Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
This week is all about love and I decided to highlight some of the ships (as in relationships) that were sadly never meant to be (or survive). They are non-canon. A little definition:
“Simply put, “canon” or “canonical” is a word used to describe the official continuity of events and stories within a body of fictional works, while “non-canon” refers to anything that is not recognized as being part of the official timeline.”
So while these relationships didn’t happen in the actual story (or I have a few which did but were sadly not endgame) I just love them so much that I’ll forever be sad about them. Thankfully, we do have fanfiction and they can live on in my head!
Death Note’s Light and L
Look, I know this is not a romantic story in any way and that both these characters have other things on their mind than romance. Playing God and doling out justice and all that. But still I always felt like Light and L were soulmates in a way. If they wouldn’t be on opposite sides of this war, they’d be pretty good together. As friends, coworkers or yes, even romantically. I so wanted them to at least acknowledge this after the Yotsuba amnesia-arc… But at least I have fanfiction to get the HEA I’d want – I especially love this fanfiction called I Won’t Say and re-read it regularly.
Harry Potter’s Hermione and Draco
I just love a good enemies-to-lovers romance, okay? This could have been just that. I know when I first read the Harry Potter series I did love Ron and Hermione. And I still do. It’s just – there are other options that could have made the series even better. This could have been combined with the Draco redemption arc we all deserved.
Harry Potter’s Hermione and Fred or George Weasley
I love Hermione and the twins were always my favorite characters in the series and as such I think they deserved more scenes. But this is one of those ship options that I have always loved. The combination would have been a bit weird maybe, but if done well, SO EPIC! Though it’s been ages, I can’t count all the Hermione/Fred of Hermione/George fanfic I used to read.
Harry Potter’s Remus and Sirius
As much as I love Tonks, I will ALWAYS love this ship more. I want more marauders and I’m sorry but this ship just feels so right to me. This should have been canon all along!
The 100’s Clarke and Bellamy
I know we have one more season and everything is still possible, but I’m not holding out too much hope. I shipped these two from season one and though their friendship has also touched my heart, I want more for them!
Sherlock’s Sherlock and John
The bromance is awesome, but really this is obviously more than friendship. I don’t care how much John denies it, he loves this functional sociopath.
Friends’s Rachel and Joey
I’m sorry, don’t shoot me, but Rachel and Joey should have ended up together okay? Ross was no good for Rachel. Joey was obviously the better choice and I will never forgive the writers for just using Rachel/Joey as a stepping tool for Rachel/Ross version 289.
Star Wars’s Poe and Finn
Side note: I haven’t seen the final Star Wars yet, but I’m pretty sure this ship won’t be canon. But it should be. I mean, that lip bite! Both the actors are fans of the ship, and I feel like it’s such a missed chance to not go down that road.
Gossip Girl’s Blair and Dan
Though I loved the Blair/Chuck ship at first, it gradually grew more and more toxic and I just couldn’t handle it anymore. But Blair and Dan? I loved how they had their own little enemies to friends to lovers arc. It was so cute and refreshing and I sincerely hoped it would have been endgame. But alas, Blair went back to Chuck and I never watched Gossip Girl again.
what are some non-canon ships you love? DO we have some in common?
Also, feel free to send me all the fanfic recs for these ships!
