"When he is wounded, I bleed."
-Abigail Adams to James Lovell, regarding her husband John Adams, in a letter dated spring of 1781

"But when he's cut, I bleed."
-Cordelia Naismith to her mother, regarding her eventual husband Aral Vorkosigan, Shards of Honor by Lois McMaster Bujold

Lois, I see what you did there. Please tell me that was on purpose. Please, please, pretty pretty please, I will love you forever no really. Because that would be awesome made of awesome made of pure fucking win.

Also because the Adamses were basically real-life Vorkosigans, minus the cutting off of heads and plus several more children. Another reason why I ship it?

IT ARE TRUFAX. Seriously. They're both true political partnerships, with a strong emotional and loving side. Both great men married to great women, and both times the male half is arguably only great because he married the right woman (remind me to tell you about Hannah Quincy sometime). Both marriages lasted, and had about the same age difference (nine and ten years respectively).

...you know, the more I talk about this, the more I'm convinced that it's not a coincidence. When Fandoms Collide!
