remember how i said that ghoul!yamamoto didnt work out? i take it back i taKE IT BAKC I TAKE IT AL LBACK
because imagine kind and gentle yamamoto who likes milk and baseball and is good with kids ripping apart humans when he loses control
and he never meant to hurt anyone because he knows the pain of losing someone precious, because its the exact same feeling he had when they took his mother away for being different, for being like him and he knows that he is not normal but more than anything he wants to fit in and have friends and be like everyone else
yet somehow, even if everyone at school likes him and he is popular and envied and seemingly perfect, they feel that something is off about him and stay away, always keep their distance and yamamoto fears so much that no one will ever accept him
because its in his nature to protect his friends and he wants to devote his life to whoever will rescue him
but in the end he doesnt have anyone and maybe he is also glad about it in a way, because his nature is also killing and slaughter and he would end up hurting ki̕l̶l͞inģ t̡́ę̛a̴ŗ͟i̷͘͜ń͢͜g̴̷ D͠E̡͝V̵́̕͘͠O̸̢U͏̕̕Ŗ͝҉̴I͟҉N̡͝Ģ them anyway
It has been 50 years since Naruto ended. Kishimoto lies on his deathbed old and weak. His loved ones are gathered around, waiting to hear his final words.
"Son… Come closer…" he whispers. His only child kneels by his fathers side. Slowly he leans in, his ear almost brushing his fathers lips.
"Naruto… Is still… A genin."
