Author: just a rambling romantic PM
Sensei, Kakashi had decided some time later, was an extremely lucky man up until the final years of his life. He rather envied sensei for that, having no such form of anything close to luck himself.

The day that Kakashi had made his blood pact with an animal was one that he would never forget. Sakumo had stopped his son in the middle of a training session and beckoned him to come closer. Do you want to learn something cool, Kakashi? His father's voice was always soft when he was addressed his son as opposed to the loud, harsh, commanding tone that he used while leading a squadron. Kakashi's heart leapt in excitement and he bobbed his head. Sakumo knelt next to his son so that he could see better and ruffled the tuft of white hair that stood almost vertically on the boy's scalp.
Kakashi watched dutifully as his father made four hand seals: tiger, serpent, dragon, and dog. Sakumo paused to look up at Kakashi inquiringly, could you repeat those signs? Kakashi tried to mimic the seals, and came very quickly to the revelation that seeing something done is not the same thing as actually doing it. Almost, an encouraging chuckle came from Sakumo before he bit his thumb, drawing blood, and slammed both hands onto the ground. Smoke erupted around them and his father swept him off the ground and onto his shoulders where Kakashi came nose to nose with a gigantic, white wolf. In its fanged mouth, a scroll was held and was dropped to the ground where it unraveled slowly, revealing a number of names that were signed in a crusty, brownish ink.
Sakumo set Kakashi down in front of the wolf and held out his palm to the gargantuan beast. From his vantage point on the ground, Kakashi took note that the wolf stood roughly three feet taller than Sakumo, was very definitely male, and had fangs that were longer than his arm. His father looked as if he couldn't care less that the thing that had just appeared could swallow him in one gulp. In fact, Sakumo was even scratching the thing behind the ears. A tail that was as thick as a tree trunk, and probably far more lethal than one, batted madly from side to side, kicking up dirt and chunks earth. A golden eye gazed down upon him and Kakashi found himself gripping the black material of his father's pants as he glared back, making it clear that in no way was he going to just lie down and let himself be eaten.
He felt the weight of his father's hand on his shoulder and looked up into grinning eyes and a relaxed posture. Sakumo never smiled with his mouth, it was in his eyes and in his shoulders. Kakashi, I would like you to meet someone, he said.
Introductions had been made, summons explained, and Kakashi had signed his name in blood next to Sakumo's. A gentle hand corrected Kakashi's own as he began to make the seals. A dangerous hand twitched for the kunai holster when an ANBU appeared at the edge of the clearing. A once again gentle hand ruffled Kakashi's hair as Sakumo stood and left.
Tiger. Serpent. Dragon. Dog.
Two gloved hands made contact with the ground and Kakashi met Pakkun for the first time.
It was one of the better memories that Kakashi had of Sakumo, and it was one that he would never let himself forget.
The day Kakashi had met his jounin sensei he knew that things were never going to be the same again.
