The Unpopular Opinons post was moast intriguing *fingersteeples* and seriously, I have such a slut fit for meta, you don't even want to know. I have been pondering what other things I would like you guys to talk about~ and this post's topic is PERSONAL CANON as related to pairings. I want to know what couples are right in your head (not necessarily OTP), which are wrong, and which (if any) you honestly 100% do believe are trufax.



For me, my Personal Pairing Canon started out really well developed, and recently has started to shift a lot more. I don't know if that's normal or what, but...for a long time I was very definitely in with The Pairings Of Choice, Pete/Patrick, Frank/Gerard, so on and so forth. I still love those, but lately, I've starting mixing it up a little more, I guess? I'm big into MCR/wives these days, and MCR/Wife/MCR (mmm Gerard/Lyn/Frank mmm Bob/Frank/Jamia mmmm), and I've also fairly recently developed this mad kink for Bob Bryar (thnx panda<3!) and I'm shipping Bob all over the place, with Gerard and Frank and Patrick and WOOHOO!

Couples that are WRONG IN MY BRAIN are...pretty much any Panic/MCR, part of which is probably born from my lack of interest in Panic, but. Eh, I just don't see the compatibility? I know that Ryan was a fanboy, but other than that, they don't really have a strong connection, and in this case, I really think the differences in age and lifestyle make a big barrier for me. I mean, MCR is mostly settling down and being grown-ups (big doofy dorky childlike grown-ups but still) and Panic is a bunch of college-age stoners. They really don't jibe in my head, at all.

As for trufax...there are a lot of bandom "canon" relationships that I think are awesome friendships (Pete/Mikey particularly) but the only one that has ever made me go "...you know, I think that might have actually happened" is Bert/Gerard. Maybe not boyfriends, but I think there's a strong chance of FWB, based particularly on their interactions before and the sheer venom that came after.

Your turn!

As much as I used to be allll about the Frank/Gerard, I really can't see them together fanfiction wise anymore. I know they're PRETTY and they OPENLY SHOW THEIR LOVE, but I guess I just liked them so much that I got over it? /o\

Now, I'm really into Pete/Patrick despite it being the FOB fandom's fav OTP, because to me they work really well together personality wise. Also I am Stumphsexual.

MCR wise! Mikey/Frank, and Bob/Frank, and Ray/Gerard (mostly because of Mixtape).

FOB wise other than Pete/Patrick! Pete/Joe, because they'd be so laid back together and goof off and ALMOST be like completely normal hetero friends, except they do the naughty stuff. And Patrick/Joe, because Joe would take care of Patrick and it would just go SO much easier than the Pete/Patrick, and I love van!days Joe/Patrick, with the pot sweet breath and the staying at hotels while Andy and Pete were off being more grown up~

Panic wise! IDK, I like Jon/Spencer because of the dorkiness but really, I don't read it unless it's in a fic as a side pairing.

ALSO ALSO, WHY DOES NO ONE SHARE MY LOVE OF VICKY-T/PATRICK? It chagrins me, greatly. The thing is! I really like slash, like really really. But I almost always almost RP het because I feel more comfortable that way, and I love reading well done het, too, that isn't Mary-Sueish.

COUPLES THAT ARE 'WRONG': I really don't read anything with Andy, don't like Pete paired with anyone from MCR but Mikey, and don't enjoy Panic paired outside of their band in general.

trufax: lol no one. I don't honestly believe anyone is gay for anyone in their band (can't really say otherwise), maybe save for something happening during the summer of like and stage gay/backstage shenanigans.

It's funny. When I first started reading in this fandom, I would read pretty much any band, any pairing (though I was still partial to MCR). As time has gone on, I've gotten more and more and more MCR-centric and more OTP Frank/Gerard 4EVA. Though I can get into fic involving the wives or Gerard/Bob.

Couples that are absolutely wrong to me: Frank/Mikey. That's pretty much the only one. I cannot read Frank/Mikey. I've tried. I always end up closing the tab and re-reading some [livejournal.com profile] bexless schmoop to cleanse my palate.

Is it because of the Frank-Mikey beffiness of them? Because that's how I feel about it. I can really only ship Mikey with Bob... Aw hell, I ship everyone with Bob.

That's part of it. Also, it seems like a lot of Frank/Mikey fic has to justify the Frank/Gerard stagegay with like, a past relationship between Frank and Gerard. And that just makes me sad. Or, Gerard is also in love with Frank and ends up sad and alone. And when neither of those things is going on, the beffiness gets in the way.

IDK, they're the one MCR couple I can't ever suspend my disbelief for. I'll read Waycest before I read Frank/Mikey. And that's SAYING something.

I've only read one Frank/Mikey fic. And it was so sad and everyone died and I'm pretty sure Frank killed Mikey that I just can't even read anymore. I get so sad.

lol.

Um. Yeah. Hi. Let's be happy and talk about how I'm really excited about Bob/Gerard as a pairing right now.

Hee!

I really like Bob/Gerard! It was actually the first MCR pairing that I read. I am still pretty fond.

Gerard/Frank, wives, and Gerard/Bob are my current tops :) They are awesome.

Really? Huh...I would never seek Frank/Mikey out, but I've never considered it particularly distasteful. I'm pretty much able to slash all of MCR with each other without too much trouble (they're all so gay for their BAND!)

I totally believe there was ~more to Gerard and Bert's "friendship". Seriously, that interview they did together. UST much? But that's the only pairing I believe to be straight up true. I think there might be something more, a little deeper to Frank and Gerard's relationship that isn't there in most friendships but I don't think anything will ever come of it.

I agree on the Panic/MCR thing. And three other pairings I dislike are Waycest, Frikey and Frank/Ray. All three of those give me srs motts tbh. Also: hate hate hate Pete/Gerard. It's just wrong. On all levels.

Though, I kind of dig Pete/Mikey and find myself torn between choosing between that and Pete/Patrick.

Soooo much UST XD Yeah, I agree about Frank and Gerard...I think they're definitely really close in a very particular way, but I don't believe they're together~~

Lol, I'm such a 'cester XD sry! I kind of dig Pete/Gerard too...I like the dichotomy between Pete/Mikey and Pete/Gerard, and idk, I just find Gerard to be highly shippable!

Bert and Gerard, I am 90% certain there was something other than platonic friendship there, and that feeling just keeps getting stronger the more I listen to Lies For The Liars and read and watch interviews from that time period/aftermath. It just feels like Bert was or believed himself to be in some way in love with Gerard, and either Gerard didn't feel the same way, or couldn't cope with it as he was sobering up/establishing his sobriety (relationships can go to hell right quick when you're trying to sober up, no matter how you feel about the other people and how hard you try to make things work). Or even that when Gerard was using, the drugs fucked with his sex drive, and he thought he felt the same way, and believed that there was something there, but when he sobered up and his body chemistry normalized he found that his body didn't react to Bert as a sexual partner. I'm basing this last theory off of a friend's experience; he's bisexual, was using heavily when he became friends with someone, fell in love emotionally, but he was so fucked up from the drugs he basically couldn't get aroused, and when he got clean he found that, while his feelings were the same, and he found his partner aesthetically attractive, he wasn't actually attracted to him in a sexual way.

Yeah, I might just be underestimating the wrath of a man scorned? But it seems kind of odd that you would give copious vicious interviews about/admittedly write ANGRY ANGRY songs about/make really distasteful and hateful videos about a tour friend you don't get along with anymore. Poor Bert and Gerard :( Their love is tragic and smelly :(

I totally meant pubic lice.

I just find the idea of Gerard noticing that Bert scratches himself a lot, but thinking nothing of it, until the day he starts itching can't stop squirming and scratches himself raw during a sober-ish moment, really funny. But he's still not actually clean and sober yet, so he isn't at his best, and totally calls for one of his guys to come over, holding his fly open, kind of trying to peer down into the depths of his pants in the crotch area, asking them to examine him to see what's going on. Mikey actually looks repulsed and tries to leave, and the other guys just look weirded out. He just wants to know why he's so fucking itchy! He'd do it for any of them!

OH PAIRINGS. I AM PICKY.

Anything involving Spencer, unless it's Spencer/Jon on the side I will not read. Especially not Spencer/Ryan. They are besties, okay, not lovers.

Anything involving Ray makes me uncomfortable. I love him, but I DO NOT WANT TO READ ABOUT HIM HAVING SEX.

Mikey/Pete, Mikey/Frank, Mikey/Ryan, Mikey/Bob- Mikeyway is my weakness. I will read him with almost anyone [thought Pete and Frank are my favorites].

Frank/Gerard I like only if it's done well, mainly because there's so much sucky fic with them together. I once read a Gerard/Bob that was good, but that was the exception.

Umm. Oh, yeah. Ryan/Brendon. Guuuh. So cute, boys, so cute.
The only person I can imagine either of them being with is Mikeway. Mikeywayyyy.

Andy/anyone is difficult for me to stomach. I've only read one Joe pairing [Joe/Jon] and it was good, so I'm holding out my opinion on that. Pete/Patrick is good, but only sometimes. It's kinda like Frank/Gerard to me.

And anyone/wives or past girlfriends = ♥
Alicia and Lindsey and Audrey especially.

IA with Ray :| He is a great dude but...yeahh, nothnx.

Mikey is very good for shipping, I agree.

I loooove Gerard/Bob XD It's a fairly new trend in my fannish activities, but they're actually very good, depending on where you look, I think.

I'm still totally on the Frank/Gerard bandwagon and hope to never ever fall off. It feels right and clicks in a way I rarely feel about pairings. I also quite like Mikey/Pete, even though I don't listen to FOB and know almost everything I do know about them through bandom and the people in bandom edumacating me.

I agree that Panic/MCR just doesn't really jibe. I've also never been a Waycest person, but incest just has never been my thing anyway. I don't begrudge people who like it--just not my kink. And there are certain cross-band pairings I just can't see. I have trouble pairing Gee with anyone outside the band aside from maybe Bert, and only in a weird, drunken, slightly abusive and unhealthy way, because that's definitely the vibe I always get watching them do interviews, especially through the lens of a few years past. Plus, okay, I kind of just hate Bert, but that's my own thing.

I do, however, love Ray/Bob. It's a slightly less of an OTP for me than Frerard, but it still feels so right. I can pair Mikey with almost anyone, for whatever reason. Same with Bob.

Frank/Gerard is my OTP of ever, definitely! I've just recently started to be able to read fics where they're not paired without having a sneaking suspicious something is wrong (although if they're not beffies at least, I make D: faces!)

I have a fondness for Gerard/Pete and Gerard/Patrick for...mostly unknown reasons, I just like them! XD

I don't like Ray/Bob much, but that's because I don't like Ray much :\ Bob is eminently pairable though, I definitely agree

I CONCUR. Yeah, I do read other stuff, I see what you're saying. I'm not a big fan of wife-fic, but I've got no problem with it either. And yeah, it's still a little hard for me to pair them with anyone else. XD

It is pretty cute. I honestly don't think I've ever read a fic with either pairing--maybe that's it.

GASP. WHAT. I love Ray too, too much. His dorky hair, his thighs, his shrillness. And yeah, Bob is the king. He's too much of a badass to be limited to one pairing. He goes out and conquers.

Lol. Concurs--conquers. Brain, what.
