Oh dear, there she goes...  
Dear Shinon,
You have at LEAST a 40% chance to crit at ALL. TIMES. So why, in the name of all that is holy, WHY don't you ever crit?! While we're on the subject of you, I will never, as long as I live, understand why you have such a rabid fanbase. I find you boring and one-dimensional. AND YOU DON'T CRIT.
No love,
Soren

Dear Heather,
Why do you exist? Just when I was starting to grow some faith that there WASN'T always an annoying thief in FE games, what with both Colm and Rennac being cool, and then Volke and Sothe! You just have to come along and ruin it for me.
Much resentment,
Soren

Dear Boyd,
I effing love you. You are amazing.
Keep kicking ass,
Soren

Dear Mia,
HOLY CRAP YOU BECAME AWESOME. GO MIA!
Keep kicking ass with Boyd,
Soren

Dear Soren,
WHUT HAPPENED TO YOU? D: You're still cool, but, but... Where's your speed?! You NEVER hit twice, you never even use Adept, and you never dodge anything! ...You're like Rhys! I don't want another Rhys! I want Soren back!
Very disappointed,
The one who named herself after you because of your awesomeness

MOVING ON TO THE FANDOM:

Dear certain fangirl,
plz to not be assuming that every pairing I like is popular and every pairing you like is obscure. In fact, the case is usually quite the opposite. A few points I'd like to make:

-I seriously might pull my hair out if I see another IkexRanulf fangirl who thinks she's ZOMG SO ORIGINAL for pairing Ike with someone other than Elincia or Soren. And IkexLethe? Is practically canon in their supports in Souen. On the other hand, I would LOVE to meet ONE other person who likes RanulfxLethe. Really.
-Also, I am not a traitor to IkexSoren for liking StefanxSoren. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DOES ANYONE ELSE LIKE THIS PAIRING?! Hell, if there's anyone out there who actually honestly LIKES STEFAN, I'd love to hear from you so I know I'm not alone in the world.
-RathxWil isn't THE most popular yaoi pairing of Rekka, but it's definitely up there. Whereas RathxLyn, which I love more than almost any other pairing EVER, is only liked because it makes Sue. :|
-I don't like Heath. At all. That does not make LegaultxHeath obscure. You would be laughed out of any FE yaoi circle by calling that pairing obscure.

Getting tired of this,
Soren

And one more thing? HET IS NOT EVIL. THE JOY OF FIRE EMBLEM IS THAT YOU CAN SHIP ALMOST ANY KIND OF PAIRING. TAKE AWAY ALL THE HET AND YOU'RE NOT ENJOYING IT TO ITS FULLEST.

I LIKE STEFAN. I WASTE MY TIME GETTING TO THE EXACT SPOT IN THE LEVEL SO HE'LL APPEAR. WHY DON'T I HAVE A STEFAN ICON?

And, the only Stefan/Soren fics I've found involving Soren being raped by him and then running to Ike for comforting buttsex. (Which doesn't really count.)

*Stefan!icon*
Ugh, I know. >__< The only fics with Stefan in them make him an asshole rapist monster for IkexSoren leverage. It's so frustrating. >.< The only friend I have who really LIKES Stefan, instead of just humoring me because I like him... Doesn't even play Fire Emblem. -__-; She just RPs with me and he's one of my characters. HOW SAD IS THAT?
lunar_wandering: geoffreylunar_wandering on February 22nd, 2008 02:12 am (UTC)
Is It Up For Stealing?
I don't get why he's so ignored in fandom. Sure, he doesn't say that much, but aren't quiet/mysterious male characters usually popular? Is it because he isn't full of OMG!angst over his "condition"?

*GoD Spoilers*

I mean, he starts his own country! Come on!

I GOT IT FROM OMGDRAGONFLY ON DA
SO YOU'D HAVE TO ASK HIM/HER.

He's so cool because he's MORE than the quiet and mysterious one... He's also a crackhead! XDDD Oh, I heart him so...

YUS I HEARD ABOUT THAT IT MADE ME HAPPPEEEEE

Re: I GOT IT FROM OMGDRAGONFLY ON DA
I have trouble writing Stefan. I can't seem to get his character right. That's why I don't write him.

Ohohoho... I think we discussed most of these on a coupe of phone calls a while ago. so I'll spare you. ^^;

KJHFKLJSAFSD; I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN WITH SHINON. My Shinon just must not like me. I even gave him a Killer bow. Still messes that up sometimes. DX

Hmn... I wish there was more Ike/Lethe. >:
But I don't wanna be on any Ike/Soren or any Ike/Elincia fan's hit-list or anything....

*nods* Indeed. ..If het were evil and had to go away... My Hector/Florina OTP wouldn't exist, desu. ._.
With a side of Geoferry/Elincia, plz.
The Sparkly Sage of Sarcasm and Witty Quips: Kalaschikyuwo on February 22nd, 2008 02:34 am (UTC)
Dude... I was trying to say that IkexLethe is one of those more popular pairings that's considered OMGOBSCURE just because I like RanulfxLethe, which is more or less nonexistant.
objection_less on February 22nd, 2008 02:37 am (UTC)
Oh... Sorry about that!
That totally went over my head...


I should not read rants while having sweets. D=

Thinking about it... I have never seen Ranulf/Lethe in depth. It would be interesting to see.. AND SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT! in a good way, too. *shot for Monty Python refrence*

The only fans of that pairing, yet not very many like you said, I ever see are on Deviant art or FF.net. and I TRY to quit looking for fanfics there, anymore...

But they aren't very good writers or artists. And they only seem to pair them up (whether randomly or not) just because they're a boy and girl cat. and most of those fans don't even care for slash, to begin with.

My fandom!twin loves the pairing, too, though... Maybe I'll ask her and a bunch of other people if there's any good Ranulf/Lethe that I might actually enjoy. whether fanfic or art. O=
The Sparkly Sage of Sarcasm and Witty Quips: Kulachikyuwo on February 22nd, 2008 03:38 am (UTC)
I'm not saying, "zomg like my pairings"... I'm saying just because we have differing tastes, it doesn't mean I represent the entire fandom and you're totally obscured. That's all I'm trying to say. >.< Most of the pairings I like ARE obscure and it really gets on my nerves when, as soon as I admit to liking something, people are OPPRESSED!3121!1!!# by the people (read: me) who like that pairing. It always happens and it's tiresome and it makes fandom not even enjoyable and I have to resort to RPing with my self.

The end.

Aww, no love for Heather? Any particular reason not? I love her personality (she's hiliarious) and, at least for me, her stats rocked.

Oh! And I like Stefan. Stefan x Mordecai is one of my OTPs
The Sparkly Sage of Sarcasm and Witty Quips: Kurth is fabchikyuwo on February 22nd, 2008 03:58 am (UTC)
YUS ANOTHER STEFAN FAN OMG HEARTS FOR J00

I love StefanxMordecai, too. I lurve it because it shows a lot of both of their personalities that isn't otherwise shown and OMG HE FOUND A LAGUZ HE LIKES T___T

I think... I have a thing against thieves. >.< I mean, I wanted to like her, I really did! She seemed like she'd be fun! But... then she couldn't do ANYthing and she drove me CRAZY. >___< I hated Matthew, too (and all the fangirling/boying over him didn't help). I liked Leila. Why couldn't we have gotten her instead? >:
Trying to avoid that bloody destiny: Shiharam and Haarthenicochan on February 22nd, 2008 04:08 am (UTC)
Yeah, agreed. Stefan x Mordecai is just amazingly sweet. They are soul mates <333

Stefan x Soren is okay, just not my cup of tea. I'd read it though. *shrug* It's hard for me to envision Soren with anyone but Ike. (And I'm not a huge Ike/Soren fan, honestly.)

Wow. That might be it. Heather seems generally liked for being a pretty competent thief. I know that for me she's been one of my favorite units statistically. She dodges EVERYTHING and hurts everything too. She also gets some awesome bonuses when supported with her lover close friend Nephenee.

The Sparkly Sage of Sarcasm and Witty Quips: Kurth is fabchikyuwo on February 22nd, 2008 09:04 pm (UTC)
XDDD Inside joke thar. I WANNA HUG HIM TOO. He needs more love. X3
moonfall86: *sigh*moonfall86 on February 22nd, 2008 10:13 pm (UTC)
ALL the dragons do. Seriously, the Goldoan royal family has more angst than Cloud Strife listening to emo music.

I want to write a fic where Soren discovers his past and it causes certain personal and political issues to arise.
The Sparkly Sage of Sarcasm and Witty Quipschikyuwo on February 23rd, 2008 01:18 am (UTC)
I've thought of that, too... But as I said, I don't write fanfiction anymore. v.v Plus Soren's story is eerily similar to that of one of my OCs, so it would just be weird...
moonfall86moonfall86 on February 22nd, 2008 05:40 am (UTC)
(another Baten Kaitos fan here. I need to finish Origins. Lyude/Melodia, anyone?)

Stefan/Soren is fine with me. I'd like to see S/S that didn't include rape.

I liked Ike/Lethe in PoR, but they don't interact so much in RD. Ranulf/Lethe is cute, especially if you have Lyre and Lethe fighting over him.

I never cared much for Legault OR Heath. (geez, I almost called him "Heather." That's my name, so I'm used to typing it.)

As for obscure? I ship Soren/Micaiah. I'd give reasons why, but it's pretty spoilery.
cimikatcimikat on February 22nd, 2008 05:29 pm (UTC)
Soren/Micaiah? You know, now that I think about it, that is actually quite an adorable pairing. Especially since I can never see Soren and Ike as more than good friends, and Sothe x Micaiah romantically just sorta irks me for some reason.
The Sparkly Sage of Sarcasm and Witty Quipschikyuwo on February 22nd, 2008 09:02 pm (UTC)
(NU NU NU NU NO LYUDEXMELODIA DO NOT WANT! DXDXDX I does not like Melodia, and I just... can't picture Lyude with a woman, spare maybe a little crush on Xelha. :x Not just cause he's flaming, but the whole "ALMARDE!!312!!111" seems to contribute to it. :x)

The fandom world is greatly lacking in StefanxSoren, and all that you can find IS rape and it irritates me. -_- If I actually wrote fanfiction anymore...

zomg. Lyre and lethe figthing over Ranulf. Hearts for you. XD

I ship SorenxMicaiah, too... >: Their little conversation if um. Stuff happens. Makes me sad. ;-;
moonfall86moonfall86 on February 22nd, 2008 10:10 pm (UTC)
Actually, before Kalas ended up with Xelha, I liked Lyude/Xelha and Kalas/Melodia. I think that might have worked better. (I actually got complaints for a fic that was vaguely suggestive of Lyude/Kalas).

Little conversation if "stuff happens" between Soren and Micaiah? You mean the battle conversations where they basically say "I want to be your friend but we're in a war and have to kill each other?"
The Sparkly Sage of Sarcasm and Witty Quips: Kurth is fabchikyuwo on February 23rd, 2008 01:17 am (UTC)

AWESOME ICON PLACEMENT BTW.
(Anonymous) on July 7th, 2008 08:33 pm (UTC)
Sigh...not a reply...
A few points.


-YOU LIKE LETHE/RANULF TOO?! Do you have any idea how rare it is to actually find someone who approves of that pairing?!

Anyway, I'm glad to meet someone who would also like the two cats to be together. It's my all time favorite FE pairing and it gets really irritating since everyone I see on the Internet is like "they suck together," "oh, you just like them together because they're cats," "Lethe likes Ike!" And the source of all my FE angst, "LETHE/SOREN = love!"

I hate Lethe/Soren. A lot. I don't know where it started, or why, but it is so aggravating to sit down and watch people destroy both Lethe and Soren's characters just for the sake of getting them together. If people like it, fine, but it annoys me to no end when they smash Lethe/Ranulf and praise Lethe/Soren simply because Lethe gave Soren one death threat and somehow that qualifies as "love."

-The problem with people liking/hating Stefan is because he is a hidden character. A VERY well hidden character. Many people go through the game without recruiting him. So, unless they've got a cheat book in their hand, they aren't going to know that Stefan even exists.

-Stefan/Soren, well, since Soren and Ike are so well known, and as you have read before, Stefan is not, it's only natural that people don't really catch that pairing. FE9-10 really pushed Soren's loyalty for Ike at the player making even people who aren't into yaoi (like me,) see that they could be together.

Now, unless they've seen the Soren/Stefan supports in POR or are aware of their support ending, people aren't going to get into it. Besides, some Ike/Soren fans are like rabid animals; all they want is Ike/Soren all the time.

WAIT! Before you say ANYTHING, just let me say that I like Soren/Stefan. It's nice to read, if written well.

-It is not a crime if you think a person goes well with more then one person. I like Ike/Elincia and Geoffery/Elincia. It's not evil or a betrayal, people! It's just the individual's way of expressing approval for both pairings!

Angsting away,

Arae

I was searching for obscure pairings and somehow I ended up here. Oh, the power of google.

-I personally think Ranulf/Lethe had a ton of potential. He'd make Lethe lighten up for once, and she'd make him be more serious. Have you ever seen the fanart site Nannaruya? It's mostly Ranulf/Lethe with a bit of Ranulf/Lyre and some other pairings. The art is really lovely.

-Eh. Once upon a time I loved Stefan, then I got into fandom. Everything is rape, not just IkeSoren wangst fics. Don't believe me? Check the kink meme. Try and find a request that doesn't involve dubcon or noncon. Seriously, I dare you. At least 99% of his fics involve rape and blackmail, the rest are gen. Which makes me WTF because Stefan strikes me as being really asexual, and somehow I never really got that creepy pedophile vibe everyone else was getting. I still love his character, but Soren's overwhelming Ike loyalty coupled with the apparent inability for anyone to write it in a non rapey fashion has killed any Stefan/Soren love I may have had. Also Stefan/Mordecai ftw.

-Heather is annoying? D: Since when was lesbianism and hotness annoying?

Can you read the comics? Or know of a translated version of them?
