Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme from Goodreads, created by Lainey from Gingerreadslainey and now moderated by Sam from ThoughtsOnTomes. This one was all the way back from October, but since Valentine’s day is coming up, I thought it’d be fun =P In case you’re not familiar, non-canon means that it didn’t happen in the text of the book/graphic novel/TV show/etc. And ship is short for relationship!
5. Barry and Kara (CW Arrowverse)
Is it technically still the Arrowverse if you include Supergirl? In any case, these two acting like total puppies in the Supergirl S1 crossover episode melted my heart. I mean, come on. He brings her ice cream and then they go out for donuts.
4. Ollie and Laurel (Arrow)
Y’all… Green Arrow and Black Canary are always together. They’re a power couple. It’s okay if it didn’t end well, they’re like peanut butter and jelly. They even got married in the comics!
That they didn’t get together in the show (in anything other than flashbacks to before Ollie being stranded on the island) was a disappointment. I was waiting for Ollie to call her “pretty bird”… had a bet with my boyfriend 8D
3. Katniss and Cinna (The Hunger Games)
I committed kind of a sin with THG… I saw the movie before I read the books. *COLLECTIVE GASP* So I had literally no idea what was going to happen as far as plot, ships, nothing. I shipped them from the moment Cinna asked Katniss “Don’t you know how beautiful you look?” before she goes out for her interview:
*sob* So beautiful. Katniss and Peeta or Gale? Gross. Katniss and Cinna’s where it’s at.
2. Harry and Hermione (Harry Potter series)
I was sO MAD when Hermione and Ron ended up together. I shipped Harry and Hermione the entire series. The biggest disappointment of my childhood was when I finished the last book for the first time and Harry and Hermione didn’t end up together. Ron never treated her right. Harry probably ended up continuing being their mediator after they got married… probably full-blown marriage counselor, as if he didn’t have enough to deal with already being Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. This scene from Deathly Hallows broke my heart:
They balance each other. Harry goes with his heart, whereas Hermione is more logical. They learn from each other and grow throughout the series. Hermione was ALWAYS THERE for Harry, even when Ron left. Hermione was one of Harry’s best friends… and they say you should spend the rest of your life with your best friend.
1. Batman and Wonder Woman
This… is my OTP. My ship to end all ships. And it all started with the Justice League cartoon:
Just… look… at them!!! So perfect!!! So good and pure!!! It never came to fruition for which my heart will always be broken but it was always hinted at. They’re opposites in a lot of ways. Diana works in the light, but Bruce works in the dark. She’s smart enough to keep up with him but never makes him feel inferior for not having superpowers. Bruce respects her and tries to protect and save her at various times in the show, though Diana is definitely not a damsel in distress. For example, the picture above of Diana kissing his cheek is immediately after Bruce tried to dig her out from under a bomb she had disabled and was apparently crushed under. She emerges a few minutes later by throwing the bomb off herself and kisses him after noticing the dust and dirt on his hands. There’s even a scene of them dancing!
❤ ❤ ❤
If they don’t get together in the live action Justice League… I will riot 8D
There you have it! Five ships that didn’t happen but definitely should have D,X My heart can’t take it!
