( Day 29 - What ship had the best proposal? [title should have given it away] )
THE END IS NEAR:
# Day 30 - Your favorite ship forever and ever and ever!
This question makes me laugh because there are so many answers I could put here. I guess I could have been predictable and answered Kyon/Koizumi, Shinagawa/Izumi, Zoro/Sanji, Roy/Ed, KakaIru, et cetera, but I chose this one because even the staff made fun of this pairings' popularity. Also, I hate one of the characters in this pairing, but in terms of the pairing itself, I don't actually hate it so much as I don't understand its wildfire popularity. Which is different from the other pairings that I listed above, more or less. -_-
( Day 28: A pairing that you will never understand? [I smile every time I see the LOVE statue outside my work because of Episode 24.] )
I feel like my answer to every question in this meme was either a HELL YES or a SHIT NO, with no middle ground. Good job, meme creator.
( Day 27 - A pairing that you loved and ended up hating? [Everything will be all right... if by "all right" you mean "I'm my own father"] )
( Day 26 - A pairing that you hated and ended up loving? [The only things I watch on TV are procedurals and sitcoms.] )
愛 の メッセージ
つまり： ヤバイ何これ禿げ萌え過ぎて 死んだ
( Day 24 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out badly? [Rocks fall, everyone dies... if only.] )
tl;dr continuation of meme:
( Day 25 - A pairing that was/would-be adorable, but could never work out? [my #1 non-canon pairing, let me show them to you] )
This is either a bitchy answer or an answer FULL OF WIN, depending on what you ship.
( Day 23 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out great? [HOW DARE YOU!] )
My coworker and I flipped the shit today when we realized 1990 was twenty years ago. Apparently we were both calculating years of service for a client on the assumption that the world ended in 2000.
Anyway, I am currently on an "extended hiatus" from Detective Conan fandom because of this pairing (more or less). I can't tell if a lot of people are happy with the pairing, but clearly I'm not.
( Day 22 - A pairing you hate and no one else understands why? [The series alone should have given this away.] )
GUYS little!America referring to big!America as "United States" ["gasshukoku"] is unexpectedly moe! Though I wonder how big!America would refer to little!America. Wouldn't calling him 13 Colonies [I guess "shokuminchi" or "higashibu 13shuu no eikoku-shokuminchi" if you want to get all technical about it] kind of rankle big!America? The doujinshi in question handwaved it, but I kind of want to see that in English fic. >_>
( Day 21 - A pairing you like and no one else understands why? [Pleased to meet you.] )
Oh, and if I were to repeat fandoms: jiji-mago and/or supersize-conbi, Franky/Robin, KoiMiku, and Kurogane/Tomoyo would probably count as "ships that no one understands". Just sayin'.
Dear Local Post Office:
If you leave a pink slip on my door telling me a package will be there after 1PM, and then tell my representative to come back after 4PM without even checking whether the package is in the back or not
you rude bastards, my representative will not be very pleased with you. And they'll probably take out your incompetence on me. So please do me a favor and humor my representative, since it's probably in everyone's best interests that I myself am unable to visit you and give you a piece of my fist in your face mind. Oh, and handing them only one package when they come back at 4PM, when you and I both know I have two packages ready for pick up? Not cool.
We've been dancing to this same tune since 2003. Y'all already know I import a ton of stuff; if you're gonna charge me customs, just do it already so I can have my sweet sweet crack.
Speaking of people who should just do it already:
( Day 20 - The "can't stand the sexual tension anymore" pairing? )
In short, I blame this pairing for everything.
( Day 19 - A pairing you've rooted for since the beginning? [But... but why?] )
There's actually a ship that I think is slightly (slightly!) cuter than this one but since I'm sticking to the no-fandom-repeats rule I'm going to talk about this one instead. Also, third shojo manga ship in a row, what what.
( Day 18 - What is the cutest pairing? )
( Day 17 - A pairing you thought would never work out, but did? [putting less and less effort into this meme] )
Is anyone else ridiculously happy with the last couple of chapters of One Piece? Oda-sensei, never leave me.
So far, all the pairings I posted about for this meme are pairings that I like (or love, even, if Day 08 has anything to say about it) in fictional media I enjoy (well, except for yesterday which was in ~*REAL LIFE*~).
This day is the exception to that rule.
Today, I'm going to talk about a pairing that I loathe in a work of fiction that I read and hated.
And if someone comments "Hey, I liked this pairing!"... I'm going to judge you. A lot. At the very least, I will point you in the direction of some books about healthy relationships and maybe even *GASP* feminism, and then back away from you verrrry slowly. (And I used to read shojo manga like it was my job, so that's saying something.)
(Speaking of tattoos, there's a Hetalia doujinshi I'm interested in where the "plot" revolves around a tattoo on UK's lower back. I'm from Jersey so naturally I find this hilarious despite the "seriousness" of the context. ARTHUR WITH A TRAMP STAMP BRB LOLING FOREVER)
( Day 15 - What is your favorite real life pairing? [spoiler: I don't have a RealLife!OTP.] )
Long story short: this was a stretch. Also, I need to read more.
( Day 14 - What is your favorite book pairing? [90s throwback part II, electric boogaloo] )
Speaking of which, I never thought I'd say this when I was there, but I miss Miami. There's probably some fucked up meta I could write about regarding the fact that the times I had the most fun in college were when I wasn't actually within a 500-mile radius of campus, but that's neither here nor there.
( Day 13 - What is your favorite television pairing? [it's getting harder to come up with witty comments] )
Event-planning wise, this probably wasn't the most awesome sauce wedding out there, but it made for a satisfying conclusion to a series I'd been following for a while and it was the first wedding scene I thought of when I saw the question, so yeah.
( Day 12 - Who had the best wedding? [if the title didn't give it away, nothing will] )
So if you asked me what two movies would I watch and NEVER GET TIRED OF EVER, my first answer would be Terminator 2: Judgment Day. And since there aren't any romantic pairings in that movie (unless you count That Deleted Scene, which, while a nice bonus, isn't really up there on my pairings list), then I guess I'm just going to have to go with my second answer instead. What it lacks in the firearms department, it makes up for in romance, more or less. @_@
( Day 11 - What is your dream pairing? [Times are hard for dreamers.] )
Yeah, I suppose not. Fandom's loss!
