Happy birthday torigates
! I hope you have a fantastic day :D
So apparently Manu Bennett was promoted to series regular for season two of Arrow? Which, apart from being exciting news in itself, MAYBE MEANS MORE CHANCE OF SEEING ROSE EVENTUALLY?????????? I LIVE IN HOPE.
And a meme that's been floating around:How many (and which) ships have you shipped from the time you started watching a show until the show ended and you still continue to ship? Two rules:
1. Must be a show you watched at least part of as it was airing on tv (because catching up on a show in three weeks is different from watching it live over a span of years).
Or have been watching it for a good amount of time, whatever, I can't necessarily remember what shows I actually saw live and what I didn't after a few years, THIS MEME IS NOT THE BOSS OF ME.2. The show has to be over with (i.e. no current airing shows count because you don't know which ships crash and burn or get together in the last few episodes and that might affect your shipping).
This was ... actually fewer than I expected? But still a lot, because I watch a lot of television.
Justin/Alex (Wizards of Waverly Place), Helo/Athena (Battlestar Galactica), John/Teyla (Stargate Atlantis), John/Aeryn (Farscape), Ted/Veronica (Better Off Ted), Michael/Lindsay (Arrested Development), Richard/Kahlan/Cara (Legend of the Seeker), Buffy/Faith (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Lamb/Veronica (Veronica Mars), Peter/Claire (Heroes), Clark/Lois (Smallville), Nathan/Haley (One Tree Hill), Beck/Jade (Victorious), Sasha/Payson (Make It or Break It), Ryan/Kelly (The Office) ... probably others I'm forgetting, whatever.
Some of those I still care about more than others; others, obviously, weren't right from the beginning of the show, but I think "from the time the characters were introduced" counts. And Ryan/Kelly only very nearly qualifies, but whatever, the show is almost over and they're only going to be on one more episode, I very much doubt whatever happens then will make me stop shipping it when several seasons of barely there-ness and the characters generally being kind of terrible people didn't. (And sadly I couldn't include Ryan/Taylor, because I only started shipping them in season four
like everybody else with a soul
, but I still ship them a lot, so they're there in spirit.)
