I’m down with OTP

Since exiting denial and coming out as a fangirl two years ago, I have slowly come to embrace who I am. Long discussions with fannish friends help. As does Tumblr. A lot of Tumblr. And so, courtesy of Tumblr, I bring you this:

Storm and Emma Frost by ginmau

A – Your current OTP 
EDI/Legion (when Joker passes on) (Mass Effect)

B – A pairing you initially didn’t consider but someone changed your mind 
Storm/Emma Frost (X-Men), Wolverine/Domino (X-Force).

C – A pairing you have never liked and probably never will 
Gambit and Storm. They are friends. Just friends. And I absolutely love them that way. Same goes for Starbuck and Apollo (BSG). And Buffy and Angel (Buffy). Their pairing is so bad, it ruins the universe. Make it stop.

D – A pairing you wish you liked but just can’t 
Scott and Jean (X-Men). For reasons.

E – Have you added anything stupid/cracky/hilarious to your fandom, if so, what 
One night, this happened… (Mass Effect)

F – What’s the longest you’ve ever been in a fandom 
Star Wars. Since birth.

G – Do you remember your first OTP, if so who was in it 
Han and Leia (Star Wars): This is where my wonderful world of shipping started so long ago. I loved them. I loved them so damn much. And when I couldn’t sleep and/or had nightmares, I would replay this scene in my head over and over until I fell asleep.

“No you’re not your — mrphl…”

H – Do you prefer characters from real action series or anime series 
Movies, TV, video games, comics, anime….

I – Has tumblr caused you to stop liking any fandoms, if so, which and why 
Livejournal originally had me hating people in the Buffy fandom, but I’m over it.

J – Name a fandom you didn’t care/think about until you saw it all over tumblr 
Hmmm… Dragon Age.

K – How do you feel about the other people in your current fandom 

L – Your favorite fanartist/author gives you one request, what do you ask for 
The next phase of Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles. Still waiting, Simon!

Oenomaus, by Simon Field

M – Your favorite fanart or fanartist

N – Your favorite fanfiction or fanauthor 
Beccatoria and Simon.

O – Choose a song at random, which OTP does it remind you of `
The Hunter Gets Captured by the Game: Batman/Catwoman

P – Invent a random AU for any fandom (we always need more ideas) 
Rogue and Magneto never left the Savageland

Q – A ship you’ve abandoned and why 
Laura Roslin/William Adama. They were fantastic together. With the pornstache and the weed. But then season 4 happened. Where did our Laura go? (BSG)

R – A pairing you ship that you don’t think anyone else ships 
LOL this is fandom. On the internet. It is unpossible that someone does not ship even the most obscure.

S – Show us an example of your personal headcanon 
Here (Mass Effect 3).

T – If you mostly have homoships, do you have any heteroships 

U – If you mostly have heteroships, do you have any homoships 
Batman/Superman (DC Comics), Storm/Emma Frost (X-Men), Laura Roslin/Admiral Cain (BSG)

V – Are you one of those fans who can’t watch anything without shipping 
No… but I’m tempted….

W – 5 favorite characters from 5 different fandoms 
Duncan (Dragon Age: Origins), Mara Jade (Star Wars), Crixus (Spartacus), The Illusive Man (Mass Effect) and Aeryn Sun (Farscape)

X – 3 OTPs from 3 different fandoms 
Admiral Hackett/Hannah Shepard (Mass Effect), Imperial Agent/Aristocra Saganu (SWTOR), Jon Snow/Dany Targaryen (Game of Thrones)

Y – A fandom you’re in but have no ships from
Spartacus. Does it count that I just think everyone should sleep with everyone?

Z – Just ramble about something fan-related, go go go
Busy now. Have to go play Dragon Age: Origins.
