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 ^^

Lol, yes, I know XD Tops are the ones who run the game. Otherwise it is somehow done wrong. (Read the manuals, boys! *chackles*)

I am a good little author and list characters too, these days (as you've noticed, possibly). But sometimes people still want to see the pairing of the story (and in some communities you have to include it in the post, if there's one in the story).

But oh well, seems like there's no actual rule about anything, so I won't bother my head with it any more than I already have :D

I'm most definitely thinking of too many things at once (and LJ sucks because you can't edit your comments... *glare*)

I was meaning to say that bottoms run the game, not tops... geesh... *tries to find a desk that would fit her head*
