We might not be able to satisfy everyone demands but we do listen and adapt to changes that are required for the greater good of both readers and writers. For now, we need to clearly define some terms used on the site.
1) Characters are individual characters, not parings. The current system for both writers and readers are defined in characters with no hint to pairing.
2) The order of characters are not important to the site. There is no character precedence by design.
3) When you search for characters, you are looking for stories with characters you are interested in. There is no pairing relationship involved. Due to the fact that there were only 2 slots available previously, users implied a pairing relationship.
With that said, we will be releasing a true-pairing system soon. True pairing system is currently in design phase and will be released when ready and possibly much sooner pending a medical decision from Dr. Noahsleep regarding excessive caffeine intake for our mutant developers.
So there you have it. Two characters are not equal to a pairing and you currently cannot set or filter pairings but everything will change soon.
P.S. We just added Amazon login support.
