1. List your top six ships

2. Put all of them in order of your love for them; 6 to 1, 1 being your favorite.

3. Name their fandom.

4. Supply photos for said people.
 (If possible)
5. Tag six people. If you have OTP, why not do it?



6. Akane Tendo and Ranma Saotome (Ranma 1/2)

The scarlet road to heaven and the wild horse are like yin and yang. They're too young. Half the time, he's a girl. Akane's got pride and a vicious temper. He's got pride and superior martial arts skills. They're too young. And yet.

5. Max Sterling and Miriya Parino (Robotech)

The whole, "She's beautiful. I love her. I've got to marry her." v. "He bested in me in battle, he must die so I can reclaim my honor." And yet, after he definitively kicks her in ass in hand-to-hand, she's begging him to kill her and her shame and he's like, "No, I gotta marry you." And they kiss. And for the first time ever, she's experiencing something other than rage, shame, or the thrill of bloodshed. And they fall in love and make peace for all human and Zentraedi kind.

4. Aeryn Sun and John Crichton (Farscape)

If you don't know, I'm sure I can't explain.

3. Simran and Raj (Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayengye)

Her, "We should have run away together when we had the chance." Him, "No. We can hide from strangers but we can't run away from the ones we love. We're doing it with your father's blessing and he's going to give it to us." Also, he fasted all day along with her. All day. And wasn't looking for credit. That right there.

2. Han Kyul and Go Eun Chan (Coffee Prince)

*flailings of joy*

1. Han Sung and Yu Ju (Coffee Prince)

It's perfect in its imperfections. They are neither very good nor very wise enough of the time to spare each other or themselves tears, and yet, they went from strength to strength.

Other ships (because I had such a hard time choosing). Some happened just as I liked. Others I didn't want to see unfold the way they did. Cordelia/Angel, that means you.:

Keith and Watts (Some Kind of Wonderful )

She looks good wearing his future. And that kiss.

Isabeau and Navarre (Ladyhawke)


Lucius Vorenus and Niobe (Rome)


Allison and Joe Dubois (Medium)


Mulder and Scully (the X-Files)

"Mulder, it's me." + "Scully, it's me.", his hand on the small of her back. The hell and back again (and again, and again.) His lack of self-preservation; her commitment to science. *sigh*

Cordelia Chase and Angel (Angel)

"Robot chipmunks on ice." Him hiding money around the office because she can smell it.

Kim Sam-soon/Hyun Jin-heon (My Lovely Samsoon)


Jess and Joe (Bend It Like Beckham)


Josh Neff and Alice Kinnon (The Last Days of Disco)


Scarlett and Snake Eyes (GI Joe)


Aerin-sol and Tor-sola (The Hero and the Crown)
No picture. Sorry.

Farreals?! How come? I have committed fic! I was so mad at how the show chose to do it, though. But yeah. I was also a straight up Buffy/Giles shipper. They were my entry into Buffy. >.>

Mulder and Scully forever. Their "It's me" gives me a thrill to this day.

Simran and Raj! Han Kyul and Eun Chan! Yu Ju and Han Seung! Sam Soon and Sam Shik!

I think I'd have too many to do this meme. And possibly too many of them would be from books to get pictures.

Simran and Raj thrilled me. When he fasted with her on karwa chauth? When he prayed that she get what she wanted? OMG. I LOVE THEM SO MUCH. I LOVE THAT MOVIE. OMG, he fasted too. !!!! Didn't eat until she did!

And her mom was like, "Run!" And Raj was all, "No."

Yu Ju and Han Seung make me so happy. On their wedding day , when they met up before the vows, and couldn't even speak, just stood there with their hands over their mouths all gleeful and disbelieving that they were doing it? !!!

Why not try this with just 6?

Yes!

:)

A friend of mine pulled her signature dance move from the Ranma 1/2 opening credits (first series). She was just as cute as Akane if not cuter. :)

I didn't know you loved Farscape, too.

I followed Farscape religiously through the first two seasons, but then personal stuff started up (bought a house, broke up with boyfriend, married VC, moved to NY), and I just fell too far behind.

I need to get the other seasons on Netflix.

I'd watched it intermittently when it debuted and fell off about the time it became clear that Crichton and Aeryn were the series' otp. Then I caught up this summer and am in love.

K-X-X!

How'd you love it?

Did you?

Wasn't it beautiful?

Now what do I do with my life?

Continue to be the wonderful person that is you? Also, watch ReGenesis (http://community.livejournal.com/cdntvonthedl/tag/regenesis)!

I adored it! I went to watch it on the strength of your OTP meme--I'm like, I like coffee and romance and I need something to watch--and at first I was confused that you would put the mundane, flawed romance above the romance with, you know, a girl pretending to be a boy, which is, like, my favorite implausible romance cliche ever. But half-way through the series I completely got it. Han Yu Ju is an amazing character. The writing for her and Han Sung was spot-on. This show made me soooo happy.

Also, watch ReGenesis!

Hmm. Will it make me happy?

YAY!

Hmm. Will it make me happy?

Hmm. Very good question. When it is good tv, it is brilliant and has wonderful, multi-layered women (at least to me). But, no, I don't think it will because people you like, or are getting to like, may die or be maimed. ReGenesis is brilliant (when it's good) but people die, jerks continue to jerk, fail to learn life lessons, and there are tears and bad makeup in the series finale.

For happiness, though, you can watch My Name is Sam Soon (http://community.livejournal.com/jdramas/tag/my+name+is+kim+sam+soon) or The Last Days of Disco (http://skywardprodigal.livejournal.com/631947.html?thread=2699659#t2699659). At least, I love them. I hope you will too. They are romances that make me happy. I root for difficult heroines and they end up with (sorta) the right guy.

As for Han Yu Ju, I did not expect to fall in love with her, but she is so very real and human, as is Han Sung, and so much of what they go through (put each other through) is petty, or cruel, or cowardly, but !!!!! Because !!!! They are so lovely when they get it right. And !!!! I didn't expect them to take primary place, but even when they make bad decisions, they do so for the right reasons. I don't know where else I've seen whim and insecurity play out this way in the absence of deliberate cruelty or stupidity. YUM.

I think Han Yu Ju is one of the best roles ever written for a woman. Period.

Food figures prominently in My Name is Kim Sam Soon, by the way. :D

Also, there is Love (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=AAA1WD0P) Song (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=7WYK2WW7) which stars Monica and Chris Kane with Rainbow Sun Francks (whom I just met, and wow is he nice) as a hilariously rigid buppie prince.

Han Yu Ju is in what is usually a thankless role; I thought she was just going to be some Lana Lang-type love interest at best. I didn't expect any effort to be put into making her sympathetic or interesting. I was taken aback first when she was very kind, and then later when she was very self-aware. I never really see self-aware characters on television, especially female ones. Characters who are capable of assessing their motives and actions and occasionally ever changing their behavior accordingly? Oh my God.

I don't know where else I've seen whim and insecurity play out this way in the absence of deliberate cruelty or stupidity.

Yes! So true.

And, yay, things to watch!
