I had this idea that I would like to propose as a challenge since there are so many amazing and talented writers here. If someone already proposed it, or if there is a fic like this already, I have not seen it. Still, it would be interesting to see different takes on this change in the timeline:
What would happen if Sakura was quicker in raising her hand during the written portion of the chuunin exams? Or, if Naruto was a bit slower in giving his speech? What if they failed the chuunin exams because Sakura ended up raising her hand in the end?
It would be interesting to see the inner turmoil with team seven if this were to happen, or the possible resentment her teammates may have towards Sakura for doing this, along with if there was a rift between them because of it or not. It would also be interesting to see what would happen if/when they figure out why Sakura rose her hand and effectively failed all of them.
It would be cool to know the aftermath of this, since so much would change if they didn't participate in the chuunin exams, along with how this would change the characters and their views.
When I was thinking of this challenge, I was of course thinking of a NaruSaku pairing. But honestly, the aftermath of this small decision would be amazing to see no matter what, since so much could and would change.
