Out of all your OTPs what are your top10 (in order) ?
1. Kim Shin and Eun Tak, Goblin: The Lonely and Great God
I keep saying this but very rarely do couples from new shows become my OTP, I have them as number one because I haven’t had this kind of reaction to any other ship. I would cry days after the show’s finale when I would just hear a song from the show’s OST. There is so much earnest and sincere emotion between them and Gong Yoo and Kim Go-eun have great chemistry, their relationship was tragic in a really beautiful way and cute in the most heartbreaking way, their bickering was done with so much conviction and the pain at whenever they separated was felt deeply. Like I believed in this couple.
2. Stefan and Elena, The Vampire Diaries
I don’t think I really need to explain why SE is one of my top OTPs since so much of this blog is dedicated to going into detail as to why that is; in a nutshell, they have that soulful, passionate, transcendental love that is nuanced and complex and rarely seen.
3. Jax and Tara, Sons of Anarchy
This is a ship that’s rooted in chemistry because their romance isn’t logical or rational, there is so much danger and pain and violence surrounding them, anyone in their right mind wouldn’t be involved with Jax and his mother and his club but the pull between him and Tara is undeniable, it’s a pull that’s existed even though they were apart for 10 years and their love is passionate and it takes them to dangerous, destructive places but it’s heartfelt and overwhelming and not many people can pull off that kind of dynamic.
4. Mickey and Ian, Shameless
Like I said last night, I thought the saying “I love you so much it hurts” was stupid until I was introduced to Gallavich because there is such a wholehearted affection for each other that it’s almost like neither of them can breathe yet at the same time their relationship acted as a breath of fresh air. It’s the one ship that I thought was redemptive and toxic at the same time and Noah and Cameron have such intense chemistry, the angst between them is insane and I think they manage to show the struggle Mickey has with being gay in a way that was heartbreaking to watch without it being sappy and cliched and that made you feel so bad for both him and Ian so that when he finally embraces who he is, it’s like the best thing in the world. And the way Mickey cares for Ian is so unique to Mickey like it’s softhearted and violent and it’s just, this ship is a study in contrasts and it works, which is very hard to do.
5. Noah and Rosalee, Underground
Noahlee is another ship that’s new but that I ship passionately because first of all Aldis and Jurnee have great chemistry, the minute they’re in a scene together in the pilot, those longing gazes were enough for me, second of all I always love seeing young black couples onscreen, third of all, within the context of their lives and of the show — which is a show about enslavement and about the various avenues taken to combat the institution of enslavement — the fact that they fell in love is revolutionary, the fact that white supremacy didn’t beat out their will to have affection for each other is a subversive act in it of itself. Related to that, Noah is a very passionate character, a very strong character who believed in Rosalee, believed she could and would do great things before even she realized she had the strength to do so and his drive inspired her while loving Rosalee provides Noah with a sense of peace and hope.
6. Crixus and Naevia, Spartacus and Sura, Agorn and Nasir, Spartacus
I have all three ships in the same number because I love them all equally but differently. The Spartacus series portrays such passionate ships.
Crixus and Naevia,
I really enjoyed them because they’re such a pure romance; when we’re introduced to Crixus he’s legit a dick and the only thing he cares about is glory and honour and being the best gladiator and he falls in love with Naevia and is given more complexity and he’s softer because of her.
Spartacus and Sura
are tragic and you don’t see much of their relationship and what you do see is mostly in flashbacks because they were separated, both sold into slavery, but Spartacus refuses to die because he wants to see Sura again and he starts a rebellion because of her, he loves her absolutely that he’s unable to love any other woman, like it’s intense.
Agorn and Nasir
were a ship I didn’t think I would pay much attention to because I didn’t really care for either character but Agorn and Nasir loved each other so fiercely, like I dare anyone to try and tear us apart and the devotion between them was extremely intense plus Dan and Pana had great chemistry.
7. Oz and Willow, Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Willow is the character I relate to the most in Buffy so my friends and I always joke about how I’m waiting for my Oz because Ozillow was unbelievably adorable, I love them so much. Alyson and Seth had a chemistry that surprised me, I didn’t think that it would be as natural and at times intense as it was but they’re just such a feel-good ship.
8. Jackie and Hyde, That 70s Show
I don’t think anyone expected the awesomeness that is Jackie and Hyde. Mila and Danny worked really well together and I think you really got the sense that they cared deeply for one another while at the same time having the capacity to really aggravate each other and just by nature of being polar opposites who happen to care about each other, they got each other to grow — Jackie became less vain and less domineering while Hyde actually became more vulnerable and less stubborn, they were actually perfect and the writers fucked it up and I will be forever salty about that.
9. Jane and Michael, Jane The Virgin and Jim and Pam, The Office
I have them both on the same number because I love them equally for the same reasons.
Jane and Michael
Pam and Jim
Jichael and Jam are both relationships in which the two people just click, they just get each other, they’re on this other plane that no one can reach and they have an intimacy and implicit knowledge of each other that isn’t the breathless intense, angst-ridden dynamic that I love but it’s as profound and significant.
10. Scott and Kira, Teen Wolf
I know Scallison is the favourite and I do love Scallison but I don’t know, Scira has a groundedness to them that I respond to more and they’re a very physical ship; a touch from Kira can still Scott’s hand or still him to calmness
that his eyes stop glowing; holding Kira allows her to decompress and be
comforted, she can close her eyes in relief and in security, and the
way Scott and Kira run towards each other, it’s almost magnetic,
like they’re being pulled together and have no choice to
connect. And of course their sexual chemistry is kind of insane. But
that’s the thing with Scira, there’s a gentle intensity to them because
it’s like they finally achieve calm from the crazy supernatural mess
when they’re touching each other or in one another’s arms or kissing
each other, which makes their relationship physically intimate.
Vince and Jess and Matt and Julie, Friday Night Lights
2014 Favorite Couple of All Time #2: Nagron (Agron/Nasir)
Agron and Nasir are number two for many reasons and just as spectacular as Janto. Agron saved Nasir from slavery and showed him how to survive as well as love. Over time Nasir grew into a fierce warrior and just as fierce man. In turn Nasir saved Agron and showed him there was life after his brothers death. He showed Agron how to love and to be gentle and how to enjoy life. They have proved their love is great they will do anything for each other. Agron sticks up for Nasir and is also very possessive and when Nasir was hurt Agron healed him back to health with tender love and care. When they fought despite the fact that he had every opportunity to be with Castus the pirate he wasn’t and stayed faithful to Agron. When Agron was captured and nailed to the cross and believed to be dead Nasir fought one of the men that helped him get captured to the death. When Agron came back alive and less than whole Nasir healed him back to health with tender love and care. These two got the happy ending they deserved.

DO YOU REMEMBER THE EPI/SCENE/CHAPTER THAT YOU FIRST STARTED SHIPPING 6?

YOU EVER READ A FIC ABOUT 2?
Jamie x Claire: Surprisingly, no, I have not read any fics about them
HAVE A PICTURE OF 4 EVER BEEN YOUR SCREENSAVER/PROFILE PICTURE?
IF 7 WERE TO SUDDENLY BREAK UP TODAY, WHAT WOULD YOUR REACTION BE?
Huddy: Well, they are no longer together anyways… I think I remember that when they broke up, I was screaming at my tv
WHY IS 1 SO IMPORTANT?
Nagron: So, you know what they say about lgbtq characters and ships. That they first use their relationship and sexuality to spice up the show and then they kill them. This isn’t what happened with this ship. Nasir and Agron both had a great character development and even though we got a few very graphic sex scenes, they didn’t tone their arcs down at all. Also [spoiler alert] they were the only rebels (who were also warriors) to survive the fall of Spartacus and the victory of the Romans.
.WHICH ONE HAS THE STRONGEST BOND?
Hm, while I aknowledge the fact that some have a stronger bond than others, I cannot really tell which one has the strongest…
HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU READ/WATCHED 10’S FANDOM?
Lorenzo x Clarice: Well, I’ve watched the whole show only once and now that it’s over, I am searching for gifs, pics and fanart of those two
WHICH SHIP HAS LASTED THE LONGEST?
To me, I think it is Huddy. I’ve been shipping them since my early teens. In canon, I think it’s Cherik
HOW MANY TIMES IF EVER HAS 6 BROKEN UP?
Giuliano x Vanessa: Hm… this is a bit complicated… They were flirting a lot at the begining, then they had sex once and then [spoiler aler] he got assassinated and died in her arms…
IF THE WORLD WAS SUDDENLY THRUST INTO A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE WHICH SHIP WOULD MAKE IT OUT ALIVE, 2 OR 8?
Jamie x Claire vs Leario: I am sorry Jamie and Claire and everyone in the Outlander fandom, but I am gonna go with Leario. We’ve seen what kind of miracles they can achieve when they team up…
DID 7 EVER HAVE TO HIDE THEIR RELATIONSHIP FOR ANY REASON?
Huddy: I think they had to, because they were also working together…
IS 4 STILL TOGETHER?
Leoaster: Yes they are :) Well, not in a romantic way (@STARZ you fuckin’ had one job!) but yeah, they stayed together until the end
IS 10 CANON?
Lorenzo x Clarice: Yes :) Both on the show and historically
IF ALL 10 SHIPS WERE PUT INTO A COUPLE’S HUNGER GAMES WHICH COUPLE WOULD WIN?

Gendrya: Yes (Melisandre) and she was pretty successful -_- )
WHICH SHIP WOULD YOU DEFEND UNTIL DEATH AND BEYOND?
All of them okay??
DO YOU SPEND HOURS A DAY GOING THROUGH 3’S TUMBLR PAGES?
Cherik: Yes and I am not even sorry
IF AN EVIL WITCH DESCENDED FROM THE SKY AND TOLD YOU THAT YOU HAD TO PICK 1 OF THE 10 SHIPS TO BREAK UP FOREVER OR ELSE SHE’D BREAK THEM ALL UP FOREVER WHICH SHIP WOULD YOU SINK?
I cannot believe I am doing this, but I am gonna go with Huddy, since they have already broken up :/ I mean yeah, my beloved House deserves happiness, but as we saw on the show, he wasn’t his happiest when he was with Cuddy, but when he was with Wilson…
