Re: Naruto Pairings FC
Ok, this is how I look at it from each character potential perspective.
Sasuke's feelings towards Sakura at most could be that he does have something emotionally deeper for her than just a teammate and friend. Though at the very least he respects her for everything she's done for him.
On the flip side Sakura's feelings for Sasuke could be alot more....dramatic ? At the most she could still feel that loving passion that she's held since the very beginning of the series. At the least she may still love him (probably does) but with time she's matured and may feel differently towards him after everything he's done.
As far as her feelings towards Naruto goes, at the most I think that she has developed deeper feelings for Naruto (At least from part 1) and finally see's what he's truely worth. At the very least she could have gained alot of respect for her teammate and may like him due to his spirit and nothing more than that.
As far as his feelings for Sakura goes, I think that at most he truely still loves her deeply and what may have started out as a crush from part one is now full of meaning of why he admires her. At the least, he still probably likes her tue to asking her out to dates and all that, but doesn't let go of the fact that she loved Sasuke deeply at one point, and wont let his feeling go any further for whatever reason it may be in the end.
As far as Naruto's feelings towards Hinata goes, at the most he aknowledges her drive to get better as strength as well as her kindness. Hell, he may even be physically attracted to her which I'll give NaruHina fans as they need as much help as they can get, but at this moment I think most of us can agree that he doesn't have any feeling close to love for her yet not even a crush. He may just like her a bit outside of being a friend and a fellow ninja, maybe.
As far as Hinata is concerned, she basically has deep feelings for Naruto. No ifs ands or buts about it. There is a very stong chance that it is love, but also consider the fact that she doesn't know him fully, actually much at all to say it's love. But hey love is blind sometimes ya know.
So thats how I view the "big 4" on each side of the coin. I think that these are but a few reasons why NaruHina, SakuSasu and NaruSaku are the most popular pairings, because they all have some realistic chance of happening one way or the other. From there thats where people take sides. BEGUN THE PAIRING WARS HAS!
