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.

Oh, dear gracious!  That fanfic example gave me a physical tick when I read it; not only because I'm a student in Japanese, but because I respect the language enough not to mix it willy-nilly. I hate when any kind of fanfic writer does that! If it doesn't have an effect on the story when taken out, it shouldn't even be there.

"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."
Agree completely. That sort of thing doesn't add clarity to the writing and makes it more difficult to understand the point. You're writing, assumedly, to give a message to your readers, why make it difficult? If you're doing it because you like it, then it's nothing more than literary masturbation.
Good job, Snappedchopstick.

YESS! FINALLY SOMEONE TALKS ABOUT KILLING OFF THE FEMALE CHARACTERS!!

I dislike it when... No actually, I HATE it when people kill off the damn female characters or completely change their personalities to be a straight up annoying ass. I find that COMPLETELY annoying as they were loving towards their boyfriends in the anime/manga.
Secondly, I find fanfics that have MPREG unrealistic. Obviously, it's male. Males don't have vaginas, which is NEEDED to have a child. How is the baby gonna come out? 

I sometimes read yaoi, but I'm not a diehard fan. You fangirls need to calm down a bit.

I personally have more of a problem with yaoi fantards fetishizing and even dehumanizing actual LGBT people than I do with the mediocre to flat-out bad fanfiction.

The seme/uke dynamics in almost all yaoi replicate traditional heteronormative gender roles disguised as a gay relationship and a lot of the times, the uke is portrayed almost like a woman due to the heteronormative gender roles that both the seme and uke follow.

As someone in the LGBT community myself (I'm bisexual), yaoi is flat-out objectification.

That's not to say that I dislike shipping same-sex couples because I do this myself, just really dislike the seme/uke dynamics featured in yaoi.

OMG Thank you. It was about time someone said this. As a gay male I feel offended a little by yaoi. Just because I like guys doesn't mean I also like flowers and the color pink. I have the personality of a straight guy, I just don't want to be in a relationship with a girl.

Lol, I'm gonna say something about this, can I? ^^

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

I don't write.

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

I prefer the Nordic languages(Finnish, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic) and the Romance languages(Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian and Romanian) over Japanese.

"You write shitty songfics."

Wtf is a songfic?

"You leave the WORST reviews."

And what does it have to do with it?  

"Your fics are terrible."

I already read some very good fics about yaoi.

"You write MPREG."

Not every yaoi fangirl likes mpreg.

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

You aren't my teacher to correct me.

"Your stupid Mary Sues/Marty Stus."

Not every fangirl has OCs.

And I know you probably are trolling, but still, I wanted to say it. :3

Before I start, I have to say that I am not a yaoi fan. I'm hetero, so I prefer hetero pairings. But I do support gay couples, and I do believe that love has no gender. But in the mpreg part you mentioned the movie Junior. Most yaoi fans, and even Yuri fans, are perverts, and want the characters to have sexual intercourse. But if I remember correctly, wasn't Arnold impregnated with an experiment?

I'm a yaoi fan, but I'm not really good at songfics. I'm not fond of MPREG either, like imagine if a guy's abdomen becomes that big for nine months. That's completely impossible and painful. I love yaoi because it's kind of cute when men show signs of love, whether it's gay or straight. Besides, fanfictions are different from the original story. Fanfiction can just be fanfiction. So, no hard feelings. We fujoshis are just being fans.

Extremist yaoi fangirls always get on my nerves, because they always hate the females characters, not for their flaws (every character has flaws) but because they're female, so a threat for their favorite yaoi pairing.

They describe them as stupid nuisances who deserve to be hated by the male characters, and who must be eliminated. Always.

And this pisses me off. I can barely read a yaoi fic without seeing one of my favorite female characters being bashed, being turned into a whiny moron who has to be scorned by the males. If she shed two tears, she will be called a "crybaby". If she's nice and rather harmless, she will be called "useless" and "weak". You got it.

Things can get really bad if she is pretty.  Sometimes she gets simply murdered, whereas she wasn't even causing trouble for the yaoi couple, but just because she was there.

Every time this gets me "Eeeeeerghh".

Maybe this has been said a lot of times, but I had it on my mind for too long.

In all honesty;i do agree with this. Plus, I feel like this is more like......advice. Sometimes I do enjoy song-fics,that is, if they do relate to the story. I wrote one myself and I tried very hard to match the lyrics to my story. Yes,you really shouldn't write stupid, overly-used Japanese words/phrases. But bro -_- m-preg? I've only seen it once and I agree it does disgust me. The Mary-sues/Marty-stus (whatever you want to call it) also is quite annoying. Just fill in a character from the anime/fandom. Thankfully I have spellcheck and I do try to read over my fan-fics to see any mistakes. Embarrassingly, I do read some smutty ones from time to time. Please don't be so rude to 'snappedchopsticks' she is just stating her opinion.

I don't read fanfic because I don't like reading it. It's just not my thing. Ninety nine percent of the time it's this weird crack stuff. Honestly, people can write what they want but, I just don't want it shoved in my face...

It's just terrible in my opinion and I just can't like it. I even tried to write non-canon fiction myself and i just couldn't like it or do it. And I am also a fangirl. I agree with everything that you said. I don't like mpreg either it's just weird.

The one thing that bugs me so much about fanfiction is that they write about characters that hate eachother and pair them up because they are attractive. It's just so shallow. Jut my two cents. Feel free to disagree but, keep it civil or else I won't even reply. I don't have time for petty arguments. I got better things to do on my time and there is only so much time we have on this planet. Like I rather do something I like, and I normally don't comment on things like this. Like I said it's just not my cup of tea. Anyway, I actually find this journal to be pretty funny. x)

Those pairings are indeed pretty common (I will not complain about it, I'm a crack-pairing addict :D)

I think they are interesting because they show a different side of the relation between the two characters who hate each other.

I've seen also many pairings  with characters who seems to be foes, but who have some things in common/some reason to have a positive feeling about their enemy.
For me I don't want to stick to the canon, though I understand that it can annoy some people.

I am not a shipper, I actually draw my own characters and only use my own for things like that.. I like having control over my own worlds and I don't like using someone else's characters. When it comes to fanart I don't even like drawing it that much. To each their own though. Happy shipping lol. <3

Honestly, people can do what they want when it comes to shipping. It's not hurting anyone and I wouldn't start a war over it even though I think it's strange. I can have a civilized conversation with a shipper. Non canon pairings can be fun to draw sometimes. Even when it doesn't make sense. I heard someone say that, they are fictional characters. Imagine them how you want.
