Bleach fandom Y U DO DIS. [Dec. 11th, 2011|09:06 am]

Dear Ulquiorra/Orihime rabidshipper:

You know, you can like your pairing all right. Nobody's telling you not to do so. I really despise its fanon portrayal (and you love that one, afaik), but I know it's not the end and be all.

But seriously? When someone posts a tumblr rant protesting all the shipwars in Bleach (and makes good points about it), you simply do NOT reply to it with a rant that bashes the everloving fuck out of the pairing that opposes yours. You do NOT try using an anti-shipwar post to START bullshit. You do NOT go all "oh but this pairing is CANON and so OBVIOUS why don't people see it OMG".

And specially, you do NOT throw insult the fans of that pairing, compare them to other hated pairings, call them delusional and say you sooooo pity them because their pairing will never ever happen according to you.

SPECIALLY when you HAVE thrown babyish hissy fits when called out on your bullshit.

That simply wasn't nice, you idiot. Double considering that the pairing you're bashing is the one that is THE MAIN TARGET OF THE HATE. Not only it's not nice, but it's fucking STUPID.

No love,

ME.

In defense of Beauty and the Beast... [Nov. 2nd, 2011|03:07 pm]

I often hear people saying that Belle has Stolkhome syndrome, and that her relationship with the Beast(or Prince Adam) is abusive. Luckily, someone else has already defended this couple; http://ladybastet92.livejournal.com/59348.html?thread=265428 I'm still going to try defending them as well.

Now, on the surface it may make sense to say Belle has Stolkhome syndrome if you take the movie at facial value---she, after all, grew to love the Beast even though she was a prisoner. However, I think an important point is that she wasn't abducted. She went to the castle out of her own free will to save her father, Maurice. If Belle hadn't become a prisoner, her father would have never gotten his own freedom, and would of probably been killed by the Beast.

Also, if people got the message that loving an abusive guy will change him, they missed the point. Never did Belle try changing the Beast, nor did she go to the castle because she wanted to save the Beast's soul. As I mentioned before, she went there for one reason only: to save her father. She never put up with the Beast's bad temper, and in fact left the castle when he became too violent. If Belle had Stolkhome syndrome, or if their relationship was abusive for that matter, she wouldn't of been capable of leaving the Beast. She would have been too afraid. And if she wanted to, she could have never went back to that castle, but she did because the Beast saved her from the wolves and she need to heal the injuries he had sustained from fighting them off; if she hadn't, the Beast would have probably died.

It might seem strange that she didn't ask to leave once the Beast's injuries were healed, but to be fair the Beast started to become much more friendly from there on; not only did he save Belle's life, he also gave her a huge library. And his bad temper decreased as well. And it's not Belle who brought upon these changes---the Beast, and only the Beast, did so. Belle was not willing to up with the Beast's brutish behavior, so he realized that he had to treat Belle right if he wanted her to love him.

Furthermore, the Beast let Belle leave the castle when she realized that her father was endangered. If he were abusive, he wouldn't have let her leave. He would have tried at any cost to keep her in the castle, whether she liked it or not. Also, once again Belle would not have been capable of leaving if she had Stolkhome syndrome. Stolkhome syndrome is an irrational illness, something that happens unconciously. It is a subconcioius defense mechanism used for survival. Belle's love for the Beast was rational---it was a concious choice that she made over time as the Beast gradually redeemed himself.

It is Gaston who seems like a potential abuser---he was very persitent in his desire for Belle, and tried to make Belle marry him by using blackmail i.e. kidnapping her father. This is a direct contrast to the Beast, who loved Belle enough to let her go so that she could save her father. If the Beast hadn't changed his ways, Belle would have rejected him just like she rejected Gaston. She was not willing to tolerate Gaston's behavior, so that to me shows she wouldn't be willing to tolerate that kind of behavior in general.

Do you think writing an essay trying to disprove the rival ship to one's OTP is pointless, or does it depend on how it's written? I personally don't see the point myself...writing an essay on why it doesn't do anything for you or why you don't think it'd work is one thing, but dismissing all the canon hints as fabrications of the dub, subverting the hints and claiming the Japanese creators hate the ship seems silly to me.

(Fortunately, the linked essay is actually quite civil and coherent and takes care not to bash Misty. For that I can give it credit. And yeah, I'm aware it's probably old, but it's a mere example and nothing else.)

Long time no rant! [Oct. 23rd, 2008|04:20 pm]

So today, here's a little defense for a Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu pairing that gets a lot of flack: Levin/Sylvia. To break it down, he's a runaway prince who gets a badass holy weapon considered one of the best in the game, and she's a flirty traveling dancer with the hots for him. While the pairing has a good-sized band of supporters, there's twice as many who knock it for both stat and story reasons.

The arguments, and my statementsCollapse )

Now, I have no problem with people who truly believe the above. Some fans just can't see Levin/Sylvia and prefer canon. That alone is fine. What DOES bother me is when people use the above arguments as a way of telling Levin/Sylvia shippers "your opinion is wrong, I'm going to tell you what you should be doing instead". That attitude is a primary cause of shipping wars and it sucks ass.
