Unusually high ratio of B and C-rank to D-rank for her time spent at her respective military rank suggests frequent military action early in her career. (Consistent with her age: She would have become a genin during the Third War) The Third War was also ongoing when she became a chuunin, perhaps she earned a battlefield promotion or, similarly, was honored for acting above and beyond/displaying chuunin qualities in a combat situation?
Relatively high number of successful S and A-rank for a fresh jounin suggests exceptional skill and dedication.

A basic skill for a ninja is to conceal your presence and hide.
Kakashi stood in the clearing, taking note of his genin's positions. Everyone seemed to have hidden themselves well. Certainly, he doubted anyone of their respective levels less than a tracking specialist would notice them. Sakura under that bush, Sasuke up in that tree, Naruto... standing... right... in front of me. With his arms crossed and a very strange smile on his face. His stance suggested either he was completely confident about his chances, or that he simply wasn't going to try anything yet.
Eh... Shouldn't you be hiding like the other two?
Nah. I figure that if you're really a jounin, you'll know where we are no matter what. Besides, I'm still waiting on something before I can make my move.
Kakashi blinked. Hell, it was his time to waste. If that's what he wanted to do, then okay. Well, if that's the case, I hope you don't mind if I read while we wait? He

For one class at the Konoha Ninja Academy, it was a very special day today.
It was today that would decide whether or not they would join the world of shinobi, and in the village's eyes, become adults. Today would decide if they were capable to become genin.
Today was their graduation test.
Naruto's familiar grin was in place as he fixed his goggles for what would be the last time. Today he would pass, though by unorthodox means, and more, he would 'learn' the technique that would eventually define his entire repertoire of ninjutsu. Of course, he already knew Kage Bunshin, but he was a little bit rusty after not using it for two years. Regardless, he knew the technique already, it was just a matter of making sure this body could use it, which meant he could spend a little more time on the rest of the scroll. There had to be one or two techniques in there that he could learn.
All of this, of course, depended on the final exam being the Bunshin no jutsu.
WhooTimeTravel Ch.8That damn cat was safely in Sakura's arms, but Naruto still kept an eye on it. The damn thing seemed to enjoy scratching up his face. But, hey, he'd leave it alone, and it'd leave him alone, right? Sasuke interrupted his barely feline-tolerant thought process.WhooTimeTravel Ch.84 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"How did you lure that cat into the alley for Sakura to catch it?" Sakura coughed and glared at Naruto. She knew what he'd done, but she wasn't talking about it, not even to Sasuke. Naruto grinned and shifted a few steps away from Sakura.
"Short story: I had a kage bunshin henge into a cat."
Sasuke was nonplussed. He had no idea why such a thing would work. "...Why would that-"
"A lady cat."
It wasn't often that Naruto, or anyone, really, got to see Sasuke gape. "What."
"You heard me."
Indeed Sasuke did. "Why?" However, it didn't make the answer any less surreal, in his mind.
"It worked, didn't it?"
"I mean, why did you turn into a lady cat? How or why do you even care what a cat finds sexy?" An evil grin split

A year and a bit had passed, and they were meeting again. It happened often enough that the ANBU could report to the Hokage that Naruto had made friends. Naruto knew that the Sandaime would be pleased to hear that, and he had no real reason to contradict him. After all, they really were his friends.
So, how's everyone doing with their training? They'd learned to speak in semi-code now. The ANBU would have eventually wised up to the genjutsu sooner or later when they realised it happened every time they met. Chouji continued to eat whenever thay saw him, though. Unsurprising, really, considering how many Akimichi hijutsu were dependent on body weight. Shikamaru answered for him.
Well, Chouji's told me that he's doing well with his taijutsu. I'd have to agree, based on last week's performance against Kiba. The much faster Inuzuka had narrowly avoided a broken leg from one of Chouji's strikes. The Akimichi family style, while slow, consi

Naruto's head was still reeling. According to Shikamaru's best guess, this was really happening. He, Hinata, Naruto, and probably Gaara and Temari had somehow been transplanted into their fifteen-years-younger bodies.
Although, the way Shikamaru explained it, that was just how it seemed to them because they had got the memories. Their spirits or souls or what-have-you hadn't really jumped back in time fifteen years, that was impossible. They were still them, but they now had future knowledge, which was a very dangerous thing.
Of course, he didn't mention that his explanation was just as impossible, but it was more favorable than the alternative. They would have had to be dead for their spirits to depart from their bodies.

How? And more to the point, if that is the case, why don't we remember remembering? Shikamaru nodded.

Hinata awoke, stretching out and revelling in the warmth of her bed. Instinctively, her hand reached across the bedding...
To find no one else. Her mood was shattered as waking up brought with it the biting grasp of reality. Naruto wasn't here, nor would he be, for quite some time.
She hated this. She had been happy with Naruto. He had finally realised how she felt, and he had returned those feelings eagerly. It wasn't quite easy, though. The only real breakthrough had come on an extended investigation mission with him. One night, she found him speaking aloud to the full moon, as though it was the only figure that wouldn't judge him any differently. She had spoken with him, on that rooftop, and when he asked her of she knew what day it was, she had answered, without hesitation, that it was his birthday. He had smiled at that. Apparently she was the first person to remember his birthday before remembering the Yondaime's death.

At the mention of lunch, the genin quickly began to file out of the room for their food. Some teams left as a group, while others decided to spend their last day at the Academy with friends who would be continuing in different groups.
Team Seven, however, split up entirely. Sasuke wanted to eat alone, and couldn't care less about his teammates. Sakura wanted to avoid Naruto and have lunch with Sasuke, using the rather hypocritical excuse of improving team dynamics. Naruto needed to change this situation right now. He intended to do so by getting the three of them to eat lunch together.
...It would be a start, at least.
Oi, Sasuke-teme! Several of the girls tensed at Sasuke being addressed in such a manner, but ultimately did nothing but seethe. In spite of himself, Sasuke paused.
What do you want?
If we're on the same team, how about we eat lunch as a team? I'm sure Sakura'll be okay with it.
The 'prodigy' simply brushed him off
WhooTimeTravel Ch.10Haku inhaled deeply on the way to collect Zabuza's herbs. The night's mist was still present, and carried a delicate, unmistakable 'forest-y' scent. A light chill was lingering in the air, even as the weak morning sun tried to penetrate the mist to fill the forest. This was... pleasant. Peaceful. Calm. Such things were not shared with Zabuza, as he was unlikely to care, but Haku enjoyed (relatively) restful periods like these, times when they remained in one place long enough to smell the proverbial roses, whether by choice or necessity. Even if Zabuza's initial reaction to such situations tended to be somewhat impatient. Thoughts of how Zabuza's restlessness would manifest were he healthier brought a small smile as Haku came to the clearing where the necessary herbs were and stopped short.WhooTimeTravel Ch.102 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

"It's true... He died."
Kakashi looked up from Zabuza's corpse, having just confirmed the nukenin's death. There was no pulse, at least none that he could find, and the senbon in his neck had not struck any near-death points that he knew of. He examined the newcomer as casually as he could. They were wearing what appeared to be a thick, dull orange robe worn loosely under some kind of gi. It had multiple places to hide weapons or could be used to obfuscate movement without hindering it. That wasn't what drew Kakashi's greatest concern. It was the smooth, wave-patterned mask bearing the symbol of Kirigakure over the forehead that did that.
The stranger bowed slightly. "You have my utmost thanks. I have been looking for an opportunity to kill him."
"If I recall correctly, that mask identifies you as one of Kirigakure's oi-nin."
They straightened up quickly. "As expected... You are quite well-informed." From the voice pitch, height and build, they weren't that much older than

He had no father when he was young. In fact, he doesn't even know what parents are...

WhooTimeTravel 10.5 (Interlude)Hinata's mind was only half on the spar with her instructor that evening. She was worried about Naruto. True, he had come out of that mission all right last time, but a jounin was a jounin, and combat situations were inherently chaotic. She couldn't trust to chance that he would come out alive this time again, not even with his unbelievable luck. She smiled internally as she blocked a twisting strike to her neck. Naruto had luck, yes, but he was intelligent enough not to rely solely on it and was also sufficently... unorthodox, that he would be able to improvise his way out, for both himself and his team, if anything went wrong.WhooTimeTravel 10.5 (Interlude)2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Chapter 2: Kakashi's report
Kakashi stopped on a roof and pulled out his book to think. That woman was definitely up to something. She wasn't really worried about Iruka... was she? But, that would probably mean she was worried about him. He'd been so careful, though. He put up with Gai's challenges; okay, so they were generally entertaining, if just to see what the man would do if he lost. Besides, Kakashi let him win the ones he'd given himself ridiculous 'if I fails' to. I mean, some of the things the man came up with just weren't possible or practical. It didn't require him to go out of his way, and it was amusing to see how much he could annoy the man by 'ignoring' him. Kakashi let Genma and Raidou drag him out for sake. So it didn't hurt that Genma had a good sense of humor and thus, Kakashi did
One DayHinata? Narutos voice echoed in Hinatas head. ttebayo! She rolled over in her state of mind, hanging somewhere between sleep and consciousness. It wasnt quite REM, but a similar state of mind. She squeezed her eyes tightly in on themselves as a small drop of liquid excreted from the left eye, then one from the right. She opened them as the hanging consciousness lifted and she was fully awake, although exhausted. She sat up and placed her face in her hands, a few more tears forcing their way out of her stinging eyes. She smacked her forehead once, then twice and then slipped back to her back, staring at the open sky.One Day6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
