The characters and the entire franchise were sacrificed, and to do what? Make these people feel better about their miserable lives?
It's not like it could possibly make them that happy. At the end of the day Hinata doesn't exist, and even if she did, she loves Naruto, not them. So they don't really get that much out of it. I would have gotten more out of it, because I don't want Sakura to be with me, I want her to be with Naruto. Which is actually possible.
It's just pathetic.
They could've still had their pathetic fantasies had NaruSaku became canon. Kishimoto created her, those images are still there, and they were free to think up whatever they wanted.
I'd share my crazy imagination where anime girls are concerned, but there's no way to do that without coming off like a complete creep. I'll just say when I do go to that place, who those characters are in canon, what they would like or not like isn't a factor. I'm just imagining it would feel good to...well, you know.
Basically what I'm saying is Wet Dreams should STAY IN YOUR HEAD.
