The one who seduced you, screwed you over, broke your heart in a million pieces, and laughed about it.
Heroes. I stuck with the damned thing until the very freaking end, and I am not unhappy that I did because my GOD the WALL-verse for Gabriel and Peter was exactly the arc they needed (well, no, the arc they needed would've been keeping them as brothers-and-possibly-twins but that lasted what, two episodes?) but there were episodes of the show that were so bad and it had such potential and the showrunners fucked it up. I will never regret anything I read or wrote or vidded, or my set visit of amazingness, but when I re-watch the Pilot or random S1 episodes, which I still do, it makes me headdesk.

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.
Leverage. I'm almost the entire season behind as it aired while I was traveling, but I still read fic and am pretty well spoiled for the season and I am fine with that, and looking forward to a wonderful catch up marathon on planes in September.

The mysterious dark one whom you used to sit up with talking until 3 AM at weird coffee houses and with whom you were quite smitten until you realized s/he really was fucking crazy: Torchwood. I still haven't watched all of CoE, and while I'll happily read a crossover with something else I love, and I may very well watch all of Miracle Day at some point, I just don't trust the show not to hit one of my major squick points until it's been fully vetted to the end of the season.

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 get with again, although you're relieved s/he doesn't actually live in town: I've just spent about three days reading massive amounts of movie!Thor fic (awww, Loki!) and I may not be done yet. Recs? And yes, I have a vidplot for when the dvd comes out, and may actually go see the Avengers movie just in hopes of Loki vs Tony interaction, flail.

The steady:
Supernatural. If it hasn't lost me yet, I don't think it's going to. To think, when I started watching back in January of 2007, nobody was sure it was going to make it through the summer! And Heroes was the big thing back then! Winchesters, I am with you til the end of the road, which I still hope will be an American Gods thing (as per [livejournal.com profile] lyra_wing) but I doubt that more and more with each episode, and I'm okay with that.

The alluring stranger whom you've flirted with at parties but have never gotten really serious with: While Collar. I read it often, especially things that xover with Chuck or Leverage, but I've never been tempted to write anything, and I haven't vidded to it yet. Back in June I was wondering if the end of S2 might lead to me doing a Neal-centric vid to Little Lion Man and I am pleased to say that at this point, I don't think it works as well as I thought it might back then. But, maybe someday.

The one you hang out with and have vague fantasies about maybe having a thing with, but ultimately you're just good buddies: Current Doctor Who. I respect and appreciate Matt, Karen and Arthur, as well as Alex and Mark and the storylines but it's just not Tennant and Tate. I'm not ruling it out forever, but I'm not there right now.

The one your friends keep introducing you to and who seems like a hell of a cool person except it's never really gone anywhere: Inception. I'm so happy you're all so happy, and the film was adorable but again, I'm not there.

The one who's slept with all your friends, and you keep looking at them and thinking, "How the hell did they land all these cool people?" Still the various Stargate shows. I think they were hitting it big while I was very busy with Harry Potter things, and having babies, so I've never seen a single episode despite the fact that I loved the movie back a million years ago. I would probably like it if I ever took the time for it, but I'm just not interested in spending the time. Um, sorry?

The one who gave you the best damned summer of your life and against whom you measure all other potential partners:
Harry Potter, always and forever, my introduction to fanfic, fanart, fanvids, fanfilms, filking and massive amounts of creativity and positive social change and good things. Also, a lot of crazy, but there's crazy lurking in so many random places on the Internet, we all just need to work around it. And ship Barty Jr/Regulus Black. No, btw, am not in Pottermore yet - still waiting on my email - but I am curious where I'll get sorted and what wand I'll get. I'm mostly unspoiled for the content, too. I really want to discover this on my own, with my son.

The one you recently met at a party and would like to get to know better: Oh, XMFC, you are everywhere on my flist, and I loved the film and I have preordered my blu-ray for the missing scenes and I cannot wait for a sequel set in the time of angst that was the late 60s and 70s.

The old flame that you wouldn't totally object to hooking up with again for a one night romp if only they'd clean up a bit: Ha, no clue. I was mono-fandom-ous from 1999 through 2006, so I don't have anything other than HP from that time period at all.

Your hot new flame: Hunger Games! I'm supposed to talk about fanfic/fanart for YA novels/films at Dragon*Con next week, so I'm, um, reading for research. I think I've read every Finnick-centric fic already though?

The one who stole your significant other: Bandom. :P Ah, fandommigration, you happen and then many migrate again a few months later, don't they?

What a fun little meme. It makes me feel a little behind the times for being so single-fandom most of the time.

I was so monofannish for so long, I do know how you feel.

Btw, am going to be in Philly next month - wish you were there to go to Beijing with me!

So. Um... You got any good Finnick recommendations? I've read the longish one about him and Annie during her Games, but that's it.

My top Finnick recommendation is Jared Padalecki.

Oh, wait, you mean fic, not people who should be cast as Finnick?

Okay, then:
Wisely, I Say, I Am a Bachelor, A View from the Lists and Achilles' Heel by Mithrigil (her other fics are great, too)

Bouncing Back, deemed a bromance between Johanna and Finnick

I also strongly recommend Five Places Cinna Came From. District 4 Cinna's story is very intertwined with Finnick's, but read the other ones as well.

Ooh, thanks for the Hunger Games recs. I've been interested in the fandom, but I had no idea where to start. I was also staying unspoiled for Pottermore until I got my email; you're going to have a blast once you get in! And I'd say I'm also friends with Doctor Who.

(And oh bandom, you homewrecker. XD)

Just FYI, if you make a Thor recs post I will be forever yours (although I will probably be forever yours regardless).
