Hey Guys, it's Dom here. So yeah, thanks for all the PM's that you've sent for me; I've really enjoyed reading the many suggestions that you had for me. A lot of them were really cool and interesting so I had a fun time reading through them. This first one comes from a bro by the username: Elzanite. Their idea was "Naruto acquires the ability to possess other people, similar to the Yamanaka clan. But,in the beginning, he can't control his power and every day or week (your choice) he possesses the person nearest to him for the entire day/week. This could lead to some hilarious moments and lead to some very interesting interactions. Also, while in possession of someone else, his body is in 'autopilot' where it acts exactly how he would. Naruto would eventually learn to control his powers and its up to you how he received them." I thought it sounded cool and when I gave it a shoot, I had a lot of fun writing it as it was a lot more comedic then my other stories are, a rad change of genre for me and a challenge too. So yeah, this One-Shot is for you bro, hope it's up to your standards. And yeah, like I said, this is to help jump start my creativity so don't be shy and send me something cool or interesting alright? It doesn't have to be Naruto or Fairy Tail or that kinda stuff. Though, as a heads up I don't know anything about Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Twilight, Supernatural, Lord of the Rings, Etc. Thanks ya'll and hope ya enjoy what I've got to offer.
A Soul's Transmigration - Elzanite
"Damn it, why? Why today of all days?" A feminine voice muttered out in a tone of mixed irritation and begrudging resignation, belonging to a rather attractive albeit aggravated woman in her thirties.
While seemingly a sudden shout due to fatigue or some other sort of stressor, it was far from that as the true cause of this woman's dilemma laid not in her mind but her soul; for the soul of this woman was in fact the soul of a certain twelve year old aspiring blonde genin in the making, Naruto Uzumaki. What was the cause of this strange predicament? The cause of this phenomenon is still unknown even to the very blonde who laid at the center of it all.
Many years ago, a horrible beast known as the Kyuubi attacked the village, Konohagakure, causing an immense amount of devastation. The abrupt attack caused the loss of many lives, both civilian and ninja. As all efforts to stop the beast seemed to fall and fail, that is, until the Yondaime Hokage, Minato Namikaze, sealed the beast away into a young infant at the price of his soul. That infant, known as the jinchūriki of the Kyuubi to none but the Yondaime Hokage, was young Naruto. At first, young Naruto wasn't aware of this ability of his as it didn't manifest until he was just leaving the orphanage that had taken him, and countless other orphans left in the wake of the Kyuubi's attack, in.
A few days following that, he had awoken not in his body but the body of the kind older man who had helped repair parts of the orphanage that he had grown up in. At first, he had assumed it was a dream, that is until he was greeted with a good morning kiss from the man's wife. It was that exact moment when young Naruto, a child at the tender age of 9, began his biweekly excursions of swapping bodies between a seemingly random array of people.
(Flashback - Three Years Ago)
(Scene Change - Konoha: Daiku Family Home - Master Bedroom)
"Uwaaa!" Naruto, in the body of Takumi Daiku, yelped as he jumped back after the kiss he received from the man's wife, Kanezashi Daiku.
"Honey? Is something the matter?" Kanezashi asked in a concerned manner, her eyes filled with equal concern as Naruto pinched himself in an attempt to wake himself from the dream-like situation he found himself in.
"W-What? Where am I? This isn't my apartment!" He said as he glanced around in a panic, causing Kanezashi to become even more worried as she moved to see if anything was wrong with him.
"Honey, what's wrong? You're home, it's me! Kanezashi!" She said in a kind and gentle manner, moving to take a hold of his hand as Naruto stiffened from the contact.
For young Naruto, his only interaction with the female population was mainly with the female orphans that grew up with him. Though, most of that was being teased by them; many of them calling him cute, fox-like, adorable and being subject to the coddling of a few of the kind, older women including the caretaker of the orphanage who was like a grandmother to the children there. For the young blonde, his mind stalled as it tried to decipher what to do in such a situation; unable to rationalize what was happening due to his lack of knowledge and experience on the matter.
It was at that moment that Naruto explained, to the best of his ability, what had happened. At first, Kanezashi had assumed it was a prank being played by her husband on her, but when she saw how frightened and confused her husband's eyes were, she threw all those thoughts out the window as she escorted the frightened blonde to the hospital and in turn they turned him over to the Hokage, Hiruzen Sarutobi.
At first, they assumed that it was perhaps a strange and abrupt awakening of Yamanaka blood in the blonde. But when they saw absolutely no traces of said clan's bloodline in Naruto, they dismissed it as perhaps an ability like that of a Kekkei Genkai, a Bloodline Limit. But having never heard of such an ability, not even in a series of archives that documented the known Kekkei Genkai and the clans associated with them collected over the years, they found nothing even similar to what Naruto had displayed.
Because of that, the Ninja Council had convened and unanimously agreed that the blonde was perhaps the single survivor of an unknown clan with an intriguing ability, perhaps a distant sister clan of their own Yamanaka. Once things were settled, Naruto, who was still residing within Takumi's body, was placed overnight in the research ward of Konoha's T&I Division. While there, he met and quickly became friends with Morino Ibiki and Inoichi Yamanaka; the two men becoming a bit endeared to the blonde. At the same time, they found that Naruto's original body was still in fact active, seemingly unaware of what was happening with his other self.
Once day turned to night, Naruto awoke back in his own body while Takumi awoke back in his. For the older man, he had no recollections about what had happened to him, likening it to being in a deep and comfortable sleep; dreaming of happy times with his wife and daughter. For Naruto, he had acquired both the memories of his physical self and the self that had taken over Takumi's body. Following that, Naruto was placed under observation; having at least one Anbu operative shadowing his person. From what was found over the course of a few months, Naruto would swap bodies on a biweekly basis for a period of twenty four hours, though the day of the swap would alternate with each swap. Another interesting point of disconnect was that Naruto's physical body was completely sentient, going about its daily life like nothing had ever occurred.
Once everything was said and done, Naruto was given the offer of being registered as the sole heir and survivor of his own clan; though the blonde turned down the offer, even after the promise of wealth and influence. As with what happened afterwards, when he awoke Naruto would immediately leave for the T&I Division before checking himself in, the staff having quickly taken a liking to the cheery blonde who always brought a smile in such a dreary building.
(Flashback - End)
(Scene Change - Konoha: Mishimi Residence)
For Naruto, he had just awoken in the body of Misami Mishimi on the most important day of his academy life, the day of his genin examination. Today was the day that he was going to officially pass and move onwards into the world as a true shinobi, but it appeared that fate had a very different idea.
"Why... Just why..." Naruto groaned in a feminine tone as he facepalmed, flinching a bit at how soft Misami's hands were compared to his own callous and rough palms.
Looking down, he stiffened and became a bit pink when he saw that all she had worn to bed was a light blue negligee that was just thin enough to reveal the matching underwear beneath it. For a young teen boy, this would be a rather tempting situation given that Misami was still unmarried at a rather... peculiar age. Her well proportioned albeit slightly plump curves being an all to tantalizing sight for the blonde, Naruto snapped his eyes shut before he ran to the closet and grabbed the bulkiest and most concealing clothes that he could find.
Years of periodically swapping bodies having forged his patience, discipline and self control; he kept his eyes forward as he showered, dried off and changed; though, when it came to unhooking and hooking the bras of his female swaps he was still completely lost as to how they were able to efficiently get them on and off with such little trouble.
"Seriously, you've gotta be crazy skilled to get these things on and off without any problems..." He absently said in a irritated tone as he fumbled with the hook of the bra, restraining the urge to just leave it be and head out without it.
But the idea and very real possibility of Misami hunting him down and ending his life for shaming her stopped all ideas of that happening. After a few more minutes of clumsily fumbling around, he managed to properly hook the bra and finish getting ready; at least trying to make Misami look presentable for the day ahead by doing her hair and applying a light bit of makeup.
"There. Wow, I'd date Misami-san if I was old enough," Naruto quipped as he finished fixing the hair of the woman he was inhabiting, blushing a bit when he saw how attractive she looked from up close.
"Enough of that. Bad thoughts, bad Naruto. Danzo-jiji taught you better." Naruto repeated to himself like a mantra as he shook his head, quickly heading towards the T&I Division while hoping his other self was ready for the exam.
(Scene Change - Konoha: Konoha Ninja Academy)
Konoha's Ninja Academy is a huge building in Konohagakure located directly at the base of the Hokage Mountain. It is where prospective ninja are trained and where official ninja receive their assignments, founded by the Nidaime Hokage out of military necessity.
As with any school, students of Konoha's Ninja Academy are taught a core curriculum of reading, writing, mathematics, science, geography, etc. These lessons are typically framed in a ninja-context, and in fact are learned at all in order to facilitate later instruction in tactics and strategy. Students learn the Shinobi Rules, how to strengthen their minds and bodies, and receive special lectures from veteran shinobi.
They are taken through the handling of ninja weapons and tools, like shuriken and kunai, learning how to throw and wield them through target practice, as well as instructed on the basics of trap-setting. Academy students are also taught about chakra and how to use it, hand seals.
Shinobi classes can be broken into the basic levels of: Taijutsu, classes which serve as the Ninja Academy's equivalent of physical education. In taijutsu class, students are engaged in physical activities to help train their bodies and develop their stamina. Sparring is common.
Ninjutsu classes provide the bulk of what potential ninja learn at the Academy. Students are taught about chakra, how to manipulate it and use hand seals, and ultimately how to use techniques such as the Henge no Jutsu and the Bunshin no Jutsu.
Genjutsu classes are focused less on how to create illusions and more on how they work. Students are taught how to determine if they are trapped in a genjutsu, and then how to release themselves from it.
With the students now, they were preparing for the upcoming examination; awaiting the call to step forward and prove their metal at becoming fully fledged ninja. Graduating from the Academy usually consists of taking both a written exam and a practical exam, administered by a chūnin instructor, to earn enough marks to pass. Upon graduating, students receive aHitai-ate, proof of their achievement.
"Well, I hope you're all ready! We'll begin calling you all down one by one, so please get ready!" Iruka Umino called out as a smirk crossed his face in a failing attempt to stop a grin, before him were his students who would soon be turning into full fledged ninja after all.
"Like Iruka said, we'll begin calling you down once we've got everything set up. So please be patient and wait it out for a bit alright? Soon enough you'll all be certified ninja!" Mizuki called out as a shiver of excitement crossed the faces of the students before them.
"Hmph, I'm gonna rock this test! Right, Akamaru!" A feral looking youth, Kiba Inuzuka, asked his canine companion, a white pup named Akamaru.
"Arf!" Akamaru responded in the positive, getting a grin from his partner and a few snickers from his friends and classmates beside him.
"Oi! What's so funny, huh?" He shouted at them, making Choji Akimichi, Shikamaru Nara and Shino Aburame snicker harder, though Shino opted to just adjust his glasses.
"Nothing, Kiba! We're just as psyched as you are, that's all!" Choji quipped as he snuck another chip into his mouth, being mindful to avoid having it confiscated like the many times before.
"Choji's right, we're just you know, getting psyched is all." Shikamaru added in a lazy albeit mirthful tone, Kiba's eye twitching at the hidden jab.
"I agree, you should focus a bit more on the exam at hand Inuzuka-san." Shino added as Kiba turned to shout at him, only to receive a piece of chalk colliding with his head which caused him to stop mid-shout.
The four young teens were the current heirs of the Inuzuka, Akimichi, Nara and Aburame clans. Near the top of the class, they each had their strengths and weakness that prevented them from reaching the top of their class like the pair of raven haired youths sitting near the front of the room.
"Tsk. Idiot." One of the geniuses of the year, Sasuke Uchiha scoffed as he shook his head before resting it on his folded hands eliciting a cry from his fan club.
One of the last remaining Uchiha, Sasuke was among the elite in his class and of his generation. His grades among the top of the year, both academically and physically,
"You're a shoe-in to pass, Sasuke-kun!" A pink haired young lady, Sakura Haruno praised as she stared at him with adoration present in his eyes.
Sakura Haruno was among the brightest of her generation, being much more knowledgeable then she was physically adept. While not in the leagues of the classes' top geniuses like Shikamaru, she was still among the top in her class when it came to theoretical knowledge.
"What? No jab or anything, Ino-pig?" Sakura sneered as she turned to the platinum blonde who everyone knew the pink haired girl viewed as a rival, both as a kunoichi and maiden in love.
But when she didn't hear a retort from her rival, she turned and widened her eyes before her jaw hung open when she saw something she'd never imagine she'd see in her life. Her rival, the other number one known fan girl of Sasuke Uchiha, Ino Yamanaka, was not even looking in the direction of said Uchiha. Instead, Ino was looking at the most mysterious and enigmatic person in the class, Naruto Uzumaki.
"H-Huh? Oh, sorry Sakura! Did you say something?" Ino asked in a completely surprised and apologetic manner, Sakura's mouth and the mouths of everyone else who knew the rather abrasive blonde dropping when they heard how genuinely apologetic she sounded.
"N-No... It's just... Nevermind." Sakura started before she stopped herself, slowly returning to a happier and much more comfortable place as she returned her attention to Sasuke.
Seeing her rival and best friend turn away, Ino blinked a bit in confusion before returning to secretly gaze at the enigmatic blonde that had stolen her heart all those years ago when they first met. Ino wasn't sure why the others in her class assumed that she held similar affection to Sasuke as her best friend did, after all it was only one time that she called out to Sasuke in an effort to cheer him on before it turned into a cheering contest between her and her best friend. She had believed it was just for fun and to encourage their classmate, but after that little moment, she had skyrocketed in the ranks of the Sasuke fan club to her chagrin and embarrassment. No, the person who stole her heart was the quietest and most soft spoken of the entire class; having said little more then ten words unless directed to explain something, in which he showed incredible understanding and rationalization.
When she had met him, having gone with her father after pestering him countless times to see him work, she was introduced to the blonde in question. It was right then, when her pale aquamarine connected with his bewitching cerulean that she knew he was the one for her. It didn't take long for Ino to get as much info about the blonde, within reason, from her father. When she heard that he had an ability similar to her family's, she brightened up considerably at the prospect of becoming his bride; after all, their child would no doubt be the most beautiful and skilled at mind manipulation. A bit lost in her thoughts, when she returned to reality and saw Naruto staring at her with a bit of confusion all color drained from her face as she quickly turned away in complete and utter mortification.
" Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god! Ino you idiot! You looked like a completely creepy stalker!" Ino cried in her mind repeatedly, letting her head fall and hit the desk as she tried to make herself as small as possible to avoid the uncomfortable gaze of her crush.
"Is something wrong with Ino-san? She was looking at me like she needed something." Naruto thought with a bit of concern, making a mental note to check on her once the exams were finished.
While Ino was wallowing in shame and embarrassment, two other girls were exchanging glances between the two as a bit of jealousy marred their eyes. The two in question were on differing sides of the popularity spectrum; Satsuki Uchiha and Hinata Hyuga. Satsuki Uchiha, twin sister of Sasuke and younger by just a hair, was another of the elite. Being ranked among the top aspiring kunoichi of her class and generation, she was also among the top of the popularity totem pole. Being as beautiful as her mother, Mikoto Uchiha, she was among the most attractive girls of the academy; many being shot down in a rather ruthless manner after asking for a date with the ravenette. Unfortunately for them, her eyes were surprisingly fixated on the enigmatic blonde that always sat, ate and stayed alone.
What was it exactly that drew Satsuki to him? Not even the young Uchiha truly knew herself, there was just a certain charm to him, a certain feeling, that just made her feel attracted to him. It did help that he was her first friend and that he was cute, the whisker marks on his cheeks reminding her of a fox; a trait that Satsuki found absolutely adorable though she'd rather die then admit that openly. But deep in her heart, Satsuki knew what that reason was, after all, he was the one who first extended a hand of friendship to her without any strings attached.
(Flashback - A Few Years Ago)
It was just after they had entered the academy, Satsuki was eating lunch alone as she had done since she entered. While her twin often ate alone, he was always joined by his heard of fan girls in training, coo'ing and trying to get him to smile. For Satsuki though, her rather frigid and off-putting aura ceased all forms of advancement from the young boys of her class. The only ones who had attempted to befriend her were only in it for the wealth, power and influence that their parents had promised them should Satsuki marry them. Having heard the very words leave the mouths of their parents by coincidence while passing through the streets on her way home a few days ago.
"Guess Tou-san was right... People never just want to be friends, they always want something else." Satsuki muttered in a slightly hurt and lonely tone, quickly shaking her head to rid it of all thoughts before steeling herself.
As she continued eating her bento, she paused when she saw an unfamiliar yet familiar blonde approach her. Sighing, she was about to tell him off but her words died in her throat when he completely ignored her and sat beside her. Blinking, Satsuki just watched as he seemed ignorant of her presence, happily munching on a rather messy looking bento. But soon, confusion left as her Uchiha blood boiled with rage and anger not to mention a bit of embarrassment.
"Hey! This is my spot!" Satsuki shouted at the blonde as she stood up to stare down at him, placing her hands on her hips as she glowered at him.
"Hmm?" Naruto sounded as he looked up in surprise, Satsuki's breath hitching when she saw just how beautiful his eyes were.
"Is there something on my face?" He asked in a confused tone, Satsuki immediately breaking out of her stupor to glower once more at him.
"I said this is my spot! Go find your own!" She repeated once more, Naruto simply blinking before looking around the area.
"Is that because you have no friends?" Naruto asked as Satsuki stiffened, for the first time since entering the academy and in life, she felt insulted and hurt at once because of a seemingly idiotic blonde.
"S-So what if I d-don't have any f-friends! W-Who needs them! P-People don't wanna be friends, they're o-only nice when they want something from y-you!" Satsuki stammered as she willed herself not to cry, blinking back tears of both anger and sorrow as she turned away.
About to turn and tell her sensei that someone was being mean to her, she stopped abruptly when she felt something warm brush away a few of the tears falling from her face. Snapping her eyes open, she froze when she saw that it was the same blonde who was mocking her. Concern filled his cerulean orbs as he continued to brush away her tears, Satsuki unable to do anything but look wide eyed and pink faced as he finished dabbing the rest of her tears away with a handkerchief he had packed with his bento.
"I'm sorry, I didn't mean to make you cry. Honest." Naruto said in an apologetic tone, Satsuki furiously shaking her head as she sniffled before turning away from him.
"I-I wasn't crying, dummy." She huffed as she sniffled once more, Naruto blinking before a soft laugh left his mouth causing Satsuki to turn red behind the ears.
"I'm Naruto, Naruto Uzumaki. Who're you Neko-chan?" Naruto asked as he introduced himself, Satsuki flushing a bit at the rather embarrassing nickname.
"I'm n-not Neko-chan! I'm S-Satsuki! Satsuki Uchiha!" Satsuki said in a heated and embarrassed tone, Naruto simply smiling at her as he patted the seat beside him.
"Nice to meet you Satsuki-chan. Come'on, let's eat lunch together. It's a lot nicer to eat with someone else then eating alone." Naruto offered as Satsuki stiffened a bit, but slowly nodding her head as she took a seat beside him.
It was then that Satsuki felt something spark from the confines of her heart, a warm, filling sensation that overshadowed nearly every other feeling that she had experienced before. During those moments together, Satsuki felt her heart quicken when he smiled at her, offered her some of his lunch and when she gave him a piece of her lunch. A feeling that she'd never forget for as long as she's live, a feeling of a different kind of love. This was the moment that Satsuki had met both her first friend and her first love, and that love only grew as time went on.
(Time Skip - A Few Weeks Later)
"Ne, Satsuki-chan? Is something the matter? You kind of look like a peach, should I tell Suzume-sensei?" He asked in a concerned tone, Satsuki simply looking away as a deeper shade of pink invaded her face.
"I-I'm fine, dummy! Here! Y-You can have it! Be thankful, i-it's my favorite!" Satsuki quickly said in an attempt to stave off any other attempts to include their sensei into the mix, offering her prized namagashi to the blonde.
"Ah! Thanks Satsuki-chan!" Naruto chirped in a happy tone as he accepted the beautiful treat, Satsuki flushing a bit deeper when she felt his fingers brush against hers.
Seeing him smiling as he enjoyed her gift, she let a small smile cross her face as well as she became a bit half lidded as she stared at his face. It was a wonder to her, how in such short time someone had entered and secured such a prominent place in her heart. A bit lost in her thoughts, she was broken from them when she felt something touch her lips. Snapping out of it with a start, she saw that it was a small slice of yōkan.
"Say 'Ah' Satsuki-chan." Naruto said in a happy manner, the poor young maiden's face steaming red as she obliged.
Taking the slice of yōkan into her mouth, she felt her heart flutter as the knowledge that it wasn't just a slice of dessert that they shared but also an "indirect kiss". Placing her hands on her cheeks, she turned away as she happily munched on the rather delicious treat she was given. Beside her, Naruto blinked a bit at her radiant and euphoric expression before simply smiling as he was happy that his friend was happy.
"Wow, my last batch of yōkan must've been really good." He thought with a smile on his face, returning to his lunch as Satsuki opted to remain in dreamland.
(Flashback - End)
As for the nature of her stare, why was it that Ino Yamanaka of off people seemed to be the closest to the blonde after herself? Why was it Ino and not herself anymore? The way that Naruto asked her if she was doing or feeling well when she was caught ogling him, it just infuriated her. It used to be her that he was worriedly asking about, though that stopped when Satsuki began to be flooded more and more by admirers when they saw that she wasn't as frigid as they assumed when she interacted with Naruto; though they found it was still far from the truth when they weren't said blonde. While Satsuki didn't like to play the "elite card", she was much more suited for being together with the blonde then Yamanaka was. She could provide her crush with everything that he could ever want, including herself. She was his first and best friend after all, though it was a mostly one sided affair on her part.
"Tsk, dumb blonde..." Satsuki muttered under her breath as she returned to gazing out the window, stealing glances at Naruto when she was sure that no one was looking while contemplating possible ideas for reconnecting with her crush and friend.
As for Hinata Hyuga, the most soft spoken young lady in the entire class, her affection for the blonde stemmed for what had happened years ago. On a snowy day while preparing to enroll at the Academy, Hinata was degraded by a group of three bullies for her Byakugan. Naruto, who had witnessed the event, refused to let them insult her and came to her defense. Even when they outnumbered him, he refused to back down and managed to effectively defeat them when he took their beating and still stood to oppose them.
It was after that, that they ran from the scene when Hinata's escort arrived at the scene. A bit stunned when Hinata explained what had happened, they were about to thank Naruto but found that he was vanished before he was given proper thanks. A day later, Hinata returned to the spot and found Naruto once more as he recovered the remains of his scarf, a keepsake from the orphanage's caretaker who had knitted it for him. It was then that Hinata gathered her courage before thanking him, Naruto a bit surprised but allowing her to keep the scarf since it was ruined. That incident sparked a love and admiration for the blonde that only grew as she did, though it did come with the emotion that is the darker aspect of love, envy.
Hinata was deeply envious of the relationship that Ino and Naruto had, as light as it was. To Hinata, Naruto was someone who she held on a pedestal that she hoped to one day stand upon beside him. For someone like Ino, who's only claim to the blonde was his appearance, which she couldn't fault the platinum blonde for as Naruto was very attractive, Hinata simply felt that she didn't deserve him. Unlike Ino, Hinata wasn't very high up on the social totem pole, being seen as too quiet, too weak or too creepy unlike Ino who was a social butterfly who got along with the others on top. Ino could've picked any other person to fall in love with but as fate would have it, she just had to fall in love with the one person she was interested in. Though, what truly caused Hinata to envy Ino and ultimately dislike her was the way that Naruto cared for her. He would ask if she was alright when he caught her stealing glances at her, or would offer her something to eat when she was on her diet. Why was it Ino and not herself?
"Naruto-kun..." Hinata whispered under her breath in a longing tone, her eyes shining with a bit of hope while a deep blush marred her face as he saw her and offered a small smile in return.
Soon enough, the sounds of Iruka and Mizuki re-entering the room garnered the attention of the students present. Quickly sitting up, they all shook with undeniable amounts of excitement as they readied themselves for the test at hand. Seeing them all so ready, the two smiled at them as they began calling them down for their exams.
(Scene Change - Konoha: T&I Division)
"Ahahaha! Wow, I'm truly sorry Naruto-kun, but this is just too funny!" Ibiki howled as he saw the current state of his young friend, a Naruto controlled Misami shaking her head in irritation.
'Ha, Ha. Very funny. Could I just get my room and sleep this off?" He asked as Ibiki simply nodded with a gin, handing him a key for a room designed for the blonde and his host.
Gratefully taking the key, he headed towards the room before plopping down on the cushiony bed. A sigh of content leaving him, Naruto turned over and let his eyes close; quickly falling to a deep sleep as he awaited the next day and the return to his body.
(Scene Change - Konoha: Konoha Ninja Academy)
"Alright then! Naruto Uzumaki, it's your turn!" Iruka called out, a smile on his face as he watched his most soft spoken student make his way down to the floor.
"Are you ready, Naruto?" He asked as Naruto let a small smile cross his face, Iruka returning it ten-fold as he administered the test.
Passing wasn't difficult for the blonde, Naruto having had practiced those jutsu countless times in the past to prepare for the very test he had taken. Once he was handed his Hitai-ate, the blonde secured it around his forehead as he turned and stared at the Hokage's monument. Heading out of the academy and onto the rooftop of his apartment building, Naruto continued to stare at them before holding his fist out towards the stone faces of Konoha's previous leaders.
"I swear on my life that I'll protect Konoha. Many may be the leaves growing in the sun, but I will be part of the roots that thrive in the shadows." He declared as a smile crossed his face, bringing his fist down as he turned and headed inside.
And that's a wrap. Hope you all liked it, it was really different from what I'm used to doing so hope it ain't too bad. Lemme know what you think of this little collection idea thing alright? And like I said before, send me something if you think it'll help me out. And like I've always said, til next time, you all stay awesome.
Henge no Jutsu - Transformation Technique: E-Rank, Supplementary, Given all the missions ninja are assigned to - battle, intelligence gathering, diversions - this is a priceless ninjutsu. It is typically used to change into people other than oneself, but one also has the ability to change into animals, plants, and even inanimate objects like weapons. This gives this technique an abundance of uses. The transformation of a skilled shinobi will be exactly like the genuine article, so it will be impossible to tell the two apart. On the other hand, a transformation performed by an inexperienced person will have obvious discrepancies. It will be impossible to deceive anyone with it. This is one of the most basic ninjutsu, as such most shinobi know how to perform it. The transformation technique is considered to be among the more difficult E-ranked techniques, since it requires constant emission of chakra while mentally maintaining the form. On top of that, the user would be, most likely, interacting with the environment. This puts mental strain on an inexperienced ninja. Thus the best way to determine if it is indeed a transformation is to cause this strain upon the user; though this is of course not always successful.
Bunshin no Jutsu - Clone Technique: E-Rank,; Supplementary, A ninjutsu that creates an intangible copy of one's own body, without any substance. Since the clone itself doesn't have the ability to attack, and thus can only be used to confuse the enemy, it is mainly used in combination with other ninjutsu. It's a basic technique, but depending on one's ingenuity, it can be used effectively. The clones may not dissipate when they come into contact with something. These clones can be easily distinguished by persons with dōjutsu. A person with normal eyes can also distinguish the clones from the original, since the clones do not have shadows and will not disrupt the area around themselves with their movement (i.e. won't kick up dust, crush grass, etc.).
