HMD + Notes

If you notice any problems with my characterization of Shikamaru, drop me a line!  Same goes for any suggestions.  Comments are screened, ip logging is turned off.  I like feedback.  Thanks!

30 second spoiler-free personalityCollapse )

--Shikamaru is from the end of chapter 342, despite the fact that many of my icons are pre-timeskip.  Finding/making post timeskip icons is hard!
--Due to the institute's control over chakra usage, he's only able to use the sympathetic form of his family's jutsu, as described here.
--Thanks to an MU session, Shikamaru now experiences sensory overload while trying to concentrate if he believes the safety of his friends or teammates depends on his intelligence. The strength of the overload is relative to the stress of the situation and how vital he considers his input.  He hasn't figured out what triggers the effects.

The cipher Shikamaru set up is a clumsy variation of an autokey cipher based on the passkey konohagakure. Using it is simple but a pain in the ass quite time-consuming, based on the tabula recta he gave everyone. It's easier to crack than a properly made autokey, but it'd still take multiple messages. A character familiar with cryptography will recognize the form of cipher and probably be able to tell that it was built by someone with no formal knowledge of the subject.

The simple tool is here.

Characters with the key: Shikamaru, Sai, Kakashi, Naruto
