Xenobiacat's Profile Picture
I am a fanfiction writer, and I also write original fiction. My favorite fandoms to write for include: Final Fantasy 7, James Cameron's Avatar, Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) and Gackt's Moonchild. I will only be posting fanfiction works on this site. To read my original work, visit my home site. Be aware that it contains homosexual relationships and M-preg fiction.

On the subject of uncensored fanfiction that may be too mature to share here on Deviant Art, you can find my Yaoi work at Ygallery, here:…

Both het and yaoi fanfiction can be found at…

Pairing wars are not constructive criticism

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 17, 2014, 3:25 PM
This seems to be a problem that most artists and writers come across: petty criticism. Granted, I don't get feedback here on DA at all most of the time, but one of the things that annoys me the most is the "Pairing wars" folk that feel they simply MUST complain that their OTP is not featured. This is especially abrasive when it comes to my original fiction. They're my characters. Don't tell me it's not canon for character A to eventually hook up with character B. If you don't like the pairing, skip their romantic scenes together. Don't waste your time or mine commenting that you "can barely stand" to read their interactions, simply because they are not your pairing of choice. That irks me so much as an author, and I know it has to irk artists as well. There are many pairings in fanfiction that I do not ship, but I will still offer compliments on an art or literature piece featuring them that I think is done well. I can't stand the "Valenwind" pairing in FF7 (mostly because I think Shera deserves to be with Cid after the shit she goes through to keep him and Dirge totally turned me on to Reeve/Vincent, but anywho), but I have never thought to open a compliment with: "Well, I hate this pairing and want to vomit because you've included/featured them, but..."

Come on, now. That's just petty. If you know it's a fic or art piece centering on your NTP (Not True Pairing, for those who aren't familiar), then either do not read/view it, or suck it up and accept that the author/writer has chosen this pairing for a reason. It's really very simple. If you want to support a friend that ships said pairing, then keep your dislike of them to yourself and focus on the story or art itself, and the good points or what you think could be improved.

One of the worst things about fandoms is people's inability or outright refusal to accept--or at least tolerate--pairings other than those they particularly ship. If you like a story or piece of art, just say so. There's no need to add the "I hate this paring but..."

I'm about to start a new Undertaker/Vincent roleplay with my partner, and I need a title for when I start publishing it as a story. It will be the usual blend of drama, humor and romance, with some action and tragedy.
