This applies to KibaHina, ShikaIno, ChouIno, KakaAnko, and most of the Gaara pairings that aren't already crack by the other two. The list for this one goes on further than others.
1. NaruHina: Next to no development save for the fact that they're on the same mission/in the same group, and even THEN, it seems neither have really spoken to one another.
2. Well, since Naruto is so head over heals for Sakura, I think I would consider the chances of HinaNaru nonexistent; especially since NaruSaku is no longer as one-sided as it used to be in Part 1.
3. According to you, HinaNaru also doesn't have much possibility, seeing as how it's not only one-sided, but Naruto doesn't even speak with her on a regular basis.
So, I guess according to your definition, HinaNaru applies as a "crack pairing".
...Just saying, I'm not trying to be rude or anything. >_>;
I'm sure hardcore fans of KibaHina and ShikaIno like the pairings for more reasons than that they're teammates...
There was a comment by Chouji, about how Shikamaru must be disappointed that Ino was already cheering for Sasuke or something like that. So I think that's where a lot of people starting thinking there might be something between Shika and Ino. *shrugs*
Well, Kiba and Naruto are a lot alike; they're both rambuntious and outgoing, and Kiba seems determined to get up and keep fighting, despite everything. If not, protecting the people he loves is just as important as personal growth. Kiba is pretty much what Hinata idolizes, and they know each other much better than Hinata knows Naruto; if Hinata actually opened her eyes over those two and a half years, I think Kiba's character would have a much stronger impact on her character than it currently does. And I'm finding it really difficult to continue to explain why I lke KibaHina XD
As for the ShikaIno pairing: Shikamaru and Ino are team mates, all of Team 10 has fathers that work together. They're all like childhood friends (supposedly, at least). I think it would a little demeaning to my pride (if I were a guy) when one of my teammates, whom I've known for longer than the time that we've been team mates, started cheering for a guy she hardly knows anything about. But knowing Shikamaru, he probably wouldn't have cared much. XD
I think InoChou is more canon, since it was implied that Chouji may have liked/ likes Ino after Shikamaru's promotion to Chuunin (I think).
