RPF squicks me pretty hard. It's kind of the same way that I can't look at paparazzi photos of my favorite actors. It feels like an intrusion into someone's life. Which is not a value judgment on anyone who enjoys RPF; it's just how it feels to me. The one exception was that I read a whole lot of Johnny Weir figure skating RPF during the 2010 Olympics. He seemed like the kind of guy who wanted people to write erotic fanfic about him.
Well, I'm on a huge Veronica Mars kick right now, so my current favorite first kiss is Logan/Veronica. Their first kiss in the series was completely unexpected, yet it also made total sense. Plus it was so passionate! And their first kiss in the new movie was beautiful too.

S3 of Sherlock ruined Sherlock/John for me. Although John marrying a woman was certainly inconvenient for my shipping preferences, the moment that really broke me came much before that. When they're on the train, and Sherlock manufactures a life-threatening situation just to get John to admit his feelings...ugh. At that point, it was no longer possible for me to believe they could have a healthy relationship.
I've not seen any Veronica Mars yet, but I will add it to my list.

I agree with you about Sherlock. We all knew he was a git, but that tube scene was so deliberately hurtful, it broke Sherlock as a character. I just pretend I haven't seen S3, it's been deleted ;)
Laughing at your Johnny Weir comment -- if he hasn't discovered fanfic about him (and I wouldn't be surprised if he has!), I think he'd be tickled by it. :)
