I was answering a question over on the HP/LV thread at FAP and had a bit more to say than what I decided to post in that thread. The question was: When did you start shipping Voldemort (Tom) and Harry?, and I was trying to introduce my entire HP history in answer, which would have been a bit off-topic for the thread because it totally involves more pairings than HP/LV.
Well, maybe not all of it, but more than was necessary to answer the question over there.

Strangely enough I came into fanfic not really ship-decided - I.E. Probably only Viktor/Hermione seemed awesome to me. However, I had read a couple fics before even watching the first movie. Finally, after seeing the entire first movie (took me three tries), I started thinking about reading the source material (I.E. the books), but even then I think I saw the second movie before reading my first book.

Anyway, after reading the first four books I came away liking Harry/Parvati, Viktor/Hermione, and Neville/Ginny (though I didn't hold anything against Harry/Hermione or Ron/Hermione at that point, I just like the above better than H/Hm and R/Hm.)

However, I quickly discovered there was very little fanfic for the pairings I walked away really liking.
PS - When it came to the movies, I really liked Harry/Hermione/Ron, but again there was very little fanfic. To be honest, the lack of threesome fic on this one was a real shock to me. To have that much subtext to work with for a threesome coupling in any other fandom would mean that threesome would have dominated! Or at least been as large as the plain ol' twosome couplings.

So, when I first started looking for fanfic, I quickly discovered Harry/Hermione and Harry/Draco fics were more to my tastes than Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione. Yes, I was one of those people that liked Draco. Though unlike others, I had given up on Draco long before Book Six - Rowling successfully mislead me about Draco. Probably why I can't take the IoD at face value. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!
Of course, she could be counting on the fact that she's successfully mislead almost everyone about Draco to have felt completely free to speak the truth in the IoD knowing that people would read between the lines and she could still mislead even when telling the truth! *head spins* Or maybe I'm too paranoid!

Anyway, even then I realized that (for me) slashing Harry made more sense, because upon reflection Harry was more gay than straight, to me. But I hung on to several het pairings, because I liked them and because I suspected Rowling wouldn't do Harry slash. But mostly just because I liked them. And for the record, I neither liked nor disliked Harry/Cho. It was certainly well-done, better than even Harry/Parvati - so I didn't hate H/C, but just didn't love it either.

Moving on:

Within a year (maybe more maybe less) Harry and Draco fics lost their shine for me. So many fics (while good) all played with the same theme - Harry and Draco get together, Draco becomes a good guy. Or Draco becomes a good guy and then Harry and Draco get together. There's only so many times I can read the same themes (especially if I'm not in love with them) without wanting to find something different.

Anyway, fine - H/D is the good ship, but I started to realize around that time what had originally drew me to H/D was not the boys themselves, but the thought that this pairing would explore DarkHarry, and sadly they did not, or rarely ever did this pairing go that way.
Now I can love H/D for what it is, because I have other sources for DarkHarry, but at the time I thought Harry/Draco would be my dark pairing.

And I kinda understand why fans ended up writing H/D the way they did. Rowling's hints that there was nothing more to Draco than what you saw on the surface probably made those who thought there was react extremely. So, you end up with light Draco, because there were people who always believed Draco was much more than surface. But at the time I wasn't thinking about that, I was just miffed because H/D seemed to always mean light Draco.

At the point I stopped really loving H/D, I tried, and failed to get into Harry/Snape, because I thought Snarry might play with Harry's dark side, and it does tend to more than Harry/Draco, but I realized (at that time) I just could not see the Harry/Snape pairing as a thing that would work in any way other than rape. I like it now, don't even mind fluffy Snape, well, okay, maybe a little. But HP/SS doesn't have me slamming the back-button just because of the pairing anymore.

This was (finally) when I stumbled upon a good Harry/Lucius/Voldemort fanfic, and I was hooked. On the threesome itself and the Harry/Lucius and Harry/Voldemort fics. Though at that time H/L was easier to find. So, until Book Six I liked Harry/Lucius and Harry/Voldemort equally, but Book Six (and Harry's thoughts) nudged H/V out in front of the pack. However, even then there were moments when I'd think about how much Harry seemed to dig Riddle back in Book Two, and I'd go on a Harry/Voldemort kick, but neither pairing jumped out in front until Book Six. In a way, poor Lucius never stood a chance staying in front with him being locked away and all, but I admit I was suprised at how much Harry/Voldemort jumped for me with Book Six.

Of course, that is brief - I could go on about how I've come to like Hermione/Draco (until very recently, I really disliked it), or how I decided Harry/Luna would be good for Harry, or how I fell completely out of love with Ron/Hermione (Book Six) and have turned more rabid about Viktor/Hermione because of that. But I think I'll stop there for now.

PS - I haven't reviewed or commented on the lastest Blood Ties episode because I don't really have much to say. Not bad, but again not dazzling. Plus, I've decided they've made Vicki too blind. Seriously, in just a short time (realistically) she should be completely blind, but I can't see them doing that. *chants about suspicion of disbelief* Otherwise, I've reverted back to a wait and see 'tude for this show.
PPS - The message board didn't take off. It is still open, but I'm not checking it daily, because I think it is dead in the water.
I'm glad you posted this because your shipping history is similar in some respects to mine.

Sirius/Remus and Ginny/Tom were my first ships, so I had no problem with Dark pairings, or with slash. I, too, was surprised there were so few H/H/R fics. I used to ship H/H, but gravitated to Hermione/Vitor, because I just can't accept Harry as straight.

I got into Harry/Tom through fanfic, and Harry/Voldemort through the ship at FAP. Over time, Harry/Voldemort just became so full of possibilities for plot and character development that it's become my OTP.

I avoided Harry/Draco like the plague for awhile, because so many fics were based solely upon how pretty they look together. Face it, Harry/Blaise is prettier, and shipping Harry with any Slytherin requires the author put some work into getting them together! Anyway, I've since encountered H/D fics that are well written, and it's a nice break from the darkness of Harry/Tom-LV.

I still have difficulty shipping Snape with anyone, but I'm finding Lucius pairings more enjoyable. I sort of wonder: if I stay in this fandom long enough, will I eventually ship everyone? OBHPO - One Big HP Orgy!XD

I hope you don't mind me friending you. I didn't know that you shipped H/V, and I appreciate you keeping that pair alive in the ship discussion, along with Anaria and Amys Dark Rose. BTW, I highly recommend the H/V fic Amys Dark Rose wrote, Bonfire Whispers.

Well, in defense of the lack of Harry/Blaise - until Book Six we weren't even sure Blaise was male. Now I personally always thought Blaise was a he - so much so that I read very few fics that had a female Blaise. However, it was really hard to debate those who thought Blaise was a she, because there just wasn't enough evidence to prove male or female.

We (the fans) also had no idea what Blaise looked like, but I do wonder if H/B would have been a bigger pairing if we'd gotten to know Blaise sooner, because I did see a fair number of H/B before we really knew anything about Blaise. Strange, because I saw more before we knew Blaise than I have since Book Six.

*chuckles* OBHPO - I like that. Really, at the moment there are only a few pairings that I really can't get into. Harry/Ginny, Ron/Luna... Actually, I guess it would be easier to say the only Ginny pairings I really like are Tom/Ginny and Neville/Ginny, and the only Luna pairings I really like are Harry/Luna and Hermione/Luna.
Even though I no longer like canon Ron/Hermione, I can still tolerate R/Hm as a fanon pairing, because most times fanon does it better than canon did. Though I do wish Viktor/Hermione would catch on. ;) So, I guess I'm almost there with the big giant HP orgy.

And, I love it when people friend me. I should probably friend more people myself. I do go on "friending sprees" every so often, but now that winter is giving way to spring I know that I won't be online as much.
At least until spring gives way to the extreme heat of summer. Then I try to stay in more, because I don't like the extreme heat anymore than I do the real cold.

Thanks for the rec, since we have similar tastes, I'm sure I'll love it.
*friends back*

PS - There is another dark(evil)Harry one over at AFF.net called A New Darkness, but for some reason that one hasn't made it to my official rec lists, so I don't have a link handy.
Wow! This is going to keep me busy for a while! I had no idea there were so many! Thanks!
You're welcome.

Honestly, there are many more DarkHarry fics out there, and probably some of them are good. I admit recently I haven't been reading (and therefore reccing) fanfic like I used too.

To be honest, there were a couple DHfanfics that are on my "rec list" but left off the list I posted for you, because they only have one or two chapters and I no longer believe the stories will be finished.
Plus sometimes with only a couple chapters it is hard to tell if the story will be good all the way through.
PS - You remember that story I mentioned that was Harry and Draco and Harry was turned on by explosions? Well, the story is:

Forsaken by ShivaniBlue
Rated PG-13 (complete) slash
Summary: Wherein Dumbledore does the unforgivable, and is forsaken by his pawn.
Chapters 30

After I composed this list I went back and started rereading some of the stories, and while I haven't finished my reread, I am 97.9% certain this is the story with that scene. ;)
Now the excitement of the weekend is over - and the new thread is up! - I can really immerse myself in these fics.

By the way, have you any interest at all in becoming Captain of the S.S. Sssssss next thread? I mentioned your name to Jenn, and Steph mentioned your name at the ship. It takes some html ability, which you appear to have, creativity, diplomacy, and naturally, the interest and the ability to keep the ship sailing. Think about it - you have time.


I'm flattered, all around actually.

Yeah, I think I'm interested.

Though I'm certain I would not be as good as previous Captains. Because I don't know how good I'd be on the creative front or at keeping the ship sailing through the slower times, but yeah I think I'm willing to give it a try.
So far, I'd say that your humility is a good sign! I'm willing to stay on to assist, if you like. If not, I'll be available for advice and back-up. I think I'll enjoy working with you.

I've started on the ship LJ page, as it's been a goal for some while to reduce the amount of coding on the thread opener. If you've any suggestions on what to keep and what to move to the LJ, let me know. In the meantime, tell me what you need me to pass along in the way of information, and feel free to post questions.
