First time you read a smutty fanfic. What ship was it and what kinks were involved?
Oh my god okay, get a cup of tea and some biscuits and sit down because I’m about to tell a story.
So this took place during last year’s summer if I remember correctly; the time when I was first introduced to shipping, fanfictions, and all that jazz, and before I’d dived into the ship-filled abyss we call Tumblr. At the time I was becoming a huge fan of the anime Keroro Gunsou/Sgt. Frog via an abridged version of the series. More specifically, SFA (Sgt. Frog Abridged) by TheMidnightFrogs.
In case you didn’t know what Sgt. Frog is, basically it’s about a platoon of alien frogs who are sent to invade Earth, but procrastinate and end up doing fuck all for over 300 episodes and 5 movies. The five main frogs are called - in order of appearance because I’m fancy like that - Keroro, Tamama, Giroro, Kururu (Kululu in the dub because of romanisations), and Dororo.
Now back to the fic. I guess this doesn’t count as the first smutty fic I read, but instead this is the first smutty fic that I ever came across. You see, TheMidnightFrogs do podcasts, and on this one particular podcast I listened to they read a ‘yaoi fanfiction’. At the time I was like: Oh, fanfiction! That’s what my friends talk about reading a lot and they seem to love them. I don’t know what ‘yaoi’ means, but this should be great, right?…
At the time, I did ship a few of the characters. Mainly Giroro and Dororo in the pairing GiroDoro, which was actually a thing in SFA. The one ship I absolutely loathed with all my being, however, was GiroKuru/GiroKulu - which, if you hadn’t guessed, was Giroro and Kururu/Kululu.
So this fanfic is being read out - in the voices used in SFA, by the way - and then it suddenly heats up. And they start fucking. And I suddenly realize what yaoi is.
But you know what made it worse for me back then? It was Giroro and Kururu.
That’s right, my first ever encounter with a smut fic was with my NOTP. I was crying. I hadn’t even listened to the whole thing yet, I was like a quarter of the way through.
So that’s the story!
Now for a bit of after-story. I cried and played Minecraft with my friends, one of them sent me a fluffy GiroDoro fanfiction and everything was fine…for like two days.
Long story short, I listened to the entire fic and then GiroKuru became my first ever OTP. I’m not even joking, that’s how it happened and I find it fucking hilarious.
Make me confess to fandom-related things! I might have to answer tomorrow though…because sleep.
