Gen fics: the Underrated Awesome

Okay, so here's the thing.  Everyone apparently prefers pairing fics to gen fics.  What I don't get is why.  Because I read mostly Steve and Tony fics, and nemaline reads mostly Bruce and Tony fics.  Pairing fic always leaves something to be desired when we cross-rec.  But in long amnesia fic?  I can imply any pairing I damn well want to.  It's mostly Steve and Tony, granted, since those are the two characters I'm focusing on, but there's cuddles with Clint, hugs from Natasha, and I'm even throwing in some references to the Stark Spangled Banner ship.  Considering Bruce is the first person Tony's met in this place that he's actively liked, there's some Science Bro feels going on too.  I'm sure once I get to Thor, he'll have feels too.

Pairing fic?  Pfft.  Limiting.  I will subtext them all with cuddles and don't think I can't.  SUBTEXT ALL THE PAIRINGS.

That stated, I still haven't decided what to do with the pre-slash thing.  But that's at the end, and I'm only somewhere near the middle right now, so I'll worry about that later.  And worry about the gift exchange now.  -_-;;;  But that probably surprises no one.

Yep. It is true.

What I don't get is why.

Theory 1: Because, on the inside, everyone is a little old lady who likes to meddle in the affairs of others and be matchmakers.
Theory 2: We've been conditioned to see romance in everything.
Theory 3: Sex
Theory 4: All the above

Is Stark Spangled Banner the Tony/Steve/Bruce OT3 thing? Cause that's a clever pairing name. Why does Avengers fandom have the best pairing names?

Subtext is a beautiful thing!

Do I need to send you the Dragon Sherlock fic again?

The should realize none of the above are necessary. >.>

And yes, yes it is. XD I don't even like threesomes for the most part, but that one just amuses the hell out of me purely for the name. They just do have the best names. Don't ask me why. <3

Subtext really is. I'm having fun with cuddles.

Nah, that's all good.

You can't stop me from pairing chemicals, Mem.

H/O/H IS MY FAVORITE OT3.
Na/Cl 4LYFE.

I PAIR WHAT I WANT TO.

Wind/Leaves
You/Authorial Sadism
Cy/Yarn
Me/Bucket Hats
Nutella/Crepes

But you can have the Noble Gases, though. They don't need no chemical bonds to be happy and awesome.

laaaaaaa

I preemptively block your Brig eyebrow with EvilBrig.

*raises eyebrow*

I'm not sure authorial Sadism can be paired with anything, actually. And I'll write fic of all the noble gases. They're where the party is at anyway.

That would be effective, except I went with unimpressed Garibaldi who will just put you in the brig if you keep being silly. <3

I counter your unimpressed Garibaldi with Kosh who is enigmatic and mysterious. :P

Fine then. It can be You/Dragons.

Noble Gas fic is my favorite kind of chemical fic.

Now I counter with Brig eyebrow prowess. The Brig is not impressed with the Vorlons. He would politely ask them to get the hell out of his galaxy.

That would be kind of narcissistic of me, wouldn't it?

Noble gas fics are the best. XD

Yeah, no. I can see the Doctor standing off to the side looking flabbergasted though. It's probably when they started... hm. Well, I think that's still a spoiler, actually, so let it suffice to say they were probably Vorlons on Earth sometime during the 20th century?

I shall take your word on that.

I realized. It was just a sort of "Oh, Tony..." sort of expression you get in a lot of Avengers fics.

A sort of exasperated fondness?
