there are characters that you love and would protect them from harm at all costs
and then there are characters that you love but still wouldn’t hesitate to throw them overboard a ship
2. Talk About Three of the Most Important Ships Throughout Your Life
Sakura/Syaoran (Cardcaptor Sakura)
I shipped this from about twelve to fifteen or so, and through my need to find screencaps, I discovered fanfiction and fanart. I was enthralled. I spent much of my freshman year of high school looking up fanfic at the school computers and devouring as much as I could find, no matter how bad. NO REGRETS, BABY.
I discovered fandom and online communities through this ship, and part of me will always love it for that.
Percy/Marguerite (The Scarlet Pimpernel)
Look, they’re perfect okay. They are perfect and the books are perfect and I love them and their stupid faces and everything is perfect.
I have a lot of feelings about Percy and Marguerite. It’s my favorite book, so I’ve read the book about a thousand times, and I still can’t get through the garden scene without throwing the book across the room and sobbing. Because I care about their stupid selves.
This is for everyone in my life who thinks I’m incapable of shipping something healthy and romantic.
Marik/Bakura (YuGiOh: the Abridged Series)
Okay, so I was raised in a kind of intolerant, strict religious household, and I’m ashamed at how long it took me to overcome that upbringing and realize that there’s not anything wrong with homosexuality.
Right around the time I was making these realizations, I started watching YuGiOh Abridged, and shut up thiefshipping is canon and they are stupidly in love and they’re both idiots. This ship is important to my life because it was my first foray into slash, and it was one of the first steps of my evolution into a decent fucking human being.

- Hades: who's there?
- Persephone: it's September hope you're ready to bang like a screen door in a hurricane
I encounter this phenomenon at least once a week.
