No guys I’m so mad. My girlfriend and I were talking about the original dialogue in MKR last night and I brought up how inconsistent all the translations are with Fuu’s honorifics, and I asked if it’s true that she uses -san on everything and everyone.
And she’s like “oh yeah, it’s true, and one point she says it’s her way of being affectionate.”
AND OBVIOUSLY I DON’T REMEMBER THIS SHIT???
So I ask her where the hell this was?!
And she tells me it’s at the end of the first manga. THE ENTIRE STUPID FRIENDSHIP/SISTERS SPEECH AND HIKARU WORRYING ABOUT BEING LITTLE IS ACTUALLY A WHOLE DIALOGUE ABOUT WHY FUU ADDRESSES PEOPLE FORMALLY AND IM SO MAD????
THIS SCENE AND LOOK AT THAT HIGH QUALITY WEBCAM SHOT
Fuu: “You’re Umi Ryuuzaki-san. May I call you Umi-san? And will Hikaru-san be all right?” Umi: “We’re going to be fulfilling our destiny together in a way, you can drop the honorifics!” Hikaru: “I’m okay with just Hikaru, too.” Fuu: “No, no! For me, adding -san is proof of my deepest affections. : ))))” Umi: Oh.
The level of upset I am is not okay.
Fuu Hououji is literally too cute and I have been missing out on this fact for nine years.
IM SO ANGRY RIGHT NOW WHY DID I NEVER FUCKING KNOW THIS
after you’ve been through like a string of fandoms and you’ve decided your favourite character/s for each one, there will come a day when you will list all your faves from each fandom side by side and look at them carefully and realise
Ever since I read that fic of yours where Kristoff calls himself "of nowhere in particular", I've imagined a scenario where a suitor or other noble tries to woo Anna with gifts and stuff, and Kristoff feels like he needs to match the gesture, ending in adorkable when things go crazy. But do you think Kristoff is the kind of person that would do that? Or is he the kind that wouldn't care about material stuff or simply has that level of confidence in his relationshop with Anna?
I could see him being totally insecure about it and feeling like well fuck, he can’t be good enough for Anna if there’s this other guy who’s brought her like a life-sized unicorn made out of chocolate and a whole bunch of shiny things but at the same time there’s like nothing he could possibly afford that would measure up to whatever some stupid noble guy could buy her so I guess he sulks and is grumpyKris for a few days/weeks until he ultimately does something totally innocuous and sweet like letting her handle the reins to the sleigh for the first time and Anna thinks that’s like a million times better than getting shiny things because she’s got a ton of shiny things (she likes them, she’s like a little magpie but they’re eeeeverywhere) but this is something important to him that he’s letting her do and trusting her with for the first time and then they’re just smushy dorks and Anna tells him that material stuff doesn’t mean as much as dorky Kristoff’s dorky sweetness and aww.
And then they have loud, kinky sex in the sleigh.
(Sorry if you were unaware that it’s Bri is Strung Out on Nyquil Hour there, anon…)
I think one of the biggest things why I don’t like Kristanna fanfics is because they don’t really understand Anna. They make Anna seem weak and always needing Kristoff which is not the case. She is strong, independent,optimistic and not afraid of anything. Sure she’s implusive and clusmy but don’t make her seem fragile or always needing to rely on someone.
Do we really do that? *tilts head*
I do see OP’s point. imho the thing is, that absolutely is part of Anna and Kristoff’s relationship. “weak and needing” him isn’t how I’d put it at all, but I know what you’re talking about, I think. and that’s part of them.
I do join you in bemoaning the lack of feisty, dorky, unbridled fearless enthusiasm on Anna’s part, but also the snarkiness on Kristoff’s. like I don’t think he teases her enough in fanon, whereas in the movie we see that his sass towards her is definitely part of their relationship.
I say all this only having written three kristanna things, two of which were really ‘meh’. alas I lack bunnies.
