Favourite Arrow Pairings:
Oliver/Thea: What? Queencest is hot.
Felicity/Sara: Smoaking Canary anyone?)
Oliver/Sara: Yes! Okay, getting serious now. I never did like how Sara broke up with Oliver, in 2x20. The whole "It's not you, it's me" didn't pan out for me. Oliver and Sara have a lot in common, they have a better understanding of each other than others do due to the similar experiences and have pretty much lived the same lives. Canarrow.
Oliver/Nyssa: Hell Yes!
Nyssa/Oliver/Sara: F*k YEAH! Assassin Canarrow.
Neutral Arrow Pairings:
Oliver/Laurel: Why Lauriver? Too much has happened between them before. If Oliver had just manned up told Laurel how he felt, then he wouldn't have to have messed around with Sara. Laurel kinda pushed their relationship farther that it was at the time. Find a place together, marriage with a guy who can't commit. Laurel has herself to blame for that and for not having self-respect for herself to end the relationship when she KNEW what a cheater he was). Bottom line is that there's too much regret between them for anything to go ahead. They should remain friends, because let's be honest, Lauriver is toxic and messy.
Oliver/Felicity: Why do you ask? THERE IS ALREADY TOO MUCH OF IT ON THIS SITE! While I'll admit that Olicity is cute, they are better off as good friends in my opinion. It's time for a change. There should be more diverse pairings than Olicity on this site. Given how there's a chance that Olicity might come to an end this season, I do not want Oliver to end up with Laurel unless there's no other girl available for him. The reason Olicity happened at all in canon was because the fans created a huge base and made it popular.

"Do you know what it really means to forgive someone? Forgiveness means accepting all the betrayals that a person committed against you. It isn't as simple as people think, could you forgive Kaa-san for all the pain and suffering that she has caused to the people of this land?Forgiving her for all of her sins is no different that telling all of the people that their suffering was worth nothing and that we don't care about what she had done...I can't do that. I can't just accept what people have done without look at their past betrayals and being able to believe that they won't do the same thing again, that is why I don't believe in forgiveness. You don't need forgiveness for the people who will stay at your side not matter what. The people who have always been there for you will never need to be forgiven."
"People will then ask why I can't just forget everything that happened. People will always try to forget and move on, but does that really happen? Would you be able to look at Kaa-san's face and be able to forget everything that she has ever did to us, to our people? No, you will always be reminded of the past and that is why forgetting is impossible...And would you want to forget anyway? The past is what shapes us, what makes us who we are today. Should we change who we are just because it's at a person's convenience? I refuse to do that. Always remember! I do not forgive and I do not forget. These are two of the most important ideals that I live by."

Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soulmate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”
"Deception may be found everywhere, and as ninjas we see it every day. However if one were to simply open their eyes and observe carefully, they would see that the roots of all deception lie at home. For it is where we are at the most ease that we feel the need to overlook the most important things no matter how small they seem. For these very things are the root of our problems, they slowly blinds us all to the bigger picture, the grand conception, and in doing so opens us to heartbreak and sorrow. I find it safe to say that deception would not exist in this world at all so long as we all just opened our eyes and stopped our everyday tasks to take a moment and think about what truly causes our pain. Is it the act of a breaking bond? The death of a friend? The destruction of a home? All are tragic, yet none compare to the pain that can be felt when one is betrayed, the pain of an iron wedge being driven through your heart, yet even this is dwarfed by the betrayal of family, for when that wedge starts burning it does not just separate the betrayer from the others. It will tear a family apart slowly as they grieve and fight, an act that is as cruel as can be. Yet none of this can compare to the sight of their faces as they are betrayed, nothing compares to the joy I feel now as I watch you stand there shocked. Yes, this is true satisfaction."
-Naruto Namikaze- Anbu Captain
"Betrayal always hurts the worst from those closest to our hearts." Yao Fei - Four Vigilantes
"People live their lives bound by what they accept as correct and true. That is how they define 'reality'. But what does it mean to be 'correct' or 'true'? Merely vague concepts... their 'reality' may all be a mirage. Can we consider them to simply be living in their own world, shaped by their beliefs? After all, reality and illusion are interchangeable. One's reality might be another's illusion. We all live inside our own fantasies."
- Itachi Uchiha
"Every human being relies on and is bound by his knowledge and experiences in life. This is what we call “reality”. However, knowledge and experience are ambiguous, thus reality can become illusion. Is it not possible to think that, all human beings are living in their assumptions?"
- Different variation of above quote by Itachi Uchiha
"There is no true reality, only perception of reality."
- Rise of the Dark Lord
"People are people," Harry agreed. "Some are good, some are foolish, some are evil and some intolerant and yet most still act like sheep in the end. Rally to a person of will and follow without thought of why and justify their actions for a goal. The greater good, preserving society and any other number of causes can cause the descent to corruption. Tell me not the means to ones ends as they will speak of reason and necessity to overlook all acts of brutality and control merely tell me what the ends must justify. It is easier to sleep when one knows who one's friend and one's foe is."

"How is it that one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?" - Unknown
"Dating is like pulling off a successful heist. It's fun, it's thrilling, and you seem to have gained a lot from nothing. But marriage... (sigh) marriage is like getting arrested after that crime. You lose your rights, your liberty, and when the adrenaline finally wears off, you realize how dreary your life has become, doing mundane chores and eating the same three square meals every day. It's a stable but banal existence that will suck the life out of you."
-"La Tormenta" by Jiraiya's Dream
"What about you, Jack? What's it going to be? Loyalty to your country, or loyalty to me? Your country, or your old mentor? The mission, or your beliefs? Your duty to your unit, or your personal feelings? You don't know the truth yet. But sooner or later you'll have to choose." - The Boss
"Is there such a thing as an absolute, timeless enemy? There is no such thing, and never has been. And the reason is that our enemies are human beings like us. They can only be our enemies in relative terms. The world must be made whole again." — The Boss
"One must die and one must live. No victory, no defeat. The survivor will carry on the fight. It is our destiny... The one who survives will inherit the title of Boss. And the one who inherits the title of Boss will face an existence of endless battle."
— The Boss to Naked Snake (a.k.a. Big Boss)
"We have forsaken our countries, we have left our motherlands behind us, and we have become one with the earth. We have no nation, no philosophy, no ideology. We go where we are needed, not for country, not for government… but for ourselves. We need no reason to fight, we fight because we are needed. We are the deterrent for those with no recourse. We are Soldiers Without Borders, our purpose is defined by the era that we live in. We may sometimes have to sell our services and ourselves. When the times demand it, we will be revolutionaries, criminals, terrorists. And yes… we may all be heading straight to hell. But then there is no better place for us. This is our only home. Our heaven and our hell. This is… Outer-Heaven…" - Big-Boss, 1974
"The nightmares? They never go away, Snake. Once you've been on the battlefield, tasted the exhilaration, the tension... it all becomes part of you. Once you've awakened the warrior within... it never sleeps again. You crave ever bigger tensions, ever bigger thrills. As a mercenary, I'd think you would have realized that by now. You care nothing for power, or money, or even sex. The only thing that satisfies your cravings is war! All I've done is give you a place for it. I've given you a reason to live." - Big Boss
C&P these things onto your profile if you agree with them:
Hitsugaya needs to grow a few more inches.
Ichigo shouldn't have to chose between Rukia and Inoue and he should go for some random girl.
There aren't enough GgioXSoifon stories out there.
Lilynette is the best way to get Stark to do whatever you want.
The truth is my muse for my stories is gone for a while. I might at some point get back to writing, but due to a writer's block, I'm unable to do so In spite of that, I have come up with several story challenges that I felt would be good writings, but due to my lack of muse and time, I have neither the time nor ability to make these truly work.
As a result, I'm issuing the following stories that will be here and for you to write as Fanfiction writers. Further down this page will be several ideas I have come up with. The challenge is that you take one of these ideas, and make it your own. Please note each challenge might have specific requirements. These requirements do not hinder the productivity. If you accept a challenge, please PM me telling that you accepted a challenge. Part of the reason for this is because I want to see what others would do with my ideas.
Naruto/Vampire Diaries Crossover:
Legend has it that Silas was the first immortal being to ever walk this Earth over 2,000 years ago. He created the immortality spell alongside his best friend Qetsiyah. Qetsiyah, who had expected Silas to make her immortal as well was enraged to discover that Silas planned to discover the rest of eternity with another woman. So out of vengeance, she killed Silas' beloved, created a cure for immortality and imprisoned Silas and the cure deep within the bowels of an distant island. Silas refused to take the cure so that he could die and join Qetsiyah on the Other Side for all eternity, and so decided to have himself desiccate instead. So for over 2,000 years, Silas remained buried, hoping for the day that someone would free him.
Legends are but mere stories. There are only bits or truth and lie in them and so far faded into history that it's impossible to determine what the truth is anymore. Some are true, others are not.
Everyone has gathered on the Island in the search for the cure. Several want the cure for themselves, others need the cure to save the people they love, some require the cure to kill Silas for good. As for Silas... when they finally do free him for the cure...Silas isn't what everyone expects. Instead they find a certain golden-haired, whiskered man who is something else entirely...
Requirements are as followed:
1) Kol and Jeremy did not die their respective episodes. A lot of people complained about the death of those two bad boys. So to make people happy, they have to be alive.
2) Naruto must be paired with a girl from the VD universe with the exception of Elena. No Naruto females in this. That is non-nonnegotiable. Now you can add one more female to the pairing, just as it's long it's not a Harem.
3) The romance in the Story must be genuine and/or realistic and slow-building. None of that fast-paced, lovey-dovey crap.
4) Sasuke must be the main villain in the story. How he is added to this is up to you.
More will be up soon, but good luck with this.
"Oh, I saw quite a bit. But I only learned one thing: Klaus and I can never be allies. I now see that he will never trust me, so he leaves me no choice. I will have to turn the family against him, one by one. And now I know how to do it."
Freya to Esther about Klaus
Basically speaking, after Klaus refuses to trust Freya, she's plans turn the rest of their family against him. Now on the show, Klaus pretty did that much on his own. Freya didn't actually have to exert much influence in that direction. Whether or not she'll do it after Dahlia is defeated or if Freya dies permanently. This is basically a story of where Freya seeks to beat Klaus at his own game, going ahead with her original plan. Let's be honest, it's Freya's time to shine.
Okay, I did some brainstorming. And I do have some ideas in mind for an Arrow/Naruto crossover. These are just baseline ideas. Read them and tell me what you think about them and if you can write something about them. Here's my first one.
"The Canary's Fox."
She was lost, broken and scared. Tormented by the guilt of her actions, and losing the will to live, she resigns herself to death. But then he came into her life , took her in, fed her, clothed her and gave her the tools, the training. He gave her a chance for redemption. He promised to protect her always.
Naruto/Sara Lance (Black Canary)
Okay, for the summary, I have to admit I took inspiration from the summaries NeonZangetsu gives his stories and put it into this one. Okay, basically, after the flashbacks that took place in Season 2 of Arrow, Sara ends up re stranded on Lian Yu and instead of being found by Nyssa, she was found by Naruto instead. Now this requires knowledge of Season 2 and of Sara Lance's character so you might wanna do some research and watch a couple of episodes if you have the time.

How to make Effective Villains
One thing I've noticed recently and am sick and tired of is that all the villains nowadays have the "Its not my fault! Their the reason I've become evil and did the things I did!" Yeah like killing children and people who can't defend themselves is an excuse for what you do. Especially the ones in Naruto who seem to try and top themselves by trying to give themselves as sad a background as possible. You're not being sympathetic, you're being Pathetic! What happened to villains who were evil because they liked what they did and took pleasure in the suffering of others? Look at The Joker, he's done terrible things for the minuscule of reasons just to screw with people. Or Frieza, that monster blew up dozens if not hundreds of planets on a whim and wiped out entire races and millions of lives just cause he found it amusing. Those are the guys you should look to for villains.
If you're going to give a villain a sad backstory then make it actually work and don't overdo it. Nearly every bad guy in Naruto nowadays as a Woe is Me tale and its lost all its appeal. I just want someone to cut off one of them when their in the middle of their rant and throw a rock in their face or something and tell them to piss off. Orochimaru's I could buy into as his reason for turning into the man he is made sense as he felt anger and rage over the fact that his parents were taken from him when he was young and he wants to see them again but lost himself into his methods and madness and now only cares about inflicting pain upon other so they know what its like. Or Amon, brought up under the training of a cruel criminal bloodbender and forced to do things that was clearly having an effect on him mentally and growing to hate bending and wanting to destroy it all together.
Love what you want with whoever you love be they of any gender or culture, but don't treat others that chose to be different than you like Scum. Cause then, you only prove that you are Scum yourself.
Why Hayley Marshall is disliked on TO (The Originals)
For those who are not familiar with the Originals, do not read this any further.
My thanks to Phantom x Troupe for allowing to Copy & Paste this.
If you belive in this, Copy & Paste this to your profile.
1. Her characterization is inconsistent: Hayley was introduced in season four of TVD as a werewolf who helped Tyler learn to control his shifting. In the process she befriended not only Tyler but the other hybrids in his pack. It is soon revealed that Hayley was only using them in order to gain information on her family. She set them up to be sacrifices which resulted in the slaughter of twelve people who trusted her. This also indirectly lead to the death of Tyler's mother and setting him on a path of vengeance. Hayley destroyed many lives that night and you would think it was setting her up as a villain. What she did to those people was sociopathic. But instead, this issue is never brought up in the narrative again. This was a defining moment for Hayley as a character and it was completely glossed over. This is likely do to the fact that her character was receiving major backlash from the fandom. So this began the writers' task of making Hayley likeable.
Once we see Hayley again in the Originals, her previous dark deed is never mentioned again. In fact, when she and Tyler did meet in the crossover, he was portrayed as the villain and traitor. Tyler is one of the few good people in Mystic Falls. He hasn't been shown before or since then any indication that he would ever hurt a child, yet alone an unborn one. Yet his character was completely rewritten in that episode in order to make Hayley look better to the audience. Completely ignoring the fact that Klaus killed his mother because Hayley tipped him off about the hybrids' plan. Now Hayley is presented as the sole survivor of a lost clan of werewolf royalty. She is now also having a miracle baby with a man who previously in the narrative couldn't have children. This shit sounds like it was lifted straight from a damn fanfiction. One of the writers' main goal in season one was to retcon Hayley. In the process they have negated all of her atrocities from her introduction in TVD.
2. Her hypocrisy: Hayley has berated Klaus for having countless enemies that put their daughter in danger. So what does she do when Davina tells her to assassinate one witch? She slaughters eleven of them. Ten of whom were innocent and were just protecting their homes. And she literally ripped them apart. New Orleans's supernatural community is currently in a state of peace. Hayley's actions not only made her and by extension her daughter a potential enemy of the nine covens of New Orleans, but has also risked the factions going to war again. And since she's a queen, the Crescent pack will likely also be held accountable for her actions. And I'm starting to wonder if Hayley is actually a sociopath. We saw Davina break down in tears over her part in the deaths of those witches. Hayley showed no remorse whatsoever. Kai would be so proud.
3. The writers rewrite their own myths to accommodate her. We all claim Dahlia is the most powerful being in The Originals. Hayley is so OP she breaks the laws of her own universe. Hybrids are shown be as strong as vampires who are roughly in their hundreds. Hayley defeating eleven witches should not have been possible. We have seen vampires who are 100 years in age; such as Stefan, Damon, and Marcel, struggle to defeat one witch in direct combat. Hayley defeated eleven! And remember when she fought Mikael back in season one as a pregnant werewolf, and was actually keeping up with him? Mikael the Destroyer, the man who Klaus fears the most, was nearly bested by a pregnant werewolf. Even if Mikael wasn't at full strength do to being on the Other Side, he has over a thousand years of fighting experience. He should have wiped the floor with Hayley in Hand to Hand combat alone. Her power-level is way above than what it should be. Just ask yourself. Do you think that Tyler as a hybrid could have replicated Hayley's feats?
4. She is ungrateful. When Hayley first arrived in New Orleans, she was broke, homeless, pregnant, and the father of her child all but abandoned her. Elijah took her in, and fought for Klaus to be apart of their child's life. Both he and Rebekah proclaimed Hayley as family and made sure all of her needs were met. They put a roof over her head, rent free, and made sure she was well taken care of. And how does Hayley repay them? By showing more loyalty to a bunch of a people (the Crescents) she barely knew. From the moment she met Jackson, his needs came before the people who did so much for her. But I can pin point the exact moment I began to hate Hayley. It was when Rebekah was imprisoned inside Eva's mind, and Hayley threatened to kill her. This is a woman who took her in as family and was a caregiver for her child for months. And Hayley didn't even put up a fight to save her. She has no loyalty to anyone but herself.
And those are my reasons. If you think about it, Hayley is actually similar to other female characters; such as Dany from Game of Thrones and Korra from Legend of Korra. They're all leaders who had the position thrust upon them, authoritative, and arrogant. But what those two get right that Hayley doesn't, is that when they make mistakes, the narratives addresses it. They have repercussions for their actions, go through trials and tribulations, and come out better for it. They make down right horrible decisions at times, but they also learn from them. And this is where Hayley ultimately fails as a character. But what do I know?
