Um. And before I launch into the most utterly pointless and random tirade about Silver Pair ever, I'd like to make a point, the thesis of which being CHOUTAROU IS SO FUCKING UKE
Uh. That all being said, please allow me to direct your attention to this ship manifesto for Silver Pair. Unfortunately, the essay itself isn't very thoroughly written and tends to take people's understanding of the pairing for granted, but it does contain a marvelous display of gay canon images. Please scroll to the "bromide/card evidence" section, so you may enjoy as I proceed to make peanut gallery comments about many of them (going left to right, then top to bottom, as in the English language)
① One of the many eating pictures. XD; Obviously Choutarou is a cheap date, since they always seem to be eating fast food... But, anyway. XD;; I love the Ponta shirt, that's classy. XD; I also enjoy how Choutarou is obviously trying to cosplay Mokuba. XD;; But like, seriously, the whole hand on the shoulder thing? I bet they're reading a Silver Pair doujin and Shishido's like "hey, that's totally what we did last night :OO" Also, note that Choutarou is wearing, instead of his regular cross necklace, a silver star around his neck. Can we scream uke plox?
② Wtf at Shishdo's hat. That's all. XD;
③... is that a crab that Shishido's holding? Also Choutarou is good at blowing things ^_~
④ I really love this picture. XD;; HAT = TRUE LOVE. Note how it's the icon I'm using for this post. XD; That picture like. Can't possibly NOT be canon gay. XD;;
⑤ One of the >9000 Christmas TeniPuri pics... I'm loving the girly earmuffs on Shishido. Also, you may think he's giving that gift to the audience, but check out where his eyes are. Even if he's not paying attention, that's totally for Choutarou.
⑥ There's no question here... the box says "Shishido-san e" ("To Shishido-san"). Also, I'm loving the pink ribbon there, Choutarou. XD; Note how they're like. Lovingly looking into one another's eyes. Aww. y so cute and ghey gaiz?
⑦ NOTE HOW THE CARD IS THE ACE OF HEARTS. Also aww he's putting his arm around him, cute.
⑧ They couldn't have kids so they adopted koalas, apparently.
⑨ Um. I can't read it. So YEAH I HAVE NO COMMENT.
⑩ This is the one where Choutarou isn't actually eating a hamburger, he's licking a sex toy, according to some conversation I had with yomimashou... XD;;; Again with the cuddling though, srsly gaiz.
⑪ AWW. That's just... AWW. How can that not be totally gay?
⑫ Choutarou: I WANNA SEME. I'MMA RAPE YOU WITH THIS BOTTLE!
Shishido: Um.... wtf no?
Butteryfly: lol u gaiz r gei
Srsly the bottle is a metaphor.
⑬ Is it just me, or do they look older in this one? It looks like they're posing for like, a honeymoon picture or something. Like. idk it looks gay. XD;;
⑭ Um. I think "characters in a tree with characters below" is like an obligatory canon art for every series. That being said, NOTE WHO IS IN THE PICTURE. CANON GAY PEOPLE, THAT'S WHO. I think Gakuto and Oshitari were totally having sex in the tree (because they do it EVERYWHERE) but that's beside the point. XD; Note how the couples have subtly matching outfits in this one. Eiji and Oishi seem to legit have the same vest in different colours XD; Shishido and Choutarou are both wearing blazer-ish jackets, and Gakuto and Oshitari are both wearing button up shirts with yellow and white shirts under them. YAY SUBTLETIES. Also it's apparently a gay sakura-viewing picnic. XD;;
⑮ UM. THEIR ASSES ARE TOUCHING. Besides that, look at Shishido's expression. It's like "sex nao. on this roof." XD;; ALSO PINK HOODIE FTW?!
⑯ UM. FREUD WOULD HAVE A FIELD DAY WITH THIS ONE. CAN WE SAY METAPHOR?!
⑰ Atobe is BEYOND FABULOUS, but that's beyond the point. XD; I like how Choutarou is like *spreads legs* and Shishido is like sneakily standing between them. XD;;; Also GAKUTO Y SO CUTE AND OSHITARI Y SO GAY?
⑱ Shishido: sex tiems nao.
Choutarou: ...not in front of the camera! :(
⑲ OKAY UNRELATED I KNOW, BUT LOOK AT HOW OSHITARI IS ABOUT TO RUN HIS HAND ALONG GAKUTO'S BARE THIGH. I TOLD YOU THEY HAVE SEX 24/7!! Shishido does not look so thrilled that Taki is hitting on him. XD; Also, SAKAKI, Y SO RAPIST?
⑳ Ukes is pimps too, come on, brush yo shouldas off *raps*
㉑ OKAY SERIOUSLY. THE GAY IS LIKE, OVERWHELMING. I think they're like. Toasting their engagement or something. XD;;;;; Maybe Atobe is throwing them a fabulous engagement ball. IN HIS FABULOUS PURPLE SUIT.
㉒ [I'm skipping over the manga images, so this one is the one with the coffees] I love Shishido's gay scarf and Choutarou's Minekura-style gay furry coat!
㉓ LOL SWORDS.
Okay, I'm done, I swear. XD;;;;;;
[EDIT] Okay, so I looked really close at the one with the dialogue and I came up with this:
"Shishido-san sandoichi mou 1 [kanji I can't read] dou desu ka? Shishido-san no suki na tsuna desu yo!"
"Aa Choutarou sankyuu"
Which roughly translates to:
"Shishido-san, which sandwich [something involving the kanji I can't read]? Shishido-san's favourite tuna, you know!
"Ah, thank you Choutarou."
...I'm translating "yo" as "you know" but, like... I don't really know what exactly would be an appropriate translation... and that whole thing is based on my crappy half year of Japanese YEAH. I don't really know what's up with the "mou 1" in there without being able to see the kanji... so... yeah. Your guess is as good as mine. XD;; Also, assumeing katakana "tsuna" is "tuna" XD;;; ALSO this is obviously supposed to be dialogue and conversational, considering the "sankyuu," so... does Choutarou really not use "da" instead of "desu"...?
STILL. ALWAYS WITH THE SANDWICHES, GUYS. XD;;;
[EDIT 2] Okay, V informs me that the kanji I couldn't read is the counter for sandwiches. XD;;; Whatever that may be. So the complete translation would be like:
"Shishido-san, do you want another sandwich? It's Shishido-san's favourite, tuna, you know!"
"Ah, thank you, Choutarou"
So, yeah. Um. Choutarou is his waifu or something. XD;;;
