Good afternoon, everyone!

Welcome to the Weekly Quiz, a series of polls and quizzes meant to drive community engagement, share a little bit about our characters, and generally get us thinking about them in ways that we haven't before.

Today we will be discussing advice. What advice would your character give to their former self, from when they were brand new? What do they imagine their future self would be like?

Answer and explain your choices to us in the comments below! Anyone who does such may claim 50 Character Points for each character they answer for.

Hail and Well Met,

Austin

"Seek out the Kazekage, and see if he'll teach you. If you cannot find a sensei, make sure you stay training anyways. Try and seek out Arid, Ty Lee, and Kanbe earlier, see if you can build the colony earlier. Seduce Shingen, if you can, though we have the feminine wiles of a particularly poorly domesticated house cat. Maybe try and turn them against him, if you do find him. It will save them heartbreak."

Arid would definitely tell her former self to train harder, and not get so attached to Shingen.

Past Arid thinks that she'll grow up to look more or less the same, but way stronger.

---

Jubei would tell his former self to maybe not be a hero during the battle of Kemuri. Also, go hang out with Mizui and Shouko more.

Past Jubei thinks his future self is the coolest dude on the planet tbh. He looks like a flamboyant samurai man with cute makeup and pretty clothes and a cute parasol and-- hey wait he's already kinda there

---

Shizuka wouldn't tell himself anything because he understands that time paradoxes are a real thing that will happen.

Past Shizuka thinks he grows up to become passably stronger, but doesn't necessarily think he's gonna be something impressive or anything.

---

Nahyuta would tell himself to continue following his path to enlightenment. To change his momentum would be against the Holy Mother's plan for him.

Past Nahyuta does not worry about the future, because the present is what is most important to him.

Shouko would tell her past self that it's okay to take chances, to put yourself out there and try. Sometimes trying is more important than anything that follows. Also to check out Ryoka way earlier so they'd have time together before the war started. Also to pick up archery sooner, she has a real knack for it. The future is unclear but Shouko is optimistic about who she will become.

Tsume would tell herself to slow down, just a little. Every day is a miracle but sometimes she moved too fast to really enjoy that. Small steps are what matters, not how fast you make those steps. It's okay to fall a little behind, you don't always have to be first or the strongest. Also think before you act a little more, but her present self is still learning that herself. Tsume's determined to become the best weapon user of her generation, and possibly many more. Her future is set on that one goal.

Yumi and Yume would tell each other that they look cute probably, maybe get out more. Future twins just hope to get on a team and get stronger, each for their own reasons.

Kioko would tell herself that, despite everything, they were doing it. They weren't the strongest Genin in the village and they certainly weren't making waves among shinobi, but they were doing their part. They had won a spar, finished a mission, and even helped to save the Kazekage! The future doesn't look like it will hold a ton of fame or praise, but it will hold people who she has helped. That's why she became a shinobi to begin with.

Saya would tell herself to be more open with Maia, to be less attentive to Seto, and to keep a closer eye on Rei Uchiha. She doesn't regret any of her past decisions and would easily make them again. All in all her path has been one she's mostly content with. Her future is blurry currently. The change of Hokage, the attacks on the village, the war. It all makes it difficult to determine what comes next.

Haruko would tell herself to stop pretending. People won't judge her just for being a samurai, they won't look at her strangely because of her grace. Kumogakure is a home worth defending, filled with people who would openly accept her. Also to get used to never having alone time. Her future is one likely steeped in warfare but it is her duty to follow the Raikage's orders.

Ty Lee would tell herself so, so many things. It's uncertain if she would say to avoid becoming a Jashinist. It's been a point of contention and conflict in her life, but it's safety, it's home. Even when she's alone she has that. She would tell her to be more understanding of Kanbe and his hesitance toward the religion. She would tell her that heartbreak is coming and when it comes things will get harder than she could imagine. She would also tell her that it was worth the memories and to hold on to them as tightly as she could. She shouldn't dwell on the hurt or the pain, but remember the times that made losing people she cared about hurt in the first place. She has a long, long time to hurt, but only a short time to love those around her. Never waste a moment, never take a single breath they take for granted. They only have their lifetime, do everything you can to make it a great one for them. The future is something she never really thinks about in a positive light. Instead she'd rather think of now.

Future Anna would tell flay to stop waiting to spar with haruko and go lion hunting with Hayate, because shayne got addicted to ascension.

Future Flay would tell Anna not to go pillaging Slyther's garden to no avail.

Future Rose would tell past rose to be more assertive and hopefully that would stop the twins from being so rude to the raikage.

Future Isobu would warn past isobu that they haven't gone back to the island like they should and to be more aggressive about returning.

Future Sulphur and past Sulphur would shoot the shit in the sun.

missed the imagine the future self bit.
Anna doesn't have a clear a idea of what her future self would be like, instead choosing to imagine herself in various positions of power like that of a doctor, idol, raikage, or the top of the most wanted board.

Flay imagines his future self is strong, confident, and doesn't stutter.

Isobu imagines his future self as free at the bottom of the ocean far away from everyone, because they keep shoving him in people.

Rose doesn't want to imagine getting old as it sounds terrible to her.

Sulphur's already old, so he doesn't imagine there will be much change,
"maybe I will be nicer in my old age" he comments before bursting out laughing in a, "Bwhaahahaha" fashion.

Past Aeliza would scold future Aeliza for being lax in her training, believing the two should have learned more about ninjutsu in this time.
In turn Future Aeliza would have shared Katsumasa's training method with her, so that she could have a stronger start when learning.

What advice would your character give to their former self, from when they were brand new?
Kensho would have told himself to start saving cats earlier in his career. He is a relatively new character so this one is a bit tough.

What do they imagine their future self would be like?
At this point, he sees his future self as a reclusive yet powerful hermit who defends Konoha as needed and helps train the next generation of shinobi.

Not being incredibly insightful, and without having anything major that he regrets, Kazu wouldn't have anything incredibly deep to advise his younger self. He would probably tell himself to start seriously training earlier in his career-- he felt a bit inferior throughout the Chuunin Exams and the battle at Kemurigakure's Gates, so he would want to be more prepared for those. Beyond that, he'd probably tell himself to try to get closer to Maia earlier and watch Kanari during the war to preemptively stop him from disappearing.

Kanbe would probably tell himself to not be blinded by his own self-righteousness, to try to be more understanding of Ty Lee's situation so that he could better help her. He'd tell himself to listen to Shingen more from the beginning and take his words to heart, and to not resist his whole team as much as he initially did. In later years, he's realized how much they mean to him (even if he still doesn't agree with everything they do), and would want his younger self to learn that sooner.

Tane would tell herself to treasure the time that she had left with Saizo, and to not let him attend the Chuunin Exams. As well, she'd tell herself not to leave his side around that time in hopes of being able to protect him. To that end, she'd have told herself to make sure that Tane, Rumi, and Saizo all doubled-down on training in order to ensure that they all made it out of there alive.

Rumi would tell her past self to ease up on Saizo, in order to give Tane a few more happy memories of the three of them living together in harmony. His death was something she didn't expect, and the attitude she took with him publicly in his life is one she isn't proud of. Rumi would also warn herself of the impending Konohagakure/Sunagakure attack, urging her younger self to prepare themselves and everyone else for the storm that was coming in hopes of better defending themselves from it.

Shiko would want to tell himself to never give up hope. That all the hard times would eventually be accompanied with a light at the end of the tunnel. He would tell his younger self to keep working hard, and to maybe work EVEN harder. You can do anything you set your mind too, and anything you let your heart want. People can sneer and laugh at you all you want, but it's important to hold your head high and to work through it. Because those people aren't worth your attention in life.

He'd also tell himself to you know... learn to keep a cool head... For... ***Reasons***.

I think Ritsuki would tell her former self to take a break and take it easy, that protecting and being there for those around her should not always be the most important and that she doesn't need to look for other's approval in what she does. While at the same time, her former self would tell her to get stronger. To focus on being able to protect people with strength over what she can do.

Kisora would tell her former self to NOT PICK UP THAT FUCKING STONE, I DON'T KNOW WHY SHE WOULD. Her former self would tell her to visit Hansho more. . .Make more time for him and go see him more, and drink less! Despite her absolute love of sake.

Asuka would tell her former self to NOT GO ON THAT MISSION. While Asuka's former self would tell her to make more friends, go out more. . .the complete opposite of what she did.

Mimorisa would tell her former self to get stronger. . .maybe drink some more milk and be tall enough to be able to reach the top shelf. While her former self would tell her to make more weapons so she could have more!

Satomi would tell her former self to invest more in attacks that can't hurt others or work with something like Ijutsu in order to heal and protect her village. While her former self would tell her to keep up the good work.

Ryoka would tell herself about all the suffering she could probably easily avoid, namely the people that she should avoid and the people she should stick closer to.

Kyuuban would tell himself to not take a break so he would still be an anbu. grr

Maia would tell herself to spend less time worrying about some people (coughreicough) and more time focusing on the people who care about her.

Yui would not partake in this, suffering makes you a better person and you need to figure out the course on your own.

Sayaka is pretty new! So she hasn't had a chance to learn a lot. But maybe she would tell herself that sparing with Uru would lead to a pain so don't do it! She sees herself making friends with some samurai and learning cool techniques and also attacking konoha a lot!

Kara is even newer! But she would tell her younger self to learn sensory to avoid the dirty tricks. She sees herself developing her vajra chain style to become the best chain using uzumaki ever!

He'd warn himself about the dangers of registering without breaking out of his origin from the start, since that apparently alleviates the 1000cp cost!

Kanari would have liked to find his future self to be a symbol of strength and justice in the world. One that fought for peace when necessary, but cultivated a world where his people were not in jeopardy.

Current Kanari would probably have suggested a more levelheaded approach to the war, maybe even including Ryoka in on his plans to uproot what he believed to be a dangerous national power without bloodshed. The current war could have been ended that day at Kemurigakure if she, at the very least, didn't interfere.
