Last week I did a bookish version of the R.I.P. It or Ship It tag (click here to check it out!) and despite a lot of very, very terrible outcomes on that one, I just couldn’t stop thinking about how much fun this would be with TV characters. As you may have noticed in the title, this is Part 1. There are 2 reasons for that. First, I could think of so many characters and this tag is already very long and I didn’t want to make it even longer. And second, this is like the “adult” version of the tag, because I thought it would just be wrong if teens got paired with savage pirates (Black Sails sort of took over …). Well, I hope you have fun and if you want to do this as well – CONSIDER YOURSELF TAGGED!
I thought about this for a while, because there is obvious chemistry between Rip and Sara on Legends of Tomorrow (but Sara has chemistry with everyone) and in my mind Lagertha is a lot like Sara Lance – tough, smart and badass! Also, Rip is a Timemaster, so he could totally travel to the time when Vikings still roamed the planet. But, in the end it just didn’t feel right … so a no on our first couple.
I don’t actually know why I think that this would work. When I saw their names together, I just thought “sure, why not?”. She could definitely handle him and she looks a little like his ex … so, let’s give that a try.
YAAAAAAAAAS! This was totally not rigged or sabotaged or anything else! My two favourite schemers got together through fate alone. I shipped them on the show already, so of course I am going to ship them now!
Eleanor can only ever belong to her one true love … Jasper! Also, when I imagine Sara and Eleanor next to each other, I have to think of Mandy/Samantha and “Let It Go” by James Bay stars playing in my head and I get super sad and I just don’t want to go to that place.
I would TOTALLY ship them as friends. They’d be really good study buddies or something like that, both being perfectionists and stuff like that, but I just CANNOT picture them as a couple. My mind is unable to picture it.
Can you imagine it? Because I totally can! Lucifer is fun and charming. Michael is secretive and calm and rational, the opposite of Lucifer. And you know, opposites attract, but they have something in common: they are both tormented by their Father’s actions and the fate He has decided for them. I guess they are technically brothers … but aren’t all angels? I am just going to overlook that bit. And fun fact! Lucifer’s wings are white and Michael’s are black – uuuuh!
Anne Bonny does like women, but this is just a big nope! These worlds were not supposed to collide! Sally is so bubbly and Anne … just no!
Okay, WHY OH WHY COULDN’T THE PARTNERS HAVE BEEN SWITCHED WITH THE NEXT ROUND!?
Only FitzSimmons and Logan & Veronica work. This is just a terrible mix up!!!
I know that Nick does not really care about the gender of his partner. He is so wonderfully charming and sexy. But Jack can be just as much of a sweet-talker. Somehow I don’t think those two would get along. I rather see them clash more than get along …
Hahaha I do realise that this one is a little strange and a lot of people probably won’t agree, BUT hear me out! They are both aliens, look sort of like they are the same age, while being older and they are dead set on protecting Earth. That’s a lot of things to have in common! I am probably deluding myself with this, but WHATEVER! I CAN SHIP WHOEVER I WANT TO SHIP!
Clara is always flirting with everyone and making me ship her with side characters whenever and wherever they land, so just picture them landing during Viking-times and her running into Rollo. He’s almost twice as tall as she is. They’d look adorable next to each other. Feisty Clara and strong Rollo. And while she’s at it, she could help him be a better man, or at least better at strategising against his brother.
Thinking about it now, I don’t know why I even put Claire and Jamie in there. They don’t work with anyone else but each other. Then she got drawn with Elijah and I think of him kind of being like Frank and my conviction wavered for a second. Could this maybe work? Yes, it might, but in the end that tiny voice in my head wasn’t strong enough. I denied their ship the passage and sank it right away.
Ugh, no! I love Ander – he deserves someone way less vicious and vengeful. Also, Klaus would probably try to steal Ander’s throne or something like that. It’s just not cool!
Try to imagine it! I dare you! Do it! IT IS IMPOSSIBLE. I like them individually, but once again, their paths were not meant to cross with each other!
So what do you think of my couples? Who was the best? Who was the worst? Which shows do you watch?
