Dear OTP (TCWT Blog Chain)

I am so freakishly excited for this TCWT prompt (thank you for your genius, John). The hardest part was picking just a few couples to write about (decisions!). Let me start off by saying that I hate ship bashing. The rudeness I've witnessed (especially from aggressive Johnlock/Sherlolly shippers . . . calm down, guys) is just plain mean. Each fangirl/boy is allowed his/her own opinion without judgement or cattiness. This has been and always will be a hate-free blog, so don't be afraid to leave a comment!

(Why yes, yes I have made a list of my OTPs--all 50 or so of them--and yes, yes I did consult it as I wrote this post.)

Prompt: “Write a letter to a fictional couple.”

Dear Tenrose,
Why must you hurt me in this way? I spent an entire season squeeing over your adorableness and you had to go and break my heart. Thanks for the week I spent wallowing in my grief with tissues and chocolate, grumbling over the first few episodes of S3.

But in all seriousness, you two are the ultimate OTP. You're funny, you're sweet, you're cute, you kick butt, and you save the universe time and time again. What more could a ship ask for?

Love,
A Dedicated Whovian Surrounded By Empty Boxes of Tissues





Dear Luneville,

You two should totally have been canon. I can't think of a better pairing in the entire series. You're both quirky and often considered misfits. But I think more than anything, what would've drawn the two of you together is that you're unconditionally kind. You love your friends like family and would do anything to help them. You're the perfect match. Fan-fiction doesn't lie.

Love,
A Potterhead Who Thinks You Two Should Just Kiss Already



Dear Sherlolly,

THE FRUSTRATION. You two have had three seasons of sparks and chemistry and nothing?! Sherlock, you idiot, say something to her. For a genius detective, you sure are oblivious to her attempts at romance. Even John sees it. Molly is willing to do anything for you, including pretending you were dead for two years.

If nothing happens in S4, I'm sending another letter of protest.

Love,
A Sherlolly Shipper With Too Many Feels




Dear Megstiel,

Yes, yes, I am in the minority here with the Supernatural fandom, but I can't help it. I never would've expected to ship an angel and a demon in this show, especially a demon whom I'd previously loathed with every fiber of my body. How in the world did I ever end up squealing over you two? Oh yes, because the writing is brilliant. Ahem. But that's another letter for another time.

Cas is undeniably sweet and adorable, and Meg, while rough around the edges, was willing to stay by his side when he was crazy!Cas and stuck in a hospital bed. They take care of each other, which is probably the most important thing a ship can have, especially in the Supernatural fandom.

But, like all the best OTPs, it must either never have existed at all or end in tragedy. *sighs heavily* But this is Supernatural, after all, so there's hope for you yet . . .

Love,

Ignore the confused moose in the background. He knows nothing of your love.

Dear Hazel & Augustus,

Apparently you don't have a ship name because you're just too awesome to even need one. That's pretty cool, but it is a mouthful to say "Hazel and Augustus" when I could be saying "Haugustus" or something to that effect.

You two are smart, sarcastic, funny, and adorable together. You even fangirl/fanboy over books together. How cool is that?! And Gus bought Hazel plane tickets to Amsterdam using his wish from the genies in order to get her to meet her favorite author?! Yeah, he's a keeper.

Love,
A Fangirl Trying Not to Cry



Dear Cress & Thorne,

Corne? Thress? Do you even have a ship name? It doesn't really matter. You guys are awesome. And hilarious. And cute. I pretty much spent the whole time reading the book with a smile on my face. Cress is adorable. Thorne is awesome and reminds me of Captain Jack Harkness. Basically you two are my favorite characters in The Lunar Chronicles. The end.

Love,
A Huge Fan Waiting Impatiently For Winter

There are SO many cool pieces of fanart out there, it was hard to choose just one!

I could go on and on and on, but I won't for the sake of keeping this post at a relatively normal size. I would like to give a shout out to Javajunkie, Sizzy, Malec, Rumbelle, Dean/Jo, and Niles/Daphne.

Who are your OTPs? Please share!

Psst. Remember the "Bean Bag's and Sofa's Writer's Group" I talked about a little while ago? Well the site is finally up! Check it out!

10 People Made Me Happy By Commenting! :D:

Lara Liz said...

Yay! Luneville! I ship those two so hard...

The Magic Violinist said...

@Lara Liz They're just so perfect, aren't they?! :)

Carly said...

I've only just met Rose since I'm only on episode 3 of Ninth's run, but with all the fangirling about TenRose, I ship them already. :)

LUNEVILLE. Don't get me started, I love them to pieces.

Hazel and Augustus broke my heart, but they are amazing together. Their banter was THE BEST.

Cress and Thorne are just the cutest. They are my second favorite ship in The Lunar Chronicles. Cinder and Kai being my OTP of the series.

SIZZY is my all time OTP though... and Wessa... and Aname... THERE ARE JUST TOO MANY. :)

Nova @ Out of Time said...

OMG STOP MY FEELS STOPPPPPPPP

TENROSE *CRIES SO HARD* WE ALL KNEW WHAT HE WAS GOING TO SAY BEFORE THAT CALL GOT CUT

CRESS AND THORNE ARE MY BOOKISH RAPUNZEL AND FLYNN RIDER.

Boquinha said...

Winter is coming. :)

Hilarious post. I like the individual letters and names you used to sign off on each one. Clever.

Also, Sherlock reminds me of Sheldon. They're in season 8 of BBT and it's only recently (season 7?) that he has acknowledged any sparks between himself and Amy. Just a thought. If it's going to take that many seasons, well, at the rate that Sherlock episodes are released . . . you'll be in your 20s, maybe 30s before there's a kiss between Sherlolly! :P *Runs and hides*

Heather said...

Oh, Cress and Thorne are beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I don't think I ship Sherlock with anybody just because I don't think I could wish upon anyone a worse curse, but that's just me. XD These were very sweet—here's to the OTP's that WILL come true whether the writers say they will or not.

Writers know nothing.

The Magic Violinist said...

@Carly Oh, just prepare yourself. You will ship them hard, and have ALL THE FEELS. I'm expecting a blog post about it. ;) I love hearing about a person's journey through DW for the first time.

I would've shipped them from the very beginning had I known what shipping and headcanon was back then!

Right?! I love the dialogue in that book!

Ooh, Cinder and Kai are a good one. And you can't help but love the crush Iko has on him. xD

I'm scared to start The Infernal Devices because everyone's told me it'll break my heart! Then again, TMI broke my heart, but I survived . . . mostly.

@Nova I LOVED THAT YOU COMMENTED IN ALL CAPS, SO I'M GONNA REPLY IN THE SAME WAY.

EVERYONE KNEW. WE WERE ALL FINISHING HIS SENTENCE FOR HIM THROUGH OUR TEARS. IT'S NOT FAIIIR . . .

RAPUNZEL AND FLYNN, YES!!! I TOTALLY PICTURED FLYNN AS I READ IT.

@Boquinha Ha ha ha, I hope so. It's so far away . . .

Ha ha, thank you. ;) I had way too much fun writing them.

THAT'S NOT FUNNY! xD But yes, he does remind me of Sheldon. They even both have short, sarcastic roommates.

@Heather Aren't they?! That whole book just made me melt into a puddle of happiness.

Ha ha, I get that. xD Although I do think they would balance each other out nicely, Sherlock giving Molly more confidence and Molly humanizing Sherlock.

Thanks! :) I think if we wish hard enough, we can make them all canon . . .

Cait @ Paper Fury said...

I LOVED THIS POST SO MUCH AND LIKE I DIED AT MEGSTIEL. I ship them toooooo. SO BAD. And the confused Moose in the background just made the picture 1000% more awesome, because when was the last time Sam had a moment for romance?! In S6? Wait. That was Souless Sam. S5? EITHER WAY IT WAS A LONG TIME AGO. **cries**

Some of my top ships are, OBVIOUSLY Megstiel, and Chaolena (from Throne of Glass) and Quentin and Maggie from Disruption. OMG AND Nathan/Gabriel from Half Bad. **dies because of cuteness**

Rich said...

Man man man, Doctor who, out of the 2 seasons I have watched, season 2 is the best. Im still crying over the ending of it, but its still a great season. And yes, I think its kinda funny how Sherlock acts around Molly... :P

The Magic Violinist said...

@Cait Thanks! :) Ha ha, I know you do. I think I know a grand total of two, maybe three SPN fans who ship it? And it makes me sad because the Megstiel community is so freaking small, and it's such a great OTP to fangirl about. So much great fan-fiction there, too.

Right?! It's makes me laugh and then it makes me sad. Poor Sam has zero luck when it comes to that. Everyone he's with ends up dead or worse. I guess we should've predicted what we were in for after the way the pilot ended . . .

Chaolena! I totally ship it. :) I need to read Half Bad soon, I've been seeing so many good things about it.

@Rich RIGHT?! Season 2 is my favorite. :) I love it sooo much. (And I'm sorry about the ending . . . kinda. Now you know my pain. xD)
