Padme Amidala and Anakin Skywalker from the prequel trilogy share the ultimate tragic story of forbidden love. Kaitie shares some of the things that appeal to her the most, despite me getting side-tracked by all sort of other fandom things.
The Shipping (Pod)Cast Posts
We’re starting the new year with Miraculous Ladybug, another animated series, and the het pairing of Marinette Dupain-Cheng aka Ladybug and Chat Noir aka Adrien Agreste, who make up an entire love square all by themselves.
With She-Ra we’re back with a fandom I know nothing about, but August gives me a great primer on what makes Catra and Adora such a wonderful pairing – one with the definite potential to become canon, which makes a nice chance, especially for a lesbian couple.
To call Stucky a fandom juggernaut is to put it mildly, and Jen and myself have lots of fun exploring the vast realms of Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes in the MCU.
The Trap is part of the third season of the Taiwanese HIStory anthology series and our first foray into BL (Boys Love). This is an area I’ve fallen headfirst into recently, so we do get a bit side-tracked sometimes, but always come back to Tang Yi and Shao Fei.
Quick update: Unfortunately the episode planned to end my mini hiatus fell through, so now I’m looking for someone who’d like to talk to me about their OTP. Any and all ships welcome that haven’t been covered before!
With popslash we’re moving into dangerous waters, as I talk with stellarbisexual about the first Real Person ship for this podcast (not counting the special Patreon episode). However, mostly we bond over being fandom olds and squee excitedly as we reminisce – not just about JC Chavez and Justin Timberlake but also some other shared fandoms.
Surprisingly, the fandom of Richie Tozier and Eddie Kasprak (Reddie) from horror franchise IT likes their ship mostly in one flavour: fluff.
Arthur and Eames only share a handful of moments in Christopher Nolan’s Inception – however, the subjects of episode 18 somehow managed to take fandom by storm.
Inspired by the friendship between Dominic Sherwood & Matthew Daddario, who portray our OTP Jace & Alec, I took the opportunity to talk with some ladies from Jalec Squad about on- and off-screen chemistry, touching on the topic of real person shipping.
