My Shipping Wall
I know why you all ask. I know why everyone yearns to go to a con with staff presence. I know why you all want to be staff. Yeah, even you, sitting there denying that you'd ever join staff! We've all heard that little cover-up! Baby, let me break it down for you without breaking down this old forum's filter.
The internet exists for one thing and one thing alone.
The Hottest and Sexiest of Hottest Sexy Ships.
And just for the good of BZP, The Internet, and The Universe, I'm here to soothe your longings, my little fiesty shippers. Instead of living on in our denial, keeping our sweet sweet fantasies hidden in blog comments, instant messengers, and dreams, I say we come out of our little closets. I think it's high time we wear our allegiances loudly and proudly. We live in an age of no shame, baby! I'm going to expose my most beautiful inner thoughts and I encourage you to do the same. I'm hooking you up with some hot little images for our sigs and blogs and wherever you feel the need. Whew! ;;; Let's get this list going before I get ahead of myself, though. Just after I open a window.
Good old Deevs and Smeag. These guys have been layin' it down for as long as I can remember. Their cute little passive-aggressive act isn't fooling anybody; behind those insults is the purest of pure relationships. And it just makes my little girlish heart leap between my ears.
And they are just so darn adorable.
I gotta be honest, when I first heard about the RaygXDV movement, I wasn't convinced. Bromance? Really? Ewww! Or so I thought. Despite my doubt, these Brotherly Lovers soon proved me wrong. Hot, fast, exciting; they're like a Summer Fling that just keeps giving all year.
Oh watch it there! Hee hee!
Sometimes when Deevs is busy moving to Portland or tweeting about Football or Lacrosse or whatever the heck he's talking about, my heart aches for some action. That's where Smeag+Rayg tides me over. Like a quick rebound, these guys give you everything you need to make it through the sudden gush of lonely nights in front of your screen. Don't get me started on DVxRaygxSmeag, though. That's just a little too much for me to handle right now.
My phone doesn't have a three-way function. Good thing I've got this trio of studs! All you Die-Hard Music fans out there, hold on to your rainbow-colored toe socks. Windeh (that's my personal canon name for him!) is a heart-throb piano master, and with B6 on the vocals and Smeag on the everything else, they lull your ears and heart right into ecstasy. And just look at them! You got the Cutie-Pie, the Hippie, and the Steady! What more could you ask for? What more will you ever NEED? Oh, yeah.
Little Arpy is just so darned kawaii! And who better to pair him with than the Stranger To Kawaii, Smeag! These two couldn't be more different, and sure, there's not as many hot conversations to quote and try to prove this shipping is legit. But when has that ever stopped us before?? Smearpy lovers, stay strong! Your over-analyzing and ripping apart of every little interaction and glance will pay off! And never forget: we'll always have this fateful screencap!
After a heated internet debate that convinced me of RaygXDeev, I soon realized I needed some more filler for my personal Bromance folder. And what could be hotter than some SmeagXMak. No, seriously. Just look at them there. Do you still need convincing? You members, always demanding logic! Just follow your heart! The tongue, the closest of closest embraces, the love for black leather knock-offs. It was meant to be. They gave my private collection just the spicy kick it needed.
Jeez, finally some non-main-character stuff! I mean, sure, it's a given that you gotta ship a dating sim's cover art character with EVERYONE, but let's admit it. Sometimes you just wanna play the game as another character! With all the hotness going down here, why should one character have them all? Share and share alike, baby. I know I'm coming from left field with this one, but I can't be the only one who notices ToM and DV's longing glances. You can see that Red Aura just burning when the eyes of these star-crossed lovers lock. I'll definitely be writing fanfic and defending the OTP of these two for years to come.
Like the Bromance, I just needed some more OT3. But now and then, you'll find you wanna mix it up even more. I mean, eventually you get used to the things you love and need MORE. More edgy! More facial hair! SmeagXJanus? A timeless given. Just thinking about it makes me need to crawl into the freezer. What girl (or guy, I don't judge!) hasn't found themselves wishing they were that slice of pizza there? Oh man. The green peppers and onions on that pizza just doesn't do them the proper justice. Janus is seriously the hottest, gayest straight guy I have ever married. But the only thing better than having him in my house is listening to him talk about his escapades with Smeag. Whoooooo ~
After a hard day flaming the nerds who try to pair all these manly men with girls (really? REALLY?? What is wrong with you people?), sometimes I need some tender lovin' to help me get to sleep. Mak+ToM always provide. And they ALWAYS dress in style. The grace, the looks, the softness of these two bishonen are the inspiration behind so many fanart galleries and fancomics out there. My favorite happens to be Mak+ToM: A New Victorian Romance. These guys in early 1900s get-up? Mmmmhmmmmm.
Their quirkiness is so refreshing, too!
Ties and dress shirts are oh-so-fancy, but these two are so moe, it's the perfect balance. Innocent and unassuming, even imagining (and drawing!) a blush-and-smooch scene between these two gets me through the worst of days. I have another picture of ToM in sunglasses, and yeah, someday I'm going to make the best photoshop of these two, together in their shades. Deal with it, my fine connoisseurs, because they're the newest, smokin'est thing on the block. But be gentle. These two are so sweet my cavaties have cavaties.
This is the only girl you're gonna find on my list. But even Hardcore Fangirls need their exceptions. Bryan and this bottle, lovingly nicknamed Beerina by fans worldwide, are the perfect couple. Because honestly. Some days your mother's gonna call. She's gonna commend you on the life you lead; a perfect housewife in a perfect relationship. And that's so far from the truth, you have to describe your relationship as if it were Bryan and Beerina's amazing married dynamic just to convince her. And why not? Beerina, she's always in the kitchen. In fact, she's already in the fridge getting just what Bryan needs. She always knows. Just look at Bryan's face, too. He's going to be taking care of this bottle until death do them part.
Whoa, whoa, ladies, please. There is now enough Rayg for everbody. Mmm, mmm, good. And don't give me that "What? But he's the same person!" garbage. That's not bad! That's what makes it hot! The only thing greater than finding Rayg in the background of any pic is finding TWO Raygs in the background. Because they're always up to somethin' fun. And I envy them; they're never alone and never short on narcissistic love declarations and old-married-couple-type arguing. Not to mention they know each other quite well.
Shoo! Typing all that up took a few trays of ice cubes, several glasses of water, and a long bath, but I hope it was well worth it. Now go, dreamers. Fantasizers. Fellow Shippers! And no need to just use my images here; have a little fun and get/photoshop some pics of your own OTPs! Fill your sigs, your hearts; reach out and touch everyone you can. Whatever team(s) you're on, wear it loud and proud. No more playing footsie around the bushes with these halfway-there inquiries and criticisms. Embrace it. We're here for you, baby.
