The story is a ForWantOfANail concept based on the idea that Yuuhi Kurenai scouts the newest class of genins the afternoon before the teams are assigned, and makes note of Hinata's crush on Naruto (among other things). This leads to her requesting that Naruto be placed on her team, replacing Kiba as part of Kurenai’s plans to create a team specializing in reconnaissance. Naturally, this leads to a completely different set of interactions than Naruto had in the canon series, including an original story replacing the "Wave Country" arc, among many others.

->Sarutobi had asked her to revive an old tactical concept, and lead a team of reconnaissance specialists. The last one had come to grief, but she didn't think the concept itself was flawed. What happened to Nomaru, Mattai, and Kobaru-sensei had been a tragic accident. At least that was what she told herself on her good days. ->On her bad days, her thoughts were much darker. Sometimes they flirted with treason. Of a sort, anyway. If her suspicions were correct, she wasn't alone in such thoughts, just in failing to act on them. -->--'''part of Kurenai's exposition'''.

*** He did. Sasuke was trying to use the ol' "Make them angry to make them screw up" gambit, except he used the worst possible time to do so and to the wrong person. Also, it's pointed out that Sasuke didn't pay attention to Naruto fighting Orochimaru and as such had no idea how badly outclassed he really was. Otherwise, the fight between the two might have lasted a lot longer.
