Okay, so Chapter Nine is being tough to write, and though I suspect it's just me refusing to accept any of my ideas half-cocked, I'd rather do this right.
Thusly rather than let you go another few months without anything, I present to you a little piece of character exploration I made, extrapolated from the VERY LITTLE hard facts available on Yuuhi Kurenai.
Now, you're probably thinking, "Oh, but there's so much information here, what is he talking about?" Let me put this in perspective: EVERYTHING HERE I HAD TO WORK OUT/MAKE UP MYSELF, with the exception of her military record.
Yuuhi Kurenai is more two-dimensional than Tenten.
Oh, you know it's true.
Now, am I forgetting anything...
IT'S NOT DEAD.
SEE?! TOTALLY NOT DEAD.
