"All right then."

And they can summon Minato - does Cam want to be taken along by Minato's technique, or by his own shuttle?

Permalink

Technique is fine!

Then he'll be very shortly thereafter zoomed to the exterior of a cave, with a shimmering barrier across it. Mito identifies it as a complicated barrier seal that classically requires the four anchors to be simultaneously removed by four different people trained in sealing, then touches her finger to it, draws an odd shape, and it shatters.

"Or," she says, "You can be me. Come on."

Cam claps quietly.

Permalink

She smiles a bit, and sweeps inside. There's two people there, ready for them. Mito throws a golden chain into the chest of one, a man with skull-like facepaint wielding a scythe, knocking him out of the odd circle he'd been in. She then points to the other, says, "That one is Kakuzu," who is apparently extremely wary of taking her on.

"Hello! I hear you might be in this for the money." Cam appears a gold coin and flips it in the air. "I don't know what your preferred currency is but how much of it do you want to go into retirement?"

Permalink

Kakuzu looks at where Mito is thoroughly kicking Hidan's ass, and says, "I would prefer something that's less prone to inflation. For retirement. Otherwise there's a problem of what you have always being worth less, you know."

Permalink

"Well, for that you really want to get into investing, but I don't know if the index fund has been invented here. What's a good store of value?"

Permalink

He names quantities of several mundane, non-dangerous, locally high-value things, in addition to a ridiculous amount of plain currency. (That he figures he can dole out slowly enough to avoid severe inflation problems. And invest, of course; he's not an idiot.)

Hidan somehow finds enough breath to call him a massively inventive list of curse words during the list. (Kakuzu grumbles 'finally' when Mito finishes sealing him.)

Cam produces bribery. "I commend your forward-thinking approach to the problem of excess liquidity."

Permalink

"Heh. Akatsuki paid well when they were just mercenaries, but their long term investment strategies are going to shit, so."

Permalink

"I wouldn't actually have known to guess that this'd be a correlate of supervillainy!"

Permalink

"Pissing off most of your entire potential customer base is bad business."

Permalink

"Fancy that. Pleasure doing bribery with you."

Permalink

"Pleasure being bribed."

He waves and heads out.

Permalink

"Should we go reinforce somebody else?" Cam asks Mito.

Permalink

"I need to secure and stabilize the jinchuuriki they'd had, first. I know where she is, though."

Permalink

"What form does securing and stabilizing take?"

Permalink

"Retrieve her, undo any seals interfering with her jinchuuriki seal, help stabilize her seal if it is damaged, and ensure she's safe from further harm. Ideally, I would escort her back to her home village."

Permalink

"I'd like to at least consider getting on speaking terms with the beast like with Kurama if that's feasible, although, like, obviously not if they're poised to massacre a village or something."

Permalink

"We can see."

Permalink

And off they go.

Permalink

The jinchuuriki is a blonde woman in her late teens, unconscious. Mito undoes the seal around her, pulling her out, and revives her. 

"I'm Yugito," she says, shortly, eyeing both the undead and Cam warily. "Thanks for the rescue, I guess."

Permalink

"Nice to meet you, Yugito. You need anything? Anything we should know about your beast?"
