Im just a person who likes to read fanfics, I like looking at the creativity of others, I would write but Im busy a lot. I read anime fanfics, mostly about One Piece, Naruto and Fairy Tail. I like reading anything really, I like humorous stories, but I read mainly romance because love is such a beautiful emotion, I just really enjoy reading about it :)
I am a big shipper of numerous pairings!
One thing I wanna say is - why the immense hatred for any damsel character? I see it as justification for bashing everywhere, a character whos a damsel is immediately a bad character? and its a bad thing? cliche? The thing about cliches is that they are unavoidable, you just have to be creative when using one. I hate to see everyone avoiding whats often a common element in stories just because they arent willing to rehash it. I say this because the opposite of this is becoming equally cliche to the point of absurdity, the angsty and/or badass female character, I actually hate this more because characters get the badass tag slapped onto them and no more depth is added, so many flat characters!
I suppose it wouldn't do any harm to list the pairings I actually like :)
Luffy x Meat (funny as always, not a real pairing though, but somehow any fic to do with the Strawhats is missing something if meat and luffy aren't mentioned. Silly? Yes, but thats why you love Luffy in the first place xD)
Zoro x Nami (When I watched the anime I wondered just why stuff just happens whenever Nami and Zoro are in a scene together. Id like to think Nami wants Zoro to pay attention to her, like his debt. The pairing isnt canon, no canon pairings in OP, but I don't care. The couple is very beautiful and I adore their dynamic, Ive read a lot of good fanfiction about this couple. Im sad they get less interaction after the timeskip though)
Franky x Robin (Didnt really know all that much about this pairing at first, but I think they make an interesting couple, albeit a strange one xD)
Naruto x Hinata (I only thought it was only cute at first, until Hinata stood up to Pain in the anime/manga, I thought that was both awesome and heartbreaking, the development between them is also staggering. I get angry at the Anime because it caters to NaruSaku a lot when that isnt the case in the Manga, that pairing frustrates me. Recently Hinata and Naruto have been teased by Kiba, Hinata is dedicated to come out of the war side by side with Naruto and it seems she is currently on her way ;D)
Sasuke x Sakura (I think Sakura's dedication to Sasuke is heartwarming, the main moment I can recall for this pairing was when Sasuke left the village, he claimed to have forgotten something Sakura had mentioned to him, then teasingly quoted something from that conversation, he also thanked her before leaving the village, which im pretty sure he wouldn't have done to anyone else. If you look at their moments in the manga you can tell why the pairing is loved so much. For me Sakura is the person who can save Sasuke from loneliness and give him happiness. Even though Sasuke is kinda evil now I think something could happen eventually, but its up to Naruto now. Though recently it seems Sasuke has been reprimanded by Itachi, he seems to be on course for redemption and on his way to the war, and hopefully Sakura can get some resolution with him ;D).
Shikamaru x Temari (At the start of the series I didn't really think much of Shikamaru, in Shippuden he is simply a cool cat and such an awesome character to watch. I like all the little interactions between Temari and Shikamaru. It could be canon depending on how you interpret all their interactions, especially at the start of Shippuden when Naruto assumes they are a couple. Recently it seems they are kind of 'buddies' in the war and they get a whole LOT of interaction)
I cant say im big on the ShikaIno pairing, I dont oppose it but I find the pairing boring. Personally I think they are too different to be more than friends, I think Ino is better with Sai (although I dont really like him) or Kiba (they are similar so I think they go well).
Natsu x Lucy (I think their interactions are funny, plus they are already so close to being a couple its unreal. Natsu is also very protective of Lucy, maybe a little too much?)
Gray x Erza (In canon Gray seems likely to be with Juvia, and Erza with I dunno since Im not far in the anime, though Ive read alot about Jellal, and I dont really like him. I guess the main reason why this is my favourite pairing in FT is the past between these two, and the way they act around eachother sometimes. From their past I could easily see them being a couple, so much potential wasted.)
Noctis x Lightning (Crossover pairing, I know its basically a crack pairing, I cant help but feel that they seem perfect for each other actually I cant really say that since we don't actually know what Noctis is like yet but from what I have read from this pairing, I am sold, Noctis is usually portrayed as shy and awkward albeit cool, while Lightning is hard as stone, but the character dynamic is wonderful to read about. Its also interesting because Lightning doesn't really have any 'other half' like other FF heroes, the fact that they are supposedly in the same Universe makes it interesting no? (dammit FFv13 is FF15 now) The quality of Lightis fics is also strangely very high.
Although I dont find Lightning to be a very good character at all - I found her to be a rather flat character in the games, plus im not fond of SE milking her for money - Im think fanfic writers add good depth to her).
Naruto is my favorite anime, my favorite character from Naruto is Sasuke.
I am very Anti-NS - not for petty reasons, but for the nature of the fandom for this pairing, or at least the parts of the fandom I have seen.
- NS wants Sakura to sacrifice herself for Naruto... Hinata does it instead
One thing I must clear up, I think many of the fictional characters I read about are attractive, but I think Perverse Sexual Lust (tvtropes) is a little creepy. Personally I think it becomes a little unhealthy when it changes ones perception of real life standards, I see a lot of FF members dote on and openly state things about their favorite characters (often fangirling), I know I cant possibly change anything, I just want to say that it unsettles me a little.
I have a relative who seems to have an addiction to hentai pornography and I can honestly say that I find him insanely creepy.
