Papa Sasuke

AUTHOR’S NOTE: Sasuke appreciation post. This is in recognition that not all relationships between father and child are smooth sailing (I know mine isn’t), but the rockiest of them all must be Sasuke and Sarada’s. There is always a chance for healing, however. I truly loved writing this fic, so I hope you all truly love reading it. Happy Father’s Day, and do enjoy!

“Does Papa hate me?”

Sakura put the dishes down and turned away from the sink. “Of course not, Sarada,” she frowned. “What brings that question about?”

Sarada shrugged and leaned against the doorway, arms folded as if she were defending her heart. Sasuke had recently agreed to take Boruto under his wing as a student with the Seventh’s permission. Was it wrong of her to feel hurt? To feel betrayed by her own father? She is his flesh and blood, she is the one who carries his same kekkei genkai. Were her skills not good enough for him to train? She decided to dismiss the thoughts and regretted asking her mother the question. Sarada pushed her glasses up her nose and sighed, “No reason.”

Sakura wiped her hands dry before folding her arms across her chest, mirroring her daughter. “You know, I would like to ask the same question, Sarada.” The young Uchiha girl looked up at her mother as blood rushed to her face in embarrassment. Of course, Sakura knew the answer to the question, “Do you hate your Papa?”

Sarada scoffed in reply as an attempt to brush the question off. However, she knew better than to think her mother would let it go that easily and not sense that there was something deeper beneath her question. “Don’t I have reason to?” Sarada grumbled. Before Sakura could begin to defend her husband, Sarada pushed off the door frame and sped off toward the front door. As she was reaching for the handle, the door opened itself too quickly for it to register with Sarada and stubbed her toes. Pain surged from her foot all across her body, so she threw her foot up to hold it in an effort to soothe the shock. She fell back onto her behind, her glasses falling just below her chin, barely staying on her face by the help of her ears.

When her foot’s pain was at a dull ache, she adjusted her glasses to be back in place and looked up to see her father. He was wearing a dark grey vest over a black sweatshirt. Strewn over his shoulder was the cape he normally wore when going out or traveling. He looked down at Sarada in surprise, then offered her his hand. Seeing his gesture, Sarada pushed herself up and hoped he could see that she blatantly ignored him. “I’m heading out,” she said curtly, slipping on her shoes and sliding by him, right out the door.

Sasuke watched her jog down the pathway and take a turn in the direction of the Akimichi residence.

“Sasuke-kun,” Sakura stepped out from the kitchen smiling half-heartedly. “Welcome home.”

Sasuke slipped his shoes off and gave her a brief kiss on the center of her forehead. Sakura felt relieved at his touch and turned away to lead him to their bedroom. When she sensed he wasn’t following her, she turned back and looked at his subtle distressed expression.

“Does Sarada hate me?”

Sakura dragged her hand down her face while she let out an exasperated sigh. “She really is your daughter, you know,” she groaned. Sasuke looked at her, confused. She was well aware that Sasuke had trouble expressing his emotions. Having a prepubescent daughter did not help with his emotional disability; if anything, it only exaserbated the degree of it in front of his family. “Sasuke-kun, do you hate Sarada?”

Sasuke raised an eyebrow. “Of course not.”

“Could you tell her that?”

Sasuke looked away. Sakura knew well, even though his miniscule movements were subtle to others, that he was embarrassed. “Did something happen?” he asked, suddenly focusing all of his attention on his cape.

Sakura placed a hand on top of the cape and pulled it away from him to force Sasuke to look at her. “She’s missed your company for many years, Sasuke-kun,” she said. “The least you can do is tell her you care.” Sakura stared directly into his eyes with genuine concern, something that reminded Sasuke of his own mother. He didn’t like the feeling churning in his stomach. Danger? No. Fear? Somewhat.

Sasuke sighed, defeated. “Where is she now?”

“Probably ran of to Chouchou’s,” Sakura replied. “She’s going to find out soon enough that they’re visiting Shikamaru today.”

Just as Sakura finished her sentence, the front door opened. Sakura glanced over Sasuke’s shoulder and gave a warm smile. “Welcome back,” she said. Sasuke grew tense as he felt his daughter’s eyes scan his back before she huffed away to her room. When the door to her bedroom shut, Sasuke looked back to Sakura almost pleadingly. Sakura only furrowed her eyebrows in irritation and pointed to Sarada’s room. “March,” she ordered. When Sasuke sighed, Sakura walked over and let a hand cradle his cheek. “She needs you.”

Sasuke ran his fingers across her forehead before making his way to their daughter’s room. He raised his hand to knock, but hesitated. Just do it, he thought. He knocked with his knuckles gently.

Sarada knew it was her father. If it were Sakura, she would have called her name or let herself in. Papa has a lot to learn about his own house, Sarada thought bitterly. “Come in,” she called out from her desk. She folded her book and turned to face the opening door. She raised her eyebrows in surprise. She hadn’t seen him so sheepish before: he entered without looking her in the eye, which was a first. His footsteps were timid, as though there may have been traps set up on her floor. “Do you need something?” Sarada asked.

Sasuke looked at her then. Such a confident, strong-willed daughter they have. Her personality radiated with Sakura’s energy. “May I sit?” Sasuke asked. Sarada nodded to the bed. He walked around it and sat in front of her. His legs were so long that his knees were nearly pressed into his stomach when he took his seat. Sarada noticed his clumsy motion and almost scoffed.

“Do you need something?” Sarada repeated, impatience sewn into her tone.

“Your mother told me to talk to you.”

Sarada’s expression grew unamused. “So you don’t want to talk to me,” she clarified.

Sasuke raised his eyebrows in surprise. “I do.”

“But Mama told you to talk to me. If she didn’t, you wouldn’t be here.”

Sasuke opened his mouth to reply. He was already a man of few words, and she was thwacking him with her own, baiting him. Sasuke shook off her smart remark and mirrored her unamused expression. The two of them stared down for a few moments, father and daughter, flesh and blood.

Sakura peered into the room and saw the familiar expression on Sarada’s face. It was an expression that she had never seen on her before, but on her father years ago. He would constantly give their teammate that look. No nonsense with Sasuke. It’s like looking at a picture of him… She really is his daughter, Sakura chuckled to herself, then pressed herself against the wall to listen in further on their conversation. You can do this, Sasuke-kun.

After a few moments, Sasuke broke the silence. “So you hate me.”

It was Sarada’s turn to be surprised. “No,” she answered instantly, not noticing that the word has escaped her mouth. She realized it too late, and then turned away from him, focusing all of her attention on her big bunny plush. “What brought that about?” she grumbled.

Sasuke followed her gaze and recognized the toy he had sent back to Sakura years ago to give to Sarada. Its color was duller and its marble eyes had been scratched over time, but it was surely the one that he picked out himself. “It was handmade in a village seventy miles from here,” he commented.

Sarada glanced at her father from the corner of her eye curiously.

“I picked it out because your mom said you liked rabbits.” He met her gaze. “Was she wrong?”

Sarada reached out and rubbed the one of the bunny’s ears instinctively. “No.”

Silence.

Sarada spoke up next. “So you hate me.”

If she were talking to anyone else but her father, there would be confusion. From hatred, to a bunny, back to hatred. Sasuke understood the train of his daughter’s thoughts, however, and replied instantly, “Never.” He reached out and touched the bunny’s other ear with his rough fingers. “I would never because I could never.”

Sarada stared into her father’s eyes and was taken aback. For the first time, there was pain within them. What shocked her is that she had seen that pain before. However, it was not from him, but from her own reflection. There was a wave of understanding that hit them both. Guilt washed over father and daughter, flesh and blood. For Sasuke, it was guilt for not being there for her every milestone as she grew up. For Sarada, it was guilt for holding his absence against him when he had no control.

“I’m sorry, Sarada.”

Tears welled up in her eyes and she looked down at her lap.

“I’m sorry, Papa.”

Sasuke let go of the rabbit’s ear and rested his hand on her shoulder. When she looked up at him, he let go of her and tapped his fingers on her forehead. Sarada understood, now, that it was a gesture of returns. When Sasuke stood up to leave the room, Sarada threw herself into him and wrapped her arms around his waist. Sasuke was taken aback for a moment, and only a moment, before he rested a hand on his daughter’s back and gave her a reassuring pat.

Sarada let go and returned to her desk. She put her hand back on her book. When Sasuke closed the door behind him, Sarada looked at the bunny resting on her bed. She stood and crawled onto her covers and hugged the bunny tightly, breathing in the scent of her father’s travels.

On the other side of the door, Sasuke closed his eyes tiredly. When he opened his eyes, Sakura was there in front of him. “Good job,” she mouthed. She leaned in and whispered, “You really are her father.”

'Teen Wolf' Boss on Season 5's Rocky Friendships, New Villains: "Plenty of Bodies Drop"

Showrunner Jeff Davis tells THR that Tyler Hoechlin’s departure is an “opporunity to refocus” the MTV series.

When the MTV drama wrapped up season four, Scott (Tyler Posey) and his pals were doing battle with the Berserkers, leading him to even attack Kira (Arden Cho). Finally, with Liam’s assistance, Scott broke free from their bones and learned to handle his Alpha powers without losing control. Meanwhile, Peter Hale (Ian Stuart Bohen) was headed to Eichen House, and the other teens were finally back at Beacon Hills.

With graduation looming for the gang, Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis tells The Hollywood Reporter that this season will be a trying one for Scott and Stiles (Dylan O'Brien), who will experience “some of their rockiest moments” as friends. Part of this is due to the arrival of the show’s newest baddies, the Dread Doctors.

Davis also talked with THR about how Tyler Hoechlin’s (Derek Hale) absence will change the season’s focus, which new characters will cause problems for our heroes and how much longer the series is likely to last.

There appears to be a lot of change in store for the characters, especially with graduation nearing. How will this season differ from previous ones?

First of all, this season will be 20 episodes, and [the 10th episode] we’re plotting as a big cliffhanger for the season, so we’re going to do some of our biggest cliffhangers yet. It’s not going to be an easy season for Scott and his friends. One of the things we wanted to do most in this season was test their friendships in a way we’ve never done before, and actually test Scott’s role as a leader. One of the themes of this season is failure of leadership, whether Scott can survive that.

An opening scene from the premiere was released early, showing Lydia (Holland Roden) discovering her new powers at Eichen House. What can viewers expect from that storyline and from the premiere in general?

They’ll certainly be shocked at where Lydia has ended up in Eichen House and what she’s going to face in the future. The events that have landed her in Eichen House are going to remain a mystery for a while, but the structure of this season might come as a surprise, as well as all the challenges that Scott is going to face. One thing I can say about that scene is, it’s not in her head, and there is a reason she’s seeing Aiden (Max Carver) standing before her. But what we’re seeing is Lydia having mastered her powers, and much of that will be explained in the season coming.

It sounds like this will be a much more physically demanding season for Holland.

She’s been fantastic. She’s really taken to it, too. This is something she’s so excited about. She has wanted to do these kinds of things, these kinds of stunts for a while. Lydia has a resolve in the season to learn how to fight. She’s realized that she can’t protect herself in quite the same way that Scott and the others can, and it gets to her. She decides that she needs to learn.

What’s in store for Scott and Stiles’ friendship this season?

The new villains are going to cause a lot of conflict, so it’s going to be hard for them. One of things we really wanted to do this season was really stretch their relationship, and we kind of consider it a kind of romance — a bromance. In all good romances, you have to have them break up at some point, so there may be the possibility of a breakup between Stiles and Scott. There are going to be a variety of factors. One thing about this season as well, it’s also a season of secrets. People keeping things from each other far too often, so we’re going to see how secrets and these minor betrayals get in the way of friendships, but these bad guys will definitely play a part of it as well.

How do the Dread Doctors fit into the world, and how do they differ from the show’s previous villains?

Our new masked villains, they have their own new mythology. They’re inspired by a variety of things from history, including German scientists from World War II and plague doctors [from the Middle Ages]. What I can say about them is, they are scientists who worship the supernatural, and they have very bad, nefarious plans for the town of Beacon Hills. They definitely have their own challenges. Whenever we try to create new villains, we want to make them as scary and as intriguing as the ones that came previously. And I like these characters quite a bit — we’re having fun with them in the writers’ room.

Another new character joining the mix is Theo (Cody Christian). How soon will we learn what his connection is to Beacon Hills?

He definitely does have a mysterious past. We’ll find out that the Alpha that bit him is someone connected to Scott and the others. He’s got a history, and he’s going to bring in a new dynamic to Scott’s pack as he tries to win their friendship and their trust. [But] Stiles will definitely not trust him at first.

How will Tyler Hoechlin’s departure affect this season, and how soon might we seen him pop back up in Beacon?

Any time an actor leaves the show, we definitely feel the loss. It’s like being a parent and watching your kid go off to college. You miss them desperately, but you wish the best for them. We took Tyler Hoechlin’s departure as an opportunity to refocus on the teens of Teen Wolf, and that’s given us a tremendous amount of narrative freedom this season. I hope Derek comes back into the story at some point but at the moment can’t say when.

There is talk that this season will up the gore factor. Was that a conscious decision?

A bit, absolutely. I think more than gore, what we wanted to really concentrate on was making it scarier. We employ directors who love blood for some reason. [Laughs] We’ve really put our all into amping up the fear factor of the show. We’re quite excited about the new characters, the new villains and scaring the living hell out of our viewers.

Does that mean there are big deaths on the horizon?

I can say there’s plenty of death in Teen Wolf — plenty of bodies drop this season in horrifying ways. This is certainly a season of dread.

How many seasons do you see the show lasting after this one?

There’s always talk of more. I always like to say, if the network is behind and if we still have stories to tell that get us excited, we’ll probably go for it.

Teen Wolf’s fifth season premieres June 29 on MTV.

summerbucketlist-2015 asked:

Why do you wish you were grunge? Just wondering. You said ask me whatever so thats why.

Umm.. Well, there’s this girl I know.. I think her name’s Cameron, anyways, she was the most punk-rockiest, heavy metal girl I knew. She was so crazily grungey that everyone was envious, including me. She also had a dog, I think his name was Darwin or something, but he completed her look. So I aspire to be as grunge as them. {I’m being completely facetious.. Hi Cameron and Deacon. 😂💜💫}

I asked him if he was ready to leave the park, so he walks off and says he wants to climb the mountain. He then proceeds to scale up the rockiest, steapest, most overgrown path. I stand there wearing my poor shoe choice and white shirt, thinking this is a horrible idea, this is how I fall and break my leg, this is how our bikes get stolen. And he doesn’t care. This is the fun way, the 10-almost-11-year-old way, the stop overthinking you idiot way. So I follow him. And I don’t fall and break my leg. Our bikes don’t get stolen. I don’t even get my shirt dirty, though my shoes are sort of beyond repair. He leads me to a field of flowers overlooking the neighborhood, and we have the best afternoon I’ve had in a while.

God Bless little brothers and rocky paths.

Andrew Shaw (Season Review from ESPN.com)

Andrew Shaw, forward

2014-15 cap hit: $2 million
Age: 23
Season stats: 15 goals, 11 assists, minus-8

Season recap:
Shaw had his rockiest professional season. He has prided himself on his defensive consistency, and that was lacking this season.

He had a minus-12 goal differential in 5-on-5 play. He had a plus-15 differential last season and a plus-9 differential in the 2012-13 season.

His production was also down from when he set career-highs with 20 goals and 39 points last season.

He did finish the year strong after being moved to the right wing on the team’s checking line. He had five goals and 12 points during the Stanley Cup run.

Season highlight:
Shaw played well throughout the Western Conference finals. He had three goals and one assist and was a plus-1 in the series.

Season lowlight:
Shaw had zero goals, one assist and was a minus-6 for the first eight games of January.

Final grade:
C

Inside the numbers:
Shaw’s 108 career points rank him seventh among all 2011 draft picks. He was selected at No. 139 by the Blackhawks.

Quotes:
Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville on Shaw’s health prior to Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals: “He couldn’t even get through the first drill and his back seized up on him. He didn’t go to the hotel that day. They stayed here all day. They worked on him all day, didn’t know if he’d be able to play, couldn’t even move after practice. His back completely seized up on him. I knew he’d find a way to play.”

What’s next:
Shaw could be among the players the Blackhawks shop this offseason. Basically, anyone who makes a decent amount of money and is not among the core could go.

Shaw has one year left on his two-year, $4 million contract. If he does remain with the Blackhawks, it’ll be interesting to see whether Quenneville keeps him on the wing or returns him to third-line center.

This has got to be the rockiest year of our friendship. Like ever. I miss him so much. I miss his clingyness. God i never thought id miss him calling me every now and then. His texts. OMG HE’S LIKE A TOUDOU TO ME. Makes sense tho he’s a leo (so am i). Just ugh. I miss him. He’s been cold for like 4 days now. Now i’m wondering if what i did was bad. He’s my bestfriend and i wont do anythign bad to him. :( uh. I miss him so bad

4

We dwell in each other’s prayers by day by night. And that is what keep us moving together even in the rockiest road ✨
