Anonymous said: how would tenten handle a situation in which neji is trying to stop (forbid it) hinata from going on a date with naruto or ruining their date
Typically, Tenten did not involve herself in Neji’s family matters. She respected his privacy and only offered her advice/opinions when he requested them. She may be his (best)friend and training partner but she had no right to intrude upon a topic so sensitive.
There were exceptions of course, and Tenten believed this was one of them.
Hinata had been so desperate as to enlist her help. Hinata, a 23 year old woman, had practically begged her.
Only Hyūga Neji would be terrifying enough to make the Uzumaki Naruto, the 7th Hokage of Konoha and the strongest ninja in the Five Lands be scared to ask out Hyūga Hinata, potential leader of the Hyūga Clan and a jōnin.
"Neji. Naruto will not even be able to walk up to the door; the intensity of your gaze could be felt from the gates of Konoha." Tenten remarked observantly.
"Good." Neji ground out between his clenched teeth. "The farther he stays away from Hinata-sama the better."
Tenten glanced over at the door where said Hinata was to arrive at any time and rolled her eyes. “Neji. They are adults and she has a right to go on a date with anyone she wants to. You’re being ridiculous.”
"Ridiculous?" Neji questioned incredulously.
“Yes ridiculous.” Tenten cut him of before he could spew forth reasons why his actions were valid (in his own mind). “And you’re being patronizing. I understand that you care for Hinata, we all do, but you can’t control her.”
Neji glared at Tenten, but the brunette was long used to it and barely even flinched. She met his gaze steadily. “You know I’m right Neji. Back down.”
Something in her voice must have clicked with Neji and he relented. The tenseness in his muscles released slightly and he cast his gaze away first.
Sensing her advantage, Tenten pressed on. “He makes her happy Neji. Isn’t that all you want for her?”
Neji reluctantly nodded his head in agreement, “It’s just that Hokage-sama is-“
"Kind? Cheerful? Powerful? In love with Hinata?" Tenten suggested. She paused as she felt a new chakra enter the compound. "He’s here."
With perfect timing, Hinata appeared in the doorway, dressed adorably and a flushed face. “Hello Neji-san, Hi Tenten-san.” Hinata eye’s flickered over to the older woman in a silent question. Tenten nodded and a hopeful smile gleamed on Hinata’s face.
"I will just be going now." Hinata spoke quickly, and made her way past the two silent, conflicting teammates, hoping to pass without issue.
Neji appeared as though he was going to say something, but after a sharp look from Tenten, he just pressed his lips together tightly with a sour expression as Hinata practically fled to her awaiting date.
"Thank you Neji." Tenten placed a hand on Neji’s arm. She understood the gravity of his silence.
Neji scowled, “I still don’t approve.”
"Look at it this way." Tenten sighed, "What if - just hypothetically speaking - I was to date you and a relative disapproved?"
Neji’s eyebrows drew together, “Why would they disapprove?” He didn’t seem to be bothered by their hypothetical relationship.
"Because I’m a mere commoner? Because I don’t even have a last name? Because I’m weak?” The words were spoken with a tinge of bitterness, and hinted that these sentences were not mere hypothetical words spoken.
"That-that is-" Neji paused as he took a moment to collect himself, "You are not some mere commoner and you are certainly not weak. You are a jōnin for a reason."
"What if they said I wasn’t smart enough? Not pretty enough? Not feminine enough?" Tenten continued as though she had not been interrupted.
Neji’s hands clenched at his sides, “Tenten, what is your point?” He asked tightly, and it wasn’t a far stretch to imagine he was angry (not at her, of course, but at the fictional relative that would dare to say that about her)>
"You would defend me." Tenten continued, "And I would hope you would continue to date me."
"Of course." Neji replied swiftly.
Tenten nodded her head, “So why would Hinata do anything differently?She doesn’t want to upset you Neji, but she loves Naruto, and you are making her choose. And from your completely hypothetical example, we know who she will choose.”
"And," Neji added quietly, "we know who I will choose."

How To Draw Better In 2 Minutes
I expected this to be a troll video about sacrificing your soul in exchange for art skills or something but this was actually very informative.
as-howarth said: Hey John, what is your reaction to the news that the Riverside district has chosen to ban TFIOS from middle school libraries on the grounds that it deals with mortality and sex? I remember your reactions to similar situations concerning your books have been pretty animated and wondered what you thought?
I guess I am both happy and sad.
I am happy because apparently young people in Riverside, California will never witness or experience mortality since they won’t be reading my book, which is great for them.
But I am also sad because I was really hoping I would be able to introduce the idea that human beings die to the children of Riverside, California and thereby crush their dreams of immortality.
Imagine a world where people only die if they know about death.
(How quickly) would everyone become immortal? What do you think will happen? Will there come a point wherein everyone hides the the concept of death from a generation and the concept will die out? Can you even do that? You can’t teach any form of history, or even family trees, because every previous generation has died (what about pets and other animals? is it only human mortality that counts?). Infant mortality would drop to zero though.
If people only can die if they know death exist, would anything change at all?
And so a novel was born.
I really wish people would stop being all ‘why did he put her in that genjutsu and not something nicer’.
It’s pretty obvious to me, at least. He felt as though it was necessary.
Sasuke wants Sakura to hate him.
His foot shook when faced with her begging him to stay if she mattered to him even a little. Her love makes his resolve shake each and every time, and he knows it will continue to do so.
Her love is his weakness.
