The pairing I write the most is only my second or third favorite, and I almost never write my favorite pairing. My favorite pairing is a popular one and there are lots of great writers who do a great job of writing it - so there's a lot to live up to, and not really a need for good fics for that pairing, since there are plenty already.

By contrast, the pairing I write most is less popular, and the prevailing interpretation of it is one I don't care for, so I feel like I'm filling a niche that relatively few other writers have tackled. Since I'm going for an alternative interpretation, many fans of the pairing may not be interested in what I do, but the stuff I've done so far has gotten a good enough response that I know I'm not the only one who prefers to see that pairing in a different light.
