i fucking love fanfiction like it literally caters for every need, whether you’re wanting 2k of cute couples snuggling on the sofa, a thing of epic length with an awesome plot or a piece of writing that is literally just pages of your favourite characters banging each other whoever invented fanfiction is my fave
I FIGURED IT OUT.
John Hurt is not a different Doctor. He is aged Eight. Eight went through the Time War correct? So what if it lasted so long he grew old? This is John Hurt. This is the man who sealed away the Time Lords and ended the Time War. He is the old version of Eight.
I’m loving you so hard right now, I’m crying because what you said of Sawyer and Juliet made me think of When I’m Not There and how you beta’d that for me before Lost came, plagiarized it and fucked it all up - and I LOVE YOU SO HARD! (also on J/S ;)You have the magic ability to sell me on pairings that canon itself can’t convince me to ship. ;) Insane talent.
majorheelturn asked: controversial opinion questions--1 & 5! (any fandom of course but curious about LOST especially :D)
Ooh, Lost-based wittering ahead!
What OTPs in your fandom(s) do you just not get?
Jack/Sawyer. I get it in theory, in that they’re opposing points of a love triangle, but the dynamic between them really doesn’t work for me. I remember earlyish in the Lost fandom when there was a lot of Jack/Sawyer around that I’d try reading all of the beautifully written fic that was being produced and then feeling like I was totally missing some vital spark that everyone else was seeing. D:
Are there any popular fandom OTPs you only BroTP?
The Lost fandom was so varied ship-wise that I think, out of our wee clique, it would be difficult to find more than a couple of people with the same OTP. I will say that I preferred Juliet and Sawyer as friends rather than as a romantic relationship, as I think they have a great bickering dynamic as friends but I can’t see it translating into romance.
Any fandoms that don’t appeal to you?
Oh, Supernatural and Teen Wolf are the first two that come to mind. I’ve watched quite a bit of both shows and cannot feel the appeal.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Why?
I unfollow people quite regularly, actually. I don’t think of it as an especially big deal, although that’s probably because I’m not very social with people very often on Tumblr! It tends to be if they’re only posting things that don’t interest me, although I’ve been known to unfollow people if they were being obnoxiously tumblr-social-justice-y a lot.
Do you have a NoTP in [insert fandom here]?
I think of a NoTP as something that produces really negative feelings as opposed to ‘eh, not my thing’ feelings. I’m pretty ship-and-let-ship so it’s difficult to think of that for anyone! Outside of Lost, the Doctor/Rose produces instant back-button feelings in me, as does Tony/Bruce from the Avengers.
