I'd warn for spoilers, but let's face it: I'm probably doing you a favor by spoiling this series for you if you're lucky enough to NOT have wasted your time reading this manga.

day.27 - A pairing that you loved and ended up hating?
even pretty art couldn't save this love story
Syaoran/Sakura [Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE]

I want to make it clear that I love the Syaoran Li/Sakura Kinomoto pairing in Cardcaptor Sakura; they were my other contender for Day 18 and are definitely heavy-hitters for My OTP of All Time. I enjoyed how their relationship developed, tsundere!Syaoran and tennen!Sakura were fricking adorable, and the ending was warm and fuzzy and pretty good as far as shojo endings go.

Then CLAMP drew this clusterfuck of a manga called "Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE" and completely stomped on my shipper heart. The story was so convulted and terrible that it managed to kill almost all love I had for CLAMP as storytellers, but the number one crime that TRC committed was that it connected TRC!Syaoran/Sakura to CCS!Syaoran/Sakura... by making TRC!Syaoran the clone of the son of CCS!Syaoran/Sakura and setting him up with an alternate-dimension version of his own mother.

What the shit, CLAMP. 

The only justification I can come up for TRC's existence is that TRC is probably CLAMP's way of rick-rolling all the disgruntled X/1999 fans. (Yeah, I went there.)

# Day 28 - A pairing that you will never understand?
# Day 29 - What ship had the best proposal?
# Day 30 - Your favorite ship forever and ever and ever!

Total cluster fuck. Couple of years when I had NT left to spend at the airport I actually bought a couple volumes of Tsubasa. So ashamed.

Here's a question: Is there anyone you like Touya with in CCS?

I made the mistake of buying 4 of the hardcover Japanese volumes and 8 of the English releases... I ended up selling them, of course.

Touya: I'll ship him with pretty much anyone except for his dad (I guess Eriol counts as this too) and his sister. I wish CLAMP had gone with the "Tomoyo has a crush on Touya" route, but I liked Touya/Kaho and Touya/Yukito too.

Don't know if you read any, but a few friends on my f-list and I are pretty much responsible for all the quality Touya/Tomoyo+Kaho+Nakuru fanfic out there (and the Sonomi/Fujitaka). If you're interested I can link you.
