Day 30: Your favorite pairing forever and ever and ever!

Well, the pairing I've shipped the longest that I'm still interested in is Kirk/Spock.



The one I only started shipping 13 months ago but don't see myself getting tired of is Holmes/Watson.




...and that's the end of that meme! Now I need a new 30 day meme. xD
speccygeekgrrl42: (*lol* : Sherlock and John)
Day 29: What ship had the best proposal?

I can't remember seeing any proposals. I know I must have at some point, but I honestly can't think of one.

However, "want to see some more?" strikes me as quite a proposal...
speccygeekgrrl42: (? : Brittany)
Day 28: A pairing that you will never understand.

This is not to say I haven't read it, because I have, I'm not going to lie, but it still doesn't make any kind of logical sense...

Harry/Snape, Harry Potter



No, I couldn't find a better picture that wasn't fanart, and most of the fanart wasn't going to help me make my point, which is that hatesex is one thing (see: Harry/Draco) and age differences are another thing (I can't think of an example I support in HP but I'm sure there is one) and all of the issues that go along with Snape having been in love with Lily just add to the clusterfuckyness of the pairing and there are just too many reasons they really don't work for me to be convinced by any ship manifesto or impassioned defense of the pairing. I have a friend at Wells who is super into Hermione/Snape and I don't buy that either.
speccygeekgrrl42: (do not ever take me seriously. : Eleven)
Day 27: A pairing that you loved and ended up hating.

It takes a lot to sour me on a pairing, really. Once I start shipping I tend to go on as I begin and just add more ships to the list rather than disliking older ships. That said...

Ten/Rose, Doctor Who.



I liked it for a couple of episodes, but it never thrilled me the way Nine/Rose did, and I eventually just stopped watching Doctor Who. I didn't come back to it until the Doctor regenerated again.
speccygeekgrrl42: (good girl. have a treat. : TBBT)
Day 26: A pairing that you hated and ended up loving.

Penny/Sheldon, The Big Bang Theory



I didn't like it at first-- I actually really really liked Leonard/Penny-- but it grew on me and now I think it's pretty adorable when done right.
speccygeekgrrl42: (*awkward neck rub* : Castiel)
Day 25: A pairing that was/would-be adorable, but could never work out.

Sam/Al, Quantum Leap.



I mean, it could have worked out if Sam ever made it back, but... well, you try being in a relationship while one of you is a hologram.
speccygeekgrrl42: (do not ever take me seriously. : Eleven)
Day 24: A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out badly

Nine/Rose/Jack, Doctor Who.



Anything that leaves you all in varying states of immortality, newly regenerated and lost to each other qualifies as "badly", I think.
speccygeekgrrl42: (are you seeing this? : Leverage)
Day 23: A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out great.

Sheppard/Rodney/Teyla/Ronon, SGA.



What? I'm a teamshipper. (Did it work out great? I still haven't seen the back half of season 5.)
speccygeekgrrl42: (curse your srs bzns! : Firefly)
Day 22: A pairing you hate and no one understands why.

I don't hate many pairings, really, and the ones I dislike I usually have a pretty solid reason for disliking... so I'll just go with a pairing I don't like much that a few people I know do like.

Simon/River, Firefly.



Like, I can see why people like it... I just can't bring myself to like it.
speccygeekgrrl42: (codependency : Andy/Nancy)
Day 21: A pairing you like and no one else understands why.

None of my pairings are all that unbelievable any more... back when I was rareshipping Heroes I would have had something to say here, but all of my current fandoms, I'm pretty much in line with the popular pairings.

Let me just go with the pairing that anyone with sense would say "no, this is a bad idea," the pairing I am super into right now thanks to mainlining season six last night:

Andy/Nancy, Weeds



She is SO BAD FOR HIM. One could argue that she is, in fact, the worst thing that's ever happened to him. But he loves her so much. And he really does a good job in the paternal role to Silas and Shane, as far as anyone can to those kids, anyway. And, just, awww, I love Andy Botwin so much, he should have good things happen to him, and Nancy finally fucking him would be a good thing. Maybe. Kind of.
speccygeekgrrl42: (a loving wife &devoted pet :White Collar)
Day 20: The can’t-stand-the-sexual-tension pairing.

Neal/Peter/Elizabeth, White Collar





remaining days )
speccygeekgrrl42: (and it was good. : Spock/Kirk/McCoy)
Day 19: A pairing you’ve rooted for since the beginning.

Kirk/Spock/McCoy. TOS, not reboot.



What? It took me like three days of watching Star Trek to fall in love with the dynamic these three have going. I was 14 when I started shipping it. Quite possibly this is my longest-standing pairing, since I don't really ship any X-Files or Buffy pairings actively any more, but I will never stop loving K/S/M.
speccygeekgrrl42: (don't give away your heart : Mohinder)
Day 18: What is the cutest pairing?

Micah/Molly, Heroes.



I believe this is what's known as a Toy Ship. COME ON SO ADORABLE and you know they would be the most awesome team of superheroes working to save other specials and then they'd grow up and there would be kissing. AWW. [livejournal.com profile] boombangbing wrote me the best Micah/Molly story for one round of [livejournal.com profile] heroes_exchange.
speccygeekgrrl42: (*YAY* : Chuck and Olive)
Day 17: A pairing you never thought would work, but did.

Ned/Chuck, Pushing Daisies.



Because you wouldn't think a relationship will work out when the people can't even touch each other... but they found some creative ways to get around that problem, and they really were such a cute couple.
speccygeekgrrl42: (are you done? / no. : TBBT)
Day 16: What is the absolute worst pairing?

Jack Harkness/Gwen Cooper.



This moment with the picture is about the only time they had convincing chemistry. Their relationship would break up two relationships that actually work, Gwen/Rhys (although Rhys deserves better) and Jack/Ianto (and [livejournal.com profile] karaokegal, I already know your opinion on this, please don't), and just, no. You could argue pretty much any other Torchwood pairing and I'd support it more than Jack/Gwen.

It doesn't help that I think Gwen is massively annoying most of the time, I'm sure.

Luckily for me, Torchwood is a large enough and varied enough fandom that there is plenty to read besides this pairing. Though I could stand to have a bit more Owen/Tosh fic around.
speccygeekgrrl42: (*kiss!*)
Day 15: What is your favorite real life pairing?

[livejournal.com profile] maggiesox/[livejournal.com profile] wing2j.

Just, the things she says about her marriage make me go "aww" and hope one day I will be even half as lucky as she is.
speccygeekgrrl42: (forgot towel; brought gun. : John)
Day 14: What is your favorite book pairing?

Arthur Dent/Ford Prefect, from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.



Yes, this predates Martin Freeman playing Arthur, by quite a bit really. I read HHGttG first when I was eleven and had no idea what slash was. I've read it just about yearly since I was handed it by my well-meaning sixth grade teacher (who had NO IDEA what a monster he created by setting me onto sci-fi), and every time I reread it since realizing hey, two guys can be in love too, I just shipped them harder and harder.

Also, I can't quite get over Mos Def as Ford. I mean, I love him in the role, but I'm pretty sure Ford is described as ginger at least once. And you all know how I feel about gingers.

(also: if you know of any good fanfiction, POINT ME AT IT. There's not enough in the world to satisfy me.)
speccygeekgrrl42: (bang bang : Chuck)
Day 13: What is your favorite movie pairing?

Mr. White/Mr. Orange, from Reservoir Dogs.



Fucked up, undoubtedly. But you watch that movie and tell me there's not a love story lurking there, and I'll laugh in your face. The way it all ends still breaks my heart.
speccygeekgrrl42: (safe. : Amy/Rory)
Day 12: Who had the best wedding?

Amy Pond and Rory Williams.



Seriously, best EVER.
speccygeekgrrl42: (curse your srs bzns! : Firefly)
Day 11: What's your dream pairing?

Zoe/Wash.



There is just nothing about their relationship that I don't completely adore. They're my actually-married OTP.
