A/N: Normally I'm not a crossover fan but I still read them. While reading Magical Mix by venusgal100 this scene popped into my head and it won't leave me alone so I'm basing it off of her fic. Chances are this'll be less than ten chapters, just to get it out of my head.

"Speech"- Normal

"Speech"- Japanese

Speech- Naruto and Kyuubi talking to each other.

Naruto gulped nervously as he waited for his name to be called for the DADA practical examination. He thought he had done pretty well for the written part but he hadn't been able to nail down some of the spells…

"Eh, Uzumaki Naruto please." Naruto looked up to see a wizened old man holding a clipboard and peering around. He stood up, letting out a shaky breath before heading over to the wizard. The man beckoned him through the doors, leading him past other nervously testing teens to a secluded corner.

"Now, if you would kindly perform a Shield Charm for me?"

Naruto nodded and pulled out his wand, something seldom used outside of his classes. He preformed the first of a longish series of defensive spells, trying to remain calm while the examiner made notes on his spells. He was concentrating very hard on producing the last charm, a complicated counter jinx when he heard a "hem-hem" just as he was about to finish the spell, blowing his concentration and the spell to bits. Biting down on a viscous oath, he whipped around to spot Umbridge, smiling up at him.

"If I could have a minute Mr. Uzumaki?"

"I'm, in the middle of my OWLs if you hadn't noticed." He replied shortly, trying to resist the fox's mental suggestion to rend her into pieces.

"Actually, you're all finished Mr. Uzumaki. You'll receive your results sometime during the summer."


Naruto was about to walk away when Umbridge shook her head, smiling widely. He let out a slight growl, before trudging after the short fat "Headmistress". They walked up to her office and entered, Naruto repressing the urge to shudder at the frills and kittens that surrounded him. Umbridge sat calmly at her desk, and motioned for him to sit. He did so, perching on the edge of the ruffled cushion. He watched through narrowed eyes as Umbridge rummaged about in her desk, humming and smiling a little too much for Naruto's liking…

"Ah, here it is…" Naruto froze as he watched Umbridge pull out a sickeningly familiar folder file. His eyes become slits as he saw her small smirk of satisfaction.

"I see you recognize this document."

"How the hell did you get that?"

"Language Mr. Uzumaki. And as for your second question…the Ministry is very powerful."

Naruto bristled, muscles tensing in preparation to leap at the person before him and seize his folder. But before he could even start the leap, Umbridge had idly flicked her wand and frozen him with a paralyzing spell. She smiled again before opening his folder, raising an eyebrow at its contents.

"It took me quite some time to find a translator, but I just got the translated version of your file back today…There are some rather interesting terms I don't quite understand, but I'm sure you're willing to help me out."

Naruto's stomach roiled as he thought about what "terms" she was probably going ask about. Even Kyuubi was quiet for once, no evil chuckling or snide comments. Naruto attempted so swallow the lump in his throat away but to no avail. He finally returned his attention to the manipulating...creature in front of him.

"What will you do if I refuse to help you?" He asked in a low voice, trying to find a way out of the situation. Umbridge smiled and replied in her sickly sweet voice.

"I'll just have to ask another of your comrades I suppose."

Naruto's head snapped, eyes widening up as a mixture of icy fear and red hot anger raced through his guts. "That's not your secret to tell!" He snarled, right hand automatically clutching at the seal on his stomach. Umbridge grinned wider.

"What secret? I simply asked you to help me understand a few Japanese terms."


"Let's get started shall we? Or do I have to call up one of your comrades, perhaps Mr. Uchiha?"

Naruto collapsed back in the chair he was on, eyes closing in defeat. He gave a nod before his eyes up, the brilliant blue dulled.

"What's the first one?"

"A rather simple one, Kyuubi no Yoko."

"Nine Tailed Fox Demon."

"Yes that's what the translation said, but it didn't mention any details. Tell me more Mr. Uzumaki."

"It was a giant demon fox that attacked our village fourteen years ago, on my bi- On October 10th."

"Ah…that's your birthday correct?"


Naruto tried to keep his answers as short as possible while trying to keep from upchucking his lunch and ignoring Kyuubi's mental commentary of how he would handle the situation. He finally shut the Kyuubi with a sharp reply: Shut up you overgrown mass of fleas- As much as I'd love to kill her that would only make things worse. Now shut up unless you have something useful to say!

The Kyuubi growled but kept himself silent. Umbridge listed off a few simpler terms for him to explain, such as Rasengan or Kage Bushin no Jutsu. Eventually she came to the term he'd been dreading.

"One last one, then you are free to go. Hmm, I can't quite sound it out. But it's translated as 'Power of a Human Sacrifice.'. Do you know it?"

"Jinchuuriki." He whispered, slumping in his chair. Umbridge nodded.

"Now, explain that term."

"A jinchuuriki is a person who is unlucky enough to have a demon sealed inside them."

"Such as the Kyuubi?"


"Ah. So when your file states that you, Naruto Uzumaki are the jinchuuriki of Kyuubi no Yoko, it means you contain the great beast? "

Naruto simply nodded weakly. Umbridge frowned, scribbling some note; she closed his file and returned it to her desk drawer. Naruto noted the drawer's location carefully before standing up and heading for the door. He left without a word, not seeing Umbridge's eyes harden and her lips form an evil smirk.


Later that night Naruto made his way to the dungeons and started banging on the hidden entrance to the Slytherin common room. Surprisingly the entrance swung open to reveal an irate looking Slytherin fourth year.

"Look if you forgot the pas-" Naruto shoved his way past the student and looked around, ignoring the scandalized and furious looks that were shot his way. He spotted a familiar head of white blond hair and made his way over to Draco Malfoy. Draco looked surprised and a little afraid but relaxed a little when all Naruto demanded to know where Sasuke was. Malfoy was about to answer when the blonde genin heard a familiar voice.

"I'm right here dobe, what do you want?" Sasuke stood at the top of the stairs, dressed in his normal clothing.

"Umbridge has my file."

Sasuke's eyes widened and he strode across the room to grab Naruto by the arm, dragging him across the common room to a corner.

"What do you mean she has your file, that's supposed to be in Konoha!"

"The hell if I know! But she has it! I need your help to get it back."

"Where is it?"

"Her office, I was planning to get it tonight."

Sasuke nodded and he and Naruto left for the boys' dormitories to plan.
