    Bookmarker's Notes

    Gai grunts at the implied insult but rests his hands comfortably over Kakashi's stomach regardless, fingers tapping thoughtfully and gently on his sides, which reminds Kakashi of the time an enemy had thrown knives simultaneously at both his kidneys.

    Summary

    Spring is an insidious season that a good Shinobi should avoid at all cost. If he can't do that, he can at least avoid falling for someone way too nice and out of his class altogether.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Screw endurance training. Kakashi didn't think he'd ever withstood any survival exercise that could beat watching these hellions for a single day. The only reason Iruka wasn't a super-elite ninja by now was that he must be too tired to pass the exams.

    "Katsuo! Don't stab your little friends with a kunai."

    Maybe he was in training to take over as Hokage.

    "Okay, who threw that shuriken?"

    Either that, or there were no children in the target range at all, only Iruka clones, and the real kids were buried somewhere in the woods out back.

    Summary

    A and S rank missions are killers - especially the kind Tsunade hands out since she's been made Godaime. Kakashi has handled some pretty rough ones over the years with his teams, wow, he could tell you stories...

    But his team is gone. He's no longer a Jounin-sensei and he no longer has to watch over a bunch of brats. Now his missions are ANBU level.

    ANBU missions are different. The view through that mask is narrow. There is nothing to protect, only targets to kill. There is no mercy, no regret, no remorse. No prisoners. It's very simple, really. Considerably simpler than being a Jounin-sensei. If only Gai didn't insist on joining his rival/friend/partner around on these, it'd be simpler still.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    In their small team, Gai was the one who held the powerful, driving belief in their cause and their strength and in Youth and Friendship, and Kakashi was the paranoid bastard. It was called task distribution or something.

    Summary

    Kakashi had heard people complain about 'routine', calling it humdrum and boring. For Kakashi, routine meant that nobody was actively trying to kill him and there were no missions that day. Routine was good.

    An implausible green and orange streak vaulted over the iron fence and darted off a cherry tree, causing a dramatic shower of petals around him as he hit the ground. Gai, showing up for his regular challenge. Yup, still routine...Until Gai told him what he was challenging Kakashi at this time.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    It's like...it's like Taijutsu. You got a lot of different moves. You have your probing attacks to figure out what your opponent's made of, you got preparatory moves to set up your major strikes and you have your deathblows. You pick up favorites and specialties and signature techniques, and you have to figure out which move is most appropriate for a given situation."

    Sex for dummies and extreme martial artists, Kakashi thought wearily, not quite believing what he'd just spouted. But as long as it worked...
