Ships I DO Ship #2 A NEW OTP!

Ahhh! Finally a new ship post. So I have plans for these features which I've been neglecting for months and basically those plans are that it's going to start again in January and I'm going to do my best to post one a month. I've mentioned a few times that I'd like guest posters for this feature and I Do! I will reach out to a few of you who I think want to do it and then I'll make an actual form or something that can be filled out for if you're interested but again, that's gonna start next year.

Enough rambling! I have a SHIP to GUSH all about now!

Shipping: The act of wanting, nay needing, two characters to be together. Believing with every inch of your heart and soul that two characters belong together, whether it's that way in the book/tv show/movie or not.
Example: I ship Harry and Draco so hard, they just belong together!

OTPs: One True Pairing or a set of fictional characters that you believe no matter what belong together, whether it was ever a real option in the book or not.
Example: Katniss and Peeta are my ultimate OTP
simon and baz uvu:

23734628Simon Snow & Tyrannus Basilton "Baz" Pitch

Statues: OTP level shipping

From: Fangirl and Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Spoilers? Yes! But ONLY in the quotes, so skip them if you don't want even a little hint about how things end up.

Why I Think They Belong Together:

Okay, you can't not fall for Simion and Baz in Fangirl, if only because of how much Cath loves them. You WILL fall for them.

- They really rock that hate to love relationship. I mean they're mortal enemies! Baz once tried to feed Simon to a chimera! Simion has been trying to prove that Baz is a vampire and get him thrown out of school/possibly locked up/possibly killed forever!

- Um? Opposites attract and also not. They're so different from each other which makes them work so well but then, in Carry On, towards the end you find out they might not be so different after all.

- Dude. They'll do anything for each other. Simon stalked Baz around for a whole year to find out what he was doing! Yes, he thought Baz was plotting against him but also he wanted to make sure Baz was okay! (Probably).

- No insta love here.

16068905- They still let each other do their own things. Baz needs to track down the people who kidnapped him and held him in a coffin for two months? Sure, you do that. Get some air. Simon wants to give himself up to a pitchfork-carrying mob (not literally, I'm exaggerating and changing what really happens so as not to give the book away) sure, you do you, Simon.

- They're part of a love triangle and it's so complicated and not really a triangle that it makes you grin.

- Swoon. Swoon swoon swoon and ship ship ship.  OKAY?

At the bottom of the box were Cath’s Simon and Baz posters … Simon raising the Sword of Mages. Baz lounging on a fanged black throne. The t...:

Quotes That Prove It:

“I am going to die kissing Simon Snow. Aleister Crowley, I'm living a charmed life.”

― Rainbow Rowell, Carry On

“[Baz] Snow was a wreck at dinner.
Which I might have enjoyed if I wasn't so desperate for him to stay.
Everything on his plate seemed to confuse him, and he alternated between staring at his food miserably and vacuuming it up because he was clearly ravenous.” 

― Rainbow Rowell, Carry On

“For a moment -- not even a moment, a split second -- I imagine him saying, 'The truth is, I'm desperately attracted to you.' And then I imagine myself spitting in his face. and then I imagine licking it off his cheek and kissing him. (Because I'm disturbed. Ask Anyone.)” 

― Rainbow Rowell, Carry On

Okay! That's it. Thanks for meeting my new OTP. Feel free to tell me if you agree or disagree with me in the comments. And let's chat about your current OTP!

  1. Oh, man. Simon and Baz..I can't even with those two. They're just so damn cute together. I ship them like crazy, and I'm so, so thankful for Carry On. ;)

    1. RIGHT??? They deserve OTP level shipping because they are the best! They're adorable and just...gah, you know? Me too! Carry On is the best, I mean I'm still as excited about it today as when I found out it was coming out last year and I've already read it! =)

  2. I missed this feature!! Okay, I seriously need to read this book now! I love the hate to love relationships! I like the thrown in humor too.

  3. How fun!! I love this feature. Now I REALLY want to read Carry On - I don't know why I haven't picked it up yet!!
