Virgin!Ishida, Boywhore!Ishida and other Quincy characterizations in fanfic poll



First a fic-rec for you RenIshi fans: Surpass Me in which there's a delightful unexepected comeuppance and what followed in the comments section was a bit of interesting speculation about Uryuu's character. I have some thoughts but I'd like to hear yours first.

Poll #1103692 How Do You Like Your Fanfic Uryuu?

When it comes to fanfic Uryuu, I'm ....

particular to my ideal of IC and avoid fics (e.g., yaoi, seme, too-uke, het) that don't portray him MY way.
20(13.2%)
read whatever--if it's Ishida, then yey!

1(0.6%)

The characterization(s) of Ishida that most annoy me is:

when he cries for no good reason
6(3.8%)
when he has sex with Renji
0(0.0%)
when he's physically abused
2(1.3%)
when he falls in love with Szayel
2(1.3%)
when he wants Orihime for more than sewing comraderie
9(5.7%)
gay!Ishida
2(1.3%)
bisexual!Ishida
0(0.0%)
an Ishida who melts into goo at a single kiss
4(2.5%)
OVERLY cranky!snarky!Ishida
0(0.0%)
boyvirgindon'tpleasedon't!Ishida
5(3.2%)


I'm so curious to hear what you think. I've been criticized for writing a too-emotionless Ishida before and I'm in the middle of a mooshy!Ishida WIP where I'm trying to ride his feelings more closely. For me, I do have a fixed "canon" Ishida in my head and its a matter of how to present him versus how he presents himself.

Last, Bleach fans don't miss this: CRAZY BLEACH FLASHDANCE!
