Go To

In which a plot is demolished because a dimple-cheeked baby gave Obito a gummy smile, and then proceeded to raise a minion army with hugs, cuddles and an assortment of saccharine treats.

Welcome To Tomorrow by Izaranna is a Naruto fanfiction in which a fan of the manga reincarnates as Akito Uchiha, only daughter and firstborn child of Fugaku and Mikoto Uchiha. Desperate to stop the Massacre of her family, she begins a campaign to befriend everyone in Konoha.


Welcome To Tomorrow contains examples of:

  • 100% Adoration Rating: All of the Uchiha clan adores their Akito-hime. The rest of Konoha is slowly but surely following, especially the children.
  • The Ace: Minato Namikaze full stop, Akito Uchiha herself, her brother Itachi and their cousin Shisui. Uchihas are in general expected to excel.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Kabuto Yakushi is befriended by Akito and develops Undying Loyalty towards her, before either Danzo or Orochimaru even enter his life.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Pretty much every Uchiha; their — apparent — aloofness sets them apart from the rest of Konoha and makes it easier to turn them into scapegoats whenever something goes wrong.
  • Broken Ace:
    • Kakashi, and he is very well aware of it. He recognizes Akito as a genius on his level and is very, very jealous of her social competence and ability to relate to the rest of the population.
    • Advertisement:
    • Akito herself is very well aware that her little brother Itachi could become one and does her best to offset it.
  • Doorstopper: Already over 200,000 words and nowhere near finished.
  • Feuding Families:
    • Traditionally the Uchiha and Hyuuga clans, to the point where after the events of October 10th, Hiashi expresses thinly-veiled glee at the fact that the Uchihas, including clan head Fugaku, are now homeless.
    • Due to Chouza Akimichi being killed under suspicious circumstances and an Uchiha being the main suspect, the two families start feuding as well.
  • For Want of a Nail: A great part of the premise of this story; the first few scenes of Chapter 17 show the earliest points of divergence between this fic and canon, and when precisely the canon timeline became unsalvageable, culminating with this line: So a tiny pebble shifts the foundations of a mountain.
  • Advertisement:
  • The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: Mikoto acts more like Akito's older sister than her mother and she feels very much overshadowed by her.
  • Harmful to Minors: Akito, being from a gentler society, is appalled that children are permited to see grievously wounded and crippled patients and are exposed to other mentally scaring things.
  • Maternally Challenged: Mikoto Uchiha, in large part because she was only 16 when her first child was born. Thankfully Akito already has adult-level comprehension and 18 years of experience when she is born.
  • My Greatest Failure: Akito was initially cold to Kabuto, being influenced by how he was in canon. Due to her popularity this caused everyone in the Academy to shun and bully him, to the point where he considers leaving the Academy. Thankfully Akito eventually realizes that blaming a six-year-old for the actions of his possible future self is unfair, and decides to befriend him.
  • The Nicknamer: Akito as a baby. She does not know the language, therefore she nicknames the people that take care of her. Among others, Obito is Slave, Rin is Tattoo, Mikoto is Pretty Face, Fugaku is Frowny and Teyaki is Totally Smashed. Obito and Rin together are also Husband and Wife, long before they actually start dating.
  • Not So Stoic: Hagane-sensei, Konoha's hospital chief medic, very nearly loses it when an injured Akito is brought in after the Night of the Boiling Rain.
  • Odd Friendship: Fugaku and Teyaki. One is a high achieving, very proper Clan Head and the other is a baker with a fondness for alcool.
  • The Ojou: Akito.
  • Parents as People: Pretty much every ninja in Konoha that has children has to prioritize the war and their duty to the village before anything. Mikoto is the one portrayed in more details, especially as she feels utterly overshadowed by her daughter.
  • Pride: All the Uchihas are raised to be proud of their clan; their sense of superiority alienates them from the rest of Konoha.
  • Self-Insert Fic: By way of Reincarnation.
  • The Social Expert: Akito works tirelessly to repair the tarnished reputation of the Uchiha Clan in the Village, gaining an army of devoted minions among her peers, and even has influence on the Fourth Hokage (though, to be fair, he's her godmother's husband).
  • The Storyteller: Akito, to the point that whenever she tells a story to one of her little brothers all the kids in Konoha drop whatever they are doing and head to her house.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl:
    • Kushina and Mikoto have this dynamic.
    • Akito herself is a bit of a tomboy but has a very girly appearance due to the expectations put on her as heiress of her clan. Her female best friend, Emiko, is very girly, but her being a poor orphan means her appearance does not reflect that fact.
  • War Is Hell: Mikoto is dispatched to the front while heavily pregnant with first Akito and later Itachi. Everytime Akito visits, the hospital is full of dying or maimed shinobis. Genin as young as ten are sent off to fight.
  • Would Hurt a Child:
    • Danzo orders Akito's assassination when she is only seven-years-old.
    • Orochimaru, as per canon. He gets caught and arrested, but thanks to Danzo's machinations is kept out of prison, even if under heavy surveillance.
