But that character is too pwetty to be single! by Boschian-Fantasies But that character is too pwetty to be single! by Boschian-Fantasies
I notice an obnoxious trend with fantards and fanworks. They think that every attractive character needs a love interest or be happily married.

I'm referring to the "Draco in Leather Pants" trope. All the beautiful characters, no matter how cruel, heartless and abusive they are, are all "pure of heart" and just "need a hug", according to these fantards. Pah! If that's not superficial, then I dunno what is. Some of these bishies, whether they are male or female, are just so unsympathetic, dull, bland and/or cruel, that they don't deserve a decent love interest. Not all sexy characters are good guys. Some of the writers who make these bishies even say out loud that "beauty doesn't always equal sympathy". 

I noticed this a lot with Labyrinth fangirls, being that I hang out on Jim Henson inspired sites. They only like Jareth for his looks alone and think that is good looks should earn him a fairytale ending. Sorry to say, but that thought is preposterous enough to make Jim Henson roll in his grave. I bet if Jareth looked like the Skeksis from "The Dark Crystal" or Cornelius from "Planet of the Apes", fangirls would see how unsympathetic (and perhaps pedophile-like) he is and dislike him if he were ugly. Talk about shallow. That's one example I can think of.

In other words, not every attractive character needs to be in a romantic relationship. Hell, I obviously don't pair characters for their looks and give the ugly characters some love. Besides, there is more to a romantic relationship than initial physical attraction. Loving someone for their looks alone is not true love. It's lust and infatuation.

I noticed this with the Hunter x Hunter fandom. A lot of these fangirls want to ship Hisoka with their fan characters but seem to forget he's a psychopath who gets sexually turned on in fights and enjoys killing people.

It's a shonen manga from Yoshihiro Togashi; better known for making YuYu Hakusho. The main characters are Gon Freecs who wants to become a hunter so he can meet his father; Kurapika who is the surviving member of the Kurta Clan who  were slaughtered for the Scarlet Eyes that are triggered by emotions; Killua Zoldyck is from a family of assassins; and Leorio wants to become a doctor and have his own free clinic and be a billionaire. What makes Hunter x Hunter stand out from other action manga in the shonen demographic like Dragon Ball are the setting, character developments, characters, and the unique abilities the characters have by using Nen. There are two  animated tv series adapted from the manga that came out in 1999 and in 2011. Both show their similarities but the 2011 follows the manga more closely while the 1999 version tends to show filler episodes and arcs.

An anime and manga, with a huge rabid otaku fangirl following? Who would have thought?

The character that they are fangirling over is the main rival for Gon and is pretty creepy when has his bloodlust triggered from fighting Leorio and Gon; making Gon terrified from feeling his presence. Keep in mind that Gon is a twelve year old boy and has tracked Hisoka down so he can steal his badge as part of the Hunter Exam. You can type in Hisoka bloodlust on YouTube and see what I am talking about.

I think it's because they can't separate fiction from reality. But the video is not erotic and it's showing how Gon caught the badge from Hisoka by using his fishing rod when he started to become bloodthirsty and killed the Hunter applicant by slashing him with his cards. The video is the 1999 English dub version.

Not to mention, have you ever thought that some of these attractive characters may be ASEXUAL? I'm talking about the single heroes and heroines. Like Elsa from Frozen, Merida from Brave?

Well maybe you're sick to death of it because you should have included that it's not just attractive villains, it's all attractive characters, and some may be asexual. I don't mean to be rude or annoy you by the way, I just love Frozen. Brave was okay, but Merida is representation for asexuals and she's the only leg I have I have to stand on really. I just wish Disney would confirm Elsa as asexual.

To admit.... I was very close attempting to pair a FC with one of my favorite villains from this new cartoon I was watching. He was attractive indeed (and because I love reptile characters but he was also very sly and manipulative for a villain. But the more I thought about it..... I just couldn't see how it would work since my FC was not evil and manipulative he is. And I didn't want it to be like another 50 shades of Grey....

But I agree, I may be a big shipper but there are just some characters that don't really need romance.^^; For me, I can excuse humorous villain characters in cartoons I watch since I can't take their evil too seriously and actually have a fun personality. However, for plot driven shows with certain villains no matter how attractive they are, its a bit shallow and VERY hard to pull of. And even when I do ship them with a baddy, I usually like the ones not many fangirls want because ugly characters need love too. But I still think very hard about these things before I ship, because of reasons.

To be honest, this stamp speaks for the fangirls of Kylo Ren from that new Star Wars movie. Yes, he was attractive but my God... He's very creepy as fuck and has done horrible things and just as bad a Darth Vader. I was kind of pissed off when he revealed his mask to be a pretty boy, if he looked like Jabba the Hutt or Jar Jar Binks or hell the Skeksis then they wouldn't root for him. That's not why I dislike him tho, he was way too dark/brooding and kind of bland. But I did like everyone else in the movie :)

But pairing up the characters just for their looks alone? Have these people ever been in love before? Or are they currently living out a loveless, dead end, one sided relationship?
