The June Something - Day 1

Starged by the incomparable [personal profile] squidgiepdx, explained in full here. There are only 15 questions, so I'm going to try and answer every other day to spread it out. Though maybe I'll get super excited and post every day, I don't know lol.

Day One: We all have that ONE fandom, or OTP. But what would you consider your backup fandom? Bonus: Who is your backup OTP? Same fandom or different?

Nobody will be surprised to read my one fandom is Stargate Atlantis, and that my one pairing is John Sheppard/Rodney McKay.

But backup fandoms/OTPs is a much more difficult question. I tend to cycle through secondary fandoms as the mood strikes. 90% of the time I'm reading McShep, it's only a very small portion of time I read other things. So. Backup fandom. I went to my pinboard and I opened my various fandom tags, then picked the two with the highest number. I have 470 fics bookmarked for H50 and 282 fics for Star Trek. I haven't actually read new H50 fic in ages - the majority are old bookmarks.

So: my backup fandom is Star Trek, Spirk specifically. I love TOS Kirk and Spock's friendship and support. But I also love nu!Kirk and Spock's more adversarial relationship, and how things might grow from there.  And now I want to read some of that fic LOL.
