Who’re You? – Madara/OC

“Who’re you?…Wait, don’t answer that…”

Bemused brow

“You’re a ninja and the less I know about you the safer I’ll be”

“Smart I suppose, what are you doing?”

“Testing a theory”

“What?”

“I doubt you’d care, surely you have something more important to do than watch me fiddle in a field”

“I don’t”

“Fine then, I guess there isn’t anything I can do about it, in fact you might even be helpful”

“How?”

“What do you know about ‘fujinjustsu’, I heard it’s a ninja discipline mainly”

“Its not a speciality of mine, though I do know a few basic seals”

“Any of them involve energy transference?”

“Elaborate”

“Do you know seals that involve energy or chakra being moved or released as opposed to solid matter”

“Only one, it’s main use is as an emergency top-up, if you like”

“Great, could it be modified transfer energy over a distance, using a conduit like rope?”

“Perhaps, why do you want to know and why should I tell you?

“I want to know because I’m working a on harnessing energy from photosynthetic material or if that fails grass”

 

“There is no reason for you to tell me what you know, but seeing as you seem determined to watch me work and it would have no negative repercussions on you I figured you would mind”

“You talk too much”

“I talk as much or as little as it takes to articulate my thoughts, thank you very much”

“Let me see that”

“There’s some spare at the base of that tree you’re leaning on”

“Where did you learn these seals?”

“Nowhere, I picked up the basics of fujinjutsu from a textbook and adapted it to suit my purposes”

“And you never trained as a shinobi?”

“No, and I certainly don’t want to”

“Why?”

“Why should I want to? I’m a thinker not a fighter and none of my goals involve jumping through trees and assassinating for money”

“What about power? Don’t you want that?”

“Not particularly, I want to live a long and secure and I don’t need to short lasers out of my eyes to do that”

“Power is there is in this world, the powerless, the weak perish aand the strong survive”

“Bullshit, in your world maybe that’s true but most people can get by just fine without being particularly strong; physically or mentally, besides, I’m sure just as many genin die as jounin, there’s always a bigger fish in the pond”

“Careful little girl, I might just be tempted to prove you wrong”

“Even if you did kill me, it’d just mean that I was in the wrong place at the wrong time not vindicate your entire world view”

“So calm, do you doubt I could do it?”

“Not particularly, I’m sure you could kill me I just can’t see why you’d really want to”

“For all you know I could be a psychopathic murderer”

“Perhaps, it seems statistically unlikely, even amongst shinobi, that I’d meet a man willing to kill me with no justification or gain involved, after all I doubt I have a price on my head”

“You do think like a scientist, don’t you?”

“I suppose…I’m leaving now, the system is set up, I just have to wait”

“I’ll be seeing you again”

“Please don’t, you’re clearly a powerful man with powerful enemies and I don’t want to get involved with that”

“Too scared?”

“No, it’s just a matter of risk assessment, why bait a rabid dog if one stands nothing to gain?”

“How poetic, but I don’t care”

“Oh well I tried, see you later shinobi-san
