R.I.P. it or Ship It

by - 4:09 PM

Hey, young bloods! Inspired by the lovely Anna @ Annaish, I'll be playing R.I.P. it or Ship It on the blog today! I've plugged some of my favorite book characters into a random generator and generated two at a time - and now, I'll decide if I ship the pairing or it should die in the fires of Mordor.

Min (Wheel of Time) + Emily De Quincey (Thomas De Quincey Trilogy) = ALL THE SHIPS.

FREAKING LESBIAN POWER COUPLE, RIGHT HERE. If your name is "gender norms" you'd better watch out, because these two ladies will absolutely destroy you.

Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter) + Patroclus (Song of Achilles) = Ultimate bromance?

Okay, I don't know if I could see these two in a relationship. But they are both quiet and introspective and have a love for the natural world, so I could totally see them as best friends - Patroclus eating lunch at the Ravenclaw table with Luna or Luna showing Patroclus the magic fauna around Troy.

Arya (Inheritance Cycle) + Mat Cauthon (Wheel of Time) = It would crash and burn, but I'd pay to watch it.

Ohhhhhh man. Mat could get away with ZERO CRAP if he dated Arya. Zip, zero, nil, literally none, nothing whatsoever. I'd pay to see him try.

Iseult (Witchlands) + Faramir (The Lord of the Rings) = Definite bffs

Once again, I couldn't see them as a romantic pairing. But they're both very shy, use their brains in battle, and have experience being the family disappointment. So I'd say they'd get along great - maybe not as a couple, though.

Shahrzad (The Wrath & the Dawn) + Tris (The Circle Opens) = Meh

Shahrzad would definitely get on Tris's nerves, and Tris might get on Shahrzad's as well. I doubt they'd fight or actively hate each other - they'd probably tolerate the other person, but not feel any real connection or chemistry.


Let's chat! Do you ship any of these pairings? Do you have any other favorite ships involving these characters? (*COUGHCOUGHFARAMIRANDARAGORNCOUGHCOUGH*). Comment below and remember that you are all very beautiful pickles <3

  1. Please don't kill me....I haven't heard of these people. (AHHH I know I'm a terrible person!). This idea sounds awesome! I'm curious, would you ever ship Dean and Seamus from Harry Potter? I read somewhere that Rowling wanted them to be together, but thought it would be 'too distracting from the plot'. Is that true?

      Yes, I do! And that is true, yes :)

  2. I love rip it or ship it posts! They're so fun. Admittedly, I haven't heard of some of these people... But I agree about the Luna one. Besides, I'm one of the people who loves Neville and Luna. Awesome post!

    1. IKR? Yeah, I tried to pick a few (like Luna) who were pretty mainstream, but TRIS IS MY BEAN I COULDN'T RESIST.
      But have you considered.
      Neville and Ginny.
      Thank you!
