all of the jounin

Happy Unbirthday. Here, have some fic.

Chances are high you’ve never heard of me. I retired from fandom over five years ago … but I found your stories and greatly enjoyed them. You inspired me to write, so this belongs to you–whether you like it or hate it. Thank you for reminding me why I love writing.


Shiranui Genma stood in the Hokage’s office, chewing on a poisoned senbon. He almost spat it at the Hokage as the final words left his mouth. “Leave immediately, Shiranui.” Sarutobi Hiruzen gestured to whatever disposable chuunin was his lap dog assistant for the day. The kid offered Genma a scroll. “No,” Genma said. He kept both hands tucked in his pants’ pockets, so he wouldn’t assassinate the Hokage for what he was attempting. The other jounin in the room, all awaiting their own mission assignments, turned their attention to Genma sharply. The majority appeared beyond incredulous, or narrowed their eyes at him as if he were a traitor and they were plotting his execution. A few, though, rapidly turned their attention to exits and obstacles; he knew they were calculating who to kill first if they had to fight their way out of the room. The Hokage’s office had seals on it that prevented teleportation jutsu of any kind. A cloud of smoke escaped Sarutobi’s pipe. “Your mission, Shiranui.” He withdrew the pipe from his mouth and gestured toward the scroll the chuunin held out. Genma didn’t take the scroll. He stood his ground. “No.” Nothing in the world could compel him to leave the village now. “I’m unavailable for missions for the next four days,” Genma drawled. He rolled the senbon from one corner of his mouth to the other. The chuunin shook, glancing between Genma and the Third Hokage. He lowered the scroll; Genma smirked. “What the hell is going on?” a jounin Genma had never worked with asked. “Treason,” another muttered. Sarutobi frowned. If it was meant to convince Genma to change his mind, or be a chiding correction, he didn’t care. Genma would die before abandoning his duty. He knew his sworn vows; he knew his families’ oaths and covenants; he would not betray them.  Genma wasn’t Konoha. “Why?” Sarutobi asked. If the Hokage really didn’t know … then Genma’s opinion of him, as well as Genma’s compatriots’ opinions of him, would only sink lower. He was a poor, pathetic man–clinging to power after Namikaze Minato-sama’s death.  “Kakashi is out of the village on a mission,” Genma drawled. Sarutobi blinked. “I know.” “Why does my eternal rival’s absence mean you can’t take on the Hokage’s youthful mission, Genma?” Maito Gai asked with great enthusiasm. Genma bit the senbon hard. He didn’t want to have to fight Gai, not seriously. But if Gai left him no choice, Genma would do it. It would hurt … but Genma was a shinobi. He couldn’t remember life without pain. “Uzumaki-dono is to be guarded by a Hatake or Shiranui at all times,” Namiashi Raidou stated, from where he stood at Genma’s back. “It’s the law.” Raidou’s voice was bitter, as all the Uzushio survivors were, at the loss of Kushina-hime and the last Namikaze, as Naruto bore his mother’s name due to its prestige. The second born child would have carried the Namikaze name … but now it was just one more thing of Uzushiogakure that was dead. It didn’t matter which Uchiha in particular had been responsible for ripping the Kyuubi from Kushina-hime. The Uzushio survivors would bide their time and see all of them dead for it. It would be a massacre so bloody that no one would ever, ever forget it. Ninja had long memories. “Truthfully, Uzumaki-dono should be guarded by both a Hatake and a Shiranui at all times,” Genma clarified.  Genma wondered if the Hokage would even notice he was a shadow clone. He would never leave Naruto alone, not even with a shadow clone of Hatake Kakashi. Kakashi hadn’t sent a shadow clone on this mission, as he normally did, because two Uzushio genin could not be trusted to a Konoha commander. Once Naruto was old enough, once the Uzushio survivors had more time to grow and recover, they were leaving for Uzushiogakure. And there would be an Uzumaki as Uzukage again. They would rise in might and strength, and the world would tremble before them. And when Uzushio rose again, there would be no treaties. There would be no allies. For Konoha had taught them that allies, that trusting, that letting outsiders in only led to the destruction of all they loved. No Uzushio ninja ever needed to be taught the same lesson twice. Konoha taught them what it was to be stabbed in the back by someone who was smiling that claimed to be a friend as close as family. “Ah, I see,” Sarutobi said. Genma laughed at him on the inside until his guts almost burst from his body. No, no the Hokage didn’t. Because if he did, he wouldn’t be smiling at Genma with fond indulgence. He would be attempting to separate Genma’s head from his shoulders.  Uzushiogakure had proverbs. The two every parent taught their child went like this: “War rages all around you. Its name is Hatake.” And, of course, “Death is your constant companion. Its name is Shiranui.” At seventeen, Genma was the Shiranui Clan Head. He had always lived up to his name. With Kakashi at his side … well, all of the Uzushio survivors and descendents knew what awaited Konoha. “When War and Death unite, desolation follows.”

#1 Admiration (For Tenten Appreciation Week)

A/n: Nejiten with a sprinkle of ShikaTen lol.

The first time a daisy found its way on her desk, a small smile bloomed on her lips and she directed a look at the Hyuga whose desk was situated across from hers. 

He glanced at her, eyed the daisy and went back to his paperwork, his monotone voice filling the silence in their shared office.

 "That’s not from me,“ he said with a shrug. 

Tenten frowned, twirling the lone flower in her grip before delicately placing it atop her stack of books, forgotten. 

The second time daisies made their way on her desk was a week after the first incident and one daisy became three. 

“Again?” Neji asked, entering the office. 

Tenten merely nodded, smiling slightly as she collected the flowers and sniffed the fresh scent. 

He passed by her towards his desk, a small tray with a pot of tea and two cups at hand. He wordlessly handed her a cup of the steaming beverage before going behind his desk, finishing even more paperwork. 

Tenten, on the other hand, twisted open her canteen and poured its contents into a tall empty glass found at the corner of her desk. Once three quarters full, she closed the canteen and submerged the daisies into the water. 

When she looked up, Neji’s eyes flicked towards hers before scribbling something at the paper at hand.

“By the way,” he started. “I saw Shino earlier this morning. He asked to pass his thanks for covering him at the academy when he was down with the flu.“ 

“Tell him no worries, I love those little munchkins,” Tenten chuckled before sighing and slumping back on her seat.

“Is this what being Jounin is all about? Tantamount to mountains of paperwork?” She complained. 

Neji’s shrugged at her and a small smile of exasperation lifted his lips. “You get used to it.”

It was a few minutes of scribbles and the sound of pages turning when Tenten spoke again. “I never ever ever see Gain-sensei do any of this boring stuff!” She threw her hands into the air, scattering a page or two of paper. 

“Tch, why do you think there’s so much paperwork for us to do?” Said Neji without missing a beat. Tenten groaned. 

The third time daisies were left at her desk, it was Neji who first noticed them.

“Okay, are you really not bothered as to who sends this to you?” Greeted Neji as she entered the office, a yawn managing to escape her mouth as she tried to cover it up. 

“What are you-woah.“ 

Littering her desk was almost two dozen of the same flowers that were given to her consistently every Tuesday the last two weeks. 

Tenten was not even fully awake yet when Shino gave the open door directly behind her a sharp rap, making her look at his direction.

"I think I found the culprit. How? Because I saw him exit the tower as I was going in and was quite concerned because he shouldn’t be here this early in the morning.”

Holding the door ajar, Shino twisted sideways to allow the said ‘culprit’ some space to enter the room. 

“You should get inside. Why? Because we’re very late as it is,” Shino said in a monotone. 

Tenten quirked her eyebrow at the gentle tilt his voice had changed. 

“How troublesome," 

Both Neji’s and Tenten’s eyebrows shot up high on their forehead as a familiar pineapple head entered their shared office. 

"You’re Nara.” Neji said, pointing out the obvious before snapping out of his surprised state. But everyone ignored him.

Tenten though, couldn’t help the small smile that graced her lips. 

“Shikadai, I didn’t know that it was you who gave me the flowers.” She said to the blushing boy who kept scratching the back of his head. 

“M-mendokuse, you weren’t supposed to.” He mumbled under his breath. 

Tenten chuckled lightly and she felt the heaviness of Neji’s frown directed at her. She shrugged him off. 

“Well that was very sweet of you,” she smiled and ruffled his hair. The boy’s cheeks were tinged pink and he turned around.

“Troublesome, I’ll head to school now. The class misses you a lot Tenten-sensei, they admire you a lot there.” Without preamble, Shikadai grabbed Shino by the arm and dragged him out. “Come on, Shino-sensei,” he said as he walked out of the door, shoulders stiff and not daring a glance back at his teacher. 

With a disgruntled look and a nod, Shino bid them a good day and closed the door behind him shut.

“Well,” Neji started. 

“Well,” Tenten said, walking towards her desk and collecting and arranging two dozen worth of daisies before covering the joined stems with a single scratch paper. 

“You are now officially a cougar." 

A stapler went sailing straight towards his forehead and he only barely had the time to block it, let alone catch it by hand.

"Piss off Hyuga, you’re just jealous because I still get admirers." 

Neji huffed and leaned on his desk, thumbing a fresh stack of paperwork to be done. "Am not. I’m just concerned for the boy, Mrs. Hyuga.”

In turn, Tenten scoffed and caught him unawares by sharply poking him on his stomach, making him jump slightly. "No need to be prissy Neji. It’s not my fault that Naras get attracted to me at one point in their lives. Don’t be bitter about it.“ 

She stuck her tongue out at him and Neji had this huge urge to roll his eyes but refrained from doing so. 

Instead, he grabbed the hand that poked him and lifted it to his lips, giving it a kiss. His wife gave him a soft smile and a raised brow. 

"You don’t need any admirers,” he enveloped her hand with both of his. “I’ve always admired you, you know." 

Her smile broadened and she closed the distance between them to peck him on the cheek. "That’s cute Hyuga,” she said, lightly tapping his cheek with the palm of her hand before moving away from him and lifting the daisies underneath her nose, "but you aren’t giving me any flowers and oh, won’t these look lovely in our bedroom’s window sill?“ 

She smiled at him cheekily.

She was somewhat surprised to see an elegant bouquet of carnations on her desk the next morning, a small notecard attached to it said, "I love you.” As soon as the words left her mouth, she felt lips smack on her cheek and she turned around to see Neji moving to sit behind his desk like nothing happened. 

She chuckled slightly, a warmth enveloping her chest. 

A/n: Because, yes. Hc where Shikamaru (and the succeeding Naras) would often take a liking to Tenten, just because.

anonymous asked:

Hinata fans say she didn't defeat Hanabi because she is kind but they forget that she's training to be a ninja who kills people for money.

One of the recurring arguments of Shitnata fans is that she is as strong as Sasuke or Naruto but she’s just too kind so she tends to not use her full power in fighting which is why she appears weak when she is really super strong.

The bad characteristic of their fandom is showing again. They tend to make excuses for every little uselessness that Shitnata does. They don’t realize that the more they make excuses for Shitnata, the more that they are admitting that she is useless and weak. They are inventing too many excuses because they want to make her appear like the perfect princess she is NOT.

The crazy members of the Shitnata and naruhina fandom should really stop embarassing themselves with such crazy logic. Shitnata is WEAK against Hanabi. That is the only explanation why she is beaten. If her father sees potential in her then he would have told her, “You are strong but you have a kind heart.” Unfortunately, her father never said that. What really happened in the canon is their father replaced her as clan heir because she is weak. It is her father that knows her power more than anyone else.

Furthermore, Shitnata is a CHUNIN for a reason. She is really weak compared to jounin ninjas like Shikamaru, Neji or Sakura. If she is really strong then she should have at least advanced to jounin. Don’t tell me that her kindness prevented her from passing the jounin test cause that’s really stupid. All databooks also agree she is not the strongest female and no dormant superpower of any kind was mentioned under her profile. Wake up from your fantasy Shitnata fans.

prettytricks  asked:

AHHH I have so many words about shinobi rankings that I've written three drafts and haven't gotten anywhere near explaining properly, but tl:dr I'm pretty sure that military functions are culturally secondary to the social functions of the rankings, which IS the propagation of future generations of shinobi. Tl;dr the jounin requirements are actually the jounin SENSEI requirements and once you hit jounin all evidence suggests that you're on the hook to pass on your legacy via bloodline or student

which would honestly be a great reason for someone to turn down the promotion, and it also means a lot of feels about Kakashi balancing all of the different legacies passed on to him (like does he even have the RIGHT to pass down Minato’s legacy to Naruto? - which is an issue I’d see him having with himself).

That honestly makes a hell of a lot of sense to me. Huh. 

trope i didnt know i needed till now - iruka evoking fear in the hearts of all the jounins who need to hand out their mission reports, not accepting it until it’s perfect

and kakashi is dyslexic

“ Come on we don’t really ever get to spend quality time together….either you have a mission…..I have a mission or the village is being attacked…we shop now and I promise to train with you and I will go all out.” Ryoko said as he looked to Jounin giving him the puppy dog eyes that he was famous for in the hopes of getting to hang out and see what was really going on between them.

anonymous asked:

Can I request a scenario with Kakashi's crush being a fellow jounin and the rest of team 7 (Sakura, Naruto, Sai and perhaps Yamato?), trying to help Kakashi get together with her? Thank you c:

Attempting to look as nonchalant as possible while waiting at the gate, Naruto shoves his elbow into Sai’s ribs as he notices the green of a flak jacket coming into the view of the road leading into the village – according to the current mission reports that Sakura had found, they were the only ones scheduled to be returning to the village today.

Sai stands and looks down the road, albeit, not stealthily and nods, that’s definitely them and begins off on the next part of the plan. Sakura and Yamato would be waiting for him to give them word that the next part of their mission was a go.

Naruto on the other hand, kicks his feet up on the desk in front of him and grins, Kakashi-sensei can’t be expecting this can he? His feet slide off the table and he snorts, perhaps it’s better not to think of that. As the jounin makes their way through the gates Naruto jumps and calls them over in greeting, now to stall them until Sakura shows up – that shouldn’t be too hard, right?

Finding Sakura and Yamato waiting at the tea shop, Sai seats himself at the table and informs both Sakura and Yamato that the first part of the plan was underway and for them to approach their intended targets and that he was heading back to give Naruto backup. The three of them nodded and headed off.

Yamato has an idea of where he could go to find Kakashi; and sure enough, he’s on the roof of the Hokage mansion, book in hand as he enjoys the first warm day of Spring. At least he’s predictable. Approaching him, Yamato waves and calls Kakashi over, book snapping shut, Kakashi makes some smart comment that Yamato isn’t paying close enough attention to, more focused on hoping that Naruto was able to keep them entertained at the front gate until Sakura and Sai came.

Things are going… less than great at the front gate – where are Sai and Sakura and why is this so freaking difficult? Just as they’ve turned to walk away again and Naruto is ready to throw his hands up and let them go, Sakura and Sai appear. Pulling Sai close Naruto grumbles into his ear about what took them so freaking long, Sai simply smiles and looks toward Sakura.

Tsunade wanted to see them, this lie was without a doubt the easiest part of all of this, smiling Sakura and the jounin head off together – talking amicably about their latest missions and what they’re planning to do now that the snow is gone for the year.

Naruto and Sai exchange glances, Naruto shaking his head all the while. At least things seemed to be going well enough. The two of them head towards the training grounds to see if this mission that they had concocted would pay off.

Looking over at the jounin again, Sakura carefully watched her reaction as she led the two of them away from the road that lead to the Hokage Mansion and instead ushered them towards the training grounds, Sakura didn’t notice the smirk that was playing at the corners of the jounin’s lips.

Yamato leaned against one of the posts in an attempt at nonchalance, if everything had gone according to plan, Sakura should be arriving with her mark at any moment; he only hoped that Kakashi didn’t attempt to leave before then, otherwise their contingency plan would come into play and the thought of what Naruto and Sai had planned was enough to send a shiver down the captain’s back.

Reaching the training grounds, the jounin looked around – strange, no that was a lie, this was all to meticulously planned for it to be strange, they had an idea of what was going on and as soon as Sakura slips a woven basket onto her arm she knows; and there’s Kakashi, she could sense his amusement a mile away. Kakashi spoke first.

“Now it makes sense this was all a carefully laid plot to put the two of us together.”

“So it would seem.”

The two of them shared a glance, noting that both Sakura and Yamato had disappeared just as the two of them started speaking – they did however; know full well that they were close enough to still watch what was happening. The jounin sighed and shook their head.

“You know, this would all be much easier if we just told them.”

“Now where’s the fun in that?”

anonymous asked:

You know what is one of the things that irritate me about the Naruto ending? It's the 'Konoha is so small we need the main cast to marry in order to get the next gen' msg bcs clans mst have dzns of members, not to mention the civilians. So don't tell me there couldn't have been a team with a of branch Hyuuga /without a Caged Bird seal/, a civilian-background kid that is /not ridiculed for it/ bcs Sakura was just that too, and a 4th war orphan /that was actually taken care off/. For example.

YEP. The perfect continuation, to me, would have been three tangentially-related-to-side-characters genin to get me invested in the series all over again - maybe with Naruto ass their jounin sensei if you had to talk about legacies and all that again. Konoha is the second-largest shinobi village. As much as I love Mitsuki and like Boruto and Sarada, we did not need xeroxes of previous generations yet again

KNB/Naruto Headcanons

(I’ve only got a few headcanons for now, it’s bound to change/have things added as I come up with ideas though! Also sorry if I got anything wrong, I’ve just started to watch Naruto again so I also must refresh my knowledge ((though I read through a few of the wikia articles)) but otherwise, I hope you guys enjoy this!

New information bolded!)

Akashi Seijurou
-Lives in the Hidden Sand Village.
-Keeps his headband on his left arm most of the time.
-Was treated specially from the beginning and was not put into a normal Genin group.
-Privately tutored Kuroko on his visit to the Leaf Village with his father as he saw untapped potential in his Genjutsu skills, still occasionally sends a letter to check-up on him every now and again.
-Aims to be the Kazekage, is currently serving under his father (the current Kazekage) as his assistant while also being the Captain of the Anbu.
-His Anbu mask is colored a fine Red, unlike the normal earth-colored cloth that is normally used to cover Anbu members faces.
-His Taijutsu, Ninjutsu, and Genjutsu  skills are off the charts but most of his strength comes from his strategic ability.
-He has gained the approval of most of the citizens as he often helps those who can’t afford food by setting them up with a special payment plan, going out of his way to see that repairs are made to the poorer districts, and generally keeping as many people happy as he possibly can; has been told he holds too much compassion.

Aomine Daiki
-Lives in the Hidden Leaf Village.
-Has his headband on his forehead, forgets to wear it a lot and gets scolded for it.
-For the Chuunin exams, he began to be tutored under Anbu Captain Imayoshi Shoichi, who had been tutored by the great Harasawa Katsunori in the past (Imayoshi took interest in Aomine simply because he wanted him to join the Anbu as his speed was a much needed asset).
-His speed was always off the charts, combined with his strong Taijutsu he skills, he managed to be promoted to at least Chuunin despite his Ninjutsu and Genjutsu being relatively poor.
-He was in a Genin team with Momoi and Kuroko; he was the only one who successfully passed the Chuunin exams the first time they entered, and agreed to train the two to pass if they agreed to call him sensei.
-He has no aspirations on what he wants to be, jokingly saying he wants to be the Hokage but Momoi states that he’s lying; Kuroko figures that, with the type of person Aomine is, he may being to train Ninja dogs for a living.  
-He fondly remembers the time when he was younger and used to nap atop the Ninja Academy, annoying Kuroko as Aomine had potential and theorizes the only reason he’s no good at Genjutsu or Ninjutsu is because he never bothered showing up to class.

Kise Ryouta
-Lives in the Hidden Leaf Village.
-Wears his headband around his neck, along with a necklace that has the Kise Clan symbol on it.
-Was placed in a team with Moriyama and an unnamed female (whose crush on Kise frustrated Moriyama to the point he declared the blonde as his greatest rival).
-Their sensei was the strict Kasamatsu, who kicked their asses into gear when they were flirting instead of working.
-The Kise Clan is known well for their beautiful looks but not so much their talent, something Ryouta wishes desperately to change.
-Despite his lack of interest in the Ninja Academy he learns well by spying on other students practicing, copying the hand seals and then creating an even more powerful version of the Jutsu. He gains the nickname the ‘Copycat’ Ninja and also gains the scorn of many.
-When they were younger, he and Aomine used to race across the village to see who could reach the other end first; he has yet to match Aomine’s speed, though as they grow older he’s planning on challenging Aomine to a rematch.
-He enjoys visiting the Academy to see Kuroko but that irritates the latter due to half of the students no longer giving him their attention, thus nothing gets learned that day.
-Kise wishes to becoming a Jounin (stuck doing mindless missions as a Chuunin and not finding the time to take the Jounin exam)

Kuroko Tetsuya
-Lives in the Hidden Leaf Village.
-Has his headband wrapped around his right arm.
-Formed a Genin team with Aomine and Momoi.
-His sensei was Aida Riko, a young sensei who knew perfectly how to train the three individuals (though her and Momoi seemed to have some rivalry going on, Riko still cared deeply for all three of them).
-Ascends to Jounin level relatively easily, he felt nervous about having to have his own Genin team but finds he’s a relatively good teacher as all three of his students flourish under his methods.
-He’s particularly talented at Genjutsu, and with his lack of presence, missions requiring stealth tend to be his favorite assignments to take.
-He will occasionally teach a class at the Ninja Academy where both of his parents also teach, teaching them specifically on Genjutsu’s; he tends to favor the underdogs who also struggle in one of the three ninja arts, knowing what it was like to be bullied for having a special interest in only one field and poorly performing in the others.
-Spends most of his free time with either Kise or Aomine, as they are always the one to drag him out of his house before he can settle down with a freshly bought book to relax.

Midorima Shintarou
-Lives in the Hidden Leaf Village.
-Has his headband properly on his forehead.
-His team consisted of Takao and unnamed female.
-His sensei was the recently promoted Miyaji Kiyoshi (he and Midorima did not originally get along, but Takao teased it was because they were the opposite types of Ninja, Miyaji always appearing on the front line while Midorima had to stay back).
-He was the top student at the Ninja Academy, and encourages his younger sister to also blow her classmates out of the water, agreeing to help her practice chakra control (which she has the most issues with) and agrees to teach her at least one difficult Ninjutsu when she finally graduates.
-His family owns a clinic which heavily inspired him to become a Medical-nin, spending a few years of his life travelling abroad to learn different techniques that could save lives (his family wrote him every day).
-Has the highest mission count of all the GoM ninja’s as he believed nothing could replace experience on the battlefield, and despite him hardly participating in the action, he became talented with long-range weapons to keep himself away from the carnage while also seeing a large variety of wounds and learning the best way to treat them.
-While studying under the head medical-nin in the Sand Village, Midorima had met Akashi and befriended him, having never met someone who was ambitious as he was; he was offered a position as head medical-nin in the Sand from Akashi when he becomes Kazekage, which he refused to accept until Akashi actually ascended to said position.

Murasakibara Atsushi
-Lives in the Hidden Sand Village.
-Wears his headband loosely around his neck, it often falls off.
-Was in a team with Himuro and an unnamed female that he never bothered to learn the name of.
-Was taught by the Legendary Araki Masako, well-known for being strict and an expert strategist (Murasakibara didn’t see the big deal about her, as he just thought she was extra bossy and a little scary).

-He had once lived in the Hidden Leaf Village but due to family issues, he was sent off to the Sand Village to train instead. He’s not used to the brutal terrain and complains nearly every day about the heat.
-He’s talented at making food pills and other food related recovery items.
-Despite his rather large size he’s particularly agile and Akashi, who had discovered his talents and decided to help them flourish, will often call on him to help with an Anbu mission if he sees that it requires Murasakibara’s skill set.
-He likes to build “sandmen” during the winter months which in turn entertains the children; he had said that he didn’t do it for them and that he was bored, but it has since become a daily class, with him teaching them how to control the sand with their chakra and create a variety of different forms with it.
-He has a very low mission count as he prefers to sleep in all day, the missions he does take only because his teammates worry about how he will buy his snacks to survive thus they push him into at least tagging along on their own. 


Kagami Taiga
-Used to live in the Hidden Waterfall Village, but moved to the Hidden Leaf Village after passing the Chuunin exams.
-Former sensei was Alex Garcia, one of the most legendary figures in Ninja history; she took both Himuro and Kagami under her wing as she saw they both had something special, though to be seen as an official team another member was added.
-Kuroko is the first new person he meets in the Leaf Village as he’s the one assigned to show him around; he thinks he’s wimpy at first but is instantly amazed at Kuroko’s Genjutsu skills when he demonstrates them.
-Learned to infuse chakra in his fists and legs to make him more powerful, but often has trouble controlling said power, and causes too much damage when fighting in enclosed areas.
-Used to look down on D-missions and was given an A rank mission by the irritated Waterfall Village leader; after watching the death of his third teammate he knew that he had to stop being so hot-headed, and left the Village to get a fresh start elsewhere.
-Specializes in Fire-Style Jutsu’s.

Himuro Tatsuya
-Used to live in the Hidden Waterfall Village, but moved to the Hidden Sand Village after failing the Chuunin exams.
-Former sensei was Alex Garcia, one of the most legendary figures in Ninja history; she took both Himuro and Kagami under her wing as she saw they both had something special.
-First met Murasakibara when he was wallowing in self-pity; said ninja told him to get over it and move on,  causing Himuro to dislike him at first. He later finds out that he’s going to be training under the same Sensei as Murasakibara and gives a sweet snack as a peace offering (he had won Murasakibara’s loyalty from that point on, even if they did disagree most of the time).

-Specializes in Ice-Style Jutsu’s.

wildtabbykat  asked:

deja vu verse had the idea that some members of anbu purposely remained as chunin so that part of their excuse could be 'who me? anbu? i'm just a chunin!' and so that things that require for all/most jounin to be called in dont take away all of the anbu too. Do you think that you might use that premise in some of your stories?

Maybe? It hasn’t really come up at any point that I can think of. Ranks seem….pretty loose, honestly? Like Might Dai was one of the strongest shinobi anywhere and never advanced past genin. Tsume is a Clan Head and also a tokujo. Genma and Raido were Minato’s bodyguards and are still tokujo. 


Prompt: overnight transformation
Submitted by: glorska 
Setting: After chapter 676
Pairing: SasuSaku

Summary: While trapped under the ultimate tsukuyomi, she is his fantasy.

On Madara’s command the surface of the moon, dyed crimson, cast its acrimonious spell upon the shinobi forces.

Though many tried to resist, their abundant strength and savvy left them defenseless against the ultimate opponent - their own desires - the childlike hopes and selfish wants that are repressed and marginalized for the sake of duty or personal philosophy. 

But now, staring up into the scarlet sphere dotted with slowly rotating tomoe, every sense of obligation receded into the dark crevices of minds that previously reflected upon nothing else. 

In a single moment every man, woman, and child under the rapidly darkening sky was thrust into a vision of the life they’d always wanted. And in Sasuke’s, naturally, hers was the very first face he saw. 

“Sasuke-kun,” she said his name in a hurried whisper, emerging from an adjoining room. She was dripping, presumably from the shower, with waist-length pink locks wetting everything in their path as they swayed. After adjusting her towel, the kunoichi ran a wide comb through her long hair…


That was wrong.

The Uchiha blinked, reaching for the traces of something his mind was trying to grasp.  

He lost the beginnings of the fleeting thought upon hearing the tail end of her next sentence.

“…I mean, what will Mikoto-san say if she sees us like this?”

“Mikoto,” he stated, tentatively. “My mother?” He hadn’t heard that name spoken in years. 

The kunoichi raised an incredulous eyebrow, before walking over to the dresser. “Yes, Sasuke-kun, your mother, the lady of the Uchiha clan who can have me roasted alive for corrupting her precious son.”

“But she’s,” suddenly, a second knowledge afforded itself to Sasuke, overriding the sad truths he’d come to know. “At the clan meeting with my father and Itachi.They won’t be back for hours.”

She pulled a shirt from one of the drawers, his drawer. It was black with the Uchiha insignia printed on its back. Sakura bit her lip, turning toward him. “Aren’t they expecting you?”

The young Uchiha smirked. “Hn. Our team returned from the last mission earlier than expected.” It felt as though he was a spectator in his own body, watching the conversation transpire. 

“That was all your doing, jounin-san.” She smiled at him, serene and doting, while a glint of something devilish flickered in her eyes. “But I guess I won’t be needing this." 

She tucked the shirt neatly back into the drawer before untying the bath towel and letting it fall away.

The medic stood before Sasuke in all her glory, leaving him even more speechless than usual. She was all firm athletic legs, soft curves and wide hips behind a tarp of creamy, still glistening skin.

She strode toward him with bold, confident steps not at all reminiscent of the cautious unease with which she most recently approached him. "It’s been awhile, nee, Sasuke-kun.”

“S-Sakura,” his voice came out in a strangled whisper. From this close, her subtle vanilla and floral scent was intoxicating. He gently pulled her towards him by her waist, relishing the supple feel of her back beneath his fingers.

Her lips parted slightly, awaiting a kiss and he was all too ready to oblige when…


Suddenly, he was back on the battlefield beside Naruto who had used the tailed beasts inside him to break the genjutsu. 

“Oi! Teme! You were spaced out the longest like a total loser. What’s the matter with you?”

The Uchiha’s cheeks were flushed and his breathing slightly erratic. 

“Are you alright, Sasuke-kun?” asked Sakura, the real one with short hair, and a yin seal on her large forehead, and a perpetual glaze of pain in her eyes that he could only imagine he was the reason for. 

She pressed her hand against his cheek, clearly concerned. 

Without thinking, he leaned down and kissed her briefly. Because she was there. Because she always had been. And because he’d be damned if he was letting her get away now. 


"S-Sasuke-kun,” she stammered, unaware of what to make of the situation. “Why did you…”

He smirked at her confused expression. “After the war, Sakura.” He wouldn’t make her lonely again. 

As Kakashi watched his former students the missing pieces finally clicked into place. ‘So that’s what you’re after,’ he thought. 'Sasuke.’

One minute he was ignoring the girl, the next he kissed her. The jounin made a mental note that sooner or later he’d have to teach that Uchiha a thing or two about the rules of courtship.

Notes: Here’s a fic while you wait for the new chapter. Enjoy! Thanks for reading, guys! (Going to sleep now).

anonymous asked:

What concepts of the war arc would you have rewritten to make it better?

Hi, Anon. Sorry for not answering earlier. If I could, I would’ve rewritten everything in the War Arc. My main complaints are:

1) The lack of politics and repercussions on economy. Again, it seems like the villages have no money problem, especially Konoha which was completely destroyed by Pain. The Daimyos and Feudal Lords are complete fodders, they could’ve been developed to show more of their role in the country. The Kages became BFFs in 5 minutes BECAUSE TOBI WAS SO STUPID HE FUCKING DECLARED A WORLD WAR INSTEAD OF TAKING THEM BY SURPRISE. Gaara’s pathectic speech made all the shinobis of the Alliance friends. It would’ve added depth to the arc if they had to solve internal conflicts in the Alliance. Civilians weren’t shown at all.

2) Small villages didn’t participate. They were completely forgotten, like the Nukenins. After all, Takigakure is known for producing skilled jounins and never got invaded (a feat Konoha clearly lacks). It would be a good opportunity to give more developpement to the world building, since Kishi completely neglected it, and we know that only Genins were protecting the 5 Great Villages, the small countries could’ve attacked them for their own benefits. Also, Akatsuki and Zabuza aren’t the only nukenins in the world, they could’ve joined Tobi and make the war look less like a bad anime adaptation of the Walking Dead.

3) Developpement of the characters. During this arc, not only the secondary characters like Konoha’s Rookies didn’t have developpement, but the main cast too. Sakura is still forever in love with Sasuke, and Naruto is still a selfish, attention-seeking brat. Sasuke wasn’t as bad as them, since he realized the flaws of the system (but not his brother’s, since Itachi is Kishi’s favourite), but his motivations weren’t well explained, his bipolar attitude is annoying and the narrative constantly show him as “in darkness” (that’s not his fault, of course, it’s because of Kishi’s bad writing). Orochimaru became a comic relief, Obito was plain ridiculous, he went from “it’s because the system is bad, not just because of Rin” to “RIN WAS THE ONLY LIGHT OF MY LIIIIIFE”, Madara’s defeat was bullshit, he’s a sensor, he should’ve know that Zetsu was attacking him and he was replaced with…Kaguya, the most pathetic and boring and EMPTY villain in Humanity’s history.

4) We didn’t see the horror of war in that arc. It was better executed in FLASHBACKS about the 2nd and 3rd Great Shinobi Wars.

5) The resurrection thing was bullshit. Suna didn’t attack Konoha because of stupid brothers’ rivalry but because of economical problems. And one thing that bothers me, why didn’t Rikudo talk directly with Ashura and Indra? Or Madara and Hashirama? Why did he wait? Why did he believe that Naruto will break the cycle of hatred?

6) Bijuus, and especially Kurama, were treated like trash. Naruto beated the hell out of Kurama to take his power despite all the times the beast saved his life, and after a few hours, they just became friends? WTF? What did Naruto do to deserve Kurama’s trust? And the other Bijuus?

7) Power-ups. Between Sakura who was storing chakra just to impress Sasuke despite her and her friends being in dangerous situations and fodders and Neji dying around her, Naruto who can fly and give new eyes and ghost!Obito who gives his MS to Kakashi who can with them use Perfect Susanoo, I can’t see how other ninjas stand any chance against Naruto and Sasuke. No wonder they don’t attack Konoha in Gaiden. They probably wait for Naruto’s death.

8) Edo Tensei. There is no reason to resurrect characters if half of them are sealed off-screen and the other half, like most of the Akatsuki , are shamed (Sasori’s first and second defeat were ridiculous, and no I won’t talk about Kakuzu’s and Deidara’s, or else this post will be the longest of tumblr).

9) Making us hope for Hidan’s return and then not having a single information about him? Itachi being held AGAIN as a saint who did nothing wrong and even praised by Hashirama?

Hello! Thank you so much for recommending the fanfic Welkin it was such a great read and I'm kind of sad that it's finished!! Daemon and Tsuna's relationship was something I never knew I needed... Do you have any other KHR recommendations that just really struck a chord in you?

Glad you liked that one :) Daemon/Tsuna wasn’t ever a pair I even considered until Welkin. I guess I could rec a few I’ve read just in the past few months that stuck with me?

Second Best by Luki

Sometimes Dino wonders if people remember that the tenth Vongola boss was actually Reborn’s second student.

The Bloody Boys by Luki

Nana heralds from a family of serial killers. She neglects to mention this to her husband, but when Iemitsu makes it clear he doesn’t expect Tsuna to join his family, Nana brings him into hers.

This becomes a problem when Iemitsu changes his mind…

Does Your Amber Heart Bleed Purple Gold by Adel Mortescryche (Mortescryche)

The last thing anyone expected was for the older twin to manifest Cloud Flames.

(Or the one in which Tsuna is Xanxus’ Cloud Guardian, flat-out terrifies anyone who’s heard about him, has a younger brother who loves him, is possibly in a queerplatonic long-distance relationship with Hibari but will never admit it, and is the big brother you never knew you wanted in your life.)

Force of Nature by Ramabear (RyMagnatar) (this one’s a crossover with Naruto; still very good)

He had died- honorably, he’d like to think, despite living as a villain and an assassin for over half a century- and that, as far as Xanxus had ever figured, would be the end of that. No heaven. No hell. Just life when you were breathing and nothingness when you stopped.

Except that it didn’t, quite, turn out that way. Except he came back as the son of the kindest, sometimes saddest father in the world. In both worlds. A father that he knew, without a doubt, to be his flesh and blood. All at once, Xanxus had everything he’d wanted as a child. A home. A family. Stability. And he was going to fight like hell and beat down anyone who tried to take it from him, no matter what his age.

(In which Sakumo raises a son who speaks multiple languages from birth, all of them gibberish to the poor single father jounin, spits vulgarity with the same ease as he does his praise and burns with an unshakable determination to build himself a family that will not fall, no matter who or what is thrown against it.)

Dearly Beloved by WizardsGirl (I recently reread this one, I do love the Bel/Sorako here, hopefully there might be more.)

I had died, and been reborn into the younger twin sister of a boy named Tsunayoshi. His life is pretty hectic, but I promise to be the best little sister ever, and help him through everything. Even the Mafia.

That means TenTen and Shino are jounin?

So I was checking out the ranks shown in the latest Boruto fanbook…

Hinata = Chuunin

Sai = Chuubu / Support section (his rank is different as he was trained as an ANBU)

Sakura = Jounin

Shikamaru = Jounin

Lee = Jounin

… and noticed all shinobis involved this time in the chuunin exams (Shikamaru, Lee…) have high ranks.

So that means Shino and TenTen are also jounin

That makes me so happy!!!! My queen of steel is an incredibly strong jounin now.

anonymous asked:

Not to put you off from sharing more of your genius, but if you're curious about a background character fix-it, i'd recommend The Yondaime's Assisstant by DianaMoth on ffnet. "When I reincarnated in the world of Naruto, I was lucky enough to live in Konoha but not lucky enough to get all the superpowers you could hope for. I failed my jounin-sensei test and ended up in the Genin Corps." Genma is one of the main characters too! And there is an OC but a VERY clever one. Give it shot sometime!

Thanks. ^-^

Title: A Love Story Like Never Before

Pairing: NaruHina

Prompt: Day 26– Family Album

“Hinata, do you remember this?” Naruto smiled, pointing to a picture. “It was of our first date. I can remember it like it was yesterday. Remember how you offered to pay for our lunch when you thought I didn’t have enough? I couldn’t stop blushing! I was so nervous that you would be disappointed but you reassured me so many times that everything was just perfect because we were together.” He turned the page.

“And remember this one?” He showed her the page and pointed to a picture of them when they were younger. “When we went on that double date with Sai and Ino? And—and this guy started to flirt with you and I got so mad that I hit him really hard on the jaw when he touched your hair. We got kicked out.” He laughed, remembering that event clearly. “You scolded me for doing that. But you couldn’t give me the silent treatment for long.”

He turned the page and browed over the photos, stopping on one.

“Kiba took this one, remember? It was when I proposed to you on top of the Hokage Monument. All of our friends were hiding and popped out once you said yes. But we didn’t care. It was just us.” He stared at the photo. There was so much emotion in that time and Kiba somehow managed to capture the couple staring lovingly into each other’s eyes. “Everyone asked for a copy of this.”

“Ah, this one.” He pointed at another photo. “You took this picture right after you told me I was going to be a dad. You caught me crying. Who could blame me? I was going to be a father.” He smiled warmly. “You had the biggest smile I have ever seen.” He turned the page and touched a flower that he gave to Hinata in their first anniversary. “Do you remember this flower? I was on a mission on the day of our anniversary. I somehow managed to come back and I had no time to buy you a flower because it was late at night. So I cut a flower from our garden and apologized for coming late.
