top-otps

possibly unpopular OUAT opinion:

While I loved the touching performances from Morrison and O’Donoghue, and while I still enjoy the show and really like most of the characters, I just can’t call OUAT one of my fav shows or CS my top OTP. Mostly because I just don’t like the storytelling style that A&E have chosen.

My fav stories (tv, movie, books, everything) are focused on long-term character development. And they’ll have adventures and cool twists and turns and fun plots, but at the end of the day you can definitely say that the story is all about the characters.

And I just don’t think I can do that for OUAT. In S1 it was kind of that way, but with each season it has gotten further and further from being a character-focused show and more into being a plot-focused show. The characters and their growth don’t drive the plot, the plot drives the characters and any growth has to be inferred or squeezed in around plot gimmicks. (Actually S4 may have been slightly worse than S5 in this regard, but only slightly.)

So yes, I’m super happy about the OTP true love confirmation. But I’m kind of getting tired and bored of the show putting plot/plot twists/plot gimmicks ahead of a real focus on character and relationship arcs.

So I still like the show. But I can’t really say I love it. Sorry.

Questions:

Do you remember the episode/scene/chapter that you first started shipping 6?

I don’t remember the exact date, but the reason I first started shipping Stony was thanks to the wonderful fics written by @wordsplat (I think the first one I read was Aquatic Love - and I’ve been in love with all of her fics and merpeople AUs ever since XD) and I’ve never really looked back :)

Have you ever read a fic about 2?

SO MANY. 

Has a picture of 4 ever been you screensaver/profile pic/tumblr?

Nope, I tend not to pick one OTP as any screensaver/profile pic/tumblr since I have so many and the ranks are always growing (like when Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out and I was suddenly Stormpilot trash XD)

If 7 were to suddenly break up today, what would your reaction be?

Since the show technically ended without them getting together, I can’t say… but if they had actually gotten together and then broken up, I would be pretty damn upset. As it is, they always get together in fics and never ever break up <3

Why is 1 important?

Merthur is important because it really makes me think about morals and consequences. I don’t just think about how adorable they are together, but also the decisions each one makes - about their actions, about how to treat the other, about why they are motivated to make those decisions - and what those decisions mean for their consciences and for those around them. 

Which one has the strongest bond?

Oh jeez. Captain Swan and Karolsen are the only two couples *actually* together - and Captain Swan definitely has a much stronger relationship (longer, also recently declared TRUE LOVE <3) - but of them all, I’d say either Merthur or Spirk wins, for sheer depth and length of relationship (and no, I can’t choose between the two :P). 

How many times have you watched 10′s fandom?

Technically only once, since the show has only come out with one season over the past year - but I am definitely planning to rewatch it this summer. Especially the crossover episode with the Flash, that was SO PERFECT AND ADORABLE <3

Which ship has lasted the longest?

Again, either Merthur or Spirk, as both span decades rather than merely years or months, despite them never actually getting together canonically :P

How many times, if ever, has 6 broken up?

They never got together in the first place, so never, although arguably Civil War could be considered a break up of their friendship at least - and MAN is it going to hurt…   

If the world was suddenly thrust into a zombie apocalypse, which ship would make it out alive: 2 or 8?

Captain Swan or Johnlock, huh… that’s hard. Depends on whether Sherlock would end up being an asset or a liability - if the former, Johnlock; if the latter, Captain Swan. 

Did 7 ever have to hide their relationship for any reason?

Never got together (sob), so no. Although BOY were they in denial about their feelings for each other, to themselves and to others, so in a way yes :P

Is 4 still together?

Never got together canonically, so no.

Is 10 canon?

FINALLY YES THANK YOU SEASON FINALE <3

If all 10 ships were put into a couple’s Hunger Games, which couple would win?

Uh… finals would end up being between Spirk, Merthur, Captain Swan, Karolsen, Stony and McDanno - honestly not sure who would make it out on top, what with all of the fighting experience/abilities each couple has. 

Has anyone ever tried to sabotage 5?

Technically they’ve never gotten together, so any of their canon girlfriends I guess…

Do you spend hours a day going through 3′s tumblr tag?

Not really - The Losers is a pretty obscure and outdated movie - the tumblr tag is not all that hot :P

If an evil witch descended from the sky and told you that you had to pick one of the ten ships to break forever or else she’d break them all up, which ship would you SINK?

If I absolutely had to pick one (despite the fact that I love and ship them all)… probably Cougar/Jensen, because it has the least amount of proof on-screen and thus the ship most easily debunked and defined as merely bromance. 

I tag @presidenthades, @broken-pumpkin-l-o-v-e, @wordsplat, and @trufflemores. No pressure if you don’t want to, but have fun if you do :D

Reasons why Malec is the 2016′s best tv couple

1) Their first meet.

2) Alec ‘unlocked’ something in Magnus.

3) Alec shared his strenght with Magnus.

4) The way Magnus makes Alec smile.

5) THIS SCENE.

6) Their ICONIC first kiss.

7) Alec couldn’t breathe after Magnus arrived to the wedding.

8) They look happy together.

Top 10 SG1 episodes. ooh or top 10 sam x jack moments

you picked Sam x Jack moments, so (not in any order. Well, actually it’s in chronological order)

1. Children of the Gods 

First meeting. The banter. The eye sex. And then he shoves her through the gate :D

2. Out of Mind

When they stand pressed close to one another. Have I ever mentioned it was the moment I started shipping them? Only a dozen times

3. Divide and Conquer

The whole episode is just a rollercoaster of emotions

4. Window of Opportunity

The kiss obv

5. Beneath the Surface

When they sit together and talk about feelings

6. Red Sky

When he’s right about how the Stargates work. She’s proud

7. Heroes

The hug. I hate the reason, but it’s the best hug

8. Lost City

The scene in his house, the ‘I know’ scene. And the ‘please, Jack’ scene. It’s all in one episode, therefore it’s one moment :P

9. New Order

Got a new job? The first thing to do is to promote your girlfriend

10. Beachhead

The prank THEY pull on Landry. It’s probably the best confirmation of the fact they they’re together

I’d also include the fishing invitations, ‘Death Knell’ sort of hug, “Always” in ‘Threads’, the kiss in ‘Moebius’, the fishing scene, and the looks they give each other in ‘200’

Why Yes I Ship It | The Dahveeds

“There was a time—back years ago, almost a lifetime ago—when Villa couldn’t say it, wouldn’t say it, refused to tell Silva that he loved him and that he thought he was the most amazing person he’d ever met. And so instead, Villa always said what he could: “Nice goal,” and, “I left you a clean towel in the bathroom,” and, “I think you’re a tremendous footballer.” And as time went on, as everything else fell to the wayside, Villa would say it again and again in the hopes that Silva would understand. “I think you’re a tremendous footballer.” [x]

Why Yes I Ship It | Fabsillas

“Cesc is laughing, rolling onto his back so that he can hold his convulsing stomach, and Iker knows it’s stupid, but he doesn’t care. Cesc’s laughter is so pure and so perfect that he just wants to kiss the sound out of his mouth, so he does. He leans over and presses his lips to Cesc’s, enjoying the way his laughter doesn’t subside, but he keeps chuckling into Iker’s mouth, blowing small puffs of air into his body. Small puffs of life… Iker can’t help but think, and yes, that’s exactly it.” {x}
