5 Fandom Friday

Fictional Couples I Ship

Yeah… I couldn’t just pick 5 couples. Because I don’t just watch 5 shows. And even if I did just watch 5 shows, there’s more that one couple per show sometimes. So I’m just gonna go ahead and pick as many as I want, breaking the 5 Fandom Friday rule, but it’s Valentine’s Eve/ Friday the 13th/ I-don’t-care-I’ll-do-what-I-want-day. But I think that The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick would approve!! Not only did I do a list of current couples that I’m shipping. I also went ahead and made a list of couples that I ship from shows that are no longer on the air. Click Here for that list (also couldn’t choose just 5 couples for that one either!) PS, spoilers ahead so tread lightly! You’ve been warned!

#1 – Brary from Downton Abbey

image

 

As of right now on the show, this has not even been hinted at, but I know I’m not the only one who dreams of the day when Lady Mary and Tom Branson just join forces to become a serious Downton Abbey power couple. And I think the late Lady Sybil and the late Matthew Crawley would approve of this union. Plus Tom and Mary are equally better than the people they have individually been courting or been courted by!

#2 – Captain Swan from Once Upon a Time

image

If anything happens to break Emma and Hook up, I will be boycotting Once Upon a Time. I have loved their story and they are such a great couple. She makes him a better man, he makes her a better woman. It’s everything a fictional relationship should be!!

#3 – Zade from Hart of Dixie

image

 

In the same vein as the Emma/ Hook union, if anything happens to break apart Zoe Hart and Wade Kinsella I will be boycotting! I love them together. Incidentally, they also make each other better people and with a baby on the way, they are truly becoming a wonderful and inspiring couple to watch!

#4 – Raylicity from Arrowimage

All you Olicity shippers out there are going to hate my life, but I don’t dig Ollie and Felicity together. I liked him with Laurel, before she lost her edge! And I loved him with Sara, before she lost her life. But Felicity… I’m just not feeling it. But there’s something so delightful about the growing tension of Raylicity!! And I ship them so hard!! So, sorry my lovely Olicity shippers, but Raylicity all the way!!

#5 – SkyeWard from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

image

 

Sure, he’s gone rogue and is working for the bad guys, but do we really believe that he’s gone bad? And do we really believe that his love for Skye can’t totally redeem him? We do not believe that! Not for one second. There is good in him… I can feel it!

 

#6 – Jemily from Revenge

image

 

Ok.. Revenge is killing me on the Jack and Emily front. Why, why, why would she even consider a relationship with Ben when good old Jack has been biding his time. When he walked up that hill to Ben’s house and saw them kissing… NOOOOOOOOOO!!!! After all this time. Here’s hoping they get things together before the end of the series.

#7 – JessNick from New Girl

image

 

Jess and Nick have certainly had their ups and downs. And I’m gonna go ahead and admit that I refused to watch their break up. REFUSED. Especially after THAT kiss and the fact that they belong together. They just do!! Sure, Ryan is adorable and a wonderful distraction till Nick gets his shiz together, but there is a serious expiration date on that relationship. And it’s because Nick and Jess belong together. They are like Ross and Rachel, like Toast and Butter, like Netflix and Mac and Cheese!! Meant…To…Be!

 

#8 – OutlawQueen from Once Upon a Time

image

 

HEARTBREAK! That’s how I felt at the end of the winter finale of Once Upon a Time. Rumpbelle and OutlawQueen both took a hit this season. But I can’t believe that Regina and Robin have seen their last steamy kiss. Magical town barrier or not! Keep hope alive for this couple, because the powers that be over at ABC know what we want!!

 

#9 – FitzSimmons from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

image

 

They are literally called FitzSimmons on the show. They belong together. Their names make up the perfect shipper name. Did I flirt with the idea of Trip and Simmons? Sure. But all along I knew that Fitz belonged with Simmons and Simmons with Fitz, plus Trip is dead now (RIP) so there’s no chance f0r Trimmons.

 

#10 – Caryl from the Walking Dead

image

 

This one is one that we have been waiting for for a long time! It’s been building and building and so far we only have cursory glances and that reunion that brought all Caryl shippers to tears! Why didn’t he kiss her then? WHY? I tell ya, AMC may just be the Kingpin of the will they won’t they at this point in the list.

 

#11 – Jacknye from Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

wpid-screenshot_2015-02-13-10-25-22-1.png

I take it back. Detective Inspector Jack Robinson and Miss Phryne Fisher hold the title for biggest onscreen teases!! Chances are you haven’t seen this one as it’s a show that airs in Australia, but thanks to the magic that is Netflix, you can catch up on the two current seasons available. Season three is currently in production. Do yourself a favor and get on team Jacknye right now!!! It’s completely worth it.

 

#12 – Snowborn from Game of Thrones

image

 

This one may be a surprise for you. Seeing as they have had zero onscreen moments together. She’s off in Westeros raising dragons and conquering kingdoms. He’s over in Castle Black battling the impending doom of that winter that keeps on coming along with all the creepy threat of the White Walkers. But their paths are drawing closer together and the entire series is called A Song of Fire and Ice. Hello?? Fire-breathing dragons… huge wall of ice?? You do the math on that one.

 

#13 – SnowBarry from The Flash

image

 

And last but not least we have SnowBarry. Now the relationships on The Flash are tricky. If we’re talking comic book canon, everyone knows that Barry marries Iris. But is that the direction that The CW is going to take? Will WestAllen ever get it together? Personally I don’t ship Iris and Barry (sorry WestAllen shippers!) I also don’t ship Caitlin and Firestorm, though I know that according to comic book canon Caitlin is destined for the dark side. But I still loved the episode, Crazy For You where they grew closer and flirted with the idea of SnowBarry.

Shipping a couple doesn’t always mean that they will end up together. Much like real love and emotions, it’s not always rational. But the heart wants what it wants!! And I apologize for nothing! Every ship has it’s place.

 

To talk more about the couples we ship on this Valentine’s Eve, come on over to Twitter @nerdinthecity tonight for my #NerdySlumberParty where we will be talking all about that four-letter word, Love. The party starts at 9pm EST and there will be giveaways and nerd talk. You do not wanna miss it!!

Watch This Show!

I know. I know. You don’t need a new show. You already have 7 that you just can’t miss. (Or is that just me?) But allow me to present to you Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. If Downton Abbey and Sherlock had a sassy love child, it would be Miss Fisher.

Meet Miss Phryne Fisher. Sassy, lady detective with a penchant for doing what she wants, when she wants and damn the consequences or danger! She is a modern women living in the 1920’s in upper class Australia. And she is truly fabulous from her clothes to her sleek bob to her devil may care attitude regarding convention.

Then there’s the very handsome and gentlemanly, Detective Inspector Jack Robinson. Love interest of Phryne who is constantly getting in the way of all Jack’s investigations causing the sparks to fly between them! Jack is a righteous man who always upholds justice, except when Phryne comes around and ruins all his efforts!

Next we have the adorable, budding romance between Phryne’s lady’s maid, Dot and Jack’s constable, Hugh. They are too precious for words. He’s a Protestant and she’s a devout Catholic. He’s a traditional man and she’s learning more and more about what it means to be a modern, independent woman. Which makes for adorable story!

The rest of the cast includes Cec and Bert, who are Phryne’s rough around the edges cabby’s who get the info from the rougher parts of town. Mr Butler who is Phryne’s butler, oddly enough. Aunt P is Phryne’s traditional high society Aunt who’s always shocked by Phryne’s shennanigans. Mac is Phryne’s lady doctor friend who throws convention to the dogs and helps Phryne when called upon. She also dresses in the most adorable pant suits. And finally Phryne’s ward, Jane. Taken in under Phryne’s roof along with Dot and any other young woman who may need some help.

In conclusion, this show is awesome and with only 2 series available on Netflix right now, it’s an easy binge watch. Give it a try and I dare you not to fall in love with it!

Thanks to my like-minded coworker, Emma for the recommendation!
