As MOD, I'm invoking my MODly rights to do this...

I've seen these Drabble-a-thons around a lot lately, and I think they are a great idea. So... I thought why not do one for Sakura ships? I started to do this for myself a few months ago, trying to write a drabble for each Sakura ship. I didn't get very far, I'm sorry to say. But, I still think it's a good idea. And yes, this idea was shamelessly stolen from kaiwynn.

Banner by rosweldrmr

  1. The Drabble MUST include Sakura, preferably with someone. Though, it can just be slight hints.

  2. LABEL your comment title with the following: Drabble Title - ________/Sakura - Rating (i.e. g, pg, pg-13, r, nc-17)

  3. You can post as many drabbles as you want. There is no limit. In fact, I encourage everyone to write more than one.

  4. The only length requirement is that it must fit into ONE comment (no 2 part-ers allowed). You can fit 4300 characters in a comment (that's including spaces, so be mindful) and if yours is too long - edit, my friend.

  5. Please, at least try to beta these. They're short. There should be no reason for egregious grammatical errors. But, if for some reason there are errors, fear not. You are able to edit comments. Just, try not to do it too often. My inbox is going to be flooded enough as it is with these. =_= Thank you.

  6. Anonymous comments are allowed, if you feel the need. However IP tracking is ACTIVATED - so no drama-rama please.

  7. And lastly, remember to PIMP this everywhere!!! Our goal is to get at least ONE drabble for every Sakura Ship, so we are going to need lots of participants. Think of this like a contest. Which ship can get the most drabbles? Copy and paste the following code:

That's it, so - GET TO IT!!!!

Once you've posted a drabble, I will list it under the pairing. I will make new categories if the need arises. So, don't worry about having to stick to this list. These are just place holders for now. Go wild.

    Disillusionment - Kiba/Sakura - R
    His fangs fit perfectly into the curve of her clavicle, where neck meets with shoulder. Feather-soft grazes of tiny, pointed teeth over heated skin, and whips of pink hair. Sakura loves Kiba’s tattoos. They're bight and angled. And they reminded her of why she nearly loves him.

    She asked him once if he remembered getting them, and he shrugged.

    “I’ve had them for as long as I can remember.” She smiled in the early-morning light streaming into her bedroom, casting long shadows of orange and rust-red across her bed. It was the only night he’d ever slept over. She could still hear wedding bells echoing in the distance of the village.

    He didn’t want to be alone. She, of all people, could understand that.

    That was the first time. He comes almost every night now.

    His hands, strong and made for killing, hold her down as he pushes inside. His jagged eyes frame her against white linens, and she can’t help but wondering what he thinks of when they're like this.

    “Lie to me.” She says him.

    “You,” his husky voice is caught in his throat, the lie is palatable as he closes his eyes and pictures raven hair and white eyes. “I think of you.”

    She let him bring her down, tear her apart, and build her anew with lies and lips and skin, all mangled, all fake. All deception and desperation.

    “Do you love me?” she asks him as they dress – a solemn event that signifies the end of the night, when he will go back to his empty bed and dream of someone else.

    “Yes.” He touches her face, lightly, as he lies to her. It's like an apology, for not being able to love her.

    She smiles, though tears, as she's so skilled at. “I love you too.”

    He knows she means it, part of it, almost all of it. Just except for her heart. Her heart is locked away, hidden, bound with ties of red and fire-seals. She keeps it, just in case, one day her true love returns.

    They're both waiting for love that never really existed, and the mutual disillusionment of time and space conspires to bring them together into a sad, rotating relationship. Founded on flesh and bone, blood and betrayal. They always manage to find placation when it's nothing but her and him, and the beautiful partial lie that holds them together, inside and out.

    The First of Many - Shino/Sakura - G
    It surprised her the first time Shino kissed her. They were on a date. He was shy and polite when he asked, and so full of sincerity she couldn’t say no. The way he turned one foot inward as he removed his sunglasses, squinting in the sunlight, and asked her if she would be interested in letting him escort her to dinner.

    Sakura smiled, sweetly, full of pity and remorse for not returning the innocent, child-like intentions.


    It was a quiet date. They ate slowly, secluded in the back of the room. Tucked in a corner, candlelit table, and a wistful smile from the elderly owner who gave them a complimentary bottle of warm sake.

    Neither one of them had the nerve to tell her that they didn’t drink. So, instead, it sat on the table, reflecting the candlelight as Sakura twisted it against the wooden table, felling the small flowers painted on the porcelain bevel under her fingertips.

    He served her a sliver of beef, cooked over the open grill in the center of the table.

    “Thank you.” She bowed her head to hide her blush at the awkward situation.

    They ate in silence.

    “Sorry,” Sakura apologized sometime later as he walked her home, “for not being better company. I don’t really, you know, do this much.”

    “No.” Shino stopped and lightly touched her forearm, courteously demanding her attention. “It was my pleasure to take you to dinner, Haruno-san.”

    She never noticed before the way his voice sounded when he spoke. Muffled from his jacket collar, but deep and churning. Like an ocean. Sakura smiled. It really had been a pleasant evening.

    Shino stepped in, hesitant and fleeting. He bent his head, and turned into her. Still lightly touching her arm, and she let him, because it really had a nice evening, after all.

    The fabric of his jacket touched her cheek, and as the sensation dipped lower, towards her lips, she let her eyes slip shut and leaned into him. His lips were dry, and pulled tight from nervous apprehension or inexperience, she wasn’t sure.

    It was short, and she had to angle her neck to the side and up to accommodate him. It was chaste and timid, full of propriety and etiquette. And as he pulled back, she could see a pink hue color his pale cheeks.

    She giggled, despite the fact that she hadn’t intended to like him. He was nothing like the picture her imagination formed when she used to dream of her first kiss. But, despite that, despite many things that made her broken and ill-fitted to these sweet, adolescence moments, she enjoyed his company.

    It was purely accidental, purely mistaken coincidence, or misplaced enthusiasm that made her reach for him. Hands on his face, she pulled him back to her. And this time, his lips were soft and warm. Caught off guard, she managed to wrap her arms around his neck and pull herself flush against him.

    Sakura decided she liked the way he was unsure and insecure. It was endearing and alluring, because he was safe.

    That was the first of many dates.

    Ill-Equipped - Neji/Sakura - PG-13
    “Leave.” The rain washed away the blood from Neji’s face. This headband was loose, exposing the bandages that were wrapped around his cursed seal, and Sakura was frozen in time, unable to move.

    “No.” She watched him, cautiously as he took a cursory glance around the wooded area, his white eyes veined and intimidating.

    “You are safe to flee now. Go, before they return.” Sakura took stock of the gash across her arm, tearing through the rain coat she was wearing.

    “No, I’m staying.” She scooted even closer to him in the small ditch he’d dragged her into only a few moments earlier.

    “You are ill-equipped to handle this situation.”

    “I have face and killed a member of Akatsuki before.” Defiant as ever, she wasn’t willing to admit they were outnumbered, and outranked. Besides, he was wounded, perhaps fatally. And she would not just run away.

    “And you were nearly killed yourself, had it not been for –”

    He was cut off by the shink of a kunai sinking into the flesh and bone of her forearm, positioned directly in front of his head. His eyes flashed, almost painfully, in all directions.

    “I can’t seem him!”

    “There.” Sakura pointed, removing the blade, not bothering to heal herself. She pointed to a spot in the distance where a strange man, formed like a giant plant, had just emerged from the ground.

    “Impossible.” Neji focused, straining his eyes and panting from the effort of it. “He has no chakra.”

    “That’s because he’s not real.” Sakura surmised. “This is an illusion.”

    “Very good.” A voice came from the darkness, booming, as if he was in everything. It came from the sky and the water-logged ground. It reverberated through her chest, and echoed off of the rain.

    She turned to Neji, his face pulled tight with rage. “We have to dispel it.”

    He dropped his voice and the corners of his lips quirked up. “Who is it?”

    “Sasuke-kun. He’s trying to distract us. If he wanted to kill us, we’d be dead already.” She closed her eyes, listening, concentrating, forming an image in her mind of the boy she once loved, now hunted. He was just playing with them.

    “Do as I say.” Neji spoke, his lips grazing against the shell of her ear, and Sakura nodded. Her skin hyper aware of everything moving around her. So when he grabbed her wounded arm, spreading the blood and water from the falling rain, she hissed in pain.

    But it was only for a fraction of a second, before the sound of discomfort was swallowed by his lips on hers. He kissed her, forcefully and insistent.

    “Neji, what…?”

    She abandoned hope of an answer when he pushed her down, the back of her head meeting with a tree root, and the rain felt like tiny pinpricks against her skin in the wake of his cold, shivering hands pulling up her skirt to bunch at her waist.

    “Ignore him, ignore the rain. It isn’t real.” He whispered against her skin as his lips moved over her neck, down her shoulder as he unzipped her top, leaving nothing but her wrappings between her and the elements. "Focus on me, on this. This is real."

    No One Wonders Why - Hidan/Sakura - PG13
    It was one of their many fights: one of the ones that happened over and over and over again. No one really knew what they were about, not even the participants themselves, but they were always ugly, and almost always violent.

    Of course, anyone that spent more than five minutes with Hidan could be driven to violence. How Sakura stood him at all was beyond anyone that knew her. Yet, perhaps that was just it. Sakura was naturally prone to violence. She liked the excitement, she liked the thrill, and there were a great many things that were exciting and thrilling about Hidan.

    Unfortunately there were a great many annoying little quirks as well. She was a healer. He was a self-mutilator. When combined, it was a recipe for disaster. He was loud, abrasive and self-involved. He expressed any and all of his emotions so deafeningly, everyone was forced to listen. She bottled her emotions up until the dam burst and there was a flood of epic proportions.

    No. No one really knew why they were together or how they could stand each other. But they had been together so long that everyone stopped questioning why and just sat back and watched. Their fights were epic. And entertaining.

    This one was no exception.

    "Hey, just so you know: it's not that common, it doesn't happen to every guy, and it is a big deal!"

    Within Prison; Pein/Sakura NC-17
    To think there were so many different places for a piercing. So many places for her to run her tongue along the cool metal bars and studs. Too many dips and curves that her warm muscle could flex against. The S-class criminal was reduced to a unorganized mess under the pink haired ninja. His taller frame pressed back against the prison walls, hands chained to the ceiling with her hands holding his waist there. Her upper body was crushed to his hips, tongue flicking along the rings that adorned his navel. Small chest digging against his hips as he flexed under her trying to make her quit the tease and get on with the show.

    He had been a prisoner for 432 days within the walls of Konoha. Under the watch of one Haruno Sakura. This is how they spent their days. It had all started in a blur after one day’s heavy interrogation with another Shinobi. Sakura had been assigned to heal him and from that point on it was a mess of lust. Her chakra tingled and burned all at the same time and her innocence in it all made everything better. She had healed his wounds, perfected his skin and eased his pain all at once, session after session.

    The auburn haired criminal jerked his hip up almost knocking the girl back. She shot him a defiant glare before nuzzling her cheeks down along the center of his ripped black pants. Feeling his need pressing right in to her face as her hands raked over his abused chest past the faint muscle lines and dragging his pants to his thighs in one fatal swipe. He sucked in a deep breath before she had even started. His head tilted back and bumped the brick wall of the prison as a faint whisper of her name left his lips and he jerked forward in to her mouth. Sakura listened to the sounds of the chains straining under his pull and dared to go deeper. Pein’s unique eyes shot open before squeezing shut tightly. That all to familiar feeling building up in the base of his spine. The bold girl under him was too much for him to handle. The moment she took him to the back of her throat.

    He hissed. She swallowed.

    short and sweet are the words we speak - ino/sakura - pg
    ahaha, i love drabble-a-thons. i also love your ship list, wow :O

    Eyes slip shut, soft shimmering images played on dark screens through dark hours. Their cold, cackling laughter drifts down to her ears pressed hard against the ground.

    In her dreams, her savior takes the form of a dark-haired spirit unleashing righteous anger on any who would do her harm. The smiles on their vindictive faces don't last long in his presence. He's dangerous.

    A rush crawls up her skin like pleasure.

    In truth, short-cropped gold strands dance, tantalizing, drifting around determined blue eyes colder than steel. Colder than the brats who tease her, colder than her crush's dismissing grunts whenever she glances his way.

    And she admires that. When do girls learn to be so strong?

    Probably some time before now, she thinks bitterly, and I've already missed out.

    But no, the wide smile on an impulsive face tells her otherwise, tells her go, and bloom, my little bud because I'm watching over you and she doesn't know how much she's imagining.

    From then on the gaze she always feels on the back of her neck belongs to the one who saved her, back before her life was ever in danger.

    Each time, an oddly-proportioned head spins around and sees nothing.

    Also glad you like the list. I LOVE making lists. It's one of my favorite things to do. *is anal*

    Thanks for the inspiration and the great drabble. I love this ship.

    "And she admires that. When do girls learn to be so strong?" was my favorite part.

    Karmic Retribution- Naruto/Sakura-PG
    Something told Naruto that it wasn’t a good plan to follow through with the idea that popped into his head when he saw Sakura bend over to fill her canteen from the river that they were camped by, but he managed to ignore that voice and instead chose to listen to the one that sounded suspiciously like Jiraiya. If he judged the angle right, from his position on a tree branch hanging over the center of the water he would be able to….


    Jumping from the branch and tucking himself into a ball, Naruto hit the rivers surface, and sent a huge wave of water hurtling directly towards his teammate, successfully drenching her from head to toe. As he surfaced laughing, Naruto turned to look at Sakura.

    Completely soaked and incredibly pissed, a virtual cyclonic wind of fury whipping around her, Sakura stood with the vein on her temple visibly throbbing. In her mind, if there had been any justice in the world, Naruto would have been dangling from that tree by his feet begging her for mercy, but as it stood, he was floating about in the river laughing his ass off. Since there wasn’t any karmic justice working with her, she decided that the quickest thing would be to take matters into her own hands.

    Sakura grinned. It so happened that Sai and Yamato were, conveniently, off scouting the perimeter and gathering firewood, so they wouldn’t have to witness the carnage that Sakura intended to create once she got her hands on the laughing idiot in the water. It wouldn’t do for Sai to get any bright ideas, and Sakura did try to keep the maiming down to one person at a time. Tsunade told her to control her temper after all. Sakura thought it was rather convenient that Tsunade managed to forget that little lesson while she pummeled Jiraiya for saying something perverted.

    Wiping the tears of laughter from his eyes, Naruto finally noticed that his Sakura-chan wasn’t glaring or yelling at him from her soggy position on the shore. Instead, she was coming towards him with a smile on her face. This didn’t compute in Naruto’s mind as danger, despite the presence of an eerie grin where her anger would normally have hit critical mass and shot off the Sakura Temper Tantrum Scale. So, thinking that Sakura wasn’t going to kill him, he kept swimming around mindless to the danger slogging through the water towards him.

    Sakura looked down at her blonde teammate enjoying himself in the water, a twisted smirk crossing her face. Inner Sakura was practically cracking her fists in glee. Summoning chakra to her right hand, she calmly spoke.


    Still not recognizing any danger, he cracked open his eyes to look at his pretty teammate. But, before he could revel in the sight of his Sakura-chan with all of her clothes clinging to the curves of her body, Sakura’s fist shot out to hit with the water next to his head. The chakra gathered in it dispersed into the water sending waves away from Naruto’s body in concentric circles. The zone of impact sucked in on it’s self like a black hole, dragging a wide-eyed Naruto down into it.

    Swiftly following her punch with circular swipe of a chakra enhanced leg; Sakura set the water around her flailing teammate to swirling. The whirling water pulled a screaming Naruto upward, eventually sending him hurtling towards the trees lining the bank.

    Hands on her hips, Sakura watched in satisfaction as Naruto took a tree to the midsection, leaving him draped over the low-slung branch unconscious. Still grinning Sakura waded back to shore. That’ll teach him.</>

    Around fifteen minutes later Yamato and Sai walked back into camp. Glancing over at the boy hanging from the tree like a piece of laundry, Yamato turned towards Sakura.

    “Sakura? Why is Naruto hanging from that tree?” questioned Yamato.

    Sakura innocently looked up from her spot at the campfire where she was stirring dinner.

    “He was wet,” was all she said before turning back to her task with a satisfied smile on her face. Heh, isn’t Karma a bitch, eh Naruto?

    Breathe - Deidara/Sakura - PG-13
    Her eyes track a deliberate, inexorable path from the tips of his stretching fingers, over the curves (and lips) of his open palm, along his forearm, lingering for the briefest moment on the harsh scar that bisects his bicep. It’s a scar for which she has a story but not a memory, and that’s true of most of the scars on his body. He tells her their tales, when she asks, but she can never be completely sure he’s told the truth. Her gaze flicks to his collarbone and a scar she does remember, because she put it there.

    Apparently Deidara likes it when she bites him.

    Finally her eyes travel up his strong neck to his face, and his expression freezes her thoroughly.

    His eyes—-blue like the sky behind his head—-are more open than she can remember. They are wide and bright and suddenly the most beautiful thing she’s ever seen. She thinks, momentarily, that he is more of an open book at this moment than any intelligent S-class criminal should ever allow himself to be. His lips are curved, just slightly, just a little bit at the corners, and this too is a revelation. It’s neither an arrogant smirk nor a sadistic grin nor a maniacal leer, though his mouth is well versed in all of these expressions.

    It’s a small, simple smile, and it speaks without moving to form the unnecessary words.

    Come away with me.

    Sakura breathes in. She breathes out. She finds she has to do so again.

    Then her gaze drops into his reaching palm and sees the extra mouth grinning up at her, and suddenly she can’t help but grin too.

    She ignores the hand completely and launches herself directly onto his clay construct. He catches her around the waist easily and laughs, loud and free as the bird lurches into the air. Sakura’s stomach wrenches down in a sensation like falling up, but the vertigo is nothing compared with Deidara’s lips on hers and his hand in her hair and her heart tumbling into his.

    A few run-ins - Kotetsu/Sakura - G
    She wouldn’t call him a friend. He was more like an acquaintance.

    While she never spoke to him outside of work, they did occasionally greet each other in the hallways.

    But then somehow, those small talks turned into actual conversations over the years.

    They started off as jokes (usually about Tsunade and her drooling problem) and eventually led into more serious topics.

    It was then she realized that he was quite handsome…even with the bandage sprawled across his nose.

    Though…being shirtless probably triggered that idea in her head.

    She blushes slightly at a distant memory and recovers with a smirk. Being a medical-nin sure has benefits!

    Somehow though, Sakura knew that this feeling was probably temporary.

    She taps her finger lightly against her cheek and ponders thoughtfully.

    She wouldn’t call it a crush. Just merely a tiny infatuation.

    He ran his finger up her back. Letting her soft smooth skin glide beneath it. Her soft pink hair danced at his finger tips, tickling them as they drifted along her shoulders.

    He let his onyx eye drink in the sight of her. Her delicate breaths as she slept on her front. The way she fisted the pillow, clutching it so it wouldn't escape during her slumber. The way her lips parted begging to be kissed. The way the sheet loosely lay over her waist.

    He might never have taught her much during her childhood. He might never have taught her much during her teens. But she had taught him so much in the past month that he knew he wouldn't let her go.

    Kakkashi let himself lay down next to her, dragging her soft feminine body closer to his. He let his arm snake tightly around her waist. A sigh of contentment escaped her lips.

    Perhaps he was never meant to be her teacher, just her student.

    Not the Face, Please - Sasuke/Sakura - pg-13
    It is in the heart of the forest, where the battle began. Trees are splintered everywhere, and the ground now resembles something that a mighty earthquake might have conquered. Fire is everywhere, too, turning almost everything into unrecognizable ash.

    In the middle of it all stood none other than the almighty Uchiha, stance graceful, and fighting for all he was worth – against one very big, muscled Stone nin.

    A very muscled Stone nin.

    “Wow,” Sakura muttered, staring at her now-back teammate (back for three months, anyway) in what could only be termed as contemplation. “Now that’s what I call biting off more than you can chew.”

    Naruto seemed worried, particularly because the enemy shinobi seemed...well, strong. “Let’s help him.”

    “One minute. Give him one minute.”

    Naruto pointed. “But that thing is twice his size...and strength! The teme will get pummeled for sure!”


    Sakura brightened. “Okay! Two minutes, then!”

    Naruto gawked. “What? You want him to get pummeled?”

    “Yes,” she murmured, expression blissful.

    “But Sakura-chan...aren’t you guys getting married in a month?”

    “Of course.”


    “Let’s just call it payback, Naruto. He’s been an ass all these years, after all.”

    Naruto seemed to think this over. Then he shrugged. “Well, okay...if you say so. But here I thought you’d want him to look good in your big wedding da—”

    He never got to finish his sentence – mostly because Sakura was suddenly cursing with all her might, and attacking the Stone nin with chakra-laden fists.

    “Shit! Darn it! You stupid shinobi! Stop attacking my fiancé’s face! Down, attack down – JUST KICK HIM IN THE BALLS, NOT THE HANDSOME FACE!”

    One minute later, the shinobi was down for the count – and a certain pink-haired kunoichi was tending to the love of her life’s injury-filled face, and muttering what a stupid, stupid man he was (to which he, being an Uchiha, disapproved of and glared fiercely). Then, suddenly, she was kissing him hard, and for all she was worth, until they were both panting for breath, and Sasuke was looking pretty much dazed and content. And back to smirking (even when she continued yelling at him). From that moment on, Naruto had only two thoughts in mind.

    It had to be love.


    And girls were weird.

    It's Always the Same - Genma/Sakura - PG-13
    “What’s wrong?”


    “You can’t write it of as PMS; I know that was two weeks ago. What’s wrong?”

    “Nothing, Genma.”

    “Maybe you didn’t hear me...What’s wrong?”


    “No really, what’s wrong?”

    “Nothing, senpai.”

    “Oh, stop that now. I told you not to call me that, outside of the bedroom. Now, tell me what’s wrong.”

    “Nothing.” Sakura stopped dead in her tracks, her boyfriend only avoiding running straight into her back by sidestepping her. Genma leisurely moved in front of her and smiled.

    “C’mon, babe, you know I’m not just asking to save my own hide anymore…” as slowly as he dared, he placed his hands on her shoulders, “What is the matter?”

    She slapped his hands away. “Don’t call me babe.”

    “You called me senpai.”

    Sakura had been pointedly looking to the side as she directly addressed him, but slowly she turned her head and lifted her stone-cold, green eyes to clash against his amber ones. The look she gave him was akin to that she gave enemies on missions, before she pummeled them with her superhuman strength: menacing and deadly.

    “Sakura…Tell me…What’s wrong?”

    The deadly edge in her narrowing gaze softened to merely threatening. He could practically feel her sizing him up. Suddenly, she huffed at him, spun on her heel back in the direction she had been headed, and stalked off.

    Apparently he hadn’t proved himself a worthy—or loving, or generous, or moral, or whatever other adjective he may have haplessly neglected to take with his vitamins that morning—enough listener quite yet.

    “Women…” Genma smirked to himself as he set of in pursuit of her, “They never change…”
