T5W: Nostalgic Ships

Happy hump day friends, how are we all doing? It’s getting to that romantic time of year again where we think about the inspirational relationships and favourite pairings, and I am all in for the looking back!

Violet Baudelaire and Quigley Quagmire from A Series of Unfortunate Events

When Quigley popped up in the later books, their low level barely there flirting was every type of adorable. I really wanted them to work out for the best. They both went through horrendous tragedy and deserved happiness and security and they just fitted together so so so well!

Harry Potter and Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter Series

I know that this is not the most popular ship when it comes to Potter, but let’s be real it is the best. Luna was odd, there is no way of putting it any other way, but she could sympathise with some of the problems Harry went through and even though she occasionally made him uncomfortable, she was a huge crutch and support – especially in The Order of the Phoenix. He also supports and includes her in all they do, nurtures her good points, stands up for her against others, and accepts her exactly as she is quirks and all. They fitted together so well, they complimented and supported each other for what they were, and they would have made a perfect couple.

Molly and Arthur Weasley from Harry Potter Series

Do I ship these guys? Absolutely! I have always shipped them and I always will ship them because they are the fictional parents, family, couple, and pairing that is beyond comparison. They are the fictional parents I would always like, and are the parents I would love to become.  I really think that they should be on everyone’s list if I am being honest!

Aragorn and Arwen from The Lord of the Rings

I think everyone loves a doomed love story, where the characters want to be together and are putting the problems and issues of everyone else ahead of their own happiness. They are undyingly loyal to one another, and despite being of different people, they have overcome familial loyalties, mortality, and world destruction and domination in an effort to make their relationship work. If that’s not goals and worth shipping, then what is?

Sophie and The BFG from The BFG

Don’t shout at me, I wasn’t shipping this hard in terms of a romantic relationship! This was my absolute favourite relationship/friendship as a child and is a large part of why I love this book and Roald Dahl so much. It doesn’t matter that they’re totally different in everyway, they are both lovely and looking for the best in everything and everyone and because of that they have a pretty awesome and inspirational friendship.

What pairings did you ship in your childhood? Do you ship them now?

What do you think of these ships? Do you agree with them?
