Story Start- Adopted from Shimo Ino
Outside of Konoha a massive beam of light engulfed a large figure followed by shooting into the air. The light show filled the sky with lightning along with a beacon that wouldn't easily be seen by the human eye. Nine figures of the otherworldly sort filled the sky;
One misloved Raccoon looked up at the nearing light.
One young Cat watched as the beacon called to her.
One Turtle adolescent ignored his prey as something lit the sky.
One caged Bird monkey from his perch as gold lit up the heavens.
One elder Dolphin Horse traveled through the forest and to the beacon.
One Slug looked out from his cave and toward glow.
One soaring Insect looked down towards where the flare blazed.
One rampging Ushi-Oni turned his eyes to the unseen shimmer.
One Fox sent the light.
All the Pieces Gather. They know that they were wanted. They set off.
As Naruto stepped out of the light, his elder form shone. His blond hair had grown long and was tied loosely and he wore a orange tang top with a black vest, black pants with many orange lines going across and black combat boots. His eyes were crystalline blue with a red cresent and he had a tatoo of the kanji 'Fox' on his arm. He had also become more fox-like as he had claws, sharp canines, fox ears and a tail.
After Naruto was done, he sat in the small clearing that was home to his make shift camp. 'Well Kuubi-nii-san, how long do ya think it will take them to get here?' He poked lazily at a piece of deer that had wandered into his clearing.
Depends. All the other Jinchuuriki n and their Bijuu have retained their memories just like you. With that I expect the Gaara should be here within the hour.
'Good ol' Gaara!' Naruto thought happily. He always had a friend in Gaara since he had given him a reason to live. 'With the others coming, I should get some more food, ne?'
True, and hopefully they'll want to talk it out with you.
Naruto frowned. 'What do ya mean by that? I cant have ruined their lives that bad. Hell! I gave most of them a new life and a new chance at living!' In his old life nearly all the Biju had been captured and the Akatsuki were on the verge of taking him as well. Then the Sound joined the fry.
Kyuubi growled. True.
A small chakra flare drew his attention as a young Gaara, gourd and all, appeared into his clearing. "N-Naruto?" He stammered looking at the older blond.
Naruto let off a foxy grin as he motioned for Gaara to sit. "There ya are! Trust you saw my beacon?"
He merely nodded still staring as the blond passed him a piece of deer."How are you...that age?" He asked as Naruto comically choked on a piece of meat.
"What do-oh! You mean my form!" He replied as he pointed to himself."A special jutsu!" He answered grinning maniacally. "All the other Jinchuuriki will probably arrive in their true age form as well, so I'll teach it to you."
As he started putting his hands together, Gaara shook his head. "No..."
"Hun? Hey! Why not? I finally got in a mood to teach!"
Gaara stared at the flames for a moment then looked up with something Naruto hadn't seen in a long time. Hope. "I...I want to have another childhood...not...like my old one." he stammered, with that impassive face of his, but on the inside he was crying, very slightly. starting to cry.
Naruto pulled him into a hug. "Its okay. I will never let that happen." Then he whispered into Gaara's hair. "Not this time."
An amused voice snapped them out of their moment as a person came into their clearing. "Well, well I never thought I'd meet you again Naruto. Not after I died." A woman with mint green hair, and sparkling orange made herself known. She also a slight beetle like horn sticking out of her head from her hair and six colorful wings spreading from her back. She was wearing a white top with a white apron skirt over shorts and fish net leggings with long white armlets and blue sandals.
"Fu!" Naruto yelled happily as he grabbed her and swung her into a big hug. "I didn't think that you'd be here so soon!" Noticing Gaara's confusion he introduced them. "Gaara this is Fu Shimo, bearer of Chomei the Nanbi. "
She bended down and smiled at him full of warmth."Its nice to meet you Gaara-san. Thank you for taking care of Naruto for so long!"
"Hey, hey," Naruto started with an annoyed look on his face. "What the hell do ya mean take care of me? I was taking care of him!"
"Oh ya were, were ya?" Fu asked grabbing him in a headlock.
"Ah-ah! Hey Fu-chan?" he asked after she released him from the headlock and sat down to the deer. "How long do ya think it will take the others to get here? Hours? Days?"
She laughed slightly as her eyes looked towards the moon. "Not too long. They all want to meet the most powerful jinchuuriki after all."
Gaara then realized there were things that needed to be taken into consideration. . What was Naruto planning then, bringing them together? "What are you planning?" he asked unable to keep the eagerness and question out of his voice.
Naruto smiled softly looking out into the forest. "A village." He stated in a quiet voice. "Not just for us jinchuuriki, we who have the pure souls of true guardians, but... " His voice started to break. "In my short twenty years of life I have met too many people that have deserved so much more in their lives. It's disgusting." He suddenly growled out. "So many selfish actions and behaviors have corruded how great this village once was. And not just this village but nearly all the villages. There are far too many indecent mixed in with the deserving. Its too late to salvage what has already been corrupted. The only choice we have is to start over.''
Both Fu and Gaara were silent. Then knew, and it was high time that Naruto ranted. He was like that, he could talk for hours and you would learn only the minimal about him. He would also listen to you for hours as well. Years of being ignored only fueled those traits.
''Then we have to take time and care to sort out those who are worthy. Find those who are precious and on the promise day we make that move. When you are ready let us know." She pointed to Konoha. "There is your first step. Whether it is good or bad, is no matter. We will wait in our villages, until the promise day.''
My first step. He thought slowly understanding the words. Naruto nodded, not trusting his voice. How many more are needed? He thought as he turned his attention towards the village. He smiled. I wonder.
