"Try using the Replacement technique on me. I have an idea."

While Keike began performing the hand signs for the Kawarimi no Jutsu, Keiko had decided to take out a kunai and lob it into the air at her clone. A moment later, she felt the tugging sensation and changed places with Keike. The girl looked up into the air seeing her own thrown kunai coming down towards her. Hmm..

She repositioned herself so that she would be able to catch the kunai. A second later, Keiko did so and placed it back into its pouch with the rest of the kunai. Her clones were able to do Kawarimi no Jutsu. This could set up some very nice tactics should the need arise and she needed to get away.

"Okay, now let's practice sparring. I need to train you and the others to be better!"

With that said, they began their five minute long session of hand-to-hand combat and the usage of some jutsu.

Strike after strike, Keiko unleashed attacks upon specific body points meant to disable a person. Her clone skillfully blocked or dodged them all without a sweat, laughing while doing so. This was having the opposite effect on Keiko, making her more frustrated and less aware of her attacks. Gradually, the strikes became less accurate and more anger-fueled, focusing on dealing more damage to the whole body. This weakness Keiko showed gave Keike the advantage needed to attack back.

When the original did a sideswipe with her leg to try to knock the clone off the balance, Keike jumped up and kicked Keiko square in the chest. She was sent flying backward a couple of meters with a look of surprise on her face.

"Oh!" The original snapped out of her small delusion of anger and returned back to normal self. Realizing what she did, Keiko blinked and smiled at Keike. She apologized and her clone waved it off, saying that it was completely alright. She said so with a smile and a small laugh, but made a handseal soon after and disappeared.

Break time. Keiko of the Kaguya worked up a sweat with the spars with her own clones. Even if she toned herself down a bit, it was surprising to see that Keike was able to one-up her in their last spar. She walked over to her spot and sat down in front of her pack, pulling out the next victim to her stomach. A slightly altered personal creation of hers, she took small, hard, crusty, thin breadsticks and dipped each one into flavors of her own choice. Chocolate, Vanilla, Green Tea, and Strawberry. She had about 16 pieces in total and took one of the strawberries out first.

The soft, creamy exterior of the strawberry Poki, or so she deemed to call it, with the hard, crunchy stick provided a blissful contradiction that blended well together. While eating her light snack, Keiko thought about what she wanted out of her clones. Strength, brains, and endurance. Out of these, the easiest to train was strength and endurance with physical sparring. The brains would probably mean that she needed to impart more chakra into her clones with her conscious. Giving more of her mind rather than chakra was going to be an interesting feat to achieve, but Keiko was going to try her best at doing so.

She took out a chocolate poki and began biting it methodically while heading back out to the training grounds. There were several students now in the Academy, some of them in the training grounds to practice their own techniques. The girl didn't mind them. She just kept to herself and began her third leg of her training.

Keiko formed several handseals in succession, focusing on creating multiple clones compared to simply just one. Out came four of her favorite clones: Keika, Keiki, Keiku, and Keike. Keiko made number 5. A total of five, almost identical, look-alikes appeared in a cloud of smoke. She made them look a tad bit different from each other so that she could easily distinguish them from each other.

Keika had a black armband attached to her left upper arm that read 'Maid'. Keiki had a similar armband that read 'Tsundere' in the color orange. She obviously did not like it and almost immediately requested to change it to 'Queen'. Keike's armband was pink just like her personality: bubbly. Keike tended to laugh and be free-spirited and the original felt almost jealous of that. The last one that she hadn't made today was Keiku. All she had was a red-colored armband with no words on it, yet.

Keiko did not know what type she was and decided to figure that out very soon.

"Hey everyone~! Nice of all of you to join me!" - Keiko

"It's a pleasure to be here, milady." - Keika
"It's not like I had a choice did I? Hmph!" - Keiki
"It's always good to be here, teehee!" - Keike
"..." - Keiku

"Keiku? Why aren't you talking?"

"... Mm."
"I think she can't open her mouth!"
"More like she refuses to talk, hmph!"
"..."

"Hmm.. okay."

Smiling, Keiko formed a seal with her hand and concentrated on Keiku's armband, etching onto it the word 'Stoic' onto it.

"Because you are taciturn."
"Hahahaa!!" Keike pointed her finger to the armband.

Without much time until evening begins to come, Keiko and her squad of vowels began to do their training.

The five Ks had gathered in a large pentagon-shaped circle all facing each other. Their purpose for today was training their bodies. After they got hit two times, they would have to raise their hands and say 'Out'. This was so that they could proceed onto the next lesson which was more practical in comparison as it utilizes their chakra.

Keika the maid and Keiki the queen faced off against each other, the latter trying in earnest to win while the maid settled on defending. Keiko the original would face off against the newest member of her team, Keiku, while the laughable Keike would join the Stoic's side in fighting against the original one. It was a one versus two situation for the Kaguya girl, and she would gladly accept said challenge. She had to stay calm and collected lest she lose control and lose the spar as well.

The taciturn Keiku dashed forward and aimed at her chakra points with methodical accuracy. Surprised at the sudden intensity, Keiko back pedaled furiously while her clone pushed forwards with her attacks. Keike joined in every once in a while adding random strikes to random places at random times, which made trying to capture the pace for both Keike and Keiku difficult.

A few meters away, the queen was fighting against the maid. It seemed more like a mother daughter relationship here because of the way Keika 'taught' the queen. As if she was guiding her to attack 'open' spots and counter attacking every once in a while, it was a training session solely for Keiki's benefit. She would spout a 'Hyah!' and a 'Hoo!' every once in a while when she felt like she was about to his the maid, but Keika would always block or dodge the attacks.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Keiku's meticulous way of attacking her chakra points, or tenketsu for short, really brought on a smile on Keiko's face. Each of her clones had some part of Keiko's personalities within them. Keiku was the focused warrior that attacks without any wasted movement. The girl had to figure out a way to interrupt her clone's attack and be able to counter attack. The moment Keike came in to attack, the Kaguya girl quickly formed two seals in succession and replaced herself with a block of wood that Yamato had cut earlier. She then threw one senbon at each of her opponents in their back.

They would get 'hit' and quickly turn around to face in her direction, but they did not move forward. Instead, they took on a more defensive pose as they only had one life left before they were out of the sparring game.

Focus. Bob, weave, block. Find an opening. For a good five minutes, Keiku had reinitiated her attack sequence upon the original. So far, Keiko had not been hit yet but sooner or later one of them was bound to make a mistake and score a point against the other. Because of Keike's randomness, she had to push herself extra hard to block or dodge whatever strikes the rambunctious one threw at her. It was during one of these moments that Keiko was caught off guard and let an attack slip past her guard.

"I hit 'cha! One point for Team K-UE!"

Already feeling fatigued, she cut the sparring short and stopped the fighting then. It had seemed that Keika's and Keiki's fight ended a while back and were simply watching the three go at it.

"Next, let's try to perform jutsu. Gather in a line alongside me and..
yep, right here. Now let's perform the Flamespike technique two meters above the pond's surface and then make it change direction to go down into the water. Questions?"

Everyone else understood what to do and not a lot of chatter followed. On the count of three, all five, flipped through their handseals for the Hikasui technique and focused their fire chakra into their hands. They also had to control it mid flight which was something not normally done with jutsu of this type in general.

"Now!"

Keiko and her clones thrust their hands out forward towards the pond in the training grounds and watched as the flaming bolts of fire shot out and flew towards the lake.

"And now!"

They each then manipulated their own fireball to crash into the lake. While Keiko, Keika, and Keiku's ball went straight down into the lake, Keike decided to add a flourish to her own technique. She made it loop twice in the air before it crashed down into the pond. The girl laughed as she performed her technique. Keiki, being the queen and not wanting to be shoved aside by anyone, made hers move directly upwards towards the sky before it U-turned and spiraled down into the water. Each bolt cause a shockwave upon contact and the water splashed everywhere in every direction.

Exhausted of their chakra reserves, Keiko's clones saluted before disappearing into embers. Whatever remaining chakra they had left was sent back to Keiko and the girl sighed. She was exhausted. Feeling like she did enough for that day, she packed her bags and got ready to leave. Before that however, she took out the rest of her Poki and began munching on them to give her a short burst of energy.

"Maybe I should go get something to eat? Hmm~"

During her walk from the Academy Grounds to the Kaguya clan grounds, Keiko would stop by one of the stalls selling oden in a bowl and buy one, all the while thinking about what more she could do with her clones to make them better and more efficient.

[7] The size of a jutsu can be doubled or halved (Depending on preference) - 5 Posts - May be acquired up to twice

Total: 16 Posts


Keiko put her hands together, her fingers moving in unorthodox means to mold her chakra into the technique she wanted. The girl created a single clone after a couple of seconds and waved to it.

"Hey Keika, how are you?"

The maid bowed. "Good morning, milady. I am doing fine, thank you. And how about you?"

Keiko simply gave a thumbs up and a smile as she spoke to her clone about what they were about to do.

With the necessary knowledge now inside the mind of Keiko's clone, they both went off to face the pond inside the training grounds at the Ninja Academy. Standing side by side, they brought their hands together and made complex gang signs one after the other at the pond. Molding chakra to form around their hand was easy enough. To make it shoot out and explode upon contact was a different thing entirely. Such volatility inside their hand could prove dangerous should it set off prematurely.

Two identical fireballs were shot out of their hands and jetted itself towards the water in the distance. Upon contact with its liquid surface, the Flamespike jutsu exploded, creating an explosion almost double that of a typical exploding tag. Why was the explosive range farther? Ninja tend to dodge everything rather well here in World of Ninja, so this is meant to at least hit them with its concussive blast even if the damage would be a lot less than usual.

Satisfied with the result of her technique, Keiko turned to her 'maid' and began conversing on how they could make it perform better.

They came up with a few things. One was to lower the amount of chakra used for the technique with better chakra control. Another way was to increase its effective range in battle. If you could send it flying in a completely different direction behind your opponent then make it turn around and hit them from the back, it could work. The size of the Flamespike jutsu could also be altered to make it more effective in battle. Should someone try to detonate it prematurely, having a smaller size would definitely come in handy. If having the opponent less likely to escape is a good idea, one could increase its size to make it harder for them.

After deliberating for about twenty minutes, Keiko thanked her clone. Keika bowed and undid herself, disappearing in flaming embers. The young Kaguya girl brought her hands together once more and brought out a different clone that had more knowledge and a better mindset for what she was about to do. Keiku the taciturn warrior appeared and did not say much of anything. Figuring that would be the case, Keiko had began speaking about what she wanted to accomplish and how she could do it.

Keiku nodded and brought her hands together, creating the Hikasui technique. The clone held onto the jutsu for a slightly longer amount of time before releasing it, sending out a fireball almost twice the size of Keiko's. The clone sent it flying towards the sky and they both watched it travel really far. Her clone made a gesture with her hand and Keiko watched how the fireball did a quick U-turn and rapidly shot down towards the pond. Almost like a meteor falling from the sky, its huge size was menacing to the unknowing.

It crashed into the pond, sending water splashing everywhere. Parts of her robe got attacked by hot water and Keiko's eyes remained wide-eyed and large. To think that it could be used in such a way as well. Exhausting most of its chakra from its body, Keiku nodded towards the original and disappeared in the same manner as Keika.

Keiko herself performed the handseals for Flamespike and added more chakra into the mix. Her hand felt hot with the heat of her fire chakra forming and the girl imagined a larger fireball being made. Her arm began shaking with the mass of chakra accumulating in her before thrusting her hand towards the sky.

A giant fireball almost twice the size of her previous technique shot out of her hand and roared into the morning sky. The flaming red accentuated by the bright blue sky almost painted a picture in the girl's mind that could be a work of art should it be turned into a painting. Her jutsu was soo radiant and fiery that one could wonder if it could compare to the Uchiha's signature jutsu.

As soon as it got a good distance away, Keiko raised her hand and imagined grabbing the fireball with her hand. She forced her hand downwards and watched how her fire jutsu did a complete stop before accelerating again in the opposite direction. As it sped down, the girl brought her hands together again and repeated the same seals, creating the basic Flamespike jutsu. She shot her second one directly parallel to the ground towards the lake. Timing it so that they would collide at the same time, Keiko waited with bated breath at the result.

The moment they collided, a large shockwave rippled through the air and sent waves of air flying towards her. Unprepared for such an event, the Kaguya teenager was pushed bodily back a couple of meters, flipping in mid-air so she would be able to land safely on her feet rather than on her head.

"Hahaha.. Wow!"

The girl ran her hand through her hair to push back all the loose strands that began to cover her face. The resulting force blew air and water in every direction, creating a rather large wet spot around the pond. The water level probably lowered by half a foot, something which was a bit of an oopsie on her part.

"Let's focus more on chakra control now then.. uhhhhh, I choose you!"

Keiko flipped through the handseals for the Fire Clone technique, summoning the adorable and bubbly Keike.

"Heyo Keiko! How are ya!?"

The original nodded and smiled at her clone, hugging her while doing so. "Pretty good! Right now, I was trying to figure out how to make our Hikasui technique better. Do you have any ideas? So far, Keika and I figured out three things: chakra control, range, and size."

"Mmm.. how about.. power! Or.. ermmm.. pizaooo!"

"Pizzazz?"

"Same difference. Haha!"

Increasing her technique's power meant that she would need to mold her chakra more efficiently. Flair was not needed and would be put into the trash box in her brain. Keiko thought more about how to make her technique more flexible in its usage and thought about whether or not she should be able to use it without handseals. That could be done a later time after she completed with her original three tasks. For now, lessening the amount of chakra used for the technique would be ideal.

Keiko walked towards one of the training dummies scattered throughout the grounds and formed another Flamespike. She used quite a bit less chakra than before and tried to make do with the lesser quantity. This technique was a lot easier to compress compared to the Fire Clone. Successfully able to recreate the jutsu, she sent it flying with a smile. One task done, two more to go.

Next objective was range. Now that she was able to lessen the amount of chakra necessary for her technique, Keiko had a bit more play time with her techniques. Instead of jumping straight into the next task however, the girl decided to have her infamous break time. Oh yes. It's that time of the day again.

She quickly dashed to her small pack of goodies, humming whilst doing so. What did she bring today? Hmm.. I dunno.

The answer was Konpeito. She learned how to make this only recently and it quickly became one of her favorite candies. You take a small sugar cube and superheat it to make all the moisture evaporate. You then add more flavored liquid sugar on top of it, superheat, evaporate, and repeat the process. The sugar crystals stack and stack on top of each other until you get a star-like ball after several hours of turning and rotating. She found this recipe somewhere called the internet and was happy that she was able to recreate it.

Keiko opened a small pouch filled with several multi-colored star-shaped little candy balls and took one and popped it into her mouth. Strawberry~ It was gooooooood.

The Kaguya popped another one into her mouth after thinking about how to accomplish her task of increasing the range.

Was it just pure imagination that can enable her to increase her range? Did she need to increase her chakra in ways to widen the distance? Or just focus on how its structured to give it more range? In any case, Keiko began experimenting with her jutsu by sending wave after wave of fireballs into the pond. Each time she performed her handseals for the technique, she focused on increasing the distance she can send her Hikasui by fiddling with its fundamental workings.

The Kaguya flipped through the signs again for her Hikasui jutsu. She molded her chakra that was amassing in her hand and sent it out into the sky. A large fireball came out and roared off into the sky above. She focused her fireball to travel farther than before using the same amount of chakra. It was a task she was having a really hard time doing and the lack of motivation did not help her one bit.

Of course, she wanted to get this technique down pat and easily accessible as one of her jutsu to use whenever she needed to, but the fact that it was a powerful technique she imitated from Ninigi's jutsu during her academy days meant that it could be used to easily hurt and harm someone.

She had already managed to lower the amount of chakra needed to perform the technique. While it wasn't much, it was still a great boon for her during times when she needs to use a lot of chakra. Now there hasn't been a time when she needed to use it yet, but when missions start rolling in, it's best to be prepared.

Extending the range of her Flamespike technique shouldn't be difficult. Everything relied on chakra control and imagination. Without a spark to motivate her however, she couldn't think of ways to accomplish said task. Simply thinking about extending her range while molding her chakra didn't really seem to do much for her.

So what could she do in this sort of situation? Maybe it was best to ask her clones for help? Mainly the one that was able to do it all, Keiku? The silver-haired girl flipped through her handseals for the Fire Clone jutsu, summoning the stoic Keiku from within her.
