I've finally received permission from ship-manifesto to post it!

So ladies and gentlemen:
- over 30,000 words
- 50,000 if you count the Why I favour NaruSaku over SasuSaku ghost annexe
- representing a collective NSLAP experience over nearly 2 years
- the essay itself requiring over half a year for completion (work began in February 2006)
- dozens of quoted scenes
- um... a Lot of images, including gifs sequences

All of which to present NaruSaku, not as one concept, but the combination of many. Not as one scene, but a continuity, an ongoing development. Putting forward just about every aspect: its development, its natural, its psychology. Also answering some frequent arguments.

I bring you, my greatest essay to date, in content, organization or presentation:

To give you an idea, this is the index:

Comments to the manifesto go to the first post there. Enjoy! :thumbs:

Yes, I did work really hard. :S It's not to brag but... I did spend over 100 hours on that thing, after all.

Enjoy! =D

After seeing parts of it in development, I'm looking forward to seeing the whole thing in one piece.

Although I might still have to read it piecemeal because I don't know how long it'll be until I have the time to read it all in one sitting. tongue.gif

No problem! ^__^ Even I have trouble reading it in one go. Beta-ing gave me headaches... I was really surprised that someone else has already finished reading it. XP

But it's over now! Whooooot! a_dance.gif

I was actually wondering why nobody ever did something like this before. People always took one scene and made an essay on it.

I don't have to be in class for another hour and I can ditch biology tomorrow, I vow to finish this by the end of tomorrow or I will do 500 laps around Konoha on my hands!

Ha, there will be no laps around Konoha for this reader as of 5:45 mountain standard. That was a fantastic read and should in fact be introductory reading for this place, some part of a membership packet or something like that.

Thanks for the comments everyone! Once you've all finished reading it, mind posting a small comment in the comments section of the manifesto? =D

A higher number of comments would make it stand out more, therefore getting more people curious about the awesomeness that is NaruSaku, thus getting more converts! =D Besides, it's not cheating. You Did comment after all. Just not there. =O

NaruSaku for the WIN!!!

Wonderful. Eloquently, methodically, and apparently objectively put. I found the link on Kaze's livejournal and raced over here after reading it to make sure the people knew, and found this here. Well done, and thanks for the Annex.

Thank you all thank you all. Don't forget to leave a word at the manifesto page if you can! :3

Though uh... fess-up, people. How many of you read the manifesto without waiting for the media to load, as I've just found out some people have done? huh.gif The media is worth it, really. Particularly in part 3.

Congratulations on a well written, well explained essay. Took me around an hour or more to read it all and has just made me fall in love with NaruSaku all over again! I have been anticipating this manifesto since the beginning...( is a narutofan lurker a_shifty.gif ) and am just wowed at all the thoroughness.

Oh and by media you mean the animated pics right?

oh and do you believe that if given proper development, Naruto and Sakura will achieve consummate love?

omfg.gif .... Wow.

**bows down**

That was so awesome. You even presented arguments against it and everything! Are you on a debate team or something? In any case, good job! th_glomp.gif

If you decide to undertake updating it for new chapters, I'll be there to read it.

P.S.- I LURVED that part where it said something like, "If other pairings are chocolate, then NaruSaku is a nice fresh salad." I TOTALLY agree. (I wub.gif salad.)

Great essay. Shows good points, and you really got your feelings out. Most essays are " SasuSaku sucks, I like NaruSaku FIN". You backed up your words with hardcore evedince. w00t.gif It was awesome
