Well, I've finally recieved word that there's a source to this strange rain after all, and it's our job to find them. Well...us and the sand-nins. Sometimes I wonder if Godaime-sama is a bit too fond of gambling, because the only logical explaination for teaming us up with the sand-nin would be 1) she lost a bet to someone 2) she assigned each team a number, rolled two die and made the two numbers that showed up (us obviously) team up. Whatever the reason, I just hope we get through this mission without killing each other. And Gai-sensei, please don't make us hug the sand-nins. Of course we love our new teammates, just take our word for it.

It's a good thing I conserved chakra earlier, because it looks like the Byakugan will finally come in handy now.

...I'm a bit confused right now. Are we still continuing the East Wall RP thing, or has that been put on hold? Where exactly are all the characters in terms of plot and position right now? and should we still be RPing, or are we waiting for the results of the poll?

8:38 pm - chaos
I was patrolling outside the East wall when I heard an odd rumbling noise, followed by a loud crash. Apparently part of the East wall has collapsed. There's dust everywhere and I can't really see anything, but the rain is steadily beating that down into a thick sludge. If this keeps up the East wall will be surrounded by a virtual baricade of mud and sludge.
I tried using the Byakugan to see if there were anyone trapped beneath the rubble. From what I can tell, there seems to be a repair team trapped. At least three people, maybe more. I'm tempted to go and try help, but this might be a diversionary tactic. ...should I just keep my post? ...surely people will send help.

8:18 pm - ....patrolling
So far this mission has been the most grueling endurance training that I've ever been through. I don't think I can endure Lee much longer. Usually on our other missions he's distracted by sensei, the two of them hopping backwards with carnivorous poodles strapped onto their backs or something, but since Gai-sensei has been preoccupied with this strange rain, it's just ME he keeps talking to. There aren't even any squirrels that he can go save. Those lucky little rabid bastards get a break today. And what is this rivalry business? There are winners and there are losers, but rivals? Ha! To soften the blows I suppose.

Well, I must go back to patrol. I heard something strange has happened with the East Wall.

3:51 pm - Patrol
We've finally got a new mission patrolling the outskirts of the village. I'm glad to be doing it, even if it means walking around in the storm. It gives me an opportunity to move around, after all. I was afraid I was going to start growing moss after being cooped up in the house for so long. With it raining this hard, visibility is pretty low. Sometimes I use Byakugan to scout the area, but I can't use it too much lest I waste my chakra. I haven't seen anyone or anything suspicious so far. That only makes me more nervous.

10:18 pm - more Rain
It's still raining. From what I can tell, it rained the whole night through without pause. It's strange and annoying, and being cooped up like this puts my nerves on end. It creates this strange feeling of being locked down, of standing still while something unknown is moving at me at a terrible speed from an unpredictable position. I hate this feeling. It puts me at in unacceptably vulnerable position.
I hope we do something soon. I don't want to keep waiting like this.

I had planned to go out training again this morning, but by the time I woke up, it was already raining torrents outside. Strange, considering how it was clear and sunny yesterday. It just goes to show that nature is a fickle mistress. In any case, it ruined my plans for training today. Hopefull tomorrow will be better.

In other news, Gai-sensei also has a journal now. ...I suppose the good news is the day can't get any worse.

9:48 pm - Mission
Gai-sensei made us wake up bright and early today for our special mission. He wouldn't tell us what it was beforehand, saying something about how we need to learn to adapt to surprises as they come. I was so sure it would be a dangerous mission that I trained all day the day before in preparation. It turns out our mission was to help the Godaime with her paperwork.

Lee was ecstatic, but when is he not? So we risked losing our lives to massive, hemorrhage-inducing papercuts all morning. Sensei divided all the paperwork into three piles and told us the last to finish would have to do 500 laps around Konoha. Lee looked so into it I thought he was going to open some sort of Paper-Sorting Gate. I took my time, using the Byakugan to look for blackmail material screen the material. Strangely enough, Tenten, who seemed to be doing the job normally and taking her time, was the first to finish. Then I finished, and Gai-sensei started to sob and hugged me (which in turn made me sob on the inside for totally different reasons) and then he and Lee went and did laps around the village.

Afterwards I got home and found some brownies left for me by Asuma-sensei. I wrapped them up in a box and sent them over to Hinata-sama with a note:

I recieved these brownies from a sensei this morning, but seeing as how the death of my father has killed off all sweetness in my life and made even the sweetest nectar taste like ashes in my mouth, I thought it best to give these to you, so that you may wallow in the sweet corruption of the Main House.

Love and Kisses,

I thought it best to clarify something here. Despite Itachi's and Orochimaru's offers, I have never had any thought of going over to the dark side or whatever stupid things the heroes are calling it these days. True, the Main House was responsible for killing my father and destroying my future by trapping me in a system of socially acceptable slavery, and it's true that they've put a seal on me that has made irreversible psychological damage on me, and it's true that I shudder at the mere thought of marriage and love now because any child of mine would be put in the death trap I am in, but gosh, that doesn't mean that I'm bitter or anything.

So really, the Main House has nothing to worry about. And the heir need not worry that one day she will be smothered in her sleep while the house burns down in flames around her, because I would never think of doing such a thing.

With all that's been going on, I was just worried that the Main House would murder me in my sleep and toss my dead body in a ditch outside town doubt my loyalty. I think this post will confirm exactly where my loyalties lie though.

2:26 am - Uneasy
The moon looks strange tonight. Sharper and colder than usual. I don't know why, but I cannot get rid of this cold dread at the pit of my stomach. My skin feels like it wants to crawl off my flesh. Something is going to happen soon. I can feel the tension in the air, electric and still like the calm before a storm. I trust my intuitions. It can't be just me. Surely the sensei have noticed as well? I don't see them doing anything special though. So far, it's life in Konoha as usual. I don't see how we can afford to be so lax when we're in such a vulnerable position.

Perhaps I should talk to someone about the offer Orochimaru made to me. I refused him, so there's really no need to tell anyone anything. If anything, the Main House will only want to question me further about it...what a bother. Even if I don't tell them about his offer, they probably already know he's up to no good. People like him don't give up easily.

Best to stay on guard.

I woke up early and went to the training grounds alone today. There's something strangely peaceful about that place so early in the morning, when the dew is still clinging to every blade of grass and the mist is still winding languidly around the trees. Usually Lee is always here at this hour and I rarely ever get the place to myself like this. It was...refreshing.
For the entire morning, I forgot that anyone else existed. Around noon, I got tired and went to wash my face in the nearby river. I was too tired to walk home, so I just took a nap by the riverbank. By the time I woke, it was already getting dark, so I guess I was more tired than I thought. It was strange how happy I felt walking home. Nothing special had happened, but I felt more carefree than I had ever felt in my life. Maybe I'll train there again tomorrow.

12:19 am - Another day
Well, the visit to the Main House went...as expected. I don't even know why I was so nervous about the whole thing. Foolish me...I guess I thought something had changed or would change after my meeting with Hiashi-sama. It was the Main House apologizing to the Branch House after all. A private apology, to be sure, but still an apology. But today was a meeting like any other day. Hiashi-sama was there. The elders were there; the man whom, if I had been born under difference conditions, I might have called Grandfather was also there. And we talked, and said nothing.

I apologized for not representing the Hyuuga clan better during the exams. I apologized for being injured, and thus unnable to provide support and protection to the Main House during my hospitalization. I apologized for a lot of things, but to be honest, I cannot remember much. My words were empty and not worth remembering. To be honest, I doubt anyone remember these formalities. They are just done for the sake of tradition.

Tradition forced my father to his death. Tradition in the forms of withered old men who have never known the pains of slavery. No matter how understanding Hiashi-sama is, even he cannot change the Hyuuga clan. It will never change, until old traditions are destroyed. ...I must be getting tired. I shouldn't talk so much. *snickers* I might get in trouble.

Not that trouble isn't already here. Some just refuse to see it. There are snakes beneath the tall grass.

I have been in the hospital for nearly a month, but they're letting me check out tomorrow. This means paying the Main House a visit. It has been a long time since I've felt this kind of dread. In the past, visiting the Main House was a formality that I invested no emotion in. I already knew where I stood with them. I hated them with every ounce of my being, for being the ones who forced my father to his death. Hatred is a simple emotion, you know. It offers its bearer a wonderful peace of mind.

I wish I could still hate them. After all that has happened, feeling hatred towards them is impossible. The truth complicates everything. Even Hinata-sama, whom I would not have hesitated to kill...now I realize she is just a girl. It's a mystery to me how I could have hated a girl like that so much.

Well, in any case, the visit is unavoidable. I am, after all, still a Hyuuga.

10:43 am - Back
I've started my new training regiment today in order to perfect my defense. I see now that there is no such thing as an absolute defense, but the more I know about my own weaknesses, the closer I can come to creating a good defense. I hope we're going to have a new mission soon. I'd like to train my offensive attacks as well, and you can never quite go all out on teammates. People get upset when they die.

Apparently the sensei are all very...close. This makes me fear for my life understand their behavior a bit more. Iruka-sensei's fondness for spankings, Kakashi-sensei's obssession with dirty books, and Gai-sensei...actually no. I will never even come close to understanding Gai-sensei. This makes me more happy than anyone could ever imagine.

12:44 am - God, why do you hate me?
Now that I am sure memes are the voice of Destiny, I cannot help but be motivated to find out what my future is in all things. Now I realize that this was a mistake on my part, and sometimes ignorance is true bliss.

In an attempt to change my Fate, the way certain people have been spouting off about, I decided to try again.

There is no arguing with results like that. It must be Destiny's voice, telling me that I am destined to become a bumbling idiot. Lee will be ecstatic to hear that he will become my savior.

1:03 am - Good news, I suppose.
Well, the doctors tell me I should be fully healed in about a week, so I should be able to get back to training without fear of opening any old wounds. I am sure Gai-sensei will be ecstatic and will make me do 500 push-ups to show me just how happy he is that I am recovered. I still have not quite figured out the difference between a happy Gai-sensei and a mad Gai-sensei. It seems to me that either way, I get punished. But no matter. I actually look forward to the training. Being cooped up in a hospital room is unbearable, especially when the window has such a nice view of the outside world. I'll be glad to be able to walk freely through Konoha without the nurses clucking over me.

In the meantime, someone brought this to my attention:
What Naruto character will save you? by bureiku

This is so ridiculous that it's ominous. Considering how many ridiculous things have happened to me lately, and how many ridiculous people (or rather, just one certain person) I have been losing to, I am beginning to worry that this might be downright prophetic. So apparently, in 45 years I will be useless and Iruka-sensei will be some kind of nurse or crossing guard.
