Fandoms are anything you think I know, listed in my interests, or you've seen me keysmash about on Plurk. The only one I won't answer for is Hero Tales because I find the cast totally unshippable except for maybe Ryuko being tsundere for Rinmei and that's canon.

OTP: Shizuo/Celty~ They have the raddest bromance!

Canon ship: I don't think I actually like anything canon in this show? Unless you count the guest stars at the Dollars flash mob, of course~

"If this happens I'll stab my eyes out with a spork" ship: goddamn Shinra/Celty. I know it's canon but he lied to her about the most important thing in the world just so she wouldn't leave him, and she was totally okay with this after like five minutes. do not fucking want.

This is part of a long rant about how Narita Ryohgo has fucking weird ideas about mature romantic relationships. I can look past the creepy-but-supposedly-romantic relationships in Baccano because the rest of the show is fab, but Durarara didn't quite hook me enough to make up for how rage-inducing canon Shinra/Celty is.

"You are one sick bastard" ship: N-namie/Seiji oh god. She just loves her baby brother so much she'll do anything for him.

"I dabble a little" ship: the van gang in a polypile. I love them but I can't pair them off because it'd be unfair to the rest of them :(

"It's like a car crash" ship: I... don't know. Celty/Izaya would be horrible but interesting horrible, though.

"Tickles my fancy but not sold just yet" ship: Shizuo and a hot blonde from the novels named Vorona. Apparently they're both into violence, but I'd have to read the books~

"Makes no canon sense but why the Hell not" ship: huh. I really don't know.

"Everyone else loves it but I just don't feel it" ship: Shizaya. It... only really works as dubcon with Izaya doing the dubcon, and I don't feel that coming from Izaya.

Canon ship: They most certainly do count.
Spork stabbing: More or less how I feel about it. :|b
Tickles my fancy: :3~ and <3~
Everyone loves it: I don't get why people pair them off, but I have trouble getting hates!ships in the first place, so.

Tickles my fancy (cont): Well, except that she wants to kill him. But $10 says that'll change.

re: Vorona: ... hot. also, tsuuuuuun~

I think that with Shizaya it's because they're both hot and have an extremely charged and tense relationship! Fans love that shit.

Ngl, I ship it.

...well, I guess it makes more sense than shipping something flat.

/is equally as predictable in her answers!

OTP: you should know this by now if you don't it's Ladd/Lua. I mean he's a homicidal maniac and is all "baby you should be so happy you'll be the last person in the world I'm going to kill", and she's just so happy about the whole thing, and in the manga she tries to egg him on into killing Placido for real, but he's so protective and she's so protective (think about why she went up to the roof in the first place) that I don't even. I just can't even.

also they're really hot

Canon ship: see above

"If this happens I'll stab my eyes out with a spork" ship: The anime fandom kind of latched onto Eve/Dallas because he is ~very sensitive~ about his little sister and she pretty much gave up any chance of a normal life to stay with him in the lab after Don Runorata had him pulled out of the Hudson (and also because fandom loves incest). But in the books he explicitly is thinking about killing her so he can get her share of the inheritance. yeah no. do not fucking want ever.

"You are one sick bastard" ship: Ladd/Chane, mostly because the Japanese audio sounds like the Flying Pussyfoot is a train to rapetown and your conductor for this trip is Ladd Russo. Should not want, but Fujiwara Keiji really sexed it up in a way the dub didn't.

"I dabble a little" ship: The canon pairings I'm not in totally in love with or horrified by, like Firo/Ennis. They're cute and I'll read them if I like the summary.

"It's like a car crash" ship: Anything that would happen in prison or in New York during the Alcatraz arc. There is some Ennis+Miria official art from that arc which is totally adorable and makes me think that if things had gone a little differently, Miria/Ennis and Isaac/Firo would be made of amazing and incredible. The reason I say it's a trainwreck is because pretty much anything Isaac and Miria get involved in is a happy trainwreck: you should walk away because it's insane, but it's so adorable you can't.

Then there are of course the more standard trainwrecks like Ladd/Firo beating hell out of each other because Firo's the only one who's a match for Ladd and then it turns into a foe yay kind of thing, and Graham/Lua missing their husband is it wrong that I think Graham would be the one who feels terrible about it and Lua would be like "well I'm still alive so he won't consider it me being unfaithful /shrug".

"Tickles my fancy but not sold just yet" ship: I'd... actually like to hear more about Huey and a character in the 1700s novels named Monica Campanella, who apparently was the mother of his (now-immortal) son. I have been told that she's crazy, and I've seen art of her and she's really pretty so this could end in something that made me actually give a damn about Huey.

"Makes no canon sense but why the Hell not" ship: Alternate ending: Claire/Rachel and Chane/Nice or Chane/Nice/Jacuzzi. Claire/Rachel would be hilarious and full of Claire being a dumbass and Rachel being tsundere, and ngl if not for Jacuzzi I'd have been shipping Chane/Nice really hard in the OVA. Nice and Jacuzzi (but especially Nice because Jacuzzi's in the hospital) are the first friends Chane's ever had, and if she got that attached to Claire, well...

"Everyone else loves it but I just don't feel it" ship: I was hoping Claire/Chane would be a massive awkward dramatic trainwreck, but apparently 1) she fell in love with him right off, which is sad more than sweet since Chane is an emotionally abused tykebomb and Claire is the first person who's ever told her he loved her and 2) if she had rejected him he would have moved on and asked out Rachel.

Yeah. The fandom pretty much doesn't get this, though, and ever since one of the big Hetalia artists moved on to Baccano and started shipping it, it's gotten a ton of fans, so everyone else loves it. I'll admit I do think that how Claire got her whereabouts is adorable in a Claire way (he hung Nicholas off the El train because screw paying for information), but it just seems really imbalanced and it's supposed to be cute.
