QUOTE (Dearheart @ Oct 26 2009, 09:55 PM) *
And in case anyone missed it, I hate the pairing...NOT the people who like it. I apologize if I've accidentally stepped on any innocent EdxAl shipper's toes. tongue.gif I don't like it, don't understand it...but if you do, I respect that. Peace out.

Yap, that's exactly what this thread is about. ^^ And, in case some people might not know or might not realize...


Everyone, please do post and tell us which FMA fan-pairings you can't stand, and why. However, please hold your opinion/ranting/bashing/trashing on the PEOPLE who like/dislike certain FMA fan-pairings, on this thread, as that is NOT the topic of this thread. ^^

Please remember: On this thread.... Please do state your opinions on FMA pairings, but NOT your opinions on fans of those FMA pairings.

Thank you! smile.gif

~ Sorry for the interruption, now please go back to the regular discussion! biggrin.gif

Ah, another pairing that disturbs me is Hoho/Ed. I've seen plenty of fics where Hohenheim is turned into a drunkard and he rapes Edward. Many people fail to realize that Hohenheim is really a nice, gentle guy. He would never hurt his sons in such a way.
Hoho/Ed mainly disturbs me just because it's incest. I feel the same way about this pairing as I do about Ed/Al

QUOTE
[rant] It's not cute. It's not "hawt". It's not sweet or beautiful or deliciously tragic. IT'S WRONG. It's sick and perverted and cruel and TOTALLY messed-up, and above all else, it's sad...because one of the things that makes FMA such a beautiful and amazing story is the deep, trusting, selfless devotion Ed and Al have for each other as brothers. One of the reasons why their relationship is so powerful is because they're brothers who deeply love each other as such. And in my opinion, when you try and twist that into something romantic, it undermines so much of the meaning in that. Seriously...why is it so impossible for two guy characters to care about each other without getting forced into a ship? Does brotherly love mean nothing to people anymore? Why can't they just appreciate Ed and Al's relationship for what it is and go abuse someone else's characters? dry.gif [/rant]

I must agree with Dearheart. It's so sad how some people can't hear two males say 'I love you' without skewing it into a "romance." Now, I'm not trying to bash anyone here. It's just that I have a hard time understanding how brotherly love can be so misconstrued.
I love the brotherly love between Ed and Al; that is, indeed, what make FMA such a beautiful series! All that love!

Speaking of incest, and Hoho/Ed, etc... I thought this comic was hilarious! It's by corilefay on Deviant Art. Here's the link.

Once again, REMINDER (as a possible preemptive measure xp)

On this thread, please do post and tell us which FMA fan-made pairings you can't stand, and why.

However, please curve your posting of your opinion on PEOPLE (other FMA fans) who like/dislike certain FMA fan-pairings, on this thread, as that is NOT the topic of this thread. ^^

You guys can post and tell us about your dislikes of certain FMA parings, and tell us why you don't like such parings, WITHOUT putting down other FMA fans who happen to favor the FMA pairings you happen to abhor, on your post here... right? ^^


That would be very much appreciated!! Thank you! smile.gif

In general, I can't stand pairings that blatantly go against a character's canonical personality. So many pairings are something that neither of the characters involved would never actually do-- Hughes cheating on Gracia, for instance. When characters are paired against how they've been written, it seems like an insult to the work to me.

I know I have already expressed my dislike for this pairing but.........

I CANNOT STAND ROYAI.

I just wanted to say it again to protest against Royai Day.


I'll admit that I feel somewhat left out while a lot of FMA fans are posting fanfictions and fanart in celebration of Royai day. It makes me feel like the only FMA fan who's anti-Royai.


I feel the SAME way I thought I was the only one who didn't like Royai because everyone seems to like it

I thought I already posted here...

Anyway, I really,really don't like Royai because it is the most overrated couple in FMA. It is constantly thrown in my face and the couple is not significant enough to have that much popularity in my opinion.

The Royai fans is probably what made me not like this couple so much because some of them put down other couples too much because it interrupts the Royainess(which makes no since)

Just want to make sure of what you mean by the couple is not "significant enough"?

IMO, regardless of whether or not you like the pairing, it's hard to deny that Royai is one of the more heavily played up pairings in the manga itself. Only EdxWinry gets a comparable amount of attention, it seems.

Personally I don't really get RoyxEd. Not because it's two guys, but because it just makes no sense as a pairing imo.

EdxWinry is an example of a significant couple to me. Royai is implied but not as strongly as EdxWinry you can't even really say they're in love yet. RoyxEd is a fanmade couple so it doesn't have to make sense in the anime or manga just in fanfiction. btw I said royai was insignificant in my opinion it's not like I stated a fact so why does it matter.
Reason for edit: Can we avoid quoting many people at once and only quote the comment you are replying to? Thank-you

EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO THEIR OPINION.

This thread was set up so you could discuss which pairings you personally dislike...not why your favourite is more justified than another or why somebody disliking a pair is "wrong".

Can we also avoid calling pairings disgusting. Though this may be your feeling it can upset people who like that couple or even encourage a fight.

Thank-you.

I'm tolerable of most pairings because it depends on personal tastes, I guess.

But one pairing that I really dislike is Elricest. I personally don't understand how people can support it, to be honest, because they're brothers. To me a sibling relationship is a really special one in itself, and this brotherly love is one of the driving forces of FMA itself, and I think people taking that into incest are just ruining it. And as well as that, I don't agree with incest. oO

I can't stand RoyxEd. Well, not just RoyxEd, but like Katya Martin said, when a pairing twists the personality and traists of another character to work. RoyxEd for instance... neither are homosexual, and canonically, Ed is in fact in love with Winry. And when the fans start jumping up and down when they think they see hints of a it in the manga or anime, I wanna slice someone. If a fan acknowledges that the pairing they support is not canon (if it isnt...) then, sure, no problem.

I don't hate fanfiction and such because it's sick or perverted or anything, no that's not it at all. I just hate it because I don't understand it.

A lot of these people are really great writers! Great stories, good dialog, all around a good story. But it's not FMA. The characters don't even act like the characters, so really you're just taking the name of someone else's character for your own character. Why not write your own stories? If Arakawa's characters aren't good enough for you, why not go make your own? Why bother using these characters to begin with, if obviously you don't like them enough to actually write for THAT CHARACTER? That's all I'm sayin'. I just don't get it.

I was looking over the choices and with all the "problems" between Roy and Winry what with him killing her parents I just don't see how that pairing would work so I chose that one. Just to let you know the spoiler tags are there solely for the people who just so happen to be new to the anime. smile.gif

As for the yaoi ones, I'm not opposed to yaoi at all... not one bit, but what I chose was BarryX48.... I just don't see that happening....

^Yeah, come to think of it, I've never understood RoyxWinry, either. I don't believe I've ever seen any substantial connection between the two. In fact, I don't really recall them having any sort of regular contact with each other.
