I have no time for this.  

If someone writes me a kickass Rick/Shane Walking Dead fic, I will podfic it for you. I have no time to make any podfic for any pairing in any fandom for at least the next month, but I don't even care. If you write it for me, I'll record it for you.

I'm normally pretty ambivalent about pairings. If it works in the fic, it works for me. I like slash, femmeslash, and (to a slightly lesser extent) het, but I'm a gen girl at heart. Give me angst. Give me h/c. Give me good, character-driven stories, and I'm all about it. But holy shit, y'all, I just got caught up with The Walking Dead during my break between classes, and now I find myself shipping Rick/Shane like whoa. I mean, the sane part of my brain still thinks their relationship is powerful enough exactly as it is, but this last episode...it worked for me.

I love The Walking Dead, but it's not one of the shows I get really fannish about. I like the story as it is (in both the comic and the TV show), and before now I've never felt the urge to seek out alternative, transformative narratives within that universe. And, as I've already said, I don't tend to ship characters very hard in any of the shows I am fannish about. What gives, self?

TL;DR - Rick/Shane: If you write it, I will pod.
