with some crappy sketches
Okay, first of all thank you for the comment anon! I have seen this particular argument several times (for several different ships) and it always seems to be something the fans rally around. Now, I’m not saying I disagree with this…. but im basically saying I disagree with this.
Look, if either Sasuke or Naruto were a girl it would be a completely different story. The REASON Sasuke and Naruto are such soul mates is because they have this lasting bond of brotherhood and friendship. If one of them were a girl it would completely change the dynamics. They would have been set up as a couple from the beginning. It wouldnt be a shounen. Whoever was the girl would be a piece of trash in the eyes of fandom and the remaining guy would be shipped with the next best guy.
Look i’ve lived through a lot of fandoms, and I know where this argument stems from, I really do, but it’s flawed reasoning. It’s important that they’re guys, EQUALS, FOILS, not distracted by weird sexual tension that would surely be forced upon us every other goddam chapter if one was a girl.
I’m not saying they don’t have sexual tension as guys because oh. my god. They do. So much. It’s just that it’s not forced, not trying to be something it’s not. It just is, and if one of them were a girl, and it was a heterosexual relationship WHICH IS SO SO SO VERY RARELY AN EQUAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE (BECAUSE OF SOCIETY AND THE PATRIARCHY AND A LOT OF OTHER BULLSHIT) IT WOULD NOT BE WHAT IT IS. YOU’VE FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGED THE NATURE OF THEIR RELATIONSHIP.
And this is why you’ll never see me reblog Naruko ANYTHING. If I ever post genderbent SasuNaru they’re both gonna be girls okay because then the relationship remains on equal footing, the same boundaries and restrictions that would not be there if they were opposite genders. I’m sorry this got so long i’ve been holding this in for a while
THANK YOU AND GOODNIGHT!
You said it so beautifully that I now have a few tears in my eyes!
They’re really just… soul mates. Some may argue that Naruto just cares about everyone passionately, and while it’s true (he did risk his life to save Gaara), it’s still not on the same level with Sasuke. I mean, what kind of guy looks at a shooting star and places his hand over his heart, and thinks, “Sasuke..” Really? That sounds platonic to you? This is different from him being just being dedicated to saving a friend.
Their relationship is so complex that it really scares me sometimes to think about it. What I would have liked to see (and this is only for analysing purposes—I definitely wouldn’t want it to happen, perhaps as an alternative world that Kishi can draw later), is how either of them would react if the other dies by the hands of someone else. Naruto wanted to be the one who killed Sasuke so that he can die with him (hence the ‘we will both die’). I honestly think Naruto would lose it completely if Sasuke died. He’ll probably kill himself, the guilt from not being able to save—or die with—Sasuke becoming too much. As for Sasuke, I really can’t predict what Sasuke would do since Kishi doesn’t want to make him ‘too emotional’, and since, you know, all his precious people already died. So it can really just go both ways. He can either snap or just close off completely. Either way, it’ll still affect him greatly.
Literally all I want from a character arc resolution for sasuke is for him to just smile. Just once.
I wish this didn’t need to be said but,
don’t be an asshole about other people’s ships!
just like what you like and leave everybody else alone, alright?
this is like when you’re sitting with someone that you really like then you like touch knees or something and all of a sudden you feel all this energy going through both of you through this one point of contact
this gif is kinda like that
This will forever be my favorite gif
oh god i can’t handle the colors chosen for this
This is what happened when we touched
She lit up my world
Now this this has an ungodly amount of notes and my dash will never be the same, I feel the need to say this was made for a class project and it’s sasuke and naruto. ehehehee
you know that saying that when you sneeze it means someone is talking about you just imagine how many times naruto has talked about sasuke while he was gone and sasuke always breaking out into sneezing fits
