Now as I'm sure a lot of you are aware I am a tremendous Naruto fan. A huge one. HUGE. I am an admitted Narutard of enormous proportions. I often torment a friend of mine on DA who hates Naruto by constantly engaging him in conversations about it. I'm not trying to be a jerk, I just can't help myself. While I'm on that subject if anyone ever wants to talk about the Naruto manga then I am always willing to do so. Fair warning though, I don't like Sasuke very much.

I'm getting slightly off topic here.

Anyway as I'm sure a lot of you will remember the character of Neji was initially introduced not as a friend but as an antagonist. He was a person filled with fury at the entire world because he believed deeply in the concepts of destiny, fate and predestination. He believed that only certain people were born to greatness and those who weren't we're doomed to mediocrity and that there was nothing anyone could do to change that. He was angry at what he saw was the Destiny that was laid out before him and was lashing out at the whole world. Eventually he became a friend and ally of the MC of the manga, Naruto, after the hero, A supposed no talent, no clan ninja with no destiny before him defeated him using nothing but hard work and will power. When Naruto defeated Neji he fundamentally changed his entire system of beliefs and made him believe that he could indeed forge his own destiny. After that Neji became an ally, a much better person and a fan favorite.

A nobody ninja challenging destiny and defeating Neji and by doing so opened his mind to new possibilities. It's a nice message right?

Except there's now a huge problem with it.

Years later in the manga it was revealed that Naruto DID come from a very distinguished clan, was the partial reincarnation of one of the sons of the Sage Of Six Paths AND was a child prophesied in TWO different prophecies.

So Naruto was a person with a humongous destiny laid out before them from before he was even born. He wasn't a nobody with no destiny. So doesn't this mean that the world view that bad Neji used to see the world with was in fact correct and that the lesson that turned Neji good was wrong?

This has been bugging me a lot. Neji wasn't beaten by a hardworking nobody. He was defeated with someone with a tremendous destiny laid out before them.

Read your journal about Neji, and I have to agree. That whole shtick about changing your destiny was totally invalidated...

It's things like that that have made me turn to the pilot chapter for my fics. Are you familiar with it?

Well, in light of things like what you recently brought up and other begged questions, I think people should know about its potential to be a Naruverse in its own light. To that end, I founded :iconnaruto-pilotverse:. Would you like to join?
