So I was looking around for an interesting book tag for this week. I think I’ve done plenty of New Year and reflecting on 2019 stuff now and wanted to try something different. I found the RIP It or Ship It tag and decided it was perfect. The original tag was created by Emma’s Books and you should definitely check her videos out here.
The rules of the game are simple, to put a lot of fictional characters’ names into a cup and draw them out two at a time. I’m going to change it up a little. I’ve picked twenty characters and I’m going to roll two twenty-sided dice (D20) at a time and pair them up! Once I have a pairing, I’ll tell you if I RIP it or if I ship it.
Emma Carstairs (from Shadowhunters) & Janek (from Finding Home)
I think Emma would probably be a bit too intense for Janek and I feel like Emma would probably prefer some who would be better with a sword. RIP it.
Ezra Mason (from Illuminae) & Finnian (from Aurora Rising)
SHIP IT. This would be hilarious! Finn is super cocky and full of banter and I think him and Ezra would get along really well. I’m not sure Ezra would be too interested as it’s obvious how he feels about Kady but I’d like to think maybe before they got together maybe Ez and Finn could have had a thing.
Lira (from To Kill a Kingdom) & Paige Turner (from The Bookshop Girl)
Ship it. I feel like Paige would end up being utterly smitten with Lira because, HELLOOO SIREN?! And I can imagine Lira thinking Paige is adorable and bring Lira a TON of different books to read.
Issac Sullivan (from the Devouring Gray) & Sookie Stackhouse (From the Sookie Stackhouse books/True Blood)
This feels weird because of the age difference mainly. I thought that I would be okay with Sookie ending up with anyone else in the series from the
Lyra Daniels (from Navigating the Stars) & Izzy O’Neil (from The Exact Opposite of Okay)
Ship it. This is another one I think would be really lovely. I’m not sure who would be the worst influence on who though to be honest. They would absolutely get into trouble but I have no doubt they would have each others backs and it would be hilarious.
Remy Silvers (From The Loneliest Girl in the Universe) & Spensa (from Skyward)
Oooo I feel like can’t not ship the two space girls? Although I feel like they’re very different people so I’m not sure how they would get on in a relationship. Come to think of it I feel like they would argue a lot over silly things. RIP it.
Remy is utterly unimpressed by Spensa because she takes so many risks and doesn’t always think about the risks she’s taking but Spensa keeps doing more and more stupid things to try and impress her. I changed my mind. I ship it.
Dorian (from a Throne of Glass) & Luna Lovegood (from Harry Potter)
Nope. This one feels weird. I adore Luna and Dorian can be sweet but he has FAR too much baggage and I don’t want to imagine him hurting my sweet girl. RIP it.
Janco (from Poison Study) & Gwen (from Once and Future)
Even if I could tweak the ages for this to be less weird I don’t think it would work and I wouldn’t want to see Janco get hurt by Gwen’s aspirations. Plus I think he might drive her nuts. RIP it.
Lucien Vanserra (from A Court of Thorns and Roses) & Jude Duarte (from The Cruel Prince)
YES. I SHIP IT. I mean I hadn’t really thought about it before but this would be amazing. I feel like this would have all the spirit of the Jude/Cardan ship but with added Lucien soft boy at times Vanserra. Perfect.
Mia Corverre (from Nevernight) & Kaz Brekker (from Six of Crows)
This feels like an interesting one. I haven’t finished Six of Crows yet but this was a suggestion given when I asked for characters and I feel like they definitely have their similarities but I’m not sure if they would go together well. If you’ve read SoC and the Nevernight books let me know what you think? For now, I’m going to say RIP it.
Well, that was certainly interesting! I pretty much ship anyone and everyone most of the time but there were definitely some that fit there better than others. I think my favourite here would maybe be Lucien and Jude or Lira and Paige! See any here you love? What two fictional characters from different books would you ship?
