As for my "lame, bias, and generally bad argument", you'll have to forgive me if I'm analytically dyslexic and am not nearly as talented as you are in expressing myself properly.
@ralatone: Read a bit of it; looks good. Thanks for the rec.
Well said. However,
There are two things that can be said of pairings in an objective manner, and you can't have one without the other.
The first is that ulitmatly this is Kishimoto's story, and usually if we try and guess his intent, we can stay free of bias.
The only way we stay free of bias in this regard however is to admit to ourselves that anything he as the writer wishes to happen will. Therefore, anything that makes sense within the context of the story is possible.
This means *yay* <---- bias
. . .likely
It also means *boooo* <---- also bias
. . . equally likely
and in the background there are stirrings of
well just about anything. Even the crack ones. Probably not Yaoi, cuz I don't think that would be included in Kishi's intent. But then again, he did put that one *cough* scene with Konhamaru playing a trick on Sakura. (STOP RIGHT THERE HIGHSPEED - BAD SPOILER!)
