It's Fandom Babbling Hour!

Welcome to my periodic fandom ramblings/rantings. Today, I'm going to talk about pairings.

...ha ha ha. I always talk about pairings. But today, it is not so much specific pairings as it is particular tendencies in pairings in Japanese (usually shounen) series.

Now, naturally this is a somewhat incomplete examination, as my knowledge of Japanese fiction is limited to the following: Bleach, most of Cowboy Bebop, D.Gray-man, Final Fantasy (IV through X-2), FLCL, Fullmetal Alchemist (anime only with some second-hand knowledge about the manga), Kingdom Hearts (which is somewhat "contaminated" because of the unmistakable Disney influence), Naruto, half of Samurai Champloo, Star Ocean 3, and Witch Hunter Robin.

So with this scant knowledge, I'm going to talk about types of pairings in various canons, most with a shounen lean. Then I'm going to talk about some mostly unrelated fandom stuff.
But I will spare the uninterested, for I am not entirely without mercy.Collapse )
And here's the mostly unrelated fandom stuff. It's about the tendencies of fans to glom onto sets of pairings. I call it "trifecta shipping." Fear my mighty abilities to pull terminology out of my ass.
blah blah fandomCollapse )
There, fandom babbling done for now. I will now continue to avoid doing anything of use and instead think about writing fanfic.
