The real root of the animosity between Orochimaru and Itachi. Kisame tries to convince Itachi to do something he swore never to do again...
(#) ladygizarme 2006-06-26 09:40:02 PMlmao! it's refreshing to read something on the lighter side yet still so in character for Itachi!! i wish my similar threats while babysitting as a teen had worked so well XD
Author's responseI wish the same thing. Still, helps when you've got a Mangekyou Sharingan to back up your threats, eh? ^_^
(#) baddaytoday 2006-09-27 02:20:44 AMGod it's funny!! Therefore, the whole thing was the reason Itachi plotting to get Orochimaru quit Akatsuki!! >_
Author's responseWellll, I imagine Orochimaru had other reasons for leaving the organization...but yeah, you just know Itachi chased him off to avoid having to babysit the Sound Four like he did Sasuke. (I personally loved babysitting, but it's not for everyone, and especially not for Itachi. Oro should have asked Tobi or Deidara instead.)
- Wow. Itachi sounded sooooo like Carcer just then. "What can I give a good little lad then? Oh, someone's ear, and it's still warm. Beat it kid."
I love your finely tuned sense of humor. I double that poor spider boy felt the same way, though. (Sorry, I can never remember the Sound Four's names, although it looks as if you have a soft spot for them). Evil author of delight, I bow to you.
Author's responseSpiderboy=Kidoumaru, aka the victim of very uncaring parents or the worst name-pun in the whole series. And yes, I love tormenting the Sound Four, they're too much fun for words.
...funny, Kisame struck me more as a Carcer type, what with his cheerfully going on about hacking Naruto's limbs off. Oh god don't give me ideas about Carrot attempting to arrest the entirity of Akatsuki.
- Well, I know the names when I read them, and say "oh yeah, that's so-and-so" but when I try to match up the mental picture of so-and-so with a name, my mind draws a blank.
Wow. I never thought of the Carrot thing. But it is something that he would try to do, sadly enough. They'd, of course, beat him like Wolfgang, but that's what Angua is for, isn't it? Prod buttock werewolf time!
To be fair, to Kisame, yes, he is far more Carcer-like, and to be even fairer to Itachi never in a million years would he ever be as damned cheerfully insane as Carcer. However, in that moment, at that time, and in that place, he embodied the spirit of the psychopath.
You know, now that I think about it, the person(s) who is/are most like Carcer is Sakon/Ukon (be super proud that I remembered their names. Although this is probably because their names are easier to spell than the others). After all Carcer has a demon on both shoulders, and Sakon and Ukon are demons inside each other's shoulders .
Probably should use this time to put a supportive word in, so keep up the good work ^^.
(#) jesska-chan 2008-12-02 01:34:53 PMHilarious! After all the angst I've been reading today, it was so great o come across this little piece of genius. Itachi was so in character I couldn't believe it (I love that messed-up clan-destroyer). Poor Kidoumaru, though! Maybe that can be karma biting him on the ass for screwing with Neji?
Anyway, great work!
