Day 17: Favourite SPN Ship



I'm not sure, but there seems to be two types of shipping (if I understand the term "shipping" correctly) - canon ships and non canon ones. I'm going to split mine up.

My fav canon pairings would have to be - Sam/Jess, Sam/Sarah, Castiel/Meg, Dean/Lisa and John/Mary

My fav non-canon ship is definitely Sam/Dean. They are the only pairing I actively seek out in stories - though I have occasionally read some others - Dean/Benny, Sam/Cas, Sam/Kevin.

Though I have to add Dean/Impala after being delightfully persuaded by cassiopeia7's lovely post.

I am going to keep this one short since ships are one of those areas people can get so passionate and heated about lol.

Favourite Canon Ship: Ill pick one for each brother :)

Sam has only had two canon romantic relationships that we know of Jessica and Amelia. While I liked Amelia well enough I think her and Sam lacked the spark/Chemistry to make me ship it and since his relationship with Jess was mostly pre show I am not overly invested in it. If I had to pick though Id go for Sam/Jess as they did seem happy in the Pilot and their relationship had such a strong impact on Sam driving him in many ways during the earlier seasons.

For Dean I would pick Lisa. While I don't ship it I thought that Lisa made a rather good partner for Dean. She was caring, understanding and most importantly was aware of the supernatural and of the fact that Dean was damaged and yet she was willing to welcome him into her home and help as best she could with healing that damage. I just thought Lisa added a nice sense of stability to Dean's life. Of course as I said while I though that Lisa made a good partner for Dean although it's been a while since I watched season six I do remember having the impression Dean loved what she offered i.e. a ready made family more than Lisa herself. However, if they ever reunited and Dean developed genuine feelings I'd be content not overly happy but content as a viewer with a Dean/Lisa end game

And now here comes the controversial one...

Favourite Fanon Ship: Dean/Castiel.

Hi,


Sam has only had two canon romantic relationships that we know of Jessica and Amelia

It's probably what confuses me a bit with shipping. Even though Sam and Sarah didn't have a long term relationship on the show, I figure it's a canon ship because there's evidence that they were romantic. And I agree - little to no chemistry been Sam and Amelia (which was a shame because I think if there had have been it would have been a much for powerful storyline). I like Sam/Jess because there is definitely a sense that he was happy during the time he was with her.

And I agree re Dean/Lisa. I actually really liked Lisa and thought they created a great match for Dean. I'm not sure I'd be overly thrilled either if the show ended with them back together - mainly because of what he did to her. I suspect regaining any sort of trust after something like that (wiping her memory) would be pretty tough. That's not to say I wouldn't mind seeing her again. I'd love to see her brought back into a story line (not to kill her off though..)

Hee...and Dean/Castiel isn't controversial. :) (well, not to me...) I absolutely respect anyone's ship. I think it's wonderful that we can all find something we like - and like to ship - in the show. <333

Generally when I think of 'canon' ships I think of actual romantic relationships which have been established on the show. For me Sam & Sarah definitely had a mutual attraction that could have grown into more, but it wasn't really a ship any more than we'd consider one of Dean's random one night stands. Of course the term has no set meaning really so I'm sure there are others who would count Sarah, one night stands etc as ships :)

Fanon ships on the other hand of course have no limits at all. They can range from Wincest and Destiel where the two characters involved have had lots of interaction for characters to interpret as they will right down to Samandriel where the two characters involved were in one scene together lol.

I suspect regaining any sort of trust after something like that (wiping her memory) would be pretty tough. That's not to say I wouldn't mind seeing her again. I'd love to see her brought back into a story line (not to kill her off though..)

I would be interested in seeing Lisa brought back and them exploring the consequences especially since one of my biggest annoyances with the show is how they let Dean do things like mind-rape Lisa, kill Benny and portray it as right. Yet any other character would be condemned for those same actions. // pet peeve alert.

Hee...and Dean/Castiel isn't controversial. :) (well, not to me...) I absolutely respect anyone's ship. I think it's wonderful that we can all find something we like - and like to ship - in the show. <333

Nice to know :) LJ seems to be the retreat of the moderate fans. I had to bow out of tumblr and avoid twitter because it seemed every page I went on was filled with people bitching about those evil "brother fans" or "Destiel" fans depending on where they stood. Ugh.

LOL, you crazy woman! ♥ And thank you!

I agree with every one of your choices, especially Dean/Benny. \o/ And a resounding "yes!" to both Sassy and Castiel/Meg, the one that surprised me by how much I loved the demon/angel connection. (Please let Meg return!) Sam/Kevin, I had never considered, but it makes perfect sense. Those two nerdy mega-brains would definitely be attracted to each other.

Hee! Thank YOU for your Dean/Impala reminder.

I really enjoyed watching Meg/Castiel. I thought they would make a really interesting couple. It's a shame we'll never have a chance to see more of that. And I've read a couple of short Kevin/Sam - it's an interesting dynamic. I don't read much outside of Dean/Sam - but occasionally, if it's a writer I know, I'll give some others a go.

Meg/Cas <3333

I have a soft spot for Dean/Impala and I mostly blame this vid :D

Yay Meg/Cas!

I certainly have a soft spot for Dean/Impala. :) I'll have to dl that vid and watch it. It looks cool!

Canon ships - Sam/Sarah Blake. I just loved Sarah and reckon she'd have been good for Sam
Dean/Lisa. Because Lisa was wise, and generous, and gave without expecting too much in return. She was fierce and reminded me of a young Ellen. She was clearly ready to fight for her mini family.

Non canon ships - Sam/Dean. But if it's well written, Dean/Cas, and I'll give virtually any pairing a try at least once, though I won't necessarily seek it out. I've read good fics with Gabe/Sam, Sam/Kevin, Dean/Ellen etc etc...
I did recently have to draw the line at Death/Dean - I can buy friendship there not not sex!

I think Sarah and Sam would have made a lovely couple. :((

And I really liked Lisa. A lot! She had the right mix to make her a good choice for Dean.

And what? Death/Dean...hmmmm..noooooo. Mostly, if I don't want to picture a character naked then I really don't think I could read them having sex. And as awesome as Julian is I really don't wanna see him without clothes..... ;D

Oh and yes, Dean/Ellen. I read a lovely Dean/Ellen fic a while ago and wow - that pairing really was wonderful. I could imagine Dean with someone like Ellen.

Re: Death - exactly!!! I love Julian to bits, I love Death as a character but as a love interest - noooooooo!

Sam/Dean is my OTP

I like Meg/Cas.
