1. Unpopular opinions meme!

Name a fandom I participate in/have participated in and I'll list my three most unpopular opinions about it.

2. I have a bunch of icons to talk about from that meme that was floating around, let me know if you want me to pick some of yours.

Icons! )

3. [personal profile] mfirefly10 gave me BSG, SGA, Farscape, and Veronica Mars to talk about my favourite characters )

Meme-ish things, part two! [ profile] iladora asked for five fictional characters I wish were my IRL friends:

Ashleigh Howard, Greek. We would borrow each other's clothes and plan fun college parties and watch 80's rom-coms together, it would be awesome. If I could be friends with any fictional character in the universe, it would be Ashleigh.

Kelly Kapoor, The Office. Okay, honestly, I'm not sure I could stand full-time Kelly, but - Ryan does it? And he's only gone a little bit insane? Plus, she is super fantastic, we could go shopping and paint our nails and watch crappy girly movies and be super excited about BASICALLY ANYTHING THAT IS AWESOME, and she's essentially Mindy Kaling on crack through a sitcom filter, so what's not to love about that?

Ted Mosby, How I Met Your Mother. Oh, Ted! I love him, and I don't even care if he pronounces encyclopedia like a tool. I would let him show me architecture and be pretentious and I would listen super patiently to all his many and varied romantic woes and I would fix him up with all my cool single girlfriends even though it would inevitably end in disaster because one day he might just make it work, and we would dress up and go to really boring parties AND THEN WE WOULD WATCH SOME FIGHTING ROBOTS, COME ON, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO BE FRIENDS WITH TED MOSBY TOO.

Eli Wallace, Stargate Universe. I blame this entirely on a dream I once had where we were friends and bad stuff was happening and then he cuddled me and I felt better, but whatever, he looks like he'd be awesome at cuddling. And that's my entire reasoning. Sometimes you just need a friend who gives good hugs.

Cara Mason, Legend Of The Seeker. I'm - not really sure how this one would work? At least the others live in what is more or less the real world, but whatever - regular Cara, or modern AU!Cara, or whatever, I think she would be an awesome friend, fierce and snarky and loyal and excellent in bed. If you earned it. And nobody can eye roll like Cara, don't even true to argue.

[ profile] corleones asked for my top five literary OTPs, and ... honestly, I'm not sure I have a lot of literary OTPs. Which, considering how much I love shipping, honestly surprised me. Um, I really love Knightley/Emma? But other than that, IDK, I'm sorry I couldn't answer your question!

[ profile] jengrrrl gave me these icons to talk about:

Tell a thousand words )

ALSO, I HAVE BEEN WATCHING MAKE IT OR BREAK IT ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ YOU CAN PROBABLY EXPECT A POST ABOUT THAT SOMETIME SOON. (I know I promised a proper update, but - it's possible I lied?)

We all have them, right? Those pairings we love, or maybe are just a little interested in, but which - for whatever reason - simply aren't popular. Maybe it interferes with a fandom's OTP, maybe it features one or more minor characters, maybe it's a het pairing in a primarily slash fandom (or vice versa). Maybe it's completely cracktastic - the two characters have never actually met in fandom, or there's no good reason to ship them other than just because. Or maybe the pairing is actually canon, but is pretty much loathed (or simply ignored) by fandom in general. And sometimes you just wish someone would come along and say, "Hey, I can write that for you!"

Well, why don't we give it a shot? Comment here with any or all of your favourite unpopular pairings, in any fandom you like, and see if maybe there's somebody out there who will write it. Check out other peoples' wish lists, and if there's a fandom you're familiar with, and a pairing you're not completely opposed to, have a go at it. It can be comment!fic, a snippet, whatever - but come give it a shot, try something new, and help spread the love of unconventional pairings.

[What qualifies as an unpopular pairing? As a general rule, if you couldn't compile a rec list without a) including every fic you've ever read, or b) at all, it probably belongs here.]

Fandoms currently represented: Farscape, Firefly, Gilmore Girls, Grey's Anatomy, One Tree Hill, Roswell, Sports Night, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate SG-1, The West Wing, Veronica Mars, Wonderfalls.
