Don't Make Me Wild [fic] 1/?

Title: Don't Make Me Wild
Genre: Romance, humor
Rating: T or PG-13
Fandom: Naruto
Characters: Sasuke, Tenten, Neji, Hanabi, Naruto, Hiashi
Summary: Tenten finds herself in a tangle of engagements, battles, bets and general chaos - much to her dismay.
Notes: A fic for ypaladinofchaos's birthday! Happy birthday, dude! ^_^ Heavily based on my first beloved anime (along with Robotech and Akazukin Chacha) Ranma 1/2. Cameos may appear. Chaos certainly will.

* * * 

Without understanding even the reason,
Ranma, Ranma, it's getting dark
Ever since I met you, Ranma, Ranma,
fighting about one thing or other
 -Ranma ½ OP

“Tenten, darling, could you come here for a moment?”

 

Tenten glided into the living room, her steps automatically growing slower, more deliberate, as she moved from the white-lit freedom of the sun-roofed foyer into the cooler, darker formality of what her mother still insisted on calling the sitting room. The traces of taijutsu-stance that lingered on her out-of-battle movements faded away; her spine curved slightly, her hands dropped, her head was held at a humbler angle.

 

The slightly cold feeling in her stomach intensified as she saw not only her mother but also her father – not in his jounin uniform or the heavy-cloth coveralls that he used in the forge – in clean silks, formal-wear from the homeland their family had left three, four generations ago.

 

“Father, mother,” Tenten murmured respectfully.

 

They looked her over with approval – and if their honest love for their only child biased them slightly, they were objective enough to know they had done well in raising their off-spring.

 

“Tenten,” her father rumbled in the deep voice she loved so well. “How was your day?”

 

Tenten brightened, and her head came back up as she began to chatter about how her training had gone. Both she and her father grew excited as they talked about Tenten’s Soushoryuu, and how she was almost able to get the dragons to manifest themselves as weapons themselves, winds to aid the blades, teeth to cut. Her mother watched her family with fond tolerance for their enthusiasm.

 

Tenten was just explaining how she had managed to hit Neji with a nine-strike sansetsukon/tonfa combo, now dancing in the middle of the room to illustrate her moves, when her father, laughing as he watched, got up and clapped a warm hand on her shoulder.

 

“That’s my girl,” he said proudly, and Tenten thrilled to his praise. Her subtle apprehension was entirely forgotten as he led her to sit beside him, facing her mother across the low coffee-table.

“That’s my girl,” he said again, chuckling. “You do our family proud, Tenten. We have been warriors since before Konoha’s birth, and fine swordsmen and bowmen we have been too – but you, my lass, you make the blades dance.”

 

Tenten could not keep a wide smile from spreading across her features, but somewhere deep inside was wondering at this sudden outpouring of praise. Had someone died?

 

“Our family is known, Tenten, for our skill with weaponry. Only one other bloodline in Konoha is as known for it as we are. And you – you have proven that you will carry our legacy higher than it’s been. We hoped you might, but – now we know. And so, Tenten,” her father smiled, as her mother beamed and pressed Tenten’s now-limp hand between hers, “It is up to you to unite the two foremost schools of weapons-usage in Konoha.”

 

Tenten did not feel cold in her stomach – she could not feel her stomach at all, just a big gaping hole. “I…I…what…?”

 

“You will marry Sasuke of Clan Uchiha,” her father told her, patting her on the shoulder. “Isn’t that a wonderful surprise? I bet you didn’t know you had such a fine young fiancé, did you?” He beamed, proud of himself for arranging such a wonderful husband for his daughter.


Tenten stared blankly at him for a moment, her jaw hanging open.

 

Then she bolted to her feet. “WHAT?!”

I dunno. I guess he seems the type. I mean it's hard to imagine him actually chasing anyone, ne?

Oh, a reason to use my SasuTen icon! ^^

Even though you told me about it beforehand, I kind of had a feeling of who her father was talking about when he said another clan familiar with the art of weaponry. None of the other shinobis really deal with weapons. :P

I'm interested in seeing how this continues.

Heh, glad you like it. At the moment Tenten is very much against the thought of marrying Sasuke, but he's going to see if he can change her mind.
