Another Collection of AUs the Internet Doesn't Need (by me)
• It’s 10:30 at night and I left my glasses at home so I can’t read any of these labels and you’re one of the only people in the grocery store and GODDAMMIT DO YOU HAVE ANY TOMATO SAUCE WITHOUT CHUNKS AU
• We go to the same support group; I have social anxiety and you’re a kleptomaniac who sorta stole my heart AU
• You thought you were alone at the bus stop so early in the morning so you started passionately singing Fall Out Boy but your Patrick Stump impression could use some work and I’m not really afraid to point that out AU
• I’m an artist and you have a really nice face so would you mind if I drew you? AU
• We’re rival up-and-coming singers and every time one of us releases a new single the other does a cover to try to make it better; we’re always trying to top each other and out-cute each other, but half our fans aggressively ship us; our agents use this to their advantage and decide we should do a duet because it’ll be popular; unfortunately now that we’re in the same studio and I’ve seen what you’re like I really wanna know what your lips feel like AU
• PLEASE I REALLY CANNOT FIND MY CAT AND I KNOW IT’S THREE A.M. BUT NEIL CATRICK HARRIS AND I WOULD BOTH APPRECIATE THE HELP AU
• We were both stood up for dates at the same nice restaurant so we decide to eat together and split the check but I dunno you’re pretty interesting aside from your distractingly enormous eyebrows AU
• We met at a mutual friend’s cheesy masquerade party and we agree that the only good thing about this party is the masks so you can’t judge a book by its cover only now that we’ve been talking I want to see your face but I don’t know how to ask AU
• You used to date my friend who absolutely hates your guts after a messy breakup and now you’re flirting with me and I really shouldn’t be so interested in you but I am AU
• I don’t know you but you’re singing along really loudly near me at this concert and it’s kinda hilarious because you just make up things when you don’t know the words AU
• We pass each other every day while we’re biking on the same path so we’ve started smiling at each other and one day you’re stopped because you’re having an asthma attack so I offer you my extra water bottle and now we’re talking and now I’M the one who’s breathless AU
Now, I’m a Zutara shipper through and through, but I’m going to give you my reasons as to why I have sympathy for a Kataanger. My condolences to you
from an outsider.
Honestly, I feel for the Kataang fandom. I honestly, truly do. If I had my otp, my ship destroyed with horrible writing, I’d probably be wrathful as well. I’ve been trying to put myself in a Kataanger’s shoes lately
trying to put myself in their frame of mind.
I’m trying to imagine a world where my otp ended up together in the end. Although instead of them being happy and truly in love, their marriage was broken. On the outside, Aang and Katara could have appeared to be the perfect couple, but you know on the inside they were hurting. They had to have been.
Aang and Katara had 3 children. THREE. Yet only one was really focused on
Tenzin. And for the sole reason being he was born an air bender.
Now, it’s clear in The Legend of Korra that his other children
Kya and Bumi
were pretty ignored by their father. Their father, the Avatar, who should have been an amazing father to all of his children despite them not being air benders, were completely and utterly neglected.
Imagine a world where your literal favorite couple weren’t actually your favorite anymore because they were written so terribly within The Legend of Korra. A world where Aang was a legitimate terrible father and husband. Kya states at one point that he was never home. Either never home or off with Tenzin or their “Airbending journeys”. Bumi is also a bitter old man™ due to being ignored (especially since he was a non-bender until the writers fucking with the spiritual aspect of the show and magically made him an airbender) (remember when he was in front of Aang’s statue wishing he could have made him proud?) (yeah).
They literally turned Aang from ultimate fav to abandoning father. They literally wrote him out to basically not care about his other children and it makes my heart ache for everyone involved.
It makes my heart ache thinking that they wrote it in a way that Katara basically was just letting this all happen. Now, we all know Katara
were with her through everything. Knowing Katara, we would pretty much know that she would not allow someone, especially Aang, to treat her children like that. She has always been strong willed and passionate about those for whom she cares about. Do you really, honestly think she would let Aang, allow anybody, to treat their children like that? It makes me sick. They got everything wrong.
I’m so sorry they didn’t give Katara basically any character development from the time the show ended, to the time she was an old woman. I’m sorry she was made into a trophy wife of the Avatar. I’m sorry we didn’t get to see any of her in any flashback in The Legend of Korra for god only knows why.
I’m sorry that we didn’t get to see any of her accomplishments throughout the rest of her life since the war. They were…what, exactly? We don’t know because she was given no characterization within TLOK. She was given no depth and we got 0% backstory on her and her accomplishments. We were all left to assume that all she was left doing was taking care of Aang’s children of whom he didn’t even treat correctly unless they were an airbender. And there’s nothing wrong with her taking care of her children, but there is something wrong when that’s all she was left doing when we know she was capable of so much more.
Honestly, what was Bryke™ thinking when writing their story in The Legend of Korra? They literally gave Kataang the worst ending possible and I can’t stress my apologies enough. They truly ruined your ship.
And that’s why I feel for you all. You all honestly deserved better. You deserved a better characterization of both Aang and Katara. They all deserved better.You all deserved better and I’m so sorry that your ship was reduced to such a tragedy.
And as a Zutara shipper, it was important to me to stress the fact that I don’t hate the ship Kataang, I just hate what it was reduced to.
Case in favor of fictional superior/subordinate relationships: Roy and Riza from FMA, my #1 OTP. ;-;
yE SSSS PER f ECT EXAMPLE!!!!
But see, this is exactly what I mean: Riza and Roy not only knew each other before they developed a professional relationship (making them peers), said relationship is clearly not one where Roy has all the power. He is her superior, yes, but she has ZERO qualms about calling him out on his bullshit when it’s warranted.
Even better: he wants her to.
1000/10 ship, would reccomend over and over again. Perfect example of Superior/Subordinate ship done right (small wonder; is there anything FMA didn’t get right?).
Okay, first Franticshipping is my fave shipping in pokespe, not just because cute but also i think this is the only shipping that really canon? (if i’m wrong about this i’m sorry). this shipping is have their best moments for me
like in the ORAS chapter when sapphire said sorry to ruby that they can’t watch the show together…
“A hundred plus years, and there’s only one thing I’ve ever been sure of. You. Hey, look at me. I’m not asking you for anything. When I say I love you, it’s not because I want you, or because I can’t have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try… I’ve seen your kindness, and your strength, I’ve seen the best and the worst of you and I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You’re a hell of a woman. You’re the one, Buffy. ”
For those of the uninitiated, Atomic Mangos, (or mango mom) hit 10k followers. She must still be trying to rack that in, and understandably so. But why would anyone doubt she’d pull this off? I mean, look at the picture here ^^.
This is my favorite piece she’s done. It’s a Starco picture (obviously). It is Star and Marco, happily dancing in elegant attire. I love the expressions and look of it all. It just seems like one of those perfect Starco pics, let alone fan-arts. Something so simple as an OTP sharing a dance with loving smiles on their faces works so well here, and that’s exactly why it speaks to me so much: it’s so simple, but effective.
And that’s not the only instance of this kind of thing: she has done this multiple times, all of which are just as effective. If you haven’t followed her yet, I suggest you get on that. She’s a great artist, as well as a great person. Here’s to you, Mango Ma. Congrats.
Am I the only one who ships pretty much everyone with anyone in voltron
Like Keith & Lance ? Hell yeah. Shiro & Matt ? Oh my God YES please. Shiro & Allura ? Sweet. Pidge & Hunk ? They’re made to be. Shay & Hunk ? Too adorable to handle. Shiro & Kieth ? Fucking OTP man. Shiro & Keith & Lance ? Perfect. Any. fucking. ship. I 300% support it. I’m ridiculous
But on the other hand when it comes to pairings I’m happy with everything the fandom or the show will ever throw my way
I used to love characters who were relatable and with potential to be good, but also, some of them made a lot of bad/awful decisions (fictional T.E. Lawrence, Claude Frollo, Elisabeth from Les Enfants Terribles, + some less ‘problematic’ ones including Terry Doolittle from Jumpin’ Jack Flash (seriously tho, such an underrated movie???) and Jane Hudson from Summertime). And I loved real life people who I just could take as role models because they were awesome, such as Michael Palin, Christopher Lee, Richard E. Grant, Peter Capaldi and others.
Funny thing is that at first I thought that MFU was just a perfect show for me, because it’s funny, has basically everything I like, has the perfect and best in the world OTP, idealistic, both smart and silly, loves people, is bipolar etc etc. And only later I found that one (or a combination of character+actor) person who I can love for both of my favourite reasons in it.
Idk if you're still accepting some for the ask meme but if yes, then 2, 6, and 20 xD
Yiisss, just took me some time, but here it goes <’3
2. Talk about three of the most important ships throughout your life.
Since this was probably my very first OTP, I’d have to mention InuYasha x Kagome. Man, I loved them so so so damn much in my teenage years, like… I mean, they made me feel butterflies in my stomach I’mnotevenjoking. I would just lie in my bed and think “Omg why are they so perfect”. I used to draw them a lot too! <’3 My first doujin attempt ever was an Inuyasha one ww
Aaand since my very first homo OTP is important too… gotta mention Kakuzu x Hidan (Naruto). You know, I used to HATE yaoi… really like, just HATED IT. But then… I came across
Rauhreif’s art and… at first I only liked the way she drew Hidan, and then his passive face expressions, and then Hidan on top of Kakuzu and then… I came across one of her doujins and while I was quite grossed out at first (it was a heavy one, tentacle rape and everything), months later I found myself searching for that one doujin again and the second time I read it I was like “Yup yup I like dis shit”. I think that changed my life forever ahah.
And of course, Lawless x Licht. Aside from the fact that I love their development as characters and as a pair, I’m really grateful of all the awesome people I’ve met because of this ship (starting WITH YOU THUNBER, I KNOW YOU’RE READING THIS). And because they’ve made keep drawing like crazy. The first time I made a proper doujinshi, it took me 3-4 months to finish 34 pages (a KiKuro one); Now, I made a 53 pages doujin in a month, all because I wanted to finish on time for Licht’s birthday :’) And while I may not be the best, I love that they inspire me not to stop and just keep drawing like nothing else mattered
6. How do you feel about love triangles?
Not really my jam but I’m ok with it x) I’ve had a couple of OT3s before though~ But mostly because I like A x B & C x B. In those cases, I never like A x C. I guess I have a hard time picturing how a threesomes actually works…
Wait, is “love triangle” and “threesome” the same thing? x’DD
20.Talk about a ship you feel alone in shipping.
There’s probably more than one, but only this one comes to mind: Rei x Haruka, from Free! Ugh, too many people fighting over MakoHaru vs RinHaru, and a lot of people having Reigisa on a pedestal… I don’t think ReiHaru was never even a thing in that fandom. I really really liked Rei at first, and I love how he admired Haruka so much that he got into swimming after watching him practice. They soothe me together :’)
favorite male character(s): Will Gardner (RIP); Eli Gold; and Cary Agos

Connor pulled the blanket over his face trying to adjust to the light. It was only 6 am and the previous night had been a long one at the office. He tries to go back to sleep but hears crying in the distance.
He pulls the blanket off his face and mumbles his husband’s name.
Oliver was snoring beside him, not a muscle to be moved
“Ollie, honey” he whispered nudging him softly
“Huh-what?” he asked groggily
“The babies-they’re awake”
Oliver smiled “So go get them then”
“But it’s your turn” he mumbles. “besides they like you better” he smiles
Oliver smirked “They do not”
“Do so” he whispered pulling his husband’s ear with his lips “But I’ll get them”
Connor, lazily got out of bed and walked into the nursery where he could hear one of the twins fussing.
Oliver smiled as he pulled the sheets over his face but he heard his phone buzz next to him. Crap, he thought. Seeing the date on his phone. It was Valentine’s day and he had completely forgot. He began to worry his bottom lip in between his teeth. Normally Oliver was the one to over do it on such occasions but with being new parents and both of their jobs being so successful and demanding it had completely slipped his mind. He turned to his side to check the internet for any flower deliveries available for a last minute surprise and found a sweet little mom and pop shop just 4 miles away.
“H-Hi. This is Oliver Hampton. I know it’s last minute but I was wondering if you had any bouquets left for delivery. You see- it’s mine and Connor’s first Valentine’s day with a family and I wanted to do something special for him but we have new twins and it completely slipped my mind.” he rambled.
The lady on the other line seemed to chuckle lightly at Oliver’s panicked voice. “Not to worry sir, we have lots of flowers that will suit your needs. What did you have in mind?”
A wave of relief hit him,“Uh-I would like to do 6 yellow and 6 red roses if possible.”
“Excellent!” she chimed. “We can have them delivered within the next 2 hours.”
“Yes! Perfect, thank you so much.”
“Of course sir. Would you like to add a note?”
Oliver went silent for a moment to see if Connor was listening at the door. But when he heard his voice coming from the twin’s room he began to speak “Can you write; “Happy first Valentine’s day to my best friend, the father of our beautiful children and the love of my life.”
Oliver swears he heard the lady choke back a tear. “Very well sir. We’ll have them delivered by 10am.”
“Thank you! Happy Valentine’s day to you!” and clicked off.
Connor dimly turned on the bedroom light trying not to blind the babies and yawned at their side.
Kian was already up, kicking his feet demanding attention.
“Well good morning handsome” he cooed picking him up out of his crib and wrapping his arm underneath his tiny little legs and the other around his head “Why are we being so fussy huh? He whispered bouncing him gently. Is someone trying to wake up sissy?”
Kian just looked up and smiled. Connor pressed a kiss to his cheek as he rubbed his back but he wouldn’t stop kicking his feet. “Are you hungry buddy? Is that why you’re being so grumpy?” Kian let out a little whine which Connor took to mean yes.
Sophia was still fast asleep with her little arms and legs under her blanket so Connor took Kian to the kitchen to heat up his bottle.
He pulled the formula out of the cabinet and starting looking for a pot. He always found it slightly annoying how Oliver never let him use the microwave.
It made everything so much faster, but one day, Oliver found an article online saying how the microwave had harmful rays that can get into your food so needless to say they never heated the baby food in the microwave from then on.
He finally found a pot added a scoop of formula to the simmering water and let it warm up.
Kian reached his hand out for his bottle and Connor smiled “I know little man-I know. Just a few more minutes” he assured increasing the temperature slightly. Kian bounced in his arms until the formula was ready. He then poured it into a bottle and tested it on his forearm before giving it to him.
Kian drank every last drop, thirstily, in a span of 5 minutes.
He waited for Kian to push the bottle away and then tossed it into the sink, lifting him back up onto his shoulder and rubbing his back to burp him.
Connor looked at the clock on the wall, it was almost 6:45am “Should we go wake up daddy?” he asked. Kian seemed to like the idea because he reached out an arm in the direction of their bedroom.
Connor tread quietly into the bedroom and crawled onto his side of the bed, putting Kian on his stomach next to Oliver. Oliver’s face was covered with a bed sheet as he fake snored.
Kian stilled for a moment, readjusting to the new space, grabbing the bed sheet.
Oliver helped pull the cover off his eyes and Kian’s eyes went wide turning to face Connor
“Who’s that?” Connor said stroking his cheek with his knuckle.“Is that daddy?” The little man’s eyes went wide and a smile fell upon his mouth. He reached out his fingers and grabbed Oliver’s nose.
Oliver turned up to kiss his palm “Hi buddy!” he whispered lifting him up to blow kisses on his stomach.
“Who’s got the cutest little belly in the world?-You do (he kisses)-yes you do baby boy” The little man giggled for him.
Just as Connor gave Oliver a good morning kiss he heard Sophia crying.
“Uh-oh” Oliver gasped softly. “I think someone’s sisters awake.”
Connor pecked Oliver one more time for good measure and hopped off the bed to go get their daughter.
Sophia had pulled the blanket off of her and started crying. Wiggling her tiny body reaching up to be held. Connor picked her up into his arms and kissed her hair.
Sophia nuzzled her head underneath his chin and scrunched her legs into his chest. He felt her put his tank top in her mouth and chuckled “Someone’s hungry, let’s go get your bottle.”
Connor disappeared into the kitchen with Sophia while Oliver stayed in bed with Kian.
Kian began to fuss in his arms “How about we play a game. He smiled. Yea? Wanna wrestle daddy? He laughed.
Kian’s eyes went wide with a smile as Oliver bounced him on his stomach, arms wrapped around his neck pretending to be tackle and Kian giggled for him. Just as he was about to get up he heard the doorbell ring. “I wonder who that could be?” he cooed leaving a trail of kisses on Kian’s face.
“Connor honey, will you get that? Kian won’t let me get up.”
“Got it!” he answered opening the door to their apartment.
“Delivery for Connor Walsh?”
Connor froze “Omg. It’s Valentine’s day isn’t it?”
The man smiled sweetly “Yes sir. Are you Connor Walsh?”
Connor pauses for a second completely caught off guard “Y-yes. Thank you!” He reaches into the change tray to give the man a tip and bids him a good Valentine’s before closing the door. He holds the bouquet steadily trying to balance a thirsty Sophia and roses without falling. He enters the bedroom and gives Sophia to Oliver still in complete shock.
“Ollie-” he whispers on the verge of tears
“Yeah babe?” he smirked
“How did you-when did you? Why?”
“Because it’s Valentine’s day goofball.”
Connor pouts his lip “I know but-but I totally forgot and I didn’t get you anything.” he sighs putting them on the night stand and crawling into bed.
Oliver sits up gently trying not to startle Sophia in his arms and leans in to kiss his husband. “That’s not true. He whispers, looking down at his baby girl and son just feet away. You’ve given me everything, Connor. You’ve given me our amazing life and our beautiful twins. That’s all I’ll ever need.”
Connor couldn’t help but stare in awe. He never thought he could love someone so much, he lets the tears fall from his eyes as he leans in to give Oliver a slow tender kiss. “Happy Valentine’s Day Ollie.”
Oliver leaned into it, his heart completely content “Happy Valentine’s Day Connor.”
