I an equal opportunity shipper: If the characters and/or story seem to give any hint of possibility, I'll (probably) be all up on the pairing(s).
I like Challenges. Crack is tasty; Canon is fun.
I very much dislike bashing. I believe that if you are going to demand that your opinion be respected (and, it should be) you must also respect the opinions of others, no matter how (or how much) they differ from yours.
