--The Sess/Kag Pairing--
I hate it. I hate it with a passion. Look in my stories, I've written a parody of them! I've accepted that for some reason, many authors think this pairing plausible. But I just cannot see it! I mean...come on! When do either of them ever express the slightest interest in each other? There's lots more evidence to support Sess/Rin and Sess/Kagura pairings than there is to support Sess/Kagome, and the latter two are much more believable.
Sess/Kag does not make sense, ok? It's not opinion, it's fact. Why is it fact? Because its a fact Sesshomaru and Kagome have never shown any romantic interest in each other, it's a fact he's tried to kill her on a more than one occasion, its a fact Kagome loves Inuyasha (she says so herself, thank you), and its pretty obvious he loves her back. Sess/Kag ain't gonna happen, accept it. Yes, we have fanfiction, but unless its an AU, you're gonna have to pull a pretty big stretch of the canon to get those two together. I've heard there's stories that keep them in character and still get them together. I don't care. A warm fire I have to wade through a musky swamp of crap to get to isn't worth my time. Take it from me, most Sess/Kag stories are just badly written, plain and simple. And I've read my share, I'm not without justification in my hatred. If I've left you a bad review for a Sess/Kag story, well, sorry but your fault. I don't hate every Sess/Kag story I've read, but if I read a story that has little to no value, guess what? I'm gonna say so. I call it like it is, and if I think your story sucks, then I'll tell you. If you can't handle a bad review, then don't post the fic.
I loathe this pairing with a fury unseen since the times of religious persecution. Sess/Kag stories by mere definition defy all canon logic, and more often than not screw with other established canon facts, make characters act OOC, introduce numerous shallow 2D OCs with no backstory, and lift Sesshomaru onto a high pedestal while kicking Inuyasha down to the role of abusive jerk in the same motion. Somehow I doubt that the two of them fantasize about each other, or have always found each other attractive, but Sess/Kag fics do it. If you wanna pull that crap, write an AU, keep the canon canon, ok? And if you think that I'm the only one that thinks this, think again, look at my parody; 250 reviewers, 4000 hits and 80 favs can't all be wrong.
In the meantime, I try and stay away from Sess/Kag fics, but now and then I bite the bullet and read one to see if it's half-decent. I've come to expect very little from Sess/Kag pairings, and in expecting little, my expectations are still not met. Is it that difficult to *not* write Inuyasha as an asshole, or to keep the characters in-character? Apparently, it is.
