and a book ship has always a different vibe for me from a show ship

anonymous asked:

i know its nice being ship friendly and stuff but SOMEONE'S POINTING A GUN AT YOU, THEY HATE LEVIHAN AND THEY'RE GONNA KILL YOU IF YOU DON'T CONVINCE THEM OTHERWISE, YOU GOTTA DEFEND LEVIHAN WITH YOUR LIFE, WHAT'D YOU SAY? GO!

You know, that’s a really weird murderer. Anyway, THIS IS FUN! Honestly, i’d be dead already, because i don’t really care about convincing anyone when it comes to shipping. Before i start, i’m gonna state that ANYTHING I’LL SAY HERE IS BECAUSE I’M FIGHTING FOR MY LIFE, DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONAL, GUYS. These will be pretty much the reasons why i ship them. The first part is a bunch of “objective” reasons (well as objective as it can get, because shipping can’t be a totally objective thing) and the other one is personal, so is up to you when to stop reading this. I apologize in advance for my English.

1)      Levi and Hanji are both really interesting and complex characters. He isn’t just a typical shonen badass guy and she’s not a typical crazy scientist. Levi is actually , from my pov, the most caring and selfless character of all SnK, he literally sacrifices himself over and over for the sake of others. Hanji isn’t just this sweet cheerful character, she has a mesmerizing willpower, nothing can stop her.

2)      They complement each other amazingly. They are both strong and smart, but in different ways. Any virtue that Levi doesn’t have, Hanji has it. Every flaw that Hanji has, Levi doesn’t. And they share two really important virtues, which are the foundation of any healthy relationship: they are both so loyal and passionate. They are literally willing to give up their lives for the people they love.

3)      THEIR INTERACTIONS ARE SO FUN TO READ/WATCH. You just know that, whenever they are together, something great is going to happen. There’s something refreshing about them, about their bickering, about the way they work together, about the way they care about each other so deeply.

4)      I think nobody can understand them more than each other. They have experienced similar things as soldiers, they have lost people they love countless times. I bet they could be sharing each other stories all night long, reminiscing all of those good times with Moblit, Erwin and their old squads.

5)      Okay, i won’t force my ship to anyone, but since i’m fighting for my life here, i’ll say i think there are actual canon hints for Levihan. Like the “Levi bathes Hanji” thing, the “we tell each other everything” thing (don’t u dare telling me Hanji clearly said they’re just friends, cuz isn’t that what every Levihan shipper has as a headcanon? The idea of them not admitting their true feelings and say “we’re just friends” ‘cause they’re both awkward dorks), their interaction in ACWNR, their interaction in Shingeki! Chuugakkou, and the “Levihan is similar to Eremika” thing. It’s up to you, random killer, to decide if that means romance or not.

6)      I hate to fangirl here, but HAVE U SEEN THEM? They are both beautiful and would have babies as beautiful and brilliant as them. What a blessing. I love drawing them so much because their character design is gorgeous. Levi with his cold colors and Hanji with the warm colors, they even complement each other in that aspect.

7)      The Levihan fandom is amazing. Besides the fact that there’s no drama and everyone is so kind, I’m pretty sure this is the ship with the funniest fan art. Even the most serious person would smirk even a little bit while scrolling through the Levihan tag. I mean, we’re all about the laughs. All of the other ships usually focus on the classic romantic stuff (i say “classic” , because from my pov there’s nothing more romantic than the OTP having fun ❤). With Levihan, you’ll get from the most intense fan art to the most ridiculous headcanon, it’s so much fun. Some Levihan artists are pretty well known among non Levihan shippers because of that same reason, like @alemanriq, @trash-god or @drinkyourfuckingmilk . I mean, really, if you’re feeling down and need to cheer up a bit, they’re the way to go.

One of the main arguments people have against Levihan is that they’re too different, so it wouldn’t work. They even go as far as saying that Levi doesn’t really care that much about Hanji. My first response is that both Hanji and Levi are highly misunderstood characters. We don’t have to let our personal experience makes us decide what is love and what isn’t. We all show our love in very different ways.

Now heres my second argument to that idea and this is gonna get personal. If you don’t wanna read about my life, skip this.

I think we might be freaking out over nothing. Just because Traci 13 might be in the new season of YJ (and we don’t even know for sure that it’s her) doesn’t mean she will end up with Jamie. YJ always did their own spin on the characters. I mean Conner and Tim should’ve been bffs according to comics and I don’t remember them even talking to each other in s2? And a lot of charactisation of the characters is different from their comic book counterparts. Anyway Traci 13 was a pretty cool character in the comics so I hope they do her justice. I’d love her to have a nice friendship with Jamie.

But I really, really don’t want Jamie or Bart to get romantic interests. Even if Bluepulse doesn’t become canon please don’t pair them up with any female love interests. Romance was always this show’s weak spot in my opinion. It’s usually rushed and the characters don’t have much chemistry together. Strong friendships are the part where this show shines the most.

Also it would be a bit cruel? I’m pretty sure the creators are aware how popular this ship is and how hopeful the fandom is for it to be canon. Bluepulse was all over this site when S2 was airing. And Greg often gets asked questions about this ship. So to put a female love interest between them gives me a bit of a “screw u, no homo” vibe to me.

And look I think creators can do whatever they want with the characters they own. I don’t think fans have the right to demand certian ships becoming canon. But I think it also really depends on the ship in question. If it’s a ship that’s popular but doesn’t make any sense, ofc there is no pressure to make it canon. Especially if it was already established that the characters are straight. Let’s take Birdflash for an example: I love it, I ship it - but I don’t really have any desire for them to be canon. It’s a ship I started loving knowing fully well it’s not going to happen in canon.

See, Bluepulse is a different story because neither of them had a love interest before. Or even showed interest in female characers so far (while both Wally and Dick immedietly showed it - and while yes bi characters do exist and are awesome I knew that’s not what the creators were going for with those two). 

Bart and Jamie went from strangers, distrust and hidden agendas to a nice well developed friendship. There was slow build, there was emotion and a lot of homosexual undertones (Bart is the most touchy feely with Jamie, catching shirtless Jamie when he saved him from the alien pod, awkward hand holding when Bart was nervous and Jamie wanted to keep him still, always somehow sticking together etc. I could go on and on all day).

While Birdflash is a cute fanon ship, Bluepulse actually feels like it could happen. It has the potential to happen - and if I’m being honest a lot more damn development than most canon couples on the show. And that’s why it would be so hurtful to sink our hopes in S3 with some female character coming in between them. And I really wish with all of my heart that Greg and the team see that, see the potential they (knowingly or unknowingly) created for this ship.

My WizardWorld Comic Con 2016 (Chicago) Experience/ I met Danai Gurira!!!

So this was my first time doing anything like this but I was like it’s my birthday month, I didn’t really do anything for my birthday, I have been all about The Walking Dead and the cast, my faves on the show being Danai and Andy (truly though I love them all) so I was like OK I am gonna do this. Then I talked myself out of it and then @fangirlnovel posted she was having a Richonne panel and then I talked myself into it.
