How late am I? So late. But I love the pairings-as-exes meme, and anyway it distracts me from the pain of job hunting.

The one who seduced you, screwed you over, broke your heart in a million pieces, and laughed about it.

Snaco. So fantastic. So much hot, kinky, heartbreaking, intelligent, adorable writing and drawing. Such a rarepair :( YOU PAIN ME SNAPE/DRACO! YOU AND YOUR BRILLIANT PORTMANTEAU SHIP NAME!

Also, Peter/El/Neal, but that was the canon, really :(

The old flame you don't see very often any more but whom you still really enjoy getting together with for a few drinks and maybe a pleasant nostalgic romp.

Angel/Spike. It’s basically made entirely of my favourite tropes but... yeah, I haven’t read it for ages.

The mysterious dark one whom you used to sit up with talking until 3 AM at weird coffee houses and with whom you were quite smitten until you realized s/he really was fucking crazy.

Buffy/Faith. I still fucking love it, and yet, Buffy fandom, man. It seems all cool and meta-y and full of gifs and then everyone’s snarling over the state of Buffy Summers’ vagina or whether Spike likes blowjobs. The pairing is not super-crazy but it’s definitely the sexy yet dangerous one.

The one you spent a whole weekend in bed with and who drank up all your liquor and whom you'd still really like to get with again, although you're relieved s/he doesn't actually live in town

Weirdly, considering the characters, this has got to be Neville/Draco :) My gateway drug was this incredible long fic, and then I spent a week frantically tracking down Neville/Draco. But I am fairly okay with only writing a drabble or two...

The steady

Ron/Draco. Hot and lovely and can be written lots of different ways. Also, when I started writing it everyone was *incredibly* welcoming and lovely :D And continues to be so!

The alluring stranger whom you've flirted with at parties but have never gotten really serious with

All Tonks pairings. She is interesting and kinda cool and I have read hot stuff featuring her with Charlie and Bill and Ron and Pansy and Ginny and Fleur and Harry and the twins and Draco. She’s sort of my female Draco, in that I can read her with pretty much anyone. And yet... it never quite gets beyond flirtation. (Which is amply illustrated by that drabble set I did where she fucks each Weasley child in turn.)

The one you hang out with and have vague fantasies about maybe having a thing with, but ultimately you're just good buddies

Marauder fic in general, I think. I like James/Sirius and AnyMarauder/Regulus and there was that ill-advised one-night-stand over the Shoebox Project, but ultimately I’m a Trio Generation sort of girl :)

The one your friends keep introducing you to and who seems like a hell of a cool person except it's never really gone anywhere

I would say Snarry except Snarry squicks me. (No offence! I like Snaco, it’s not a moral judgmenet. It just irrationally squicks me.) The pairing that seems cool and never quite sticks for me is Ron/Pansy. I can totally see the appeal and I’ve read some stuff, dipped my toe in it, but somehow it’s never quite got beyond feeling gleeful if it’s a side-pairing in an H/D fic.

The one who's slept with all your friends, and you keep looking at them and thinking, "How the hell did they land all these cool people?"

Jack/Ianto. I mean, I know how they landed all these cool people. But still! WRITE ME JACK/JOHN, DAMN YOU.

The one who gave you the best damned summer of your life and against whom you measure all other potential partners.

Harry/Draco!!! I don’t do the OTP thing, but Harry/Draco is where I’ve spent by far the most time and where most of my flist comes from and I am always in the mood for a bit of H/D :)

The one you recently met at a party and would like to get to know better:

Rita/Hermione! Said party being Diacon.

The old flame that you wouldn't totally object to hooking up with again for a one night romp if only they'd clean up a bit:

Kingsley/Draco, or Kingsley/Narcissa. They’re titchy pairings, but the ones that came to mind for the ‘clean up a bit’ segment. Because Kingsley is hot and ambiguous and competent and powerful - and the Auror, the hero, the Minister. I like him with Narcissa because they can do some cool power-games stuff and he’s sort of light-side!Lucius and also it’s hot. I like him with Draco because it really lends itself to various sorts of authority-figure kink and also Draco being sort of helped out with his enormous fail.

I like them both! I just wish that basically everything not written by people on my flist didn’t make me feel sort of icky with its LOOK A SILENT BLACK MAN FUCKING A POSH BLONDE!!!-ness.

I think I'd have the same answers for Angel/Spike and Harry/Draco. I love Angel/Spike, but no one's writing them anymore.

Interesting to hear you say that - I've not seen anyone posting it, but I assumed that was because I have, like, a toe in Buffy fandom. But there is undoubtedly years of fic I could unearth if I had the passion - I've read enough post-OotP Harry/Draco!

Kingsley/Draco is a pairing that has always intrigued me. I tend to characterize Draco as a sort of anxious spaz, and I think of Kingsley as the exact opposite of that, so I feel like a relationship between them would be perfect! But there really is a dearth of quality Kingsley/Draco fic.

In fact, I will tell you a secret - I have a massive Kingsley/Draco WIP sitting unfinished on my computer. ;-)

EXACTLY. The one fanon Draco characterisation I really can't get behind is Ice Prince, because he spends so much of canon flailing and squealing and wasting away like a maniacally competitive Victorian heroine.

I am SO going to make you regret telling me that :D :D :D

Right? I'm always flabbergasted when I read fics where Draco is this smooth-talking, totally unflappable James Bond-y type. Though I'm sure Draco wishes he were like that, haha.

WRITE IT

I really want to! I actually love the fic, but the problem is that the plot as outlined in my head is super-epic. It's already 28,000 words and it's barely scratched the surface. So I'm stuck in this sort of vicious cycle where I refuse to post what I have because I hate WIPs, but then I lose my motivation to work on it because nobody ever sees it and it feels never-ending, and on and on.

I don't know, maybe I'm being too uptight? I know that there are lots of people who read WIPs even though I'm personally prejudiced against them. And I'm not the type of author who would let something go unfinished once I started it. Argh! This is a debate I've been having with myself for months, LOL.

Yes! Exactly! I think it's adorable that Draco starts all these canon scenes like OH HOW AWESOME AM I and ends them shouting and hexing and flailing. He *wants* to be all suave like Daddy only less nouveau riche and totally fails. Which is much more fun.

the plot as outlined in my head is super-epic. It's already 28,000 words and it's barely scratched the surface

WHOA. That is super-epic!! And I do totally see that vicious-cycle thing. Possibly cheerleader!betas might help?

maybe I'm being too uptight?

I think it depends. Like, for some people the answer would be yes, but if posting is just going to completely stress you out about writing MOAR and getting it up, then no.

On the other hand... *waaaants*

Well, you inspired me to write another thousand words of it yesterday! LOL. I'm giving it serious thought. But in the meantime, this conversation totally gave me a plotbunny for a Kingsley/Draco PWP I can use for one of the October Daily Deviant prompts! It's super-filthy but I'm going to write it anyway. ;-)

The one you hang out with and have vague fantasies about maybe having a thing with, but ultimately you're just good buddies: Maurader fic in general.

So, I'm totally with you on this one, but have you read this? It seems like it might be right up your alley, (and it is my one little, ok, maybe I could like Maurader fic, if more of it were like this... )

EWW SNUPIN.

Sorry! I mean thank you for the rec :) But Snupin, I dunno, for some reason I can see the potential but it does not work for me at all. I *want* to like it - so much awesome [personal profile] r_grayjoy fic going unread! - but it... well, in the language of the meme, we try and the kiss is terrible and then there's an awkward silence.

haha - well, that is fair. Sometimes the chemistry just isn't there. I totes get it.

(I rec'ed the fic because it is also James/Sirius/etc, James/Remus/Sirius, James/Lily, etc, etc - sort of an interesting exploration of Maurader-era peeps figuring out their sexuality, and the power that comes along with it.)

JACK/JOHN HAS ALL THIS SEXUAL CHEMISTRY! AND COOL BACKSTORY! AND IS JUST GENERALLY VERY HOT AND COOL AND I LIKE HOW JOHN IS ALL 'HEY JACK REMEMEBR HOW YOU THINK YOU'RE A BROODING HERO NOW? YOU ARE NATURALLY THE AMORAL ROGUE.'

Also Jack/Ianto is kind of incoherent as an emotional story. Which I think some people like, there's ambiguity to play with, but Jack/John is just so tight and right there straight away as well as having ambiguity :)

I like Kingsley/Narcissa as a side pairing. I've seen it a couple of times and then it made perfect sense.

:) I like it that way too.

Actually, some time I should write Kingsley/Narcissa where Kingsley is all mentor-y for Harry and also like OMG HE NEEDS SEX TO MAKE HIM LESS CRAZY, and they matchmake Harry and Draco :)

Haha these are all brilliant. I really want to read this Neville/Draco now though...

Also I was never really that involved with Buffy fandom, what was this epic wankfest? O_o

Theft of Assets, Destruction of Property! OH MY GOD HURT/COMFORT DELICIOUSNESS. I really don't like abusive!Lucius as a trope, but I don't care :)

LOL. Nothing I mentioned was an epic wankfest... but in Buffy fandom things often seem to be on the very edge of wank, you know?? Especially since they are STILL having shipwars all over the place.

Hmm. Sadly, not much. [profile] gypsyflame has written some incredibly pervy Neville/Draco which is awesome. 'Lust Over Pendle' by AJ Hall is a classic Neville/Draco which I haven't read. Beyond this, I am just going to link the fics I've got bookmarked:

Aw the first one! I love reading old HP fics and seeing how other people came up with their own endings for the final battle.

And I looked at a gypsyflame one too, it's pretty good. Checking out fictionalley now lol.
