What if they found a way of, say, teleporting the baby out of Scar? Which wouldn't be weird... at all... :paranoid:

Suddenly, one of the kids called through the window from outside. "Miss Red, why is there a baby centaur in the acridian trough?"


EDIT: What are your ships?

Hmm, so far, the Autumn Crane, the Blazing Star, the Mourning Reign...

I mean, beyond the already established couples, which romantic pairs of M:EM characters do you find interesting or you'd just want to read about? The answer doesn't have to involve your characters, and I'm not talking about "there might have been something once", like with Nasina and Nasperge.

Oh.

:blush:

To answer honestly, I really haven't thought about it much. There was a time I had sort of considered Daneera+Denner, but even by the end of The War of the Wheel, and long before I conceived of Kerik, I had decided that didn't really work. I could get behind an Ellia+Raiker ship; I've thought of that as a possibility before. If shipping referred to platonic friendship, I'd be all about a Gale/Daneera, and it could maybe work as an actual ship. Maybe Ilyta+The Historian could have worked as a severe age mismatch, so maybe if he ever stops doing the Time Warp again...

I think this one has been brought up before, but I would ship Kahr/Jinsen, potentially. Jinsen seems fairly asexual these days, although he was married at one point and does, in fact, have a son, so this one might be dead in the water.

Raiker+Kimberley. Now Ruwin's mad at me...

I could see Lumina+Raef. Maybe Orida+Renn? Assuming Renn gets away from Vasilias, of course.

Shifter+Duchess. Now Barinellos isn't talking to me...

Sava Pith+Donagut could work in a weird way, but I don't think either of them would stick around the relationship for long. The Smart Ass in me wanted to say Ygraine/Maral, but probably not.

Hush+Chardis and Hush/Syl. Now Orcish is going to kill me...

Raef is a beefcake.

No, my revenge is in planting the image of a dead inside living flesh mannequin in bed with a protean, and probably be-tentacled, lothario in your head.
You're welcome.

Have they gone full Device on Scar? Poor girl.

Shipping usually involves romance, though Homestucks borrowed terms for things like "platonic life mates" and "erotic arch-rivalry" from an alien culture so it's not so clean cut nowadays.

Huh. I certainly can see the Kahr part; as you say, Jinsen's current behavior doesn't seem too open to romantic options.

Are we still talking about romance? Isn't Renn pretty young, mentally speaking?

I can see that; there are things that are not made to last.

Talk about size difference! :D

You're doing this on purpose, aren't you. And I have just talked about erotic rivalry...

Indeed. And I understand that he has a very big...uh...sword.

Well, I can't stay mad at someone who uses the term "be-tentacled."

:D

Well, you know, first try and all that...

Yeah, I couldn't not.

Also, although I am the very pinnacle and paragon of humility, I have to admit that the Mourning Reign is the greatest name for anything ever, so I like bringing it up when I can.

:D

Huh. I certainly can see the Kahr part; as you say, Jinsen's current behavior doesn't seem too open to romantic options.

To be fair, Kahr develops a crush on most guys he hangs around with for any length of time. Fisco escaped his attentions, and I don't think he ever really hit on Antine, though he might have. So if Kahr were to hang out with Jinsen, he'd probably be into a ship with him.

Maybe. I've always pictured him as being between 18-20, but rereading the dossier just now, I might be wrong about that.

Yes...

The Raiker+Kimberley one is a reference to a Gauntlet story I wrote a while back, for which Ruwin grounded me...

If shipping referred to platonic friendship, I'd be all about a Gale/Daneera, and it could maybe work as an actual ship.

To misappropriate an internet meme, "I would put them on a boat," which I have just now decided is the platonic version of "I ship them." And we do know that Gale is sensitive to the distinction between ships and boats!


Hush+Chardis and Hush/Syl. Now Orcish is going to kill me...

Well, without knowing precisely what Syl and Chardis are into, I would have to worry that Hush-Hush's symmetrical patterns of movement might cause some bedroom difficulties... :takei:

Does anyone else feel that if Keeper were still around, we'd have about a 92% chance of having this story written?

For all we know, it already exists.

Kidding aside for a second, Syl & Chardis/Hush-Hush is maybe number one on my list of "oh, God, I hope they never, ever meet" M:EM encounters, because, whenever I even think about it, I just have this horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach that Syl & Chardis would try to separate the husher twins, as some sick sort of game to see what would happen to them when they're cut off from each other.

Something like the scene in "3:15 to Dayko," only worse. Which is saying something, since that was already bad enough.

Boom!
Doing some necromancy in here.

This one is for Morgezka:

If, in your travels, you came across a place breeding dragons, and in general treating them not unlike livestock, how would you feel about such a place and the many baby dragons being reared and raised there?

Long have I awaited the day when some foolish mortal would once more summon me hither!

Mwhahahaha!

Or something like that...

Morgezka: "That depends. Did the dragons say no? Does that sound cruel? Well, guess what. The Multiverse is cruel. And dragons? Dragons are the cruelest of all." Sigh. "Alright, look. All dragons are beasts, alright? Some are nothing more and don't deserve any better treatment. The ones who can talk, though? Think? Reason? Don't lock them up. Don't try to put them in pens and milk them like cows. Oh, its not that they deserve any better. They don't. But they will burn you. Maybe you, maybe your child or your grandchild or your great grandchild, but you will get burned. And you'll have no one to blame but yourself."

* * *
So...Morgezka hates dragons. When she was a planeswalker, she would use the form to hunt and sometimes to fight, but she spent most of her time in human form. Ever since the Mending, she is no longer able to transform, and it kind of drives her nuts. For the record, she doesn't view herself as "better" than other dragons, but she does consider herself fundamentally "different" from them. While she is not in denial and knows perfectly well that she is, by species, a dragon, she doesn't really associate herself with dragonhood.

Thanks for the question!
