Kurono returns the embrace placing her arm around Ashley's shoulder listening to everyone's responses to Miki and Orochi. She wasn't a fan of all of the smoking going on around her but would keep her professionalism about it. " Yes it seems that there's a lively bunch this year. Between the Kekkei Genkai and the specialties, our students should be kept on their toes. My students work well together but one seems to have a thing for rushing in. Their teamwork will be tested more than ever." She responds hoping that their teamwork could overcome that weakness, especially in the second portion. That would prove to be a great challenge for them.
Asked about Haru, Kurono smiled proudly. " Haru-kun is making great progress in his career. I'm proud that he was recommended after such a short time. It's definitely an interesting position to be in having the children I've trained competing against my own child." She responds thinking of the conflicted feelings of wanting her child and her students to do well despite knowing how the Chuunin Exams ran. She was confident in both parties strength, trusting Mei's with training Haru.

Ashley also didn't really like the smell of smoke. She only smoked a few times in her life when she was younger, but gave it up after finding out it was bad for her. She has grown a hate for a smell of smoke. She would be considerate though and not say anything. Ashley would listen to everyone, and laugh a little once she heard Kurono. "Well, I have one that also like running in too and he is quite naive. He does keep the whole team lively though." She would say, hearing about Haru.
"Kurono is right. Haru is doing so well and I am glad I could help raise him! He is such a great person and he made a couple of nice friends within Mei's team from what I heard. I have strong hopes for him growing up and becoming a strong ninja." She would say smiling.
Mei could only nod to the compliments given about her team. "It seems every team from Konoha has that one that rushes in." Mei smiled thinking about Dargan and how he acted. "I can't wait until Aidou is doing his own Chunin Exams." Mei told the rest of the Jounin.
"The will of fire needs to be passed onto the next generation, and if we don't do such a thing. We'll have a repeat-" "There will always be wars in every generation. As long as we have shinobi, we'll find something to fight for." Miki's faint voice had an edge, knowing the irony in conversing about the skills of their genins. Accidentally burning her tongue from keeping the cigarette in place with her teeth, she quickly drew it into her cold fingers. Her queenly iciness could have rivalled Mei's. "The next time we see one another might be in the heat of battle, only a seer would ever know."
Miki sensed the wariness of tobacco smoke from two of the Konohagakure jonins, and in the spur of the moment the Kumogakure jonin indifferently pulled her packet of cigarettes from her shruiken holder. "My name is Miki Akira, by the way... Kumogakure jonin, I'm sure you're able to tell. " A cigarette was passed to Mei, still leaning across Orochi. "I can't really bad talk such a group of genin, having Kurono's son, a main branch Hyuuga and a very intelligent little girl." "Impressive, but so is my team. A storm release user, and the two genins other specialize in taijutsu." She dragged another deep haul from her cigarette into her lungs, suddenly feeling a surge of affection for her genin. The will of fire was a philosophy that seemed to only carry within Konohagakure shinobi, although all countries carried similar branches of thought. "And who's Aidou?"
"A genjutsu specialist, a Uzumaki, and a Terumi." Orochi murmured in an unreadable voice, also aware of the discomfort of the two other Konohagakure jonins. Still leaning back on his chair, the Kirigakure jonin lazily kicked the closest nearby window with his foot. Smoke funneled outside into the steely-gray sky. His amber gaze rose to see Eiko, a fellow Kirigakure jonin, arrive silently and wave. It was returned with another wave. The Konohagakure jonins seemed to converse with one another like family, as he vaguely listened to a boy who seemed to be an Uchiha.
Yuki shifted his eyes to stare at the smoking girl. Her words began to vex him. He scanned her, scanned her body whole with his eyes. "Talk like that may cause a war. Is that what you desire?" Yuki paused, his voice was a bit harsh. Taking a moment he gathered his thoughts and feelings together. "I don't believe in much, hell I don't believe in almost anything.... But I do believe that war is something one should not joke around with."

Sensing a slight hostility building, Kurono decides to nip it in the bud before it could grow into anything more. " Now now, this is no time for hostilities. If anything, the Chuunin exams show a sign of just what was fought so hard for during the Fourth Great war. Before then it wouldn't be nearly possible to see the five great villages gathering together under such occasion." She interjects reminding the others of just how the Chuunin exams showed how much things had changed since the previous generation. Each of them had been born into the generation that the united shinobi alliance had built in the wake of their fight against the Akatsuki. Prior to that, the closest thing to the nations meeting would be in moments of great strife. " Besides, it's not their combat prowess that will get them through this round, but instead how well they can gather information."
" You know she's right," Suzue's voice sounds out as she enters into the room responding tail end of the conversation they were having. She had heard some of the bits of the conversation before that but chose to steer clear of that bit. " I'm sure that most of them were expecting this to be all about their combat, but what they don't realize is that their ability to gather information from the enemy may end up being one of the most important skills that they learn in their ninja careers." Walking over to the group, she'd take a seat at the window sill rather than the couch.

Eiko would put away her flask and begin to listen to the other jounin about their genin. The information would be helpful should her genin reach the final part of the exam. She would also be listening to their talk of war.
"As long as we are here as shinobi there are bound to be wars. it's just a matter of when and why." Eiko would say coldly entering herself into the conversation. She knew very well how the alliance had formed but how easily it could've been ruined.
The Devil Returned 7/23/12
“The greatest thing the Devil ever did was make you people believe he didn’t exist; and you’re looking at him right now! I am the Devil himself! And all of you stupid, mindless people fell for it!”
Mei put the cigarette into her mouth nodding to Eiko's expression. "We of all people should know that War will eventually overwhelm us again. It will happen to us, and it will have to our descendants. It's just the way that the world works. Just like my grandfather always said,All war is deception. " Mei lit her cigarette as she blew out the last puff of smoke. If they were going to talk about war, Mei had a lot to talk about.
Kurono merely sighs and shakes her head at the two's feelings on war. She didn't agree with their sentiments at all. " Old ways of thinking like that that can't adjust to the times are exactly what cause the very wars you speak of," Kurono responds taking a drink from her can of green tea. While she couldn't speak for Eiko, it genuinely surprised her that Mei, a fellow Konoha ninja, could so readily accept the destruction of progress as nothing more than an inevitability." Remember, the generation that came before ours did fight a war but it was one different from any that came before. Rather than being one of division, it was one of unity and created the most powerful force that history has ever seen. It pathed the way for our own generation so what would we be leaving behind for our student's generation and the one that follows to allow the world to retrograde to the way of separation and division that it once was besides our own mess for them to have to clean up?" The world that they lived in as it was was one of progress. To return to the world as it once was would be to take a step backwards and spit on the sacrifices of those who died so that this union could live.

Despite the calm voices of the other jonins that collected after the Uchiha’s comment, Miki waved them away impatiently with a lazy flick of her wrist. She refused to be swayed. From previously leaning over Orochi, the Kumogakure jonin straightened into her usual rigid and proper stance. She examined the Konohagakure jonin like a new animal, with a curious wariness through vapourless eyes.
"Talk like that may cause a war. Is that what you desire?" “Talk like this shows that you’re provoking me.” Her black eyes were narrowed at the male, who had previously not introduced himself. You seem easy to offend. An expression of aggression altered the pale contours of her face, and her husky voice was subdued and curt. “All that I’ve said is wholly true, despite my words being broad, my fawnlet.” The satirical petname expanded with ironic deliberation. Hostility rose, and rioted through the smoky air like malaria. Her cigarette breath billowed in the milky sunlight, caught in the static between the two.
The chuunin exams were for not making new friends, they were for studying which villages were soon to become stronger or weaker. The minor villages seemed the weakest at the moment, especially Yukigakure, who showed up with a handful of inexperienced genin with a spoiled princess in the lovely mix. She let her hostility slip back her icy facade with a short breath. “War is never a joke, had I been kidding before? Uchiha, you should know about the tragedies of war. We are all adults; we can talk about these things without becoming frightened.” Peace was a war, and war was peace.
Orochi stayed silent, tapping the end of his cigarette into a silver tray that was littered from precedent smokers. He was a liberal man, believing that the world needed change... the ‘new’ laws set after the fourth shinobi war wouldn’t be able to sustain them for much longer. A war was soon to blossom, he sensed it in the earth and the air. He agreed with what his fellow Kirigakure jonin had said though... war sprang up like flowers where-ever shinobi were. But Kurono was correct as well, the assimilation of all the shinobi in the world was a different sort of war with peace within it.
ooc: all offenses roleplayed, other people have told me that miki is... whatever you call it.

Ashley would sigh, as this argument was getting nowhere. "You know, there isn't a point on arguing this. We are off duty, we are supposed to be able to relax and a good time. You guys just seem to want to focus on serious things even off duty. I doubt we will be in war anytime soon. The kids will be able to do good and all move on eventually. As long as every village and country can keep their ties bonded, we have nothing to worry about. So I think we should all stop talking about this. Mei, you should not be so serious all the time.Right now it's time to focus on the kids and watch them shine, not to bicker about war. The rest of you shouldn't continue this stupid argument." Ashley would say, as she gave another sigh shaking her head. "Seriously..."
Mei burst into laughter from Ashley's statement. "I've never seen you so serious!" Mei smirked blowing the smoke from her nose. She stood up taking the cigarette from her mouth as she walked toward the exit. "I think I'll go do something." Mei said throwing the cigarette into the trash. Hostility was something she didn't want in Kumogakure.
Yuki sighed. There was no convincing this girl that war was a bad thing, and something he didn't want to live to see. Sure it happens but he just didn't want to deal with it. All the killing, all the blood shed, at what point? To move the lines of the map. Yeah to move the lines of the map. "I'm familiar with with the old way. I wear the armor of my ancestors. I don't wish to live the life of bloodshed they had to." Yuki was blunt with his voice, looking down at the ground now almost murmuring. "As of yet." He whispered to himself.
“And since when were we arguing?” Miki put in gently, tapping the end of her cigarette against a silver tray, still looking at the Konohagakure jonins with a tilted head. “I state the true fact that fellow shinobi are the ones to start wars, and to die in wars, and in this I caused a controversy - and maybe even a little bit of a tainted reputation for myself.” She watched as the Uchiha lowered his gaze and admitted to not wanting to live within the cesspool of a desperate history that his forbearers did. The conversation ended there, as it seemed. The enigmatic woman arched her back in a short stretch before rising to full height. Miki gave the room a curt smile that edged the boundaries of a smirk, and strode out the doors. A swell of gray smoke followed her out, and her steady footsteps echoed through the corridor.
Orochi exhaled a tranquil sigh, not wishing to become involved with any of this. He erased the remnants of prickling tension by tipping his head upwards to the whitewashed walls to where a standard clock ticked, and stated expressionlessly, “Our genins should be finished the exams very soon.”
