Shipping Challenge  

Pick 3 of your OTPs, without looking at any of the questions.

randomly picked three. I have too many tbh.
  1. Zuko/Katara (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
  2. Peter Pan/Alice (Disney)
  3. Jack/Ralph (Lord of the Flies)
1. What made you ship 3?

I just read this book two weeks ago and I can't figure out how I even took interest.  Everything happened so fast.  I remember reading it, being all "whatever whatever... Woah there.  Jack and Ralph 'stared at each other, baffled in love and hate'?  What."  And then... overnight, I was taken by the S.S. Jalph.  Thinking back, I can't believe it wasn't "love at first sight" for me.  Jalph has all the tropes that I absolutely adore.  The story is a power struggle between Jack and Ralph.  Jack, who represents anarchy, and Ralph, who represents order and civilization.  I have such weak spot for couples who double up as rivals.  But when added with ~tension~ where it's not even subtext anymore, I just asdfghjkl.

2. Is 2 canon?

I wish.  They're not even in the same movie.

3. What are your favorite moments between 1?

Anything from The Southern Raiders (especially that hug?), in Sozin's Comet where Zuko takes Azula's lightning for Katara, and of course that scene in The Crossroads of Destiny that made everyone jump ships.  Okay, not everyone, but all the people with a right mind.

4. If you could put 3 in any scenario, what would it be?

UH... five years later (17 is the minimum age I can imagine them sexing it up) when they're back in boarding school, and can they be roommates also?  And I'm going to add a bunch of sexual tension for good measure, as well as pent up emotions.  Also, Jack totally going all-hunter-crazy on Ralph and acting like the poor boy's his prey.  But Ralph is kind of okay with it in a somewhat masochistic way?  And since they're both (assuming Catholic?) boys and considering the time period, they're both awkward and can't come to terms why they want to get in each other's pants so bad.  Ugh, and then Jack gives Ralph a hickey one night, and since they're at an ~all boys~ school, Ralph gets all embarrassed and calls in sick because he was marked by fucking Jack Merridew.  God, this AU.  Plot bunnies are having plot bunnies.

5. Favorite line said between 1?

Zuko: This isn't fair.  Everyone else seems to trust me now.  What is it with you?
Katara: Oh, everyone trust you now?  I was the first person to trust you, remember Back in Ba Sing Se.  And you turned around and betrayed me.  Betrayed all of us.
Zuko: What can I do to make it up to you
Katara: You really want to know?  Hmm, maybe you could re-conquer Ba Sing Se in the name of the Earth King.  Or, I know.  You could bring my mother back.

6. Did everything you want happen between 2?  If not, what did you want to see?

Nothing happened.  Peter/Alice is literally a crossover shipping that appeared in my head one day.  Though, I'd want to see them in a movie together called "Alice in Neverland" where either Wendy's gone and moved on, or Wendy's there and gets all jealous bitch on Alice, but Peter loves Alice anyway so stfu Wendy.  And Peter and Alice would play hide and seek, and throw rocks at Hook, and do whatever kids with overactive imaginations do.

7. If you had to pick a favorite, 1, 2, or 3?

I really can't.  But, I guess Zutara.  I cried, sobbed, laughed, smiled, had heart attacks, and died for this ship.

8. Would a crossover work between the three?

That would be super interesting, but Zuko and Katara probably wouldn't fit in well (since all the other characters are 12 years old...).  Can I say that Jack and Peter would totally be best friends?  UGH omg, their hair colors would correspond perfectly.  Gingers and blondes.

9. Recommend a blog dedicated to 2.

I don't think there are any?  I talk about them a lot on my Tumblr though, so I guess SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION.

10. Recommend a fic about 3.

Retribution by Circadian Lily because jfc, it's the best fic I've ever read.

11. What is 1’s shipping name?


12. Favorite episode/chapter of 3?

Um, I should get these by now considering I love Lord of the Flies more than life and the book is right next to me but I'm too lazy to open it.  That chapter near the beginning where the boys are friends and Jack is always supporting Ralph's ideas, despite not always agreeing with them.  And their total bromance, and you know ~tension~.

13. Does anyone in real life know you ship 2?

Probably someone.  I talk most about Zutara and Jack/Ralph though tbh.  Especially Jack/Ralph.  And everyone agrees with me on that one, so s'all good.

14. Do you also ship 1’s actors?
