Anti-Romance in Yu-Gi-Oh!
I upped this on my journal and janime, and insaneladybug saw it and suggested I post it here, so here you go. Look behind the cut. A continually-edited and updated version is found here on Janime.

Hello~ I joined here sometime ago but haven't posted anything until now, so... ^^;
Recently, I haven't been enjoying anything that has to do with pairings and/or romance in Yu-Gi-Oh. When I come across something like fanfiction or a RPG involving that, I click the back button... but occasionally I take a look out of morbid curiosity because I, all right, I'm masochistic and just have to know what's going on with whatever it is. ( Cut due to lengthy ramblingCollapse )
Though, I'm glad to see that a community like this exists! It's really hard to find a community that doesn't constantly promote pairings... >_
Hiya! *pokes everyone with a stick*
I recognize some people in here, and some of you guys might recognize me. I maintain straight_ygo
. I used to be pretty big on pairings back in the day, and lots of them, but now... not so much. XD In fact, aside from a little hinting at some of the canon implied ones, I'd rather not bother with it at all.
I... don't really know what else to say. >_> Other than to ask, is it SO AWFUL to like an asexual Seto, Yami Yugi, or Yami Bakura? I rarely ever see them.
A small message crossposted at fanficrants
'I have this message for those Seto x Serenity writers I have seen copying the plots of movies, therefore getting Kaiba OOC; stop it!'
Honestly, I've seen so many of these it's annoying. Feel free to apply to other pairings.
Juudai Yuki | Jaden Yuki
Asuka Tenjoin | Alexis Rhodes
Daichi Misawa | Bastion Misawa
Sho Marufuji | Syrus Truesdale
Ryo Marufuji | Zan Truesdale
Hayato Maeda | Chumley Huffington
Jun Manjoume | Chazz Princeton
Chronos de Mediz | Dr. Vellian Crowler
Read then, weep, then prepare yourself for the bad romance that will inevitably follow.
"I love you, Chazz."
"I love you too, Alexis."

Right, I was in a discussion earlier about the Set x Kisara pairing. We all know it's a fan created one, since at NO time did either of them.
1 - say I love you.
2 - kiss.
3 - she's dead anyway, so nothing COULD happen.
Also, Set x Kisara is a FANON pairing. Not once did they say they loved each other. I love Kisara as a character but the pairing itself is not canon.
This was the reply:It is? o.O It sure gave a vibe of being a pairing in the show. After all, Seth mourned her. That's not very IC for him, usually.
People can mourn for those they only just met even if closed off like Set is. Hello? I never knew any Americans and I mourned 9/11.
Why can't people just accept the fact boys and girls can be friends?
...Hi there. ^_^;
Although I've been a fan of Yu-Gi-Oh for a couple years now, I've mostly stayed away from the fanon, simply because I found most of it rather disturbing. I didn't understand why they would take the show's different relationships, something that was wonderful, or jagged, or heartwarming, and twist it into something nasty, unsettling, or just plain out of character. I even asked some of them why, but they just gave me shallow fangirl responses. So I just left them to their vices, and for a long time thought I was the only one out of the loop. And then yesterday I found you guys! =) I can't begin to tell you how happy I was to find that there were others out there who thought like I did. So my mind ablaze, I wrote this long rant about how sad the fanons of today have become. Sure, I'm singing to the choir, but hey - there's actually a choir now! XD
( ranting ruined my lunchCollapse )
Well, I can honestly say I didn't expect that rant to be so long. ^^;; And despite working on it for most of the day, it isn't nearly as well formulated or organized as I hoped it would have turned out. Ah well. Comments? Debates? More rantage? I'm all ready to boogie. ^-^
I wrote this a long time ago and thought it deserved a place here, since it's not a romance or yaoi (thank God) at all. Bear in mind its old so some of it may have been in my old days, lol. I've improved since then, and it IS fluff.
