Sorry for not commenting on the fic, but I just wanted to say that your icon is win. It seems with the new film getting me back into the old TV Series I might just be developing a new non-existent OTP in the form of Jack McGee/David Banner. Le sigh. What is it with me and stuff that no one has written?
I would think that McGee/Banner wouldn't be too hard to find. There's a huge following of television Hulk people on fanfiction.net. Bigger than any other incarnations.
But yeah, A) I've gotten back into the TV Series (Ah, much love for Lou Ferigno) and B) Don't worry. I've got OTPs that there aren't even fanfics about the canon material, let alone my couple. I know the pain and suffering well.
PS in reference to your Icon:
4th doctor + Leela, where's the love fandom?
Ah, the pit of voles... I kinda poked that when I was testing the waters in Supernatural fandom... and then I got scared and ran away. Then again, there seems to be hardly any Hulk action on LJ, and even less for the TV Series - what's up with that? I mean, I wasn't expecting there to be followings to equal the Who community, but there's a lot of classic SF TV love out there - why no Hulk?
As for Four/Leela, at least they actually met in canon - Caroline John and Peter Davison only met in PROBE, by which point he was beginning to lose his hair :o( (not that I don't still love him, but where is my Fifth Dcotor/Liz Shaw love? - they would have been awesome together!)
(And let's just not mention the Five/Android!Five/Duplicate!Five/Kamelion!Five/Omega!Five OT5 - or FivebyFive, as I like to think of it. (C'Mon, the canon was asking for it with all those lookalikes running around with the pretty blond hair...).)
Ah well, at least TimeCrash got Five/Ten a little surge of love.
I stay away from the crazy fandoms, (for the most part) so the Pit of Voles isn't THAT bad, and they do have at least 26 Hulk stories, which is better than the rest of the net. Sadly it seems like the only reason a lot of people watched Hulk was for the Tony Stark cameo. Not that I didn't smile, but they kind of push him off to the side. *le sigh* I've been a hulk fan for a while and we always seem to get ignored.
They met in canon, but still I've never seen ONE Leela/four story unless it was "Leela's uncooth so she screws everyone" or "The doctor is actually having sex with ALL his companions so I guess Leela's in there too." Which makes me sad.
I can sympathize though. It seems like if it's not Rose, Romana II, or Sarah it's the doctor with himself. (Which is just a little creepy because I can't figure out if they should be warning for incest or masturbation and then I start wondering if it would still count as an orgy even if it were only two incarnations...and then my brain starts to hurt.)
Hell I'd even take Charlie from the audio dramas, but no one seems to even listen to those. *fangirly tear*
I dunno. All my fandoms seem to be small and unloved, or if they're popular no one likes my couple and so whenever I try to post they ignore me, and if I want to read some? Psh, then I'm really just SOL.
Nooooo, LJ ate my comment.
The people I know who've seen the Hulk haven't even mentioned the Tony Stark cameo. I mean, yeah, it's cool, because it means both more Hulk and more Iron Man, but I guess I hang out in crowds that like the Hulk. That said, their not the sort of crowds who are likely to write the fic for me. I think it's a case of 'give it time'? The film only just came out.
As for Doctor/Doctor... I must admit, I like me some of that. In fact, I wasn't interested in slash or fanfiction at all until I conceived of a desire for Doctor/Doctor - sorry! Although in my experience this is few and far between (???) and where it does exist I've probably already seen it on timeslipping
General concensus seems to be that it's narcisism ;-p
The only Five/Liz Shaw I've seen ever was in the comments to something when I was bemoaning it's non-existence and some kind soul took pitty, alas. I'm surprised there isn't more Four/Leela. Leela's costume always seemed to be rather designed for exciting the imagination.
Ah, to have a penchant for rare pairings...
Maybe that's it. I guess I'm bitter because A) I belong to a lot of Iron Man communities and see endless comments of "I saw the Hulk and you should to because OMG*Squee* Tony Stark!" Which only annoys me because I adored the Hulk for the Hulk.
And B)I guess I'm getting too used to rare pairings and fandoms and so I'm turning cynical.
Ah, nothing wrong with Doctor/Doctor, and I could see it. The Doctor, in all his incarnations, has seemed awfully narcissistic, I just start focusing on weird little things and getting too hooked up on that too appreciate it. I spend all my time wondering things like "Now, would the Newer doctor remember what this felt like since he'd been the older doctor before too?"
I know! I always thought the same too, but she did, (sadly) canonically end up with someone else and so at best we get three-somes, which just don't do it for me.
