Your OTP is my gastrointestinal ailment
Dear Fellow Fan,
You know I despise that pairing. You know I don't read het pairings in general. And I'm pretty sure you know I typically don't seek out smut unless it's (1) my slashy OTP or (2) it's crack.
So why, oh why, would you ask me to beta a smutfic with that pairing? Do you enjoy it when people drag their fingernails across a chalkboard? Do you revel in the sound of the fire alarm as it blares through the halls of your apartment building at 3 am? Do you lean back and smile blissfully when the baby in the seat behind you on a long flight starts shrieking? No? Well, now you know how I felt when your characters started to talk dirty and then proceeded to fuck. I seriously felt nauseous and could not make it even halfway through the fic.
Yes, the pairing is canon. Yes, I promised to try to build up an appreciation for it. But this is one of those times when I can't just jump into the swimming pool. Please let me wade in from the shallow end and get used to the water on my own terms. If you push me in, I will just end up puking up water and the contents of my dinner. And the result? I probably will never venture into the pool again.
I have no problem with you liking this pairing. I have no problem with you writing this pairing. But plz not to be inflicting it on me.
Current Mood: nauseous
|hulk smash. in response to the crazysmack claim, "The Japanese don't stutter!"
Dear delusional anime fans,
The Japanese aren't some austere, Spock-like race. They aren't perfect and they aren't holy and they certainly aren't infallible.
So please, when Naruto says "Sa... su... ke...", he is indeed stuttering. It wasn't translated wrong. Japanese folk stutter.
Hope your world isn't crashing down,chaimonkey Current Mood: Catty
Dear Samurai Champloo Yaoi writers,
Are you even watching the same show as me?
What about Jin, a man who was willing to help a woman he'd only known for a few days escape a brothel and her scummy husband or die trying, screams sterile and unemotional? He's reserved, yes, but that doesn't make him passionless just because he doesn't wear it on his sleeve the way Mugen does.
And I think that maybe you'd better dig a little more deeply into Buddism, those beads on his wrist are not a rosary.
Additionally? Mugen is *not* a samurai. He might kick ass with a sword, but he has obviously never been trained in any formal way and he can't read. Two big clues, yo.
And wow, I totally can't see either of them molesting Fuu. Just. No. Not even Mugen.
