Alright so, it seems to be a trend that authors talk about themselves and their fiction-related opinions, so I guess I could add a little blurb.
I'm a 25 year old female, and that's all you need to know about that.
I am primarily a Revolutionshipper. There is something thrilling and scandalous about the relationship between Yami Yugi/Atem and Téa, considering that its inevitable failure and unsustainability had basically been preordained by fate itself; though it sure didn't stop the creators from teasing the hell out of it anyway. It makes for a very compelling, emotionally-tearing subplot that the writers completely skimmed over for some reason. Also, this could have added huge dimension to Yami's/Atem's character--you really get to know someone on a whole new level once you see how they deal with romance. The DOMA/Waking the Dragons arc immediately comes to mind. So opportunities passed up. Okay... stopping this before it becomes a full-blown rant.
While Revolutionshipping/Vanishshipping is my focus, I do enjoy well-written stories that entertain other pairings (or no pairings at all, of course). I happen to think Vaseshipping (Atem & Mana) is pretty adorable and sustainable for many reasons. Peachshipping (Yugi & Téa) is great, too, and I have a special respect for it because it is the most canon, although I don't find it too believable unless it includes the conflict that Revolutionshipping presents (which is also canon) or that it takes place post-canon. Regalshipping (Yami & Mai), though a bit of a stretch, is fun to read here and there too, especially when the author takes the time to apply sound logic to their compatibility and play with their unique flavor of chemistry. I definitely favor Polarshipping (Joey & Mai) more, but hey, that could've been another interesting love triangle conflict. What the hell, writers?
Puzzleshipping I have a hard time getting into (sorry guys!). The most "shippy" I get with it is mostly for cheap laughs and usually just a big gay joke. On extremely rare occasions I will come across a Puzzleshipping fic that I will read all the way through because it is written beautifully. What I do enjoy, however, is the incredibly unique and beautiful brotherly relationship Yami and Yugi share. They are soulmates in the most literal sense, but protective and loyal BFFs in actuality. The ying and yang element really work well for each other's development throughout the series. I feel like there could have been more content showcasing their bond, which would have added to the conflict involving their frustrating love triangle with Téa, or to the tearjerking effect of any time they were separated for an extended period of time, either of them came close to dying or losing their soul, and when Atem finally had to say goodbye. It's almost as if... *gasp*... they were trying to milk the franchise instead of telling a good story...
[Why I Use American names: Since I've been asked this a few times already, I use the American names (which sets me apart from most Yu-Gi-Oh authors), because I am living in America and for me personally, it's more appropriate for me to use. Plus, I always imagine the American voices when I write because it contributes to my descriptions and imagery. I just can't go without the American voice actors. Nothing is right or okay in this world if my Yami/Pharaoh Atem is voiced by anyone other than Dan Green. That being said, here and there I will pull from the Japanese anime and the manga continuities as well, if it suits the story.
I really don't enjoy bashers. Please do not bash on my profile or stories.
