I want to be an idiot And go to idiot land An idiot bird in my hand I'd walk like a total idiot And sing like idiots do And people would say "what an idiot, He/She's an idiot through and through And I'd plant an idiot's garden And live in an idiot's house A harmless grinning idiot With my lovely idiot spouse.

So I've recently gotten into a new series called 'Maria-sama ga miteru' (MariMite), which impressioned me by the beauty of its characters and their relationships with others and its art. The story is very simple and yet, I couldn't help but get hooked. So I'd recommand it to anyone looking for a shôjo that stands out from others.
This anime is shôjo-ai hinted (mostly by the way of Sei) and most of the relationships are sisterly ones, and yet, I'm a nut for the Sei X Shimako pairing (actually I'm a nut for these characters) so I come bearing pictures of them. I don't really know if these arts are official, but it looks pretty close.
'Buffy and Angel had gone out before and Buffy wasn't really comfortable talking to Spike and Angel at the same time, because now Spike and Buffy had been going out for 6 months and Buffy was afraid that Angel might tell Spike that him and Buffy went out, but it turns out that Angel had told Spike that they went out, Spike was heartbroken that Buffy never told him that they went out, so Spike broke up with Buffy to get back at her for not telling him that Angel and Buffy went out.'

*revives again* I really don't like yaoi all that much. I find a lot of it to be poorly written and full of rape and bondage and other things related, rather than actual love. It's not all of it, but a good chunk of it is. But I really like shoujo-ai o.o I don't know why. It's easier to write and I can keep people in character much more easily. And I've always been a sucker for fluff and yuri just seems to have more fluff.
My favorite shoujo-ai pairings is easily SheenaxColette (From the game Tales of Symphonia) The blonde girl is Colette. The black haired girl is Sheena. (Yes, both are in my sig, and the root of my username.)

Even I have to admit, I like shonen-ai/shojo-ai things too.. I think Summoner Colette just more or less listed the reasons as to why yaoi tends to frighten me ^^;
Unfortunatly I have no pictures to post concerning shojo-ai.. but the piccies here are very cute. ^^ :: is just going 'Awww' at the sleepover pic of Sheena and Colette..and the piccy of the two girls asleep with the kitties::
