You know, I was thinking. Am I the only person that doesn't think that romantic pairings are the most important bonds people can have?

For example, I was asking for recs on [livejournal.com profile] spnstoryfinders earlier and I realized that my biggest problem is that even though I love Dean/Castiel, that Castiel is actually third in my list of favorite spn chars, after Sam.

Yet the only way you'll get me to pair Sam/Dean, is if Sam's evil and/or if there's dub-con or non-con of some kind involved.

It's because the brotherly bond between Sam and Dean is far more important to me, than any sexual relationship could ever be. In fact, in a brotherly bond as strong as that between Sam and Dean, having sex can only serve to diminish the bond between them, rather than strengthen it.

Especially with someone like Dean who uses sex as a way to keep from connecting with people.

While I prefer the Dean/Castiel pairing, if I read a Dean/Cas fic, then it wouldn't really feel like SPN to me, unless Sam plays a major part. And I don't mean just him being the awesome brother who helps Dean realize he's in love with Cas and then stops aside for the dean/Cas love story.

What I mean is that I want to read a story that is about Sam and Dean and the bond between them, that happens to have Dean in love with Cas. I'm not saying there aren't any, but they're rare and most of them are Dean/Cas lovestories where Sam is a supporting char to their story.

It's odd, because there are some Dean/oc story or het Dean stories, where the love interest is just there to add to Sam and Dean's stories, but you rarely see this done when the love interest is male. And that's kind of sad.

To give an example in other fandoms. I have seen Spider-Man fics with the pairing Peter/MJ where the focus is really on Peter's relationship with aunt May, or even Johnny Storm. but you rarely find a Peter/Johnny fic that's all about Peter's friendship with MJ.

Or I've seen fics that are Buffy/Spike, but where the focus is really Spike's 'friendship' with Xander, but it's are to find a Spike/Xander fic that focuses equally on the connection between Buffy and Spike.

Are slash fics really that stuck on romance that they can't push the romance aside and use it as a minor part of a friendship story? Or am I just not looking in the right places?

What is it about fandom, that even in a show with a strong female lead character that people still seem to prefer focusing on the male characters over the female lead?

A/N: Thanks to light the spark for the beta, couldn’t have done it without her

Summary: Buffy isn't usually the type for one night stands, so is it any wonder that the one time she chose to go for it, the guy was rather memorable?

Buffy shivered. She barely even knew the guy. They’d had one night, over four years ago. But she’d always been possessive, about any men she slept with. Even when she knew the score. )

I remember when Buffy was still on, esp. during s6, that I was on a lot of lists and in between episodes there would be a lot of speculation on what things meant in the previous ep, what they might mean for future eps. How we hoped the characters would act. And then the disappointment with the next ep, when it turns out that Joss decided to throw one of his little 'twists' at us.

Like say Smashed, remember how after that ep, most of us spuffy fans were looking at the tearing down the vacant and derelict house as a sign of taking down the walls and building something new. And then instead we got spuffy as 'harmful sex with Buffy just using Spike to hurt herself", while of course we were still supposed to see Buffy as the good guy. Cause hey, god forbid that we find something wrong in a woman using a man's feelings against him to use him for whatever purpose she might need and then discard him without a second thought, afterwards.

Sorry, bad memories.

But as I was saying, there's shows like that, where plot twists come not from character development, or metaphors, but simply because the writers think they have to give the fans what they need, rather than what they want.

And then there's shows like Being Human.

Does this show have shocking plot twists, damn right it does.

But guess what, they come right out of the characters and the twists are in that the show doesn't shy away from admitting it when the main characters make mistakes. They allow characters to grow, to build on the past and so when the plot twist comes, it hurts, it shocks, but you can see where it comes from and why.

And most of all, they understand the most important lesson of all, that in order to create drama and tragedy, they need to make us care about the characters. They need to make us want to root for them. Not because they're victims, never that, but because of the moments when they aren't victims, when they stand up for themselves. When they apologize for being asses, or risk their life to save a friend

Some shows get that, some shows get that some times you have to give the fans what they want, so that when you give them what they need, they care enough about the characters to follow through with them.

That's all I wanted to say.

Despite what people might believe, I'm not the kind of person to ship easy. I can often see chars in several relationships, with a few exceptions. One of those is Buffy/Spike, up to a point where I can't see Buffy with anyone other than Spike (mostly due to how Buffy was written in s6 and s7). I could give you a long list of why this is, but this rant isn't about spuffy for a change, so let's not*g*.

There's no worse fate for a character than to be the designated love interest )

I don't know what it is with me.

Buffy ramblings )

God this list can go on and on and on... up to a point where there's only one in every five fics posted on both sites that I still want to read.

Is it any wonder that I've started wandering?

That and I just can't seem to find any decent sites for Spider-man fanfic. Mind you, not the movieversion. I want comicverse Spider-man fanfic.

Spider-man ramblings )

On the personal side of things.
My grandmother's in the hospital. I don't know what to think about that yet. Bommeke and us were never close, mostly by her own actions, but still...

And am I a bad person that my first thought after hearing that she might not leave the hospital was about the comics she's letting me keep in her attic? Even if it is the collection I've had since I was about 11, till I moved out, which makes that 16 years of comics...

And yet another post...
I seem to be on a roll

X-men 3, just came back from watching it and loved it.
Could give you a thesis on why and which characters I liked and so on, but that'll have to wait due to me not feeling like it right now*g*

I followed another [livejournal.com profile] su_herald-post and [livejournal.com profile] jgracio came up with the old chestnut: "If there's a chance for a normal, nothing too special about him/her, vamp to not be evil, then any time Buffy kills a new one, heck, any time she kills a vamp without first checking it's background, she might be commiting murder. You're watching a show about a mass murderer. Joss Whedon's empowered female icon is a mass murderer."

Is Buffy a massmurderer? )
