Anonymous said: this isn't mean to say your ship is gross or anything i'm just wondering why you ship ringou ?
Ah hello, I was honestly waiting on a RinGou ask but thanks for not being rude about it :’D
Um well… It’s not because it’s incest that I ship it, but because incest is so forbidden and taboo, and I think it’d be the type that could actually work to make it normal.
For example, I don’t really ship Joey x Serenity (from Yu-Gi-Oh!) because there’s a strong sibling bond there that I just don’t think can be broken.
Like, I’m the type that believes most ships can work out. Most most most. Just some take more effort and time, and that could be years. Joey x Serenity… I see it, and yes, that’s one of those that would take a while, but I don’t ship it because the sibling bond is so strong and you can see that right away. Like with Joey x Yugi, they’re best friends, but their friendship bond is so strong that I just can’t bring myself to ship it romantically/sexually.
My favourite incest ship is Inucest, which is Sesshomaru/Inuyasha. These two only see each other as brother’s when they want to. Their sibling relationship is not strong. At all. So with a lot of work these two could actually be a couple, and it’d just be… hot overall *_* But then add in that forbidden appeal because even if they rarely look at each other like they’re brothers, they’re still brothers. That’s where the incest appeal comes in.
The fact that they’re demons and they’re in the fuedeal era and they’re practically royalty - lots of interesting scenarios~~~
Granted, I consider myself a very passionate person. Romance and sex is special in my eyes. I believe that you connect on another level during sex/after you have sex. But I can’t exactly explain that connection very well. It’s just the fact that you literally become one. You see someone at their most vulnerable, in all their naked glory. You see them close up. You see the other person do/say things they would not ever say outside of sex. You hear them make noises and move their bodies in ways they would never do outside of sex.
…Sorry. This really is me in most ways. The Cancer.
I’m very much against violence. Especially to women but also to someone who may be viewed as a love interest.
Sesshomaru has punched Inuyasha. Light has punched L. Rin tried to punch Haru.
If you ever want to inflict violence on someone you’d also like to bang, then you’re kinda a douche and not safe to be around. You’re a potential abuser. It’s fine to ship violent ships tho, as long as you realise it’s unhealthy, it more than likely cannot be changed into a healthy ship (rape and abuse ≠ love), and you’re completely against it in real life.
Now, none of those above are canon ships - as in, none of them have ever expressed any romantic/sexual interest in each other. As shipper’s, we like to look for the undertones, but really, no, nothing.
Sesshomaru punched Inuyasha because he’s his brother and that’s what brothers do and he needed to wake Inuyasha up (tho that’s not the first time they did it, but this time it was less as rivals and more like comrades).
Light and L started fighting with each other because they were in a disagreement with each other.
Rin went to punch Haru because… uh… I can’t remember but it was very dramatic and Rin was emotional and he cried as well. But this is usually a guy thing. A friendship guy thing. Punching each other lets out sad/angry friendship feeeeels.
None of these showed any romantic/sexual interest in each other before those punches. I would not ship any of them before the punches. Afterwards, though? You don’t know (esp if the series/show ended). Feelings may have developed. You can headcanon whatever you want (best if it had some canon evidence behing it tho). And I really and truly believe that if someone develops feelings for another person, the thought of enacting violence on them would disgust them. Or even seeing that person being treated violently. The past is the past. There was no feelings then. Only friendship/rivalry.
Some people said Rin totes had feelings for Haru throughout the first season. That’s gross because he went to hit the person people claim he supposedly had feelings for. That makes him abusive.
I ship them all post-punch because I can easily say that a punch (or any other form of violence) was never inflicted on the other person again, because the friendship/rivalry feelings changed to sexual/romantic. (With Light and L it’d obviously be some kinda AU…)
Wanting to go out with them / wanting to fuck them > wanting to hit them / abuse them.
So yes, I don’t ship the Inucest from the series. That punch happened in one of the last eps. So I ship Inucest post-series. I can imagine Sesshomaru seducing Inuyasha sometime after the series ended and then they fuck and start a forbidden love affair, and Sesshomaru or Inuyasha would never raise their fist to each other again because they connected in the way I explained above.
Eh… Sorry, this all sounds like it has nothing to do with RinGou but it does a little bit! I’m just trying to express that I don’t ship all incest and when I do I have limitations.
Okay so with RinGou, the appeal of this was aloof!Rin/lonely!Gou.
aloof x lonely is literally like… my favourite thing in the world.
I’m gonna go into examples again >3> With Puppyshipping (Kaiba x Joey), after they get together, and Kaiba see’s Joey’s living condition, he allows Joey to move in. But Kaiba is a workaholic. He just has so much to do. Joey constantly thinks he’s not on Kaiba’s mind anymore. The spark must be gone. He’s starting to feel insecure about this. What if he’s not good enough? What if Kaiba goes somewhere else after work and then comes home to Joey?
But when Kaiba gets his chance, he proves his love for Joey in many marvelous ways, and Joey realises he was just being paranoid and poor Kaiba has actually been stressing out about not ever being there for Joey but there was nothing he could do because of deadlines and stuff, and so he makes a bunch of promises to himself to treat Joey to everything and anything when his work is done. Kaiba just has a cold demeanor so that’s why it was hard to know what Kaiba was thinking and it he really truly cared for Joey. But he does, and its still strong.
You see Rin’s mind always on swimming and Haru and just… angst angst angst. His sister wouldn’t be on his mind so often. So no, their bond isn’t as strong as most brothers and sisters. This is saddening to Gou, who loves her big bro. Makes her feel like a lonely sister who doesn’t really have a brother.
But you just know, because of his character type, he’d be there to defend her and protect her if she really needed it.
I emphasise really because I think their bro/sister relationship is actually pretty realistic. The whole overprotective big brother act you see in a lot of TV shows/animes is just… like… when does that actually happen? Where the brother is so protective of his little sis and only wants the best and chases off any guys that want her. It’s cool to think about but I imagine that its pretty damn rare in real life. But if siblings aren’t hating each other in these TV shows/animes, then this is what’s happening, the over-protective big bro act. It’s always one or the other.
You see in the new series, the Captain’s little bro is pining after Gou and Rin isn’t being all, “DON’T YOU DARE LOOK AT MY SISTER LIKE THAT YOU’RE NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR HER” but at the same time he’s not completely ignoring it. I think that’s very realistic. He still has Gou on his mind. He’s still aware he’s a big brother.
…Now, my shipper self wants the over-protective big bro act >3> But I really love how the anime is doing it. It really is one of the most realistic animes I’ve ever seen tbh.
And then, again, the appeal of this ship was the mixture of aloof x lonely combined with the incest and how I’d love for all that to change and just… ya know~ <3
Eh… That explains it really xD Sorry, I go into waaay too much detail so that less confused questions come my way cos I didn’t explain properly.
Why don’t you do us a favor and go fuck your brother or something instead of shitting up the rinharu tag?
