I'm done, yay!

I can't believe my class is finally done. Finished my exam yesterday, and I'm fairly sure I passed!

If I pass practicum next month, I'll have a TESOL certificate and qualified to teach English as a second language to... well pretty much anyone. If I can get a job in town that'd be great, because I'm not so much into going over seas at my age. I'm 31 and I just feel too... settled to uproot for a year. By the time I get back, depending on when I go, I'd be 33 or 34... etc. Also I have cats. I AM however considering possibly in the future looking into becoming a high school teacher. Dun dun dun. But that'd mean two more years of school. My spinster great aunts were teachers, so I'd be following in a fine family tradition. Including the spinster bit. ;)

So ANYWAY~ I have a big question for the whole ten of you that still use LJ... I used to be a DBZ fan and wrote yaoi/drew pictures 10 years ago. (Literally, my first DBZ fanfic was posted in March of 2002.) I just got back into the fandom 10 YEARS LATER... and no one is around anymore. :( Seriously. Most everyone stopped posting years ago. Also, because I suck and went and got super busy almost all of my TMNT friends are offline too (yes, time does kill fandoms, it's true.)

So, I was wondering if anyone knew any place online where the DBZ fandom is still alive and well... or alternatively, want to hit me up on AIM? :3 My username is Spacefille, just like my username... elsewhere/everywhere. *is a whore*

While procrastinating on my homework for above said class, I've been writing and reading crap tons of Vegeta/Gohan, I guess it's my old standard. <3 I have a tendency towards Piccolo/Gohan too, but its harder for me to do as they don't have dicks, (as the DBZ Abridged series was so kind to point out. XD) Of course I happily read and write almost anything, including the good old Goku/Vegeta pairing (they're like Raph/Leo srsly) but at this point so many fics have been written with them it gets a bit redundant. (Aw, Goku pretty much forced Vegeta against his will again and he ended up really enjoying it anyway? How sweet! ... no seriously I love that.) But yes, there you go. XD I need my fix!

Oh so you've watched more than I thought you did. XD

I must admit I'm a Bulma/Vegeta shipper, even though I keep pairing Vegeta with Goku or Gohan (though in my most recent fic he's definitely together with Bulma as well).

My theory on the Bulma/Vegeta thing comes down to sex really. Especially the first time, I honestly believe she probably put the moves on him, and he let her continue or followed through with it. One night stand and all that, or perhaps a several night stand until he was like "okay no more distractions, also wtf she's pregnant" and took off.

Frankly Vegeta is probably VERY GOOD in bed. Plus, after he settles in a bit, it's probably reassuring to have someone around that basically acts as the best bodyguard ever. No one is going to attack her or her family. EVER.

Finally they're probably both very good at ignoring each others egos. Bulma doesn't cower at all when Vegeta gets... Vegeta-like (she just gets annoyed), and Vegeta can't blast her because then he wouldn't have a nice place to live. (also if he did blast her someone, whether Goku or Gohan would come and put him in his place and/or kill him. So, gotta keep her alive.)

As for the reason why I think she ended up growing on Vegeta so much (besides their shared child) is the fact that Vegeta's literally never had anyone care about him before. I don't think Nappa counted, he was a Saiyan who loved violence just as much as he did, but Bulma for all her rantiness does care like most woman would. I imagine (and I've written this) that he is different around her in private than when he is around the other fighters, not completely different in personality, but more tolerant and they'd be able to have intellectual conversations, since they're both rather smart. Yeah sure, he'll never give her hugs, but if you have someone to talk to/argue with and who is phenomenal in bed all could be forgiven I think. ;)

Just my thoughts. You've been reading the fics, you know this stuff already. ;)

Yep. Going on towards the middle of Season 9. I've been watching it for months since I've been watching every episode. :)

I can't pair Vegeta with anyone but Bulma. In my opinion, canon is as canon does. If I like what I see, I stick with it. Thankfully DBZ takes care of all that for me and I'm cool with what it gives me, which is rare. It's not like it's Avatar: TLA.

Vegeta and Bulma starting out being all about the sex, I'm cool with that. It tends to be the glue that keeps many couples together and there's nothing wrong with that. It's often the absence of sex that destroys the relationship no matter HOW great you are together. (Yes, speaking from experience). My own theory is the living arrangements were acceptable to both of them, they got along more or less, and it helps the sex is good. Vegeta wound up loving the kid he fathered so it was a good enough reason to stay as any. I'm sure they love each other in private. I agree with you about Vegeta never literally having anyone care about him before. Bulma must have been a refreshing change: finally someone he can trust... because frankly trust is more important before love (helps too if the person isn't afraid of you either). I'm sure the affection followed soon after but that would have been a very big deal to someone like Vegeta being able to find someone who just wanted to help him out for no other motive other than to be nice and that she found him attractive and wanted to keep him around. As for Bulma, you said it: he's the best bodyguard you could ever hope for. Both got themselves a bargain shacking up together for many reasons other than just the ones stated here.

I think Vegeta would be different with Bulma in private. What man isn't? I'm sure even though PDA is out of the question, he more than makes up for it when there are four walls and a closed door between him, Bulma and the world. Their kids are probably the only ones who he wouldn't care if they saw him show Bulma some affection.

Hehe, yeah, I've been reading the fics. Most of them are really good (thanks to the series conveniently leaving lots of leg room for fan fic authors to play around with the dynamic).
