"Can you beat me?"

I was just reading Chiya's senbatsu post and someone on it threw out the 'age difference' argument as a reason why they find it hard to see Tezuka/Ryoma.

The 'age difference' argument really bothers me, not just because they're only 2 years apart, but because it seems to indicate, perhaps, a misunderstanding of Tezuka's character. Or perhaps just a willful misunderstanding of the pairing itself. And it is the most frequent argument I see mentioned as to why more people don't ship Tezuka and Ryoma. I can see why it's easy to read them that way, if only because of the height difference. But Ryoma is basically that much shorter than all of his teammates. It's not as if Tezuka's an exception or anything. He's going to grow at some point. And that's just one reason that I feel the 'age difference' argument is primarily an aesthetic argument. I think it Collapse )

And I just spent like 45 minutes writing this. Gah, fandom. Ooooh, look, TezuRyo on my flist. FINALLY.

ETA: and practically the first line of said TezuRyo fic is: The first paragraph of Ryoma’s essay reads, “In the future, I want to defeat Tezuka-buchou. I want to become that much better so that buchou can become better, too, and then I’ll have to improve again.”

See? SEE? That's what I'm talking about. SO MUCH TO LOVE. *_*

Gnarly.

This is probably old news, but I don't get out much.

The top 4 concert tours in the U.S. right now are:

1. The Rolling Stones
2. U2
3. Bon Jovi
4. Aerosmith.


Tonight we're going to party like it's 1987!
