One of the earliest memories of my childhood is of watching Star Wars and going, “Wow, Han Solo is so hot and that Leia chick kicks butt. They really should get together.”

I was four.

Yes, that’s right: my earliest ship was Solo/Princess Leia and I was FOUR YEARS OLD. At the time, of course, I had no idea that when I sat there and waited for him grab her & kiss her silly that what I was doing was shipping. Nope. All I knew was that it made SENSE for these two crazy kids to get together.

It was also, I guess, my first brush with the idea that I am a true canon shipper. I’m all about the OTP and I’m just not good at looking outside of that box. If you give me a love triangle, I immediately go, “Yeah, but who is she going to marry? What’s the ENDING?” And that third point? In the triangle? Is dead to me.

I think the first time, though, that I became somewhat OBSESSED with a TV ship was back in the day when “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” aired. For some reason, I shipped Dr. Quinn and Sully HARD. It was my first experience with watching a show and impatiently waiting for the “good parts” (usually a part that involved longing stares and UST) and any episode that included shipper pandering was usually watched on an endless loop. My friends were also into the pairing, so it was typical for us to talk on and on about the way Sully looked with his shirt wet, while Dr. Quinn looked on in frustration. Had I known about the idea of fanfiction back then (this was in the mid-90s), I probably would have written fanfiction. Honestly. But, as these things go, the show went well past it’s welcome and the second they got the two characters married, my heart went out of it. (Or maybe I outgrew the show, I’m not sure.)

Anyway, in books, I was always looking for the OTP. Anne and Gilbert Blythe. Ah, how I still remember the way I felt when I read the series in one quick succession (I was in third grade at the time) and how I couldn’t believe that Anne waited so long to jump him. I knew from the moment she cracked his head with the chalkboard; and, yet, it took EONS for her to finally marry the guy. Sheesh. I mean, he fell in love with her because she gave him a concussion. That guy’s a keeper. It doesn’t hurt that he’s apparently hot and popular with the ladies.

And then there’s Elizabeth Bennett and William Darcy. What can I say that hasn’t already been said by others much better than I? The perfect love story. The original romance novel. Utterly loaded guy that EVERY girl wants; feisty girl that has a filter problem. And, of course, he falls for her. Ah, it gets me. Every.single.time.

Lois Lane and Clark Kent. To me, they are the comic book version of Liz & Darcy. He’s the guy that is way too perfect to be true. With one glance, he could get any woman he wants. Who does he want? The girl who tells him off and is known for being a bit rude and annoying, though her heart is in the right place.

What all these ships have in common is that the women are… well… sometimes they can be a bit much. But that’s OK. Because they guys aren’t perfect, either. What makes the ships work is that the men actually fall in love with these women BECAUSE of how strong these women are. It’s not a turn-off, even though the rest of the world thinks it should be.

As Darcy says in “Bridget Jones’ Diary” – all these guys want these women just as they are. They don’t secretly want them to change. Hans Solo isn’t standing around waiting for Leia to marry him and have a billion babies while she makes him hot dinners every night. Darcy doesn’t want Elizabeth to suddenly become all impressed by his wealth and start thinking how great it is that she’s rich. Nope. He wants someone who’ll tell him off and be kind to his sister. Gilbert loves that Anne has red hair and once cracked a chalkboard over his head in a fit of temper because he pointed it out. He wouldn’t trade that in for the world. And Clark Kent? Ah… that man… he sees Lois Lane’s flaws and decides that his love of her flaws is symbolic of his love for all of humanity.

I have so many ships that I’ve adored over the years (some more so than others; some more emotional for me than others) that I’d be hard pressed to list them all. But I’ll just try to jot down a few that fills me with the good shivers & just really scratches the romance itch for me.

- Harry & Ginny Weasley in Harry Potter
- Ron and Hermione in Harry Potter
- Audrey and Nathan in Haven (for some reason, I want these two to just jump each other every single time they’re onscreen together; it must be the SV shipper in me)
- Annie and Jeff in “Community” (am very torn about this one)
- Leslie Knope and Ben Wyatt in “Parks & Recreation” (oh my God, they are so cute, I want to eat them up with a spoon)

Random ships from the past:

- Hannah and Bright in “Everwood” (they were the only reasons I watched the show)
- A book series by Eloisa James… about the Essex sisters. I really loved Mayne and Josie & wanted them to get together SO badly, even though Mayne was about 38 and Josie was about 18. I wasn’t the only one – a lot of folks wrote fanfiction about them.
- House and Cuddy from “House” (not watching it anymore, thank you very much.)
- Veronica Mars and Piz (this is one of the ONLY times I ever shipped knowing that it wasn’t the OTP of the show… and regretted it)
- Luke and Lorelei in Gilmore Girls (boy did I hate what they did with this)
- Bones and Brennan in “Bones” (again, I hate what they’re doing to this ship)
- Inara and Mal in Firefly (but I loved this show so much that it really had nothing to do with ships for me… I just think he’s hot as all hell & I’m going to ship him with ANY woman he gets within 3 feet of and makes sexy eyes at her)
- Xander and Cordelia (I really liked when they got together and was disappointed when they broke up; but I loved her in “Angel”, so I wasn’t that distraught by it)
- Meredith and McDreamy (oh, my God. I still remember the first season and I how I couldn’t WAIT between episodes. Then… uh… I got over that in the third season)
- President Roslin and Adama in Battlestar Gallactica (I know everyone ships Starbucks and Lee, but these two where my OTP for the show)
- Monica and Chandler in “Friends” (I shipped these two HARD and loved every single second of their romance)
- Random, but I read a series of Star Wars books a long time ago and, since then, I’ve shipped Luke with this chick named Mara Jade.

So… what about you guys…. ? Are you guys hard-core shippers? Are you addicted to the idea of soulmates and love, passion, romance just as much as I am? Do you watch a show and immediately go, “What’s the OTP? Is there one? Should I invest my emotions or not?” Did you ever stop watching a show just because the way they handled the shipping was so bad?

What’s your favorite pairings ever?

SO much yes for Anne Shirley & Gilbert Blythe! I think I wrote a future!fic about them for one of my elementary language arts projects. *L*

I've got 2 bullet-proof ships: Lois/Clark & Gambit/Rogue. Lois & Rogue have a lot in common-- strong women, often stronger than the men around them, definitely stronger than any one person needs to be; determined; smart; independent; dedicated to their life philosophy whether it's eliminating corruption through writing or saving a world that hates & fears you. But at the same time, they've got soft creamy centres that they hide for various reasons.

Their love interests could NOT be more different. *L* Clark is apple pie, boy scouts, sweetness, straight-edge ties, sometimes portrayed as so loving of life that he's vegetarian & everything my mother says I should look for in a husband. Gambit is a proud thief, a boozing womanizer, a shameless liar, smokes like a bloody chimney, IDFK what he's up to half the time & my mother would certainly beat my ass with a high-heeled shoe if I brought him home.

I ship Lois/Clark & Rogue/Gambit because they compliment each other. I'm not the hugest fan of the traditional definition of soulmates because I think it takes away the fierceness with which these two couples fight to stay together. They work on their relationships. They have very real, very understandable arguments-- Lois takes unnecessary risks & Clark belongs to the world; Gambit hides too much & Rogue demands everything. Gambit won't stop smoking or thieving. Rogue's knee-jerk response is to run away. Lois lashes out to those she loves the most. Clark introverts too much when he's hurt.

But as much as they might argue, they work three times as hard to stay together. I find that idea more compelling, more romantic, than soulmates because, IMHO, once the word "destiny" is introduced, the characters' choice, the reason they fight so hard, is taken away. Maybe years down the road, when they've been together a gazillion years, their lives will permeate the other's to the point where one will fade if the other isn't around. That definition of soulmate, I like.

/unsolicited debate

Oh, I cannot see Martha Kent (nee Clark) with anyone but Jonathan Kent. With the X-Men, I would freaking DIE if Rictor & Shatterstar ever broke up after literally decades of subtext. In X-Men Movieverse, I'm positive the world would be a better place if Magneto & Professor X never broke up. I kind of think that way with comicverse & toonverse, too. I'm not die-hard about Dean/Castiel in Supernatural but I do enjoy them the most.

PS: Another Eloisa James series you say? I must get my sticky hands on them.

I know next to nothing about Rogue/Gambit. I don't follow X-Men. But I'm going to take your word for it.

And, you wrote Anne/Gilbert fanfic back in school without even knowing it??? ROFL. Awesome. To me, Anne/Gilbert is actually a LOT like Harry/Ginny. Whenever people say to me that there is no reason to believe in the H/G pairing, my response is, "Then why believe in ANY pairing? Anne/Gilbert certainly didn't have pages and pages of romance over a 7 book series. He was very much a supporting character. And, in fact, Anne spent much of the series hating his guts. And, yet, everyone just takes for granted that she ended up with him. Why not have the same attitude towards the HP books?"

Regarding soulmates: I see soulmates as something that is not "fated". And I think SV has really screwed up what the word means. It's one thing to say that a person is your kindred spirit and your souls touch each other's in a way that they just don't touch anyone else (that's my definition of soulmate) and it's another to say, "Out of the entire galaxy, you're only meant to be this ONE person, no matter what."

Like I said, I believe in the first one (the soul touching thing) and not the second. And SV, unfortunately, when the second route.

I see Dean as hetrosexual, but I do really enjoy the Dean/Castiel bromance (and I see Castiel being Bi he wanted to; but I can't imagine Dean being Bi).

Martha/Jonathan? Hells, yeah. I completely agree. I still vomit a little at the thought of Mionel.

Oh, and, yeah -- if you have read the "Essex sisters" 4 part series by Eloisa James, then you should. It's some of her better work, I think.

I too am torn on the Anne/Jeff ship in Community. The only thing that weirds me out is that Anne is too young. I always felt that Anne made Jeff want be a better person. I went lol and awww at the same time during the "fan video" in the flashback episode.

I also at the VERY BEGINNING I shipped Peter/Claire in HEROES very hard. I was so pissed that TPTB made them relatives. I've always thought that HEROES was missing a "super couple" for the show. The closest they got to that type of bond was with the Mr. Bennet/Claire and the Peter/Nathan relationships. If only the TPTB scrapped the Nathan/Claire storyline after seeing Milo and Hayden's crazy onscreen chemistry. What better way to keep the will they won't they with having age difference coupled with the fact that she's only a junior in high school (season 1) as the barrier. Then once season 4 rolls around she'd be old enough to get with Peter since he's only in his mid 20's in season 1. Urg!

Lois/Clark (only for Smallville and Lois & Clark New Adventures of Superman): I'll ship for comics cause I know out of all superheroes Lois & Clark have stood the test of time (I don't read comics so I'm impartial but would still be weirded out if they broke up.). I won't ship them in the movies since she just falls superficially for a god and not for the real guy Clark that has flaws and pays bills. Read the stories by AmeliaFaulks, she totally takes care of that. http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1330609/

Other Ships:
Jennifer/Jack in "Days of Our Lives" circa late 80's - early90's: I love the fact that they were an accidental couple that, because they sizzled in their first scenes together, the writers put them together

Chuck/Sarah in "Chuck"
Piper/Leo in "Charmed"
Angel/Buffy in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"
Bruce/Selena Kyle in "Batman": can't wait for Dark Knight Rises
Sawyer/Juliet in "Lost": they were so cute
Barney/Robin in "How I Met Your Mother": I don't believe that two awesomes can cancel each other out
10th Doctor/Rose in "Doctor Who"
Arthur/Gwen in "Merlin"

A ship but not really:
Daniel Radcliffe/Emma Watson
This is not a real world ship. My greatest hope is to have the two of these actors star opposite each other in another movie. First let me say, I'm not a shipper of any sort for Harry Potter. Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione are fine and dandy because they are cannon. I never really cared much either way. But early on I leaned towards the Harry/Hermione cause I just sucked up the onscreen chemistry that Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson had. (I bet this is the reason Harry/Hermione shippers still exist.) Plus it didn't help that Dan and Bonnie had no chemistry and was clunky and awkward.

I know... the Annie/Jeff thing is very odd, to me. I feel like the writers flat out told us it's never happening (in the series finale, where they revealed that Jeff/Brita have been fuck buddies all season). So, I can't really emotionally invest in ships in that show.

Heroes: I never shipped anyone on that show, but - to be honest - I couldn't make it past the second season.

Chuck/Sarah: Yeah, I got really into them this past year. They were REALLY cute as an engaged couple.

Sawyer/Juliet: OH MY GOD, YES!!! The heat. The chemistry. The last scene? By the vending machine??? Be still my beating heart.

Barney/Robin: ANOTHER HELL YES. I can't believe I forgot about them. Oh, wait, I can. Because these last two seasons have been terrible & I hate what they did with that ship.

Dan/Emma: Hhhmmmm... I am not an Emma Watson fan. But I do like Daniel Radcliffe (and then feel slightly pervy, because he's 11 years younger than me). I do feel like poor Bonnie/Dan were kind of shackled with bad writing and bad direction. For some reason, they weren't allowed to Go There. But, yeah, I do think that Ginny may have been miscast.

Hi Sana! Hopefully this won't be too long. I watch a lot of tv. LOL.

My OTP is Lois/Clark of Smallville and then Lois/Clark of LNC clark comes in a close second (but really I just love the story of this couple so much that I'll support them anyway I can. Superman Returns...ugh I won't speak on that. The comics situation right now is hurting my soul.)

The funny thing is the earliest I can remember shipping was when I was 9/10 years old. I was an avid Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fan. I didn't know what shipping was then, but I wanted Kimberly (Pink Ranger) and Jason (Red Ranger) to get together so badly. I was devastated and angry when Tommy (the every color ranger) showed up.

The other shows I shipped hardcore were Brooke and Lucas from OTH and Alex and Izzie from Grey's Anatomy.

Other ships:
Brenda/Sonny (GH: circa early 90s this recent installment is Bizzaro to me, they did so much damage on her return recently)
Piper/Leo (Charmed)
Barney and Robin (How I Met Your Mother)
Meredith/Derek (Grey's, Sana I felt the same way as you. Grey's stop being interesting to me after season 3, so I only watched for Alex/Izzie then I was gutted. So I no longer watch)
Ryan/Marissa (OC, I think most people liked him with Taylor though)
Dan/Blair (Gossip Girl only watch their scenes on youtube)
Fi/Mike (Burn Notice)
Parker/Hardison (Leverage)
Cappie/Casey (Greek)
Matt Saracen and anyone (FNL, I just love that character so much so he could have been with anyone.)
Jane/Grayson (Drop Dead Diva, really plays with the soulmate situation)

I have a love/hate feeling with the use of soulmates b/c of SV. I think they used it too much and sometimes it made them lazy. Anytime I hear the word destiny. I get this twitch in my eye. So I like the idea of soulmates but in the dialogue within a story I don't want it verbalized as much. Show don't tell. If you get what I mean. Okay I feel like I just talked way too much.

Date: 2011-07-26 05:10 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] sanalayla.livejournal.com
I also watch a lot of TV, so I think we'll be fine. LOL

Seth/Summer: OH MY GOD... how I could forget the OC??? I shipped these two SO hard core. If I'd known about fanfiction back then, I probably would written it for them. I was also in love with Adam Brody.

Marissa/Ryan? Marissa was the Lana Lang of the OC for me. And, yeah, I shipped him with Taylor. Not that the two ended up together. (Or, at least, it was ambigious.)

Cappie/Casey: Hhhmmm... I'm torn on this one. I actually liked Cappie/Rebecca more together. But I recognized that Cappie/Casey were the OTP and I kept telling myself that I'd screwed in the end. And I was right.

Matt Saracen and Julie kind of annoyed the living daylights out of me about 80% of the time, because I thought she didn't treat him well. But they had some REALLY cute moments like when her dad walks in on them after they have sex. And - in the end - when he proposes to her. So, I was glad he had his HEA.


Date: 2011-07-26 09:39 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] wrennscorpio.livejournal.com
I didn't watch the OC when it first aired on tv. I remember it being my freshman year of college and I was channel surfing and I came across the show and it was the NYE scene between Ryan/Marissa and he was running to kiss her by midnight. I am such a romantic sap that, that scene had me completely in love. So that made me start watching the show and I was hooked. I liked Seth/Summer as well. I haven't watched Smallville season 1-3 ever and probably never will, but I have heard from others how they were like Clana. LOL. Which is funny because I don't care for Clana and that's why til this day I only rewatch Lois episodes. At the time I was devastated when Marissa died so I stopped watching the OC. I let time pass a while and went back and watched Season 4. I always wondered why they made Ryan/Taylor ambigious. There was no need for that.

I think I loved Cappie/Casey so much because of the actors and the interviews I saw them in together. I just loved them and Spencer kept saying that she thought Cappie was Casey's soulmate and all that jazz. I liked all the characters on the show so I wouldn't have been too disappointed.

I loved FNL so much. It hurt me that it was ending. Matt Saracen and Lois Lane are like my favorite tv characters. Out of all the FNL characters Julie is at the bottom. I was happy that Matt was happy but I was really hoping that they would have given him a better love interest.

I think they made Ryan/Taylor ambigious because of the Marissa/Ryan shippers. That way, they could write in whatever ending they wanted (he pined over Marissa until his dying breath). Also, I think they didn't want a pat ending, where all the couples ended up together. They had to put Summer/Seth together (because they were supposed to be soulmate and were the OTP of the show), so I think they left Ryan ambigious.

See, I never watched "Greek" when it was on air. I watched all 6 seasons in a row this summer on Netflix streaming. And the whole "will they or won't they?" got old FAST when I was watching 5 episodes a day.

With Matt/Julie, I had some problems because I felt that Julie was too immature to be getting married. The whole affair with the TA? And quitting school? I just didn't get it. They should have had her go to University of Chicago and then come back & tell them she and Matt decided to get married. Or were just back together. That didn't make sense to me.

For me I had three main ones that I would not entertain or look at any other option, can/will/have talked under water about them to anyone.

1. Lois and Clark. From the movies, comics and TV shows from when I was very young. Mention Lois and I am sold. Mentioned Clark and I am looking for Lois. Them both together, don't care, I am there.
2. Sandy and Danny. Dear Lord I love musicals and I loved this movie and show.
3. Scarlett and Rhett. Gone with the wind. The end.

Then a have a few minors that I like but, I am not invested in the outcome wither which way.

From: [identity profile] sanalayla.livejournal.com
Of course, we're agreed on Lois/Clark. :)

Ahh... Scarlett and Rhett. LOVE THEM. He is SO hot. I always assumed she managed to get back together with him. Did you read the "sequel" that came out in the 90s?

Date: 2011-08-12 08:53 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] nonnahsr.livejournal.com
I did never read the sequel, I couldn't bring myself to do it. My mum read it and said it was bad. Frankly its Mitchell's story to tell and the readers to make up their own ending for my mind.

But I like that you never know if she ever got him back, but her being her she wouldn't stop. Giving up is really not her thing. So I like to think that somehow she did find a way.

Date: 2011-08-18 12:55 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] sanalayla.livejournal.com
It was pretty bad. I mean, well, it was kind just like any old generic romance novel. Nothing really special about it.

It was basically like a published fanfic... I think the ending is open to interpretation. Some folks will think they got together; others won't.

Personally, I think she got him in the end. He was madly in love with her & she wasn't the sort who would ever give up.

Hey, lady! I enjoyed reading about your 'ships. I, too, am a hardcore crazy shipper. I can't help it, I just get drawn into these universes and the romances... they're far better than any romance novel could ever be.

I loved Dr. Quinn and Sully, too. I actual wrote an entry in my diary when I was around 14 full of RAGE over an episode where Mike broke up with Sully because he had feelings for some white girl who had been raised by the Indians. Do you remember that? LOL Good times.

My biggest ships ever, though (the ones I've written fanfic about) have been:

Mulder/Scully. Seriously, I was INSANE about them. Between 1995-2000 I couldn't even hardly talk about anything else. LOL

Chandler/Monica. Like you, I loved their romance. So much better than Ross and Rachel's "On a break" crap.

Ron/Hermione. Yule Brawl. Need I say more?

Luke Skywalker/Mara Jade. Okay, really. I was already in love with Luke myself and then I read about Mara and loved them together. I still am in denial over those later books... I've written the most fic about this pairing.

Clark/Lois. I've loved them for years. As a child I had geckos that I named Clark and Lois. LOL In Smallville I found the perfect manifestations of both characters. I used to read the comics but fell out of them around 2000ish but they always have held a dear place in my heart.

Peter Parker/Mary Jane. But I can't discuss it without going into fits of rage. Damn you, Marvel!!

Anyway, great to be back on your journal, gal. :)

Hey, Ginchy!! *hugs*

I love romance novels (am even attempting to write one), but I do get what you're saying. There is something cool about attempting to figure out what happens after the HEA.

Mulder/Scully: Will you believe that I've never watched X-Files? OK, well, that's an exaggeration. I've watched a few episodes here and there. One that was set in an Amish town. Another one that was set in an haunted house. And one that dealt with the issue of Mulder's sister (I was very lost in that one). Other than that, I haven't seen this show, so I never shipped these two. From what I've heard, it's a good thing. Their ship ended up weird, didn't it?

Chandler/Monica: I know, what was the DEAL with the stupid "on a break" stuff? Why didn't Rachel ever freaking get OVER it??? And how they hell were we supposed to buy their last minute hook up in the final episode?

Ron/Hermione: Yule Brawl. ROFL... that's hilarious. I know, those two are so cute. I love how they finally kiss and Harry's like, "This is it? The moment? What the hell is WRONG with you two? We have a war to fight, people!"

Luke/Mara: OH, so you know who I'm talking about!!! I'm not the only one who sees Luke end up with this girl. To be honest, I read those books on a road trip from Ohio to Texas & I haven't read any other books other than the trilogy. So, I have no clue what happens next.

Peter Parker/Mary Jane: Yeah, I shipped them, too. I remember reading the Saturday morning comics when I was growing up and my favorite parts of the Spiderman strips were the MJ parts.

You know I never really thought about but I'm a OTP cannon shipper too! I think that's the reason I never got into the early years of Smallville and Clana. I kept thinking "but then he leaves smallville and falls for Lois" so why invest in this relationship. I would probably have liked Clana better if they treated it like a first love/ high school type of thing and not a Greek tragedy. :)

I have to agree with all your ships.

Jane Austen was the first fandom I got involved with, and it always Darcy and Lizzy for me. I just can't handle stories that try to put them with other people. I also LOVE Anne and Captain Wentworth. Persuasion is actually my favorite Austen story.

I always read Ron/Hermonie and Harry/Ginny in Harry Potter. I was astonished to find that people actually thought Harry/Hermonie were going to end up together based on the books.

I loved Roswell back in the day,and watched for Max/Liz interaction. I think I've always rooted for the character the show/book was trying to get together, and whey they weren't sure that made for an unhappy me!

Liz/Darcy -- the OTP to beat all OTPs!!

Yeah, I don't get the Harry/Hermione love, either. From the beginning, it really seemed like H/G and R/Hr were being set up. The second Ginny came running in and became utterly silent in "Chamber of Secrets", I was like, "Oh, he's totally going to end up with Ginny."

While the HP books are brilliant, I think we can all agree that JKR was not trying to break new ground when it came to this stuff.

Even setting that aside, H/Hr just seem a little too... what's the word? Serious. They both need people who'll lighten them the hell up. And the Weasleys seem like the perfect people to do it.

You know, i was starting to get worried because now that SV is finished, i started looking to new ships to follow, i thought i was kind of crazy, but now i see i'm not alone! I think most of the ships i follow have to do with the fact that i relate to the women on there. Strong, confident, independent women that do not give a damn about the men. I'm first of all a Star Wars fan since practically birth, i read some of the extended universe books, of course i'm a Luke/Mara shipper, but please, if you haven't read anything more than the Thrawn trilogy, don't read anything else, some of the latest books are... there are no words.
Another ship i throw to the hyperspace: Hikaru(Rick Hunter)/Misa(Lisa Hayes) from Macross (Robotech). I was obsessed when watched Robotech when i was six, and then i searched for the original japanese series (much better, of course).
