Well, hi there!
Age: 28 (19.Jan.1986)
Gender: last time i checked i was male...but between having 15 Billion Liters of Oil in the Ocean, dodging the radiation sliping through a Ozone-hole the size of Australia and eating MREs - that could change before I hit my thirties.

Ryousanki's Way to Noodle-goodness 101
Warning: The following recipe is made by me and my somewhat scary imagination. This is not an original japanese recipe, so it's safe to say that anybody with enough knowledge or an actual Japanese will laugh at/punch me/you if me/you say's it is. Be also aware of the fact, that i'am a decent cook, which means that i won't decapitate myself with a kitchen knife. However, if you know that this is exactly what would happen to you in any kitchen...just let your mom or your girl/boyfriend do the cooking or stay with your local fast-food delivery service.
As a dedicated Fan of Naruto, it was unavoidable to stumble across the culinary Sensation that is Ramen. A Dish made of a rich Broth and a good handful of rice-based Noodles cooked to perfection! Its astounding simplicity makes it one of most variable Foods of that lovely Island Nation in the Far East. You can add almost any ingredients and flavours you can think of. All kinds of Meat, Seafood or Vegetables – sometimes even Fruits – can harmonize together if handled by a seasoned Chef.
And right now, it will be YOU, my dearest reader, who’ll get a crash course in making a simple variant of Ramen. Rejoice!
Before there is any cooking, you need to make sure to have some simple basic tools available.
Absolutely necessary Tools are:
-Wok (or a deep uncoated Frying pan)
I use a small Wok (around 1,5L) with an equally small Ethyl Alcohol-fuelled burner that my Girlfriend once gave me as a joke. Imagine her surprise when she saw that I actually used it to make a tasty meal for myself
-A sharp Knife
-At least one small and one medium sized bowl
Anything else you should find in any halfway decent stocked Kitchen.
So, now that we have the hardware covered, we need the ingredients. Just like with the Tools, there are some basic ones that you should have at hand.
Personally, I use bottled water since it contains less chalk and it’s unchlorinated.
-A main-ingredient (Like Beef, Pork, Fish, Shrimps…)
You don’t expect me to explain how to make them from scratch, are you?
-Shallot or red Onion
-Basil (ok, that one’s more optional then necessary)
-Bouillon cubes (in a flavour close to the main-ingredient)
If you can see the aforementioned Tools and ingredients on your working surface of choice, you are most likely set.
It should be mentioned that you need at least some basic cooking skills to do this one successfully. If, for some strange reason, you are not able to even fry an egg, you should reconsider this altogether and stay with instant-ramen. It’s safer for you and me. (For me, because there is always some retard trying to sue an complete innocent for his/her own dumbness…)
Anyway, we now commence the creation of tasty greatness!
Depending on what kind of Cooker you have (Gas, electric, induction, ceran or open campfire) it’ll take more or less time to get the desired result.
As far as I know, Gas is very common in America, while here in Germany it’s Ceran.
As I mentioned earlier, I use my small wok that gets its heat from a small alcohol-burner, so I guess that a gas stove would be the best choice. Either way, I advise you to experiment a bit beforehand. How long does it take to boil water? You should try with 0,5L, since that is the amount we will use for cooking. For convenience ill rank the heat with numbers. 1 is the lowest setting, while 9 represents the highest.
Once you got a feeling for your heat-source, the real cooking begins.
At first you need to prepare. Prepare as in:
-cube the shallot/red onion (use about 2 medium sized shallots or an onion 2/3 the size of a normal mans fist)
-cut a garlic clove into thin slices (the amount of galic is up to you, you don't have to use any)
Do yourself a favour and put a kitchen towel or something over mouth and nose while you work on anything onion-like. You will know why if you don’t.
-chop the herbs (Parsley, Cress and Basil)
If that is done, the action starts.
Put you wok/frying pan on you stove and fill it with about 0,6L of water. Turn your stove on setting ‘9’ and wait till the water is about to boil, then turn it on ‘3-4’ so that the water stays hot without boiling.
Now you add about 2-3 tablespoons (TS) full of soy-sauce into the water. You’ll see how said water gains a motor-oil like colour. After that comes 1 TS of Peanut-oil.
Now add Salt, Pepper and grind a bit of nutmeg into the soon to be broth.
If that is done, add the chopped herbs, the Garlic and the shallot/red onion. It’s up to you how much of which herb you add. I, for example, use 4-5 TS of Cress, 2 TS of Parsley and 1 TS of Basil.
A little trick I learned is, that if you squish the herbs a little with the flat side of your Knife, the flavours will get accentuated.
If that is done, you’re going to let the broth cook for at least five minutes while you stir it once every minute.
Now you’ll taste the broth and add Spices or Herbs to your liking. Don’t expect too much, most likely it’ll taste a bit bland. That’s where the Bouillon cubes are coming into the picture. Now DON’T put in a whole cube, that would ruin the fine broth you’ve created. Break the Cube apart and just add little bits at a time, so you can fine-tune the flavour.
If the point of ‘hey, that’s not bad at all’ is reached, you toss in the main ingredient.
In this case, Shrimps. Clean the shrimps and let excess-water drip off before you put them into the hot broth. Now turn your Stove to ‘7-8’ to heat up everything. Once you see the bubbles rise from the bottom of your Wok, you’ll add the Eggs. Its up to you how many, but I’ll advise 3.
Now there are two ways to do that. You can open the eggs right into the Wok while stirring the broth. That gives you a ‘snowy’ but still delicious soup, or you crack the egg into a scoop. Said scoop is then used to carefully insert the still fluid egg into the broth without disturbing it. That way you won’t get as much of a ‘snowstorm’ in you soup, but bigger chunks of egg swimming around.
Now you just have to wait till the egg is cooked. Once that happened, turn of your stove.
Now we have the Soup-part of our noodle-soup. The Noodles are mere Childs-play. Prepare them like instructed on the package (if there is no instruction, just boil them in hot salted water till there done).
Once you’ve got the noodles, it’s just a matter of adding said Noodles to your Broth.
Et voilà, there you are. One portion of home-made Ramen. No instant-stuff, no costly jurney to Japan (or the nearest China-town).
As you might have noticed, this recipe is less of a 'You have to use a specific amount of xxx' but more of a 'i guess that much will be ok' kind. Don't be sad if you first attempt fails. I succeded at my 6th try to cook it up. So rejoice! Not even Madara Uchiha would be able to copy your skills!
Bored with the Inner Emo-ness of it’s Host, our most favourite Being of Mass-destruction decides to make things more…entertaining. After all, they say that a Human only uses about 10% of it’s Brain – more then enough room for some Guests!
It goes like this:
The Story start’s at the End of the Battle on the Bridge (Wave-arc). Kyuubi thinks that Naruto brushed death too close for comfort. (The whole “If the Gaki dies, I’ll hit the Bucket too!”-thing)
Somewhat impressed of the late Haku, he decides that Naruto could use someone like him/her (It’s completely up to you) to teach him some much needed lessons.
Haku – and any other Person that will be pulled into the seal – will act as advisors and teachers to Naruto. He can speak to them whenever he wants, either via thoughts or via Meditation ‘in persona’. The time inside the Chamber will be slowed down dramatically, like 1 hour inside = 0,5 seconds outside. That way he will be able to come up with brilliant plans in a fraction of a second. Shikamaru will be pissed.
-No pairing with a Person inside of his Mind
-No Sandaime inside of the Seal
-Naruto get’s no more then two Girls
-Please try to stay in Charakter. If Naruto’s Attitude changes, it’s a slow process.
-You can make Naruto stronger than Canon, but don’t make it unbelieveable, like killing Orochimaru before breakfast.
-There are three People that must be in the Seal: Haku, Tsuchi Kin and Mikoto Uchiha (like in "Hey teme, i know from a...reliable source that you had to wear diapers till you were five!)
The rest is up to you.
If you accept this Challenge, please don’t do it on a whim. I’d like to see more then 2000 Words in 2 Chapters.
Threads of Violence
Naruto a boy with a heavy burden placed upon him before he was even a day old. A boy who’s lifetime duty will be to act as prison for a demon of unimaginable power.
The first thing that came to his mind was ‘how cool is that?!’
So, deciding that this was the skill he’d like to build his reputation as Hokage on, he asked Kyuubi to help him re-create this technique.
Five years later, his Chakra-control meets Med-Nin standards and his wires are able to do pretty much everything. From making him seemingly levitating above ground, to making things fall apart like being cut with scalpels.
(I guess the Vectors of Lucy from ‘Elfen Lied’ would provide a good example for their ability’s, though Naruto’s wires don’t exactly have a range-limit.)
I’d like to see this Naruto as a You-say-that-like-I-give-a-damn Person. You could say he is one of those Guy's who really live in the streets but still have a lot of humor. Contrary to the popular Sasuke-bashing Story’s, I’d like to see this one as a Naruto, Sasuke and Hinata Friendship-Fic. I think they should meet early on, like in the first Year of the Academy, where they become Friends. Hinata will join them roughly two weeks later, cuz both guy's like her non-Fangirlish and nice to be around charakter. If you like NaruHina, it’s up to you, but a deep friendship between them without romance would rock! If she joins them, her confidence grows and makes her into a calm and cool, but still funny and gentle Girl.
Because they like to hang out with each other after school, Sasuke was not there to witness the Massacre of his Clan – which means Itachi doesn’t get a chance to go all Tsukoyomi on him.
So, being somewhat of a social character and not being mindfucked by his brother, his Quest for revenge is far less Crusade-like. And knowing that Naruto and Hinata are watching his back, he won’t go after his brother before he becomes Jounin.
Team placements and Sensei are up to you, but I guess if those three are in a Genin-cell, you’ll can’t stop them with nothing short of a AnBu squad, cuz the learned early on to fight together like a well oiled mashine
Anyway, if you think you’re up to writing this Story, here are some rules.
-No Yaoi! Ever!!!
-No Harem. That’s getting old and - be realistic: Stamina is one thing, not getting crazy with more then one wife is something else entirely.
-Naruto, Sasuke and Hinata will be strong, but not like “I killed a Sannin before I had breakfast!”
-No OCs with more then a passing role
-And if you decide to give him a new wardrobe…please refer from using things like a trench coat with flames at the bottom, Combat Boots or fingerless steel-plated gloves. Why does everybody think that this looks cool?
-If you accept the Challenge, don’t do it on a whim. I expect at least 40k words out of this.
