Six ships you’re into right now.

01. Olicity (Arrow)
02. Captain Swan (Once Upon A Time)
03. Jane x Lisbon (The Mentalist)
04. Zoe x Wade (Hart of Dixie)
05. Allison/Scott/Isaac (Teen Wolf)
06. Wonder Woman/Batman/Superman (DC)

Three ships you liked, but don’t anymore.

(Note: these are all just ships I'm not super into anymore, not that I really ~dislike them.)

09. Sam/Jack (SG1)

Three ships you never liked.

10. Mulder/Skinner (also, Skinner/Krycek)
11. Sylar/anyone (two exceptions: Sylar!Nathan/Peter and Sylar/Claire)
12. Sheppard/Weir (although there's one amazing story that was Sheppard/Weir/McKay in many variations)

Two ships you’re curious about, but don’t actually ship.

13. Icabod Crane x Abbie Mills (Sleepy Hollow)
14. Steve x Danny (Hawaii Five-O)


QUESTIONS


Why do you dislike #11 so much? (Sylar/anyone)

I could never get into a romantic relationship with such an obvious psychopath. Does Sylar have some redeeming qualities? Not really. Only in the future 'verse we never saw happen (when the assumption is him and Claire). Is he an interesting character? Absolutely! But it always felt like shipping the serial killer of the week from Criminal Minds with someone. No thanks.

Who is someone you know that ships #14? (Steve x Danny)

Actually, that's a good question. I see it on tumblr, obviously (and reblog myself!) and I'm sure I've seen it on my flist, but it's not a ship I equate with one person specifically.

What would be your ideal scenario for couple #3? (Jane x Lisbon)

I really don't know! It's a weird romance for me because he is so entagled with his ex and for all his carefree attitude, he is deeply marked by Red John and his wife and daughter's loss. In one way, it seems best if he remains alone forever. On the other hand, I really think Lisbon helps him and could help him truly heal and move on. But is that fair to Lisbon? As she noted in the last episode, she doesn't always want to be his sidekick.

I guess, their continued work relationship at the FBI, with some added sex and maybe moving in together (which, of course, as part of the FBI, they can't) seems ideal. I don't see them the same as Grace and Rigsby, getting out of the cop business, settling down. Rather, more like a Mulder/Scully dynamic (before William). Them against the man, saving people along the way.

Which is your favorite moment for couple #1? (Olicity)

One? HA! All of it. Her awkward innuendos, her caring, the way he so clearly cares for her, their sexual chemistry...Just tonight, their conversation where she asks him to promise to come back..I CAN'T. And the hug when he does return? CUE FANGIRL SQUEEING.

How long have you been following couple #6? (Wonder Woman/Batman/Superman)

Just a few months! Since this summer sometime.

What’s the story with #8? What made you stop liking them/caring? (Apollo/Starbuck)

This is the one ship that did just kind of fade for me. By the end of the series, with her whole angel plot line, it was harder for me to be into them as much because she was sort of already gone. Though, the final with its flashbacks? There's something both terrible because they nearly had sex with her boyfriend/his brother passed out right there, yet, it was so obvious that they had the true connection and they should have been together.

You have the power to make one ship non existent. Choose from #10 or #12: (Mulder/Skinner or Sheppard/Weir)

Why would I want them to disappear? I hold nothing against either. If I had control over the ships on the show, yes, I'd send both away for MSR or Mulder/Krycek or McShep respectively, but I hold no animosity towards either.

Which ship do you prefer #2 or #4? (Captain Swan or Zoe x Wade)

What?! That's awful! I like them both for entirely different reasons. I guess the longest love is Zoe x Wade as I've shipped that since like ep 3 of S1 (and it's now S3), but I am currently passionately in love with the snark and bickering yet heroically grand love of a pirate and an independent woman who should be a princess.

What interests you about #14? (Steve x Danny)

Everything but the show itself.lol I've tried watching a few eps and it's always just "meh". But the writers have talked about them being married. They literally cuddle on the couch at one point! Destiel gets a lot of double intendre and "profound bond" lines but the arm over the shoulder is companionble (thinking S5). The cuddling on the couch? Who watches that and thinks the two aren't romantically involved?

Why did you stop liking #7? (Wincest)

Frankly, it was replaced by Destiel.

Did your waning interest in #9 kill your interest in the show? (Sam/Jack)

No way! Whenever I watch the show, I still ship them, I just don't think about them outside of the show (or the occasional gif set).

What’s a song that reminds you of #5? (Allison/Scott/Isaac)

Ooooo, good question. I don't actually have any in mind. Something angsty but British pop-ish? Or maybe like Stateless' Bloodstream. If you have recs, I'll take them!

If you could have any of these two pairings double-date, who would it be?

Well, if I shipped Elementary Sherlock/Watson, I'd say them and Icabod/Abbie, but since I don't...maybe Olicity and WW/Bats/Supes? I feel like the girls would bond over their idiot, self-sacrificing boyfriends while they have to clean up behind them.lol

(Actually, in my headcanon, Oliver has an entire harem of blondes and the Justice League gives him total shit. But I just love every Oliver pairing that exists in canon (or near canon with Olicity). So I imagine Oliver/Laurel/Chloe/Felicity. Currently, he has one adopted child (Sin, per comic canon, not Arrow canon) and the others are eagerly waiting.lol)

Have #2 kissed yet? (Captain Swan)

Yes they have! And it was sexy as hell.

Did #4 have a happy ending? If the show hasn’t ended yet, do you think a happy ending is likely? (Zoe x Wade)

Eep, not yet! I do like her current bf, Joel, but Zoe x Wade forever. If they don't end up together at the end, I will boycott. They make each other better.

What would make you start shipping #13? (Icabod/Abbie)

Hmmm. Currently, I really like them as friends. For him, it's only been a few months since he's seen his wife (less if you count the dreamworld/purgatory she's in) and I like them together, too. I think with some distance and some additional friends for Icabod (for once I don't want a MSR type relationship), I think I'll like them more on a romantic level.

If only one could happen, which would you prefer, #2 or #6? (Captain Swan or WW/Bats/Supes)

Well, Captain Swan is happening in a way and I think it may be endgame (unless they kill him), so I guess I'll take the OT3 that will never explicitly happen in canon despite the numerous allusions to it.

You have the power to decide the fate of #10. What happens to them? (Mulder/Skinner)

Skinner finds some lovely spitfire wife who is besties with Scully and Mulder marries Scully and Krycek (because he's not dead!) and they take over the world.

Which of these ships do you love the most?

Right this very moment? Olicity. But I get intense feels with all of the first 6 and such joy from fanfic of my current 2 OT3s.
