Day 21 - Favourite ship

Again, there are three major contenders.

#3) Xena and Gabrielle, Xena: Warrior Princess

If I'm not mistaken, this was my first real same-sex 'ship. While it was not my first disappointment in terms of 'shipping (a 'shipper's life is not easy; you're destined to get your heart ripped out a dozen times), it is definitely one of the 'ships that captured my imagination. The important part in 'shipping is that it affects you, personally, not that it necessarily gets resolved on-screen.

#2) Willow and Tara, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

There are no words to express how amazing this relationship was.

#1) Jean-Luc Picard and Beverly Crusher, Star Trek: The Next Generation

My very first official fandom. My very first official 'ship. I waited seven years for that Ready Room kiss. It was in this episode, pictured above, The Naked Now, that I fell for Captain Picard and Dr. Crusher. That's the very second episode.

In my head, The Great Bald One and The Auburn Goddess are living together in Labarre, France, post-movie-era. Never you mind that hussy Kamala, or that devious wench, Vash. Ignore Nella Darren. Don't even think about that bimbo from his time in The Nexus. And, as far as I'm concerned, Anij from Insurrection was an exceedingly poor substitute for Beverly.

Honourable mentions include:
Janeway/Seven, Star Trek: Voyager (Gina Dartt's fault!)
Jack/Irina, Alias (I just wanted those two to bury the hatchet and be a family again.)
Sydney/Vaughn, Alias (I squeed like a squeeing thing when they got together.)
Julian/Jadzia, Star Trek: Deep Space 9
Lois/Clark, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman
... probably too many more to mention.

Coming up... )
