>This is a quest taking place in an alternate version of the Naruto world during the same time period as the story, with a few notable differences. You will be playing as Kon Karagowa, a Leaf Genin. Your character is defined by your choices, so write-ins are always encouraged. And remember to have fun!

Okay, so, Tenten and Sasuke use wires to slow Gaara down enough for Shikamaru to hit him with a proper Shadow Possession. We drop down from above with a Judgement Kick (tm) which is basically putting a fuckload of our shockwave chakra into a single axe kick from above. Even if this doesn't kill him, it should fuck with his defenses enough for Sasuke to finish him with a Chidori.


>> No.42541291

I just realized looking over the pastebin that we haven't come up with a name for our unique jutsu yet. Part of that I guess is because we still haven't decided on a name for the element, but still. We need something to yell when we do a big awesome attack with it. So what to call our shockwave blast?

>> No.42541295


Gaara roars again. "Are you afraid of me? Come out and fight!"

A ways away you see Temari cowering in fear, trying to stay out of the fight.

Sasuke notices your group and comes over to your hiding spot while Gaara is still searching for him. Gaara is bashing trees apart with his morphed arm with little effort, snarling all the while.

"So you guys made it." Sasuke pants. He looks pretty worn out. "I've used Chidori twice today, and this guy is stronger than ever. I feel like I might just be able to pull it off a third time if I get a few minutes to rest, but I'm drained otherwise."

You assess your situation. Sasuke isn't doing so hot. You, Tenten and Shikamaru are all at decent chakra levels, and Kiba and Akamaru are totally fresh. Gaara's strength is unreal, so you need to avoid taking hits if at all possible, and he's closing in on your position as you speak.

"Well?" Kiba asks. "What do we do?"

>A.Throw everything we've got at Gaara right now

>B.Guerrilla tactics, keep him occupied then get him in position for Sasuke

Also, Judgement Kick. Terrible name

>> No.42541407

Something that occurs to me: He needs to compact the sand in order to defend properly against a Chidori. But compacted sand is shit at taking a shockwave, so he'll be vulnerable to our attacks then. Likewise, if he tries to cushion the blow from one of shockwaves his sand won't be dense enough to block the Chidori. So a one-two punch between us and Sasuke might be able to hurt him. So use Kiba and Tenten to harry him, Shikamaru binds him with shadows while he's distracted, and then Kon and Sasuke move in for the kill.

>> No.42541412


Shock Release.

Which jutsu? The one where we throw a blast? Or the one where we sorta reflect the force of an attack onto the attacker?

>> No.42541426

Seconding this.

>> No.42541428

The blast. Reflecting the force back was kind of unintentional, until we learn to do it consistently I don't think we can call it a jutsu.

>> No.42541446

If we charge in behind Sasuke we can substitute out with him at the last second and strike with a shockwave, allowing Sasuke to follow up.

>> No.42541469


I like Shattershot, but I think that needs to actually shatter something (or if we find out it shattered part of Lee's arm bone(s)) until we call it that.

Like how Chidori was called Lightning Cutter because it actually "cut" through lightning.

>> No.42541494


I'm >>42541469

I mean how the "2nd phase" of Chidori was called Lightning Cutter.

Made a mistake.

>> No.42541498

I still don't like "shock release" at all. Thunder makes more sense as Wind+Lightning, and is a more accurate description of the whole effect rather than the stunning side effect.

It also wouldn't immediately give away the existence of a secondary effect if someone overheard the phrase "Thunder Release".

>> No.42541514

We know it broke Lee's arm badly. That was explicitly stated. Also it's a concussive force, which was also explicitly stated.

"Shattershot" would make sense.

>> No.42541527


Thunder Release sounds more like Storm Release to me, though I do like the "hidden" secondary effect part.

>That was explicitly stated.

No. It was stated that he messed up Lee's arm badly.

Never said broken.

>> No.42541561

How else do you "mess up" an arm, anon? We didn't give him a cramp.

And Storm is Lightning+Water, so Thunder for Lightning+Wind seems fine. I don't see at all what the problem is.

>> No.42541573

What about "Force Release"? I'm not overly keen on Thunder release because it seems more like a derivation of lightning, rather than it's own thing. Not to mention it's closeness with the next Thunder-god; Tenten

>> No.42541578


>Give Sasuke his sword

Will this help?

>> No.42541591

Could be nerve and muscle damage from the electric component of the technique causing spasming. Though we probably did cause at least some bone damage.

>> No.42541616

How about Impact Release?

>> No.42541620


I agree, but it was still not explicitly stated that his arm was broken. Just "messed up", which implies broken but is not explicitly stated.


Shattershot is a good name.


Force keeps reminding me of the Force from Star Wars.


It could, if he uses it to extend Chidori somehow and stabs Gaara in deep.

>> No.42541641

>B.Guerrilla tactics, keep him occupied then get him in position for Sasuke

Give Sasuke his sword.

>> No.42541643

>It could, if he uses it to extend Chidori somehow and stabs Gaara in deep.
Nah, the reason we're holding onto Sasuke's sword for him in the first place is because he doesn't know how to use Chidori with it yet. So that won't work.

>> No.42541671

Not only does that sound too much like Star Wars for comfort, it's not as descriptive. Thunder is literally the result of Lightning and Wind/air interacting, it's as accurately descriptive as you can get without suggesting its stunning effect.

>> No.42541689

>because he doesn't know how to use Chidori with it yet.

Now might be the right time to try.

Or we can if shit gets even more dangerous later.

"If Tenten can trip Gaara up with wires, then Shikamaru can grab him with the Shadow Possession Jutsu." you start. "Then Sasuke and I can double-team him with our strongest moves."

"You don't what to try that too soon." Sasuke interrupts. "If you want me to do another Chidori, you're going to have to stall him for a bit. One you can hear the sound of birds chirping, that'll be your cue."

Shikamaru speaks next. "Which means we'll have to distract him until then. Let's just go take potshots at him while Sasuke gets ready. Try to keep away from his attacks if you can, you won't be able to take many."

All of you except Sasuke make a break out of your hiding place, and take positions around Gaara.

"What is this?" He growls. "You think your friends will be able to defeat me? You are only making yourselves weaker by relying on each other! You can only become strong by looking out for your self!"

Tenten throws some kunai, but Gaara blocks with his morphed arm, and they are enveloped in the sand. He launches them back at Tenten, who is forced to dodge. Gaara then launches himself with his tail towards Shikamaru absurdly fast. Shikamaru doesn't look like he'll be able to get out of the way.

Shock is more of a shockwave.

You quickly pull out your kyoketsu-shoge and toss it around Shikamaru's leg. You're able to pull him out of the way just in time to avoid Gaara's attack.

You notice that Gaara's body is slowly becoming more and more enveloped by the sand.

As he's tuning back around, Kiba and Akamaru launch a Fang Over Fang at him, but his arm and tail form into a shield around him, preventing any damage.

Once the attack stops, Gaara goes back on the attack, swinging at Kiba and Akamaru. Kiba takes a hit blocking Akamaru, and hits a tree.

At that, Gaara starts to shake and grab his head. He lets out another scream as more sand covers his body.

What if we got a reverse summon on Gaara?

That would require Tenten getting in close, and she's neither fast enough nor strong enough to handle the job.

>> No.42542204

Also getting in under the sand, which I just can't see us managing.

>> No.42542215

I doubt it, since the sand probably counts as an extension of his body, being a sealed tailed beast and all.

When he uses chidori, she can poof him out of harms way.

You head over to Kiba and check on him.

"I'm okay." he coughs as he gets up. You can see a bit of blood running from his mouth, but he manages to stand on his own.

You glance at Sasuke, and he's still not quite ready.

Gaara however, is now completely covered in his sand, in the form of what seems to truly be a monster.

You try to run interference and use your speed to keep him distracted.

As you jump back and forth dodging blows, you taunt him. "I don't know what you're tlking about, Gaara. If we were alone we would have already been killed. It's because we're working as a team that we can become stronger."

"Shut up!" Gaara roars. "Sand Shuriken!"

From his arm, Gaara shoots sand projectiles at you, moving at a blinding speed. You try to dodge, but some manage to glance you.

Gaara looks like he's about to attack someone else, and he turns around. That's when you hear the sound. Chirping birds.

You begin to build up your chakra for your attack.

While Tenten gets her wires ready, Kiba and Akamaru use Fang Over Fang to keep Gaara still. Gaara however, is having none of it, as he just bashes both Kiba and Akamaru to the ground. They don't get up.

At that moment, Tenten's wires envelop Gaara, who isn't amused. He takes a deep breath. "Wind Release: Sandstorm Devastation!"

Clouds of sand burst from Gaara's mouth and blow both the wires and Tenten away. Tenten hits a tree, and stays down.

In the time this is happening, Shikamaru manages to grab Gaara in his Shadow Possession Jutsu. It's clearly only for a moment, as Gaara is already struggling to break free, but it's enough.

Sasuke comes running towards Gaara, Chidori in hand behind him. You approach too, readying your attack.

You run at the temporarily immobilized Gaara and ready your fist. As Sasuke approaches from below, you jump up to strike him from above.

You punch and release your chakra right into Gaara, the sand covering him wobbling and falling out of place.

As Gaara is stunned from your attack, Sasuke comes straight in for the Chidori right into Gaara's chest.

Gaara doesn't react for a bit, but Sasuke immediately falls and passes out as soon as his move has hit.

"Guh." you hear Gaara grunt, He coughs up blood. The sand around him begins to quiver around his body. You notice that Gaara's eyes are closed. He must be unconscious, but the sand is still moving.

In fact, at that point the sand begins to erupt upwards, destroying everything in its path. You have to move, but your teammates may be hit. Shikamaru is the only one who is still mobile.

Just sayin', if this doesn't work, can we please bail and try to keep everyone alive? Stopping Gaara is waaaay above our paygrade, and he's well outside the village now.

Fuck no. It much more closely resembles piano wire, which in the cultural zeitgeist is associated with use as a garrote.

You quickly grab Sasuke and head to safety.

"Shikamaru, grab the others!" you shout.

He makes for Kiba and Akamaru and hauls them out of the way, but you don't see what happens to Tenten before something huge lands where you were all standing.

However, a figure immediately appears next to you and sets Tenten down.

Still conscious, she looks up at the boy. "Neji? Is that you?"

"Yahoo!" it yells. "I'm free! Hop you're all ready to die!"

The monster begins to hop around a bit, causing massive damage to the landscape.

Shikamaru lands next to you, Kiba and Akamaru in tow.

"There is no way we can fight that thing." Shikamaru says bluntly. "I'm taking Kiba and getting out of here. Tenten, you should take Sasuke and do the same. You two should come too, there's nothing we can do now."

"Wait." Neji interrupts. He turns to you. "That Sand boy is on top of the monster's head. That has to be his weak point.

"You're right." you agree. You have a duty to protect the village at any cost. "I'll help you. But you better have a plan, or when we die, I'm kicking your ass."

Shikamaru and Tenten wish you luck before they leave. Now you're alone with Neji before a rampaging monster.

"I can reach his head and find a way to stop him." Neji explains. "I just need you to run interference for me so that monster doesn't take me out during the ascent. Maybe use your special release or something."

You try to get the monster's attention. "Hey you giant cat! It time for you to get your just deserts!"

The monster stops it's rampaging and looks towards you before chuckling. "Oh so you think you're funny do ya? Have a laugh at this!"

The monster swings at you. As it does, you release all of the chakra you can, to your absolute limit.

The blast is huge, and blows away the monster's leg, knocking it off balance. It has to catch itself with the arm it was going to hit you with, while it gathers the sand for its leg again.

"Oh, you're gonna get it now!" the monster barks at you. It takes a deep breath, its stomach swelling. "Wind Release: Air Bullet!"

A giant blast of air shoots out of it's mouth, right towards you.

As for holding him, one half decent seal user gets to him before he recovers - like, say, Jiraiya, the infamous seal master, who has a vested interest in the security of the village - and he's not fighting his way out of a paper bag.

Thats why I said "most" of the kill guys.

I can see how you point is logical but I don't think that it is very in character.

We killed Gato because he was a current threat and an unrepentant criminal, whilst we saved Haku because we realised he had issues that were leading to him acting that way, Garaa is the same and I thought that Kon would have known that from his interactions with him.

No, I mean from a narrative perspective. He served no purpose to this fight other than to make it more frustrating and unsatisfying.

I'm gonna tell you right now, if you had tried that without Neji you would have been dead.

Neither Shikamaru nor Tenten could have distracted him in their states and would have gotten crushed, and you would have gotten impaled by sand spikes as you tried to climb.

Neji could do it because of his byakugan.

Tenten was barely conscious at the time. I don't disagree with you that Neji is full of shit for literally using us as bait without telling us up front, it's just that we really were in a bad spot. I'll only be salty about it if Tenten gets all over Neji's dick about it.

Is there gonna be a Hinata Rescue Ark?

Did Uncle's Ramen shop survive?

Is he finally going to be accepting of our going down the shinobi path?

How likely is it Him or Lee will believe us ripping off Shukaku's leg?

Because Haku is pleasant to be around, and he's another guy who's the only one with their respective kekkei genkai. We can bond and shit.

At least Haku actually seems to like Ino, so it wouldn't be as annoying as Sasuke and Sakura on the same team.

Also Lee and Neji should be welcome to be on the broteam.

Because he seems like a nice guy who listens to people and genuinely tries to be helpful. And then he does shit like volunteering to take on teams of higher-ranked ninja solo. And then he comes back.

What reasonable girl wouldn't fall for that?
