Well I spent the morning going through all my LJ posts and tagging them (having at one point told myself I wouldn't bother with tags ::sigh::). So I am feeling quite pleased with myself.
Onto the emails and/or fanfic.
To my Fraser/Kowalski, Gibbs/DiNozzo, and anime friends.
Okay, so Fraser/Kowalski and Gibbs/DiNozzo are two pairings that I not only do not see as slash pairs, but I also cannot see how anyone can see it. Please do not take offence at this, some of my closest friends are F/K fans, and I care about these people dearly, and truly respect their opinions/likes - after all I'm not saying anything against them personally.
I always like to try to show and interest in what my friends enjoy. I like to at least be able to understand from where they are coming, and what it is about a pairing that attracts them, draws them in, makes them have to read and/or write about that pairing, think about the pairing, etc., etc. Basically, all of the things that I do in respect of my pairings. And generally I can do this, at least to an extent. However, these two pairings leave me baffled.
So come on, explain to me, please what it is about these pairings that works for you, that draws you in. What do you see on screen that I don't see?
I won't be getting into either pairing, but I am genuinely interested and intrigued in why you are into them, and why they work for you.
Also, if anyone would like to explain the draw of anime, I would also be very interested.
Thank you kindly.
