Ship meme yay!
First fill this out:

1) Kira/Odo (I'm into DS9 right now, what can I say)
2) Adama/Roslin
3) Harry/Murphy
4) Aral/Cordelia
5) Ian/Barbara
6) Sam/Sybil

7) Doctor/Rose
8) Mal/Inara
9) Cal/Gillian (Lie to Me)

10) The Middleman/Wendy
11) River/Jayne
12) Eleven/Anyone

13) River/Amy
14) Ryan/Esposito


1. Why do you dislike #11 (River/Jayne) so much?
That would be because it squicks me. Also, because I find it rather hard to ship Jayne with anyone. He seems like the type to happily screw anyone who offers, but actual relationships freak him out. Just doesn't work in my head.

2. Who do you know that ships #13 (River/Amy)?
Uh, half the fandom? Actually, just me, and maybe a couple other people I know. It just works in my head, what can I say?

3. What would be your ideal scenario for couple #3 (Harry/Murphy)?
The Dresdlet verse. Obviously. Or, really, anything in which they can be bickery and married and have sex and fight evil together. But mostly, the Dresdlet verse.

4. What is your favorite moment for #1 (Kira/Odo)?
Currently? The moment where That One Guy is hitting on Kira and she introduces Odo as her lover, because his WTF face must be see to be believed. Or maybe the moment where she brings him flowers, and he goes on about how his new quarters are such a lovely private place to get away from everyone, and she suggests that maybe she shouldn't be in them and he goes, "Oh, not you, you don't count." Or maybe when the Defiant was blowing up and Odo had that weird drawing but he wouldn't leave without Kira. I have lots of favorite moments.

5. How long have you been following couple #6 (Sam/Sybil)?
I read Fifth Elephant first of all the Discworld books, so... forever? As long as I've been reading Discworld, anyway. Adore them.

6. What's the story with #8 (Mal/Inara)? What made you stop caring?
I think I just got over the whole will-they-or-won't-they. I was never that into them in the first place; I was always more interested in Simon/Kaylee and Wash/Zoe than in Mal/Inara per se. And then it seemed to me like they could never be together without one or another fundamentally changing something, and that didn't sit well with me. For all those reasons.

7. Which ship do you prefer--#2 (Adama/Roslin) or #4 (Aral/Cordelia)?
Guys. It is basically the same ship, except Aral/Cordelia had a happy ending (and babies. Well, a baby). There is no preference, because it is THE SAME SHIP. Search your feelings, you know it to be true.

8. You have the power to make one ship non-existent. Choose from #10 (Middleman/Wendy) or #12 (Eleven/anyone).
Middleman/Wendy. Partly because it squicks me bigtime, and partly because Eleven could probably be with someone. I read him as asexual, but that's just me, and Eleven/Anyone sorta makes me go "argh, again, oh well, whatever." Whereas Middleman/Wendy makes me go "DX ARGH NO."

9. What interests you about #14 (Ryan/Esposito)?
The dynamic between them is so adorable. Sort of halfway between best friends/bromance and actual romance. I teeter on the edge of the ship, though, because Ryan's girlfriend is also adorable. I am torn.

10. When did you stop liking #7 (Doctor/Rose)?
Doomsday. When it became overwrought and operatic, when it became All About Rose, when people started smack-talking Martha simply because she wasn't Rose. When it became increasingly clear that RTD's hardon for Rose was interfering with the story and with good storytelling. Then it got old fast.

11. Did your waning interest in #9 (Cal/Gillian) kill your interest in the series?
Absolutely not! I still adore the series. Just no longer sure that they should necessarily be together, what with Lightman's tendency to be a terrible person.

12. What's a song that reminds you of #1 (Kira/Odo)?
Actually, I don't have one. I have made a fanmix/have one in progress for every other couple on that list, but my Kira/Odo shipgoggles are newly acquired. Although Eurydice by Sleepthief is sort of connected to them in my head, for whatever reason.

13. Which of these ships do you love the most right now?
Kira/Odo, but only because I'm really into DS9 right now.

14. Which do you dislike the most?
Rrrrr Doctor/Rose rrrrr.

15. If you could have any of these pairings double date, who would they be?
Aral/Cordelia and Adama/Roslin. IT WOULD BE HILARIOUS YOU GUYS. Partly because they are, as previously mentioned, kinda the same ship, and partly because Cordelia and Roslin are sort of the same person except Cordelia has a sense of humor, and partly because the four of them together would just be awesome.

16. Have #2 (Adama/Roslin) kissed yet? Elaborate if yes.
Yes! In Resurrecton Ship, and lo, the shippers rejoiced. And then again, like, two seasons later. And then in The Hub, and lo, the fangirls rejoiced more. And then the "augh ew Mom and Dad stop making out" scene, which never fails to make me laugh because of Lee's expression. Towards the end they kissed a lot.

17. Did #4 (Aral/Cordelia) have a happy ending? Do you think one is likely?
Well, no ending yet, and none in sight, but I strongly suspect that they'd say they did. After all, they basically fixed Barrayar all by themselves, and then there is the baby. Even if he does keep trying to get himself killed and inadvertantly saving the world in the process.

18. What would make you start shipping #14 (Ryan/Esposito)?
Ryan breaking up with his girlfriend in a non-painful or heinous manner. I do not want yet another awesome lady bitchified for a ship.

19. If only one could happen, which would you prefer--#2 (Adama/Roslin) or #6 (Sam/Sybil)?
They both happened, so I don't need to choose. Neener neener.

20. You have the power to decide the fate of #10 (Middleman/Wendy). What happens to them?
They continue awesome in their older brother/little sister relationship, and Wendy is happy with Tyler and the Middleman is happy with Lacey or whomever he might settle on in the end. They kick ass and save the world. Because I do love them both, and I adore their relationship. I just don't want them IN a relationship.
