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.
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.
read whatever--if it's Ishida, then yey!
have an ideal but enjoy a broad spectrum of interpretations
gonna hurt myself if you write a GAY ISHIDA!
gonna hurt myself if you write a STRAIGHT ISHIDA!
I enjoy the following characterization(s) of Ishida:
classic Japanese doujinshi delicate uke
I like him best in fics/art that manage to capture all sides of him
easily flustered!Ishida of the Social Ineptitude
pretends to be cold!Ishida
really is a hardass!Ishida
I love Orihime!Ishida
I love Ichigo!Ishida
I love my daddy!Ishida
I am boywhore!Ishida
The characterization(s) of Ishida that most annoy me is:
when he cries for no good reason
when he has sex with Renji
when he's physically abused
when he falls in love with Szayel
when he wants Orihime for more than sewing comraderie
an Ishida who melts into goo at a single kiss
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.
