The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick.This week’s Fandom Friday is all about OTPs. But I cannot choose just five, even narrowing it down to 5 TV ships was really hard. I can’t help it. I am a romantic. I ship. I ship hard. What are your favorite OTPs?
John Crichton and Aeryn Sun (Farscape)
As a Peacekeeper Aeryn felt like her feelings were a defect that would get in the way of her job. And then she met John. Boy meets girl, girl kick’s boy’s ass and happily ever after was in the cards after that. It might take some time, but you always knew that they would get there, that their romance was once for the ages. Farscape was always about John and Aeryn for me. It was their love story. They are best friends, partners, and they protect each other. And they are damned sexy too.
Veronica Mars and Logan Echolls (Veronica Mars)
Logan was an adorable smarmy jackass. I can understand Veronica’s attraction because when he was around her, suddenly he was sweet and a kind of a smirking teddy bear. Again I totally get it. I think what makes their love story epic is even when things got bad, they were always there for each other. Their snarkiness with one another makes for the best dialogue ever and seeing them just makes me smile. I am sorry Piz, you didn’t even have a chance.
Buffy Summers and Angel (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
In 243 years Angel loved one woman, her name was Buffy Summers. And holy angst Batman. They are the star crossed lovers and I will ship Buffy and Angel forever. No other couple on tv made me cry and laugh as much as they did. I wanted to have that love. Talk about epic. “'Cause I could see your heart. You held it before you for everyone to see. And I worried that it would be bruised or torn. And more than anything in my life, I wanted to keep it safe... to warm it with my own.”
Malcolm Reynolds and Inara Serra (Firefly)
“You fog things up, You always have.” They bicker and they fight and yet the chemistry between them is awesome. Let’s face it even the entire crew of Serenity ships them. We may not have seen them really get together, but you know it is coming. It has to. My heart needs it to
The Doctor and Rose Tyler (Doctor Who)
The Doctor took Rose on the adventure of a lifetime. She saw the stars and fell in love with a madman and a box. Even when he regenerated and no longer wore the face she had grown to love, she fell even harder and he fell for her. They rescued each other somehow. Through Rose the Doctor found his hearts again, found a purpose. However, by far this is the ship that breaks my heart. I had to rewrite the ending for this one and make it perfect and not just for Rose.
Carter and Jack (Stargate), Scully and Mulder (X-Files), Pacey and Joey (Dawsons Creek), Sydney and Vaughn (Alias), and Ned and Chuck (Pushing Daisies)
