on loving a fighter
Japanese artist Azuma Makoto recently ventured to Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to launch a 50-year-old pine bonsai and a colorful floral arrangement into space. The mission, titled Exobotanica, aimed to explore the transformation of the plants into exobiota (extraterrestrial life) in outer space.
Shoulda woulda coulda anon.
Karin was introduced in part 2 around chapter 347 while ss has been developed throughout part one with sakura still pining for him in part two. Her love was even more pronounced and apparent. Do you really think kishi would make sk canon at the expense of ss, which has been here since part one? What about sakura’s feelings constantly being highlighted? What about sakura loving him unconditionally, being one of his special, dear ones and filling his lonely existence?
Did you ever think that sakura being normal was positive for sasuke? She never understood his pain and she probably would never properly understand it either. However that doesn’t mean that she can’t give him love or bond with him. Maybe the normalcy, joy and love she brings is good for sasuke.
Ppl hate when I say this but I don’t care. Karin was never important. You have sakura, the main female who loved this guy since part one and you have hinata, designed with naruto in mind, who loved him when no one else did and who got panel time and a proper introduction since part one. Part one is the foundation and you haven’t noticed, everything is back to being about our part one favourites again (team 7 atm).
My point is, even if Karin was shown to be sad about he village, unless it was fleshed out like sasuke’ s pain and constantly developed then it would not be acceptable for sk to be canon. This is a kids’ shounen manga, so don’t expect unimportant side characters from midway in the second half to experience something a main character has been yearning for, working towards and developed around since the beginning.
Karin understanding his pain also doesn’t mean that she could cure it. We do not know what exactly he needs but we can assume that he needs love, attention and normalcy. Sasuke doesn’t seem to need to take care of someone else and their pain in a relationship, he is really the one who needs the emotional support. Thus I believe at most Karin could have been a friend to talk to him.
No one can understand him fully so get this idea that you have to know everything about sasuke in order to be in a successful romantic relationship with him, out of your mind.
I’ve been looking for an excuse to draw Queen Margaery forever, so yay you guys! \o/ Uhm, I hope you don’t mind I put your requests together? I wasn’t planning to, but then I had to do this twice over cos it’s a new face for me… Anyway, I hope you guys like it.
