Why Simon/Rossiu is Completely Canon 
22nd-Dec-2007 01:27 am
GL - Simon & Rossiu
This was, uh, kind of a reply to ambiance that got out of control and then SERIOUSLY OVERSIZED. As all my GL comments with her seem to go. ;)

I bring canon proof (ie. lots of screenshots) for (and all I needed was ONE episode - Episode 17):
WARNING: SPOILERS, SPOILERS FOR TIMESKIP


Why Simon/Rossiu is Completely Canon

#0: When We Were Two Little Boys:


[icon by flauta_de_pollo]
Simon: LOOK LOOK ROSSIU: I'll be your Peter Parker if You'll be My Mary Jane!

#1:
WATCH OUT VIRAL, ROSSIU DOESN'T LIKE PERSISTENT GUYS SO NEAR SIMON:


ROSSIU: PUT AN END TO THAT FLIRTING RIGHT AWAY.


Rossiu: You have trespassed on MY - I mean, STATE property -"


Rossiu: "AND YOU WILL BE PUNISHED."

#2: ROSSIU: I'LL BE WATCHING YOU / GIVING OBSSEIVE STALKERS A BAD NAME:

This is right after Nia accepts Simon's proposal:


Rossiu's SOMEONE IS HOMING IN ON MY SIMON SENSE IS WORKING REALLY WELL:




Rossiu: Yes. Your @$$ is mine, you're not promising it to anybody else.

#3: Princesses Getting In the Way


Rossiu: Yes, and she'll be showing up in short order.


Rossiu: RIGHT ON TIME.




PLEASE BE NOTING ROSSIU'S DRAMATIC CHANGE IN EXPRESSION.
(the eyebrows say it all!)

#4: AND FINALLY, WHY THIS EPISODE IS NAMED WHAT IT WAS:




Rossiu subtext: I DON'T WANT TO LOSE YOU LIKE YOU LOST KAMINA


SIMON IS LESS THAN RECEPTIVE:







THAT'S WHY THIS EPISODE IS CALLED:

Because Stupid Simon is Stupid.

ALRIIIGHT OUT-OF-CONTROL COMMENTS.

POSSESSIVE ROSSIU IS REEEEEEALLY POSSESSIVE.

have you seen the little R18 fanart comic by afire where... uh... Rossiu/Simon are doing it in Simon's chair and Nia calls Simon's cellphone in the middle of it? and Rossiu answers it like "+++;;; HELLO?"
it's kind of funny. but also r18. xD

DON'T YOU JUST LOVE THEM WHEN THEY WERE LITTLE?
they were so cute and just best friends with each other and Rossiu was like "Simon-san!! ♥" every other second? AND THEN TIMESKIP HAPPENS AND THEY'RE ALL TENSE TOWARDS EACH OTHER.

ALSO: "R-Rossiu-kun!" 8)

& i'm personally kinda amused at how Rossiu's like DON'T DO IT, SIMON, IT'S DANGEROUS and Kinon's back there looking kinda sparkly-eyed.

speaking of that
DID YOU SAY YOU'D HAVE A PREVIEW OF THAT FIC FOR ME???
YES PLEASE. :D
21st-Dec-2007 05:55 pm (UTC) - Rossiu = so repressed it's HILARIOUSLY FUNNY
*HOWLS WITH LAUGHTER* OMG, NO, I HAVE NOT SEEN IT YET! Her LJ's friends-only, isn't it? OH WAIT DO YOU MEAN HER art site here? :D I AM GOING THROUGH IT NOW ;D

I have not been around much of the GL fandom so I have not seen much: LINK ME ANYTHING YOU LIKE ♥

oh where I go to be VINDICATED: this entry totally got what I felt about Simon/Rossiu, post timeskip: "I've always thought that, though they appear to have clashing ideals, these two want the same thing at heart. I get this feeling that even though Rossiu screwed him over and Simon was pissed, they never stopped loving each other. Simon wants so badly to believe in people, and the fact that he and Rossiu used to fight side by side for the same cause must have made that betrayal hurt even worse. And Rossiu was breaking down inside the whole time."

AND THIIIS: "RossiuxSimon is so UNBELIEVABLY canon. Those awkward glances, the betrayal, crying, saving..."

XDXDXD MY PERSONAL THEORY ON ROSSIU'S APPARENT CHANGE-OF-HEART after TIMESKIP? REPRESSION. :D When they were young it was totally okay to be all SIMON-SAN ♥ and ROSSIU-KUN ♥ and then when they got older Rossiu got SUPPOSEDLY WISER and went OH NO THIS CANNOT BE, and then BECAME INSANELY REPRESSED and channelled his INAPPROPRIATE FEELINGS INTO INSANE PROTECTIVENESS OF SIMON. ;D

Kinon: *___* IF SIMON KICKS IT I CAN HAVE ROSSIU ALL TO MYSELF ♥
OMG RIGHT AWAY. I CHOOSE AN APPROPRIATE EXTRACT AND THEN I GO POST IT TO YOU ON THE ORIGINAL ENTRY WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS ON? ;)

yeah, it used to be public but someone was taking her art and posting it all over 4chan in places like /a/ and /y/ and getting other people to... pretty much flame her art (mainly because a lot of her art is parody and anonymous just doesn't understand that fact). so she friends-lock'd it. ):
kinda like how someone took one of my kamina/simon fics and posted it all over /a/ and had other people (probably their friends?) come and call me a pedophile for shipping kamina/simon and stuff.
and THAT is why you don't want to go to 4chan. they're fucking cruel over there, i tell you.

this is her site with her GL art though, and the comic i'm talking about is the 2nd little triangle-shaped link under the "comics" section. :D like it said though, it's unworksafe.

... that whole piece of text from that first entry is SO CUTE. and it makes me sad now, thinking of ep23 where Kinon catches him crying to himself over having to sentence Simon. he was probably like SIMON-SAN WAS MY PARTNER, HOW COULD I DO THIS ;_;

HAHAHAHAHA KINON, OH WOW. I THOUGHT YOU WERE NICER THAN THAT. D:

& yes please! :DD ♥
21st-Dec-2007 06:23 pm (UTC) - PREVIEW UP! :D
! She's 021 on dA? I saw her Simon/Viral and I was HEY I KNOW OF THAT ARTIST! I'd only seen Simon/Viral work, so I didn't know she also did Simon/Rossiu! ♥ IT WERE SO PRETTY.

... oh God, that is pretty nasty. I can see why she f-locked, I'd probably do the same if I were her.

D8 AT 4CHAN?! oh my God. I'll stay here and you can ... post with the FUN stuff when the FUN STUFF surfaces? :D

IT'S BRILLIANT, HER ART! I am all :D ALL OVER, ESPECIALLY OVER THE SIMON/VIRAL AND HOW MUCH SIMON/ROSSIU THERE IS. ♥
XDXDXD Kinon is not that nice, I think! Did you see how in Episode 17 she was all TAKE-CHARGE about knowing what the anti-spiral nonsense was up to and Kittan was D8 KINON YOU'VE CHANGED? YEAH, that's what part of my Kinon characterisation comes from. SHE AIN'T THAT UKE. OR THAT NICE... OR SO I THINK.

I KNOW, OMG, IT IS, ISN'T IT? :D SO CUTE, and I am always SO HAPPY WHEN I SEE ANYONE ELSE WHO SUPPORTS SIMON/ROSSIU. THAT PAIRING HAS NO LOVE AND NOT EVEN ITS OWN COMMUNITY.

I HAVEN'T WATCHED EPISODE 23 YET :D :D :D ... yet I'm writing fic set after it. :D I WILL SOON! I like to see how each new episode adds extra nuances to what I think about the series.

AND PREVIEW UP! first approximately 250 words of the fic. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO HIT ME WITH ANY OH GOD YOU HAVE GOT KINON SO WRONG COMMENTS, because I don't know as much about her as you do.
21st-Dec-2007 06:43 pm (UTC) - Re: PREVIEW UP! :D
yep, she's 021@deviantart. she used to do Tales of the Abyss and Ouran, too.

& YEAH, 4chan is like... a really terrible place. you have to stay a while and get used to it. and then people can tell you're a 4channer because you're not affected by serious/disturbing stuff as much as others are.

see, in the early timeskip episodes, the IDEA is to make the viewer hate Rossiu, and Kinon for "changing" and siding with Rossiu, but then you realize both of their motives later (protip: almost EVERYTHING Kinon does ties back to Rossiu somehow.)
but still, there's... normal, cute, shy and quiet Kinon and then there's GUARD DOG MODE (rofl) Kinon who actually TAKES CHARGE OF STUFF unlike her in the pre-timeskip episodes where she just mainly sat in the back, save for where she sat in front of/commanded the radar, so this is probably why Kittan's like "KINON, YOU'VE CHANGED D:"
............/kinonfangirling

EDIT:
see, it's kinda like this comic here, where Kinon innocently stumbles upon a sleeping Rossiu and tries to kiss him, and then suddenly (on the second kiss) she GRABS HIM FORCEFULLY and kisses him, and then the third kiss is all... nice and sweet again. yes.

OH MY GOD WATCH IT SOON? episode 23 is my favorite timeskip episode. mainly because it has Rossiu/Simon AND Rossiu/Kinon and basically clears up everything with Rossiu and with Kinon during the timeskip episodes.

I DON'T THINK YOU HAVE KINON WRONG. 8D i think you've written Rossiu/Kinon well! i can't wait for more of that fic!
i was actually planning on writing this... Rossiu/Simon/Kinon (DON'T LAUGH OKAY) fic that sorta centers on Rossiu's near-suicide, but i wasn't so sure if i was really going to.



(... did i seriously just spend 20 minutes fangirling over Kinon? OH MAN I THINK I DID. THIS IS KINDA BAD.)

21st-Dec-2007 07:14 pm (UTC) - AND EXTRA PREVIEW
SHE HAS GREAT ART! ♥ I'M STILL ALL OVER LOVE OVER HER COMICS. THAT FIRST ONE in the comics section that's HEARTBREAKING POST-EPISODE 8 Kamina/Simon and Simon/Rossiu - it is curious, this is the second time I've seen that particular dynamic in GL fanwork. The first was: Some Things Forgotten - Simon/Rossiu on ff.net. There was also Mismatch - Simon/Rossiu in the past, unrequited Rossiu/Simon, Simon/Nia. I haven't seen much Simon/Rossiu fic around, sadly.

+ Speaking of fic, have A BIT MORE FIC. It helps to do this because it FORCES ME to clean my act up. Otherwise I'd take forever with self-editing.

OH MAN. That Rossiu/Simon/Kinon fic on the GL kink meme was SO GREAT, I would TOTALLY WELCOME MORE. I WOULD NEVER LAUGH AT IT. ♥ I can see it happening, but the only part of that triangle I am a little ? on is the Simon-Kinon angle. NICE RHYMING NAMES THOUGH :D

SO DO WRITE IT! I'LL WRITE MINE, YOU WRITE YOURS? :D I WILL TOTALLY ENCOURAGE YOU! :D There needs to be MORE ROSSIU FIC IN THE WORLD.

4CHAN: WHERE BRAINS GO TO BE BROKEN. A lot of my tolerance level was built up by Abyss fanart, but I realised pretty soon that I have a limit and can only take so much crack. STILL IT IS FUN THOUGH.

AHAHAHAHA I CAN'T HATE ROSSIU. ♥ Or rather I find it very hard. :))) I think it's probably harder for me because I spoiled myself for everything straight up, so everything I feel for a character is coloured by what I know happens in the end. I kind of haven't warmed up to Kinon yet, somehow. I took a while to warm up to Rossiu but then after I did I was OUR LOVE SHALL NEVER DIE.

AHAHAHA ROSSIU IN THE COMIC YOU LINKED. "THANK YOU FOR WAKING ME UP, KINON." CUTE! ;) I like Rossiu's 0___0;;;;;; WHEN HE REALISED WHAT HE HAS AWAKENED IN KINON A HA HA HA HA ~

I spoiled myself for everything via episode summaries and screencaps, but while I know everything, I haven't watched everything. I do watch the BEST-OF scenes via youtube. So I do know everything about Episode 23, but I just haven't seen it.

INCIDENTALLY, I WANTED TO MAKE A WHOLE POST ON YUURI SIMON because:

(1) both are dark-haired and bogged down by administrative work
(2) Rossiu is like a cross between Wolfram and Gwendal >D
(3) Rossiu shares the same seiyuu with Wolfram
(4) Rossiu and Wolfram = Bitchy Uke Who Actually Cares A Lot About the Main Character (or bitchy seme, if you like)
(5) Both Simon and Yuuri have an ANIKI COMPLEX in Kamina and Shouri

(6) YUURI SLAPPING WOLFRAM = SIMON PUNCHING ROSSIU

:D :D :D IT IS OKAY, I DO THE SAME THING WHEN I FANGIRL ROSSIU WTHHHH. XD
21st-Dec-2007 06:05 pm (UTC) - DYING OF CUTE HERE THANKS :D
THANK YOU FOR TELLING ME ABOUT HER SITE, I AM DYING OF CUTE ♥ IN THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY!

SO MUCH SIMON/ROSSIU OMG ♥
21st-Dec-2007 06:09 pm (UTC) - Re: DYING OF CUTE HERE THANKS :D
....AND CLEARLY I AM A LITTLE LATE IN LINKING THAT SITE ROFL
21st-Dec-2007 06:28 pm (UTC) - omg not at ALL :D :D :D
YOU LINKED IT PERFECTLY IN TIME! ;) I found the site, but I didn't quite know how to navigate it, and I wouldn't have gotten to the comics section so fast without you! I THOUGHT THEY WERE BRILLIANT - I VOTE THE COMIC SECTION A+++++++ FOR SIMON/ROSSIU, IT IS SO AMAZING. ♥ THANK YOU SO MUCH, I didn't even know there was THIS much art material for it in ENGLISH! ♥

THE COMICS ARE SO GREAT? ;D One of the BEST heartbreaking ones was the Rossiu finding out about the Nia-Simon engagement one, OH MY GOD. </3 IN THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY. THE THANK YOU MY PARTNER ONE MAKES ME SO HAPPYYYYYY ~
21st-Dec-2007 07:16 pm (UTC) - LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. <33333
♥♥♥♥!!

I LOVE YOUR ICON! I saw it is made by maiki... is it excusively yours? xD I didn't know Maiki made icons! I don't want to steal if it isn't up for grabs, BUT IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL.
21st-Dec-2007 07:20 pm (UTC) - I CAN NEVER GET ENOUGH NIA ICONS
She doesn't make them for general use the way iconmakers do, but she makes lovely icons nevertheless. I actually got that one from Here because I realised she made a lovely Viral icon. SoIum Will explain it to you via email? IT PRETTY? :))

I'VE COMMENTED TO YOU WITH THAT ICON BEFORE HAVE I NOT OMG? ;)

"Rossiu subtext: I DON'T WANT TO LOSE YOU LIKE YOU LOST KAMINA"

*heart breaks*
(Deleted comment)
22nd-Dec-2007 04:40 pm (UTC) - ANIKI GOES D: AT YOU
SWEETIE DON'T GO SPOILING PEOPLE WHO AREN'T ME ~

Even speculation can be spoilery!

I TELL YOU SPOILERS IN EMAIL OKAY?
23rd-Dec-2007 12:10 am (UTC) - *GLARES!* >.>
I actually missed the Rossiu subtext line when I read your post! I wouldn't have noticed if kali_exorin's comment wasn't right under mine... T.T

HOMG WOMAN. I can't believe you're telling me not to spoil anyone. THIS IS NOT FAIR. I SUE YOU NOW. *PROTESTS!*

To be honest... I was upset about kali_exorin spoiling me (I didn't realise she was just QUOTING YOU!) all day: NOW I AM VERY HAPPY TO FIND OUT YOU INDIRECTLY TOLD ME AFTER ALL. I wanted you to be the one to give me the bad news. *wry smile?*
23rd-Dec-2007 06:39 am (UTC) - LITERAL GLARE? :D SAME FANDOM EVEN!
omg sweetie

omg *pat pat pat pat*


I kind of avoid mentioning THAT spoiler because it makes me go all D:, but... I don't know if you would have preferred to find out first on my LJ, rather than watch the episode and go, "... WAIT. WHAT THE HELL! WHY?! WHY?!?! KAMINAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY WARN ME?!"

omg. :(((( It breaks my heart. But really! THE REST OF THE SERIES WILL MAKE IT BETTER I PROMISE. IT REALLY REALLY WILL. NIA WILL MAKE MANY THINGS BETTER. And Simon will get EVEN MORE AWESOME *BECAUSE* OF THIS!

Edited at 2007-12-23 06:40 am (UTC)
23rd-Dec-2007 07:08 am (UTC) - ...you have reached your recommended portion of apologising for today? xD
I COULD HAVE SWEAR SWORN I READ A DIFFERENT COMMENT IN MY INBOX. What made you decide to make it nicer? xD

I know. O.o; It's just that I never imagined the spoiler would be that heartbreaking. *lip-trembles!* I thought episode eight would have this horrible gaping plot hole in it... making everyone want to pretend it never happened? OR MAYBE SIMON KISSED A MOLE-PIG AND DECLARED HIS UNDYING LOVE FOR IT - PISSING OFF ALL THE SLASHERS? LOL!

I was so naive. Siigh.

I think I would've sobbed my eyes out if you hadn't warned me! xD I guess I will just join you in PRETENDING EPISODE EIGHT DOES NOT EXIST. I don't believe you when you say the series will make it better: nothing can fix my broken heart. T.T

22nd-Dec-2007 04:37 pm (UTC) - NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS SIMON, ANIKI WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF LIKE I BELIEVE IN YOU

Kamina *CRIES THE OCEANS ANEW* He does. :( That's why I'm uploading Episode 8. I want you to remember everything good about Kamina and see that life still goes on and that he lives on in people even after he's gone.

I STILL HAVEN'T COME TO TERMS WITH IT YET.

... LET US BELIEVE IN EACH OTHER THE WAY HE WOULD HAVE BELIEVED IN US.

But they make his death okay. Really. *HUGS* Well, it can never be okay, but there is KAMINA FLASHBACK and ALTERNATE EPISODE 6 WITH EXTRA KAMINA (AND EXTRA PR0N) AND THE SPIRIT OF KAMINA RETURNING IN EPISODE 26, SO IT'S LIKE, THOUGH YOU ARE GONE YOU ARE STILL ALWAYS WITH US AND ALIVE IN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS, SORTA THING?

hahaha, I came across this post while searching google for screenshots of Rossiu~

Have you seen the scene of that icon in that episode(it's in 6)? It's so short, and if you're too busy looking at Kamina digging for gold you'll miss it hahah
3rd-Jan-2008 01:47 am (UTC) - Hi there!
*grin* Hello there! I, uh, enjoy reading GL RPs, so I was looking at the Spiral High character list, and I noticed you'd be the Rossiu there! Cool. Best of luck, and have fun RPing!

*grin!* I'm quite fond of Rossiu, I think it probably shows. He's voiced by one of my favourite voice actresses of all time. It's probably why I tried extra hard to like him and succeeded beyond my wildest dreams.

If you need Rossiu fanart I can help out with a couple of sites? The Japanese fanartists do some really gorgeous Rossiu work. I don't know, you might not be so into the fanart thing, but just in case you need it. :)

!! Thank you so much for telling me where that scene comes from! I was actually looking for it like crazy and being all D: when I couldn't find it! Episode 6 - would that be the original uncensored version, or the edited-for-Kamina-wrongness-with-extra-unnecessary flashback one? ;)
3rd-Jan-2008 02:11 am (UTC) - Re: Hi there!
You should join the RP too! It would be so fun to have more members :D I keep prodding various people to join as Guinble sdfkjfdlkg

Mitsuki Saiga is my hero--but actually, I liked Rossiu before i knew about her, and then started watching Moyashimon and--yeah.

Actually, I have bookmarks of GL fanart sites that fill up the entire left hand of my screen+more ahahhahahahhh. I love browsing them so much.

It's in both versions, I think! I took the screenshot from the uncensored one, though. It's near the beginning.

I'm gonna friend you if thats ok because Rossiu fans are A+++ in my book
3rd-Jan-2008 03:00 am (UTC)
I would love to! *grin* Although I think I would do terrible injustice to Guin. (I tend to be quite happy lurking, because I'm so terrified to mess up the characters!)

Saiga Mitsuki is your hero? ♥ ... excuse me while I emit hearts at you ♥ I fell in love with her when I was into Kyou Kara Maou and she was Wolfram (blond boy in my icon). From then I paid extra attention when she was in any series!

I actually watched GL casually for a time and adored chibi Rossiu (because I think he is the only brains in the Gurren-dan), without knowing who he was voiced by. Then I diligently spoiled myself for the series and went, "Oh dear, that's what happens to him when he grows up?"

~ And that's where I discovered he was voiced by Saiga Mitsuki. My joy was literally boundless. I feared he would be the first character she voiced that I didn't love with all my heart, but that has not proved to be the case! ♥

Moyashimon is great! I actually paid more attention to it because she was in it, and I love her voice there. I ship her-character and the main character. *laughs*

Brilliant! *grin* I used to save fanart bookmarks on my computer, until I realised crashing became ultimate heartbreak, so I started putting them up on LJ instead. All the better to inflict other people with, too. :D This is my master GL fanart-link post - it's on my separate Gurren Lagann LJ, which exists as the outlet for all my GL feelings, so I don't subject my friends-list to MORE GL than they can take. *laughs*

I've friended you back! *beams* Rossiu fans! There need to be MORE of us!
3rd-Jan-2008 04:17 am (UTC)
Ohhhh my god I ship Sawaki and Kei toooo *w*
I started watching the show just because I thought it was about microbes--and then realized there were boys in it--and then I heard Saiga and just shat bricks seriously
I'm sad it's over...but it really needs subs.

Oh god my story why i like Rossiu is really weird
I had just marathon'd 1-13 (as those were the only episodes out at the time) and, sometime later that week, I was watching Legends of the Hidden Temple on Nick GaS
And well, there was this kid who looked like Rossiu as a contestant and he was SO CUTE
and suddenly I just liked Rossiu after that. ksfdkj so weird

I'll take a look to see if there's any fanart sites I missed :) this one is definitely my favorite at the moment--I just laugh too much when I go there ahhaha
I draw fanart stuff too-most of my stuff is on deviantart. it's also mostly really dumb comics ahahha
actually these screenshots reminded me of a wonderful comic idea I had and I'm going to go draw it within the next week 8D
3rd-Jan-2008 04:31 am (UTC)
Sawaki and Keiiii ♥ I love your icon! so much. They are so much love.

... I sort of secretly shipped Sawaki and that crazy skeptic!scientific lady who doesn't believe him, REALLY doesn't believe him, in the first few episodes.

I think it is subbed, though: I watched the subbed version. It was available on anime crunchyroll, I think? (I wish I knew the exact link, I saw this at a friend's place)

RL!Rossiu sounds adorable! ;) And hey, Rossiu love for whatever reason, however crazy it sounds to anyone else, is GOOD by me! ;) This, ahaha, is my really long Why I Love Rossiu story. I apologise for how rave-y it is.

OH, so cool! I will definitely go and check the link - and your site - out! :)

I cheer for this wonderful comic idea! :) All the best on it, I hope we will all see it soon! :D
3rd-Jan-2008 04:44 am (UTC)
Well, about the first 6 episodes are subbed, but the last 6 aren't yet :(
