Naruto belongs to VIZ and Buffy belongs to Mutant Enemy. No copyright infringement is intended. Fanfiction is, in my opinion, free advertisement. There are many things I've bought because I enjoyed fanfiction that crossed into a new fandom. I encourage everyone to purchase these products.A New Balance - Chapter 1
Sarutobi puffed silently on his pipe as he took in the group of people in front of him. The person who drew his attention the most was one of the older women assembled. Her red hair was oddly recognizable as it was the same red he'd seen on pretty much every Uzumaki besides Naruto. For this reason he found his gaze returning to her as he took in the appearances of her companions. The other older woman was blond and has a close resemblance to one of the girls she said were her daughters, the other looking little like her. The older daughter being much shorter than her sister who was brunette. The blonde was taking in all her sounding much like he was and the younger looking around with child like curiosity, although there was a strange self awareness around her. Then his gaze turned to the son of the red-headed woman. His resemblance to his mother was also not the noticeable unless you looked closely. Their eyes were the same color and had similar cheekbones and chins.
He took one last puff on his pipe before speaking, "You wish to move to Konoha." A simple statement.
"Yes," the red head spoke. "My name is Jessica Harris, however my father was a member of the Uchiha clan. Which is why when we decided to move we thought it best to come here."
Sarutobi steeled himself. He couldn't allow himself to react. If she'd said she was from the Uzumaki clan he would have believed her, there were a few survivors spread out throughout the elemental islands, but she held nothing of the appearance of the Uchiha clan.
She looked towards the others in the group. Sarutobi could tell she wasn't happy being the spokesperson of the group, but was resigned, unhappily, to the position. "I was a great disappointment to my father. All the trouble he went through to have a son with Uzumaki stamina and he got a girl who showed no sign of either the Uzumaki longevity or the Uchiha sharingan. As soon as it became obvious that I would never reach genin level he abandoned me. Then..." Jessica turned to glare at her son.
With a roll of his eyes he spoke, "I'm Xander Harris. Her," he tilted his head in his mother's direction, "very disappointing son. All her effort to marry the most normal 'civilian' and to live as civilian a life as possible and without any training I manage to manifest both the Sharingan and the Mangekyou when I was 15."-Flashback- The Harvest s01e02
"Buddy!" Jesse shouted as he saw Xander.
"Jesse! I know there's still a part of you in there," Xander hoped his friend wasn't truely gone.
Jesse jumped up, "Okay... Let's deal with this. Jesse was an excruciating loser who couldn't get a date with anyone in the sighted community! Look at me. I'm a new man!" Jesse reached out grabbing an unprepared Xander and lifted him by his jacket and slammed his against the wall.
Xander desperately pointed his stake at Jesse's chest. His heart begging for Jesse to still be there to be his friend again, to be one the three amigos again with Willow. He didn't even notice as his eyes began to burn.
"Ooh! Alright. Put me out of my misery. You don't have the guts." Jesse laughed at the thought that Xander could hurt him.
Xander screamed as Jesse was bumped forward by the people fleeing behind him and was impaled on the stake in Xander's hand. As he turned to ash the burning in his eyes increased. To have his best friend die by his hand...
Two vampires made to grab Xander but backed off as they saw his eyes. The weird red causing them to panic and run as Luke died at Buffy's hand. Xander's eyes returned to normal as his gaze caught Buffy's.-END flashback-
"I also didn't pass out, which considering how much chakra that uses and I had never used mine implies I also have some of the abnormally high reserves for someone without training." Xander resisted the urge to mention his relief that his eyes had returned to normal afterwards, Buffy wouldn't not have been ready for a conversation about red eyes right then. Especially since he wouldn't have known what she was talking about.End - Chapter 1Author's Note:I haven't written anything in almost a year... Although I've been thinking about my stories a lot and will try to finish them once I get this done. I intended this to be a one shot but wanted to share what I'd finished because reviews inspire me. I'm also up for better titles.
