AU: NarutoxSasuke in DOS with Shikako as a surrogate mum if they ever wanted a baby?


O-okay, anon, this is… hm…

I… first off, have to go back into NaruSasu headspace–which, actually, there are some doujinshi I’ve been meaning to read, so that shouldn’t be too hard–but which I don’t normally equate with DoS as opposed to other Naruto fanfiction since, unsurprisingly, DoS is Shikako-centric so most of my recursive fic is also Shikako-centric (or Sakako, for next generation).

But I also… I don’t really… would Naruto and Sasuke even want a baby and would they want Shikako to be surrogate mother for said baby? I kind of figure they wouldn’t really want kids necessarily but if they did… wouldn’t they adopt? Given that a lot of their bonding/mutual respect for each other was the whole–we are both young orphans thing–wouldn’t they want to adopt?

Although, okay, even if they did want biological children, I kind of find it… not that Shikako would say no, but that Naruto and Sasuke wouldn’t ask her because they know she’d feel obligated to say yes even though she’d rather not?

Sorry anon, this is just going up against a lot of personal head canons that I don’t quite know how I’ll write around… Can I interest you in some Kareru Uzumaki fic with NaruSasu + Shikako instead?


Yeah, I mean I understand it’s kind of like a trust/vulnerability thing–you know, like “we would like to have a child and you’re our best friend and we want to involve you in this big step in our lives” and for some people it is an honor of sorts but it’s also… like… no thank you? Like, there’s a difference between being someone’s Maid of Honor and being someone’s surrogate and I can definitely see Shikako being one enthusiastically but the other not so much…

And it’s like… if this is, again, about reviving the Uchiha population (or the Uzumaki population for that matter) then there would be volunteers for such a program that would probably be okay with having someone else raise that child? Pregnancy isn’t a willy nilly decision, I agree, but there are definitely different stances on it and for Shikako it is, as you said, a sacrifice and a huge effort. For a different person who volunteers for this medical program it might not be such a huge sacrifice per se if they’re getting compensated for the effort outside of friendship.

So, you know, if Naruto and Sasuke really want a biological child there’d be others who would be better choices for surrogate than Shikako.
