an arrested development au for @baasama
in an effort to appear more charitable, madara deigns to adopt a child. was this meant to spite his grandsons? of course not. but, madara thinks irritably, perhaps this new addition will actually finish her cottage cheese. he glares at shisui and wonders if he knows this is his fault.
“excuse me,” madara calls, getting the boys’ attention.
obito puts down the desk of cards he’d been using for his magic trick. shisui stops fixing his hair to ensure his perfect curl consistency and itachi just sighs as he lowers whatever company report he might have been reading. sasuke tries to replicate his brother, aiming for exasperated yet attentive, but falls laughably short.
“i’d like you all to meet…” madara turns to the girl the fire country embassy had entrusted him with and tries to remember what might have been on the paperwork. deciding her name isn’t that important, he waves the matter off. “she is your new sister.”
they react as strongly as he expected they would so madara tries not to look too smug.
