    Summary

    “As Rokudaime Hokage, it is my responsibility to indicate a successor to the Council, prior to my retirement,” Kakashi says, steepling his fingers together like he didn’t take office under the promise and threat of Nanadaime Hokage Uzumaki Naruto. “Upon formally submitting his candidacy, the Council’s responsibility is to vet the candidate for suitability and liabilities.”

    Iruka wants to gesture for Kakashi to get on with it and stop being so dramatic about information Iruka already knows, but is aware that will only extend this further.

    “The Council has determined that Naruto is unfit to take on the office of Hokage,” Kakashi says.

    Summary

    Tobirama feels his chakra curl in irritation, the warmth of his fire recoiling from him, like Tobirama's very presence is repulsive, abhorrent. This is an exercise in repetition, he knows Madara detests him, like most people, but absolutely nothing about it ever gets easier, it only ever gets worse. Something painful drops through his chest, and the feeling is overwhelming, excruciating.

    Someday, he thinks. His heart will finally have enough and it will quit, stop beating and grow cold, crushed under the pain. And so he would die, not under the blade of an enemy but the weight of his own loneliness, rejected and excluded.

    "I am only trying to be polite, I do not mean to pick a fight. In this time of peace, I do not see any reason for strife." Tobirama replies, tired and curt.

    "My version of peace," Madara looks at him indifferently, "has no place for someone like you."

    Tobirama watches wordlessly as Madara walks away, even as something inside him breaks.

    Summary

    “So,” Red Hood says, lying on his back on the rooftop and breathing heavily, his helmet discarded next to him. It’s hard to tell if he’s panting due to exertion from their fight or if it’s still a reaction to Chessmaster’s dirtier moves. He really should learn to wear a cup. “What position do I qualify for, anyway? And if you say fuckin’ pawn—”

    Chessmaster turns to him, heart beating faster as he studies his face. He has the same crooked grin he always wore as Robin, and it makes Chessmaster yearn for something he gave up for lost years ago. “Please be my queen,” he blurts out. To hell with waiting.

    “Wha…?” Red Hood looks very confused, but he doesn’t seem like he’s against the idea.

    Excellent. Chessmaster can work with that.
