I'm Naomi, and am living in Britain at the moment, but have sort of lived.. around, and didn't even have a TV licence, let alone internet when these episodes aired. Whee for being young with very little money. But after seeing series 2 (eventually), Mickey's growth and development was easily the best part of it. And seeing that there's a whole shiny community devoted to this was just so many kinds of awesome.
Also, I really can't write fanfic or any real narrative prose (sorry), but, you know, that still leaves plenty of very nice fics to be commented on some more ; ) It would be tempting to vid them, but what's really so awesome about Mickey and Jake is the *potential* that we were presented, rather than what we actually got to see. So that'd take a lot of external source and general trickery to pull off, probably.
So, to make a contribution of sorts, what is it about this pairing that appeals to you so strongly?
