Three Ships I Don't Like

10) Edward/Alphonse (FMA)

12) Jacky/not!Jaimey (Bloody Jack Series)

Two Ships I Am Curious About, But Don't Actually Ship

13) Gaara/Hinata (Naruto)
14) Racheal/Marco (Animorphs)


1.) Why do you dislike #11 so much? (Zuko/Katara)
Oh God… First of all, I just like Aang better than Zuko so I care more about whom he likes. Second, I actually wouldn’t mind so much if it wasn’t for this fucking fandom. What the hell? Seriously, I don’t know how a crack pairing got so popular but even my best friends are into it and…yeah. Plus, this has as much chance as Jar Jar Binks/Leia. Less actually. Anyway, it’s between the fans, the Aang-bashing, the fanart, the no likey between characters, and the fact that KATAANG/MAIKO is canon! W00t!!

2.) Who is someone you know that ships #13? (Gaara/Hinata)
…no one personally. ;_; I am aware of the fandom though. The fanart is very pretty.

 
3.) What would be your ideal scenario for couple #3 (even if the show isn't on the air anymore)? (Sango/Miroku)
Wow…almost all my ideal scenes are canon.   Miroku proposing, Sango groping Miroku, the fact that Miroku sacrafices more and more of his life to save Sango and Kohaku, Sango destroying Hiraikotsu for Miroku, Miroku drinking fuckicg poison so he wouldn’t feel any more pain from the shouki wounds and could keep the Kazaana open longer for her, Sango choosing Miroku over Hiraikotsu, Sango kissing an unconcious Miroku, Miroku telling her after they defeat Naraku he intends to marry her immediately, and the fact that as of chapter 535, he intends to open the Kazaana (which may be the very last time he will ever use it without dying) to save her…I suppose my ideal scene is that they both survive and spend very long lives with each other. Please, Rumiko. I know only the bad guys die in your manga but these last few chapters have been…intense, to say the least. It is also heavily implied they won’t live long enough to be married with Miroku only having days to live. Yeah, screw the porn, I just want these two to live long enough to get rid of the Kazaana. The scars can stay, as they’re hot.
Look, Inuyasha is corney, drawn out, over dramatic, repittative, and cheesy, but these two are damn good characters and will always be one of my favorite pairings ever.

 4.) Which is your favorite episode for #1? Try to pick just one. (Aang/Katara)
I can’t pick one, but I narrowed it down to two. The Desert and The Headband. The Desert showed how powerfully Aang needs Katara to be his anchor to sanity and reality while also showing Katara’s ability to calm him down with a simple touch and look. The Headband was a lot more lighthearted and basically focused on Katara’s romantic feelings for Aang. The dance scene was so OTP. (Also, their canon kiss was just too awesome for words but the entire episode was not.)

5.) How long have you been following couple #6?(Tom/Hester)
Since I started reading the first book, third chapter, 19th page. All they way to their deaths at the end of the last book. D:

6.) What's the story with #8? What made you stop liking them/caring? (Ronald/Hermione)
I moved of from Harry Potter in general. Plus, good fic/art is hard to find of these two in the fandom and I just can’t be bothered anymore. I still like them though and did enjoy the last book.

7.) Which ship do you prefer - #2 or #4?
Crap…as of now, probably Gil/Agatha but  only Because Ling and Ran Fan have been absent for a while now. Also, Gil is just too funny with Agatha that his meeting of his half-possesed fiance’ will be absolutely hilarious and sweet. Especially when he learns about Tarvek.

8.) You have the power to make one ship non existent. Choose from #10 or #12.
ANOTHER TOUGHIE!!! Argh, so hard to decide. But I guess Edward and Alphonse. Ed/Al infuriates me with the white hot intensity of a million burning suns going supernova. Why do I hate this so much?
1)      Ed and Al have been through a lot. A LOT!! They are very close and would die for each other. Close as brothers can be. Their love for each other trancends romantic love and is purely platonic. To make them have buttseks with each other is not only wrong on so many levels, but makes their love seem more like purely sexual and kind of pisses on the bond they share.
Al lost his mother and his body. Ed lost his mother, brother, and arm and leg. For them to start to have feelings with each other might push them into crazy land and truamatize them for life.
2)      They are brothers and I don’t support sibling/sibling parent/child incest as I think it crosses the line. Cousin/Cousin is sorta okay. I have to really love the characters for it to appeal.
3)      Ed loves Winry. End of discussion. Don’t hate on Winry just because she comes between your Elricest wet dreams fangirls. Manga!Winry is made of win.
4)      In fanfiction, the OOC is so appaling I gag. Literally cannot finish some perfectly well written fics because of this disgusting bastardzation of Ed and Al’s characters.
5)      Al’s body is made of armor. It just won’t work.
6)      Most fanart/fanfics have Al with a human body again. Magically or they go back in time. Which is NASTY because that would make Al like, SEVEN!! Or younger. I’m pretty sure Ed didn’t buttrape his brother when they hadn’t even reached puberty yet.
7)      Just because Ed has long hair and Al is a little sensitive doesn’t mean they’re gay. Get over it.
 
Anyway, I think that’s about it. If you like Elricest and I have offended you, I don’t care. Even if we know each other, I reeeeeally hate this pairing and if you like it, tough. Go masterbate to an Elricsest fanfic or something.
 
9.) What interests you about #14? (Racheal/Marco)
Because my absolute favorite character (Aximili) didn’t have a love interest, my other two favorites, Marco and Racheal probably would have made a cute couple. Marco did show signs of being attracted to her (in an intimidated, unrequited kind of way), and Racheal’s chemistry with him was pretty easygoing and mellow. Marco got her to relax when she got too pumped up. I always thought these two would have hooked up if Tobias weren’t around.   Alas, I like Tobias so it’s not like I wasn’t dissappointed she didn’t date Marco, but it would have been nice if the nerdy, comic relief character got with the Action Girl. Of course, the romance wasn’t a real focal point of the Animorphs books but there was enough going on that I didn’t even care. I also heard all of my favorite characters except Marco died/committed suicide and he turned into a real jerkass so it’s a whatever for me.

10.) When did you stop liking #7? (Sheridan/Delenn)
After I finished the show (which ended with season 4 damn it!) I realized how much I loved G’kar and Lennier as characters and wished the show had concentrated more on them. (Naarns in general)
 

11.) Did your waning interest in #9 kill your interest in the show? (Ichigo/Rukia)
More like the show killed my interest in the pairing.   Bleach was doing okay, then it got boring, then it got OMGWTFBBQ!!!!1111 SO GREAT!!!, then it gor boring, then I lost interest, then I loved it again, then Orihime acted stupid and made me like her again, the Ishida acted stupid and made me not like him again, then I found out almost no one likes Hime/Ishida, then I lost interest when the half-hollows/half-people people came on. Although I’m starting to wonder what happened so maybe I’ll start downloading again.
 

12.) What's a song that reminds you of #5? (Naruto/Hinata)
The Blood of Cuchulainn - Mychael Danna. It reminds me of Hinata in general and would look cool as a NaruHina AMV. (Okay, I cheated and chose a song without any words but I’m just not good at that kind of thing. The only songs that remind me of couples is if I saw a really good AMV of them.)


13.) Which of these ships do you love the most?
Aang/Katara. Followed closely by M/S.

14.) Which do you dislike the most?
 Probably Elricest. I think.

15.) If you could have any of these two pairings double date, who would it be? (even better if they're from different shows)
Sokka/Mai and Ling/ Ran Fan. I don’t actually really support Sokka/Mai but those characters would fit so perfectly on a double date with Ling and Ran Fan. Ling and Sokka=luffs food and are funny guys. ((Except Ling is all evil now…so maybe Zuko would be better. Okay, Sokka for preGreed!Ling and Zuko for postGreed!Ling)) and Ran-Fan and Mai could like, compare ninja skills. I dunno, I’ll have to think on this because Hinata seems a little more suited to have fun with Ran Fan…Sokka/Hinata would be so weird though…

16.) Have #2 kissed yet? Elaborate if you'd like. (Ling/Ran Fan)

 YES!!! OFF SCREEN!!! ON THE THE ACROSS THE DESERT TO AMESTRIS!!! C’mon we so totally know it happened. Okay, maybe only in my mind but it should of. And there should be so much kissing when Ling and Ran Fan go back to Xing.

17.) Did #4 have a happy ending? If the show hasn't ended yet, do you think a happy ending is likely? (Gil/Agatha)
Ha, of course they will. It’s been implied 4 pages into Gil’s introduction he and Agatha will be married and live happily ever after. As soon as he pushed her out of the way of the exploding bomb the audiance knew it was those two. Plus, Agatha is engaged to him…sort of. Also, despite having a few guys interested in her, Gil is the only one she’s shown interest back in. Also, Tarvek really only wanted to use both her and Lucrezia for their spark while Lars didn’t even know who she really way. Gil liked her upon meeting, is impressed with her mechanical skills, would rather work with her on some experimental contraption than force her to work for him, and offered to marry her for her protection before learning she was the Heterodyne heir. On Agatha’s view, he is the son of the man who has been ruthlessly pursuing her from day one but he’s the only guy who respects her as a scientist and as an equal. Plus, after she faked her own death to escape she did feel a bit sorry about having to decieve him, and even though she doesn’t know what his intentions for her are (get her as far away from his father and other pursuing manipulators as possible) she still likes him.

18.) What would make you start shipping #14? (Racheal/Marco)
If one of them wasn’t dead and the other a hollow shell.

19.) If only one could happen, which would you prefer - #2 or #6?  
Well, since I’ve already seen how Tom/Hester turned out, probably Ling/Ran Fan. Although Tom and Hester’s relationship parallel Ling and Ran Fan’s, with the disfigurement, Hester was also kind of crazy. Their relationship was very sweet though, even though a lot of it consisted of misunderstandings and hardship.

20.) You have the power to decide the fate of #10. What happens to them?
Edward and Al kill all the fangirls/boys of this pairing. Brutally. Then Ed marries Winry and Al is his best man while Al hooks up with Mei-Chan ((Xingese girl traveling with scar))or somethin’.

I am using memlu's avatar as she said they were free for the taking. If she minds or I made an internet faux pas, please do tell as I am inexperienced in the ways of sharing graphic content and meant no offense.

Other than that, Stay Flamin', Avatar.

By the way, I am totally in love with this AMV.

1) AVATAAAARRR!!!  Finally.   10 Months people. 10 damn months.  It's finally over.  
I am a bit lost over when the premire will air as I live in the southwest and the time goes by MST.  However, Nickelodeon, among other channels, before have switched so their shows start three hours late.  Looking on the Nick schedule, it says Tak and the Power of Juju is on while on my TV, it is Ned's Declassified.  Ned is shown to come on at 6:30 PM.  It is only 3:30 PM.  Does this mean my dear, sweet Avatar will be coming on at  5:30???  One can only hope.  Whatever though, I'm still going to be watching Nick from 3-Avatar comes on. No matter how...painful. ::shudder::

2)No Avatar Mag for me.  Apperently, Barnes & Noble feels like they are to good to stock it.  Or call certain customers back when asked about it. Hmm....

3)I have been congested and feverish for the past month. Woe is me.

4) I can bench press 55 lb. !  Not much, but considering I was only doing 15 at the beginning of the school year, improvement has been great.

Aand now I just found the detailed review of The Awakening.

...uhhh. Besides the fact that I am so incredibly HAPPY about the new information and am positively dying to see the new season...that reviewer was a bit...harsh. Really, Aaron H. Bynum, it is a kids show.  But as harsh as it seemed he still seemed to like it. :D

Revelation

mood: workinglisting
music: path-apocolyptica

So I was walking through the dirt to my homeroon listening to Mr. L call some kids to the office when I was hot by a revelation. Everyone around me is Hispanic. I know, duh to the max but sometimes you just forget you're a minority.  On the internet/news anytime people talk about racism it's almost always white vs. everyone else and how much white people are "oppressive" and "elitists".  I can rant about that but I won't because I'm sure it's been done before.  Instead I'll make a list of stuff that may or may not be unique to Yuma, Arizona.  At least, I haven't personally seen these things outside of my region.



Anyway, I just downloaded the uber-awesome season 3 Avatar trailer and I love it even more if possible.  Aang rolling around while Toph kicks some ass made me laugh real hard for some reason.  Also, WHY AREN'T THERE MORE KATAANG FANFICS!!!?????!!!??  C'MON!  YOU HAVE AANG AND KATARA PRACTICALLY NAKED FIGHTING TOGETHER AND JUST THE SHEER AWESOME OF THEIR FIGHT SCENES AND JUST THE OMG!KATAANGST SEEMS LIKE IT WOULD CAUSE A JUICY, WET, EXPLOSION OF KATAANGSTION.  AHHH, YOU'RE ALL A BUNCH OF WANKERS!!!  THE COSTUMES ALONE!!  

I forget though, that Avatar fandom is frikkin' insane. Insane.

I've also sadly been neglecting this Maiko forum, Flaming Knives.  I like Maiko, not as much as Kataang, but oh my GOD, I just can't seem to get up enough motivation to get out of the Kataang thread.   It's sad, I joined a Maiko community but I only hang out in the Kataang thread.  Must. Post. Elswhere.  Ahh, I'm nervous though.  Everyone seems so close and I only know Psylum (kinda...sorta..not really...) and feel weird.  Like an intruder...hmm, enough wangst.  TIME TO SOAK MY SORE FLESH!!!

I can not be allergic to shellfish. 
I mean being allergic to a whole crapload of stuff sucks already.


 I CAN'T TAKE ANOTHER ONE!!
I picked up some shrimp cocktail for dinner and as I was eating them my eyes started to swell shut and my throat got all itchy and swollen along with my ears.  Now my face is all puffed up and I had to choke down some benadryl.
I like shellfish.  I love popcorn shrimp. I WANT TO BE ABLE TO EAT AT RED LOBSTER WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT DYING!!!

Fuck, fuck, FUCK.

Why can't I be able to eat food like everyone else? ;_;
These allergy shots I'm getting are just giving me NEW allergies.
Ugh...this medicine always puts me to sleep.  So here I am, Saturday night.  Seven forty-one.  Falling asleep while my face is swollen and painful. Craving dairy products.

God damnit.

Why?  Please God, why do you let good shows fall into such slums and have them seem to only churn out episodes for the ratings????  I'm talking, of course, about Law and Order:SVU.  The original is, of course, the best but I watch SVU too.  Sometimes it gets a little sleazy and repeats plots or just gets a big No Fucking Way from me but usually, it's pretty good.  I don't watch it for the sexual tension or how their personal lives work, I watch it for the CASES.  Also, because the cops are not totally BRAIN DEAD and screw up cases, miss vital clues, etc.   

Anyway, the whole episode was basically Olivia talking to some stupid little girl over the phone who turned out to be some girl from Hondorus that was sold to some sexual predator to be used as child porn.  Ehh, that was okay.  Believable.  Anyway, this guy is starving her to death and when she finally faints from hunger he comes home and realizes that Maria was talking to the cops.  He runs and burries Maria along with the porn stuff in some empty lot.  She's been there for an hour by the time Olivia and Ice-T get there.  Okay, they knew that she was burried and they would have to dig her up.  The cops coming in knew this.  Now, I ask you, wouldn't someone bring shovels? Wouldn't the cops of New York who, apparently deal with this shit every day  have the insight to bring shovels??
No, no one did.  The dug her up using metal clipboards.  Ridiculous.  Utterly ridiculous.  Whoever wrote that episode should be made to dig up a body with clipboards.

SVU, you fail.

REAL cops bring SHOVELS.
