Come discuss with us!
I bet we’ve all experienced our bookish ships sinking, right? Our pairings not ending up together… Or when one of them ends up with someone else…
I am one of those people who take ships VERY seriously. I rage and will forever dislike a book if my ship doesn’t happen. Well, okay, not really, there are still different aspects that make a book good or bad, but non-ships make me so mad. It’s the SECOND worst thing an author could do. The first being character deaths, of course.
I have had so many sunken ships/ships that didn’t sail… But I won’t be sharing them in fear of spoilers! I just want to express (mentally, to them) how sad I am that they didn’t work out. They broke my heart, really!
It’s probably because, with love triangles, I tend to pick the “best friend” over whoever the other guy is, and we all know how best friend tend to get friendzoned. I mourn for you guys, and I sincerely pray that there will be more books where you guys will reign supreme!
There are other times when I like the FIRST GUY who shows up rather than whoever shows up second. :P I have no idea why I think this way, but it happens a LOT! And usually girls end up with who she met last, yeah? At least, that’s the case with a lot of the books I’ve read with love triangles. :T Am I weird? Okay, I’m weird.
Well what are your thoughts on sinking ships in general?
Faye: Well, it sucks, but it’s not the end of the world for me. I’ll always respect the author’s “main” ships. :P They usually have a reason for doing what they do! XD
Kure: I’m disappointed, but, yes, I move on. LOL
What’s the worst case you’ve experienced, though? Like you REALLY wanted them to end up together and it was tragic how they didn’t?
Faye: When I found out Matt and Sora ended up together in Digimon (an anime), I actually cried. =)) I wanted him with Mimi! I’m less immature now though.
Kure: I’m sometimes drawn to tragic ships. I’m only reading Naruto (anime/manga) right now to see if my ship happens. A few years ago, I would have been devastated if they didn’t become canon.
What sort of pairing do you ship the most? (Best friends, bad boy/good girl, etc.)
Faye: It depends on the story, haha. But I like it if they were complete opposites… if they bantered a lot… and they find common ground.
Kure: It depends on the story. I usually ship based on compatibility. I’ve even shipped siblings… Only once, though. And I blame it on the writers and the actors.
Tell me about your ships!
Aimee likes to ship all the ships. Give her a book without romance and she’ll still find a pairing to ship. Seriously. That’s just how life is.
