A/N: I always wanted to write a story 'what if' with Minato and Kushina in it; and this was a result. This one will be multi-chapter (no worries, they will be short). Ahead of you is how the sealing came to be (for we can't have a party without Kurama, right?).

"What the hell?" Minato Namikaze, the Yellow Flash of Konoha, the Yondaime Hokage and husband of one Kushina Uzumaki shouted. He was utterly and totally confused; the scene that happened just minutes ago did not happen! That mad man did not just kidnap his wife, extracted the fox and set it loose on the village! The village he was supposed to protect, damn it!
He was just about ready to panic, pull his hair and eyes out when the most miraculous thing took place; the fox, Kyuubi no Kitsune, the most feared Biju of them all, paused. It paused! If he wasn't so busy trying to reassure his weeping son and wobbly wife, he would've fainted.
Anyways, the fox paused and sent a malicious (though to him it seemed questioning) look at him. No, not at him. At his baby. At his little, tiny, just born baby.
It looked like Kushina noticed this predicament also, for she immediately stood up and scooped the little Naruto; sending a bone-chilling glare to the fox. Figures, the only person in the village mad enough to glare down a Biju were an Uzumaki.
Now, don't misunderstand; Minato adored his wife. He was smitten by her guts and attitude since their pre-genin days. He just couldn't help but pray, a little bit, that his son inherited both his appearance and character. Though, he could cope with 'dattebane'. It was endearing, after all.
Suddenly, Kyuubi turned laughed; that's right, the big bad fox laughed! Fairly certain that it wasn't the psychotic kind of it, though he still had some doubts, Minato unconsciously relaxed. Sadly, not for long- the fox started speaking/ growling:
"You've always been an idiot, brat…" The gigantic fox declared, taking small strides towards the Namikaze-Uzumaki family. Kushina tightened her grip on the baby; Minato swiftly covered their forms with his, the kunai already in his hands. However, nothing of this seemed to alarm baby. Instead of yelling and weeping, Naruto started gurgling, raising his arms towards the Biju. Both parents shared an incredulous look; what person in their right mind acted like this. It seemed like, like… Naruto wanted to be hugged by that monster!
They froze, hearing an undeniably cooing sound slipping past the Biju's lips; which were dangerously close, by the way. Naruto let out a happy shriek, his little arms weekly reaching for the red fox.
"But I guess I'm an even bigger one for trusting you." Minato had no bloody idea what the fox meant; but at the next moment, a red, fiery chakra was flying in the air and flowing towards his baby son! Kushina tried not to scream, but it was really hard; the chakra was burning her arms.
"Relax, puny humans, I will not harm any of your shinobi." The Yondaime wanted to believe him, he really did; but still, this was Kyuubi we are talking about! Sensing his discomfort, Kyuubi grinned. "You have your son to thank for that."
And without further ado, he disappeared, living the Yondaime Hokage with his wife, Kushina Uzumaki Namikaze and their son, Naruto Namikaze- Konoha's newest Jinchuuriki. Who was giggling for all he was worth.
Chapter II Preview: Naruto has just become a Kyuubi's Jinchuuriki and had a seal to boot (the one Minato initially wanted to use). Of course, everybody was confused as hell, and little Naru-chan, with his baby talk and a hard wall around his mind wasn't helping them at all. But, Minato mussed, they were alive; which was unexpected, but a big plus. And Kushina wasn't bothered that much with fox trying to possess their son, so why should he be?
