Double-Edged Sword

One of my favorite characters is Yukio Oikawa from Digimon. He's dark, brooding, angsty, has a tragic past, and an (arguably) canon crush on his best friend. Just going by that, you'd think fangirls would be all over him, right?

Only no, he looks like he was whacked repeatedly with the Ugly Stick. So people hate him, and look at me funny when I say that I like him.

On the other end of the spectrum, we have another of my favorite characters, Jirarudan the Collector from Pokémon. Now, Jiri is an obsessed loner, who happens to be *very* attractive.

So consequently, people think I only like him for his looks. let me get this straight--I can only like a hot guy for his looks, but I can't like an ugly guy at all? I like them both for who and how they are, and what they look like is secondary to me.

(and I get the feeling I've posted this before...Ah well. Jiri picture from Shamouti Island, Oikawa picture from The Digimon Encyclopedia.)
