Comics love, Dean Winters love, chatter about fandom pairings...

COMICS

I loved Gotham Underground #2, I loved it a lot. Because even though Dick didn't get much dialogue he was such a superstar that he stole the show anyway. He goes undercover as a mini Matches Malone (Freddie Dinardo) because Bruce disappeared and Dick is scared and must find out where he is (SUCH DEVOTION), and then, even though Tim is disapproving of Dick's plan--because it seems to be the same plan that Bruce had, which obviously didn't work, and also, the city will be left unprotected--he also appreciates that Dick is the best boss ever because he gives Timmy lots of freedom and he's all *relaxed* and basically the opposite of Bruce, and not only that, he got the girls to fill in for him while he's undercover. Because Dickie loves the girls! (Almost as much as he loves Bruce, but not quite). *HAPPYSIGH* And of course, Bruce is a total hotass.

I wathced the first two episodes of "Oz" last night.

GRIM.

But very entertaining for sure. I'm pleased that Dean Winters is in it because I adore him; a little later in the evening I watched "30 Rock" and he was in it, as Dennis, Liz's loser boyfriend, and god -- SO MUCH LOVE. He's one of those actors who is both incredibly sexy and totally shameless. He always plays characters who shouldn't be remotely likeable but always, always are, because he's so funny and cute.

What do you look for in a pairing? I know for me that I need to be able to see canonical evidence of a strong attraction; which only happens when the actors have great chemistry with each other but it also needs to be in the writing. [I love so much that Lex's obsession with Clark is regularly acknowledged on the show and is unwavering, even after seven years. Hell, he said himself that his obsession with Clark will never die. And despite Lex's dangerous love for Clark, Clark can't stay away from him. Now that, to me, is what great slash is made of.]

Is there a common theme in the pairings you like? I am defintiely attracted by forbidden love, opposite personalities, obsession/devotion, a power imbalance. Buffy/Spike, Clark/Lex and Bruce/Dick all have these things in common (they are my top three ever pairings).

Are you fussy? Do you fall for lots of pairings or does it hardly ever happen for you? Because I appear to be absurdly fussy. Most popular pairings in fandom leave me cold, or interest me only fleetingly. Just as in life, I guess. I can have a one night stand with a pairing and it can be fun, but in the morning I'll be all, ew, put some clothes on and get the fuck out of my house. [DC is the exception to this rule, however. All DC pairings seem to work beautifully, much to my delight.]
