Well hey there angelface!
How in the heck did you end up here?
That doesn't matter, I'm glad you're here. Now let's see if I can keep your attention...
To start off, I don't see myself actually writing anything on here for various reason, I don't have a lot of free time, my attention can't handle that commitment and I don't particularly trust my writing skills. But what I DO happen to plan on doing here is reading, reviewing, favoriting and stuff like that :)
Now that THAT is out of the way... A little bit about myself.
The main focus of interest here will more than likely be Naruto. Perhaps among some other obscure things I find along the way. Such as Avatar: The Last Airbender and Harry Potter. But, I mostly surf through the Naruto archives.
Fun fact: I don't actually watch/read Naruto. Most of what I know is through Fanfiction and Google searches. And to be honest, I won't be starting to read/watch it either, because it seems like I would be setting myself up for disappointment. But that's an entire different issue.
That being said, my view on the characters and their personality's could be askew, but guess what? Don't care!
Now, if there's something that would bother me, it would defiantly be character bashing. This is coming from a former character basher, I realize it makes you seem like a giant idiot. So, when it comes to Naruto characters, I like most of them, as they all seem to have interesting back stories and quirks to them. Which causes them to be endearing and likable and there would be no valid reason to hate on fictional characters.
I do happen to have some soft spots for the following characters.
Sakura is defiantly my favorite. She always has been, even when she was in her stupid "Sasuke-kun!" mode. Which is crazy, no offense to Sakura but she was pretty annoying. Granted, I was twelve at the time and was obviously lacking skills in the character decretion department. It's kind of sad, really. Sakura was a shy, picked on kid and she seemed to have a really sweet personality before the whole Sasuke fiasco happened between her and Ino. I really wished she would have stayed the quiet, sweet kid, not like another Hinata but just...more focused on ninja work. Because looking back, let's face it. Twelve year old Sakura was pathetic. Like, honestly its embarrassing to watch and just ugh. All that fangirling over some kid who seemingly has enough issues in his life. If she really wanted to impress Sasuke, she would've focused maybe just a little (okay a lot) more on training.
Perhaps she has a little bit of an excuse when being compared to her teammates. Sasuke comes from the Uchiha clan, Naruto is the Kyuubi vessel, heck even Kakashi is famous! And Sakura? She comes from nothing, no special traits, no prestigious clan, just a plain old civilian girl. Plus. Plus, she was twelve/thirteen! Let's back up a moment and think about when you were that particular age. Uh, yeah. That's what I thought. No one is normal at that age. No one, I tell you! Even still, that's all in the past.
And then something in this chick snaps, Sakura realizes 'Wait a tick- maybe I should actually do something with my life.' She figures out she is being pretty pathetic, but she is willing to change that. And what a change she goes through, many hard, long training sessions under the tutelage of Tsunade, Sakura makes something of herself. And the development she goes under is pretty awesome. She shows that hard work can bring you places and make you an admirable person, which she is. :) And while I have always liked Sakura, timeskip Sakura is by far the best. And I will continue to admire her because she is totally kick butt and awesome and even though she has a temper, she's also very kind. She's gorgeous, has a charming personality and a passion when it comes to her friends and protecting her village and I think it's just really encouraging to see. I just want everybody to know that she is an absolutely fabulous character.
My next favorite character would be Naruto. I absolutly adore his positive outlook on life. It's like nothing can bring him down. And I just want to take his younger self and give him a hug. Heh, Naruto starts out as a slightly annoying, no actually really annoying. Talk about opening your mouth at a lot of the wrong times. (I think a lot of the characters in that show were annoying at age 12. I also think they were all going through their awkward stage.) but he's still adorable kid and grows into a handsome, more matured young individual. Quality.
Gaara of the Sands would be next. I won't lie to you people, he is scary when he is in his psychotic stage. Like wow. But I really do appreciate how Gaara's character develops, tragic childhood, crazy (yeah right, crazy does not even begin to describe this child!) stage and then the stage where he connects with Naruto and eventually realizes he can redirect his path of life. So good! He is quite gorgeous.
Tenten - Poor Tenten, she's so underrated. Also, kind of a mystery background wise. But I think she's cool. I also think she & Sakura would make good friends as they seem kind of similar. They both come from civilian backgrounds, both want to become legendary kunoichi (true, Tenten wanted to accomplish this before Sakura did, but still, the thought that count, right?) and both are probably underestimated one way or another. I don't know, I'm glad Sakura and Ino made up, because it's so incredibly stupid to end a friendship because of a boy. But I just think Tenten and Sakura would get along well. Sorry, kind of turned out like as a mini TentenxSakura friedship thing. But yes, Tenten is my second favorite kunoichi, because she seems pretty legit.
Hinata - She's so cute! I'm glad she found her confidence. Now she needs that 20 seconds of courage and just straight up tell Naruto (Because obviously telling him when you're all about to die isn't enough. Poor girl.) 'Hey buddy, I like you!' Because let's be honest, No one has ever accused him of being the brightest crayon in the box. So yes, a bit of bluntness would be in order. Go for it Hina! ;3 LOL anyway...
Temari - Two words. Kick and butt.
Ino - Oh my, I used to hate and hate and hate and hate on poor Ino here. But now that I look at her, I think she's actually really cool, she's beautiful and I am pretty jealous of her hair. Because Ino's hair is so gorgeous...and so is she :)
Sasuke - Ah Sasuke-chan. So when he's not being a complete jerk face, he actually seems pretty descant. I think...but whatever. I know the sweet little boy is still there. I don't think he's a bad person and someone just needs to kick him in the face and yell at him. (Naruto.) Once that same somebody drags his sorry self back home, another someone needs to follow through in showing some kindness. (Sakura.) When those two get it through his dense skull that yes, he has friends that are there for him...I honestly think he could be somewhat normal. Somewhat. Then Kakashi and Sai, along with him, Naruto and Sakura can establish Team 7. (Because Team 7 is best team. Don't even try to deny that! ;) And that is my genius plan for Sasuke's recovery. It probably sounds crazy, but I don't care. I just wish he could find his inner peace, that's all really.
Kankuro - The Sand Sibs are the bomb. Words cannot express their awesomeness. Plus, I kind of like Kankuro's kitty ear hat...thing. And yes, I suppose his personality is pretty cool too.
Neji - So I will let you all in on a little secret, the very first time I saw Neji, I thought he...was a she. And I also thought he was an ugly girl, but then when he/she talked...well, it was just embarrassing.
Heh, so he's not a girl. Good one, me. You really know how to pin-point the genders, eh? Or not.
But in my defense, I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person who thought this. Though it is kind of unfair that he has the prettiest looking hair and he's not even a girl. I mean what the what!? Whatever. Neji is one of those character who is always uptight, always polite and you just want him to crack a smile or something. But from a few clips I have seen on YouTube, he can actually be kind of funny. Something about Neji Chronicles and when Team Kakashi and Team Gui are coming back from the Sands, his reactions are hilarious. So I like to think of Neji as the secretly funny character.
Rock Lee - He is so entertaining :) So passionate about everything! And his personality is really sweet. YOSH!
Sai - Oh goodness, this kid is so blunt about everything! You can't help but wonder if he actually knows what he is talking about or...ha, I don't know. I find it endearing/amusing/kind of sad that he needs to read a book on every possible human reaction. But at least he still tries, yes? Quite an entertaining character that one, if I say so myself.
Kakashi - Let's take a moment and admire how freaking cool Kakashi is? I mean if that guy was my teacher, wow. It would be hard to concentrate. Even if he is just a little bit of a jerk, I think he means well.
Kiba - He's a cool cat. No...wait. Forget the cat pun. No but really, Kiba is awesome and I don't even know why. Maybe has something to do with the rough around the edges attitude but has a soft spot for dogs. Heh, that persona is pretty endearing. As is Kiba, seriously, he's probably as cool as Sakura is. And that is pretty cool. (In my own humble opinion ;)
Ships I Sail.
GaaraxSakura - Call it crack but I can see this happening. They both had lonely (yes, some lonelier than others, but lonely nonetheless.) childhoods, rejected of love and are in need of love in their lives. Sakura is one of those people who has that compassionate, empathetic, friendly, and just all around sweet persona about her. Ha, of course when she is not on her crazy mean streak. And I can see her reaching out to Gaara and helping him out of his shell. I just wish that these two would interact!
NejixSakura - I like to think they would start out as sparring partners or something. Somehow Neji would take notice of her (like say, after her fight with Sasori) and then a beautiful friendship or something else would start. As you can see this is super sound reasoning and may as well say, 'because!' But ah, who cares. I just like them.
NarutoxSakura - I've had a lot of trouble trying to figure out just how the heck I like these two. Final answer: besties. Honestly, these two are so adorable and I love, love, love their friendship, so much. Why ruin a perfectly beautiful friendship with romance? That and Hinata would not be impressed, not impressed at all.
SaixSakura - While most of the time trying to envision Sai in any kind of romantic relationship is completely ridiculous. Because it's Sai and he is so socially naive in everything. If he were to be crushing on anyone, it would defiantly be Sakura, seeing as she is probably the closest female he has in his life. Plus it would be kind of cute if he approached her and asked why he feels so strange around her. Pshh. Sai, you poor, poor kid.
Fact That You Probably Wouldn't Care About But Imma Tell You Anyway: I like the idea of SaixSakuraxSasuke or SasukexSakuraxSai or however it works. Sakura would be in the middle and Sasuke would not be impressed with his 'replacement' moving on his girl. Meanwhile Sai thinks that Sasuke is not at all suited for his affections and he finds himself to be the better man. And they would have all these cryptic arguments over her. As for me? I like it all!
KibaxSakura - I really wish these were two were at least friends (Are they? Probably not. How sad is that...) But I think they could work okay, or it may be me being slightly biased because I have got a lot of love for both of these two. So...I instantly assume they are meant to be. Oh well, their still awesome!
KakashixSakura - So I kind of like the idea of Kakashi being somewhat flirty with her. Maybe just a little. That or he feels pretty protective of her. Haha maybe this is just me.
SasukexSakura - My first thought about these two is a firm 'absolutely not.' Because if they start off a relationship with Sakura bending over backwards for him and Sasuke treating her like she's some sort of annoyance, then you are just setting yourself for one, giant heartbreak. Not to mention a bit of abusive relationship. As much as I don't want to admit it, and as much I want to put my faith in him so badly. Unfortunatly I can see Sasuke's anger/whatever other issues getting the better of him. And who would be the easy target, besides Naruto? Sakura.
No, first Sakura would have to get over her 'love' (I don't think she actually loved him, I mean come on! She was twelve. What do twelve year old little girls know about love?!) for Sasuke and they would have to start off their relationship with a friendship. So, no more "Sasuke-kun" (At least in a fangirl type of way. Maybe if it were just a friendly, force of habit thing, then maybe it's alright.) from Sakura. And Sasuke have to come to respect and acknowledge her as a fellow shinobi and friend, an equal. He would also have to realize that Sakura is indeed a lady and freaking gorgeous one at that. They would have to start from scratch, get over the initial awkwardness of Sasuke's return, form a friendship bond and go from there. Once they gain a mutual respect for one another, then maybe something could happen.
But that's the only way I'll read about them, because I refuse to read about an abusive Sasuke who only see's Sakura as a baby making machine. There is no way I will read about that. Seriously it makes me super mad to even think about that particular theme.
He's better than that, he may not look it sometimes, but I just know that he is way better than that. And I don't know if it's just me with this one, but I love reading about the kinder side of Sasuke. Ha, I know it seems hard to believe that kid even has a 'kinder' side, but I believe he does. It's just hard to find under his 'I-Don't-Care-About-Anything' facade. But it's there. And I like reading about it! I also like to think it would be Sasuke who would be making the first move. Haha, and the tables have been turned!
ShikamaruxSakura - This pairing is slowly growing on me. I can see them having hidden chemistry, that or they would make good friends. Either way, it would be pretty cute.
DeidaraxSakura - This is crazy and just came up recently and I know, I have stated some pretty cracky couples, but I think this one takes the cake. Like, goodness, this could never work! For one, I believe Deidara is dead? Not to mention they are on the opposite sides of loyality and all that other stuff. But sometimes, its just fun/interesting to make up scenarios that could possibly justify them. Like perhaps they meet at a stalemate, one or the other catches them in a moment of weakness or of course, the age old, Sakura is captured. Heh, I don't know, once you get over the fact of 'hmm, we are mortal enemies and probably shouldn't associate with eachother.' I think they could get along, they both have fiery, passionate personalities and for some reason I can just see them being friends of sorts. Or even something else, whatever ships your sail. Even though Deidara is one crazy MOFO, albeit an awesome, good looking MOFO. But still crazy. Art is a bang, yeah! Right. So anyway, not a huge fan of the Akatsuki, but if I were to read about Sakura paired with any of them, I would read about her and Deidara. Because #yolo!*
Please note that '#yolo' is not an actual reason and one should not justify ones action by stating this phrase. Thank you.
SasorixSakura - I can't explain why I put this couple here...but they could be fascinating. Like perhaps if something went totally wrong during the battle they had. I don't know, but I think they are interesting. Hehe or maybe I am just crazy.
NarutoxHinata - They would be really adorable! Naruto & Sakura shouldn't ruin their lovely brother/sister bond by romance. So, it would be cute if he turned his amorous feelings were directed towards Hinata. It would defiantly make her day (Or year...or life :) and I think they would be well suited for each other.
ShinoxHinata - I don't even know how to explain this, but I just like it. The end.
ShikamaruxIno - So I don't have a super particular reason for these two. Heh, Shika may be a bit of my male shipping bicycle, just a bit. Kind of like how Sakura is my ulitmate go to shipping bicycle.
ShikamaruxTemari - Shikamaru is a pimp. Temari is B.A and together they are awesome.
RockLeexTenten - I think they would match up well :3
ChoujixIno - I think if these two got together, it would show a lot of character growth for Ino. Because every character needs that, yes? It would be even more adorable if it were Ino who was doing the confessing. Ah gosh, just imaging that...how wonderful.
Ships I Do Not Sail.
Perhaps you could pick up from above that I am an avid Sakura shipper. She just has an awesome personality that I just seems to go nicely with a lot of other personalities. While I'm all for keeping the peace and I'm not a fan of bashing, there are certain pairings I am not okay with.
SasukexAnybody (besides Sakura) - The SasukexHinata pairing especially ticks me off. (I seriously hate it with the intensity of ten thousand suns.) SasukexIno makes no sense at all. Same with SasukexTenten. To be honest, I can't really see Sasuke with anyone else besides Sakura. Plus no one's accused that guy of being overly social.
GaaraxAnybody (besides Sakura) - It's pretty much the same thing with Sasuke. I think think Hinata, not to mention Gaara, would be too quiet for any kind of relationship to work between them. Plus she is entirely to dedicated to Naruto to move onto another guy. InoxGaara...ohmygosh. Why? I just...can't. Yeah...don't have much else to say on that.
NejixHinata - Their cousins, are they not? If that doesn't spell sketchy, I don't what does. Although the big brother protectiveness Neji seems to have for Hinata is endearing, I think that's the extent of it. As it should be.
KibaxHinata - I think Kiba and Hinata have what Naruto and Sakura have. A strong brother/sister bond which shouldn't be ruined with romance.
SasukexNaruto - I firmly believe these two aren't gay for each other. (Nothing against gay people, believe me.) It just makes me sad to think about this couple, because how awkward would that be for Sakura? Or the rest of Team 7 for that matter. It would feel to much as if they are leaving Sakura out again and I hate it when that happens. Sasuke and Naruto just have a brother type of bond, but that's it.
And maybe you picked up from this list I'm not a big Hinata shipper. Or Ino shipper for that fact. Nothing against these two, it's just I think they are best of with particular people. That doesn't make them any less awesome though!
Sheldon Cooper & Penny - The on and off, fighting half the time, lack of chemistry what so ever between Leonard and Penny is not cute. It's annoying. Meanwhile the seemingly rocky friendship but you know that they truly care about each other, clever & witty banter, and the smoking hot chemistry between Sheldon and Penny is awesome and I love it.
AangxKatara - They are so adorable together :3
ZukoxKatara- I love how their relationship devolved, the whole enemy-I-want-nothing-to-do-with-you turned into what they are now is awesome to watch. Although I still don't know which ship I am - Kataang or Zutara. Because duh, Kataang was obvious, and I am glad it happened. But then again, I saw some Zutara and it actually threw me off at the end. They are both good ships, but CHA! So hard to choose >.
AangxToph - If Zutara where to happen, Aang's alternate love interest could be her. Besides, they are kind of cute together :)
SokkaxToph - These two are hilarious together and apart!
So I have been thinking on the Kataang vs. Zutara shipping wars stuff and I think I have come to a somewhat more solid conclusion...
Behold! The meaningless opinion of mine! [X haha. Moving on.
I still like both ships. Kataang was hinted since the first episode. So, it was obvious that Aang was going to be Katara's love interest. What was interesting about Kataang is that we saw how Aang felt right away, but it was uncertain how Katara felt. Her motherly nature could confuse us with reciprocation of Aang's feelings. At least that is what I saw, Katara cared deeply for Aang, she would fight for him, stand up for him, be there for him, and they happened to share a handful of awww inducing moments. But for awhile, I couldnt decide if Katara liked Aang back or not. But as the show progressed I got the feeling that indeed, Katara does happen to feel the same. She would show signs of jealousy a couple of times, she shared kisses with Aang that were very sweet, and I guess it just took time for her to sort out her feelings and thoughts. Im glad that Kataang happened in cannon, because Aang really did love Katara, and it would be devastating for him if Katara was to be paired off with another guy. And that would be super, super, super sad to watch Aangs's heart be ripped to pieces like that. So yes, Kataang for win! :)
But then there is Zutara. The first couple of books, there was not much interaction between them. But when there was, it would raise questions in my head. Starting from Zuko's oh-so-smooth line of "I'll save you from the pirates." Even if this was said in such a tone of voice that he seemed to be taunting her...what followed is what caused me to raise a brow. He goes and ties her to a tree...and then he circles around her, trying to bargin with her to get information in where Aang was. "Try to understand I'm trying to regain something that I have lost, my honor. Maybe in return I can restore something that you have lost..." The times I had seen Zuko, he seemed like the type to yell at people and demanding them to tell him whatever he wants to know. But this seems like a new method of interrogation for our favorite Firenation Prince. Then of course there is the infamous cave scene between the two. At this point, I felt like this could be a mark of a start of a bond of friendship between Zuko and Katara. Too bad Zuko had to ruin it with his betrayel.
Which leads us up to Zuko's joining of the Gaang. I felt like this was awesome character development for Zuko, and I was excited. But then Katara would just not let up on the threats, glares, overall being kinda rude...and thought to myself, how they need to mend there friendship NOW! Because I saw Zukos's sincerity and it made me upset when Katara couldn't see it. So when the episode Southern Raiders rolled around, I was jacked! Finally, they overcame the betrayal and they can move on. And it seemed after that, Zuko and Katara became the dynamic duo of the century. They were awesome to watch work together when it came to combat. And the scene when it is Zuko and Katara vs. Azula was epic. I think I cried a little for Azula. Her character ends so...unclosed, I feel. But anyway. How Zuko jumps in front of the lightening bolt, how Katara gets in gear with her awesome waterbending, and then finally she healed him, it was all beautiful. And the soundtrack just added to that entire scene. But yes, At the end of the third book, I just saw all these points to Zutara and it kind of threw me off for a bit. I was thinking "was this not supposed to end in Kataang?! What is going on??" But alas, Kataang was the ending. But Zutara would certainly make an interesting relationship as well. It is all awesome :) and yes. That is my take on it. Thanks for enduring this ramble!
Also, for reasons unknown to me, I have taken an interest to Harry Potter, so of course I must inform you of my shipping views!
I always thought it was going to end up in Harry and Hermione. And I really, really, really wish it could have. No, I do not have anything against Ginny, she seems all well and fine. But she just makes me slightly disappointed because, it was her, the fan girl that got the hero in the end and ugh. No.
I am still slightly confused where Harry's feelings came in for her. It seemed like in the sixth book/movie (at least I think it was the sixth...sorry if I am misinformed.) Harry notices Ginny and then WA-BAM! He's in love. Alrighty then.
Which then brings us to Ron and Hermione. I find them particularly annoying. They are always fighting it seems...and it's not even the cute, playful banter fights. It's the endless bickering and it seems like they are both just settling for one another because they thought it was expected of them or something. When really they could better there friendship and move on.
I just don't like how the Golden Trio got married into the Weasley family. Nothing against the Weasley's, because it is the Weasley's who have the Twins. And I have so much love for the Twins. So much love.
It's just that they probably could have branched out a bit more that's all...
Such as follows.
NevillexGinny - I'm not quite sure why I like this pair, but I do. It is probably because Ginny paired with anyone besides Harry is an instantly better ship. Heh. Maybe that's just me.
RonxLuna - Not a fan of the RonxLavender business, because quite frankly, not a big fan of Lavender. She is just another fan girl who seems to have no personality. Now Luna on the other hand, she is Miss Personality and she is adorable! I love her quirkiness!
Which then brings us to...
HarryxHermione - ahkfhqanjksfh;asdjak!!!!!! Proper words cannot even begin to describe the feelings in my heart I hold for these two. They are just so CUTE! If you are ever bored, go check out All This Time by OneRepublic. I was reminded instantly of Harry & Hermione. They are beautiful and if I don't stop rambling on about how perfect they are, things will get sappy and we don't want that, now do we? ;)
But as of the late, I have been developing a new love...but mind you nothing could top off my love for Harmony ;) That being Dramione. I don't know what it is about these two that makes them so attractive, but they are and it is kind of awesome.
DracoxHermione - Maybe it is the fact that their relationship would not start out as a cutesy fairytale. Because, lets be honest with ourselves. Draco and Hermione aren't exactly friends. I envision they would be forced to work together (Head Boy & Girl), get stuck in a enclosed area (such as a broom closet) or are just secretly amused by their banter because they actually like a challenge. Yes, I am aware that all of these are cliche story lines, especially when it comes to Dramione. But that will not make me stop loving it any less!
So I think that's it.
Not sure if you read all that or even cared about it. But these are my opinions and I apologize if you found anything to be offending. That was not my intentions...just so you know. However, now that you know all about it my views, this is where I will stop my rambling.
