DO YOU SEE THIS?!? STILES GOT ONE OF HIS HANDS FREE BECAUSE HE WAS SO ANGRY.
THAT’S TRUE LOVE, BITCHES.
You have no idea how happy this made me feel.
For years, a lot of fans can’t see how awesome she is. She’s been hated for so long for being weak and useless (according to them)
But we all have to freaking step back and look. Sakura is the most fucking human among them. Almost all of the characters have clans and people who they get their abilities and skills from. Sakura? She got most of what she had from training. Yes, everyone trained, but she didn’t have anything special about her other than her control on chakra.
Naruto has the Nine tails and that borrowed strength when in Sage mode from Jiraiya and the toads.
Sasuke has his bloodline Sharingan, eyes from Itachi and such.
Kakashi has that sharingan from Obito.
Other teams like Hinata, Neji has the Byakugan to polish
Ino has her mind switching technique
Shikamaru has his brain and Shadow manipulation
Not all of them, but a lot of them has these kind of abilities, while Sakura has none. She trains hard to at least match her team mates.
And this? THIS FREAKING CHAPTER SHOWS IT.
She punched Kaguya. PUNCH! A freaking human ability. No Sharingan, Kyuubi chakra or anything. A freaking punch that she uses in all of her battles.
Oh wait look, Kaguya has her Byakugan activated. And Sakura punched her on the 1 DEGREE that she can’t see. EXACTLY ON THAT 1 DEGREE.
If that isn’t awesomeness. Then I question your sanity.
If you can’t like her, at least RECOGNIZE THAT SHE IS NOT WEAK.
Thank you Kishimoto~ for bring Sakura to us, for making her this awesome.
It’s finally come and we freaking deserve to scream. This is our girl guys, the girl who used to be weak, who had to rely on her teammates to protect her, who is seriously hated by a large population of the naruto fandom who failed to see her growth.
This is Sakura Haruno and I’m proud to have supported her all these years.
Thank you Kishimoto for proving that Sakura has a place on the new team 7.Thank you for giving Sakura Haruno the character development she deserved. Thank you for not sidelining her after she got said development. Thank you for not making her and Kakashi irrelevant while Naruto and Sasugay fought Kaguya. Just…just..Thank you
a reminder that:
- naruto got his power largely from a demon fox within him and from various deceased characters who passed power onto him
- sasuke got his power largely from an elite bloodline and from various deceased characters who passed power onto him
- kakashi got his newly found power from…
After overcoming many struggles, their power becomes one!

Friendly Reminder that at the end of The Battle of the Labyrinth, Percy Jackson spent his 15th birthday with Nico DiAngelo (◕‿◕✿)
A reminder that Percy celebrated it with his complete immediate family. His mom, Paul, Tyson and his Dad. It’s like a ‘Meet the family’ on Nico’s part.
Meeting your crush’s whole family. :)
Children should remain silent, and they are ‘good’ when they’re quiet, but ‘bad’ when they are not, because they are disturbing the adults and causing trouble. This attitude runs through the way people interact with children on every level, and yet, they seem surprised when it turns out that children have been struggling with serious medical problems, or they’ve been assaulted or abused.
The most common response is ‘well why didn’t the child say something?’ or ‘why didn’t the child talk to an adult?’ Adults constantly assure themselves that children know to go to a grownup when they are in trouble, and they even repeat that sentiment to children; you can always come to us, adults tell children, when you need help. Find a trusted adult, a teacher or a doctor or a police officer or a firefighter, and tell that adult what’s going on, and you’ll be helped, and everything will be all right.
The thing is that children do that, and the adults don’t listen. Every time a child tells an adult about something and nothing happens, that child learns that adults are liars, and that they don’t provide the promised help. Children hold up their end of the deal by reporting, sometimes at great personal risk, and they get no concrete action in return. Sometimes, the very adult people tell a child to ‘trust’ is the least reliable person; the teacher is friends with the priest who is molesting a student, the firefighter plays pool with the father who is beating a child, they don’t want to cause a scene.
Or children are accused of lying for attention because they accused the wrong person. They’re told they must be mistaken about what happened, unclear on the specifics, because there’s no way what they’re saying could be true, so and so isn’t that kind of person. A mother would never do that. He’s a respected member of the community! In their haste to close their ears to the child’s voice, adults make sure the child’s experience is utterly denied and debunked. Couldn’t be, can’t be, won’t be. The child knows not to say such things in the future, because no one is listening, because people will actively tell the child to be quiet.
Children are also told that they aren’t experiencing what they’re actually experiencing, or they’re being fussy about nothing. A child reports a pain in her leg after gym class, and she’s told to quit whining. Four months later, everyone is shocked when her metastatic bone cancer becomes unavoidably apparent. Had someone listened to her in the first place when she reported the original bone pain and said it felt different that usual, she would have been evaluated sooner. A child tells a teacher he has trouble seeing the blackboard, and the teacher dismisses it, so the child is never referred for glasses; the child struggles with math until high school, when someone finally acknowledges there’s a problem.
This attitude, that children shouldn’t be believed, puts the burden of proof on children, rather than assuming that there might be something to their statements. Some people seem to think that actually listening to children would result in a generation of hopelessly spoiled brats who know they can say anything for attention, but would that actually be the case? That assumption is rooted in the idea that children are not trustworthy, and cannot be respected. I’m having trouble understanding why adults should be viewed as inherently trustworthy and respectable, especially in light of the way we treat children.
