Better together...

So, it turns out I have an OTP. Whodathunkit.

Whilst I can happily imagine any number of romantic/sexual attachments;

Sam/Maya, Sam/Annie, Sam/Mobile Phone, Sam/Chris, And then there were the Sam/Ray thoughts that made me giggle and mumble "a braver person than I", Gene/The Missus, Gene/Annie, Gene/Jackie, Gene/Ray, hell, even Gene/Chris...

When it really comes down to it, I am both vehemently and passionately committed to Sam/Gene as the over-arching partnership. That scares me. I didn't know I was so gaga about it. Since when did that happen?

The thing which boggles my mind is that by the end of series one, they're not even really close friends. They're on the way to being close friends. There's a certain level of trust there. But it's not like they're best buds or are planning to co-ordinate their family holidays together.

I think... maybe, that's why I like them so much? Because this, for me, is kind of more realistic than other OTPs in other fandoms? I can relate to the distance between them just as much as I can relate to the bond.

I've never actually had a proper OTP before. What am I supposed to do with it? Do I water it? What does it eat?
