Re: Calleigh & Ryan #7: "You’re fantastic" - CaRWash Me too, guys, me too... I think there's a list of CaRWash moments at the beginning of the thread, but you can see that the majority of those great lines originate from season 3. *sighs* If only we could go back to that happy place. Who knows, maybe it'll happen in the future. Come to think of it, I started shipping 'cause of fanfiction! I had just started watching CSI: Miami, and the first episode I saw was-- I don't remember the name, but it's where Jake kissed Calleigh. *shudders* I first saw Ryan being bossed around by Stetler and I remember thinking why isn't he out there with the others?... well, that and the fact that I noticed he was left-handed. I have a thing for lefties-- hello, Don Flack, anyone? I was really interested in Ryan and I liked Calleigh, so I decided to take a look at fanfiction.net. Of course, there was no CaRWash in that particular episode and TPTB were introducing Jake and Eric as possible love interests for Calleigh, but something about it rubbed me the wrong way. I ended up looking for Ryan fics and I saw pairings with Natalia and Valera, but I didn't know who they were at the time, so I started with CaRWash one-shots. Eventually, I decided to read one of Dutchie's fics and the rest is history. Wow, I've come a long way!
