Maybe I’ll think of a real subject for this some other time

Lesta went up to Aurora to try to cockblock the Westboro Fuckers Cult in their protest of the memorial service. I would have gone with him, but when he called to see if I wanted to I wasn’t home from my excursion with Zombie Girl. ZG and I would have just gone up and met him there, but we had with us her mom, who needed to go home, which is about the same distance in the opposite direction.

You know, whenever I hear about those monsters popping up somewhere, I honestly wish I did believe in Hell, because it would be nice to think of them writhing in agony for all eternity. OK, well, no. Forever is too long even for disgusting things like them. But for a while, maybe…

Anyway, on a less wretched note, how about pairing meme. Day 4: Favorite crack pairing – Hiko and Katsu

(Determined to have illustration for all of these, I have sketched a picture of this nonexistent pairing. Go me.)

This was a hard one. Since I rarely consider pairings bizarre as long as they’re written convincingly, “crack pairing” usually just means, to me, “a couple that never actually met in canon.” And as such, Hiko and Katsu are a good option (though, if we’re getting into that sort of pairing, I’m also fond of Hiko and Saitou or Hiko and Aoshi or Aoshi and Katsu or Katsu and Chou, or…….)

OK, yes, Hiko would drive Katsu up a wall on a daily basis. But let’s be honest… Hiko would drive anyone up a wall on a daily basis. And I don’t even know that the godlike sex would make up for it. But we look on the bright side and wish them well nonetheless.

The reason I go for these guys together is that they’re both artists in half their lives and violent in the other half; I can really see them connecting over that. Also, just logistically, I can see Katsu living in Kyoto and continuing his newspaper and only seeing Hiko on weekends or something, which would undoubtedly help him get driven up a wall less frequently. And their involvement might force Hiko to start caring again about current events in the country instead of trying to ignore everything up that mountain of his.

I’ve only got this pairing going in one story I’m writing… and by “going” I mean “they’ll hook up near the end.”

Oh, yeah, also. Totally unrelated. I am up to part 33 of Plastic, so that’s a third of the way done!! ^__^

  1. must sketch more.
    pure ponderance: why do people enjoy discussing bad things in great detail, but seem content to just smile and say “that was awesome” for good things?

    1. I’m pleased with that sketch. It doesn’t look all that great, but for a quick sketch drawn entirely in a moving car, it’s not too bad… and RK fans might even, with some effort, recognize the two characters without prompting!

      As to your ponderance… dunno. Tolkien described that phenomenon as a strange thing, but didn’t offer any explanation either XD

  2. I found that category to be one of the hardest. I’m not really a crack pairing kind of gal. (I define crack pairing the same way you do.)

    Good job, Lesta! I hope a lot of people turned out to stop those crazy bastards.

    1. Seriously, how else would you define “crack pairing?” The most common definition I see floating around is “a really weird pairing,” but that’s so very subjective… and, as I mentioned, I have a hard time labeling any pairing as weird if it’s written convincingly. Especially since I’m such a big fan of AU’s.

      I don’t think it helps that both of my primary fandoms are places where, in canon, there aren’t a lot of actual couples to begin with, but there are several sets of characters that fans have a tendency to pair off, so there ends up being this list of “canon couples” that aren’t actually couples in canon at all… so fans have an easy time declaring couples that go against that list “alternate pairings” or even “crack pairings.” Whereas I’m like, “Well, almost none of these characters are actually in romantic relationships, so none of them qualify as ‘alternate’ or ‘crack’ either.”

      OK, that was a long blah blah blah.

      Apparently the WBC hadn’t shown up at all before my brother left last night (though he got home after I’d gone to bed, so I don’t know the full story). But, yeah, good jobon him going!
