I See What U Did Thar

Post by VIII Redeta on Sat Nov 14, 2009 9:25 am

Yaoi. Complaints? It's marketed towards young women, so I want to know what the men of this forum think. Or if you're not a crazy fangirl, share your thoughts.

This time, I'll go first:

While I do enjoy the occasional "down and dirty" fic *cough* I think that's only because I'm friggin' human and that sort of *bleep* is a part of "growing up". Blasted hormones.

However, I don't run around screaming, "OMG HE SHOULD #@(&! HIM"

I'm more of a shounen-ai fan myself. At least then there's usually depth to the relationship. I think it's cute. That's why whenever I request to roleplay, I use the collective term the Japanese use: BL, or Boys' Love. Which, you know, encompasses both yaoi and shounen-ai. QUITE FRANKLY-- I rather not write anything beyond PG-15.

Do your little implied, fade-to-black moments, sure, but I'm not writing anything explicit for you, ya perv!

Ya, yaoi's awesome! I do believe I only watch shounen-ai. I find it damned near impossible to find any good anime for that genre. Most yaoi aren't teenager-based, much to my dismay.

How come no one ever tells me about good yaoi animes? Oh, right....

Well, I'll start watching that at my earliest convenience! ^^

Hahahaha~ Speaking of yaoi... a relationship between a human and an elf is highly possible in Dragon Age: Origins (regardless of gender.)

<3 Oh, Zevran! You devil! *swoons*

Huh, wow. I didn't think any game supported a function like that.

It's. Amazing.

Especially 'cause he's so flamin'-- Well... I think a quote would explain it better... Yet... out of context, it makes little sense. Bah. You'll see. I'll be RPing him in our roleplay~

Well, I'm watching it. I like it, for sure. So far, it's got a little humor in it, which is good. Although, I was never a fan of yaoi that worked on the basis of "Seme x Uke".

The idea that one should dominate the other is something I thought was shallow in any relationship. It's tolerable, but still. If there's any yaoi that has an Uke x Uke kind of thing, that'd be awesome....

You know, I'm not a big fan of "seme/uke" either. I like writing with suke, seke, whatever they're called these days. I'll let you know if I ever stumble upon a yaoi anime like that.

There are instances where one guy seems to be the pants in the relationship outwardly, but the roles get switched behind closed doors. Lol.
