My Irrational Wishlist:
I wish I had been born with dark grey eyes, not brown ones.
I wish I had (a) supernatural power(s).
I half wish the Naruto world, or another fictional world, was real and I lived in it.
I wish I had amazing artistic abilities.
I wish it wasn't so easy for me to lie.
I wish I wrote well enough that my mom wouldn't tell me that I need practice.
I wish I was more thankful for what I had.
I wish my parents hadn't set such high standards for schoolwork. An 'A' is so much easier than 'doing my best' and I won't feel so guilty when I don't reach the goal.
I wish habits were easy to break.
I sometimes half-wish that there was no need to follow any type of ethical or moral code.
I wish I was skinny and athletic, as well as musically, academically, and artistically talented.
I wish I wasn't so greedy.
I wish I wasn't so pathetic and weak, reduced to writing lists.
I wish, just once, to feel extreme physical pain without having any actual injury, just to know what pain really feels like.
I wish I could erase the above wish.
I wish I wasn't so fickle.
I wish there was someone who knew all sides of me.
I wish I knew who my spouse will be, and when I will meet them. Him, I guess.
I wish societies weren't so constricting.
I wish I could bend words to my will easily, instead of having to carefully edit everything over periods of time.
I wish I didn't know so much.
I wish I wasn't so stupid.
I wish my duties were of the same priority, and had no deadlines.
I wish I knew what death is like, and what comes after if anything.
I wish I wasn't so selfish.
I wish I was happy with the way I am.
I wish I wasn't a hypocrite.
I wish I had no need for this list.
So, I recently read the first book in the Divergent series, and I was thinking that it would be cool to have a Naruto crossover with it. I have yet to figure out the actual plot, but I was thinking that the summary could be something like "Fifteen teenagers scattered throughout the Factions, some even Factionless. But these sixteen-year-olds have three things in common: 1) They have come to their life-altering decision, 2) They were all ninja in an alternate universe for the first fifteen years of their lives, and 3) They share a potentially fatal secret."
I CLAIM THIS IDEA!!!!!
But if anyone has any other ideas to aid this process, seeing as how I have very little inspiration for plot, then please shoot me a PM.
A NARUTO QUIZ!
1) Who is your favorite character(s)? Shikamaru, Itachi, Gaara--those kind of stoic, pale, hot, intelligent ones, I suppose.
2) What is your favorite pairing(s)? Eh... KibaHina... can't really think of any other really pressing ones.
3) Are you a Naruto yaoi or hentai fan? Perhaps... (But for which one? First? Last? Both? Third? GASP.)
4) Ever cosplayed Naruto characters? I wish... I tried to cosplay TenTen but I never got around to the costume, and the same goes for Hinata... But I have crossplayed as Near from DeathNote...
5) List your collection of Naruto junk and merchandise. My imagination, sadly, is it. OH! My brother has a Naruto DS game that I've played before. HA!
6) Have you ever felt you were destined to be with a Naruto character? WELL... I fell in semi-love with Itachi...
7) NaruHina or KibaHina? KibaHina, I suppose, because Naruto's too much of an insensitive blockhead when it comes to girls. Or anyone, for that matter.
8) SasuSaku or SasuNaru? Probably SasuNaru, because Sakura was an annoying fangirl but she's cool now. If she were to be with Sasuke, then he'd probably kill her or make her depressed and kill herself within a week, and I rather like Sakura now, so that would be sad. Yerp.
9) Which team is your favorite? Hrm... Toughie, this one... Akatsuki is BA, but so was the former, complete Team 7...
10) Do you support the Obito theory? No. Firstly, because I know the truth, secondly, because half of Obito's f'ing body was f'ing CRUSHED UNDER A BOULDER! There wouldn't be much skull left to support the mask, would there be?
11) Do you support the "Yondaime is Naruto's father" theory? Yes, because I know the truth, but if I didn't, THEY ARE LIKE CARBON COPIES except that Yondaime looks a heck of a lot wiser.
12) Your favorite Akatsuki member? Itachi, but... who was it again? ...Oh, RIGHT! Deidara makes a close second. If you play Phoenix Wright (even if you don't), look up Matt Engarde. HE IS HOT and he really reminds me of Deidara... Plus Deidara is psychotic, and while I can't ignore that he did you-know-what to Gaara (HE WILL PAY), he seems pretty cool if you do ignore that. Yerp.
13) Are you Pro-Sasuke or Anti-Sasuke? I've got this annoying voice in the back of my head that tells me that Sasuke is still Sasuke under all the layers of 'bastard'. I've got this other annoying voice in the back of my head that tells me that all those layers of 'bastard' are all there is. I'm Pro-pre-Shippuden Sasuke, but I'm Anti-Shippuden Sasuke. So if pre-Shippuden Sasuke is just hiding out somewhere inside Shippuden Sasuke (which I hope to high heavens he is), then my life will be made. Partially.
14) Have you seen all of the Naruto episodes so far (including Shippuden and fillers)? No, I haven't, but I know the plot for months ahead because of my activity here. Ahem.
15) Have you read all the chapters so far? Unfortunately, I do not have a good source for reading the manga, so I have been unable to.
16) Do you believe Naruto has ADHD? What else do you think is keeping him alive? But at the same time, he was so still and quiet when you-know-what happened to Jiraiya... *sniffsniff*
17) Sub or dub? SUB PLEASE.
18) Pro-Sakura or Anti-Sakura? Pre-Shippuden, she's annoying as heck, but when Sasuke isn't around she's got some good qualities. Those qualities only magnify in Shippuden, so I suppose that I'm Pro-Sakura as long as there's no Sasuke in the vicinity (or in her mind).
19) Tobi= Annoying or funny? Annoying, and that's what makes him adorable.
20) Do you even know who Tobi is? Unfortunately, and that's what makes him repulsive.
22) Which character would be the best cross dresser? I know that Haku has actually crossdressed within series, and Naruto has the Sexy Jutsu/Oiroke-no-jutsu whatever and so does Konohamaru, but I swear, Orochimaru's and Sasuke's faces are WAY too pretty for their own good!!!
23) Rock Lee= Weird or awesome? Awesome. No question. I mean, for heaven's sakes, Naruto wears all orange, Sasuke wears barely anything on top, and at least he's our age. Not like Gai, a man reaching middle-age status and still wearing a green spandex jumpsuit. *shiver*
24) Which character would be the best OOC? Best or funniest? I think that an OOC (as far as the way he acts around the Leaf 11) Naruto is very thought-provoking and deep, but I can't deny that OOC Gaaras and Nejis are laugh-inducing.
25) Do you like Naruto fanfictions? ...This question is not worthy of an answer.
26) Do you write Naruto fanfictions? ...This question is not worthy of an answer either. Okay, fine, yes, I do. See below.
27) Do you like lemons? Perhaps... (Of course, this could be referring to the degrees of likes, or maybe I just haven't seen any and don't want to admit it. ...Shoot.)
28) Do your parents know about the Naruto characters? Ummm... my brother and I argue about the most 'inane' things sometimes...
29) Have you ever watched the Naruto Abridged series? Heheh... Moo...
30) Have you seen the Naruto Ultimate fan flashes? Perhaps... (Of course, this could be referring to the different definitions of 'seen', or maybe I just haven't seen any at all and don't want to admit it. ...Shoot.)
31) Have you ever got someone else hooked on Naruto? I think so. Oops...
32) Have you ever been drawing Naruto in school and someone recognized it? Yep! Well, the crazies at my table knew what I was drawing because I announced it, but the shocker was that my MATH TEACHER recognized it. He is cool, to say the least.
33) Have you ever drawn Naruto in class and had your teacher come up to you and say 'What in the world is this?' No. Like I said, COOL MATH TEACHER.
34) Has Naruto affected your life and grades? Life? Yes, definitely. Grades? Nah, I'd have procrastinated anyway.
35) Are you broke thanks to Naruto? Perhaps... (Of course, this could mean I am broke and don't want to admit it, or that I haven't ever bought anything Naruto-related and don't want to admit it, or that I haven't ever bought anything Naruto-related because I'm not cool enough and don't want to admit it. ...Shoot.)
36) Do you want to read Icha Icha Paradise? It'll be inappropriate, sure, but if it can make Kakashi GIGGLE of all things, then heck yes, I want to read it!
37) Do you support the "Yondaime is the Akatsuki Leader" theory? Heck no, firstly because I know the truth, and secondly, because I know another truth that makes such theories obsolete. And idiotic.
38) Do you draw Naruto fan art? I've tried, with varying degrees of success.
39) Is Sasuke still sexy in the second stage of the curse seal? He becomes even more ridiculously pretty, so at the risk of sounding like a lesbian, YES.
40) Do you have a Naruto OC? Look at the monster that has taken over my life and ask the fifteen-something voices that just started yelling inside of my head.
41) Looking back at some of your answers, do you think Naruto has taken over your life? Nah, just my sanity. Wait. My life revolves around my semi-sanity. ...Shoot.
42) Do you look like a Naruto character? Too tan to be Hinata, too short to be TenTen... Actually, even Hinata is taller than me when we are the same age. ...Shoot.
List your top twelve Naruto characters!
1) Have you ever read a Six/Eleven fanfic before?
Hinata/Sasuke? Definitely. Tons. It’s one of my favored pairings (not favorite, but favored), because I love the comparisons and the bond that I feel they could feasibly have if you tweak things around a bit.
…I also dislike this question, because it makes no sense if it ends up being a canon relationship…
2) Do you think Four is hot? How hot?
Anko? At the risk of sounding like a lesbian, I think she’s pretty friggin’ hot. Mostly because of all of her confidence. And because her scariness reminds me of myself.
…That makes me sound narcissistic…
3) What would happen if Twelve got Eight pregnant?
If Deidara got Tenten pregnant? Well, Tenten would be pretty flacking mad (still not sure how it would happen in the first place) and would quite feasibly rip him another mouth opening.
The children would be rather frightening, in love with pointy sharp objects and explosives.
…They sound rather a lot like me…
4) Do you recall any fics about Nine?
About Kankurou? Oh yeah, there are lots, and I’m pretty sure you can find some in my “Favorites”, but I loved “Coping”, by Storymaster Caith. It made me cry a few times, and it’s beautifully written. I’d definitely recommend it if you don’t mind the sadness.
5) Would Two and Six make a good couple?
Two and Six… Shikamaru and Hinata? Maybe so. Shikamaru would be intelligent enough to keep Hinata from feeling awkward, and Hinata is intelligent, probably enough to at least hold an interesting conversation with him. Even so, I doubt it would work out in the end, simply because Hinata is too easy-going to get Shikamaru to do anything, and Shikamaru is too laidback to give Hinata the care and affection she needs.
6) Five/Nine or Five/Ten?
Temari/Kankurou or Temari/Kiba? I’d probably have to say Temari/Kiba, not just because I disapprove of incest, but because Kiba and Temari would make a rather amusing coupling. Can you imagine? Poor Kiba would be bossed around so much, but he’s such a nice guy I doubt he’d care, though he’d keep things from going too far. Temari, on the other hand, would have an interesting time reining Kiba in. They’d be a volatile pair, perhaps, but I think they also have the potential to be a “perfect poster” couple.
7) What would happen if Seven walked in on Two and Twelve having sex?
If Obito walked in on Shikamaru and Deidara having sex?
…First of all, I doubt that’s a very likely pairing in the first place, as Shikamaru would most likely be like, “I don’t want to move.”
Deidara would respond, “Move or you go BOOM.”
Obito peeks in, “Am I disturbing somethi—OH GOD. I’LL GO.”
…Or he’d stay and cheer someone on.
…Yeah, I dunno.
8) Make up a summary for a Three/Ten Fanfic.
Gaara/Kiba? Hmmm…. “Canines are not known for naturally inhabiting desert areas, and it’s for this reason that Inuzuka Kiba’s fascination with Gaara of the Sand is so strange. That, and that Gaara would rather kiss his sister than waste a day of his life on a boy who lives with puppies.”
9) Is there any such thing as One/Eight fluff?
Itachi/Tenten fluff? I don’t think so, but it sure would be interesting, especially considering how I luuuuurve Itachi and how I relate most to Tenten.
10) Suggest a title for a Seven/Twelve Hurt/Comfort fic.
An Obito/Deidara Hurt/Comfort fic? …Poor Obito, getting freaked out by Deidara so much… Uhhh…. Hmmm…. “Drowning in a Star-Lit Sky”.
…Whaddya think? You know, “Drowning” for Obito’s orange goggles, and “Star-Lit” in place of fireworks? Yeah? Yeah? Yeah—
11) What kind of plot would you use if you wanted Four to de-flower One?
If I wanted Anko to deflower Itachi?
…AW GAWD. THAT WOULD BE EPIC.
It’d probably have to do with meeting when they were younger. Anko would be fascinated by the younger stick-up-his-ass prodigy, and then she’d go to Orochimaru and get screwed up. She’d come back and meet Itachi in the Missions Room, both looking for assassination assignments (heh, ass-ass…ass) and she’d recall her interest and he’d recall her strangeness. Finding commonality in dissatisfaction by father figures, they slowly become friends.
And then they go out drinking.
And Anko and Itachi go on from there.
12) Does anyone on your friends list read Three het?
Gaara het? Yeah. Definitely.
13) Does anyone on your friends list write or draw Eleven?
Write or draw Sasuke? Definitely, yeah. For goodness’ sake, I write and draw Sasuke.
Just not so well on the drawing bit…
14) Would anyone on your friends list write Two/Four/Five ?
Shikamaru/Anko/Temari? Well, there’s the Shikamaru/Temari in there already, and then you add in a touch of scary Anko… I might write that. I could get someone on my friends list to write it with the right incentive (read: bribery and threats)…
15) What might Ten scream at a moment of great passion?
Kiba? Uhhhh… The name of the person he’s involved with? Or… “SHITSHITSHITSHITSHITFUCK DAMN YOU _!”
The blank would be the person who caused the angry passion, I guess…
…DON’T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT! I’M ALLOWED TO INTERPRET IT THAT WAY!
16) If you wrote a song-fic about Eight, what song would you choose?
A songfic about Tenten? That’s a bad question, it’s way too broad. Depends on what kind of songfic, what other characters I want to include, what situation, what events, and what inspiration.
But in “To the Farthest Reaches”, I wanted to use “Alive Again” by Matt Maher.
17) If you wrote a One/Six/Twelve fic, what would the warning be?
Itachi/Hinata/Deidara… “Warning: Crack ahead. Beware of lens-less glasses, explosive miniature figurines, and a pranking bamf in the form of the person you are least likely to expect.”
18) What might be a good pick-up line for Ten to use on Two?
For Kiba to use on Shikamaru? Er… Ummm…. A good pick-up line, or a fitting one?
Good: …Uhhh… I don’t know if this is possible… Uhhh… “Canines are man’s best friend, willing to nap all day or come out to play,” *suggestivewink* “if you know what I mean…”
Or “You know how you can’t fall asleep when you’re in love? It’s because reality is better than your dreams. Care to find out what that’s like?”
Fitting: …Hmmm… “Smoking is hazardous to your health… and babe, you’re killing me!”
19) How might Eleven describe a relationship between Two and Eight?
How would Sasuke describe a relationship between Shikamaru and Tenten?
“He sleeps around. She cuts.”
Yeah, napping in a different spot every day, and cutting through targets with her carefully sharpened weaponry. Way to be misleading, Sasuke, you jackass.
20) How emo is Seven?
Obito? I’m sure it’s possible, but Obito isn’t very. Maybe he’s dissatisfied with himself and wishes he were better than he is, but the closest he comes to “emo”tional is when he’s yelling bloody murder at Kakashi or about to jump out of his seat in excitement.
