haha this moment

anonymous asked:

im so excited that you're taking requests because I love everything that you write!!!😇 could you maybe write the recent ss moment with the hawk and what sasuke was thinking

I’m honestly surprised I didn’t get more requests to analyse this moment haha. I’ve seen two or three really good theories about what was going through both Sasuke and Sakura’s minds during this moment (Sasuke knowing it was her birthday, or having her convey congratulations from both of them the way couples are supposed to do, etc.) 

I would love to have written something like that, but the thing is, Konoha Hiden happens before Sasuke Shinden, so Sasuke has not yet entered the mindset of wanting to return to the village and pursue a relationship with Sakura (at least in my headcanon). However, after watching the episode, I definitely think that this is where he finally had his Ah-hah! moment.

That said, I hope you enjoy my interpretation of what was going through his mind in the lead-up to the moment we saw on screen. It’s a little longer than 1000 words,because my brain decided to put some more details in, but I don’t think you’ll be too unhappy about that? Because it’s headcanon, I decided to include it in my Legacy of Fire series ^_^

Also, apologies for any errors, I was hoping to get at least one of the MANY requests I got today done for this Friday.

You can find it here

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
