Zoicite☆For all I carry are murdered

You know what I absolutely and utterly hate?

When perfectly awesome male characters are wasted on female characters that are made of fail. Such is the case with this audio book I'm listening too. It's a cheesy supernatural romance novel produced by Harlequin (that might of been the first warning sign honestly). But yes, the female vampire is made of fail and then some. The male I definitely enjoy, and the secondary ship of vampire/werewolf *which is very cute*. (because let's face it, I can't approach anything from a gen perspective.. unless of course I'm watching animal planet, or Dora the Explorer).

But the main female character suffers the "OH MY GOD I CANNOT DECIDE" error code, because she cannot choose between her sire (obvious choice.. duh) and fledgling. It makes me long for Affinity which I'm still downloading since I hate rapidshit and it's "You can only download something every twenty minutes" bullcrap.

On a plus note. Pet Shop of Horrors: Tokyo makes me happy. I forgot how much I loved Count D. I miss the presence of Detective Orcot, but at least he makes little cameos as D tries to run from him. Escaping your boyfriend is easier said then done

I have the exact opposite opinion, haha. I dislike how people automatically fault the lady in a love triangle for not being able to choose between lovers. I mean, it's a hard decision most of the time!

I READ THAT FIRST PART TOTALLY WRONG. I'M SORRY BB, and I'm sorry for all of the edits. D:

No, I didn't want her to be replaced by a dude, I just don't like it that she's made of so much fail. I can't imagine the guy being gay. I just wish that she had been written better too. And I think that the love triangle is something that someone needs to be skillful in order to attempt writing. It would be quite alright if the guy number two wasn't such a dickweed and wasn't always playing mind games with her, while guy number one was at home cooking dinner (O positive blood) for her while she went and slept with this guy.

I have no problem with love triangles, or female characters, and I enjoy heterosexual romance, I think that this romance novel though was pretty subpar. I've definitely read better.

That's alright! I understand! ♥

Affinity was good but it made me sad. I finished reading it last night. I'm not going to say anything about it though until you finish reading it. ♥

Now I shall read more Pet Shop of Horrors Tokyo!

Well there is always something a little bittersweet about the end of a Sara Water's book. I need to bring in the others for you to read. *nods* I'll do that. I suggest Tipping the Velvet but Fingersmith is highly excellent, it all depends.. one deals with issues of girls dressing up as boys on stage, but the other one involves issues of class.

Count D is always made of awesome and win!

I will read the manga and then get started on the books! ♥ I'm excited, there is so much to read now!

I'm completely with you on that...sometimes there's a male character with depth, and it's like the author/writer/etc doesn't even try with the female romantic interest. She's just 'cute' or 'pretty' or something else that's a-dime-a-dozen (misa of death note comes to mind, but of course there are many other examples)...

Yeah, I mean I've read some pretty vile males too (like the third in the love triangle, he's pretty vile) but it seems as if the author just reaches for what they know and that is the "Princess" stereotype, you know. Or they polish their own personality and then just sort of stick it in and then it lacks any sort of quality that makes me really want to identify with the woman.

(I'm a sucker for a strong woman archtype... Mulan was so totally my hero as far as Disney heroines go)

Ahahah that's alright.. and you know, Ican see though honestly female characters have gotten better in the past couple of years. They are nothing like the Miaka or Usagi that I remember, but I do require that a female has TEH BALLS! Just because they are more fun to fangirl honestly.

I hate it when it seems like female characters in stories aren't as well fleshed-out as their male counterparts...and it's always a shame to see that happen since there are quite a few good stories out there that are able to have a strong balance/dynamic between the two quite well (so it just makes you wonder why other ones aren't able to do so that much more). I can definitely understand your frustration at that!
