I never really understood fannish hate-ons for characters who get in the way of pet ships. I tend to have the opposite problem, which is fleets of ships crashing into each other ("When are Katara and Toph dating if Katara is with Aang and Mai and Zuko? Can Mai/Toph or Katara/Mai/Toph be a thing? And when are Toph and June dating, because they totally are, if it's the future?").

But I'm watching/reading Tenchi Muyo! and I have this problem with Tenchi, see.

It's not that he gets in the way of ships I like. It's not even that he got this god-mode superpower out of no freaking where. (Okay, it was not so much "nowhere" as...I dunno. But I think all the ladies are after Tenchi because he is the most powerful god in the universe? Or something?) It's just that...I wish Tenchi were a lady.

Which, I mean, this is a harem series where the target audience is straight dudes! (See: a bunch of super-powerful and hot ladies are romancing a perfectly average dude who is actually THE MOST POWERFUL BEING IN THE UNIVERSE, maybe.) And I can't fault it for being what it is. But I did try removing Tenchi entirely in my head and replaced him with Mihoshi (naw), and then I wondered what would happen if she were always-a-cis-woman (enh), and then I was like: "What if Tenchi were a trans woman?" and then I was like: "OMFG YESSSSSSS."

And that fixed everything, ever.

ETA: MtF!Tenchi's name is Yumi (祐美), partly because she was adamant that her name have "useful" or "necessary" or "helpful" in it.

There is a Phoenix Wright live-action movie.

And it is directed by Takashi Miike.

TAKASHI. MIIKE.

Here is a trailer.



That is all.
terajk: Ryoga, grabbing Ranma by his pajama-top and shouting: "Do you remember where my house is?!" (ranma & ryoga)
This didn't work, because now I want the Epic Story of How Ranma Taught Ryoga to Find the Cat Cafe, which is much easier/more fun than the Epic Story I am supposed to be writing. In case fandom wants to write me such a story, per [personal profile] melannen's idea here (bats eyelashes), perhaps you will find these thoughts helpful:

Didn't I write 2000 words about you already, jerk? )

Wow, that is some hardcore procrastination right there.

I know; I know; I put characters with disabilities together just because I can. But, internet. 

INTERNET.

LOOK AT THIS, INTERNET!

IT'S LIKE IF THE TOPH-AZULA THING HAPPENED IN REAL LIFE CANON!:


Mousse and Ryoga: OTP forever


[Transcript: Ryoga and Mousse in hot springs, visible from the waist up, not wearing shirts, grabbing each other's hands and grinning and laughing.

RYOGA: "Excellent, if we work as a team how can we possibly get lost?"

MOUSSE: "It's the perfect partnership!"]


Now, it's too much for me to hope for the Epic Adventures of Mousse and Ryoga, wherein their respective disabilities are treated seriously and they kick ass and take names and perform awesome Interdependence Fu (which is nowhere near as ridiculous as canon makes it look; I know this from personal experience). But, goddamn, fandom, do you not see the ENORMOUS SHIPPING POTENTIAL HERE?

SHAME ON YOU ALL. *pouts in corner*
terajk: Ryoga, grabbing Ranma by his pajama-top and shouting: "Do you remember where my house is?!" (ryoga: do you remember where my house is)
My heart, it has exploded. I want epic fic of this RIGHT NOW. Super bonus points if a crossover with Journey to the West is involved.

...is apparently:

awesome x awesome = AWESOME

ETA: It's not just shipping. This formula is exactly what spawned the Toph-Azula thing. /ETA

Ranma 1/2 whining/silliness )

(These are notes for my project for NaNoWriMo. Read at your own risk).

Abandon hope, all ye who enter here )

I should probably not admit this in public:

[Vague Avatar: The Last Airbender spoilers are vague, but possibly not vague enough]

Sokka, weep for me )
