Weekly Discussion Post: Sail Your Ship!
by pockythoughts (pockythoughts)

current mood: silly

Does anybody know what time it is? Bonus points if your answer is "TOOL TIME", but no. It's Thursday night, and time for the weekly discussion post!

Your friendly neighborhood mod is in an obviously silly and shippy mood tonight, so we're going to have some fun with PAIRINGS. Here's how it goes:

Step 1 - Pick a favorite pairing.

Step 2 - Write a comment explaining why you like it/making a case for it/pimping it/etc. Think ship_manifesto in miniature form.

Step 3 - Comment on other people's comments.

Step 4 - ???

Step 5 - Profit!

And as always, please remember that debate is strongly encouraged but bashing of any ships or characters will earn you a swift kick to the rear end. Have at it, guys! <3

They're best friends and roommates and I may just be a sucker for that best friends becoming something more type of ship. Also their powers compliment each other. Bridge has his psychic thing going on and Sky can build walls...hence Bridge should be able to interact with Sky without sensing what Sky is feeling and therefore doesn't need to be overwhealmed by Sky. At the same time Sky has a tendency to internalize things and Bridge would be able to read him, as long as Sky isn't hiding behind those walls.

Bridge is also more laid back than Sky and could get him to relax a bit.

See, this is one that I never quite got. Primarily because I think I'm totally biased by my love of Jack/Sky, but that's an entirely different topic. You make a good point about their powers that I hadn't thought of. And now I want fic about it. You are also absolutely right that Sky needs somebody more intuitive and with a higher EQ, so he doesn't have to try and be outright emotive.

Tommy and Kimberly

Yes the old go to couple. I just loved that we were able to watch their relationship grow over the years. Season 1 they were cute and flirty and by Season 3 they felt like such a strong unit. The chemistry they shared was adorable and eventhough they were so different they somehow felt right for each other. I loved that we saw the goofy moments but also the emotional ones and they were done well. Well except for the letter but thats a WHOLE different discussion :)

MMPR - Tommy/Kim (Kisses)

+1!! I loved that there was actual growth there; it was clear JDF and AJJ were very comfortable with each other and they just seemed to gel. There were so many adorable moments between the two of them <3

I think the main thing was, in a way, to throw Kimberly under the bus to make Katherine come off so much better for Tommy. To almost vilify Kimberly. That was the main thing that annoyed me. It seemed harsh on the show part and a slap in the face to the Tommy/Kimberly fans.

I agree with this completely - both Kim and Tommy deserved better closure on the relationship. Because seriously, letter? Who does that? Kim is a sweetheart, she would at least have the decency to call him! I get the offscreen reasons why it was done, but still, damn.

Ah, yes. The old standby. <3

I have nothing against this ship as it exists in canon. The two of them are so sweet together. But the post-series shipping of them that goes on kind of rubs me the wrong way. I just see them getting back together and getting married or whatever as pretty unrealistic.

You! You beat me to posting on one of my favorite pairings! I'll forgive you, though, because I agree entirely with all of this.
