[[WMG:The Conspiracy's goal in regards to Naruto is to turn him into a member of ROOT.]]
Basically they want to provoke him to the point that the village council approves having him imprisoned and Danzo will be free to turn him into a weapon. Remember, the banker mentioned that if Naruto became violent, they were to call for the ANBU. Said ANBU could easily be ROOT agents.
* Or alternatively, he could be executed and the kyuubi sealed into a young ROOT agent.

[[WMG: Hiashi's systematic abuse of Hinata is spurred by more than him just being an asshole.]]
Whatever else can be said about Hiashi, he's not stupid. If he is indeed involved in this conspiracy among the Konoha elite, he probably has some plan for her that requires her to be emotionally and psychologically broken.

[[WMG:Team 8 will be on hiatus until the manga finishes, or will never be finished.]]
This is not just a long wait. Too many plot points have been spoiled or off-set by canon. While the readers are trying to assert fanon over canon, the author is waiting for all of the canon plot points to be concluded so that he can start working on his own with fewer constrictions.
* Seems unlikely. The author already made a point that Itachi is not good in Team 8 and a lot of the plot after that point hinges somewhat on that. Regardless, there is no reason to wait.
* The author's stance is explicitly stated to be to not worry about updating the plot to reflect changes in canon. His story is already AU, and he considers going through the hassle not worth it.
* Completely wrong. The [[http://www.viridiandreams.net/forum/index.php author's forum]] has an attached blog section revealing that the slowdown is due to a serious medical incidence. Further, the [=EvilAuthorLord=] simultaneously work on both Team8 and their other project, Harry Potter and the Nightmares of Futures Past. As of June 20, 2017 both stories have their next chapters measured at 17% for Team 8 and 19% for [=HPatNoFP=]

[[WMG: The person who ordered Kurenai's genin team dead is...]]
* ''Hiashi.'' He is notably much crueler, and the mentions of Mattai never add in a Cursed Seal. He may have tried to off her team so he could lead the clan. Also, the clan has ''something'' planned about Naruto...
** Chapter 22 definitely makes Hiashi a lead suspect for this. Although nothing's set in stone yet.
* ''Danzou.'' He's been mentioned a lot when he wasn't in canon. There must be a reason for this.
** That reason would be that Danzou didn't even ''exist'' in canon until after the timeskip.
* ''BOTH!'' There is nothing mutually-exclusive about them, and if Danzo aided Hiashi in this with ROOT, Danzo now has a debt to cash in with the Hyuuga Clan.

[[WMG: Asuma is a little in love with Kurenai.]]
Because...he threatened to kick the ass of the head of Konoha's ''most important clan'' because he would've [[spoiler:disrupted her funeral]]. Considering that he loves her in canon...
* The death of her team caused Kurenai to become more introverted and stymied any chances of a relationship developing, sadly. Also, Asuma and Kakashi were both [[spoiler:there and not fast enough to stop Kurenai from getting killed]], so it's a particularly important event for them as well as the kids.



[[WMG: Team 8 is not a fanfic of Naruto...]]
...Naruto's a fan-comic of Team 8.
* [[FunnyMoment Good one.]]
* If only.

already on his way to learning the Rasengan.]]
In chapter 17, when Naruto uses his Chakra Pulse, the author takes time to note that under Jiraiya's tutelage, Naruto had been performing "elaborate chakra control exercises." When I think about chakra control exercises and Jiraiya in the same sentence, I think Balloon Training, the precursor to the Rasengan. Plus, Naruto's already learned water walking and tree climbing, so what else is there to do?
* If only.
Confirmed.

* Sakura was also said to be book smart and analytical in canon, so maybe she'll learn more advanced tactics and become a more competent SmartGirl and planner for Team 7?

[[WMG: Sasuke will learn ThePowerOfFriendship]]
Think about it: in canon, with Naruto it was always DefeatMeansFriendship, except that in canon [[spoiler:Sasuke was the last]], but here, Sasuke's the first!

Since Hinata is under Kurenai's wing during the TimeSkip learning medical ninjutsu, Sakura will instead branch out more. In canon, she was said to be well-suited for genjutsu, so maybe she'll study some of that. Maybe Kurenai left behind some of her knowledge in writing? Sakura was also said to be book smart and analytical in canon, so maybe she'll learn more advanced tactics and become a more competent SmartGirl and planner for Team 7?

\n* Uh... how about no? Honestly, the bond between Naruto and Hinata is a fundamental part of ''Team 8''. Even in this fanfic, Sakura [[ShipperOnDeck ships]] the two.

[[WMG: Sakura's abilities...]]

[[WMG: What Sasuke was actually trying to do when, at the Chunin Exams, he [[spoiler: insulted Hinata]]]]
He was trying to get Naruto pissed so he'd have a better chance at defeating him while he didn't think. [[IHitYouYouHitTheGround Too bad it backfired...]]
* Isn't this pretty much confirmed?
