Third Fang, many numerous authors, and reviewers have given me permission to use certain Jutsu, themes, dialogues, and other such things which will be seen in this series. I will be listing and crediting authors whose inspiration for material begins/appears in subsequent story or chapter. Many homages will be paid to some of the greatest writers on this site and as well as Cameos or shout-outs as well. I want to think everyone who has been a long time fan of my stories and my series since conception. With that said I hope you guys enjoy this final revival/rewrite of my series and enjoy this new direction I am taking it in. Also this story along with many characters will be a lot darker then the previous series and there will be a heavier use of dark themes along with numerous added scenes and things that branch away from Canon.
For each story I work on I will be adding the new chapters after the old ones if there is a significant difference then the old one. Once I get up to the point to the story where the old one stopped at I will delete the older chapters and the new ones will take their place, but I will be leaving up the old chapters for people to enjoy.
As you all know and see there is always a vast improvement from my old versions to my new versions. This time I am not only fixing mistakes, but I'm doing something known as Adaption Expansion and try to go on and give depth that's only been seen by writers like Mistresswinyoll and her Rosario + Vampire stories and the likes. Now I know some of you are disappointed and hate when I do this, but I need to completely reevaulate and add some depth to my changes and reasons as well as balance out my original characters.
So with that, I will begin my getting out the new origin story 'New Origin' which will completely change and redefine Naruto's back story we'll actually get to see more of the villains and enemies and show why those on the antagonist side are a threat, and we actually get to see those OCs you've all been giving me.
I will also be bringing back in a capacity the main characters for crossover I don't have and give them larger roles and alter the plots more. I will be making the plots mine instead of following too close to canon like I usually do and I know that you will all enjoy it. With that said please be patient while I finish writing up New Origin the first chapter.
Traveling down the dark lit street was a young man in his twenties with mocha colored skin with shoulder length dark violet haired and slitted, golden cat like eyes. He was wearing a sleeveless violet haori and black Hakama pants with long white socks and black tennis shoes. He was sweating heavily with a black eye, numerous cuts, on his face and a bruise on his left cheek. He was panting quite heavily but was speeding along with above human speeds.
"Kill the Demon!"
"You'll pay for what you did to my family!"
"Make him pay for the death of our precious Yondaime!"
''Damnit...he's already at his old tricks.'' the dark skinned man murmured. If those images he gotten were correct then the boy the voices were chasing was Uzumaki Naruto. He would be a young, blond haired boy with cerulean blue eyes and whiskers. 'Damnit, Konohagakure no Sato is bigger then those memories suggested.' he thought as he leaped over the building and dropped down between a small frightened child and a group of armed individuals made up of armed civilians and shinobi.
His hands flickered with lightning as he aimed it at the crowd and without waiting for a response he blasted them with enough power to send them all flying, skin covered with slight burns and patches of their clothing destroyed. ''You? Rather foolish of you to reveal yourself now K Kuiinshi.'' the only person standing from the attack was a dark haired young man with orange skin, green eyes, and looked unearthly skinny with a fowl aura. ''It's time I begin what I...'' suddenly a blade plunged through the back of the person's neck and through his throat. ''H-How?'' he somehow managed to speak despite the injury. ''No one is...'' the light went out of his eyes as his head hung forward. With a heave the person behind him kicked the now dead manipulator off the blade as his body hit the ground with a thud as a trail of blood seeped out from the ground.
''I've seen the future. I already knew your neck is your weak spot.'' K said as he went over to the body and searched it until he was able to recover the item he was looking for. A knife made out of pure crystal and one of the treasures from his family. ''Ojii-sama I had it handled.'' K said as he turned to a man in his seventies wearing black robes with chain mail body armor underneath.
''Yeah..those bruises on your face said otherwise.'' the old man said dismissively as they turned their attention to the frightened and trembling child. ''This is the boy?'' he asked as K nodded.
''Yeah, somehow and some way things have changed.'' he said as he went over to the boy who backed away and shielded himself. ''Don't worry Naruto. I won't hurt you.''
''W-Who are you?'' the young boy asked as the dark skinned man smile.
''A friend...consider me your Onii-sama alright.'' the guy said as he placed his hand on top of the kid's head only for another one of those images from a long time ago to hit him.
''Where...where am I?'' The figure asked as he found his voice. In the white space he found himself wearing this strange and loose fitting white robe.
''Empty space...unknown...the void...it has many names. Doesn't matter as long as it serves it purpose.''
The blond eyes followed the voice to it's origin. Sitting not to far away was a man he had never seen before. He had dark skin, tan in a shade that reminded him of fellow jinchuuriki Kirabi. His build was similar, albeit the proportions of his muscles were smaller and he was a bit shorter. Though his eyes were clear, cat-like, golden, and soul shredding. His hair was dark, it was hard to describe because of the light. For a moment it looked raven color and the next it was dark deep violet. Though the figure was wearing clothes he was unfamiliar with.
''Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze. You're the one I hope...I mean you could be if you choose. quite frankly I could pick worse.''
''Who are you? And how do you know my name?''
''I am...a man who has been around since most of the current deity and gods were mere toddlers and thoughts. I go by many names and have inspired many in my life times. You can call me Kuiinshin...it's not an actual name with the only language you have access to currently; The closet would actually be to a name isn't spelled with an N, but meh, if you pick up a lost language you'll get the meaning in time. I am...the Last of the Tentai. By that I mean the last of those currently alive and who have the right to bear the name. Others are missing, a.k.a. unknown or traitors who have been cast out of the family. I'm hoping we can bring that number up by one.''
''You still haven't answered my question? Who are you? Where am I? And what's going on?''
''I am...your brother from a previous life,'' The man said as he waved his finger and a globe materialized in his hand. It was made of pure crystal that reflected an image. The person had similar features to Naruto, but was dark with a lighter and more colorful shade of hair. ''Orios...that was your name. Pronounced, Oh-Rie-Ohs. Just like how my name is pronounced Ku-ween-shii...and how we are related. It's the whole reincarnation cycle, like Phoenixes. That's how I found you and the others.''
''Others? I thought you said the others are missing? Not that I'm buying what your saying? For all I know you could be some delusional psycho.''
The man raised a finger and smirked,''But do you not feel it. Already you are changing...'' The man started as he took something unfamiliar to the blond from his pants pocket. He put it in his mouth and pulled out a match and lit it. He then inhaled and puff out smoke. ''That simpleton way of thinking from this false life was altered when I awakened the fragment. By what I mean is you are a fragment of Orios. You are just one of many fragments I found. The other fragments were idolized fools, annoyingly enough idiot heroes like you appear to be and I have to do some collecting so to say. Though the fact you had a dark side...I believe you are the one. The one who will become The Original so to say. I can help you find the answer to who you really are. Give you the chance to change your destiny, the destiny of others and to give you a chance to get revenge for what happened to our family.''
''Yes...mother...father...everyone slaughtered like animals. Slaughter by beings who are known as deities, gods of other religions worshiped like Kings and Queens. Becoming arrogant and ruthless and abusing the people who worship them. Sitting back and watching as wars are fought and lives are wasting without most of them lifting a finger to stop it. Merely enjoying it like some sick form of entertainment.''
''Revenge begits nothing more then hatred. You've come to the wrong guy as nothing good comes from hatred.''
''Do you deny the very nature that you are? Do you deny the hand of the one offering you answers? Power? Everything? All I want is my own happiness and the ones who unjustly killed our family to elevate themselves is to die. To restore our family as well...without the Tentai everything will be lost. Our mother set before a series of events that will occur if certain events don't happen. If the Tentai, by blood or by honoary status aren't restored by a certain date of our calendar then the various universes will collapse.
She was the originator of this existence and the one before it. 'Absolute Destruction' or better yet Chaos was her power as our father had the power of absolute creation. Only there youngest son, Orios had the perfect blend of power. Prophesied to bring an old to what we all know. You see how that can be interpreted. There target was you Orios. Our family was slaughtered because they wanted to get to you.''
''And what can I do?'' Naruto snapped, ''You keep telling me I'm this Orios, but how can I trust your word? How do I know your not one of those guys from this supposed other side, those deities trying to trick me?''
Kuiinshi smirked, his eyes twinkling,''You're displaying some measure of intelligence above and beyond combat of this identity. Good...but you just have to trust me Orios. After all...Minato and Kushina...were the reincarnation of our mother and father.'' The man explained as shock overcame Naruto.
''There sacrifices including there core soul were given up to save us. One life for the next. Mother gave her life to save you. Her precious boy. Ready to sacrifice herself to call down oblivion on our aggressions; those that seem familiar? Father stopped her because he had fate you would make the right choices and save the world, the lives he helped create. Sound familiar? Mother was willingly to give up everything, the lives of all other life and even her own chance to see you, to hold you again if it meant keeping you safe.
Your life more then any other was on the line. That was why, we, as a family stood together. The others could have fled, saved themselves, but they choose to die. Even with your dual nature; the fact a great evil was in you that believed in the good in you. They believed you would not become the blinded by light fools and become a Templar or lawful good fulls running around and letting there enemies live to only kill innocents over and over again. That you would be the one to truly find the one good absolution. The lack of absolution as all forms of absolutions are evil so without absolution one can find good. I didn't think I would find you though. While the fragments all were potential vessels only the one with a dark side like yours could be the real deal. It was hard to tell seeing as like you all the others were orphans like you caught in a game by fate.''
''How can you be sure it's me? I mean what makes me so different?''
''I'll admit like this world other gods have mettled in your world like they have others, but then I noticed something; the one thing that set the events happened here apart and why you just might be the one. Uchiha Madara...''
''Madara? What does he have to do with this?''
''Don't you find it suspect that this man was able to do everything he was able to do? Hide himself for so long and pull of the planning he was able to do? I'll admit I have seen Chessmasters do more impressive things in the past, but for him to be able to put together the clues and try to recreate something so far in the past. There is usually an outside source, where even at the end of it all and the...let's go with heroes...even when the heroes triumph and save the world the source usually continues the cycle elsewhere. The corrupted spirit advisers going to all that trouble just to give up on a world? Not likely so I started tracking their movements. It was then I realized some time ago there efforts were focused on eliminating a certain profile. A certain individual profile that someone like you would fit. Meaning that someone long ago set the steps to orchestrate our families demise. And if I'm write they helped Uchiha Madara behind the ease, hoping to kill you, Minato Namikaze, and Kushina Uzumaki and were willingly to sacrifice this entire planet full fo people if it met there goals. And it wouldn't be the first time, in many cases this being or beings and or even his/her and the underlings have succeeded.''
''Everyone...the elemental nations...all that suffering...all that pain? An entire planet sacrificed just to kill me?''
''Yeah...most likely by some deity who wanted to keep his position of God in another universe. If the Tentai are restored then we'll have the power to destroy the oppressive monsters wreaking havoc. Many willingly to sacrifice worlds and countless lives not to lose their position. As a result several species our family created have created have gone extinct. This is why I'm asking you...please help me Orios, no Naruto. We can help each other, you can find the truth and get to learn about our family, and maybe I'll be able to close my eyes once and not let the guilt overtake me. I know I haven't given you reasons to trust my word. It's suspect but it's nagging at the back of your head isn't it? Just know our heart might be tempted to give in to darkness at times or even it will have to give in if you want to survive. Because I can't keep fighting this fight alone. Not forever...if I fail...then everyone dies.'' The man finished as a solemn expression crossed his face.
''Don't you mean if we fail?'' The blond asked placing his hand on the man's shoulder. ''I...want to...know...I need to believe you. I always felt that there was something missing. Even if I want to be selfish and ignore it. Even if my world found peace. What kind of man would I be if I ignored that there are others suffering and I could have helped.''
''You might loose sight of yourself. You might change and you could even become a complete monster, in fact it's almost guaranteed. Are you sure you want to do this?''
''I have to do this...if I don't put the past to rest then there is no future for me.''
Kuiinshi nodded and held up the crystal. ''Once you grasp this crystal and acknowledge who you once were there is no turning back. The old Uzumaki Naruto will no longer exist. You will have to listen and do as I say at times even if it goes against your moral code such as killing. Because those beings who wanted you dead won't hesitate. They also won't hesitate to come back and destroy this world out of sick and twisted sense of cruelty. The very fact that Madara is dead pretty much guarantees they were going to anyway.''
''But...if you're here...it won't happen right?''
''As long as you want this world protected. They would have to go through me because if this world is a home to a Tentai then it is a home to all Tentai.''
''Then...I accept...'' Naruto said as he placed a hand on his crystal.
''Welcome to your celestial rebirth...Naruto Tentai.''
Those were the last words Naruto feel before he became light headed and his consciousness faded into nothing. The old Uzumaki Naruto was no more. Now there would only be Naruto Tentai.
The memory faded as soon as it came. Kuiinshi clutched his head as pain surged through it. The past, the past of his former self when he was the only survivor, but that was no longer the case. Even though with that knowledge not much had changed. In fact even if he was not the only survivor of the family he didn't have the resources, the power, or the allies his past self had because of his actions that changed everything. In trying to change reality he had caused numerous setbacks that caused more harm then good.
''W-Why are you helping me?'' the boy asked as his hair was ruffled.
''Because I don't hate you. Me and that really old Ojii-san...'' K was interrupted as the old man materialized a cane and cracked him in the back of the head with it. ''...are going to help you. Because family have to stick together.''
''F-Family...you mean...'' the boy trailed off as his eyes began to water.
''We'll explain it all in time kid, but you have to come with us to speak to the Hokage. We have things we need to prepare for.'' he said as he hoisted up the boy and placed him on the shoulder. The men paid no attention to the whispers or glares that the citizens were giving them as they appeared out of nowhere in front of the Hokage Tower. The large and majestic building was the very epic center of the village and could be seen from the outer reaches of the village.
''Excuse me secretary-san is the Hokage busy?''
The secretary had looked up from her work and was surprised by the appearance of the two men with Uzumaki Naruto. She was sure tensions between Kumo and Konoha were quite high so for two men whose aura radiated that of a warrior. ''H-He is busy signing important documents. I can schedule a meeting if you wish,'' the young woman stammered as she looked at everywhere but their faces. Many impressions of Kumo was a result of the rather loud and rowdy Raikages which seemed to be a trait, like the Mizukages mysterious nature or the Hokages pension for character and self sacrifice for the good of the village.
''Yeah...no thanks.'' Kuiinshi said as he went through the door.
''You're such an impatient little dick-head.'' the old man said with a sigh of embarrassment.
''Hey there Hiruzen remember me!'' the grinning dark skinned man said as the pipe fell out of the mouth of the aged Hokage. He was left speechless as the last time he saw the young man he had mysteriously appeared and challenged his team to a drinking competition. Never had he seen a person drink so much alcohol and be seemingly unaffected. And that same young man was standing before him without so much as a wrinkle. Somewhere down the line someone in his ancestry must have been an Uzumaki.
''You...K right?'' he studied the face of the man and concluded this was in fact the same young man. Hiruzen Sarutobi prided himself on many things. One being the God of Shinobi and knowing and performing over 1,000 Jutsu; in fact out of those thousand included the knowledge of every single jutsu in Konoha. The Hokage then took notice of the sleeping form of Naruto who was exhausted from the night's previous events and sighed. ''Again?'' he didn't know how or why, but the past few days the citizens of Konoha had been rather violent towards Naruto as of late. It used to be that they mostly avoided and ignored the boy, but as if some strange force took a hold and didn't care about his authority at all they went as far as to try and kill him.
''Hiruzen Sarutobi there are things at work that places this entire world in danger.'' the old man said as he stamped his mahogany cane on the ground.
''Tavarion Tentai, it has been some time.'' the Hokage greeted the dark skinned elder.
''I'm afraid we wouldn't be seeing each other again if things weren't dire.'' he said with a grave sigh. ''The majority of the Tentais have been wiped out.'' he stated as Hiruzen's eyes widened. ''My idiot grandson was given visions of a dark future. A future where he teamed up with the Uzumaki boy who at the time was the reincarnation of my other grand son, but when you toy with fate you alter reality itself. Now we are on the losing side and our advantages few. So few have no choice but to reveal our base in a world where we know are safe for the time being.''
''Not to mention us survivors were cursed with a majority of our powers sealed for the time being. Only the blood of an awakened Tentai untainted can cure us and in this time Naruto here is our descendant. We're going to need his help like he is going to need ours. A soldier of darkness by the name of Tobi has infiltrated your world and has plans to infiltrate this world and I can tell you now the Jinchuuriki are the key.'' as K continued the rest of his explanation Hiruzen's face grew grim. Weighing the information he received he contemplated everything before asking.
''What are your plans now? What do you plan on doing with Naruto for now?'' despite his rather limited encounters with the Tentai he knew they were good people. It was one of the Tentai whom the Sage of Six Paths and the Senjuu clan descended from. Named after mother Gaia she was blessed with the power of nature and life.
''Adopt and train the boy.'' Tavarion answered with complete certainty. ''I'm letting you know now Hiruzen we will kill anyone who gets in our way whether they are from Konoha or not so keep your citizens and council in place. We don't have time for the foolishness or silly whims of human fear or such. Nearly all the realms are in the danger and nothing will stop us from stamping out those traitors and our enemies.'' he said as Hiruzen nodded.
His hopes for eternal peace looked like they were about to be shattered meaning it was time for him to get into that old mind set of his during the time for war. ''Neko! Horse!'' The Hokage commanded as two shinobi clad in black pants, top, grey vests, with black gloves and arm protectors. Both were wearing white masks with marks but one with the facial feature of a cat and the other a horse.
''You called for us Hokage-sama?'' they asked as they respectively knealed to their Kage.
''I have a mission for both of you. Neko, I want you to head to the borders of Rice Country. Jiraiya's last confirmed report has him in that location. Horse, retrieve Danzo, Homura, and Koharu at once and tell them to meet me here immediately. It is not open up to discussion. Failure to heed my summons will be treated as treasonous.''
While the ANBU were trained to be cold hearted soldiers that took on the most violate of missions they were still human, but seeing their peaceful and grand fatherly Hokage act so uncharacteristically cold after over a decade of peace was unsettling. ''Of course Hokage-sama!'' they said as they both disappeared in a shushin.
''Glad to see that fire hasn't died down in your old age,'' Tavarion said as he took his right hand to massage his wrinkled left hand.
''One does not become Hokage and maintain their position by being soft,'' Hiruzen countered with a sigh and massaged his forehead. ''But this man, this Tobi...he not only cost the lives of sons, daughter, mothers, and fathers but he also took my wife Biwako away from me. I no longer wish for people to experience that pain because of a madmen's lust for power. I can only hope that this time around whatever your plans are it leads to a better feature.''
''So do I Hokage-san,'' K remarked as he closed his eyes and think back to all the lives that were lost. ''So do I...''
Third Fang and Sarah1281 are the two people that come to mind who I suggest you all check out their stories, fucking amazing and funny.
For those of you who have seen/played Mortal Kombat 9 you're aware of what I just did. I completely changed numerous elements of the past series. K is no longer the last of the Tentai and is one of the survivors. Naruto is no longer his brother, but a descendant of the family line along with many others and is only being made a chosen one by convenience and not by prophecy not to mention the situation with Genesis is pretty bad because choices to make a better future lead to a darker time line where many of Genesis allies either weren't reachable or are dead as a result. As such I will use flashbacks as callbacks to the previous timeline/version of the story to see how different things are.
Tobi and many other villains from series are being backed by the main antagonists of this series and will be more powerful/prepared then their canon counterparts in numerous stories.
Naruto's upbringing and such of course will be different from canon so he will be different because of this so if you want Canon Naruto go read the manga. With that said I hope you guys enjoy this new re-endition.
Also I changed Kuiinshi's actual name. His grand father now uses the name Tavarion and his new name and the other survivors will be touched upon later.
