Soooo, I don't know if anyone actually follows this community anymore (sadface), but possibly one of the greatest things in the history of Naruto has just been released ...

OMG. I'M SPEECHLESS.
Reactions? Thoughts? Squees?

I squeed so hard when my RP friend sent me the link. My roomie thought something was wrong. haha. I had such a blast reading it. I totally did not expect them to be all chibi, but it was so cute! Definitely not quite like I expected--I was expecting it to be more serious like Naruto--but I am so excited about it!

I want to cosplay Lee in his bikini and get my friend to cosplay turtle!Neji with me. heh.

OMG yes I have a sudden fuzzy warmness for Chibi!Lee and Chibi!Tenten! And Neji seriously gets cuter every time I see him now XD God I'm so happy this series is so fun and random, it so beats angst-land in the regular series! <3

I can't wait to see the turtle!Neji costumes that are sure to come out XD

I KNOW! Oh my goodness! So excited about the lack of angst! I mean, come on! You cannot have Lee being uber angsty for too long! He's Lee! He bounces back!!!

Oh, yes. I will definitely convince my friend no matter what!!! Yosha!

I really hope that we also see Chibi!Gaara! <3 haha. But that's my Gaara-fangirl and my GaaLee-fangirl talking. ^^

Haha and thatttt, my friends, is what makes Lee different from all his angsty emo comrades <3 I seriously wonder what the original series would have been like if Lee was the main char

SO TRUE! I feel like even when Lee's being angsty he's just got such a spirit about him, he can't help but bounce back!!!

Of course not! You are so OUT of the closet about it. ;)

I know! Like, even when he gets really down (like around when he was getting his surgery), he just pushes himself to work harder, and he has some really sweet scenes with Gai, and he's back!

Oh what the hell, I find the thought of them together adorable! <3

That is why Lee's the best! He is truly a splendid shinobi, who will prevail and become even stronger while enjoying the Springtime of his Youth!

heehee. That's because they are adorable. Sadly, the pairing just doesn't get enough love though. It is so hard to find good fanfiction or art of them. [sigh] It makes me sad. But that's why I'm gonna do my best to get people on the leegaara comm interested in a fic/art exchange. ^^ Cause GaaLee is my OTP. <3

Holy shit I did not know that an active LeeGaa community existed! Actually, I didn't know that ANY active Lee comm existed! T_T Nevermind that though XD
I'd do it, if I could actually draw // had time to write fics, hehe.
Hmm, have you read Diplomatic Relations? It's a few years old, actually, so you probably have, but I absolutely love the author's work!
We should seriously try to reactivate THIS comm too :P LEE doesn't get enough love, poor guy

Yeah, it's kind of amazing that there is an active community for Lee and Gaara. The fandom is so small, and I think part of the problem is not only is it small, but it's also very divided between people who ship Gaara as the uke and Gaara as the seme. I personally hate that dynamic because I think that's a very poor representation of real life and how relationships work, but I also hate it because it just shrinks the fandom down so much.

Aww, that's too bad. I've only got one person who is willing to participate, and well, my hope is that I can get more interest. At least I know there are people out there interested in reading and viewing! ^^

I have indeed read DR. It was my first introduction to GaaLee, and I adore it. Have you read the sequel, Kindred? It's wonderful. She is a great author. I also like her Gundam Wing stuff.

I agree that this comm needs more activity. I found it recently, but I figured I might as well join, and I've done my best to contribute! And hopefully with Lee's new spin-off, that will help!

LMAO, I've never really been into the whole seme/uke thing. I'm not that much into, erm, THAT part of the pairing (or of any pairing, really), but I do agree that it's so stupid that people get caught up over something like that. I mean, really!?? I think that LeeGaa is actually one of the bigger shippings compared to some others though - I was surprised by how many people actually shipped it! I wasn't the only crazy one, hallelujah!

Hmm, well it's pretty recent, so maybe give a little more time? :P Too bad not many people really check the Naru comms that much (well, except the SasuSaku comm I'm in seems pretty active)

I'm planning to read it as soon as I have time! (Finals, derp) I wish there were more epic writers like her!

I've been part of this comm since, like, Feb, but almost nothing has happened, sadface. It's great that you're contributing, I'm sure all Lee fans really appreciate it! Haha, I'd contribute if only I knew how to. Oh, Lee fandom, come back again~! He really deserves this, after being ignored for like 5 years! >.> I think the new series will help :D

Yeah, I don't like the seme/uke thing. I have... strong feelings about it. Which comes from being in the LGBT community and feeling like it's a poor depiction of gay relationships. And since the seme/uke thing translates into their relationship too, not just in the bedroom, it's hard to find fics that I like. I think it is actually popular, but not that popular. At least, not anymore. I don't know if the other Lee or Gaara ships are more popular. Well, I know for sure GaaNaru [twitch] is, but I don't know if like LeeSaku or NejiLee or LeeTen are more popular than GaaLee. [shrugs]

Mh. The Naruto comms I'm in are pretty popular. Well, at least the SasuNaru one is. I'm kind of all over the place, in a bunch of different comms. But it has gotten less popular, because of how much it's dragged on and gone in circles.

Yeah her stuff is awesome. I wish I could write like that.

Lee does deserve it! I honestly can't believe that he gets so little love. Every time I cosplay him I get soooo much love from people. So it's really surprising that this comm is so quiet.

Ohh, I see. Well, me personally, I'm a tad too young to get involved in the whole ~bedroom dynamics~ part, so I gloss over that as best as I can, but honestly, I agree! It is SO hard to find good fanfic for anything - that's actually good to read! Only about 5% of what gets out there is good in the first place!

Hmm, I actually see LeeGaa more than GaaNaru. Maybe it's just the places I've been ... idk. SakuLee is pretty popular, though, I think. Ooh, SasuNaru. I can definitely see it being popular (though, not a fan XD), it's part of the big 3 (4?). I honestly think Naruto as a whole is becoming less popular nowadays, people are getting TIRED of seeing everything get more and more childish and superpower-hacked and tired of waiting for their fav chars to get back onscreen.

This comm is quiet because Kishi has wrote him out of the manga for LIKE FIVE YEARS >___> I'm sure you can understand my anger ^^;; The Lee fanclub over at the Naruto forum is really quiet too ;-; I've been considering joining just to fire that place up again. I think a lot of people have just sort of ... forgotten about him *sob*

How old are you, then? >_> But yes, it is difficult to find stuff that I enjoy.

Do you? Huh. I see it a lot on DA and on the naruto_news group. I don't look for GaaNaru, but I've seen it around. Hell, I've seen a lot of SasuGaa too. Which is weird. So weird.

And I definitely think GaaLee makes more sense. Gaara might have his unrequited crush on Naruto, but Naruto is way too obsessed with Sasuke. It just doesn't work. And two Kage in a relationship would probably upset the political balance between the five nations!

haha. You can see it? haha. Yeah, SasuNaruSasu is the most popular in the fandom because of the canon stuff with them. I think the biggest ships would probably be NaruSasuNaru, NaruSaku, and SasuSaku. Maybe KakaIru? I don't like KakaIru though. I used to by default of my friends liking it and saying that it made sense, but I never really saw it and I just kind of... meh. But then KakaYama. I like them. But yes, a lot of people have grown weary with the way the story went I'm hoping that these recent chapters with all our loved characters like Gaara, Gai-sensei, and so on bring some love back to the fandom. And good writers.

Yeah. Lee was so popular too! I don't understand! T_T I liked the first half of the series, and the Rescue Gaara arch of Shippuden. Then I kind of got bored. But now it's picking back up! OH YEAH!

Well, I'm 16, and I know there's kids younger than me who are into it, but I'd really just prefer not to, you know? That kind of stuff doesn't really ... appeal to me yet hehe

Oh, that's the Naru comm I forgot to join XD. Eh, I understand GaaNaru (but don't really care for it), but SasuGaa? That's, like, bizzare. Heck, I've even seen GaaSaku ... or GaaHina ... and it'd be like, wtf?

I don't think Gaara has much of a crush on Naru at all besides being brainwashed by his annoying Talk no Jutsu. And, lol, good point, it definitely would. GaaLee is sooo much cuter anyway - they've had so much interaction, both as rivals and as friends. It's easy to see the dynamic!

NaruSaku is DEFINITELY one of the biggest ones, and so's SasuNaruSasu due to the yaoi-fangirls. I think NaruHina has gotten pretty big too, but I think SasuSaku is shrinking because, well, the more Sasu goes cuckoo, the smaller the chance gets. But eh, a fangirl can hope, eh? I don't really get KakaIru or why its popular (I like KakaGai more, honestly), but at least it's better than KakaSaku, meh. I think some people have been lost forever, but hopefully some of the ones who are just following to follow along will find something riveting?

ME TOO! THAT'S EXACTLY THE PARTS I LIKED! Well, and I also liked Jiraiya vs Pain, and Sasuke vs Itachi. But that's about it, really. I think after the Gaara arc, stuff started to get disjointed. And every arc was new characters. I'm excited for the war, though just not the Rasengan training

Awww, that's adorable. It's good to know not every teenager is trying to hook-up. I think sex is a natural part of life, but it's not something you should just rush into. So it's good to have that mindset. A lot of people make mistakes because of sex, so uh, go you!

haha. Yeah, I understand it in a one-sided fashion. Gaara definitely has a very... mild crush. It's something I think he doesn't understand, and it's more rooted in being a friend and being grateful to Naruto than anything else. And Gaara with any female character just baffles me. Not because I think he's gay, or can't stand het (I ship a tone of het stuff) but because I think that based on how Kishimoto represents women and also the culture in the manga and Japan in general, if Gaara were to find someone appealing, they would need to be strong and women don't fit that. I think Gaara is vastly asexual, but if someone loved him [cough-Lee-cough] then sex would come of it, eventually.

Ah, yes. NaruSaku is popular. Oh, right. NaruHina. I forgot that one. That one would probably be in the Big Four. But don't knock SasuNaru. It's not just because of the yaoi fangirls. It's because of what's in canon, yo. ^^ Kishimoto does a good job of making their pairing practically canon without saying it, but so much of the show revolves around Naruto and Sasuke, Naruto's endless chase for him, and all that. I think Sasuke's bat-shit crazy, and too power hungry to care, but I think if he could love anyone, it'd be Naruto, which is something we see early on in the Zabuza Arch.

KakaIru just... whatever with that. Bleh. KakaGai... I don't ship it, but looking to the canon, I can see why people do. I'd say it's more canon than KakaIru any day. But I still prefer KakaYama. I kind of prefer Gai to be asexual because he's Gai-sensei. I cosplay Lee, so the idea of Gai-sensei and someone is just weird. I just see him as this like, really strong, awesome ninja who isn't with anyone.


And yes! The war! Not the training. He's trained so much. Good gods. We get it already. haha. But oh man. The war! I just hope nothing happens to Gaara [wibbles] I would be so mad at Kishimoto-sensei if he let something happen to him!

Hehe, yeah, I think it's a natural part of life too, but I'll get there when I get there~ Thanks!

I think Gaara feels indebted to Naruto. And there's some kind of "keep connection" between them because they're both jinchuuriki or whatever. I just don't think Gaara has enough connection/interaction with any char besides his siblings, Naruto, and Lee to make a functional shipping. I do find it a shame that Kishi can't write good women to save his life >___> Not that I understand how relationship techniques work very well, lmao xD

Ehh, I don't personally dig SasuNaruSasu because Kishi's gone through the pains of setting up this huge love triangle that it'd be a bit bizarre for it to end with SasuNaruSasu. And because the main characters at this point just bore me XD. They definitely have platonic love, though, and in a way Naru is cuckoo for Sasu just as Gaara is cuckoo for Naru. *lesigh*

Honestly I don't really dig any of the adult pairings, so I'm not sure what's with all of that. Except JiraiyaxTsunade is cute but I hate NaruSaku lolwut. Hehe, honestly I don't see Gai really being with anyone either. I find his dynamic with Kakashi cute, though, even if it's only platonic.

Haha I think a lot of people predicted Gaara would die? I'm not sure about that - I wouldn't be despondent if he died or anything, but I don't think its particularly necessary. I'm crossing my fingers that Squad Three will get a battle, though! Finally see Lee in battle after a trillion years! <3 I have this haunting feeling that someone will die, though ;_;
