Lovers. In Space.  
I swear, I very rarely ever vote in these types of polls and I especially hate the ones where you can vote as many times as you want because it just stacks things unfairly in favor of the, er, uh, let's say 'really dedicated' fandoms. But vikingprincess pimped it out, so I headed over to het_reccers to check out their shipping poll, just to take a look. And now...I can't stop checking the stats! I have voted in every round since! But you guys, there is something bizarre happening in the universe, because Leia/Han are losing. I can't even with that.


Amy Pond/Rory Williams vs Scully/Mulder. I am happy to see that Scully/Mulder are winning by quite a few votes. In the last round they were up against Buffy/Angel and I got a little worried for them. Scully/Mulder, I do believe, are headed to the end of this thing. /knocks on virtual wood/

Elizabeth Bennet/Fitzwilliam Darcy vs Beckett/Castle. In the last round Beckett/Castle were up against Inara/Mal, which was kind of funny having two Nathan Fillion characters against each other. Currently, Bennet/Darcy are winning.

Now we get into this…Natasha/Clint are beating out Leia/Han. WTF IS THAT?! Look, I LOVE Natasha/Clint. I left the theater that day wanting to read all the fic about them as partners, as friends, as naked friends, as lovers, Having All The Sex. I totally voted for them in the last round, but now...look who they are up against. LEIA/HAN HAVE BEEN OTP SINCE 1977!! Come on, it's Leia's fault that women my age all think they can turn scoundrels into heroes. We are talking about Han & Leia here people!! "I LOVE YOU" - "I KNOW." "I'D RATHER KISS A WOOKIE!" "YOU LIKE ME BECAUSE I'M A SCOUNDREL." Just...just....come on! You know even Clint Barton is side-eyeing the poll results right now because...Dudes, HAN & LEIA!

And finally, Pepper/Tony vs Zoe/Wash. Once again, an Avengers pairing that I adore. So much, you guys, so much. It actually caused me pain to vote against them. It did. (For the record, I also love Peggy/Steve because Peggy is so awesome and I have recently discovered that I ship Darcy/Bruce). But you guys, WASH & ZOE. Okay. They are the best married couple that has ever been on our TV ever. (I just spent like ten minutes trying to think of a better married couple to grace our TV and I couldn't). Look, Wash got hit on by Christina Hendricks - have you seen her? Do you remember the 'Earth blowing out the stars' speech YoSaffBridg gave Wash? And he didn't even think about it! Cuz he loves his woman, dammit! And she loves her man! He won her over even with that stupid moustache! IT'S WASH & ZOE AND THEY ARE FUCKING LOSING! DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS, YOU GUYS!!

Dammit, vikingprincess, look what you have done to me! I JUST CAN'T EVEN THAT LEIA/HAN & ZOE/WASH ARE LOSING! Thank goodness for dedicated X-Files fans or I would be having a triple meltdown right now. Vote here!

In TV news - American Horror Story starts back up tonight! The thing is, my Tivo wasn’t picking it up despite people insisting it was coming back this week. Turns out, they are calling it “American Horror Story: Asylum”, so if you have it programmed into your DVR from last year, it may not be recognizing this new season. Check your DVRs and shit, people! Also, Ian McShane will be in this season and I heard he will be an adversary to Jessica Lange and that…that just sounds like the best thing ever.

SOMEONE HAD TO SHARE MY HEARTBREAK AND PASSION, OKAY, AND IT'S YOU, IT'S YOU AND LITHIUMLAUGHTER, AND WE ALL HAVE TO ROUSE THE FANDOMS TO INTENSITY BEYOND INTENSITY BECAUSE ZOE AND WASH MUST NEVER LOOOOOOOOOSE!

*pants*

I regret that I had but one vote to give for my 'ship.

MY LEVEL OF OBSESSION IS ALL YOUR FAULT!!!!!!!

I honestly expected your response to this post to just be one long evil laugh and maybe a finger point. Cuz you're evil.

/sigh/

I see Han & Leia are finally winning with a very light margin today, but Wash and Zoe are still down by about ten votes. When this thing started I was sure it was going to be Star Wars/Firefly in the final round - all the lovers in space.

You should recruit more people to vote! Nag, plead, whine, and threaten. Come on, you know you want to!

MUA HAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Random and totally unconnected TV comment: I barely made it through last season of Once Upon a Time because it is the SLOWEST MOVING SHOW ON TELEVISION and I watched the first episode of this season and gave up halfway through.

I vote Wash/Zoe. I found Inara/Mal kind of annoying. And Rory/Amy? really? I haven't looked at the poll -- do Rob & Laurie Petrie show up? They'd get my vote.
dodger_sister: washzoedodger_sister on October 19th, 2012 01:34 am (UTC)
I vote Wash/Zoe.

As one should! They are sadly still losing by about ten votes but at least Han & Leia have taken a lead over their opponents. That's something.

I found Inara/Mal kind of annoying.

Yeah, I always thought if they ever got together it would be a trainwreck. But I still felt, from the two seasons of Castle that I watched, that Mal & Inara had more chemistry than Castle & Beckett. I feel about Castle & Beckett the way I feel about Booth & Bones - I adore them as partners and friends and family, but I don't see it as romantic.

And Rory/Amy? really?

That's Dr. Who, right? They are kind of epic at the moment, at least according to my Flist.

I haven't looked at the poll -- do Rob & Laurie Petrie show up? They'd get my vote.

Who are they? Why do they sound familiar? I missed the first round, which is apparently when a lot of people got eliminated, so they may have been in there. Right now we are just down to the final 8 couples.

Random and totally unconnected TV comment: I barely made it through last season of Once Upon a Time because it is the SLOWEST MOVING SHOW ON TELEVISION and I watched the first episode of this season and gave up halfway through.

Well, I agree about season one. I kept saying every week that I would give it one more episode and somehow I watched to the end of the season. I guess I just didn't have a lot else that I was really watching, so nothing was pushing it out. Then I was a little curious as to what they intended to do with the magic aspect, so I said I would watch the premiere of the season, just to see where they took it and then pull it from my lineup because if I have to sit through the fucking David/Mary Margaret show for one more second, I might explode with frustration. There were some characters I really enjoyed but they never got enough screen time and I could give a rat's ass about Emma and since she is the lead, that seems problematic.

But then...you made a mistake turning off the premiere halfway through the episode. The very end of the ep? It was the first time I have ever been vocal during that show. There was a lot of "Holy shit!" and "Omg,"ing going on. It still is not the awesome show that it could have been, but I am enjoying what they have done with this season so much more than last season. If you have a chance to catch the premiere again, watch to the end before you make a final judgement call. You may still decide to give it up, but you may be pleasantly surprised at what they ended up doing.

Okay, I'll give it another shot.

Rob & laura Petrie are from the Dick Van Dyke show. Sweetest, funniest couple ever.

Cool! I just recommend you watch the season 2 premiere of OUaT. You may still decide to give it up but since they are kind of doing something different this year, it may grab your interest again. Let me know what you think!

Rob & laura Petrie are from the Dick Van Dyke show. Sweetest, funniest couple ever.

Awwww, Dick Van Dyke. I loved him. I was very, very little if I saw that show though, so I don't remember Rob & Laura. I am sure they were not on the poll list though, sadly, because it is a site for reccing het fanfic and they just selected the 100 most recced pairings (by looking at the numbers on their tagging system) and those were the couples they started with.

"Why you stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf-herder!"
*makes face* "Who's scruffy-looking?"

Ohhhhhhh I was in love with Han as a kid. While everyone else was all about Luke Luke Luke, I preferred the bad boy by far. And having a Wookiee as your best friend can't hurt either.

I DON'T CARE WHAT THAT LAST HORRIBLE X-FILES MOVIE SAID. They will always be in love with each other PLATONICALLY to me. Don't show me stupid scenes of them snuggling in bed, Chris Carter, you bastard! I like my Mulder and Scully in original recipe from seasons 1-7. Besides, we all know he's in love with Krycek anyway, sooooo...

I loved Wash and Zoe. True, hard to think of a cuter married couple that I actually liked.

Ian McShane??? This is exciting news, yes indeed.

Also, so many icon possibilities for this post!

My hands literally flapped at my sides just from reading that quote! I too was in love with Han. Well, at first I was like 4, so I was in love with Chewie, but then by the age of 7, it was all Han. I think I was kind of in love with Leia too, just a little. I still though blame Chewie for my obsession with both wanting to climb men and wanting men who are capable of carrying me around. I blame Han for my love of smart-mouthed petty criminials. So, really, my thing for Jayne Cobb? All Star Wars' fault. ;)

I DON'T CARE WHAT THAT LAST HORRIBLE X-FILES MOVIE SAID.

I don't even know what you are talking about. The X-Files ended after seven seasons and that is all there is too it. Mulder got abducted (as has always been his life's dream) and Scully had a baby (as she has always wanted) and Krycek lives! Also, The Lone Gunmen live! The End. What movie are you talking about? 8)

I loved Wash and Zoe. True, hard to think of a cuter married couple that I actually liked.

IKR? They are still losing by about ten votes. How is that possible?

Also, so many icon possibilities for this post!

I wavered between The X-Files and Star Wars.
