I wrote this in about thirty minutes while watching some New Years Eve thing…

"10. 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Happy New Year!" The cry resounded throughout the world as the New Year was celebrated…

Akatsuki Base

The members were avoiding standing too close to each other, least that they could be forced into kissing each other. However, Konan was standing next to Pein watching the small TV they had brought in for the occasion. As the clock struck zero, she leaned over and kissed him, before blushing and looking at where Tobi was blowing a kiss at Itachi who was trying to hide behind Sasori who was fending off Deidara, who was trying to give him a kiss. 'My boys' she thought as she watched her small family.


The Konoha Twelve, the jounin-senseis, Tsunade and Jiraya were standing in a room in the Uchiha compound that Sasuke had unwillingly donated for the occasion. There was a TV in the corner that everyone was glued to. Ino and Sakura had both tried to get near Sasuke but as they waited for the ball to drop, he had switched with Shikamaru. As the ball hit, Ino quickly turned to face the person she thought was Sasuke and quickly kissed him on the cheek, before starting to yell as she realized it was Shikamaru. Sakura who had recognized the person in time turned to her other side to find Lee. "My beautiful Sakura it is my honor to be your new year's kiss." She rolled her eyes and beckoned to him, and he kissed her cheek. Ten Ten and Neji shared a quick kiss as they had foreseen this and stood in a corner with just the two of them, so they were not forced to kiss someone. After all as 'just friends' they could share a quick kiss on New Year's without any awkwardness, right. Naruto had somehow ended up next to Hinata who blushed heavily at realizing her crush would kiss her. He smiled a foxy grin at her and leaned in and then… she fainted before his lips touched her cheek.

Kurenai and Asuma shared a brief kiss and then Kurenai punched Kakashi who had kissed his copy of Icha Icha Paradise. Jiraya had kissed Tsunade who resisted punching him- until he groped her, she punched him into Sasuke, and they had a repeat of the narusasu incident from the Academy. Ino and Sakura proceeded to beat him up for that.

It might have been hectic, but everyone had had a great New Year.
