Nature or nurture [Dual Contract search]

A deep ravine ending in a waterfall on the north eastern border of the Fire Country, the Valley of the End was the sight of a battle fought in times past. It has since become an iconic fated duel location despite the historical context that it carries. Two statues dedicated to shinobi hundreds of years past stand on opposite sides of the ending waterfall but the faces cannot be clearly made out.

Nature or nurture [Dual Contract search]

Wed Jun 12, 2019 8:59 pm

Nagisa actually had time for a break. Yes it was odd, her being Sennin and having free time but she decided that she needed the time off. She decided to go to her favorite space outside of Leaf at the bottom of the waterfall just outside of Leaf. It was here where she felt at one with nature. It was a calm place. The small roar of the waterfall, the sounds of birds chirping. It was a beautiful day, sunshine and a small rainbow from the mist of the waterfall.

Nagisa was wearing her blue monk attire but was without her sennin robe or jacket. She didn't feel the need to cover the evidence of her bond with Shizue. As she relaxed, she found that her form naturally turned into the water form of her liquid state. It felt right.

'It feels nice to be free or as free as I can be.' Shizue said to her.

'I know. I wish I could give you a body of your own.'

'No. I think we are good for each other. We both have had to deal with a lot and I think we mesh well together.'

'I agree but what I did I did out of desperation. I could not let you be sealed away to be sold to the highest bidder.'

'Just as i could not stand to see you sacrificed to settled a blood feud.'

Nagisa would half smile as she relaxed into a stance and began to move water around her, in tai chi type movements. Water would flow between her hands, occasionally when she held her hands together it would form a ball of water. She would then stretch it back out into a line of water and would occasionally splash it out over the small lake. She would then grab more water and continue the same ebb and flow. It was peaceful and calm. Truly, she could feel the stress melt from her body as surely as if it was truly water. She felt better. She was Sennin she had a couple of new recruits for her branch, and things seemed calm, at least for now.

It was rare the man left the village these days only tending to do so if there was official business to take care of or if he had training in mind that could cause damage to the area he was in, this time was neither instead just taking a moment to see how the areas outside the village had developed in recent years. He didn't mind leaving the branch to his captains they had gained that rank for a reason and in his mind he could leave the branch to them in the short absence walking through the trees his movements quiet not on purpose but more so out of habit as his eyes came to rest on the Sennin.

"Well i wasn't expecting anyone else to be out here never-mind training." He was as blunt as ever about announcing his presence Chinatsu rising to the man's side shaking his head. "You see Yukio she may have been focused and in the same old manner you always have you have broken this sense of calm and tranquility when will you learn." The man gave a quick look to his companion wondering what he was talking about finding it to only be proper to announce yourself when meeting someone.

Taking note of what the Sennin was doing and the state she was in it became somewhat obvious what she was doing giving a slow nod in approval. "Working on the skills you have already, makes sense it's what I used to do way back when though now I prefer broadening my horizons seeing what I can add to my fighting style to add a greater sense of depth to it though it seems these days i am running out of ways to do so save for advanced elements i am yet to discover." He didn't mind being honest with Nagisa though even in that moment his mind was still ticking wondering what to do next given the state he found himself in on a semi regular basis.

Chinatsu seemed to sigh turning to face the Med Nin with an apologetic expression. "Apologies it's basically all he thinks about these days even during our scarce time off, in not so many words we don't actually have free time thanks to this combat obsessed man." Yukio was too lost in thought to acknowledge what his companion was saying observing Nagisa wondering if there was anything he would be able to use at some point in the near future. "Safe to say i blame his emotional state, Or rather his lack of such things, he probably has nothing better to do these days."

Though the man would probably have something to say about that he remained silent though even then the being wasn't exactly wrong, and arguing the point would only lead to a prolonged discussion the Uchiha could not find the effort to commit to at that very moment in time finally snapping out of his state turning to the two of them. "Apologies were you saying something?"

While practicing her movements, a certain ANBU sennin surprised her ever so slightly, still, she continued the movements as he and Chinatsu talked. It seemed Yukio was commenting on trying to find something new.

'I have seen more personable plants.' Shizue said in her head.

'Be nice. He is a competent Sennin from my experience.'

'Mayhaps but his bedside manner is that of an academy student.'

Nagisa made a noncommittal grunt as she finish her series of stances and let the water fall back into the lake portion of the waterfall.

"It is not so much training as it is relaxation. I have always found the water a great place to relax and this display is nothing extraneous for me. It is more of a warm up."

Nagisa's blue eyes would look at Yukio carefully.

"Yes the elements we can control is very strong. I go through my own stances for the other elements I can control but I find that water has many forms for me to use. It is a simple thing, really, once you get the feel for it."

Nagisa would wave a hand, and around them a thick fog would form so they could just see each other. With a smile, she would wave it away with one hand as a giant snowflake appeared on her arm. The cold from it made her breathe vaporize the instant it hit the air. In a fluid movement, she would slam the ground, the snowflake shattering only for a large piece of amber would latch onto her hand. The amber beacon began to sizzle as the amber was being melted away by a glob of dark purple acid that fell from her hand into the water and hissed. As the acid fell, a whip made of blood appeared into her hand. In a moment, she cracked it above the lake and the blood would disappear in a burst, the blood not even reaching the small lake below.

"The elements are to be respected of course. With a single misstep they can spiral out of control. I have to keep an eye on my own abilities for how quickly can a light rain turn into a hurricane. Although I think your destructive powers far eclipse my own. Still, I was able to fight against a potential missing ninja with the help of others. It helped me recover my own worries of my strength quite well and I believe you did well against some ninja on your own." Nagisa would say.

"Although I do think we can both get stronger. The raw power of the elements are my forte as you know. I just feel like there is something... else out there. Sometimes it seems like the elements are alive in their own form. Some mistake me for a being of water but truth be told I kind of am especially with Shizue. Still, it is something to think about."
