Mental notes... fandom terminology

I compose LJ posts and comments in my head. Only maybe half of them ever get posted. And I post and comment a lot -- I'm the second or third commenter in many different journals, many of which I'm not even all that emotionally close to, just chatty, and I have insane amounts of posts per day.

Which tells you how much I write in my head.

So I was thinking, as a comment to ydnic's note_to_asshat post about the IM sex asshats, "Yeah, and I was on the phone with my OTP at the time, and he couldn't believe the idiot either."

Let us examine that. "...my OTP..."!

My life is fanfic?

But, seriously. If I were a fandom, despite the fact that I'm dating someone else, many of the fen would have Lunatic/Maniac as their OTP. (I think.)

OTP implies that it's currently happening only in fanfic. He's not a SO. He's my chosen partner, with UST, and he's my OTP.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
