when or if I started shipping it: They had me at “I will be your shadow”
my thoughts: I ship AoKaga to death but KuroKaga will always be the end game OTP because like Aomine said, it’s fate; it was the Generation of Miracles’ fate to be changed by Kagami’s basketball but it was also fate that Kagami’s basketball was changed by Kuroko’s. In the same vein, Kuroko’s love for basketball which he wanted desperately to regain could not have been revived if not for Kagami’s basketball.
What makes me happy about them: They’re equals in every aspect; neither of their personalities are dominant over the other and neither hold the permanent dominant role in their partnership as they fluctuate between leading. There are moments of doubt, like when Kagami decided that he needed to play without relying on his team so that he can best support them with his utmost strength which caused a scare that he would go down Aomine’s path, but in the end, they depend on each other because they’re partners who build on each others’ skills in order to go beyond themselves. They are also equal in terms of emotionally supporting one another. They both have their moments of weakness as their pasts confront them but they help each other to confront it and move on… what I love best about these moments are they fact that they’re not in your face “I HAVE TO HELP MY FRIEND” scenes but subtle actions that they take, taking each others’ personalities into account like the entire brother rings fiasco. Speaking of actions, that’s another thing… there’s a lot of moments where they don’t talk but just do things and they understand each other and it’s beautiful. There’s also something very natural about their interaction, whether it be brofisting, stabbing each other in the ribs or bending into each others’ knees. It’s playful and friendly without being overly so. Anyway, I’m sure there are many people who write things about their relationship which are more articulate than me.
What makes me sad about them: I can’t really think of anything… beautiful beautiful babies
things done in art/fic that annoys me: It doesn’t annoy me but moe Kuroko isn’t to my personal taste
things I look for in art/fic: Funny, sweet or both. I… really like Kuroko being a creeper but that’s just my personal thing… because Kagami is an angel. Actually, I really like it when they use the words “Kagami-kun is an angel” in any platform because it is true.
Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: AOKAGA AND KIKAGA… but there’s no way in hell those would be canon anyway HA… so no one.
My happily ever after for them: They go their own ways having been encouraged by one another to pursue their own futures, maybe Kuroko staying in Japan and Kagami going to America, but they always come back together… to be honest I really want them to stay together but I think there’s something really special about the thought that, even if they don’t play in the same team anymore, they can always come back to each other and just find comfort because it’s a confirmation that their relationship is a lasting one. Also they might live together. And Kuroko always eats takeout so Kagami gets pissed off and cooks every time he comes back to Japan. Yes. Bliss.
what is their favorite non-sexual activity? Basketball and hanging out at Maji Burger
