Naruto: Deidara Lives by SractheNinja Naruto: Deidara Lives by SractheNinja
WARNING: VERY LARGE FILE AHEAD

Well folks, here it is. This is what I've been working on for days and days now. Thought this up a few weeks ago after I saw Sasuke resting up in that inn. My mind started working up ideas. I could scarcely believe the things Sasuke's been capable of lately. It's so utterly preposterous, I couldn't sit back and do nothing. I had to call this out into the open. And who better to do it with than everyone's favorite art ninja, Akatsuki no Deidara. But it wasn't just to call out Sasuke. It's also for me to argue that Deidara is not dead. Of course realistically, he's not dead for different reasons than those here, but either way, he'll live FOREVER.

I didn't realize at the opening, just how long this would be. If I had, I might have done it in comic pages. However, I didn't realize until it was a bit too late, just how large it would be. As I said in the preview for this, the comic made me realize there's only so big you can make a picture in Photoshop. 50 inches apparently. But I lowered the resolution, since it was high already, and it worked out fine.

For this comic, I was sort of going for the feel of another "Sasuke Fails At Pokemon" sort of thing. It's not hard, since Sasuke's become so ridiculous. I'll explain, because it's just my way.

Sasuke's resting in the room at the inn. He's sent Suigetsu, Karin, and Juugo out, for one reason or another. This doesn't really come into play in the comic, so I didn't flesh it out. All of a sudden, there's a knock on the door. Sasuke opens his eyes and looks, to it. As it opens, a hand with purple fingernail polish grips in, and Sasuke is shocked to see Deidara sliding the door open, looking as well as he ever did. Sasuke can't believe this and, in shock, questions how it could have possibly happened. Deidara then flashes back to the happenings of the end of their battle and explains just how ridiculous Sasuke's "escape" was. Sasuke, persisting on his question, bring the conversation back to Deidara's survival. Deidara, replies by reasoning that since Sasuke can perform impossible actions, there should be no sense of logic to limit any other characters from doing the same. He even uses the seemingly ridiculous example that Tobi could be the Akatsuki Leader. In short, if Sasuke can do everything he did with no chakra in microseconds, then surely Deidara could survive his own self-destruction. They both state eachother down for a moment. Then Deidara ponders just where Tobi could be, while Sasuke yells at Deidara in frustration. Meanwhile, somewhere in the distance, Tobi feels something, and wonders if it could possibly be his sempai.

I know there's a lot of Sasuke bashing in this one, but I'm just so frustrated with him lately. And Deidara-sempai is a wonderful vessel for venting that frustration.

I really like how most of the panels turned out. I'm not entirely sure what else to say. I'm a little tired from working on this pretty hardcore for days. So if I think of some more things to say later, I'll come back and say them. Other than that, I wish you all enjoy my little comic.

No. Moral of the story is that KISHIMOTO fails at Pokemon. :giggle:

I always interpreted the "Great Snake Escape" in either of two different ways.

1. Sasuke did something completely mundane like hiding underground a la Tobi or Zetsu to escape the explosion, and then made up the snake story so he looked cooler.

2. Sasuke panicked and performed the ninja equivalent of mashing buttons in a fighting game, throwing a bunch of hand seals together and hoping something useful happened.  Whatever he did worked, and he made up the snake story to avoid looking like an idiot.

Yes yes yes, I agree with you completely. If you think about it really demonstrates just how pathetic the storytelling and the character is because he needed such a ridiculous ass pull to save himself. Now I love the series, I do, but moments like these make really wonder why I still bother to watch it.....
