DO YOU REMEMBER THE EPI/SCENE/CHAPTER THAT YOU FIRST STARTED SHIPPING SIX?
I think it was the scene where Blair asked: "What if I lose everything?" and Dan replied with "You'll still have me." With that kind of dedication from a guy, I was head over heels in love with the ship. I've always liked Blair over Serena because of her spunkiness and attitude. And I had an inkling of the ship a while back when I shipped Blair/Nate from the books. I never thought it was ever going to happen but low and behold it did. I felt like it was the one thing that brought Gossip Girl back on the radar for me was Dair. The whole Chuck/Blair fiasco ruined it for me and it was so so so offensive the way they treated each other. You may say it's "passionate" but I'd like to say it was messed up. There is no way in the world I would ever continue being with a man that degraded me and disrespected me. And Dan was there for Blair when everything was coming apart, he didn't judge her for all the horrible things she's done. And he stood quietly by the sidelines waiting for her, not forcing himself on her or pushing and shoving his way in. He did it in a dignified manner and he really did deserve her. But I can't say the same for Blair.
HAVE YOU EVER READ A FIC ABOUT TWO?
Have I ever? I would say I have read over more than 70 fanfictions about the two of them. I even considered about writing about them a few times, but it just didn't feel quite right when I wrote about them. Do you ever get the feeling that you just can't write this ship and do it justice? I felt like so many other authors wrote them very well and I didn't really have a decent plot for them. So I just stick to reading others' fanfics. And to this day, I still do read fanfics about MorGar.
HAVE A PICTURE OF 4 EVER BEEN YOUR SCREENSAVER/PROFILE PIC/TUMBLR?
No, I just am not that integrated into the ship. I adore their bickering and banter but I wasn't persuaded to put them on my profile pics.
IF 7 WERE TO SUDDENLY BREAK UP TODAY, WHAT WOULD YOUR REACTION BE?
I would be so heartbroken and shocked. They were meant to be always. If you are reading this and haven't checked out Nodame Cantabile, you should right now. Their relationship is hilarious and deep. It's built on the basis of music and music is a great basis. They did kind of break up once in the manga but they got back together very soon.
WHY IS 1 SO IMPORTANT?
This is going to be a long one, brace yourselves.
Inception was a phenomenal film for me. I never got why everyone was so confused by it. It's not a romantic film but I think that it was the adrenaline and all that unresolved sexual tension between Arthur and Ariadne that got me shipping them so hard. My biggest ship of all, and there wasn't even three hours of together time for them. You can tell when a romance is scripted or not. In this case, it wasn't scripted at all and a lot of the interactions between Arthur and Ariadne (or should I say JGL and Ellen Page) were impromptu scenes or improvisations. The kiss on the second level was totally improv (JGL initiated) and that has to say about the amount of chemistry that went on between the two of them. After seeing the movie, I knew that Arthur/Ariadne was going to be a huge ship for me.
And I was right. After joining the LiveJournal community, the imaginations of not only myself but so many fabulous authors just brought the pairing to life. A lot of this pairing had to do with our imaginations and our own made up canon instead of the movie-verse. After reading so many spectacular fanfics and writing several myself, I became so invested in this ship. I still write for them but the shipping craze has died down a bit for all of us. This tends to happen for movie ships, because there's only one movie. However, I still feel like it is my biggest ship because of the amount of time I spend contributing fanfics and reading fanfics and daydreaming about them.
IS 9 A FUNNY OR SERIOUS SHIP?
I don't think that Hinny is a funny ship. It is a serious ship. Harry is the person that is himself the most with Ginny and that's pretty prominent in the books, perhaps not in the films. I know so many people feel like the Harry/Ginny relationship was forced by Rowling but I think that they were meant to be from the beginning. I don't what it is but I am a sucker for unrequited love stories. That was basically the story of them for the first five or so books/films. And finally, Harry wiped his glasses clean and found Ginny. They just complement each other so well, passionate and comforting. It's just so easy to love them both together. I also heard the rumors that Bonnie Wright didn't do a good job of portraying Ginny Weasley in the films but come on. Cut the girl a little bit of slack, the writers didn't necessarily do a good job of writing a concrete and wholesome character for her, especially within such a small amount of screen time she gets compared to other characters. There wasn't much she could do. And since they were one of my very first ships, they will always have a special place in my heart.
OUT OF ALL YOUR SHIPS LISTED WHICH SHIP HAS THE MOST CHEMISTRY?
Oh man...This is difficult. I would say Arthur/Ariadne because a lot of their chemistry was transferred via the eyes and body movements. I fully believe that given more screen time together and a good plot about a dream sharing job with them together, their chemistry/relationship would have been explosive.
OUT OF ALL YOUR SHIP LISTED WHICH ONE HAS THE STRONGEST BOND?
It's a tie between Morgan/Garcia and Nodame/Chiaki. Morgan and Garcia have a strong friendship bond, one that has been tested so many times. They forgive each other constantly and have even exchanged "I love you's" even in a platonic way. If tested, I believe that their bond would last the longest and still not be frayed. And Nodame/Chiaki may not have a strong relationship, it feels more onesided with Nodame picking up most of the slack but they have such a profound musical bond. They move each other with their music and that's why they haven't given up on each other yet despite their personalities being on opposite sides of the spectrum. It's the music that brings them back every time.
HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU READ/WATCHED 10’S FANDOM?
A lot of times. It's so sad that Chad and Sophia's relationship in real life ruined it for their on screen counterparts. I really really loved Brooke and Lucas. They had a more turbulent yet real relationship. It didn't feel forced like Peyton/Lucas and it was passionate and it worked. It sucked when it ended especially the way it ended. Which was Peyton being a bitch. But I did watch and read about these two so many times it hurt.
WHICH SHIP HAS LASTED THE LONGEST?
I have to say Morgan/Garcia. Their relationship is based on friendship, the strongest kind, even though I would love it if they get together.
HOW MANY TIMES IF EVER HAS 6 BROKEN UP?
Once and it ruined the rest of the ship. I don't think they will ever get back together. Unless someone in the writers department suddenly get an enlightenment that Chuck is a monster and doesn't deserve Blair and let her get back together with Dan, then it's probably never going to happen. And honestly, at this point, I'm so disgusted with the way the writers ended things between them that I hope they don't get back together. Blair just chose Chuck and Dan just chose Georgina. It just makes me sick. She doesn't deserve him.
IF THE WORLD WAS SUDDENLY THRUST INTO A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE WHICH SHIP WOULD MAKE IT OUT ALIVE, 2 OR 8?
Once again I have to say Morgan/Garcia. Morgan would never let anything happen to Garcia, and he would be heartbroken if anything ever did. He's also a trained FBI agent and teaches martial arts. So I think they'll be fine. Garcia will also be the comfort and solace to Morgan's darkness and then they'll finally realize their feelings for each other and get together. Please let that happen then.
As for April/Jackson, the ship hasn't grown that far yet to fully understand their relationship. They had a good friendship but a shaky start to a romantic endeavor. So we'll have to see about them, they have a lot of potential though.
DID 7 EVER HAVE TO HIDE THEIR RELATIONSHIP FOR ANY REASON?
Chiaki had to hide it because he didn't want to be in love with a hentai. *snicker* He's hidden his feelings for her for a long time and finally couldn't withstand her anymore and relented. Attaboy.
IS 4 STILL TOGETHER?
Well they're together as partners but not together in a romantic sense. I don't know if they will or won't. It's pretty iffy. They did have a kiss once though...but not much discussion about that afterwards.
IS 10 CANON?
Hell yes they were. But unfortunately Chad Michael Murray left and Julian Baker came instead.
IF ALL 10 SHIPS WERE PUT INTO A COUPLE’S HUNGER GAMES WHICH COUPLE WOULD WIN?
I think it's Kensi and Deeks. They're just so badass and able to hold each other's backs. Because they're partners and they've had so much experience together, working together and fighting baddies together, they are seasoned for the Hunger Games. In close second would be Danny and Lindsay, but they've settled down now with a child so they're much more toned down than they were before.
HAS ANYBODY EVER TRIED TO SABOTAGE 5’s SHIP?
Yes. The whole Rikki/Ruben disaster did mess it up for Danny and Lindsay. And it's such a sad plot line too. They never meant to sabotage it and it wasn't on purpose or anything, but it happened and a lot of people got screwed over.
WHICH SHIP WOULD YOU DEFEND UNTIL DEATH AND BEYOND?
I would defend Morgan and Garcia until the end of my days. They deserve each other and they deserve to be together. Arthur/Ariadne doesn't need that much defending because it's mostly in my imagination.
DO YOU SPEND HOURS A DAY GOING THROUGH 3’S TUMBLR PAGES?
Maybe...*looks away*. I do spend time looking at Molly/Sherlock tumblr's but I do that for all ships. There just isn't much of anything on there really. I love Sherlock the series and they don't often come out with episodes. We have to wait till next year for the next season to come out. Molly and Sherlock's relationship is a bit complex and I really want to see where it goes next season because Sherlock's bound to rely on Molly after Reichenbach Fall because he did ask for her help. But he is a narcissistic jerk and incredibly insensitive towards Molly. But it's sweet how Molly dotes on him. Oh I am a sucker for unrequited relationships.
IF AN EVIL WITCH DESCENDED FROM THE SKY AND TOLD YOU THAT YOU HAD TO PICK 1 OF THE 10 SHIPS TO BREAK UP FOREVER OR ELSE SHE’D BREAK THEM ALL UP FOREVER WHICH SHIP WOULD YOU SINK?
I guess you can just go ahead and break Brook and Lucas, because they're already broken. *sniff* Damnit.
Notes: I'd just like to include some of my all time biggest ships that didn't make it into the top ten but still have a huge part of my heart:
Susan and Caspian (Chronicles of Narnia)
Bobby and Tara (Sue Thomas FBEye)
Kyle and Jessi (Kyle XY)
Abby and Tony (NCIS)
Abby and McGee (NCIS)
Anne and Frederick (Persuasion)
Amy and Sheldon (The Big Bang Theory)
Eowyn and Aragorn (Lord of the Rings)
House and Cuddy (House MD)
So there you have it. I just wasted half an hour of my life on this.
