Now that I'm no longer sick with whatever bug it was that crawled through my system (and now that I do have a fic nearly finished--but not one for Swapping Fates; that one'll take awhile), I felt like dragging out an old meme from the lj comm fandom_memes because I felt like it. This is the "fandoms as exes/lovers" meme, for lack of a better description, which fits for me since I do feel that kind of "romantic love" of sorts for works of fiction (including my own). Funnily enough, Fate/ isn't on this list. (Who knows, maybe it'll be "the steady" one day! I hope so.)

Which fandom is...

The one who seduced you and fucked you over and broke your heart in a million pieces and laughed about it: Bleach. Oh yes, I'm still bitter about Espada Number Zero...and basically that whole last arc with Aizen. Very much a "threw up my hands and stomped away, never to be heard from again" situation.

The old flame you don't see very often any more but whom you still really enjoy getting together with for a few drinks and maybe a pleasant nostalgic romp in the sheets: Hmm, probably The Bartimaeus Quatrology. (But then again, I'm doing a reread, so I might jump back in.) Though Yu Yu Hakusho might count too...

The mysterious dark gothy one whom you used to sit up with talking until 3 a.m. at weird coffeehouses and with whom you were quite smitten until you realized he really was fucking crazy: Nananana, BATMAN! (No, really. Got obsessed with the canon/s for two years, then just got overload. Also the whole "Batman vs Superman" debates got rather awkward since I tended to OT3 them with Lois Lane, so...) 

The one you spent a whole weekend in bed with and who drank up all your liquor, and whom you'd still really like to fuck again although you're relieved he doesn't actually live in town: Probably Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. Though I didn't even get around to fic-writing, I just binged and then stopped. O_o

The steady: Black Cat! Er, the anime, not the Spiderman villain. (Which is ironic, given that on AO3 I have only one fic for it. Also, Yu Yu Hakusho totally counts here too. 

The alluring strangers whom you've flirted with at parties but have never gotten really serious with: Free! Iwatobi Swim Club, Attack on Titan, Utena (subject to change, it hits many a narrative kink of mine), Evangelion, Haibane Renmei...

The one you hang out with and have vague fantasies about maybe having a thing with but ultimately you're just good buddies 'cause the friendship is there but the chemistry ain't: Madoka Magica, entirely too many books, Inception...

The one your friends keep introducing you to and who seems like a hell of a cool guy except it's never really gone anywhere: The Marvel Cinematic Universe/Marvel Comics. I still enjoy the films and such, but I don't go fic-hunting.

The one who's slept with all your friends, and you keep looking at him and thinking, "him? how the hell did he land all these cool babes?": All I can think of is the long-running shonen series like Fairy Tail and One Piece, but it's not so much a matter of quality as it is length (i.e. "How do you all find the time?! And where can I learn too?"

The one your friend has fallen for like a ton of bricks and whom she keeps babbling to you about on the phone for hours, and you'd be happy for her except you just know it's going to end badly: Whenever somebody I know gets into ASOIAF/Game of Thrones, I tend to wonder if they'll stick around to the end or get upset and leave. (I'm in the middle of those two poles right now.)
