A/N: I able to work this into my 30 Days of Jensen and Dean (That has gone on ENTIRELY too long.) This is fic number TWENTY-FOUR. The line, “Bring me some pie,” was requested by @percywinchester27. It was supposed to be fluff, but you can’t always get what you want. ;) This is just smutty, smut because all of the JibCon photos got me WORKED UP. (sigh) I also promised Ana so gyrating Jensen and this was the perfect opportunity for it. Not so much obviously drunk Jensen, but it’s hot either way. ;)
Unfortunately, I’m too much like her. With two differences: she’s stronger than me and she is pretty.
My parents discuss a lot. Like since ever… Since I can remember. IT make me weak because all i wanted was a close family. & now my family is broken. I have that kind of strange conection with fire. I’m always burning things and that makes me happy. I feel so alone sometimes. Most of my life. I always felt like that. Alone. Empty. Think about others. i don’t talk much as she in G1. I have a few friends but my paranoia tells me that they don’t love me, and so I end up losing them. Staying alone. always alone. with my paranoia and my panic and my sadness and all my mental disorders. My mom always tries to help me, but I don’t like to expose my feelings. i ending up with them inside me what makes me feel very badly. Since I was a little girl I see and hear things. that’s why I’m so weird. & it makes me really scared. I’ve had a depression. At two/three years ago. I think I already got over it. Maybe or maybe not. Honestly I’m not sure if I’m okay and happy. All I feel is a huge void. I have many thoughts together which makes me feel confused. I never know if I’m happy, sad, angry… I’m always empty. Effy, you know… She wants to be strong for everyone, but she is so fragile and sensitive. She falls a little everyday. she is broken inside. she just want to act like evrything is fine when everything is just fucked up. And so am I, too. I also fuck everything. Always. I have that strange energy that makes things become a shit when I come or stuff. I feel like shit. I feel useless. I feel empty. I feel like I’m nothing. & Eff always help me to feel better. So, i love her.
created a new pushup challenge! i’ve seen a lot of these before but almost all of them either started at like 50 pushups (which was too hard for me to start off at) or started at 3 and over 30 days worked up to 10 which was way too easy. for me this is a good balance between challenging myself but being able to finish all of the reps. hope this helps some of you that are on the same boat! :)
I mentioned something about this before in one of the previous questions about chemistry, but I wholeheartedly agree that pairings with baggage (not necessarily the most baggage, but baggage nonetheless) make for pairings with the best chemistry. Those hardships make it easier for those characters to appreciate what romance comes along. In terms of people able to relate to the material, I do also think that there’s something attractive about a couple facing issues and growing together.
That being said, there are a lot of pairings for the YGO fandom that may contain baggage.I realize that many of the characters have baggage in their own way - but I’m referring to baggage dealing with issues of a serious nature. Before anyone gets up in a huff, I am not marginalizing or downplaying any of the characters and their struggles. However, I think it’s safe to say that there is a difference between characteristic struggles that often come with maturing and growing and struggles that, although they may provide similar lessons in the end, are being produced by situations that no person should have to struggle through.
I’ve done all the disclaiming that I can do at this point. You either agree with me or you don’t.
In any case, to my list of baggage bringers. I would further add that I’m not delving into tertiary characters here - this list is off of the top of my head:
Yami, Jounouchi, Otogi (if we’re going with the manga), Marik, Rishid, Ryou, Pegasus, TKB (Thief King Bakura), The Orichalcos Gang (Amelda, Valon, Rafael, Dartz), and begrudgingly Seto.
For most of the other characters, baggage is has to be exaggerated and speculated upon in fanfics to achieve the desired effect. The above characters are confirmed in canon to have gone through some heavy shit - and therefore, baggage. That being said, there’s nothing wrong with adding detail to the backstory of a character (especially in a case where suffering was indicated but not expounded upon), but I think it’s important to make the distinction.
With the list above, I would go with pairings that feature Seto, Ryou and Marik to contend for the above title. I’m sorry that I’m not answering the question clearly enough by indicating a specific pairing, but it’s really hard. The fact of the matter is that these characters have gone through traumatizing life experiences (and, in Seto’s case, the result of his character and personality in action is more terrifying than watching the process of it being shaped - at least with what was presented in canon).
*Quick note: Yami Bakura is not on the list of baggage because he doesn’t have any. He’s the corrupted remains of TKB’s soul and his own goal is to destroy/rule over the world. There’s no room for baggage in that. It’s a very simple objective and the most his issues could amount to is perhaps an insecurity in terms of failing - however, having seen/read the series I think it’s safe to say that Bakura’s not afraid of anything. He simply becomes disappointed and then makes another attempt.
I realize that Ryou and Marik are go-to characters for this sort of question, but I think that Seto qualifies for this honor as well. The fact of the matter is that, there are so many layers to Seto Kaiba - his lifestyle, his choices, his lack of emotional relativity - that in order to even pair him with another person it takes work to chip away at that. I realize that there are a lot of writers out there who have no problems pairing him up in a very dysfunctional fashion, with his sexual attraction to others being the result a problem or disorder that has to be worked through, or expressed only at focal points because of a problem or disorder. And I’m fine with that, if it’s made to work well.
However, to pair him with another in the same fashion that the fandom tends to with the other characters there’s a sort of barrier that must be broken in terms of how Seto Kaiba is viewed. Many readers who have been in the fandom for a long time are willing to merely accept him being written as a more emotional character because that’s ultimately what they want from him; others have simply read so many stories where he was reserved but still easy to relate to, and after reading stories like this so often it’s difficult to imagine him as anything else. Something akin to the Draco Malfoy in Leather Pants situation, if you will. A few, a rare few, have actually found fanfiction that worked long and hard enough to develop Seto Kaiba into a character with those properties, and once presented with that miraculously plausible outlet for his character, grasped the “repaired” version of him and never looked back.
I wouldn’t either, if I had that opportunity.
This something that I’ve always struggled with. I’ve never found a story like that above, and I find it difficult to imagine Seto Kaiba in a situation where he’s emotionally developed enough to react properly in a relationship. The way I see it, relationships for Seto Kaiba are currency. That being the case, the only reason why he would be in one with another person is in exchange for something valuable to him. I can see where it’s possible for him to slowly peel away a few of the hardened layers of his personality and be a little, tiny bit softer than usual - but it’s not enough for me to buy him being content in a relationship for me.
I daresay that his character is not even emotionally constipated - after more than a decade of being in this fandom, I could more easily argue that Seto Kaiba is simply a combination of lacking expressive emotions (which is not the same as not being able to express emotions) and being asexual. Mind you that all of this would be occurring outside of his well-known range of issues (father issues, abandonment issues because of his parents, possessiveness with Mokuba, lacking proper outlets for work-related stress when it exists, issue with competition, etc.).
A character that is able to make that sort of impression deserves to be on the baggage list when it comes to relationships. Even if we establish that sometimes people just don’t express themselves the way other people do, and even if we establish that sometimes people just don’t want to have sex with other people - there’s still a ridiculous amount of obstacles here for any person who would push hard enough to get Seto to agree to be in a relationship with them.
So, to repeat myself: Any pairing involving either of the three of them (or two of the three of them – I don’t even think that all three of them together is possible, really). The three of them together would be overwhelming, so I guess I will hesitantly name their collective ship as the victor: Doubtshipping (Ryou x Seto x Marik).
