    Shipping two female characters together doesn't bother me. Someone who does ship them together telling me that it's okay to "let the pairing be" or "not deny it" because "I can still get a girlfriend" or something along those lines? That's the kind of thing that bothers me about Nanoha yuri shippers. I'm not sure what the hell their thought processes were, but that's the kind of shit I get told just because I spoke up on someone else's behalf about their preference or usage of a hetero pairing in Nanoha.

    Normally I don't mind shipping, but when it comes to shipping, I think people need to realize that it's okay for one's self or for others to appreciate different pairings. Nothing's stopping me from liking two pairings, even if they conflict. But really, it's the Nanoha yuri shippers that freak me out the most. Some of their logic and way of thinking, particularly when it comes to people who don't agree with them... it can get downright disturbing.

    And yeah, I already hit the report button on the post in question. He's just so adamant, though--it's the third time the mods have had to slap him down about the shipping in that thread alone.

    You're welcome. I suppose the debate's a moot point now, given how the moderators axed the whole discussion like I figured they would.

    We're actually fearing Kaijo might be dead. A while back there was some bad weather causing rock slides in the area he lived, and he hasn't been seen online since.

    Well, my preferences for ponytail can't really be explained... that's like asking me why I prefer strawberry over raspberry
    Still, few points that I can still explain are:
    -visible nape of the neck
    -tied hair also gives you "another side" of the character, should she untie them
    -dynamic hair movement (well, usual long black hair also has that feature, but more on the "elegant" side than really dynamic)

    As for Kumiko, her curly hair looks quite... massive and for some reason, I feel that hair style makes her look much older, without being more mature in the process. It isn't it is "off", but well.

    My post wasn't intended as flamebait, though I do believe that less Fate isn't a bad thing, because it lets the franchise story expand in other directions, by giving more screentime to other characters--my point comes off like it's pinning it on Fate, because my post was in response to about Fate's screentime (and frankly she gets a lot of it anywhere else).

    But I felt I couldn't explain that in the thread, because it wasn't allowed anymore. That was the core argument of the people who didn't care for the second movie, and none of them post in that forum anymore for a reason. I'd be willing to explain why in that thread, if I felt that I could safely post without fear of getting thrown out. But by judging from alastoryagami's responses, he isn't going to listen anyway, so it's a moot point.

    Those people didn't get outright bans, btw. They just have their ability to post in the forum revoked; they can post elsewhere, except for Kaijo. Kaijo asked that the eviction on others be lifted, and as a result he got a permanent ban from AS entirely. You can ask Nanya or Sunder the Gold about it. There were others, but I think Kaijo was the only one who knew the full list, but no one can reach him anymore.

    I know you were there. And I know what the notice was about. Doesn't change the fact that the majority of the debate in the movie thread wasn't about shipping Nanoha and Fate together, but about the sheer amount of screentime and focus Fate as an individual gets in the franchise. THAT'S what everyone was arguing about, and that's what got everyone thrown out of the forum.

    Basically, the mods sided with the people who were fans of Fate, and threw out everyone else. It seemed to me, and a whole lot of other people, that if you weren't a fan of Fate, you weren't welcome in the Nanoha forum anymore, courtesy of the mods.

    The issue with the forum is, when the 2nd movie shitstorm happened, a lot of people were kicked out of the Nanoha forum, unable to post, because they sided with the people who didn't like the amount of Fate pandering there is in the fandom. THOSE evictions had nothing to do with shipping Nanoha and Fate together.

    Those people were kicked out because they weren't Fate fans, essentially. We are literally not allowed to not like Fate in the AS fandom anymore. There's a reason why activity there plummeted after the 2nd movie.

    Oh, I am well aware that the Nanoha subforum exploded. I haven't been to the fanfic thread in ages, and I still have an active Nanoha fanfic on ff dot net! I do wish it hadn't gotten to that point, but I think it was coming no matter what we all did (I had gone occasional-lurker because I got real busy, and when I got back... It was best I said nothing). I still like the series... but I remain leery of some of its fandom. It certainly affected me; I don't post nearly as much as I did before.

    Most of my friends from back then I see elsewhere though. Like in the GrimGrimoire social group.

    Ah, that makes far more sense. Sorry to hear that you stopped liking the franchise though.

    Let us start here from Square one. No... from zero!
    You do not wish to know anything. You wish only to speak.
    That which you know, you ignore, because it is inconvenient.
    That which you do not know, you invent.
