i do not like sasuke and i thought about how i thought he could be redeemed and the answer i came up with was. give him to small children. give him to small children with soft hands and small faces and big big big dreams so he can learn how to handle people’s feelings. no one cares about sasukes rad cool Brother Feelings Eyes at the academy because theyre all in their single digits or tweens. they’re impressed by his ability to do small katon. enough for maybe roasting a marshmallow. theyre impressed by his ability to aim and throw things and also by his connections with all these cool important konoha shinobi. i can like a sasuke who gets drool and snot on him and whos jounin vest pockets have bandaids and pens for marking tests.
