Okay, but, Gaara and Naruto gardening together.
Naruto not being at all surprised to find out that Gaara is a master at cacti cultivating, but is terribly shocked to find out that he also spends a lot of time in the Suna greenhouse. (Naruto being surprised Suna even has a greenhouse.) Naruto taking Gaara around Konoha, and Gaara stopping every few feet to look at different plants, because they don’t have any of these types. Naruto visiting Ino every day to learn all about plants so that when Gaara comes next, he can tell him all of their names and bloom times and what they need to grow properly. Naruto saving up all his money from missions to surprise Gaara by taking him to the Yamanaka flower shop and buying Gaara all these potted plants to take home to Suna. Gaara paying him back in ramen, because think of how many times he would have had to turn away from Ichiraku’s. Gaara surprising Naruto with a special watering can when he comes to visit so that they can garden together (and god help you if you touch that watering can and your name is not Naruto Uzumaki). Gaara bringing his favorite cactus to Konoha to give to Naruto (and Naruto bursting out into tears because he’s just so emotional, especially when it comes to Gaara. Esepcially when it comes to Gaara being a squishy cutie pie).
Just, little loser jinchurikis and their gardening.

i really like that scene where gaara yells at naruto when he arrives to the battlefield because it’s such an spontaneous reaction?? it’s so real it’s not like “no this is a quiet character he can’t flinch with anything” and that’s something i’ve seen several times i love how natural it is for him he doesn’t think it twice he just “DAMN IT NARUTO”
This makes me want to go on a crazy ass adventure and have a carefree attitude towards my significant other.
If it was up to me,
I would’ve figure you out way before the year clocked out.
Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.
