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...

I totally agree. I'm a gen writer too and see friendship as much more powerful than many people give it credit for. To me, the gradual erosion of Avon and Vila's friendship in B7 season 4, culminating in its final destruction in 'Orbit', form one of the central tragedies in B7. The other is the friendship (other see more) between Avon and Blake which ends ... very badly.
I just ordered Season One and pre-ordered Season Two from Amazon UK. Yay for my multi-region player! *g*
yay indeed! I look forward to your impressions of season 1!
You can pre-order Season two?! I am so getting a multi-region player.
Season 2 is due out in January (it was meant to be this week).
