quicksilver-ink said: Firo/Ennis, Ahiru/Rue, Ahiru/Fakir, Prince Siegfried/everyone, Anthy/Utena, Sonja/Rosch/Stocke, uhh...I forget what other fandoms we have in common...

Firo/Ennis is a B or A, they’re adorable. :3 I was surprised I could love the ship so much considering how much inherent risk it has for awful power imbalance, but it works out somehow that Firo is just Firo enough for that never to become an actual issue. (Or an unaddressed one for that matter, which also makes a big difference.) Anyway yes, they are cute and melt my heart and I want them to just be married forever.

Duck/Rue is A+++!! Their relationship is the heart of the show and so important both to me personally and in general, and I’ll never stop being so glad about basically every aspect of how it’s portrayed and presented. <3

Duck/Fakir is also an A! Their relationship is such a fundamental part of both their stories and growth as characters, and I love it so much. Them staying together forever never fails to give me the warm fuzzies. (…Though I will also say that at this point I’m pretty tired of fandom’s constant focus and emphasis on their relationship as romantic. I mean, it’s not like I expect most people to see Duck as aromantic and/or ship them platonically like I do, but I’m still really uncomfortable at how much priority is given to them being ~Romance~ compared to them being, y’know, super supportive and loving partners to each other?)

Siegfried/everyone gets an F from me, because when you get down to it, the prince’s all-encompassing, unconditional love is terrible for him. In a simplistic storybook character it may be fine, but as Mytho’s character arc and backstory show time and again, when applied to an actual person that kind of limitless selflessness is debilitating and destructive. Even as an emotionless blank slate, Mytho’s programmed instinct to protect anyone in need leads him to unthinkingly endanger himself (and often people close to him by extension); and when his insulating layer of fairytale pureness begins to break down under the raven’s blood, the pressure from that impossible degree of self-sacrifice nearly destroys him. In the end, it’s really only when Mytho is able to divorce that need to help everyone from his fundamental identity that he can exist as a happy and functional person.

Anthy/Utena is A++++ into infinity. They are one of THE OTPs to rule them all and one of the best relationships and love stories I’ve ever seen anywhere, from both of their change and growth as characters to the way they constantly reach and reach and mess up and miss in their interactions with each other, but still keep getting closer and improving bit by bit and caring so deeply as they try, and fail, and finally just barely succeed in making things right. My girls ;;

Sonja/Rosch/Stocke… Definite A in general terms of their relationship and how many feelings I have about the three of them and how much care and concern they all have for each other ;; (Anyone who saw my liveblog has seen just how much they wrecked me in the Alternate History.) I don’t have any particularly developed feelings on it as specifically romantic, I think—that is to say, Sonja and Rosch absolutely would like for Stocke to get over here in the OT3 with them already, but I am not sure off the top of my head about Stocke’s end of things. (He would definitely be very … Stocke about it, in the sense of going ‘wait what. … /continues onto a different subject as if nothing has happened’ — but I haven’t thought far enough to disentangle how much of that would be the obvious ‘what do you mean people care about me personally as an individual, don’t be ridiculous’ and how much would be ‘I don’t actually feel that way about them though (what is romantic attraction anyway)’, if that makes sense?)

quicksilver-ink replied to your post “oh christ, I had a detailed reply to quicksilver-ink’s ship rating…”

Oh no, I’m sorry! Would it help if I resent the ask, or do you still have that?

Don’t worry, you have nothing to be sorry about. And I do still have the ask—I actually have my response mostly finished again (this time in notepad, haha) as we speak, so I’ll probably be responding for real soon anyway! It was just very frustrating for me at the time, but you’re fine :>

1 note

on a brighter note, i was poking at google analytics earlier out of boredom and discovered that some person at some point in time found my blog through a google search for ‘fonicly’

i think i should feel very proud of myself for this.

oh christ, I had a detailed reply to quicksilver-ink's ship rating meme ask almost finished and then i accidentally refreshed the page and lost it all. apologies i won’t be getting to anything further tonight. tomorrow i’ll probably go back and retype it/get to the others, but right now there is not a force in the world that could get me to do that through my current aura of fuck my life. I will probably go to bed soon anyway (this is at least something of a reason i should just stop being up any longer), but just so you know.

B - It’s Really Cute

I really need to do more with this to love it more, but I really do enjoy it! I love the friendship they have, that they come from incredibly different backgrounds and that they’re even incredibly different as people—Tear is introverted and part of the Coalition For Reason, Natalia is extroverted and emotional and doesn’t always (always) think rationally before she acts—but they’re still able to connect with and support each other. Natalia accepts Tear as she is without question, and likewise, Tear is ready to get to know Natalia as she is from the jump, isn’t intimidated at all by the fact that Natalia is the princess. I can see them bonding over cute clothes (that Tear claims not to be interested in but she actually really is and Natalia knows it), but I can also see them helping each other through things post-game, helping each other cope and move on and finding comfort in one another. They make up for what the other lacks, emotionally, and they bring one another strength through that.

So yeah, Teartalia all the way. All. The. Way.

A or A+ provided it’s platonic because they are my babies I will probably be embarrassingly emotional about them forever okay ;; F when romantic because uuuughh no that is not the dynamic of a romantic relationship and trying to make it that way is reeeally off-putting to me :<

Send me a ship and I’ll rate it.
