Yaoi/slash that BURNS.
I don’t mind the odd OOCness of certain characters, so long as I eventually understand the Why. But when a character I’ve seen ruthlessly maim/slaughter another apparently sentient and apparently intelligent being, and it isn’t his first time maiming/killing or his second time or even his tenth time, please, please understand that of course I’ll go WTF? ARE YOU INSANE? when the selfsame character starts crying and sinking into severe depression because the person he loves “doesn’t even know that he exists.” |
Yuu Yuu Hakusho Rant
Yuusuke is a delinquent. He smokes. He’s rude. He regularly skips class. He laughed at the prince of Spirit World, who had a influence over where his soul would go after death. He has the most fun when he’s fighting to the death. The one person he acknowledges, emotionally, as a parental/guardian figure in his life is also rude, is also tough as ***, and is also as socially stunted as him. When she died, he freaked. But he didn’t cry. That’s who Yuusuke is.
Just because, ZOMG, Kurama/Kazuma/Hiei/Koenma/Insert-Random-Male-Character doesn’t even knows that he exists does not mean that he’ll go home and cry himself to sleep. He’ll probably beat them to a bloody pulp until they do notice him or pretend that they don’t exist. Or just jump them. It’s Yuusuke. He’s the kid who grew up with a drunk mother and an addiction to adrenaline rushes. It’s Yuusuke, not you. mmk?
I realize that, in reality, when a boy falls in love with another boy, he automatically becomes the epitome of the stereotypical girl, because, hello, he just fell in love with another boy and that’s how you’re supposed to act when that happens no matter who you are…. Just typing that made me die a little inside. I hope you know that you just killed what me, Bad Author. And it hurts. It really does.
