nothing is true

Submission: Switch Up

So amusing thought. We all know that Ino is to Sakura what Sasuke is to Naruto. So what if we took their stories (NOT their personalities) and just…swapped things around…? Imagine this:

Sakura is an orphan, outcasted by the village for reason’s unknown (maybe in this world, she’s the jinchuuriki, maybe it’s for a different reason). So her goal is to become the best Med-Nin in the world, and FORCE the village to acknowledge her (maybe she also wants to become Hokage, maybe not, it’s a bit of a toss-up at this point). She’s got the smarts, the control and the willpower to do it, but has never has a friend in her life or any family to speak of. 

Enter Ino, a traumatized clan orphan who watched her clan get slaughtered (Maybe the Yamanaka clan in this AU are what the Uchiha were to the village a la cannon. Powerful for their mind-control powers, but feared all the same. Maybe instead of the Sharingan being the catalyst for nine-tails attack, it was a Yamanaka who somehow managed to enter the mind of Kurama). I have no idea who does it, but maybe it’s someone close to Ino. Broken and alone, she pushes herself to the limit in an attempt to be stronger, to kill and avenge her clan. Her goal? Kill the person who took everything from her. Nothing else matters. (That’s not true. In her heart, she knows all she wants is to have a family again).

So of course they get put on the same team, why wouldn’t they…and sparks fly.

How could they not, with personalities so similar but so different at the same time. They’ve both been left behind by a village that was suppose to protect them. Left in the dust by a broken system, left to pick up the pieces of their broken lives. Both just want a family, friends to laugh with, a shoulder to cry on. But they go at it in different ways. Sakura gives life. She’s a medic, of course she does. She’s gonna save as many lives as she can, and prove to the world that she is more than her past, more than whatever it is that makes people look at her in disgust and fear (even if she has no idea why). Ino is the avenger, she brings death. It’s all she’s ever known, how can she not? She’s gonna kill who ever took away her world, and if someone stands in her way? She’ll get rid of them, one way or another. 

They hate each other. They hate that they can see themselves in the other’s eyes. A sad, lonely child looking for a place, a person to call home. They are enemies, they are rivals…and somewhere along the way, they become friends.

Of course, cannon events still happen. Ino leaves the village, Sakura tries and fails to get her back. Ino becomes a missing nin, while Sakura claws her way up and becomes a hero. Ino still triggers the Fourth Ninja War, and Sakura still chases her relentlessly. The final epic battle is not between two overpowered boys with the power to level villages, but two overpowered women with enough power to destroy a world and a half, and the brains to do it with style. 

………………

I’d imagine things would go…differently. Of course, there’s still a matter of if everyone else keeps their roles or if that’s mixed up too, but hey details. (Also, I think the idea of Naruto and Sasuke being best friends since childhood, but also rivals in love would be…amusing, to say the least. It’d be even funnier if the object of their affection were Ino (because Ino and Sasuke switch roles) or Sakura (because you know…Team 7), who both either 1) do not have time for this shit, or 2) are too gay for this shit.

1. Don’t rush. If there’s something you’ll miss, it will be the time you have now.
2. Stop wasting time blaming yourself and blaming others–things happen for a reason, even if the reason will make sense ten years down the road.
3. Don’t stay around toxic people just because you’re afraid of being alone. Being your own best friend has its perks, and there’s no one else you’ll spend more time with than yourself.
4. Be yourself, unapologetically. It may be embarrassing now, but you will learn that there’s nothing more interesting than someone true to themselves.
5. Don’t be afraid of voicing your thoughts, don’t be afraid of calling out people that hurt you.
6. Write. Write. Write. It will help you clear your mind and also distract yourself when you’re anxious. Writing will be your best friend.
7. Learn all you can, and enjoy it all you want. Knowledge is the only thing truly yours.
8. Be the friend you need, the friend you want.
9. Read all you can. You’ll find the words you can’t say in the lips of others, you’ll find shelter.
10. Love yourself. That’s the only love you will have, constantly, and the only one that will stick with you even if you fail.

if i was a good child they wouldn’t have been beating me


if i didn’t deserve this it wouldn’t be happening to me


if i was stronger this wouldn’t hurt 


if I wasn’t a coward I wouldn’t be afraid


if they’re hurting me it’s to make me better


if I controlled myself properly I would get over this


if I was worth anything I would stop being a nuisance to everyone


if anyone found me important my feelings would matter


if it was possible to love me someone would have loved me by now.

if you felt this, you’ve been abused.

Student 1: "Are you sure you like girls? Are you sure it's not just a phase?" Student 2: "No I'm not sure. It's a Thursday and I'm not sure of anything on Thursdays. Only fools who want to get taken are sure on Thursdays. It's why not a single professor will schedule an exam on Thursdays. So, are you sure you want to ask that question?"

Stephen Wrabel  has made a strong and beautiful anthem about transgender lives 

“This song is the most important thing to me that I have ever done and probably will ever do. It’s the closest thing to my heart,” Wrabel tells Billboard. (Photo above)

“I came out as gay around 23 into a church in Los Angeles that told me I could and should change; that I was unnatural and wrong. I hope this reaches anyone in need of it and makes them feel like they’re not alone.”

The main role is played by trans actor August Aiden.

I love this song!

Here are the lyrics:

No, your mom don’t get it
And your dad don’t get it
Uncle John don’t get it
And you can’t tell grandma ‘cause her heart can’t take it
And she might not make it
They say, “don’t dare, don’t you even go there. Cutting off your long hair. You do as you’re told.”
Tell you, “wake up, go put on your makeup. This is just a phase you’re gonna outgrow.”

There’s something wrong in the village
In the village, oh
They stare in the village
In the village, oh
There’s nothing wrong with you
It’s true, it’s true
There’s something wrong with the village
With the village
There’s something wrong with the village

Feel the rumors follow you from Monday all the way to Friday dinner
You got one day of shelter, then it’s Sunday hell to pay, you young lost sinner
Well I’ve been there, sitting in that same chair
Whispering that same prayer half a million times
It’s a lie though
Buried in disciples
One page of the Bible isn’t worth a life

You are the “tragedy”, Jon.
