Day 28 - OTP With The Best Canon Story
Aeryn Sun and John Crichton - Farscape
Okay, I’ve talked about these two a couple times, but they are absolutely the best example of a romantic relationship done right in narrative. I know this because I have zero desire to read fic for them. Canon did it right to the point that I don’t need or want another story told about them. Their story was told within the framework of the show. There is not a single other pairing that I can think of that did this (barring the first entrant on this list, Whitley and Dwayne from A Different World.)
Aeryn and John’s story is beyond extraordinary. Not just because it was well written (it was), but because it was fucking daring. These two broke each other several times, and in some of the most dramatic ways possible. But they also loved. They were affectionate and vulnerable and committed. They’re both flawed people and their relationship was big and messy and hard and brilliant.

D’Argo: The bad news is that you’re married and you must endure as a statue for 80 cycles on a strange world.
John: What’s the good news?
D’Argo: Chiana and I are having fantastic sex.

SO/SO/SO/SO! What/what brings you here? Business? Pleasure? That’s a nice sword you’ve got. Ever slay any dragons with it? You should give it a name! How about - Cameron? Or Booma/Booma/Booma? First floor/first floor! Little lost girls! Have a good day.
Yes I know. This elevator sucks. My job suck/suck/sucks. Day after day the same/the same thing. Up. Down. Up. Down/down. Just once - just once it’d be nice to go - sideways… Just/just - sideways. Frog Princes!

They did not just pulled a Sleeping Beauty in Saving Hope. What the actual fuck. I know it’s a drama/soap kinda tv show but I didn’t feel that...
It looks like the universe wants me to hate Daniel Gillies face today. First his character in Saving Hope pisses me off with that creepy kiss...
So apparently consuming blood is illegal in Louisiana
How much blood did people have to...
when did we replace the word “said” with “was like”
When it occured to us that “said”...

I welled up with tears, trying my best to fight it until one tear finally streamed down my face. “I’m a guy,” I angrily...
- etta-bishop said:Do you (or your 'people') think that the TV show will translate into increased book sales? Also, question two: Since they have the rights to use bitten's cast of characters do you think they will ever expand/ want to expand into the other books? I know that might be another can of worms, lol.
There was an uptick with sales for the werewolf books, but those are 4 books out of a 25 book backlist, which means..well, not a significant change...
