Hello, and welcome to Pairing Tolerance! I created this forum after seeing constant flaming and intolerance of even fairly ordinary pairings, while the more unusual ones often were clobbered from all sides. So, this forum is tolerant of *all* pairings, regardless of what they are. Yaoi, yuri, het, even incest is allowed, so it's not just based on my personal preferences. (I strongly dislike incest fics.)
There are only two rules for this forum:
1. No Flaming. At all. Ever. Your post *will* be deleted.
2. Introduce yourself below, so that I know you've read this.5/3/2006 #1 Report
Hohkay, introduction time. Lemme see here. Well...My name is Insaneiac the Maniac, and I'm an acoholic...wait that's not right.
My name is Insaneiac the Maniac and this is my story...DAMMIT! Wrong again. -Flips through introduction cards rapidly- Here we go!
Sup, my name is Insaneiac the Maniac, and I understand the following criteria, ecetera ecetera, so on so forth. Yay! First introduction! Moving on up, I'm moving on up. :D As a personal taste, I prefer het couplings, but I am partial to a few yaoi pairings. However, I don't think there is a ToS Yuri possibility that tickles my fancy in the slightest.5/3/2006 #2 Report
Hello, and welcome! ^_^ I like het and yaoi as well; I don't generally fancy yuri, but I won't shun it if a story I'm reading involves it.5/3/2006 #3 Report
I'm Anima Sage Kurai aka ASK or Kurai. I like slash/yaoi/shounen-ai pairings along with femslah/yuri/shojo-ai. My fav. slash pairing is Kratos/Zelos while my fav. femslash is Sheena/Raine.5/3/2006 #4 Report
I promise to get the next chapter of Journey of Discovery posted soon.5/3/2006 . Edited 5/3/2006 #5 Report
'Lo all, I'm noctepanther, or just plain ol' nocte. I don't have anything against slash, I just don't like to read it. Doesn't interest me one bit. I am, however, a HUGE Raine/Regal supporter, which as you all know is despised by many out there.
*places hand over heart*
I understand the aforementioned rules and promise to follow them to the best of my abilities, so help me Galdera.5/4/2006 #7 Report
'Ello, DEB here (odd username, I know) and I fancy het pairings. I highly dislike yaoi/yuri but I won't bother you all in those areas. (although incest fics should burn in hell, seriously. KratosxLloyd? What the hell?)
I will adhere to the rules. (I usually do, anyway)5/4/2006 #8 Report
I also strongly dislike Kratos/Lloyd, no matter how well it's written. Lloyd isn't THAT confused!
But yeah. I am the DRAGONWINGS! A terrible, terrible username I made when I was.. uh.. eleven or so. I would re name it but that would confuse people. So dragonwings it stays.
Technically, I don't like Yaoi or Yuri. Because technically, Yaoi and Yuri are gay lemons. SHOUNEN-AI and SHOUJO-AI are light, romantic pieces focusing on relationships and love. So I like shonen/Shoujo-ai.
Favorite Shonen: Zelloyd, Githos, Kruan, Guan (Genis/Yuan)
Favorite Shoujo: Reena, Scolette, Prelette, um.. nothing else comes readily to mind.
Favorite het: Shelos, Shelloyd, Sheenawa, Collis, Yuette, Zaine, Kraine, Ruan. Kloitz/Virginia, Kranna, and Yuartel.
Though those are my favorites, I'll read just about anything and love it to bits if it's written well.5/5/2006 #9 Report
Hello! Everyone basically calls me Minnie. So far, I have no other nicknames. ^^
I have nothing against shounen-ai and shoujo-ai but I do not read them because they don't interest me. I only read shounen-ai and shoujo-ai if it is written by a writer I know writes well and always stay IC because I dislike het or any other pairings OOC.
Favorite Het pairings: Sheelos, Colloyd, Kraine, Kranna, Yuartel, Gesea, Geles, and Yggdrassil/Pronyma. I read almost any other het pairings except for Sheeloyd.
Favorite Shounen pairings (still don't read though): Zelloyd, Kruan, Githos, Genis/Lloyd
Favorite Shoujo pairings: Raine/Sheena, Colette/Presea
Pairings I will never ever support: Kratos/Lloyd, Kratos/Zelos, Raine/Genis, and Yggdrassil/Martel
Oh and thank you for a place for us to talk about pairings without a flame war breaking out. THANK YOU!5/6/2006 #10 Report
I'm pretty open-minded when it comes to ToS. The only stuff I grudge against is either poorly-written crap that deserves to be mocked anyway, or anything centering around the four pairings I outright dislike (Kratos/Lloyd, Regal/Raine, Genis/Presea, and Zelos/Sheena - though the latter one I've been more lenient with as of late). So yeah, Het pairings, Yaoi/Yuri, Incest, polygamy, love triangles/squares/decagons or whatever... if an author can truly pull it off, I'm cool with it.
Enjoyed Het: Lloyd/Sheena, Lloyd/Colette, Lloyd/Raine, Lloyd/Presea, Regal/Presea, Genis/Seles, Kratos/Raine, Kratos/Anna, Yuan/Martel, Zelos/Colette, Regal/Alicia
Enjoyed m/m: Mithos/Genis, Yggdrasill/Genis, Lloyd/Genis, Zelos/Genis, Zelos/Lloyd, Kratos/Zelos, Kratos/Yuan, Regal/Wonder Chef
Enjoyed f/f: Sheena/Colette, Colette/Presea, Raine/Sheena, Raine/Pronyma
Anything I don't mention, I'm most likely neutral to. Meh.5/7/2006 #11 Report
*ducks shoe thrown by ASK, which has been hovering in the air all weekend while Sylvia's been gone* Meep! Soon, I promise!
Greetings to everyone, sorry I've been gone. I tend to go incommunicado on weekends, 'cause I'm at my boyfriend's and have better things to do. :3 I'll try to do that less nowadays... Um, replies, right...
noctepanther: I like Regal/Raine, too. Welcome!
DEB: Yeah, I don't get Kratos/Lloyd either, but some people do like it, and can actually write it distressingly well. Anyway, welcome!
Dragonwings: I'm in the same boat you are, as far as nicknames go. I've been Sylvia Viridian everywhere for as long as I can remember. Makes it easy to keep track of my usernames, though! And yes, I know about the whole Yaoi/shounen-ai Yuri/shoujo-ai thing...it's just easier to only use one term for each.
Minnie: Hi, and you're very welcome.
Shinneth: Hello, nice to see you here. You've got some unusual pairings there...should be interesting.5/7/2006 #12 Report
Hiya, I'm ImperialGuardian09, called Kate, Acorn, or ImperialGuardian, whatever you feel like! Actually, I'm with Shinneth somewhat. I don't agree with incest but I'll read pairings as long as they make the story interesting. I'm a big Sheelos and YuanxRaine fan, but I'll also read others if they pull me in.
Okay, I've read your rules, and for the most part I'll do my best to play nice with all the other posters (innocent face).... just kidding... don't worry, I'll respect the rules! Later!7/10/2006 #13 Report
Hey-lo, and welcome! I'm really not too worried about people obeying the rules here, mostly only open-minded people will be attracted to a forum where all pairings are allowed and you aren't allowed to flame. The rules are just a precaution.7/10/2006 #14 Report
Introduce myself? That's fun! Haha, anyways! I'm obviously Fenris Amon, a little writer that seems to of found this forum and decided that this was the best forum to post a challange...that was...slightly....weird?8/1/2006 #15 Report
Hi, and welcome! This is exactly the sort of place where you're welcome to post whatever bizarre challenges you like, although I can't guarantee anyone will take them.8/1/2006 #16 Report
Hi. I'm Angelheart17 and i'm new. I don't like yoai or yuri. My fav pairings are: Colloyd, Shelos, Gensea, Kranna, YuanxMartel, RegalxAlicia, and for some odd reason, MithosxSeles.9/11/2006 #17 Report

My name is Spiritua, and I have problems.
Too much hanging around Morgan/Insaneiac _
Trying this again.
My name is Spiritua, and I am a ficaholic.
DO'H! ... ... Wait. That actually works. So, from the top:
My name is Spiritua, and I am a ficaholic. I've read your rule thingamajoobers and am willing to be tolerant of others, even if they or their pairings bug me to pieces. Which is saying something, because most people who bug me to pieces have their face beaten in. =P
I am Insaneiac's faithful beta, and I am a 'close personal friend' (coughyeahrightcough) of dragonwings144, though I'm too lazy to check if she's posted here yet. Probably, she posts pretty much everywhere. =P10/29/2006 #19 Report
Ah, welcome! Yes, D-wings and Insaneiac are both around here, glad to have you here, too! I hope you enjoy your stay!10/31/2006 #20 Report
oops. i forgot to introduce myself.

favored het pairings: Kratos/Anna, Yuan/Martel, Sheena/Zelos, Colette/Lloyd, Genis/Presea, Sheena/Kuchinawa, Yuan/Sheena, Mithos/Raine, and Raine/Ruins (the best Raine pairing there is...XD)
favored yaoi pairings: Kratos/Yuan, Zelos/Lloyd
favored yuri pairings: Colette/Sheena12/7/2006 #21 Report
[Scottish accent]The name's kid, koinekid. I take my fics shaken, not stirred.[/Scottish accent]
I read nothing but straight fics. To paraphrase my favorite ToS character, slash pairings "wouldn't be my style." I do indulge in a bit of character and pairing bashing from time to time seeing as it's so much fun to irritate people, but I will refrain from doing so here.
Pairings I support: Sheloyd, Gesea, Zelette
Pairings I actively dislike: Shelos, Colloyd (as long as no one insists these are canon, I'll be fine), OC x any main character (as a story's main pairing unless the romance exists to provide an obstacle toward main characters coming together)
Pairings I have written: Sheloyd, Zelos x Hilda, Gelette (the best a half-elf can get?), Gesea, Sheena x Orochi (sorta), Regal x Alicia, one-sided Colloyd, one-sided Shelos, and a few NPC romances. Some readers have seen stirrings of Shetos in my latest story.
Pairings I am ambivalent about: Gelette, Kraine, Raigal, Raine x Lloyd, Preloyd, Shenawa, Shetos, Raine x Zelos, and every other straight pairing.
Pairings that intrigue me: Mithos x Colette--has anyone written this?1/19/2007 . Edited 1/19/2007 #24 Report
Hey, there, and welcome! Hm, interesting list you've got there...Shetos is something I've harbored a vague interest in for a while now, I may just have to check out that fic!1/20/2007 #25 Report
what's your opinions about crack pairings? Sheena/Regal is one of my faves.1/23/2007 #26 Report
I and many others here enjoy crack pairings, but this isn't the place for discussing it, please. ^^; There are specific threads dedicated to pairing discussion, this is just for rules and introductions.1/23/2007 #27 Report
okay. i was just mentioning it because he didn't mention it in his profile. i just wanted to make sure he didn't forget about it. ^_^1/29/2007 #28 Report
My name is Lily and I'm really fond of crack pairings :) I'm into Raine-crack pairings at the moment...maybe because she's the oldest female character in the party? (Not too sure if Presea is older though...) Cannon doesn't really go with me too well but I usually stay away from that anyway, so it all works out ^_^
Thank you for creating this forum!10/14/2007 #29 Report
Hello, and welcome! Yeah, Presea is older than Raine, being 28, but she's nowhere near as pairable. Anyway, glad to see someone new here, although there hasn't been much activity lately.10/14/2007 #30 Report
