What can I say? (shrugs) Felt like changing it...
With the end of Naruto Shippuden upon us, there are a lot of people getting rather psycho about it all. Especially the SasuSaku and SasuNaru fans. Or so I hear. I don’t actually follow any of that stuff. But someone I know has been telling me all about it, and it’s getting pretty cruel. SasuSaku fans are dragging non SasuSaku fans through the mud, apparently targeting NaruSaku fans a lot. They’re also apparently calling people ‘salty’, whatever the hell that means. When I found out, my first thought was, if someone called me salty, I’d ask if that was because they wanted to lick me. ;)
I’ve learned that a SasuSaku shipper said that a NaruSaku fan said Kishi should beat his wife, though I don’t know why. Probably because she likes Naruto and Hinata together. But my friend couldn’t find the post ANYWHERE, and they looked pretty thoroughly. Also, there is someone on fanfiction they often talk with, only a comment that person said, that if cannon didn’t end SasuSaku, then it was crappy writing by Kishimoto. I find that highly insulting, since I write non SasuSaku. Does that mean my non SasuSaku writing is crappy just because they’re shipping a pairing that’s different?
And then there’s the SasuNaru fans. They’ve ALWAYS annoyed the shite out of me! They call people homophobes if they don’t ship them, and some have even expressed open disgust at any and all straight pairings. Heck, a reviewer on one of my SasuNaru fics bitched at me because I didn’t warn anyone that there was straight sex in it! I warned about sex, but didn’t specify the gender pairings, and they were cruel about it! I try not to let flamers and such get to me, and luckily, I haven’t had that many, compared to some I’ve seen, but it does affect you, whether you want it to or not.
In any case, I’m happy about the NaruHina cannon, and ‘eh’ about SasuSaku. I like both, but I don’t really care about this whole shipping war going down right now. Practically none of the MAJOR pairings I write about, whether in Harry Potter, Naruto or even Avatar the Last Airbender, are cannon. Draco and Hermione never got together, but I like them ten million times more than their cannon pairings. Zuko and Katara don’t end up together, but I love them together. I love GaaSaku, NejiSaku and ItaSaku the best out of all the Naruto pairings, but none of them are really viable, for one reason or another, but I don’t care.
The only thing that matters to me, is me, and any story I write is only for me, as practice for when I can be good enough to be a proper author. I don’t care for flamers, and any anonymous flame that’s too cruel will be deleted, and any signed in flamers of the same sort will be blocked. I have a right to support whatever ship I want, to write whatever I want, and I won’t let childish antics or any kind of bullying or demeaning of my character or such, stop me from doing something I love.
