| Prologue: Shadow of the Sharingan |
- Somewhere - Sometime -
A shadow with long hair: Well, how did it go ?
A spiky shadow: Just as planned, it awakened... but we lost one of the eyes to another boy and the vessel itself is near death. Even if we infuse him with Hashirama Cells, he might never wake up.
A shadow with long hair: What about his performance ?
A spiky shadow: Above 200%, surpassed Uchiha Shisui's levels.
A shadow with long hair: Then it's worth the risk. Infuse him with Hashirama's power... and one more thing, continue monitoring his "friends" and people close to him, he will have questions when he awakens... and we will give him the answers, whether they will be pleasant or not.

| Chapter I: A boy awakens to Nightmare ! |
- Dark Cave - In the middle of night -
Obito: ...where is this ? It's dark in here, where is everybody ? Ah the light ! Huh !? This, this is our village ! Everybody, Rin, Kakashi, Sensei. I'm back, hey everybody, 'Phasing', wha... I phased through them !? Wait, Rin can't you see me ? Can't you hear me !? Ugh (my body is heavy and I'm falling beyond the ground !!!) No, why this, this darkness, no, everyone don't leave me, I want to stay with everybody a bit longer ! NOOOOOOOOOO !
Obito: 'Pant', 'Pant', 'Pant', darkness... am I dead ?
A shadow with long hair: Not quite. To the outside world, yes, but in reality, no.
Obito: Huh ? Who are you ? !!! Those eyes glittering in darkness, yet their unfamiliar shape, could they be MS ?
A shadow with long hair: Yes, at least I don't have to explain that. I am Uchiha Madara.
Obtio: Uchiha... Madara ?
Madara: Impudence, to think that Shinobi World and my clan have already forgotten about me. Very well, I will remind them of myself soon enough.
Obito: Wait, where am I ?
Madara: In my hideout, it have been half a year, since your supposed death.
Obito: !? Wha ? What about the war ? What about sensei ? What about Kakashi ?! What about RIN !?!?! (trying to stretch my hand towards the shadow with red light, I realized the truth, that my body was no longer the same). This !? Did, did you cut my arms off ?! And what are those plants growing out my body ?! Answer me !
Madara: I don't have to answer anything, but since your condition has stabilized... Zetsu, show him everything that happened, I'm leaving in order to make other preparations.
Zetsu: Ah little boy, are you ready to embrace the truth ? But first let me put you to sleep.
- A week later -
Madara: ...are you awake ? Have you opened your eyes ? Have you found what you searched for ?
Obito: ...awake ? With open eyes ? What I searched for !? Don't give me this shi*, I don't believe in anything you have showed me, you are just a villain that tries to manipulate me !
Madara: If I wanted to bind you to my will, I would simply use the power my eyes. All I showed you is truth, the way this wretched world works, the way it is, the way it was and the way it will be. It's time to wake up from foolish dreams, they are nothing more than illusions covering up ugly reality.
Obito: No ! I don't believe you, I never will !
Zetsu: Ahhhh, this whole weak nothing by denial. Maybe we should retrieve the eye and dispose of the boy ?
Obito: !! You want to steal my remaining eye !?
Madara: Hahaahahaha, your eye ? From the very beginning it was mine.
Madara: Haven't you noticed ? Didn't you find it strange, that you were the only one from the Uchiha that had problems with eyes from birth ?
Obito: That, my eyes were just sensitive to dust, nothing more.
Zetsu: In denial again, ehhhhh, this will take awhile.
Madara: Very well, if images don't convey to you, then perhaps words will. Your eyes were originally main. Those are the eyes I was born which. Ones that I trained and then, as the first in history, proceeded beyond Sharingan, to MS. I gained tremendous power, but there was a price for it. In time the user would become blind, regardless of using them, what's more the more I used them the faster I was loosing light. The only way to avoid it, was to switch which my brother's eyes. Unfortunately, only I gained a new power, EMS... I was already blind, so it didn't work for my brother. There was no way to give them light again... that is until I have awoken to the Circle of life. Life, Death and finally Reincarnation. After understanding them completely, I theorized, that if I were to lead my old eyes through some sort of reincarnation, they would regain their light. Of course, real reincarnation wouldn't work, since there existed the possibility of them loosing their powers, my power that they were filled which.
Obito: A reincarnation of eyes ? Are you fooling which me, I never heard of something as ridiculous as that !
Zetsu: Naturally, since no one ever tested it, well, until noooowwwwww.
Madara: In short, I implanted my eyes, while you where still in a womb of your mother, so that the eye as well as you would become one and the same, of course with my spiritual power in them. You were born with light in you eyes, but even after birth you still needed time to accustom to them and there was no sign of Sharingan or my power being present within you... but finally they have awakened and now you are here. Everything is in place.
Obito: Then, I'm nothing more than your sick experiment, just like that guy !?
Zetsu: Oh please, don't put it that way. I'm more of a refined being just as you, kukukuku.
Madara: You were merely an attempt, in order to test the theory and prepare for the future. Of course you are still valuable. Your eyes hold greater power than any member of the current Uchiha clan and you have reasons, similar to ours to change this forsaken world. Join us, we have cookies.
Obito: I... I can't, I will not ! I can't forsaken everyone, even if I have no happiness myself.
Madara: It is not to forsaken them it is to save them.
Madara: Have you not see the misery that this world brought upon the ones you cared, upon yourself ?! Don't you want to change this world, this cursed reality ? If you still can't believe, then maybe you will believe your(my) own eye. Take him Zetsu and show how the world and his loved ones look, how the world revolves and how much it have to be changed.
- The next day -
Madara: Are you finally awake ? Can you finally see the world for what it is and not how people paint it with lies and empty words ?
Obito: 'Raising Head' I'm fully awake and I can clearly see. I will do what needs to be done - worlds spoken with great calm, with the eye that shined with light like never before, it was an answer to his chosen path and determination, it was the key to achieve all that he needed to, it was the awakening of the Mangekyou Sharingan -.
Madara: Hmph, we will start the training immediately. At day, you will be training with me. At night, while asleep, Zetsu will pour you with every battle he has recorded, which every tactic he has seen, learn well and you will be unstoppable. But, before that, let me tell you about my plan, in which the world will not be filled with false dreams, hopes and empty words, but a world of one truth of one final illusion. Let me tell you about the Moon's Eye plan.
