Nobody actually knows the main goal of the Akatsuki, and for a long while, nothing really happened. But then came the day when they decided to strike....and fail. Quite badly actually. In fact, it caused quite a lot of deaths (well, all of them died)
"I didn't! I'm immortal, bitches!" *this is Hidan, probably the rudest and sadist of all the Akatsuki, worshipper of Jashin and just a plain idiot. He ended up headless, mangled up and left in a ditch, but because he is immortal, he cannot die which means the rest of his eternity is actually pretty boring*
"Hidan, I'm better off dead than in your situation." *Kakuzu, Hidan's partner and a proper loan shark (we'll get to Kisame later) He sadly decided to carry around a suitcase full of money around with him and smack Asuma round the head with it as if it were a weapon of mass destruction* "Well it worked didn't it?" *Yes it did, but unfortunately he too was defeated rather embarrassingly*
*Now we lead onto Kisame* "Sup?" *Who is probably the most unpopular of all the Akatsuki, but is probably one of the strongest in terms of physical strength* "Hehe!" *He is better known as one of Kirigakure's Seven Master Swordsmen of the Mist, and is the wielder of Samehada. Not much else you can say about this one, but he kills himself in the end* "I heard that! Bet you have a lot to say about pretty boy over here!"
"..." *Itachi Uchiha. Surveys have shown him to be probably one of the most popular characters in the Naruto franchise altogether, let alone the Akatsuki. Brother of Sasuke Uchiha, he assassinated almost all of his clan and escaped to join the Akatsuki, who could not resist his potential. Guess what guys? He may be made of stone, but inside he is probably the softest at heart, trying to be more of a pacifist than a fighter (but I wouldn't recommend saying that to his face Ok?). But here's a fact for you. He dies as well...*
"Itachi may be the most popular, but at least I am the most attractive!" *Deidara, a missing-nin from Iwagakure, who has the explosion release kekkei genkai. Does not like Itachi in particular, but he only joined the Akatsuki because Itachi recommended him. Gets blown up, and the rest of his life is complicated.*
"Attractive? More like gay fabulous..." Sasori from Suna, a master puppeteer and probably one of the most adorable Akatsuki members* "A...adorable?" *he partners up previously with Orochimaru, before he disappears, and then he is partnered with Deidara. Probably the first Akatsuki member to die, and in the hands by probably the weakest Shinobi ever! Sakura Haruno!* "Shut up! Don't remind me!"
*Next up with have Orochimaru, the snake guy, who has an obsession with Sasuke Uchiha and power* "It's not like that!" *Yes it is. And he decided to ditch the Akatsuki, die in the hands of Sasuke himself, before coming back to life again by the same person to fight in the Shinobi war. This guy is probably the most disliked of all the characters, and I am not surprised because of how obnoxious he is!*
*Konan is one of the founders of the Akatsuki and the only female of the group, but she has not got a reputation, far from it! She does not talk much, neither does she have much leadership over the Akatsuki, but she does make nice origami including wings and flower bouquets.*
*The leader (or so he says) of the Akatsuki is a guy called Pein. Weird name, but almighty power* "Hmm" *Seriously, even if you do get over the fact he has piercings all over him, I would still avoid him at all costs. He is dangerous and has the creepy Rinnegan. Don't ask how he dies, he just did*
"Do me next! Do me now!!!" *The multi-personality black and white plant guy, Zetsu. This guy is a creation of Madara's and his story is so complicated and irritating, I am not even going to explain it. All I am saying is that he can merge into walls, so technically he is the spy for the Akatsuki* "That's it? Surely I have more to me than that!!!" *He does, but I can't be bothered to explain it all*
"My turn Senpai!!!" *sigh, and last, but not least, we have Tobi. The moron that the poor Akatsuki has to put up with. He is hyper, childish and has a fetish for dangos. But even though he is the derp, he has the most suffocating hug ever that could probably crush a fully grown man to dust if he has the chance.* "Teehee! Senpai's so funny!"
Finally, we have our special guests from my fanfictions 'To Kill an Uchiha' and 'The Demon Doll' Aya Uchiha, cousin of Itachi and Sasuke and holder of the Jade Sharingan, and Reika Oshiro, niece of Deidara, art enthusiast and major fashion stylist
Right that's our introductions sorted, so now that we are all acquainted, let's finish off our little prologue.
So, as I was saying, either all the Akatsuki are dead, lying bodiless in a ditch, or just being a two timer and ditching it all together. But for this fanfiction, we are bringing them back! Uniting them once again! And putting on the greatest circus the world has ever seen! So take your seats everyone, and please enjoy the performance!
