OH DEAR LORD. Every now and then I'm hit with some kind of fangirl nostalgia for side characters from an anime I watched long ago. For some reason I tend to obsess over certain random ass characters that are either completely to the side or are only important in bursts.
To the best of my ability, I will list these characters.
Keep in mind that to make this list, I have had to love them enough to either roleplay as them or write fan fiction on their behalf. Haha.
I won't mention the pairings I like, as they are embarrasing, nor will I be putting down my fan fiction account, as I believe my writing to be sub-par. =X
But do know: slash pairings. Slash pairings out the ass. If I don't mention something, it's slash. =3
Also I don't roleplay anymore.
Kankuro. I love him for the characterization I'd given him myself — smart but kind of socially inept, obsessed with puppeteering, and blunt, but with the ability to be conniving and strategic... in battle. He's not so good with actually interacting with people. I don't think I hit too far from the mark in what's presented in the anime and manga, honestly. It's not one of those, "I LOVE HIM FOR HOW I WRITE HIM" where I make him into some kind of goddamn prince, but... Well, he doesn't get a lot of screen time in most place, so my love of him is odd to say the least. I have written fan fiction with him, and he's actually one of my favorite characters to use. Never roleplayed him because... how many people want to play opposite Kankuro?
Shino Aburame. WHY DO I LOVE YOU SO SO SO MUCH. Him I love exactly as he is — easily offended when people don't seem to care about him, but at the same time, never trying to be noticed. Likes bugs. I like bugs (... really, I do, they're interesting. IRL I could totally marry an entomologist, so long as they kept Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches the FUCK away from me). He's also really funny in a dry way, if that makes any sense. I've always liked writing him and making him slowly go through developing emotion, because it's been stated before (somewhere) that of all the Aburame, he appears to have the greatest capacity for emotion. Slightly less fan fiction than Kankuro, but also no roleplays. Once again! No one plays opposite this guy.
FUCKIN' HIDAN. I love this crazy bastard. Why? I DON'T EVEN KNOW. I love his crazy. Adore his psycho. He's so fun to do! I love him so much I even did the dreaded Hidan x female OC pairing, and I hate hate hate OCs with a passion (in anime based roleplays, anyways). And holy shit, it was as fun as I imagined. I love delving into the psyche of his cult-addled mind, giving him personal rituals to Jashin, and the way he wears his Akatsuki robe is pretty cool, too. I have tons of wallpapers of him. BD I like the psychos.
Suigetsu. When I play him, he's like... a combination of my characterization for Kanky and Hidan. He wants to fight and kill and junk, but at the same time, he's a teenaged boy so he's kinda focused on primal needs like food and sex. But he's not a ladies man, so he's just kind of fail. I probably love him because of his sarcasm and junk. I'd also love to see him bitchslap Sasuke so hard. Like Hidan, I did Suigetsu x female OC and loved it.
Kabuto. I loved him when I was twelve. I wanted him with Sakura through some crazy kidnapped plot or something, thinking that being with him would redeem how annoying she is. I love his bitchy attitude towards Sasuke. But even since he became Kabuchimaru, my love for him has dropped drastically... Used to write and roleplay him, but not for years.
Karl. The Phantom. It's hard to explain my love of Karl to people. But you know, I love them psychos, so the weird sadism thing he's got going on with Saya is a plus in my book. He's crazy. All he wants to do is to serve her, but she doesn't give a fuck about him unless he's the only one that will do. Amsel recruited him as a science experiment. Only Solomon treats him like he's people. I feel for him and I think he's crazy because he's been conditioned to be, like the red-headed stepchild of the family. I really do adore him and all the facets of his crazy~ Roleplayed him once and dropped it because the person I was roleplaying across made a Mary Sue. D:
Hatsuharu Sohma. I lovelovelove him and his bipolar-ness. I love him when he goes Black, and I love him when he comes back. I actually fell in love with him as soon as he tripped Kyo and was all, "WELL at least no one important got hurt." He's airheaded and spacy half the time and then BADASS (... ... ... well, he's BAD, but he gets his ASS kicked...) the other half of the time. And the line, "Want me to prove it's natural?" will forever stand out as one of the single funniest lines in an anime ever. XD I roleplayed and wrote fan fiction with him, but when I was just starting on both. He got a lot of attention, but it was the crappiest of quality, I can say.
Keep in mind that they only made the list if I attempted writing them, and also keep in mind I (mostly) roleplayed and wrote fan fiction many years ago. xD You're welcome for this strange delving into the fan girl mind.
