[#015] While B Plays Destiny....

...And I take a short break from doing random transcription work, putting up a post!! :D

Okay, so I'm doing three days, because when I copied over the first two, I automatically was like, um, I'm definitely not going to have a good enough response to justify A WHOLE POST. lol

30 Days of Fangirlism

Day 05 – Your fandom secret
Okay, I really couldn't think of one? In the few fandoms I've been an active participant in, I haven't really done anything that, I think, was worth keeping secret. The only thing I could think of was that in the early days of the JE anon hate meme, I was in there commenting (anonymously ofc). It was back when hate memes hated on the boys and not so much the users. I still remember cackling when Yamapi's dead fish eyes first came up because I remember commenting along in that convo. Still one of my favoritest fandom jokes.

Day 06 – Favorite song that brings fangirl tears to your eyes
Um. I'm trying to think. I don't know if I have any? Like, they'd have to be connected to something in particular. Like a jdrama or an anime. Like the song in 1 Litre of Tears that they sing on the bridge, I think? Definitely would make me tear up. But a song just in general? I don't know if I really have one.

Day 07 – Your OTP(s)
OKAY. SO. In general, I never have ONE ship that I will stick to. Currently though, since I'm only actively reading for two fandoms, that's what I'll talk about. In Teen Wolf, it's hands down Sterek aka Stiles/Derek. I can read other fic in that fandom with other pairings, but about 90%-95% would have to be Sterek. Then there's Check, Please where it just HAS to be Jack/Bitty. But again, I can read other pairings in that fandom, but my OTP is without a doubt Zimbits! :D

Days: 01 | 02 | 03 | 04

I hope I will be seeing Rhey and Cyn in my comments again. >.>

Several of those dead fish comments were me. :x I did it out of love. :x

Have you read any good Sterek lately?

Fandom secret: I was like, 13, 14? And had questionable taste. That is to say, I...quite enjoyed Cassandra Clare's Draco Trilogy back in the day. I think part 2 had just started maybe when I picked it up. I stayed up so late into the night trying to read everything in one go omg I was obsessed

Song: nothing really but going the J drama route like Tin, I have a pretty special place in my heart for Bokura no Machi de ♥

OTP: too many TIN DO YOU WATCH BLACK SAILS

I'M PRETTY SURE WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THIS. that we in fact were talking to each other and possibly started the dead fish eye thing? maybe? I CAN'T REMEMBER. if so, OUR LEGACY, LOLOL

GOD, okay so I still regularly follow sterek. I check all the damn tumblrs (even though some are gone SADLY) but there's a current exchange or something going on? It's called Teen Wolf Glompfest and while not all are Sterek, THERE ARE SOME AND THERE ARE REALLY GOOD ONES. (look here: http://tw-glompfest.tumblr.com/) There was also a random Derek/Kira I read that was damn cute. I love Kira. <3 I also still bookmark shit on AO3 so here, easy linkage to my bookmarks in Sterek.

Oh god. Cassandra Clare. Oh god. I mean I think we all had a bit of questionable taste when we were kids. I LOVED Ginny/Draco, and if i went back to reread the fics I loved, i don't think they'd hold up. T.T

I DO NOT WATCH BLACK SAILS. i'm not a big fan of most shows that aren't contemporary? XDDDD
Man I still do not get Ginny/Draco like him and Hermione? I GET IT. But I also was very meh about how Ginny's character was handled in the novels...and it barely exists in the movies... AND LUNA EXISTS MAN. LUNAAAAAAA.
I MEAN, i just really liked her concept too? the youngest daughter in this whole family, has to somehow show herself up in this gigantic family where the brothers overshadow. even ron can, because dude, he's harry potter's second man. so, i really liked that idea? and ofc, I LIKE opposites attract so i was all about the potential. and I LOVED LUNA but i never really viewed her with draco back then.

I love that I knew the joke BEFORE I KNEW YOU TWO and was in awe when I discovered you guys started it.

Fandom secret: I totally didn't even know CC was a thing and all that came out of it until way way later/after she'd been published. I was like firmly in camp MWPP fic. LOL.

I wanna read about more OTPS GUYS CMOOOOOON.
Hey I said I'd be here and here I am of course I am don't doubt me
LOVE YOU RHEY. <333333
RHEY WAS HERE BEFORE ANY OF US EVEN REALIZED SHE WAS HERE. I AM NOT WORTHYYYYYYYY.
<33333
Secret? Another? Ok actually I started off not liking Luna I KNOW WTF IS WRONG WITH ME. But I was very protective of the trio and was happy that Ginny was pushed to the side after book 2. I am terrible. It also took me some time to love Meiling from CCS I AM ASHAMED OF MY CHILDHOOD SELF. But now I love all the girls and Ginny grew on me in certain ways outside of canon bc I still think other people handled her better than JK.

Ummm. I also don't have a song that gives me feels. OH WAIT. I was listening to Honey and Clover's waltz before heading off into the great unknown of college and I remember WEEPING SO HARD ABOUT EVERYTHING IT FELT LIKE I WAS LOSING AND HAVING TO GROW UP ETC. man I should go look up that song and learn to sing it at karaoke...I am trying to pin down Ayaka's real voice but I could probably only do it at a Korean place if I don't learn some hiragana/katakana.

OTPS...HMMM OH WHERE TO BEGIN.
HEY YOU JUST TALKED ABOVE ABOUT WANTING TO READ MORE OTPS. FROWNY FACE. Okay, so if i were to expand, MORE OTPS. THROUGH MY FANDOMS

Sailor Moon - Usagi/Mamori, Inner Senshi/Shittentou (AND I REALLY WISH THERE HAD BEEN MORE DONE WITH THIS, OKAY?)
Digimon - Tai/Mimi, Hikari/Takeru
Pokemon - Ash/Misty (um. does this count anymore? like, i loved them at the start and then she disappeared and do ppl even ship in pokemon anymore? i SO REMEMBER ASH/GARY.)
Harry Potter - Ron/Hermione, Ginny/Draco, UH. I don't know if i read that much HP fic to begin with honestly?
JE - OH COME ON. That's like asking me my whiteday request post again. I mean, JE/GIRLS. Yamapi/Jin, Yamapi/everyone in the world, ARASHI/ARASHI. IDK. other people
all the jdramas. But i'll always remember certain pairings i wish happened, like Nakatsu/Mizuki (only in the jdrama version though, because toma.) or like long love letter, or most of yamapi's romance dramas, because fucking hell. IDK.

I can't really think of any more. OH. POWER RANGERS. my favorite season Power Rangers Time Force, THE PINK/RED RANGER THAT SEASON WAS LIKE EPIC ANGST, i loved it so much.
I HAD TO GET OFF THE BUS SOON YO.

I'm not as well versed in original SM terms, but that's the initial sailor scouts x Queen Beryl's henchmen right? I remember hearing that was a thing much later and being like :OOOOOOOOOO!!!

I SHIPPED ASH/MISTY. I DID SO HARD EVEN DESPITE HER BECOMING MORE AND MORE OF A TSUNDERE STEROTYPE AS THE ANIME WENT ON. (Not that I knew it at the time.) What was the acronym...AAMFS? Ofc Ash and Gary were a thing, huh. But I totally had blinders on back then and don' remember seeing anything with them...!

You don't have OTHER hidden fandoms (that i KNOW but) I don't know about? But yeah JE i think I was there through so many of your OTPs LOL. ♥
YESSSSSSSSSSSS. I don't know where I got the idea from. I think in the anime, there was just a hint of jadeite/mars, but i remember naoko takeuchi drawing them all together, and it was beautiful and such potential. i read ALL THE FICS that would ship them together. it was great. i just wish there had been more.

AHAHAHAHAH OMG YES AAMFS my first ever aim username was aamfan13, and my first yahoo email was maagirl_2000. THAT IS HOW GEEKY I WAS. and yeah, i think? idk. i guess ppl just really like enemies turned lovers. i say as though its' not one of my favorite tropes ever.

hahahahahahahah i blame you for a lot of it too, i hope you know. TEGOMASSUKI.

So much yes to the Sterek and Zimbits. And I don't even watch Teen Wolf. Just so much yes to Sterek.

Also, *snickers* at the Yamapi's Dead Fish Eyes. I never participated in the hate memes but I do love laughing at Pi's dead fish eyes. And all the JE jokes.
RIGHT THOUGH?! I've seen maybe half of season 1 of TW, but that was while, I think, season 5a was airing, and after hearing the shit that was going on, i basically dropped it. plus derek left. and what am i supposed to do about that?

DEAD FISH EYES WAS SO APT FOR HIM. Like, i love yamapi, but yes, he totally had dead fish eyes, and we needed to all embrace this. i feel like this is what je hate memes should've been. more about playful hate towards the boys, and less against the actual fans. because wtf, that is not fun.
They could've done so much more for Derek and his storyline instead of leaving him in this sort of hell where he's never happy and he does not deserve that at all. He was a victim of so much hate and just having him this messed up psyche & making so many mistakes where he doesn't grow better as a person or where his pack doesn't push him to be a better person (ie STILES) leaves me so so so disappointed with the writers. Also the way they left Kira out. Yeah. No. Not the right way to treat an Asian person nor a leading female. Screw that. Kira's story has so much potential to bring in all the Japanese culture into it and even crossover into Korean/Chinese to bring something fun and interesting and unique to the show where it's taking place in a state that has a huge population of Asians. idk. I just think the realms of possibility could've been explored more before going into different tangets but that's what fanfic is for.

and YES to the je hate meme being more playful jokes about the boys. Seriously, jun!bait brought in so many fans and the dorky friendship of the boys or the playful rivalries or the fun times of JE that I wish KPop showed more at the time and is starting to really show and capitolize on. All these collaborations would've been awesome. I seriously want RyoPin singing with half of TOKIO & Tackey all while wearing glasses with dead fish eyes on them and tin hats. because. reasons.
They never really treated their characters well enough, writing wise. Like, all they ever wanted was misery for them, because that drama is where it gets "interesting." except in exchange for all this interesting drama, they got rid of one of the essential things you need in a show, which is showing character growth. How did these events help shape characters? how are they moving from point a to point b? what are they gaining? and from what i can tell, absolutely fucking nothing.

and YES. what they did to kira was a crying shame. we finally had more females on that cast, it was almost like equal in gender i think? and you have this great asian representative. you brought in like, what, one japanese creature and then you stop? ARE YOU KIDDING ME, there was a DEEP DEEP DEEP WELL of supernatural creatures. just in japan alone! and i say this with confidence BECAUSE I HAD TO RESEARCH THIS SHIT FOR A FIC, AND IT WAS REALLY HARD TO NARROW DOWN GODS. So, no, you have no fucking excuse, and i really hope your show goes to such shit, because you do not deserve it. :////////////
Ugh, I hated the misery. I really love character growth which is probably why I never really got hooked into Teen Wolf. I want that growth and self-discovery and how a character reacts and responds in times of adversity. The story was interesting for a hot second when they did backstory as to how the Derek got to be where he is at that point in time but really, I want happy things for Derek. I do not want misery for all the characters all the time.
OH AND ON JE. what i really wish is that japan was more accepting of outside their own nation fandoms. like why is it so strange to them to share their material with us. i just want to be able to stream their things on youtube. watch their shows on netflix or hulu (more hulu because that's what we have), or whatever. I'M JUST SO SAD THIS WHOLE WEALTH OF FUCKING MATERIAL CANNOT BE AS ACCESSIBLE AS LIKE KOREAN DRAMAS. (sorry, super tangent lol)
SAME HERE re: korean vs japanese availability (altho that has a lot to do with Japanese consumers actually being about to support J's industry, which is not as true for Korea, I think I heard) but can you pls watch Terrace House on Netflix Kami? It's the Japanese!Real World I was talking about and THAT SHIT IS SO GOOD WATCH IT WITH B AND THEN COMMENT WITH ME AND YAMASATO BC HE TOTALLY SAYS WHAT I AM ALWAYS THINKING.

I am literally gonna get through as many fandom OTPs as i can remember be prepared.

FF series: (7) Cloud/TIfa, ZACK/AERITH, (Dissidia) Cloud/Terra (LOL), (6) Weirdly Sabin/Terra, Locke/Celes kinda but not really, (9) Zidane/Garnet ofc, VIVI/HAPPINESS but ok Eiko was cute too, OH Steiner/Beatrix (10) Tidus/Yuna for a bit, but that one wasn't my fav.

Pokemon: Srsly was there anything other than Ash/Misty? Gary was a punk.

Digimon: I don't think I had an active OTP until YamatoSora became canon and then I was like YEAH OK I DIG IT. And then in my third or fourth trip back to Adventure TAICHI/MIMI and MIMI/EVERYONE and TAIORATO. Oh wait I lied my first Digimon OTP is Ryo/Ruki from Tamers. Ken/Miyako was great too! And yes ultimately I thought no one would be better for each other than Hikaru/Takeru even tho I didn't quite ship them actively as much as just liked the together thematically.

CCS: Sakura/Syaoran OFC, Eriol/Tomoyo (bc who wouldn't), MEILING/KAI (who was a fan character BUT DAMN HE WAS SO FINE)

Harry Potter: JAMES/LILY MAN. I will forever hate the Snape/Lily plot. Also MWPP where Peter is less of an obvious scapegoat bc man his character could've been, again, so much more interesting if he was an actual friend, not a follower, and why he ultimately turned to the dark side and ugh. It's also kinda...HMMM that the only traitor was also supposed to not be attractive. What is that term where outsides connote insides? Yeah, that's lame. But I was also staunchly Ron/Hermione after book 4 and before she turned Ron into a shell of his former self... > >

Shaman King: Yoh/Anna FOREVER.

One Piece: I have a soft spot for Luffy/Nami or Zoro/Nami

Naruto: U G H GROSS SOBBING BC THE ENDING WAS GROSS. I love how I usually start shipping the popular pairings, bc so much good fanstuff is made for them, but ultimately I sunk with Naruto/Sakura and Naruto as a series no longer exists for me. So.

Gundam Seed: DESTINY DOES NOT EXIST and Athrun/Cagalli is forever perfect. Kira/Lacus is cool too but ATHRUN/CAGALLI THO. This was probably my most prolific fandom right before JE. LOL.

Dragon Ball: I read SOOOOOO MUUUUUCH Trunks/Pan fanfic omg. HAHAHA. I think I also liked Bra/Goten even tho that's falls into weird territory. Also the canon couples amirite. This is how you do random pairings without turning your series to garbage. TIME SKIP AND NO DUMB ROMANCE SHOUJO MOVIE.
Ranma 1/2: Ranma/Akane cmon, tho again I wish she wasn't such a tsundere/tomboy burns water stereotype. BUT REALLY I loved Ryoga/Ukyo's dynamic, and ofc Shampoo/Mousse.

Inuyasha: Kagome got on my nerves so I was more in the Miroku/Sango camp.

Rurouni Kenshin: Kenshin/Kaoru but damn too many tsundere girls who are reduced to being useless so their men look better in comparison. DO BETTER JAPAN.

PPG: PPG/RRB maaaaaaan. I drew so much fanart when the anime was starting and then the anime ended up being shit I heard (never watched it). I WILL REC THE ULTIMATE FIC FOR THIS SERIES AGAIN IF SOMEONE WANTS.

Soul Eater: Maka/Soul forever but damn did I warm to the idea of Kid/Maka.

FULL METAL ALCHEMIST: Literally every couple that became canon and every couple that pretty much was canon and THIS IS HOW YOU WRITE RELATIONSHIPS IN THE BACKDROP OF AN ACTION SERIES, JAPAN!!!

Wow at this point I'm checking my old FF.net account to see what I actually wrote for LOL.

DETECTIVE CONAN: Yoooo, IDC what haters say Shinichi/Ran. And also their Kyoto counterparts are SO CUTE. ALSO KAITO/AOKO. Damn I miss these 3-chapter murder mysteries where the main story moves at a snail's pace.

JDramas: Akira to Nobuta (to Shuuji) forever. ;_______; Also Kurosagi/fan written!Tsurarara. YES TO NAKATSU/MIZUKI altho I shipped him with her friend in the manga and WHAT A WASTE SHE NEVER CAME BACK.

Shit there must be so much more bc I was SUCH A fandom hopper (CLEARLY)--funnily I never shipped in SM, I just loved the series bc MAGICAL GIRLS.

JE: Special shoutout to Yamapi/Maki man. Even tho everyone began to hate it--it started so much for me.
omg you reminded me of a couple I'd forgotten!!!

CCS OF COURSE IT WAS SAKURA/SYAORAN. and Eriol/Tomoyo. DEF THE BEST. hilariously though, my fav character was Meiling (hence why I went by Meiling for years and years and years), and i wanted her to be so so happy but had no one to ship her with. ....Now who is kai?

Ranma 1/2 YES I FORGOT ALL ABOUT THIS ANIME. I loved it in high school and def shipped Ranma/Akane. like come on.

FMA FMA FMA yes, definitely ALL THE CANON RELATIONSHIPS. so fucking cute.

wait there were haters for shinichi/ran?????? come on guys. that's like the crux of the whole thing. i just want this manga to be done so that we can FIND OUT HOW IT FUCKING ENDS ALREADY. I love those mysteries though and hahaha yes their kyoto counterparts were the fucking cutest.

akira to nobuta to shuuji. korette destiny? T.T

lol to the kurosagi/fan written!tsurara but yeah. like in either version, manga or jdrama, that was probably weird, but fanfiction version? yes please. lol
YES. And ofc I knew about your Meiling love you were way cooler than me in that regard. That said, there was a SPRAWLING EPIC CCS fanfic with dozens of new characters. I started reading in like...7th grade? But it held up even sometime when I went back to read in college. It's probably still not complete, but there's a thief character named Kai in it and he has SO MUCH CHEMISTRY WITH MEILING they are canon for me. (love/hate if i remember correctly--*wiggles eyebrows*). Fic here: http://www.wishluv.com/newtrials.htm

FMA is still the best series whose primary focus wasn't about romantic relationships that handled romantic (and familial, friendly, ALL RELATIONSHIPS) so perfectly!!!

YES. like OK you can prefer Shinichi/Ai if you want, and yeah Ran cries a bit too much for my tastes, but cmon she is so great and does akido and SHE LOVES HIM SO MUCH OK.

I just wanted Tsurara with a spine and a Kurosagi who was less angsty and more tongue-in-cheek. WAS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR?
Day 01 – Your favorite all-time fandom(s)
Gotta be JE. I still have some mixed feelings about me in the past (GDI i was such a WEEB sometimes) but man all the friends i still have from fandom are from this one. Well, that's also bc it was my last fandom until I had no time for anything WHY DO I HAVE NO TIME FOR ANYTHING. Well that's a lie I read a lot of avengers fic a while back OH HAY NEW OTPS: Natasha/Avengers and Natasha/Steve why couldn't that have been The Thing OK OK Bucky fine. I was also so into Peggy/Jack first bc of Chad Micheal Murray's FACE but then because their relationship became so interesting and he didn't have her on a pedestal from the beginning (still damaging, even tho Jack was more of an obnoxious mysogynistic prick) but man. Attractive people together pls.

These comments are so nonsensical and I just don't use commas anymore huh?

Day 02 – Your current fandom
Terrace House? LOL. I like a lot of things/TV but not enough to pursue fannish stuff. But haaaay I was obsessed with Miraculous Ladybug for a good chunk of time semi-recently. OT4 deliciousness wrought with secret identities and etc. And the side bffs pairing was cute too.

Day 03 – First fandom, the one that made you the fangirl you are today
The first fandom that made me seek out fic/WRITE fic, I'm pretty sure was FF7. Bc FF6 was great, but didn't have too much in the way of romantic storylines. But after that, my other big milestones were for CCS (first "chapter fic" HAHA), Digimon, Shaman King, Gundam Seed, JE...this didn't answer the question did it.
