    “And father has left such wounds in all of us. Maybe they cannot be healed, maybe we will never get over all what has happened. But those wounds… I do not think they are meant to be sedated. We are not meant to forget about our past, and distort what is left of it. We are meant to accept it. And I appreciate that you try to do so.”

    “Even if I look like him?”

    “Not even, but because you look like him.”

    Summary

    It's just a stupid question from Gaara, and he really shouldn't get too upset about it: “Why do you always wear the face paint?”
    "'Cause father dearest hated it, eh?", Kankurou replies quickly, but that does not even begin to cover the truths. And the worst thing is, he knows it doesn't.

    “Why do you always wear the face paint?”, Gaara's voice sounds in his head.
    “Because it makes me who I am.”

    Summary

    Gaara lies awake at night afterward. Lies awake and thinks about gigantic fingers made of sand, of the sun blotted out by a golden hand. Lies there, on his hard bed with the hat on his nightstand, and he remembers that no matter what, his mother loves him.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Temari is twenty-one, just barely reaching the cusp of her prime. She is strong beyond comparison for miles in every direction and she has never needed anyone to hold her up because she would rather ensure the happiness of her village. She is the Kazekage in the shadows and the people have come to love her even more than they already did.

     

    Temari was hailed as a sunshine child when she was born. She loved her mother fiercely.

     

    Kankurō is nineteen. He guards Gaara like a lion guards his pride, and Gaara is one of the things that makes him most proud. Temari is the other. His love for his siblings runs deeper than even the face paint which he so carefully applies every day, and everybody in the village smiles when they see him coming.

     

    From the moment he was born people foretold that Kankurō would be a puppet-master. His love for his mother was quiet and presented itself in the form of small but well-thought-out gifts.

     

    Gaara has just turned eighteen. He is fiercely protective of the whole village and he wonders every day why they love him after the person he has been. He, however, loves them without reserve. He loves a great deal of people because his emptiness (which had presided over all of the parts of Gaara’s heart that were not filled with anger) had been replaced with deep, warm love. Sunagakure has ensconced him in her arms and provided for him the love he should have had from the very start.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Gaara still lived for himself, as he always had, but only now did he realise that the ‘self’ was never simply a person’s mind, body and soul. It was the family that raised you, the friends who shaped your beliefs, the people who are so integral to your being that no sacrifice would ever be too much to give to protect them

    Summary

    When people look at Gaara, they see where he broke, where he snapped. They think they are seeing something cracked, something that has collapsed. They look at Gaara, and they think they are seeing failed organs, are seeing broken bones. They are not. They are seeing scar tissue, they are seeing a system crumbled, still working. They are seeing a man who has not. given. up.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    That horrible, violent woman he happened to be head-over-heels in love with was standing at the entrance, hands on her hips and tapping her foot as if she'd been waiting there forever. Considering the people Shikamaru had spent the last few days traveling with, he thought he made damn good time, as if the throbbing in his overworked, overcooked feet weren't indication enough. And that smile on her face told him that she expected him to run up to her, scoop her into his arms, and kiss her as if their lives depended on it. That woman was about as subtle as a dying cat.

    No matter what it looks like, Shikamaru and Temari have a purely professional relationship. Seriously. Please stop asking about it, it's really obnoxious.

    She's the ambassador, for crying out loud. That's it.

    Seriously.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Temari was probably freaking out right about now. He imagined her stomping around, terrorizing her brothers while they scrambled to put together search parties. Knowing her, the Kazekage himself was probably wandering the desert right now, face impassive even as he frantically tried to prevent an explosion of temper from his sister.

    But he didn’t go out of his way for the other’s the way he did for Max.
