In some cases one story can convince me. (Draco/Neville! Cooper/Truman!)
These pairings tell the world that I'm for the most part predictable and mainstream, that I'm into slash almost completely, and that I like psychos. Spike! What else does it say about me, I wonder. Ces! I'm paging you, woman.
Non-obvious stuff from this list is that I really don't care much about X-Files anymore, and would find it a odd and difficult thing to get into an XF story now. Also, some of these, like Spike/Riley, exist mostly in my head. And, hmm--whenever possible I'll pair up the hero with the bad guy, it looks like.
Spike is a little black dress. He goes with everything, everyone.
I think it's obvious I'm bored. Except I'm not! I lie! I'm watching Firefly and despicably ignoring my obligations to certain lovely women, namely herself_nyc and poshcat. No, I'm not bored. I'm--how do you say--drunk! Ah.
