Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter, and Naruto.
Uzumaki Influence - Is my current work, I will not post notes with the chapter, just in my profile.
Chapter 1 - The hole chapter as I see it is Naruto is an extremely lonely boy who only understands that, everything he does before graduation is to garner the attention of someone, when he found that first person, Iruka in cannon I believe he changed in very profound ways, he mellowed out to an extreme extent and focused down a little bit. In cannon he didn't have anything to focus on but I think if someone had said to him, "Naruto you would be great at doing this," and gave him a grounding to start off of he would have gone so far. In this chapter that grounding occurs during the fifth year of the academy, assuming they start at six and end at twelve, right after that fifth year ends. The 'what' meaning what activated Mito from deep within him could be anything, I'll leave it up to your imagination, but I don't think Naruto was ever hurt or beat as a child. First and foremost he is an asset of the village and assets are guarded around the clock, with or without their knowledge. Secondly I think it would be taboo to hurt any child no matter the reason, so in the World of Naruto the only thing people can do is ignore him to the point of depression. I know someone is going to say "Well Garaa was treated just as badly, even worse cause his abilities are uncontrollable to an extent." I would say to that, look at Bee and Nii from the Cloud, they are revered as Hosts. So to say 'All Hosts are hated' is a misnomer.
Chapter 2 - I see him growing in this chapter so much because of the care that is given to him both by Sarutobi and Mito's actions. Sarutobi in cannon can be kind of a hardass so I've given him a little more of a softer edge, this is mainly because I don't think he would hateful towards Naruto in anyway. This doesn't mean he's unofficially Naruto's grandfather or something like that, it means he cares for Naruto just as much as the rest of the people in Konoha. Now he's giving Naruto attention because of the interaction between Naruto and Mito, he knew Mito before and it did change his outlook on how to handle Naruto after it happened. I don't see Sarutobi helping Naruto in terms of anything else than becoming a better Shinobi, it's just now he see's Naruto differently.
Chapter 3 - The seal, it's something a basic seal master should be able to make, I visualize a basketball sized seal with a fluid type circle in the middle to measure the Physical and Spiritual aspects of his chakra, and also outputs a basic percent. The middle of the circle looks like chakra in a way, the top being a cyan color that represents the Spiritual and Magenta being the bottom color representing Physical. I'm usingas a guide to chakra, these main colors will come up, in the story because by using the seal he made any number of combinations can be used to create other types of chakra. For example I see the Yellow as more of a Nature chakra that Naruto would use during sage mode, but also I could put Elemental Chakra under Yellow also, Combining these would create other colors. My theory of Bloodline limits is that by combining these different types of chakra you get something new, a bloodline limit helps in this process by merging the three different chakras for him or her. At least it's what I think, obviously this only works with elemental bloodlines such as wood release and ice release or boil. I don't know, I'm not giving Naruto a Bloodline or access to these elements, just thinking about how he would use this seal. Drop me a note if you think of something.
Starting Age - 6
Name - Rookie Nine centric
Spot Light - Naruto
Summary - Basically the whole class is sorted into teams from the first day as a part of a new test, building bonds before they graduate will produce better ninja, they will go through the process of elimination in tell only the Rookie Nine is left. Naruto is the spotlight with friends who like him causing his progress to speed up, not genius level but he should be known for producing the most unpredictable tactics causing his team to be first in every test.
Send me a message with the first chapter, I have some other ideas. I have posted a chapter of what I think this challenge might be like. It's very open ended, I do not like abuse of the characters so avoiding that cliche would be recommended.
