Fanfiction is awesome because you can watch your otp fall in love a thousands times , in a thousand different ways
Unless your otp is a rare pair, in which case you can watch them fall in love six times, in six different ways.
And you wrote four of them.
Every human being has hundreds of separate people living under his skin. The talent of a writer is his ability to give them their separate names, identities, personalities and have them relate to other characters living with him.
