Oooh, my first flame (?) on DeviantArt!

Lookit what I got for the posted Sess/Kag doujinshi page (*link*)! I'm not exactly sure how to answer this, actually. I feel it's unwarranted and it annoys me, but I really have no idea how to react.



Thanks for the favorite on that Truth picture...but...
This picture makes me SO sad. It's well-done, but you've effectively butchered the characters... Why don't you just put made-up characters together instead of wrecking the personalities of established characters...?



The thing is a parody -- I don't think she got that, or even bothered to read the full script which I posted along with the picture. Hn. I'm getting more annoyed by the second.

Also, LJ is not mailing comments since yesterday... What's up with that?

Eh. I'm betting she flames clearly marked alternate pairings at FF.N as well. Naw, I doubt she read the script..heck she may not even know what the word parody means. Surprisingly a lot of people don't. Which in itself boggles me.

I would react with sarcasm, but that's just me. ^_^

I've noticed LJs lack of mailing comments. Hm. I thought it was just me.

Yes, from what I've seen of her stuff she seems to be quite the Inuyasha/Kagome shipper. Which is not bad, as such, but I guess she doesn't have much tolerance for other pairings. *shrug*

Heee. Well as long as Sesshoumaru is naked, it's all good in my book.

There are some pairings I go ick over, but on the whole whatever makes you happy is fine by me. Besides Kagome + Sesshoumaru + Bondage = Very hot.

Wait, there's people who care about pairings in *fanart*? I don't see why it would matter to anyone, no matter how anal about pairings they might be, so long as it's pretty (which it is).

And damn, it has Sess naked. What more can anyone ask for?

I'd ignore it if I were you. It seems like a pretty dumb comment, worth a "Wtf?" and not much else. Or you could explain 1) it's a parody, and 2) Sess/Kagome is hot, ignore if you don't like.

Yeah, well, it seems so. I don't understand it myself...

I explained the parody thing. Didn't get an answer, though. I guess she was more interested in venting her righteous anger than she was in an actual discussion.

People care about pairings with icons too. It's really, really sad.

But, yes Naked Sesshoumaru should put all other problems to rest. XD

Aww, don't worry about that fool. Yes, think of the word being said by Mr. T. FOO'!

Anywhoot, there are some people who just don't believe that Kagome can be with anyone other than Inuyasha (gag me). Obviously she doesn't realize that people can (gasp!) and do (double gasp!) 'butcher' these so-called 'established characters.'

It's a good thing she's narrow-minded. Nobody else will agree with her because I'm sure everyone else who can actually keep an open mind, will agree that your deviation was purely for yourself.

Thank you! *hug*

But really, it's hard for me to understand intolerance, at least when people are intolerant of things that don't really hurt anyone. This might seem like a strange thing to say after I've just put up a pet peeves list regarding a fandom like Inuyasha, but I think I made it clear that it was merely an opinion -- my opinion. And even then, I object more to poor execution of a plot idea or pairing than to the idea itself.

Ah well.

Well, as you know, for the most part I'm a canon Nazi. I don't write Aragorn with anyone but Arwen, or Faramir with anyone but Eowyn. But that's mostly because they fit so damned well together, who am I to think I can improve on the Professor's pairings? I also tend to want to keep Will Turner with Elizabeth Swann in PotC fic, as their relationship is firmly established as a deeply loving one.

When relationships remain ambiguous, as in the case of characters from BtVS, HP, and IY-- where no commitments are made and no one really declares lasting devotion to anyone else (except for Buffy and Angel, and even then it wasn't a recipe for longevity and permanent togetherness)-- there's room to wiggle.

Who's to say that Harry's got to end up with Ginny or Hermione? What about Luna? And why *couldn't* Kagome get fed up with Inuyasha's intimacy issues and turn to the scorchingly-icy Sesshoumaru, who might likewise be fascinated by the enigma that is Future-Girl?

There's no commitment between Miroku and Sango, who who's to say she couldn't look for something more genuine in Inuyasha? And for such a lecher-- even a sweet and wise one-- I bet a saucy vixen like Kagura might be just what Kaede ordered.

I know you're a stickler for canon, sweetie, but you wouldn't go around bitching at people unless they take a setting/pairing that's clearly AU and declare it's actually canon. Which happens with a lot of the LOTR slash out there.

I agree to everything you've said, by the way. For some reason Sesshoumaru/Kagome affects me so very, very deeply, and I still haven't found out why. But I have this constant itch to do either fanart or write fanfiction about them because the pairing has the potential to be so achy and complex.

Usually the fanart wins out though -- it's so much easier than writing. :P

Sing it, sister. That slashy nonsense makes me long to slay the moron speaking about it.

This isn't to say slash is bad, just that I have no wish to hear any more tired wishful-thinking-spurred excuses for why Aragorn and Legolas are having the hot buttsex.

Or, dear god, Sesshou and Inuyasha. Saw one of those the other day and nearly gagged.
