For the most part, I don't judge people on who they ship, especially when it comes to Heroes because it will always be my most beloved show.
Yep, I was feeling pretty emo after watching Scandal the previous night. But you know what made me feel better? Heroes. Whenever something like this gets me down, I go back to Heroes, and more specifically, HRG. And it always makes me feel better. Whether it's watching the actual episodes or clips, fan videos or fanfiction, or even just coming on here or tumblr and looking at or posting pics and graphics. It's like... going home.
Unfortunately, there is a bit of a lack of decent fic starring Noah Bennet and more importantly, my OTP Noah/Eden. So, when I need inspiration, I generally turn back to things that I've made in the past:
Watching this again really got me thinking about the HRG pairings that I really like
all of them
. And reading some more fic
Noah/Eden will probably always be my OTP though.
Try and tell me that this scene didn't have perviness written all over it...
I made a Noah/Eden fan mix a while back, which I posted here
(I also made a noaire one, a poah one and a Noah/Claude one) and I was listening to these playlists and some other songs in my itunes lists when it suddenly hit me that Night Moves by Bob Seger is such a perfect Noah/Eden song.
"She was a black-haired beauty with big dark eyes
And points all her own sitting way up high
Way up firm and high...
...We weren't in love, oh no, far from it
We weren't searchin' for some pie in the sky summit
We were just young and restless and bored
Livin' by the sword
And we'd steal away every chance we could
To the backroom, to the alley or the trusty woods
I used her, she used me
But neither one cared
We were gettin' our share
Workin' on our night moves"

One more bit of randomness I've been thinking about a lot lately. I also happen to love Noah/Lauren. But there's something that always bugged me about Lauren. I always felt like she was a replacement for Eden. I mean, as far as the storyline goes, she worked at Primatech at the same time... and it wasn't a case of "one of us, one of them" because she didn't have an ability. So, I always felt, in my shipper heart, that everything that happened between Noah and Lauren in what was supposed to be a flashback to season 1 should
have happened between Noah and Eden. That being said, I do ship Noah with Lauren anyway (how could I not?) and there is even a fantastic fic
that I would just as soon adopt as canon, taking place during season 4.
