To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand SLO updates. The development is nonexistent, and without a solid grasp of theoretical programming most of the updates will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Vreg's hedonistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Half Life 3, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these updates, to realise that they're not just nonexistent- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike the development rate truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Vreg's existential catchphrase "Soon™," which itself is a cryptic reference to Redcliffe N. Salaman epic The History and Social Influence of the Potato. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Nova's genius moderation skill unfolds itself on their computer screens. What fools.. how I pity them.  :D

And yes, by the way, i DO have a 1.0.9.5 Christmas Patch tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the Kage Donators' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid  8)

General Discussion / The Will to Escape - (Unfinished)
« on: October 23, 2017, 16:54:04 »
Hello everyone. Sorry about the delay, I were uncertain on whether I should post this or not. Well, but I said I would, so… As I promised, here is the TWtE series. As I said in the last episode of Diaries of Fear, it is unfinished. If you do not know what I am talking about please check the message in the ending of the Episode 18, Arc 3. Everything bellow this message (except the ‘spoiler list’ in the end) was already written some time ago.



What is this? A short project, shorter than ‘Diaries of Fear’ by comparison, which happens in the same universe of ‘Diaries of Fear’, the DoF Universe (or whatever way you want to call this reality). A story about the first villain that a certain SLO character met.

Think in this as an expansion pack. Ok that is a bad analogy, but you got the idea. If you liked the main series, maybe you will like this one as well.

The Will to Escape – Arc 1

Episode 1 – A Place to Hide from Sorrow

Date of log: 12 years before first meeting Osoreito. Hokorigakure (dust)

Nigeru and her sister were walking in the desert during nighttime, heading to an unfinished hideout. It was incredibly cold, as usual. Both of them had lost their parents some time ago and were looking for a place to hide from danger. Nigeru did not knew well the reason that leaded her parents to end killed, since she was a little kid.

As they travelled to an abandoned place that her sister found in the past, Nigeru could not avoid perceiving the discomfort imposed by the cold place. She turned to her sister and started to complain:

_Are we close? It is cold here.

_Yes, if I remember right.

_Are we close? It is…

_Yes, if I remember right.

_Are we c…

_Yes, if I remember right.

_Are…

_Silence.

They eventually approached the place. A hideout in the middle of the desert, a bunch of wooden structures hidden in a cave. The place was empty of humans for a long time, spiders made it to the place, leaving webs all over the entrance. Only the fittest creatures can survive the desert for long.

They made sure the place was empty, examining the rooms and corridors. Nigeru’s sister brought supplies like food and water to stay in the place during some time. They were afraid that the same persons that killed their parents could want to kill them as well, even though they have nothing to do with their parents’ obscure dealings. Her sister was older and smarter, deciding to flee in despair with Nigeru as soon as she found dead corpses of the family in their house.

They had nothing to start a fire with, so the alternative way to warm them during the night was using old fabric from the place. Her sister started to clean the fabric from the dust, then wrapping Nigeru in it.

_Where is dad and mom? I want to go back home.

_We cannot go back. Dad and mom are not here right now.

_But this place is weird. I want to go.

_I am here with you, nothing ‘weird’ will harm you.

_I cannot sleep.

_I know. I will tell a story then, but you better not get used, this will not happen every night.

Her sister started to tell stories from when Nigeru had not born yet and the family traveled, visiting nearby villages. She talked about Morigakure and the trees that can reach the sky, deep in an endless forest. Nigeru yawned, looking motionless at her sister. She then talked about crazy groups in Morigakure and their obsession about protecting trees, usually charging a fine for anyone who damage a tree.

Some times Nigeru laughed, other times she silenced, hearing attentively the stories. She fell asleep, to her sister felicity. At first, Nigeru’s sister had trouble to sleep due to paranoia and stress, but eventually fell unconscious like a rock. During the morning of the next day, Nigeru woke up alone, looking around the room for her sister.

Nigeru walked, stepping in the old wood bellow her feet. She was starting to get worried about her sister when she decided to look in the entrance. Her sister was there sitting with crossed legs and looking the horizon from inside the cave. After noticing Nigeru’s presence, she got up and said:

_How about it? I got rid of the spider webs. The entrance is more welcoming now.

_Why do not we go home now? I want to go now.

_No chance. That place is dangerous now. You will stay here and do as I say.

_You are not my mom, stop telling me what to do.

_Your parents are not around, I am older than you are and I am the responsible here.

Her stubbornness was evident, as she did not properly understood the circumstances in which she was stuck. Taking care of Nigeru was always a headache, even for her parents, but eventually her sister had to make her aware of the situation.

During the following years, both of them lived in the hideout. Eventually, they needed to resupply food and water. The place became a home once they cleaned it and spent some days there. Nigeru’s sister became the responsible for what remained of the family and struggled to sustain both of them, needing a source of money urgently.



Episode 2 – Divine

Date of log: 9 years before first meeting Osoreito. Hokorigakure (dust).

During three years, Nigeru’s sister worked doing shinobi tasks, eventually finding in the world of crime an opportunity to make easy money. She would go any length to give her sister a comfortable life, even walking an illegal path. She usually left Nigeru alone for hours and days, doing dangerous missions skillfully.

Nigeru was playing alone, as she usually does since there is no company. Her sister came back, to her surprise, hugging her immediately. She brought a journal from Hokorigakure to Nigeru, as she usually brings books or magazines for her entertainment. That was the first time Nigeru read the ‘Dusty Journal’.

The title says “Man with Mental Disorder Sets Home in Flames”, and bellow, “The man was supposedly trying to put milk in a bowl with cereal when he brutally pierced his hand with a knife. It is uncertain how the fire started, but the man jumped from the second floor and the officials found him fatally burned, with a knife pierced in his right hand and glue in his left leg. Read more in page 6”.

_Whoa, putting milk in a bowl is harder than I thought – commented Nigeru.

_We are going to hang out around today. Leaving you alone here all day is something that always let me worried.

_Sure.

They went through the desert. Nigeru believed they would just hang out a little bit and maybe visit the village. After hours traveling bellow the hot sun, Nigeru said with a tired face:

_This is a travel for business, is not it?

_Ah, you are smart like your brilliant sister.

_The village was to the other direction. We have been traveling for hours to some other place.

_We already passed by some buildings in the middle of nowhere. The location is nearby. My meeting will not take long, I swear.

As they approached a part of the desert, a masked man appeared. He were wearing green clothes and the mask had two horns. The man said:

_Is this girl your sister, Hashita? She is wearing green clothes, so it is clear that she have good taste.

_I am taking my sister around to show the place. Here Nigeru, this is my friend Green Devil. He offered me great jobs these last days.

_Hello kid – said him while rubbing his hand in Nigeru’s hair.

_Hey, stop – said Nigeru – my hair will end all messed up this way.

_Ha. Did not the wind and the sand did that already? – Said Green Devil.

_Take the scroll you asked for – said Nigeru’s sister.

_Ah, this belong to me. Thank you.

_Doing jobs for the ‘Eight’ and the ‘Box’ can surely bring profit.

_Indeed. We both can profit from this business. Now, allow me to leave.

Nigeru and her sister prepared to return. In the desert, among the buildings weirdly placed in the middle of nowhere, something attracted Nigeru’s attention, who then asked her sister about what was that. It was an orphanage. High in the walls of the building, close to the roof, letters announced the name of the place. “Kinder 511”.

As they approach the place, they saw across the metallic fence a scaring number of kids, all slightly younger than Nigeru. Some of them were asking for coins or food, all of them had dirty clothes. The place was still inside the desert of Hokorigakure, but somewhat close to the border that leads to Haigakure. Approaching the place it was possible to hear voices inside the building, “Ah, buyers, we can get rid of these useless pieces of meat”.

_What is this place? – asked Nigeru’s sister.

_Hello, I am Emil – said an old woman, then pointing to an old man – and this is my husband, Sebe. In this land of no one, we are the owners of this orphanage.

_This place look… in bad condition.

_The place is overpopulated. There is orphans from corner to corner. Are you interested in our product?

_P-product… – she stared in the fence direction again, seeing a kid with fabrics wrapped in a bloody leg, sitting on the ground and playing with the sand – these children are a business?

_It is harsh times. Good will alone cannot keep this place active.

_Some of these kids are hurt. What that one have? – Asked her, pointing to the kid she saw.

_Ah, why? You are interested in that broken piece… we are going to sacrifice it this weekend.

_Sacrifice?

_Yes. We do not have the money to get medicine. Besides, it helps to prevent everyone from starving. We sacrifice an ill piece every month. If you want it you can buy.

_Ugh. How much do you want?

_It is five hundred each piece.

“It is five hundred each piece”, the words would haunt her forever. That day she adopted a little girl, saving her from the inhuman conditions in which she lived. Nigeru questioned her decision, saying that she could never help every single kid. She answered that although the world is rotten, every single spark of hope can make more than enough difference in someone’s life and help to change the world. At that age, Nigeru could not care less, though.



Hashita:
Appearance: Mature woman with brown eyes and black hair that often wear a shinobi outfit.
About: She is a calm and optimist person. She works doing dangerous missions for secret organizations, usually of the kind that is illegal in some villages. Her biggest hope is to bring a comfortable life for both herself and her sister, Nigeru.



Episode 3 – Family Structure

Date of log: 8 years before first meeting Osoreito. Hokorigakure (dust)

One year passed since Hashita adopted a little girl. She was surprised to discover that the orphanage would sacrifice the girl for having a simple infection. In less than one month, she was healthy already. After asking the girl about her name, she said that it was ‘Kanna’.

During a long time, Nigeru’s relationship with Kanna was troubled. Hashita tried her best to get Nigeru to understand the new situation. Nigeru’s resistance was enough to make her say that Kanna is not and will never be part of her family. Kanna’s presence is something she would eventually have to accept.

It is some random weekend and Hashita is not in a mission. A cute little girl is running around the corridors and rooms of the hideout. Kanna was lively and energetic, different from when she was in the orphanage. She stopped by a room and made a comment:

_Mommy says you are my aunt now, but you look so young to be an aunt!

_I am not your a… – Nigeru remembered all the times her sister scolded her – ah, I do not want to have anything to do with you.

_I like your doll, it is pretty like you – said her right before returning to run around the place.

_Eh! No! Since when are you with my doll? Come back, it is mine.

Nigeru chased her around the corridors while Hashita shouted for both of them to stop. Hashita sighed, realizing that her home has never been so happy. Her biggest dream was to give the three of them a normal life. Her family gave her the will to keep getting the money needed to have the most comfortable life possible.

Hashita’s involvement with obscure jobs was also dangerous. Her life was in constant risk, an unworthy price for the money she initially judged big. She wanted to retire one day and fully engage in taking care of her sister and adopted daughter. She made it a habit to tell Nigeru how important having friends is and even made a list with all the persons she trust, believing to have made many friends during the jobs she took.

That day, during the night, Hashita reunited everyone and told stories, as she did for Nigeru occasionally when she was younger. Everyone was entertained in that cold night, wrapped in blankets. They laughed and were astonished some times. Hashita turned to Nigeru after finishing her last story and said:

_Hey, I am finished. I cannot do this alone, your time to tell a story Nigeru.

_Ah, come on. I do not know anything to tell.

_Anything work, really.

_Ok, I will, hm… How about the blonde dwarf that found a black monster full of eyes.

_Last time I heard a story about a blonde dwarf and a bunch of eyes, the dwarf ended up losing an arm and a leg, and his brother’s soul was stuck in a pile of metal scraps.

_Eh? What?

_Nothing… proceed with the story.

Nigeru told a random story she just improvised in the moment, enough to hold Kanna attention for a few minutes. They eventually went to sleep, tired. Hashita was happy to make good use of her free time, spending it with what was left of her family.



Episode 4 – The Rotten Cannot Flourish

Date of Log: 3 years before first meeting Osoreito. Hokorigakure (dust)

Five years passed in a blink. Hashita managed to make some wealth working with criminals, giving her family a comfortable life. Nigeru were worried that her sister could get hurt, but she usually came back home in one piece, almost every time. Hashita went out to work that day, saying goodbye to Nigeru during the morning and asking her to take care of Kanna.

Nigeru was an adult by now and Kanna was a teen, close from becoming an adult. Hashita barely aged, in appearance. Nigeru saw her sister go into the desert, disappearing in the horizon. She went to check Kanna. She walked a corridor and opened a door, discovering that Kanna was already wake.

Nigeru could still remember when Kanna were still a cute little kid. Now she was different. Kanna’s tanned skin reflected the light of the torches inside the hideout. Her face was looking young and pretty. Nigeru said:

_Good morning, are you done hibernating?

_Aunt. Where is my mom?

_I already said I am not your… gr, I mean. She is in a mission. It may take some days. Until she is back, I am in charge here.

Hashita traveled to Heizugakure...



This is it. I did not even finished the fourth episode. Now I will sum up what was supposed to happen afterwards, in the long term.



Spoiler alert. Long text alert.

Spoiler: show
-Hashita is captured, because Green Devil sold info about her whereabouts to the village’s forces.
-Nigeru notices that her sister is taking too many days to return and decide to go to the village, to resupply food and water. There she finds out that Hashita was captured.
-Some weeks later, the Kage authorized the experimentation of genjutsu on prisoners during interrogations.
-Nigeru went outside the desert, searching for Hashita’s friends, to ask them to rescue her sister.
-A rich, fat and influent leader of some kind of mafia was one of Hashita’s friends. He refused to help without gaining a big reward, bigger than what Nigeru offered. According to him, he only does what return profit and that is selling explosives (a product that is forbidden in some villages and that must be brought from black markets). She eventually makes deals with him, in the future, getting explosives to invade Hokorigakure.
-An assassin with blue clothes and two silver swords was one of Hashita’s friends. At first, he refuses to help, but only because he did not knew the target was Hashita. He then accept the task, mysteriously refusing to accept any form of reward at all and insisting to complete the task alone, as soon as possible.
-Hashita is rescued, to Nigeru’s happiness. To Nigeru and Kanna misfortune, Hashita was in coma, thanks to genjutsu experiments during her interrogations.
-Akarui decides to live with Nigeru and Kanna, moving to the hideout.
-Nigeru needs a job to sustain Kanna, so after training with Akarui she joins the Hokorigakure’s forces (although the Kage only accepted her because he knew about her sister incident and wanted to keep a closer eye at Nigeru).
-The genjutsu experiments on prisoners were abolished (the villagers cheered, thinking it was abolished for being inhuman but it was actually abolished due to its inefficiency)
-Nigeru discover the truth about Hashita’s failed mission: Green Devil was behind her capture.
-Nigeru pretended to accept a mission in Hazegakure to serve the village, but actually just wanted an excuse to search for Green Devil (the Kage and the elders were suspicious of her intentions, but wanted to confirm that she still had a grudge against Green Devil and the village for causing harm to her sister).
-Nigeru kills Green Devil, breaking his bones with taijutsu and even holding his heart in her hand before killing him. She lies to Hanaka, her superior, saying that the mission was a failure because Green Devil started an attack against her. Her comrades gave her the nickname 'Super Green Devil’.
-Nigeru plots a revenge against the village, slowly accumulating money and resources to start a war against the village.
-Osoreito joins the Intelligence Division of Hokorigakure and Diaries of Fear happens.
-Nigeru discover about Kanna’s powers (Hashita asked Kanna to hide her powers from the world, to avoid greedy and sinister intentions from other persons).
-Akarui fell in love for Kanna, but the relationship was disapproved by Nigeru, since she thought it was a distraction for Kanna, who had a crucial part in her plan.
-Hashita dies, triggering the beginning of Nigeru’s procedements to start a war.
-Ultimately, Akarui and Nigeru have a heated discussion, which result in Akarui abandoning Nigeru and leaving the village. (Nigeru told him to stay away from Kanna during the war, since he was a distraction, which triggered Akarui’s anger, since he believed Nigeru to be ungrateful for all his assistance [including rescuing Hashita])
-Nigeru asks Kanna if she really wants to participate in the war, fearing for her life.
-Nigeru’s plan fails. She dies during the war. Kanna dies as well.
-Last episode: Nigeru had written a letter for Kanna, in case Kanna gave up participating in the war. There, she apologize for dispelling Akarui and for including Kanna in her plans. She concluded during the last day before the war, that Kanna should live her life with Akarui instead of risking her life in a suicide mission. She did not hated Kanna for being adopted, but loved her with all her might, for being the only thing left in her life. The final paragraph, of the final episode, would be something on the lines: “Kanna did not had to die, neither did Akarui, but she was too stubborn that day and decided to follow her aunt to the last moment. Courage is not what Kanna lacked that day, what she lacked that day was… the will to escape!”
-(Akarui discovered about Kanna’s death and decided to continue with Nigeru’s plan, concluding that the world was rotten. This is what resulted in DoF Arc 3).




That is all folks!

Diaries of Fear – Arc 3

Episode 13 – Business Left to Do

Date of log: 2 days after the war. Hokorigakure (dust)

Osoreito woke up. Apparently, not having your village under danger feel great. He went down the stairs and checked the members of his family that were there. He then went to the front door to search for his favorite journal, Dusty Journal.

That moment he remembered that he still owed that kid some coins. Jim… how could he forget? It has been a considerable good amount of days since he last paid him, so one could say Osoreito has been forgetful lately. Good thing he did not forgot to return the ring to that creepy pigeon man yesterday, he thought.

He then started to read the cover page of the journal. The title says “It is Time to See the Baby Swan Rise Again”, and bellow, “In a few weeks, Haigakure will host the ‘Baby Swan Tournament’ once again. The tournament is a minor regional event, hosted after a certain amount of time. Invite your friends in this great opportunity to enjoy a fun event. Read more in page 6”.

_Not interested. Although, the village hidden by ash is a place I have not seen yet. Ah, honestly, my father seem to visit all kinds of places.

Osoreito went through the streets again, walking calmly. Eventually, he found a familiar face in the middle of the path.

_Creepy Pigeon Man! – He said.

_Stop calling me that, I already told you I have nothing to do with that pigeons. Besides, I already told you my name a few times.

_Oh really? What is it again?

_It is…

_Well, does not matter – said him, interrupting the man.

_Then why did you a… ah, forget about it. By the way – said him while showing a ring in his finger – thanks for returning me this. I apologize for invading your territory. This ring means a lot for me.

_No worries. Is it from your family, or maybe, is it expensive?

_No. It is not even that much pure. Oh my, but the aesthetics are amazing.

_Eh?

Osoreito returned to walk after some minutes. Approaching the kage’s building, he found a group of persons making the place looks more chaotic than usual. They shouted and cheered, welcoming someone among then. Upon closer inspection, the Kage was trying to enter the building and everyone nearby stopped to see him.

It was uncommon to see the Hokorikage in person. He usually goes to the building earlier. The Kage is one of the busiest persons Osoreito knows, having to take care of all kinds of problems all the time. Osoreito waited some minutes to enter the place with some peace, searching for the office.

After walking some corridors, he came across a locked room. Nigeru once showed him the place. The torture, the old methods to interrogate prisoners, the door was enough to give chills. Is the past gone now, or are the memories fated to bring eternal nightmares?

Osoreito went to the office and there, Hanaka gave him bad news. Although everyone thought the village’s forces took care of the enemy, they did not found a certain someone during the war. A person nobody found among the bodies, a person that did not showed up in the war at all. The shinobi in dark blue, by now, already had the identity uncovered as Akarui.

The interesting part, according to Hanaka, is the fact that contacts witnessed Akarui looking for information about the Baby Swan Tournament. The reason behind his interest in the tournament is unknown. It was time to further investigate. Osoreito and Hanaka would travel to Haigakure today, during nighttime, in the soul-freezing cold of the desert.

She assigned him a simple mission, one able to cost part of the evening. Osoreito accomplished the mission in a short time. Any shinobi that worked in a village for enough time is accustomed to receive a variety of missions. He then went to his home to prepare for the travel. His grandma insisted that they still trained that day, sooner than usual of course.

A noise was coming from the front door, as Hanaka got there to call the rookie shinobi. They walked through the village, approaching the walls. The sky, almost totally blackened, slowly started to transform into its night form. The stars are also a way to guide oneself in the wild.

_Why am I going? – asked Osoreito.

_This is a mission of significant importance. Track down such a dangerous figure… discover if he want to follow the Silence Princess’ original plan.

_I am tired and it is cold here. Why did you gave me a mission during the afternoon?

_This is a mission we cannot refuse.

_I am tired and it is cold h…

_This is a mission we cannot refuse.

_I am tired and…

_This is a mission we cannot…

_Ok. Gods, ok. Got it.

They approached a person with a covered face and a dark red cloak. Hanaka handed the person some coins. That person would be their guide. Good thing they prepared supplies for the travel. The three of them went to the desert, traveling bellow a cold night full of stairs.

According to Osoreito, the desert in everyone’s soul, like the desert of Hokorigakure, can be lonely sometimes.  Maybe his brain was merely starting to freeze, making him state random sentences. Maybe he truly believed that loneliness is inherent in a person nature. Either way, they would not be so alone if a bandit attacked. Moving outside the villages require careful action to avoid danger.

Both Osoreito and Hanaka were tired, thanks to not resting properly. They eventually stopped to rest, after some hours. Eventually, the group continued their travel, the next day. After more hours, the background changed. Dark colored rocks and earth became more common to see than the sand and the typical but small-numbered vegetation of Hokorigakure. They were finally close to reach their destination.



Akarui:
Appearance: Man that wear dark blue clothing.
About: He is usually a calm and confident shinobi, specialist in assassination. He served Nigeru the Silence Princess during a period, since he is one of the few friends Nigeru’s sister had during her lifetime.

Hayame (DarthTyrael):
Appearance: Man with hazel colored eyes and dark brown hair that wear a noble robe.
About: He is an experienced and skillful shinobi that served the village for years. He is the current Hokorikage… what else could you possibly want to know about him?

General Discussion / Diaries of Fear - Arc 2
« on: August 16, 2017, 16:21:12 »
As I said in the last episode, the first arc of DoF is over.
The new arc arrived.
Thanks everyone for reading and commenting.
I hope you enjoy this 'sucessful' series.
Is this what you call a sucess? Meh, who knows, without further delay I present you:



Diaries of Fear – Arc 2

Episode 7 – Train Nonstop!

Date of log: 1 day after the Princess’ betrayal. Hokorigakure (dust)

Osoreito woke up with a conversation noise, it seems like there was a guest in the house. As he went down the stairs, his grandma greeted him.

_I came to visit my family and they told me a disgraceful new. Is not it true, grandson, that you got your lazy butt beaten?

_Y-yeah so what?

_You will go through a harsh training, again! I expect to hear no complains.

_And who will coach me? Probably, the only suitable fighter in this house is my sister and…

_No, your sister’s skills are rusty. Lately, she only want to know about caravans and trades.

_Then?

_I will train you… I have been training without permission from your sister.

_This is… I cannot even… ugh.

_From now on, you will train hard after work. There is no escape. I will mold your lazy butt into a monster!

Osoreito left his home and checked the front of the house for his favorite journal. It was there. The title says “Interviewer Becomes the Star of the Moment”, and bellow, “After a series of interviews with famous personalities of all villages, the interviewer himself became notorious everywhere for his ability to interview. After another interviewer interviewed him, he stated that he is visiting Okagakure next, to see his fans. Read more in page 6”.

_Impressive, I guess.

Osoreito went to the kage’s building and met Hanaka in the Office. The Intelligence Division was efficient, truly, since they managed to restore part of the documents lost by Rinku. There was enough intact parts to identify whom the documents mentioned and what peculiarity they had.

Years ago, a young unidentified girl got involved in an incident in a small community living in the desert of Hokorigakure. The documents classify the girl as something known roughly as Legendary Shinobi. Authorities found the place one day, desert and with piles of dead persons, the girl was the only one found alive. Since Rinku got alive to the kage’s building and with his money, and since the ‘robber’ cared to slice the papers in a pattern that made them mostly impossible to restore, then, the documents were probably the true target.

It is possible to speculate that the reason to why someone would get rid of such papers is to conceal an obscure scheme. That was, however, not the only thing Hanaka had to inform him. Super Green Devil, now self-entitled Silence Princess, goes by the name of Nigeru and she apparently killed the former Green Devil as revenge for betraying her sister. The betrayal caused her sister, a high rank criminal, to end arrested by the Hokorigakure forces. Eventually, her comrades rescued her and there is no notice about her since then. If Nigeru hold a grudge against Hokorigakure, then the life of the Hokorikage and the elders are in danger.

It is unknown whether the unidentified girl is involved in this mess or if they plan to either enslave or assassinate her, but now it is known that the ‘Princess’ is involved with the mysterious shinobi dressed in dark blue. Osoreito was confused with the amount of surprises he got. He worked in the building, helping with the paperwork, and reflecting about all the things that happened recently.

Osoreito went back home, the sun was about to leave, his day however was not about to end. His grandma was waiting in a room, it seems like she took the objects closer to the wall and there was more space in the middle. The carpet on the floor was there to indicate the limit of the training space, as it did not fully covered the floor.

_I am guessing you are ready, boy. Because you should be – said her while hitting the ground with her cane.

He remained silent, looking tired of working and soulless. She proceeded to make a first movement and talk.

_It does not matter whether you want to act or flee – she waved the cane at a low height, making Osoreito fall on the ground – since the moment you came, you are not giving me proper attention.

_This hurts, so exhausted, I feel dead.

_Dead is how you would be if this was a serious fight – said her while pointing the cane close to his neck – so stop being pathetic and give this fight some thought.

_Alright.

He got up, positioning his body in a basic fighting stance. His face had not changed, so she waved the cane in a similar manner, expecting to scold him again about paying attention. He dodged by withdrawing his feet and kicked in a middle height, the kick met her other arm that blocked the attack. She pushed him, creating a distance.

Knowing well that she could use more of her strength, she changed her stance, holding the cane with both hands, as if she held a sword. She charged using multiple swings. Osoreito had no choice but to block with his arms. Every hit was stronger than the last, revealing the fact that she was barely using any strength in the beginning.

Holding the cane with one hand, she waved the object at a low height for a third time. As Osoreito blocked the attack, she could not contain her smile, quickly moving her other arm a grabbing his unprotected neck. She forced him into the ground and said:

_Oh well, that was a good warming for today. Your skills are horrible, but we can start the training anyway.

_Warming? What have I done to the spirits to deserve this?

_From now on I expect you to charge your chakra while we fight.

_B-both things simultaneously?

_I cannot enhance your genjutsu, but you should be able to keep your chakra control at a satisfactory level even while busy fighting. It is essential that you focus your chakra quickly, even while in physical combat. Cast ninjutsu and genjutsu as soon as the opportunity arrives.

_You, on the other hand, can channel chakra to strengthen your taijutsu. Did not I guessed it right?

_We shall begin – said her while channeling chakra into the cane and hitting the ground, the impact made a bunch of dust in the ground lift and some chakra disperse from the point of the cane.

How long can he withstand such training? He questioned the efficiency of her methods, but his complaints was of no effect. Osoreito trained during some minutes, ending his day soon after.

Diaries of Fear – Arc 1

Episode 1 – Baby’s First Steps

The great hero of the century was sleeping in his bed, clueless about his surroundings. All of a sudden, the window broke open, a figure was standing there with a cool pose, the right hand closed and touching the ground and around him, pieces of glass. However, at this point, our hero had already jumped out of the bed, announcing:

_Your presence do not surprise me, villainous villain. I should know it was you, no one less than Swift Pigeon, my arch nemesis – said our majestic hero.

_Oh, what a cunning vision you have there. This time however, I will be the one to beat you, Captain Osoman.

Swift Pigeon threw a kunai in his direction, but it was of no effect. Sparks appeared as the kunai collided with his body. Osoman ripped his own shirt, revealing his big muscles, shiny and magically oiled muscles that is. Osoman replied:

_Your puny kunai is no match for my super manly man muscles. Besides, you already tried that before. I am sure you remember how it ended last time.

_Yes, but this time fool, I will combine my superior speed with my power. Not even your muscle can resist my new technique – said Pigeon as he reached his pocket for another kunai – Piercing Pointed Feather!

Swift Pigeon jumped high and used his legs on the roof to give him impulse downside. In the last moment, however, Captain Osoman punched his face, throwing him far away, in the window direction. With his nemesis unconscious on the street, Captain Osoman smiled and celebrated his might victory.

Ha, now let take a rest here. If you think this is a story about a superhero and his incredible adventures, then oh my, you are surely wrong. Now look here at what actually happened with Osoreito, the protagonist of this story.

Date of log: 1 hour before joining the Intelligence Division. Hokorigakure (dust).

Osoreito was sleeping comfortably, and eventually woke up. Suddenly, he realized, his bed was full of pigeons. In that moment, he jumped in terror, for seeing the scene. He waved his arms and screamed. The pigeons were flying everywhere. Eventually the pigeons flew away, in the open window. With his heart still beating fast, Osoreito was trying to understand the situation.

_Oh, the window was open, which must be the reason for why those pigeons were there. I probably forgot to close it – said Osoreito while thinking for a moment – no, wait a second.

He realized terrified, suddenly, that it would not be possible.

_B-but I closed the window yesterday. Would not it mean the pigeons opened the window by themselves? – He was standing there for a moment, but he had not time to worry about that and proceeded with his day.

He looked from the window for a moment, and the pigeons were not around. His room was in the third floor and the neighborhood was relatively wealthy. After the daily duties, Osoreito went to the front door and got the journal, exclaiming.

_Ah, my favorite, Dusty Journal! I have enough time to read the cover.

The title says “Rise in Parents Deaths”, and bellow, “Watch out if you have children, there has been a rise in deaths by the hands of criminals everywhere and they seem to have a preference for persons with children. Many kids are becoming orphans consequently. Read more in page 6”.

_Oh, poor kids. Now I really need to go, I will read the rest later.

Osoreito proceeded to walk the street. Today he would start serving the Intelligence Division for the first time. Eventually, he reached the kage’s building, a big construction with people entering and exiting constantly. After getting into the reception, he looked for the balcony. A black haired man was attending the persons, one after another.

_And you there? – said the man.

_I graduated recently in the ninja academy. I applied for the Intelligence D… – Osoreito could not complete the sentence, the man interrupted him.

_So you are the new member, hello I am Rinku. Sorry but I cannot talk with you right now, I am busy as you can see. Just go through this corridor there – he pointed – Hanaka is already waiting for you.

Osoreito went there, and looked around for a while, perceiving the numerous doors and corridors that connected there. Finally, he found the right office and slowly approached.

_You are late! – shouted someone from inside, but Osoreito was still outside the office and could not see anyone.

_What?

_It is your first day – Osoreito finished joining the place by this point – and you are already coming late, this is going to be a long year.

_Oh, you know that I am the new member without even asking me.

_One of our most important jobs is… know stuff. Now, stop changing the subject, why are you late?

_Killer pigeons attacked me. I swear!

_What the… – she stared with an incredulous face – I have no time for your crazy stories. I am Hanaka, your superior for now on. Wait, I will assign you to a mission now – she searched among some papers – here, today is the janitor’s day off, but the west corridors still need some cleaning. Now take a broom and go!

_C-cleaning? That is not exactly what I was expect… – Hanaka interrupted him.

_Now!

Osoreito went to clean the corridors, as there was little to no choice. Halfway of the process however, the boredom got him and his mind was soon somewhere else.

_Take this, evil ninjas – he started swinging the broom – evil ninjas got no chance against the broom of justice. Captain Osoman will vanquish you all!

Suddenly a girl dressed in green came crossing the corridor, she looked young but after a closer inspection, it became clear that she was actually an adult. Osoreito tried to hide the broom as soon as possible. The girl dressed in green asked:

_Why are you hiding this broom? Should not you be cleaning the place?

_Eh, I am… I am cleaning the wall behind me.

_Oh, how resourceful – she smiled – but I do not think you will finish anytime soon, that is, if you keep sweeping “evil ninjas”. Ha.

She went through a door. Osoreito eventually ended his duty, and got back home to end his day. After wishing his family a good night, he went to his bedroom. He found a group of empty pages in his room and decided to take note of any important event that happen in his daily life. What kind of notes possibly awaits him, in the future?

Here is a version made by NinjaMirage (or 'cmsurfer' if you have been around for enough time). My original draft made Osoreito look like a beggar, even though he is from a wealthy family. This version went to a different direction. From this angle he appears to have 'bewbs' and the hair is looking fabulous! (resized, original in page 2) Sponsored by L'Oréal Shinobi, because your ninja hair deserves the best! On a serious note, the 'Monkey King Enma' weapon was a nice touch.

So far, this is the only different version of this character made by another member. I hope you enjoyed it.
