Hello, nice to meet you all, I'm Phoenix and I just discovered this community today.
Now I haven't managed to make it through all the archives, but has there ever been any discussions on Clamp's X/1999 or Tokyo Babylon?
If not, I might as well start the first one.
I ship the very canonical SeishirouxSubaru of Tokyo Babylon and X, a gay pairing and one of the most psychologically disturbed of Clamp as a whole. I also ship SubaruxFuuma, SubaruxHokuto, SubaruxKakyou and SubaruxSetsuka, showing that I'm not adverse to at least playing with other ideas when SeishirouxSubaru isn't quite what I need today. And I'm usually open to most other Subaru ships because they run a fairly good chance of having him in all of his angsty glory.
What I'm not so fond of, is SubaruxKamui. Maybe I'm looking in all the wrong places, but so far what I've seen is a lot of stories that marginalise or erase all of Seishirou and Fuuma's effects on the two of them, and claim that it's the only "fluffy pairing that Subaru and Kamui can have."
Unless you take the time to develop a relationship with all of the issues that those two have over a reasonably long period of time, my answer will always be, "Um, no."
If you want a fluffy pairing for Subaru, the only character who has the knowledge and gentle interactions with him minus the psychological issues is his twin sister. If you want a fluffy pairing for Kamui, he has a much broader range; he can be reasonably paired up with Kotori, Keiichi, Sorata, Yuzuriha and Fuuma before the events of X/1999 really come into full effect.
Write it if you like, I'm sure I'd like a well-done fic about them that acknowledges their issues, acknowledges that they will never fully heal from the scars that they bear, but I will not look at it as "Subaru's canonically fluffy pairing."
So I've just discovered a new OTP: Lance/Silver. I honestly didn't expect to like it, we don't even SEE their important talk in the games and I've always had kinda a love-hate relationship with Silver anyway, I never thought I'd actually ship him with anyone much less find an OTP for him. IT has a pretty small following but I'm okay with this, because a lot of it's awesome and actually tries to keep Silver in-character. THAT can be tough.
But even ships with only a small following have their bad spots. Folks, is it too much to ask that Clair not be turned into your personal Ron the Death Eater? Yes, Lance is very important to her. No, she and Silver probably wouldn't get along too well given their personalities being uncomfortably similar. But she is NOT going to hurt Silver or try to break him and Lance up for the evulz or so she can make out with him. Adoring her cousin =/= wanting to fuck his brains out. I swear, it's like the Priscilla haters in FE7 fandom all over again...well, to be fair Priscilla DID have those feelings for Raven but still.
tl;dr Clair may be difficult and a tsundere but that doesn't make her an evil bitch, so stop using that as a plot device in your fics, Mastershippers.
(And even if Clair apparently does have a crush on Lance in Special, that's still no excuse.)
((This isn't something I've acutally SEEN, but someone on DA mentioned Clair being portrayed like this in fanfiction a lot. So Lyssie refers to some random Pokemon shipping forums where this actually happens.))
As if the Hector/Eliwood and Eliwood/Lyn fanbrats weren't bad enough, I'm seeing far too many Eliwood/Fiora supporters lately. Too many fans are all too content to ignore canon in favor of their own twisted yaoi fantasies or incompatible het pairings, and I'm sick of it. So I made this in response to those ignorant fans.
edward elric from fma + madam red frm black butler r meant 2 b 2gether 4eva.
becos not only do they liek red but they also have teh same va. besides winry sux + ed does not lluv her. no she did not support teh brothers throughout their quest 2 return 2 their original bodies and teh manga is lyin 2 u. :( :( :(
lately everyones arguing over Lyn/Kent vs Kent/Fiora liek they're teh only two Kent pairings. WHAT ABOUT KENT/FARINA?!?! WHY DOES EVERYONE FORGET THEY SUPPORT AND HAVE AN ENDING?!
Kent/Farina is awesome cause they're totally opposites but they try to get along anyway and Farina even says she likes Kent at the end cause he's so nice even though his type makes her all uncomfortable. XD KENT/FIORA IS BORING, THEY'RE EXACTLY THE SAME AND THE SUPPORTS ARE BORING, Fiora belongs with SAIN!! And Lyn/Hector is the bestest Lyn ship so Lyn/Kent's no good either. FARINA IS THE PERFECT GIRL FOR KENT!!!
I'm just tired of ppl forgetting all about my poor little ship ;_;
Well, another Comiket has come and gone. I was hoping after 2009's Bayonetta doujinshi fiasco that there would be something worthwhile at 2010's.
FUCKING FAIL. Seriously, people jeered when her creator denounced the porn but if they read his statements properly they'd have seen it was because HE POINTED OUT IT WAS OOC CRAP BY PEOPLE WHO NEVER PLAYED THE GAME TRYING TO MAKE A QUICK BUCK OFF THOSE WHO DID. Instead of being a kickass, larger-than-life woman comfortable with her own power and sexuality shooting angels and flirting with just about everyone, once again there are just boring spoo-filled pages turning my heroine into a submissive bukkake-encrusted sexdoll.
Dare I say it, I think even Esme could write something better than the shit that got churned out.
...Actually, forget that. She'd probably make Bayonetta just as submissive but with less jizz. Worse, she's probably ship Bayonetta with that lovable dog-fucker Luka, who may be cute but is a total buttmonkey. Now I hope to god Esme can't handle action games and never touches it.
(Kudos to my friend G for not only surviving Comiket but also describing the WTFery of Otome Road and inspiring this! XD)
