liliaeth: (DeanandSam)
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?

Well as I might have mentioned before, there's a sparsity of Spider-Man fanfic on the net, something we really should do something about....

But when I found out that there's actually Spidey novels sold on Amazon, I couldn't help instantly ordering some of them.

I'm thinking of having a real vacation for the first time in years. The last one I had was about three years ago if I well remember. (camper trip to France with my mom, aunt and cousin)

Went online and found this offer of a trip to Pulau Tiga. That's apparantly a small beach resort on the west coast of Borneo. It seems to be within my budget, (esp. if I have another half year to save up for it) since my mom gave me and my brothers and sisters a monetary gift.
(seems like it's part of what she got from my grandmother's inheritance)

That money should just be enough for the trip itself, and I'd mostly have to pay up for beverages, vaccinations, souvenirs and so on.

I know, I should be saving that money, put it aside, use it for something I actually need or so... but damn it, I've been wanting to go on vacation for years and this one really seems cheap for what you're getting out of it.

And hey it's both better and cheaper than Spain. I'll just have to make sure to take some books with me.

Only problem is that you need to be with at least two persons to go. So I have to convince my mom, that it'd be a fun thing for us to do together. Sounds easy doesn't it?

Either way, I just need to get her here to look at it, and hopefully convince her that it might be fun. (and unlike me, she actually likes walking)

Aside of that...

Spoilers for this week's Marvel comics )

Oh yes, one potivive thing, I just that preview page from the 'One More Day' oneshot to make a new header. I love that pic. I'm curious what you guys think of it.

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 )
