It was three months later.
The day was warm and sunny and Rarity lounged in her Boutique. She was bored; there looked to be no business today and she wondered if she shouldn't close up early. A slow day like this really made you miss the past: sometimes it seemed as though something strange or exciting happened every other day. Now things were so humdrum she was practically dozing. It wasn't as though she was complaining, goodness no, but over the last couple of weeks it just seemed as though something were missing. Some element that she couldn't put her hoof on, a certain je ne sais quoi. Maybe it was just the cozy sunlight making her mind drift.
News had come that Summersday had finally found himself a wife-to-be. Given the events of my visit, I can only hope he played it fair instead of pick-and-choose, she thought to herself. Over the quarter-year her hatred of him had diminished, but he still held a dark place in her mind; one that may never be clea

...and then we went to the Grand Galloping Gala. Yes, that Gala. The one nopony is likely to ever forget about. Dressed in our finest - compliments of myself, of course - we had all come with the highest of expectations. Applejack was there for purely mercenary reasons: she was hoping to sell her family goods to passers-by.
Personally, I felt it was a tad distasteful; this was the Gala, the high point of the year for all of Equestria even for those ponies who don't get in, not some sort of... county fair for hawking goods. She even had a stall for Celestia's sake. Admittedly, her family did need the money to keep Sweet Apple Acres running, so I kept my thoughts to myself.
Fluttershy - the demure little thing - came simply to see the creatures in Celestia's royal garden. She gets along so well with animals as a whole, and many in the garden are said to be completely unique to all of Equestria. Myself, I have trouble enough with Opalescence, an

..I'm going to have quite a bit of work on my hooves with this new book!" said Twilight Sparkle, as I ran to catch up with her.
"I'm trying my best, Twilight; I can't move as fast as you with theses dinky little legs and pulling this big book," I replied, pulling a red wagon behind me, the axles squeaking under the weight of the huge book within. Is it my fault dragons grow slowly? I grumbled to myself as I finally caught up with her. One of these days I'm gonna finally start growing up, hopefully leg first. I sure hope it's soon; I'm tired of not being able to keep up with the others.
Twilight smiled back at me. "I'm sorry, Spike, but I've been waiting ages for this..."
"...and you wanna get it back to the library so you can read and catalog it," I finished. "I know, I know. I dunno why you couldn't just have it delivered; the post office is pretty far away from the library and this thing isn't exactly light.."

The one thing that binds us all.
The person who all heed his call.
The one who takes loved ones away.
The person who leaves us till our last day.
The one things that cannot be out run.
The person who takes even those who just begun.
Even Angels on earth cannot hide,
For Death cares not for love or pride.
Friend and foe,
Through joy and woe.
All will listen to Death's song,
And all will be gone after long.
He cares not for age,
Be they new born baby, or wise old sage.
He cares not for others or how they feel,
Be they free from taint, or about to keel,
He cares not for the person's life,
Be they full of joy, or full of strife.
Death takes those hated and loved.
Death takes those who want to be forgotten,
and those who want to be remembered.
He takes demons and Angels alike, But most of all.
He took my angel and he took Your Angel.

Chapter 1: The forgotten memories!
Location: Tobi/Madara's Hideout
Event: Final days of the Fourth Shinobi World War
It was late in the evening. The sun was just hours away from setting, and the ground was wet from a storm that had just passed.
A young female ninja was running through the corridors of a large fortress as she desperately tried to find an exit.
She wore the green flak jacket of the Konoha Leaf Ninja. Under it she wore a black, long-sleeved shirt and dark-blue pants.
Her blue hair flowed in the air behind her as she ran faster and faster as a shadowy figure was in pursuit of her. No matter where she ran to, that shadowy figure followed.
Finally, she was able to find a way outside. She stopped for a few seconds to get her bearings as she gazed at the sight in front of her. Off in the distance was an enormous watch-tower

He's in bed. It's late... or it's early. He doesn't even know really. He's conscious and still, he's not. His body is sleeping, heavy as a rock, drawn into the mattress. His mind is somewhere between deep sleep and fully awake. He's drifting back and forth, like he's in a twilight zone. The movement of the bus is lulling him, making him unable to wake up and he knows he probably should. He can hear voices so everybody's up and about already... or are they going to sleep soon? He doesn't know. His eyes are glued shut it seems and he can't force them open no matter how hard he tries.
All of a sudden, the curtain to his bunk is slowly pulled to the side a little, he hears... or did he dream that. He wonders who's by his side because he can sense them close as he hears voices far away in the background.
"Hey." someone whispers close to his ear and Tommy feels his mouth draw out into a big smile. He recognizes the voice. It's very familiar but he can't place it.

Chapter 47: Sage Mode Activated! Hold the Line!
Draiko and the Leaf Ninjas watched in shock as Mai glared at them from across the vast field of grass. It was now nighttime as the big, bright, full moon shun down upon them as a thin layer of clouds, caused by Mai, began to pass in front of it.
Hinata seemed to be the most shocked one of the group as she couldn’t understand one thing. “I don’t get it…” she said.
“What do you mean?” asked Sakura.
“I made a direct hit on her with my Twin Lion Fists. How is she still able to use her chakra?”
That’s when Draiko stepped in. “It’s because Mai’s using more than just her own chakra. She’s using a combination of her own chakra and Black Magic.”
“Black Magic?” repeated the group of Leaf Ninja as they then turned their attention to Draiko.
“Yes, Mai’s what some would call a Witch Shinobi

Japan, Italy and Germany were sitting in Japan's living room discussing their plans for combat. A sudden knock came to Japan's window. The trio turned their heads to see China, staring creepily at the trio.
"Who the hell is that?" said Germany.
"I don't know." replied Italy with a small 've'.
"He looks like Chewbacca on drugs." Germany said while turning his head away.
"Ick. He looks like a geisha that was in a hit and run." said Japan with disgust.
"Ew." said Italy.
-A few days later-
"Germany, why is he always following us around? I'm scared~." Italy said.
"I don't know. But he's following us everywhere."
"Hai, I've seen him following us after we left the World Meeting." said Japan.
"I swear I saw him while eating Pasta, he told me 'Shinatty chan, Aru.' It's creepy."
A flashback showed Italy sitting at the table eating a bowl of Pasta. "Ve, pasta~." Italy

Survival The very definition of the word means, "The state or fact of continuing to live or exist, typically in spite of an accident, ordeal, or difficult circumstances." My clan held true to that very definition. We embraced it so much; it might as well be embedded on our bodies when we're born. Kinda like a birthmark. My clan the infamous Uzumaki Clan
We started out like any ordinary ninja clan would small and weak. But, over time we began to expand and learned we were gifted with skills of fuijutsus, or better known as "sealing jutsus". It wasn't long before many other clans took notice of our skills and asked for our assistance. We

Chapter 2: Heir to the throne!
Location: Inside Draiko's mind.
Event: 5 minutes after Madara's death.
The room was dark and had a humid smell in the air.
"Draiko, wake up."
He could hear a voice off in the distance.
Someone was calling his name, but who.
"Whaaaat!?" shouted Draiko as he suddenly lifted himself halfway from the damp, wet floor.
He suddenly was in shock as he took a look at his surroundings.
'Where the hell am I?' he thought to himself.
Draiko finally finished picking himself up off the floor as he continued looking around the place where he was. For some weird reason the floor was all wet and a strange, blue, ambient light lit up the whole place.
"What? Who's there? Show yourself!" demanded Draiko as he cautiously looked around the room he was in. It

Chapter 7: Disciplinary action is required!
It was now mid-day as Naruto Uzumaki awoke from his slumber. He stretched out his arms and gave a big yawn as he emerged from his bed. He then began to rub his eyes as he was trying to figure out what time it was, but the bright sun glowing in his face showed him it was well past morning.
"Dang, it seems I've slept-in again. I really gotta stop doing that. Thank goodness I don't have any missions for today." Naruto hopped out of his bed as he went to change clothes. Once that was done, he went into his apartment's kitchen to get his belated breakfast started.
"Okay, let's see what we have to eat today?" he said as he opened up his pantry and refrigerator. Unfortunately, there wasn't much in both of them to satisf

Chapter 4: Sleepless Nights
Location: Hidden Leaf Village
Event: 10 minutes after Draiko's group set up camp.
It was late in the evening in the Hidden Leaf Village. Naruto and his friends were having a big celebration in the Yakiniku Q restaurant. They were celebrating the one year anniversary of the end of the Fourth Shinobi World War, and of Naruto's victory over Madara.
"Cheers!" they all said as they raised their glasses in honor of Naruto.
"Aw, thanks guys." Naruto blushed. "This really means a lot, but you all didn't have to do all this for me."
"Are you kidding?" Kiba said. "If it weren't for you, we all would be under Madara's crazy moon-Sharingan-control-thing!"
"It was nothing really." laughed Naruto.

Chapter 31: Quest for the Wind Scroll Begins!
The gusty winds of sand blew through the air, as they slapped across Naruto and the others' faces. It had taken another day, but the team had finally made it to the Land of Wind, where their next target was the Wind Scroll.
Although they have been in this area before, never had they experienced such an intense sand storm. They could feel the small stings of sand rushing past their exposed skin as they did their best to keep the rest of sand away from their face.
"Holy crap!" exclaimed Naruto. "I can't believe how strong the wind is out here."
"It's probably because we're nearing our destination." Sakura replied.
"Tell me again why we're still going after these scrolls by ourselves?!"
"Oh, no! We're not having this argument again, Naruto!"
"What, I'm just saying; it would've been a whole lot easier if we had just called for backup!"

Chapter 30: Arrival of the Daredevil Ninja!
Draiko continued to sit calmly as he watched the Leaf Ninja huddle together and think of a way to get the Fire Scroll out of the volcano.
Although he couldn't hear what they were saying, he could tell that they were quickly formulating a plan together.
"Okay guys," said Sakura in the huddle. "I've already figured a way how we can get this scroll. Since it's guarded only by that huge fire wall, we'll have to fly our way over it and simply descend down into the volcano and grab the scroll."
Kiba seemed unsure by this plan. "Are you sure that will work?" he asked.
"Of course it will. I've already seen how high that fire wall can go. Sai will simply create a giant bird so he and Naruto can fly down into the volcano and retrieve the scroll."
"Wait, why does Naruto get to go with Sai into the volcano?" Kiba asked.
"Because, Hinata said that the scroll is surrounded by that same barrier bac

Chapter 32: Hinata's Plan! Get the Water Scroll!
Crickets chirped in the calm night as a panicked Naruto began running through the thick dark forest as he was being pursued by an unknown assailant.
The look on his face showed just how scared he was of this person if they ever caught him, but no matter what, he wasn't going to let that happen.
He continued to run and leap through the trees of the forest, using the half moon as his only light to help him see where he was going.
As it seemed that he had lost the assailant, Naruto took this time to hide behind a large tree as he tried to catch his breath. But as he sat there breathing hard, the sound of a twig snapping above him quickly made him stop and look up as the assailant fell from the top of the tree and pounced on Naruto.
Naruto let out a loud, "NNNOOOOOOOO!!!!!" before the assailant revealed themselves to be Sakura trying her best to restrain Naruto.

Chapter 29: Draiko's Deal!
"Wake up!" yelled Sakura as she kicked Naruto and the other guys, waking them up from their sleep.
It was early morning; one day after their escape from the cave. The team was now on their way towards the next scroll's location. The Fire Scroll, which was located inside a volcano on the other side of the Land of Fire.
Sakura and Hinata were already up and packing their things, while the guys grumbled and groaned as they tried to get up.
"C'mon you guys. We have to get going so we can beat Draiko to the next scroll." said Sakura.
"I still don't see why we should even bother getting these things if Draiko's just gonna take it and bring it to Tsunade in the first place." said Kiba as he rubbed his eyes and got up.
It only took them a couple of more minutes to get things going before they continued their way towards the Fire Scroll.
However, since it took most of yesterday to make it through the Land of

'It's been over a year since that day of victory. The day I became free of Madara's control, and although it was tough to do, I still kept my promise to Nagato. Over the past year I have successfully wandered this world and found seven other Uzumaki members!'
Draiko was leaping from tree to tree as seven other figures followed behind and beside him. Draiko's appearance had changed over the past year as he now wore customized clothing to show that he was part of the Uzumaki Clan. His shirt shoulders, his headband, the back of his breastplate and battle skirt, all had the Uzumaki emblem on them. He even started to wear thick black goggles to hide his eyes.

Chapter 37: Naruto’s Counter Attack! Time to Regroup!
As the flurries of snow and ice settled to the ground, Ayane opened her eyes and saw that she hadn’t missed her targets. Both Naruto and Draiko were hit by her ice attack and were frozen stiff, with Naruto in an attacking position.
However, both of their faces showed how cold the ice really was. Even Naruto couldn’t bear the freezing temperature.
Both Naruto and Draiko were shivering and chattering their teeth as they stayed in their frozen poses.
“G-G-G-G-Good work Ayane!” Draiko said with a smile.
Ayane quickly approached the two as she began apologizing to Draiko “Oh, Draiko! I’m so sorry, but you told me to do it!”
“It’s ok-k-k-k-kay, my dear. You d-d-d-d-did an exc-c-c-c-c-cellent job. I’m p-p-p-p-p-proud of you.”
Ayane blushed at Draiko’s compliment. “Aw, thank you sweety.”

Today is the day of the World Conference. I'm sitting where I always sit, next to Ivan, and Francis. Francis is busy talking to Arthur who keeps shooting weird little, hate filled glances at me. This is normal. I sigh and people look around as though a ghost had made that noise. Once again, this is completely normal.
Suddenly a large warm hand is on my thigh, I look to my side alarmed and see Ivan smiling down at me with that creepy purple aura around him. He slowly slides his hand higher and higher. I try desperately to push him away until I hear that "kolkolkol". Immediately I stop trying to push him away, knowing better then to let him maim me for trying to escape.
I can feel my eyes going dull, my body becoming limp. The feeling of lifelessness consuming me. I don't hear Alfred, talking away. I don't see Francis sip his wine like usual, and of course, I don't see Gilbert's eyes filling with pure fury.

Chapter 27: Race to the Finish! Who Will Get the Scroll First?
The team of Leaf Ninjas continued their way leaping through the vast forest, tree to tree, as they made their way to the first scroll's location.
"How much further?" asked Naruto to Sakura.
Sakura then glanced at the map to check their distance from their destination. "It shouldn't be much longer. Just a few more miles before we get there."
As they continued their way through the forest, Hinata suddenly looked behind her as if she saw something following them. But as she scanned the area behind her, there was nothing to be seen but the trees they had just passed.
"Hey, Hinata." asked Kiba. "What is it? You see something?"
Hinata had a very unsure-look on her face but decided to let it go. "No, it's nothing. Probably just a bird or something." she said as she and the others kept moving.

Chapter 21: Draiko vs. Naruto Pt. 2
Both Naruto and Draiko rushed at each other with full speed before clashing into a fury of punches and kicks. Most of the attacks were just parried by the other as they both tried their best to get a shot in, but so far neither of them were giving in.
However, it wasn't long before the two ended up jumping back to get some space from the other. Draiko stared down at Naruto, who in turn formed his hands into the Shadow Clone hand-sign.
Draiko saw this and quickly grabbed for his sword, but by the time Naruto had already started his attack.
"Shadow Clone Jutsu!" yelled Naruto as a huge cloud of smoke engulfed his body before settling down and revealing twenty Naruto Clones ready to fight.
By now Draiko had already drawn his sword and also prepared for the Clones' attack.
"Tear him apart!" yelled Naruto as the clones rushed at Draiko at all angles.
But Draiko was more than prepared for this. He
