who do you think will be on sakako’s genin team?

If you look closely at Sakako’s section in Our Share of the World and in the later part of Walking Around (Like Regular People) I mentioned that Sakako’s genin teammates were likely to be Boruto and Mitsuki since, like Shikako did with Sakura, Sakako would take Sarada’s place. (And the Academy teachers probably figure that since Boruto is Naruto’s son and Sakako is Shikako and Sasuke’s daughter, they’d minimize the next gen Lucky Seven effect and keep it as much to one team as possible. :P)

Unless that was a typo and you meant the Walking Around version of Sarada? In which case… I kind of briefly touched on it in this post, but now that I think more strongly on it… I’d think she’d end up on Team Chiyako (aka Shino’s little sister as their jounin sensei) wiiiiiith Sarada Haruno, as of yet unknown Inuzuka of this generation (whether Hana’s kid or Kiba’s kid or just some other Inuzuka), and a genjutsu user. Possibly of Yakumo’s clan or even Yakumo’s adopted child (I don’t think she’d want to have biological children and risk her condition being passed down). 

Or, if Chiyako has already ascended as Aburame matriarch and isn’t available to be a jounin sensei, then it’d be Team Ranmaru with Sarada, next gen Inuzuka, and next gen Aburame (Shino’s kid or some other Aburame).

Either way, they would be more a support type team (like my *fingers crossed* prediction for Team Anko composed of Sakura, Yakumo, and Isaribi) or a search and rescue type team (like I headcanon for Team Hana aka my prediction for what will happen to Hanabi, Chiyako, and Ranmaru that I made long long ago in Don’t Hold Back) instead of the POWERHOUSES of Team Sevens past.

(Ah, now I don’t know if I should tag Sarada posts as Sarada Haruno to differentiate her from canon Sarada. I mean, she’s still genetically canon Sarada. But her backstory is waaaaaay different and she’d actually go by Sarada Haruno instead of Sarada Uchiha.

Eh, what the hell, I’ll tag posts of her with both)

Instead of clouds, Sakako watches the void between stars. I mean, with the cosmic implications of Falling into the Black and the incredible perceptions of the Sharingan, and all… (really liked the cousins chapter, though my first thought was that Sakura and Sasuke had still ended up together, and named their kid after Shikako. Instead of after Salad.)

That’s so–HEAD CANON ACCEPTED!

All starlight is from millennia and eons long past. If her version of the Sharingan–warped by the Nara’s penchant for the shadows–can actually see ghosts, then she probably finds stargazing comforting. Everyone can see these ghosts, she is not alone in this.

(I actually wasn’t sure whether or not Sarada should exist as well but considering Shikako has displaced Sakura on Team Seven, there wouldn’t even be that smidgeon of a relationship between Sakura and Sasuke that would lead to canon Sarada.

I mean, unless there’s some kind of Uchiha repopulation program going on and Sakura volunteers because she wants a child but understands that it’s not a romantic entanglement with Sasuke? So Sarada might still exist somehow… or a Sakura-Sasuke child named Sarada, not specifically the canon iteration of Sarada.

But DoS Sakura is a lot different than canon Sakura, she’ll probably find and fall in love with someone else entirely and, if she wants, start a family with them instead of having a platonic child with her childhood crush.)

I think Karin died in canon DoS? Because Sasuke didn’t leave the group in the Forest of Death and save her? At least, from what I remember and according to the TVTropes page (in the Death by Adaptation section). So that scenario can’t really happen in this possible DoS future, but it’s fantastic to think of it happening in canon.

Depending on how public reputation is for the Uchiha after the whole Obito/Madara disaster, Konoha might not want to repopulate the Uchiha clan.

Then again, power. And seeing as how Sasuke isn’t a renegade walking disaster contributing to the poor reputation of the Uchiha in DoS maybe they’ll want to do it?

But would Sasuke want to? Like, after he’s found out everything about his clan… then again, it’s been his second life long goal since he was seven so…

Uh, but yes. If there is an Uchiha repopulation program and Sakura participates, it would definitely be interesting if canon Sarada existed. Her entire backstory would be different, though, but I’ve always been fond of the idea of an Uchiha medic nin (because the Sharingan would be soooooo helpful for healing).

She, like Sakura, will probably still be replaced on Team Seven by Sakako because more prestigious parentage and all, but she might very well have her own genin team anyway? Because… like… is there no Inuzuka in this particular generation? What about Aburame? Does Boruto have the Byakugan? Does he have a cousin via Hanabi? What’s going on there?

Or maybe next gen Team Medic? Maybe Hana has a kid who is also an Inuzuka specializing in medicine? Chiyako is their jounin-sensei?🤷 ¯_(ツ)_/¯

I just had a horrible thought: There might be a kind of horrific battle for the inheritance thing going on, though, if Sasuke doesn’t specify who is his heir. (There might still be a horrific battle for the inheritance thing going on anyway, with the specified heir being at risk for assassinations) Not that Sakura and Shikako would participate in that kind of thing–but who knows about the other volunteers?

Alternatively! Ino and Sakura end up together; Sai is the sperm donor for Inojin, Sasuke is the sperm donor for Sarada. Meaning Sarada and Inojin are siblings even though they aren’t genetically related, making this generation’s network of family relations EVEN MORE convoluted. (Poor Kareru, it’s so hard to keep track of which of his little cousins aren’t related to his other little cousins).
