I know there was a fanfic out there, and admittedly I've only just recently started watching Samurai Jack, but thus far it seems to me that Aku is pure evil! Why the heck would Blossom and Aku ever hook up and have a romantic relationship, much less get married? Unless there's some twist in the Samurai Jack storyline where Aku suddenly makes a heel-face turn to give people this notion, or if Blossom had a psychotic breakdown and went totally evil. There are a limited number of ways for a villain and a hero so far apart on the ideological scale to actually conceive a child, and none of them are a happy meeting.
In short, I don't see any logical reason Aku and Blossom would ever be together, it just makes no sense at all. Again, please, correct me if I'm wrong about Aku, because I'm clearly not getting something here that everyone else is, and it's starting to seriously aggravate me.
I'm not trying to start a flame war. I'm just a little frustrated at the fact that I seem to be on a completely different page here, if not in a totally different book.
We don't know if they willingly get together and like it. We're just making logical guesses trying to make some sense out of the possibilities for the story.
And you have an Aku/Blossom avatar there LOL (sorry buuuut you do )
but oh man here we go. I was hoping this wouldn't happen...I'm afraid I'm going to have to open a can of Akubloss on this forum.
There are several ways Aku and Blossom could be together and love each other. I'm not saying that's the most likely scenario by a long shot. The most likely scenario is that they meet and become enemies and die enemies. And just for the record, I'm cool with this. I'm actually pretty cool with any interpretation of this pairing.
But they have a lot in common, and what I think is a high compatibility. They're not far apart on the ideological scale AT ALL, btw. Aku is sadistic, but he's about as lawful as you can get. Same with Blossom, she lets her dark side out sometimes but she tries to uphold the law. They both want stability and order, they just have different ways of going about it. And they want everyone to listen to them.
They're both leaders, bossy, overbearing, but seriously good at what they do. They both know how to guide and direct and govern effectively.
What does leading take? People skills. Both Aku and Blossom are charismatic, and above all, language-based. Both of them read in their spare time, both of them are referred to as being "brilliant", both of them are excellent speakers with strong vocabularies, both of them use communication to their advantage and owe a lot of their success to their ability to lead others with their words. Blossom needs someone who is going to listen to her and will be able to carry on a conversation with her, and so does Aku. In fact, that's about all either of them want, when you get down to it...
Then of course there's the matter of sharing a similar sense of humor, making music (Blossom=rock guitar, Aku=rave music), and being generally preoccupied with themselves...
Blossom is attentive to the authoritative adults in her life, she idolizes teachers (Ms. Keane) and government workers (Ms. Bellum). Aku has been "alive" for millions of years, and sentient for hundreds, how much do you think he knows? Blossom could learn a lot from him. And Aku, he won't hurt a child, or an animal, and sometimes shows mercy to people he would otherwise just kill or imprison. He isn't always 100% pure evil...
Maybe they'll find solace together, having been created by accident and shunned by humanity from birth for things beyond their control. Maybe they're both sick of how stupid the people around them are. Maybe it's just fate and they couldn't help falling in love, despite being enemies, despite being expected to fight. (ok that's really dumb but come on)
Obviously, they're not EXACTLY alike. There's enough contrast in attitude and morality for them to have things to debate even if they were to go out. But that same contrast makes them interesting as a pair and leaves some room for "opposites attracting", I suppose.
I mean, I personally don't understand Blossom/Dexter. A talkative feminist who bases her self-worth on approval from others, and a brooding misogynist who hates being bothered about anything that doesn't concern him...perfect match right there, guys. But somehow, bleedman paired them in PPGD and made them like each other. Why can't he pair Aku and Blossom in GT and make them like each other?
Not saying that it's going to happen, just saying, it's not impossible, and at least there's ground for them to build on if it does
Gahhhh sorry I get carried away talking about this pairing, these are just the very basic points I use when I deal with them. I can't tell you how many different ways people have made them work...you'd have to search DA and shit for that, because they're a crossover pairing and everyone has their own idea of how they would (or wouldn't) work. Hope this clears some things up for you, anyway. ^^;
