arrrrrrrgh stupid make-out scenes, stupid inebriation, stupid lack of motivation - I'm breaking all my own rules (they do not need to be under any influences to get it on and it is absolutely NOT one-sided) and I could/should have stopped it long ago but a first-kiss scene was requested.  Arrrrrrrgh.

*sends*

(By the way, it's so funny writing Severus with the new canon.  He's a lovesick puppy, and it's IC.)

It's good to see that you are breaking all of your own rules. Sometimes that's what we need to do to push ourselves.

Oh, it's not like I'm normally disposed to writing about people drinking or such, it's just that for this particular ship - they've been under fire for years, "ew why would Lily like him," and even if they are considered it's usually as completely unrequited, so it's sort of my mission to fight that stereotype. Also, I'm getting tired of writing make-out scenes where it's supposed to be ~*~experience of a lifetime~*~ and such, all in different ways. NO MORE.

Well, you know that I'm not a Potter fan, but I think the pairing is interesting. In all likelihood, it's the one I'd go for if I was in fandom (or I'd end up going for something even more fucked up, lol).

And I feel like if you feel strongly about a ship, you can always justify it. And to the people bringing it under fire, you've just got to write the most amazing fic you can. They're still going to be bitchy, but you pretty much can't deny great fic.

But anyway, the thing about breaking your own rules...I just meant that it's always good to be pushed outside of your comfort zone. The experience might not be something that works for you, but you never know when something good might come out of it. *g*

W00t, it's nice to get a vote for my ship even from a non-fan. (Aha, and it really doesn't qualify as fucked-up as ships go. Snape/Hagrid is fucked up. I even think Snape/Harry is fucked up - it still boggles me how big, practically mainstream, that ship is...just another sign how crazy fandom is. Oh, teenage!Minerva/Tom is something that probably counts as fucked up which I really like. And I could go on forever, but it's pretty much cheating since Harry Potter fandom loves their crack pairings, which is the better definition they fit under, anyway.)

It's weird, because normally I don't have a problem justifying their motivations and such...I just haven't adapted yet to the new canon which says they've been friends, even best friends, since they were kids. It still makes me overjoyed that it's true, but it actually makes shipping them harder. They're platonic until Severus gets sucked into his Dark-Arts friends and finally makes an unforgivable mistake, and she's not really wrong for ditching him, though I so wish she hadn't. I never really write AU - I just twist canon as far as I can, heh - but I may have to explore that option more.

Anyway, sorry for the ramble, but it's the first time I've really considered my options for writing more shippy fic since we got the final canon on them.

Oh, true to the pushing comfort zones. I feel like there's so much out there I need to try, writing-wise.
