What OTPs in your fandom(s) do you just not get?
All the incestuous ships, or the abusive ones between the a protagonist and an antagonist. It’s possible to truly hate someone, without sexual tension or toxic tomantic/sexual feelings for them. My main example is the ones with Ardyn in FFXV. No one in the main characters could have a normal relationship with him. He’s a vilain, he’s a bad guy, and he hurts them during all the game. Same for FFVI’s Kefka. It’s a huge no for me.
Do you have a NoTP in your fandom? Are they a popular OTP?
Too popular for my taste ? LOL Yes I do have NOTPs in my fandom, and I block the tag on Tumblr so I don’t see them because they annoy me too much. Some of them are popular and others aren’t. These include the incestuous ones and the protagonist/antagonist ones, but I have also some ships I don’t understand, like when two people have known each other for a very short period of time (a few days or 2-3 months, you can’t really fall in love that quickly).
Is there anything you used to like but can’t stand now?
No, I tend to keep my ships :P
Unpopular opinion about your fandom?
I think Tumblr is a website for positivity, so when you don’t like a character, a ship or a video game please… keep your opinion for yourself. It’s just so annoying sometimes to read the tags or the comments on my own edits because people complain about the ship or the character -.-
8. Say something genuinely nice about a character who isn’t one of your faves (chars you’re neutral on are fair game, as are chars you dislike)
Haninn was only in it for the drama. How many characters can you say that truthfully about? Amazing.
9. Name three things you wish you saw more or in your main fandom (or a fandom of choice)
More meta jokes
Sassy airship being a total high-class bitch
17. Just ramble about something fan-related, go go go (prompts optional but encouraged)
Are you sure you’re ready for this because I don’t think you’re ready for this because I’m not even ready for this because holy shit I have so many things to talk about. First of all, all the headcanons? Quality shit right there. Memes? Good shit. Actors? Magnus might have some issues he needs to work out with a therapist but he and Stefan are simply the nicest people you can meet and Stefan spends his free time playing with his cat and dragging Donald Trump into the dirt what else could you ask for from Robbie Rotten? Also Julianna and Chloe are so nice. Julianna recently graduated college and Chloe, not sure what she’s doing with her life but she is still in touch with everyone because she did LazyTown Forever. Secondly, the people in the fandom. Not all of them are the best, but most of them that I’ve met have been super great and they all produce quality art and posts and all just talk to each other and all worry about Stefan because he’s the man who started the Renaissance. The fanfictions. So much work is put into them and although not all of them interest me I know that they’re all doing the best that they can and I just fucking love all the work that’s put into the fanart and fanfics and fanvids and the series has technically been going on since 1991 and it ended in 2014. That’s 23 years. 23 years of work. 23 years of a dream Magnus had because he wanted to make the world a healthier place and he did it, albeit being mildly creepy and ominous in interviews and it became the world’s most popular and expensive children’s television TV show and now I can’t even fucking hear certain words without wanting to burst out into song this is all your fault Scheving I swear to god. And he did all of this and he worked so hard and he never gave up and he succeeded beyond his wildest dreams and if he can become a 3-time aerobics champion off of a bet and make the world’s most popular children’s TV show off of some crappy children’s book he wrote in 1991 then he should just fucking run for president with Michelle Obama as his VP because then we’d get 23 years of good fortune and all will be well again. Magnus Scheving for president 2020. Viva la Spob.
Uta no Prince-sama Song Starters: Hijirikawa Masato ver.
“Ah, in moments like this, you don’t even know such feelings as these.” “That’s right, I was born to protect the chance of meeting you!” “That’s why I want to be your knight, tonight.” “There’s nothing I can do to stop it.” “I want only you to listen!” “The miracle of our meeting that day, my destiny…“
“Your dream has become both our dream!” “Forever I want you…” “You’re my sunshine!” “No matter what, I’ll protect you to the end!” “You’re cheerful smile is changing me.” “Whatever the world becomes, as long as you’re here, I’ll be fine with you!” “Don’t look at me like that…” “I might be sucked in by those lovely eyes!” “I’m in love with you.” “You’re my everything!” “If we’re together, I can become strong!” “Always, I want to remain next to you!” “That’s right, even if we’re born again, I’ll find you again!”
Knocking on the Mind
“Wipe your tears.” “Flowers are always looking up.” “No matter when, I don’t want to forget it.” “That smile is my sun.” “I’m being filled with these feelings.” “I want you to let me stay by your side.” “Let’s share what we believe.” “I wonder why?” “Why do people try to express themselves with restricted words that aren’t enough?”
“There’s only kindness, but I’m still a lost man.” "‘For another’s sake,’ such an excuse…” “I’m already facing towards my true destiny directly!” “Hey, I still want to see you!“ “My voice, my fingers, my heart have started singing.” “I want to convey these feelings!” “If I could, I’d wish for a never-ending future!” “Love and dreams… When weighed, which one is more important?” “I won’t lose to anyone!” “I don’t care how it looks! This passion is not a lie!” “Hey, can you hear it now?” “I don’t care about anyone else! I want you to look at me!”
"Your sound suddenly resonated within my impermanent heart.” “Love-colored cherry blossoms, ah… They’re blowing about like a storm of petals.” “An overly abused love song is a man’s way of showing he’s in love with you.” “If I had become a adult without shame, I’d tell you how I truly feel.” “Love-colored cherry blossoms seem…reminiscent of that day long past.” “A blind love song is a man’s way of showing he’s in love with you.” “A love song to the heavens is a man’s way of showing he’s in love with you.”
"How long had it been?” “Since I first heard your song on that unforgettable day, am I able to truly fall in love?” “These pure feelings within my heart, I believe in them.” “Without forgetting what we felt like at zero, let’s continue running forward.” “Our journey shall never end.” “Could I sing your song?” “All your sorrow, tears, and experiences will guide you towards your smile. So gather them all in your arms and hold them close.”
"Since it’s so painful, shall we draw closer?” “My determination is the reason I move forward.” “Seething within myself, there is a flame of passion.” “A flame burns that will never be shaken, slowly, gently within my heart.” “Each and every moment, this life of mine shines radiantly.” “Surely, there is nothing we can do alone.” “I’m not alone.” “Each time I see your smiling face, it pierces my heart.” “How many times has it been?” "Will I be able to love you well?”
“I can’t convey what I want to tell you…” “I only pray for your happiness.” “If it is allowed then can you always let me be by your side?” “I vowed to cherish you more than anyone else.” “A world that glows vividly in front of you; Tears, pain, and joy shine brighter than anything else.” “I’ll embrace everything so I can protect it.” “I love you is my eternal promise that ties me to you.” “I swear on my life I will love you.”
Oh, Pidge. Like from the first second she was on the screen I was in love. She’s everything that screams “my type” in a fictional character and then was just so compelling and so nuanced even beyond that. Still my solid favorite
02. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now:
Honestly I could not have predicted how much I adored Hunk? I love him so sincerely and it was not something I expected going into it at all. But I just want better for him and really enjoy his presence when the writers aren’t being lazy with him.
03. The character I’d slap:
Mm. Before recently I would have said no one but there’s something joyously slappable about Lotor.
04. Who are my 3 favorite characters.
Pidge, Allura, Shiro. Like I don’t even have to think about it. Hunk is a very close fourth though.
Rules: tag the person who tagged you, always post the rules, answer the questions, and add the date
What are your five most popular works? What are your five least popular works? Are you surprised? Why? Optional: If you want to calculate this, what are your works’ average number of notes? Today’s date, so you can see how your results might change if you do this again in a year.
Tag six people to do this next!
Only do this if you want to! I was tagged(ish^.~lol) by @halfblood-fiend, who created this meme! Writers and artists are welcome to do this, and people who are both can fill it out however they like.
(Sidenote, I keep independent count of my notes. I take out my own reblogs and pronbots. because of the tags I use, I get like. ^.^; a lot of pronblog bot$. Use whatever counts you want, overall notes or a counted number! Up to you!)
I grabbed these numbers a while back because I was interested in what was going on, so I’m not surprised by what’s done well and what hasn’t. What was useful for me was adding the ratings - that’s a pretty stark split. It makes sense, though. Of my bottom five, 2, 3, and 4 mainly feature either Pangara or Solas, alone and thinking about their relationship from a distance. Lack of interaction in a piece makes engagement with the reader difficult too; I know I have a lot to learn about writing a good piece that explores some sort of dreamy, esoteric inaction and still keeps the reader’s attention.
The pieces that I consider to be the most experimental are also in the bottom five. “the future from a winter moon” absolutely falls into that category. It’s told entirely from the perspective of a very inebriated half-dreaming person. It’s not easy to follow. A dog dies in “the road of evening.” “the set of the table” is mostly about Pangara’s friendship with Master Dennet, and the narrative jumps around a lot in time in a short fill. That’s hard for readers, and I didn’t do a lot of work to make the timeline clear. “planting” is about a panic attack, so there’s an audience that will understandably steer clear of that content.
But the lack of interest in “blood proofs” has always surprised me. “blood proofs” is my mage party story, and I think it’s one of my best works. When I wrote it I felt like I’d hit on a good and interesting representation of Solas, Dorian, and Vivienne interacting. And when I think of like, what people might think of when they think of my writing, I automatically assume they associate me with this piece even though all of six people have read it lol. I clearly have this over-inflated sense of ego about my writing where I’m just like, ‘oh yes, my personal favorite, that is My Brand.’
I was glad at least two of my D/s play fics made it to the top five. Thank!
Honestly, I have RARELY reblogged most of these, so if something has succeeded it’s been out of pure luck. I know that’s on me. @elfsplaining reblogged the shit out of “drown” and always said something so freaking nice about it and I directly attribute its top spot to that wonderful attention. ^.^ Even if part of me does wish my most-seen work featured my own Lavellan, ah well. I need to give my love more time.
I feel really lucky in that I’ve got a solid chance of some sort of interaction on whatever I post. I’ve posted poetry before, and at least one person liked it. That was really nice. And if something ever did sit at 0 notes for any length of time, I know I could desperately shove it in the faces of like at least five people and get instant pity notes, lol, thank you my Lavs.
Favorite character: evil question!!! Iris, Musashi/Jessie, Shootie/Trip, Harley, N, Manon/Mairin, PRACTICALLY EVERY ROCKET (especially fond of Mondo, Bashou/Hun, and Buson/Attila), the Tobari/Veilstone brothers…?!?!? Soft spot remaining for the Subway Masters.
Least Favorite character: … everybody’s so cute??? I don’t think I really– I mean, obviously, there’s terrible folks like Kojiro’s parents, but I don’t hate seeing them on-screen, even when they show no real redeeming qualities, simply because they offer us more backstory or create interesting conflict in the plot! The evil bosses are especially great! Ghetsis and especially Fleurdelys/Lysandre were absolutely vile, Sakaki/Giovanni’s so interesting, especially his role as the only truly undefeated boss and his growing presence in recent years is really great and well-utilized!
5 Favorite ships (canon or non-canon): non-canon or only one-sidedly canon so far– Rocketshipping, Wishfulshipping, Marissonshipping, and Flarebustershipping [practically a crack ship, that last one]! Canon ships: Aloeverashipping [<3333333333], MegaAurashipping [canon self-proclaimed soulmates, they count], and Contestshipping [pretty much canon, yeah?]. <—and here, we see, I have an armada and can’t abide by those restrictions.
Character I find most attractive: Maybe not quite attractive, but appealing! Musashi’s gorgeous! I wanted to emulate her a lot as a kid, pffft, I wanted her pretty red hair… Shirona/Cynthia is #goals, I love her long black coat and its feathery/(faux, surely) fur trim and the sheer elegance of it all! Her hair’s so loooong and thick too, I love long hair. Also, Saori/Soledad! I love her red glove/red boots/orange coat combo and that looong, flowing pink hair! She has such a good design and I love her confident, older sister-like air. Langley/Georgia’s also got a really unique design and I love how those colours I’d never think of throwing together work so well in her design??? And her eyes!! They’re a lot like the Rockets and I love drawing them. Iris has my favourite design to draw! The baby pink and cream combination is really sweet and her hair is so fun to play with! The Subway Masters also have really great designs, love the monochromatic theme and uniforms. Sideburns! Shootie’s three layers are a pain, but he’s also really fun to draw, his eyes are really unique! His hair’s so flowy too, it’s fun to play with too, just in a different way from Iris’! It’s also just plain fun to draw tsun expressions, okay.
Character I would marry: … fiiiine, Kosaburo/Butch.
Character I would be best friends with: Haruka, we could eat so much at so many different places. Saori/Soledad and just admire her all the time and hope some of her infinite coolness rubs off on me– and go do Pokemon Contests!! Langley, and hope I can absorb some of that confidence too!
A random thought: I really overdid that answer back there… oh, um, I really, really hope we get to see Iris in SuMo someday soon!
An unpopular opinion: I dislike XY, but I do like Serena a lot and I liked how her storyline resolved! She’s a sweet character and I love her design(s).
My canon OTP: Rocketshipping is practically one-sided canon by now (Kojiroooo ;_;) what with his “eternal partner” line and his classic romantic “I want my beloved to be happy (even if it’s with someone else)” deal in the Dr. White episode.
Non-canon OTP: Wishfulshipping is so cute, it makes me so happy, I miss it a lot, when the tag was still active, I remember I’d scroll through it to feel better too… it’s so comforting! It’s like Rocketshipping lite, very mild and sweet, more harmonic and, y’know, lacking all the villainy and caustic qualities. ^^;;;
Most bad*** character: SHI-RO-NA (although Iris definitely has her moment– hello, the stolen blimp in the movie?!). Stuff like when she leaped over that… jeep-y thing and when she had her Garchomp stick its spikes a hair away from Jupiter’s throat while restraining her was just AMAZING.
Pairing I am not a fan of: I don’t really hate any of them? Even the ones I’m ambivalent about, I could enjoy in good fanwork or in a cute scene! I’m pretty relaxed! I had a brief time where Sommeliershipping really grated on me, PFFT.
Character I feel the writers screwed up (in one way or another): I don’t have such strong feelings about that, but– I felt like Serena could have had a bit more to do, a little bit more focus at least, during the first year or so of XY’s run so it wasn’t so stagnant… but ultimately, she got good development (after a long, long, long time…) and very satisfying moments, like working up the courage to stand up to her mother for her right to decide her future and confessing to Satoshi.
Favourite friendship: oh noooo, too many!! But I adore the BW! trio, Satoshi/Ash+Hikari/Dawn, the TRio the most! ;3; Iris+Shobu/Shannon are really sweet too! Langley/Georgia has really touching moments with her rival and even some of the others like Bell/Bianca too (that fond, only slightly exasperated smile when she watched Bell run off is just so sweet to me)…
