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.
