But my favorite couple in the world, detectives Shawn Spencer and Juliet O'Hara, have only an almost kiss (nicknamed the 'Close Talking' bit, from "Bounty Hunters") and a really intense kiss on the cheek (from "An Evening With Mr. Yang") to their name. These are the only examples, aside from the Almost Hand-Holding bit from "Talk Derby To Me", of physical manifestations of their being a ship. Granted, many other ships thrive on almost nothing but fan adoration, but I just want to make a case for why I really love this pairing (and this is something I spend endless hours talking to Mia, Jash, RP and others about).( TL;DR!Collapse )
I love my ship because they can make three seasons worth of moments exciting without even a single liplock (with each other, anyway). I love my ship because they complement each other so well. I love my ship because they have such a great foundation of friendship between them. I love my ship because they get each other, and they look out for each other. I love my ship because neither are perfect or flawless, and they both recognize that in each other. I love my ship because they have the right amount of humor and the right amount of angst in their (potential) relationship. And I love my ship because they're so realistic and funny and sweet and SUBTLE. OMJ. You really have to watch the show to get why this is such an amazing couple because every episode contributes to the growth of their relationship. ♥ I can't wait for more, when it comes to them. And this is why they're my OTP of all time. YAY SHULES. <3
I spent the evening Youtubing moments of my other favorite ships in the world, like Harry/Hermione, Pacey/Joey, Clark/Lana and all the other really cute couplings, and I realized that my OTP, Shawn and Juliet, are sorely lacking in really outright 'OMG-MELT' moments. Pacey and Joey have a bajillion, and so do Clark and Lana, and Spike and Buffy, and Angel and Cordelia, and dozens of other couples who have graced our televisions and our lives.
