Fandom as Love Interests  
I saw this nice little meme when catching up with my f-list, and while it's rather old I think I've never done it myself before...

The one who seduced you, screwed you over, broke your heart in a million pieces, and laughed about it.

BtVs. Oh Anya, oh Giles... *sigh*. X-Files.

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

Highlander. A couple of episodes every now and then. Also, Quantum Leap. I know the show aged badly, but still there's that certain charm. Oh, and of course there also would be Ultraviolet...

The mysterious dark one whom you used to sit up with talking until 3 AM at weird coffee houses and with whom you were quite smitten until you realized s/he really was fucking crazy.

Twin Peaks. I mean, there's still a part of me that loves this show and also most of Lynch's movies to bits and pieces, but after having seen David Wants to Fly it's just not the same.

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 get with again, although you're relieved s/he doesn't actually live in town


The steady

Star Trek in all its various forms. I think I must have gotten into watching Trek when I was about ten, and I'm still loving it every single bit as much as I used to. Maybe even more.

The alluring stranger whom you've flirted with at parties but have never gotten really serious with

No idea, seriously.

The one you hang out with and have vague fantasies about maybe having a thing with, but ultimately you're just good buddies


The one your friends keep introducing you to and who seems like a hell of a cool person except it's never really gone anywhere

Phew, that's a tough one...

The one who's slept with all your friends, and you keep looking at them and thinking, "How the hell did they land all these cool people?

Stargate, various incarnations.

The one who gave you the best damned summer of your life and against whom you measure all other potential partners

Again, Trek. Also X-Files. To bad the magic lasted only three or four seasons.

The one you recently met at a party and would like to get to know better

Fringe. Accidentally caught a couple of episodes and quite liked what I saw.

The old flame that you wouldn't totally object to hooking up with again for a one night romp if only they'd clean up a bit

Life on Mars.

Your hot new flame

Doesn't really exist at the moment.

The one who stole your significant other

To quote [personal profile] selenak: "Err, I'm too polyamorous in my fannish life to have one s.o.?"
