I have a soft spot for fluff
I would much rather see a relationship explored from a maternal/paternal (etc.) point of view when appropriate
I am especially enamored by poetic prose and metaphorical character study
Similarly, I am drawn to stories with a distinct psychological or philosophical undertone (or fluff, because...fluff)
Ultimately, though I am striving to review more often, I will not leave feedback that is neither constructive nor insightful (quality over quantity)
Notes For The Yugioh Fandom
Though Pegasus Crawford is my all-time favorite fictional character, I can safely say that Yugioh is the only fandom for which I consistently read stories of any genre, involving any character or couple. The anime and manga explore numerous notions of truth, integrity, justice, love, (etc) that people make unique and profound in their own way. What was often cliché on screen has evolved into the greatest collection of poetic prose I have seen among hundreds of fandoms I browse. It's true that any character is in-depth and multi-dimensional at the hand of a good writer, but the intricacy with which people explore relationships in this fandom is indescribable. Authors in the Yugioh fandom have enamored me with their exploration of friendship, parental boundaries, romance, rivalries, the list goes on. I do browse other categories with hope and optimism, but this one has set the bar high.
Notes For The Harry Potter Fandom
I have been asked a few times, "As a Snape fan, do you ship him with Lily?" I have one long, rambling answer to that but the short version is yes and no. Realistically, Snape's love for Lily was everything unhealthy and possessive, though he had his reasons for latching onto her that way, and though the two were bonded from the first moment they met, I have doubts that a romance between them would've ended well. I will be very blunt and say I do not attribute the feeling entirely to Snape's character flaws, as I see them, but also, in part, to Lily's. Lily Evan's character has always bothered me because I can't help but feel she remained loyal to the wrong people. Snape lashed out in a moment of inexcusable cruelty, but James Potter, however young and ultimately innocent, was a bully and an instigator of problems. I've always found it hard to believe that Lily would've married James based on the little background we are provided, not to go along with the opinion that James "should have been Snape" and that Harry "should have been Snape's son," rather that Lily should have married someone of greater character than James if she was going to suffer so extensively from Snape's mistake. Many people say that James was inherently good because he died for his family, and while that is heroic, I know many more people who would die for their own flesh and blood, than would be mentally tortured for years, ultimately dying for a boy who was not their own. James Potter and Severus Snape were both, in their own way, childish, loyal, courageous, fierce, protective, and heroic, to say Lily picked the wrong man would be right and wrong. To say she (truly) forgives selectively would be more accurate.
