I've had one hell of a week. In fact, the less said about it, the better. Instead, how about this:


9 – Pairings – For each of the fandoms from day two, what are your three favorite pairings to write?

I don't necessarily have a favorite for all of the fandoms I've written for, so I'm only including the relevant ones:

Harry Potter – Looking through my HP stuff, I'm realizing that I have an awful lot of Canon Character/Original Character stuff happening there – and Percy Weasley: Rogue Demon Hunter is pretty much Ginny/everybody – because she is awesome.

Star Wars – Oh, this one is such a mess, I don't even know if I should...

Han/Leia is the original snarky awesome. Nothing but love.

It was for a challenge, but writing Leia/Wedge was a whole lot of fun, too.

Aves/Wedge! The subtext for their awesome bromance is totally there in the Thrawn Trilogy. Totally.

I actually can't stand Luke/Mara in canon. No other canon pairing has ever evoked such a massive eye-roll from me. They are unrecognizable whiny dork-bots. I love the characters on their own merits, though, so writing them is a total hoot (and crazy challenging – at least to do it well). I do tend to only like them together when they're dark and damaged, though.

I'm also one of the, like, three people out there who writes Mara/Karrde, because I love a good love triangle – and we kind of got cheated out of the more interesting bits of that dynamic with Luke/Leia/Han in the Original Trilogy. Do over! Now with more angst, dysfunction and assassination attempts.

Angel – I think I've written almost everything possible for this one, and had fun with all of them. Although, my Wes/Kate AU never saw the light of day, which made me sad because they were lots of fun together – broken and disillusioned, but ultimately hopeful. Eh, maybe someday.

X-Files/The Lone Gunmen – Mulder/Scully, Byers/Susanne, Jimmy/Yves – pretty much all the basics. I do have a soft spot for some subtextual Byers/Jimmy, and I actually surprised myself by really loving the Byers/OC stuff happening in The Geek Rock Series.

Hercule Poirot – Hastings/Miss Lemon. Oh, shush. She totally has auburn hair in the BBC series.

Leverage – I <3 you, Parker/Hardison.

One Tree Hill – Peyton/Jake, also Peyton/Brooke. Hos over bros, ladies.

Stargate – There's really only one pairing in this universe that I don't like, but only because I like the platonic relationship the characters have so very much. I get why people like to take it to another level, it just doesn't work for me personally. The one fic I wrote for this series was mostly gen, though with heavy subtext for Daniel/Vala and slightly less heavy-handed subtext for Sam/Jack, Sam/Cam and even Cam/Valencia (for the three other people who even remember who she was...).

Veronica Mars – I wrote some Logan/Veronica, because who didn't? ;) This is another show, though, where the appeal for me wasn't about the pairings.

Previous days are here.
