Question about pairing

October 26th, 2007 (06:34 pm)

I know, I KNOW; I have been writing smut for about a... oh, I don't know, at least a year. And have been reading it even longer.

I have been wondering about this for a while (forever, maybe?):

is there a difference between, let's say, Jared/Colin, and Colin/Jared (well, duh, you can pick any pairing... Peter/Nathan, Nathan/Peter). Is there a rule, like, that the one who tops in the story should have his name there first? :P

I know, this is silly, and pointless, but if there is a rule of some sort, I think it's high time I learn about it. I usually write it in alphabetical order, or how it sounds best.

Thank you in advance ^^

My general rule is that the one who "starts" the whole thing goes first. So, if Jared comes onto Colin, it'd be Jared/Colin, and vice versa. But that could just be the way I do it...not sure.

If there's a hard and fast, set-in-stone rule, I don't even know it, so you're not alone there. ;)

Hmm... lol, ok :P

Maybe this should be made into a poll instead XD Who uses which way to determine their pairings and the order they're put in...

But thanks, anyway! *hugs*
