Ministry of Magic (exactly one year after the defeat of Voldemort):
“Thank you all for coming to this wonderful event and award ceremony” The Booming voice of Kingsley Shacklebolt rings “First off I would like to say these wonderful individuals have spent more time in the ministry than anyone, even me.” The crowd laughs, (for those of you that don’t know Kingsley is now the minister of magic). “They have shown great leadership to pull this ministry back together. If it weren’t for these three, there wouldn’t be a ministry of magic today.” Kingsley swings his arm in motion to the stage behind him where Harry, Ron, and Hermione were standing eyes wide and beaming. “So today I would like to present these three with Order’s of Merlin 1st class, I’m sorry that they don’t have a class higher than first,” he laughed at his own joke. “Harry, Ron, and Hermione’s work revolutionized the ministry, and made a new world of Magic in all of our lives.” Kingsley was silent for a time as a short witch passed Harry, Ron, and Hermione their Order’s of Merlin. “Now, for a moment of silence for our fallen comrades last year.” There was a long silence, before: “He is gone witches and wizards, even after a year it is hard to believe, he is gone and he is not coming back.” (He was of coarse, talking of Voldemort (not one of those fallen comrades (you know who I’m talking about))). "Well, I guess that concludes this ceremony, everyone have a pleasant day, and we will see most of you here for work tomorrow.” The crowd dispersed, most were taking elevators up to the main streets above. Harry, Ron, and Hermione who had been feeling awkward standing on stage with nothing to do had climbed down the stairs and were standing behind Kingsley who had been watching the others leave. “Alright,” says Kingsley, “Ron, Hermione I know you two have much to plan, it would be a sham if you had to postpone the wedding due to being unprepared.” Hermione’s eyes got wide. She grabbed Ron by the scruff of his neck and ran out of the hall. Harry not wanting to reveal that he knew that Kingsley had gotten rid of them just to talk to him, waved his arm at the stage. It disappeared, to reveal the Fountain of Magical Brethren, so many memories. “Potter,” says Kingsley in a business like tone, “as senior undersecretary to the head of the auror’s office, it is your job to take care of diplomatic affairs.”
“Which means what exactly?” asked Harry, a little confused.
“I need you to talk to the leader of another wizard community, their ways are a little different then ours, but according to FBI uh, Federal Bureau of Incantations, they are classified as level 10 wizards. The average wizard here in Britain now days is only a level 3.”
“what do you think I can do?”
“They may be level 10, but with that wand of yours, and your skill, I would rank you about a level 13, but since the Federal Bureau of Incantations rating system only goes up to ten, there is always the possibility that they are higher than 10 also.” Harry still looked worried. “Don’t worry, they are generally a peaceful people, when you get there don’t talk to anyone, except for the Hokage. Uh, leader of the village.”
“What if I am approached?”
“say nothing, just smile and nod, like you don’t know how to talk.”
“What if I am attacked?”
“I highly doubt that you will, but if the situation should come to it, defend yourself. Your life is a lot more important then this mission.”
“Ok, I will leave immediately.”
“Are you going to disapparate?”
“No, since the ‘Muggles should know what the heck is going on’ act, I’m just going to take my broom, Where exactly am I going?”
“It is a large village, called the Leaf Village in the central regions of Japan”
The Leaf Village:
“I don’t want to hear any more complaints about it Naruto, You’re going!”
“Oh, but picking fruit can hardly be called a ninja job, now can it Grandma Tsunade?” says Naruto
“If you call me grandma one more time, you’ll be sweeping the streets!” says Tsunade
“Sweeping the streets? That doesn’t seem too hard.”
“The streets….the ones that are made of dirt! DUH!”
“Oh, alright I’ll pick the darn fruit” Naruto leaves the office, and heads to the gate. Once at the gate, he waves at he guard and pointed to his head band. The gate opens.
“I have to go out like 10 miles just to find these stupid tree’s, just so I can pick some of this stupid fruit.” Naruto continues his walk, when suddenly he hears a whooshing sound. Naruto looks up, Its…its..no his eye’s must be deceiving him, a man on a broom stick. No, his eyes weren’t tricking him, it was real, and he was landing. Naruto jumped off of the path, and into a nearby bush. The man lands in a flurry of dust and swirling robes. The man starts to make his way towards the leaf village.
“Hold on a second!” yells Naruto as he jumps out of the bushes behind the man. “Where do you think you are going?” Harry, remembering what Kingsley had said, just smiled, nodded, and started to walk again.
“I’m warning you, one more step” Harry turned to face Naruto, face narrowed, he knew someone would get in his way, and he hadn’t even entered the village yet. Harry did not smile or nod this time, this time he just took one backwards step towards the leaf village. Naruto reached into his bag, pulled out a shuriken and threw it at Harry. Harry blocks it with a quick shield charm from his wand…………So who wins? The most famous wizard in Britain? Or the most well known ninja in the leaf village?
Hermione: It's always like Harry to pick a fight, even when he is on a mission.
Sakura: It's always like Naruto to pick a fight with…everyone, even a foreign diplomat.
Hermione: So I guess we have two of a kind here fighting, I don’t see why we should stop them, I guess if they get too carried away, we could prevent any fatalities.
Sakura: I guess, Naruto reaches into his bag again, pulls out a hand full of shurikens, and throws them at Harry.
Hermione: Again Harry blocks it with a simple shield charm. Well that didn’t do much good did it.
Sakura: You know I just realized, this is more than just a battle of two well matched fighters. This is about Britain vs. Japan!
Hermione: Well if you want to look at it that way.
Sakura: You bet I do, GO NARUTO! REPRESENT!
Hermione: I didn’t peg you as the type of person to interrupt a commentary just to cheer for your representative.
Sakura: YAY NARUTO!
Hermione: umm YAY HARRY!
Sakura: YAY NARUTO!
Hermione: YAY HARRY…ok what’s the point in this again?
Sakura: hmmm, let's just make this simple for you, lets just get back to the commentary.
Hermione: Are you insinuating that I have a lower intelligence then you?
Sakura: o_O …in-sin-u-at-ing…
Hermione: AHH, lets just do the commentary so we can get out of here.
Sakura: Fine, The two are just glaring at each other, waiting for the other to make a move.
Hermione: Suddenly, Harry shoots a spell at Naruto.
Sakura: Naruto dodges the spell, but Harry shoots another one, followed by another.
Hermione: Naruto dodges the first spell, but is hit by the second one, it looks to be …yes the spell was Tarantallegra, its--
Sakura: A dancing spell?
Hermione: Well, yes. Naruto is dancing uncontrollably in front of Harry.
Sakura: Harry turns to finish his mission, but hold on. Naruto just made a hand sign, it’s the shadow clone jutsu.
Hermione: Four other Narutos appear on ether side of the original Naruto who is still dancing.
Sakura: Naruto’s clones on the other hand seem to be unaffected by the spell.
Hermione: As the clones charge on an unsuspecting Harry, Harry whips around.
Sakura: There is a flash of white light, the sound of four muffled balloons being popped, and all that is left standing is Harry, with his wand outstretched, and Naruto still dancing.
Hermione: Naruto reaches into his pocket,
Sakura: Remember Naruto is still a ninja, and being forced to dance should have no effect on his aim…he throws the shuriken at Harry and…and misses…
Hermione: Harry turns away again, Naruto has his eyes shut, he seems to be concentrating.
Sakura: If I was in Naruto’s position I would have done this a long time ago.
Hermione: What is he doing?
Sakura: I can only assume that he is focusing all of his chakra into his legs. If he can do that, I don’t think the spell will hold up to Naruto’s chakra.
Hermione: Ok, I get it.
Sakura: Do you really?
Hermione: No, but you can explain it better later, meanwhile Naruto seems to have gained control back in his legs.
Sakura: Naruto charges towards Harry, meanwhile Naruto makes another shadow clone, and while they are running at Harry, it seems that Naruto is going to use his Rasengan.
Hermione: I assume the Rasengan is that ball of swirling blue energy that Naruto is holding?
Sakura: Yes, but I can’t believe that he is going to use it on someone who isn’t a ninja. If there was ever a time to interfere, now would be it.
Hermione: I think Harry can handle himself.
Sakura: You may be right. Harry whips around at the last second,
Hermione: shoots a stunning spell at the clone, and…Wingardium Leviosa at the real Naruto.
Sakura: Naruto is floating through the air. Unable to control his flight.
Hermione: Harry seeing this as an opportunity to strike, lifts the Wingardium Leviosa spell, and immediately performs the full body-bind curse.
Sakura: Naruto who was still airborne, falls to the ground…and does not get up. What did Harry do to him?
Hermione: Its just the full body-bind curse, he’ll be fine in a few hours.
Sakura: I guess since Harry Immobilized Naruto, that means he wins?
Hermione: I would say so.
Sakura: (sigh) Britain wins….
Hermione: No, Harry Potter wins.
