What really sells you on a relationship? Is it the chemistry between the characters (perhaps even the actors)? Is it the subtext?

For me, it's banter. My family is always picking on each other and I banter a lot when I'm flirting, so witty banter really is what sells me on a relationship. That's why I love Charlie/Colby, Spike/Xander, Jack/Ianto, Zach/Shaun, Eliot/Hardison and Eliot/Nathan, Sam/Dean, even Hermione/Snape (not that they banter in canon, but a lot of the Hermione/Severus fic I read in my early fanfic reading years when she's older, there's quite a bit of banter and she holds her own against his snark). Although, Morgan and Garcia banter A LOT, their relationship is more a quasi-brother-&-sister/best-friends-who-flirt-because-it's-safe-to-do-so than romantic to me. On the other hand, I LOVE Garcia/Kevin, especially their hacking foreplay in Penelope when they're bantering without words and even with words without the other hearing them ♥

Anyway, the whole point is to get a discussion going, learn other people's point of view. Het, slash, gen lovers all welcome, pimp this out to your friends. Just, please, respect other people's point of view. If you disagree with someone's theory, be polite and courteous, don't flame or I WILL delete your comment.
