Would you believe me if I said my first was Buzz/Woody back when I was like eight? I still have some old art around in storage, somewhere... It was all innocent of course, but I'm still surprised looking back.

...And I still ship it. Only less. Innocently.

My favourite pairing of the last few years is DeanCas from Supernatural. I just can't seem quit it.

I started off with yaoi when I was middle school and I guess Prison Break (Lincoln/Michael) and Supernatural (Dean/Sam) were my first western pairings. (Keep it the family har har) I'm taste has changed big time over the years. I'm almost completely just western slash now.

What fandom does this macro refer to, anon? Mac/PC? I remember that Mac/PC was my original guilty pleasure ship. That was before I discovered Transformers porn and...other stuff about which I dare not think more than a fucking second. So now I'm not especially guilty about my Mac/PC shipping; it's fucking adorable and they're way more human than some couples I've shipped since.

The first thing I ever really 'shipped was House/Wilson, back when House MD was first starting.

I guess my guilty pleasure is RPS (I know that doesn't sit right with a lot of slashers), especially hockey players. OMG hockey porn. They make it so, so easy.

I'm a latecomer because traditional seme-uke yaoi and the annoyingness of yaoi fangirls in general made me hate all M/M shipping until I started college and discovered bara and fangirls who acted with some semblance of maturity, so Medic/Heavy was my first slash OTP.

showing my age: my first real ship was Mulder/Krycek, which is old enough to not really have much fan art since internet fandom was a shiny new thing way back then.

I think I started when a bunch of my friends pushed Hiei/Kurama and Bakura/Yami Bakura on me in middle school. I kept with it even though I was never into the uber-kawaii bishonen (I stopped reading Gravitation after Shuichi had her sex change).

When I got into Watchmen, it was awesome. PEOPLE WITH FLAWS, BEING SEXY AND KEEPIN IT REAL. FUCK YEAH.
Fandoms left by the wayside: Lackadaisy and Neverwhere needs a hell of a lot more fic. There are a few of Richard Mayhew and de Carabas having lonely adventures in the Underground, but I need some SEX. And CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT.

Hmm, first Western Ship...I would have to say Crowley/Aziraphale from Good Omens. I think. But come one, that's basically canon.

I'm currently way into boostle because it's hilarious and adorable. (Also almost basically canon?!??)

I was twelve when I unintentionally shipped Sam and Frodo. I would reread the tower rescue scene in ROTK (in the book Frodo's naked for that bit) over and over without being able to articulate why I enjoyed it so much/ what's that funny feeling in my pants/ etc.

Oh, I remember that. How I remember it.
>> No. 76308
I ship it because Harry's responsible/paternal nature works so well with Jame's emotionally broken self. I just feel it would work well as a symbiotic relationship, where James needs someone to rely on and Harry needs someone to tend to.

Also I love shenanigans with silly!James and serious!Harry as well.

Silent hill was definitely my first love. I was so into it in high school, its a little scary. I ended up with so many fics and arts, but this person's art used to take my breath away. I still love Pyramid head and james. The fandom used to be really awesome too, especially those in character livejournals. Like harryndahlia

I think I know the exact fic youre talking about, lol and it made me ship harry / james too. Could it possibly be Lost Days?
>> No. 76325

Hell yeah. It was Lost Days and A Sound In Time, by the same author.

Oh Silent Hill, why did your later iterations become so... Bleh? (Well, no. It's a lie. I know why they weren't good. They focused too much on callbacks to the earlier games, wedging in cult stuff where it didn't belong and trying to being in more combat. Shattered Memories was a step in the right direction but it didn't really gel; the puzzle sections were completely safe to wander around in, and the chase sections went from tense to "welp" after you'd failed a few times and had to run the same gauntlet over and over. The psych profile was an interesting gimmick but it didn't go deep enough to be compelling. My thoughts on video games, let me show you them.)

tl;dr as far as I'm concerned each SH game should be self-contained, with the town acting as a sort of purgatory reflecting the game's protagonist. The cult plot doesn't really need to be explored further.

I agree with you for the most part but I have to say I really enjoyed Homecoming. The story kept you guessing, the monsters (especially bosses) were freaky as hell, and it was pretty immersive (choosing whether to kill your dad... that was heavy)

I have to say... Star Trek the next generation was one of my favorite early fandoms. It came out when I was a few years old, lol but I still like it a lot. Data/Anyone was my pairing :> but especially him and Geordie, though it was hard to find. Q also made for excellent porn :P

Kinks? I guess mine would be size and sometimes age. I usually just go with whatever fandom gives me. XD
>> No. 76354
Not the anon you were replying to, but every time Homecoming is brought up I feel like I need to reiterate how badly Pyramid Head did not need to be in that fucking game. He was James' personal demon, his own manifestation his guilt, not just another construct built by the town. The games slowly went from 'A character's own personal hell built off of their emotional baggage and psychoses' to just another shitty zombie game with no psychological depth. They tried to dredge up some character development for Alex, but it was just a poor man's rehash of James.

But I have to admit that some of the monster designs were pretty engaging, especially Scarlet's.

I know just what you mean. Thanks to Homecoming's slavish devotion to SH2's, well, everything, I found the whole story pretty obvious. Guy comes to Silent Hill looking for a loved one. Turns out he killed the loved one and he's feeling guilty so he wants the town to punish him! What a tweest! I did like the movie-inspired aesthetic, though.

Regarding first slash ships, I remember being quite interested in "Ping" and Shang's friendship in Mulan. The romantic tension combined with the fact that Shang thought Mulan was a dude made me wonder what the film would have been like if she really were a man - cue funny feelings.

I am with you 100%. I was in fourth grade and in love with Sam/Frodo without having any idea what 'gay' was. I just knew they were like two parts to a whole. It always made me embarrassed and excited to read about them supporting each other. Didn't figure out why until muuuuch later.

My history with slash pairings is a little weird, to be honest.

I didn't know what homosexuality, or sexuality was period was until maybe late into middle school. I was really sheltered as a kid.

I looked at slash, but I didn't find most yaoi aesthetically pleasing, and looking back at it, it gave me a really fucked up idea of what sex was like.

The first slash pairing to hit a nerve with me was Batman/Superman or Batman/Joker. I'm still really picky on who I ship, though. I can't do any kind of incest, most hatesex, or underaged characters. Toki/Skwisgaar was also a huge one for me too, but I lost interest in it after Adult Swim picked up on the shipping and curbstomped any and all subtext in Season 3.

Medic/Heavy is my current favorite, with Tintin/Haddock as a close favorite. Canon subtext is my favorite thing ever, as are guys who are middle-aged or "bara".

Oh my God, me too. I remember the Lost Temple of Ishida, a fanpage about Matt, had a whole section devoted to it. I was VERY into bishonen, so when Yu-Gi-Oh! came along with a horde of bishonen with jewelry and leather, I basically exploded, shipping things without rhyme or reason.


Anyway, My first Western ship would probably be Remus/Sirius, vaguely, but my first devoted one was Sylar and Mohinder from Heroes. That was a great ship—a fun community, great character dynamics, and encouragement from the cast. A shame about the show.

The release of the latest Star Trek movie taught me about the fannish history of slash, which was great, and I've been trying to get through the shows on and off since then, which has resulted in a budding thing for Spock/McCoy.

My current favorites are, given my recent foray into mainstream comics, Erik/Charles (THEY COULD HAVE HAD IT ALL—) and, less almost canon, Tony/Loki for thematic reasons.

None of my guilty pleasure ships are M/M; they're F/M, for some reason…
>> No. 85113
>Romans. All of them.

YES. YEEEEEES. Ever since watching I, Claudius as a child. Derek Jacobi, why so wonderful? (Only when I was an adult rewatching it later did I realize how inappropriate that show actually is for children. NC-17 rating, hoshit, really?)

And then reading both Shakespeare's Coriolanus and Plutarch's Coriolanus in high school. Coriolanus is the ur-self destructive magnificent bastard. Also, my proto-goggles locked in on Brutus/Caesar long before I knew what slash was.

Anyone else here watch the new Canadian TV version of Ben Hur and get very, very disappointed when they made Messalla ostentatiously straight? Not to mention taking out the scene where Ben Hur physically restrains the Roman general from killing himself when their ship goes down under them. It's probably not a completely healthy thing to kink for attempted suicide over matters of pride and honor, but. Uh.

Also, let's hear it for dat scene between Laurence Olivier and Tony Curtis in Spartacus. Laurence Olivier never stopped being delicious at any age, but Laurence Olivier playing an arrogant bisexual Roman senator? MY BODY WAS NOT READY.

Ah, someone else shipped Hiei/Kurama first! My sexuality is a strange, strange thing, so I basically had no idea I was a slash fan until about seventh grade, when on a long bus ride I suddenly realized, "Oh, they actually are in love." No looking back after that.
First Western pairing was probably Vanyel Ashkevron/Tylendel from the Heralds of Valdemar books by Mercedes Lackey. I actually recommend those books for potential slashers; the main character comes to the realization that he's gay slowly, so the reader accepts it along with him, and there's not so much explicit stuff as to scar the kiddies for life. Plus, awesome fantasy story.
All time favorites... holy crap, way too many. Standard stuff like Crowley/Aziraphale, Kaworu/Shinji, Hanna/Zombie, etc. are usually my ships of choice. Right now I'm happily immersed in my brand-new fangirliness of Supernatural (watched the entire series for the first time in the past six months) and am totally sold on Dean/Cas, with a guilty pleasure of Sam/Cas and Sam/Cas/Dean.

I was young and innocent and had just discovered the internet. Before, I dunno I was playing outside I guess, or some shit.
I was looking around at Harry Potter stuff, somehow stumbled upon slash fics of harry and draco. I was so confused, but so intrigued.
Then animu like yu-gi-oh, gundam wing etc. I'd watch the shows and they'd make me feel funny, but I couldn't place what it was. Now I look back at my poor innocent naive self...
Then ZADR... feeling nostalgia and mild face palming
Was animu for a really really long time and still kind of am (I don't watch much, so it's hard to slash. Although I am a Hetalia-fag /shame), although now I'm mostly about comic slash and video game slash (a lot, alot of dragon age).

First ship: Remus/Sirius. Classic.

Favourite ship: Rorschach/Nite Owl II. Repession is my kink so Rorschach is a never ending minefield of sexy to me. There's no doubt in my mind that cologne-thief Rorschach has canonical gay for Daniel. Plus, like Rorschach I'm a survivor of child abuse, so the element of h/c in that fandom is sort of theraputic and just generally profound.

Runners-up: Kirk/Spock (both incarnations), Sherlock Holmes/John Watson (any incarnations except the Guy Ritchie films because RDJ is gorgeous but he looks nothing like Holmes, I'm sorry)

First ship (before I even knew what shipping was) Tintin/Haddock, TV series cartoon. I thought they were canon together because of how they behaved towards one another.

Even over a decade later, I still ship Jet/Spike. I ship Stokes/Hodges (CSI), because reasons. House/Wilson, because as far as I'm concerned, it's canon. Shawn/Lassie from Psych, because there is nothing more fun than watching two people trying to take the piss out of each other, yet be so concerned about each other when shit hits the fan.

Brock/Doc, Shoreleave/Alchemist and Dr. Orpheus/Gary (21) from The Venture Bros., because even though one of those is canon (and fucking adorable), I think Doc/Brock are too married to each other to really be with anybody else, and the finale of season 4 made me want Dr.O/Gary like burning. Also, Metalocalypse's Pickles/Nathan; I can't help myself.

I've been watching The Walking Dead, so I am shipping Daryl/Glenn, Daryl/Rick and Glenn/T-Dog. Also been watching Primeval, and I first shipped Nick/Connor and then currently Connor/Becker.

BBC Sherlock/John is, however, my favorite ship at the moment, though with so much time between seasons, it does give me a lot of time to ship other things.

And I didn't touch anything that has to do with books, because if I did, this post might never end. I read a lot, and I ship way more things in the literary world than the tv/movies/whatever happens to catch my fancy on Netflix.

First was definitely Harry/Draco. 12 year old me felt weird about slash before that, but after I saw harry/draco something clicked and the slash goggles have never left my face ever since
(I'm also guilty of zadr.)

Fuck everything, I still ship ZADR, and am only mildly embarrassed by that fact. It's just unfortunate that 99.9% of the fanart and fanfic for it is complete shit.

first ship: I am pretty positive it was aerith/cloud. yeah. First GAY ship? fucking sasunaru. I was like 12, back when CN just started airing Naruto and I hadn't started middle school yet. But middle school was when I opened the gates of hell with my best friend and we shipped everyone. KakaSasu being a big one. But western shit? Danny/Vlad. Pic related.

Present ship: God, fucking...Everything. Faves, though? Dipper/Robbie, Pitch/Sandy, mike/chuck, dean/cas (4ever), felix/calhoun, norman/dipper.

Shame ship: oh..fuck. Um, wow I gotta say my most shameful ship is Julie Kane/Abraham Kane I am so sorry. Yeah, I uh, don't care much about gender/age/relation, it's like....not a thing for me with ships. But another shame ship is Norman/Alvin for some goddamn reason. also king candybug/ralph??? wow

Oh God, I have a lot

>First homoship
Probably Spongebob and Patrick. The episode they had that clam child really confused me.

>Second homoship
Probably DD and Eddy from EEnE. Dat kiss.

I don't remember anything else, as far as early ships go, so here are ships in my life that I am still fond of:

>Kakuzu and Hidan
animu whatever. It's funny, I hate Naruto, but damn, do I shamelessly love this pairing.

>Zim and Dib
There's always a stigma that comes with this, but I guess I sort of feel attached to it, because I do like the whole rivalry dynamic where they really can't see just how lucky they are to have found each other.

>Brock and Rusty Venture
It's all about that size difference. Also, when Brock is first assigned as Doc's bodyguard, he's all cold and silent. He came a long way with Rusty. Blah, my sentimentalism over fictional characters. I just like how their friendship blossomed and like to imagine they sometimes have sex.

>Squilliam and Squidward
I feel shame and regret. I'm twenty years old and I think this pairing is great, goddamn.

>Black Mask and his male assistant from the comic version of The Red Hood Saga
I just make things up along the way.

>Spock and Kirk
This one is too easy.

>Kid Loki and Thor
I am a horrible person. I've come to accept that.

>Batman and Joker
I literally don't have words to describe my fascination for this pairing. I've never quite actually cared about a ship before, but my God, I'm fucking obsessed with studying them. It doesn't help that the world of Batman comics is so stilted and inconsistent that I'll never truly be satisfied with anything that's done to them, because it'll just change again.

I literally have wasted hours of my life thinking about them. It's become quite a problem. I can't watch any films or read any books with heroes and villains, because I immediately connect it back to Batman and Joker.

The weirdest part of all, sometimes I'm not even certain if I ship them, as people, or if I ship them as what they represent, as entities or something. I don't fucking know.

I need help.

>>"I'm not even certain if I ship them, as people, or if I ship them as what they represent, as entities or something."

Okay. I'm confused. Is there any other way of shipping?

All of you here look through all your ship and you'll discover you ship only like up to five **ideas* that are going on and on and on on repeat.

Chaos/Order, Good/Evil, Jock/Geek, Female/Male, Something/Something.

Try to fucking show me a ship that does not fit in one of thees. Age/sex/belief/moral system is a wholly cosmetic detail.

For the record first gay!ship I could not deny was Haku/Zabuza. I ignored it for like a year. Then there was DN and after that entire multiverse of comix, both DC and Marvel, and then SPN and now I'm shipping like 128 ships for rls and read porn of everything else.

Incidentally? Harry/Draco does nothing for me. Remus Lupin is most damnably asexual character I have ever read. SasuNaru never registered to me as valid ship.
I'm not trying to judge. It's just to show that my fangirlish indoctrination was a slow thing plagued with many setbacks.

Okay, you got me there, bro, I really can't think of a ship that you couldn't describe as 'Something/Something'.

Seriously, though, plenty of ships boil down to 'Hottest two male characters in spitting distance' or 'Hottest male and female character in spitting distance', or 'Hottest two female characters in spitting distance'. And if age and sex were just details insignificant to peoples' shipping preferences, you'd see far fewer exclusively het/slash/femslash shippers out there, and fetishes for things like May/December couples wouldn't exist.

On top of all that, I can think of plenty of ships off the top of my head that don't really fit into one 'idea/idea' mold. Or which are different 'idea'/'idea' pairings for different people. Something like Bubblegum/Marceline became a big deal mostly because a. one of the show creators was herself drawing fanart of them as a couple long before they ever interacted in the show and b. the show itself finally ship teased them hard in one of the actual episodes. I don't think it was the fact that they're kind of sort of a goth/nerd couple that drew people to ship them, it was a combination of cute character designs that looked cute together and sheer excitement over the idea of a lesbian couple maybe possibly being made canon in a kids' show.

Different anon, but I can kinda see what you mean. I'm more drawn to certain fetishes, even if the canonicity is dubious (i.e. size kink, mad scientists being involved) and instantly turned off by others, even if there's more firm proof for them (i.e. incest (including non-blood relations), pedophilia, most furry pairings, abusive pairings, and character/person who's bullying them), although I admit I have personal wonks to backup all of my turn-offs.

I was skeptical on Sugarless Gum because of Finn/Bubblegum being a thing since the original pilot, the fact that it was very abruptly dropped, and because the subsequent Marceline/Bubblegum shipping didn't last beyond one episode. When we finally saw Marshall Lee interact with Prince Bubblegum, he essentially called him unfun and boring, and didn't flirt with him at all. The fact that some fans said "you must ship this or you're a homophobe" also really soured it for me. I do like seeing gay pairings in the show, though I wish there was more Prince/Princess Bubblegum shipped with people other than Marshall Lee/Marceline. How about Prince B./Finn or Prince B./Flame Prince?

First ship? Moulder x Scully as a kiddo.
First gay ship? Uh, I think it was Kurama x Kuronue.
First western ship? Toki x Skwisgaar.
Favorite western pairing that I will forever ship? Superman x Batman, especially after having watching Public Enemies. Like they could seriously not get any gayer than Public Enemies.

I've had many, many ships over the years but eventually they all fade. Not completely, of course; there is still a part of me that squeals at any hint of homoeroticism.
I have shipped:
Naruto and Gaara
Watson and Holmes (lol they are obviously gay)
Rafe and Danny in Pearl Harbour despite the film's crapness
Obi Wan Kenobi x Luke Skywalker
Kirk x Spock
Tony x Bruce
Batman x Robin
And many, many others.
But, ultimately, Vincent and Jerome in gattaca, the most plausible sci-fi film ever made, win the gold medal. perfect combo of angst, fluff, romance and smut. and Jude law is in it. need I say more?
