"Unless you can look me in the eye and tell me that I don’t deserve you or that you are incapable of loving me, I’m not going anywhere. I don’t care about the burdens that your past might bring in the future, or the bad habits I see you effortlessly trying to break. As long as we’re both alive and on this earth, I can’t imagine us not being together. I’ve bled myself dry of spilling reasons for you to stay, so please don’t tell me that this isn’t enough. I chose you long, long ago, knowing what I was getting myself into. And I’m convinced that I would’ve chosen you lifetimes before." (x)
Sakura: “I… I realize that I can’t do anything, I really do. Even though I love you…!!* Even though I care so much about you…!! I couldn’t get close to you, nor could I go down with you**… and now it’s like that again, the only thing I can do is plead*** and cry… how disgraceful, really…!”
Sakura: “But… but Sasuke-kun! If I have a place in a corner of your heart, no matter how small… no matter how small… then please, don’t go far away anymore…! If we stay together forever… one day… just like in the past…”
Sasuke: “You really are annoying.”
* Sakura uses ‘daisuki’.
** I’m not completely sure about this sentence, but I think the first part means something like ‘to get close to, to reach’. The second part literally reads ‘I couldn’t do ‘sashichigaeru’… which means ‘to stab each other and go down together’. So - unless this expression also has a metaphorical connotation that I’m unaware of (perfectly possible) - I guess that Sakura’s intention in Iron Country was to kill Sasuke and be killed by him at the same time, thus dying together with him.
*** LIterally ‘to be unreasonable, to fret, to throw a tantrum’.
Kakashi: “Sakura… Sakura has always wanted to save you. Always…”
Sasuke: “Was she having fun in her make-believe game of love? There is no reason for me to like her or to be liked by her.”
Kakashi: “The only time you need a reason is when you hate someone! Besides, right now Sakura’s wish isn’t to make you hers*… she only wants to save you! This girl still sheds tears while caring about you, even after you tried to kill her… and the reason is that she loves** you so much it’s breaking her heart!”
Sasuke: “Those…………… are probably just chains…… from a failed past……”
* Literally ‘Now Sakura doesn’t want to make you her thing’, implying that her love is focused on his well-being, not on her wanting him as a boyfriend.
** Kakashi uses ‘ai suru’, the strongest term for love.
Hagoromo: “I’ll try leaving it up to Naruto… and I hope that this time, hatred will be able to turn to love. Or rather, what I should say is probably… that I hope that love can be regained. Because not only Naruto, but Sasuke too is different from Kaguya… they’re both people who know something of love.”
I have died every day waiting for you, darling don’t be afraid I have loved you for a thousand years. I’ll love you for a thousand more.
Time stands still, beauty in all she is. I will be brave, I will not let anything take away what’s standing in front of me. Every breath, Every hour has come to this.
One step closer…
heck ya for cheesy song lyrics and these two baes.
"A smile is the best way to get out of trouble, even if its fake.
Amazingly, it fools everyone."
If our love is tragedy why are you my remedy?
If our love’s insanity why are you my clarity?
you can learn to love again
