PostSubject: I don't understand most pairings.    Wed Aug 01, 2012 7:03 pm



I don't understand what's so appealing about crack pairings. /:
In fact, I don't even understand the whole idea of pairings if you don't have a good reason to why they would date each other.

For example: Hidan x Shikamaru from Naruto Shippuden. I'm sorry if you've never watched this anime or heard of it, but it's the best example I could come up with. And for those of you who have watched Naruto, yes, this is taken as a serious pairing, I've seen fanclubs for it, videos, fanart, etc.

Here's exactly why it wouldn't work: Would you date a reckless, insane criminal with no sense of human compassion, who just happened to kill your teacher/father figure? Oh and it doesn't help that you blew him to bits.

Now you might say 'These are all fictional characters, let people have their fun!' Well okay then. But what I don't get is why you would even ship those people in the first place, when they have nothing in common. 'Well they look cute together!' Oh, I'm sorry that I care more about my OTPs getting along than how good they look together. I don't hate you if you ship crack pairings or anything, I just don't see the logic in it.


/end rant. sorry. I needed to get this off my chest, I've been getting involved in fandoms a lot lately and this is all I've been seeing.

so talking about gays ruins kid's innocence, huh. |: close-minded much?
besides, there aren't kids that little here.

seriously, could one of the mods delete this topic? it's only been up for a few minutes and it's turning into something it wasn't meant to be.

So basically the younger children knows what homosexuals are the innocence starts to go away? They should at least know at 5 so they don't be homophobes.

Hidan/Shikamaru
I think the appeal here is that people like angsty relationships (or something to that effect). Or maybe the thing that attracts people is actually the impossibility of the pairing.
Raving psycho and the lazy genius get together after they battle because they realize they love eachother blah blah blah sloppy makeouts ensue
Whatever. Let people ship what they want to ship.

Well, THIS EXCALATED QUICKLY.

Also, "People should be able to ship who they want to (I completly agree)" Yea, just like in real life "People should be with who they want to be with." :P

Some fandoms ship everyone with each other. Though you might not participate in it, you kinda have to just try not to mind it. Some people are very protective of their ships.
Most of he GONE fandom fangirls over/wants to date a 14 year old sadistic murderer with no humanity. Pretty much everyone who's ever made eye contact is shipped. They ship Nutella x Pepsi. It's just how some fans interpret the characters/objects. I don't know, some people have really active imaginations. Seeing everything canon gets a bit boring after a while so they let their imaginations run wild and can add to the "normal" storyline. It's just another way of interpreting everything.

*Escalated.

If I weren't somebody with incredibly good vision, I would not be able to see those words.
Well, people just do it cause they look cute together. I personally do not like guyxguy pairings, either.

I have heard of yaoi pairings, I'm a big fan of a game called dynasty warriors, and they do that, I think it's fine as long as it's not too explicit (private parts, ect) pairings should matter on the story line (say I'm making a fan fic, a girl is after a guy whom killed her father, but she falls in love with him because of his features/kindness towards her, not knowing he killed her father.) it matters on the plot of the story, it's ridiculous how someone puts two people together because "they look cute together!" or "they both have blonde hair!!" stupid stuff like that. I agree.

/end rant. sorry. I needed to get this off my chest, I've been getting involved in fandoms a lot lately and this is all I've been seeing.

Tons of fanbases are like this. You get used to it after a bit.
Storyline/history rarely matters in pairings; Kid and Crona have quite a few shippers and they only have one scene where they actually have a conversation in the anime. One scene. It's not even a minute and a half long. They have no connection at all pastwise.

Also, they're polar opposites.

Ever heard the saying "opposites attract"? That applies to almost every pairing I've seen recently. Stein x Blair, L x Light, and for instance the Naruto pairing you used as an example. Oh, and don't forget Lag x Gauche from
Tegami Bachi (that's more of pedophilia than opposites). I've seen and heard way too much of them as a pair for it to be humorous.

The biggest reasons that most fans ship crack pairings is because:
1. They're original and creative /in some aspects/.
2. The pairings are most likely not hetero. Bisexuality, homosexuality, and pansexuality are becoming more popular every day. A lot of people who have those sexual orientations, including myself, like the fact that people are opening up to these pairings.
3. You're answering your own question; they'd never be together.
4. Most of the people who like crack pairings ship their two favorite characters from an anime or from, and I've seen this plenty, two different animes. They like the fact that in their heads their two favorite charas can be together, even if it'll never happen in real life.
5. Again, polar opposites.

Oh okay. Well, that cleared up some things for me, I suppose.
But I still don't get the whole 'opposites attract' thing. I would never date somebody who's personality conflicts my own. But maybe that's just my personal preference.

And I'm okay with non-hetero pairings. Actually, I've been seeing a lot more of them than I have straight pairings lately.
