alphabet antics

Taken from heavenly_pearl:

A.) One of your current OTPs.
I may be a tad obsessed with Guy/Natalia (Tales of the Abyss).

B.) A pairing you initially did not consider, but picked up because another fan changed your mind.
This is a bad answer, but I'll say Eriol/Tomoyo (Cardcaptor Sakura), because in no way at all did I consider it or even think of it as a thing to be considered until I started reading fic. It was everywhere! I found it amusing for about ten minutes. I never got "on board", though I did write it (once), because it was the thing to do.

C.) A pairing you have never liked and most likely never will.
Tom/Daria (Daria). Daria did not need a boyfriend, much less a love triangle where she and her best friend were interested in the same guy. Really? The show used to make fun of that kind of cliche, not perpetuate it.

D.) A pairing you wish you liked, but cannot.
Angel/Cordelia (Angel). In theory, I think I could like it. The canon execution was terrible. Maybe they should just be best friends, sibling-like. But I love best friend pairings, so.... argh, what to do?

E.) Have you added anything cracky to your fandom. If so, what?
I guess my two CCS parody fics are cracky. I don't know if they "added" anything, though. But they were fun to write.

F.) What is the longest time you have spent in a fandom?
Technically I've been an Archie fan my whole life, but the most continuous time would be CCS at seven solid years of obsession and contribution.

G.) Do you remember your first OTP? If so, who was in it?
This was a question on that 30 ships meme, I think, and I said Doug/Emmy Jo from New Zoo Revue.

H.) Do you prefer characters from live action series or anime series?
Both. I prefer writing for animated characters, because for some reason I feel weird writing about characters portrayed by live actors. (Yet they all are when you consider voices come from live actors and all that, so I don't know what my problem is.)

I.) Has the Internet caused you to stop liking any fandoms? If so, which and why?
I'm really not so easily swayed as that. I'm pretty confident in my own opinions.

J.) Name a fandom you did not care or think about until you saw it all over the Internet.
Can't think of one. I pick something up if it looks interesting to me, not because other people are into it. I don't think I've ever much liked anything recommended to me, either. My tastes are unpredictable.

K.) How do you feel about the other people in your current fandom?
I stay in my own corner, but I love and appreciate all of my reviewers. They are awesome.

L.) Your favorite fanartist / fanficcer gives you one request. What do you ask for?
Something unusual that I couldn't write myself. Hell, maybe Buffy/Xander. That's something I'll never write but would love to read a really good one.

M.) Your favorite fanart or fanartist.
One time didn't someone post a picture of Guy where he was dripping wet and laughing? I'm not one for fanart usually, but that was really f'ing hot.

N.) Your favorite fanfic or fanficcer.
I had to pull up my old favorites list, and I remember really enjoying The Cowboy's Unofficial Guide to the Open Road (Cowboy Bebop). It's been years since I've read it. May have to read it again someday.

O.) Choose a song at random. Which OTP does it remind you of?
The first song to come up on my Zune shuffle that actually reminds me of anyone is "If You Leave" by OMD, which would make me think of Touya/Kaho (CCS).

P.) Invent a random AU for any fandom.
Um, Guy's a pirate and Natalia's a mermaid? I'm pretty sure this was a movie. Or she could be the pirate queen and he could be her slave. Yeah, I'd read that.

Q.) A ship you have abandoned and why.
Barney/Robin (How I Met Your Mother), which makes me so sad, but the show was so very very bad this year that I stopped watching halfway through the season. I just couldn't do it anymore. I'll usually stick with a show till the end, but I just... couldn't. The characters had devolved too much.

R.) A pairing you ship that you do not think anyone else ships.
Peony/Anise (ToA). Yes, the age thing is squicky, he's old enough to be her father, but I think they'd keep each other wildly entertained. I've only done the background flirtation in How Far and don't think I'll ever actually write anything where they're the focus, but still, it could be fun.

S.) Show us an example of your personal headcanon.
Pretty much anything I've ever written? I will say moonvisions really developed my own interpretation of Kaho's personality and inner processes, so while the events there aren't headcanon, the characterization there is.

T.) If you mostly have same-sex ships, do you have any het ships?
I'm guessing there'll be a flipside to this question, so....

U.) If you mostly have het ships, do you have any same-sex ships?
A couple, but as a whole, slash doesn't do much for me. I still think Bruce/Nicholas from Sweet Valley High should have been a thing, though. There was some serious subtext.

V.) Are you one of those fans who cannot watch anything without shipping?
Nope, I watch plenty of shows where ships are not necessary.

W.) Five favorite characters from five different fandoms.
Troy from Community
Natalia from Tales of the Abyss
Sumire from Kimi wa Petto
Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Makoto from W Juliet

X.) Three OTPs from three different fandoms.
Lorelai/Christoper from Gilmore Girls
Rei/Sana from Kodomo no Omocha
Reggie/Betty from Archie Comics

Y.) A fandom you claim, but in which you have no ships.
Mystery Science Theater 3000

Z.) Ramble about anything fan-related.
This is too vague. I need structure! I'll take suggestions if anyone reads down this far and wants me to ramble about anything in particular.
