Apparently it's Fandom Love Day, and I ganked this celebratory meme from [livejournal.com profile] lusciousxander , despite the fact that I'm still not entirely sure whether I am, in fact, a shipper. 

Fave Ship: Dan Rydell / Casey McCall.

Canon Scene: My favorite moment between Casey and Danny, in a show absolutely full of Ho Yay, is the pause at the end of Dan's apology in 1.02 "Apology". Dan is forced by the show to apologise for a comment he made in a magazine interview, which suggested that he was not entirely in line with the policy behind the War on Drugs. He apologises to his brother Sam, who was killed while driving a car drunk and stoned, for the bad example he set in smoking so much dope.

After Dan finishes talking, Casey moves in, and reaches out to him, but then cuts himself off and goes back to talking about the Starland Vocal Band, which they had been discussing earlier. It's a tiny moment, but I like Casey's understanding that Dan couldn't bear his sympathy, or his touch, and the way that he metaphorically lets Dan lean on their banter as a way of making it through the next few minutes. (It is possible that I have overthought this.)

Honourable mention: 2.19 "April is the Cruelest Month".

CASEY: Anyway, I saw this guy... at my video store, and I started thinking.
DAN: What?
CASEY: That I wouldn't trade the last 10 years working with you for anything. Not for anything, Danny, I swear to God.

Fic Moment: Admit Impediment, by [livejournal.com profile] phoebesmum , which is my best hope for them. They're together, but closeted, and preparing for a wedding at which they will have to pretend not to be a couple. I've read a lot of other fic in which things turn out better, with extravagant declarations of love and public passion, but given that the sports world is more like this than it is like this, I feel like that is something out of their grasp.

(Bonus fic moment: In chasing down 'Adult Impediment' in my bookmarks, I re-read
Mother's Little Helper, also by [livejournal.com profile] phoebesmum , which is a heartbreaking piece of Danny backstory.)

Wish Fic: For any at all, really.
