I think it had something to do with why nobody has brought up
pre-existing conditions by this point. After all, even before she had
her run in with Anko, Sakura's 'natural' response to genjutsu
was notably... odd.
Hmm. While true, if I recall correctly most of the observers seemed
put it down to Ino just running out of chakra, except for Kakashi who
instead thought that it was more Sakura's fighting spirit than Ino's
IIRC, you've had Ino tell her dad about the weird experience, but no
else would know except for her and Sakura, and since Sakura doesn't
to see anything unusual about it (or at least not that she's willing
share with anyone), I'm not sure how it would come up at this point.
Hmm... perhaps, but when Anko first captured Sakura, there was a minute
or two where 'Inner Sakura,' or something similar to her, was actually
in control of Sakura's physical body, while 'Outer Sakura' was fighting
off Ino in a battle of wills. At the time, Sakura was pretty freaked out
by it (though, strangely, she's never seemed too disturbed by Ino's 'two
Heh.... i'm not so much about telling the story 'right' as telling it
that not everybody acts like an idiot ^_^;
Six of one, half-dozen of the other, I believe. :)
I understand. I tend to do the same to the characters I like, also.
Such a twisted expression of 'love' grows from anime fandom -_-;...
It's fairly explicable, though. People tend to write stories about
characters they like, and being the main character of a story tends to
attract a certain amount of... unpleasantness.
This is true; it's not easy being the center of the universe,
(The idea basically involves swapping the ages and roles in the
Neji and Itachi, so Neji slaughters the whole Hyuuga Clan except
Hinata and joins Akatsuki while Itachi is in Team Gai. It'll
never get written, since I've yet to figure out what the _plot_
Haha! Having no plot has never stopped _me_ from writing a fic... but
then, i've never _finished_ a fic either ^_^;.
After a number of stories that I started that didn't go anywhere, I've
put myself on a strict rule that I won't spend any time writing a
until I know what the ending is.
Otherwise, I tend to run out of gas after a few chapters.
That would probably be a good precaution for me to take as well, but i'm
not sure i'd know a real 'plot' if it snuck up and bit me in the
That is an idea i haven't
heard before, and i do wonder what sort of twist this change would
introduce in the Naruto world. The Hyuuga, despite their abilities,
aren't nearly as feared as the Uchiha were, i think...
Yeah, it leads to some interesting changes. For one, Orochimaru
probably never leaves Akatsuki and therefore the Hidden Sound never
exist. And he has his pick of Sharingan-capable bodies to steal...
and... well, I don't want to spoil too much, in case I do write it one
That's fairly unlikely though, both because of the lack of a plot and
ending, and because I've yet to come up with a good sense of how the
Rock Lee/Itachi relationship would work that's not boringly similar to
the canon Lee/Neji rivalry. (And also, there's other ideas I want to
get to first.) But maybe one day...
Well, we don't know how Itachi would have turned out if his situation
were slightly different; the gap between him and Sasuke would only be
one year, which means his parents wouldn't have been able to spend so
much time just on him, and he might have ended up closer to Sasuke.
Under those circumstances, he might have become a friendly, responsible
older brother, which would really change the dynamic ^_^;. Meanwhile,
Sasuke's brother complex would probably have been a bit different, as
Itachi would still probably be a bigger genuis than he is, but any
rivalry would be much more immediate.
I hope Suiren makes it to that part of the story; I have a feeling
would be very... interesting. :)
If Suiren gets that far, it will likely have already deviated from
by quite a bit. I've got some ideas... but i have to get there, first
Well, good luck with that. :)
Anko... well, who knows?
I honestly wonder if we'll ever see her again -_-;...
Ibiki got a cameo lately, so Kishimoto hasn't completely forgotten
about that set of characters. Unfortunately, though, despite being so
much fun Anko's really not that important of a character in canon.
Sadly, this is so...
And we'll almost certainly never get a canon answer on what Anko's
Cursed Seal Level 2 form would look like, leaving it up in the air
whether that's unique to each person or shared by everyone with the
Gah, i hope it's different; Sasuke's level two form is kinda
Who says the target would be running around free? I figure, you
the target and replace it with a bunshin that can act like the
bleed like a human, is controlled by _you_, and can be detonated like
bomb, and you've got a neat little disposible assassin...
Very true. Just didn't think it through far enough, I suppose.
Incidentally, IIRC at some point you mention Sakura instructing the
clone as to her chores; it might be a good idea to change/add to that
mention the orders having to be relayed through Anko or Anko
the clone to take orders from Sakura. As is, I don't think it's
clear that the clone is under Anko's control.
Hmm... good point. All this being said, though, i've thought about it a
bit more, and just saying that the clone is 'under Anko's control' kind
of breaks the setting a bit ^_^;. I mean, if you can make a kagebunshin
of someone else that's under your complete control, the technique would
be the _perfect_ interrogation technique. Just make a clone and then
make it tell you whatever you want to know...
So now i think i will say that the clone is _not_ under Anko's control,
but not under Sakura's control either. The technique is probably
designed to create a 'body double' that can be fooled into thinking it's
the real deal, but because of circumstances, this clone knows that it's
not the real Sakura, and so it will go along with Anko and Sakura's
plan. I wonder if it would be appropriate for its memories to return to
Sakura after it is destroyed...
...oh my. Just think of the antics Anko could get up to with a
Sakura-clone that's under her control... particularly since Ino is
to go meet with the clone... :)
Hehehe... that could be really bad for Sakura ^_^;;...
Though, if i use the above explanation... it could still be really bad
for Sakura, as the Sakura in Suiren doesn't exactly have a great track
record for acting reasonable and mature toward in these sorts of
*Okay, so I'm just a clone... dammit! This is _so_ unfair!*
Just as a guess, she might try to get back at Anko somehow, considering
that she has nothing to lose ^_^;;...
