The first couple i ever shipped was Sapphira and Thorn from Eragon. I didn’t know the concept of shipping then, nor did i understand precisely WHY i wanted the two of them to have a clutch of eggs so badly. All i know is i was fucking PISSED when Sapphira ended up with that rando green dragon whose name i don’t even remember because he was such an insignificant character at the end of the last book, and the narrative handled thorn as just kinda “eh, it’s whatever, don’t worry abt him”
Don’t try to tell me their babies wouldn’t have been purple. pURPLE BABY DRAGONS.
