Ships I Don't Ship #2!

Sooo, about a month ago I did a post called Ships I Don't Ship. I talked about how I thought Tris and Fours' relationship was toxic, how I hated Adam from Shatter Me, and how I never thought Gale was a real option for Katniss. And...well. I wasn't going to do a sequel, but someone, not naming names here(it was Shannon) pestered and begged me to do a sequel post and so here we are! =)

This is another set of 5 couples or Ships from YA books that I just do not ship, you know, the ones that make you think:

13519397Celaena and Dorian (Throne Of Glass)
I've never been a fan of this ship. I don't really like Dorian, and, I mean, I'm not big on the "falling for your captor" thing that went on in the first book, even if Dorian wasn't really an evil person or anything. I don't hate this couple, but I definitely don't ship them either.





Okay, it's like it was adorable at first, I shipped them hard. But then...not so much. I thought Isla was too controlling and overly jealous and I honestly thought Josh should just drop her. I also never felt like they liked or loved each other, it felt like it was nothing more than lust.







8755776Alec and Magnus (The Mortal Instruments) 
Don't get me wrong, I am all for Malec, it's probably the only reason I continue to read the series(I'm still on City Of Lost Souls!), but Alec is a buttface! And Magnus deserves better!








10194157Alina and Mal (Shadow and Bone)
I have only read the first(and half the second) but I do not like Mal at all! I am all for the whole "secretly in love with your best friend" thing, but a lot of the time it feels(to me) like they're only with their best friend because they think they have to. I don't feel like Mal actually cares about her that way, and I feel like Alina has changed too much to still be the same girl who was in love with Mal.



17675462Blue and Adam (The Raven Boys)
Blue and Adam never made sense! Adam is too much of a wreck and Blue, obviously, belongs with Gansey. Also team Ronan/Adam for life!!!








Okay, so this one wasn't as well thought out as the first, what can I say? I used all my best Ships I Don't Ship in the first post! But, even still...there will be a third post! Next up is: Ships I Don't Ship #3 TV Show Version!

More importantly, What Ships do you not ship? Are there any on my list we have in common!? Feel free to adamantly defend any of these that you just absolutely love!

  1. I don't ship Celaena and Dorian either, although I absolutely love Dorian. He's just not right for her. I'm pretty okay with Isla and Josh, and Alina and Mal, and I definitely ship Alec and Magnus. :) And I couldn't agree with you more when it comes to Blue and Adam. Just no, no, no. But the whole Ronan and Adam thing, THAT I do ship! :)

  2. I definitely do not ship Jul and Adam from the Shatter Me series. I was so mad by the last book, that I had to force myself to keep reading. I beg to differ on Four and Tris. I love them! LOL

  3. YES. I ship Chaol and Celaena. I love Dorian to pieces, but...no. They're not right as a couple, but they're perfect as friends. XD I also never shipped Blue and Adam. IT IS BLUE AND GANSEY. THEY NEED TO GET THIER ACT TOGETHER. Adam has some growing up to do. He's really selfish in his need to be so freaking independent. -_-

  4. TV VERSION!? YES! Okay, I have only read two of these, so I can't really comment on the others. I think I was one of the few people who did really root for Alina and Mal. Well, most of the time. There were a few times when I didn't, but I always came back to loving them. As for Alec and Magnus, I agree. He could have done SO much better. BUT, they were nowhere near as irritating and Clary and Jace, so by that virtue alone I was fine with them! Now I have to get to all these other books so I can make decisions :)

    1. =) Yes make the decisions! I have so many complicated feelings for Alec and Magnus because I love them, but Alec is such a whiny person who does not deserve Magnus!

  5. I thought I was the only one who didn't like Alec and Magnus. Actually the Bane Chronicles helped me see what Magnus sees in him a bit. OMG Yes, just yes to Mal and Alina, I hated that ship! Up until Mockingjay I didn't like Katniss and Peeta together. *dodges rotten fruit.* Nice post! :)

    1. Thank you! And since you were kind enough to comment on this post I will refrain from throwing rotten fruit at you. =)
      Yeah I really loved Magnus and Alec in the Bane Chronicles but....in the series I just feel like Alec became annoying and whiny. =)

    1. That's perfectly understandable for the longest time I didn't know what it meant either! Ship is short for Relationship, it basically means a couple that you really want to end up together, you "ship" them, meaning you love them together. I hope that helps!
