Female Character and Pairing Appreciation

THE FEMALE CHARACTER & PAIRING APPRECIATION MEME




So I got tired of waiting around for women to only be appreciated ONE DAY out of the year.

If you've ever played a female character from a canon dominated by male characters, or even just been a fan of such a character, you've probably noticed something. Your character will never be as popular as the dudes and the bros. You'll have a harder time finding icons, fanart, character studies- in fact, you may even find bashing of your character in disproportionate amounts compared to male canonmates. If you're in games, you may notice people flocking toward your more popular male castmates. You could get left behind when it comes to shipping or smut - or, worst of all, you could be shut out from all CR. That really sucks.

Even on memes, the message is pretty clear. Female characters rarely get the tags their male counterparts do. M/M shipping and smut dominates, and female characters can get called sexist names for daring to show interest in those things.

BUT NO LONGER. This meme is for female characters to get their time in the spotlight. All the lovely ladies are the focus today; you're the ones going to get chased after this time. So whether your poison is angst, fluff, smut, or anything in between, come one, come all. It's ladies' night.

HOW TO PLAY
- Make a comment with your character, canon, preferences, etc.
- Male characters can obviously make top comments to have ladies come to them, but they must be open to m/f. NO M/M ALLOWED.
- Comment to others, making up your own scenario or using the RNG to choose from the ones offered here. Roll once for category, then again

Heroine - She kicks ass, saves the day, and gets the girl/guy in the end!

[house hunting ok? can be a couple thing or friend thing!]
doingwhatiwant: (Mikoto)

oooh! A Kushina!

[personal profile] doingwhatiwant 2014-02-02 03:34 pm (UTC)(link)
[That sounds fun! FYI, tags may be sparse for the next few days, as I'll be traveling on business and don't know what kind of internet connection I'll have when I get there. Just know that you're not forgotten.]

Mikoto knew they were going to need a new house. Fugaku's current dwelling was far too cramped to raise a family, and he readily admitted it. But as time went by, he found it hard to tear himself away from his duties as chief of Konoha police. And when he could, there were always clan matters to attend to. House hunting wasn't a priority.

Now, that family was coming, whether they were prepared for it or not. Five months pregnant with her first child, house hunting was very much a priority.

And if Fugaku was too busy, she would just have to rely on the impeccable judgement (or at least the passionate opinions) of her best friend.

that's what i said about mikoto!

[no problem at all! 8)]

At first, Kushina had wrinkled her nose at the thought of finding a house for Mikoto and Fugaku to live in. It was no secret Kushina wasn't a fan of Mikoto's husband and his perpetual grumpy face. She was actually pretty jealous that he was the person that was going to be living with her best friend. But with Mikoto's belly round with child, she quickly disregarded those thoughts and instead thought of the unborn child who would need lots of space as he, or she, was growing up.

And the space Mikoto needed to keep up.

"This one has a nice price but it's not very big," Kushina thought aloud as they stood in front of a small family home, close to Uchiha headquarters. Her arms were folded across her chest as she surveyed the building, head tiling. "But it has a nice yard in the front where you can garden or do whatever. It's a lot better than that tiny house we first saw. The guy that showed us around was rude, anyway. You don't want to buy anything from him."

A new muse of mine I wanted to let loose

[personal profile] doingwhatiwant 2014-02-02 04:26 pm (UTC)(link)
"We're going to need at least three bedrooms, Kushina, but more would be better. You know how Uchiha are about families."

Rare was an Uchiha family with any less than two children. Once the first child was born to a family, it was as though it was a race against time to conceive a second. (For reasons non-Uchiha didn't need to know.)

"I do like the big yard. But just between you and me... I don't care if Fugaku likes being close to work, the police force offices and the jail are in the same compound. It makes me nervous bringing up a baby so close to all that." She put a hand on her belly. "Little shinobi or not, I'd rather find an area that's a little more peaceful."

fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (serious→ faito)

mine's pretty old ehe

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-02-02 04:47 pm (UTC)(link)
All she really liked about this one was the yard, it was difficult finding a place around Konoha with one. Since most homes were very close together, there wasn't much room unless you lived in a compound. The houses that did have yards were just slim pieces of grass to put up a clothesline in the back.

Her expression gets stormy when she thinks of Fugaku getting his hands on Mikoto again for another child. But she did look happy and she feels a pang of envy watching her put a hand to her round belly and look so beautiful. The aura of motherhood suited Mikoto. She really was happy for her friend. How could she not be? Mikoto was glowing and so ready.

For Kushina, having a kid was downright near impossible and Mikoto was one of only ones she confided in. So she can't take out her displeasure at how unlucky she is and the decision to make her a jinchuriki. All she had said that it wasn't possible because she had a condition. That was that.

"Good. You shouldn't care about what he thinks. He's not the one having a baby, ya know? He probably won't take care of the house like you either." So they continue on to the next prospect, a bit closer to the Academy and no where near Fugaku's work. "Why don't you live in the compound? Not that I blame you. A lot of the Uchiha besides you are pretty, er, unfriendly." To her, anyway.
doingwhatiwant: (Mikoto)

[personal profile] doingwhatiwant 2014-02-02 05:46 pm (UTC)(link)
Mikoto knew the day's efforts would most likely be overruled by Fugaku's position within the clan. Whatever they found would be dismissed if it wasn't within the compound. But for a few hours?

"A girl can dream, right?" She nudged her best friend. "I've always loved the homes by the lake. They're all so open, and they have such a romantic view. The compound is better known for its walls. And no, before you say it, they weren't put up to hide my husband's sour face."

There was a laugh as she quickly imitated a couple of his stranger expressions. All joking aside, of course, her family did come first. That included Fugaku as well as the new baby.

"I just want... to see some other options, that's all."
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (calm→ special chakra)

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-02-02 05:58 pm (UTC)(link)
She wouldn't be surprised if they were built for that purpose though. Kushina laughs with Mikoto and the expressions she makes, nearly mimicking every scowl and glare he's made. Mikoto had been with him long enough to get it exactly right. If she transformed into him, she wouldn't know the difference.

The atmosphere turns somber as Kushina realizes that while they're house hunting, in the end Mikoto didn't think she had a choice. Suddenly, the red head stops walking.

"You should live where you want to," Kushina says with real feeling. "If you want to live by the lake, you should find a way to do it. And if I lived in one of those places as a kid, I'd love it. There would be tons of room to play and train, plus it's really peaceful like you want." It's probably very expensive though -- the houses over there were really beautiful with cherry blossoms and garden paths. Every woman dreamed about living in a house like that.

"Fugu-face can stuff it."
doingwhatiwant: (Mikoto)

[personal profile] doingwhatiwant 2014-02-02 07:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Mikoto shook her head, though she never did get tired of her friend's affectionate little nickname for her husband. Especially when she used it to his face.

Money wasn't an obstacle. Her husband was the head of one of Konoha's most prominent clans, and the chief of the police force. But she knew Fugaku well. He would argue that moving so far away from clan strongholds, (and yes, he would call it that too - always military-minded...) would crate the perception that he was turning his back on Uchiha. Mikoto shook her head again.

"Kushina, it would be so nice to watch my babies play in the sakura blossoms..." She mused, wondering what Fngaku would think if she brought up the idea of a 'summer home.' "Can't you just picture it? Mother-daughter picnics, great fireballs off the dock..."
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (happy→ fishcake is a beautiful name)

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-02-02 07:22 pm (UTC)(link)
And she certainly did, just to watch how red his face got.

If money in't an issue, all the more reason. When Kushina was choosing houses though, she had a tendency to be very frugal since she never had money growing up. She's an orphan. But it also made her very savvy when it came to saving money but having quality things.

She could picture it, even the fireballs since that's what the clan was known for. And knowing Mikoto as long as she did, she had seen those grand fireballs coming from her. She had thought it was so cool and made sure Mikoto knew as much. Kushina didn't have many friends growing up, but her friendship with Mikoto had grown from there.

"So you know the baby is a girl?" They start walking again but her eyes drift down to her pregnant belly.

"Not completely sure..." She admitted. "The mednin can't say for sure yet. But father swears it's going to be and that his sharingan haven't failed him yet."

She was clearly excited about the prospect, even though they both knew Fugaku was interested in a son.

"Either way, they're going to be beautiful."

It fit, then, that they were walking along some of the most beautiful streets in Konoha. The flowers were blooming, there were koi swimming in the little creek. All of the hokage were looking over them from the mountainside.

"Just think, if i got a house out here, we could be neighbors. Your boyfriend is the Hokage. You could live anywhere in the village you want."
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (blush→ crushed them)

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-02-04 05:29 pm (UTC)(link)
"Yeah. I just hope the baby looks like you," and she's completely serious about that. But despite it all, Kushina is excited for Mikoto. She had experience with little Kakashi, so having another baby to coddle and coo at was making her looking forward to the due date.

Her cheeks color and she rubs her neck bashfully. Talking about her boyfriend, the Hokage, made her proud and shrink a little all at once. She had already stuck out in the village with her bright red hair, with her history as the Red-Blooded Habanero, with her volume that matured into a passion for everything she did. Now with her as the Hokage's girlfriend, she was even more widely known.

It was still better than just being 'the outsider.'

"Minato probably would let me live where I wanted," she admits, knowing he didn't have much of a preference for it because he could be anywhere he wanted in less than a second. "If he didn't, he'd find his himself girlfriend-less so fast it would put his Hiraishin to shame."
doingwhatiwant: (Mikoto)

[personal profile] doingwhatiwant 2014-02-05 12:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Mikoto giggled. "You mean, you don't want them to have those face lines like great great grandfather Tajima? Fugaku was teased about his, and they aren't even that pronounced."

As they went over the bridge, they could see a row of breathtakingly pretty houses. It was probably the openness that made the wood seem newer, the colors brighter and the exteriors larger.

"It's a long-shot, but do you think we can find two for sale? Right next to each other?"

Because a non-Uchiha moving into their district? Probably not going to go over too well, even if were the Hokage's girlfriend.

fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (smirk→ kicks butt)

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-02-05 07:51 pm (UTC)(link)
"Well, that..."

Not just that. Mikoto was just a better looking, better mannered person. Kushina wasn't just friends with anyone. After being bullied for so long, she had some trust issues with people. Mikoto was one of the few, growing up, who didn't partake so it was easier to get along. That coupled with Mikoto's already sweet and friendly nature drew Kushina to her.

"We can find one and then I'll build mine next to yours," she says, looking ahead with determination. Like she reallyy would build a house out of her bare hands, whether Fugaku or the Uchiha liked it or not, right next to Mikoto's house. It's too bad they can't have their kids grow up together too. It would be perfect.

As if the picture of serenity and beauty that was cherry blossom petals scattered across the ground wasn't enough.
doingwhatiwant: (Mikoto)

[personal profile] doingwhatiwant 2014-02-06 01:49 am (UTC)(link)
Mikoto had no doubt that Kushina meant what she said. Her friend was the most feisty, most passionate, most determined woman in the village. It was what Mikoto, who was mild-mannered and reserved even as a jonin, admired most about her. (Hell, even if she said she couldn't have children, if she wanted one badly enough, Kushina could probably even make that happen too.)

"Oh, look!" she pointed. "The one with the deck built up over the lake is vacant."

She took Kushina by the hand.

"Let's take a look around."
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (excited→ now's your chance!)

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-02-06 06:25 am (UTC)(link)
She did, but not until much later.

Mikoto's cry startles Kushina but she's quick to follow the finger to the house. She's in the middle of surveying from a distance when she finds her hand in Mikoto's and being led down the path towards it. As per Kushina fashion, she picks up the pace so she's the one guiding Mikoto to the front entrance, getting a bit excited that they've found a house.

Maybe she could talk Mikoto into just living here. That's what she wanted. And there was enough room to build a neighboring house big enough for her and Minato.

Kushina doesn't knock, she peeks her head in and shouts loud enough so anyone within a mile vicinity can hear. "Hello!! Anyone home? We've got a potential buyer here, ya know!"

When no one answered, it was pretty clear that the house was indeed vacant. Perhaps the seller had just stepped out and would return shortly. The door was unlocked, though, so clearly, they were welcome to enter.

The porch was long and stretched all the way around the house. There were so many windows, making each room very bright. When they went inside, the feeling of openness continued. The kitchen was twice the size of the one she had now and so was the living space, easily.

She peeked her head in an adjacent room.

"This room would make a lovely indoor training space. The house bath is right next to it." she smiled. "I wonder how many bedrooms are nestled upstairs."

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-02-07 12:53 am (UTC)(link)
Even if it wasn't, they're ninja, despite Mikoto being pregnant. They would find a way into the house. Kushina is in a bit of awe -- while the outside of the house was gorgeous in its splendor, the openness of its inside isn't what she expected. Beyond the porch, lay the garden at the center. She could hear the faint click of the bamboo hitting stone and the relaxing trickle of water.

If Mikoto thinks she's talking to a Kushina next to her, she's wrong. The red head has decided to leave her friend's side for a just a moment to do some investigating of that bath right next to them. There would be more than enough bedrooms here for a large family in a house like this, if that's what Mikoto wanted.

"Whoa! Look at this bathtub!"
doingwhatiwant: (Mikoto)

[personal profile] doingwhatiwant 2014-02-07 01:23 am (UTC)(link)
It was a good thing Kushina's voice carried, or Mikoto would have gone right up the stairs to investigate the other rooms.

Instead, she peeked around the other corner, only to find a luxurious tub (it looked like a miniature onsen really) built into the ground. The wood around it was beautifully polished, with rails along the steps for easy access. It was large enough for at least two people to soak comfortably, making romantic evenings at home an actual possibility once the baby is born.

"An indoor meditation garden, training space and such a gorgeous private bath..." she was absolutely awestruck.
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (happy→ figure it out?)

oops sorry got a bit busy!

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-02-09 07:33 pm (UTC)(link)
"It's the house of anyone's dreams," she says as she moves to stand in the tub. It comes up to her waist and she leans over the side of it, folding her arms on the wood paneling. It's obvious Mikoto is falling in love, if not already in love, with the house. Heck, even Kushina who isn't house hunting would love to live in a place like this.

It reminds her of Mito's old home and how she would visit and run through the halls like a red tornado, skidding along the polished wood and making Mito laugh softly at all the energy her young successor had and how she would yammer on about Minato or her new friend, Mikoto.

"So you're going to get this one, right?"
doingwhatiwant: (Mikoto)

It's okay! It happens to the best of us!

[personal profile] doingwhatiwant 2014-02-09 08:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Mikoto certainly had a dreamy look on her face just thinking about this house. It was a perfect place, an absolutely perfect place, to nurture her family as it grew. The baby seemed to agree, it's kick an exclamation point to the thoughts in her head.

Unfortunately, Mikoto had to ground herself back in reality.

"Kushina, it's not up to me. And you know Fugaku is going to be a lot harder to convince."

He did like a good long soak after a hard day on the job, though. So the house bath was certainly going to be a big plus.
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (excited→ we can do it!)

this is a super cute thread btw i keep gushing about it to people

[personal profile] fervidity 2014-02-09 08:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Why wasn't it up to her? The encouraging smile drops into a frown and she drops her chin onto her arms. Always in the way, that Fugaku. Kushina furrows her brow at the ground. It should be up to Mikoto -- she was an Uchiha too and she was just as much a part of the relationship as he was.

"I'll convince him," she suddenly declares. To date, she hasn't lost an argument. Fugaku might be a pain, but if it was to make Mikoto happy she would do it. She deserved that, even if Kushina can hear her saying something like she would be happy just having her family together.

Truth be told, Kushina would probably be happy anywhere with Minato too. But that's what friends are for, to help find happiness in other ways.

"I'll drag him here to show him how perfect this house is for you and the baby if I have to."

[I was thinking of creating my own Naruto Dressing Room comm, since there isn't really an active one going on right now. If I get one started, would you like to join in?]

Those words probably would be spoken were it not for Mikoto suddenly visualizing her best friend's very forward, loud and sometimes forceful method of convincing.

"The Hokage probably doesn't want to bail his girlfriend out of jail..." she laughed nervously.

She knew her friend wouldn't do anything purposefully violent. But she also knew Fugaku was as stubborn as Kushina was wild. Try to drag him anywhere against his will and trouble would follow.

[yes!! definitely if i can have more threads with mikoto! <3]

Kushina turns red. It wouldn't go very well for Minato if he did have to bail her out of the Uchiha jail. With the racket she would make too about being in here when she didn't even do anything wrong was bound to catch someone's attention. She doesn't want to be a burden to him but Mikoto was important too.

She buries her face in her arms and it's hard to understand what she's mumbling about. The only thing that's clear in her muffled complaining about 'husbands that have something against best friends' is, "I could break out."

Finally she lifts her head and looks uncertain. "He wouldn't put me in jail, would he?" There was mutual dislike so it was possible.

They are pretty awesome together!

[I didn't create a voice-testing account to NOT play with random muses! hehe. I'll let you know when I finally get everything ready.]

Mikoto sighed instead of answering that. Fugaku didn't always approve of Mikoto's choice of friends, but they were her friends. He probably wouldn't lay a hand on her unless she did something to deserve it. The only question was, would she?

"More likely you than me." she insisted, taking out her checkbook with a strange sense of Kushina-induced confidence. "When the owner comes back, I'm putting a down payment on this house!"

yessssss

[awesome!]

The sigh says enough. Well, whatever Fugaku did it wasn't like she was going to follow him without a fight. She wasn't even doing anything wrong. The only wrong thing she would be doing is that she didn't do something like it sooner.

Of course he was more likely to put Kushina in jail. He didn't even LIKE her and Mikoto was his wife. And pregnant. If possible, Kushina would dislike him even more if he decided to put her in jail and she would demand something be done about it. Maybe give Fugaku a personality change.

She watches with some confusion until she realizes what exactly Mikoto pulled out. A grin spreads across her face and she punches the air.

"That's the way, ya know! Take charge, Mikoto!"
