Tetsuma bows. He's a bit vague on 'how deep.' "Lord Hokage."

Permalink

"Tetsuma, Ms Saotome, I have a few more questions..." And he proceeds to ask Tetsuma about his life with Danzo.

Permalink

"I didn't see him much. Didn't want to get him mad. I remember hearing one of the others got him mad once and didn't do well. The teacher was always really harsh with us..." And proceeds with other tales of woe, including vague descriptions of places and people.

Permalink

"If you would agree, the Yamanaka clan have a technique that allows them to view memories. Your memories of the base could help us tremendously."

Permalink

"Okay."

Permalink

"A technique to view memories?"

Permalink

"And this--isn't some kind of magic?"

Permalink

Amused, "Unless you consider chakra manipulation magic, no."

Permalink

"I mean, mostly it just seems like martial arts. I guess Martial Arts Telepathy is only a little weirder than Martial Arts Tea Ceremony."

Permalink

"It's related to the illusions, I believe. Now, I'm sure you want to get on with your day. Ms Saotome, Yamato can escort you around if you have anything you want to get done while we check on Tetsuma's memories."

Permalink

"I have no idea what there would be to do, here!"

Permalink

"I'm sure Yamato will be able to show you some things."

Permalink

A blond - the same one from the night before - comes to escort Tetsuma away while Yamato gestures for Ranko.

"Just you and me today," Yamato says. "Anything you want to do?"

Permalink

"You guys don't have any weird laws about marrying or killing people I need to watch out for, right?"

Permalink

"Well, obviously don't kill anyone unprovoked - if it's self-defense you can argue that in court. No weird laws about marrying that I know of."

Permalink

"Yeah, that's not a weird law. There's this one village of warrior women where if you beat one of them in combat, if you're a woman they have to kill you and if you're a man they have to force you to marry them, is why I asked, there's one of them after my brother."

Permalink

"...Ah. That sounds... Interesting. I've been to places with similarly weird things you could get executed for, though. But nowhere I know makes it easy to accidentally marry someone... Accidentally propose, maybe, there's some places where exchanging poetry or giving gifts is significant."

Permalink

"They're better than the Musk, at least."

Permalink

"Those are the warrior women?"

Permalink

"No, no--the warrior women are the Joketsuzoku, and the Joketsuzoku are better than the Musk."

Permalink

"What happened with the Musk?"

Permalink

"They throw animals in the Spring of Drowned Girl to marry and take baby boys away from their mothers and raise them with no contact with girls or women at all."

Permalink

"...What does throwing animals in the Spring of Drowned Girl accomplish?"
