All the elation from the NaruHina-ness of Chapter 615 left me so mentally incapacitated this morning, I didn’t even register the fact that there were other characters talking in between the panel where Hinata slaps Naruto and the one where he holds her hand…
I was rereading just now and realized they showed Bee-san, Kurama and everybody and I’m like… oh snap, other people.
MERRY CHRISTMAS by Langston Hughes
Published In New Masses (Dec. 1930)
Merry Christmas, China
From the gun-boats in the river,
Ten-inch shells for Christmas gifts,
And peace on earth forever.
Merry Christmas, India,
To Gandhi in his cell,
From righteous Christian England,
Ring out, bright Christmas bell!
Ring Merry Christmas, Africa,
From Cairo to the Cape!
Ring Hallehuiah! Praise the Lord!
(For murder and rape.)
Ring Merry Christmas, Haiti!
(And drown the voodoo drums –
We’ll rob you to the Christian hymns
Until the next Christ comes.)
Ring Merry Christmas, Cuba!
(While Yankee domination
Keeps a nice fat president
In a little half-starved nation.)
And to you down-and-outers,
(“Due to economic laws”)
Oh, eat, drink, and be merry
With a bread-line Santa Claus –
While all the world hails Christmas,
While all the church bells sway!
While, better still, the Christian guns
Proclaim this joyous day!
While holy steel that makes us strong
Spits forth a mighty Yuletide song:
SHOOT Merry Christmas everywhere!
Let Merry Christmas GAS the air!”
Whatever causes night in our souls may leave stars. — Victor Hugo: Ninety-Three (via petite—fleur)

Every time I’m just like:
MY HEART IS ERUPTING WITH HAPPINESS, RAINBOWS EVERYWHERE!
I’M SHAKING, I… CAN’T… EVEN… AAAAAAHHHHHH
I DON’T CARE WHAT ANYONE GETS ME FOR CHRISTMAS ANYMORE
SANTA KISHI DONE GAVE ME MY OTP!
So I’m reading Chapter 614 and I see this and at first I’m all like:
But THEN I consider some possible explanations for this horrifying scenario and then I’m all like:
“D’oh! Oh you Uchiha are so funny! Using your genjutsu to make the fandom believe we just saw Neji die. You cruel little, psychotically spiteful tricksters, you!”
Yup, Neji will be back…
Yes sir, you watch…
He’ll be back…
