I do not update this thing often enough to make it very specific. Basically, my name's Mandi, I'm currently super obsessed with Captain Swan and Delena (and by extension OUaT and TVD) but this is and has always been my personal blog, which means it's multi-fandom and I post whatever the Hell I feel like. Sometimes I delve into fandom tags that I feel I've been neglecting, which leads to a brief posting spree before I get back to regular patterns. If you like my random rambles and occasional rants and things, feel free to follow!

I find Senshi/Shitennou shipping to be really problematic and not terribly interesting. But mostly I just wish it wasn’t in practically every fanfic.

submitted by anon

Why does everything have to be problematic?? That word is being overused.

I’d like to say that I think they mean the notion of pairing all the girls up with the Shitennou  is problematic in a way because of multiple reasons. (The usual round up: ‘The notion that the girls need a boyfriend/husband’ is usually top.)
It could also be problematic in the sense of -how- some people write them together or get them together that’s problematic itself. If it’s referring to the Anime(90s) it’s the erasure of a canonically gay couple (Kun/Zoi) which *could* be problematic as well.
But mah, I have no idea what the anon means by problematic, I can only guess that’s the reasons for it.  The word isn’t overused, it’s just not given any context in this confession.

Thing is, though, there is nothing inherently problematic with the senshi/shitennou ships because we simply have very little canon knowledge regarding them. All we have is one illustration, which could have pertained to their past lives, but never had any real bearing on the story itself. So there is nothing in canon that suggests anything problematic about those ships, even if they all eventually happened at some point in time.
Now, it is very well possible that some fanfic authors write these relationships in problematic ways. That happens a lot in fic, but it is down to the individual writer and has nothing to do with canon or with any other fic writer who probably writes the relationships vastly differently. And I mean, even the erasure argument is weak—the Zoi/Kunz relationship only existed in the original anime, and I know I’m not the only fic writer who gender-bends at least one (sometimes two—for me it’s Zoicite and sometimes Jadeite) of the Shitennou and still maintains the pairings.
I certainly get feeling annoyed if a fandom is oversaturated with certain ships (although a quick gander over at ao3 and I see a whole ton of fics without sxs as the base, and some with a mixture), but that’s still not something that can be helped. People write what they want to write, after all—if you want more non-shipping-centered fics, you should write them and add them to the pool! Maybe more will follow, you never know.

Photoset reblogged from Reasoning With Vampires with 231 notes

Not to mention the fact that Sam mauled Emily because she rejected him (because hello, he was engaged to her cousin and best friend!) and apparently that was enough to convince her that they really were soulmates? And then when Leah first transformed her dad had a heart attack and died because he saw her, and even after learning all of this Bella’s first instinct was that Leah was a ‘bitter harpy’ for still clinging to the past (cause that’s some shit you just get over, right?) and clearly we as the audience are supposed to agree with her.

And some people wonder why I have such a raging hate-on for Bella Swan.

raptorific:

Also, stop making feature-length Dr. Seuss movies. Hire a voice cast to do the dialogue and one actor to do narration, have them read the book aloud, and use that beautiful Dreamworks animation to bring the illustration to life. The whole thing will be like 25 minutes long max. Tag it onto the beginning of the other Dreamworks features (animated shorts have been at the beginning of movies forever, and it lets you compete with Pixar), most of which are an hour and a half long maximum anyway. 

Now, you have a two-hour moviegoing experience instead of a 90-minute one. People are unable to see the Dr. Seuss shorts without seeing your non-Seuss feature films, meaning you can simultaneously produce new content while financially exploiting parental nostalgia. Plus, in addition to a likely “best animated feature” academy award nomination, you’re also likely to get a “best animated short” nomination and you’ve got a guarantee that enough people have seen your short that it has a chance of winning.

And you’ll never have to add an hour of filler to a perfectly good Dr. Seuss book again. 

In essence, make more Suess stories in the style of Boris Karloff and How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and for the love of all that is holy never do another horrible Jim Carrey feature-length rendition again.
