there's something so easy in how you're sweet to me
Fine, I'll play.

The 30 Days, 30 Ships Meme
Day 01 - What is your current favorite ship?



Natalia and Guy, Tales of the Abyss


First of all, Duh. I have been obsessively writing for these two for a year and a half now. When I played the game, I thought they had some cute friendship moments, and even a couple of cute flirty moments, but then the anime came around, and for some reason I was totally hooked, even though it didn't give anything new, and in fact left out my favorite shippy line those bastards.

"If His Majesty insists on rejecting you, then come with me to Malkuth. I'd welcome you with open arms."

Honestly, how do you turn that down?

I don't know if there's anything new I can say about why I like them together. I try to cover it in my fics, especially this new one I'm working on. They've known each other forever, they have a friendship that grows through the main storyline, and I think they'd complement each other better than any other two. They appreciate each other's strengths, his honor, her compassion; they know each other's secrets and tragedies. Part of the appeal for them would be a do-over as the symbol of peace Aslan and Jozette wanted to be, I'm sure. Here are two people who know the price of war, one as a future ruler of her country, and one as a survivor who lost everything. They'd do everything they could to keep it from happening again. If Nat can't keep that promise to change things with AschLuke, I know Guy would step in.

And there's kind of that stock romance novel appeal of the princess who's really a commoner and the servant who's really a nobleman. There's great potential with that.

Plus, look at them. Pretty.

Very pretty.

Everyone is doing this meme now. I may have no choice but to join.

Some of them I just can't come up with answers for, which is why I hadn't posted it until now.

I love this meme! Ah, since I don't follow a whole lot of people this is the first time I've seen it. I am soooo going to do this meme. :)

It's harder than it looks! I'm looking forward to seeing what other people put.

Yeah, it totally is, I'm finding that out. I hardly have any friends that update their LJ's anymore so I don't really know anyone else doing the meme except for you. I need to make more friends, lol.

Heh, I need to, too. Most of my flist I met through CCS fandom, and when we all started to move on from that, we didn't have anything else in common. I dragged poor cal_reflector into ToA kicking and screaming just so I'd have someone to talk about it with.

Ya, most of my flist was also from the CCS fandom. We were on a mailing list (CCSFWML on Yahoo Groups...geez, was that really 10 years ago? holy crap!) then we migrated over to Blogger, then we migrated over to LJ. And while some of them still *occasionally* update, most of them are just not into fandoms of any sort anymore. Well, people move on.

A few of my flist I met through other fandoms (Escaflowne and Furuba), but they've moved on too.

So...yeah. It feels kinda lonely on lj sometimes, lol.
