I have to say that I love the whole 'rot' conversation. It's succinct, self-explanatory, and feels organic.

Also, I love all your fics :3

Hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng, god yes.

Another crappy cliche thrown into the pyre.

The beautiful, beautiful pyre.

The only thing good about the banishment plot line is that it is impossible in canon. Like many fan developed the-village-acts-idiotic-in-its-policies-toward-Naruto ideas this story relies entirely upon the plot device of a village council, especially a civilian council.

Nothing of the sort existed in canon. There wasn't even a ninja council, much less a civilian council with real authority or power.

Translations do terrible things to fan perceptions. The word for Hiruzen Sarutobi's two advisors from his youth, who advice and assist Sarutobi in running the village, is most commonly translated as "councilor". And it's an accurate translation, though "advisor" would have been a better choice of word.

I say better, because using the word "councilor" for his two old teammates gave the impression to fans that there was a council upon which those councilors sat.

In truth they were not councilors as in "those who sit in a council" but councilors as in "those who offer advise and council".

Seriously. The title "councilor" for these two old advisors is the ONLY canon reference that was used by fans to generate the vast piles of crappy "the evil village council did xyz against (Naruto/Anko/whoever)" stories.

I agree that your story makes much more sense than 'banishment' storyline.

Great work on this one shot here. I loved how you did this story.

I hate this storyline myself. Ninja are mercenaries that sell their loyalty to the highest bidder. They lie, cheat, seduce, kill, etc they use everything at their disposal to fulfill a contract. Thusly, How does it make sense for the ninja to hate their version of a nuclear warhead? I can see civilians being ignorant, but they would never sway the military to give up such a weapon.

This oneshot is more plausible than this whole genre of fics Ive seen.

The whole banishment cliché doesn't make a lick of sense when you think about it. Nor does the "normal childhood" thing. Naruto is a living WMD. You do not toss those away, and you train the shit out of them because you and everyone you've ever met may have your life depend upon his skills one day.

This one was well done and showed what should have been done long ago... RB

I'm going to see what else I haven't seen yet

i finally noticed in your an that you thought there wasn't anything recyclable in this oneshot i would have to say that i see it differently this could be the start of a really good au where naruto acually gets help and respect from konoha with alot of problems solved just by having the civ council gone otherwise nice oneshot

Nicely done; though a bit of a shame you can't continue this. Honestly I think doing so would be rather challenging, as you have deftly applied occoms razor to the issue of the village council hating Naruto. That sort of eliminates a very useful plot device.
