AN: Here is a special chapter that will serve as the connection between last chapter and the timeskip that is coming up. I also want to express how pleased I'm by the general response of the readers to the last issue development. I sincerely thought that I lost many readers or that I would have been flamed until the Final Day. To my surprise, many express both their disgust and their acceptance of said chapter, which motivated me enough to write this interlude, with hope to tied some loose ends. I hope you enjoy it.

note: this chapter is unbetaed.


Chapter 8

Interlude:

Beyond the End


This report was based on the evidence found and recorded testimony of witnesses, around the events that occurred a five months prior, at the eleventh day of the ninth month of the eighth year after the Kyuubi no Kitsune first attack. Said event had been labeled as Dark September Project.


The start point had been determined the day of disappearance of Namikaze Naruto and Hyuuga Hinata. The circumstances are unknown, but the soul of the Kyuubi no Kitsune, sealed within Namikaze Naruto, escaped. It was confirmed later by Namikaze Mito and Namikaze Minato that Namikaze Naruto freed the demon's soul voluntarily, and the help of Hyuuga Hinata is presumed.

Seven days after the disappearance of the two heirs, the seals on Namikaze Mito, who possessed the sealed chakra of the Kyuubi no Kitsune, and Namikaze Kushina, another jinchuuriki unknown until them, failed, freeing the demon's latent power, causing the demise of 34 active Chuunin , 9 active Jounin and 68 civilians, for a total of 102 casualties (see annex 3 for a complete list by rank of the deceased). Forensic showed that the seal failed because the central matrix of the sealing array was gone when Namikaze Naruto freed the demon's soul.

Namikaze Kushina and Mito resulted in deep coma for 21 days.

25 hours after the accident, the Kyuubi no Kitsune, having taken a female human form, under the name of Uzumaki Kurama, was registered in the entries log, and was recorded as the reason of arrival her personal search for Uzumaki survivors. The pretender then, proceed to, via an unknown form of passive genjutsu (see annex 7 to read the complete analysis and findings by the Kurama Clan) to control at subliminal level the Namikaze family, Uchiha Mikoto and Hyuuga Hitomi (see annex 8 for the complete report by Yamanaka Inoichi). During the 5 months prior the DSP, the pretender proceeded to have, controlling the victims, sexual intercourse with repetitive frequency.

Three days prior the DSP, Uchiha Shusui disappeared. Under the later testimony of Uchiha Mikoto, Uchiha Shusui was kidnapped and tortured before being killed by Uchiha Mikoto, who then took the victim's Magenkyo Sharingan for herself. It was undercover that, two months prior the start of hostilities with Hidden Cloud, Uchiha Kagami and his son, Shusui, discovered that Uchiha Kousen, their cousin and uncle respectively, had been selling Konoha's secrets to Hidden Cloud regarding the Hyuuga Clan, thus they ended up killing him and awakening their Mangekyo Sharingan. Discovering the drawbacks of said mutation of their bloodline, father and son interchange their pair of eyes, somehow nullifying the degrading of their sight. Uchiha Kousen was reported dead by natural causes and Uchiha Kagami was reported KIA a eighteen months later. It is still unknown how the pretender got hold of the previously detailed information.

With the power of the Mangekyou Sharingan: Kotoamatsukami, that was upgraded by some unknown seal placed by the pretender, Uchiha Mikoto mind slaved the Uchiha Clan, and engineered a coup d'etat. The day zero of the DSP, she proceeded to increase the power of her newly obtained Mangekyou Sharingan by another seal-based ritual that included the assassination of Uchiha Fugaku, Mikoto-san's husband, by her own hands.

After Uchiha Mikoto was detained by the Fourth Hokage, and after questioned, an ANBU squad was send to retrieve the non combatants Uchiha that were placed under a stasis ward to keep them safe, it was then discovered that said wards were sabotaged and changed by an unknown party, though the pretender is suspected, causing a lethal malfunction in them. No survivors were found.

Uchiha Sasuke, Uchiha Mikoto and Fugaku younger son, was found under a different set of barriers safe and rendered unconscious. The whereabouts of Uchiha Itachi, along side Hatake Kakashi, Yuuhi Kurenai and Mitarashi Anko, are unknown.

After the survivor matriarch questioned, her bloodline was sealed and the Uchiha secret records under the Nakano Shrine were destroyed.

Around the same time, Hyuuga Mikoto killed the whole Hyuuga Clan, bar her immediate family, with the use of a hidden function in the New Caged Bird Seal (see annex 9 for a complete joint report by Senju Tsunade and Jiraiya). Even the six Hyuuga members that were outside the village on missions were found dead later on.

Namikaze Kushina and Namikaze Mito were viciously and repeatedly raped, before being found by Namikaze Minato, who had killed every Uchiha rebel, bar Uchiha Mikoto, minutes prior. During the battle that followed, the Fourth Hokage was severely wounded and had his signature technique, the Hairishin, sealed by an unknown curse seal technique. A solution hasn't been found yet.

Himura Danzo, alongside a unknown unit of ANBU level ninja, was terminated for joining with the Uchiha Clan to help with the coup d'etat, in exchange of being place as the next Hokage until a member of the Uchiha Clan was elected was the new leader.

Uchiha Mikoto was placed was placed under surveillance while her majority of her wounds were being healed. Her limbs were reattached, but her chakra was seal and was placed under a joint mental therapy by Yamanaka Inoichi, Yamanaka Ingo and Kurama Murakumo.
