dating someone else

jake peralta appreciation post
He:
  • was open and honest about his feelings towards Amy from almost the very start
  • didn’t try to sabotage her existing relationship 
  • didn’t lie to her about his feelings except once but then he felt bad and told her the truth the same day 
  • tried to move on in a healthy manner, accepting that she was taken 
  • dated someone else and didn’t immediately dump her and try and get with Amy once Amy became available (seriously it bugs me so much when characters do this. If you’re just using a relationship as a stopgap until your preferred partner becomes available, DON’T BE IN THAT RELATIONSHIP!!) 
  • didn’t tell Dave not to ask her out even though he liked her because he knew it wasn’t fair to her - “I can’t go around telling guys not to ask Amy out because I like her and I’m too dumb to do anything about it" 
  • never once tried to control her or emotionally manipulate her to be with him and was open and upfront about his feelings 
  • when they actually became a couple, is completely committed & in love with her and is willing to make sacrifices for their relationship like moving into her apartment because he realises it’s important to her and would make her happy
  • in the episode where she’s undercover in the prison and he keeps interfering bc he’s worried about her getting hurt he doesn’t try to make her leave bc he can’t handle it and instead accepts that he’s the one that needs to take himself off the case bc he knows she can handle it by herself and him being there is only hindering her progress because he can’t stop worrying
  • isn’t afraid of her becoming more successful than him - is really supportive of her taking the sergeant’s exam which could result in her outranking him and even becoming his boss bc "You can’t be afraid to be successful, you’re too good for that” and “I’ve always known you were gonna be my boss”
  • READ HARRY POTTER JUST BECAUSE HE KNEW SHE LOVED THEM SO WANTED TO ENJOY THEM WITH HER 
  • tl;dr jake peralta is one of the best male tv protagonists & boyfriends of all time and peraltiago is literally the healthiest and best relationship ever and has given me unrealistic romance expectations for life

Do’s and Don’ts of shipping REAL people

Shipping is okay with real people when it’s done respectfully. Here are MY do’s and don’ts of shipping real people:

DO: make fanfics and fanart. It’s a great way to improve your writing and drawing skills and it’s a fun way to express yourself.

DON’T: send the people involved in the ship said fanfics and art unless it’s ASKED for. It can make them uncomfortable, and put a strain on their friendship, which no one wants. (Especially you!)

PRO TIP: If you have fan art that is all friendship and not romantic/sexual, send it to them! Everyone loves a drawing of themselves!

Examples: Minicat, H2ovanoss, and Phan.


DO: Spread positivity! Compliment each others fanfics and artwork. Support each other’s headcannons and opinions!

DON’T: Hate on someone’s fanfic or fan art if it display’s something you’re uncomfortable with, such as smut and/or triggering content. Although, said fanfics should be tagged accordingly and given the proper warnings.  

PRO TIP: If you see fan art promoting any vile and inappropriate issues, REPORT IT.  For example, a fanfic that someone wrote for a fandom I was in, was promoting Pedophilia and that IS NOT OK. Please take proper measures to get the fanfic promoting serious issues such as pro-rape, pedophilia, romantization of self-mutilation, and etc. removed.

Examples of this are in banana bus squad EVERY FANDOM.


DO: Send sweet tweets and comments that contain something along the lines of; “You two are so cute!” “I love your friendship!” and other sweet comments like that.

DON’T: Send tweets and comments that say something like, “They’re definitely fucking” “Are you two dating?” “Are you guys gay?” “I bet they secretly like each other! Look at all this evidence!” “You and your girlfriend/boyfriend need to break up so you can date [insert name here]!” and other comments along the line of those. It’s rude and disrespectful and makes them feel uncomfortable.

PRO TIP: If someone in your ship starts dating someone else, DO NOT ATTACK THEM. It’s rude, awful, and down right just nasty. It’s an extremely childish thing to do. Respect their partners like you would your favorite person.

Some examples of ships that have grown apart in real life because of excessive shipping and hate being sent their romatic partners are: Troyler, Septiplier, and H2ovanoss.


DO: Make friends within the fandom and have healthy discussions about other ships, headcannons, and posts.

DON’T: Attack someone if your OTP is their NOTP. Do not put hate on headcannon’s and fanfic about how “They would never do that in real life”. Fanfiction and headcannons are suppose to be fun. The way people write their fics are their own choice and maybe be inspired by things they have dealt with in the past. I know that when I write fanfics they can get a bit ooc because I focus on the story line, rather than the people I’m writing it about.

Some examples of shippers that have hated on others for the reasons above are: Destiel, Phan, and Jaspar.


Above all, keep the shipping, the fanfics, and the romantic/sexual fan art in the fandom. If they wanted to see it, they would ask for it, or find it themselves.

Also have fun and ship responsibly/respectfully!

There are a lot of things that seem like the end of the world. Like when the person you like stops talking to you once you sleep together. Or when you have to watch a person you’re supposed to be over date someone else and you realize that sharp pain in your chest probably means you’re not actually over them.

But what’s even harder is losing someone without getting to say goodbye and not having anyone to talk to about it. Or having to hurt someone you care about because you know what’s best for them and it’s not you.

There are so many times in our lives that our hearts will break. And the bad news is, one of those times will be worse than all the others. But the good news is, it’s probably not what you’re going through right now.
  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: In 2008, Taylor Swift dated Joe Jonas, lead singer of the Jonas Brothers. Their relationship was Taylor's first highly publicized relationship and attracted some of Taylor's biggest media attention at the time. Taylor thought she and Joe were genuinely in love and possibly meant to be, but Joe abruptly dumped her over the phone in under 25 seconds. Taylor then went on to make the infamous Joe Jonas doll video, wrecked Joe on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and publicly admitted that the breakup song "Forever & Always" was about Joe. It was later revealed that Joe had left Taylor for another woman. In turn, Joe wrote the song "Much Better" about Taylor, saying his new girlfriend was much better than Taylor and calling Taylor's fans crazy. On Taylor's next album,Speak Now, Taylor wrote the song "Last Kiss" about Joe, revealed with it's secret message "Forever and Always." She also wrote "Better Than Revenge" about the woman Joe left her for. During one night of the Speak Now Tour, Joe Jonas came, and Taylor and he looked into each other's eyes as Taylor sang Last Kiss, a song of missing him and wishing he would come back to her. On her next album, RED, Taylor wrote the song "Holy Ground" about that specific incident, saying she appreciated their original relationship and glad she had him in her life and would always remember their good times. Taylor then released her 5th album, 1989, and posted public photos of her and Joe hanging out, Taylor now dating someone else and Joe dating one of Taylor's friends. Taylor also admitted that writing "Better Than Revenge" was an immature mistake, saying she knew Joe left her because he wanted to, not because he was "stolen" and they just weren't meant to be. Taylor and Joe were also spotted at Coachella talking and hugging and at one of Taylor's 4th of July parties. It is now the year 2017, and Taylor is dating someone else named Joe, and she and Joe Jonas are good friends, and Taylor's prophecy that she would only watch his life in pictures never came true. All was well.
The signs as: K-drama cliches

ARIES:  when a character goes into a fit of frustration by kicking their legs in the air repeatedly and thrashing their bodies around until the whole bed/couch/floor is a mess and so is their hair

TAURUS:  when character A watches in adoration as character B stuffs their face with delicious food or drinks/having a whole day filled with them eating street food and going clubbing

GEMINI:  the main character always treating the happy-go-lucky side character like crap for comedic effect, but it’s kinda sad bc they never apologize

CANCER:  the infamous umbrella scene. “I dislike you/don’t know you that well, but I can’t let you get soaked in the rain so I’m gonna hold this umbrella/cape over you bc I’m just a good person and I’m totally not interested in you”

LEO:  having 284 different shots/angles of the main characters’ first kiss/hug. That zoom in slo-mo of character A pulling character B into their arms and embracing them for the first time/locking lips with them

VIRGO:  there’s always that ONE THING that has to destroy the couple’s relationship. Whether it’s bc your bride needs to kill you or she dies, or you somehow went back in time a couple hundred years and can’t tell your prince bf

LIBRA:  the main characters always being bound together by destiny such as outside supernatural forces/parallel universes/connecting timelines from the present to the future or past

SCORPIO:  seeing that happy montage of the main couple after all their ups and downs, and knowing something terrible is going to happen shortly after

SAGITTARIUS:  character A tries to convince themselves that they don’t need character B, and do everything they can to distract themselves by working/drinking/dating someone else, only to finally admit to themselves that they’re in love 

CAPRICORN: the rich, cold, mysterious character always falling for the person who needs help…but they’ve convinced themselves that they totally don’t like this person until they finally admit it on like the last episode

AQUARIUS:  having an idol/famous actor who’s worked alongside one of the actors on another series before appear in almost every kdrama, whether it’s a short cameo or one of the main characters

PISCES:  that scene when they clutch their chest and cry waterfalls for seemingly no reason, only for us to find out that something horrible occurred later on to reveal this character’s sadness and why they’re emo

Bathes were supposed to be relaxing, everyone always said that they would be soothing to your aching muscles and wash away your problems. The water was warm against your freezing skin, the bubbles up to your chin and jostling whenever you moved your legs. The air was faintly filled with the sounds of cars driving by on the streets down below, the tires splashing in the puddles of leftover rain. The room was dimly illuminated, your wet hand glistening on the edge of the tub when the candle on the sink flickered patches of light onto your arm, giving it life when it felt so dull. Everything smelled like oranges and vanilla, your skin, your hair, even the bubbles threatening to spill over the edge of the porcelain. It all seemed relaxing, in theory. It was supposed to feel nice and like a reward after a long day, but in reality it was making you want to rip your hair from your scalp.

Because in the silent solitude all you could think about was Chanyeol.

some reincarnation AUs
  • I fell in love with you three lifetimes ago and I’ve been looking for you ever since but I’ve been starting to give up and my friend’s new crush has your eyes and oh god I’m not going to steal someone’s date just because I’m hoping you’re the person I met in a past life (jk yes I am)
  • I’ve met you in every single lifetime and I always hope it will work out but it doesn’t but I’ll still keep finding you again because those few days/months/years together with you are always so worth it 
  •  I meet and fall in love with you in every lifetime at the same age but your age is always different so it never works out and for the first time I’m meeting you when we’re the same age and I’m horrified that I might fuck this up 
  •  I skipped like four cycles of reincarnation and I know you’re pissed at me for leaving you all those lifetimes but it wasn’t my fault please please will you take me back 
  •  We only remember each other in alternating lifetimes so every lifetime we have to find one another and convince each other that we’re soul mates but half the time I won’t believe you and half the time you’re already dating someone else 
  •  I don’t know how to tell you this but the reason you didn’t see me in our last reincarnation cycle is because for some fucked up reason I was reincarnated as your dog 
  •  We keep reincarnating as people who speak different languages and it’s kind of pissing me off because I can never initially confirm if it’s you but at least I keep learning a bunch of cool new languages each lifetime

anonymous asked:

Please bombard me with Pining Sherlock fics. I need some.

You asked for it, you got it Nonny! This is literally my favourite trope in the entirety of existence. I have a tonne of fics, and I’m still sorting all of my bookmarks, so I probably still have more to add. I had SO MANY TO PUT ON THIS LIST, that I had to remove links to the authors, because Tumblr kept deleting all my links. So yes, over 150 fics here below, all from mostly Sherlock’s POV (@holmesthesociopath, this should help with your ask as well until I finish the list of Sherlock POV fics for you)!

Because I’ve been working on this list for over 6 months, please advise me of any broken links and I will do my best to find them again for you!

Get ready to have your face ripped off 🙃

MASTERLIST.

Spring sun shines brightly overhead; soft wind gushes past delicate thighs and pinches at the hems of bright red skirts. The playing field is mostly empty of spectators, just a few younger girls, with awe in their eyes, and a couple of football and basketball players watching the cheerleading squad finish their perfect routine without a hitch. Voices of the girls in pigtails die down into harsh breaths as they wipe away drops of sweat from the arches of their brows and the flats of their foreheads. Some high-five as congratulations, some wave flirtatiously at the boys and they wave back.

“Good job, girls! See you tomorrow, same time, same place.”

With a sharp inhale you fix your white shoelaces and wordlessly accept an offer of water from one of your teammates, Suzy. As you stand up a whiff of your perfume mixed with a tint of sweat greets your nose and you can hardly wait to hit the showers. Your eyes wander around. You see the boys, ones that were so intently watching you and your girls, now approach. Among them is Billy Hargrove – of course he’d be checking you out – and surprise surprise…Steve Harrington.

Dandelions: finished summary!

again, I’m sorry I had to stop this project. I had a LOT more story to tell and my depression just wasn’t letting me have the motivation to do so. School is starting back up again and I knew I wouldn’t be able to work on any comic pieces once that happened so here is the summary of what I want to do with the rest of the story!

Some Reddie headcanons where Eddie starts dating someone else

All the losers are starting to pair off. They’re falling into relationships that have been building for years, and Eddie feels like he’s just. There.

Because he’s had feelings for years, too, okay? But that doesn’t mean they’re reciprocated.

In fact, he knows they’re definitely not.

(They definitely are.)

So when this boy from the grade above him asks him out, he says yes.

And everyone knows that this boy is super bad for him.

All the losers try to tell Eddie that this relationship isn’t healthy for him, and they want to be happy for him, but they want him to be safe.

But Eddie won’t listen to any of them, because Richie said he’s happy for him, and that’s the only sign he needed.

Because of course he wants Richie, but Richie doesn’t want him, so he’ll settle.

Bev threatens to punch Richie, and he just looks confused until Stan calls him out on his bullshit.

“Why do you keep supporting this? You know you’re the only one he’ll listen to.”

And Richie shrugs it off, because he knows it’ll sound pathetic if he tells them the truth. Because he wants Eddie to be happy, and he knows Eddie will be happier with anyone else than he would be with Richie.

So he pretends.

And smiles.

And jokes.

And every day Eddie comes into school, he looks more tired. More drained from constantly fighting with this boy.

And everyone tries to let it go, because nothing they say works, but they’re all worried.

Eddie stops hanging out with them as much, claiming to be spending time with his significant other the way they all do, but half the times he’s actually isolating himself in his room or at school after hours.

Until one day Richie finally loses his mind, because Eddie ditched again, but Richie saw his boy in town alone with his friends.

He goes to Eddie’s house as fast as he can, but he’s clearly not in his room.

But he also can’t be at the arcade or the barrens or the quarry, because all of the losers would have seen him, those are their frequents.

It takes him two hours to end up at school, but it’s worth it when he does. There’s Eddie, sitting on a blanket with his back against the brick wall, bike laying in the grass.

He doesn’t look up at Richie, which is infuriating.

It doesn’t take long for gentle questions that go unanswered to turn into an argument between them.

“I can’t fucking pretend anymore, Eds! He’s toxic! How can you not see how bad he is for you?”

“It doesn’t matter!”

“Of course it matters! Why wouldn’t it?”

“Because at least he cares about me! At least he cares that I exist!”

Richies jaw hangs open, one of those rare moments where he’s speechless - almost speechless, at least for a few seconds, because how could this have happened

How could he have let the most important person in the world think that he didn’t care about him

(For a second he thinks of his parents, but then he’s looking back at Eddie, and he’s gotta do what he does best and talk)

“You think I don’t care about you?”

“Why would you? You’re Richie Fucking Tozier, and I’ve got nothing on you.”

“Fuck, Eds-”

“I told you not to call me that.”

“Just listen to me! Please. I know you ignore half the things that come outta my mouth-”

“I listen to everything you say.”

It’s quiet, after that.

And there it was, twice in one day that Richie almost didn’t know what to say.

(Almost)

And there’s his Eddie, looking at the floor, brown curls falling into his face. His hands are tucked away, hidden in the inside of the sleeves on his oversized sweater. It’s too much.

“Eddie Kaspbrak, I have been in love with you since seventh grade.”

And then there’s tears in Eddie’s eyes, and Richie doesn’t know who closed the distance between them, but Eddie’s face is pressed into the front of his shirt and his hands are holding on to Richie for dear life.

Richie is holding him back as tight as he can, holding him like Eddie is his whole world. His face is pressed against the top of Eddie’s head, and they just stand there like that for a while.

They stand there like there’s no where else to be, because there isn’t.

Eddie conveniently breaks up with the boy from the grade above the next day. The losers don’t ask.

Eddie tells Richie that he isn’t ready to date again, and Richie is super understanding and willing to wait however long it takes, but they still hold hands under the lunch table anyway.

(It only takes a week. Eddie has loved Richie since they met, how could he wait any longer? He hardly even remembers the name of the boy he dated.)

A Brief Elounor 2.0 Timeline (To Date)

19 January: Official Danielle/Louis break-up announcement in the Sun

20 January: Daisy likes first pic of Eleanor on Instagram; Over the next month, she liked 32 different posts and pictures; Phoebe liked 9

20 January: Eleanor posts a picture to Instagram from the UK

22 January: Eleanor likes video of Gigi posted by Tommy Hilfiger like she was still promoting the brand/show

28 January: Eleanor posts instagram story from a hotel in the UK; Had drinks with uni friends there

29 January: Louis refollows Eleanor on Instagram; Russell, his manager, followed a minute later

30 January: The Sun & Mail write articles reintroducing Eleanor

4 February: James Arthur announces on Twitter he’s friends with Louis and just “hangin out” with him; Update Accounts report Harry was at LAX on his way to London

8 February: The day of the Tommy Hilfiger show; Eleanor didn’t attend, but Max did; Louis was in the studio

9 February: Her own UAs are confused about why she didn’t go to the Tommy show, especially since Max did

12 February: James Arthur starts following an Eleanor UA on Twitter

13 February: Louis on the James Corden show; Harry is papped in London

16 February: Eleanor follows Louis on Instagram and likes his selfie; Louis likes Eleanor’s selfie posted months ago of her in the same brand/design as the shirt Louis was papped in, also on the 16th; James Corden then followed Eleanor on Twitter late that night

19 February: The Sun writes an article “1D Star Louis Tomlinson Rekindles Romance with Ex-Girlfried Eleanor Calder” saying they’d been secretly spending time in LA together and she missed the Tommy Hilfiger show specifically to spend time with Louis. 

What does all of this mean?

The effort that went into reintroducing her to this fandom using the actors in the current promo narrative (James Corden, James Arthur) is profoundly contrived. His own sisters accounts set the stage HOURS after the official break-up announcement of his “relationship” with Danielle. The ink wasn’t dry on the print edition of the Sun before Elounor 2.0 had begun. 

They set the stage for the James Arthur reconciliation, too. Louis included him in an Instagram post on 4 February. Then, a week later, James Arthur’s twitter account happens to follow an Eleanor update account? @God why.  

Louis followed Eleanor on Instagram on 29 January. His new “manager,” Russell, who had been on promo stops with him, followed her a minute later. 

Then, on 6 February, James Corden and Louis announced Louis was coming on the show on 13 February. Then on 16 February, James followed Eleanor on Instagram late at night.. 

Even Harry’s flight out of town his own Update Accounts all knew about was part of this puzzle, too. He left town right as the 2 week window of Eleanor’s absence from social media began. Eleanor uses Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat religiously, including documenting her travel to and from London to other parts of the world. This just happens to be the one time in the last 18 months she hasn’t done that. She was also not included in any social media posts by her own friends in LA, so if she was there, did she spend 2 weeks surgically inserted up Louis’ asshole? That’s sure what they want you to believe!

But not even her own UAs are buying it.

They’ve been building a low level reintroduction campaign on social media with his sister’s accounts. Then, they added the additional layer of Louis’ and Eleanor’s social media account. They got relevant, timely actors currently doing promo with Louis to follow her and one of her update accounts. Harry got out of town in true 2013 style, to attend business with Jeff on another continent. Eleanor went ghost on social media, another 2013-2014 tactic. They set up a series of plausible events if you look at the surface, easy to write an article about without looking wildly false. And when all else fails, they’ll lie. That’s the ball game. 

And this is nothing to say of the actual images involved here beyond the strategy behind it. I’m just going to quote @conscious–ramblings here. 

Imagine splitting up with your long term boyfriend after while you dated he told everyone he wouldn’t marry you, and a year later cheated on you publicly. Imagine him then publicly going out constantly with different girls, spreading it all over social media to everyone you both know. Then imagine he knocks up one of the randoms he’s been out with once and her cousin tells everyone who will listen that he was dating the girl while he dated you. Then while he ignores pregnant girl and won’t talk to anyone about it, he starts dating someone else (who looks a bit like a budget version of you mixed with a budget version of his sister). Then after new girl publicly cheats on *him* he slides back into your DMs the next week.

IMAGINE explaining to your mates you are taking him back, let alone the whole world.

So yes, it’s contrived. Yes, it’s annoying. But it’s pretty transparent, too, so don’t give them the power of reacting emotionally if you can. Mock it. Ridicule it. Call out the bullshit. Shove the facts back down their throat. That’s how we get through this.

  • sakura, hinata, ino, and tenten are on their way to train and they overhear all of their teammates calling them weak so they decide to get permission from tsunade to leave and train then they come back super boss level. sometimes comes back with kids and its obvious to tell who’s the dads but said dads are oblivious af to the fact
  • same as the above but the girls become rogue nin and somehow join the akatsuki and fall in love with whichever akatsuki member is in charge of their training
  • same as the above but this time its just sakura and hinata
  • sasuke and karin come back to konoha and someway, somehow, karin turns the entire village against sakura, including fucking tsunade [save for maybe one person that in all honesty sakura isn’t even close to, ex. shikamaru but according to sakura they’re just like siblings] so sakura decides to runaway and she joins the akatsuki who all love her because she’s been through so much and meanwhile in konoha everyone is shocked and hurt sakura left them and decide they must bring her back at all cost
  • same as the above but everyone still thinks sakura is weak etc and don’t want to save her but tsunade realized the error of her ways and makes everyone find her anyway
  • high school au where sakura, hinata, ino, and tenten are the least popular girls at school who constantly get bullied [maybe temari is included, but usually just those four]. sasuke, naruto, shikamaru, and neji are the most popular dudes in school with a shit ton of crazy fangirls. sakura, hinata, ino, and tenten all decide to stick up to the boys who are also bullies who in turn put all their bullying efforts onto the girls. but guess what, kakashi-sensei who is that teacher who’s always late af to his job/class is doing a group assignment AND GUESS WHO’S CONVENIENTLY PAIRED UP???
  • high school au where sakura, hinata, ino, and tenten are all skater girls with no interest in dudes but new cute guys sasuke, naruto, shikamaru, and neji fall head over heels in love at first sight but the girls are like buzz off.
  • did i mention that in all of these high school aus with sakura, hinata, ino, and tenten for some unexplainable reason they all live in this big house/apartment with each other
  • high school au where sakura is the only one being bullied and is for whatever reason the most hated and bullied girl in the entire school and the most popular [usually ino, sasuke, naruto, etc] decide to devise a plot where either naruto or sasuke trick sakura into falling in love with the respective guy then break her heart but they end up falling in love with her for real. sakura typically comes from a poor/troubled home that makes nards or sauce feel super bad
  • high school au where sakura is the most hated and bullied girl in school but finds solace and friendship by somehow befriending the most notorius kids in school that everyone calls the Akatsuki
  • sakura is the most hated and bullied girl in school but instead of the akatsuki thing, she actually has a nighttime persona and ironically enough that nighttime persona is super popular and loved by her peers and one of those peers, usually sasuke, falls for the persona and attempts to woo her whilst also being captivated by sakura whom he is annoyed by but also kind of is intrigued by
  • sakura isn’t being bullied but doesn’t stand out but she finds a new hobby in dancing or fashion or smth and the ppl who got her into it is the akatsuki
  • sakura is some kind of jinchuuriki like naruto like a ten-tailed wolf or smth and has been hated by the entire village her entire life save for best friend hinata. isn’t a sasuke fangirl but after being placed onto team 7 there is a love triangle. sometimes a love square if sai is thrown in as a first time ever 4 man squad thing is added
  •  sakura is chosen to be apart of an interrogation thing where she’s the medic for this particular person who turns out to be apart of the akatsuki but through their constant meetings and healing sessions, sakura falls in love with the person and they fall for her and share some passionate kiss and sakura typically helps this guy escape
  • tsunade has sakura to do an infiltration mission where she literally has to be arrested for some crime, escape authorities, and become a rogue ninja and join the akatasuki whilst somehow getting info about the akatsuki back to konoha. she typically falls in love with whoever she’s partnered with
  • the akatasuki actually need a medic nin to heal itachi’s eyes, so they decide to kidnap tsunade’s apprentice and force her to heal them and keep her forever. sakura typically either falls in love with itachi or with a diff member.
  • usually these above akatsuki fics have two ways of being handled: the characters are all p in character for what we’ve seen on screen or what is usually done– sakura sees the akatsuki as a bunch of goofballs that are actually nice af and konan is like a mother figure
  • sakura finds a box of cats outside her house and decides to take them in. these cats are usually the akatsuki
  • ‘The Future of Mrs Sakura ____’ au where every sakura ship is explored as this fortune teller person shows sakura her various futures with different guys and girls she could be married too. usually these fics are forever incomplete
  • sasuke is back in the village and is super flirtatious with sakura but sakura isn’t looking for love but finds it with someone else who isn’t sasuke. typically neji and sakura and neji support naruhina by being like chaperones on their dates cuz hiashi said thats the only way naruto and hinata can start courting each other
  • sasuke is back in the village, but this time sakura, hinata, ino, tenten, and typically temari shows up too, are all tired of their love lives/crushes so the girls decide to all date someone else. this is either super good or meh. best one i’ve ever read is Three Months y’all should read it, its 50 chapters long but bawse af
  • sakura goes back in time to prevent obito from dying and to save the future because the war is going shit and they’re side is losing. but sakura somehow falls for minato. she either knows who he is and is trying to get him to hook up with kushina but her arrival to the past fucked shit up so he isn’t into kushina anymore or kushina dumped him. or, sakura doesn’t know who minato is and they have a lot of sexual tension going on. naruto is usually brought up a lot of times and minato has this huge sense of jealousy and dislike of this naruto guy, which is amusing to the reader because we know that naruto is his son
  • another time travel fic but sakura has been chosen by some celestial being to change the past of someone who she subsequently falls in love with. like this fic Lost Year where she was trying to prevent Sasori from joining akatsuki it was p cute actually
  • modern rivalry au where sakura, hinata, ino, and tenten are in a band and sasuke, naruto, shikamaru, and neji are in a band
  • sakura, hinata, ino, or tenten wake up in the future where they are married to naruto usually and they have kids and everyone’s an adult.
  • after some incident between suna and konoha, temari is used as a peace offering for an arranged marriage. usually with either naruto or shikamaru
  • canon divergence where after the failed sasuke retrieval thing went down and kakashi was on his way to taking naruto back to konoha, they stumble upon tayuya who miraculously survived the attack and is taken back to konoha and she falls in love with naruto and vice versa. or maybe shikamaru
  • canon divergence where orochimaru took naruto under his wing by ‘saving’ him from his cruel fellow villagers and raising him in oto. naruto is good friends with the sound ninja 4/5 but he goes back to konoha for a spy mission. either falls for kin, tayuya, hinata, or sakura
  • canon divergence au where sakura’s parents died when she was young and was taken in by the akatsuki because konan’s motherly instincts kicked in and she convinced pein [the orange haired yahiko version b4 nagato’s big reveal] to let them keep her. usually titled smth like the akatsuki’s hime/princess/cherry/etc. she goes back to konoha for an infiltration mission if its planned for her to fall for sasuke, naruto, or neji instead of the usual akatsuki members if they just view her as their cute daughter/niece/sister
  • same as the above but it was hinata instead and the hyuga clan was wiped out by the akatsuki but konan couldn’t bring herself to kill this one baby that was in the arms of a dying woman
  • canon divergence where sakura is taken under orochimaru’s wing as a kid and goes back to konoha
  • sakura catches the attention of tobi who likes her a lot and they sneak around to meet and this way before it was confirmed tobi was obito or madara so there was like a shit ton of speculation
  • canon divergence where naruto was the one who saved karin from… wth was it a bear?? but that was before karin was revealed to be naruto’s cousin so after the reveal a lot of those fics were either deleted or forever incomplete

did i leave anything out? anyone else remember these tropes??
