Favorite Ships Tag Game
Okay, let’s start a game! Write 10 (or less) of your favorite ships and include a picture or gif of each one. Then tag 10 people who (and whose ships) you’d like to get to know better. Have fun!
This sounds fun, and it’s been a while since I’ve attempted something like this. I bet I’ll leave something important out but here goes. Not in a particular order because that would break my brain.
Jaime Lannister/Brienne of Tarth: The MY HEART IT SO INVESTED ITS GONNA BURST ship. The impact they have had on each other so far is so powerful, so moving, so beautiful. I don’t know where it’s going, exactly but all my heart wants, wants SO bad is at least one sliver of them acknowledging what they mean to one another, and at least one moment of stolen happiness, even if it ends horribly because GRRM.
Han Solo/Leia Organa: My sexual awakening ship. I can still recall the first time I saw them kiss. I was a teenager, watching ESB for the first time and I SWEAR my stomach did a 360 FLIP inside me. It was a profound moment. I like him because he’s a scoundrel. I like the ship because they are so volatile, so strong, equals who drive each other crazy but fall head over heals anyway. I love their sass, their chemistry, their tenderness. They are so compelling to watch.
Stormpilot- Poe Dameron/Finn: The current obsession. They are too pure, too sweet, too lovable. They bring sunshine into the world and I need them together.
Ron Weasley/Hermione Granger: My oldest ship on the list, my first major ship. Realized at 12, with some help from the passionate essays of the internet, that they were meant to be for a million different reasons. I still believe it and I always will.
Ben Wyatt/Leslie Knope: My THIS IS WHAT I WANT ship. Seriously, their relationship is basically perfect. So kind, so loving, so unendingly supportive, full of humor and fun, a willingness to make mistakes right and forgive them of one another, GOSH I WISH THEY WERE REAL AND RUNNING THIS COUNTRY
Harry Lockhart/Perry Van Shrike- My obscure ship. If you’ve never seen Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, I cannot recommend it enough. It is hilarious and charming, just like this weird amazing not-quite-couple who had sizzling chemistry and so many moments for a shipper to cling to.
Lee Adama/Kara Thrace: The Hurts My Heart Ship. I know that Sam was good for her. I know there are a lot of reasons why they didn’t work out, and that maybe that was good. And yet, I really did long for them to find happiness together. The love between them is insanely strong, even if they never could get it right. The loyalty between them, the passion and care, the knowledge of each other’s deep flaws that doesn’t stop them from caring…it’s too beautiful, and I will never stop dreaming of a world where they could have worked it out.
PS Is this not a painfully symbolic image of them? There is love and concern but also BARRIERS and too many challenging feelings and ugh, but even with how sad and deep and tough it is, there’s still humor in this scene. SO CLOSE AND YET SO FAR IT KILLS ME
Dr. Alan Grant/Dr. Ellie Sattler: I can’t think of a title for them. I guess technically they might even beat out Ron and Hermione as my favorite ship, since I started watching this movie when I was 5. Another case of lovely intellectual equals who don’t always agree, but always support each other. I love their relationship, and Jurassic Park III never happened ok bye
Lyra Belacqua/Will Parry These two have such a prominent place in my heart. I don’t know how Mr. Pullman gave us two kids who were TWELVE years old and made me believe in their universe-shattering love with every part of my heart, but he did, and I thank him for that. READ THESE BOOKS, PEOPLE.
Remus Lupin/ Nymphadora Tonks I have recently jumped about the wolfstar ship (really late sailor there, I know) and enjoy it a lot, but I also ADORE these two. Basically Remus is my favorite character along with Ron, and I just to think about him being happy so much. I also love this one because I TOTALLY CALLED IT after OotP and my best friend laughed and judged me BUT I WAS RIGHT AHHAHAHAH
- We’re not friends, you’re the CAG. “Be careful out there”? Our job isn’t to be careful, it’s to shoot Cylons out of the frakking sky. “Good hunting” is what you say. And now one of your idiot pilots is acting like a child and refusing to take her pills. So she either says “Yes, sir” and obeys a direct order, or you smack her in the mouth and you drag her sorry ass down to sickbay and you make her take those pills.
