hey hey! first of all thanks :)
and yeah, they do, the most common ship name for them is laudia but i’ve also seen laurydia.
and as for why i ship them. first of all, i’m still convinced that this girl from lydia’s dream:
is laura, because it’s the only thing that really makes sense. so while that’s still not really meeting, it is laura being inside lydia’s head and that’s a pretty good jumping off point for me.
but i ship them because of the way i headcanon laura. it’s clear from what we’ve seen of her in canon that she was born to be alpha one day. she was clearly being groomed to follow in talia’s footsteps. and she was clearly already a leader. in the flashback episode we see her in a room full of alphas and when she (a teenage girl who was not yet an alpha) started speaking, everyone turned and listened.
so i headcanon her as someone who is not only a strong leader, but also was born knowing she was destined to be someone great, and i imagine her putting a lot of pressure on herself to try and live up to that. i imagine her always trying to be the best at everything and always be in control.
and that’s a lot like lydia. if you put them together i think they could absolutely take over the world without even breaking a sweat.
but i also love love love shipping things where the people are always butting heads and being stubborn and snarky toward each other and i absolutely imagine that’s the kind of relationship laura and lydia would have. i think they would drive each other up the wall but at the end of the day still know that they mean the absolute world to each other. and that’s my favorite kind of ship.
