Meme a day 2008-Day 221-Another Ship Meme

Ganked from failegaidin

Six ships you like:
01. House/Wilson-House MD
02. Wilson/Chase-House MD
03. Jack/Owen-Torchwood
04. Jack/Doctor-Dr Who/Torchwood
05. Sam/Chris-Life On Mars
06. Doctor/Master-Dr. Who

Three ships you used to like, but don't anymore:
07. Grissom/Sara-CSI
08. Danny/Lindsay-CSI-NY
09. Cameron/Chase-House MD

Three ships in your various fandoms that you can't stand:
10. Jack/Ianto-Torchwood
11. Wilson/Cuddy-House MD
12. Simon/Kaylee-Firefly

Two ships you are curious about but haven't actually started shipping:
13. Chase/Cuddy-House MD
14. Jack/Tosh-Torchwood

1.) Why do you dislike #11 so much?
The hideous awkwardness of the date scene in Forever, was nearly as horrible as the Cam/House date from Love Hurts, followed by the art gallery nightmare. But what has really killed any possibility of a real connection would be Cuddy's blatant favoritism toward House when Wilson was going through hell during the Tritter ordeal. It made Wilson seem even more masochistic than usual. I just can't see a relationship developing unless that was dealt with and I doubt it ever will be.

2.) Who is someone you know that ships #13?
No one I know specifically, but I'm sure that paperclipbitch has written something brilliant about them in her drabble collections.

3.) What would be your ideal scenario for couple #3 (even if the show isn't on the air anymore)?
Prior to Exit Wounds, any acknowledgement of the attraction that's existed between since the first encounter. (Nothing says "I want you," like a face full of chloroform.) All that resentment, UST, etc breaking into very hot hate-sex. Post-Dead Man Walking, I'd also love to see Jack admit why he brought Owen back and how much he does care about him. In an AU, I see them stuck together in a love/hate situation, where Jack is still Jack and goes out to get laid as often as possible, still pining for the Doctor while dealing with Zombie!Owen and the ramifications of what he's done. The one thing that is absolutely crucial in any scenario is for Ianto's absolute meaninglessness to Jack as more than a barely utilitarian fuck-toy to be made vivid and palpable.

4.) Which is your favorite episode for #1? Try to pick just one, if you can.
All In. (Was there ever a doubt?)

5.) How long have you been following couple #6?
Since the first time I saw the Utopia Arc and specifically since the first time I saw the phone-sex scene in The Sound of Drums.

6.) What's the story with #8? What made you stop liking them/caring?
Because Danny acted like an ass-hat pretty much through the whole season. This would be a classic example of why "They Did It" pretty much equals SHARK JUMP, for a ship, if not necessarily a show. Just when Lindsay became a strong, interesting character, Danny no longer deserves her.

7.) Which ship do you prefer - #2 or #4?
(2-Wilson/Chase 4-Jack/Doctor)
Wilson/Chase is a guilty pleasure, Jack/Doctor is an OTP, at least as far as Jack is concerned.
I want Jack to be what we were originally sold: Omnisexual and polyamorous, but I know that the only man/woman/child/alien, he really, truly loves above and beyond any temporary dalliance or even a possible life-commitment (for them) is the Doctor.

8.) You have the power to make one ship non existent. Choose from #10 or #12.
(Jack/Ianto or Simon/Kaylee)
Simon/Kaylee is a mere annoyance of the overly cute. Jack/Ianto is a destruction force, dragging down and nuetering once of the greatest characters ever introduced to television. Either keep things at the ambiguous level of "looks good in a suit" or kill him in Cyberwoman and let Jack mourn for two seconds and then get on with "shagging anything if it's gorgeous enough." The show would be all the better for it, I promise.

9.) What interests you about #14?
Well, if anyone deserves a round with Captain Jack, it's Tosh. John/Naoko have a lovely, quiet chemistry together. There was something about the way he flirted with her in "Fragments" combined with the protectiveness in CJH that made me want them to get together very badly. (Please don't give me the whole, "Oh he thinks of her as a daughter" routine either.) I think he'd be sweet and gentle with her, and then maybe, just maybe Owen would get a hint of what he's been missing.

10.) When did you stop liking #7?
When it actually became canon. Before that I could deal with the flirting and her crush, but when the reveal happened, I was like Run, Grissom, Run. That woman is nothing but her issues and she will destroy you.

11.) Did your waning interest in #9 kill your interest in the show?
No, but if the writing doesn't improve this season, preferably starting with a Moldavian Massacre that just happens to take out the new team, there will be hell to pay.

12.) What's a song that reminds you of #5?
Because I used it for a Sam/Chris wank!fic and I think there would an element of salvation in a relationship between them.

13.) Which of these ships do you love the most?
#1 (House/Wilson) and #2 (Wilson/Chase)
House/Wilson. OTP. The thing that brought me back to fandom and writing fanfic. Hugh Laurie and RSL are magic on-screen together. I just hope they start getting real scripts again instead of fanservice bullshit.

14.) Which do you dislike the most?
Jack/Ianto-See my answer to #8 and then add in the behaviour of some of the fans and you've got a hate-on of rock-hard dimensions.

15.) If you could have any of these pairings double date, who would it be? (even better if they're from different shows)
Jack/Owen and House/Wilson--Owen/House-Snarkfest. Wilson/Jack-Sluts ahoy, bringing out House's possesive streak and more sarcasm from Owen. The whole thing either ends in a fist fight or an orgy.

16.) Have #2 kissed yet? Elaborate if you'd like.
One has read so much paperclipbitch Wilson/Chase fic, that one highly suspects and wishes. Given their individual issues and various abuses at the hands of one Dr. House, it's almost impossible that it hasn't happened. (How about a little hurt/comfort after Finding Judas?)

17.) Did #4 have a happy ending? If the show hasn't ended yet, do you think a happy ending is likely?
Not yet. Someday though. The Doctor will somehow get over his issues and take Jack away as his companion.

18.) What would make you start shipping #13?
A real scene between them in canon or some awesomely hot and well-written fic.

19.) If only one could happen, which would you prefer - #2 or #6?
(Wilson/Chase or Doctor/Master)
Tricky. Well in some ways, Doctor/Master already has at least in terms of the phone scene, and Simm/Tennant played all their scenes together, including the death scene, far beyond the level of subtext.

My eeeeevil side would kind of like Wilson/Chase, only because the shit-storm that would explode
among the House/Wilson fans. Yeah, House/Wilson is my ship, but I never ever want it to be canon.

Hmmmmmmm-Lets go with Doctor/Master---assuming Tennant/Simm, otherwise Wilson/Chase.

20.)You have the power to decide the fate of #10. What happens to them?
See #8. And if I can't have that, or my Jack/Owen, then I either want canon J/I/G with Gwen as a
completely equal partner or the J/Iers worst night-mare, full-blown J/G complete with kissing, graphic sex (Adrift level or stronger), and ILU on Jack's part. (The wank would be epic.)
