I was tagged by the ever-awesome [ profile] raktajinos! Thank you for thinking of me, hon! :D ♥♥♥

The rules:

Choose 5 otp’s without looking at the questions that will follow, then tag five people.

1. Barry Allen/Caitlin Snow (The Flash)
2. Twelve/Clara (Doctor Who)
3. Oliver Queen/Felicity Smoak (Arrow)
4. Ten/Donna Noble (Doctor Who)
5. Katrina Crane/Abraham Van Brunt (Sleepy Hollow)

I'm slightly cheating as that I did this one at Tumblr so decided to just repost my answers. *blush* But hopefully there are still those not on Tumblr or who just didn't see it there, so it won't be a total waste of your time. *fingers crossed* ;)

Anyway, not tagging but if you'd like to do this one, please consider this an Official Aislynn Tag ™ *boops your nose* and be sure to let me know that you did it! :D ♥♥♥

1. Do you remember the episode/scene/chapter that you first started shipping 5?

I was SO not here for Abraham kidnapping Katrina at the end of the first season and then was surprisingly intrigued by their scenes in 2x01, so that was the first little spark. And then in 2x05, when I realized he was going after her to try to save her, not because he was trying to force her to come back with him, that made that little spark turn into a tiny flame. But then in 2x07, when he fought to try and save her, struggling through sunlight while practically on fire but never ceasing while she was screaming his name… Oh yeah, the tiny flame roared to life like a wildfire and the Katless ship sailed for me big time! \o/ ;)

2. Have you ever read fanfiction about 2?

You know, I actually have only read one or two fics for Twelve/Clara but I’ve devoured as many vids for them as I can! ;) I’m definitely on the lookout for some fics, though, now as well. ;)

3. Has a picture of 4 ever been your screen saver/profile picture/tumblr id?

Ohhhh, yeahhhh! ;) I’ve had a ton of Ten/Donna screen savers over the years, some that I’ve made, some that I’ve picked up from the very talented artists out there! :D

4. If 3 were to suddenly break up today, what would your reaction be?

Well, considering that Oliver and Felicity pretty much got together then broke right back up in the first ep of season 3, :( I don’t have to guess what my reaction would be: *EPIC SAD FACE* I was expecting it but it didn’t make it any easier to see! Their chemistry is SO strong, though, and they’re just SO right for each other, I’m really hoping that we’ll see some much happier times ahead for them! *keeps fingers crossed* ;)

5. Why is 1 so important?

Barry/Caitlin is important to me at least because they developed out of the chemistry of the actors, much like how I fell for Oliver/Felicity. I fully expect Barry/Iris and Caitlin/Ronnie to be endgame and I do ship them both to a degree (I love Iris with Eddie right now, though, and I want more of them before their inevitable breakup happens :( Caitlin and Ronnie have such angst and tragedy to them that that definitely does appeal to my Inner Shipper as well ;) ). In the meanwhile, though, I would love to have seen Barry and Caitlin get a chance at unexpected romance. I really don’t think the show is going to go that way, though, not with Ronnie’s return already in motion. But hey, never say never! And even if they never become canon, I’ll certainly still continue to enjoy shipping it! ;)

6. Is 4 a funny ship or a serious ship?

Ten/Donna is totally both! ;) There was a great deal of angst with them, in particular with what happened to Donna at the end (which I’m still pretty much in denial of *sticks fingers in ears and goes la la la very loudly*) but they had SO MUCH FUN together before that! I love them so much and their goofy sense of adventure mixed with the moments of seriousness has made them an epic couple of all times for me!

7. Out of all your ships listed, which ship has the most chemistry?

Oh, they all have such chemistry together, I could never pick one with the most! *looks shocked that this meme would even ASK such a thing* :P ;)

8. Of all the ships, which ship has the strongest bond?

Argh, yet again, I don’t think I could pick. I could see either of ANY of the couples going to the ends of the Earth and far beyond to save the other! *wimps out and declares a five-way tie* :P ;)

9. How many times have you read/watched 2’s fandom?

More than I can count, lol! ;) Besides just watching the eps, I’ve been on a big Twelve/Clara kick for the past few weeks and I think I’ve watched every vid on YT for them! ;)

10. Which ship lasted the longest?

Just in sheer amount of time, that would have to be Katrina/Abraham, considering that their tumultuous relationship began two and a half centuries before present day! ;)

11. How many times, if ever, has 5 broken up?

Katrina and Abraham broke up once, quite disastrously, when she spurned him for Ichabod, whom she then married. Abraham, betrayed, full of anger and jealousy, then became the Horseman of Death over that. So yeah, lots of BAD, CATASTROPHIC, LITERALLY END OF THE WORLD STUFF happened with that break up! ;)

12. If the world was suddenly to thrust into a zombie apocalypse, which ship would make it out alive, 1 or 3?

Hee, a Flarrow team-up has already pretty much proven that that would result in Barry, Caitlin, Oliver AND Felicity all making it out alive! ;)

13. Did 4 ever have to hide their relationship for any reason?

I’d say that Ten and Donna spent most of their time hiding their relationship from THEMSELVES, lol! ;) They did soooo much “Oh, we’re not together! No, we’re not married!” that it makes me feel like the lady and the timelord doth protest WAY too much! ;)

14. Is 5 still together?

Katrina is still married to Ichabod but as Abraham recently pointed out to his former best friend, Katrina continues to come back to HIM, over and over again. I think if Abraham gets a redemption arc, it will be almost 100% because Katrina does love him, at least in some way, and believes that the mortal man she once knew is still alive somewhere within the Horseman of Death. I think it’s definitely canon by this point that she wants to save him. And I think there are many ways that they could end up together in canon, especially given how much of a fan UNfavorite Katrina is to so many people. :( If they do plan on writing her out, I could see them doing it in such a way that would put her with Abraham.

15. is 1 canon?

Sadly, not even a little bit. But I’ll continue to hope for some Barry/Caitlin goodness right up until the point where it becomes irrefutably impossible! (And even then I’ll continue waving my AU shipper flag, lol! ;) )

16. If all five ships were put in a couple’s hunger games, which couple would win?

Hm, Barry and Caitlin would definitely not want to kill any of the other couples, so they’d try to find a way to use his super-speed and her smarts to get them all out of there. Oliver and Felicity would definitely team-up with Barry and Caitlin to figure a way out. (Personally, I think Oliver wouldn’t want to kill anybody else but if he felt legitimately that Felicity’s life was in danger… then he’d do it.)

Twelve and Ten would probably not get along very well until Clara and Donna smacked some sense into their respective Doctors (I’d pay good money to see Donna smack Twelve, though, I’ve gotta say. Their snark would be GLORIOUS, lol! ;) ) and they also would do their best to escape.

Abraham, however, would kill ‘em all. ‘Cause, you know, Horseman of Death and all that? It’s kinda his thing. :P ;) Especially if you throw in that he would be defending the love of his life (and death ;) )? Oh yeahhhh, he’d be doing his best to cut a swath of destruction through the rest of the gang, no doubt! O_O

So if it really came down to killing, then Team Katless would pretty much come out “a head.” Ba-dum-tsss! *rim-shot* *pun intended* :P ;)

17. Has anyone ever tried to sabotage 5’s ship?

Um, yeah. *points at Ichabod who is currently married to Katrina* Abraham’s former bestie is pretty much a Katless buzzkill, I’d say, lol! ;)

18. Which ship(s) would you defend to death and beyond?

All of them! *looks fierce, kinda like a fluffy kitten trying to hiss and arch her back* :P ;)

19. Have you spent hours a day going through 3’s tumblr page?

Collectively, I’d say that I’ve spent DAYS if not weeks, going through the Olicity tag by now, lol! ;)


What an evil question! *does fluffy kitten hiss again* ;) Ahem. If I haaaaad to pick one to break up, it would probably have to be Barry/Caitlin, not because I don’t love them, but because I feel they’re really the least likely of the still-on-the-air ships to ever be made canon. :( *wipes away a Snowbarry tear* :( ;)

*hugs you all* :D

Cute answers. I'm so glad to hear you are a 12/Clara shipper. I always like to find more of those.

As for Katrina ... It's so sad the SH fandom hates her so much. I think she's badass on her own... ship or no ship. <3

Aw, thank you, hon! :D I totally wasn't going to ship 12/Clara and then they steamrolled right over me with their insane chemistry and the more I was determined NOT to ship them, the deeper I fell in love with them, lol! ;)

Oy, poor Katrina/Katia Winter. Right now she's taking the brunt of so much of the fandom's hate, it's sad! :( Maybe this season hasn't been perfect but I've enjoyed it a lot and I hope they'll get another season. But man, if they don't, they're going to put it pretty much all at her feet and that's so unfair! :(

*hugs* ♥

I wouldn't (yet) say I was a 12/Clara shipper but I did read a fic by them a bit back just cause it popped up in my alerts by one of the authors I will always read cuz of awesome :) so I squinted at it and tried to figure out if they meant an actual romantic pairing (then I was like, it's the internet douevenneedtoask)
So i read it out of curiosity and *headtilted* a bit and yeah, you know what, I can totally see it now!!

LOL at your fluffy kitten hiss!

*is fluffy kitten in RL pretty much* Lol, thanks, hon! :D

Ooo, good fanfic has definitely been responsible for opening my eyes to a potential ship before!

I was totally, 100% ready and prepared to not ship it in the slightest. I never really got into Eleven/Clara, probably because I was hung up on Eleven/River and I didn't want to "break them up" in that way. I don't have a problem with multi-shipping the Doctor but I tend to be pretty faithful when it comes to the incarnations. So Nine/Rose, Ten/Donna, Eleven/River and now Twelve/Clara are kinda where it's at for me, though I've been known to dabble with shuffling them around in a non serious way (like, I'd LOVE to see Donna with Nine, Eleven and Twelve, just 'cause, lol! ;) But Ten will always be who I want her to be with at the end of the day, you know? ;) )

Anyway, I think one thing that did kinda start hooking me into Twelve/Clara was that they have a bit of a Ten/Donna vibe to me in that she's completely not afraid to tell him off whenever she feels he needs it. That really started to work for me in conjunction with his increasing "I'm totally not interested in you, Clara. Can you see me over here being totally not interested in you? Clara? Can you? Clara??? Claaaaaaraaaa???" And then throw in some awesome vids and... I packed my bags and crawled on board, lol! ;)

[/long story... uh... long] Hee! ;)

*hugs* ♥

definitely not wasted time love, because if there's one thing I learned very quickly about tumblr, it's how much stuff I never EVER see because I just wasn't online that day *sigh*

Oh, that's SO true! I used to be able to backup every day on Tumblr and see what was posted since I was there the last time but those days are looooooong gone. :S Even checking tags isn't a reliable way to not miss something. :S

Anyway, I'm glad you got to read this now! ;) *hugs* ♥

yay! I'm ever-awesome!

lol we're completely opposite on the Flarrowverse ships. hahaha. Granted, I ship everything so it's not hard to push me over the edge to any ship :P. I ship Barry/Felicity pretty hardcore. But the relationship I'm most invested in is that of Barry & Joe. Like they give me all sorts of warm fuzzies and make me happy. They're so damn cute like OMIGOD. And that's odd for me, to be so invested in a platonic male-male relationship. I'm pretty good with Barry/Iris too - she has really good taste in men; I like that she's attracted to men who value and respect her.

Also, just like Laurel & Thea / the world.

Now that I'm thinking about it, I just care about every person in this universe, the shipping is a secondary thing for me. It's my new Stargate SG1! *REVELATION MOMENT*. I just want all these people to be happy - I friggen care for them all. Even Wells - and we don't even know if he's good or not yet!

I'm also super behind on Sleepy Hollow. :/

Yes, you're definitely in the ever-awesome category in my book! *nodnods* :D

Heh, I was trying not to take too many ships from any one fandom or I would've had Barry/Felicity on there as well because I ship them liek woah! Before Barry's first Arrow ep aired, I was all, "Pfft, I can't believe they're going to try to sell me on Felicity with anybody other than Oliver!" and then when we actually saw him, I was all, "WHO IS THIS CUTIE PIE??? Felicity must have him!" ;) As much as I do love my Olicity, if Barry had just become a regular on Arrow instead of getting his own spin-off, I would DEFINITELY ship Barricity the hardest. The only thing that bumps it down is that it's not really possible to ever become canon because of the separate shows issue. Beyond that, though? Oh man, they would be SO GOOD TOGETHER! *draws sparkly pink hearts around them* ;)

Ahem. ;) I really love Barry and Joe's relationship, too! I'm so glad they've taken the time to invest in that and not just sort of expect us to "know" they're family and they love each other, but they really do show it, too. :D

I would probably ship Barry/Iris a little harder but I really love her with Eddie and for the longest time she just kept giving me the strongest "I love you, Barry, but I'm not IN love with you" vibes that I was worried they were going to make it feel uncomfortable if Barry sort of pushed the issue. But the way they've dealt with it has been really good, IMO, especially now that she knows he's in love with her. He didn't push for more, he made it clear that he respects her decision to be with Eddie and now they're continuing on with their friendship with only a few little natural bumps along the way.

[/has lots of Flarrow feels, lol]

Anyway, I agree, I love everybody in this bar ;) 'verse and I want them all to be happy! :D

Ohhhh, Sleepy Hollow... S2 has suffered from a serious lack of writer direction, IMO. They've tried to implement things without actually bothering to set them up first, they've done way too much telling and not showing on critical things and now that we're in the final bunch of eps, Fox has stepped in and asked for a definite shift in direction, so now the things they HAD set up are just having to be discarded or quickly resolved. :S It's been kind of a mess and yet... I've really, really loved some parts of it so much, even more than s1 in many instances! *confuzzled fangirl face* ;)

Anyway, I hope that however s2 ends up, that they'll get renewed and get the chance to have a strong s3 instead of end on this wobbly note, you know? ♥♥♥
