apparently I have a thing...maybe.  
I've noticed this before but paid it no great mind--I don't identify it as a kink or anything, but it could be: apparently I like enemy pairings, where enemies (or nominal enemies) become lovers:

Buffy/Spike
Spike/Xander
Sparrow/Norrington
Harry/Draco
Snape/Harry
Mulder/Krycek
Clark/Lex
Simon/Jayne
Kimble/Gerard

But the exceptions to that balance out pretty closely:

Jim/Blair
Jack/Daniel
Mulder/Skinner
Fraser/RayK
Brian/Justin
Darien/Bobby
Sam/Josh
Simon/River

So I guess I don't have a thing. As when I tried to figure out the common denominator in my BSOs, I think I have to conclude there is none. Except that they're mostly slash of course.

I stayed home sick today; after four extra hours of sleep I felt much better. Tomorrow I have to do two full days of customer service training--it's really just a pilot program that I'm sitting in on so that I can give the course instructor feedback, but I think it'll be a nice break. I wonder if there'll be Very Important E-mail waiting for me when I go in tomorrow. I've managed to avoid thoughts of that all day.

For some reason I have out on my desk The Encyclopedia of Unusual Sex Practices. Did you know that genuphallation is the act of rubbing the penis between a partner's knees? I bet Mulder would know that.

Mulder would know it and be able to recite chapter and verse regarding cultures in which it was prevalent, physiological benefits (and drawbacks), and a variety of related psychological issues.

God love 'im.

Oh! Same root as genuflection. God, I love language.

Where are you finding Gerard/Kimball?

I saw one, and it was mostly a 2 AM drunken phone call.

There was a Yuletide story:

Let That Be a Lesson

There's also at least one good zine out there somewhere, though I haven't seen it in years.

Heh. You know I'm going to keep pointing at the Brit/pseudo-Brit thing now that I've got it in my head. Not that, like, y'know, Brits have the monopoly on anything, but... Spike, Norrington, Draco, Snape, Lex, Simon, Blair, Daniel, Fraser, Simon, Sam. I think Harry would have to read as pseudo-American. Hmmm. Maybe the pseudo-Brit thing has something to do with a brand of snark? Gah. I should stop mentioning it until I figure out what I mean. I am going to laugh at myself and retreat to a corner. Possibly to rock.

I have that same...thing. Only I think, with me, it's even closer to being a full-on kink, since the only pairing I share in your second list is Brian/Justin, and really, with friends like those two are you don't really need enemies. *grin* But Spike/Xander, Spike/Angel, Sparrow/Norrington, Harry/Draco, Nsyncer/Backstreet Boy, oh yeah, I'm all over those!

It's something about all that wonderful tension and friction, I think, and the fact that things don't come easy, so the desire and love have to fight their way to the forefront, and I like all that struggle. Plus, pining. I'm a big fan of the pining.
