Many of those Sandaime Hokage left behind had inherited the Will of Fire. But what happens when two of those strong resolves clash?
What is to become of the ties that bind an avenger who chooses to live in the past, and a dreamer who keeps running towards the future? Do they have no choice but to be torn apart?

I'm extremely honored to receive the first Daily Deviation for the newly implemented Cosplay Photography section. I'm a little bit embarrassed that it's this photo, as we've both improved those cosplays since then. I wish I could share this somehow with my friends, because this was a team effort. Thank you all so much for your support!
And thank you to the dA staff who gave us cosplayers our own space in this community. Cosplay is still a rather misunderstood hobby - one that is sometimes looked down upon despite it being a great creative outlet and a venue for community spirit. Hopefully over time, people will learn to appreciate it more.
On the subject of Naruto haters:
I thought it was a rather bold decision to pick something Naruto-themed for a DD, as it seems to inspire almost equal amounts of love and hate on dA. I know Naruto fans have to deal with a lot of rude comments (mostly due to members of the fandom who leave a lot to be desired) but I don't see why some individuals appear to find a sadistic pleasure in insulting absolutely anyone for liking Naruto or anything related to it. Not everyone who happens to enjoy the series fits the negative image of a "Narutard".
That aside, nobody has the right to deny the worth of someone's work just because they can't see it. Everyone is free to come up with their own opinions and disagree, but there is no need to pointlessly bring down the ones who think differently. I'm not just defending myself here - I'm speaking for everyone who has been disrespected in this manner.
To those of you who feel the need to insult me, or others like me - Really, posting spiteful comments isn't going to do anyone any good. Whining isn't going to take way the DD you feel I don't deserve - which, keep in mind, I did not ask for or bring upon myself. You're not going to change people's minds by making yourself look like a rude, popularity-crazed, bitter prick.
Before you use freedom of speech as an excuse, take note that something of equal importance is the sense of common decency. You're much better off using your time doing something that's actually constructive if you truly care about the community.
