Chapter 1

AN: Hello everyone I am proud to present to all of you my newest story "A Peek into the Naruto-verse". Now before all of form a mob and decide to lynch me for starting another new story please let me explain myself. I spent some time catching up on the various stories I read on this wonderful site and came across a new one by a very talented Author.

The author is Juubi no Shinju and the story I am talking about is his "Into the edge of the Naruto-verse" story. If you haven't already checked it out I highly recommend you do as it is really good. The basis for his story is some of the characters from the Naruto series being transported to a room. In the room they meet a "GOD" who gives them a peek into some of the various "Worlds" that inhabit the "Naruto-verse".

I won't spoil anything but the story is really funny at points and really touching at other points given how the characters react to what they are seeing.

Anyway long sotry short it inspired to make my own version of the story and after getting the "Go Ahead" from Juubi no Shinju here we are.

This story will be slightly different from his/hers as it will revolve around roughly the same group of characters watching MY "Worlds". In other words they will be watching the events of the other stories I have published so far…and possibly the near future *Hint Hint*. In addition they will be jumping from "World" to "World". AN example of this might be that they are watching "Naruto Dino Sage" in one chapter and in the next I have them switch to watching another world like say "Maelstrom in DC" for a bit before coming back to "Dino Sage".

If you are confused by this I suggest you check out Juubi no Shinju's story and you will get a better picture of what I mean. Oh and before I forget this story starts AFTER Sasuke's defection from the Leaf Village, and the Mission that Naruto, Hinata, Kiba, and Shino went on to find that beetle, BUT BEFORE Naruto leaves with Jiraiya on his training trip.

Everything in BOLD will be the dialogue, thoughts, and events that take place in the various worlds that the group will be watching.

Now without further ado I bring you the first chapter of "A Peek into the Naruto-verse".

Sitting at his desk in front of his laptop in a white room with various posters on the walls was a black haired man with brown eyes. He is wearing a black T-shirt with a red and purple hearth with stitches going through it *Kingdom Hearts Heartless Symbol* a pair of red shorts, and hanging from the corner of his mouth was toothpick.

The man's hand were currently behind his head as he leaned back in his chair and stared at the ceiling with a look of boredom on his face. This was none other than KuronoDono12 or simply "Kuro" or even "K.D." and he was one of the more recent lesser gods tasked with keeping record of some of the various "Worlds" that reside in the Multi-Verse.

Kuro sighs in a bored tone as he continues to stare at the ceiling "I know I should be hard at work recording the events of my "Worlds" but I just am so BORED! It's not like I don't enjoy my job and I really hate to disappoint all of my followers but I just get so tired working on the same things all the time. Plus I haven't been able to even start on the multitude of new video games I recently bought during my most recent trip down to the mortal world" he says sounding depressed.

Kuro lets out another sigh as he stares at his laptop for a moment "You know what screw it! I need a break and by burritos I am going to take one!" he says and begins to get up only to be blasted onto his ass by a shockwave and bright light.

Kuro climbs over his chair and looks to see the smiling face of a white haired woman with golden eyes wearing a white kimono and gulps "Um how can be of service today Hikari-sama?" he asks timidly as the woman standing before he was the "Almighty" herself Kami otherwise known as GOD and one of the three Goddesses that rule over the Multi-verse…and his boss.

Hikarilooks down at Kuro and smiles "Kuro-san I need you to look over a new world that recently popped up in the "Naruto-verse"" she says in a gentle voice.

Kuro isn't that surprised that another world popped up in THAT universe as it seemed like there were at least 10 new ones a day for that specific part of the Multi-verse…not that he minded of course since it was one of his favorites.

Kuro stand up and smiles "Is there anything I should know in particular about this new world Hikari-sama?" he asks appearing eager to get to work while inwardly crying at his workload increasing yet again.

Hikari nods "Yes this is a special variation of those "Reading of…" worlds that pop up from time to time. You will appear before a group of the world's residents and then proceed to show them the events that happen in some of the other worlds in the Naruto-verse. However you will only show them the world's that are in your sector of the Naruto-verse unless I say otherwise" she says listing off the details of his newest assignment.

Kuro's eyes widen hearing this as he had only heard of one other world of this specific type in all the Multi-verse and that one resided in his fellow record keeper Juubi no Shinju's sector. Kuro snaps out of his stupor and nods in understanding "Very well Hikari-sama I shall begin immediately but what of the other worlds that I am suppose to begin recording when they appear?" he asks.

Hikari giggles hearing the question "Those specific worlds still need some final tweaks made to them before they can come into existence so don't worry about them for a while. Now I must be off however I look forward to your continued hard work" she says before vanishing in a bright flash of light.

After she disappears Kuro just slumps down into his chair and sighs "So much for getting that break I needed…Oh well I might as well get started" he says before standing up and snapping his fingers as the room becomes a white void with a pedestal in the center of it. Kuro gives the surroundings a once over before nodding satisfied with the layout before pulling out a notepad and looking at the list of names of the people he needs to bring here "Okay so from the looks of it I need to bring in the standard group of people however it looks like I can bring in a few others at a later date" he says.

Kuro then walks over and stand by the pedestal "Well here goes nothing" he says before snapping his fingers again this time causing a group of people to appear before him.

Kuro then looks at the group as they begin standing up and mentally checks off who has appeared "Okay so from the looks of it I got everyone who can appear at this time but I better double check just to be sure. There is the Toad Sannin Jiraiya, Godaime Hokage Tsunade Senju, Kakashi Hatake, Asuma Sarutobi, Shizune Kato and TonTon of course, Kurenai Yuhi…damn she is as hot as ever…Crap got to focus. Now where was I? Oh yeah Might Gai *Shudder*, Anko Mitarashi…also looking hot as ever. Ino Yamanaka, Choji Akimichi, Shikamaru Nara, Kiba Inuzuka, Shino Aburame, Hinata Hyuuga…still looking as cute as ever…Rock Lee, Neji Hyuuga, TenTen, Sakura Haruno, Konohamaru, Udon, and Moegi…and last but not least that worlds Naruto Uzumaki. Okay looks like they are all here" he finishes mentally listing off the people before standing before him and nods his head.

Meanwhile said group of people are beginning to take in their surroundings and notice they are no longer in Konoha. Naruto scratches the back of his head confused as to what is going on since he was just training in one of Konoha's training grounds with Jiraiya aka Pervy Sage "Where the heck are we?" he says voicing the question on everyone's mind before gulping as he feels someone glaring at him.

He turns his head to see Sakura cracking her knuckles dangerously "Naruto-baka I swear if this is one of you pranks…" she begins before the group hears someone clear their throat and turn to see a man standing next to a pedestal.

Kuro after getting the groups attention smiles at the group "Hello allow me to introduce myself I am KuronoDono12 but you can call me Kuro or K.D. I am a Mid-Level god tasked with keeping records of the various worlds that pop up in my sector of the Multi-verse. Now the reason all of you are here is that your world is one of the very special ones that allows you to view events that have either not happened yet or those that take place in a world in the "Naruto-verse"" he says introducing himself.

The group is shocked by all of this when Tsunade asks "What do you mean by the "Naruto-verse"" she asks getting nods from the rest of the group.

Kuro smiles "Well simply put it is a portion of the Multi-verse solely designated to the various worlds that revolve around the life of Naruto Uzumaki and his various incarnations" he says casually shocking the group.

Everyone in the group looks at Naruto who simply stands there with his mouth hanging open in shock. Jiraiya rubs his chin in thought hearing this "What do you mean by Naruto's various incarnation's?" he asks curious about what that could mean.

Kuro chuckles hearing the question as he expected someone would ask about that "Well in each world there is a version of Naruto that resides. However all of these worlds are essentially branches of a giant tree and at the base of the tree is the Prime Naruto World or Canon World as you could call it. You know if you want I could give you a small peek into that world if you would like?" he asks getting nods from the group.

Kuro claps hearing this "Very well now pay close attention as I can only show you a VERY brief glimpse of it" he says before pushing a button on the pedestal next to him causing the room to change into the Hokage's Office.

Sitting behind the desk is an older version of Naruto who appears to be in his late 20's wearing the Hokage Robes working on paperwork.

The group is shocked to see this before Naruto lets out a yell "YEAH I AM THE HOKAE!" he yells happy that in this world he achieved his dream. The adults of the group are happy for the Naruto of that world achieving his dream. The kids of the group are stunned by what they are seeing but each is happy that their friend achieved his dream.

Kuro looks at the group "What you are seeing are the current events of the Canon Naruto world taking place in real time. We are simply watching the events as a Hologram or Genjutsu if you will however I assure you that everything you are seeing is in fact real in that world. Now judging by what time that clock reads you are in for a big treat" he says mysteriously as the group watches.

Naruto Uzumaki the Nanadaime Hokage of The Hidden Leaf Village, and Hero of the Fourth Shinobi War…

"WHAT!" The group yells as they continue to watch shocked by what they just heard.

Kuro chuckles "Yeah in the Canon Naruto World there was a Fourth Shinobi War in which ALL of the Shinobi villages united and formed the first ever "Shinobi Alliance" to fight an enemy that threatened the ENTIRE Elemental Nations. In the War the Canon Naruto played one of the biggest roles and in the end was the Savoir and Hero of the Elemental Nations" he says casually explain the situation.

The group stares at Canon Naruto in shock before looking to their Naruto trying to figure out how that could have happened.

Hinata however had a small smile on her face as she thought "I knew you were amazing Naruto-kun and now everyone else can see it too" as a small blush comes to her cheeks happy for her crush.

Kuro clears his throat "I would pay attention if I was all of you or you would miss something really important" he says causing them to look back at the Canon Naruto behind the desk.

Was sitting behind his desk doing paperwork like all the previous Hokages had before him. However unlike the previous Hokage's he had found the secret to beating the dreaded foe. In fact he was shocked that none of the other Kages had thought of it as it was so obvious…

"PLEASE TELL ME THE SECRET!" Tsunade yells desperately as she HATED doing all the paperwork that came with being Hokage. The group sweat drops seeing this as they continue to watch what was happening.

As Naruto signs another paper he hears a knock at the door "Come in" he says before the doors fly open and two blur rush at him before jumping over the desk and colliding with him knocking him out of his chair and the three tumbles to floor.

"DADDY!" both blurs yell revealing two young children. The first is a boy of around 6 years old with spiky blonde hair, blue eyes and two whisker like birth marks on his cheeks. The other is a girl of around 4 years old with navy blue hair cut in a Hime-style with blue eyes and two whisker like birth marks on her cheeks.

The group smiles seeing this as the females of the group coo at how cute the kids are. Kakashi then smiles behind his mask and puts a hand on Naruto's shoulder "Congrats Naruto your children are very cute" he says.

Naruto looks up at Kakashi and smiles "Thanks Kakashi-sensei! I wonder who their mother is though?" he says as the group takes a closer look at the kids. The majority of the groups eyes widen when the features of both children match only one person they know and said person starts to blush heavily.

Naruto laughs as he hugs the two kids "Boruto Himawari what a surprise did you come to visit me at work?"

The two kids nod as Boruto says "Yeah mom decided to make something special for lunch and we wanted to bring you some" he says with a grin.

Naruto raises an eyebrow hearing this "Oh is that so and where is your mother?" he asks teasingly before a woman walks into the office.

The woman has shoulder length navy blue hair with two bangs framing her face, white pupiless eyes with a hint of lavender in them. She is wearing a lavender sweater that hugs her curvy frame and a pair of purple pants. In her hand she has a bowl of ramen with plastic wrap over it to keep it warm "Right here Naruto-kun" she says.

Naruto smiles and gets up from the floor before walking over to the woman and giving her a kiss on the lips "Hey there Hianta-chan" he says after they break the kiss.

The group is stunned and happy that Canon Naruto is married to Canon Hinata. Naruto looks over to Hinata who is blushing so hard her face is redder than a tomato and grins "Looks like we are married Hinata-chan" he says right as everything becomes too much for her and she feints.

Naruto catches her as he begins to fall "HINATA! Hey you okay? What's Wrong?" he asks trying to wake the girl up and causing the group to sweat drop.

Kurenai smiles slightly seeing this "She will be okay Naruto just give her a minute" she says causing Naruto to look at her and nod as he continues to hold Hinata.

Kuro clears his throat "Unfortunately that is all I can show you for the Canon Naruto world" he says as the image of and Adult Naruto and Hinata along with their children vanishes and the area returns to the white void.

Sakura then thinks of something "Wait is there anything else you can tell us about that World? She asks wanting to know what happened to that world's version of her.

Kuro thinks for a minute then nods "I have an idea of what you mean by that…Yes you are married to Sasuke Uchiha" he says saying Sasukes name with venom. He was never a really big fan of Sasuke's in the Canon world and that has carried over to the majority of the worlds in the Naruto-verse. However there are some worlds that he can stand the version of Sasuke residing within them.

Sakura squeals hearing this and turns to Ino with a superior smirk on her face "HA! TAKE THAT INO-PIG I AM MARRIED TO SASUKE-KUN!" she yells.

Kuro clears his throat again "I wouldn't be so happy if I were you Saukra. Yes you are married to him be he is hardly ever at home choosing to spend his time wander around the Elemental Nations instead of being with his wife and daughter" he says snapping her out of her joy.

By this time Hinata is waking up from her feinting spell and thinks "I am married to Naruto-kun in that world!" before she lets out a mental cheer at that worlds version of herself.

Kuro sees Hinata waking up and decides to get things started "Now before we get started I need to say a few things. First the some of the events you see could potentially be spoilers for your world, HOWEVER this is not a guarantee so don't try and go and change things in your world using this information. Second there may be times that you see something that shocks like for instance maybe Naruto destroys Konoha or everyone betrays him. Remember that these are ALTERNATE Worlds and therefore have NOTHING to do with yours. I don't want any of you to start viewing another in a negative way based on something that you see. Finally there may be times when an "Intimate" moment begins to happen between two...or more…people. During this time those who are not involved will be temporarily frozen unable to see or hear anything that is happening. However at the same time some of the group that aren't involved will not be frozen as you will see. Finally enjoy yourselves this is an incredible opportunity that you are getting and one that has only happened once before in the entire Multi-verse" he says explain the guidelines.

Kuro then snaps his fingers causing a series of windows to appear and in each window is a different version of Naruto. The group looks at the windows and the pictures they contain and can't believe their eyes. They see all sorts of versions of Naruto from one that appears to be piloting a giant metal man and destroy other giant metal men using an assortment of weapons.

Tenten drools seeing this and mutters "I want one!" causing both Neji and Lee to pale and mentally pray "Please Kami-sama don't give her one of those!".

There is a window that shows a version of Naruto piloting what appears to be a large paper airplane made of metal and fighting what appears to be giant insects.

Another window shows Naruto transforming into a series of large reptiles and wielding two different swords when he transforms back. Next to that window is one where a version of Naruto wields two swords that resemble keys and summoning the same types of reptiles.

Several windows show versions of Naruto wielding some kind of silver cylinder that emits a beam of light and leading troops in matching white armor into battle against what appear to be some kind of metal figures that resemble the puppets used by Suna. A similar window shows him leading a massive fleet what appear to be ships into battle against ships that look like they are made of some kind of rock.

One window shows him fighting alongside people wearing strange costumes that remind the group of the superhero cartoons that they used to watch in the early mornings when they were younger.

One window showed him on an island with a bunch of other teenagers they had never seen before doing what appears to be challenges.

Off to the side they saw a window that appeared to be of Naruto INSIDE of a Dragon of all things and working with the dragon to fight other dragons.

They see a window that appears to show Naruto along with a group of Humans and what appear to be aliens fighting what looks like giant mechanical squids?

Finally they notice several windows that don't have a clear picture of what is going on as they are filled with static.

Kiba raises an eyebrow seeing this "What is wrong with these windows?" he asks referencing the windows that are full of static.

Kuro looks at the windows for a moment before rubbing the back of his neck "Well those are worlds that haven't appeared yet but might while all of you are here so for now they are filled with static. Now how about I choose the first world to show all of you" he says before rubbing his chin in thought. After a moment he grins having made up his mind "Well to start things off I will show you a world that has recently popped up that I have named "Return of the Maelstrom"" he says as all but one of the windows disappear. Kuro then presses a button on the pedestal and the room changes once again as the group begins to watch.

Sitting around a fire holding a stick and cooking a small lizard was an 18 year old spiky blonde haired young man with sky blue eyes, a rather handsome face that many women would find attractive and 6 whisker like birth marks with 3 on each cheek. He was wearing a set of brown robes and pants with a set of white armor that covers his chest and the tops of his arms, with orange and blue stripes down it. On the shoulder guards of the armor there were two symbols one on each side. On the left shoulder guard there was a circle with a pair of white wings in it with what appears to be a beam of light rising up between them with a star near the bottom *The symbol for the Jedi Order*. On his right shoulder there was what appeared to be a red swirl that resembled a whirlpool *Uzumaki Clan symbol*.

The group stares at the young man clearly able to tell it is that world's version of Naruto. a few of the girls of the group blush at how handsome he is while Anko wolf whistles "Damn Gaki you are good looking " she says licking her lips.

Naruto shivers seeing this remembering his first encounter with Anko. Kurenai lightly slaps the back of her friends head "Behave Anko" she says sternly but a very small dusting of pink can be seen on her own cheeks.

Anko pouts at having been reprimanded "Ah come on Nai-chan you have to admit that version of the Gaki is HOT!" she whines before pouting as she receives a glare from Kurenai before the group turns back to watch what is happening.

The young man rotates the stick holding the lizard allowing it to cook on the other side when he hears footsteps approaching. He looks up to see a man wearing white armor and a white helmet. The armor covered the man's entire body and had two set of blue and orange lines on it running down the chest and on his arms. His helmet had a black visor that resembled a "T", a crest painted orange and blue, and an antenna on the right side of his helmet *Phase 3 Arc Trooper Armor*.

Asuma rubs his chin seeing this "Must be some kind of soldier judging by the outfit he is wearing" he says getting nods from the other as they continue to watch.

The armored man snaps off a quick salute as he stands at attention "General our scanners indicate that a large force has dropped out of hyperspace above the planet. They have also begun sending down troop transports…all of them are Imperial" he says gravely at the end.

Kiba scratches his head in confusion "What does he mean by hyperspace?" he asks confused by what he is seeing.

Kuro chuckles hearing this "In this specific universe technology has advanced to the point that travel between planets is possible. Furthermore there are countless planets and species of life that inhabit the planets" he says explaining the basic mechanics of the world they are watching.

The blonde haired man lets a small smile come across his face as he removes the lizard from the fire "Striker how many times have I told you I am no longer a General? Furthermore you know I am not one to show respect just cause of someone's rank" he says chuckling at the end of his statement.

The now named striker begins to chuckle along with him "Sorry Naruto force of habit, besides you will always be a General to not only myself but also the rest of the 909th" he says with a smile on his face as he removes his helmet revealing his dark tanned skin, golden brown eyes and close shaved head.

The group is speechless on hearing that the Naruto of that world is a GENERAL. Shikamaru rubs his temples "Naruto as a General…Troublesome" he says causing the group to sweat drop.

Naruto looks over to Shikamaru with his eye twitching "What the hell does that mean Shikamaru!" he yells.

Shikamaru just sighs "It's too troublesome to explain" he says lazily causing the group to sweat drop at his lay attitude as they go back to watching.

The now named Naruto rips off one of the cooked Lizard's legs and hands it to Striker who takes it and bites off a chunk of the meat "How big is the enemy force?" Naruto questions before taking a bite of another of the lizards legs.

Striker swallows before sighing "We estimate that it is likely an ENTRIE Legion along with the majority of another one. Considering that our forces only number around 2,500 it's a safe bet that we aren't going to make it out of this one alive" he finishes somberly.

The group gasps hearing this "My god" Shizune says as she covers her mouth her hand.

Naruto stands up and dusts off his robes "You know Striker you and the rest of the 909th don't have to go down with me" he says offering his friend a way out.

Striker just chuckles before shaking his head "Naruto I stood by you during the first battle of Geonosis when the war began, the rest of the 909th joined shortly after and you lead us through countless battles. In all of the battles your tactics saved us countless times to the point that we rarely suffered more than 25 casualties a mission. Those who did die were not forgotten as just another soldier and were given full funerals and their names inscribed on a memorial wall that you handmade I may add. You treated us as individuals instead of clones and instilled in us that "Those who abandon a mission are scum, but those who abandon or betray their comrades are lower than Hutt shit". It was this teaching that helped us all disobey Order 66 when it was issued and stand by you now. We are not going to just abandon you now, each and every one of us is willing to fight to the death right alongside you" he says with determination.

Kiba's mouth hangs open hearing this "Holy crap the Naruto of that world is some kind of Genius!" he yells.

Shikamaru nods "I have to say that it is likely that his IQ is even higher than my father's judging from what we just heard" he says shocking the adults who knew how smart Shikamaru's father is.

Sakura raises an eyebrow "What is a Hutt though?" she asks.

Kuro clears his throat "A Hutt is one of the species that inhabit that universe. As to what they look like it is easier to just show you" he says before a window appears showing what a Hutt looks like.

The majority of the group vomits into trash cans that seem to have magically appeared upon seeing what a Hutt looks like. Ino pulls her head out of her trash can and yells "Oh god that thing is hideous! It is like some kind of disgusting space slug!" she yells.

Tsunade's eyebrow begins twitching hearing this "There is no way that things is remotely related to a SLUG!" she yells a little offended since she has a summoning contract with the Slug Clan.

Kuro gulps hearing this "Actually Tsunade-san the Hutt's are in fact a type of Slug" he says causing her face to pale. After recovering from their various states of sickness the group continues to watch.

Naruto stand there listening to everything Striker is saying and can't help but smile, his friend-no his brother in all but blood-was right, he then thinks on Order 66 and what happened.

*Flashback 1 month ago*

Naruto and the 909th were walking back to their campsites cheerfully after a successful mission to wipe out the Separatists droid forces attacking Ryloth. As they were walking Striker's long distance communicator beeps indicating someone was trying to contact him. Naruto notices this and raises an eyebrow as a 6-inch tall blue holographic robed figure appears.

The holographic figure looks at Striker "Captain Striker the time has come Execute Order 66" he says in a raspy voice.

Choji raises an eyebrow in confusion "What is a Droid?" he asks.

Kuro sighs hearing this he really should have known he would have to explain a lot of what they would see "A droid could be compared to the puppets that are used in Sunagakure. However there are countless variations of droids with different jobs ranging from those that help around the house to those that are used in Battle" he says explaining what droids are.

Jiraiya rubs his chin "I have a bad feeling about what might happen next" he says confusing the others.

Kakashi raises an eyebrow "What do you mean Jiraiya-sama?" he asks.

Jiraiya just shakes his head "That robed figure that appeared and gave that Order to Striker gives me a very bad vibe" he says causing the others eyes to widen as they continue to watch.

Striker and the rest of the clone's eyes gloss over for a moment as the orders register before they remember all of their time spent with Naruto and what he taught them. Their eyes regain focus and Striker glares at the holographic robed figure "With all due respect sir…Go suck a Hutt's Nuts!" he yells shocking the figure before smashing the communicator.

Naruto raises an eyebrow in confusion "Wait de he mean Shadow Clones?" he asks.

Kuro shakes his head "No he meant actual Clones as in they all have the same DNA" he says shocking Tsunade and Shizune.

Tsunade looks at Kuro "You mean that their medical technology is so advanced that can actually CLONE people!" she nearly yells in shock.

Kuro nods "Yes and that is just the tip of the iceberg so to speak. They have actual working and fully functional prosthetic limbs and organs for those who need them, and can even save someone who has been severed in half at the waist…as long as they receive medical attention soon enough" he explains shocking them before they go back to watching the events before them.

Naruto watches this happen in confusion before he is suddenly hit by a massive tremor in the force. He begins feeling the lives of hundreds…no thousands of Jedi across the galaxy being snuffed out one by one. The feeling knocks the breath out of him and he clutches his chest trying to breathe before falling to the ground unconscious as Striker and the rest of the clones rush to his side.

Neji raises an eyebrow "What is the Force?" he asks.

Kuro sighs "That will likely be explained later so for now just keep watching" he says answering Neji's question.

Naruto wakes up to see Striker sitting not far from him tending a fire. Naruto rubs his head and groans catching Strikers attention. Striker walks over and hands Naruto a cup of water "You feeling better General? You gave all of us a pretty good scare when you collapsed like that" he asks.

Naruto finishes off the water and takes a deep breath "Yeah I am better now Striker I was just hit by a massive tremor through the force. What was that message you received right before I passed out?" he asks narrowing his eyes.

Striker's eyes widen hearing this "General I can't say much since I don't even understand it myself but when that figure said "Execute Order 66" it felt as though my brain shut off for a moment like the engine was on but no one was at the wheel. It was then that a single thought ran through my head which was to kill you but then all of time we spent fighting alongside each other and what you taught me ran through my head and I returned to normal. Apparently the same thing happened with the rest of the men since they said they experienced the same thing" he says explaining what happened to the best of his ability.

Kurenai rubs her chin hearing this "It sounds similar to a Genjutsu that forces the person to do something after a certain phrase is spoken" she muses as the group continues watching.

Naruto curses hearing this as it proves his hunch "That is what I was afraid of my friend" he says somberly confusing the clone.

Striker scratches his head hearing this "What do you mean General?" he asks not following Naruto's train of thought.

Asuma grinds his teeth hearing this "I am not liking where this going" he says.

Ino looks to her Jonin sensei in confusion "What do you mean Asuma-sensei?" she asks.

Asuma just shakes his head "Just continue watching" he says as they do just that.

Naruto interlaces his fingers as he brings his hands close to his face "What I mean is that I don't think this was an isolated incident. That massive tremor I felt through the force was the deaths of thousands of Jedi all across the galaxy" he says in a monotone voice as if all emotion was stripped from him.

Striker's eyes widen hearing this "You don't mean what I think you mean right?" he asks hoping he was wrong.

Naruto sighs "Yes I think that the same individual that gave you that order also gave it to every single other clone commander stationed under a Jedi General across the galaxy…except they weren't able to fight off whatever happened to them and carried out their orders" he says sadly.

The group gasps hearing this "My god then that means that…"Ino begins only for Asuma to finish her sentence "…That every death that Naruto FELT was of a Jedi being killed by their own men" he says.

Naruto clenches his fists hearing this enraged by what a version of him just experienced. Unknown to him his eyes briefly turn red with black slits. Jiraiya notices this and puts his hand on Naruto's shoulder to calm him down which does.

However unknown to the others Naruto's eyes also briefly flashed a sulphuric yellow which only Kuro saw causing him to raise his eyebrow in thought. The group then continues to watch still in shock by what they just heard.

Strikers legs nearly give out hearing this as many of those clones were not only his brother by blood but also friends, and some of the Jedi were also his friends. As he tries to grasp the severity of the situation one Jedi in particular pops into his mind someone who is very precious to Naruto "Naruto please tell me that SHE wasn't one of the Jedi whose death you felt" he asks praying to al the higher powers that she wasn't for his friends sake.

The group raises an eyebrow hearing this wondering who it could be that Striker is referring to and what her relationship with that version of Naruto could be.

Naruto just lowers his head "Striker HERS was the most powerful of all of the deaths I felt and the one that knocked me unconscious" he says in a dead voice as tears come to his eyes upon remembering the death of the one person in the entire galaxy he cherished above all others…Aayla Secura.

Once again the group raises an eyebrow wondering who this "Aayla Secura" is but they also gasp upon finding out that she apparently is among those that died.

Aayla Secura was a cerulean blue skinned female Twi'Lek and fellow Jedi Knight. The two of them had grown up together in the Jedi Temple after one of Aayla's masters Quinlan Vos saved her from being sold into slavery and found her to be force sensitive. During their time as younglings learning the ways of the Jedi the two became fast friends to the point they nearly inseparable.

As the two of them grew older their feelings for one another began to deepen from just friendship into something that the Jedi were forbidden from …love. Unknown to the other at the time they buried their feelings for each other and went on with their lives as Padawans under their respective masters. Aayla had become the Padawan learner of Master Quinlan Vos.

Naruto had become the Padawan learner of Master Shaak Ti one of the masters who had taken a particular interest in his learning the others being Qunlan Vos and Master Yoda himself. For the next few years Naruto and Aayla would see little of each other outside of occasional times they ran into each other at the Jedi Temple. However both of them would soon become Jedi Knights at the age of 15 after undertaking the trials.

Tenten raises an eyebrow hearing this "Um Kuro-san what does it mean by Padawan, Jedi Knight, and Jedi Master?" she asks.

Kuro smiles hearing this "In the Jedi Order those are the various ranks that the members hold. A Padawan is the equivalent to a Genin in rank, a Jedi Knight is the equivalent to a Chunin or Jonin, and a Jedi Master is the equivalent to a Elite Jonin or even Kage. There are also two other ranks which consist of Youngling and Grand Master. A Youngling could be compared to an Academy student while a Grand Master is compared to the Hokage or any of the other Kages. There can only be one Grand Master at a time and it is that individual's duty to not only instruct the younglings from time to time but also provide guidance to the Order as a whole" he explains listing of the ranks in the Jedi Order.

Kuro then continues his explanation "When a youngling reaches a certain skill level they are given the rank of Padawan and then continue their learning under a Jedi Knight or Jedi Master. Once the Padawan's teacher feels they are ready they allow them to undertake the trials which could be compared to the Chunin Exams except it is more spiritual in a sense. If the Padawan completes the trials they are given the rank of Jedi Knight. As for how a Jedi Knight achieves the rank of Jedi Master it is a combination of another set of trials and the Jedi High Council determining if the Knight is ready or qualified to be a Jedi Master" he says finishing his explanation and getting nods from the group as they continue to watch what is happening.

However only 6 months after the two became Jedi Knights the Clone Wars broke out after they along with 200 other Jedi were sent to the planet Geonosis to rescue recently promoted Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, his young Padawan Anakin Skywalker, and Senator Padme Amedala from a Geonosian Battle Arena. Of the 200 Jedi that went only around 20 made it out of the arena alive and that was only thanks to Master Yoda arriving with the Clone Army.

The group gasps hearing this due to the signicant loss of life. The older shinobi who fought in the Third Shinobi War have minor flashbacks to when they fought in the Third Shinobi War or even the Second Shinobi war in the case of Tsunade and Jiraiya.

However even then the battle wasn't over as the first battle of the Clone Wars had officially begun with the remaining Jedi on Geonosis leading clone troopers against the battle droids of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. It was during that battle that Naruto and Striker as he would later be known met for the first time.

In the 3 years that followed Naruto lead Striker and the rest of the 909th Maelstrom Corps on countless missions and soon became on the most decorated groups in the Republic Army. It was also during this time that Naruto and Aayla's mutual feelings for each other finally grew to be too much for them to bury. The two confessed their feelings for each other and became a couple but were forced to keep it a secret due to the Jedi Code forbidding attachments. However they decided that after the war ended they would retire from the Jedi Order and therefore not have to hide their relationship.

The group was happy for Naruto and Aayla but confused by the Jedi forbidding attachments "Kuro-san why do the Jedi forbid attachments like love?" Sakura asks.

Kuro sighs "It is because while there are two sides to the Force a Light side which the Jedi use and the Dark Side which the Sith use. The Jedi stand for peace, order, and harmony while the Sith stand for destruction, chaos and hate. The Jedi believe that if a Jedi has attachments they will begin to fear losing them. This fear will turn to hate if they do in fact lose them which then leads to anger. Anger leads to suffering which in turns lead to death. Fear, Hate, Anger, Suffering, and Death are all aspects of the Darks Side of the force which the Sith use" he says answering her question.

Striker walks over and places his hand on Naruto's shoulder snapping him out of his thoughts "I am sorry to hear that Naruto I know how much she meant to you" he says surprising Naruto. Striker laughs seeing this "Oh come on don't look so surprised that I knew about the relationship between you and General Secura. Hell the entire 909th knew something was going o between the two of you but kept it secret out of respect for the both of you" he says with a smile.

The group chuckles hearing that Naruto and Aayla's relationship wasn't as secret as the two thought.

Naruto sits there for a moment still shocked that not only Striker but also the ENTIRE 909th knew about his relationship with Aayla. Naruto finally recovers from his shock by coughing into his hand "Well that aside for now we need to get back to the "Red Fox" and begin searching for any surviving Jedi and then go from there" he says trying to change the subject.

A frown comes across Striker's face hearing this "I'm sorry Naruto but the Red Fox was destroyed" he says shocking Naruto. Stirker sees this and decides to explain "We aren't 100% sure but from what we can tell there was a secret self destruct code hidden in the ships mainframe that was triggered from long distance, most likely by the same person that issued Order 66" he says sternly.

Naruto curses hearing this, the Red Fox was their home base so to speak one of the earliest Venator-Class ships to come out of the Republic shipyards at the start of the Clone Wars. It had seen Naruto and the 909th through every battle they were ever in and had been just as much a part of their forces as anyone. Not only that it housed over 90% of their supplies ranging from weapons, rations, and ammo to transports, tanks, speeders, fighters, and bombers. It also was where half of the 909th was currently on standby since the Separatist forces that had been attacking Ryloth weren't that large. This meant that of the roughly 5,000 soldiers that made up the 909th they were down to 2,500 which was something unheard of for the group.

Kuro snaps his fingers and a picture of the Red Fox appears causing the groups jaws to hang open as "Ship" was HUGE!

Naruto looks at the Red Fox with stars in his eyes "THAT IS SO COOL!" he yells getting nods from the rest of the Genin as they had to admit it did look pretty cool. Kuro chuckles before snapping his fingers again causing the group to go back to watching the events unfold.

Naruto slams his fist into the ground at the loss of nearly 2,500 brothers in arms, men he had fought alongside, joked with, became friends…no brothers in all but blood with. It also meant that they were trapped on Ryloth and sitting ducks for the attack that was sure to come since Striker and the remaining 909th refused to carry out Order 66.

The adult Shinobi lower their heads for a moment at the loss of so many lives and remembering all the friends they have lost in their lives.

Naruto sighs "We will have a memorial service for those we lost, and then go from there since we are basically trapped here. We must also prepare for the imminent attack that is sure to take place due to you and the others refusing to carry out Order 66…thanks for that by the way" he says with a chuckle at the end.

Striker nods hearing this and gives a quick salute "Understood General I will let the others know…and Naruto don't mention it after all "Those who abandon the mission are scum but those who abandon or betray their comrades are lower than Hutt shit"" he says with a smirk before heading off to tell the other clones the news.

Naruto sits there for a moment before chuckling before his mood becomes somber as the last 24 hours finally sinks in.

The group looks on in sadness at the almost broken look that adorns the face of the Naruto they are watching.

*End Flashback*

Naruto is snapped out of his thoughts when he notice Striker trying to get his attention "Naruto Cham Sindula is calling again" he says holding out a communication disk with a beeping light.

Naruto sighs hearing this before taking the disk and answering the call as the 6 inch tall blue holographic from of a male Twi'Lek appears "Cham what can I do for you?" he asks already having an idea of what he is going to say.

Kakashi rubs his chin in thought "So that is what a Twi'Lek looks like" he states in observation.

Kuro chuckles "Yes that is what the males look like, the females however are a different story" he says mysteriously.

The holographic figure smiles "Naruto my friend our sensor indicated the incoming Imperial forces and we wish to aid you in the fight against them. The Twi'Lek people wish to stand alongside those who have helped us protect our home" he says with enthusiasm and determination.

Naruto sighs hearing this as it isn't the first time Cham and his people offered to help them in the fight against the Imperials when they arrived "Cham we have been over this before I will not allow you to put the future of your entire people at stake for us. This isn't like in the Clone Wars my friend the Imperials are coming her with the sole purpose of killing not only myself but also the entire remaining 909th. Furthermore this isn't a battle for us it is a final stand since there is no way out for us. What you can do for me is protect your family and race, live on and remember us" he says with a smile.

The older shinobi smile seeing this as it seems that this version of Naruto shares the trait to put the safety of other of above his own just like their Naruto does.

Cham is silent for a moment as he thinks about what Naruto just said "Very well my friend I shall abide by your wishes. However you and the 909th shall never be forgotten and will always be considered Heroes to not only Ryloth but also the Twi'Lek people as a whole" he says with a smile.

Naruto smiles hearing this "Thank you my friend and it was an honor knowing and fighting alongside you…oh and look after little Numa for me" he says happily and remembering the little Twi'Lek girl that had become sort of like a mascot to the 909th during their time on the planet.

Cham smiles as he salutes with his right arm across his chest and his fist over his heart "It was an honor fighting alongside you too my friend, and I shall look after little Numa as if she were my own daughter" he says before they bid each other a final farewell and the transmission ends.

Naruto smiles at the holo-disk before using the force to crush it beyond recognition so that the call can't be traced if it lands in enemy hands. He then turns to Striker who already has his helmet back on and his twin DC-17 Blaster Pistols in his hands and nods as the two of them walk to where the rest of the 909th is.

As they reach the rest of the 909th Naruto looks around and gives each and every clone a nod and receives one in return before they get up and take position with their blaster rifles at the ready and begin following behind the two. As they reach the end of the group they stare out at the enemy of over 20,000.

The group gasps seeing this "Holy crap that is a lot of enemies!" Kiba yells. The older shinobi however have different thoughts as they can begin to tell how this battle…no final stand will end.

Naruto whistles seeing this "Well it seems like there a quite a few of them eh boys?" he asks getting a cheer from the 909th. Naruto then pulls two silver cylinders off his belt and holds one in each hand before pressing a button on them causing a blue blade to come to life from the one in his right hand and a red blade from the one in his left hand.

Tenten's eyes begin to sparkle and she begins to drool seeing the weapon as she mutters "I want one" and once again Neji and Lee mentally pray to whatever deity that will listen to never give her one. It was bad enough they had to dodge practically an entire armory when they sparred with her not to mention when they made her angry.

Striker notices this and raises an eyebrow though it was hidden by his helmet "You are going to use "Crimson Fury" for this last stand General?" he asks a little surprised since Naruto rarely used the red bladed lightsaber.

Naruto just chuckles hearing this "Striker we are up against the entire 501st and what looks to be the majority of the 212th. That means that the black armor wearing fellow in front if them is bound to be Skywalker and from the hate and anger I sense pouring from him he has become a Sith. Besides it's our final battle so I might as well go all out and make it one that will never be forgotten "he says with a smile at the end getting a chuckle from the clones nearest to them.

Naruto then rolls his shoulders to loosen them up and begins slowly walking forward with the 909th keeping pace right behind him.

As the group continues to watch they suddenly hear music playing and are confused as to where it is coming from.

Kuro sees their confusion and decides to explain it "Sometimes at certain point in time music may begin playing to give the scene that you are watching more feeling and impact" he says explain the music.

*Play "Soldiers/ We Are Soldiers" by Otherwise*

As they walk forward they begin picking up speed and begin to sing as one before they break into a full on run and their final battle begins. The 909th opens fire with their blaster rifles sending blue lights of death at the enemy who fire their own weapons in response. As both sides continue to charge at each other Striker pulls out a detonator and pushes the button on it setting of the hidden explosives they hid beforehand. Explosions tear through the enemy clones killing them by the dozens yet the two sides continue to charge at each other.

The group watches as the two sides engage in battle stunned by what they are seeing. The blue lights going back and forth between the two sides were beautiful in a sense until they realized that when someone was hit by one of the lights they died.

Naruto uses his lightsabers to deflect blast shots back at their senders as he charges straight for the black armored figure wielding a red lightsaber. He reaches the armored figure and the two lock blades "I would say it is nice to see you again Skywalker but that would be a lie" he says as the two continue to clash.

The group is shocked that the version of Naruto they are watching apparently knows the person he is currently fighting.

The armored figure slashes at Naruto only for it to be blocked by Naruto's blue blade "That name no longer has any meaning to me I am now Darth Vader" he says through his helmet.

Naruto raises an eyebrow hearing this and slashes at Vader's arm only for Vader to block his strike "I have to be honest that is a pretty cool name…minus the Darth part of course" he says before spinning an aiming a slash at Vader's abdomen forcing him to jump back. Naruto then lunges forward with a thrust aimed at his right leg only to pull a feint and aim at his stomach.

Vader blocks the feint and slashes at Naruto's chest forcing him to leap back but Vader presses his attack forcing Naruto go on the defensive "You cannot win here Naruto you shall fall just as the rest of the Jedi Order has" he says continuing his attack.

As the group watches the two fight they can't help but be amazed by their skill in using their lightsabers. It was as if the two were opposing storms battering against each other in a dance of death.

Naruto barely managing to keep the lethal lightsaber of his once friend from slicing him to pieces manages a small smile "I know I am going to fall here Vader but I will still fight on regardless. As for the Jedi Order falling yes it has been dealt a tremendous blow but that doesn't mean that it is defeated. So long as there are people out there who believe in what the Jedi stand for they will never be truly defeated. Sooner or later you, the Empire, and your so called Master will be defeated and the Republic shall once again rise from the ashes, and the Jedi will return to protect it along with the galaxy" he says before launching his final counter attack.

The older shinobi smile hearing this version of Naruto's words as it reminds them of the Will of Fire that Konoha is famous for. The younger shinobi however begin to get the sense that the Naruto they are watching might not survive the fight judging from his words.

Naruto swipes at Vader's chest only for his attack to be blocked. He then swings his red blade at Vaders left arm sever the robotic limb at the elbow causing Vader to let out a howl of pain. Vader swings his lightsaber in rage and severs Naruto's left arm at the shoulder causing Naruto to let out a howl of pain as he jumps back.

The group cheers seeing Naruto inflict such a blow on his enemy only to gasp when his arm is severed by Vaders counterattack.

Naruto looks at where his left arm used to be then at the sparking stump of Vader's left arm and chuckles "It looks like we have "Disarmed" each other" he says with a dry chuckle only to receive silence as a response from Vader.

The group deadpans and looks at Naruto who is chuckling raises an eyebrow "What I thought it was clever?" he asks.

The rest of the group sweat drops hearing this "I thought it was amusing as well" a voice says startling them as they turn to see Shino adjusting his sunglasses. He had been so quiet that everyone had actually forgotten that he was there with them.

Naruto sighs seeing this "Yeah I know not one of my best lines but oh well. How about we finish this with one final attack like we used to when you went by Anakin Skywalker?" he suggests.

Vader thinks it over for a moment before nodding "Very well one final time we shall clash and finally determine which of us is stronger" he says as he readies his blade.

Naruto smiles hearing this "Oh yeah that's right we are tied at 49 wins each" he says readying his own blade. The two stare at each other for a moment before they charger their and clash one final time kicking up a dust cloud that blocks them from view.

The group curses seeing this "Dammit what happened!" Ino yells at not being able to see due to the dust.

When the dust clears Naruto has a smile on his face and is seen with Vader's red blade sticking out of his back and his own lightsaber deactivated in his hand.

The group gasps seeing this as tears begin to form in the eyes of a few of them. While this wasn't their Naruto it was still hard to watch. Naruto on the other hand was having phantom pains to when Sasuke shoved a Chidori through his chest in their fight at the Valley of the End.

Vader seeing this scowls behind his helmet "Why did you deactivate your blade and allow yourself to be impaled?" he asks enraged that Naruto would just throw the fight.

The group is shocked to hear this wondering why that version of Naruto would do such a thing.

Naruto coughs and some blood trickles down the side of his mouth as he manages a weak smile "Because even if you have betrayed the Jedi, killed your former comrades, and become a Sith you are still my friend deep down inside. You are just lost in the dark, but one day I feel you will make your way back into the light…Besides I miss Aayla and want to be with her again" he says a weak smile on his face.

The group listens to that version of Naruto's reasons for his actions and is shocked. They then see a similarity between that version of Naruto and Vader, and the relationship between their Naruto and Sasuke which worries them.

Vader's eyes widen hearing this "You mean that you and her were…" he begins trailing off as he sees Naruto nod.

Naruto looks up at the sky for a moment and smiles "Yeah were together and kept it secret, we were actually planning to retire from the order when the war ended so we wouldn't have to keep it secret" he says confirming Vader's suspicions.

As Naruto coughs again and more blood trickles down the side of his mouth and knows his time is short "You think an old friend can ask for a dying wish?"he asks.

Vader is shocked by Naruto's question but nods "Very well out of respect for your skills I shall grant you a dying wish" he says.

Naruto chuckles hearing this as it confirms that his hunch about there still being a little of Anakin left inside Darth Vader "I wish to be cremated as a Jedi…and that you do not harm the people of Ryloth. They had no part in our battle and did not help us in anyway and they are innocent" he says.

Vader thinks it over for a moment before nodding "You last requests shall be honored go into the force in peace" he says s the light from Naruto's eyes fades and he passes on becoming one with the force.

By this point multiple people in the group have tears running down their cheeks. While they might not have known that version of Naruto he was still in essence Naruto and it was hard seeing him die. Hinata is openly crying as she had to witness a version of the boy she loved die which hurt her as it could just as easily happen to her Naruto. she makes a silent promise to herself that when they return to Konoha she will tell him about her feelings for him.

Naruot meanwhile has his head lowered and is shedding silent tears for the death of a version of himself. It was surreal for him to witness the death and a wake up call that he himself could easily die on a mission. He silently vowed to himself to stop acting immature and start training harder than ever.

Kuro seeing the group needs a minute silently pauses the scene to give everyone a moment. After a few minutes the group recovers "I am sorry you all had to see that is it was probably hard to watch. However I as I stated before there may be times when you see things that are hard to watch. After watching these times I will give all of you a moment to gather yourselves before we continue watching. However I will say that this story doesn't end here" he says before starting the scene again.

Several Hours Later

Darth Vader watches as the last of the flames that engulfed the deceased body of Jedi Knight Naruto Uzumaki die out when a clone trooper wearing the standard ARC trooper armor with Orange stripes on it walks up to him.

The trooper salutes before speaking "Lord Vader we have finished counting the losses, we suffered 9,090 casualties, and 909 wounded. All of the remaining 2,500 traitors belonging to the 909th Maelstrom Corps have been counted and every single one of them are dead" the clone says dutifully.

Jiraiya lets a small smile to his face "It's kind of symbolic that the 909th inflicted that specific number of casualties and wounded on the enemy when you think about it" he says getting nods from the others.

Vader is silent for a moment before speaking "What of their bodies?" he asks the clone.

The clone nods acknowledging the question before speaking "As per your orders a grave was dug for each of them and they were buried with their rifles sticking in the ground in front of them and their helmets resting on their blasters." The clone says before pausing "My lord permission to ask a question?" he asks the dark lord of the sith.

Vader thinks for a moment before nodding "Permission granted Commander Cody" he says to the now named Cody.

Cody is silent for a moment "My lord these men were traitors to the Empire for not following their orders, why were they given such treatment after their deaths?" the clone asks confused as to why traitors would be given individual graves instead of being left to rot where they fell.

Vader is slightly surprised by the clones question but answers none the less "While they may have been traitors at the end of their lives they were some of the most elite soldiers during the war. The missions they went on protected the Empire while it was still the Republic and ensured it's continued survival until the time was right for it to become the Empire it is now. That alone is enough for them to be buried in thy way they were. However when they did betray the Empire they did not take the coward's way out by running and hiding. Instead they stood their ground even though they knew they were going to die, they faced their imminent death with dignity, honor, and without fear. Those are the reasons why they were given such treatment in regards to their burial Commander" Vader says explaining his reasoning.

Vader then begins to walk towards his transport "Commander Cody order the troops back to the ship we are done here" he says getting a salute from the clone. Vader takes one last look at the ashes of where his deceased former friend lay before continuing on his way.

The group smiles a little seeing this as it seems that version of Naruto was right and there is still some good left in Vader.

*Unknown Location*

Naruto opens his eyes to see himself in what appears to be a white void of nothingness. He gets up and looks around to see Striker and the rest of the 909th including those who died when the Red Fox self destructed which confuses him. He then spots two figures standing not far from them causing his eyes to widen as he recognized them.

The group is shocked to see this as they had just saw that version of Naruto die.

The first is clearly a clone trooper and like Striker he is wearing Arc trooper armor. However unlike the orange and blue paint that signifies Striker being part of the 909th this trooper has an almost burnt-yellow color stripes on his armor. There is also a visor on the top of his helmet in place of the antenna that is on Strikers helmet. This was Commander Bly of the 327th Star Corps…the same group of clone troopers that Aayla was the Jedi General of.

The other figure was a cerulean blue skinned Twi'Lek woman with chocolate brown eyes. She had a curvy figure with High CC-Cup breasts a thin waist and curvy hips. She was wearing a brown skin tight leather low-cut long sleeve top that exposed a fair amount of her cleavage and ended just above her mid-riff, a pair of Brown skin-tight leather pants that hugged her curvy hips and brown leather boots. On her head was a brown leather head dress that had leather strips wrapped protectively around her head tails or "Lekku" as they called.

The group is stunned by Aayla's appearance and beauty. Most of the males of the group have to pinch their noses to stop the blood that was beginning to drip from them. The females on the other hand are speechless by her elegant beauty and flawless blue skin that only enhances it.

Jiraiya begins to giggle perversely only to pale when he feels someone glaring at him. He turns his head to see Naruto giving him a death glare with his eyes red with black slits "Pervy-sage you had better not be thinking of using Aayla in any way for your smut. If you do use her as a character model or even use her name I WILL CUT OFF YOUR MANHOOD, FEED IT TO YOU, AND THEN KILL YOU! IS THAT UNDERSTOOD!?" he yells his voice sounding demonic.

Jiraiya quickly nods his head and makes a mental note to NEVER use any girl that he sees in the various worlds as "Research Material".

Anko lets out a whistle seeing Naruto like this "Damn Gaki that was HOT!" she says before getting slapped upside the back of the head by Kurenai and receiving a slight glare from Hinata who reluctantly had to agree with her.

Kuro clears his throat "With that over how about we turn our attention back to what is happening" he suggests trying to change the subject.

Both Naruto and Aayla spot each other and rush to each other embracing the other as they meet with their foreheads resting against the others. Tears of joy rolled down their cheeks at finally seeing each other again.

Naruto leans back and cups Aayla's cheek with a smile "I missed you my blue angel" he says before gently pressing his lips to hers expressing all of his pent up emotions that were in him in the month since he felt her death through the force.

The females of the group "Aww" at the romantic moment while the guys nudge a blushing Naruto. Anko smirks "Dam Gaki who knew you could be such a romantic" she teases causing him to blush even more.

After a few minutes the two part to hear clapping and turn to see the smirking faces of Striker, the 909th, and Commander Bly causing the two to blush slightly as they remember they aren't alone. Naruto rubs the back of his neck sheepishly "Whoops forgot we weren't along here…wherever here is" he says before the group is blinded by a bright light.

When the light dies down it reveals a white haired woman with golden eyes wearing a white kimono. The woman looks at Naruto and smiles "You are a hard person to find Naruto Uzumaki, for the last 18 years I have been looking for you since you disappeared from your dimension on the night of you birth" she says shocking the group.

Naruto just stares at the strange woman with a confused expression on the face and manages to say "Huh?" causing the woman to sweat drop.

Naruto like his counterpart is also confused and simply says "Huh?" causing the group to sweat drop. The adults of the group however begin to worry a little as it seems like the secret regarding the night of Naruto's birth and a certain fox with nine tails might be revealed.

The woman coughs into her fist to regain her composure "Allow to introduce myself my name is Hikari or Kami if you will one of the three great goddesses of the multi-verse. Now as I said for the last 18 years I have been looking for you after you vanished into thin air after the Kyuubi no Kitsune was sealed into you on the night of your birth" she says introducing herself and once again stating she had been looking for him.

The adults of the group curse under their breaths at the secret being revealed to the younger generation. Naruto meanwhile looks down at his friends finding out the truth about the Kyuubi and fearing that they will treat him like the majority of the villagers.

The younger Ninja gasp hearing the news about their friend and he Kyuubi but Hinata walks up to Naruto and hugs him shocking him "You are not the Kyuubi Naruto-kun" she says with all of her courage at hugging the boy she loves. Naruto is shocked by Hinata's words and returns the hug with tears running down his cheeks.

Tsunade smiles seeing this before turning to the other Genin "All right listen up cause this is the truth of what happened the night of the Kyuubi attack" she says before explain what really happened the night the Kyuubi attacked. By the end of the explanation the younger generation was shocked to by what they had just heard.

Kuro then clears his throat getting their attention "Actually Tsunade-san I shouldn't be telling any of you this but the Kyuubi is not at fault for its actions that night since it was being controlled. In fact of the Bijuu the Kyuubi is one fo the most peaceful like the Sanbi and Nibi" he says shocking the group that not only wsa the Kyuubi not at fault for it's actions but also was rather peaceful.

Naruto raises an eyebrow hearing this "If that is the case then how come whenever I met with the Kyuubi it was all "Puny Human I will eat your soul and take over your body"?" he asks

Kuro chuckles hearing this "That is because it was still trying to fight off the mind-control of the man responsible for it's attack. In fact since I brought all of you here the effect have more than likely wore off…and on that note" he says before snapping his fingers causing a massive shadow to loom over the group. The group looks up and pales upon seeing the Kyuubi…free. Kuro smiles at the Kyuubi and waves "Yo good to see you again Kurama!" he yells.

The now named Kurama blinks before looking down and spotting Kuro "Kuro what the hell are you doing here last thing I remember is us playing poker the night before my previous container was due to give birth" Kurama says confused.

Kuro chuckles "Well my friend you were ripped out of your previous container after she gave birth and basically mind fucked into attack the Leaf Village before being sealed into the blonde boy who is scared shitless along with the rest of the group underneath you" he says.

Kuram looks down and spots the group shaking in fear especially the blonde haired boy "Oh hello down there allow me to formally introduce myself I am Kurama the Kyuubi no Kitsune it's nice to meet all of you" he says casually snapping everyone out of their shocked states.

Jiraiya looks at Kuro with a panicked expression "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT YOU HAVE DONE!" he yells in a panicked voice.

Kuro just raises an eyebrow "I temporarily let Kurama out of the seal without killing Naruto so that he could watch the events too. Besides I don't see what the big deal is I already told you Kurama isn't at fault for his actions and is actually peaceful" he says casually.

Kurama hears this and decides to break the ice "I would like to apologize for my actions that night. I should have been strong enough to fight of the mind control but I wasn't and for that I am sorry" he says sounding genuinely sorry.

Hinata hearing this walks over to one of Kurama's paws and rubs it's fur shocking him and the group "You are not to blame Kurama-san so there is nothing you need to apologize for" she says.

Kurama's eyes widen before he smiles and shrinks his size down to that of a average fox and nuzzles against Hianta's leg "Thank you for your kind words Hinata-san" he says.

Kuro sees this and smiles "With that out of the way how about we continue okay" he suggest.

Naruto then realizes something "Wait Kuro-san how do you know Kyuu- I mean Kurama" he asks.

Kuro smiles "Oh Kurama and I go way back in fact we are actually poker buddies and usually meet every Friday for our weekly game…by the way Kurama you still owe me 4 steaks from the last game" he says causing Kurama to curse under his breath at Kuro remembering that since it was over 13 years ago. Kuro then claps his hands "Alright no more distractions lets continue where we left off" he says as the group turns their attention back to the scene.

Naruto just scratches his head in confusion "Um I honestly have no idea what you are talking about in regards to this Kyuubi no Kitsune. However I was found on the steps of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant when I was just an infant" he says not really understanding what was going on.

Hikari just face palms hearing this "Okay this is getting us no where how about I just show you the world you come from, give you a brief history about the inhabitants, and explain the whole Kyuubi no Kitsune situation to you will that help?" she says getting nods from the group. Hikari then goes on to explain that he comes from a world of mercenaries called "Shinobi" or "Ninja's" and that by using a internal system of energy called "Chakra" they are able to do amazing things like breathe fire and walk on water to just name a few.

The group of shinobi sweat drops at the generalized description of their way of life not sure if they should take it as a complement or insult.

Hikari then goes on to explain how the night of Naruto's birth the Kyuubi no Kitsune one of the 9 Bijuu who are the guardians of the Elemental Nations and sadly have been misunderstood and sealed away into living people to be used as weapons in times of war. Seeing the appalled faces of the group Hikari then goes on to explain that not all "Jinchuriki" as they are called are created for such a reason and that it is sometimes a necessity to protect not only the Bijuu but also the people as was Naruto's case.

Hikari explains that the night of Naruto's birth a man came and kidnapped his mother Kushina Uzumaki who had just given birth to him and ripped the Kyuubi out of her as she was the previous Jinchuriki. The man then went on to use a special technique to force the Kyuubi to attack the Hidden Leaf Village or Konoha which was Naruto's home village. Naruto's father Minato Namikaze was forced to seal the Kyuubi into Naruto to protect the village which the Kyuubi had been destroying at the time. However after the sealing was finished Naruto vanished right in front of his parent's eyes.

Naruto is speechless at what he just heard. The identity of his parents has been something he has wanted to know for as long as he could remember. To find out that your hero who you look up to was not only your father but also the man who was responsible for the majority of the sadness in his life was just too much to take in. Then there is the identity of his mother someone who he has wanted to know about possibly even more than his father. The rest of his age group is shocked to find out that their friend is the son of the Yondaime Hokage.

Naruto looks up at Jiraiya who has a saddened look on his face "You knew who my parents were, the Sandaime knew who my parents were and lied to my face every time I asked him who they were…" he says trailing off near the end.

Jiraiya looks down at Naruto and sighs "Yes we knew Naruto but we kept it secret for your own safety. Your parents were incredibly strong and had a LOT of enemies some of which are even inside Konoha itself. If they knew that you were the son of Minato and Kushina you would have had numerous attempts on or life or kidnapping attempts before you were even a year old let alone any older. It is for that reason that Sarutobi-sensei and I kept your heritage a secret until you were old enough to protect yourself" he says explaining his and the Sandaime's reasons for keeping Naruto's heritage a secret.


The Jonin sensei seeing Naruto relentlessly beating on Jiraiya pull Naruto off his bleeding and likely broken body as best they can but have trouble. Kurama seeing this jumps out of a shocked Hinata's arms and grows to the size of a horse before wrapping his tails around Naruto and pulling him off of Jiraiya "ENOUGH NARUTO!" he yells.

Naruto turns to look at the fox his eyes still a sulphiric yellow "YOU! YOU ARE THE ONE WHO KILLED THEM SO WHY SHOULD I LISTEN TO A WORD YOU SAY!" he yells.


Naruto is shocked to hear this and begins to calm down and his eyes return to normal and he begins to cry. Off to the side the majority of the other Genin have tears in their eyes at what they just witnessed. None of them could imagine being able to go through what Naruto had and still being sane let alone being able to smile.

The Jonin sensei are of a like mind as their students. Anko on the other hand sympathizes with Naruto as she has received a similar treatment due Orochimaru being her former sensei.

Jiraiya who had managed to pick himself up, he honestly wasn't surprised regarding Naruto's reaction to finding out the truth. As he got up he turned to see Tsunade glaring at him "You have a lot of explaining to do Jiraiya" she says in a dangerous voice

Jiraiya gulps seeing this "What do you want me to say Tsunade? Sarutobi-sensei and I did what we did for Naruto's safety" he says.

Tsunade narrows her eyes hearing this "Is that why the two of you lied to me about Naruto being adopted and living happily with his adopted family?"

Jiraiya sighs "Yes we lied to you about that so you couldn't fulfill you duties as his Godmother just like how I didn't make contact with him till the month long break before the Chunin Exam Finals. Your close friendship with Minato and Kushina was well known and if it was discovered that you were taking care of a blonde haired baby people would connect the dots." he says only to receive a punch from Tsunade as a result sending him to the floor.

Tsunade stares at the down form of Jiraiya "When we get back to Konoha I am adopting Naruto like I should have been allowed to after Minato and Kushina's deaths. Furthermore I will be having Katsuya-sama get in contact with Gamabunta and the other Toads and tell her of your transgressions regarding Naruto. You are on very thin ice Jiraiya one more misstep and I will see to it that you never see Naruto again" she says before walking back over to the group leaving Jiraiya to reflect on his many mistakes.

Kuro sees Tsunade rejoin them and sighs "Now that most of us have calmed down we can continue" he says before the scene starts playing again.

Naruto rubs his temples as he tries to take in everything he had just been told "Okay so I am from a different dimension and in said dimension my home world is full of people that are basically Mandalorians with super powers. On the night I was born a mad man ripped a giant fox made of this "Chakra" stuff given physical form out of my mother and used it to attack my home village. Then my father who was the leader of said village sealed said fox inside me and I disappeared right before their eyes afterward. I then ended up on the steps of the Jedi Temple and was taken in and trained to be a Jedi. I later entered a secret relationship with my Blue Angel here and later died with my brothers in all but blood. Then to top it all off I end up reunited with Aayla and Bly-Nice to see you again by the way-in some kind of white void and meet a Goddess is that everything so far?" he asks.

Hikari nods her head "Yes that is everything so far" she answers the blonde haired Jedi.

Naruto just nods his head hearing this "Okay now the only question I have is why have you been looking for me for the last 18 years?" he says wondering why a GODDESS would spend so much time looking for a single mortal.

Kakashi raises an eyebrow hearing this "You know he has a point, why would a Goddess search for one person for so much time" he says.

Hikari chuckles hearing this "It is because you the Child of Prophecy in your home dimension. You will either save and revolutionize your home world or destroy it in the darkness that is soon to engulf it" she says finally getting to the reason she had been looking for him.

The group is stunned to hear that Naruto or at least that version of Naruto is such an importance to the future of that version of their home.

Naruto is shocked to hear this but then realizes something "Well that's all and good but there is just one problem with all that…I'm dead" he says with a deadpan expression on his face.

Kiba chuckles hearing this "You know he has a point: he says only to get a smack upside the back of his head before they continue to watch.

Hikari giggles hearing this "Yes you are but I am a GODDESS, I can bring not only you but the rest of you back to life…IF you decide to return to you home world" she says shocking the group.

The group is shocked to hear this but after a moment they remember that she IS a Goddess so it really shouldn't be that surprising that she could bring Naruto, the 909th, and Aayla back to life.

Naruto looks to Striker and the rest of the 909th and he gets a thumbs up from Striker "I say we take the offer General after all the 909th doesn't abandon those we can save" he says getting a cheer from the rest of the 909th. Naruto then looks to Bly who just nods his head in agreement.

Finally Naruto looks to Aayla who has a smile on her angelic face "I say we accept the offer Naruto, after all as Jedi it's our duty to help those in need. Besides it would be nice to see your home world and we could finally be together as a real couple without having to hide it" she says before taking his hand in her own.

Naruto smiles hearing this and kisses her cheek before turning to Hikari "Well it's decided we will accept your offer" he says with a grin.

The group smiles seinge this as it wouldn't be Naruto if he refused to help someone in need when he had the power to do so.

Hikari smiles upon hearing this "Very good now I also have a few gifts for all of you. For the brave clone troopers I have fixed the problem with your DNA that causes rapid aging that would have killed all of you within a decade. You now will all age normally and live have an average human lifespan" she says shocking the clones as they hadn't even known they had such a problem but were grateful it had been fixed.

Hikari then looks at Aayla and smiles "For you Aayla I have awakened your dormant chakra coils. Like Naruto your race has the ability to use chakra but never knew how to access it. This lead to your races chakra coils becoming dormant throughout all the generations" she says shocking Aayla that her race had such ability.

Shizune's eyes widen seeing this "Wow to think that there was a race in that dimension that could have possibly used chakra like we do" she says in wonder.

Hikari then looks to Naruto "For you Naruto I have this as a gift" she says before in a flash of light a little ways from them is the massive form of the "Red Fox" completely restored and looking almost brand new. Hikari giggles seeing the wide eyes of the group "I present to you your ship the "RedFox" she is completely repaired and still the same as she was the last time you saw her. As a bonus I have included all of the equipment and vehicles that were aboard her at the time of her destruction" Hikari states shocking the group even more.

Hikari then mentally chuckles knowing Naruto will like this next bit of news "I have also informed your parents of my success in finding you and they can't wait to see you again and how much you have grown" she says with a kind smile.

The group is shocked to hear that in that world Naruto's parents are alive. Naruto meanwhile can't believe that he will eventually get to see his parents if he keeps watching.

Naruto smiles hearing this "Thank you for everything Hikari and I will do my best to repay you for these gifts" he says with a smile.

Hikari giggles hearing this before pulling out a slip of paper with some numbers on it and hands it to Naruto "This is the location of a spot where you and your group can establish a base of operations away from prying eyes since your home worlds technological level is now where near what you will be bringing with you" she says.

Naruto nods hearing this as he had been to worlds that were not very advanced technology wise and had to do something similar as to not stat a panic "I understand and we will be careful with how we use our technology" he says getting a nod from Hikari. Naruto then begins leading the group towards the "Red Fox", and after they all get inside and the ship is powered up and lifts off the ground Hikari snaps her fingers and they all disappear.

*In Space Orbiting Naruto's Home world…Now called Elemantia*

The group gasps finding themselves floating in space above what they assume is their home planet.

In the empty space around Elemantia a bright flash appears and when it dies down it reveals the massive triangle shaped from of the "Red Fox". On the bridge of the mighty Venator-Class ship Naruto, Aayla, Striker, and Bly look out the view ports at Naruto's home world and are amazed by its beauty.

Naruot then gives the order for landing preparations to begin as he looks at the coordinates Hikari had given him. As he looks back up at Elemenatia through the view ports an eager grin came to his ace as he felt things were going to be getting pretty interesting after all The Maelstrom had Returned.

The scene suddenly begisn to fade to black and the group looks over to Kuro "Well that is the end of the first part of and before we begin the second part we will have a short break. Use this time to get something to eat and relax while reflecting on what you have just seen" he says as table of food and drink appears.
