Hi anon, thanks for the prompt. Awkward kidfic sounds like it’ll be fun! 🙂
Though I think I’m going to have to do something like “Five Cousins Shikadai Might Have Had” kind of thing instead of just one strictly Shikaara kidfic…
Okay, anon, so I went and did some research and I’d kind of like to get your opinion on something but since you’re anon I obviously can’t message you hence reblogging this post. So here’s the issue:
I’m looking at the Narutopedia pages for Gaara’s kids and it’s very easy to interpret them as being adopted (in part because none of them look like him and also because it only says that they’re part of the Kazekage clan and that Gaara’s their father but no mention of a mother). And I personally headcanon that Shikako and Gaara would adopt anyway. So I guess what I’m saying is, do you mind if I just use the canon second-gen Sand siblings as Shikako and Gaara’s kids?
I mean, it’s not like we know very much about them anyway. So I can just make up how Shikako and Gaara (and probably Kankurou) would raise them in Suna…
What do you think, anon?
Aaand I might as well say that “today” (September 3rd) is a missed post because I’m still working on this ficlet–should be posted up for September 4th’s post.
Trust me, anon, when I get to the next gen Sand Sibling installment of Dreaming of S(omething) there will be enough feels about heritage and succession and family that I don’t think biological relation is necessary.
I may borrow original!anon’s idea that Shinki is from an illegitimate branch of the Kazekage clan–because he’s clearly the one I want to pick on most–but other than that… I dunno, it just doesn’t vibe with me?
And, well, there will probably be more drama than fluff–but I will try my best to make it happy resolution drama? 😀
