EDIT: This place is an escape for pairing fans, but anyone is welcome. The best known definition of asylum is probably that of the institutional sort. A place to keep the mentally ill. However, it also means a place of refuge or of sanctuary. Both meanings are probably accurate for this thread. Most of us have probably felt a bit frustrated about the various pairing debates at some point. People don't listen, posts get missed, tempers get high and the thread gets shut down. Again. So we need a place where pairing fans can get away from the debate to cool our jets for a bit. We can go off the clock like X and just have fun. It's not something that we can do in the fan clubs because they generally discourage too much off-topic stuff. Sometimes, it's better to just step away from the subject of pairings (or anything) and find a place to talk. This is that place. Fans of all pairings are welcome. It'll give everybody a chance to get to know each other better, but mostly it's just a place to chat. Here, the only thing that is off-topic is discussing pairings. It's been tried once before, but the thread got accidentally deleted so here it is again. And maybe in the process, we can keep the pairing debate thread alive. Instead of like this ... Spoiler: The Life of a Debate Thread X I didn't make it so the spelling's not my fault.
