Hello Blogging world! I am back! From my unannounced, unexplained, unplanned and way longer than expected hiatus. And what better way to jump back into things than a light hearted quick fun tag.
The R.I.P it or ship it tag I believe was originally created by the ever amazing Emma from Emma books on Youtube. For those of you who may not know, the way this tag works is simple. You write down an even number of character names on separate bits of paper. Whether it be book, TV or Movie characters. You then fold these papers up and mix them together. Then essentially you pick two of the papers out at a time. And the fun is in your reactions and deciding if you would either ship those two characters or R.I.P it, as in that ship is dead!
This time around I will be using all Book characters. I only chose 10 characters (five pairs) so that this post will hopefully not become a billion years long. Then again who knows I might have a LOT to say about some of the matches! haha. Anyways let’s jump right in!
Match 1: Thomas Cresswell & Feyre Archeron
Ok so I love both Thomas and Feyre and I love them with their OTP’s. However I think maybe this could kind of work? They are both Tough Adventurous people who want to do good and are fiercely loyal to those they care about. And although Thomas is very deductive and brain smarts I think Feyre and her sharp tongue could more than keep up. I think the main thing that makes me think these two could kind of work is the fact that they both believe and know that no one but their equal, and someone who will treat them as such and even challenge them, will do. However while death is Thomas’s calling, even though Feyre could more than hold her own I think she’s seen enough for her life time.
Verdict: SHIP it
Note: Thomas Cresswell is from the Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Kerri Maniscalco. And Feyre is from the ACOTAR series by Sarah J Maas.
Match 2: Audrey Rose Wadsworth & Cather
Oh wow ok haha I think this one is going to be a no. I think maybe they could possibly be friends as Audrey rose is capable of being nice and polite and also fiercely loyal. I think Audrey also craves good female friendships. I think if Audrey kept trying long enough that Cath would also accept her as a friend despite sometimes preferring to keep to herself. As for a couple I do not think they would work at all. I do not think Cath would be anywhere as near adventurous enough for Audrey and I think Audrey’s profession would not be up Cath’s ally at all. Bottom line Audrey needs an equal and I just don’t think Cath could be that.
Verdict: R.I.P it
Note: Audrey Rose Wadsworth is from the Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Kerri Maniscalco. And Cather is from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.
Match 3: Rhysand &
Tamika Mia Corvere
HAHA ok sorry not sorry but I had to. I mean come on its Rhysand and wouldn’t that be amazing I would ship that for sure 😉 he is for sure my book boyfriend of choice and I think he is amazing and you will not convince me otherwise. But back to the actual potential match Rhys and Mia. I find this Match so interesting although I should mention I have not read Godsgrave yet so am not sure how Mia’s character developed there so this is based on Nevernight Mia. I think these two could Wreak havoc together. They both have sharp tongues so there would never be a dull conversation. I think Mia and Amren might get along a little too well and blood would run in the streets whenever they willed it. So I think although Rhys’s dark side would get along well with Mia and if that was all of his character they would make a great match for each other. But I also think Mia is too focused on vengeance possibly to appeal to Rhysand’s many other personality traits.
Verdict: Mostly R.I.P it but a little ship it
Note: Rhysand is from the ACOTAR series by Sarah J Maas and Mia Corvere is from the Nevernight series by Jay Kristoff.
Match 4: Manon & Levi
HAHAHAH! Just Nope! Good, sweet, Funny Levi does not stand a chance. Manon would take one look at him and eat him whole with a smile on her face. Levi needs someone he can use his country boy charm on. Someone he can look after and just chill with. Manon does not need no one to look after her. She is a bad-ass lady and I do not think she has just chilled a day in her life. She was made for adventure to feel the wind on her face. Quite frankly Manon deserves nothing less than her equal someone who can take in all that she is, the 13 and their rides and no bulk and what they see. Manon’s got too much growing to do to settle with Levi. Sorry not sorry.
Verdict: a big fat R.I.P
Note: Manon is from the TOG series by Sarah J Maas and Levi is from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.
Match 5: Jem Carstairs & The Darkling
Well well wouldn’t these two be a true pairing of light and dark. I don’t think this would work at all. The Darkling would be too consumed with darkness and trying to rule the world where as Jem is dedicated to saving it. Plus Jem already has one dark and brooding man in his life and I don’t think Will would be too fond of The Darkling. In fact it’s highly likely Jem and Will would be sent to kill The Darkling no questions asked. And as much as I really love The Darkling I don’t think he would stand a chance!
Verdict: R.I.P it!!
Note: Jem is from The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare and The Darkling is from The Grisha series by Leigh Bardugo.
Well that was not a very successful round of matches! I think Manon and Levi were the most entertaining match of the bunch! Hopefully cupid will have better luck next time HAHA
What do you think of these matches? Do you agree with my verdicts or would you have said differently? Did you enjoy this post? Should I do more of them down the track? Let me know below!
