I was tagged by the lovely Mari over at Story and Somnancy. So! The rules are as follows:
Choose 5 OTPs without looking at the questions first, answer the questions, then tag five people.
- Valek and Yelena (The Study series by Maria V. Snyder)
- Arabella and Jonathan Strange (Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
- Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler (A Scandal in Bohemia by Arthur Conan Doyle)
- Tristan and Yvaine (Stardust by Neil Gaiman)
- Cath and Levi (Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell)
Do you remember the episode/scene/chapter that you first started shipping #5?
That would be when Cath read to Levi for freaking HOURS. The first time she did that, I mean.
Have you ever read fanfiction about #2?
No, but I feel like I have because whoever scripted the BBC adaptation wrote them a load of extra scenes.
Has a picture of #4 ever been your screen saver/profile picture/tumblr ID?
No, but that seems like it would be a cool desktop background. I want it now.
If #3 were to suddenly break up today, what would your reaction be?
Does that mean at some point prior to today they were actually together? Awesome!
Why is #1 so important?
Because he carved her a freaking butterfly. I can’t even.
Is #4 a funny ship or a serious ship?
Adorably awkward, mostly.
Out of all your ships listed, which ship has the most chemistry?
Cath and Levi maybe?
Of all the ships, which ship has the strongest bond?
Valek and Yelena. I love how Snyder doesn’t construct petty arguments between them for the sake of plot twists. All kind of other shit might be going down, but they’re good.
How many times have you read/watched #2’s fandom?
Twice. I read the book, then I watched the BBC show. I’d like to read it again one day, but not too soon. It’s a long ass book.
Which ship lasted the longest?
Jonathan and Arabella, I guess, since the book spans so many years.
How many times, if ever, has #5 broken up?
Once, sort of. Ish.
If the world was suddenly thrust into a zombie apocalypse, which would make it out alive, #1 or #3?
Definitely Valek and Yelena. They would actually work together, and they’re both pretty deadly. With Sherlock and Irene Adler, the question is more which of them would leave the other to the zombies first and save themselves.
Did #4 ever have to hide their relationship for any reason?
Briefly, for amusement purposes.
Is #5 still together?
Is #1 canon?
If all five ships were put into a couple’s Hunger Games, which couple would win?
Valek and Yelena. Did I mention how they’re deadly? Unless Yvaine did that thing I can’t tell you about because it’s a massive spoiler. Cath and Levi would be the deadest the fastest, though, I can tell you that.
Has anyone ever tried to sabotage #5’s ship?
Not intentionally, but Reagan got in the way a lot.
Which ship(s) would you defend to the death and beyond?
I feel like Cath and Levi are the only ones who can’t adequately defend themselves.
Have you ever spent hours a day going through #3’s tumblr page?
What I do in the privacy of my own Tumblr is none of your concern :p.
If an evil witch descended from the sky and told you that you had to pick one of the five ships to break up forever, which ship would you sink?
I might as well break up Sherlock and Irene before they do it for me.
