Change of pace as I slog through my essays and generally hate my life (though to be honest, I guess a good portion of that...doesn't have to do with the essays, haha).

Comment with a pairing and I'll tell you:
1. When I started shipping them
2. What I think their challenge is
3. What makes me happy about them
4. What makes me sad about them
5. What moment I wish had never happened
6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other
7. My happily ever after for them

And if I don't like them, I'll tell you why. Go ahead and comment with however many pairings. I want to procrastinate. ): (Latest applicable fandoms have been Clannad, Pandora Hearts... Fairy Tail, Black Cat... ... okay, well, apparently that's all I can remember. O_o Just go for anything.)

Also - well, I guess only directed at Rae since she's probably the only one who knows Ever17? Maybe playing Sora's route first was an awful choice, because it revealed the least about the plot and was boring compared to the others. Just. Shit this game. I'm in the middle of the 4th path and I think I have some things figured out but then other things...not so much. It's just so. @_@

Damnit, I was just going to reply and say that you had to pick the pairing. Why'd your edit beat me to the punch. :\

Going with Gray/Lucy:
1. When I started shipping them - I.......have no idea. 8D Gray was awesome after his arc and I think that's when I started liking them, but Lluvia's appearance probably was what really cemented it for me. Because I'm contrary. 8D
2. What I think their challenge is - That this is a shounen series, other pairings that are more popular >_> Probably Lluvia getting in the way of every moment, haha. Oh stalkers.
3. What makes me happy about them - Their interactions are hilarious 8D
4. What makes me sad about them - Hm, well. Unlike Rave Master, I think Fairy Tail's pretty pairing neutral, so the fact that they won't get many moments...or that I'll have to make them all up, haha.
5. What moment I wish had never happened - Can't think of anything.
6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other - :\ Well, if it ends up being Natsu/Lucy, whatever, but if it ends up being Gray/Lluvia... :\ :\ :\
7. My happily ever after for them - Being in Fairy Tail forever while they blow up all the cities they pass through and their adventures never end etc etc. Happy endings are hard. :\

Tomoya/Kyou. Tell me how your brain works. >_>;

Hahahahaha. Is that a good "@_@" or a bad "@_@"?
a regular decorated emergency.: Tomoya/Kyou - eh... .darkenedsakura on March 15th, 2010 12:29 am (UTC)
Hm, I should've expected that. And hey, even if I like Tomoyo a lot, I can still like Tomoya more with other people. ;;; Though haha, it's never very hard to figure out which character type is your favorite. :P

1. When I started shipping them - Probably after watching the Kyou After OVA. Before that I'd always been fine with the pairing, but I was preferring everything to Tomoya/Nagisa at that point. 8D It was just, yeah. The whole OVA ep. Just. Hell, I've rewatched both OVAs, so.

2. What I think their challenge is - Gee, canon. *glares daggers* And I'm sure Tomoya/Tomoyo's way more popular.

3. What makes me happy about them - Kyou is one of those characters for me that gets more awesome if she's around the right people. And I always just liked how comfortable they were around each other. It was just her entire route/arc - well, I guess I shouldn't say arc since it was never in the anime, but - just the way they handled the story about the twins right, and the way nobody was being honest with themselves, and everything. All of that just made the resolution that much better, or something.

4. What makes me sad about them - The fact that Nagisa exists. For me, Kyou's just one of those characters who will never get the good ending that she deserves, and you know how I'm a sucker for that kind of thing.

5. What moment I wish had never happened - Anime-wise, deeeeeefinitely that scene in the locked gym storage shed oh god I agree with you there. Wtf, butchering Kyou like that. >:[

6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other - Hey, I still like Tomoya/Tomoyo a lot. And Tomoya/Kotomi's still okay. I just happened to fixate on this pairing more. 8D

7. My happily ever after for them - ...definitely not any ending that KEY cooks up after seeing what they did with the Nagisa and Tomoyo After Stories, that's for sure. I mean, ouch. Yeah, there's usually not much to say about happy lives, but...it wouldn't kill you to not kill someone off from some kind of cancer or sickness or whatever, right??

Overall, I mean, I can see where Tomoyo's more awesome or interesting or whatever. But Kyou still has her strong points, and I think she and Tomoya are a really good fit. S'all, basically. I'm totally cooking up fic in my head. Unfortunately. I did say I wouldn't write for Clannad... *headdesk*

I think it's a good @_@. It's a "asdlkgjldkjg I want to know what the story finally is!" kind of thing. I'll probably not do enough hw and just beat the game tonight, hahaha. I'm just kinda...I wonder how Takeshi's role in this will turn out, considering my theory. And the fact that he and the Kid have the same VA...s'gotta mean something... Right now I just want to know, why the ticket stub with 2017 on it both times. It's, grr. Thwarting my suspicions.
Raerae00 on March 15th, 2010 02:52 am (UTC)
*grins* Considering I have one or two preferred types and then ignore almost everyone else? No, not hard.

1 - Y'know, I don't think I've seen that one.
2 - Ahahahahahaha.
3 - Yep, must've missed this part.
4 - Right there with you. And yes, yes you are.
5 - Yeah. Gr, argh.
6 - ;P ...uh, who's Kotomi?
7 - *snickers*

Ahahahaha. You never stick with your initial "I'll never write for this fandom.". And I like it that way. *wants to see Tomoya/Kyou ficcage out of curiosity*

Excellent. >D
a regular decorated emergency.: Tomoyadarkenedsakura on March 15th, 2010 03:37 am (UTC)
Hahaha. XD

1, 3 - ...Yeeeeeah. If I hadn't seen/read Kyou's route, I don't think I'd have particularly cared too much either. So you should go watch it sometime.

4 - One of these days, one of these harem/reverse harem series needs to make the other guy/girl, you know, one of the chars -we- like for once. I've always had this problem with these types of series. ;_;

5 - Actually, why are so many visual novel writers so pervy? alksdgj. I want to write my own...but I can't think of a good story...

6 - Are you joking? 8D Kotomi was the genius girl with the scary violin playing ability, whom Tomoya knew when they were young.

7 - *glares at KEY*

Well, I didn't want to write for this series 'cause I was pretty sure I had nothing to say, is all. D:

Grr. Give me some clues. Though haha, I'm at the point where Coco's calling Takeshi and Tsugumi "Papa" and "Mama" and, ahaha. ...I hope they get a happy ending, mrph.
Raerae00 on March 15th, 2010 03:41 am (UTC)
1, 3 - Link? :D

4 - Ever17 actually worked out so my preferred pairing was canon...But that's a special case for more than one reason; and yeah, usually, not so much.

5 - Uh, because 99% of them are eroge? Go read this one.

6 - Oh right, her. *sweatdrops*

Uh-huh. Like I said. Never works out that way. 'Specially when your favorite character/pairing goes to hell as usual. 8D

a regular decorated emergency.: Athrun/Cagalli - all that's left unsaiddarkenedsakura on March 15th, 2010 04:06 am (UTC)
What, I got Clannad from a friend who'd already downloaded it. :\ It's the 25th episode of After Story, anyway. I bet if you google it you'll find a direct download...nvm, here.

4 - Considering that in one pair, one girl's AI, and in another, one girl's the other guy's sister, I don't think it really counts as a pure harem/reverse harem series, yeah. :\

5 - While games for girls degenerate into dating sim crap. Blegh. And eh, have you played it before? Good?

Well I mean, it was always blatantly obvious that it'd end up being Tomoya/Nagisa...but I just didn't really have anything to say about the others, either, since their happy endings are all happy enough. So, yeah. ...mrph. One day, I will like a (het) pair that everyone else likes. One day. ... yeah.

...Had to stop playing 'cause I really need to work on my essays. Why, finals week. Why. D: I'm determined to beat this game tonight though. Oooooooooh. Goddamn forensics paper fuck fuck fuck.
Raerae00 on March 15th, 2010 04:14 am (UTC)

4 - Yep.

5 - Yeah. Really good.


Yeeah. Finals week. >_>;
a regular decorated emergency.: Mai; Bou-san - say what?darkenedsakura on March 15th, 2010 04:39 am (UTC)
Enjoy? 8D;;;;

Hm, okay, I'll try the game out. When I'm done with my Tuesday finals, haha. (Friday's shouldn't be too bad...otherwise, I'll have something to entertain me on the long train ride to Michigan. At 7:30 am. Sob.)

And I just had to say. So I finished editing my polisci essay and and and then I got to the part where Coco said who her mother was and where Tsugumi and the hologram pendant and the - - -


Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh asdlkgjlkdjg this game. alkdgjlks. No way. No way.
Raerae00 on March 15th, 2010 05:53 am (UTC)
You do that. *pats*

a regular decorated emergency.darkenedsakura on March 15th, 2010 07:35 am (UTC)
Stop laughing at me. D8 Okay, actually Jessica and I were both reading the end of the visual novel (after I explained the whole thing to her, haha), and we're trying to figure out several things about the time paradox. Namely, where does the time paradox begin (because everything was set up to trick Blick Winkel...but he told them to do that...so how did 2034 ever happen...), and why did the life counter keep changing - and why was it ever at 7 during Takeshi's route? During Kid's route it could have made more sense, but... @_@? We've been debating this paradox for a while, but no go, it only got me more confused.
Raerae00 on March 15th, 2010 07:42 am (UTC)
...You realize it's been too long for me to remember enough to help you with any of those questions? *sweatdrops*
a regular decorated emergency.: Devil Survivor - MCdarkenedsakura on March 15th, 2010 07:43 am (UTC)
What, you should try. D8 Jessica just isn't letting this paradox go and I've gotta sleep and do work soon, man. 8D Just go glance at the wiki or something. ):
Raerae00 on March 15th, 2010 07:44 am (UTC)
*rolls eyes* Do I get good coffee for my trouble?
Raerae00 on March 16th, 2010 12:41 pm (UTC)
Well. That was. ...interesting?
a regular decorated emergency.: Dean - really?darkenedsakura on March 16th, 2010 03:51 pm (UTC)
Re: coffee - why so stingy. :\

And re: Kyou ep.............uh oh. Though I wasn't really expecting you to like the pairing after the ep, hahaha.
Raerae00 on March 16th, 2010 05:18 pm (UTC)
Because that thing was convoluted, and complicated, and convolutedly complicated, and I'm running low on brainpower and patience at the moment.

I don't really have an opinion...which I guess it better than having a negative one.
a regular decorated emergency.: FE10 - Miadarkenedsakura on March 17th, 2010 01:20 am (UTC)
Ah, finals. ): Ah well, I gave up trying to explain the paradox to her, so it's all good. Just wasn't appreciative of how it kept me up past 3 am for no reason that night is all.

Haha, my tastes will never really match up to anyone else's so, eh, ah well. *laughs*
Raerae00 on March 17th, 2010 03:07 am (UTC)

Uh...No, Kyou has plenty of fans; I'm just not one of them.
a regular decorated emergency.darkenedsakura on March 18th, 2010 04:49 am (UTC)
Hm, didn't think she did, but ah well. It doesn't seem to affect icons (Nagisa's more or less dominating there) or fic (they all equally suck), so it doesn't matter. ;;;
Raerae00 on March 18th, 2010 05:10 am (UTC)
Fanart, doujins, 4chan.
a regular decorated emergency.darkenedsakura on March 18th, 2010 06:38 am (UTC)
4chan I don't care about, but I've evidently not seen enough of the other two. Link me sometime. 8D 8D
Raerae00 on March 18th, 2010 06:52 am (UTC)
Uh, even if I had links, I'm pretty sure you wouldn't want them. The majority of doujin are ecchi.
a regular decorated emergency.darkenedsakura on March 18th, 2010 06:58 am (UTC)
....why do I always forget this detail about visual novels. *headdesksplat*

(Side note: ahahahahaha I'm reading the translations for the Kyou route, and ahahaha. After Tomoya and Ryou start dating, when Sunohara insists on dragging Tomoya to lunch, Tomoya always manages to evilly lock him somewhere and make it absolutely hilarious. And Kyou's antics. Hahaha. ...poor Sunohara. Sort of.)
Raerae00 on March 18th, 2010 06:58 am (UTC)
I just collected the only good fanarts I could find at a glance; see other comment.

Thank me for sparing you the rest of them. Also, the ones with "sample" in the filename have larger versions. Ask if you want 'em in highres.
