The old man, expressive as the stony bark of Konoha's ancient trees, inspects the young monk stumbling through the bushes into the clearing. The water nation produced only criminals -as was their nature- but this boy, tattoos of strange symbols carved along his body, was not part of Kirigakure's filth. The young lady, Rin, had provided him with the information he requested immediately. She -oddly enough- was of Konoha blood...as was the enthusiastic young entrepreneur, Yoru, who had stumbled into the two of you moments prior. It wasn't long ago that you'd hired the same man to gather intel in the craigs of Iwagakure. Months may be a lifetime to some, but true progress is found slowly growing beneath the soil of daily routine; You remember Yoru quite well, to his genuine surprise.

The stoic man glances to the two others leaning against the tree that the Uchiha had found in the Heart of the Forest, a young lady his ROOTS had identified as Asa, Blue Hawk of Kumogakure, and a surprising face he had not seen in nearly a decade...

Curious...
In a period of a few mere months, two patrons of the hidden village had joined the ranks of these...undesirables.

He hears a snake hiss behind him. Orochimaru has even retreated into the woods for now, it would seem. A young chunin, a wandering merchant, a vagrant nin, and a former mercenary captain following on the heels of a teenage cleric emblazoned in what looks to be sealing patterns.
Very Curious....

The information the foolish boy unveiled alone warrants action, but...
There is something bigger at play here, he thinks as he walks to the young man silently writhing in the edge of the clearing. In due time, this threat to the Leaf's safety will be dealt with...but for now, the roots shall absorb what they can.
For his ROOTS are everywhere.

"Ah, you must be...Amon-kun? Your friends have told me much about you."

>Your name is Amon Shuu, a humble monk of the Water Temple.
>You have no family to speak of, another one of the many casualties of the 2nd Shinobi World War. Your luck pulled through when a wandering monk, Myatsuu, snatched you from the debris of a border skirmish between Konohagakure and Kirigakure with your village having been reduced to rubble in the midst of battle. You were 4 years old. The monk, Myatsuu, brought you back to the Water Temple in the marshy coastlines of the Land of Water.

>Nearly 14 years later, the Temple- your home- had fallen to attackers from the Village Hidden in the Mist after a young girl, Rin. Leaving to honor your duties, you travel across lands to deliver the merchant, Yoru, safely to his destination.
>Last thread you opened something you shouldn't have...and were hunted by an unknown organization. You seemingly drove off a man who called himself Orochimaru and reunited with your friends...gathered around a clearing with a strange, old man.

You released the Speak-No-Evil seal on your bare chest. With a nealy audible *pop* from your ears, you'd felt the air and sound rush back into the space around you like a vaccuum. The old man, black-haired head bandaged around one side of his face, slowly rose from his comfortable seat on the mossy log with Rin and approached you. A short, polite smile was on his face...

You feel surprisingly comfortable around him. Quite the time and place for an old man to be taking a morning walk. You adjust your own clothing as you jump to meet the man, waiting for you patiently. Out of the corner of your eye you see Tai nursing a crumpled looking Asa heaped against a tree...there is another man there helping him. His black, empty eyes assess the girl's wounds as he addresses Tai in treating her. He's wearing a Konoha headband. It seems the ninja from that village are particularly helpful...

"Amon-kun...I do not believe we have had the pleasure. I am called Danzo. This young man is my aide in my admittedly growing year. He prefers to be called Shi."

"Might I ask what brings you to join us in our small, morning respite? Your friend seems to be in alarming condition."

So you tell the wised old man everything: how you accidentally decrypted a scroll given to you by the merchant Hoki, how you were pursued through the Forest by -what you think they called themselves- the ROOTS, how you attacked and drove off the snake and the monstrous ninja, Orochimaru.

Danzo appears genuinely surprised by this troubling tale of events, accompanying your story with clipped expressions of concern, raised eyebrows, and reserved gasps of shock. He asks you about the flash of red eyes, to which you respond with honest ignorance. When you mention the pale-skinned ninja, he frowns.

"Orochimaru? That is a familiar name to all of us in the Leaf, no matter our age. The Sannin attacked you? But why would he do that?"

Again, you answer in honest ignorance. Danzo shakes his head, his stoic expression riddled with concern. "Whatever his reasons, Orochimaru attacking traveling strangers is most distressing. Though, he has been rumored to have been acting strange in recent times...I hope this does not sully Konoha in your eyes."

He walks with you -hands clasped behind him- back to the log he had been sitting on prior, his dignified stride out of place in these backwater woods. While diplomatic...you realize the man is notably stoic. You can't read anything just looking at him, eye calmly closed. You're used to being around Rin, Yoru, Asa, and Tai, so perhaps his inscrutable expression is just exaggerated in comparison?

He motions for you to sit as he hefts a small kettle placed nearby and pours a small cup of tea, offering it to you.

"How did Rin, Yoru, Tai, and Asa end up here, Mr. Danzo?"

He lets out a short chuckle on hearing you call him by the name. "Danzo is just fine, Amon-kun. Are those their names? Truly, I was as surprised to see them as you are now. Lady Rin stumbled upon us not too long ago, followed soon after by a fond face I never expected to see out in these parts."

Rin sits on the log next to you, visibly beaming from the title as she swings her legs in the air. Yoru, standing by the oaken old man, scratching his head in embarrassment. "Please Mr. Shimura, you're too kind. I wouldn't have imagined running into a honored member of the Konoha Council out here...let alone being taken in by him! Also, about the uh, task yo-"

Danzo cuts off the man with a small smile. "The pleasure was mine, Yoru-kun. Please, let us save business for later, when it is more appropriate."

"Now, for your other companions...I confess they alarmed me immensely when they were lead here by my attendant. The severity of their injuries is...unfortunate."

"Should I be too bold to ask...what was it that you read in those scrolls, Amon-kun? I promise the secret will be kept for us alone."

You tell everything to Danzo.

The code you deciphered...
The reports you read...
The ROOTS...
Something mentioned about the "eyes of fate", as well...

>>801141
Yet, on mentioning this last detail you see Danzo's eye crack open only slightly, an expression revealed in his increasingly hardening face for only a brief millisecond.
>spoilered pic

Though as quickly as it flashed, it was gone; Danzo's face is as patient and immersed as before. You write it off as your imagination...though you do feel a little uncomfortable, for some reason.

"A secret organization in the Hidden Leaf? What curious news. We will be sure to...take care...of this once we return to Konoha. As for these 'eyes of fate', I cannot say I have heard of them before. You would do well to forget about it, Amon. After all, you surely have more to deal with than the ramblings of some cult."

As he speaks to you, his face concerned like a disapproving father...you start to understand what was bothering you earlier. Despite the small expressions...no, perhaps because of them...you feel some sort of discomfort. They're just too...expected. Danzo seems to be formality and politeness, giving the appropriate responses to everything you have mentioned thus far. It's too...prepared, inhuman almost. Perhaps he's simply that calm? You suppose the trait would make for an excellent advisor or councilman.

But, still...it's off.

"Amon-kun, I must admit my burdening you with my curiosity once more...but what exactly are these markings that cover your body?"

"It's just a project of mine," you respond coolly to the man, distrust gradually growing. "Danzo...what are you doing out here, so far from the Hidden Leaf?"

He doesn't answer the question immediately...just staring at you, inscrutable. He finally gives a quiet, knowing smile. "It is most unlucky to ask travelers where they are going, Amon-kun. Whatever one seeks on the roads is a secret for him alone, lest...misfortune...befall him-

...Though, with Shi by my side I worry not. We are simply making a trip to the borders, to note the state of our great nation in these times of war. To travel for the sake of traveling is an intimate pleasure in itself, one I'm sure you understand quite well."

You eye the man, suspicious of his honeyed words. But, before you can say anything else, he rises from his seat and motions to the empty-eyed attendant who just finishing treating Asa. "Quite a strange sight, seeing the Uzumaki's Adamantine Binding Seal tattooed on a foreigner..." Danzo muses aloud.

This strikes you immediately. "I don't recall telling you anything about a seal, Danzo."

He looks at you briefly, a surprised expression reflecting on his face. "What use as a council would I be to Konoha'scompetant leadership if I did not know the Village's own abilities? Take care, Amon-kun...the roads can be quite dangerous in these dark times."

Danzo strides solemnly to the main road with Shi, before pausing and turning back slightly to address Rin. "It is a great pleasure to see a comrade of the Hidden Leaf alive and well, Lady Nohara. It would seem the rumors of your death at the hands of Kirigakure were...curiously exaggerated. Your teammates will be ecstatic at your return, surely... Good day to you."

And with that, Danzo disappears into the leaves of the forest.

Danzo walks along the road, Uchiha lapdog silently patrolling by his side. While quiet, the old shinobi is well aware the ninja has already perceived everything in the Forest within at least a mile radius. "He's back," the Uchiha, eyes red, announces to his leader.
A small white snake slithers onto the dirt path and up the the bandaged man. "You were careless, Orochimaru. Thankfully, your failure was in name only this time. It would seem we may have stumbled onto something...interesting."

The snake hisses, agitated. Danzo regards it coldly. "Failures are not tolerated, even for a Sannin. Their lives will not be yours to take as of now. Your orders are to return to the village...though you may freely observe them as you see fit."

As the serpent slithers angrily back into the bushes, Danzo frowns. Despite not killing any of the group...the snake smelled thickly of blood. Orochimaru...what is he up to?

The feeling of the early morning sunlight on your face has never been more welcome than now. Exiting the clustered trees of the forest with your companions by your side, you nearly kiss the ground in appreciation. Well, you honestly would if you weren't carrying the unconscious, ragged Asa in your arms. She's...cute when she sleeps, actually. She looks like different person, more vulnerable, than the usual confident, decisive, dominant Asa you've dealt with so far.

...you...you're definitely getting tired, that's all.

You feel a strong heat next to your right arm and turn to see a red-faced Rin giving you a stink eye from the side. "Enjoying yourself, Amon? You sure look like it."

...you become acutely aware of where your hands are holding the unconscious girl. You opt to just shake your head at Rin, instead of revealing your steady loss of composure, much to her frustration. Tai shuffles, what injured, at the rear, while a relieved Yoru leads happily from the front into the woodland fields of Konoha. At least someone is excited.

As you continue onwards...your knees begin to wobble, then nearly collapse. You...you're more tired than you thought. You realize the "overheated" feeling you had after using and locking the Seal of Babylon hasn't gone away and most of your body feels exhausted, stretched thin.

"Let's stop for a while, everyone. I don't know how much longer I can push forward with everything that we just went through."

Your companions, even a notably bummed Yoru, agree wholeheartedly. While it may be only around 9am in the morning...your camp is fully set in the long grasses alongside of the dusty road. The sun hugs the campsite and it's tired members as they wind down from the series of exciting, and horrifying, events. You recline in the long grass, your exhausted mind buzzing with too many questions to collapse from the lack of sleep just yet.

You...

You manage to pull yourself up out of the comfortable, grassy bed and limp over to the similarly recovering Asa. Her chocolate skin is bruised and cut in places and her cerulean hair is frizzed. Usagi is snuggled under her arm, apparently summoned recently by the kunoichi. She sees you approach with an expression of legitimate surprise plastered on her face before it changes to one of brief embarrassment. She tries to put forth a -transparently forced- confident face as you approach.

"Well, Mighty Monk...you're coming to see me now? You should go talk to Rin...after all, just look at me..."
She attempts a self-depreicating joke as she motions to her own face, lightly swollen and slightly sad.

You sit next to the long-faced girl. "I'm not here for any sort of entertainment, Asa. I'm here because I care about how you're doing. You seemed pretty off back in the forest, want to talk about it?"

Asa blinks. "You...you care about...me?"

You clasp your hands around one of hers lightly, squeezing it for emphasis. "You never had to be of any 'use' to me, Asa. You've taken care of us...of me. Let me do the same for you. Tell me what's wrong."

Asa blinks again, a slow blush spreading across the brown cheeks on her dazzled face. She begins to giggle a little, covering her mouth as she does so. With her free hand she playfully pushes you away a little bit, leering at you from the side. "You really are too nice for your own good, wonderboy."

She curls up slightly, hugging her knees as her small smile curls into a frown. Her depressed eyes tell another story entirely though as she talks. "I...lost my nerve a little bit, I suppose. I just haven't felt so useless, so weak since..."

She shakes her head, reluctant to continue. "Look, I'm just not the kind of girl to be a damsel in distress. I like to -I need to- take action. I just couldn't back there, when I needed to most...I-I guess that means I failed."

You think this could be a sensitive topic to her....

I say all the time I need a twitter. But I hate twitter with a burning passion that almost rivals my love for Chomei HA I STILL GOT IT so I don't know if I want to. I don't even know how much it would help compared to just refreshing page 1 constantly. I'd probably check about as often.

I'll try it out, hopefully it won't be too bad.

If you get a follow by someone named Buttfungus or Dickcheese or something similar you'll know who it is.

Or maybe it'll be something like Beast Waifu Shitposter or something.

I am to please Red. It all I ever do.

Honestly I think they're both not as bad as my first Google+ account Poopy Butt. It's too bad I forgot the password to that one...

Also looks like nobody's taken ButtFungus yet.

>>802280
I dunno, I'll have to see them more to answer. Probably Hilda though, I've always had a thing for witty women. Which is probably why I like Asa the best (since she's way wittier than Rin) and wanted Lucina to win in Princess Guard.

Asa probably needs time to think, you can tell she has a lot going through her head now. But, you begin to find you can't bear the sight of the self-critical sadness in her glassy look...

"...If it makes you feel any better, that snake won't be eating anyone ever again. I may have gone overboard."

This seems to break her out of her own head at least a little bit and she laughs sarcastically.
"Oh, just for me? That's so sweet, you shouldn't have."

You shake your head, letting go of Asa's hand as you struggle to stand up, body protesting from the effort. "You've been nothing but great, Asa. If you want to talk about it, I'll be around."

A soft hand pulls your own back as you turn to leave. "Amon..."
>>802211
Asa, even battered as she is, gives you a quick wink. "...don't wander too far, now."

She's still trying to push your buttons...and based on the blood rushing to your face, it's working. As you hustle away, you hear her chuckle softly at your parting expression.

You...

You can just call me "that guy that shitpost about tailed beast wafus." It's slightly more respectable. I might just make another twitter account with something along those lines as the name.

The odor of burnt tobacco fills the air as you approach your brother monk, coughing from the lingering ash as you do so. Since when does Tai smoke? You haven't seen anyone smoke before, really, save for a few guests passing by through the Water Temple...but Tai?

You sit down next to the monk in the grass, hiding your nausea from the stench. Tai glances at you, casually exhaling a thick stream of smoke from his nose, and puts the hand-rolled cigarette on a flat rock next to him. While somewhat relaxed, he looks haunted now that you notice it.

"Since when do you smoke? Myatsuu certainly wouldn't approve."

Tai snaps at you "How about you get eaten by a overgrown reptile?"
He shudders, shaking his head as he leans back on his hands. "Sorry, you didn't deserve that, Amon. I haven't smoked in a long time...but I guess the stress of life on the road again makes old habits come back hard."

Life on the road again? You realize you don't know as much about Tai as you thought. After all, he'd been at the Temple for as long as you had...at least a decade. At nearly 26, you'd assumed Tai had simply been there all his life too...maybe not? Tai idly scratches his neck, a thin scruff of facial hair beginning to grow across his face.

>Tell Tai about what happened with the Hear-No-Evil seal...who is Maria?

Thanks for running Red. Also never found that fucking bell so I guess I am old now, but I can turn on mobile notifications from windows, so I suppose it worked out in the end. If I've set everything up correctly, twitter doesn't seem to like to explain much of anything.
>>
>>802427
Oh, he's carrying the tobacco on him? I figured he bummed it off Danzo somehow. Carrying around something you're addicted to and want to break away from is a great way to not break your addiction. I speak from experience, I used to have a very bad problem with pictures of Chomei.

Oh god I found the perfect picture for ButtFungus. It's a crop I made from a newspaper about a guy breaking into the house of "the most prolific gay sex offender." I think it'll fit very well. I'm laughing at this way too much.

You pick up the small figurine, but grow hot in the face as you realize its smooth, wooden curves are carved into the still-life form of a nude woman.

"Since when did you become an artistan, Tai?"

You look to Tai, your expression a bit more judgemental than just questioning, but he nonchalantly takes another long drag of his cigarette instead of answering. You turn the figure over in your hands, beginning to admire the innumerable intricacies painstakingly cut over time innumerable...

The woman is naked, yet the expression on her face is one of the utmost comfort and grace. Her body is twisted, as if caught in the middle of a moonlight dance. She cradles an instrument, a harp, within one of her slender arms like a child, clutching it against her bare chest...

"It was something I picked up on the fringes of the Land of Tea, a backwater country far to the south. There was an older coot who lived there back then, he took me in for a while. Treated me like the son he never had. It must have been...more than a decade ago, wasn't it? Time sure does fly."

His eyes narrow, as if he is trying to see something far into the distance. He takes another drag of the shortening filament between his fingers. There's movement from the corner of your eye and Yoru sits down with the two of you, nose wrinkled. "Smoking, Tai? Never took you for the type."

"Everyone has a vice. You too?"

"I've been around a few who have, but I never tried myself. I always enjoyed the smell, though. It kind of reminds me of my dad."

Tai smirks ruefully as takes out a thin sheet of paper and a small pouch of what looks to be brown, shredded leaves from his gi. You watch as he carefully layers the tobacco, packing it gently, then rolls the sheet into a small cylinder with just his fingertips -a delicate touch almost uncharacteristic for such a rough man. He hands the finished product to the impressed Yoru and lights a match for him.

"Consider this one on the house- to the Sins of our Fathers, Yoru."

As they both inhale deeply, you realize just how much this means you don't know about Tai. He spent nearly the first half of his life outside the Water Temple...

"Tai...you weren't always at the Water Temple, were you? You...weren't always a monk."

He nods his head, solemnly. "To take the monastic vows is a commitment few take in their lives, Amon. Many of the monks at the Water Temple had lives from before: some bakers, some laborers, some...some were just lost. The kids who grew up surrounded by these teachings, people like you, Amon, were the real monks. The rest of us just hoped to become better people."

Tai says this matter-of-factly as you listen, curious as to what this man's life was before.

"Myself- I led a small company of mercenaries as their captain."

Yoru chimes in, eyebrow raised. "A captain? But..you couldn't have been more than-"

"...15. I was about 15 when I first lead my men into battle. I was wild and headstrong, proving myself early on. My father had been a wandering sellsword himself, so I guess you could say the life was just in my blood. A world like that might be a hell to some...but to sinner like me, it was perfect.

I didn't know any better. Until...she came into my life."

Tai finishes his cigarette, ashing the embers against the stone next to him. Yoru thanks him for the story and goes back to his work. Tai turns, smirking at you. "That's all I can say for now. You should get some rest, Amon. I can't be carrying you all the time, after all."

You chuckle back to him. Getting up, you....

Taking your leave of Tai, you walk across the hodgepodge camp, past the road, and into the lightly shaded woods where you had seen Rin picking wildflowers earlier. Sure enough, she sits near a few puddles in the ground, surrounded by the meadow of flowers. She doesn't notice you approach until you've already sat down next to her, startled a bit by the sudden entrance. Rin smiles wide when she realizes it's you.

"What have you been up to, Rin?"

She picks the flowers idly, arranging them into small boquets around her. "...did you think Hoki was a bad person, Amon?" She asks you abruptly.

Hunh? You think for a minute, mind jumbled from the odd question, before answering the girl.

"..No, I'm not sure if he was. He was probably lost and had been living that way for so long, he didn't know any other kind of life. I...guess I didn't know him well enough to tell, everything changed so quickly."

Rin nods. "He never seemed bad...he treated that boy so well. But, in the end he quickly changed into something else entirely. I...I've been thinking. I think we've all changed a bit, too. I've found myself starting to wonder if I'm even the same person I was a few months ago and when I could have changed..."

She looks to you, holding your gaze for the longest time so far. "...I think it was when I met you, Amon. I feel more...secure, decisive even. I wonder if my team would still recognize me."

There that is again, her teammates...Rin hasn't mentioned them much, but they seem important to her.

"You never did tell me about your teammates, Rin."

"...I miss them more than I realized. I guess I just haven't been able to stop and think about back home with everything going on around me recently."

Rin shuffles her feet in the flowers, picking three white lilies out of them. She holds up the first, "There was our sensei, Minato. He was a goofy guy, the kind you would expect to be a bit of a pushover to be honest. But...Minato, The Yellow Flash as he's known now, might be the most powerful shinobi alive- it's almost scary when you think about it. He always looked out for our best interest, though..."

She looks at he second flower fondly. "Then there was...Kakashi. He was always so determined, so focused. I...I always found myself wanting him to succeed, wanting to stand by his side. He was always a loner though, until..."

She gazes mournfully at the last flower. "...Obito died. Things just weren't the same after it happened. He was always so energetic, ready to take on any challenge. He was the bravest of us. I just wish we had another chance with him, to tell him how much he had mattered to us...to me..."

As Rin begins to tear up, you put your arms around her. You stand up together in a hug as she cries into your chest.

"We all change, Rin. But bonds like those never will. They'll still be proud to see who you've become, Demon or not. You'll always have them...and me. After all, a promise is a promise."

She looks up to you, cheeks still wet with tears. "Amon..."

As you stand embraced in the field of wildflowers, Rin begins to blush again. But, this time she calmly shuts her eyes and leans into you. She smells of flowers and the sea breeze, strangely, but you can't think about it more as she slowly closes the distance between your faces. Your heart begins to pound in your chest. Rin...is Rin really...does she want...

But even in your dream-like daze, you can spot the shallow puddles nearby shudder. They gradually rise behind Rin, silently forming into the upper torso of a spindly man...

...holding a needle-like blade in his hand.
~I'll be taking back now what you stole from us, little fly~

Oh God, how could you not have realized it sooner.
It hadn't rained in days.

"RIN, LOOK OUT!!" You scream, throwing aside the girl to safety as the sword plunges through the air towards her back. She lands, confused until she sees the assassin. Her face pales like a sheet.

~Kirigakure sends its regards~
The masked swordsman cooes in your ear.

>>803268

You try to raise your arm to atack him, but...they're so heavy. W-when did it get so...cold all of the sudden? You feel something crawl down your chest and you look down with your shuddering head. The swordsman's hand is nearly pressed against your chest entirely...a large, red spot expanding across your once clean robes.

Kushimaru rips the length of the blade out of Amon's body, before stabbing it once again deep between his ribs.

~That...was for my brothers you killed at Kikyo, vile bug~
~Return to the dirt where you belong, with your maggots and dear teacher~

You hear...someone screaming nearby? There are shouts as your glassy eyes watch the swordsman move away for some reason. There is a shine in the corner of your vision, as something that looks like it could be splinters fly through the air around you. Your legs give out beneath you as you collapse onto your chest in the white flowers below, striped red with your blood.

They...remind you of the orchids in the courtyard, back at the Temple. Myatsuu...always did like them. Now you see why.
Do not fear death as I have, Amon

Rin's blurry face appears in the spots between your vision. She's saying something- crying? You smile weakly. At least she's safe...
Wherever you go, the souls of those closest to you will always follow

As your vision is consumed by the enveloping darkness, the last thing you hear is the sound of waves crashing along the beach.
I'm...coming home, Myatsuu. I did my best...

The echo of crashing waves meets his ears. He opens his eyes to crystal waters lapping against his face, golden sands below him, and a sky of purest white above. He stands, his spirit stronger than his weary body ever could be. Past the far horizon shines a crimson sun. He is...comforted.

Death was far less painful than he had feared.

Along the tidal shores of this etherial land stands a dock. A vaguely humanoid cloud of light rests on the wooden planks, tending to what looks to be small boat. While behind you, a twisting path leads to a plateau so tall it scrapes the skies above. At its peak four figures stand tall, a single gold speck planted among them. Far down along the beach you see a familiar face, robes billowing in the salty ocean breeze.

In this world immaterial, you have all the time you could need.

You tread along the jeweled sands, though your feet leave no prints. Small, shimmering specks escape the ground below as you do, dancing around the air like fireflies. He turns to you as you approach, the same jovial smile greeting you as it always did in those times long past.

Even in this halcyion plane, far from the world before...
I would be with you, always

You...you have so many questions. So much to ask. So much to tell him...

>What is this place?
>Are you truly...dead?
>What happened at the Water Temple that day?
>You're sorry...you never got to say goodbye. You never truly thanked him.
>Tell him of your journey, the friends you have met...all because of his sacrifice.
>Ask him of the ferry and the cliffs
>Ask your teacher for help in these troubled times...Bishamon, the Beads, everything...you're truly lost.
>Write in

You're sorry.
You're so sorry.
You never got to say goodbye to him. You never truly thanked him for everything he did, for what he sacrificed...in vain.

He looks on you with the loving pity of a father reflected in his eyes.

Death was never a true end, Amon.
For I knew that as long as you lived on...
...What little good I managed to bring about in my lifetime would never truly die.
Andyou are greatest good to have happened to this old man.
Thank you for giving me the most fulfilling years of my life

Your eyes get blurry for a bit, but you manage to blink it away. You ask him of the ferry, where does it go?
...why hasn't he taken it?

The ferry? So that's what it is
I'd suppose then that this 'ferry' would take you where any ferry would...
...across
As for myself, I'm waiting for a certain someone.
When that day should come, this teacher will board that boat alongside his student...but as an equal
But...there are those waiting for you in the world of the living, my pupil.
Whether you cross or not is up to you, though

You look back to the ferryman, considering this. Looking up to the cliffs above, you see the four guardians stand tall amid the winds above. You ask the teacher who those four are.

Those four far above us watch over this peaceful land in-between...waiting for their prodigal brother to return home to them
...even in death, their hearts ache for him. Help them rest in peace, if you would be so kind.
Bring an end to the suffering of their dearest brother.

You...
>Speak to your teacher one last time (what?)

I feel like nobody else realizes the tattoo was more of a quick fix than a permanent solution to the bishamon problem
>>
>>805289
It's one of the reasons we're going to Konoha isn't it? To see the 9 Tails and get inside Rin inspect the seal and tailed beast in Rin under relatively safe conditions. Or was it just to get Rin home?
>>
>>805301
I could be wrong but I was thinking we had bishamon as well as portions of all the tailed beasts in us. So we need to figure out how to deal with bishamon as well as all of the tailed beasts.
>>
>>805314
We have fragments of the Tailed Beasts, it's why Bishamon is still dangerous, because he could break out using the fragments. Once we get a sample of each of the tailed beasts and incorporate checks on their fragments to the seal he'll become less dangerous. But still dangerous.
>>
>>805325
Even if we manage to get all the tailed beast chakra into our seal, it would only last as long as we live.

So we either try to gain immortality to keep Bishie locked up forever, or we take a page from the Kon universe Naruto and chat with him every day, hopefully bringing him closer to redemption and ending his grudge with the universe.

You give your teacher one last, heartfelt goodbye...oddly literal considering this may, in fact, be your soul speaking. You'll see him again one day, you swear it. He smiles back at you for the final time.

Maybe...but it will be a long time before that day comes.
Just remember...

He places his hand over your heart.

...I will always be here.
Goodbye...Amon.

And he vanishes, the shimmering fireflies from before spiraling in the air where he once had been standing along the shoreline.

You scale the winding path, your limbs feeling no pain or exhaustion. The pearl skies and ruby clouds above seem top grow ever closer as you climb. The heavens above stretch before you as you reach the land in the sky. The four figures turn to you, faces wrinkled and stretched.
Tears run down their faces endlessly, despite their straight faces.
Their spirits are tormented to this day from the betrayal of their brother...the loss of his love.

Kannon, his eyes deep with untold sorrow and regrets.
Daruma, the sage's strong, sealed body can only support so much of the world's weight within him.
Amida, last possessor of the Wen Qu and last to stand against his fallen brother.
Nasam, betrayed by one of his own in his darkest hour.

To some, they had became legends.
To them, they had failed in their greatest mission.

>Who do you wish to speak?
>What do you wish to ask?

Amon...I told you to stay close. You told me you cared...
...why? Why did you have to do this? Why did you have to leave me all alone again? I...I can't...
>>
>>805493
Ask the brother what happened to Bishamon to make him go crazy homicidal
>>
>>805493
>Who do you wish to speak?
I'm guessing this is "speak to?"
Oh and while I'm on the topic of typos...
>Andyou are greatest good


Anyway, just apologize for not being able to give Bishamon his rest just yet.

>>805511
He watched Kannon get killed iirc. Either that or another guy with a K name. I'm assuming this was by a tailed beast.
>>
>>805511
Oh and ask what his connection t the tailed beasts is. And ask if we can go be alive some more I guess.

You ask them of Bishamon, of his fall. It is Kannon who answers.

His fall...was a quiet thing
A whimper, rather than a cry
It was my own foolish errors that lead to my dear brother's demise
It was my own body, broken by the sins of my own past, that would haunt his nightmares
His soul, once just, kind, and hopeful, would blacken from despair
After the loss of that which he held closest...he would see the world void of purpose or joy
He lost all faith in this torment, coming to witness the worst of life around him
Indeed...the Bishamon we loved and cherished would be consumed by the demon you know now.

The sage, Amida, holding a ghostly, golden staff and Nasam, fingers decorated with rings, preach to you.
He would become the threat to the world as you know him. The same threat I sealed away only temporarily, as even I was too weak to truly kill my former friend.
You have inherited this legacy. For that...we are truly sorry.
In this darkest hour, you alone must shine brighter than all.

Daruma, leader of the Gates, finishes.
You shall become a sun yourself, a source of hope for all who witness your actions.
Rather than a curse, these unwanted powers will become a blessing;
Rather than consume, life will grow and flourish around you.
To this end, we offer our gifts.

Which will you accept? (Pick one)
>The gift of Daruma, his secrets in inner strength and sealing
>The gift of Amida, greater knowledge of barriers and mastery of the Wen Qu
>The gift of Kannon, understanding of the elements at their most fundamental nature
>The gift of Nasam, unparalleled control of chakra

PLEASE! SOMEBODY, ANYBODY! WE NEED A DOCTOR!

>>805796
I mean, knowing our friends love us isn't gonna save us the next time Orochimaru tries to violate us. It'll help, having a reason to fight, but we've always had that. We shouldn't refuse a gift because of that.

OK, you got me, I'm just in it for the possibility of waifuing Chomei, and we need gains to do that. But I still don't think we should refuse gains because we have friends we love. Accepting gains won't change how we feel about them. Unless you're being cheeky again and this is all an illusion and we're actually selling our soul to Bishamon.

I wouldn't even be mad. I am a little salty about the gains though... It just doesn't make sense to make that decision to me imo. Maybe I'm just a psychopath, who knows? I literally have one friend. Not even lying, I have one but probably not anymore because I was trying to argue that even though Trump and Hillary are human waste, Hillary was worse and I think she got really offended by that...

You accept the gift of Daruma, unofficial leader of the five gates. You remember the stories of his exploits and the unassuming figure that belied a strength few could ever imagine. The spirit nods, solemnly treading forward and into you.
My power shall be yours to inherit:
A strength to hold evil at bay;
The power to protect that which is righteous.
You shall be the guiding arm of the Ninshu.
Your indominable will, a beacon in the dark.

[Acquired: Blessing of Daruma]
[Permanent +1 increase to Strength and Stamina]
[These stats will now increase faster with training]
[You are also now able to piece together Daruma's lost masterwork, The Seal of Blooming Lotus]

A boiling energy flows through you like a righteous fire. Yet as it passes, a strange, soothing flow spreads across your chest like water. The spirits nod, disappearing like haze into the wind. Far in the distant, straight beyond the cliff, the crimson sun hangs waiting on the horizon.
Shine like a sun, Amon
Yours is the power to brighten the world

You stride confidently towards the edge of the cliff, your mission is clear. Your destiny is decided.
C'mon, c'mon, wake up....

You approach the bright, red sun. Your vision darkens the closer you get, eyes burned from the radiant star. Your sight goes black as you reach out....

...and grasp it in your hand. It's warm and surpisingly soft in your hands. It's comforting in a way, as you cradle it in your palm. It's...robust? Wait, why is it so...squishy...?

You crack open your eyes to an unfamiliar scene. You're in a bed in a sparsely furnished, traditonally styled room. There's a lingering stench of alcohol for some reason. The buzz of people chattering bleeds through the thin walls...

"...A-A-AMON?!"

Your blurry eyes make out a strawberry-faced Rin Nohara somewhere near your bedside.

"~O-Oh...my...~"

Asa too? You still feel the warmth of the massive sun still grasped between your fingers as you look up...

"....just what do you think you're fucking doing?"

She's...she's beautiful, like a blonde angel. You look to the "sun" in your own h-

Oh.
Oh no.
Oh God, please no.

Asa and Rin stand red-faced, absolutely mortified (Asa failing to hide a lewd, shocked grin).

"Would you mind letting go of my breast, 'Amon'?"

Man, this election was shit. I just need to vent. What fucking happened? We had to choose between an idiotic molester that does whatever they want and a criminal who is blatantly breaking the law but getting away with it. Good luck guessing which is which, it fits both. I know I said I think Trump isn't as bad as Hillary earlier, but it's like me saying I'd like losing my right arm more than my left because my left is my dominant arm.

Oh, and there were 11,000 write in votes for fucking Harambe. Not even I take shitty memes that far.

Why did this year turn out to be the year of shitty, stupid decisions? Sweden and Germany is going pants-on-head retarded bending over backwards for migrants instead of actually figuring out if the accusations and rumors about them are true or not, along with letting them continue outdated ideas like having sex with 12 year old children just because they're "less civilized", like that matters if they're living in a civilized county. The UK put its economy in a worse state than it was at the lowest point after the Housing Market bubble burst and some people are STILL calling for a vote to make London a city-state, like the UK will ever allow that to happen to the seat of their government. OH, and if the vote percentages I saw are accurate, Scotland and Ireland didn't want to leave the EU so Scotland might vote to the UK again and Ireland's probably going to see even more terrorism now.

Where did it all go wrong?

Plan to try out one or two more established universes fampai.

Next up is Star Wars Bounty Hunter. Wanted to recreate a quest with similar conditions to one that ran five+ years ago out of /b/, of all places. Used a separate chatroom, actually came up with the idea of Darth Darth Binks before we knew Jar Jar was a sith lord...etc. Great Quest, well run, player driven, and entirely lost as it had no archive.

More likely she's trying to decide whether to laugh or cry while she rocks back and forth in the foetal position.

You glance back at your hand, hoping she doesn't notice.
She totally does.

You carefully let go of her chest, making sure not to make...any...sudden...movements...
Okay -whew- it's off. She still looks...pretty pissed.

You give her aa innocent a grin as you can muster.
"Sorry, I was hallucinating and thought you looked like the sun. You know...dead people things?"

You grin as hard as you can, scratching your head with a chuckle.
Be strong, Amon. Be strong for Myatsuu.

[Tsunade's Theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAHC9LApmqQ ]
She narrows her eyes skeptically, then scoffs at you before walking out the door. "You're really pushing your fucking luck today, kid. Just have your friend bring me the money we agreed on. He'll find me at the bar."

You sigh deeper than ever before as she exits the room. You didn't know why, but you're pretty sure that could have been another life-or-death situation. Speaking of which...

You climb out of the bed, walking around the frame to Rin, splayed face-down on the ground.
Yup, she's out cold. The room is several degrees warmer around her, for some reason.

You lightly tap on the bathroom for Asa...but hear the running water of a shower inside as you do.
Guess she needed to cool off?

....why is your shirt off again? Although, you note the two star-shaped scars in between the tattooed markings on your ribs now. You have a few questions...what happened, the dream, the things you heard in it, and who exactly was that woman?

You...(Pick two)

>Knock harder on the bathroom, you'd like to talk to Asa now if possible

You look sheepishly at Rin, practically planted into the floor. The memory of her tear-stained eyes comes back to you.

As well as...
She calmly shuts her eyes and leans into you
She smells of flowers and the sea breeze

You shake your head until it hurts. Rin is your friend. She deserves better than this, she must have been destroyed by what happened...

You pick up her small body in a bridal carry, gently setting her down on the bed you were in only moments prior yourself. Her eyes flutter for a second, before she grimaces and murmors from some kind of nightmare.
Amon...please, no...not like this...

Your heart drops to your feet.
What have you done to this poor girl? You died in front of her eyes.
You, the one who she relies on most.
You, who made a promise to her.

Your throat tightens as you go to the nearby sink, filling up a glass of water for her. As you put it by the small bedside table, you lean down to look at her for just a moment longer. You pat her lightly on head.
"Sorry for everything, Rin. I'll do better for you next time...I promise."

You go to the bathroom door, head buzzing over the sound of the shower with your doubts about Rin. You knock much harder this time...

...accidentally swinging the door open. It doesn't connect with you immediately, as you blink your eyes. It isn't until you notice the girl blinking back from inside the shower that your senses start to recover. Asa's eyebrows slowly raise at the sight of the shirtless monk standing in the doorway...

You go nearly as red as Rin did.
"W-Wrong door, uh shower! I didn't know the door was...SORRY!"

You quickly shut the door on the bathing girl, eyes wide with fright.
....just why? Why can't you just catch a break here?

You slap yourself on the cheeks and quickly hustle out of the room. You need fresh air.

Running out of the room you realize you're in a small hostel of sorts. You walk up the front desk staffed by a middle aged man with a twisted towel tied around his head. You ask him if he saw a beautiful, angry woman pass by. He smirks.

"Ahhhh, I get it. Nice going there kid. Aren't you a little young for her type though...?"

You shake your head vigorously....
...fuck, you forgot to put a shirt on, didn't you?
Yup. Whatever. He gives you directions to the bar, apparently all the way down the street with a turn somewhere along the way. You're a bit too muddled at the moment to remember exactly, but you'll find it. You shout your thanks to the man as you rush out the front entrance.

The streets are fairly busy here. You get some passing looks from tourists and shoppers as you jog down the streets, but you're more focused on...

You decide to make finding the woman from earlier your first priority. At first, you wander the streets having forgotten the directions, but quickly make your own.

Just follow the smell of alcohol.

Oh yeah, and the sound of a woman yelling.

You turn a corner to find an open air sake stand. "ANOTHER ROUND, BARTENDER! The tab...? Yeah don't worry about it, I'll pay it in a little while."

"Lady Tsunade, I don't think it's the wisest decision to be spending money we haven't- MMMPHHF!!"

"Hm? No money? Nah, Shizune has just had a few too many drinks herself. What? Yes, of course she's drunk! What do you mean you've been wat-"

You lift the small curtains separating the bar from the street, interrupting the scene abruptly. "Lady Tsunade" -as you think you heard her called- raises her eyebrows, her face tinged red in a drunken blush. She...she was sober not even that long ago?

...was she sober?
...DID SHE TREAT YOU WHILE DRUNK?

She hiccups. "*hic*Speak of the devil...that was pretty fast. Give it here, Bicep Boy. Doesn't look like you're gonna be buying a shirt anytime soon, anyway."

Well, this is awkward. The other girl, a young raven-haired girl around your age, leers warily at you despite the hand clasped over her mouth.

...How could you have done such a thing?
The shock of your mortal injury and trauma of having to treat it have driven this delicate woman to drink herself senseless. Not only that, but the cost of the alcohol, medical supplies, and room must have left her destitute as well.

You prostrate yourself on the ground in front of the two women, much to their surprise.
"Please, Tsunade-hakase, forgive me for the undue stress and error I have put on you! Allow me to repay you somehow; Let me thank you for saving my life."

The bar is silent for a moment
"Is...is he ser-MMPPHF"

Tsunade looks at you, curious. "And what would a half-naked, overcompensating, musclebound vagrant have to offer? How much was your life worth to you? I take my debts...uh...seriously, of course."

You offer Tsunade...
>Nothing but your gratitude

You'll make up this debt on her your own time. You tell her you'll give into any of her demands. Anything! You swear to it!

The raven-haired girl immediately looks mortified and starts yelling something incoherently into Tsunade's hand, but she ignores it to the girl's chagrin.

Tsunade looks dumbfounded, before simply laughing at you out loud. She slowly stops as she sees the determined look chiseled into your face.

"...Oh, wait. You're serious."

You think you see a sly grin on her face for a moment before she gives you her command.
"How about...you bring me back the records from the Gambling Den down the road? I'd like to take a close look at them."

Hunh, a strange task. You suppose it shouldn't be too difficult to find and ask them for a copy of t-

She holds up her finger. "But, you must do it without being caught. This is my challenge. Got it?"

The bartender stops drying a washed glass for a moment, thinking out loud. "Tsunade? You wouldn't happen to be THE Tsunade? The Sannin of the Hidd-"

She quickly cuts him off, her face straightening immediately. "Nope, wrong person."

Ah, she intends to test you! Thankfully, you may just be able to prove yourself with this competition. You'll certainly leave the proctors in the Den impressed.

You accept the task immediately, much to the ever increasing disbelief of the black-haired assistant. Tsunade however, just grins smugly. "Better hurry before it closes then. You're gonna run out of time if you stay down there any longer..."

You jump to your feet, hurrying down the street. As you dodge between people-shaped blurs on your left and right, you rush by a down-and-out man in monk's robes openly smoking on a street corner.

Tai's cigarette drops out of his agape mouth. He stares in disbelief at the open air where a half-naked Amon sprinted past, jumping through the giggling crowds. He pauses for a few moments in disbelief, before he jumps up cursing and chases after his friend- already far in the distance down the street.
"....I TAKE OFF FOR A HALF HOUR AND THIS HAPPENS?!"

You slow down as you approach a dead end in the street, a single left turn at a noodle stand the only route left. You make the last turn to the Gambling Den and...

....that's not a Gambling Den.
Bright neon lights and blinking signs assault your eyes. You hear laughter accompanied by upbeat music playing from inside the huge building. The nearest sign burbles happily in bright yellow and green.

Gato's Gates of Fortune!!

You realize now that you were just asked to rob a casino.

"So Tai...we might have a pretty large debt to pay."

You thought Tai's eyes couldn't get any wider, but they nearly bulge out of his head at this. He continuously looks back and forth between you and the casino, mouth shaping the word 'what' over and over but unable to say it out loud.

You hold out your hand slowly.
"Would you happen to, uh, have a shirt I can b-"

"NO!" he slaps your hand away, furious now. "You...no, you're going shirtless for this, Amon. You die and the first thing you do when you come back to haunt me is to sink us in your CASINO DEBTS?!"

"Me? Wait, you've got it wron-"

A fist flies by your face.

"No! Nonono! It's not that, Tai, I swear!"

The trademark roundhouse this time.

"It- It's Yoru! He has to pay Tsunade for saving me! I'm just here for the task she gave me!"

Tai stops mid-charge, confused. You explain to him the details of your "debt" to Tsunade. He groans and leans against the nearby building as you tell him of your apology and your promise to her.

"Amon...you do realize how much Yoru already is paying this alcoholic burnout, right?"

Alcoholic? Burnout? You're not sure about those, but you do know one thing...
"It doesn't matter. A promise is a promise."

...though you admit, robbing a casino isn't exactly sounding like too keen of an idea to you right now. It actually seems like a pretty terrible thing to do. You agree to go back to the sake stand with Tai to talk this over with Tsunade. You should probably renegotiate, at least. On the way back you ask Tai about what happened when you blacked out.

His face darkens a bit. "That's what I wanted to talk to you about before you decided to take a *cough* springtime tour around the city. It...involves Rin, actually. Y-"

But, he stops as you both enter the empty sake stand.
She's...gone?

The bartender looks up from behind the counter, a grin on his face. "Ah, it's you again! Those ladies headed out right after you did, said you would 'know where to find them'. Good luck, kid. In my opinion, those two seemed a little too heated to handle."

You shake your head. Not only did they ditch, but what is it with people taking these things the wrong way? Was it something you said? Did?
Maybe it's the fact you're not wearing half your clothes? No, people are more decent than that. Can't be it...

As you ponder this, someone taps on your shoulder.
The Bartender? He holds out his hand expectantly to you.
...It's then you notice the large pile of empty bottles in the corner of the stand.

"...They also said you were covering their tab today. That will be 10,000 Ryo, please."

How...how much? Tai looks pale, he may not be able to handle too many more of these surprises.

Tai fumes silently as the two of you head out of town along the main road. How he managed to have that much money on him was a question, to be sure. But, right now you're more curious about a few things...
First, just who was Tsunade, the woman who saved your life?
Second, where would you "know to find them"?
Lastly, what did Tai mean about Rin?

You're about to ask Tai when he manages to speak first, stopping you abruptly on the dirt path far outside of town.

"We're almost back, Amon. Yoru should be around here, but I just wanted to explain that you may be left with a few questions about what you're about to see. Just know...we're not sure ourselves, either."

What...what is he talking about? Tai looks at you intently for a few moments to make sure you understand before he continues.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avMMDOpN52s

"You'd asked what happened when you blacked out...to be honest, I think I can only explain by showing you for yourself."

You...

You hold your hands up. "You don't need to make it sound so ominous, Tai. Nothing bad happened, right?"

Tai remains silent, looking at you for a few moments.

"...right?"

He doesn't respond either way, just mumoring something about continuing on ahead as he walks on. You gulp. Why...did he look so serious? So worried? You've got a bad feeling.

You continue along the dirt road, the long grasses adjacent along the roadside slowly turning to loose dirt and gravel, then broken stone. Where are you going? Soon, the path itself disappears into the rocky, uneven environment. Tai keeps hiking forward, however, so you follow. There are branches scattered around here and there, but as you look around you don't see any trees....

The trail Tai takes slopes downward and with the lack of vegetation obstructing your vision you can see this terrain seems to stretch into the distance, curving even deeper into the earth.

A...crater?

Down farther you see a small figure amid the smooth rocks and rubble. It's Yoru! You shout out for him and you see him wave back sullenly. But...he doesn't respond similarly to your joyous call. Something...is off.

You and Tai approach your solemn friend as you descend further into the site of the crater. But, you have too many questions you need to ask. You can't wait for Yoru to finish whatever he's crouched down inspecting and you ask the oddly quiet Tai.

"Tai, where are we? What is this place? This wasn't a landmark in the map."

He doesn't look back to you as he responds in a slow, grave tone. "...you don't remember, Amon? We stopped here to set up camp, after all."

You stop, head abuzz, as Yoru waves you over. You crouch down and he motions to your feet. A single, white lily lies withered amid the broken rocks.

[ The "Human Seal" theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avMMDOpN52s ]
You stagger backwards. This crater, stretching for a mile at least...this wanton destruction...
No, not this. The Seal couldn't have failed, it can't...

You bump into Tai's chest, swiveling around you grab him by the shoulders. Distraught, you begin to yell and plead. "Tai...T-TAI, please! Please, I didn't...I didn't know I would do this. I didn't mean-"

"No, Amon. It wasn't you."

Yoru slowlystands, his voice strangely cold and lifeless as he peers deep into your eyes.

" When you died in front of us, it cost us. In that instant, some of us lost our hope. All of us lost their friend. But, some of us...lost something even more important- their own sanity. You didn't do this, Amon..."

"It was Rin."

"She became...monstrous. She transformed into something entirely inhuman and...fascinating. Something with more power than I have ever witnessed before in my life. The others and I ran to carry your body to the nearest town, in hopes of saving you. We could only watch as she -no, IT- rampaged alone in the distance, this being the result. When we got to town, I simply spread news that it was the earthquake outside of town that had injured my friend."

Rin...Rin did this?
They sealed...something...in me. They called it the 'three-tailed', a demon.
I'm a monster.

No, you never thought...Rin?

"She's a monster, Amon. A tailed beast...one of the ones we need for your seal."

"How...how did she recover? She was fine earlier! M-maybe it wasn't her at a-"

Tai shakes his head. "Amon...I watched her change in front of my own eyes. It was horrifying. Red, bubbling stuff seeped from all over her body and enveloped her like a cocoon. One of Tsunade's shadow clones had to leave to take care of Rin. Not long after, the earthquakes stopped...but the clone never returned. Tsunade ordered Asa to go retrieve her, as she was busy healing you, Amon."

"When I realized we had stumbled across Konoha's great Sannin, Tsunade, I didn't hesitate to hire her help immediately. She agreed to save you and the girl, for a cost. The fee was...hefty. In more ways than one, we cannot afford to pay a price like this again. Imagine if this happens again, but in KONOHA, Amon! If Tsunade wasn't here out of pure luck, this town wouldn't be on the map anymore."

You ask them what this means? This doesn't automatically mean she's in danger of releasing the tailed beast!

Yoru shakes his head, adressing you sardonically. "Then by all means, Amon, tell us. Tell us what it DOES mean. You're the seal expert here, what other dangers do we have to worry about other than Rin reducing our homes to rubble? Reducing a major city, the heart of the Land of Fire, to rubble? Nothing?"

You...Rin isn't a monster. She's not this Demon! You can do something, you can't just abandon her! You HAVE to do something! But...
I'll be taking back now what you stole from us, little fly

...why had Kirigakure let their tailed beast, the Demon, go in the first place? Why did they seal it inside Rin? How could it have been stolen? Why would they treat it like it was?
Maybe the Kirigakure ninja just wanted to put up a chase? But then it wouldn't make sense why they continue to chase you down despite the alarming casualities they've suffered.

Or, had....someone else sealed it in Rin?
No, that wouldn't make sense either. You'll need to figure this out somehow, but for right now there are more pressing matters.

You urge Yoru not to get ahead of himself. There are huge stakes on the line, but think about what he is suggesting we sacrifice. Rin has been with us from the beginning, we can't abandon her. We don't know for sure that this problem can't be fixed some other way, there's no need to take such a drastic measure without learning more.

"By the time we figure this out, all we will be able to learn is that this, in fact, can happen again. It will happen again, Amon."

"Then...I will be the one to take charge. I will help Rin control the Tailed Beast. I can meditate with her, figure out what is wrong and where. I can fix the seal binds it to her, Yoru."

Yoru holds his steely gaze for a few minutes before finally relenting. "Okay, Amon, I trust you. Until then though, we can't let her near Konoha. We can't risk something catastrophic happening."

You agree on this before you remember just what you'd meant to tell the inventor in the first place- Tsunade's debt.
He sighs as he listens to the story. In his own words, he apparently already paid Tsunade quite a bit up front to deal with things immediately. With the extra payment, the tab, and the casino...this was a literal robbery in a few ways.

Yoru suggests you head back to the apartment for the time being. You can not only figure out where to find the Sannin, but also immediately begin helping Rin.
...If she's okay still.

On that anxious note, the three of you shuffle out of the rocky crater. As you leave, you take one final look at the absolute carnage left of the once peaceful, grassy road you camped on.
Rin...losing you had affected her this badly.
...She cares even more than you've realized.

As you walk through the front door of the hostel and to the room from before, the manager with the twisted towel stammers in suprise from the front desk. You ignore it and continue on.

"W-Wait, you might want not want t-"

Leading the three of your companions, you open the door- short, sharp noises coming from the other side.

...into a drunken, snoring Tsunade sleeping on your bed.

This? This was where you knew to find them? YOUR OWN ROOM?

Asa and Tsunade's black-haired assistant are chatting in the corner at a small table. On seeing you over her acquaintence's shoulder, Asa's eyes flash mischeviously. You uh...guess she hasn't forgotten the whole shower thing.
...You are having a hard time forgetting it yourself.

A knowing smirk etches its way onto her face as she doesn't break eye contact with you. Your eyes widen and you quickly look around for something- ANYTHING- to distract y-

Oh, hey there Rin.

Rin sits alone on the floor, face scrunched in frustration as she tries to read one of your scrolls. She notices you and quickly pretends to have been dusting it off, putting it back in your pack. She doesn't look like anything that could cause what you just saw. She looks...harmless, really.

But, first things first. You...

You sit down next to a nervous Rin. She's looking at you strangely for some reason...
You...you're still not wearing a shirt, are you? That probably explains a few things.

But, Rin comes first. You can grab a shirt whenever.

"A-Amon? What's up? You look...uh.."

Rin stops there, pretending to not have said anything after looking at you for a moment. "You feeling alright Amon? You're missing your shirt...not that you have to wear one or anything! I-I'm just pointing it out!"

Poor Rin, she's clearly red from embarrassment about passing out before.

"Rin." You call the girl softly. You don't want to accidentally scare her with everything about the Demon. She looks up to you, curious.

"Yoru and the others told me. I know now. I understand what's been on your mind with everything going on. I know you were scared when I was nearly killed earlier."

Rin goes nearly silent, her face taking on a few shades of pink as she whispers back to you anxiously. "A-Amon? What...what are you saying?"

"It's time for me to man up and take responsibility, to do what I should have done a while ago. You're important to me, Rin. I should have realized what everything had meant sooner so we could have done this a long time before."

Rin is nearly quaking now, her glazed eyes fixed on you. "Y-y-you're not suggesting that we...you...I..."
She is at a loss for words as her skin acquires a new shade of tomato-red.

"I need to go inside you-"

A chair crashes to the floor across the room as Asa bolts up from her seat, face contorted with shock and horror. "N-"
Rin's eyes brighten almost uncontrollably like miniature suns.
She's gonna...he wants to...Oh, god this is happening isn't it? Eat your heart out, Asa!

"YES!"
"-To check out the Three Tails and the seal binding it. We can't afford to wait an- ...What?"

The other three people glance back and forth at the two girls, giving each other odd looks.
Tsunade snores unceremoniously.

"...Nothing. The Three-Tails, of course. Yeah, Let's do it."

Asa coughs and picks her chair up nonchalantly, putting it back at the table with a confused Shizune. She continues the conversation as if nothing just happened, despite the other girl not remembering the topic.

You sit on the bathroom floor with Rin, instructing her how to meditate properly so you can go about checking for a seal.

Rin seems slightly distracted for some reason. "Amon, what you just said outside..."

"Hm? Yes?"

"...about everything going on and the others...telling you. You were talking about...?"

"The damage from when you accidentally released the demon, Rin. Yoru and Tai explained what happened. I guess everything you told me never really clicked until now."

Rin sighs in relief for some reason. "Oh, okay. Let's continue then. Meditating, right? Got it."

You ask her idly if she remembers anything about who sealed the tailed beast in her. She thinks for a moment before answering with a single, simple detail.
"He wore a mask."
You admit, the girl can control both her chakra and breathing quite well. Now, how to go about checking her for a seal of some kind...

>Check her for a physical seal mark

"Alright Rin, I'm going to check you for any sort of seal markings, okay?"

"...Check me?"

"Yeah I'm going to need to inspect your body carefully, understand? Alright, Rin, take off your headband and shirt, I'll check your upper body first. Rin?
....Rin?"

Rin is completely unresponsive. Seems like she's mentally preparing herself. Good to see her taking this seriously.
You untie the Konoha headband gently from around her head, your fingers brushing along her scalp. Rin takes a few, slight gasps at this. You can imagine she must feel cold with her headgear suddenly taken off...

"Alright Rin, I'm going to need to look at your chest and back now, alright? I'm going to take off your shirt."

Hunh, that's odd. Why did the room get several degrees warmer? Rin leers back delicately over her shoulder to you, eyes fawning. .
"O-okay, Amon. Only...only because it's for you, though...."
She begins to slide the edges of her shirt from her white shoulders...

OH WAIT, THAT'S RIGHT! You knew you were forgetting something! You abruptly jump up, much to the surprise of Rin as she yelps and nearly falls over. You grab a towel and some bandages from in front of her. You turn back around to the well-rubied Rin, a single hand the only thing clasping her loose clothing over her pale, shuddering clavicle.


"Here! You can wrap your chest and cover up with the towel. Wouldn't want anything to slip, right?"

Rin inhales deeply and gives a heavy sigh. "No, no of course not. T-thanks, Amon."

You check her back with your hands, urging her to continue meditating as you told her. As you lightly check her along her spine and, brushing it with the tips of your fingers to check for any irregularities, her breathing gets funny for a few moments. You ignore it for now, it was probably nothing. You inspect her neck, shoulders, arms...

Nothing.

You start to get a little concerned. You look to Rin as well and see she looks rather flustered as well. You really do think on the same page.

"Hmm...what do you think, Rin?"

"I think I'm getting a little dizzy."

"A-are you okay??"

"I...I don't think I could feel any better than this."~

Whew, that's a relief. So it looks like you haven't triggered any accidental transformation. Alright...
"Rin, I want to look at your chest now."

There is a loud *SLAM* as Rin faints backwards onto the floor, overheated.

You wait for her to wake up before continuing.

Unfortunately, it doesn't take long. Over her heart you find it...the skin is discolored somewhat, a off-pink hue compared to her fair complexion. It almost looks like it could be some sort of scar...or malformation from a sealed beast's chakra...

When you ask about it, she blinks confusedly and her eyes briefly go blank. She's...never noticed that before, for some reason.

You think you remember seeing a reaction like that before...back in the Forest...
A genjutsu.

You take your brushes and ink, painting the Dharma Formula down the length of your arm and down to your hand. You're gonna make this quick...

"Take a deep breath, Rin, this may hurt a bit. I'm going in."

Rin gasps and begins to stammer until you push your hand onto her chest, directly over her heart. The formulae seem to slide from your skin, off your hand, and in long lines across Rin's torso. Then, they suddenly appear to knit together! There is a shining glow of bridging chakra amid the seals between you two, when suddenly it stops.

You feel yourself being pulled somehow, somewhere!
Rin lurches forward, eyes turning red. A deep crimson energy seems to boil out of her body at the point of contact.

The power behind the foreign chakra surging out of Rin is absolutely monstrous. However, you know you can push back just as hard now.

You unlock the seal of babylon slightly to allow for it...

And with a heave of your own, you pull the all the chakra from the depths of your being and throw it against the titanic force. Something in your own chakra, something deep inside you, seems to resonate with the powers within Rin though...

The same something inside Rin, something inhuman...

It responds to your outpouring. A whisper echoes in your own mind, barely audible, as the bridge of your chakras stops furiously pulsing along the Dharma Formula and connects together, cooperating for a brief moment.

To whom possesses my own strength...I am called ISOBU
...please free me from this place. I can only long for solitude...
This jail that binds me, this seal...look on it yourself

With a flash, you see a chamber. Damp, dark, fleshy...
It pulses rapidly.

Around it's exterior are the black markings of dark seals, forbidden to all. They chain this living prison together -binding life to life. The seal you've been searching for...the demon inside Rin...

Both are within her own, beating heart.

One cannot live without the other now
But neither can I live with her
This is a painful existence. Our spirits incompatable.
Like me, she cannot end this herself. I can only taste freedom when she despairs.
The great RED EYE had planned it all. A trap too cruel.
Neither of us may return home free.
Releas-

You cut off the connection and release the seal, unable to hold it any longer. The Dharma formula degenerates into mere splotches of ink across your bodies.
And it is over.

In the brief flash, you saw arcane designs beyond a simple seal. If you are correct in interpreting Isobu's confusing speech...the seal was made to be unstable and uncomfortable, encouraging release of the Demon's powers. Additionally, it is tied to Rin's own life somehow...and she can't remove the seal herself? Or did he mean kill...

...no, you're not going to think of that.

The last part though...can Rin not go back for another reason? You're not quite sure what it meant. But, you know enough. This isn't good.

You bundle Rin in towels as she lies unconscious on the floor and open the door, shaken from the experience....
And the black-haired woman leaning against the door falls into your bare chest.

"EEHHH? Wait, this isn't what it looks like, I uh...was about to...knock?"

This should be kept a secret for now. Rin should have the final say in when -or if- anyone else knows about her own seal. For now, she deserves some amount of privacy to rest. You shoo the other woman from the bathroom and close the door behind you. She looks disappointed for a minute and turns to rejoin...
...why is Asa pressed against the wall too??

Anyway...you grab her shoulder to stop her, you have a few questions.

"I never did ask you your name. I'm Amon."

She looks at you surprised. "Oh, uh, Shizune. Nice to meet you I guess."

"Likewise- I was wondering, actually. I don't know anything about this 'Tsunade' woman I'm doing this stuff for. Could you tell me a bit more about her?"

Everyone's eyes turn to you in the room. Shizune looks at you with a variey of expressions: first confused, then simply conflicted, then utter disbelief. "You...you don't know who Lady Tsunade is?"

"Nope"

Yoru chimes in. "The Sannin of Konoha? The Legendary Medic?"

"No, sorry."

Asa looks appalled. "The Slug Princess of Konohagakure?"

"Not that one either, guys."

You look to Tai expectantly, already seeing the pattern here. He shrugs at you innocently. "Hell, I only heard she sucks at gambling. Don't give me that look."

Shizune seems takes a bit of pity on you. Despite the out-of-place question, she figures a little help would be innocuous.

You ask Shizune about Tsunade's legacy. What exactly was she so talented in to become this much of a legend? This actually stops the girl temporarily as she's trying think how to summarize this...

'Well, for one she's the strongest woman in the world. She actually might be one of, if not [i]the[/i], strongest ninja in general. On top of that, she's the most accomplished doctor and medical-nin seen in history...something you've gotten to appreciate first hand. Other than that, she has incredible levels of chakra and stamina from her blood relation to the founder of Konoha, Hashirama Senju.

On top of all this, she is nearly single-handedly responsible for Konoha winning the last Shinobi World War. I suppose she isn't the fastest or most accomplished inn ninjustsu, but Tsunade is a living legend in every right.

You look to the massive-chested drunk woman snoring in the sheets of your bed, a bit of drool dribbles down side of her face.

Wow, a living legend.

But considering all of what you were just told, you do have an immediate question. How did Shizune end up with Tsunade? Shizune hesitates at this question, unsure of whether or not it would be appropriate to answer. Yet, she relents at your innocent expression.

"I...
Lady Tsunade once had a lover, her only one. His name was Dan. The two were perfect for each other, from what I understand. He was brutally killed during the last war. I think she never truly recovered from it.
Dan was my only uncle, and during their time together we became almost like family. Tsunade grew bitter and misanthropic from losing him...and eventually left after the war ended. I couldn't see any other choice but for me to go with her. She was the only real family I had left and knowing her, she'd need me. In the end I became her apprentice and the rest...is history."

"So why is she trying to get me to rob a casino?"

"Lady Tsunade is...not the best at gambling. In her defense though, the casino is suspected to be highly corrupt. She wouldn't be the first to have lost more than they could afford there."

"[b]Damn right I'm not[/b]."

All eyes in the room swivel to the bleary-eyed Sannin, yawning awake. "[b]Gato is one nasty little stain. Now, I couldn't give a damn. But...[/b]"

She point a long nailed finger directly at you.

"[b]...I think there might be someone who does. I get my name off the wrong books and you can take down a criminal magnate. How's that for repaying a debt?[/b]"

You....

It's not like muh animays that just change the personalities of the girls/guys and give them all the same basic reason for wanting to be with someone. The girls have different reasons for liking Amon.

You shake your head.
"I am but a humble monk with poor business experience or sense of monetary worth. But...I think my merchant friend might want to take over from here."

Tsunade's face contorts into a confused expression as Yoru steps forward confidently. He clears his throat as he pulls out a plain-looking scroll from his shirt pocket. However, with a brush of his thumb the scroll drops open and trails all the way down to thre floor. Arcan legalese is scribbled in lines upon lines of black typeset ink.

"As you may have noticed, Lady Tsunade, I took great pains in transcibing the details and structure of our agreement into an offical, legal medium. Your reputation does proceed you, unfortunately. As you may read here-"

Tsunade looks blantantly shocked. "A CONTRACT? I didn't sign any fuc-"

Yoru tuts as he pulls out a small pen, pointing to a blank space filled with a sloppily written signature. Is...is that even spelled correctly?

"I didn't sign that! You think you can just fake my-"

"...Actually you did. You were just drunk."

Tsunade jumps up to her feet, looking to Shizune incredulously. Her young assistant shrugs, nodding her head. "I tried to warn you. but you just covered my mouth when I did."

Yoru grins, continuing in a concessionary tone. "Now, considering the terms of service and payment plan have been agreed on...we are under no obligation to extend this debt in reference to any other financial or equivalent reparations."

Yoru let's the triumph sink in to everyone else in the dumbstruck room. You've never been more thankful to have Yoru around to get you out of a morally conflicting sit-

"...But, we're still open to the idea...for the right price, that is."

WHAT.

Tsunade grimaces. "Fine. Just name your terms."

"In exchange for this service, we, furthermore denoting the party standing before you here now, would like....

Shizune takes the angry Sannin aside for a moment and they whisper together in the corner. Tsunade closes her eyes and nods in resignation.

She'll do it.

"I'm not signing any contract this time though, goddamn businessman...."

Looks like a solid roster

>>815938
Pretty much the list I was thinking. Though I was still on the fence about Amon and Yoru's role. They would both fit the Mastermind and Coordinator/Acquirer well.

>>815897
>>815938
That works.

>Not having Rin be the mastermind for the most funny, happy-go-lucky plan imaginable that succeeds on coincidence alone
>Not having Amon be the burglar and abuse the Speak-No-Evil seal
>Not having Asa be the seductive distraction in the casino, walking in with a tight red dress
>Not having Tai be the conman and bluffing his way around using his fists


all of you have the worst taste

>Yoru as muscle having to bluff that he's really strong

>>816034
We can put a speak no evil seal on Asa which she can use to tease Amon after she is done. That Rin one sounds hilarious

Body language and touch, anon. We won't even hear her getting near.

Fine, I can do memes too.

>The Mastermind
Shizune- What can go wrong :^)

>The Distraction
Tai - He just beats the shit out of all the guards

>The Muscle/The Inside Man
Rin - What? A teenage girl can be stronk.

>The Burglar
Yoru - He can just bribe everyone that sees him.

>The Conman/Pickpocket
Amon - He tries to pickpocket an attractive woman and everyone gets jealous for different reasons.

>The Coordinator/Acquirer
Asa - I ran out of memes.

That's Red being lazy and drunk.
