If Orochi did'nt bite Sasuke...
I have often wondered about this. I f he never got that curse seal from Oro.
Would he have stayed with team 7?
How would he have attained the level of power to take out Oro and Itachi like he eventually did?
Would he and Naruto eventually move in together?
I think Sasuke would not have become as strong as he is now, so he may have made the right choice. Even if it's over the top emo!
I reckon it would've just delayed the inevitable. Sasuke would've messed around in the village for a couple more years before something else forced him to re-evaluate his position and choose the road of the avenger.
Sasuke didn't have the power to take out Itachi. The guy was sick and he threw the fight. It's not like Sasuke would've needed all that much power. I think Itachi would've just adjusted the fight down to Sasuke's level.
He did get very pissy about losing all the time just before he left.
But if he stayed, who would have trained him to that level? Could Kakashi have trained him enough to be able to take on a sennin like he did (both Orochi and Itachi was sick) with Deidara. Ok, Deidara was suicidal but he was a very powerful oponent and got his ass handed to him.
I'm sure he could've found someone. Kakashi is good, but he isn't on the same level as the Sennin. Think about all the people we've met so far - like the Akatsuki guys. They had to come from somewhere. I'll bet there are a lot of shinobi out there that are pretty broken. I guess with enough effort, he could've found someone.
I don't know why people work with What-if's all the time.
You can't look at an option in the past and wonder what would have happened if it had happened differently because it is impossible to change a choice that had already been made. There is no alternate path that could have been taken, because no matter what Sasuke was going to get bitten.
Kishimoto decided it would work out this way, if it wasn't a curse seal set by Oro it would have happened in a similar fashion. That's just how he wanted the story to develop. It is possible that Kishi was considering taking the story in another direction at the time but he's the only one who could tell you, considering the static between Naruto and Sasuke i doubt he was thinking of any other course.
Sasuke won because his chakra nature (lightning) is superior to Deidara's (earth). If he didn't learned that chidori from Kakashi, he would've been blown when he was inside that Deidara's giant baloon. In other words, it's Kakashi that made him able to take Deidara, NOT Orochimaru!

It's fun to imagine what-ifs, it's interesting in seeing how different things could have been, its a part of fandom. Just look at western comics, and their "What if" series of comics involving people from the Hulk to the X-men.
