Wandering // Naruto

"After all this time?" -- "Always."

Confession time: Itachi's death still makes me cry. Still.

I will probably be 80 and in a nursing home and still crying over this shit.

I have no idea how someone as inept at storytelling as Kishi is has the power to create a situation so genuinely heart-wrenching.

Also, chlothar, I am going to make you watch this with me this weekend. I don't even care what you say.

(I'm rewatching it because today I tried to explain to my middle-aged therapist the prevalence of brother-brother incest in fandom, particularly as it relates to the fabulous Uchiha clan. Admit it, you wish that you could have listened in on that conversation.)
