I laugh every time I read this. Its supposed to be tragic (and in a manner, it is), but Madara coming to the realization that Jiriaya is this hyper-competent, super-spy strikes me as hilarious. Would read again.

Holy shit that was funny in a really horrible way
| Hektols chapter 1 . 5/24/2016
Very interesting way to solve things

So the mistake was, before, when the Nine Tails energy came out - it was before Jiraya modified the seal again.
Serious, instead of pushing Naruto off a cliff he should have tracked down someone who can use genjutsu.

hahaha. Well well. Mistakes were made and in the end the world was saved because of those mistakes. If only Jiraiya really was the great and amazing spy Madara came to think he was here. Its rather funny really.

Wow... I don't even know what to say to this one.
| Galisaa chapter 1 . 1/9/2014
Dark, truly unnerving. To... consed a simple death for Naruto is unimaginable to me before today.

Loved the end :D
| X-elemental chapter 1 . 8/6/2013
I have yet to read a single fic that has this mistake happening in which Naruto does not die.
| hanife2 chapter 1 . 12/17/2012
Good fic. Loved it. But also a bit creepy because it could have happened. And I don't even want to think about how, at that point in Naruto's life, his disappearance would have only meant "good riddance".

Sink-or-swim is one thing. Jiraiya's so-called teaching methods are another.
| Orange Spiral 62 chapter 1 . 8/10/2012
Hilarious. Totally loved it. :)
| Ben chapter 1 . 7/22/2012
Nice... Well bloody not nice but you know what I mean, I like how the summoning Justus always involves hitting the floor (like most doton jutsu) except for this one time naruto summons in mid air... I like your way

I kind of wish you added a paragraph about Jiraiya but great one-shot.
| Aern chapter 1 . 7/1/2012
Nice story, its morbidly realistic and provides a great and plausible alternative to what happened in canon but none the less still very interesting!
