[whichever one works for you]
Oh My God. Okay, so I sound like a valley girl. I have every right. After my EXTREMELY long absence on Shannaro, which has resulted in many members not knowing me, and maybe the exclusion from my old partners in shinobi crime, I apologize. But without further ado, I present to you the third and final part of Naruto Shipping. I dedicate it to Sothe and lady hinata who have been patiently waiting for this.
Here is the first installment for those who missed it. And here is the second blog.
And to hide the horrible writing, I give you pretty pictures, not of my making. So just stare at the pictures. Also, if you wonder why the pictures don’t really show a relationship between the twothat’s mostly because if I DID put a picture showing the yaoi, it would be rated R. And I don’t want to be arrested for putting pron online >>
If you have a pairing that you know of and would like to be included, please feel free to tell me, so I can add it to the list. And please no crazy flaming. I’m very opinionated, and my blog just really talks about my opinion on the pairings, some general public opinion and whether or not it’s possible with reasons and evidence to support it.
So enjoy? This, I guess, is mostly for those Yaoi fangirls.
[I've noticed that some people on deviantART and on FanFiction tend to like what I've dubbed €˜Pedophilic Pairings'. For those who don't know, that means that an older man or woman is in a relationship with a MUCH younger person.]
Itachi and Sakura-
Uchiha Itachi is indeed, 20 years old in Shippuuden and Sakura is 15. Five year difference. Not so bad. Now rewind. He was an Akatsuki member and she’s a chunnin. Scary difference in power. But I’ve done my research and many ItaSaku fans believe that this pair is potentially canon. However, in reality, it’s only canon if Number 1. Itachi was still alive, Number 2. If the story would have continued like this till Sakura was 18 or older, thus making her legal…
Eh, you could also say this would be the most insane love triangle if you add Sasuke in the mix. The former lover dumping the younger brother for the older and much cooler brother. I think we’ve all heard similar scenarios. Nonetheless, I’ll admit, it is a slightly sexy pairing, albeit he is five years older and that he’s dead. But who doesn’t want a guy who is a formidable shinobi prodigy, has the infamous Uchiha good looks and loves his little brother?

Kakashi and Sakura-
Another one of those illegal student-teacher but smexy pairings. Those never get old. However, Kakashi is 29…meaning the age difference is 14 years. I’m going to pause here and let that sink in.
Kakashi has been her mentor and note that Sakura is the only one of his students that wasn’t particularly psychologically screwed up and she was the only one who stayed in Konoha. They have a relationship where both respect the other. But nothing shows any romantic interest. Plus Naruto and Tsunade might kill Kakashi if it ever happened. This pairing could work if Number 1. Kakashi decided to do something illegal and Number 2. If anything canon appeared in the manga/anime about these two.

Deidara and Sakura-
How this couple emerged, I don’t know. Deidara is in Akatsuki and Sakura has never had a face to face confrontation with him. The only time, in my recollection, inwhich they ever did meet was when Kakashi, Naruto, her and Chiyo infiltrated the Akatsuki cave and saw Sasori and Deidara [who was sitting on Gaara's cold and poor lifeless body]. And if anything, Sakura should be against liking him. He killed Gaara [though Chiyo brought him back], he tried to capture her beloved Naruto and he nearly killed her beloved Sasuke. I’m not exactly sure, but I think Sakura would want to kill him…if he wasn’t already dead.
My guess is that people like the idea of pretty boy Deidara with Sakura. They could do a remake of Aladdin, except with Deidara in Akatsuki clothes instead of Arabian street clothes, Sakura in her shinobi outfit instead of a light blue silky thingy, and a clay bird instead of a magic carpet. Sasori can be the monkey.

Genma and Sakura-
If DeiSaku was completely out of the blue, this pairing leaves me at a loss of words, mostly due to the obvious reason that it’s not possible. Did Sakura ever speak to Genma in the Naruto series? The only time she ever saw him was when she was still a genin and was watching the Chunnin exams. I’ll admit, that Genma has an air of sexiness to him, especially with him chewing on the senbon on all, but please, make pairings within Narutard reason.

Genma and Ino-
The same that went for GenmaSaku goes for here as well. Ino never talked to Genma, at least not that we know of. And their relationship has no significance if Kishimoto has never shown the two together. Again, like Sakura, Ino only saw him during the Chunnin Exams. And who knows, they might have seen each other in the streets of Konoha, but why would that instill a deep and meaningful relationship between a child and a possible pedophile?

Kakashi and Sasuke-
[I wasn't sure whether to put this in Yaoi or in Pedophilia, but pedophilia has fewer choices, so I put it here to fill some space.] So here we have another student and teacher relationship, just with the same gender. Kakashi was Sasuke’s mentor and like him in some ways. He taught Sasuke to channel his lightning chakra. They both have Sharingan, and in a way, Sasuke was one of his smartest students [before he tried to go on the €˜I'm such a rebel' route].
I don’t see how this is a plausible pairing anymore because in my opinion- Kakashi doesn’t like Sasuke all that much now. And considering Kakashi does see Sasuke as a failure of student, it’s unfortunate we never got to see Kakashi’s reaction to seeing Sasuke again after the timeskip. I was hoping for a “Kakashi beats the crap out of Sasuke” scene.

Izumo and Kotetsu-
Unless you have no idea, these two are the Chunnin that are always on guard duty at the main gate of Konoha. They also were involved in the Chunnin exams. They did a Transformation Jutsu and tricked all the little noobs that were trying to be Chunnin. And then Sasuke, in other words, said, “I’m not a mutherfuggin dumb***”. They were also watching the Chunnin Exams. TenTen happened to be sitting near them and overheard them speculating over Naruto and her beloved Neji.
Well, I can hardly rule this out as an impossible pairing. I mean, they are together ALL the time. They’re obviously very good friends or something a little more? Who knows what happens between them when we’re not looking? ;]

Kakashi and Genma-
Again, an interesting pair. Kakashi and Genma are roommates. So they’re most likely pretty close or know each other considerably well. But, the only times we ever saw them together was when Kakashi was recovering from Itachi’s Mangekyo Sharingan and when they were fighting during the Chunnin Exams during the Sound nin ambush. They seem like good guy friends, but to the rabid yaoi fangirl, the term “man-friend” might equal “secret lover”.

Sakura and Ino-
Odd couple. But for the yuri obsessed fan, believable. They are best friends, but this couple, sadly to say to you yuri fans, is most highly improbable. Both Sakura and Ino are straight.
Sakura’s crushes: 1. Sasuke
Ino’s crushes: 1. Sasuke 2. Sai 3. Every other hot guy in Naruverse
Not to mention their relationship is that of good girl best friends. Complete with nicknames and hair ribbons and cat fights and rivalry and…you know, the basic girl stuff.

Sakura and Hinata-
This would be a depressing couple if it ever happened. Why you ask? Primarily because Hinata likes Naruto who likes Sakura. Sad, yes. Very sad. And so very unlikely. Again, like SakuIno, both participants in this pairing are very straight. Not to mention these two kunoichis are in the top two shippings in Naruverse- SasuSaku and NaruHina. These two are discussed in the very first Naruto Shipping Blog, if you missed it.

Ino and Hinata-
Odd pair. Not much interaction has ever happened between the two. Yes, they’re both kunoichis in the Konoha 12. And yes, they’re both very pretty. But Ino has only ever really involved herself with Sakura’s affairs. They didn’t know Hinata well as a child since she was sheltered by her father and the Hyuuga family. And again, I must bring out the point that both are straight. Hinata is all eyes on Naruto and Ino is all eyes on anything male that walks on two legs.
Art by Gabzillaz.
Neji and Naruto-
Interesting idea, NejiNaru. Yes, Naruto did inspire the hell out [and beat the hell out] of Neji during the Chunnin Exams, completely changed his view about his depressing life and all that fate-crap. Naruto was his inspiration in beating Kidomaru, the freaky spider guy, even when Neji was severely wounded. Neji has high standards on Naruto, and would most likely use Gentle Fist on anyone who said Naruto was a loser.
But unfortunately to you yaoi shippers, this pair is unlikely. Naruto has his eyes set on Sakura, and Neji seems to have a thing or two for TenTen.

Naruto and Gaara-
Yet as sweet and adorable as this pair might be, it can be both believable yet not plausible.
1. Naruto and Gaara are very similar.
2. Both are Jinchuuriki.
3. Both suffered horrible childhoods and thus understand each other on a very strong basis.
4. Both have a dream of becoming Hokage [though Gaara already fufilled his.]
5. Both care for each other considerably as friends.
1. Naruto is straight. He likes Sakura.
2. Gaara might as well be straight. There’s Matsuri to consider.
3. Hinata might be forced to kill Gaara.
4. Temari and Kankuro might murder Naruto.
5. Though it would be an excellent way to unite Konoha and Suna, I think both countries would rebel in shooting flames if this happened.
There, I laid out the facts for you. You decide.

Naruto and Kiba-
Between these two, it’s mostly been manly interaction. Head to head rivalry in canine dominance. Well, one is a dog-like person and the other has a fox in him. Figures.
Kiba had no respect for Naruto until the preliminaries for the Chunnin Exams and Naruto [through Kami-sama's loving and gentle care] lucked out and wiped Kiba on the floor. And he supported Naruto during the Chunnin Exams. He also was put on the same team with Naruto for the SECOND Sasuke retrieval, but nothing appeared that might hint at yaoiness.
Really, I think Kiba is afraid Naruto will fart again near him.

Kiba and Shino-
These two are on the same team and have gone through most everything together. They work considerably well, except Kiba thinks Shino is a bit conceited. Honestly, I doubt this could work. If Shino took Kiba away from Akamaru, Akamaru would eat Shino alive..bugs and all.

Uchihacest [Itachi and Sasuke]-
This must be the ultimate manifesto of sibling affection gone wrong. Horribly wrong.
On a side note, E.R.Nefarious wrote a rant about this specific pairing, and also about Hyuugacest as well. Here it is. And I agree with her in every aspect.
I can’t possibly see how this could work. Forget how it could work. It’s just wrong. Yes, Sasuke loved his older brother Itachi and due to recent information, we now know that Itachi loved his little bro as well. However, Number One, this whole Uchihacest thing would never have worked when they were younger because they had parents back then. I think Mikoto would have noticed SOMETHING if anything happened. Number Two, Sasuke hated Itachi the rest of his life. Why would he be inclined to like him when Itachi had killed their parents and scarred him for life? Number Three, when Sasuke did finally find out the truth behind EVERYTHING, it was too late for any such relationship- Itachi was dead.
And why do people have to go and make something like this? Why can’t we have a nice healthy familial relationship between brothers, eh? Why do they have to add all the incest and what not?
Well..thank god they couldn’t have had kids or they’d be albino, according to the laws of genetics. Then again, it’s impossible for a guy to be preggers…Let’s keep it at “Thank Heavens nothing of the like happened between them.”

Naruto and Sasuke-
I’m assuming this is the one pairing ALL of the yaoi fangirls love. I really have no clue what to say about this couple however. Naruto and Sasuke are really just friends, in my belief. Naruto likes Sakura, and he’s only obsessed with Sasuke because Sasuke is his best friend.
BUT one could argue that Sasuke might have definitely changed his gender preference. He did, after all, spend 2 and a half years with Orochimama, I mean Orochimaru, who has a tendency to collect little boys. That and Sasuke has never admitted feelings for girls. Sure he protected Sakura and avenged her, but he did leave her. And he never did anything with the advances of all the girls in Konoha, nor does anything with Karin.
I don’t know about you all, but I was hoping for SasuSaku, but ever since Sasuke joined Akatsuki [instead of redeeming his brother's name] and turned into a little emo duck butt, I’ve lost any respect that I had for him, and he can go wallow with Karin.

Iruka and Naruto-
Again, like KakaSasu, I didn’t know whether to put this into Pedo or Yaoi.
This is not a pairing I’m particularly fond of. I don’t like the idea of screwing around with the very first kind relationship Naruto ever had. Iruka has always been a father-like figure to him. Despite the fact that Naruto’s Kyuubi killed Iruka’s parents, Iruka came to care for Naruto. He understood what he went through, such as being a trouble maker in order to get the attention that he would otherwise never get. Iruka has always been there for Naruto, scolding him in Ninja Academy, buying tons of ramen for him, letting him wear his hitae-tae, and comforting him when Jiraiya died. This [heart-warming] relationship, just like Itachi and Sasuke, shouldn’t be toyed with in this manner. :[

I’m just extremely happy that I’ve finally finished this damn trilogy blog.
I’m sorry if I made any of the boys sick. I have a couple new blog ideas that might interest you, but they might take a long while to come out.
And I’m a huge fan of creating avatars, so if any one has requests that are not in the Avatar page, email me and I’ll be happy to make it.
