poll that may seem random but really isn't. yeah, it's for fic purposes. sorta.  
So, this morning I went to the gym and delighted myself in finally not having to listen to their crappy radio, since after six months I finally resolved to replace my broken old mp3 and bought a new one (which is small, black, pretty, stylish and therefore I'll refer to it as Sayid. But anyway, not the point). At one point started a song that I hadn't been listening to for ages and stuck a plot bunny in my head which won't go away. Problem is, I could do it in three different ways. One is actually according to canon so that isn't the problem, but the two others would be way more interesting to do. Problem is, I don't know whether the premise for both of them would work. So, uhm, help me out?

About question #1: given that whoever was left behind on the island gets rescued a couple of years later, while he's there Sawyer starts really regretting how things went with Cassidy and that he never met Clementine, when they are back she's the only one that bothers to go see him and that they come together again in a LONG span of time.

About question #2: given that the whole O6 doesn't exist, they all get rescued, Kate definitely decides that she's in love with Sawyer and Jack/Juliet decide to move in since he's alone, she's alone and hey, they started to fancy each other.

Poll #1165813 do I really want to write a fic featuring marriage? Seems so.

Could/Would Sawyer and Cassidy ever marry?

Yeah, why not?
Nah, never in the world.
Maybe if you really give them some good background explanation.

Could/Would Jack and Juliet ever marry?

Sure they would! *draws hearts around them*
Hell not. After Sarah and Juliet's ex they'd never marry. Maybe live together.
If you do a veeeery good background explanation why not?

If you think that both of those couples are the worst choices I could ever go for, you've got some other names which are NOT Charlie and Claire/Des and Penny of people who could marry?

If for both questions 1 and 2 the main answer is no, I'll go for option #3 anyway so if you think that marriage is out of the blue for those four no problem. And anyway if I ever do one of them, it won't be actually focused on the marriage itself.

Okay, random entry is over. I should stop flashing plots when I listen to music, I really should.
feeling: confusedconfused

i think with time Jack and Juliet could. They've both had bad experiences and would be really hesitant about it, but I think Jack's Jackness would eventually trump any bitterness or doubt. He'd want to try and I think Juliet, down deep, is a person who would want to believe in marriage too. Deep down I think they both believe in love and romance and want that. I don't know if it would work out, but I could see both of them being stubborn enough to give it a go!

I ramble. Sorry!

Ramble away, that's exactly what I need! Uhm, you're right. That could definitely be and apart from the fact that it'd be my happiest shipper day on Lost if it ever happened it could go well with the premise. If I do J/J I'll definitely keep it in mind, thanks!

Yay on getting a new MP3 player. Mine has been broken for months and I keep saying I need Sayid to fix it.

Is this a story about a wedding or a marriage? I think Jack and Juliet is possible but think living together would be a good enough step for them. I think Sawyer/Cassidy is just as improbable as Kate/Sawyer! I had to stretch to think of other possible couples. We don't have a lot of marrying kinds left...What about Charlotte/Dan, Hurley/Claire, Alex/Miles (??? I know beyond random), or Sayid/Nadia. What about Rose and Bernard renewing their vows? Does it have to be het?
the female ghost of tom joad: lost lockejanie_tangerine on April 4th, 2008 05:44 pm (UTC)
Uhm... well the problem is that it isn't strictly about the marriage. The protagonist wouldn't actually be in the couple, but someone who was in a previous relationship with one of the people marrying and regretting the circumstances bringing to their split. Which means that if I did Jack/Juliet I'd do it from Sarah's POV and if I did Sawyer/Cassidy I'd do it from Kate's, though yeah, it's utterly improbable that they'd marry. The other option was Boone when Shannon was married (he said she was once), but the other two seemed way more interesting to do. Though the Rose and Bernard one would be a delicious thing to do in another setting ;)

Oh, I like! Either way, I think it could work. I could see Sawyer marrying Cassidy just to annoy Kate. Poor Cass. I would relish Sarah in your hands.

Edited to add. Or you could go crack and do Locke/Island and have the protaganist be Ben!

.... Now that'd be the most BRILLIANT crack ever. Now I'd probably could do it both ways! Oh, Ben, you'd totally be jealous, bless you and your mindfucking. Locke/Island would win, especially if the island sent Boone to officiate the ceremony or something.

I'd probably go and have some sort of pleasure in giving Sarah what she deserves. And since Cass doesn't really need more suffering if I do the serious take I'll probably go AU and do Sarah.

Jack e Juliet si sposerebbero sì, ma sarei talmente nauseata dal tutto che riuscirei a vomitare anche senza aver bevuto troppo, credo. No offence alle tue fic, ovviamente, semplicemente sai come la penso su Jack.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost -> generaljanie_tangerine on April 4th, 2008 06:31 pm (UTC)
No no lo so ;) è che la fic la devo fare dal pov di uno/una ex di qualcuno che si va a sposare e quindi o Kate con Sawyer che sposa Cass o Sarah con Jack e Juliet perchè altri non me ne vengono ;) Sayid/te... la povera Nadia ne morirebbe ma ci si può pensare ;)

Non era mica morta Nadja? Ah no, forse no, ma who cares, tanto tutte quelle che vanno a letto con Sayid poi muoiono immancabilmente. Così potresti anche scrivere una deathfic!

I could see Sawyer and Cassidy hooking up again but I don't really see them getting married. Maybe in a drunken Las Vegas kind of way. But I could see Jack and Juliet getting married. They both seem much more traditional. And hopeful. :)
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack/julietjanie_tangerine on April 4th, 2008 06:36 pm (UTC)
Thank you for the thoughts! Nah, I'll probably go with Jack/Juliet. It also gives me the chance to torture Sarah and Jack/Juliet looks way more plausible. And yes, thankfully they're hopeful! Them at least :)
M: need you to hold me [lost]_chica02 on April 4th, 2008 08:21 pm (UTC)
I said "sure, why not?" for Sawyer and Cassidy. But my hate for Kate and strong desire for Sawyer to find true happiness forever and ever may have swayed that. ;P

And a big DEFINITELY for Jack/Juliet--but with good background explanation. There's just too much shit standing between them and the altar not to have to explain something. Heh.

Whatever you write I can't wait to read it. I've been a bad LJ-er lately, but I have been trying to catch up with your fics. Love, as always. :)
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack/julietjanie_tangerine on April 4th, 2008 08:37 pm (UTC)
If I wrote Sawyer and Cass I'd have Kate suffer a great deal. If I wrote Jack/Juliet, I'd have Sarah suffer even more. I'll have to see where my sadistic tendencies swing for, but even if I don't wed Sawyer and Cass one day I'll just write them because I found out that I like them together and I want to do something about it.

And thanks!! Glad you do, but take your time, they're there and I don't delete! ;) ♥
M: love is a cure [lost]_chica02 on April 4th, 2008 09:53 pm (UTC)
SARAH. I loathe her. I'm giggling sadistically at the thought of you making her suffer. *cackles*

the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack/julietjanie_tangerine on April 4th, 2008 08:41 pm (UTC)
You did! And I think you completely convinced me that I have to do Jack/Juliet. Yep, I think I'll go for J/J. It'll also be more fun because I get to torture Sarah and I had contemplated it for some time.

And you're right, I can't see Sawyer/Cass marrying either, but for the idea I have they were one of the only two alternatives that could have worked and I was undecided for a bit, but nah, Jack/Juliet, indeed.

They are also the kind of people who marries and takes marriage seriously. I think Juliet's feelings for Jack are genuine and that she would love to share her life with him. I think Jack could grow to love Juliet, and accept her as the perfect partner for him.

♥ it's so good to find someone who agrees with you ;)

Weeeeelll. Now.... uhm, I could get brave, do it from Kate's POV and featuring Sarah keeping her in the margin. Now, I kinda could. Mmmmmh, I'll brainstorm about it during tomorrow's lecture. My lecturer is always half an hour late, I've got time ;)

About the S/C/C and Kate suffering, that'd be another nice idea! I think I could do that as a separate thing. I kinda like that.

And please give advice! I made the poll especially for that ;) and I'm going for J/J marriage, yep. Decision made, however it comes together.

I'm not really sure about Sawyer and Cassidy -as I answered to the poll, maybe with a very good background explanation... Not the thing about growing Clementine happy and all that fluff, because it'd sound a little bit unbelievable for him-, but I am about Jack and Juliet. Also with a good background explanation, of course.
I also suggested Sayid and Shannon because, hell, I miss them so much! -Not as much as I miss Boone/Shannon, but I still miss them- I think that a ceremony in the island would be very touching.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack/julietjanie_tangerine on April 5th, 2008 11:50 am (UTC)
I knew that if I put that last question I'd have had lots of good ideas suggested.... now a Shannon/Sayid marriage on island would be great to do! For the poll-related fic I think I'll go with Jack/Juliet also because it was a better idea anyway, but I'm definitely noting the Sayid/Shannon one. I loved them anyway *sigh* I kinda miss whatever Shannon was involved in, these days *sighs again*.
Cleo: get it backcleuchi on April 5th, 2008 04:39 pm (UTC)
HEE, actually I'd never ever thought about Sayid and Shannon getting married on the island, the idea just came to my mind when I stopped to think a little. I'm happy you liked it :)
mkfsdj: Complex Guymrslinus17 on April 5th, 2008 06:41 pm (UTC)
I like the idea! I think that, either way you would need pretty convincing back storys.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost sunjanie_tangerine on April 6th, 2008 08:15 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I think I'll go with J/J though. It's easier and I've got an idea to sneak Sawyer and Cass in anyway ;)

That'd be very clever of you ;]
