the word should have more people like him

anonymous asked:

I'm probably a little ignorant but... About the list of writers you would punch: why?

dude don’t worry you’d probably only read most of these pretentious fucks if you were a pretentious english major like me lmao

  1. charles dickens: too many characters. ridiculously long books (like an average of 500+ pages) even though most of his shit could have had half the word count if he wasn’t so fucking longwinded. his plots are creative but at what cost
  2. f. scott fitzgerald: overrated imo. also became an alcoholic later in life, probably stole a lot of ideas from his wife, used her as his ‘muse’ but didn’t like. support her when she had mental health issues. fittingly, most of his female characters are weird unattainable trophies instead of actual people
  3. john steinbeck: this is more of a personal opinion but he’s so boring. i actually like his writing style (it’s pretty easy to understand), but he deserves a punch for making me read grapes of wrath
  4. william faulkner: reading as i lay dying is what i imagine having a stroke feels like. i’ve been informed that i should dislike faulkner more for being a cheating bastard than his actual writing though
  5. percy shelley: ‘edited’ frankenstein by swapping out common words for pretentious alternatives and making it 200% harder to read. i’ll never forgive him for what he did to that beautiful book
  6. ayn rand: blah blah blah helping people is bad blah blah blah capitalism is good blah blah blah altruism is a plague. that’s the plot of every single one of her novels and she’s a longwinded fuck, so she’ll hit you over the head with that social darwinistic bullshit for 700+ pages. racist and pretentious and i think i actually want to fight her the most

honestly i feel like i would punch most 19th-20th century writers at least once though

So like, post-Joseph route AU where, after Amanda leaves to go and have ice cream with the Emmas, the rest of the cul-de-sac are still hanging around and talking, and Lucien, of all people, notices that MC isn’t looking all too great.

And Lucien has nooo idea what to do. Because man, he hasn’t said more than a few words to the guy.

But MC is just looking so miserable, sitting on the porch by himself, staring at the present his daughter had given him. None of the other dads have noticed yet. And maybe Lucien should just get an adult to go and check if MC is okay. But he doesn’t.

Because in that moment, there’s something about MC that reminds Lucien of his own father - tired and worn out after a long day at war with the world.

So Lucien, against his better judgement, goes up and sits down next to MC.

“You okay…sir?” he asks, because goddamn it may have been more than a month since they’d moved into the neighbourhood, but Lucien still has no earthly clue what the guy’s last name is.

MC looks up, surprised, and gives a tired smile. “I’m fine,” he says.

He doesn’t look fine. At all. So Lucien sits with him, and they talk for a while.

Lucien is pleasantly surprised to find that MC is actually a kinda cool dude. He’s a huge dork, of course, but that kind of comes with the territory of being a father.

By the time Damien comes over to thank MC for the lovely party and to let Lucien know they’re going home, MC’s tired smile looks a lot more genuine.

When Lucien bids him goodbye, MC just laughs and ruffles his hair.

“You’re a pretty good kid after all,” he teases, and Lucien just slaps his hand away with an embarrassed grumble.

Damien has no idea what’s going on, but far be it for him to complain when someone notices how brilliant his son is.

After that, Lucien doesn’t really see much of MC, and he mostly forgets about their conversation at the party.

But after Amanda finally moves away and MC no longer has anyone to badger him about getting out, MC kinda becomes a social hermit. The only other dad he actually hangs out with is Craig, because they’re college buddies.

And when a month has passed and Lucien realizes it’s been a while since he’s seen their new neighbour, and he remembers how tired MC had looked that day at the party, he feels a bit worried.

So, he asks his dad if they can invite MC over for dinner at their place one day.

Damien is a bit confused, but he agrees.

And it all starts off kind of awkward, but by the end of the night, MC and Damien are laughing together as if they’ve known each other all their lives, and Lucien can’t remember the last time he saw his father so happy.

After that, MC and the Bloodmarchs take turns inviting each other over for dinner once a week, and go out together on weekends as a family.

When Lucien has to miss one of their dinners together one night because he’s sleeping over at Ernest’s house, Damien walks into his bedroom to freshen up before MC arrives, and finds a box of condoms on his pillow that definitely wasn’t there before.

Damien just about dies of embarrassment right then and there, and can’t look MC in the eye for a solid hour.

When MC finally caves and asks what’s wrong, Damien tells him what Lucien had done, trying to play it off as a hilarious joke - “Kids, amiright?” (His voice is a little too high to be convincing, and his face is beet red).

MC stares at him thoughtfully for a long moment, thinking over how to respond, before finally his lips pull into a sly grin.

“Well, no point in letting those condoms go to waste, right?”

Damien chokes on the sip of wine he’d just taken, looking up at MC with bewilderment.

While MC tries to apologize through his hysterics, Damien is trying to figure out if the offer was sincere because holy hell does he wish it was.

(When Lucien returns home the next morning to find a sleep-rumpled MC cooking breakfast in their kitchen and with lovebites scattered all across his neck, the shit-eating grin doesn’t leave his face for the rest of the day.)

Hate That You Know Me (So Well)


Adrien and Marinette discuss Chat Noir.

Can also be found on and AO3.

“Can I ask you a question?”

She was lying face down on his carpet so he was left to interpret the muffled “yrsfh”. She hadn’t said no to him yet so he gave in to precedence.

“Does Chat Noir know?”

Marinette didn’t answer him right away so he leaned over the side of the couch to look down at her.  She turned her face so it was no longer buried in his rug and one very blue, very wary eye peeked up at him.

“No,” She whispered.  “No one was supposed to know.”

It had been like this for an hour now. 

She seemed to still be coming out of shock.  After all, it wasn’t every day your classmate stumbles upon your biggest secret. Adrien wished, not for the first time, that he had chosen any other alley, if only to spare her whatever she was feeling right now.

“I’m sorry,” He said, again.

She turned her face back into the carpet.  “Snrt yr fawl.”

And, really, it wasn’t.

Not when he considered the increase in akuma attacks over the past few months or the fact that he and Marinette had been circling each other for over a year.  In fact, Adrien was surprised that they hadn’t stumbled upon each other transforming sooner.

It really was obvious now that he knew.

Of course Ladybug was Marinette.  There was no one else in Paris like her.

And if, after the warm, pink light faded, her startled eyes met his with anything but absolute despair he wouldn’t have hesitated pulling her to him.

As it was, he had still been reeling from the gunshock that was watching his beautiful classmate (had she really been so close) transform into his beautiful partner, when she crumpled in on herself shaking no, no, no, no.

And when Adrien finally did realize what was happening and started to move forward she was already up, fragile and broken and strong.

“Don’t say a word.”

Caught in the steel of her eyes he could only nod before she threw her yoyo up and out, vanishing from the alleyway.

There was, after all, an akuma.

Do u have any tips for writing English essays?

hello! i have some tips, but i’m only going to list a few because if i keep going this is going to turn into a masterpost of sorts haha! 

some tips i have for you: 

  • start with the conclusion first, and make it boom
    • this sounds weird, but it works 
    • once you figure out a bomb ending, you can somewhat get a sense of how you want to lead into it
    • make your reader think after reading your last sentence 
  • throughout the body paragraphs, lead the reader, but let them know where they are going first
    • first sentence should be the “what/who” 
    • the next few sentences should be the “why” 
    • separate ideas by paragraph to make your argument concise
  • change up your sentence length and structure to make it flow
    • if you have a bunch of plain sentences with no punctuation, one after the other, that’s really dragging the reader through the swamp. 
    • seriously, that’s like getting stopped at every red light. let them go sometimes! 
    • i’ll show an example: 
      • No changes in structure: “Romeo and Juliet was a tragedy. It was about two kids in love. It all ended in pain. There was nothing good about it. They should have never met.” 
      • Changes in structure: “Romeo and Juliet was a tragedy. It was about two kids in love, and yet it all ended in pain. Was there anything good about it? No… Turns out, they should have never met.” 
  • try not to put the same word close together 
    • i don’t know why this is bothersome, but it just is 
    • instead of saying something like, “Romeo was a good kid. People talked about Romeo all the time.” 
    • say something like, “Romeo was a good kid; people talked about him all the time.” 
    • this goes for regular words, not just names

if you want more tips, i have a bunch. just let me know and i’ll think about writing a longer list!

There is sadly little information about the relationship between Jeffrey Dahmer and his brother David; however, what does exist is intriguing.  Jeff was six years older, which from the beginning created a natural distance.  Still, the two boys shared a room until David moved out with his mother after their parents’ divorce, and their father Lionel Dahmer reported in an interview with Larry King that they got along fairly well.  David knew about Jeff’s habit of going out to the woods to beat trees when their parents argued, and he also knew about his activities involving dead animals.  At one point, Jeff decided to play big brother and teach David a lesson in biology by dissecting a dead mole in front of him, placing its heart and liver in formaldehyde.  As the two grew older, though, they drifted apart.  Maybe all the positive attention and favoritism their parents showed David initiated a disconnect, even though Jeff denied ever being jealous.  More likely, Jeff found it more and more difficult to relate to David as they made their way through distinctly different paths in life; he admitted as much to his probation officer in 1990 by stating that he felt he had “nothing in common” with his younger brother because he was in college.  

Various events piling up over the years built a wedge between them, as on several occasions David had the singular misfortune of getting a glimpse of who his brother really was.  David was the first person in the family to discover that Jeff was gay.  If their mother Joyce Flint is to be believed, David uncovered this information by witnessing teenage Jeff naked in bed with another boy.  Considering that Flint’s account has never been corroborated, however, it is at least verifiable that he realized his brother’s sexuality when he found gay pornographic magazines inside Jeff’s suitcase that was shipped home after his army discharge.  Another incident that undoubtedly challenged the brothers’ relationship occurred when a then-adult David visited his grandmother’s house while Jeff was still living there. Since there were no other places to sleep, the two men were forced to share a bed.  Jeff would later say that over the course of the night he “felt the urges and everything to be with someone” and touched his brother.  In Jeff’s own words, David “didn’t go for that at all” and promptly rebuffed him.  

Being molested by one’s older brother puts a bit of a strain on the sibling dynamic.  So does having that same brother arrested for child molestation and later found responsible for the murders of seventeen people.  Incredibly, however, it seems that David forgave Jeff for all of these things, as the two maintained contact by exchanging letters throughout Jeff’s time in prison up until his death.  It should be noted that David did change his last name once the details of Jeff’s crimes came to light, but more likely as a means for a young man to escape the dark shadow surrounding his family history than as a personal rejection of his brother.

Ushijima Wakatoshi may be an antagonist, but he is not a malicious person

@shiratorizawa-headcanons’ recent post reignited the fervour and indignation I feel about popular fanon mischaracterisations of Ushijima, so here we go.

First thing’s first. Ushijima is an antagonist. That much is clear. He is clearly intended to provide opposition to the main characters of the series, pushing them to grow. Their goal has to be accomplished through defeating him.

However, antagonist is not synonymous with evil, or “bad person”. L from Death Note is the antagonist to Light Yagami, but I’m sure everyone knows who poses more of a danger to society between the pair of them.

More importantly, I feel the need to clarify and debunk popular fanon interpretations of Ushijima.

“You should have gone to Shiratorizawa” is a joke that probably everyone who watches Haikyuu!! knows. It’s gone from a slightly funny meme to a stale, overused, tasteless joke. While I do not condemn the use of it as a joke, it has affected the way people view Ushijima’s character.

And is it really accurate or relevant? Name one instance where Ushijima has actually physically said the words “You should have gone to Shiratorizawa.” to Oikawa. When? Yes, he has said that “He should have gone to Shiratorizawa”. To Hinata and Kageyama. And his reason? A powerhouse team like Shiratorizawa that actually makes it to nationals and has a chance of winning would be more beneficial to a setter of Oikawa’s calibre. There is nowhere in canon where he has stalked, harassed and haggled Oikawa, begging or forcing him to go to Shiratorizawa. All that is baseless fanon bullshit. There’s literally no canon evidence suggesting that Ushijima even thinks about Oikawa outside of volleyball competitions.

I’ll admit that Ushijima did tell Oikawa, “You chose the wrong path.” and that did cross the line. That does not, however, automatically make him a creepy, overbearing, obsessive stalker. People are allowed to interpret fiction differently (as a literature student I’m more than aware of that). But Ushijima’s words were an act of concern, rather than coercion or violence.

What people need to understand is that Ushijima, while a talented player, is terrible at predicting and understanding the effects his words and actions might have on people. He is a blunt, straightforward and honest person who says what is on his mind. The reason he feels that Oikawa should have gone to Shiratorizawa is because he respects Oikawa’s abilities as a player and sees Oikawa’s potential. His way of showing it might be odd, but it is precisely because he respects Oikawa as an opponent that he questions Oikawa’s choice. To Ushijima, being at Shiratorizawa would allow for Oikawa to fulfil more of his potential (of course, the validity of that belief is questionable considering the treatment of Semi Eita, but that is another argument to consider) He honestly just wanted to warn Oikawa not to “make the same mistake” again without realising that he was basically rubbing salt on Oikawa’s wound + being offensive by telling Oikawa that the decision he’s based the past three years of his life around is wrong, because he genuinely wants to see Oikawa fulfil his potential as a player.

Ushijima’s intentions are not malicious. He respects his opponents despite his thoughts on their abilities (or lack thereof), and when he realises that he’s offended someone he’s quick to apologise (i.e. when Hinata questioned Ushijima calling Seijoh “infertile soil”. Ushijima sweated nervously and apologised for causing offence.) Even Oikawa and Iwaizumi, the two characters who dislike Ushijima the most, acknowledge that “he’s genuinely being sincere” when Ushijima wishes them good luck in their final high school tournament.

Ushijima isn’t the type to deliberately rile up his opponents. He doesn’t look down on them either. Up until Hinata’s appearance in his life, he’s competed against no one but himself mentally. And when Ushijima questions Hinata on being an unskilled and short player? He’s not insulting Hinata for that either! His first impression of Hinata gave him high expectations - a challenge he looked forward to facing, and when he realised Hinata’s abilities were much lower than what he expected, he was genuinely curious, because Hinata had spoken so boldly (about beating HIM, a top 3 ace, and going to nationals) before!

Ushijima states that “baseless self-confidence is something I dislike”, so he certainly does not exhibit that himself. He obviously doesn’t expect someone he acknowledges (Hinata, in case I’m not being clear here) to be arrogant, because in his eyes, an opponent he acknowledges and respects should have a “good” attitude just like his. He does not dislike Hinata himself, but is nonetheless infuriated by Hinata’s “arrogance”, because Ushijima works hard. Yes. Here’s the thing. Contrary to popular belief, Ushijima did not get his accomplishments handed to him on a silver platter. He works hard to become a strong volleyball player. Shiratorizawa’s image of him is “The Super Volleyball Maniac”. He wasn’t just naturally good at it. He spent time and effort practising and improving his skills, just like all the other hardworking characters (Oikawa Tooru) you worship.

Remember that Ushijima does not have the luxury of viewing the events of the manga (or anime) from an outsider’s perspective. He does not know of Hinata Shouyou and his struggles. All Ushijima knows about Hinata is that 1) The boy showed him up at Shiratorizawa and proclaimed that Karasuno would defeat Shiratorizawa and go to nationals and 2) Hinata Shouyou does not exhibit the skills necessarily to back up that statement. Ushijima literally has no idea that Hinata had no proper volleyball team or training up until last year, so it’s entirely within his rights to be annoyed that someone with such crappy skills (which Ushijima would attribute to slacking off/not working hard enough) would claim that winning against Shiratorizawa was so easy. He could’ve been nicer about it, but hey, he wasn’t that hostile to Hinata off the court, as you can see with the training camp arc. At the end of the match he acknowledged Hinata’s abilities as a player. Then in the manga, he (and Tendou) was shocked that his coach did not see Hinata as a worthy player to invite to the Miyagi First Year Training Camp, and he encouraged Hinata to keep working hard, “What are you doing standing there?”

Obviously, people are allowed to dislike characters, and Ushijima has done/said things to grate on people’s nerves (as a Seijoh stan and Iwaizumi lover, his “infertile soil” comments do irk me at times). Nonetheless, your personal feelings towards him do not indicate that he is as bad person (especially not a stalker or a rapist, gosh) canonically.

Steve Rogers’ flirting headcanon

You know how Steve is either a blushing virgin - despite his insisting that he isn’t - that bursts into soundless gaping or blushing bright red; or a flirty mc flirt that will always get Tony surprised and all twisted around in unexpected pleasure.

Well I might suggest a little bit of both? Because I kind of see Steve almost as impulsive as Tony might be with his words - it’s just that most times, these impulsive words are really nice and good, and I think people don’t think it wasn’t well thought out. But I’m also thinking, Steve didn’t have a lot of chance to figure that whole flirting shit out until the serum. And he’s still not very good with ladies - which I think is from his 40′s thinking that he should be more careful about what he says to ladies that might prevent him from flexing his flirt muscles fully.

Imagine Steve doing the flirt, pretty expertly even - like it’s something one would imagine that Pre-Hydra Bucky might say - and then while people are reeling from encountering flirty!Steve, he’s just sitting there grinning, cheeks and ears bright red because he did it!! He did the thing!! He’s so proud of his flirting and that he’s good at it, that smug lil apple. Oh he gets flushed, and he also sometimes fumbles in his delivery (hey, he hasn’t had much practice) but when he successfully makes Tony speechless, that’s his best moment of the day. Maybe the week. Basically what I’m saying Steve Rogers is a mouthy dork who’s not used to being liked or appreciated for being a mouthy dork.

On Pewdiepie

The main arguments I’ve seen supporting Felix are “you shouldn’t censor him” and “it’s just a joke”. Just because something is a “joke”, is not an excuse to say terrible things. Especially calling for the genocide of a group of people or saying that someone who was responsible for a genocide did nothing wrong.

I’m tried of goys determining what is or isn’t anti-semitic. What Felix did was the definition of anti-semitism, whether he was serious or not. Some people are going to see his “harmless jokes” and think it’s okay to make them, and then that trend will continue and continue and continue. Jews have been persecuted literally since the religion was founded and it’s still continuing today.

People defending his words are defending anti-semitism. Do I believe Felix is anti-semitic or a Nazi? No. But he does have a huge following and needs to be more responsible with his “jokes”. And all the people defending him also need to be responsible. They can support Felix, but they should not support his comments.

Felix did something terrible. He needs to face the consequences of his actions, just like anyone else.

Chinese Food and Confessions (Lin-Manuel x Reader)

Summary: You’ve been Lin’s friend for years and after a bottle of wine and some pressing questions you learn he’s in love with someone.

Word Count:1,904

Warnings: I’m getting increasingly more cliche so that’s a good one to start with. Drinking. Swearing.

A/N: Did anybody order a lame “you said you were in love and I’m too dense to realize you meant with me so I’ve been moping all week” fic? No? Well here, have this one on the house. Someone feel free to stop me at any time. You’re gonna keep getting these halfhearted ideas until I finish battling this one fic I’m working on. It’s angst. I’m bad at writing angst. I have a blurb I’ll post later to make up for how lame this one turned out though.

“C’mon, you have to tell me something! There has to be something I don’t know about you.” you pushed, swinging your legs up onto Lin’s lap. His hand wrapped around your calf, adjusting your placement. The wine in your glass sloshed around but managed to stay where it was - your couch eternally grateful for that.

“I think you know just about everything about me at this point. This game seems kind of moot.” Lin chuckled at you.

“Just about. But not everything.” you countered and he paused to think of something that might be enough to satisfy your sudden pressing need to know every deep, dark secret he had - which wasn’t many. His hand absentmindedly traced patterns on your leg as the thought.

“Alright, I have something but there’s conditions if I tell you.” Lin posed and you frowned.

After Ann Coulter referred to President Obama as a “retard” in a tweet during Monday night’s presidential debate, Special Olympics athlete and global messenger John Franklin Stephens penned her this open letter:

Dear Ann Coulter, Come on Ms. Coulter, you aren’t dumb and you aren’t shallow. So why are you continually using a word like the R-word as an insult? I’m a 30 year old man with Down syndrome who has struggled with the public’s perception that an intellectual disability means that I am dumb and shallow. I am not either of those things, but I do process information more slowly than the rest of you. In fact it has taken me all day to figure out how to respond to your use of the R-word last night. I thought first of asking whether you meant to describe the President as someone who was bullied as a child by people like you, but rose above it to find a way to succeed in life as many of my fellow Special Olympians have. Then I wondered if you meant to describe him as someone who has to struggle to be thoughtful about everything he says, as everyone else races from one snarkey sound bite to the next. Finally, I wondered if you meant to degrade him as someone who is likely to receive bad health care, live in low grade housing with very little income and still manages to see life as a wonderful gift. Because, Ms. Coulter, that is who we are – and much, much more. After I saw your tweet, I realized you just wanted to belittle the President by linking him to people like me. You assumed that people would understand and accept that being linked to someone like me is an insult and you assumed you could get away with it and still appear on TV. I have to wonder if you considered other hateful words but recoiled from the backlash. Well, Ms. Coulter, you, and society, need to learn that being compared to people like me should be considered a badge of honor. No one overcomes more than we do and still loves life so much. Come join us someday at Special Olympics. See if you can walk away with your heart unchanged.

A friend you haven’t made yet,

John Franklin Stephens

Global Messenger Special Olympics Virginia

we have to address something.
billie says the n-word in “american eulogy” on twenty-first century breakdown. i’d like to say he isn’t saying it hatefully, but he isn’t black, more importantly he’s white as a toilet, and there’s zero excuse for him to say it. we have to acknowledge this. he may have grown, he may have marched with the blm movement in recent years, he may have said his role is to listen to black people and learn from them while he does not try to speak over them, but he has not apologised. maybe he thinks his actions make up for it, but you should keep this in mind when someone tells you “he’s no angel” or “he is problematic” because this is true. be aware of your idols and what they have done.

anonymous asked:

A DEH tree bros fic where after Connor pushes him instead of just like being shook and then going into waving through a window Evan gets up and follows Connor and asks if he's ok because he knows he's not (because mentally ill people def recognize other mental ill people) ... That was a fic request/suggestion thing. You don't have to write it if you don't want to but if you do that's cool too thanks

Part of me wants to make this a multiple part thing. but I don’t know if anyone would want that from me. Anyway, here you go, thanks for requesting!

This turned into a chapter thing, so: [Chapter 2]

[AO3 version]

It’s anger. No, actually, that’s not quite what Evan sees. Yes, there’s anger there, pushing it’s way out in the “you’re the freak” Connor sends at him. Pushing it’s way out through the shove he sends Evan to the ground with. Yet, that’s not it. It isn’t anger that registers to Evan.


It’s only a second. Between the anxiety that creeps into Evan’s lungs and the cold of the ground, he registers pain in the words. Before he can think- and isn’t that how it always is- he’s stumbling to his feet and through the streams of students flooding the halls to follow Connor.

He’s sick too.

There’s this familiarity that he recognizes. Part of him argues, that he could be wrong. That he’s misunderstanding, that he’s just projecting. Hoping for someone to understand. Still, Evan follows.

A bell rings, signaling students to start heading to their classes, but instead of listening to the part of him that says he should turn around and do just that, he catches up to Connor. It’s only once he’s close enough to speak, that his mind catches up with what he’s actually doing and words catch in his throat.

“Are you okay?” Evan is more startled by his own voice than the snap of Connors gaze from a glare at the path ahead of him, to one at Evan’s face. Instinct has Evan curling in on himself.

You are doing god's work here with all this 6p stuff, but you realise words have more than just one meaning, right? Just because some people use "crippling" and its variants as a slur against disabled people, the word has other meanings, such as "causing a severe and almost insuperable problem". For example when a country has crippling debts. Or when someone says their depression cripples them. There is nothing offensive about that, because words have more than just one meaning.

so let me tell you this story about a smartass kid.

this kid’s parents, much like most people’s parents, did not want their kid swearing.

this kid thought he’d figured out a loophole - he could call people an “ass,” because when he was called out on it, he would say he meant “donkey” instead of “butt.”

do you think his parents conceded defeat and let him start swearing?


his parents told him “If you meant ‘donkey,’ you should have said donkey. Don’t use a word that could be interpreted as something offensive when there’s another perfectly good word that means the same thing.”

the end.

Thirty Minutes and a Lemon Curd

This is a one shot that happened when two requests for blurbs turned into not so blurry things by nature and they just fit so well together (x, x). So, they took awhile, but I hope the fact that they blew up into a bigger thing makes up for that! I hope the bigger thing is worth it, too…. x. 

As with the It’s About Balance sequence, all characters are of legal, consenting age and are aware of their decisions and the consequences that stem. I’m always so touchy when age gaps are involved since i know they’re rightly a sensitive thing, and I don’t want anyone misunderstanding what I’m trying to portray.

Harry’s horrified the first time he realizes his mouth is open when he watches you wiping down the counter at the bakery. He’s horrified when he realizes he’s watching the way your arse rounds just a bit more and your legs look longer when you lean over.

He’s horrified more still when he wonders how well they would wrap around him.

At first you were just the girl who came into the bakery while he worked there. Your visit was like clockwork every Saturday, and he saved you the best sweet roll to bag it with whichever pastry you picked out that morning – the sweet roll was constant, the dessert treat a surprise, except if they had made a tray full of lemon curds. On those mornings, he packed you a lemon curd with the sweet roll.

Ok, so since Gaiden is being animated this stupid argument has come up again so I feel the need to explain a few things.

First people are mocking Sakura for not being sure if Sasuke wore glasses or not. First of all, no on really knew Sasuke! To be honest his only real relationships as a child was his family. Yeah he ran into Naruto from time to time, but the two didn’t really start interacting until after the Uchiha massacre. On top of that Sakura and Ino both had crushes on him, but so did all the female population their age. He didn’t interact with any of them, only Sakura after they became a team together. We know Sasuke had bad eyes, and truthfully he probably should have had glasses. Remember when he was going blind? That’s why he took Itachi’s eyes. Sasuke left the village at the age of 12, he didn’t even really start interacting with the others until that age anyway! Then they didn’t really see him again until he was on the opposite side of them around the age of 16. After that he traveled a lot. So yeah, no one really could say for sure ‘Sasuke did/didn’t wear glasses when he was little’ because no one really knew him.

Secondly, we are back to the shitty father argument again.

So Sasuke left the village to originally see the world for himself. Sakura eventually went out to find him. At this point Sasuke had realized that team seven were always there for him, even when he didn’t realize it, and that Sakura truly did love him. He realized he had grown to love her to. When they traveled together they grew closer and eventually got married. They returned to the village to raise Sarada.

Then the issue with the stupid white zetsu’s reappear. Sasuke leaves the village for two reasons, both stated at some point or another! The first is because he is honestly the only person who can actually do this freaking mission. After all the shit they did to get peace Sasuke didn’t wan to see them all thrown into war all over again. If he was the only one who could do this mission to protect his family then he was going to do it.

The second reason was stated in the novels and the anime. It was even implied in the manga. Almost every situation with Sasuke was someone trying to use him to get to his eyes. Orochimaru, Obito, Madara…they all wanted his eyes. That threat of people coming after him for his eyes isn’t going to end now, especially that he has more powerful eyes. Just look at Shin. If he stayed in the village it would endanger the village and his family. It may hurt him to stay away, but it would hurt a hundred times more to loose Sakura or Sarada.

Then there is the argument that he is a horrible father for attacking Sarada in the tower. Do I really have to remind people that he was just ATTACKED by a boy around Sarada’s age wearing the Uchiha crest with the Sharingan eyes? Like really, he is in an isolated place that only Naruto should know about. He was attacked by people with his family crest and an ability that only his family should posses. He even sent word to Naruto and agreed to meet with him because Sasuke DOES NOT understand what is going on there.

All of a sudden a girl around the same age as the boy comes into the tower that NO ONE should know he is in, wearing the crest with the same eyes, looking for HIM! Of course hes’ not going to hesitate to attack! Especially because there was no doubt that Sarada would be back at home, with her mother, blissfully unaware that he was anywhere near the village.

Naruto, Sakura, and the entire village knew Sasukes’ stance on this issue. Sasuke was not going to endanger his family. He couldn’t. So he kept his contact with the village at a minimum. There was no reason for him to believe that Naruto would say ‘hey, Sasuke is in a bad situation right now and is being attacked by people who should not exist right now, you know what this situation could use? His daughter. Let’s drag her into this.’ He never imagined that Naruto would drag children into this.

To be fair Naruto didn’t, but even Naruto didn’t expect the girls to follow him. Now Shikamaru and Naruto each had a chance to eliminate this situation. However both of them knew what it was like to lose their fathers. They wanted Sarada and Sasuke to have that meeting. Naruto even felt guilty about putting Sasuke on the mission in the first place. So when they saw an opportunity to let the two meet, of course they both took it. If Sarada hadn’t followed Naruto, there was no way she would have been out there.

So yeah, the poor guy has been on high alert for years now, doing missions for all five kages if you read the novels. The enemy also seems to know him too, so he wouldn’t be surprised if they knew what his daughter looked like and made one of their own appear to be like her to get Sasuke to lower his guard. Yet Sasuke didn’t hesitate because there was NO REASON for Sarada to be there!

When he realized that it was actually his daughter he was stunned and horrified. She shouldn’t have been there, how dare Naruto drag her into it, why the hell did Naruto let her come, he just terrified her, this was not the way their first meeting should have gone. Those were probably all the thoughts that ran through his head.

So yeah, I don’t understand why Sasuke and Sakura are suddenly horrible parents. Sakura is working by herself to raise a daughter and run a hospital. Of course she’s having a hard time. Sasuke is working on a long mission, protecting the village and most importantly his family. I don’t see why that makes them bad parents!
