Don't mean to burst your bubble, Iktomi, but I 'ship Jack Harkness/Ianto Jones from Torchwood and find Kunzite/Zoicite from Sailor Moon to be rather cute. Don't forget Shinji/Kaoru, my first slash ship. (I actually refer to Kaoru throwing the fight, or Mara throwing the fight in Sacrifice, or Jacen throwing the fight in Invincible as Tabrising.) My first live=action slash ship was Sean and Craig from Degrassi: The Next Generation. (Sean has some Stu traits, but he's actually well-written, which is more than I can say for 99% of the show. He's only really annoying in season 6, when he's the hypotenuse in a yandere love triangle.* The Sue is Emma. The other yandere is Peter.) *God help you if two yandere fall in love with you at once. She's related to tsundere, dandere, and kuudere, but if one of those skanks bothers you, I'll rip her heart out. Would Tahiri/Tenel Ka be 'hot'? Yeah, no denying. But also potentially good character development for the pair and some well-deserved happiness for the two as well. Agreed. They've both had a lot of pain. And yes, that scene with Ben and Tahiri in Invincible is one of the MANY reasons I hate Troy Denning's SW novels. All. Of. Them. [/quote] Yeah, I mean, Sherman Alexie does shota, and I read Sherman Alexie, but Alexie's shota is usually an actual rape as a metaphor for a metaphorical rape. (In "The Sin Eaters", the government forces a thirty-year-old Apache woman to sleep with a twelve-year-old Spokane boy. And it's awkward, not "hot".) And Alexie isn't writing shota in a children's franchise, except for that one (lampshaded) double entendre in The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.
