I'm being really lazy on these because my examples only just barely fit - neither of these is something I do very much of. Not even bothering with cut-text, that's how lazy I'm being.

Day 26 - A pairing that you hated and ended up loving?

Believe it or not, I actually really didn't like Squall/Rinoa the first time I played Final Fantasy VIII. This is partly because it's not the best-developed pairing out there, partly because some of the most brilliant bits of characterization are buried in subtext and take some reading between the lines, and partly because I was like eighteen and pretty dumb. What can I say. On replay, though, as I actually started reading into the text a bit more, I warmed up to the characters and the pairing quite a bit.

There's also Aya and Asami-sensei in Weiss Kreuz Gluhen; on first watching I was worried they were going to send Aya spiraling wildly out of character, but they didn't, and on repeat viewing I think the characters are really cute together. But I don't actively ship them because shipping in Weiss Kreuz is a lost cause.

Day 27 - A pairing that you loved and ended up hating?

This is the closest I can get to an example for this one: for about half a minute when I saw the first season finale of Avatar, I kind of thought Zuko and Katara could be an interesting pairing (although Aang/Katara was obviously being set up at the canon ship). This never panned out into anything, and while I don't hate the pairing, I no longer see any potential in it.

The questions. )
joiedecombat: (*snf!*)
Yeah, I'd have been shocked if I'd gotten through the rest of this meme on schedule.

Day 25 - A pairing that was/would-be adorable, but could never work out?

You liar. You said we'd meet again. )

The questions. )
joiedecombat: (conflict)
Day 23 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out great?

Will you be my manager? )

Day 24 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out badly?

Fire, Murrue Ramius! )

The questions. )
joiedecombat: (teasing)
Shockingly, I've gotten behind on the meme again. Oh well.

Day 13 - What is your favorite television pairing?

Okay I'm getting a little lazy on this one. )

Day 14 - What is your favorite book pairing?

And this one, too. )

Day 15 - What is your favorite real life pairing?

I really don't do this, so I'm clear for today, and that catches me up. At least for the moment.

The questions. )

Day 11 - What is your dream pairing?

You know, I've thought about it but I don't really think I have one of these. Or at least, I can't think of anything that I'd really qualify as a "perfect" pairing - there are too many different kinds that I like, and even with my favorite pairings there's usually something that could have been done better.

Or maybe it's just that I'm having trouble parsing the question. Anyhow, skipping this one and moving on to the next.

Day 12 - Who had the best wedding?

'Would you throw yourself in front of a maxibus for me?' 'Absolutely. They don't go very fast.' )

The questions. )
joiedecombat: (Mwu/Murrue)
Day 09 - The most believable relationship?

I didn't expect to be asked that now after all this time. )

Day 10 - Why aren't these two married in real life?

I generally just don't take much interest in actors as opposed to the characters they play, or in what they do or what they're like when they're not pretending to be someone else in a work of fiction. So this one's easy: don't know, don't care, I'll resume providing actual answers with day 11.

The questions. )
joiedecombat: (Toward the Terra)
Day 07 - The most heartbreaking scene?

You feel sorrow for me... )

Honorable mention to the entire Armageddon book of Odin Sphere, which I have just gotten to. Aaaaaargh. x_x

The questions. )
joiedecombat: (Rinoa)
Hi, it's that pairing meme that [ profile] annwyd is doing. I'm stealing it from her for lack of any other LJ content to post right now. There are other answer-a-day memes out there, like the one you fill in with information about yourself, but I'm not interesting enough to have enough stories about my own life to fill an entire meme, so here you go.

Also I should note that my opinions on "favorite" and "most" anything tend to vary from day to day and sometimes hour to hour. Assume that "right now" is tacked on to all headings except where otherwise specifically noted or generally nonsensical.

Day 01 - What is your current favorite ship?

I would like her to love me. )

The questions )
joiedecombat: (Squall/Rinoa)
Have very ambitiously signed up for a Squall/Rinoa [ profile] ship_manifesto.

TLDR likely to ensue.
