Naruto Fan Rants
There are other pairings you can write, you know, besides SasuNaru
Naruto would be on top anyways :D, NejiTen, SasuSaku, NaruHina, and ShikaIno. Really. And you don't have to stick them all in the same fic either. Seriously. Why is it that almost every time I see something with one of these pairings in it, it also has at least one of the other above pairings? Also, it is not neccesary to pair everyone off, it really isn't, and if you can't find someone to pair Gaara up with, then leave him alone, and quit pairing him up with your OC.
Sakura is not the only girl in the series. Also, she's not a slut, and I find it just a tad odd that every time I wander over to ff.net I see a billion fics with at least three different Sakura pairings in them. If I saw a few, I wouldn't mind it so much, to each their own
and I would kill to see a few slut!Gaara fics... but really. And these always have the same pairings too. SasuSaku, NejiSaku, GaaSaku, KakaSaku, ItaSaku, and sometimes NaruSaku. What about all the other guys, huh? What about Lee, and Shikamaru, and Chouji, and Shino? Where is the Sakura love for them?
And another thing: SasuSaku is not canon. Yes, Sakura has a crush on Sasuke, and they're on the same team, and Sasuke cares for her and her wellbeing. This is not neccesarily because he loves her romantically. I have a friend who once insisted they were canon because when Sasuke ran off and Sakura wanted to go with him he said she couldn't because he didn't want her to get hurt. Or something like that. I haven't read all of that part, so I don't know the details, but that's what she said. And it bugged me. It bugged me lots. I mean, it could become canon, but so could a lot of things. Naruto likes Sakura, but there's not much NaruSaku compared to all the SasuSaku, and Ino has a crush on Sasuke too, but we don't see much SasuIno, do we now?
Write something different, please? I beg of you.
(Just ehm, general 'you' used here. This is a result of me always finding the same thing all the time. There are so many characters in the series, so much oppurtunity, so much fun with crack pairings and pairings that aren't crack but you don't see anyways. Use them! Use them I say! Variety is the spice of life!)
