Fandom Shipping Meme

Woohoo!! I was actually tagged (by isiscaughey), go me! :)

1. List your top seven character ships
2. Put all of them in order of your love for them; 7 to 1, 1 being your main fixation.
3. Name the movie/show that they're in.
4. Supply photos for said people.
5. Tag seven people.

I rarely ship more than one couple at a time, and even if I do, one always has dominance over the others. So, some lower numbers were once way higher than they are now and were much more extreme than higher numbers, but that was then, this is now. So ...

7. Luke/Grace (Joan of Arcadia)

A few years ago, I loved JOA the show, and was totally obsessed with Luke/Grace, a secondary couple. I did not go to sleep without watching at least 10-20 minutes of their scenes. Fabulous chemistry, amazing actors, completely unlike any couple I've ever shipped.

6. Buffy/Xander (Sarah Michelle Gellar/Nicholas Brendon) - Buffy, the Vampire Slayer

This is one I HUGELY shipped during the first five seasons of Buffy. I know, I know, Buffy and ... Xander?! I think they had the best chemistry of any actors on the show, and the few scenes we had that explored that chemistry were electric. They are so my 'what might have been ..." couple.

5. Paris/Torres (Robert Duncan McNeil/Roxann Dawson) - Star Trek: Voyager

Oh, I adored these two. A few years ago I got all seven seasons of the series and had fun rewatching all of my wonderful Paris/Torres memories. It's actually kinda funny, out of all of my couples (and I've had SO MANY!) they are the only couple of mine that ever got married and had a kid. And she's half-Klingon.

4. Mulder/Scully (David Duchovny/Gillian Anderson) - The X-Files

I loved the show, probably more than I actually did the couple (which is a rarity for me), but I DID adore these two -- and I LOVED the recent movie! Such chemistry, such a love story. These two, oh man, they were my first online fandom and I was hooked like crazy.

3. Logan/Veronica (Jason Dohring/Kristen Bell) - Veronica Mars

I never loved the show as much as most VM fans did; I adored a few episodes, but overall had issues to some degree with about every other episode. I HATED so much of what Rob Thomas (and Kristen Bell with what power she had) did to destroy Logan/Veronica in seasons two and three, but when you have chemistry like these two actors, you just can't NOT prevail. (And I still adore Jason Dohring and will follow his career anywhere!)

2. EJ/Sami (James Scott/Alison Sweeney) - Days of Our Lives

There are actually soap couples that I've adored more than these two, but they are my only current soap couple and are a huge case of what might have been had stupid exec producers and stupid headwriters (not Hogan) not screwed them up, but still their chemistry is just amazing and I'm still hanging on.

1. Doctor/Rose (Christopher Eccleston & David Tennant/Billie Piper) - Doctor Who

These two are my current couple obsession, and I am SOOOOOOOOO obsessed. Nine or Ten (although, yeah, I do have a *slight* preference for Nine), I love them both with Rose. The Doctor loves Rose and Rose loves the Doctor. It's as simple as that, and I love them. Great chemistry, great writing (for the most part), great love story, great everything. Loves.

Oh, there's others I'd love to have mentioned but I was trying to narrow it to seven. Ack! Barney/Robin (HIMYM), Cooper/Audrey (Twin Peaks) Maggie/Eli (Eli Stone), Wolverine/Rogue (X-Men, the movies), Mal/River (Firefly), Chuck/Blair (Gossip Girl) and those are just a few off the top of my head. They just missed the list.

Tagging ...
