"I, I'm driving black on black. Just got my license back. I got this feeling in my veins, this train is coming off the track. I'll ask polite if the devil needs a ride because the angel on my right ain't hanging out with me tonight! I'm driving past your house while you were sneaking out, I got the car door opened up so you can jump in on the run. Your mom don't know that you were missing. She'd be pissed if she could see the parts of you that I've been kissing!
"Screamin' no, we're never gonna quit! Ain't nothing wrong with it! Just acting like we're animals! No, no matter where we go ! 'Cause everybody knows we're just a couple of animals! So come on baby, get in! Get in, just get in! Check out the trouble we're in!
"You're beside me on the seat. Got your hand between my knees and you control how fast we go by just how hard you wanna squeeze. It's hard to steer when you're breathing in my ear but I got both hands on the wheel while you got both hands on my gears! By now, no doubt that we were heading south. I guess nobody ever taught her not to speak with a full mouth. 'Cause this was it, like flicking on a switch. It felt so good I almost drove into the ditch
"I'm screamin' no, we're never gonna quit! Ain't nothing wrong with it! Just acting like we're animals! No, no matter where we go ! 'Cause everybody knows we're just a couple of animals! So come on baby, get in! Get in, just get in! Check out the trouble we're in!
"We were parked out by the tracks, we're sitting in the back, and we just started getting busy when she whispered 'what was that?' The wind, I think 'cause no one else knows where we are and that was when she started screamin' 'That's my dad outside the car!' Oh please, the keys, they're not in the ignition, must have wound up on the floor while we were switching our positions. I guess they knew that she was missing as I tried to tell her dad it was her mouth that I was kissing
"Screamin' no, we're never gonna quit! Ain't nothing wrong with it! Just acting like we're animals! No, no matter where we go ! 'Cause everybody knows we're just a couple of animals! So come on baby, get in! Get in, just get in! Check out the trouble we're in!"
The band finished and the announcer walked back out on stage. "Give it up for Nickleback! Now, I know you are all excited about this years tournament, am I right!?" Everyone started shouting they were. "And why shouldn't you be!? Nickleback, Metallica, even Flogging Molly! All of them are here this year, at the Black Hills Music Festival! But why!? You want to know know why? For the same reason all of you are here! Here he is, the one man band, the player of the Fuka-hone, Uzumaki...NNNNNARUTO!" He was gone in a flash of smoke and Naruto was there now.
Naruto gave a bow to the wild crowd. "I got one for you! But this one isn't like that one. This is one I have been working on for a while now. Inspired by the people around me during my travels, especially a lady name Talinth and her husband Zavala. I need a hand for this one. Yugito, come on out!"
The former Kumo ninja walked out on stage wearing a white dress. "Yes, Naruto."
"I need a partner for this one. Help me out please?" There were hundreds of cheers for her to do it.
"Alright. What is it?"
"The song is called, 'Seven Spanish Angels'." He cleared his throat and started playing slowly. "He looked down into her brown eyes and said say a prayer for me. She threw her arms around him. Whispered God will keep us free. They could here the riders coming. He said this is my last fight. If they take me back to Texas, they won't take me back alive."
"There were seven Spanish angels at the alter of the Sun. They were praying for the lovers in the valley of the gun. When the battle stopped and the smoke cleared, there was thunder from the throne. And seven Spanish angels took another angel home," they sang together.
Yugito took a deep breath before continuing. "She reached down and picked the gun up that lay smoking in his hand. She said father please forgive me but I can't make it without my man. And she knew the gun was empty and she knew she could not win. But her final prayer was answered when the rifles fired again."
"There were seven Spanish angels at the Alter of the Sun. They were praying for the lovers in the Valley of the Gun. When the battle stopped and the smoke cleared, there was thunder from the throne. And seven Spanish angels took another angel home. Yeah, there were seven Spanish angels at the alter of the Sun. They were praying for the lovers in the valley of the gun. When the battle stopped and the smoke cleared, there was thunder from the throne. And seven Spanish angels took another angel home."
Naruto took a long look at the crowd as he finished before making six clones as Yugito walked off the stage. "Thank you! Now, I'm going to finished this by announcing the next band, the singers of one of my favorite songs, Flogging Molly! So, in the words of a Marine friend of mine, 'Time to let loose! Nothing can stop us now! When the music starts kickin', you're gonna dance 'til you drop! One...Two...Oto Oto Rush!" All seven Naruto used the Kawarimi and Flogging Molly took his place.
"Wow, he really did it," the lead singer stated. "Sail away where no ball and chain can keep us from the roarin' waves, together undivided, but forever we'll be free! Sail away aboard our rig, the moon is full and so are we! Seven drunken pirates, we're the seven deadly sins!"
"Anko-chan, set sail," Naruto called up ahead to where the Morning Song was moored. He was running to the ship, being chased by a group of rabid fans again. Only this time he was laughing his head off. When he reached the end of the dock, the Morning Song twenty feet away, he jumped and caught a rope thrown to him. He swung around and landed on the side of the hull. "Ladies, you will forever remember this as the day you almost caught Captain Uzumaki Nar..." A wave hit the side of the Morning Song, soaking him to the bone. "...Uto."
He climbed up top, took off his hat, and shook the water from his hair. "You and your pranks," Sarutobi muttered.
"It's who I am, what can you do. Itachi, did you make the sale?"
"Of course. Got ten percent more than expected."
"Awesome. Anko-chan, how went the recruitment?"
"Three dozen more sailors have signed on to the to man the Defiant. She will have a full crew at next port."
"Good, good. Hakari, did you meet with the mermaids and fishmen?"
"I did. Chou says its good to here from us and Pocky said he will work with us as well as several others."
"More good news," Naruto said before walking to the railing and looking at the Defiant. He, with the help of Kisame, Zabuza, Haku, and Hakari, had stolen the design of the Truth and Reconciliation and made a new ship from it. The result, the Defiant, the fifth ship in the Konoha Mercenaries. All the ships had a steam engine now to keep her moving when the wind died. "Any word from Heero?"
"The Enterprise has been fully manned and they sail back to Morose Ilse."
"That makes six now," Naruto said with a grin. "Who is the next client by the way?"
"The Government sent us a mission request to hunt down and capture the King of the Pirates."
Naruto stretched. "Well, set sail for..." He took out his chart, looked at it, and said, "Texas, lets go get some Kiowa among our fleet. But first, bring forth the prisoner!" Yugito grinned as Jiriaya walked out with a dark skinned man taller than him, with sunglasses and a horn tattoo on his cheek. "Mister Bii, have ye any last words before we make ye walk?"
Bii Kira just put a finger in his ear, cleaned it out, and said, "Bring it, kiddo."
"Very well, extend the plank!" Motoko put a boot to it and pushed it out. "Raise it." A hat was put on a hook and put out over the water. "Get the hat, ye scurvy cur." Naruto couldn't help but laugh as he walked out on it to the end and found it was out of his reach. Taking a deep breath, he jumped up, grabbed it, and fell back to the board. He almost lost his balance but he righted himself. "Well done, well done. Yugito-chan, would you do the honors?"
"I would be happy to." She walked to the plank. "Hey Kira, this is for making me the butt of all those jokes!" She threw the release lever and the back brace for the plank dropped away, making the plank and Kira fall into the ocean.
Naruto walked to the railing at the sputtering and cursing jinchuuriki of the eight tails. "Congratulations, you are now an officer of the Konoha Mercenaries. Get your arse back aboard!" He walked over to the wheel and Hinata a kiss on the cheek. "Texas, love."
"Aye aye, captain," she said before she reached for the Eternal Log for the island. She set it in place, returned the kiss to Naruto, and spun the wheel. The ship turned and now was heading to their next destination. Naruto smirked as he took account of all those now part of the crew. Aside from himself, Gaara, and Yugito, there were three jinchuuriki aboard. Kira, Seto of the Gobi, and Roshi for the Yonbi. Two more and he would have the complete set. Speaking of Gaara, he looked up and saw him there at the crow's nest with Talon. He found himself humming a tune and said, "A pirates life for me."

"Alright, Scene 'Convincing Talon' Version 1, take 1," Foxcomm called. "Action."
"A pirates life a wonderful life, especially for me! Here, here, a buccaneer, a pirate's life for...WHOA!" One of them tripped and the others followed suit.
"Cut, cut," Foxcomm groaned. "Come on, Ashram, get this right."

"Convincing Talon, Take 2, version 2. Action."
"Why should I trust you," Talon asked Ashram and him men.
"Why, because we're your friends." The pirates started singing together. "We're your friends. We're your friends. We're your friends to the bitter end, the bitter end.
"When you're alone, you're alone, who comes around, who comes around, to pluck you up when you are down? When you are down. And when you're outside looking in who's there to open the door? That's what friends are for! Who's always eager to extend a friendly claw? That's what friends are for!
"And when your lost, in dire need, who's at your side at lightning speed? We're friends of every creature coming down the pike. You know we never met a person we didn't like!" A ball of sand hit them and bowled them over.
"I am here to take Talon back," Gaara told them.
"And...cut," Foxcomm shouted. "Good job everyone! On to the next version."

"And cut," Foxcomm called. "Thank you, Melfena, that was beautiful."
She giggled a little, "Thank you. Have a good day, Foxcomm-san." She walked off the stage.
"Okay, next is...Sylvanas Windrunner. Okay, let's get this one done in one try as well. Scene: Opening music festival, version 2, take 1. And action!"
Sylvanas took a deep breath before singing. "Anar'alah, Anar'alah belore, Sin'dorei. Shindu fallah na Sin'dorei. Anar'alah, shindu Sin'dorei. Shindu fallah na, Sin'dorei. Anar'alah belore. Shindu Sin'dorei. Shindu fallah na Sin'dorei. Anar'alah belore. Belore."
"And cut," Foxcomm said when she finished. "Hmm..."
"Well," Sylvanas asked.
"...You have a lovely voice, Sylvanas, you do. But I just don't think this will fit in this one."
"Well, this is a One Piece/Naruto crossover, not Naruto/Warcraft. How could I explain you being here?"
"How are you going to explain Melfena from Outlaw Star being here," she countered.
"...Good point. But I still don't think it will work. I do know where though. I'll make a call to a friend of mine, 1sniperwolf. He will gladly put that song in his."
Sylvanas sighed. "Freakin great, my one chance to take a vacation from Warcraft for a while gone."
"I am sorry," Foxcomm told her. "If I ever try a Naruto/Warcraft, you will be the first to know."
"You better tell me first!" At this, Foxcomm was surrounded by banshees ready to kill him.
Sweating bullets, he replied, "S-Sure... I pr-promise."

Naruto ran for the end of the dock, going over his lines. 'This is the day you almost caught Captain Uzumaki Naruto...' He should have been paying attention because he stumbled when his boot caught an uneven stone. "Whoa!" He was tackled from behind by one of the girls.
"Hey, I caught him!"
"CUT! Damn it, Naruto, pay attention!

Author's Notes. Here it is, the epilogue in all it's glory. Almost took a year to finish but it was worth it in my opinion. I'm glad to have done it. Looks like Naruto is on top of the world now. Special thanks to all those that have followed me from the beginning. Ja ne.
What are you still doing reading?
The story is over.
Fine, just a bit more.
Madara appeared on a cliff overlooking the ocean. "We pillage and plunder, rifle and loot, drink up me hearties yo ho! We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot, drink up me hearties, yo ho!" He looked around a little bit more. "We extort, we pilfer, we filch and sack, drink up me hearties yo ho! Maraud, embezzle and even high jack, drink up me hearties yo ho! Yo ho, yo ho! A pirates life for me."
"Toby, enough," Pain said before standing beside him.
"Ah, Tobi is a good boy."
"Now is not the time, Madara-sama," Kohan told him. "Itachi, Kisame, Kakuzu, and Sasori, all gone. All that is left is us and Zetsu."
Madara looked at them and back out to the water. "They can run as far as they wish. I will not be denied what is mine," he growled, his Sharigan spinning behind his mask.
