Disclaimer: I do not own Naruto or any other fictional property I may borrow an idea or two from.
Yo, Alky here. This is my first attempt at a Fanfic, I've been reading a lot over the past two years and I figured I should at least give it a go. All the stories I do will be based off of a possible Narutoverse that could've happened from a small incident, or a different decision. This one is obviously, what may have happened if Naruto chose a different jutsu from the forbidden scroll. I read a story that used a jutsu similar to the one Naruto chooses to learn, although I honestly can't remember whose story it was (think it was called Everyone has darkness?) so I apologise if you feel I should've asked first, but it's a bit late now.
Anyways, give me some reviews if you think I should continue the story. I'll put up the first few chappies asap. J
Let's get started!
Chapter 1: Ninja Art: Soul Drain
'I have to make it to Mizuki sensei's training area' Naruto thought as he ran as fast as he could away from the Hokage tower with the forbidden scroll on his back
"Naruto has stolen the forbidden scroll of sealing from my office, I want the scroll and Naruto returned to me NOW and I will NOT accept failure, we can't let Naruto be hurt or the scroll captured" Hiruzen Sarutobi, the third Hokage of Konoha proclaimed.
"HAI HOKAGE-SAMA" a battalion of Chunnin and Jounin called.
"Move out!" And with a wave of his arm, the Shinobi of the hidden leave village disappeared in a puff of smoke.
"Let's see….Shadow clone jutsu? CRAP I suck at clones! Next, Reaper death seal? Sounds like an emo jutsu, hehe, maybe I should keep this for the teme!" Naruto laughed at his little joke while looking through the scroll. "Huh? 'Ninja art: Soul Drain…Absorbs the target into the user and gives the user access to the target's muscle memories, recently used jutsus and consciousness into their own mind.' Sounds kinda weird" Naruto wondered on its uses for a while.
"Well I gotta start somewhere, okay Soul Drain it is!"
"Hey, Iruka sensei! Wow you found me fast I was only able to learn one jutsu!"
Iruka paused and had a good look at Naruto, he was scuffed and dirty and seemed to be jumpy but focused at the same time… almost like the squirrels found in these forests. "Naruto, why did you steal the forbidden scroll? Do you know how much trouble you'll be in?"
"Nah I'll be fine! Mizuki sensei said that I'll be a Gennin after learning one of the jutsu in this scroll, Hokage-jiji won't mind if I borrowed it" Naruto yelled with a grin.
'Mizuki?' Iruka wondered suspiciously before hearing a whizzing sound. "NARUTO MOVE" he turned back to Naruto only to see him scurrying up a tree while staring into the forest just in time to avoid most of few dozen kunai, receiving only two; one cutting his left foot and the other scraping his right bicep.
"Wow Iruka, you sure did find the little monster fast" Mizuki snarled from a branch on the other side of the clearing.
"Mizuki! What are you doing?"
"Sensei what's going on? Why did you attack me?" Naruto asked as he fell onto the ground, nursing his wounds.
"Shut up demon!" Mizuki screamed as he hurled one of his giant shuriken at a scared and hurt Naruto.
"NARUTO GET DOWN"
Naruto looked up only to see Iruka knelt over him with the shuriken stabbed into his back.
"…Iruka...Sensei…? ….why?" Naruto asked with tears in his eyes
"Because Naruto-cough cough- I couldn't just let my favourite student be hurt." Iruka boldly stated with a sad grin.
"Hahaha! Favourite student? Please Iruka we both know you hate just him like everyone else, that's why you always lied to him." Mizuki stated with a wicked smirk.
"Lied to me..? About what?" Naruto asked in confusion.
Mizuki's smirk grew into a crazed grin, "About why everyone hates you."
Iruka's eyes widened in disbelieving shock "DON'T MIZUKI!"
Mizuki jumped down behind Iruka and pulled up a kunai to finish Iruka "The truth is Naruto, you are the Nine-Tailed Fox, Kyuubi reincarnated!"
Naruto stared in stunned silence at Iruka's face, 'It all makes sense now, why they all glare at me, my birthday, the beatings,…' Thinking of all the painful past experiences Naruto started falling into a depression, then seeing the look on Iruka's pained face he remembered the few that do care about him and made a decision. 'NO! I don't care if I was the fox before! Right now, I'm Naruto Uzumaki and I have a sensei to protect!'
Naruto rolled out from underneath Iruka while swiping a kunai and throwing it at Mizuki's shocked form. It nailed his right lung.
"AAAGH! You little bastard!" Mizuki looked up in time to see Iruka throwing his shuriken right back at him.
"Take this traitor!" Iruka yelled. Mizuki dove out of the way, but not fast enough.
"AAAAHHHHH" he screamed as his legs were sliced off at the knee. In a last ditch effort, Mizuki threw his last shuriken at Iruka, which Iruka dodged by ducking behind a tree, the shuriken stuck halfway through the tree shocking Iruka with Mizuki's strength, that was when Mizuki smirked holding a hand sign.
"KATSU" the shuriken exploded, knocking the tree down and throwing Iruka far out of the clearing.
Mizuki's vision was starting to fade… 'Well at least I got to take that smart bastard out with me'.
"Forgetting someone?" Mizuki's eyes widened when he saw Naruto in front of him holding the ox hand sign.
"Demon! What are yo-"
"NINJA ART: SOUL DRAIN"
That's when Mizuki felt it, Naruto chakra was compressing Mizuki's down into a little ball, it was excruciatingly painful "AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHhhhh…" when Naruto's left hand clenched Mizuki's forehead his whole body was sucked into Naruto through his palm leaving only his shredded and bloody clothes behind.
Naruto fell to his knees clutching his head.
"Huh? What happened?" Naruto looked around finding himself in a large maze of sewers. "This is weird"
"Boy, come here" a dark voice bellowed from around the corner.
Naruto walked around the corner to find a HUGE room with a giant cage in it, "Umm hello? Is anyone there?"suddenly, a giant claw reached for him from between the bars and only missing by a few inches of his face"…..ugh?" Naruto muttered before falling on his ass.
"This is my container? Jeez you're fuckin tiny" The Nine-Tailed Fox Demon mocked from beyond his steel cage.
"K-Kyuubi..?" Naruto stuttered in shock.
"Well what do you know, he's not a complete moron." Kyuubi chuckled at Naruto's frustrated face.
"Oi! I'm Naruto Uzumaki! And I'm gonna be Hokage someday!" Naruto yelled in a childish fury, "You can't talk to me like that!".
"Wha….? What did you do to me demon?" Naruto turned around to see a nude Mizuki hung on the wall by chains. "Gah!..the Fox?"
"Boy, what is this pathetic creature doing here?" the Fox asked with a snarl.
"Ummm I think I did it with my technique, the Soul Drain." Naruto replied in a slight awe that it worked properly.
"Hmmm were you practicing this technique on squirrels?"
"…That explains the lunch I enjoyed a few minutes ago"
"Lu-Lunch?" Mizuki stuttered while shaking in fear on the fox demon.
"YATTA that means I saved Iruka sensei!" Naruto cheered before turning to Mizuki with a dark look on his face, "Now to finish what I started."
"Hmhmahaha! BOY! I think this will be the start of a beautiful friendship" the fox grinned from behind Naruto, with Naruto matching the wicked grin.
"What are you doing Demon?" Naruto walked over to Mizuki while weaving three hand signs "N-Naruto what are you doing?"
"Finishing my technique, HA!" with that a glow emanated from Mizuki and split in two, the first part entered Naruto through his eyes and mouth, and the other materialised in front of Mizuki's body, taking the form of a clothed Mizuki himself.
"AAAAHHhh…actually that didn't hurt as much as I thought it would." Naruto said while smiling at a see-through clothed Mizuki that was on his knees in front of his hung body. "Hey Kyuubi-san, open up!" Naruto then flung Mizuki's body to the fox, who happily munched on the corpse before swallowing.
"Mmm….boy, you are by far the best host I have ever had HAHAHAHAHAHA" Kyuubi smiled with blood hanging from his lips.
Mizuki's consciousness looked on and expected to feel furious at Naruto and the fox, but all he could manage was a weak…"What am I gonna live in now? And how come I'm not pissed at you dem-"I'm THE FUCKING DEMON YOU WHELP"-…okay, Naruto it is. Why am I not trying to kill you right now"
Naruto looked at Mizuki seriously, "….I dunno".
Mizuki stared right back with a slight frown, "….You're a brat".
"I can answer that," both Naruto and Mizuki looked up at the giant fox "I consumed, along with your body, your negative emotions,"
"Umm why? if you don't mind me asking Kyuubi-san?" asked Naruto
"…They taste juicy".
"Ooookay," Mizuki said feeling confused but…happy? "So now what Naruto? Fox Demon"
"Now, you stay right here," Kyuubi stated before placing his giant claw over Mizuki's frame, thus holding him in place
"OUCH BASTARD FOX!"
"Huh…guess he can still feel frustrated"
"And me Kyuubi-san?" Naruto asked with a raised arm.
"Well now brat, you have a story to fabricate" the fox replied before blowing a 'light' breeze at Naruto, flinging him out of the cage room and down the hall
"OOOOOO-(smack)OUCH" Naruto said as he fell onto his ass…again.
Looking around, Naruto realised he was back in the field he and Iruka defeated Mizuki in.
'Wha…? Was any of that real' Naruto thought.
"AH" Naruto span around looking for the Kyuubi.
"I'm still in your head kid, and you need to get rid of those clothes," That's when Naruto looked down and saw Mizuki's bloody clothes leftover from the jutsu.
'How do I do that Kyuubi-san?' Naruto thought to the Kyuubi.
"Hey it's your problem not mine, you figure it out"
Naruto sat thoughtful for a second before he heard Iruka moan and get up from his place just out of sight. Naruto panicked trying to think of a solution quick 'Ummm… Uuugh….I GOT IT' he thought with a grin.
Naruto weaved a few hand signs before whispering "EARTH STYLE: HEAD-HUNTER JUTSU!" and diving into the ground taking Mizuki's clothes with him.
Iruka wandered into the clearing on guard, "Naruto? Where are you?"
Naruto popped up behind Iruka and shouted "RIGHT HERE SENSEI"
"AAAHH!" Iruka yelped before falling on his ass causing Naruto to laugh loudly.
Naruto paused in his laughter for a moment while thinking, 'Hold–up, how the heck do I know the head-hunter jutsu?'
Iruka looked annoyed at Naruto before realising the absence of Mizuki. "Hey Naruto? Where's Mizuki? Did he get away with the scroll?"
"No way sensei! I got the scroll right here! I destroyed Mizuki just like a future Hokage would!" Naruto said with a grin while pointing to a darkened patch of earth with a blood-stained headband sitting atop it.
Iruka's eyes widened in disbelief, "You…completely destroyed him?...how?"
Naruto's grin grew even wider, "With my new jutsu from the scroll"
Iruka stared at Naruto in shock, 'This academy dropout managed to beat a high-level Chunnin? With one jutsu?' Iruka thought in amazement, 'If that doesn't prove he should be a Gennin then I don't know what will'
Grabbing Mizuki's headband from the ground, Iruka waved Naruto over, "Hey Naruto close your eyes for a sec."
Grinning stupidly, Naruto sat in front of Iruka with his eyes closed, Naruto felt a tugging on his goggles then a cool feeling replacing them. "Congratulations Naruto," Naruto opened his eyes to see Iruka and his reflection in the goggles that he was holding, "You graduate!"
Naruto reached up to Mizuki's headband, 'No, it's mine.' He thought in awe before hugging his sensei, "IRUKA SENSEI!HAHAHAHAHA"-
"OUCH NARUTO I'M STILL BLEEDING HERE"-
R&R J I welcome constructive criticism.
Starting to go back and re-edit my chapters now :D hope everyone is happy with how my story is turning out. (If you've only just started reading, you're in for a treat! Well, at least that's what some of the reviews I got have been suggesting :D)
