If you "Include Sakura-bashing because that c*** deserves it" there's going to be a part of me that will dislike you for all eternity.

Please die in a fire while I blacklist you, your stories, and every community/favorites page that includes either of them.

With love and joy,

Franny with melodica

Dear Naruto fandom,

1. Why are medic-nins always considered to be useless? Yes, I know watching someone kill someone is more entertaining than watching someone heal someone, but there's no logic in what you're saying. The ninja forces need medic-nin because medic-nin save lives. Why else was Zetsu targeting the medics? They're pretty important. Yes, this includes Sakura. Who apparently has been useless throughout this war because she only killed one Zetsu. I guess the fact she healed Gai - who has been, I dunno, fighting fucking Tobi of all people - passed people by. (This post brought to you by a macro on Facebook going "hurr hurr Sakura be useless cos she only killed one Zetsu, as opposed to Hinata / Kiba / Darui / Kitsuchi / Neji who killed loads.")

2. Can we please stop with the 'friendzone' jokes on Mangareader? It's enough having to scroll through all your recolours to get to the actual manga, but I could do without 'hurr hurr Naruto friendzoned Hinata' or 'Sakura friendzoned Naruto'. I'm surprised no-one's [manga spoiler]bashed Rin yet for friendzoning Obito.

Dear Masashi Kishimoto,

Just get on with the flashbacks already. I wants mah rookies.

Learn to Spell

Tis my cry of pain I shout at thee, fandom of Naruto. For thou hast betrayed the very principles of our great language with your blatant disregard for basic human decency.

Let us count, my fellow babies, the number of things wrong with the first f****** chapter of your fic. Actually, scratch that.
Why don't we just make a list?!

Because that would take too long,

P.S. Dear Naruto fandom. I have a challenge for you. Write a fic, where Naruto stays in his own Juubi-damned village and is actually happy/content/not an emo. I'm not saying he can't leave on missions or something, but this was old and stale in 2007. But 19/25 fics on one page should not be about him leaving, or even worse getting his Kurama holding self kicked out of the village because of yeah.

Not really a rant but a burning question

Sooooo I've read a couple of fanfics owing to a sudden relapse and I've come across this a couple of times--and as someone who doesn't follow the manga and can't follow the anime owing to a JOB OF EPIC PROPORTION, I thought I should turn to you guys for help. So.

Is Naruto giving Sasuke a sunrise as a birthday gift in the past canon or fanon? I'm just really curious.

Raging Speedhorn

Ugh. Shut up.

Yeah, sorry, I know there have been a lot of Sakura Haruno posts lately, but I kind of need to vent.

I accidentally came across this lovely little stamp by some guy who really doesn't like Sakura - judging how many anti-Sakura groups he's in - and my curiosity got the better of me, so I had a look at the comments. And I found this little gem.

Man It's so funny and entertaining reading these suckura fans get so worked up over this stamp xDDD But they just need to face the facts and that suckura is NOT a Heroine just the Naruto whore. Seriously fan-girls pair up suckura with everyone and make up the WEIRDEST couples such as Deisucku, Kisasucku, Itasucku, every guy in the Akatsuki even Konan!!!! WTF people?!?!?!?
Common even DeiIno is more possible than Deisucku

So let me get this straight. A character who hasn't so much as snogged anyone on screen, let alone had sex, is a whore because fans ship her with different characters. Because of fanon, not canon. I've seen this accusation thrown at plenty of female characters (including Hinata, which is beyond laughable), but oddly enough, I've never seen male characters called whores. Naruto, Itachi, Sasuke, Shikamaru and Kakashi are paired up with loads of different characters, does that make them whores? Oops, sorry, I forgot. Man sleeping around = good. Girl sleeping around = BAD BAD BAD. It's even sadder when you see girls making such stupid comments. 

Also, it depresses me how many comments on the anti-Sakura stuff there are from Hinata fans who think she should be the lead character. Look, I like Hinata, but she's not the main female character, Sakura is. Deal with it. I prefer Shikamaru to Naruto, but I can accept that he will always be a side character.)

Frightening Totoro

Is anyone still reading the manga?

I'm getting the impression the current arc is driving people off in droves. I admit I'm not too pleased myself with how things are turning out, and it's a bit too reminiscent of the war in Bleach, but apparently Naruto fandom on Livejournal is dying out and a big cause of it is the current arc. There's an interesting discussion about it over on fail_fandomanon. Someone posted a comment which pretty much sums up how I feel about it:

And for the Sasuke fans on here - how do you feel about his characterisation as of late? I'm not a Sasuke fan myself, but I'm getting the distinct impression his descent into batshittery hasn't gone done well with his fandom. I'll say this now, if he starts offing rookies and their families, and then gets his inevitable redemption and Naruto Talk no Jutsu's everyone into forgiving Sasuke because he's Naruto's friend and he know not what he do, I will RAGE.

Also, Naruto is turning into Sailor Moon.
