What's your favorite ship and why?
Sebastian and Ciel lmao.
I got super into them at like 12, they introduced me to BL when I was still super close minded about gay couples and the like.
I've gotten into a lot of media since then but they're still my faves, the fact I had a fat crush on them both helped but honestly I loved how layered their relationship was, the will-they-or-won't-they, and ngl the whole taboo aspect as well, which nowadays you get lots of shit for but I don't care because I know better than stress over the morality of drawings I found pleasing as a kid.
I still have a preference for pairings that are unofficial but often teased and have a complicated and not flat-out romantic relationship, those are definitely the most fun to think about for me. When it comes to Sebaciel for me nowadays it's probably more nostalgia related than anything but I still think they're very much interesting to see together.
I don't really "ship" tbh but I really, really wanted these two to be together.
I remember making this thread two years ago or so…
Because I like the idea of the alpha-est male being violated by a pathetic coombrain nerd
Both being entitled, arrogant and foul mouthed helps
It is not really about love - just power dynamics, which could be a perverted way to romantic or sexual relationships. Maybe, overcoming their issues and learning to be somehow functioning people
But canon have like zero chemistry between them, which is sad
I dunno, I can't relate to any "good" characters in media. Any protagonist - I am just thinking:"why are you like that".
Well, I am not really relating to any edgy characters also, but at least they are more fun to observe, I guess
I'm super into a bunch of Uma Musume ships right now but Fine/Shakur is my way.
i love eremika. I like ships when the girl loves the boy more. And eren is cute and hot.
Not really a ship but since the series ended prematurely I like to imagine that these two are finally able to be together again.
So cute, I wish Casca didn't go full retard it really didn't do anything for the plot/conflict.
lillie and selene from pokemon sun and moon, one of my comfort games that i replay when times are hard
Takeru and Sumika from Muv-Luv Alternative. A relationship that literally surpassed space and time.
I'll admit I ship Shinji x Kaworu, but no pictures can really express their unconditional love.
What the fuck is there to admit? lmao we all ship that
They were my favorite characters in s1 and then s2 rewarded me by making their relationship the best in the show and the emotional crux of the ending. Bonus points for making a lot of people very mad.
nah, I don’t like how they “save” each other, especially Kaworu being a prince charming for Shinji, equivalent of a manic pixie fallen from the sky anime girl
It’s the same shit as marishin, which is disgusting, though I like that kind of dynamics, but not for them
Kaworu x Rei, on the other hand, is more chill, for they being similar by nature and not having a co-dependence for each other: they are both calm and cool, while Kaworu is more suave
and Rei is more delicate: a comfy pairing with no dramatic romance. Bonus points for more elegant adult eroticism
of course I am a minority, but I don’t care for kaoshin, even despite it is canon
They have one of the most pure relationships in shoujo.
It's so refreshing to see a shoujo romance where the male love interest is actually caring towards the girl, and not an abusive asshole. Kyo did start out mean, but it wasn't some kind of "Boys over Flowers" shit at least.
>tfw your gf traps an evil god in her own blood on the moon to protect you
I read the manga 10 years after I watched the anime and they come off as so in love to me. Crona was always my favorite and of course I thought "yeah, these two would work" back then but reading everything really solidified it for me.
Intense, world-ending ships are always my favourite though. Homura and Madoka hold a similar place in my heart.
jill and kisaragi H.
it's a crackship, but i don't mind.

Maybe you know already, but there is a term for this - check out sekaikei
I really like Percabeth, but I'm extremely biased as this was my first real ship. Helps that it's canon, and even beyond the weird "make Annabeth a black girl" thing, it's still my favorite based on cringey fanfiction and old tumblr nostalgia alone.
I heavily shipped Duo and Heero from Gundam Wing as a middle schooler. They were all based around Heero being cold and withdrawn and Duo making the effort break through his walls, I found it so heartwarming
I wanted Relena to die
I haven’t shipped since The Legend of Korra was still coming out. Korra x Bolin was my favourite ship and I was a little heartbroken when I realized Bolin was just meant to be a joke character.
I haven’t had any real ships in a while the fandom culture killed the fun for me and I became a very sour “only canon matters” fan.
I like the concept of Momo and Jirou together but I don’t feel like they had a lot of screen time together in the anime.
I like the idea of a girl brought up in an uptight environment learning to let loose and be comfortable with herself with the help of her laidback crush. Similarly I like the idea of a very chill and laidback tomboy falling in love with a feminine rich girl who spoils her with gifts.
Momo and Todoroki have a bit more screen time together. I’d like to think they relate with each other given the immense struggle and pressure they face from their families as well as struggling to connect with their peers.
For me it's Nora and Asuma from Patlabor.
