Fandom Pairing Hell...  
Recently, Amber mentioned that she thinks she's going to hell for her fandom pairings. Honey-- I think I'm in the same basket. I was re-watching the two Firefly episodes that have aired on Sci Fi, and I think I saw....
*drumroll*
Mal/Simon.

*sigh* It's the hot, southerly place for me, I suppose. Not like that's anything new. I've always been into certain unconventional pairings. Spander (btvs), Snarry* (Harry Potter), Demando/Usagi (Sailor Moon... way Back In The Day), Padme/Vader...

Still, I think it was all the soulful gazing at Simon on Mal's part while offering him a position as ship's doctor. That and the constant, only-half-carried-out threats of violence. In the Joss-verse, that's like second base. ^_~

*actually, if I'm going to hell for any of these, it's probably this one. ^^;

I've seen that pairing around.
And I have to say, I'd believe Mal/Simon before I'd believe Simon/Jayne.

But I still say my outer space boyfriend gets Kaylee or me or no one :)

also, since you don't watch that community, I'm running a little BoB ficathon over at aldbournewhores in case you have any interest.

*still loves the Firefly love on her flist*

Really? 'Cause I can't find good firefly fic anywhere. What I really want to read in this pairing is gen (because all the characters are fascinating), but some slash wouldn't be amiss either. (*chants* Kaylee/Inara! Kaylee/Inara! ^_~) If you know of anyplace.. *puppy eyes*

also, since you don't watch that community, I'm running a little BoB ficathon over at aldbournewhores in case you have any interest.
Cool! Is this gen, het, slash, or all of the above? It's been ages since I've written any BoB fic... since that last one I wrote for you, actually. ^__^;;;

I haven't gone hunting Firefly fic yet. But there's a ton of LJ communities (and one was purely Simon/Mal which is why I'm guessing it's a big pairing). I wish I had some good places to send you...and, well, I'm tempted to write something myself but that doesn't mean anything about quality or it existing.
*loves your Kaylee/Inara*

The Ficathon is a bit of everything so whatever you request and I can match with. And given that the last one you wrote is one of my favorite BoB fics in existence, I'd love to see you back there.

Actually, I hear Mal/Simon's pretty popular. :D So you'll have to reserve a spot in that special hell ahead of time.
Abyssis: Mal&Zoe - Serenityabyssinia4077 on August 2nd, 2005 02:11 am (UTC)
and actually, if you think about it...

Book is celibate (not that that always stops people *cough* Mulcahy *cough*) and Wash is married (not that that stops people) to Zoe (that might stop people) so the only men left are Simon, Mal and Jayne.

Only so many permetuations there for slashing...or at least, male/male slashing.
gamesiplaygamesiplay on August 2nd, 2005 02:15 am (UTC)
And Mal and Simon are the more obviously pretty ones. Mal/Simon is definitely the Ship of Pretty.

I really can't see Wash with anyone except Zoe--and, well, haven't seen enough of the show to get the full impact of that, but still I get the wrong vibe from Wash to pair him off with anyone else.

That last one would definitely stop me! X_x Zoe is one of the scariest chicks I've ever come across. Possibly the most scary, after Margaret Houlihan in a snit. ^_~ That poor, innocent footlocker...

Again, I say WHERE? I can find nothing but Inara/Mal everywhere I go. Not that I'd necessarily *believe* Mal/Simon... I just saw the possibility, there for a minute.

*thinks* the_pretty_fits, for one. I'm not sure I've ever read any fic for the pairing (I only read Firefly fic that gets recced to me by people I trust); it's just that I've heard the idea bandied about a lot.

I don't see Mal/Simon (I actually don't think Mal even likes Simon too much), but it still makes more sense than Simon/Jayne. But hey, it's a popular pairing, so it must be pushing right kind of buttons for someone(s).

I'm not saying I'd read it or write it, or even that's reall there. My warped brain just saw it at like 2:00 am. ^^; And my brain sees Dumbledore/McGonagal, and the occassional really scary Disney slash, so... X_x;; Yeah, it's not reliable.

There are so many buttons to push, all there not? ^_^

In the Joss-verse, that's like second base.
Heh.

(*hugs* Thanks for, like, existing. Because I'm having a bad night, and reading this post really helped.)

*hugs back* I'm sorry your existance is being difficult. Is there anyone I can, you know, beat up for you? ^__^;;; *hugs some more*
-Meredith
Amberminttown1 on August 2nd, 2005 06:38 am (UTC)
Heh. There actually is someone to blame this time, but she's already beating herself up because I'm not being gracious enough to tell her that it was okay to hurt me, because I've decided that it's not, even though that's clearly what she wants to hear.
...Ahem.

:)

p.s. I love your icon.
Also, your birthday is very soon. Do you want fic? I make no promises that I'll be able to write fic, but you can request fic and I will try.

Oh, I can't *stand* people like that. I could go hurt her, for you. Law of karma and all that. ^_~ Sorry-- I can't help but express my affection via pointless threats of violence. ^^

p.s. I love your icon.
*grins* I used one of your screencaps to make it!

*blushes* Wow, someone rememebered! (Erm... didn't mean for that to be as whiny as it sounded... ^^;) *hugs* I would love for you to write me a fic, if you have a chance. I'll take anything your cute little muse churns out, but I think a 4400 fic would be especially cool. ^__^
-Meredith
Amberminttown1 on August 2nd, 2005 07:17 am (UTC)
It's perfectly fine. I can see the affection. ;)

Whee!

I will try to write you birthday fic, then. "Meredith bday fic" was actually on my summer to-do list, but that story fell through. I will try to write you something 4400 instead.
Amberminttown1 on August 2nd, 2005 09:42 pm (UTC)
So. If your birthday fic happens to be of the verybadandwrong variety, is that going to disappoint you terribly? It's what my brain seems to be agreeing with right now.
Meredith Bronwen Mallory: frozengarnettrees on August 3rd, 2005 06:43 pm (UTC)
I will in no way be disappointed, because it will be Amber!fic, and thus wonderful by very definition. ^__^

Kellyn: mal - firefly by teh_indynytekellyn on August 2nd, 2005 08:00 pm (UTC)
I haven't read fanfiction in the Firefly fandom for about a year, but I searched through my bookmarks, and of the Firefly fanfic links that I have, here are the ones that still work. I'm not sure what's on 'em, or if the content is any good, but I guess it's worth browsing...

Demando/Usagi

...Wow. Awesome! I ship anyone at all with Demando, just because he doesn't get enough love. XD

And Snarry's pretty popular, from what I've seen, actually.
