Day 18: Minor Het Pairings Day - Lilah Month -- It's a Party Up in Here

About Day 18: Minor Het Pairings Day

Previous Entry Day 18: Minor Het Pairings Day Jun. 17th, 2004 @ 10:11 pm Next Entry
So okay, this is a little different than the "normal" ship days, in which rather than just pimping and writing and discussing...we try to rabble rouse for het pairings that you think should be seeing more love/interest in Lilah fandom and just don't get play.

For example, the big one for me at this point, het-wise? Lilah/Gunn. Not because I'm seeing the Big Eternal Love; however, I think they've got things they need to say to each other, and I would love to see Lilah and Gunn in a diner somewhere, just talking about the ways played out, possibly snarking on Big Tragic Love, Angel, and Chuck Austen's run on X-Men.

Meanwhile, just by the reaction the one Lilah/Giles I ever did got? Seems that some people would like to see the lady lawyer with the other Brit watcher.

How about you? What interests you and just isn't being written?

Dude, I would love to see some Lilah/Gunn. For me, it's all about "What the fuck does he see in you?" kinda rivalry.

That, or, y'know, fifth-season lawyer sex. Lilah being all "Yeah, they put that big brain into your tiny little head, but some of us had to work for it" and Gunn just shrugging and saying "Do you want to do this, or are you just gonna snark all day?"

Well, I think at this point, they'd both be like, "Wow. Wesley's ten kinds of batshit crazy, isn't he?" I mean, they need to have the big fight of, "you're evil!" "you're an idiot!" "Chuck Austen was the worst thing to ever happen to X-Men." "You're not wrong. I mean, seriously, does anyone care about the fans anymore?" "You care about fans?" "I...am not uncaring. Wesley is ten kinds of crazy!" "Yo, wanna see the scar?" "Ouch. I win." "Dude, he beheaded you to keep you from rising. That's love." "Oh, I thought love was asking the thing that ate your girlfriend to pretend to be your girlfriend in a slightly...necrophiliac freak-out twist...as you die in her arms!" "Hey, did I not say English was crazy?" "Bastard. Hey, I'm really bored." "I'm not going to fuck you because you're bored!" "Oh, come ON. Or do you think I'm a bad lay?" "Lady, you're many things, including possibly the actual Anti-Christ. But I have eyes, don't I? Have I ever said I didn't get why Wesley fucked you?" "Thank you. That's intensely flattering." "Of course, I hope he was wearing protection, cuz you're kind of a ho." "Ooh, look, it's Charles Gunn's last chance at mind-blowing sex...and it's fading away..."

Sekrit underrated pairing that should be!

OMG I love it. I also think there'd be a whole thing of her ripping him for how much in love he and Wes were at some point.

Lilah/Jonathan. Seriously, in an AU where the spell was never broken in Superstar? Hot diggity. With W&H as his agents (because they can keep that triangle-head demon safely locked away) and Lilah moved from special projects to be Mr. Levinson's personal lawyer. And she'd be in charge of stuff like sending C&Ds to the websites with the Jonathan/Dominic Monaghan RPS that had been everywhere since Jonathan starred in Lord of the Rings (as Frodo *and* Gandalf).

And eventually Jonathan would be running for President and Lilah would figure out that he was a geeky kid who'd worked this spell, which by now he's probably got Cyrus Vail or somebody to make unbreakable, and she's got a ton of blackmail material. Enter First Lady Lilah Morgan-Levinson.

Or Holden Webster. Vampire Holden as Lilah's therapist, cheerfully flouting doctor/patient sexual harassment laws. They'd have so much fun being evil together.

How many merry bushels of cash and puppies must I float your way to get that Lilah/Jonathan fic? Even in ficlet form? Because...dude, don't be a tease is all I'm sayin'. Get my hopes all up like that... *follow's L's lead and bats eyelashes too*

Lilah and Giles definitely. Too hot, grown-up, complicated people who understand the game they're playing and can be totally honest with each other - oh yes, that would rock. Add in the Wesley and Ethan (or Jenny) angst and oooh, I like.

This may be weird, but I love Holtz (this is totally about that voice) and would be interested in he and Lilah having some interaction. I think it's a hard scenario to come up with (at least for non-writer me), but Lilah and Holtz would have hot angry hating-Angel sex. It would never be fluffy and fun, but angry and bitter and hot.

As for Lilah and Gunn I don't get why it's not written. They are both so hot, so snarky and so fun that it would be smoking. The mocking of Fred+Wes=TL4Eternity!!1! and Angel's hair would be worth the price of admission even without the no-doubt great sex.

Mm, just have to echo the Holtz love. That voice... And yeah, lots of potential for twisted action with Lilah.

At End of Days, this big Angel con in the UK last year, Keith Szjarabaika (or how-fucking-ever you spell his last name) and Stephanie Romanov were there, and Stephanie flat-out asked Keith "Do you think Lilah and Holtz ever got it on in Hell?"

I will write that, damnit. I will. Eventually. But, yes.

Lilah/Caleb, she'd run rings round him.

Lilah/Xander, circa fabulous ladies nightclub, the Angel snark adds value, but I think it could work without it. Also post-S4/S7 I think there's room for a lot of similarity between the characters, both starting to feel disillusioned with the lives they've chosen.

and now, Lilah/Gunn, omgtheirluvissosarcastic

Lilah and the tap dancing guy from OMWF - he doesn't get nearly enough play.

Hey. I doubt anyone's looking for this pairing, but since it's "Minor Het Pairings Day", I wanted to pop in and let you know that I wrote *cringe* Warren/Lilah.

Pro Bono: Warren goes to work for Wolfram and Hart and finds a new obsession.

I've been looking for it- it was actually one of the first minor pairings I thought of. *rubs hands together gleefully and runs off to read*

Ooooh, nice and deliciously bitchy. Good job.

And, currently, although I know it is the lamest joke in the world, your icon is making me giggle way too much.

Why is this not on Notorious, BTW? Because it is shiny and very, very in-character for both and just plain COOL.

Lilah/Connor. I have a sick fascination with it, and there's that statement about being Mrs. Robinson Lilah made, and Connor's thing for older women. And it would piss Angel off soooo much!

Have you read soundingsea's fic, Perchance to Dream? It's more implied Lilah/Connor, but it's definitely got the sexy older woman thing going.

Because I had no idea what that was (and still don't)? :)

If it's a fic archive, I'm kinda eh about archiving off my site, but please feel free to link. I have a couple of Lilah-heavy fics.

Notorious is definitely an archive. See? 419 stories and rising. You can do offsite links, that works. I just don't know what the "couple" of Lilah fics are, so share.

Lilah/Oz. Seriously. Cause's he's so laconic, and she never shuts up. And with their height difference, his eyes would come right up to her...well, you get the idea.

Plus I would love to see Lilah dress up as Willow. She just looks so hot in the geeker girl costumes.

I would pay big money (If I had big money) to see Lilah/Gunn in S5, because they'd be so snarky and hot and plus, big funny when Fred and Wes find out. I mean, can you imagine the double date? Major comedy potential.

I've seen a coupla fics that go Lilah/Knox pre-show but, well, no. Because it's icky and he looks like an elongated gnome on crack. Not good enough for our girl, says me.

But it was noticeable in Home that they have a nice young(ish) man named Rutherford Circe on staff, a britishly-accented ex-watcher (a Judas no less) with a certain dashing charm. Anyone's type, perhaps?

Or, you know, always go with the Beast. Just cause it's anatomically interesting.

There are fics that have pre-show Lilah/Knox? ...I did not know of this. Huh. (I am such a greedy, greedy archivist, y'all.)

Oz and Lilah would just be comedy, because he's so very zen, and Lilah is the absolute opposite of zen. She is gloriously, deeply Western. Stillness to her would be time to check out her manicure. glossing has some interesting Lilah and Oz interaction in her Verona Beach AU (where they are Inez and Daniel).

Oh, Lilah/Gunn. That just should have happened. Hrmf.

It may be written and I just haven't seen it, but Lilah in her office, in the middle of something with someone (scruffy!Wes works, but isn't necessary) and Gavin walks in with papers to sign, and Lilah, wearing nothing but pearls and heels, still tears into him. Hey, I'd find it funny.
