I like where you are going with the story but if I can say one thing that just started to bother me, and I'm not trying to be rude or anything, is that Ino and Hinata switched personalities in the other dimension so it should be Sakura and Hinata as the ones that are fighting over Naruto for the seat that Sasuke took.
Sorry if you got bothered by this review

Itachi's personality is totally wrong! xc
Also Itachi is an Uchiha, moreover, the heir. So, everyone would be showering him with love!
Also, it's not "Area 41" it's "Training ground 44". Just thought you should know.
Man, there are way too many holes in this story and characters...I remember reading this a long time ago, but, I got bored after finishing the first chapter and stopped. I mean! Seriously, how could I close that tab, I didn't get it!
I love the plot bunny you have! There was no way I could have closed it.
But, I closed it because something of your writing that made me lose interest, that didn't captivate me.
Maybe I don't like an Sasuke-Naruto character...It distorts my vision of how I see them. Maybe...I don't know.
Knowing that I've read this far is quite something, I had to force myself though, due to curiosity of how it will all work out. Don't get me wrong, your story isn't bad, it just isn't, well, great. It's a good story, I guess. You've placed a lot of effort in it well done.
I'm leaving, bye...thank you for occupying me while I was bored.

Why is Sasuke skipping over that fact that Kakashi is still called Sharingan Kakashi or Copy-nin Kakashi. He shouldn't be thinking whether or not he has Sharingan, even with Obito alive and with two perfectly fine eyes.
"But if Obito didn't die, then Kakashi either got the eye from another Uchiha or he doesn't have one." That was an unnecessary thought. "or he doesn't have one."
Maa, maa, whatever...

Actually, if things go the way they did in the other universe, you'll be seeing Sasuke in the finals.

I thought earlier Orochimaru said that there was nothing ANY OF THE THREE could offer him... So why bother with Naruto?
| Rain of the Forest chapter 16 . 7/25/2015
Okay, two things...
One, Ino's Mind Transfer Technique is a kekkei Genkai, so that means Naruto CAN'T copy it. It can only be learned by those with Yamanaka blood.
Two, since Sasuke is in Naruto's spot... does that mean Hinata likes him?

Aw shit... Okay, I'm glad that Itachi doesn't HATE Sasuke for having the Nine Tails... BUT COME ON!
| Rain of the Forest chapter 7 . 4/7/2015
This might not relate to this chapter... but because of the Kyuubi... does Itachi hate Sasuke too?
| Rain of the Forest chapter 5 . 4/7/2015
Sasuke SHOULD remember this, so he shouldn't be shocked at what Kakashi is saying...

Hmmm Saskue's reaction was a bit confusing, but seeing that he's merging with the new Sasuke I'll let it slide.
As for the genjutsu, I'm pretty sure that it can only be used by the Man-something Sharingan. You know, the one that you have to kill your best friend to get.

He wouldn't be able to recognise the glove as Kakashi's. I'm pretty sure he wears standard issue gloves so maybe instead you can say
"Sasuke was being pressed against a tree, a gloves hand firmly gripping his neck and a kunai to his throat. He was saying something, but the Yondaime's mind couldn't register the words. That is not any ordinary glove, it's the standard issue glove given to all leaf ninja – a ninja from the leaf is threatening Sasuke-kun...and the only one there is..."
The word 'jugular' is too obscure. I actually thought it was some other nasty part of the body. I think 'throat' will suffice.
