Meme time  
Comment here if you want to play, and I will give you three-six couples that I associate with you, and you make an entry in your journal talking about those couples and fics that you wish the universe would write for you.

I commented on aeron_lanart and she gave me these:


This one is obvious, and pretty canonical given the Tracy/Hepburn sparring and flirting we saw on screen. I love writing Amanda, I loved Nick, and there isn't enough Highlander The Raven fic out there. Plus, given how the show ended, there is enormous freedom to do whatever I want.

Nick is a good fit for Amanda, he knows exactly who she is and has no expectations but he still loves her enough to forgive her shooting him (even if it did take a decade). Amanda never meant to fall in love, with a cop of all people, but she has. Will it last? Ask her in the morning. But she definitely wants to keep that pretty head on his shoulders as long as possible.

It isn't twoo wuv, that isn't who either of them are. It's... complicated.

Amanda/Nikolai Dante

This one just made so much sense to me - Nikolai is a male Amanda. Bastard son of a Romanov and a pirate in an alternate future where communism never happened, he's a thief, a lover, and if all else fails, he's pretty handy with a blade. Because, in my head canon Amanda taught him all he knows :)

They flirt, they fight, they f...ind solace in each other's embrace and then, in the morning, Amanda dupes him and makes away with the jewels. That sums up their relationship really.

Jack/Ianto (immie Ianto at that)

I don't even really think of Jack/Ianto as a "ship" because it's canon. So in my mind, there could never be anything else. I haven't really written much since CoE (I made Ianto immortal two months before that) but I do have what happened to them planned out in my head. They drift in and out of each other's lives, although together more than apart. Jack cares for Ianto more than he wanted to, but the crafty Welshman dug himself deep under Jack's skin. In my mind, Jack is the needy one, not Ianto as some writers portray it. Jack is broken, and he has a hard time trusting and he has serious abandonment issues (his family, the Doctor and Rose) but Ianto is Immortal and he is loyal to a fault. He may get annoyed with Jack and disappear to parts unknown, but Jack feels safe that he will come back, sooner or later, and he knows if he goes away Ianto will be waiting when he returns.

I just realised that all three of these relationships are outwardly casual. True, deep feelings between them, but the participants come and go, see other people, but always there is tie that draws them back to each other when it matters. I guess that is the nature of immortal couples (except Robert&Gina). Let's face it, most mortals don't stay together forever so immortals certainly wouldn't. Also my shipping is characterised by a lot of badinage. I said badinage, stop it. ;)

I'll play. :)

(And now I have to go find your immie Ianto, 'cause I have either missed it, or not read it in entirely too long. *goes looking*)

Not sure I put in one place on here so you're more likely to find them on AO3 :)

Nori/Thorin, Boromir/Eowyn and Willow/Methos

I checked the tag here first, because that was pretty easy. :)

And hee! *big grin* I have been having fun with those first two lately. And I'm going to have to see if I can find my Willow muse to do more with various AUs in that fandom.

Interesting. Okay, since I don't really associate myself with any particular ships, I'd be interested to see if other people do. Or something like that :D

Methos/Charlotte and Jack/Charlotte spring instantly to my mind and as a third I think it would be Methos/Triona (the reading of which drew me into Forever Knight btw)

I thought only canonical characters were included, so wasn't thinking about them LOL

I didn't realize those stories got you in FK! Love being a fanpire.
