Love does indeed know an age! [May. 19th, 2004|09:53 pm]
Yaoi/slash that BURNS.


[mood |puzzled]

This is something that has irritated me since I've become a little more involved with the Naruto fandom. These are thirteen year old kids. Yes, they do handle a lot of adult responsiblity being ninjas who are currently fighting to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their village.

However, Sasuke has bigger concerns on his mind than being seduced by Naruto. Naruto wants friendship and recognition; the poor kid hasn't even hit puberty yet! Three girls (who happen to develop faster than boys anyway) have crushes on some of the boys. It is not unusual that girls will have crushes and be attracted to boys at thirteen because, like it as not, almost all cultures prime girls from a very young age to expect marriage, love, children, and happiness. The same is not said for boys, who don't physically develop as fast.

But for whatever reason, thirteen-year-old Sasuke, in the average yaoi fangirl's world, finds true love in thirteen-year-old Naruto.

Now, I don't know about you people, but at thirteen, I didn't find true love. I didn't find the person I was going to marry and have a monogomous relationship with forever and forever, 'til death pries us apart with a sickle-shaped crowbar. At thirteen, most homosexuals who recognize they are attracted to the same sex are struggling with that issue; they aren't actively seeking their one true, eternal love. Realistically, few childhood sweethearts remain close enough and develop together in such a manner that makes them compatable.

I dunno . . . I think I need to make this rant a little more clear, but all I can really think is: For goodness' sake, they're thirteen-year-olds! Why are you writing true-love romances when one is still struggling to be accepted and the other is trying to kill his older brother?

PS: Naruto has shown more attraction to Sakura than he has Sasuke. Just because Sasuke looks better than Sakura doesn't mean she has less of a chance of their getting together than Naruto and Sasuke.

Kabuto/Hinata all the way!!!

Hinata has shown more attraction to Naruto who has shown more attraction to Sakura who has shown more attraction to Sasuke. Anyone of those relationships is more probable than Sasunaru. Or Itasasu. Or NaruGaa. Or NejiLee. Or KibaShino. Or ShikaCho. Or goddamned KakaIru. It disturbs me how much Yaoi is in the Naruto section of fanfiction.net. Not only because these characters are (mostly) all young. But also because of the number of plausible Het pairings. Not to mention the fact that none of the characters have shown any indication of being inclined towards the same sex.

Oh, and it doesn't help that 99% of the stories are so bad they'd make a baby jesus cry. I wouldn't mind so much if they were actually good. But most are written by 14 year olds whose mentality is i>Squeee!!!!!
Cute boys! Let's make them have sex!</i>

"Or goddamned KakaIru."

Would you believe that bad yaoi-slash is what has singlehandedly made me hate Iruka? It's true.

(Oh, and anyone who read this post and has a equal facination with Naruto badfic/gross fanart/badslash, I give you:



Okay, I'll stop spamming now... : /

I just don't get it. I can't quite figure out how this whole male, "I hate you!! I shall now string you up from the highest tree by your intestines and then dance around with insane glee!!!" somehow gets translated into "Squeee! I want hot sex where the codnoms shall break and against all reason and reality I'll get pregnant!!"

Maybe I missed some vital gene in the great Evolution Scheme that no one really knows anything about.
