So, I was bored and I can't get this thing out of my head
and this comm needs a revival of some sort anyway.
Okay, I've been a KaiRei fan for the last six years (I know it's nothing compared to some of you), and I would like to think that I've read a lot of KaiRei fanfics.
Like any other fan, I love angst fics, as much as the tooth-decaying, fluffy ones. Angst fics that I like a lot were usually of the fall outs between Kai and Rei, either before they have a relationship, or during the relationship itself. Of course, the make ups are also loved oh so much. Race and Waiting by mourir, for example, are two of the best fall out fics that I never get bored re-reading (Oh, I love Takao so, so much in these two fics). Of course, when I said 'fall-outs', I also mean that they get back together.
But I noticed how the fall outs in most fics are caused/started by Kai. I rarely found fics where Rei is the 'villain', or at least the one who started it. Why? Why is it always Kai who becomes the bad guy in fall out fics? Is it because Rei is often seen as the good, well-mannered guy? (Well, I am a biased Rei fan, so please ignore my opinion.)
So, the discussion: What do you think are the flaws in Kai and/or Rei's personalities that you think can lead to the fall-outs of their relationship, either romance or just platonic?
While discussing, please try to justify your reasons according to how you depict their characters. And please respect others with their opinions, and yours will be respected as well.
Thank you for reading, and have fun in the discussion!
