Small Fandom Yaoi Part Two: Giotto x Tsuna – Hitman Reborn

Wow, I haven’t done one of these posts in a while. I figured it was time to do something for the yaoi fans out there again! Maybe I might be able to introduce you to a new pairing you can get hooked on! This is a very unconventional pairing and many may not like it, but I find it intriguing.

This is the pairing of Giotto and Tsuna from Hitman Reborn!

I know what many of you are saying, a relationship between them is not possible! And some are even questioning my reasoning for writing this post, but strangely, I love this pairing.
Don’t knock it until you try it!

Sadly, the only way I can get my jollies regarding this pairing is through fanart and fanfiction. There aren’t many (if any) doujinshi written about them as far as I know.

In much of the fanfiction I have read, they are mostly Alternate Universe (AU)-based. The plots of these fics generally cover Tsuna and Giotto being blood brothers who eventually end up in an incestuous relationship. I haven’t read one yet where Giotto was anything but the seme (it would definitely put me off if he were the uke, I mean would that even seem right to you?)
However, there are some AU-based fanfics where Tsuna meets Giotto for the first time and they aren’t related at all. But most of these fics portray Giotto as the perverted, tsundere seme that enjoys seeing our adorable little Tsuna cry.
The canon-verse based fics tend to make convenient use of the concept of time-travel. The mode of time-travel varies depending on the different plot lines, but the outcome generally remains the same: Tsuna goes back in time, meets Giotto face-to-face and love eventually blooms.
That was very watered down and bland compared to the stories I’ve read, but don’t let that stop you! This pairing is awesome and there are a few great fanfic authors who have done the pairing justice.

Until next time!

Small Fandom Yaoi Part One: Yoshino X Mahiro – Zetsuen no Tempest

Image

This is going to be the start of a series of rants I will have about pairings I think should have a larger group of fans. The particular pairing of Takigawa Yoshino and Fuwa Mahiro took me by surprise when I noticed not many people picked up on it.I realized this when I went to look for fanfiction featuring this pairing and only found a small handful. I talked to someone once about this pairing and they couldn’t see it within the realm of possibilities and I was like ‘What?‘! The anime screamed this pairing.

Image

I have the strong feeling that had Aika and Hakaze not been in the anime, Mahiro and Yoshino would have hooked up.

Mahiro always talked a big game, saying he’d kill Yoshino if he had killed Aika or how they weren’t really friends but associates with a common goal. However, there were times when Mahiro would just stare at Yoshino. All fujoshi know that look. That look says ‘if we weren’t on the screen right now, you wouldn’t be a virgin for very long‘. At times, even Yoshino looked creeped out by that vibe from Mahiro. To me, Mahiro’s obsession with Aika was a cover-up for his feelings for Yoshino. They even sort of stayed together and supported each other after they had saved the world. After Mahiro punched Yoshino in the face for dating his sister, they hung out in the kitchen with Yoshino acting like a little housewife. Not to mention the few times Mahiro caressed Yoshino’s face or invadeded his personal space for no apparent reason. No one can tell me that plot didn’t scream borderline yaoi action.

By the way, Yoshino is obviously the uke in this relationship.

So, I hope this has opened some fujoshi eyes and given rise to more fanfiction/fanart based on this pairing. Until then, here are some good illustrations I found to tide us over.

Happy Yaoi Day!!

In the words of one of my bestest buds, Happy Yaoi Day ya’ll! I had to come with a yaoi article for this momentous occasion. So, today’s article is going to be on SasuNaruImage….any fans out there?? Yes?? No?? Well, if you dislike this topic, I apologize, but for those of you who love it, READ ON! 

Within the past couple of months, I have binged on fan fiction about this pair. But I have to say, I am very picky when I choose which fanfics to read. I absolutely REFUSE to read any fanfiction with Sasuke as the uke in the relationship. Fans even had the nerve to create a nickname for that Sasuke: “Sas-Uke“, like seriously?? Not that I’m hating on those people, or trying to put them down in any way. You like what you like…I’m just saying it’s not for me. 

Now that I have disclaimed any hater-ation, I can rant on Sas-Uke. This version of Sasuke is whiny and totally insecure. He vacillates between different choices he wants to make and blushes entirely too much! Not very Sasuke-like behavior! I have found that from the show, Sasuke only really blushed around Itachi and it wasn’t for very long. Around everyone else he was cold, aloof and his attitude needed too much work. This is the stereotypical seme to me. Also, he was the one to leave the village…and who was it that followed him like a puppy on crack? Naruto. Naruto put bringing Sasuke back to the village before his desire to become Hokage, that takes real dedication and not something a person with Sasuke’s behavior could handle. This dogged pursuit for acceptance is what makes Naruto the perfect uke. Image 

I also favor the stories where the uke is the one being pursued in a romantic sense, like everything between the uke and his friend is completely platonic until the friend decides he wants more and jumps on him. So, I have enjoyed a great many SasuNaru fanfics in which Naruto has a girlfriend and is either dumped or played by her and Sasuke saunters in and claims Naruto for his own. There is some scuffling and protests on Naruto’s part, the denial that he isn’t falling for another man, and then acceptance rolls in when he realizes he can’t fight Sasuke’s persistence and determination to get his goods. Image 

So….for those of you who share my seme Sasuke passion, here are some links to some really good fanfics:

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9340764/1/Stranded

It will also be NC-17…eventually 🙂 YAOI WARNING

Sasunaru. KakaIru. Mpreg .

For all of you who don’t know, mpreg means male pregnancy will occur in the fanfiction. I do not suggest anyone under the age of 17 to read these fanfics. ^_^ Hope you enjoy!Image
