Code Geass: Lelouch of the Six Paths: Redux
Summary: What is the Power of the King compared to the Power of a God? Lelouch is going to find out. CG/Naruto X-over. Starts between R1 and R2. Lelouch x Kallen
Reminder: I do not own Code Geass or Naruto. The Rinnegan in this story will be a little different from the one in Naruto. It will be the Uzumaki clan, later Namikaze Clan Kekkei Genkai. The first stage of my new Rinnegan will be the Rinnegan's regular techniques while the second stage will be akin to the Mangekyou Sharingan. This is fanfiction so I can do whatever the fuck I wan with this and you can't stop me. If people are allowed to write Yaoi and Yuri, then I can write this. No flames plz.
If you need to look up the jutsu used or the Kekkei Genkai, please consult the Naruto Wikia.
AN: 11/24/2010- Alright, now I know you are wondering why I am re-uploading this chapter. Well, after reading over the story, I realize that I could do so much more with this. This will be a little more canon than the last version of the story. I most likely will continue the other one, but this version will also be considered part.
Chapter 1: Maelstrom
Aries Villa, Pendragon, Britannia, 2007 a.t.b.
A pair of shoes made their way across the carpeted floor of the quiet hallway in which the Fifth Imperial Consort and Empress of Britannia Marianne vi Britannia walked. An aura of calm superiority and kindness flowed off the Knight-turned-Empress as she glided towards her bedroom. She had planned on getting some sleep when she heard a voice from down the hall.
She turned around and smiled at the sight of her two children out of bed and in their sleeping attire. Her 8-year-old son Lelouch and her 5-year-old daughter Nunnally were looking up at their loving mother with expectant looks in their eyes. Suddenly, it hit her like Bismarck did when they fought. "Oh I almost forgot that I was going to tell you that story tonight. I think you are at the right age to learn of the tale Lelouch. But first I must go to my room and retrieve a few items."
The two children doggedly followed their mother as she entered her sleeping chambers and turned on the light. She opened a drawer in which she pulled out two items, which she held out of the view of Lelouch and Nunnally. Marianne then went across the hall into Lelouch's room. Nunnally sat on the bed while Lelouch went under the covers as Marianne sat down in the chair next to the bed. The raven-haired empress looked at her children's attentive expressions and chuckled slightly.
Lelouch asked, "Mother, are you going to tell us the story?"
Marianne looked at Lelouch, "Yes Lulu, I believe you are of age and mature enough to know the story."
She then looked up, gazing longingly at the ceiling, "My mother, as you know, was Japanese. What you don't know was her lineage."
Marianne took a brief glance at her children, who were staring at her intently. She took that as the cue to continue, "Well, my mother was named Kushina. Namikaze-Uzumaki Kushina. In her family, that name tended to be very common, being that my mother was the fifteenth or sixteenth female to bear that name in the Namikaze-Uzumaki Clan. Now, what you must understand is that our lineage is very, very ancient. More ancient than your father's line, and much more powerful."
"The story of the Namikaze-Uzumaki Clan could go back to a man named the Rikudou Sennin, or the Sage of the Six Paths."
"The Six Paths Sage lived during a time of great peril. A great and terrible monster known as the Juubi came to destroy the world due to being lured to our world due to the foolish actions of an empire that existed at that time that fought over a miracle mineral and caused a catastrophic war. The Sage fought the Juubi in a colossal, apocalyptic battle, in which the moon was destroyed. He eventually defeated the Juubi by separating its soul from its body and imprisoning each aspect separately. He imprisoned the body in a massive sphere of Earth which became the new moon and he imprisoned the soul and energy of the beast within himself, becoming what was known as a jinchuuriki, or power of a human sacrifice."
"The Sage's changed and reflected those of the Juubi and it became a new bloodline limit called a dôjutsu. This dôjutsu became known as the Rinnegan, or the Heavenly Samsara Eye."
"The Sage of the Six Paths traveled the known world, preaching peace for all and teaching ninjutsu. However, toward his death, he gave his two sons power. His older son was given the 'Sage's Eyes' while his younger son was given the 'Sages's body'. When asking his sons what they would do with his power, the Sage agreed with the younger's answer of bringing peace to the world through love and harmony, which contrasted the older son's answer that power would bring peace. On the verge of death, the Sage of the Six Paths feared that the Juubi would escape and be reborn, so he divided the energy, called chakra, into nine unequal portions. These portions formed into demons called the Nine Bijū or Tailed Beasts."
"Unfortunately, when the Sage named his younger son as his successor, his eldest became enraged with jealousy and attacked the younger, causing a great feud to occur. This feud continued on for generations as the descendants of the elder son, the Uchiha Clan, constantly battled the descendants of the younger, the Senju Clan. Eventually, a branch of the Senju that excelled in the art of seals became tired of the constant bickering and, with the blessings of their clan mates, split off and formed a new clan off named the Uzumaki Clan."
"However, the story of the one who truly was the greatest Uzumaki begins after the formation of the five major ninja villages: Konohagakure, Sunagakure, Kirigakure, Kumogakure, and Iwagakure. The Nine Tailed Demon Fox, or Kyūbi no Yōko, attacked the village of Konoha. In order to defeat the creature, the Kage of the village, whom was the Yondaime (Fourth) Hokage, summoned the God of Death to seal the beast within his own son, Naruto. Thus Namikaze-Uzumaki Naruto, the heir of the Namikaze Clan and the Uzumaki Clan (the Namikaze were descended from the Uzumaki) became the host of the Kyūbi. He then later activated his bloodline and received the Rinnegan and he also became a Toad Sage. After defeating many powerful enemies, he became the Rokudaime (Sixth) Hokage of Konohagakure and for the sake of peace, conquered the known world. He became the first Emperor of the Elemental Empire and he ruled wisely and fairly. He married many wives and fathered many children and they became the heads of their own clans save for the eldest child, who kept the name. Time passed by as many generations passed before a man named Namikaze-Uzumaki Kamuyamato became Iwarebiko Kamuyamato a.k.a. Emperor Jimmu, the first Emperor of Japan. His third born, a son, kept the Namikaze-Uzumaki name and they descended into the shadows, keeping the ancient shinobi ways and collecting scrolls and other ninja artifacts. They became guardians of a great library of techniques and treasures that include many of the treasures that are considered to be lost to time."
"Mother, where is the library?" Lelouch interrupted.
Marianne chuckled, "The location of the library is in Japan. However, I will not tell you where the library is because you will know when the time is right."
She laughed at Lelouch's pout as she continued with the story, "The Namikaze-Uzumaki continued to protect the Emperor as a noble family and protected Japan secretly and quietly, as it is the Namikaze way. We swore an oath to protect the Land of the Rising Sun and I still hold true to that oath as one of the last of the clan. In time, you will need to decide if you would follow through on that oath Lelouch for it is our obligation, our promise. The Namikaze-Uzumaki creed to protect those who you call your precious people is one that is a difficult task for one. I expect you to follow that creed, that 'nindo' that was established by Namikaze-Uzumaki Naruto, the greatest of our clan. In time, I hope that you will be as great, if not greater than him, my son. Now it's time for bed. You have a big day tomorrow for we are going to start training!"
Lelouch groaned as he pulled the covers up. Before he could drift off to sleep, Marianne placed a necklace on Lelouch's neck. He looked down and saw a green crystal on a long cord. "Lelouch, that necklace has been passed down in my family since Naruto. It was said that it was the physical embodiment of the will to protect, the fabled 'Will of Fire'. I hope that once more it shall glow with that will one more time. Keep it close and keep it safe for it is a treasure beyond all treasures. Now good night, my sweet prince."
Marianne kissed her son's forehead as he drifted to sleep. After turning the light off and closing the door, a voice spoke, "You know that Charles and V.V. have every intention to follow through with the Ragnorök Connection. Why are you hesitating?"
The raven-haired empress turned to the green-tressed witch standing next to her. "I'm beginning to have doubts over whether the world will accept the plan or reject it violently. From looking back to the past, people tend not to like plans like ours."
"You speak of Uchiha Madara's Moon's Eye Plan?" C.C. inquired.
"Yes. Do not forget it was basically the same plan and the world rejected quite vociferously. Maybe we are moving too fast."
"Do not forget that was millennia ago."
Marianne smiled sadly, "Maybe. But do not forget people were as civilized then as they are now. Possibly they were even more civilized then than now. I think it will have the same outcome."
C.C. stared at her confidant for a second, watching the calm, somber visage of the Empress. "Hmm. You may have a point as you probably are more knowledgeable of that time period then I am, but do you really think that Charles and V.V. will agree with your sentiment?"
Marianne sighed, "Charles might see my point, but that all depends on how devoted he is to the plan. I think I may be able to convince him to reconsider. However, V.V. is a lost cause. He will not see reason and I know that he will want to kill me more than he does now if I make the attempt to dissuade Charles."
"So what will you do?"
"Keep my children safe and keep going through with the plan, despite my doubts. I just hope that they do not become caught up in this. There is so much hanging on them and they don't even know it."
"You think Lelouch is the next child of prophecy? Isn't it a little early to be thinking that Marianne?" C.C. smirked.
Marianne smiled, "No. I just know he is though. I know that he will lead the world into a new era of peace and understanding, for it is his destiny after all."
Imperial Throne Room, Pendragon, 2017 a.t.b.
The once innocent prince had become one of the Britannian Empire's most successful adversaries. However, it seemed as if Zero's existence would finally come to an end at the hands of Emperor Charles Zi Britannia's Geass.
Charles spread out his cape, Geass glowing brightly in his eyes, and said, "Charles Zi Britannia engraves upon you false memories of a false life!"
As the Geass symbols entered the castaway prince's eyes, time began to stand still. Lelouch, the only one still somewhat moving, was perplexed as to why his memories were not at that moment being rewritten and his live once again taken away by Charles, until he heard a voice speak to him.
"You didn't think that you would shirk your responsibilities that easily, did you Lelouch?"
The voice, undoubtedly male, was filled with mirth and ageless wisdom. Lelouch turned towards the source of the voice and his eyes widened as he came into eye contact with deep cerulean eyes. Unkempt sun-kissed blond spiky hair composed of the man's crown as his elongated canines gleamed in his foxy smirk. Looking at the kanji on the back of man's trench coat, Lelouch realized who he was.
Lelouch stammered, "This-this can't be possible."
Naruto's smirk widened and closed his eyes, coupled with his whisker marks, it made the Rokudaime Hokage look even more fox-like. "Are you sure about that? I mean, I am standing right in front of you."
The prince deadpanned, "Really? I haven't noticed."
Lelouch continued, "So why are you here?"
"Because it's time you become what you were born to be. A revolutionary. A savior. An Emperor." Naruto answered.
"Emperor? Savior? Revolutionary? With the sins I have committed? Don't be ridiculous. I know I have Geass, but just exactly how am I going to free the world and become the new emperor by enslaving everyone in the world?" Lelouch clenched his fists as he began to become angry.
Naruto, no longer wearing the smirk, replied, "Correction, you no longer have Geass. I canceled your contract with C.C."
Lelouch's eyes once again widened then narrowed before he grit his teeth. "You took away my Geass? Then just how do you expect me to do anything without it!"
The smirk returned to Naruto's face before he began to snicker. The snicker became a chuckle until it built up to full laughter. Lelouch, by this time was enraged and about to tackle Naruto to the ground when the shinobi handed Lelouch a mirror. "Before you kill me, maybe you should take a look at your reflection in the mirror, hot shot."
Confused, the straightjacket wearing prince looked into the mirror and was shocked by what he saw. His eyes were a shade of grey with concentric circles rippling out from the pupils. He looked back at Naruto, whose eyes reflected that of Lelouch's and asked, "What is the Power of the King compared to the Power of a God?"
"This is the…"
"Rinnegan. Yes it is. You have a destiny, Lelouch. Your destiny is to save this world from those who wish to impose their will on it. You are the new Child of Prophecy. To save the world, you must once again become the savior."
Lelouch's eyes became to tear, "Why me? How can I save the world when all I have cause was pain? How can I be a messiah if I have sinned?"
Naruto smiled sadly, "Lelouch, not all of those sins are yours, but they are of those who wish to undermine you."
"What do you mean?" Lelouch asked, with an almost hopeful tone.
"There is a place where you will get all of your answers. Now I believe our time is coming to an end. You've got to fake memory loss now. I will see you again soon." Naruto began to fade as time began to slowly restart. However, before fading into oblivion, Naruto added, "Before I fade, remember that your sins are not your own, so get your ass in gear, Yogen no Ko."
As time once again resumed, the world began to dim as Lelouch fell into blissful unconsciousness.
Post Script- By the way, I believed Euphemia's massacre was way too convenient. No, Lelouch does not lose his memory, but he will hide that fact. No, Nunnally does not have the Rinnegan. No one in this story other than Lelouch will. However, Lelouch will realize that the meeting with Naruto left more than just the Rinnegan and information. Next Chapter is called Child of Prophecy, in which Lelouch brings a can of shinobi-brand grade A whoop ass to the Geass Directorate. Yes he will be Super!Lelouch. Dude, he's going against an empire that rules a third of the world. He's going to need all the power he can get.
Peace Out FOO'S!
