I know, this is supposed to be 5 ships, but it seems like most of the fandoms I know don’t have gay couples (wtf?) and I don’t watch TV, so that cuts out a lot of gay ships, lol. But I do have 3, so here we go!
#1: Obi/Qui (also known as Qui/Obi, Jinnobi, and Jedi Husbands)
This is my OTP, and the first pairing I ever shipped, gay or straight. After ten years, my obsession hasn’t ended. In fact, I think it’s just become stronger. What I love about this pairing is the fact that as Jedi, both men are strong, capable individuals. Yet there is a slight vulnerability that you see occasionally, with each of them seeking the other’s advice. I love that they’re united as a team but they are from different generations and so have different beliefs regarding the Force.
Qui-gon is more impulsive and open-minded,
Obi-wan is more reserved and dedicated to the Jedi way.
They’re both very stubborn, and very protective of one another. Also the height difference is adorable, I don’t even know why.
They’re a master-apprentice team, but I believe that they treat each other with equality and honesty. There is also the gentle way in which they interact that lends a hint of very subtle romance to their connection.
Basically, I’m in love with them being in love. :)
#2: Spirk (also known as K/S or Kirk/Spock)
I ship it in AOS and TOS, and of course I believe these nerds get married. I mean, that’s what the old movies are all about, right? ;)
You guys all know my mad love for Spirk (this tumblr makes it pretty clear, lol), so there’s not much to say except WHAT THE HELL WAS I DOING WITH MY LIFE BEFORE STAR TREK? Oh, that’s right. Star Wars, haha. So what I love about this ship is the emphasis on friendship, and the fact that despite misunderstandings, self doubt, and stubbornness, Spock and Kirk were drawn to each other since the very beginning. A universal constant, if you will.
They would do anything for each other, even when that other person is no longer living.
That’s love. Epic love.
#3: Fanille (also known as Fang/Vanille)
Haha, a video game pairing. But they really have a beautiful connection from what I have seen so far (I haven’t finished playing Final Fantasy 13) and I like each of their characters.
Some people think Vanille is obnoxious, but that really is a front for her much more serious side.
It’s widely accepted that Fang is a total bamf and you’d better not get on her bad side, and ESPECIALLY don’t hurt Vanille. You’re pretty much toast then.
Distrusted, they face prejudice and unfamiliar surroundings with bravery. They’re extremely loyal to each other.
