hunting season  
I'm now officially a multi-shipper.

Fandom: CSI, Original Gangsta Version. Pairings SO FAR -- keep in mind I've only seen half of seasons 1 and 2 to date:

1) Catherine/Grissom. It is like Crusher/Picard, but with more pole-dancing! (He's a socially awkward academic who knows everything about everything, she's a single mom with more than a little snark in her, and they've got a possibly-angsty as-yet-undetermined past...)

2) Sara/Grissom. Geek mating rituals, omg!

3) Sara/Nicky. The cuteness kills me dead in totally unexplained ways!

Ritual stoning may now commence.

If you can help me as to figuring out how to get DVDs into .avi format or similar for internet uploads, I can upload up to the end of season 3 for you, I have them on DVD. I used to be a Catherine/Grissom 'shipper. Sara/Grissom mostly. I jumped 'ship at the end of season 5 because I got bored waiting. :P

Other pairings, Catherine/Warrick, Nick/Greg, Catherine/Sofia, Brass/Sofia.

I wish I knew how to do that!! No clue. I guess I'll just have to wait and watch them on TV... which is fine, since I don't have a lot of time. I found the seasons for sale at costco for $35!! But I still have no time. Arg.

I have much love for Catherine and Grissom, but in a way where they don't ever actually have to get together. It's like I 'ship their current friendship or something. :) Not that I would be opposed to the wild sexing or anything, but you know what I mean.

I have only seen hints of Sara/Grissom so far and haven't quite figured it out yet, but it is so adorable on screen!

I think I'd only support Nick/Greg if they'd occasionally take me in as a third party. ;)

Aren't they?

I wore the bracelet you gave me yesterday and thought of you! I actually wear it quite often, whenever I'm in a gold jewelry themed outfit instead of a silver one. :)

Yay! I love CSI! Glad you've found it!!!

And I love both Grissom/Sara and Catherine/Grissom...as well as Catherine/Warrick and Sara/Nicky....

*clings to you*

YAY!!! I'm so glad it's possible to like both of those pairings at the same time and that I'm not aloooone.

I've so far not developed any love for Catherine/Warrick, though in one of the other-season episodes I caught in repeats it seemed like they were An Item. So, who knows? :)

I am currently in crazed-addiction phase where CSI is concerned because they started from the beginning on Spike! Gira and I have decided that we can't watch it before bed anymore, though.
A.j.: procrastinateaj on July 21st, 2006 11:14 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry! I can't ship Sara with anyone because... well... Ikindawanttoslaphermostofthetime.

That being said, Brass is THE BOMB.
Little Red: b5 - talia pretty lie - thatfangirlmylittleredgirl on July 21st, 2006 11:23 pm (UTC)
Oh my God, I want to slap Sara CONSTANTLY. But then there was an odd moment when I didn't, and I went, "Yeah, okay." Nicky wants her in season one and he's NICKY and he should get whatever he wants. :)

I HEART BRASS. Except in the pilot episode when he's all bizarrely evil and scares the heck out of me.

CSI Original is group orgy of yayness! Everyone fits together in odd 'shippy ways. LOVE IT.
Little Red: lc - naughty idea - _toiletseatgirlmylittleredgirl on July 22nd, 2006 12:15 am (UTC)
HEE!! *delighted by the way you phrased that*

I know! It's like my 'shippy li'l brain can't decide where to go first!

Sadly, most of the fic I've encountered on the internet is of the flailing teen-angst "omg he TALKED TO ANOTHER GIRL!" variety or the equally flailing "I tripped and now I'm PREGNANT!" sort. (And yes, I am inspired to write my own fic... sadly, it's not actually that much better than those previously mentioned! Oy. I don't yet have a finger on the characters, it seems.)

Ah, CSI, the multi-shippers paradise. (that and GA.) My OTP canges with whatever fic I've been reading lately. But I guess it's not an OTP then, is it ^^;.
Little Red: fridge magnets otp - josephidesmylittleredgirl on July 22nd, 2006 12:23 am (UTC)
OTP does not mean quite what it used to. ;)

And I promise you with CSI it ONLY GETS WORSE.



Is it wrong of me to feel like Warrick is sort of a temple of hotness all by himself and so throwing other people into the mix is just... bringing down the average hotness of the situation? ;) Actually, that's just an excuse for me not having found a 'ship for him yet.

And Catherine and Grissom! I LOVE pairings that make me squeee as-is, without my needing to extrapolate. I love that she gets him (though I'm not entirely sure that he realizes that) and that he trusts her (as much as he trusts anyone, which isn't... well, isn't that much, really). So, I don't really want them to go all "omg I am JEALOUS AND I LOVE YOU MAKE BABIES OMG!" (for real: NO) but I also like that they're so important in each other's lives, and think any relationship they form with other people would have to let them still be friends.

Now, granted they might surprise me and it would rock massively but it's like building the perfect sandcastle. you don't wanna *breathe* on it :-p

I hate how much that sounded like a challenge. ;) However, I hate MORE that I'm coming on board the fandom so late that I really can't write it without being horribly ashamed, since I don't have the proper pulse on the characters and have no idea where they're going to go. Alas! Challenge must go unanswered, I suppose.

I do think it could rock massively... but it'd probably be different than any other relationship ever. *shrugs* I haven't figured it out yet.

Me, I'm just trying to choose whether I want Nicky or Liam the Lab Tech Greg to be my TV boyfriend. :)

And dude, the slashiness must be amaaaazing. Who's the fandom-ordained slash OTP? Nicky/Warrick?

Jumping around randomly more (I'm commenting as I'm falling asleep, wheee), I notice that Warrick/Sara is one of your picks... it's funny, because in watching season 1, I was commenting how it's a choose-your-own-'ship paradise, but Sara/Warrick was the one that I really couldn't see. I will watch more closely!!

*contemplates mix-and-match new-fandom project of having to write a scene for every possible pairing...*

Yay, someone to share my CSI-love with!!

I'm still working through the fifth season (I'm going slowly in wait for season 6 dvds).

While I mostly want to slap Sara as well, there are a few moments when I can actually and like Grissom/Sara, but mostly I'm a Grissom/Catherine fan. *points to icon and um, LJ layout*
Little Red: xf - diana slut - liminallizmylittleredgirl on July 22nd, 2006 06:46 am (UTC)
Yay! We can share geeky love, omg! I am way behind where you are, though. I love first seasons of things. :)

And it was your layout that got me back into CSI in the first place, bitch! *loves you forever*

And the question -- have you written fic? *bats eyelashes*

Stef: SG1 S/J Ship - base by crystaldesirestef94 on July 22nd, 2006 08:27 am (UTC)
I'm so with you on 1 and 3.
Sara/Grissom has always felt way too incestuous ;-)
As for Sara, I'm with the slapping crowd. She just has this snotty air about her that makes me want to slap her every time I see her.

Catherine/Grissom is just... so damn perfect the way they are *sniffs*
The angst, omg THE ANGST ;-)
Although in the "Will they, Won't they" thing, I have my money on "They Won't" and somehow I'm perfectly fine with that :-)
And I like the comparison you make to Picard and Crusher.

In later seasons I must admit I've also started to lean towards Catherine/Warwick. OMG, the pretty!!
I know Warwick/Me is no option, however much I may want it *g* but I'll =gladly= settle for Catherine/Warwick ;-)
Little Red: trek - pc big goodbye - viresse_iconsmylittleredgirl on July 22nd, 2006 09:41 pm (UTC)
I totally wanted to slap Sara constantly until I started watching the early seasons... and she's so fabulously interesting! I mean, she's obnoxious with her snottiness and superiority and such, but I'm fascinated by her. I'm not sure how she'd fit into a relationship yet, though (since she, er, doesn't really seem to have them...)

Is there delightful Catherine/Grissom angst??? Really? Tell me tell me!

Multishipping is the only way to be. It's more fun.

And how are you anyway? What's been happening?
Little Redmylittleredgirl on July 23rd, 2006 12:11 am (UTC)
Multishipping seems to be much less scary than OTP-shipping!

I'm doing okay. :) On the one hand, I'm all "arg! Things are completely and totally rocking and I'm still teetering on the brink of debilitating depression, wtf!" but on the other hand... things are completely and totally rocking! Work hit some rough patches but I seem to be back in everyone's good graces (I'm putting in a bunch of overtime hours which helps!), I love my new car and new apartment still, and feel like things are easier than they have been in a very long time (with a few exceptions, but hey! Those are always there). So yes! Things are going really well.

What about you? Are you doing okay? :)
littlespike87 on August 10th, 2006 03:32 pm (UTC)
Snickers all the way...Nicky and Sara all the way

I don't mind Grissom/Sara...but its just the age and its okay

I'm a Warrick/Katherine...when I first came into the show just before the 5th eppy...I thought that it was Grissom/Katherine that was big...

Alteast I keep Snickers from before the show and I'm a HUGE mult-shipper too

2) Sara/Grissom. Geek mating rituals, omg!

Yesyesyes. For so many reasons, yes. I've tried to lure you to G/S before, I'm sure, but I've done that to so many people I get confused.

I must warn you, whatever ship you decide on, do not venture far into the fandom, and if you must, stick to LJ, for your sanity.
