So I found this neat questionnaire (I guess it's like a really long-ass meme?) about Tseng x Rufus on some Japanese fansite. I thought it'd be fun to do, so I translated it.
I will be glad to rewrite it a bit for Rude x Reno.
Thing is, the Japanese fandom is so bogged down by convention that these sort of things operate on the established premise that [taller or older or brawnier dude] is the seme and [shorter or younger or smaller dude] is the uke, ALL THE TIME NO EXCEPTIONS. If you see something like, Sephi is an uke, it's not for Cloud or Genesis, it's like, he's 12 and being molested by Hojo. (That reminds me, I'm out of every kind of detergent and soap because I POURED IT ALL IN MY EYES AFTER SIMPLY LEARNING OF SUCH A PAIRING'S EXISTENCE)
Anyway, so this presupposes that Rufus is the uke and I have never seen any J-fandom where this is not the case. I mean, yeah, sure, that's my premise too (the president of the world just wants to be loved IN THE BUTT) but it's stupid to just presuppose
that. So I'm going to add a question 0.
There are also some dumb questions like "what fashion label would they like" and I'm like, fuckall if I know…YEAH SURE Tseng is a hipster and wears Ed Hardy off duty? Rufus likes Abercrombie but mostly for the shopping bags? What am I supposed to come up with? So I replaced it with what do they like to drink. Nyahahaha.
The Japanese pairing nickname for Tseng x Rufus is TsonRu (Tson is how the guy's name is written in katakana; Tseng is presumably the Wade-Giles romanization, while the more proper Pinyin would be Zeng, which you see on a lot of J-fansites, ANYWAYS) which I do happen to think is ZOMG KAWAII. Yeah.( Collapse )
Well that took my entire evening! And soon I must rewrite it so that EPK can also enjoy it.
