Hahahaha. This is going to be very graphic heavy, just so you know. Time to make up for lost time! I'll get to those Top 5 prompts later. For now, have the rest of these.


DAY 13 - BRAVEST SENSHI



Sailor Pluto. Specifically, from the manga. I don't know. All of the senshi are brave, but I always thought she was cool because she used an ability she had that could literally kill her just to save the world. Not that the other senshi warriors haven't sacrificed their lives before, but for some reason I always thought Pluto was the most courageous to me.


DAY 14 - FAVORITE VILLAIN



I was going to put Nehelenia, but I thought I'd feature Galaxia instead. She was a badass.


DAY 15 - FAVORITE ARC/SEASON



I always thought season three was the best one; same thing for the manga. Sailor Saturn's arrival and backstory was creepy and depressing, and it was nice to get to see some new senshi. Even though I have to be the only person in the world who isn't crazy about Neptune and Uranus.


DAY 16 - SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED IN THE MANGA THAT SHOULD'VE BEEN IN THE ANIME



Rei and Minako's friendship/secret romance. Need I say more?


DAY 17 - FAVORITE QUOTE


...idk. You got me.


DAY 18 - FAVORITE BATTLE



It was automatically cool because maybe I really love sword fights.


DAY 19 - FAVORITE MOVIE



The R movie is actually my favorite--not only for Mamoru/Usagi but OMG Rei/Usagi is in there, too--but I don't feel like digging around for anymore graphics, so I'll put the movie it's tied with: the S movie! Because cats falling in love is sweet? (Also, I took this from [livejournal.com profile] sammywhatammy because I'm too lazy to get graphics. LEAVE ME ALONE.)


DAY 20 - FAVORITE EPISODE



Because I really, really wish they hadn't butchered the hell out of it for the English dub. It was fantastic the way it really was until they decided to make it ~*kid friendly*~! Ugh. I am forever annoyed.

DAY 13 - FAVORITE TELEVISION PAIRING


I have no images, but I'm partial to Cory/Topanga from Boy Meets World. Actually, Shawn/Corey/Topanga is more like it. They totally became an OT3 at the end of the show. (Although I'm a little annoyed that Shawn and Angela broke up. They were cute!)


DAY 14 - FAVORITE BOOK PAIRING


No graphics, yet again, but I'll go with Henry/Claire from The Time Traveler's Wife.


DAY 15 - FAVORITE REAL LIFE PAIRING


Um. My parents? Honestly, I don't ship people IRL. That's just weird. And my little sister pairs real people off in bandom and I just don't understand it.


DAY 16 - ABSOLUTE WORST PAIRING


(Hot Gimmick scan from onemanga.com)

Oh, Lord. Absolute worst pairing. There's so many choices, so little time.

In general? Ships like this make me retch. I hate it when the boy pushes around the girl. I hate it when the girl can't define who she is without her boyfriend, and we never see her make her own decisions without her boyfriend telling her what choices she needs to make. I hate seeing any girl controlled by her boyfriend. I hate seeing the boy treat his girlfriend like utter shit, and she still loves him, even though she knows he's being a jerk. Most of all, I hate ships that reminds me of a bully and his victim rather than a romantic relationship. It's not love; it's abuse, and I'm never going to love ships that remind me of an abusive relationship.

I don't mind ships where the boy starts off by being a jerk as long as it's obvious the girl can stand up for herself and put him in his place, or change his ways. But when the girl never even gets to stand up to the boy and own that moment, and it remains the same from start to finish, then that's a deal breaker for me.

I suppose I should say that if genders were different but the dynamic was the same, would give me the same reaction, but it doesn't. Seeing the girl push around the boy aggravates me too, but I over-identify with naive, sweet, insecure female characters and the last person I want to see mistreating them is their own significant others. That and there's this underlying impression of sexism that goes along with it. It just pisses me off on a personal level.

Honorable mention(s): Naoki/Kotoko from Itazura Na Kiss, Curly/Rhonda from Hey Arnold, Edward/Bella from Twilight.


DAY 17 - A PAIRING THAT I THOUGHT WOULDN'T WORK OUT, BUT DID


(Artist unknown, but this is from Pixiv.net. Let me know if you know the artist!)


Mytho/Rue from Princess Tutu. I didn't think they'd actually end up together at the end--I was ready to relive the tragedy that was Nephrite/Naru and kept telling myself, "No, she's the villain and she's done villainous things to him, of course they won't end up together, but why do I want them to, ugh I hate the universe"--but, they did! It was a pleasant surprise.


DAY 18 - CUTEST PAIRING



Oh, hi there, tragic OTP. Go ahead and have your perfect first date before Slade comes along and ruins it for you guys. Now why don't you RIP MY HEART OUT while you're at it? :(


DAY 19 - A PAIRING I'VE ROOTED FOR FROM THE BEGINNING


(Moderator)

Dude, fuck Ichigo. Orihime has someone for her already.


DAY 20 - CAN'T STAND THE SEXUAL TENSION ANYMORE


(Artist unknown, but it's from Pixiv.net. Let me know so I can put proper credit!)


Roy/Riza from Full Metal Alchemist, or at least the manga/Brotherhood. The first anime can go fuck itself for taking away their badassness. Yes. That's a word. Seriously, though, WHY COULDN'T THEY MAKE OUT. UGH.

I am sorry, I was going to comment on Rei/Minako and the anime's utter lack of their awesome, but then you had to post that picture of the SEXY BAMFS, and I got lost.

Everyone in FMA needed to make out. I don't care if it was shounen, I want my makeouts.

Yarly. Although to be honest, I was happy enough to see Edward/Winry get their proposal, hugs, and babies. Really, I was. But no Roy/Riza makeouts? TOTALLY NOT FAIR.

So, three things:

Rei/Minako! ♥

I'm glad that Rue/Mytho happened too. Ahiru/Mytho would not have fit after all that happened.

I SO agree with you about Hot Gimmick type pairings. (Btw, that manga is the WORST EVER.) It is not cool for girls to be doormats and let their boyfriend make all the decisions! It is not cool for him to be a complete asshole yet still get the girl's love! It's creepy. It should not be presented as something positive. Ugh, fail. :(

Yeeees. Rei/Minako is impossible to dislike. ♥

No, it wouldn't have; after everything that happened, it would've felt...not wrong, but it wouldn't have been the proper ending to a series like it. And I really wanted Rue to be happy and to get the prince she fell in love with since she was a child.

It is not cool for girls to be doormats and let their boyfriend make all the decisions! It is not cool for him to be a complete asshole yet still get the girl's love! It's creepy. It should not be presented as something positive. Ugh, fail. :(

I agree so much! (Especially about Hot Gimmick. It's so ... ugh. It's so bad.) It's especially aggravating when the fail!canon specifically sets it up so there's excuses made for the lead jerk, like...secretly being a nice guy makes up for everything without him having to ever make it up to her. Just. WHAT IS THAT. It's one thing for the girl to help him change, but she shouldn't have to look past his issues and his atrocious behavior, and stay with him because she's too much of a doormat to stand up to him...and then have it presented as a romantic relationship. IT'S NOT.
