Oh man, if I could I respond only in a bunch of gifs about feelings… but alas, tumblr is ageist against my browser and won’t let me.
My opinion about InuKag is not even an opinion at this point. This couple reducing me to pile of melted goo and sparkles and confetti made up of pure FEELINGS.
But -breathes- I will try to give you some of the reason behind those feelings if you’d like something more coherent than my intense fangirl screaming. Here it goes:
I adore these two together. I actually don’t like when people in the fandom say that they both loved each other from the first moment they met. That’s horribly inaccurate. Inuyasha nearly killed the poor girl, he only thought of her in terms of being unlike Kikyou, and he was really only using her because she could see the jewel shards. Kagome was mesmerized by him when she first saw him, sure, but who wouldn’t be? The reason I hate when people say it was a “love at first sight” deal is because I love how it isn’t. I love that they feel for each other eventually. They grew to care for each other over their time together (and apart).
What makes them great is how friendly they are with one another. I was talking about InuKik earlier, and though I want to analyze this couple as they are, this is one of the comparisons that I just need to make! Kagome and Inuyasha are best friends. They are pretty open with how they’re feeling, they yell and bicker, but they also shout each other’s name in concern, and let their worry show. What’s best is that they have fun together, and that’s so important. For all the times that they make each other angry, I think they make each other happier than either of them has ever felt. Inuyasha even says that Kagome makes him feel calm and light, despite everything that had happened to him in the past. I think it takes a super special person to be able to do that, and that’s who Kagome is for him. She makes him a better person.
The next biggest thing about their relationship is how much they trust and depend on each other. Okay okay, last comparison to InuKik: Inuyasha and Kagome trustone another. Super important! Inuyasha says that Kagome was the first person who he ever really trusted. That’s amazing, that astonishing, and that’s the beautiful part of how he feels about her. That’s what allows him to trust her, and in turn, trust other people. Kagome is life altering for Inuyasha. And eventually he gets so attached to her that his “I need you for the jewel shards” becomes an “i need you” in a whole different sense.
Ah, I could talk about these two all day! I really could. Every day for the rest of my life! So I’ll just say that Kagome was born to meet Inuyasha, and he was too, for Kagome’s sake.
AHHHHHHHHHHHH okay that’s all the rational I can handle about them. I’m gooooo now. I just love them. Perfect forever OTP always. omg.
The Grand Bishop! Results here! I’m really really happy with the result :D
Anonymous said: How about Jade/Karkat and Terezi/Dave? I know you prefer DaveJade all day every day, and same goes for KarkatTerezi feelings, but it's interesting to hear some other ship opinions that aren't OTPs. =D
You’re very correct about my homestuck otp! Haha, I don’t hide it very well.
I actually really really like JadeKat! I think it’s funny (and totally trope-y) that they basically hated each other at the start and ended up becoming sort of best friends? But I do think they word really well together after all. Though I ship it SO HARDCORE pale (and even with Jade as Future and Past/Present Karkat’s Auspitice), it’s really pleasant to think about as a redrom. I don’t think Jade ever felt that attracted to Karkat as he did towards her, but I can imagine that she could easily develop real and lasting feelings for him. SO JadeKat is actually one of my favorite red ships, but oh man it my ultimate pale ship!! PaleTP!
Now for DaveRezi. IT’S JUST MY NOTP OF HOMESTUCK I’M SORRY. I don’t hate the ship! I really don’t think they’re bad together at all, I just have personal feelings where I’m really adverse to them as a couple. I know they happened canonically— but they also broke up canonically, but managed to maintain a good friendship— which is awesome. In my head they got together very casually, and their breakup was the same way. Like, “hey we like each other, wanna date?” to “so this dating thing isn’t working out, that cool?” and it was cool. Dave and Terezi are like, the coolest kids and duos.
I love them as friends and best bros. I think it was eternally sweet that Terezi cried over dead Dave, and their conversation about “licking the paintings” is so silly and cute. They’re such good friends, but they don’t at all fit romantically in my mind! Eep! Still, I can understand why people would think they’re great together in that way. As for me, purely pale— and a super neat one at that :)
And thank you for asking (and knowing me so well, haha). It’s funny how despite my intense DaveJade and Karezi feels, JadeKat is like, one of my favorite pairings while Daverezi is my notp. haha.
