I thought of this while at work today. The title gives it away more or less but i'll elaborate as I tend to write in a way that makes people think differently...
Let's take your OTP, that one ship you ship above all other ships like a boss forever and ever for years to come etc etc etc insert marriage vows here. Now let's wipe that OTP from existence in your mind, warping said mind so that shipping your OTP would never cross it, EVER. What ship would be your OTP instead? Would you have an OTP? Would not shipping your OTP affect different aspects of your life both online and offline? I know everyone is different when it comes to shipping.
For my answer? Well, life without Nynaeveshipping would probably be good for mai Wifeu as i'm always getting her to draw me fanart of the two to keep me happy. I wouldn't declare my love for it when I go to train stations and in terms of shipping the characters off? Sneasel with Misdreavus and Michelle with whoever just happens to be my latest character obsession. I doubt I would settle her down.
As for what would be my OTP instead? TBTH over the years it would change. Before loving Nynaeveshipping I was a total cigarette for PsiLuckshipping so I would still adore that... then along came D/P. Senirasushipping is by far and wide my D/P OTP and one of my top five so that would gain the coveted status
and therefore I would be smited by everyone because I am so elitist with shipping it. HGSS' introduction of the stupid sexy Rocket Executives made me squee over them and ship Grecianshipping/Strategistshipping. Seeing as i'm currently very obsessed with them... yeah, joint OTP no doubt. Although Grecianshipping's my poly OTP as it stands anyway.
So what about the rest of you?
