So... You're point in being here is to say... what? You're Candy? Wow. Thanks. You being Candy makes me want to be Candy... Oh wait. It doesn't.

*facepalm* Why?
Polar, Xtremer, Drifter. Michael. Alec. Dean. Unapologetic. Flawed. And you know... real men.

i just realised that what i wrote might have not made sense and looking back it doesnt even make much sense to me.

i've read quite a few Liz and Michael stories, but they tend to be when maria is an annoying nag or a five year old or when she's dead but if none of those things are the case i prefer her with Michael pretty much because of what Peachykin said.

remember when michael stole liz's diary and when she visted in the trailer park the first time? i liked those scenes and fics that seem to have the kind of... air(i can't think of the word)... about them.

catdog, I'm confused, not on the you liking candy because that's a personal preference as all shipping is, but on what you mean. Could you explain?

Let's bring this back around to the topic...the love of the polar couple, not whether or not you are polar. We don't care.

Some of my current favorite polar stories are:

-Nothing Else Matters by Queenie
Summary: Canon through Chant Down Babylon. Michael takes extreme measures to keep Liz safe.

-Crossing the Line by DarkVixen
Summary: Set as the group is getting ready to graduate from high school. Michael did leave after Hank disappeared. He's come back a few years later but he's not alone and he's not the same man he was.

-Vertigo by kerri
Summary: After Tess falls pregnant and the pod squad leave, the gang is left to pick up the pieces. How do they react when they come face to face with those who haunt their dreams after nearly eight years?

-Chains of Reality by ladygloria
Summary: Another challenge fic, this one from Sara (muse). Hold on to your hats boys and girls, I promise a summary will come as soon as I think of one. Oh yes, and this story will be completely from one person's POV...that should be different. Can you guess who?

LOL, yes ma'am miss K! Great choices dear (although there is one up there that I'd disagree with, but what's the point). This is why you are my PT, btw.

My favorite polar stories of the moment that I've not already favorited because some are just classics and we all know them are:

Unclosed by theotherwillow
Dazed by theotherwillow (can we just say chapter one was OMG)
When Dreams Change by whimsicality (new author, great start)

Thanks for the recs, L. :)

I love theotherwillow's stories.

I am definitely going to look into the new polar story. I love to see new ones pop up.

Thanks, PT. :D Oh and that story ABSOLUTELY belongs to the list. COR is awesome.

OMG, I love Polar so much.

They are the original Unconventional couple because they make the most sense, and with some of those hints and the chemistry between Brendan and Shiri in those first few episodes, you knew that there was this something that could grow into a real attraction and great relationship later on if given a chance.

Like I've said before, before I watched all of Roswell (I'm a late fan, only became a fan after the dvds came out and i was bored and had just finished all my DA and alias seasons) I thought that Liz and Michael would have been great together and then there was Heat Wave and I was like "No!"

And I have nothing against Candy except that I think like most of the CC relationships, it got messed over end of S2 and the mess that was S3.

Queenie, Romantic Heart, Darkvixen, ladygloria, theotherwillow, Peachykin, and Dimensia have got to be my fave polar authors of all time! Their work is awe inspiring and kinda fearful, cause with that to compare to, my own pitiful attempts to write polar seem .....well pitiful.

Although, shameless plug, I have some great little drabbles in the UC thread called Polar Promises that would be a nice read....and of course, my crossover heart couldn't stand the lack of polar crossovers so wrote a little DA crossover that is definitely polar that is looking to shape up into something quite different than I thought it would be.

My dear, they are not pitiful at all, at least not the drabbles that I read. And I feel strangely embarrased and joyful at being included in such a fabulous group of authors. They make me feel the EXACT same way because their dedication to writing and storytelling is just awe-inspiring. I have rarely read authors that make me feel as much as they do. Heck, in some of their cases, I'd read things from them that I'd never read in real life (like romance). I'm more of an action/mystery/adventure/sci-fi girl and love to delve into people's heads (as if you can't tell by some of the things I have attempted to write) and tend to stick to those types of books when I read.

As for all of your other points, I agree. I always found the dynamics interesting and truly had nothing against candy until they were totally messed up (along with all characters in general) by the end of season 2 and season 3. I just never FELT the Candy love or sizzle (and thought that ultimately such a relationship with their backgrounds and personality would be doomed but that's my inner psychologist speaking up), but I do believe everyone has the right to their own tastes, thus why this board is so popular huh?
