I love shipping! I'm a hardcore fangirl, its sad and dorky. Hence, my username. Anyways, I jut saw a similar entry from somebody else (I'll post a link later). amd now I'm going to go through my Top 10 or so ships. In order! I have the ship names as well as the people and their movies/books/TV shows etc.
1. Jarida (Jack Frost x Merida, ROTG & Brave):
I LOVE THIS SHIP!!!!!! EEEEE!!!! Plus, I'm totally addicted to the Big Four fandom. I just think its so amazing. They would be that passionate couple that yells at each other and gets into fights, but love each other and have a healthy relationship. They would nicely cancel out each other's personalities. For example, Merida would keep Jack in check, and Jack would teach Merida a few things about letting go. Gotta love that FrostFire.
2. Percybeth (Percy Jackson x Annabeth Chase, Percy Jackson and the Olympians and the resulting spinoff seres, The Heroes of Olympus):
This was my very first ship, and it holds a special place in my heart. I have shipped Percybeth since the first book came out, and I see they have the same kind of relationship as Jack and Merida, only Percy and Annabeth are more mellow, so their relationship is less extreme. Its still the same kind of thing! Annabeth keeps Percy in line, and Percy teaches Annabeth to lighten up.
3. Makkorra (Mako x Korra, Legend of Korra)
They are amazing. They also remind me of Jarida. Huh. Alot of my favorite ships follow the same pattern. Mako's one of the only people Korra lets in. Most of the time she pushes people away, and hardly ever confides in them. In the second season, Mako has gotten a lot less brooding and become a better listener, but I miss the tension of the first season just a tiny bit. Does anybody else feel this way?
4. Aang x Katara (The Last Airbender)
I don't know the ship name for this, but I love them. I think they are so cute. They are not like Jarida at all, they compliment each other rather than contrast, like Percybeth. Although Percybeth has some contrast.... What I mean in Similar vs. Contrasting is that the couples balance each other out in different ways. Aang and Katara are complimentary because while they do have some opposite traits (Aang's go-with-the-flow attitude vs. Katara's bossiness), but their whole personalities are similar. It has to do with how the couple compliments each other.
5. Ruby x Jaune (RWBY)
I don't know if that's officially a ship, but I want it to be! Talk about a Similar complimentary couple! Oh, they would be so cute!
6. Hiccunzel (Hiccup x Rapunzel, HTTYD and Tangled)
This is a prime example of a Similar complimentary couple. They would be that shy dreamer couple. They're both smart and would have a lot of things in common.... That means a lot of things to talk about. Plus, they are more of a talking couple than say Jarida....
7. Spitfire (Artemis x Wally/Kid Flash, Young Justice)
For those of you who are unfamiliar with YJ, it was a TV show that was unfortunately not renewed after season 2 (*tear*), but it focused on the teenage protégés of the Justice League. There is/was a YJ comic book series that preceded the show, but the show was more of a spinoff of the whole DC universe than that series. In it, two main characters (although not the absolute main characters, it was more of an ensemble cast) were Artemis, the badass archer under Green Arrow who is just amazing. She and Merida remind me of each other. And, someone who personally reminds me of Jack Frost, Wally (who goes by Kid Flash), the goofball under the Flash. They are perfect together, and in S2 they get together. The name "Spitfire" comes from a quote in the first season. Their personalities contrast nicely, like Jarida.
8. Tohru x Kyo (Fruits Basket)
Did I spell that right??? Oh well. Anyways, this is Contrasting ship. Tohru and Kyo compliment each other more through their differences than their similarities. Tohru's calm and caring while Kyo's just.... Kyo. Tohru's the only one who can deal with him, I think. Her patience is amazing.
9. Soul x Maka (Soul Eater)
There is just so much chemistry between these two! They would make a beautiful couple. They have such a history, and they really understand each other. They are a perfect example of how contrasting couples can come together and over time not change but really understand each other and make a great couple.
10. Nightsami (Nightwing x Asami, YJ and Legend of Korra)
I literally just stumbled across this ship on YouTube via this video here
, and I love it! Oh, for those of you who are wondering, Nightwing is Dick Grayson, who was Robin in S1 of YJ and now he's Nightwing and Tim Drake is Robin. Asami is from LOK. I think that this would be a great couple. I mean, they both think that the world has a thing for them, they've both suffered from tragedy and betrayal, and they look so good together, its not even funny. Seriously, you need to check the vid out. If you didn't see the discrete link, here's an obvious one:
I hope you liked my list of ships! If you have other really good ones, put them in the comments below. Feel free to make your case for or against any of the couples/ships in my list. No hating though. Please be respectful of my opinions.
