So I've been attempting to write a story for Euphemisms for about twenty minutes. No luck. So I figured I'd do memes, why the hell not?
I don't really have one, as I tend to latch onto a few characters (Sakura, Konan, Sai, Lee...) and ship the hell out of them with EVERYONE. I guess a few favorites are Sakura x Sai (if you couldn't already tell) just because of it's dysfunctionality (is that a word? ...Probably not), Pein x Konan (the first couple I hardcore shipped from the get-go. Usually I have to be won over on that kind of thing) and Ino x Chouji. I also don't mind some Sakura x Ino or Anko x Ibiki every now and then...
Kurenai x Asuma, easily. Only panel I ever seriously got choked up on was the one with Shikamaru breaking the news to Kurenai. Tsuande x Jiraiya is a close second though. I liked the hints at Yuugao x Hayate too. Man, what a depressing pattern I have here.
Eh, I don't really have strong opinions on this one. I don't think I'd like to see Sakura x Sasuke or Naruto x Hinata play out though. Not because I have any problems with the ships themselves (though I will admit I may click the back button if I stumble on NaruHina...I just can't help myself, sorry) but I have a bad, ominous thunder cloud feeling that if they were to happen the character progress that has been made for the two female characters might be backtracked. If it could be done well, then hell yeah I'm all for it. But if it's handled badly...yeesh...
"You're a sick bastard!" Ship
I think Kabuto x Sakura has great potential for some seriously twisted luvin'. Shikamaru and Kurenai would probably qualify too. I'm interested in Naruto x Jiraiya, in more of a mentor figure/admire from afar kind of way but I'm afraid to look for fic for it because I'm picky. Really, really afraid. Same for Tsunade x Shizune or Tsunade x Naruto...Tsunade x Kakashi could be interesting too...IDK.
I Dabble a Little Ship
Got a few of these:
Crowskin by Sintari made me seriously love Ino x Chouji, but I haven't gotten around to reading any other fics with them...
Neji and Tenten is one that I've started to like as well...I never even considered them as a pairing until I entered that contest a while back on a whim, but I'm glad I did because this pair has some of the best written stories out there.
Sasuke and Sakura sometimes, but I prefer friendship fic more for them. (I really prefer friendship fic for any pairing lol)
Sakura and Deidara is another one that I've started reading, mainly because there's just so many awesome fics about them, like Vessel and its not!sequel Diplomacy.
Naruto and Shikamaru, I'm not really into romace for this, but the friendship dynamic is really interesting.
"It's like a car crash" Ship
Sai and Sakura definitely spring to mind. Kakuzu and Konan (mysupersekritcrackOTP) is another. I think Sasuke x Sakura could qualify too, as well as Gai x anyone as his awesome overpowers all.
"It tickles my fancy but not quite sold yet" Ship
Lee x Hinata- I think this could be potentially hilarious, but I've yet to search for fic/write for them yet
Sakura x Naruto- This is one that I would love to see happen in canon but for some reason I don't feel the urge to read or write about them outside of it. Weird, huh?
Itachi x Sakura- The good ones I read are amazing, the others...well...I cringe a bit.
Jiraiya x Konan- Where is the fic? DDD:
"Makes no canon sense but why the hell not?" Ship
Sakura and Deidara...have they even met in canon?
Obito and Kurenai...I read a fic (I really wish I could remember which one) where a younger Kurenai had a crush on him and loved it.
Shizune and Ibiki...not really out there, but not likely either D:
Everyone Likes it But I Just Don't Feel It Ship:
Sasuke x Hinata: I don't really have a plausible reason, just something about it seems a little...off. Plus, poor Hinata.
Sasuke x Naruto: I just can't see it beyond rivalry/brotherhood. (And I tried really, really hard!)
...y'know, just Sasuke pairings in general lol. He's not ready for any of that yet, seeing as his mentality hasn't really changed since he was twelve.
When All is Said and Done:
In canon: Kurenai x Asuma, Tsunade x Jiraiya, Sakura x Naruto or Lee, Konan x Pein
Non-canon: Sai x Sakura (although canon would be AMAZING)
With a fluid and subtle movement from Sakura’s elbow, Sai found himself tumbling off of the catwalk, and Sakura made a mental note to include her partner’s accidental fall in the mission report.100 Situations: Flame
The porn was on fire.
The Right Perspective
As soon as the words were out of her mouth, she wished she could have taken them back, but one look at Deidara's approving grin made her smile instead.
Like a Girl
She always hits like a girl, that way it really hurts.
Chiyo watched as her precious baby boy blushed and tried to shove her off of her chair and to the ground when she said his red hair looked nice.Pruning
“Bring it on, you flat-chested bitch,” Jiraiya snarled back, grabbing some hedge clippers and immediately using them as an impromptu weapon against Tsunade’s rather impressive taijutsu.
