Title: Three Swans Author: Pyro Notes: I blame this completely on icedark_elf. She wrote a wonderful story, and then this idea inundated my brain. There were once three sisters. The Three Swans of Whirlpool. Then war broke out, and Iwa, their neighboring country, decided that Whirlpool should be annexed. The three sisters, rather than become slaves of Iwa, fled. The Red Swan, Kushina, went to Konoha. There she married a man named Namikaze Minato. The White Swan, Isola, fled the hidden continent. She met and married a man named Derek Strife, who took her to his people high in the mountains, in Nibleheim. The Black Swan, Mariah, also fled to the outlands. She married a riverboat captain by the name of Hezikiah Fair, and set up house in the swamplands of Gongagga. And so it was, that the Three Swans had sons, and the sons had dreams, and the Gods decreed that all would have hardships, and one day, the cousins would all meet. And woe betide those who should oppose them.
