Spoiler: moderate sexual content, consent issues, underage sex and kink (all fictional) I want to do a fic where Hinata discovers she likes to be dominant. I don't headcanon Naruto as being into submission exactly but I do think he's into Hinata's fighting style (hesitant until it isn't, then quick and brutal) and could very quickly get into her doing dominance displays; he wouldn't so much "submit" as make heart eyes at her while she bashed him over the head with her club and dragged him into her cave to be ravished. (Hilariously enough this is making me think of Padmé/Anakin. Except I do think Anakin is subby; he just also does the "*heart eyes* look at my girlfriend she's so badass I love her" thing.) Unfortunately I suspect Hinata would be ignorant about sex, having primarily gotten some lectures about protecting her virtue from peer pressure plus maybe a spot of accidental voyeurism, and Naruto would be educated mainly through whatever porn he encountered as an unsupervised orphan. (He might, like, know more about harems than about monogamy, or some other totally bizarre bias.) Anyone's guess as to whether either of them would have heard of a condom. So even though they care about each other a lot, I can see them just sort of... doing it first, and figuring out how to talk about it afterward. Which is not a great way to handle this stuff! But I still think it can be part of a reasonably healthy relationship, when they've both agreed that they want to be closer and aren't sure how. I wrote a chunk of this and got stuck on the part where Hinata is all "what have I done?" angsty and Naruto is trying to get through to her to say, hey, it's not that big a deal, can we talk about it is all. I think she'd eventually calm down enough to apologize for freaking out, then they'd establish coherent communication and go from there, maybe?
