Fandom as a Love Experiement (i.e., the bi-annual fandom survey, late this time)

The 2002/2006 version: My Fandoms: the Good, the Bad, and the Developmentally Challenged
The 2008 version: To All the Fandoms I've Ever Loved
The 2010 version: The Fandom on the Edge of Forever

The one who seduced you and fucked you over and broke your heart in a million pieces and laughed about it:
The Vampire Chronicles. I was young and therefore stupid.

The old flame you don't see very often any more but whom you still really enjoy getting together with for a few drinks and maybe a pleasant nostalgic romp in the sheets:
Final Fantasy 8. I keep going back to Seifer/Squall periodically. It's a thing. And I still love, love, love HunterxHunter's Hisoka/Illumi, but I don't read fics for them anymore due to the wildly prevalent OOC-ness.

The mysterious dark gothy one whom you used to sit up with talking until 3 a.m. at weird coffeehouses and with whom you were quite smitten until you realized he really was crazy:
The closest thing that comes to it would be BBC Sherlock. Ugh, I don't want to think about what they did in Season 2. My whole involvement in that fandom is based on two episodes in Season 1, come think of it.

The one you spent a whole weekend in bed with and who drank up all your liquor, and whom you'd still really like to fuck again although you're relieved he doesn't actually live in town:
Skyfall I suppose? 00Q (or M00 when I think about it) is a great ship but I just don't have the time to do it justice.

The steady:
Right now I'm still in the Thor/Loki side of the Marvel fandom I guess. Also Star Trek is something that doesn't really go away, per se.

The alluring strangers whom you've flirted with at parties but have never gotten really serious with:
Well I named a lot in my previous entries. For this one I'll say...Person of Interest. (It didn't help that I came out of that thing shipping Kara/Reese...) And Whitechapel because I can't find any Chandler/Kent fic to my liking.

The one you hang out with and have vague fantasies about maybe having a thing with but ultimately you're just good buddies 'cause the friendship is there but the chemistry ain't:
Still Discworld. Also: A Song of Ice and Fire. Elementary would fit, too, but to a much lesser extent—I like Joan Watson a lot, but I'm not going to ship her with Holmes. For so many reasons.

The one your friends keep introducing you to and who seems like a hell of a cool guy except it's never really gone anywhere:
For a while there was Suits, then there wasn't.

The one who's slept with all your friends, and you keep looking at him and thinking Him? How the hell did he land all these cool babes?:
Les Miserables, due to my deep-seated dislike for Russell Crowe.

The one your friend has fallen for like a ton of bricks and whom she keeps babbling to you about on the phone for hours, and you'd be happy for her except you just know it's going to end badly:
Well there is whole The Social Network thing. I guess it already ended badly, in a way...?
