I Ship It: A Valentine's Day Link-up

Fandom is full of couples to love. From Beauty and the Beast to Thor and Jane, we've got so much to love about... well, love. One True Pairings (OTPs) have wrecked our hearts, and will continue to do so for years to come. There's nothing quite like rooting for your favorite people to get together, and rejoicing when they do (or continuing to angst about how they're not together for 5 seasons). Whatever the scenario, we fangirls know this feeling well.

So what better way to celebrate than a blog link-up?

Your OTP Dream Team--aka Jaime Heller, Sarah Munson, and myself--put our heads together to create a link-up where you can headcanon about your favorite fictional couple.

Wait, what? How do I do this?

You answer our 14 questions on your blog about your fictional couple of choice. Then, sign the linky below. We want this to be a huge event, so be sure to check out the links of the fellow participants!

Step by step guide:

1. Pick a fictional couple. Whether it's from a book, a movie, a TV show, a manga, a video game... anything goes. (They must be characters not of your own creation, however.)
2. Check out our questions and come up with your answers. No answer is the wrong one! This is where you get to dream all about your favorite fictional OTP.
3. Post the answers on your blog. Don't forget to link back to this blog! Also, please use our button below, or link back to this blog.

4. Come back here and sign the linky!
5. Enjoy! (Side effects include headcanons, lots of feelings, and potential tears.)

So what are you waiting for?

Here are the questions you'll need to answer.
  1. ​​What is their current relationship status, and how did they meet? 
  2. Why do you want them to be together? What makes them better together? 
  3. What song(s) remind you of them? 
  4. How would they divide household chores (cooking, cleaning, etc.)? 
  5. What would this couple argue most about, and who is most likely to compromise? 
  6.  What interests do they share? 
  7. Are they introverts, extroverts, one of each? 
  8. What would their first date be like? (If they've already had their first date, describe their ideal date.) 
  9. Do they get along with each other's families? 
  10. In what ways do they drive each other crazy? In what ways do they drive other people crazy together? 
  11. Where would they go for their honeymoon/a romantic getaway? 
  12. Do they share any similarities to classic romantic couples? (I.E., Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, Beauty and the Beast) 
  13. What would their "celebrity couple" name be? (I.E., Brangelina) ​​
  14. Where do you see this couple in 10 years?​

We can't wait to read your answers!
