londovir- by iamsab

Allow me to introduce a new term for the fandom dictionary:

OTF

One True Friendship


Will this gain in popularity? I'm not sure. But I do think it's needed, just as the term "ampersand" was needed. *g* Actually, I'm almost tempted to start a community, modeled on ship_manifesto, based on this concept. Because, being a gen writer at heart, I really do feel even stronger about my favorite friendships than I do about my favorite pairings.

As much as I love and squee over Londo/G'Kar, Londo&Vir really occupies the biggest place in my heart. This is the relationship I love writing the most and the relationship I'm most known for.

And as much as I am excited at the prospect of diving into Stark/Zhaan 'shipper-dom, I find myself even more thrilled at the prospect of exploring the relationship between Stark and John, especially after re-watching Nerve/The Hidden Memory recently and seeing John Quixote for the first time. (Oh, and seeing the intriguing frames in the miniseries trailer as well.) I looove unresolved issues and points of conflict. Plus, John and Stark are just so incredibly... cute together during their escape from the Gammak Base. I wish I had a better word to describe it, but "cute" is the only word coming to mind at the moment. *g*

Now, back to the Starkathon fic...

Hey, I think you should set up such a community. I don't know that I'd have anything to contribute to it, but it'd definitely interest me, and I'm sure a lot of other people would feel the same way.

There was so much potential for interesting relationship stuff between Stark and John after their experiences together in the Gammak Base... I think it's a damned shame canon never followed up on the possibilities, and that so little fic has done so, either.

Lookin' forward to seeing the Starkathon story!
The only trouble is, how would I advertise otf_manifesto? I'm not a big mover-and-shaker in the LJ-verse. And my other two communities- celestial_templ and fic_pensieve- have gotten zero to very little attention, despite the fact that I think they're good concepts.

*sigh*
I ain't exactly a mover-and-shaker, myself, but I'll pimp for ya. :)
