You know... this is a serious thing I've noticed and pondered more than necessary in fandom. Forget all the issues around what happens when people decide on a romantic pairing in a fandom. Isn't it a bit odd that nearly everyone assumes that everyone in a story is going to get together with someone else in that same story? For example, I've seen Molly paired with nearly everyone. I don't know that I've seen that Molly was ever paired with an original character we haven't ever met, but who is her perfect match. Or Anthea as Mycroft's wife/lover/etc. It suddenly struck me as very very very weird. And now I can't stop thinking about it.
