That meme that I was trying to do last week...
Comment here if you want to play, and I will give you three-six couples that I associate with you, and you make an entry in your journal talking about those couples and fics that you wish the universe would write for you.
Danny/Kono, Hawaii Five-0(
The ship of my heart on that show and I've just seen ep 1.03 on repeat on Sky this morning and this has inspired me to write about them! (And wow, the show was so much better written then. But anyway). I love those two together; certainly in season one Danny needs to chill out and relax on Hawaii and Kono is just the person to help him do it. Plus she won't take any of his crap! I want fic about the two of them after 1.03 where they're kissing undercover and he apologises if he went too far with the pawing of her and all (I have written this but I want someone else's take on it!) and she's like don't be such an idiot, it's fine and when he keeps apologising she grabs him and kisses him just to shut him up. I want fic set in the pilot where he held her hand a minute too long when he shook it and then Chin's all like, don't be getting any ideas with my cousin. Or fic about where he gave her his Saint's medal when she graduated and how much it means to her, or where her mentor was killed and he was there for her.... seriously, early season one was all over the Danny/Kono moments and I miss that! Also, anything to do with the Danny-can't-sext thing is always good!
Veronica Weevil, Veronica Mars
Oh how can people look at season one and not ship them? It makes no sense to me! I want fic about the two of them that tells us about what happened to them in the year between Lilly's murder and the pilot ep. Because Weevil trusts her, or at least knows her from the get go and there's no way he would trust an 09er princess, not even if she was Lilly's best friend. I want to know did they know one another before that, what circles they move in that would have intersected. I definitely want fic post movie where they're both trying to clean up Neptune and his wife has left him and taken the child and she's finding out that the new Logan is not the Logan that she knew and they don't work any more. (Not that, IMO, they ever did that well, but YMMV.) I want to see them falling for one another and resisting the hell out of it because she's gunshy and he still loves his wife.
The real wish I have? Universe altered/fix it fic where she knew about what he was doing and the news that he was married with a child was not news to her. (Yes, I know why they did it, but infodump is not a good reason to eff up such a good relationship!).
The whole enemies turning into friends/lovers trope is made for them. I fell for that the minute I saw them and the I-15 Murders just solidified it in my mind. I love that for two people who had all the reason in the world to distrust one another, they ended up being really good friends, to the point that you could see her pain when he died and he actually said to Grissom that since Sara left Vegas he felt lost and disconnected. He didn't take any crap from her, nor she from him and they always had one another's backs.
I want fic for these two first of all where he doesn't die! That's my number one preference!
I want to see them supporting one another, being there for one another, whether that's to do with Tina or Grissom or the child, I don't mind. I'd love to see something where Warrick is a single dad, trying to raise Eli and Sara doesn't want kids, has never wanted kids, but Eli starts to worm his way into her heart and she takes on the mothering role without even realising it. (And if Eli's older and starts to do a Parent Trap thing, I would love that!) Or something from the first few seasons, before she got together with Grissom but she and Warrick had some sort of fling... maybe post season four where she's dealing with the drinking and he knows what it's like to have an addiction... or he's angry at her for driving under the influence because a drunk driver killed his mother and he doesn't want to believe she'd be that person.
A West Wing pairing of my choosing
I cannot choose just one, there are too many! If I had to pick, I would probably pick Will/Kate, which I know I'm in the minority about but I liked as a pairing back in season seven. (WW fandom back in the day was so much fun, great writers, a multishipper's heaven, where you could find practically anything you wanted for any pairing, and if you couldn't, you floated an idea on a mailing list and someone would do the necessary!) I liked their awkwardness and the idea that they were trying to make this thing work, trying to fly under the radar and just were so bad at it! I'd like fic for them where Kate does go to Oregon with Will, or at least follows him there. I have an idea in my head that she takes a job at some defence company and she hates it and after one bad day she can't take it any more and surprises him at his campaign headquarters/home and basically never leaves. He does his campaigning and she writes her book and she dedicates it to him (because he taught her love is not a four letter word) and they live happily and awkwardly ever after. Or I want to see them talking at the library dedication where he wonders what happened to them and why they could never make it work and she doesn't know either and they decide to go out to dinner and make it work all over again... there is so much potential for these two!
