I used to be really conflicted when the top of my OTP becomes the bottom, but I have learned now to appreciate both sides. But I still prefer my OTP top as top--!!!

I understand this so well! I have a lot of moments where I just feel like "oh gods, there's no way that one is bottom I don't accept this!!!" and that happens so much...

reminded me of that one episode where Kae and Nishina fought over the same thing. too bad they didn't end up together.

AND WHY FIGHT OVER WHO'S THE UKE OR SEME. REVERSAL'S THE BEST.

BL fandoms tend to fight over who's the bottom and who's top in a relationship like this, it's very much real.

Seriously though, OTP order fights are scary. I've seen fandoms war within themselves over this, it was both hilarious and terrifying to watch.

However, I just noticed that BL fangirls fight about this much more than GL and het.

This is why I don't like fujoshi. Not joking, these arguments are specifically why I don't like interacting with BL fandom

Eh, I prefer too short to too long

I haven't read much, so maybe I'm just ill-informed, but BL seems... hyper heteronormative. Like, even Yuri isn't entirely free from heteronormativity - consider the rarity of butch/butch pairings - but even with butch/femme pairings, which most closely resemble heterosexual relationships, the characters have more freedom to make up for eachother's short comings in a more organic manner, rather than following some script - one character being The Man and the other being The Woman. One character is more masculine than the other, sure, but both of them are girls/women, and the text is clear on that fact.

I think it's already amazing to have a partner who has the same otp as you. Imagine being into ChikaRiko but your loved one loves YoshiRiko.

I have the same problem when it comes to OTP roles. Do I like it the same or do I prefer reversal? Reversal is a nice change of pace, but sometimes, I can't help but prefer the usual roles. Even when I'm writing. I just can't help it but to write the MC as a bottom just because her girlfriend is a succubus.

Big Himawari and Sakurako energy here
The couples that fight the most are the friskiest
They probably fuck like tigers behind closed doors

Ah yes.. the Fujoshi shipping wars, definitely something they do and not something I do with Yuru Yuri and love live,I'm not enraged when someone "miss-ships" my ships, nope NOT AL ALL! lmao.

But that's just about who gets who, when it comes to who's top or bottom I really could not care less lol

I'm glad I'm not a BL fan, these two make being one seem like a lot of work.

That's because when you're scissoring you give and receive at the same time. There's ambivalence, there's fluctuation. Different readings are possible and fun to compare.

Nothing like the matter of whose dick goes in whose butthole which is SERIOUS BUSINESS.

Yui x Kyouko otp, right? Ayano can go kiss a duck!

And Sakurako better fall off a cliff, so Himawari can find someone better!
