OTP meme!

Stolen from various people

1. The Joker/Batman – Batman: TAS
2. Jim Gordon/Oswald Cobblepot – Gotham (TV)
3. Lex Luthor/Superman – Superman: TAS
4. Caitlin Snow/Barry Allen – The Flash (TV)
5. Beatrice/Benedick – Much Ado About Nothing

1. Do you remember the episode/scene/chapter that you first started shipping 5?

Hmmmmmmm. Not exactly, because I started shipping them SO LONG AGO. But it was probably around the time of the whole ‘tricking them into loving each other’ scenes. Which are, of course, the best scenes that have ever been written.

2. Have you ever read fanfiction about 2?

Yes! Some good, some… Not so good. For some reason I have a ‘thing’ about pairing murderous psychopaths with absolute heroes and not having either of them change their morals at the end of the day. Which means that most redemption/corruption fics have me staring at the screen in complete puzzlement.

3. Has a picture of 4 ever been your screen saver/profile picture/tumblr ID?

Not as of yet. But I do have an icon of them which I really like! And, you know, The Flash is probably the fandom of mine that – at the moment – is going to stick around for the longest. So you never know!

4. If 3 were to suddenly break up today, what would your reaction be?

Uhhhhhh, probably sadness? Even though it’s probably best for the both of them. I mean – one is an often-evil billionaire with loads of Kryptonite, the other is an always-great alien superhero who’s allergic to Kryptonite. They’re possibly the definition of a toxic couple.

…I like them because they’re complicated? <<

5. Why is 1 so important?

I will be honest here: they aren’t. It’s just my brain doing its usual thing of taking a slightly cracky pairing, and then running with it until I somehow regard it as completely serious.

6. Is 4 a funny ship or a serious ship?

It depends! They can be adorably silly dorks, but then they also save the world despite unrequited love and dead fiancées all over the place. They have ~RANGE~.

7. Out of all your ships listed, which ship has the most chemistry?

Well Lex is a scientist, so- BEATRICE/BENEDICK

8. Of all the ships, which ship has the strongest bond?

Part of the reason I like The Joker/Batman so much is because of their crazy strong, crazy creepy tie to each other. The Joker wouldn’t exist without Batman, point blank, and Batman would be quite a bit different without the Joker there to fuck up his life on a semi-permanent basis. So, yes.

9. How many times have you read/watched 2’s fandom?

Watching through it for the first time now! It’s one of those things that we may well wait a while to rewatch, though, because it’s quite heavy and we have a LOT to catch up on.

10. Which ship lasted the longest?

OH, MAN! Erm. Honestly? I’m not sure. But a large part of me wants The Joker/Batman torturing each other deep into their old age – when they both need walking sticks and Bruce has attained his true life goal of becoming the grumpiest old man ever – so I’m going to settle for that.

11. How many times, if ever, has 5 broken up?

I’m not sure that I approve of these myriad questions about breaking up my OTPs, meme. I know that the majority of them are quite unhealthy, but let me live in my happy world of denial mmmkay?

That said: depending on the adaptation/reading, once before the play started. And then they fall back in love and have sex forever and that is that.

12. If the world was suddenly thrust into a zombie apocalypse, which ship would make it out alive, 1 or 3?

The only thing I can think of here is that Superman and Batman would team up and drag along their villainous boyfriends with them. So, yeah, my bet is on them all surviving. Despite the Joker almost killing all of them multiple times, in multiple different ways.

(On a side note I’ve read, like, two Batman/The Joker zombie AUs and they were both very good. I kinda want to write a Superman/Lex Luthor zombie AU to even the balance, but I’m not entirely sure where to start.)

13. Did 4 ever have to hide their relationship for any reason?

Well, they’re not canon – but if they DID ever get together I can imagine them hiding it from everybody at the beginning until they were surer of themselves/because Barry was scared about people targeting her. And then, of course, people target her anyway and he has to save her and they make out in front of everybody and Iris leads the cheering party and…

I’m gonna stop now.

14. Is 5 still together?


15. The Joker has eaten this question, apparently.

16. If all five ships were put into a couple’s Hunger Games, which couple would win?

Oddly enough I’m gonna have to go for Beatrice/Benedick. Because Barry/Caitlin are too innocent to live, and the rest of them would probably slaughter each other brutally instead of even trying to figure anything else out.

It would be very sad, but Beatrice is cool with it SO.

17. Has anyone ever tried to sabotage 5’s ship?

Not really, I don’t think? In fact, numerous groups of people have tried to LAUNCH it.

18. Which ship(s) would you defend to the death and beyond?

Beatrice/Benedick is probably the only one I could muster up the energy for, to be honest. I do like the rest a great deal, but I fully admit that I have a weird taste in shipping and so at least 3/5 of them are very much not to other people’s taste. And as for the other one… I really love Barry/Caitlin, and I think they’d be a better couple than Barry/Iris (I love Iris! I do! I just don’t think they should be dating!), but it’s more a ‘Awwww they would be cute together’ sort of thing. Not a PISTOLS AT DAWN type situation.

19. Have you ever spent hours a day going through 3’s tumblr page?

Uhhhh yes, actually. Though it was for Smallville, which I’ve never watched. And it was after I officially left tumblr, so it was a bit awkward to navigate.

20. If an evil witch descended from the sky and told you that you had to pick one of the five ships to break up forever, which ship would you sink?


As a result my answer is that I would set Batman and Superman (and Barry, actually!) on her, because they deal with witches regularly. And then Jim Gordon can arrest her afterwards. And then Beatrice can go throw tomatoes at her while she’s actually in jail. Because that’s the only appropriate punishment for a strange witch who descends from the sky via a dubious contraption.

I have it. I haven't read it yet, but she's often reccommended as a good historical fiction author. I'll get round to reading and reviewing it eventually :)

I wasn't originally gonna post it, and then I had so much fun answering that I sort of had to. XD


(Yessssss. I love Clark/Lex, they just really interest me in so many ways. And there's a surprising amount of good long!fic for them! (I may have read two 20000 word stories featuring them yesterday, shhhh.))
