She’s confident, sarcasticly witty, and tends to be rather critical. Since she managed to develop her Byakugan at a young age and showed quite some potential, the position as heiress of the clan is hers. And she’s happy about it. First Post Example: Something is very wrong here. Why, you ask? Well, I think I just saw someone who looks exactly like me pass by. No, I don’t think I did. I know I did. …I’m going to hunt them down now. If I find them, and it’s some kid from the Academy who decided that posing as Hyuuga Hinata would get them passing marks…heh, they’re gonna have to change then >DSmall Drabble (opional): (I’d rather not. My drabbles are lame.)Comments/Questions: This looks like fun, and, um, well, I’d really like to join :D
Your application was good, but unfortunately we already have a confident Hinata. We can't have two, so... You're very welcome to reaply for another character.

YouName: CorinneAge: 20LiveJournal: allhisenginesCharacter You're applying forRequested Character: Uzumaki NarutoIs the Requested Character IC, DIC or OOC?: OOCIf OOC, What Changes Are You Making?: This Naruto is one smart cookie. He can be ditzy and is normally quite funny, but he is also well-known for his smarts. The most notable difference, though, is that he wears no orange. His favorite color is red and wears a red and black training uniform at most times. First Post Example: Besides the fact that I seem to have been launched into an alternate dimension, things are just plain confusing today. I went to see Sasuke to give him an update on our upcoming mission's status, which Tsunade changed, again,and was given a cold shoulder the likes of which I've never experienced in my life. I mean, I know Sasuke can get grumpy occasionally, but come on. So after a short, and I mean very short, interaction with him where he didn't speak to me and seemed to be absolutely unaffected by my report I left the Complex to go back home. Kakashi was not there and neither was my room. Somehow, in less than half an hour, the breakfast he was cooking dissapeared, he dissapeared, and my bedroom seems to be non-existant. When I found him next to the Hokage tower, looking for Tsunade to figure out what the hell happened to my stuff, he asked me if Iruka finally took me shopping for non-orange clothing. I have never worn orange in my whole life. What the hell is going on?? Small Drabble (optional):Comments/Questions: This Naruto's world is/was one in which he is decent friends with Sasuke, close gossip-friends with Sakura, and is the favored student of Kakashi, with whom he has been living with for a short time because of an accident at his apartment complex.

I'm not happy unless I'm doing something aggressively over-complicated. *sighs*YouName: Lyko~Age: 25LiveJournal: lykomancer, fanficcing journal metamorpheCharacter You're applying forRequested Character: OrochimaruIs the Requested Character IC, DIC or OOC?: (What's DIC? Not familiar with that.) Alternate timeline OOC.If OOC, What Changes Are You Making?: In one version of Konoha's past, the ledgendary sannin was not caught experimenting on his fellow villagers due to extended inter-village warring which provided him with all the bodies he needed and the distraction to keep attention off of him. Sarutobi, feeling the weight of age and wishing to retire, had not chosen Jiraiya's preternaturally clever student as the Fourth, deeming him too young and reckless to hold the village together during wartime, and instead, with the backing of the council, had passed the title of Hokage on to Orochimaru. Still brilliant, utterly ruthless, clever, and charismatic, Orochimaru had everything he could want-- power and almost unquestionable authority. First Post Example: (I rather tend toward 3rd person POV, which is how I've done this, though I don't know whether you prefer that or 1st person. This is also pretty painfully generic, for which I apologize.Orochimaru was reminded of one of that idiot Jiraiya's novels-- not that he'd ever admit to having actually read that trash; lost in a wonderland full of natives with familiar faces, where everything was the same but stood on its head, the protagonist had wandered a long and winding road toward a seemingly impossible goal, gaining peculiar allies along the way.He had no goal of his own, not yet, except in the sense that he always had a goal and knew exactly what he wanted, but Orochimaru sensed that there was much in this strange new place which he could bend to his will.So many more lost souls, all crying out for redemption...and he'd save them, oh yes he would. He'd lift them up and point the way, and they'd serve him faithfully, living and dying just for him. The Yondaime smiled, pleased and confident. Why have just one village when one could have many? It was all a matter of perspective, and he could see the future so much better than everyone else.Time to start setting things into motion.
Comments/Questions: There are somethings that need clarification, simply because I'm screwing with the whole timeline. Jiraiya and Tsunade: Remained in Konoha both because of the continued battles (which Orochimaru orchestrated, feeling that Konoha would lean more heavily on him in times of war, willing to overlook his...oddities...in favor of his power), and to keep an eye on their slippery teammate.The kyuubi: By the time the kyuubi attacked, Orochimaru had completed his immortality jutsu, which is how he survived the fight with the fox. (Which he confronted fearlessly, not because of any particular concern for the villagers-- though even he realizes that his base of power rests on the very people he looks down on and thinks so little of-- but because he couldn't resist the challege.) The end result was the same-- the kyuubi was still sealed...but Orochimaru did the deed-- not using shiki fuujin, but a different jutsu-- for which he used the life force of his number one in-village political adversary, Jiraiya's loud mouthed blond student, killing him. Tsunade was the only witness to this "sacrifice"...and though she resents Orochimaru's use of the boy, she recognizes that sealing the kyuubi by anything method was nessecary. Because of Orochimaru's method, no child was branded with the weight of the fox.Kabuto: Still around. Still serving Orochimaru in this world much as in canon.Itachi: There was no Uchiha clan massacre, due to the constant warring, leaving Orochimaru with a whole LOT of Uchihas to choose his bodies from. He began grooming Itachi as pupil and possible future body when the boy's sharingan opened, but Itachi's never cared for Orochimaru as as he grew up, developed an open cold dislike for the sannin, forcing Orochimaru to turn his attention to Itachi's little brother, Sasuke. Orochimaru's charisma and young Sasuke's yearning for recognition and approval feed into each other, and at this time, all of Konoha suspect that Sasuke will be the next Hokage. What they don't know is that Sasuke's body will wear the Hokage's robes, but Orochimaru's mind will still be reining over the village through the new vehicle of Sasuke's flesh.
YouName: MetakaAge: 21LiveJournal: ladymetakaCharacter You're applying forRequested Character: Uchiha ItachiIs the Requested Character IC, DIC or OOC?: OOCIf OOC, What Changes Are You Making?: What if Itachi found another way to get away from the clan, instead of killing them? Namely, moving out of the compound and getting his own place in Konoha? This is the story of what could have been! Our favorite genius still hates his clan, but loves socializing and going out with cute girls. First Post Example:Well, this is an improvement over the hovel I've been living in. I finally managed to get an apartment. It's on the other side of Konoha from the compound, too. The needles I keep finding by the front door aren't that bad. Really.I swear I need more sleep, though. I keep seeing people walking around... and then seeing them walking around with themselves... It's not healthy to see double, is it?Oh well. Who wants to come party at my place? Small Drabble (optional):It was the only way to get away. Well, that wasn't true. But Itachi didn't want to leave the village, and didn't trust them to take care of Sasuke. Besides, other shinobi his age were starting to move out on their own anyway. He knew he was defying tradition, but hadn't he spent his entire life doing that?"Aniki?"He turned. Sasuke clung to the doorway, watching him with wide black eyes. "Yes?""You're really... you know..." the boy's eyes lowered, and he whispered the forbidden words. "Moving away?"Itachi smiled, feeling very tired. "I'll still be in the village. I just won't be living in the compound anymore.""When are you going to tell Father?" Sasuke pouted, looking worried.Never, if Itachi had anything to do with it. His father had a way of abusing the Sharingan to get his way, and Itachi was sick of it. He was strong enough to fight the Uchiha patriarch, but he feared he may be too much stronger than the older man. He had a feeling he'd lose his job as an Anbu captain if he killed his father, even on accident."I'll tell them when the time comes, Sasuke." he finally said, reaching over and patting the boy's hair. "Don't worry so much about it. You'll be able to see me whenever you want."Sasuke beamed and ran off, and Itachi returned to packing his belongings, his resolve only strengthened. He would escape this stranglehold the clan had on him, and protect Sasuke from the same fate, if it meant his life.Comments/Questions: If you would rather have an IC!Itachi, let me know ^_^ I can RP that as well. If there's any part of this you don't like, just let me know and I"ll polish it up. I look forward to playing with everyone!

YouName: Rachael.Age: 20. This is the first time I've gotten to say that.LiveJournal: shadhahvarCharacter You're applying for: OOC!Sakura.Requested Character: ...I'm a dork. OOC!Sakura.Is the Requested Character IC, DIC or OOC?: Holy carp I'm redundant. OOC.If OOC, What Changes Are You Making?: Well. This may be mildly interesting. Sakura never crushed on Sasuke. Why? The situation in her world was different - in my opinion, she founds something to be attracted to in Sasuke independent of his... I suppose physique and "coolness" as a child. Since his story is unimportant to hers, I'll keep speaking on what's up with Haruno Sakura.As a child, she was still reclusive, and her friendship with Ino never gave her the strength we see cannonically. Rather, Sakura, with her inward conviction, began to show a defined personality split by the age of seven. Her mother, as her father had been killed during the Kyuubi attack (making Sakura's mother pregnant with Sakura at the time), was unsure what to do with her daughter, who would switch from calmly demur and shy to foul-mouthed, sneaky, and perverse. Sakura is aware of what goes on at all times she lapses into her "darker" side, but has limited control over her actions. To others, it more appears Sakura is two-faced, being shy and reclusive and not incredibly sociable (standoffish, if you will) to cover her brazen ass the rest of the time. Likewise, she doesn't earn many friends, and out of severe embarrassment with her "other" self, Sakura kept others at a distance. She is afraid of being hurt, or hurting other's feelings - but part of this was negated during the chuunin exams.Her genin team was the same, though her feelings for her teammates were vastly different. Sakura, who still excelled at book smarts, was not, in her dominant personality, all that aggressive. If anything, she was withdrawn, and more prone to running away - which is what can trigger her second personality into coming to the forefront. Missions have habitually brought out Sakura's "second" side, something her sensei (Kakashi) made note of and passed onto Sarutobi, who had known of her tendancies for years. His influence had been through Iruka and carefully arranged training sessions meant to hone Sakura's control of her mind-slide. Now, at seventeen, Sakura is capable of effecting some control on her attitude switch, and displays traits of both personalities at a given time. The largest influence has been her dominant personality in her "second" personality - she's no longer die-hard confrontational.Part of the difference this had on her life was the distorted drive to being a medical ninja. Time made her fond of her teammates, but Sasuke's defection to Oto so baffled and hurt her (she, as Naruto, saw it as abandonment, and after, like Naruto, not having had friends before, this cut deeply) that she determined to make herself invaluable to those where were left - in whatever fashion, this determination, not for herself, but for otehrs, reached Sarutobi (who had not been killed, in this universe, for various reasons). Sarutobi, in turn, reached Tsunade. Through a mission with Jiraiya and Naruto, to which Sakura was at first uninformed, during which Naruto was dealing with the betrayal of Sasuke and the weakening of Kyuubi's seal.Sakura tracked them down, and in a strange combination of her reactions and Naruto's, ended up being taken on by Tsunade... who found, perhaps the first to find so, her personalities could be united on specific fronts - as in training. She opened up a bit during this time, when she could be pried away from almost obsessive training and the depression she'd initially slumped into when Jiraiya and Naruto were training at large for three and a half years. However, unlike in canon, thier retrieval arc (initially) with Sasuke ended... very badly. Naruto was severely injured, Sai was killed (no abrupt shift to being the good guy ninja) and Yamato was put into a coma that Sakura couldn't coax him out of for a good three days - and even then, the only reason she had tried to meddle so was because of the need to escape.
Which comes to the next part. Sasuke and Sakura had not gotten along, on seeing each other again. Sakura's "second" side was utterly dominant, and at the point in which Yamato was put into a coma, she'd had her hand in Sasuke's stomach... and his sword through her right shoulder. Both escaped alive, but Sakura was left with two heavily injured men (not to menton herself) and one dead partner. Sheer ingenuitiy with her chakra management, alongside Naruto's healing time on Kyuubi's half, kept all three alive. Summarily, on return to Konoha, Naruto fell into a funk, and lashed out at Sakura. Likewise, Sakura, reverting to her withdrawn, shy, introvertive "main" nature, withdrew --- at the cost of still being uncomfortably at odds with him when Akatsuki made thier move on Konoha after him.She comes to this universe mid-battle, having been knocked unconscious in the process of trying to break Naruto from Itachi's Mangekyou, by Naruto's own confused actions. She does not know if he survived, and is disorientated, relying more on her "second" personality to pull her through than anything else.First Post Example:They're telling me this is a different place, and it's not hard to believe. No one's in the same panic as they were 24 hours ago. I can't find Naruto, but then again, everything is a bit.. off. I don't know what they think they're explaining to me. She understands; so even if I didn't want to, I'd know.I've felt too unsettled the last week. Now I know I'm in shock, or I would have broken down. I don't like the thought, since this will bring her out. I don't know this world well enough to... Ha. Look at little Haruno Sakura, babbling on about "worlds." The fuck she knows the difference. I do. Whole new playground, whole new set of rules. Seems like there're duplicates of us all over, and not all stay the same. Should make for interesting hunting grounds. The shy one might have inhibitions, but that's why she's a wet blanket and I'm the fucking fire.Let's see how long I ride dominant. Could be a whole new life for me, and her. Us. Ha! Tsunade once thought we'd merge.Guess again.Small Drabble (opional):Sakura could never be pinned down for long. Her shy, reserved smiles would give way, on provocation, to sly smirks and broken collarbones - deadly, since she knew how much it took to kill a man. It was the most dangerous thing in dealing with her, that knowledge. You only hoped it held itself in check, her apathy overruling her anger.What was there to say? Her direction was almost obsessive, frightening in and of itself. What did it mean, to have her be unstable after all this time? She wasn't the Academy student, not even the genin, who could be so easily controlled. Even Kyuubi had to pause, tails lost in the mire of darkness that was his container, and quietly consider the threat she could pose.Sasuke had learned the hard way. He'd have died if she hadn't been drained, from what? Orochimaru knew. He didn't speak of it. Sasuke didn't care enough to ask. His purpose was different - he didn't question.Maybe Sakura did - or at least, part of her did. The part that didn't stay silent. Was it freeing, to be that way? He couldn't decide.Not that it mattered. They wre all dead, now. Itachi, Naruto... Sakura. Friends and brother, rotting in the ground somewhere. Even if her body hadn't been found, she was dead. He just... knew it.Comments/Questions: The drabble was weird. Hi! *waves very shyly*

MeName: ‘nielaAge: 14 (but never mind that, I’m okay with everything ^^ )Livejournal: shuffledCharacter You're applying for Requested Character: Hyuuga HinataIs the Requested Character IC, DIC or OOC?: OOCIf OOC, What Changes Are You Making?: This Hinata is rather…overly emotional. She tends to read too much into other people’s comments and isn’t very trusting. It takes her a while to actually get close to someone or let someone get close to her. She’s pessimistic. It’s hard for her to see the completely happy side of a situation. She’s also sarcastic and always has a sharp, biting remark waiting to be used on her tongue. She managed to develop her Byakugan, and has considerable power, though she’d really just rather not have it all. She was named the Hyuuga Heiress but she hates it. She’d really rather just give the position to her sister. To sum it all up, this Hinata really needs to work on her people/social skills.First Post Example: My day has been completely screwed up. Completely. See, I was just lazing around, using my selective hearing on my father, when – just something happened. I found myself nowhere near my house, but in this placeThough I am really, really suspicious of these people, these ‘others’. They won’t tell us why I’m here. Why we are here. Yes, there are others. And they look…weird, probably just as suspicious as I am. But, I’ve been hearing these stories, most involving (and cursing) some boy called “Naruto”. That sort of makes me nervous, since I’m seriously hoping it’s not the Naruto I know……my God. I just saw another me, strolling down the street. What the hell?! I want answers. Now. Err…well, I get them once I can think what to say to that lady with the overly large chest that’s been obviously enhanced with - Um, shit, she just looked at me like she knows what I’m thinking. I wasn’t staring, right? Small Drabble (optional): (I’d rather not. My drabbles are lame.)Comments/Questions: Ugh, I couldn't really get her emotional side out in the sample post but she has one > < I really hope emo-rocker!Hinata makes it :D
YouName: CorinneAge: 20LiveJournal: allhisenginesCharacter You're applying forRequested Character: Uzumaki NarutoIs the Requested Character IC, DIC or OOC?: OOCIf OOC, What Changes Are You Making?: Enter angty!smarter!Naruto. While he is still well-known for his pranking, he is equally well known for his smarts. The biggest appreance change is that he wears no orange. His favorite color is red and wears a red and black training uniform at most times. His training was under Kakashi instead of Jiraiya, so he was not part of the 'Bring Tsunade to Konoha' business. He's disliked by the Sannin, for reasons unknown to him (But it is because of his father's, the Yondaime, legacy). He was told by the Third who his mother was; a woman named Tsuiko, a special jounin. She was killed in action. He spends alot of time by himself and does not share the sunny disposition of his IC!self. His closest friends are Lee, Kakashi, and Sasuke. First Post Example: I went to Sasuke's house today to tell him about our newest mission. When I let myself in, like usual, I was met with an intricate set of traps. Since when did Sasuke have reason to keep me out like this? He knew I was coming over! When I found him, he was sitting by himself in his bedroom, which had moved without my knowledge, sulking. The following conversation I had with him is not one that I feel like analyzing right now, but it was beyond unusual. It was completely one-sided and he seemed to have absolutely zero interest in speaking with me. So I left to return home to the breakfast Kakashi promised me. After our mission last night, I could have really used a decent meal. When I arrived at our apartment, no one was home. There was only one bedroom. It was filled with orange. What kind of sick joke is this? Small Drabble (optional):In the darker parts of Naruto's mind, he likes to pretend that his parents are still alive, telling him not to stay out too late and worrying about his well-being. He likes to pretend that, just maybe, had he had the influence of parents, he wouldn't have become a ninja. He wouldn't be stitching this gaping wound in his arm shut because he has exhausted himself of chakra to heal himself. He wouldn't be eating dinner every night by himself, hoping there would be a knock on his door; company, just some company, that's all I want.. But then, if that were the case, he wouldn't be going out tomorrow on a mission with his best friend and his sensei. Hell, he wouldn't even have a best friend or sensei. Maybe the best friend, but not this one. Not the one who is willing to put his fist through another nin's chest to protect him from being gutted. Not the one who wouldn't think twice about holding him as he cried over his lost hopes and his ever more hopeless dreams. Comments/Questions: (This is my second try. Hopefully it will be better?) This Naruto's world is/was one in which he is best friends with Sasuke, not friends with Sakura, and is the favored student of Kakashi, with whom he has been living with for a short time because of an accident at his apartment complex.
YouName: SydAge: 18LiveJournal: xkesshouxCharacter You're applying forRequested Character: Uchiha SasukeIs the Requested Character IC, DIC or OOC?: OOCIf OOC, What Changes Are You Making?: This would be the Sasuke that goes with ladymetaka's Itachi.When Itachi moved out of the Uchiha compound, Fugaku could only spend so much time trying to drag him back. After nearly a month, he began to grill Sasuke as he'd once done Itachi, and the weight of the clan's honor and dignity was rested upon the eight-year-old's shoulders. Pressured as he was by the rest of the clan, Sasuke grew more quickly, his friends barely his own choosing except for one, his best friend, who he'd killed by age 13 to attain the Mangekyou Sharingan. In this universe, it's Sasuke who snaps and kills the clan, but only after Itachi's been sent off to IC world for about a week, so it's a fresh event. In essence, though, the way he grew up makes his personality a bit more like IC Itachi's would be.First Post Example: There were ANBU after me last night, but somehow, they vanished without so much as a trace (I know this because I had just killed one, his body fading away as if I were drawn into a genjutsu, but that's foolish, my Sharingan would have caught a genjutsu). On a whim, I returned to the compound, but the blood and the bodies were gone, and I know for certain that they weren't cleaned up that quickly (Not to mention these bloodstains look to be years old rather than hours). I feel strangely relieved that I don't have to look at them, though.Something is off about all of these events, and I intend to find out what it is. I won't linger in Konoha any longer than I have to, though; it isn't the place for me anymore. I want to see my brother one last time, though...Small Drabble (opional): Sasuke wiped the blood from his blade --their blood, they're all dead -- and slid it with a practiced ease back into its sheath. The ANBU-no, his former teammates would be coming soon, although this time he doubted they would be asking him if he was alright (which honestly made him sick; he was Uchiha Sasuke, pride and prodigy of the Uchiha clan even if his brother was still better than him, he could take perfect care of himself).This time, they'd arrive to the scene of a massacre (not much of a struggle, no, they weren't alive long enough for that, poor fools), the entire Uchiha clan, slaughtered by their so called prodigy. He hadn't planned on leaving so many traces of himself, but in the end he'd realized that there was no way he could have escaped suspicion, so he'd been just a bit careless and a bit too emotional.He suspected they were the cause for Itachi's disappearance a week prior, but that was only one stick to fuel the icy flame of hatred for these people that had been growing since the man who called himself his father gave up (for the most part) on manipulating his eldest son and turned to doing the same to his youngest. Sasuke honestly wondered how something that called itself a family could be so ignorant, and if not that, heartless enough to sit by and let its innocence be stripped away far faster than it should have been. Even his own mother (he'd loved her dearly, but how could she have just sat there and watched?)!But none of it mattered anymore, because they were gone, and nobody was left to do to another child what had been done to him. It was the best and the worst feeling, but he found he had no sympathy for the fallen. They had deserved their fate and brought it upon themselves.Taking to the now silent rooftops, Sasuke didn't bother to look back as he fled, having no regrets in that moment about what he'd done. The only other Uchiha still alive was Itachi, and he was the only one that would be missed. Comments/Questions: If there's anything you think needs changing, let me know and I'll see if I can't try again. Here's hoping!
It's been just about a month since I put this application in, and I was just wondering what was up with you guys? You're probably pretty busy if it's taking this long, so I'll just try to keep being patient.Just letting you know I'm still interested! n_n;
Requested Character: SasukeIs the Requested Character IC, DIC or OOC?: OOCIf OOC, What Changes Are You Making?: Sasuke comes from a world where Itachi was his father. Yep.Shisui was a girl and she and Itachi had a very strong relationship going. Yet, since Shisui was older and a very respected Shinobi, they had to keep it quiet. One day Shisui came up pregnant and yeah it was Sasuke. When Sasuke was born, Itachi's parents began to raise him as their own, but then some crap hit the fan and Itachi killed his whole clan. Itachi then ran away leaving Sasuke to the hokage's care. Sasuke was too young to remember any of the things that Itachi did, only hearing about them in whispers. He one day found out that Itachi was his father and now is on a quest of finding his father and trying to rebuild a broken relationship. Um... He is a pansy and only wants a family. His main goals are rebuilding his clan and finding out why his father did what he did and try and get to know him. :D He is still emo D: because he has no family and is lonely, with a father complex.First Post Example:My... house is gone.Hn.Small Drabble (opional):Comments/Questions: :D ilu

YouName: Rachael. The shot.Age: 20.LiveJournal: shadhahvarCharacter You're applying forRequested Character: Shikamaru.Is the Requested Character IC, DIC or OOC?: OOC.If OOC, What Changes Are You Making?: Ha. Ha ha ha ha ha. Okay. Okay, so we remember femme!Shikamaru? She's back (in black). Shikamaru is significantly older than when she was first in the Game Reality. Now at twenty-six, Shikamaru is significantly more worldly. She also, unlike in her youth, accepts that she does have a vagina, that it likes to bleed, and that anyone with a penis suggesting things that bleed for days on end are not worth speaking to, your intestines probably aren't worth keeping in your belly "If only I could be bothered to deal with you." She's taken on, at one point (under duress) a genin team, and has seen all three of them through chuunin-hood, one to jounin-hood, and one to his grave. Shikamaru herself made jounin after mastering her second element. (Yes, shoot me Em, but that's how Kishimoto tried to cop out on actually having something useful.) Shikamaru thusly reluctantly uses Earth and Lightning/Thunder. She find this works interestingly for her, combined with her increased capabilities with her shadow manipulation. She's also developed a wariness for sand... based on a memory from when she was sixteen and had her leg broken by Gaara (In Game).Shikamaru becomes interesting because she has lived for a signifiant time back in her home reality, and brings up the question of how time passes differently from place to place. She came as an undermotivated chuunin, and returns as a slightly more motivated jounin.How is she motivated? Shikamaru certainly wasn't, before. It all starts with a little giantic demon named Kyuubi. Shikamaru's relationship with the demon had no reasonable origins, and yet... there it was. After a brief split back home, and return to the In Game World (during which she miscarried, a mentally scarring and physically screwing event) Shikamaru was rendered barren due to extensive internal scarring that went unnoted by physicians at the time of her miscarrying the horribly disfigured child. Shikamaru is of two minds when it comes to children - generally keep them the hell away, and occassionally, "Who's taking care of me when I'm old?"Her simple thoughts on life were destroyed long ago.Her "final" return home left her in a somewhat more motivated state, wanting to escape the growing discussion of marriage from her parents, who had no concept of what happened as a result of her miscarriage. No one was aware of the father, or the extended period during which she carried the child, as Shikamaru not only didn't show for the first half, the ill-fated creature inside of her masked it's own presence from others and did a damn fine job of leeching off Shikamaru's body in a fashion more unhealthy than a normal pregnancy. Her body's rejection at miscarriage killed the child and left the tissue scarring in her uterus that rendered her barren, despite irregular (and continued) menstruation.However, her parents were met with joy when she proposed to a man from a small, outlying shinobi village within Konohagakure. Shikamaru was married to "Hinori" within the month of her parent's meeting him (and the impromptu, ringless proposal Shikamaru made when they did meet). The wedding was a small affair, with few people in attendance. As Shikaku still refused to take Shikamaru as less than male (or his rightful son) it was "Hinori" who walked down the aisle in a white tuxedo (though Shikamaru narrowly managed to convince her father that he did not need to hand the "bride" off in place of the "bride's" non-existent father).
Interestingly enough, no record of "Hinori's" existence could be found - anywhere. And then, after an extensive meeting with the Hokage, records were brought forth and placed into the public registry - which was an interesting event in and of itself.The entire thing was a hoax. "Hinori" was none other than Kyuubi, who had found his way to Shikamaru's world by chance, and out of some twisted affectionate boredom, stayed. When Shikamaru had sensed his turn of play toward marriage in front of her domineering father (and blisfully relaxed mother) she stepped in and took the initiative.Shikamaru, to this day, does not choose to accept any feminine role whatsoever.Not only false married to Kyuubi under an alias, her barren womb had the same culprit to thank. Neither much cared, but Shikamaru became the poster-child for protective sex in town (even despite her father's attempted sabotages - man wanted grandchildren) anyway. When dealing with demons, overcaution is suggested.Kyuubi thus became the motivating factor that lead her to Jouninhood (trying to find some way of escaping his attention at given times - while failing, it amused him that she tried) and the eventual granting of her own genin-team (which Kyuubi took an almost sadistic joy in tormenting... in his fashion).No one knows what to say over their relationship - Kyuubi is a master at putting on shows, and has a certain flair for the dramatic if he thinks it will entertain him. Often it does. Often Shikamaru has found herself in interestingly compromising situations where a dry with and laid-back attitude won't simply cut it - with or without the intelligence she is known for.Do they love each other? You don't want to know. Neither of them admit anything, at least not in private moments. You can't be sure, either way. Even if Shikamaru sought "extra maritial" affairs (she argues they can't be, since he's not "Hinori" and thus she'd only be cheating on a piece of literature) Kyuubi's possessive streak makes the Nile hide in shame.Interestingly, Shikamaru doesn't much bother. Since leaving her "teen" months In Game World, she has all but forgotten about mos the events that incurred within. As a reasonable strong shinobi, she is an asset to her village (if once considered for ANBU, she summarily refused, on account of liking to be able to not do things, and having reserved thoughts on any mission where Kyuubi might get himself into mischief if/when following her) was more than content on that front.She arrivedback in Konoha with her apartment intact, so to speak. At least when she walks out in the morning. It's when she comes back that she realizes... And isn't quite so overjoyed.She is still mildly homophobic (hard to lose old habits). Not that she bothers to say anything about it, but she won't be volunteering to watch anything outside of... G.First Post Example:Okay. I understand that life is a bitch. According to Kyuubi, everyone is. What I do not understand is why I'm back here. I was reasonably good. I did missions without complaining all that much. I stopped being quite so antagonizingly chauvinistic. I made my parents happy. I taught three snot-nosed brats how to not die, and watched one fail anyway.So. I repeat.Why I am here? Again?...The answer is far too troublesome to bother existing. New plan. Find the next way back.And figure out if this place is still run by Sound. *sighs* Argh, so... redundant.Small Drabble (opional): I think her history is one by now. XD I can link you to the marriage story? Or proposal one. All here!Comments/Questions: HI. I talked with Em on Kyuubi information! ♥ Tell me what you need clarified.
HELL YES ACCEPTED.
YouName: Mun PaiAge: 18LiveJournal: elleestlimonadeCharacter You're applying forRequested Character: Sabaku no GaaraIs the Requested Character IC, DIC or OOC?: OOC. If OOC, What Changes Are You Making?: ‘Gaara is the eldest of three children. When he was born, the beast Shukaku was sealed within him. Because of this, his mother died, leaving him with nothing but a bloodline jutsu that enabled him to control sand. His father never told him of this, though, so Gaara believes that the woman who bore his younger brother and sister is his mother as well. When he was three, his sister Temari was born. A year and a half later, the final of the three, Kankurou, joined them. Right from the start, Gaara took it to be his responsibility to protect his siblings. He cared deeply for them and blamed himself if something happened to them. As a jinchuuriki, he knew that his own powers could hurt Temari and Kankurou also, so he did his best to surpress it.Even though he was still quite young, at the age of six, he made the decision that he wanted to become a medical ninja. He became very close to a family friend, Yashamaru (who was actually Gaara’s birth mother’s brother), who was one of the more prominent medical ninjas in the village. Yashamaru agreed to start teaching him the basics as soon as Gaara entered the ninja academy. But the day Gaara was supposed to begin his training with Yashamaru, something terrible happened. An attack on Suna from a rival village resulted in the death of Yashamaru. Gaara had been hiding, as he had been instructed to, but he had witnessed Yashamaru’s death. He knew he could have stopped it if he had tapped into Shukaku’s power. For the first time in his life, Gaara lost control. He used Shukaku’s power to eliminate the remaining shinobi from the other village but also ended up harming a number of Sand shinobi as well. When he realized what he had done, he told himself it would never happen again. He only wanted to use his abilities to help people, not harm them. One of the elders of the village, Chiyo, offered to train Gaara as a medical ninja. She had been the one to implant Shukaku in him and took his emotional breakdown has her responsibility. With her help, Gaara regained his sense of normalcy and began pursuing his dream. Now, at the age of seventeen, he has gained the respect of the people of the Suna, as the eldest son of the Kazekage and as a highly skilled medical ninja. His siblings do not know of his inner battle with Shukaku or of the fact that he cannot sleep in order to protect them and others from himself. First Post Example: People tell me I worry too much. I’m thinking that this time there’s a good reason behind it, though. Something strange is going on. People I thought I knew are acting very…strange now, to say the least. I’ve been called “Kazekage” a number of times and do not understand why. My father is the Kazekage, not me. I have tried a number of times to confront people about it but no one will answer my questions. Small Drabble (opional): Er…No thank you? D: Comments/Questions: Um…I hope you like my Gaara! :D <3
We're VERY sorry to finally get back to you after so long. If you're still interested in our little community that's making a restart now, you're more than welcome to join us. But I hope you are intersted! Your Gaara would be an intersted addition *_*
YouName: JyariAge: 15AIM: Old Motel BedLiveJournal: chronophobeCharacter You're applying forRequested Character: SakonIs the Requested Character IC, DIC or OOC?: OOCIf OOC, What Changes Are You Making?: Mm. There are a lot of changes, really, but I try to feel they are justified. >.<;' I'm sorry, bear with me and hopefully you will understand? First and foremost, in the manga, if you'd recall, Sakon is physically attatched to Ukon, his older brother. I think this would mean he's very close to his brother, perhaps even incestuously. I tend to lean towards this thought, honestly. If this is a problem you can stop reading now, because I'd end up doing that and I don't want to offend anyone. Otherwise, I thank you for accepting this! Being so close to his brother, Sakon only ever developed certain skills while many were left out as Ukon did those things, i.e Cooking, cleaning, dealing with people, etc. Not having expierenced these things, Sakon grew up horribly... autistic? I suppose that would be the word. When he was younger, Sakon was perfectly normal for the most part, but after being torn away from his brother (after they were caught kissing) and punished for what he did, Sakon mostly shut-down, detaching himself from things. Thus he is now considered autistic. He constantly refers to himself in third person, only ever using "I" when saying "I love you" to his brother; it's very special and personal, thus he saves it. Other quirks... -strokes chin- Sakon doesn't understand social cues. At all. He understands, vaugly, that what he has with his brother is "not normal" and usually looked down upon, but doesn't understand why this is. He is self-destructive. OH. Yes- I forgot. He's self-destructive, badly. When he was younger, he attempted to saw off his own left hand. This is when he was diagnosed as Austistic, though no one ever did anything about it. (Shame, perchance.) He has a certain fasination with chewing the webbing of his left hand raw, intent to see what "his hand is made of". Doctors tried to explain this to him, but Sakon is stubborn and never listens.True to his character, Sakon is rude and generally more bark than bite; in other words he likes to curse at you. A lot.
First Post Example: ((Um. I don't know entirely what to put here. So does this work? D: -flaildie- ))Mornings were never kind in general; espeically to gray-haired teenagers. Especially if that gray-haired teenager had engaged in activities not-school-approrpiate the night before. But said gray-haired teenager had not been engaged in activies not-school-approrpiate. That didn't mean the mornings were nice.Sakon woke with a start, a pleasent sweat having worked it's way down his back and onto the bed sheets. Calling out for his brother, ("Nii-saama..!") Sakon supressed the images that had haunted him only moments ago, opting instead to fixate his gaze to the doorway where (hopefully) his beloved brother would be making an appearence. Though Sakon was by this time certainly an adult and old enough to ignore nightmares, he still found himself crying out for his brother after another episode of death, lonliness, piss in his eyes (damn that Leaf dog, he'd have his revenge if it were the last thing he did) and other night terrors. Time seemed to have slowed down for the boy, who watched the clock with one eye, the other resting closed; it was a look that he had been fond of since he was small, and tended to make people uncomfortable. After waiting what could have been a few hours, (though in all truth was a tiring five minutes) Sakon got up unsteadily out of bed, padding over to the door and peaking out. Normally Ukon and Sakon slept in the same bed, but it made sense Ukon could have been up already, doing something; but it didn't make sense is that Nii-sama had not jumped up, ready to protect his little brother from the horrors of the night. "..Nii-sama?" The words, (word?) flittered through the small apartment absently, nothing that was alive (or perchance inanimate, it seemed) taking a notice of them. There was a dim light on, (from the kitchen as the grey-haired one would learn later) idly illuminating his path. After mustering the courage to look past the couch, Sakon found his older sibling curled on the floor, clutching a book as if his life depended on it. It seemed Ukon had fallen asleep studying. The sight made Sakon giddy. He clapped his hands, not loud enough to wake his brother, and made his way over to his brother, choosing to sit with his back to the couch and watch him sleep. It was a truly beautiful sight to Sakon. "...Eh? Ototou...?" Ukon blinked fuzzily, lifting his head. "..Ototou, what are you doing out here- what am I doing here?" The older twin managed to sit up, shaking away the sleep that so desperatly clung to him."Nii-sama..!" Face lighting up, Sakon pulled onto his knees, immediatly wrapping his arms around the sleepy teenager's neck happily. "..Nii-sama, Sakon had a bad dream.."Small Drabble (opional):Comments/Questions: Uhm, not really? ^-^;'I hope this wasn't too short/awful? /._.\
