The White Dress.

This story is about my friends MIL, and her wedding. Strap in guys, this is a wild ride in which I did THE THING that got me banned from any of her family functions. (Plus a few threats of dismemberment and bodily harm)

A good friend of mine from university was getting married! They had been a couple since Junior year of college, through her 2 years in the peace corps and currently her return to this continent. 6 years in total. She had been to all manner of family functions and always came back with a strange story about how she thinks her MIL secretly hates her. But she being a very quiet and sweet person pushed those thoughts aside.

Point 1: She is vegetarian and jewish, husband is not. She was invited and went to Christmas dinner and figured she would just eat sides, as well she brought a vegetarian casserole. MIL, after knowing her for THREE years, and being told by husband a few weeks before about not to forget friend doesn’t eat meat…proceeded to put meat in every dish. Friend drank water and ate her casserole the whole night while MIL cried to everyone that friend was so rude for not eating her cooking.

I feel like Sakura’s intelligence isn’t appreciated enough
  • She was the only one to not cheat durin the exam and to know all the answers
  • Sakura was able to create the antidote to the sasori poison.It’s impressive considering how sasori itself said it was almost impossibe
  • Her whole strategy to defeat sasori is itself the biggest proof of her intelligence and abilites
  • Memorizing hand and strings movement pattern in order to foresight Sasori’s attacks, only with observation. This is similar feat that Shikamaru had in Part 1, against Tayuya. When he figured out Tayuya’s hands moves when she played the flute. But, in my opinion reading a master puppeteer moves is quite more complex than that.
    Then we have medical ninjutsu itself and the extensive knowlage and chakra control required.

  • she realised that Tobi was removing parts of his body from existence 
  • She helped  to decipher Jiraiya’s dying message to find out more about the Akatsuki leader, Pain
  • Finds out zetsu’s identity
  • Interrogates the Zetsu about how he was able to get onto the compound undetected.

  • Together with this information and a report Yamato had compiled on Zetsu, she pieces together the Zetsu’s abilities.

  • Preformed an autopsy on the body of a Zetsu clone and realized the similarity in their DNA to that of Yamato and by extension, Hashirama’s.

  • Piecing together then begin to piece together the truth behind the White Zetsu Army clones.

  • Mostly Sakura’s elaboration.

And this

Their Feelings Are Connected

Sakura was the one who first told Sarada in Naruto Gaiden Chapter 1 that their hearts are connected to Sasuke’s. Thus, she was the one who introduced basically the main idea of Naruto Gaiden - that, no matter how far away they are from each other, her, Sarada and Sasuke’s hearts will always be connected to one another’s:

After hearing her mother’s words, Sarada asked how she could be certain about that fact:

Despite this, Sakura unfortunately couldn’t answer Sarada’s question back then due to what happened to their house right after Sarada had asked that.  

Still, in Naruto Gaiden Chapter 10, after the fight had eventually finished, Sarada remembered her mother’s words from a while back:

Deeply desiring to know if her father feels the same way and agrees with what her mother had previously stated, Sarada asked Sasuke if he believed that his feelings are truly connected to Sakura’s, to which he offered an affirmative answer:

But Sarada wanted to hear more. She wanted to completely understand why both Sasuke and Sakura were certain about that. So, she asked her father the exact same question she had asked Sakura in Naruto Gaiden Chapter 1:

The difference is that, unlike Sakura who back then was unable to answer Sarada’s question due to an external factor, this time Sasuke was able to offer Sarada the answer she had been waiting for so long:

Sasuke’s answer is incredibly important and Sarada immediately understood this. To quote myself from a previous post of mine, what Sasuke meant while saying this was that Sarada is the living proof of him and Sakura being connected, thus basically stating that she is the proof of him and Sakura loving each other. 

Therefore, he basically said that, if he and Sakura hadn’t loved each other, Sarada wouldn’t have existed. She wouldn’t have been born.

But she exists and her simple existence basically represents the love between her parents. They decided to transform their love into a beautiful, precious child and this fact is what is connecting their feelings.

And Sarada understood this right away, as right after hearing Sasuke’s words, she started crying happily and was exremely relieved:

^ This panel is of great importance, as this was the exact moment when Sarada understood it all, due to her father’s words. This was when she finally understood that Sakura truly was her real mother in every single sense of the word, including biologically. This was when she understood that her very existence shows the deep connection between her parents and the fact that they truly love each other. This was when she understood that the three of them would always be connected, no matter what. All of these facts immediately brought tears of joy to Sarada’s eyes.  

Therefore, Sakura was the one who introduced the idea that her and Sarada’s hearts are connected to Sasuke’s, Sarada was the one who kept this idea extremely dear to her throughout the entire story and deeply wanted to fully understand it and Sasuke was the one who completed this circle and, after agreeing with his wife’s words from Naruto Gaiden Chapter 1, offered the answer which explained everything Sarada wanted so much to know about the connection between her mother and father and the connection between herself and her parents. Their hearts will always be connected. After all, the love between the three of them is the real deal

Haha ! Poor Sakura fans the resent stats that came out for team 7 just proves how weak she is 😂😂😂😂


When excluding the chakra attribute (since Naruto’s is unknown), then the average attribute levels for each member of Team 7 are as follows:

Naruto - 130, Sakura - 140.4, Sasuke - 140.4

When including chakra, Sakura would undoubtedly have the lowest attribute average, but remember who her team mates are. No one in the Narutoverse comes close to Naruto and Sasuke in terms of their skill and power. Therefore, Sakura having a lower attribute average cannot in any way, shape or form be used as evidence to suggest that she’s a weak fighter in general. These stats show that in terms of Sakura’s overall strengths and weaknesses, she’s at least in the same league as Naruto and Sasuke:

So if you think this somehow proves how weak she is, then I hate to think how utterly worthless you’d think everyone else would be in comparison.

I’d also like to point out that for their skill ratings, both Sasuke and Sakura have 14 stars in total, while Naruto has 11. So I’d advise you not to judge character competency in battle from their stats, they don’t indicate their overall strength.

You know what I LOVE about naruhina?

That their only moments of interaction are followed by the most important narusaku scenes.

Hinata’s sucidal confession

Is followed by the most beatiful and important ns moment

I have also a rant in my blog so check it out if you want

Hinata’s attempt to free naruto from the guittrip

Is followed by naruto flirting with her in front of HIS  DAD

Hinta abbandoning once again her commrades to go after naruto, while failing in the most pathetic way

Is followed by one of the most beatiful scenes in the manga. It showed once again how sakura is the one to care the most about naruto’s dream. IT SHOWED HOW MUCH OF AN GREAT HEROINE SHE IS


Rather than hate, to me it seems just jealosy towards the ns fandom and I’m not even a narusaku shipper lmao

fellow Christians!

Do any Christians I follow have a sort of middle ground on abortion? I used to be pro-choice 5ever and then I kinda realized that a human being isn’t not a human being bc it’s at a different level of development.. it’s value is the same etc. But I also know criminalizing abortion doesn’t apparently work either? Like it doesn’t prevent abortions, it makes it worse on the mothers/pregnant people. And also I know of lots of situations where people are in really shitty situations and they can’t just, like, offer up their suffering and poverty that is heightened by the keeping the pregnancy to Christ, right. And like. Blah. Idk? Thoughts ?
