9 – Pairings – For each of the fandoms from day two, what are your three favorite pairings to write?

Ah, pairings. One of my favorite things to talk and write about. *rubs hands together in enthusiasm*

Xenosaga - Honestly, there wasn't a set pairing that I preferred to write for when I wrote my (crappy) fic for Xenosaga. I adored Allen Ridgeley (and still do!) so I would pair him with everyone. Shion, Jr, Assistant Scott, pretty much anyone. Although in the Xenosaga anime, Allen and Assistant Scott were just adorable. But I wrote stuff with other pairings as well that didn't involve Allen. Back then, I would just ship everyone really. XD I also liked Gaignun and Jr. together as well, I even have some doujinshi of that pairing somewhere in this mess of anime/videogame/fandom stuff that resides in my house.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Phoenix/Edgeworth. Period. My first OTP, and that's when I began to understand what having an OTP really meant. Although I did prefer to write Edgeworth as seme, so I guess it was more like Edgeworth/Phoenix? XD I dunno why, I just had it in my head that Edgeworth topped. I think it's because in the games he's so forceful and commanding, and Phoenix is more easily flustered and absentminded. It's funny though, because the majority of P/E fans seem to prefer Phoenix topping, so I think people liked my fic just because most of it was Edgeworth topping and something different than what was available in the fandom. XD Even though I've kind of fallen out of the AA fandom, I still adore Edgeworth and Phoenix together, and I probably always will. There's some other pairings that I find cute, but I never really tried to go outside of my comfort zone when it came to writing.

Left 4 Dead 2 - Nick/Ellis. Once again, period. XD My current OTP that I adore. <3 Nick primarily tops just because well, he's older, and he's so MANRY. Despite his whiny screams. XD But it's nice to switch it up and have Ellis top sometimes as well. :3 I do love their dynamic in the game though, VALVe always manages to put in lines that make you squee. >w< When I first started playing the game (when the demo came out) I saw them and I was just like, "Oh man, they're going to be slash bait." And then when I first played the game when it was actually released, the first campaign, Dead Center, and Dr. Nick was going to fix me (Ellis) up... Well, I officially started shipping them even though I was determined not to. Oops. XD I don't mind some other pairings, but once again, no going out of my comfort zone here when it comes to writing. XD

3 – For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?

You always had a really good Edgeworth/Phoenix fics. I like reading them and it helped me get into the yaoi side of the fandom.

I think alot of people saw Edgeworth as the uke because of traditional dominant and submissive traits. Usually men like Edgeworth who have to be the boss/in charge and perfect in their professional lives want to give up some control in their sex lives. I'm sure there are exceptions to the rule, but from what I've read it's pretty normal (at least in dom/sub relationships like with a dominatrix).

Aww, thank you! <3 Looking back, some of them make me cringe now, but thanks. ^__^

Hmm, that is a good point, for some reason I never really thought of it that way. XD What cracks me up are the people who are like, "Edgeworth can't ever top, EVER!" I mean, if they're fucking, then who cares? It's all good right? Fangirls, I tell you.

But now that you've brought up that whole 'needing to give up control' thing, that gives me some interesting ideas regarding Nick and Ellis. Hmmm. :3

"Edgeworth can't ever top, EVER!"

They would not like Edgeworth as one of my friends writes him. That Edgeworth has to be in control so much that he can never bottom (or have anyone on top of him). It's all psychological and I think based on the feeling of being suffocated stemming from the incident when Gregory was killed (so it's not like it's a totally made up thing, just taking a string of canon and applying it to other places).

Well, if the whole "needing to give up control" leads to a Nick/Ellis fic, please tag me as your inspiration. I wouldn't mind reading it either. I still need to get a copy of the game (I know I keep saying that, but I keep forgetting/I'm lazy).

That's actually pretty cool. I would like your friend. :3 I could see that too. *nods*

Haha, if it happens (although writing fic for me lately has been like pulling teeth) I most certainly will. ^_^ And you do! We should play!! :D I can play on PC or 360 so whatever works for me. ^_^

He might add you. He's not very active on lj as far as posting does anymore on his personal journal, but he's introduced me to some cool communities (that aren't fandom related).
15th-Jul-2011 01:55 am (UTC)
Oh yeah? Awesome! :D I'd love to get to know him, and read his stuff. ^_^
15th-Jul-2011 02:49 am (UTC)
I think most of his stuff on the journal as it stands is het, but maybe we can see about getting a yaoi piece or two up.
15th-Jul-2011 11:41 pm (UTC)
*shy wave* ^^;; Aforementioned friend here... mind if I add you?

Loony is right in that most of the creative stuff I share is het but that's because I utterly suck at yaoi. I've done some Ace Attorney stuff though...
16th-Jul-2011 12:11 am (UTC)
Hi! I know I've seen you around before. ^_^ I don't mind at all, I'll go ahead and add you too. :3

Haha, that's all right, I'd be interested to see your AA stuff anyway. ^_^
