Return of the Ficpoll (Oasis of hurt/comfort edition)

I woke up this morning with an urge to write h/c. Mostly what I need is a short-ish thing to work on as a break from Iceland that is not also a giant plotty thing. Because all I have right now are complicated plotty things, and context-switching is becoming tricky. I needs me some idfic as a change of pace.

How much do you love hurt/comfort fic?

A lot.
8(34.8%)
No, really, a whole lot.
7(30.4%)
They could stop making other flavors of fic and I wouldn't notice.
1(4.3%)
It's okay.
4(17.4%)
I like fluff better. Skip the apocalypse; go straight for the tea.
3(13.0%)
I like horror better. Skip the tea; plunge into the apocalypse.
0(0.0%)
I loathe h/c with the fiery plasma of a thousand burning suns.
0(0.0%)

Ways in which this poll oppresses me:

You left out the other half of my OTP!
2(10.0%)
You left out my favorite h/c trope!
1(5.0%)
Didn't you read my response to the previous question? I hate h/c! You should be writing (fill in name of other genre here) instead.
0(0.0%)
You do not need more ideas for stories. You need to finish some of the existing ones.
3(15.0%)
You used radio buttons on one question!
2(10.0%)
Why are they still called radio buttons, anyway? Car radios haven't had them for 20 years or more.
12(60.0%)

Essay question: prompt more specifically or vent your outrage at some aspect of this poll.



I really ought to make you people make choices and fill in the little radio buttons. 'Cause I know one of you is going to torment me by checking every single box. I'm looking at you, NutterBudgie. (The comfort I suggest to make up for poll-torment is "tea" plus "meandering conversation".)

Random promotion: tabloid_btvs: a challenge made for the Buffyverse or what? We got your swamp monsters right here. (Perhaps too suitable: The X-Files. That's what we'd call too on the nose.)

Bonus random: "I Often Dream of Trains", 2008 live performance from what seems to have been a live performance of the whole album. It was a Robyn Hitchcock sort of weekend for me. Have some more Robyn.
