hamelin-born asked: Ever read Bujold, by the way? I hesitate to introduce more fandoms into this, but Yoko would probably take the life of Miles Naismith Vorkosigan as - well, inspiration. The Uchiha!kids are probably raised on Lord of the Rings, switch over to Discworld, and then to the Vorkosigan!verse... Or, if you want to be hardcore, Game of Thrones. The latter series are probably *excellent* introductions to politics. Although they would lead to some very *strange* Uchiha traditions/mannerisms...
I got up until the books where Miles’ clone featured heavily - I’ve always meant to go back and start reading them again. Yoko absolutely takes inspiration from Miles - keep talking, never let them see you sweat, and to hell with the rules and regulations.
I’ve got this image in my head, by the way, of itty-bitty Yoko sitting with a transcriber in Iwa T&I unit, talking about all the stories they know and don’t want to forget. (Which is how several Florence and the Machine songs made it into the public lexicon.)
I’m suddenly picturing a GoT-ified version of the Sage of Six Paths story. It’ll be an unholy abomination, and within a century be the most commonly known version in all the shinobi lands.
