Ship: Murphy and Raven

Ohai, anon, I debated between making this in the canon verse or doing a modern setting but in the end canon verse won, lol -

  • Who cooks: both are pretty bad at making something edible out of scratch so they let the rest of their fellow friends do the cooking
  • Who does the laundry and other chores: Raven is chaos everywhere, organized chaos if you ask her, and while Murphy doesn’t touch a thing in her work room, in the room they’re sharing it’s a different story; he also does the laundry (though he never wins against Raven’s work clothes - they will always stay dirty no matter what)
  • How many children do they have: they have a long discussion about children actually; in the end they decide on not having any, simply because they’ve both had shitty childhoods and don’t think they’ll be good parents; that doesn’t stop them from spoiling all the other kids
  • Who’s more dominate: their relationship is constant struggle about who’s on top but it isn’t as much about power as it is who gets to look after the other (because they both can do dumb dangerous shit)
  • Favorite nonsexual activity: Murphy gives Raven full-body massages with a hint of physical therapy that Abby taught him how to do; it’s good for Raven’s lower back and leg and it gets her pretty relaxed; Murphy always looks for an excuse to touch her skin so it’s pretty much a win-win situation; their relationship heavily depends on skinship and touches of any kind - they both crave the closeness and the affection
  • Their favorite place to be together: in her work room - nobody bothers them there (except Wick from time to time) and Murphy likes watching her create things with her hands; he often uses the time to grab a quick nap as well; Raven usually protests his presence but always smiles when he starts playing with some of the wire and the bolts laying around
  • Any traditions: they rarely get drunk but when they do, they usually share depressing stories about their mothers - it gets pretty sad but by the morning they both feel lighter; on a more cheerful note, they have the best snowball fights ever - Murphy never goes easy on her because of her leg (for which she’s grateful) and besides, Raven cheats (she might have build something like a snowball gun)
  • Their “song”: R u mine? by Arctic Monkey - both are little insecure that the other will not leave them and they have hard time coming to terms with the fact that while other people have betrayed them and left them behind, neither Raven nor Murphy have any intentions of doing so 
  • What they do for each other on holidays: Murphy takes her to abandoned depots and bunkers he had stumbled upon previously and lets her freak out over the pieces of technology that can still be salvaged; Raven makes modifications on his gun and walkie-talkie; they have sex, lots of it 
  • Where did they go for their honeymoon: they never had a ceremony, but they did get a weird Grounders’ ritual and got tribal tattoos out of it; afterwards, they spent few days in one of the little wooden houses adjusted for bonded couples
  • Where did they first meet: their very first meeting was on the Ark, little before Murphy had been sent to jail, unfortunately or not, neither of them really remembers it
  • Any pets: while they were doing the ritual, they received a gift from the Grounders - a hunting bird (Clarke swears it’s some type of an eagle); Murphy takes the bird with him when he’s out scavenging or hunting, the rest of the time the bird likes to pick apart some of Raven’s shinier creations
  • What do they fight over: Murphy’s cold-heartedness, the way he can keep grudges, his thirst for revenge over people that have wronged him, the way he would pull back from Raven and try and push her away, his guilt over her leg; Raven’s inability to accept his help when she’s clearly struggling, her stubbornness, the way she could get swallowed by her projects and forget to eat or go to bed, her deep infested fear that she lets everyone she loves down
  • Do they go on vacations, if so where: no vacations for them but when they’re not busy they go on 1-day trips to explore the terrain and enjoy the nature (you’d be surprised at how fast Raven can walk despite her leg - with some modification on Wick’s brace and with her cane she can walk almost normally)

send me a ship and I’ll answer the questions above
