Writer's Block: Set Sail

Spike and Angel, President Roslin and Gaius Baltar, Harry and Hermione—shippers often find pairings that the original author might have overlooked. What coupling of fictional characters would you most like to see?

I never answer these usually, but I just have to point out that Spike/Angel is canon. If only a smidgen.

Thank you. Carry on.

Thanks! I'm seldom ever this brief, so enjoy it. :D (And I love your icon too, since Giles is, well, love.)

SO TRUE! We have to keep the Writer's Block honest, after all. :)

If only Joss had let us in on a few details of that "one" exception... :)

And I stand by Spike's use of "Angel" meaning that, y'know....other incarnations may have done many other things. ;)

Hah! I never thought of that. "Now, Angelus, well..."

I mean, if you pair the scene with they meet with Joss's commentary about them, I just cannot accept that they weren't totally going at it as much as all of the other pairings in the awesome fucked up vampire foursome of history. I mean, I don't take creators' commentary as canon, per se, but it only backs up what I has already assumed was going on so....I'll take it!

I didn't "get" Spangel until season 5 of Angel, when they behaved like a bickering married couple. Then that remark, and the notion that William the Bloody and Angelus were up for anything back in the day...and yeah. It seems all too likely!

Actually, my thought when I first saw the two of them oncreen together, back in Sunnydale, was "Look at you two, quarreling like an old married couple."

Turns out they were. Don't know what that says about Sirius and Lupin.

I'm sure J.K. Rowling will someday admit to their brief love affair from their wild school days. ;)

As for Spike and Angel and their early onscreen interactions, I thought one of the darkest funny moments (or funniest dark moments) was in the season 2 finale, when Spike leaps out of his wheelchair and starts whaling on Angelus with a metal bar. He just obviously takes such pleasure in it...

I'm inclined to think that it was just one time and that they were both very drunk.
Dec. 16th, 2008 10:05 pm (UTC)
That seems likely enough. Some exotic alcohol, perhaps. :)

Is "shippers" a new slang term?
Dec. 10th, 2008 06:21 pm (UTC)
Not terribly new...I seem to remember learning about it when the X-Files was still on the air. "Ship" is short for "relationship," so shippers are those who believe in a semi-serious relationship between two characters.

Aslan and Susan.

Now *that* would be funny -- and a lot better than the way it played out in canon.

He's secretly driven wild by those nylons and lipsticks of hers...
Dec. 17th, 2008 04:10 pm (UTC)
Hey, I saw the 20th-birthday pix of her the other day. I could write that 'ship. :)
