#981093 The NEW NaruSaku Debate Thread

Posted by Dalton.T.R on 12 October 2020 - 02:20 AM


I could imagine her bonking him rapidly, and Naruto, bruised up, going "I may have won the battle, but I've lost the war!" Reminded me from the dub of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, when Zenitsu was doing some training and grabbed Aoi only for her to bonk him and for him to say something similar.

Of course...there's always the possibility she'd actually like it.  :hehehe: There are people out there like that, where being tickled is more of a sexual turn on than it is a form of torture.

She really got hated by most of the creators (not Kishi) is because Kishi made Sakura the female lead in part 2. SP along with most of Kishi's assistants did not like that because they invested a lot on money in the post part 1 filler arcs of making Naruto and Hinata interact with one another off the manga. Sakura's role as the female lead was diminished when Kishi fell victim to lies that Sakura was not popular after the Sasori Arc. Sakura was  still the female lead at that time and was pushed to a more supportive role? Why.? Kishi's first editor also claimed that they focus and build on Sasuke's character to bring in more fans. 
Her character was then pushed to the sidelines for business and profits. Not for the plot. As I mentioned before several years ago, the reason why they had Kishi down played Sakura's character was to prevent her from having significant impact on the manga and limit her interactions with Naruto. Her character growth equals to NaruSaku happening and they could not allow.
And it was also said that the heroine change was another business decision for the New Project Era called The Burrito the next generation.

Yeah, sorry, but a studio should not have that kind of power over my story as the author.


I'M the one who came up with these characters. I'M the one who made this world. I'M the one who made a story that YOU got interested in. As far as I'm concerned, the author is the god the studio must answer to.


In no way shape or form should the AUTHOR AND CREATOR of a series have to answer to a studio. As the author, whatever I say goes. Period! If a studio doesn't like that, then tough kitten for them! The author should not have to change their plot for the sake of the studio. You want to make filler? Fine. But you're not changing the canon material of whatever I put down.


As an author and a world builder that kitten pisses me off to no end.

So, here's a question I have in regards to part one of the anime/manga.


After the fight between Naruto and Sasuke, what if Naruto didn't have the healing powers of the Nine-Tailed-Fox and his injuries were much more severe? Imagine if he had to spend weeks - if not months in the hospital recovering from his injuries, even with Tsunade helping him heal. Imagine his injuries and wounds being so severe that even Tsunade was struggling just to keep him alive. What if a limb had been blown off, or his spine was severred or something like that?


At this point, Sakura's "hatred" for Naruto was mostly behind her. She considered him a good friend, and even acknowledged that he knew how she felt all that time. What would her reaction have been seing Naruto in such a critical state this early in the story?

Yeah, because Ino was not a threat to NH.

And to think about it, if Naruto ONLY cared because of his rivalry with Sasuke why didn't Naruto try to win Ino over?

Because I told him to back off. Ino was my girl at the time, then Sai came and buttered her up and stole her from me.


The bastard!

Seems no matter how hard I try, I just can't put Naruto or NaruSaku behind me.Even long after I've considered other works by better artists and writers as much more convincing endings, I just can't seem to move on. I'll go a few months or years without it even entering my mind, then BAM! Out of nowhere I'm fixated on Naruto again! 


Why? Just go away, Naruto, you've overstayed your welcome! Just let me move on to better things and die in the past. 

#974626 So, how did YOU react to the ending?

Posted by Dalton.T.R on 08 September 2019 - 05:55 AM

I never even read the last two chapters, actually. I just saw what everyone he was posting at the time, so I didn't really need to. I don't remember how I actually reacted. I think life was throwing everything it could at me at the time with college, work, starting a new book and so on. I remember I was a little down, but I didn't have the time to really let it get to me.


I'll be honest. The series went down hill in so fast and in so many directions I kind of lost interest. I remember people were saying Naruto was supposed to end after the Pain fight, which made sense, but then the story just kept going on and on and on and on until I finally just lost interest. When the series started drawing closer to its end is when I started paying a little closer attention, but I'd be lying if I said I thought something wasn't right. I never dreamed it would end the way it did, but  had a gut feeling telling me things were going to be bad.

Disney lost me as a fan with all their SJW BS and never should have bought Star Wars from George Lucas.

No one finds what the dude there is doing as creepy? She gave him the “Kitten off” look before, and he got in her space. If anything he’s lucky he only got off with a slight burn. Any dude did that to one of my female friends, I would have said “You need to back off.”, and if I wasn’t there, they would tased him where the sun don’t shine. Plus: CONTEXT! Carol was a Kree soldier at this point in the movie, of course she wouldn’t give a damn about him.
It’s not like any of the other superheroes in film were perfect role models. Like the time Supes stole those clothes in MoS. Or when Tony blasted random objects in his suit in a room full of people while drunk. Or when Steve got Stan Lee fired. Or when Thor wanted to throw down with the Frost Giants because they ruined his coronation. Or Scott having been a thief. Or Tony creating Ultron out of paranoia. Or Wanda and Pietro joining Ultron and also being responsible for the deaths of hundreds when they manipulated Hulk. Or Hulk being Hulk. Or when Batman was branding people so they would be killed in prison. Or when Aquaman told the bartender to charge the man he just rescued for his drink. Or Shazam being a brat for most of the movie and pussies out the first challenge he gets. I could go on.

Really, Captain Marvel is the Sakura of the MCU. People hear the name, and they jump on it, thinking she alone is somehow going to ruin the MCU, saying the movie would flop when it exceeded expectations, claiming she was barely in Endgame because of the reception of the movie when in fact it was because Larson shot in Endgame first BEFORE she started filming her own movie, thinking they’re not doing a sequel when her movie literally came out this year so of course it’s not ready, jumping on Brie for lying about doing her own stunts without realizing SHE WAS JOKING. And somehow the other characters/actors get a pass for their flaws. Kind of like how the bashers find every reason to hate Sakura they can pull out of their hole but ignore the other flaws of the Naruto characters.
And you know who’s more sick of this than me? The other people who genuinely didn’t like Captain Marvel for legitimate reasons, but are not into this culture war kitten, are willing to go about their lives but keep getting lumped in with these incels. Yeah, I liked the movie, but I didn’t think it was GREAT. If CM is honestly the worst movie you have ever seen, then I promise you have never actually seen a bad movie in your life. Try watching Meet the Spartans. Just don’t make a drinking game out of it.


Yeah, I'm sorry, but this is not the first time something like this has happened with a "strong capable woman" character. This is becoming more and more of a trend for female characters and arguably Super Girl was the worst by breaking into a club she wasn't invited to and beating up the bouncers who were trying to get her out. These kinds of movies flop hard and I've seen more and more women are hating them as well. If you want to write a strong female character, this isn't the way to do it. I don't watch a lot of super hero movies because I find them cheesy and the heroes usually have some stupid ridiculous power that makes them all but immortal, but still.

#974145 Mages of the North

Posted by Dalton.T.R on 13 August 2019 - 05:16 PM

Question. What is your process in starting an original story from scratch. I've been wanting to do my own for a while and you've kinda inspired me. c:

Hi! I appreciate that you like the story and would be glad to help.


I can't speak on behalf of other authors and artists when it comes to starting a story from scratch, but I'll go over some of the basic methods I use.


First and foremost, it's not easy. So, don't get discouraged if you keep getting stuck and end up deleting most of what you wrote after re-reading it. The first sentence and the first page are always going to be the hardest, but if you're determined enough, you'll find a way through.


The first thing I do is I find an inspiring source. In the case of Mages of the North, the inspiring source is a number of things. but it's mostly from Naruto since the story is supposed to kind of be my way of correcting some stuff. It pays to have more than once originating source as well and it's perfectly fine if there are a few similarities here and there between the plot and characters. If your story is inspired by another source, it's expected for their to be a few similarities. 


Secondly, take your time. Put as much thought into the story as possible before you actually start writing. Develop your characters as much as you can in your head so they don't become a standard run of the mill good guy or bad guy. You want your characters to have strengths and weaknesses and having the hero start off as a weakling is never a bad idea. Readers or fans love seeing their favorite characters grow and mature as the story progresses, but they despise Mary Sues. Take Rey from Star Wars for example. The perfect example of a character without no weaknesses and requires very little training to do the impossible, which is one reason why the newer Star Wars films have been major failures. 


Depending on the kind of story you're writing, it pays to write out the basic lore for the story as well, especially if it's a fantasy like Mages of the North. As a fantasy, the world you created is yours alone. You make up the rules for said world, which means you're the god for that particular series. In the case of Mages of the North, I've drawn out multiple continents and established the borders of the countries. There's a major war in the story with the Northern and Southern continents but neither side can advance into the other, making it a never ending war. However, that war has little meaning to the main cast until much, much later and is there primarily to create a stronger economy for the soon to be mages.


Writing the lore before starting the story will help you familiarize yourself with your own story before actually writing it. You'll know the bare basics of the area your characters in and will know how to have them proceed. For example, take Floris and Alvis from my story. They live in the South Swamp of Fiorra, which is one of the Northern Continents' most hostile and dangerous places due to the many dangerous wild animals and toxic plant species. Anyone outside the swamp cannot survive there because of the toxic fumes in the air, but Floris and Alvis have called it home their entire lives. It's all they know with the exception of what the trader tells them when he comes into the village. So, they know the swamp extremely well. However, when they leave the swamp, they will face a major culture shock. The world outside the swamp is in a similar time period as the American Revolution, and knowing how they're going to react to seeing the roads, buildings, ships, soldiers, and fortresses is going to be a major change from their primitive mud huts they were used to living in.


Finally, don't write too fast or expect your story to take off right away. It takes time for a story to build momentum and sometimes they never do. In the case of Mages of the North, I try to upload at least once or twice a week so the readers don't lose interest. The chapters are short because of this, but they cover the intended topic without dragging on and on, which brings me to another point. Don't make the chapters a snooze fest by adding in things that just don't belong and don't pull a Kishimoto by writing twenty flashback chapters, then writing one plot advancing chapter, then go back to writing flashbacks. It gets old and very uninteresting quickly. A flashback is okay here and there, but if they're overused, you will lose the interest of your readers. I had to stop reading Naruto for a while because of the Flashbacks.


I hope this helped and good luck to you in the future.

Just letting you guys know I've posted the first few chapters of my Mages of the North series in the writing discussion thread. I hope to at least spark some interest with some of you.

I know I keep advertising this, but my Mages of the North series is pretty much my answer to Naruto's failures and has a few major similarities spread throughout the story. I think that in the long run a lot of you guys might be able to heal that hole in your hearts by reading it.


While my story is inspired by Naruto and has a few similarities here and there, namely the Promise of a Lifetime as a major point, the characters are completely different and have their own goals. It's kind of a funny mix of Naruto meets The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, meets the American Revolution. 


Give the story some time to grow and mature and I honestly think a lot of your guys here will love it. 


If you're curious about it, feel free to PM me and I'll tell you as much as you want to know. Also, as the author of the series, I'm very open to suggestions and ideas so long as they don't stray too far away from the main story.
