"Orochimaru isn't' evil! He just doesn't subscribe to the concept of morality."
'Cause, among many other atrocities, kidnapping and subsequently killing sixty new-born children for one's own gains doesn't quality you as an evil bastard? Really? I like the characterization (though Minato being so cold-blooded yet so warm feels very weird) but trying to paint Oro as anything less a bastard is ridiculous.

Having read this 9 years after you wrote this it's kind of upsetting. This story had a lot of potential and I think it would be great if it was put up for adoption so someone else can continue your story.
Really like the way you portray Orochimaru and Jiraiya.

Lol. Orochimarus personality is so delightful to read

Well nice concept but it looks like either this is dead or you're dead. Hope it's the former rather than the latter.
I think I'll still follow in the faint hope it gets updated one day

This is one of the better portrayals of Orochimaru I've come across, I prefer him calculating and amoral with a thin veneer of affability, and showing a glimpse of humanity from time to time (not too often though), much more interesting than some cartoonishly evil villain.
it's not quite as awesome as the story quest "A Good Day For Ninja Science", but more down to earth, only three chapters, but very promising if it's ever continued.

I agree with you in that Orochimaru isn't so much evil as he is a pragmatist and a follower of cold logic. That said, he does have some evil and vengeful tendencies which override his logical self, such as attacking Konoha solely to kill Sarutobi. One part of me does wish he would see Anko as being somewhat important, aside from being a tool or successful experiment. I guess if anything, I'd wish that of all of the bonds he has with people, his bond with Anko would be more true than the rest.
It's unfortunate, but this is where this story comes to an end. This story has had one of the best understandings and interpretations of Orochimaru that I've seen on this website, period. I would have loved to have seen the changes made to the canon story, although I understand that you became fed up with later events and thus lost interest. If by some random stroke of luck you return AND continue writing this story, I'd be ecstatic.

Minato's reasoning does make sense and I have to agree with his logic. Plus with Orochimaru staying, we get to have funny scenes involving Jiraiya dancing naked in the streets after a few bottles of sake. Overall, this chapter offers some interesting insight into the relationship between the male Sannin and even between Orochimaru and Anko. Unfortunately with this next chapter being the final one you have written, I can only hope to see a bit of the start of the Naruto series and how these changes affect it.

It's a shame you no longer write, as this already has captivated my attention and is an idea I had not thought of before. It was well-written and held proper characterization for both Orochimaru and Minato. I plan on reading through what material you have written for this, although it disheartens me to know that whatever it is you had planned was never completed.
One error at the end which stuck out was a single misspelling of Minato, spelled "Minoto".

i like minato in this one. good job. most make him out to be a fool. partially justified but to be a war hokage you need a bit more steel than other portrayals would suggest

Interesting! I've never seen this plot before. I will come back for more when I have time. And btw, I like your realist-Minato. The ninja seem so often in canon-verse to think they are samurai, bound by honor. And while having some is important, living in reality-land and acknowledging others may not and you must be prepared for that is important, as is making the best of your people and their skills. Half if not more of the ninja under his command have to be at least somewhat unstable - they're an often underaged army of soldiers with their own sometimes bad personal histories. Why shouldn't he make use of Orochimaru as much as any of them? And it's true that Oro's defection made Konoha look weak at a really bad time.
