And Ships Sail

We humans are such suckers for love stories. Correction, we females are such suckers for love stories. We just love couples. I have always shipped people in books, in movies, movies trailers, co-stars, soaps, ads. Everywhere. Even random people on the streets.

My first book shipping was Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy. Even though everyone knows would end up together, they did start on the wrong foot. Darcy insulted Elizabeth, for God's sake! I was rooting for them so badly, throughout the book. When Darcy finally told Elizabeth- "I only thought of you" my only comment was "Atlast!" 

Then Harry Potter entered my life. Accompanied by fan-fiction; with some really weird shipping. How I hate them. I would rather stick to legit shipping.

When rumours of movie co-stars do the rounds( I do know it's mostly promotions, but still) I so wish the two of them get together. I know it doesn't affect my life but I was rooting for Priyanka and Shahid to be actually dating each other. ( Even now when I saw a recent Bru ad I was like aww, they look so good together)

I also love it when I find out that TV co-stars are dating each other. Couples I root for- Karan Kundra and Kritika Kamra( I think they were called  Arjun and Arohi in Kitni Mohabbat hai) and Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande ( Manav and Archana of Pavitra Rishta)

I think we girls also like shipping our single friends with each other. "Oh Ankur and Nilesh are so made for each other" "Esha should  totally meet Shaan" " I wish things work out between Riya and Aman, so cute they are!"

But, I don't like the ternd of merging the names of the couple you ship. Like Romione( Ron and Hermione) Drarry ( Draco and Harry, gulp) Kriyansh ( Kriya and Rayansh of a really sweet soap D3) 

And when Twilight fans keep on saying Team Edward and Team Jacob I feel like catching hold of them and almost shouting- "It's called shipping, it's not a bloody sports team you are supporting. "

Shipping is one of the random things I end up doing. " But it cannot be helped. "

P.S- I always wanted to ship Sirius Black with someone but couldn't think of anyone.


  1. I know EXACTLY how you feel. I too am a compulsive shipper. I ship everything with a pulse. Actually without one also (e.g. Drapple - Draco and apple). The only difference is that I have a fondness for non-canon or non-legit ships. The more non-legit they are, the more I will ship them!

  2. Ha Ha, I know you love non-legit shipping :P Who do you think we can ship Black with? One of us? Me or you? :P

  3. Grow Up Kidoo and stop watching so much TV !:)

  4. Hehe control ur anger bachhi :D...... the post was nice..... :D...i liked the love stories i knew about and didnt have a clue of the other soaps u talked about. though i would always think of them when i take a bath. but at least u know that the soaps u mentioned ar in my mind in my most private time!
