HELLOOOO BOOKISH PEOPLE!
Kerys is back and this time with a tag
that she stole! I mean is it even a tag if a) I don’t do it a million years late or b) I wasn’t actually tagged in the first place but still do it??
Today I’m going to be doing the Rip it or Ship it tag which I have been obsessed with ever since I saw it on Rain’s blog! I’m still shocked at how clearly I can remember this post from *hops over to check* November 2018?? when I can barely remember what I had for breakfast?? (future kerys: i had cereal acTUALLY. hah in yoUR FACE.)
I am very qualified to do this
even though I may be a lonely single pringle and judging couples is totally my jam! This tag was originally made by Emma and I am so so so excited to do this!! I chose 20 characters from various books and then picked their names out at random! I cannot wait to see how this goes so imma just start now adfdgfhgj;
but first… I hope you’re all staying safe during Covid-19 and this makes you smile! I have some thoughts about this virus and they don’t really make sense in a paragraph so let’s bullet point!
- It’s crazy how we read loads of books about the world ending (not that it’s going to) and how a pandemic is aCTUallY happening.
- It’s so weird that schools will probably teach about this in the future like – “Evaluate 3 responses to the Covid-19 virus and their effects'” – like whATTT?!
I go old school British when I freak outit feels so unreal!
- schools have closed in England and Friday was my last day. there was free!! food!! and we had non-uniform AND a class party at the end of the day!
- it sucks that school could be closed till SEPTEMBER. That’s half A frEAkinG yeAR people
i barely get along with the fam in the evenings how am i supposed to manage that long?!
- at least we get to tell our grandkids that we lived through a pandemic!
i mean only if we survive that long (totally joking sorry if I stress you out xx)
okay crazy rambling over let’s go!
How does it work?
1. Choose some bookish characters.
2. Pick two names randomly.
3. Decide whether you ship the characters or not!
*it doesn’t seem that complicated so let’s hope i can’t mess it up
Ronan Lynch (The Raven Cycle) + Blue Sargent (The Raven Cycle)
Ship name: Blonan?? Ronlue??
okay I suck at making ship names but however unattractive the name might be, I FRIENDSHIP THESE TWO SO MUCH!! Like I can really imagine them teaming up to make fun of Gansey and Adam; Blue being all badass and Ronan being grudgingly proud; them having inside jokes and doing stupid pranks! *screams internally* I am so here for this! I don’t ship them in a romantic way but the friendSHIP is so strong!! We are off to a brilliant start!!
“No homework. I got suspended,” Blue replied.
“Get the fuck out,” Ronan said, but with admiration. “Sargent, you asshole… For what?”
“Emptying another student’s backpack over his car. I don’t really want to talk about it.”
“I do,” Ronan said.
“Well, I don’t. I’m not proud of it.”
Ronan patted her leg. “I’ll be proud for you.”
Baz (Carry On) + Jimuro (Steel Crow Saga)
Ship Name: Jaz
Jaz is kinda a snappy name but honestly… I don’t see it. Jimuro is all ‘for the good of my people’ and he’s super into become a ruler and I don’t think Baz would really care much about that. Also, they’re from such different books that I just can’t imagine them together! This ship just wouldn’t work in my eyes.
Tala (Steel Crow Saga) + Nina Zenik (Six of Crows)
Ship Name: Tana
Tala would definitely take some time to warm up to Nina but I could see them becoming good friends! I can see coffee chats and Netflix and pizza! They’re both fierce, strong women and would bond over all the suffering they’ve had to deal with in their lives. I don’t know if they’d fall for each other (actually maybe after a bit) but mainly I think their friendship would be so powerful!
Winnie Mehta (My So-Called Bollywood Life) + Adam Parrish (The Raven Cycle)
Ship Name: Adie
omg yes. I could totally see this! Adam would be that shy, super smart kid in school and Winnie would be that arty, passionate, confident kid! They’d get thrown together for some school event or other. Adam might find Winnie annoying at first but they’d both fall for each other’s kindness and become the underdog power couple of the school!
Inej Ghafa (Six of Crows) + Locke (The Cruel Prince)
Ship Name: Ink(e)
NO WAY JOSE. Inej would get so fed up about Locke using people and being such a douchebag that she would stab him asap (I don’t blame her) so this ship is well and truly riPPED.
no it’s not just because I don’t like locKE for hurting my sneaky twins.
Hermione Granger (Harry Potter) + Grey Emerson (Of Curses and Kisses)
Ship Name: Grason (said Gray-Son) is the best I could do!
oooh! I can totally see these two curled up with a book, just reading with some hot chocolate together! They’d have really deep discussions and interesting debates and they wouldn’t get bored of each other!
Taryn Duarte (The Cruel Prince) + Kaz Brekker (Six of Crows)
Ship Name: Karyn
yeah no… Kaz is a streetsmart Dreg who plots heists and is all-around amazing. Taryn, however, would rather look pretty and go to balls
and be a backsTABBING TRAITOR. Kaz would NOT be able to stand that. He’d just get so annoyed by Taryn!! This is just a complete and utter no.
Spensa (Skyward) + Cardan (The Cruel Prince)
Ship Name: Carsa?
I can kinda see it! Not as much as Judan obviously but Cardan would make Spensa teach him about flying and she’d get irritated by him and his entitlement but they’d slowly become friends! And they’d make such a strong team!
Ariel Stone (You Asked for Perfect) + Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter)
Ship Name: Stralfoy?
- Draco teaching Ariel to be proud of himself and know his worth!!
- Ariel stopping Draco from being
- Ariel showing Draco around the Muggle world!!
- Draco moving in with Ariel and being amazed by simple things like coffee makers!!
- Draco being fiercely protective and hexing anyone who tried to annoy them!!
I can soooo see it!!
Jude Duarte (The Cruel Prince) + Zafira (We Hunt the Flame)
Okay they’re both amazing, strong, female protagonists but do I really see it? Spoiler alert: No. This is also because they’re just from such different worlds that I just can’t really see it happening!
Chat with me! What do you think? Do you ship any of these pairs? What’s your favourite ship that wasn’t a ship? Mine’s Dramione! How are you doing? Divulge your secrets…
