SHIPPING INFO // answer the following for your muse(s) so people know how shipping works on your blog. REPOST. don’t reblog.
WHAT’S YOUR OTP FOR YOUR MUSE?: I honestly don’t have one, unless you count Arianne x Tyene. Which, before you go “ew gross they’re cousins”, I DON’T MEAN IT ROMANTICALLY. It’s just that these two are so close that they are ( in my interpretation ) practically soulmates, and their bond gives me life. I’m sorry okay, I just had to bring them up. Back to the point, I have only one (1) ship in the very early stages, so I don’t have a romantic OTP. Ty x Ramsay is more of a guilty pleasure than OTP material, anyway.
WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO RP WHEN IT COMES TO SHIPPING?: Pretty much anything under the sun, though Tyene is much more the type for angst-y, toxic and/or abusive relationships than she is for fluffy wholesomeness. For the most part I see her in quick flings without compromise and certainly without closeness, BUT I’d absolutely be down to have her actually fall in love ( she hasn’t ever been in love, not once in her whole life ). That’d be amazing if well-developed.
HOW LARGE DOES THE AGE GAP HAVE TO BE TO MAKE IT UNCOMFORTABLE?: Honestly, I’ve never shipped much so I can’t speak from experience, but ten years or so sounds reasonable as long as both muses are above the age of consent and on equal standings.
ARE YOU SELECTIVE WHEN SHIPPING?: Yes, perhaps even too much so. I hardly ever ship with people, but that’s okay, because I’ve never felt like I was missing out on much… yet on Tyene I want ships but I don’t know where to start, because first and foremost I need to be friends with my shipping partners.
HOW FAR DO STEAMY MOMENTS HAVE TO GO BEFORE THEY’RE CONSIDERED NS.FW?: I prefer not to write smut at all, so I guess I’d do a fade to black as soon as they start undressing, as tame as that may be.
WHO ARE OTHER MUSES YOU SHIP YOUR MUSE WITH?: At this point, only @bastardbranded, and it’s in an AU.
DOES ONE HAVE TO ASK TO SHIP WITH YOU?: Yes, absolutely. I probably ship the thing too if you can see it, but please ask first. I don’t appreciate having ships pushed onto me at all.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU LIKE TO SHIP?: A lot, but I don’t ship half as often. I’m shipping trash, but I rarely ship unless it really gets my attention and, as mentioned, the other mun and I become friends. That being said, I really want some femslash on Tyene. Please.
ARE YOU SHIP OBSESSED OR SHIP MORE-OR-LESS?: I would say I’m ship obsessed, when I do ship.
ARE YOU MULTISHIP?: I suppose I am, yes. But I am also single-ship, meaning I won’t ship with two of the same muse.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SHIP IN YOUR CURRENT FANDOM?: I could say Ned x Catelyn, but to be honest I am in too deep in Martell hell, so I’ll have to say Oberyn x Ellaria ( Doran x Mel is great as well ). Tyene ships them, I ship them, everybody ships them. Then there’s Elia and Rhaegar and Lyanna and all the possible combinations, but more in the sense that I want to know more about them, not in the sense that I think it’d work out. Polyamory definitely wouldn’t work out here, btw. Not even an option to me, sorry.
FINALLY, HOW DOES ONE SHIP WITH YOU?: Unless there is canon for us to work with ( see also: Tyene and Arianne ), I much prefer slow burn. Oh, and communication, and building a friendship as we slowly establish our ship and let their feelings develop gradually. In Tyene’s particular case it’d have to be very gradual, as I mentioned above she’s never been in love and she’d be a Mess™. Still, I’d love to do this.
Can we just talk about how good of a friend Mike is to Will?
I’m sure this has been said before but I’ve just recently rewatched stranger things and I saw something I wanted to bring up. So the scene where eleven makes Troy piss his pants is commonly seen as another badass moment for eleven. I’m not saying it isn’t an amazing moment for her because let’s face it Troy was a little shit and she put him in his place, but I think that scene is so amazing for a different reason.
So Mike overheard Troy and James being insensitive dickheads and talking shit about his “dead” friend. And even though they are his worst bullies, he decides to confront them about it. When he does this, we see Lucas and Dustin staying back more toward the crowd. They may not have heard what Troy and James said but they still were too scared to join Mike in the confrontation. So now we see that Mike is brave enough to stand up to his worst enemies because they made fun of Will.
After more insults fly, Mike decides to get physical and shoves Troy to the ground. It seems like Mike has always tried to avoid getting physical, as earlier that week he told Lucas and Dustin to “ignore them” when they made fun of them. So this shove in itself shows that Mike was willing to go way outside his passive comfort zone because they were making fun of Will.
Once this happens, Troy gets up and charges at Mike. And yeah, had eleven not stopped him, Troy probably could have very easily beat up Mike, but do you know what the best part is? Mike didn’t even FLINCH when Troy came at him. Mike was willing to take ANYTHING if it meant that he was defending one of his best friends.
So yeah eleven was pretty badass for making Troy piss himself but Mike showed an impressive display of true friendship and I don’t think that should go unnoticed.
