I shall procrastinate on Law Review with this meme. [Sep. 6th, 2014|01:00 am]

Snagged from nearlyconscious.

Pick a fandom and I'll answer these questions (except for the crossed out ones because I don't have these sorts of ships in any fandom, really):

my “FOREVER” pairing
my “sometimes” pairing (if i’m in the mood)
my “friends-with-benefits” pairing
my “adele” pairing (“WE COULD HAVE HAD IT AAAAAALL”)
my “angst” pairing
my “hate sex” pairing
my “working on it” pairing
my favorite threesome
my “crack” pairing
my poly relationship
my ace pairing or aro/queerplatonic partnership
my “i love it but don’t want it to happen” pairing
my “it started out crack but now it’s serious and i regret everything” pairing
my endgame pairing
my “across time and space they will always find each other” pairing
my “settling for second choice” pairing

Fandoms: Harry Potter, War & Peace, Game of Thrones / ASoIaF, Teen Wolf, Once Upon a Time, Downton Abbey, Star Wars, Sherlock, Reign... really, I'll try anything I'm familiar with, but I think in most other fandoms I only ship a couple of things/wouldn't be able to come up with anything close to this many ships.

my “FOREVER” pairing - Jaime/Cersei (Although, they don't have actual OTP status. No one in this fandom does, I think.)
my “sometimes” pairing (if i’m in the mood) - Jaime/Sansa
my “friends-with-benefits” pairing - huh, IDK actually
my “adele” pairing (“WE COULD HAVE HAD IT AAAAAALL”) - Jorah/Daenerys
my “angst” pairing - Quentyn/Gerris
my “hate sex” pairing - Cersei/Sansa ...although, I'm not sure if Sansa can do hatesex
my “working on it” pairing - Tyrion/Sansa
my “crack” pairing - Oberyn/Jaime
my “I love it but don’t want it to happen” pairing - idk
my “it started out crack but now it’s serious and I regret everything” pairing - I never regret everything :p
my endgame pairing - Jaime/Sansa (...it's not even that I love them this much as a pair, it's more that I really, really don't see Jaime/Cersei happening as an endgame thing, and I want both him and Sansa to be happy so...)
my “across time and space they will always find each other” pairing - Jaime/Cersei, Renly/Loras
my “settling for second choice” pairing - meh idk

It's never too late to play! Especially when you're requesting War and Peace stuff :)

my “FOREVER” pairing - Dolokhov/Anatole
my “sometimes” pairing (if i’m in the mood) - Dolokhov/Nikolai, Dolokhov/Petya Rostov
my “friends-with-benefits” pairing - hmm. Anatole/Makarin; Dolokhov/Helene in versions where Dolokhov is in love with Anatole but Anatole doesn't know/notice for whatever reason...
my “adele” pairing (“WE COULD HAVE HAD IT AAAAAALL”) - Dolokhov/Sonya
my “angst” pairing - Dolokhov/Anatole, Dolokhov/Helene
my “hate sex” pairing - Hah. Dolokhov/Bolkonski
my “working on it” pairing - IDK, actually. I don't think there's any paring I see as perpetually "in progress"
my “crack” pairing - Dolokhov/Bolkonski
my “i love it but don’t want it to happen” pairing - ah...well, I kinda want ALL my parings to happen, you know? But, I guess...I wouldn't want Anatole's elopement with Natasha to actually happen, so them I guess? Also, my "crack" ships, too, I guess.
my “it started out crack but now it’s serious and i regret everything” pairing - Dolokhov/Vera, but I regret nothing :D
my endgame pairing - Dolokhov/Anatole
my “across time and space they will always find each other” pairing - Dolokhov/Anatole
my “settling for second choice” pairing - Anatole/Pierre

Why am I so susceptible? All it took was reading the words "Dolokhov/Vera" for me to start thinking earnestly about how it might work. :/

Thanks to your generous Yuletide gift I have decided that Dolokhov / Sonya is Immediately Post-Canon Endgame. They can raise bb Anatole together and roll their eyes at Natasha and Nikolai whenever one of them sends a concern-trolling letter about how much Sonya allegedly misses them, and Sonya and Dolokhov's sister will be best friends and everyone will have a perfectly lovely time. IT'S TRUE BECAUSE I SAY IT IS.

And I would not mind reading an "across time and space" story about Dolokhov and Anatole, either. Which means I should probably go and browse your works on AO3, doesn't it?

So, ok, canonically speaking, I don't think Vera and Dolokhov are really each other's types. Like, he's a little too "tall, dark and angsty" for her and she's a little too banal and noncommittal for her. But I do like the *idea* of it, and I think they could get along well, seeing as they're both practical, logical people. (and I mean, if you were to ever write fic with them... I would totally eat it up. just to put that out there. *g*)

OHMYGOD. I really, really wanna write (or read! but I doubt anyone is gonna write it for me anytime soon) that Dolokhov/Sonya endgame fic. And of course bb Anatole will be an adorable little matchmaker without even realizing it! If only I didn't suck so much at plot or had a brainstorming buddy or somethinggg... Can we like rp parts of this or something? lol. I just love both Dolokhov and Sonya so darn much. They totally deserve their happy ending. The aggravating thing about the epilogue is that it's set in 1820. Which makes Dolokhov 40 and Sonya ~30. By modern standards this is not a problem, but back in that time 40 was old and 30 was old "for a woman" in the sense that someone who wasn't married by 30 was totally considered an old maid, etc. So, when ever I write them post-war I always feel like I'm writing them "too young." IDK, it's weird.

BUT OMG YOU KEEP READING MY MIND. So, I actually at one point had a half-baked idea for a Dolokhov/Anatole re-incarnation fic where they were young 20-somethings living in modern day Moscow and they're both somehow engaged in the preparations for the 200 yr anniversary of the Battle of Borodino festivities. And they see each other for the first time not so long before the holiday and after start having these weird dreams kinda about each other but they always forget the face of the person in the dreams and they don't know why they're having these dreams. And then, on the actual day of the holiday, some sort of stuff happens and they finally kiss or something and remember flashes of their past life....... Yea, I have a ridiculously weird and hyper-romantic imagination lol. Sadly, this story was never written <_< BUT you should totally check out the War and Peace section on AO3. I think, aside from my fics and the one you wrote for me (<3) there's only one other fic on there in English. But it's really good! Anyway, maybe you'll find something you like :)
