Chapter 3: Academy Brothers and Perks

Subaru: Gamer and Shinobi

Here is the next chapter. Once again, I've got amazing support from the people adding this story to their favourites and follows, as well as reviewing it. Currently, there are 88 favourites, 134 follows and 16 reviews. Speaking of reviews, here they are:

phelipber, Westrannor and MysteriousP4R4D0X:

Thanks, I try to make these chapters good. The support from the reviews really helps motivate me to write, since I know that some people like the story. Here is the next update!

RamDLC28, OGFrosty, R1VN and Mementox:

Like you've all said, I, too, dislike the party system since it normally ruins the story. While I can appreciate why some authors may implement it, I don't like them and won't be adding it to my story unless there is an overwhelming want for them, which I don't think there is.

Guest:

I agree with you, Subaru won't be that OP. Sure he'll be OP, but he's already 6 in the last chapter and he's nowhere near a match for even Genin. Sure, he'll get exponentially stronger, but I don't plan on having him S-Rank (Kage level) until he's just left the academy. That may seem too OP or a Gary/Mary Sue, but if you think about it, Itachi was 13 when he massacred his clan in my story (technically due to something Orochimaru said when he was 21, he was 11 when he massacred his clan, but that doesn't make sense since he was ANBU captain at 13, so I am having it at 13), and he was labelled as S-Rank then. I am having Subaru reach S-Rank a year earlier, and he would probably be further than the lower S-Rank that Itachi was at 13 since he is going to be smart.

Artekha:

Here's more!

If there are any parts of the story that you think I should change, review or PM me and I'll see what I can do.

Disclaimer: I don't own Naruto, why would I?

Academy Brothers

It had been just under 2 years since I landed in this world and started living with Naruto. At first it had been hard getting kicked out of tons of shops and being overcharged. I started to see why Naruto was so addicted to ramen, outside of his Uzumaki genes – it was all he could afford. The Ichiraku Ramen stand was one of the only shops we could go to that wouldn't overcharge us. One of the only others was Yakiniku Q, which we ate at some of the time. We started to get our groceries at one of the supermarkets after Hokage-jiji had threatened to shut them down for not serving us.

Naruto hadn't changed much. He was still the small bundle of sunshine that he was when first saw him (in this world, not in the anime). However, he didn't just eat ramen, making him taller than he was in the anime, his manners were a lot better, unless he was eating ramen, and he didn't wear that 'kill-me' orange jumpsuit, and instead wore something similar to what he wore in Shippuden with the exception of his trousers, which were black. I even got the Uzumaki swirl that he had.

Right now, the two of us were walking to the Hokage Tower, which even after seeing it many times was still giant and amazing to look at.

Over the near 2 years that we had lived together, I had had a massive increase in my stats.

[Due to various activities, you get 134 STR, 124 VIT, 132 DEX, 228 INT and 34 LUC]

[Congratulations! You have levelled up! Take +5 stat points and 500 Ryo] x11

[Due to reaching 5 levels, take +1 perk point]x2

[For your birthday, take +1 perk point and 1000 Ryo]

Turns out my birthday was September 11th. I had managed to find a way to clean up all of my notifications, if I look back on them, using 'Change', the notification, then how I would like it to be set out. I did this for most of my things, including my skills. Speaking of which, I had gained a few of them and had levelled them up a lot too.

Observe: Lvl 24 (32%)

Chakra Sense: Lvl 32 (23%)

Running: Lvl 29 (67%)

Hiding: Lvl 30 (3%)

Shunshin: Lvl 11 (42%)

The Observe skill now could tell me about objects too and tell me about things in greater detail. My Chakra Sense skill has improved when I got to level 20. It now sensed everything, not just objects, but chakra signatures too. I kept it constantly active, since I could now and since there is virtually no chakra cost to me, it makes me a sensor. With my Shunshin, I found out that the thing that was left behind (leaves, lightning, fire, etc.) was either a Genjutsu (Illusion) or elemental manipulation, though I haven't tried either, since I didn't know how Genjutsu worked and would rather have it taught to me or learn it.

When I found out that I could change how my skills were set out, I decided to get rid of all of the passive/active things since they don't really matter. Now, to see a skill, I go into the list and select the one I want to view, which would give me a more in depth view of the skill, which made the screen so much clearer and easier to use. For example: 'Skill: Shunshin'.

Body Flicker Technique (Shunshin): Lvl 11 (42%):

Allows the user to use super speed; is usually confused with teleportation.

CP/Km: 90

I had gotten the chakra cost so low, even without my chakra control. With the chakra control, I managed to max out the Leaf Exercise, the Tree Walking exercise and I'd started on the Water Walking one too.

Leaf Exercise: Lvl MAX

Tree Walking: Lvl MAX

Water Walking: Lvl 3 (42%)

The control exercises maxed out at level 20 and gave you 1% of control for every level, meaning I gained 43% more control of my full chakra, bringing it up to 63% which was good for now. I hadn't touched the wind exercise yet. I intend to do that when I get the Kage Bunshin, or shadow clone. While I knew the seal for the Kage Bunshin, I didn't know how much chakra it took. While I would take a look at Naruto's chakra levels (which were about 3 times of my own), I didn't know if he had Uzumaki chakra levels yet. What if they only appeared as he grew up? Anyway, here are my stats.

I decided to put 10 points into VIT, 8 points into DEX, and the rest into LUC. While originally I wasn't going to focus too much on luck, a lucky shinobi would easily be able to take on any other shinobi, and the fact that the other ones are so easy to grind when I have the chance are good too. The only way to get points in LUC, is to get lucky. This, of course, means that eventually you'll be stuck in a loop of getting more lucky exponentially.

With the perk points, from what I remember from some fan-fictions I read (sad), they gave you special things, like the Mangekyo Sharingan and some other things. I decided that I was going to see what they do when I start the academy, as a gift to myself of sorts. Due to this, I haven't looked at the perk point screen which I assume you open by saying perk.

We arrived at the Hokage Tower and walked to the lady at the desk who was different from the one I saw 2 years ago. About half a year ago, she was replaced with this nicer lady who smiled at me and Naruto, "The Hokage will see you.".

"Hey Subaru-Nii, why do you think Jiji wants to see us?", Naruto asked as he walked to the door.

After the night where we started to live together, we decided that I would be the older brother since I was more responsible. That really helped my ego.

"Probably something to do with the academy, Ototo.", I replied as we stepped into the boundaries of the room.

In the room, there were 4 ANBU (told to me by my sensor ability) and the Hokage, though of course we couldn't actually see the ANBU. The Hokage was sat at his desk, with a small stack of paperwork at the side of the desk and several mountains of paperwork taller than Jiji stacked around the room. Seriously, without shadow clones, how does the Hokage get through all of this work? There was also a computer opposite the small stack of paperwork on the desk.

When Jiji saw us, he looked up from his paperwork and smiled at us, "Hello Naruto-Kun, Subaru-Kun, how are you today?"

"Good/Fine.", we both replied in a short manner, before sitting down at two chairs that were on our side of the desk.

"Now, since you're here, we can start.", the Sandaime said, "First of all, you are both going to be studying under Iruka Umino in room 211 at the academy. You know where the academy is, right?"

We both nodded our head with Naruto saying, "It's two streets down from the ramen stand on the far end."

The Hokage chuckled at how Naruto remembered where the academy was.

"You will start on this coming Monday. The academy lasts from 9 till 3.", the Hokage continued, "Now, Subaru-Kun. As you do not have a clan name, you have the choice of what it will be. Would you like your name to be Subaru no Konoha or would you like it to be Subaru Uzumaki, like Naruto-Kun."

Subaru Uzumaki: +500 Rep with all Uzumakis. 5x Experience in Fuinjutsu. Allows use of Adamantine Sealing Chains. Potent Chakra (x10 Chakra). Extreme Healing Rate (x10 Health)

Subaru no Konoha: +1000 Rep with all members of Konohagakure. -1000 Rep with all members of Iwagakure. Affinity to Fire.

[Confirm]

Well that's new. I looked at the Hokage and Naruto, who both seemed to be frozen. Out of the window, the cloud were unmoving and there was a bird in mid-flight stopped. Even without those signs, it was obvious that time was frozen. The atmosphere felt different, if that made sense. It was colder.

[Welcome, Gamer. To find out more, please use the command 'Reputation']

I did as the game said and a new screen popped up.

Reputation is how people react, talk and think about you. This could influence business deals, relationships and whether or not someone attacks you. Relationships work in points and can be earned or lost through missions, actions, time and, in this case, names. Here is how Reputation Points (Rep Points) work:

Exalted: 10,000 and above

Honoured: 5,000 to 10,000

Liked: 1,000 to 5,000
Neutral: -1,000 to 1,000
Disliked: -1,000 to -5,000
Hostile: -5,000 to -10,000
Hated: -10,000 and below

Here are your current Rep Points:

Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze: 12,000
Hiruzen Sarutobi: 9,500
Ichiraku Family: 7,000
Other: 0
General Konoha: -4,000
Nono Yakushi: -6,000

More people will gain opinions of you once you are more well known.

Well that made sense. Nono Yakushi was the old matron at the orphanage who I blackmailed when she told me to hate Naruto. General Konoha don't serve me most of the time, but they don't try to kill me like they do with Naruto. With Naruto, the General Konoha part will probably be worse.

Now, with the names. I don't think Subaru no Konoha would be worth it. While I'd get the fire affinity, I'm much more interested in Fuinjutsu and the Sealing Chains, and even with the 1,000 Rep Score boost, Konoha will still dislike me, only this time, people in Iwa will hate (well, dislike), me more than they already do, for me being in Konoha. Also, the potent chakra. That would be amazing. I would be able to do so much more. The health's a great benefit too.

I chose Subaru Uzumaki then clicked [Confirm], unfreezing time, "I'd like to be Subaru Uzumaki. Besides, I'm already Naruto's Nii-San, so what's the difference?"

Naruto smiled at me and I ruffled his hair, smiling back.

The Hokage continued, "Very well then. From this day forth, you are now Subaru Uzumaki.", he passed me an envelope which I knew contained our stipend, "Here is your stipend for the fortnight. You may leave now."

While I stood up, I thought 'Menu' in my head to see my chakra levels.

Yes. It was a direct multiplication, so it was unaffected by anything else. How does health, chakra and regen work anyway?

[For discovering a feature, +1 INT]

[The Help command allows you to gain information on anything within the game, from your titles to perk points to calculations. Say 'Help' + What you want to know.]

That was simple. 'Help: Calculations':

Calculations are worked out in a simple way:

Health – (VIT * 10) * (1.5 ^ Levels – 1). Rounded to the nearest 5.

Health Regeneration – HP/30. Rounded to the nearest 50

Chakra – (VIT + STR) * 4.5) * (1.5 ^ (Levels – 1). Rounded to the nearest 5

Chakra Regeneration – CP/50. Rounded to the nearest 50

With the 'Uzumaki' perk, the end results of HP and CP are multiplied by 10, the healing rate is multiplied by ten, and the chakra regeneration rate is recalculated.

Well that was simple enough, but a part of that has me wondering: 'Uzumaki' perk? If it means what I think it means, then perk points are what I thought they were. Now, I'm even more excited for Monday, when I'll open the perk points menu to give myself a gift. Since I get one every 5 levels or get one every birthday, by the end of the academy, I should have at least 5, and that's if I never level up. I don't know how expensive the perks are but if they are something like 1 or 2 points per perk, then I'll be god damn OP by the time I graduate. If it took me a year and a half to level up 4 times without any actual help or fighting, then how long would it take me to level up in the Academy, or as a Genin.

It had been 3 days since me and Naruto had met the Hokage. I've been getting increasingly giddy and excited at the thought of today. I was going to open the perk menu. I woke up to see the sun rising through the blinds, and Naruto surprisingly awake and in the kitchen, making us scrambled eggs. Another thing was my birthday. The

"Hey Naruto!", I said after getting up for the day.

"Hey, Subaru-Nii.", he replied.

"I'm surprised to see you up this early.", I said, going to the table to sit down.

While Naruto had certainly gotten better, he usually still woke up later than me, since I normally woke up early or just before him.

"I'm just excited for the academy, dattebayo! We'll be kick ass ninjas in no time!"

That was another thing. Aside from when he was eating ramen, the only other time he reverted, mostly, to his original self was when he was talking to me.

"Yeah, me too.", I replied, "Imagine all of the friends we'll make there too."

At this, Naruto deflated. Like in the normal show, before he started the academy, parents would drag their children away from Naruto whenever he went to play with them. Now that I was in the picture, Naruto had me for a friend, but obviously that wasn't enough. The parents seemed to resent me too, but not to the level of Naruto, and I overheard one of them telling their kids not to listen to me, even if they are playing with me, since I have the wrong mindset. They probably have no problem with me except for the fact that I think Naruto is normal.

"But those kids are always mean to me.", he responded, "They never let me play with them."

"Yeah, but it's not just going to be them kids. The kids that won't play with us are all civilian kids, but in the academy, there'll be clan kids as well. Most of them should be nice."

"Yeah, 'ttebayo!"

He lightened up at this.

"What about the teacher, Iruka something, what if he doesn't like us?", Naruto asked.

"Well Hokage-jiji said that he got a teacher that'll like us, but if Iruka-Sensei doesn't like us, Jiji said to tell him.", I stated, to which Naruto brightened up.

At about half past eight, we set off for the academy. Since it takes us about a quarter of an hour to get to Ichiraku Ramen when we walk, we should be at the academy at least 5 minutes early, allowing us to settle in nicely. As we walked, I could see parents with their children whispering about us, probably having figured out that we were going to the academy. We were used to this, so we just ignored it.

Once we were there, we walked into the academy, ignoring the looks we were getting from some of the teachers, until we eventually reached our room, 211. When we walked in, most of the people went quiet, at least on the civilian side. The room was basically split in two, with civilians sitting nearer to the front and the clan kids sitting nearer to the back. While the civilian kids started whispering, the clan kids simply didn't care and kept talking.

I sat at the back, a few seats away from Shikamaru and Choji, knowing that they wouldn't judge us. Naruto sat beside me, in the place about Kiba. I decided to look at all of their stats to see how I compared to them. I looked at Shikamaru first, using a variation of Observe that I made using the command tool. 'Observe: Main':

Name: Shikamaru Nara

Gender: Male

Age: 7

Title/Status: Lazy Genius

Level: 14 (Next Level 32%)

HP: 66170/66170 (Regeneration: 2200/minute)

CP: 69185/69185 (Regeneration: 1350/minute)

STR: 45

VIT: 34

DEX: 48

INT: 213

LUC: 7

Allegiance: Konohagakure

That all made sense. Shikamaru was a genius so his INT should be really high and since he barely worked out or did exercise, his STR and VIT should be low. Since he is always unlucky with the time he wakes up, his LUC stat should be low. However, it seems that his level is higher than me, which is interesting. It is probably a mix of me using stat points, the game and me being able to get tons of points through playing and training. Next was Choji.

Name: Choji Akimichi

Gender: Male

Age: 7

Title/Status: Fatso

Level: 13 (Next Level 58%)

HP: 89520/89520 (Regeneration: 2950/minute)

CP: 85825/85825 (Regeneration: 1700/minute)

STR: 78

VIT: 69

DEX: 32

INT: 43

LUC: 19

Allegiance: Konohagakure

That, too, made sense. Since Choji was in the Akimichi clan, his techniques need him to be strong and not too fast. I don't know how much 43 INT is, but it is probably average. Now, for Kiba. Since Kiba was supposedly good at Taijutsu, he should be a better choice to observe since his stats are likely higher.

Name: Kiba Inuzaka

Gender: Male

Age: 7

Title/Status: Mutt-Boy

Level: 16 (Next Level 13%)

HP: 367830/367830 (Regeneration: 12250/minute)

CP: 319220/319220 (Regeneration: 6350/minute)

STR: 78

VIT: 84

DEX: 113

INT: 28

LUC: 18

Allegiance: Konohagakure

Woah. Kiba was really ahead of Shikamaru and Choji, but his INT was so low. Though, that shouldn't mean anything. Unlike them, I have no combat experience at all, so even though I have mad stats, I would probably lose unless I dodge a lot and hit a lot, which is inefficient.

"Hi, I'm Subaru Uzumaki and this is my brother Naruto, who are you guys?", I said, asking Shikamaru, Choji and Kiba. They all turned to me.

"I'm Kiba Inuzaka, and I'm the top dog 'round here, got that?", Kiba said.

"Troublesome. I'm Shikamaru. Now let me go to sleep."

"Hi! I'm Choji, want a chip?", Choji asked. Naruto accepted while I declined.

While Naruto struck up a conversation with them, I decided that it was finally time to look at the perks. 'Perk Menu'. The people around me froze and the temperature dropped. Good, at least I won't get disturbed.

Welcome to the perk menu. Here you can draw perks from a wheel of perks, costing one perk point for each spin. Here you can get everything from +50 stat points and Ryo, to skill scrolls and Kekkei Genkai. What you draw depends on LUC, which coincidentally can be gotten through +10 LUC scrolls. To spin, please say: 'Perk: Spin:' followed by the number of times you wish to draw perks. To view your current perks, please just bring up the 'Perk' menu. You can now Observe other people's perks.

Hmm... While I expected the Kekkei Genkai, I didn't expect the other things, and I definitely didn't expect the drawing system. Though, the +50 stat points would be amazing. I decided to spin it once. 'Perk: Spin: 1'. A wheel appeared in front of me and started spinning, though the names at all of the partitions were constantly changing while they were spinning, probably to make it easier to read. After about 10 seconds, the wheel slowed to a stop.

[Congratulations on getting a +50% control scroll (Rank: Mythic). +2 LUC]

Wait. A +50% control scroll? Is that for things like my affinity control? 'Help: +50% Control Scroll':

Item Name: +50% Control Scroll

Rank: Mythic

Effects: Allows an instant passage of +50% chakra control on any chakra type. This includes regular chakra, affinities, elemental chakra that you have not unlocked, ying-yang chakra and Kekkei Genkai chakra.

Variations: +10% CS, +25% CS, +50% CS, +75, +100

Woah. That's actually really useful. I thought the game was going to fuck me up on the drawing system. The +100% CS is probably a Legendary item. I could use that to give me Ying-Yang release, making me OP. Should I use it on Wind, or something else though? Using it on wind would increase my control significantly, but doing it on something else would unlock me something else.

Meh. I'll think of it later.

"Hello, my name is Iruka Umino and I will be your sensei for the next few years."

Hello everyone, and welcome to the third chapter. Tell me what you think. If you think I should change the chakra or explain something better, please review or PM me. With the system for the perk points, I didn't want it to be just a buying system, since that would be too OP in a lot of situations, so I settled to having a wheel that draws it.

The calculations given for the health, chakra and associates are what I actually use, since I needed to standardise it.
