    Summary

    The vocabulary bank of an African grey parrot can exceed one-thousand words. That’s not terribly impressive by most human standards, but in the bird world, it’s a big deal.

    With great power comes great responsibility and censorship laws. One particular African grey— in fact, the bird currently perched and bobbing on his travelling wooden stand in the center of the Oha! 4 NEWS LIVE recording studio— has never heard that phrase, and even if he had, he would not have understood it also applies to birds named Buttercup with large vocabulary banks (eight-hundred and thirty-two words and climbing, thank you) on live television.

    Summary

    Orochimaru-sama comes to the Academy and asks for the student with the best calligraphy.

    “Only the girls learn it,” Iruka-sensei says, and Orochimaru-sama clicks his tongue like he disapproves. “But we have several capable young kunoichi.”

    Sakura has the highest marks in calligraphy, higher even than Ino-chan. She has good marks in their painting class, too, and any class that involves holding a pencil. She tells Orochimaru-sama this proudly.

    “How wonderful,” he says, and she’s giddy with praise from the legendary war hero.

    He wants to see her write, so she does. They go to Iruka-sensei’s desk and both her teacher and Orochimaru-sama watch her. Orochimaru-sama asks her to write smaller and smaller. She does. He praises her.

    “Yes,” he says, “I think you’ll do.”

    --

    Fresh from Yuuri's gold medal at 2017 Worlds, he and Victor make good on their plans to get married. If only they were able to agree on what their wedding is supposed to look like.
