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.
The person who ordered Kurenai's genin team dead is...
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 disrupted her funeral. Considering that he loved her in canon...
Hinata will receive training from Tsunade.Hinata is already going to be Tsunade's servant for six months. I'm sure in that time Tsunade will get to know the girl, and will offer to train her so that "You're not some failure, and I'll prove it by shoving it in your Jerk Ass father's face!"
Team 8 is not a fanfic of Naruto......Naruto's a fan-comic of Team 8.
Yamato will be Team 8's new jonin-senseiBecause why not?
Iruka will be Team 8's new jonin-senseiHe's just as close and understanding as Kurenai was; perhaps his promotion to jonin will be expedited by the Hokage, in an effort to keep their team's dynamic going the way it was.
What will the team's summons be?Naruto's will be...
Naruto is 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?
Guessing on how Part II will play out as a result of the For Want of a Nail event:
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.
Hinata convincing Naruto to spare Neji's lifeis a Shout-Out to canon!Naruto's friendship with Sasuke. Hinata cares about Neji, even if any sane person would wonder why beyond blood relation. Naruto even mentions to the jerkass that she never stopped making excuses for his behavior the entire time she spoke with him even when, really, it was inexcusable. Admittedly there's reasonable doubt about this but it seems suspect to me.
Shino has a Precocious Crush on Kurenai.I don't doubt that he'd react violently to Naruto or Hinata being killed as well but the way he behaves in the morgue is a thing of beauty.
In this timeline, Hiashi is a member of ROOT.Remember what Jiraiya says about the members of 'Danzo's little cult'? "[Danzo] says that the perfect ninja has no emotions, but people that practice that nindo never seem to last. They either completely lose their personality, or they crack like Itachi did." Doesn't that description almost exactly match what the hell is wrong with Hiashi? His idea of 'proper behavior' is total emotionlessness, and buried underneath that seems to be nothing but roiling hatred and spite.
The For Want of a Nail incident involving Kurenai's former team will play out in a similar manner to Kakashi's past team with Obito and Rin.In particular, one of Kurenai's former teammates will turn out to be still alive and seriously screwed up, much like events in the manga's recent canon.
The chief of the turtle summons is GameraSeriously, a Kaiju-sized turtle known as the Friend of All Children...
