"A dog has no use for fancy cars or big homes or designer clothes. Status symbol means nothing to him. A waterlogged stick will do just fine. A dog judges others not by their color or creed or class but by who they are inside. A dog doesn't care if you are rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his. It was really quite simple, and yet we humans, so much wiser and more sophisticated, have always had trouble figuring out what really counts and what does not. As I wrote that farewell column to Marley, I realized it was all right there in front of us, if only we opened our eyes. Sometimes it took a dog with bad breath, worse manners, and pure intentions to help us see." John Grogan (Marley and Me, its a great movie)

poems that i have found, that i enjoy to read.
TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And both that morning equally lay
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Robert Frost, "The road not taken(first poem)" of "Mountain Interval"
Yaoi and naruto do not mix. VERY FEW, IF ANY characters in anime are gay, or lesbian in the first place. a small amount more are bi, but that's beside the point
WHO besides sasuke and orochimaru show any ideas or plans of being gay?
something (MOST) people dont pick up on: CANON NARUTO WAS NOT BEATEN AS A CHILD! he was GLARED AT! he MAY have been thrown out of shops, which would lead to lots of things like that. The shop that sold him the best food was ichiraku's, and he couldn't easily get "high quality" ninja gear for the academy so he couldn't practice with them. the reason his "precious people" are so precious to naruto, is that he lived most of his life without them. ichiraku-ojii, ayame, hokage-ojii, and himself were all those he could call precious, until he got his team, and sakura, sasuke and kakashi started to recognize him. then he got all of wave, and so on.
who the hell doesn't get powerful after spending TWO FUCKING YEARS trying!? kishimoto was on some fucking good shit if he actually thought that the "training mission" for TWO AND A HALF YEARS would team him to dispel genjutsu(BARELY) and double the size of his rasengan. jiraiya could do that. naruto is not special because of it. think of it this way. his improvements totaled
growing up(this includes physical improvement, where the changes were minimal)
learning "big ball spiraling sphere"
learning (barely, and did so horridly) "dispel/release genjutsu(Kai!)"
just BARELY brought his taijutsu up to GENIN level!
learned NO skills in sealing, espionage, or stealth, with the person who has MASTERED ALL THREE
people pointed out his biggest problem: when he uses a technique, he puts in enough chakra to turn a fireball or a gust of wind into an inferno or a tornado. THATS NOT A PROBLEM! THATS A GOOD THING YOU STUPID...
why learn "Grand Fireball" when he could use the same signs, and use "OMGWTFBBQ FIREBALL!!!!!~!!!one!!!!11!!!!!!" and turn it into a huge ball of flame about the size of his "super big ball rasengan"!?!? his strong point is that he can use his chakra, and has, to my knowledge, NEVER had chakra exhaustion. NEVER. he was ALWAYS up, ready to go the next morning, after about 6-8 hours asleep.
Then, sometime later, i thought about it some more, and came to a conclusion that made me depressed and sad when Jiraiya was killed. Naruto's trip with jiraiya wasn't about training, so much as "teaching the trade", introducing naruto to his spy network[indirectly possibly teaching him peeping techniques. lol] and most importantly, he gave him a childhood. in konoha, before the beginning of the manga, naruto was scorned and hated. While traveling with Jiraiya, naruto had fun just being with him. it wasnt a relation of sensei and apprentice, but more of father and son, truly showing naruto the love of parents.
i think this is more of a joking rant than a serious one, but...
sometime this year,(early '10) a friend and i were conversing on the topic of Naruto.
we've noticed something in common with a few different anime/manga.
the pink haired girl, 90% of the time named Sakura, is 99.9% useless.
canon pre-timeskip sakura:horrible
canon post-timeskip sakura:has good points, still not all that great.
our idea of making the "Sakura" characters useful!
Sakura:Go! USELESS BEAM! (neon-bright-light-dark-whatever pink beam shoots from palm(s) or forehead or eyes
other person gets hit*
sakura*smirks* NOW YOU'RE AS USELESS AS I AM!
other person:isnt that an oxymoron? wouldnt that make you useful, therefore negating the effects of the beam? and if you overused it, wouldnt it make you overpowered, and therefore, even more useful than i am, improving my usefulness and as a result my combat prowess/cooking skills/music skills/demon strength/(insert...)
other person(99999xpowerful)*fingerflick*/*auto-cook*/*auto-play instrument*/*whatever*
sakura and friends/the (good/bad, depends on the team she's on) people:X(
not actually a rant, but some thoughts. according to the lastest manga chapters,(around 500 or so. those.) naruto and tsunade are related, through kyuubi. naruto gets the whisker marks from being born from kyuubi's jinchuuriki, instead of him containing the fox. shodaime's wife, tsunade's great grandmother(or whatever it is) was a jinchuuriki. of kyuubi. that means that tsunade and naruto are slightly related. even if it is minimal. interesting, no?
ill rant more when i get some more sleep...
some info i guess...
i am male. it says so on my malebox.
Real name is William, and i do have a last name for those who care.
i can play games that are for the ages "nine to ninety nine"
i like food, espicially japanese and italian cuisine such as sushi, sashimi, onigiri, pizza, pasta, etc. and I wont deny being a little on the large side.
i am decently active, with an okay social life and fun family, so if i ever miss an update "deadline" that would be the problem
i am okay at most sports, and i have a love for music, video games, manga, anime and computers.
i am usually found nodding off or being lazy, similar to shikamaru... it's actually kind of interesting.
i've scared my brother bad enough by just "acting" asleep as i usually have alot on my mind.
i have a few pets, some neko, some inu, a few sakana, and my little brother had two parakeets for a few years but we had to give them away.
i've always been interested in information in general and i have dabbled in cryptology, psychology, biology, chemistry, biochemistry, and programming languages.
i have a great love for japan and the japanese language, and i will hopefully get my little brother into it as well.
my favorite anime/manga would be, in no real order as i just add them off of the top of my head;
DB/Z/uhm... GT is ok i guess
Death Note(heheheh L)
Full Metal Alchemist
Avatar:The Last Airbender(ideas + most of storyline okay)
Negima is interesting...
more to come as i remember them...
Favorite video games/VG series, same fashion as above
Pokemon(i still have most of them, but i haven't played in a long while)
Killer Instinct(this is an old game, but i still love it)
Diablo II/MXL mod(heheheh... cookie to whoever can hold up a decent conversation about them...)
Tekken, cant believe that i forgot D: i havent played in so long! *tears* T.T
SNES games are fun, like super mario, super mario RPG, etc.
N64! SNES! NINTENDO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM!
more to come as i remember them
i find some flash games enjoyable...
i dislike using caps unless it is for Names, or Pronouns as such, because of force of habit from using word processor too much.
i have a kind of bond of some kind with animals in general that my eldest little brother shares... its sort of a calming aura of some kind...
it exudes a feel-good empathic emotion, that others can feel if i am happy enough.
i DO believe in psychic powers, as i have empathic ones to a small extent. it took forever, but i did develop an empathic bond with my cats. it's creepy O.O" hope you don't get them.
i use profanity more often that i would like to or should because of the atmosphere i grew up in.
i dislike rape, and general unexcused violence. i haven't, don't, and won't smoke, use drugs, or commit crimes because i do so believe that everything will come back to hurt me in the end if i do wrong to anyone.
i try to avoid fighting if i can, be it arguments or physically combating each other.
my favorite day of the week, hands down, is Friday.
i, personally, are not registered as religious in any way, as i believe that if there was, we would all have to be reincarnated as, if in the bible as it says, or i've heard it says, (roughly)"our immortal souls will go to either heaven or hell depending on how you lived out your life"
also, If the true love of a man and woman, 'becoming one' as it were, was to create the soul, then wouldn't rape babies, etc, be soulless?
i am more nocturnal than i should be, preferring to sleep through the day, and be lazy/half asleep at night where i think better.
i love mythology, be it greek, roman, or japanese.
i love "hoshimi" or what i translated to "Star Viewing/Gazing" but i dont have much time to do so
i love animals, especially cats, felines, foxes, and birds(usually of prey[hawks, eagles, etc])
i love to watch clouds and laze about, as i am an embodiment of Water, a Contradiction,
as i could be calm, collected, and calculating, or active, flowing, and spontaneous.
i can hide within the crowd, or have all eyes on me,
i can go by myself, or take all along,
and i think i made that seem like a song.
or at least a poem. whatever. random strings of thoughts do this.
i've yet to sleep, my insomniac head;
and now i believe, it is off to bed.
hah! i can rhyme.

the "(random)% of people are afraid of not fitting in, if you're of the (rest of it)% that are not, copy and paste into your profile and add your name to the list" thing is hypocritical, because by doing that, you're fitting in.
CHALLENGES FOR THOSE WHO WANNA READ. HAVE FUN WITH THE IDEAS. WHATEVER.
note that all challenges i give are, to my knowledge, my original ideas. if i somehow end up copying someone's work, please tell me in a PM.
name: whatever, it dont matter
crossovers are welcome
length: "epic length" or over 200k words would be appreciated
main character: Naruto U.
pairing: naruxhina naruxten naruxsaku naruxother(FEMALE ONLY) naruxharem if you want to. (hell, why not have naru x femkyuu? havent found but a rare handful of good ones)
warnings:Super!naruto(he has to be strong, enough to take on an average jounin, or one of the sannin(note that he doesnt WIN, but can MATCH or LAST)
Naruto's secret of being jinchuuriki of kyuubi is actually KEPT SECRET, and only 4 people know: Hiruzen, Jiraiya, Kakashi, and kyuubi him/her/itself. naruto's whisker-marks are explained by having just been born while the kyuubi's chakra was throughout the village. danzo eventually finds out, as well as orochimaru, and akatsuki, therefore becoming some of the "main antagonists"
naruto is trained in secret, and the cannon naruto, is a "mask" to others, though doesnt act stupid. his "mask" is a ever-grinning happy-go-lucky smart-mouth prankster with the stamina to outrun anbu. his skills will include a "its in his blood, it just has to be" level of sealing mastery, kenjutsu specialty, and mastery of the Wind element(like to the point that he 'bends' it). because he's learned the "secret" of shadow clones early on, he has a tactical mind and has a "thirst" for knowledge. he loves to read, and like kakashi, is always seen with a book of some kind. he will be a pervert, but only to his girl(s) he can have a bloodline, but his parents are still canon, and it must either be a new bloodline, or a "gift" from the kyuubi, like the sharingan or something, as there are theories that it is where it came from. naruto is the 'everyone gets a second chance' kind of person, and is completely brutal and merciless to traitors. when he meets orochimaru, kabuto, etc or other traitors, he goes "berzerk" as it were, and mercilessly attacks them. because of his skills early on, he learns alot of the "real" things behind the walls of konoha, including Danzo's ROOT and the truth behind the massacre, therefore knows itachi is innocent, and doesnt berzerk against him(he is jiraiya's informant.
he can be adopted by one of the three that know, or not at all.
nother idea:(crackfic, or serious, your choice)[this could be taken as semi-timetravel, or a new idea]
Naruto breaks the 4th wall!(this pretty much means that because naruto gets to read about his life, when naruto stumbles into his mindscape(when doesnt matter. though the sooner the better), he finds the kyuubi, (his age, male, female, whatever works.) and the kyuubi(he/she/it dont matter, but at this point there is a human(oid) form. your gender/age choice. femkyuu pairings are fun) just so happens to be reading the latest Naruto manga! huzzah! naruto peeks over the shoulder of kyuubi, looks at the manga, and freaks out(and faints. heheheh). after waking up in a daze, kyuubi explains that the "manga" is (past life's memories, "what is going to happen", or whatever plotbunny works[read: happens to be raping your leg at the time]) Naruto freaks out, as seeing that you're just a character in a comic could do that to people. (i'd think it was awesome, personally, as that would mean no "rules"[think matrix]) because of the manga, he learns all the techniques shown(just because, it includes anime arcs, and movies before ending, and the end, naruto does not quite "live happily ever after" but his loved one(s) is deceased, and he lives on until death sadly teaching the next generations(konoha is destroyed, by who[and how] is your idea)
pairings are naruxharem(at least 3, one MUST be hinata, because of the "manga"
what i offer: i'm going to write to get to beta status, or you could message me about information about naruto, as i pride myself that i know more than anyone else i know IRL.
more info to be added after some more thought and more sleep
Girl: Do I ever cross your mind?
Girl: Do you like me?
Girl: Do you want me?
Girl: Would you cry if I left?
Girl: Would you live for me?
Girl: Would you do anything for me?
Girl: Choose--me or your life
Boy: My life
The girl runs away in shock and pain and the boy runs after her and says...
The reason you never cross my mind is because you're always on my mind.
The reason I don't like you is because I love you.
The reason I don't want you is because I need you.
The reason I wouldn't cry if you left is because I would die if you left.
The reason I wouldn't live for you is because I would die for you.
The reason why I'm not willing to do you anything for you is because I would do everything for you.
The reason I chose my life is because you ARE my life.

But most of all
Ladies always complain and gripe to their friends that there is never any good guys out there, and they always end up with assholes who mistreat them. Well ladies, next time you're complaining, maybe look up to see who you're complaining to, maybe that special someone is right there hanging on your every word as usual, screaming in his head "Why won't you give me a chance?"
If you're a guy and you agree with this letter, copy and paste into your profile as 'I'm sorry'
If You're one of the FEW girls with enough BALLS to copy and paste this into your profile, and you would never make your guy feel this way, copy and paste into your profile as 'Girls Don't Realize These Things'
A ninja waits until the dead of night, when the enemy sleeps and drops his guard, when his weapons lie forgotten in the stillness of the night, that is the moment for a ninja to strike. Copy this into your profile if you're a Ninja!
Keep smiling, it makes people wonder what you're up to
Come to the dark side... WE HAVE COOKIES!! (and cake, chocolate, and...)

You Know you're obsessed with Naruto when...
-Dye your hair blonde and try to walk up a tree.
Hi, my name is Kazu.
I like Writing and I like Athletics.
I am running down the road
I suddenly tripped over.
I come home with a scratch on my knee.
My mummy begins to worry.
I tell her I am fine.
She sighs and says ok.
I am at school.
When suddenly I fall and hit a tree.
I am sent to the sickbay.
Then I am sent home.
Mummy takes me to the doctors.
The doctors tell mummy something.
Mummy starts to cry.
I tell her it's ok.
I'm not going to die.
She tells me I am starting.
Starting to be slower.
I don't know what it means.
But I have become sick.
I tell mummy it's ok.
I will become better.
Mummy starts to cry.
Do I have cancer?
Mummy says no.
Then what do I suppose.
As a year had past.
I struggle to walk.
My speech is getting slower.
It's hard for me to talk.
My friends like to help me.
My classmates like to run.
But I have to sit down.
And watch them have fun.
Then one day my teacher.
Comes to see mummy.
Daddy comes out.
And starts to get all snotty.
The teacher tells my parents.
I can no longer go to school.
My motion is too slow.
I ask the teacher slowly.
I am sorry I am useless.
I start to cry and beg her.
I want to go to school.
The teacher gives a smile.
And tells me she is sorry.
The school cant really help me.
The words were so cruel.
The day I had to leave.
My friends and classmates cried.
The boys upon the windows.
Wave to me goodbye.
I smile and sit in the car.
I am taken to a school.
A school with special people.
Just like me and you.
I start to have some fun.
I made a lot of friends.
As many years passed again.
I talk too slow to understand.
I cannot run anymore.
And I struggle to even stand.
I cannot write in my diary.
My motion is too slow.
Then one day I am sent.
To the hospital again.
Now many years have passed.
I lie in a warm bed.
I cannot move my body.
I cannot move again.
I talk very slowly.
I cannot move my head.
My mummy sits there crying.
My daddy looks depressed.
I ask my mummy sadly.
Am I going to die.
My mother holds my hand.
Yells and starts to cry.
A few more years later.
I have to shut my eyes.
I cannot talk or move.
I seem to have died.

Who Am I?
I am the boy...that doesn't go to school dances, and when I do go, I sit in a corner and read a book. I am the boy that people look through when I say something. I am the boy that spends most of his free time reading, writing, or doing other activities that most teenagers wouldn't call normal. I am the boy that people call weird, and a freak either behind my back or to my face. I am the boy that doesn't spend all his time on MySpace, or talking about cars, girls or sex to his firends. I am the boy that hasn't been asked out in a year...or ever. I am the boy that has stopped to smell the flowers and jump and splash in the rain.
But I am also the boy who knows and is proud to be who he is, doesn't care if people call him weird (it's a compliment), who loves reading and writing and doing the things that no one seems to have the time to do any more, who can express himself better with words, and knows the importance of the little things.
Copy and paste this to your account, and add your name to the list, if you are anything like me, so the people who are different and unique can know in their weakest times that they are unique, but not alone. The First Kitsukage KitsuneNoYomeiri WanderingSage
You stand upon the sacred ground all lives must cross. With tears in your eyes, and a smile on your face, you turn and see what you leave behind. You see your friends, your family, waving and smiling in turn.
You look to your sides, and find your companions; your best friends, at your shoulders.
And yet... you look ahead, and see all that is glorious. Happiness, Excitement, Joy... Love. In front of you, the future lies hidden behind the thinnest of veils.
You are at a crossroad within your life, and your next choice will affect everyone close to you. But remember... you are not wise, yet you grow wiser every day. You are not old, and yet with every moment you grow older. You, who grows even as I speak these words, must remember...
We are here for you. Your friends will always be by your side - even if we are miles apart. Even when we are separated by that which is unknown, and frightening - even when death itself keeps us out of your sight, we are always with you. You are never alone... remember that.
Now, with this knowledge... Go forth, but not with haste. Go forth, walking ever forwards. Do not look back, but hear the cheers of your name. Do not glace to your sides, for your friends are there beside you, lightening your burden.
Smile, and look ever towards the future that you so desire. Do not let it slip through your grasp... and when you finally find that which you treasure most of all, wrap it tight, and hold it with all your might.
