Since everyone else is doing it...

The character pairings meme...



SIX PAIRINGS I LIKE:

#1. Ichigo/Rukia from Bleach.
#2. Draco/Pansy from HP.
#3. Sora/Riku from KH.
#4. Cloud/Tifa from FFVII.
#5. Angel/Cordelia from Angel.
#6. Neji/Hinata from Naruto.

THREE SHIPS I'VE ABANDONED:

#7. Remus/Tonks from HP.
#8. Harry/Draco from HP.
#9. Brian/Michael from QaF.

THREE SHIPS I'VE NEVER LIKED (the list needs to be longer):

#10. Ichigo/Orihime from Bleach.
#11. Brian/Justin from QaF.
#12. Harry/Ginny from HP.

TWO SHIPS THAT HAVE PIQUED MY INTEREST:

#13. Zuko/Mai from Avatar.
#14. Sokka/Toph from Avatar.

QUESTIONS:

1. Why do you dislike #11 so much?

Brian and Justin are so bad for each other. Justin had so much potential to be a great character, but Brian sucked away all of his potential and made him a pathetic doormat. He never had an opportunity to grow properly, and he just became another of Brian's worshippers/enablers. Brian doesn't need any more of those. Also, I loved Brian/Michael from the get-go. They're soulmates, and Justin ruined everything. :P

2. Who do you know that ships #13?

They have a following, but I don't actually know or socialize with anyone who does. However, I'm new to the fandom.

3. What would be your ideal scenario for couple #3?

For Sora to get any romantic notions of Kairi out of his head so that he can save Riku from himself.

4. What is your favorite moment for #1?

I always flipflop on this because they have so many great moments, but it's probably a toss up between a few: When Ichigo gives her the infamous "Yo" at her execution, with that gorgeously proud expression on his face. I privately call it the "Hey, Mom, look what I can do!" expression, because I fully acknowledge the Oedipus complex Ichigo has her wrapped up in. Or, it's during the Grand Fisher Arc, when they're running completely in-partner-sync and they appear to be having an intimate conversation without actually speaking. Or, when they're reunited in Ichigo's classroom, and he has that totally woobie expression on his face, complete with the name stuttering that I love. Or any of their moments. This is too hard.

5. How long have you been following couple #6?

About a month. I'm new to Naruto as well, but the pairing immediately got my attention. How could I resist the sheer gorgeous obsession and tragedy of this pairing?

6. What's the story with #8? What made you stop caring?

I gave it a devoted five years, but then I fell in love with Draco/Pansy. And then Rowling fucked up everything with her damn books 5-7. She ruined Draco for me. While everyone else applauded her for actually giving Draco "depth," I weeped for the mini-sociopath-in-training that I originally fell in love with. I wanted my little racist Death Eater to achieve the level of badassery and, instead, I got him crying in the bathroom with Moaning Myrtle.

7. Which ship do you prefer--#2 or #4?

#2. Draco/Pansy was my world for a while. They will always be my favorite pairing of all time.

8. You have the power to make one ship non-existent. Choose from #10 or #12.

Oh, God. Both. However, if I have to choose, then #12, and only because that abomination actually became canon. I still fly into rages the second it gets mentioned anytime, anywhere. Erasing Harry/Ginny from the world would also mean erasing a good chunk of the most unbearable parts of the last three books. That would be amazing. I'd do it in a second.

9. What interests you about #14?

Well, I'm not entirely sure about this pairing yet. I have trouble picturing Sokka in any kind of sexual way, and I'm not yet entirely clear on whether Toph actually has canon feelings for him. I suppose I'm only for it if Toph is, and that's because I love her enough to want her to be happy. Otherwise, probably not.

10. When did you stop liking #7?

When Rowling actually wrote it. She killed it by writing it badly instead of letting the fanficcers do it right. Plus she turned Tonks into a despised, spineless, doormat of a beard. I loved it until I saw Remus actually hating it himself more than any fangirl could. :/

11. Did your waning interest in #9 kill your interest in the series?

Hmn. I can't really say yes, because QaF was never really good, what with it being written after the first season solely by two talentless hacks. But I still watched it for love of the actors and characters. And I did hate it later when Brian and Michael had little to no interaction on screen. I'll always love them, but Cowlip did everything in their power to make the pairing impossible, and the fandom divas make it impossible to enjoy them... um, fandomly? But I still miss it every so often, so... no?

12. What's a song that reminds you of #1?

You Look So Fine by Garbage always makes me think of Ichigo and Rukia for some reason.

13. Which of these ships do you love the most right now?

Ichigo/Rukia.

14. Which do you dislike the most?

Ichigo/Orihime, but only because it's the most present today, while I don't have to think about Harry/Ginny every day anymore now that I've more or less left the fandom.

15. If you could have any of these pairings double date, who would they be?

Ichigo, Rukia, Angel, and Cordelia. It makes me giggle to think of Cordelia and Rukia being sassy together, while Ichigo and Angel brood and mutter in the background, displeased with being forced to come out and interact at all.

16. Have #2 kissed yet? Elaborate if yes.

Hehe. Um, presumably, since they were dating. Head in the lap and all that.

17. Did #4 have a happy ending? Do you think one is likely?

Oh, God. Yes, please tell me, Nomura. I believe that it's implied at the end of Advent Children that they do, but everything is so freaking ambiguous. And it's Cloud, the original King of Brooding (and that is saying something, considering some of the other men on this list), who could easily take a swan dive into depression at any second. However, Nomura has claimed that Advent Children is the closure for Cloud's story, so I'm sticking with yes, he finally has his happily ever after with Tifa and their hopefully legally adopted children.

18. What would make you start shipping #14?

More personal interaction between the two characters and a canon interest on at least Toph's part. Even better if it was from Sokka's side, though. Then, he would need to stop having love affairs every other episode with random girls.

19. If only one could happen, which would you prefer--#2 or #6?

Um, #2 did happen, and any more attention from Rowling would have just been disastrous since she's made no secret of her hatred for Pansy. So, I'm gonna have to say Neji/Hinata, because more interaction- any kind of interaction- between them would be much appreciated. I'd also love to see what the ramifications of their relationship would be on the Hyuuga clan and Hinata's father in particular.

20. You have the power to decide the fate of #10. What happens to them?

Well, I would like Orihime to finally confess her feelings to Ichigo, and then I would like him to kindly rebuff her. Then, Orihime would move on and finally grow as a character, becoming independent and never being heard to mutter the phrase "Kurosaki-kun" ever again. She would then finally notice that Ishida is right there and eventually return his feelings. They would have Quincy babies, and they could play with Ichigo and Rukia's half-maybe-sort-of-somehow-shinigami brats.
