Naruto: Rise of the Emperor Revised
A Naruto Fanfiction
Original Story 'Naruto: Emperor's Dawn' by ChrisM2011
By Snafu the Great

Disclaimer: Naruto belongs to Kishimoto. Now, when I did Two on Two, I said that fanfic would be my only Naruto fanfic. But this fanfic was so damn good and at the time the author was not updating as much, and with his permission, decided to write this as a alternative piece to his story. Originally, I had the first three chapters written out, but after how I saw how much it was looking like ChrisM2011's version in some cases, so I decided to start from scratch (Chapter 2 is still mostly intact). Rather than have Hinata defect from the Leaf mid-story, she is with Naruto from the start. How is explained.

Also, the major twists I had in the original story still apply - Nagato is not of the Uzumaki clan, but rather Yahiko. And as you read, the Akatsuki invade Suna, rather than Konoha. Second, Sakura and most of the Hyuuga are hostile (haven't decided what to do with Neji, but Hiashi and Hanabi are definitely hostile).

About the Western Empire: Picture the Galbadian and Centra Continents (with islands) from Final Fantasy 8 and you got the Western Empire. The north continent is known as the Northern Region (with the city of Kimon as the Imperial Capital) and the south continent known as the Southern Region. Originally, I thought about using a much bigger landmass, but decided against it. I wanted the Unified West to be much more compact.

UPDATE: All of the grammar has been corrected.

This also leads to several confrontations with Konoha ninja. Rescues renegade Akatsuki founder Yahiko and the deposed Amekage Konan from Nagato, who later serve as his part of his Elite Guards. When the Akatsuki resumes their efforts to capture the jinchuuriki, he tracks down the majority of the jinchuuriki (Roshi, Han, Utakata and Fu) and protects them from the Akatsuki by offering them asylum within the Empire.
