25 Butterfly Effect

[Author Note]

Is Nobara alive or cooked?

I'm getting mixed opinions about her, so vote below.




Three Years Later: Naoya

I know that I won't be the strongest.

It's something that I've had to come to terms with after all of these years.

That title is reserved for my older brother.

So why did Naohiro leave?

Every time he is brought up, father shuts down the conversation. Ever since the mission that he was sent on, father has had a personality shift.

He works late and has been taking his job as clan head seriously. He knows something about Naohiro that isn't being told to everyone.

It wasn't like Naohiro was the future clan head, but he was a core component of the Zenin clan. With Jinichi's death and Naohiro's departure, the Zenin clan has been in a state of chaos.

The Jujutsu higher-ups have tried to label him as a rogue cursed user, but father has been defending him and has been holding them back.

When the tournament ended, I looked at myself and decided to change who I was. I was no longer the arrogant child, unaware of the world around me.

I recently turned fourteen and had been training harder than I had my entire life.

Around a year ago, I reached semi-grade one status. Even though I hadn't been enrolled in Jujutsu Tech, I was granted the title of a semi-grade-one sorcerer at thirteen. Being the future clan head has its benefits.

I didn't care if I couldn't stand with the strongest, but I sure as hell am not going to be weak.

Rather than comparing myself to the unreachable mountain Satoru Gojo or Naohiro, I set my sights on the fastest sorcerer alive.

I was going to become fast enough so father wouldn't be able to perceive me until it was too late. If I can't become the fastest sorcerer alive after surpassing my father, I'll become the second fastest.

I am currently a member of the Hei. Since Jinichi is dead, Ogi became the new leader of the Hei. I hate that old snake, which is why...

Two small voices speak. "Big brother Naoya!"

I smile to myself. "What are you two doing here?"

How someone could treat these two children horribly is beyond me. I couldn't imagine bullying my adorable little cousins.

Since Ogi disowned his two daughters, I became an older brother figure to them. Who knew that I would be the one to take care of two children?

Maki and Mai.

Satoru Gojo

Turns out the freak up and left his clan.

*Ugh*, Why can't I leave this stupid shit? I'm tired of all of these old people and their traditions.

I can single-handedly fold my entire clan, so the whole 'let's control the future strongest sorcerer' plans didn't work out for them.

I've read stories that made more sense than clan politics.

Next month, I'll enroll in Jujutsu Tech, and I better see Naohiro there so I can kick his ass for that punch he gave me seven years ago.

I've picked up a few techniques of my own that I'm just waiting to use on him.

If this is a repeat of him not showing up like in the past, I'm going to lose my mind. It's like every time I want to interact with him, he just up and disappears.

I'm starting to question if his technique is the Limitless and not mine.

*Pft* Nah, his cursed technique is even more overpowered than mine. I swear, I was born with the Six Eyes AND the Limitless, and he was still able to punch me.

It just pisses me off. All that talk about 'being the future strongest' just to get knocked out like a complete bum made me realize something.

If I stand around and do nothing, I'll be left behind.

Previously, I was simply learning techniques, thinking everyone was below me, but ever since that time, I've dedicated myself to being able to knock that stupid smirk off of his face.

It might be arrogant of me to say, but I think I might be ahead of the Zenin. I was able to do it. Something only the smallest percentage of people in the world of Jujutsu can do.



Domain expansion.

Heh, and when I finally figure out the reverse cursed technique, I'll be the strongest sorcerer on the planet. "HAHAHAHAHAHA. *Ahem*."

I let my thoughts out loud.

Who cares if people think I'm crazy? They're nothing but weak.

Now that I think about it, I'm probably the third or second strongest person in the world right now.

There was that Yuki Tsukumo lady who became the first special-grade sorcerer in a long time, and Naohiro.

I give a wide smile.

It won't be long before I'm at the top of the totem pole, so you better watch out, Naohiro, since I'm going to surpass you.


I'm finally done with my training. I don't have any more time to waste before I enroll at Jujutsu Tech. I can't wait to see everyone's development!

I'll also be able to meet Maki and Mai and see how far Gojo and Naoya have progressed.

The past few years have been nothing but running, training, and pain. I haven't felt this much excitement in a long time.

I'm almost ready for whatever Kenjaku throws at me now. Uraume? I'll send them back to the Heian era. Toji? Should've stayed with Megumi. Kenjaku? Should've killed me three years ago.

After walking for a while, I start to see a familiar place.

As I walk up to the clan compound that I haven't seen in three years, I give it a smile. "Man, it's good to be back. Even though Ogi is probably still alive."

Now is the time for canon to start.
