Cordy's Lovely Blog Party is still in full swing, guys! We have till the end of February to participate in this fun Valentine's Day themed party, so do hop on over there and check it out. (Oh no! I said hop! I'm as bad as the stores that already have Easter candy out already! *wails*)
Today I want to share five non-canon ships with you.
Five what, you say? Well, I'll try to explain it. In the fandom world, "ships" are used to describe relationships us fans support. For instance, fans of Pride and Prejudice "ship" Darcy and Elizabeth as a couple.
(Make sense? No? Good. Let's move on.)
Non-canon refers to relationships that aren't actually in the story. Basically, it's wishing that two people in a particular story were a couple, even though they never were. For instance, Mr. Collins and Elizabeth would be a non-canon ship. (PLEASE don't tell me anyone actually ships them....)
Anyways. If that doesn't make sense, sorry. You'll catch on, trust me.
One more note--thanks to the lovely Miss March, (who can count, it seems ;)) it was recently brought to my attention that I actually included six couples in my last "Five Couples post", not five. Oops. :/ Thank you for pointing that out, Miss March! But apparently this is a theme with me, because I planned this post to contain FIVE couples, but again came up with six. :P *sigh* Oh well. (At least I actually counted them correctly this time. :P)
In no particular order, here they are...
1) Bucky and Wanda from the Marvel movies
Ever since watching Civil War, I decided that Bucky and Wanda was my ship. Because Bucky NEEDS someone and so does Wanda. She's so lost after her brother dies and I just think these two would be perfect for each other. You want a list of reasons? Here you go:
-They're both former Hydra experiments so HELLO common backstories
-She could probably use her powers to heal him
-They both have the same color schemes: red and black
-They've both gone through Very Traumatic Losses
-THEY JUST NEED EACH OTHER OKAY???
Bonus: They have similar tastes in makeup :P
2) Enjolras and Eponine from Les Miserables
Because, after all, Marius had Cosette. Yes, I get it that Eponine pines after him and gives her life for him and all that jazz, but seriously?? Didn't she even notice the handsome revolutionary leader in the red jacket? (Not to mention, Marius wasn't exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer, just sayin'.)
Also, it would have been great to see Enjolras fall in love with someone other than France and then get a bunch of teasing from the barricade boys about it. You know, things like "who cares about your lonely soul, Enjolras, remember??"
He needed a taste of his own medicine. :P
(PS. I went from having no videos on hand for Enjolras and Eponine to having two after a quick youtube search. I like them both a lot, so here's a link to the second. Honestly, most of my love for the second one is because BBC Robin Hood audio is used.) (!!!!)
3) Finn and Rey from Star Wars
All I know if I'm probably going to be disappointed, thus why they're on this list. :P
4) Allan and Kate from BBC Robin Hood
I still would like to give the producers of BBC Robin Hood a piece of my mind. Because they had something PERFECT going and then they ruined it and made Kate into the most annoying flibbertigibbet in all of cinema and UGH.
Why why why.
I couldn't find a Allan/Kate video that I liked, so instead you get a video about Allan. But 1:05 to 1:16 has some particularly cute Allan/Kate moments so it works, I guess. *shrugs*
5) Gwaine and Morgana from BBC Merlin
I just really think this would have been awesome. (But BBC likes to ignore awesome possibilities in its tv shows, methinks.)
6) Alf and Laura from Lark Rise to Candleford
Okay, everyone's going to hate me for this, I think. For the record, of Laura's romances, Fisher is my favorite. She should have ended up with him. BUT, since this is a post of non-canon ships, I thought I'd talk about these two. (Because I assume non-canon ships are ones that never happened at all, not romances that didn't end happily.)
So yes. Ever since, like, episode one of Lark Rise to Candleford, I expected Laura and Alf to end up together. They were such good friends! And he liked her! And they were just sweet and were childhood friends and—
Nope. Didn't happen. *sigh*
Do I like Alf and Minnie together? Yes. Do I think it's nice that Alf and Laura were still friends despite not being a couple? Yes. Do I like Laura with Daniel? Last time I watched it, I didn't, but I may change my mind. Does it make sense that Alf and Laura didn't "fit" because of the different lifestyles they chose? Yeah...
Do I still wish Alf and Laura had been a couple? *whispers * Kind of. :P
Do you ship any of the couples I listed?
Who are some of your non-canon ships?
