Naruto uzumaki. A person with a hard life known. But what if something from another universe was in konoha and changed his life long before he ended up in the academy. We shall now see how he fares with certain animatronics impacting his life. This is the ninja chronicles!
It was October tenth three years after the kyuubi attack in konoha and as usual the local 'fox hunt' was going on. A small blonde haired kid with deep blue eyes in ragged clothing ran dodging some kunai and makeshift weapons like a wooden pole with the tip sharpened into a spear. The young child didn't understand why they always hated him. He hadn't even done anything to them. He ducked and saw a sword had just missed his head. As he passed the thrown weapon he grabbed the hilt and started to deflect on instinct the weapons before he spotted what looked like a old building that he shot into and heard the mob chasing him stop. He turned around and saw that the mob was looking at the place in fear and glee. Everyone but young Naruto knew of the building having been there since before konoha was founded. Even madara and the first hokage stated that the place was off limits. Legend had it that they had sent a scout into the building at night and the ninja was never heard from again. Ever since six nights a week the place was sealed to prevent whatever was inside to never escape. It was just their luck that it was Sunday the day off of the demon of the building. It took a translator to make sense of the sign so ninja knew that the place was home to what they called the fazbear frights demon. The mob made a agreement to stake out the place for the next week to see if the kyuubi brat would die at this other demon's hands.
"I hope you enjoy this last week demon because your going to be trapped in there for seven days there is no escape" said one of the uchiha in the mob with a cruel laugh.
"Starting tommorow your seven nights in hell begins" added a certain white haired chunin.
The three year old was nervous at these words and with sword in hand entered the building more and ran until he got to some kind of office with a whimper he took a fast look. It was pretty bare with a desk, a fan, a box full of masks, a musical instrument, a hook and what looked like a puppet's arm. There was also two screens and a set of clothes. Changing into the purple shirt and blue jeans with the purple cap the child saw it was more fit for a adult and tied the excess to fit him. He sat in the chair with his sword on the desk and fell into a troubled sleep.
The next morning he was awoken by a ringing and found a device that wasn't on the desk last night and pressed a button not knowing it was a voice call button.
Hello, hello? Oh good you answered kid, what are you doing in here don't you know how dangerous this place is? Strange things happen here during the night! Said a voice from the device making the kid jump.
"I don't really have a choice in the matter I was chased in here last night by a mob, they have the place surrounded and are waiting for me to go out there. They said they were going to trap me her for a full week" said the child scared.
Well that explains what your doing here. Guess it falls to me to explain things to you and help you survive. See outside it may seem like seven days will go by but in here time is in flux. A week out of the building is three weeks inside. Your going to see what I mean by flux. Haven't you noticed the office around you had changed said the voice.
It was then the child noticed that indeed the office had changed. It did seem as bare but now there were two vents on both sides and the desk was now in the middle of the room facing a open hallway. Added to the desk was a bear mask with the box from last night has vanished.
"Now that you mention it what happened" asked the child.
Each week in here the layout changes for specific events in the past. If you see any other humans besides you in there their not real but some will help you survive with me. Your going to be aided by the memory of the location's important person. His name is Jeremy Fitzgerald. He will help you through the nights of the first week. Since he's actually dead the threats from this time period will be focusing on you. Trust his guidance for the first six nights. You may call me phone guy. It's what I was called when I was at this era long ago. Yes I'm dead but now I can try and keep you from dying like I did, you will get some messages recorded from me at night which will give you advice to survive. During the day the area is safe so i'd take this time to get something to eat you have until midnight until you have to start trying to survive. Maybe you can learn more about what happened here and help me pass on finally said the now revealed phone guy.
"My names Naruto and thanks in advanced. So any info on this time frame I should know about" asked Naruto.
Yeah your back when this places history began the year 1987. The whole curse started here for this. It started with five missing kids. No one knew what happened to them so that's a good place to investigate and start. I was also just informed of your time and what is going to happen. If you managed to last the first week some of your past opponents will become allies in the next incarnation so I will explain more on that tomorrow morning. If you interact with who would be most likely be the missing kids you might get some insight on what happened. With time in flux like this they might be able to give you clues to solving what happened and freeing not just me but also the other lives lost here. Be warned as since this already happened you won't be able to change events during the day. Your going to have to watch events as they happened. Said phone guy seriously.
"Thanks phone guy talk to you tomorrow" nodded Naruto.
Jeremy Fitzgerald will appear around 11 o'clock so be back in the office by then. Said phone guy before the phone clicked showing the phone call was ended. With a deep breath Naruto found a sheath for the sword and tied it to his back as he exited the office and found himself in a dining room set up for a party. He noticed on the stage was three animalistic beings that were looking like those ninja puppets he heard about from suna. One resembled a bird with yellow feathers and had a pink garment and a bib that said let's party with a feminine shape. Her own blue eyes almost looked alive. On her right and at the center stage was a large rounded brown bear in a top hat. On his right and stage left to Naruto was a blue rabbit with green eyes holding the red guitar from the box. All three had colored circles the males had red while the female had a lighter shade. It looked like a party was going on as there was various kids playing but Naruto noticed five of them in a corner watching. Naruto guessed they were the five kids mentioned.
He walked over to them.
"Hello there names Naruto" he said and took a look at the five. One of them was a red haired boy with amber eyes in a red vest over a white shirt and tan pants. Another wore glasses with purple hair and had crimson eyes dressed in a blue button up shirt and purple jeans. The lone female had purple eyes and similar blond hair dressed in a faded yellow dress and orange stockings. The last two were identical with different colored hair telling them apart. They wore brown shirts and had black bow ties as well as blue jeans.
"You must be new I'm Andrew" said the red haired boy.
"Sunny is my name" said the female.
"Jack" nodded the purple haired kid.
"And these two are the twins Frederick and max" nodded Andrew to the silent twins.
"So who are those three and what are they" asked Naruto looking at the beings on the stage playing music.
"Their animatronics robots designed for entertainment. The blue bunny is called toy bonnie. Nicknamed bon bon. He's the guitarist of the group. The yellow chicken is toy chica or chi and is a back up singer. The leader is toy Freddy nicknamed Fred who's the front of the band. There are two other animatronics but one is currently being destroyed by some of the other kids. They like to take her apart and rebuild her into a mess. She used to be known as toy foxy but recently became known as the mangle. She's a white fox normally. They are supposed to be new generation animatronics as the original Freddy, bonnie and chica plus foxy are dismantled and shut down. The last animatronic is known by two names. The puppet or marionette" explained jack raising his glasses.
"So any word about anyone going missing? I been hearing a rumor that some kids went missing" said Naruto making it sound as if it was normal for where he was.
Jack and his four friends jerked and gave Naruto looks. They motioned him to follow them.
Once in a empty room they sat at a table and motioned Naruto to sit.
"Should have known you were the one who is in the time flux. We can't reveal what happened as you got to figure it out your self. But we can give you some hints" said sunny.
"First is that the mini games here can help tell you what you need" said Andrew.
"Second is that as your the one going through this your basically taking the place of the 'main character' at night and will be seen as that character" said jack.
"Third is that after a few days you won't get to see us during certain times" said sunny.
"And lastly beware the one named springtrap" said the twins grimly.
"Thanks for the clues and advice. Do you know who will become my allies next week" asked Naruto curious.
"You asked us about them. The animatronics. The building itself is giving you a bit more of a fair chance due to your age. Think of this as a test of adapting to changing situations" said Sunny.
" Good thing about a time flux is that you can eat food here to keep your self alive but during the final week you won't be able to eat. The place is a horror museum and you won't be able to find food there. Same rules from this week applies to next week. You get allies from the opponents you face if you survive the full six days. Sundays are days off to recover from the week and where you can meet the next guide" said jack.
"Good to know. Phone guy will give me advice on how to survive the nights with my guides. I promise I will find out what happened and free the trapped souls" said Naruto.
The five smiled.
"We wish you luck. There's some pizza and a drink in the security office plus something your going to need" said sunny giving Naruto a hug and the five left as Naruto went back to his office but heard a mettalic groan and looked around and winced seeing a white fox with a metal skeleton with parts strewn around.
"You must be mangle. Guess I know how your feeling right now. Your reminding me of some recent memories I have. Your lonely aren't you. Just like me. I don't have any friends at all. I don't even know my family. My own town thinks I'm a demon. But I have no idea why. I just don't understand why they hate me" said Naruto as he found a tool box and started to work on the animatronic not knowing what he was doing until the static of the white machine cleared up.
"M-my voice thank you and I do understand where your coming from. No one seemed to care about me once it got to much of a hassle to repair me every day. I will walk you through the rest of repairing me" said mangle.
She did just that and soon was heading to parts and storage and turned to Naruto who was putting away the tools.
"Child thank you for the help. If you need someone to talk to just find me" said mangle no toy foxy.
"Mind if I call you vixen then mangle nor toy foxy just doesn't seem right" smiled Naruto.
"Sure later child" said the renamed vixen as she left to locate her missing parts of her suit.
Naruto went to the office and found a box of pizza and a glass of juice alongside a scroll.
A ring sounded and Naruto pressed the same button as before.
Naruto you are just surprising. You didn't interfere with events as it was getting close to closing time. I think you managed to gain a ally already in mangle. Or as you know her as vixen. Anyway I managed to locate the only other person who ended up in your situation with the ability to use chakra he agreed to send you some items to help you survive. The scroll is to teach you how to access chakra. Unlike you he didn't make it. Got as far as week three said phone guy.
"That's not reassuring phone guy" said Naruto.
Sorry but the final opponent was persistent. At least with these your having a better chance. Jeremy is going to be there in five hours so practise and get some rest a bit said phone guy making Naruto frown as he knew that things get harder from the longer he's stuck. So with that he started to study and thanked the old man for teaching him to read. Three hours later he finished with the hand signs when he noticed vixen had entered.
"Naruto what are you still doing here? You should be at home" asked vixen.
"Guess it can't hurt to tell you but see the thing is..." started Naruto before telling her his situation.
"So let me get this straight your from a future and trapped here in a time flux and have to survive three weeks with each week being a specific point in the places history and through your actions with me have allowed me to become aware of this? If this is a joke I'm not laughing" said vixen.
It's no joke vixen this is really happening. Naruto has to get through this in order to return home. At this point of time to you I'm still alive but I died in 1993 by the repaired withered animatronics. They stuffed me into a suit. My spirit is trapped here and Naruto is my best bet on moving on said phone guy seriously.
"What but what happened to me" asked vixen staring at the phone.
After you were tampered with you bit off a kids frontal lobe. The place was shut down and you and the other toy animatronics were scrapped to repair the withered animatronics for naruto's next week. Added to the five missing kids you can see why the building is cursed said phone guy.
"And apparently since I befriended you your going to be aware of the flux at night while during the day your stuck in the memory of the place" said Naruto.
Not exactly. Vixen here is now separate from events so during the day her original timeline self is there in her place. Only you would be able to see her at that time. It will be the same for the others next week. It's the places way of keeping events as they happened. I got to go my message is about to happen as Jeremy is now walking to the office said phone guy. With that a click sounded as a orange haired man in the uniform walked in.
"Hey there I'm Jeremy Fitzgerald your guide this week as for the night shift your going to be stuck in my form to the others. Now be warned the first night is relatively simple but as you thought it will get harder" said Jeremy standing to the side. And with that the phone rang.
" Hello? Hello hello! Uh, hello and welcome to your new summer job at the new and improved Freddy Fazbears Pizza! Uh, I'm here to talk you through some of the things you can expect to see during your first week here and to help you get started down this new and exciting career path. Uh, now I want you to forget anything you may have heard about the old location, you know. Uh, some people still have a somewhat negative impression of the company...uhh, that old restaurant WAS kinda left to rot for quite a while. But uh, I want to reassure you Fazbear Entertainment is committed to family fun, and above all, safety. They spent a small fortune on these new animatronics, uh, facial recognition, advanced mobility, they even let them walk around during the day, ha! Isn't that neat...? But most importantly, they're all tied into some kind of criminal database, so they can detect a predator a mile away. Hey, we should be paying them to guard you! Uh, now that being said, no new system is without its...kinks. Uh, you're only the second guard to work at that location...uh, the first guy finished his week, but complained about...conditions...uh we switched him over to the day shift, so, hey! Lucky you, right? Uh, mainly he expressed concern that certain characters seemed to move around at night, and even attempted to get into his office. Now, from what we know, that should be impossible. Uh, that restaurant should be the safest place on earth. So while our engineers don't really have an explanation for this, the working theory is that...the robots were never given a proper 'night mode,' so when it gets quiet, they think they're in the wrong room, so then they go and try to find where the people are, in which case, that's your office. So, our temporary solution is this: there's a music box over by the prize counter, and is rigged to be wound up remotely, so just every once in a while, switch over to the prize counter video feed and wind it up for a few seconds. It doesn't seem to effect all the animatronics, but it does effect...one of them. cough Uh, and as for the rest of them, we have an even easier solution! You see, there may be a minor...glitch in the system, something about robots seeing you as an endoskeleton without it's costume on, and wanting to stuff you into a suit...so hey, we've given you an empty Freddy Fazbear head! Problem solved! You can put it on anytime, and leave it on as for long as you want. Eventually anything that wandered in will wander back out. Uh, something else worth mentioning, is kind of the quirky modern design of the building. You may have noticed there are no doors for you to close. But hey, you have a light, and even though your flashlight can run out of power, the building can not, so don't worry about the place going dark. Well, I think that's it...uh, you should be golden! Otherwise, put on the Freddy head, if you need too, uh, keep the music box wound up, piece of cake! Have a good night, and I'll talk to you tomorrow!"
With that the message ended and Naruto turned to look at Jeremy.
"This week is in summer? It's October back home. To me the day before yesterday was my third birthday! Now I see why that mask is here" said Naruto doing as the message said in winding up the music box.
"Really when's your birthday?" Asked Jeremy.
"The tenth" said Naruto.
"So back out of the building your getting out at the seventeenth of October. Right we better make sure you survive" said Jeremy as Naruto wore the mask. Vixen was just confused.
"A glitch? Oh man no proper night mode must be a nightmare for us" said vixen slumping to the wall. Thanks to naruto's size the mask allowed him to keep watch on the cameras while still wearing it. Jeremy said that he had to alternate there. Naruto also checked the vents and hallway but it seemed it would be a quiet night when bonbon arrived and left after seeing the mask. After that six chimes sounded and before vixen's eyes Jeremy faded from sight. Shaking she had proof that Naruto had told her the truth. Giving her a sad look he hugged her.
Good job there Naruto and vixen don't worry things will work out. Your not going to be scrapped now. The mangle during the day will. Get some rest for now Naruto I will brief vixen on what will happen. Said phone guy as he chimed in.
"That's right your going to be with me next week with the other toys in 1993 but what did the five mean about the mini games" asked Naruto when one of the TVs turned on and the tablet he was holding turned it's screen into a controller. It said give cake.
This is why looks like the diner there you have to move Freddy to give cake to the kids. Maybe the games tell us what happen in this place. Said phone guy.
With that Naruto played and grew worried when a kid outside the diner was approached by a purple figure and the game glitches when the kid was killed. Afterwords the screen shut off and Naruto had the surveillance back.
"My god" said vixen as horrified as Naruto.
That must be the reason the diner closed. That must have been when the whole thing started! We just witnessed the first life taken by the murderer. Said phone guy as disturbed as the other two.
"He looked a bit like one of the guards! He had a badge on him" said vixen.
"That must have been why no one caught him. The only one who saw was Freddy! This explains the aggression to night guards the withered animatronics have" said vixen as she realized what it was.
"He wasn't really purple it was his clothes" said Naruto.
But that still has nothing on what happened with the bite. Said phone guy.
"But now we have some information. And with my current clothes I'm not sure it's a good idea. The ones I wore are to damaged" said Naruto.
"That means it really is important to keep you alive" said vixen seriously.
And so started the second day of the challenge.
