Shameful Pairing Meme: Kanji/Teddie by Alias-Hugo Shameful Pairing Meme: Kanji/Teddie by Alias-Hugo
I've been wanting to try this meme for a long time, but had difficulty choosing which pairing of mine was the most shameful while still being entertaining enough to do a meme about.
Keep in mind that I spend about 90% of what I draw leaves me feeling deeply ashamed (and my interests, opinions, and appearance) - So I get the feeling I don't have the healthiest concept of shame.
:dummy:
I drew it in the style of someone whose sanity is slowly disintegrating! Yay!

So I started with Kanji/Teddie because I thought it would be perfect for the meme: there are canon hints but it's quite out there pairing-wise, but at the same it's cute and fluffy enough that it makes it entertaining fodder for the meme. Also there is a lot made of Kanji trying to stroke Teddie's fur in the game, which just screams "shameful pairing meme" to me. :la:

Kanji -> [link] is a tough-guy who has a secret weakness for cute animals (he knits plushies)
Teddie -> [link] is... well, he's sort of a talking plush toy that became real so he could 'score with the chicks' (but he doesn't seem picky, getting Kanji to 'smooch' him and saying endless things that indicate he has a crush on Yu, our main character)


You can probably see why I ship them... I didn't see it coming either but that's the beauty of crack ships.
This is not the most shameful thing from P4 that I ship, but it's up there. And it's the funniest (I think)

Comments always appreciated! :la:

:XD: Thanks very much! This is of course a joke-pairing but it's one I find very funny!

Even since drawing this I've come up with so many different Persona pairings, I'll have to do another Shameful Pairing meme

I do ship it I just recognise the main reason I do so is because it's funny to me. I have a lot of different pairings I like for each character :)

We'd be here all day if I told you all of em but currently favouring Kanji and Bebe's sewing bromance for the ages (not really romantic but still), I do like the ever-popular Yu/Yosuke but out of dateable characters I like Yu/Marie (because Mythology!) Teddie/Labrys is an unconventional one I think is cute. Also I like Kanji/Rise but I try not to spread that around as angry Kanji/Naoto shippers would kick my ass! Naoto/Aigis might be the oddest one. I support lots of others but these are ones not many people ship!

Also Chie and Akihiko become buddy cops who eat steaks on steak-outs.

What ones do you support? :)

Late reply is late owe; I sowrry *rolls*

I totally dig Akihiko/Chie too! Heck, throw Kanji in there too, Akihiko's great with everybodeh. He's like butter~

Yu/Yosuke is alright if it's written in character (which, unfortunately in my experiences, its not very often), but I like Yu better with Kanji because dem feels, man ;w; He's the only one who understands him, yanno?

I never got the appeal of KanNao either, so we can get pelted to death by fangirls together~ I like Chie/Yukiko the most, because les face it, they're total lesbians for each other, but I'll write Yosuke/Naoto (or Naoto/Yosuke? I'm still not sure who tops...) every now and again. I also like Teddie/Rise, but that's even harder to come by. The sucky part about liking unconventional pairs is that I can't fangirl with anyone D; *le sob*

After the 'take off your clothes' scene I have a soft spot for Akihiko/Kanji just because it would be comedy gold - they'd take awkward blushing, mumbling and looking at the ground to a new ridiculous level. :'D

I just think Yosuke's clearly compensating for something by constantly, awkwardly asserting his heterosexuality every 5 minutes. It makes me suspicious. 
With Kanji on the 'only one that understands him' point - I decided to make him and Bebe friends, since Bebe is also a somewhat misunderstood (in a completely different way to Kanji though, he has wacky foreign customs and talks funny) boy who loves to sew and knit pink bunny plushes. I suppose you could ship them but that'd be a super-rare pairing! :XD:

Chie/Yukiko is something everyone can see! :D Though my friend introduced me to Mitsuru/Yukiko and it's quite great itself!

Naoto's a difficult person to pair up since she is a bit of an intellectual snob, I think she'd probably want to date someone at least as smart as her. I mean in the game you need maxed Courage and Knowledge to start her S-link, right?

Well, despite only having seen the first 20 episodes of Bleach, I totally ship Orihime and Tatsuki! I rarely ever do yuri-shippings, but those two: TOTALLY made for each other! :love:

Well, me too! I'm not a homophobe or anything (not in the slightest), this is just the only homosexual couple I ship, because it's the only one I've found that does make sense! :)

I once shipped a man with a talking sandwich, thinks make sense to me that don't make a lot of sense to other people :XD:

My immediate question would then be: Is the talking sandwich in question from "Sheep in the Big City"? :XD:

ts, I slash Jonah Hex and Dr. Arkham

it makes absolutely no sense, but makes perfect sense

Yeah, All-Star Western is an awesome comic series
helps that it's currently the only western series published by the two

and really
despite the fact that Hex is a chronic womanizer and notorious manly man, and that Arkham is a sexually repressed prude, after the so far 15 issues they worked together, they are essentially acting like an old married couple
especially the expression Jonah has time to time when reacting to Arkham's nagging essentially reads "yes dear... yeas dear.."

"It helped early humans not eat their babies."

...and what a terrible thing that is. Babies are delicious AND nutritious!

But if early humans ate all their babies, there'd be no later humans - that's why they needed the cute factor, to distract from their deliciousness

But that's the thing....there are no later humans, only a computer simulation run by aliens. that's right: MODERN EARTH WAS AN MMO ALL ALONG!

The love of all things cute? Humans are built to like cute things, in fact the whole perception of 'cute' is an evolutionary thing, animals with the 'cute' traits - ie: common traits of human infants trigger a response in our brains, making us like them and want to take care of them. It helped early humans not eat their babies. :D

I understand, and is is fascinating that it works cross-species as well
not only including mammals, but also birds and some reptiles

this kinda reminds me of the french comic series Trolls of Troy (it's kinda like the Smurfs, if the smurfs were huge and were killing people for food and sport, and Gargamel just wanted to protect his people, and yes)
one of the main character is Vaha, the trolls' pet human
when she was a baby, the trolls killed and ate her entire family, but when her turn came, they thought she was too adorable, and so they kept her

I really recommend the series
it's hilarious
gory as hell, but hilarious [link]
