Since so many of you want to know what the hell is going on in Naruto Shippuden episode 443, I figured i’d make a masterpost for you guys :)
So basically these past few fillers episodes have literally been the entire ‘Naruto’ story retold, except in an everyoneisalive!au. Meaning Kushina and Minato are alive, and so is the entire Uchiha Clan.
The last few filler episodes have been more sasuke-centric than the others were, and let me fucking tell you, this is some motherfucking crazy shit.
Naturally, it starts off with Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura as team 7, and at one point, Sasuke and Naruto get into a fight (very similar to the fight they had on the hospital roof in canon!verse) Minato ends up being the one to stop them instead of Kakashi.
This is basically what starts Sasuke’s insane hunt for power, and he asks his father to let him accompany Shisui and his team on a long-term mission (3 years to be exact) so Shisui can train him. Through all of this, he is basically even more arrogant than traumatised, canon!verse Sasuke was.
After these three years, he comes back, and so he can prove he’s really become as strong as he claims he has, Fugaku makes him a lieutenant in the police force.
-That’s the end of episode 442-
Episode 443 starts off with Sasuke, as a lieutenant, catching a couple of criminals with his team. While the criminals are all tied up laying on the floor, one of the other members of the police force asks sasuke what they’re going to do with them, and sasuke tells him “what we always do”. That same member then tells the others to ‘teach them a lesson and make an example out of them” proceed to beat the absolute shit out of them? Whilst Sasuke just watches without doing anything?
After that they walk the criminals back to the village, and all member’s of Sasuke’s team (except for Sasuke himself) have these huge ass smug grins on their face. When they get criticized by some innocent bystanders, they threaten them into submission.
Later on, back in the compound, Sasuke is leaning against a wooden pole when Itachi walks over to him to greet him.
Itachi: “Sasuke, you’re back.”
Sasuke completely ignores him, gives him a really fucking dirty look, and walks away.
Sasuke “Big brother you’re home come play hide and seek with me!” Uchiha IGNORES his big brother for no fucking reason at all?? The dirty look he sends him is honest-to-god scary as fuck. What is this?? Is this supposed to be Sasuke?? Is this what this child
THIS happy. smiley, excited little ball of sunshine is supposed to end up as when he gets to have a normal, happy fucking childhood???
ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS SP. ARE YOU.
this is what konoha supposedly looks like now, because of Sasuke and his team.
it looks deserted. it looks like a fucking ghost town. and it’s sasuke’s fault.
After that you get to see Sasuke (and his team) threaten and attempt to arrest a little old lady, who apparently tried to open up shop when she wasn’t allowed to or some shit like that. They’re stopped by Naruto (who returned from his travels with Jiraiya literally 5 fucking minutes ago). Sasuke tells his team to leave Naruto alone, as he (obviously) wants to deal with him by himself Naruto and Sasuke end up getting into a fight, and are eventually stopped by Danzo. Who, after Naruto leaves, tells Sasuke that he should be much more than he is right now, and asks him how long he will remain confined to where he’s at. He then walks away.
A little later on, Sasuke’s team asks him if he’s really sure about leaving Naruto alone, and they ask Sasuke what he wants them to do. Sasuke tells them to use their own judgement instead of always depending on him, and, as a result of that, they decide to go after Naruto themselves, and they break into Kushina, Minato and Naruto’s house where they threaten Kushina (the only one at home at the moment). Naruto walks in on one of the members of Sasuke’s team holding a katana right under Kushina’s nose.
The scene ends there, and continues with Itachi kneeling before Sarutobi and Minato, apologizing on the Force’s behalve.
Fugaku summons Sasuke into his office, where he sees every single member of his team tied up. Fugaku tells him this is enough, (orders all the other members of his team to be locked up), tells him he’d “hoped that after all that boasting, there’d be some substance to it. But I guess it was for nothing. What you ended up doing, was empowering fools to indulge in idiotic behavior. Nothing good came out of this. You will never measure up to your brother Itachi! I don’t need someone like you in my unit. You are hereby relieved from your duties as lieutenant. I am dismissing you from the Police Force”
Sasuke then somehow manages to convince himself that what he really needs now, is more power. He seeks out Danzo, to find out what he has to offer him.
Sasuke: “You called me, so you must have something up your sleeve. I just came to see what you’re offering.” Danzo: “You came just to see?” Sasuke: “I want to take advantage of you too. I figured we’d have a nice little chat.” Danzo: “And what do you want?” Sasuke: “I want power. Enough to beat him” Danzo: “I predicted as much. But…are you sure? Not only is Uzumaki Naruto the Hokage’s son, he’s also the jinchuriki of the Nine-Tails. If you realize your goal, it’s possible that the Uchiha’s standing in the village will worsen.” Sasuke, in a mocking tone,: “I don’t care. Beating him means everything to me. I don’t care about the Uchiha or the Hidden Leaf.” - Danzo laughs a little - Sasuke: “What’s so funny?” Danzo: “I remember a shinobi who deserted the village long ago saying something along those lines… He betrayed everyone, commited numerous crimes and in exchange obtained frightening power. His name is Orochimaru. One of the legendary Sannin. like Jiraiya, Naruto’s mentor. Sasuke: “The legendary Sannin…” Danzo: “He has knowledge of the myriad jutsu that exist in this world including forbidden ones. I can’t think of a better person to learn from than him. However… he is a man who has lived within the darkness. Remember that’s the price you’ll pay.” Sasuke: “I’m looking forward to it.” Danzo: “Fine then. Before sunrise, go to the tower at the border. I’ll take care of the rest.” Sasuke: “We’re not done yet. I want to know what you get out of this.” Danzo: “It’s your choice to believe me or to not… But I am one among many who do not look too kindly on that monster, The Nine Tails. It’s a monster that could rampage at any moment. I question if it’s wise to leave such a power unbridled… I feel we need the power to fight against it.
Sasuke then scoffs at danzo, and leaves the room. Danzo proceeds to send a bat(????) Orochimaru’s way.
The episode ends with Sasuke leaving Konoha, in the middle of the night, without telling anyone.

also known as a V fic I’ve been thinking about for days that I need to clear out so I can focus properly on requests. someone please make the mint man happy. also contains those traces of you x literally the whole RFA
Five times you had lost him. Five times you have had him slip from the tip of your fingers into a place you could not follow. Granted the majority of those times were similar to one another, the ones that weren’t however, haunted you.
“Still no sign of him?”
“Not a single trace,” Zen sighed, his eyes staying glued to the screen of his phone as he once again asked Jumin if he had gotten any clues on the whereabouts of V. “That trustfund jerk is getting impatient every day that passes. Not that I could blame him…”
