Let's Take The Fandom Back! ><

Ohno.jpg

Note: This contains plenty of Sessh/Kagome bashing. You were warned, don't read it if you don't like it, and don't complain if you DO read it.

I noticed the number of generally poorly written Sessh/Kagome fanfictions are creeping dangerously close to the number in the Inuyasha/Kagome section. Sure, number doesn't make up for how well written most of the Inuyasha/Kagome is, but it's depressing to see that such a horrible (In my opinion, don't complain) pairing has such a large fan base putting out such bad stories.

We need to start putting out some stories and take back the fandom... Oh, I remember the day (Years ago, when I was underage mind you.) where Inuyasha/Kagome flourished, and Sesshoumaru/Kagome was few and far between. Those days are no more my friends, and the Sesshoumaru fangirls are taking over. (Hell, my girlfriend prefers Sessh over Inuyasha, but at least she doesn't write about him. >.>)

Anyways, I'm going to start trying to finish the story I was working on, since I'm a lazy bastard. Have fun writing, I look forward to shooting down any 'flames' that come after this post.

I have a question about this. If the Sess/Kags stories weren't so poorly written, would you be more inclined to like them? I was just wondering.

I, personally, only really like Sess in a yaoi pairing. I prefer Inu paired with Kags.

I like Sesshoumaru, the character myself. But pairings... I don't see Sess with Kagome, he seems to be more with the girl Rin... not saying I'm fine with kiddie porn or underage sex... >.<; I'm just saying that his heart is for Rin alone. And Kagome... hell with Kagome, she annoys the hell out of me and I don't give a fuck who she ends up with, heck, I think she should be with the poor guy Hojo, he's the one who seems to show his affection and respect for the damn girl, Inu-Yasha can just go jump off a cliff and into hell for all I care! >.<

:( Wow.

Is this animosity toward Inu just because he never shows his affection for Kags? Or you just don't like him?

I actually agree with you, kind of. Inu and Kags both kind of annoy me in the manga and anime. But I love them in fanfics -usually AU/AR ones. I like seeing how far their personalities can be manipulated while still keeping them in character.

I think people are attracted to Sess because he's that strong silent type. I won't deny that he's damn sexy, but he's just a little too polished for my tastes. I like 'em kinda rough around the edges :huh:

I'm rough around the edges ;3

As to your question my answer is that Inu-Yasha not showing his affection/feelings or whatever you want to call the selfish bastards "emotions" but also... they annoy the hell out of me! XP

I like Sesshoumaru because of... uhm... hmmm..... :think: actually... let me get back to you on that >.<; But really, I just like the bad guys for some reason... such as Vergil in Devil May Cry or Gaara from Naruto (though Gaara is now good soo... w/e) ANYWAYS.... >_<;

I'm not a 'Inu-Yasha' fan so maybe I shouldn't have a say in this but, thats just how I feel about it. I used to be a fan way back... until the damn lady Rumiko kept going on and on and on with the story and not sticking to it! It's like another Dragon Ball Z, except... for GIRLS! D<

no offense ladies.... ^^; ...but its TRUE! D<

:lol:

Bad guys in anime are usually just freakin' cool. They always get the neat outfits and the badass weapons...

I think having been a fan means you can have an opinion. I stopped watching the Inuyasha Saga after episode forty or so, just because I got bored. And you're right -it is like Dragon Ball Z for girls...ugh, couldn't stand DBZ ^_^

My affections for Kags hooking up with characters is all over the place...

I love her with just about everyone!

Maybe it's because I just love all the sexy demon boys taking off their cloths for her...

Claws, fangs, puppy ears, tails, natural tats, oh I could go on and on...

Mmmmmm.... I wish it was me they were stripping for... ~sighs~

Yeah... you would like that! Vergil is a half demon. He's far more sexier than Inu-Yasha or Sesshoumaru! >D

<has a pic of Vergil as their pic

And sense I seem to look like him... I guess... I could strip for you~! ;3

I may read them to an extent.... Yes, if they were well written I might read them to an extent.

But I still wouldn't read a lemon/lime with them as the pairing... I read a well written Inuyasha/Kagome/Sesshomaru once.... I actually felt dirty while reading it, it was that wrong.... And this will sound bad, but I think that 99.9% of the readers for the Kag/Sess section, are women who are fangirling over Sesshomaru.

On another note, I didn't know this thread had been so active. xD I thought it just got buried under all the Harry Pothead spam.

I'd help you take the fandom back, since I will only write Inu/Kag fics, but I only come up with stories for them once every other year <_<

I agree with you about the readers probably being fangirls for Sess. Like I said, I see the attraction, but I'm not so much a fan. I don't feel quite as...passionate? about it as you seem to :rofl: I'll take a peak every once in awhile, but I'm not really curious about Sess/Kag pairings usually. But, that's mostly because his character is already set, for the most part, and he's too...polished. For me, writing him just isn't as fun, so reading about him (especially with strange pairings...and, yeah, I consider him with Kags a strange pairing), just doesn't interest me.

Inuyasha has way more potential for exploration as far as his character is concerned, just because, in the anime and manga, he's younger. Writing him older, to me anyway, is fun because I can pull on the things from the anime/manga to build on.

Also, Inu/Kag fics just plain do it for me...so there's that :o

Yeah, but write anyone OC enough and they will make a match with someone they ordinarily wouldn't in the canon story.

I don't mind a little OC. In fact, I think it's necessary if the author has made the characters older. But extreme changes in character annoy me.
