Rip It or Ship It? Tag

(Why I am I here? Shouldn't I be on hiatus? Well, I am. But today marks the almost half way point in July! Also, I was bored) 

In Which I Use Too Many Gifs To Make Up For the Fact That I'm Not Actually Here
*Note: All gifs are from GIPHY*

A few days before I left on my July Hiatus, Lila Kims @The Red-Hooded Writer tagged me with the Rip It or Ship It Tag

 It's fairly simple. You write names of characters on slips of paper and draw them at random to create couples! Then you list them in a blog post and decide whether you love or hate the pairing. 

But I've decided to do the tag with a bit of a twist...
You know all those love triangles we're bombarded with in YA? 


I had the great idea to use ONLY people from love triangles...that turned out to be not as easy as I'd thought, since most of the triangles and girl-boy-boy and that messed with my girl-to-boy ratio. 

I DID manage to find four couples...and I decided to make the couples based off the loser (I guess?) of the love triangle. 

(So they're may be spoilers? I will list the books/series at the top of each ship, so you can skim through it if you want to avoid any accidental majorly huge spoilers...)

I also scrambled up some other characters from various books I've read...


Percy Jackson and The Olympians + The Hunger Games

Percy, Annabeth and Rachel + Katniss, Peta and Gale

I think Rachel and Gale would get along amazingly. Obviously it wouldn't work out after the end of the last book, but...hey, a girl can dream. 


Little Women + Pride and Prejudice

Laurie, Amy and Joe + Elizabeth, Darcy and Wickham 

I am laughing unbelievable hard at the idea of Josephine and Wickham. He would try and be all dastardly romantic and she would hang upside down out of a tree with her arms crossed or something. Or she would be like, "Sure we can hang out. I'm going to run madly through the woods." and then she'd just take up and poor, poor Wickham would try and keep up, but end up just gasping for breath in the middle of the woods. 

As funny as that sounds, RIP IT!

The Lord of the Rings + The Phantom of the Opera

Aragorn, Arwen and Eowyn + Christine, Raoul and The Phantom 

As soon as the Phantom tried any of his over controlling  abusive boyfriend shit, Eowyn would whip out her sword and CHOP CHOP. Then she'd give his dead body a clever, powerful one liner, flip her hair and leave. 


The Selection + The Ranger's Apprentice 
America, Maxon and Aspen + Will, Alyss and Evelyn 

I don't think it would work out...Especially if Aspen acted like he did at the beginning of the series. Evelyn would just move on and find someone better. 


So what did you think? I'm leaving this tag open (since I'm not actually reading all your I don't know who has been tagged or who is already planning on stealing it from someone else...) 

Well, I'm out of here.

See you at the beginning of August!


  1. I came for the GIFs and was not disappointed. Great post, MK!

    1. I was tempted to tag you, but I restrained myself. :P

  2. Lol! I love how you twisted the tag! Also Jo + Wickham... *dies laughing* That would soooooo not work out. It would go exactly how you detailed. 😂

    Awesome post!

    1. It would be fun to watch...

      March sisters: *sitting by window watching Wickham slowly be worn to death*

  3. I died at the thought of Eowyn and the Phantom!!!

    1. It would have solved the theatre's problems though...

  4. OH MY WORD. YOU HAVE OUT DONE YOURSELF MK. I only know the second one, but that was hilarious! I might steal this...

    1. *bows*
      Thank you, thank you.

      Please do! Steal away! It's SO much fun!

  5. Too funny MK, Jo and Wickham together would be awesome!

    1. Thank you!
      I think this is the first time I've ever used a gif on my blog...
      My favorite was probably the cut, cut, cut one :P

    1. I fully expect you to do this tag...BUT DO IT USING ONLY CHARACTERS FROM ONE UNIVERSE!

  8. Those gifs...the noise I made was not human.

    I might steal this tag, because this is the funniest thing ever, and you, MK, have made it even funnier!!

  9. This is hilarious! I just love the concept behind the tag and the fact that you changed it to be with love triangles is just amazing! Awesome job!

    1. My biggest problem was there are so many love triangles...but only so many boy-girl-girl ones so my ratios were messed up :(

  10. This is hilarious! I love the second one with Jo and Wickham. It'd probably be the first time Wickham would be confused and in over his head with a girl. XD Nice post!
