5 OTPs

This week’s 5 Fandom Friday is 5 OTPs. Doesn’t sound that hard, does it? Turns out it’s a lot more complicated than we thought.

But we did it! We found 5 ships we agree on. Yes, they’re technically just ships, but since they’re our favorite ships in their respective story, they are kinda our OTPs. Because we feel very strongly about them.

1. Barry Allen & Patty Spivot, The Flash

They were canon from the get-go, which we celebrated, because these two are so perfect for each other. They’re adorkable and cute, and just so much alike in the best ways. And then (spoiler!) they went ahead and screwed it up. And we had to watch our ship crash and burn and sink. Sucks.

2. Peggy Carter & Steve Rogers, Captain America: The First Avenger (and others)

They’re our favorite Marvel ship. Which is kind of sad, because they had their canon-time, but then Steve had to get himself frozen and wake up 70 years later to find Peggy being an old woman with Alzheimer’s (or something similar) and a family. Sad, sad day, especially for Steve. Peggy had 70 years to get over his “death”. That being said, we’re not saying that we don’t ship them with other people. We just loved their relationship in the MCU.

3. Alec Lightwood & Magnus Bane, The Mortal Instruments

They’re both awesome, and we love the contrast between the characters. They’re very cute together, and canon, which is fantastic.

4. Hermione Granger & Ron Weasley, Harry Potter

They were my first ship ever. I shipped it long before ever knowing that “shipping” could mean something other than “the act or business of transporting goods”. They’re adorable, especially because they’re so different.

5. Kala Dandekar & Wolfang Bodganow, Sense8

They’re a lot of awesome ships on Sense8, and our ships are all canon, which is awesome. Kala & Wolfang are just one of them, but we can’t list every single one, and we had to pick one because we have reached the end of this list. These two are very different, but they understand each other. And Kala sees the good in Wolfgang, which is something he cannot see in himself – that is always a good thing. They need each other. So of course we ship it.
