First: EPIC LOL
Alright, now that I got that off my chest.....
As I was meditating on the partnership of Shikamaru and Choji, I compared them to many classic duos (such as Indiana Jones and his allies, and Han Solo and Chewbacca) and eventually Robin Hood and Little John came up. It was then I realized that the rest of the slacker gang (Naruto, Kiba and Akamaru) would make a very good band of Merry Men. That's how I started the picture, then I worked Temari in as Maid Marian, then Jiraiya as Friar Tuck. And I threw Hinata in, as I am a NaurHina fan. This is all the foundation for a crazy fanfic I'm writing.
Why did I make Kiba and Akamaru Scots? First, because I think it makes sense and second, because I can work in Okuri as a William Wallace figure.
Why did I make Hinata, Naruto and Jiraiya Irish? Mostly for my own amusement, and to make Jiraiya a leprechaun. Hinata has the stereotypical Irish skin and hair, and I need to make Naruto the heir to the throne of somewhere.
Also, Hidan (AKA Sheriff of Konoham) is going to have a thick French accent....for no reason other than my own amusement.
