Favourite couple

S. Scanlation group has put up a contest, that people should write about their favourite  yaoi couple. It's hard for me to decide which one is my favourite but I was thinking about it and two of them come to my mind:

from Sadahiro Mika's Under Grand Hotel  Sen and Swordfish
from Nitta Youka's Haru wo Daite Ita Iwaki and Katou

Why them. I have already read this two mangas several times. I generally like yaoi where all the men look like men, where plot and dialogues are good, with lots of hot bed scenes and when characters switch the seme/uke roles (unfortunately this is realy rare in yaoi).

IWAKI and KATO



hmm I have to say that I "only" like Iwaki and Kato as a persons but  I crazy love them as a couple.  I'm really envy of this Yin and Yang relationship they have. This wonderful harmony, partnership and that they always support each other.

My favourite scene is when Kato had some difficulties in his job and had a terrible nightmare. He coudn't wake up but suddenly he felt a nice, calming scent. He woke up and find himself in Iwaki's arms . He was deeply moved that even in his dreams Iwaki had come to rescue him.

And one more thing I just love when Iwaki switch to the seme role.

SEN and SWORDFISH




I really like that I can't decide which one of them I like more because I love them equally. Betwen them is just the right combination of excitement, passion, jealousy, violence, love and lust! My favourite scene is when Swordfish after being raped by the warden finally admit that he done many horrible things to his beloved.

Mayby I just quote the dialogue:
Sword: Sen...I failed you
Sen: We still have a chance to escape
Sword: It's not that. When we first met, I only did horrible things to you. But why did you fall in love with me?
Sen: Walter asked me the same thing...It's the same as this (Sen dropped an apple) The apple didn't fall on its own accord.It just can't resist the pull of gravity. It's the same as this. What about you...When did you fall for me?
Sword: Dunno...Maybe from the moment I first kissed your lips.
Sen: Then maybe the apple has always wanted to kiss the Earth.
Sword: Who are you? A love sick maiden?
Sen: There are some things that you can't resist (Sen is trying to kiss him)
Sword: Nope. I will resist...until we're under the sun.
Sen: You're such a tease.

I agree that Haru wo Daite Ita is terrific. I don't know how many times I've read it, but I enjoy it every time. And yes, I also like that the seme/uke roles aren't fixed.

thanks for commenting on my LJ.
I agree with your Nitta Youka's Haru wo Daite choice : the drawings are incredible and the story so moving.
I also like when the two men look manly and when they switch their roles as in The cornered mouse dreams of cheese.
