With Valentine’s Day tomorrow, we here at Nerds Doing Stuff are heading into Five Fandom Friday with full force. What does that mean? Well, you’ll be getting a list of Fictional Couples we ship from both myself, Robby, as well as a list from Stacey. Two lists. Couples a-plenty. Let’s do this!
1. Dean Winchester and Pie
Do I really need to say anything else?
2. Aang and Katara
Did I ever think I would ship characters from a show that was on Nickelodeon? No. Did I think it would be children that I shipped? No. But did it happen anyway? You bet it did. Aang and Katara from Avatar: The Last Airbender are one of the ships that I had to come around to in the end, just because I didn’t want it to happen. It was too cliche, too destined to happen. I wanted Katara to end up with a different character, Zuko. Don’t get the fans of the show started on that ship. The battles between “Katang” and “Zutara” fans are as fierce as Uncle Iroh getting to a fresh pot of tea. But after watching the show many times, I realized all the things I felt that shouldn’t keep the two characters together were the exact reason they should be together. They were the first people to see each other when Aang was freed from the iceberg. They fought together, laughed together, overcame so many obstacles that no normal kids should have been able to overcome, and in that time, grew closer and closer.
3. Kristoff Bjorgman and Anna of Arendelle
This one I hold near and dear to my heart. One, I feel like Kristoff is the total embodiment of myself. My animated spirit animal. No, I don’t have a reindeer as my best friend or was raised by rock trolls, but imagine if I was? How sweet would that be? Right back on track. These two are just simply one of my canon ships because well, they go so well together. They fight like normal people, have strong opinions, and silly and brash and just are like myself and my fiance. It doesn’t help that we also cosplay as them, which makes the connection all the more stronger.
4. Marko and Alana from Saga
This one is hard because well, spoilers? I don’t want to say much for anyone who is not reading the comic series Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples, but just know you should be reading it and get up from your computer and go. Go buy it now. Anyways, why do I ship these two? Well, I did from Day 1 of reading the comic.There is something about their relationship that is just so visceral, so real and emotional that you can’t but want them to succeed. They defy odds, they love with no consequences (or many, many consequences) and they keep one another real.
5. Ferris Bueller and Sloane Peterson
We’re going to the 80’s for this one. I always found the relationship between Ferris and Sloane incredibly interesting because they seemed to just be two different people completely. Sloane never struck me as someone who would date a guy like Ferris, and Ferris never seemed like the type of person who would date anyone at all. He was a free spirit, and she was someone who would look down on a free spirit like him. Or so I thought after watching the movie for the first time, even second time. But as I continued to watch the film on repeat viewings, I saw the complete and utter devotion to one another that existed. Ferris would literally do anything for her, and in turn, she would do anything for him. Whether it’s ditching school, acting sad for a fake phone call, or quietly spending time in one another’s arms at a museum, these two were in it for the long haul for another another. And who wouldn’t want that?
And that’s a wrap for my part of this Five Fandom Friday! Let’s hear what Stacey has to say in her own commentary!
