*thinks* well, Sandor/Sansa is definitely not the kind of ship I usually go for (for one, IT'S HET!!!!! WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME? ;) ), and I did resist at once, but it didn't exactly last long. Saying that I ship it like burning now covers it, but at the beginning it was weird because as stated I usually don't do het and I usually never care for characters under sixteen either way, so the fact that I'M ACTUALLY SO VERY INVESTED IN IT still feels weird at times. But I got over it. ;) In that sense I suppose I should be surprised at Jaime/Brienne too but the moment I got over the 'I SHIP HET??!!!' thing I realized that they totally fell into one of my two basic ships templates so it's totally not unusual.

oh, can I ask more than one? XD 1, 4, 11, 15 and 17. Too many? XD But I'm curious and I love to hear what other people have to say about fannish stuff and pairings.
the female ghost of tom joad: asoiaf >> robb/theon 5.0janie_tangerine on August 30th, 2012 12:50 pm (UTC)
Well, it doesn't say anywhere that there's a limit. ;)

1) Okay, this is going to be more than one OTP XD Robb/Theon would be one, Bruce/Tony from the Avengers would be another though I don't see myself writing fic for that fandom anytime soon (DAUUUNTIIING), Jaime/Brienne (WHAT NEWS) and well I'm always into Dean/Cas, though right now I'm reading more with those other three. (... okay, mainly the second since there's not much new fic for the ASOIAF ones, but eeeh.)

4) Sam/Gabriel from SPN? I mean, it's not that I wished I liked it but more, I wish I'd get it - because as much as I look at how popular it is I don't really get where it comes from or why most of it is relatively angstless when if I had to write it I'd make it the hugest angstfest ever. And I wish I was more enthusiastic about Renly/Loras but for some reason even if it's actually canon I don't really get fannish over it (when if there's some canon m/m ship I'm usually all over it).

11) Uuuuhm. I'm limiting this to stuff I'm actually active in. SPN: everyone in my FL is awesome, people who have been spending the summer being like 'aaah WE DON'T WANT MORE CASTIEL S8 HAS TO FOCUS ON SAM&DEAN ONLY' (as if S7 didn't do just that) are making me headdesk like crazy. ASOIAF: on LJ I've just had awesome interaction and everyone I know who is in that fandom is absolutely awesome so I think all the good things. On tumblr... well, let's say that considering what I go searching for I spend my time running into Theon haterade/bashing/etcetc, my opinion would be that if you hate on Theon without even bothering to understand where he comes from then I don't hold you in a very high esteem. And idg why it seems that there's always perpetual arguing (always on tumblr), but whatever. I'm just there for the pretty pictures.

15) I put the player on and skipped at random until a shippy song happened. that would be this one. At some point I put it in a Dean/Cas mix ages ago so I suppose it's one it applies to. Atm it's on my Jaime/Brienne playlist tho. ;)

17) .. does it count if I say that I used to ship Sam/Dean a lot before S4 but that now I can't do it unless they're threesomed with Cas? XD I mean, it's not that I hate it now or whatever (I mean I used to ship it, I didn't do a 180°) but I just ship Dean a hell of a lot more with Castiel and after four years (almost five actually) of WHICH SHIP IS BETTER debates in fandom I totally lost most of my taste for it. Unless we're talking about said threesome.

Lost: Boone for life. I'm loyal to a fault, I guess, but what can I do. ;)

SPN: I'll have to go with Castiel here. If Ash had been around more the position would be automatically his, but I've spent too much time having my heart broken over Cas to go with anyone else. <3

ASOIAF: ... why did I pick this, it's complicated. Ah well, if we're talking overall and not characters that are actually still around, it's got to be Robb (book version thanks, I'm still trying to forget about Talisa). If we're talking people that are around, Brienne. But I have Theon, Jaime and Davos just right behind and I can't make up my mind about which one I like best.

Vampire porn: Damon for life here too. I like his doomed and angsty face too much. And he still cracks me up too much for it to be anyone else.

Deadwood: TRIXIE. End of story. I still can't get over how awesome she was. Though Al was a close second.

12 and/or 16, pls ma'am.

the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural dean/cas s7janie_tangerine on August 30th, 2012 04:26 pm (UTC)
You can totally have both! ;)

(and hiiiiiiiiii *hugs back*)

12: ... I'd probably ask for some western AU where some plot happens, some porn preferably happens and everyone is happy when it's over, mostly because my ships of choice lately have been SO DEPRESSING I CAN'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT and I just want people to get something good in their life. If they aren't much for western I can settle for... idk, rock band or 'one of them owns a bookshop'. I like AUs, okay.

and in spirit, I'm gonna answer 16.

16: okay, I'm giving you two since I'm here XD one is a D/C one I'm hoping to write for this bigbang I signed for and the other is a total cracky thing I thought up yesterday evening and that I'm not sure is ever going to exist but whatever, we're talking about plots.

a) SPN, Dean/Castiel, regency AU-that-is-full-of-clichés-like-no-other: Dean lives in Boston or somewhere on the coast in the US, working as a carpenter and following in his father's shoes when he gets a letter from his brother Sam, who has been living in England with some *rich* relatives of his mother who took him in after their mother died in a fire ages before. Sam is getting married to this other *rich* high class girl and wants Dean to come to the wedding and possibly spend an undefined time there - they haven't seen each other in years and he wants to reconnect etc. So Dean says yes and on the boat he meets this guy with perching blue eyes who says he's a businessman going back to England from Boston and they click and they end up having crazy hot sex in a hidden corner on the ship. Except that when Dean gets there he finds out that this guy gave him a false name - his real one is Castiel and he's the cousin of the girl Sam is marrying. And from then on it goes like, Dean hates the bride's family (and his mom's), Castiel hates them as well, there's longing and eyefucking and interesting activities in opera theaters and a bunch of other clichés that I can't go put in here or this comment would end up split in three parts.

b) Game of Thrones/ASOIAF: 70s AU where Westeros is still a separated continent or something with monarchies (but not as absolute as in the regular version) and Winterfell is basically a hippie commune where everyone has sex with whoever they want as long as they're all in the age of consent and not *close* relatives. The rest of the continent is split between approving of it and thinking that it's an insane way of living. The people living at Winterfell couldn't give a damn, especially because since they started doing it everyone is happier. In my head it included a bunch of subplots like Theon escaping from home because the more his dad says horrible things about it the more he wants to go live there and hitchhiking from Pyke to Winterfell and getting rides in the Volkswagen vans a la Lost. Yes, I probably smoked something good yesterday.

Mmmmh I wish I was more into Steve/Tony? I mean, I get it, but with the fact that I haven't read the comics and that the only canon I know is the movie one (and I've seen just Avengers) I'm still not totally down with the ship. But I suppose that when I catch up with the rest of the movies and get some comic book culture behind me I might be a lot more into it than I am right now. ;)

the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural dean 3.0janie_tangerine on August 31st, 2012 08:36 pm (UTC)
*thinks* oh gosh, I have an ASOIAF sparkly new one but it's very gory/nasty and it has spoilers for ADWD and I don't remember if you're there yet so let's see if I have something else *thinks* okay, I'm throwing random ones at you.

Lost: Desmond's blue shirt was originally Sawyer's. It's just that Charlie or someone else stole it from Sawyer's stash while he wasn't around. Yes, I know I wrote crack fic on the subject, but I did it also because I totally believed it really happened. Come on, who else in that camp would have that kind of stylish shirt still hidden somewhere?

SPN: you know that very canon obsession that Dean has with Clint Eastwood? I think it was totally celebrity crush worthy material, not just hero worship or whatever it's called when guys are into Clint's kind of character. This is mostly brought to you by the fact that a) during the western episode, whenever Clint was mentioned, he was having reactions very much similar to the ones *I* have when he's mentioned and b) that only someone who has a serious crush on Clint has seen the movies where he had the pet monkey enough times to be outraged when someone else doesn't remember that it's named Clyde. Also, those movies were pretty much Clint being half-naked for 70% of the time. Yes, it's a very shallow headcanon, but there's a reason why if I ever met Dean I'd be like 'LET'S BE BFFS FOR LIFE' without secondary thoughts. ;)

the female ghost of tom joad: asoiaf >> ashajanie_tangerine on September 10th, 2012 09:13 pm (UTC)
1. Lasciando perdere Dean/Cas che tanto è sempre il mio otp del momento da cinque anni e passa.... BEEH *cough*: ASOIAF: Throbb (MA VA), con Theon in qualunque versione (f! o meno XD più threesome eventuali/necessarie), Jaime/Bri COME SE NESSUNO LO SOSPETTASSE; Avengers: Bruce/Tony (io boh non volevo shippare in quel film ma apparentemente...).

12. Dipende dalla fandom, ma al momento penso che 'UN QUALSIASI COSA DOVE LA MIA SHIP SIA FELICE E NON MUOIA NESSUNO' dovrebbe essere sufficiente per più o meno tutto quello che potrei volere. Se poi il rating va su non mi lamento. ;)

16. Oook la cosa di Winterfell popolata da hippie già te l'ho detta, vediamo se riesco a tirarti fuori qualcosa di nuovo... AH SI LA AR CHE UN GIORNO SCRIVERO' MA PER ORA NON SUCCEDE PERCHE' DEVO STUDIARMI MOOOLTI DETTAGLI: il RW va in maniera leggermente diversa, nel senso che fatti debiti calcoli (da decidersi più dettagliatamente) si decide che Robb farebbe più comodo vivo (e chiaramente imprigionato) piuttosto che morto. Al che invece di farlo fuori e relativi eccidi, finisce nel Dreadfort. Chiaramente non lo sbattono in cella perché nsomma se devono tenerselo come ostaggio non lo si può trattare TROPPO male, ma ad un certo punto il Bolton minore vuole divertirsi e gli fa passare tre giorni nella cella accanto a quella di Theon. IMMAGINARSI LE CONSEGUENZE. Avevo altre idee su sta cosa ma devo elaborare di più, comunque nsomma capisci dove andrò a parare semmai la scrivo.....

18. ... Jon/Sam, epporcamiseria. Pure non shippandoli, COME VOLETE, MA SCRIVETEGLI UN PO' DI FIC A STI DUE DISGRAZIATI invece di farlo fare solo a me. xD O almeno scrivetele a Sam che non se lo fila quasi nessuno, se parliamo di fic D:

19. … ok, quelli sul Theon e sul RW si sanno quindi te li risparmio che è meglio >_> mmmh *pensa* AH, OK, giusto, opinione non popolare che è anche il mio headcanon: presente quando in AFFC Jaime dice ad Edmure che o collabora o quando nasce suo figlio fa una brutta fine? Io sono convinta al 100% che stesse assolutamente bluffando e che fosse convinto che una cosa di quel livello sicuro sarebbe stata abbastanza per sbloccare la situazione, ma chiaramente ogni volta che vado in giro su internet leggo che sarebbe la supposta prova che non è cambiato per niente da GOT in giù. Non che sia uno stinco di santo ma secondo me era proprio palese che voleva trovare un modo per finirla senza combattere ma che non l'avrebbe mai fatto *davvero*, anche perché non aveva mesi di tempo per aspettare che nascesse…. #twocents

23. ASOIAF: … Robb, ma se parliamo di attuali viventi Brienne;
Pornovampiri: Damon (ma Alaric gli sta molto poco dietro)
SPN: Castiel (MA VA)
Heroes: NATHAN >:( *fissa male gli sceneggiatori*
LOTR: Faramir <33

26. Vediamo se riesco a trovare qualcosa che non siano i soliti argomenti che mi fanno disperare… *pensiamocisu* uuuhm ok questa è molto generale, ma ultimamente in ogni fandom dove vado noto che se una ship tira un sacco all'80% è gente che non si è mai incontrata in canon o che si è vista due volte scambiandosi due parole se va bene, e la cosa mi rende abbastanza perplessa O_o' (e non dico solo ASOIAF che sanno tutti le mie opinioni su Jon/Dany e Jaime/Sansa, ma qualsiasi film o tf che vedo ultimamente nel momento in cui vado a cercare fic è pieno di roba con gente che neanche si conosce ma quasi niente di quello che vorrei leggere io xD tirerei di mezzo l'ultimo Batman per dirne uno ma è giusto il primo che mi è venuto in mente). Non riesco a capire se sia un trend o PERCHE' sia un trend se lo è, ma la cosa continua a sembrarmi abbastanza strana. Mah. XD
