Author has written 31 stories for Will and Grace, and Nanny.

Currently ruining my life: Niles and CC from The Nanny.

Why: We could discuss the witty banter and the chemistry all day (seriously--PM me if you want to) but what I find most compelling about them is that their "very complicated relationship" allowed them to know each other in a way that only people pretending to hate each other for years can: the ins and outs, the good and bad, the highs and lows. And they still fell in love, got married, and got pregnant. (And made out, wrestled on the balcony, danced in front of a fireplace, drew on each other with permanent marker, threw eggs at each other, visited each other in the hospital, missed each other when they were gone, and managed to survive at least 4 rejected marriage proposals.) Maybe my OTP became canon in the most awkward way possible, but they got it together in the end.
