The Facts Of Life

By Megara Waters

Action / Romance

Uchiha's Suck

"You're late." Fact 1: When an Uchiha points out your mistakes, they state them in a polite and well-mannered way. Why? Because they know it bugs you.

"Yeah, sorry about that." Fact 2: Uchiha's can sense when you're lying. Don't bother.

"Hm. No lame excuse? You're not even going to try and make something up? Are you feeling sick?" Fact 3: When an Uchiha makes an effort to appear kind, beware. An insult is around the corner. "You are looking dumber than usual." Ah, and there it is.

"I'm not sick. Quit being a jerk." Oh. No, wrong choice of words. Fact 4: When you tell an Uchiha not to do something, it makes them want to do it more.

"Oh. Gosh. Defensive, is it somebody's time of the month?" Cue poorly aimed weapon, cue target dodging followed by condescending laughter. "Wow. How did you make Genin? I mean, that was pathetic."

Truth be told, I had one of the lowest averages in the class. That's how I ended up with the two geniuses. Hotaru Uchiha, enough said. Daisuke Kimura, a taijutsu specialist, best in our class. Really, just watching the guy fight made me wince. He was brutal. His name means something like 'Great Help,' but he doesn't really talk much. To be honest, he doesn't really talk at all. The only words I remember hearing him saying is 'Where is the bathroom?" During our first day at the academy. My reply was "I don't know,' and his response was glaring and walking away. I think he may secretly still resent me for that. Why would you resent someone for not knowing where the washroom is? Well, he just seems like that kind of guy.

Me? Well umm... I want to say Genjutsu is my speciality, but having an Uchiha on your team completely throws away that angle. Anything I can do, he can do better, and faster. He hasn't even activated his bloodline yet. I hate Uchihas. So, I guess I don't really have a speciality. My chakara is wind based, and I know a few jutsus, but really having experts on your team is a pain. Even if you were normal you end up being below! And for me, who was already below. Ugh. It's a hard life being a ninja. 
 This brings us to our sensei. Now, I know we should be really respectful of our sensei's and stuff because they're old and wise and will teach us the way of the ninja, but all ours seems to do is get drunk, and then make us to do a lot of laps cause he's too hung over to teach us anything.

"Oh. Hikaru-Sensei. You're late." The funny thing about Hikaru-sensei (perhaps my favorite part) was that whenever he would hear Hotaru say something, he would pretend he didn't.

"Laps. Now. Go." See. Hung over!

:) Well? I hope you liked it. I know it's short but it's the first chapter, I just wanted to see how people would react. :p Review!!

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Usagi Kita: This story is emotional from beginning to end. You get to watch the characters struggle and grow, maturing in different ways so that they come to be the people they are meant to be.

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Jenn Deering: This is a go-to story for when you're needing a little happiness in your life. It's well-crafted, and characters are true to their show-selves. The pace is right, there are minimal grammatical errors, and the plot is fresh.

FateFellShort: I have read this story and have followed the writers on tumblr from the beginning. Its a wonderful story. Beautifully written with a really nice pace, that makes it enjoyable to read more than once. For me, fairy tail has very good characters but what the writers have done is give them more depth...
