What if your life was a TV show. And you had a whole fandom. What if people shipped you with your friends or your crushes. There was merch of things you say and head cannons. People loved your little quirks and ticks. “Omg or like when they bite their lip when they’re nervous” “what about the way they smile when *insert name* talks to them? They are so in love.” Imagine Tumblr accounts dedicated to you, people loved the way you said things or did things. That would be awesome
<b>Me:</b> Ok so... I found this new T.V show last night and I loved this two characters... so as the fangirl I am I looked for them and OH MY GOD, I ship them so hard!, I even read a fanfic!<p/><b>Friend:</b> Fangirl? Ship? Fanfic?... What are we talking about here?<p/><b>Me:</b> *serious as fuck*: Have a seat, we have a lot to talk about...<p/></p>
can we just stop and take a moment to talk about jack’s smile when angelica says that? it’s the purest thing jack has ever done. I can’t handle him. i wish we could’ve seen more of angelica’s story, and more of her and jack.
I love how in stranger things Mike has a crush on eleven, a bit of a strange awkward girl with a shaved head instead of the typical movie popular pretty girl with flawless skin and flowy hair. I remember being 12 years old and being so self conscious about my looks and thinking no boys would ever think of me as pretty. I’m glad that stranger things broke that stereotype showing that you don’t have to look any one particular way to be pretty.
<b><p></b> <b>Person A:</b> (walking with a group of friends) Bird, bird, bird<p/><b>Person B:</b> (walking by with their friends) Bird is the word!<p/><b>Person A:</b> (awestruck, stopped walking, watches as Person B's group disappears away)<p/><b>Person A:</b> (mumbling) I have fallen in love with this stranger.<p/></p><p/></p>
Okay, so first of all- English is not my first language so there are probably a thousand mistakes here. Secondly, this is my first “fanfic” ever so bare with me haha. I just couldn’t help myself after drawing this picture. I hope you like it!
Mike didn’t think he was ever going to see her again. Over the last few months he almost started to believe what people were telling him. That she was gone forever. That she was dead.
Yet there she stood, slightly hiding behind chief Hopper in Mike’s hallway.
- “El..!” He was in shock. All of the feelings he had felt the day she disappeared, the day she defeated the Demogorgon, the day he kissed her- it all came rushing back as he ran up to her and threw his arms around her in a tight hug. His heart was pounding, both from nervosity and excitement and he could feel tears of relief running down his cheeks, but he didn’t care to wipe them. He didn’t even care that everyone was staring at them. His parents, Hopper, Nancy and Steve. All he cared about was that El was finally here. He held her even tighter before slowly letting go to take a step back. He dried the tears with his sleeve. El was confused.
- “Sad?” she asked.
She looked different, almost hollow. Her hair had grown quite a bit and her skin was pale as snow. She was skinnier than he remembered too. And there was something in her eyes that he had never seen before, as if everything she’d been through since her disappearence had stored up in there, making her look sadder than ever before. But he smiled.
- “No, not sad.”
He hadn’t realized just how much he had missed her, even explaining things to her. He continued. “Sometimes when people are really really happy- they cry. I just… I missed you. A lot. That’s why I’m crying. I’m just happy.”
She slowly nodded to confirm that she understood.
- “I’m happy too.” she said and smiled shyly.
Eleven didn’t leave his side for the entire night. She sat close to him on the couch while they were watching tv, sat next to him at dinner and he could just barely go to the bathroom alone.
When the night came however, Karen insisted she slept on the bed they had put in the basement for her and El reluctantly obeyed. Mike could tell that she was upset, so he ran up to his room to get her the blue sweater she had borrowed when they first met. He had kept it safe in the bottom of his drawer ever since then, just in case she ever got back. She accepted it with an soft smile and went to put it on; and after saying good night, she went to bed. Mike followed her example and went upstairs to his room to do the same.
A few hours passed and Mike was far too excited to fall asleep. All he wanted to do was run downstairs to the basement so he could be with her. Just to see her and make sure that this wasn’t all just one of the dreams he used to have of her returning.
Suddenly he heard a quiet knock on the door. He already knew who it was, or who he hoped it was, when Eleven slowly opened the door with tears of panic in her eyes.
“Mike…” she pleaded.
“You can’t sleep?” he asked, worried from seeing the look on her face.
She shook her head. “I’m scared.”
Without saying another word, Mike moved over to make space for her on the bed and lifted the covers so she could crawl in right next to him. As she lied down he slowly, nervously put his arms around her, protective as always. She moved a little closer to him and he started to fear that his heart was beating so hard it might explode out of his chest. He held her tightly, ran his fingers carefully through her hair and whispered:
- “Don’t you ever disappear from me again, El. Understand? Not ever…”
She could feel the warmth from his body. She finally felt safe. Right there in his arms, the only place in the world she ever wanted to be, she was safe.
- “I won’t.”
She smiled the most genuine smile she had ever smiled.
Post your Top 5 and give reasons if you want to. Ok so I’ll get ball rolling…
5. Peridot x Lapis Lazuli aka LAPIDOT (Steven Universe)
Damn this show has given us a lot of ships but these 2 aliens have given me the most joy in the show thus far. Both of these characters were technically villains at some point in the series (I mean remember when Lapis tried to drown Connie and Steven?) and I always love a good redemption arc but to add potential romance to the mix is always a winner in my book. When the two become roommates Lapis still holds a grudge towards Peri but our favourite space dorito never gives up in trying to make Lapis her friend. Fast forward a few episodes and they have made a home together, they make art together, they nerd out over a Canadian teen drama and now they even have a pet Pumpkin Dog. Steven Universe already has a canon gay couple with Ruby and Sapphire so why not make Lapidot canon? Come on Cartoon Network make 2017 Lapidot’s year!
4. Lincoln Loud x Ronnie-Ann Santiago (The Loud House)
The Loud House was the most pleasant surprise of 2016 for me and a return to form for Nick Toons but this old school peanuts inspired cartoon didn’t just give us a 90s style family sitcom it also gave me one of my favourite ships of the year; Lincoln and Ronnie Ann. Ok so we’ve all seen the school bully likes the protagonist scenario in other shows but it’s rare that the protagonist is so enamoured from the start of the series. The first mention of Ronnie Ann is during a episode when Lincoln is trying to hide the fact that he’s being bullied from his 10 over protective sisters but as soon as they learn it’s a girl they freak out; because everyone knows when a girl bullies a guy she has a crush (Apparently?) and they encourage him to go kiss her which subsequently earns him a black eye from Ronnie Anne (Ah young love)
Throughout the series from this point they have this strange secret relationship as not to lose face amongst friends but they also have some sweet moments, a nice shipping surprise and well worth your support.
3. Poe Dameron x Finn (Star Wars: The Force Awakens)
Ok before you jump down my throat yes I know the Force Awakens came out in December 2015 but this ship really didn’t gain any traction until 2016. Let’s think about the 2 parts of this ship on one hand Poe; charismatic, dashing and all round nice guy. And other hand we have Finn; conflicted, brave and wants a new life. True Finn uses Poe to escape the First Order but in the brief time these two share on screen there is great chemistry between these two plus Poe is the one who gave Finn his name instead of a number. And who can forget this…
2. Mike X Eleven (Stranger Things)
I don’t have a lot a reasons for this one just the fact that they’re cute and if it weren’t for the tremendous performances of these child actors I would never believe in this ship.
1. Nick x Judy AKA WildeHopps (Zootopia)
Was there ever any doubt to what my number one choice would be? This ship works so well nearly everyone who watched Zootopia wondered what Nick and Judy’s baby would look like…wait was that just me? The endless flirting between the two just blows wind into the sails of this ship and it isn’t just a simple disney romance. Judy messes up and really hurts Nick and are both heartbroken by what happened and it isn’t fixed on the same day, they are apart for months and the emotional fallout can still be felt between them. They care for each other, they save each other on more than one occasion and they compliment one another’s personalities. And even after the bad guy is caught, after the city saved and Nick becomes a cop do we get the fairytale romantic ending…NO! We get a goddamn tease but maybe this tease was a good thing because it forged an entire communty to draw fan art, animate short films, write fan fiction and voice in audio dramas. This is not just the best ship of 2016 because of how amazing Nick and Judy are together but because it was the foundation of a fandom.
