This community was created to honor the OT3 of ShikaHinaSasu. Since many fan fiction and fan art communities do not cater to OT3 or have categories for pairings of three, I decided to create a home for fans who love Shikamaru, Hinata, and Sasuke. I hope this community will serve as a haven for theories, fan fiction, fan art, icons, AMVs, and other creations devoted to the ShikaHinaSasu OT3. With that in mind, Welcome to Coat_of_Arms -- II: Behind the Name: Coat of Arms comes from a strange combination of several vague implications made in the Naruto manga/anime.
Nara Shikamaru- In several points in the anime and manga- but more in the manga- little hints have been dropped as Shikamaru being a 'knight' of sorts. One such thing being the symbol of his clan appearing on the left sleeve of his shirt (thanks yeo-chan for the info). Knights typically bear their shields on their left sides. And on their shields is the seal, or coat of arms, of their family/clan/bloodline etc.
Hyuuga Hinata- Like Shikamaru there have been a few 'hints' given as to the Hyuuga clan's. Given the inward workings of the clan itself: the Main and Branch house division and the importance placed on heir/heiress- many Hinata fans have speculated of Hinata being a sort of 'princess'. Even more have taken the 'princess' theory a step further by comparing Hinata to well-known princesses in Asian mythology.
Uchiha Sasuke- Implications about Sasuke are more subtle than with Shikamaru or Hinata. However, much like Hinata, Sasuke's clan- the Uchiha- and Sasuke's ablities have been compared to heros in Asian mythology, these heros in question often joined with the aforementioned princesses.
Coat of Arm is a lump sum of all of these myths, implications, and fan speculation. Hinata- the princess- Sasuke- the hero/prince- and Shikamaru- the knight-. These three elements, even if they are speulcation, intirgued me as to what sort of a mixture these three could create. Hence the creation of Coat_of_Arms. -- III: What is an OT3? OT3- Only True Three- is a derived from OTP- only true pairing. Often OT3 is used to refer to a triangle pairing- where two people fight over the attention of one person.
But, sometimes OT3 is used as a short-hand form for threesome pairing- where all three characters are involved in a relationship or are attracted to one another-
At Coat_of_Arms there is not set definition of OT3. Artwork, Fiction, AMV, Icons etc, depicting ShikaHinaSasu as either a triangle or threesome pairing is on equal footing. -- IV: Rules 1: Please be respectful of other members 2: Offer helpful and encouragaing criticism if it's needed- ex: Great job on such and such, but you might want to spell and grammar check your work.
