(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...
- THE LOVE TRIANGLES! -
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 posts...so 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!
