Hello readers! Now, before you try and kill me and say that I should be working on my other stories... I am! I just have this weird desire to do timetravel and it WILL NOT GO AWAY! So I must get it out of my system! Hope you enjoy the prologue! Please review!

"Hokage-sama! You cannot be serious!" Shikamaru yelled at the man.

The Rokudaime's long blonde hair that hung around his shoulders swayed as he nodded his head.

His cerulean eyes held Shikamaru's dark eyes. "I am serious Shikamaru. My question is: will you accept this mission?" Shikamaru's eyes narrowed slightly before he nodded his head.

"Fine. But Naruto are you sure?" He whispered.

Naruto laughed humourlessly and gestured to the ruins of Konoha behind them. "Am I sure I want this to never happen? Of course." He said with a small smile.

"Hokage-sama the past is dangerous to tamper with. More bad can come from good." Shikamaru reminded him once more. The twenty-three year old had made up his mind though.

Naruto nodded. "I have faith in you though to change it for the better. Remember that once you leave this timeline; it will be destroyed. And you will most likely slowly begin to cease to exist as well. Warn people but make sure they trust you first. And whatever you do keep it a secret to everyone but the Hokage of your true identity. You can give him this. There will be two of you; paradox. Make sure you change your identity. Are you ready Shikamaru?"

Shikamaru took a deep breath and nodded holding the scroll given to him close to his chest. Naruto closed his eyes and Shikamaru felt the Kyuubi's chakra. Naruto slammed his hand into the ground where the seal lay. The seal glowed white and it was connected to a round circle which Shikamaru stood in the middle of. The white light grew even brighter before Shikamaru could see no more.
