The following are the recorded responses of Eyazahrid to the feedback he received on the above listed chapter and the story in general for the week following. This document is to serve as a replacement to the traditional Author’s Note at the beginning and ending of chapters and will be kept separate from both the above listed chapter and any future chapters unless deemed sufficiently important.

“I feel like Mai and Naruto are dead and she is a permanent partner with Tsume at this point. too bad, but maybe I’ll be proven wrong in a future chapter”


Well, yes, she is permanently with Tsume…probably. Whether that grows to include someone else remains to be seen.

“Man it is going to be a big ol convoy when they finally get moving.”


Yes, its certainly starting to look like that isn’t it?

“Hmason:ok i’ve been meaning to bring this up for a while now but i f*** HATE the Juugo plotline, i just don’t care about him or what he’s doing and jsut now he made the BIGGEST mistake you can make, he blabbed everything to a girl after sex…the oldest trick in the book”

-Hmason (Guest)

Can’t really hold that against a guy who has voluntarily locked himself away to avoid hurting people. He’s not exactly experienced in social matters.

It’s unfortunate you don’t care about that plotline but I have plans for it and enjoy writing from a perspective of someone far outside the usual circles of influence. Luckily for you, there won’t be many Juugo scenes for a while because there’s not much more I need to cover with him for the time being.

“Looool tsume is now finding out that naruto is terrorizing her clan xD that was hilarious, and once mai discovers that she really came back for worrying too much, well she is gonna feel really stupid about it.
And hey our boy juugo lost his virginity, and if she has a say then he is definitely staying there from niw on haha.”


Even without that he’d probably be staying but if he had any doubts about his plans I think they’ve been well and truly crushed by Kari.




“The fact that Naruto isn’t sure if he misplaced a week or not is a little concerning but very hilarious,
Funnily enough: Naruto would probably appreciate reports about what he did and when he did it with all the holes in his memory…”


Yes, he very much would. Eventually he’ll get a chance to take a vacation of his own.


“I’m not gonna lie but I really don’t give two f*** about Juugo. I literally skip over his sections cause they add nothing interesting to the story. All his story sections amount to is chopping wood and a naggy older woman who wants to bone and surprise, she does. Like who cares about this. Its just a boring a** slice of life segment of a random character who’s only stick is going hulk when angry.”

-antishyguy weegee

An unfortunate opinion. Juugo has a role to play and I enpoy the chance to write for a perspective of someone not as entangled in the complexities as the others tend to be. It’s refreshing. His actions also have a role to play in the wider story because this isn’t cannon and I don’t have to keep him as “a random character who’s only stick is going hulk when angry“.

And as a visitor from chapter one we have this guest review;

“Hammerfury:This is not an attempt at bashing. This is however, an attempt to save other people like me who aren’t looking for this kind of story.
Naruto is a villain in this. That’s not a matter of an opinion, he’s done a lot of f*** up stuff. Maybe you are into that, then go ahead and read, it’s pretty well written. However, if you were looking for a neutral good smart Naruto, or a hero Naruto, or something like that, then I suggest you search for another story.
Again, this is NOT BASHING.”

…..The whole “One body at a time” in the descriptions didn’t, perhaps, tip you off a bit that he’s going to be involved in darker things? Really?

Well, it has been quite some time since the last time I did this, hasn’t it? I’ve been meaning to sit down another update for quite some time but between Chapters, Commentaries, various distractions, and not knowing what on earth to talk about I never really got around to it. 

Until this evening, that is. 

Gods, I don’t even know where I left off, where do I start? 

I guess by going back to find my last update- One moment please. 

Ah, yes, the one back in June. Well, the good news is that the issues I was having back then are nowhere near as prevalent now as they were back then- though you may have noticed that in the last seven months- so despite not having a second job- technically- things are fine and I’m still getting chapters out.

I’ve actually had the Patreon releases done early for the last two weeks, so things are going suspiciously smoothly on that front. 

I suppose on the topic of “how things are going” I should probably go over, well, how things are going. Pretty sure that’s the main purpose of these- after allowing me to ramble for a period of time, of course. That’s always going to be the primary function of anything I write- so let’s just jump it. 

First, we’ll talk about the website. You know, the one you’re reading this on. By now you’ve probably noticed the changes and, if you’re especially perceptive, you might realize this is the same setup I had back in March of 2019. 

This is not by accident. 

It’s not on purpose, either, on that note but it was quite inevitable. I’ve just had the plan I was on with this host downgraded- as you might have been able to tell by the sudden host branding that’s probably shown up now that I’m not on the business plan- which meant their offline team had to revert everything to back when I first added the plan to remove anything done with the extra features. 


Actually, they were doing that when I first started this so I was typing this up in a Google Doc rather than on the site itself. They’ve finished now but I figure I might as well finish it here and then just move it over. 

You may- or may not- be wondering why I chose to change the site to a lower plan and the answer to that is pretty simple- 

It’s a hell of a lot cheaper. 

I was paying way too much for the business plan and, let’s face it, there really aren’t a lot of you who stop by to check these out, are there? I don’t need to ask that, I have the analytics. I think there were a total of 65 visitors last month and considering the small fraction that went anywhere beyond the landing page there’s a good chance the majority of those were bots. 

With no one using the site there was little justification for spending so much so I’ve downgraded it. The posts should still be here and I can still post Commentaries – and maybe even future updates- but that’s all I really needed. Hell, I could probably do that for free if I spent an afternoon setting about learning how. 

I’ll add that to the list, actually, that’s not a bad idea. 

Back to the topic of old posts, however, they should still be there text-wise but I’ve been informed by the offline team that any of the hyperlinks including pictures won’t have survived the reversion. I’ll have to go in and fix that manually- if I can be bothered to. 

For the life of me I really can’t think of any pictures there that were desperately important besides perhaps some of the relationship graphs and maybe that Elemental Map I had been using for the story. If I do go back I’ll probably just do those, but I really should look into even cheaper- or free- options considering just how little use this site gets. 

So if you wanted to go back and see pictures of my trees or something I’m afraid you’re out of luck. 

You know, unless I post new ones, but that’s probably not too likely.

Moving on. 

Work has been…work…so that could probably be better. We have a handful of new guys for the first time in a while, it’s performance review season, and my metrics have been less than impressive as of late. All in all, it sounds like a good recipe for my ass getting let go so I’ve been just a bit stressed about that. 

What little good that’s come from that stress is that I’m looking into various certifications and licenses I can get to help increase potential job options and make myself a more attractive applicant. I have an AHA BLS course Tuesday evening and I’m going in for my travel ID Wednesday afternoon. My Level One Fingerprint Clearance card arrived yesterday, I have the info I need to apply for a Pharmacy Tech Trainee license, and if I have the spare cash- and time- I might go for at least an unarmed guard card on the twenty-sixth. We’ll see how that ends up playing out. 

Basically I’m scrambling for anything I can get my hands on to pad my resume and make me “qualified” for some of these positions. 

My Operations Manager says I shouldn’t worry but I really don’t like taking chances. I’d much rather have a backup ready to go in case things turn extra sour. 

Alright, what’s next? 

I’ve got a list of stuff I need to take care of but I don’t think there’s anything on there that would be of any real interest to any of you. I’ve made very little progress on my other writing projects, unfortunately, but I do want to be able to dedicate more time to them here soon. 

The biggest problem I keep running into is that by the time I get home I’m too tired to write and on my days off I want to do just about anything other than work. 

Well, specifically on my days off I just want to sleep for a couple days straight in hopes of actually managing to wake up energized and refreshed one of these days- fat chance of that ever happening. 

On that note, I am off an extra day this week because  Ivolunteered one of my off days last week- one of the many reasons I continue to be utterly exhausted no matter how early I go to bed or how long I let myself sleep in for- so I might be able to force myself to sleep into at least the early afternoon on one of them.

Oh, who am I kidding? I can rarely manage to sleep past 11, my body wants me up by 10 so it can complain about being tired. 

There’s probably more I should bring up but I failed to write it down first so it’s already escaped my feeble memory. 

I guess on a bit of a more positive note I bought myself a fountain pen which has proven to be terribly addictive. If you’ve never used one I’d really recommend it. I picked one up for about $20 and then grabbed a bottle of Japanese ink for $22. I foresee the purchase of far too much ink in my future and probably a few more pens so I don’t have to clean out or waste any inks. 

And with that we’ll call it an update, I suppose. I think three pages is probably plenty for now. 

Until I next have your attention, 

The following are the recorded responses of Eyazahrid to the feedback he received on the above listed chapter and the story in general for the week following. This document is to serve as a replacement to the traditional Author’s Note at the beginning and ending of chapters and will be kept separate from both the above listed chapter and any future chapters unless deemed sufficiently important.

“heya! thanks for the chapter!

I will be honest… I kinda think Asuma is a super d*** in this story. He feels threatened when the Wolves are not technically under his control so he ‘asks’/threatens them to leave. When Naruto willing agrees to leave now Asuma is PO he has no legal or technically right on what the Wolves will be doing outside of his walls.

Yeah a spy. Good luck with that. as much as you hate that Naruto has his own army none of them will spy for you A-hole.

I love the Kurenai/Anko/Naruto mini lemon shown! i think Kurenai is hot and i could see why Naruto would feel attracted to her enough to do casual one night stands!”


You’re welcome. I’m sorry to hear he comes off as a dick, that really wasn’t my intention for his character in the slightest and I hate that most of my readers hold that opinion of him.

I’m assuming “PO” is short for “Pissed Off”, in which case I’d like to note he isn’t angry that he’ll not know what’s going on with the Wolves once they’re gone from Konoha but realized that not having an eye on them while they’re away is probably just as dangerous as keeping them in Konoha.

Kurenai is indeed quite attractive.

“Honestly thought you wrote Mai out of this story but looks like she is making a comeback, wouldn’t have minded if you did to be honest after the drama s*** ages ago.”


She’s his second in command, Mai still has a role to fill in the story.

“This was an interesting chapter to be sure. Tad ironic that Kurenai sleeps with him considering their lack of a relationship was a huge reason why he eventually became Tsukiyomi. I’m sure you’re nearly done and i’m curious if a meeting with Ino and/or Sakura is in order along with his mother and Naruko. This is about to get fun”


The original Kurenai arc ended up being scrapped quite some time ago, which may have made things a bit more smooth on that front.

He’s already told Naruko he’ll be meeting with her and Sakura before he leaves. There’s a descent chance he’ll visit with the Yamanaka too. The one least likely to see him again before he leaves is of course Kushina.

“this was a good chapter. like this ending better with your supporters even tho i is not one. makes it shorter just in case there is an omake or even a sneak peek for the next chapter in the story.”


Don’t think I’ve ever done something like that but I’ll keep it in mind for the future.

“After reading this I flashed back to chapters 19 and 20 where Kurenai found Anko in Naruto’s bed and talked about wanting to be like an older sister to him and Anko was inviting Kurenai to join her and him. Seems Anko wins again and seems like Kurenai’s issue with men is resolved at least in Naruto’s case. I wonder how that will affect Kurenai’s future interaction now that she’s joined them. Cause while she’s not a wolf she’s also not simply an outsider. I am loving the Tsume/Mai relationship, but I’m curious how the wolves leaving Konoha will affect that. I’m also curiouos if Kakashi will start training Sakura seriously because of their shared interest, she might even earn the effort of him remembering her name! I am very curious as to who the hell Asuma could use as a spy since after Kiri Naruto is going to be extremely careful about who he lets in and everyone who is already in wouldn’t betray him for the likes of Asuma, hell his own ANBU are starting to turn against him. I
noticed that we’ve seen a lot of Guren in this story and I loved that scene in chapter 71 where she was flirting with Shikamaru and the wolves looked at him like he was insane for not wanting to play with the “deadly, attractive, enemy kunoichi” I wonder if there’s a plan there or if you just like her character and are using her more often as a result. Overall I just love this story and can’t wait for more.”


It shows up fine in my email but it took a superb amount of effort not to reformat your review to look better here on the website. The price I must pay to retain the integrity of a quote.

Anko always wins.

Kurenai’s arc, unfortunately, ended up being cut from the story when there was a large outcry for more focus on Naruto and I never tried to work it back in.

Kakashi might start training her a bit more, even if just out of sheer boredom.

Guren- like all the women who have been influenced by the mindset of Orochimaru- is very fun to write. She also happens to be one of the most competent Shinobi under Orochimaru’s command which makes her the perfect choice for him to use as an agent for the sake of the Wolves. The fact that Orochimaru knows she gets along well with Naruto is a huge plus on that front, too. Orochimaru is much more inclined to use a competent person he knows won’t annoy Naruto than risk it with someone else.

“Amazing as always, though I do hope to get a lemon soon!”


I’m afraid I have no plans to include lemons within Sealkeeper. Taking into accounts previous lemon attempts and just how long the story has gone on without them I think it would be more than a little jarring and out of place to suddenly include one of my awful attempts at writing a lemon.

And visiting us from Chapter 57;

“Is anyone ever gonna mention shadow clones to Naruto? And how they can lighten the burden of paper work/training/being in two places at once?”


“Ever”? Good sir, you’re not even halfway through the story yet. Hardly the time to be asking if somethings going to happen when there’s a good chance it already has.

“Nice little chapter and some nice background to make things fun. I can’t help but wonder when you’ll get to him talking to his old teammates”


He’s already spoken to Naruko about it, but he did tell her he’d say goodbye to the team so there should be a team meeting sometime before he leaves.

“I love the DDlg relationship between Naruto and Anko you got going on”


I have no idea what “DDlg” is supposed to be but anything with Anko has to be good.

“So many things going on at once. I don’t know if it was intentional but the influx of information and limited amount of callbacks puts us (or at least me) in the same state as Naruto. Things get forgotten, the passage of time gets distorted and projects kinda get left to boil over. Saw the scene in kiri and was like, “Deep cover wolves… WAIT THE KIRI CANNIBALS!” Completely forgot that there are “Were” wolves in kiri. Not born under the moons light, but worship it all the same. Can’t wait to see more.”

-Axius W. Xanxus

I would hesitate to call them “Wolves”. While they are indeed derivative of the Man-Eater sect of the Wolves their ties are solely to the Man-Eaters and not the House of Wolves itself.

“damn, I am all for watching Juugo go and have a ragtag family in yuki no kuni, in fact I just want a separate fic detailing his escapades in there, building the railroads and heedless of the world as others try to take over it/defend it”

-Wyvern Yellow

It is certainly a tempting prospect.

“I gotta admit I’m digging the Jugo sidestory right now.”


I’m glad. I quite like the side story and it serves as an important tool when I need to focus on something to pass time in the story.

“I can not wait for juugo to become a railway magnate. I feel so proud if him.”


Chances are he’ll get there before long at this rate.

“As much as I like this story I feel like I am always disappointed when there is a section about Juugo and the trains. Those sections don’t ever really seem to have much going on to advance the story for how much they are covered and it has been going on for enough time that I’ve actually forgot the purpose of his mission. I know this is kind of a ridiculous review because this story’s pace is slow in general (I don’t mean this as an insult) and has always had a lot of talking, planning, and thinking but these sections I find to be less interesting than others. As always though I enjoyed the new chapter and I look forward to the next.”


I’m sorry you feel that way, the Juugo side story seems to be a rather big hit with a lot of my readers (see above for examples) and is used both as an intermission to help me pass the time without jarring jumps and as a way for me to take small breaks from the complications that are the House of Wolves.

“The one thing that I notice is that the list is starting to get very long and it takes up more room than it should. Have you thought about dedicating a single chapter to the patrons and then updating it ever two weeks?”

-Wrath of The Sun Deity

As public releases are twice a month, the list only makes an apperance every two weeks, though I doubt that’s what you havew in mind.

I have made a poll for Patrons to see how they feel about about the list and will endeavor to respect their opinion on the matter as the presentation of the list at the end of public chapters is one of the benefits they receive as Patrons.

“God who is jugo? I did skip entire story involved him after… what chapter? Is he the guy that search for artifacts?

And why is this chapter only cover two conversation scenes between Naruto and kakashi ,two for Naruto and anko and one for Anko Kurenai…

So does this mean there will be at least 2 more chapter before the wolves move out? 3 for settling in new base not including snake lady and situation in Konoha; Asuma reaction ,his sister or yugao’s team… I guess?

Anyway nice update will wait for more.”

-Marvelous Pathetic

Juugo is the original source of Orochimaru’s Ten no Juin and was introduced in Shippuden when Sasuke was building his team. He’s the orange haired one who was good with animals and ended up using curtains as clothing.

In Sealkeeper he was sent to Yuki no Kuni by Jirobo (The Overseer in charge of locating suitable gifts for Naruto) to complete a mission and has been working on the railways since his arrival.

The chapter was made up of eight scenes.

Two or three is correct, I have a few more things to cover before they depart.

“Zabuza isn’t one of the original Seven Swordsmen, Juzo Biwa had the Kubikiribocho before him.”


As soon as I said he was, he was. Anything I write is truth, regardless of cannon, because this is my story.
