Yet another Orochi-related rant...Will this chick ever shut up? [Feb. 27th, 2006|06:34 am]

Has anyone other than me noticed the tendency for fanbrats to be unabashedly biased towards certain villains depending on their fanbase/looks? I'm referring to Itachi vs. Orochimaru and the rest of the Akatsuki (aptly dubbed 'those other guys') When writing fanfiction, most writers seem to be focused on His Almighty Bishieness Itachi and MAYBE Kisame as a carboard cutout sidekick for comic relief, while the rest of the more interesting Akatsuki members get stiffed on page time. It could be partially to blame that said authoress isn't completely up-to-date on the manga and hasn't heard about these people, but in some causes, it's the cause of favoritism instead. Zetsu isn't the most likely target for fangirl bait, after all, and neither are Sasori or Deidara- Unless you take away Dei's mouth-hands and Sasori's puppet shell, that is.

However, others cannot say the same for Orochimaru. In the case of Itachi-worshipping and Snake Sennin-bashing, it's almost always a case of pure, unadultered fanbrattiness. It's especially noticeable in the amount of detail that the writer gives each character, as in this rhethorical excerpt; 'Itachi's long, flowing locks of raven hair constrasted the dusky autumn sky, blood red eyes gleaming with an eerie power. Premature moonlight gleamed against the ivory skin of his lithe, flawless body and the ropy muscles of his bare arms and legs. Then he pushed Orochimaru off a cliff and Orochimaru died. Stupid Snake-bastard.' (Over-exaggerated, but you get my gist.)

Maybe it's because Itachi's younger, angstier, and 'better-looking' than Orochi that explains why he's more well-liked; I still think it's a shitty reason to favor one character over another. (Sorry, this wasn't meant to stereotype any Itachi fans in the community! I'm referring only to the ones that write badfic, and it's doubtful that any of those people are lurking here.)

Awww

...but especially with girls...although, actually, yeah, probably guys too if they swing that way, you'll think that Deidara's mouth-hands would be a major attraction!

As for Sasori...well just read through some of the comments at akatsuki_love when he was first reveals to be a puppet...it's really hard core...

To be honest, I don't think Itachi is that pretty, or girly. He's handsome, like his father. I have no idea where fangirls get delicate pale from, and raven locks? His hair is brown, like his father's hair. Sasuke took after his mom.

//Premature moonlight gleamed against the ivory skin of his lithe, flawless body and the ropy muscles of his bare arms and legs. Then he pushed Orochimaru off a cliff and Orochimaru died. Stupid Snake-bastard.'//

Your exaggeration made my day!

Seriously, there are some people who give love to the other Akatsuki members, and take them seriously, but since I'm too cracked out from the cold weather and the sugar right now, have some Orochimaru x Anko tongue hentai:


Warning: NOT WORK SAFE AT ALL

Hentai Tree - Orochimaru and Anko Cunnilingus

Normally, I'm not a fan of OroAnko at all, but damn, Orochimaru's tongue!

< / crack whore...signing out >

BTW, I found this post through LJ Seek: Deidara, which is why I'm so random because I have other posts to check out because somebody somewhere had to have drawn some Deidara hentai/cheesecake and somebody on LJ ought to have linked to it. So yes, I'm in shallow mood, but meh.

Re: Awww

Un, yeah! Deidara has major hentai possibilities with those mouths. And Sasori's even kind of cute inside his puppet shell, in a grumpy, centaurian-esque sort of way.

I sort of do, but that's only beause of his uberlong eyelashes and dimunitive form. It's kind of hard to take the dude seriously when he's shorter than Kurenai.

It did, now did it? Thank you! ^^

Mmm, hentai...I'm not one for OroAnko either, but that's pretty damn hot. I think I might have seen some Deidara cheesecake around here somewhere, and chances are that you could probably find it at ichaicha_naruto, if you haven't alread checked there.

My perception of Pretty/NotPretty Itachi might be the manga/anime difference

I first saw Itachi in anime, and it wasn't until I finished watching the waterfall episode, that I started following the manga. I never noticed things like eyelashes then...mnnnn, I should totally go back and download the chapters where Itachi appears then! It's also been pointed out earlier that characters look more pretty and cute in manga then in anime, so that could explain it.

I just recently joined ichaicha_naruto, but I didn't find any Deidara stuff when I skimmed the titles or when I ran it through LJ Seek.

Frankly, Deidara is so pretty, I'll be okay with cheesecake or hentai featuring Deidara as man, woman, OR even hermaphrodite! *is omnisexual* I was going through the older deidara_un entries, and somebody actually answered a gender debate with a link to a hermaphrodite!Deidara picture, but sadly, that was about half a year ago and the link no longer works. Somebody earlier had also answered with “he’s a boy” with a link to a hentai picture that is suppose to show that, but THAT also didn’t work anymore, damn my lateness.

Orochimaru's tongue...so, wow. There totally need to be a hentai movie with Orochimaru in in.

Re: My perception of Pretty/NotPretty Itachi might be the manga/anime difference

That could explain it. The little things are really difficult to notice in the anime as it is, and things go by a lot more quickly as well...With the manga, you're given time to squint at the insignificant details that can change perceptions of a character. It's weird.

Sorry. I guess I'm just too optimistic in the search for Dei smut, even if I could have SWORN that I saw some of him a while back. Maybe the links don't work?

I saw the hemaphrodite pic. xD Disturbing, but funny as hell. He's gorgeous, true enough- If I hadn't known better, I would have sworn on my immortal soul that he was female when I first saw him in the manga.

There should! I always had the creeping suspiscion that Orochi was a male prostitute to begin with, so it would only make sense... >_>

Yummy.

Favor-ism is in a majority of peoples work. Including mine, since I lack the ability to picture someone I do not like. Sasori in his shell for one is something I cannot do that. I do not like not seeing a persons face. It is not because outside of his shell he was the best-looking character in the whole manga to me (even beating out Kimimaro); I just cannot take not seeing the face.
I started reading another fan-fiction yesterday and I could actually say that the way Oreo (That is what I call Orochimaru) appeared was unexpected. The way that he was described sounded like him but usually people do not pay much attention to him. I was just looking for it but I do not remember what chapter it was... I believe the story was Winter Release though.
I do feel that there is as much Oreo bashing as there is Itachi. I hate the Itachi bashing because they never actually have him in the story; they have Sasuke have some nightmare or something about Itachi buring down their house or Naruto being tortured by him (but in past tense...). It annoys me because their just doing that to make Itachi look bad. Okay, if you have him in the story and he is a bad person, I do not have a problem with that. When he is not but you still write a few unneeded sentences to point out how much you do not like him, then that gets on my nerves.

Does any of that make sense? I think faster then i write... ;]
