The Forgotten Prophecy
Hey there! This Toa Naruto, one the newest writers that just signed up. This story is going to be Naruto x Bionicle Crossover. Yes, I believe that it can be done. This is my first story, so please be kind and don't automatically flame this story. The main pair for this story is going to be NaruxSaku. Still, any helpful suggestions from Bionicle and/or Naruto fans are appreciated. I do not own Naruto or Bionicle®, they are owned by Masashi Kishimoto and the Lego company.

Chapter 1: Prologue
The scene fades in with a large circular sandbox. Suddenly, a large symbol appears in the center of the sand. The symbol is made up of two boomerang-like arches that looked somewhat like the letter 'E', one on the left side, and one on the right side except it was upside down. The two shapes formed an odd incomplete oval-like shape with two gaps on the top and the bottom. In the center are three dots that were in a diagonal line from the top right to bottom left, with the center dot slightly larger than the other two. A few seconds after the symbol appeared, a voice sounded,
"Gathered friends . . . listen again to our legend of the Bionicle. In the time before time, before the Great Spirit descended from the heavens, and blessed us with our three virtues: unity, duty, and destiny; we Matoran once resided in an entirely different world. In this realm, our bodies were once completely organic, similar to that of a human's form. Despite these bodies, our ancestors were able to blend in with the other humans in this world. Parallel to our current culture, these people were protected by their own kind of guardians, called shinobi. These shinobi, otherwise known as ninja, were a race of warriors that fought with various styles of hand-to-hand combat and special ninja arts, called ninjutsu, which were performed to accomplish amazing feats. For a time, we lived in harmony and helped make our friends stronger, by adding our knowledge of the elements to their ninjutsu, giving them the ability to manipulate the elements in ways that they could not have imagined. Additionally, we also gave them our Kanohi masks of power and our Kanoka disks to complement their fighting styles. In return, the ninja taught us in the ways of genjutsu (illusions), taijutsu (hand-to-hand combat), and ninjutsu (ninja arts).
"Unfortunately, there were a select few who used this new found power to wage wars that destroyed thousands of lives, as well as the land that they lived on, in order to fulfill their selfish desires. Horrified and disgusted at the disasters that that their gifts caused, our ancestors and the first international shinobi council, led by the First Hokage, leader of the developing Konohagakure (Hidden Village of the Leaves), decided to have the Matoran, along with our gifts and knowledge, to go into hiding, in order to ensure safety for future generations. To guarantee our safety, our predecessors performed the most powerful genjutsu of all time, disguising our physical features into that of a half robotic/ half organic creatures. This genjutsu was to never be released in fear of drawing unwanted attention to those that would do anything for power.
"This decision, however, caused drastic changes to occur for both parties. Without the teachings of our former allies, we Matoran lost our comprehension of the ways of the ninja, as time progressed forward, and we began to focus more on our technology and crafts. Likewise with shinobi, as a result of their constant struggles for dominance and power, our gifts were lost among copious amount of lives lost with the brutal wars they waged. Once the last battle was over, the ninja had completely lost all intelligence of our Kanohi masks and Kanoka disks. Furthermore, their knowledge of the elements was greatly reduced to five basic categories: fire, wind, lightning, earth, and water. For centuries, the Matoran and the shinobi lived their own separate lifestyles, never knowing that their former companions existed. We were two civilizations, hidden underneath the underneath.
'This can't end like this!' thought the fifteen-year-old genin, who was hanging off the edge of a cliff, with only his right hand keeping him from falling to his doom. As he looked down, he saw how high up he actually was, and could almost see the sharp stalagmites below.
This genin, however, wasn't just any ordinary ninja. Anyone from the Village Hidden in the Leaves could tell just by looking at his spiky blonde hair, sapphire blue eyes, and whiskers marks on his cheeks, that this young man was none other than Naruto Uzumaki, also known as Leaf's most unpredictable ninja, and as the container of the Nine-Tailed Fox Demon. Unfortunately, the majority of the adult inhabitants of the Leaf Village, as well as a few of the village's shinobi, only refer to Naruto as the latter of his two nicknames. Ever since the demon's attack on the village, fifteen years ago, and when the Fourth Hokage sealed the fox demon into Naruto, as a newborn, the survivors of the grave battle saw the poor boy only as the reincarnation of the very monster that terrorized their village and killed their loved ones. Despite the Forth Hokage's wish to have the village accept Naruto as a hero, and the previously retired Third Hokage's attempts to protect the young jinchuriki, Naruto spent the greater part of his childhood alone, unwanted, and sometimes beaten up by mobs of angry, drunken civilians.
Despite all of the horrendous acts that Naruto suffered from the villagers, the blond never gave up his dream of becoming Hokage, and finally earning the respect from the village. To accomplish this goal, Naruto planned to always follow his ninja way, which was to never go back on his word. So how did he end up hanging on for dear life, with almost all of his charka depleted, on the edge of 90 foot cliff? One name could answer that question: Sasuke Uchiha.
Like Naruto, Sasuke also knew what it was like growing up alone and afraid for his life ever since his entire clan was massacred by his elder brother, Itachi. Ever since then, Sauske vowed to avenge his clan and kill Itachi for his crimes. As a result, Naruto's former teammate spent most of time either training on his own, or brooding on how he was going to kill his brother. Despite this behavior, the villagers idolized him for his clan's reputation and his kekkei genkai, the famous ninjutsu-copying Sharingan. Just about every girl around Sasuke's age adored him, including Naruto's childhood crush, who would often hit him if he talked trash about the Uchiha or just annoyed her, Sakura Haruno.
Sasuke never cared about any of the recognition he received, all he thought about was getting stronger in order to kill his brother. This attitude, as well as his Sharingan, didn't go unnoticed by Orochimaru, one of the Three Great Shinobi (or Sanin) of Leaf, and one of the most deadly S-ranked missing nin to walk the face of the Earth. Orochimaru wanted Sasuke's body to serve as a vessel for his soul so that he could gain the Sharingan to continue his quest to acquire all known jutsu, and become the ultimate being. By placing the Cursed Seal of Heaven on the young avenger during the chunin exams, the snake sanin planned to have Sasuke to leave the Leaf Village and come seek him out for power, which Sasuke eventually did.
Naruto could never forget that day. Sakura came up to him and told him how she couldn't stop Sasuke from leaving the village, and begged him to bring her crush back, saying that if there was anyone who could bring him back, it would be him. Even though it devastated him to basically hear the girl he loved say that her heart would always belong to his rival, Naruto, nonetheless, Gave Sakura his word that he would bring the Uchiha back for her. Unfortunately for Naruto, Sasuke proved too powerful for the jinchuriki to defeat, and ended up nearly dying as the person that he considered as a brother left to be trained by Orochimaru. The failure of keeping his promise to Sakura was one of the most painful moments in his entire life. From that moment on, Naruto promised himself that he would get stronger and fulfill his promise that he made with Sakura.
"Dammit!" the blond cursed to himself as he attempted to pull himself up with his right arm. His left arm and his legs were temporarily paralyzed, thanks to Sasuke's new Jutsu: Chidori Current. "I can't let it end like this! I didn't spend two and a half years training with Pervy Sage for nothing! I have to keep going, and keep my promise to. . . AARGH!"
A sharp pain erupted from Naruto's right hand, causing him to shout out in agony. When he looked up to see what the cause of the sudden pain was, he saw none other than Sasuke, with his foot on top of his hand. The Uchiha prodigy was looking down at Naruto with his fully-developed Sharingan activated, and an emotionless look on his face.
To be Continued . . .
So there you have it, the first chapter. Please read and review, but please be kind. Like I said before, this is my first story, so give me some slack. Hopefully, the next chapter will have more action. If you had any trouble picturing the symbol in the "sandbox" looked like, then you can visit biosector01. com and click on the 'timelines' shortcut, it should give you a clear image of what the symbol looks like. For those of you that have no idea what Bionicle is, then this is a great website for you to visit.
