“You were you,
and I was I;
we were two
before our time.
I was yours
before I knew,
and you have always
been mine too.”
taurus + virgo
“I still search for you in crowds,
in empty fields and soaring clouds.
In city lights and passing cars,
on winding roads and wishing stars.”
cancer + pisces
“I don’t know how you are so familiar to me—or why it feels less
like I am getting to know you and more as though I am remembering who
you are. How every smile, every whisper brings me closer to the
impossible conclusion that I have known you before, I have loved you
before—in another time, a different place, some other existence.”
libra + leo
“Letting you go – There is a particular kind of suffering to be
experienced when you love something greater than yourself. A tender
sacrifice. Like the pained silence felt in the lost song of a mermaid;
or the bent and broken feet of a dancing ballerina. It is in every
considered step I am taking in the opposite direction of you.”
scorpio + capricorn
“One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel
more connected to this stranger than anyone else–closer to them than
your closest family. Perhaps this person carries within them an
angel–one sent to you for some higher purpose; to teach you an
important lesson or to keep you safe during a perilous time. What you
must do is trust in them–even if they come hand in hand with pain or
suffering–the reason for their presence will become clear in due time.”
aquarius + gemini
“Souls" When two souls fall in love, there is nothing else but the yearning to be close to the other. The presence that is felt through a hand held, a voice heard, or a smile seen.
Souls do not have calendars or clocks, nor do they understand the notion of time or distance. They only know it feels right to be with one another.
This is the reason why you miss someone so much when they are not there— even if they are only in the very next room. Your soul only feels their absence— it doesn’t realize the separation is temporary.”
I was looking for girl love pairing from persona 5, I can’t match the main girls with each other. But then I realised, YES! THIS! WORKS!! Ann Takamaki and Shiho Suzui =^=Nanko Spent a whole day on this.
In Saiyuki, especially on merchandise, you might often see numbers and one of four colors associated with our dudes.
For instance, this purple pouch with the number 3 on it.
It seems minimalist, there’s no character on it. But it represents Sanzo, our hot headed priest. There’s a couple ways to identify this;
Sanzo is represented with purple
Goku is represented with yellow/orange
Gojyo is represented with red
Hakkai is represented with green
Minekura even did a series of postcards featuring the guys with their respected color awhile back.
Another popular way to identify the guys is with numbers. Their names are linked to numbers, so we have
Sanzo - 3 (San = 3)
Gojyo - 5 (Go = 5)
Hakkai - 8 (Hachi = 8)
Goku - 9 (Ku = 9)
So if somebody were to say ‘I enjoy reading 353 fics’, it means they like reading stories with Sanzo and Gojyo.
Not all pairings are fully numbered, for instance 10K is commonly used for Tenpou and Kenren.
Other times pairings are done the old school way, like Kougaiji x Yaone.
Some popular pairings that come up are:
393 - Sanzo and Goku
585 - Gojyo and Hakkai
10K - Tenpou and Kenren
Other well known pairings
Ukoku x Koumyou
Kougaiji x Yaone
Mixtures of the main four in different pairings
This is not an extensive list, and I have seen many different pairings over the years! Please note, this does not mean stories or art with these numbers/pairings are always sexual in nature. There are many fics that show the characters in domestic relationships sharing in intimate moments without having anything sexual happen.
I also want to ask that everyone be respectful of people’s OTPs and NOTPs. It doesn’t hurt anyone if someone likes a certain ship. This is a fandom and people are allowed to like what they like, or dislike what they dislike. Just be civil and don’t force your ideals in the faces of others, please!
I hope this brief explanation helps shed some light!
Okay well, I don’t like to pick favourites, but I do have one, but I’ll list a few as well…
Oh and this may contain spoilers for some people, I don’t know, just a warning though.
Inuyasha x Kagome. These two, are of course, my OTP. They are a perfect pair. Kagome, unlike Kikyo, never wanted Inuyasha to change for her. She believed he was perfect just the way he is… And he really is. Kagome’s really fucking lucky.
Fuck you Kouga.
When they finally kissed!!!
Sango x Miroku. They are, of course, an odd couple. But they are also perfect for each other, and Sango keeps Miroku in line. Haha. But really though, they made adorable babies.
Sesshoumaru x Kagura. I really wish Kagura hadn’t of died. They would have been perfect… She really cared for him, and at her last moment, you saw he cared for her too.
NOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I hated this…
Sesshoumaru x Rin (GROWN UP OF COURSE). Of course Rumiko left this up to the viewers to decide… It’s pretty split between the fandom that they’re either going to be future partners, or if Sesshoumaru was more of a father figure to her. I’m torn on it too… But since Kagura died… They’d make an awesome couple. OF COURSE WHEN SHE’S AN ADULT AND CHOOSES TO BE BY HIS SIDE!
Rin x Kohaku (if Kagura hadn’t died). If Kagura hadn’t of died, this would have been perfect.
Kyoukai No Rinne Pairing
Rinne x Sakura. Of course I ship them, that’s like asking me if I ship Inuyasha and Kagome…
Gotta admit… That ^ was adorable.
Ranma ½ Pairing
Ranma x Akane. Two, in denial, love birds. Such a sweet and funny pair.
Shakugan No Shana Pairing
Shana x Yuji. They’re perfect, I didn’t care for Yoshida at all.
Vampire Knight Pairing
Kaname x Yuki. Yes they’re related, but they’re vampires. So shush.
Although I’m not opposed to Zero x Yuki, I just preferKaname.
Naruto x Hinata. ALWAYS AND FOREVER. SUCK IT NARUTO x SAKURA SHIPPERS! WE WERE RIGHT! … Coughs Sorry, I lost my cool there… Let’s continue.
Temari x Shikamaru. Aren’t they just perfect together???
I’ve always thought about this picture and I wanted to share my thoughts on it as it’s very telling about the guys’ personalities when it comes to affection.
Sanzo; he has kisses all over, but not near his mouth. He probably wouldn’t allow anyone to come near his lips. He’s the most aggravated, as to be expected since Sanzo is more than likely the least interested in sex and is possibly an asexual. Interestingly enough he has kisses in his hair, possibly because it’s so alluring? Exotic?
Goku; he’s pretty much uninterested. He doesn’t look excited, shy, or anything. Maybe he just wasn’t into the folks who were kissing him, or he’s similar to Sanzo but to a lesser degree. He’s not really interested in intimacy judging from this picture. However it’s very cute that he got a smooch on his button nose. He’s the only one out of the 4 to not get a kiss to the neck.
Gojyo; as expected he’s loving this and making sure to show off the kisses. He’s the only one to have a kiss near the lips. He’s grinning with an expression that says he’s ready for more attention. Gojyo’s always been into receiving affection so it’s no surprise that, unlike the others, he’s soaking all this up.
Hakkai; he’s smiling but it’s very shy or embarrassed. He’s probably okay with intimacy but would be the type to want to get to know someone first. Unlike Gojyo he’s not able to handle sudden affection the way he can. He takes it in good stride though and like Gojyo and Sanzo got a very intimate kiss to the neck.
It’s always been funny to me how I can have shipping preferences for this series, but at the same time I can absolutely agree that some characters canonically could not be shipped together because of their personalities or circumstances. That’s the beauty of fandom, you got your canonical ships and your fan ships, OTPs, NOTPs, BROTPs.
Anyway! This was just a quick analysis on a picture that I’m more than likely looking too much into!
