"Yes. And indirectly read his mind, if I prompt the right memories. So far he hasn't noticed me doing that, or doesn't care."

Permalink

"Interesting."

Permalink

"Ah."

And he sets to paging through Kabuto's mind.

(Another person whose life was screwed over by Danzo. Sasuke's aware he himself got lucky. He... Doesn't really care, or feel pity, that Kabuto didn't. They dig their own graves, ultimately.)

Ellisaria examines the room they're in. Or what's left of it, anyway. Any trace markings, scrawled diagrams, seals, et cetera?

Permalink

There's a few edges of etchings, especially clustered around the far back wall.

Permalink

Do they depict anything interesting?

Permalink

Mostly seem to be the same sort of esoteric inscriptions as seals and inscribed techniques.

Worth remembering for later. Or if Karin's not busy with Kabuto at the moment, maybe she can take a look.

Permalink

Karin seems to have wrapped up what she was working on, and comes over. "What'd you find?"

Permalink

"I am not entirely sure. It seems to be fragments of a seal or something like it."

Permalink

She peers a bit closer. "Pretty sure that's some kind of trap - an inscribed technique anchoring an illusion over here - possibly he's hiding something with these."

Permalink

"Can you tell where it might have been?"

Permalink

She spins, slowly, frowning, and then points. "Yeah. There. He was accounting for my sensing, I think, but not well enough."

Permalink

"What is it?"

Permalink

" - It's. Not a hollow in the stone or anything. I think it's... A path. Metaphysically speaking."

Permalink

"Like a portal? Or one of your summoning spells?"

Permalink

" - It feels... Almost like nature chakra? Like the sage techniques he was using..."

Permalink

"A reservoir he could draw on?"

Permalink

"No... It's - connected somewhere I can't sense."

Permalink

Ellisaria flips a hand and sends a scattering of small rocks flying through the space.

Permalink

They disintegrate.

Permalink

Hm. Curious.

Permalink

"Probably part of the trap. I think it needs active chakra to bypass..."

Permalink

"Specific chakra or will any do?"

Permalink

"Probably a specific pattern, but it might be keyed to Kabuto's signature as well, or to nature chakra in general."
