I'm finally, finally starting to feel better, enough that I am going to answer some of the great ship questions I was asked about two weeks ago.

[ profile] ladymercury_10 asked: How about Dick/Babs, and why you don't ship them in YJ (and who you ship them with instead, if applicable).

[ profile] errant_shadows asked: What about your first ever ship? (Maybe something before you even knew what shipping was.)

Were they canon? OTP? Do you still ship them? Did you ever write fic for them? (<== links please, if it's online)

And what about the pairing appealed to your freshly fangirling heart?

[ profile] phemyscira asked: Top five OTPs of 2013?

Any ship that you think you may be very excited about in 2014? (e.g. because of upcoming new instalments to a current fandom, fandoms you may be interested in, etc.)

Dear Yuletide Author,

First of all, let me sincerely say that I requested fandoms and characters I absolutely love, so please do not feel at all wedded to my insane optional details. Ignore them all entirely, pick and choose what works for you, optional details are optional.

If you're looking for more insight into general tropes that I like, check out my tag of bulletproof kinks. (Short list: banter, sex against walls, competency, characters respecting each other, tragic backstories, biting/love marks.)

Things I do not like: noncon, ladies needed to be saved, ladies being treated disrespectfully by the narrative, bleak and hopeless endings.

Warning: the next slew of posts are going to be expansions of comments, because that's how I roll.

First, [ profile] mollivanders and I were talking about early Lizzie/Darcy (LBD) and I said:

I feel like Darcy originally “couldn’t look away” from Lizzie for the same reasons that he is in love with her at the end (her passion, her expressiveness, that she is his intellectual equal, that she is witty) but his love is SO MYOPIC. I firmly believe that Darcy NEVER ONCE actually considered that Lizzie might not be into him; basically, his love was selfish and entirely about his feelings. And on Lizzie’s part, I think she, while being attracted to his face (and, in the LBD-verse) the fact that he’ll actually have an opinion and a debate with her, truly, 100% dislikes him for what are VALID REASONS. He did diss her! He did break up her sister’s relationship! (There is also the Wickham thing, but that is the only piece of why Lizzie initially disliked him that is not 100% factually true!)

Basically, that first proposal HAD to end in rejection, because Darcy needed to look at himself from Lizzie’s eyes and I think Lizzie learning the truth of things and then seeing Pemberley with this sense that it was something she might have had but wouldn’t now (and by seeing Pemberely, seeing all the good qualities of Darcy that hadn’t been on display before) was really pivotal to why they’ll be able to last long-term/ their overall character development.

And because it never gets old, a supercut of Lizzie insulting Darcy:
