Secrets Of A Mafia Boss: Questions & Answers
Finally got around to write this SOAMB Q&A. Since chapter 13 wasn't really long (at least compared to past chapters) and I wanted to do something to celebrate getting past 100 reviews, I decided to make myself write this Q&A. If you haven't caught up to the fanfic, I don't suggest reading this.

Q1: Does Tsuna know Mukuro? -asked from chapter 2
A1: Yes. Mukuro's name appears in chapter 3.
Q2: Why does Tsuna have memory loss after waking up? Does he have a split personality? -asked from chapter 4
A2: I can't reveal anything yet. Maybe he does have another personality. Maybe he doesn't.
Q3: I though that rings were only found in the future? -asked from chapter 5
A3: I could be right or wrong, but from what I remember in the anime, there was a scene where they showed Hibari and Dino on the school's roof. Hibari's ring had a tiny flame and then Dino went on to explain how to increase the size of the flame. This page in the manga might bring some memories: http://www.mangatoyou.org/Katekyo_Hitman_Reborn/210/05/
Only some people knew of the flames and rings. If you read ahead in the fanfic, Tsuna found out about the flames and rings, but only knows the basics.
Q4: Can Tsuna already go into Hyper Dying Will mode? -asked from chapter 5
A4: No, not yet. He's not that advanced. Remember he is only thirteen years old and I will adjust some things about Tsuna to make remind everyone that.
Q5: How strong is Tsuna? -asked from chapter 5
A5: I try not to make him into a character that is stronger than everyone he meets. Tsuna lost against the Macchina Family hitmen and will undergo Reborn's training. You also have to consider that strength is not only physical. Intelligence also plays a role.
Q6: Are you following the manga? -asked from chapter 7
A6: I'm mostly following the manga. I'm combining the manga and anime parts and choosing which scene I like better to add into the fanfic. In other words, if I like how a scene was portrayed better in the manga, I'll use that. If I like how a scene was portrayed in the anime, I'll use that. But as you might have noticed, the story is not following the original KHR plot recently. Although you could say it is since I'm using the part in the manga where Tsuna goes to Mafia Land.
Q7: What happened to Mukuro? -asked from chapter 9
A7: Byakuran found out Mukuro was possessing a Varia servant. Then both Byakuran and Xanxus injured Mukuro.
Q8: What did Tsuna mean when he said that he will free Reborn? -asked from chapter 10
A8: This can be interpreted in different ways. Tsuna could "free" Reborn in more ways than one.
Q9: What is Tsuna planning? -asked from chapter 10
A9: That's what this fanfic is about, right? I know 90% of what will happen, but the plot gets a little complicated so I'm not completely sure what he's planning either.
Q10: Why was Mukuro hurt? -asked from chapter 10
A10: Byakuran and Xanxus unintentionally teamed up to injure Mukuro who was possessing a Varia servant. But if you're looking for how, then I'll answer that too. In case something wasn't clear, Mukuro possessed someone. In this fanfic, if the person he possessed was injured, he will have the same injury.
Q11: Will Bianchi accept the deal? -asked from chapter 10
Q12:Who attacked the Varia? -asked from chapter 10
A12: The Millefiore led by Byakuran.
Q13: Does Tsuna's deal with Bianchi have to do with his secrets? -asked from chapter 10
A13: Tsuna (well Natsu since he was Natsu at the time) thought that if Reborn knows who his comrades are, Reborn would search up their backgrounds and history and then "Natsu's" plan would be exposed soon. I remember writing that it would be a domino effect. Pretty much one of Tsuna's secrets is his secret plan.
Q14: In the end of the chapter, Natsu was talking to Bianchi, right? -asked from chapter 10
A14: Yes. Every time Tsuna's eyes hold a slight shade of orange (I described it as brown with orange in his eyes since I believe that if his eyes turned completely orange, he will be in HDWM), he becomes "Natsu".
Q15: Maybe it's just isn't Tsuna's day? -asked from chapter 11
A15: Now that I think about it, it never really is his day, especially with Reborn around.
Q16: Will Haru find out Tsuna's secret? -asked from chapter 11
A16: Tsuna knows his secret will be known. There's no stopping that from happening. Since Haru is Tsuna's friend, she'll want to know what is happening.
Q17: Where did Haru get the pepper spray? -asked from chapter 12
A17: I looked on wikipedia for information about pepper spray and watched some videos to see it's effects. Haru got the pepper spray from a local convenient store if it is legal in Japan. If it is not, I am planning on making a side story to give the answer, but I first need to research some more.
