he was tsuki's first as well iirc.
>>613436>implying it wouldnt have been papa
Well, he is the only other person here- he’s sure to notice you eventually. It would be more awkward if you didn’t at least attempt conversation.You hop down into the arena, and which point, Gaara immediately shifts into a battle stance.“You.” Woah, now, that isn’t what you wanted.“Yes, Me. Tsuki Norihime; pleased to meet you… Gaara, right?” you say, holding your hands up.“What do you want, girl?” he spitsPleasant.“Tsu-ki. No-ri-hi-me.” You pronounce slowly.“I just thought I’d make conversation, since we’re the only two people here.” You explain, inching closer to the redhead.“Stay back! If you come any closer, I’ll kill you. You got through my sand before- it won’t happen again.” he growls.You stop.“Ok, I won’t come any closer. We can talk from here.” you say, although at this point you have to force the smile. [Roll some dice to attempt to talk to Gaara! 1d100, first three.]

>>613441>>613442>>613444WHELPSee I was right about the clowns...oh wait they've started eating the dorfs.
>>613455Well it could have been worse.
>>613455GOD DAMNITLOVE IS OVER
>>613455Plays a sad tune on my kazoo....
>>613456this is gaara we're talking about....it can't get much worse
>>613455>Gaara>The only social roll Tsuki ever failedHmm.... interesting.We'll have to work on that and wear him down a bit.
>>613459We could have rolled a 1.
>>613457Theres still hope anon, when were fighting him in tailed beast form we can have a whole emotional monologue about how we know how it feels to be raised as a weapon
>>613464>But we weren't...
>>613455Yeaaaa.. Probably should have expected a DC. Well he's the only one in here I believe. Worse comes to worse we pull out afterglow to dodge him. I don't think he's one to change up his tactics much, so if we face him later I don't think there will be all that much more he can do knowing some of our power.
>>613465Holy fuck. Did someone drawfag this?
>>613464guess your right still disappointed
>>613466We had our genes messed with to make us into a super weapon anon
>>613469Stay salty anon
>>613465Can Itachi see why kids love the taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch?
>>613455too be fair, I think the fact that we tried means it wasn't a COMPLETE failure.
>>613472Right.But we weren't explicitly raised that way.
>>613480If you think Danzo and Dad didn't push us to be a ninja by this point I don't know what to tell you
>>613480What's the Skip?The ninja's are twisting the truth to their own advantage?Stone the crows, Skip!I'd never have guessed!
“How are you liking Konoha so far?”No response.“Are you happy your sister made it to this round as well?”No reply..“I was in the Land of Wind a few months ago- it certainly does have a unique charm to it….”Nothing.As you’re about to try another avenue, you notice grains of sand beginning to pool around Gaara- and around you, as well.Quickly, you utilize the shunshin to get back to the stands.“You talk too much.” Is all he says, glaring your direction.The tense moment holds for a few seconds, until a feminine voice you recognize come from near the back of the arena.“My little brother isn’t much for conversation. I’d suggest leaving him be.”Temari- the only member of the three you had met before the exams.“We are unlikely to be opponents, so I’ll give you that warning. If you value your life, you’ll heed it.” she explains. “I didn’t need your help, Temari.” Gaara growls.“Sure, Gaara. Whatever.” the blond shinobi says, walking over to a far way and leaning on it for support.Which Temari here, Gaara doesn’t seem as likely to attack you- but he’s still glowering in your direction. Probably best to keep an eye on him until the others arrive…----------------------------------------------------After another hour, the other contestants begin to enter the arena one by one. There are even people beginning to take their seats in the stands, though general seating isn't open for another half hour.You see both Hinata and Nori enter- Hinata waves, and you quickly wave back.You and Nori meet each other's gaze briefly, but she only smirks in response.
>>613501>Gaara doesn't love us any more
>>613504I mean, it isn't any worse than before.
>>613504Or he does, but Shukaku doesn't.
>>613504he never did
>>613504he just needs some convincing.Tsuki would make an excellent YandereWonder what sort of check we'll have to make too force Nori too stand down? Her Int is really bad and this is all set up perfectly.
>>613501JUST ACCEPT US, GAARA
>>613510Probably one to see if we can make her not just reckless charge us anyways.
>>613501at least our possible future sister in law is looking out for us. kinda.
>>613510I'm expecting default fail.
>>613501grin right back.
>>613501>off phone nowWe're gonna work on that.
>>613510I don't really see her as yandere as much as the dominant person.
we have only card to play next time we have to distract GaaraTsuki must flash her Tsukis
>>613501>You and Nori meet each other's gaze briefly, but she only smirks in response.>tfw Nori doesn't take the bait and just fights us, not even stopping to think about our offer.>tfw we bought out a small shop and did all this planning for nothing>tfw we lose in the first round
>>613520she's 12 bro
>>613520Anon no!We aren't a slut!
>>613517This, let's show our war face.
>>613525>>613520Exactly. Tsuki doesn't have Tsuki's yet.
>>613525she's not real bro. cartoons are ink and paperand Gaara is 12
Still bullshit Minato rigged the exams for his kid. Even worse than last year his kids team was split among the brackets.
>>613535we ain't no stepping stone.and nothing on this year could step hard enough anyway
>>613535>riggedIf you say so
>>613521Still own the most popular restaraunt in the village.We'll make our money back easily, then have a decent stream of income regardless.If she doesn't take the bait of her favorite restaurant being in peril.Best part? She'll still pay us for the privilege of eating there, and she'll know each and every time she orders a bowl of ramen.
>>613535>D. Confront minato about rigging the exams to make it a challenge for his kid, ignoring the burden he placed on other, normal ninja without kage genes and sannin trainingThanks, douche.
>>613535Is it really "rigged" if she loses in the first round?:'D
>>613515She just wants to tap our ass.
>>613547Its more stacked against her since shes on the longer tournament path with guaranteed tough opponents no matter what.
>>613547Yes Becuase who knows weaknesses better than teammates? Just salty in two fights our entire team can be eliminated.
A short time later, Genma takes a seat in the proctor’s area- though, wasn’t Hayate supposed to be monitoring the third round?You hope he’s alright.“Genin! Congratulations again for reaching this final round of the Chunin Exams! With only eleven of you left, you are most certainly among the top in your class! Now, you will have one hour until the first match will begin- remember, you are putting on a show for the shinobi community, and we are all watching!” He announces.Right, you’ve heard as much before. It’s a talent showcase as much as a tournament- aiming to impress is just as valid as a strategy as winning- though winning is certainly preferable. Thinking back to the bracket, Hinata’s match against Lee should be first, followed with your match against Nori. Even now, you can see the Orchestra taking their positions in the stands- everything is falling into place. Hopefully Teuchi will arrive within a short timeframe as well- and then the game can truly begin. Danzo and Father should be watching- and when it comes together, you can only imagine thunderous applause.You can’t help but smile.
>>613565and then there is an explosion
>>613565>Wasn’t Hayate supposed to be monitoring the third round?we could have prevented this
>>613572We really couldn't have.
>>613573We actually might have if we went on patrol.
>>613572>>613575No, not really.
And we're gonna put the thread on PAUSE for now- we've got plenty of bump limit left, and we can get right into the fights when we start back up.I'm also really gassed tonight for some reason, and want to make sure I do this fight justice- along with the ones that follow.We'll resume Saturday evening- and burn this motherfucker down.@WargleQM for excusesAs usual free to chat and ask questions. This board is slow enough I don't really mind. Please don't archive this thread- I'll do it next time.As a bribe, have some in-progress art from our lovely drawfag~
>>613575We could have spotted the murder sure, but stop it?
>>613577danke for runningwhat would have successful talk to Gaara roll look like?
>>613577Rest well Wargle.
>>613578A distraction or raising the alarm would have cut that duel short. Like a dragon head fireball into the sky.
>>613577Thanks for the run, Wargle!
>>613577>We'll resume Saturday eveningFuck.Got a doctor's thing going on. So I''ll be fucking out of it for that day.Hopefully this goes well.Also, pic is cute. Though Hinata looks like a trap in that.
>>613577Thanks for running Wargle.Isn't Tsuki supposed to be darker?
>Tsuki still isn't fighting in the exams>Were still playing AmosGod tonight been one giant cock tease
Their faces are wack in the pic.
>>613579You could've cracked the shell a little.>>613585Sorry, really. I meant to get a lot more done, but I was writing slower than usual, and I wasn't really happy with most of it. Even my normal threadly red bull didn't help.
Poor drawfaghe arts for the quest and anon can only poo-poo it
>>613588drink coffee. Better than that sugary mess.
>>613587Key word "in-progress"He's also working after he fucked his shoulder, so be nice. Or don't, I can't make ya or anything.
>>613588Don't worry about it I don't mind really since I know you'll come through
>>613587Yeah, drawfag ain't too good with faces.Everything else is pretty good though.Ganbatte, drawfag. Study hard and git gud.
>>613577Awe that's adorable. Get some sleep, champ.
>>613584Artist interpretation. She is a smidge darker than that in my head- but her mother wasn't particularly dark, either. She wasn't ChoCho tier Kumo ninja. Light caramel or coffee /w creamer is how I looked at it. I'm also not good with art, or colors. >>613590Coffee makes me violently ill, unfortunately.
>>613591Hey I am nice! Sometimes. But no really I think okayish but the faces man. Also sucks he fucked his shoulder hope he doesn't strain it more.
>>613596what a pity.Or mountain dew. Most amount of caff for any soft drink.
got drunk as a skunk and decided why the fuck not. have another drawfag's wip of our darling heroine
>>613600Bro, that's pretty good. I hope you finish it. and make tsuki the right shade
>>613600color her in Wesley Snipes dark
>>613600Remember, A-cups at 12 mean DD's at 16. I know you'll do us proud.>Pic of Tsuki at 21... I hope
>>613600More drawfaggotry is always welcome!I keep it all in a pile like a dragon guarding it's hoard of treasure.I also love seeing multiple interpretations of the character, so please share if/when you complete it, if you're happy with it!It gives me the warm fuzzies.
>>613596Tea has about half as much caffeine as coffee, but you can drink a fuckton of it, like it's water.
>>613607DARKNESS, EVERYBODY! DARKNESS IS SPREADING!
>>613612I should start drinking Tea again. I used to brew it with loose leaves and mix it with honey. Shit was good.
>>613614>mixing with honey
>>613605I'll try and finish it in time for the next thread>>613607thy will be done
>>613577Thanks for running. Hope you feel better next thread.
>>613619Not every cup.My taste in teas is pretty similar to Tsuki's though. Fight me anon.
iced tea is best tea>>613620sweet
>>613607>>613610>>613613Now you just need Orochi dressed as Rick James rubbing his muddy boots on her pregnant belly shouting 'Fuck yo baby!'.
Just imagine it nori, the family goes out for ramen but you have to stay behind? What kind of life is that? Isn't it better to capitulate to my demands?How can you be so evil?A shinobi uses every tool at her disposal.
>>613614Try this tea called cascara. It's made from the berries of the coffee bean and has just as much caffeine. Though it might still make ya sick if coffee does
>>613858Alternatively, cocaine has great "awareness" properties.
>>614270Too short lived for me.
Gents I have an idea. When we next get a chance and free time I propose we go too the moon too rescue the war orphan. Once we hae saved him if we do not get the Bunny contract we can get him too take it. Moon boy likly has a few nice never before seen jutsu we can use in our secret ROOT/ANBU life. Given that we are keeping the necklace and Rabbits secret for now I think this could be a nice compromise (unless the bunnies have some awesome summoning stuff going on). I think we can turn the bunnies too our side once they are back in the world, their age of isolation over and begin too feel life again.
>>615742Recruiting moon boy for Root for sure, and I'm sure we can somehow turn the bunnies to our side. We'll be the ones saving them afterall. I'd like them as a summon, their tied to Kaguya but we don't need to choose them both. I feel like most anons are against Kaguya rather than the rabbits.
>>615814Personally I would like the bunny contract but it's down the the vote in the end. I just figure we'd be the best new "Queen" for them and given we are their only friend I think it'd be nice too lead them into a new world.Also whats not too like about Cuthulu Bunnies, Kaguya is the "Usurper" the spirits warned us about not them
Can't we go for the IC route of ignoring this moon bullshit as nonsense from some manipulative spirit? Because that's how I'm seeing it. Remove bunnies.
>>616049>Can't we just get rid of something just because I don't like it?
>>616049I view Kaguya as the threat, but aside from that thing where she tried to comfort us by looking like our mum, she's been ok, a little bit socially inept yes but thats the only time we've dealt with her and as miss guided as her methods may be we genuinely felt bad for us.As far as the Bunnies go, they like all the summons are nature spirits who happened too side with Kaguya way, way back. Times change and we can change them. The rabbits aint evil at the moment they are just really bitter which is understandable.I'd argue its more IC to go check them all out and stuff because so far the Bunnies are the only ones trying to help us. Until the Four Spirits pull their fingers out and do something useful.
>>616049Moon Bunny fo lyfe yo.
>>616049I feel like we should explain to the bunnies why bunny supremacy or really any form of supremacy bullshit is inherently destructive to the world overall.Humans deserve a spot in the world too.It's about checks and balances.
>>616291That's a bit timid, isn't it? Why not explain to them that we're all about human supremacy and we're going to fly to their moon in a chakra-powered rocket, plant a flag there and stick them in a reservation.
>>616384>alternate route>Tsuki's favorite ramen topping becomes roasted rabbit
I actually think that Tsuki could get on board with Pains plan in a little bit of sense. You can't get rid of human nature without getting rid of humanity. So we go for the next best thing, you hold a gun too everyone's head and tell them too get along or get killed/shinjued/vanished.It's pretty much what we do already just taking the next step. We obey the law because if we don't we suffer for it. Same rule here, do as your fucking told or you die and everyone you love dies so don't try to be a martyr.As Arms dealers/Danzo supporters I think it'd be a valid path, we know you can't change humanity but what you can do is force compliance. Enslave with capitalism then lock them the fuck down. Tsuki would not settle for maybes and hopes, we work on results and force=results, not working? apply more force, mental, physical and spiritualBloody hell things could get dark
>>616780I'm saying Tsuki would see the logic with Pain's gun to the head of the world plan
>>616447That's a ton of implications about Tsuki and what we're already doing you've got there.Tsuki explicitly doesn't give a shit about rules or laws except where they benefit her if "ROOT DANZO" is any indication.We aren't forcing compliance to peace, peace is bad for our profit margin, however, if they choose to be so, maybe Norihime brand snacks and medical care will pick up the ball the weapons division is dropping.Think of it like a spider's web, you don't have to be caught in one spot. There are other spots to be.But regardless of where you go, regardless of what you do or where you turn.The Norihime Corp is there to look out for you, one way, or the other.Free will is important anon. It's what allows people to be satisifed, and sing our praises and mean it.
>>616780Your plans are bad and you should feel bad, said this at the start of the thread and saying it now.
>>616823>Tsuki explicitly doesn't give a shit about rules or laws except where they benefit her if "ROOT DANZO" is any indication.My impression is still that Tsuki wants to revive ROOT purely for Konoha, not for personal gain. I think Tsuki is very loyal, at worst misguided and at best one of the few willing to do what needs to be done to protect the village.
>>616845I fucking love no sleep, I mean >>616447>>616794
>>616794I know, I read what you said.It was just edgy as fuck and, frankly, retarded.
>>616851Her being loyal to the village and seeing it as in everyone's best interest has absolutely nothing to do with the legality of the act.

As the stands begin to fill, you are given permission to disperse- and to be ready within 15 minutes of your match being announced. You have a few options as to where you want to sit, so you’ll need to make your choice quickly.You…1. Sit with Hinata and Nori- even though it might be awkward.2. Try to find InoShikaCho in the stands.3. Try to find Father and Danzo in the stands.4. Try to find Itachi in the stands.5. Try to find Team Guy in the stands.

You decide to find Father and Danzo- though it shouldn’t be too hard.You head upstairs, towards the private boxes. Many have shinobi guarding the entrance, but only one has men clad in chakra-armor, wielding state of the art K500-class launchers. “Ms. Norihime. Master Yoru and Danzo are inside.” They say with a sharp salute.Soldiers from the Capital- probably some of the Daimyo’s men. A gift, perhaps?“At ease, boys.” You tease.One of the men opens the door for you, revealing Father’s private box.There are six more men in here, all wearing the same gear as the men outside- while your father and Danzo rest comfortably in their seat.“Are all these guards really necessary, Father?” you question aloud while entering.“Ah, my dear daughter has come to visit!” Yoru says, standing up to greet you.“Don’t mind them- they’re on order from the Daimyo to keep me safe. Seems the Fourth and his men aren’t the only ones worried about something happening. After you left, Maru basically had the house put on lockdown. Crazy.” He continues- although he certainly doesn’t seem that worried.The Daimyo though, that’s interesting.After giving father a hug, you turn to Danzo, who seems cheerful.“Ready to show the world your talent, Tsuki?” he asks.You are- and you even have your insurance.From a sealed container on your belt, you produce the Ichiraku’s contact- or rather, a copy of it. The real one is back at the manor- which as you’ve now learned, is under heavy guard. “I’ll be ready- even if this doesn’t work.” You say with a smirk.From below, you hear Genma voice echo through the arena.“For our first match, we have a contest of pure taijutsu skill! Would Hinata Hyuga and Rock Lee please report to the arena grounds! You have fifteen minutes!”“So, what he means is, it’ll be boring.” Yoru says, snacking on some popcorn.“Yoru, Taijutsu is an essential skill for a shinobi to have. Besides, the Hyuga are some of Konoha’s taijutsu masters- they’re world renowned for their ability.Yoru rolls his eyes, then turns to the older shinobi.“There’s only so much to punches and kicks, Danzo- I want to see some fireworks! Even those dour monks knew some pretty flashy stuff- besides, I won’t be able to see it all that well from up here.” He says, tapping his right eye.“Not like you.”Danzo grumbles, but doesn’t respond further. What does father mean?
>>622412>besides, I won’t be able to see it all that well from up here.” He says, tapping his right eye.>“Not like you.”>Danzo grumbles, but doesn’t respond further. What does father mean?YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Alright we have our entrance music anons, but what are we going to play for other moments, like when we reveal stellar?I don't know when but I really want to have them play https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEEPosF-tNU&index=41&list=PLjmJ0uCpE8a--AWl38sQscB-JYz7tvg20>>622468>You remember when you went for a bite of your ramen and it was all gone? IT WAS ME NORI
>>622473Jesus fucking christ, I made that ages ago. Cant believe someone saved it.
>>622437>>622450>>622458Just pointing it out here: What daddy dearest said actually would make perfect sense to anyone involved in martial arts. If you're a dedicated fighter your brain's ability to process sensory input increases drastically because it has to. When Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris went through the fight choreography for Colosseum the director had to ask them to slow down because the cameras they were using didn't have a high enough frame capture rate. The footage looked jerky.
>>622450>oh shit he's still got an uchieye>an uchieye>implying he's only got one
>>622514>implying Danzo isn't a bunch of eyeballs in a Danzo suit
>>622529>Danzo is Carl>Yoru is Frylock>Maru is either Master Shake or Meatwad

Before you have time to ask, there is a loud CRASH of a gong- likely an alert for the match about to begin.Looking down from the box, you can see them- Hinata on the far side of the arena, with Lee’s telltale green jumpsuit closer to you. Father does have a point- they are somewhat far away. You should be able to follow them fine, but most non-shinobi probably won’t be able to, not from this distance.Genma’s voice again rings out- this time over a loudspeaker.“Ladies and Gentleman! We present to you, our first round bout! Hinata Hyuga VS. Rock Lee!”“......BEGIN!”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5C9QVGjvqj0The two shinobi almost immediately disappear- before they reappear in the center of the arena, Hinata blocking a powerful kick from Lee. The two continue exchanging blows at a rapid pace, though Hinata seems to always have a counter for what Lee tries. Likely the effect of the Byakugan- She sees all of Lee’s moves coming. To his credit, though, he seems to be moving fine- so she hasn’t scored any solid hits.After a few more failed attempts, Lee backs off.He points to someone in the crowd- you can’t see who- and then yells loudly across the arena.“Guy-sensei! I humbly ask permission to release my training weights!”As if on queue, you hear Guy’s loud voice in response-“Granted, my young student! Show her your burning youthful passion!”Behind you, Yoru nearly chokes on a piece of popcorn.“T-Tsuki! Isn’t this a bit public for something like that?” he coughs.“No, that’s just how Guy-sensei is sometimes. He prattles on about things like this all the time.” you explain.Turning back to the action while your father recovers, you can see Lee has taken his training weights out of his jumpsuit- just like you remember both him and Sakura doing during the first round.Like a streak of green, he’s off again- straight towards Hinata.In response, you see her drop into a different stance- before she begins spinning rapidly. Revolving Heaven, if you remember the name correctly. Lee jumps over the attack, barely managing to avoid it- before landing safely on the other side. As he turns to face Hinata, though, she’s already burst from the whirl of chakra- trying to catch Lee on the back foot. He seems surprised, but the engagement seems to go as before, with neither side giving much ground at all. Eventually Lee pulls away again- panting, but with a broad smile across his face.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=M8mECM7H7oU Maybe not the lyrics so much?
>>622733I can't wait to see what dad has to say about our own names
Still think we should play this for Afterglowhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GsQSJzmd1A&index=39&list=PLjmJ0uCpE8a--AWl38sQscB-JYz7tvg20
>>622853While I agree I want too play this when we fight Gaara, darting around him and making him beat himself up with his own fistshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8k6SS6uWI-k&feature=youtu.be&t=24
>>622861We didn't hire any Kumo ninjas for our chorus
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgzGwKwLmgMThe only real theme for afterglow.
>>622900Doubt they have guitars anon

>>622912Violins will work just as well.
>>622900Seconding this.>>622912They have radios and television, why wouldn't they have guitars?
He says something, which you cannot quite make out- before taking a different stance. His muscles swell slightly, and charges back in. Hinata, though, doesn’t let him get close. Her arms, now seemingly rubbery in consistency, force Neji to halt his approach to block. Hinata, though, doesn’t break pace, and keeps attacking- faster than you’ve ever seen her do before!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYWuDRWqmpY16!32..!64…128……!!The unending torrent of blows keeps pushing Lee back even further- it seems all he’s able to do is keep blocking. She’s punching so quickly her fists leave afterimages; you can’t even tell where she’s directing her attacks. Lee tries to weather her storm- but eventually breaks before it, and is sent flying. As he crashes into the wall of the arena, Hinata falls to one knee, panting heavily.
>>622981>force Neji to halt his approach to block
>>622981>She fucked Lee up so hard Neji tried to help and got hammered as well
>>622981well shit, looks like hinata got gud
>>622981*Sniff* She learned the 8 trigrams in a month, damn. And I'm sure she has much more to show too. I'm so proud of her, she's come so far compared to her canon counterpart, she's really stepped up. We're fucked.
>>623027She's a taijutsu-focused person going up against another taijutsu-focused person.We're a wizard going up against a barbarian. We've got our advantages.
>>622981>128 strikesHinata has been de-scrubbed.(pity she has no chance against Gaara though)
>>623034maybe she lucked into a useful Snek
>>623034She'll do better than almost anyone else in the genin group can, outside of us and Sasuke. Maybe she has something up her sleeve that might make it possible for her to win, don't count her out. Maybe some variant of rotation. (Hell, rotation should realistically be able to burst his bunker should he do that.)
As the smoke clears, you see Hinata gasp- and Lee steps forward, slowly. His skin is bright red, and his veins are bulging in places. Chakra is pouring off of his body- whatever he’s about to do lookings terrifying!Lee, for his part, feels the need to announce his ability:“Hinata-san! I’m sorry, but I must defeat you! Sasuke-kun and I made a wager- and we must see who Guy-sensei’s strongest pupil is- by fighting in the final round! 3rd Gate! Gate of Life- Open!”He rushes towards Hinata, looks ready to meet his advance-Until Lee stops dead in his tracks, his momentum carrying him forward. As he skids to a stop, you see a small white snake slither out from Lee’s jumpsuit, and back towards Hinata.Hinata looks down at Lee with pity, before calling to Genma.“Ah, Genma-san! He isn’t going to be moving for at least the next hour, so could you please end the match?” she shouts.After a few moments, the proctor jumps down from his booth to check on Lee. Sure enough, after a few minutes, Genma calls the match.“Hinata Hyuga is the winner- Rock Lee is incapacitated! Will a medical team please come collect him, as he will be unable to leave the arena under his own power! Thank you!”It’s Danzo who speaks up as the medical team comes to cart Lee away.“A paralysing poison. Seems the young Hyuga girl knows more than just Taijutsu after all- Hiashi must be proud.” He says, humming with approval.Once Lee has been collected, Genma raises Hinata’s hand, to the applause of most of the arena. While the ending was a bit sudden, the Taijutsu on display was surely enough to warm up the crowd.As she exits, Genma again gets on the loudspeaker.“Our next match is Tsuki Norihime VS. Nori Uzumaki! Both of you, please report to the arena floor- you have fifteen minutes!You smile- it’s time to put on a show.
>>623117>tfw Gaara and Fu are on opposite sides of the bracketthe organizers pretty much put together the Worst Possible Bracket
>>623117I dunno, it seems unlikely to me. Gaara looks like her worst possible matchup, he's a counter to her gentle fist. She doesn't have the strength to break through his sand with her tai, and her ninjutsu is only average (2.5) so I doubt that will work either. She also doesn't have quite enough speed to avoid his sand. Assuming we win our match, let's kick the shit out of Gaara if he hurts her unnecessarily.
>>623140Right as I have to go to bed.
>>623140NEXT TIME ON SHINOBI BALL Z!
>>623171Well, I imagine there's probably some influence from the other villages taking part, everyone wants to put on a show that gives them an opportunity to show off their stuff.
>>623140Jesus, I wouldn't want to get anywhere near Hinata if she has a venom that can stop lee going with the gat of life blazing.plz keep goin, I'm so ready for this fight

>>623235Wargle is a slow writer.
>>623225Lets be honest, probably the first thing she did upon seeing the bracket was go summon up a snek networker and go "8 gates, who do i need to get in touch with."
Guys i've got an idea what our ultimate weapon can be when dad helps us make it
>>623277>Checked We'd make a good Gil. We got the money, the disdain for perants, the power... A chain friend and a snake....and we found a flower/fruit thing
As you double check everything, and reseal the contract away, Danzo and Yoru both rise, each resting a hand on your shoulder.“You’ve trained hard. Show the world what you can do, Tsuki.” Danzo says.Father is much less formal.“Kick her butt, my dear. Show them what a Norihime can do!” Yoru says, flashing a smile.Right.You give your teacher and your father each a hug, before descending from the private box. You keep a brisk pace, just to warm yourself up a little before the fight begins.As you turn into the hallway leading into the arena, you can see Nori several paces ahead of you. Instead of calling to her, you let her go on ahead and take per place, opting to wait until the appropriately dramatic moment to make your entrance.Creeping forward, you wait just before the entrance, letting time pass. You can see Nori becoming slightly impatient, eventually peering back into the hallway to try and see you. When she does, she gives you a quizzical look- and it’s at the point you decide to whistle loudly.The orchestra begins to warm up- catching everyone’s attention.Then, as practiced, they begin to play~https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7oMBq1vkCMWith the music as your backdrop, you sashay into the arena, letting the sunlight above reflect across your dress, which you had kept under a coat until this point. As the music reaches it’s zenith, you make an overly grandiose gesture, tossing your coat straight towards Nori, whose expression belies her bewilderment.It lands right on top of her, covering her face.Seeing this, you break into vanglorious fit of laughter, before presenting yourself to the arena, arms outstretched.Nori rips the coat off of her face- you can she see’s plenty steamed. Before she can do anything, though, you beckon to Genma, who looks just as confused as Nori did. After thinking about it for a second, he shrugs, and jumps down into the arena.“Tsuki- I’m not quite sure what this is all about, but-”“Oh, Genma. Be a doll and let me borrow the microphone for just a bit, would you?” you ask playfully.Roll me 1d100 to convince Genma!First three.

“Uhh, sure? Just keep it short, we’ve got a schedule to keep.” he says- though you can tell he’s amused from his expression. He hands you the microphone- and now you have an audience.What do you want to say?1. Run down your opponent in front of the crowd2. Introduce yourself, and talk about how great you are.3.

“Good morning everyone!~” you say to the crowd.“My name is Tsuki Norihime- heir to the glorious Norihime Corporation! It is only appropriate that all of you know my name before we begin, because once the mongrel in front of me submits to my power, all of you will remember the Norihime name! Ohohohohoho!~”Your laughter pours throughout the arena- this is wonderful.You turn to Nori- her face is bright red, and she’s scowling.“Princess, what in the hell do you think you’re-” she growls.“Ah, ah, temper! Nori my dear, you are simply my first step- and after you, I shall rise to my rightful place atop this pitiful tournament! None of you will be able to stop me! Ohohohohohohoho!~”As she takes a step forward, you pop the seal on your container, holding the Ichiraku’s contract.“Now, before I grind you into the dirt, I do have another very important announcement to make!” you say, pulling out the paperwork.You unfurl the contract right in Nori’s face, before continuing.“I am delighted to announce that as of two days ago, The Norihime Corporation has partnered with our local favorite, Ichiraku’s Ramen, to offer you all simply the best food in the Land of Fire! While it’s always been a success locally, we felt it was only right to allow them to soar to even greater heights- and we have no doubt with the backing of the Norihime, they will do just that! Teuchi, please stand, and allow everyone to see your wonderful new uniforms!” you announce, beckoning to the crowd.Teuchi and his daughter stand after a few moments, wearing the designed uniforms- all black, with the white Norihime logo emblazoned upon the upper right side of his apron.Teuchi looks nervous, but his daughter takes to the publicity immediately, waving to the crowd.“Construction is to begin immediately on the new location- and we will take great care to serve all of our lovely patrons! We only ask that you kindly be patient while the renovations are underway~”You turn and sneer at Nori, whose face has gone stark white.You need only fire the killing blow-1. Announce the terms of her forfeit in front of the crowd.2. Surrender the microphone, and just speak to Nori.
>>623583>1. Announce the terms of her forfeit in front of the crowd.
>>623583>2. Surrender the microphone, and just speak to Nori.
>>623583>1It doesn't pay to keep it private really.
>>623583>2. Surrender the microphone, and just speak to Nori.the best business is done behind closed doors
>>623583>2.>>623582Saber is bro tier I don't like her like that. I like the one who pleases old men for money she doesn't please old men for money she is best girl
>>6235831. Announce the terms of her forfeit in front of the crowd.A life time ban (just for her because holy shit is pissing off your nations leader a bad plan financially)
>>623583>1. Announce the terms of her forfeit in front of the crowd.And now the killing blow
>>623583>You turn and sneer at Nori, whose face has gone stark white.She is going to beat the everloving shit out of us.I regret nothing.
>>623583>1. Announce the terms of her forfeit in front of the crowd.Take that, mongrel!
>>623583>2. Surrender the microphone, and just speak to Nori
But we can't do the whole catch phrase 'ramen worth fighting for' if we don't make sure everyone knows the stakes of this match.
>>6235832. Surrender the microphone, and just speak to Nori.If we pick 1, she will have to fight due to pressure of EVERYONE knowing why she forfeit. Including ninja daddy and bro. Tell her in 'private'.
>>623583Uh, I thought Ichiraku was our backup plan and ace in the hole? I thought we weren't going to extort a forfeit using that unless it looked like we were going to lose the fight. Not to be disruptive, but that's what I'm voting for.
Anons theirs no point keeping it between us she's already pissed and if we go easy on her by making it private she's gonna know we don't really mean it. If were going to go all out then don't try and take half measures
>>623583>1. Announce the terms of her forfeit in front of the crowd.>face has gone stark white.Fear or rage.Most likely rage.
>>623608Anon anyone who knows her will know why she forfeited
>>623583>2. Surrender the microphone, and just speak to Nori.Pls no hate Nori, we do this because we love youourselves too much to let you risk yourself in this tourney.
>>623611It's blatantly not going to work anyway anon, we know she's not going to forfeit over something like this. We're just pissing her off for giggles and because angry people make mistakes.
>>623611If we don't start with it on the table it's worthless to try to blabber on about midfight.Additionally, keeping the terms private actively screws us on the exam.
>>623583>1. Announce the terms of her forfeit in front of the crowd.Everyone must know!
>Wargle posts this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SneJOp9yzjI in the next update
>>623611We want it public for a bunch of reasons, to piss off Nori, to convince competitors that we're mostly hot air and for extra marketing
>>623583>1. Announce the terms of her forfeit in front of the crowd.GO FOR THE KILL! NO MERCY IN A FIGHT BETWEEN NINJA!
>>623611Not to mention, announcing it to the crowd, being open about it makes it way more clearly just a move for the tournament.Keeping it private is basically spitting in our friend's face.
>>623623>>623624Okay. Number 1 then.
>>623621>>623632Ah shit you're right, switch me over.
you all know if we challange her like this too the crowd she'll not take the bait. do it personally>2. Surrender the microphone, and just speak to Nori.
BTW, Nori's theme for this specific fight:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0ZjZyL6Wf8
>>623624Pretty sure any ninja qualified enough to judge the exam would be able to hear our private conversation anyway
>>623624psychological warfare, man.>>623632>Not to mention, announcing it to the crowd, being open about it makes it way more clearly just a move for the tournament.Well, maybe obvious in hindsight, but not too obvious for nori to realize right this moment.>>623595Minato is just the leader of the village though. And I'm sure he's smart enough to realize we aren't serious.
>>623636>>623642>>623632Do you guys even talk to people in real life? If we showboat this its going to have a worse effect than if we do it in private. Nori is someone who when pressured lashes out.
>>623608She's going to fight regardless, making it public will just make her more angry and easier to manipulate. You think there's the slightest chance in hell that a relative of Naruto is going to just GIVE UP? NEVER, NOT IN A MILLION YEARS! But we can exploit that, make her push too far and destroy herself trying to win. >>623649The bait is to get really angry at us, and also I love this slogan: >>623606 "ramen worth fighting for" It's great!
>>623659Then if we're lucky, she'll be too blinded by rage to make good choices.
>>6235832. Surrender the microphone, and just speak to Nori
>>623659We actually want that, though. because angry people make stupid mistakes and are easy to lead into a trap.
>>623583>2.don't want to look like a villian in front of all the nice people, (plebs) talk in private
>>623659No but I do watch wrestling sometimes.
>>623659That's the plan, or do you really think talking to her 'privately' will convince her to forfeit?
>>623664You do realize the angrier Nori is the easier it is for the nine-tails to break out? >>623667Its not just going to stay with the match. If we humiliate her in front of everyone she's going to hate Tsuki.>>623674The plan was to bluff so hard that she would tap out. and doing it in private will have a much better chance than doing it out loud.
>>623663Okay the entire premise of purchasing it was that there was a good chance she WOULDN'T fight anyway. Maybe that's your thought but I'm pretty sure that if we frame it right there's a good chance of it working. Of course we already blew the original framing for that which was "make the threat, assume she'll call our bluff, THEN pull out the deed to show, no, we actually our completely serious." but i still think we've got much better odds if the threat is public so she can feel like the reason for her quitting isn't all out there in the open where the whole world knows it.
2 wins. Talking to her in "private".Writing.
>>623683it will only humiliate her if she actually forfeits. Besides, she's a ninja, she has to learn to see obvious bait.
>>623687>2 wins>Relationship status: DestroyedRIP BFF we could have made up with off camera.Apparently we are also a heel in private.
>>623684So basically Wargle fucked us?
>all these people thinking there's a chance Nori will forfeitFace it anons, if that was our plan it wasn't that well thought out.We just impulse bought a restaurant.
>>623697No, everyone who voted 3 in what we were going to speak into the microphone did.
>>623696So you think that peer pressuring someone into a decision is better for relationships do you?>>623700Like he says. It's not like she was going to back down in the first place.
>>623706Well we just lost a friend so I hope those gigantic idiots are happy, However this ruined the quest for me really if people are going to ruin everything by being idiots.
Just shut up and wait for Wargle to post faggotts.
>>623714> Not even waiting to see how it plays out.Well okay.
>>623684fuck, meant to say "threat ISN'T public." Much less incoherent.
>>623714This makes me sad, Anon.
>>623714Jesus anon, calm your shit down. Stop being such a dramatic tool
>>623714>"Nori i'm so sorry i just really really really didn't want to make my big reveal against someone who already freaking knew about it, blame your dad for that bullshit fucking bracket, what an asshole."
>>623714You best be joking, this is going to ruin a relationship not the possibility of maiming?
>>623700The plan was to create a distraction so we're not straight up fighting Nori, because she's a terrifying monster that can and will destroy us unless we turn the entire stadium into a nuclear inferno.>NoriTaijutsu 3.5Strength 3.5Speed 4.0>Tsuki WITH AFTERGLOWTaijutsu 2.5Strength 2.5Speed 4.0 pic related is basically our only plan for dealing with her
>>623734Okay in fairness she was EXPECTING the possibiltiy of maiming going into this whole thing. Friend's jumping on psychological weak points, not so much.
>>623714I honestly doubt this will ruin our friendship. Sure, she'll be mad at us for a while, but I can see Nori and Tsuki laughing about it later.
>>623714This is the grand total of our plan and what it amounts to:>"Hey Nori I bought Ichiraku. If you forfeit I won't ban you for the rest of your life./ I won't destroy it">"Grrr I'll fight you any way Tsuki because never backing down is my nindo etc"after the match."Ah hey Tsuki, you where just joking about me not being able to eat at Ichiraku's right?""Of course it was just a bluff.""Oh thank the moon bunny I thought you actually bought it for a second their HA HA.">"No I did actually buy it.">"........Hey Tsuki did I ever tell you how you're my bestest buddy">"You're still paying full price"
My friends, it has often been said that I like shadowruns.My friends, I like shadowruns...No, friends, I love shadowruns!I love social anxiety.I love paranoia.I love flawed logic.I love assumptions, leaps in logic, I love baseless fears, and retractions.speculating across boards, in qtg, in akun, in thread, in irl, through twitter, on discord, I love every act of shadowrunning that can occur upon this earth.I love blasting the opposing views to smithereens with green text that thunders across the thread.My heart leaps with joy whenever a namefag is tossed high into the air and cut to pieces by well placed reaction pics. And there is nothing like an anon using his overactive imagination to destroy another anon's hopes. And the feeling that comes when a QM runs screaming from his blazing quest only to be mowed down by heavy lies and misinformation, is such an exquisite feeling. Like when ranks of qtg brandish their shitposts rushing into the enemy's thread. It moves me deep within my heart to watch a fresh newfag trolling over and over with the bloated chest of a long-dead quest.The sight of former drawfags being strung up from a scathing anon critique is an irresistible pleasure. And there is nothing more arousing, than the sounds made by former players dropping like flies, screaming in agony as they're mowed down by ear piercing waifuwars!
>>623755Pretty much this.
>>623755We're not heartless.One free bowl a week.
>>623714Wait until you see what happens instead of making your own assumptions you twit.
>>623759Well that's a great parody you've got there, are you sure that you've put it in the right thread?
>>623772pretty sure>I hate you 5ever because ramen drama postingseems silly enough
>>623772Considering some of the whiners yeah.
>>623780Oh good, the shadowruns bit was what made me wonder.>>623779> People like what I don't like> A gentle angel descends from on high to deliver a personal message from the divinity of your choice> 'Okay'
“I won’t take up any more for your time- just remember, Ichiraku’s Ramen- ramen worth fighting for!”You give a bow, then hand the microphone over to Genma, who looks rather flabbergasted. You give him a quick wink before turning to face Nori again.Some of her color has returned, though the confusion is still somewhat evident. Once Genma returns to his booth, you seal the contract back into it’s container. Nori opens her mouth, but you quickly cut her off.“There’s one last thing, Nori. If you don’t surrender this match, and let me walk out of here unscathed- you’ll be banned from Ichiraku’s.” You say smugly.“Forever.”Her eyebrow twitches slightly- though her face hasn’t moved.“Fox got your tongue, Nori?” you tease.
>>623793Good pic drawfag, good pic.>It's on.jpg
You may have outdone yourself here- the girl’s mouth twists into a snarl, and tears gently stream down her face.“I cannot believe you. I cannot believe you would sink this low over this stupid fight. I’ve seen that face before- you’re putting on that act you did when we fought those Samurai. You really think I’m going to give up over a dumb restaurant, huh?”“You know, I was gonna go easy on you. This whole thing is a pain, and I would’ve rather have seen you or Hinata win it all. That woulda been nice, you know?” She says, her scowl easing into a grimace.“But, you’ve decided to go all out- and try to make me look stupid in front of everyone. So, now, I gotta return the favor, princess.”She dries her eyes on her sleeve, then gives you the biggest smile you’ve ever seen on her face.“I’m going to kick your ass, Tsuki Norihime.”In that very moment, you feel like you’ve made a terrible mistake.[HARD MODE UNLOCKED]
>>623793Suitably smug.>“Fox got your tongue, Nori?” you tease.Kek. Now time to get kicked in the face.
>>623800SHE BOUT TO FUCKIN DO IT
>>623800>I am fine with this outcome
>>623800>not popping the foxmildly disappoint
>>623800oh boy, time for fun.
>>623800>[HARD MODE UNLOCKED]
>>623800Well I'm not really surprised.Time for a good beating, but on who's ass shall it fall?
>>623800Well we fucked up.Instead of a ban we should have promised her free meals.
>>623800I don't. How fucking dare she think she can go easy on us. Going fucking all out on this idiot.
>>623800>Pft, like I would do anything beside go all out against somebody I respect.>FIGHT
>>623800HERE WEEEE GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>623800>But, you’ve decided to go all outExcuse me, This was entirely an attempt to avoid having to go all out
>>623800>[HARD MODE UNLOCKED]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1k1eFXa6xc
>>623810>>623813I have to concur, the fact that she would have just goofed around and let us win seriously pisses me off. So this is just fine. Even if we lose, although that is not the outcome i hope for.
