Jr. x MOMO (Xenosaga) Squee! These two are just so utterly adorable as a couple, I can't help writing a story or two on them! Jr. can be extremely dense at times, but aren't all males? And that just makes it all the cuter!
Haji x Saya (Blood+) There's a lot of competition for my favorite pairing in an anime or game, but this is definitely among the top three. I love Saya and Haji- I can't exactly explain why they're so awesome as a couple, but they are.
Amon x Robin (Witch Hunter Robin) Awww, c'mon, how can you not like this couple? Yes, Amon can be an ass, and there is a rather large age difference, but so what? It's still frickin' adorable.
Inuyasha x Kagome (Inuyasha) Canon, overdone, overrated... say whatever you want about this couple, it doesn't take away from their cuteness! This will always and forever be one of my most favorite pairings!
Ayato x Haruka (RahXephon) This applies to both the manga and the anime- although I despise the manga (too freaking depressing). Haruka is just an all-around awesome character- she doesn't fight for the spotlight, she doesn't angst or complain about her life, and she does everything she can to help Ayato, even if it's in the shadows. How can they not end up together?
Naruto x Sakura (Naruto) Used to be my favorite pairing in Naruto, but it has died down as of late- but they're just too cute! I love Sakura after the time lapse (I'm not so fond of her in the first series) and Naruto's devotion to her is one of the most adorable things I've ever encountered.
Kyou x Tohru (Fruits Basket) These two are meant to be together, don't you think? She accepts him as he is, and he adores her (secretly, of course :3 'cause we all know Kyou would be all, "WHAT! FUCK YOU!" if someone ever pointed it out) for it.
Sano x Mizuki (Hana-Kimi) Sano's constant angsting over loving Mizuki is too cute, don't you think? They are so obviously going to be a couple eventually... whenever Mizuki figures out that Sano knows she's not a guy.
Kiba x Kagome (Wolf's Rain and Inuyasha) Probably the ONLY crossover pairing I will EVER support. Normally I hate crossovers, but the idea of Kagome and the WR characters is somehow appealing to me.
Shion x chaos (Xenosaga) Shion and chaos both kick ass- that's all I have to say.
Kite x BlackRose (.hack) Aww. Kite and BlackRose belong together, after all they've been through, don't you think? Their personalities offset each other so perfectly that they make an unbeatable team.
Howl x Sophie (Howl's Moving Castle) As if there's any other concievable pairing in this movie. It's just so cute!
Kiba x Sakura (Naruto) I really like Kiba for some reason. He's a secondary character, yeah, but he's still awesome. Somehow, I think he and Sakura would make an adorable couple if they ever got together.
Nausicaä x Asbel (Nausicaä) These two just belong together. I can't really name any precise reasons why, but Asbel's admiration for Nausicaä is so cute.
Van x Hitomi (Escaflowne) I'm not a huge fan of Hitomi, but the pairing is adorable.
Beast Boy x Terra (Teen Titans) I like Terra. I know there are probably more haters than fans of her out there, but I can relate to her-- a lot. Yeah, she screwed up, but she genuinely loves Beast Boy, and deserves a chance at happiness with him, don't you think?
Kazuma x Tsubasa (Kare Kano) I've found that this is really the only pairing in Kare Kano that I like. I don't know why they appeal to me as much as they do, but they're an adorable couple!
Haseo x Alkaid (.hack/GU) Awwww, c'mon, you gotta love Alkaid! She has so much more personality than most of the other females in this story- I'd really like to see her end up with Haseo!
Sasuke x Sakura (Naruto) I've actually become less and less partial to this coupling the more Naruto I watch and read. To put it bluntly, I think Sasuke is a psychotic asshole that doesn't deserve Sakura, but they can still be a cute couple if written in the right context.
Cyborg x Jinx (Teen Titans) I like Jinx. She's a cool character, and I felt really bad for her when Cyborg betrayed her. It seemed like she really, genuinely liked him, and didn't deserve to get hurt like she did. They make a cute couple, ne?
Ziggy x Juli (Xenosaga) To be completely honest, I enjoy the father-daughter relationship between MOMO and Ziggy that this pairing creates more than the pairing itself. I don't dislike Juli, but I don't really like her, either.
Neji x Sakura (Naruto) Neji is cool, and I often find myself wondering how he and Sakura would interact. I like the idea of them as a couple, even if it seems very unlikely.
Robin x Starfire (Teen Titans) Aw, so adorable. I love Star, and her devotion to Robin is beyond cute. Robin can be... well, a bit of an ass at times, but that's what makes the pairing cute, I suppose.
Pairing(s) I Loathe:
Inuyasha x Kikyou (Inuyasha) This pairing is first on my list for a reason. I despise Kikyou- she should burn in hell by herself.
Amon x Touko (Witch Hunter Robin) Gr. I dislike Touko for a number of reasons... the main one being that she seems so... self-absorbed. Amon is already an ass... he needs someone to balance him out, don't you think?
Kai x Saya (Blood+) I wouldn't say I loathe this pairing so much as that I dislike it. Kai just ticks me off in the early series, constantly bitching about not being able to do anything- although he does redeem himself after the time skip. Still... they're supposed to be brother and sister. Seriously.
Robin x Raven (Teen Titans) Okay, I like them both as characters, I really do, but they just don't belong together. They're both too dark and angsty... every relationship needs a little happiness, and neither of them are exactly a ray of sunshine.
Nausicaä x Selm (Nausicaä) I really don't like Selm. I really, really don't like Selm. He appears two books before the end of the series, says a few cryptic and vague words that somehow inspire Nausicaä to pull through, and suddenly they're a couple? No... just no.
Naruto x Hinata (Naruto) They're both cute, but quite honestly, I'm really not impressed with Hinata's so-called 'devotion' to Naruto. So she supposedly liked him all throughout their academy years, watched him, admired him- did she ever talk to him? No. Tried to be his friend? Nope. Stood up for him? Hell no- God forbid she do something she'd be looked down upon for! No matter how shy she supposedly is- through watching Naruto suffering all alone, don't you think she could have approached him, written him an anonymous letter, or done something kind for him, just once?
Haseo x Atoli (.hack/GU) I'm sure this has been said before by plenty of people, but I really, really dislike Atoli. No, I don't hate her, but she's so annoying! The idea of Haseo growing to love anyone that he disliked at first is cute, but Atoli just annoys the hell out of me.
chaos x KOS-MOS (Xenosaga) KOS-MOS is a kick-ass character, and I love her relationship with Shion and everyone else... but the idea of romance with her is just... wrong. If she shows emotion towards anyone, it's towards Shion, and that's definitely not in a romantic sense.
Kyou x Kagura (Fruits Basket) Truthfully, I dislike Kagura in general. She's so... well... irritating. Her fangirl-ish obsession with Kyou is annoying at best, especially when it's obvious that Kyou doesn't like her at all. I'm sure she'd be likeable in some way if the story developed her character at all, but it didn't, so she's not.
Beast Boy x Raven (Teen Titans) Once again, I love both of these characters, but they just don't belong together. What do people see in this pairing? And where the hell do people get the idea that it's canon?
Van x Meruru (Escaflowne) ...She's a kid. Do I really have to say more?
Ayato x Anyone who's not Haruka (RahXephon) Haruka is just too awesome and sweet for her not to end up with Ayato- I mean come on, she waited fifteen years for him under the pretense of a middle-school relationship that he didn't even remember! Asahina is a crybaby, Megumi is fickle, Reika is just... always the damsel in distress, and Quon... what the hell is Quon, anyway? She never makes any sense.
Shion x Allen (Xenosaga) This is probably one of the only canon pairings in existance that I hate. I adore Shion, she's awesome- but Allen bugs the hell outta me. He never does anything; he's hardly even involved in the main plotline. So he cares about her... cute, but utterly pointless, and it goes nowhere.
Kagome x Sesshoumaru (Inuyasha) Why is this so damn popular? They have nothing in common! NOTHING! Kagome belongs with Inuyasha, and that's the end of it, dammit!
Rubedo x Sakura (Xenosaga) This pairing... really bothers me. I really don't like the idea that he was with her first- especially considering it means he's only looking after MOMO because he promised Sakura. And the idea that he considers MOMO a sister... ick.
Hitomi x Dilandau (Escaflowne) There are so many things wrong with this... I mean, come on, what sense does this pairing make? They don't even interact in the story.
ANY and ALL YAOI or YURI PAIRINGS! This is just... ew. Why? Why do all you people seem to think guy on guy or girl on girl is romantic? I don't understand it.
Anywho... hello all o_o; chances are, if you're reading this, you've already read one of my stories. The first thing I have to say to you is... go back and review. I haven't gotten enough input on my latest stories to know if I'm actually doing well or not, and I really want readers' opinions. Anywho... yes, I haven't updated any of my stories in forever, and I know I'm lazy as hell. Just so you know, however- no matter how long it's been, I have no intention of leaving any of my stories unfinished. I have ideas, I just never have time to type them up. Don't worry, though, I don't plan on discontinuing anything that I'm working on.
Untitled (as of now): (Naruto) "As much as you wish things were all right, they aren't. All the wishing in the world won't change what I've been through, or what I've become. So stop deluding yourself into thinking that I will simply hand you forgiveness, because I have none left in me to give." Team 7 - Sakura-centric. Angst/Drama/Romance (pairing is undecided- likely SasuSaku or NaruSaku)
Hold Me Close: (Teen Titans) Sort of a sequel to 'No Regrets.' Terra awakens and is freed from her stone prison... but will the Titans ever truly forgive her? Or, more importantly, will she ever forgive herself? (I've started the first chapter, but I'm not happy with it, so don't be expecting this to start anytime soon.) Romance/Angst
Wish Upon a Star: (Xenosaga) A Shion x chaos story, inspired by 'Borne Up on Angel Wings.' (I have only a basic idea for the plot of this story right now, and I'm a bit too busy to work on it, so don't hold your breath for this one, either.) Romance
Ever Foward: (Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind) "Ever forward, my darling wind..." Nausicaä contemplates the meaning of her existance; or if she has one, now that the Crypt of Shuwa has been destroyed and the Great War is over. With the guilt of her sins weighing heavily upon her shoulders, will she ever be able to move on? (debating whether or not this will be a one-shot) Angst/Tragedy
As the Rain Falls: I know I promised chapter five really soon, but I just can't write a chapter that I'm happy with. I'm trying, I really am, but it's just not coming to me right now. I do promise you that I will finish this fic- no matter how long it takes, so just be patient.
Now and Forever: I know I haven't updated this in a while, but I'm concentrating harder on 'Behind the Smile' at the moment. Once that's finished, I will undoubtedly get back to work on this story. Don't worry, I've vowed never to leave a fic unfinished.
Behind the Smile: Heh, heh... er, sorry? I'm working on it, I promise... it will be here soon!
Catch Me When I Fall: I'm hoping this will be finished soon, but I have a gargantuan writer's block at the moment... I don't know when it's going to let up, but if it remains for much longer, I may just write a crappy ending. I won't leave it unfinished, I promise.
Go play Okami. Now.
