It's true.

I hate yaoi fangirls, and I am one.

You may be looking at me with tears in your eyes right now and saying, "Why Chopstick... why?!"  

Well, I'm gonna tell you why.


1.  You're just writing about them because they're hot.

Let's just forget that they hated each other in the game.  Let's completely forget that both of them were completely straight and had loving girlfriends in the anime.  And heaven forbid I bring up the idea that they were really "just friends" in the manga.  I'm not really bitching about drabbles or crackfics so much as I am the fifty-page-long epics that completely ignore canon.  

AND I MEAN COMPLETELY.

Rinoa was just so whiny and Squall and Seifer were just SO KAWAII, you HAD to kill her or maim her or turn her into a ditzy bitch that Squall despised.  I hated her too, you know, but I'm not willing to actually sit down and write her out of the picture in such an abrupt and unlikely way it could be considered a cop-out.  For gods' sake, have pride in what you're writing and give it some believability.


2.  You think Japanese is TEH BESTEST LANGY-WAGE EVAR.

I said the word "kawaii" up there, and actually died a little on the inside when I did.  I might use Japanglish in real life, but, uh, I use it with my Japanese friends.  It stays out of my fics and my posts.  Why?  Because I speak English.  I am making an English-speaking post.  When I write fanfiction, I write it for the English-speaking reader.  I think the most Japanese I've ever used in a fic was for my Petshop of Horrors fanfic, but those are honorifics, and I can't figure out a proper way to translate honorifics into English without them sounding competely retarded.

Just to be completely clear, I'll include a little example that shows exactly what I hate.  (And excuse any similarity to any actual fic; this is one of my own creation written just for this rant.  However, if there is a fic just like this out there... I'm sure I hate it.  A lot.)

"Oh, Yuki-chan, you're so kawaii!" squealed Tohma, eyeing the blond bishounen.

"Hn."  Yuki arched an eyebrow at the CEO.  "You baka.  Urusai..."

Tohma shook his head, leaning into Yuki insistently.  "Urusai nai yo!  Watashi wa aishteru!"


WHAT.  THE.  FUCK.

Okay, one: I've seen Japanese like this actually used in fics.  And it's shit Japanese.  Like, really shit Japanese.  As in, "I-just-kinda-threw-some-stuff-I-saw-together-hope-it-fits-teehee" Japanese.

IF YOU LOVE THE LANGUAGE SO MUCH, WHY DO YOU ABUSE IT?

Some people might excuse it by saying, "Well, they're still learning.  This is how they practice."  They shouldn't be using the goddamn language in fics at all, dammit.  There are forums and chatrooms and pen-pal programs and websites, ALL geared towards learning Japanese.  Welcome to the Internet, kids.  It's a wonderful place.  Lemme introduce you to my best friend, Google.


3.  You write shitty songfics.

Okay, so maybe this is just a generic gripe that can go for any fic at all, but it runs pretty rampant in yaoi too.  I hate songfics.  I don't really care if a certain fic was inspired by a song, or features the lyrics quoted (at most, a few lines) before the fic starts, but any fic that features the song prominently in its body just annoys the crap out of me.  It breaks up the flow of the fic pretty dreadfully and just distracts from it.  Are you trying to hide the fact tht you can't write at all by hiding behind Prince's "When Doves Cry?"

Sadly, I have seen perfectly good fics completely ruined by song lyrics randomly inserted inbetween paragraphs.  Sometimes I go to the effort to actually open the fic in a word editor and remove the lyrics, but I mostly just skip over any fic that has "songfic" in its description completely.


4.  You leave the WORST reviews.

"liek omg ^_____^  THAT WUZ SO KAWAII!!!1  i luv inuyasha an miroku 2gether, their teh best lol ^_^;; PLZ WRITE MORE!!"

You review everything like this.  EVERYTHING.  I don't care if it's the most typo-ridden, OOC, badly-written drivel that has ever graced the Intarwebnet, you think it is THE BEST THING EVER.  And you will add it to your favorites list and surely read it at least once a week, because it features your favorite unlikely couple and that's all that matters, dammit.  

Man, that ticks me off.

I've had the poor luck to run across terrible fics, then glance at the reviews and see eight pages of naught but praise.  If you're going to read a pile of shit fic, at least have the grace to know that's what you're reading.  If you don't out-and-out flame the author, at least give them what we of the more-than-one-brain-cell club like to call "constructive criticism" and tell them how to improve their fic.  

For the love of god, DON'T ENCOURAGE THE BAD WRITERS.  The type of yaoi fangirl that does is part of the reason why the rest of us have to muck through page after page of poorly-written crap just to find a single good fic.  

Actually, this goes for flames, too.  Often times this type of yaoi fangirl mindlessly flames any fic featuring a pairing she doesn't like, regardless of the actual fic's quality.  "NO U SUCK SESSHOMARU ONLY LUVS NARAKU!!!11  >_<"


5. Your fics are terrible.

This ties more into the ideas above, but I'd just like to expand on it a little bit.

Most yaoi fics are what I like to call Old Yeller fics.  They start out with a good idea, but after a while it just all goes to hell, and then it's time to take it out to the back yard and shoot it in the head.  Tragic, but necessary.

So sure, YaoiNoMiko0843 has this really cool idea... at first.  But then she lapses into five million cliches, makes it a rape fic, kills off all the main female characters, and caps it all off with a wedding... and my next gripe.


6.  You write MPREG.

FOR THE LOVE OF FUCKING GOD, WHY?

You DO know that the characters you're writing are MALE, right?  That they have penises and no tits, much less vaginas?  I could possibly understand something like this when you're dealing with a mysterious, alien/otherworldly character (like D from Petshop of Horrors, maybe), but Quatre of Gundam Wing?  

Why?

WHY?

"But they're in love and they need to have a BAY-BEEEE, Chopstick!"  you cry in protest, pointing to a very much in love Trieze and Zechs, with Zechs cradling his adorable hellspawn.

What the fuck.   Ever heard of adoption?  Men don't have the equipment for making babies, kids; I don't care how many times you watched Junior.  You're just writing it because you think that your adorable couple needs a baby to cement their relationship, and babies just have to come from the innards of one of them, or it just doesn't count.  I swear to god, you'd think that to become a Gundam pilot it was a prerequisite to have ovaries planted up your ass, these fics are so rampant in the Gundam (Wing) fandom.


7.  You don't care about spelling/grammar/typos/MY SANITY.

I kick myself every time I catch the slightest mis-type I made that goes unnoticed by everyone else, I really do.  You, on the other hand, don't give a damn.  This is made obvious by the fact that you're misspelling the main character's name, using "loose" instead of "lose," and think that awkward only has one w in it.  Okay, so I'm being a little unfair and pointing out some really common misspellings, but just consider this a public service.  

I don't really care about those two common misspellings as much as I care about those who commit the unforgivable crime of using Internet abbreviations, smilies, and/or 1337 speak in their fics.   If Edward made a slightly nervous smile after he confessed his feelings to Greed, DO NOT express it with ^_^;.  Write it.  Describe it.  And when you're done doing that, read it a few times over to make sure it's devoid of typos.  Double-check your spelling of words you're not quite sure about.

When to use "he and I" instead of "him and me":  If you're writing about Edward and Alphonse going out to buy more condoms and lube and you're writing from Al's perspective, there is a common mistake with grammar, and that is to automatically use "he and I" because it "sounds more correct."  As a rule of thumb, you subtract the other person from the sentence.  If what you're using still makes sense ("I wanted to get the Astroglide" versus "Me wanted to get the Astroglide") then you're in the clear.


8.  Your stupid Mary Sues/Marty Stus.

You sneak them in when no one's looking.  You insist they aren't self-inserts, but the smart ones know better.  The Mary Sue is usually paired up with another character (not distracting from the main HAWT YAOI SEXX0RZ, of course), while the Marty Stu can either be paired up with the afore-mentioned "other character," or he can even be the other half of the actual yaoi pairing.

Lesser crimes include making a Mary/Marty one of the main characters' confidants, despite the fact that there were twenty canonical characters to choose from.  Suddenly there's this random, made up character that Leon has to run and confide in, despite the fact that he has D/Jill/Chris in the manga.  


9.  Addendum.

I'm a yaoi fangirl.  I confess this.  I embrace this.  I enjoy the occasional pure smut or WAFF or angst-ridden fic.  Unfortunately, however, I do not always enjoy my fellow fangirls and what they produce.  Ultimately I'm probably in the yaoi community to stay (for better or for worse), but that doesn't mean I'm not going to bitch about things every once in a while.  

Things can be improved.  Always.

I desperately want to see the yaoi fandom improve.

An... "essay" I wrote concerning the fandom I am the most active in, yaoi. The original can be found here: [link]


And yes, as I have been told, it can apply to more than one fandom. That's great. However, I wrote this really with only yaoi in mind, seeing as how it's the fandom I know the most about.

EDIT FOR THE UNNATURALLY DENSE:

Look, you. You know who you are. You're all pissy because you think I'm a big ol' meanie. Before you shoot yourself in the foot, you need to know the following:

1. This rant is my opinion. I have never stated it to be anything other than such.

2. Stop accusing me of being an evil yaoi-hating harpy. I'm not. I explicitly state that I am a yaoi fangirl. (And *no,* smartass, that doesn't mean I hate myself.)

3. Stop thinking you are clever for telling me that people are allowed to have their own opinions/preferences in response to my rant about MY OPINIONS AND PREFERENCES.

4. There is no #4.

5. I never, ever attack anyone personally in my rant. If it seems like something I've said is directed specifically at you (or your best friend, or your small dog, or whatever), let me clear this up right now: IT ISN'T. I ask that you grant me the same courtesy.

6. This was mainly written for "the lulz." That is to say, for you to laugh at. Perhaps even learn from. If you are not satisfied with my brand of "the funny," too bad. No refunds! May I suggest Calvin and Hobbes?

EDIT AGAIN: Holy shit, people are still looking at this. Uh, okay. I understand that the Internet is forever and all, so I'm not really going to marvel at that fact. Just so you guys know, though, I've pretty much abandoned dA out of laziness and will, with 99.9% certainty, not be replying to comments any more. Sorry guys, that's what happens when real life takes over.

tl;dr - If you enjoyed the rant, fuck yeah, I'm glad you liked it. If you hated it and think I'm mean, I don't care in the least and would probably consider you to be an idiot.

This piece of literature speaks for me  on my frustration with this fandom,including the group of yaoi fangirls in a anime fandom that constantly ship the characters with the hottest males (as you stated above) so many...of my favorite shows...ruined because of these annoying fangirls,and when ANYONE even dares speak against it,the person is automatically a shitty person and a homophobic asshole and you're just so horrible and I'm tired of that stupid ass same insult and excuse every time,normally I'd let people be people but when they are invading my fucking shows,spamming these FANART images,horrible shitty poorly executed fanfictions it will kinda get under your skin and eventually get a very,sensitive spot for the fandom,Like I've said I usually don't care for fandoms but this fandom is annoying as fuck (the weeboos?) I'm not sure if I used or spelled it right (don't hurt me xD) but "those" fangirls tend to ruin things for other people and when you even say anything they get there little pantys in a fucking bundle and brew up an unholy shit storm of shit and hell itself.

Hey not all yaoi fangirls are like that!! I mean whatever MPREG is pretty sweet too but who cares about that. SCREW LOGIC XD.

Anyways back to what I was saying.
Not all fanfiction are crappy. I've read really good ones so you need to get out there and search for yourself.

Another thing!
The typos and stuff sometimes can't be controlled with an idiotic computer. XD
Then there are some people who don't care so I get What'cha mean on that one.

And also the guys are not hot. Most girls who love yaoi have their own personality for the characters, and they think they would be perfect for each other of the personalities... well they just fit together

Most don't care how the guys look, just their personalities unlike SOME people.


So what if people put, THAT WAS SO KAWAII, PLZ WRITE MORE!! Or, MOAR , or *nosebleeds and dies of cuteness overload*, it means that they really love the fanfic and they would like to read another part if you didn't notice. I want to see YOUR replies to your favorite ship.


Annddd I'm done with my rant :3

Someone else who thinks it's weird when the nonsupernatural character gives birth...espeacially irksome when the other guy in the couple is an established shapeshifter -_-

Seriously I'm okay with practically anything if it's written well but the other guy is an established shapeshifter the only reason you made the nonmagical one give birth is because he's the more "feminine" one and the whole time all I could think was "Use the bloody shapeshifter you moron!"

I mean you'd think it would be the obvious choice if something already exists in canon why make something up when you can utilise the thing that already exists? Gah >:(

I'm a yaoi fangirl as well and I totally agree with this, and this could apply to any fandom. If your going to write something on the internet you should at least try and make it reasonably legible for your attended audience. Plus, you shouldn't throw random words in from a different language if you don't intended to write in that language. Example, Say you're writing a Hetalia fanfic and you are writing about Germany, you can use German words because Germany uses German words when he speaks. But don't throw random Japanese words in, on an English speakers dialogue! Really fangirls calm your shit. Another thing that bothers me is when they get main characters way, way out of character, just to fit the story. Really guys stick to the script, I mean I don't expect you to get them perfect and you have to change some tiny things but you should be able to stick within a certain range.
UUUGGGGG! sorry, my rant is over.

EDIT: Bonus points for mentioning Calvin and Hobbes! Congratulations, you may be a yaoi fangirl (no offense, I just realized that came out sounding super douchey), but I think we can get along if we have that comedic masterpiece of a comic in common :D

YOU ARE A GENIUS! Finally someone gets it! Especially the Mpreg and grammar. When I'm reading a doc and there's a smiley face it makes me want to move to Mars and give up on life. Really. My faith in humanity is decreased whenever I read something like that.
Another thing that aggravates me is when they use the canon female main character and make her a complete unlikeable BITCH. *cough* eriri *cough*
Okay so I'm going to use a eriri fic I read once for example. It was really good! The plot was good, the grammar was good, and there was a actual PROBLEM. (Rant for another time) aaaand then Mikasa starts being completely out of character, throws a fit, and tries to seduce Eren. Really?! Okay I'm done.

Holy shiz, someone else who gets it. I Only ever look for Yaoi when Im really really bored, and its only ever for the porn value. 
I cannot stand Mpreg, I mean its just outright unnatural, dudes aren't supposed to 'have' babies, thats what makes em dudes, and hello have any of these fangirls heard about Adoption or better yet surrogacy? (I found this excellent Naruto/Sasuke fic that had Sakura as their surrogate mum once, I was like: HOLY SHIT THIS ONE GETS IT! can't seem to find it tho) 
but yeah more often than not I have to dig through hundreds of poorly written trash to get to the pairing I like and even deeper for the really really good ones.

take Polarshiping (joeyXMai from yugioh) for example: using the filters on fanfiction I get about 391 results for fics containing both of em, not a big problem right? then I remove Seto Kaiba using the -without- filters, drops down to 378, okay thats not too bad, just lost about 13 fics there, now ready for the kicker? i set JoeyXmai as the pairing...it drops down to 25....TWENTY FIVE, all because a bunch of idiots like the idea of one dude sticking his dick up the ass of another dude. news flash, ladies have assholes too, anal is not strictly a dude only thing.

purely Platonic relationships between two dudes is a thing that exisits, Bromance/brotherhood is a thing that exisits.
I'd much rather read about two dudes becoming really close and forming a brotherhood bond rather than one dude shoving his dick into the non-consensual ass of another dude who then form an abusive relationship, because they 'love each other so much'. no means no, you can't gloss over rape, rape is rape, just how a rose by any other name is still a mother-trucking rose.

It's a bunch of horny teenagers expressing their budding sexual urges by taking "Write what you know" to the absolute extreme. That's pretty much 99% of yaoi/yuri/pretty much every fan-genre. They fail to observe "Know what you write" (for example, it helps to have at least the fundamentals of car maintenance and driving before tackling Initial D, to say nothing of knowing the characters, their personalities, their beliefs, their motivations, etcetera).

Or, TL;DR, "They just want porn"

I was searching for something like this because I have always thought things as you said.  I like yaoi but not when the characters are totally different and behave nothing to do with the original ones! And I also detest the typical 'uke and seme' stereotypes damn! Do people think that men ONLY CAN HAVE A DAMN STUCK ROLE? NOOOOOOO! The writers change their personalities too much. Also I hate M-preg! It makes no sense at all because men can't have children and apart from that: it ABSOLUTELY is out of character, those bad written fanfics annoys me so much because they totally misunderstand the character 's personality and make them something nothing to do with the original. I have read good fanfics, well written as you said, those are rare, the author of a well written fic should be highly educated person. I am totally faving this.

I understand making pairings when characters are amicable and flirtatious with each other, BUT BITCH PLEASE! DO NOT FUCKING PAIR UP TWO PEOPLE WHO DESPISE EACH OTHER, EVEN IF THEY ARE HOT!

My Least favourite Yaoi pairing:

LxLight (Death Note)
Why?!?!? Light was never L's friend, he wanted to KILL L from the start. He wanted to get rid of him. HOW CAN YOU TAKE THAT FOR LOVE?!?!?

SO PLEASE FANGIRLS! IF YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE YAOI PAIRINGS, AT LEAST FIND OUT IF THEY'RE COMPATIBLE  OR SHIT!!

I can't stand it because it's in every fandom, ruins fandoms, and the fans are insane. They're almost like Bronies-they put all of their crap into EVERY. DAMN.

Patrick Galbraith, a visiting researcher at Sophia University and author of The Moé Manifesto, has spent years in Tokyo studying the explosion of BL superfandom, which, according to his findings, pulls in more than $120 million annually, and accounts for roughly 4% of all printed manga in Japan.

Although many young women like Hana prefer to keep their comic book predilections a secret, Galbraith estimates that there are well over a million self-titled rotten girls in Japan, which has created myriad sub-genres within the BL universe.

Galbraith explains that Boys’ Love is also called yaoi in Japanese, an acronym used to reference the homoerotic relationship of two males for a female audience that stands for “no climax, no punch line, no meaning.”

Stories within the yaoi canon run the spectrum of explicitness, from narratives that delicately hint a romantic connection between two characters

I do agree with you on some of your points and being a yaoi fangirl myself I am able to understand some of my fellow fangirls minds however it seems to me like you are lumping all of the yaoi fangirls in together. Like your point about fanfiction. I read and write fanfiction and even though I myself am not very good I have read very many that are written like an actual book you would buy. And to be honest all of the fangirls I have ever met pair people because of their personalities and the way they interact not because of physical attributes. I will however respect your opinion because even though I'm only 13 I know you do not judge people for their opinions and thoughts. And I'm a serious weirdo so who am I to say anything!!!
