I get triggered by the strangest things.

So, I was typing a proposal at Job #1 today and the customer's name was "Axelrod". Naturally, my brain started thinking about St. Elsewhere and how I really, really wish they would put that series on DVD because, oh my God, I now have the strangest hankering to write Elliot denial fic... etc.

Ah, hell, I don't know if any of you on my flist even know what I'm talking about. *g* But my Stephen Furst fangirly-ness started with St.E. And I still harbor resentment for the entirely needless manner in which they killed his character off not three episodes before the end. I also harbor resentment for the end of the series in general, in which we find out it was all an autistic boy's fantasy. Granted, this finale does have utterly amusing ramifications in the vast television multiverse, effectively taking out at least 150 different programs due to crossovers. (I wish I could find the article which details this, because it is HYSTERICAL.) And I'm sure the writers thought they were so cute and modern and clever when they pulled that stunt. But I thought it was an arrogant slap in the face for all of us who bothered to get invested in the characters. Yes, I know these characters are in fact NOT REAL, but still... *grumble*

In between those mental meanderings and plotting out my babficathon entry (as it turns out, I don't think I have to use early fourth season afterall), I've been pondering why it is that for me, bickering and snark = teh sexx0r!!!!eleven. I mean, despite the popularity of Kirk/Spock, I've always been a Spock/McCoy girl because of the bickering. I just now requested Martok/Sirella for skywaterblue's DS9 ficathon because Sirella insults Martok constantly and I am intensely amused by the fact that she has a seasoned Klingon warrior wrapped completely around her finger. And, of course, there's my thing for Londo/G'Kar (and Londo/Timov). There's a pattern here and I can't quite fathom a psychological explanation for it. *g*
