~ Temari goes by Ino’s flower shop Every Day. They talk for hours about flowers mostly. Temari is even helping Ino with the shop and whenever she comes back fron Suna, she brings with her desert rarities and Ino squeezes and kisses her cheeks and Temari blushes (idk if the red on her cheeks comes from all the squeezing or from all the emotions she gets)
~ The both make jokes about Shikamaru’s laziness ONLY when Shikamaru is there to hear them. In secret they both talk about how much they both admire him: his intelligence, his hard work, even his looks 😝
~ Their sons? They’re the top-list subject and they educate them exactly in the same way: much more strict than the other moms, especially when it comes to the school and training duties. They spend hours talking about Shikadai and Inojin and how good friends they are, even telling stories they heard from them and making comparisons to the previous InoShikaCho generation.
~ They are both good cooks and they go shopping together with Karui ( because she’s the best of them all at it) and InoTema listening carefully and taking notes from Karui.
~ Ino talks so pretty of Temari when alone with Shikamaru, it makes him blush uncomfortably.
You what i’m happy about? The fact that as adults, Ino and Temari are good friends.
Since there were always rivalry between shikaino and shikatema fandom, those two ladies were displayed as sworn enemies. Two blond, “bitchy” and troublesome girls that hated each other for the same traits they had in them, even though they never even talked on canon.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s very easy to hate that one character that’s ruining you OTP, I was there too. Even now I clearly have a favourite between the two of them, but I can’t ignore how amazing is the other one as well.
Two strong, independent,beautiful and clever kunoichis who will stand on their on and will give everything they have for their loved one and teammates. I absolutley adore and admire them.
That’s why i’m so glad they became good friends as they grew up. Instead of a toxic relationship (as I said, a lot of their traits clash) they have a beautiful friendship based on motherhood and love for the same people. It’s beautiful, and even if my OTP didn’t became a canon, those things are absolutley more important and make it worth.
Village is being attacked
Shikamaru: Oh no what a tragedy…….
I should do something to protect my friends!
I could just take a nice nap and let the Jonins handle it!……
Yeah that’s seems like a solid plan!
