I always reckon that I'm really into something by the time I start to develop the love for a certain pairing. With some it's obvious, for instance Nottingham/Robin in Robin Hood fandom, or perhaps Lecter/Graham in the Hannibal Lecter series.

But sometimes a fandom comes along that assails me with hundreds of ideas and pairings, great characterisation doled out lavishly but with plenty of holes to fill in with my own mind, just like Harry Potter.

Over the years I've role played more of these pairings than I've written, but even if I just list the stories I've written they include Snape/Harry, Harry/Draco, Fenrir/Draco, Fenrir/Harry, Harry/Ron, Hermione/Draco, Sirius/Remus, Voldemort/Harry, Snape/Lily, James/Lily, Ginny/Harry, Sirius/Snape -- the list goes on. In role play I've explored storylines that include Pettigrew/Harry, Flint/Draco and Godric/Salazar, and if I didn't waste so much time staring into space, I might have written a lot more fanfiction in the last few years as I have.

Now a few months ago I discovered Bleach, which most of the people on my Flist won't know about, since our friendship comes from a Harry Potter location. Let me start by saying that I am MOST DEFINITELY NOT going to stop writing Harry Potter. Heavens, I know these characters better than my own relatives, and they still don't stop assailing me with bunnies - I just want you to know that I think I've found the fandom to draw my interest over the next few years (unless Kurosaki suddenly pops it in the next few chapters).

There are so many characters, and so many possible pairings, it's taken me all this time to get my head around which ones really appeal to me. It's growing into its own little world in my head, and just as I have decided which pairings are mine, another one suddenly surprises me. But let's compare it to the list above in what I know I thoroughly enjoy already: Gin/Aizen, Uryuu/Ichigo, Rukia/Renji, Byakuya/Renji, Byakuya/Rukia, Ichigo/Renji, Aizen/Shinji, Szayel/Uryuu, Mayuri/Uryuu, Uryuu/Nemu, Grimmjow/Ichigo, Ulquiorra/Grimmjow...damn, the list goes on, although I suspect you can tell that I quite like creepy pairings even there *coughRyuuken/Uryuucough*

So. So - what am I saying? Um...well I suppose what I'm saying is that you're going to end up seeing some stuff on here that isn't all Harry Potter. If that bothers any of you, and I really hope it doesn't, because I love the lot of you, then I won't hold it against you if you defriend me. People change, after all, and friends lists are hard enough to keep up with; I know that well enough myself, and I don't want to clutter anyone up with something they're not interested in any more.
