Damn you plot nubbins... *shakes fist*  
So I'm spending my last day off work (sob!) writing some Sanctuary fic which linesfade  and I kind of inadvertently challenged ourselves to. It's one of those fic writing sessions where I'm writing bits and piece all over the place because I keep getting ideas in non-chronological order.

Anyway, all is going well until I suddenly have an idea for the end (based upon Helen's throw away remark in Next Tuesday), so I scramble to write it down an what bloody happens? An idea for a sequel pops into my head. Lots of ideas for it. So many in fact that I have to go and start writing them down (traumatised!Helen, Nikola worried but not sure what to do because being comforting isn't his style...).

This leaves me with two questions:

1 - Why am I writing three fics simultaneously? How can this possibly be a good idea?

2 - Will I ever decide if I'm going to ship Helen/Watson or Helen/Nikola - because, seriously, starting to make her look like a bit of a floozy here...

lol, I definitely like the sound of some Helen/Nikola fics :D I've been having plotbunnies for those lately...

Well the one I wrote for the secret santa with them ended up slightly more shippy than I intended.

It's all Amanda's fault for getting all squee filled when an interview asked her about Tesla, saying that Helen loves and adores him even if he drives her nuts :D

As hot as they are individually, it would be, in my head, kind of like shagging her son.

I need to get over that hurdle first before I go anywhere near them as a pairing. :D

I feel odd about Helen/Watson. He's too much like her best friend. Or her brother. They're buddies, but I can't see them fucking. (I could totally believe Watson as bi or gay too)

Helen/Tesla is hot, but I don't see the potential for more than fuck buddies. He's too self-centred. She's too self-centred. They'd be hot...but, that would be it.

I think Will's going to grow into her. He started out a puppy, but he REALLY respects her, and I think that's one of the things that drew Helen to John. John in the past was very respectful of her intellect and her accomplishments.

I also kinda think Helen needs a 'wife' and Will's that for me. He's getting so much better at standing up to her, Eulogy, Next Tuesday...

See, Helen/Watson I can see as a sort of comfort fling but not a long term romance - their friendship is too ingrained for that. They're incredibly comfortable with each other though. There'd be no awkwardness after.

Helen/Tesla - I maintain that she has a massive crush on him but will not admit it because she couldn't stand his ego if she did. He cares for her more than he's willing to admit and it's easier just to pretend it's entirely sexual. A hot shag, but she'd need to do a lot of work on him before she could consider him more (although his de-vamping may be a start for that).

I see Will as her son/friend/pupil and whether I could ever see them crossing that boundary, I'm not sure. I think she might need him too much in other ways to consider risking it. Although, you're right, he would so be the 'wife' in that situation (and oddly enough, Morgana's told Will at least half a dozen times that he'd make somebody a wonderful wife someday - must definitely be in the character!).

Why choose? Multishipping is far more fun. Then you squee, no matter where canon goes. And you have more fics to read and write, because the character interactions are each interesting, and different.

Oh, it's not a matter of wanting to choose it's a matter of giving Helen a bad rep by jumping from one bloke to another - I don't want to inadvertently besmirch her reputation! :D

No! I would never kill Watson because I love him too much (and Morgana would kill me!). *smushes him*

Thing is, I don't normally multi-ship. I'm more usually and OTP kind of girl but something about this show...

You're just going to go along with all those plot-nubbins demands... Or they'll eat you.

And if you were Magnus, with all that eye candy around, wouldn't you be a floozy too?

She is indeed a woman of great restraint.

Let's just hope that if we ever do see Griffin he isn't at all attractive - otherwise it'll only add more confusion :D
tiwtintiwtin on January 3rd, 2010 09:55 pm (UTC)
Lol. My first thought to your Griffin comment was: Well, even if he's a minger he could just go invisible, couldn't he?
I need help.
