FINALLY DARTHEMIUS HAS COME BACK TO FANFICTION!
Nah, don't give me that. I can't believe myself that this day has actually happened. True, it has been several years since I completed the first part of this story and I received many hate mail about not starting the second one. Well, to tell the truth I wanted to wait some more for the end of the fourth great shinobi war to start this thing…
But then I thought, FUCK IT! It's not like I will be following Kishimoto's plotline anyway. I will somewhat at the beginning, but it will end really soon. However I can promise you this. At the end of this story all the secrets that have been left unanswered in the first part will finally be revealed.
Now on a brighter note…
Firstly I want to thank everyone who supported me and my stories along the way. Without you this sequel would never has been made. And I received countless letters, saying that my work is the best. I know that many might disagree with this, but for those who don't, I thank you very much.
Secondly, I'm very proud to see that there are several people who took "Everyone has darkness" as an inspiration to write their own stories. I remember one guy who based his story solely on my 'Soul Drain' technique. And though he completely bastardized the idea, I'm still proud of being such an inspiration. Of course there has been several fics that I could call a sad parody on my story, but I won't. After all, I don't remember having any author's rights…
Alright, enough. I'm sure you're not here to hear my ramblings. So here it is, first chapter of the new season. But before that…
MAJOR WARNING! If you're not a fan of hardcore sex, senseless killings, heavy cursing, wrestling moves and quotes, backstabbing, overpowered characters, crucified grannies and flying cows, then I suggest you stop reading right now.
Oh, and almost forgot…
CLAIMER: Everything in this story belongs to me. If anyone says it ain't so, it's Kishimoto, Square-enix, Sega, Altus, Capcom, Arc System Works and Bio Ware.
And on that note…
LET"S GET THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD!
Chapter one: There and back again.
"Hell yeah!" – talks.
'Art is a blast!' – thoughts.
"Know your role!" – demon blades.
"Katsu!" – demonic/jutsu.
"Forget everything you know about this world and let winds of chaos guide you…" – Darthemius.
In the beginning there was Izanagi. The God of Creation, the Great Will, the One-Above-All. Call him whatever you want, it won't change anything.
With his unlimited power he created the world as we know it. Rivers and oceans. Islands and continents. Trees and grass. Animals and so on… He created all that why? Because he liked to create?
Then why? Because he had some great plan?
Maybe because he was too drunk and didn't understand what he was doing?
Nah. That would've been right in my case.
No, the correct answer is… The great being simply… got bored.
Yep, even the greatest can submit to boredom. But consider this, how long do you need to watch after an animal or a tree to have enough of it? I don't think it's more than an hour.
So Izanagi decided to entertain himself even more. He created another species and gave it intelligence. And a pretty advanced one at that.
Thus humans came to be.
And that animal entertained Izanagi greatly! It started slowly at first and he was actually starting to dismiss that species as a failure… when the first war started.
The Great God was captivated by it instantly. No other species he created tried to destroy each other. And humans were smarter than every other animal. Then why did they try to destroy each other?
And then he got it. That was exactly why. Because with intelligence come ambitions. And some humans' ambitions were just too high.
So when Izanagi saw the first war, he immediately understood one thing… There definitely must be another one.
And with that thought he made humans even more intelligent and… more aggressive. And it proved to be the correct choice. Wars never ended, and Izanagi was very pleased.
He was even more pleased when humans started to advance! They started to create themselves! But what fascinated Izanagi the most, was that every human creation was made to destroy humanity even more efficiently. A club, a knife, a sword, a rifle, a missile… The list went on and on.
Another thing Izanagi was so captivated with was humans' ability to create what they called… family. Something none other species did as well.
Something he never had.
And yes, he decided to try himself. So he went down on the planet he created himself and chose a single human female. And he placed his seed in her. And she delivered him three children while dying in the process.
Izanagi took his children and withdrew from mortal world. His family was complete. Now the only thing left to do was to name them. And he did that after the domain each of them chose for themselves.
First one was a girl with long raven hair and pale skin. Always quiet, calm and calculating, she chose the Moon to be her domain in order to keep a close eye on both of her siblings.
She was named Tsukiyomi. The goddess of Moon.
Second one was a girl with shiny golden hair and unsurpassed beauty. But because of that she grew up arrogant and prideful. Of course because of that she would settle for nothing else than the brightest and the biggest place to be her domain – the Sun.
She was named Amaterasu. The goddess of Sun.
Finaly, the third one was a boy who loved chaos and always preferred to be in the center of everything. No wonder he decided to seize Earth, becoming its supreme ruler.
He was named Susannoo. The god of sea and storm.
And their creation was actually a good thing. Why? Well, it's because Izanagi started to get bored with humans. But his children provided him with a new entertainment.
You see, Amaterasu was not really happy that lesser gods and inhabitants of Earth put Susannoo above her as the supreme ruler. She thought that she and she only must rule above all! So what she did? Right, she waged war on her own brother.
Susannoo was quick to answer and so the first Holy War has begun. Servants of both Supreme gods tore each other apart with powers their masters provided.
And that pleased Izanagi very much. Now instead of simple technology, warriors fought with divine power. Something that was never done before.
But they fought so ferociously that the world actually came to the brink of destruction. And it would've certainly been destroyed… If not for Tsukiyomi's intervention.
Too smart for her own good, as her father usually said, she understood that if that war isn't stopped, then everything will be destroyed.
So with that thought she approached her father…
"Yes, Tsukiyomi?" Izanagi replied, watching over the battle that was happening below on Earth. "What do you want, I am busy right now."
"I won't take much of your time, father." Tsukiyomi bowed respectfully. "I just want to ask you one question."
"Very well, you may ask."
Tsukiyomi paused. "What will become of this world once this war is over?"
"Hmhmhm…" Izanagi chuckled. "Everything that has a beginning has an end, my daughter. What you witness down below is this world's end. About time, I've got bored of this world anyway. Now I will scrap it and create a new one! Hmhmhm… think of the possibilities…"
Tsukiyomi's eyes narrowed. "I see… So this is your answer, father…"
"It is. Now begone. I want to see this battle to the end." Izanagi stated with a grin on his face.
What he didn't count on was Tsukiyomi's disagreement. And though she held no particular love for this world, she didn't want its destruction either. Of course, being the smartest, she decided not to do anything herself… and instead place all tasks on her younger siblings.
Of course Amaterasu and Susannoo were outraged when they learned that their father was going to destroy the world they worked so hard to conquer. And they actually put their differences aside for one particular battle.
That's right. They challenged their father, starting the second Holy War.
The fight was long and fierce, but in the end numbers won. Overwhelmed from both sides, Izanagi perished at the hands of his own children.
And after two Supreme gods stood victorious, they realized how close they actually came to destroying the world themselves.
So they made a pact… A pact to never intervene directly in affairs of mortals, while allowing them to choose between gods and fight freely as they pleased. A simple rule was made in order to never break this pact. For each intervention of one god, another will be able to intervene as well and do what he or she pleased, no matter what it is.
But the rule was never used, for two siblings never broke the pact. Until…
"WHAT THE FUCK?!" Uzumaki Naruto shouted, standing up from his seat.
"Hahahahahahahaha!" Children's laugh filled his ears. He could not believe what he was seeing…
He was in Konoha academy.
"Oi, Naruto. Stop embarrassing yourself and sit down." The blond suddenly heard a painfully familiar voice. Slowly he turned his head to the left and…
Yep, there was Uchiha Sasuke sitting right next to him… Yet it was not Sasuke he remembered. This Sasuke was only thirteen years old.
"Son of a bitch!" Naruto's right hand quickly shot forward and picked the Uchiha up by the throat. "How many times must I kill you for you to actually die?!"
Now he expected many things to happen. For Sasuke to try and break out of Naruto's hold. To counter and attack. Or at least throw a threat his way.
What he didn't expect was for Sasuke to simply stare at him in shock.
"Don't joke like that, Naruto." Someone said from behind and placed a hand on Naruto's shoulder. "Come on, dude, release him already."
Naruto glanced over his shoulder. There stood some guy with brown hair and concerned look on his face.
"Who in the blue hell are you?!" The blond asked.
"Huh?" Unknown guy's eyebrows rose. "It's me Ryuga, your friend! Hey, that's not funny anymore!"
Naruto looked around the classroom. All stares were directed his way. Some were shocked… and some were fearful.
'I must find out what's going on first.' He thought and released Sasuke. "Sorry."
"Damn." Sasuke said, rubbing his neck. "You could say you're not in the mood and stay home. Now my neck is all sore, geez…"
Naruto raised an eyebrow at this. 'Is this Sasuke? Where is the guy who says only 'Hn' and brood the entire day?!'
"Heh, perhaps he's sad that he didn't get your mother's cooking yesterday." Ryuga exclaimed with a grin on his face.
Now Naruto's second eyebrow joined the first in its attempt to escape from his forehead. 'MOTHER?! As in UCHIHA MIKOTO MOTHER?! But I thought…'
"Okay, I see you're all tired." Iruka suddenly said. "Let's take a short break and continue later."
"Finally!" Naruto stated. Then he quickly stood up, opened the window and jumped outside through it.
"O-Oi!" Ryuga tried to call him, but did not succeed. "What the hell is with him today?"
Sasuke shrugged. "Hell if I know. Maybe he at last found a girl he likes…"
"Huff… Huff… What the heck is going on?!" The blond shouted, panting heavily after a fast run. 'Okay, last thing I remember, I was surrounded by darkness… Then old son of a bitch appeared… Then he tried to steal Naruto's catchphrases… I still have to kick his ass for that one… No, don't get distracted! The darkness… And then light… Golden light.' His eyes widened. 'Fucking bitch! Where did she send me?! Or maybe it's just a genjutsu?'
The blond looked around. 'No, can't be. I have a sixth sense on things like these. So she actually sent me… where?' He looked down at himself. 'Oh, great. I'm in that jumpsuit again… To hell with it!'
"Kai!" Naruto cancelled his genjutsu and next second he already stood several inches taller, dressed in black t-shirt, black baggy pants and had no whisker marks. 'Okay, at least this is still me. Now what do I know of this world? I know that Mikoto is alive… or at least I'm presuming she's alive. I'll have to check it as soon as possible… But wait!' His eyes widened. 'That means I'm not in the past! Where the hell am I?'
"Gah!" Next second a sharp pain went through his head like a bullet. "What the hell was that? Bah, no matter. First I must…" Next words died in his throat. Why? Well, because he saw a person he never expected to see again.
"NEJI!" He shouted, running toward his friend. "Oi, Neji! Wait up!"
The Hyuga genius stopped slowly and turned around to see who called him.
Meanwhile Naruto rushed over and hugged Neji straight of the bat.
"Shit, man! You can't believe how happy I am to see…" Next second his eyes widened in shock. "Wha…?" The blond looked down… only to see Neji's hand striking a tenketsu point near his heart.
"Don't ever touch me again, trash." The Hyuga stated dangerously.
Naruto's jaw fell as he backed down, clutching his chest. "Wha…? What the hell, Neji?! It's me, Naruto! We…"
"I don't know who you are, and quite frankly I don't care." Neji interrupted him. "This is the only warning you will get. Don't come near me again if you know what's good for your health." With that he turned around and walked away.
Naruto just stood in shock for several more minutes.
"What… What the fuck was that?"
The blond turned his head to see Sasuke and Ryuga running toward him.
"Damn, where have you been?" Ryuga asked. "Iruka-sensei started taijutsu practice already!"
"Sure, isn't it your favorite part?" Sasuke added.
"Y-Yeah…" Naruto was just too shocked to argue. So instead he just decided to follow…
"Come on, Kiba!"
Naruto heard some cheers as he neared the academy building.
"So, ready to get your ass whopped again, dobe?" Sasuke asked with a smirk.
But Naruto was not even listening to him.
"Hey! What's up with you today?" The Uchiha asked. "Is something wrong?"
Naruto shook his head and turned to him. "Y-Yeah. Sorry, I just want to be alone for a second."
"A-Alright." Sasuke said and left to watch the matches.
Naruto's eyebrows furrowed. 'Not the best place, but… I have to check.'
"Go, Ki… mymh!" One Yamanaka Ino cheered when someone's hand covered her mouth.
"Shhh." Naruto said, dragging her behind a tree. "It's just me."
"Uzumaki?" Ino asked in surprise. "What the hell do you want?! Let me go!"
"What's my favorite catchphrase, Ino?" Naruto asked.
"What?! How the hell should I know?! Let me go, you loser."
And Naruto did let go. There was no reason to hold her anyway.
'She lost her memory as well…' He concluded, sliding under the tree. 'Everybody did. I'm all alone in this world…'
"Oi, Naruto! You're up." He heard Iruka's voice.
Naruto glanced at the chuunin dangerously. "Alright… I'm up." He whispered and slowly walked into the battle circle… Where Sasuke already waited for him.
"Come on!" The Uchiha said with a smile on his face. "Let's give it our best!"
"Okay, Naruto versus Sasuke!" Iruka announced. "Begin!"
Immediately Sasuke leaped forward with a kick. And Naruto… He raised his right hand instinctively.
"Byakurai!" He called… but of course nothing happened. No, actually something did happen.
Sasuke's kick got him right in the face.
"What the hell is wrong with you, Naruto!" Sasuke shouted. "You don't look like yourself toda…" Last words died in his throat when Naruto suddenly got up with extremely angry look on his face.
"Byakurai!" He shouted again, but got the same result. "Tch! Hadou #4 Byakurai!"
"Hahahahahahaha!" Children laughed at him again.
"What are you trying to do?" Sasuke asked in confusion.
Instead of response, Naruto glared down at his hands.
'My power… gone!' He raised his left hand. 'My sword… gone!' And then he ripped his shirt in half, making several girls blush. 'Please don't tell me…' The blond channeled some chakra and…
A seal appeared on his stomach.
"Oh no… no!" He mumbled, falling on his knees.
As soon as he saw that, Iruka gasped and walked over to his student, placing a hand on his shoulder.
"It's okay, Naruto." He began. "I know how you feel…"
(Starting song: "Otherworld" from Final Fantasy X soundtrack)
"You know how I feel?" Naruto asked angrily. "Well feel this!" He brought his left hand up, delivering a crushing uppercut to chuunin's abdomen.
"Tyrant Rave!" Naruto shouted, throwing a right punch, followed by a wall of flame.
Next moment Iruka's burning corpse went through academy wall. There were no need to check for life signs, the fact of his death was obvious.
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!" Children screamed in horror and started to run away in random directions.
"Oh my god…" Sasuke muttered in shock. "You… You killed him."
"HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" Naruto laughed madly, remembering something…
"Come, Uzumaki Naruto. Your mission has not even started."
"Ahaha…" The blond continued to laugh. "My mission?!" He showed two middle fingers at the sky. "I have your mission right here, bitch! You want me to start over?! To do things your way?! Well EH-EH! If you want me to continue, then that's exactly what I WON'T do! However I still have enough class to go with a bang!"
"N-Naruto…" Sasuke said his name in fear.
"YOU!" Naruto turned to him sharply with an angry glare. "This is all your fault!" With that angry shout he blurred out of view and appeared in front of Sasuke.
'Shit, he's fast!' Sasuke could only think before…
"Rising Sun!" Naruto exclaimed, doing several upwards kicks to Uchiha's midsection.
"Gah!" The raven haired teen gasped as air was knocked out of him while he himself got thrown high in the air.
"This time I'm gonna make sure you stay dead!" Naruto screamed, blurring from view again and reappearing… above Sasuke's position. "Moon Phase!"
Sasuke only managed to widen his eyes before a crushing somersault heel drop sent him back into the ground.
Uchiha's body landed hard, creating a small crater.
"It's fucking over!" The blond stated, twisting his body in midair. "Time to die, bitch! Starfall!" He shouted, preparing to dive at his long time nemesis with a deadly flying kick… but instead he had to dodge a projectile, which was aimed at his head, with a backwards somersault.
"What the fuck?" Naruto asked, landing gracefully on one knee.
"You fucking tell me!" A brown haired boy shouted back. "What the hell is wrong with you, Naruto?!"
The blond stood up slowly and tilted his head to the side. "Ah, you're that guy from before… What was your name again?"
"It's Ryu…" The boy suddenly stopped when a huge red chakra arm grabbed his entire body.
"IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOUR NAME IS!" Naruto shouted, throwing Ryuga into a wall with tremendous force. But before boy's body reached it…
"Got it!" A member of ANBU forces caught him in his flight. "Are you okay, kid?"
"Y-Yeah…" Ryuga replied.
"Good." ANBU said… as seven more ANBU members landed beside him.
"Eh?" Naruto exclaimed in amusement. "Well, well… What do we have here! Seven pieces of trash and one pathetic excuse of a piece of trash! I could say it's nice to see you again, but it will be a complete lie then… Kakashi."
First ANBU turned his head slowly and… Yep, silver hair, face mask, forehead protector over left eye. Hatake Kakashi without a doubt.
'Why ANBU though?' Naruto thought. 'Ah yes, he probably got withdrawn to teach Uke-chan, for what good it did…'
"Himura…" Kakashi began, narrowing his only visible eye. "Recover Sasuke-san and take him to the hospital."
"Hai!" Himura responded and shunshinned to Sasuke's battered body. "Hold on, Sasuke-san. You'll… Gah!" ANBU member slowly looked down… to see a red chakra sword sticking out of his stomach.
"Damn, what do they teach in ANBU these days?!" Naruto exclaimed, withdrawing his chakra sword. "To turn your back to a perspective enemy like that… Oh, and sorry to disappoint, but dear Uke-chan is going nowhere! Well, at least while his head is still connected to his shoulders. Now if you just let me correct that small detail, we…"
"Katon: Goukakyu no jutsu!"
Naruto was suddenly interrupted when a huge fireball flew at him from the side.
"Yeow!" Naruto exclaimed, dodging the fire technique. "How rude! I was not even done talking and you throw fireballs at me? Oh…" He stopped when he noticed that the fireball was sent by none other than… Kakashi. "A shadow clone? Not bad, but since I hate clones in all forms…"
"You." Kakashi pointed at another ANBU member. "Go inform Hokage-sama. Tell him that Kyuubi has somehow broken free."
Everyone's eyes widened at that.
"I said go!" Kakashi shouted.
"H-Hai!" The ANBU member said and disappeared in a puff of smoke.
"Ho, ho! And here I thought you would say something about teamwork and staying out of this battle." Naruto said and chuckled. "You made one mistake though, Kyuubi has not broken free."
"I know what I saw." Kakashi replied. "You used Kyuubi's power…"
"Which doesn't mean that Kyuubi has broken free. The seal was designed that way… But of course; what can you, a useless jabroni, know about delicate things like these."
Kakashi glared. "So you're the real Naruto then."
The blond raised an eyebrow in amusement. "The real Naruto?"
"Someone has told Sandaime-sama that your behavior is simply a mask. A mask to cover your real self from the eyes of this village."
"Oh? And what good old Sandaime replied to this?"
"Hahaha! Yeah, exactly what I thought." Naruto said, taking a kunai and a piece of paper from his kunai pouch. "But you know what, all this talk is really starting to bore me. For according to Naruto's rolex…" He quickly glanced at his wrist, noticing that there was no watch. "Sigh, no matter. I think we should… you know, get the shit on!" Kakashi glanced around, checking the probable battle area.
"Surround him from all sides and try to keep him within the academy grounds." The masked jounin ordered. "Most people are gone from here and we want to avoid any possible civilian casualties."
"Hai!" Five members responded instantly.
"But Kakashi-taicho, I don't understand. He's just one kid and…"
"Don't underestimate him." Kakashi interrupted. "Or have you forgotten already? He used Kyuubi's power like it was nothing."
"Damn right." Naruto added, wrapping a piece of paper around the kunai. "That was a moment of anger though. Don't worry, I won't use it again. Because…"
"SHIT!" Kakashi shouted, uncovering his left eye immediately. Why did he do that? Well… it might be because he saw what exactly Naruto was wrapping around his kunai. "Spread out! Run as far from each other as you can! He…" But he was not allowed to finish.
"Too late, buddy!" Naruto stated with a smirk… and threw his kunai. "Time for all kids to go to bed!"
"Hiraishin no jutsu!"
"Gueh!" Two ANBU members fell down as their throats were cut open.
"SENPAI!" Cat masked ANBU… actually named Uzuki Yugao screamed. "That's…!"
"Yes, Yondaime-sama's Hiraishin no jutsu." Kakashi said, drawing his sword. "We are in big trouble. Even with my Sharingan I won't be able to keep up with that jutsu."
"Damn right you won't!" Naruto's voice said… from behind.
"Shit!" Kakashi cursed again, jumping high just in time to avoid being hit by…
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!" Another unlucky ANBU member screamed at the top of his lungs as he was thrown through academy wall.
"NO!" Yugao yelled. "You will pay for that!" She rushed straight at Naruto with raised sword and he… let it hit him.
"What?" Yugao stared in shock at the unmoving body at her feet. "Just like that? That easily?"
"Of course not! What do they teach you in ANBU these days?! Come on!" Naruto's voice stated from… everywhere. "Where…? Kakashi-senpai! I can't see…" Yugao turned around to see… nothing. No one was there.
"What's going on? Where is…?" Suddenly a realization hit her. "Genjutsu!" She shouted and made a hand seal. "Kai!"
But nothing happened.
"Oh, come on!" Naruto's body appeared from the ground. "You didn't actually think it will be so easy to break out from the people's illusion, did you? Now…" Several more Narutos appeared. "I have a really exciting show just for you! Enjoy!"
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!" Yugao screamed and fell on her knees, shaking in fear.
"No, wait!" Kakashi grabbed his last remaining subordinate's hand. "She was struck by a strong genjutsu. We can't help her now with Naruto still around. We need to take him out first."
"Well done, Kakashi!" Naruto stated, walking out from behind. "What you failed to realize…"
Kakashi's eyes widened. 'Damn, can't move!'
An evil grin appeared on blonde's face. "Exactly. You've been trapped in my genjutsu as well."
"Gh." Kakashi struggled against his invisible bindings. "It's useless, Naruto. You know you can't get out of the village alive! Kyuubi's chakra or not, Konoha's garrison is too much for anyone, no matter who it is!"
"HAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA! Is that what you think?!"
"IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK!" Naruto shouted with insane look in his eyes. "A new beginning? A second chance? Hell NO! Getting out of the village?! Nah, I'd rather stay and play my favorite game named lay as much smackdown on Konoha as you can! I wonder who's going to take me out, don't you?! Oh, even the mere thought about this gives me the chills!" He walked closer. "Now if I remember correctly…"
"W-What are you doing?" Another ANBU member asked.
Naruto's grin widened. "You owe me one, Kakashi." With that the blond quickly threw his hand forward and… tore off Kakashi's left eye.
"EAAAAAAAAAHHH!" The masked jounin screamed in pain.
"Hehehe, what's the matter? Did that hurt? Oh you poor thing!" Naruto exclaimed, crushing the eye in his hand. "Well that was one, but you know what…" He paused. "Let's make that two!" He reached for Kakashi's last remaining eye when... "Ah!"
A sharp pain went through his head once again.
"What the fuck is… Gah!" He gasped. The pain was so much that he actually couldn't even remain on his feet. "Ah, the pain! What is happening to me?!"
"Find secluded area!" Sudden voice echoed.
"No time to explain! You need to find a quiet and secluded place right now! Do as I say if you want to live! You have one minute at best!"
"S-Shit…" Naruto cursed and in his last ditch effort threw his kunai. "H-Hiraishin no jutsu! AAAAAAAAAAAHHH!" He screamed and disappeared in a flash of yellow.
Immediately Kakashi and another ANBU member were released from genjutsu.
"What did just happen, Kakashi-senpai?"
"Cough… I don't know." Masked ninja stood up. "But I'm sure we must find him."
"B-But your wound!"
"Just a scratch. Now go and take care of Yugao. I'll inform Hokage-sama…"
The Netherworld. Same time…
"Okay, can everyone please shut the fuck up?!" Throzax the dragon king shouted.
Immediately the enormous room went silent.
"Good. Now am I right to assume that we all want to know what the hell is going on." The dragon continued.
Many nods from different clan representatives were his answer.
"Okay, what is the last thing you remember? Umm… Lions please."
"Well…" Aroyal looking lion started. "I got slain by Uzumaki Naruto…" He said, creating another uproar. "I believe my clan shared my fate."
"Very well… What about foxes?" Throzax asked.
"The same. Uzumaki Naruto has slain us all."
And another uproar.
"Okay, okay quiet!" The dragon king shouted again. "Now am I right to believe that we all shared the same fate?"
Many nods once again.
"Alright. Then here's what we all want to know… Why are we all alive and well?!"
"Only one thing comes to my mind…" Kuroken – the Grand Elder of the raven Clan began. "The reversal of time."
"What?" Throzax asked. "You mean we are actually in the past?"
"It seems that way." Kuroken replied.
"But why is our memory still intact?"
"That one's easy. Only humans get their memory reversed. Everyone starting from minor summons kept their memories of that horrible future…"
"Wait a minute!" Felina – the cat Elder interrupted. "Does that mean that Uzumaki lost his memory as well?"
"Hmm… I doubt it for some reason." Kuroken stated. "I think that the time was reversed because of him… But there might be a good side in this."
"What good side?" The lion asked.
"His memory might still be intact… His power, however, is most certainly not. Which means he was reduced to a simple mortal once again."
Throzax's eyes widened. "Then this might be our chance to finish him before that nightmare even started! Who has contacts in Konoha?!"
"I do!" Enma – the monkey Elder said. "Their Hokage is my clan's summoner. I even gave him the permission to summon me personally."
"Excellent! Then you know what to do! We are counting on you, Enma! Do not let the history repeat itself!"
Konohagakure no sato. The forest of death…
"Ah! Damn…" Naruto cursed, crawling towards the closest tree. "Never thought it would end like his… Oh crap…"
That second his pain became unbearable and he did the only possible thing in this situation. Yeah, he lost consciousness.
"Ho! Now that's a sight I haven't seen in a while!" The blond stated, looking at the Kyuubi's cage. "And here I thought… Hey!"
That moment he looked down on himself and noticed something.
He was no longer fifteen years old. Yep, he looked like he used to in the future. Only without his vest and sunglasses.
"Who cares, I'm dead anyway." With that he slowly walked to a wall, leaned against it and slid down. "Shit, who would've thought that I'm gonna die because of a headache…" He chuckled. "Oh, the ultimate irony! Everyone who tried to end my life failed… only for me to die on my own… alone…"
A frown appeared on his face.
"Heh, and what did you expect, Uzumaki?! Traitorous slimy assholes are bound to die that way. Aha… Ahahahahaha! Well at least I can be proud of myself! I'm the only person in history who went against the world and won! And that's alright…" He paused. "Yes, everything's alright… I had more fun in life than anyone! Sigh… But all fun comes to end and… And I guess this is my end."
Naruto looked down and smiled. "Heh, for some reason I don't feel sad. I guess that's because I've done it all. Yeah, I've been a friend, a lover, a hero, an actor, a traitor, a slayer, a demon, an Overlord, the toughest son of a bitch in the world… Shit, I've even been Sakura's mother at some point! That's why I have no regrets. And that's why… huh?"
Suddenly two naked feet got into his line of sight.
"What the…" The blond slowly raised his head to see… a very beautiful and very naked young girl looking down at him.
"Kushina?" Naruto asked, but then realized it can't possible be her. No, Kushina had fiery red hair and this girl had light green. Besides, Kushina wasn't naked last time he saw her. "Who in the green hell are you?"
A playful smirk appeared on girl's face, and instead of response she just changed her eye color…
"Kh… HAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" Naruto laughed madly. "No fucking way! You're a girl?! Shit, now I've seen everything! How did you get out of your cage? Wait, you know what, forget it! I don't care how you're out. You wanna take me out? You wanna get free? Well go ahead, I won't even resist. I was thinking about releasing you anyway."
And just as he said that a soft pretty hand… grabbed him roughly by the throat and raised his body off the ground.
Not very surprised by it, Naruto's only response was placing his right hand in front of girl's face and… motion for her to bring it.
"Fuck!" Naruto fell on his knees once again. "Damn that hurt. Do you want to torture me a little before killing? Sure, I don't mind." He turned to her once again. "Do your worst!"
This slap was actually powerful enough to knock him off his knees.
"Ouch!" Naruto fell on his back. "Hah, reminds me of Tsunade a little…"
"So, have you come to your senses yet?" The girl spoke for the first time.
"Ho-Ho! And here I thought dick got your tongue!"
"Well, I wanted to speak right away. But it was funny to see you have an emotional breakdown. Now, are you ready to listen, or should I kick your whiny ass some more?"
"Sorry babe, but I'm not in the mood for talking…" Naruto spat.
As if expecting that, the girl placed her right foot on his crouch. "Think again."
Naruto looked at his most prized possession with wide eyes. "Sure, I'm all ears!"
"Good." The girl removed her foot. "Now that you stopped your melodrama let me say this…" She looked him straight in the eyes. "I'm impressed, and it's not an easy thing to do."
"Huh?!" Naruto asked in confusion. "Impressed by what?! My bitching?!"
"No." She smiled. "By everything you did in the future."
Blonde's eyes widened. "What?! How do you know that?!"
"Simple, I have access to all your memories."
Naruto paused, but then his eyes widened even more. "But wait, that's impossible! If you had all my memories, then you knew that I…"
"Yes." Kyuubi interrupted. "I knew you were going to drain my power and destroy me."
"But… Why didn't you stop me?"
"That's easy." The girl said. "It's because I wanted to die."
Three seconds of silence.
"Hmhmhm…" Kyuubi chuckled. "Is that so hard to believe? Do you have any idea how old I am, Naruto?"
"Well… No, actually I don't." He smiled sheepishly.
"Don't worry, I don't either. I simply stopped to count at some point…"
"Wait a second, I remember now!" Naruto shouted. "You're not the original Kyuubi!"
The girl nodded. "That is correct."
"It's a long story…"
"I'm not in a hurry."
"Actually you are, for you have only several seconds until you die." Kyuubi stated.
"Yeah, I already realized that." Naruto said with sarcasm. "Speaking of which, what was that headache?"
"Oh, that one's simple." Kyuubi stated. "You see, when you were transported through time into this body, you kept your memory. But that was not the only thing you kept. Your brain functions also remained."
Naruto tilted his head to the side. "Huh? Simple you say?"
The girl sighed. "Demonic brain is very different from normal human brain. In the time human brain sends one electric impulse, demonic brain sends thirty four. And when you first drained my power, your brain became like that. What you don't know is that reverse process is impossible. When you became a demon, all your body cells were destroyed and recreated anew. You were only able to survive that because demons have high speed regeneration. Humans do not. So to put your problems easily, you have a demonic brain in a human body. And it's starting to fail you."
"That makes sense." Naruto nodded. "I wonder why it didn't start straight of the bat."
"That's because of your jinchuuriki regeneration. But it can only do so much." Kyuubi said. "However, time doesn't flow here, so I guess I can tell you my story." She closed her eyes. "You see, even before becoming a demon I was immortal… literally. No matter how much damage my body sustained, or how many years passed, I still looked young and didn't die. It was a curse that was passed onto me by a person I trusted… The only person I trusted."
"Trust is a dangerous thing." Naruto commented.
"Too true." Kyuubi nodded. "And so I was, wondering aimlessly in search for someone who will end this curse… And then I heard about a mighty demon called Kyuubi no yoko. Excellent I thought. If he can't end my life, then who can? So I searched him out and finally found him. And he had all the power I imagined, and he had no problem with ending my life… at first. Because he slashed me with his claws, and I didn't die. He chewed me down with his teeth, and I didn't die. He smashed me with his tails and I didn't die. He fried me with his breath and I didn't die. And then…" She paused again. "Rage overcame him completely. So he started to pour his demonic energy into me, hoping that at least this would end me. But it didn't. So he poured his energy… until there was none left."
"Oh boy…" Naruto said.
"Yes. When I understood what happened, I… It was horrible, Naruto. Instead of an end, I became even more invincible." The girl stated. "That moment I finally snapped. Rage was the only thing that occupied my mind. I killed previous Kyuubi and went on a rampage, seeking to destroy everything that came before my eyes. And that continued until…"
"You came to Konoha."
"Yeah, I came to Konoha. And your father sealed me in you… That was a big shock, believe me. But once I realized your ambitions, I tried to help you in any way I could. Because you were the only one who could end my existence. But…"
"But?" Naruto asked.
"But when the time was reversed I gained all your memories and… I never believed someone will be able to raise my interest once again."
"How could one man go against everyone and win?" Kyuubi asked. "I've never seen that done before! And I… I want to see it with my own eyes, not in some memory flashes."
Naruto's eyebrows furrowed. "What do you mean by that?"
"I want you to take my power once again."
"Hell no! I'm not starting over! I…"
"Think of the opportunities, Naruto!" Kyuubi shouted. "Think of the possibilities! You will be able to do things you couldn't back then!"
Naruto's eyes widened. "Sarutobi!"
Kyuubi smiled maliciously. "I see you're not so against it anymore. So?" She extended her hand.
"Eh? But that will kill you."
"Not if I give it to you myself." Kyuubi stated. "It's a contract."
"I… But why? Didn't you want to die?" The blond asked.
"I did… Because I wanted to put an end to my experience." The girl sighed. "But after gaining your memories… Death is just another experience for me."
"So? Will you take the contract?" She extended her hand once again.
"Hmhmhm…" Naruto chuckled and got up slowly. "Nah, this is not how you seal the deal." He stated and wrapped his right arm around her waist. "Allow me to show you the right way!"
With that he pulled her closer into a fierce kiss, shoving his tongue inside her mouth right away. The girl responded immediately by wrapping her arms around his neck, pulling even closer. Both didn't know how much that moment lasted, but when their lips finally parted, both noticed that they stood in the middle of the forest.
They have returned to the real world.
"Shit… this is gonna hurt, right?" Naruto asked, whispering into girl's lips.
"I think so." She replied… and immediately jumped backwards because an enormous burst of energy erupted from Naruto's body next second.
"This is outrageous! I will slay whoever did this…"
"You will do no such thing, Death." A beautiful woman in a bright blue dress stated. "You are not strong enough."
"What?!" The Death god responded. "Are you saying that I'm weak, sister?!"
"Enough. You know as well as everyone here that the reversal of time was made by the Supreme Goddess. No one is strong enough for her."
"Grr…" Death growled. "Yes, I know, Order… This however doesn't make me any less angry! I had to release three souls I possessed! THREE!"
"Not everyone is angry like you, Death." Another woman in the group stated. "The planet suffered a huge natural crisis because of all the wars and destruction."
"I agree with Nature." Life stated. "Many lives were wasted as well. Lives I worked so hard to create. As for your souls, you can have them again anytime."
"Tch, fine. But I'm still…" Death suddenly stopped. "My Lord!" He bowed.
"Lord Susannoo!" Others followed suit.
A handsome man walked into the room and sat down at the head of the table. "Be seated."
Four gods did.
"Now as you probably guessed, the time really was reversed." Susannoo began. "And you also probably guessed that it was done by my sister…"
"B-But my lord!" Order spoke. "The pact was never broken! Why would she interfere because of one single human?"
"Because that single human could put an end to everything!" Susannoo's voice boomed. "I had to intervene… However that was the exact thing she wanted."
"But why would she intervene like this?" Nature asked. "I mean, she could do anything. Why only reverse time?"
"No, not just reverse time." Life stated. "I can feel it. She changed something else. But I don't know what it is. At least not yet."
"It doesn't matter." Susannoo said. "Whatever she did, she did it for her own personal gain. Amaterasu was always the selfish one. However she is not all-knowing…"
"What do you mean by that, my lord?" Death asked.
A smirk appeared on Susannoo's face for the first time since his arrival. "She doesn't know I forbade time travels." His smirk widened. "And she doesn't know what punishment awaits those who will choose to defy me…"
Konohagakure o sato. The forest of death…
"Naruto?" Kyuubi looked down in the crater once the flow of energy stopped.
"Are you alright?"
"Hmhmhmhahahahaha! AAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" Naruto raised his head and looked at her with pitch black eyes. "Not yet… It's not over yet… Because FINALLY…!"
